The Tuesday Blog Without Swagger

I will never feel the same about Efren Herrera. I have no explanation as to why my sports brain failed me so badly yesterday. Today will be better. Please forgive me, sports gods…

Peter Kings gives his Super Bowl

Sherrington wants Hicks to extend Kenny Rogers

Question: Who'd have thought Kenny Rogers had another season like last year's in him?

Answer: Not me. Not the Rangers, either, and the difference is that it's not costing me anything.

Of course, it didn't have to come to this. Had Hicks acquiesced, he'd have probably gotten Rogers for another $3 million or so for next year.

And now? He's probably good for twice that, and it'll take a two-year deal to get him signed.

Even a fat contract is no guarantee. As you may know, Rogers is mad at the Rangers for pushing a story that he threatened to retire if he didn't get an extension.

A matter of semantics, probably. You imagine Rogers indicating his options include hanging it up and Hicks taking it as a threat.

Cowboys settle lawsuit, ban photographer

Under terms of the settlement, submitted to a federal district court in Dallas, the Cowboys agreed to pay Walter Smith $275,000 and to cease using the image in any promotion or advertising. Also included in the settlement is a clause that bars Walter Smith from returning to Texas Stadium to take photographs in the future. The team also tried, but failed, to bar him from Dallas Desperados games.

"For the Cowboys to add insult to injury by closing their gates on Walt tarnishes the very star Emmitt Smith was trying to defend," Mr. Davis says. "It's just plain vindictive. If anyone should be angry about what happened, it should be Walt Smith. He's the one whose property was taken and used without permission."

If you think I haven't already TIVOed tonight's "Queer Eye for the Quasi-Straight Red Sox," you're crazy.

I'm not going to dogpile Bob for his brain fart on Efren, but that was awfully funny, especially when usually Big Mac is the show a-hole. However, I still have faith in Sports Sturm...kinda like believing in Santa even after your parents tell you he's not real. I'll just keep chanting, "I believe in Sport's Sturm, I believe in Sport's Sturm".

Thanks for the Ty Walker link (gay?), but I'd much rather see what Meredith looks like.

What you experience yesterday was similiar to what everyone goes through.... A Bad Day At Work.

Unfortunately, When I screw up at work, only a few people are effected by it...

When you screw up, All of the P1's listening at the time of the screwup, All of the P1's listening to the Ticket Top Ten and all of the P1's listening to the Emergency Brake of the Week will listen to it.....

It's easy to criticize, but it's hard to go back out there and face your mistakes like a man, and you did that yesterday.... Bravo!

I sensed a distrubance in the Sports Sturm Force, which should come back to form in the near future....

Now, If only Gordo or Corba can screw up even worse than you did yesterday..

Also, when will you now signature phrase, " You're not talking to the guy in the next cubicle" appear on the Drop Page......

That has to be a Ticket and BaD Radio Classic from hear until the station is bought out.

Hoping more for Radio Gold today,

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
