Re: “Redbirds Up, Tigers Down

Great catch, atfleming (and thanks). I'm so unaccustomed to lefties on the mound in the Cardinal system, I tend to go on autopilot in evaluating their arms! (At least Garcia's right arm is injury free.)

Re: “Memphis Athletes of the Decade: #5 — Stubby Clapp

Thanks for commenting Strait Shooter.

I'd define as significant an athlete who achieved a large degree of success "in the arena" of play, one who became something of a talking point among Memphians, and one who is hard to replace/replicate/imitate. By those definitions, Stubby's a member of the club.

Needless to say, we welcome/encourage debate. Please be sure and look for #4 next month.

Re: “FROM MY SEAT: Goodbye, and Good Luck

Some kind of firestorm here. Enough to warrant an addendum to the column. The perception seems to be that I have a personal distaste for Joey Dorsey and Andre Allen, when actually I am "rooting" for them in a sense I'm afraid too few Tiger fans do. My hope for each of these young men is that they use their lives at the University of Memphis (both on the basketball court and off) as a springboard toward successes that are more wide-reaching (and long-lasting) than professional basketball contracts. It's beyond debate that their college days to this point have included transgressions atypical of your average student-athlete. Part of that aforementioned springboard, I would hope, is a leap from those troubles. Bottom line (and my intended message): Joey Dorsey and Andre Allen will make their greatest impact away from basketball. Senior Day should not be seen as an ending for them (or any Tiger player), but a beginning. (And here's hoping Allen proves me wrong; graduates this summer, and is back in uniform - and grad school - next winter.) -- FM

Re: “FROM MY SEAT: This, That, and the Rocket

Quoting from LeftWingCracker: "Seriously, you think Bill didn't know the Jets backwards and forwards already, with Eric Mangini as their coach? Who trained Mangini, eh?" PRECISELY the reason Belichick looking for an edge - beyond the boundaries of the rule book - is so repulsive. The sad (but honest) truth is that Belichick's tarnished track record will be the ONLY blemish when history looks back on his remarkable 2007 team. Unfair to Brady, Moss, Vrabel, and the rest. But deserved criticism.

There goes any chance we had for President Battier.
