Welcome to the 33rd Purple Row edition (and 138th overall) of Tuesdays With Mitch, where we're a new month means we're a little closer to April. And don't forget to pay your rent, you bum! Let's get into it...
(As noted before, the "writing portions" of some of my offseason posts will be brief. For the most part, there's not much going on with the Rockies these days and the staff here at Purple Row is covering the ins and outs of the offseason better than I can in this weekly format.)
... In fact, we're jumping straight into the weekly departments today. Lots of good stuff this week!
IMPORTANT: A couple weeks ago, I added a new poll for you to vote on your favorite clips throughout the offseason. Sometime before Spring Training rolls around, we'll crown an offseason CLIP OF THE YEAR. So don't forget to vote for your favorite at the bottom of this post. (Last week's winner was the NBA player getting left hanging.)
Stud(s) of the week:
So I have a bit of a predicament here because the Monmouth Hawks' bench has produced enough clips to generate several blog posts on their own. (Like this one and this one.) The MAAC squad has pulled off some big upsets in the early season and they're having fun doing it. And when they have more fun, we have more fun! Hooray for fun! Sports! Here are a few of my favorite wacky celebrations from these goofballs:

Ass of the week:
So Tyson Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday to become the new heavyweight champion. Congrats to him for doing that! But then... he did this. Just in case you haven't had your full dosage of awkward yet today, this is Fury singing/yelling to his wife in an arena full of people, including the dude he just beat. If this doesn't make you uncomfortable, you are one cool cucumber. It would be greatly preferred if sweaty athletes could refrain from post-event serenades in the future.
Here's a shortened video:

And here's the full interview, if you dare. He sings for a LONG time (starting at about the 1:50 mark).
