I am fortunate enough to only be able to listen to the Bulls games lately. Because if I had to watch this I may puke. The ONLY bright spot is Derrick Rose, I wish Tyrus Thomas would come around. We need to get rid of Gordon, Noah and Gooden now! I am almost thankful that the games have not been televised by my cable provider

On the college football front my Alma mater, Purdue, is not doing very well this year. My current institution, Iowa State University seems to have gotten their wins out of the way early this year anyway I give you Milli Vanilli because you have to blame it on something, blame it on the rain!

I hate to say this but people in this country were not going to be happy until OJ Simpson was is jail. It has been thirteen years since his acquittal on double murder charges and ever since then the target has been on his back. I am surprised he in not on death row for J walking or a parking meter violation. Only in America can you be found not guilty of murder and then have the bereaved family sue you for monetary damages for the wrongful death of the people involved. There is a special place in hell for people like Fred Goldman and his family. No matter what happens to OJ he will always be one of the great running backs in football history; that is unless Fred Goldman sues the NFL to have this taken away from him too.

Second thank you to the Sox now go out and win another game today!
Third I guess I should have had more faith in the Bears, Kyle went out there and aired it out against the Lions. We will see how they do against the Vikings.

This weeks song is Summertime by Will Smith. The last couple of nights I've been watching VH-1's 100 best Hip Hop songs; some of this has made me feel old. So much for the nostalgia on to other things
1. The Cubs are through. You can tell they are beaten. So much for Jim Belushi making an ass out of himself at the rally.
2. The Sox still have a chance today and I believe they will come home to Sweet Home Chicago even at one.
3. Tonight TDizzle has to go and watch the oldest dizzette march with the high school band. I really feel sorry for band members who have to show all of this fake school spirit.
4. I am picking the Bears by seven this week over the Lions.

Beat the freakin Twins tonight! I know I've not always had the most confidence in you this year but please, Ozzie please keep Junior out of the lineup. This is the game of your life John Danks go out there and give it to them! Then on to Tampa to dispense with the Rays!

I need to find another song lyric to express myself but damn White Sox! I really think if they miss the playoffs Ozzie will be gone and that is a shame. He needed help at the trade deadline and who do we get? The ghost of Ken Griffey jr sad. At least the Cubs will be in the playoffs next week.

I was really surprised by the outcome of this game. Peyton Manning was definitely off this week and I'll hand it to the Bears they looked pretty good. I refuse to go as far and say this made up for the Super Bowl, that is idiotic the goal of every season it to win the Super Bowl. This week we go up against the Carolina Panthers, Steve Smith is out serving a suspension which is good because he torched us in the 2005 Playoffs. I am going to go with the Bears by 7.
On to baseball; the Cubs are in a slump. Harden looked good last night however I am wondering how much confidence Lou has in the bullpen. However even with the Cubs losing the Brewers are not helping themselves. I believe that after the Houston series the Cubs host the Brewers so it could get interesting. The Sox need to get it in gear, they have a couple of big series coming up and Contreras is still on the shelf, Konerko is down, Quentin is down too and the Twins are not going away. I hate to say it but the south siders luck may have run out
Friday, September 5, 2008
This Sunday night on national TV the Bears open up against their Super Bowl rival the Indianapolis Colts! I have not seen a ton of the Bears in the preseason but what I did see I was happy with. However they are going up against Peyton Manning, who happens to be my oldest daughters favorite player and team. So much so that our puppy is named after him. The Colts are also her Madden team as well when we play. I hope that the Bears come out run the ball, protect Orton so he has time to let the play develop and make some plays. I am tired of hearing about Kyle Orton the game manager, when he was at our fair alma mater he was more of a gunslinger. I want to see him go out and spread the field, at least until Manning hits the field and destroys our defense. I hate to do this but my pick is Indianapolis by 14.
Wednesday, September 3, 2008
Is it time to worry? They've dropped four and Big Z is going to see the doctor today. This makes you wonder about his health for the playoffs not to mention that Rich Harden has been pushed back a start. What does this do for your World Series aspirations? Right now the Brewers lead the wild card and Arizona leads the NL West, do you want to face the D-Backs is a short series? Remember last year? Brandon Webb, Dan Haren and Randy Johnson could be hell in the three of five especially since the Cubs have never beat Johnson.
Now Sox fans you are not exempt from criticism here. All Star third baseman Joe Crede had to leave the game and your MVP candidate Carlos Quentin is sitting with a sore forearm and believe it or not Junior has a sore back! We need to win these games because the Twins are on a hell of a road trip that could make or break them. Wake up and play!

