Blair Miller > THE SHIT SHOW, Randall Cunningham Version (Ep. 12) & Appendix
We’ve got some changes coming to TFQ, namely a change of web address, a new layout and this podcast available on iTunes. (We also decided to start each episode with #PROPS & #DROPS instead of What I Saw.)
For now, my co-host Yorga tries to help me through a hangover while we smoke up thoughts about what’s happened in the last week in sports – and what might happen in the future.
We/I deemed this the Randall Cunningham episode…. Here’s a sign of my love for Randall. (Note the Jerome Brown tribute crest.) This week’s Statgasm segment also focuses on his body of work – which indicates he was a more productive passer throughout his whole career than most people realize.
#PROPS went out to Michelle Wie for her first career major win at the Women’s’ U.S. Open. She’s often referred to as The Big Wie-zy, after Ernie Els’ moniker, The Big Easy, so I gave a Jeffersons tribute.
Yorga also gave her #PROPS for her wild post-win celebration, which included, but may not have been limited to, twerking and drinking out of the trophy.
#DROPS to Jets QB Michael Vick for saying that he started the current dual threat QB trend.
Yorga gave #DROPS to the Colorado Rockies fielders for somehow managing to allow three runners to score on a wild pitch. Sickening.
In our weekly What I Saw current events segment, we applauded Padres pitcher Alex Torres for wearing a new model of protective headgear on the mound. It may not look traditional, but it’s better than concussion or death.
We did a one-off segment, Will He Stay Or Will He Go Now?, otherwise known as the Clash segment. We discussed what the Miami Heat might do with their roster, and what LeBron James and the Big 3 may or may not do in terms of deciding their own contract situations. A frustrating thing about many pro athletes came up when wondering if Dwayne Wade would exercise his $20 million contract option, which would hamstring his team’s ability to improve the roster even though he’s surely already rich as hell. I wish more athletes would take pay cuts if their roster needs ask for it, because at the end of the day they’ll still be able to console themselves this way.
Here’s the box score for a Jays-Reds game that was our selection for Weekly Woodshed.
During the Statgasm on Randall Cunningham, I remembered Eagles CB Eric Allen’s amazing 94-yard clutch interception return for a TD to win a game versus the Jets during which Cunningham broke his leg in 1993.
