Q-o-t-D 8/28/13 Tags: NFL Denver Broncos Baltimore Ravens Joe Flacco

So Peyton Manning and many Broncos fans are upset that the NFL is promoting the opening game of the season, Baltimore @ Denver with banners with Joe Flacco on them, all around Denver...Including the stadium...

Should they be pissed? Or should they shut the fuck up?



Power Rankings - HotLanta for a Sunday Night Special
Category: Racing
Tags: Joey Logano Kurt Busch Jeff Gordon Martin Truex Jr


   Atlanta Motor Speedway is the site of a Sunday Night Special from Hotlanta.

The second of three consecutive night races will ease the heat for fans and drivers alike at the super speedway where tires will be at a premium.

Goodyear is debuting there tire of the future on Sunday night called "Zone Thread" and this could be a game changer for the teams. I know most teams have tested this tire during the year and this will be there first race under race conditions on the new threads.

The technology consists of combining two different compounds across the tire’s surface – a harder inside shoulder and softer outside area - to create a product that can withstand the tremendous stress of race conditions but also provide ample grip to put it in a nut shell.

This race will be mostly run under green and as I write this, thunderstorms are likely for Sunday night so its possible this race could end anytime after the halfway point.

I don't see a lot of cautions for this race except for the early going when teams might not have the right set up and late in the race if it goes green to the checkers when tires have lost there consistency.

Jeff Gordon needs to win here in order to have a shot at the Chase along with Martin Truex who broke his wrist will drive in a cast, Joey Logano and Kurt Busch also needs to have great runs to fend off any challengers to make the Chase.

I'm putting my money on those three drivers to have good runs on Sunday night as the Chase looms.

Only two races left for this segment before the Chase, here's the ten best over the last five years at Atlanta:

10 Dale Earnhardt Jr- needs to have a good run to gain momentum heading into the Chase, good pick! 1 top ten.

9 Kyle Busch- could be lights out here on Sunday night as he looks to bounce back from last weeks woes. 0 wins, 1 top 5 and 2 top 10's.

8 A.J. Allmendinger- will start on Sunday night and could surprise.... 2 top 10's.

7 Juan Pablo Montoya- had a great finish last week and if his engine can hold on, he could get another. 0 wins, 2 top 5's and 3 top 10's.

6 Kurt Busch- hit a stumbling block at Bristol but should get back on track in hotlanta. 2 wins, 3 top 5's and 4 top 10's.

5 Kevin Harvick- is the quite giant that could and he can take the checkers Sunday night. 0 wins, 3 top 5's and 5 top 10's.

4 Tony Stewart- won't be driving anytime soon but Mark Martin will be in his spot, Marks stats 0 wins, 1 top 5 and 2 top 10's.

3 Matt Kenseth- went door handle to door handle last week at Bristol with Kasey Kahne and I wouldn't doubt if it happens again on Sunday night. 0 wins, 1 top 5 and 3 top 10's.

2 Brian Vickers- come on down because the price is right on Vickers. 0 wins, 1 top 5 and 3 top 10's.

1 Jeff Gordon- needs to win period, anything else is a let down as the season is winding down to make the Chase. 1 win, 3 top 5's and 4 top 10's.

Kyle Larson got Tapped to drive Montoya's ride next year and I'm happy a young gun got the ride. Newman may have burned his bridges over the years by racing people hard in the opening laps only to dump them, what goes around comes around. No word on where Newman will drive for next year.

Streakers: BonBon BJH has stormed her way to the top of the leader board with a impressive league leading 8 consecutive top ten picks, she should be feeling the draft, lol. Qulindo is hanging in second and our very own Varooom Varooom in third.

The segment has two races left as BonBon leads the way:

392nd 3 BonBonBJH (Bonnie Hopkins) Kasey Kahne - - 418 360 778
862nd 2 quelndo (Jose Castillo) Jimmie Johnson - - 341 310 651
1167th 16 Where's my Cloths (Jose Nieves) Brad Keselowski - - 353 250 603
1330th 17 Vroooom Vroooom  (Wendy Morin) Kurt Busch - - 344 240 584
2017th 18 Nascar Devil.SS (Robert DeMerchant) Brad Keselowski - - 346 180 526
2350th 2 NASCARJEN29 (Jennifer Sullins) Kyle Busch - - 276 230 506
2717th 26 chili pepper racers (Lynne Pepper) Matt Kenseth - - 321 170 491
8843rd 6


Good Luck Sunday Night!

Q-o-t-D 8/24/13 Tags: NFL Joe Flacco Ray Lewis

Joe Flacco said this about Ray Lewis and his idiotic speeches....

“That’s not me,” Flacco says. “I love Ray, and I love how he always spoke from the heart, but if you listened to those speeches, a lot of them didn’t even make sense. He meant everything he was saying, but I didn’t know what he was talking about 90 percent of the time.”

Is Flacco going to catch hell for saying such a thing about ESPN's golden boy?



Shorty in a Pickle

Tags: MLB Boston Red Sox Atlanta Braves Joel Hanrahan Mitchell Boggs Lance Birkman Justin Upton Clay Buchholz





Shorty’s first owner, Dinsdale Piranha, was an abusive man...cruel but fair

put a lot of pressure on ole shorty as you can see

Old Dinsey is demanding custody. 

I called Atty Jackie Chiles. I’m not worried,

I’m not just some innocent bystander!



After the first week or so of MLB, the surprise teams are The Boston Red Sox , Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics in the AL and the Atlanta Braves, Arizona Diamondbacks

And Colorado Rockies in the senior circuit.


It’s amazing how a few wins by Thee Olde Towne Team can change your perspective of the new season. Weather it lasts or it doesn’t, doesn’t matter. You ride the wave and hope for the best. I went into the season with a ho hum outlook on this season, often joking on who would finish last, the Yankees or the Red Sox. After one week I’m saying, this team has some good young players and the potential for the veterans, Ellsbury and Pedroia to carry the load of a long season is there.

Can the starting pitchers, especially Lester and Buchholz ( Sully wouldn’t mind) keep going like they started the season? Both of these guys have shown flashes in their careers as top of the rotation hurlers, both pitched no hitters a couple years back.

Can Dempster win 10-12 games, can Felix Dubront repeat his 12 win season of last year as the number four and can John Lackey be an adequate fifth starter. Lackey hurt his right bicep in the fifth inning against Toronto the other day and will spend time on the DL.

Sox Manager, John Farrell believes that Psycho Alfredo Aseves will fill Lackeys spot in the rotation 

Will David Ortiz ever finish his rehab…on April 1st he was said to have run wind sprints in the outfield…wind sprints…on April 1st


Yikes, hope springs eternal…    but wait...

Joel Hanrahan pulled his best Mitchell Boggs impersonation last night giving up 5 runs to the Baltimore O's in the 9th to tighten up the AL East.


My fantasy team oldmansgame took it on the chin in the first week to Miggy’s

Shorty told me not to draft aging pitchers that relied on velocity to win,

I should have listened.



I do have one or two bright spots, Justin Upton, Lance Berkman

so I lift a glass of Fred Light (now on tap at Moz) to these guys.

gold fish and a Fred Lite

These would make a good bar snack at the Tavern





FUTURE SHOCK 1.1 This section is where shorty takes a look into the crystal ball he took from Bill Parcells. As you remember Tuna used to say,” I don’t have a crystal ball”

That’s because shorty has it.


-NFL news May 2015

    Rumor has it that Sir Roger has appointed an NFL “expansion czar” whose assignment was to identified 3 places out side of the contiguous forty eight to target for expansion…the list of three hasn’t been released yet but there is a rumor floating about places like the Tavern that names the following sites: Hamilton Bermuda, Alajuela Costa Rica and Toronto Canada and one inside the lower forty eight and that would be Los Angeles….shorty says his sources are reliable.

The 2 year is to plan is to add eight teams in total, one to each division. Four in 2015 and four more in 2017. The AFC and NFC East and the AFC and NFC West will get the first four.


The NFL expansion czar hasn’t been identified yet but again, shorty has his sources…reliable sources.

The most frequently named possibility is….


A guy by the name of Billy Shakespeare. Billy hails from jolly Olde London Towne and has been seen having tea recently with Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones..


Shakespeare is not a stranger to the game and actually has NFL experience. Billy was a Cleveland Browns 4th  rounder in the 1993 draft out of…you guessed it, William and Mary, a Classics and Literature major, he was a four year starter at W&M, he played defensive back at 5’11” -195.

He was ceremonially cut by the head coach William S. Belichick during training camp allegedly for attempting to re write the play book into proper English.

The coach was heard ranting around the locker room, Just do your job Billy just do your

#%&*#@*& job. 

