Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for October 18, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 18, 2011
Okay, okay, just one more bit about the Harbwartz Handshake Hullabaloo and we’ll be done with it, I promise. While everyone was busy replaying and dissecting footage of two middle-aged men squawking at each other, they missed 49ers OT Anthony Davis and Lions DE Cliff Avril duking it out on the Twitter battlefield. Save classy for Morton’s, indeed.
It’s Tuesday. If you’re me, that means desperately prowling the waiver wire in hopes of turning around your fantasy team’s three game skid. Before you pin your midseason hopes to Tashard Choice, let The Hazean help.
The Patriots brass whispered some gentle praise in Ochocinco’s ear yesterday. I guess they’re just happy to have The Ocho around. He does seem like a fun guy.
In other news about overrated wide receivers with major personality issues, Brandon Marshall described last night’s Dolphins drubbing at the hands of the Jets to be “embarrassing.” As someone that predicted he’d be thrown out of the game by the 2nd quarter for being TOO INTENSE, and then proceeded to drop his way to another subpar performance, Marshall should be considered an expert on the subject.
Of course, nothing is more embarrassing than getting arrested for stalking on your bye week. How’d you spend your mandatory four days off, Ryan? Oh, just curled up in the bushes outside Cindy’s bedroom. Huh, well, at least you seem well-rested.
Should high schools really be trying to set state records when playing against schools that clearly have lesser programs? According to Lake Nona coach Anthony Paradiso, the answer is unequivocally yes. Paradiso coached his freshman QB to a 10 TD performance during a 68-10 win over the ironically named Celebration High. You need to work on your PATs, coach.
If he’s lucky, that Lake Nona QB’s performance will attract plenty of scouts, giving that young man the opportunity to one day risk his body for free while lining the pockets of old rich white men. Your long read of the day comes from Outkick the Coverage, and it’s about how broken the NFL rookie eligibility requirements are.
