Weezy will be appearing on ESPN the morning of January 6th for a mini debate with Skip Bayless. Those that are familiar with Lil Wayne knows that he’s liable to say anything (and the odds of you actually understanding what he’s talking about is a 50/50 crapshoot). Weezy writes a blog for ESPN.com and this will be his first foray into actually proving analysis on the air.
Much like Lil Wayne, Skip Bayless is also liable to say anything (and it’s usually something crazy for shock value)…. so the odds of their “Debate” being highly entertaining are great… I’m not missing this for the world.
This just in. After 14 years, 2 Super Bowls, and countless games with that maroon face, the axe fell on Coach Mike Shanahan of the Denver Broncos. This makes him the 4th NFL coach in 2 days to get his walking papers, including the NY Jets’ Eric “Mangenius” Mangini, Cleveland’s Romeo Crennel, and the Detroit Lions’ Rod Marinelli (big surprise!)
The difference between Shanahan and the rest? Yes, Mike Shanny got fired, but he also walks away with more than $20 million. For that kind of money, especially in these hard-ass economic times, who really cares??
Could you find two teams who are more polar opposite than Atlanta and Arizona right now? The Falcons have won 5 of their last 6 games and look like one of the hottest teams in the NFL, while the Cardinals have lost 4 of their last 6 and completely broke down at the end of the season. There are lots of fans and analysts who feel like the Cards don’t even belong in the postseason with the effort they’ve been putting forth lately.
Reasons to believe Atlanta will win: 1. Matt Ryan and Michael Turner are on fire right now, Turner was only 60 yards short of the NFL rushing title, and Ryan somehow looks like a veteran in the pocket.
2. The Falcons are a scrappy team – If you look at the scoreboard on all of Atlanta’s recent wins, they have mostly been by 7 points or less. Atlanta doesn’t give up in the 4th quarter and battle it out until the final whistle.
Reasons to believe Arizona will win:
1. The Cards are great at home – This team went 6-2 at home this season (and one of those games was a really close loss to the Giants), so Atlanta may have a tough time in the desert.
2. Atlanta’s defense sucks – I know folks may not believe it, but Atlanta’s defense is statistically worse than the Cardinals. They’re facing a team with an incredibly explosive offense on the road, so it’s really up in the air how they’ll perform here.
So who am I predicting to win it?
You’d be hard pressed to find ANYONE who thinks Arizona can win the way they’ve been playing lately, but I’m actually putting my chips behind Kurt Warner and the gang. Nobody takes this team seriously (with good reason), but Arizona possesses this mythical retard strength. Just when you’re expecting them to roll over and die, they’ll go crazy and flip over a Volkswagen Beetle and take a bite out of a tree.
There have been rumors here and there regarding a Hines Ward divorce in the last few months, and it seems like those helpful porn stars are helping ease the pain of his broken heart.
Hines is pictured here with Lisa Ann a.k.a “the chick from the Sarah Palin porno” at the Adult Dvd Empire Company Christmas party (why wasn’t I invited?). According to Lisa’s blog, she didn’t have very much contact with Hines but I’m sure there were more than a few other girls there who have officially entered the new baby mama sweepstakes. What else would he be doing at a porn company party?
The link to Lisa Ann’s blog is here, but you should not click if you’re under 18, or if you’re at workCLICK. There are naked people there, so don’t blame me if you see something you don’t want to.
Also… here’s a picture of Hines’ ex-wife, because I know the gossip hounds would probably go looking for it anyways.
Like the title of this blog suggests, I spend an insane amount of time watching, listening to, talking about, and reading about sports. However, only 15-20% of whats in my head actually makes it here to the site for various reasons (i.e. laziness), but this is a random nugget that I felt compelled to share.
I watch “NFL Matchup” on ESPN alot, and my eyes are always drawn to Merrill Hoge’s hair… because it looks really weird like he’s wearing a hairpiece. So I head over to google and I take a shot in the dark on Merrill Hoge’s hair and I get a few results. Yes, there are other people in the world who talk about and laugh at Merrill Hoge’s toupee.
But during that search I found something else, a review of the2003 NFL Draft. The author of this particular article thought Rex Grossman was a fine choice for Chicago, and refuted the claims that Rex would turn out to be a bust for the Bears.
“The biggest knock on Grossman was that he likes to party (who doesn’t?) and that Bill Walsh said in a Sports Illustrated article that he makes “catastrophic mistakes”. This, from the man who just hired Dennis “Mr. Catastrophic Mistake” Erickson to be the Niners head coach.
The defense rests.”
Oh boy oh boy… .was Bill Walsh right or WHAT? Rex Grossman singlehandedly lost the Super Bowl for Chicago a few years ago by committing several “catastrophic mistakes” in the biggest game of his career. If the GM in Chicago had only agreed with Walsh (who is considered one of the greatest football minds ever)…. history may have turned out differently.
