.......I've never met a nice South African

By now we now you don't come here to get your sports news or get amazing prose. I get this. I won't bore you with a weekend sports recap, as quite frankly its a waste of everyone's time.

I'll give you these quick hits, puff puff give style:

1) Tiger - can't git-r done. Zach who? wins.
2) Chico Coralles jumps up 2 weight classes and gets pummelled. As one of my fav fighters its tough to see him like this. I still don't think he's recovered from the first Castillo fight. Here's round 10 of that fight.
3) Baseball.....its still too early to get excited.

I don't want to fuck up the rotation so I'm moving on, check out the wwl if you want more.

The "begining of the end" for the Soprano's. They started a couple interesting potential plots - let's see where they end up. I think the lake house stuff was a little drawn out. I haven't seen Entourage yet so I'll reserve comment.

Anyway, onto what I wanted to talk about - political correctness. I'm sick of it. Its come to the forefront in the sports world in the last few weeks, first with Michael Ray Richards comments about Jews, then Imus's comments about Rutgers women's hoops team.

There was a pretty good uproar about Richards and how he was being anti-semitic. Personally I didn't think his comments were inflammatory, but I'm not jewish so maybe they were. David Stern, NBA Commissioner, and a jew, came to Richards defense and said the comments weren't bad. This fact was lost on the national media, as was the fact that Richards was once married to a jewish woman.

Imus - as EP pointed out Friday, called Rutgers women's team a bunch of "nappy headed ho's". Alright maybe this isn't the best thing to say on a nationally syndicated show, but its not like he dropped a "n bomb".

I'm tired of the media being irresponsible with shit like this. I'm tired of the "the sky if falling!" type reaction from the national media when someone speaks their mind. Its like swearing on tv or from ath-a-leets. When Tiger starts dropping 4 letter words the "oh my god he's cursing!" reactions sicken me. Like people don't do this every single day, or kids don't hear this in their everyday lives at school.

America needs to open its eyes and quit acting like pussies. I followed a link from the SG last week to some ipod lists of canadian ath-a-leets. I think the word "shit" was printed. My first thought was, "no way this would fly in the US". It's sad. We have all these freedoms and sometimes we act like we're still in Puritan times. Get with it people.

To roll it back up to the title of this post "I've never met a nice South African" - this is the title of a song from a group called "Spitting Image" from the 80's. Google/wiki them to get more info. Basically they were a comedy group/tv show in England that spoofed shit. This song actually made fun of white south Africans but you wouldn't know it if you didn't have the background info. Anyway, this vid-ye-o is a bit dated but its funny to me and its my post. (SFW)

Inexpensive, year-round golf!

And no humidity!

Going to bed as a champion...Suck it, Packer.

Beth82678 said...

What a nice way to be welcomed back to Atlanta - the Braves in 1st place after totally kicking some Philly & Met ass, and the Thrashers as Division Champs and ready to also beat up on a NY team. :-)

If you pretend Atlanta doesn't have a basketball team, which isn't too far from the truth, it's a good time to be an Atlanta fan. (Of course I realize that could all change in a week...)

El Padrino said...

kicked Mets ass?

funny

El Padrino said...

nice post zeke, couldnt agree more

Beth82678 said...

ElP, just let me enjoy the Braves' stay in 1st place while I can. :-)

But you have to admit, being 5-1 after starting off with your 2 biggest division rivals is pretty good.

El Padrino said...

good start for both teams bet
i anticiapate a close race this year with the braves, the bullpen is alot better

i curse aaron heilman this am...

why not us, 1-5 and starting a three game set with the Mets (home opener)

why not us?

hahahahhahahhahahahhaa

El Padrino said...

if the rangers beat the trashers, your going to hear it

El Padrino said...

how was the lesbo cruise?

Beth82678 said...

Lots of flannel shirts. Rosie t-shirts and short hairstyles, but still fun. :-)

Beth82678 said...

Should be a good Thashers-Rangers series for sure. Atlanta is slowly getting interested in the Thrashers but I think it'll take a series win to really get everyone's attention.

I was at the game last Saturday night (after they'd clinched) and am working on tickets to next Saturday's game so we'll see!

El Padrino said...

i'm also trying to get tickets for game 3 or 4

the things ranger fans chant is very interesting

El Padrino said...

we should bet

your paternal parent said...

sup my niggaz

Beth82678 said...

Bets are good, as long as my winning doesn't get me a used jersey. (Sorry Rev.)

