richard sherman and super bowl 43

tl;dr - i don't know why i ended up writing so much (sorry). basically, when sherman tipped that last ball, did anyone flash back to super bowl 43 and wonder what if ben's pass to santonio was...

the day zambrano pinch hit for tuffy rhodes

was randomly looking up a game tuffy played in 1994. and i happened across this box score from 6jul1994. i was surprised as hell to see "zambrano PH-LF" under tuffy's box score line. i knew it couldn't be carlos because, well for one, carlos must have been like 7 years old back then (actually 13). i didn't remember eddie zambrano. ok. memory lane trip over... i gotta say, though, retrosheet is one of the greatest websites ever. for instance, in that same game, joe girardi was catching for the rockies and came in the 7th as a pinch runner! haha. baseball reference (also a great site) shows that joe was a pinch runner only 13 times in his career! ok. banal trivia done.

will ohman cut from nationals BEFORE game was over

ohman, journeyman lefty reliever who spent 2000-2007 in cubs bullpen, was cut from the nationals... in the SIXTH inning. he had pitched earlier in the game. ugh. from the linked article: "it still seems cruel to cut a guy when he is probably still icing his arm."

bellicheat actually has a simple and good idea for OT

put time on the clock and play. that's actually... freaking brilliant. forget sudden death which doesn't work anymore with kickers able to hit from 45-50 yards. forget this garbage "first FG can't beat payton" rule that was concocted a few years ago. just simply - put some time on the clock and play. long enough that you can't run out the clock on the first possession. i hate bellicheat, but i give him credit on this one.

nfl announces steelers will play one game in london in 2013 vs vikings. it will be an away game for pittsburgh. official nfl link from nflcommunications.com gives the date as sunday sep 29, 2013. this probably assures that we'll have ANOTHER early bye week...

Concussion-related lawsuit mentions Steelers’ Harrison

this is kinda BS for a number of reasons, but according to robinson's article, the lawsuit mentions that deebo is a recidivist violator (repeat offender). part of the reason he's labelled as such is that he has "five illegal hits by Harrison on quarterbacks over three seasons". that's ridiculous because three of those include: - the slam job on titans qb VY which was a three person job, not just deebo - late hit on drew brees in that sun night game which was such a weak call (deebo hit him square in the back when the officials ruled it was a blow to the head) - the ryan fitzpatrick hit where the ref threw the flag EVEN BEFORE contact was made...

Jim Tressel Hired By Colts: will he start his NFL career serving his 5 game suspension?

terrelle pryor starts his NFL career by serving out a 5 game suspension that was handed to him by the NCAA, but is being enforced by the NFL. so obviously, czar goodell, protector of the integrity of the game, will certainly start tressel on a 5 game suspension also... right? right?? wait, you're saying goodell is just making up crap as he goes?!?! what?!?!
