1.30.2007

This week in baseball (and basketball, and football, and the news, and a little horse racing too)

1) Bill Parcels is reportedly in talks with the Jets as becoming a consultant for the team in 2007. Sign him up Johnson & Johnson!

2) In San Jose, a 64 year old man was sentenced to 150 years in prison for molesting a reported 100 children since 1969. What a sicko! One question though, 'After the 150 years is up, how can our judicial system just let this guy free?' Fakehead Esq, that one is for you.

3) I said the Jets are talking to the Tuna baby!!!

4) Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro was put to sleep yesterday after a series of ailments. However, they did not put his balls to sleep if you know what I mean.

5) Ojani Noa, J. Lo's first husband is writing a tell-all book which also tells about J. Lo's "many affairs". First of all, how many times was she married? Secondly, dude you are a total loser and probably a faggot (not that there is anything wrong with that). And I am not talking about a gay person to be honest. I mean the kind of faggot that gets beat up on the playground just for being a tool.

6) Los Angeles police want singer Brandy charged in a case of vehicular manslaughter. Did you hear about this? On December 30th, Brandy was driving on the freeway at 65 MHP and she did not notice that the cars in front of her were slowed because of traffic. She slammed into a car in front of her, killing a 38 mother. I seriously hope her celebrity does not get in the way of her getting a proper punishment. Just because she is an idiot doesn't mean that she should walk away without any repercussions.

7) What is a 'consultant' do in the NFL? Actually, who cares. I don't care if 'consultant' is another word for nose tackle, we'll take the Tuna anyway we can get him.

8) Does anybody know why Kobe changed his jersey number from 8 to 24? I hate it when these NBA players do that. The only reason they do that is because MJ did it after he played baseball.

9) It is reported that there might be other missing children linked to Michael Devlin, the MO man who was found with two missing children in his apartment. Authorities said that Devlin's computer had indicated that he used many different user names which made it hard for police to track him while visiting child porn sites. On that note, since this story broke has anyone heard from Gadfly (aka: Shea Gadfly, Paddy O' Gadfly, Mookie Gadfly, Mookie W. O'Maolchathaigh-Fly, Paddy Maolchathaigh)?

10) According to Dennis Dodd of CBS Sportsline, Rutgers own Ray Rice is the front runner for the '07 Heisman Trophy. Not for nothing, I am officially a Rutgers fan now. And this site will soon be selling Ray Rice jersey's. And my goal for 2007 will be to turn Fakehead into a Rutgers fan, despite his hateful feelings toward the school. You will be wearing red and white (and black I think too) by the time September comes.

11) New Rutgers rival, Louisville will be having their starting QB Brian Brohm back for another year which will make that match up a big game. Seems he must like getting hollered at on the side line by his brother so much that decided to stay, despite being ranked as the number one QB in the upcoming NFL draft.

12) I turned on CNN the other day and found Paula Zahn's look had changed. I couldn't figure it out and then I could tell she had he teeth enlarged. It was sort of weird. But to be honest, I really don't care. I just thought it was sort of weird.

13) I wouldn't care if Bill Parcels got his teeth enlarged. As long as he was wearing Jet green.

OK folks, thanks for reading. Feel free to comment.

Hey good post Ed in Westchester!?

Wait a second, you are just an imposter. I hope Ed bitch slaps you when and if he ever meets you. Come up with your own format bitch ass.

PS - I thought it was a funny post until you accused me of child molestation. Stop trying to blow my cover (or anything else) you half a queer. That's right I said it.

Unruly said...

Hey, there he is I was worried about you. Glad to see ya!

I know, I hope Ed doesn't mind. I am just borrowing his format until I settle into my own. Plus, he is a much better writer and way more creative than me so I dont think he will even realize that I am copying. I will explore other peoples blog to copy them and I will leave Ed's style alone.

Mookie McFly said...

This is in response to Figgy who questioned my cousin (from another mother) Air Jersey, aka Vinny (he's from NJ now, no more Vince) Carter...just in case he doesn't go back to old posts to read comments:

The so called Faker/Nickname for a young cat, dropped a trey on the Jizz last night inadvertantly helping out you powder puff wearing pussies (although after beating you & Utah, it makes me wonder how good the West really is?). He did you a solid...I'm sure he wouldn't give 100% for you but for us he will...

Anyway, the only reason anyone even knows Colorado exists is because of tragedies like Dumb & Dumberererer, Columbine, Jon Benet Ramsey & the Kennedy skiing accidents. Seriously if it wasn't for NJ & the tri-state all you gold brickers out west would have to stop working for the government and get real jobs...and pay real taxes, pay for your insurance and/or get off the dole. Do me a favor, stop talking smack about Jersey.

You got a beef chief? If so, I'm knocking out teeth Keith.

Your NJ privileges have been revoked. You no longer recognize what good pizza tastes like, you'll have to watch re-runs of the X-games instead of the Subway Series, Tiki Barber wants his jersey back, you will be known as a bigger noodle than your bingo playing bachelor backup QB, girls won't want to have sex with you even if you have the latest LL Cool James blasting out of your I-Rock, and you can no longer use the "F" word as an adjective, adverb, noun, verb or a participle. You also realize that I could go on for quite some more but you give in because you are no longer a tough guy from Jersey.

I do however like the NBA and I don't even have any black friends like you(not that there is anything wrong with that, I think.)

PS - NJ also wants you pair of Z Cavariccis (I don't have to know how to spell it...I went to SHP for crying out loud!) back forthwith. Use either Fed Ex or UPS. NJ doesn't want your gold bricking ass sending stuff via the federal government.

Hey, you know if I get cut I bleed jersey. When in Rome...
Serioudly, thouygh, Vinny Carter should play soccer for the Italians. I hate it whne he goes down and is either paralyzed or rolls around like he is Aaron Ralston (Ralston is the Colorado guy who sawed his own arm off at the elbow because it was pinned beneath a boulder for three days in the wilderness) In fact, Ralston whined less than Vinny C does.

And Iverson was shot three times at a club the other night and still played in the game.

Faker, saw a couple of good movies yesterday. Seraphim Falls with Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan was a western in the mold of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly in terms of people always double-crossing each other. It also had some Rambo elemnets and also I noticed a parallel with Heat (DeNiro and Pacino being opposite sides of the same coin). Some of it was pretty hardcore gory too, and it looks like it was exclusively shot in Colorado, great landscapes and cinematography.

Letters From Iwo Jima was awesome! I missed Flags of Our Fathers when it was out (but I read the book), but now for sure I have to get it on DVD. I liked getting the perspective from the Japanese defenders. Then I will see the movie about the invaders. Very much worth seeing in the theater. Ken Wtanabe from Crouching Tiger and the Last Samurai was General Kayabushi (or something like that) that orgaized the defense of the little shit island which was the last stepping stone to mainland Japan.
You watch the movie and see the pounding they go through and how they refuse to surrender and you think, 'wow, that's bad.' The you realize that we nuke them TWICE after that. Go see it. I think I'm going to review the two of them on my Overfloater site.

Fakehead said...

I saw "Smoking Aces" over the weekend and I didn't mind it. I would give it a C+. It changed vibes midway-through. Completely unrealistic but somewhat entertaining. Alicia Keyes was hot, and wasn't half bad at acting. Neither was Ryan Renoylds, (sp), Common or Jeremy Piven (no big stretch for him though). I thought the funniest guy was Jason Bateman, he stole the 2 minutes he was on screen.

Regardless, as for Ed/Unruly's comments, I don't have much to say except that I agree that having the fat Tuna on board would be interesting. Plus, another rumor going around is that the Jets or Giants are looking at Thomas Jones for their RB next year. I would take him for sure.

The Simms kid is going to Louisville, (again) but I doubt the rest of the Big East needs to worry if he has a college career like his brother. (What ever happened to Major Applewhite anyway, almost as good a name as RW McQuarters).

F Brandy, but if she just is an awful driver suspend her license for a few years and let her settle with the family of the person she killed. She doesn't need to go to jail unless she was drunk. Unfair, maybe, but we all know she ain't doing any time.

I feel really sorry for that horse. What a shame. If he wasn't Barbaro he would have been killed at the track though. I don't know, they just use these poor animals. I can't deal with that shit. For every Barbaro there are 100s of other horses that get used, doped up, abused, and put down if they suck at racing or just aren't worth any money.

Anyway, never a dull moment Unruly. Keep talking, I'll comment, no matter format you steal to get your point across.

Figgy, thanks for your comments about my blog. Seriously let me know if my blogs are funny or not. I am trying to make these worth reading.

Fakehead, Thanks for your comments.

All of you, did you see 60 Minutes this weekend about that Savant (sp) kid who can remember numbers like the rainman? This kid has a memory like a computer however he is very articulate and not at all disabled. I sent him an email and figured I would share it with you. I took out my name for obvious reasons.

Beat it:


Dear Unruly Jets Fan,

Who are you, Tommy Two Times?

Mookie McFly said...

Look at the bottom of the page for a picture of some freaks I found on the web (and with a little help from photo editor...)

unruly said...

love it!

Ed in Westchester said...

Why unruly, you thieving somnabitch! I'm gonna get you sucka. You even post it a day before me, so I look like I'm ripping you off. Bitch slap on the way.

Actually, not so much. I mean shit, its like an homage or something. No worries man. Good stuff.

Now, if you start labeling it weekly observations or someshit like that, then we're gonna throw down.

Ed in Westchester said...

I like the pic mookie mcfly

Unruly Jets Fan said...

