Kimbrel strikes – err, I mean WALKS – again!

Your comments welcomed…IF anybody even cares.

Does it feel like football season?

August 22, 2020

If anything, the NFL should just cancel the Bears. I don’t even want to waste my energy writing about that fucking team at this fucking moment.

If anything, you can just read any article I’ve written about the Bears (along with the comments in them) since the inception of this website 12 years ago. NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

The Blackhawks are down 3-0. Kenny Albert is calling Game 4 to make sure the series ends.

August 16, 2020

I really had faith the Blackhawks could shock the hockey world and win the Stanley Cup this year. I really did. Damn, this has sucked.

I was ecstatic that they upset the Oilers. I truly felt they were on to bigger and better things.

Then came the Vegas Golden Knights. I have hated this team since they started. I won’t say they replaced the Red Wings at the top of teams I can’t stand. But they are certainly giving them a run for their money. The Blackhawks just can’t catch a break. They are hitting goal posts. Corey Crawford is letting in soft goals at times and when he doesn’t, his teammates in front of him are having defensive breakdowns.

Games 2 and 3 were close. Real close. But they haven’t been able to get it done.

No other excuses this time around. The Kiss of Death To Chicago Sports, Kenny Albert, calls Game 2 of the qualifying series and that’s the only game the Blackhawks lost there. But in this series, he didn’t call the first three games. Now, he’s in a position to call the last game of the season for the Blackhawks. Down 3-0, a miracle needs to happen. They need to win a game with that dweeb calling it.

Can the Blackhawks shock us once again by doing this and then, pull off a comeback for the ages?

For the love of God, please let it happen.

Cubs are playing like it really matters…but will it?

August 12, 2020

So, the Cubs are 12-3, and off to their best start since 1970.

They look great. It seems like David Ross is really connecting with the players, and taking care of business.

Normally I’d be checking the ball scores regularly, but I’m finding it hard to engage…and expecting the season to “end” before it’s completed.

Thoughts, anybody?


“I wanted to wish this website a happy 12th birthday. Dude, did you know that 12 is the number on my jersey?”

“Dude, remember back in 2005 when y’all came to a website to try to fire me? Remember when BobbyD vanished and y’all moved here? BobbyD was your horse. And when you don’t have your horses, you have to look for other ones. *Spits toothpick bits* Man, I don’t know. But dude, this guy you call Fro Dog jumped in. But a dog isn’t a horse. I mean, a dog is a mammal. It has four legs like a horse. Some dogs can run fast like horses. But it’s not a horse. Then KSMC stepped in (rest in paradise). After that, this Genrebuster dude followed up. *Spits toothpick bits* That’s three horses! By the way, does ‘Genrebuster’ have something to do with music? I like music.

You see any of the other teams I managed afterwards have websites with the mission to fire me? You don’t. But when I was in Chicago, you were writing me hate mail. You booed me. I also remember being told about a website talking about LaTroy being bad. Why? Because we’re African-American? Man, y’all racists! *Spits toothpick bits*

But hey, it’s been a while. You had your championship. *Spits toothpick bits* I would have gotten it for you if I just had my horses. *Spits toothpick bits* But dude, that’s just how it goes.

12 years is a long time. And if you go back to the first website you wanted to fire me at, dude, that’s 15 years. *Spits toothpick bits* So I guess, happy double birthday!
