NFL Flex Scheduling really sucks

I'm a Colts season ticket holder, along with Floyd Hustle. Now I love the 1pm games, I can arrive in Indianapolis (2 hour drive from Ft. Wayne), eat, drink a little, watch the game and be home by 7 on most occasions. 4pm games are a little worse, meaning I would get home around 10 and have to wait around Indy for most of the afternoon. Night games piss me off like no other. Time out, after time out, after time out. It's horrible, you just sit there in the RCA Dome (or any other stadium) and wait for NBC, or ESPN to make some damn money. Games take almost 3:30 to 4 hours and if you want to plunge $200 down on a hotel room, you could cop out there, and I wouldn't have to make the trek home at 1 in the morning.

But noooooo, some of us have to work the next morning, and don't live in the great Indianapolis metro area. So some nights I wouldn't get home until 2, wake up at 6:30 to make it to work on time. It's bullshit. Try sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours doing spreadsheets on four hours of work, it's not fun.

So continuing, the NFL which already had games listed for times that are mostly suitable, decided in their infinite wisdom, to move to Colts game to NBC at 8:15. I cannot stand this at all. It takes forever. The game means nothing to the Colts, but it's the last regular season game at the RCA Dome, so it's a sentimental game for most Colts fans. But why the move? You know some season holder tickets have plans that could force them to have to sell the games due to this stupid flex scheduling rule, it's just too fucking bad NBC would have to show a crap game for one night. The last time I checked football is better that 90% of what is on TV.

The NFL needs to scrap this, if you want big games on at night, you should be able to guess what teams should be somewhat respectable for the next season. It's a shitty move to the 60,000 people that have to rearrange schedules so NBC can be a little happier because 99% of what they broadcast is pure garbage.

Bob Sanders signs LT deal, Marvin Harrison to play Sunday

The Indianapolis Colts today, according to sources have signed safety Bob Sanders to a long term deal making him the highest paid safety in the NFL. Sanders who is anchoring the Colts defense this year, is a man on a mission when he is out there on the field, easily making his worth, worthwhile.

Sanders is also a crowd favorite of the Colts and is one of the hardest hitters on the field. Locking him up gives the Colts secondary a man who can anchor them for the next 5 years.

Also missing since October, wide receiver Marvin Harrison will play this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Harrison likely won't play very long, but will be used to get timing back for the playoffs. They'll need him more then, rather than against the Titans.

Back, but only for a little bit

We all hope you enjoyed the Holiday season, and as it continues into next week. We'll still be on an unofficial break probably until late next week.

The votes are in on our Tim Tebow hottest babe, and the voters agreed that "Boobs" was our winner, winning breasts down. She took 57% of the vote, while the "Newcomer" grabbed 36% and in last place, the "Blonde" had 6% of the vote. We thank you all for voting, and Sports Illustrated for giving the masses a chance to vote.

While we've only been blogging a short three weeks, we look forward to next year, and bringing you more witty, spectacular stories, the only way we know how. So to all of our readers, have a safe and Happy New Year.

Hey CBS, its not 1992 anymore, Michigan sucks now

<---------An actual photo of the state of Michigan basketball. Why the hell is it on TV?

Nothing is better in the sports world than March Madness on CBS, which they do a great job of coverage. But I think they need to realize its not the 1990s anymore.

For the second time in three weeks, the Michigan Wolverines, owners of a 4-7 record this season and zero NCAA Tournament appearances since 1998, are on national television on CBS, this time to take on UCLA on Saturday.

A few weeks ago, Michigan took on Duke as the first game of a doubleheader, with the Blue Devils edging out a win by 28 points.

What the hell is going on CBS? Michigan is no longer a program that anyone cares about, not only around the country, but in the state of Michigan. You may as well air old repeats of Diagnosis Murder in the time slot instead of the game, it will bring in more viewers, especially in the coveted 90-110 year old age demographic.

If you want to put Michigan on television, but them on against a team of their caliber, such as Harvard. Oh wait, Harvard and former coach Tommy Amaker beat the Wolverines. Or how about Central Michigan? Hold on, powerful Michigan lost to them too.

Wake up CBS, how bout showing some teams ppl actually care about and would like to see before March. How about giving Butler some national exposure? Or a couple teams from the Missouri Valley Conference? Or BYU?

I would suggest you could show old highlights of the Fab 5, but in all actuality, those cheating teams technically don't exist either.

Mark Prior heading home....Can Steve Bartman join him?

Chances are Mark Prior will sign a one year deal with the San Diego Padres, unless the Houston Astros make a late push.

The Cubs decided not to offer Prior a contract for the 2008 season and cut ties with the second overall pick in the 2001 draft. This upsets me as a Cubs fan because he is still young and I know with the luck(or curse) of the Cubs he will return to his 2003 form.

When Prior signs with his new team I am going to contact the comapny Steve Bartman works for and tell them to relocate him.

Duke/UNC having an "ugly off" rivalry?

Seriously, collegiate athletes are picking up some nasty women. First there was the Duke Lacrosse caper, now The Big Lead led us to this UNC Football caper.

Here is a picture of the girl in question, and wow is she a looker, but that's not all, here is we think Nell Carter helping out the cause (go to the second picture). Now you can read the story at The Big Lead, we'll basically mimic what they have to say. But seriously are they just picking up ugly tramps or what?

I mean the Basketball rivalry between UNC-Duke is pretty heated, but is the rivalry for picking up the biggest skank now something that needs to be looked at? Athletes should pulling in some Grade A tail, I don't call this it. Seriously are women THAT bad in that area? I can't wait to see what NC State will come up with now...

Happy Holidays from Friends of Crazy Joe Davola

It's been a crazy two weeks here at Friends of Crazy Joe Davola, we've been linked in S.I and ESPN, already gotten more hits than ever expected, and no longer have to be under nazi regime.

We'd like you to remember to vote for your favorite Tim Tebow Hottie. Also we'll probably be on a posting hiatus for a while. Most of us will be doing traveling during the holiday season. But don't worry we'll post whenever we get a chance.

Enjoy the bowl games, college basketball, NFL and boobs. And to SkinDog, Trip McFeely, KDoles, Earl, and Floyd Hustle, have a Merry Christmas. To NDub, burn in hell. To all of our readers, Happy Holidays to you and yours. And before we go, a picture for all of you to get you in the Holiday Spirit:

IPFW's S.I.D should know this is not a newspaper

We all went to IPFW, a small crap university in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Anyways they went DI a couple years back and never have smelled success, likely never will (or at least I hope). Anyways they lost a tough ROAD game last night to Kent State. Now since it's a home game for Kent State, you know calls might go their way.

