FUN SUMMER ON THE WAY

Fuel prices in Death Valley on Tuesday!!! At least diesel is cheaper than premium. LOL! Or cry.

ANDY KATZ SPEAKS TO 26 NBA GM’S ABOUT THE NBA DRAFT PROSPECTS

ESPN.com has the list of unanimous choices to be chosen in the lottery.

Jerryd Bayless, Fr., G, Arizona — 26
Michael Beasley, Fr., F, Kansas State — 26
Eric Gordon, Fr., G, Indiana — 26
Brook Lopez, Soph., C, Stanford — 26
Derrick Rose, Fr., G, Memphis — 26
O.J. Mayo, Fr., G, USC — 26

Here is the rest of the list..

Let hope WVU’s Joe Alexander (pictured) isn’t labeled your typical white non-athlete. Looks like he can jump a little.

CANSECO HITS ROCK BOTTOM

Jose is one step away from the poor house. This from SportsByBrooks.com…

Dan Gross of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS punches up news that the former MLB slugger-slash-offending author is looking for a fight. He & his promoter already have a date & place set – July 12 in Atlantic City. Now all they need is an opponent.

So, what’s it worth to someone willing to go a few rounds with Jose?

About $5,000. Canseco may even thrown in a signed copy of either “Juiced” on “Vindicated” – but not both. That’ll hurt book sales.

Those interested in stepping into the ring with Jose should forward along their name, address, phone, trunk size & choice of corner water (Evian, Arrowhead, tap) to fightcanseco@aol.com.

WE’RE WAITING FOR FRIDAY’S VIDEO FROM HOLLYWOOD PARK

Here’s 2007…

DAILY RAYS OF SUNSHINE

IS N.Y. ANCHOR FOUL-MOUTHED OR A DRUNK? BOTH!

WNBC legend Sue Simmons is a laughing-stock for her f-bomb during a Monday news tease. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

She must be a sweetheart as former co-workers are lining up to rip her to shreds.

Sue Simmons likes the sauce and she can be cranky about it,” a former WNBC employee told The Post. “She was sometimes a little tipsy [on the air] to the point where colleagues would take notice.”

Simmons anchors Channel 4’s 5 p.m. newscast, and then has time to pass until 11 p.m.

Those hours are regularly spent at Midtown watering holes like Gallagher’s steakhouse and Jean Georges, witnesses said.

“I wouldn’t say she gets sloshed – sloshed, that wouldn’t be the right word,” a Gallagher’s employee said, gesturing to the back booths where Simmons typically takes her between-show breaks.

“I would say she gets happy. She gets very happy.”

An employee at Jean Georges at Columbus Circle said Simmons isn’t shy about drinking with her meals – and then heading back to work.

“She’s been here and she’s had drinks with her dinner,” a Jean Georges employee said. “She’s had a cocktail or two, yes, between shows, with dinner.”

WAIT A SECOND…HOW ARE THE PATRIOTS THE GOOD GUYS NOW?

So Matt Walsh didn’t have video of the Super Bowl walkthrough by the Rams. The Boston Herald got it wrong. There’s a huge apology in the paper…

On Feb. 2, 2008, the Boston Herald reported that a member of the New England Patriots’ video staff taped the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI. While the Boston Herald based its Feb. 2, 2008, report on sources that it believed to be credible, we now know that this report was false, and that no tape of the walkthrough ever existed.

Prior to the publication of its Feb. 2, 2008, article, the Boston Herald neither possessed nor viewed a tape of the Rams’ walkthrough before Super Bowl XXXVI, nor did we speak to anyone who had. We should not have published the allegation in the absence of firmer verification.

The Boston Herald regrets the damage done to the team by publication of the allegation, and sincerely apologizes to its readers and to the New England Patriots’ owners, players, employees and fans for our error

Now Bob Kraft is threatening a lawsuit. If we want to go down this road how about…

1. Fans in various cities suing New England and the NFL for fraud

2. Athletes can sue the Pats & NFL because of lost wages due to “poor play.”  Afterall, there had to be a few guys sent packing or who got less dollars on their next contract due to the fact that the Pats through cheating knew how to attack their D.

Bottomline, the Patriots did cheat.

So what if Walsh didn’t have a video? He claims he did watch the Rams walkthrough and report the info to Bill Belichick.

Former players/ESPN analysts who saw the videos for the first time yesterday were blown away. They stated it would’ve have a huge impact on an offense attacking the defense. Plus you had Rick Telander (Chicago Sun Times) and Terence Moore (Atlanta Journal Constitution) saying the Patriots SB victories are even more sullied after viewing these tapes.

So cut the crap with the righteous indignation from someone, completely and totally in the wrong!!

GREATEST SPORT ON EARTH GETS A VIDEO GAME!!!!

Created by Mastiff Games, Major League Eating: The Game allows you to play as all your favorite stars of the shoving-food-down-your-throat-leagues, such as Joey Chestnut, Takeru Kobayashi, Patrick Bertoletti, Tim “Eater X” Janus, “Crazy Legs” Conti, Sonya Thomas and Juliet Lee.

Puking, although beautifully graphic and vibrantly colored, signals your premature departure from the game. This Wii game also contains offensive and defensive strategy through the use of belches and ‘mustard gas’ to slow down your opponent.

It looks a lot like an old school Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat game, I guess the only difference is instead of trying to kill your opponent, you’re trying to kill yourself through unhealthy eating habits and an increased likelihood of obesity.

For a great MLE quote you must talk to a Shea..

