The turn of the tide..

Da-da-da-daaaaaaaaaa!

(Ba-bum ba-bum!)

da-da-da da-daaaaaaaa!

TO = MNF = Dropped passes = not mouthing off = 1st time ever = beautiful thing!

We witnessed TO relegated to sitting down and being quiet because he finally couldn't yell at anyone.. he only could blame himself for The Drop. Chomp a chode, TO. We hate you.

it's tuesday morning hack time! everybody bitch about Bledsoe and his suckiness! yay! keep up that chant for Romo.. oh wait.. same end result!

Yes, it was a small surprise that the Little D actually made the change, if only because it was a MNF game. Obviously the change was going to be made, but against the Giants? Hmm. Tuna of the Sea meet the Titanic, cause your shiat is goin down. This ship can't be righted at this point.. you need a massive overhaul on the gals on the O-line. You can't keep a QB upright, no matter who it is. Bledsoe is not the problem. Oh, dont get me wrong, Bledsoe *is* a problem. He's just not their biggest problem right now.

But you're not really gonna go anywhere with Bledsoe anyways, just in general, so might as well start the Romo era. That's what you get though.. Dallas knew they were pinning their hopes to a 2nd string/veteran backup guy. He is what he is, and you get what you get.

Also this weekend, we had a number of QBs get banged up. Hasselnutsack, Little Ben, and even Peyton got pulled like taffy.. so to the 'Jaws' and the Mike Irvins of the world.. yeah, they are definitely 'protecting' the QBs too much. Will anyone be fined for these hits? Probably not, because they werent really blatant & deserving.. but usually it calls for a 2nd look when a Q' gets hurt.

Back to speaking of football teams that self-destruct... (well, this is at least their city).. this guy from Philly kept it real.

And a 'sucks to be you' moment for the Gints.. Arrington is out. For awhile.

World Series stuff for a second, other than tonight being a key momentum game.. as a follow up, I'm going to go on record that the media is such a fat sack of crap and I hate them.. ESPN is officially making a living off of making up stories. Kenny Rogers and "I broke paper"-gate. If he would've had this on his hand for more than 1 inning, it would've been a story. He had it on for ONE inning, which wasn't even his strongest inning, and then pitched 7 more scoreless. The man is on fire. A second reason as to why this probably was a setup (by Kenny).. Tony (Daniel-san) Larussa made a comment about "not letting someone intimidate you". Coupled with how Rogers was waving his hand around excessively in that first, touching his hat (front to back) numerous times, I think it was more to get in the head of the batters. I'm sure all of the pitchers on both sides used a little something in that cold weather. That's not really up for debate, because why wouldn't Larussa check him? Cause his own guys would be checked, that's why. But Kenny definitely put it out there in plain view, I think to screw with the Card's batters.. and it worked.

Following my ADD train of thought... seriously, this Merriman with steriods thing is getting swept under the rug like you wouldnt believe. We go from his retarded 'machine gun arms' celebration and being The Next, to him being pumped up because he's on greenies.. yet hardly anyone cares. Good timing buddy.

You want a WTF? In West Philadelphia, born and raised...

Hoopsketball is coming soon.. didnt take too long after Jay-Z entered the NBA realm to get rappers and ballers involved in shootings. But I think the main story here is one that is being completely overlooked. The rapper Fabolous' real name is "Skylar John Jackson". Skylar.

Once had a waiter at Red Lobster named Sky, and he was awful. Skylar aint much better. If youre a 6 yr old girl, we're cool, if not.. the name has got to go. Thanks "Fabolous".

Just another beautiful day in the neighborhood....

Hi Bill!

Rev the Giants are so far ahead of the Eagles it ain't even funny. The Eagles have played an easy schedule and gacked up 3 games.

Quite a statement from them last night. I don't think the Giants D is that great (Dallas made them look good), but it is a decent enough unit.

3-0 in the division is huge for them.

And no need to say anything about Washington, I and everyone else know they are a bad football team at the moment.

Isiah Thomas said...

I still don't get why people bash Snyder. He just wants his team to win and he's willing to pony up the cash money to do it. I'd much rather have an owner like that than an owner who would (see Bill Bidwell).

jugdish said...

I'm right there with you on Rogers' pitching performance the other night, but LaRussa dropped the ball as a manager on that one. He should have thrown a fit, done whatever he had to do to draw attention to that. He could have got Rogers tossed, and maybe even suspended depending on what that stuff was.

Do you think Pudge used the line from Major League??

"You put poop, on the ball?!?!"

Isiah Thomas said...

great call on Skylar....

anyone with that name should be a 3rd grade girl with a My Little Pony Trapper Keeper. What kind of "gangsta" rapper has that name?

The Rev said...

Giants ahead of the Eagles... right now I have to agree.

