Hello everyone, it's been a pretty busy week around the house and it's only going to get busier today, so I thought I would get a little bit of a head start on my blog as not to rush around later on today trying to finish it. First, I want to wish each and everyone safe and Merry Christmas, as you spend it with your families...

When I was growing up and to this day, remains one of my favorite Christmas shows as I watch it with Noah and Taylor everytime it comes on television. However, it seems little Noah soon to be the proud owner of an Xbox 360 is being a little bit of a Grinch today, as he still doesn't feel well enough to go to school...

I understand though, the little dude has been going through some issues at school lately so I am working on the counseling thing with someone outside the school. However, it seems like someone else decided to be a little bit of a Grinch to the basketball fans of Boston, by trading Rondo to the Mavs. Hate to say it, but I am glad they waited until after they played the Pistons to pull off this trade. Merry Christmas Rajon, at least you now play on a team that won't be in the lottery at season's end........

The one Christmas wish I have is that Jimmy Clausen spends a lot of time running for his life on Sunday, and the Lions clinch a playoff berth.,,,,

My other wish is a Christmas miracle in Tampa, and the Lions clinch the number 2 seed, making the game in Green Bay meaningless......

 

Well it's off to Xmas shop, this ought to be real fun.........NOT! 

st

Well now that the fun is over, sort of we are on to the next journey of our day, attendance court for my daughter Taylor. Shouldn't be too bad, but you just never know and if my son doesn't behave and stop following the so-called bad seed then he will be joining her soon....

Bowl mania is starting today, with three games none for which I can remember so they must not be too important too me for whatever reason......

My short Christmas wish list for my friends on the Gab.....

All of you remain in good health

May your families continue to grow

May you continue to prosper

The Red Wings, and Lions continue to have success

May the Tigers finally make their mind up about signing Max Scherzer

A World Series win for the Tigers, a Stanley Cup for the Wings

A few more wins for the Pistons, even though they are a lottery team at best

Q's favorite driver wins a Nascar championship

Old Harry, DVT, IHM, Lanz, AVD, Moz, Tag, Scott, B.O.B. and Bandit may you have a great Christmas with your families.

And to Sully and the Beezer, may you have a great Christmas with your families, and thank you for giving us a place to Gab...

Well Gabbers I hate to say it or at least admit to it, but I haven't been using the old noggin all too well lately. This should remind you of a few things that took place on the field, especially in Cleveland, I am not saying it was a bad move to insert Johnny Manziel into the game against the Bengals, but.....to me it's an act of desperation by the Browns coaching staff, because they know that their season was basically over, and what the hell it couldn't hurt right?

If you think about the move by the Browns it's not really a bad move, but if you take the other side and you live in Cleveland. your probably thinking why now? If the Browns had any notion they were going to pull the plug on Brian Hoyer at any point during the season, then why didn't they start Manziel from the beginning just like the Vikings have with Bridgewater (who doesn't look out of place) and Blake Bortles who will be all right once they find the right pieces for him in Jacksonville. 

I will tell you why, because Brian Hoyer was winning football games and the AFC caught up with the Browns, and they became the .500 team they were supposed to be all along. It's easy to say it's Hoyer's fault the Browns have a 3 game losing streak, because they haven't been able to score over the past couple of games. Hell they said the same thing about Matthew Stafford when the Lions couldn't score, not taking into consideration that they were playing Arizona and New England. 

The sad part of all of this is the media and sports talk radio in Cleveland have probably been taking Brian Hoyer apart, but being a team sport they probably should be taking apart the coaching staff at the same time. After all, someone is calling those plays that are working, so they should be held accountable also?

So in turn, another move by the Browns that blew up in their face, and finished their season as they will not make the playoffs once again. If the coaching staff thought their season was over, and that was the reason why they started Johnny Manziel, they should be embarrassed, not only did the Bengals defense feast on Johnny, but they embarrassed the Browns 30-0 in Cleveland

Starting Johnny Manziel today probably wasn't planned or thought out too well by the Brown's coaching staff, or they would have stuck with Brian Hoyer as their quarterback. Not knocking Johnny Football, but his start spelled the end for the Browns season...

Way To Go Brownies, so much for a Lions-Browns Super Bowl matchup this year........

Hello Gabbers and welcome to another edition of Storminnorman's Sports Blog, the Heisman Trophy edition. This is one of my favorite Saturday's, because it's Army-Navy game day. It doesn't matter who wins the game, it's always fun to watch even when both teams aren't good, because the game always means something to the players.......

I am only to imagine, that this song was written to speak out against the war in Viet Nam. What I don't understand is why those who served in this war, are so disrepected by the United States government who sent them. Isn't it a shame that our own government can't take care of them, like they take care of those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, by ensuring they have the same types of medical coverage and priviledges? It isn't their fault they were involved in that so-called "police-action," which has the same type of similarities of those who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. I will leave you to ponder this for a moment.......

