Just read that the NCAA has added 2 MORE bowl games pushing the total to 35 for at least the next 4 years. Whew! Good thing. I was worried because we desperately need more ways to get 6 & 6 teams into the post season. Personally I just cant' get enough of the New Orleans, Poulan Weed Eater, Goodyear, St. Petersburg, Midas or Bell Helicopter bowls. I won't rest until we have the Cereal and Cheech & Chong Bowls in the mix. Seriously, we now have the Pinstripe Bowl to be played at Yankee Stadium pitting the #3 team from the Big East versus the Big 12 #6. Throw in the Dallas Football Classic at the Cotton Bowl. Who could possibly not be riveted by a matchup of the 6th place team from the Big 10 and 7th place team from the Big 12?
Had a ball doing yesterday's show from the new Doc's Pad downtown, talking NFL draft with Justin and all of you. Anyone think it was odd Denver picked Tim Tebow so high? Obviously if you're talking character, he's already a Hall of Famer, but I can't imagine he wasn't going to be available with their next selection, the 13th pick of the 2nd round, a mere 20 picks after they chose wide out Demaryius Thomas from Georgia Tech. I know we have our share of Seahawk fans and from my chair, they hit a couple of homers with both of their 1st round picks. The rebuilding of their faulty offensive line takes a huge step forward with Russel Okung of Oklahoma State at six, then an elite safety with Earl Thomas of Texas.
Today we'll talk more draft along with lot's of NFL & NBA playoffs(PLAYOFFS?) plus MLB and our usual digressions. Enjoy the weekend.
