SCOOBY DOO, BOOMER NEEDS A CLUE
SCOOBY DOO, BOOMER NEEDS A CLUE
DING, DING, ……I HAVE TRIED MORE THAN ONCE THIS WEEK TO STAY AWAY FROM THIS TOPIC. IN FACT I PURPOSELY PUSHED MYSELF AWAY FROM MY DESK BUT MY KEYBOARD KEPT CALLING ME, AND HERE I AM. SQUARING OFF ONCE AGAIN AGAINST BOOMER ESSIASON. AFTER THE 49NER’S HELD ON TO BEAT THE EAGLES LAST SUNDAY CURRENT CBS HOST DEION SANDERS WENT ON THE AIRWAVES OF THE NFL NETWORK AND ANNOUNCED TO THE WORLD THAT THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL FOR JIM HARBOUGH IN SAN FRANSISCO. DEION SANDERS SAID HE HAS TALKED WITH UNNAMED SOURCES THAT WEAR UNIFORMS, SUITS AND TIES FOR THAT MADE HIM STATE THAT JIM HARBOUGH’S FUTURE IS NOT BRIGHT IN SAN FRANSISCO LOCKER ROOM AND THE TEAM.
THIS COMMENT UPSET JIM HARBOUGH, COLIN KAPERNICK AND OTHER PLAYERS, BECAUSE THEY CLAIM IT’S NOT TRUE. JIM HARBOUGH WANTED TO KNOW THE NAMES OF DEION’S UNNAMED SOURCE AND THOUGHT HIS REPORT WAS ABSOLUTLY FALSE AND I QUOTE A “BUNCH OF CRAP”. DEION SANDERS’S COMMENTS ALSO UPSET ONE BOOMER ESSIASON. BOOMER SAID
"I don’t think anybody should take too seriously Deion’s reporting," he said, "other than it’s probably some disgruntled defensive back on that team that is probably not happy about how he’s been treated, so let’s open up a locker room wound and throw it out there. 'See how we can make our coach squirm,' which is idiotic, in my estimation."
NOW…BOOMER I UNDERSTAND, THAT YOU MAY NOT LIKE WHAT DEION SAID, AND I WILLING TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY NOT APPRECAITE HOW DEION SAID IT, BUT THAT SIR DOES NOT MEAN IT’S NOT TRUE. FOR SOME STRANGE REASON IT APPEARS TO ME THAT YOUR DEMEANING COMMENT ABOUT DEION IMPLIES THAT HE CAN ONLY GET STORIES FROM DEFENSIVE BACKS. THE LAST TIME I CHECKED PRIMETIME IS WHO HE IS……A HALL OF FAMER WHO REPORTS STORIES JUST LIKE YOU. BOOMER YOU ACT LIKE IN THE WORLD OF JOURNALISM THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A UNNAMED SOURCE BEFORE. THAT IS HOW THE JOB IS DONE….ONE PERSON TALKS …..THAT LEADS TO A BIGGER STORY.
WHAT BOTHERS ME THE MOST ABOUT YOUR SIMPLE MINDED APPROACH IS THAT OTHER SPORTS COMMENATORS ARE ALL BACKING DEION. YAHOO SPORTS WRITER, JAY BUSBEE SAID YOU SOUNDED LIKE YOU ARE AIRING SOME OLD GREIVANCES.
WHAT I WOULD PERSONALLY LIKE FROM YOU BOOMER ESSIASON IS LITTLE MORE THOUGHT AND FACT CHECKING BEFORE, YOU UNLEASH THE OTHER CANNON THAT IS AS BIG AS YOUR ARM STRENGTH ONCE WAS. SETH WICKERSHAM WHO COVERS THE 49NER’S HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT JIM HARBOUGH….
“He's in his fourth year with the 49ers, a team that before he arrived was in a decade-long morass. But after three NFC Championship Game appearances and a close loss in Super Bowl 47, the team seems to have all but concluded that unless this season ends with a championship, Harbaugh's way of winning is probably unsustainable. Many successful coaches can be jerks, of course. But in San Francisco, it's gotten strangely personal.”
SO WHEN THE 49NER’S TABLED CONTRACT EXTENTION TALKS WITH HARBOUGH AT THE BEGNINNING OF THE SEASON, YOU WOULD THINK THIS MIGHT BE A SIGN OF TROUBLE OR AT LEAST SOMETHING IS GOING ON.
I AM SORRY TO CARRY SUCH A COMBATIVE TONE, BUT IN MY OPINION SCOOBY-DOO COULD FOLLOW THIS TRAIL. I MAY TO CONTACT CBS AND TELL THEM THEY NEED TO HIRE THE GUY FROM BLUE’S CLUE TO COME HELP YOU FIND A CLUE.
LET ME STOP NOW BEFORE I GET ARRESTED FOR VERBAL ASSAULT AND LOWERING THE BOOM ON BOOMER.
BUCKEYE STUDENT SACKED
So, by now we’ve all seen the footage of Ohio State strength and condition coach, Anthony Schlegel, choke-slamming Ohio State student, Anthony Wunder, for running on the field during last Saturday’s game against Cincinatti. If not, run to your nearest smart phone and check it out.
Come to find out, the kid’s a 4 year engineering student and I’m sure he’s feeling it right now from his fellow, future engineers club and most definitely mama and daddy Wunder. To add another log on that fire, it comes out yesterday that the kid is being charged with criminal trespassing and is LOSING HIS SCHOLARSHIP.
That’s right, a free education at a very prestigious university flushed down the drain for something we’ve all seen many times throughout the years of enjoying college football. A very harsh reaction to a very childish act, but come on, it’s college. The NCAA already has a track record of being over the top and overly “gung ho” about it’s phone book size, policy manual, but just like the NFL picked a terrible time to end it’s 5 year partnership with breast cancer awareness, it’s certainly terrible timing for any university to snatch a kids scholarship for a dumb mistake, when that very same field probably has a couple of players on it who’s cases are in the “preliminary stages”. There are schools all across the nation with players involved in despicable acts 20 times worse than this and their punishment might be a game, maybe a season, but to snatch the entire scholarship? To kick him out of the Evans Programs for caddies and golf enthusiast? Although character and leadership expectations are routinely attached to scholarships, this seems a little harsh.
Only if decisions came this fast and easy when football players punch a woman in the face or sexual assault a female student or are attached to violence and guns.
Universities love to tell us that the students are the #1 priority, but Ohio State showed us what happens when you mess with “THE Grandaddy’s” favorite child, Saturday “$” Suzy.
