Deep Thoughts

Hello again and welcome to another Wednesday of deep thoughts. It has been has been quite a week in the central part of Texas. The Labor Day weekend started okay, but suddenly our fires began to flare up in random places. I have lived in the area most of my life and I have never seen anything so bizarre. I had a friend over on Friday taking a look at my AC system. He thought he had the problem figured out, but he did not come back to finish the job. I found out today that his brother in law was killed in one of the fires. I am sure you have probably seen a brush fire on the side of the road, but this has been crazy. The tropical storm whipped a very strong wind. Weeks of 100 plus temperatures created a bad scenario for us.

 

 

 

 

It is unreal to realize that this can happen without notice. My wife's parents were about 5 miles from a fire. Thankfully the wind let up and the fire is under control now. Send us some rain please...

 

 

 



 

 

 

As much as I hate to admit it, I am really looking forward to the NFL season. I want to be mad about the lockout, but to hell with it...I am ready for some football.

 

 

 

 

Finally, the NFL begins Thursday. Is it me or does this season seem to be loaded with many potential success stories? I know that my Lion friends are hoping their team takes a giant step this year. There is even hope in Cleveland to be competitive.  Will the Rams actually have a chance to win their division? The Eagles made big offseason moves, but if the Cowboys can stay healthy there is plenty of talent for a December run. Of course, given the dismal start last year, perhaps I should not get ahead of myself there. I look at San Diego and see a damn good team, but for whatever reason they always seem to stumble out of the gate. Will this be the year that they have a good start? Will Peyton Manning miss a game or more? Would a normal offseason have provided Manning a better opportunity to be ready for opening day? Did the lockout prevent him adequate medical options? For Colt fans, I hope that Peyton is not too late to the party.

Who do you like this year? It is difficult to ignore the juggernaut that Philadelphia has assembled. As a Cowboy fan, I hope that I am wrong, but I see Philly as the NFC representative and the Jets as the AFC team left standing. There will be many Patriot fans that will vehemently disagree, but that is what it looks like to me. Of course, the Ravens and Steelers will have something to say about this as well. The team that puzzles me is KC. I cannot decided if this is a team on the rise or a team that overachieved last year.The Texans are another team with offensive firepower and a promising defense.

Let's get it on! 

 

 

 



 

 


From what I have heard, Texas played Rice last Saturday. Because the Longhorn leadership is so damn greedy, the new Longhorn Network was basically unavailable for anyone to watch. What good is a network if you demand too much for the product and the  cable and dish folks refuse to broadcast it? I really enjoy  following Texas, but this is just a train wreck. So far, the Longhorn greed has created a dangerous chasm among the Big 12 schools. Two member schools are gone and the Aggies are as good as gone. A blog this week described the Longhorn Network as a beta test; which is exactly right. Everyone is watching to see how successful Texas will be with their network. So far, I would give them a big fat F. One thing that may keep the Big 12 together is that Texas and Oklahoma have a very good chance of obtaining two BCS berths by staying together. Going to the Pac 16 or whatever it would be called would make the road to the BCS much more difficult. I guess the end result will depend on what pays the best.

 

 



 

 

My son's Westwood team faced the Bowie Bulldogs last week. Bowie is another team that Westwood lost to last year. This year, I thought that the Warriors had the talent to soundly beat Bowie. I was not wrong...Westwood 31 Bowie 10. Here are a few clips...

 

 

Ben Johnson with Westwood's first score.

 

 

Ben finishes a nice run by trucking a defender.

 

 

 

This is a great run. It was difficult to film with everyone standing, but check out the wicked hesitation move that

Ben puts on the corner back.

 

 

Blake snags an interception. Those baseball skills come into play.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I read a hilarious story today about Angels pitcher Jerome Williams. Williams played for the Giants for two years and was known as Jeremy. He was a rookie and afraid to tell anyone that his real name is Jerome. The exchange with his pitching coach is too funny...

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/Jerome-Williams-The-Giants-called-me-Jeremy-f?urn=mlb-wp18625

 

 

 

 

That is all I have for this week. Here is a bit of Jack Handey to ponder the rest of the week:

 

There should be a detective show called "Johnny Monkey," because every week you could have a bad guy say "I ain't gonna get caught by no MONKEY," but then he would, and I don't think I'd ever get tired of that.  

