Tiger and Von, not a well kept secret, World Baseball Classic, NCAA Tournament in this weeks edition ofÖ
Man this overtime at work is draining my batteries.
Working flat mail that has to be manually sorted and my eyes are hurting.
So Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are an item. Woods posted the following on Facebook:
``This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating.''
On Vonnís Facebook page she statedĒ
``I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy.''
All they wanted to do was make the public aware that they were dating and that everything else is private between the two. I don't think it worked.
It is a disgrace that the United States did not even make it to the semi-finals of the World Baseball Classic. There is just too much talent. I know the $$$ís that ballplayers make, make the decision hard as to avoid injury.
Changes need to be made to the classic.
I must of missed something in my geography class back in the day when I went to school. Can someone explain how San Jose, California is part of the East Regional. I could understand if I lived in Alaska that maybe that would work, because its East of where I live. Here is more stupidity: How about Philadelphia, Pa. in the South? Austin, Texas in the East? Dayton, Ohio in the West? Be real, the NCAA college basketball selection committee had to smoking some funny stuff.
Got to give props to the Miami Heat. They were getting beat pretty bad by the Cavaliers. Down by 27 points the Heat pulled it out.
It will be a long season for the New York Yankees. There pitching better hold up, otherwise a long season will become even longer. They have the chance to finish last in the Division. Its been a long time since that happened.
Do the Houston Astros really have a chance? Nah.
I think the Tampa Bay Rays need to think about relocating to another City or State. They have a good team but no fan support.
Nothing would please me more than to see the Los Angeles Dodgers not make the playoffs. $$$ can't by happiness.
All hail the King?? Air Jordan out of air?? Who is Lynn?? 4 team playoff suck?? President Obama not making friends with Red Sox fans?? This and more in this weeks edition ofÖ.
Is this a paid endorsement? I wish. Congrats James for a great NBA finals.
Congratulations go out to the Miami Heat. They played great basketball on their way to winning the NBA Title.
Some have called him cocky, some have called him selfish, some have called him arrogant, but now all have to call him a champion. That includes me. I was upset because he didnít go to my favorite basketball team the Brooklyn Nets. Sure it is easier when there are other superstars on the team your going to, but that doesnít make it that much easier to win a championship. Otherwise the Heat would have won it all last year.
But you have to give credit where credit is due, and to that I congratulate King James. Got to say LeBron James played ďLights outĒ during the Heats run to the Title. He carried the team the whole way. He was the runaway winner of the Playoff MVP award. He turned his game around when the Heat needed it.
Who would have thought that Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey (11-1) has more wins than Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay combined.
But even more surprising is that Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn (10-3) also has more wins than Lee and Halladay.
Just figured out why the Phillies are 9 games behind the Nationals, no Howard, Lee or Halladay.
He might have been the NBAís greatest player ever, by as an owner, Michael Jordan is a shell of his playing days. Why did he pick Mike Dunlap to coach the team?
He had†some of the leagues smartest coaches interview for his head coaching job, so what does Air-Head Jordan do, he takes a college coach with no real head coaching experience to guide his team.
How can anyone sue a youngster? A New Jersey woman is. Elizabeth Lloyd was sitting at a picnic table near a fenced in bullpen when she was hit in the face with a ball that catcher Matthew Migliaccio threw while warming up a pitcher. Lloyd is asking for $150,000 in damages.
Is this the new trend is celebrating a save?
Apparently the Reds were not happy with the situation as several Reds players talked to Chapman after the game.
I am not a fan of the new college football 4 team playoff. This was made to suit the SEC and the Big-10 and could suck even more than the BCS. It would be better if the NCAA gets off their fat asses and realigned the conferences to 10 twelve team conferences. The winner from each conference championship will go to a playoff to determine the National Champions. It can be done.
Way to go Mr. President. The President, during a fundraiser in Boston, playfully joked with the crowd, referencing the trade between the Red Sox and White Sox that sent Kevin Youkilis to Chicago.
President Barack Obama certainly isn't helping his campaign in Red Sox Nation.
"And finally Boston, I just want to say, thank you for Youkilis," Obama said.
The President's quip was met with some laughs, but mostly with boos and "Youk" chants from the crowd at Symphony Hall.
"I'm just saying, he's going to have to change the color of his socks," added Obama, a known White Sox fan.
The rough crowd caused Obama to backtrack on his jokes and realize that he should not have mixed baseball in with his re-election campaign.
"I didn't think I was going to get any boos out of here," Obama said. "I should not have brought up baseball. I understand. My mistake! My mistake! You've got to know your crowd."
