We Didnt Tell Everybody How Rocky The Sea Was We Just Brought The Ship In

These seriously get better and better every single week. I'm telling you ESPN you really have something here. You could just nix the NBA pregame show and have Lou give Pep talks for every team in every sport.

"Washington Wizards, I know you're hurting with Arenas out, but was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!"

next time someone asks me how to spell Mississippi I'm going to say "the river or the state?"

Doesn't anyone find it interesting that ESPN and the rest of the media rips into Nick Saban for using 9/11 and Pearl Harbor in a speech about his football team (even though he didn't directly compare his team's position to those events), yet ESPN will promote the hell out of Lou Holtz when he talks about the Kansas/Missouri border war, in which he says men were dragged out into the street and killed like animals, and compares it to the Kansas/Missouri football rivalry? Lou even said that the border war directly tied to the football game, where as Saban just used 9/11 and Pearl Harbor as examples of when people come together and do great things in times of despair, which is where he thinks his team is right now.

I think this is more than just a little hypocritical.

Uh, did Lou say someone "gets taller when they lie down"? Does that mean what I think it does?

chone, I think that was a fat joke.

j., I saw the segment last night and thought the exact same thing. I guess dragging innocent civilians from their homes during the Civil War in flyover country doesn't quite set off the alarm bells in Connecticut like a 9/11 reference.

Good defense by the Washington Wizards drama boys, if only we could patch up the difference, this will be a Washington good season. They are running, switching in defense, rebounding see those efforts. We don't have yet the Wizards team down.

I which I could see some Wizards games live. I was looking for tickets all the good seats on ticketmaster were taken I had to check broker. And man you don’t want to do that especially for the Washington Wizards. Thanks god there sites like Ticketwood which work as comparators here is the site