No offense, but I hope the Bengals defense christens him by making his ass a part of the turf. I hope he spends a lot of time on his back, this will knock some of the cockiness out of him, it's too bad he's not starting against a good defense like the Seahawks, who would eat his ass alive.

Not to say that the NCAA playoffs are rigged, but I wonder how many different ways they will try to ensure Florida St. a chance to repeat as champions?

By the time I get home from work tomorrow, Marcus Mariota should have a Heisman Trophy to add to his list of accomplishments during his college career. The question I have, is why did it take so long for him to win it? Mariota has been a winner at Oregon since day 1, and has led his team to major bowl games every year? Did anyone hear if he has decided to leave after this year and go pro? It would be a shame, because the playoffs are geared for Oregon to make it next year also....

Well the losing streak in Detroit ended at 13-games against the Suns tonight 105-103, I was beginning to wonder like the coaches and players were, if they were ever going to win another game this season. I read an article in the Detroit News, where Larry Brown had called Stan Van Gundy earlier this week, and told him to "stay the course," while they lose Greg Monroe to free agency at the end of the season, Gores needs to open his wallet and show Monroe the money, afterall, he has been here for the entire rebuilding process when they dumped their championship team to rebuild. It's only fair...........

Rick Porcello is a Red Sox now, good luck because if I remember right he didn't pitch very well in Fenway Park. I'm not too sure why they wanted Cespedes in Detroit, and for that matter Simon. Makes you wonder if Dombrowski spiked his egg nog before making these deals......

The Lions play the Vikings on Sunday, hope I get home in time to see them take them out. I also hope the losing streak in Buffalo continues for the Packers 0-6 would mean the Lions are back in first place heading into Chicago. I don't mind personally if they don't win the division, it would be nice to have the two seed and home field, but making the playoffs as a wild card might not be a bad option either.

Hat's off to Kevin Harvick on winning driver of the year, not that the voting is a science. It should be given to the Sprint Cup Champion anyway......

That's all I got, have a great week!

Hello Gabbers and welcome to another edition of Storminnorman's Sports Blog, where while at work today, I was reminded how ignorant our younger generation has really become.......

While at work around 4pm today, this younger black gentleman came into the store and approached customer service where apparently he didn't get the answer he was looking for from our Customer Service Manager, so and I quote " he told her that he would climb over the counter and rob her ass," which in turn got my attention along with a few others. For which my CSM not so politely told him to get his ass out of her store, which pissed him off a little more.....

By then we had our store manager up front, and dialed 911. The idiot then tried to reenter the store from each enterance which allowed us the time to get the description of his car, liscense plate and who was driving ( he just screwed over his girl pretty bad), because I nailed her as the driver. I guess what pissed me off was when ran him out of the store the last time, he tried to play the race card in front of a group of older black and white people, by saying a because a majority of those who threw him out where white, he was be picked on more or less because he was black. 

First things first, if you want to go to jail for a bit, tell the CSM you are going to rob her and that will do the trick. Can't play the race card with that one, no discrimination involved at all, wouldn't have mattered if you were purple, you are going to jail for attempted robbery......

To that I say DUMBASS!

Now that I got that off my chest, let's talk a little Big 10, ACC, and SEC Championship games for a moment. Ohio St-Wisconsin and Florida St.-Georgia Tech should look rather similar, because nobody wants Wisconsin or Georgia Tech to win, and they will do everything they can to ensure that Ohio St and Florida St win their games. 

Everyone let's be real here, FSU should have 3 losses but for some reason unknown to mankind are still undefeated. 

Because it's Urban Meyer, it won't matter if the Beezer's son is QB, they will try to help Ohio St win.....

I guess Oregon has wrapped up their playoff spot, depending o

n how the Alabama-Missouri game goes today, could they move up to the 1 seed? Marriota with 5 touchdowns as I watch in the 3rd quarter, looking like your Heisman Trophy winner.....

So what do you think, and who do you like tomorrow? I am going with Wisconsin, FSU (not by choice, just realistic) and Alabama in a close one over Missouri.......

Here's something to lighten up the mood, not exactly sure which video this is.......

Not really sure, but isn't it nice to see TCU finally get respect from the committee, when for years the BCS blew them off. I am so tired of listening to announcers who kiss the asses teams like Baylor who do not belong, and Ohio St. who should have destroyed Michigan DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE IN THE PLAYOFFS!

What's up with aquiring Anthony Gose from Toronto, let Torrii go to Minny for more speed? Now all the Tigers need is the "Melkman" and they will have their entire outfield, what a joke. You need relief pitching, so you sign Soria and the throw Porcello out there once again as trade bait. Guess I am not supposed to understand why, but after all they are the Tigers, so close to winning it all 2 years ago, but so far away right now and desperate to win because the window is closing fast as the new arena complex is being built......