 

Love is not something that you can put chains on and throw into a lake. That's called Houdini. Love is liking someone a lot.  

 

Damn that Johnny Monkey is one bad ass monkey...




Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a few deep thoughts of your own...

 

 


 

Tuesday's Tantrum - 9/6/11
Category: FEATURED

Welcome back to the artist formerly known as Fan82’s tantrum.  I’m Uncle B.O.B., who will guide you through a journey through the angry mind of my nephew who is resting somewhat comfortably in a Mike Leach approved dark room in parts unknown somewhere that has no internet and doesn’t allow for any emotion whatsoever. 

However, he asks that in his absence and with the arrival of Johnny Monkey that the following courtesy is applied

Speaking of midgets, let's talk about a mental midget:

Rant of the Week – Chris Johnson.  Nice job on your tweets, you arrogant prick. 

"Can these fake Titan fans STFU on my timeline I don't have a regular job so don't compare me to you and I can care less if uthink I'm greedy".

"If you was a real fan my tweet would not bother you it only make the fake fans upset".

"My titan fans taking it all wrong I'm talking to the ones writing me racist Comments. I'm not call the Titan fans fake at all. #LUV"

What a joke!  Hey Chris, you’re in Tennessee – stop with the blasts.  Dude, the economy sucks and people are suffering.  We don’t like arrogant ass-clowns who are demanding more money in one year than many will see in a lifetime.  Whether you like that take or not, it’s there - Fans down there don’t like that crap! 

MLB.   Hey SF Giants, thanks for not putting the bat to the ball and defending your World Series Championship.  Jesus, Beeze could bring his T-Ball team out here and hit better than your sorry asses.  Maybe that’s because you weren’t ready for the season due to excessive celebration rather than staying focused on defending your championship.  I’ve seen lacks of offense before, but to waste a year of a great pitching staff on abysmal hitting?

NFL.  What has to be the worst feeling in the world?  Those NFL players that don’t make it out of August.

Everybody needs to stop for a minute and give props to the biggest BITTER OLE BASTARD out there, Buddy Ryan.  This dude, when he's not busy kicking brother coaches asses, is battling a third round with Cancer.  Cancer should be scared of this guy, but it's sure persistent isn't it?  Buddy is flying from Kentucky to the Jets/Cow-sissy game Sunday just before surgery and treatment in Kentucky.

College Football.  I am so glad that CFB is back ON THE FIELD.  I wanted to share a story I read about the worst CFB team out there, Valparaiso.  It brought me back to what College Football should be about.  I encourage you to read the article.

http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootball/story/Valparaiso-Crusaders-football-presses-on-in-face-of-huge-adversity-090111

I don’t think I care about who I offend on this next take.  To those who continue to disrespect the Boise State Broncos – JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP!   Honestly, what more is it gonna take for them to be included in the party?  Beating Oklahoma, Oregon (twice), and Georgia among others, it's time to give them respect.  Perhaps inviting them to participate in a newly reformatted Division 1 Super Conference Football?

Hey Auburn, I don't know how you pulled that one out, but what I can tell you is that if you face SEC competition playing with that lack of urgency, you're gonna get put down like a broken down horse.

Hey Notre Dame and Domer fans all over, the best thing that could have happened to your program was a loss.  You ask how?  Well, if you have to lose, why not make it in week one when you can make it up down the line?  Not only that, the hype and pressure are now gone - they can focus on playing football now.  Yeah, they lost to a team from the Big East, but the mistakes that cost them points and the game were all mental, and that can be easily fixed. 

One last thing I mentioned to somebody earlier this week, Sacramento State beat Oregon State 29-28.  Living in Sacramento and watching the HS and JC recruiting scene here, I can't understand how the Hornets have ignored a treasure trove of football talent here.  Time to bring big-time NCAA college football into Sacramento.  Time to show some of that passion.

 

Mustang Football.   My son graduated High School three years ago and I no longer have any tie to the school, but I just can’t cut myself loose from watching the games.  Mrs. Fan is spending the night at her sisters, Jerry is at Beaver practice, and I need a break between classes, so I decided to go to the Mustang game STAG.  Good food, good people, GREAT GAME!!!

