When I lived in Boston ,I loved going to the Garden. When they tore down the original Boston Garden I shed a tear and raised a glass to the first place I ever attended an NBA game. Red was still employed by the Celtics, as their President, when he died.
I will toast him today..one of the great old men of round ball.
Congrats to the St. Louis Cards and their fans. I was compelled to put that in. LaRussa finally pulled it off.
I have been trying to post on Blogger since Sat. Morning..bitch is sure fickle lately.
They commit errors in each game. Their pitching isn't up to snuff. They get a lead and they can't hold it. The odds of them winning the next three games are slim and none.
But I hold out hope none the less.
To make matters much worse..Bruce Bochy has agreed to manage the friggin San Fran Giants. He is abandoning my Padres.
I am off to take a pill for the physical pains of a trashed back. I hope the emotional pains take a hike whilst I sleep. I suppose it could be worse..the Padres could be moving to Las Vegas or my mother could call and announce she is coming here for the winter instead of San Diego...
By two different QB's..The Tuna looked suicidal from there on out. I thought he was going to cry during the post-game Q&A, which in and of itself is scary. This from a man that will tell a member of the media to fuck off quicker than I can tell my son no when he wants to borrow some money. He apologized for 20 minutes, for the love of god.
As for Kenny Rogers..it doesn't matter. People who have played the game weighed in and basically told ESPN to shut the fuck up about it. As long as it did not change the way the ball behaved, they all do it and no one gives a shit. I don't care if cat shit gave him a better grip on the ball..it does not change the ball's spin. Now...if only we wouldn't spend the remaining games getting shots of all the pitchers palms.
I can. The man is freaking instense. 46,000 fans screaming his name. Well, make that 46,001. I was driving the cats mad with my yelling. Todd Jones gave up a run in the 9th inning..fucker. Ol Sparky Anderson was there to root on his Tigers. The St. Lou catcher, Yadier Molina, took a baseball to the nads, poor dude..he was hunched over for a few minutes.
Kenny was told to go wash his hands early in the game by the Ump. No one is saying what, if anything he had on his fingers. The Cards could of got him tossed if they had bitched about it. BBT is saying it was pine tar. Rogers said in the post game interview it was "dirt"...oookay.
He actually pitched better AFTER he washed his hands. So, I don't care at this point.
The series moves to St. Lou for three games starting Tuesday.
On the football front, the Chargers lost to a rotten team today. KC beat em and it's being reported by ESPN, that Shawn Merriman of the Chargers will be cooling his heels for 4 games for steroid use. Damn, they just dont get it. Roids....
Have a good monday y'all.
Detroit went down the tubes fairly quickly. The rookie pitcher for St. Lou, Anthony Reyes pitched a gem. Only 4 hits in 8 innings and two lousy batters crossed home plate. The Detroit pitcher was also a rookies and his stats weren't that sterling. Justin Verlander didn't do bad..he just wasnt' as good as Reyes with 5 innings pitched, 6 hits and 6 earned runs. Damn..
Game 2 is tomorrow 5pm Left Coast time..I will assume the position and watch with anticipation. Come on Kenny Rogers..get the Tigers a win darlin..you can do it.
Then he said the Cards would win 1 game in this final series before the World Series. You know, I think he was probably sandbagging. Damn, I hate sandbaggers. But the Mets did their best pitcher tonight..last years Cy Young winner Chris Carpenter. Sorry for the loss B, but he can't win them all.
I am still rooting for the Tigers in the World Serious..no, its not a typo..not for a manic like moi.
Then I have Football and roundball is starting up. I will be semi-lost until spring training. But sports are sports..I hooked up my wireless router tonight. I can haul the laptop all over the house now. Good stuff for a computer addict. It also means I can sit in the living room and talk to the ball and chain whilst being online. Nirvana some might call it. I just call it giving him some quality time..LOL..
So, the Cards need only 1 win to get into the World Series. The last two games will be played at Shea, but even this seems unlikely to help the Mets at this point. Jeff Weaver, the winner of last nights game, has pulled a Derrick Lowe-type of post-season out of his ass. Lowe had a horrible regular season the year the BoSox won it all, but he was the savior for them in the playoffs..Weaver reminds me of Lowe at this point.
I am rooting for the Tigers anyway..so I don't care who wins the NLCS. Jim Leyritz, come on down old man..I hope you get the ring. With all that time off between the ALCS and this weekends start of the World Series..I hope your pitchers are well rested.
Steve "Psycho" Lyons won't lose his part-time gig with the Dodgers and Sweet Lou Pinella has stuck up for him both in print and on the air, with regard to the tacky and supposed racist statement/joke he made on national tv during the ALCS.
Speaking of "Sweet" Lou Pinella, he is now the proud manager of those shitty Chicago Cubs. Lou has very little patience and one would think managing the Cubbies will try all the patience he has..Good Luck Lou..your gonna need it, along with some tranquilizers..
