I think a good name for a water park would be Littoral Stimulation. And that's all I've got today. Glad I could help.
I don't follow golf so I didn't even know Tiger and Sergio had a beef with each other. However, fried chickengate is yet another reason I'm not a fan of most trash-talking in sports. I have a thick skin and a weird sense of humor thus I'm not offended by jokes that push the bounds. The fact of the matter is that most people who talk trash are terrible at it. Ali is and will always be the master. ESPN Classic has aired "The Ali Rap" multiple times and it is a masters thesis of trash talk. Most of the time trash talk consists of lame jokes or some variation of "Oh yeah, well you suck!" It's just boring.
JMC, for what it's worth, I had the opportunity to read your comments on David Cook's five questions before they disappeared into the ethereal abyss. That was quite a contribution on your part, nice job.
9er, did you do one of those multiday trips in the Grand Canyon? I'm an old river-rat and the Colorado is near the top of my bucket list. I tried to book a trip a few years ago, but this is back when run permits were severely limited and the waiting list was long. Never could quite make it work. I understand the process has been facilitated over the last few years, so time to give it another shot.

Dude, are ewe suggesting someone here is on the lamb?
I didn't get a chance to see any of the Billboard Awards last night. I heard reports of a dumpster fire downtown and opted to watch that instead. Did they play that song "Saban Went Down To Georgia"? During the acceptance speeches did any of the stars thank the guy that invented Pro Tools? Without Pro Tools, Auto Tune, and the other automated gimmickry available in today's studios most of these "artist" are as pleasant sounding as a fork being scraped across a chalkboard.
Fire on the mountain run boys run, Saban's in the house of the rising sun.
Jay, you ask a good question pertaining to the illegality of sports gambling. You can buy a lottery ticket, invest in a risky start-up, and buy insurance. However, if you lay down a little money on the Steelers to cover at home you have likely committed a crime. This would be a good question to run by Drew Johnson. I don't agree with everything Drew writes, but he is spot-on with his views of the absurdity of consensual crimes in a supposedly free society.

Once you peek behind the curtain and realize how the game is really played, you can never be fully comfortable voting for a viable candidate in American politics again. Never forget what James Carville said: "Elections are about f^^^ing your enemies. Winning is about f^^^ing your friends."
So, we send in the name of any athlete and Jay will use it as a verb in a sentence? Interesting. For your consideration, I submit former Major League Baseball player Rusty Kuntz.
Thanks for taking my call, I'll hang-up and listen.
Country Music Rushmore: Hank Sr., Johnny, Possum, and Willie. I would also honor the mad scientist of country music with a statue of Roger Miller mooning the Rushmore carvings. Roger marched to a beat none of the rest of us will ever hear.
With all the talk of country music stars and JMC's mention of the weather in Texas, I was reminded of something Jimmy Dean said: "Texas is the only place in the world where you can be up to your ass in mud and have dust blow in your eyes."
I see there is some hand-wringing going on concerning the amount of press coverage received by Jason Collins and his announcement. Collins is making more of a name for himself with a personal admission than his play on-the-court. In sports, your numbers and performance and wins and losses always determine the amount of press coverage one receives right? I would like to offer up just a few questions. Did Tim Tebow receive more press coverage last year sitting on the bench for the Jets than Matt Ryan? Does Brad Keselowski get as many commercial offers as Danica Patrick? Was Anna Kournikova the best female tennis player of her time? Had any of you heard of Kris Humphries before he married a Kardashian? Last week, did a linebacker from Notre Dame taken in the second round garner more attention than two linebackers from Georgia taken in the first round?
I agree that in the context of the games we should let merit rule, but if you are outraged that media coverage can become skewed towards certain athletes due entirely to non-sports issues...Where have you been? That ship sailed a long time ago.

Connie's house must look like a NFL franchise "war room" on draft day. He has his big board of heathens. Two stacks of bible verses, those that he quotes frequently and another stack off in a far corner that he ignores completely. Now he is punching us all in and out on some kind of time clock in a system that only makes sense to him. He's a strange little bugger ain't he?
He's makin' a list, the bible he'll leaven, gonna find out who's gettin' to heaven...
