  • SPORTS MOMENT: When the sousaphone player who dotted the "i" at the beginning of the 2009 USC game looked down, saw the camera man in his way, and did his sousaphone-twirling bow anyway, smacking the crap out of that camera. That dumbass camera man should have known better than get in the way of a man dotting the "i"! http://youtu.be/qwGxDBaNSik

Of course he's serious.  It's a matter of consistency.  He can't say that college football players deserve a slice of the wealth they help generate and then turn around and say that Little Leaguers do not.

No pre-sale tickets this year? I'm surprised! It has been packed before even when it was pre-sale only.  So now if anyone can roll up and "pay to play" (even people who have no idea about 11W), it could get out of control.

Get there early, I guess...

Oden fell victim to the Curse of Marion.  (Marion County, IN)

I am totally that guy in the Onion article.  Cannot think of many television shows that I would watch instead of a rebroadcast of the 2006 edition of The Game - a new Game of Thrones or Walking Dead episode, that's about it.

Kansas and UConn are my favorite expansion targets.  I believe they are AAU members, so they are academically eligible.  And they would solidify the B1G as the dominant basketball conference forever and ever.  Amen.

Just bought a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel two days ago for the first time. SMOOTH!

Loved this one, Johnny:

...the sheer ridiculousness of the University of North Carolina, which I'm not positive is actually a real college anymore and may in fact just be a front for a really misguided cigarette company. 

Nice work.

In Columbus, we are lucky to have choices for our cable provider (unless you live in an apartment complex like DJ). I was surprised to learn that in many cities, there is only one cable option.

DJ, droppin' some serious wisdom on us today!

The Craig James comment was priceless.

And I couldn't agree more with this one:

That's why I'll never attend a high school reunion: I already keep in touch with everybody I care about.

Nice job!

I'm sure you could be of great help to the federal investigation, MMAN. I suggest you go post about your extensive knowledge of the Gibbons situation on the appropriate Justice Department website (and not here).

 I don't carry any of the responsibility Jim Delany has beared

This doesn't sound right to me, but I'm not sure what is right.

"...the responsibility Jim Delany has borne..." ???

If #9 does not have a legitimate claim to be national champion, but #5 may, then why not favor a 6 team playoff instead of 8? I saw this suggestion a lot back when the CFB playoff was first suggested.

For example, you could have #3 vs. #6 in the Orange Bowl and #4 vs. #5 in the Fiesta Bowl. Then a week later you would have #1 vs. Fiesta winner in the Rose Bowl and #2 vs. Orange winner in the Sugar Bowl.  Finally, you would have the Rose winner vs. Sugar winner in the National Championship.

This system preserves the BCS bowl system while also giving the fans the playoff they've been clamoring for.  And let's face it, if you are #7 or lower after the regular season, you don't have much claim on a national championship anyway.
