So, I’m back in school. Class starts Monday and it’s about “beauty” defined through the ages. Is it wrong that I plan to write an essay about the beauty of a well-timed, well-placed centerfield catch? We’ll see if the prof goes for it.
What a moron. Royals Outfielder preceding the name Jeff Francouer is very appropriate, though. I think the inventions of the breaking ball and the off speed pitch were bigger reasons for his offensive woes, but we shall see, Jeff, we shall see…
Leah, I think he has been led astray by bad management. He’s such a nice guy when you meet him. I just think someone is in his ear telling him how great he is and he isn’t bright enough to understand that he isn’t any more.
I took my three boys to Turner Field for the tour today. It was great to be back in the stadium. Better than great, really. The tour typically includes a peak into the clubhouse. But not today as the rookie development week was still going on and they were in the clubhouse.
Also, as we we leaving, I saw fans filing into a door next to the ticket windows that I’d not really noticed before. I stopped one of the guys who told me it was a season ticket holder event where they got to meet and greet with the rookies.
At least we are done with the Jets. I found it hilarious yesterday all the people who were choosing to root for the Jets because of Roethlisburger’s (SP?) off the field transactions. Not that I condone it at all. He’s a piece of garbage. But have they checked out who plays for the Jets recently? Just their receiving corps.
What a gutless bum Jay Cutler is. Dimino was saying that he better throw himself down the stairs this morning to ensure that he is hurt enough to justify opting out of the NFC championship game. Something tells me that Matt Ryan is out there unless he is on a stretcher.
couldn’t agree more Curt. To be frank, that COULD have been the biggest game of his career. There is no guarantee that he will get back there. Look at Marino, he made a super bowl his first year and lost. His attitude (in retrospect) was: no big deal, i’ve got a whole career ahead of me I’ll get another chance. He never had another chance. You have to put it all out on the line.
Also, as for the Jets, I wanted them to win, to be honest. All we will see for the next two weeks will be each team trading compliments and selling themselves short. At least, Bart Scott or Rex Ryan would have given us a sound byte.
