Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that tomorrow will, most likely, be a slow day. Kris and I have an event that we have to attend and Gary may be the only one with time to update.

Look for everything to be back to normal on Sunday!

White Sox Land an Ace...





The Chicago White Sox have been clamoring for the services of Jake Peavy since last season's trading deadline, and he finally decided to possess a mutual feeling. The White Sox couldn't be happier, because they now became the clear leader on paper in a tight AL Central.

The San Diego Padres had exhausted nearly all the time prior to the MLB's trading deadline when they finally struck the deal wtih the White Sox. The Pads will receive four minor league pitchers in return, in hopes of bolstering their farm system.

Peavy, the 2007 Cy Young Award Winner, is currently on the shelf with a tendon issue in his ankle, but is expected to make a rehab around August 10th, and hopes to be ready to go for the stretch run.

Clinton As a Blond ...

>> Thursday, July 30, 2009







Earlier this month, pictures of Clinton Portis hit the internet with blond hair and blond beard. Luckily for Sisqo, Portis had re-dyed his hair before training camp begin. When asked why C.P. went blond in the first place, he had this to say:

"Why did I go blond?" he repeated. "I just felt like doing something different. You know, I think even with that, from what I hear, now I'm gay? I don't think there's a woman in the United States of America that would say I'm gay. So, you know, I don't hang around men, I don't live a private life, there's constantly people around me. You know, I did it because that was something that I felt like doing. At the moment it was like, 'Ohhh, I want to do something weird and different,' and that's what I did, I dyed my hair blond. You know, it wasn't an attention seeker. I actually was out of the country, I left the country after I did it, so I wasn't even over here once I did it. So it was just an experiment."

Too much attention caused him to dye it back because C.P. isn't much of an attention seeker. I guess the references to Sisqo didn't help the situation. Of course I think he looks more like Carlton Banks dressed as Macaulay Culkin.

Damn, Even Big Papi?





Ah, the wild and crazy world of Major League Baseball and the "infinite" list of PED users brought forth some very disappointing news for baseball fans, especially the Red Sox Nation. The man known affectionately as Big Papi, David Ortiz, has been confirmed as a positive PED user during the 2003 survey ran by the MLB.

Ortiz has been a primary proponent of stronger PED testing within the major league system and constantly chastised those players who were failing their random drug screenings for PED usage. However, it appears Oritz was the guilty playing innocent the entire time.

One now has to wonder how exactly the BoSox 2003 World Series title should be viewed, because both of its key components, Ortiz and Ramirez, have now been linked to PED usage during the 2003 season. Does it deserve an asterisk like all the records from this era will receive?

Odom staying put





Lamar Odom is staying with the world champion Los Angles Lakers afterall. It was well known that the Miami Heat and gaurd Dwayne Wade were trying their best to lure away Odom back to the east coast. It appeared as if this deal was going to happen, but then Jerry Buss essentially offered Odom the same contract he had turned down earlier. Only this time, Odom agreed.

This is a smart play for both the Lakers and Lamar Odom. He knows the offense and plus he now has a ring to go with this up and down career. If he had went to Miami, he would have made the playoffs but probably wouldn't have sniffed a NBA Finals' appearance.

Resigning Odom, along with the signing of Ron Artest, makes the Lakers a strong favorite to repeat as champions next year. Can the Black Mamba along with this new crazy ass teammate lead the Lakers to their 6th championship of the century?

Say it Ain't So, Snyder!





Being a Washington Redskins fan, you become used to the rumors that swirl when every big-time free agent graces the market. However, even I am in shock that the 'Skins are contemplating signing Mike Vick, and don't believe the bullshit about them not being interested at the moment. When something leaks about the Skins singing someone, it's usually the truth.

I'm all for Mike Vick coming back to the league, but the 'Skins and their fragile reputation as a big-spending franchise doesn't need the publicity that will come with this signing. They have a possible playoff contender in place and the last thing they need to do is bring in the outside distractions that will come with Mike Vick.

So, please Mike, sign somewhere else!

What is Starbury doing?





Stephon Marbury has decided to start up his own streaming internet show of himself here recently. I had heard about this and had yet to check it out yet. So I just went over to youtube and found this gem (at the bottom of the blog). This is a caption from his streaming show that shows him consuming vaseline. Yes, vaseline. He gave some kind of cracked out speech about how someone's grandma said it would cure sore throat? I guess...This might be the dumbest thing I've ever seen. Is he even getting paid to do this? It appears it's just from a web cam. Maybe Starbury is just attention starved and doing anything to create a buzz about himself again? Because he hasn't mattered on a basketball court in some time now.

