*It's BAAAAAAAACK - Everything about Ohio State football is hot garbage from the fans to the players to the administration to the stadium to renaming Lane Ave. "Champions Lane" for one year. But Hineygate is sort of cool. Sure, the beer is warm and pricey, it's packed, and The Danger Brothers are fucking terrible, yet it's usually pretty fun due to the mass influx of Naptowners. Well after a two year hiatus from getting booted off the old Holiday Inn lot (on Champions Lane), The Gate is back! And just a few doors down to boot! Yep, it has moved to The Varsity Club parking lot (I believe for this coming year, too). Good news there. Henry County drunks are breathing a sigh of relief.
*A-Rod getting in trouble for being a rich guy - Drew sometimes likes to forward me links as if I have no access to this stuff and he is breaking news to me. Usually, it's about potentially bad things happening to my teams. He did this again yesterday. I guess MLB isn't happy with Baseball Jesus because he likes to play in high stakes poker games with other famous people. I have no idea what the problem here is. It's his money. He isn't betting on baseball. Orel Hershiser (still working in the game) made the finals of the Heads Up Championship a few years ago so poker isn't that frowned upon. Oh wait, it might have something to do with the perceived violence and tough guys around these games. Well, maybe he should stay away from Teddy KGB's place then. But I don't see how you can suspend a guy for playing cards. That's madness. In my personal opinion, this actually makes A-Rod sort of cool. Living the Rounders lifestyle is badass. If they try to force some sort of punishment because of this, I would expect Lionel Hutz and about a million other lawyers to be all over this. Remember those bi-weekly poker games that Dut hosted? Yeah, those went on for about 6 weeks and stopped two years ago. I tell ya, this guy is the worst.
*Tony LaRussa is pretty much an asshole. Just admit that you're a dickhead and that you were trying to get revenge for nothing. And don't be trying to hurt my boy, Ryan Braun. Nice tirade though. Even better that that reporter PWNED his ass.
*Dream Team, huh? - DT Mike Patterson is trying to die on the field yet the Eagles are a "Dream Team". Bitch please. He couldn't even die on the field right. Take notes from Korey Stringer. He only needed one shot to get it right.
*Marc Bulger retired. It probably helped that no one wanted him and his brain is a tub of spoiled cottage cheese. If Bulger can retire from the NFL, then I suppose that I should just retire from the NBA.
*Bruce Pearl can get a job in the NBDL if he wants. That's nice. Maybe this sort of thing will open the way for Jim Tressel and Mo Clarett to be reunited by the Omaha Nighthawks. Mo-Clare called into The Fan the other day and I give him props, he isn't nearly as stupid as he used to be/Terrelle Pryor. My favorite part was when he said that he had no regrets. That killed me.
*Did we mention Butch Davis getting shitcanned? I don't think that we did. Jesus, and here I thought that OSU was the definition of "public relations nightmare". They waited until 6 weeks before the season to fire their coach? That's tard shit. Were the allegations that have been circling the program for a YEAR all of a sudden a surprise? Yeah, it might not happen this year or next, but the football Heels are about to become Duke-bad.
*Northwestern is apparently promoting the shit out of QB Dan Persa for the Heisman. This is really funny to me. Not as funny as seeing "Charlie Frye For Heisman" crap back in the mid-2000's while I was living in NE Ohio, but funny nonetheless. In case you were wondering, Persa was one of three QB's to make an All-Big Ten team over TP last year.
*Finally, the worst fantasy league on the planet (DFL) run by an even worse human being (Dut) has finally settled on a draft date. It will be on Saturday Aug 13th. Nothing beats drafting your team before some real teams have even played a preseason game yet. YOU ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT. THE COMMENT SECTION IS RIGHT, "FUCK YOU, DUT"!!! And fuck New York City for approving you and Carl Edwards' marriage. Weak sauce. Just to recap for all the DFLers that read this site, we all got hosed so that Dut can get his fartbox tongue-punched by a race car driver. I hope that his entire team blows out their brains during week 2 of the preseason.
Fuck you, Dut, indeed. More fantasy tomorrow. Maybe more of Kate Upton's outstanding 19 year old rack, too.
