FU (BO) ALL THE TIME

I spent half my life's earnings on wine, women, and song. The other half I wasted.

Best sports-ish skill? I am the dang king of snagging swishes made by 3pt shooters during warmups and firing them back out for another shot.

I'm the king of getting hit in the face by the ball when they miss.

Here, have some of these smelling salts.

My sports-ish skill is gum chewing, visor wearing, clipboard quarterback. I am also roughly the age of Steve DeBerg when he was doing that for Tampa in '98.

The golf guy holding up the quiet sign:

Ok Randall you got this, Singh is still taking some swings and gazing stupidly down at the tee box. The folks deserve to talk about that last shot shanked onto the cart path and where they are headed to next. I'll add about 5 seconds. Oh shit, "You da man" guy looks way too overzealous at this point in the protocol, might need to adjust time down by 2 seconds. Uh oh, the murmur is starting to climax and dangerously sounding more like reserved optimism, time to shut this bitch down before they break out in full fledged anticipation.

A few more sports-ish skills:

Taking book at baseball games (or recording stats at any other sport)
Feeding the ball machine (baseball or football)
Holding the punching bag
Smacking a wrestling ref with a towel at the end of each period
Hitting fly balls with the fungo bat

I've done all of these except holding the bag.

I'm pretty good at putting the mask on and warming up the pitcher while the actual catcher gets his gear on after being the last batter in previous inning.

"The *one* time the Zybrid would make sense..." I have been slammed non-stop by Bobby for making the ZYBRID too long, etc. Now I am getting slammed the other way. 15,000 words next week, it is.

You can't post that Kentucky highlight and not mention who caught the ball.

It was Ahmad Wagner. Like, legitimately good TE Ahmad Wagner.

On one hand, I think that solidifies Iowa as TE U. We'll take credit for AJ Derby too. On the other hand, anyone else think we could have really used him right about now?

LOL -- had no idea. College football always finds a way to burn away the happiness.

He's a wide receiver, according to his coach.

Iowa recruited him hard to play football. He listened but he chose Kentucky because they were recruiting him from high school.

He turned them down.

Is the ACC the Rutgers of conferences?

The Pac-12 isn't going to give up that title without a fight. 

I know they have a lot of Top 25 teams right now, but... let's see how things look in a few weeks.

Julio Jones could have been an awesome safety.

If, you know, he wasn't an incredible receiver...

If he was a true Iowa fan, punter would have been mentioned somewhere.

Sparty's inept offensive stats that I can't find now (am I hallucinating?) really jump out when you consider they're 10 pt road faves in Evanston. are the Wildcats officially jNW again??.

That line seems very wack.

My best sportish skill is scratching my nuts while watching baseball players scratch their nuts while standing around waiting for something to happen.

I'm also pretty decent at throwing my buddies golf balls from the golf cart after they shank theirs into the woods 10 yards off the tee.

I’m really good at drinking beer while watching sporting events and yelling at the TV to tell the players and coaches how to do what they’re doing better.  My wife even says I’m a grade A something muttered under her breath as she walks away. I can only assume she means athletic stud.

Bobby - Truth or Dare:  Who do you love best - Michigan, Iowa or Wazzu?  A dude can only have one best girl...

Maaaaaan. I mean, I definitely like Wazzu the most right now/last five years... but I've also still never been to a game in person. Iowa is my alma mater/gone to the most games... but the punting and off tackle (/vomits). Michigan I definitely hate most of the three (fans/coaches/entitlement) but sadly would probably mean the most to me if they ever won a national title. So I suppose M is the pick? Really, I would just like to see one do it in my lifetime, but since the sport only produces 2-3 unique champions per generation, it seems unlikely.

My non-athletic sports skill is the guy who holds the first down marker and drops it and flees when the play comes my way.

In my prime, Lindsey Meder clowned me in fieldhouse pick-up games, but I could almost guard Leah Magner.

My sports-adjacent skill is getting hit by inside pitches while looking like I'm trying to get out of the way. One time in little league I caught the pitch with the crook of my elbow and handed it to the catcher.
