Wait I won something for my second place finish in Fantasy Football?!?! Where do I claim this valuable item? I feel like the USA Hockey team!

I have been away from a real computer in over two weeks and my iphone looks like Spanky's windshield after a night when Broxton blows a save.

Spring training just around the corner kids!

Seahahks kicking some Saint bootay.

Dusty Baker said...

WTF is going on in this game? World is not right. Hold on a sec...let me change avatars to try to change the mojo and help out Marla SportsCzar.

Dusty Baker said...

Okay, Marla. I'm with you. Shot this photo in NO just a few days ago.

Dusty Baker said...

ps- can someone remind me how to make blogger profile pics larger than brett favre's penis-sized?

rbnlaw said...

Hiyoooooo!

rbnlaw said...

I blame myself. I took the Saints and gave up the points.

Rule of Thumb: Take the home team and the points.


#D'OH!

rbnlaw said...

I really wish my wife wasn't addicted to Lifetime movies.

Oy.

Steve Sax said...

How is this game even close?

How is Seattle winning?

Dusty Baker said...

24-20 Seattle. Just starting 3rd qtr.

rbnlaw said...

One dead man walks: Hodgson out at Ko; Mr. C unavailable for comment.

Dusty Baker said...

31-20 Seattle, and with the momentum.

rbnlaw said...

Seattle at home: decent.
Seattle on the road: patsy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm fairly certain my hand is broken right now.

rbnlaw said...

Gotta be running out of wall space at this point.

That, or running out of Spackle.

Fred's Brim said...

who is the clown doing color with Tom Hammonds? It sounds like Dan Marino at times, so maybe somebody from Pittsburgh?

Fred's Brim said...

Pete Carrol is a joke

Fred's Brim said...

that was pathetic

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck it. If they can't convert on that they don't deserve to win.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck that was close. No flag too.

Fred's Brim said...

time for an avatar change

Fred's Brim said...

that stadium looks treacherously steep in the upper deck

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Julius Jones needs to be cut. Like, right now. Just kick him off the team right this second. He sucks ass.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thank you, duplicitous bastard.

Fred's Brim said...

Bushrod

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least they're getting those jackass fans to shut the fuck up.

I shouldn't say that. My cousin's a Seahawks fan.

But still, I enjoy their silence.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I's takes what I's can gets.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's my half-assed way of saying "I'll take it" like someone from NOLA.

I'll just shut up now.

rbnlaw said...

FB: You got what I need. . .

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woo! TD! Back up in dis bish!

rbnlaw said...

Jones: 2 TD's; 2 fumbles.
Net Zero.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice 3-&-out.

rbnlaw said...

Sounds like my beer consumption to this point.

Fred's Brim said...

Hasselbeck looks more and more evil every day

Fred's Brim said...

Marshawn Lynch fumble coming up

Fred's Brim said...

The Bills have to be glad they got rid of Original Beast Mode

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woo! Sack!

Dusty Baker said...

Shawks defense coming up big in thislast sequence.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shit.

Fred's Brim said...

This Mike Mayock is a terrible colorman.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

fuck me...

Fred's Brim said...

holy shit

BEAST MODE!

Spank said...

Damn!

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow, Pete Carroll's gonna win.

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck - why could he never do that in Buffalo?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least Colin Cowherd just got fucked in the ass on that run.

Fred's Brim said...

Juan Pierre, you were a beast mode thief

rbnlaw said...

Marshawn Lynch is good at the football.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I am le sad.

Fred's Brim said...

Mayock, stop cheering

Fred's Brim said...

sorry, Marla :(

Fred's Brim said...

onside kickaroo!

Fred's Brim said...

why do you run? you know you can't run

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

wtf?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

QUIT DANCING IN MY TEARS, YOU JAGOFF BROADCASTER

Fred's Brim said...

we know, May-cock, you love the Seabags and fellow BC alum Hasselbeck. Just try to be a little professional

Fred's Brim said...

peaking? they lost three straight games giving up tons of points, and barely beat the Shams at home to sneak into the playoffs. How could you construe that as peaking?

Fred's Brim said...

NBC and their Notre Dame crew are pathetic

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Not a good six months in sports.

rbnlaw said...

Well, that was unexpected.

Fred's Brim said...

Is that Dr Potterywood in that Toyota commercial?

#ObscureCommunityCharacters

rbnlaw said...

For the record: I have no dog in this hunt, but I hate Pete Carroll.


FTR: GO COLTS!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@FB - Was he stretching Jeff's jacket?

Spank said...

Nice fucking game

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

They were peaking from the time of Monday's practice drills up until and through today's game.

Dusty Baker said...

I loooooathe Dan Patrick.

rbnlaw said...

I loathe his hair.



I love lamp.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Do you really love the lamp, or are you just saying it because you saw it?

Spank said...

Santonio Holmes is an idiot.

rbnlaw said...

I pooped a Cornish game hen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm riding a furry tractor.

Dusty Baker said...

Noted, RBN.

Dusty Baker said...

This is a shitass game so far. I'd rather be watching the Bel Biv Devoe Bowl!

Spank said...

This game is going to drive me to sobriety.

Spank said...

The movie "Twister" is fucking ridiculous. Yet,I still watch.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank re: sobriety

Easy, man! Don't get carried away. There's always a solution in alcohol.

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of booze, here's a link to some pics from my sojourn to the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans this week:

Is anyone else around still? Hello? I'm scared out here all alone.

Dusty Baker said...

(breaks out Bel Biv Devoe tape)

Dusty Baker said...

(creates a diversion in search of attention)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I still has a sad.

Dusty Baker said...

Hang in there, Marla. Believe me, I've been there - and recently.

Spank said...

Colts are going to choke.

Spank said...

Down to a FG

Spank said...

JETS WIN!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

And the Jets win it.

Spank said...

Why do I care? I don't give a shit about any of these teams!

Dusty Baker said...

I am completely ambivalent!

Dusty Baker said...

I know we've gone over this before, but why in holy hell does a team (Colts) allow 10,15,20 yard passes right down the field when they can lose by a FG? What is the reasoning?

rbnlaw said...

@DB: The "prevent defense." It prevents you from winning.

Fuck a bunch of the Jets.

Dusty Baker said...

One just rarely sees the prevent defense prevail in this situation. Instead of playing the same game that had kept the Jets to just a couple of scores the whole game, and perhaps rushing essentially a rookie QB, they let the Jets march downfield, perhaps hoping that the kicker would miss a 23 yard chip shot. How do you let your season rest on this illogic?

rbnlaw said...

It's why I detest the NFL. Although it made me $160 in my pick-em pool this year.

Epic pics of NOLA, BTW. Love that Dixie beer.

Spank said...

Prevent defense sux!

Josh S. said...

Bummed I missed a couple of corkers today. (And bummed the Saints lost, but fascinated that last year's SB teams got booted on the same day.)

I have time to watch the Packers tomorrow, which assures it will be boring and they will lose.
