Hockey Post

The NFL and other various sports outlets tell me that the 1958 Championship Game between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants was the greatest game ever played.

No one's ever told anybody why this was the greatest game ever played (other than the spike in viewership, first overtime game and back and forth scoring...oh and like 14 hall of famers) and I won't argue the fact. I just wish I coulda seen it. A big reason why we all love sports (wait, this is still a sports blog right) is because of it's history. Memories. It would have been nice to see the greatest game ever played is all I'm saying. It's actually probably a better sport then, than it is now. Just cuz it seems like old-school is always better than new school. I betcha Pat Summerall didn't "make it rain" at the local strip club the night before this game.

Ah, what do I know. I ain't TP. I'm only 28, but I know I hate that complete games are a rarity, I know I miss Charles Oakley, I know I like it when QB's get annihilated and PG's mauled. I like it when hockey players fist fight.

I like that the Chicago White Sox had two naked blow up dolls in the clubhouse in Toronto a couple of days ago. I hate that they were reprimanded for having it because of a female journalist (she would feel uncomfortable). Bitch.

Moving on....

Bastards:

Bruce Bowen

Webb's sinker

Belichik

The drink at Sawgrass

Lead story on CNN, Katrina survivor who lost two homes in the storm won the Powerball lottery. 97MM. I don't like to spend people's money but if I were him I'd get the fuck out of Lousiana.

Wow, I guess it's up to a non-lawyer (but lawyer groupie :-)) to point out that Freak's post yesterday couldn't be "libel/slander" as it kept getting referred to in the LOVad discussions. Libel is for stuff that's written and slander is for stuff that's verbal, so it obviously could only have been libel.

See, LOV can be educational after all, and not just about inane fantasy stuff... :-)

Tyler said...

I don't know if sports were better back then, many because there were a lot of uncoordinated white people playing back then.

Tyler said...

Good post by the way. I miss Charles Oakley too. He needs his own reality TV show.

Tyler said...

I just heard that Ben Wallace left Game 2 of the Cavs/Celtics series because of allergies. It's the playoffs and you're getting overpaid an obscene amount of money to play basketball. Suck it up and do work son.

Tyler said...

And EP, they're saying the Knicks are going to offer D'Antoni a five year, $30 million contract.

Tyler said...

Early morning wall.

Tyler said...

I gotta get ready to sit in traffic.

Tyler said...

I'll check back later. Again, good work El P.

El Padrino said...

Thanks T

El Padrino said...

I heard it was Mark Jackson's job to lose but who knows with the Knicks

I like either one, D'Antoni however, I would be interested to see how he uses this roster as there are no players that fit his coaching style except for a couple of unproven younsters (Wilson Chandler, Balkman)

El Padrino said...

i love white people jokes

contrary to the title, this is not a hockey post

ohh, i guess i go back and read it then.

Beth said...

"chris paul would definetely beat me in a one-on-one game"

Nah, you'd shoot him in the knee cap.

(Had to stop your run EP.)

Steve said...

"obviously could only have been libel"


we could just claim that this is a comedy blog therefore we can say any thing we feel like because nobody would be taking us seriously to begin with. right?

Steve said...

"fat, cheap bastards"

no doubt, 23 cent pizza is great, but i wouldn't wait in line for an hour for it, or 30 minutes for that matter.

Steve said...

"fat, cheap bastards"

blue said...

people said it was the "principle" of it, waiting in line for .23 pizzas...also that you "can't beat this deal"

well when somebody sells pizza for .21 then you beat it.

Steve said...

"people said it was the "principle" of it, waiting in line for .23 pizzas...also that you "can't beat this deal"


these are the kinda people who don't consider the the value of their own personal time. or consider it and give it a really really low value.

blue said...

like the people who camp out for a week for the Duke/UNC game

Beth said...

"like the people who camp out for a week for the Duke/UNC game"

Well played. :-)

Steve said...

"like the people who camp out for a week for the Duke/UNC game"


that's a little different. now you're talking about the value of the experience of watching a Duke/UNC game in Cameron. some would call them crazy others would not. Also, when they camp, they do it in groups of 10-12 and rotate. So it's not like 1 person is there the whole time. Also, it't basicaly a week long party.

I'd do it.

Steve said...

or a month long party in some cases.

Steve said...

i think a better example is the assholes that dress the part and camp for a damn Start Wars movie.

Wait 3 days, and then go see it in your nerdy little storm trooper outfit.

blue said...

is it pick on meiz day?

blue said...

some older allysa milano topless pictures..not from that movie she got topless in

Steve said...

"is it pick on meiz day?"

why do you ask?

Steve said...

those are nice blue. the perfect breast right there. not too big, not too small, nice and firm.

i approve.

El Padrino said...

milano is nice

blue said...

i agree with steve on the perfectness...of course these pictures are 15 years old, and now those breasts touch her knees probably, but it's nice to remember

Steve said...

Still not too bad at all...to say the least


SFW

blue said...

i would like to touch those

blue said...

my fantasy team is hitting .197...awesome

One of the biggest WTFs i've seen in a long time.

Kingwood is the rich area of Houston too...that's funny shit

Keith S said...

On this day in 1992...

Terry Norris, the WBC super welterweight champion, entered the ring against Meldrick Taylor with the word KNOCKOUT shaved on the back of his head. Norris used his hands as well as his head and successfully defended his title.

blue said...

even this guy is better than meiz

Keith S said...

Stings the nostrils

Keith S said...

I just had to tell 2 people that were standing right by my desk, talking about the meaning of life, to go someplace else. Now I'm the asshole.

Keith S said...

oh well

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"contrary to the title, this is not a hockey post"


I suppose I'll go read it sometime.

Keith S said...

Crap, I forgot to do a TDiLoVH last night.

"Now I'm the asshole."

Now?

Keith S said...

Good point

"i saw a commercial with a split screen baron davis and some dude for some movie...i get that they were parodying the nba playoffs commercials, but i don't get what the commercial was for"

adam sandler movie 'you don't mess with the zohan', commercial says it at the end. The trailer has played a bunch in the theaters, i'll probly see it.

Spaceman Spiff said...

'some dude' was adam sandler in character

Spaceman Spiff said...

ben wallace is such a liability offensively that they came up with that allergy excuse, if he is on the floor, garnett can go double anyone he wants and will block a lot more shots

blue said...

why baron davis

Spaceman Spiff said...

granderson has struck out 7 of his last 10 ABs, who knew a slump was contagious on a fantasy team, hit under .100 yesterday

blue said...

you need a slumpbuster

Spaceman Spiff said...

baron has nothing else to do, maybe he knows sandler though his alba/alba's baby daddy connection

blue said...

i forgot BD is a "big time" movie producer now too

El Padrino said...

Pena struck out like 7 straight times, right keef?

El Padrino said...

wed 0-4 with 4 k's and thurs 0-4 with 3 k's

Keith S said...

I dunno. I know he hit a HR yesterday.

El Padrino said...

so tues/wed

Keith S said...

I remember I had Mark Reynolds in my lineup a few weeks ago and he had a K in something like 8/9 ABs.

tem went to akron...and that's as close to hell as possible...so yeah, maybe

Keith S said...

Akron does suck.

Keith S said...

Buca di Beppo tonight.

blue said...

buca is a step up from the OG, you must have gotten the economic stimulus

blue said...

Buca has a "pope room"

Steve said...

So, Whoever is doing the ads by google thing.

Has any money been made yet?

Beth said...

I think even EP may give a half-hearted endorsement of Buca. I've been to the Atlanta one a few times (even sat in the Pope room once) and have loved it each time.

blue said...

i've clicked on a couple of ads

blue said...

buca is "family style"

El Padrino said...

no buca by me to try

El Padrino said...

i had some phenominal pizza last night, wood burning oven, place near me

italian ham, artichokes, fresh mozz, basil, shrooms

delish

El Padrino said...

couple of peroni's on top

MAGNIFICO!

Keith S said...

"buca is a step up from the OG, you must have gotten the economic stimulus

Buca has a "pope room""


We's got 15 people eating, so this works a little better. We asked to reserve the pope room, too. I've been in there once. It's kind of creepy if the head is staring at you while you're eating.

Keith S said...

Peroni is good

blue said...

we typically choose Maggianos over Buca

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Blue takes cheap shots. Kinda like the weasel.

blue said...

Buca takes you on a tour of the kitchen prior to seating

Keith S said...

I just checked my bank account and I have now been stimulated

Keith S said...

"we typically choose Maggianos over Buca"

Maggianos is spendy

blue said...

where was the cheap shot?

Beth said...

"Buca takes you on a tour of the kitchen prior to seating"

I want to eat at the kitchen table someday, although I've heard the novelty wears off very quickly.

blue said...

"Maggianos is spendy"

i thought it was about the same as Buca, but I could be wrong....you can never get into Maggianos around here, so we go to a local place that is awesome

Keith S said...

Does beth still eat at the kiddie table?

isiah thomas said...

solid post EP.

Just cuz it seems like old-school is always better than new school.

I think its the opposite, I think today's afleets would crush the old-school. Bill Russell would get ho-slapped in today's game.

I betcha Pat Summerall didn't "make it rain" at the local strip club the night before this game.

this was funny. I hope if Pat did try to make it rain he'd throw a couple "beg your pardons" in the mix.

isiah thomas said...

Maggianos is spendy


whaaaa? Maggianos cheap (affordable not the quality of the food)

isiah thomas said...

*maggianos is cheap

Keith S said...

Maybe I'm thinking of someplace else.

iammadeofsteel said...

blue is living in the past (the pic)

blue said...

they are the NL champions until someone else is

isiah thomas said...

I think Maggiano's is a great deal.

just some salad and dinner for 2 and you can be out of that place for under $40 easily.

now you add on some wine and dessert and you'll get up there.

blue said...

maggianos is more expensive than OG or Macaroni Grill, but i think it's in the same range as Buca, and not near as expensive as some trendy italian eatery

Keith S said...

OG & MG are more authentic

blue said...

no doubt

blue said...

"just some salad and dinner for 2 and you can be out of that place for under $40 easily"

cue meiz

Steve said...

"I think its the opposite, I think today's afleets would crush the old-school. Bill Russell would get ho-slapped in today's game."

i disagree...kinda. i guess it depends on how you look at it.

i think the old school kats did what they had to do to become better than everybody else. it's the inner competitiveness that made them great. that would exist today just like it did 20-30 years ago. they'd hit the weights/gym and they would be able to play.

now if you're just talking about popping said player out of his time and magically sticking him in the game today, then no, they couldn't play with the new guys.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I got nothing.

Spaceman Spiff said...

buca is much cheaper than maggianos if you eat family style

El Padrino said...

bob cousy would murder steve nash

El Padrino said...

but it depends i guess

El Padrino said...

and i really mean the game itself, not so much the players

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Blue, rejected.

blue said...

fair enough

Spaceman Spiff said...

UF football player is scum

TP must have known about this also and is continuing to be 'nazi'd' so he doesnt have to post about it

Spaceman Spiff said...

i think he was saying that cousy would actually kill nash, either for being canadian or so he could have white point guard supremacy

wft was sexson doing yesterday? that pitch was high but not inside, didnt even come close to him, idiot

Sexson is a reefer-headed pussy.

settle down

sexson did that as a joke

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

please use proper protocol next time.

Keith S said...

Sexson is just mad because he sucks now.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I vote no.

that's what the rangers announcer kept saying "what a joke" "that's a joke"...so i'm guessing he was joking

When was he good?

He was ok w/ the Brewers, and for 1 month w/ the Dbags

fair point.

Like T said though, Russell for example was what 6'6'' or so and dominated against chez whitey's?

he ain't blocking Shaq's shot or dominating Duncan on the boards.

isiah thomas said...

Stat would leave Russell laying on the court in the fetal position after taking him to the rack...ditto Dwight Howard.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I guess he was pretty good.


I had no idea he had 2 45hr seasons here.

Keith S said...

Russell was 6'10"

blue said...

Russell was a legit 6'10

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Bill Russell was 6'10"

blue said...

bill russell is one of the few players in the foregone NBA era, who I think could still be a star in today's game...he was basically tim duncan, but better defensively

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Wow. i2i2i?

Keith S said...

"I had no idea he had 2 45hr seasons here."


Mizeford

blue said...

in the NFL, the game has changed so much, but a guy like dick butkus, who would be too slow to be a MLB nowadays, would still be a damn good defensive end or something...that's the drive and competiveness

Keith S said...

Butkus would be an awesome HS basketball coach.

blue said...

so would Reggie Theus

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Mizeford"

I was too busy loathing him to notice.

Keith S said...

Do you normally loathe players from your team that hit 40+ HRs and have 120+ RBI?

El Padrino said...

Al Bundy was a tremendous Pop Warner football coach

if they're on his fantasy bench, he does

isiah thomas said...

the bible and other sources say 6'10", I'll have to peep game on some nba classic, clips I've seen he didn't seem that tall.

rarely are players actually as tall as listed.

El Padrino said...

"Personally, another show, even a good one, examining the psyche of a middle-aged American man, a former high school sports star and father at that, risks treading a well-worn road, but the hook to Hung is that the guy’s dick is huge. And apparently, he’ll learn to use this to his advantage."


NEW HBO SHOW, called HUNG

And yes it's based on my life story.

Beth said...

That shark surfing video has to be fake. Notice they never film the front of the shark so I bet there's a boat pulling it, and notice how calm the other surfers are when a huge great white is supposedly swimming right next to them. It's a pretty well done fake though.
