This & That

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greg Gaston @ 6:17 pm

YOU CAN JUDGE SLAIN FORMER NFL STAR STEVE MCNAIR ANY WAY YOU WANT TO, BUT I’LL JUDGE HIM IN THIS VEIN……HE WAS ONE OF THE FIERCEST COMPETITORS TO EVER PUT ON A FOOTBALL HELMET.
MCNAIR PLAYED INJURED. MCNAIR PLAYED WITH PAIN. AND MCNAIR PLAYED WITH A WILL TO WIN THAT RIVALED THE ALL TIME BEST.
HE UNFORTUNATELY WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING HIS MURDER, AND COMING UP A YARD SHORT IN ATTEMPTING TO LEAD HIS TITANS TO A SUPER BOWL VICTORY. BUT TO ME, “AIR” MCNAIR WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AS A PLAYER WHO LEFT IT ALL OUT ON THE FIELD. HE WAS ONE OF THOSE SPECIAL QUARTERBACKS WHO COULD STAND IN THE POCKET, TAKE A HIT, AND DELIVER A 40 YARD PASS WITH VELOCITY AND ACCURACY. HE COULD ALSO TUCK THE BALL AND RUN FOR 50 YARDS AND A TOUCHDOWN.
MCNAIR WAS A PROVEN LEADER ON THE GRIDIRON. AND THAT’S HOW I’LL REMEMBER HIM.
ALBERT PUJOLS RECEIVED THE MOST VOTES IN FAN BALLOTTING FOR NEXT WEEK’S ALL-STAR GAME IN ST. LOUIS. AND RIGHTLY SO.
WHILE SOME PEOPLE INSIST THE CARDINALS SLUGGER HAS TO BE ON THE JUICE, DESPITE MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL FINALLY TESTING IT’S PLAYERS FOR DRUGS, THE PUJOLS NAME HAS NEVER SURFACED IN ANY BOOK, ARTICLE, DOCUMENT OR LIST.
PUJOLS IS THE MOST FEARED HITTER IN BASEBALL. AND IF HE CONTINUES AT THIS TORRID PACE, PUJOLS WILL END HIS CAREER RIGHT UP THERE WITH AARON, MAYS, WILLIAMS AND RUTH.
THE GRIZZLIES WILL OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE THE ACQUISITION OF ZACH RANDOLPH ON WEDNESDAY.
THE POWER FORWARD FROM MICHIGAN STATE HAS THE CHANCE TO PUT UP SOME BIG NUMBERS WITH THE GRIZZLIES, AND PRODUCE THE LOW POST SCORING THE TEAM HAS LACKED THE LAST FEW YEARS SINCE PAU GASOL’S TRADE.
IN ADDITION, RANDOLPH HAS A CHANCE TO CLEAN UP HIS TARNISHED IMAGE BY HELPING TUTOR THE GRIZZLIES YOUNG PLAYERS AND BECOMING A LEADER BOTH ON AND OFF THE COURT.
THE QUESTION IS….WILL ZACH BE ABLE TO ENDURE ANOTHER LOSING SEASON AFTER PLAYING MOST RECENTLY WITH THE KNICKS AND CLIPPERS? IF HE’S ABLE TO OVERCOME THAT AND UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HE’S GETTING INTO, RANDOLPH MAY TURN OUT TO BE A VERY SOLID MOVE FOR THE ORGANIZATION.
IF NOT, WELL AS BETTY DAVIS ONCE SAID, STRAP IN, BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO BE A BUMPY RIDE.