Koren Robinson, WR for the Packers and world-reknown drunk has gotta a year off....without pay from the NLF. He plead guilty to charges of drunken driving and fleeing police stemming from a high-speed chase in August. This wasn't Koren's first brush with the law whilst drunk...nor his second. Koren had this to say after the NFL told him to sober up for a year: "I am disappointed".
No shit jackass..so is Green Bay. You screwed up with Seattle and Minnesota as their star drunk..you get a third shot and what do you do? You get hammered and played high-speed chase with the cops again..some folks are felony dumb..I am looking at you Koren. Hope you saved some of the major league dough you have made..a year is a long time to go without a paycheck.
Football was good and bad today. Terrell finally found the endzone..3 times to be exact. BFD. The Chargers scored their asses off against a lousy team. BFD. Big Ben Roethlisberger and the Steel curtain beat the bejeezuz out of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise 45-7. Three of their regular starters didn't suit up for the Steelers, which does make the huge blowout even more interesting..are the Steelers finally gelling or are the Chiefs that friggin bad? The Chiefs backup QB has been quite decent lately..but evidently not this weekend.
But I have decided to keep Big Ben on my fantasy rosters for another week, like I have a choice at this point in the season... He is my backup QB, so no fear.When Big Ben was asked what changed this week he said:
"I tried throwing to the guys in the black shirts rather than the guys in the white shirts," -Good answer dude, like your sarcasim.
Have a good Monday you hard working sots.
I liked Psycho when he co-anchored the original FSN verson of SportsCenter. It wasn't his first offense at being offensive on the air apparently, he has practice.
Oh fucking well. Sorry your leaving dude..take care.
Tigers in the World Serious. Cool. Congrats to Jimmy Leyland and the boyz..
But I am rooting for the NL leader in wins..why you ask?
Because I can not root for the team that knocked my Pad's out of the playoffs..very simple no?
Tommy Glavine was one of the best..in his prime. The only thing he has going for him now is that he has been in the playoffs a million times..He's been to the big show.
ok..not a million..but close..He is a great pitcher to have on your team when everyone gets the fucking jitters in the playoffs becuase they have never been there.Glavine has been there with the Braves..alot. And he can tell them what its like. His clubhouse presence matters at this point. He doesnt' get the jitters..he loves this time of year. He lives for this time of year. Its what the whole fucking ball of wax is about...the playoffs..
And Tommy only allowed 4 hits..fuck me running..thats low..I would kill for Tommy to have been on the Pads..Hes fucking 40 years old for the love of god..give him his due ok? This is the best of the best...suck it and deal.
Since most of the Mets have been with the friggin Dodgers at some point in the last two years..god knows I love em because they are no longer with the Dodgers..fuck the Dodgers. fuck em hard with a big ol pole. Mota was with the Dodgers last year and they had no faith in him. So Fuck the Dodgers....who is the getting tee times?
And as for Weaver....that fucking space cadet...he only gave up 4 hits too. But the difference was the 2 runs he handed them. Glavine gave up zero runs..This time of year..every run counts.Besides..Weaver is a mench..a fucking mench..he is either good or bad.no in between.
But the difference tonight was The Cards don't have a pitching staff...its a fact jack. Their closer..Izzy is out..the rest of the pitchers depend on the offense getting some runs to cover their ass..yeah yeah yeah..Carp is last years Cy winner..bfd..he can't pitch every damn game.
So my money is on the Muts..god bless those former Dodgers,every one.
It is not gay however.
Lynchburg VA's own Brandon Inge was the player of the game. I didn't get to see Jim Leyland trying to snitch a smoke ..dammit. I get a smile when I see him do that. I know, thats weird..but hey. c'est moi.
Long-ass day. Not as bad as black dogs but a long hard day none the less..4:20 couldn't come fast enough. The Net Neutrality thang was excellent. I taped the audio portion of it and will play it back in the next couple of days and blog the good, important stuff. My two dear readers need to at least blog about it..the whole Net Neutrality thang affects us all, regardless of personal beliefs or politics. I will be checking blogs and you guys know who you are..you will break my heart if you don't post about it...enough of that shit for tonite.
I gotta get comfy. Have a good Hump day ya'll..I have been sitting in this chair much too friggin long today.
Its about freedom, net neutrality. Freedom of speech, freedom that we have enjoyed, up until the cable providers got involved in trying to take it all away.

ATTENTION KMART SHOPPERS: The PBS Moyers show on Net Neutrality is NEXT WED. the 18th..sorry..my bad...gives me more time to do an excellent writeup..
I do NOT live in NYC, so I have no idea of the validity of this article, but here it is. ESPN is also reporting Sweet Lou Pinella will replace him..
Damn..thats harsh. A winning season and the playoffs every year and your ass is still gone..ain't that some shit...
