It’s a lazy Saturday morning/afternoon and I admit I wasn’t fully awake at the time, so when I glance at the TV and see a color commentator wearing a Snuggie it was one of those “nah… you’re trippin” moments. Sure enough, when I rewound the DVR my suspicions were confirmed.
Sorry bud, I refuse to take you serious as an expert if you speak to me wearing a blanket/jacket hybrid. I realize black people don’t do well in the cold but…. C’mon son.
It’s equally ridiculous that they’re calling the “Papajohns.com Bowl”, I wonder if my friends and I could scrape up enough pennies to sponsor a bowl game? They’ll obviously give them to anyone who is willing to pay for it.
I must say….. the ESPN producers must have asked Skip Bayless to take it easy on Wayne, because he’s on the best behavior I’ve ever seen him thusfar. Wayne isn’t completely embarrassing himself, he’s tripped up here and there on a few parts but overall he can hold his own. Both of these guys seem really subdued compared to their usual selves so the results are kinda disappointing.
Boooooooooo… I wanted Wayne to stumble onto the set with a styrophone cup in his hand while quoting Shakespear. Skip kisses Wayne’s ass for a while, and even helps him out when he stumbles (the part about the Titans).
Have any of you guys ever heard of the practice of parents holding their kids out of kindergarden an extra year so they will be bigger than their peers, and thus better at sports? I was reading a mommy blog (n/h), and came across a story on “redshirting” and it blew my mind.
“Like many parents around here, Brent’s parents are obsessed with their children’s participation in sports. Brent was already on soccer, baseball and football teams. When we socialized, they often speculated about which sports he’d choose to play in high school, and whether he’d qualify for a college sports scholarship. And I’d been hearing a lot lately about the growing trend of “redshirting” little boys, keeping them out of school an extra year so that they would be more mature, smarter, more physically developed and, hopefully, better at sports in high school.”
I’m not exactly sure what to think about this, but it sure is interesting. Here’s an NY Times article on the subject as well
Stank-0 thinks this was the right move. LSU and Les “Money” Miles gave Ryan Perrilloux chance after chance after chance. LSU has released the kid. Perrilloux was expected to inherit the reins of the team after Matt Flynn finished up his career. This had to be done. The kid was attracted to problems. At some point, you have to cut your losses.
The only problem is now a freshman and an untested junior are all that’s left in the QB cupboard. They also are in the most physical, quickest, and toughest conference in college football, the SEC. This doesn’t help their national title chances, but no one expected a 2 loss team to reach the championship game last year, either.
This contract also has incentives, depending on team performance on the field and in the classroom. Translation: win more ‘ships and you get more cake! Or graduate all those criminal justice majors and you get more fetti! Stank-0 is fairly certain if Miles fails to win a title but has a high graduation rate, he won’t get a new deal. Just call it a hunch.
Can we start callin Les, Money Miles? Just wonderin. There are some professional athletes that don’t clock that much a season.