Remember this is the same Marbury who left a nice young Minnesota nucleus because he couldn't accept making less money than Friggin Kevin Garnett. The same KG who has consistently been a top 5 player in the league pretty much his whole career. Something that Marbury has ever yet to sniff coming close too.

I think Kirk Lazarus said it best in Tropic Thunder, when he stated "Everybody knows you never go full retard." Listen to him Stephon, your killing your image. Check out the clip..

Phillies Land Their Ace...





You know we're not exactly inclined to talk about the sport that is known as baseball, but slow times call for desperate measures.

The Philadelphia Phillies landed another ace to bolster their rotation and increase their chances to return to the World Series. Cliff Lee will be leaving the Cleveland to join the Phillies immediately, in a deal that involved four minor-leaguers from the Phillies farm system.

Lee, who was spectacular all last season when he won the Cy Young, is putting up another impressive season with a 3.14 ERA and a 7-9 record. Teaming Lee with Cole Hamels provides Philadelphia with one of the best starting rotations in the National League and two quality number 1 starters.

Bud Selig, it's Time to Man Up!





Commissioners in today's sports world seem to relish in their suspension power (i.e. Roger Goodell) and Bud Selig is no different than the rest of the power hungry dictators. Selig continues to punish one of the greatest players the game of baseball has ever seen, even a couple of decades later!

Sure, gambling on sports is a heinous offense, but it happens everyday and goes UNNOTICED. You think Pete Rose was the first or the last to ever bet on sports while playing? Doubtful. The man has apologized and omitted to his offenses and its time he has his statue bronzed and placed in its rightful location, Cooperstown.

Quit being a punk ass bitch, Bud. Man up. Let Pete in the damn Hall of Fame!

The constant, "Should I play or should I retire?" charade that has become ridiculously played and tiring for us sports fans.

So, thank you Brett....let's hope this retirement is permanent!

Vick Reinstated ... Kinda!

>> Monday, July 27, 2009







NFL Commission Roger Goodell has reinstated Mr. PETA himself, Michael Vick, on a conditional basis. On Monday the NFL commissioner stated Vick could partake in regular season games as early as October. Vick has been reinstated with certain conditions. The ex-QB is immediately allowed to be a part of preseason practices, workouts, meetings and play in the final two preseason games as long as he can find a team to play for.

Once the NFL season is underway, Vick can be a part of all activities except games. Full reinstatement for Vick will not be considered by Goodell until October. I am personally just tired of reading and hearing about this story.

Never Woulda Thunk it, Marvin!





What is it with wide receivers and rambunctious behavior? We had heard the stories that "Starvin'" Marvin Harrison was wielding a gun and somebody got shot in the process, but it appeared that all the hoo-ha had dissipated and Marvin was in the clear, until now.

A Philadelphia man is now claiming to have seen Marvin pull the trigger, while holding two guns, If this story holds true, its a shame to see the future Hall-of-Famer putting himself in these kind of situations. We're used to believing that Marvin is the perfect teammate and a respectful individual off the field, but it seems he has put forth quite a facade, regarding his personal life.

Plax Gonna Get Served...





Plaxico Burress has never been mistaken for being an intelligent and reasonable human being, and his gun-carrying raucous in a NYC nightclub was a perfect example. While, Plax probably didn't expect to go all Cheddar Bob and shoot himself in the leg, the fact remains you don't go packin' into a crowded nightclub without dealing with the consequences.

The Manhattan DA is adamant on making sure Plax understands that consequences come from your actions. The DA is striving to make sure that Plax serves jail time for his stupidity, and, it appears, Plax seems to be willing to comply to those demands.

Plax supposedly agreed to spend a year in the pen in a form of a plea agreement, which shocked me and most likely shocked you, as well!

Have fun with the hooligans, Plaxico! I'm sure you'll fit right in!

A Bad Trend Developing...





A scary trend is beginning to develop in the world of athletics. It seems like the mysterious man carrying a sling blade, wearing a black cape and referring to himself as death, has set up shop within the world of sports retirees. Vernon Forrest is the latest to feel the wrath of the caped man.

Forrest was killed in Atlanta following an attempted car-jacking. Vernon was, apparently, at a gas station in Atlanta when two thugs attempted to steal his Jaguar. Forrest then attempted to chase the suspects down, with his own gun in hand, and was shot 7 to 8 times with an automatic weapon.

