These are based on the Natty Sci Fantasy Baseball stats as of right now (July 2nd)

Yeah, so at least 4th of July weekend has been good so far. On Friday night we had a hotel party that I believe reached the sci status...people streaking, people projectile vomiting and the guy the passed out early woke up and got laid (lucky bastard). Then last night I was working security at the Poison/Cinderella concert and I met Ron Jeremy. That was pretty cool.

stew on Sunday, July 02, 2006 at 2:46 PM

Next week we are doing security for Ozzfest and later in the month I've been told we get to do security for Pearl Jam and DMB. I love this job.

For Big Jay,
The teaser trailer to Transformers the movie is out.
http://www.transformersmovie.com/
(but in my opinion. the trailer sucks.)

Man, I can't wait for the new Mencia shows. They just showed a preview, and I can barely stop laughing enough to type this out. Let me try to capture the comedic genius in writing:
"You know who mexicans hate? Mexicans! That's why they are leaving Mexico."

Man, I know that's probably the best the season has to offer, but if the jokes are half as funny as that we are in good hands. Hold on, I need to catch my breath.

Don't know about tonight, but I will be there next Monday since I am on vacation

joe on Monday, July 03, 2006 at 9:50 AM

Tomorrow, show up whenver. I'll be there all day. Bring whatever you want to eat and drink. Mark is making Queso and I am making chicken wings. Other then that, the grill will be lit. We need some side dishes, some meat and some tortilla chips. Perhaps we should consider using the neighbors potluck buffet this year and take our food down there and share. Just a thought. No clue on the T-shirts.

What sucked about that trailer, Marc? It was a teaser. What do you want? And Baron, I liked superman. I was a little long, and was pretty dark, but still enjoyable. However, I enjoy most movies, so, whatever. I'm just saying.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 04, 2006 at 2:46 PM

I disagree...I liked Superman.

FoxTrot openly taking a swing at the Family Circus:
http://news.yahoo.com/comics/uclick...t_uc/ft20060702

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 04, 2006 at 5:50 PM

Actually Phil, one of the commenters pointed out that it is in fact only a 540 dunk; the other 180 occurs on the way down, which does not lend to the rotation. It is still one of the most badass things I've ever seen on a ball-court; after the cheerleaders.

Ok, superman didn't suck; I just didn't like it. Way too dark for superman; some on, woman beating in front of a kid? Lex Luthor's act (without spoilers) when we got terrorists cutting people's heads off? Just a little too vicious for Superman, even for me (which is saying a lot).
Second, see the clip I posted; that sums up my problems with the story. Brock would like me to believe this movie takes place before 3, where Clark and Lois got it on while he was human. However, the kid is nowhere to be found in 3 or 4; so it just isn't happening for me.
Next, few things are certain in life. A Bosworth never winning an Oscar is one of them. The bitch couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Plus, she's fugly. Stacked like a 11 year-old boy with a 40-year old face. She's fugly.
Kevin Spacey was good.
Finally, way overdoing it with the climactic score. I'm sure the script went something like this:
Superman enters room (climactic score)
Superman sees picture of Lois family (climactic score)
Jimmy informs him its her family (sad music)
Jimmy informs him she's not married (climactic score)
Superman looks up at the room (dramatic music)
Superman picks up pencil (climactic score)

It just wasn't my movie; and I'm sure if everyone gives it some time, they will agree. It is similar to the Star Wars effect. Every one of the first 3 episodes got good reviews from the people in the theatre; it hits DVD, and everybody agrees with me....they sucked. Bad movie making; which is what Superman is. Not a bad movie, just poorly made.

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 04, 2006 at 5:54 PM

I also should have placed a reverse bet on the World Cup. I've gotten every single pick wrong since the knock-out round began, except for a couple of the round of 16s. But the quarterfinals on, all dead wrong.
If this trend continues, we shall see Portugal in the finals.
uuuugggghhhhh.....

