TV viewer turns in Pro Golfer, The man with the Golden Voice, ESPN your house for deviants, can you top this?? It’s all here, and more, in this Edition of Rants and Raves

Is ESPN a cesspool of deviants?? Former ESPN analyst Steve Philips messing around with a 22 yr old assistant, Erin Edwards bathroom scandal, Jeremy Greene (son of former football coach Dennis Green) child porn and drugs, now comes two other scandals:

The first one concerns Will Selva who was suspended for taking portions of a newspaper column and using them as his own. He took the information from Kevin Ding of Southern California’s Orange Country Register.

The other scandal, had Ron Franklin removed from the Fiesta Bowl after he called Jeannine Edwards, an ESPN sideline reporter, “sweet baby” and “asshole” during an off-air spat.

This is why the Oakland Raiders are one messed up team. First they fire their head coach, Tom Cable, then they void the contract of the best defensive back Nnamdi Asomugha.

It be one thing if the Raiders were going in the wrong direction. But it sure looked like things were turning around under Cable, when, BAM, the Raiders decided not to exercise a two-year, $5 million option for 2011 and 2012. This after Oakland finally made it to 8-8, their first non-losing record since 2002.

In another stupid move, Nnamdi Asomugha’s contract was voided. He is now allowed to be a free agent. This, after Oakland said the star Pro Bowl cornerback did not meet his incentives. Wow, how can he achieve his incentives when quarterbacks won’t throw to receivers he is covering. There were only 33 pass attempts his way with 13 completions for 205 yards and no touchdowns. Stupid!!!

This is the reason its not cool to be a Raider Fan.

Ted Williams, a homeless man who was a former radio announcer, has been offered a job by the Cleveland Cavaliers and has received a ton of other offers. He was found after a video on the Columbus Dispatch website was seen by millions of viewers. In the clip, Williams stands near a Columbus highway ramp demonstrating his smooth, deep speaking voice. He holds a sign that asks motorists for help and says, "I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times." The Cavaliers have offered him a two-year announcing work contract, that would pay for his living expenses.

Its got to be tough when a TV viewer calls in a rules violation against a professional Golfer. It happened during the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, and the golfer is Camilo Villegas. Villegas twice was chipping up the slope to the 15th green when the ball rolled back toward him. With the ball rolling back the second time, Camilo swatted away some pieces of grass in front of the divot as the ball was still moving. Rule 23-1 says “When a ball is in motion, a loose impediment that might influence the movement of the ball must not be removed." The penalty is two shots. To top it all off it was Camilo Villegas’ 29th birthday. What a birthday!!

Congratulations go out to the Auburn Tigers for finishing the season #1. For those keeping count, that’s five straight years for the SEC.

Last week I posted a drill team clip. Today I would like to use a Navy term of the week.

Have you ever used the words Hunky Dory?? Well it’s a slang term meaning everything is okay and was coined from a street named Honkidori in Yokohama. It is said that a sailor could find anything he wanted on the street. So the name became synonymous for anything that is enjoyable or satisfactory.

The BEEZE'S Friday Night FINGER POP

Tags: Finger Pop Friday NFL NCAA Jim Harbaugh Andrew Luck Notre Dame Football Ted Williams The Beeze

 

I haven't been around as much as I like...Getting use to the new life has been tough...The baby has cut into my sleep, and my me time...Me time is filled normally with blogging, searching shit out...Porn...And whatever else I can find online...

I plan on this being a weekly thing, just like Monday Moaning, and the Hump Day Hits...The Hits which I didn't post this week...The Friday Finger Pop will include a quick rundown of some things that happened this week, and then we'll end with a couple of nice asses that I'd like to finger pop!

So, Jim Harbaugh is signing a 5 year, $25 million deal with the 49ers...Just as Andrew Luck decided to stay at Stanford to get his degree and play another year of college ball...Sorry Michigan, I guess this "Michigan Man" doesn't want that shit job!

Tyrelle Pryor is going to have surgery on an injured foot ligament...He sustained the injury late in the game Tuesday night...Speaking of that game...I was pissed that Arkansas lost, but at least they came back and made it a good game...Damn there were points when Ohio State looked like they were trying to give them the game...

Oh, and Arkansas QB Ryan Mallet is skipping his senior season and going into the NFL draft...Along with Alabama's RB Mark Ingram and WR Julio Jones...I'm sure those key loses won't slow the SEC down from beating up on Big-Ten teams next year...Don't get all crazy Ohio State fan...You only won 1 out of 10!

Oh, and bad news for my Fighting Irish...TE Kyle Rudolph is heading to the NFL as well...

Now onto Ted Williams...No, sadly I'm not talking about the great baseball player...I'm talking about this, junkie, bum, who has the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kraft, and all kinds of people throwing money at him, because he has a great voice...I saw him on the Today show...He listed his kids names...For Christ's sake he has more then Antonio Croamartie! And why would you throw tons of money at a crackhead...It's gonna go to his head, and he's gonna lose it, and then he's gonna smoke it all away! So he's got a great voice...If the dead Ted Williams sounded that good, then I'd be impressed!

Yeah, I know, I'm hating on a bum...I hope he doesn't blow it, but I have little faith in people...

Now, let's look at some asses, I'd like to finger pop!











Later, The Beeze.

 

Greatest Math Baseball Player of All-Times
Category: MLB
Tags: MLB Babe Ruth Barry Bonds Ty Cobb Ted Williams Hank Aaron Lou Gehrig Willie Mays Mickey Mantle

The other day, we were arguing who was the Greatest Baseball Player of All-Times.

I said Ruth, or Barry on steroids.  The other argument was Cobb.  And of course Boston guy always argues Teddy Ballgame.

So, took at look at the great and wonderful baseball-reference.com to see what some of the advanced metric SABR formula arithmatic numbers had to say.

And since they don't come up with same number, and who is to say which number is best, I decided to add them together for an average, MVP style voting (10 points for 1st, 1 point for 10th).

And also used some traditional baseball numbers that are actual numbers, like home runs.

I know that this isn't the most scientific or accurate method, just wondering how the numbers would turn out.


so...
