But 5, if you win your regular season in a non-big time conference, your reward is getting the top seed to feast on the crap teams in your less than stellar conference. And if you can't beat them in your conference tournament, do you really deserve a shot? Granted, it happens, though rarely, where a sub .500 team makes the conference championship game and pulls off a stunner. I think that only adds to the allure. And if you're the regular season champ and face the tournament champ after you didn't win it, do you deserve a second shot?
Two weeks for Nique to get five assists? Try two months. Still believe the Hawks chances for anything ever ended the day they signed Reggie Theus. Theus, Nique and Moses on the same team? Unless they went and got Bob Cousy, who was ever gonna pass the basketball?
The college Rushmore ... Alcindor, Walton, David Thompson, Len Bias. The Spy will now close his office door and wipe a tear away thinking about Len Bias. Almost want to substitute Pistol Pete for Lew.
So Struggla's hitting .300 in spring training. There are fewer emptier numbers than those generated in exhibition seasons.
Dan Patrick has been railing about how unwatchable college hoops has become. I don't know. I watched T.J. Warren from N.C. State put on a show the other night against a good Pitt team in Pittsburgh. There was last night's Tech shocker in the Carrier Dome (Syracuse is an underrated town. It's also usually under eight feet of snow, but it is an underrated town).
The throwbacks (more like throw, followed by a different directional word) of the Broncos and Steelers specifically are ghastly. The Alex English-Dan Issel era Denver Nuggets unis ... also not good. The Vancouver Canucks, circa 1982, also an experiment in ugly.
So Golf Channel, in honor of National Pancake Day, had Brooke Pancake for their Morning Drive show. She talked about her husband Derek. She didn't marry Derek Rende, did she?
Once Busty Cops 2 wasn't nominated for an Oscar, I wasn't going to watch.
5, thanks for taking my comment. First time listener, long time commenter.
Rory had an epic crapfest on the back nine and then pulls off an unbelievable shot into 18 for an eagle and a chance to win. And then misses the putt. It did not help the PGA that their other luminary, one middle-aging Lefty, wasn't around for the weekend.
Bigger waste of time - Super Bowl pre-game or the Oscars? Both about as long. Both about as necessary. And really, you can replace Oscars with Golden Globes, Emmys, Grammys and any of the 18 country music awards shows there are and to me, the question is just as viable.
There are a lot of things said - and done - at the bottom of a pile on top of a loose ball that never get talked about, deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that ball, you need me on that ball. wait ... where was I? Oh, yeah, have fun enforcing that kinda stuff, Kaiser Goodell.
well, I mean, you know, Lou was kind of dead (there's dead, and there's mostly dead. I'd throw in a personal thing but let's not bring the room down. Even if it was funny to me) by the time Tom Emanski came up with those drills. And why didn't Crime Dog get more accolades for his acting chops in those commercials?
History Channel and catfish. Great way to spend an evening, 5.
With Crime Dog and Iron Horse, it's a little hard to compare numbers through the generations. While the right field porch at Yankee Stadium was short, the mounds also were 15 inches. And there were expansive outfields like the Polo Grounds, nearly 500 feet to center, and Tiger Stadium to dead center was no pop fly. Plus, how often did McGriff lead the league in HRs and RBIs and what were his MVP voting numbers? That factors in, too.
Hard not to go with Duvall and DeNiro, with Freeman right up there. Or Dolph Lundgren.
