McCoy’s girl and drive spice up Fiesta Bowl!

The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl always makes me hungry for some scoops and salsa. Not to mention the fact that I am inundated with Tostitos commercials during each break. But this was more than about chips, it was about how would Ohio State lose another bowl game? After a 6-3 halftime score, the excitement was only shown during scattered camera shots of McCoy’s family and girlfriend. Holy smoke show! She topped all the highlights in this Tostitos Fiesta bowl and deserved more attention than these camera guys gave her. It’s a nice gimmick to pretend to focus on the parents then pull back the camera and get that girl in the shot. Why didn’t I attend a school in the south? At least a football frenzied environment where Saturday’s meant more than a Division 2 football disaster show. Anyways, I digress.

Second half proved to be much more exciting with some back and forth action happening late in the 4th quarter. This was all brought to you by Tostitos, home of the scoops. With Texas up 11 points in the fourth quarter, Terrelle Pryor, true freshman(very promising future) QB for Ohio State brought the Buckeyes back into the game. He caught a 5 yard pass from the other QB, fifth year senior Todd Boeckman. Later on another Freshman, Herron ran and scored on a 15 yard Touchdown run to boost the Buckeyes to a 21-17 lead with 2 minutes remaining. So the question remained, could Colt lead his team down the field for one more run at the Salsa?!?
Of course, this high-powered machine with Mr. Cosby leading the way with 171 yards and 2 TDs would not be contained. His second TD came on a slant with 16 seconds remaining bringing disaster to the Buckeyes and jubilation to the Longhorns. McCoy ended the day 41 of 59, 414 yards with two TDs and one INT. And that’s how the Buckeyes lost another bowl game. They looked poised and ready for this one but lacked the close. You can’t leave 2 minutes on the clock for such a high-powered offense to operate. Now can Colt McCoy be a great NFL QB? He seems like he’s got the tools but will that translate to the NFL’s speed and strength? I’ll tell you what I think, stay in college another year boy and enjoy that girlfriend of yours. Go on, pop that salsa top and enjoy a spicy scoop!

Yes, I ranted about a game no one cared about to highlight his girlfriend…so what!

Weekend Review Sure Shot

Another weekend’s come and gone, now we all face the week.  Let’s live in the past before the present and future kick our *sses.

Sam Bradford, OU QB, won the Heisman beating out Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow.  Is it me or did the Heisman mean more back in the day.  Maybe it’s the fact that no Heisman winner since Carson Palmer has been remotely decent in the pros.  Bradford may succeed on the next leverl, but the odds are against him.

The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to win exciting games.  They took out Baltimore in a physical matchup that had both teams punching each other in the neck for four quarters.  There may be better teams in the league, but is there a tougher team than Pittsburgh?  No.

The Dysfunctional Cowboys beat the Giants in Big D.  What will happen this week?  Will T.O. throw another tantrum or cry or do pushups on his lawn.  Quiet as kept, the FlyMaster hopes Big D disintegrates.

The Detroit Lions are still blazing that trail to an 0-16 season.  Good luck fellas!  This one is for history.Geico commercials have jumped the shark.  My disdain for neanderthals is at an alltime high.  I’m glad cro-magnon man beat out the neanderthals some 50,000 years ago. 

Waking up on Saturday and not seeing football left a void that Professional Bull Riding and meaningless golf tournaments really can’t fill.

Back to the Heisman.  Tebow wins the most first place votes, but comes in third?  That’s ridiculous. 

President Bush deserves a Heisman vote for his ability to juke Iraqi journalists out of their shoes.  First of all, how did the guy even get a chance to throw the second shoe?  Looks like the Secret Service doesn’t really mind some zapato hurling at the Lame Duck. 

Adrian Peterson ran for 165 yards yesterday.  He may not win the MVP awards, but name one player who’s better than All Day.  Go ahead.

FlyMaster Signing Off…For Now!
