Count me in as one of those I-don’t-care-about-Barry individuals who didn’t pay an ounce of attention to his home run record. It was on TV one floor below in my house and there was no urge to watch him hit. It’s tainted — plain and simple.
Plus, it’s football season. As for Bison Media Day, a couple of observations:
–How Joe Mays did not win the status as the player with the best body composition is beyond me. Players were tested by a new machine called the "Bod Pod." The winner: walk-on receiver Kirk Felton.
–What a luxury to have an offensive line that is deep. It took five years for the Bohl staff to get there, but that goal has arrived.
–Once again, Bohl talked about a concern of depth in the defensive line. He needs a big year from the combination of Mike Brown and Matt Gratzek at defensive tackle. I see where Gratzek is up over 280 pounds. It also would be a good time for Nick Compton to provide a break-out year at d-end. Compton is probably the team’s best pass rusher and that’s saying something with Joe Lardinois on the other side.
–Phil Hansen has gone full circle. During his Super Bowl days, NFL players couldn’t stand questions like "what is your favorite meal?" Our Favorite Big Guy was asking those same questions on Tuesday.
–I’m not sure of the numbers but there was definitely a presence of more media members. Bohl’s press conference had to set a record for most questions asked, prompting the coach to ask if media folks have been saving up all summer.
–I have yet to render an opinion on the new uniforms. That will have to wait until game day.
