3CB Center (08/13/2012)

About to kick the sports blogging into full-gear.  But first, some quick thoughts.

This McIlroy kid is pretty good. - Too bad the ChronBlog has an Astros picture tied to the story on-line.

The worst thing about this train wreck..... is that it was foreseeable.  Johnson is a train-wreck with diminishing talent.  Any team that signs him is desperate.

The Astros still suck  That is all.

10-16, 188 yards, 2 TDs - In 24 plays.  I've a feeling this Luck kid is going to be OK.

The Olympics catches it's third drug cheat. - That's three.  If you saw the games you realize how silly that number is.

Olympic boxing was terrible. AIBA's solution?  Tell NBC to move Teddy Atlas and Bob Papa away from the judges because their feelings were getting hurt. There's a strong case to be made that boxing needs to be axed from the Olympics, AIBA disbanded, and the whole thing replaced.  I'm a firm believer in that argument.  Papa and Atlas were the best part of the event.  At least they had the courage to tell the truth.

Yup, Lane Kiffin is still an idiot.

Honey Badger don't play. D-1 football that is.

The sad thing is someone is going to hire Bobby Petrino because he can coach a little.

Daryl Morey, super genius. - Now, if he could just keep from falling off that cliff.

19 days until the Cowboys Classic. - I don't think Michigan can beat Alabama but, if they do, I'm buying plane tickets for the National Championship game.

I'm excited about the Gore/Jacobs tandem But, given the strange ways of the NFL, I can't help but wonder if Gore gets cut?  Crazy, but crazier things have happened.

I'll be so glad when the football games mean something.
