And her long legs were tan and brown
You better keep your eyes on that road boy
You better slow this vehicle down.”—Sammy Johns
Right off the Top: I miss the NFL Draft…I miss the first three rounds being on Saturday…I miss awesome sauce it was before it went to the red carpet and prime time.
This past week myself and MVS staffers Tim Peterson & Duane Barker made controversial Facebook posts.
Barker last weekend posted a pool pic from the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas with an extremely European looking guy in speedos in the background.
Peterson made this comment about Aaron Hernandez’s suicide. “So it looks like Aaron Hernandez is out for the year.”
Which inspired this response: “Not nice Tim, Not funny at all!! Have you stooped and think how his family feels. It’s not about him!! So sad!!!”
Torosian made his annual slam about soccer players being either bad actors or wimps. Which inspired this: “I’m a big Joe Torosian fan but sometimes he can be wrong.” … “Sounds like you’re the one whining and crying. Did someone knock you off the sofa???LOL!!!” … & “#you’readummy.”
Whose post was most offensive?
There needs to be a no-foul-out rule in basketball.
The NFL Draft needs to get away from Prime Time.
MLB needs to get rid of replay.
Walnut needs to get out of the Hacienda League.
Soccer needs line changes like the NHL.
Number One MLB Team: Mets
Number Two MLB Team: Indians
Teams I have a soft-spot for: Brewers, Rockies, Twins, Mariners
Teams I’ll never care about: Phillies, Astros, Rays, Marlins, Royals, Cubs, Reds, Yankees.
Teams on indifferent about: Everyone else.
Team I despise: Braves.
Team I want to lose every game until its TV contract runs out: Dodgers.
Since the prep football season is starting to roll again, what would you rate as the biggest transfer of the off-season? Since December it feels like the coaches have dominated most of the discussion.
Midbits (same as ‘Tidbits’)
Midbits: Not a Dodgers fan but glad to see they brought up Cody Bellinger…Anxious to see what he can do…Well not see—since I can’t see the Dodgers—but hear…I’m anxious to hear and read about how Bellinger does.
Midbits: I was 27 once…At 27 we’re capable of making stupid decisions. Either as a single man, a married man with a kid or as one of MLB’s top pitchers with three World Series titles…Madison Bumgarner has been so good it’s been easy to forget he’s 27…But good for him, he’s owned the mistake and will go on from there.
Midbits: Do people like Adrian Peterson?
Midbits: Oh, I’ve always been an Eric Thames fan.
Midbits: I never thought I would admit to being completely bored with the NFL Draft…But I am…Maybe it’s because the Rams are going to pick 37th…I must admit, I do feel good that they’ll avoid taking a bust left tackle with the second overall choice.
The Dude abides…
