    Wonderlic scores should not be made public without a player’s permission. We in the media are in the business of reporting information, but it was nauseating that, as the draft drew closer, word leaked out last week via Pro Football Talk that prized LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne scored a four on his Wonderlic test.

    Claiborne reportedly has a learning disability, which might help explain why he scored so low on the 12-minute, 50-question multiple-choice test.

    Goodell sent out a memo last week threatening to discipline any team that leaks information regarding a player’s performance on the Wonderlic, and he was right to do it. What probably happened in Claiborne’s case was that a team within striking distance of obtaining Claiborne in the draft leaked the news in an attempt to dissuade other teams higher in the draft from taking him. Claiborne is going to be one of the top players taken, even with the news of his low Wonderlic. Causing him the embarrassment of posting one of the lowest possible scores on an aptitude test was unnecessary.

    Setting aside the privacy issues, can we PLEASE stop pretending that some these kids are “attending university”?

    Huckabee Show Opens With Staged Caller

    No one seemed to remember to give the call-in number to the audience until the very last few seconds of those first fifty minutes. But yet… presto!… within seconds, Mike Huckabee did in fact have a caller on the line! Without ever questioning how that caller could have gotten on that line in less time than it takes Obama to blame Bush for anything!

    The caller…”Mike from San Francisco”… was in fact not just your average Mike.

    Huckabee began this way:

    “Alright, we’re going to go to the phone lines and we’ve got a call from Mike in San Francisco. Welcome to the Mike Huckabee Show, Mike.”

    What did “Mike” have on his mind? He started this way:

    “Well Governor, let me start by saying it’s great to have a different opinion and a different person on the radio and I’m very, very happy that you’re doing this radio show. One of the reasons why I want to listen to your program every day is because you ran for office and you’ve been a politician, you have a different perspective I think.”
    ————————————--

    In fact, “Mike from San Francisco” turned out after some digging to be one Mike McVay, the senior vice president of programming for… wait for it… the Cumulus Media Network. None of which was acknowledged on the air by either “Mike from San Francisco” or, more to the point, Mike Huckabee.

    Classy!

    Huck the Schmuck…

    @ Bumr50:
    @ Mike C.:

    I never could see what anyone saw in Huckabee; bad candidate, bad TV host and now a bad radio host. So he thinks he’s going to “take Rush out”, eh? Like Rush or not, there are a lot of dead bodies littering that road.

    @ MacDuff:

    It will be interesting to see how the show does.

    I’ve had friendly disagreements about the number of folks on the right who subscribe to Huckabee’s brand of Republicanism.

    I don’t think there’s much of a market demand for him.

    Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen didn’t take long to
    step in it. The other day he said, “I love Castro”
    In Miami!
    After he managed the White Sox to the 2005 World Series
    Champoinship, he returned to his native Venezuela.
    He took the Series trophy with him & visited Hugo
    Chavez to show it to him.
    His mother is part of the anti Hugo opposition!

    Clinton, Huckabee, who knew being governor of friggin’ Arkansas was such a springboard to the big time?

    I remember when baseball was a hotbed of American patriotism. I’m feeling older by the day.

    Hey! Remember when I asked you if you were in the “Clinton Airport” a few weeks back?

    Voila!

    Someone must’ve been listening…

    When Guillen had the White Sox, it was passed off
    to Ozzie bieng Ozzie. Now he has taken it too far.
    The new taxpayer paid for stadium sits in Litte
    Havana in Miami.
    Really a stupid move for Guillen.

    Athletes and politics rarely mix well.

    I remember last NFL season Arian Foster was hurt one week so they brought him into one of the network’s sports desks. Rather than talk football, he managed to praise OWS.


  27. 27 | April 10, 2012 8:12 am

    @ MacDuff:
    Figure on it being about at LEAST 50% of all budgets in 5 years after it’s implemented. You better hope the SCOTUS strikes down that law.

    Too stupid to realize that as a pro football player he is the 1%? Someone should relieve that fool of his money…

    True & Ozzie Guillen seems to keep crossing the line.
    In 05 the White Sox won the World Series for the first
    time in 86 years. My life long fan father never saw it.
    On parade day Ozzie was on the podium with the Venzuelan
    flag draped over his sholder by pitcher Freddie Garcia,
    another Venezuelan native.
    Hey the are the Chicago white Sox, not the Caracas
    White Sox. People were unhappy.
