>>> The Yankees and Devil Rays got into a brawl during a spring training game. Really, Yankees? The Devil Rays? In spring training? My how the mighty have fallen. This is kind of like the once feared bully of the playground realizing no one is scared of him anymore so he goes to the kindergartners and picks on them just to feed is ego.
>>> Did you see the story about a guy who impersonated Nicholas Cage and got the “star” treatment at a European soccer game? A couple things bother me about this. First, if you could pull of a Nick Cage impression that well, why would you go to a European soccer game? There are about 1,634 things better to do than that. And two, if there are two Nick Cage’s running around on this world I want to kill myself.
>>> John Daly is at it again. I love JD but it hasn’t been a good week for him. Butch Harmon, his swing coach, fired him. Didn’t Daly hire him? How can Harmon fire JD? Then Daly misses his pro-am tee time and gets disqualified and in turn got two other alternates disqualified. The quote of the day came from Harmon; “My whole goal for him was he’s got to show me golf is the most important thing in his life. And the most important thing in his life is getting drunk.” I don’t know what to make of this. It’s John Daly. What else can you expect? No one cares how good his golf game is. He’s fat, funny, drinks, smokes and is the perfect everyday man for fans to love. He plays golf for a living, even though he sucks at it now, and he drinks beer and womanizes all night. Sounds good to me. Harmon quit after the way JD acted last week. Daly had Jon Gruden caddie for him after a rain delay and when he missed the cut, he spent Saturday at Hooters drinking beer, mingling with fans and signing autographs, including “one on the back of a woman’s pants.” That’s the JD we all know and love. John Daly’s autobiography is something I really want to read. But if you get a chance read Rick Reilly’s “Who’s Your Caddy?” It’s a book where Reilly goes around and caddies for a bunch of different people. One chapter he caddies for Daly. It might be the best 30-40 pages of a book I’ve ever read. Daly is funniest man alive. At one point, Reilly found out the real reason they call him Long John. Keep up the good work JD.
>>> Thanks to handicap people, The Big House is no longer the biggest house in the country. Michigan Stadium will drop it’s capacity seating from 107,501 to 106,201. PSU’s Beaver Stadium seats 107,282. Michigan will regain the top spot in 2010 after the expansion and renovations are completed. The reason the drop in seating; they had to take some seats out to put in handicap seats. Once again, handicap people make the world a worse place.
>>> Did the Cavs play last night? They looked horrible again. They were so bad not even LeBron or Billy Thomas could save the day.
>>> Thomas and Kaniel Dicken’s second 10-day contract has expired. The Cavs either have to sign them for the rest of the year or let them walk. God help them, they better not do the latter. There are still two roster spots open so they can keep them. But the problem is, the Cavs may want to bring in a big guy now that the Z and Ben are hurt. If this is the case, sorry Kaniel, you’re gone. Danny Ferry, please keep Billy Thomas if you know what’s good for you and this team. Long live Billy Thomas.
>>> There’s a huge MAC match-up tonight between my Ohio Bobcats and Miami (who just barely beat a crappy Buffalo team to advance). This game is huge. It puts rivals against rivals and blogger against blogger. Graig, what are we wagering on this? This game is so big, it might be worthy of a real-time, live, up-to-date, state-of-the-art running post. I hope Chuck’s new heart doesn’t break again with this loss. GO BOBCATS.
