The Hump Day Hump: British Invasion Version

Might I polish his knob, luv?
Remember this old Wednesday staple?  Let's bring it back!  I don't think that I've done one of these in a few years but GSaul always told me that these were his favorite posts so we will reward him justly.  The Royal Family is in the news this week because they showed up in the middle of the third quarter in Brooklyn the other night to watch Matthew Dellavedova and the Cavs.  Personally, I don't get the lure of the Royal Family but women who still yearn to be princesses do and Kate Middleton is pretty hot so I'll allow it.  She$ had never been more excited to watch the Cavs before so whatever.  Apparently, the Brits are U MAD BRO because Bron put his sweaty armpit on the duchess but fuck them.  You in America, bruh, and you will embrace our bro-hug culture!

So let's all sit around the old blogging circle with our bowls of Spotted Dick and discuss the topics of the week.

The Hot Stove League is on FI-YAH! - I don't know about you turds, but I love me some baseball offseason moves.  IMO it is almost better than the slog of a regular season.  By the time this posts, Jon Lester and Crazy Eyes Scherzer could have signed somewhere.  I was hoping that the Yankees would sign D-Rob and thus end games after six innings but it wasn't in the cards and he is off to the South Side.  How are your teams doing?  Does anyone understand what Billy Beane is up to?  Why do people like Tom Hamilton?  So many questions coming out of the winter GM meetings.

The Cavs are good! - Whew, remember how everyone wanted to blow the team up after a handful of games?  Well, as it turns out, this team is actually pretty good!  I'm still not sure that Dion Waiters is long for this team.  However, when he is focused and ON, no one will beat them.  The problem is that that hardly ever happens.  One thing that I will say is that Kyrie Irving looks as though he has made The Leap.  SO FAR, he looks like one of the 5-10 best players in the league.  We'll see if he can stay healthy but his body is definitely stronger this year and he has been fantastic.

Dubi is back! - We haven't talked much about the Jackets recently (there is a damn good reason for that) but with Dubi making his season debut last night in what--I assume--is a home win over Steve fucking Mason, it might be time to make a run.  Oh sure, the CBJ entered December as the worst team in the NHL but Bob is playing like the baddest motherfucker on the planet and the Metro is fucking horrendous.  I'm on Team Playoff Push way more than Team Tank.  Plus, Drew needs to pick a game to take me on our man-date since I am superior and won our bet.

Midget Manziel is starting! - Marvin Lewis called Johnny a midget for some reason.  Some people laughed with him but most laughed at him.  The important thing is that Manziel is the MAN and now I want to watch the goddamn Browns.  THIS should be an ELITE last three weeks to see if he has it.  He has sat long enough.  It is time to put out or get out.

I CAN'T BREATHE! - I love when pro athletes try to make social statements because it always comes off really selfish and they hardly ever know the entire story.  It's like some PR flunky tells them they should stand for something and then gives them an outline of the details.  Kyrie and LeBron followed bitch pussy D-Rose's lead by supporting the dead cigarette salesman and when asked about it, neither guy sounded very convincing.  It was hilarious.  Jeremy Schapp kept searching for more and these guys had nothing.  I love it.

Going From Fake To Real! - Not sure if you guys saw this but this has some serious LULZ potential.  Former WWE champion, CM Punk, quit wrestling a year or so ago in a pretty heated manner and announced this past weekend that he was going to start fighting in UFC.  This isn't a Brock Lesnar-built dude.  Punk is scrawny as fuck.  There is a big difference between doing what he did and what he is about to do.  I find this fascinating.  I hate MMA but I am interested to see how this goes.

And there we go...another glorious Hump Day Hump ends with plenty of talking points.  Just know that I am upset that the Brits didn't send King Ralph or that Mikhail Prokhorov didn't have Prince William assassinated.  I feel cheated.  Stay tuned for Ape tomorrow and THE WISEMAN TROPHY PRESENTATION on Friday, bruh.

I don't understand the allure of the Royal Family either. Agreed on Kate being hot tho.

Michigan has lost back to back home games to NJIT and Eastern Michigan....LOLZ!

Drew beat me to it... Michigan losing at home to both of those teams? Ouch. I THINK someone said they were OVERRATED in their college hoops preview...

Great comeback win for the Cavs last night. Figuring out ways to win when trailing all game is what good teams do. The big 3 are really clicking now. Sell high on Dion right now. No reason he should be taking 22 shots in a game, like he did in Brooklyn.

I will 100% admit I haven't paid any attention to what the Pistons are doing this year and saw yesterday that they were actually ranked below the sixers and dead last in the power rankings?! Ouch.

