If Jay Gruden gets the Jacksonville HC position, I have a feeling Andy Villanueva is going to become a serious Jaguars fan.
Sorry, no matter what happened in Houston today when someone says; “T.J.” … I say Rubley.
Its 3:55 Pacific Time so let me say this now: “Oh, I have always been a Detroit Lions fan.”
I hope Ellis McCarthy has 30 tackles and records 10 sacks in every game he plays for the Cal Golden Bears…And I hope he plays 15 years in the NFL and goes to the Hall of Fame…but I hope Cal gets its butt kicked by USC, UCLA, Washington State, Utah, and Stanford every year…
I’m just not a Golden Bear guy…
On the other side may Kevon Seymour get four national title rings while at USC…He’s going to want to get four because the NCAA will find some reason to ignore every other felony in Division I football but steal two of those titles from the Trojans for providing ice to players in the off season on days that it rains.
The Lakers looked slow in Portland the other night. When you start a point guard as old as Moses that will happen.
Are you ready to buy into the Clippers yet? People keep telling me I’ve got to believe and I keep telling them I can’t, I can’t. But you’ve got to believe Joe T….I tell you I can’t…I can’t believe. I’ve got a face full scars wishing for the Clippers to be good.
Arcadia’s Myles Carr to Stony Brook? That is awesome, very happy for the dude. I will buy into that.
Facebook question came to me this week.
FB: Do you get upset when coaches or players don’t tip you off about a move or transfer or something.
Joe T.: No.
FB: Do you consider coaches friends.
Joe T.: You have to be very careful who you call a friend. I don’t want to hurt any feelings, but were friends only in the sense that we interact about football. If one of them asked me to help them move, I’d say no. (I don’t ever help anyone move—ask Bad News & Peterson) In the last 14 years I’ve only had one “friend” type of interaction with a coach where we spent a lot of time together and we weren’t talking about his team, newspaper, or website. Make that two. Honestly, I’m not interested in being anyone’s friend. I’ve got friends. The coaches have friends and are not really interested in making new friends.
The conversation ended there.
I know that might sound a little cold, but as long as I have a camera and a website I’m always going to be looked at with suspicion. I don’t necessarily like it but it is what it is.
I enjoy writing about the competition, the growth, success, and maturation of the young people involved, I enjoy researching the history, but I have no interest in spending too much time around people who feel (and rightly so) they have to have always be on guard when I am there.
The Dude abides…
