REAR ENTRIES: Late-Round Picks Are Interesting

Don't fear Cody Grimm
DEKODA WATSON: A short feature story on Dekoda Watson. At this point, the Tribune should just have a boilerplate story about small FSU linebackers ready to go each year. This one talks about his regrets in the FSU cheating scandal:

“I just followed directions, but wrong is wrong is wrong,” he said. “Some people will say I should have stood up for what is right. I admit I was wrong; I admit my fault. I should have stood up for what is right, but I didn’t and I don’t have anybody to blame but myself.”

Every time I go to beat up on a guy for something he did, he goes and admits he was wrong and takes full responsibility. How am I supposed to make a story out of that?

CODY GRIMM: Some Virginia Tech blog decided to dub Cody Grimm the “Deathbacker“, which this blog describes as so:

In a 4-3 under the deathbacker sits even farther outside the tackle and is used as a freelance sower of chaos…

The nickname caught on for Grimm even though it’s kind of hokie (ba dum bum). But since he’s going to be a safety for the Bucs, someone will need to come up with a new nickname. How about “The guy that finally replaced Sabby‘s overpursuing ass and forced him to do bareback gay porn to make rent”. It’s not quite as catchy as “deathbacker”, but if you use small enough letters you can still fit it on a T-shirt.

ERIK LORIG: Here’s an interview with Erik Lorig done before his senior year. He grew up in the Los Angeles area, where his interests were “surfing and sort of other things in the area.” He says it coyly, like he wants you to ask him, “Oooh, what other things?” And then he’s supposed to say something that implies that he likes chasing pussy (or cock, I’m not here to judge) or smoking tons of weed or something like that without actually saying it because he’s too cool to come right out and say it. Isn’t that right, Erik? You sound like a halfway nice guy, but you’re really kind of a pretentious douche, aren’t you?

Being able to be called the Grimm Reaper isn’t enough? We have to to try to force ‘deathbacker’ in there? Meh.

Well if Grimm can just not suck I welcome him to the team.

Well, there goes any sympathy I may have had for Lorig. His name made me think of a 9th century viking raiding the shores of England. His video makes me think of pretentious, douchy surfers. I hope he’s good enough to win back my sympathy.

Scott, you HAVE TO have a contest to come up with Sabby’s nickname. I nominate (even though he does not play linebacker) “The Fudgebacker”, staying true to his future career in gay porn.

Some one is stuck on steps 3 and 4 of the seven steps to greiving. Time to get on that upward turn and accept the loss of Sabby. One last grin to those biceps and shut the door. As for nicknames, how about Shabby Scabby?
