Marvin Lewis will happily crush the dreams of a slacker kid

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 9, 2009

The Bengals might not be a super bowl contender but that doesn’t stop the head coach, Marvin Lewis, from crushing the dreams of stupid and slacker kids in Cincinnati. 

The Bengals have a program for elementary-aged students in Cincinnati where if a student makes an “A” honor roll for two periods they’re invited to the exclusive “Academic Achievement Party” held at Paul Brown Stadium. 

One can blame technology but I rather think that Coach Lewis enjoys crushing the dreams of kids. In a world where recorded phone messages are dialed out, Lewis’ pre-recorded message went out to about 20,000 elementary school students regardless if they could spell, read, write or addition. This is like when WVU accidentally admitted Chris Henry. 

Cheviot resident Melissa Miller’s 13-year-old daughter, Josie, hadn’t expected the invitation because she knew her grades didn’t quite stack up. But after hearing Lewis’s voice on the phone, 20 minutes of “jumping, high-fiving and texting all her friends” ensued. 

It was all for naught. 

“When you’re trying to encourage kids, it’s hard to take,” Miller said. 

The pre-recorded message was only supposed to go out to 2500 kids not 20,000. So Lewis did the only thing he could do: He recorded another apologetic message and rescinded the invite to the non-honor roll students. Lose-lose situation. Students were, naturally, distraught, learning at a young age what it’s like to be a Bengals fan. As a consolation, the troublemakers were invited to try out for the team.

The weekending rundown Friday PM Edition

Phillies take game 1 in the NLCS

Here are some “snarky” comments about stories I didn’t have the time to follow up on and funny photos I doubt I’ll ever use.

Accusations are flying that the ProElite fight between Kimbo Slice & Seth Petruzelli was fixed because of this comment by Petruzelli.

“The promoters kind of hinted to me and they gave me the money to stand and trade with him,” Petruzelli said on “The Monsters in Orlando” show. “They didn’t want me to take him down, let’s just put it that way. It was worth my while to try to stand up and punch with him.”

But another big story regarding this past Saturday’s “fight” is the claim that Slice’s entourage threatened Petruzelli’s wife.

A Petruzelli interview with Sam Caplan includes the following exchange:

Sam Caplan: Can you talk about the aftermath? That was a pretty crazy scene around the cage with Kimbo’s crew. At any point were you concerned for your safety?

Seth Petruzelli: Oh yeah, 100 percent. Afterwards, and I didn’t know it at the time, buy my wife had got threatened a few times. My corner had got threatened a few times. I had stuff thrown at me from the crowd. As soon as I had got done circling and screaming, the athletic commission told me I had to calm down because the crowd was getting crazy. So I calmed down and said listen, “You’ve got to get me out of here.” And I kind of started to get worried about my well-being at that point (laughs).

Sam Caplan: Did the threats against your wife and your corner come from Kimbo’s fans or his corner?

Seth Petruzelli: It was some of his posse that was around the cage. Not all of them were like that but there were a few that were talking some crap that I wasn’t very happy about.

Sam Caplan: (Laughs) Do you have any idea what they possibly could have been mad at you about aside from doing your job?

Seth Petruzelli: I have no idea. I heard this one kid, he kept saying “You cheated! You cheated! You cheated!” (Laughs) And I’m like, how the hell did I cheat!? I mean, what are you talking about!?

Shocking confessions: Chad Ocho Cinco admits that he kissed coach Marvin Lewis during the Dallas game. No tongue, apparently but Brady Quinn makes mental note for next season. [NBCSports]

Mark Mangino to the Kansas student and fans: “Please quit quoting lines from the Waterboy during the games. I really hate Rob Scneider. I’d offer up an alternative Rob Scneider movie quote here but that would require having viewed a Rob Schneider movie.

In case you missed it. There a website dedicated to the hiring of Will Muschamp as the next head coach for the University of Tennessee.

In case you didn’t know…cause I sure as shit didn’t…but the boss of F1 racing is Bernie Ecclestone. His incredibly hot daughter Tamara posed for PETA’s “I would rather go naked than wear fur” campaign. I can’t remember the last time I saw someone wearing a fur coat, but I’m all for hot girls posing to protest them. Or protest anything, for that matter. More images here.

And now a look at the AFC teams after week 2

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 16, 2008

AFC East:

  • New England Patriots: No Brady no problem. Cassel the backup to Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart while at SoCal takes the reigns and leads his team to 2-0. Hey Matt how does feel being benched knowing your backup who never played a college game is undefeated? Maybe this is your career highlight:

  • Buffalo Bills: Looking good guys. They were on the cusp all last year so they aren’t a fluke.
  • New York Jets: Couldn’t beat New England even though they have Brett Fa*** and New England was Brady’less. Welcome to the AFC Brett.
  • Miami Dolphins: Much improved over last year but are still winless.

