That’s right, TUESDAY.


Let the Mark Sanchez vs Mitch Mustain battle kick into high gear. Soon enough we will know who our starting QB will be.  Right now my money is on Sanchez, but I reserve the right to change my mind given evidence to come.

maybe the name of this site should be “”

March 11, 2008

Seriously. The guys over at Trojan Wire are reporting that Carolina Panthers Wide out and former Trojan great DwayneDJ Mugshot Jarrett was arrested in the wee hours of the morning (3am to be exact) for a DUI in North Carolina.

Now this just begs the question: Were my pals over at Sports Brethren out drinking in North Cackalak last night? Did they have anything to do with this? LOL

Hey football fiends-

I am here, I just have extremely limited internet access these days. I have time to research or to write and post. Not both. I should get this worked out over the next week or so and be back to posting on a near daily basis about the upcoming NFL draft, the battle between Mark Sanchez and Mitch Mustain for starting QB at USC, and as always, all things football. Trust me, it has not escaped my notice that my Trojans are getting arrested left and right.

Plus, Selection Sunday is coming up.  So there is lots to talk about.

I just need FAST reliable, non crashing internet service to do it.

Brett Favre retires: Is this supposed to be shocking?

March 4, 2008

Seriously? Is this supposed to be shocking? The guy is 38 years old. He’s just finished a stellar season. At 38 years old. Does anyone think he’ll pull it off at 39 (which he turns in October), at 40? It’s time people. Time for Brett to spend time doing other things he loves, time for Brett to be with his family, all that “life after football” crap. He’s one of the most beloved sports figures in recent memory (if not ever).

I am also 38. And sure I’m no elite athlete, but I am slower to move in the mornings than I was at 28. And it’s crept up all of a sudden. Let’s just imagine we’re an NFL QB who has played 17 seasons. Seventeen ass kicking, QB sacking, hard on the body seasons.

Yeah, OUCH, right?

Favre has had a wonderful career. He’s always shown grace and class. I wish him all the best in his post football pursuits.
