Back, Back, Back, Back....
--USC? To quote a PYB favorite and hammer another sports cliche into the ground, You CANNOT be serious! Were Florida, Florida State, Miami, Oregon and Oklahoma too stocked at QB to consider? PYB says that a QB with a SWAC-type throwing motion and no past success at the D-I level may as well cross the Trojans off the list. Last time we checked, passing is pretty important in that offense and we don't see Cody Green turning into Carson Palmer overnight---other than the INTs for TDs, of course.
Speaking of INTs for TDs, maybe Green would be best suited for Baylor. Waco, after all, is the site of one of his four career starts and his near game-losing interception a couple years back. We're rooting for the guy, but be realistic. At least, in all likelihood, he got his pick of Nebraska skanks for a couple years before bolting Lincoln...
--Speaking of delusional former Cornhusker football players, Mr. Playground can't stay out of the Omaha World Herald columns. Do we need to comment yet, or should we wait until he quits? We're setting the over/under at August 1. Takers?
--Random thought on an awful, drawn out event last night. The Home Run Derby. More than three hours, topped off with an excruciatingly uncomfortable post-derby trophy presentation hosted by Pedro Gomez. If you thought his stalking of Barry Bonds was uncomfortable, hopefully for your sake you missed his performance last night.
Anyway, the derby kicks off the worst three-night run in sports each year. The next two nights are the MLB All-Star game in the worst MLB stadium (Chase Field in Phoenix...OK at least the most boring) followed by the contrived, worthless, overblown, and completely fake ESPYs the next night. Unless they present Queen James with the Choker of the Year hardware, this event should be eradicated. We'll stick to "House Hunters International" for now...it's easier watching dorks with too much money look for a badly decorated, middle-of-nowhere house in Nicaragua than these made-for-television-and-greed 'sporting events.'
--News flash: Usually when someone is charged with DUI, they have failed a field sobriety test.
--Lastly, we will bless you with some more EDGY blogging from the stiffs at huskguys.com. Hilarious stuff. Further proof that any fool with a dick can make a sports blog, but that it takes a real staff of old-school sports fans and talented writers like PYB has to make it something worth reading...
We're gone for now...have a great day...PYB