After that unfortunate turn of events, he worked out with both the Philadelphia Eagles and the St Louis Cardinals before traveling to Barcelona where he was a special teams standout for two seasons. A wrist injury, diagnosed as carpel tunnel syndrome or chronic writers cramp ended an otherwise promising career.


He’s been involved in the attempt to get a team to London but it’s said he would settle for Bermuda for an expansion


The nick name of the Bermuda team would be the

And would be added to the AFC East


Stay tuned for the next segment of Future Shock and learn the latest from ole shorty himself



And now its time for:

Grilling corner:

Venison Burgers Sweet red bell peppers

Summer squash and Roasted potatoes

Serve with a fine Chianti.

 I bought a “Mo Hate Me” game jersey for shorty,

he handed me $20 for a $2.50 shirt and said…Harry keep the change.


Thanks for the visit, now back to the present and some real sports talk >>

I'm not a fan of Sports Illustrated, but I don't mind their cover girl!

Let me start this week by saying, I try not t o hold back when I write...My personal feelings and life are always front and center in my blogs...But I'll be honest...I've been holding some things back for awhile...Since around Thanksgiving my wife has been dealing with a bacterial infection called C._diff...It was brought on by of all things, an antibiotic...She had been on this medicine for about 20 days to get rid of an infection in a tooth that needed work...When she got a serious rash, and then the horrible stomach issues, she remembered reading the info from the pharmacy, and how it could cause such things, including death...Wow, just the drug I want to take...

There were too many tests, and too much waiting....And too much reading about C.diff...Like THIS...The idea of a fecal transplant grossed out my wife, but being the good guy that I am, I offered to shit down her throat!

Finally late in January, it was confirmed and she was prescribed medicine that often fixes the problem...If not totally, it can manage it...She just finished the meds, and things seem to be okay...Within two days of being on the medicine, the shit-fest had stopped...So that is looking better now...Just in time for family troubles...As if the stress of work, and kids, and dealing with that wasn't enough, her father who has been dealing with dementia, and Alzheimer's, has gotten really bad...Last time we were there, he was asking where Molly came from...Has no recollection of her...My wife's mother is slowly losing some things upstairs too...The stress of dealing with my father in law has been wearing on her too...And then her brother had a car wreck, which lead to us finding out that he had a bit of a legal issue...

We spent too much time this week figuring out what was going on, and cleaning up his mess...She spent Saturday in PA. dealing with things, while I stayed home with the kids...Next she has to get with her sisters and figure out the next move for what to do about their folks...It's been a real pain in the ass...

Plus my cracked up ribs are still killing me...And I clearly wrenched something in my back during my spill, because I've been having muscle spasms that hurt like a bitch...So things have sucked lately...I'm only writing about it now, because I needed to get it off my chest, and I feel like I've been distant and distracted when it comes to writing...I can't bitch to my wife...This is all 10 times harder on her...

Okay...So, there was a positive in the sports world...Notre Dame swept Michigan in hockey this weekend...Sweeping Michigan in anything, is always good!


In other sports news...The media was all buzzing about "The Paterno Report" that was released Sunday morning...I called bullshit right away...This report was paid for by the Paterno family...Done by people who were supporters of Paterno...2 were donors to PSU...This for the Paterno lovers, by the Paterno lovers...There is no way you can expect honesty in it...Nor should it have gotten any air time at all...Mrs. Paterno, maybe Joe never told you shit, but he knew Sandusky was a piece of shit, and he kept a lid on it, and let the child molesting and raping continue...Please lady, shut the fuck up...Your husband was an asshole....And all those still holding onto their blind loyalty to him are looking like assholes too...

There's a link to the stupid Paterno family site on the Q-o-t-D....

I watched the Grammy's Sunday night...There were some good performances, but I found it sad that most of the awards were given earlier...So many people not getting their time, while CBS couldn't stop showing us Taylor Swift singing and dancing to everyone who performed...And I'd love it if they actually put some performers on stage that we haven't seen countless times before...Sure the hipster, folksy guys get their time this year, but that will be that for awhile...But enough with Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Elton John...That old Queen at the piano reading the lyrics...Christ!

And acting like Justin Timberlake is the greatest musician ever, and we all have missed him so desperately while he's been acting...Yuck!

Jack White, please stop trying so hard to be the Johnny Depp of rock & roll...You're so fucking unique and cooler then everyone else...You're not! and Johnny Depp owned the Viper Room, hard to get cooler then that...And I can play average, loud distorted guitar, and chuck it at the end too...Not impressed!

This week, I leave you with this...


Have a week...

The Beeze.
