But I digress.

Yeah he called me. I mean we weren't like buddies or anything. He was friends with a couple of co-workers that I was also friends with and he would call to find out where the party was that night, or to let us know. So yeah he called me at work one day

Smootsmack: Hello
Rod Gardner: Yo SmootSmack (not my real name)! What's up? It's Rod Gardner. Dre gave me your number
SS: Hey, how's it going?
Rod: Cool, cool. Yo I'm hittin' up Club Scud (not a real place) Friday with Chris (Samuels) and Tre (Johnson). We've got about 20 friends coming with us. Let your boy know (had a friend who ran parties at clubs down in DC). You gonna be there?
SS: Maybe. (of course, 95% of the time I'd see him downtown he compeletly ignored me). I'm working late tonight, trying to get out of here as soon as possible though.
Rod: I got you. I'm just waiting for this team meeting to end
SS: You're in a meeting? Damn, let me let you go then
Rod: Nah, you know how coach is, he's cool. It's alright. I know what I gotta do (thing is, he usually did, but what a terrible example). Plus, I can hear him out my other ear anyway
SS: Yeah, I gotta run Rod. I'll talk to you later
Ha. Funny story. Good stuff.

BTW, Club Scud is a real place. I make it rain up in there all the time.

LOL, the most I have ever done is shake Rock Cartwright's hand through the chain linked fence outside of the player's parking lot at FedEX. It was more like a 3 finger tap. He really wasn't into it.

What you do alone in your room at night is really of no interest to the rest of us.

I said hello to Charles Mann one time at a Terps basketball game (back when they actually won games) when I was an undergrad at Maryland. I also met Mark Rypien (sp?) when he came to visit my school, I think I must have been in 7th or 8th grade.

Re: Sometimes Its Who You Keep Not Who You Sign

Would've, could've, should've. I'm not losing sleep over Clark. We messed up with Archy but in the process we ended up drafting LaRon. I mean, for almost a season we had the best safety combo in league with LaRon and Sean.

Still, props to Clark for working hard and getting to where he is. Nuff respect and that hit he laid on that Ravens receiver to seal the deal was vicious, vicious!

Sure thing. It's a shame really, because Spurrier has a great football mind. But he just wasn't cut out I guess to be an NFL head coach. I had never seen such disorder in my life as compared to those two years he was coaching the Redskins. He didn't care, many of the players didn't care. It was a mess. Turner was a bit of a mess too, but at least he tried. And the players weren't as unruly under him. Under Spurrier, that definitely wasn't the case.

Anyway, as for Clark. saden's right

I wonder how Spurrier would work out as an offensive coordinator (not that he would ever dream of working for someone else!). If he could just draw it up and let the HC run the team, it sounds like he could be pretty successful.

Re: Sometimes Its Who You Keep Not Who You Sign

Rod Gardner was such a waste of talent. If the guy devoted just half the amount of energy to football that he did with partying he could have been a hell of a WR.

Re: Sometimes Its Who You Keep Not Who You Sign

There is a great column by Wilbon in last Thursday's Post talking about Clark and his observations about the differences between how Pgh does things and how the Skins do things. It speaks volumes about why Pgh is consistently successful and the Skins arent. Basically its the culture the ownership has created in both teams.
