@FonzieD15 & Co.
--Great read by the Omaha World Herald's Jon Nyatawa on Nebraska's best player this year and last. A bit long, but worth the time, as PYB-favorite Alfonzo Dennard emerges from Prince Amukamara's artificially large shadow.
--Speaking of Amukamara, his NFL career has soured even earlier than PYB expected as he's out with a serious injury.
--We are all lucky enough to read, for the third time before the season's first game, how much the Husker football team loves each other this year. PYB couldn't care less how many jokes they shared over ribs this summer. Win some games that matter and we'll be happy.
--Final tidbit on Nebraska football: Two linemen hurt. The Cotton Regime continues. PYB wistfully remembers when NU's linemen used to block and were NEVER injured. Now, it's a constant litany if bumps and bruises keeping Barney's six-foot-seven, 320-pound behomoths sidelined day after day. Suck it up.
--Tiger Woods is JUST 13 SHOTS back entering the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Sunday. If anyone can come back from that far down, it's Tiger Woods! PYB can't imagine a better storyline than 54-hole leader Adam Scott winning in Woods' return to the PGA Tour using Woods recently-fired caddie Steve Williams. That would be dope. The ultimate "fuck you" to ETW...especially watching the highlights of Scott and Williams having fun on the course Saturday.
Off to the links. Some pussy commented on our last post asking if we like ANYTHING? The answer: in today's sports world...not really. All contrived for money, unearned glory and television ratings. We prefer the days of unrestrained fighting, heavy drug and alcohol, real competition and earning championships. For now, we'll just bitch about how it used to be....
