Unsportsmanlike: Wed 10-25

     Occasional quick hits on topical oddities in pop culture, news and sometimes even sports...

     Butch Davis told The Miami Herald he wants to return to coaching (find story here) and wouldn't rule out any job. The revelation debuted at No. 2 on a list of The World's Least Surprising News, right after violence in Iraq. Politically correct Butch is quoted saying a lot of nothing. Given truth serum, he might have said, "I'd truly love to replace Larry Coker and come back to UM, but we all know they're much more likely to go after Greg Schiano at Rutgers."

     AacharlieWatchedAageorge the first debate in the governor's race last night and was struck by two things. 1) Did either Jim Davis or Charlie Crist answer a single question without criticizing their opponent rather than focusing on their own plans?; 2) Crist has a creepy tan. Looks like mummified actor George Hamilton.

     Ralpha Arza should resign, if driven only by abject embarrassment.

     Satan has announced a new repository for the worst of the worst called Uber-Hell. The first resident will be Danny Rolling.   

     TAacopshaqurns out Shaquille O'Neal, a reserve deputy in Bedford County, Virginia, participated in a raid there last month in which police busted down the wrong door in a child-pornography raid. Question: What if it was the right door and the guy inside had a gun and Shaq was wounded? "Dear Deputy Shaq, Can you please be a fulltime basketball player the next couple years and delay the police stuff until your retirement? Many thanks. Love, Pat."

     We are not yet positive that criminals are dumber than the rest of us, but we continue to gather evidence.

     I have no problem with UM reinstating suspended receiver Ryan Moore. Although it's no coincidence it coincides with the tough closing stretch of schedule commencing Saturday at Georgia Tech.

     Rush Limbaugh on his radio show accused actor Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's, of "exaggerating the effects of the disease." Ol' Rush is making it easy on those of us who thought he might be an idiot by removing any doubt whatsoever.

     SAaborat_2aw The Departed the other day. Rare when my wife gets me into a theater. I thought the acclaimed film was fine, not great. What I'm really looking forward to is Borat. Not sure what that says about me, but it can't be good.
