Remember that last couple of weeks leading up to Christmas morning?  School was out and all there was to do was wait and attempt to not piss off your parents and ruin any last-minute gifts.  Well, that’s how I feel right now. Baseball is dead for much of us (other than attempting to hold onto my first outright fantasy baseball title) and the football talk, real football talk is really ramping up.  Hell, I got excited the other day at the grocery when the expiration date on my gallon of milk was September 3rd.  Best part, the wait is almost over and real games start in just a few days.

As I was preparing to pick my teams for my annual college football pool I was able to separate many of the pretenders and contenders relatively quick but new questions that we just don’t have the answers to kept coming up.

How long will it take new coaches to take hold?

Unknown-155Out of all the coaching changes two really jump out, Mark Richt at Miami and Justin Fuente at Virgina Tech.  Both coaches take over huge programs that have been in decline and attempt to breath new life into each.  If I had to take a guess Richt will have the Hurricanes back on top faster than Fuente will but will it happen this year?

Will the Baylor offense suffer without Art Briles?

images-69Yes, Baylor is cementing itself as the most corrupt athletic program in the country.  Louisville and Penn State keep trying to take the title but Baylor keeps upping their game.  Yes, this corruption has cost the football team its head coach and leader.  And yes, they have lost a few players and recruits because of it but what do they still have?  They still have the rest of the coaching staff intact including Art’s son running the offense.  They still have a QB and 5 other returning starters that know how to put points on the board.  The wild card though is Jim Grobe.  Will he be able to keep this rudderless boat going in the right direction?  When things get tight will Grobe become take over and become more conservative than in the past?  I am betting on the Baylor O to take a step back and not lead the nation in scoring again this year.

Will Notre Dame be able to take advantage of a very favorable schedule?


The Irish should be favored in every game they play this year.  They get Michigan St., Stanford and the above mentioned Miami and Virginia Tech at home this year.  There toughest game of the year looks to be their final game of the year when they have to make that cross-country trek to rival USC.  So why wouldn’t they?  Because something always seems to go wrong like maybe players rolling dirty, packing heat and well fighting cops to name a couple.  Well if nothing else Brian Kelly didn’t send any mixed messages but kicking off a Senior starter and punishing the other five players.  It might be the rally point this years team needs.

SirusXM Song of the Day

Posted: July 22, 2016 by jmklee in Uncategorized

cashChannel:  59 Willie’s Roadhouse

Artist :  Johnny Cash

Song:   (Ghost) Riders In The Sky

Written By:  Stan Jones (1948)

Johnny Cash made a recording of the song in 1979 for his album, Silver, and peaked at No.2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. Johnny Cash also performs the song in his guest appearance on The Muppet Show in 1980.  Riders In The Sky has been covered countless times over the years and in many circles is thought of as the best written Western song of all time.  Johnny does it justice.

2016-07-20_ACS_Dykstra-650x300When it comes to getting celebrities and athletes to open up during interviews I don’t think there are two better interviewers than Adam Corolla and Howard Stern.  Today the Ace Man had on former baseball All-Star Lenny Dykstra who was promoting his new book and it was podcast gold.  If you are a baseball nerd of the 80’s and 90’s like I am you need to take a listen.

Dykstra doesn’t shy away from his checkered past during the interview as he touched on subjects like his time in prison and his performing enhancing drug use.  Hell, Lenny even talks about who has the biggest cock in baseball.  Trust me, it is one of the funniest interviews I have heard in a long time and my co-workers were staring at me as I was laughing out loud at my desk today.

SiriusXM Song of the Day

Posted: July 19, 2016 by jmklee in Uncategorized

Everyday I leave work on the north side of Indianapolis and fight my way through the sea of stupid commuters on my way back to God’s country on the south side of town.  The only thing that keeps me from loosing my mind and ramming into the other cars is flipping though my SiriusXM radio.  I start at the begging of the dial and wander though the channels and just see want comes my way.

I always seem to find a song that is my favorite of the drive.  Somedays it is a guilty pleasure or a song of my childhood.  Some days it is a classic from the 60’s or 70’s but there is always one and today was no different.

Today’s song of the commute was one that I rarely hear but thoroughly enjoy.

Channel 58  –  Prime Country

Dwight Yoakam – Guitars, Cadillacs

Who Wore It Better? Butthead or Pitino?

In a bold move Ricky P showed up to the Peach Jam rocking the black shoes with white socks.  It was very Butthead of him.

So you decide.  Who wore it better?

WTF moment of the day! #SEC #RollTide

Posted: June 21, 2016 by jmklee in Uncategorized


When you think of SEC football what do you think of?  The answer mostly depends where you live.  South of the Mason Dixon you will be mostly get the answer of excellence, the best of the best, greatest show on turf.  Here in BIG10 country the answer tends to be the following.  Thug ass cheaters.

With that I give you this story.

imagesAlabama left tackle Cam Robinson and safety Laurence “Hootie” Jones will not be prosecuted , according to a filing from the Ouachita Parish (Louisiana) district attorney’s office.

The filing cites insufficient evidence, for Robinson, on charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and illegal possession of a stolen firearm and, for Jones, possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Both were arrested in their hometown of Monroe, Louisiana.

I guess being caught sitting in a car smoking marijuana with a bag of more weed and a gun in plain sight along with a stolen handgun under the passenger seat is not sufficient evidence anymore?  All happening according to the police report.

So why were these Bama players given a pass?  Because the DA of Ouachita Parish (Louisiana) is obviously a football fan.  Here is what he had to say about the case.

“I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I’m doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning,”

Hey asshat, just do your job.  It is not you that will be ruining the lives of two young men it was they who chose to make those bad decisions leading to their arrest.  Did you ever think that maybe letting these guys off will lead to more crime?  Violent crime?

Once again, the SEC wants to know why they have an integrity problem.
