Peyton, Female Hoops and Odd Future

Hear, hear on Peyton Manning. While I do think they finish better than the 6-10/7-9 you pegged them with, I agree with all of your points. In Indianapolis, Manning worked best with smaller, quicker receivers like Harrison/Wayne. In Denver he has goliaths in Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. Jacob Tamme could catch 100 passes this season based on the fact that he will know where Manning wants him to be. Without caring to look up their schedule, I could see Denver finishing around 9-7/10-6. The Chiefs look to have a bounce back year, but the Raiders and Chargers don't scare me. Denver might win the division by default.

I think the only destination for Peyton Manning was San Francisco. An even weaker division, a better defense, stronger running game and better receivers (Crabtree/Manningham/Whatever Moss gives/Vernon Davis >>>>> Decker/Thomas/Whoever replaces Eddie Royal/Tamme). Alex Smith gave this team a B- last year, and was a special teams abortion away from the Super Bowl. I think Manning could at least give this team a B+, possibly more. This was the only viable option for him, in my opinion.

Count me in the bunch that firmly believes that Tebow will challenge Mark Sanchez for the starting spot by week 8. Not because I think Tebow will improve that much, but because I think Sanchez is that bad.

Kudos to the aesthetic improvement that has been made in female basketball over the past 10 or so years. In the past couple of weeks, I've encountered Stanford's Womens Bball team face to face, as well as seen quite a few players watching UK's team and seeing the high school/college All Americans play on TV. The number of attractive players is impressive, and an increase of roughly 140% over the number of attractive players in 2002. No offense to Teresa Witherspoon or Rebecca Lobo, but I'd much rather watch Candace Parker (my love), Skylar Diggins or UK's own Keyla Snowden . Well done, ladies.

I'm horrified about the Cats game tonight against Louisville. More so because of the circumstances, than the opponent but horrified nonetheless. I'll go into detail later.

Had a chance to catch Odd Future when they came in town last week. Good, but not great. My main gripes is that Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt were nowhere to be found. Their overall set was disorganized, but it was because their DJ was absent. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it. The highlights including someone throwing raw bacon on the stage, and three chicks randomly throwing money on the stage. I dig "The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2", but I'm looking forward to hearing more From Earl. I also don't see Frank Ocean sticking around much longer, which saddens me but is a necessary move. That guy has star written all over him.

I am excited about the news of Anchorman 2. News of Triplets, a sequel to Twins, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy? Not so much.

You ever listen to Big KRIT?