The Lions are hosting the Buccaneers, let's see if they allow them to stay in the game, or kick their asses like they did Chicago on Thanksgiving Day....

The Pistons have lost a million games in a row, lost count but I know it's been almost 3 weeks since they last won. Good thing Stan is the President, he won't fire himself.......

The Red Wings have won 5 of 6, and are playing the Rangers today at the Joe. Then are off to Carolina to play the Hurricanes on Sunday. Who would have thought with all those kids, they would be in the position they are in, battling for the lead in their division with Montreal and Tampa Bay?
 

The scary part about the Wings, is that they can only get better with the more experience the Sheahan's, Tatar's and Jurco get. Pavel is insanely good for someone who has missed about a third of the games this year. They are finally getting contributions from Weiss and Helm, now they have to wake the Mule.........

Well "it ain't over, til it's over," but in this case Yogi it is.....

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hello Gabbers and welcome to another weekly edition of Stormminorman's Sports Blog, the Michigan-Ohio St. edition. Well that's enough about that, let's move on to a few things that are bit more important than this game, Ray Rice........

Friday, Ray Rice was reinstated into the NFL by independant arbitrator Barbara Jones, who once again felt the league basically handled this situation all wrong, because Rice was never brought to trial for knocking his now wife out cold in an elevator, and that he told the truth to Roger Goodell and his cronies.....

Before any of you decide to go rip my head off over this issue, I am by far not taking Ray Rice's side on the matter, because he is a total idiot! The problem is that his wife like so many other women did not stand up to him, and press charges for whatever reason. Who's to say this was not the first time he co-cocked her before they were married?

The problem is that like so many others, she probably feared for her life and didn't want to report it when she probably should have. It reminded me of an investigation taking place right now in Buena Vista Township, about 20 minutes from my home, where a women shot and killed her boyfriend who was an alleged abuser. When police showed up at the house, she walked out saying she couldn't take it anymore, I shot him dead. The sad part is that her daughter called 911 and reported gunshots being fired, and the women may walk totally free on a self-defense claim. I say good for her, at least he isn't hurting her anymore......

The problem with our society is that we are not allowed to discipline our children, like our parents diciplined us. Adrian Peterson who was brought to trial for spanking his son with a switch, probably was doing to his son, what his parents did to him when he was younger. It's said that we learn how to discipline from our parents, so was he right in doing so? Probably not, but our society today has made our children the undisciplined children they are today, by telling them to turn us in if we spank them, and God forgive if you spank them with a belt like your parents did to you when you were younger.......

I am not saying what he did was right, but when you are angry you just do the first thing that comes to your head, sometimes without thinking. I'm sure Peterson is regretting his actions, but instead of helping him, Goodell and the NFL bails on him by suspending him under the Code of Conduct Policy that never came into play until this year with Rice and Peterson. That's another sad part of our society today, we are quick to judge others, but not willing to help them through their personal issues.......

As we have learned over the past year, Roger Goodell is only in for what is good for Roger Goodell. He would make a great politician, he lies like one. Making promises that he has no intentions of keeping, and wondering why none of his current players trust him. Maybe like in basketball and baseball, it's time for him to go also........

I would like to acknowledge "The Beezer" on a wonderful piece in the 2.0 Friday, if you didn't read it, you need too, it's one of his best pieces I have read.....

We all know about the robber who was shot dead in Ferguson, and the riots that have insued since it occurred. Anyway as was mentioned by the Beezer, he in fact was robbing the store when police arrived, it was all on tape. First things first, it shouldn't have mattered if the man was white or black, he was doing wrong by robbing and charging the police. The first thing I learned about deadly force while on a submarine, is that if a person doesn't acknowledge your command to halt, then is ass is considered dead. I know this sounds harsh, but it's all the same.

The other problem is that every time a black person is shot, Rev. Al and the Rainbow Coalition have to get involved. Get a clue you dumbasses, it's not a race issue like you think it is. IT NEVER WAS A RACE ISSUE, IF THE SAME GUY WAS WHITE, YOU WOULDN'T CARE!!!. So take your asses back to Chicago, Washington, D.C., and whereever else, because you are all wrong and need to get a clue......

Before I go, I want it to be known that I am not a racist by any means, I am just sick of the race card being played every time it involves an African-American. It's 2014, not 1964, it wouldn't have mattered what the color of the person involved, the results would have been the same.....

​​Also, good luck to the Patriots this Sunday, kick some Aaron Roger's ass and help the Lions move back into first in the NFC North!

Don't forget to visit the 2.0, not sure who is going to be there today.......
