This ain't nothin but a get well card to Coach Mike Ditka, who had a minor stroke yesterday.
I read that he said it's "no big deal" and I sure hope that's true.
On my own little Altar of Sports, he's right up at the top.
He follows nobody's path but his own.
Even if that sometimes means getting a perm.
Get better Ditka.
Okay, college ball.
I've always said that while I don't necessarily like Notre Dame, I feel unusual when they suck.
Remember when Northwestern beat The Irish to open the '95 season?
I was SO happy, but after that every year it just felt weird that they were so lost and terrible.
So I was actually kinda happy that they were doing well this year.
When Oregon and Kansas State lost.
Because now I'm afraid ND will be the top ranked team in the country, and that's just wrong.
And if you read here a couple weeks ago about the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and their 8-game winning streak well, once again it's me just proving out loud what a miserable jinx I am.
They lost the next 2.
Lastly, the Cubs paid $1.75 mil for a 28 year old back-up catcher from the Yankees, Rays, Reds, and Dodgers twice, Dioner Navarro.
And somewhere Steve Clevenger said, "Ahhhhh crap."
Lastly lastly, if you listen to the Score on Thursday when they do their "Who you crappin" weekly segment, usually by far the funniest thing you'll hear is Ditka himself saying "Who you crappin?" during the open.
Think positive Ditka thoughts you guys.
