Flight

Expensive Flights Lead Monday Ramblin’s…


Monday, March 5th is the first Cardinals pre-season game… 

Billy Cundiff is a goat. Kyle Williams is infamous. And there is a big difference. Missing a short field goal late in a game happens. It stings for Ravens fans. But Kyle Williams will forever be the subject of every bar slash buddy slash workplace 49er conversation for as long time goes on. It’ll get better if the Niners win a championship in the next couple of years. But Kyle Williams’ name will be fashioned in a variety of uses. Scorn, agitation, deification (for Giant fans, at least), etc. al. I don’t think he planned on being infamous when he woke up. Now he’s in the Montana/Rice/Lott pantheon. Only exactly opposite…

I’ve seen many Tweets and FB posts saying people aren’t interested in seeing a NY v BOS Super Bowl. It’s the NFL. It’s the Super Bowl. You’re going to be interested, friends. And the ratings will prove me right…

Cardinal writer and friend of the site Christine Coleman came strong with a piece about Yadier Molina and his second straight year of jogging off the Winter Warm Up. Read the GMs comments. It’s looking like we’re headed for Pujols Negotiations Rd II. It’s eerie how similar things are starting to play out. Sounds like the Cardinals are willing to let him get to free agent status before making an offer…

The cheapest roundtrip ticket from STL to London the weekend that the Rams play the Patriots in Wembley Stadium? $1,060. Yup. Good for St. Louis, right Rams?…

The journalistic ethics in sports have been more blurred than ever since the advent of blogs and Twitter and the networks practice of hiring former jocks in various roles. But I’m a little confused on how Teddy Bruschi can sit next to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, embrace him when the Pats clinch the AFC Championship and then go on to work as the guy who’s giving me analysis about the upcoming Super Bowl for ESPN. I get he played for the Pats and has relationships with the team. I also get that everyone has a little bias. Damn this is out in the open now, right?… 

Maybe I thought Moneyball was going to be an awful movie. It sounds like one on paper. But it was a damn good movie. Maybe Billy Beane is a cool MFer in real life, but this flick didn’t do anything but push his stock way higher in life. I’d now feel comfortable having Brad Bit depict me in my life’s big screen opus…
