Weekend Recap

MLB:

THE YANKEES ARE DEAD. Another post season collapse. As a Yankee hater its great to see them go down. Big up to Detroit. Great celebration. Watching the players celebrate with the fans was pretty sweet. A’s vs Detroit in the ALCS.

Joe Torre may be out, to be potentially replaced by Sweet Lou Pinella.

Cards/Mets in the NLCS. I got nothing here since I didn’t watch one out of either NLDS’s.

NASCAR

Brian Vickers crashes JJ and Lil’ E to take home his first victory. After #24 crashed out I took a nap.

Giant Nicoli Valuev beat down Monte Barret to retain his title. Dude is large. Big. But he doesn’t have a ton of power for a giant. Diego Corrales loses a split decision to Joel Casamayor. I'm a Chico fan, he didn't look all that good and hinted at retirement after the fight.

CFB

The biggest surprise is Auburn getting ball dipped at home by Arkansas. Take that Tommy Tuberville. Shut the hell up.

SC survives Washington, they’re not looking too good.

Tennessee beats the hell out of GA.

Florida takes out LSU.

Personally I think the SEC is overrated.

NFL

The Bears continue to roll. Look at their schedule, it is frighteningly weak. 16-0? You never know.

Indy is a shaky 5-0. Barely beating Tennessee. F U Peyton and Co.

Matt Leinart throws 2 early TD’s and overall played pretty well. A late pick didn’t help matters. Larry Johnson takes a screen pass a long ways then gets his head twisted around Exorcist style. I was watching the game and he went down in a heap and didn’t move. I thought he was dead.

Philly takes out Dallas. Must feel good for them. Personally, I had TO in a money FFL, other than that IDGAF really. I’m sure the good Rev has some opinions though.

I’m out.

LITO SHEPPARD, BITCHES!!!

YYYYYEEEEEOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!

The Rev said...

Drove back from Boston today. I stopped at a Chili's in New London, CT to watch the game. I scared everyone in the bar with my Hugh Douglas jersey on, and intimidated the hell out of the Cowboys fans who all left before the game was over. Pussies!

There are no real Cowboys fans in the Northeast US. I'm convinced of that.

Drew Bledsoe is my second favortie QB in the NFL right now, because he helps the Eagles win games just as much as Donovan McNabb does.

No, the Eagles were not perfect today. In fact, they scared the living hell out of me. But you gotta give it to them. Donovan McNabb was awesome. The defense harassed Bledsoe into bad decisions. And the secondary came up absolutely huge!

And TO can officially fuck off!

I am jacked up beyond belief right now.

JFreak said...

Two teams I hate got destroyed this weekend. Thank you Tigers and Eagles.

thejaywhite said...

TO did not play that well..but he was not helped out at all by bledsoe constantly throwing over his head or at his feet or behind him. Bledsoe took what about 10+ sacks and threw such horrible picks. If any other QB is playing that game Dallas wins. so many times there was a screen pass open for a 10+ yard gain but bledsoe would force the ball to a triple teamed reciever or take the sack.

He's just awful.

anonymous said...

this weekend was the ultimate battles of good and evil... and the good overwhelmingly won. (well, if ND woulda lost, that woulda been icing on the cake).

tigers bitch slap, u of mich. beat state, TO lost.

the atmosphere surrounding the Tigers is something like ive never seen before.. just amazing.

thejaywhite said...

and I cant believe theyre gonna fire TORRE..with lou...Lou is one of the worst managers of the last 15 years. He couldnt get anything out of those Seattle teams and he couldnt do anything in tampa. He also only won one title with a super stacked reds team. If anyone could fuck up the yankees dynasty its him.

What the yanks should do instead of firing torre is go make some trades and get starting pitching that is 28 years old.

temwr said...

And Bruce Gradkowski doesn't suck.

Firing Torre seems like a good move to me. They need some new blood in there to shake things up. In fact like tjw says, fire the pitching staff and get people who aren't over 40.

Replacing Torre with Lou seems dumb. It's a good move for Lou though, he hates young players and won't see any of them as the Yankees manager. If this all shakes out how it sounds like it will.

temwr said...

And I thought I was a goner in the suicide pool, but the stupid colts pulled it out.

A hint for all you gamblers: do not bet on the team I take in a suicide pool. They never play well.

The Rev said...

Firing Joe Torre is a mistake, plain and simple!

It's a mistake I would love to see the Yankees make.

The Rev said...

Fuck the Yankees, fuck the Cowboys, fuck TO...

FUCK EM ALL I SAY!

ToddPacker said...

First off, I respectfully disagree with Zeke, about the SEC being overrated. The fact that teams like Arkansas can beat the number two team in the country, like Auburn shows the conference depth. I know it’s a no win and often silly situation when trying to argue which conference is better (football or basketball), but I’m staying biased and sticking with the SEC as the best football conference.

