The Olympics? Who Knew?
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 7:43 am

Via the AP: Turin Games Kick Off With Surreal Ceremony

To which I saw: *YAWN*

Some news report on the radio yesterday breathlessly noted something about this being a once in every four years event, to which I mentally noted that they seem to never actually go away.

The MNF Trade
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:47 am

Too funny: Al Michaels deal reunites Disney with original animated character

A four-time Emmy Award winner, Michaels agreed last July to stay with ABC/ESPN as the Monday game switched to the cable network next fall, but he asked to back out and instead will broadcast Sunday night NFL games on NBC with John Madden, his partner on ABC during the past four seasons.

As part of the deal, NBC sold ESPN cable rights to Friday coverage of the next four Ryder Cups through 2014, and granted ESPN increased usage of Olympic highlights through 2012 and other NBC properties through 2011. NBC, in turn, gets expanded highlight rights to ABC and ESPN events.


By granting Michaels his exit papers, The Walt Disney Co., ABC’s parent company, will get back a piece of its history from NBC Universal: the first animated character created by Disney and the forerunner to Mickey Mouse.

His name was Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and the cheeky bunny was created in 1927 by Disney and his chief creative partner, Ub Iwerks, at the request of Carl Laemmle, the founder of Universal Pictures.

The very notion of making a trade for an announcer, is quite amusing.

The MNF Booth: The ESPN Version
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:47 am

Via the Houston Chronicle: ESPN: Tirico, Theismann, Kornheiser in Monday Night Football booth

ESPN announced today that Mike Tirico will be its play-by-play voice for Monday Night Football next season, signaling the apparent departure of Al Michaels to NBC, where he is expected to join John Madden on NBC’s new Sunday night package.


ESPN said Tirico will join former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann and Washington Post columnist and Pardon the Interruption co-host Tony Kornheiser in the Monday Night booth. Suzy Kolber and Michele Tafoya will be the sideline reporters.

Interesting about Michaels-actually having him go with Madden to CBS is just fine with me, although it will be weird to have MNF without him.

Tirico should do a good job, so not problem there.

I am quite pleased to hear that Mr. Tony is going to be in the booth-he is one of my favorite sports analysts, so that should be cool.

Now, if only they could find something to do with Theismann…

Super Bowl Commercials 2006
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:10 am

Forget the iFilms link I posted last night. Should you feel the need for Super Bowl commercials, go here.

However, I must confess, aw quick perusal of the list does not bring to mind anything from last night that was all that fantastic.

I stick with the Nimoy/Aleve commercial, because do so recognizing my Trek bias.

Super Bowl XL
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 10:07 pm

Ok, not one for the ages, but a decent games. Had Seattle been able to score a TD in that 3rd quarter drive rather than the holding penalty and the INT it would have been quite a game.

Congrats to the Steelers. Despite the fact that I still hold some animosity towards the team for those 1970s Super Bowl wins over Dallas, I must admit that they are a likable, so congrats to them and their fans.

Via the Austin American-Statesman: Buoyed by 2005 Rose Bowl victory, Texas pulls in a top-ranked class

Texas’ class was a consensus top five nationally, with ranking it third; College Sports TV putting it fourth; and having it fifth. It was tossup between Florida and Southern California for the nation’s top class.

The Texas group was chock full of football bluebloods, befitting a team that’s a month removed from winning the national championship. Topped off by No. 1 Sergio Kindle, 15 made the American-Statesman’s Fabulous 55, a list of the state’s top prospects, including six of the top 11.

Five were members of the Parade magazine All-America team. Kindle was considered the top linebacker in the country, while Kilgore’s Eddie Jones was the consensus pick as the nation’s best defensive end.

Sounds good to me.

James Joyner notes a remarkable sports story from last night: Kobe Bryant Scores 81 Points in Win Over Raptors.

That is impressive, to say the least. But I must confess that every time I see all this scoring from Kobe (he has scored 40 points several times this season), it makes me think he got his wish by getting rid of Shaq-he’s it in LA at the moment.

The question becomes, can he lead his team to the playoffs as an almost one-man show?

Seattle’s Pretty Good…
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:56 pm

…better than I expected, in fact. (A sentiment I suspect I share with the entire roster of the Carolina Panthers and their staff).

Now its on to two weeks of hype.

I wonder how many stories there will be in the next fortnight that compare the storied history of the Steelers with the, well, pathetic history of the Seahawks?

And what’s the over-under on how many times Holmgren will be called a genius or how many times it will be pointed out the Shanahan still hasn’t won, let alone visited, a Super Bowl post-Elway?

A bonus parting question: as a fired Head Coach, does Mike Tice get any tickets to scalp?

Roger Staubach has a Blog
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 4:44 pm

Roger Staubach, the football hero of my youth, has a blog: Monday Morning CEO.

It is a mix of business stuff and football. The most recent post references both the U.S. Supreme Court and eminent domain and the NFL playoffs.

Interestingly it’s powered by WordPress.

I was trying to find an online version of the NFL Network commercial with Roger and Roy Williams (which is quite cool) and came across the blog.

Cuba to play in WBC
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 5:18 pm

While I am no fan of the Castro administration, I am also no fan of the current, quite irrational, US policy towards Cuba. As such, I am pleased to see that the Bush administration allows Cuba into World Baseball Classic.

It just is the right thing to do. It’s sports, for crying out loud, and nothing was served in denying the Cuban players the opportunity to play.
