Well, the World Series is set, and the Boston Red Sox are heading back there to take on the St. Louis Cardinals...And yeah, this household will be rooting for Mrs. Beeze's hometown Sox...Plus, I hate the Cardinals anyways!

I plan on keeping this post short...The Beeze is feeling beat up and tired...Friday, while at work, I was getting some stuff from a walk-in freezer, when a not well stacked, box of frozen duck breasts fell on my head...I was okay...My head hurt...And my neck and shoulder slowly started aching, but I finished the day...But the wife was up my ass to go to the ER and get checked out...So I did...A couple of Doctors checked me out...Their main concern was a concussion...My main concern was my neck...In the end, I'm okay, and was told, "You'll feel worse tomorrow, take lots of Advil." 

Yep, some cock-sucker went to college for 8 years to come up with that...It's all guess work in a white coat!

Friday evening I had promised to take my daughter and her friend to our local high school's football game...They were on the road this week, so we took a quick drive out to that...Our team was down 21-0 and had two players on their way to the hospital by the end of the 1st quarter...They got smoked...The final was 49-21, and the parents and fans on our side were going wild when out team started playing well on D and scoring in the 4th quarter...I just wanted to stand up and scream...'Relax people, it's our first string against their second and third stringers!'   I get being proud when your kids don't give up, but grab hold of some perspective...Your senior suddenly looks good, because the kid across from him is a sophomore...

We got home later then I wanted to, after stopping for a bite to eat...The place had a band that was doing all 80's covers, so I got a kick out of it, while the girls, not so much...I crashed in  my chair watching Louisville choke away their season to UCF...

Saturday I was suppose to finish redoing our garage roof with my buddy...Luckily it rained all damn day...The Garage work waited until Sunday...That all mixed with the constant run around with the kids has me wiped out...

Saturday night Notre Dame beat USC 14-10...A win is a win...And a win over USC is always good...The Irish defense carried the team, especially after QB Tommy Rees was knocked out of the game...The Irish coaches have said backup, Andrew Hendrix has the whole playbook, but it didn't look like that Saturday, as they barely let him throw...The few passes he threw were bad...The Irish kept it on the ground and tried to kill clock...Luckily, between the defense, and USC just not knowing who they are, the Irish pulled out the win...

There were plenty of upsets this in College Football...Checkout what UNCLE_B.O.B had to say...Also give TAGE a read, as he covered the Pats, Red Sox, College Football, the Mess at Grambling State, what a disgrace that is...and more...

I also want to share this...Very few people paid attention to the Miami (Ohio) and Akron game...Hell, I don't know who won...Let me look it up...Akron won 24-17...But you gotta see this fullback, just destroy this linebacker...

 

#43 from Miami is fucking wrecked...

The last thing I want to get into is Maxim Lapierre's dirty hit on Dan Boyle last week...

 

Lapierre only got 5 games for this...To me, that's bullshit...This guy is a repeat offender...Always talking shit...Always diving...And plenty of cheap shots...

 

 

 

 

And just ask Bruins fans about what a little asshole Lapierre is...The NHL has been talking tough about heads sots and hits from behind, and here is a guy who has a record, and he only gets 5 games...Fucking bullshit...

Not to mention, that Boyle is the second key guy on my fantasy team to be knocked out with a head injury...(Rick Nash is the other...Plus James Neal got hurt 4 minutes into the season...FML!)

That's it for now...Have a week...

The Beeze.

Tags: NCAA Backell Kelly Scaletta The Beeze Johnny Manziel Teddy Bridgewater Tajh Boyd Notre Dame Football College Football Douchebags Assholes

Well here we are...This is the first time I have opened my laptop in 5 days...Yes I looked at some things via my iphone, but other than looking at Twitter, Facebook, and a bit of news, I took a mini-vacation from the Internet...I mean, Summer is at it's end...My oldest and I took in our first high school football game of the season Friday...And yes, College Football season kicked off this week...So there is no shortage of sports to write about....

So why not start with the hot topic...Johnny Manziel...The NCAA hit him with a meaningless, weak, 1 half suspension for the first game...The first game being against Rice....That'll teach him! And anyone who thinks he didn't break the rules...You're foolish...There is a story quietly floating around that this could be an even bigger deal, that the NCAA wants to keep quiet, and that may be why they reacted so swiftly, and softly with Manziel...A CLIENT_LIST of College Football players going back to 2004 who signed shit for money...

But then there was Manziel, taking the field in the second half against Rice...