Gators beat LSU.
Mets sweep.
Yanks lose.

Great weekend.

Rev-
Lito is awesome. He was a god a UF, especially on punt returns. I’ve definitely taken part in many a “LI-TO, LI-TO” chant.

temwr said...

I think firing him is a good move. The Yankees are too complacent. The Boss needs to put some fear into them. It took Torre 160+ games to figure out that batting A-Rod 4th wasn't too wise. He needed to go.

temwr said...

**He needs to go. They haven't fired him yet.

The Rev said...

I like Lito too. Though there are times he has been overshadowed by Sheldon Brown.

Brown is the better of the two corners overall. Sheldon Brown is consistent and solid. But Lito is more of a big play guy. When Lito gets a pick, he has a chance to take it home from anywhere on the field. And that is an exciting thing to watch when it happens, as we saw yesterday.

And, it gives us all a chance to sing the Boz Scaggs song when he does something...

LITO... WHOAOAOAH!

El Padrino said...

Torre has done nothing but win since 1996. Stenbrenner is a fool if he fires hime but what do i care, i got to get ready for a game 1 matchup with poo-holes.

Spiff good call on the redskins
hyde showed up instead of jeckyll
gibbs loves the meadowlands

i love columbus day
home and groggy, no work

The Rev said...

Eagles win yesterday... day off today... Eric Clapton concert tonight...

Life is good!

Eric said...

I don't think firing Torre is the answer at all, they definitely need something to happen though. They're totally stagnant. What they need to completely overhaul the pitching staff. If the let Mussina leave in free agency and somehow tricked Johnson into retiring that would be $35 mil. in payroll. A team could easily get at least 4 or 5 quality pitchers (starters and relievers) with that money.

El Padrino said...

Zito
8 years, 99 Million

he'll never do it
well i shouldnt say never but i think he hates the yankees

anonymous said...

the Yanks pitching is obviously where the problems lie.. seriously, how did they win that many games? they got Wang, and then NOTHIN.

yeah, thats Torre's fault. fire him anyways, just so this will be the second Detroit team to ROCK a dynasty (goodbye 2004 Lakers, goodbye 2006 Yankees).

detroit what!

anonymous said...

el pad, if Damon can go to the Yanks, i wouldnt put it past anyone.

it's all about that dollar.

El Padrino said...

true but for some reason i think if zito is coming to ny it's too the other team...
Peterson, the coach
and we've tried to get him numerous times but fucking billy beane is a kunt and wanted Heilman and Milledge so we said stick it up your ass he aint that good

temwr said...

Counting this year the Yanks are 0 for the last 6. When you have the highest payroll in the league you need to win at least once every 3 or 4 years, minimum. Torre isn't getting the job done. He should be fired. And he is now 0 for the last 3 in even making the WS.

Torre needs fired and the pitching staff needs replaced.

temwr said...

I hate Columbus day, I am at work.

The Rev said...

I had to burn a vacation day to take a day off today.

temwr said...

Can't take today off, Oct. 15th is a big day for us lazy accountant type people. I have lots of work to do.

Isiah Thomas said...

the Yanks "dynasty" is already fucked up....they haven't won it all in what 6 years now?

Isiah Thomas said...

Arkansas Ball Dips Auburn (at Auburn); SC Ball Dipped Arkansas at Arkansas....

Granted SC doesn't look good now and will go down soon.

anonymous said...

today's columbus day? hmm, who knew..

Isiah Thomas said...

The Yanks should trade A-Rod to the Angels for Ervin Santana and another prospect. Then sign Zito. Instant upgrades.

jugdish said...

Torre doesn't need to be fired...obviously its not about how much money you spend. Yeah the Yanks make the playoffs every year, and on paper they should dominate...but there are a lot of intangibles you don't get with a team full of all stars that you can have on a team like the Marlins, who's payroll is only about 14 million.

thejaywhite said...

milledge isnt that good...Im glad the A's didnt make that trade.

zito would go to the yanks for money who woudlnt.I see him goin dodgers though hes a west coast boy

moving Arod out of the 4 spot was a good move but he should have went up to the 2 or 3..not down..give him some protection thats not named posada or canu

dont punish him for struggling..arod is a metrosexual who needs to be loved...im sure hes been down ever since the day he moved to NYY and had to leave SS behind for 3B..u know he didnt like that.

thejaywhite said...

the rumor is Arod to A's for harden and croz and yanks pick up salary...texas is already picking up a shitload of Arods salary so if yanks pick up more this could mean the A's would be paying as little as 8-10mil of his contract per year.

Spaceman Spiff said...

Brunell and Bledsoe are complete opposites, one forces things and throws bad bad picks, the other forces nothing and holds back the O. Both occasionally play well enough to win. Polar opposites that both suck

temwr said...

