This woman jinxed LSU

How disappointing is must have been for that lady. I mean she applied her eyebrows on with a magic marker and everything, and with a grill like that it’s understandable that she’s forgotten what a good “F” looks like.

One parents ultimate meltdown against the University of Houston baseball coach

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 19, 2009

Like most people I enjoy a complete meltdown from a parent because their kid isn’t getting enough playing time, but when the meltdown occurs in the form of a 20,000-word website dissertation that employs CAPS LOCK, then that is a completely different story. 

Jimmy Reviele was on the University of Houston baseball team for four years under the watchful eye of its coach and evil overlord Rayner Noble who is pictured at the top. Jimmy’s daddy, Vinny, is not happy about the way his son was treated while on the Cougars pitching staff. According to CAP LOCKS and rainbow colors, Jimmy was passed over for players that Noble favored, even though said player were not as good as Jimmy. Jimmy JIMMY! (employing the South Park Timmy routine there) was a bullpen pitcher and never was on the hill longer than an inning. Of course every time Jimmy JIMMY! was on the hill he either walked someone or gave up a run but that’s not the point, because other pitchers who were not as good as Jimmy JIMMY! also gave up more runs. Of course those said pitchers were starters and saw a lot more innings… 

If you read the whole thing be prepared to learn the shocking truth of Houston baseball. I managed to find some parts that appeared angrier than others for your pleasure. They were easy to identify because of the XXXL fonts and rainbow colors. 

This story is about a University of Houston baseball player whose college baseball career (2006 – 2009) was destroyed by the head baseball coach (Rayner Noble) at the University of Houston. … 

Any player or parent who reads this and even has the slightest inclination about playing baseball for Rayner Noble at University of Houston or wherever he is coaching, should really rethink their options. Please don’t make the same mistake that we did. Sadly, we were told this same thing, but we did not listen. … 

Jimmy was just simply not one of Noble’s Showcase Players or “Special Favorite Players.” PLEASE TAKE NOTE* That being one of Noble’s favorites (SFP’s) has nothing to do with a players skill level. If someone is fortunate enough to be one of Noble’s SFP’s you are all set. They will get numerous chances to fail and still feel secure because they know they will be right back in the line up and play again the very next game or right back in the pitching rotation. … 

I honestly love every pitcher on the team and no offense to any of them, but every single one of them including my son Jimmy has been shelled at one time or another this past year. Just like all pitchers, they have had times when they pitched lights out and they had times when they got shelled. All of them!! The pitchers that ended up doing better this past 2009 season were the ones that Noble pitched more. Look at the stats. Most of these guys started off awful but were continually used and naturally they got better! … 

Why is there a different set of rules for Jimmy? … 

Still to this day, I understand that Jimmy was one of the fastest players on the Cougars. I know in his freshman year at U of H, Jimmy broke a college record by 22 seconds for the mile and a half. … 

Jimmy was doomed from day one!… 

Once again they said “when Jimmy was not pitching, he will be at 1st base.” BIG LIE!! (Jimmy never even stepped on first base – let alone play it) The only time Jimmy ever stepped on first base was when they used him two times (his senior year only) to pinch run! … 

TRYING TO SET JIMMY UP FOR FAILURE 

After reviewing all of Jimmy’s appearances above, one would think that without a doubt Noble was trying to set Jimmy up for failure. It could not be a coincidence that out of 12 appearances Jimmy just happened to face the TOP or the MEAT of the order 7 times! Jimmy only pitched part of or only 1 inning at a time! It wasn’t like Jimmy was pitching numerous innings. It seems really strange that this just happened to be this way! NOBLE DID THIS ON PURPOSE SO JIMMY WOULD FAIL . . . JUST LIKE NOBLE DID TO JIMMY AT LAST YEARS FINAL GAME IN COLLEGE STATION, but Jimmy DID NOT! This year (2009) Jimmy was allowed to pitch in only 3 Conference games . . . What is the reason for this? Jimmy’s ERA in Conference is 0.00 ! WHY DIDN’T NOBLE PITCH JIMMY MORE? … 

Note* Jimmy asked Noble if he could get #8 for his Junior year and Noble told Jimmy “OK.” … Much to Jimmy’s surprise on the first day of school, Jimmy noticed that #8 had been assigned to another new player. Jimmy went to Coach Noble and asked why he wasn’t able to get #8? Noble said that Jimmy could have it but it would cost $100.00 (which Jimmy paid him in cash)! How could Noble do this to Jimmy and live with himself? 

