It’s About That Time Again…

linehan13flashThe NFL Season is just around the corner and that means another season of epic failure for my St. Louis Rams. Last year it took an injury to a back up guard to prompt this post, this year it’s the fact that the 2006 draft has officially been labeled one of the worst in NFL history. The Scott Linehan may have done Matt Millen-esque harm to the Rams franchise. The guy is an idiot.

When Linehan was hired back in 2006, I thought he couldn’t be any worse than the Mad Scientist, Mike Martz. While he was an idiot, too…Linehan made him look like Einstein.

A Non-Sports Post…

…but arguably more important.

I just went out and got engaged.  This is the same girlfriend who was featured in the Kiss Cam Story.  Now I have to set a date quickly before she sobers up.

My Take On Rick Pitino

pitinoThis is my second semi-basketball related post in a row, which has to be a record.

Anyway, I had planned on letting this slide but then Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino had to go off on a rant against the media.

If you don’t know the story by now, you can read about it and watch his rant here.  Basically, the way I understand it is that sometime in 2003, Pitino had an extra-marital affair with a woman named Karen Sypher at a restaurant in Louisville.  That’s pretty much where the facts end and the speculation begins.  From there, Sypher married Louisville equipment manager, Tim Sypher.  She was then accused of trying to extort millions from Pitino.  In turn, she accused Pitino of raping her.  Pitino admitted to the sexual contact and insists that it was consensual.

And from here, it gets even more weird.

Shaq’s New Show

LAKERS MEDIA DAYFor the last two Tuesdays I’ve found myself watching Shaq Vs., the new show on ABC.  In it, Shaquille O’Neal takes on top athletes from around the country in their respective sport.  The results are predictably hilarious.  In the first episode Shaq took on Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in a 7 on 7, two-hand touch football game.  Roethlisberger’s team won, but the highlight of the night came when Shaq left the sideline to pick off Big Ben’s pass and rumble down the field for a score (which did not count.)

In last night’s episode, Shaq took on the best sand volleyball team in the world, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.  Again, he lost, but he put forth a respectable effort.

I’ve stated my general disdain for basketball on numerous occasions.  I just really don’t like the game.  I must say, though, that I love Shaquille O’Neal.  I wish all athletes were like him.

Big 12 North Preview

Yesterday I started our brief college football previews with the Big 12 South.  Today, we’ll preview the much weaker North. The Missouri Tigers have won the last two North Titles only be trounced by Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game.  So who gets to be the sacrificial lamb this year?

I think it’s going to be the Kansas Jayhawks.  Of the three real contenders in the North, only Kansas returns their starting QB.  Todd Reesing set all kinds of school records last year while leading the way to 7-5 record and an Insight Bowl victory over Minnesota.  As good as Reesing is, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe is better.  Briscoe caught 92 balls for 1,407 and 15 touchdowns.  He may be the second best receiver in the Big 12, behind OSU’s Dez Bryant.  The running game is okay with senior RB Jake Sharp returning after two straight 800 yard campaigns.  The passing game will obviously be the feature, however.
