How bout those 2 huge winners on Tuesday night. Too bad you faggots are more concerned about the titties and not the money to pay for them. lol
-- Detroit Tigers will be tough in short series with Verlander, but they also have Doug Fister, who has a 2.64 ERA in 44.1 IP with Detroit, with three walks and 36 strikeouts. They might be tougher than Texas.
-- For some reason, Packers have five tight ends on their roster. Why?
-- There is actually a pro tennis player named Jack Sock? Sounds more like the stage name for a porn star.
-- Since losing 18-2 Sunday night, White Sox have allowed one run in winning their last three games. Tough year in Minnesota.
-- Baltimore-Bronx game was scheduled for 7:05 start; game didn't start until 11pm because of rain, but it was still raining when they started.
-- How greedy can you be? Tickets are expensive as hell to games in the Bronx. With a 1pm game scheduled Wednesday, they started a game 14 hours before that one? Nitwits.
Wednesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but........
13) When Tennessee hired Lane Kiffin, they did LSU a huge favor. How? Kiffin brought in his dad as defensive coordinator, but the Vols already had John Chavis, one of the best DC’s in America. So when Chavis was sent packing, Les Miles gladly scooped him up, and its no coincidence that the Bayou Bengals now have one of the best defenses in America.
12) Speaking of Tennessee football, the Vols recently bought their way out of a scheduled 2013 road game at Oregon. No sense going all the way cross country to play a game you don’t think you can win.
11) Toronto Blue Jays are 9-0 at home in extra inning games.
10) Over the last decade, Chargers have been favored in three playoff games, but lost all three- their only playoff wins this decade both came as underdogs in Indianapolis.
9) Out of all the games in the major leagues this season, only twice has a pitcher allowed 10+ hits and struck out 10+ in the same game: Matt Garza against the Pirates April 3, and CC Sabathia in Boston August 30.
8) Another oddity last weekend; Francisco Cervelli batted four times Saturday, and saw only four pitches, putting each one in play. It’s the only time in the major leagues all season a player batted 4+ times and never took a pitch, putting each pitch in play.
7) The Mike Scioscia coaching tree is a strong one (Maddon-Black-Roenicke) but Maddon may wind up being more influential than Scioscia; lot of teams have copied his more extreme shifts against powerful lefty hitters, and the Brewers have copied Tampa Bay by trying to lighten their mood on road trips, having “theme trips” where the travelling party all dresses a certain way, according to where they’re going. They all dressed in western garb on their trip to Houston last weekend. Whatever works.
6) Since 2003, the Colts are 50-17 in games decided by 7 or less points.
5) Hue Jackson is Oakland Raiders’ 7th coach in the last 11 years and that’s not including any interim coaches there might’ve been. Steelers have had three head coaches since 1969.
4) Was surprised to read that Boston hasn’t hosted an NBA All-Star Game since 1964. Hell, even Las Vegas hosted one a few years ago.
3) There have been 883 coaching changes in Division I college football since Joe Paterno became Penn State's coach in 1966.
2) Why is Mississippi State playing Auburn/LSU within five days of each other, I mean other than to get a game on ESPN? Bulldogs have a good team now; they should protect their players better than this.
1) All this conference realignment talk makes me sick, but it is kind of interesting; its like a multi-million dollar game of musical chairs, where no one wants to be left standing outside the BCS, which is where the big money lies. As in all games, some schools are going to be losers (Iowa State? Baylor?). Ton of politics going on behind the scenes.
Drunk Joe Namath will always be the best.
The NFL kicks off its season tomorrow. Hell yes. When you hear the glass, it's your ass! And with the beginning of every sport comes a new set of predictions. Since the AFC is void of much craziness usually (since the same culprits make the playoffs every year), we'll start the NFL predictions there.
It never fails. Every season, 5 or 6 teams that made the playoffs in the previous season fail to meet expectations the next year. So who sucks this year? Well, we can forget about the Seahawks and Chiefs to get back already. No way those teams make it back to January. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's get to the rundowns.
1. Patriots 12-4 - Blah, blah, blah. New England is predictable. Win the division and then lose a home game in the playoffs. It will happen again because they can't get to the quarterback and they aren't physical.
2. Jets* 11-5 - The Jets aren't getting better but they are getting older. I love Rex but fuck Fireman Ed.
3. Bills 8-8 - Here we go. They may be a surprise. I had the Chiefs winning the West last year when no one else did and this is my call now. Yes, I am buying stock in the Toronto Bills. They're due.
4. Dolphins 4-12 - Chad Henne. Bring back Jay Fiedler.
1. Ravens 11-5 - You can flip a coin as to who wins this division.
2. Steelers* 10-6 - I kind of didn't want to put them as a playoff team this year because, recently, Pittsburgh blows the year after they go to the Super Bowl. They get bad bounces. They miss crucial field goals (and will this year). They have the oldest defense in the league by far. That can't be good. This might be the final title push for this current group of Steeler defenders.
3. Browns 7-9 - They're still going to kind of suck cocks and if Hillis gets hurt, this is a 3 win team, but they'll play hard and won't be a pushover. I've heard about enough of this "Colt McCoy is going to be a good NFL QB" nonsense though. The new kickoff rule hurts the Browns since they rely on Josh's Cribbs to bust one every game.
4. Bengals 1-15 - Quite possibly the worst offense ever assembled. And they are so stupid that when they get the #1 pick, they will pass on Luck for some 380 pound OL from the SEC.
1. Texans 10-6 - Book it. They have the best playmakers in the division and a competent Wade Phillips running the defense now. They don't even need Arian Foster to win the South.
2. Colts 8-8 - At least they will sell a lot of XXXXL sweater vests in Indiana this Fall. I didn't like this team before Pey-Pey needed a new neck. I sure as hell don't like them now. They don't draft well. It's just a franchise on the down slope. It happens.
3. Titans 6-10 - Matt Hasselbeck is worse than a sober Kerry Collins. Tennessee has the worst uniforms in all of sports. Fuck them.
4. Jaguars 4-12 - Cutting your starting QB less than a week before the first game? That's fucking terrible business. Whichever McCown they are going with is terrible. Jack Del Rio deserves to be fired. He is no Alberto Del Rio.
1. Chargers 11-5 - Norv is coaching for the job that he never should have gotten in the first place. I see 2011 being a revenge year for the Bolts.
2. Broncos 8-8 - They'll be a little better. That's all I have to say about them.
3. Raiders 6-10 - Last year was a fluke. Yeah, I said it. They will be cosmically punished for unfairly firing Tom Cable and drafting Terrelle Pryor.
4. Chiefs 6-10 - Speaking of flukes, Matt Cassel is fucking terrible. Any coach who thinks that Thomas Jones should get as many carries as Jamaal Charles is a toolshed. Bring back Christian Okoye.
Playoffs: Give me the Chargers over the Ravens.
We'll do the awards, too.
MVP - Marmalard Rivers and Mario Williams
ROY - Julio Jones and Ryan Kerrigan (double digit sacks)
Coach - Norm "you've got to be kidding" Turner
