These are the topics that shape the sports world today.

I had meant to comment on the passing of ABC's Jim McKay for awhile now. I know if I"d have been McKay, I would've requested that my funeral take place in Obesrtdorf, Germany. I would then have instructed my family to dress me up in a ski costume and send me flying down a ski jumping ramp, reenacting the Agony of Defeat highlight that I had become so famous for narrating. I mean how spectacular would that have been?

I'm guessing, though, that I'm a bit more non-traditional than the average person.


I know many find Ozzie Guillen obnoxious, but I think the guy is the funniest manager since Casey Stengel. Here is his latest gem on Wrigley Field.

It smells better. I'm happy. Look at the field now: it's nice. But, hey, you have to do what you have to do. Wake up in the morning and go to Wrigley Field is not a good thing. You are going to take batting practice (in the indoor cages) and the rats look bigger than a pig out there. You want to take a look? I think the rats out there are lifting weights.


Interesting story about Giants rookie outfielder, Brian Horowitz. His teammates have nicknamed hm the Rabbi. While one might ask why even make anything of his religious affiliation, I think it shows how far the game has come. Just consider the best nickname opponents had for Hank Greenberg. Big Jew Bastard.

Scott, by now you've probably heard the news. I wanted to share on this blog how saddened I am that one of the immortal names of comedy, George Carlin, died today. He was 71. Scott, I know he was on your shortlist of great comics.

My thoughts and prayers go out to my former classmate, Kelly Carlin, and to the entire Carlin family.

Growing up in the 70s, my parents had two comedy albums (given as gifts...that they never listened to). Class Clown was one of them (Los Cochinos was the other). I still have Class Clown on vinyl, but it's been a long time. The Carlin on Campus tour was the first comedy show I ever saw, back in 1984 at the Merrillville Holiday Star Theatre. I collected many of his albums when I was a kid, and we used to do his bits in speech class. My final one year was Icebox Man. Some of his bits still work themselves into everyday life (e.g., pinball is a sport b/c it has a ball).
