Random Thoughts for a Friday

I don't care what anyone else says, fights are fun in sports. If I had my way, all the leagues would be hockey style, and just let them fight till the helmet comes off. People were so up in arms about this Angels-Rangers thing, and it was fun. That's like only the second one I can remember this year (Cubs-White Sox being the other) and it's disappointing. I can remember years gone by that left me satisfied with 5 or 6 big fights. It's just not the same anymore.

I had my first FFL draft last night. For some reason, we were running the league through EA Sports this year. Apparently one of my friends got a coupon from NFL Head Coach (which is a rip-off because I bought it too, and didn't get anything). Now, normally, this league service is $50. Which is absurd. The interface they use is just atrocious. If you ever have a chance to play in an EA league, don't take it...it's not worth it. I'll stick to ESPN and Yahoo, thank you very much.

Is there anything stranger than Maurice Clarett? This dude was the number one college player and now look where he is. His story gets stranger by the minute. Not only was he tasered and maced, but he has connections to the Israeli mob?!? It's really just amazing to see how far this man has fallen. He was the savior of an entire fan base, and now he's sitting in a jail cell. How sad.

"Maurice Clarett was bankrolled by an alleged member of an Israeli crime organization after leaving Ohio State, ESPN has learned, and Clarett's attorney said Thursday that his client may have been in possession of firearms last week to protect himself against mob activity."

is this shit for real, or is this a John Grisham novel?

GM-Carson said...

I'm all for a base-brawl. These people are pussies that are bitching about violence in the game. Sometimes a good pitch in the middle of the back is deserved!

I've been petitioning for Phillies relief pitcher Rick "Embrace the Beard" White to start a fight by means of a beaning, but have yet to get through!

I would love to be at a game and witness firsthand a good ol' fashioned fight...great stuff!

Maurice Clarett is a dumbass! Anybody in the public eye as much as him should not try to get away with so much stupid shit...he was pressing his luck for too long.

The young kid Nolar Ryan beatdown was none other than Robin Ventura.

You gotta let the teams brawl. That's real life. The bull pens running all the way to the infield to join in makes great footage. However I think they should go at it in the outfield and be joined by the outfielders. Get two brawls going and give the fans out there a good view of the action.

The Rev said...

I was gonna throw up a quick information post, but I had saw Jfreak had posted. So I deleted my post so he could have his day in the sun.

I just wanted to throw out there that this blog yesterday got 170 visits in it's third day of existence. To put it in perspective, my main blog only gets about 75 visits a day, and it took me a year to get that. To get over double that in our third day... simply amazing. I just wanted to thank all of you.

Next week, when we get into the 5 man rotation, I'm debating using my posting as the "guest column" day. I have one person interested in guesting. If anyone else is interested in that, e-mail me. I'l hook some of you up with the occasional front page column. I'm happy to share.

Just wanted that to be known. Carry on.

GM-Carson said...

You know what would make the brawls even better? Answer- if they still had those bullpen carts that brought the relief pitchers into the game, that way they could have a demolition derby during a brawl...good stuff!

The Rev said...

And as far as Maurice Clarett goes, I don't think Hollywood could have made up his story. Totally in-freakin-sane.

So now the question... if Maurice Clarett had a movie about his life, who plays him?

I've been in the stands for three near brawls in baseball.

Corey and Carson will love this. I remember one Phillies brawl in 1989 when for some reason, Dickie Thon ran out of the dugout solo to attack the opposing team's pitcher. This happened at the old Vet. I never knew why that happened. But all of a sudden, here comes Dickie out of the dugout with a head of steam looking to scrap.

I always thought the entire team pulled the "everybody stop at the steps except Dickie". They all fake running out, he keeps going.
Then they all realized he was serious and eventually backed him up.

The other two stories will be in later comments.

I mean, I'm the liberal and all, but I will say this....

That's actually 400 more French soldiers than I want over there.

The Rev said...

Second near brawl... 1993, Phillies at the Vet again, and Pete Incaviglia gets plunked in the arm by a fastball. I don't remember who the opposing pitcher was, but I want to say it was the Astros. He gets upset and starts jawing as he's walking down the line but doesn't run out. Nevertheless, both benches empty out just in case, and the crowd rises in anticipation.

