Watch Out. I’m in a Mood.

There are some things I need to get off my chest . . .

Stop talking about what a big deal it is that Tiger Woods won an 18-man exhibition in his own tournament. Good for Tiger, but nothing more. The victory isn’t his first in 2 years. I heard he won the men’s association shootout at Islesworth back in September. By the way, Tiger didn’t win last year’s Tiger Invitational because Graeme McDowell made a couple of bombs on the last two holes. . .

Why is it NFL defensive coaches are so smart they’ll figure out how to stop the TimTebow offense but they haven’t figured out how to stop the West Coast offense or the standard pro style attack? Could it be more about personnel than scheme? You think . . .

Why are teams with outstanding offenses and average defenses considered great, but the reverse isn’t true? . . .

People who think its okay to take up two parking spaces – one for tailgating stuff – in crowded lots are the epitome selfish jerks. You know who you are . . .

Giving a thick-bodied, 32-year-old baseball player a 10-year, guaranteed contract is stupid. I don’t care if it is Albert Pujols, who does indeed rank with the top 10 hitters of all time. That’s exactly what the California Angels did, and they’ll regret this decision within three or four seasons, if not sooner . . .

The one college football bowl game I will not miss is the Fiesta Bowl between Oklahoma State and Stanford. For me that’s much more compelling than The Rematch. I’m not sure FSU-Notre Dame in Orlando’s Champs Bowl isn’t No. 2 on the must-see-TV list . . .

Why are the Green Bay Packers going to lose during the regular season? Because their defense is average to below average and they’re only one hit away from losing quarterback Aaron Rodgers . . .

I couldn’t care less that the NBA owners and players finally settled their issues. And cramming a 66-game schedule into four months is going to make for a lot of uninspired play from a lot of players and bad entertainment . . .

If you have any interest in college basketball then you owe it to yourself to catch a UNF game. Coach Matthew Driscoll is building a solid program . . .

If the Indianapolis Colts do, indeed, face a Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck situation, they’d be crazy to stick with Manning. One thing great NFL franchises do is rebuilding before they have to rebuild. Remember the 49ers trading Joe Montana even he still had something in the tank to go with the younger Steve Young? Besides, there’s still some question whether or not Manning will be physically able to play . . .

Don’t think for a moment that just because Jaguars’ General Manager Gene Smith was recently given a three-year contract that he’ll stay with the team for three more years. Smith’s salary is about that of a veteran player’s minimum pay. . .

    Glad to hear Gene Smith might not stick around…but any other team would be out of their minds to hire him 😦

    FSU is dirty and Notre Dame isn’t…so after a few helmet to helmet hits this game will be over unless the officials will ACTUALLY DO their jobs.
