fellers, have been away from the threads and will be gpoing to the holy land for passover sunday night. really like carolina, but wisconsin playing with 4 caucasians and no many tattoos is okay with me. if i dont post for a while, it'll be because of the holiday and the fact i will be away from the sports world half way around the world. shucks, they don't even have armed forces radio to stay tuned to the tournament like they did in the good old days. be blessed friends and happy holiday for whichever one you celebrate!!

boys, charles clay was a sound player for the dolphins, but the money involved to keep him was a little too much i guess. the guy made many clutch plays and these days you've got to search high and low for TEs that block-case in point rob gronkowski.

mr. woodcock, i guess you can blame the jews for aligning with the democrats when harry s (for nothing) truman had the USA be the first country to recognize the state of israel and for the democrats being at the forefront of the civil rights movement amongst the caucasians. it sure wasn't because FDR turned his back on the slaughter of jews in europe or the st. louis boat episode. amongst orthodox jews these days you won't find very many democrats and many many who target barrack obama in their vitriol. my parents, of blessed memory, came over when harry s was prez and while my dad was not a red hot democrat, my mom was and stayed that way. mt father was a big fan of richard nixon, who aside from the watergate disaster, would go down as one of america's great presidents; i was the only student at fairfax high who had a "nixon's the one" bumper sticker on the back fender of my 1967 camaro. have been away for a while, bit free agency talk bores me. suh is the dirtiest player in the league since the vile bill romanowski, and i hope he changes/matures a little because i find it hard to root for despicable people, no matter how great they might be.

how are the eagles gonna play with sam (brittle) bradford at QB? hurt every year and not even close to ever showing star potential!! no matter what chip kelly says, methinks that the eagles are gonna draft marcus marriota for their QB for THIS YEAR!!! http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BradSa00.htm

BYE BYE NICK FOLES!!!! looks like the eagles will trade up to take marcus marriota, making for still another pac-? QB in the NFL. that'll be three on the eagles alone! and how about the ? rams- having to rid themselves of two first picks by waiving jake the turnstile and sam the brittle bradford!! this FA thing is wild!!

FZB, yes the beatles put out great music- but heavily produced and not with the grit of the stones or yardbirds. there is no question that lennon/mccartney wrote beautiful stuff, but i liked the groups that played in front of the people; how's about this for the stones do bo diddley? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB3Z5qJCfDQ

Big Baby, funny you should mention jim morrison and grace slick, as i believe that the doors and airplane were about the only great groups that played concerts that i haven't seen. saw hendix twice- one show lasted 4 hours, the other 4 minutes when our beloved jimi hendrix walked off the stage when someone shouted "foxey/foxy lady" from the audience and he got pissed off and bolted.

Big Baby, i was just a thirteen year old "kid" flipping the dials between LA's powerhouse radio stations when NJPF hit the beach in viet nam.summer of 65 might have been the best musical summer ever, with the summer of 67 and all the great debut albums of the time (doors, airplane, quicksilver,...)just behind.

Mr. Woodcock, yes minnie was a great player; i believe i saw him get a hit against the angels during his tenure in the 70s, first time up i believe. the dodos who vote and don't include richie allen or any of the great players who got to MLB late belittle the hall of fame. listen, paul molitor was a decent player, as was craig biggio but longevity got them in compiling 3,000 hits. if you compile 8 extra games above the previous 154 game schedule, these guys have 100 more games to have produced their numbers. 3,000 hits are plenty, but anyone who says that craig biggio or paul molitor was a better baseball player than richie allen is wacky.

YAY ON CRICKET!!!! the most watched sports in the world- between just india and pakistan you've got a billion and a half viewers. my good friend graham , raised in london, got me interested in the game so that i know what spin vs. pace bowlers are, the "nightwatchman" is, winning on runs versus winning on innings... when the last baseball strike was on, so guys in NYC beeded a baseball "fix", so they went to watch a cricket match which they described as "beisbol on valium". it really is a great sport; try watching the film "fire over babylon" about the west indies vs. england for a great view as to what cricket means to each country. basically none of the cricket powers, save for england, do anything in futbol. a few months ago a batter was killed when the ball struck him under the ear flap after a wicked bounce.

fellers, me thinks the name chargers for the new AFL team in san diego didn't come from USC, but from the dodgers' fans of the newly landed franchise that won the WS in 1959. went to many USC games and never heard a "CHARGE" cheer to the best of my recollection.