Yikes, I was hoping you would not be lurking around here this week Edwin. I will change the format. I was just trying to change it up since their is not much Jet stuff to talk about these days. Ok damnit, I plagurized you. But your right, it is like homage. Its like Man for Man playing Blinded by the Light even know Bruce wrote and recorded it first. You are the teacher and I am the student Ed.

Ok, enough kissing ass. Actually, if you want Ed, I will make a stick figure of you you just need to tell me what number you want, what color hair etc. We'll post you up under "Fellow Gansta;s". Then we'll be even.

Ed in Westchester said...

Ed likes #5 in honor of Denis Potvin and David Wright :)

In all seriousness, no need to change the format. It's all good. Very funny stuff.

The Overfloater said...

Unruly, the blog is a hit, don't worry. We keep plugging away and you'll get picked up big time. Just get one or two sponsors. We should find a way to put a counter at the bottom of the pages to see actually how many hits we get. But the hits keep on coming with these four different-styled contributing writers.

If Bill Parcells chooses the Jets over the Giants I will cry. C'mon guy, you won two Super Bowls with us, c'mon home Bill. The make the end run at Cowher in 2008. Seriously, his daughters play basketball at Princeton. For some reason though, picturing Cowher in Giants blue is like I remember trying to picture Al Gore as President. I just couldn't see it.

Obama, Hilary? The party's coming to MY town in August '087 baby! I am actually the most interested in Bill Richardson from New Mexico. I like McCain for the Republicans, but something tells me that the Grand Old Party will concede this election and put up someone who will just fill the space. Give the Dems total control of this mess they've made.

Faker, how the hell can you hate Rutgers? You gave it one semester and you commuted. Support New Jersey college football period. I wish I was there for that shit. Actually, I went to a few games down there, more for the party than the game - they were dreadful in those days. But I remember seeing guys like Marco Battaglia and Ray Lucas around, they had NFL careers.

Best story: opener of the '95 season, parachutists descend into the stadium. First guy loses control at about 100 feet up and starts spinning round and round and BAM!- he bounces off the field and his chute was still full and dragging him along. He comes to a stop and tries to stand up and wave to the crowd and falls down for the count. He wound up breaking his hip and both legs. Doh!

The Overfloater said...

Oh yeah, have to tell you this, sorry - Snow is melting across the state, a Fort Collins kid discovered a woman half buried in a snow bank that was finally melting. The woman had been missing since Dec 31st, walking home from church. Because of additional snowfall (3 storms in three weeks) she collapsed and died - from what we don't know yet - and snow fell on top of her to the point she was no longer visible. She has been dead and buried in a snow bank AT AN INTERSECTION in plain sight for a MONTH!! Unbelievable!

Mookie McFly said...

Hillary won't win because she is too polarizing. She's a carpet bagger much like the Kennedy's and real Americans didn't like her wearing a Cubs hat and then a Yankee hat when she was trying to figure out where she wanted to live/work only a few years ago. I am pretty sure New Yorkers don't like her traipsing around Iowa and the midwest looking for votes on their dime. Obama has about as much experience to be president as he has aq chance which isn't saying a lot. If Americans were predictable they'd vote in a president who could work with Congress. They are not that predictable and for that reason I could see ten candidates coming out who have a better chance than either of the three or four you mentioned.

I'll probably just vote for Nader again though!

Figgy, there is a counter in the side bar...but regardless, this is an entertaining hobby but I doubt anything more than laughs will come from it. Laughs are enough for me though and it's been nice talking to you guys almost every day again. It's like back in our HFS days but without the weirdness and guilt!

Also Miggy the Fick, I read your post on OF but I couldn't get my comment to stick. Good review but it was a bit of a spoiler...Did you happen to see the Proposition (great western set in Australia)? I reccomend giving it a go as it is out on video now. Also I saw the Last King of Scotland and I know you would like it. It had everything from humor to history.

Smell Ya Later

Unruly said...

Mark my words, the next president will be either Hillary or Rudi Guiliani. Dont give me any shit either. We will come back to this blog in '08 so I can tell you guys that I am right.

Thanks for the comments Fig, I think you are better off with Cohwer who has a year off to refresh himself then Bill at this point. Cowher is young enough to have some spunk and he will be well rested. Plus he will be near his kids.

Fakehead said...

The Proposition was a great flick and I highly recommend it!!!!!!

I will not vote for Hillary because she is lame. She only stayed married to Bill for political reasons. She is the definition of a fucking "politician" and I don't mean that in a good way.

I have voted for Nadar in the past, it's a waste. Besides, he can't run this country, he is too much of a pussy. (No offense to him).

Ed in Westchester said...

I hope you meant no offense to pussy.

I have a new address guys

edinwestchester.blogspot.com

please be so kind as to correct the link. Name of the blog stays the same, just the address changed.

Later.

urnuly said...

Ed, it doesn't work. Is it set up yet?

Great job with the pics Gadfly!!!

Does everyone like their pic? I think we will be modifying them as we go along.
