Musings of a (D.C.) Sports Nut

If I want to talk about sports in general, here's the place!!

Who’d think…?

When’s the last time you saw the Wizards finish above .500…and Michael Jordan wasn’t wearing a Wizards uniform?

image

Yeah, I know. Blows one’s mind, don’t it? But they’re in the playoffs. Finally, Ted Leonsis made good on his promise to fix the basketball side of his empire.

image

Build a supporting cast around John Wall, and good things will happen. How deep the Wizards go, is anybody’s guess.
But it’ll be fun to watch…unlike the Caps.

image

Kinda sums up our feelings towards this season, don’t it? LMAO
(I actually have a Caps-oriented blog on Blogger, but I’ll continue on with this…lol)
Anyway, this has been a disappointment for us Caps fans. My take on this, is George McPhee needs to be fired as GM. Keep Adam Oates, but McPhee goes. Plain and simple.

image

Also, find the dead weight on this team and cut it. See who’s down at Hershey, who’s NHL-ready, and give them a chance to make an impact on the team.

image

Guess that’s it. Hope you enjoy reading this…lol

It’s hard to enjoy this…

Since I’ve linked this blog (as well as my Nats blog on Blogger) to a new site where it should have more people reading…this particular entry is a test of sorts.
So, might as well get some use out of this…lol

image

Well, that ought to get people to notice. Just shows how much we Skins fans flat-out despise those shitholes from Dallas…LMAO

image

God, I love these pictures. And to think they signed Tony Romo to a contract extension…for what? Fricking choke artist, is what he is.

image

As opposed to our new savior in burgundy & gold…one Robert Griffin III. (Okay, I know you all want to point out the Seattle game in the playoffs. Fine. I don’t care.)
Anyway, I for one would rather that RGIII wait until maybe Week 3 before stepping onto the field to start his season. But, who knows?
Just so we can see a 2013 version of this:

image

So much fun to stick the shiv in deeper to those Cowturd/Iggles “fans”…lol
Now to just get the Wizards fixed up right…

image

But, that’s for another day.

Amazing, what my YouTube “posse” asks of me sometimes…lol
So, since my “homie” Dre (you can find him here…and here) begged me for this, here is the written edition.
But first, an explanation…

image

As should be fairly obvious, we DC sports fans simply abhor the arrogant assclowns from Philadelphia. (Booing Santa gets you that label. Duh.) I could go on ad nauseum, but you get the picture.
So, what started this was some dumbass from Philly prattled on about how the Phillies had won 4 straight NL East titles–that is, until last season.

image

Whereupon I used the phrase “Philly cunt”…and used this little smiley: :P
Oh, and the word “fucktard” to describe Philly fans in general.
You would’ve thought I’d just flown a jetliner into the World Trade Center, judging from the reactions from my timeline on Twitter.

image

Yeah, that picture sums up the reactions from these Philly blowjobs…lol
I don’t apologize for this, people. (The above picture, or my opinions on sports fans outside the DC area.)
But this got me thinking. So, here is our view of the totem pole that is the American sports fan(s) as it relates to DC sports fans.
We absolutely despise: Cowturd/Penguins/(overall) Philly sports fans.
We have animosity for: (overall) Philly sports fans/(baseball) Cardinals/Braves fans.
We have tolerance for: NY sports/Pirates/Steelers/Hurricanes/Lightning fans.
Everybody else…we leave alone. I think that covers everything…lol

image

So, I hope my homie Dre’s happy with this piece. It ain’t a YouTube vid, like he wanted…but it’ll do.
Meanwhile, hit me up here if you like (or not like) this.

New challenge coming for “Redskins” trademark

leave a comment »


No mtter what name you TRY to come up with to replace “Redskins”…hardcore/diehard fans (like me) will NEVER call ‘em anything else. See what happened when Abe Pollin renamed the Bullets? Never been the same…
So, fuck all of you…and Hail to the REDSKINS!!

