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.

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!!

“Social” media, sports and hypocrisy…what’s wrong with THIS picture?

with one comment


Boston Bruins

A little late on this topic, I admit. I tried to write this last night (via my phone app), but no go. So…

It’s been 4 days since the Capitals won Game 7 of their 1st round series against the Bruins. Meaning it’s been 4 days since Joel Ward was subjected to such a vicious attack on his character (not to mention his color) on Twitter.

First–for the benefit of Boston sports fans–a history lesson, followed by the hypocrisy of it all.

The NEW backup for the Caps?

 

Does the name Willie O”Ree mean anything to you, Boston? Just in case it slipped your collective memories, I’ll refresh ’em for you:

Willie O’Ree, in 1958…April of that year, some 6 weeks before I showed up on this planet…was called up by the (wait for it) Boston Bruins!! In doing this, the NHL became integrated. Now, what happened next in Boston ties into the point I’m making.

In the mid ’70s, a federal judge there ordered that black schoolchildren were to be bussed into the neighborhoods of South Boston…lily-white South Boston, I might add. Needless to say, it didn’t go so well. I’m willing to bet, to this day there are still people there with racist attitudes over this.

Which leads me back to last week, and Twitter.

To think that the assholes responsible for cyber-assaulting Joel Ward could be the descendents of these South Boston racists of the mid-’70s…is not that far beyond the realm. Notice I said “could”, NOT “are”. Keep that in mind.

It’s just I find it ironically hypocritical, that the fan base of the team that intergrated the NHL chose to inject racism into a Stanley Cup playoff game. Now, I’m the first one to tell you not ALL Bruins fans are like these skinhead bozos…just as not all Redskins fans are drunken boozehounds. (Believe me, I saw enough of that back when my brother had season tix to the Skins.)

It’s hypocritical to claim the moral high ground when it’s your OWN fan base behaving like assholes. (Witness the idiot who mooned Bryce Harperat the plate Saturday night at Dodger Stadium when he got his 1st hit as a National.) Every team, whether it’s high school/college/pro, has them. And I was glad to see tweets from normal Boston fans who denounced those bums.

Chimera and Ward Celebrate

Thankfully I haven’t seen this type of shit go on as the 2nd round of the playoffs got underway on Saturday night at MSG. Still, it might take the Caps doing to the Rangers what the Bruins saw happen to them to set somebody off.

You never know. Anyway, if you want to find me across the social media universe, here are the other places I inhabit:

(The YouTube joint is on hiatus–meaning I’m not making videos right now. Software issue w/YT, is why. Until they fix it, I can’t make ’em.) All the others, you have to join ’em to comment. I erase spam/hate from ’em, too, so you’ve been warned.

I’ve had to rethink my opinion since making this.
