Ken Griffey Jr. To Be Traded To Chicago White Sox

July 31st, 2008 . by admin

Just wanted to take a few moments to congratulate Ken Griffey Jr. on the impending trade to the Chicago White Sox. He’s had many hard injury filled losing seasons in his career, and now he can finally finish it with a legitimate playoff contender.

Between hitting his 600th career home run and being shipped to Chicago, I’d say 2008 hasn’t been that bad of a year for Griff. If the Oakland A’s don’t make the postseason, I’ll be rooting for Ozzie and Ken.

The Green Bay Packers Are Offering Brett Favre $20 Million To STAY AWAY???

July 31st, 2008 . by admin


I’m watching ESPN’s Mike & Mike In The Morning and they’re discussing the report of the Green Bay Packers offering Brett $20 million dollars over 10 years just to STAY HOME. I cannot believe this shit…..I just can’t.

They are SO threatened with the possibility of Brett Favre putting on a Chicago Bears/Minnesota Vikings uniform that they’re willing to give him an absurd amount of money for free. Could they possibly be any more dramatic about this situation? Why not just release him and get on with your lives? The Packers have defended their decision not to release Brett Favre as “a matter of business” for an entire month now. How is it a better “business decision” to give him $20 million dollars just to stay at home?

The cap hit Green Bay takes if they release Favre is considerably less than the $20 million he gets if he takes their offer and never plays football again. We’re in a recession right now and people are losing their jobs and struggling all over the country, why not just release Brett and do something constructive with that extra money? Is it wrong to take a public relations hit and let Favre go to Chicago, then use that $20 million dollars to give to poor families?

If anyone finds my blogging objectionable and wants to pay me not to write anymore… I’m all ears. Opening bids start at $50,000.

NOOOOOO!!, ESPN Is ‘Dismembering’ Emmitt Smith From The Crew

July 29th, 2008 . by admin

ESPN has delivered a crushing blow to the world of comedy by replacing Emmitt Smith on NFL Countdown with Cris Carter. How dare they take away Mr. Smith’s “rice of passage” by letting Cris move in on his territory. It’s not like Carter has his own prestigious trading card or anything.

The good news is Emmitt will remain on the ridiculously long version of Monday Night Countdown, as well as the on-site post game show with Stuart Scott and Steve Young.


Nike’s Homophobic Ads? ….. Get The F’ Outta Here …..

July 28th, 2008 . by admin

Earlier this month, I posted a funny Nike commercial titled 1-800-Dunk’d-On which was about a guy getting embarrassed on the basketball court and ridiculed by his friends as a result.

Dunking in your opponents face, blocking their shots, and “breaking” their ankles have always been one of the most entertaining parts of basketball. It’s all about competition and never meant to be disrespectful, once the game is over you give your opponent a dap (not a “fist bump”) and then you keep it movin.

Well, several sensitive individuals and/or members of the homosexual community have spoken out against the advertisements, claiming they imply that having another man’s genitals in your face is bad.

Can you believe how ridiculous this sounds?

Not wanting to piss anyone off, Nike has pulled the ad campaign and apologized for any misunderstandings.

Like I stated earlier, the ads were strictly confined to the act of getting dunked on, but even if they WERE implying a man’s genitals in your face was bad… it STILL wouldn’t be homophobic. I say this because, anytime ANYONE puts their privates in your face without asking… you’re going to react negatively. I’m 100% hetero, and I would frown if Lisa Leslie dunked on me and I had her sweaty catchers mitt all on my forehead. This isn’t a gender specific thing folks.


LaMont Jordan Wins The Lottery! Lucky Bastard

July 28th, 2008 . by admin

Almost two months ago, I wrote a post detailing how the Oakland Raiders dissed LaMont Jordan by telling him “don’t show up for work”. For the last sixty days the Raiders have been trying to trade LaMont, but nobody would accept a deal (the Raiders had no leverage). Oakland grudgingly released Jordan from his contract a few days ago and received no compensation.

Being the snazzy little fuckers they are, the New England Patriots signed LaMont to a contract on Sunday afternoon. He’ll provide a nice little one-two punch with Lawrence Maroney next season. Don’t get me wrong, I hate the Patriots but I do acknowledge that they have a very good team (it’s the least I can do).

LaMont has to be thrilled he went from the most dysfunctional franchise in the NFL to one of the most successful.