"so far ahead of the Eagles it ain't even funny"... no, I can't accept that.

The three losses have all been a result of stupid mistakes by the Eagles. The Eagles are not getting beat by the other team, they are beating themselves. In each of those three losses, you can pont to a dumb penalty by the Eagles defense that helped cause the loss.

Giants... Trent Cole kicking that guy in the nuts. Saints... Omar Gaither as the 12th man on the field that took away the game breaking sack. Bucs... Jerome McDougle getting 30 yards of penalties on one play after kicking the fag.

True stat... the Eagles have not been behind in any game this season with 10 seconds left in the 4th quarter. And they've engineered two straight 17 point comebacks in the second half. This team at minimum should be 6-1.

I agree it's completely the Eagles fault that they are 4-3. And they're making dumb mistakes that put them there. But the Giants are not that far ahead. In fact, I think the Eagles can win in NY if they play the way they are supposed to play. Not saying tey definitely will... but they can.

temwr said...

Skylar is a good stripper name.

The Rev said...

I hope Will Smith buys the Sixers and performs at every halftime show.

It will be more interesting than the actual basketball game.

The Rev said...

And are you really surprised right now that guy who pulled the gun is from Philly?

We're fuckin crazy and on the edge around these parts right now.

anonymous said...

"My Little Pony Trapper Keeper"


just repeating that quote incase you miss it the first time around.

El Padrino said...

No big deal about Arrington, probably better off without him.
Got Blackburn, Torbor or Short.

I don't know Rev, I mean the Iggles didn't exactly dominate the Boys last time they played until the 4th quarter. The giants out
right dominated them from start to finish in front of their own fans.

After the Bucs and Texans the Giants go back to playing very good teams. And you know more than anything that 3-0 in the division is yeee-uggge.

Props to Iam for a solid Tuesday post

El Padrino said...

Skylar?
I'm glad Telfair's boy shot him.

The Rev said...

"I still don't get why people bash Snyder."

I'll tell you why.

Because he spends more money on failure than any other owner in the league.

Sure, he spends the money to win. But he spends it on the wrong talent. There's spending to win, and then there's being smart about it.

anonymous said...

if will smith performed the Fresh Prince theme, then maybe we'd be talkin..

but i fear that Mr Smith would perform something mediocre, then follow it up his heavy-handed attempts at blaming young black males and the rap community in general.

grandstanding, indeed.

El Padrino said...

everyone seems to be ok with the baseball pine tar thing
as usual (as Iam mentioned) ESPN is over-doing it. Just like the Cory Lidle thing.

Merriman thing is huge. That guy really fucked up. Started in the Pro Bowl as a rook, def rook of year, this year had a shot at def player of year....i mean damn son.
Was it worth it?

temwr said...

Bon Jovi and Will Smith should buy the Sixers...Maybe BJ will let WS own a piece of the Soul too.

anonymous said...

rev, look at what the Lions have spent.. at least the Skins start with the potential to possily win (look at all the preseason picks).

Ford is definitely at the top (bottom) of the list as far as owners go.

El Padrino said...

Will Smith is old.
Anyone see a pic of him lately?
Glover looks younger

anonymous said...

EP,

who's cory lidle again?

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev look at the Eagles opponents then look at the Giants. Much more impressive wins for the G-Men. And they completely dominated that game last night.

Isiah Thomas said...

Ok rip Snyder for spending his money?

What would you rather him do, not spend at all and be under the cap and waste it?

The point is, he cares about winning.

Now whether he goes about it the right way is another thing.

temwr said...

Quick background info...I am in a 29pt league, if your team scores 29 you win.

Tony Romo is my new hero because the Gints were sitting on 29 (I have the Falcons) and his pick 6 put them over the top. This guaranteed that the pot rolled over to yet another week.

The Rev said...

"The giants out right dominated them from start to finish in front of their own fans."

I call serious BULLSHIT there!!!

Did you even watch that game in the first three quarters, ElP? The score at halftime was Eagles 17, Giants 7. After three quarters, it was 24-7.

The field position for the game tying field goal with 7 seconds left was gift wrapped to you by Trent Cole's dumb penalty.

Plaxico Burress spent most of the game ranting and raving on the sidelines because things were going so badly.

The only time the Giants dominated was the 4th quarter. The Eagles outgained the Giants in total yards, rushing, and passing.

I'm just as mad at the Eagles for blowing a game that should have been won. But really... the Giants were more lucky than good that day.

Isiah Thomas said...

at first Snyder was spending money on washed up bums but recently (the past 3 seasons) the FA acquisitions have paid off. It looks like they missed with last years crop though.

temwr said...

Snyder will soon be paying Notre Dame 500 million dollars to get Chuckie Wiess.

El Padrino said...