Forrest had an attempted comeback fight planned, following a prolonged injury that caused his title to be vacated, and was expected to begin training August 1st.

The Blazers continue to add some nice pieces...





The Portland Trailblazers have continued putting together a solid nucleus of young basketball players and now this new signing may help put them over the top next year. The Blazers have signed Andre Miller to a 3 year, 21 million dollar deal.

Miller is no spring chicken like a lot of the other players in Portland, but he might just be what that team needs the most. He could bring some veteran leadership to this young squad and do it from the most important position on the court. Miller has always been known as a gym rat ever since he entered the league in 1999 by the Cleveland Cavs. This was back in the days when the Cavs were rocking the blue and black jerseys and bout 30 wins a year.

Back to Portland real quick though. The most important thing that Andre Miller is going to bring to the Blazers is the fact that Brandon Roy shouldn't have to handle the ball nearly as much anymore and can expend more energy getting open looks. If he gets open, I gaurantee Miller will find him.

Meth Head Mayfield Gets the Boot, Again...

>> Friday, July 24, 2009



Jeremy Mayfield and his meth smokin' ass has once again been banned from racing for NASCAR, following his second failed drug test.

Mayfield, who must always be high, continues to state that both of the drug tests by NASCAR were used as a setup to frame his illiterate, junkie behind. He even continues to claim this nonsense after his step mother came out and verified his meth usage!

I knew meth heads were crazy and ridiculous, but he's taken it to a whole new level! I mean, c'mon! Who wants to be on a race track with some junkie after he's hit the pipe and is attempting to drive a car at around 200 MPH. Damn crackheads are always trying to ruin someone else's good time!

Are You Stupid or Something, Steve?





Apparently, Steve Spurrier is stupid or just holds a grudge from hell. Spurrier has decided to leave off Tim Tebow off his First Team All-SEC team, in honor of Jevan Snead.

Now, I will admit, Snead is a tremendous quarterback and has a chance to do great things at Ole Miss this year, but, c'mon lets get real, Tim Tebow has a chance to go down as the greatest quarterback to ever play college football! We're talking about a kid who should already own two heisman's, has two national titles and has the opportunity to add another to each of those totals this coming season.

Yet, Spurrier wants to leave him off the ballot? I think Steve must have been drinking too much sauce during his last golf outing at Augusta. And, don't give me this crap about it was his assistant coach that made the decision! There isn't an assistant coach in America who is that gosh damn retarded!

So, Steve, welcome to the group of teams that now has pissed off the most dangerous weapon in all of college football. Enjoy your 73-6 beat-down that is coming this season. Idiot.

There had been much speculation regarding the meeting between Vick and Goodell and when exactly it would take place, but it appears that Goodell made the right decision and acted quickly.

Now, the question remains, will someone actually give Mike a contract? What team is willing to take the risk and deal with the scrutiny from the animal rights activists, such as PETA?

Mr. Perfect....





Mark Buehrle made a little history today when he became one of only five pitchers to pitch a no-no and a perfect game during his career. Buehrle was bailed out by his center fielder Dwayne Wise, who made a miraculous catch with no outs in the ninth. Gabe Kapler came to the plate and was ready to play spoiler when he blasted a pitch that was headed over the centerfield fence, but Wise made a leaping catch, robbing Kapler of a home-run.

Buehrle is widely considered one of the most underrated pitchers in the game and he consistently performs with a smart pitching style, not the flash that is so coveted during today's game.

To give you an idea of just how rare of an accomplishment a perfect game is...Buehrle is just the 18th pitcher in major league history to throw a perfect game, and the first since Randy Johnson in 2004!

Congratulations to Mark Buehrle on an amazing performance!

NFL Draft expanding...





The NFL Draft is expanding from a two day event into a three day one. The significance of this is that the first round of the draft will now be shown in primetime on Thursday night on both ESPN and the NFL Channel. Goodell decided to make this move to make the draft "more accessible" to the fans and he might have a point.

As a huge NFL fan, I usually get up saturday morning and don't bother leaving my couch and television until 11:30 P.M. or 12:00 A.M. that night. Then getting up the next morning, and repeating the same process. I love the NFL draft almost as much as I love the regular season and playoffs. It just brings a new fresh exciting feeling that your team, whoever they may be, can turn it around with a great draft and offseason.

