Umm…who wants some free shit?

Got a package out of the blue from New Era.  No idea why.  I mean I thought the Cubs game in a luxury box and two bags of product would be the end of our relationship, but I think they just love me.  Like maybe even more than I love them.  Anyways, I’ve got a shit load of great hats and t-shirts to give away.  I feel like I should do some sort of contest.  First contest…come up with an awesome contest.  Winner gets a New Era hat and a t-shirt.

PS: Miami delenda est

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.

 

White Sox Shut Down Jake Peavy

Peavy was highly recruited throughout the country several years ago…he came to Chicago…and its safe to say that his career has been a disappointment.

Cleveland Guy Makes Adam Dunn Portrait Out Of Legos Like Loser

July 25, 2011 1 comment

Just when I thought Cleveland couldn’t suck anymore than they already do, some nerd goes and makes a Lego portrait of Adam Dunn.  Is there a more worthless guy to construct a Lego portrait of? He couldn’t even pick a guy from his own city? This is probably the best thing to come out of Cleveland in years, so pathetic. I guess spending hours making a portrait of the worst guy in Chicago is still better than making a portrait of anybody in Cleveland. This portrait of Adam Dunn is 2X2 feet and made up of 5000 Legos in a wooden frame.  But, guess what…this guy is a complete fraud.  This loser GLUED the Lego pieces together.  Pretty sure that’s called cheating.  Totally defeats the whole point of Legos.  I could have reconstructed the Roman Empire to scale as a kid if my mom let use glue.  All this guy did was glue some different color Legos together and didn’t even make it an action shot.  Fail.

Top 5 All-Time Chicago Sports Stars

July 14, 2011 Leave a comment

So ESPN is going to do this thing where they list the top 5 sports figures from every major sports town.  Blowhard Mike Wilbon is in charge of spitting out Chicago’s list…and per usual he totally messed it up.  He just tried to sound smarter than everyone by putting old guys in there that he has never laid eyes on like Red Grange.  I am sure Red Grange was great and was very important to the foundation of the NFL, but that was so long ago that I think he may have even played for the Decator Bears.  He can’t be on this list.  Wilbon also talks about Grange like the NFL wouldn’t exist without him. I find that basically impossible to believe.  The NFL is the shit.  No way one guy from 1924 made it that way by himself.  Wilbon also had Ditka, Payton, Jordan, and I want to say Gale Sayers rounding out his top 5.  Total failure.  Here is the correct list.

1.  Michael Jordan– Obviously. The greatest athlete of all-time has to be the greatest Chicago sports figure of all-time too.

2. Walter Payton– I never saw Sweetness play live because he retired when I was like 3 years old, but real recognize real.  I have seen enough highlights to know that he was the greatest running back who ever lived.

3. Mike Ditka– Hall of fame Tight End as a player, Superbowl Champion Coach, a mustache that would make Wyatt Earp jealous, and an all around bad ass.  Ditka is a winner and an icon.  Has to be on this list.

4. Bobby Hull– The Golden Jet was the best player of his era.  Scored a ton of goals, drank a ton of beers, and won a Stanley Cup.

5. Jonathan Toews– This is a bit of a futures play, Toews still has some work to do, but the guy has already won practically everything possible.  Toews is the perfect hockey player and an absolute stud.

 

Scottie Pippen may have made this list if he wasn’t such a traitor and/or moron.

Ernie Banks may have made this list if he actually won something…but like all other Cubs…he hasn’t.

Dick Butkus probably should be on here…but I can’t take anyone off of this list, so he can be number 6.

I wish Adam Dunn was in the Home Run Derby

July 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Signing Adam Dunn for 4 years and 56 million dollars has to be the worst free agent signing ever.  Not just by the White Sox or in pro sports, but in life.  NewsCorp bought MySpace 6 years ago for $580m and sold it for $35m to Justin Timberlake a couple weeks ago, and I think even they are laughing at Jerry Reisndorf for the Adam Dunn deal.

Dunn’s stat line is almost unbelievable for a Major League player.  I had 3 three hits in my HS baseball career and I think my Batting Average and OPS were higher than Dunn’s. Right now Dunn is hitting .160, with 9 HRs and 117 strikeouts.  The record for strikeouts in a season is 223.  Dunn is going to smash that if he continues to play like this and get at bats.

