This team blows. It appears maybe whiny bitch Pedro Martinez may be more positive in the clubhouse than we realized, because the team fucking sucks without him. This team is an embrassment, the only national attention they're getting is the same that the Yankees are, "why does this team suck?" . Leave it to these shitheads to when the Yankees are 0-21 when scoring 3 runs or less and being 1 game under .500 for the year to make it unenjoyable because you blow just as bad as they do. I got nothing else to say, call me when you know how to win a fucking ballgame.

I read this on Yahoo Sports by Matt Hayes
There are rumblings among many Big 12 coaches that the addition of the 12th game beginning in 2006 should force the league to eliminate the conference championship game. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he would be all for dropping the title game, adding that the current BCS setup leaves teams playing in a championship game at a disadvantage. Big 12 commissioner Kevin Weiberg says the game has become an important part of the league's tradition. In other words, the $10 million cash cow isn't going anywhere. ...

I'll tell you why Stoops doesn't like playing a championship game. Because he keeps getting beat in them, but stillllllllllll goes to the BCS championship. I don't see the disadvantage Stoops. You want to be the best, you act like the best. You take on anyone. If you have such a problem with the championship game, then suck. Lose games. Fuck off. Is it because your teams are so overhyped and then collapse in the big games? "We would have won the championship if we didn't have to play a championship game." LSU played in the SEC championship and won it. You played the Big 12 championship and your team was demolished. AND YOU STILL WENT TO THE BCS CHAMPIONSHIP. I don't see the problem. Why are you crying? Same thing happened to Nebraska. They were crushed by Colorado in a regular season game, didn't even go to the damn Big 12 title game, and STILL PLAYED IN THE BCS CHAMPIONSHIP, where they were eventually spanked... again. You have nothing to cry about Stooper. Even if you don't play in the game or get demolished by the North champion, you're virtually assured to play for the trophy anyway.

Yes, the RedSox in general are pissing me off, obviously, they look like nerve gas victims out there, Foulke sucks, Renteria sucks at home, Manny and Ortiz aren't doing shit, blahblahblah, all the stuff you've heard. Todays real theme is suggestions on what to do with Kevin Millar, the first baseman who makes every fan watching yell "hell for 3 mil a year I'll bumble around in the field and look like a faggot in the batters box too". Alright, here goes...

1. The "Friendly's Scoop" show he does sponsored by local ice cream store, Friendly's, weekly on FSN. Why don't you take your Friendly's scoop and use it to pinch hit for you next time theres a baserunner, or throw it at those weak ass ground balls to first you constantly miss? (This one isn't very logical, I know, but I'm pretty pissed)

2. The argument I've heard all year is "but Kevin is such a great influence in the dugout... he's great with the other players..." THEN LEAVE HIM IN THE FUCKIN DUGOUT NEXT TIME YOUR TEAM TAKES THE FIELD.

3. Start playing Youkilis and Olerud more at first. A because they're both simply better options, and secondly because maybe a older player with a time bomb in his head and a young wonderjew from Pawtucket taking his playing time will light a fire under his ass and he'll start hitting.

4. Trade him for a bag of Fritos.

5. Throw him a bottle of Jack Daniels and tell him to drink up before the game, if the rumors are true it worked wonders in the ALCS last year. While you're at it, give David Wells a couple shots of the shit too. (Wells, to the ignorant, is fatter than a keg and probably has more alcohol inside him too)

Thats it. I'm not very happy with you right now, Kevvie. You can still come over tonight and watch your episode of Queer Eye For The Straight Guy with me though, my mom's making smores.