Anyways IPFW's amazing S.I.D writes the stories in the online version, here a capsule of what he said after the loss:

"Then, on the next trip up the floor, a controversial offensive foul was called on IPFW junior forward David Carson, giving the Flashes the ball right back.

That is when Fisher got his layin to go, and seal the 9th win of the season for KSU."

Now I understand being upset about a loss, when your team maybe gets 1 road victory a year, but I doubt the referees were out to intentionally screw IPFW, come on now. Even if the call was "controversial" it was probably the right one, suck it up and say an offensive foul happened. Lets not be one-sided and stupidly blind.

Face facts, IPFW isn't that good, their record should be 2-7 since most teams don't count games against NAIA schools in actual play. I can only hope Ball State beats them for their first win...

Good god daddy likes Arizona State

Since Sports Illustrated on Campus gave us some major love yesterday, we'll return the favor today. By that we're going to link you to pictures of the amazing cheerleader of the week. Her name is Lauren Thompson, and wowsers, I like. I have a soft spot for blondes anyways, but she's just gorgeous.

Go to Sports Illustrated and see her twenty questions. You won't really care, but look at her picture.

Hey SkinDog, she's never had a bad date, maybe there is a shot for you!

Whatever happened to Alex Karras?

Alex Karras was a little before my time when he played football, but by all accounts he was a bad ass on the field. An University of Iowa and Detroit Lions football player, Karras 6'2" 255 pound stature was great for bruising people up on the field. But I remember Karras more for his roles in movies and TV.

The first role I remember him in was the god awful show Webster, I barely even remember it to this day, except the girl in the show had huge cans. It turns out the girl with the huge cans was Karras real life wife, Susan Clark. Also you know the show is good when Eugene Roche is in it.

While I finally grew older I remember watching Blazing Saddles with my dad. It still to this day remains one of my favorite movies. Karras played Mongo the dimwitted bad guy turned good, after Sheriff Bart tricks him "looney tunes" style. Just the pure size of Mongo in that movie is impressive.

Then came Porky's, the true adolescent male movie. If you're ages of 12-21 and never seen this movie, what is your problem? Karras starred in the move as Porky's brother and Sheriff of Wallacetown. Karras once again shows his inner bad ass in this movie, giving many quotable lines in it, to match the rest of the great movie. It also stars Karras wife, as Cherry Forever, in one of the more memorable scenes in the movie

But where is Karras now? I did some searching around but didn't find much. I did find out that he is also from Indiana along with us. But Alex Karras is a true man's man, and stars in two of the greatest comedies ever.

The Boss eats Red Sox World Series ball

No not George Steinbrenner or the real BOSS. It was Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon's dog, Boss, who chewed the ball.

"He plays with baseballs like they are his toys, he jumped up one day on the counter and snatched it. He likes rawhide. He tore that thing to pieces. Nobody knows that. I'll keep what's left of it."

Why is there always controversy with the ball every time the Red Sox win a world series?

We have found the image of Boss chewing the ball:

Wait, that is Vicks' dog......oh well you get the idea.


AFC Playoff Picture and Super Bowl Prediction

My friends, the NFL playoffs are right around the corner and the conference that everybody will be paying attention to is the AFC. In fact, why even have the NFC playoffs? They might as well just hand the Vince Lombardi trophy to the winner of the AFC Championship game.

This is how the playoff seedings will look after week 17:

1. New England Patriots
2. Indianapolis Colts
3. San Diego Chargers
4. Cleveland Browns
5. Jacksonville Jaguars
6. Pittsburgh Steelers


San Diego 27 Pittsburgh 13
Jacksonville 28 Cleveland 24

Jacksonville heads to New England and wins a tough, hard fought game, 24-21, to hand New England their first loss of the season.
Indianapolis over San Diego, 31-24, to avenge a loss earlier in the season.

Finally, the matchup that Jacksonville has been craving, a chance to beat their dreaded rivals for their first trip to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, their coach Jack Del Rio melts down along with the defense and ends up falling short for the third time this season, 21-17.

Indy makes their second trip to the Super Bowl in as many years and pulls off the upset against TO and Romo, 27-17, for their second consecutive Super Bowl championship.

That, my friends is how the AFC and the Super Bowl will shake out.

Former IU player turned hairstylist??

Yes I am shocked reading this as well, but it appears so. Former IU basketball player Larry Richardson completed time at the Paul Mitchell School in Orlando, Florida. Don't believe me? Scroll down to page 5 in the link and you'll see the proof.

Larry was always an enigma for the Hoosiers, it looked like he had a wealth of talent ready to go at any point, but often looked lost out there. But he did hustle his ass off as a player.

Apparently the constant schedule of a "professional athlete" led Richardson to taking some time off and pursuing the hair styling school. Even questions were asked to Larry as well, as he apparently has loved cutting hair since he was 12, has a cosmetology degree, and wants to open up his own hair salon.

We'd like to congratulate Larry on his future endeavours with hair, it's not every day you see a former player go to a Paul Mitchell Hair Salon School

Purdue lost to WHO??? Wofford College??

Excuse me while I laugh HAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAH. Oh my that felt good. See all of us are rabid IU fans, not the bandwagon, left when Mike Davis was coach guys, but the real thing. Nothing made my night more than seeing the lousy constant spouting off Turdue Boilermakers lose to WOFFORD COLLEGE.

I love it, absolutely love it! This is the best early Christmas present to date. HAHAHA, listening to the Turdue fans gloat was priceless.

"We have the best freshman class in the Nation"

"Chris Kramer will shut down Eric Gordon"

"We will make the NCAA's this year"

"I'd rather have Kramer for four years over Gordon for one"

"Purdue will be better than North Carolina in a couple of years"

"Purdue will compete for a National Title in less than two years"

Folks, I can't make this stuff up, go on to the Purdue Message Boards at ESPN and snoop around, you'll find it. The fact is Turdue will always be a never was in basketball and will always be jealous of the five banners that Indiana has. Purdue cannot compete with IU. I do like Turdue's freshman class of Scott Martin, Rob Hummel, E'twaun Moore, and JuJuan Johnson, I think they will be real competitive for Purdue in the next couple of years. Matt Painter though didn't back up his fine recruiting class this year with anything, as they regressed with a 2 and 3 star recruit.

