Keeping It In The FamilyJuly 5th, 2012 at 11:17 pm by Eric Murphy under From the Cheap Seats
- Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports does it again. He is the first on the Billy Baron to Canisius story. I am not at all surprised that Billy decided to again follow his father even if it means joining a struggling team in the MAAC. Chances are getting a waiver to play right away at Purdue was a bit iffy but the path to jump right into the action with the Golden Griffins is much clearer. Again, we’ll know more when the announcement becomes official.
- Former Indianapolis Colt Jamie Silva stopped by the studio today to talk about his annual camp here in East Providence. As usual Silva was both entertaining and informative. We covered everything from why his shirt wasn’t dry to his lukewarm feelings toward NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. (it turns out Goodell hit Jamie with a fine or two back in the day) Silva isn’t getting much love these days from NFL teams but he seems at peace if he never again has the opportunity to set foot on the field. He can always fall back on the broadcasting thing.
- I don’t have the time or the energy to delve into the David Ortiz hating life with the Red Sox situation. I just get the feeling that Sox Nation is still waiting for Papi to be the good guy in a clubhouse full of malcontent overpaid blowhards. The problem is that Ortiz is becoming the poster boy for some of the Sox deeper issues. He’s playing well enough for Boston brass to ignore his outbursts but the chances of Papi playing here beyond this season seem to be getting slimmer by the day.
