From Mrs. Ballgame, wife of webeditor Tommyballgame@lycos.com, a few of her random thoughts with her own special sports perspective:
The words "very cool" and "Bobblehead doll" should never be in the same sentence.
Her new favorite game? Playing "name the year" with me on Classic sports. I have to go by players
and coaches. She goes by haircuts, length of shorts, cheerleader outfits and hair, and the fonts the original channel
used. She usually wins.
On the brackets for the NCAA tourney this year: "A game played in Chicago is an East Regional?
Playing in Pittsburgh is now called a West Regional? Might as well call 'em John, Paul, George and Ringo
Regionals for all that means."
On free throws- "You are standing still. No one is in your way. If you are good enough to earn
a free education playing basketball, you should be able to hit 75% of your free throws. And don't even get me started
Upon seeing hundreds, if not over a thousand, people ice fishing on lake Winnipesaukee during the big ice
fishing derby, she chimed in with "Look! Darwin's waiting room!"
Her realization that I was making her wait for a timeout in a hoop game that was on Classic Sports:
"Those basketball players have skinny arms and extra short shorts. That isn't live! Get off the couch and give me a hand!"
On skiing and temperature: "There must be degrees. Zero degrees? As in NO degrees?
Then no skiing!"
On football: "Real men don't fair catch." (ok, maybe that was me, not her, but she'd agree.
I've convinced her that the Draw Play is the root of all evil, this can't be far behind)
