Friday A.M. Wrap

"Live Sloppy?" The "Lance and Paris" rumors are among the most disturbing I've heard this year. The guy is the pre-eminent sports hero of our generation. She is the pre-eminent "famous for being famous" celebrity of our generation. I guess it makes sense in a completely wacked-out sort of way.

But if you thought it was kind of nasty for Lance to be having Matt Leinart's sloppy seconds, what about Lance having Brian Urlacher's sloppy thirds? (Are there any other athletes rumored to have been with Paris that I'm missing?)

T.O. making his Cowboys debut is so much less important than the fact that Mike Vanderjagt missed two would-be game-winning FGs in OT.

OK, so Rex Grossman doesn't suck nearly as bad as everyone thinks he does. (Doesn't help the grief I took for taking the Bears – behind Griese – to win the NFC title.)

Are NFL preseason records meaningless? I think the Raiders' 4-0 was exposed as a fraud after they were shellacked by the Seahawks. But I think the Redskins' 0-4 is cause for massive concern, simply because the WAY they got to this point is so brutal.

Wow: Marcus Vick is going to make it in the NFL. Take that, haters. (I'm no fan, but the guy went undrafted. Credit Nick Saban for taking a chance on him. I remain convinced that every NFL team will have a dedicated "QB-turned-WR" on its roster within 2 seasons.)

My Bad: I was so so so wrong predicting Agassi would lose to Baghdatis. If that's Andre's final winning match, it was a great one.

If it was "Florida State" instead of "Iowa State" and "Miami" instead of "Toledo," we'd be calling last night's 45-43 3OT thriller the game of the year.

(Less thrilling: Northwestern's 21-3 win over Miami/Ohio. The defense looked OK -- surprisingly OK, actually. The offense looked so-so, but I guess a redshirt frosh QB in his first start deserves a break.)

Papi back Saturday? At this point, he's playing for the AL MVP, 'cause he ain't leading the Red Sox to the playoffs. But, as I've said before, I'm happy to permanently put him at No. 2 on my MVP ballot, but if the Sox don't make the playoffs, there's no way he gets my vote.

(I've already argued that I kind of like Frank Thomas for AL MVP, but there's something to be said for giving it to Morneau or Dye, depending on whether the Twins or White Sox win the AL Wild Card.)

Is there a new "Face of Baseball?" Regular Quickie readers will remember that I totally rejected Derek Jeter as the "Face of Baseball" last season, in favor of Dontrelle Willis. I think the "Face" should be flexible, and I'm ready to change my pick: The NEW "Face of Baseball" is Ryan Howard.

Last thing: Bear with me as I work out what I'm going to write about, how I'm going to say it, etc. Do you like the idea of one topic per post (like USA Hoops or Leinart)? Or do you like the "all-in-one" of this "Wrap-Up"-ish post? Let me know in the Comments area. This morning remains pretty surreal...

Jake C said...

I enjoy the all-in-one to a degree. Maybe, try a group of topics similar to the DQ. One for each is too many, but one GIANT post may be too much to comment on. In any case, it looks like I still have something to do at work from 9-10am

Anonymous said...

too many posts, keep it condensed and centralized...

Kevin said...

I think you should cover the big stories in separate posts, then the little stuff all in one post.

Dye is a good MVP candidate, but my MVP is Johan Santana. The guy's unbeatable at home, and without him the Twins are probably barely over .500 right now. He is easily the best pitcher in the game today.

But I'm with you on the Ryan Howard = Face of Baseball thing. (did you know that he's as old as Pujols, though?)

Nick said...

I like the quickie-style as well where its lots of things in one post.

I know I have already sent you some rather stern messages in the quickie feedback but I am still wondering if you are ever going to fill your loyal readers in why there is no more quickie? If it's personal can't about it, that's cool but at least let us all know that is the case.

Keep it up, glad to see there is still a place to enjoy your entertaining writing.

I think it all depends on how much time you have. If youre bored, feel free to write a little more in depth about anything or everything. It would be interesting to hear you espouse your views without being restricted to a bullet point or witty comment. By the way, what are you doing now that youre no longer employed by the dot-com?

Jake C said...

Gotta love the Vander-jerk misses. Looks like Parcells actually has two headaches to deal with this season.

As for the NFL preseason, I have mixed emotions about the records. The Giants went 4-0 (but, is that good since they looked so strong, or bad and will look like the '05 Raiders).

Dye should definitely receive some serious consideration for MVP...but, the new face of MLB should be David Wright!

All in one. It makes the reading so much more interesting. Also, maybe linking to stories across the country about the topic you are discussing. This will allow the readers to find out more information for each topic.

I like the all in one because if I had a busy day/night before, I can read your column and get caught up on the things that matter within minutes.

Mike said...