Maybe when I win instead of an Escobar pic you use your real pic for a week. I'm curious to see what many of the LOV regulars really look like.

ToddPacker said...

mets should have taken 2 out of 3 from the braves... heilman crapped the bed

Beth82678 said...

YPP taking Zeke's post to heart with his greeting.

Beth82678 said...

TP, now you're falling into the Isiah "should have" way of thinking for sports???

Beth82678 said...

And TP, how bad are the locals criticizing the Lightening for their total choke job on Friday night?

ToddPacker said...

locked out of blogger yesterday and this AM.... had to create a google account

Beth82678 said...

I didn't see their game but from the score it sounds like they didn't even show up for it, with the division title on the line too. And then Saturday they took the 2-0 lead but let it slip away. I can't imagine you're feeling too good about the playoffs right now.

ToddPacker said...

"And TP, how bad are the locals criticizing the Lightening for their total choke job on Friday night"


they lost 7-2.... they were never in the game

ToddPacker said...

they were losing 4-0 after the 1st

Beth82678 said...

That's my point though, it was basically a playoff game for them and they didn't even show up.

El Padrino said...

beth if NY loses to ATL I'll send you :

DIAB

Beth82678 said...

Well at least the shipping won't cost you much for such a small package. :-)

your paternal parent said...

"Here's what I've learned: that you can't make fun of everybody, because some people don't deserve it," (Imus) said on his nationally syndicated radio show Monday morning.


seem thats whats wrong.. everybody DOES deserve it.

El Padrino said...

it was the Imus thing, too lazy to link again

he is goin pn Sharpton's radio show today

big al wants him fired

El Padrino said...

ToddPacker said...

El Padrino said...

tp no

El Padrino said...

yo ypp that ferrel link : you need to be in this movie

get down thier and work

ben said...

Ok, i know that this isn't the fantasy blog, but the baseball standings are weird. If I wanted to play fantasy hockey I would have.

El Padrino said...

i could go for some mc nuggets

temwr said...

go pirates.

Steve said...

I'm waaaaaaayyyyy behind but I finally saw Borat this weekend.

High Comedy

ben said...

I also saw borat for the first time this weekend. The wife was not impressed.

Steve said...

Yea ben I could see the wife not liking that movie.

Did she make it though it? I so then tell her LOV says Kudos.

El Padrino said...

most wives dont like that type of movie

El Padrino said...

"this is stupid"

Beth82678 said...

What? Borat's not a chick flick? Who knew...

ben said...

she did make it through the entire movie, and admitted that parts of it were funny...but isn't too excited to see it again.

temwr said...

I still haven't seen Borat.

I haven't seen any movie in like 4 months maybe 6.

temwr said...

Beth how was the cruise?

Spaceman Spiff said...

youre telling me that the man who tried to stick a rubber fist in my ah-noose was a omosexual?

El Padrino said...

As usual Agent Zero does not disapoint

El Padrino said...

my head is pounding

fucking vino

ben said...

did anyone else watch soprano's? An entire show with basically only 4 characters in it, very weak. I'm afraid it's going to suck for like 6 episodes then the final 2 or 3 are going to be balls to the wall.

whocares said...

I saw Borat this weekend for the firt time. I didnt think it was that good. Had some funny parts, but overall kind of sucked.

temwr said...

Ive never seen a single episode of Sopranos.

Now I go to lunch.

your paternal parent said...

my parents thought borat was hilarious. that slightly surprised me.

ferrell movie - im in.

El Padrino said...

Sopranos was decent, they alwyas start a bit slow

we at least got a murder
and dont forget high comedy from bacala

your paternal parent said...

i liked sopranos.. its furthering a story, ah well if its slow.. the lake scenes needed to be slow.. its "drama".

your paternal parent said...

ep, is that the dude in the tanktop? the breastsweat crossed the line.

ben said...

if it's drama it should be on TNT...they know drama

El Padrino said...

yep, that's bobby

ben said...

fat people fighting is always funny

Isiah Thomas said...

woo woo

THIS IS NOT A GAME PEOPLE.

Isiah Thomas said...

right before the fight when Tony started singing "under the boardwalk" was funny. Then when he got up at 4 AM and went into their bedroom and goes "ya beat me fair and square" - was funny.

Isiah Thomas said...