Wait I have a "Skylar" idea.
Instead of saying "fabulous" I'm going to say "Skylar" like above.

And I have another "skylar" idea.
A list of musicians that own sports teams.

Like what if MC Hammer owned the Montreal Expos? Would they have been on the brink of bankruptcy or would Hammer save them?

Could Master P own the New Orleans Saints, and after every big play he would make the crowd say "UUUUHHHHHH, NNNNNAAAANNNAAAAHH"

El Padrino said...

rev im talking bout the game against the Cowboys

the giants dominated the boys but the eagles did not til the 4th Q.

using the cowboys as a measuring stick.
I know the Jints got away with one in philly.

The Rev said...

Got it, ElP.

You scared me there for a sec. The wording of the post made it easy for me to think you were talking about the Eagles.

Can you tell I'm a little pissed off about the state of the Eagles right now?

Isiah Thomas said...

I pray they don't get Chuck Weiss. What has the guy proved as a head coach? That he can barely beat MSU and UCLA? Impressive.

El Padrino said...

yeah rev you jumped all over that like monica on bills schlong

weiss + Redskins = DISASTER

ToddPacker said...

62 yard game winning field goal.

I figured I would pile on and add to you mood, Rev

Los said...

"I still don't get why people bash Snyder. He just wants his team to win and he's willing to pony up the cash money to do it."

EVERY GM wants his team to win. But it is painfully obvious that Snyder does not know the first thing about buiding a winning team. Sure, money is important, but throwing it around aimlessly doesn't help. Let somebody with some football knowledge run the team, already.

Los said...

Can't we have a movie with Snyder and Jerry Jones and call it Dumb and Dumber? Wait, that name has been used already.

temwr said...

I would love to see this football staff:

Art Shell
Denny Green
Mike Martz

I wonder if Snyder would hire all three.

El Padrino said...

While were piling it on the Skins, why can't Campbell start?

I want to know what coach's daughter he slept with.

The Rev said...

The Giants did dominate that game last night. I give them credit.

But it's not like the Eagles had a bad game against the Cowboys. Far from it. In fact, I might even say the Eagles played them pretty well.

McNabb went for over 350 yards and two TD's passing, along with one rushing. They sacked Bledsoe 7 times. That's not too shabby.

Again, a dumb defensive penalty by Michael Lewis almost set up the Boys for the tying TD at the end. Thank God Bledsoe is dumber and made a bigger mistake.

And in the end... the Eagles beat the Cowboys by 14 points, and the Giants beat the Cowboys last night by 14 points. It's a wash.

And the Giants happened to catch the Cowboys in a quarterback controversy during the game. It does make them easy to dominate when Tony Romo hands you the ball 3 times in the second half. Not saying Bledsoe would have been any better or worse... who knows. But you have to take it into account.

The Rev said...

Thanks, Todd. You're a real prince.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go pour antifreeze on my balls, which I have just shaved with a rusty nail.

The Rev said...

LOUD NOISES!!!!

temwr said...

CBS sportsline has determined that all of my $$$ fantasy league matchups ended in a 0-0 tie. People are pissed. It is fun to listen to people bitch.

Obviously CBSsportsline will fix it, but people still whine anyway.

The Rev said...

By the way...

I have seen Will Smith perform the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme live at Live 8. The whole crowd was singing along to it for him. And Jazzy Jeff was on the wheels of steel.

It was definitely a great moment.

temwr said...

Crap they already fixed it. Well it was a fun morning. Sample quotes (keep in mind these aren't jokes, these idiots are serious, which actually adds to the humor):

"WTF, I know I scored more than 0 points."

"I thought we had a tie breaker."

"Did everyone really tie? Is that even possible?"

El Padrino said...

rev pop a muscle relaxer and go lay down

temwr said...

Rev needs a forty and a muscle relaxer.

El Padrino said...

it could be worse, he could be a cowboy fan

The Rev said...

I've been off them for a few days. And the pain hasn't gone away. I just deal with it now.

Maybe I oughta take a few tonight. Relax with a bottle of wine, and go all Keith Richards on you all for a night.

The Rev said...

"it could be worse, he could be a cowboy fan"

I heard that!

ebntx said...

so i take it you guys don't like the cowboys?

El Padrino said...

as Cedric the Entertainer would say in Barbershop:

Maaaaaann, FUCK the cowboys!

ebntx said...

its ok, with a o-line like dallas has (or doesnt have), i am not expecting much. yet, i am a cowboy fan.

El Padrino said...

why after every controversey does the word "gate" have to appear after the word in question?

it's stupid.

ebntx said...

you are right elp, gotten a little carried away now.

anonymous said...

i am indifferent to dallas in general.. but while TO is on their team, i hope they all suffer miserably and lose.

i hate TO-gate.

ebntx said...

i cant stand him either, but if he catches (using lightly) the ball its all good with me.

thejaywhite said...

