Wednesday Night Dawg Bites: SEC Media Days, Chick-fil-A, Alex Rodriguez, and Potter Stewart

I’m sure you’ve been following along, but, despite a dearth of both wireless internet and Chick-fil-A sandwiches, full coverage of SEC Media Days is available at Every Day Should Be Saturday, SB Nation, and Team Speed Kills, the latter of which has audio available here from last night’s podcast, which includes an extended appearance by yours truly. For the record, the show was taped after I got home from getting my rotator cuff examined but before I had the chance to fill the prescriptions I was given for painkillers and anti-inflammatories. You have been warned.

Some first-class would-be questions for SEC Media Days were posed here and here, to which I would now add one more: "Coach Meyer, isn’t your effort to appear hip by referring to people as ‘cats’ an obvious attempt to copy Mark Richt?" At least one good piece of advice came out of the league confab:

Saban says someone who coaches ten years in the SEC "deserves some kind of medal of honor." You hear that, Georgia fans?

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the blogosphere, some have mixed feelings about Alex Rodriguez’s pursuit of 600 career home runs. I have no such ambivalence; while there are, to put it mildly, limits on how admirable a player Rodriguez is, he isn’t as loathsome as Barry Bonds, so any milestone that puts another player---any other player---closer to breaking Bonds’s bogus record is a positive for baseball.

Beyond that, if you drop a Potter Stewart reference, you get a link from me.

Go ‘Dawgs!
