“”…I let it go. And I said to myself, this is the business we’ve chosen!”

—Hyman Roth

Oh, I’ve always been a fantasy baseball fan….Can’t believe it took me this long to get into it.

Funny how the NFL not only has its regular season, its playoff season, its Super Bowl…but draft season, and the NFL Draft itself is one of the best sports days of the year.

“Tebow doesn’t drink, so he never got a chance to read the bar napkin the Jets’ offense was scribbled on.”—Funny Washington Post comment on the New York Jets releasing of quarterback Tim Tebow.

I’m a Tebow fan, but he’s not built for the CFL. He’s built for the NFL and has a second round playoff appearance to back it up.

First Add Dodgers: Wasn’t Carl Crawford just supposed to be another piece of the Red Sox salary dump last season? Wasn’t he going to be released before we got to spring training this season?

Did West Virginia’s Geno Smith seemingly get shafted? Yes.

Did he show a lot of guts and character by sticking around for the second day of the draft? Yes.

Should he be the Jets starting quarterback by Week Eight 8? Yes.

So did all that transpired around him work for his benefit in the end? Yes.

Go Geno!

When Jay Mohr broke in doing comedy he was edgy, he was funny, he was different. Since he’s become a sports talk show host, he’s turned into the most common, ordinary,  least inspiring voice on radio.


Because this edgy, out there personality, has become a major suck up without one independent thought.

Next Add Dodgers: If the Dodgers end up winning the World Series this season (with this current cast), then doesn’t the trade of James Loney, Ivan DeJesus, Allen Webster, and Rubby De La Rosa to Boston for Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto become one of the greatest in MLB history?

Define bravery…We have folks saying the word “great” is thrown around too easily…(I think I agree with that)…but doesn’t the word “brave” or “bravery” get thrown out far too easily.

Since we’re talking baseball…talk about the job El Monte baseball HC Steven Urena has done.

Last Add Independent Thought: Have independent thoughts, but double check to make sure your independent thoughts are truly independent…and not the same as everybody else.

Last Add Dodgers: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton has two home runs in 2013. Carl Crawford has four.

First Add Lakers:…Yeah
