Out-Duked by Ronald on a Tuesday

April 21, 2009

Usually when we find and share stories around here, they are somehow sports related.  For instance, the story from ESPN.com today about Elijah Dukes (yes that one) getting $500 from a local Washington-area Little League for an appearance in which he signed a few autographs, watched a parade, and jetted. 

Not interesting?  Okay, well he ended up being late to the game, was fined $500 and suspended by manager Manny Acta. 

Still not interesting?  Well, the Little League he was visiting PAID HIS FINE FOR HIM! 

They held a fundraiser.  Of course they did.  After all, Dukes is only making $415,500 this year (ESPN).  What a guy.  Makes me wonder how a guy like that could ever threatened his wife and kids, or impregnate a 17-year old on his grandmother’s couch and throw a Gatorade bottle at her. 

As good as that story is today, I actually have one to top it.  Follow along after the jump for the headline of the week.

Gators get crystal, but Harvin gets hosed

January 9, 2009

I know. I know. I heard sports radio all week long just like you did. Tim Tebow is now in the discussion for greatest college football player/leader/Jesus lover/philanthropist/omnipotent faith-healer of all time. So when they win the National Championship last night in a fantastic game, he’s the obvious MVP.  Right?

Wrong.

Tebow had a good game, don’t get me wrong. But he was in no way the most valuable player of that contest. That player was Percy Harvin.

I’m not one to blindly jump on the side-story of a big game, but I did see a picture of Harvin’s high ankle sprain after the FSU game… and it looked wrenched, purple, and painful.  That was only a month ago.  The guy stayed in Gainesville over the holidays to recuperate and get ready for his final college game.  Impressive, but still not the point.

Let’s just take a look at the numbers.  Tebow nearly stifled his own offense with two terrible throws that were both picked off.  That 2 picks equalled his total from the whole season.  So what did Dan Mullen do to get his offense back on track?  Give it to Percy.

Sandwich Pickem Scramble: Week 13

November 23, 2007

Dear Lord.  We’re not going to pretend like this has been easy.  Pulling together this week’s SPS has been like pulling teeth.  Here it stands late Thursday night (okay, now Friday morning) and we’re still not up to TGC’s normally excellent level of excellence (?) here.

Caught up in all the holiday traveling is one terrible fact.  This week’s SPS is being brought to you by the wonder that is dial-up internet access.  Because of that, you’re probably only going to see a text-version of this article on your Black Friday morning.  With luck, we’ll be back in APIAS headquarters in time to update to full helmety goodness by Friday night.  With luck, that is.  Well, without Freddy further Ado ado…

Week 12 Recap:  Well, TGC shook things up with an enormous amount of games that meant absolutely nothing last week.  The scores seem to reflect that a bit.

Three homers tied for the week lead with 7 each (SmoothRon, 2SL, and eDayStat).  Three more sat just behind with 6 each correct (BobWicket, Burnsy, and Peter Bean).  Again, three people hit 50% on the week with our female hero (somehow heroine has a negative connotation) Holly, TGC, and MJ all picking 5 correct.  Extra P rounded out the scoring with 4 right.  Overall, yours truly holds a 4-game lead over MJ and SR sitting in second.  I have been known to implode down the stretch folks.  Just wait for it.

Burnsy looks like a damned ACC prophet, being the only one to correctly pick the might Ryans over the cute-little-orange-helmets-with-the-paw-print-on-the-side.  BobWicket on the other hand was the only one to ball up and take FIU.  Looks like Ned has let him down again.  No homers put their faith in the Cats, which paid off last week.  On to this week’s text-only picks (with the promise of super-cool helmet JPEGS soon)!

Super Monday on temporary hiatus

September 6, 2007

plop.jpgDue to scheduling conflicts (most notably, with Monday Night Football, which honestly we should’ve seen coming) we are temporarily putting Super Monday Sports Radio on hold until we can work out a better day and time to host the show.  What with TGC’s sitting, Eday’s scheduled liquor store robberies, and the molding of young minds by 2SL and Smoothron, we’ll hopefully be able to work out a better timeframe for you guys.

Thanks everyone for listening and podcasting.  See ya soon.

Keep yourself busy in the meantime after the jump…

College Football is finally here.

I found this photo about 8 months ago and have been saving it for today… It’s from a newspaper circa 1925…  Even then they knew.

Thanks for checking in, Tim, that will be all

Sad news today sportsfans.  The Jags have released playmate-plaything Tim Couch.  There will be candlelight vigils around the state of Kentucky and just outside of the Grotto until further notice.

But hey, at least this Couch made it longer than the one left outside in Fort Sanders in the fall of 2005 before going up in flames.
