Topic 1: Every professional sports’ league has its token baby,
the one who never stops whining. Baseball has George Steinbrenner,
the NBA has, well pretty much everybody, and the NFL has Ricky
Williams who is now trying to make a comeback after his brief
retirement. It seems that the Dolphins don’t have any interest
though. Should Williams be allowed to return and what will happen
if he does?
Baker: The Dolphins need him. At 0-4 they are going nowhere
fast. Can’t hurt to give him another shot.
Bondy: No one respects him anymore, although I’m not sure anyone
Baker: I do. He went to Texas. Best sports school in the
Bondy: The Dolphins, if they’re smart, will retain the rights to
his contract. Then they should trade him to a team with a sorry
running game. The Cowboys will take him and then my boys will win
Topic 2: Is it a requirement for pro athletes to make babies all
over the place? Lebron James now fulfills that requirement after
becoming a daddy on Wednesday. Are James and his girlfriend, both
19, in over their heads?
Bondy: I guess he is a “King” and a daddy now.
Baker: Yeah, Prince James is going to be a lucky little kid.
That’s just messed up though. Lebron looks like he just went
Bondy: Yeah, that baby face is tricky.
Baker: The baby might affect his game this year, but that’s good
because he stole the Rookie of the Year Award from Carmelo
Topic 3: The baseball playoffs have begun. Our pick, the Red
Sox, are looking pretty solid and have cruised to a 2-0 lead in
their divisional series. The Twins, our other favorite, are 1-1
with the Yankees. How do the Yankees continue to get lucky when
they appear to be down and out?
Baker: They do have a solid team aside for their pitching. They
have clutch playmakers and luck is always on their side. It’s
Bondy: I have no reason to hate the Yankees, but I do. I hate
them and the Lakers. People who follow those teams are not true
sports fans, unless they are from Los Angeles or New York.
Baker: You gotta love the underdog. The Twins need a rally
monkey for good luck.
Topic 4: Q and A Lighting Round
Baker: Will the CSU football team win this weekend?
Bondy: No. Oh wait, they don’t play.
College game day picks:
No. 2 Oklahoma or No. 5 Texas?
Baker: Texas for the first time in four years.
Bondy: No chance. Oklahoma is the best team in the country.
No. 7 California or No. 1 USC?
Baker: Cal. The Trojans aren’t that impressive
Bondy: USC is overdue for a loss.
No. 14 Michigan or No. 13 Minnesota?
Baker: Minnesota. Michigan lost to Notre Dame.
Bondy: Minnesota. They’re running game is potent.
No. 3 Georgia or No. 17 Tennessee?
Baker: Georgia. They might be No. 1 by the end of the week.
Bondy: Georgia. Tennessee let me down last week. I hate Auburn