Now I don't even know anything about Wofford College, so I'll educate you real quick. It was founded in 1854, and is located in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The mascot is the Terrier.

And another thing is they beat Turdue at Turdue. That is the real kicker

Owens to Simpson: STAY AWAY!

It seems like all I have been posting about is the Dallas Cowboys, but this is too good to pass up.

Turns out Terrell Owens is not a fan of Jessica Simpson:

"Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite -- in this locker room or in Texas Stadium."

Are you serious? Lets blame Jessica Simpson for the teams piss poor performance. NOW I HAVE HEARD EVERYTHING!

He continued:
"With everything that has happened, obviously with the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel she has taken his focus away, other than that, she was high on my list until last week."

"Oh, I got a message for her when we make the playoffs. Just stay tuned."

We can't wait to hear what TO has to say, but who knows maybe Romo will be over Jessica and continue down his list of celebrities to bone. We made a list for Mr. Romo:
1. Megan Fox

2. Sienna Miller

3. Ali Larter

Ball State apologizes to Ronny Thompson, and to other stuff as well

The Indianapolis Star reports that Ball State is apologizing to former Men's Basketball Head Coach Ronny Thompson, for "unprofessional behavior" and "isolated incidents of racial hostility."

Whatever happened who cares, Ball State screwed up by hiring John Thompsons kid, that shouldn't come as a shock to any one, They should have never fired Head Coach Tim Buckley, but Ball State isn't done apologizing yet.

They are also sorry for this

And this...from the town of Muncie

Yeah, you have a lot more to apologize for

Pete Rose makes sense, steriods 'making a mockery' of baseball

Let me say this first, I'm a huge Pete Rose fan, and I will always say he should be in the Hall of Fame, no questions asked. Tonight on Dennis Miller's show on Versus, he weighs in about the Mitchell Report and what it means to baseball today.

"I've been suspended 18 years for betting on my own team to win," he added. "I was wrong ... but these guys today, if the allegations are true, they're making a mockery of the game."

I agree with Rose, but and the thing is he knows he did wrong, (although it took him some 15 years to do so) unlike some others who continuously still say they never did steroids. Come on, we're not fools we know people like Bonds, Clemens and etc did steroids. Rose thinks that the steroid users should not be in the Hall of Fame

"If you're going to put these guys that supposedly did steroids into the
Hall of Fame, I mean I've got to get a shot somewhere," he said.

I agree with that statement, it is time for Pete Rose to get his due. The man was an absolute force on the field and who can forget his hustle. I mean he even gave us the term to Pete Rose a girl (slide in head first). This man deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. If Clemens gets in, then put Rose in. If Rose were ever to use steroids, how many hits do you think he would have?

"I would have got 5,000 hits,"

Put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame, he's due

You meant to tell me F$U cheats? I am SHOCKED!

Say it aint so Bobby! The master of integrity Bobby Bowden and his Florida State football team will lose up to 25 players for its Music City Bowl game against Kentucky, due to a scandal involving an online class. Some could even be suspended into next year.

So Florida State breaks the rules? Wow. In other obvious news, Barry Bonds used steroids, the NBA is boring and terrible basketball and no one cares about hockey in the United States.
The academic cheating scandal involved players from various sports, including nearly 25 football players. Evidently, students were receiving answers to a test in an online class before it was taken.
I am personally surprised that such a straight shooter like Bobby Bowden could be behind such a program. He was quoted as saying, ""We have some players not traveling for one reason and some for another, including those who are ineligible for the bowl because of academic issues.
Translation: Dammit, we got caught. Oh well, we will keep trying.
What's next? U$C being caught cheating? That would be the sign of the apocalypse!

I also find it amusing that on Florida State's website, they have to make it a point that football players graduated, like it is such a monumental occurance at that $hithole university.

Robert Vaden is just plain good...Mike Davis is still a dumb ass.

Free Image Hosting at
For those of you IU Basketball fans out there I'm sure you will remember Robert Vaden who played @ IU before transferring in 06 to follow the mule mug to UAB. Well, on Saturday when his new team UAB took on Kentucky he was nothing short of amazing. Vaden put up 28 in the second half to help rally the Blazers from a 12 point half-time deficit to win 79-76. He was 7-11 from beyond the arc which was one shy of the UAB record which Vaden set in the season opener. He ended up with a career high 33 points. If he keeps playing the way he is he may end up C-USA player of the year and could potentially go pro. That is unless, Mike Davis ruins it for him w/ his horrible's the mule mug himself.

I do not miss seeing this dumb ass face every time I watch Indiana Basketball. Thank the lord in heaven he is gone...Here's another clip of him single handidly ruining IU's chances of winning against UK back in 02. Apparently, Davis mocked UK's fans by tapping his hand on his forehead after UAB beat them on saturday...what an idiot.

Vote on the hottest Tim Tebow Babe

Yes when you are the Heisman winner, things are good, how good? Well you can basically take your pick of any chick you wanted. Vote on which Tebow beauty is the hottest, even though we know it will be a onesided affair.... Voting occurs on the right hand side of the page...

1. The Newcomer- Sports by Brooks uncovered this beauty today, and she's hot, a stunning brunette with an amazing body, and a nice perky set of jugs. It also looks like the broad is rather tall as well and keeps in good shape. She's a nice piece of work indeed. Her mom and dad should be proud

2. The Blonde-Not much is known about this girl, except I like blondes myself. She appears to be a plain jane sort of gal, she's obviously beautiful, but nothing that really captures your eye like the previous one, although she is in a two piece. I bet this chick is wild though, WILD.
3. The breasts- Come on who here hasn't seen this picture. They are huge, enormous, exquisite, big, massive, whatever you want to say, and she's not bad looking either. Not much else to say but tits at this point

Kentucky transfer Alex Legion wants to play NAIA schedule

That's the only thing I can think of when reading that Alex Legion, who recently left Kentucky and will transfer, is considering Notre Dame and will visit South Bend on Wednesday.

