With all of that being said, message boards can be littered with people that are absolutely insane. That is the part I love. I was reading the Tigers message board (memphistigers.org) this morning and ran across a thread that was called "Down with Schnucks!" The premise was that Tiger fans should be outraged that there is an orange Fanta display in the shape of UT. What follows is people saying that they will no longer shop at Schnucks, they will voice their displeasure, and other fans should call and email to voice their displeasure. What ensues is absolute hilarity to any sane person. Let me say that this type of thing is not exclusive to the memphis message board, it just happened to be the one I was reading this morning.
I love the Tigers, and I would also propose that Schnucks get rid of all carrots, orange peppers, ole el paso taco seasoning packages, basketballs, and orange juice. Why is blue juice not as prominently displayed?
This was my favorite quote in the thread... "That is exactly what needs to be done, in a polite, but firm manner. This is MEMPHIS, not Knoxville, and such disrespect is both outrageous and intolerable."
Remember, this is regarding an orange Fanta display. Those are some pretty strong words. If I worked at the store and someone came up to me and told me that the stupid Fanta UT display that we had was disrespectful, outrageous, and intolerable... I would probably pee on myself with laughter.
Boycotting a store because there is display for another school? I saw that Rocky Top News was being carried at Kroger and Tiger fans should boycott them too. Outrage! Where should I shop? There is only one Piggly Wiggly in town and it's gutter.
Here is the thread for your entertainment. DOWN WITH SCHNUCKS!!!!!! Message boards are the best.

In addition to that, Grizzlies fans will love to hear that Chris Wallace (New GM of Grizz) will be in studio today from 5-5:30 and will take callso on the Grizzlies off-season. I am thrilled to announce that he will be on the show with a weekly segment throughout the season. We will have more great news regarding our Grizzlies coverage as the season gets closer, but this should be big.

Here was the Elvis from Iceland as a sample.
p.s. Nice to see the Navarro deal and its particulars were reported in the papers in Washington and Memphis. We reported it on this very blog 2 weeks ago. How many stories we will have to break before we are "credible"?

If Tiger Woods got injured, or died, tomorrow, would we say that he was the best ever? Of course we would, because we would believe that he would have gotten 5 more majors easily. So why do so many say that he is not the best ever until he breaks the Nicklaus record?
Rick Ankiel's return is probably my favorite sports story of the year so far.
A few weeks ago Sonny Vacarro was on the show, and he was great. The interview is still in the archives below if you missed it. Regardless of your opinion of Vacarro, he is one of the most important basketball figures ever. Thus, there is going to be an HBO movie focused on him with James Gandofini (Tony Soprano) playing Sonny in a feature called ABCD Camp. I wonder if anyone will buy Gandolfini as anything other than Tony Soprano.
Vince Young got suspended for the preseason opener. Your QB should be an example for the rest of the team. I guess it doesn't matter because he will get hurt anyway. He is on the cover of Madden, he's cursed.
Rob Neyer from ESPN is on the show today.

Today is the day that Dog the Bounty Hunter makes his appearance on the show. His show has been the top-rated show on A&E for quite some time. Best mullet ever. The Dog is on the Chris Vernon Show today. Check it out. I think today is the last day to vote for the Flyer awards. Scroll down to rock the vote if you have not.

Memphis receives J.C. Navarro
Washington will receive a first round pick from the Grizzlies (contrary to what has been reported, I am told that this is how it will break down)
I will try to make this as simple as I can, but it is a little tricky
'08 if the Grizzlies select 20 or further down, it goes to the Wizards (top 19 protected)
'09 if the Grizzlies select 17 or further down, it goes to the Wizards (top 16 protected)
'10- '12 the Grizzlies pick is lottery protected
'13 - the pick is top 12 protected and if it has not been given, cash considerations will be given to the Wizards.
I love the way this shakes out for the Grizzlies and it is much more comforting than the reports that it is simply a lottery protected pick that they are giving up, etc.
