Injury Update (Bubba Speaks)

Whitticker has what appears to be a high ankle sprain, and is in crutches with a boot on his right ankle as we speak. It looks like a longp-term injury and he will get an MRI on Tuesday.

Will says he can feel the pain all the way up his leg and in his knee. "My whole leg hurts," he said. Whitticker said he doesn't know exactly how it happened. "I don't even know, I just felt my knee buckle," he said.

As for other injuries, Bubba said Ladell Betts will get an X-Ray on his jammed neck but it does not appear severe. Mike Sellers aggravated a bone bruise on his knee, but that too looks minor and he actually finished practice, while Ladell mostly watched after getting run over by Marcus Washington in a blitz pick-up drill. "It wasn't something that he did on purpose," Betts said. "it's just a part of football."

Looks like Tyler Ecker is no closer to coming back from his groin injury - I think this kid could end up cut before he even really gets on the field if it lingers on another week or so - and Bubba praised Mike Espy's toughness and said he is almost back to taking full work, and he certainly did a fair amount today.

Okay, heading home now.

Cheers.

Wow, it took a long time to get LB jr. settled. I sang him all of Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest hits and some Bob Marley before he peaced out enought to sleep.

I might have geared him up a bit by singing "Hail" right before getting into his PJs. Yes they are Skins, jammies by the way.

Moms is in Ohio visiting kinfolk at the moment so I'm covering all parental duties.

Sellers has a nickname, I think. I'd swear to it, but I can't pull it.

He'll get a lot more carries in the pre-season if betts has a stinger in his neck.

'Course he has a boo-boo of his own. Kept practicing, though.

"Pale ale is a term used to describe a variety of beers which use ale yeast and predominantly pale malts."

I read your posts Larry... good on on Heyer. I'm rooting hard for him to work out. Would turn out to be a phenomenal pick up for us. And good long term depth. Looks like between the Golston and Montgomery last year and Heyer this year plus the lb's we drafted in the later rounds that Ol' Joe might not be too bad of a talent evaluator. And now that he's and snyder have finally learned there lesson about giving away draft picks *knock on wood* it will be fun to see what they can actually pull out of the draft with almost a full complement of picks next year.

Pale malts, I get it now. My wife was an exchange student Down Under in the late 80's. She lived in a little town called Tamworth. Apparently, it was the Country Music Capital of Australia. She keeps bugging me to go back because she's convinced that if she doesn't see Ayre's Rock again before she dies that her spirit will end up in limbo or something. Good thing the Pope got rid of limbo a couple of months back.

So the reason I asked about the Brit thing was that the Saranac Pale Ale that I'm drinkin says at the bottom of the Growler bottle that it's a "classic top fermented English Ale." Whatever the f*&^ it is, I like it, "I like it a lot." Also says it's "the spirit of the Adirondacks". I love upstate New York. Except those f-ing chairs.

I've said it before though (did a guest blog on it actually) making your teammates answer questions for you is bad juju. I know they love him. Especially the guys from the U, but I'd get sick of fighting his battles for him.

He is a great athlete, though and I hope Portis is right. I like, as an english teacher, that Grilliams has no shame about using the word "better" to top the superlative "best".

My understanding is that Marshall will be used in 3rd down situations as a cover/blitzing OLB. He is a hybrid safety anyway and, IMO, was out of position all last year.

He'll come in for Rocky as he is awful in coverage. Just ask Todd Heap. Dude made Rocky look like he was asleep.

I have TOTALLY embraced it. That's the funniest part.

As you know, Nate, I am "The Mayor". So, this weekend, I decided to change things up a little. I was a little down, so I switched everything: different coffee shop, different bar, hit on girls who weren't my type, didn't drink any booze, the whole deal. Even my clothes were different than usual. Anyway, everywhere I went, I kept running into tourists and generally lost people. And, as it turns out, I've been here so long, I actually do know everywhere to go. Pretty much the entire weekend, I was guiding people around: condo shoppers, old folks looking for a good steak house, young folks looking for a decent club, etc.

Now, my biggest beef with Northwest people is how cold and aloof they are. They more or less keep to themselves all the time, albeit with a friendly smile. "Nice, but not friendly". Yuck.

