Favre cries wolf. Wolf tells him to go F-himself.

Just shut the hell up already, you attention whore. Let’s take a look back at just why Brett Favre’s “retirement announcement” is probably not even worthy of any posting by anyone anywhere anytime (this post notwithstanding): March 2008: Favre tells Packers he is retiring. February 2009: Favre tells Jets he is retiring. August 2010: [...]

“I’ve been traded to……NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!”

One of the other Dirty Hippies posed the following question yesterday: Here’s the scenario. You’re a pro athlete. One day the coach calls you in and says “son, you’ve been traded to ___________.” What the worst team you can fill in the blank with? Four leagues, and feel free to elaborate on why if you feel [...]

New LeBron Ad: “I’m still an arrogant ass”

If you haven’t seen LeBron James’ new ad for the-sneaker-company-that-shall-not-be-named, it’s quite the treat. In an attempt to either tell everyone who was pissed off at the selfish arrogant self serving way he handled his free agency that they should go scratch, or to rebuild his image, LeBron comes off looking more like the [...]

Favre “retirement” clock ticking. And only 3 years too late.

I used to be a big fan of Brett Favre. For me, the turning point came when he held the Packers hostage with the first of his 46 retirement decisions and how he treated his successor, Aaron Rodgers. If Favre was truly a team player and truly cared about the organization, city and [...]

Is Halladay already a Hall of Famer?

Yes, he’s only played for 13 seasons so far, and yes, I’m a self-described “tough grader” when it comes to who gets my vote. But on the other hand, I’ve always put a highly subjective “does he FEEL like a Hall of Famer when I’m watching his career unfold” test on players – rightfully [...]

Why LeBron is going to the Nets

I’m not big on making predictions because I am usually proven wrong, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and make the case for LeBron James signing with the New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets. And no, it has nothing to do with the lack of faith I have in “my” Knicks, although I [...]

Something’s gotta be done.

“Poor poor Chris Henry”, they used to say. “He’s misunderstood. He’s really not like that usually. He was serious about turning his life around.” But after his death, the doubts were back. “Maybe you can’t change” replaced all of the hope that he would get things straight and finally show the consistent [...]

The calm before the storm

Tonight really kicks off the start of what has been built up to be nothing short of a true “silly season” in the NBA. We’ve already seen the “:LeBron sweepstakes and US tour”, the turnover in Cleveland’s front office, the (unofficial) courtship by the Bulls of Phil Jackson and the Knicks, Nets, Bulls, Cavs [...]

(Don’t?) Believe the Hype….

I’m a sucker for hyped rookie talent in baseball. Have been for years – since a hot September by a young player led to a great Strat-o-Matic card the following year. Hell, one of my oldest and closest friends bought a batch of Dave Valle rookie cards based on his [...]
