Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

December 23, 2008 | Glenn Clark

Tuesday Top 7:

7-Chris Chester (Me, Drew)

We both thought Chester was tremendous down the stretch; springing the long runs, and throwing a block on the fake FG.

6-Le’Ron McClain (me), Sam Koch (Drew)

I think McClain’s day was mediocre…..UNTIL he broke off that run. Drew doesn’t think you can take TOO much from the fake field goal; but knows Koch was very good anyway.

5-Ray Lewis (me), Fabian Washington (Drew)

I’m running out of ways to describe Ray’s performance on a weekly basis; Drew just wants Fabian Washington to stop doing the “You Can’t See Me” thing after every play he makes.

4-Joe Flacco (me), Terrell Suggs (Drew)

I think Flacco showed great poise and confidence in the win; Drew thinks Suggs is moving into the territory of “so good there’s nothing else we can say about him.”

3-Sam Koch (me), Ray Lewis (Drew)

I think Sam Koch is helping this team win games week in and week out, and has been one of the best players on the roster. Drew MIGHT want to marry Ray.

2-Ed Reed (me), Joe Flacco (Drew)

I think you can’t ignore 2 interceptions-even if they were thrown right to him. Drew is just going to tell Flacco “I love you” one of these Tuesday mornings.

1-Derrick Mason (me, Drew)

The only question left is whether or not he belongs in the Ring of Honor.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-Congratulations to our VERY special Athlete of the Morning-Rich Jerome-who bowled a perfect set last night at Perry Hall Lanes-THREE perfect games in a row for 900. It is believed to be the first ever 900 in the history of the state; and one of only ten in competitive bowling history. Unreal.

-Nebraska 74, UMBC 68. This one will remain close tonight.

Talk to you tomorrow.

-G
