Jays B-Ball: Non-Con Mercifully Ends Tomorrow

Posted by sburk44 on December 21, 2009

I gave up Little Rock for this??

Going into the final game of the non-conference schedule tomorrow against Houston baptist, the Jays sit at a disappointing 4-6, even with a big win against the Huskers. The Iona loss at the end of the Old Spice Classic tournament is probably the worst loss of the bunch – but not pulling out one of the tougher Dayton, New Mexico, Michigan, Xavier games really makes this feel like one of the worse starts to a season in a few years.

Back to wasting time

Posted by sburk44 on December 21, 2009

7-6 BABY!

What a terrible Monday to decide to get back into a regular posting routine…no time to waste bitching about a loss to the raiders though…too many other things to talk/complain about:

1) Lets say you gamble and I gave you -250 odds that one of the following teams win: San Diego, Indy, New Orleans, plus 1 more of your choice will win the Super Bowl. Do you take the -250 and what other team do you take?

2) During my month long neglecting of the blog – a few people have left some great little gems.

-Thanks to Gargs for betting on Wyo during the border war – no doubt giving them good karma for the NEW MEXICO BOWL win – which was by far the best sports moment of the weekend for Denver/Wyo/Mountain time zone fans.

-Mr. J Theide is dominating the messages without so much as a peep from me. So sir – a few thoughts – then I will send you an e-mail to invite you to become an author and make your own posts. (1) The Brian Kelly rumors already don’t sound good…Scared of recruiting an disciplining African American players, violent abusive temper, and subtly looks like my dad from a profile angle. Actually – that last one is not so much a bad thing -just kinda weird. (2) Your NBA take is diseased…the product is solid and the prices are no more ridiculous than any random NHL game or MLB game in a decent market. At least half of the games on every night features an interesting match up with fun and LIKABLE stars…LeBron, Nash, CPIII, Durantula, Melo, Dirk, D-Ho, Kobe, Wade, (ok – Kobe is fun to hate and I am not sure if Melo is “likable”, but all of a sudden this league has more people with their shit together than the NFL (more on this in a later post))

3) Thank you Tiger – only your little sextcapades could have brough linds and I’s guilty pleasures of sports and gossip together in such a neat little package. We talk more than ever these days – and its all because of your nasty little ambien habits.

4) Nuggets 2 game slide makes this team’s record deceptive. NOT a good defensive team without all top 4 stars playing well – no depth in the front court and Chauncy looks old this year. Its too early to concede everything to the Lakers – but if the Kobbettes do falter in some way (injury), then we are not the team to pick up the slack – currently, that would be Dallas.

5) Ok – a little bitching about the Broncos: I had to watch the game via the redzone channel – which apparently does not switch to a crappy game (ours) in the red zone when their marquee game (eagles?) are at the 50? anyway – I missed the redzone disasters for Orton and Co. until that 4th Q must-have TD after the Stokley catch. A fade to Scheffler, on thrid down? Can someone show McD the percentage of completed fade routes to tight ends in the league this year? Im just guessing – but its gotta be under 10%. Also – what did Hillis do to McD’s family?

And…We’re Back – Joe’s in Town

Posted by sburk44 on December 3, 2009

Joe and Zuzanna are visiting from Denver this weekend – Joe and I have our fun planned out below. We had a draft (alternating choices) of the games we liked and Joe started things off. Follow along at home if your a degenerate gamble.

Winner of the Most bets wins the weekend...Still figuring out what that should be
