It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here. I have to apologize for the inconvenience for all the readers out there who were looking to get something this weekend. It was a long weekend, but there’s a lot of stuff to cover so we’re getting right back to where we left off
In this edition of “Keeping Busy During the Lockout”, we take an inside look on how Bulls center Joakim Noah has been fairing out. Well, Joakim seems to be fairing out pretty damn well, after we learned he’s been hanging out down at his alma matter Florida. It was originally noted that Noah was working out down in Gainsville trying to prepare for the upcoming season in question. It now appears that Noah has a little too much free time on his hands, but seriously their is absolutely nothing wrong having some fun. Joakim is taking full advantage of that.
TMZ caught some pics of Joakim Noah workin on his J, but not with a basketball. Noah was seen at a party in an apartment down by the Florida campus, and it soon moved to the pool area. Noah was pictured shootin’ the ping pong ball, thus coming to the conclusion my man was playing some beer pong. Beer pong is a classic party game, and why can’t Joakim experience it? I mean I’m sure this wasn’t his first game, but if these losers at TMZ think they are cool and have done justice for the NBA getting these pictures, they are wrong. Even though the fat ass David Stern is probably sweating and eating a lot now because he sees his players are having fun despite his leagues malfunction (lockout), their is no big deal about this. Good for you, you ugly bastard Joakim. You deserve to have some fun. Apparently, he is pretty damn good at this game to:
“Sources at the apt. tell us … Joakim’s pong skills were STRONG … and he played for roughly 2 hours.” – probasketballtalk.com
Too bad his NBA jump shot doesn’t reflect from this…
The Texas Rangers moved on to there second consecutive ALCS, waiting to play the winner of tomorrow’s game 5 between the Tigers and Yankees. In yesterdays clincher, Adrian Beltre smacked 3 home runs, tying an MLB playoff record for most in a game. After Beltre’s first home run, something far more interesting happened than what had left the park.
TBS Cameraman Tim Burke was doing his job, obviously, following Beltre down the 3rd base line as he trotted to home plate. Then, the flop came. Burke tripped and flopped harder than no other cameraman has before. Yes, it was sad seeing this helpless cameraman fall to the ground in what looked to have been a tripping up of the feet, but it was comical and was replayed by TBS afterwords. After he ate it, Beltre pointed at him and in the dugout he was cracking some jokes about the idiot cameraman. Let this be a lesson Tim Burke, and watch where your going.
Who doesn’t want to beat the shit out of Tony Romo? From his little stint running off to Cancun to getting his little jimmy blown by Ed Werder, who wouldn’t like to give Tony boy a little beating? Certainly, Chris Cooley agrees with this and took it a much higher level than ever anticipated.
There was never a real rivalry between these 2, I mean clearly they aren’t going to be best friends since they play for rival teams of one another. Cooley though made it clear that he in no way,shape, or form likes Tony Romo. On LaVar Arrington’s radio show, Cooley had some choice words for the big bitch Romo:
“It’s amazing, amazing to watch him choke like that. I’m just saying, I’m up 24 points in the third quarter, if I’m the head coach, I feel like I could probably just take a knee for the rest of the game, punt it away and there’s no way that Detroit’s gonna drive on you that many times. The only way you’re gonna give up that many points is turnovers, right? It’s hilarious to watch him throw pick sixes, too, back-to-back. I loved it.”
I mean right there it sounds like a typical shot on one of many flaws by Tony, but Chris didn’t stop there. When asked by idiot LaVar what he would rather see than Tony blowing that big of a lead, he responded by saying this:
“But it wouldn’t be as good as my cage fight,”…“For me to beat Tony? I’m gonna be honest, I don’t know what kind of cage fighting skills he has. I would probably try to incorporate my wrestling ability, like when I was in high school. Obviously it’s been a while, but I didn’t like to beat people fast. I like to embarrass ‘em a little bit. Like, take a 24-point lead, and then just play with it a little bit.”
