Blow up the Phillies? It was worth it!

Jonah Keri is a damn good baseball writer, whose opinion I take seriously.  So to say it was disappointing to read the headline “Blow up the Phillies,” would be an understatement. 

But reading the piece made me think of two different conversations I had.

Bill Simmons or: how I realized Grantland is terrible for other reasons

I DID IT!!!!!!

After years of contemplation, and checking in on it multiple times a day, I finally figured it out…

I know why Grantland sucks!

An ode to Wingbowl

February is a special time of year
A time for football, fun and cheer

Yes, Wingbowl is at long last back
A tournament where chickens come under attack

A game where hero’s come to eat
A game where skinny people end in defeat

A spectacle like the world has never seen
Where you’re bound to see something obscene

I remember my first Yuengling in the parking lot
And watching Coop shit that was left to rot

49ers vs. Ravens or "Worst Superbowl Ever"

I’ve never seen Casablanca, but there is a line in the movie that I’ve heard and cannot wait for the moment I’ll get to use it on some poor unsuspecting foe. 

A guy leans over to Humphrey Bogart and says “You despise me, don’t you?”
Bogart replies, “Well, if I gave you any thought I probably would.”

It’s a great line and perfectly sums up my feeling for this years Super Bowl.

 Seriously the last time I was this non excited about a Super Bowl was probably Steelers, Cardinals in 2009.  And I know that wasn’t very long ago, but c’mon, it was the Cardinals.  A team so historically bad that at least that was at least a little bit interesting.
