Les Miles out at LSU

But what happens if Bobby Petrino is able to keep his dumbassery under wraps in Louisville? I mean, have you seen what he's done over there with that program? Or has he been hit with the SEC banhammer?

The thought occurred to me that while all other broadcasters use a color commentator, Scully works alone.

Chuck Kaiton, the radio play by play guy for the Hurricanes, works alone. I love hearing just him during the game play. On the TV side, the 'Canes have John Forslund calling the action, who I like, but they have the awful Tripp Tracy as his color guy. Makes me appreciate Chuck and the letter K working alone all the more.

In other bad idea news: one of the frozen pizza brands sponsored an NFL post that featured Cam Newton getting picked off during either last week's game or during the Super Bowl. I'm in North Carolina, man! Doesn't twitter allow gelocation ads? Dumb.

Right. It's a metric sound, which, as you may remember, is the unit of sound that Jimmy Carter tried to get the US to adopt back in the '70s after hearing Rush's "A Farewell to Kings" one wild night with Willie Nelson atop the White House. #highasshit #prog4ever

I'm sure a full scullership would be alluring enough for him to angle for one. Though, I'm not sure why he wouldn't be casting for one.

The current rule for away-from-the-play fouls applicable to the last two minutes of the fourth period (and last two minutes of any overtime) pursuant to which the fouled team is awarded one free throw and retains possession of the ball will be extended to the last two minutes of each period.

This is a pretty good rule, actually. Yes, I like it. Maybe that will cut down on the stoppage of play every two freakin' seconds.

Are any of the NBA Finals games going to be close?

Speaking of not being close, I guess the Stanley Cup Finals will be over tonight. The Sharks look completely gassed. Reminds of the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals between Carolina and Pittsburgh. The previous series vs Boston took everything out of the Hurricanes and they met up with the young and hungry Penguins. Ugliness ensued.