TO is top 5 players in the game....I love how all you guys bash him for a dropped pass when he does it maybe twice a game. If thats the case why dont we make fun of mcnabb for everytime he gets sacked or overthrow a reciever.

Who cares, hes good at what he does and you dont like him. Hes got 25 million reasons to not care what you think

Isiah Thomas said...

Los is upset at Snyder because he didn't get the custodian job at Six Flags.

anonymous said...

ya know how a while back i said that DS blog followed the EXACT rundown of the front WWL page?

today's daily quickie is following suit, practically to the T.

just sayin...

ebntx said...

wow, i have to say i agree with tjw.

Isiah Thomas said...

Can I get a Superbowl trophy count from Philly fans?

ebntx said...

ouch, zeke

The Rev said...

"Can I get a Superbowl trophy count from Philly fans?"

FUCK ME!

Isiah Thomas said...

I'll piggy back tjw and eb. Philly fans are too scarred from TO to be remotely objective.

99% of what you get from TO is an act to get a reaction.

The guy doesn't give a fuck so why should anyone give a fuck about him?

anonymous said...

TO is a great receiver.

TO is also a huge dickhead, which makes him an easy target for ridicule.

i gotta get back to doing crunches in my driveway..

El Padrino said...

Not sure if TO is still top 5...he was for awhile but maybe not anymore. Top 10 yes. And this year he already has 5 drops. That's alot for TO. He barely has 6 a year.

ebntx said...

and i will repeat, i dont like the guy, but if he can catch a few balls and get in the endzone at times, you gotta love that. especially with qbs that cant stay off the turf.

ebntx said...

i am starting to think bledsoe and romo had a halftime bet to see who could get sacked and int'ed the most. you got to give it to romo even with arrington out he still found a way to win that matchup.

ebntx said...

but hey guys dont forget i am a fan.

Isiah Thomas said...

Don't worry Philly Fans, you guys are the Buffalo Bills of the 2000's.

thejaywhite said...

the thing with TO...is he has the 2nd worst starting QB in the league passing to him..and his Oline is terrible...and he still gets the stats...not as good as before but cmon...his QB is on his ass every play so he has to run short routes....

temwr said...

TO is not a top 5 receiver. He alligator arms too many passes and he whines too much. I don't care what you say, but whining to the QB/Coach/Media off the field affects the play on the field.

TO is the ARod of football. He hasn't been clutch for years, gets paid a lot of money and he is a locker room cancer. Albeit for different reasons. TO is a dickhead and Arod sucks dickheads.

The Rev said...

"i dont like the guy, but if he can catch a few balls and get in the endzone at times, you gotta love that."

Funny... that's exactly what I was saying about him in 2004.

Los said...

Seriously, Isaiah - I'm pissed because I didn't get that custodian job at Six Flags? Is this the best we can get from Redskins fans?

thejaywhite said...

in 2004 he was by far the best player on that eagles teamm..you cant argue the fact that the guy brings it on game day

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Thank God for the PeaPods on my "gettin healthy" week.

Isiah Thomas said...

I never claimed to be Einstein. I'd never make it on Yo Momma.

Throw me a bone Los.

Los said...

So, let me get this straight, Isaiah. Because I offer some criticisms of the Redskins (valid, in my opinion), you get all defensive.

When is your eighth grade graduation, anyway?

El Padrino said...

Hey Todd Pack
i think Tebow will win a Heisman before it's all said and done.

El Padrino said...

FYI

Mike Hart hasn't fubmled in 674 carries

THE CHAMP. said...

CBS and ESPN decided that they can't call the Georgia-Florida game "The world's largest outdoor cocktail party."

The world sucks.

Isiah Thomas said...

ooooooh war of words with Los!

Come on dude. You hate on Snyder because Philly teams suck dick and constantly choke. I get the self loathing, we hate the world, we'll boo Santa act Philly fans have. If I cleaned gutters for a living I would be in the same boat.

Los said...

Can't wait for the "unofficial title game" between Michigan and Ohio State. Not sure which team to root for - please give me reasons on why I should root for one or the other (keep in mind, I'm a Penn State fan).

Spaceman Spiff said...

El Pad, you have committed what is known as a jinx

Isiah Thomas said...

Los - how many Lombardi trophies do the Eagles have?

Pretty much ends the argument.

Isiah Thomas said...

Michigan, because they fucking OWN Penn St.

Los said...

Wow, a "gutter cleaner" joke. All we need now from Isaiah is a plumber/union worker joke and we'll have hit for the cycle.

I'm not hating on the Redskins. They needed to address the qb situation in the offseason, and instead Snyder overbid on some receivers ... it made no sense.

Los said...