AFC North:

  • Pittsburgh Steelers: Are still the team to beat.
  • Cleveland Browns: Are winless…what? Yes I’m afraid the team is suffering through a sophomore slump.
  • Cincinnati Bengals: Are horrible Marvin Lewis might want to start updating his resume. I wonder how crow tastes because he had to eat it after taking Chris Henry back.

  • Baltimore Ravens: Don’t expect to much them for the remaining of the season.

AFC South

  • Indianapolis Colts: Are in dire need to get the running game going.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars: Are winless…maybe they aren’t as good as everyone thought.
  • Tennessee Titans: Vince is still sulking because Kerry Collins a future Just For Men spokesman is playing just fine.
  • Houston Texans: Have been disrupted by Hurricane Ike so really to early to tell.

AFC West

  • San Diego Chargers: The Bolts are winless and that’s a shocker. Maybe God hates them this year.
  • Denver Broncos: God may hate the Bolts but he loves Jay Cutler.
  • Oakland Raiders: Lane Kiffin might as well pack his “Hang In There” kitten poster up. He’s done there.
  • Kansas City Chiefs: I like Herman Edwards but this is a bad team he might be Oakland’s next coach.

Hey Ohio State Fans…some Quarterback Named Carson Palmer can’t stand you

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 21, 2008

Carson Palmer, the former Heisman winning QB for SoCal and current Cincinnati Bengals QB, has a clear message for Ohio State fans. He can’t stand them at least that’s what he said Los Angeles radio show.

“I cannot stand the Buckeyes. It’s amazing to hear what those guys think about that university and what they think about that football program and Tressel and all the crap I gotta put up with being back there.

I just can’t wait for two years from now when SC comes to the ‘Shoe and hopefully we’ll have a home game that weekend and I can go up there and watch us pound on them in their own turf

I’m really getting sick of it and I just can’t wait for this game to get here so they can come out to the Coliseum and experience LA and get an old-fashioned Pac-10 butt-whoopin’ and go back to the Big Ten.”

Yes, Carson is certainly making new fans everyday. If this keeps up I’m sure the rumor mill will start turning to a certain quarterback named Brett F**re (I refuse to type his name) coming to the Bengals.

Then again I did say that tOSU fans knew they weren’t liked so maybe this isn’t a shock to them.

Chris Henry is Broke & it is Your Problem Cincinnati

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 9, 2008

Chris Henry has made 2.5 million since 2005 as a member of the Cincinnati Thugs Bengalis yet the boy is so broke that Michael Vick looks like Bill Gates compared to him. Guess what fair citizens of Cincinnati it’s your problem because Henry wants taxpayers to pay for a trial record.

“He’s broke,” said Perry Ancona, the former player’s attorney. “He doesn’t have any money to pay for a transcript.”

And that comment cost the taxpayers of Cincinnati at least fifty big ones.

Ancona filed a motion asking for taxpayers, you know the people who actually work, to pay for a written transcript of Henry’s trial. Henry was arrested after a March 31 incident and charged with criminal damaging and assault.

A judge threw out the criminal damaging charge, saying Cincinnati prosecutors couldn’t prove the allegation. A mistrial was declared last week on the assault charge when jurors couldn’t come to a unanimous verdict. Jurors said they voted 6-2 to acquit Henry.

But prosecutors said Tuesday they would retry Henry on the misdemeanor assault charge.

Henry’s trial was set for Monday.

Henry, a wide receiver drafted in the third round out of WVU, signed a five-year contract for about $6 million. The contract included annual salaries plus playing-time and other incentives.

He received another $1 million to sign plus an average of just over $500,000 for the first three years. He was to be paid $520,000 this year by the team but the team released him after his arrest.

But Ancona claims Henry is as destitute as the Bengalis defense was last year.

“He has no funds whatsoever and can’t even meet his current obligations,” Ancona told the judge.

Don’t worry though, Jerry Jones will sign him. That way he can have the top 2 convicts in the league on each side of the ball. (Pacman Jones) Anyone notice both of them went to the same school?

Henry’s $360,000 Florence house – he bought it in 2005 during his rookie year – was auctioned in May when he failed to pay the mortgage. How the hell we missed that story here I’ll never know.

Henry’s SUV was repossessed last month while he was in court, which was a lot. Damn it Joel you let that one slip by me as well? Ugh!

Henry, who is suspended by the National Football League, was arrested after a March 31 incident in Clifton Heights in which he was accused of punching Gregory Meyer, 18, in the head.

Ancona said in court Tuesday that Meyer tried to “shake down” Henry by asking for $100,000 to make the charges go away.

The assault charge against Henry carries a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail.

Henry wants to continue a professional football career and needs to be acquitted to do that.

However I think he could work at the McDonalds or he could sell pot, seeing as he has a history around it.

Chris, your “friends” aren’t helping you out?
You know, all those people who helped drink your liquor?
Unemployment benefits?
Pretend to be a gas pump?
Pathetic.

