A Great Day for the White Sox!!

Posted by Wickedpinto on June 14, 2007

The starting line up did fantastic, no runs or hits scored, and the Bullpen, which has been disappointing followed through just as everyone has been hoping for the last several weeks and months of failure.

 They kept their opponent from scoring a single run, and their offense did just as was expected.

 Drawback?  The White Sox didn’t play today, and even though there wasn’t a game, this was probably the best game I’ve seen/not seen in more than a week.

It’s an average day for a chicago team right now (except for the fact that the cubs are on a 3 game winning streak!, and the Sox are sucking crap)

The point is?  THANK YOU White Sox for having today off, it’s the only day this week that I haven’t experienced dissappointment thanks to your failures.

One Hitter

Posted by Wickedpinto on June 7, 2007

That has absolutely GOT to suck!  Bottom of the ninth, 2 outs, and it’s a shot between second and first, losing the no hitter.  I blame ESPN for mentioning it so much, and pre-empting PTI.

YOU DON’T TALK ABOUT THE STREAK!

YOU DON’T MENTION THE NO HITTER!

Blasphemers! 

Update: His june 2nd post, shows why I think this guy rocks.

Let’s see, I sucked, we still won. That about cover it?

That takes some nuts, specially for a first round hall of famer.

But it doesn’t end there.

Seriously, I did suck

Now he is probably the only guarantee’d first balloter on his team right now, but he says that?  Thats a Man who knows.  But it’s not over.

He’s swinging the bat as well as I have ever seen him.

He’s talking about Posada, the opponent, he isn’t saying HE screwed up, he’s praising his opponent, THATS nobility.

OH! WAIT!!!!  IT continues.

I was fortunate enough to start the fifth with a clean slate whereas Mike had to com e back out to 2nd and third no outs. We get two out of it and are now up 3-1.

I will leave it there, read his blog.

I bet tomorrows posting will be the best yet.

A good man, even though I hate the whole “SAWKS” “YANKEETHS” thing, I chi, but Curt is a good man, and is honest.

Indy 500

Posted by Wickedpinto on May 27, 2007

Apparently Ashley Judd’s husband Franchetti, whoever that is, won the Indianapolis 500 after 166 laps, the race was called because of rain.

My question, The Indy 500 is called the “Indy 500″ because it is a 500 mile race over 200 laps on a 2.5 mile track.

So. . . . do the spectators get re-imbursed for the 85 miles they didn’t get to view? Or are they gonna call this years race, the Indianapolise 415?  I’m just curious.

I hate the “sport” of any driving race, though I appreciate the skill, I think it’s boring, I can wind up my vibrating football game and play out every season but I don’t, cuz I like football.   Just saying.

To restate the outcome, some guy who gets to sleep with Ashley Judd (who was very cute in a sodden summer dress) wins the Indianapolis 415.

Edit: I screwed up, (go figure) 34 laps is 85 miles, not 90, and the Indy 500 didn’t become the Indianapolis 410, but rather the Indianapolis 415.

Duke lacrosse wins ACC championship

Posted by mesablue on April 30, 2007

The Duke lacrosse team returned in style.


Duke downs UVA for ACC lax crown

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Matt Danowski and his fellow seniors had helped Duke win 40 games in their careers and reach the NCAA championship game in 2005.
This year, they can add another impressive — and more significant — accomplishment to their resumes.


Danowski and Zack Greer each scored three goals Sunday and the Duke lacrosse program continued its triumphant return by beating Virginia 12-9 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship.


Danowski was the tournament’s most valuable player for the top-seeded Blue Devils (13-2), who won their fourth title and first since 2002.


It’s the latest on-field highlight for the Blue Devils in the road back from a rape scandal that led to charges against three former teammates — who were ultimately exonerated — and the cancellation of much of last season. Duke has won eight straight games heading into next weekend’s regular-season finale against Air Force, followed by a trip to the NCAA tournament in hopes of winning the title that eluded the Blue Devils in ’05.


“For us as seniors, we talked about leaving a legacy here,” said Danowski, honored as the ACC player of the year earlier this week. “It’s another testament to the character of the guys on this team and the way we’ve stuck (together) throughout this whole thing, kept our noses clean and just kept going and stayed with it.


“Today’s one of those payoffs. But you can’t fall back on that. It’s not the end-all, be-all for us.”

Good for them.

WOW!

Posted by Wickedpinto on April 27, 2007

I actually check this blog everyday (I’m a baseball fan) and sometimes I read it, he’s a bit verbose(imagine Ace writing an advance review of “Dragonslayer” after a special D&D blogger only preview of the movie sort of verbose) but it took ALLAH (CURSED ALLAH ALWAYS WINS!) to point it out to me today.

 Anyways, Curt Schilling is a ballsy, honest and decent man.

I won’t belittle the night or the event because on a personal and a team level it was an incredible experience. I never took sole credit nor deserved it for us winning that game, or the series. Without Marks home run or Bronson and Keith doing what they did out of the pen we don’t win that game. Without Derek dealing in game seven, Johnny going deep twice, David’s home run and a host of other people we don’t win the series. What came out of that series from a public perception standpoint was not how we all felt. Was I proud of what I did? Absolutely, but I also never thought for a second that was the sole reason we won.

He praised his team above himself, he acknoweledged many of the accomplishments of his fellow players, and he is one of the great pitchers of all time, no selfishness no ego, only a desire to set the record straight.

Curt Schilling is a good man, I’m impressed, If I didn’t think the AL East was stacked against pretty much everyone because of the silly conflict between the Red Sox and the Yankee’s I might actually be a fan of the Red Sox just cuz this post was impressive.  Not as a pitcher, but as a person.

Hugo, you sly boy

Posted by mesablue on April 27, 2007

He’s been holding out on us.

There may yet be hope for Venezuela.


Milka (heh) Duno passed her IRL driving test today. She has five masters degrees and is 35 years old, which puts her right on the edge of my ‘will not date anyone under 35′ window. She has had success at the 24 hours of Daytona (2nd) and has won a couple of Grand Am races. She’s pretty late to the racing game, which makes it all that much sexier.

I’m more than willing to volunteer my efforts in USA/Venezuelan relations.

IRL’s Duno ups degree of difficulty for everyone

Update: Check out her web site for more Milka goodness.

Soccer vs. Rugby

Posted by mesablue on April 21, 2007

Watch it all the way through to get past the cry babies to the real men.

Detroit Rugby Footbal Club

We had the boys from Hamilton, Ontario in today. They won, but the best line of the day– after I hit a guy, he told his buddies, “that guy rocked me, it was awesome”, to which they said “Detroit Rock City!”

Game Day! This is for all the marbles, baby!

Posted by mesablue on January 14, 2007

Win or go home… Chicago Bears, home field advantage all the way. This is what we live for.

Go Bears!

The last time we faced Seattle it was a romp. If “good” Rex shows up we should be able to do it again. We are a little banged up on D, but it’s no excuses time. Bear Down!

Put on your Bears gear Wickedpinto — Mooooooooooooose!!!

Check out a great Chicago Bears site: Bears History.com

Gametime!

First drive for a TD! Bears up 7-0 and Bad Rex hasn’t shown up yet. It could be a good day.

Ugh, an ugly drive by Seattle, 7-7. C’mon Bears, that was sloppy.

Wow, first play 70 yard strike for a TD! 14-7 Bears.

Bad Rex just put in an appearance. He fumbled on the ten to help Seattle get an easy score. 14-14.

There you go, nice efficient drive to end the half. They went for it on fourth down and got the TD to take back the seven points we just gave away. 21-14 Bears.

Not good, two scores by Seattle in the third. 24-21 Seattle.

Ugly, Mohammed lets one through his hands for an interception inside the ten yard line. The Bears just squandered a huge scoring opportunity.

Woah, the Bears intercept on the next play! Now we have to get seven.

Nothing.

Hester runs a punt back for a touchdown…penalty. Nothing.

Long drive by Bears results in a field goal to tie the game. 24-24. 4:24 left.

Bears stop Seattle and then give the ball right back at the end of the game.

Overtime.

Wow. Robbie Gould kicks a 49 yard field goal to win the game.

The Bears do just enough to overcome Rex’s mistakes.

edit: M-i-c-h-i-g-a-n! loses huge in the big game…again

Posted by mesablue on January 2, 2007

Hail to the Victors!

Staying in tonight and celebrating the New Year at home to be fresh for the Rose Bowl.

Go Blue!

Update: Well, that sucked. When did Cooper start coaching for the Wolverines?

Everything we did right all season, all the talent — didn’t get a chance to put their hands on the ball tonight until it was too late.

You can’t score if you don’t try. USC is a great team, but they beat us on the same plays that were available for us. And that we used all season.

Frustrating.

I’ve been a huge Carr supporter since day one. But, Lloyd got schooled today like a kindergartner who still needs to raise his hand to use the bathroom — but then it’s too late. It was hard to watch.

We need a new coach.

I never thought I would say that, but the better team did not win tonight. An average quarterback had the advantage of a defense that was on it’s heels all night because their coaches let them down. USC has two amazing receivers, they worked hard and did their jobs.

Michigan decided to not go down field — at all.

Everything that worked all year — don’t even try. Send Hart up the middle. Sure, get cute and use the tight ends once in a while. But, after five sacks in the first half — give their fucking linebackers and corners something to think about before they take a straight line at your quarterback — every damn play.

Michigan is too big a program to go through this. And we are not as stupid as Notre Dame to hire a left over high school coach — twice. Hopefully.

USC taught us a lesson tonight.

I hope we learned it.

Bears Win! Barely….

Posted by mesablue on December 17, 2006

Whew, the Bears turned a run away game into a nail biter. It took overtime and a second Gould field goal attempt to finally win it.

Final score: Bears 34 Tampa Bay 31. With the win they’ve wrapped up home field advantage through the playoffs. Which means that when they travel here to Detroit next week to play the Lions, they’ll probably rest half of the team. So glad I popped for those tickets on eBay. Lions fans will probably be giving them away by the thousands after their performance against Green Bay today.

It should be fun at any rate, I don’t get the chance to break out my Bears Santa hat very often.
