Tidbits

Here are a few tidbits I found amusing today. Maybe you will, too.

From "Commitments Differ for College Players, Coaches" by NPR commentator Frank Deford:

There are, I have discovered, four things in the world today that you absolutely cannot count on:
  1. Airlines
  2. Vladimir Putin
  3. Giving a small boy a goldfish and expecting it to live very long
  4. College coaches honoring their contracts
. . . [the NCAA] is essentially to college athletic departments, what the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce is to casinos

From a story on the release tomorrow of the results of George Mitchell's 20-month investigation into drug use in baseball:
[Baseball Commissioner] Bud Selig does not plan to attend the news conference at a Manhattan hotel a few blocks from the commissioner's office.
(well, either he's too lazy to travel a couple of blocks or he is doing the MLB equivalent of sticking his fingers in his ears and screaming "I can't hear you!")

Thanks for the NPR podcast. I think Nick Saban has become the epitome of the coach with the forked tongue. Bobby Petrino is hot on his heels though.

cool dad,
I like listening to Frank Deford's commentary. He's a funny guy, easy to listen to, and looks a bit like Darren McGavinin in Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment. Be nice, and it'll stay. Be mean, and it'll go.
