New Classics

“New Classics” – I saw this on a menu this weekend at a restaurant. Didn’t get it, but I think it applies somewhat to what I’d like to open with…..

Which is…….Tiki Barber is NOT a HOF’er.

First, he’s doesn’t pass the initial “Tiki Barber HOF” test. You say it out loud and it doesn’t sound right. Say “Barry Sanders HOF” then “Tiki Barber HOF” back-to-back, you’ll get my point.

Second, take a closer look at his stats. By the time he’s done he’ll have over 10,000 yds rushing, which is good. In his 10 seasons, he’s gone over a 1000 yds 5 times with this year probably being sixth, again not too shabby. Yet let’s look deeper. To me a 1000 yd season isn’t a big deal anymore – that is only 63 yds per game. To me a good/great season by a RB is 1300+ yds. Of those, he’s only got 3 with this year potentially being his 4th. His receiving #’s are pretty good but not eye popping. So he’d have 4 really good years. If 4 really good years and 2 Superbowls isn’t good enough for Terrell Davis, it’s not good enough for Tiki. And in NYG’s SB run he wasn’t even the main back, he split time with Ron Dayne. Ron….Dayne.

Lastly, why is it when someone like Skunkpatch says “Tiki is a HOF”er” then everyone takes note like he’s Moses with the Commandments? Skunkpatch is obviously biased to NY players so I’m not listening to him on this debate. Tiki Barber, if he retires after this season, is not a HOFer.

He’d be competing with Faulk and Curtis Martin in his first year of eligibility and would be a year behind Bettis. Barber is not in their league. Sorry.

Now, weekend re-cap.

MLB

Detroit evens the WS at 1 game a piece. A story starting to garner some pub is the poo/dirt/pine tar on Kenny Rodgers hand in the first inning. I think the bigger story is why they don’t give the guy an immediate drug test. 1000% chance he’d fail it. He’s on something. First, he’s pitching like Cy Young. They kept flashing stats how Rodgers sucked in his previous post seasons, now he’s having one of the greatest post season runs in MLB history. And he’s jumping around, and ticking like he has terrets. But he’s clean? Riiiiiight. Game 3 on Tuesday. And Pujols herpes seems to be in remission.

CFB

Alright, enough with “And the legend of Brady Quinn grows” – that’s a direct quote from a NDC announcer. Sure, good comeback, but come on UCLA GACKKKKKKKKED it up. After they stopped ND on that 4th down play, UCLA was hamming it up on the sideline like the game was over; there was over 2 mins left. You knew UCLA would play prevent offense giving the ball back to ND. But 3 plays 80+ yds in 30 seconds. God damn. And whoever drafts Szmardia and Quinn will regret it. Quinn is still not a Heisman candidate and ND is not a good team. They should have 3 losses. I hope they get to a BCS game bc they will get destroyed. No one is bring up Chuck Weiss is overrated? Barely beating MSU and UCLA is not good.

UM jumps to #2 in the BCS. That’s 1 and 2 for the Big Ten for those scoring at home.

Nascar

Then points leader Jeff Burton goes out in 42nd and #48 wins. Big points shake-up with #17 taking the lead. Nearly everyone is back in it. It will be a wild last 4 races.


NFL

Wild day. Lots of last second game winning FG’s, highlighted by a 62 yd prayer from Matt Bryant in Tampa. Keep giving me shots of McNabb after the game in stunned disbelief, I love it.

Shawn Merriman out 4 games for roids. Really? Another wild, crazed, hulking specimen of a man is dirty?

And RIP Nelson de la Rosa Pour out some liquor

New Classic Monday.

Hi Bill.

F Chunky Soup, McNabb should get a deal with Pepto or Alka Seltzer.

I'd love to see McNabb doing the

"Nausea, heart burn, upset stomach Diarrhea, indigestion.....Pepto Bis-mal!" - macarena like dance.

The Rev said...

If Tiki Barber is a HOF'er, then let's apply that logic to other players in the league who are comparable or could be comparable to Barber at the end of their careers and see if it sounds right...

Brian Westbrook is a HOF'er
Warrick Dunn is a HOF'er
Edgerrin James is a HOF'er
Corey Dillon is a HOF'er

Does it sound right with any of those guys? I don't think so.