Hey, I need something to hang onto.
With the pitchers going tomorrow..I can only hope and pray. Woodie is an old man...Carpenter is last years Cy Young winner..doesn't bode well for my Pads..but you know what?
I still love the game. And I still love my Pads.specially since they lasted longer than the Dodgers :)
I love that Detroit is in the next round. God love em and Jim Leyland, I know I do. The A's and the Tigers..wotta matchup! Come on kids..rejoice muthafuckas!
Kenny Rogers is da man. Seriously, I have had his measly ass in all my fantasy leagues for the past two years. He is almost as old as Roger the Rocket Clemens(41 as opposed to 42)..but unlike Roger, he is still playing and not getting a Tee time for his golf game. Kenny has spunk as witnessed by his assault of a photog last season. Not that I condone such behavior..just saying..
God damn, I love this game! and screw you that don't. Well, not really, but you know what I am saying I hope. Life is more than paying the mortgage and credit card bills..its about the wide world of sports too..
among other things..
So, we here at Moments in Time, have found the perfect primer for those of you that can't find your ass with both hands with regard to the baseball playoffs :) Its from my daily political spot, Slate.com. Here are a few do's and dont's:
American League Division Series: Oakland A's vs. Minnesota Twins
Historical context: Oakland won the World Series in 1989, thanks to the syringe-powered exploits of "Bash Brothers" Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire. Suggest to your viewing partners that light-hitting A's outfielders Jay Payton and Mark Kotsay should henceforth be known as the "Sucky Siblings."
American League Division Series: Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees
Historical context: The 26-time champs haven't won it all since 2000, falling to the Diamondbacks and the Marlins in their last two World Series appearances. With no traditional Yankees rivals in the AL field, debate whether losing to the Twins, Tigers, or A's would cause Billy Crystal the most embarrassment.
I am skipping the Dodgers/Mets series since I am praying to GOD that the Dodgers lose..so onto the National League Division Series: St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Diego Padres
Conversation starter: "I guess La Russa can't be blamed for the Cards' 4.54 team ERA." Conversation stopper: "But he deserves all the blame for that greasy mullet."
Conversation starter: "Cla Meredith was the best relief pitcher in the majors this year." Conversation stopper: "The only stat I care about is the Cuteness Factor."
-personally, I would smack the shit out of you if you use the Convo stopper we share in the section above :)
Enjoy the games!
61. Coming to the conclusion that if Nick Swisher were an adult film star his stage name would be … Nick Swisher.
47. Chris Carpenter's attempt to prove a one-man starting rotation is good enough to lead a team to a World Series title.
42. More camera shots of Joe Mauer's girlfriend.(They have a pic of her up..she is a looker)
32. Watching Padres catcher Mike Piazza throw two-hoppers to second base.
23. Potential camera shots of Tigers manager Jim Leyland stealing a smoke.
13. The possibility of St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols facing Hoffman in the bottom of the ninth with the game on the line.
The Brewers..The Cards have lost 7 of their last 10 games while the Padres have won 8 of their last 10. I will not wish the Cards luck, fuck em..its every fan for their team at this juncture. Luis "Gonzo" Gonzalez was a good player that won the 7th game of the World Series for the Dbacks against the Yanks so many moons ago. I was living in AZ for that series..and I can still see Luis smiling through his tears on the field after the game was over. They will miss him in AZ, the fans that is..the owners..not so much..they told him months ago he wouldn't be back as a Dback..Luis isn't ready to hang up his glove..so I hope he finds a team that will appreciate him as a person and a player. BTW..the Padres win was pretty ugly today..it ended on a call that didn't look right to me or the announcers I was listening to. Hope the Dodgers get their asses handed to them when they visit the Mets in:
Now, the Titan with the over-abundant supply of testosterone was Albert Haynesworth. Fat Albert has been in trouble before, but this one takes the cake..he stomped on the head and face of a player that had just gotten a TD for Dallas. His helmet had come off..and there was Albert..standing above the fallen player..
Andre Gurode said he did not have any words with Albert prior to the face stomping. He had to get stitches in his forehead and below his eye. Fucking Fat Albert is lucky he didnt' take the guys eye out. Then the sumbitch had the nads to protest the call of unsportsmanlike conduct and toss HIS helmet, which thankfully got his ass tossed out of the game. I heard that this isn't Alberts first brush with unsportsman-like conduct. I hope they toss his ass for the rest of the season. Sure, there is emotional highs and lows on a football field, but to kick/stomp the face of a man laying at your feet is pure and simple evil..the man has problems and they need to be addressed before he is allowed on the field of play. This is a game..its a fucking game played for lots and lots of money and glory. But that shouldn't provide a backdrop for intentionally going after a player who has said or done nothing to piss you off, other than scoring on your worthless ass. Be a man, suck it up and deal Albert you douchebag.
