Anchor Man
Jun 22, 2018 - 4:09 PM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- Fans of the NFL Draft are aware that the last man taken in the annual pro football meat market is dubbed “Mr. Irrelevant.” The “winning team” makes a big deal out of it and the player so chosen usually gets more publicity than many of the guys taken in earlier rounds.

Younger UD fans might not realize that in 1976 Dayton’s own Kelvin Kirk, a wide receiver and local product from Dunbar HS, was crowned “Mr. Irrelevant.” Kelvin was selected by the Pittsburgh... [Read More]

Anthony Bourdain
Jun 11, 2018 - 1:23 PM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- Here’s the thing about Anthony Bourdain: like many of the foods he sampled in his worldwide travels, Bourdain was himself, an acquired taste. He wore an almost constant goofy smirk that initially made one’s douche meter start to register, but then he gradually pulled you in. His TV efforts in their various iterations on Food Network, Travel Channel and finally CNN were not food shows per se; nor were they travel programs and they certainly were... [Read More]

This and That

Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- These right here are what you call the “dog days of the off-season.” Not a whole lot happening on the Flyer basketball front, altho AG is headed north of the border to assist Bill Self in coaching the USA Under 18 Team and then the UD Team Camp will be held June 23rd and 24th.

In the meantime, “FTS” scoured the internet and came up with some tasty tidbits to help us all kill some time:

-- Granted, it was mostly a forgettable campaign, but... [Read More]

Whither Kostas Antetokounmpo?
May 25, 2018 - 2:28 PM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) – There was mucho wailing and gnashing of teeth here in Flyerland when Kostas Antetokounmpo decided to withdraw from UD and enter his name for the upcoming NBA Draft. How dare he, after Bucky Bockhorn had finally figured out how to pronounce “Antetokounmpo!”

Let’s face it, UD doesn’t have a ton of history with basketball players leaving early for the NBA. The list consists of only one name:

Johnny Davis

“FTS” has... [Read More]

Ghost of Gifs 'R' Us
Apr 27, 2018 - 4:09 PM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- Following the Frankenstein naming convention I outlined in my last gif compendium (explained here: http://www.udpride.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31238) it is time for Ghost of Gifs ‘R’ Us, which is only fitting since Toys ‘R’ Us is no longer among the living.

You’re probably sitting there thinking ‘boy Swamp is mailing this one in’ but in actuality it takes a lot of time... [Read More]
