What a brutal and tough way to lose on the A's last night. A matter of inches or we cash that along with the NFL pick. But we continue to roll on. Here are a couple of plays for later and may come back with another.
Wednesday's Dirty Dozen: In a perfect world, where I make all the decisions......
12) The Electoral College would go away; the candidate with the most votes would become President. To me, the Electoral College makes zero sense.
11) Baseball is a better game without the DH, no matter what the Players’ Association thinks. And I root for an American League team.
10) Instead of or in addition to ESPN showing high school games, how about some junior college games? Would’ve been interesting to see Cam Newton playing for Blinn JC two years ago.
In some parts of the country, junior college football is really good.
9) High school basketball players should be able to jump right to the NBA. Don’t think the one-and-done thing is helping anyone.
8) NHL should have a presence on ESPN; it just makes sense for them and for ESPN. Hockey is a great game and it deserves the exposure.
7) Drinking age should be lowered to 18; if you’re old enough to go to war, you’re old enough to have a beer.
6) Terrelle Pryor, Tim Tebow and Cam Newton should all play Arenaball next spring. AFL emphasizes accurate passing and quick decision-making; it’s a terrific place to develop QB’s.
5) No college conferences should have more than 12 teams.
4) Major league baseball should have a payroll floor of $70M and a cap of $140M; if you can’t afford $70M, sell the team. In reality, the actual payroll cap would be tied to a percentage of revenues, but how much better would the sport be if everyone had a chance to win, like in NFL?
3) NFL pregame shows should pick games against the spread. To this day, the most interesting part of any NFL pregame show ever was when Jimmy the Greek picked games. If you’re going to promote fantasy football, why not gambling too?
2) Once a quarterback passed the line of scrimmage with the ball in his hands, he’d no longer be protected, he’d be just another guy who can get hit. If a QB wants to be protected, he has to stay behind the line.
1) Why do NFL teams have their own stadiums? Isn’t this a waste? They play ten home games a year, counting exhibitions; what do they do with them the other 355 days of the year?
