While We’re Waiting: LeBron’s Decision, John Simon, Midfield Woes, and Hardesty

While We’re Waiting is a place to sulk and recover from saddening/maddening losses. If you’ve got some linkage for us, pass it along. We certainly appreciate the help.

LeBron’s gonna decide for LeBron: “Has this process sometimes led to mistakes? Of course it has. But James has no qualms with his belief system. One of his favorite things to say is that he doesn’t have any regrets about his major decisions. If he stays true to himself, he won’t have any regrets about this huge decision, either. Because he’s going to be the one to make it.” [Windhorst, PD]

On Montario Hardesty’s shot this year with the Browns: “The Browns have no regrets about drafting Hardesty. He did not hesitate in minicamp when he rushed through a crack in the line and he demonstrated he can catch the ball in traffic. He worked with the first team, particularly on goal line drills.”Β [The OBR]

“Why didn’t Benny Feilhaber and Maurice Edu start every game? For the third straight game Feilhaber came on as a second-half substitute, and for the third straight game Feilhaber made a major impact, helping the U.S. get what it needed (a second-half equalizer) when its back was against the wall. Think about this: If we were to borrow a statistic common to ice hockey, Feilhaber’s plus-minus rating was a whopping plus-three during this World Cup.” [Grant Wahl, SI.com]

“Exit light, enter night, take my hand, we’re off to John Simon land” [Rittenberg, ESPN.com]

  • MrCleaveland

    America were fun to watch.

  • Shamrock

    Just stick to baseball, basketball and our own version of football.

  • Cool story Shamrock. Just stick to being negative all the time.

  • lol@#3

    Good times.

  • JM

    Denny FTW

  • So Jay-Z was talking about LBJ on David Letterman. Jay-Z is part owner of the Nets, so isn’t that tampering?

  • Jay-Z did his best to not tamper, from most places that I’ve read about it, Matty. He just went “mmmm” to every question being forced on him by Letterman.

  • mgbode

    Letterman basically made Jay-Z sit there and take it because apparently Dave wants LeBron to stay in Ctown (it was hilarious to watch. and going back on it, makes some sense as Dave is a Pacer-fan and has said before that LeBron:Cavs = Reggie:Pacers)

    I don’t think Jay-Z is going back on Dave’s show anytime soon πŸ™‚

    I also love the snippets and order they were posted:

    LeBron = no regrets
    Hardesty = no regrets
    US Soccer = regrets

    Sounds about right.

  • Shamrock

    @3 who r u? My comment wasn’t negative I gave MY opinion. But since you felt the need to address me specifically you aren’t half as funny as you think. Now how do ya ‘dem apples? Don’t quit your day job!

  • Denny is almost as funny as he looks, which is quite an accomplishment.
    By the way, I saw “Get Him to the Greek” last night, it is a very funny movie.

  • Alex

    If you have nothing to say about soccer, Shamrock, why don’t you just actually say nothing about it?

  • Gren (not Glen)

    The more I hear about Hardesty the more I like. I swore I wouldn’t do that with another runningback until he produced on the field.

    *Looks at old Willie Green and Lee Suggs jerseys*

    For more than one season.

  • Who am I? My name’s right there at the bottom of the article, which I wrote about what I wanted to write about, since you didn’t send my any suggestions. I mean, to do that you’d have to step away from your internet anonymity – and who would want to do that?!

    Your comments across the board are negative. Just giving my opinion. And no, I’m not quitting my day job anytime soon. LOL OMG and snap!

  • mgbode

    But Denny, who would want to read about the World Cup? All the posts about World Cup matches are completely empty with noone bothering to even put one comment in there unless someone wanted to do one of those irritating “first” posts.

    Wait, no, that’s not right at all. Quite the opposite. Sorry, carry on.

  • I like your braces Shamrock.

  • mgbode, you’re thinking about the Indians posts.

  • I like how Denyn gave the famous line.

    “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?”

    Good stuff

  • I learned it from the really short king in Shrek. #shortheroes