Mike Brey is a decent coach, but the turtleneck-sporting stooge has put together the worst non-conference schedule I have ever seen. Here is his sked through December:

Long Island-W 82-50
Monmouth-W 76-33 (Virgin Islands Tourney)
Baylor-L 68-64 (Virgin Islands Tourney)
Georgia Tech -L 70-69 (Virgin Islands Tourney)
Youngstown St- W 87-75
Colgate- 94-63 (Crest and Arm & Hammer were not available)
Eastern Michigan- W 76-65
Kansas State- W 68-59
Northern Illinois- W 108-62
San Francisco- Dec 22
Brown- Dec 29
North Florida- Dec 31

What is ND Athletic Director Kevin White thinking allowing this horrid non-conference sked? It's obvious the selection committee in March is frowning more and more upon teams who don't challenge themselves in the first two months of the season.

First of all, there are only two teams on this list that are even in the top 100 college basketball programs in the country, Kansas State and Georgia Tech. Second, other than the tournament in the virgin Islands, every game is a home game, with the exception of Kansas State, which was played at Conseco Fieldhouse, so pretty much a de facto home court advantage for the Irish.

Notre Dame has played just two teams in the top 100 in RPI, which are shockingly, Georgia Tech and Kansas State. Granted, they beat KSU, but Kansas State is clinging to No. 99 in the RPI, and will fall apart in the Big 12 anyway.

Why the shit schedule? Because Mike Brey is on a yearly basis trying to save his job in south bend and this is the only way he can do it, by going 10-2 every year in non-conference so his record looks decent after getting bitch slapped through the Big East conference sked.

So instead of playing for one of the all-time winningest programs in college basketball, who despite going through a rough season will be back in the elite soon enough, he wants to go play for a team that will be one of the last 4 chosen into the NCAA at best this season. Obviously, competing for that coveted fifth place Big East finish is more a focus than SEC titles and Final Four berths he could potentially get at Kentucky.

Whata moron.

Wade the real TO

Welcome back TO, it has been awhile since you last voiced your opinion about getting the ball. Everyone thought you changed, but I knew you would not let yourself down. Owens feels that he is not being used properly; he just wants the damn ball.

He feels the Cowboys best chance of winning is when he gets the ball. You can't argue that when you look at the numbers: five catches for 58 yards and no touchdowns the last two games combined. In the previous seven, he had averaged seven receptions and 123 yards per game and scored 11 touchdowns.

Owens expressed his frustration Monday:

"We got to pay attention to detail, and I'm sure the coaches will see that, I mentioned it to [receivers coach Ray Sherman]. You know it's not a matter of guys doubling and triple-teaming me. I feel like in certain situations, I can outrun coverage."
Maybe you can outrun the coverage, but can you hold on to the ball?

You want the ball? Hell Romo threw 11 balls your way last game and you ended up with only 2 catches for 37 yards and 1 drop. All 3 interceptions were thrown in your direction, granted Romo was off most of the day. So what should Dallas do? Owens has an answer:
"I think it's obvious the last two games, I haven't really moved around, I'm sure we'll go back to the drawing board and game plan and assess it. We all made some mistakes in the game."

Owens is right, they will go back to the drawing board, but it will probably be to run the ball more.

It was only a matter of time before TO came back to earth. Stay tuned for future TO blowups; it is only a matter of time.

Kentucky vs Houston, Billy Clyde going under. 500?

Lets make no mistakes, Kentucky is horrible this year. Tubby would have gotten more out of this team, than Billy Gillispie is right now. The team has a true post presence in Patrick Patterson, and not much else. Even watching them play against IU this year, I wondered who half of these guys were on UK's roster.

The days of Kentucky running and gunning could be over. As tonight they play at Houston, a team that comes into the game 9-1. I think Billy will not win this game, or come close. Kentucky fans no doubt are mad about the way the season has gone.

On Cats Pause, the Rivals based Kentucky board, fans are angry at the way the season has been so far. In fact here are some of the more popular topics:

++++We have to understand Coach G and not criticize just yet++++
I feel very confident about tomorow night!!! (Great spelling on this one)

Seriously, does this team have a shot to make the NCAAs?

NIT Final Four/Championship vs. 1st/2nd Round loss in NCAAs


A Great Coach can not make untalented players talented...

While Kentucky is hurt by injuries with Jodie Meeks and Derrick Jasper out with injuries and Alex Legion leaving the team. This Kentucky team isn't that good, at all.

Gillispie known for being a tireless recruiter should be able to turn them around, no doubt, but this IU fan can now laugh in the face of UK. It's been a while....

Surgeon General Reports: Deep Throating Duke is bad for your health

As a rabid college basketball fan there is nothing like the atmosphere at a true school. When you watch at home you would like someone one with great enthusiasm and detailed analysis of the game at hand and of basketball. Well that is what Dick Vitale was before he became ESPN's #1 sideshow and Duke loving annoying bastard. Now that show will be silenced for a while...

In a letter to fans on, and if any of you have heard Vitale voice sounds like he has had a cold all season, and is rough to say the least. It was determined that Vitale has lesions on his left vocal cord and will need to be removed.

All I can say is aahhhhhh, watching basketball without learning about Duke, Jimmy Pizano's Italian Eatery in the Bronx, the Yankees, Duke, Coach K, the "General" Robert Montgomery Knight, Duke, and other things that never pertain to the game at hand.

I like Vitale, or should say, liked Vitale, I watched a classic rewind of the IU/Kentucky game from 1990 the other week on the Big Ten Network and boy has he changed. It amazed me how resourceful and insightful he was. While he would occasionally go off the mark with a comment here or there, it was mostly based on the game, it made me realize how much I missed the man I grew up hoping he would be announcing the game I wanted to watch.

Though he is still in the eyes of many a great analyst on ESPN, I think not, his schtick has ran it's course, the constant complaining come Selection Sunday, the blow and hand jobs of the Duke Program and whatever else he does to annoy millions of people, will slightly rejoice.

We do wish Dick a healthy recovery, as this does silence one of the former great announcers of the game.

For the love of God, somebody please injure someone on the Patriots

The USA Today has an article up today about New England's quest for a perfect season. While I would certainly strive to go 16-0, is it worth it if players are hurt? That is something I wonder as a Colts fan, do you substitute sitting Manning and company for a half, so you can have them injury free for most of the playoffs. Well apparently the Pats aren't thinking that way.

"I hope I play every snap," said quarterback Tom Brady of remaining games against the Dolphins and Giants. "That's the most exciting part of my job is playing, not practicing. I know that."