Then again, there are those drafts where your favorite team drafts Darrius Heyward-Bey instead of B.J. Raji or Michael Crabtree for that matter, who were both available. Then decide to draft the 70th ranked safety in the 2nd round and neither major broadcasts has any tapes on the guy.

Okay, sorry that I got off on a tangent there. In reality, I think this is a great move for the NFL and will only help draw more attention to the sport. Even though, we all know it is already the most popular professional sport these days.

Well, apparently they didn't manage to get all the footage, because two versions hit the interwebs today, including Ebaums World and their exclusive video.

T.J. Boycotts Madden 2010








T..J. Houshmanzadeh is finished with Madden! Well ... at least until EA Sports shows his ego some respect. Houshmanzadeh, rated a freaking 91 on the game, is boycotting Madden until his abilities are respected by EA Sports. Wow!

T.J. stated:


"I understand I averaged 10 yards a catch, but it's the offense, not me. I'm not playing Madden no more until they get my rating right. ... I used to be the best in the world at Madden. I'm going to miss not playing it, but until they do me right, I'm not playing it any more."

He is rated a 91! I think that is generous by EA Sports to give T.J. such a high rating. He deserves more of a rating closer to 87 or 86. Then like any other person with a huge ego ... he blames the offense. Who in the hell does he think he is?

From reading his statement, it seems Houshmanzadeh has been boycotting other things as well ... like his grammar.

Alonzo speaks ...







When Alonzo Harris gives advice ... you better listen and take that advice to heart. When Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver met Denzel Washington during the NBA's Western Conference finals, the two time Oscar winner didn't compliment the wideout; he called him out.

Ochocinco had this to say about their encounter:

"He got on me about the way I handled myself last offseason,” Ochocinco recalled in a phone conversation last week. “He wasn’t being gentle. He said, ‘You know what? You need to straighten up and stop fussin’ about something you have no control over. Make it fun again because it sure looks better when you do it that way.’ That’s all I needed to hear, especially from somebody like him.”

After the pep talk, Ocho vows to be refocused this year and make football fun again. He believes this year will be a record breaking year for him. All he needed was a little advice from Alonzo.

Ben Roethlisberger Will Punch A Woman....





Ben Roethlisberger has joined the world of sexual assaultin' athletes. Andrea McNulty, a casino employee in Las Vegas, is filing legal action against Big Ben, but no criminal charges appear to be imminent. Ben's attorney had this to say regarding the allegations....

"This weekend Andrea McNulty served Ben Roethlisberger with a civil complaint accusing him of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Ben has never sexually assaulted anyone; especially Andrea McNulty. The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct. If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated.

"Ben will not be baited into a public discussion about his personal life, but we will defend him vigorously. The limited value that Ms. McNulty derived from public disclosure of these viciously false allegations is the only value she will ever receive from Ben in this case."


After seeing the photo that I posted with this blog, I can understand why this chick may have turned down the advances of Big Ben, because apparently he looks like an orge when intoxicated. All jokes aside, these allegations against Big Ben will continue to stick and haunt him throughout his career. Shame on you, Ben.

Mike Vick is officially back on the street. Sure his punishment was unfair and ridiculous by nature, but the man is still a dog-hating felon. As a recent purchaser of a brand new boxer pup, I've come to understand why people were so hard on the dog beater!

However, putting all personal vendettas aside, its time Vick makes his return to the league and showcases that unbelievable athleticism that made him the NFL's most popular player. Goodell needs to make the logical decision and let the man earn a living with his God-given talents.

So, I say it's time to free Mike. Let the man play ball, not work some dirty ass construction job with Pablo and Javier down on the eastern coast of Virginia. Join in on the comments section and let us know what your thoughts are on Mike's possible return to the NFL?

Nash Inks Extension...





Steve Kerr has attempted to resurrect a relationship with his fan base in the Valley of the Sun by inking Steve Nash to a two-year contract extension worth about 20 million.

The two-time MVP helped restore a competitive nature and brought a flash and dash style to a team that was slipping into mediocrity. The Suns, after Nash's signing, quickly became one of the most popular franchises in the NBA due to their up and down pace and bringing high-scoring offenses back to the forefront.

Hopefully Kerr realizes what he has in Nash and lets this team attempt to play to the best of its abilities instead of turning them into a poor-man's version of the San Antonio Spurs. If, and thats a big if, they resign Amare to go along side Nash, the Suns still have the ability to be a competitive team in the Western Conference.
