I'll be there to get this one.

Nancy Bea said...

Wow! Pretty good.

Orel said...

Hi, NB! And DB!

Eric Karros said...

Hi Orel!

Orel said...

Sorry, your last name doesn't start with a B. Can't say hi.

Dusty Baker said...

How are we all doing this fine morning?

Orel said...

Well, I wish there were football today.

Dusty Baker said...

I just took a shower (miracle of miracles! - before noon, even!) and the only thought I had was to bemoan the fact that there is no college football. Why do the sports gods hate us today?

Eric Karros said...

Agreed. I think part of the appeal of the NFL is there aren't games every day. I have basically zero interest in college hoops until March Madness, and even then I'm only interested if I'm in a pool of some sort.

I mean, what am I supposed to do the six days of the week when The Bachelor isn't on?

Dusty Baker said...

I have to make myself be involved with college hoops any more, even during March. With players spending all of a year or two with a team before going pro, it just doesn't have the same appeal to me any more. Used to be huge with me, but now it's a chore. I can sit around and watch My Left Foot State University play Buttercup State in football on a Saturday, but shit I can't even get up for a Maryland v Duke basketball game on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Times and interests change, I guess.

Eric Karros said...

DB - good point about the 1-year-and-out phenomenon impacting college basketball appeal. Fifteen years ago I had a decent amount of genuine interest.

Today, right now, I honestly cannot name a single college basketball player.

Not even one. Unless Tyler Hansborough is still playing.

I just got back from seeing UCLA, down 22-8 in the first half, cone back to beat Stanford at Pauley Pavilion. Good game!

Fernie V said...

you guys are right I could name every starter and bench players for my Orange and Miners. Now I am lucky to catch a game, and when I do I am not entirely paying attention

Dusty Baker said...

I can name a couple - no more - Razorback basketball players but that's it. Could have a gun to my head and couldn't name another college player. Have no idea who is currently ranked number one or twenty one.

Hear that NCAA?
