Really can't expect anyone  to be above the deflate gate carnival can we??  The only ppl that have told the facts are tom brady and Bill belicheck.  Why wouldn't I believe them over the refs that touch the balls just like a basketball ref squeezing and the office of Goodell 

 
No, you're right...and the Pats fans have been saying this all along

Geez Rude, isn’t this ball talk over the top at this point?
Are we looking at another 10 days of this?

I read an article by Mark Bradley today that he titled "Is everybody going to jump for joy" which is a reference to our new coach from the 1968 hit "The Mighty Quinn" by Manfred Mann (written by Bob Dylan).
 
It begins "Come all without. Come all within. You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn." You all should push that as a new nickname for the coach. Maybe at kickoff of home games the person who plays the music can get everybody, including the coach, pumped up by playing a few bars of the song.
 
Oh, and on the subject of music, Rude was asking listeners if anybody knew a good song about cheating in reference to the Patriots and the air pressure in footballs. How about "The Cheater" by Bob Kuban and the In-Men from 1966 which Wikepedia says reached #12 on the Billboard charts so it was a fairly big hit.
 
It begins "Look out for the cheater. Make way for the fool hearted clown."
 
Best wishes,
 
John the musicologist
 
Thanks John...I was a Manfred Mann fan, along with Manfred Mann's Earth Band. It's funny, I always make these kind of musical suggestions to the folks I work with and they look at me like I'm from another planet. Manfred Mann would probably end up in the dumpster fire of ideas I've suggested too...you know the OLD saying "too old."

Looks like I won't be jumping for joy anything soon

Once again I watched the Hawks and saw hundreds, if not thousands of empty seats, especially in the lower levels and yet we hear how it is a sellout.  Yet, if I call and ask about buying a lower level seat...sorry all sold.  Once again corporations or the stub hubs of the world have them and don't use them or can't get their exorbitant asking price for them.  
 
How times have changed.  I was a season ticket holder in 1979-80 and 80-81.  I had two tickets on the floor 2nd row at the end line and they cost.....drum roll....... $7.44 per ticket per game - less than $600 for the season for the pair.

This is all much ado about nothing Rude.
Leave it to the media to make mountains out of mole hills.
We give pitchers a wink and a nod when they doctor baseballs and for some reason this is a big deal.
Or when groundskeepers leave grass too long on an infield or water down the dirt to slow down a bunt.
Please!!!!
By the way, I haven’t heard one word about the game itself.
Not one conversation about match-ups or strategy.
Is this really worthy of non stop chatter?
 
Beginning Monday, we talk about the game and hopefully, the aftermath of "DeflateGate."

Is it time to jump for joy?

  • Charles Fisher Is he really an upgrade or just a beneficiary of having the talent and assisting Pete Carroll? How is Gus Bradley doing?
  • Fred Pittman Chris I hope they know what their doing up the road it will be he'll to pay
  • Jimmy Schofield What's the point of bringing in a new coach w/ the same crap talent? It's like asking a new chef to make chicken salad of chicken shit.
  • Charles Fisher The Falcons talking point is to throw Smith and Nolan under the bus of wanting to build the defense from inside out. Yet, the coaches weren't the ones scouting and selecting the personnel to fit into the scheme. I still think the failure resides with the GM and Personnel dept. at the same token Nolan or Smith would have been just as successful if they were DC for Seattle the past 2 years.
  • Charles Fisher Arthur Blank seems to have difficulty firing GMs. Rich McKay should have been fired after the Bobby Petrino fiasco. He was promoted instead. TD is mild mannered and laid back. He is not going to support a tough & boisterous personality like Rex Ryan who will now over & emasculate him. So his coaching hire will always leans towards someone that mirrors his personality.

The Greatest Women's Ski Racer in History

Jan 24, 2015 -- 12:26pm

Now that the all-time World Cup victories record solely belongs to Lindsey Vonn, what's next to accomplish for arguably the greatest female ski racer in history?

Vonn told USA Today Sports that despite reaching the milestone of 63 World Cup wins, she will not slow down, but she can now take to steep and icy race courses in a more relaxed manner. "I don't think I'll approach races differently, but this just makes it mentally easier when I stand in the starting gate ... to have less pressure … because I've already accomplished something that I never thought I could accomplish," Vonn said.

"Now, it's just like icing on the cake – whatever I do from here on out is a bonus," "I'm going to try and win a lot more races; I think it's going to be a little bit easier mentally."