All in one. I love the writing, but the reason the "Quckie" was so good in some ways was it was, well, quick. Maybe for huge semi-controversial stories one entry would be better.

Anonymous said...

I like the "wrap-up" format. The sports/entertainment world is too big for just one topic. Look forward to your continued writing.

Tim (ATL) said...

surreal is right... it's weird to do work from 9-10...

anyway... is vanderjerk (only cause I can't remember how to spell his name) DONE. Could it be a Mith - Wild Thing - kind of collapse, may he never get over the miss last year... crazy...

and about the MQ curse already hitting vinateiri... sure he may not miss much time yet - but it could linger...

Geoff said...

I like the Wrap up style for all the smaller stories. Then maybe a couple of bigger posts for the important stories (Team USA loss, stuff like that). You can keep the format that we are all familiar with while also getting to add stuff to important stories that you weren't give room to do at ESPN.com

Shelly said...

I like the bullet-points. Just don't try to make it exactly like the Quickie, because we just spent a week saying goodbye to that format.

Oh, and even though I spent a couple misspent years hating on andre agassi, he definitely made me a believer last night. Mostly for his grace off the court.

Carry on.

Tim said...

Am I being to greedy in asking for both styles? i.e. a big story or two and a wrap up for the rest of the news. BTW, missed you from 9-10 this morning, not sure if I can get used to this whole working thing.

LoganAvatar said...

One Post, Quickie style!

Rafael (BLACKSBURG) said...

I like how you just did it. The big post gives the Quickie feel, but putting 1-3 bigger topics separate gives a good chance for feedback.
Any way we can get a chat going somewhere?

BTW, Miami/NW wasn't too bad. Both defenses played well, Miami offense never clicked though.
Toledo and Central Michigan both gave BCS schools heart-scares. I'm thinking the MAC might rebound a bit this year.

Dan, you're doing fine, I'm happy just to get my fix of Quickie-like material! Go Steelers!

Flemming (Copenhagen, Denmark) said...

Dan, I can't believe that you went thru possible MVP candidates without mentioning Hafner, who, if the Indians were anywhere close to making the playoffs, would be the runaway winner.
Anyway, as of now, Jeter is the frontrunner......

I like all in one information, it reads quicker and if I get bored with one topic, the next one is soon to follow. Also, please... please give more credit to my hometown San Antonio Spurs.

The more the better; what else do I have to do, work? :) I like the wrap-up style, and then the longer posts for the bigger stories (USA hoops, for example). Bascially, keep writing it, and I will keep reading it.

Jaden (Cola, SC) said...

Thank God Blogger isn't blocked by the company network services.

Truthfully Dan? You should do this however you see fit on each day you choose to do it. This isn't the DQ and you don't have an audience that you must keep or be cancelled. This is your blog and the rest of us are just blessed to see it.

I will say that twice this week Agassi has made me stay up well later than I intended, because he doesn't seem to want to win easy.

Aside from that I watched the ugliest shutout I've ever seen, the 15-0 S. Car win over MSU.

I'd say Pujols is the face of baseball. He's an incredible athlete, nice guy, hits for power, average, setting records, and a lot of women think he's attractive.

I vote for Quickie style...

Wormy333 said...

Gotta keep the quickie style going. I'm too busy to sift through espn and cnnsi.com. You blog should be like a mini sportscenter.

P.S. Jeter is the all out favorite for MVP, I was at the stadium on Wednesday (yeah, yanks lost) but he was up, score was 2-0 Tigers, 2 men on and even before he got into the batter's box we were screaming MVP, MVP and he delivered, Ortiz is the only person that I couldnt even imagine conceeding the award to.

I like the the quick-hitting wrap-up posts. It's your style man.

Hende (OH) said...

Glad to see the same format, touching on a bunch of subjects. Was surprised it's a little more adult themed.

By the way, I've always heard it called "trickly thirds" instead of sloppy thirds.

ItsTJoint said...

Make this thing how you want it. You won't have a deadline with this other than 25 commenters who will come on and start making fun of you/your mom/wife. If you want to take a topic and put some substance in it, go for it. If not, spout the random thoughts (I think "Random thoughts/musings" are words included in 90% of these blogs).

Hey, as long as you keep writing, anything's ok with me! I was so glad to hear that you were making this blog after the Quickie ended... it helped stem the pain. :) Keep it up!

HadesGigas said...

When the Phillies miss the playoffs, is Ryan Howard still the "face of baseball." I bet you'd still like him as MVP. I also bet you liked A-Rod for MVP when he was won it on the Rangers and his team was NOWHERE NEAR the playoffs. So don't raise hell when Ortiz wins MVP. And someone please explain to me what makes Frank Thomas MVP? Sure, the power is there, I guess. I didn't know MVPs were awarded to guys on revenge tours. Kenny Williams was spot on about him, he is surly and selfish, so yeah, M-V-P. Oh wait, I thought DHs couldn't win? No, that's just for David Ortiz? Okay, sure. At any rate, the MVP is Jermaine Dye. That team has had shaky pitching for two months plus, all the while he has consistently won games for them. The Papelbon homer, the nathan homer, he's been as clutch as anyone. Yes, go white sox.