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 12:22 AM

Isaac - Superman Returns picks up after #2...so it is as if #3 and #4 didn't exist....and they shouldn't for the record! So that would explain why no kid in 3 and 4.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 12:23 AM

And for the record, when someone tells me my car is a necessary casualty....that doesn't jive well with me.

Jay on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 2:39 AM

Yeah, I'm still kind of pissed that joe's neighbor lectured me. I don't need that. Is your car damaged at all?

well, it sounds like there's a story involving cars from yesterday, so what happened??

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 9:33 AM

i know i'm not the only fucker at work today....

Phil on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 9:34 AM

I'm here, but I don't know the story.

Douglas, your 13 year old girl fan club was there last night and they were wrestling in the pool again

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 9:44 AM

no no, that's Bmac's fan club, he's the one that was jumping in with them last year and throwing water balloons at them, so'd I miss anything big? any slamball? any pukers? anybody have the guts enough to go hit on the minors? their moms?

Phil on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 10:17 AM

I think the rain kept anything too crazy from going on. I was outside most of the time, so who knows went on inside with those guys.

But B-Mac, Cuban, Joe and a neighbor played slam ball. B-Mac threw the neighbor off only once. Random old people showed up on BMX bikes and asked joe if his fireworks were legal or illegal and warned us of cops patrolling the area...and uh, that was about it from when I was there.

I heard that a neighbor called her mom when he car got hit by the slingshot. Yup, pretty low key.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 10:29 AM

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 10:36 AM

so what happened with you car wes?

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 10:44 AM

Well when Abby and I was walking back to my car (my car was infront of the house where Kristen's car was at), I saw my car had firework remnants all over my car and there was a freaking patio firepit, which they were apparently using as their launching point. So as I walk up to my car I turn to the guy and ask him if he caught my car on fire (the entire hood of my car and windshield was covered in debris) and his response was "It was a necessary casualty".

My response to that was "A necassary casualty by who's standards....yours or mine?"

So he tells me that he was infront of his house and lighting fireworks and my car was fine and apparently Abby saw a lot of people leaning on Kristens and maybe our car (not really sure about that) so we get into this big spill of well it is just a common courtesy thing to send someone down there and ask us to move our cars, which we would have obliged to do. He says some more shit and offers to give me cash to detail my car, which I tell him no it's not a money thing....my wife and I make enough money and we work hard for our money so we just don't want people tearing up our stuff...re-iterating it isn't a money thing it is simply being cordial and being a good neighbor.

At this point he starts talking about how he is sure I am a stud and going on and on, and being very condenscending towards me (which for the record I hate this more than anything and the only one I let get away with this is Philco...well because he is a condenscending shit and that is who he is so be it). At this point, I am sure my blood is really boiling but I am trying to keep my cool because let's be honest, when the cops show up and I fail the breath test I am going to jail for public intoxication regardless the fact I am being the cool one and this pony tailed wearing freak is an ass bag. So he continues to talk down to me and he says something, and he was like nah man that was sarcasm....ah I am much more a literal guy, so I get in his face and throw my hands out and ask him if he wants to go right now? And then his kid appears, so I back off, and someone runs in to gets his wife...and she comes running out so now I am like great. This is turning into a whole fiasco. So we say some more stuff and she whispers something into his ear (which I am guessing is get his lisence plate number) because he moves around to the back of my car tring to read my lisence plate number so I walk back there and yell out "I'm not that hard to find I am over here all the time, and my lisence plate is a Bellarmine Plate #2509".

"Nah man I am not looking for that!".....and I am thinking whatever ass bag.

So basically whenever something happens to his house or his car or something, I am to blame, even though I will have nothing to do with it....it simply isn't worth my time for this ass bag!