See - I fully understand that good teams don't lose games like the Eagles have lost. Good teams don't make mistakes like the Birds have made.

And what I've seen from the Redskins is that they are NOT a good team, and HAVEN'T been a good team since Snyder bought the team for shits and giggles.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd imagine you have to be able to read and write to become a unionized employee, so that disqualifies 95% of Philly fans right there.

Los said...

And yes, I'm fully aware of Michigan owning Penn State, but man i really don't like Ohio State.

Isiah Thomas said...

I do believe the Skins made it farther than the Iggles last season though.

Los said...

Now that one was your first good one, Isaiah. I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.

Los said...

How many yards did Brunell pass for in that one playoff game - 49? Fantastic - let's stay the course.

How did the Skins do the four previous seasons? Just wonderin'. And I'm only comparing the "Snyder era" Skins - I fully understand that Washington was once on the map when it came to football.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'll just compare the "Superbowl Era" then.

I'm counting 3 for the Skins and a bagel for the Iggles.

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

Nah Spiff, for it to be a jinx an announcer has to say it during or before the game.

Los said...

Can't argue with that - the Skins were really good once, before they apparently moved to Arizona.

CAAAAAAAT FIIIIIIIIIGHT!

ebntx said...

one question for the rev and los. did you guys boo the iggles when mcnugget got drafted?

Los said...

to be honest, I didn't boo, but I wanted them to trade with the Saints to get all of their draft picks - at the time, the Birds had a lot of holes to fill ... apparently, some of those holes still exist.

ebntx said...

i am still waiting for jerry jones to pull off a hershel walker trade of drew. make everyone think he can still play and get a bunch of picks in return. maybe the texans will be interested. he might end up with less sacks than david carr one day.

Isiah Thomas said...

Philly fans will always need something or someone to be the object of their hatred and unfulfilled dreams and wishes.

If you want it to be Snyder and the Skins so be it.

Until the scoreboard reads something other than Skins 3 Iggles 0 all I hear is the Charlie Brown's teacher voice. Mah-muh-muh-maaah-muuuh maaah-muuuh.

Los said...

Enjoy living in the past Isaiah.

ebntx - Jimmy Johnson was a genius for pulling that trade off with the Vikings - it totally transformed them to a dynasty ... unfortunately.

ebntx said...

instead i will have to deal with the fact that jones will probably trade away all the d to get mrs. quinn, md. after all this is the man who made quincy carter a high pick.

Isiah Thomas said...

keep clinging to false hopes with Philly Los.

ebntx said...

btw i am listening to the #4 podcast and wondering when you guys will do a live webcam broadcast during a iggles game. i am sure if will entertaining to see and hear your disgust if they blow another game. come on give in to the masses.

Los said...

What false hopes, Isaiah? I admit the Birds aren't good enough?

By the way, it's 2006 now.

Los said...

eb - I've toyed with the idea of getting an omnidirectional microphone, and just record us watching sports games. A camera would make it more interesting.

El Padrino said...

carson daly has a youtube type show... WTF?

ebntx said...

you guys could also have a phone in listener line. could be fun.

anonymous said...

false hope, based on this current moment, would be investing time in the Redskins.

Skins - need years, although the D is getting there.

Eagles - were/are near "there", but have proved they cant get it done.

so we have a team of potential has beens, and a team of never wills. take your pick.

this is like arguing over which retard you and your buddy wanna nail.

"dude, i'll take the one with one eye that slobbers. you get the one with a limp and missing teeth."

we're all winners!

temwr said...

And the Bucs have won a super bowl more recently than both.

And just kicked a 62 yarder for a win.

Go Bucs.

Los said...

EB - that might be an arduous task, because people would need to know exactly when we were taping in order to call in, and then we'd probably need to invest in some other stuff so that we can hear the call on the podcast.

IAM - You tied that up well. I appreciate it, I think.

ebntx said...

and it only took a simms ruptured spleen to get it. go bucs.

Los said...

That one hurt, Tem.

Let's talk baseball. I can't wait to hear Joe Buck and Tim McCarver's banter tonight ...

temwr said...

So next year does Chris Simms:

a) sign with Gints as back-up

b) sign with Raiders

c) sign with Phins

d) other

e) coming back to the Bucs is not an option. Gruden already knows I bought myself a Gradkowski jersey and I need to reap the benefits of Bruce and his 4.0 yds per attempt.

ebntx said...

ok on baseball, so what do the tigs have on schedule tonight? corked bats?

anonymous said...

how soon into the broadcast until we get a shot of Carpenter or Robertson's hand?

ebntx said...

i say raiders, his incompetence fits nicely there. at least his passes go forward.

Isiah Thomas said...

iam I'd go for the retard with-out teeth, gotta think a gum down wouldn't be too bad.

Mike James Interview

This is awesome.

temwr said...

