    Well, if the Reds and Pirates are going to be cellar dwellers, they can at least fight, and put on a good show.

      Sounds like a good one. I’ll have to look that up.

      Fun fact: Clint Hurdle once played for the Reds.

      Haha. I just saw where the Reds manager had already been ejected earlier, and returned to the field during the fight and shoved Hurdle. Someone did a video where they showed him running in, and then showed the Ultimate Warrior doing a run in during a rasslin’ match.

      Last night when I saw the video of the fight on Sportscenter, they were breaking down the punches and showed a Pirate player who had a chance to land a great hay maker and totally whiffed and missed.

      Normally, baseball fights are just a lot of standing around trying to look tough and maybe a shove a guy or two. I hated to see the Reds have a total meltdown, but in this case it was completely justified after Dietrich just barely got his head out of the way of a 97 mph fastball. I only wish Bell had been able to get ahold of Clint Hurdle, if only for a few seconds.

      Dan Lebatard once asked (this is when he was on ESPN radio on Sunday mornings before church time) “Why is it that basketball players get in a fight they always look like they’re swinging a purse?” I think he was specifically talking about a fight Shaq had gotten into a day or 2 prior.

    I was watching some Last Chance U last night, and heard a quote so good I had to write it down to share with you guys. Brown is speechifying at the team about how they should know right from wrong no matter their home life, and he said “I don’t believe that Charles Manson b***s*** that his daddy was a killer so he ate m-er f-ers!” Uh, wut?

    • runningunnin.454

      Manson never knew his father, Colonel Scott, who was from Kentucky. Colonel was his given name, not his rank. His father was a con artist; but, he never killed anyone.

      And Manson had other people do his killing, and didn’t eat his victims. Kind of mixing his metaphorical psychopaths.

      When I was in college, I had Ron Holmes as my professor in a class that discussed a lot of psychology. He had studied and interviewed many notorious serial killers, including Manson, Bundy, Gacy and Dahmer. He said Manson was simply bat-chit crazy. Bundy was pretty creepy because he was so intelligent and diabolical, but could come off as completely normal and friendly.

      Wow, the HOF of serial killers; how could you stand to be around such unadulterated evil.

      Everyone knows Manson is super crazy. Sane, normal people don’t carve swastikas in their foreheads.

    Well, can’t really listen to the show today, and probably wouldn’t be able to hear it over the rumble of all these hotrod engines. Am I missing anything good?

      Nah. Baseball fight and restaurant grades.

    Oregon hasn’t won anything since 1939, the first ncaa tournament. They are obviously fixing recruits up with coeds, or dropping a bag. I’m guessing; but, what else could it be?

      You all may not remember, but their coach (Dana something) had left Creighton for Arkansas, then got cold feet a day or 2 later and went back to Creighton. One writer said he wasn’t that surprised because Dana was embarrassed at having to do the “Woo pig” yell at his introductory presser.

      After that UA hired John Pelphrey. Pel had NO qualms about the yell and said something like “I want everyone to know who’s side I’m on”.

    I don’t eat at any restaurant that has less than an A rating. I also periodically clorox-wipe my remote, so take that Matt!

      MJ’s remote probably has chili and hummus remnants on it; he should at least get a dog so he could put the remote on the floor, and let the dog clean it.
      I know, eewww…I’m JK.

      We don’t wipe things down that religiously, but in a hotel room, you better believe the whole room is Clorox wiped (almost everything but the floor and ceiling…haha). There are just too many stories out there about stuff either 1) not getting cleaned, or 2) getting “cleaned” with the same rag they just wiped down all the bathrooms on the same floor with. *green faced emoji*

    Must be nice for Ryan and Drew to have their careers up in the air waiting for Matt to get his decision made.

    First Drew says “questaraunt” and gets away with it, then they all go on and on answering a question the guy didn’t ask.

      Questaraunt, where you point to your food, and ask the waitress, “What is this”?

      Questaurant – a quest for a restaurant. Like in Harold and Kumar go to White Castle.
