Fro….I love the new header, man. We all deserve some credit for that, I think. But the main credit is yours, of course!
Who’s next? Well, we had this discussion a while ago about who should be fired next. I remember I suggested some names of commissioners who need a visit from the employment angel of death. Somebody else (forgive me, I don’t remember who) suggested someone else. I think it’s a topic worthy of further discussion.
By the way, has anyone broken their New Years resolutions yet? Mine will be easy to keep. I resolve to be the same, miserable, ornery old bastard that you have all come to know. I hope that doesn’t offend the regulars, and makes the dumb fucks who think Lovie should have stayed who post here squirm.
You forgot one thing Fro. Kellen Davis has no nuts to kick. But I’d love to have tried. The amazing thing is that I probably can’t run 15 feet anymore because of how broken down I am now, and Davis would be unable to catch me.
Not only are they keeping Mike Munchak, but they’ve interviewed Mike Tice for OC position. They also interviewed John Shoop (yeah, the John Shoop that Bears fans loved from 99-03) for QB coach . Shoop supposedly spend last year as a blogger…
And speaking of stupid franchises, you hear who the Buffalo Bills have talked to about their head coaching job. That’s right. Lovie Lee Smith! First Jauron, then Dave Wannstedt, now they’re talking to that goddamned idiot Lovie. I guess they can’t learn from our mistakes.
Bulls lose to the Bobcats on Monday. Deng and Boozer still play all but five minutes in this game and just about every other game. He refuses to use his bench to rest the starters. In the conference finals two years ago, he never rested Rose in the losses in the second half. Along with missing their free throws, that’s why they lost that series. He refused to play Jimmy Butler last year and he is the doing the same this year with Marcus Teague. He is the Dusty Baker of basketball. Disagree with me? Look at the box scores (you do this well) of the games and let me know how Teague’s minutes are and how Butler’s were last year.
As for last year, they could have beat the Sixers but Tom had to keep Omer Asik in the game to promptly piss it away when he should have had another player who could actually make some free throws. For the record, ignore what Asik has done so far for the cock-Rockets. He would have never succeeded here and it’s just a matter of time before he returns to his shitty self.
You see Yeti? You take one sample to try to prove your point and I just provided you with a laundry-list of examples to prove you otherwise.
Can you believe that? Deng and Noah and #1 and #3 respectively in minutes played per game. It’s not just me that’s pissed off at this. Many “experts” are saying that this is a bad thing and why the Bulls run out of gas sometimes in games and towards the end of the season. But that’s OK though. You are fine with Tom Thibodeou. Deng had 6 points and 4 rebounds in 43 fucking minutes against the Heat. He needs a rest.
Guys, if the Bears hire Mike McCoy as their new head coach, I’m prepared to deal with at least 5 years of shit having the same name; I had to deal with that in grade school when my Packers had TWO players named Mike McCoy. Obviously as an adult, I can drink to numb that feeling. Fro, as brain-dead as it may seem that the Bills, or anybody, would interview Lovie, the Chiefs are fucking insane for hiring Andy Reid. They just fired Peoli as their GM, and what new GM wants to come into a situation where he can’t pick his own head coach? Emery was stuck with Lovie for a year but at least had the chance to pull the plug after this season. The Chiefs are fucked. Reid needs to take a season off and re-assess his entire life, not just jump back into another head coaching job, especially a situation as toxic as KC’s.
Some rare good hockey news today-our guys just defeated Sweden 3-1 to win the World Junior Hockey Championship in Russia today. Not sure if any of them will be ready for the national team in time for next year’s olympics, but it’s very encouraging for the future of US Hockey.
PS- NHL Network will be replaying the game at 7pm Central tonight in case you didn’t DVR it. Also, at 12:30 today, they will be replaying our semifinal victory against Canada in which we shoved back bacon up their ass and beat them 5-1.
(Meatball voice) Mac, there is only one Mike McKoy in my book. That’s YOU my friend!
Also, Andy Reid to the Chiefs is terrible. When Emery came to the Bears, he probably wanted Lovie gone but they said give him one more year and he did just that. Former Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter said on Friday that Reid was out coached in a lot of games and because he had the team passing the ball a lot, the defense was worn out in games. Sounds like the Bears to me.
Nemo, I did read what happened. Canada also lost to the Russians in the bronze medal game. With the lockout, it doesn’t look like there is going to be a season. They keep bringing in mediators like it’s going to matter and they did the same thing in 2004-2005 and it made things worse. Gary Bettman is responsible for the fourth lockout in 20 years and this could be the second time in a decade, that the entire season would be canceled.
I am sure some of us are still pissed at what happened last week with the Bears and how they needed to get into the playoffs. Regardless, I am glad the Packers dismissed the Vikings. By far, some of the shittiest fans in football and I am saying this in caution because Philadelphia gives them a run for their money. At least I respect the Packers franchise and their fans.
We Bear fans had to sit through years of incompetence of not just Smith and Angelo, but the idiots before them. All of this is happening while witnessing the Packers put together a team that will possibly be favorites to win the Super Bowl every year for the next decade. They already have one with these core of guys.
After all of these years, we finally have a general manager who seems to know what he is doing. He certainly has won us over in his press conferences. He seems to have a plan. Chucky and I both listened to the press conference from Emery on Monday. It was very interesting to hear what he had to say about how he drafts/signs players and the type of scouting him and his guys do.