I don't understand this at all, I mean really, does Brady want to play in a 49-7 mop up of Miami with less than five minutes in the fourth quarter, and potentially get a broken leg? Then who takes the blame, Brady or the arrogant head coach? Belicheck is probably going to go for the jugular in the next two games, you can be sure of that.

Brady and Moss are out to break single season records. The team as a whole is out to break the single season win records. This would be the final string in shutting everyone up about the whole spygate issue, and proving that in fact they were the best regular season team ever. But if you don't have everyone healthy, and lose in the playoffs, no one will care.

As a Colts season ticket holder I would be infuriated if Manning played every snap in the next two games that mean absolutely NOTHING to the Colts anymore. They wrapped up the bye and the AFC South title. Why continue to play your horses? You think the Patriots would want to do the same thing, but I guess not....

I would love to see them lose, but more importantly if Brady or Moss and etc. are out their playing their asses off in a blowout, I would to see one of them hurt for the rest of the year. I think that would make about 90% of America's Holidays a little brighter.

Hey Tony, time to focus on football

Don't get me wrong, Tony Romo is living every straight males dream. Starting QB of an NFL team? Check. Ink a multi-million dollar contract? Check. Date a celebrity starlet? Check, check and CHECK!

I do not care who Tony Romo dates, but as a Cowboys fan I start to care when it hinders his play on the field. Jessica Simpson and the twins were at Texas Stadium this past Sunday to watch the Cowboys take on the Eagles and boy was it ugly.

Who are we kidding, if any of us could bone a different celebrity each month we would be out living our life just like Romo. Why not take full advantage of becoming a star overnight because you never know when it will all end.

Who can blame him though, she is fucking hot...

But this is crunch time in the NFL and the Cowboys are fighting for home-field throughout the playoffs. Right now they are tied for the best record in the NFC with Green Bay, but hold the tie-breaker because of their head-to-head win.

I think it is time for Romo to stop chasing tail until the season is over. I can't take another moment like last year...........

Michigan continues streak of hiring coaches that can't win a big game.

Michigan as many of you know, hired Rich Rodriguez from West Virginia. I don't really know or care about the specifics of his contract but for those that do, here you go.

Anyways what Michigan got was another guy that will recruit well, get to some high bowl games, and once again will lose to Ohio State, face it, this guy isn't a big game winner.

Skip, why do you say that though, you may ask....we'll lookie here.

2005-Loss to Virginia Tech at home, ruins potential perfect season. End up Big East Champions

2006-Lost to Louisville and South Florida before they were a flash in the pants this year. Won in a high scoring affair in the Gator Bowl

2007-Once again lost to South Florida, and the biggest bow out of the year, lost to Pittsburgh to RUIN their chances at a BCS Title game appearance. I repeat to PITTSBURGH

I mean he was a coach in the Big East, IU could probably reach a Bowl Game in the Big East, who here still thinks Rutgers is a powerhouse? I'm not going to say he'll make Michigan worse, but I think Michigan struck out with not getting the name they wanted in Miles.

Time will only tell if Rodriguez is the man in Ann Arbor, with his spread offense. But the thing is, most Big 10 defenses are used to seeing a type of this offense, it won't come as a shock to anyone.

This is Trip...

I got nothing to say.

So here, for your beginning of the week enjoyment

That's British model Lucy Pinder, and she has enormous breasts.

"300" Press Conference Trailer

So, I'm new to this whole blogging thing. Just came on board today...thought I would start my blogging off w/ a hilarious video featuring some of the best press conferences set to the trailer for the movie "300." Enjoy!

You don't want Bob Sanders to hit you, seriously...

Or any of the Colts "Hit Squad" who have been laying some pretty big hits on opponents this year. Everyone knows about Bob Sanders who plays with reckless fear, despite only being 5'8". A slew of injuries has hampered Sanders in the past, but (cross my fingers) he has been healthy all this year. Bob Sanders makes up for the size in the way he hits his opponents.

The Colts secondary has improved greatly with their speed being a big asset to them. The Colts D which would roll over from the start, has actually been more of a catalyst for them this year. It all starts with the Colts secondary.

While Booger McFarland was injured before the season started, and Dwight Freeney was lost during the year, the Colts survived, also losing LB Rob Morris for the year and Freddy Keiaho for a time. The secondary has came through, but the secondary isn't putting up impressive numbers.

It's totally a Dungy group," Colts president Bill Polian said. "You won't find many people around the league who would rank these guys, except for Bob, real high in the pecking order because they don't have off-the-chart numbers and they're not spectacular in the way they play. They're not, quote, 'shut-down corners,' or any of that stuff.

"But in terms of the way we play and what we ask them to do, they're by far the best group we've had in the 10 years I've been here."

Just as many of you know Bob Sanders hits hard, how hard...

Thirteen Buckeyes to enter draft early, but why is Todd Boeckman?

We understand that some players should jump to go pro early, in Ohio State's case thirteen of them understood the need to. While linebackers James Laurinaitis and Marcus Freeman should have no problem getting their name called, and some other Buckeyes as well, what is Todd Boeckman thinking?

I've watched Ohio State enough this year to know, that in my estimation Boeckman is a tad bit overrated. Most games I saw the offense was Chris "Beanie" Wells oriented and basically he never once threw for over 300 yards in a game.

Not that Boeckman can't make in the NFL, not saying that at all, but with Brennan, Brohm, and others coming out this year, no team will smell Boeckman in the first three plus rounds of the draft.

I understand also the need to get noticed, well you're going to be in the title game displaying yourself on the big stage, and if you have a JaMarcus Russell type game, that will do quite a bit for you, but I think it will be the Beanie Wells show along with the stout OSU defense this year.

Boeckman throwing his name in right now is laughable, he needs to come back. Then head to the show. But Tebow will be better than him anyways next year.

He didn't make the shot, but I see a future as QB

Check out this video I stumbled on to, this is undoubtedly highly rare

That's great

This fictional group of five would beat anyone in a game of basketball

I've been pondering, there have been many movies/TV shows that have basketball as a premise or major part of the movie. While some are gimmes the rest are guys I would want on my teams

PG: Scott Howard/Teen Wolf

There is no doubt in my mind he is the consumate point guard on the floor. And when he turns into the wolf, he's better than Jordan. While teammates can get angered at him, he found a way to keep his cool, play without the wolf and win the state championship. He was also coached very well it seems too. Here is some video we found from Rivals

SG: Prince, Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota

According to Charlie Murphy, the guy is a gamer. We uncovered some video of the real "Purple Jesus" and the dude can ball, an ideal scoring guard.