Someone please get rid of Selig.
Finally he suggested a harsher steroid system. But a little too late maybe. For some reason, people still consider baseball the best. They can't get enough of it. The Marlins winning it on a crappy payroll and the Bosox finally winning a ring probably gave fans that, "Oh man anything can happen." kind of sentiment to watch and attend. Yet, does baseball have any integrity? Can fans really trust baseball?
I wouldn't be surprised if one day baseball strikes or there's just steroids all over the place.
Which brings me to this: baseball isn't tagging the obvious people. But they won't. Why? No Bonds, no fans. Yes, he has been injured, but this could be the ploy to say, "Hey Bonds, do Uncle Selig a favor and sit out a few games to clean out your system."
Selig is a tool. Baseball lost respect, at least with me.

Celtics? You're done, forever. [
May 9th, 2005 @ 09:13 PM

enragedfan
I'll make this short and to the point. 97-70, the worst loss in game 7 NBA playoff history. The Celtics, a team favored to roll the Pacers and at least make some noise in the second round, laid an absolute egg in game seven. I've watched higher scoring college ball games, and simply put Game 7 disgusted me, the team played like exactly what they are right now, a team that didn't belong there. The end result? Paul Pierce, from his selfish ball carrying, dumb antics off the court and outright embarrassing the organization throughout the series may well have him traded off the team, and more importantly the Celtics finally got a rise from the fans and got people who haven't cared in a decade to start watching again this year.... well its gone. I speak only for myself, but I'm sure others share this viewpoint, I tune in for an entire Ggame in game 7, and you did this to me. Losing I can deal with, losing because you absolutely sucked I can't. The Celtics have lost me forever, like the Blue Jays fans after the lockout said "we'll never come back", you did it Boston. I will never watch the Celtics again. If I get offered free tickets and transit to a Celtic game, fine, I'll go, but otherwise, you've lost me forever. Finally, FINALLY you get fans to start caring, and you bomb to a level that makes Hiroshima look like a couple bottle rockets. Oopsie?

From my understanding of what I've pieced together off sports talk radio and ESPN chunks today, LaBron James is going to fire his agent and hire a new one who will be a FORMER HIGHSCHOOL BUDDY OF HIS. There were other questionable LeBron moves in this story I'll omit for now, mainly because that one stuck out. LeBron is firing his agent and hiring one of his homies from high school, which even if he was a freshman when they were a senior would make them at best 24, 25 if they're a moron. WHAT? I can't fathom why anyone would tell King James this was a good idea, but if somebody did, they should be shot. Repeatedly. LeBron is obviously the best young talent in the league right now, the closest thing to Jordan since him (note I didn't say he's the next Jordan), and now I'm getting a sick feeling in my stomach that he's going to make poor moves like this one forever and end up being a phenomenal talent that never reaches what its supposed to. LeBron has to move to a better team and hope that helps carry his career, because as good as he is, and he's excellent, right now he's making career moves that to a neutral observer like myself just seem strange.

A few rants today. Like one columnist in Miami has, "random evidence of a cluttered mind."

Barry Bonds re-hires his old trainer. The same guy who is under investigation and a lot of scrutiny for juicing up a few athletes. I guess those knee injuries and his shitty season must be in need of a booster shot.

Everyone was thinking Washington would steal the first game against the Heat. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA.

The fortune of the Miami Dolphins has scored once again. The favorite to succeed traded CB Patrick Surtain is out for the ENTIRE SEASON. Nick Saban is playing with fire. He may think being silent to the media about plays and positions may keep the media pressure and expectations out of the locker room, but trust me. Fans and the media will equally hound him for being silent if the Dolphins suck ass again. And he better have some magic from his LSU days.

So, I'm not a horse racing person, but I saw the Derby. If only I had bet for that horse that will probably never win another race. That was all jockey on Giacomo. And Spanish Chestnut hauling ass and making the other horses try to catch up wore them all out. All the publicity and yadda yadda and for a 50-1 to take it. The fastest horse finished third. Steinbrenner's... HA. Not a good year for him. I didn't even see him after the race.

People saying race had something to do with Nash over Shaq for the MVP. Who cares? What is an MVP anymore? Most valuable to the league or to his team or the best player or what? Much like the Heisman... best college player or best guy on a national championship team?

