The Kelly Washington mention reminded me of his protege, Da'Rick. Is there any hope for a Da'Rick redemption?
Probably not the best ever QB, but old George Blanda has a special place in my hall of fame. (I'm assuming the lingerie bowl QB's aren't eligible for this list.)
Spud's right that Toy Story 2 is worthy. If we include animated. And Shrek 2 was solid.
So is "co'colas" a code word for Bud Lite at your house? Step up, my man. Be bold. Live a little. Try a New Belgium product with some hops in it. Or any local brew from the Terminal. As Richie Havens sang, "Freedom."
Don't know if you saw the video of the just-fired sports reporter. (What if he had to say Mouhammadou to Makanjuola in the same sentence?) But the dude looked really shaky, not ready for prime time. I'd guess it's not the f-bomb that got him canned, he's just not big show material. Maybe you could get him on the 105.1 gig. Just give him a heads up on how to pronounce "Huesman."
Weeds' riffing on the best basketball player from Canada is good stuff. I agree that Cats fans should not count this chicken before it hatches, but if I were Self or Williams, I'd be sweating. I hate conducting business or having any important conversation on the phone. Body language says so much.
I'd argue that Back to School was a worthy sequel to Caddyshack for Rodney. "Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until we pass out. And then bring us one every ten minutes."
And Clipper Eric Bledsoe is money when it counts.
Evidently the AU grade fixing scandal is over. The report absolves all concerned. They concluded the course work at Auburn is so easy there'd be no need to cheat.
In the stars that supposedly can't miss at the next level category are the young athletes who played in the two showcase games this weekend, the Nike Hoop Summit and the Derby festival.
The stars we'll be talking about next year, first round NBA the following year, were in the Nike event, including UK's most elite freshmen-to-be.
The second-tier future freshmen were in the Derby game. The good news for UT is that their five-star recruit Hubbs hit three of three threes and outscored UK's seventh and eighth best recruits, who were also in that game. The bad news for The Vols is that next year The Cats bring in six players rated better than Hubbs.
The top performer in the game was France's big Mouhammadou Jaiteh, who will likely jump from the French D-league straight to the NBA. But if Tennessee signs him, we could hear this alliterative, tounge-twisting radio call from Bert next year: "Mouhammadou to Makanjuola--Money!"
They're excited on The Plains. If attendance at their spring scrimmages is an early indicator, the top teams in this year's SEC football season will be Auburn, Tennessee, and Kentucky. But seriously…
With new coaches, last year's SEC gridiron doormats hope for blue skies ahead. Kentucky won only two games, while Tennessee won seven. And Kentucky got blown out worse and more often than the Knoxville crew did.
So even with Bray, Cordarrelle and Hunter gone, one assumes The Vols start the rebuild at a bit higher level. But if we assume modest improvement at both schools, the two could have identical records when they meet on November 30, with the outcome determining which one ends up with a satisfying season.
The 2013 football schedules of UT and UK are very similar. Both teams will lose to top ten teams Alabama, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia; both will likely lose to top 25 powerhouse Vandy. The Vols will lose to Oregon and The Cats will lose to Louisville, both top ten teams.
UT gets Mizzou on the road and UK gets them at home. UT's Auburn and UK's Mississippi State are roughly equal. Both Tennessee and Kentucky should beat the three patsies on their schedules.
Two games into the season both will have played Bobby P's Hilltoppers, so we'll have a measuring stick to predict how the season-ending game will come out.
Thanksgiving weekend The Vols travel to Commonwealth Stadium to tackle the Air Raid Wildcats. In their last three games there, UT has lost, won in overtime, and won in quadruple overtime.
Want to put any entertainment on it?
Of all that may be said of Griner, I've not heard this commented on: She has an interesting voice for a girl. No disrespect meant, but I wonder what her testosterone levels are.
Can't miss but disappeared? Tim Couch.
I notice that Jay saw no reason to mention the Hawks in his NBA playoff predictions. Two questions:
1) How do Atlanta and Indiana match up?
2) Does anybody care?
Got a hunch the off season will see lots more shuffling of the Hawks cards. Don't know if the team will ever again have players we can sink our teeth into.
Dawg--The TN Whiskey bill passed, so I'll drink Chattanooga's finest, keep your John Walker. But your list is clever.
Reggie Bush, Sugar Bush, Beatin' around the Bush, and all those politicians.
And MT has a weiner with Mrs. Robinson's clan.
Stewie--you forgot "Big."
For the bag (or discuss now): We know "Action" and "Jackson" are linked at the hip, but is there anything that pairs with "Greeson"? Other than maybe Mrs. Greeson?
