Just wanted to let everyone know I still feel healthy, just working a lot. Hozer and I miss doing play by play of Cubs games on here and commenting on the games. Everything will be back to normal soon

As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan.  But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan.  This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV.  Our TV provider had WGN and sin

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.

Yeah that is BAD! You could sue? That is your health that was being messed with!

I saw 3 different lawyers & they all said that because my particular surgery was a success & didn't have a case. I was actually contacted by the state attorney general's office that they were investigating him. (that's how I found out about it initially) I still think they were wrong & I should have been able to seek some kind of compensation. This guy lied to everyone he operated on. He wasn't even a surgeon. Like I said before, there is much more to this story that I wish I could share here but it would take forever & most wouldn't believe it anyway.

Yeah Dylan Covey was crap tonight. 4+ innings of work and allowed 10 hits and 6 runs. Not doing much to win me over

What is the score now?

Yeah, a 19 year old Babe Ruth tonight.

 

I know he is 26 or 27 but he looks much younger. He is a good player. I see why Mets fans wanted him a couple of seasons ago.

What a raw deal. I always wanted to be a Lawyer but never completely pursued it. For what it's worth I would've took your case but now I am living in Fantasy land. Yeah that sucks, you deserved compensation, that is your freakin health being messed with.

I was a "Pre-Law" student but didn't go to law school since I would have had to leave  Princeton to practice Disability Law

Yes. Defensive coordinator for the Arena League Baltimore Brigade. He coached the LA Kiss before that & the Chicago Rush before that.

I remember now.  He will be a head coach soon.

I got my Bachelors Degree from IUPUI and took a some Law classes as well. I always found Business Law fascinating and sympathized with people dealing with injuries due to someone else's negligence.

Now you know why I have such a positive attitude 

 

Reminder

 Everything Will Be Okay

Well PT your a testament to people to have the problems and to have the attitude you have. You make the most and best of what you do have. There are many folks out there that need to learn from you. Not that my respect for you was lacking , but it just went up a lot more my friend.

He would have been the head coach at Baltimore but the league made a new rule this season that any new franchise cannot have a first year head coach. He's back working with the same head coach he worked with for the Kiss

That is what I wanted to write earlier but you put it just right. PT does not make me sad. He brings a smile to my face knowing that he makes the most out of what he has and maintains a positive attitude. PT is a great example for others with similar health issue.

I don't think you ever shared it with me. When you have the time, please share. You never know. He might try to go across the George Washington Bridge to practice in NY.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from USI with enough credits to have a History Minor(My focus was Local and State Government). I was preparing to start a Masters of Education program but couldn't because of my health issues. I wanted to work with Civil Rights/Disability Law

Not only that but for all the selfish people that are not ever satisfied with what they do have.

From what I've been told, he's not even in the country any more. I will share more with you when I can.

    • I certainly understand the Ingram intrigue but I'd have to go with Kerrigan here. His body has a lot more left in the tank than Ingram and his body is as healthy as can be due to Washington's dominant young d-line. Kerrigan could certainly give us 1-2 years of above average play! 
    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