I'm sitting behind the Phils dugout on the first base side, so I can see Incaviglia clearly. Larry Bowa was the first base coach at the time. I see Inky whisper something in Bowa's ear at the edge of the mob. Suddenly, Bowa starts holding Inky back, and Inky starts going BANANAS. He's pointing, yelling, screaming like crazy at the pitcher with all the players in between them.

I swear to this day, I think Inky whispered to Bowa "act like you're holding me back, will ya?" He waited until everyone was out there until he went apeshit. It was funny to see, but I always thought Inky had no intention of fighting. Pretty wussy for a big guy like him.

The Rev said...

Third near fight... Fenway Park in 2000. I'm behind home plate, and Pedro is pitching. It's the 8th inning, and he's beating the Orioles handily. Runner gets on third with two outs, and good ol' Albert "Joey" Belle is at the plate.

The 0-1 pitch gets past the catcher to the backstop, and the runner takes off for home. As Pedro covers the plate, the runner goes in standing, and manages to throw a little shoulder bump into Pedro as he passes. Pedro gets upset, and the benches empty. But no punches were thrown. The crowd is going crazy, and soon they clear off the field. But I'm close behind home plate, and I could see the look in Pedro's eyes. I got this feeling that there's no way Belle is touching a pitch. I didn't think Pedro was going to plunk him, I just thought that Belle should go to the bench right then because he had no shot.

Second pitch paints the outside corner for strike 2, Belle doesn't blink.

Next pitch, fastball blows past a swinging Belle for strike 3. Third out, inning over, and the crowd is insane.

That's when Pedro was unstoppable!

First of all, ever since I can remember the French have been fucking us.

Second, go back and try and find the pics from inside Clarett's car. On the passenger seat is the AK-47, bottle of Grey Goose, the CD of songs from the Ohio inmates singing kids songs and....a lint lifter. I shit you not, I'll try and find the pic. So what's he thinking "I got my goose and my gun....now where is that pesky lint lifter"...WTF?

As for basebrawls, I don't get why the batter doesn't take the bat with him. If someone wants to throw a ball at my head at 90 MPH well fuck you, I'm coming at you with a bat bitch.

Vengeance said...

Listen up bitches, I'm here to stay. As in, not going away, ever. This is my house now. I lay my head here, Monday through Friday. And if you don't know you betta ax somebody.

VIVA!

Isiah Thomas said...

Why is Seau coming out of his 3 day retirement? Why do the Patriots want him? God I hate the Patriots. First off they're my brothers team. Second they got lucky winning 3 Superbowls. Yeah I said it, lucky.

3 games by 3 points each? Kickers kicking it out of bounds, Mike Martz coaching, Donovan McNabb dry heaving on the final drive? Fuck that.

What's next Bellichik is gonna take a stab at Mo Clarett? Well maybe I shouldn't say stab and Clarett in the same sentence.

GM-Carson said...

If a batter ever did hit a pitcher with about he would get brought up on criminal charges, much like that Boston Bruin hockey player a few seasons ago with the stick and all.

Smokin' Steve- funny you brought up Dickie Thon, as he was the topic of my blog this morning.

GM-Carson said...

Don't be hatin' on the Pats...they're *GREAT! (*=picture Tony the Frosted Flakes Tiger saying it)...ha, I'm just playing, I've had enough of them, just like I've had enough of the BoSox. It was ok at first, but I get tired of the same clubs winning unless it's my team, but my team never wins!

The Rev said...

Best hockey brawl I ever saw in person... Detroit Red Wings vs. the Boston Bruins in the old Boston Garden in the early 90's during my college years. The game ended with a bench clearing brawl that started and stopped three times near one of the runways. I remember Cam Neely in street clothes in the runway getting involved. He was on the njured list at the time. And as the Detroit Red Wings finally leave the ice after it all, a fan leans over the railing and sucker punches Steve Yzerman from the stands.

Later on, I'm watching highlights of the fight in my dorm room on the news, and they show a shot of Brad McCrimmon choking Jeff Lazaro on the ice. Literally, he's over him with both hands around his neck. That's how intense it got. A player almost died at the hands of another player.

