Musings of a (D.C.) Sports Nut

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

Requests…I get requests…

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: 😛
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.

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!!

Mea culpa. There, I’ve said it.

I apologize. Profusely.
I couldn’t understand the whole “Lin-sanity” deal surrounding Jeremy Lin of the Knicks. It looked (to me, anyway) like the NBA hype machine was working overtime.
After watching the highlights of the Knicks game, I need to shut the fuck up.
10 points…but 13 assists tonight!!
I am convinced this is, without question, the most UN-selfish player I’ve ever seen. He knows his role, and shuts his mouth (to quote Dwayne Johnson, aka “the Rock”).
What I’m saying is, I totally get it now. I’m all in on the “Linsanity” deal.
Trust me, this post shows up on Twitter…so you can read this for yourselves.

Boldly going where this blog has NEVER gone before…

Well, this should be fun…lol
I’m watching the Wizards game right now…and writing this blog on my cell phone. Yes, you read right…on my cell phone!!
Ain’t modern technology wonderful, people?

image

At any rate, now I can have something to do to distract me from how pathetic the Wizards are…and true to form, they’re trailing Oklahoma City 14-5 in the 1st quarter.
Now if I can do this on my Caps blog, I’ll be so happy!!

It’s (not) good to be “King”

leave a comment »


LeBron James and Dwyane Wade

Image by Keith Allison via Flickr

     So there you have it. “King” LeBron James proved last night, that it doesn’t make a shit whether it’s Cleveland or Miami–he won’t EVER win a NBA title!!

     At first I didn’t give a rat’s ass about watching the NBA Finals. But then I flip on ESPN2, and they’re putting up tweets about how “King” LeBron is fucking up. So, off to ABC to watch the last 5+ minutes of Game 6.

     Say what you want about Dirk Nowitzki, but the bastard’s committed to wanting to win. He showed that last night…although I’m troubled by his heading for the locker room before the final buzzer. (Granted, he came out for the trophy presentation…and weren’t we all waiting for the look on David Stern‘s face if he were to hand the trophy to Mark Cuban, given Cuban’s track record??)

     Anyway, we were talking about “King” LeBron, weren’t we?

     I can only guess how the sports yack radio universe in Miami went off after the game. Yeah, LeBron’s a motherfucker, ain’t he? And what was up with having Dwyane Wade sitting next to him at the postgame press conference? (Especially when somebody posed the “choke” question to LBJ…and D-Wade had it handed off to him? You that much of a pussy, LeBron?)

     Hey, (city of) Miami, you wanted him there. DEAL WITH IT!!
