Barry the Clown

    Wednesday, April 14, 2010, 10:48 AM [General]

    Barry Bonds just doesn't know when to quit. On Monday, April 12, 2010, "Death at a Funeral" premiered, a flick where Barry can be seen hamming it up with comedian/actor Tracy Morgan. Bonds left the Major League baseball scene in 2007 for unknown reasons. Without an official conference to provide his fans with closure, Bonds hung up his cleats. When asked about addressing retirement, he told reporters that "it's not necessary."

    I for one, think that the fall of Bonds was pretty sad and as a fan of the game, I am pissed. Many may sympathize with him because of how the media treated him, appearing to force him out of baseball. But everything Bonds got he deserved. Bonds was born in california and will now die in california. This Home Grown Hero still, however, won't provide any insight into his future, or past for that matter, leaving me and all other baseball fans to fill in the blanks and answer all of the question marks that now is his career. Bonds is in serious denial, when asked about playing again he tells reporters...

    "I don't know yet.  I haven't trained that hard yet to answer that question...

    I would have to work out a little harder to give you any formal consideration."  

    The question wasn't serious Barry, we know the delusional world you live in and the media is going to do what they do best, exploit it. Thanks for the laugh.  

    All we know is that the clean and the clear isn't a solution he used to help fix the dude's acne. I bet that when it comes to steroid use in baseball, Barry throughout his career was at the forefront. When new and untraceable steroids were introduced, Barry was there. This is why he keeps his mouth shut, afraid that he might slip up and reveal some of those question marks.  

    Good Luck bro, I hope the movie does well. Seriously, I'm rooting for you.

    Longtime Eagle's workhorse booed in, and now out of Philly

    Tuesday, April 6, 2010, 11:26 AM [General]

    Over the past few weeks, the Eagle's have been shopping 6-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, and on Sunday, the team announced officially that the Eagle's have sent Donovan to the Washington Redskins.  I suppose Kevin Kolb, who also was reportedly being shopped by the team, will now take over the Eagle's starting quarterback role.  

    I can't believe how ridiculous this move is as I believe this compromises the entire foundation the Eagles have worked so hard to build over the years.  Former teammates, most notably Brian Dawkins, expressed his shock.

     

    “I was very shocked,” said Dawkins. “When you have a guy that’s playing at a level he’s still playing at, to me, you don’t get rid of the guy.”“He finally gets the receivers on the outside, and a tight end – the weapons everybody’s always talked about – and then, the next year, they send him off,” Dawkins said. “And it’s not that he ‘used to be’ anything. He’s still playing at a high level. What is he, 34? That’s young for a quarterback.”

    I can't imagine that any other quarterback could have had more success than McNabb did in his 10-year tenure with Philadelphia.  It's not like the Eagle's provided him with championship caliber teams!  

    With this move, the front office has proven themselves to be just as ruthless and pathetic as their fans.  Just as McNabb was welcomed with boo's in 1999 as Philly's round 1 draft choice, he leaves the city with just the same commotion.

    HIGH talent expected in this year's NFL Draft

    Thursday, March 25, 2010, 2:50 PM [General]

    Marijuana is making headlines for this year's NFL Draft.  Sources have revealed their concern that many players who will be entering the draft are, BLUNTly put, stoners.  NFL owners have admitted that HIGHer than usual percentage of their draft boards contain players who have had issues with reefer throughout college.  Red flags have been raised regarding those player's who have openly admitted to their past run-ins with marijuana, however due to this class's 'reefer madness', teams are unwilling to simply cross off those who come to camp with red eyes.  These team rep's have asked to remain anonymous, and admit that this is a problem that is being addressed on a team to team, player to player basis.

    "That's a topic of conversation for a lot of GMs with their owners,'' a general manager said. "You have a number of prospects who are quality people, but who might have [screwed] up early on in college. As long as it's not a habitual thing, there's more of a discussion about those players, rather than just jettisoning them off your board. Which is what a lot of teams have done in the past. But I think we're all a little more realistic these days."

    DeSean Jackson and Percy Harvin are two names that have been associated with this issue some time or another in College.  As we all know, these are two players that have excelled performance-wise early in their career.  That being said, it's hard not blame teams who choose not to pass on players who smoke grass.

    Carolina throws an interception to the Browns

    Monday, March 15, 2010, 11:48 AM [General]

    Jake Delhomme has signed a two-year deal to throw interceptions for the Cleveland Browns.  After a career that boasts 120 TD's paired with 89 interceptions, the 35-year old quarterback has found a new home.  Coming off the worst season of his career, one that was plagued by an abundance of interceptions (18), Jake is now presented with the task to lead a much less talented team than his former Panthers.  

    GOOD LUCK!!

    Too little too late...Tiger tales influence iPhone app.

    Tuesday, March 2, 2010, 10:24 AM [General]

    Tiger's are notoriously difficult to track and even more so with this new App.

    Tiger is out of sex rehab and currently checked into another rehab facility in Colorado.  I sincerely applaud his efforts that he has recently made to become a better man.  

    With that being said, a new application has made its way to the iPhone in the wake of Tigers tales.  TigerText is an App that allows the you to delete a text message at any time, even after you have sent it.  I don't think this would have solved Tiger's problems, however this may help you and I prevent a thing or two.

    Players and coaches both have a hand in Lakers win

    Wednesday, February 24, 2010, 1:26 PM [General]

    Lionel Hollins's Lakers trailed Memphis late into Tuesday's match, however, Kobe sent the Grizzlies back into hibernation by draining a game winning, three-pointer with only 4.3 seconds left.  You know that a coach really understands his team when he is able to predict the game's outcome before its end.  

    Hollins illustrates his confidence of what would transpire in the weening moments of the game.  In attempt to rely this information to his players on the court, Hollins successfully holds up 4.3 fingers to illustrate Kobe's future feat.

    T.O. models with a BIG HEAD of hair

    Friday, February 19, 2010, 12:09 PM [General]

    Even though he's not known for exactly being the model teammate, T.O. is now a model.  This guys like a circus clown, how many acts can he juggle at once?  Going into his 15th NFl career, T.O. stars in the second season of his not surprisingly worthless reality show, among a variety of other TV appearances, and now he has taken his antics to the catwalk.  Using a wig to conceal his big head, T.O. struts without a lack of confidence.

    Fighting in hockey is necessary and in this game, not optional

    Thursday, February 18, 2010, 2:54 PM [General]

    There are many things that make hockey an exciting sport, and I have to admit that fighting is one of them.  Yes you could argue that its barbaric, dangerous, and sets a bad example for children, but you would lose.  There will always be a place for the "enforcer" in the game.  Critics just need to relax; the NHL has its players under control.  Fights are usually extremely tame and short-lived anyways, besides, not everyone fights.