First inning at least 4 shots a piece of each pitchers hands.

Mid-game interview Buck slobs on Tony L's knob for stopping the Tigers from cheating and tells him he handled it like a professional.

Other mid-game interview, Jimmy L. talks about nothing inparticular and you can tell he smells like Camel non filters.

El Padrino said...

under / over 3 pitches

that fox shows either Robertson's or Carpenter's hand while pitching.

Most likely Caprenter's because he's up first.

Spaceman Spiff said...

whats the over/under on years left in roethlisbergers career

temwr said...

As a solid starter? hmm, 4?

In the league? 6?

temwr said...

That's a tough one.

anonymous said...

best mike james quote..

"I'm passionate. I work hard. I try not to hate, because I hate hard."

The Rev said...

I go out to lunch, and Los and Zeke get into a slap fight. I love it.

First of all, I never booed the McNabb pick. I was really happy with that pick. I thought McNabb was the man that year and I wanted him. But... at the time I would have been really happy with Ricky Williams too. I'm sure I would have been just as happy trading for the Saints entire draft. Hindsight being 20/20, I'm glad they got #5.

The people who booed were a group of fans sent up by a local radio station who were pro Ricky Williams. I don't think they represented the entire fan base. At the time, I think we were all torn 50/50 as to who we wanted. Mayor Ed Rendell coming out publicly and saying he wanted Ricky Williams fanned the flame at the time.

Me... I hate getting into arguments defending Philly as a sports town. Because I know they can shut our ass up with the whole bagel in the Super Bowl titles argument. It fuckin hurts!

The Rev said...

For the record... Los and I podcasting during an Eagles game is interesting, however we usually watch the games at a local bar and it would be tough setting up the equipment at the bar.

This past week would have been interesting. You would have heard me storm out of the bar right after the 62 yard field goal went through.

Lions fans are the guys who know that their girl is bangin some other dude, yet they dont have the balls to do anything about it. they dont even talk big. they just accept it. they keep buying fur coats to keep the girl around, but shes riding pony elsewhere.

youre a pathetic loser and a failure at life if youre a Lions fan. i hope that organziation burns a fiery death.

its amazing after all these years to finally watch real football games. thank you Sunday Ticket.

anonymous said...

my comment is in response to the 'deleted' thing about teams and fans.. i swear it wouldve made sense....

kodiac130 said...

so who are the worst fans in football? iam, you are right, Lions fans are completely apathetic. Browns fans are generally unstable and insane. Seahawk fans are typically little whiny bitches. Packers fans act like their shit doesn't stink. Personally, I loathe Patriots fans the most (but that's probably out of jealousy mostly, since my team has never won a Super Bowl)

ebntx said...

who is your team kodiac?

kodiac130 said...

unfortunately, it's the Minnesota Vikings. Always good enough to get fans hopes up and then crush their spirits....kinda like the Eagles.

temwr said...

Worst fans are 49ers fans. There were like a billion of them in the 1990s and they'd talk shit all the time and now, nothing, they are all gone. Damn fair weather fans.

in a sick and twisted way, I almost envy Lions fans....at least they know at the beginning of each season that they are going to be terrible.

kodiac130 said...

good call on 49ers fans, strangely enough, I don't think I have ever met one.

temwr said...

How about best fans?

Steelers fans seem to always be fans no matter how their team is doing and aren't too annoying.

Of course I am biased to Bucs fans as well.

If you can find a Cardinals fan you can always thank them for taking it all in stride.

The Rev said...

"Always good enough to get fans hopes up and then crush their spirits....kinda like the Eagles."

I remember your Vikings once went 15-1, then lost in the playoffs with a former Eagles QB at the helm. That takes the cake right there. You know pain.

At least the Twins have won a couple of recent World Series.

And you did have Jesse Ventura as a governor. That ruled.

jugdish said...

RE: TO

I'd say he is a top 5 receiver in the league talent wise...but he takes away more from a team than he adds to it. Bottom line...he is not worth the headaches he causes.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Let me piss everyone off as I was born into Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox fandom. 80's were great for NBA, 90's kind of sucked as a whole, 00's have been excellent for NFL and MLB.

Worst football fans? Or fans that have it the worst? I might vote Cardinals fans for both. With fans who are whiney or unreasonably cocky at least they show some passion. I have not met a ton of Cardinals fans, maybe Zeke can give a better analysis, but the ones I have met are as mediocre as their team. At least they have a new stadium though.

anonymous said...

well i cant necessarily say that the fans are bad, because damnit if they dont keep selling out that stadium, and buying into the BS that the lions put out every year. i saw the light though... if i was still following the lions when im 30 or 50 yrs old, then i deserved to be shot.

detroit fans will stick with their teams, it's just that this management is worthless, and until the fans stop going.. they will keep on putting out a shit product.

they are the nerd who's getting played by the cheerleader.

temwr said...

I was born into 0 fandom. My dad hates sports.

So now I am a Nets, Bucs, White Sox, Penguins fan.

ebntx said...

are there any true arizona fans? arent most people in phoenix transplants kind of like the rev mentioned about tampa?

jugdish said...

I was born into Chicago sports...got to see a Bears Super Bowl as a kid, 6 Bulls titles in the 90s and a White Sox World Series last year (went to game 3)...so I can't complain at all.

kodiac130 said...

Yeah, 1998 still haunts me; worst of all I was a sophmore at UW Madison watching the game with about a hundred Packers fans.
Still though, the Anderson miss was not as painful as having to endure 4 years of Ventura.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Ho-lee Shit!! how can you say Steeler fans aren't annoying!!!??? The MOST annoying fans ARE Steeler fans. One For The Thumb, Baby!! So what. What have you done for me LATELY?

temwr said...

They are only annoying if you are a Browns or Bengals fan.

They are OK enough.

I mean as far as football fans go they aren't too annoying. Again this is like picking which retard you want to nail.

The Rev said...

"picking which retard you want to nail"

I don't know about you guys, but I'm going for the female one, personally.

temwr said...

We had that analogy earlier, I'm just referencing that one. In that analogy they were both female.

JFreak said...

I agree with Meiz, worst fans are Steelers fans. They think they are God's gift to Earth.

And los, you should root for Ohio State, if for no other reason than Isiah likes Michigan.

anonymous said...

yeah, both female.

although Rev, your 'dancing' brings u into question yet again...

as a chappelle episode once told us "a mouth's a mouth".

Martin VanNostrand said...

Yeah then we can have a Zeke vs. Los II on pay-per-view

THE CHAMP. said...

Kodiac,

My dad was working with Cris Carter's brother in 1998. I thought he was going to kill everyone in the room when that FG missed. that was hard.

The Lions are just bad. It's hard to be a fan when you have never been good in my lifetime. They went to the playoffs once or twice, but even then it just seemed like everyone sucked worse. All we've ever really had in Detroit is the Red Wings and the Pistons.

THE CHAMP. said...

well and now the tigers

Los said...

I'm gonna root for a good game between Michigan and the Buckeyes ... there are plenty of other reasons to hate Isaiah.

THE CHAMP. said...

I'm going to put Green Bay fans at the top of the list. They basically think Lambeu was were football started. You can't say anything bad about Favre or you get thrown into one of those CIA prisons and if you don't cook beer brats on sunday you're the retarted girl getting banged by the lions fans.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Sorry amigo's I don't know how to do links on here but check out this ish outside of Busch. http://www.bostondirtdogs.com/
I love it when this type of gimmick backfires on the stadium/team offering you to buy a piece of their property.

ebntx said...

you gotta root for umich los. always root for the #1 team to lose unless it is your team.

Isiah Thomas said...

hey I love petty arguments, I'm always ready.

Isiah Thomas said...

re: retards....

Rev of course they were both female, wtf?

anonymous said...

Reverend = pastor = church leader = priest = into handicapped boys?

not sayin, im just sayin

Isiah Thomas said...

re: Phx fans...

unlike LA were I only met a handful of people who were born and raised there, PHX has quite a few native...wait for it.........Phoenicians.

As for them being Cards fans, the Cards have been here for less than 20 yrs. They have some fans and sold out the first year of their stadium, basically on empty promises from the team. Now that they see the light again it will be interesting to see what happens next season.

Peter King guy in my office is a Cards fan and last week he pretty much said they had a 0% chance of winning at Oakland. And no one was surprised they gacked it up to the Bears either.

Worst? Eh, most apathetic, yes.

Isiah Thomas said...

iam....I like the way you thought out the Rev there.

Isiah Thomas said...

hey I love haters as much as the next guy, but Los is just bitter. I pray you don't have a dog bc I know you'll kick the shit out of it tonight after your 5th scotch.

whocares said...

Did I accidentally log on to Shanoff's blog?

Who's the WORST fan base and WHY?

I want to know, tell me in my comments section!!!!!!!!!

Los said...

I'm not bitter, Zeke. Just can't understand how you can defend Snyder to the death, even when .... you know what, we've already discussed this enough.

I also enjoy the fact that you can live so happily in the past.

Los said...

Oh, and I'm not really a scotch guy.

temwr said...

I'd say if they number 1 team is playing the number 2 team you should root for number 1 unless number 2 is your team. This sounds like a poop joke...anyway.

Number 2 will fall farther in the rankings than number 1 will with a loss, that might help your team leapfrog them.

