Tuesday Tantrums - 3/1/11
Category: FEATURED


 

Can't believe it's March already.  Pretty soon, we'll be talking about St. Patrick's Day, but in the meantime, I guess I'll have to get a few rants outta the way...

MLB.  

 

The Cardinals already lost Nick Punto until May at the earliest due to a hernia, and the very next day they lose Adam Wainwright to Tommy John Surgery?  Sucks to be Cardinal fan right now, but nobody should make the mistake of thinking that St. Louis is just gonna allow Cincinnati to run away with the NL Central.

Hey Red Sox nation, can somebody explain to me why you would move Youkilis to third base?

Brian Wilson, are you effing crazy?  You got flown from Phoenix to LA (during spring training) to attend a private showing of “Major League” at Charlie Sheen’s house?   That dude is loony as hell.

The Cubs have already said that Ryan Dempster will be their starting pitcher on opening day over Carlos Zambrano and Matt Garza?  Didn’t we just start Spring Training?

Did I read that right, Tony Gwynn’s son plays for the Dodgers?  Mr. Padres’ son playing for the Dodgers is baseball blasphemy!  I’m glad to hear that Daddy Gwynn is doing much better.

NBA.   Watching the Court Jester continue to be unable to close out games late for the Heat never sucks, but having to watch the Knicks beat the Heat in Miami was a nightmare.  Why?  Because how many times to we have to see Spike Lee on coming out of his seat?  It’s just as stupid as Jack Nicholson.  Spike, get back to work and make a movie worth seeing and stop making a damn fool of yourself.  And as for the Jester, let Wade close out the games.

Denver fans chanting "Who is 'Melo" was priceless...

There was an article about the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, an article which was great. 

http://msn.foxsports.com/home/story/mark-kriegel-san-antonio-spurs-not-carmelo-anthony-nba-true-story-022211

The Spurs are a throwback team.   Throwback to a time when teams played as a team, not one on one with a stagnant offense like one on one while the four other players stand on the other side of the court and watch. 

Hey IHM and AFD, what was with the Pistons of all teams boycotting a practice on Friday?  Damn if these players aren’t straight up doing everything they can to show the owners whose boss…

NHL.   Here come the Sharks, winners of six in a row and now in first place in the Pacific.  With a homestand now up, this isn’t the time to take the foot off the pedal boys.  This week its home for Colorado, Detroit, and Dallas – not exactly easy. 

Question for Edmonton Oilers - how the hell are you ever trading with the LA Kings?  They took Gretzky away from you and you want to trade with these d-bags?  You should never have done that, and I don't care if its been 20 or so years ago.  Hell, the Sawx don't trade with the Cranks, do they?

You gotta love the NHL.  We’ve seen this all week, but it’s still funny to me:

 

 

College Basketball.    CalTech snapped its 310 game losing streak Wednesday Night beating Occidental by one point, 46-45.  They hadn’t won a game since 1985!!!  This is a school of 900 who don’t give out athletic scholarships.  Props to them.

 

Hey Duke, are you tired of this happening to you?  I'm not.  How many times did Virginia Tech cherry pick you Saturday Night?  But Hokie fan, the “Whose your Daddy” chant with Seth Curry’s Dad (Dell Curry, the #1 scorer in Va Tech history) was bad form.  Virginia Tech should get in to the dance this year – don’t screw it up NCAA. 

Damn Doug, I was rooting for the Aztecs Saturday, but BYU hit for 14 threes?  That’s where you gotta tip your hat and say I’d rather get beat by long ass threes then killed in the paint.  Regardless, the fans showed up big, and that’s saying something down in San Diego!

Speaking of Saturday, hey Texas, what the hell was the second half against COLORADO? 

Mustang Basketball.   While the boys had a rough season, the girls ended up ranked #7 in the 16 team divisional playoffs.  They were the section runner-ups at Arco Arena last year and won their first round game easily against the #10 team 58-24.  Unfortunately Thursday Night, they had to travel to the #2 ranked teams house and lost 50-32.  I know the girls are disappointed, but they had a very big season since losing the stars to graduation last year.   

NFL – or bashing Cam Newton.   One week before the NFL Scouting Combine, Cam Newton busts out this gem of a comment - "I see myself not only as a football player, but an entertainer and icon,”.  Are you effing kidding me?  I’ll give him Football Player, but entertainer and icon?  The word “icon” will be dealt with in a locker room come July and August, but it’s the word “entertainer” that has me convinced that this guy isn’t 100% committed to Football.  Hey Buffalo and Cincinnati, I would say to you both – DON’T DRAFT THIS GUY, he will only hurt you.  Didn’t you guys already deal with Terell Owens?

