Jim Irsay Is In The Tank And He Is Going To Take Some People With Him

(WishTV.com)

(WishTV.com)

This Jim Irsay DUI story is about to blow up, and the NFL team doctors better get ready.  I don’t have any facts and this is all based on pure hypothetical insanity on my part, but I would put the chances that Irsay was getting his alleged drug of choice (Pain meds) from the Colts’ team doctor at about 90%.  No matter what comes down from the NFL as a punishment for Irsay I just hope that he is able to get the help he needs.  I mean the man has lost about 70 lbs recently and you’re telling me that it’s because he’s trying to prevent back pain.  Come on!  Jim Irsay is in a full blown battle for his life addiction and he needs some serious help.

Awesome Derrick Coleman Commercial

Though I won’t be cheering for Derrick Coleman today (He’s playing my Saints), I will now always be a fan and will look for him to continue to fight the odds.  Both of maternal grandparents were deaf and spending Louisiana summers with them made some of my greatest childhood memories.  My grandfather wasn’t one to let his disability slow him and he taught me a lot about playing the hand you’ve been dealt to the fullest.

Jumbo’s Hypothetical Baseball Hall of Fame Ballot

Today the BBWAA had to turn in their ballots for the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame inductions.  That means we have until January 8th at 2pm before we find out what absurdly stupid fake moral high ground decisions the BBWAA made.  Last year they didn’t elect one of the deserving men to the HOF.   I am not a member of the BBWAA (Far from it), but if I was my ballot would look just like this. A player must appear on 75% of the ballots to be enshrined, and no more than 10 players can appear on a ballot.

  • bagwellJeff Bagwell (Last Year: 59.6%)  The fact that one of the top 10 1st basemen in the history of the game is still waiting to get in the HOF is a travesty.  The 1994 NL MVP finished his career with 2314 Hits, 449 HRs and 1,529 RBIs, but just because he has muscles the idiots in the BBWAA don’t feel he deserves to be in the HOF.
  • Craig Biggio (68.2%)  Another guy that should already be in is Bagwell’s Astros teammate, Biggio.  One of the top 2nd basemen of all-time, Biggio’s 3,060 hits should put him.  In fact he is the only player in baseball history with at least 3,000 hits, 600 doubles, 400 stolen bases and 250 home runs.  I hope  this is the year that the BBWAA pulls their heads out of the own asses.
  • Barry Bonds (36.2%)  Steroids?  Sure he did.  HGH?  Of course.  Greatest hitter since Ted Williams?  No doubt.
  • Roger Clemens (37.6%)  Same as above but insert “Greatest pitcher since Walter Johnson.
  • Tom Glavine (1st Year)  The 2-time Cy Young Award winner finished his career with 305 wins and was one of the top pitchers in the game for the 90′s.  If he doesn’t get in on the 1st ballot the world might end. Continue reading

Draft Day Trailer

I’m not sure about this one at all, but I am going to give it a chance.  On the surface it has a number of reasons to believe that this will be a great sports movie.  It’s got football, Kevin Costner (Sports Movie Royalty), a Jon Gruden cameo and it’s about the greatest single non-sporting event in sports.  The only thing that could/should bring this movie down is that it’s about the Cleveland Browns, and nothing involved with the Browns has succeeded since 1964 Pre- Super Bowl Era NFL Championship team.

Aaron Rodgers To Start Vs. Bears

191292-330-0The season is on the line and the Packers can’t count on another Jay Cutler collapse to get them to the playoffs. They need their MVP back and he has returned.  Rodgers has told State Farm to put the commercials on hold and he has packed his guitar away.  I feel sorry for the Da’ Bears.

Will we get an epic “I’m Playing” announcement from Romo?
