I'm Just Saying - Family/Personal Style
Posted by ScottJax77 on Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 8:05:06 PM

I have been gone for a while and I probably will be for another three weeks. This has got to have been the worst two months of my life.

First, while at work, I get a phone call from my sister telling me that mom has fallen and they called 911. They told me which hospital they were taking her too so I told my supervisor and they let me off the night. Got to the hospital before the ambulance showed up and it took me 35 minutes to get there. They show up 10 minutes later. We got my mom checked in and they started tests. Turns out she had a heart attack.

Okay mom is taken care of, and the next day (Sunday) my wife starts complaining about stomach pain. She says she will call the doctor on Monday. Monday she calls the doctor and he has appointments available. I tell her to go to the hospital. She wants to go to the doctor so I tell her if the doctor has no appointments when she calls on Tuesday we go to the satellite emergency room (the hospital has a 10 bed emergency room right next to my developmenty). Calls doctor tuesday and there is nothing available. We go to the emergency room and they take e-rays and blood work. The emergency room calls the hospital and they get a room available for critical care. They have to wait about 20 minutes for the room to be ready. I leave my wife and head home to feed and walk the dog and then put him in his room. I get to her room at the hospital just as is being set in bed. Doctor comes in and tells us she has a blockage in her stomach. She goes the operating room and I go to the waiting area. After a couple of hours the doctor comes out and tells my son and I that they found 7 large objects in her stomach as large as walnuts. We can't figure out how that could possibly have happen. Try putting a large walnut down your throat would cause a gag reflex. Okay, so who is going to dispute a doctor.

Things look like its going well and then my wife is starting to complain about her stomach. She is still bleeding internally. They go in again and find a small tear in her small intestines. So she finally gets out of the hospital and goes to a rehab center and guess what...they find she is still bleeding. She goes back to the hospital and they run more tests. Turns out she has hemmoroids..They figure that can wait for another time and they send her back to the rehab center except they can't because there are no rooms available. So after three extra days in the hospital she finally goes back to the rehab center  where she is still at.

During all this I end up with a huge ulcer which took two operations to fix. I am now out of the hospital and completed rehab. Now I have in-house rehab which I'm doing at my mom and sister's house for anothetr two weeks.

I do want to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I'm Just Saying....The Irish were robbed???
Posted by ScottJax77 on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 8:44:37 AM

Before I start, I want to remind the Gabbers that I don't like Notre Dame. I am just stating what I saw. The offense pass interference call against the Irish was bullshit!! It was the same play that FSU used for most of the game against Syracuse and they were not call for for pass interference at all.

The Blake Bortles Era has Begun!!!!
Posted by ScottJax77 on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 9:01:25 AM

Yesterday, the fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars have spoken…60,601 of them. It started after the first offensive series, 3 and out (run, run, pass). The same old stale start the game football that the Jaguars offense has used for the past 4 years. You could hear a small rumbling of boos as the offense went off the field. Then as the offense could do nothing the chanting started from the North End Zone. Softly…We want Bortles..We want Bortles..By the time the team walked off the field all the fans were chanting We want Bortles…

When Jacksonville got the ball in the second half and Bortles ran on the field we all gave Blake a standing ovation.

The Blake Bortles era has begun!! Yes! Yes!

He was far from perfect. 14 of 24 for 223 yards with 2 touchdowns and two interceptions. He even had 30 yards rushing. But when Bortles threw an interception the fans gave him a standing ovation and I will explain why.

There seemed to be a big difference between Bortles and Henne. Bortles moves out of the pocket well, he wasn’t afraid to throw into double coverage something Henne never does, and Blake is not afraid to improvise when needed. The offensive line played way better under Bortles. Now I know its one game but its there for all to see.

I’m not going to say we will win 4 games like last year, not even six. But, I will be happier if the offense scores more points. It might take a little longer to start fighting for a playoff spot as I was hoping for next year, but by 2016 we better be fighting for a playoff sport. You know what? If we spend some $$$ on offensive lineman next year, we might been in the running for a playoff spot. Ooops, Forgot one thing. Jacksonville’s defensive has to remember how to tackle. You can’t play extra $$$ for that.

