Oh boy...do I remember these meetings!

And not with fondness I might add. I am also not done with these types of encounters by any stretch of the imagination. As a consultant, these are fairly frequent. The difference is I now charge fees for this type of mind-bending experience. This is classic.

Knowshon Moreno to Dolphins

It's official. We had brought him in for a tryout and he is now a Miami Dolphin. Knowshon signed a one year deal said to be worth about 3 million. I'm on the fence about this move. Our running game was pretty lousy last year and he's a solid back with good receiving skills who is also pretty good at picking up the blitz, but I'm not sure that he will make that much difference. I hope I am wrong and that he has a stellar season. That would be good for the Dolphins and good for him to shore up his stock after the one year deal runs out. The motivation is certainly there. Let's see how he performs without an all world quarterback at the helm.

Dick Bove on Citigroup

"Sell, sell, sell..." is his message. Watch him here as he calls the Mexican situation a "horror show." He is of course referring to the lack of controls in Banamex which allowed 400 million U.S. dollars to essentially walk out the door. Also in the news today, the Fed rejected Citi's request to raise its dividend stating that the Fed's latest stress test shows the bank needs to shore up its plan to weather the next economic downturn.

Foot Golf

Are you a ball golfer, as we disc golfers refer to you as? Are you a soccer player? What happens when you combine the two sports? You get foot golf. As a former soccer player myself this looks like an absolute blast to me! I can't wait to try it.
