LAMM AT LARGE: Guys That Rub Me The Wrong Way

todayMay 12, 2022

Background
IR-RI-TATE — get on someone’s nerves . . . rub someone the wrong way . . . irk . . . annoy.
Those are some of the definitions of the word. And they describe how I feel about certain sports personalities.
In no particular order I give you my list:
Aaron Rodgers, NFL quarterback — Always thinks he’s the smartest person in the room.
Kyrie Irving, NBA guard — See Aaron Rodgers.
NFL Giants and Jets fans — I guess it’s a New York thing.
Marcus Spears, ex-NFL player turned TV sports commentator — Thinks everything he says is funny. Its not.
Nick Saban, Alabama football coach — Looks down on anyone who isn’t kissing his backside.
Richard Sherman, NFL defensive back — Thinks he knows everything.
Draymond Green, NBA forward — Hard to put me finger on exactly what it is but he irritates me.
LeBron James, NBA player — Thinks he’s a real king.
There are no PGA Tour or MLB players on my list. I’ll back to you on that later.

He wasn't expected to be a super star when drafted in the second round. So how in the name of Michael Jordan […]

LAMM AT LARGE: An Unfamiliar Win Last Sunday

You may not have recognized what you saw last Sunday at TIAA Bank Field. The team wearing and white-and-black uniforms with the Jaguars logo on it's helmets hadn't been seen in years. QB Trevor Lawrence was efficient, not great. Ditto for every offensive position unit. The defense was great. Five take-aways, […]
