Scott canít shut up todayÖI got a lot to say so lets get started with
Iím Just sayingÖ..
Mark Skiba came within 13 seconds of winning $50,000, as Florida State beat Auburn, in an exciting game, 34-31. Last January Markís dad was on vacation in Las Vegas when he placed a $100 bet for his son on Auburn to win the National Title at 500-to-1 odds.
Congratulations to Florida State. Thanks goodness the SEC streak is over!!
Not again. DeSean Jackson is seeking another pay raise. He has three years remaining on his contract which pays him $50 million over the duration of the contract. This is the same guy who came out, a couple of years ago, and said he wasnít giving it all he had because he wanted a new contract. I hope the Eagles donít renegotiate.
As a Yankee fan, I hope New York eats the contract of A-Roid and release him. Let another team sign him and have all the headaches that follow him around.
Seven-year, $126 million dollar contract. Wow, what great quarterback got that contract? Jay Cutler!! What the %&(@#%*. If he is worth that much, how much is Russell Wilson or Andrew Luck worth???? Stand buy for huge pay for elite, or above average quarterbacks.
Does Dion Sanders have to play in the pro bowl??? Please say it ainít so.
This is Clark and he is the new mascot of the Chicago Cubs. Oh boy, like this is going to help them win.
Christian Laettnerís famous shirt was sold at auction for $119,500. Believe-it-or-not, this is the second-highest price for a game-worn basketball jersey. In 2011, a DR. J Virginia Squires game-used jersey sold for $190,414.
The Hall of Fame has three new outstanding players entering the shrine in Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine.
Thomas had a .301 average, 2,468 hits, 521 homeruns, 1,494 runs and 1,704 Rbiís, 1,667 walks and 1,397 strikeouts. 1993, 1994 AL MVP, 1993 MLB Player of the Year.
Glavine won 60% of his games he started with a record of 305-203. He had a era of 3.54 with 25 shutouts, 2,607 strikeouts and 1,500 walks. Glavine won 2 Cy Young awards and was 1995 World Series MVP.
In his 23 years, Maddux won 61% of his games started with a record of 355-227 and a ERA of 3.16. He pitched 35 shoutouts, walked 999 batters and 3,371 strikeouts. Maddux won 4 consecutive CY Young awards, 4 time Sporting News Pitcher of the Year.
It is ashamed that Craig Biggio missed it by 2 votes.
Speaking of Hall of Fame, I agree with TheBeezer (did I just say that). Read his rant on the HOF selection here
He is right. There is no reason why a player who has a outstanding career canít receive 100% of the votes. Aaron, Mays, Ruth, MadduxÖetc, etc. all deserved to be admitted with 100% of the votes. There has got to be a better way to select players.
Wow, did I say a mouth full. Have a great week.
