The Pats are going to trade Randy Moss to the Vikings. I guess Minnesota is pretty desperate. Not that Moss can't still be a great player, but I seem to remember his slapping up a meter maid and crashing his car against the little police buggy thing...but hey, everyone makes mistakes.

Baseball playoffs start today...here's my in depth analysis of the divisional series....Reds over Phils...Giants over Braves. Twins over Yankees...Rays over Rangers.

One thing I love about fall, beef stew. I guess you could have it any time of the year, but it just seems perfect in the fall.

Bill traded Marshawn Lynch to the seahawks...the land of second chances and disappointments. What the heck happened to Marshawn? Remember when he was good for that one year?

The NFLPA says that owners are set for no season in 2011. I don't buy that. These guys didn't get rich by being stupid. They've covered their asses in case they can't work out a deal, but I highly doubt they want to cancel a season. Except of course unless somebody dies on the field.

My last thoughts and then i'll give up for the day. There's a lot of clamoring about Boise State and should they or shouldn't they be national championship contenders. My thought is that the way the system is today*, they should not. Although they have 2 quality wins, (VT will probably still come back and win the ACC), and have a chance for one more quality win if Nevada keeps trucking along. But they don't have the depth of the schedule as Ohio State or Alabama or even Oregon. Could they beat any of those 3 teams, absolutely, could they endure the full season of playing at that level? I don't know. They do have tremendous depth now, which was always the knock on the little schools. I think BSU would win or finish 2nd in the Pac-10 this year. I think they'd win or finish 2nd in the Big 12. I think they'd win the Big lEast no problem (and probably run the table). They'd win the ACC. They'd be in the top 2 in the Big 10. They'd be in the top 3 in the SEC. But I don't think in any of those conferences, an undefeated season is likely. That's my main argument against them being in the title game. Now, should they be there instead of a 2 loss team absolutely, but it will be tough to beat out a 1 loss SEC team.

"who is their #1 guy now to stretch the field? welker? welker is constantly going to be double teamed now. i guess coach hoodie thinks his no names will be able to win games."


rumor that I just made up was that they're moving Moss so they can go after Vincent Jackson now.

mike and mike and blue mentioned that on the radio this morning

apparently as it stands right now is the Pats have 2 picks in each of the first 4 rounds of the draft next year...so they have picks to spare.

The Closer (NOT!) said...

and if they grab vjax and sign him to a deal it makes more cents* for the pats

I'm waiting said...

"Oh and nice title for your post blue..."

BLUE said...

i had no song lyrics in my head today.

i didn't have much of anything in my head today

tem said...

if they are going to turn moss into vjax then that might work out. but moss into nothing for the rest of this season....well that sounds like you are punting this season.

BLUE said...

troy brown is walking through that door

kod said...

ooh, 3rd round pick


nice, I would have guessed 2nd round

tem said...

how long until el tardo posts something about moss?

3pm EST?

BLUE said...

didn't the pats give up a 4th rounder for him back in the day.

so they turned a 4th rounder into 3 years of service and a 3rd round pick...saavy

tem said...

yep, gave up a 4th rounder to oakland for him.

and a case of hair gel.

Spaceman Spiff said...

so brady took less money years back so the pats could pay others. they didnt and so brady wanted his money. he got it and now they trade his best receiver, wonder if they told him they got vjax locked up

Spaceman Spiff said...

"Spoke with TMac before the game. He's feeling good, lookin to go all 82. "

i'm picking t-mac in the first round of the fnba draft this year

" I don't buy that. These guys didn't get rich by being stupid. They've covered their asses in case they can't work out a deal, but I highly doubt they want to cancel a season."

Aren't the owners still going to make a bought*load of money from the TV deal, without having to pay the players anything?

My Tesus tat is suite said...

nice bsu woe post, freak

Skol, Kod!"

-Skol, Meiz; nice work!

kod said...

the Moss news combined with the Twins opener against the Yanks tonight is challenging my focus

so mize is off the packer bandwagon now?

"In their zeal to complete foreclosure proceedings, some banks send representatives to change the locks on properties in foreclosure, even as they remain occupied. The incidents of lock-changing pile further skepticism on a process recently plagued by scandal."


-smrt; do these banks and their agents have any self awareness?

BLUE said...

"Aren't the owners still going to make a bought*load of money from the TV deal, without having to pay the players anything?"

they will get paid TV money, but there's a lot of other money they won't have, from concessions to tickets to parking to jersey sales

it would be nice to see the Rangers finally win a playoff series.

TP if you're out there - you were just asking yesterday about a new UGA. Well in today's paper it was announced that the new one (UGA VIII) will debut on 10/16 against Vandy. The details are being kept hush-hush except that he is a "big" dog and a direct descendant of UGA VI.

UGA VI had the best winning % of any of them and had 2 SEC championships, so watch out after he's in place!

BLUE said...

TP is practically in GA today, so i'm sure he's heard the news

i was mistaken on that, since he wasnt the first reliever he didnt get that

i still like to think that maddon thought he would though

wouldnt mind see vladdy get a ring

The Closer (NOT!) said...

5-1

Keef said...

NELSON's HR was a bomb

Keef said...

Carlos Pena got hosed on a call in the 1st inning. Went from walking in a run to striking out and killing a rally

Keef said...

this place sucks

The Closer (NOT!) said...

your face got hosed

Keef said...

no, that's beth

fuck you victorino

Looks like Halladay isn't going to give up a hit today

I still don't know why Arroyo didn't start game 1

Keef said...

Game over

Keef said...

Glad I got done with work early to catch this garbage

Spaceman Spiff said...

game 1 was over when they were matched up with the phillies

reds got games 2 3 5 in the bag

Keef said...

Keef said...

fuck Dusty for pitching him in game 1

Keef said...

congrats on almost making it 2 full innings

Rays didn't do very well in Texas this year if i remember correctly

That's a lot of drool

Keef said...

"I just yogged"

I'm sorry

The Closer (NOT!) said...

i choose to yog

Keef said...

i'm sorry

Keef said...

Halladay perfect thru 4. He's thrown a 1st pitch strike to all 12 hitters

Keef said...

But the bad news is that he's gay and has aids

Spaceman Spiff said...

"I have to yog, release the pent up sexual frustration"

*fized

Keef said...

spiff, they're taking it slow

Spaceman Spiff said...

thats why he yogs, sprinting would help more but that would be hypocritical

Hey, Cincy got a baserunner

Not sure why Dusty batted for Wood with 1 out in the 6th and noone on. He was rolling along, save the bullpen

This announcer is dumb. Said that we might see Chapman this inning. Then the camera pans over to the Reds bullpen and shows Chapman sitting on a chair with a hoodie on

Spaceman Spiff said...

how is he dumb, his prediction came true a second later


S

Keef said...

well that's true

Keef said...

No hits thru 8 in his first playoff start. He also went 8+ no-hit innings in his 1st MLB game

The Rev said...

Unfuckingbelievable!

Keef said...

congrats rev

Keef said...

now go

Spaceman Spiff said...

rev should have went to the game

Keef said...

wow, tough play with the bat in the way

Halladay must be eating that meat that Contador eats

Spaceman Spiff said...

so much pressure on the other philly pitchers now

speaking of insufferable, i listened to two hours of bama sports talk on the radio today. new levels of insufferableness

My Tesus tat is suite said...

actual quotes from callers:

bama would beat osu by 40

bama IS the sec

bama's 3rd string would beat boise state

herbstreit and the rest of the gameday crew is jealous of bama's success

no one can match up with bama, so the nc game is gonna suck this year
