I hope that everyone within the sound of my voice will grab this day and hump it like the damn dirty couch cushion it is!
– ESPN’s Chad Ford continues to tweak his mock draft for Thursday’s NBA Draft. At this point, I have no clue why it is still changing. Don’t NBA teams basically know the players available? The answer is ‘yes’, of course. The real issue is that Chad Ford has no clue about the talent available .his latest edition has Knight to the Jazz at 3, Kanter to the Cavs at 4, and DeAndre Liggins 56th to the Lakers. I would LOVE to have a Lakers Liggins jersey!
– Enes Kanter has requested to the NBA that when his name is announced Thursday, he would prefer them announce him as “Enes Kanter from Istanbul, Turkey and the University of Kentucky”, according to KSR. I would wear a Enes jersey too, but not if it is a Cavs one.
– ESPN ranked Danny Trevathan the 4th best linebacker in the SEC yesterday. They said, “Talk about being the hardest working man on the field. Trevathan led the SEC with 144 tackles a year ago and was third with 16 of them behind the line of scrimmage. He’s Kentucky’s most trusted defender and was the first Kentucky linebacker to ever earn any sort of All-America first-team honors.“ if Danny is #4, I don’t want any part of 1,2, or 3.
– The MLB-TGR Review… Tampa suffered a loss to the Brewers last night, 5-1. The Braves won their third straight with a 5-1 win over the Blue jays. The Reds and Yankees were rained out. A few TGR members are attending the early game today in Cincy. Due to the rainout yesterday, the yanks and Reds will play a day/night double-header. Here is my question, will your ticket to the first game get you into the 2nd game? Or will they clear the stadium and allow those with tickets from yesterday enter? I bet one of the attendees that your ticket to the 1st gets you into the 2nd too. I had an exact same situation happen to me once at Turner Field in Atlanta. The game the night before I was scheduled to go to got rained out against the Mets, so the next day our tickets got us into both games. We actually never left. You have to love beer sales for an entire game and until the 7th of the next one. I have a 12-pack on the line if I am right about today’s Cincy game. Let me know if you know the rules there.
Fertig will be clueing you in on the Cats chances to win the NCAA title this year, according to USA Today. Fitz will have his Reds mid-week ramblings tomorrow. You won’t believe how high they have the L-Ville Cards on the list of odds. I will be slumping in my cubicle until 4 o’clock. At that point, I will quickly rush to the nearest telephone booth to change into my Lycra suit. C! A! T! S!
