The Global Longball

I had a chat with my sister. She mentioned she’s going back to South Africa for a church visit. She loves going out there, but she’s not looking forward to the flight.

It’s a seventeen (17) hour flight from Washington DC to Johannesburg SA. Are you kidding me? I didn’t even know they had jets that could stay in the air for 17 hours until recently.

One of my biggest secrets is, I don’t like flying. I don’t like it at all. I am a white knuckle flier. For a seventeen hour ride on a jet, I’d have to be sedated with Dramamine. No kidding, I can’t sleep while in motion. It’s a good thing if you’re driving but a real bad thing if you’re on the Global Longball.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
