A horse eating oatmeal

NEWS: Plane crash, Buffalo, departed from Newark (hate that fucking airport). Everyone died. Fucked up, read the news.

Don't worry I will not talk about steroids, I just want to drop this fact I read in this week's SI.

"Linked to drugs are two thirds of the MVP winners from 1995 through 2003, five of the top 12 home run hitters of all time and three of the four players ever to smash 50 homers in a season more than twice". - Tom Verducci, SI

I read a piece on Lane Kiffin, man he is a relentless little prick. Arrogant fucker. Me and him would get along. Talks about how he recruited assistants just as hard as he recruited players and he swayed like 4 coaches to leave other SEC schools, guys from Ole Miss, LSU, Bama and Florida. Great piece.

SI was solid this week. Even read a piece on some Nascar driver named Carl Edwards. He's nuts.

One more SI note, they had an excerpt of a book called "Odd Man Out" by Matt McCarthy. It's a book about McCarthy's time in the minors with the Provo Angels (Anaheim affiliate) and it's a great look into the life of a minor leaguer. I recommend the book even though I hate books and only read the excerpt and not the entire book.

Now to the crux of the post. NBA. Since it's NBA all-star weekend I have some 2nd half projections, hopefully they will be proven credible if they pan out or if T agrees with a couple of them.

I think the Cavs win the East. And maybe even win it all. Let me esplain. The C's are not as strong as they were last year. Despite the progression of Rondo and Perkins they don't have a strong bench (Allen is a nice surprise but after that 0) and because of that their crunchtime defense is weaker. Cavs took them to the brink last year, winnable game 7 too and the year before they made it to the Finals with a team far less superior to this year's. The team can match anyone's intensity and anyone's toughness. Remember when we or all of the media would say just wait until Lebron starts hitting the outside shot? Well he's hitting it and hitting it better than 44%. He also has been averaging a career low in minutes which tells me he hasn't needed to carry the load EVERY night. Good. Keep "Shaq-fresh" for the playoffs approach. I like it. Pistons are weak because of AI. The Magic is done because of the Nelson injury. And if Ferry can pull off a Joe Smith or a Brad Miller or a Marcus Camby for Wally's expiring 13.8MM contract, oh man. It's lock city. As far as winning it all there is a guy named Kobe who plays for the Lakers and he might have something to say about that. For all of Lebron's talent and awe I would take Kobe Bryant in a Game 7 series any day of the week. He's just an assassin. And he know how to rape ass which is a great thing to utilize in the playoffs.
Disclaimer : I worry about the Lakers getting past San Antonio, looks like they have a run in them this year.

I say OJ Mayo should win ROY. No disrespect to Rose.

Kincks might make the 8 seed. It's nothing to be happy about but I should mention it.

How awful was the Devin Harris/Kidd deal?

I still see Stat in Miami. Beasly/Chalmers/Haslem maybe?

Totally unrelated, Pat Summit has won 1,000 basketball games as a coach? Christ. Womens bball is an anomaly around here but don't act like you not impressed.

Weekend advice : Dark Beer and Ribs.

There's been several articles in the AJC about how Lane Kiffin is basically what you called him, "a relentless little prick", but without the relentless part. He better produce soon or his act will grow old VERY quickly.

Beth said...

And damn meiz, you supposedly your job would fall apart without you but you have to rely on others to remind you to do your golf picks? Man up dude.

"According to CNN affiliate WGRZ-TV in Buffalo, one of the crash victims, Beverly Eckert, was the widow of 9/11 terror attack victim Sean Rooney, a Buffalo native. Eckert was traveling to Buffalo for a weekend celebration of what would have been her husband's 58th birthday."

fuck's sake, they ended up meeting the same fate albeit different circumstances

tem said...

el pad has a ticket broker?

El Padrino said...

yes, yes i do

tem said...

so you have some guy buy your tickets for you instead of going to ticketmaster.com yourself?


or is that just how it works in NYC. brokers take up all the tickets and you gotta go through them?

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

Can NYers do anything on their own? You need someone to get you tickets for you. You need someone to make your bets. You need an undefeated football team to choke so you can win a title. It's redonk.

El Padrino said...

"or is that just how it works in NYC. brokers take up all the tickets and you gotta go through them?"

exactly, they squeeze the market, it's horrible but i'm starting to trust ticketsnow.com

El Padrino said...

"I said the Mess wouldn't choke"

but then there is everything else you said

El Padrino said...

"no need for ticket brokers. can afford a house, cost of living in low etc, etc."

yeah but ohio comes across to me as "shitty"

WADR

no beaches, weather shitty (i think), seedy neighborhoods, teams never win shit, buckeyes, etc.

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

"yeah there are no such neighborhoods in NYC."

Exactly.

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

You apparently have to watch out for planes landing in your house or river in NY, too.

Then why use that as a reason why Ohio sucks?

El Padrino said...

"is el pad really saying the crime in ohio is more wierd than the crime in NYC?"

yes, our crime is normal
murder, rape, robbery

your shit is like out there, like this:

"BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio fourth-grade teacher had a side job as a prostitute, and even skipped class after using a school computer to arrange an afternoon tryst at a motel."

so tOSU is better in at least one area than it was last year.


I think USC takes a step back, lost their QB and half their studs on defense

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

"so tOSU is better in at least one area than it was last year.

I think USC takes a step back, lost their QB and half their studs on defense"


I'm not arguing this at all. I said OSU wouldn't lose by a big margin. But they'll probably still lose because they also lost a ton of guys on D and some studs on offense. I just don't think Mustain is as bad as you do.

Blue said...

oh ISWYDT...you're using the "he sucked because the SEC defense was so good" theory

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

Didn't USC get the #1 QB recruit this year too?

ToddPacker said...

why are you arguing about next season ncaa football.... i think we all know who will win the nc (again)

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

FU won't win it again

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

I have a Jo-Bros-ner said...

ToddPacker said...

"FU won't win it again"
