This video speaks for itself. Ted Turner is the man, and Craig Sager is a great mouthpiece.
P.S. Sorry about the domain being down the last few days. We’re starting to host the blog on a server, and also joining a blog network, so things will look much better soon!
Sarah Palin dropped the puck at a Philadelphia Flyers’ NHL hockey game and was horrifically booed by the Philly fans. These are the same group of people who booed Santa Claus and cheered Michael Irvin getting carted off the field on a stretcher. I can think of a more cheerful crowd the Republican campaign could have lined her up to drop the puck in front of. Not the smartest p.r. move for the repubs.
Some wealther Texan will ultimately pay $500,000 for the end zone.
“It includes VIP treatment for the last regular season Cowboys game in Texas Stadium. Your crew gets pre-game photos in your zone with Jerry Jones, a luxury suite for the game, and a once-in-a-lifetime post-game tailgate party on your soon-to be new backyard (with the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, no less). There’s also autographed memorabilia from Cowboy legends, and a VIP package to attend the opening of the new stadium in 2009. Better yet, the Jerry Jones family and the Cowboys organization will generously donate the entire purchase price to The Salvation Army.”
They’re just trying to stay out of trouble.
Adam Jones will not be suspended by the Cowboys for violating any code of conduct, and will play in the Cowboys game on Sunday. According to the ‘Boys, he was “horsing around” with his bodyguard, and there was no real altercation. Maybe the league will step in and suspend him. Either way, he’s a ticking time bomb and will relapse again by next year. The Sporting Blog
The SEC is so pressure-filled that Auburn fired its Offensive Coordinator after an anemic offense didn’t score in the 2nd half in the loss at Vandy. I think Coach Tommy Tuberville is finding a scapegoat, but the SEC definitely pays for keeps. I think the next fire in the SEC will be Steve Spurrier’s in the offseason. ESPN
A Tommy Lasorda Biopic is in the works to be produced by Miramax. Did anyone see “Righteous Kill” Pacino and DeNiro’s first movie since “Heat?” I didn’t think so. I’m much more intrigued by James Gandalfini playing Sonny Vacario in an HBO film based on Sonny’s life. Sports by Brooks
Dan Snyder is fired up and very awkward in expressing his true feelings. This was his reaction after the Cowboys victory. This is his celebration after the Eagles’ win. Thanks to Mr. Irrelevant.
ESPN Game Day was in Nashville, TN for the first time, ever. Lee Corso unceremoniasly picked the Auburn Tigers to beat the Vanderbilt Commodores. Yee have little faith. To quote Michael Bolton, this no “talent ass-clown” faked-out the Vandy faithful by whipping out a Commodore mascot helmet, and then throwing on an Auburn jersey. That’s OKAY, Corso is used to playing the bad guy when he heads to Game Day. But when he threw on the Tennessee jersey after the Auburn helmet, he showed the true Kenny Chesney sycophant that he is.
Kenny Chesney did not belong on Game Day in Nashvegas. The Gameday crew came to celebrate the Commodores, not the Volunteers who Chesney roots for. I can’t stand it when Monday Night Football has irrevelent pop culture guests in the commentator booth, pluggng their next tour or movie, and this was no different. They could have invited Vince Gill or any of the hundreds of country music fans who support the Dores.
