The Super Bowl concluded the official NFL season last Sunday. We then had a week to get all concerned about how Cam Newton reacted. It’s been a whirlwind, going back to September, with NFL content galore. We often get busy and work on lots of things, reacting to news in the NFL, college football, and other sports. Things get lost in the mix. It’s time to exhale, and go back through those items still parked in our drafts that never made the light of day. Enjoy! (these make up a fraction of the things still sitting out on the virtual desk and ready for spring cleaning).

 

SEPTEMBER

“WWE Diva Summer Rae Talks About” — I’m not sure, there’s nothing there. Nothing worse than a “talks about” post.

“High School Players Attacking Officials” — Remember when this was a thing, after the hit on the official in Texas? I pulled some research on other incidents but never went further.

“NBA Jam Session VHS is Very 1993” — Ryan started it; here you go–

“Pumpkin” and “Penguin”– Stephen Douglas was on a one-word P kick on September 15th

“Curt Schilling’s Facebook–Not Done” — Curt Schilling’s Facebook is never done. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

OCTOBER

“Josh Freeman Fumbled Five Times Playing in Something Called the Fall Experimental League” — the link is here. Reminder: just a few months later he played in a week 17 game for the Colts with playoffs still mathematically possible.

“Cubs Aren’t Cursed, They Are Outmatched” — they would get swept shortly thereafter.

“Rugby” — Stephen always finds Rugby things. Here was one that never went public on our site.

“Cleveland Browns QB Graveyard” — RIP Johnny Manziel

NOVEMBER

“Kyle’s nerd baseball notes” — there are no notes because Kyle was subliminally trying to suggest to us he is no nerd

“Tommy John Surgeries Youth Baseball” — I started to write about this and got busy

DECEMBER

“Les Miles Dabbed While Visiting 5-Star Recruit” — Les is always ahead of the curve in trying to kill something off by having middle-aged white guys do it

“Dr. James Naismith Describes First Basketball Game as ‘Violent Free-for-All’ in Only Known Audio Recording” — What would he have thought about having to watch Kansas play this year?

“The Big Lead Sports Personalities of 2015” — Christmas happened. Bowl games happened. Maybe next year.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY

“Nick Saban Dancing” — you didn’t need to see that

“Literary Starting XI” — Ty tried to work in both JK Rowling and Ernest Hemingway but couldn’t come up with a Goalkeeper.

“Clippers Finally Called for Foul They Couldn’t Complain About” — we scrapped this one when they complained.

“Cam Newton Truth Piece” — we decided you couldn’t handle the truth.

“Trampoline Dodgeball” — true story, I played Trampoline Dodgeball at a local Sky Zone. Held my own against the high school football players

“Confident Rick Santorum Compares Himself to Nick Saban and Urban Meyer” — No, Rick, Saban is Hillary and Urban is Obama. You are James Franklin.
