    The Reds need checkerboards!



    • ClutchCargo
      10:07 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Only if checkerboards can pitch.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:18 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Nothing in baseball irritates me more than my team scoring a lot of runs (11 last night) and still losing. smh



    • runningunnin.454

      You wanna face a 90 mph fastball coming out of a checkerboard?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:25 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      90 mph would be a changeup in today’s game. It’s crazy how hard those guys throw now.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:38 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Is it true that a lot of those guys can actually throw harder after Tommy John surgery?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:40 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      It’s often true. But people fail to realize that the additional strength is from the rehab process, not the fact that a ligament has been replaced.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:45 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Yep, that wouldn’t be an elective surgery to enhance performance.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:55 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Well, dang, then my idea of doing the surgery like they do in China to make you taller so my daughter can play volleyball in college is not a good one, huh?



    • runningunnin.454
      11:34 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      That might work, if her eyes woudn’t bother you, ha ha. Well no, I think China has banned that.

    This is some illuminating SEC coverage. Also, I don’t think muting someone’s microphone affects their hearing.

    Did y’all hear that? DAMN IT TO HELL, that is an annoying habit.

      Got me assuming someone on the football team got hurt. He just had to sneak that in. Jerk.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:31 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Lots of possibilities there. Ugh.



    • runningunnin.454

      If we get a wah nee nah nah for an injury, let’s go there and slap them around some.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:34 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Please, for the love of all things holy, no wah-knee-nah-nah.

      Looks like we’re on the same page, rg. 🙂

    Aaaaand here’s Matt with the ol’ “I know something but can’t tell you yet.”



    • runningunnin.454
      10:30 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      And, it’s bad news. Terrific.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:50 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      FWIW, the word on Twitter is Keaton Upshaw.



    • Realme
      10:51 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Well, that’s a shame.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:00 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      That doesn’t make it true. But the person telling it sure had a lot of details about what supposedly happened.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:00 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Well, there goes the 12 personnel scheme.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:02 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      I guess the silver lining is that position is somewhat deep with talent and experience. And it could be an opportunity for Dingle to get in the rotation.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:17 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Do we have anyone with the last name “Berry” who can stand next to Dingle on the sidelines?



    • StillBP
      11:18 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Hey guys. I saw KSR post on facebook that Upshaw had a season-ending injury. It didn’t have details in the post but said to head over to KSR for details…there are no details LOL I checked in on here because I thought yall would have the details. Oh, KSR…



    • StillBP
      11:19 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      and now they post the details. Had to get that traffic from other sites first.

      Matt said he has a torn pectoral muscle. Possibly out for season. Also, hey stranger.



    • StillBP
      11:23 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      I almost started with hey strangers! I’m back in the office now so maybe I’ll be on more 🙂 It’s slow going here. I hope everyone is well.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:23 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      That’s what the guy on Twitter said, torn pec from weight lifting injury.

      Welcome back, BP!



    • StillBP

      thanks Clutch! I’ve missed the banter.

      Hey, it’s a BP sighting! That’s almost as good as seeing Elvis at Seven-Eleven. 🙂 Welcome back!

    They act like Ryan is so stupid, but half of the time, it is Matt that is stupid for acting like things Ryan says are crazy.

    Brian, what are you Brian? Huh?

    This story is terrible.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:44 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      I kinda want to give that other guy a high five.



    • Realme
      10:46 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Hell yes, any person ringing a cowbell in people’s ears deserves to be punched.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:58 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      That reminds me of a true story that happened about 20 years ago when I was at a UK football game with my wife. A college age Miss. St. fan was running around out of control taking swings at people with his cowbell on the concourse, with a Committee of 101 guy chasing him and yelling for somebody to grab him. I was in the right place at the right time to tackle him into a concrete wall. Then a few of us held him down until the cops could get there.



    • Realme
      10:59 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Good work!

      Better story than anything from the callers. Any one of y’all could have won those tickets without being boring.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:00 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      HaHa, I hope you gave him a well placed knee for that hold-down.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:05 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Well, he wasn’t going anywhere or putting up a fight by that point, so it would have been 15 yards for unnecessary roughness.



  8. Realme
    10:49 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

    No. It would not be cool if everyone sang that stupid song.



    • Realme
      10:52 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Barf, speaking of stupid songs. Make it stop.



  9. RealCatsFan
    10:52 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

    Had to take a phone call, and when I get off, I’m listening to bro country. What the hell was that? Whatever happened to real country?

      Luke Combs SEC pump up song. smh



    • runningunnin.454
      10:56 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      It left with real rock.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:58 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Yeah, along with the departure of real blues music. After all, that is the root of rock and roll and old school country.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:11 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Preach! I’m fine with mixing genres of music. But don’t do that and call it country, or rock, or blues.



  10. RealCatsFan
    10:57 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

    Let’s face it, is there actually a more redneck name for a county than Bullitt? Anything that has a name that is synonymous with what we call a projectile that is for killing things should definitely have a very high per-capita populations of pickup trucks with lift kits and dudes names Bubba, Cooter, and Possum. 😉

    They are talking about the Blue Origin launch with Bezos on board. A good friend of mine’s stepson just graduated from Speed Engineering School a couple of years ago and moved to Seattle to work for them. Talk about a plum first job right out of college! So he can brag about being a bona-fide rocket scientist.



  12. RealCatsFan
    11:16 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

    Sorry, but just not a fan of Chris Paul at all. I kind of hope he retires and they get someone else to share the guard duties with Devin.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:21 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      I don’t know, I’m pretty much okay with him. He does seem to have a positive influence on whatever team he joins. I always thought he was overrated in his younger years, when he was considered to be the best PG in the league. That was when Rondo was entering his prime and helping the Celtics win a title. I always liked Rondo better as a pure PG.

    Matt trying to temper preseason expectations? I wonder if he’s sick or something.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:40 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      Yeah, I don’t get it. So basketball hype is fine, but let’s not expect good things for football? Having expectations is what drives improvement.



    • StillBP
      11:41 am July 20, 2021 Permalink

      sounds like maybe he’s finally learned from the past?? nah, probably sick or something like you said!