I'm Just Saying.....Don't Beat Me, Or Should You??
Posted by ScottJax77 on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 4:17:44 AM

I'm Just Saying.....

Now that I have your attention…

I want to say thank you mom. Thanks for all the beatings you gave me growing up. Some I know I deserved and some, at the time, I didn’t think I deserved. But, in the end, I knew that everything I received was worth every strike of the belt to my ass.

This is the belt my mom used. Though I am 59, the belt is over 80 years old. I'm told is was used on my dad and aunt when they were kids. But, the missing colors of the belt can be found on my butt cheeks. I never bled, and I don’t think my mom tried to hurt me, at least that is what she says today. Love ya mom. In fact, the ass was the only place you hit me. Never on the legs, never in the face or any other part of my body.

I know that all my “punishments” were done to “put me in-line” so I would not go on the wrong path in life. For that I am internally grateful.

I am also grateful that you did not abuse me. You only punished me when I did something wrong, which seemed to be a lot. For someone who looked innocent when I was young, I was actually a devil of a child. Today I’m no Saint, but God only knows what I would have turned out to be.

To Mr. Peterson, there is no crime in punishing a child. The crime comes into play when there is physical harm to the child.

I’m Just Saying…..

Oh No Batman, Baseball in November……

The MLB regular season is scheduled to end October 4, 2015. The World Series is to start on October 28th.

I thought that football was meant for the outdoors in November..


Coaches, Coach and Athletic Directors Direct. Or so they should. AD’s should be somewhere inside the stadium minding their own business regardless what there coaches want.


Okay, he has won more Super Bowls than his more famous brother, but I think it is time to let Eli take a back seat and give Ryan Nassib s chance to prove himself. This way the G-Men will find out once and for all if Ryan is the man for the team in the future.


I was excited at halftime of the Jaguars-Eagles game. Allen Hurns 2 TD’s from Henne propelling them to a 17-0 lead. Then what the hell happened in the second half?? The Eagle’s score 37 unanswered points. Now technically there is no such thing is unanswered points. All the points were accounted for when the game was over. Was it the real Henne? Or did the Jaguars go soft all of a sudden?? The team lacks depth at linebacker. But our 3rd string safety, Chris Prosinski, got burnt. What about our running game? Only 62 yards. Gee how are ya going to win like that.

The only good thing about this game is they scored more points Sunday then they did against the Chiefs in last years opener (only 2 points).

The phone lines were busy at 1010XL the sports radio station. Most of the people who called in wanted Blake Bortles in the 4th quarter. But, he will start soon. Hopefully by the first home game in two weeks.


I am glad that Ray Rice finally got what was coming to him. Now if his wife was smart she should dump his ass.


Til next time

Scott

I'm Just Saying.....Fantasy Football Draft
Posted by ScottJax77 on Monday, August 25, 2014 at 12:59:58 AM

Yesterday I had my fantasy football draft. I think this was the hardest I ever had to work in selecting a team. My draft day strategy changed several times before draft day even arrived. I knew I had the 5th pick in the draft (we do it just like the NFL, based on the previous seasons won/lost record) so I had time to over analyze. In the league I’m in you have to pick 2 QB, 2 K, 2 Def, 4 RB, 5 WR/TE. So Gabbers, here is my draft in the order I picked them:

TE Jimmy Graham

WR Julio Jones

RB DeMarco Murray

RB Zac Stacy

RB Frank Gore

WR Michael Floyd

D Carolina

K Mason Crosby

QB Nick Foles

WR Reggie Wayne

QB Ben Roethlisberger

D New England

RB Bernard Pierce

K Greg Zuerlein

WR Marqise Lee

 

Notes: This draft was the first time I ever drafted 3 RB in a row.

Adrian Peterson was taken first

Jamaal Charles was taken second.

Peyton Manning taken third.

LeSean McCoy was taken fourth.