Spaceman Spiff said...

rogers is a fucking cheat even if he pitched good yesterday after cleaning it off, same spot same hand in the ALCS.

The Rev said...

You know, we fail to mention that McNabb, after he ralphed, led them on a TD drive.

On the drive in the Super Bowl where he was accused of wanting to ralph in the huddle, he led them on a touchdown drive.

In another game years ago where he ralphed against Arizona, he threw 4 TD's in that game.

The man is Steamin Willie Beamon from the movie Any Given Sunday.

The Rev said...

Kenny Rogers is an asshole and has been an asshole for years. I wouldn't put it past him.

Isiah Thomas said...

I added a brief NASCAR wrap-up to the post. It was a wild day there also.

Isiah Thomas said...

Why didn't Larussa pull a George Brett moment yesterday?

Either with Rodgers hand or a drug test.

I would have loved to see Larussa run out of the dugout with a cup demanding Rodgers piss in it for a drug test.

The Rev said...

And one comment on the ending to the Eagles game...

I have listened to Merrill Reese, the radio play by play man for the Eagles, for many years. He is a legend in Philly. I heard a replay of his call for the 62 yard field goal.

I've heard Merrill Reese give incredibly excited calls over the years. If you've ever heard the call of the Miracle at the Meadowlands from 1978, that's him. You know what I mean.

This is the first time I've ever heard him completely horrified as to what happened. His call of the feld goal sounded like he had just seen a monster jump into the booth.

whocares said...

Tiki= not HOF'er.

I heard Theisman the other night saying that if Snake Plummer lasted a few more years and won some more ballgames he would be a HOF'er. Is that the criteria now? Just suck it up for a decent team for a few more years and your in the hall. Bullshit.

The Rev said...

And after Kenny Rogers fails the drug test and the umps throw him out of the game, he could come running out fo the dugout going apeshit like Brett did, then follow it up by punching out all the TV cameras next to the dugouts with his bare hands.

That would rule!

The Rev said...

If Jake the Snake even gets that kind of mention as possible HOF'er, that is bullshit.

Now I wonder with him being a topic of conversation. Will Donovan McNabb eventually get HOF status?

El Padrino said...

Solid.

Anyone get the feeling the Notre Dame games are starting to stink like Kenny roger's left hand?

fix.

I wish someone would right an article about ND. A real one.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i want to see him get shelled in game 6

Isiah Thomas said...

I don't get how no one is bringing up the fact that ND has been gifted 2 wins and should have 3 losses.

Chuck Weiss really isn't a great coach and Mrs. Brady Quinn, MD. is not a good QB. Seriously, he's not good.

Isiah Thomas said...

this has been said, but Rodgers should have gone with the poo defense.

"Well guys, truth be told I laid a mean griswold before the first inning and broke paper. Come smell this."

No way it'd be a story this morning.

Eric said...

Tiki Barber is better than Jerome Bettis and Terrell Davis. If he retires after this year I don't think he's a HOF but if he isn't than neither are they. Over his career Barber averages almost a yard more per carry. And he's going to have about 4,000 more recieving yards. Davis retired with like 7,500 rushing yards, sure he was better in his prime, but that was only like 4 years, you have to have an complete career to be in the HOF

Smokin' comparing some of those guys to Barber is a bit of a stretch also, Westbrooks never even rushed for 900 yds. Dunn is slightly comparable but Tiki has has about 600 more rushing and 1300 more recieving yards in almost the exact same amount of games. After his first 7 years Edgerrin James is certainly a HOFer unless he's continues on the path he's gone down this year. And Corey Dillon has 7 1,000 yd seasons, so I think you could say he's pushing HOF status as well.

Eric said...

Rogers was definitely cheating with the poop on his hand, but he pitched pretty well after the first also sans poop so who knows.

Isiah Thomas said...

but Tiki's prime is 4 years. Davis' included 2 Superbowl rings....

Eric said...

I agree, thats why i don't think either of them should be HOF's. I do think that Tiki is retiring in his prime though and if he played 3 or 4 more years, which he easily could, there would be no denying his HOF worthiness.

Isiah Thomas said...

they had the ATL/PIT game on out here. Another wild game.

Vick played well.

