Roch Around the Clock


The Kickoff

October 24, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

I'm not always right, but I did say the Broncos were a lock - not a dominant one, but they covered - and that Kenny Rogers would outpitch Jeff Weaver to even the World Series as it shifts to St. Louis.

Not exactly going out on the limb, but please don't ruin my moment.

So Rogers had an unfair advantage because of the "substance" on his pitching hand? (It was pine tar, folks. Let's not call it anything else.) He didn't exactly get smacked around after he washed it off.

I hate the close-ups of Weaver peering in for the sign from his catcher. The expression on his face makes it look like he just heard something really, really bad. Or smelled it.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit during Sunday's game against the Falcons.

The guy can't catch a break. He's knocked woozy whether he's wearing a helmet or not.

A little research shows that Morten Andersen's first game-winning field goal got him so excited, he flung his leather helmet in the air.