The best part of that is, they guy who sucker punched Steve Yzerman was a season ticket holder. After that, they put a steel mesh curtain over that runway so the fans could not reach the players, and they revoked the guys tickets.

Those tickets used to go on sale at the ticket office after that for individual games, and one time I bought them and sat in those seats. Amazing seats in the 4th rowbehind the visitors bench. And that game was against the Buffalo Sabres which the Bruins won on an overtime goal, and I got the thrill of taunting the Buffalo players through the mesh as they walked off the ice.

Thanks to a guy sucker punching Steve Yzerman, I got great seats to a classic hockey game at the Boston Garden. Good times!

Isiah Thomas said...

Alright I guess you can't attack someone with a bat like I suggested - good call.

But at least take a few steps then throw the bat at the pitcher, get your monies worth.

The batter is already at a disadvantage since its 9 vs 1.

The Rev said...

I can hear all the Patriots fans now...

What? Junior Seau?

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

The Rev said...

Reminds me of Billy Martin back in his playing days.

He threw his bat at the pitcher on a swing at a pitch. He came out to the mound like he was just coming out to get his bat, and told the pitcher that he was just out there for the bat. The pitcher feels safe, picks up the bat, hands it to him...

and Billy grabs the bat with one hand, but cold cocks him with a punch from his free hand that breaks the pitcher's eye socket.

That's what I'm talkin about.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I'm a Boston sports fan from birth. That was bred into me. As far as Seau goes though a 3 day retirement? At least Clemens was retired a month or two before heading to the Astros.

Isiah Thomas said...

Anyone read SG's new column today? He's crying about a bad beat. Granted it was pretty bad but suck it up guy. Someone paid your way into the Main Event and you're gonna call out some other scrub in the same situation?

The guy raised, rightly so with AK. He flops top pair, top kicker so of course he's inclined to call your bet since he had you covered.

SG needs to pull his panties up sometimes. I play on Full-Tilt (micro levels) and the level of play is awful, its just the way it is.

And what's up with Poker players saying that all the newbies are dilluting the talent and making it more difficult to win. What you want more exposure so you can get better endorsement deals and make more money - but then you don't want the side effects that come with it?

I like poker and the boom its had over the past few years but people really need to stop crying about the bad beats and bad play. Man up people.

Isn't there a law that Omar Epps would have to play the role of Clarett? It's definitely an ammendment.

El Padrino said...

does anyone work during the day
this is like unprecedented comment speed

clarett, has to be a movie one day
probablt ABC made for Tv with omar epps playing clarett

brawls are good but MLB ruined them with the suspensions
back in the day two or three hits batsmen was a norm

Spaceman Spiff said...

yea, simmons latest makes him look extremely ignorant. First, the other guy played the hand ok, and second, there are innumerable bad beats in the WSOP, he acts like he's the only one, and fourth when did simmons decide he was pro enough to start bitching like Hellmuth. Hey simmons, i read the same article by phil gordon a week ago, but hes actually a professional.

Spaceman Spiff said...

haha, i skipped 3rd, so let me add 3rd: that's poker

Isiah Thomas said...

This is the Revolution baby, get used to the speed.

What's up with Terry Francona always wearing a smock instead of his uni? The guy looks like a bum.

Unstoppable brought up the Israeli crime organization. There are Israeli crime organizations? When/how did this happen? And how does a guy like
Maurice Clarett get hooked up with one?

And was it me or did that Rangers pitcher Feldman try a Sho-Ryu-Ken but he messed up the timing?

Best NHL fight ever was Detroit and Colorado with Mike Vernon and Patrick Roy fighting at center ice. The brawl ended with Darren McCarty slaming Claude Lemeieux(sp?) into the half boards by the bench.

Detroit-Indiana....nuff said.

South Carolina vs. Clemson 2 years ago in football. They brawled before the game.

Wings/Avs... leaving pools of blood all over the ice was awesome!

The Rev said...

I just read Simmons' poker column.

Why is he comparing any of this to Rounders? First of all, they weren't even playing Hold Em in Rounders if I remember correctly. Hold Em is a different game with different nuances than any other poker game, and yes luck plays more of a part in Hold Em. Them's the breaks, SG.

