Morning Thoughts While Cursing Paul Maguire

Saturday, December 30, 2006

Well last night sucked as far as picks went. I was 2-3, and I think I'm going to simply pick by conference now.

No offense to the teams playing, but today is by far the worst day of the Bowl Season. Navy v BC? Boring. Texas v. Iowa? Blowout. VT v Georgia? Well there's not a team I hate to watch more than Georgia.....but BC and Iowa are close.

As the title suggests......I can't stand Maguire. He was doing the Champs Sports Bowl last night with Bob Griese (who is okay) and Brad Nessler (who is above average). Griese and Nessler kept laying into him and all he could come up with is some dumb joke about how he won't bring Griese coffee next week. Griese was pretty funny though at times.

"I think it's an honor to sit next to a Hall of Famer"- PM
"Umm, I wish I could say the same"- BG
(insert lame coffee joke)
Nessler had the joke of the Bowl Season though. Purdue's kicker shanked a kick in the first quarter. As Nessler took them to commercial he said "Wow and that is shanked! Looked like one of those kicks at halftime for a prize." PM and BG laughed like little girls.

I just personally cannot stand Paul Maguire.....he is the worst of the worst. I don't understand how someone who played football knows nothing about it. But what do I know? Let's ask the Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame:
Had Maguire never played the game, his broadcasting career alone would earn him hall-of-fame status. On the other hand it is precisely because Paul played the game that his analytical instincts are so sharp, his observations so relevant, his criticism so knowledgeable.
F-that. Back later with the Meineke, Alamo, and Peach Previews.......get your picks in.....BC -6, Tex -8.5, VT -3.

I'm still sticking with BC, Texas, and VA Tech (but that BC pick is looking shitty right now.)

UGA is painful, but not as painful as GA Tech sometimes -- fortunately, the source of that pain is "academically ineligible."

I shouldn't forget to note the all time Paul Maguire moment -- when he admitted to eating a bunch of chili dogs and cheese fries before a game while the game was going on.

Next week, he was behind the camera at the end zone. He must have ripped some good ones.

Let us all bear in mind that Paul Maguire was a punter.

I mean, he played in the games, but he didn't really play the game, if you get my drift...