"TP, now you're falling into the Isiah "should have" way of thinking for sports??? "

Don't worry Tables, you can still listen to my sports opinions since I ended up dusting your ass in the tourney pick 'em.

Isiah Thomas said...

I think freak is out but it looks like the "max moves" rule has been shot down.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd like to thank gAy-Rod for a great opening week.

Isiah Thomas said...

Murder in MI

Isiah Thomas said...

anyone hear Zach Johnson's post round comments "oh jesus was with me every step". So apparently, Jebus isn't a Tiger Woods fan.

El Padrino said...

the spic girlfriend aj has is hot

your paternal parent said...

if anybody axes, ive been here the whole time
(just sayin)

your paternal parent said...

AJ looks like a backstreet boy now. and jesus hates black people.

Isiah Thomas said...

They've got to kill off Tony or he has to get locked up by the end of the season right? AJ is too much of a fuck-up to pull the "son takes over" story line.

Isiah Thomas said...

Bush and Jesus hate black people? That's an 0-2 count right there.

Isiah Thomas said...

and this Zach Johnson guy looks like Joakim Phoenix without the hair lip.

And I'd like to start a campaign, anyone named "zack" but spells it "zach" - it must be pronounced zatch.

El Padrino said...

aj aint taking over

my prediction is christopher takes a bullet, tony goes to war with the brooklyn guys who do it and dies in a blaze of glory

bacala takes over

El Padrino said...

and then me and meadow meet and make babies

ben said...

Bobby ain't no boss...I think everyone dies. Tony hates christopher, so he isn't taking over

ben said...

and I think Tony takes out Bobby...he feels unappreciated, plus got his ass beat...respect is a big deal...remember when he beat that huge young guy's ass, just to prove he hadn't gone soft.

El Padrino said...

claveland weather sucks

El Padrino said...

everyone dies?
that's dumb

he doesnt hate christopher he just thinks he's a knucklehead
chrissy is his nephew

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I think Tony has the ability to kill himself.

ben said...

chris called and he hung up on his ass...he's pissed at him

El Padrino said...

that's the worse thing meiz
it'll never happen

ben said...

and tony is only 47? he looks a lot older then that.

El Padrino said...

he's always pissed at him
he was pissed cuz he wasnt at the house when he got out of jail

El Padrino said...

stress

El Padrino said...

AND round of appaluse to CARMELA with the birthday blow job!!!

excellent work

Mills said...

Drake representing this weekend at the Masters!!! We have nothing else. Give us this...

Mills said...

I am in as well for the WF doing 70's b-ball.

Though...I saw Blades of Glory with the wife yesterday. Good moments, but definitely not anchorman good, which wasn't wedding crashers or old school good.

it was nit (talledaga nights) good.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

or Carm's gonna be boss. Brass balls on that woman.

Mills said...

Cards have NOT been good. Thank goodness the bats woke up yesterday to hammer the stros and, suprise, brad lidge (who has officially entered into the by-yun yun kim portion of his career).

that being said...at least it "not us" at 1-6 (or 1-5)

ben said...

Tony's illegitamite son with a russian hooker will be boss.

your paternal parent said...

meadow is a hottie

your paternal parent said...

when tiger was on 16(?).. anybody else think that the sound on their tv went out? (the HD sound channels sometimes glitch)

u didnt even hear a bird chirp or a blade of grass flutter.. that shit was QUIET. i guess the Lawd at least respects Tiger.. it felt like he quieted all of humanity for his putt.

your paternal parent said...

gimme hundo

Steve said...

Bobby is going to jail (cause that was a god awfull hit last night) and Tony will get killed by his sister.


Write It Down!

ben said...

yeah, what was with Bobby dropping the gun? wouldn't you want to hold onto that maybe?

Steve said...

that and the dead dude a piece of his shirt off

Spaceman Spiff said...

old meadow nip slip

Steve said...

*ripped

El Padrino said...

you know there is some bacala boob sweat on that shirt too

DNA

your paternal parent said...

the "dna" comment.. whats the chances that being a furry italian man is gonna back to bite him (a chest hair will be found).

temwr said...

Everytime El Pad writes "bacala" I think he is writing Bacula. Like Scott Bacula.

And then I think the Quantum Leap guy is on Sopranos.

ben said...

yes, but canadian police?? please. I can't see mounties arresting Bobby.

Spaceman Spiff said...

angels/indians gonna play their series on neutral field in meiz's land

temwr said...

I can't take the new ESPN.com ombudsman seriously because it is an old chick.

