… Well , Ray Rice won his Appeal [#NFL suspension]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 2nd,2014

.. now , the question is whether a team is going to take a chance on him …

.. this season , not likely . His situation is too recent , and his public reputation is too radioactive for any team organization to be able to deal with the headaches that will ensue the signing of Rice . There will be a substantial and negative public reaction , and any team has to ask , will bringing him in be worth the backlash ?? ..

.. [link] to the blog news report …

.. next season [2015] , it will likely be a different story . Rice is still a very talented [if diminutive] running back . His football ability is still unquestioned . But what will be the reaction then ? There will be one . The likelihood is that it will be by an established and strong organization , especially one with an established organization [from top to bottom] that will make the move ….

.. but who ??

.. someone will , but for next season , though . I am just not sure yet of who will do it . It will just not be for this season , however …

… Great and Simple Ad , Scarlett !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 1st,2014

.. I caught this ad , even though I am not exactly a Scarlett Johannson fan . Well , I am still not , but I am open to the possibility , now . She is unquestionably beautiful , no doubt about it . Also , a great ad . Simple , Dignified . Classy . Emerging Company . Known Company .

.. [h/t — BleacherReport]

.. [link] to the commercial .

.. I caught up with this because Sodastream is a good product , but more so is because it is an Israeli company , with operations in part in the West Bank [Judea & Sumeria] . Johannson has , until recently , had charitable food group Oxfam as one of her good works . She broke ties with Oxfam because of calls of her to split with Sodastream , and over their ops in the West Bank .

.. from what I know , Johannson is not Jewish , but has family that is . So , she is no dimb bulb . She evidently did her homework before she took up the ad campaign for Sodastream . She pretty well understood what she was getting into . Not the boycott calls , though .

.. this one is the ” uncensored ” version . The ad will run on FOX on the Super Bowl broadcast , but the last part of the ad , about Coke and Pepsi , will be edited out ..

= = = =     = = = =

.. yea , I am a football fan . If you are wondering , I am a longtime and lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns . So , you can say that I am a glutton for punishment [Ha!Ha!Ha!] …

.. yea , I am going to watch the Super Bowl . I am pulling for Denver to win . The big difference will be Seattle ‘ s offence against Denver ‘ s defence . Peyton Manning will find a way to move the ball . Moreno & Ball will help , some , maybe enough . The difference maker will be MarShawn Lynch & Co against Denver ‘ s run defence …

.. If Seattle runs the ball well , then Denver is in trouble . I do not think that Seattle will , unless they bring back the read option and use it a lot .

.. Denver 28 , Seattle 24 ..

… Costas , You should Stand Down from doing the Game …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 15th,2013

.. many of you have heard about the uproar over Bob Costas , and his using his perch at pNBC to preach on the subject of the name “Redskins.” ..

.. so that you can judge it for yourself , this is a link to a clip of the comments , carried at the Daily Caller [link]

.. LEC again here —  I think that if Costas felt this strongly about this , he should have asked his bosses for the night off . Using his halftime commentary segment for his diatribe is waaay out – of – bounds . He was not one of the game announcers , but one of the network commentators . He has to make a judgement on when something like this is  allowable and dignified …

.. a long time ago , here in Greater Cleveland , a sports anchor made a commentary segment early on in the Iran Hostage Crisis . He was , as you might think , severely critical of the thugocracy in Qum , and , believe it or not , burned an Iranian flag , and then tossed it off of the set . It was out – of – bounds then , and Costas was out – of – bounds last night …
