  1. Well, if and when you retire Pat, I will have to admit ”things do happen in 3’s.” Because for me, being a local and growing up here in Hogtown my entire life (minus 2 years in Clearwater, FL. in the awesome 80’s) it was Jack Hairston, then Mike ”Mickey Mouse” Bianchi, and thirdly you, Pat Dooley (and your sidekick, Robbie, can’t forget him). And sadly I can honestly say, I don’t know if anyone could replace the 3 (+Robbie) of you. Maybe Jeff Cardozo, lol. But I do enjoy Jeff “Yea, I love to do commercials” Cardoza.

    • I suspect there aren’t a lot of journalists who has a vote for both the AP poll and the Heisman. He’s well respected within his profession to command top notch guests on his podcast. We are fortunate to have him. Hope he sticks around a long time.

        • If that’s the case, then I’m full of crap. He’s not perfect and I don’t always agree with him. I’ve criticized what he’s said or his work before but hopefully, I haven’t criticized him as a person. I have a lot of respect for him but I’m not sure he belongs in Hebrews 11.

          • Old friend, you are one of the few people short of Hebrews 11 that I would rate crapless, and that’s no crap!

            I give Dooley a 10 out of 10 for writing style, and reserve other judgements knowing that people who live in houses built of crap shouldn’t sling crap themselves. I do opine in lessor moments regarding motives, but that’s just me.
