Rattlers Free Tix: Slight Foobar

Filed under: | Sports | The 48th State

Next Friday night at 1930 hours at USAirways Arena…the Arizona Rattlers return to action, hosting the Chicago Rush. The tickets are FREE!
So I went to a nearby NAPA auto parts store to score a couple about 40 minutes ago. Trouble was, they were already gone; the tickets were given away four hours earlier than they were supposed to be. So the guy out front gave us a local number to call, I called it, and the guy I spoke to said he’d mail us two, and I should get them either Tuesday or Wednesday.
At least NAPA made it right.

A Bulls**t OT Argument

Filed under: | Sports

I find it ironic that a New Orleans Saint is whining about the recent NFL overtime rule change, where teams now get one poessession each, and if they are still tied after those, then it goes into Sudden Death.
Jonathan Vilma (who is a linebacker) sounds like a damn el cubo in accusing owners of making the rules change in favor of Brett Favre. OK, quit your bitchin’ and next season, kick their a** during regulation so you don’t have to put yourself through OT!

March Madness Begins Today

Filed under: | Sports

Got your brackets filled out? I do, actually, and so does my wife. My Final Four are Kentucky, Duke, Florida, and Michigan State. She also has Kentucky and Duke, but her other two are Ohio State and Syracuse. Should be Chinese interesting.
And in case anyone’s keeping track…Президент Оба́ма has given Kansas the Kiss of Death.
Let’s all have some fun now!

Truer Words Were Never Spoken

Filed under: | Sports | War on Terror

The Gold Medal game for Men’s Hockey begins in approximately one-half hour: Canada vs. the USA. One particular group of Fans have let the USA Hockey Team know that they support them all the way. In the words of General Manager Brian Burke:

“The real heroes in America don’t wear hockey uniforms, they wear police uniforms, they wear camo, they wear fire uniforms, and we want our players to understand that what we do is small potatoes compared to what those people do.”

Of course, neither Президент Оба́ма nor the Demo☭rats have ever understood this, and they never will.
GO USA!


UPDATE (1620 MST): Final Score, in OT: Canada 3, USA 2. What a game!

Medal Standings

Filed under: | Sports

Here’s where things stand after fifteen days of competition, eh:

Canada should definitely be happy. After all, they have more Gold Medals than we do, so I’d say “Own The Podium” is a success, eh.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Filed under: | Sports | War on Terror

Why, everything, especially if you’re a member of that august body of sports elitists known as the IOC.

It’s assumed that supporting the troops of any nation which fights to preserve their way of life, which includes the holding of the Olympics, is a political statement. Remember Salt Lake City in 2002? We brought in the flag which flew over the WTC and survived 9/11 as our flag…and the el cubos (not to mention the IOC) went apes**t. So this reaction to the hockey masks shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Olympic Roundup, Eh

Filed under: | Great White North | Sports

You know, for the life of me I cannot remember the last time I actually sat down and watched the Olympics on TV. It was kinda nice to be able to do that with my wife. I got a big kick out of seeing The Great One, who is without a doubt the best Hockey player in history but sucked as a coach, light the cauldron. Twice, eh.
Let it also be known that, after the USA, I root for Canada during events such as these, eh.
Here are some stories which are already emerging from Vancouver:

18-0? IS THAT ALL? Here’s another spewing of Political Correctness regarding running up the score, but it ain’t coming from Canada, eh.

ANARCHISTS MAR OLYMPIC PROTESTS: Leave it to these guys to frak up peaceful demonstrations against the Games. I hope the Cops bust some more heads, eh.

DONOVAN BAILEY TORCH SNUB: He still can’t figure out why, and neither can I, eh.

Walker Wins MMA Debut

Filed under: | Sports

Dang! I remember Herschel Walker playing for the New Jersey Generals of the USFL before eventually coming over to the NFL, playing for the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings.
Now, he’s embarked on a new career at the age of 47: Mixed Martial Arts fighting, and he won his first bout. Good Luck with that, Herschel. There have been a number of athletes who have had two sports careers; Bo Jackson comes to mind, as does Michael Jordan.

The Vikings’ Prayer

Filed under: | Sports

Saw this over at Facebook. I guess we’ll see how they do against the Saints on Sunday:

Our Favre who art in Mississippi,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy bowl will come, it will be won,
In Miami as it is in the Dome.
Give us this Sunday, Our weekly win.
Give us touchdown passes, but do not let others pass against us.
Lead us not into frustration, but deliver us to the Super Bowl.
For thine is the MVP, the best of the NFC, and the glory of the Purple People Eaters now and forever.on Saturday.

What, no Amen? Tsk tsk tsk.

Tiger Woo: Cad Extraordinaire

Filed under: | Sports

Man, who actually uses that word anymore? Anyway, with the latest e-mail revelation, Tiger will be lucky if he emerges from Divorce Court with only the 300 million dollars his soon-to-be-ex is likely to get.
And that’s not even counting the other ten alleged mistresses he apparently has or have had in the past. Perhaps he should temporarily leave the golf scene for a while, say a couple of years, and get this stuff figured out.
That said, I have to wonder the timing of Tiger’s troubles. Has anyone noticed it came just as the Senate Demo☭rats hammered away at the Оба́маcare bill?

OMG! THE LIONS WON!

Filed under: | Sports

The Mrs. and I went to the hot tub late this afternoon to actually celebrate the Lions’ last-minute win over Cleveland, 38-37! Shock of shocks!
Arizona also defeated the St. Louis Rams, 21-13 (see we were at the hot tub celebrating the 2-8 Lions!). Da Bears play Philly later tonight...will they get to take out Michael Vick?

NFL Week 5

Filed under: | Sports

I actually got to watch the Cardinals hold off the Houston Texans, 28-21. The Texans scored three TDs in the second half to pull even with the Cardinals. Then Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s pick with just over 2:00 left, as well as a successful Goal-Line Stance on the 1-yard line with less than a minute to go got the win!
Oh yes, the Lions lost to Pittsburgh, 28-20. At least they put up a good fight, so they aren’t Loins or Lie-Downs this week, at least in my eyes.