Chris Cooley has gained quite a bit of respect from me. I mean even though his shitty team lost to Tony last week on the worst MNF game ever, he would probably beat the living shit out of Romo. I doubt that Romo has any ability to fight, let alone any cage fighting skills. Maybe Dana White should take this into consideration and have these 2 redneck bastards get in the cage. I have Cooley breaking every bone in Romo’s body. Tony hasn’t responded to Cooley’s controversial comments, and I am sure he won’t. We all know Tony doesn’t like getting in the spotlight unless he breaks a rib and comes back to win the game. Too bad he’s usually invisible in the 4th quarter.
Only way Romo wins cage fight: If the referee is either Ed Werder, Troy Aikman, or Joe Buck… they’ll stop the fight whenever there little princess Tony wants to.
Last week Ozzie Guillen was let go by the Chicago White Sox, and was soon short after named the 1st manager of the Miami Marlins. In my opinion, Ozzie is the most animated and comical manager in baseball, and is in a pretty close race with Stan Van Gundy and Rex Ryan for most comical coach in sports. Well, Ozzie Guillen is looking to start off fresh in Miami and is looking forward with this challenge. Trying to manage a last place baseball club is going to have Ozzie spewing out a lot more nasty shit in post game conferences than he did in Chicago, and that was a lot.
Ozzie wants a fellow nut case to know that he is welcome in Miami, and is really wanted by himself. The nut case I am referring to is none other than Carlos Zambrano. Guillen has already reached out to Big Z for a potential trade that could send him to Miami. Now, I think these 2 are a match made in heaven. They are both insane inside and outside of the clubhouse, both have barely any success in the past 4 years, and both have a lot to prove. These two can start their own comedy show if they really wanted to. Besides all of that, why would Guillen want Zambrano? As a Chicago Cub, this guy plays teams multiple times a year that Helen Keller could get Wins and K’s against. He has random outbursts and thinks he can do whatever he wants. He “retired” this past year after giving up 5 home runs in a game to the Atlanta Braves and even though he pulled a Brett Favre and came out of retirement, he was shut down the rest of the year. Since these 2 idiots are best friends (which makes complete sense) I can see where this is going. Maybe Ozzie has some faith in Zambrano, or maybe Carlos goes to Ozzie’s house and pitches while Ozzie catches (yea I went there).
Their is no denying that Jose Valverde had the best season as a closer this year. Even
though Papa Grande found himself in trouble at times, he didn’t blow a save the entire year going a perfect 49/49. Along with the perfection he had 69 strikeouts and a 2.24 ERA. I really liked Valverde and what he was doing, but today my view on him changed tremendously. Valverde came into Game 2 of the ALDS yesterday with a 4 run cushion, bottom of the 9th inning. Although he did record the save and Detroit tied it up 1-1, Valverde ran into some trouble as he gave up a solo home run to Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones sac fly’ed to right field to drive in Jorge Posada. He ended up getting the potential tying run Robinson Cano to groundout, and the game was over. Now, this is what gets things interesting.
Sunday night, Jose Valverde had the balls to tell this to the Detroit News:
“It’s over already,”…”(Justin) Verlander has it tomorrow. The next day we have the celebration in Detroit.”
reported by John T. Greilick of The Detroit News
So Mr. Valverde thinks he can talk all of this shit when the Yankees almost made him blow his first save of the year last night. Just because your boy Verlander is pitching tomorrow doesn’t mean anything. For those who don’t know, Justin Verlander has never, and I mean absolutely never started a game without a 5 day rest. That is well known among the Tigers, and they’re willing to give it a shot. Nothing wrong with that, but I’d be a little worried. I mean he had the best season for a starting pitcher in the MLB, but he has no true post season stats to back up anything. You can be an amazing regular season pitcher, but sometimes you can’t come through in the clutch. Being the die hard Yankee fan I am, I now not only hope we win these next two games, but I hope Valverde blows both of them. I officially hate Jose Valverde now. He’s completely full of himself with these comments he feels that he can around and freely say. When Jose is sitting his fat ass on the couch in a week when the Yankees are playing Texas/Tampa Bay in the ALCS, I am sure he will be really happy when he’s reminded about his false comments.
