White Goodman—Dodgeball. He had Blazer, Laser, and rest of crew ready to beat up on Average Joe's gym. BTW try the Princess Breakfast at the gentleman's club across the street from the Magic Kingdom. Same cost suprisingly.
You love the draft, we love the draft, the drafts loved Dave Winfield. Winfield was drafted by four teams in three different sports. The San Diego Padres selected him as a pitcher with the fourth overall pick in the MLB draft and both the Atlanta Hawks (NBA) and the Utah Stars (ABA) drafted him. Even though he never played college football, the Minnesota Vikings selected Winfield in the 17th round of the NFL draft.
To follow up on OG, which four current QBs would you want to lead your team in the last 2 minutes of the Super Bowl if you are trailing by 4 and need a TD? I'm going Brady, Rodgers, Manning (Eli), ?????
I would have included Peyton amongst the losers. Three turnovers including a brain cramp on the last possession that led to the winning FG were his undoing. He may go down as the greatest regular season quarterback of all time but a nine and eleven record (including 8 first round losses) play-off record keeps him from being the greatest ever.
The Lombardi trophy, simple design, good size, instantly recognizable might warrant the Stanley Cup spot. The Stanley Cup is awesome because of the names and the fact that some the players take it to their hometowns for a while. What if Reggie White had brought the Lombardi back to Chatty. The green jacket, Heisman, and Olympic Medal for anything other than synchronized swimming or curling are great picks.
Good stuff today -- favorite Xmas song is I'll Be Home for Christmas. I saw another Xmas movie over the weekend that nobody mentioned last week - Trading Places. Aykroyd dressed as a drunk Santa with the white leather shoes, top shelf comedy.
Three more movies to add to the list: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles; Elf; and Bad Santa. The last one is a little out there. Another movie to fill in the bracket is the Muppets, A Christmas Carol.
The Clay Travis piece is excellent, great line that cannot be used here, but will be used. Back when all this started I commented that I thought Al Golden would be the next coach. He has to be a better option than "the hat part deux". It looks like another lost year of recruiting on Rocky Top.
Best name -- Macon Whoopee ECHL, Milwaukee Brewers (beer is always good
Worse name -- Chicago Cubs, off spring of the football team?
Three to change -- KC Royals to the Serfs, nothing royal about them. Indiana Pacers, get the race reference, just pace yourself? Anaheim Ducks -- ducks take to ice how exactly? I know the Disney ties but that was a while ago.