PF: Will Smith, Bel-Air Academy

The game changing power forward your team needs. Attended prep school to hone his skills and grades, moved from Philadelphia, and it basically worked. The "Fresh Prince" as he is called is athletic and can do everything on the court, a future lottery pick?

WF: Jimmy, parts unknown

Jimmy has a strength training regement that is unknown to most. Jimmy can jump, run, dunk and shoot. Jimmy is also a shrewd marketer as well, promoting himself quite a bit

SF: Jimmy Chitwood, Hickory High School, Indiana

This guy wants the ball at the end of the game. If this doesn't give you chills, I don't know what will

Hoosiers clip

The Head Coach

There you go, I think it's a formidable starting line up. I dare anyone to find anything better than this all star crew

Mitchell Report Part 4: Yankees coach turns in Bear, Bad News ahead

The Mitchell Report that came out today and had a surprising name on the list, but his opposing teams coach wasn't surprised at all.

Yankees Coach Roy Turner turned in the Bears player Kelly Leak, the Harley driving best athlete in the area in for supposed HGH use. Turner a old time coach, said if that was my kid, I would have slapped him.

Leak is stunned by the accusations, so is coach Buttermaker, who took time out of his day of drinking and cleaning pools to console his player. Says no doubt he will be back in the lineup, drinking beer and whiskey. Other players such as Lupas, Engleberg and Tanner, all are shocked, but will stand by Leak, despite his known tenacity for hogging the ball.
Bears and Yankees are scheduled to meet in the Title game

Mitchell Report Findings, Part 3: Shoeless Joe GUILTY


Come on people, you think a guy that didnt play a minute of professional baseball from 1920 to 1989 could really come back and play that well?

I bet you are the same folks that came crawling back to MLB when Roid Brothers Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire were sending baseballs into the stratosphere, then hugging semi-homoish after McGwire broke the record.

Shoeless Joe was definitely using. Who supplied him? Why Dr. Archibald Graham of course. He had the means and the opportunity. That wily old man was loaded with performance enhancing drugs in his little bag

Mitchell: McGriff comes clean, turns in Emanski

Not only did big names such as Miguel Tejada, Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte come out of Thursday's release of George Mitchell's report on steroids, several suppliers were named as well.

It was quite a shock to discover that Tom Emanski, the man who has revolutionized baseball for youngsters for years, was implicated.

Those BACK-to-BACK-to-BACK AAU National Championships, the 1987 endorsement from Fred McGriff that is still being shown today, countless paid programs. It's all a farce, as Emanski has been injecting kids with HGH and roids for years.

It's sad but true. You will never be able to watch this amazing commercial with the same viewpoints again...

NDub is probably boning this

In defense of my good friend SkinDog, who is no longer a Construda Blogger.

Put one and one together folks

George Mitchell's report has some big names

Including this young man. You know him as Henry Rowengartner, but George Mitchell, and now all of America, nows him as a CHEATER.

Come on, you didnt think he was really throwing that fast because he fell on his arm weird, did you?
I am sure the Cubs supplied the HGH and 'roids to him also.

We have a copy of the list

No, not that list, but Sports Blog Journal lists the top blogs in America and our former blog Construda was tops of the list.

The Sports Blog Journal cites:

Misinformation, misinformation, misinformation. Rampant rumors that never materialized, boring, unintellectual writing, and gobs of non-sports issues make this blog #1 stinker in America, don't waste your time reading this, it's better to go to Fox News to get your info.

Haha this is great, I hope they shut down

Thad Matta is in a lot of pain, and not due to his teams record.

The Columbus Dispatch has a good article up on the back injury Thad Matta has had to deal with. Anyone that has had back pain knows how debilitating it can be. Basically all you want to do is rest and fuck, well maybe not the latter so much.

The pain is so bad that Matta basically has to drag his right foot when he walks, here is a quick synopsis of everything that has gone wrong with Matta.

-Ruptured disk, which led to surgery on June 14th. Right leg had problems there after.

-Second surgery to help repair right leg problems

-Between the operations Matta "Matta rolled his right ankle and his foot turned black. He had a myelogram, a procedure in which dye is injected into the spine to get a better view, be it by X-ray or CT scan. The myelogram showed that Matta had a choked nerve in his spine, which was causing the numbness in his right foot."

Basically the two nerves in Matta's foot gave out, one from a surgery when he was a kid, the second with the surgeries. Basically Matta has no nerve in his foot left, and they grow around an inch per month, but " In Matta's case, he needs a nerve to grow from his spine down to his calf and shin to regain function in his right foot -- and he's 6 feet 4. Given the rate of nerve growth, and his height, it could take two years."

I couldn't imagine that at all, yet it doesn't slow the man down at all. It must be nice to only have to concentrate on Sophomores and Freshman in high school for recruiting, what a luxury. But we wish Thad a speedy recovery.

Mitchell Report released today, will anyone care come March?

I remember as a kid playing baseball almost every single day, I would watch the Cubs because that was all I could get on TV at the time, even though I am/was a Reds Fan. I would play every summer probably like most kids did in the 80's.

Then something happened, the strike. I basically lost most interest in baseball if I hadn't already. I became fascinated with basketball, both college and NBA.

Then I watched Ripken and McGwire, started to gain interest back in the game, then lost it again, and now gained it back. I was pissed off that players helped themselves to gain an advantage in baseball.

You know what, when the Mitchell Report is released, it will shock some, maybe a lot of people, but I won't care. I'm basically sick of the steroid talk and scandal.

That's all major media outlets talk about, it's overkill. If you want to solve the problem ban them for life, get rid of the abusers. This society has became a haven for pussies, where is the tough love at? We need to take back the country and the sport that is OUR American past time.

Bud Selig no doubt has done nothing in my mind to make him a great commissioner. The All-Star flops, the no salary cap, moving the Brewers to the NL. I could go on and on. One thing for sure should be certain, when this report gets released all names should be banned for life, no questions about it. Get rid of them, make them pay back their salary to charities, maybe that would curb the abuse by players.

I'll read the list, look for Reds players, shrug my shoulders and go about my day. Come March and April when the NCAA tournaments winds down, I'll still be watching Fox Sports Cincinnati, steroid abusers or not

Sad day, our favorite abuser Ike Turner is dead.

