Thank you, thank you.. please sit down...you're a great crowd. I would first like to thank Mid Relief for allowing me to post on this blog. Who knows where this could lead, but I've already contacted Scott Boras to track these posts and to start shopping my services elsewhere.
Where to begin? Well, what an interesting day in court for ANOTHER former NFL superstar (and I really should not be that kind at all) in Michael Vick. Vick got off scot free, in my opinion, and really should have gotten the full sentence of five years. He now has the ability, contingent upon good behavior, to see the light of day in a mere 18 months or so. So, at the end of the day, Vick supported and participated in the VICIOUS KILLING of pets. I think Judge Henry Hudson poignantly said, as he interrupted Michael Vick in the middle of his fake apology, that Vick should "apologize to the millions of kids that IDOLIZE you". The sad fact is that those words don't mean a damn thing to Vick. HE KILLS THINGS for FUN! And I'm not talking about killing ants with a magnifying glass; I'm talking about pets.. our pets...not just dogs..but our pets!! Burn in hell Vick...burn in Hell.
In an amazing turn about, Falcons owner Arthur Blank was interviewed during the MNF game and Blank "wishes Michael can play again in this league and possibly for the Falcons"... WHAT? But he did also say (of which he'll get a TON of hate mail for) that if Michael Vick spends his time in jail eating FRIED CHICKEN and french fries and blow up to 250lbs, then he might not make it back. Fried Chicken? REALLY? Fans, that's Arthur Blank c/o Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta, GA.....
The New York Mets... now wait, I am not going to say that they are the greatest team never to make the playoffs or how Mariano Rivera stole Billy Wagner's song... no, I am not going to waste your time by saying those things. However it absolutely sickens me after hearing Omar's latest sound bites: 1) "We won 88 games. That is not a terrible season 2) "Right now, you have to pick the Phillies [to win the East], because they're the champs. But I still like our club. "
Does anything scream 'FIRE ME' more than what he says above? I don't care how you project it, but you have show disappointment in the implosion of the team that YOU put together and enough of this glass is half full crap. And then you pick your arch nemesis to win the division? C'mon..if im David Wright im pissed....show some faith and confidence in your players.
I don't care how many wins the Patriots will end up having this year, but it will be forever stained because Bill Belicheck is unethical. You cannot argue with unethical behavior in this case and running up the score on most opponents will not change the fact that Belicheck should never be mentioned in the same sentence as the greatest coach of all time (Lombardi) ever again!
NFL Picks: STONE COLD LEAD PIPE LOCKS
Baltimore(-3) at Miami : Take Baltimore...won't be close
Buffalo (+5) at Cleveland: This is a field goal game that will come down to field position and special teams. Most important game for Buffalo in the past 10 years.
Kansas City (+4) vs. Tennessee: Vince Young won't survive in this league much longer and I'd take my money on Tony Gonzalez at home.
Indianapolis (-10.5) at Oakland: Indy has its confidence back and Jamarcus Russell may get the start...look for the Colts defense to have at least one touchdown.
For the Yankee contingent, I actually like hearing Brian Cashman say "Prospects are Suspects". The Yankees have too much future success wrapped up in Kennedy, Hughes and Chamberlain and that selling the farm for a 'suspect' might not do the Yankees as well as many may think. The Yankees pride themselves on building the franchise within... something that I have admired as a sports fan for years. I still think the Yankees can beat the Red Sox even with Santana. This will be the hungriest Yankees team in years when they take the field in 2008...it will be interesting.
Why does Oprah Winfrey feel she has to talk like she's from the 'hood' when she is on the stump for Barack Obama? Oprah Winfrey is a racist and insulted MANY people
Just for fun, folks... Just for fun... PRESS PLAY
