Good bye Michael Floyd

December 30, 2011 Leave a comment

 

Too bad Michael Floyd had to end in Notre Dame career with a loss last night, but this circus catch added to his collection of spectacular highlights.  He is definitely the greatest ND wide receiver of my lifetime.

Career Receptions: 271

Career Receiving yards: 3686

Career Touchdowns: 37

All Notre Dame records.  Imagine what Floyd could have done if he had a real quarterback for the past two years.  The guy is special and would look real nice in either a Bears or Pats uniform next year…just saying.

Clutch game winners against Dallas…that’s how its done Lebron.  Oh…and KD also isn’t the biggest douche bag in the history of sports.

If you didn’t get me a christmas gift its not too late…I NEED THESE POLAR BEARS

December 30, 2011 Leave a comment

 

I know that Polar Bears are the only animal on earth known to hunt humans…but come on…just look at that face.  Absolutely precious.  I didn’t get one of these cute little guys for Christmas, but my birthday isn’t that far off and I can’t think of a better gift for a 26 year-old than twin polar bear cubs.  I would just play with them in the snow and give them all the Coca-Cola they could ever want.

THIS IS HOCKEY!!! A must watch YouTube NHL

December 28, 2011 Leave a comment

“I don’t care how popular the NHL is. I love hockey and you love it and that’s enough for me. It’s a beautiful, addictive game that is immune to extinction. It’s a way of life in Canada and it’s growing in the United States. It is the most intimate of games because it is the most emotional. The “smallness” of the game is its strength. The humility of most of the players, the bond that is found in every rink in North America and the sheer joy of skating on open, clean ice — that’s what makes hockey special.”-John Buccigross  

 

This five minute video combined with this short quote sum up almost all the reasons why I love hockey.  I truly feel bad for those who don’t “get it”.

PS: Could have done without the Burrows highlight in there.   Needed more of this…

The Difference between dogs and cats

December 28, 2011 Leave a comment

(Daily Mail)–This pair of pugs are firm friends with a very special relationship – one acting as the eyes of the other. Franky acts as a guide dog to his fellow pug Elly, helping on walks or to find food and water because she isn’t able to find her own way. The duo, both four years old, are inseparable, with white-coated Elly following Franky everwhere he leads. She sniffs the air to find her friend, the nuzzles into his side to trot along with him. Special relationship: Elly (top), the blind pug, relies on her best friend Franky (bottom) to help her to find her way around on walks and to get food and water. But their special relationship poses a challenge for RSPCA workers who are trying to find a home for them both together. Vets nursed the duo back to health after they were found in poor conditions, and hope someone will come forward who is prepared to house them both together. Elaine Buchan, manager of the RSPCA centre in Newport, South Wales, said: ‘This little duo obviously love each other very much. ‘Franky is extremely boisterous and playful and Elly is very affectionate and cuddly. He looks out for her and provides support while guiding her on walks or to food or water. ‘They both like to partake in doggy delights such as playing with toys and sniffing trees, but it is clear to centre they did not have that life before.’ Inseparable: RSPCA workers in Newport, south Wales, hope that someone will come forward who can offer Elly and Franky a home together. Both Franky and Elly need operations before they can be rehomed, but their vets are confident that the dogs will be a delight to anyone willing to take them in. Mrs Buchan added: ‘There’s absolutely no option of homing them separately as it would break their hearts and also be wholly impractical. ‘They’re great little dogs and I’m already jealous of the lucky owner who will get to care for such a loving pair.’

This article is just a heart melter.  Dogs just being dogs.  One friend loses his sight so the other friend volunteers to be his eyes…for the rest of their lives.  All they want is love and affection and treats and squeaky toys.  They are just the greatest pet ever.

Meanwhile, Cats…

Just trying to kill his best friend the second he turns his back.

Wisconsin Badgers +6 vs Oregon Ducks

Bro, its Space Mountain…not Tower of Terror.  Relax.  It’s not supposed to be scary, take a cue from the kid in the 3rd row.  He is like 8 years old and bored out of his mind.  I already think LaMichael James is kind of a pussy because of that Barry Bonds style elbow pad he wears.  Now he is pissing himself on ride you only have to be 40 inches to ride.  Take Wisconsin on the moneyline and the spread.  Guarantee you Montee Ball isn’t scared of a Disneyland ride.

PS: The scariest ride at Disney is without out a doubt the tea cups.  Vomit is disgusting and there is a 95% chance either me or somebody else on that ride is going to puke.  Count me out.

 

 

Dumbass White Sox fan cries about getting Cubs gift

December 28, 2011 Leave a comment

 

How old is this little girl? I am the worst at guessing kids ages. I am gonna say that she is under 8…which means that she gets to switch her favorite team and nobody can say anything.  Kids switch their allegiances all the time…which is part of the reason I hate kids.  Her mom just gave her a free pass to be a North-Side baseball fan and this chick passed on it like a moron.  I’ve got news for you sweetheart…the Cubs are gonna be awesome.  Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon…and for the rest of Theo Epstein’s life.  Meanwhile the White Sox are set up to suck for the better part of the next decade.  This city is gonna burn to the ground when Theo brings a World Series to Chicago and this girl can either party with the rest of us or sulk in her Alex Rios jersey.

Oh China is so smart and great blah blah blah…FALSE

If you are a guy and you can’t throw I have zero respect for you.  I don’t care if you are some genius, artist, painter, computer wiz…if you throw a ball like a Streisand I can’t take you seriously.  So how on Earth am I supposed to respect China when they can’t throw a grenade out of their own trench?  Yeah…we owe China a bazillion dollars…so what?  I say we just don’t pay them.  What are they gonna do about it? They can’t even throw a ball…how tough can they be?

Luke Ridnour’s ankles collapse

December 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Solid effort there Luke.  He has to be low man on the point guard totem pole in Minnesota now right?  Ricky Rubio is throwing 40-foot bounce passes for easy lay-ups.  JJ Barea is still dating Miss Universe.  Ridnour doesn’t even have any ankles left.  Blown out.  done. He should embrace his inner Brian Scalabrine  and just pick up a towel.  Get your cheerleader on.