Phil on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 10:50 AM

http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps...EVIEWS/60606009

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:07 AM

that's shitty, if it was me i woulda hit him, my babymama works at a law firm and gets me outta shit like that, she can for you too. that really is bullshit, u don't explode fireworks next to someone's car, that's fucking common sense. so the guy who said "it's a necessary casualty," was that the dad or the kid? i could see a smartass kid saying something stupid like that, and then you chokeslam him, but a grown ass man saying that to another man is total bullshit

Phil on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:07 AM

Anytime you are leaving a party involving slamball, water ballon slingshots, tuscan mules, joe in a wife beater holding a beer lighting illegal fireworks with 13 year olds, fat 14 year old girls wrestling in a kiddie pool, a potato gun and custom t-shirts to remember the event and look at a bunch of people by your car and think "Man, what a bunch of a white trash fucks" you know that you've stumbled upon some real winners.

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:12 AM

i am sorry i missed it, but when the daughter's sick the world kinda has to stop. typically though white trash fucks are the ones that are more thoughtful of other people's property, b/c they generally don't have money and know the value of a dollar.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:17 AM

Douglas - that was the grown ass 30 something year old man and I was very close to hitting him. He said something like his wife was a lawyer, which basically means paralegal to me, but regardless I decided not to hit him.

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:20 AM

lawyers don't live in that neighborhood, at least not good ones

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:22 AM

Why do you think I said, which translates into a paralegal.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:23 AM

But she did appear somewhat young....like early 30's so I am guessing maybe she could be a lawyer because all lawyers don't make tons of money.

Joanna on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 11:28 AM

Hey I was being good, this guy was a complete dick.....I think he basically tried to scare Abby and I by saying...my wife is a lawyer tactic and he thought he was a lot older than us. In reality he might have been early 30's so within 7 years of me. He was very condenscending and trying to buy us out....which is funny....but whatever.

I drove back in the Camdens of Oxmoor just looking at apartments and they looked very nice. I am trying to find other apartments that are close to my work so it would save me in gas money.

Phil on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 1:38 PM

Camden's at Oxmoor was nice. I think sensenbrenner and I didn't go there because it was $100 cheaper at Mallard Crossing and Mallard Crossing had a washer and dryer.

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 1:52 PM

mallard crossing really is a pretty good place to live, you're close to everything, plus it's a very short drive from joe's place, which is good when you shouldn't be driving

Phil on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 2:02 PM

The problem with mallard crossing is that the carpet is pure shit.

douglas on Wednesday, July 05, 2006 at 2:11 PM

Ifind itfunny that the Hasselhoff video has the steering wheelon the wrong side (or at least he is sitting on the wrong side.) Might be okay for those crazy Germans, but the show started in the U.S. You might claim Hasselhoff Germany, but we claim KITT.

Furthermore is Hasselhoff hoping for musical sucess in America or merely wanting to do a similar thing to how people love William Shatner music video things?

Phil on Thursday, July 06, 2006 at 9:27 AM

Surprisingly, this wasn't in indiana:
4000 block of Parthenia Ave. A man said he went to his ex-girlfriend's house to try to reconcile with her and got into a fight with a naked man there about 1 p.m. June 23. The ex-boyfriend ran off and the naked man got into a vehicle and tried to run him over, hitting him twice and injuring his back and stomach

I had Dr. Zehnder at Trinity, and he's a real good teacher, will keep you entertained with all his sayings and making fun of dumb people. Don't make fun of his ZZtop belt buckle or fall alseep in his class. I once seen the man go nuts over someone that fell asleep. He picked up all the guy's books and threw them out the second story room, including his Ti-82 calculator. Then he grabbed the guys desk and threw it down the hallway, and told the guy to go to the principal's office. I know this is college and different, but I still remember him ripping this 17 year old. Good times.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 06, 2006 at 11:49 PM

Always sunny in Philly is a great show, even though I have only seen bits and pieces of it. I am pissed though because they are moving it to mainstream network, so I am sure it will lose its' luster.

The shoe camps are goingon this week for HS basketball players and word on the street be that OJ Mayo is thinking of saying the heck with Kansas State and going to verbal to USC Trojans. He is also, talking with other big time players and trying to build a recruiting class better than the Fab 5 so they can take home a championship too.

