Spooky NFL and College Football Bear vs. Monkey and the Bear weekly Express
Spooky Express Saturday Bear vs. Monkey and the Bear won and other random thoughts......
-- Only in China do they run a bicycle race with a Bear and a monkey and it ends with the Bear eating the monkey. Unbelievable.
-- Texas Rangers drafted Seahawks QB Russell Wilson in Rule 5 minor league draft Thursday; Seahawks can’t be real happy about that. Wonder if they’ll have anything to say if he goes to Rangers’ spring training and puts a uniform on, works out? I wouldn’t want my QB playing another sport.
-- When Arkansas State hires its new football coach, that’ll be five head coaches in five years, not counting interim coaches for the bowl games they’ve been in. If I’m the AD of that school, I’m tempted to put a hefty buy-out in the next coach’s contract, which gets reduced with every year he stays at ASU. Interesting that ASU keeps winning, but the people in Jonesboro can’t be real happy with whats gone on there.
-- Parking for the Super Bowl at Swamp Stadium is $150. Just to park. No tailgating either.
-- I’d be curious to know how Brad Stevens is enjoying coaching the Celtics; is it more/less enjoyable than college, how he feels about dealing with the press, etc. We know the money is better in the NBA and there is very little recruiting (except for during free agency, but the GM probably does more of that). No way of finding out, but would be interesting to know.
-- Very unusual that Kansas Jayhawks are going 28 days without a home basketball game; you think Duke would ever do that? Jayhawks challenge themselves on road, which is why they get better late in seasons. Not lot of bigtime teams go four weeks without a home game.
-- NHL has surprising amount of stuff that is better than other sports: the best playoffs, by far, the best instant replay system, and the shootout is a surprisingly fun way to eliminate tie games. Wish they’d eliminate fighting, but guess that ain’t gonna happen.
-- Wind chill in Green Bay Wednesday morning was around 40 below; I know the weather in New York and New Jersey can get dicey, but its seldom that bad. Why the hell does anyone live there? I guess that is why I moved to Florida.
This will be the last weekend of posts until bowl season starts next week as I am heading out to pick up my son at college this week. Have a great weekend and hope everyone will take the time to stop by Spooky Express website for our daily previews along with sending over everyone here to the BangtheBook forum. BangtheBook is the home to the Spooky Express and we hope to see a lot more posters in the upcoming year.
Please check out our thread here at BangtheBook where all our selections, analysis and thoughts will be posted.
