I don't often like piggybacking on First and 10, but this debate must continue.
Tiger vs. bear on a neutral floor, which animal wins?
We're talking grizzly bear vs. well-fed male Siberian tiger (they're the biggest, I believe). Plus, Siberian tigers are known to eat brown bear cubs in Russia's wilderness.
Like this video, I go with the bear. If only because of its size, and ability to keep the tiger at bay with swatting. Plus, a couple paw swats to the tiger's dome could spell concussion or brain hemorrhage.
I can't argue that the tiger is the badder of the two mammals. It's the largest of the big cats, has teeth that could pierce all the way through Rick Majerus and goes straight for the jugular. They're fast, hunt alone and are known to take down some pretty feisty prey like camels, deer, elk, boar and even elephants.
Bears, meanwhile, are mostly omnivores, polar aside. They've been cuteified by mainstream consumerism: gummy bears, Teddy bears, Paddington Bear, Smokey the Bear, Bear from American Wedding. With subspecies like panda and koala, how bad could these animals really be?
But I'll stick with grizzly, you? BTW, this debate is sort of like Kevin Love (grizzly bear) vs. Tyler Hansbrough (tiger), don't ya think?
On to the best four blogs ... around!
Lute Olson is back running the Arizona program and NaterB's Junk Drawer says good riddance to the black mark that was Kevin O'Neil. Everything I hear about O'Neil paints him as not just a horrid coach/assistant but a legitimate bad guy.
THE FANTASY LIFE's discussion on Laurence Maroney failed to convince In Love with the Game, Mom's View to play Fantasy football. While I love the game like I love salt water taffy, it's still no Fantasy baseball -- the ultimate of all Fantasies not named Elizabeth Hurley and/or Lisa Dergan.
My favorite (Twins) rant of the day belongs to Tangletown, USA. Not only does "he write the best blog on this website," he also referred to the Angels as the "Los Angeles Sacramento Angels of Northern San Jose County Municipal Janitors of Anaheim." That's a solid dig.
What did Dantheman4250's Sports Blog learn from Wednesday? That Memphis backup PG Andre Allen is suspended. I have a sneaky suspicion Gregg Doyel will be chiming in on this ... something about how if Derrick Rose goes down, oh, I won't spoil it.
