Swing Low, Sweet Chariot...

yeah, I'm singing the blues tonight...

but at the end of the day...
life goes on.

I hate to lose more than anybody,
but this Indiana team, and this Indiana coach
is like no other...

Bob Knight was hated for his antics...
he was isn't blunt enough of a description;
he was "in yo face"...
and seemingly, Tom Crean is quite the opposite,
but seeking the same goal....

Tom Crean is teaching these young men to become leaders,
on his terms...
there aren't chairs being thrown, there will never be a player choked,
nobody is going to catch a rationing of F bombs...

but like him or hate him, IU is once again in the discussion...


we would all do things differently, but Crean is in charge and doing it
his way...

I'm still on board...(by the way, I was on board when we were 6-25).

If you post on CBS sports...

your wife thinks you are lazy...
if your wife thinks you are lazy, you want to prove her wrong...
if you want to prove her wrong, you pick up an ax..
if you pick up an ax, you chop dumb crap up..
if you chop dump crap up, you have a mess to clean up..
if you have a mess to clean up, you want to start drinking beer...
if you start drinking beer, you want to make love in a row boat...
if you make love in a row boat, your nuts WILL find a left over fishing hook...

Don't let your nuts find a leftover fishing hook!

The greatest night in baseball


Even if you aren't a baseball fan, you have to appreciate the way this regular season played out last night.

-Boston has a 9-1/2 game lead coming into September
-Atlanta has a 10-1/2 game lead in the last week in August.

Both succumb to monumental letdowns, and both lose their playoff spots on the last day of the season!!!

The Rays glorious night was a little more dramatic, being down 7-0 and winning in 12 with a walk off homer
by Longoria (his 2nd of the night)...nevermind that the Red Sox had a lead going into the torrential downpour, only to lose in the
9th after the storm; at the hands of their super-closer Papelbon...

I'm sure the Braves/Cardinal night was equally magical...but I didn't watch that one unfold...

either way...

twas the greatest night in baseball...Period.

What truely is a "No-No"??

Ok so Ervin Santana throws a no-hitter today for the Angels against the Cleveland Indians...

Am I impressed? Sure.  Hell, I have him on my Fantasy Baseball team; I've sat him at times, and just this week decided to put
him in to replace Bartolo Colon.

Good move, right? 

I give him all the credit and props in the world, and he deserves it.

But who the hell came up with the term, "NoNo" to describe a no hitter that still produced base runners and a run for the Tribe?

I get the 1st No...what does the 2nd No refer too??

no clue
no show (by the opposing team)
no doubt (a great game)
no one else gets to pitch?
no body knows...

I used to think a NoNo was no hits and no baserunners...I was quickly and assuredly corrected by all baseball scholars, that is called a
"perfect game"...27 up 27 down...

so, here I am, still wondering why a no-hitter is called a "no-no"...

I could see a no-no being no hits and no runs....but Cleveland scored today, and the sports junkies are still calling it a "no-no"...

why, damn it?
