Tales About Baseball Greats! posted by IowaWriter

How did "Catfish" Hunter get his nickname?  The story that went around was that while the A's were waiting at Jimmy Hunter's farmhouse to sign him to his first professional baseball contract, he was fishing down in the creek.  After waiting for several hours the A's representive saw Jimmy walking home with a large string of catfish. 

It sounds nice, but it isn't true at all.  The real story is that the owner of the A's Charlie Finley, made up the whole story because he wanted his players to have nicknames that people could relate to.  Jimmy went along with the bogus nickname because he felt it gave him a special advantage over his rivals.  If a fan called Jimmy "Catfish" he knew that he didn't know that person.  His real friends/fans never called him "Catfish" because they knew the real story behind that name!

Cowboy Up? posted by Master Wayne

When are the Suns going to get sick of being beat up by the Spurs, and moreover, beat up by the Spurs at the Spur's leisure? Phoenix had this game, until the Spurs decided to take it back, and with a willing team to hand it over once things got rough. The Spurs bully the Suns. Always have, even back in the late nineties with Chuck. And the Suns, just seem to be ok with that. I'm beginning to wonder if the Suns, in this current lineup, will ever be able to knock out the Spurs. I think the Suns are so used to being bested by San Antone that this is what they expect when they play them. Will the Suns ever get sick and tired of this? The same result, every time. How many more beat downs, busted noses, hip checks, and dagger three balls are we going to take? When will this Suns team actually play with some fire and not allow this Spurs team to push them around like a school yard bully taking lunch money? I don't know. But what troubles me even more is, I dont think the Suns know either! Seems as though the Suns have become creatures of habit, and unfortunately losing to Spurs is a habit as hard to break as quitting smoking for them. This team needs to get angry and play angry with the Spurs. They need intensity, which they are sorely lacking, and this shows up in their record so far. Otherwise we are all going fishing early again this summer. Cowboy up Suns!Continue reading "Cowboy Up?"

Brett Favre--what's next? posted by Richard Zowie

I was very surprised by this controversy. Seeing Favre's tearful retirement press conference back in March made me think of how the Gunslinger Era is over in the NFL. Five years from now, Favre would give his Hall of Fame speech in Canton, Ohio. For now, Favre's day would revolve around fishing, playing golf, serving as a football consultant of sorts and answering questions like "What in the heck was Jerry Glanville* thinking when he traded you to the Green Bay Packers for a first-round pick that, just a few years later, was out of football?"

Now, it's possible Favre (rhymes with "carve", for those of you who don't follow sports) might be playing again the next season. Trade me or release me from my contract, he told the Packers recently. No, the Packers replied, ostensibly hoping that Number 4 would reconsider and return to retirement. Perhaps Favre is just one of those guys who misses football. Or maybe he feels that he has unfinished business with the way things ended last season. As of right now, Favre has this bizarre claim to fame: both his first and final NFL passes were both intercepted. His final interception set up the New York Giants' game-winning field goal as the Giants won 23-20 in overtime.

Where would Favre go? Perhaps to the Chicago Bears, whose idea of a starting quarterback has been Rex "Wrecks" Grossman?

To the Minnesota Vikings, who had no solid quarterback last season but drafted USC QB John David Booty 137th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft's fifth round?

To the Detroit Lions, whose team is like the broken-down, rusted engine of a 1957 Chevrolet: in desperate need of being rebuilt? But then, does Favre really want to deal with Matt Millen's ineptitude?

Best NFL Announcers posted by Cherie

If there’s one thing that can turn a football fan’s excitement down a notch right before a game, it’s finding out your game has been given a less-than-stellar announcing crew.  Part of determining that your team is getting some well-deserved NFL love is realizing which announcing crew you’ve been assigned. 

 

After all, a great announcing crew will give you the play by play when the camera doesn’t pick it up.  When a flag is thrown and the announcing crew yaks on about their fishing trips, wives, or someone hair in the stand rather than tell you why the flag was thrown, you know you’ve got an issue.

 

To illustrate this point, remember the Packer-Minnesota game on the NFL network this year?  We got to hear Cris Collinsworth and Bryant Gumbel fumble their way through that one.  The announcing, especially on Gumbel’s part, was absolutely a joke.  As fans at home, we were tempted to turn off the sound and watch the game with the radio on instead.

 

I do enjoy the announcing of Ron Pitts, because he’s one of the few that can catch an error on the field and explain it.  The same exists with Kevin Harlan.  No better announcer in my opinion.

 

The best team?  That’s Troy Aikman and Joe Buck.  Especially this year.  These guys call the plays correctly and do it without being biased. 

 The worst?  Sorry to say it’s Al Michaels and John Madden.  Madden is simply goofy and Michaels seems bored half the time.

The trade is done... the waiver wire work has begun. posted by Roland Lesterlin

I woke up this morning with a sense of joy.  Jarome Iginla managed to produce a wonderful 4 point night, including a game winner.  As any fantasy hockey enthusiast will surely attest, a hat trick is a wonderful thing.  A hat trick that includes a powerplay goal and a game winning goal is even better; throw in 9 shots on goal and a couple of PIMS and the dream night is complete. 

As we approach the 30 game mark of the season, it is time to let the sleeping dogs lie.  If you have underperformers on your fantasy team, now is the time to cut bait and find new fertile fishing grounds.  It is better to have a hot player that gets you a few points then drop him and find the next hot commodity then to hang onto a massive underperformer.  It is true that I continue to hold my breath on Maxim Afinogenov, but that is because he has finally started to put up points. 

Here are some hot players to consider: 

Sean Avery:  One of the leagues best agitators is returning to the Blue shirts line-up.  New York wins with this guy in the line-up.  He will get plenty of PIMS, shots and even powerplay time.  What more could you want from your 2nd or 3rd string LW?

Mike Fischer:  This guy can flat out play the game.  If he was on a team that didn’t boast some of the highest scoring professionals in the game today, he would get a lot more respect.  He’s feeling it right now and his ice-time is increasing.  Ride him while he’s hot, which might be for a little longer than you’d expect.