Brock on Friday, July 07, 2006 at 9:34 AM

I wouldn't bother following Mayo, he's not going to decide on a school until the last minute. He's getting so much attention right now. He's gonna milk this for all its worth. That's gonna translate into a monster shoe contract in the future. He's just toying with all these schools. Hell, he's mentioned Florida... they weren't even in the picture before. I think enjoys getting his ass smootched by these big time programs, so I wouldn't be surprised to hear teams like Texas, Cal, St. Johns, and other programs with shady practices get announced as possibles.

douglas on Friday, July 07, 2006 at 9:37 AM

'always sunny' is fucking hilarious, i watched a couple episodes last week, including the one you're talking about where they hit their friend with the car. also, where danny devito robs his ex-wife's dog, they toilet paper the business next door, and proceed to light the bag of dog poo on fire and throw it thru the front door, hence burning down the building. I didn't hear they're changing networks, but you're right, wes, that would be no good. If it goes mainstream they won't be able to get away with anything. I don't know if any of you noticed this while watching, but they dropped the "shit" bomb several times, something they definitely can't do on a real network.

douglas on Friday, July 07, 2006 at 9:42 AM

and of course them making the terrorist tape was an instant classic as well, something i can't believe any show (other then family guy/south park) would have the balls to do.

Phil on Friday, July 07, 2006 at 9:45 AM

The USC thing seem pretty credible. That isn't exactly an internet rumor, its been all over ESPN and other sites the past few days. I haven't heard the fab 5 rumor, but that makes no sense. Why anyone would even let 5 freshmen that would probably leave early for the NBA into their school. It would kill the school's APR which would force them to loose 2 scholarships for god knows how long. But apparently tournaments are always contacting USC about playing next season.

And wes, where did you see that they were moving it to Fox? I know they ran an episode to promote it (which had quite a few *BEEPS*) but I looked around on the internet and it seems they are quite happy to leave it on FX with all their other original shows.

I'm not saying the USC thing isn't credible, but until it comes from the horse's mouth, its still just rumor. The kid doesn't have to committ to anything, so he can string along the schools and media as long as he wants. For all we know, he could continue building this frenzy to the point where he could sit out a year, sign a shoe contract, and basically just train for the NBA. Trust me... I've heard enough "sure things" when it comes to recruiting to know that no one is a lock until the LOI is signed.

"Second, Penny Hardaway was really, REALLY good. We forget this now, but he made consecutive first-team All-NBA's before he turned 25. Ten years later, he's known to an entire generation of fans under 25 as "the dude from 'Blue Chips.' " Kinda weird how that turned out."

1: Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

2: It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances:
(a) When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
(b) The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse.
(c) After wrecking your boss's car.
(d) One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into "The Crying Game".
(e) When she is using her teeth.

3: Any Man who brings a camera to a bachelor party may be legally killed and eaten by his buddies.

4: Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

5: If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever unless you actually marry her.

6: Moaning about the brand of free beer in a buddy's fridge is forbidden. However complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

7: No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your buddy's birthday is strictly optional. At that point, you must celebrate at a strip bar of the birthday boy's choice.

8: On a road trip, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.

9: When stumbling upon other guys watching a sporting event, you may ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

10: You may flatulate in front of a woman only after you have brought her to climax. If you trap her head under the covers for the purpose of flatulent entertainment, she's officially your girlfriend.

Phil on Friday, July 07, 2006 at 4:04 PM

11: It is permissible to drink a fruity alcohol drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach... and it's delivered by a topless model and only when it's free.

12: Only in situations of moral and/or physical peril are you allowed to kick another guy in the nuts.

13: Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.

14: Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Ever. Issue closed.

15: If a man's fly is down, that's his problem, you didn't see anything.

16: Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports watchers.

17: A man in the company of a hot, suggestively dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.

18: Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both, that's just greedy.

19: If you compliment a guy on his six-pack, you'd better be talking about his choice of beer.