Speaking of the NFL’s “Icon”, right on cue at the combine we’re starting to hear about Cam Newton to the Cowboys, even pics of him wearing the ballcap and holding the jersey.  Newton and King Jerrah deserve each other.  When will Jerry Jones ever learn?  Yet another diva on a team full of ‘em?  Where would you play this guy?  Second string QB and run Kitna out of town?  Yeah that makes sense, the only QB to get that offense moving. 

Oh yeah, one more point, Cam Newton couldn’t hit a WR on a short pattern to save his life, and that was without blockers and no rushers in his face.  Hey Cowboy fan, enjoy!!! 

New Orleans let go of Jeremy Shockey, and the Foreskins bought out Clinton Portis.  Not sure what to think about that, although you might be getting an idea of the near future for all teams in the NFL who wonder about the CBA and ongoing negotiations.  Get rid of some of the mid-level players until they figure out how the cap will work, I guess.

“I guarantee we’ll win it this year.” – Rex Ryan.   Rex, I love the smack, but you’re jerking with the karma and the patience of the football gods. 

College Football.  I’m very happy to say that Doug Williams is going back to be the Head Coach at Grambling.  He was very successful there (35-5). 

Wrestling.  Hey TNA, you still suck.  How 'bout this for an idea, bring Samoa Joe back up to main eventer status and have him kick the shit out of Ric Flair.  That might be something to put you dickheads into the right direction.

Rant of the Week – Sacramento Kings.  These fucking “fans” here infuriate me.  It took that criminal David Stern telling the media during all star weekend that the owners are negotiating with Anaheim to move the Kings down there for fans to finally take what I said two years ago serious.  Lo and behold, these fair weather fans got scared and wanted to do everything they could to prove to those billionaire douche bag Maloofs that they should keep the team here.  Look assholes, the team can’t even fill the bottom bowl of Arco Arena with you supposed “fans”, now you schmucks get scared and fill Arco Arena for the first time in years in order to prove “you love your team”?   As Beeze says, fuck you all!  Go back to LA or the SF Bay Area, you water thieving criminal rejects and stop trying to turn my small city into another fucked up version of the Bay Area or Hollyweird.   

As for the Kings, feel free to close out a game in the 4th when you have a lead.  I swear the next time you to that, it’ll be the first time you do it.

Before I go… It was reported that our friendly neighborhood trailer trash Tonya Harding had a baby at age 40 recently.  Let us all hope this woman has gotten herself straight because we don’t need another spawn of trailer park, that’s for sure.

Peace and ranting forever.

Thoughts From the Couch -- 02.28.11
Category: Daily Blog 2.0

 

 
Happy Monday Gabbers!
 
Spring time is finally here as baseball has arrived with the start of Spring Training games this past weekend, and I for one couldn't be happier that it's finally time for America's Pastime to get underway. I've had baseball fever for several months now, and I was starting to develop a twitch as I was waiting for the sports world to transtion from football to baseball (watching your football team go 2-14 will do that to you).
 
The weather here in coastal South Carolina was absolutely beautiful this weekend, so I didn't do much tv watching as I took advantage of the sunshine and warm temperatures and spent most of the weekend outside with the family. I did manage to catch the Yankees/Phillies spring training opener on MLB Network while I was visiting family (since DISH Network won't pick up the fucking channel so I can watch it at home), and even though I was watching players who will be bagging groceries in 6 weeks, it was good to see baseball being played. 
 
I'm preparing my thoughts for an in-depth 2011 baseball preview, but I'll give a Cliffs-Notes version of projected division finish today (mainly because I don't have anything else to talk about).
 
NL EAST
 
1. Phillies
2. Braves
3. Marlins
4. Mets
5. Nationals
 
NL CENTRAL
 
1. Reds
2. Cardinals
3. Brewers
4. Cubs
5. Pirates
6. Astros
 
NL WEST
 
1. Giants
2. Dodgers
3. Rockies
4. Diamondbacks
5. Padres
 
NL WILDCARD -- Braves
 
AL EAST
 
1. Red Sox
2. Yankees
3. Rays
4. Orioles
5. Blue Jays
 
AL CENTRAL
 
1. Twins
2. Tigers
3. White Sox
4. Royals
5. Indians
 
AL WEST
 
1. Rangers
2. Angels
3. Athletics
4. Mariners
 
AL WILDCARD -- Yankees
 
WORLD SERIES --  PHILLIES OVER RED SOX
 
Again, I'll have an in-depth preview either next week or the week after next, so stay tuned for that.
 
In NFL news, the deadline for the CBA to be negotiated is this Thursday at 11:59 PM. If the NFLPA and the Owners can't come to terms on a new deal, then the players will either have to decertify the union or face a lockout by the owners. Either way, the fans of the game will suffer, but the NFL doesn't really give a shit. All they care about is how much money they can pull in. If you're a huge football fan, be prepared for a long offseason.
 
Despite the CBA insecurity, the combine has been going on since Saturday morning, and the few hours of it I've watched were interesting. It was neat to see some of the top prospects (you have to look for those guys when your team picks first), and I was hugely impressed by Alabama WR Julio Jones who showed that he definitely has the athletic ability to translate to the next level. The much hyped Cam Newton showed that he's a nice athletic specimen as well, performing well in the 40 yard dash and high/broad jump. He struggled in the throwing drills, and in typical fashion he threw the receivers under the bus (douchebag).
 
As a Panthers fan, I will give my thoughts on Cam Newton. (You know you want to hear it.)
 
I hope to everything holy they don't draft him. Sure, he's athletic and he's fast and he's entertaining and he has a lot of hype surrounding him, but he's not the kind of guy I want on my favorite team. There are too many character concerns, and there are too many concerns about whether or not he can read a complex NFL defense and make the proper adjustments during a game instead of relying on his athletic ability. Now, I'm sure you're thinking that he can learn how to read defenses over time and by studying film, but is he the kind of guy who will put in the work to watch film and learn, or is he the next incarnation of JaMarcus Russel? Is the the guy who tried to rely on his athleic ability and never grew into an NFL quarterback? Those concerns are too much for me to take him #1 overall, and I hope with all hope that the Panthers stay far away from him on draft day.
 
With that, I will close. As always, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
 
Until next Monday...

Well, as I write this, my wife and daughter are watching The Oscars, and I figured I'd come down to the man-cave/playroom and knock out my blog...The only reason in my opinion to tune into the Oscars would be to look at Anne Hathaway...By why do that when I can just pull up the hot and dirty parts of her career online!?!
 


So a couple weeks for Valentine's Day, instead of being lovey-dovey, I filled my post with hate...You know, shit that pisses me off...There may have been some people who didn't like that sentiment...Now anyone who reads my blog regularly should know what to expect, but some people are just silly sometimes...

So this week's post is going to be a bunch of things I love...Besides Myself and my family, cause I guess I made that clear already! And since I couldn't tell you what's going on in the world of sports other than the shit you already know, why not just do a nice fluff piece...Oh, and Rex Ryan, can you stop making stupid statements about winning the "Super Bowl" every off-season...Go suck a toe fatty!


Okay, first I clearly love Anne Hathaway, and other such sexy woman, like ROSIE_JONES!

I love Hockey...Playing it, watching it...I'll watch any level...It's the greatest sport out there...
 
I love blogging...I love getting my true thoughts and feeling out there...even if those thoughts and feelings are filled with hate at times...At least it's honest!

I love great comedians like Bill Burr, Patrice O'Neal, Jim Norton, the late, great George Carlin, and Louis CK...All are funny, and smart...This past week, on the O & A show Louis CK not only asked Donald Rumsfeld if he was a flesh eating lizard...But before that he made some amazing points about Corporate America...Yes, it's a long clip that has two others that follow it, but if you have time, take a listen....



 

I love my XM Satellite Radio...Not just for Opie and Anthony...I not hearing the same shitty play lists that every shitty radio station beat into your head...

I love Notre Dame...Not just the sports...The whole damn campus...I love it in the Fall...

 


And I love it in the Winter...
 



The Spring is nice too!

I love Macho Salad...




I love the word fuck...It's the best word going...Really, there's nothing you can't do with it...






I also love to fuck!

I love music...All kinds of music...I love Jazz...Real jazz...None of that Kenny G shit...I'm talking John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk Jazz...




Yes, and anyone who reads me knows, I love Our Lady Peace...



And I love it when they take a song by some one else, that I don't like, and make me like it...




I love Great Lakes Beers...Conway's Irish Ale was my friend Saturday night!

I Love Irish Car Bombs!

I love porn! Find that on your own creeps!

I love Twitter...I get so much news and bullshit from people's link on there it's great...It makes things even easier for our lazy ass society...

I love technology, but is shit like this going to kill off people playing real musical instruments one day?




I and my son, we love Drinking out of Cups...



I'm sure I could go on for days, but I want to have a drink, watch some porn, and keep watching NORM_MACDONALD'S twitter feed, as he trashes The Oscars!


Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.