He got his ass handed to him on the river. At least he has his poker story to tell his buddies by the pool while sipping mojitos.

GM-Carson said...

Proud to be a member of the REVOLUTION. Teaching begins for me again next Wednesday, but I'll still find time to visit this place...can't get enough of it!

More about fights- football fights suck. Seriously the sport is already about knocking the shit outta the opponent, and they have all that padding on...not much harm can be done except to yourself. For example, during practice in college I would often fight with our All-American noseguard because I got tired of my ass getting pounded...so I swung and hit his helmet, you think that hurt him or me worse?!

Tyler said...

Rounders was all about Hold Em. He explains Hold Em in the beginning of the movie because that's how he lost his money and had to start driving the truck. He played it at the end of the movie against Teddy KGB. He also watched that Seidel/Chan WSOP Final on tape. At the very end he was going to Vegas to enter the WSOP.
They played a bunch of different stuff when they were trying to get money together to pay back Grandma, but they mostly played Hold Em.

Eric said...

Also I think the point was that luck wasn't a major factor in hold 'em before the boom, now you have a lot of amatuers who don't really know what they're doing causing luck to come into play. The explosion of poker is both a blessing and a curse for the professional players.

Tyler said...

I agree, I kind of liked his point about McD's quote about skill and the same guys sitting at the final table every year, because that isn't happening anymore. Now you get casual players like Moneymaker and Raymer that win and then become a corporation and shoot 900 commercials for poker sites and casinos.

I would also like to thank Simmons for whining about Crawford not stealing any bases in his AL Breakdown article. Crawford's stolen six bases in the last two days for my team. Thanks Bill!

anonymous said...

with regards to poker, i gotta say the lamest possible thing i can think of is letting them wear sunglasses.

the whole "art" to poker is in the bluffing and having a poker face. wearing sunglasses is retarded. if i went into a tourney like that i'd wear a freakin paper bag or a sack on my head just to spite everyone.

speaking of simmons.. has anyone ever had a comment posted in his mailbag? are there that many people that write him all the time, or do u think he makes a few up when need be? ..like when he's on a 5 month hiatus and people have stopped emailing him.

THE CHAMP. said...

I write him weekly. Sometimes it's just "go fuck yourself simmons." (makes me feel better).

Never had anything posted.

The Rev said...

I thought they were playing other games in Rounders. I'll have to go back and watch again.

I had something printed in Simmons' More Cowbell blog in his Fantasy football awards last year. I skewered Willis McGahee in it.

In fact, I went back and found the link.

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/blog/index?entryDate=20060103&name=simmons

Just look for the guy from Philadelphia complaining about McGahee.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I've never had one posted in a mail bag or a chat. He probably makes up a few to use a comment he thinks is funny.

The Rev said...

By the way... I'm out of here until Tuesday. Keep the revolution going without me until then.

Peace, bitches!

THE CHAMP. said...

I forgot I got a response from KC one time. After tearing him apart for posting terrible links constantly he wrote me back. I don't remember exactly what he said but it seemed very childish. After that I always though of KC as a huge moron who was at college on Daddy's dime trying to become a lawyer so he could "work" at Daddy's law firm.

I had one comment posted in a chat once. Team USA is looking good to start the 2nd half vs PR. I hope they take 1st place just to shut Sheridan up.

My highest moment was getting 5 comments posted in one of those NFL Countdown chats one Sunday last year. I was just on a roll. I stuck around for like 3 weeks afterwards, didn't have anything posted.

Wow.

mound of venus said...

cott's sensitivity level is inversely proportional to his talents as a blogger. i also like how a guilty mind works--saying he was not "self-important"--when that is exactly what he is. But whatever, he is in Vegas! What a stud.....

I also move that we name this "Lord(s) of the Flies" or to be a little more street: "Lordz of the Flyz." We need to disassociate from him. He clearly has contempt for us. And plainly cannot see that our comments on his board, and the creation of our own, is simply the need to entertain ourselves during work hours. Nothing more, nothing less. I think he saw himself as something more. Oh, Cott. I wish I could quit you! But alas, you even took away the ability to post. I don't think even men at Brokeback would do that....

thejaywhite said...

