Thanks - First to all of my readers and supporters who voted for Ed The Sports Fan since my start in March of '08. I'm a movement by myself, but we're a force when we're together. Lets get it...To Brandon Jacobs, for literally making me come out my seat and make a Ric Flair noise (WOOOOOOOO) when he FLATLINED hard-hitting Laron Landry last night in the Giants-Redskins game. Amazing Jacobs is (6'4", 270 lbs) in that he was NUMBER THREE on Auburn's depth chart behind Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown before transferring to So. Illinois...To the University of Oklahoma's schedule makers, for scheduling the Oklahoma vs. Cincinnati game while I live in Cincinnati. Do you know how many people are talking to me now? They're all like, "UC's gonna beat OU, just watch." Do you all know how mad they're gonna be (Rick I hope you read this you fruitcake) when OU stomps their hopes and dreams with our beastly O-Line, power run game, and devastating defense? They'll feel befuddled, hoodwinked, and bamboozled. OU 31, UC 10.
Thoughts - Tatum Bell stole Rudi Johnson's luggage after Rudi Johnson stole Tatum Bell's job? Classic. Tatum's a man of action, and he decided to have his revenge immediately, by allegedly stealing the luggage of the man brought in to replace him. Nice work, Tatum Bell. You just tarnished your reputation, became a known thief, and made it borderline impossible for you to get another job in the NFL...Daunte Culpepper retired from the NFL on Thursday, After a near-MVP season in 2004, Culpepper never rebounded from a 2005 knee injury and struggled to find a quality gig the next 2 years. I hope he comes back to the league so that I can see him "get his ROLL on" in the endzone one more time...Chad Johnson (former Langston University football player) legally changed his name to Chad Ocho Cinco. For the record, I love it. I wish people would have more fun in life, the Bengals roster is in shambles, players in jail, no hope for the future, and yet Chad steals the news and lets those "issues" fly under the radar. I'm buying the 2XL #85 Ocho Cinco jersey on sight.
Hate - I hate the Yankees, period. I don't think I've ever rooted for them. And over the last week, I've seen more useless home runs from Alex Rodriguez that I will now label him "The Biggest Fraud in the World." Why? Because he hits the most non-game-impacting (just made that word up) home runs ever, and makes no difference in games unless he messes up. Note that this has nothing to do with money, because I'm all about getting money. But since '04, the Yankees have gotten progressively worse, good for them...I hate the fact that if Chris "Beenie" Wells is hurt, and Ohio State goes into the game with USC and he's not claiming to be 100%, that if Ohio State loses that they will lean SO MUCH on the injury as to why they lost that it'll piss me off. Buckeye fans, you've got a loaded squad and have more experienced players, go in there and win. Period.
Folks enjoy the weekend, and when you watch the Sooners, think of Ed, because he'll be reveling in victorious praise and adulation for his Sooners. Godspeed.
