College Football Week 8 is in the books & here’s what I learned

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 19, 2008

Ahh…another Saturday of college football has past us by. No real upsets to speak of however it was another great smorgasbord of games with some thrilling endings.

Don’t let the Tennessee score fool you. My complete wrap-up of that game will be tomorrow.

Everyone remember BYU? You know they’re the team with the unstoppable offense that was going to bust the BCS this year. Well TCU has something to say about that.

South Florida keeps in the mix of the Big Least by rolling over Syracuse.

Look out the smarty Northwestern team is now bowl eligible. They beat Purdue handily and this has to be Joe Tiller’s last season.

Maryland is like Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde of the ACC that or Wake Forest just wants to avoid a trip to Tampa and a chance to play in the ACC championship game.

Wow Rutgers actually won a game.

Georgia Tech upended Clemson. This was Dabo Swinney’s first game as interim head coach. I noticed that the AD was on the sidelines because he said something that obviously Swinney didn’t like.

If I was Swinney I would simply blame the AD at the post-game press conference.

“That play that got Korn injured, that was the AD’s call. The hook & ladder play it was the AD’s as well. I figured since he was on the sidelines interfering with my coaching he could call some of the plays”

Seriously folks the AD doesn’t belong on the sidelines. He should have been in the luxury suites entertaining the alumni.

Texas Tech manages to get the offense rolling and defeats Texas A&M.

Wisconsin once was ranked as high as #10 in the country, dropped their 3rd game in a row while taking a beating from Iowa.

Georgia sloppily beat Vandy. Vandy is looking to become bowl eligible.

Oklahoma State is 7-0 for the first time since the 1940’s.

Everyone though Michigan State had turned a corner…then they met Ohio State yesterday. It wasn’t pretty.

Oklahoma might the 4th in the country but they’re also 4th in their division.

I’m one of the few people that actually took Virginia to beat North Carolina.

Ole Miss. gave Alabama a huge scare. Alabama starts fast and fails to finish big.

Michigan looked awesome in the first half against Penn State. To bad the game has a second half.

Kentucky rallied 2 touchdowns in about the final minutes of the game to defeat Arkansas.

Don’t look now but Pittsburgh is now 5-1.

Hey did you know that Virginia Tech played Boston College last night? It was actually a decent game and Virginia Tech, like Wake Forest, doesn’t want too go to the ACC championship game either.

Texas crushes Missouri. (Insert Obligatory ‘Don’t Mess With Texas’ Headline Here)

California gets ranked the second time in the season just to get beaten again.

South Carolina fails to win a third game in a row. (Snicker)

Finally. My beloved Red Sox are still alive thanks to this fat-ass. Of course TBS has an epic fail due to technically difficulties.

“Two circuit breakers in our Atlanta transmission operations tripped causing the master router and its backup – which are necessary to transmit any incoming feed outbound – to shut down. This impacted our live feed from being distributed to any of the other networks in the Turner portfolio and caused the delay in our coverage. Both our primary and backup routers were impacted by this problem. We apologize to baseball fans for this mishap that caused a delay in our coverage.”

Everyone wanting to watch the game in the U.S. had to wade through about 20 minutes of a rerun of the Steve Harvey Show, and missed BJ Upton’s solo home run in the bottom of the first inning.

I’m no expert on TV transmission system design, but wouldn’t you think that your backup system would be isolated from your main system such that a circuit breaker going down wouldn’t take them both off line? Isn’t that, you know, the point of a backup system?

Way to go TBS…& where is the apology to those that might be upset about missing the last 10 minutes of the show? They might have wanted to see more wacky shenanigans.

Tempers Flare Sox Still Win

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 6, 2008

Coco Dodges

In the process of defeating the Tampa Rays by a score of 7-1 Boston center fielder Coco Crisp was hit on the right hip by Tampa Bay right-hander James Shields, prompting a benches-clearing brawl in the second inning.

Crisp dropped his bat, charged the mound, ducked a wild right by Shields before throwing a few punches of his own on Shields before being tackled to the ground by catcher Dioner Navarro.

Rays DH Jonny “I’m a Cheapshot Artist” Gomes charged the mound from the dugout, jumped on Navarro and Crisp, and threw a few punches that hit Crisp while he was on the ground.

I now know why nobody in Tampa watches these bums. What a bunch a jerkoffs. They try to pick fights with the Yankees in SPRING TRAINING and now this? Seems like a bunch of immature thugs crying over sour apples. I hope Sheilds gets a 7 day suspension, and Gomes, he should get 7 games as well. What a punk. Crisp deserves a lengthy suspension as well, but it’s not like he had a choice…Just trying to defend himself from a blatant attempt to injure him.

The tempers carried over from Wednesday’s game when Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said Crisp “intentionally” tried hurt somebody. He slid hard into second baseman Akinori Iwamura when he was caught stealing two innings after shortstop Jason Bartlett blocked the bag with his leg which was a bush league move. Crisp injured his left thumb against Bartlett’s leg.

“It’s simple,” Gomes said, when asked what he was doing when he got to the mound. “I’m just going out there for my pitcher’s defense.”

Crisp, who had a scratch on his forehead and right cheek, was most upset with what happened under the pile.

“I charged the mound. [Shields] tried to hit me with a punch,” Crisp said. “I’m not upset at all. We fought. That’s all it is. There were some cheap shots there. [Carl] Crawford came sliding in. I don’t know why he was pulling hair, scratching. After that it was three, four guys on one.”

Crawford = complete woman.

After Wednesday’s game, Maddon said

“I believe the players should take care of things on the field.”

Crisp was also involved in a flare-up in the eighth Wednesday. When he went to the mound to make a pitching change, Maddon turned toward the Red Sox dugout and said something to Crisp.

“Everybody else on the mound started looking over there so I got louder,” Crisp said after the game. “I don’t know if he could hear what I was saying but basically I just said, ‘I did that on my own so don’t punish anybody else on the team.”

Crisp said he was upset with shortstop Bartlett, not Iwamura, after Bartlett put his knee down in front of the bag on Crisp’s successful steal in the sixth. His thumb was bandaged after the game, but he started Thursday.

“I told him … I’d get back on base and then I’m going to show him how I felt about it,” Crisp said. “It wasn’t as dramatic as it probably would have been if he would have covered the bag.”

These guys miss hockey season already.

The Yankees Wish New Yorkers a Happy New Year by Screwing Them Over

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on January 2, 2008

The New York Yankees wish New Yorkers a belated Merry Christmas & Happy New Year by screwing them with higher parking rates on game day but that’s just the beginning. The Yankees and hundreds of their VIPs will get free valet parking for the next 40 years, courtesy of New York taxpayers. A bold move that is sure to really piss off Mets fans, if they had any fans after last years debacle.

The Yankees already the richest team in baseball shouldn’t need this type of subsidy that is found buried deep in the fine print of a $237 million tax-exempt bond offering that city officials underhandedly issued before all things, Christmas.

A $70 million state subsidy for parking improvements for the new Yankee Stadium has been earmarked for a new 660-car valet parking garage where virtually all the spaces will be reserved for the free, year-round use of the Yankees and their VIPs, such as Alex Rodriguez’s wife, whomever the current mayor is sleeping with & Al Roker.

The bond actually has more shocking details for New Yorkers to grasp hold of. Such as:

  • The total cost of the parking expansion project has zoomed to $340 million – $80 million more than city officials announced only eight months ago, when the directors of the city Industrial Development Agency gave preliminary approval to the bond issue. The money is meant to pay for three new garages, refurbishing half a dozen open-air lots and replacing lost parkland due to construction.
  • Game-day parking prices for the general public will more than double from $14 last year to $29 in 2010. They could hit $35 by 2014.
  • In addition to 600 free valet parking spaces for the Yankees, 120 game-day parking spaces will be reserved for the free use of the private cars of city cops assigned to the stadium, and an additional 130 on non-game days for city vehicles on “official business.”
  • Another $5 million will be “donated” to the “Roger Clemons Didn’t Juice Up” charity whose sole purpose is to make him look more like Floyd Landis than someone willing to admit they made a mistake.

“The Yankees have no involvement with the garages,” team spokeswoman Alice McGillion said yesterday.

Sure. And Manhattan has no involvement with the Brooklyn Bridge. See this is just another reason to love Boston and hate the Yankees.

This I proclaim on 1/2/08.

Top Ten Reasons Why the Cleveland Indians Blew a Chance too Get to the World Series

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 22, 2007

10. They were to busy admiring Mani Ramirez’s hair.

9. They wanted to devote more time to get KISS in to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

8. The death threats from Ben & Casey Affleck were to un-nerving.

7. They wanted to show Drew Carey that it’s OK to have little success & then suck.

6. They would rather audition for “Major League 4 Ass Kicked by Boston” than play in another game.

5. Rest of the team secretly hates Lofton & rather not see him win a ring.

4. Lebron James begged them that he be the one that brings a championship to the city first.

3. They wanted to see if the threats by their manager of not shaving until they won were true.

2. The Boston Red Sox mascot “Wally the Green Monster” was really, really scary.

1. Isn’t it obvious? God hates Cleveland sports.
