    Ha! You're exactly right on your last point Tunick- a certain cooked up Jaworski/Kaepernick story (that I don't think even made it into the ESPN thread) comes to mind from last week.

    I've always respected the guy, I loved reading his baseball blog on MLB.com after he left Current. The Jets bit rambled on a bit, but Whitlock was good and Mark Cuban was awesome. Didn't stop laughing on the around the world segment- Dwight Howard and the ping pong balls was hilarious. All in all, really good start, and I think it'll be my go-to post-work DVR show when I collapse onto the couch.

    I wish he'd update that baseball blog more often, though.

    I'd imagine he had to leave MLB.com upon signing with ESPN. Maybe he'll start writing columns on ESPN soon.

    I think he has, as I could have sworn some of the ESPN anchors were chatting up that he had some columns up on their site somewhere.

    He's too harsh there... the Indians two 90's pennants, and the Cavs 2007 Finals appearance should count for something.

    They count for more heartbreaking failure.

    One of the top ten sports moments for Cleveland in my lifetime is Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn getting a strikeout to end the top of the ninth, allowing the Indians to win a FICTIONAL division title with an amazing and gutsy play in the bottom of the ninth.

    'Nuff said

    At least Olbermann agrees with me. :p

    Larry King is filling in for KO next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

    Other announced guest hosts for Olbermann are Jeremy Schaap and...colin cowherd...

    How's everyone's Fantasy Leagues doing? Mine is actually doing fairly well despite me not knowing much about football.

    So randomly having your favorite baseball team in town as the visiting team when you are on a business trip and randomly ending up in a section with other fans from that team is pretty damn cool

    The last time I attended a Dodger game outside of L.A. was in the summer of '05, when me & my dad made a trip to PETCO Park. It really is a lovely stadium, in a rather niiiiiiiiiiiice section of San Diego. And, the Indians visit Dodger Stadium next season (June 30th-July 2nd)...


    @I Are The Internets: I don't play fantasy football, so I can't answer your question. :p


    @heels1785: Larry King is the one I look forward to the most... like Olbermann, he's a huge baseball fan. That's always a great thing in my book. Schapp will be a quality fill in as well.


    @Juliet316 : Still pissed off at Cowherd for his insensitive & ridiculous comments about Eddie Guerrero? Good.

    I'm watching more football than I ever have. Still have no idea what's going on.

    I don't understand this thread title, what is a BAN RAZOR, and why are we talking about it?

    Edit: I just found the answer, it involves neckbeards

    Pretty much. Somethings are absolutely unforgiveable.

    Most halloween costumes on TV are corny. Here's your exception:

    Okay, so my latest idea as the Mad Hatter of Arena Games.

    Using the WhatIf Simulator we use for the Basketball Draft ...

    Instead of selecting/drafting "Dream teams", I propose a 16-team dream tournament of college football teams. On a first-come, first serve basis, you'd select the team you want for a 16-team, double-elimination tournament. You don't get to select players, but you an adjust depth charts, and playbook strategies (Balanced, Heavy Run, Favor Pass, etc.). The simulator allows for any team from 1996-2012, allowing for plenty of choice in who you'd want to back. The dominant USC teams? The Miami resurgance? The Auburn team that got screwed? The Auburn team that did a lot of screwing? The recent 'Bama teams?

    Anyone interested?

    Despite NCAA football being the only collegiate sport I enjoy watching, I don't have enough knowledge of its past to really be good at a sim. So, no thanks.
