For Thanksgiving dinner -- Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. I'd buy a chicken but the four of these guys could juice it up to a 20 pound turkey in no time.
To borrow the brick by brick analogy of UTK for UTC from 1-11 to now. The first brick was beating anyone with a pulse - check, second brick was playing competitively with the big three in the SoCon (Wofford, Appy, GaSo)- check, beating the big three -- check with an asterisk (bad call in the Waffle House capital of America), win a conference championship -- shared check. The next brick is a playoff win and then anything can happen. Right now Russ' mailbox looks a lot better than Butch's.
When our sons were 7 and 4 we dressed the older one up as a baseball player. We put the younger one in a white shirt and tie and he went as his agent. He kept all his candy plus got 15% of his brothers'.
Can you dust off the SEC draft that you did in the middle of last season and do one before the season starts? Same rules, worst record first, alternate between east and west, no team can lose more than three players.
Your comments about the tragedy in Boston show why you write and we can only read. Well written, well thought out. Thank you for putting so many of our thoughts into words.
Simple rule --
Draft kids who have older brothers - they've seen the game, parents know the routine. If out of those go with the GLM plan.
Great one team list. Two shows that were / are entertaining if you enjoy sci-fi, Eureka and Warehouse 13. These are both acquired taste type shows.
5@10er I must respectfully disagree with Bray sneaking into the first round. Of the last 10 teams drafting none of them need a QB with the exception of Vikings depending on what you think of Ponder. Teams that finish this high, finish there for a reason, good QB play. A team drafting earlier will not spend a high 1st round pick on Bray, they would just wait until the second round to pick him. He MIGHT sneak into the early second round but not the first. Renfree on the other hand has the opposite problem - million dollar head, five cent arm. Barkley is a enigma, I like that he came back but was dissappointing, Smith, Glennon, and Manuel can be hit or miss. I think Bray falls into the bottom of this group.
Jay -- put me down for Tony Stewart and Danica 15th. Think the crowd will be waving singles in the air when Danica does the parade lap on "the pole"? Rushmore of owners Buss, Steinbrenner, the Rooney family, Lamar Hunt. Reinsdorf gets a mention in the visitor's center along with a few others.
Never noticed the ears -- sorry.
