Nessler and Blackledge are tops in my book right now. I like Gus for basketball, but he shouts and yells too much for me when he calls football.

What's changed since four or five years ago? Oklahoma can't going anywhere without Ok. State. Texas still has a "Tech problem," as well as a TCU and Baylor problem. As long as Texas stays as king of the Big 12, Oklahoma isn't going anywhere and neither is any one else.

This is a lesson to all men. If your girlfriend/wife is anywhere between good-looking and hot and you're just Joe Schmoe. No matter how much money you have or how nice a guy you are, she going to start fucking guys who are in her pay grade. On other words, if you're an average looking guy, hook up with an average looking women. For both of your sakes.

Even though I didn't go there, my favorite nickname was the Philo Electrics!!

I didn't get to go to the show either, but the set list could have been better. Limelight is my favorite Rush song, but when you realize Rush has quite a catalog of songs that when they decide to do one whole album, something has to go.

I've got to tell you, I'm not real crazy about this nickname. To me the offensive line has been a great surprise with great players who possess even greater character. They've really been something positive to watch as they've progressed from rag tag to be quite a stellar, dominate unit and in my opinion, "Slobs" is a little too "cool" and self-deprecating for me. I think it kind of diminishes their efforts plus it is not a real positive term that reflects who they are as athletes and people. I think we could do better.

I've never been in a major league clubhouse, but by all accounts, there are signs that say you will be banned for LIFE if you bet on baseball. Apparently there is a caveat that say's "unless you're a player on my favorite team and you happen to be very good at what you do. In that case, we'll make an exception."

What does the USGA do with Chambers Bay? They probably get at least one more championship for no other reason than the USGA doesn't want to proven wrong. For all of the belly aching done by the second tier players, the tournament itself was pretty exciting for the viewer like me plus I think Fox did a pretty good job for their first attempt at a golf major. The on screen enhancements helped the viewer rather than get in the way. All in all, I give them a B or B+.

Working on an engine...that ain't happening. My girls are a little on the prissy side ( blame their mother) meaning any kind of dirt is their mortal enemy

Comment 21 Jun 2015

Seattle, Don't know how much of a golfer you are, but are there any US Open type courses that would be suitable for the tournament in the area. I like my US Opens with lots of green grass and mature trees.

EDIT: Didn't see the post right above me, but we're saying pretty much the same thing.

I've got four daughters and they chipped in to buy me the American Sniper DVD plus a new set of router bits. Now that's true love.

Comment 21 Jun 2015

What's with the "non racist dads" comment. Can't we just have a day without some bullshit political or social message.

Comment 19 Jun 2015

I remember reading a story about Dwight Gooden when he pitched for the Yankees. He said he was so worried about pitching against the Indians lineup he couldn't sleep the night before he faced them.

Comment 18 Jun 2015

Ricky Fowler is my choice as well. 

Last time I was in Seattle, Pike's Place was a seedy, run down area filled with 25 cent adult video arcades and some of the homeliest prostitutes you ever laid your eyes on. I hear things have changed.

Comment 14 Jun 2015

I doubt the B1G goes after teams located in the plain states. The Atlantic and southeast states is where the growth is taking place. I remember reading article about an athletic administrator at UNC. When she heard the dollar amounts the B1G had to offer, her jaw hit the floor. The B1G will receive anywhere from $10 to $15 million dollars more per year per team than the ACC. That's up to $150 million dollars per team per decade. Hard to turn those dollars down.

Comment 13 Jun 2015

There's a reason Nebraska, Texas A&M and Missouri all left the Big 12. It's called Texas. Teams just don't leave behind 100 years of tradition over something small or trivial. We'll never know or be privy to the inner workings of the Big 12 conference, but there had to be tremendous negative pressure Texas put on the other schools and the Big 12 will never be the same. 

Comment 10 Jun 2015

I'm sorry. I don't understand how Tressel gets into the HOF basically on the first ballot. Tressel did some great things here, but he also lied to his superiors which resulted in extreme embarrassment and ridicule for Ohio State and then harsh punishment for the players and coaches left in his wake. Should Tressel be elected someday the HOF? Yes - Just not on the first ballot. There has to be some from of sanction for Jim Tressel from Ohio State.