So, it seems my whole purpose in Seattle is to bring the "nice and friendly" routine to town.

One more thing: that coffee shop is now my new favorite coffee shop, and I've been going back constantly. It's not even a Starbucks.

Frostburg State U is my alma mater, so I have very mixed feelings about camp being there. It was a great opportunity for me to come back to my U and see my team. But it was a bad fit from the beginning. It rains a lot up here (very Seattlish, actually). The dorms were crappy and the athletic facilities are dated and it's a million mile from nowhere. I love it here, but it's the sticks.

Let's just say that Dennis Rodman would have liked Utah more.

I came to camp while they were here and got to go to my old haunts and ultimately it's what convinced me to move back. it is a great place to raise kids and close enought that I get to most terps home games and at least one Skins game per season.

I know why the team went back to Ashburn and why the locals were upset. Let's just put it that way.

Camp was more personal here, though. Darrell Green stepped on my foot here and I got to have half hour conversation with Sonny Jurgenson and Charles Mann just because they were so bored and had nothing else to do.

Nate,

not much to tell. I was at camp in, hmmm... I think 1999, and yes we partied like it was said date, and were waiting outside the locker room to see Rod Milstead, who graduated with my my wife from Lackey High in Indian Head, MD. By were, I mean me and my bubba-in-law. And out came Darrell about 15 minutes before practice. He snuck around the autograph hounds completely unnoticed and then started to runfor the practice field. I saw him and turned into his path involuntarily whereupon he stepped on my foot and apologized profusely. I was easily six inches taller than he and I'm 6'2". He jogged off and left me to stammer, "No pppprroblem, Mr. Ggggreen."

Rod was a former student of my father-in-law and blew my bubba-in-law off when he saw us. I got to know him better when I taught and coaced at McDonough High and he at Lackey. Rod could have taken a few lessons on etiqutette from Darrell. Nuff said there.

Man, I'm torqued. I think it's time to sleep.

Nate and P, good catchin' up. I promise not to be a stranger so much.

kost, keep spellin s*** with a "u" and get to Uluru.

Frostburg rulz... OK, not so much, but it's not too bad either.

Hail to my team, I love you guys.

LB jr. is actually going to wake up soon. I can feel it.

Pale Ale is not really pale. And Adirondack chairs suck. Darrell, I hold no grudges about the foot thing. Rod Milstead is a hose-head and the Pogues and all other Irish types are the coolest.

There's your summary for the evening, gentleman.

Cead mile failte.

Hey Nate, I'd be willing to see the Pogues as well. Let me know the dates and place...

Change things up. That's my mantra. :-)

Larry Bubba, may the pillow rise to meet you...

Diddy, the Pogues are playing October 17 -- a Wednesday, which is odd, but I'm taking Thur-Fri off to stretch it into a long family weekend, our last road trip before the new baby comes. The venue is a place I'm not familiar with, the Fenix, in the vicinity of Pioneer Square. Weird, I know. Tix are a wee expensive, so they should still be available.

I just remembered that you have a proclivity for bands named "The [somethings]". So I shoulda known.

I just got home from the cinema... saw "ONCE".

opened a bottle of Shiraz and wanted to tell everyone what a great flick it is.

Nathaniel!! My main man.

You have to run to the theater to see "Once" if you haven't already.

And if you have already, why didn't you mention it to me?

OK, this is a Skin's blog, but wft (sjk), we've been everywhere in the last few months and this movie knocked my d*ck in the dirt.

I'm headed to Amazon to buy the soundtrack.

did anybody else hear that the kid who threw the 755 pitch was suspended for 15 games in the minors?

for steroid use?

is that what's meant by "irony"?

Bonds is out of the game. Once he won't bat again he becomes a liability.

Willie is that an Aussie Shiraz? Maybe a Barossa Valley? I love that Valley.

Redskin Willie - Just checked it out on IMDB, looks pretty good, 8.6/10!

Posted by: Redskin Willie | August 7, 2007 12:58 AM | Report abuse

Smack, it's a South African Shiraz, from Neil Ellis. But I'll try to make a note of Barossa Valley.

I headed to the local super the other day and had the wine steward select 6 bottles that were 10 bucks or less. So far, the Shiraz is my favorite.

