Nashville is buzzing about a phone call heard yesterday on the local 3-Hour Lunch show on 104.5 The Zone.
Two days ago, a listener named “Woody” called into the station to talk about Titans Coach Jeff Fisher to show hosts Brent Dougherty, Clay Travis and former Titan player Blaine Bishop.
“Woody”, who took some digs at the Titans head coach, had a voice remarkably similar to Randy Moss.
Excerpt from the call:
Woody: “If Jeff Fisher was the coach of (University of) Tennessee would they love him with his record?”
“What about when he fired Norm Chow by telephone and everybody’s dogging Vince (Young) but not him (Fisher)?”
“…. I don’t like Fisher”
104.5 The Zone later posted the audio of the call online plus an audio comparison between “Woody” and Moss. The results are stunning. Read more…
Paul Walsh of the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE reports that the restaurant owner who was insulted by Randy Moss over the quality of his catering for the Vikings has taken his case to the people of the Twin Cities.
Gus Tinucci, owner of Tinucci’s Restaurant in St. Paul, is offering free lunch to customers on Friday who hand over their Randy Moss gear. The items will then be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs in the city where Moss next plays - Nashville.
Pretty cool idea.
Walsh reports of what led to the charity gesture by Tinucci:
The newly departed Moss inspired the charity promotion last Friday when he screamed at Gus Tinucci in the locker room after Vikings practice because he apparently didn’t like the way the buffet looked. Tinucci said Moss used profanity to emphasize that wouldn’t feed the food to his dog.
That’s right, Moss never even sampled the food before going ballistic. Read more…
Recently NFL star Randy Moss was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings after expressing dissatisfaction with the Pats.
So how will things end up working out for Moss after his extraordinary move? It’s almost impossible to know how he’ll adjust, but if he takes his cue from his daughter, Vikings fans may soon be happy.
Rising high school junior Sydney Moss is already one of the best female basketball players in the country, with scholarship offers from many of the top college basketball programs around the country. But two years ago, Moss was entering her third school in just four years and had an attitude that reportedly was a “concern.” (She quit her high school team as a freshman and transferred.) Read more…
Former longtime NFL General Manager Charlie Casserly reported Sunday on CBS that before New England traded Randy Moss to Minnesota, Moss and Tom Brady had a heated dispute in the Patriot locker room over the length of Brady’s hair and Moss’s beard.
Casserly reported on The NFL Today:
“The week before Moss was traded, Tom Brady and Randy Moss went toe-to-toe and had to be separated when this happened. One of Brady’s problems with Moss was his behavior as a Patriot. One of the things that was overheard was, Brady telling Moss, ‘you need to cut your beard,’ Moss countered (to Brady), ‘you need to get your haircut, you look like a girl.’ … Obviously Brady had some problems with Moss’ behavior.”
When Casserly alleged the hirsute dispute between the two NFL stars, howls of laughter erupted off-camera on the CBS television set.
Jason Williams gives us an unfiltered glimpse into West Virginia trailer park life with an oft-unintelligible, expletive-filled rant at reporters after the Magic were slammed by Boston Saturday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final:
Can you guys please move out of my locker I asked you nicely. You don’t want me to get mean I’m sure. Can you guys please back the f— up. Thank you. F—. I asked you three times. What the f— is wrong with y’all man? F—. Don’t get smart man. Don’t get smart buzz, yeah I’m telling you don’t get smart buzz. (Unintelligble exchange with reporter.) … Step the f— back ………….. f—.
“Don’t get smart, Buzz”? Nice of him to throw in the West Virginia state motto while he was at it. Read more…
OK, I’ll admit it: I use a small radio blaring Colin Cowherd’s radio program to keep raccoons out from underneath my house (also works with Bill O’Reilly and Latin Fusion). But every once in a while something occurs that’s worth tuning in to upstairs … thank goodness DC SPORTS BOG is listening, so I don’t have to.
Here’s Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, discussing the prospects of having Jason Campbell as the team’s No. 1 quarterback, and most interestingly, how he feels now that he’s escaped the Oakland Raiders. To say that he rips Al Davis and the Silver and Black is an understatement.
You might have noticed this charming little fellow popping up in the corner of your screen during the 2nd quarter of New England’s blowout win over Denver. No, that’s not a decorative lawn jockey, placed there by ESPN to bring a smile to your face. That is what appears to be a Patriot fan wearing blackface and an afro wig. Good God, New England fans. You make this job too easy sometimes.
(Aw, man…no…just…aw, man…)
At first I thought it might just be an actual black guy. But then I remembered, no, this is Foxborough.
Somewhere in Los Angeles, Ken Rosenthal is feeling like Woodward and Bernstein when Nixon resigned. Somewhere in Medford, someone named Sully is posting on a message board blaming this on ESPN’s tint levels on last night’s broadcast. Somewhere in Milwaukee, C.C. Sabathia just said to himself, “Oh, hell no.” And somewhere in heaven, Baby Jesus sheds a single tear.
Typing that headline above was difficult, because I don’t think even the first half has ever been said by anybody ever. Peyton Manning is not average. He is not human. He’s still the guy who had the record for most passing TDs for a few years before last season’s ridiculousness that was Tom Brady and the Patriots*. And yet there he was at Lambeau today, throwing for 229 yards and two touchdowns. The teensy eensy problem with that line is that those touchdowns were for Green Bay, who slapped the Colts around and led by as many as 27 points up until garbage time. 34-14 is your final.
Yes, the Green Bay offense only outscored Indianapolis‘ offense by a count of 20-14, but the rest of the stats confirm the domination. Green Bay racked up 23 first downs, punted all of twice today (both boomed for touchbacks), and kept the ball for over 33 minutes, tiring a Colts defense that obviously misses reigning Defensive POY Bob Sanders.

What a difference a week made for the Cardinals. One week after getting blown out by the Jets and having receiver Anquan Boldin get knocked silly at the end of the game, Arizona turned the tables and was the one putting the hurt on their opponents, in this case handing the Buffalo Bills a 41-17 defeat.
And I mean that they put the hurt on the Bills literally: Buffalo QB Trent Edwards was knocked out of the game on the team’s third play of the series after a hard hit by Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson. The God of concussions can take away and he can give, too.

If it’s possible to remove all the steak knives, razor blades and other sharp objects from the entire Boston area, it might be a good idea to do that tonight. Michael Silver of YAHOO! SPORTS is reporting that Tom Brady’s left knee injury is a worst-case scenario, a “severe” injury that is going to KO him for the rest of the season.
Which means that we’ll learn one of two things over the course of the 2008 season: that Tom Brady really is a Hall of Fame quarterback after the team struggles to a 7-9 record; or that it’s the system and not the quarterback after the Pats go 11-5 with Matt Cassel taking the snaps.
