One Of Mel’s Passions

leave a comment »

So Mel Gibson has “allegedly” shown (or should I say bellowed?) his true colors as being an anti-Semite. Now I like this guy even more. With the media criticism of his “Passion of the Christ,” how can you not blame Gibson for thinking there’s a Jew conspiracy out to get him? I bet his bartender’s name ended in “-stein” and phoned his buddy (collect of course) at the Los Angeles Times once he saw Mel’s state of intoxication after last call was announced. OK, now this made me laugh.

Mel Gibson’s planned mini-series about the Holocaust may be axed by ABC after his alleged drunken anti-Semitic outburst at a Los Angeles police officer. An intoxicated Gibson reportedly launched a verbal attack on sheriff’s deputy James Mee after he was pulled over for drunk driving on Friday near his home in Malibu, California.

Pirates Trading Deadline Activity

leave a comment »

I heard this morning that the Pirates have shipped off Sean Casey to the Tigers earlier today. What’s hilarious about this is that when Casey, a hometown boy, signed with the Pirates this past off-season, it was being billed as a sign of things to come with this losing franchise. Oh it was a sign all right. A sign that the tradition of finishing in last place is still going strong. God I love this team. On the bright side, Casey is now going to a former Shittsburgh manager that was at least able to get his team into the postseason. Oh, and speaking of the Tigers, I had been expecting them to fold sometime this season, but after their recent performances against White Sox and Twins I now think they’re a legit playoff team. Of course, having said this I’m sure they will proceed to lose their next 20 games.

The local media has reported over the past few days that the Pirates were going to make some trades. They weren’t kidding. As I was watching ESPN this afternoon I was reading the bottom-screen headlines and it seemed Shittsburgh deserved its own little section. First I saw they traded Oliver Perez and Roberto Hernandez to the Mets. Then they traded infielder/outfielder Craig Wilson to the Yankees. Then they traded pitcher Kip Wells to the Rangers (yeah, that’ll improve the Texas rotation). Now my question is if these teams are all in the postseason chase, then why in the hell do they want players from this franchise? It’s not like a team gets to be 40-66 overnight. It takes persistence and effort, baby.

Trade In The Hyperbole

leave a comment »

I talked yesterday about one thing that I didn’t care for regarding professional football, and today it is Major League Baseball’s turn.

The trading deadline expired a little while ago, and this is the time of year when contending teams try to find that one extra pitcher or slugger to put them over the top. On the flip side of this coin are losing teams looking to unload soon-to-be free agents they can’t afford to retain in hopes of getting some worthwhile prospects. I get how this game is played. If you’re the Yankees, you don’t want to give up whatever good young players your minor league system still has. If you’re the Phillies, you want to ship off someone you won’t be able to re-sign in the off-season and get the best deal possible in return. Trying to get something for nothing is the American way. However, can we please lay off the theatrics of teams absolutely refusing to hand away a particular prospect? For weeks I’ve heard the Yankees say proclaim they will ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY REFUSE to give up some can’t-miss minor-leaguer they have in their system. I don’t know who this guy is, nor do I care. All I know is that the guy’s a pitcher and the Yankees won’t part with him no matter what the circumstances. Well, it looks like they got Bobby Abreu in return for some minor-leaguers that were not on their “untouchable” list. I’m sure Al Keiper or Bored knows who these people are and can give you some win-share figures of each player’s time in A, AA and AAA ball. Quit the public theatrics and get the deal done in private.

No Pat-On-The-Back For The ACLU

leave a comment »

I was watching the Sports Reporters this morning and Mitch Album talked about this judge who ruled pat-downs at football games unconstitutional. He was right.

Holy shit is this Gordon Johnston a fucking douche, and what a shock, the Atheists and Criminals/Communists Love Us organization helped him in this lawsuit:

A federal judge in Florida has ruled that pat-down searches of fans entering Raymond James Stadium in Tampa are unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge James Whittemore agreed with a state judge who issued an injunction against the searches, the Tampa Tribune reported. The ruling means that the stadium will be the only one without pat-down searches before NFL games.

