FYI..Jeter was not on my list...Mantel was lol...he was leaps and bounds more popular than #2 Derek Jeter, Jeter #2
WRS, I intentionally left Jordon off my list just to make some think...and you know JG will bash Joe Willie Broadway Joe lol...although I came very close to including him, but deferred to Mr. Bollea
Interesting about the scandal...being there is a new one heating up with Justin Verlander and some rather provocative photos with he and I believe Kate Upton...you could have Mr. Farve and his sexting binge a while back...how about Ricky Petino and his dalliances...and for crying out loud FORE Tiger and his waitress fetish...so so many more how about the man who snitched and plea bargained his way out of murder charges, can you name him? Seems the worldwide leader did not have a problem hiring him...
I will give you Arnie on the list, he will always be thought of as the man who brought golf to the masses...young whippersnappers will not realize before there was #2 Derek Jeter, Jeter #2, there was a man tremendously more popular and that is Mickey Mantle, who still may be the best to ever play the game even with two bad wheels...around these parts might even have to throw a bone to the clorox orange and put Peyton Poo on the list, although it is still Eli 2-0 and Peyton 1-3 in the big game, oops Seahawks just scored again...and what the heck, during the 80's you will not find any athlete more popular than Hulk Hogan, say what you will, but anyone that thinks rasslin isn't athletic is wearing blinders, and I will take you and let you see some of these folks at work and see just how tough it is
Not much comment on the game Saturday night...however I will chime in on the Rushmore of female singers...There are no others to even be considered....First on the list is Linda Rondstadt if you were and JG wasnt around during the 70's (she was the biggest selling female artist of the decade) you missed the voice of a lifetime...Patsy Cline indeed belongs and a huge influence on Linda...Dione Warwick and I am going to throw a more recent artist on the Rushmore and that would be Amy Winehouse, a true talent with huge demons
well said chas...these young whippersnappers (under 40ish) have no clue about growing up when there were real talents
JG...I had children when New Kids broke, so no I dont remember lol...music begins and ends with the best selling act in history...John, Paul, George, and Ringo lol
This will be one of those seasons where the Super Bowl champs REPEAT...book it, take it to the bank..Seahawks are the best in the league and second is not that close...but then again everyone here thinks Peyton is entitled lol, although Eli is still unbeaten in Super Bowls heheheh...
Mike Piazza is indeed getting shafted, the guy was a next to nothing draft pick that turned out to be one of the all-time best among catchers that could hit...
Beyonce??? Beyonce??? Queen of the lip sync??? Tons of people with boatloads more true talent than her...Justin Timberlake is tops on the list, although my years will deceive, he IS the modern day Sinatra, can sing and act rather well...Top concert draw so far this year is occupied by the number two on the Rushmore, George Strait, who actually does COUNTRY music, not this insane skinny jeans crap that passes for hillbilly music today...Third, you must still include Mick Jagger on there and yes he is current because the Stones still pack 'em in each and every time they tour...Last but and a nod to the tweeners, Taylor Swift the kid can sell records, draw incredible numbers on tour, and just broke a new single on top of the charts...Then again, I could have included some of the niche artists that so-called music snobs bring to Noogaville (tongue firmly planted in cheek)
There are NO EXCUSES for fewer than 17,000 at Finley Saturday NONE WHATSOEVER!!!
The drama in the NFL is rather intense I would say, Mark Cuban is quoted as saying the NFL will implode within a decade...I remember growing up you had NFL on Sunday and then Monday night..now you have NETWORK (CBS) taking Thursday...Cuban goes on to say there is too much television, not to mention adding a team in London ANGLAND (veiled Ernest T. Bass reference)...
Ironic that todays 5 at 10 is talking NFC, but there is a photo of Peyton Poo, NOT the Super Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson...Seahawks take the Lombardi again...best team in the league and second isn't even close..
JMC you are spot on with your perception...I would say something but I shall refrain...It is indeed sad when the mighty JR is gone, Mocs game tonight is an afterthought on sports reports and not one mention of the Lookouts and Smokies division deciding series starting tonight...perhaps you can go to Riverfront Nights and enjoy the money the Blue Cross shelled out to enjoy some his favorite NOBODY HAS EVER HEARD of bands lol
JMC there is so much ill will against the Mocs today, and I guess they want to suffer through another washed out year by the Clorox Orange...who knows what their issue is with the Mocs program...The most idiotic thing I heard all week was Jeff Styles asking Jim Reynolds on air, if the Mocs could compete attendance-wise with the CFC...my god, is Styles that far removed from reality?????
