Thought #1 – ESPN is officially starting their “30 for 30” series tonight with a film on Wayne Gretzky’s exit from the Edmonton. Now granted outside of the month after each Mighty Ducks movie came out, I’ve never really paid attention to hockey. You remember those days, we all bought roller blades and plastic street pucks. You probably even bragged to your fprostarsriends that you could shoot a knuckle puck, and talked about dekeing (sp?)like you had a clue what the heck it meant. (Lord knows I did.) But the bottom line is that despite never watching a hockey game, we all loved Wayne, he was our token hockey star, and we ever hung up that mini poster we bought at the book fair to prove it. I can’t tell you many stats on the great, but I can tell you his most impressive feat to me, being a Pro Star. When he joined forces with Bo Jackson and Michael Jordan to fight crime, that was magic. Least we forget, he also had rocket powered roller blades. Awesome! He truly was the great one.

Thought #2- Is Bobby Bowden going to retire? I doubt it. I think he’s actually passed that “enjoy a nice retirement” age, where you leave your job, buy a boat, and start taking in the early bird T-Bone for half price. No, he passed that long ago and entered the “going work till you die one day on the job” age bracket. I mean if Bobby retires, what’s he going to do? Fish? Golf? Walk circles around the mall in matching FSU windsuits with his wife? Yeah, no way, not Bobby. Guys like him and Jo Pa, the day they walk away from coaching, they just keep on walking up towards Heaven. So FSU fan, you better just suck it up, cause I don’t think Bobby is ready for heaven just yet and you darn sure ain’t going to fire him.

Thought #3-The SEC has officially apologized for the excessive celebration penalties in the LSU-GA game on Saturday. I’ll be honest, until today I thought I was just missing the highlight of the penalty itself. I mean I kept watching and watching and I saw a guy jump, and I saw a guy hug another guy, and I really thought I was just catching the wrong clips. Am I wrong or didn’t we go through this same mess last year in the Pac 10? Why do we care if people celebrate anyway? So what, a guy scores and gets excited, maybe even pumps his fist or does a little dance, so what? I mean obviously we kind of like it, if it’s a good dance we’ll surly talk about on the ride home and then of course we will try to mimic it at Thanksgiving when we score on our 12 year old cousins.  It’s stupid to change a game over something like this, but thanks for the thought SEC. Thanks for the nice note and stuffed mini bulldog you sent. Season’s kinda screwed, but all better now.

Thoughts about last night:

Brett Farve is still Bret Farve, at least for the first part of the year. Let’s not forget he did this last year too. He had an amazing week 4 last year, 6 touchdowns in fact, but he’s body just couldn’t hang in there for the long run. At least Berrian is healthy again, the deep ball threat should be a help for Brett, although could it get the best of him? Hmm.

Rogers is a very good quarterback but it’s hard to play on your butt. Seriously Green Bay line, I know you’re banged up, but 8 sacks is ridiculous.

And by the way, Jarad Allen got 4.5 of those on his own. That’s one dude Packers. One dude who you knew was going to tear it up going into that game and you let him run wild. Granted, he has a mullet, and those are intimidating, so I can’t blame you but so much.

Update: The Bo Jackson Nike cross trainers have been nominated by James for best shoe. Good call on those, I really miss all that “Bo knows” stuff, and the K-mart knock off “Moe knows” with pictures of Moe from the 3 stooges.

  1. Dude the Green Bay O-Line is horrible. Like you said you knew Allen was going to be a threat but you didn’t even double team him. Go Farve.

    For the shoes…do you remember the Vince Carter shoe commercial for the Nike Shox shoes? Boing Boing Boing. Man I think everyone wanted them hoping they would make that sound, but looking back that sounds like the worst reason ever to buy a shoe.
