Excellence in Sports Redundancy Excellence

slow day in sports? it was a slow day for the Murphy household...

I saw about a half dozen tv sports guys show Thad Matta spit out his gum accidentally and then pick it up and put it back in his mouth. I was home with a sick kid and a beautiful wife...and a couple of cute kids, for a big chunk of the day and couldn't believe how much they repeat stories from one espn show to the next. It's basically the same stuff with different guys (mostly) saying it.

They dissected the gum incident like it was the Zapruder film. I kept expecting Kevin Costner to come out and show the trajectory of the flight of Wrigleys and throw out a couple of opinions as to why he had to put it back in his mouth.

One of my arguments against early retirement is how much money can you really spend traveling the world before you run out, and then...how much tv and laying around the house could you handle?

  1. The only thing worse than Talk radio is talk TV. The only thing worse than Talk TV is Sports Talk TV. The only thing worse than Sports Talk TV. Seriously, unless you are a bookie or something what's the point?
    By the way, did Ohio State beat Wisconsin? A simple yes or no will suffice. I don't need to know the percentage of differentiation between offensive rebounds as opposed to defensive rebounds for the 2nd string center in the first five minutes of the second half.