20: Never join your girlfriend or wife in discussing a friend of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

Phil on Friday, July 07, 2006 at 4:04 PM

21: Phrases that may NOT be uttered to another man while lifting weights:
a) Yeah, Baby, Push it!
b) C'mon, give me one more! Harder!
c) Another set and we can hit the showers!

22: Never talk to a man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: i.e., both urinating, both waiting in line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

23: Never allow a telephone conversation with a woman to go on longer than you are able to have sex with her. Keep a stopwatch by the phone. Hang up if necessary.

24: The morning after you and a girl who was formerly "just a friend" have carnal, drunken monkey sex, the fact that you're feeling weird and guilty is no reason for you not to nail each other again before the discussion occurs about what a big mistake it was.

25: It is acceptable for you to drive her car. It is not acceptable for her to drive yours.

26: Thou shalt not buy a car in the colors of brown, pink, lime green, orange or sky blue.

27: The girl who replies to the question "What do you want for Christmas?" with "If you loved me, you'd know what I want!" gets an Xbox. End of story.

28: There is no reason for guys to watch Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever. We've all heard about people having guts or balls. But do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition of each is listed below:
"GUTS" is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to say, "are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?"
"BALLS" is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, "You're next!"

We hope this clears up any confusion

OHSAA: Walker ineligible
BY TOM GROESCHEN | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

North College Hill basketball star Bill Walker has been ruled ineligible for the 2006-07 school year.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association ruled that Walker has exhausted his eligibility based on a ninth-grade year at Rose Hill Christian in Ashland, Ky., in the 2002-03 school year.

Walker was listed as a freshman at Rose Hill during two semesters of the 2002-03 season and is the country’s No. 2-ranked high school senior, by some scouting reports, while his teammate, O.J. Mayo is No. 1.

OHSAA bylaws stipulate that a student-athlete has eight semesters to participate in athletics, from the time a student begins ninth grade. According to Rose Hill, Walker was considered a ninth-grader when he transferred from Rose Hill to the NCH district in February 2003.

But Walker was enrolled by NCH as an eighth-grader, and administrators believed he would be eligible to play four years of varsity basketball (2003-04 season through 2006-07.

Walker has been at NCH the past six semesters, and his two semesters playing at Rose Hill would give him eight semesters since ninth grade.
NCH, according to athletic director Joe Nickel, believed Walker was an eighth-grader when he enrolled at NCH in February 2003.

Walker played in 16 varsity basketball games as a freshman at Rose Hill from Dec.3, 2002, to Jan.25, 2003.

DWM (Driving While Masturbating)

Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin was served with a civil suit accusing him of crashing his Escalade into a parked car in front of a supermarket because he was drunk and watching a pornographic DVD.
Griffin said a day after the accident (which occurred in May) that he crashed his car because he was reaching for a cell phone that had fallen off his lap. The complaint alleges the crash occurred because he was "under the influence of alcohol" and masturbating while watching pornography on a TV set in his dashboard.

The suit alleges "Defendant Griffin was under the influence of alcohol and negligently not paying attention to the direction of travel ahead of him due in part to the fact he was watching a pornographic DVD which was displayed on a mounted in-dash DVD player, located near the steering column, in his Escalade video. He was manually manipulating his genitals which he described to a witness, after the accident, as “jacking off.” DVD jackets with pornographic titles “Anal Action” and “Privates” were seen in the driver/passenger area of the vehicle. The items were viewed by the officers at the scene, whereupon they laughed."

The plaintiffs claim the cops didn't conduct a sobriety test even though Griffin was visibly drunk. He can allegedly be heard and seen on the store's video and audio recorders saying "I'm drunk" and "I'm fucked up" and saying "whatever" 69 times in 24 minutes. He also put his sweatshirt on inside out.
The plaintiffs also blame the Timberwolves claiming they tried to get his Escalade out of impound to remove to the porn.