I was pleasantly surprised by my fellow Boilermaker last night. Orton completed 10 of 17 last night for 147 yards and no interceptions. He seemed composed in the pocket and very comfortable with Rashied Davis whom he hit for two touchdown passes. On the flip side the defense was less than stellar. They missed too many tackles which allowed San Francisco to march up and down the field with impunity. Normally the defense of this team is what carries them but last night they were better offensively. Now to special teams, Daniel Manning looked awesome returning kicks last night. This is important because teams are going to go out of their way to avoid kicking to Devan Hester. But Manning gave them the short field to operate on as well. I am not so worried about the Browns next week I am more concerned about week one vs. Indy
Tuesday, August 19, 2008
The White Sox are a game up on the Twins! The Twins got to Anaheim to face the Angels later this week and then they will have another road trip while the Republican Convention is in Minneapolis so hopefully this will be the beginning of the end for them.
The Bears have named Kyle Orton as their starting QB. As a Purdue Alumnus I feel like I should back Orton but I think he is going to get killed behind this revolving door of an offensive line. No quarterback will thrive under those conditions.

I was relieved to read that the sides came to terms on this contract, I think that he will be a much better player this year with the contract behind him. I hope he can become the slashing wingman we've hoped for. Does he have potential to become an all-star? I think so but remember who else plays in the Eastern Conference you have LeBron, and Paul Pierce, Tayshun Prince to name a few who will garner more all-star support than Deng unless he begins to produce. Where does this leave Ben Gordon? I think that Gordon is a good sixth man but he believes he is a starter and should be the highest paid player on this team. I am hoping that they don't let him go for nothing but unless they can work a sign and trade to someone in the market for an undersized shooting guard who does not play defense. Somehow I don't see that happening.
Tuesday, July 29, 2008
It's only one loss to the Twins we can get off the ledge. The Twins will not be there at the end of the year. That being said our bats need to wake up and we need to take care of business in Minneapolis and put some distance between us the Twins and the Tigers. Go Sox

In his article today in the Chicago Sun Times summed it up perfectly! I especially like the comment about Soriano and Fukodome belonging there to sell hot dogs. I grew up in the Chicagoland area and the Cubs have always ruled the baseball scene. I still don't believe this is their year to end a century of futility and the Sox are three years removed from a World Series victory. I hope there is a World Series trophy raised in Chicago this year... on the South Side!

The Iowa Chops are getting ready to hit the ice this fall! I did not realize the Stars had left and we were getting a new franchise. On the news the assistant general manager said they wanted something that reflected Iowa culture, I wondered why they did not choose a portly women dressed in clothes that are three years out of style and the ankle exposed tattoo. After further searching on the web I saw there is an organization called C.H.O.P.S which stands for Changing Homosexuals into Ordinary People. Way to go Iowa!

Chicago Cubs fans are excited about this trade for Rich Harden, and they did not give up much to get him. The combination of Gallagher, Patterson, Murton and a minor leager is actually pretty small price to pay. I wonder if Harden is just Mark Prior in disguise, I thought I heard on the radio he has been on the DL nine times in six year, however the article says six times. Harden is signed until the end of next year so at least he is not a rent a player. I am a big Murton fan and I hate to see him go, Patterson I could take him or leave him. On a side note at an Iowa Cubs game I attended six weeks ago Patterson was on first when Felix Pie came to bat. Pie hit a towering fly ball to the catcher and Patterson took off running and was standing on third when the ball was caught, the catcher threw it to first for an inning ending double play. Don't get me wrong I am not a Cubs hater, I hate Cubs fans, would I be happy if they win the World Series, yes. I would be happier if the Sox win it though

Whether you love him or hate him AJ Pierzynski homer in the bottom of the tenth inning completed the sweep of the Tribe and helped us keep our 2.5 game lead over the Twins who also won. We are a little over half way through the season and we are 49-35; I had originally picked the Sox for third in the Central. Can we keep this up? I for one hope so

Rose or Beasley? I think we should go for Derrick Rose; a point guard who can run this team for the next ten years. Mike Downey; from ChicagoSports.com says that Rose is the point guard we lost in Jay Williams after his 2003 motorcycle accident. I have always had a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to Jay Williams, I think it was the lack of judgement surrounding the whole crotch rocket incident. I wonder how our team would have been different if he had been injured? In looking at the 2003 draft where the Bulls took Kirk Hinrich at seven there was not a ton left after him. David West and Josh Howard went later in the first round and probably were not worthy of the seventh pick at the time.
By selecting Rose we will need to move somebody out of that crowded backcourt. Yesterday K.C .Johnson's article said that Deng and Gordon hold the key to the roster. Deng will probably sign a long term deal; Gordon I think will opt for the one year deal. I think it would not be a huge loss for him to go elsewhere. There are times when he puts up tons of points but there are also the 3-16 nights with eight points. I think that tonight is only the beginning!

I know this is late but I was on vacation. But WTF? Paxson said he would hire someone who would resonate with the fans. I have no idea how Vinny does that, that being said I was not for hiring Doug Collins again either. Granted who was out there? Sometimes I don't understand where Pax is going? Today Thank You Isiah (http://thankyouisiah.blogspot.com/) has a post about trading for Carmelo Anthony and why the Bulls not in the mix. There is something about Melo I do not like however he can ball. He is better than anyone on this current roster. If you have to give up Deng and Hinrich to get him so be it! I think we will draft Derrick Rose making Hinrich expendable and probably Hughes too. Melo can score so he would be our answer if Gordon leaves in free agency and Deng has just straight up disappointed me. I can live with a starting five of Rose, Thabo, Melo, Gooden and Noah with Thomas and Hughes coming off the bench. Will we win a championship? Maybe not but we would be better than last season.

In my youth I was a fan of professional wrestling, my friends and I spent hours watching it just for a glimpse of you in a match or begging our friends with cable television to pay for Wrestlemania so we could see you and Mr T battle your enemies. I'll even admit I spent a little time watching Hogan Knows Best. However this week you revealed yourself to be a low life piece of shit. Granted I had begun to think you were a little on the white trash side with your spoiled wife and conceited privileged kids he whole time thinking if you were not a wrestler you would be in a trailer park working at Car X. To suggest that God laid some heavy shit on the kid who was injured by your dumb ass son is unbelievable! This kids life is ruined because you are a failure as a parent and a human being! He lived through a tour in Irag on to be left paralyzed by you son. I hope you son rots in jail and then both of you rot in hell. No hard feelings

The season is a third of the way over and both of our teams are in first place! The Cubs have had good pitching from Big Z and surprisingly Ryan Dempster; Carlos Marmol and Kerry Wood have been great as well. Maybe this is the Cubs year. The Sox on the other hand I am nore worried about. Ozzie is complaining about offense and I can't blame him. Konerko is playing hurt, Thome is bad, Swisher is not hitting; Carlos Quentin is the only ray of offensive light. However in light of all of this they are still a game up on the Twins. Let's just hope that the Indians or Tigers don't get on a streak and bury us.

