It’s been a while.

May 17, 2019

Yeah. I know. I am sort of in this whole “no man’s land” when it comes to sports. The Bears drafted some players that Nagy will probably misuse. Or they will just suck because Ryan Pace is Nagy’s little puppet.

The Bulls ended up getting the seventh pick in the Draft for the third year in a row. But hey, at least I am not a Knicks’ fan. Fuck the Knicks.

The Blackhawks will be choosing third in their respective Draft.

The Fire (and Passion) are terrible this year in the world of soccer. I can’t even watch any of their games because ESPN is a bunch of scum by putting most or all of their games are on their paid service (ESPN+).

Again, apologies for being absent. Lousy sports results in lack of desire to post anything. Work has also consumed my life much more lately.

And they’re off…with a PATHETIC whimper!

Where the fuck is the pitching?

I know the season has just begun and there is much baseball to be played…but I don’t see the Cubs competing with ANYBODY if they don’t right the ship immediately.

What are the odds that Darvish becomes the biggest Cubs bust ever?

PATHETIC.

Matt Nagy = Lovie Smith: Jordan Howard traded to the Eagles.

March 29, 2019

This smells just like Lovie Smith. It’s getting rid of players because they are simply not “his guys.” And of course, Ryan Pace is the puppet while the fraud, Matt Nagy, pulls the strings. We saw it with Thomas Jones after the Super Bowl loss in 2007. We saw it with Greg Olsen after the Packers beat them in the NFC Championship in 2011. It’s happening again.

Jordan Howard is gone. Matt Nagy feels he isn’t “his guy” and wants different players to fit his system.

So, what he’s what he’s letting everyone know is that he doesn’t want to practice common sense while coaching his team. He wants to be stupid and pass the ball when it’s 2nd and inches. He wants to keep passing the ball if the team is up two touchdowns just like the game against the Dolphins this past season. He wants to keep calling pass plays so the team blows the game.

This is a tire fire in progress. Fuck Matt Nagy. This guy is a scam artist and it’s going to be even more exposed this coming season. I never wanted him to begin with because of his inept failures with the Chiefs as the offensive coordinator. And nothing has changed since.

Remember, if a team is going to get rid of a player, they better replace them with someone as equal or better. I doubt it’s going to happen here because everyone in charge is a fucking moron. The Bears won 12 games despite Matt Nagy.

Watch and see. The fraud of a head coach is going to get a five-year extension sometime soon just because Michael McCaskey thinks the arrow is pointing up. If “pointing up” refers to “pointing up someone’s ass,” then sure.

Another open thread for you folks

March 22, 2019

Greetings to all. I am sorry for not posting much lately. Work has consumed me and I also had a shitty cold that lasted a couple of weeks.

Now, onto sports. The NCAA Tournament is underway. As of the conclusion of the first day, I already have three losses in my bracket.

The Blackhawks lost yet, another tough game. They are four points out with nine games left. Needless to say, time is running out. It’s not going to get any easier.

The Bears signed some players. But it doesn’t matter because Matt Nagy is the head coach and all he wants to do is dumb shit that costs the team games.

The Bulls, well, they are bad at sucking. Even when they are supposed to lose, they win. That decreases their chances of a better draft pick. Sheesh.

Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves. Or I should say, disgust amongst yourselves. Whatever.

The Bears just signed a kicker who’s last name is pronounced “Blew it.”

Is this a fucking joke? The Bears just keep out-doing themselves.

Six months or so away from the season opener. This is going great.

FIRE (AND PASSION) AWAY!

Four points out of a playoff spot. 25 games left. Can the Blackhawks complete this comeback?

February 13, 2019

It’s been a very rough season for them up until the seven-game winning streak was started (and stopped with the loss against the Bruins). They fired Quenneville and had two separate eight-game losing streaks. They also made some trades that have paid off so far. This is good news.

And thankfully, some luck had to happen in the form of other teams in the Western Conference sucking at the same time. This has opened the door for the Blackhawks to have a chance. I felt they needed to win ten in a row at some point and they were able to get seven. But another one of five or more wins is necessary and it needs to start within the next week. There is little room for error.

Of course, they will need teams like the Blues, Wild, Canucks and Avalanche to lose games. The Blues are on fire winning seven in a row as well.

As we all know, if a team just gets into the playoffs, they have just as good of a chance as anyone else. Seeding doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Let’s see if they can pull this off.

The Bears are raising ticket prices. Again.

February 1, 2019

https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-spt-bears-raise-season-ticket-prices-20190201-story.html

This is ridiculous. Ted Phillips is the mastermind behind this again. Here’s a snippet:

“Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips sent a letter to season ticket holders informing them of the increase, which he said was based on analysis of renewal trends and secondary-market data. He also noted the 2019 season will hold special meaning as the team celebrates its 100th season.”

A team that hasn’t won a Super Bowl in 33 years is doing this to the fans. I feel so bad for the season ticket/PSL folks. As if the thousands of dollars and time they spend every year isn’t enough. Ted and the minions up in Lake Forest pull this shit. Again.

I have a solution: How about a win a Super Bowl (or three) and maybe, they can raise it just a tad?

The Bears make plenty of money as it is. It’s not just from the tickets and food. Every team gets a good chunk from TV deals.

But, what do I know?

Sean Payton joins Matt Nagy in the “stupid department.”

January 25, 2019

When Drew Brees stepped back to throw on that first down this past Sunday only to throw an incomplete pass, I knew this was going to be a problem for the Saints. Then, on the third down throw, the “controversy” began.

Yet, nobody is talking about that. Everyone is talking about the phantom no-call on pass interference.

This just goes to show that a lot of coaches are just stupid. We saw it with Dan Quinn in the Super Bowl against the Patriots two years ago. We saw it with Nagy when he was calling plays with the Chiefs last year. And this year, Nagy in many different scenarios with the Bears. Add Sean Payton to that list.

Yeah, I know. Drew Brees is the greatest. He is. But two out of the three plays, they were pass plays that were unnecessary.

What did we learn today? In those types of scenarios where common sense should be displayed, it isn’t. This is why teams lose. The coaches beat their own teams.

Run. The. Ball.