Take a Texas fan for instance. If Mich beats OSU, does OSU fall below a team it beat on the road earlier in the season? Hmm, maybe. If Michigan loses, does Michigan fall below a team OSU beat earlier in the season, but has played well since? Yes they do.

So in conclusion. Unless you are a Michigan fan you should root for OSU.

temwr said...

Touche whocares...touche.

Whocares just burned the shit out of all of us. I feel so ashamed now.

jugdish said...

I think if you want to debate Snyder and live in the past, compare the success of the franchises during Snyder's tenure. If not...go back to the beginning of the NFL, not just the Super Bowl era.

I also think that they should have let Sammy Sosa off the hook for a corked bat if they allow poop on a pitcher's hand. That story stinks worse than The Gambler's hand!

Isiah Thomas said...

Sports Reporters style....final comments on this....

I like Dan Snyder. Get over it.

3 Superbowls to Zero pretty much sums it up.

As an Eagles fan you can't relive the glory days nor toast the future - deal with it. As a Skins fan at least I got some hardware to celebrate.

El Padrino said...

Mets, Giants, Knicks, Rangers
Michigan Wolverines.

So im not a yankee fan and I dont say that sing that ridiculous
J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS chant.

I'm U of M fan since I was a kid. Just took a liking to them from a younr age. Wanted to go to school there but that never panned out.

Los said...

good call judgish - that way we Lions and Eagles fans actually can talk about championships ... ah, the past!!!

I predict, Pujols will break his bat, and the umps will find he corked it with Barry Bonds.

Isiah Thomas said...

but he didn't deny kicking the dog.

"DAMN YOU POOCHIE"

Los said...

Actually, I don't have a dog. I do have some fish, though - should I kick those?

The Rev said...

"Reverend = pastor = church leader = priest = into handicapped boys?"

Actually, no.

In some religions, reverends can marry. So they get to have contact with women.

And how many sex scandals did those televangelists get into in the 80's? Jim Bakker? Jimmy Swaggart?

So it goes... reverend = married = own ministry = televangelist = into female whores

That's a much better progression right there.

temwr said...

Put the fish in your tequilla.

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev, there's wayyyyyy too many priest that diddle'd young boy stories than hetero rev's that got married.

ToddPacker said...

EP

Tebow for Heisman hype starts next year. I would love it if big Tim could join the ranks with spurrier and wuerffel.

Not referring the UF/UGA game as the world’s largest cocktail party was not an ESPN/CBS thing. The presidents of both universities asked that it not be referred to that and the networks are going to comply. It’s kind of a weak argument. Do they think that if it’s not called that it will curb the amount of alcohol consumed? Dumb Logic.

Isiah Thomas said...

Los I can go all day with this.

El Padrino said...

LA has to be the worst fan base
they dont pay attention to anything but the Lakers.

Isiah Thomas said...

Los is def putting Clorox into the fishbowl tonight.

Los said...

But you can't because you have to study for your middle school mid-terms, don't you?

temwr said...

But rev, we know precious little about the church that ordained you.

Perhaps you will be the 1st rev. from that church to get into some scandal.

You can set the sex scandal bar for your church. Is it going to be retarded whores? fat co-workers? hot chicks? married famous ladies? little boys? The rev gets to decide.

temwr said...

It's not the world's largest cocktail party, so now the kids have to drink more. I'd say 10,000 more kegs should make it the world's largest.

jugdish said...

Who started the "worst sports fans" convo anyways? I think they should have to change their name to "Douche Shanoff" for tomorrow's blog.

Isiah Thomas said...

*crickets* los

Los said...

You've had enough them yourself today.

The Rev said...

Los is not into scotch... but he is into Jagermeister.

Los does not own a dog... but he can drop kick fish off his back deck.

Of course, he could always kick a neighbor's dog. I'm sure he would enjoy that. Los hates some of his neighbors.

temwr said...

hmm I threw out best sports fan thing. I don't think I threw out the worst sports fan thing.

Throwing out the best sports fan thing deserves whatever punishment I get. It was inexcusable.

Sincerely,
Douche Shanoff

Isiah Thomas said...

whatever drink it is he needs to disguise the stink of failure....

The Rev said...

Kodiac started the worst fans question.

The Rev said...

At the Universal Life Church, you can get ordained online in seconds. They claim to have 20,000,000 ministers worldwide, so I'm sure I wouldn't be the first.

However, if I had to choose my scandal, famous hot women sounds pretty sweet.

Los said...

This coming from a fan of Daniel Snyder's GM moves.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Is that the same smell that hits you when you fly into Baltimore?

ebntx said...

btw, having a garage sale of my ffl team, starting with myself as the manager. (fucking leftwich) after my team stunk it up this weekend everything must go.

temwr said...

Retarded whores would get you an article on cnn.com for sure.

The headline would be:
ULC Reverend caught with 2 retarded whores
