2018-19 XU team

There definitely some very talented people in many walks of life, not only entertainment, who deserve a chance to show their unique fresh skills. But the business execs are risk adverse & afraid to take the chance on new talent. Sometimes it is nescessary for a Joe Phipps to miss the call of the bell for a Joe Damaggio to get his chance. Too bad because we are missing a lot. The old folks just refuse to give up the handles.
I prefer to see what the new young people can do.
Sorry to harangue on Bill Walton, but it is about the game, here & now! Not about yesterday, last week, the last century, BUT the game being played right NOW in front of our eyes! Isn’t that why we tuned in after all?
And please don’t shamelessly shill for your employer’s next game either!
We need Sgt. Joe Friday: just the facts, ma’m. We will do the investigating. Keep the drama & editorial to yourself.

As far as ”commentators” we don’t need them either. As the saying goes: “Opinions are like armpits, just about everyone has at least on & they all smell pretty bad.” The more repulsive version uses a different far more objectionable orifice.
A single play-by-play announcer who actually & unfailingly stated correctly what the officials’ call is & the infraction, such as who made the foul(often unstated or incorrect!) is all that in needed.

This season will be a whole heck of a lot of fun as it unfolds. It will definitely be a roller coaster ride. But isn’t the saying: “Noboy said it would be easy.” Let’s enjoy the ride! Have fun! For this we definitely have Thanksgiving!

Man, I still get heartburn thinking of the FSU game. Oh, and the Providence game as well. It seems like we were a 3 point away from burying those guys.