I cant help but feel partly responsible for him cutting us off.


Maybe it was the fact I exposed him for being a raving fluffer in the porn industry.

Isiah Thomas said...

He won't be able to silence The Revolution.

Isiah Thomas said...

Lords of Vengeance?

Vengeance of the Flies?

Do we need a response to Cott?

Does he believe what he says? "He gets it?" HA! That pathetic statement alone shows he doesn't.

The Revolution was started so we could actually have something to talk about on a regular basis other than Kid Rock and Coach K's man love for Joe Johnson.

I for one am inspired by him not getting it and vow to devote more energy to the revolution!

VIVA!

thejaywhite said...

Isiah..I think you will win 45+ games and make the playoffs this year.

JFreak said...

I like Lords of Vengeance...has a nice ring to it.

Isiah Thomas said...

yeah its not bad, I like making it a littl street like

Lordz of Vengeance.

As for the Knicks getting to 45+ this season, I'm not sure. I think I'll be a better influence than LB and will lead them to more wins.

However, the Knicks still are a hodgepodge of talent and haven't done enough to leapfrog the bottom dwellars of the Eastern Conference. We'll see though.

The Rev said...

Just checked in from the hotel computer in Boston, and I saw everything.

OK, fine. If that's what he wants, that's what he will get.

I, for one, will never post a comment on his blog again. As far as I am concerned, his link will be removed from here. And yes, our blog should be renamed.

Gang... welcome to your new home.

The Rev said...

Oh, I see I can't post a comment on his blog. My bad.

Actually, I won't bother visiting it nor will I e-mail him. As far as I am concerned, his blog stopped existing today.

If that's what he wants, that's what he will get.

The Rev said...

And for the record, we don't need to respond to him. Let him be. He's obviously suffered enough.

I've had more fun over here in the past four days anyway.

Clarett also apparently had a hatchet with him. An AK-47, numerous handguns, a bottle of vodka, a hatchet, and a lint brush.

I just don't know what to say about him...Is it funny? Is it sad? Is it tragic? I just don't know.

temwr said...

Cott used my Lord of the Flies joke.

That bastard!!!

thejaywhite said...

I dont like the blog name being sons of kc...sounds pretty lame to me..

wheres Beth

Isiah Thomas said...

You don't want lint getting on your AK-47.

Also, I heard he had a CD that was produced by Ohio inmates - it was a bunch of convicts singing kids songs. Heard this on Dan Patrick's show, I'll have to see if it was a joke or if it was real.

Can we change our blog name? No need to give KC any plugs, he'll realize posting lame Kid Rock shit will get you nowhere, fast, well he was already there.

VIVA LA REVOLUTION!

Isiah Thomas said...

If people were only showing up for the comments on KC's shit, why would he shut them down as they were the best part of it? "For the good of the blog"?

Los said...

The good news for Clarett is that he has a helluva potential movie on his hands.

Why is the NHL continuing to try to eliminate fighting? For a number of reasons, they should stick with it. First, the fans love it. Second, it serves a purpose - if you try to cheap shot one of my players, I'm sending the goon out (it is much like when a pitcher nails a hitter).

thejaywhite said...

I wouldnt go into the store cause clarrett might rob it and you might get caught in the cross fire..i think your best bet with clarrett and tyson is to stay on the same side but make no eye contact..keep your head up and look straight..maybe pull out your phone and pretend to talk on it..although clarrett might try and rob you for your phone......clarrett will get a light sentence...less than 3 years he will be on the streets and will attempt an nfl comeback...obviously he will fail at this.

Isiah Thomas said...

Remember Clarett is still waiting for his other trial. I say he gets 5-10.

If I see Clarett I cross the street. He already assaulted some people earlier in the year. If he crosses the street and it looks like he's coming towards me I start yelling "give me the keys ya cocksuckamotherfucka" to no one in particular - try to take him out of his game.

Now is he a victim of circumstance? Maybe in the begining, he was used to win a Title then when it went south he couldn't handle it. But when you have solid people around you trying to help, or when a living legend like Jim Brown reaches out to you and you rebuff him - well you're just a knucklehead at that point.

