What Are You Doing Today?



I’m not at work today. Figure it out on your own. But, I have a big weekend of couch, tv, and frozen vegetables in my future.

Len Shapiro on the Coal Miner’s sons …Thomas and Julius Jones…

ABC will not air the Ring of Honor Inductions


If you were hoping to catch Monday night's Ring of Honor ceremony at halftime of ABC's nationally broadcast Cowboys-Redskins game, you're out of luck.

The induction of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith will be pre-empted by a NFL telethon to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. The entire 12-minute halftime will be devoted to the fundraising effort, Monday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli confirmed on Thursday.

Not that Monday Night Football, whose audience extends far beyond Cowboys fans, would have shown the entire ceremony anyway. Rather ABC most likely would have offered an edited version before the start of the second half, Gaudelli said.

Redskins-Cowboys week isn’t what it used to be

Those were the days, on and off the field.

"We were so lucky to see this town become nonpartisan," Walker said. "No political differences, no racial differences. Everybody, 1,000 percent, hated Dallas. It was an overwhelming aura."

Last season, Gibbs and the Redskins suffered a pair of agonizing losses, 21-18 and 13-10.

But it goes beyond the Cowboys always winning. Once, when both teams were special, every game was big.

"There was a time when the team that won the game would usually win the division," Madden said. That time seems long ago and far away.


I start to wonder how much Good Old Days Syndrome is involved here. Every time these two teams play, we have to hear everyone suggest that it isn’t like it used to be. Doesn’t that have more to do with the Redskins being good and the Cowboys being good than it does with the young kids not understanding the rivalry? The Rivalry will continue the second the game becomes important again.

America’s Most Confusing College Football Team? TCU. So they win in Norman, Lose at SMU, and now beat Utah?….That, kids, is why we don’t gamble…

Happy Weekend.

Offtopic, but Eklund gets called out by one of the more respected sports bloggers, Eric Mcerlain of Off Wing Opinion (which if you're not reading on a daily basis, you're not a hockey fan).

I also opened the page at work, but then locked in for at least 5 minutes on that beautiful hairless scrotum. I could hear coworkers walking by but I didn't care.

Not too often you hear (read?) a guy say (write?) the words 'beautiful' and 'scrotum' in the same sentence.

Why doesn't bad radio broadcast Bob getting his penis cut off live today. That would make for some extremely high ratings

Bob,

Be sure to recycle your used frozen vegetables. Give them to Veggie Dan.

Too bad Sally came home so soon. I was looking forward to more HSO's from "Backdoor" Sturm.

Bob,

I was too busy checking out the size of that nutsack to even pay attention to anything else on the blog. My regards to your junk.

Best surgery ever! Maybe you had my husband's doctor: Dr. Gross (yes, there really is a urologist who does vasectomies named Dr. Gross).

Yea for Mrs. Sturm! Except for this weekend when you will likely drive her crazy with overly exaggerated claims of pain and loss of sense of self. Vasectomies rock!!!
