Saturday morning coffee

- So...why is it that so many conversations start with the word "so?" It's the current bridge word which lazily is being used by everybody, it seems.

- The best, most entertaining and informative pre-game sports show on the air is ESPN's College GameDay. The well-informed, even-keeled delivery of Chris Fowler, coupled with Kirk Herbstreit's knowledge of all things college football, combines nicely with the verbal stylings of Desmond Howard and the goofiness of Lee Corso.

- Charlie Sheen obviously needs help. The consistent erratic behavior of this actor makes it even more of a head scratcher as to why Hanes would have ever selected him to appear in a television campaign.

- Thankfully the University of Missouri administration saw fit to release the "Faurot Field 30." Maybe they can intercede with the NCAA, while they're at it, to free Josh Selby.

- Did you know that it was seven years ago today that LeBron James made his debut in the NBA?

- So...(grin inserted here) what else happened in history on October 30? Well, it's John Adams birthday today. (You know, the guy who was our country's second President.) And, it's also the birthday of the Fonz--Henry Winkler turns 65 today. And, in one of the greatest sports moments ever, "The Greatest"--Muhammad Ali--knocked out George Foreman in the 8th round of a 15-round bout in Kinshasa, Zaire to regain his world heavyweight title.
