Chicago Sky advance

082614-delle-donne-640

The Chicago Sky went into the fourth quarter of the deciding game against the Atlanta Dream trailing by 16. In fact, I don’t believe they ever had the lead. In the final seconds, future Mrs. Fro Dog, Elena Delle Donne, hit a shot to put the Sky ahead by one and was ultimately, the difference. Angel McCoughtry of the Dream put up a shot as time expired but the ball bounced several times around the basket before falling off the rim. Delle Donne had 34 points. This was the first playoff series win in franchise history.

The Sky take on the team that eliminated them from last year’s playoffs in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Indiana Fever on Saturday.

    Please forgive me, but I need to change the subject and get this out of my system right fucking now.

    The Score just announced Dan McNeil’s replacement for the midday. After much hype and millions of commercials on air about “a major programming announcement at 3:00PM”, Dan Bernstein proudly announced………..Patrick Mannelly?

    First off….WHAT THE FUCK?!? Patrick FUCKING Mannelly? You got to be shitting me! THAT’S THE FUCKING BEST THEY COULD DO? Jesus jumping fucking shitballs Rosen!!!!! How much longer do you think you can go and piss on the listeners? I’ve got two suggestions that would be ten times better than the vanilla Mannelly. Steve Rosenbloom, and JASON FUCKING GOFF!!!!!! Goddamn, he’s not in Atlanta anymore. Why not bring him back? I swear to fucking god, this station just does not give a goddamn about it’s listeners. Mitch Rosen, and whoever else is in charge of hiring on air talent, FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    He might not be that bad, He was decent when they had him on bears all access. I didnt like Doug Baffone at first then he grew on me. Give it a chance and see….

    Elena Delle Donne is awesome. There was this lifesize cardboard cutout of her at my local McDonalds and I asked the manager if I can have it when they are done and he told me no. That asshole is pry fapping with it right now.

  3. Fro Dog Says:

    I can’t believe Mannelly was given the job. I agree about Goff but if not him, Abattacola or Rosenbloom deserved it more than him. Nothing against him, but come on. Those three guys put in more time. With Abbatacola, he worked well over a decade as a producer, weekend host, update guy and the occasional fill-in. I wasn’t a fan of Rosenbloom years ago but he grew on me when him and Mark Grote started doing the Saturday morning show.

    I also saw the same Delle Donne cutout as well as the cups with her on there. The one I saw was in a lobby that connected a gas station to a McDonald’s. I should have taken it since it was late at night.

    You guys know what the Mannelly hiring really is? More bullshit bandwagon jumping. It’s not the same as when they signed on to do White Sux games after they won the 05 World Series, but it’s the same cynical approach and attitude to radio programming. Quickly jump on the hottest ticket they can find. They can’t get anybody from the Cubs, they’re already locked in too hard to the White Sux, and I’m not sure enough people care about hockey. What’s left? The Bears. And the season is just starting. I fucking swear this station just looks for ways to piss on it’s audience.

    Just shoot me now.

    Chucky, I have some news that will bring the meatball out in me.

    This weekend is the annual Corn Fest that takes place in Dekalb. I found out that this Sunday, which is the last day, Dan Hampton, Otis Wilson and Steve McMichael are going to be in town playing in a band together. I had no idea they had one but apparently so. I have thought about going but probably wouldn’t get a chance to meet them.

    I kind of just wanted to talk to McMichael and ask him about his days in WCW. Questions about his ex-wife are off the table, of course.

    I don’t really have anything to ask Hampton and if I wanted to meet Otis Wilson, I would be afraid due to the 35 women who would be running me over in order to get child support checks from him. I’ll pass. By the way, didn’t you meet Otis years ago?

  6. chucky Says:

    I hear banjo music.

    Yes, I met Otis Wilson. December 23rd, 1990. Myself and few friends of mine piled into a big, full sized conversion van and to Walter Payton’s “34s”. During half time they did an interview with him about the game up to that point. All during the game you could go up and talk to him and get an autograph. I shook his hand and got an autograph. I said afterwards all the time that he had hands like catcher’s mitts. Just huge. That was a fun afternoon. Got good and drunk that day!

    By the way, the Bears beat Tampa Bay 27-14 that day. Fun day.

  7. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Chris Conte made the team as the 3rd string safety. There is still a chance he can and will fuck shit up. Fuck.

  8. chucky Says:

    Are you fucking serious? Conte made it? Man, I’m having serious concerns about this coaching staff.

  9. Fro Dog Says:

    Son of a bitch. I thought for sure, he was out the door after last season and if not, by this time. He was dropped on the depth chart and my thought was, he was just there to push everyone else to do better.