Shame on you, Terry Francona. [
May 8th, 2005 @ 07:39 PM

enragedfan
Lets set it up for those of you (yes, I'm pretending people actually read this) that weren't watching the second RedSox Mariners game on Sunday. In the seventh inning with two outs, a man on second base, Terry "teh jeniuz" Francona decides to bring in his newly called up pitcher from AA (he pitched ONCE for AAA before being called up to the Sox, so he's AA as far as I'm concerned), Cla somethingorother, a submarine righty who was 0.00 ERA style lockdown in AA, pitched once for the PawSox thursday, and came up to the RedSox to replace human spittoon Blaine Neal. This kid pitched 15 scoreless appearances with 9 saves in AA, but to cut to the point (which I've avoided for a paragraph so far), Tito brings him in with 2 outs and a man on 2nd in a tie game in the 7th, this kid is a rookie, only the second to officially make an MLB appearance from last years draft class so far, him and some douche bag from Houston. Lets him walk the first two he faces then give up a grannie to Richie "I'll hit it out or I'll strike out" Sexson, then gets pulled from the game, the RedSox inevitably lose. Not only is putting a rookie in a key situation like that in a baseball game outright asinine, but letting him walk them loaded, give up a 4 run shot and pull him out of the game might have ruined this kids confidence for a long time, if not permanantly. Tito brought us a World Series victory, so I wouldn't call for his head if he put Manny Ramierez in the bullpen, but Jesus man, this simply was not a good decision. BOOOOOOO


Could the Royals suck any more? [

I just saw the end of the Royals WhiteSox game, the Royals closer, Douchebaggius Clay the 33rd of York, in a bases loaded situation in the 9th with two outs, walks in the tying run on 4 pitches. Next batter, walks the winning run in on 4 pitches. No more real commentary here, simply describing that shows how pathetic it is. The Royals could win their next 30 and would still be fighting for a legitimate spot in the standings.

Every time I've ever seen Steinbrenner's GM he looks like he can't wait to be fired, killed, or put in a coma. Why does he look so miserable? Well, obviously he works for The Stein, but whats killing him is a 200 million dollar payroll and a pitching staff that rivals the Pirates. Kevin Brown's ERA balooned up to 8.84 last night after giving up 6 in the first against the Tampa Bay Double A's, Randy is down with a groin injury (which by the way, hearing he might go on the DL gave me a little stiffness in the groin too), and their top minor league prospect pitcher's last name is Wong (pronounced "Wang") and I believe his first name is French for "Dog". It would be nice if the RedSox were actually doing well, but for the moment at least I can sit back and laugh at a 200 million dollar payroll thats thinking about going out and getting Roger Clemens because they don't have enough pitching.

The Legacy of Winslow [
May 4th, 2005 @ 09:49 AM

nene13
So, Kellen Winslow Jr., tight end for the Cleveland Browns, buys a bike with his 4.4 million dollar signing bonus money, tries to ride it, and learns just why most people don't ride them.
He messes up his shoulder and knee and has internal injuries.
Cleveland is not amused. And they shouldn't be.
Winslow mouthed off as TE at Miami. And he felt the backlash on that. He gets drafted by the Browns and then holds out. He signs the largest contract for a tight end (not even playing a down in the NFL before then). He punches out a teammate and justifies it with, "We should play with more intensity."
Well, if you cared so much about the team why are you riding around on motorcycles? I'm not saying you can't. But Cleveland is. Cleveland may want its signing bonus back. Contract stipulates not to engage in reckless or risky activities. As you learned, Mr. Winslow JR., riding a motorcycle is risky.
I hope you saved enough money from the 1 1/2 games you played for the Browns last season. Oh yes. Right. Riding a motorcycle, knowing they are not safe, risking injury with a body which suffered a broken leg during a game.
You're not your father, JR. He was awesome. He was responsible. He had skills. Just about everyone loves him.
But only he may be the only who loves you now.