Odell Thurman Done Smoked Himself Retarded

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 3, 2008

Some players that attend SEC schools are complete nimrods and dumb asses while in school but then there’s other players that leave school for the NFL, NBA, MLB etc. etc. that just turn a 180º once they achieve their goal of turning into a professional athlete. One such athlete is Odell Thurman.

As a second-round draft choice in 2005, Thurman led the Bengals with 148 tackles, four forced fumbles and five interceptions. He was suspended by the league for four games in July 2006 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. If you puff puff pass you don’t play play get paid in the NFL a novel concept really.

The suspension was extended for the rest of the year after Thurman was arrested by the Po Po on Sept. 25 for drunk driving. He later admitted in court that he is an alcoholic due to the jealousy of being second best to UGA IV.

Thurman applied for reinstatement before the 2007 season, but he was denied as well, setting conditions for his return by Roger “The Sheriff” Goodell. However Goodell did lift the suspension April 21, 2008, but the Bengals waived him last month when he failed to show up for offseason workouts, citing the death of his grandmother.

“His grandmother’s been buried for quite a while. Don’t get into his whole family structure,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis recently told local reporters. “We’ve been patient enough with Odell.”

Thurman’s representative, Safarrah Lawson, countered by saying:

“I will tell you, the death in his family he has taken extremely hard, much harder than I would’ve even thought. To lose the last remnant of his family [affected him].”

When my father died some years ago, I didn’t go on a drinking binge. I didn’t do any drugs. I didn’t get myself arrested. The only thing I did to get through it was work. Work is a good way to get away from things in your personal life that might not be so good and vice versa and it doesn’t require getting hammered or locked up. He’s a football player for goodness sake. He could have taken out all of his aggression, anger, hurt and any other emotion he was keeping pent up just by playing ball. It would have been a much more constructive outlet than what he chose to do instead.

Well guess what, Thurman is facing an indefinite suspension after violating the league’s substance abuse policy AGAIN! This is the second time in three seasons. Thurman is now wearing a silver and red F in his chest for FAIL.

All the people were questioning why the Bengals released Thurman. Well, now they got their answer. However I find it amazing that Odell might be banned from the league for his substance abuse PacMan and his 10+ arrests might be returning.

I would choose drugs over millions of dollars as well, it seems like the smart move!

There is nothing sadder in life than wasted talent. Odell Thurman has truly wasted his talent. This guy needs help, needs to get his life together, start making better decisions. He should forget about football. He may never be reinstated, but he has bigger issues to deal with. Football is a short lived career, and this guy should have many years to live after football. If he doesn’t change his ways, that life will be miserable, short, or possibly both. Truly sad.

YMSWWC’s “Official” NFL Draft Preview Picks 6-10

Posted by Joel Jackson on March 4, 2008

Continuing with YMSWWC’s NFL Draft Preview, here are picks 6-10:

p1_namath_si.jpg New York Jets: “Mangenius” coach Eric Mangini had a difficult second year. Injuries, new QB, and Spygate controversy afftected this team. They need help on both lines, a RB, and like a lot of teams, could use secondary help. I think their best bet, if McFadden doesn’t somehow fall to them, is the second best D-Lineman in the draft, Sedrick Ellis, DE/DT, USC.

patriotsnewlogo.jpg New England Patriots (f/SF): This is a team that racked up a lot of points on offense but got old right before our eyes on defense, particularly the LB corps. With the recent defections of Samuel and Gay at corner, they could use secondary help too. But this draft is a good draft for corners, so they could get a good one in the later rounds. With that said, they need a guy that can easily play a rush end and outside LB. The pick will be Vernon Gholston, DE, Slowhio St.

17860200.jpg Baltimore Ravens: On a personal level, I hope John Harbaugh is a breath of fresh air as opposed to the total windbag known as Brian Billick. Hate is a strong word, and with that really said I didn’t like him. Back to the team that fired him, the needs are many. They are QB, RB, WR, D-Line, O-Line, CB, and that’s about it. I say they go corner, but my pick if I were Ozzie Newsome would be: Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas.

odellthurman.jpg Cincinnati Bengals: I know this pic isn’t really clear, but it’s Odell Thurman after arrest #4. They need to focus their whole entire draft on defense. Yeah they could use another lineman on offense or RB for depth but their defense was as potent as Iraqi forces during Desert Storm. Start from the line and work back. So with that being said, the pick is Phillip Merling, DE, Clemson.

kimreg1.jpg New Orleans Saints: Again, another team with issues on defense. I had one of the corners originally slotted here, but Mike McKenzie is no slouch on one side. The other corner, Jason David, ought to have the nickname of “Toasty” because he got his buns burned repeatedly. The signing of Randall Gay should solve that. I say they go linebacker. Scott Fujita needs help, so I say they draft Keith Rivers, LB, USC

p.s. I couldn’t decide between the above pic of Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush or the below pic of Kim. No it’s not a clip from her sex tape, this is a somewhat clean blog. But it makes no sense, black or white, for a woman to have ass like this:
