Who didn't see this coming? It was a head scratcher from day one when the Buccaneers used their second round pick on Roberto Aguayo in the 2016 NFL Draft. Sure, reliable kicking can be hard to find, but unless they are a franchise changing kicker with a cannon for a leg (see: Sebastian Janikowski), there's no reason to use a draft pick, let alone an early round pick on a kicker. They're not even real football players, so in a way it's a crock of shit that they're even eligible for the draft.
Hopefully the rest of the NFL learns from the Bucs' mistake and in turn, kicking gets phased out of the game. Go watch soccer if you wanna see 5'8" 135lb men kick stuff. I'll stick to my 6'7" 285lb tight end colliding with a linebacker and a healthy dose of CTE.
Welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. August is now upon us as football season is less than a month away. The NFL preseason kicked off earlier this week with the Cowboys beating the Cardinals in the Hall of Fame game (glad to see they got their field paint situation sorted out) and the college football season gets started in just 3 short weeks. So sit tight folks, pretty soon you’ll have another reason to get out of bed on the weekends besides some blogger’s weekly posts about nothing. But for now, you’re stuck with me, so sit back, relax and enjoy.
Will this dude ever learn? Vontaze Burfict wasn’t passed on by all other teams in the 2012 NFL Draft because he’s not talented. He could be one of the best linebackers in the NFL. The other 31 teams in the NFL were smart enough not to draft him because of shit like this.
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. Today is National Chicken Wing Day, which is easily one of the top 3 greatest holidays of the year. Please celebrate responsibly. And if you’re eating hot wings, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before you wipe your eyes or use the restroom. That’s just a little pro tip from me. And while you’re getting mentally prepared for the fury you’re about to unleash on some chicken wings, check out today’s Wake Up With Whitty and let me know what you think.
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’re coming to the end of one of the low-key greatest weeks of the year. Wednesday was National Hot Dog Day and Friday was National Junk Food Day. Holy hell, what a glorious time to be alive. I’m probably going to have heartburn for the next three weeks now, which is just the body’s way of reminding you that you’re living life to the fullest. Or fattest, I forget which. So if you celebrated these glorious holidays as hard as I did, pop some Tums and enjoy this edition of Wake Up With Whitty. Continue reading →
Good morning and welcome another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. This past week we celebrated the 241st birthday of the United States of America (happy belated birthday America!!), which was promptly followed by the longest three work days of the year. There’s nothing worse than heading back to the office after a mid-week holiday, especially when half of your co-workers probably took the rest of the week off. For those of us that powered through the post-Independence Day hangover, this weekend couldn’t have gotten here soon enough. What better way to start it off than by reading my ramblings about random topics from the past week? So kick back, relax and enjoy this edition of Wake Up With Whitty!
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake up With Whitty. We’re just a couple weeks into that dreaded summer sports lull, but the NHL and NBA have provided us with plenty of excitement to keep us on the edge of our seats. I know nobody wants to have to think for themselves this early in the morning, so let me go ahead and do the thinking for you. Then once you’ve had a chance to wake up a bit, feel free to come back and tell me why I’m wrong. Continue reading →
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Thank you for joining me for another edition of Wake Up With Whitty, where I give you a few interesting tidbits from the week that’s passed.
