Man was an athlete, thats for sure. A lot like Nate Robinson, Spud Webb wasnt built quite like those two.

Wonder if he may have had a better professional career if hed been a football player, like a change of pace back and punt returner type in the Darren Sproles mode. Certainly did himself no favors by publicly beating his ex-girlfriend.

if you look closely at his very last dunk on the vid - his head is up very close to the level of the rim

he's more than 4 feet in the air - actually about 54 inches straight up

If something happens at an Angels game, does anyone care? If Ohtani played for the Dodgers or in NY, he'd be THE Story.
The mayor of Anaheim was just convicted of bribery in the sale of Angel Stadium and it was page nine news.

Yes, he would be a much bigger star in LA or NY. Next year he will be q free agent and some estimates say he may get $700 million. Seems a little high for his age.

Ohtani who? Julio Rodríguez has 17 hits over the last 4 games. First player in MLB history to do so. I think second to have 4 consecutive games with 4 hits. And 5 stolen bases never done with that many hits.

How about this guess. Ohtani 9 years, 500 million $. To the Yankees.

I think it would be crazy to give him 9 years guaranteed at his age. I also think someone will.

I think he gets $600 million, not sure about the length, and am pretty sure it won't be the Yankees. I hope it is, but he's rejected the Yankees twice already. He wanted to sign with them out of high school, but then decided he needed a few years to mature. Then he wanted to play on the west coast so he could fly home to visit Mommy a few times a year. I'm thinking he signs in Seattle and almost instantly regrets it.

I golfed today. Played great (for me). Nearly had hole in one. Missed by a foot. Hit a bunch of long putts. Came out to a 39 on the back nine. Of course its a MUCH easier course than the pros would ever play.

Victor Hovland had a 28 on the back nine to win the tournament today. He had EIGHT 3s over those 9 holes. There were 6 par 4s. He birdied all 6. None were reachable in one shot.

Maybe the best 9 hole stretch in golf history considering it was an important playoff event.

Preseason football is an abomination.

Those clips are a decade old. Carr played pro ball on several levels and his career was unspectacular. He was arrested for domestic battery or something and it caused his star to fall quite a bit.

for a very long time, and not all that long ago, Wilt was the NBA's only 7 footer - until Kareem showed up
now, partly due to international players being in the mix there are - believe it or not - 23 seven footers
I didn't actually count them but that's what my google search revealed
Tacko Fall is the tallest at 7'6"
I wonder if and when an 8 footer will join the NBA

It's funny because the thought was that the three-point shot would change the game away from dominating big men and allow more normal sized people to prosper.
I played high school ball for a successful coach in the NYC BBall HOF. He had a standing rule. If you take a shot from more than 15 feet away, you'd better make it, or the whole team ran laps. Back then, if you were 6'7" and could hit from 12-15 feet out, that was enough to get you a free ride at a good school.

The Harlem Globetrotters were so very popular and successful largely because the NBA had no black players until 1950

after that, for a long time, their numbers were tightly limited by GMs whose policies re this were never reported in the press

the pic below is of the 1958 St. Louis Hawks

the Trotters had some truly great players - still - they were often put down as being "just clowns"

they got some of the respect they deserved when they defeated the World Champion Minneapolis Lakers with George Mikan in 1949 in some kind of tournament

I will watch it. If not live, I will have it recorded. Vanderbilts size should dominate the Hawaii defense if they keep it on the ground. Hawaii generally sucks away from home but who knows, maybe they will win as a 17 point underdog.

Ernie D was fun to watch - the little dude had all kinds of skills

he really had only one very good NBA year - his rookie year - after that it was downhill - not sure why

in '76/'77 Ernie shot an amazing 94.5% from the free throw line
right now Steph Curry is tops shooting just under 91% from the line
Jose Calderon, who I never heard of until looking this up shot an incredible 98.1% from the line in '08/'09

Ernie suffered a bad knee injury, had a botched operation, and never fully recovered. There were also rumors of Bolivian Marching Powder.

Ohtani might need a SECOND Tommy John surgery. If so no pitching NEXT year and future VERY MUCH in doubt. I dont see how a team can offer 1/2 BILLION guaranteed? Injury certainly cost him hundreds of millions. Exact amount to be determined.

Per IMDB : The Featherweight - premiers in early Sept 2023
Set in 1964, a camera crew follows Willie Pep, retired featherweight boxing champion. Down and out in Hartford CT, married to a woman half his age and with a drug-addled son and mounting debts, Pep decides to make a return to the ring.
Started going to live boxing during Pep's comeback - hope they do this one right.

A few years back there was some ground work being done on a film about Carmen Basilio. Some of the guys from the old neighborhood were getting interviewed, asked about the long gone Main Street gym, the sparring partners he trained with, boxers he mentored, etc. Nothing seem to come about with this film - maybe the Pep film will jumpstart it once again.
I 'm gonna go get the papers, get the papers.