The ending was crazy. End of regulation - 1 try for a 56 yd game winner by ATL, kick is good but whistles blew just before the snap for a PIT TO. Next attempt, kick is no good but Palumalu ran into the kicker. 3rd try from 51 - they bring in Morten Anderson who misses short by half a yd, but he makes up for it with the winner in OT.

Eric said...

But it would be like Arod making the HOF. That stats are to good to deny but he was still a pussy when it came to post season.

Spaceman Spiff said...

does dillon own the single game rushing yards record still?

Eric said...

I believe Jamal Lewis has that one. 298 or something like that.

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev - what about McNabb not getting any pts at the end of the 1st half, on the TB 7 yd line....

El Padrino said...

0-5 in pro bets
ouch

tough week, i cant imagine anyone won any $$...unless you loaded up on NE.

whocares said...

In this day and age, you can look at HOF worthiness this way...

Was the guy ever a top 3 pick at his position in any fantasy football league anywhere? Tiki, no.

El Padrino said...

Tiki can be a HOF if he plays another 3 minimum, like E said.

Spaceman Spiff said...

hi-res version of johansson pic i posted last week

El Padrino said...

me like

Spaceman Spiff said...

the raiders are who we thought they were! and we let 'em off the hook!

El Padrino said...

good one spiff

temwr said...

This needs to be the answer:

"truth be told, before I pitched against the Yankees I was in a hurry during my pre-game poop and got some shit on my hand. I pitched so well that I had to put shit on my hand on purpose for the next two games...in the exact same spot too, otherwise I would have jinxed myself."

temwr said...

Can't Tiki and Ronde combine their stats and go into the HOF together as one person? Roki Barber??

THE CHAMP. said...

dear spiff,

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

sincerely

bryan2857

temwr said...

Also, I was amazed at the Iggles clock management at the end of the 1st half....No excuse for not getting 7 or 3 there.

anonymous said...

i dont think i'll be getting up from my desk for a few moments...

anonymous said...

kenny still owned, shit stain or not.

temwr said...

Did someone say Bettis is not a HOFer??? I thought I read that, but can't find it now.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm hoping Skunkpatch didn't have any inside when he alluded to Weiss coaching the Skins. That would test my allegiance to my team if it came to pass.

Spaceman Spiff said...

gibbs didnt wanna put campbell in, in a blowout, and says brunell is stating week 9, what a stubborn bastard

anonymous said...

t-davis.. no.

tiki.. no.

hall of fame criteria (for all sports) seems like they wanna let everyone in nowadays. it's like the voters read shanoff and want every player from our generation in there.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i dont think SP ever has any inside, unless he asks Mortensen

Isiah Thomas said...

where's Meiz?

I bought some vodka over the weekend and found Fleischmann's.

What sold me on it was the plastic bottle said "Traveler"

Isiah Thomas said...

what's really worrisome is that the Skins 1st round pick might come into play with that horrible trade they made with Denver and ATL for TJ Duckett.

They have to give Denver a high 3rd rounder or comparable value, and part of that may include swapping 1st round picks. Yikes.

Water down the playbook and give the kid a look after the bye. It can't hurt.

Isiah Thomas said...

WTF is going on in Philly

Dude will be 45.

Spaceman Spiff said...

the pick is top 20 protected zeke, no worries

Spaceman Spiff said...

just give moyer some pine tar and he'll be fine

Eric said...

moyer tops out at lik 76, he can do whatever it is he does til he's at least in his early 50's

Isiah Thomas said...

good to hear Spiff, it will be a top 10 pick.

Eric said...

I doubt it Isiah, the Redskins can't even suck right, they'll end up winning like 6 in a row to end the season, therefore accomplishing missing the playoffs but still not getting a high draft pick that will help them win next year.

Spaceman Spiff said...

need a high pick to parlay that into a more picks, need some CB's and a pass rusher

Spaceman Spiff said...

this draft should be all defense and maybe some o-line late

Isiah Thomas said...

you might be correct, but all of their remaining games are against playoff hopefull teams, except Tampa. And that game is on the road and they beat them in the playoffs last year so Tampa will be fired up.

Isiah Thomas said...

well didn't they trade away this years #2 in order to move up and draft Mcintosh? Then they traded away their 3rd and 4th rounders for Lloyd?

Not too many picks left. Give Gibbs and Co. 1 more year. Then blow it up.

Trade Moss and Portis for picks and rebuild through the draft. Get healthy with the cap then go after it again.

Isiah Thomas said...

Sucks to be you

Spaceman Spiff said...

note to self: if get drafted by browns, do not sign, force trade, lest i have a major injuries

The Rev said...

"what about McNabb not getting any pts at the end of the 1st half, on the TB 7 yd line"

That decision to throw to LJ Smith at the 2 and have him get stuffed before the goal line made Los break his hat by slamming it on the chair.

No, that wasn't good. McNabb is getting killed on talk radio for that decision.

Spaceman Spiff said...

mcnabb threw every touchdown in that game.

anonymous said...

btw, i love the HOF logic of "say name.. and does it sound right together?"

thats the way they should vote em in or not.

El Padrino said...

after a dismal day - record now human like

it's all about next week
31-31-3

anonymous said...

at least your wife aint beating you

The Rev said...

Jamie Moyer...

he could still have two good years left.

Remember, this is the NL. Not the AL. In the NL, he could make it two years.

Spaceman Spiff said...

SP would say "tiki barber HOFer....
sounds better than a venti latte, he's in"

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tupac, Ice Cube and the fellas earned me my first complaint at my apartment! It certainly won't be the last. How can you bitch and moan about loud music on a Friday afternoon? Also, grow a pair and ask ME. Don't piss to fucking management. People always have their TVs and stereos loud when I come home. Do I bitch about it? NOOOOOO. Fucking gutless wonders.

El Padrino said...

sorry i missed it.

SP is who, exactly.
Shanoff or sports dick?

Martin VanNostrand said...

Phillies should trade for Julio Franco as well. On nights Moyer starts they could announce together them like a WWF tag team "with a combined age of 91 years old..."

Spaceman Spiff said...

sp=skunkpatch

temwr said...

skunk patch = p. king

Martin VanNostrand said...

ha,ha Meiz's neighbor is trying to watch Dr. Phil and can only hear "Here's a little gansta short in size a t-shirt and levis is his only disguise" That's a wack complaint on a Friday afternoon. You gotta find out who did it and constantly refer to the as 'Twan when they pass by.

temwr said...

Have you all seen the video of the Chicago marathon guy who won the race, but crashed at the finish line?

It is hilarious.

El Padrino said...

oh the artist formerly known as fatboy....

got it

off to chipolte for a giant burrito

Isiah Thomas said...

the Chi-town marathon guy falling down is fucking hilarious.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

'Twan?

Isiah Thomas said...

EP I didn't make any bets this past weekend, what a fucked up weekend to bet. I was glad I didn't after watching the endings of some of those games. What a fucked up weekend.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I want Chipotle!

Isiah Thomas said...

used to be the don juan, now ya name is just twan

Isiah Thomas said...

the guy should have complained about BIG and Tupac being dead, not the volume of the music.

The Rev said...

"Phillies should trade for Julio Franco as well."

He started with our organization. He might as well finish with us.

While we are at it, we can take our uniforms back to the original P from the 70's and 80's. That would rule!

Isiah Thomas said...

Scottsdale, Ariz.: What's up with your boy Donovan McNabb throwing up every game?

Michael Wilbon: Egg nog...It's too early to be drinking that stuff...which I told Donovan.


Got this in Wilbon's chat today, this one's for you Rev.

BTW...Paul Girley Shirley has a chat on ESPN today. I will try my best to insult him enough to get a mention.

The Rev said...

Egg nog... classic!

Let's call him Ralph McNabb now.

ToddPacker said...

Mcnabb in his best Ron Burgandy voice:

"It's so hot"
"Egg Nog might have been a bad choice"

Isiah Thomas said...

what was up with the delay before yesterday's game with John Cougar Melloncamp?

Isiah Thomas said...

and the guy singing during the 7th inning stretch must be done away with. Dude is still living off his American Idol days from years past.

And I saw a shitload of towel waving last night.

ToddPacker said...

I'm guessing melloncamp was "getting his head right"

The Rev said...

Anita Baker was getting them to wave the towels before the game.

When Anita Baker is leading your cheers, something is wrong.

anonymous said...

where's the fucking Motown? screw Fox and Chevy and ex-American Idols.

and i dont need to hear any more Mellencamp.. the shit commercial is enough.. and i ranted on my blog about that enough already.

temwr said...

And why did Mellencamp need a 6 person band, only 2 of whom play an intstrument to help him out with his song?

Which brings us to the question of why is there a 6 person band with 2 instrument players?

PGS chats are fun. A LOV mention there would be nice.

ToddPacker said...

IAM

I fully expected a whole Mo-town thing with maybe a little kid-rock mixed in, but mellencamp and american-idol-dude didn't make any sense. I read your blog and totally agree, FOX and Buck equally suck....hey that rhymes

The Rev said...

There should be a rule.

Any big game in Detroit should only have appearances by the following artists...

Stevie Wonder
Aretha Franklin
Smokey Robinson

After that, no one else is allowed to sing during Detroit games.

Man law!

The Rev said...

OK, maybe some Bob Seger and Kid Rock are allowed. But that's it!

The Rev said...

Old school Bob Seger rules!

Isiah Thomas said...

I just read iam's blog. Today's entry is one of the best.

For those who haven't already, it is a MUST read.

The Rev said...

Agreed!

Iam brought the noise today!

Isiah Thomas said...

Since its close to Halloween I've been trying to watch Horror movies......

I saw one of the Jason movies the other day, "Jason Takes Manhattan". These movies are really funny now. Please take some time and check them out if you stumble across them.

I've said this before, the '80's got one thing right in movies : the synsethizer solo. You can't beat it.

Isiah Thomas said...

speaking of the '80's. I feel totally gipped having been a kid then.

The Rev said...

Zeke...

How old were you in the 80's?

I was 8 in 1980, and 17 in 1989, so I was a kid for most of it. But I remember it all too well.

I'm two years older than you,(10 in '80, 19 in '89) so I would say remembering the 80's is one thing, but looking through pictures can be scary as hell.

anonymous said...

speaking of halloween.. i got the 3 Scream flicks coming in the mail, just watched the first Jason (only the first couple are good), and of course will have to watch Halloween when the time comes.

if not, my Michael Myers bobblehead will hop off the tv and kill me.

anonymous said...

and yes, im full of hatred and spite, so my blog reflects that.

:)

El Padrino said...

halloween with meyers is my favorite, i really like J-dub too
shout out to Freddy but those two are a first 1 and 2

the scream flicks, pretty good for slasher style pics
one and two are better then 3

The Rev said...

Thank God I'm not the oldest one here.

Yeah, Zeke... you got gypped a little.

The pics from the 80's are a little frightening, but not as frightening as pics from the 70's.

anonymous said...

EP, im with you.. each of those series it was all about numbers 1 & 2..

i think i nailed down what made the first few Jasons good... it was the killings. each killing was different, i think up until 3. then they finally had repeat killing-style, and it all went downhill.

he was very resourceful, killing with what was available.. then when he went to just the plain knife, it got whack.

maybe he needed a contract year, to keep it fresh.

El Padrino said...

agreed. it was the killings

i like where your head's at today iam.

temwr said...

iam is in the zone.

JFreak said...

autozone.

temwr said...

i too was born in 77. it was truly a great year.

anonymous said...

my buddy and i discovered that when we had a horror-movie-a-thon.

we started dissecting the movies and practically had score sheets out. we were like 'oh look, thats an inventive death!'

jamming an arrow through someone's neck from underneath a bed... now thats inventive, takes patience, and needs to be well planned. especially if you wait until theyre done having sex on said bed.

see, J-dub at least let the dude bust one.. yeah he's a mass murderer, but he didnt blue-ball the dude. he knows Murder Man Law!

Martin VanNostrand said...

I can remember beat boxing while walking through the mall in 85 and my mom smacking me. She said I sounded as if I was having some type of attack. I was 10.

My grammar school and jr. high years were in the 80's. It was fun but highschool would have been much cooler then.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Ha ha, JV not letting his murderous ways be a cock block is too funny.

anonymous said...

it's all about respect.

temwr said...

Horror movies now are not about inventive deaths really, they are more about "who is the masked killer?"

