It is that time again, Football season is upon us. What an opener for College football last Thursday night. My favorito Broncos of Boise State University manhandled Oregon Ducks again this year. Last year they did it on green duck turf, this year on blue Bronco turf. The only difference is that their jerseys have blue stains on them this year.
What a punch by LaGarrette Blount; is he on steroids? or pissed off that he was named LaGarrette with double t's, double r's, double a's and double e's! Hell if I had been named that I might be looking to punch my momma!!
Seriously, the first thing I would do at U of O is to have him submit to a drug test, that behavior is similar to aggressive out of control behavior typical of humans mixing steroids in their blood system. I believe the University of Oregon should be commended for the way they handled the youngster although many will say it too harsh of a punishment. Oregon Ducks just went up several notches on my ranking for athletic programs after their quick and decisive determination. I believe this at least gives Mr. Blount an opportunity to ponder his actions before going out into the real world some evening at a night club with a gun and losing his temper. It also gives other young athletes the opportunity to reflect on their own behavior and why might happen if they can not control themselves and keep good sportsmanship in the game. I do not blame LaGarrette Blount wholely as he sees this type of behavior sometimes displayed among the NFL, MLB and continuosly displayed in the NBA. LaGarrette, I wish you the best in the future. I played college football at BSU and in England and I know that sometimes emotions run high; but it takes an all around athlete to promote great sportsmanship.
Onto the NFL, that I did not mean to disgrace upon their opening night - Super Bowl defending Champions - Pittsburgh Steelers vs Tennessee Titans tonight. I am excited because I play Fantasy Football - makes the games alot more interesting. Word of warning out there before I start having my coronas and a couple double shots of Sammy Hagar's beloved Cabo Wabo -- Arizona Cardinals are still here!!