Well, I'm here to report to you all, that Cleveland is not burning...Yes, LeBron James and the Miami Heat just won the NBA championship, and while plenty of people are on Twitter voicing their displeasure about the situation, they aren't going all Vancouver and burning the damn place to the ground...I mean it wasn't like the Heat beat Cleveland...They beat Oklahoma City...Sure most of Cleveland hitched themselves onto the OKC bandwagon, but they didn't give a shit who was playing...They just didn't want LeBron James to win...Well, toughs hit I guess...The dick-head won...
Now can we get back to say, maybe the scrappy Cleveland Indians, who have been playing their collective balls off...Nobody gave this team a chance of doing shit this season, yet here they sit at the top of the Central Division...Now, I'm a realist...The Central is crap, but none the less, many expected the Tribe to be in the cellar...No one expected Jason Kipnis to have 11 HR's and 41 RBI's did they? No one expected Derek Lowe to have 7 wins...Shit, some didn't even think he would make the squad...And the teams Ace, Justin Masterson may just be starting to put it all together...And the bullpen has been solid...
It sure will be nice to maybe hear the radio dolts in this town actually talking about a local team, instead of a douchebag that hightailed it out of here a couple years ago...Oh, and guys, ease up on the Browns chatter...These local radio dopes are dying for there to be a QB controversy in Browns camp...If you really think Weeden won't be the starter, then you should be fired...
Now, Monday I was all over the Sandusky trial...I'm still on it...The jury has begun deliberating, and as that happened, news broke that Sandusky's adopted son Matt was waiting in the wings to testify against his adopted father...The prosecution had him ready as a rebuttal witness, if Jerry Sandusky took the stand himself...apparently Matt had informed the prosecution that he too had been a victim of abuse...Which I had suspected after one of the other victims accounts about being in the shower with Matt and Jerry, and when Jerry started splashing soap on the boys, Matt got the hell out of there, like he knew what was next...
Then Travis Weaver was on Rock Center, telling his story of abuse at the hands of Sandusky...Sandusky started getting creepy with him when he was 10...His father worked at PSU, and Sandusky had threatened to get him fired if Travis went to the police...Sandusky also talked about wanting to adopt Weaver, a story that Weaver's father confirmed...At 14 Weaver left moved to Cleveland to live with his mother, but the damage was done...From the interview you can still see Weaver is trying to get past this all...He has filed a civil suit seeking damages from Sandusky, Penn State, and Sandusky's charuty the Second Mile...The case has been suspended, pending the outcome of this trial...
Weaver is not part of this case, but they have his Grand Jury testimony...In a post-script for the interview, it was explained that the state has Weaver and others in their back pocket, in case something goes wrong with this trial, and they need to go after Sandusky again...
Now before I end this, I thought I'd give some love to my Baseball team...This year, we are the Cubs...But we aren't some bunch of lovable loser...Remember, this is a everyone wins, no keeping score league...Well, if you did, like I do in my head, we would have lost our first two games...But with a little extra work, the gang is coming around...Our two games this week, we dominated...Everyone is starting to hit...Their fielding is getting better every game...But there is something I need to work with the Little Beeze on...Kid has a home run trot going...All the time...I told him he better put it in the outfield if he wants to jog...Any other time he's running around like a maniac...But on the base paths he's jogging...We'll work it out...
I said give me five minutes...And that's what I said to my wife before I started writing this...Yep, nothing like a good five minute fuck...Here's one of the best five minute fucks you'll ever see on TV...
I rarely watch basketball, and the NBA even less since it coincides with the NHL season and that takes priority but once the playoffs start Iíll watch the Celtics and of course root for anyone playing LeDouche and the Miami Heat. James makes it easy to hate him, this entire Thunder team makes it really easy to love them. Here are some observations Iíve made in this post season.
Watching Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in press conferences itís obvious to the eye theyíre younger than Wade and James, but I think theyíre more mature, because this isnítí about them individually, itís about the team and that alone is refreshing to watch. Thereís no ďShowtimeĒ or ďLOOK AT MEĒ vibes given off by Thunder players, itís all you ever see around the Heat. Arrogance? Címon, if James is King of anything itís arrogance. Remember last yearís season ending press conference when he said those that spend their time hating on him and wanting him to fail would have to wake up the next day and would have to go on with the lives they had, as if to say, itís way better to be me than you miserable bastards, ring or no ring? Who didnít want to hit him in the head with a brick and say, ďThis is the reason why you will never be loved, and the haterís will now have a reason to wish you even more failure you dopeĒ!
I saw a post game video today of Thunder coach Scott Brooks , Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook walking off the court and shaking the hands of little kids and fans on the way to the dressing room, when do you see the Heat give their fans the time of day unless itís to turn to them and pound their chest in some cancer curing dunk theyíre supposed to make anyway? Itís clear the Thunder truly love their fans and they embrace them, they play terrific at home and it shows, they havenít lost there in the playoffs. You canít say that about the Heat.
