Spring is (not) in the air

It's under 20 degrees today which can be expected for New Jersey in the middle of February. 

And yet teams are reporting for Spring Training.
 This 2015 Spring Fever LCS exclusive set is a fun set to collect.

I found this funny tweet that local radio nitwit Howard Eskin reported about Lawrence Mccutcheon being ready for Spring Training.
Cutch had a funny response which was a followup to the Phillies poking fun at Eskin

Of course there actually was a Lawrence Mccutcheon.

Mccutcheon was a 5 time Pro Bowl running back with the Los Angeles Rams.  He played with the,Rams from 1971 to 1979.  He also spent brief stints with the Broncos, Seahawks, and Bills.

Mccutcheon set a postseason record by rushing for 202 yards on 37 carries.

In Super Bowl 14 he threw a 24 yard pass.

So while Lawrence Mccutcheon is a real person, I doubt he will be playing Left Field for the Phillies this year.


  1. Funny! Hope Cutch is ready to go this year!

  2. I always get a good chuckle when people make careless mistakes involving social media... and that includes my own. It seems like I screw up at least once a month on my blog.

  3. i was a big fan of lawrence mccutcheon and had a 30 rams jersey back in 1978. in fact, i used to misspell andrew's last name as a result.