If you have the highest payroll in the league and go 0 for 6 then you need to go.

Trading A-Rod for pitching would do wonders for the Yankees, most notably on the team chemistry side. That trade with the As seems good, although you never know how someone will perform as a Yankee.

ebntx said...

momma said, lito sheppard is the devil

Spaceman Spiff said...

If Zito goes to the NL, he's good for 20 wins

anonymous said...

Rev, someone needs to address this. unacceptable.

temwr said...

Ben Roeth. must think he is Brett Favre out there. He just heaves the ball up there sometimes and must be thinking "I'm Big Ben, I survived a motorcycle crash, I am indestructible." while the other team intercepts his shitty throw.

Spaceman Spiff said...

steelers making me happy this year

Los said...

Cowboys lose, T.O. plays like crap and then cries like a little baby, and the Yankees lose ... if only Notre Dame lost, it would've been the perfect weekend.

The Rev said...

That hat would look great with this outfit...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I love how bad the Satin Curtain is.

anonymous said...

who doesnt love denim!?

and a bon jovi album.

and this is officially the start of the end in Dallas. your season will steadily go downhill from here.. The Mouth will start running, and the team will start crumbling.

will we ever see the day that nobody wants to sign TO at all? i hope so...

temwr said...

Dallas will not be his last stop.

He will be playing for the Raiders next year and they will still suck and he will still be a loudmouth troublemaker, but nobody will care.

anonymous said...

once nobody cares, then hopefully he'll REALLY OD.

Stiggy said...

TO is such a fucking dick that if fell off the face of the Earth today nobody would give a rat's ass.

That's just my humble opinion.

anonymous said...

i'll accept that.

temwr said...

He agent and publicist might care.

And I am sure McNabb would issue a statement saying that he was saddened to hear that TO fell off the face of the Earth and was floating around in space.

Stiggy said...

Well, apart from those three people....

jugdish said...

McNabb wouldn't issue a statement, he'd just send TO a text message.

Peter King's nickname for the naked Lions coach...Joe "Nude Rockne'' Cullen. I thought that was pretty funny.

Spaceman Spiff said...

cliff floyd possibly out for rest of playoffs, i wonder whos going down next for the mets.

temwr said...

RE: King

Two things from his article.

1) He tears into D. Sanders. I don't think he likes Neon Deion much.

2) He attributes the saying "Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every once in a while.''to Bill Parcells, like Parcells was the first person to ever say that. Umm, yeah, that saying, or a variation has been around for like 200 yrs.

Spaceman Spiff said...

king likes the feeling of cowboys scrotum tickling his esophagus

Stiggy said...

spaceman,
you make me laugh. very funny comment.

temwr said...

King definitely has Parcell's cell number, office number, house number, second house number, and favorite kind of condom memorized.

jugdish said...

King sounds like he talks to all these guys all of the time. Calls them at home or whatever. I wonder how true that is.

anonymous said...

im not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but...

GO TIGERS!!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm definitely a DJ Gallo fan. His shit is hilarious. The Lions pulling off a come-from-ahead loss. classic.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

So you have a month, Bears. Football fans expect better. And maybe get Kyle Orton started on this right away. Kyle Orton and Jack Daniel's could be the greatest songwriting duo since Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Another Gallo Classic

Isiah Thomas said...

the real capper to this weekend would be if something bad happened to Duke. Anyone?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

uhh... I had David Noel sign my Bucks banner "Duke Sucks".

JFreak said...

So watching the Monday Night game, and we had another classic exchange between TK and JT.

Joe starts explaining a hard count, gives and example and takes like 20 seconds to wax poetic about it.

Tony responds by saying thanks Joe, later you can tell us what offsides and 2 point conversations mean.

Joe seemed really offended. Very enjoyable.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

In case anyone was still curious...



An ombudsman is an official, usually (but not always) appointed by the government or by parliament, who is charged with representing the interests of the public by investigating and addressing complaints reported by individual citizens. In some jurisdictions, the Ombudsman is referred to, at least officially, as the 'Parliamentary Commissioner' (e.g., the West Australian state Ombudsman). The word ombudsman and its specific meaning has since been adopted in to English as well as other languages, and ombudsmen have been instituted by other governments and organizations such as the European Union.

An ombudsman need not be appointed by government; they may work for a corporation, a newspaper, an NGO, or even for the general public.

JT killing TK happens within 4 months.

JFreak said...

why does this game suck.

temwr said...

I have now changed my business cards to say Ombudsman. I wrote it in pencil on them.

Well at least C. McCallister didn't have a big game. In my money FF league, which I know everyone is wildly interested in, I had a 7.5 point lead and the other guy had CM still to go.

Right now would anyone say I am stupid for saying the Bears win the Super Bowl by at least 21 points? I don't think you can argue too much with someone who takes that stance.
