I had a brain freeze on number 4...should have just put in Pride of The Yankees...thought I would give a shout out to the Bravos back in the day when they were crap...
First things first...the radio show is top shelf...and the work around the paywall is still viable lol...I tend to agree that the FCS schools will not be as severely damaged as some might believe...in my crystal ball I still see a 3-5 year stay for the Mocs in the SoCon, and provided they make a mockery of what used to be the SEC of the FCS its on to bigger things such as what is left of the FBS after the big 5 conferences leave...go mocs
Rushmore of under appreciated sports movies...
Dead Solid Perfect (Made for TV movie)- Randy Quaid back when he wasn't running off on hotel bills
Pride of St. Louis - Dan Daly as Dizzy Dean...the bumpkin who is still one of the best baseball announcers EVER
Junction Boys - Tom Berenger (Big Chill and Platoon) as THE BEAR..Could today's players put up with the like of a Bear Bryant today?
Finally and don't laugh JG...The Slugger's Wife - a nice Neil Simon yarn of an Atlanta (Power Blue doubleknits) Braves player and the trials and tribulations on and off the field..if not mistaken this was Michael O'Keefe's big shot after Caddyshack, and Rebecca DeMornay during her heyday after Risky Business...
Apologies for long long absence...however, was able to work around the paywall this once...On the Vonn Bell incident, seems most of those rumors (from my research) were started on Clorox Orange message boards, and then the fire was fueled by that outstanding former QB Erik Ainge...I have a lot of respect for Butch Jones, perhaps he needs to have a talk with some fans AND former players about showing some class...I refrained from listening to talk radio yesterday, so as not to have to fight the urge to call in...
WELL I WANTED TO GO OUT WITH A BANG...I AM NOW GETTING POP UPS SAYING I MUST HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION IN ORDER TO KEEP VIEWING...WILL JUST HAVE TO BE MYSELF ON TWITTER, ETC
So you ask the anti LJ folks to name ten better? Jabbar, Jordan, Wilt, Russell, Magic, Robertson, Bird, West, Baylor, Havlicek...do I need to continue????
Rest In Peace to a guy that each and every rasslin fan in town watched LIVE on Saturday afternoon from the studios of Ch 3 on McCallie or Ch 12 on Broad St...rasslin legend Jackie Fargo
Great stuff this week JG...your courage in the wake of last nights dousing of the Heat is admirable.
Clorox Orange fans never cease to amaze me...if you don't want to read about the best college football program in all the land, then poke your eyes out so you don't have to LOL.
Rushmore of foreign country events would have to belly flopping in Alabama (see equal opportunity).
A sports movie recommendation for you JG..."The Harder They Fall", a boxing film and Bogarts final performance...great film watch it each and every time and even has Max Baer, no not Jethro Bodine, but his dad the one time heavyweight champ.
2013 football season officially begins in Chattanooga tomorrow night!
First off the NCAA and the stuff with Vanderdoes...sticky wicket indeed, first off if there were not so many recruiting GEEKS, and the world wide leader who has made such a spectacle of signing day, i.e. Vonn Bell, interesting it was never reported that up to 90% of those in attendance (fans) that morning who were wearing clorox orange walked out the moment the words THE Ohio State were uttered and kind words were not spoken about young Bell by those bearing the roadside trash pick up colors...perhaps if recruiting were not what it has become things like this might not be so prevalent...
The Weekley's are to be commended for the job the did this season, but for those of us are follow the sport, realize that this OU team might very well be the best team in WCWS history, as much love is given to the Lady Vols, let those fans also remember that despite the record of this past season, our Lady Mocs are still considered one of the better programs in NCAA...Remember not that long ago, they were one win away from the Super Regionals
In a word Gee is an IDIOT...but that anti catholic sentiment does exist...was obvious in the lead up to the BCS game...very offensive jokes made by Bama fans regarding the Catholic faith..
Congrats to Puig, great start to his big league career, and he can forget about those lunatics who felt his little traffic escapade here in river city deserved some sort of punishment from the team
Campanis is of course the leader add in Jimmy The Greek, Cosell, John DA Rocker and Marge Schott
MLB suspends players for PED usage...SAY IT AINT SO JOSE, SAY IT AINT SO!!!! Maybe we can forever rid the Yankees of A-Rod, he will never be a true Yankee...Want to bet he DOESNT get his number retired???
THANK YOU JG FOR REFRAINING FROM LEBRON TODAY...MUCH OBLIGED LOL
JG...I am indeed worried about you, that is more than one Beeber ref in the past several days...That is almost as bad as The Stones who have recently had Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift on stage with them, during what is probably their swan song tour...what is next our little local karaoke queen...
Congrats to the Heat, I know all the Lebron worshippers are happy...
Indeed what a great game last night between OU and the Lady Vols and have you noticed that Knoxville and Chattanooga are one of the few remaining schools to use the "Lady" moniker...second best game I have ever seen...tops on my list was 2008 when Lauren Flores hit a extra inning grand slam as the Lady Mocs beat Kentucky.
All those basketball movies and not one shout out to "The Fish That Saved Pittsburg"
Big Kudos for the Chipper Jones get...as a former regular attendee, hate I will miss this one
Worst celebrity to be involved in foreign relations? Hands down Gary Busey!
MocTastic just did not have the heart to offend anyone, but interesting that Douglas talks about this right on the heels of playing Liberace in a HBO film
