The Morning After: July 29 30, 2010

Oops.

You know, I’ve “worked” here for almost two years now and have pretty much written one TMA a week for most of that time.  I prided myself as being the only n00b here not to forget to write my TMA.  Guess what?  I suck…just like the rest of ‘em now.

TIM TEBOW NEWS!  AAAAAAAAAAH!!  (Denver Post…by the way, he signed)

Speaking of the twig and berries, watch those antimicrobial soaps, fellas. (FoxNews)

It’s confirmed — Fat Albert is, well, fat. (Washington Post)

This Wikileaks scandal is fascinating me.  I feel like it could end up being a defining moment in our military’s history.  Maybe my perspective is kinda small, but it’s like how the media coverage really affected Vietnam and was a paradigm shift in modern war…this just involves the relatively recently new 24-hour media cycle and internet phenomenon.  (CNN)

Tennessee’s strength coach has a unique method.  (Go Vols Xtra)

Memphis investigators are convinced Lorenzen Wright’s death was a homicide.  (Commercial Appeal)

Cheating in the Pac 10+2 is almost as fun as it is at Bammer!  (ESPN)

Jake Brown defended his Big Air gold last night at the X Games.  (GrindTV and ESPN) You may remember Jake from 2007:

What time is it in Tuscaloosa? (Losers With Socks)

B$@#t F&^!e took his coach armadillo hunting.  No word on if it was Tracy Porter that intercepted the gun slinger’s bullets. (Twin Cities)

Chris Bosh felt the wrath of Wall Street after ringing the bell at the NYSE.  (NY Post)

Forget tobaccy, dip, or chaw, Dusty Maker chews Australian Chew Sticks.  (Reds.com)

Jeremiah Masoli and Houston Nutt…what could go wrong?  (Oregonian)

The Big Twelve-2 basically paid Taxas A&M to stay. (Houston Chronicle)

Did you hear about the LeBron fan at the Indians game the other night?  He and his shorty were removed because he decided to wear the up-to-date jersey to the game…his shorty was fiesty:

That’s it for me this morning. Stick around.

    They have actually announced that they will be changing their name to the Pac 12.

  2. Bron fan did nothing to back up his shorty when she mixed it up. Chump. NEVER LEAVE YOUR WINGMAN!

      If only she was wearing a Wade jersey.

  3. seriously though, I’ve had squirrel, rabbit, and gator, and I’d definitely eat raccoon if given the opportunity.

    but I wouldn’t even touch armadillo with Trey’s fork.

        Right on Miz!!!

        That’s not being picky, that’s being OCD.

  5. Does anybody else think that the Big 12-2′s current structure is unsustainable and that they will eventually dissolve?

    Big difference. Reporters have an obligation to report the news. This guy was an army intelligence officer who was trusted with the security of our nation. He became disgruntled and released almost 100,000 documents for some sort of revenge. They will rightfully make an example of him and he will spend a long time in jail.

    I had secret security clearance and they make it really obvious what the rules, regulations and consequences are for not handling classified material appropriately. This case is far beyond that. The next guy with an axe to grind will think twice about wanting to spend the next 20 years in a military prison.

    Instead of sending him to prison, they should send him to the front line in the most dangerous part of Afghanistan.

      He’d get Neidermeyer’ed in a second. Rightly so.

  8. I think he’s a hero. The more everyone knows the better, especially about military and government secrets.

  10. I don’t trust the military farther than Obama can throw a baseball. And he throws like a girl.

  11. I’ve got no problem if these documents are showing waste and such, but if this information is actually putting lives at risk he should be shot.

      I don’t need documents to know that a branch of the government has waste.

    • I’ve got no problem if these documents are showing waste and such, but if this information is actually putting lives at risk he should be shot.

      Well I have a problem with it. It is not up to the individual to decide. He released classified material.

      I can understand the justification if there is one specific piece of information that he felt the public needed to know about. He just wholesale dumped the whole database. Don’t make this guy out to be a crusader for truth and justice. He betrayed his oath and the trust the other soldiers had in him.

      I feel very differently about soldiers who talked about obeying illegal orders to kill civillians in Vietnam. In that case there was a specific illegal act that they were trying to prevent from reoccurring.

      In this case he didn’t like getting people coffee so he dumped a database out onto the Internet.

  12. The Big Twelve-2 basically paid Taxas A&M to stay.

    So the Univeristy can take basically a $20 mil bribe, but if they buy a player a plane ticket home, they’re on probation. Makes a lot of sense.

  13. I don’t need documents to know that a branch of the government has waste.

    Do you really think he read through all of the documents before releasing them?

  14. Does anyone know if Masoli was ever convicted or just accused? This seems pretty low for even Houston Nutt.

      He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

  15. We’re on the same page CycleDan. Sounds like treason to me. Line up the firing squad.