Although Scream had a couple interesting deaths, but really it's almost as if it's all been done before. Death isn't enough, it needs to be a death with some sort of catchy gimmick.

temwr said...

cnn.com has all the inventive deaths now. horror flicks have nothing on the psychos that actually are out there killing.

anonymous said...

like the dude that burned his gal, and left her severed head on the stove?

yeah i'd say that was psycho.

new horror movie that has inventive deaths.. Saw (although #2 was only so-so)

El Padrino said...

final destinations all have cool deaths

temwr said...

I HATE Saw because of the way they made Danny Glover an idiot cop.

Sgt. Murtaugh can never be cast as an idiot bumbling cop who doesn't get his man!

Martin VanNostrand said...

Anybody's parents ever leave them in the car in the 80's like it was their babysitter? My mom would go in the supermarket or department store and leave my brother and I out in the car while she shopped. We had he-mans to play with so we didn't care plus I guess it kept us from raising hell in the store. If I try this when my kid is 5 or 6 I bet the cops are waiting for me when I get to the car.

temwr said...

yeah you would probably get arrested now.

El Padrino said...

not only did I get left in the car but i also got slapped around in public

america=pg and pc
boo

anonymous said...

by the power of grayskull..

temwr said...

left in car, check

slapped in public, check

given beer in public when not 21, check

got to drive the car when i was 12 on a real road, check

had a dvd player in the car to entertain me on long trips, che...umm hell no.

got smacked by teachers and then once my parents found out my teachers smacked me i got smacked again, check

only 1 water break per football practice, check

Isiah Thomas said...

Has anyone seen "Silent Night Deadly Night"?

That has some quality kills.

temwr said...

Shirley chat has started.

First question:

Are you going to retire now?

temwr said...

I liked it when Santa killed the naked chick on the deer antlers.

That might have been like SNDL 7 or something.

Isiah Thomas said...

tem I was def thinking about the chick on the antlers, that's the first one I believe.

And he decapitates one guy with an ax as he's sledding down a hill.

El Padrino said...

paris hiltons kill on House of Wax was pretty good

Martin VanNostrand said...

El P - I was no stranger to physical discipline in front of a neighborhood audience either.

One time my brother and I were fighting in the car. This lady comes out of the market and bangs on the window and tells us to stop. We stop and then she waits like 10 minutes until my mom comes to the car to tell her we were fighting. Of course mom thanks her and proceeds to slap us right in front of this ho. That was probably 24 years ago and I can still remember that ladys face.

The Rev said...

My best kill in a movie was not a horror movie.

In the movie Breakdown with Kurt Russell, Kurt kills the bad guy at the end by dropping a tractor trailer truck on him that was hanging from the bridge above.

If you're gonna kill a man, drop a full tractor trailer on him from above. That's as final as it gets.

The Rev said...

I think most of our parents and teachers did stuff to us back in the day that nowadays would warrant arrest or suspension.

Heck, I am convinced to this day that most of the teachers at the school I attended were all bipolar lunatics. Two of them used to make fun of me for being a fat kid, like I wasn't getting enough abuse from the ones my age. But I laugh at those teachers now because they were pathetic anyway.

And I got slapped in the face so hard once, it knocked out a tooth. Granted it was loose already. But that tooth flew away from me on that slap and it cost me at least a buck from the tooth fairy.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

I can remember my Mom picking me up for pre-school and I would stand in the passenger site for the ride home.

That would be her ass nowadays, people would be blowing horns and yelling at her.

ToddPacker said...

What the worst object to get beat with?

My mom could give out serious ass-whippins with a wiffleball bat. Those yellow bats packed quite a sting.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Hell, look what they did to Britney, when I was 10 or so my dad would always let me sit in his lap and drive.

I don't know if things are better or worse now, but certainly different.

anonymous said...

yous kids and your big pants and loud muzak!!!

El Padrino said...

well besides the good old-fashioned wooden spoon and/or belt the fat red bats were always interesting to

temwr said...

green sticks, the ones that don't break, they just tear, those sucked to be hit with.

temwr said...

And I made another Shirley chat. It is the low of low chats, but I made it.

No LOV mention though. The ones I sent in with that on it did not make it.

temwr said...

I succeeded and failed miserably.

Isiah Thomas said...

I think we're onto something here....

