You Don't Mess With Jack Bauer's Daughter

Things in sports that have pissed me off as of late...
1. Weis, Charlie. WHY? He basically has the same record as Ty Willingham, who they drop kicked out of South Bend. He gets these amazing recruiting classes each year (correct me if I'm wrong but this past one was 8th overall?). He tells people that Notre Dame has a "strategic advantage" over every team in the country because of his big bad Patriots brain.
Remember when you hated Notre Dame because they were arrogant and GOOD?

It's not even fun to watch them fail anymore, because that's all they seem to do. He only won when he had Quinn and the rest of Ty Willingham's last recruiting class. He hasn't recruited winners and he hasn't coached with any sort of sucess. He got a 10 year extension because he almost beat USC.

As a proud member of the Irish American persuasion, I'm insulted that a team named after my people has turned into such a joke. Irish people stab you with a broken pool cue, they don't get slapped by Syracuse. Period. Fire his ass or change your name to the Fighting Welsh.

2. Sean Avery isn't allowed to speak. If you don't watch the NHL, allow me to bring you up to speed. The NHL's Dennis Rodman Sean Avery was suspended by the league for naughty things he said about his ex-girlfriend indefinitely.

What did he say about Elisha Cuthbert of 24 that got him benched with no end in site?

He said that Dion Phaneuf of Calgary was getting his "sloppy seconds" and that it was becoming a common thing for guys in the league to fall in love with his "sloppy seconds".
Oh Lord everyone grab your bibles and start saying the "Our Father" backwards.

Was it that bad? The Dallas Stars didn't suspend him, the frickin' league did. Hockey, where you can kick the crap out of eachother and get two minutes on the bench is telling a guy to stay home because he wasn't nice to his ex?
Why does everyone have to be Captain America these days? Whats wrong with having some bad guys floating around in our sports leagues? So an adult said somethig bad about another adult, who cares. And don't give me that crap about being a bad role model. You let your 7 year old watch hockey for christ sake. What is the NHL saying? Fighting? Good. Not being a gentleman? SUSPENSION!!!
Sean Avery isn't even that scary. The dude is an intern for Vogue Magazine in the off season. You want to suspend him over a comment he made? Suspend him for this one...
"You do suits and pants and that's about that. Women's clothes tell a story. That's what's interesting to me."
And on Elisha Cuthbert, to quote Tony Kornheiser of PTI and Mondy Night Football.

On Elisha Cuthbert...
"Everyone who was watching season one of 24 was rooting for the mountain lion to eat her."
3. Plaxi.....never mind I won't even touch that...

New 3. I can't stand Lebron James for a number of reasons. I think he's overrated, I think he's soft, and he's so full of himself that he actually thinks he's the second coming of Michael Jordan, something the someone as hated as Kobe Bryant won't even do.
But this New York crap is getting out of hand even for him. He told New York fans to wait because in two years it's "Gonna be a big day". What the Hell? Your on the Cavs you jackass! Your winning! Who cares where you play the goal should be winning a championship. You know, that big trophy thing they hand out at the end of the year for the best team in the NBA? You know, the thing Jordan held up 6 times.

The man, the round-mound-of-rebound himself Sir Charles Barkley said it best when Dan Patrick asked him about the New York-Lebron James relationship...

""If I was LeBron James, I would shut the hell up (...) I'm getting so annoyed he's talking about what he's going to do in two years. I think it's disrespectful to the game. I think it's disrespectful to the Cavaliers."

Amen brother.
Lebron then had the balls to call the Hall of Famer "stupid".
And in the words of Sir Charles, that's just "trrrrrrrrrrble"

Lol, loved this post. They just keep goin way overboard on these topics and I'm already sick of them after just a couple of days of hearing about them. P.S. it was season 2 where the mountain lion was after Elisha Cuthbert

Good call on the season 2. I need to fact check when I use Tony K quotes

Renaming the Fighting Irish to the fighting Welsh was hilarious. Is there anything good that comes from that country? It would be the perfect name for that team in Notre Dame that refuses to let a loser go, ESPECIALLY when they have all that alumni money to pay his enormous buyout.

Ally Weber said...

What Avery said was appalling, but he doesn't deserve to get suspended. It isn't the league's place to get involved in it, even if it was wrong.

Also, I loved the Fighting Irish comment.

I find the Sean Avery thing hilarious. This is absolutely pathetic he was suspended--and for four games. The best thing about the game are the fights and it's pathetic the NHL is trying to cut in and try to make them good guys. When I saw it on TV I thought it was hilarious and I really doubt Avery takes his comment back.