Mr. Woodcock, didn't el tigre own torrey pines before his wife took the club to him? stated he'd never win another major after that dispute and all that came with it. the 2008 open play-off with el tigre on one leg against the grind-it-out of rocco mediate was a great sports event, and not just golf. it certainly looks like barring a miracle swing coach el tigre has won his last tournament. the bigger they are,...

A SAD DAY: in my unhumble opinion the greatest college basketball coach excepting john wooden, dean smith, has passed away. had alzheimer's for many years. wooden won with the then alcindor and bill walton for 5 of his titles, and having the best post man in america goes a long way towards winning that plaque. i would say that wooden's wins with hazard/goodrich, then goodrich/erickson then two with wicks and rowe and the last when richard washington nailed a game-winner against kentucky are better testaments to his coaching than the five with kareem and walton. one of the greatest achievements in college basketball was dean smith's UNC teams never finishing worse than second in a very competitive ACC- with NC state, maryland, duke, and even virginia getting ranked #1 at some point but UNC always right behind them on the table. loved his four corners concept. RIP

Mr. Woodcock, granted shula coached many years and amassed victories in the late 80s and early 90s with pedestrian teams, but his early years as the boy wonder coach with the colts and dolphins count for many wins. george halas coached many many teams with mediocre records to get to the 300+ that i believe was the mark that shula broke.

(the real) dave in l.a., unless i misread your post re shula, he didn't win the SB with two different teams, just got there with the colts and dolphins. bot shoes and bellichek are gona be in the discussion of greatest ever coaches. it is hard to argue against the felle r with the most wins, but many came with mediocre dolphins teams in thelate 80s and 90s.

quaker mother, hebe looks!! http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/phenom/201408/josh-rosen-quarterback-jewish-catholic-ucla-st-john-bosco-football the article really talks up this young man, the seeming replacement to bret hundley. with all these QB camps and 7 on 7 leagues, is everybody stacked at QB so that only three of the top 50 recruits are passers?

JOSH ROSEN:ST. JOHN BOSCO??? first, in the days of yore, the catholic league of the CIF used to be all run, no pass- one 12-7 game after another. now they are throwing it all over the place in the last bastion of smashmouth high school football. so much so that a guy with a member of the tribe name (doesn't mean hi is a hebe) goes to a catholic high school to play!! i don't think i saw one recruit from what is now the "los angeles city" section of the CIF (used to be totally independent of the CIF. john elway went to granada hills high in one of the valley leagues of the city, and methinks there hasn't been a better high school>college>pro QB than him in my lifetime.

men, after seeing the play at least 10 times (many in slo-mo), i would have to say that throwing the ball was not as bad a decision as throwing it to mr. lockette, an inexperienced pass catcher who did touch the ball before it was picked and who didn't turn his body to shield the ball from the defender. yes the ball was thrown out in front of him and it would take great judgment and ability to turn on such a quick toss, but if we are gonna analyze, why not do it in microseconds? twas a really good game, really really good game, but the new kids on the block found a way to lose a 10 point lead by not scoring against the same old (not really because they change personnel so often) bullies from the northeast. tom brady would have won with the walsh 49ers throwing left-handed.

boys, i was listening to the radio for the second half but had to jumpout of bed to see the fatal interception. except for a couple of unreal catches by seattle, methinks the NE pass defense was all over seattle. i too cannot understand the play call that led to the INT-who calls the plays-the OC or pete carroll? i am inclined to say the OC with approval from the head coach. remember that pete carrol lost the rose bowl game for the vase by A) not punting on a 4th down near midfield in the last minute of the game, and B) giving the ball to lendale white instead of reggie bush. the texans stopped lendale white and texas marched(?) down half the field for the winning TD behind vince the QB who accounted for all of the +/- 50myards by hisself. passing when one yard is needed? and with marshawn lynch i the backfield? only thing i can say oid that if a run got stuffed, they'd only have had one more play, whereas an incompletion would have given them two more chances. a very bizarre ending indeed

as predicted (thus far): bill bellichek's pass defenses are top notch and to this point seattlecan't do much on offense. still plenty of time left, but the patriots are playing pass defense the was that BB's giants did against the bills.