I got spanked a few times but never tasted the backs of any hands.

The mouth washing with soap always sucked hard too.

temwr said...

The one about AND1

Tom(Columbus, OH)

ToddPacker said...

soap in the mouth sucked

I remember one summer, it was like the first full week of summer vacation. My brother and I got into so much trouble my mom put us to bed at like 3:30 in the afternoon. It was like serving 10 years in prison, high torture for a 8 year old.

El Padrino said...

mom threw my sega genesis in the trash after i got caught writing grafitti in school, i was like 11 or 12

El Padrino said...

and heartbroken

anonymous said...

no more nhl 94 for you... ouch.

Isiah Thomas said...

speaking of And1. The Professor is well past his sell-by date. The guy has got to go.

All he does is pound the ball into the ground then simultaneously wiggle his elbows and do a moonwalk. It never works.

Hey, halloween costume party this saturday, I have no idea what to go as. LOV needs to bail me out with a good costume idea.

I know we talked about that a week or so back, but I figure there are some better ideas out there now.

speaking of corporal punishment...

at jv hoops practice one time, a varsity assitant coach (who happened to also be the football coach) brings a guy over tells us to practice giving this guy a charge.

The guy was a big lerch type guy who only played bc he was tall. He totally sucked. The coach was yelling at him calling him a pussy and shit, made him stand under the hoop as we sprinted at the guy from the other baseline. Boom, boom, boom. One after another just barrelling right into the guy. I felt bad for the kid after about the 6th guy who steamrolled him. But damn if it wasn't funny to watch.

"Get up boy, take the charge (BOOM)....get up boy, get up faggot....(BOOM)...."

I'm cracking up remembering it.

I remember my freshman football coach wanted to get us pumped up before a big game, so he took around his walkman with "insane in the membrane" on it and had us all listen to about 10 seconds of it.

Not only is this the stupidest idea I had ever heard, but I got to go first, so I got 10 seconds of static before his tape of it (taped from the radio of course) even started.

El Padrino said...

tem-
scarface (but you have to nail the accent)

the verizon guy with the black framed glasses

Tiger Woods- just walk around fist pumping all night

temwr said...

I can't do accents at all. They all sound either Scottish or Indian...or Scottish and Indian mixed together.

Tiger Woods would be easy. Plus he is basically as white as I am anyway.

THE CHAMP. said...

I know that SG will never take my email so i'm going to put it here:

This was in last weeks picks column...

Which reminds me, M.T. Miller from Atlanta sent this along:
"I got an advanced copy of the punishment for 11 Dartmouth players involved in the melee with Holy Cross: (1) Banned from the fall regatta; (2) Valet parking privileges suspended for one month; (3) Spa services limited to Swedish massage for two weeks. It's time we send the Ivy League thugs a message."

This is an exact quote from a local radio station skit. Ball dip this man IAM ball dip him NOW!!!!

jugdish said...

I think spaceman spiff had poop on his hands when he played some of the LOV games...8000+ on the pendulum game? That reeks of poop hands!

Beth82678 said...

Tem, I say you go as Iam. Sure no one would have any idea who the hell you are but you could hate on people to their face all night and then just blame it on your character. :-)

anonymous said...

::the sound you hear is deez nutz scraping across his forehead::

temwr said...

I hate when people rip off funny things and forget to give credit.

Always give credit where credit is due.

Isiah Thomas said...

Spiff is a coherent rain man with those fucking games.

anonymous said...

and i 2nd the 'poop hands on spiff' campaign.

ABJ is now ABSS!

temwr said...

Going as Iam is a good idea.

I will just hate on everything.

Although most of my friends would not be able to tell the difference between my Iam costume and my normal self. I am a cynical bastard who hates pretty much everything.

The more I think about it the more I like this verizon wireless guy. Easy costume, everyone will know who I am...

Martin VanNostrand said...

Tem - go as Kenny Rogers both the singer and the pitcher. Get a white beard, a Tigers cap and rub some poop on your hand.

temwr said...

I was jazzed when I broke 1K on the pendulum game.

and if you want to take it a step further you make some people follow you around all night wearing phone men gear

or follow around some random guest that actually has verizon service

this is genius

temwr said...

Re: kenny rogers

I could also punch anyone with a camera.

