The Grind podcast 8/11: Flip and Bill go to Buccanner camp part II

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid made a fan remove a Donovan McNabb Redskins jersey at Eagles camp because it was a distraction (playing a felon at QB? not a distraction at all), Dolphin Linebacker and former Gator Channing Crowder can't wait to see Jet LB  Jason Taylor on HBO's Hard Knocks this year because "he is a very pretty, womanly football player" (true that. I wish all my women had the Mr. Clean look. Bald-o-licious); and speaking of womanly, an Astro fan is caught on tape (bottom of page) swishing his little pansy-ass out of the way of a foul ball instead of trying to catch it, letting it peg his poor date's arm in the process, and ending up keeping the ball. We haven't seen such a display of testicular-free sissy-pants behavior since our days at 1040. (BAM!)

You get all this and more for the low low price of jack-squat. Log-on today.

Houston, we have a pussy

The first sample-size of the 2010 Buccaneer season is but a few days away, but the buzz around the campfire is all #55, all the time. Not since Ricky Martin admitted he was gay has there been as shocking an announcement. Our favorite player, Mr. Derrick Brooks, has formerly retired from the NFL. We share our thoughts of the 11-time pro-bowler as we sweat it out on the scene at Buccaneer training camp. One word describes the demeanor of coach Morris as he fondly reminisces about the Buc legend whom he subsequently, immediately, and unceremoniously fired after he took the job: awk-waaard!

Now how much would you pay for the podcast. Don't answer yet because here's what else we have on today's menu.

This is freaky. Remember Freaky Friday (The classic Disney flick from the '70s with Jodie Foster, not the unnecessary remake with that worthless dipshit Lohan)? Anyway, long story short, it's the old formula of a child's soul finding it's way into an adult's body and vise-versa through wacky circumstances. My point is, I look into the eyes of that kid, Jeremy Hellickson as he won his second game in as many career attempts on the mound, and I see an old soul in there. Calm, cool, commanding. A winner. I can't help wondering if we aren't witnessing the ground floor of true greatness in this young pitcher. That and what the hell is keeping Lindsey Lohan alive?

Rays win total now stands at 69 (snicker). What. Oh, like you never thought of it.