Long live Shanoff, king of revisionist, instant history, as well as sports articles for ADHD sufferers. Have a good day

SBG said...

Schilling: 3K K's. Combine that (14th pitcher ever) with his 200-plus W's and, of course, his two huge World Series titles, and he's a Hall of Famer.

Sounds like you could plug the name Bert Blyleven right into that sentence. Except for the Hall of Fame part. So far. Bert Belongs!

Brian said...

Dan, you're a fine writer, which is why I emphatically vote against continuing the Quickie style. I know you were supposed to do Insta-history, I know the constraints of a, uh, constrained column. But frankly, that bullet-point stuff in Quickie irritated me more than it entertained me.

As others have said, this is a blog, and there's no limitations on space. Write as much as a subject demands it -- every angle, every piece of evidence, every joke that can be extracted from it. I enjoyed this morning's posts because they weren't short and circumscribed. And there was real personality to them, too, which I never quite saw in the DQ.

So: Long as you wanna be.

When (not if) Ryan passes through 61 homers in late September, he should be recognized as the first true Home Run Champion to pass Maris. It digusts me to think that no one will ever really geta legitimate shot at the home run title again, because it was put so far out of reach by a cheater. 61 is still the true record and will fall this year to "the Man", Ryan Howard.

I vote for separate posts for big stories and one wrap-up of smaller stories. I also like the idea of linked sources for stories if we want a really in-depth read on a topic. I often wondered where you learned about stories that I had heard NOTHING about before reading the Quickie.

Wrap it up...wrap it up...wait, wasn't that a Subway commercial a while back? You should call it what it is: SHOW...Sports Headlines Over Work. This blog post and the previous quickie probably account for millions in lost productivity at the work place each day.

Quickie Style...you do it so well, you are so well spoken, you speak so well.

jamie said...

Can i make a design suggestion? I think you should make the font a little smaller, so more material is presented on screen at one time. Constantly having to scroll (alot) kind of sucks.

Also, is there anyway to make the blog a little wider? I think that might help a little as well.

Back to sports....that Agassi match was amazing last night! Damn, this guy knows how to go out with style, even if he doesn't win it all. First 2 matches...unbelievable. Here's hoping his back holds up for more of this...

Please Keep the quickie style. It's been my 11:00 AM break for several years now. I was nearly crushed when I heard the news about no more DQ column. I thought I'd have to find an alternative read in the AM or give up my break altogether. I really appreciate the style and the content.
Good luck.

I agree with the majority, I'd like the quick hitters on the small stories and now with this new format and freedom I'd like to see you expand your thoughts on bigger stories and issues.

Ryan Howard and David Wright play in the NL, which is the AAA version of the AL. No "Face of Baseball" should EVER come from the NL right now.

It should go to someone like Jermaine Dye, Joe Mauer, Roy Halladay, or someone who doesn't fall once they get their huge contract or someone that doesn't care to be a diva like Wright or Howard.

Jeteupthemiddle said...

You can't be considered the "face of baseball" if the most casual fan can't recognize you.

The measure for the "face of baseball" should be "My mom knows who you are."

Now my family is filled with Yankee fans, so it isn't really fair to use that test with Derek Jeter, but I will guarantee she doesn't know who Ryan Howard or Dontrell Willis are.

jeff (kc) said...

I prefer one larger post with several topics than several posts of one topic. Makes it easier on us as well as we can have one larger comment rather than lots of smaller ones. Should also make it easier on you to read them all as well.

jeff (kc) said...

Ok, after reading through all the comments, I'd have to agree with the people above who said a mixture of both. A wrap is nice, then maybe a separate post for the bigger stories. In this format there's no need to limit yourself in terms of size on things you really want to throw out there and talk about.

Evan said...

Its easier to follow with one and done. That said, its upt ot you how much you want to deidicate to any one subject and that decision will dictate the format. Good luck and thanks for keeping some semblance of the Quckie alive!

Mark (Austin, TX) said...

Given how the long post turns out when we comment I think I'd prefer the shorter version. Also there are other sites/places to do this that may work better for longer posts and comment threads. A combo blog and wiki site may be a good option. Blog for the stories, wiki for ongoing things like "The Face of Baseball".

Speaking of said face: Why not Albert Pujols? He has all the numbers, a winning team with tradition a plenty and at a young age is setting up for a run at some of baseball's most hollowed records (755?).
