It’s About That Time Again…

linehan13flashThe NFL Season is just around the corner and that means another season of epic failure for my St. Louis Rams. Last year it took an injury to a back up guard to prompt this post, this year it’s the fact that the 2006 draft has officially been labeled one of the worst in NFL history. The Scott Linehan may have done Matt Millen-esque harm to the Rams franchise. The guy is an idiot.

When Linehan was hired back in 2006, I thought he couldn’t be any worse than the Mad Scientist, Mike Martz. While he was an idiot, too…Linehan made him look like Einstein.

A Non-Sports Post…

…but arguably more important.

I just went out and got engaged.  This is the same girlfriend who was featured in the Kiss Cam Story.  Now I have to set a date quickly before she sobers up.

My Take On Rick Pitino

pitinoThis is my second semi-basketball related post in a row, which has to be a record.

Anyway, I had planned on letting this slide but then Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino had to go off on a rant against the media.

If you don’t know the story by now, you can read about it and watch his rant here.  Basically, the way I understand it is that sometime in 2003, Pitino had an extra-marital affair with a woman named Karen Sypher at a restaurant in Louisville.  That’s pretty much where the facts end and the speculation begins.  From there, Sypher married Louisville equipment manager, Tim Sypher.  She was then accused of trying to extort millions from Pitino.  In turn, she accused Pitino of raping her.  Pitino admitted to the sexual contact and insists that it was consensual.

And from here, it gets even more weird.

Shaq’s New Show

LAKERS MEDIA DAYFor the last two Tuesdays I’ve found myself watching Shaq Vs., the new show on ABC.  In it, Shaquille O’Neal takes on top athletes from around the country in their respective sport.  The results are predictably hilarious.  In the first episode Shaq took on Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in a 7 on 7, two-hand touch football game.  Roethlisberger’s team won, but the highlight of the night came when Shaq left the sideline to pick off Big Ben’s pass and rumble down the field for a score (which did not count.)

In last night’s episode, Shaq took on the best sand volleyball team in the world, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.  Again, he lost, but he put forth a respectable effort.

I’ve stated my general disdain for basketball on numerous occasions.  I just really don’t like the game.  I must say, though, that I love Shaquille O’Neal.  I wish all athletes were like him.

Big 12 North Preview

Yesterday I started our brief college football previews with the Big 12 South.  Today, we’ll preview the much weaker North. The Missouri Tigers have won the last two North Titles only be trounced by Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game.  So who gets to be the sacrificial lamb this year?

I think it’s going to be the Kansas Jayhawks.  Of the three real contenders in the North, only Kansas returns their starting QB.  Todd Reesing set all kinds of school records last year while leading the way to 7-5 record and an Insight Bowl victory over Minnesota.  As good as Reesing is, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe is better.  Briscoe caught 92 balls for 1,407 and 15 touchdowns.  He may be the second best receiver in the Big 12, behind OSU’s Dez Bryant.  The running game is okay with senior RB Jake Sharp returning after two straight 800 yard campaigns.  The passing game will obviously be the feature, however.

Big 12 South Preview

spo_ft_big12conference_1006A while ago Weller and I decided we’d do some previews for the upcoming college football season.  Since we’re lazy we decided to do the only two conferences that matter: The Big 12 and the SEC.  I’ll be taking the Big 12 today and Weller will do the SEC whenever he gets around to it.  Maybe the Vandy fans will come back and give him crap for that too.

So let’s get started in the South.  Obviously the stronger of the two divisions, the South boasts two true title contenders going into the season in Texas and Oklahoma plus  the upstart Cowboys of Oklahoma State, rebuilding Texas Tech, up and coming Baylor and Texas A&M.

WaB Joins The One-Hundred-Thousand-Aire Club

Bryan and I just reached a total of 100,000 views. It’s like raising a little kid and seeing him come home from school with with a glowing smile on their face to show you their first report card saying that they got an A+ in recess. It’s a proud moment. One that I’ve been waiting on for quite some time. Back when we were around the 30,000 view mark, Bryan discovered that we could add a view counter to the side bar on our site. I was all for it. He said “nah, I don’t want that up until we have like a hundred thousand.” So I waited and waited and waited. And the time has come! We can finally put the view counter that I have wanted so bad for all these months on the side bar of our site!

Unfortunately I have no idea how to add it… So I guess I’ll have to wait just a little bit longer for Bryan to do it.

Either way, thanks to all of the people who have ever viewed our site, especially to our moms, who have probably accounted for about 99,973 of the 100,000 views… That’s a joke… I hope. Seriously though, thanks to everybody for reading, and please feel free to come back whenever you want. You’re always welcome on our site… unless you’re a florida fan, in which case the exit is right over there. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya.

Bolt Breaks 200m Record

I’m not a fan of Usain Bolt, and I’m pretty convinced he’s on some sort of performance enhancer, but I suppose this is news I should put up on the site. He ran the 200 meter dash today in 19.19 seconds, breaking the previous world record of 19.30. I’m not going to say any more about it because I don’t like him. You can read the ESPN article here. You can also read another post about Bold that Bryan wrote a couple of days ago by clicking here.