Hell of a (sports) year in D.C., ain’t it been?

leave a comment »


As I write this, we’re about an hour away from the Sunday night game involving the Redskins and the fucking Cowturds…for the winner, the NFC East title; the loser goes home. Period.
(So you’ll allow me to state the obvious here…HTTR!!)

image

And also, the reason the Skins are even in this in the first place…

image

When I said back in April that Robert Griffin III was the savior of this Redskins franchise, some people laughed at my ass. Who’s laughing now, clowns?
But this is just how the sports year has been in the D.C. area in 2012. The other big story…well, let this next picture give you a hint:

image

Yeah, I know. It’s overkill for some of you, seeing Bryce Harper like this. But, he’s just part of the story that is the 2012 Nationals.

image

So is Michael Morse. So is Jayson Werth. So’s Adam LaRoche.

image

But, what everyone chose to obsess on the entire season…was the whole Stephen Strasburg “shutdown” non-story. I won’t bore you all with this bullshit again, so let me move on…
I predicted before the season the Nats would go 85-77 (and finish 3rd in the NL East). Boy, was I surprised!!

image

Winning the division was a surprise, really. Watching Drew Storen have a meltdown in Game 5 of the NLDS was a nightmare for Nats fans.
(Then again, Teddy finally winning a President’s Race was a shock, too…lol)

image

At any rate, we’ve shut everybody up as to the real power in the NL East now. Next year, a World Series in D.C.—just like I said 5 yrs ago, when I began my Nats blog (first for MLBlogs, and now for Blogger).
Now, the bad part(s)…
The Wizards I won’t go into, and until the fucking NHL lockout is settled the Caps can wait.

image

But all in all, it was fun to enjoy baseball and football in the DMV this year…and as I said at the start of this entry, we ain’t done with the Skins YET!!

image

So with that, Happy New Year people!!

The last one

leave a comment »


Yes, it’s Wednesday.
The Nationals’ season ended last Friday night.
No, I didn’t do this…though it would’ve been a good idea at the time:

image

I’ve just been trying to sort out just what the fuck happened.
The night started off so well, with Bryce Harper & Ryan Zimmerman helping the Nats get off to a 6-0 lead. Up until the top of the 7th, no one panicked.
This next story is true. At the bar I was at Friday night, when Edwin Jackson took to the mound, a fellow Nats fan…wearing (I shit you not) a “Don’t Be a Clown, Bro!” T-shirt…put his head in his hands. If only I paid attention…
At any rate, we were all fine. That is, right up to the point where Drew Storen began to melt down. As the Cardinals start thinking…we have a chance?

image

Sadly, because of Drew…and Ian Desmond…they did. Thus, what had been an early 6-0 lead for the Nats…became instead a 9-7 Cardinals win.
And I’m left with this entry…the last one in my “sharing” format with Google+/Twitter/Blogger. Since none of you bothered to follow the links, I stop as of now. However…
If you still want to see what Friday night was like, there are a pair of videos…made w/my cellphone camera…on my YouTube channel. (The 2nd one is from when I got home, and is a postmortem to the game/night.)
So there it is. No Natitude till spring training.

Am I still breathing?

image

I don’t have the words to say at this time, to describe what I’m feeling.
I’m still in shock…and it’s been 40+ minutes since Game 4 of the NLDS ended.
Jayson Werth has officially become a sports god in DC, by depositing a ball into the LF bullpen to win it for the Nationals by a 2-1 score over the Cardinals.

image

But, if Ian Desmond doesn’t make the catch of his life in the top of the 9th, this blog entry doesn’t happen. So yeah, this is why I waited 34 fucking years for baseball to come back to Washington!!

image

But damn it, I missed Frank Howard throwing out the 1st pitch today. I keep hoping they’ll bring in Del Unser to do it tomorrow night for Game 5.
(I have a selfish reason for it. He’s the guy who coined the phrase “GO NASTY NATS!!”…which is why my Twitter account is called what it is.)

image

Ross Detwiler started this game…

image

and Drew Storen ended it. Along the way, Jordan Zimmermann and Tyler Clippard struck out 6 out of 7 Cardinals…a walk w/2 out in the 8th in-between.
Now, I just hope my cell phone holds up. Because I won’t be home; I need to be in a bar for Game 5. No joke.