Joe Davola is mourning the loss of Ike Turner, former funk pioneer turned bad ass died yesterday in his home he was 76.

Not only was Ike a wife beater and drug abuser, but was a bad ass musician as well. Most of the stuff today on the r&b side and some music in the 70's was helped by Ike.

Too bad that bitch Tina Turner got in his way a couple of times.

And it starts now, Illini gain with Alex Legion?

The other day we blogged on how the Illinois Fighting Illini were about to get a major recruiting boost, and well is it paying dividends already? The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that is he or isn't he Kentucky guard Alex Legion could be transferring to the Illini.

Now it isn't said that the so called mystery man in Worldwide Wes is involved, but an Illini assistant, Jerrance Howard is said to be the main guy because he,"enjoyed a close relationship with Legion when Howard worked for Gillispie on Kentucky’s basketball operations staff, a source said"

This will technically be the third Division I school involved with Alex Legion, he verballed and signed with Michigan and was granted a release when Tommy Amaker was let go, then surfaced at Kentucky and will likely land possibly at Illinois.

There could be a stop in this though from a previous mess in which Billy Clyde hired from Illinois assistant Tracy Webster to secure a verbal from Kentucky point guard Darius Miller, a top 50 recruit. Billy hired Webster to basically secure the deal with Miller. There is talk that possibly Billy would block the transfer.

I really hate Bruce and the Illini, makes me almost feel bad for Kentucky....ALMOST.

Where have you been all season?

Is it a surprise to anyone that after T.O. had his worst game of the season he finally runs his mouth? All the media has been on him and the fantastic season he has been having, but he can't handle the spotlight being taken off him for one game. Jason Witten has a career game and T.O. catches just 3 balls for 21 yards in a win against the Lions.

Last weekend former Dallas Cowboys receiver Keyshawn Johnson, now an analyst on ESPN's "Sunday NFL Countdown said he believed former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells deserves credit for the Cowboys 12-1 record. Keyahwan went on to say that Owens needs to stop picking on Bill and his old coaching staff.

Keyshawn loves Bill, so him standing up for Parcells is not surprising. What is surprising is Keyshawn trying to tell someone how to act....Is this not the same guy who wrote a book called, Just Give Me the Damn Ball!

Owens felt like responding to what Keyshawn had to say:

"I challenge him to come down here and take my job. ESPN producers, let him go. I'm probably the reason he's in the booth now. He's going to be a hater and throw me under the bus because he has to defend Bill. He won a Super Bowl and all, but you'd have to check the roster to know he was even on the team."

I thought to myself, Keyshawn won a Super Bowl? Turns out I did have to check the roster.

Owens continued:
"We came out in the same year. He was a first-rounder and I was a third. Go compare our stats. He couldn't come down here now and be a third or fourth receiver on this team. Just compare our stats. It's not a matter of me giving or not giving Bill credit, everybody wants to make a big deal, that this is the team he built. It doesn't matter. ... My thing is give credit to Wade. The difference between Wade and Parcells is this: Parcells, he didn't use me as a playmaker; Wade, he got the staff, and that's what I'm being used as. Plain and simple, without trying to be negative or anything. I'm being used as a playmaker, and as I said, the proof is in the pudding."

Yes, Bill Parcells may have "shopped for the groceries" but Wade Phillips is "cooking the meal."

Here is what the Jets should do.

It just keeps going, and going, and going. The spygate stuff won't quit anytime soon with the Jets and Patriots playing this weekend and now complaints that the Jets last year taped the Pats.

Now there probably isn't a shot in hell the Jets are going to win this game, everyone knows this, but the Jets can make this interesting nevertheless.

It's still assumed relations are frosty with both of the coaches and franchises, and what would hurt the Patriots the most, take out their players.

While this would never happen, it's one and maybe the only way the Jets can get even. You feel slighted, abused that the Patriots did this, and what better way to get back at them is to end any chance of a Super Bowl victory for them.

Imagine seeing Brady get his knee broken, or Moss tearing an ACL, or something else bad happening after the Jets hit them hard and celebrate. The fans in New England would revolt, the rest of the NFL would laugh and celebrate.

It's time for the Jets to get revenge, they don't have the tools to match up with the Patriots, instead they need to level the playing field and that means putting a licking on some of their key players.

Isiah Thomas is a funny guy

New York Knicks coach/sexual harasser/shrewd businessman/people person Isiah Thomas, is golden at comedy. The thing is, he doesn't probably know it!

The troubles of Isiah are well documented, but now fans are taking it out on them and according to coach it's causing the players performance to stink. From the New York Post, and according to longtime season ticket holder Mara Altschuler, Thomas lectured the fans right behind the bench.

According to Altschuler, Thomas said, "We're missing layups because you're booing."

According to Altschuler, Thomas invoked the phrase "Sixth Man," explaining what a crowd should be. Thomas mentioned Indiana and North Carolina as crowds that the Garden should emulate, she said.

It continues even in this comedic gem;

She said Thomas blamed a Quentin Richardson airball on the boos. Thomas could be seen by reporters in the third quarter exchanging words with fans, and did not deny it later.

Now as an IU fan, this pains me, because Thomas was our best player ambassador in the NBA, and I really don't like to think of him as part of the family anymore.

Could the Knicks be intentionally tanking the season to get rid of Isiah? Lets face it, he brought down the Pacers franchise before Bird smartly fired him. The Knicks should do the same.

I don't watch the NBA, and rarely follow it, but there is no denying that the Knicks need a change at the helm.

Get in the pants of your favorite Boston Red Sox

This is for our friend Earl and the many Boston Red Sox fans like him.

Not sure what to get for that Red Sox obsessed fan on your christmas list. Well we have found the perfect gift for any member of Red Sox Nation.......wait for it..........MANNY RAMIREZ GAME-USED UNDERWEAR.

Stalker....I mean collector,Phil Castinetti, has somehow gotten his hands on a collection of All-Star undies and he’s selling them on eBay. Jason Varitek’s game-used spandex went fo $255. Matt Clement’s Spandex sold for $430!

Other items include Manny's game-used Do-Rag, Kevin Youkilis game-used Spandex, and Hideki Okajima game-used Spandex, along with others.

So how did they get these items? Well rumor has it that at the end of the season, the Sox throw the stuff out and some dumpster-diving Fenway employees retrieved it.

Enjoy you freaks of Red Sox Nation!