and, oh joe, you would've loved rush limbaugh this afternoon, the guy filling in for him kept getting calls about the world cup, and finally he went off on soccer, talking about how nobody cares in the U.S., how the U.S. will never be good b/c all our best athletes play something fun, some caller said 'you just don't understand soccer,' to which the guy replied 'what's not to understand, you kick the ball across the field and try to score.' Another guy said soccer is better than amer. football b/c in football you actually only play about five minutes, the rest is in huddles and shit, to which the guy responded, 'yeah, and it's amazing how football players actually manage to score in those five minutes.' It was hilarious, I wish I could've recorded it.

joe on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 4:20 PM

Phil on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 4:47 PM

That guy on Rush's show is right. Take a look at sports played internationally like baseball, hockey, golf and basketball. You rarely, if ever, see a non-american playing those sports at a professional level. And it would just be rediculous to think that maybe if other countries best athletes didn't play soccer and rugby that maybe they could be good at football. That'd just be silly. I mean, those rugby guys are such wusses that they aren't even worried about getting hit so they play with no pads! And those soccer guys, no way could their speed and elusiveness translate into any possition in the NFL.

And the scoring in soccer! Man, I need scoring to follow a sport otherwise there isn't anything worth watching. If you ask me, the only baseball worth watching are games where one team scores at least 15 runs. Otherwise its like they aren't doing anything out there! Boring! I watched a pitcher throw to first base 9 times trying to get a guy out and they never got him! Why even try? And don't get me started on bunting, defensive positioning or pitchers that get guys to ground out instead of striking them out. Hit a homerun! Give 'em the heater! They shoot fireworks off after homeruns so I know to go "yay!"

Now, give me a sport like cricket! 300 points! Now there is a sport that's good. Look at all those points. And bowling too! Man, they score like 800 points in that sometimes! Woooooooohooo!

Green Baron on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 4:54 PM

Although I agree with you totally Phil, I will have to say something about Rugby. Yah, they get their asses kicked playing without pads, but the tackling is different. In rugby, tackling the guy doesn't do shit. you need to get the ball. In football, you're just out to kill the guy; who cares about the ball; it'll come out on its own.
Sorry, it irks me when people try to say rugby players are tougher (or sarcastic when opposite) because they don't wear pads. In a sport with a 100% injury rate (american football); I would say the pads are a necessity and it doesn't mean American football players are less tough than rugby players. I know that wasn't what you were saying; but I'm just ranting.

douglas on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 4:58 PM

Phil on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 5:01 PM

Professional bowling is a composite score of three games so the perfect score is really like 900.

Woah, woah... Douglas cuts Cuban's hair... no one is gonna go after that.

I'm just sayin'. I buzz, maybe... but anything more, you go to a barber.... I don't want my freinds' hands all over my head like that.

u already get paid to do talk on here all day, might as well get paid to watch basketball

douglas on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 6:02 PM

i cut joe and bmac's hair too buddy, i haven't paid for a haircut in about 8 years

douglas on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 6:03 PM

and it's with clippers, not with scissors and shit, i don't massage scalps and shampoo their fucking hair

I guess it really doesn't matter... all you guys wear hats anyway.

Anything where you can end a game in a 0-0 tie is retarded. Also, why doesn't basketball do double overtime as a free throw competition?

Your speaking to the guy that used andro

adrian on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 8:40 AM

The one thing that drives me crazy in baseball and basketball are the fuckers who do their ritual before stepping into home plate or before shooting a free throw:

Nomar Garciaparro. Before he steps up to the plate he fucks around with both of his batting gloves, touches all of his wristbands every single time he is getting ready to bat. (glove-and-pad-adjustment ) It woldn't be bad if he took a second or two to adjust his gloves. But he spends like two minutes to go through his ritual.

David (I can't speak English) Ortiz: Spits in his fucking hands and claps.

Jason Kidd: before shooting a free throw he blows a kiss. There is one nba player, he takes the ball around his body three times before shooting.

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 8:48 AM

does it bother you how much a QB licks his hands?

adrian on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 9:08 AM

no

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 9:13 AM

what is the difference between licking your hand and spitting on your hand?

douglas on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 9:23 AM

i always spit in my hands before I bat, it's helps you get a better grip, I've been doing that since I was in little league. lots of players do that.

