Ginn Named Honorary Gramatica

Lost in the shuffle of Florida's domination over Ohio State was the fact that Ted Ginn Jr. was injured during his touchdown celebration. Not that it was completely Ginn’s fault, but it just goes to show the stupidity of players celebrating by tackling each other. Has anybody ever understood that practice? The surprising thing in all of this is that this wasn’t a bigger story. (Not that Ginn would have made much of a difference with Troy Smith channeling his inner Aaron Brooks. The Buckeyes couldn't have done worse if they were coached by Joe Paterno in drag.)

But the question of the day is which celebration injury is the bigger bone-head move; Ginn and teammates or Bill Gramatica celebrating a field goal?

Any time estimate on when THN is going to get over the BCS and move on? The Angels next disappointing season is just around the corner!

I hear that. Two weeks ago I couldn't get a wager on either the Rose Bowl or the BCS. Now he's behaving like the midget in High Plains Drifter after Eastwood made him sheriff.

Hey, what about me? Granted, my injury actually probably helped my team.

Biggest bonehead celebration of all time still belongs to Gus Frerotte for head butting that wall.

Yeah, THN never harps over stuff.

Worst celebration in sports history is the city of Detroit going DEFCON-5 after winning back-to-back NBA Championships in 1990.

i'll vote for gramatica, if nobody else will. self-inflicted. self-inflicted.

Ginn didnt do anything dangerous or actively celebratory. Rory Hall should be blamed, if anything, for pulling him down awkwardly.

Well seeing that some people felt that Ohio State and Michigan were even, the astute gambler didn't play the Rose Bowl and instead used the results to determine the winner of the BCS Championship game, as we alluded to in the Post Mortem.

It's the same as using a push and pull progression system and cashing out after hitting a $75 natural.

Here's some red paint, Adam. You and your friends start painting these buildings.
