Oregon football on probation?


I didn’t see that one coming.

OK, here’s where I would put “LOL” in there to show you DID see that one coming.

“I didn’t see that one coming.  LOL.”

There…fixed it.

My question is this:  What happens now to the folks who used to take the exams for the football players at Oregon?  Do they still remain employed with the Oregon athletic department or does the clean-up cost them their jobs?

Just wondering.


I had a bunch of really good one-liners about Aaron Hernandez on Twitter last night.

Some folks might think “too soon”…but I go with the whole “once the arraignment has occurred, he’s fair game” theory.

On the field, in all seriousness, it would appear the Patriots are going to have to find a new weapon at tight end since they cut Hernandez yesterday.

Off the field, my suggestion to Hernandez would simply be this:  “Bite the bullet and tell the truth…now.”

OK, I’m here all week.  Try the veal.


Man, Cleveland’s Scott Kazmir was really good last night, huh?

As I watched him throw a handful of no-hit innings, I thought to myself, “When the levee breaks, this guy’s gonna give up a boatload of runs.”

Alas, he didn’t.


I’ll give you this one in honor of MASN broadcaster Jim Hunter, who spent roughly 35% of last night’s post-game show complaining about the umpires.

Today would have been Helen Keller’s 133rd birthday.

I assume she would have celebrated by umpiring behind the plate tonight at Camden Yards.  She couldn’t be worse than Ted Barrett.

    Another college football program on probation? SHOCKING!! LOL! Hernandez is proof positive that you just can’t fix…….STUPID! When the O’s bats go silent, as they did in the post season last year, they’re in big trouble! And, I agree with the assessment that for all their offensive prowess, they leave way too many men on base! Complaining about officiating, which, arguably leaves much to be desired in ALL sports, is a lament for……losers!

    At the risk of sounding like a “loser”………….this Seahawks fan still stays awake at night lamenting about the officials in Super Bowl XL……or The Bettis Bowl.

    Isn’t it about time that a machine calls balls and strikes in baseball games. Obviously human beings have become less than capable of doing so if they ever were any good at it at all. The ridiculous part is that the strike zone has become a matter of opinion, not a concrete fact. Here is how I thought it worked: A strike is a ball thrown over home plate from the knees to the letters on the jersey. It seems simple enough but if you watch enough baseball you know that it is anything but. Umpires can still make safe and out calls on the bases but let a computer get ball and strike calls correct consistently, please. Thank You.
