Monday Night Football

Leave a comment

Was that not a GREAT Monday Night Football game?  Also the city looked GREAT on ESPN, except for the few shots where they used stock video and the MODIS sign was still on the building downtown where it clearly has been changed to Wells Fargo.

Our Defense really played like their lives depended on it, and shut the Baltimore Ravens down.
Take that Ray Lewis, with your little gay dance.  Jags 12 Ravens 7.

It’s time for another edition of…..Ask Fishbowljax.  Don’t forget if you have questions you can email them to: Fishbowljax@gmail.com. 

 

What is your favorite local media?

 

I really miss the days of Tom Wills and Debroah Gianolis. (I think I spelled that right)

 

They were top notch. Channel 4 has always had my attention when it comes to news.  Now that CBS 47 shit looks like a high school TV class.  Dawn Lopez needs to go to a bigger market and get the hell outta there.

 

For print media goes.    I love Folio weekly!!!  They have the balls (like FishbowlJax) to tell it like it is. Wait… maybe we should do something together…. Hmmmmm.    Does the Florida Star still exsist???

 

 I also like the MetroJacksonville , and urban Jax websites. 

 

Why does FishbowlJax always seem to “hate”?

 

Hate is such a strong word….  I hate?  I think we just say the shit that no one wants to bring up or say…

 

What is your favorite part of Jacksonville?

 

Good one…   I don’t really have ONE favorite part.  Since Jax is the largest city (land wise) we have EVERYTHING.   If I want to go to the beach I can.  If I want to go to the country and ride horses… I can.   If I want to live that urban city lifestyle I can but a condo at the Strand on the river.   Anything you want is here is this city/county.

So Mayor Alvin Brown is in Brazil with Governor Rick Scott…  “we are securing future jobs, business for Jax port, blah, blah, blah…”

 Here at FishbowlJax….  we know why men go to Brazil…    LOL…

 If we were mayor, I don’t think we would have missed the Monday Night Football game… would you???

Hmmmmmm….

This week has been pretty eventful down at old Everbank Field.

Let’s forget about how the nation will be watching us on Monday night as we play in the first of two ESPN Monday Night Football games this year.  Let’s also forget about the little 1-6 record.  Our team is under achieving and coach Jack Del Rio is on the hot seat……   (I can’t wait to hear the shit the ESPN crew has to say about us.)

This week we re-signed WR Mike Sims-Walker after he was released by the Rams on Monday. Now this is actually a good move since the Rams are on the hook for his salary this year.  I think we are paying him the league minimum.  I hope he knows that most players don’t get second chances on the NFL….  He better catch EVERYTHING that is thrown his way.

Also, it came to light this week that former QB David Garrard has a herniated-disc in his back that obviously he has had for some time.  His agent has “put it in the atmosphere” that the Jaguars knew about it, and released him because they didn’t want to pay him $500k per week to sit on the bench/recover.

Now perception is reality, and I don’t know if the team knew about this injury, BUT…….   it’s mighty coincidental that in the pre-season, they sat David for at least one of the games because of back issues…

I have 1 word for you.  Jaguars.

Well that’s not really a question, but I’m going to assume you want the FishbowlJax’s thoughts on the team.   In a nut shell, it’s our home team so we will ride or die for them BUT….

 It was totally fucked up how they released David Garrard at the start of the season, and honestly we think that’s why the season is going this way.   Blaine Gabbert is a total diamond in the ruff, and our future is secure, but this season…. Not so much.

 

 Do you think Able Harding should have resigned?

 Hell No!!!   we have met Able on more than a few occasions, and understand totally how politics works, but a DUI is not a murder charge.  Let the man pay his fine, and continue on.  Now if it was his 3-4th DUI then that’s a different story.  We think mayor Alvin Brown asked him to step down because he didn’t want any negative press so early in his administration.

 

 What makes you  stay in Jacksonville vs going to a big city like NYC or LA?

 Well first of all…  about half of the FishbowlJax staff have worked/lived in “Major” markets.   Speaking for myself, the cost of living in major markets are extremely HIGH.  Of course the salaries are higher as well, but I love Duval county.  I moved to L.A. but between the earthquakes, smog and gang violence there is no place I would rather be.  Once again… just like Blain Gabbert… Jacksonville is a diamond in the ruff…

 

What do you think about the Lex and Terry situation?

Hmmm…  I think they got a raw deal coming back in this market on a “sports” station. Sure they had/have a following but coming back on an AM was not good.  Then they weren’t really promoted well.  Jacksonville Radio just sucks ass anyway.

 

Is Alvin Brown good mayor?

 It’s honestly too early to answer that.  He has made some good decisions, but it’s too early to see if he is just all talk….

I hate that out home team Jacksonville Jaguars have started this season off with just 1 win, but today we get some answers..

Former QB David Garrard announced today that he has a herniated disc in his back and will get surgery this week.  Was that the reason he was playing so poorly during the preseason???

Also former WR Mike Sims-Walker was released from the Rams today.  That’s what happens when you can’t catch the ball.  So I guess Jaguar GM Gene Smith was right in letting him go.

 

Lets just all pray to the football Gods that we can have a good game…..  and maybe even a victory on Monday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens.

How you been???

Hello Everyone…..  We have been sitting and simmering for the last few weeks, and we have decided to tweek our site, and content. 

 

First of all we want to thank all of you who check FISHBOWLJAX on a daily basis.  We want to become a daily site that has a different point of view.  Let me change that. We WILL become a site with a different point of view.  We would really like to get our FACEBOOK and TWITTER pages a bit more active as well.  (of course click either word to go to that page and join us) 

 

We will continue to bring you the Duval gossip, but we are opening up the content to you the reader.   Please feel free to email us questions, comments, and we will do our best to answer them. 

 

Of course this is a poor man’s version of the old Jaguar.com column “Ask Vic”.  Sure they have the new guy John O doing the “O-Zone”, but it’s just not he same as “Ask Vic”…….

 

If you are a FISHBOWLJAX newbie, just know that we are nowhere near politically correct.  Some may get offended, but hey….  We speak the truth!!

 

Our email is FISHBOWLJAX@gmail.com  and once again you can also join us on FACEBOOK or TWITTER….   Plus they are wide open 24/7 and 365 days of the year.