Marshawn Lynch was taken in the second round.

Seattle was the first defense taken and that was in the fourth round.

I took the first kicker in the eighth round.

WR’s Boldin and Evans were not taken.

I'm Just Saying.....Jacksonville Jaguars Practice
Posted by ScottJax77 on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 7:25:32 AM

I went to visit the Jacksonville Jaguars practice for the first time in two years. I don’t know why I did not attend last year, but I made up for it this year…Here are some pictures I took from the practice:

 

Coach Bradley has got to be the most upbeat person I have ever met. He is always smiling. He is definitely a players coach.


This is our long snapper Carson Tinker


Our starting middle linebacker Paul Posluszny


Jacksonville quarterbacks in camp. To the left is Chad Henne (shirt is up), number 5 is our number one pick Blake Bortles, number 2 is Ricky Stanzi, our likely number 3 backup, and number 6 is Stephen Morris a rookie out of Miami.


This is Nate Stupar the backup linebacker to Posluszny.


This is our 1st second round pick Marquise Lee. He is going to be a good one. He will be our starting WR.


Number 89 is our starting TE Marcedes Lewis. The Jags are going to pass the ball more to him this year.


The dude looking right at ya is our starting FB Will Ta’ufo’ou.


This is our backup LG Drew Nowak.


There were three towers video taping practice. I wonder how they knew what to record.


That is Henne taking the snap.


Coach Bradley yaking it up with LaRoy Reynolds our starting weak linebacker.


Johnathan Cyprien our starting strong safety.


That’s undrafted rookie quarterback Stephen Morris taking the snap.


 

 

--

During practices and even during warm-ups before each regular season game, coach Bradley always give a high-five to his players.


Various practice pictures…

 

I hope you enjoyed these pictures from practice.

I'm Just Saying....Jacksonville Jaguars huge scoreboards unveiled here
Posted by ScottJax77 on Sunday, July 27, 2014 at 9:37:29 AM

Yesterday the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled their new $63 million dollar scoreboards. It started off with a soccer game between Fulham and DC United. Fulham won the game 3-0.


This is a picture of the new scoreboard at the North End Zone. The video displays what the video of the old scoreboard looks like as compared to the new board. The new boards are 60 feet high and 320 feet wide.

Under this scoreboard are cabana’s. Each one seat 20 people at a cost of $250 a seat. We have a friend that purchase all 20 seats for the season at a cost of $45,000 for the season. It includes access to the two swimming pools and all you can eat food and drinks. There are also two spa-type wading pools 25 feet long and 12 feet wide and is 3.5 feet deep. Each one is located on opposite sides of the North End Zone.


Another view of the North End Zone scoreboard.


This is the South End Zone. The Upper two floors are party zones and a sports bar. Down below just above the end zone seats is the Bud Zone. It’s the Bud Zone area that you usually meet friends at.


Stage for Carrie Underwood concert.


Mayor Brown. Got at luke warm reception. He is talking about raising property taxes and raising the Cities debt another $235 million dollars. You know how that goes.


Owner of the Jaguars, Shad Khan. He got a 1 minute standing ovation from the 52.961 fans in attendance.


This is one of the video’s I took of the new scoreboard. Sorry its narrow, I have not figured out how to make the video full screen.


Here is another video. I hope these came out.


Carrie Underwood. Duh…


Another picture of the concert.

 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Bye the way, I am not a fan of country music, but I sure did have a great time.

 

Scott

Tony Gwynn loses his battle with cancer
Posted by ScottJax77 on Monday, June 16, 2014 at 11:31:23 AM

Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has died at the age of 54. The eight time batting champ played 20 years with the San Diego Padres. He was one of the greatest players of all-time with 3,141 hits, 1,383 runs, 1,138 RBI's, walked 790 times and only struckout 434 times. Tony was an 8-time batting champ, had 19 seasons of batting above .300, yet his greatest accomplishment might have been that he reached base in 75% of his times games that he played in, which was 2,440 games.

Baseball lost a great man and a great human being. RIP Tony Gwynn