I just can't do it.

ben said...

Video Devin Hester is fast

Isiah Thomas said...

wow, Ric Bucher actually has a pretty well written piece about the Suns in the Daily Dime. Hollinger should print it out and study it.

your paternal parent said...

lebron... way to CHOKE on your free 'fros at the end of the pistons game.

youll get there, but u aint tha shizit yet, son.

El Padrino said...

bacala and janice have a slave by the way

El Padrino said...

it's been a ongoing thing with his game ending freebies

El Padrino said...

entourage was very solid last night in case anyone watches that

El Padrino said...

zeke high comdey in vh1 with a recap on where are they now

the flavor of love girls

Isiah Thomas said...

Entourage could have used some boobie shots last night.

Isiah Thomas said...

shit I saw a promo for that but didn't see it, I'm sure they'll replay it 100 times in the next week so I'll find it and watch.

your paternal parent said...

love Entourage.

El Padrino said...

that female agent is kind of smokin

El Padrino said...

whoever gets caught whispering gets no chocolate souflee for dessert

ben said...

entourage was good...the broken light on drama's billboard was classic.

ben said...

and remember, you can't say your birthday wish out loud or it won't come true.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

It's a Cinderella story...Can the little engine that could(Shavin The Goat),the 5 seed, take down the mighty Spaceman for the Hoops Championship?

We'll see...

your paternal parent said...

female agent: how many episodes before vince nails her. i'd say at least a kiss by #3, bang by 4.

then he's back to Ari.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

ElP, how's about them K-Nicks on Saturday?

I'd like to thank Eddy Curry for the extra ping-pong balls.

El Padrino said...

knicks season is well over

ben said...

"female agent: how many episodes before vince nails her. i'd say at least a kiss by #3, bang by 4"

they hinted at interest from Drama...I think they'll play the Drama trying to get into her pants card.

ben said...

washington is offering the 6 pick for Asante Samuel? Seriously?

El Padrino said...

she'll get it soon, episode 4 is about right

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Why can't entourage be an hour long show?

Spaceman Spiff said...

hopefully my team can break the glass slipper, then i will have the 1st LOV football and bball trophies in the case

temwr said...

I have never seen Entourage.

I don't even know what it is about.

El Padrino said...

tem's an alien

eats lunch at like 10 am
never seen sopranos/entourage
watches 0 movies
likes WVU

weird

ben said...

I thought we established that Tem is the easter bunny.

ben said...

an easter bunny that plows people's wives.

Steve said...

entourage is quality.

but without Ari, it would suck balls Kod style.

ben said...

The NFL draft isn't getting near the amount of publicity it got last year.

temwr said...

Bucs want to move up to draft CJ. I'm cool with that.

temwr said...

Lunch is at 11:30am not 10am.

temwr said...

And I do not get HBO, thus have never seen any of these shows.

temwr said...

But I do like WVU, I can't argue that.

Isiah Thomas said...

I've always been a fan of the 1PM lunch, makes the 2nd part of the day a breeze.

Isiah Thomas said...

You don't need HBO as much now-a-days with shows and movies going to DVD so quickly.

your paternal parent said...

not willing to pay for hbo = snag the dvds.

ive never had hbo (until 5pm yesterday), but ive become addicted through rentals.

your paternal parent said...

and actually, i downloaded the entire Sopranos first 4 seasons a couple years ago (then eventually bought em).

ben said...

HBO may be gettting cancelled at my house once Sopranos is over

Isiah Thomas said...

What's up with ESPN and the lack of black MLB players? Don't they get times change? I don't see them doing a special on the lack of white NBA players.

your paternal parent said...

im a 2 oh-cee luncher, so therefore, i am now going to get some eats.
word.

your paternal parent said...

i cant wait for stephen a or scoop to blame it on crackers.

kill whitey!

ben said...

"What's up with ESPN and the lack of black MLB players?"

Jackie Robinson 60 year anniversary thing. But I agree with you, Dave Winfield wrote a whole book on it....and then rambled on for like 20 minutes about it with Jim Rome.

ben said...

baseball is a latino sport...

El Padrino said...

black kids dont like baseball, what's the big deal

El Padrino said...

lunch is 1pm, plain and simple

today, leftover lasagna

mmmmmmm

whocares said...

Lunch is 11 a.m.


Pick your poison. Either a long morning or a long afternoon. I prefer a long afternoon.

