Tools

By Adam Bagni

HEY EVERYONE WELCOME INTO SPORTS… WELL WHEN NICK SABAN FIRST SIGNED ON AT ALABAMA… THERE WAS A LOT OF WHOOPLA OVER HIS SALARY… 8 YEARS AND 32 MILLION DOLLARS… IS IT WAY TOO MUCH?… IS HE WORTH THAT AMOUNT?... WELL REGARDLESS… AS OF TODAY… HE’S NOT THE HIGHEST PAID COACH IN THE S-E-C ANYMORE…///

THAT DISTINCTION GOES TO FLORIDA’S URBAN MEYER WHO FINALIZED A 6-YEAR… 24 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT TODAY… THAT WOULD KEEP HIM IN GAINSVILLE THROUGH THE 20-14 SEASON… THE DEAL MAKES HIM THE THIRD HIGHEST PAID COACH IN THE COUNTRY BEHIND PETE CARROL OF U-S-C AND CHARLIE WEIS OF NOTRE DAME… THE GATORS HEAD MAN WILL MAKE 4 MILLION DOLLARS ANNUALLY… WHILE SABAN IS SET TO MAKE A PALTY 3.9 MILLION FOR THE 2009 SEASON…///

MEANWHILE… MOST OF US HAVE THOSE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES… THAT WILL DO ANYTHING FOR US… OUR NUMBER ONE FANS IF YOU WILL… FOR DENNY HAMLIN… THAT’S HIS GRANDMOTHER… THE 91 YEAR OLD NEVER MISSED A RACE ON TV… AND ALWAYS WATCHED WHILE SPORTING HER NUMBER 11 SOCKS AND MATCHING TEDDY BEAR… THREE DAYS AGO THOUGH… SHE PASSED AWAY… BUT FOR SOME REASON… NO ONE FEELS LIKE SHE MISSED WHAT HAPPENED TODAY AT POCONO…///

HER GRANDSON… GETTING IT DONE… HAMLIN WINNING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 50 RACES… ALBEIT WITH A HEAVY HEART… THE RACE WAS MOVED TO TODAY BECAUSE OF RAIN YESTERDAY… IN VICTORY LANE AN EMOTIONAL HAMLIN SAID QUOTE… WE DEFINITELY HAD SOME ANGELS WITH US TODAY…///

VERY COOL STORY… FINALLY BRAVES ARE ON THE WEST COAST… SO WE’LL HAVE A RE-CAP ON-LINE AT A-B-C 32 DOT COM… AND THAT’LL DO IT… I’M ADAM BAGNI… SEE YA TOMORROW… GUYS