Well if you were sidetracked this week/weekend and didn’t hear about the comments you are about to hear, you’re about to lose a lot of respect for Rob Ryan, if their was even respect in the first place. Not only does Rob think he has the best defense in the league, he decided to cross boundaries and talk up a big game about the Cowboys offense. Specifically, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. Even more specifically, how Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are BETTER wide receivers than Calvin Johnson. When asked by the Dallas Morning News what he was doing to prepare for Calvin Johnson, this is what fatty Rob Ryan had to say:
“We work against better receivers with Miles Austin and Dez Bryant”
Wow. Did this moron really just say the Cowboys defense practice against better receivers than Calvin Johnson? Their may be one or two teams that could say that quote. Their is no way in hell that Dez Bryant or Miles Austin are better than Megatron. Going in to Sunday’s game, Calvin Johnson had a streak of 3 games in a row scoring 2 touchdowns. Not only that, he has been doing this stuff his entire career. Not only that, but he scored 2 more touchdowns against Ryan’s shitty defense. If that doesn’t make things worse, this should: Rob Ryan’s defense blew a 27-3 lead only to lose 34-30 to the still undefeated Detroit Lions. So Calvin now has 8 touchdowns this year, along with 24 catches and 321 yards.
You know, Rob Ryan probably had that dumb smile on his face when Dez scored the first 2 touchdowns of the game, but when the playboy didn’t show up in the 2nd half he probably hid behind his little playbook like he always does when he’s upset. The best part about the comeback from Detroit is that Calvin Johnson scored the game winning touchdown, a beautifully placed ball from Matthew Stafford only in a place where Johnson could get it. Terrence Newman really proved he practices against better receivers than Calvin Johnson on that play
In every town, every block, every house, there’s that mom who uses facebook to brag about there kids, or how bad there job is, or how annoying there husband is. Well, one post on facebook by a mother has led the Perry County Vikings of Linden, Tennessee to drop from an undefeated record of 5-0 to a record of under .500, 2-3. The post, made by the mother of offensive lineman Rodney and Ryan Belasic, said this:
” How can two boys mess up their room as badly as they do when they’re only here on
Saturday and Sunday?”
Seems like a harmless post, right? Wrong. This clearly shows that the Belasic brothers do not actually live within the limits of the Perry County District. TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress and school officials were convinced that the Belasic’s were members of the Linden community. Due to this, not only was Perry County’s record greatly effected, but the two brothers were both ruled ineligible by the TSSAA and were kicked off the team.
Well mom, this is a lesson to you. No more posting dumb shit on facebook, especially about how your two grown boys are making messes in there room at 16, 17 years old. Way to ruin a season for a team that could’ve gone a long way. The only problem I have is that I doubt these two lineman won this team the 3 games they were given the loss for. Here is there game log:
|08/19||22 – 7Win|
|08/26||20 – 6Win|
|09/02||44 – 7Win|
|09/09||43 – 7Win|
|09/16||40 – 6Win

I doubt that they wouldn’t be undefeated looking at how they destroyed every team. Whatever, not my call. Good luck for these guys the rest of the season, maybe you should’ve followed the rules and sent your damn kids to the school they were supposed to mom.
Plenty of NBA players have kept themselves busy this past off-season, and since there is the
lockout looming over the 2011-2012 season, they have been making sure they are busy. For instance, Andre Iguodala is interning at Merrill-Lynch, one of the many companies that helped in bringing the stock market to where it is today (DOWN). Delonte West brought his talents to a Home Depot in Boston, where he will be working and spending his time until he gets his real job back. As many of us know, many players are playing basketball overseas in countries like Russia, China, Japan, and Italy. Well, Ben Wallace (Chris Broussard voice) had other plans.
Wallace, who was a force on the defensive side for the Detroit Pistons for many years, was arrested last Saturday at around 3 a.m. on drunk driving and weapons charges. He clocked in at over a .08 BAC level, which is a number believed to be well over the legal limit while operating a vehicle. Police also found an unloaded pistol in a backpack on the passengers seat of his vehicle. Police also found out that Wallace had channeled his inner Plaxico Burress, being that he didn’t have a permit for the gun. We all know Mayor Bloomberg would have Wallace indicted tomorrow since he loves throwing black athletes in jail, but luckily Ben is a Detroit resident. He claims the gun is registered under his wife’s name, and him and a friend left it in the car for protection while they ventured to “Club 21″… the location of this club is not known. The 37 year old Wallace was released on $5,000 bond.