Of course, I haven't opened either of the two Montepulciano's i purchased. For my taste buds, that's the best 8 buck wine i can find.

Keep in mind, folks, i've only had part of one glass, so this is comin' at ya about as sober as ol' Willie gets.

Man i loved that flick...

Which winery on that Shiraz?

Posted by: P Diddy | August 7, 2007 1:07 AM | Report abuse

I'm a huge fan of a good Shiraz or a good Barolo. Mmmmmm.

There's a new Italian joint down the street from me that has a great selection of inexpensive, stellar Italian wines. I've been learning a lot about different varietals and regions.

Italy and Australia...apart from the good ol U S of A, my two favorite countries.

Posted by: P Diddy | August 7, 2007 1:09 AM | Report abuse

Never had a bad Barossa, Willie. McLaren Vale is nice too. Love that Vale! Still recall my tour of Groot Constantia in 1977. South African wine is vastly underrated.

Posted by: SMACK | August 7, 2007 1:12 AM | Report abuse

TOTALLY agree, SMACK. Some of those South African wines are incredible.

Posted by: P Diddy | August 7, 2007 1:14 AM | Report abuse

PD,

I think if you asked most Americans which country they'd most like to visit, Australia would finish real close to Number One.

Two things make a great wine, in my humble opinion.

The first is obvious. The second is affordability.

What difference does it make how good a bottle o' grape is if real people can't scratch up the bucks to buy some?

I would say that's a rhetorical question, but i can't pronounce the word, much less spell it.

P, is that one L in Barolo or two?

Posted by: Redskin Willie | August 7, 2007 1:18 AM | Report abuse

I think there are good and bad wines at all price points. I went to a restaurant a few weeks ago and struck out on every single wine I purchased, and they were all over $50. 5 for 5 in stinky wines.

I then went to the aforementioned Italian place and had one of the best wines in my life for $7 a glass.

You never know, which is part of the fun, I suppose.

Of course, I am FAR from a wine snob. I don't know squat about wine.

Are we at a million posts yet?

One "l" in Barolo.

yes, P, you were supposed to say "Millionth!!!", but like most of life, it's all about the timing and the moment has passed.

Posted by: Redskin Willie | August 7, 2007 1:21 AM | Report abuse

The grape is a beautiful thing. It really tells the tale of recent history.

We no longer need to rely on France and Italy and Spain. Australia, South Africa, and Chile are kicking ass. The more the grape suffers, the better it tastes.

The good news is soon wine will be cheaper than gas.

Thanks for putting up with me skins fans.

Posted by: SMACK | August 7, 2007 1:23 AM | Report abuse

P, sorry about the serious stack o' fun tickets ya blew at the restaurant, but nice to know ya finally scored on the way home.

And what's to know about wine?

It's like guitars, golf clubs, and girls. Only totally different.

With guitars, golf clubs, and girls, you have to get your hands on 'em before ya know if ya like 'em.

With wine, it's more about the tongue. I mean palate. Sorry, not tongue. Palate.
Palate.

I don't speak for Skins fans Smack. But speakin' strictly for myself, the onliest thing i can think about ya that i don't like is that yer a Cowboys fan.
And speakin' strickly for m' damn self, most of the 'boys fans I've met in my time on the planet have been reasonably fine human becomings.
The point is, you always conduct yourself better on here than a lot of the b**tlicks that call themselves Skins fans.

And i'd be proud to call ya a friend.

Love a goos Shraz and love the Pogues. Is McSowan still alive? Saw a crazy documentary on him a few years back that seeemd to indicate he was well on the way to drinking himself to death.

Posted by: Jason La Canfora | August 7, 2007 8:34 AM | Report abuse

I thought Shane was dead in the early 90's after leaving the Pogues, but then he came out with one great solo record (and another middling one).

I guess they thought about reuniting for years but the other guys were wary of Shane's, er, issues derailing the whole thing. But for the past four years or so they have gotten together for very successful reunion shows, usually around the Xmas holidays and of course Saint Paddy's day.

Three of the shows I saw were incredible, and during the fourth one Shane was a drunken mess so it was less musically pleasing and more of a circus.

Interesting movie tip, Willie, on 'Once.' I don't get to the movies very frequently, but I'll keep an eye on that... maybe a Netflix candidate.
