A few thoughts.


1. The NFL is down to it’s final four teams. I have to say, seeing the Packers lose was not a surprise. It seems like the Giants are attempting to repeat their performance of 2008 by barely getting into the playoffs, then kicking the crap out of every team they see. I must say I don’t really like the Giants but they sure are getting the job done. I wish the Bears had a franchise that was ran half as decent as the Giants. It would be cool to see the 49ers win just because they have sucked for years and it would be nice to see a team that we haven’t seen in a while. In the AFC, it’s the Ravens against the Patriots. I will probably be rooting for the Patriots just because Tom Brady is pretty damn good and it’s fun to watch him play. This Sunday should be exciting.

2. Well, the Bears have a few candidates for general manager. I don’t know much about any of them but anybody other than Jerry Angelo or Tim Ruskell is better in my mind.

3. Blackhawks have been stumblinf but managed to hold onto to the win against the Sharks Sunday night. Corey Crawford has struggled as of late and I am a bit worried. While they are still close to the top of the standings, this still needs to gets fixed. There are other issues such as the power play being 1 for 256. While the trading deadline is about a month away, there is a need for a center and defenseman.

4. The Bulls decided not to play defense on Monday against the Grizzlies and they paid for it dearly. They have played well despite being exhausted by having a game every night but still. That game was terrible to watch and they looked disinterested from the start. I won’t bitch too much now but if they have games like this later on, I’ll be here to talk about it and rightfully so.

That will be it for me. Feel free to add your thoughts.

    Nice rip-job on the Sheeple!

    Mac…..OUT-FUCKING-STANDING!!! I can’t believe the way the sheeple cheered when Balsa Wood was introduced. Those are the fans that are a big part of the problem there. He had just signed a 1 year deal worth 3 million. I want one of these morons to list for me 3 things that Kerry Wood brings to the table that gets the Cubs closer to a WS title. It won’t happen, because those 3 things don’t exist. But what the hell, Kerry Wood is a true-blue Cub. He bleeds Cubbie blue. Goddamn, they’re already talking on sports radio about him going down because of his “blisters”, or some other bullshit injury.


    And I’ll bet the ranch that the dumb bastards who bashed Baffoe for the article are the ones who went to the convention. Fucking idiot sheep.

    When I had blisters, I just peed on my hands. It worked great!

    One outstanding sentence in that column…

    “But forgive me if I’d rather just mail a $60 check to a charity than stand among a bunch of sheep in jerseys and watch the team president jam with the awful Plain White Tees.”

    Take notes Yeti and the rest of your internet friends.

    Chucky, thanks! I went back and looked at the comments after the blog- the sheeple are alive and well! The evil little gremlin inside me forced me to add a comment, and the one just before mine (I think) sounds an awful lot like Genre; if it is, way to go Scott! I’m surprised Al Yellon didn’t post something, after he was done crying because someone dare rip on his precious “tradition of losing baseball!” Bleed Cubbie Blue my big fat white ass! (sorry about that mental picture!)

    Busted! Good eye, Mike!

  7. genrebuster Says:

    ………nice post, Moises!

  8. MadCityMac Says:

    Chucky, from Scott and I, all I can say is thanks for the backup on that blog; the sheeple will never, ever, get it.

    By the way, if anybody ever gets a chance to try Lake Louie Brewing’s (Arena, Wis.) Mr Mephisto Imperial Stout, all I can say is wow. Couple more of these and I might go on the rant of a lifetime, but first I need the Cubs to do something, something NEW, that is high on the Cub’s stupid meter, and that will take some doing.

  9. chucky Says:

    No problem Mac. I love needling those dumb fucks to no end.

    I was wondering something. Have you ever tried Carlsberg Elephant beer? That stuff is like drinking liquid cement. Very heavy beer. High alcohol content too. Something like 7-8%. It’s probably been over 25 years since I’ve even seen it.

    I haven’t tried the ones you mentioned. I quit more than 20 years ago due to health reasons. Sucks getting old before your time.

  10. MadCityMac Says:

    Chucky, I tended bar at a great dive in Madison called Arnold’s New Breeze Inn starting in 1978 (my first bartending job ever when I was 19-of course the drinking age was 18 then!). We had Elephant Beer in bottles; it was quite popular just because of the high alcohol content. A lot of the India Pale Ales and Russian Imperial Stouts, Porters, and amazingly, lagers (thank you Stevens Point Brewery!) have a much higher alcohol content than Carlsberg ever had. In fact, the Lake Louie Imperial Stout I’m consuming tonight is damn close to 11%. Most of the Imperials are in that range. Left Coast Brewing has their Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout that is in that range, and the taste is outstanding; same with the Lake Louie I’m drinking now. They’re all “sippers”, not “slammers”. I’m actually past the concept of slamming beers but unfortunately, I can’t just “nurse” a beer along and just sip, sip, sip. My Dad could nurse a 7 oz. tap of Old Style for an hour; if I make a pint of Point last 10 minutes, my regular barkeeps are almost in shock!

  11. MadCityMac Says:

    …and Chucky, I should probably quit for health reasons as well, mostly just the weight gain. My liver is probably already well on it’s way! (kidding!) I like my beer, but I know I need to cut back; doesn’t help that my girlfriend is quite the drinker herself!

  12. Fro Dog Says:

    I love it when all of you old guys talk about how much you guys drink. It’s entertaining. Keep it up folks!

    And by the way, when in the world are we all going to have this get-together that we have been talking about for around six years now? I am sure we all want to see Mike get wasted right in front of our eyes. This is terrible!

  13. genrebuster Says:

    I am planning a short visit to Chicago soon…MAYBE March…will keep you guys posted….

  14. MadCityMac Says:

    Fro, I’m glad my reputation preceeds me! Seriously, Scott, hope March works for everybody, that would be great!

  15. Robert Says:

    Go read desipios page ripping on al yellon that is hilarious

  16. MadCityMac Says:

    Robert, that is fucking AWESOME!

  17. jimmyd Says:


    I need a minimum of a week’s notice; two weeks would be better. I’m a little over 3 hours away from Chicago, so it’s impossible to just drop everything and head down. As soon as you know something, let us all know as early as possible; maybe we can finally make this “get together” a reality.