Phil on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 9:25 AM

Professional football can end in a 0-0 tie.

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 9:33 AM

And I find that ridiculous.

Exhibition game that determines who gets home field advantage during the world series...atleast it use to determine that...not sure if it still does.

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:33 AM

It does so they won't tie anymore, and I am mistaken in that hockey can end in a tie

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:34 AM

They installed that rule so they wouldn't have anymore bull shit tiees

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:35 AM

The WNBA might allow ties

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:35 AM

Did they finally end the hockey ties?

I don't really care if the game ends in a tie becaue they use goal differential to determine who moves on. Really not that big of a deal.

Not to be sexist, but generally I hate to watch women sports (Olympics I can watch)..........unless Barney get's his idea of sports to snowball somehow. Other than that, I am just not interested. And I am never insterested in Women's Basketball. I watch basketball so I can watch some high flyin' rim rocking dunks. Not to see some girl put an undersized ball through a hoop. If I wanted to see that I would watch my nephew and nieces play on their 6' goal.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:42 AM

more like 4' goal.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:43 AM

I wouldn't be surprised if Oden did stick around to just prove people wrong. He keeps telling people he wants to go to college and stick around, but no one listens to him. It will be interesting to see what he does when the NBA waves $10M in front of him.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:44 AM

It helps that Oden signed and that Thad Matta is one hell of a coach.

douglas on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 10:44 AM

it'll be more than $10M

Sports that can end in a tie:
American football
Aussie rules football
Baseball (game not considered official until it is replayed at a later date, Japan has ties)
Boxing
Chess
Soccer
Horse racing
Rugby

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 12:19 PM

Baseball can't tie, excluding Japan.

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 12:21 PM

game not considered official until it is replayed at a later date, that simply means it is raining and they haven't completed 4 and a half innings, or the number of innings required for a complete game, but they will complete it. So it isn't a tie.

joe on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 12:25 PM

I just went to a Mobile gas station to fill up my car and get some lunch. I was accustomed to them having cheap chicken sandwiches and burgers. However, the gas station gods must have decided that wasn't good enough, so they now sell big pieces of catfish, ribs, sausage and cabbage, greens, and a bunch of other stuff. I got the catfish, and it was actually pretty good.
Now you can continue to argue about what is or isn't a real sport.

Tie goes to the runner in baseball is bullshit too, because there is no such thing as a tie in baseball

Phil on Tuesday, July 11, 2006 at 12:38 PM

Rule 4.12(b).4:
Any suspended game not completed prior to the last scheduled game between the two teams during the championship season shall become a called game. If such game becomes a called game and has progressed far enough to become a regulation game, and the score is tied, the game shall be declared a “tie game.” A tie game is to be replayed in its entirety, unless the league president determines that playing the rescheduled game is not necessary to affect the league championship.

Baseball games *can* end in a tie.
Also, check out the result of the 5/1 game against the braves:

Touche, phil. Baseball can technically end in a tie. You got me there. However, the circumstances behind it are pretty drastic and no important game will ever end in a tie.

I think Adrian has been sitting in front of his computer all day with "FACE!!!!!" typed in, waiting for this very moment. Then, when it comes, he gets excited, decided 5 "!" aren't enough, goes to add more, and then prematurely pulls off the shift button to give us the famous "!!!1" ending. Followed by Adrian cursing at his left ring finger for being weak.

Truly an epic moment in Natty Sci history.

On Chad Ford's blog there is talk that Mayo and Walker might go right to the NBA next season. The rule states that you have to be one year removed from when you "should have" graduated from high school and be 19 years old. If they both drop out, they'd be one year removed from when they "should have" graduated from high school due to being held back a year.

It looks like Walker has a better chance of it. I don't even think Walker is playing high school basketball this season because he's already played 4 years of high school basketball. OJ's case all comes down to when the NBA starts measuring when they should have graduated - the start of elementary school or the start of high school.