No expert here. But I think hed be ready for spring training to be a DH if he had the surgery soon. I saw an interesting talk show take on his next contract. Some low amount ($25 million a year?) guaranteed for lets say 7 years but Ohtani can opt out after two years if he returns to pitching. Sounds fair to both Ohtani and team that signs him.

Vanderbilt vs Hawaii game delayed due to lightning so I am watching Ohio vs San Diego St now. Notre Dame game was a yawner with Navy only completing three passes for the game. the only excitement for Navy was with 3:33 left in the fourth quarter Warren splits the uprights from 31 yards to get Navy on the scoreboard.

Yep, and his offensive line was in civies sitting on the bench. OTH, Bryce Young playing with his first team OL was 7 for 12 with 1 TD and 73 yds. Anthony Richardson was 6 for 17 and 78 yds, 5 rushes for 38 yds and a fumble playing with his first team. All in all not earth shattering. Go DAWGS!

Stetson Bennett was the lowest-graded quarterback in the NFL this preseason, earning an overall mark of 29.5. The next-closest quarterback who had at least 19 drop-backs was P.J. Walker, who had a grade of 41.2 this preseason and has already been cut by the Bears.

So, even though one may make a case that other high draft pick quarterbacks didn't do that great, Bennett did have the worst QB rating in the NFL in the preseason. And the QB with the best rating in the NFL preseason was one of Bennett's teammates on the Rams -presumably that QB played with the same O-Line as Bennett.

the dominance of college basketball by UCLA under Coach John Wooden (the Wizard of Westwood) is almost beyond belief

no team other than UCLA has ever won more than 2 National Championships in a row

Wooden won 10 out of 12 National Championships during the years he was Coach and an incredible 7 times in a row

in addition to winning an astonishing 88 games in a row and having 3 undefeated seasons

there are currently 358 Division 1 NCAAB teams eligible to compete for a National Championship

John Robert Wooden (October 14, 1910 June 4, 2010) was an American basketball coach and player.

he lived to be 100 years old - may he r.i.p.

The ironic part was that he was going to accept the head coaching job at Minnesota but weather caused the phone lines to be out so the offer never came and he accepted his backup position at UCLA because he thought Minnesota was no longer interested.

I hadn't read that.
As a teenager, one of my many aspirations was to coach at a high level. While I never managed to coach beyond the CYO level, I was responsible for establishing an open basketball night that is still going strong thirty-two years after its launch.
Wooden was a class act that is sorely missed in today's basketball.
Early in his career, Wooden lost a game when one of his players tripped over his shoelaces. Coach Wooden then searched out the absolute best way to tie your sneakers and each year, before anyone could go on his practice court, he had to learn the technique and show they had perfected it. Imagine recruiting Lew Acindor or Bill Walton and making them learn your way of tying your shoes.
While Coach obviously wanted to win, he recognized he was also tasked with guiding the players entrusted to him from boys to men.

Stetson Bennett was the lowest-graded quarterback in the NFL this preseason, earning an overall mark of 29.5. The next-closest quarterback who had at least 19 drop-backs was P.J. Walker, who had a grade of 41.2 this preseason and has already been cut by the Bears.

So, even though one may make a case that other high draft pick quarterbacks didn't do that great, Bennett did have the worst QB rating in the NFL in the preseason. And the QB with the best rating in the NFL preseason was one of Bennett's teammates on the Rams -presumably that QB played with the same O-Line as Bennett.

Really? Who was that? Rypian? He was waived. Can you give us the rating after one week, the first week? Or the second week? 15/24 142 yds; 1 pic and 1 TD rushing. and he played for three quarters. The big name first rounders hardly made a dent on offense.

Apparently Biff Pogggi the head football coach at University of North Carolina Charlotte is the wealthiest football coach. We have all heard of Bill Bellichek and Nick Saban who each make over $10 million a year and Biff Poggi only makes $500K. Yet, Bill Poggi is worth over $1 Billion but his passion is coaching football.

I had never heard of him until today.

Great triple overtime thriller in that Wyoming game. Both teams scored a TD in all three overtime periods with Wyoming converting a two point conversion to win on the last play.

Colorado vs TCU: great game; could not help cheering for Prime. He is the real deal, IMO.

I was rooting for them too. Of course, I always root for underdogs but especially 21 point underdogs. His son had an incredible game.

I was rooting for LSU but after getting first down on the Florida State 1 yard line and passing the ball three times and failing to score I now have to root for FSU, Terrible play calling, they don't deserve to win.

Joshua Dobbs, the Cardinals starting QB was really terrible
a couple of fumbles and no TDs
just 132 yards in the air
they still only lost by 4 thanks to their defense - they were 7 point dogs
the Commanders and their fans looked really pumped up by the win but they shouldn't be
they beat a really bad team

Josh has not looked good since his last year at Tennessee.
