Warm Up…By Watching The “Freezer Bowl”

Yes, it is brutally cold this winter.  But not as cold as what the Bengals, Chargers and fans suffered through in the 1981 “Freezer Bowl” AFC Championship Game.  The game was played in upwards of -59 degree wind chill conditions.  A nice bonus is that the game was announced by the legendary Dick Enberg, who just recently passed away.  Also, here is another fun fact— former Bengal & 700 WLW Sportstalk Host Bob Trumpy was in the booth, but only to pass on via notes throughout the game what he knew about the Bengals to Enberg & Merlin Olsen.

So why not warm up by watching what is one of the few playoff wins in Bengals history?

Welcome Back Buckeyes Basketball!

What a win this past Sunday for the Basketball Buckeyes!  Yes, it is a little disappointing that Ohio State couldn’t crack the Top 25 after a convincing win over #1 Michigan State, but that doesn’t diminish an epic win.

It is nice to see Ohio State Basketball relevant again after a couple of down years to end Thad Matta’s tenure in Columbus.  Don’t get me wrong, I was a Thad supporter and was puzzled how his ouster was handled by AD Gene Smith.  I also will admit to not being totally sold on the Chris Holtmann hire.  But it was obvious that Thad’s time as Head Coach needed to end.  Personal health issues and lackluster recruiting made that apparent.

There is no denying Holtmann has made an impact already.  This team looks focused and interested on the court again & slowly but surely, fans are responding.  The atmosphere at The Schott vs. Michigan State was unlike anything seen or heard the past few seasons.  It is also a true joy to watch Keita Bates-Diop finally round into the star we knew he could be.

Of course, all of this warm & fuzzy feeling could end Thursday with a loss to Maryland.
But for now, let’s enjoy it.

When Will Danica Patrick Just Go Away?

Danica Patrick has a new book out.  Isn’t that great?  Now that she is no longer racing, she has a book to peddle.  It is called “Pretty Intense” and it describes a “90-Day Mind, Body & Food Plan That Will Change Your Life”.  I guess when it has been discovered that you were a fraud as a race car driver you need to find other avenues to make that scratch you lost when you lost your ride.

Danica, do us all a favor.  Just go away.  Fade into obscurity.  Because the longer you continue to try to force yourself into the spotlight, the longer you continue to remind us that you were just a pretty face that was marketable.  You never deserved your ride, whether it was in Indy Car or NASCAR.  You kept a deserving driver out of a spot.  Your looks and “personality” made you appealing to sponsors…until now.  You have been figured out.  You were a horrible driver.

Now, let’s try not to ruin Aaron Rodgers’ life.  Yes, Danica and Aaron are now an item.

I will allow for one thing.
If Danica wants to keep posting Instagram pics of her yoga poses, fine.

Your NFL Boycott May Have Worked

As many of you may know, I took a very harsh attitude awhile back toward those who said they were boycotting the NFL because of players taking a knee during the National Anthem, which you can read again here–https://busstopmedia.wordpress.com/2017/10/03/your-nfl-boycott-is-stupid/

I still believe it is a player’s right if he wants to protest.  But, I may have underestimated the backlash.  A recent report has NFL Regular Season ratings in 2017 down nearly 10% (9.7% officially) compared to 2016.  Now there are other reasons for this as well, a heavy proliferation of games (Thursday Night Football being streamed on Amazon Prime & games from London on Sunday Mornings are two examples), a dilution in play due to health concerns and the increasing unpopularity of instant replay.

That being said, I will admit when I am wrong.  It does appear the NFL Boycott of many fans is making an impact.  Even the Baltimore Ravens responded by sending out a letter of apology to season ticket holders blaming declining tickets sales on protesting players.  Even more eye-opening is, by comparison, NBA ratings are up 20% this season over last season.

Now, we shall see how ratings fare over the NFL Playoff Schedule & Super Bowl but I will admit I did underestimate the impact fans had over Professional Football this past season.