Moron Cubs ready to shell out buttload of cash on Fukudome

It was announced late last night that Kosuke Fukudome, the latest Japanese sensation to take his shots in the MLB, will sign with a major league team to play next season. Interested teams include the Padres, Cubs and the White Sox.

Rumblings on Chicago sports radio have the Cubs way in front of every other team as far as the amount of cash they are willing to throw at the 30 year-old outfielder who has a career 192 homers and a .305 batting average over nine seasons with the Chunichi Dragons, which has some great information on its official website. The Cubs are ready to toss 6o million at this guy, allegedly fully 10 million or more than any other team.The Dragons recently won the Japan Series, which makes Fukudome disqualified for playing for the Lovable Losers because he has won something in professional baseball.

That sounds amazing if you hate the Cubs. Sure Fukudome, who White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen called, "a cross between Ichiro and one from the New York Yankees, (Hideki) Matsui," is going to be a solid MLB player, no one that has made the jump from the Pacific that was hyped up any has really stunk, except maybe for Kaz Matsui. But the price is just off the wall. Go ahead and pay it Cubs, you will have no cash to add payroll in late summer if you are in the playoff picture. And wouldnt two mid-level free agents that play the outfield (such as Geoff Jenkins or Aaron Rowand) be a better investment, particularly since you dopes are up for sale?

Oh well, go ahead and spend it Cubbies, I for one love watching you fail.

Vote on College Basketballs best freshman!

While freshman seem to be certainly shaping up the landscape of College Basketball this year, which one is truly the best? There can be an arguments for each of the five on the list, and others that did not make the list because of a dislike or we just don't think they're in the same level as the following five.

1. Eric Gordon, Indiana University

The 6'4" 215 pound freshman is the best thing to come to IU since Isiah Thomas. He is not a prototypical guard, but one with muscle. IU's Final Four dreams hinge on Gordon this year. Averaging 24.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg and shooting 53.4 % from the field.

2. Kevin Love, UCLA

The 6'10" 260 pound center looks to be the final piece in building a UCLA championship squad. Love has amazing hands for a big guy, great inside/outside touch and has a big body for rebounding. It's no doubt that I like UCLA to win this year for a reason. Love averages 16.7 ppg and 10.1 rpg.

3. Michael Beasley, Kansas State

Beasley has the most gaudy numbers of all the freshman, but he's a man beast. The 6'10" 235 pound man child is pretty strong for his age, and we think he's got the #1 secured thus far in the draft. Beasley is putting up 25.0 ppg and 14.3 rpg

4. Derrick Rose, Memphis

The heady, quick point guard could also be Memphis' missing piece to make it finally to the Final Four this year. Rose is a bigger point guard, and that helps him out tremendously on the court and fits in well with Calapari's style. Rose averages 15.9 ppg, 4.29 apg and 5.7 rpg

5. Ricky Roe, Western University

This big time recruit from French Lick, Indiana had all the coaches drooling over him, but chose to play for Pete Bell and Western University. There are rumblings about the program being corrupt and cash payments and tractors being funded to Roe and family

One of my favorite blogs is back up

The former Big *1*0* Tailgate website has moved, and I really enjoyed reading a lot of their stuff since frankly I live in the middle of Big 10 country. The website was facing legal challenges from the suits at the Big Ten conference on copyright infringements on their name.

All of this for a measly blog? Why can't thousands of people get the Big Ten Network, and you want to shut down a blog? I remember seeing the video of the Penn State frat douchebags pelting an Ohio State fan on their and I've been hooked since.

The new site is Busted Coverage, and is one of my favorites because it has humor, Big 10 sports, and lovely ladies.

You can go their to read all about the Big 10's frivolous crap, and be treated in which should be a regular read in your blog roll

Purdue Recruiting Video

Purdue men's basketball coach Matt Painter needed something to lure recruits into West Lafayette, since it's basically part of the armpit of Indiana. We stumbled upon how he is luring in recruits to West Lafayette with fake promises of playing with females.

What a liar Painter is, showing a girl playing with men on a basketball court. Lord knows that will never happen.

Davola's Guide to Christmas

We know jewelry can be expensive. But for your girlfriend, wife or hot secretary at work, here is something that is both affordable and looks damn good. Hey...they work.

I just ordered 400 of them

Music for Tim Tebow's Busty Gal

You've all seen the picture, and lord knows I can't get enough of these melons, but HOLY CRAP they're big!

We don't know anything about this girl, except when Tebow goes to bed he hides the Heisman between those breasts. She is a fox to say the least, and a snazzy dresser.

When she probably walks into a room, music has to be blaring this song, it's fitting and appropriate for this fox and what Tim Tebow does to her.

T-T-T-T-T Titties!

Reggie Bush sidelined, fans don't care, advertisers do.

Former sure thing USC tailback Reggie Bush who had more deals before he was even playing in the NFL than most, will be sidelined for the rest of the year. While fans really don't care about the abysmal running back for New Orleans, advertisers that ponied up major cash for this bust right now certainly do.

I mean Bush may have more of a roster than Peyton Manning, look at what we found he endorses:

EA Sports
Diet Pepsi
St. Jude Hospital
NFL Network Spots

Well it may not be that many, but it seems his mug is everywhere and the thing is, what has he done in the NFL to deserve this??

I mean I can cut him on doing a charity spot for St. Jude's, I used to take part in their Math-a-thon to raise money as well, but he's everywhere for no good reason.

Not to say Bush can't be stellar in the NFL, but in year two while first year RB Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch are tearing up the league and Lendale White, Joesph Addai, and Laurence Maroney, amongst others all doing better than Bush thus far.

Next player to probably get these kinds of endorsements is Tim Tebow, he'll probably endorse bras or something cool like that

Some people just aren't very bright

An Indiana newspaper that we are familiar with has a section in the paper called "The Rant," where people write in about their petty problems like traffic, snow and leaf removal and our favorite, Daylight Savings Time. Like it is so damn hard to change your clocks twice a year.

Skip and I get bored during the day sometimes, and we send some rants in. Most are legit, but some are not, for instance, this one...

"A big thank you to the man in the West State Plaza parking lot who ran over my foot while I was loading groceries, then drove away laughing while listening to “No Can Do” by Hall and Oates."

For everyone's information, I made that up. What can I say, I love Hall and Oates. Who knows if whoever put this in is just dumb or saw it as amusing and had to run it. Either way its hilarious.

Here is the video, in honor of such a dynamic duo.
