Musings of a (D.C.) Sports Nut

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.

The last one

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.

A few words on last night…

As I watch the Triple-A All-Star Game on MLB Network…so I can see Corey Brown representing the Syracuse Chiefs (the Nats’ AAA team)…my mind wanders back to lastnight.

2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game

Meaning, the MLB All-Star Game. Look, for the record, no one will even care about the final score (8-0 NL). Instead, it’ll be about the plays in the field.
Which brings me to…

image

…these guys, and social media. I have more than a few observations on this, so grab hold of something.
This may take a while
1) All right, so Bryce Harper lost a ball in the lights and got caught in a rundown. Everybody has done it at one time or another. But it just seemed (to me, anyway) that Twitter Nation obsessed sadistically over this.

image

People, it’s the All-Star Game...not a fucking Senate confirmation hearing. How many hate tweets were there when Mike Trout screwed up in the OF?
Go ahead, I’ll wait…

Mike Trout

2) While I’m on the topic, how many other hate tweets on other players were any of you reading? There should be a fucking moratorium on this shit during the All-Star break, to be honest with you.
(Except I would’ve loved for Matt Wieters or Adam Jones to just smack a ball back upside Cole Hamels’ head, as payback for this douche drilling Bryce earlier this year and bragging about it…LMMFAO)

image

3) The crowd in Kansas City got it, when they cheered Chipper Jones. That’s class, ladies and gentlemen. Also, nice of Chipper to basically pass the torch to Bryce, Mike Trout, etc. after the game. He gets it.
Shit, I hate to admit it…but I’m gonna miss the dude when he retires at the end of the season. Once upon a time, he was the standard at 3B. And how I would love for someone to say that about Ryan Zimmerman when he decides to hang ’em up…which ain’t gonna be for quite some time yet!!

image

OK, gang, I’m done ranting here. Now to get back to the game…lol
Oh yeah, I have to troll for followers to my Nats blog. I only have one person following it…and he’s a Mets fan!! I need more people to read my shit.

image

Okay, now I’m done.

It won’t be long NOW…

It’s 1:40 on Thursday afternoon as I’m writing this, with no score between the Nats and Mets after 2 1/2 innings.
At this time tomorrow, I should be somewhere between New Haven and Providence en route to Boston to see the Nats take on the Red Sox that night.
Well, me and this douchebag:

image

My brother Larry. (He’s in the middle, w/me on the right.) Don’t sweat this, people; he doesn’t know I write this blog…lol
Anyway, back to my point.
Before he retires from the government in January, he wanted to see Fenway Park…and talked me into going along. (Willingly, I might add.) I figured I may never do this myself, so at least I’ll be able to say I saw a Red Sox game once in my lifetime.
Oh, did I neglect to mention who’ll be pitching for the Nats tomorrow night?

image

Shows you what a rainout can do to have this fall into your lap…lol
First place Nats…man, that sounds so fucking good to say!!

image

So anyway, back to the trip…
Having to leave here close to 4 am is a bitch, I admit. Being trapped for 40+ hours w/my brother, would almost make me beg for a one-way ticket to Auschwitz…

image

But like I said before, it’s worth it…all $200 of it. (That’s what I gotta hand over to him to pay for all this. Subway[s] rides, Amtrak ride, hotel room…motherfucker!!)
With any luck, I’ll try to write about this on my Nats blog (http://nastynatslivehereandeverywhere.blogspot.com)…so try and follow that one, okay? Here’s some other places I write:

“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.

Ward

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:

Crazy (football) day, you ask?

   Tim Tebow, a player on the Denver Broncos Amer...

Palmer and Peyton Manning 10/29/2006

Just when we were all settled down from the Peyton Manning press conference yesterday in Denver, it appears Pat Bowlen and John Elway made good on their guarantee to ship Tim Tebow‘s ass out of the Mile-High City.
To, the…J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS?? Who saw this one coming? If I’m Mark Sanchez, here’s what should be the first words out of his mouth:
“I’m not playing second fiddle to this fucking garbonze!!”*
(*old M*A*S*H reference. Google it…lol)
Anyway, here’s what I wanted to say. The betting pool is on as to who gets the opportunity to take Tebow’s ass out. (MY money’s on Mario Williams, now that he’s in Buffalo.)
My new hashtag on Twitter will say it all: #SnapTebowsLegsLikeAWishbone

image

Because, let’s face it. The offense this fucking skivosa runs is better suited to arena football than to the NFL. So I say let’s hurry up the process…lol
(And yes, the sickening image of Joe Theismann writhing on the ground @RFK after Lawrence Taylor snapped his leg is still fresh in my mind over 1/4 century later. Just so you know.)
Note, BTW, I said “betting pool” and not “bounty”. Keep that in mind, folks.

This’ll be so much fun for all of you to read on Twitter…LMAO

English: Drew Brees warming up in Wembley Stad...

Steve Czaban, who used to work at ESPN 980 in D.C. (before Dan Snyder fired him), is tweeting this:
“RT @czabe I’m 50x more pissed off the Saints are penny pinching Brees than I am about Pay4Slay. 10 teams ready to give Brees 20m per. Let us at him!”
You’re serious about this, Czabe? You want Drew Brees here:

image

Should I assume this would be if Peyton Manning does not wish to wear Burgundy and Gold?

image

I mean I have respect for you and all, Czabe, but…just what the hell are you smoking? There’s a reason that seal is laughing, you know.
You yourself have pointed out over the years how the “Prima Danna” has turned this once proud franchise into an obscenity. And you seriously believe the Redskins should take a stab at Drew Brees?
Yeah, rightimage
