“’Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.”— Howard Beale
As of last Monday morning, I wasn’t sure if I was still a fan of fantasy football or not.
Note to Tom Brady: Hey, Pretty Boy, when the goal line is in front of you…when paydirt is in sight, you go headfirst. You don’t slide as if you just doubled down the third base line.
Hey the Lakers won a game.
…And hey, its been a while since the Clippers lost a game.
Nice service for Jim “Papa” Singiser Sr. on Saturday afternoon. Great father.
Congrats to Tim Peterson…The Mid Valley New wordsmith and producer of “The Peterson Principle”…actually did a Christmas column where he didn’t pretend to hand out gifts to popular sports figures.
Do you know what I’m talking about?
It goes something like this…: “And to El Monte HC Joel Sanchez I give him a quarterback, because after Brandon Martinez graduates this June he is going to need one…”
And on and on they go…He might say something else like: “…And to Big Tony, I give him an all access pass to the buffet at the MGM Grand.”
Speaking of football (even during basketball season) a local football coach is looking for a defensive backs coach and a defensive coordinator with some experience. If you or anyone else you know has an interest contact me through the email at the bottom of this column.
El Monte American Little League will be having sign ups for the 2013 season at Pioneer Park every Saturday (10:AM) during the month of January. Bob Butler is the new president at EMA.
Can I bag on Tom Brady again?
Thinking about USC, shouldn’t the offensive coordinator be calling the plays? You’d think Lane Kiffin, after his experience with the Oakland Raiders, would understand the whole concept of what a control freak is.
You’d think he’d understand it even better when his own play calling led USC all the way to El Paso, Texas this post season.
…Ugh…Any room on the UCLA bandwagon?
“The Mid Valley Sports Show” is on hiatus until after the holidays.
All I can say is…Evil exists, and it must be dealt with.
