Just saw this on Twitter and thought it was great so I wanted to share it. We’ve been lucky enough to hang out with Pete and the Frates a lot in the last year and they’re really the nicest people in the entire world. They’re passionately dedicated to helping find a cure for ALS and raising awareness. They’ve got an awesome support group of friends and family and what they’ve accomplished in the last year with the Ice Bucket Challenge was one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen. So it’s great to see them receive the recognition that they so rightly deserve. Tip of the cap to the Frates and the MLB.
PS – Buy some Frate Train gear and support the cause
Let’s do this thing! FYI – All my credit cards got denied cause of gambling restrictions or some shit like that. I had to deposit money through the E-CHECKS option which took 1 second maybe two. I also have seen Smitty bragging about how he’s like Moneymaker or something. Can’t wait to send his ass packing.

Ben Volin, Boston.com – Bill Belichick has a specific set of rules that his players must abide by, and Darrelle Revis discovered Tuesday that being a superstar doesn’t buy you any leeway. Revis, playing his first season in New England following seven years with the Jets and Buccaneers, was absent from Tuesday’s practice, but not for health reasons. According to three league sources, Revis arrived late to the Patriots facility that morning, and Belichick sent him home for the day instead of allowing him to participate in practice and meetings. The Patriots were off from Saturday to Monday following last Thursday’s win over the Jets, and Revis didn’t show up on time when the players reconvened at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. One source close to Revis said Revis has accepted responsibility for his actions and understands that the team’s rules apply to all players.
Since this broke broke there’s been some aspersions cast upon the story because Felger and Mazz’ intern Twitter follows Darrelle Revis’ business manager (Note: a kid with that level of dedication to the business is going rule the sports world some day) who apparently Tweeted “Wrong!” before taking it down. Whatever. For the purposes of the discussion I’ll presume Ben Volin is right here, Revis did show up late and was sent home and does feel bad about it and does take responsibility. Considering that 24 hours ago I was worried he was hurt, I’ll take this as a preferable alternative any time.
Now of course we’re already getting the sports radio angry mob grabbing their pitchforks and lighting their torches and storming the castle to destroy the monster Belichick over this. Like it’s his fault Revis can’t show up on time. Rules is rules. The Hooded One expects people to be on time. If you’re late, you’re sent home and it doesn’t matter if you’re a 53rd-man Special Teamer or the best cornerback of your generation. And it sounds like Revis respects that. When the Tardy Boys incident happened in 2009, supposedly Randy Moss, Gary Guyton and Derrick Burgess all came back to the stadium later on to watch film. The only one who bitched about it was Adalius Jetson, a notorious, team-killing, selfish malcontent who felt like somehow he was above the rule. Despite the fact that upwards of 100 other players, coaches and assistants all made it to the stadium on time that day. Including Ty Warren who was his next door neighbor, and a certain superstar franchise GOAT quarterback who’s wife had a baby the day goddamned before. Assuming Revis took it like a man… which I am… then no one else should have any problem with his coach treating him like one. But of course this is Belichick we’re talking about, so this is just another example of his “arrogance” and putting himself above it all and driving free agents away and THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!!! Funny how those same angry trolls don’t have a problem with, say Tom Coughlin, who’s famous for punishing guys if they show up 14 minutes early for meetings, because he expects them 15 minutes early. Nope. In this Bizarro World we find ourselves living in, Bill Belichick gets ripped for treating everybody fairly. And only Belichick. @JerryThornton1

Horse racing just got put on notice. Weirdhaircutseth is official and he’s here to play. As long as he don’t have to throw footballs I don’t know how he’ll ever lose. My only complaint is that he’s not more grey. But the red hair and red coat kind of make it a no brainer. Do it Weirdhaircutset! Do it!
Sure this was probably racist, but who gives a fuck. This was way more entertaining than any Duckboat Tour. In fact this should be a thing. Let all the pussies and little girls go on the boring tour guides. Give me the X rated city tours. Just letting it fly with f bombs and off color jokes. Telling me the real dirt about a city. Put a bar and some stripper poles in there and boom you’re good to go. Can I copyright this idea by just screaming “I COPYRIGHT THIS!” Because I just did so now it’s my intellectual property.
PS – Love the golf clap from the crowd after her rant. I need to sell tshirts to tourists. They’re happy with anything.
SOURCE – The World Boxing Council, one of the four major organisations which sanctions championship boxing bouts, has decided to shorten women’s bouts… because of periods. In a statement published on its website, the Mexico City-based non-profit said its first World Female Convention decided to shorten championship bouts from 12 rounds to just 10. At the same time the WBC decided individual rounds should last no longer than two minutes, as opposed to the three-minute rounds of men’s competition. Menstruation was given as one of four key reasons why women’s boxing matches should not last as long as men’s, a list based on ‘several facts … reported during the convention which are of total concern.’ ‘A female fighter used to fight 10 x 2 which is 20 minutes, would need tremendous effort to adjust to 12 x 3 which is 36 minutes. ‘Menstrual cycle has tremendous impact on the body of a woman, including 12 hormones which act in the body system, creating radical changes in several areas. The organisation has come under fire online for failing to come up with any facts to back up its claims.
Ha! Classic chicks bleeding out of their vaginas and being worse at sports than men, amirite fellas? The WBC just telling it like it is: the only reason that women should be exerting themselves for 36 minutes is if they’re making a sandwich platter or giving a vigorous yet tender blowjob. Any reason other than that and their weird lady hormones start acting up and who knows what’ll happen; they’ll probably break down crying in the middle of the ring and slamming pints of Ben & Jerry’s and handfuls of Midol between rounds. God help us if any bears get a whiff of the menstruation. When you boil it down it’s a safety issue for the ladies having their little in-ring catfight and everyone in the crowd.
Now, is any of that based on science? No, but fuck science. Science is for nerds just like vacuuming is for broads. Leave the boxing to the men and the upstanding organizations like the WBC that run it. After all, it’s not like boxing organizations have made the wrong call at every turn for 20 years and strangled the life out of a once great sport to the point that the average guy barely cares about one fight a year. With a track record like that, I don’t need facts to know they’re making the right call.
PS: Thanks for the material WBC, but let’s go back to pretending periods don’t exist now, k?
