    In his Draft recap, reviewing the Cardinals' picks:

    "Calais Campbell (50) was taken to reproduce the pass-rush flash of Calvin Pace, and Early Doucet (81) lasted waaaaay too long after a starry career but groin-ravaged senior year at LSU."

    Good God. It rhymes, it's ridiculous, and it has the inanimate "year" getting ravaged by male genitalia.

    He also refers to Randy Cross as his "new BFF" in it. Huh?

    Peter King must've caught a virus from Bill Simmons.
  4. I predict "groin-ravaged" will be in the SportsJournalists.com style guide by the end of the year.
    Call me Kreskin.

    During the season, he referred to someone's performance as Favrian...

    This was pretty bad though...

    From Dr. Z's draft grades:


  8. Just wait, my friend.
    If nothing else, I am confident that, sooner or later, chef will cause it to be used extensively.

    Well, it's not pussy-eaten, that's for sure. We'll see. Of course, beetus' stylebook has to be unlocked first.

    If someone has to be groin-ravaged wouldn't it be Fred Taylor, or Ken Griffey Jr?

    I thought there might be a positive spin to put on that phrase. Something along the lines of 'Boy, I'd like to groin-ravage her...'

    Yeah, there's no positive spin there.