In what could be Ben’s last year of his storied career, he is in the final year of his contract with the Pistons which is worth $2.2 million.
After reading an article about Seattle’s OLB Aaron Curry being shopped around the league
before the Week 6 deadline hits, I decided to check out previous draft classes and how awful they turned out. It’s always the best feeling when you predict something when the original event takes place, forget about it, and your reminded about it. That is exactly what happened to me when I reviewed the dreadful NFL Draft Class of 2005.
Rewind to April 2005. I was a 6th grader at LMK Middle School (shout out to my Harrison crew!) and was just starting to become a logical sports fan. Learning the reasons why DB’s were drafted over some QB’s, you know, the basic stuff. Well at that time I had become a well rounded sports fan, and was really loving football. The Giants were poised for a solid season since at the time 1 year pro Eli Manning looked pretty good his last few starts despite only winning 1 game his rookie year. This was the first full NFL Draft I watched, imagine: a young 6th grader analyzing, studying, memorizing… not tests, but the incoming class of 2005 and there stats, where there best fit was, etc. I remember saying to myself a million times, Aaron Rodgers is going #1 to San Francisco, this guy is a can’t miss. Well, things clearly didn’t
work out that way when Mike Nolan, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers at the time, made his first and surely worst pick. He drafted Alex Smith, quarterback from Utah. Everyone knows how bad Alex is, I don’t think I have to prove it in this article. I said to myself “well, wait, then that means Rodgers has to be taken next pick”… Well, Miami was up and everyone and there mother knew they were taking Ronnie Brown, Running Back from Auburn. Him and Carnell “Cadillac” Williams (taken 3 picks later by Tampa Bay) performed as an amazing duo for Auburn and people were really excited to see those 2 play in the big leagues. Cleveland selects WR Braylon Edwards from Michigan, Chicago grabs Texas RB Ced Benson off the board, Cadillac Williams at 5 by Tampa Bay. And then, out of no where, out of all the research I did, the hard work I did evaluating the 1st round, I didn’t have this man picked until the 2nd round. a man who was dubbed “Pacman” Jones was selected #6 by the Tennessee Titans. Understandable why they didn’t draft Rodgers, they had legend QB Steve McNair (RIP) and were a solid offensive force. Until Aaron Rodgers was picked, some notables names that were picked were Antrel Rolle, DeMarcus Ware, Shawne Merriman, and Jamaal Brown. Wait, that’s really the only good players until Rodgers was picked? Come on, this is a joke.
Aaron Rodgers was finally selected by the Green Bay Packers at the 24th overall selection, and as soon as I heard that I knew Rodgers would mold into an amazing quarterback. After all, he learned under the lingering legend Brett Favre himself. It’s really funny when you look at all of the teams with Quarterback troubles now, who could’ve taken Rodgers but decided to make an awful pick:
(1) San Francisco 49ers – Alex Smith
(7) and (18) Minnesota Vikings – Troy Williamson and Erasmus James
(15) Kansas City Chiefs – Derrick Johnson
(21) Jacksonville Jaguars – Matt Jones
Honestly, this draft class sucked. When the best player in the top 10 of your class is a throw up between Braylon Edwards and Antrel Rolle, there are some big problems. Despite DeMarcus Ware, Roddy White, Aaron Rodgers, Jamaal Brown, and Logan Mankins… woah, what an awful class. Wrapping it up, take a look at this fact that these morons should feel ashamed of:
There are just as many pro bowlers from the 1st round of the 2005 draft (Ronnie Brown,
Braylon Edwards, DeMarcus Ware, Shawne Merriman, Jamaal Brown, Aaron Rodgers, Roddy White, Logan Mankins, Antrel Rolle, and Heath Miller) as there is from the 7th round & un drafted free agents from the 2005 draft (Derek Anderson, Jay Ratliff, Matt Cassel, Jon Condo, Joshua Cribbs, John Denney, Heath Farwell, Robbie Gould, Cameron Wake, and Leonard Weaver). 10 each.
