The Ref

Keep your “Pro vs. Con”. Colbert can have his “Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger”. We’re gonna reward points and penalties to people based on their genius decisions and boneheaded moves.

TOUCHDOWN: UFC Owner (Zuffa LLC)
For buying Pride, the Japanese mixed-martial arts fighting group, and guaranteeing a lot more great rough and tumble fighting. Also, bonus PAT to UFC just for having hottie Chuck Liddell fighting on their cards.

OFFSIDES: San Diego Padres
For dumping hottie Todd Walker, in favor of Marcus Giles- after taking Todd to arbitration and losing (to the tune of $3.95 million). Nice timing- one day before the deadline, but after stringing him along through weeks of spring training.
[Padres decide Walker must go]
TOUCHDOWN: Bruce Pearl
For sticking with Tennessee, and spurning the alluring advances of Iowa. It’s not that UT is “better” (cause I’m not picking Holly vs. Andie), but it’s nice for a coach to come out and put rumors to rest.

OFFSIDES: NCAA
For (allegedly) shortchanging college football and basketball athletes an average of $2,500 a year through their overreaching limitations on scholarship-eligible expenses. Nothing says karma like a class action lawsuit!
[NCAA could take big hit in scholarship anti-trust trial]
TOUCHDOWN: EDSDS Live!
Everyone knows Orson Swindle and Peter Bean are funny dudes in print- but they’re just as entertaining to listen to. Every Tuesday night they go live and talk college football- put it on your calendar and check them out.

About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

  1. Love it!

    But where does Unnecessary Roughness fit in? Perhaps when a particularly good looking dude gets cut and ends up playing in the CFL or something?
