|Might I polish his knob, luv?|
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.