I am liking this idea...

Martin VanNostrand said...

The chat is over now, I didn't get in posting as sonsof (kc). Sheridan allowed it that one time but Shirly wasn't having any of it.

Spaceman Spiff said...

since halloween is coming up, i want to give you all
nightmares

mwahahaha

anonymous said...

i sent in an invite to Shirley.. told him we had a bitter and sarcastic sports blog..

he has a myspace page?? we need to go pimp it over there.. he could be our "famous" blogger.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Prediction on the next SG mail bag

Gus (Housatonic, MA)

Bill what are you going to be for Halloween?

SG: Either the Verizon guy with a gray jacket and black rimmed glasses and have House and Jacko follow me around in phone line workers gear or Kenny Rogers...both the pitcher and the singer. I'll get a false white beard a Tigers cap and have the Dooz crap on my hand.

Hi Bill.

temwr said...

If I knew his email addresses I'd send that question in right now. I'm sure someone here knows it and has already done so.

El Padrino said...

great, great call martin

temwr said...

Shirley would probably fit in around here. I bet he can bring the hate.

temwr said...

OK, it is settled. I am going as verizon guy and the gf is going as a phone. She didn't want to go as a phone worker guy.

I'd argue with her, but frankly I am just jazzed that I don't have to think about my costume all week.

Also, she wouldn't go as Mrs. Tiger and wouldn't go as a camera man so I could punch her as K. Rogers.

Isiah Thomas said...

PGS has to tone down his act or he won't get another NBA job. We're too street for him.

ToddPacker said...

MV

Great SG mailbag prediction.

Martin VanNostrand said...

On the PGS chat I asked if he thought Telfair had anything to do with the Biggie/Tupac shootings. Can't believe he didn't take that one. That was gold.

El Padrino said...

wise decision Tem

whocares said...

You could go as A-Rod with two huge purple balloons taped to your face...

El Padrino said...

Jints tonight baby!

20-16

The Rev said...

Why'd you do that Kenny? Why? You're my hero. And you do something dirty. Like poop. Poop hands. I hate you Kenny Rogers, I hate you.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i did a sweetheart teaser on just tonight's game just for the fuck of it:
dallas +9.5
new york +16.5
over 30
under 56

anonymous said...

MV is quality.

temwr said...

I missed it why did Bledsoe get benched? Is he hurt??

Spaceman Spiff said...

bledsoe makes too many mistakes, red zone INT. fortunately, Romo is very Bledsoe-esque. 3 INTs in 2nd half including a red zone INT return TD that looked like the bledsoe vs the iggles INT. conclusion, cowboys are stuck. at least they tried, which is more than i can say for the fucking redskins, fuck brunell.

temwr said...

So he realized he sucks? Too bad Romo sucks too.

THE CHAMP. said...

So do you think ESPN will do one of those 360 games the next time Kenny Rogers pitches? They could have an iso camera on his left hand.

Los said...

Love to see the Cowboys shoot themselves in the foot over and over again. For all those "Tony Romo Must Start" fans, I hope you enjoyed this one. Good thing the Cowboys wasted $25 million on T.O. instead of improving their O-line and going out to get a qb.

Shouldn't there be some sort of buddy movie coming out starring Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones at this point?

El Padrino said...

Giants = best team in NFC East

Eagles = close second but the collapse at the Linc was huge, cuz know they gotta win at the Meadowlands.

El Padrino said...

No TEM he sucks moose nuts

The Rev said...

Giants are the best team in the NFC East... for now.

The collapse at the Linc was beyond huge. And we do have to win at the Meadowlands.

Stupid mistakes have kept the Eagles from being 7-0. They have to eliminate those mistakes.

El Padrino said...

"I'm ashamed," Parcells said, "to put a team out there that played like that. I apologize to the people who came out to watch that."

gotta love the guy a little..

Los said...

I will love Parcells unconditionally if he punches T.O. in the teeth on national television.

El Padrino said...

ND garbage

jugdish said...

I'd like to send a big THANK YOU out to Tony Romo, for if it was not for his game clinching interception in the red zone, Jay Feely would not have had a chance for the extra point kick in the last 3 minutes of the game that gave me a half a point win in my money league game. Thanks for coming through in the clutch for me Romo!
