Is a sports "personality" a commentator or an athlete? Like you, I love Michelle Beadle. I was traveling the other day and stayed in a hotel with ESPN playing all day. The have so many young women in shirt skirts nowadays that I thought I was watching FOX news. How has Linda Cohn kept her job this long talking only through her nose? My favorite athlete is Ronda Rousey. I am buying her fight tonight.

I have traveled my entire career and have met many folks in the airports and on planes.   Here are my favorites:

 - Flew from LA to Las Vegas with Sugar Ray Leonard once.   He was a fantastic guy.  We laughed the entire way there.   He offered to buy my drinks for the entire flight.   We were in first class so I commented on what a fantastically generous person he was.   :) 

   - Met Danielle from American Pickers in the Chicago airport.   She was even more gracious and friendly than she appears on TV.

- My biggest narcissist  but totally entertaining award goes to Bruce Jenner.   Flew with him in 1st class from Dallas to LA.   We got drunk on the flight together and I had a great time.   He talked about himself for 3.5 hours.   This was in the late 90s I assume before he wanted to become a woman.   It may have even been before he became Mr. Kardashian. 

 My company bought 3 foursomes in the Reggie Jackson celebrity invitational in the 1999/2000 timeframe.   Every 4some got to play with a celebrity.   Willie Mays played in my foursome.  He was fantastic.  His eyes were bad so he didn't really play but he rode with us and entertained us.   Notable great guys from that experience was Ernie Banks, Joe Montana, Richard Karn, Rollie Fingers, Vince Coleman and Jim Palmer.    The three regular guys from my company were sitting at a table eating dinner after the tournament and Jim Palmer came up and was so humble that he asked us if he could join us at our table.    Of course, we said please do and for the next hour he kept us in stiches.   He was hilarious.   He told us stories about doing Monday Night Baseball with Al Michaels and Howard Cosell.   He can do a perfect impersonation of Howard Cosell and we almost fell on the floor laughing at his stories and his impersonation.    

   - Reggie Jackson was very friendly but he is tied with Bruce Jenner for narcissistic but entertaining

 - It was at this tournament that I met the biggest celebrity true prick I have ever met in my life and I was devastated.   Joe Morgan who I great up idolizing was the most arrogant person I have ever met.    After the golf all of us normal guys as well as many of the celebrities talked about what a prick he was.

After watching that Gasol Conley post I now know who was in the costumes as the right and left sharks at the Super Bowl.

I bet TSUN is so proud of the endorsement their new coach just got from such a fine upstanding, high character young man.

If the Lions can take receivers in the 1st round for 4 straight years, the Browns should surely be able to take QBs.

Hey, Birm, before you settle down for your long winter's rest, can you explain your comments last night about Weber being the last to don the Scarlet and Grey from Cass Tech? You seemed pretty perturbed last night.

Dontre got a couple of plays in the NCG. He was not fully healed but the coaches gave him some snaps to let him say he played.
Comment 04 Feb 2015

If he has this much drama with is recruitment, how will he be as a player and teammate?   And how "involved" will his Dad be with his playing time.   If I am a coach I don't think I would want him.

I would love to have another massive D tackle, but if we get everyone we anticipate I don't think we have room.   And it has been too quiet on his part.  The fact that we did not do an in home (yes I know he recently visited), tells me a lot.   I hope you are right, though.

Without a doubt. The best commercial during the SB, although Doritos had some good ones.

If this loss means we don't have to see Richard Sherman commercials and have to hear his mouth again, I am glad the Patriots won.

He thought his name would bring recruits flocking to him and he saw that was not the case. Now his tools are stalking and having his son send out misspelled messages done on notebook paper with crayons. But he will have to do it all as he has a staff full of NFL weenies that think recruiting is draft day. The only person who knows how to do it gets thrown out of recruit's houses. If this is what Urban and Dino have to deal with they will be good for a long time.

Why are you here to try to defend your team? We don't care about any of this and we are perfectly happy only one side is coming out. Anything bad, correct or otherwise for *ichigan makes us happy.
Comment 27 Jan 2015

I thought *ichigan had such high standards that they would not even talk to someone who needed football to get in?   

Comment 27 Jan 2015

I agree with Hoke being a good recruiter.  He had his problems, which were all reported, but the one thing everyone agreed on was that he could really recruit.   This year's class will be a problem but how many freshmen would you expect to start in a year?    He should have some talent for this year but the next couple of years he will be really thin.    It is good he has Peppers who can play every position on the field but long snapper.  :).