The Mustangs pulled out the win 40-39 in OT.  Sluggish first half, followed by ping-pong type action in the second.  Lots of passing in the second half.  Bottom line, it went to California Overtime (four tries from the 10).  The Hawks scored seven on their try.  The Mustangs went in and got their six then decided to go for two and the win right there.  They appeared stopped on the two point conversion, but while the Hawks were celebrating a flag came in for Facemask.  One more play and the Mustangs ran it in.  Game over 40-39 win.

Canadian Football League – Week 10.   I wanted to say thank you to the NFL Network and ESPN3.com, who have chosen to continue to show CFL games and mostly live at that!  BC appears to be on a roll, but the hottest team in the league continues to be Winnipeg, who has a defense that could rival a few of the better ones in the NFL.  Of course, the minute I write this, 1-7 Sasky goes and smokes 'em like a gouda!

Music – Alabama.  A day late, but I thought that honoring Labor Day was still appropriate. 

 

Hey Washington, let’s get some jobs back here.  Find a way to force the freaking businesses to bring the jobs back here!

Douche Bag of the Week – Indy Colts and Jim Tressel.  Sucks for the Colts that Peyton's out for Game One. I guess karma really is a bitch isn't it?  Hire Tressel who can only start after game seven and Manning's still out? Hmmm...

PEACE AND RANTING FOREVER!!!

Wow! Two weeks in a row Mother Nature has been causing trouble, and gives me an excuse to post a pic of some tastiness in the rain! Not that I need much of an excuse!

So the weather caused some issues at the Notre Dame game, but the weather gets no credit for the disgrace that took place on the field...I'm not taking anything away from USF...They are a good team, with a good coach, but the Irish handed them the game right from jump...

Notre Dame looked great in their opening drive, all the way up to the point where Jonas Gray fumbled at the goal-line...If you read my IRISH_PREVIEW you saw that I pointed out, that Gray needed to knock off his fumbling habits! Too bad he didn't read it...USF scooped it up and ran it all the way back for 6...This didn't seem to rattle the Irish, except for QB Dayne Crist, who started making bad reads, and throwing bad passes...The Irish got to the red zone 4 times and left with 0 points on the board in the first half...

Theo Riddick fumbled a punt inside the Irish 20 yard line, and that rattled him for the rest of the day...He couldn't handle any punts...bobbled them all, never got his feet under himself, and looked scared shitless...Then he started dropping passes...

Oh, and don't forget the stupid fucking penalties...Harrison Smith, two fucking face-masking penalties in a row...He should have been benched...Gray and Riddick too!

Coach Brian Kelly looked like he was going to start ripping players faces off...After halftime/ a long weather delay, Kelly benched Crist, and put in Tommy Rees...The Irish came out fired up, missed a field goal...Rees threw a pick...And yet, they still were pushing to comeback...Another weather delay with 4 minutes left in the game...Then Rees threw another pick...Irish get it back, score, down by 3, go for the onside kick, don't get it, game over...

I was so upset watching this Football game, my oldest daughter, who hasn't seen this side when we go to the local high school games, asked, "Why do boys like Football so much when it makes them mad?" Good fucking question honey! I took to twitter with my anger so I wouldn't upset the kids...Some ND supporter tweeted, "We understand why Irish fans are upset. You are welcome to be upset. We will continue to support Notre Dame our mother. Don't turn on these young men."

Which of course got under my skin, so I responded with this, "Oh, thank you for allowing me to be upset! How kind of you! Wow, you've got some balls!" They came back with, "@TheBeeze34 Think you are taking what was said the wrong way. Just asking #Irish fans to not turn on our guys."

So I hit them with two more..."@TNNDN #Irish fans have the right to want their team to not fumble games away. QB's not to throw picks and make bad reads" and "@TNNDN Say what you want, but it's their job. They are getting a $50,000 yr education for playing football. Fans have the right 2 b pissed!"

I really hate when people are so arrogant, that they feel they speak for all fans everywhere, and that they need to tell us how to feel...Blow me! I'll cheer how I want, and I'll be pissed if I want...I have been a loyal, and die hard Notre Dame fan forever...And to me being a fan doesn't mean being blind...That team played like a steaming pile of dog shit, and a real fan admits to it, and calls them on it!

Fuck it, I need to move on...Speaking of Blind fans...Saw some dope Ohio State fan flying this flag...