Its like with Koren Robinson now, how many chances do you get? How many excuses can you make? Eventually you have to let the guy sink or swim, and if he sinks then good riddance.

thejaywhite said...

Im taking into account the fact he has another trial coming..I cant see him not being on the street before 2010.

He will play the whole..was scared for his life...raised by his grandma and 13 siblings and had so much pressure..plus hes an athlete...Tyson for out in 3 years for rape...clarrett hasnt dont anything as bad as that...

Really when it comes down to it hes up for theft under a 1000 (cell phone) and concealing fire arms.. and resisting arrest...those are hardly rape or murder...

he will take a plea and get a 3-6...with good behaviour meaning hes out in 3....and no matter what hes out in 6

Beth82678 said...

So is no one going to comment or post about KC's decision to cut off the comments on his site? C'mon guys, I know SOMEONE must have an opinion about that... :-)

temwr said...

There was some comments about that Beth.

temwr said...

Oh, OK, I get it.

Sarcasm.

I am an idiot.

GM-Carson said...

Damn, I'm gone for 2 days and you guys go and change your name on me. So, just to make sure is the site now "Lords of Vengeance" and dropping the Sons of KC?

Let me know on my blog(s) so I can change it in the links section.

temwr said...

As far as Clarett goes, the worry around here (Columbus) is now that when he does land in prison (when not if) he will get killed there by some Israeli mafia guy.

This story is just amazing.

mound of venus said...

cott is dead to all of us. that guy is a douche. and i am glad the feeling is mutual.

Isiah Thomas said...

KC just felt the heat. We made that blog what it is, now we have our own Lawless Society to run. VIVA! Good luck to him and his 1 Kid Rock like post every 2 weeks.

And Beth made her triumphant debut. Welcome. That's about as warm a fuzzy you'll get.

Who's up with a post today?

Isiah Thomas said...

I think the title will be Lordz of Vengeance.

The Z gives us street cred.

Beth82678 said...

That's ok temwr87, sarcasm is a bitch to get across online. That sucks for me cause I'm a VERY sarcastic person normally. (At this point those of you who read my posts over at "the blog that shall not be named" are going "WHAT?!?! We'd have never guessed!!" :-))

But I have to say, even as much as I thought y'all were riding KC too hard under the circumstances, even I find his cutting off comments pretty lame. My days of lurking over there are gone probably - I think I may actually become a lurker and post the occasional comment over here now.

Beth82678 said...

And Isiah, I'm touched. As Sally Field once said "you like me, you really like me!!!!" ;-)

jugdish said...

Actually I don't think Cott gave a crap about the comments everyone was making on his blog site. I don't think he got what he expected out of the blog at all. I think we wants to write and have his articles be what people come there for, and not the comments section.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

I believe that he wants to take his writing seriously, which is why he cut the comments section off. He probably just realized that having a full fledged blog is not the best way to get his writing across. I think the people who like his writing will go back and read his articles and use his new email address (kind of like Simmons' page), and those who like the comments part more will come here.

I'm sorry, but I just can not consider a golfer the greatest athlete ever.

You can't tell me he took his blog serious with all his "I'll be back with a Vengeance" posts then nothing and then his "Kid Rock is a philospher" posts....in the words of Dr. Evil..."It's sad really" The comments were better than his writing and made the site.

Good god I sound like Rev.

I know this is hard to believe, but sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. Dude is taking the bar exam, and who knows what else. I'll bet he didn't realize that so many people were dependant on what he probably considers a hobby. I guess I'm defending him a little, but I'm just looking at some pretty obvious stuff here.

Puheeheeheehee...Isaih is a funny man!

Judge, I hear ya, as seen by his inactivity the blog wasn't on his priority list, and rightly so I guess.

But don't give me the "let's start some traditions" "back with a vengeance" bs then deliver nothing.

Give me something. Personally we're all indebted to him for help launch this lawless society we call LOV.

Don't worry Beth they will be done talking about him soon.

Also, I don't think I would name a dude who rides a bike the greatest athlete ever.

Really they are talking about the most dominant person at their sport. Which, to me, is a totally different question than "best athlete ever."

True that...I came back looking for an article from him too.