Hey, I'm okay with trash talk to a degree, but when all this shit just went down, and your first move out of the gate is to air-sign autographs...That's a dick-bag move...But wait, there's more...

 

Look, Johnny just threw a TD pass...Now he's counting his money....Fucking dick-bag...Then late in the game after throwing another TD pass, he went and talked trash to some Rice players, and got flagged for it...

Big, fucking, Dick-Bag....After this move, the coach yanked him...And he's got to be concerned about how many more headaches is this kid going to give the program...And while Johnny is talking shit, maybe he should realize that Rice may not have won, but they just showed everyone in the country how weak the A&M defense is...Rice scored 31 points while gaining 509 yards...306 of those on the ground...

Manziel has talent, but he's clearly an asshole...For the record, I'm rooting for him to fail, and fail big-time...This now brings us to Backell...If you don't know him, he's a douchebag from way back in the days when we all blogged at Sporting News...There are many reasons to dislike this guy...Like being a liar, and a fake...Saturday, he started a threat on a Facebook page, commenting about Manziel's taunting...

"I've just got say, Johnny Manziel is really putting his signature on this game.

I went there."

People came in, and dropped their one liners, and two-cents, and then suddenly Backell called out everyone's comments ripping Manziel for being "#sechaters"

Well, I do hate the SEC, but as many of us pointed out, this was not about how we may or may not feel about the SEC...It was how we felt about Manziel, his antics, and his disrespect for his teammates, opponents, the game, and the NCAA...Which, I have no respect for the NCAA either!

So "F5", you wanted to stir the pot...You wanted some attention...Well here you have it...You made it into Monday Moaning...I can only speak for myself, although I know many who feel the same...You're a hack...You're an arrogant douchebag...And you're an asshole...You and Johnny Manziel will make a lovely couple, eating each others asses in your own little, asshole hell!

-In other College Football news...North Dakota State upset Kansas State 24-21...If that isn't sexy enough...Eastern Washington upset (#25) Oregon State 49-46...Those FCS schools are fucking with people!

And all of you who get pissed about hearing about (#19) Boise State late in every season, and how they could throw a monkey wrench in the system...No worries...The Washington Huskies dominated Boise State 38-6...(#18) Nebraska squeaked out a 37-34 win over Wyoming...I'd like to thank Ohio State for not covering the spread against Buffalo...The Buckeyes only beat the Bulls 40-20...That's my gambling tip people...First couple weeks of the season, when the big guns have a cream-puff on the schedule...Take the puff with the points...Love that shit!

-My Fighting Irish were not spectacular in their 28-6 win over Temple...They looked fucking amazing during their first two offensive series, and it looked like it was going to get real ugly, real fast...But the Irish got a bit sloppy...Too many penalties...The Special Teams were awful...I'm trying to get a scholarship this week to be their new kicker...At times the defense seem to be taking plays off, and were playing a lot of bend don't break...

There is plenty of talent on this team, but if they don't clean it up, they'll get smoked at Michigan next week...

Molls was happy with the win...

 

-The big game of the week was (#5) Georgia at (#8) Clemson...I give both teams credit for opening their season with this big game this...If Clemson loses they're out of National Championship contention...If Georgia loses, they'll have to run the table the rest of the way, and get some luck...The game lived up to the hype...And so did Clemson QB Tajh Boyd, (my #2 pick for the Heisman) who passed for 3 TD's and rushed for 2 more leading Clemson to a 38-35 win...

-My #1 guy for the Heisman, Louisville QB, Teddy Bridgewater torched Ohio U. for 355 yards and 5 TD's Sunday in 49-7 win...Even more impressive to me was Louisville's defense shutting down the Bobcats strong ground game, holding them to just 81 yards, and forcing them to try to do it all through the air...

-Lastly, I want to talk about Keith Olbermann...I liked him early on...Then in his later years at MSNBC his act got old...He became quite annoying...But now he is back talking sports...He's doing some things with sports, that made him appealing in his early "Countdown" days...Last week he had a great segment taking apart the NCAA...Then I saw this...Talking about concussions and and idiot columnist, Pete Prisco...

I know Olbermann has a rep as a douche, but he's doing some good stuff on ESPN2 week nights at 11:00PM...

That's it for now...

Have a Week...

So, you may have noticed that my blogging has slacked off...I use to post at least three times a week...Not so much anymore...I won't lie, there are times I want to write, but there are times that I think about it, and I say, "ahhhh, screw it!" I'll also say this...Back in late December, 2012 I saw and heard a lot of people that were thrilled 2012 was ending...They hated that year...No me...I loved it...2013 on the other hand has sucked ass...My wife and I are looking forward to 2014...That is after the financial gauntlet that his December passes...Both the girls birthdays and Christmas...Yeah, December gets tight...

