Sox Hazing The September Call-Ups By Making Them Dress In Costumes And Sing

        Pretty funny but not sure anything is more humiliating than having to wear the jersey of a 68-88 last place team.           PS – I probably wouldn’t have even blogged this but Papi participating cracked me up. “You guys doing something fun? Cool, I want in. I’ll [...]

PS – I probably wouldn’t have even blogged this but Papi participating cracked me up. “You guys doing something fun? Cool, I want in. I’ll be a mariachi dude.”

PPS – Will Ferrell is on the Sox? Oh wait no that’s Rusney. Spitting image.

Just Win Baby?

        The o-line sucked. Solder got ABUSED. Brady had flashes as Brady but looked bad often. The whole offense was boring and unimaginative and off, again. A horrible Raiders team marched down the field way too easily versus the defense. Revis was certainly not a shutdown corner. Basically everyone but Chandler Jones [...]

 

 

 

 

The o-line sucked. Solder got ABUSED. Brady had flashes as Brady but looked bad often. The whole offense was boring and unimaginative and off, again. A horrible Raiders team marched down the field way too easily versus the defense. Revis was certainly not a shutdown corner. Basically everyone but Chandler Jones sucked. But, I’ll take an ugly win over an ugly loss. At the end of the day 2-1 is 2-1. They don’t ask how, they ask how many.

 

 

PS – If you want to know a little trick on how my brain will work this one out: Super Bowl teams find ways to win ugly, sloppy games and step up when it’s on the line. Keep telling yourself that all week, eventually you’ll be convinced (probably not, but do try.)

Marky Mark Leaves Mr. Kraft Hangin’ Like A Motherfucker On The TD Celebration

        C’mon Mark! If you’re in Bob Kraft’s box and the man demands a high five, then you give him a goddamn high five! None of this “if I don’t acknowledge that they touched me maybe they’ll leave me alone” shit that you give to your girlfriend when the game is on. [...]

The two most powerful men in Foxboro have now been left to celebrate alone. Damn shame.

The Oakland Raiders Have Made it So I Don’t Hate Them. And I Hate Them For It

  There’s a school of thought that says you’ll never love anything – nothing you’ll ever own, no song you will ever hear, no movie you’ll ever see, no athlete or team you’ll ever root for – as much as the ones you loved when you were a kid.  And it’s a thought I wholeheartedly [...]

There’s a school of thought that says you’ll never love anything – nothing you’ll ever own, no song you will ever hear, no movie you’ll ever see, no athlete or team you’ll ever root for – as much as the ones you loved when you were a kid.  And it’s a thought I wholeheartedly subscribe to.  You grow up, the world gets more complicated, you slowly realize life sucks and nothing can ever be as black and white as it was when you were five years old until eventually you die in your mansion filled with priceless possessions gasping the name of the sled you had the last time you were truly happy.

But there’s a corollary to that.  I think the same way you never love a team as much as you did when you were little, when you’re at that young, innocent, impressionable age, you learn to hate for life too.  With few exceptions (the Baltimore Ravens for example) every team I truly despise I hated when I was still in Patriots footie pajamas (child size that is, not the Adult Mediums I have now).  The Yankees, obviously.  The Canadiens.  I detested the New York Giants a lifetime before they killed part of my soul twice.  And that’s why the Oakland Raiders will forever be in the top five of All Time Enemies List.  The Raiders of my youth were the 90s Pistons X the 2010′s Miami Heat to the power of the Ravens.  If ever there was a franchise where hating them brought joy into your life, it was them.  And I’m not talking about a small sample; their’s was a pure vile, loathesome detestablility that spanned decades.  The ’76 Wild Card Roughing the Passer Game where the Patriots got robbed by the biggest bag job I’ve ever seen in professional sports.  The ’78 preseason game where Jack Tatum cheapshotted a defenseless Daryl Stingley into a wheelchair where he spent the rest of his all-too-brief life.  The ’85 playoff game where the Pats beat them in LA and Matt Millen punched out Pats GM Pat Sullivan.  (OK, Millen deserved a medal for that, but still.)  Not to mention generations of buffoony, costumed, fake tough guy assholes in the stands.  I hate the Raiders so much one of my crushing disappointments is that the refs got the Tuck Rule right in the Snow Bowl.  I honestly wish they’d gotten it wrong just to make up for ’76 and because it would go up Raider fans’ asses sideways even worse than it does.

But now they come to town and… I got nothing.  I can’t even care anymore, much less get worked up about them.  It’s like the Raiders I knew and hated went out of business.  Instead of being evil, they’re just irrelevant.  The Raiders are football’s Cuba: You know there was a time they were  a big deal and gave everybody something to worry about, but now they’re just a bunch of sad sacks you feel sorry for.  I mean, where’s the Delta I used to know?  Huh?  Where’s the guts?  What I wouldn’t give now for Al Davis and his track suit saying all sorts of crazy shit.  Or to bring back true vicious badasses like Tatum, Millen or George Atkinson, who once told a newspaper “Fuck Russ Francis, that sissy.”  As much as the Raiders have done things to make me hate them, at the moment they’ve done the one thing I can’t forgive.  They’ve made it impossible to hate them.

“There’s Some Things You Can Cover Up, And Some Things You Can’t” – Ray Lewis

PS – I really can’t decide if it’s crazier that ESPN puts Ray Lewis out there every weekend or if he agrees to go out. Like when I tell a lie and get away with something, the last thing I want to do is keep talking about things comparable to it. If I were Lewis I’d be calling in sick every week.