How about the ESPiN poll yesterday, EVERY state picked the Thunder to win with the exception of Florida. Haterís or is it because this Thunder team is simply a better team? Maybe itís a combination of both. The Heat have a few guys that can deliver, but they rarely do so consistently, the Thunder seem to be a well oiled machine with a great starting five and a bench that gives stars minutes to rest without coughing up leads or letting the game get away from them. Even when the Thunder are down by double digits it doesnít faze them they just kick it into another gear, how many times have we seen this Heat team or James just give up? There's†a lot of character on the Thunder, there are†a lot of characters on the HeatÖadvantage Thunder.
Another side story in this NBA finals is Kendrick Perkins, a former Celtic big man who Danny Ainge sent packing in a contract year after he had reconstructive knee surgery. When Perkins came back and Ainge didnít feel heíd ever be the same off Perk went, and he didnítí like it, he loved Boston and Boston loved him, they still do and would take him back in a minute. But watching him succeed again now in his 3rd NBA Finals itís not hard to root for this comeback story either, just one more reason to want the OKC Thunder to win it all. Can they? You betcha! Will they? Oh, I think so. Look, I know the Thunder are only up 1-0 but I donít think they lose game 2 either and if the aged, broken down Celtics as theyíre called can take their talents to South Beach and kick the snot out of LeDouche and Co. what evidence is there this Thunder team canít do the same? Theyíre peaking at the right time, the Thunder have sent the defending champion Mavs packing, disposed of Kobe and the Lakers and polished off the Spurs who hadnít lost a game in 50 days!!! If Iím the Heat, Iím concerned, if Iím James, Iím trying to figure out how to shut that little voice in my head up thatís saying, ďhere we go again, no ringĒ.
Cheering for the Thunder to win, rooting for the Heat to loseÖitís not often you get the best of both worlds, so Iíll be enjoying every second of this series! †
Alright, I honestly pay no attention to Basketball during the regular season...And really, for most, if not all of the playoffs...But for some reason I found myself watching the Oklahoma City Thunder polish off the Lakers...Shit, the Thunder look good...So I started popping in on their games with the Spurs, and my built-in hatred for LeBron James, had me watching bits and pieces of the Heat and Celtics games...As these two series went on, I was watching more and more...And here are a few of my observations...
Basketball players are fucking pussies...It's not like these are a bunch of little guys...Look at LeBron James...He's 6ft 8...250 pounds, and he cries like a bitch about any and all contact...But it's not just him...I've seen it in all these games...These fucking guys get bumped and bitch for foul calls...The slightest, shit is called a foul, and there is no consistency in how the refs call this shit...Fuckers in the media rave about what great athletes these fuckers are, and all I see is a bunch of cunts over 6-5, and 200 lbs. crying that some one touched them...These ass-hats couldn't handle playing a real contact sport like Hockey or football...
And the shit that is called for a foul is gay as fuck...A fucking guy from Miami drives to the basket, his arm brushes a Celtic, and it's a foul on the Celtic...WHAT!?! I saw Westbrook from OKC catch a pass in stride, and stop as soon as he had the ball, and some twat from the Spurs ran into him, and the refs call a foul on Westbrook...WHAT!?! Fucking James just threw his Shoulder into Rondo, and they called a foul on Rondo...WHAT!?!
This shit is retarded...And it's not like the refs in The NBA have the best rep, after one of them wrote a fucking book about fixing games...And how many fucking time outs do you get in Basketball...I swear to God it seems like each team gets 30...The last 4 minutes of a game takes a hour...Fuck you and play cunts! In Hockey, you get 1 time out, for the whole fucking game...Basketball is for twats!
And why the fuck does everyone talk about LeBron James...And why the fuck did he win the MVP...Fucking Kevin Durant just won his 3rd scoring title...He's 23 and has 3 scoring titles...Holy fuck the media is stupid...LBJ can suck balls...And no matter who wins the Heat Celtics series, they're fucking toast...The Thunder are fucking Monsters...Young, Hungry, more talented monsters then, the heat or Celtics can put out there with them...
Shit I was rooting for Boston, but after seeing THESE_3 videos, I'm hoping the Heat squeak in to the Finals...Then Durant can take James to fucking school...And fuck Dwayne Wade...He's a cheap shot throwing, cry-baby, clutch 3-point missing, bitch!
And as I sit hear ranting about how stupid, and shitty Basketball is, I glad to know, I'm not alone...I just found this clip from Bill Burr's podcast on Monday...
See, Bill gets it...Too Bad Boston's retarded mayor doesn't have a clue...Could you people vote this moosh mouth out already...What a fucking idiot...