DOES NOBLE NEED MONEY THIS BAD? – – – HE IS A SNAKE! … 

NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO PUT THEIR FUTURE IN THE HANDS OF THIS MADMAN. IF NOBLE DECIDES NOT TO PITCH OR PLAY YOU, WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT? NOTHING AND NOBLE KNOWS THIS. THE SCOUTS TOLD JIMMY THAT THEY CANNOT DRAFT SOMEONE IF THEY NEVER SEE THEM PLAY MORE THAN A FEW INNINGS ALL YEAR. 

RECRUITS: TAKE IT FROM US, YOU DO NOT WANT NOBLE CONTROLLING YOUR FUTURE. 

I am not just ranting, these are facts, records and stats. Please check them out yourself. 

Note* Remember it is not SLANDER if it’s TRUE!

NO ONE ON THIS EARTH IS GOING TO DO WHAT NOBLE DID TO MY SON AND GET AWAY WITH IT! 

Sincerely, 

Vinny Raviele 

Emphasis not added. 

Jimmy does not like dirty bases. 

DID YOU FUCKING HEAR ME? JIMMY DOES NOT LIKE DIRTY BASES DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!! 

No Soup for you, one year! 

Whether or not Jimmy JIMMY! was wrongfully treated I don’t know, but this was too much to read. Also, extorting money from players for jersey numbers is an awesome kind of evil. Lane Kiffin please take note.

Random Musings: Baseball Edition

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 9, 2009

Go Red Sox!

Go Red Sox!

Yes…baseball has officially begun, and what a great start to the season with Boston winning their first game and Yankees losing theirs. 

Here a brief collection of not so famous baseball stories that have occurred lately. 

Whoever handles the marketing responsibilities for Giants Apparently does not think things through and they should leave all ball related play on words to someone who is a trained professional. 

Their new slogan “Let’s Play with Balls of Fire” is also the pickup line that Jerry Lee Lewis used on his 13-year-old cousin. They’re already in San Francisco, so there’s no need to attract the gay demographic. It’s there for the taking. 

The E! True Hollywood Story: Beetlejuice

Remember when Joba Chamberlain spent a night in mid-October drinking at a strip club and was stopped by Lincoln police? Well good news everyone the video of his arrest is now available

This video footage of the Yankee right-hander’s arrest in Nebraska shows a drunken and Chamberlain stumbling to his left after the state trooper removes an open bottle of alcohol from his car. 

The video also catches Joba, who at the time was newly acquired by the Yankees, bashing New Yorkers and leveling Yankee great, Yogi Berra, with a cheap shot. (Hahahaha) 

“No bullshit, he might not be as tall as the front of your car,” Chamberlain told the Nebraska state trooper who found an open bottle of Crown Royal sitting inside the hurler’s BMW.” 

Forget about failing a sobriety test; he failed a fashion test. He’s dressed like a mime. 

Don’t ever, under any circumstances, talk bad about Hillsdale College (Mich.) baseball team’s lousy record. That’s what one editor of the school news paper did only to have his home besieged with dead animals. Including a goat that shot gunned. Who shotguns a goat? You slit its throat voodoo fashion. 

Beneath the carcasses a copy of a recent Hillsdale Collegian editorial was found. The editorial called out the baseball team for its 8-14 record (1-9 in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference). 

Here’s an excerpt from the editorial

“In the recent past Hillsdale managed to can its women’s cheer team, the soccer team, men’s swimming and men’s golf. God knows what they did wrong. Even more disturbing, the rugby team (4-3) struggles to become a recognized club (despite field success) as the dean of men pushes to bring a Nerf-war club into fruition. What? 

Maybe you’re next? 

Oh, and lose the swagger. 

Most of you walk around campus with this chip-on-my-shoulder, badass tempo. How is this possible? It’s not enough for you to simply lumber around like the other disappointing athletes? Lose the stride boys.” 

Harsh words indeed however when someone uses harsh word like this it helps to stand by them. Of course after someone’s house was pelted by dead animals the newspaper was quick to apologize

“This past week’s staff editorial about the baseball team was a mistake, and we can’t stand by that expressed opinion. Maybe the right sentiment was there in the beginning, but what we published was poorly written, reported and edited. We now realize there are conditions the baseball team faces, for example a financial disadvantage other teams may not worry about. We kicked a guy when he was down; published an opinion rooted in gossip rather than reported fact. 

Especially, we never should have attacked the character of the baseball team or the coaching staff. We understand you do your best to represent the college well. You are supported by the editorial board as one of our Charger teams and we hope you snag a win this weekend.” 

Way to stick by your guns guys. As for the team itself, lighten up on the carcasses.