Gordon Johnston, a civics teacher at Tampa Bay Technical High School, brought the suit against the Tampa Sports Authority with legal help from the American Civil Liberties Union.

“I’ve said again and again that, in teaching the Constitution, I felt this was a violation,” Johnston said.

Whittemore said that a terrorist attack on the stadium during a Buccaneers’ game would be terrible. But he said that in the absence of a specific threat or suspicion of those being searched, universal pat-downs are too broad a response.

Hey bitch boy, you’re not getting stripped searched. You’re not having your anus probed in search of weapons of mass destruction. You’re getting a pat-down before entering a stadium filled with more than 50,000 other football fans. Get over it you bitch-ass faggot. I loved his last line about in the “absence of a specific threat or suspicion of those being searched universal pat-downs are too broad a response.” So you want only to pat-down people who look suspicious — well who are you going to deem worth of such suspicion? I bet the instant anyone gets a “suspected” pat-down you’ll come down from your ivory tower, U.S. Constitution in hand, and then get the ACLU to sue on behalf of Adbul because his pat-down was RACIST. And of course should a hidden bomb explode at a Bucs home game, Johnston will probably be one of the first armchair quarterbacks bitching about how stadium security didn’t do everything they could to prevent the blast from happening. I have to wonder if the government school Gordon teaches at has any metal detectors/search procedures. Hopefully this school does, and another commie judge rules these search methods unconstitutional, only then to have a student put a few bullets into Johnston’s skull, further turning his brain into mush.

Bush Signs … And Life Can Continue

leave a comment »

Well now the media can settle down with their “OMG REGGIE BUSH MAY SIT OUT THE ENTIRE YEAR” hysteria. The guy signed on the dotted line with the New Orleans Saints and is supposed to report to training camp today. I can’t stand the “Will this rookie holdout sit the entire season?” stories that usually spring up about this time every year. What made this season’s batch especially annoying was that Bush is supposed to put the city of New Orleans on his back and bring this place back to prominence, or at least back to having college white girls take their shirts off in exchange for some beads. What really pissed me off was the notion that Bush “promised” to sign a contract early and then didn’t. For a football player, who may be one play away from a career-ending injury, I don’t blame these people one bit for trying to get as much money as they can. The only thing I disagreed with Bush on in this situation was the “I should be paid like I was the overall top pick” talk. You weren’t drafted first – get over it. Otherwise, I say get your money now, put your financial house in order, and then concentrate on your craft.

This Criminal Had No Shot At Success

leave a comment »

It’s a shame this guy lived, because he would be an excellent candidate for one of those “too stupid to live” awards. Trying to start shit in a gun store with a machete is like a WAP bringing a knife to a gunfight.

Police were today questioning the director of an Auckland gun shop where a man wielding a machete was shot this morning.

The shooting happened at SAI Guns and Ammo in Penrose at about 10am. A 19-year-old man entered the shop at 553 Great South Road, on the corner with Walls Road, carrying the machete.

One of the people inside shot him in the stomach with a handgun. This is understood to be a director of the shop, aged 33. He was being interviewed this afternoon but has not been arrested.

A Dopey Sport

leave a comment »

So was our new American cycling hero doping it up when beating the rest of the world in a sport that our country doesn’t follow?

Tour de France champion Floyd Landis’ results on a urine test that spots elevated levels of performance-enhancing testosterone are a mystery and “don’t add up,” a leading doping expert said Thursday.

Landis’ team revealed Thursday that his urine sample last week showed “an unusual level of testosterone/epitestosterone.”

Who knows and who cares.

I didn’t get caught up in all the Floyd Landis hype when he was on the bike, and I’m not going to pay attention to the aftermath. When it came to the last seven Tour de Frances, I didn’t follow one second of them. Toward the end of each race, I’d check to see if Lance Armstrong was going to win, and when I would learn that he’d come in first (again) I’d say “cool” and go back to my existence. I think cycling is a sport, unlike Jason Whitlock of ESPN/Kansas City Star fame, and I think Armstrong’s story is an amazing one. I just don’t care about cycling. However, I do care about pissing off the rest of the world, particularly the French, which is why I don’t goof on this event … much.
