Well, we’re half-way through the holidays and now it’s to shift our focus a little bit towards welcoming in the New Year. What would I like to see? New champs, less media knob-gobbling, more fun, and myself and the Black Bandit from Hoodwood rolling through your Tuesdays. Welcome aboard my man! Time for me to step my game up!
NFL. Color this a positive weekend for me - the Jets, Giants, and Cowboys lost and the San Diego Chargers mailed in a game they had to win. The Jets needed humility, The Giants need to learn how not to turn the ball over, the Cow-sissies need a clue (and a new owner) and the Chargers need to move on from Norv Turner who looked totally lost out there.
Speaking of moving on, my boys in the city finally cut Singletary loose. He’ll be fine, as a DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. The 49ers won’t be fine until they get a new owner. Now I hear that Eddie D. is gonna come back in some “consultant” capacity. Eff that – TAKE BACK THE TEAM EDDIE!!!
Roddy White is an absolute moron. Way to fire up “the Ain’ts” big dog. Hey Roddy, real original to call the Saints “the Ain’ts” - just so you know, that was making the rounds in 1980 d-bag! Who the hell is this fool to take potshots at the Big Easy anyway? New Orleans has been through hell, but dude plays in Atlanta – not exactly known as a Garden Spot, and only one step from hell itself! Hey Roddy, here’s a history lesson for ya - when you do a roll call of Super Bowl Winning franchises, New Orleans can say they’re in – can Hot-lanta? Didn’t think so son – SHUT YOUR FREAKING CAKE HOLE! Oh, and Roddy, the Aints just came in your crib and traded your ass for a pack of smokes while all you could muster was three catches for 43 yards. Nice job!!!
Speaking of which, big thanks to Drew Brees for what I believe will clinch me third place in the You Gab Fantasy League. Dammit though, I’m tired of losing to Jeff and Benson’s!!! I’m coming for ya next year!
Hey Oakland Raiders, I like your improvement, but what’s your excuse in letting a banged up Colts team come in and punk you out in the Black Hole? Oh, and to the Colts fans in NOCAL who were stupid enough to go to the Coliseum in your Colts jerseys, you were warned. That yellow stain on your shirts, wasn’t from mustard you dweebs, it was from the guys above you on Mt. Davis pissing down on your stupid asses!
College Football. I don’t care if Ohio State players sign autographs for tattoos, or sell rings, or whatever, but I guess it broke an NCAA rule, however there is a certain “holier than thou” fan out there who I’m enjoying watch squirm. The punishment is about as lenient as I expected. These guys get a five game suspension starting next season, but not including the Sugar Bowl game against Arkansas THIS season? The NCAA is a joke. I wonder what would have happened if it was the University of South Dakota or New Mexico? Yeah, justice would be swift, sure, and immediate.
May the Hawgs layeth the smacketh down on the Buckeyes Candy-asses!
NHL. Let’s cut to the chase here, More Don Cherry and Canadian teams and less Caps/Penguins is far better for the league. That, Wednesday Hockey Night in America, and Bettman and Fehr out in a field playing with sheep rather than negotiating contracts, and more of this:
NBA. For once, I agree with something Phil Jackson said. I will agree that having the Lakers 12 straight Christmas Days is a more than a little insane and not fair to them – they deserve a holiday off.
Now I’m a Kobe hater, but the Court Jester trying to enhance his villain role by talking junk to Kobe is just plain stupid. I can imagine that conversation…
Court Jester (In Urkel accent): “Hey Kobe, I’m bitch-slappin’ you in your house!!! Merry Christmas!!!”
Kobe: “Nice win in DECEMBER puppet. Don’t forget that while I’m getting fitted for my sixth ring, you’ll be busy trying to figure out why everybody hates you after you quit in the playoffs AGAIN!!! My five rings to your none means that I have scoreboard on your TRICK-ASS BIOTCH!!! “.
On to what really matters in LA – Blake FREAKING Griffin. This dude is the MAN!!! He alone will bring back the word EXCITEMENT to the NBA, should the NBA decide to ever get off the script.
Haven’t seen stuff like this in a long time!
Shaq whining about the refs on Christmas Day and complaining about the very same ref who gave them Game Six in Sacramento eight years ago? Shaq, I like and respect you, but get a grip and realize that this is what the NBA has been all about for almost your whole career. The NBA no longer cares about you because if they did, you wouldn’t be fined.
MLB. Brandon Webb signs with the Rangers? Yawn.
San Diego signed Aaron Harang and Orlando Hudson. Fine, now is there any power hitters available out there?
Rant of the Week – Year in Review. I don’t particularly care about doing a year in review, but as I look back, 2010 in sports was a pretty wild and entertaining ride, wasn’t it? Yeah, we had the Lakers/Celtics, Duke men and UCONN horses (I mean women), Jimmie Johnson, that arrogant little Spainard who took the Tour de France (again), the filthy euros took home yet another World Cup (I’m OK with Spain), Phil Mickelson took another Green Jacket, and New England has pretty much dominated this regular season AGAIN, and Brett Favre and the Court Jester were the King and Queen of the Drama Ball 2010. But hell, the San Francisco Giants, New Orleans Saints, and Chicago Black Hawks won championships, as well as three nobodys on the PGA tour who won majors, and 2010 just might be the year that we FINALLY get rid of the Drama Queen - so all wasn’t really lost in the sports world, now was it?
Before I go… I want to wish everybody one helluva Happy New Year 2011. There were a lot of negatives to 2010, but the sporting world was exciting, ridiculous, juvenile, and interesting. May you all enjoy a fun, yet safe beginning to 2011, and may 2011 be exciting, profitable, and fun for you all you Gabbers out there. By the way, don’t drink and drive…
Peace and ranting forever.