This year we dealt with a bunch of crap with my wife's parents...Her father had multiple strokes...His Dementia has gone wild...He's a totally different person now...Her mom losing her mind, from dealing with him...Getting them settled into an assisted living place...We've burned up our vacation time and money dealing with that stuff...The last step for awhile hopefully was taken care of this past week...My wife sold her parents house...There was some sadness mixed with relief...

Then we got a notice from the city...We've been cited for our garage...The roof started ripping off back during the Ohio version of "Super Storm Sandy"...We have an asshole neighbor who has complained before...He also complained about our hedge...The city said it needs to be shorter than 8 feet...This pisses me off because asshole neighbor has 10 foot tall hedge...The Beeze will be making some calls this week...Too bad one will be to a roofer...

There is other stuff on my mind...Work related stuff....The Beeze is feeling unappreciated after almost 20 years with this company...These fuckers have been cheap with the cash, and clearly loyalty doesn't matter anymore...So, I been looking...And I've had offers...The wife and I are weighing the options and something will be settled on soon...

With that all said, writing has fallen by the wayside...But Friday I found a few things that caught my interest and shared them HERE...

-So I cam across this Sunday evening...

Yep...Those are your highest paid public employees...In 27 states it a head footballcoach...13 states it a head basketball coach...College Presidents took 5 states...Pretty scary...Even scarier when I read this....Is anyone surprised that the top dog in Nevada is a Medical School Plastic Surgeon!?! Holy Shit, even in Hawaii it's a football coach...I thought the State would have had Dog the Bounty Hunter on the payroll by now!

"This revenue rarely makes its way back to the general funds of these universities. Looking at data from 2011-2012, athletic departments at 99 major schools lost an average of $5 million once you take out revenue generated from “student fees” and “university subsidies.” If you take out “contributions and donations”’some of which might have gone to the universities had they not been lavished on the athletic departments’ this drops to an average loss of $17 million, with just one school (Army) in the black. All this football/basketball revenue is sucked up by coach and AD salaries, by administrative and facility costs, and by the athletic department’s non-revenue generating sports; it’s not like it’s going to microscopes and Bunsen burners."

So why exactly are our tax dollars going to pay these guys?

"Far exceeding these base salaries is the “additional compensation” that almost all of these coaches receive, which is tied to media appearances, apparel contracts, and fundraising. While this compensation does not come directly from the state fund it is guaranteed in the coaches’ contracts; if revenue falls short, the school’and thus the state’is on the hook to cover the difference."

More and more I find myself being turned off by the world of college sports...I hate saying that because I have always loved college football, hockey, and baseball...I just don't know anymore...College Coaches are getting millions, and communities and cities have to keep laying off Police and Firefighters, and cutting elementary school programs...But fuck it, Pay Urban Meyer a fuck-ton to coach football, while the department he works for loses money...AWESOME!

-So now that I bagged on big-time college football...Let me talk about some bad news from Notre Dame...A private school, so you folks in Indiana can't be pissed about how they spend money!

The Irish's starting outside linebacker, Danny Spond has retired from Football...After missing the first two games last year while hospitalized with migraine headaches and what was thought to be concussion symptoms, Spond played the rest of the year, and caught the attention of NFL scouts...Many were looking forward to what Spond would do in his senior season, and had high hopes...

When it was announced, it was said Spond was doing so for medical reasons...All the assumptions have it being a concussion thing, but now that is being squashed...Spond was seen walking into the facility with a cane, so the reason why is still unclear, and Irish fans are waiting for Spond to explain...Coach Brian Kelly said, "He loves his teammates, but I think he did what was in his best interest for his future." Kelly also said Spond, who was Kelly's first committed recruit, "He'll be with us every day. He'll travel with us. He'll help coach."

I hope Health-wise Spond will be okay...He'll be missed on that Defense...It will fall on Junior Ben Councell and Freshman Jaylon Smith to pick up the slack at OLB...

-Now last week I promised some college football posts were on the way...That still is going to happen...I've been doing some homework...This week my Heisman preview/prediction will go up...And just a teaser for ya...Johnny Football isn't in my top 5...That's how this year is gonna go!

That's it for now...

Have a week...

Well, the Fighting Irish had a good start to their season! Notre Dame opened up in Dublin, Ireland, against NAVY...This is a team that ND has learned not to take lightly...And they didn't...The Irish rolled to a 50-10 victory...In case you missed it, since it was an early kickoff here in the States, here are the highlights...




