ZONER’S MONDAY MORSELS

5

The post Super Bowl edition…

Dugout Central asks How, Why and Who Cares About the Baseball Classic? Not me. Not in the least.

I’ll believe it when I see it. Rumors have Holyfield-Tyson III set for Halloween in Abu Dhabi. The Toronto Sun reports each fighter would get $35 million dollars. Says the man promoting the event: “The idea is to stage the biggest night in the history of boxing and to do it in Abu Dhabi, which would be a great global event for the UAE capital.” Says me: insert Mike Tyson fat joke here. ‘Biggest night’? Get it? Let’s move on…

Can you name all of the Bears QBs since 1985? I missed 3. In my defense, one was Chad Hutchinson and he wasn’t really a QB. Awesome quiz.

No Big Al on the All-Star Team? Josh Q. Public sets it straight.

Remember when Jin Hendry traded Jerry Hairston for Phil Nevin? You do now! MLB Trade Rumors has spreadsheets containing the trade histories of GMs.

Oops, sorry Tusconans. Apparently their Super Bowl was interrupted for about 30 seconds with some adult programming.

Check out the latest from Empty the Bench’s “Photo Friday“. I spent countless hours playing that game.

And finally, Pat Knight wigs out and gets ejected. He also likely curled up in the corner of the locker room crying and mumbling, “I will not become my dad–I will not become my dad–I will not become my dad…”

    Not that you blogged about the Super Bowl, but the refs were HORRIBLE. At one point, I just started thinking the NFL doesn’t want the lowly Cardinals to beat their poster boy franchise in the Super Bowl.

    Yeah it was a pretty rough first half. Then it seemed that the Cards got all the calls in the second half. The calls on Dansby and Adrian Wilson were just insane.

    I’ll assume you meant the Steelers got all the calls in the 2nd half. I agree on the Dansby and Wilson calls. In a Super Bowl, those kinds of things just shouldn’t get called. And if they do, there needs to be a give back call to the other team immediately.

    Yeah I did. And it’s not that they weren’t “penalties”, but they totally didn’t affect the result of the plays, so why call it? My circle of friends would yell “Mafia!” at the TV when we see calls like that!
