Draft coverage tonight!

Thursday, Apr, 25 2013

Catch draft coverage on WHBY tonight as the NFL's meat market begins!  It would be an extremely dangerous drinking game if you had ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and how many times he says " this guy has a tremendous upside"  or " he's got a big-time motor" or "can he bring his college game into the pros"?!   The one thing that is universal is that you just don't know how good these guys are going to be until you bring them in and let them start bangin' around!  Packers pick late in round one unless they trade up--we'll talk about it tomorrow on the show!

NFL schedule coming soon

Wednesday, Apr, 17 2013

Thursday night, the NFL finally releases the schedule for the 2013 season. We'll talk about it Friday morning on the show.  We know the home games will feature the NFC North teams, plus Washington, Philly, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Atlanta.  Away, its the North teams, plus the NY Giants, Dallas, Cincy, Baltimore and San Fran.
Care to guess on the Packers opener?  I'm going to say it will be RG3 trying to rehab his knee in time for a late Sunday afternoon game for the Redskins at Lambeau against the Pack!  We'll find out Thursday night!

Gun control measures

Tuesday, Apr, 9 2013

It looks like most of the gun control momentum that arose following the tragedy at Sandy Hook in Newtown has diminished greatly.  Though no one measure can prevent a repeat of that horrible day, making any strides towards keeping weapons out of the hands of dangerous people is at least a step in the right direction. The universal background check measure may pass, but outlawing assault-type weapons and limiting the size of clips looks certain to fail. Too bad. 

I have no issue with law-abiding citizens owning a weapon.  But, I fail to see the need for anyone outside of our military to possess an assault-style rifle that can shoot 20, 30 or more bullets from one magazine.

It's fairly clear that many legislators on the Hill have realized just how many campaign dollars they will lose if they support any further gun control.  Even as the majority of their constituents want this legislation to become law.  Too bad.

Kevin Ware's injury

Wednesday, Apr, 3 2013

We all cringed when we saw Kevin Ware's horrific injury during the Louisville-Duke game on the weekend.  Good to hear that the surgery went well and he's already up and walking with the aid of crutches. Ware's directive to his team came through---the guys went out and won it in the second half, and the Final Four looms this weekend.

I will never forget how I felt when I had major knee surgery when I was 16. I had ripped up my knee playing basketball, and the surgery was to repair the torn cartilage--big, ugly 10-inch cut!  Yes, before the days of arthroscopic surgery!!  The truly memorable moment was post-surgery when the PT person came in and said that it was time to get up and work the new knee!  That first time that you elevate and the blood rushes to the knee is a pain you will never, ever forget!  I mentioned on the air Tuesday that it's like your grandmother jamming her crochet needles into your knee!! Yikes!

Catch the NCAA championship game Monday night the 8th on WHBY.

NCAA Hoops thoughts

Monday, Mar, 25 2013

Quick thoughts on NCAA hoops:

Sorry to see the Green Bay women bounced in round one to LSU, on their home court.  The NCAA's handling of home court  advantage in women's basketball is atrocious.  It's all about ticket sales...the big just keep getting bigger.

Speaking of Bigs, the GB women were really weak in the post last night.  Too many outside shots will catch up with you.

On the Men's side, wow, this could get crazy.  From Florida Gulf Coast, the first #15 seed to make the Sweet Sixteen, to a #13 seed, Lasalle.  Three of the four #1 seeds are still alive.  I lost my bracket favorite, Georgetown, right out of the gates!  Louisville, Kansas, Miami and Ohio State are my picks now--good luck!
