The shock that the brilliant Steve Sabol has passed, has given me a chance to reflect and remember how awesome he was, and what he did, in an artistic value, to promote and to define the NFL for us mere mortals back when the NFL was just getting its legs.
Sabol (NFL FILMS) had a weekly show that would show highlights of the previous week’s games and I remember how he would show the main plays in each game.
Part of the genius of Sabol was he commissioned Sam Spence to write music for the shows, and Spence would produce classic sounds to fit with the highlights of football plays…It was pure genius.
I could listen to Sam Spence non-stop.
One of my favorite sounds was entitled “Roundup”. It goes well with Cowboys don’t you think?
And the Pony Soldiers…it doesn’t get much better than that.
Steve Sabol was an absolute genius!
Josh Hamilton homers in return from latest “weird” injury
Either way the former MVP had vision problems, which are now being blamed on too much caffeine and sports drinks drying out his corneas.
Or as Hamilton joked to reporters before the game: “It’s me we’re talking about here. Guys, it’s me. It’s Josh. It’s going to be something weird.”
And then he went out and homered against the A’s, moving ahead of Miguel Cabrera to reclaim the AL lead with 43 long balls.
I’m wondering how long Arkansas is going to put up with this guy? He doesn’t even know where he is.
Arkansas entered the season ranked in the top 10 in the USA TODAY and AP polls, but it has managed just one win in four games. After starting out the year with a win over little-known Jacksonville State, the Razorbacks have dropped three straight games including a shocking upset to the University of Louisiana at Monroe and an embarrassing 51-0 shellacking at the hands of Alabama.
Head coach John L. Smith is not ready to give up. As you can see from the video above that Deadspin passed along, Smith was rallying the media, the fans and the state of Alabama to stick with the Razorbacks. That’s right, the state of Alabama.
Of course, Smith meant to say Arkansas. Everyone falls victim to the occasional verbal miscue from time to time, but obviously this one holds a little more weight than most. According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Smith was informed of his flub shortly after making it and played it off by saying, “Oh? I did? Where would that come from? I’ve never heard of Alabama?” We know Smith loves to joke around, but people would probably appreciate it more if his team had better than a 1-3 record.
You would think Hillary Clinton’s staff could get along with people.
This NFL referee thing is a firestorm. Duh..
It’s always the maid.
Have a great day, thanks for reading the blog!
