So Browns coach Romeo Crennel said he may decide his starting quarterback with a coin toss. That’s good coach strategy. This may only be for the first exhibition game against Kansas City on Friday but still. Is this possibly the best way to pick the starter for the most important position on the field?
It isn’t like this is fantasy football and you need a quarterback so you do a coin flip to pick either Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. It’s Charlie Frye and Derek Anderson. It’s not even like you are picking between an established veteran and a promising rookie. It’s a white guy from Akron who wishes he was black who wore his football jersey to parties in college and a tall lanky from the Pacific northwest who’s only remotely interesting background story for announcers to talk about last season was how his feet were so big as a kid he had to get his shoes from the Portland TrailBlazers. Really? One can’t step up and play better than the other? This makes me real confident heading into the season.
Despite my glass half empty optimism, I’m pumped to be going to four Browns games this season. I already had three tickets with three other buddies for the Baltimore, Seattle and San Francisco games but last night the girlfriend gave me tickets to the home opener against Pittsburgh. Now, if only the Browns would give me a reason to be excited other than drinking and tailgating at 8 a.m. on Sundays this fall.
A few random thoughts…
My last post my be coming very soon. I am about to become a millionaire. All that needs to happen is Bonds to hit No. 756 in the next week while at home, a morning DJ from Cleveland (Rover, of Rover’s Morning Glory) to catch the ball, then my name to be pulled from the sure to be thousands of names who entered his $1,000,000 give-a-way. So let’s all hope this happens so the JBeanie Era comes to an end.
And speaking of Bonds, would he please hit the home run. I’m sick of the Giants being on TV. It’s even worse than the Live Look-in’s that I thought would happen. I hate it, but yet I can’t help but watch it.
Congratulations to Pacman Jones on his new wrestling contract. This is what he had to say about it, “I am a big fan of wrestling, so I wanted to give it a try,” Jones said. “I respect wrestling and I’m not coming in like it’s just a show. I want to prove that I am the greatest team-sport athlete.”
Hmm, Pacman, wrestling is a show and it’s not really a team sport. I’m sure this the best way to get back in Roger Goodell’s good graces. You are full of smart decisions. No better way to clean up your public image than going to a sport with anything but a clean public image.
What can his wrestling name be? Is “Rain Man” to easy?
