The Red Sox must lose on purpose…

25 10 2007

I swear. This is the only way they CAN win I think, after winning 13-1 in game 1 of the World Series because I know they are promptly going to lose the next three. Boston just loves those 3-1 holes for some reason, it’ s probably some sort of Red Sox fetish. Heck, I’d say it’s their postseason game plan:

1) Humiliate the opposing team in the first game of the series. By double-digits preferably. Oh and at least let them score 1 run for pity’s sake. Let them feel good for 1/3 of an inning.

2) The opposing team is naturally going to be fired up afterwards but, hey, it’d be more of an excuse for us to lose the next 3 games. Relax, chill, break out the margaritas in the dug-out, go nuts.  David Ortiz will be flashing his Fox Sports described “Jack O’ Lantern” grin, Manny Ramirez will still have the gayest nickname in professional sports (THE MAN-RAM..god) and both Youkalis and Varitek will still look like the Brawny Man (pre-2004).

3) Wake up in the morning, get out the ice cold cans of whoop ass out of the cooler and proceed with winning games 5-7.

4) Smile, wave, on victory floats. Repeat. 

The Red Sox don’t make history….they pre-plan it.  
 





The Serbian Gangster

10 09 2007

Darko Millicic is fast approaching Ron Artest-like infamy with his latest diatribe directed at FIBA refs. Check it out here and you will discover one of the most savage one-liners that would make the FCC ban him til 9999 AD.  Oh, and before he and the rest of the Serbian National team got crushed in the European Championships going 0-3, here is what he had to say:

“We’ll destroy them all – Spaniards, Greeks, Lithuanians, Russians, Frenches, Italians… All of them! They’re good, but we can demolish them all. Spain is not unbeatable. I like to play against Pau Gasol, he’s soft. If we win Gold medal in Spain, I’ll take my shirt off and then I will jump from Parliament terrasse. After that I dont need anything else in my life”.

Maybe he lost his mind while warming the bench in Detroit…

 





Celtics land KG!

1 08 2007

Welcome back to legitimacy Boston! Not only do they land Ray Allen on draft day, they now have arguably the best PF playing in the NBA today. Pierce, Allen, and Garnett= best trio talent-wise in the league (other than the Spurs’ Parker, Ginobilli, and Duncan).  The funny thing is, they practically traded their ENTIRE team for a soon-to-peak KG. Trading away Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Ryan Gomes, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff, two future conditional 1st round draft picks, and some cash considerations for a Mega-star player  is like burning down the entire house and praying to god that whatever is left plus the major upgrade on the master suite will last for years to come. They’re definitely rolling the dice on this one but if they can fill-out their bench with volunteers then they’ll be alright. 





Spider-man 3, Rockets, Golden Boy, all suck…

6 05 2007

1.) Saw Spider-man 3, the whole time I felt like I was watching the wrong movie…going in I knew it wasn’t going to be that good but I walked out feeling if I had stayed home and watched AVP and X-Men: The Last Stand back to back I would’ve felt the same but without having to drive to the movie theater or pay $1o. And whoever said there was ton of action, you must mean “talking and crying” because that was basically 3/4 of the movie while the rest of the movie was Spider-man or a villain being thrown into brick or steel walls or getting hit with metal pipes. I honestly tried to shut my brain down but there must be something like “negative stupidity” because I felt like I lost a few IQ points after walking out of the theater. 

 2.) Rockets lose their 1st round series with the Jazz. The team with the deeper bench outlasted the team  with the more talented starting five. And this series just proves how T-Mac just isn’t a trancending type of player or a “closer” type like Kobe or Dirk…oh wait…

 3.)Oscar De LaHoya lost to Mayweather. Nothing much to say but I was just rooting for Golden Boy because Mayweather came across as being an arrogant, cocky prick. I don’t root for pricks.





Woerriors no more…Bulls are cooking over Heat…Dice K…

28 04 2007

Got a chance to watch the “New Warriors” in action in their Game 3 win 109-91 against the Mavs tonight and man can they fly up and down the court…I think they’re probably faster than the Suns also (If those two teams were ever locked in a matchup it might as well be a “Matrix” sequel). But, I’m not entirely sold on them yet considering if a team can bog them down into a half court game then it would be curtains for them. Dallas looked absolutely SLOW against them both on offense and defense and I’m not sure if it was total failure in preparation or Golden State just ran them out of the gym because the fat lady was already singing in full glory at mid-court before the first half was even finished.  What I do know is if the Warriors can keep this pace you are going to see the 3rd upset of an 8th seed over the 1st seed in NBA history- guaranteed. Definitely the story of the 1st round this year.

 But what’s almost as surprising are the Bulls who have a 3-0 lead over the Heat after winning tonight 104-96. Wow…I didn’t even imagine the possibility of Miami being swept out of the first round but it looks like without a 100% Wade and a complete balance attack by the Bulls it could become a reality.  Did you see that block by Andres Nocioni over Udon-is Haslem?!?Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~

Nets go vinsane and drop kick the Raptors…102-89. Jason Kidd posted a triple-double on one leg with 16 pts, 16 rebs, and 19 ast. Don’t know why Chris Bosh is doing so sub-par, he should be feasting on the likes of Mikki Moore, Jason Collins, and Josh Boone…well known delicacies in his country.   The least surprising result tonight though.

Oh and if you’ve watched Dragonball before this article will bring a grin to your face…

Something that I found amusing since my uncle and I were NY Knicks fans while I was growing up and Patrick Ewing was our favorite player and just thought it was funny how it poked fun at Nate Rob also:

Hottest wives of the NBA

8 08 2006

Check out the page HERE

Found this site browsing for news about the new $14.98 “Starbury” shoe that he’s releasing in mid-August. Which, by the way, is an upstanding act by a guy I always thought was a bastard both on and off the court but I found out he’s actually a pretty generous guy and doing things for charity and the public. So, I guess I’ll give him kudos for that…but I still think his game is as cheap as his new kicks.

BTW- I’m not surprised that NBA stars have hot wives but geezus, Peja’s wife is smoking. Did he find her in some hidden corner of Yugoslavia? He must be a lucky man when he’s not raining 3s.