Back to college hoops and your SEC update... Kentucky is really good.

I haven't been watching the Pistons, but yeah....they BAD. It does make me chuckle thinking about all the money Greg Monroe is losing. There's a real good YouTube out there showing Josh Smiff completely bricking a game winning three over the weekend with Jim Ross commentary over it.

It appears your WE ON OVERRATED take was SPOT ON.

Man, the UM season is off to a roaring start. I can't wait to see how much they lose to Arizona next game.

Big East action is still all Villanova all the time. Undefeated and looking damn good. Though, that close game against Michigan is looking very suspect.

I have zero opinions on anything you posted except for the CBJ have now won 4 in a row. I'm trying not to get optimistic, but if our players start slowly coming back and we start dominating, we could push for a nice almost patented end of the season push.

I love anything that has Jim Ross dubbed into it. You should ready Andy Isaac's diary of attending said Pistons/Thunder game by himself over at With Leather. It is hilarious.

According to seemingly everyone on Twitter, EMU played the greatest zone defense in the history of the world last night. That's great. They won't finish in the top 3 in the MAC.

Seal, I agree. Blowing teams out all the time is nice but won't help you in May. Figuring out how to beat good teams like the Raptors with your B- game is YUGE. Really lookin forward to the Durant/Unibrow back to back on Thursday and Friday. The first Pelicans game was incredible.

Ide, we're getting close. THe FOURF line still has 100% too much Jared Boll who has somehow played every game this season, but in a few weeks that will change.

Jon Lester, bitches!!!!!!! I'm excited about baseball again! It's been a few years.

Agree on athletes taking a social stand then not totally knowing what they are actually saying. LeBron's "it don't get no bigger than honoring the victim's family" was pretty hollow.

Hey! I got a new job yesterday! Resigned yesterday (put in the normal two weeks) which was weird but moving on up! Gotta find Running Zack a new daycare though...

GMoney said...

I remember when I said that the Cubs should sign Lester. Boy do I 'memba that. It's a lot of money but you have it so who cares.

GMoney said...

So you took the free trip to Austin, TX and quit a week later? That's sort of a baller move.

Prime99 said...

Yep. I didn't have the official offer until yesterday, and they want me to start before the end of the year. Forced my hand on how fast I need to resign but everyone was nice and supportive.

GMoney said...

Probably because you performed a bitchin' version of "Sexy Boy" at the Christmas Party while your CEO did the female portion IMO.

And if that did not happen, Total Recall should totes start playing that.

GMoney said...

Sons of Anarchy is finally over. Thoughts? I am so happy to be done with that horribly written piece of shit.

G$....remember when you predicted the Red Wings playoff streak would come to an end this year? Just tied for most points in the East....NBD.

While we are on random topics... how fucking stupid is the NBA schedule? Teams play so many back to backs, then have like 4-5 days off in a row? I don't get it at all.

Cutcliff turned down the U Meh job?

Good for the Cubs.

Cautiously optimistic on the CBJ. Rest of the month will be interesting. All big boy teams

Jeff said...

Now that I think about it, Gsaul must be part of the search firm so Cutcliff would be the top target.

GMoney said...

Still 60 more games, Drool. To quote your bottom bitch, R-E-L-A-X.

Seal, got to have ample days off in order to make a stand against social injustice IMO.

Police report filed for domestic disturbance at JT Barrett's apartment.

Barrett's girlfriend accused him of choking her on his bed.

Jeff said...

Suspend JT for the playoffs

Woah there, TMZ. There were no charges filed and no signs of abuse.

Domestic violence is the number one trait of URBAN MEYER GUY.

Sexy Boy would be a great add to the TR catalog.

#FireMeyer...typical thugs

T. Iceman said...

That's very irresponsible journalism, Jeff. Duke is denying Michigan contacted Cutliff or offered him anything. Pretty careless commenting considering the COTY award is still up for grabs...

Michigan's bball team is gonna lose some games like that this year. They have no post game whatsoever and rely strictly on 3 point shooting. You should never lose to those 2 teams at home but shooting 4-21 from 3 isn't helping either. Michigan looks lucky to be a tourney team at this point. They're just too young and inexperienced.

Let's not forget that hockey reject that thought Nelson Mandela was a hockey player. That video was so great.

Barrett likes to beat women. LOL.

GMoney said...

So is Barrett fucking/trying to kill his sister or cousin or some sort of relation? It would make sense.

T. Iceman said...

Barrett always came off as an incest guy.

Choking a pregnant woman. Urban kind of thing to do.

GMoney said...

Oh, she was pregnant? Baby Joffrey Barrett also born from incest!