    They also kept him because despite his concussion, Ryan Mundy has an injury too. The safety position is still thin and likewise for linebackers. This season is going to be very interesting with how they handle the roster with injuries because let’s face it, every team has them and some more than others.

  10. chucky Says:

    Well, hope you guys have good and safe Labor Day. Watch out for the crazies. And with that, all I have left is:

    FUCK YOU CARLOS VILLANUENA!!!

    FUCK YOU “RICKY” DIARRHEA!!!

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    Everybody, this isn’t me being a meatball by any means. But I need to ask you all for your opinion. As we know, the Bears are still thin at linebacker, specifically, the outside positions. If McClellin flops along with Greene/Bostic not improving, what’s next? Do they get someone, say, Michael Sam, to help? He will be signed for pretty cheap and I believe he was a better college player than any of those three I just mentioned.

    Should the Bears take a flyer on him to see what he could do? Nothing to lose, right?

  12. genrebuster Says:

    yes. yes.

  13. chucky Says:

    I would. And I’d tell the media(ESPN) to go fuck themselves. The Bears aren’t “thin” at linebacker as you say. They are completely devoid of anybody there. They’d be in better shape if they suited up a tackling dummy to play the position. I’m beginning to see some of the traits that Lovie Baker and his half-assed regime displayed, namely, blind and unjustified loyalty to players who fucking suck. When this season is over, will they FINALLY admit that Shea McClellin is a bust? Or that Bostic is a bust. When will the fucking Chicago Bears do the right thing, and admit that they were wrong? It’s no big deal doing that. This current regime has had no trouble throwing Angelo under the bus about his mistakes. A place he certainly belongs, by the way. But just look at the Rams. They did draft Michael Sam, and cut him before the season even started. For whatever reason they may had, they took a flyer on him, it didn’t work, and they let him go. This is the philosophy the Bears need to have, more than anything else. They drafted a bad player. OK. Cut him and move the fuck on!

  14. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Right now there are about 75 available unrestricted free agent defensive ends. Some of them are better then Michael Sam some of the are not, He is the only one that will bring the media attention. I don’t think its a good idea to take him as a back up with the attention he brings whether or not its his fault.

    Maybe its the pessimist in me being a Chicago sports fan but I can see this Bears team turning to shit real fast with a couple injuries. What happens to Mr. Trestman if that happens?

  15. chucky Says:

    CBSS…..He’s held accountable for his actions, just like the previous regimes. At least that’s my hope.

  16. Fro Dog Says:

    I can totally understand CS’s pessimism. Injuries happen to every team. It’s up to the coaches and management to have players ready to step in and unfortunately, I think it’s going to take another draft to do that thanks to, as Chucky aptly put it, Lovie Lee Smith. It takes years to build depth on a certain side of the ball.

    However, I really do believe that the defense will still be much better. They can’t be any worse, right? The front four is stacked and if they can somehow get pressure and stop the run along with the linebackers, it shouldn’t be as bad.

  17. chucky Says:

    Fro…the safety’s are going to be an issue as well. Don’t forget about them. Chris Cunte can be a one man iceberg, sitting right in front of the Titanic, errrr, I mean any success the Bears will be trying to attain.

  18. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Right! Just ask Randall Cobb….

  19. Fro Dog Says:

    CS,

    The Chicago Sky have pulled it out again in the playoffs. Elena Delle Donne hardly played because of her back but Allie Quigley tore shit up in Game 3. This Sunday, it will be the Sky against the Mercury with last year’s first two draft picks going against each other in Griner and Delle Donne. The game is at 3:30 so it’s right after the Bears.

  20. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    I just saw that Fro, Good Shit! Is says on the Phoenix website the game is at 12:30. Griner is a headcase! The ladies should get Reggie Miller to teach them how to talk epic shit and get in her head.

  21. Fro Dog Says:

    That’s 12:30 Pacific time and 2:30 here so I messed up Eastern for Central in my last comment. The series starts in Phoenix and let’s pray these few days give Delle Donne time to rest. Griner may be a headcase but Taurasi and Dupree need to be stopped too.

  22. dvxprime Says:

    The Bears are back and we have a Chicago team playing for a title! Where can a brotha get a live stream?

  23. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    am i broke?

  24. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    wont let me post ya a link prime, cant even talk about it, must be a banned topic lol

  25. chucky Says:

    Guys, do it through email. Fro has been kind enough to put me on to some places to go for pro wrestling PPVs. I’m sure he can set you guys up.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
