Ate. Thirty-Six.

Man, work has been crazy. That's why I haven't been around lately. Way too much work. Seriously, it's like DEFCON 1 over here. And I had to go to a No Doubt concert last night for gf's birfday, so I actually wrote this Tuesday morning. Yes, the No Doubt tickets were expensive. Yes, I am aware that I will be shamed for admitting that I went to/paid a grip to go to a No Doubt concert. I am too tired to care. ::UPDATE:: It was ok, I guess. No Doubt was ok, Paramore was a snoozer, I was most impressed with the opening band, The Sounds. Really cool Swedish band. Dammit, why are Swedish bands always awesome?

As Tem reported yesterday, the Hornets swap Tyson Chandler for Emeka Okafor. I guess it makes sense for both sides. Hornets get a dude that can do the same things Chandler can, but at a discount, and the Bobcats cut salary at the end of the next season. Okafor has had some injuries in the past (but he's coming off back-to-back 82 game seasons), however, the Hornets are banking on the fact that he will play more than the half seasons that Chandler was giving them. Charlotte needs to have their team taken away from both the city and the owner and they need to move it all to Seattle. Because the ownership and the fan base is inept. I'm just sayin'.

Simmons FINALLY realizes that everyone hates Boston, especially the Celtics. It's about 3/4 of the way through the article, right next to the Rondo pic. Yes, no one likes the Celtics unless you were born in Boston or still live there for some reason. Not exactly a newsflash.

But the funniest part of that Simmons article is where he plays the Bill Simmons And Then Game™ and turns the Clippers into a Championship team that can charge Lakers ticket prices and features LeBron as it's centerpiece. And it will only cost you about a billion dollars to do. So if you've got that laying around, you should think about it. You'd probably be contractually obligated to hire Simmons on as your GM though. The funny thing is that he doesn't really talk about making a profit, other than "charging Lakers ticket prices" and "selling a bunch of jerseys". That's what happened to Cuban, he bought the team, paid a ton for players/coaches, did a lot of cool stuff to the arena, and guess what?, he has admitted that he loses money on the Mavs each season, even at the height of their popularity a few years ago. So you're talking about almost paying almost triple for the Clippers than Cuban did for the Mavs, and you've got one of the greatest franchises in the league as your direct competition in the same market, and all you have to do is "charge Lakers ticket prices" and "sell more jerseys" and you think you're going to break even? That is why Simmons is a sports writer. Dude, just stick to writing about sports and not coming up with hare-brained schemes like you're Wile E. Coyote trying to catch the Roadrunner. Just stop already.

Allegedly Marvin Harrison likes to allegedly shoot people allegedly. A alleged second man has allegedly come forward and allegedly said that Harrsion allegedly popped an alleged cap in him. Allegedly. Please do not sue me Marvin Harrison.

Farve Watch 2009: IS OVER!!! Yeah, that's right, he's going to stay retired! Praise Allah!!! Oh man, I can die in peace now.

World Wide Bleeder reports that the Jays-Phillies talks "aren't going well". Really? Thanks for that info.

Josh Willingham was on the main page of Yahoo's fantasy page the other day and the article was saying that he should be owned because he's been raking the last couple of months. I looked into it and almost added him, but my outfield is pretty set in both leagues, so I decided to hold off on it. I could have added him in time for the game where he hit two grand slams. I am an awesome fantasy manager.

DESPITE the fact that Hank Aaron is now actively campaigning for Pete Rose to be put into the Hall of Fame, Selig is still "reviewing" Rose's case. What the hell is there to review? Has Selig been in a coma the last 20 years? I'm sure he got an ass-full about Rose from the last commish when he took over, so besides Pete Rose himself, he pretty much knows all there is to know about the deal; so either lift the suspension or don't. And if you're going to do it, please do it sometime soon. According to ESPN Selig is now "seriously considering" it. Good to know the situation has been upgraded. Next week we will be at "kinda, sorta thinking about maybe reinstating him at some point" status. Stay tuned...

And that's it, I've got shit to do.

"Bill Simmons And Then Game™ "


hilarity

El Padrino said...

Facing the first real rough patch of his presidency, President Obama and his supporters are once again resorting to a tried-and-true tactic: attacking George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

In his White House press conference last week, Mr. Obama referred to the Bush era at least nine times, three times lamenting that he "inherited" a $1.3 trillion debt that has set back his administration's efforts to fix the economy.

El Padrino said...

"For a guy who campaigned on taking responsibility and looking forward, he spends an awful lot of time pointing fingers and looking backward," said former Bush deputy press secretary Tony Fratto, who has begun defending the previous administration.

(Madonna is) bracing herself on hearing that some of her old X-rated video tapes, voice messages and love letters are about to be made public.
The intimate items are going up for grabs in an online auction.
The personal artifacts - including two micro cassette tapes of answering machine messages and 21 faxed letters - shine the spotlight on her romance with former minder Jim Albright. He started work as her bodyguard in 1992 and mixed business with pleasure for two years.

some dealerships around here are matching the gov rebate. 9k for a trade in could be pretty sweet, if they don't jack up the price of the car you're buying.
