Cowboys Press Conference
The Open: “Poor Meg. She got a worse deal than that no armed baseball player, Bucky LeGrange.” Dan is a severe creature of habit. Part of that includes the way they sit in the studio and on remotes. That being said, since Bob is leaving, Donovan took Bob’s seat at the remote. This has upset Dan’s chi. Bob was happy about watching the Bears last night with Cutler, Marion Barber and Roy Williams on the field together, forming a Dream Team! Ron Jaworski would not shut up last night about Barber’s short yardage skills. He obviously didn’t watch any film. The Chicago papers actually believe they have a true number one receiver now in Roy Williams. Silly Bears.
1:00 – Cowboys Talk: The Cowboys have added a fourth kicker into the mix, Shayne Graham. He went 12 for 12 with the Patriots last year, yet he is still a kicker that wasn’t employed before this. Dan is worrying about the Shayne Graham distance question. In 2009, he was 2 for 4 from 50 yards and out.
1:20 – Donovan Interviews a Cowboy: He interviewed the aforementioned David Buehler. He has never dated a cheerleader but is dating a former Hooters waitress. He scored decent on his SATs. He’s somewhat versed in Ebonics. He lettered in 3 or more sports in high school. He confirms the black guys in the shower theory. The guys wonder how they forgot David Buehler in their list of over-personalitied local athletes.
1:40 – Sports Business: Bob saw some advertising for MLS on NBC during Sunday Night Football. NBC will air some MLS games over the next 3 years with most of them being shown on Versus. The deal is worth $10 million, which is tiny in comparison to the NFL but a giant leap for the MLS. The UFC has signed a $100 million a year deal for 7 years with FOX. There will be around 4 bouts a year. This a giant leap for the UFC.
2:00 – Gay Not Gay: Is it gay to have “<3s” and things surrounding your girlfriends name when she calls on your phone? Yes. Is it gay to respond for you and your buddy when both were invited to a party? Not gay. Is using a straw at a restaurant gay? Not gay. Is it gay to buy some linen pants for your buddy because he said they looked comfortable? Yes.
2:20 – Rangers Talk: C.J. Wilson was dominant last night as the Rangers beat the Red Sox in the first of four games, 4-0. Colby Lewis takes the bump against Jon Lackey tonight, both 11 game winners, even though Lackey has a 6+ ERA. Mike Napoli hit a 3 run home run last night and continues to be the hottest hitter in baseball since the All-Star Break. It’s still amazing how the Rangers pulled the under the table deal with the Blue Jays to get Napoli from the Angels. Napoli has passed the eyeball test when it comes to Rangers you want up at a crucial time in the game. C.J. Wilson is adding more and more money to his new contract with each start.
3:00 – Why Today Doesn’t Suck: On this day in 1775, Britain’s King George III declared the American colonies in rebellion. Happy Birthday to Mike Boddicker, Rex Grossman, Destination Tonsils 2, Sonny Jurgensen, Rik Smits, Julio Franco and Jay Mohr.
