I’m glad that I missed it.  A friend sent me the youtube video which I just saw and that was plenty.  I almost wish I hadn’t seen that.  Don’t you think there had to be a weakness in his leg for that to happen.  From the video, it looked like he just came down wrong and it snapped.  That’s not at all normal.  Did they give any other explanation on TV?


As for the Gators, that stat that you gave Hoz – about them winning 28 and all by 10 pts or more – is incredible.  I had no idea.


Speaking of stats: anyone else read George Will’s column yesterday?  It was nothing but baseball stats and some were pretty amazing …

            Just finished getting sick to my stomach (almost) - no, not watching the Gators, but watching the poor Louisville kid have a compound fracture right on TV.  Why do they have to keep showing it so many times.  Hey, I know Mr. TV producer, why don't we show Theisman's break over and over and compare the two and argue about which was worse!!

             I just watched the segment on 60 minutes where Anderson Cooper scubaed in Africa in a river filled with crocs (known to eat humans) up to 17 feet long getting within about 5 feet of their snout facing right at them, at say 15 feet below the surface.  It was suspenseful as hell.  It was during the cool season and the leader/guide said there was no way in hell you would do this about two months hence since it would be much warmer and they would very likely attack you.  They do get very calm during cold weather, but I still wouldn't do it.  


            The african crocs do something where they can shut off half their circulatory system or something which allows them to stay under water for up to 3 hours at a time.  So holding your breath just ain't gonna work.

This morning I read the reactions of two players and it occurred to me we never factored the players' reaction to the entire situation.

Here we have two players saying it wasn't as bad as it looks. That one has personally locked the head of Mike Rice and rolled on the ground.

While we may still judge Mike Rice's behavior as inappropriate, maybe the mob mentality went too far in this case.

Your thoughts?

Show me a university that has been under more scrutiny, had more investigators and reporters on campus dying to uncover facts and proof, I'll show you a tall Perry (one doesn't exist). Yawn, another Auburn "story" based on hearsay and innuendo. Wake me up when something happens.



I guess Perry and Leo weren't too keen on the Brittney Griner thing.  Here's a short interview with her - if you don't look and just listen you would swear it was a guy

So that you can get your facts straight on Auburn topics….all the articles are at the below link.


The day that was: Auburn fires back at Selena Roberts report, ESPN's synthetic marijuana investigation


Deadfall - average shoot em up suspense flick which bombed last year.  Excellent cast - Eric Bana, Kris Kristofferson, Sissy Spacek, Treat Williams, and Olivia Wilde
Major redeeming quality - a very short love scene in which you get a quick glimpse of Ms. Wilde's diminutive (yet exquisite) breasts  - a first as far as I can remember.
We hear a lot about triple doubles in the NBA and it got me wondering if any player(s) had achieved a quadruple double or perhaps even a quintuple double.  The answer to the latter is no, but four players have actually had official quadruple doubles. *See note below.  The five categories are of course - points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocked shots.  Here they are:

Nate Thurmond

On October 18, 1974 Nate Thurmond of the Chicago Bulls had 22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists and 12 blocks vs the Atlanta Hawks in a OT game the Bulls won 120-115. (probably the most impressive as he had more than 10 in each category)


Alvin Robertson

On February 18, 1986 Alvin Robertson of the San Antonio Spurs had 20 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a 120-114 win over the Phoenix Suns. Robertson is the only player to accomplish a quadruple-double by having double figures in steals instead of blocked shots.


Hakeem Olajuwon

On March 29, 1990 just 26 days after the NBA ruled Olajuwon did not record a quadruple-double in a game he came back and accomplished the feat for real in a 120-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Hakeem had 18 points, 16 rebounds, 11 blocks and 10 assists in the game.


David Robinson

On February 17, 1994 David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs had 34 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 blocked shots in a 115-96 win over the Detroit Pistons to record the 4th official quadruple-double in NBA history.


*The NBA did not start counting blocked shots and steals until the 1973-74 season. So a few other players probably did have quadruple-doubles prior to that season. Jerry West claims he recorded a quadruple-double in game in which he scored 44 points, had 12 rebounds, 12 assists and 10 blocked shots. In a 1967 playoff game against the Boston Celtics it's believed that Wilt Chamberlain had 32 rebounds, 24 points, 13 assists and 12 blocked shots.

Date Teams Player Points Rebounds Assist Blocks 10/18/74 Chicago vs Atlanta Nate Thurmond 22 pts. 14 rebs. 13 asst. 12 blks. 02/18/86 San Antonio vs Phoenix Alvin Robertson 10 asst. 10 stls 03/03/90

I think, if a coach makes a gay slur to a gay player, as a rule, the gay player should be allowed to give that coach such a pinch!



Joe Besser

No need for that type of behavior from a coach. What if his players get upset in a game and toss the basketball at an opposing player and get a technical? How will the coach react then?

Rod Dowdy
selena roberts called one of the people mentioned in the auburn article to apologize for a misunderstanding and misquoting of him. this, of course, after she stated to other outlets that she stood by the story. quality reporting on her part.
Use only my first name on this one please - if you read it 
At least if Griner is drafted the NBA team won't have to spend money to build a separate locker room!!
That banks kid was wronged by some bitch and her fucked up mother.  I cant believe there isnt more outrage about this.  Wanetta Gibson is her name and she lied just like that bitch lied about mike tyson.  

Yes brittney griener could compete....have you seen my philly76ers....

Im so tired of These low self esteem puss boys like Perry that act like womens sports is beneath them...puss boys
