Pro Sports Wrap - Sports Personality of the Day:Tony Romo

Happy 42nd Mo

November 29th 2011 19:23
The greatest closer in MLB history turns 42 today, and his number is also 42 because he played before Jackie Robinson's number was retired league-wide. Mariano Rivera is obviously a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and anyone who suggests otherwise is toiling in idiocy. Happy birthday Mo, and I hope you don't retire after the 2012 season. He's still going strong into his 40's, and that's something I can say for maybe a handful of other players in history.

I would like you all to check out My2Cent's take on some really crazy blockbuster MLB trade that is hypothetical, but interesting all the same. If you like these sorts of mulling posts, then this one is for you.

Another link I want to lay down on you is the offseason notes for November 29th on FanGraphs that are always a must-read provided by the great Carson Cistulli. Every hardcore baseball fan should try and keep up with his notes daily, and I hope you guys check it out; it's well worth your time. And oh yeah, you can also vote on whether or not a team's broadcaster's are good in their Crowdsourcing Broadcasters feature.

For those of you Tool fans, I'm hearing that Maynard James Keenan is letting Adam Jones and Danny Carey come up with lyrics for their upcoming album. Their last album was in 2006 (10,000 Days) and their next one is sure to be a hit. I'll just sit hear listening to "H." while waiting anxiously for whatever the heck they want to call the next one. Jones and Carey come up with deep and insane lyrics, and their songwriting skills are seriously underrated. Not only that, but Jones and Carey are one of the best guitarists and drummers in rock respectively.

Christian Bale is going to stop playing the Batman, so it's time to cross our fingers and hope that they somehow find a worthy replacement. Bale has fit the role well, so the scavenger hunt begins that will hopefully lead us away from the Wild Goose Lounge; even if we need the help of James Roday (which wouldn't be a bad thing).

I leave you with these random thoughts, because Pro Sports Wrap is all about the random, the geeky, the insightful, and the just plain dumb. This is a very paradoxical blog, and it takes on the (split) personality of the blogger behind it. I hope you guys start checking out Tim Holland's blog, as he is easily the best sports historian on the Orble Network.

Ingenious use of categories, and great link backs. Tool is awesome, love sports blogs that talk bout pop culture like music sometimes but mianly focus on sports which is good and supposed to be.
