Meat Lover

Merry Christmas!!! Happy Holidays!!!

I am up pretty early this morning, 5:30am to be exact, and I'm ready for food.

In about 12 hours or so, I will be cutting into a nice piece of Prime Rib.

I hope everyone out there has a wonderful day.

A Good Day

The whole Halladay storyline in Toronto has finally come to a close. The greatest pitcher in baseball is now officially not a Toronto Blue Jay and will not be found north of the border come 2010.

Thank you baseball gods!

I am ecstatic that the Jays finally dealt the one we call The Doc before the season started and have given him a legitimate chance at winning the World Series. For all those people who bitch and moan about what we are going to get in return I have one thing to say to you, "Fuck Off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" This guy has done everything he has been asked to do while pitching at the Dome and didn't complain about what he had in the dugout when it was time to battle day in and day out. I wouldn't care if we just gave him a way. Seriously, giving him a way for free.

I have seen him a total of 4 times. The first time I saw him pitch I didn't really make note of him except it was a game that the Jays won. The second time I saw him I was one of those teenagers working behind the counter making pizza when he was running through the level 500 concourse before a game. I was in awe and the nice guy he was, he gave me a smile while my mouth was wide open. Oh yeah, did I mention he's a beast!!! Third/Fourth time I saw him was on the mound where he won another two games for the Jays. I didn't have the chance to see him live in his final year at the Dome but I'm praying I see him on TV pitching the clinching game in the 2010 World Series.

Thanks man, seriously, thanks for everything!

4 to 5

So, Kobe Bryant and Nike have just introduced the Kobe V's. Hmmm...wait. Didn't they just introduce the Kobe IVs? Is it me or is it people just keeping coming out with shoes/shirts/jerseys just for the sake of making more and more money? I know this is capitalism at it's finest but coming out with a new product every month (exaggeration) is a little much.

Also, what is the deal with low's these days? The reason, in my opinion, recreational ballers out there shouldn't buy these shoes and play in them is simple, we do not tape our ankles when we play. Kobe and all the other NBA players out there can use low's because their ankles are already taped to the extreme. They honestly don't need any more support with a high top shoe. On the other hand, recreational players need the extra support from high tops because they don't have the benefit of a trainer taping their ankles up before hitting the court.

Nice shoe but for playing ball as an average Joe, this might not be the greatest shoe out there. Go out and buy a high top and keep those ankles injury free.

Photo taken from a Japanese newspaper

As you have noticed, I'm staying away from the whole Tiger thing but look what we have here.

Even in Japan, Tiger is being ripped a part. If you don't understand Japanese don't worry, you can easily come up with something with the picture on the right and also the "family tree" type diagram underneath Tiger.

Made my day.

Donations Anyone?

Simple and ready for my feet.

A Sports Fan

If you are a hockey fan you will appreciate the above video.

Even though I am a born Torontonian and have never once cheered for the Habs, I still had a second of awe when I saw this. Seeing all the greats who once laced up their skates and found a spot on the TV every Saturday night in our living rooms made me think how lucky we are to have lived to see them.

I missed out on seeing some of the greats play in hockey, and in every other sport, but just think about how lucky we are right now to have lived to see Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Pete Sampras, Pedro Martinez, Joe Montana, and the list could go on and on for days.

With all the writers out there that bitch and moan about their team and how much they suck, why not write about the game itself. The players who make your night entertaining and just take in the great thing most of us take for granted.

Let's enjoy the thing we call sports.

MJ & Black Mamba

When I saw the winning shot by Kobe Bryant to beat the Heat, I instantly thought about Jordan and his shot over Ehlo and the Cavs.

Seriously, it's the same shot!

Sky High

Oh my gosh!

Plus a 110-78 win over the Bulls.

How sweet it feels.

Rooookie from USC

The rookie from USC, DeMar DeRozan, is catching my eye these days with his play above the rim. Every time I check out the "Game in Six" highlights, DeMar seems to find a way to get himself plastered throughout the highlight package. I always love watching rookies come into the league and attack the rim with every touch of the ball and I hope it continues. I've been let down a multiple times in the past...*cough* VC...

Hopefully, DeMar doesn't let the contract and big dollar signs keep him out in the perimeter to prevent the physical play that comes along with attacking the rim.

Mental Break

Watching this video leaves me with a complete blank in my mind as to what was this dude thinking during this play. After watching it, what are you thinking?

I understand that linemen are suppose to hold their position so they won't be called for a penalty but after a few seconds of movement, from opponents and from your teammates, plus the lack of whistles or flags being thrown on the ground, wouldn't one at least stand up?

Even after this blank slate in my head, this is why I love sports. You just never know what is going to happen next. The second you think you have seen the stupidest, weirdest, and most mind boggling play that is when something like this will pop up.
