What a glorious day!!! The Indians beat up the Clemens-less Houston Astros, it looks like the Browns will get a first- and third-round draft pick for Derek Anderson in addition to trade talk about sending a second-round pick to the Green Bay Packers for defensive tackle Corey Williams, the Cavs have a winnable game tonight against Minnesota, I’m going to the Cavs game Sunday to watch them play Larry Hughes and Drew Gooden and the Bulls, it’s Friday, the sun is shining (well not really, it’s snowing like crazy) and best of all, Sean Salisbury is gone from ESPN. Hip, hip, hurray!!! Dig dong the witch is dead!!! Rejoice and be glad!!! This could be the greatest day in ESPN history. In addition to the crappiest quarterback turned crappiest analyst, the world wide leader will bring in Bob Knight as a guest analyst through the rest of the college basketball season. I feel like I have died and gone to heaven. I can finally watch NFL Live again and have a great reason to watch ESPN College Gameday. Great moves by ESPN. I don’t even care who they get to replace Salisbury. Cris Carter is coming in and that’s like upgrading from Troy Brown to Randy Moss as your number one receiver.
I never understood how Salisbury got to be the lead NFL analyst. He was a horrible quarterback in his day and he brought nothing to the table on TV. He was annoying, loud and thought he was the greatest thing to happen to the NFL since the two-point conversion. Basically he was the white Steven A. Smith. Now if only ESPN would get rid of SAS.
As for the Browns, I hope they do just want it looks like they’ll do. Getting a first- and third-round pick for DA would be great. Like I said yesterday, it will probably be a top eight pick and they can get one of the four defensive linemen that will be gone by pick eight. Then to trade their second-round pick for a above quality d-lineman who is probably better than anyone they could draft in the second-round would be a great move.
The Cavs need a win tonight. Minnesota is about as crappy as Memphis so hopefully it will be a game like last Sunday. But the big game this weekend is against Chicago. Now we have even more reason to hate the Bulls with Gooden and Hughes, especially. I don’t know how to react to Hughes. Should we booo the hell out of him or should we cheer him for not being on the team any more? I think we should do a little bit of both. But every time he takes a shoot we should cheer wildly because that will be the best defense for the Cavs. Shoot, Larry, shoot. Now that that greatest site of all time, heylarryhughespleasestoptakingsomanybadshots.com is out of business, maybe Larry will go back to taking bad shots (every shot he takes is a bad shot).
As good as it will be to see Hughes suck it up for some other team, what I’m looking forward to the most is seeing Billy Thomas. Please, Mike Brown, if you have a soul and care for the fans of the Cavs, you will play Billy. Even if he doesn’t get in, there’s a good chance I’ll wait for him outside the arena to get his autograph. PLEASE PUT IN BILLY THOMAS.
At the very least it should be an interesting weekend with Cleveland teams. In addition to all that, the college is down to its final two regular season weekends. March Madness is right around the corner. Anyone else getting a little excited about that?
Enjoy the weekend.
