Thanks for the head's up on the less than savory critique of Weeds' work.
Busch & Stuck
Big Shot Bob was among the most clutch shooters ever — and what a great nickname. But the question remains, if you add either of those two, who are you taking off the big board?
And Busch, you are spot-on — championship deciding Game 7s in any sport are appointment TV.
Price was the first one off our list (although we can see Curry surpassing him soon). The Rifleman is on par with Vinnie Johnson for a) the streakiest shooters alive and b) world-class nickname.
Concur across the board. Ray Allen saved LBJ several "Do you think this kills your legacy" type questions.
We know that UTC knows of Mr. Jumper's change of plans, we'll say that.

Robert Horry has to be on that last, just because of the mention of big moments.
It was fun on Twitter last night. Most fun I've ever had on Twitter really was watching that game with everyone else. Still can't get over it....
I was up until 1 because of the intensity of the game, finally got to sleep, and woke up at 2:20 for a while thinking about the game. It was that good...
Agreed that Steph is a great shooter. In fact, Steph has done way, Way, WAY better as an NBA player than we ever imagined.
That said, he's likely a top 10 guy of the modern era, but if he's on your Rushmore, which of those four do you take off.
If we had a second Rushmore, we'd look at any of the four from Dale Ellis, Drazen Petrovic, Stevie Kerr, Allan Houston, Steph Curry and maybe Mark Price.
I like Steak, Nick and Dimino. That said, they got what they deserved, deserved what they got.
Stupid and callous and insensitive. And this is hardly coming from a PC police type of guy.
Still there's witty and classy and dim-witted and classless.
This was the latter. In spades.
As for the suit, Hargis' Col. Sanders linen number is a peach hun. (Mrs. Haverkamp... Mrs. Haverkamp... Oh golly we're hot today.)
Phil has one more in him tops.
Tiger has either five-plus or zero. We believe the longer he goes the longer the odds. That said, if can crack the seal between now and next April, he could go on a run.
As for the doubleheader, we think the tail is wagging the dog. Think of all the complaints about baseball — prices, too long, late games etc. — and a DH addresses each in some way.
Plus, about the extra tickets, well most of the tickets used are season tickets and they could still be sold to cost.
We don't think they are coming back either MT, and your reason is the ultimate cause, but it's another killed tradition, you know?
As Uncle Buck would say, your UK predicition is in the books.
David Ortiz bunted once against the shift. I guess that the opposing managers figure that if a guy is going to bunt that can hit for power- well, that's better than them hitting a homerun. I guess. I don't know. It seems odd to me. Particularly to the leadoff hitter of the inning, why would that guy not want to just get on base anyway he could. With two outs, maybe the strategy changes, but with no outs, I agree with you. This is one of the more puzzling things about modern baseball to me.

Since comments aren't on for the 5 at 10 (who needs to flip that switch), I'll say this much.
Sure, this NBA Finals series is tight at 3-2. But the games ... just not that compelling. Aside from Game 1, nothing has been must-watch in the fourth quarter. It's a dud of a series.
Having seen Bowie live in concert, I'd say the Thin White Duke for Riverbend. Dude put on a tremendous show lo these many years ago in Jacksonville and it also led to one of my favorite concert stories. Couple of guys were shoving and about to start trading punches when another guy comes up and says, "Hey, man, this is Bowie, not Skynyrd." I said, "Um, you may want to remember what city we're in and be careful saying anything about Skynyrd."
And I was remiss in not wishing you and 5 Pop Happy Father's Day. So ... Happy Father's Day.
Sorry for the comments being turned off//.
We're better now thanks.
Have a great day and we'll tell Chipper you said hello.
Vince Morrow's a better recruiter than Vic Morrow's Coach Roy Turner, huh?
If you could make Berman go away from golf coverage, we'd never mention ol' Orange Britches ever again.
Mr. Fox is T-127th at +11 with three holes to play.
And Rodney was better than Donnie. Rodney had a 6-5 year, no? The Sextuplets ended any chance he had.
Every time we start talking about bad coaching a Tech man got to pull Bill Lewis out the sky.
It's a fair point though.
No run is over until we decided it is. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? No. And it ain't over now.
FE to the C —
We may not know much but size and speed is a great combination.
Amen on Ms. Dooley.
And we were in the stands at Jordan-Hare when Curley Hallman's Tigers lost to Auburn 30-26 even though Auburn did not score an offensive TD. Auburn returned three second-half picks for TDs, yet here was Curley, still slinging it around. Good times.
And yes, as a coach, Ray Goff was a heck of BID-ness man. He owns like a couple dozen Zaxby's or something like that.
James Stovall is a great, Great, GREAT get for the Mocs. Dude will contribute right away. May be the best WR on the Mocs roster right now — Silk included.
Spot on that LBJ has come a long way since 2010.
We're hoping for drama tonight — and for LBJ bringing the goods.
And yes Stuck, we're planning on some Twitterisms tonight. (Yes, Spy we made up Twitterisms.)
This is our forum — all of us — and any suggested reading is more than appreciated. If you are interested, pass it along. That said, we only dislike two types of people — those intolerant of other cultures and the Dutch.
Football takes longer to play than baseball. Football has huddles, time stopping when a guy goes out of bounds or throws an incomplete pass, etc. Why does football get a pass when baseball does not on length (and pace) of play?
College baseball has a pitch clock. Once a guy steps on the mound, he has 20 seconds to pitch the ball. Seems reasonable. Speeds up the game a little bit, but doesn't do anything drastic to the overall style of play. I think baseball should do that at the major league level.
Planning on live-tweeting the game tonight?