That's right Buckeye Nation...Never forget that Jim Tressel cheated his way to that record, and now you have one of his understudies coaching the team now...So most likely the same shit is going on...Oh, and could you assholes stop being so fucking excited that Ohio State beat the hell out of Akron...Of course they did...OSU's 3rd stringers are better then Akron's 1st team...That's why they play at Akron! Fuck take the best High School team from Cleveland, and the best from Cincinnati, and they could take it to Akron...Fuck you people are retarded!

And since I'm here, Why the fuck hasn't Roger Goodell Suspended Jim Tressel yet...If you didn't know, Tressel got a job as a BS assistant with the Colts...Now Goodell upheld the NCAA's ruling on Terrell Pryor, and suspended him for his first 5 games in the league...So why hasn't he come out and done the same to Tressel...Tressel was given 2 games by the NCAA initially, and then said he'd take 5...Once again, the commissioner's office is being inconsistent in it's rulings...

And any of you Suckeye fans have a problem with me writing truth, all I have to say is this...



Now, who missed the TCU vs. Baylor game Friday night...Listen, if you see a reply airing on one of the ESPN's, watch it, and remember what I wrote about ROBERT_GRIFFIN back in July!

Now I've spent all this time bitching about Football...Real quick, lets get into something else...Mrs. Beeze and I have both gotten emails from people in the last week...They've been those chain-letter types of emails...We've gotten them from about 5 people, all the same, telling us how we all need to be flying our American Flags on the 10th anniversary of 9-11...Let me ask you this...Why the fuck aren't you flying your American Flag every day!?!

Now, before we go enjoy our Labor Day festivities...I thought we should celebrate with a little Kate Upton!




Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.

 

Breaking Point - NCAA Football

Thoughts From Am Island Girl

 

As the summer winds down and baseball becomes increasingly irrelevant to most teams and fans, the start of the college football season seems a welcome break.   But no,  just like pro  wrestling,  the outcomes seem to be largely predetermined.    The only difference is that there is no text messages from management and the Divas wear a lot more on the sidelines than Kelly Kelly does with the WWE.   But at least Kelly's persona seems to be a more like an old MTV video than the total sellout by college hostesses at the bigger colleges and universities.  These guys go to the major programs because of the perks.    Coaches tell them what they want to hear and give them all the candy they can get.

 

 

I would like to think that most girls do not sell their bodies for the sake of a National Championship or even a way to pay the costs of college.  That our hard work is being rewarded for studying rather than grunting below the vise of a coddled and spoiled,  non-matriculating cretin.   We are not foods for the gods,  but relevant in terms of our dedication to our studies and then to the school spirit.   But that spirit is not taking one for the team.   

 

"Who is that casting devious stares in my direction?".  "Yeah momma this surely is just a dream,  yeah".    But it is not.   Things are spiraling out of control when you have 'The U' and 'The Ohio State',  engaging in nihilistic rituals, all for the sake of someone's ego.   These schools names and distinctions seem to have a more nefarious point of origin.   Bad money to support the habit of winning is similar to baseball's dalliances with performance enhancing drugs.  The homerun is replaced by self-aggrandizing sack dances and other forms of taunting.  

 While the NCAA has addressed taunting down the field,  it has not begun to realistically address the underlying causes for this self promotion.  In basketball you get the Kentucky coach outright saying that the players are there to play basketball  (which may be true enough) and basically implies that they will not graduate and will make it to the NBA, but Arkansas gets nailed for not graduating enough players.    

As I see it,  all those one and done players must be dragging down their graduation rates at Kentucky.   This seems really just a pretense at overseeing the academic part of a student athlete's studies.   A lot of these players at operating at a grade school level.    

I don't even pretend to think that they are top of the line scholars but I do expect the schools and this includes prep schools to actually prep the players in learning how to learn.   So if I sound a little annoyed,  I believe I have good cause.    And more when my college sisters are selling their souls for a kind of grant that gets a prostitute arrested.   No wonder there is such a backlash against this kind of practice.    And it is no wonder that a lot of women feel bitchy,  if you would.

 

Seeing that Pat Summitt has suffered her latest setback,  I am sure that this isn't what she would want women to do.   To sell our bodies like that.    I am not embarrassed to be a woman or afraid to show my body at the beach but I do take exception that women can be used like this.
