    If Oakland picks #1

    1. OAK- Cooper- WR- Alabama
    2. TAMPA BAY- Mariota- QB- Oregon

    Wouldn't be surprised to see OAK take OL. Tampa could like Winston over Mariota. I don't.

    Very limited pool of refs for football. Most come from the Rochester area (Section V) and most have been doing it for years.
    Basketball refs are generally the same guys who were doing it 25 years ago. Some younger guys (not many) have starting over the last 10 years or so. There are some really strong refs who are in demand.
    I give all refs great respect. I don't always agree with the calls, but I respect their role and authority. Too often coaches forget the passion the refs have for their sport. They enjoy the game as much as the coaches, IMO.
    So, to answer your question, yes. Lots of grey hair and it is not just mine!!!!

    IT,

    I will be happy to comment on the Sports Blog tomorrow on WSB.
    Link will be included.

    Enjoy the NFL games today.

    Some very good college football yesterday. How fun if they were involved in a playoff format like Divisions 1AA, II, and III.
    I can dream, can't I?

    Have a great day.

    Unbelievable...to think that the coach is back at it...not much of a lesson being taught there

    I warned my basketball team years ago that if anything breaks out on the court that I was coming after them to get them to the bench.
    Being 6'2" 230 lbs helped send that message.

    Never had an incident on the court or field, thankfully.
    I did have a parent threaten me about 20 years ago. I smiled at him and asked him to really think about what he was saying. He apologized before the next game. Haha.

    This kid doesn't get it.
    Lots of professionals do.
    Cleveland in a tough spot.

    Just read that Manziel was fined for showing up late to work.
    Cleveland has the opportunity to show this kid what life is like in the real world when you don't prepare for your job then show up late for work.
    Donald Trump is available to say:
    You're Fired!

    Learning to walk the line, just like Johnny Cash.

    Johnny Football is and always will be Johnny Unitas. High-top black football shoes and a gun-slinger approach.

    Problems in Cleveland with first round draft choices. I like their coach, but management must help build a roster. Gordon suspended for final game. Manziel hurt and not prepared. Tough sledding for the coaching staff.

    If only there were a few Romans left to tell their tale.
    Historical lessons all around us to learn from.

    It certainly is a fine line to try to walk...focus on preparation with practice and scouting...much like stock market...research rules the day

    There is enough "talking" between players in all sports that largely goes unnoticed. Constant chatter on the court and on the field. This is unacceptable at our HS and players have been removed from the game immediately when it is detected. Sadly, many HS kids take their cues from the pros.

    I enjoy history. So much to learned from what has happened. Applies to stock market too, IMO.

    Some have mastered the art of using the media to fluster opponents. The Detroit Pistons did this years ago. Get opponents to focus on things other than the game and you have "one upped" your opponent.
    Sometimes the media will bite you in the rear end, from what I have seen.

    Greg Popovich from San Antonio is a master of the media, IMO. Very smart guy who gives just enough and often throws questions back at media who are not very skilled in questioning skills.

    I've been out of touch with the sports world the last few days. Some decent NFL games this weekend. Bowl games continue today.

    NFL MVP? Any votes? I am leaning toward Rodgers. Romo can't be counted out and that hurts being an Eagles fan.

    Bills represented well on DL for Pro Bowl, if that makes any difference.

    Cleveland's two first round picks give them absolutely nothing this year. Time to look at the Scouting Department, IMO, and get a rationale for drafting two kids who don't contribute in year 1.

    Watched ESPN's 30 for 30 "Bad Boys" last night. Story of the Detroit Pistons and the years they were one of the top teams in the NBA. Great insight to their players and approach to the game. Coach Chuck Daily grew up in Kane, PA which is about an hour south of me. They have "Home of Chuck Daily" signs as you enter town, which is pretty neat for such a small community.

    Have a great day everyone. Enjoy what ever you choose to do.