Having said that…I’d love to see Adam Dunn in the Home Run Derby tonight.  There are two possible outcomes if he were participated.  1) He crushes the ball all over the park like he used to do and that gives him some confidence for the second half of the season, or 2) He breaks the record for strikeouts in a HR Derby.  One would be great for the Southsiders, the other would be great comedy.

 

PS: I despise the HR Derby.  It is one of the worst events in sports.  So boring.  I don’t understand why it gets so much fanfare.  Professional baseball players should be able to hit 500ft homeruns off of their hand selected 58 year-old pitcher who is grooving it for them.  Hearing Chris Berman say “back, back, back, back…gone” 4302 times a night is like nails on my eardrums.  If I watched the Bachelorette, I’d be way more excited for that tonight…but I am guy, so I don’t watch that.  I couldn’t care less if Ashley is going to give a rose to some poor guy who isn’t even that good looking when she is really still in love with Bentley.  But seriously, I don’t watch.

Jerry Reinsdorf wins a “major award”. Its fragile, must be Italian

June 30, 2011 Leave a comment

ChicagoAs the Chicago White Sox prepare to invade Wrigley Field to face the Cubs this weekend for another edition of the Crosstown Series, Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf already should feel like a winner. On June 21, Reinsdorf was one of the recipients of a Jefferson Award, regarded as the “Nobel Prize for public service.”

This sounds like a big deal and everything, but what did he get it for?  The article doesn’t say exactly what his charity work was, so I am going to assume that it’s for giving Adam Dunn a job and 56 million dollars.  I don’t know how he is supposed to feel like a winner.  The White Sox are the worst baseball team in this city not named the Chicago Cubs.

Lock of the Century: Baseball Edition

June 1, 2011 1 comment

Chicago White Sox +130 @Boston Red Sox -145

No way the White Sox keep this up, right?  They have won 6 in a row and two against the Red Sox in Fenway Park.  I always bet against streaks…except my own and I am on fire right now after going 4-0-1 last night in the Miami Heat vs Dallas Mavericks game.  White Sox are losing this game.  Sorry Chicago. Sox vs Sox series ends with a 2-1 Sox victory though.  Maybe they are getting on track.

New York Yankees +105 @ Oakland A’s -115

Not the most attractive line, but if there is a road dog on the board to take today its the Yankees.  Burnett is due for a good start and the Yankees lineup is still one of the best in baseball.  Too much for the pesky little A’s even though Gio Gonzalez has pretty nasty stuff.

Still picking winners on a daily basis.  I am on fire right now.  Burning up Costa Rica.  Sportsbooks all over the world are in trouble.

Lock of the Century: MLB picks of the Day

May 30, 2011 Leave a comment

The NHL and the NBA are almost over and if I am going to take down all of Costa Rica with my gambling picks then I am going to have to rely on a different weapon in my arsenal.  Baseball season is now upon and Chicago unfortunately will give up two locks today. 

Houston Astros +125 @ Chicago Cubs -135

Look, I know the Astros are terrible.  One of the worst teams in the league, and full disclosure…I have never heard of this guy they have pitching today.  However, I have heard of the guy the Cubs are sending out to the bump today.  Rodrigo Lopez.  The guy is awful.  They just signed him off the street.  This is a case of going with the devil you don’t know instead of the devil you know.  The Cubs also won yesterday, I don’t think they have put together back to back wins all year.  I am taking the road underdog.

Chicago White Sox +170 @ Boston Red Sox -200

The White Sox are just plain awful.  Ozzie Guillen seems more crazy than normal lately.  The Red Sox may be a little fatigued since they played a double-header yesterday, but they are throwing Jon Lester out there today.  Lester is a dominant lefty and the White Sox are going to get shut down.  The Red Sox are who we thought they were when they signed Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez in the offseason.  If the White Sox are going to win a game in this series, it could be today…but they wont and that’s why it’s a lock of the century. 

So there you have it Costa Rica.  No NBA, no NHL, no problem. 

Future First Lady of Costa Rica:
