Trash Talk – All You Kneed To Know About Tom

In all the hubbub over the election, debates, McCain inciting racial strife and, of course, our economy continuing to fall off the face of the earth, the usually astute American public consciousness has lost track of a critically important story they usually would be all over. Tom Brady has undergone yet another knee operation. That is not good. Not to mention that Giselle must be getting cranky from the loss of consortium in their love shack. Peyton Manning demonstrated that knee surgeries now come in pairs though, so maybe it is nothing to worry about. You folks up there in Beantown better not let Randy Moss here about this though, because he was just starting to come out of his funk with Cassell.

National Favre League – Jeebus, it really is not a great week for captivating matchups. Check out the schedule, fairly bleak. Brett and the Jets visit Freep country up in Oakland. Maybe Al Davis will suit up, he may still be the toughest goat on the Raiders. Bolts at Bills, Saints at Panthers and Vikes at Da Bears are the only even halfway interesting regular schedule games. The real class, such that it is this week, are the Sunday night and Monday night games, Colts at Cheeseheads and Doncos at Pats, respectively.

Bowl Division, Smole Division (NCAA) – Okay, I want to come clean; I think the BCS is a bunch of shit. There; now I feel better. Big game of interest to Wheelheads seems to be the Wolvereenies at Joe Pa. Already the carping. Already the rationalizing from the Schembechler Whinery Region.

Kansas at Oklahoma appears to be a good game to watch. By far, the most interesting game would look to be Missouri at Texas. Chase Daniel is a pretty special kid, but so apparently is Colt McCoy. The battle between those two will probably be continuing on Sundays for many years into the future. For this year though, Texas looks to have too much for Missouri, and that and home field should carry the day. The other interesting game is LSU at South Carolina. Spurrier has a knack for these situations; Gamecocks in an upset.

MLB – The Sawx are dead. Long live the Sawx! I said when the season started that the Red Sawx may not be all that without their big prick, Curt Shilling. I am sticking with that prediction. Much to the chagrin of Ishmael, Bay State Librul, Neil, Phred and many other fine folks up Beantown way, I just don’t think they can pull it out this year. Say what you will about the Shill, but he has "it" when it comes to that last ounce of playoff toughness. It is not just with the Sawx either, the Diamondbacks couldn’t do it without the jerk either. MLB is going to commit hari kari, but the series is going to be Tampa Bay and Philly. Hari kari may be justified.

F1 Circus – This weekend is the penultimate race of the season, the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. From FoxSports:

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton put himself in prime position to claim the Formula One title this weekend by taking the pole position Saturday for the Chinese Grand Prix.

Hamilton set a top time of 1 minute, 36.303 seconds, and will start Sunday’s race ahead of Ferrari pair Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa, who were second- and third-fastest.

Hamilton leads Massa by five points in the drivers’ championship with two races left in the season. To clinch the title here, he would need to finish on the podium and gain six more points than the Brazilian.

The front row for China is the same as the previous race in Japan, where Hamilton braked too late, forced Raikkonen off at the first corner and consequently received a pit drive-through penalty and finished outside the points.

Renault’s Fernando Alonso, who has won the past two grands prix and had vowed to try his best to help Massa win the title, will start from fourth on the grid.

BMW’s Robert Kubica, who still has slim hopes of snatching the title, put in his worst qualifying performance of the season and finished in the 12th spot, complaining of understeer.

Hamilton enters the Chinese GP five points ahead of Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and twelve up on Kubica. But with both Ferraris right next to and behind him on the grid, Hamilton is going to have to earn his first title; and it was not until the last race of the season last year that Hamilton lost grip, so it is not over till it is over. It ain’t over. Again, the race is tonight, not Sunday morning, on Speed TV.

Trash it up!

    ** Giselle can figure out some “innovative” positions that don’t involve pressure on that hurt knee.

  4. randiego says:

    There’s a few decent games tomorrow.

    Bolts at Buffalo is certainly a big game for both teams, and remember that The Chargers don’t travel well to the east coast. Right now the game is listed as even, so take the points.

    Baltimore at Miami is a good one – we’ll see how for real the Fish are.

    Peyton at the Ex-Bretts is good one too. Indy -2.

    New Orleans at Carolina. Another division game, always smart to take the home team in these. Drew Brees is the early clubhouse leader for MVP.

    The Bretts against the Raiduh’s. Raiduhs play pretty tough D, Brett among the top passers in the AFC.

  5. randiego says:

    I’ll be a big Pats fan on Monday night. 3 TDs and a passer rating of 110.0 for Cassel would be fine by me.

  6. masaccio says:

    Don’t bother to mention the only 5-0 team playing tomorrow: the Tennessee Titans of Nashville.

    And speaking of trash talk, get a load of this headline from the trash network, CNN: “McCain, Palin hint Obama policies are socialist.”

    And from the candidate his own self: “Raising taxes on some in order to give checks to others is not a tax cut; it’s just another government giveaway.”

    It doesn’t get much better than that.

    • bmaz says:

      That was a favor to you. The last time I talked about an undefeated team going into KC, they got their butt handed to them in the Chiefs’ only victory of the season. didn’t want the Titans to suffer the same fate as the Broncos.

      Especially after Vandy falling again….

    Vanderbilt still gets lousy calls in big games. And we could use some help on run defense. The Dawgs were making huge yards on the off-tackle play, specially in the second half.

      Too bad…I was looking forward to seeing Michigan play against Buffalo in the Motor City Bowl…. might not happen seeing as Michigan doesn’t look like they will be bowl eligible.

        • CTMET says:

          Hey I spend every New Years Day rooting for Mrs. CTMETs team the Wolverines. If they’re going to have a lousy year it might as well coincide with the good year the Bulls are having.

          Some useless information UB has only been invited to a bowl once in 1958.

          After finishing the season as the Lambert Cup champions, Buffalo was invited to play in the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, FL. However, after accepting the invitation, University Chancellor Clifford Furnas, along with the entire team, made the decision to not play in the game; they learned that their two black players, Willie Evans and Mike Wilson, would not be allowed to play as per the request of the hosting school district.

          UB also is the only D1 program with a Black Head football coach (Turner Gill of Nebraska fame), and Warde Manuel – (who played for Bo).

          How bout some love for a progressive program???

          • bmaz says:

            Hey, awesome story; had not heard that before. That is cool. I have heard that Turner Gill has a lot of promise as a head coach, hope you guys can hold on to him.

            Gots to say though, if you have to root for Michigan on New Year’s Day in bowl games, you got a lot of fortitude. Their record, especially in the Rose Bowl, is not real good. You must love your wife….

    • Ishmael says:

      Just for the record, I am trying to watch the Red Sox-Rays game up here in Canada, but the sports network carrying it tells us that TBS has shut down completely and is not broadcasting the game – in the meantime, waiting for the game coverage to resume, they are showing the Miss Hooters 2008 contest. I will keep everyone posted…..

  8. lesserdevil says:

    Being an LSU alumni (alumni is spelled f-a-n-a-t-i-c), I am afraid you might be right. If not the Spurrier’s Gamecocks, then there will be some other upset. The Tigers have been riding high for too long. I’ve been amazed at Les Miles success so far. It can’t last forever.

    That’s why I have to ride in the back of the bus to LSU home games. Nobody wants to hear my pessimism.

  9. kspena says:

    OT- this is for last thread, but nobody’s there. I saw ‘W’ this afternoon; Powell comes off very strong… It passed through my brain that powell’s appearance on MTP tomorrow and the release of the Stone film might be coordinated…The film gives Powell good cover for whatever he might say; he’s not alone anymore…

  10. randiego says:

    wow, Texas over Missouri 21-0. Gotta disagree bout Chase Daniel playing on Sundays. No arm downfield.

  11. randiego says:

    You guys? Hey mister, I wanted to keep Drew Brees. I loved the guy, and I don’t think arm strength was ever a problem with him…

    Can you imagine? Brees, with Rivers coming off the bench!

    Oops, 28-0 now.

    • rosalind says:

      the home plate ump got beaned by the ball and had to leave the game. guess this triggers decisions about how to move the other umps around. took quite a while to get up and running again.

      feel free to chime in on the lesser issues we discuss here too (like when a repuglitard mouth breathing congresscritter inserts a size 16 eeeee clodhopper into her mouth, or the vice presnit decides to burn a NOC agent in a personal vendetta)

  15. Muzzy says:

    you know, I attended the Longhorns’ first ever Rose Bowl appearance -against Michigan. Wolverines had quite a triad in the RB, QB, and WR that year.

    SC should win out and definitely has a chance for the Championship game. SEC and Big XII will beat each other up.

  16. JThomason says:

    New Mexico scored 70, UCLA won, Northern Illinois won (beating Toledo), UAB won, the Vols hammered the mighty Bulldogs. What else is relevant? So we live in a post-reactionary, neo-feudal state where our owner elites owe no moral accountability. We do have some tremendous stadiums.

  17. JThomason says:

    I take it you mean this Romulus:

    The historical record contains few details of Romulus’ life. He was installed as emperor by his father Orestes, the Magister militum (master of soldiers) of the Roman army. Orestes had deposed the previous emperor Julius Nepos. Romulus, little more than a child, acted as a figurehead for his father’s rule. Reigning only ten months, Romulus was then deposed by the Germanic chieftain Odoacer and sent to live in the Castellum Lucullanum in Campania; afterwards he disappears from the historical record.

    Have you stumbled upon the lost transcript holding the heuristic key to the secret rhetorical foibles of Odoacer’s political trick bag (much like the quatrains of Nostradamus but having the great prophetic “robocall” code). I had thought Rick Davis had the only copy. This makes thing much more interesting. San Diego State let the Lobos have 70…70…I mean really. Rocky Long may be a descendant of Odoacer.

  18. JThomason says:

    Nostrodamus on the Red Sox v. Rays:

    “The battle moves to the east, to determine the beast. It might go as far as France, but again you’re effing wrong. It starts in the southeast and perseverance serves the goal. In the end, a devil remains the mole.”

    Nostradamus refers to the world’s stupid fascination with Evan Longoria’s name being similar to Eva Longoria. Devil Rays, or not, they come out victoriously in this series, perhaps after a Troy Percival save??? Rays in six.

    1555 was a long time ago. Its understandable that he would miss this one.

    I was channeling freepatriot watching three things at once; SoxTB, AZvCAL, SNL.

    Marky Mark stole the show doing an imitation of himself doing an imitation of Samberg doing an imitation of himself. Wiig was good as usual. Pohler’s always on. They did a good bit with Fey, Palin and Alec Baldwin to open the show. But the best SNL thing I saw all week was Sarah Silverman on Lettermen telling the story of when she stabbed Al Franken in the head with her pencil.

  21. WilliamOckham says:

    I left a comment on the newspaper endorsement thread. My hometown paper, the Houston Chronice, endorsed Barack Obama today. The last Democratic nominee for president they endorsed was LBJ in 1964. It was obviously the Palin pick that they couldn’t stomach:

    Perhaps the worst mistake McCain made in his campaign for the White House was the choice of the inexperienced and inflammatory Palin as his vice-presidential running mate. Had he selected a moderate, experienced Republican lawmaker such as Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison with a strong appeal to independents, the Chronicle’s choice for an endorsement would have been far more difficult.

    The part that amazes me is that they got past this:

    One weakness Obama has shown is a tendency to demonize the energy industry, which will be an indispensable ally in developing alternative fuel sources in the future.

    [By “demonize” they mean “describe honestly”]

  23. Minnesotachuck says:

    Good Op Ed this morning by Frank Rich at the Gray Lady about McCain having painted himself into the political corner with George W. Bush, and thus having torn up his Maverick credentials in deed, if not in word. What Rich misses, however, and what almost all commentary on the campaign is missing, is that this is just as revealing about the state of the twenty-first century Republican Party as it is about McCain’s personal character. He would never have obtained his party’s nomination if he hadn’t embraced most of Bush’s policies and political practices, even though a large majority of the American people have begun to realize how disastrous those policies and practices have been. Today’s GOP is a party that has been taken over by elements whose agenda is having the effect of destroying the American Expirment, and they have taken their party swirling so far down that bowl that if American democracy recovers, their party will probably never again be regarded as a respectable democratic (small “d”) political entity. The election of 2008, more so than any since at least 1860 and perhaps ever, is utterly crucial to the future of American democracy.

    THOMAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Police say a Michigan man has been arrested after “receiving sexual favors from a vacuum” at a car wash.

    The Saginaw News reports the 29-year-old Swan Creek Township man was arrested Thursday in Saginaw County’s Thomas Township, about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.

    Police Sgt. Gary Breidinger says a resident called to report suspicious activity at the car wash about 6:45 a.m. An officer approached on foot and caught the man in the act.

    The suspect, whose name wasn’t immediately released, is being held in the Saginaw County Jail.

    jees ew, you would think that the red wings or pistons would take up some depression matter while mr brady rehabs and the ole maize and blue try and battle that urge to turn into west virgina in michigan…. sorta like the maize and blue basketball team…. do you think there might be a conspiracy theory there? all we need is the west virgina hockey coach.

    ahhh all this gloating, yet I remain a long sufferin lions fan. fearing of course, they will f**k up draft day (our version of the super bowl) and leave us in a perpetual state of limbo gives me pause for any confidence that the roy williams dump made any sense….

    My condolences for the Red Sawx fans. I joke around, but I was rooting for the Sawx.

    That said, my hat is off to Tampa Bay and their fans. Enjoy to the fullest what you have going on there, it is special. Get thee to one of the Series games, no matter what the cost. It is worth it, you will keep that forever, and it is not the same watching it on TV. I know. Seven years ago it was me. The importance of this to the community, the oneness and togetherness, the pride, the emotion – it is all incredibly special. I cannot tell you what it felt like when it happened with the Diamondbacks the first time in 2001. It is just a wonderful thing. Soak it all in Tampa; hoop it up!

      can we go halvsies on those condolences ???

      I just can’t bring myself to have sympathy for boston

      I save my sympathy for teams I really hate

      in my world, sympathy is the ulrimate form of disrespect for a sports franchise

      look at those poor little red sox, boo hoo