The only problem I had watching this game, was when a couple of Jehovah Witness assholes knocked on my door...Hey, I'm all for religious tolerance, except when you're an asshole who doesn't acknowledge the Flag, and you if you are disturbing me watching a Notre Dame game...I opened the door, I could smell it on them...This dope started opening his mouth, and I said, "What are you?" He replied timidly, "Jehovah Witness." My wife saw the steam coming off of me, and I let loose..."Get out here! Get the fuck off my porch!"

They left, but I wasn't quite satisfied, so I stepped outside with my cup of coffee as they were walking towards my neighbor's house and I yelled, "It's Saturday morning, there's a Notre Dame Football game on...Get the hell out of here!" Then gathered with another couple of these clowns and got in a car...I noticed a few people looking out there doors at this point...They slowed as they passed my house, at this point I was almost at the curb, just pissed that they knocked on my door...The one dope leans his head out and says, "We didn't mean to disturb you," I didn't let him finish and yelled, "Well you did! Get the fuck out of here!"

I walked inside pleased, feeling I did something good for all of mankind...My wife, looking at me saying, "Jesus, you're so mean to people sometimes. Watch your game." That's all I wanted...All I wanted...

I had gotten up Saturday morning around 8:30 AM...AT 1:30 AM Sunday, I was still up, and watching College Football...I didn't go to sleep until after 2:30AM...Of those 18 hours I spent about 12 watching college football...I love this time of year!

And the Notre Dame game wasn't the only highlight...Little Ohio University going to not-so Happy Valley, and beating Penn State 24-14 was awesome...I was thoroughly disgusted that ESPN made this their noon game, and hyped it all week, by swinging on Penn State's balls...15 minutes on SportsCenter Friday night...20 minutes before kickoff, loving on Penn State...Just months after numerous ESPN talking heads were out for blood on the PSU campus...Now they want to hold them, and snuggle them...Suck my ass! And the announcers talking about the PSU defense being the anchor of the team...

Really? Well the anchor gave up over 100 yards rushing, and 72 receiving to 5-9 RB Beau Blankenship...And gave up 324 yards passing to QB Tyler Tettleton...As if PSU didn't have enough to be embarrassed about, then they got pushed around the field for the second half, by a MAC school!

I found it depressing that the local media had a huge boner because Ohio State beat up on Miami of Ohio, like they should have, but just passed by Ohio U. working PSU...Fucking twats around here!

It was also fun seeing Michigan look like children, just getting rolled over by Alabama...You know, every time Big Ten people start getting cocky, and say they're just as good as the SEC, something like this happens, and the gap between SEC and Big Ten talent/skill/coaching is put on display for everyone to see...Right now the Big Ten is hoping Nebraska still has some Big-12 left in them, while Urban Meyer tries to make Ohio State a SEC North team...

Now that I have covered that stuff, I thought I'd let everyone know, the kids are doing great at their new school...Little Beeze is adjusting to all the rules, and he's in for a rude awakening this week when he starts getting homework...He's going to be tested, and pushed a lot more here...His big sister is settling right in, having been craving a little more out of her last school...She has a couple of good friends already, and they have talked her into joining the school band...That's not a shock, since she's always loved going to the High School Football games, to see the band...

And thank God for the band...Because our local team sucks balls Friday night...I stopped looking at the scoreboard in the 3rd quarter when we were down 42-7...But halftime was great, as the Marching Band was awesome...They were the first and only thing to bring our fans to their feet...The crowd roared and gave them a standing ovation.

This past week I took vacation days, to help with getting into the swing of the school year...After the older two were at school, it was just me and Molly...


Yeah, plenty of park time...Her and her swings...



It was good week...And my wife had to admit, that I'm a better Mom...Yeah, I tried to TELL you people!

She also starts a new job, at the company she left less then a year ago...They reached out to her, and made her an offer she couldn't refuse...She's happy about it...The kids aren't, because it means she'll be working a little later...I'm not looking forward to the two weeks of training she has to do out of town...I'm good, but I don't want to be a single parent...the company is flying her home on the weekend in between, so it won't be too bad...

That's it for now...Gotta get that grill ready for some Labor Day fun...

Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.

Yep, just one week left of Summer for the kids, and then it's back to school...Actually, off to a new school for mine...Catholic School really dinged me last week, as I dropped $450 on uniforms for my two oldest kids...You'd think those damn skirts were made out of gold! And sadly for Little Beeze, I doubt his teacher looks like Miss Jones there up above...But the switch will be good for them...Better then the Hell hole they were at last year!

