A big fuck you to the doorknob (who at first I thought he was joking, but then found out he was serious) who kept going on and on about the revisionist history going on with the Rays throw-back jersey's during last night's Tigers/Rays game.

I mean, this a-hole would not shut the fuck up about how it was an affront to baseball's legacy and an insult to the sanctity of the game.

I took great pleasure in telling him how cool they were and that the folks in the Rays front office are marketing geniuses. Also when he started praising the Tigers old home jerseys ("I'm glad they aren't the button fronts.") I pointed out that they were wearing the stars and stripes caps which makes every team look like a softball team. He couldn't argue with that.

For a while now, the Lions have held a free public practice at Ford Field during the preseason. For the most part, the turnout was the kind of folks who likely never would come to a game. Admission was free and the Lions probably made a few bucks back at the team shop and concession stands.

This season, it's the "Coach's Kickoff" and tickets start at $10. But wait, there's more. After the practice, some shitty country singer you've never heard of is going to yodel for a while. Lucky you!

Calm down you desperate, desperate man. The fact that Fab Five is a ripoff from Fab Four should give you some pause.

Jalen Rose doesn't take a liking to the nickname that he says the "lazy" media gave the U.S. women's gymnastics team.

That would be the "Fab Five" which, as we know, was the nickname given to the five freshmen of the 1991 Michigan basketball team that competed for a national championship in consecutive years.

But it was a nickname also widely used during the London Olympics while the women's gymnasts made their run toward a team gold medal.

“To use the nickname just points and screams of lazy journalism by the national media, that’s really what it is,” Rose told 97.1's Jamie Samuelsen. “It’s no fault at all of the young gymnasts. But I really wish they would have come up with an even more creative tag for them and their gold medal pursuit.”

Rose, covering the Olympics as a commentator for ESPN, was a part of Michigan's 'Fab Five' along with Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson and finished as NCAA Tournament runners-up in 1992 and 1993.

But when U.S. Olympic gymnasts Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross and Aly Raisman came to London as gold-medal favorites, suddenly the 'Fabe Five' nickname appeared again in media coverage.

Rose actually was granted the trademark to the 'Fab Five' last year, according to Businessweek.com. An attorney in Washington said that Rose has an "opportunity" and that he should approach the women's gymnastics team about the use of 'Fab Five.'

Rose says he "loves" the U.S. Olympics team and doesn't believe they're responsible for the nickname.

“Once the media decides what they’re going to call you, that’s your name,” Rose said. “I’ve heard they (gymnasts) wanted to be called ‘Furious Five’ or something different which leads me to believe that’s a tag the media put on them.”

"I think it is an extremely strong statement that a three-judge panel unanimously ruled to lift the suspensions," Saints quarterback Drew Brees told ESPN's Ed Werder. "It makes you feel like they took a very hard look at all the evidence there and saw that we were in the right. ... Today makes you feel like justice has been served."

NEW ORLEANS -- Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed said former NFL linebacker Junior Seau, who police say committed suicide and reportedly had brain damage from repeated concussions, "signed up for it'' when he came into the NFL.

Reed, who has been in the league since 2002, also said Tuesday he already has experienced issues that he believes stem from past concussions.
"I feel effects from it,'' Reed said, speaking during Super Bowl media day. "Some days, I wake up and I'm like, 'Where did my memory go?' But I signed up for it.''

While being asked about the hot topic of concussions, Reed repeatedly said he and other players know football is a violent game and realized the dangers going in.

That prompted a reporter to ask if Seau had signed up for it.

"Did he sign up for it?'' Reed said. "Yeah, he signed up for it.''

Reed then said several more times that all players accept the potential risks before turning back to Seau.

"Junior gave everything he had to football,'' Reed said. "I'm sure he's looking down and has no regrets.''

Someone ought to check his offshore accounts. The NFL may be beginning an offensive to the lawsuits.

WXYT idiots were debating the whole Chris Webber thing the other day. One of them kept on saying the fab five were the first team with swagger... the shorts, the attitude, the nickname etc etc etc. If I had not been driving, I would of called them out and called them stupid. #1. The first team with swagger was Phi Slamma Jamma. They had real swagger and attitude and were known nationally, and they too, lost in the finals. #2. What the dj's were describing as swagger is really just urban playground basketball culture, which arguably, the 82-84 Houston Cougars brought to the fore-front of college basketball.

This is why I hate basketball.....

The whole notion that the possible reunion of 5 kids who never won a championship and brought disgrace and probation to their school gets everyone all giddy because they brought "swagger" and some crazy new fashion 20+ years ago was nearly as big as the story of the kids actually playing...makes me puke.

The focus on style over substance and dissing other players with statement dunks and the hyper focus on personalities of superstars..."Did Kobe come out of the dressing room for Shaq's jersey retirement?" bulllshit makes it little better professional wrestling meets figure skating.

ESPN's Chris Brousard backtracked furiously from his Outside the Lines platitude:

"Personally, I don't believe you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals. If you're openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits. It says that's a sin. And if you're openly living in unrepentant sin ... I believe that's walking in open rebellion to God and Jesus Christ."


ESPN columnist L.Z. Granderson, who's been out pretty much since he started writing for the website and magazine, delivered this zinger:

"Faith, just like love and marriage, is personal. What you're really doing is painting is a world that comfortable for you.


Brousard issued this statement later in the day:

Today on OTL, as part of a larger, wide-ranging discussion on today's news, I offered my personal opinion as it relates to Christianity, a point of view that I have expressed publicly before. I realize that some people disagree with my opinion and I accept and respect that. As has been the case in the past, my beliefs have not and will not impact my ability to report on the NBA. I believe Jason Collins displayed bravery with his announcement today and I have no objection to him or anyone else playing in the NBA.

or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals.


That's the funny part that social media has picked up on. How about railing against the rest of the heterosexual NBA players for being...players?

It's worth something to him to pipe up about homosexuality, but not that?

Real brave. No surprise though. This is a guy who spelled Memphis "Mempis" on a cable TV broadcast.

Indeed. At the very least, Jason Collins will not leave a trail of illegitimate children across the lower 48.

It's hard to know what else to say about Titus Young, the disgraced former Detroit Lions receiver who has taken career flameout -- even for this franchise at that position -- to a new level.

Young's third arrest in less than a week, this time for allegedly breaking into a California home, makes clear that his life has spiraled out of control.

There is no sense debating his future, at least not on a football blog, because his playing career is almost certainly over. And there's no sense criticizing the Lions any further for making Young a second-round draft choice in 2011; they admitted their mistake by releasing him as soon as league rules allowed it this winter.

Really, all you can say or hope is that Young gets himself straightened out, if not for his sake, then for the safety of the people he is encountering in his current state. As for us, how about we move on from further gawking at Young's demise? There's too many other good and interesting stories to draw our attention.

http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/post/_ ... -continues


Do you remember what network giant you work for motherfucker? Do you realize there'd only be ESPNews if we collectively choose not to focus on any downward spiral?

Oh yes, but let's pick and choose what train wrecks at which we shall gawk. Because of some sort of moral line that's crossed? And you're gonna tell us that in the role of an ESPN reporter? Fuck you.