“If you want to be a rock star, there’s ‘Guitar Hero’ and you want to be an Italian plumber, there’s ‘Super Mario Brothers,'” said MLE president Rich Shea. “But if you want to be a pro athlete, there’s ‘MLE: The Game.”

“Eater X” Tim Janus loves the game…

 Janus, who went out to San Francisco a couple months ago to promote his appearance in the game at a Nintendo conference. Janus played the game after setting a new record for sushi (he ate an amazing 141 pieces in six minutes).

“The game is good,” said Janus, who while not eating is actually a trader. “You can chose how you want to flip the food into your mouth, but you have to monitor how you chew, how many pieces you can fit in your mouth and how full your stomach is.”

WHO GIVES A SH*T, WHAT WEST VIRGINIA VOTES FOR?

What a media driven sham!

I don’t care who gets the nomination, but when has the national media ever given a rat’s ass about what West Virginia thinks?

Plus didn’t West Virgnia withdraw from the process when it decided to revolt against a DJ, who pulled an on-air stunt?

A Charleston radio personality was suspended from his job for refusing to tone down his on-air excitement over former WVU head football coach Rich Rodriguez’s decision to take the head job at the University of Michigan.

Coach Kidd, a Michigan native, co-hosts the morning talk show on Electric 102.7 FM. For the past couple days, he’s dominated the show’s content with his feelings on how Rodriguez’s job change will be a boon to the Wolverines football program — much to the dismay of listeners.

After playing the Wolverines’ fight song for a fourth time this morning, Coach Kidd was yanked off the air.

GOD DAMN KIDS THESE DAYS…WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THIS??

A 13-year-old from Texas who stole his Dad’s credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.

Ralph Hardy, a 13-year-old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father’s existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing “Halo” on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.

Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a “World of Warcraft” tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.

I HATE WVU MORE EVERY DAY

December 21, 2007

wvu1.jpg 

Boy, I can’t let this go. Can you blame me with this story? A double-dip stupid fans + stupid radio executive = Mr. Sunshine heart attack!!!

Finally, someone told Mountaineer fans to lighten up….it’s a god damn football team! It’s always a solid radio gag to bust the balls of your listeners. Unless the listeners are psychos backed by gutless radio execs.

A Charleston radio personality was suspended from his job for refusing to tone down his on-air excitement over former WVU head football coach Rich Rodriguez’s decision to take the head job at the University of Michigan.

Coach Kidd, a Michigan native, co-hosts the morning talk show on Electric 102.7 FM. For the past couple days, he’s dominated the show’s content with his feelings on how Rodriguez’s job change will be a boon to the Wolverines football program — much to the dismay of listeners.

After playing the Wolverines’ fight song for a fourth time this morning, Coach Kidd was yanked off the air.

“Basically, it boils down to insubordination,” said Wade Hill, the station’s program manager. “He was just taking it a little too far.”

Hill said the decision to suspend Coach Kidd came from upper-level management about 7:40 a.m. today. Hill said he’s been trying to work something out with the station’s administrators to see if he can get Coach Kidd back on the air.

Please call or write management at this station and tell them to quit!!!! It’s Bristol Broadcasting. Programming contact is garyblake@bristolbroadcasting.com or call 304-744-7020

Listeners have been complaining that Coach Kidd’s extravagant support of Rodriguez’s controversial decision is disrespectful to the state.

Considering the fragile emotions in the state this week, Hill said Coach Kidd was warned three times to change the subject away from his glee over Rodriguez’s move.

It’s a FOOTBALL TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disrespectful to the state? Huh? Pacman Jones and Chris Henry sticking around on campus wasn’t disrespectful? 

WVU CONTINUES TO FEEL STING OF HUGGINS BAD KARMA

December 20, 2007

 wvu.jpg

Mountaineer fans loved it when the school stole Bob Huggins from poor K-State back in April.

Yet, they were up in arms this week, calling new Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez a traitor among other things. Now schools are beginning to pillage and plunder Coach Rod’s old recruiting class. What goes around, comes around.

Thursday, a star Florida RB told Morgantown no thanks.

Onterio McCalebb dumped WVU and chose Rutgers over Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Kentucky and South Florida.    

MOUNTAINEER MORONS HAVE SHORT MEMORIES

December 18, 2007

rodriguez.jpg 

The whining eminating from Morgantown is hilarious. The WVU fans are livid that Rich Rodriguez bolted for Michigan. Terms like traitor, liar, lack of character, a man’s word, betrayal, etc. are being thrown around. Isn’t it odd that the “Morons” didn’t echo these sentiments back in April when we saw these headlines…

Bob Huggins Leaves Kansas State for West Virginia ..

Students angered by Huggins’ exit

WVU is getting exactly what is deserves. The school’s football and basketball programs have always had a ‘win at all costs” mentality. Payback is a bitch. 

Better yet, we never heard WVU fans using the “lack of character or classless” terminology when describing scumbags like Pacman Jones and Chris Henry as they terrorized Morgantown on Rich Rod’s watch.

The biggest hypocrite is West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin, who went on a rant about how flawed the college system is. 

“High-priced agents” are to blame.” writes Manchin, “[U]nfortunately, over the last two years, I have seen Rich become a victim of a college coaching system driven by high-priced agents that has turned those dreams into just another back-room business deal…I wish Rich and his family nothing but the best, but I challenge everyone in our state and across this country to start looking more closely at the system that we’ve allowed these agents to create, because in the end, it serves no one well but them.”   

Why didn’t he have the same scathing remarks back in April when WVU robbed K-State of their head coach?