[ mood | shitty ]

I was watching part of Juan Rincon's recent interview, expecting to see a great setup pitcher verbally work his way around explaining how he managed to violate the leagues substance abuse policy, and instead got the same show we've been seeing from just about every foreign player who's first language is Spanish that has a mic in front of them. I'm not expecting people who have been in this country a month to speak English fluently, and this card has been played by many people in the past, but f**king Christ, can we drop this "I've been in your country for 15 years in the public eye 162 times a year and haven't bothered to learn a word of English" gimmick? Even worse is cases like Corky Sosa during the congressional hearing, even though most of us saw during the sham home run race between him and McGwire that Sosa can clearly speak English when he wants to, ask him a question about steroids and what comes back at you? "Me no speakie English." I for one don't speak Spanish at all, and thats not lazy, thats me not making it easier for people to enter this country and not even bother to learn its language. THAT, is lazy.


What the hell is wrong with Keith Foulke? [

Quick whine about the RedSox closer, Keith Foulke, who I witnessed in the bleachers and in front of the tv last postseason put together a complete playoff performance that rivaled Mariano Rivera in his prime. Three circle changeups in a row to batters resulting in three pitch strikeouts, dominant setups, he was money. So far this year he can't throw a pitch that'll stay in the park, in both his last two three-run leads in the 9th (what is referred to as a "soft save") he has given up a two run shot and made what should be a cake walk into f**king childbirth. He's too good to stay like this, I know he'll get his stroke back, but for now, its awfully frustrating.

Don King's recent "pay per view" event, a phrase I use loosely because as far as I know nobody ordered it has simply got to have him questioning this boxing promotion career. The night before a heavyweight title fight between Tropicana Bob and Turd Fergeson, the two best boxers in a division that has high ranked boxers with two more career knockouts than I do, had only sold 6,000 tickets. Don King within 24 hours before the event was giving away tickets to make it appear less embarrassing on tv (which as I said isn't a problem because it brought in ratings that rivaled "A Connie Chung Christmas"). Don has looked like a fool for years, but theres something to be said about him of all people giving away tickets.

Patriot Update [

enragedfan
Coach Hooded Sweatshirt before this years draft implied during a WEEI radio interview he had little interest in this years draft's talent pool and showed it on draft day, taking with the 32nd overall pick a guard that obnoxious draft guru MEL KAYPAH JOOYNJAH had ranked in the 80's on his player list. This will be another player that many like me are saying "what the hell" right now, but will probably end up being a vital player in several years. Other than that, the expected linebacker picking late in the draft, a 37th quarterback to battle for Brady's backup, and a couple late picks that will give the Patriots a 4,5,6 round package in next years draft (I forget from who, and I don't need to know because its my community) were about all that came out of this years draft. The team also met with and passed on Aaron Glenn and have been casually looking for free agent veteran linebacker talent to help a recovering Teddy Bruschi share the workload or possibly carry it altogether. On a side note, Ben Roethlisberger sucks.

RedSox update [

[ mood | stoned ]

Lets briefly overlook the basic idea of a batting lineup. The leadoff hitter is supposed to simply get on base, however he can. The Sox have that in Damon, and other than that and the 3/4 of Ramierez and Ortiz, this lineup sucks. Your DH Ortiz is being protected in the 5 slot by Kevin Millar, a man who couldn't hit a cow in the ass with a banjo, much less hit a baseball. Millar recently on TV gave (I think) Fox Sports Net a tour of the batting cage during the nightly wrapup show, has he ever actually been in it? Put Varitek in the 5 slot, put Millar back in the bathroom highlighting his hair, and put Renteria on another team. I'll be back to verbally abuse the pitching later.

First.

College football wants to keep its integrity, but adds the 12th game and still uses and abuses non-BCS teams. The playoff is most likely never going to happen. The same commishes who said playoffs will disrupt academics then go ahead and add a 12th game. But they did that to kill the playoff idea because playoff will kill the crappy structure for fans, but wonderful and lucrative plan for commissioners.
