    I don't think Steve Wieberg played anything but a typewriter.

    I'd trust him too, but not as much as I'd trust others. You can understand the game without having experience, but Ozzie Newsome and Ted Thompson will probably understand the game a little bit more.

    If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn't mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they've given it their best. That's a winner.”

    Charles Barkley is a good looking man, Darvon.

    Look at the young men who get jobs at ESPN, local TV etc. They're all good looking. It's the way visual mediums work. Same with Hollywood. Even most of the ugly actors are handsome, if they let them be.

    Walk into a TV or ESPN newsroom and you won't have any problem picking out the on-air folks. They look better than the schlubs around them.

    Yep. On air requires good looks, mostly. And a little secret. TV makes people look ugly. A 6 on TV is an 8 in real life.

  8. I think the job she wanted was De Smith's current position.

    I dunno. I look at the men that get jobs at ESPN and the women that get jobs at ESPN. if the men that get jobs at ESPN (non-athletes) are considered attractive, then I will never in a million years understand what women find attractive.
