Does Ray Ratto owe favors to UW? - 09-12-2011, 12:15 PM

Had the huskies 14th! in his poll, and had the Ducks 23rd. Those were the highest and lowest votes for those two schools.

I would guess he was drunk and reversed them by mistake. Although 23rd is too high for the Mutts.

He feels a kinship to them because he, too, has always been referred to as "Husky".

Great line I heard on the radio - 09-12-2011, 03:26 PM

He was talking with Kuiper about some Giant who sliced his hand trying to separate frozen hamburger patties, and they got into a discussion about cooking for one's family. (Ratto says he doesn't cook). Kuiper said, "that would never happen to you, Ray." Ratto replied, "No, I don't see why you'd cook hamburgers when there's a Burger King on every corner." Kuiper: "No, I meant you would never separate them; you'd just eat them all."

Beat writers are incompetant - 09-12-2011, 04:59 PM

Example 1 is RR

Better to have analysts that actually know what they are doing voting.