Nothing like getting in around 8:15, checking e-mail/ LOV for about an hour, shooting the shit with co-workers til about 10 a.m., thirty minutes of work (maybe), then off to lunch...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"HBO may be gettting cancelled at my house once Sopranos is over"

That's my plan. Then, I'm getting the HD box.

El Padrino said...

is the entourage woman agent the same lady as Marv's PO officer in SIN CITY?

if so mark her down as unspeakable el pad style

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Good thing we went with Yahoo for FMLB. ESPN's has been broken since tuesday.

temwr said...

I go with the early lunch because that is when the other people in the office go. They've all been here longer so they makes the rules.

If I end up going by myself I push it to 1pm. This is rare though.

Isiah Thomas said...

I can't wait for Jemele Hill's take on the declining number of black MLBers.

Jemele is the new scoop.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm all about a solo lunch usually, I'll go maybed twice a week with one guy who's alright.

But the group lunch with all the DB's round this place? no thanks.

El Padrino said...

i hate db's

i do lunch alone most of the time, sometimes i stay at my desk and eat right here
just to get in more internet time, and espeacially if it's shitty out, which is normally the case

El Padrino said...

zeke, flip on that mlb tv shit you got

gamecasting my fav's team home opener is very sad

temwr said...

All the people I go with are at least 22 years older than me.

Spaceman Spiff said...

fedex is fucking slow

ben said...

I only hit up the group lunch if somebody else is buying.

Other then that, i see these fuckers enough, lunch is a reprieve

Isiah Thomas said...

Dear Al Sharpton,

Please die, now.

Fondly,

Planet Earth

Isiah Thomas said...

Other then that, i see these fuckers enough, lunch is a reprieve

Alot of people don't get that you see the same assholes every day and every weeks a shitload longer than you see your girl.

"Hey are you going to (insert company event)".

No fuckhead I'm not, I see your sorry ass every day for 8-10 hours.

Now if its something you have to go to, to get brownie points then alright. But some frivolous shit on a weekend? No thanks.

Isiah Thomas said...

EP let me fire this tv up for you. TPS has been hard charge this morning, but if I can create an offensive foul I can swing the mo in my favor.

Isiah Thomas said...

2-2 Top 5th, Mets have some jabroni warming up in their pen.

El Padrino said...

i'll be wating
draw that charge

Isiah Thomas said...

2 on 1 out

El Padrino said...

gamecast still has 2-1, no one on

your paternal parent said...

"All the people I go with are at least 22 years older than me."

i feel your pain. but thats why i munch alone.

"i keep a close watch on this clock of mine.. i keep my lunch eye open all the time.. PB & J is always by my side... cause of DBs, i munch alone.

your paternal parent said...

zeke, make sure the heels arent in the circle..

El Padrino said...

i love cash

Isiah Thomas said...

Phils players have a black "vuc" or "vuk" patch on their jerseys.

Isiah Thomas said...

Rowand walks, bases loaded 2 out

your paternal parent said...

i'll take 'short afternoons' for $200, alex.

Isiah Thomas said...

pitching change.

El Padrino said...

Oh Burgos

your paternal parent said...

Isiah Thomas said...

Burgos in for relief.....inning ending grounder

2-2 Bot 5

Why not us Rev?

Isiah Thomas said...

I think its not till the final week in April.

El Padrino said...

sweet

Isiah Thomas said...

I finally watched the remaining episodes of Black Groundhog Day online. That wasn't a bad show. And the schmo from "Just One of the Guys" was a main character for a few episodes. Dood looks like he's 60 yrs old now.

Isiah Thomas said...

1 out, runner on 3rd, Beltran up

Isiah Thomas said...

they've replayed Lo Duca's ground out 17 times now....

ToddPacker said...

solo lunch is the way to go

Isiah Thomas said...

I'll usually rock a 30 min nap at lunch.

Isiah Thomas said...

Full count and Beltran walks

ToddPacker said...

mets need to beat the 'why not us' phils

Isiah Thomas said...

sac fly for delgado, run scores, 3-2

El Padrino said...

i nominate zeke for the "LOV Joe Buck award"

your paternal parent said...

i'll usually rock a BJ from whoever's standing outside the local shelter on my lunch...

the perks of being near downtown.

ToddPacker said...

nice

ToddPacker said...

the nice was for the mets update.... but can be applied to the ypp comment also

ToddPacker said...

i hate joe buck
