Sports Guy Unplugged

sportsguy.blogspot.com — June 14, 2000 - Real-Time Diary of Pedro-Roger III I had been writing "running diaries" ever since the BSG site launched in May of '97; my third column ever was a running diary of the '97 NBA Draft.

Mr. Goodell Goes to Washington

grantland.com — Can we talk about Roger Goodell? Not Goodell's 39 percent approval rating, or his faceoffs with the players' union, the referees' union, reporters, Jerry Jones, or Jonathan Vilma. No, let's talk about Roger Goodell's dad. Senator Charles Goodell, a Republican from New York, was briefly and magnificently a '60s icon.

A Visit to the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention, Part 4

grantland.com — BS: Bear Bryant's game-worn plaid jacket. (Rem - he's the guy who coached Forrest Gump.) RB: Duh, Bill. Because of Bear, Forrest got to meet JFK and then drink 15 free Dr Peppers and then tell JFK he had to pee. LIKE I DON'T KNOW WHO THE REAL BEAR BRYANT IS?

As a fan of a rival AFC East team, I hope the Jets are dumb enough to fire Rex Ryan. He's a good coach.

JJ Watt officially has my MVP vote. He turned Joe Flacco into Joe Happy Feet less than an hour.

I AM STILL NOT TAKING THIS PERSONALLY. RT @espn_macmahon That's three offensive charges drawn for Rajon Rondo in his Dallas debut.

McCoy not calling one of his 2 timeouts after Gore's first and goal run down 14 with 1:15 left was incredible. Are we sure he is awake?

What a reprehensible half by the Chargers. Cross another potential playoff team off. Also, I think Mike McCoy is in a coma.

Breaking: Rondo just took his first charge in 3 years. (I'm not bitter, I swear! I love Rondo! I'm rooting for him!)

I've enjoyed watching Kobe in ESPN Classic mode. It's certainly more compelling than your typical lottery team. But he's not playing well.

Kobe is one of 3 players to average 22 FGA while shooting less than 38%. The others: Joe Fulks & Max Zaslofsky. basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…

Right now, Kobe is the 2nd player to average 24.5 PPG while shooting less than 38%. The other: Joe Fulks... in 1947. basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…
