Time for FaceOFF.

Keith:

Vanderbilt Coach James Franklin says he doesn't hire an assistant coach until he sees his wife. Wants to make sure she's a D1 recruit.

This is a variation on Moneyball's "ugly girlfriend = no confidence".

What is this... Caveman Diaries?

Andy:

What if James Franklin has really bad taste in women? What if there's something called "beauty in the eye of the beholder?" maybe the women picked him up?

Keith:

The NFL won't cancel the Pro Bowl.

You know why? Because we keep watching!

Andy:

Right, the last one had almost 13 million viewers and it's the highest-rated Major League All-Star game there is... plus, the players all have Pro Bowl bonus language written into their contracts, so they'll hang onto it with tooth and nail.

Keith:

This year's Principal Charity Classic Pro-Am celebrity was Chris Harrison. Andy, this leads me to my next question: who is Chris Harrison?

Andy:

Why, he's the guy who hosts the Bachelorette.  Er, the Bachelor.  Maybe both, I'm not sure.  When the celebrity needs too much introduction, it's time to find another celebrity.

Keith:

Fuzzy Zoeller sold many bottles of Fuzzy's Vodka this week. Isn't vodka supposed to be colorless and odorless. Why not just buy Hawkeye Vodka???

Andy:

The guys at Templeton Rye are probably laughing and clapping at the TV, Murph.  Fuzzy is a good name... I'm not sure that it's appetizing, but it's easy to remember and he's got lots of money, so I'm not surprised it's selling well.

Keith:

My son had a fifth grade graduation that had more pomp and circumstance than my college commencement.  Don't get me wrong, I'm proud of him. But if he didn't make it through fifth grade, we have a real problem. Or we live in the Quad Cities.

Andy:

The "entitlement culture", as some call it, is in full effect with stuff like that. I remember having some pizza and cake on my last day of elementary school, but we didn't have caps and gowns!