That said, we're going to start this week talking about a different Catholic School...The University of Notre Dame...By this point of the Summer, I have usually posted some Pre-season Notre Dame blogs...I also normally put out other College Football predictions, including my Heisman pick...Well, this year I've been slacking in that department...I'll be honest, I just haven't cared as much...Why? I don't know, I think the biggest reason has been my kids, As I touched on in what I wrote HERE Saturday...

Luckily, ESPN hires dolts like Rick Reilly, instead of guys like me...Reilly, an over-hyped columnist for years with SI, and now ESPN, like most douchebag columnists, hates bloggers like me...They think the world only needs their shitty opinion...They do the same thing as us bloggers, except they have a boss who gives them a deadline, and doesn't let them write words like fuck! Well Reilly, you can eat my ass!

Reilly posted a blog...Umm, I mean column, on ESPN.com...I'm not linking their shit...They don't get any free hits from me! Ricky boy was all up in arms about Notre Dame...Saying how he no longer loves Notre Dame football, because he "grew up." Did Ya!?!

Reilly is unhappy with the media coverage Notre Dame gets...Umm, look at your bosses assshole! He is unhappy that they have lost 10 of their last 12 bowl games, and 9 of their last 10 to USC...Us real fans aren't happy about that either...He is also salty that ND isn't in a conference for football...Anyone who has followed me, knows that I'm a loyal ND fan, and I have repeatedly said they should be in a conference...But I don't make the rules...Although, I should!

Rick Reilly put his foot down and wrote this...
"From now on:
• Notre Dame no longer gets its own television deal with NBC.

• Notre Dame no longer gets to be the only school in the country with an inexplicable seat at the BCS decisions-making table.

• Notre Dame no longer gets its yearly undeserved hellahype in preseason rankings and preseason All-America teams."



Well Rick...The NCAA and you have no power, or authority to tell NBC they can't pay Notre Dame boat loads of money to broadcast their football games...Nor would any other University say no to a major network putting that kind of cash in their pockets...

If the BCS is going to give Nd that seat at the "decision-making table," that's on them...It's the BCS' fault...Not Notre Dame's...And the reason they do give them that seat, is because as many people like you, are out there hating Notre Dame, there are plenty that love Notre Dame...Just ask the over 30,000 people from the U.S. who are traveling to Ireland to see Notre Dame play Navy there...ND fans travel well, and spend money...That's why they have the seat...Because all the NCAA and BCS care about is money...

And for the "yearly undeserved hellahype in preseason rankings and preseason All-America teams." Again, that's another thing you can't pin on Notre Dame...That's on you, your bosses, and all your buddies in the media...Notre Dame doesn't put out the AP poll...Notre Dame doesn't put out "Lindy's" pre-season magazine...Notre Dame doesn't write the "USA Today" or "Sports Illustrated" Polls...If you're pissed about about Notre Dame's standing in the sports media, then go on the air at ESPN and blast them, and the rest of the media...But you won't Rick...You're too much of a fucking coward!

And you don't like Notre Dame's standing with the NCAA and BCS...Take it up with them...I agree, ND should be in a conference...But if the NCAA isn't forcing them into a conference, and says it's okay to have their own TV deal, and the BCS wants ND's input, you can't blame Notre Dame for saying okay, and reaping the benefits...When ESPN threw money at you Rick Reilly, and sweet talked you, and gave you what you wanted, you said 'okay, see ya SI!' So why is not alright that Notre Dame says okay? Is this all because your Daddy issues Rick, and how it hurt him so much that he flunked out of Notre Dame? Or is it just because you're douche, and you needed something for your deadline?

Okay, I'm through with you Reilly...

-Saturday we were at our friend Brian an May's house for a cookout...Brian is a big Packers fan, being that he's from Wisconsin...He was waiting for me to bust his balls about the Browns beating the Packers this week in their pre-season game...Nope, not gonna happen...It's pre-season...Pre-season doesn't mean shit...The Browns only had to see Rodgers for what, 3 series...Sure there were some good things, but there were plenty of bad too...Especially the Packers lack of depth at QB...Okay, so I got one dig in...

-I hope everyone had good weekend...We worked in some quality park time Sunday morning/afternoon...It was a perfect day...Molly was rocking the swings, as usual...


Then I got some yard work done, and fired up the grill for some burgers and dogs...

-Just a quick ad here...All my pre-seaon college football crap, will be coming at you Friday...Better start doing my homework...Okay, Molly says it's time to go...


Have a week...

The Beeze.