Sunday we went to the Iowa Cubs game. It was a little warmer than we thought it would be and this of course let to the corpulent of Des Moines to take their shirts off. During one point my older daughter pointed out the arrival of Sasquatch and asked why is it that hairy men feel the need to show other people their hairy bodies? I did not have an answer for her I am afraid

With a 1.7 chance of winning the draft lottery and we did it! Now who do we go with? Derrick Rose? Michael Beasley? I think that we need a point guard and Derrick Rose is going to be like Chris Paul and Deron Williams a stud. We have seen what Tyson Chandler has become with a great point guard. Can you imagine what Tyrus Thomas can do with him? I think that adding Rose will eliminate the need for Ben Gordon and Larry Hughes. Hughes will be tough to move because of his contract. Beasley could provide you with 24 pts 12 rebounds a game he would make Tyrus Thomas and Drew Gooden trade bait. I am torn on this one.
Tuesday, May 20, 2008
I think that the Pistons lucked out by getting the Celtics, I believe they match up better. I like Sheed vs KG I think KG has the slight advantage. I think that Billups and Prince match up nice against Pierce and Allen. This series is going to come own to experience (Detroit) vs desire (Celtics). I don't believe KG, Pierce or Allen have been this deep into the playoffs. This is going to come down to who wants it more, I know KG is hungry I think it will be the Celtics in seven.
This series is tough, you have the defending champs vs the Lakers. Some people say the Spurs are not a dynasty that is nuts. The Lakers on the other hand are loaded with Kobe, Pau and Lamar Odom. However the Spurs have Tim Duncan, who I believe is the best power forward to play the game along with Manu and Tony P. I think it will come down to if Bruce Bowen can contain Kobe. I told my boy GBrizzle Kobe is going to win a trophy, I think he is on a mission and it will be the Lakers in six

I have a friend Holly who moved to DC, she once told me she had to throw away her clothes because she was three years out of style. Well Holly the women of Central Iowa are still fueling the economy with their poor wardrobe choices. It was a truly painful experience. While the Mrs and the girls were looking for new outfits I wandered into the department with all of the picture frames. You could not find a frame without some little catch phrase like "live love laugh" or Family: all because two people fell in love... When did our lives become so meaningless that we need some stupid Hallmark phrase to give our lives meaning? If your life blows looking at the "dance like no one is watching"picture frame probably is not going to help you. I could go on but I think you get the point

First off the West.
I know today that the Spurs topped the Suns. I think that this series is too close to call, it will come down to what the Diesel has in the tank. Next is the Lakers vs Denver; Kobe is too much for Denver. Along with Gasol, Bynum and Odom this is over in five. We now move on to Houston vs Utah. This Utah team is better than the ones that lost to the Bulls in the finals. This is going to be Deron Williams coming out party. I think for Houston it will come down to Yao and MrGrady's performance. In the end Utah will be too much. And finally Dallas vs New Orleans. Dallas the experienced vs up and coming. Chris Paul is going to smoke J Kidd, my head says Dallas but my heart says New Orleans.
Cleveland is leading Washington 1-0 and I think Lebron will be too much for The Wizards. Maybe if Arenas was 100% but I don't think he is and Deshawn Stevenson is no match for him. Detroit will chew up Philadelphia, even though I am a huge Iguodola fan he will not be able to carry the past Detroit. Boston is not going to break a sweat against Atlanta, KG should get some rest for the next round. And finally Orlando and Toronto. I think that the Magic and Dwight Howard are going to take this matchup. I will follow up next week to see how I did.

Man these guys are on fire! The won two our of three against the division rival Detroit Tigers. Two grand slams in one game, one from Crede and the other from Pauly yesterday. These guys are hitting and if you add Gavin Floyd's performance Saturday and Javier Vasquez yesterday I think our rotation is looking good. Also the are burying a division rival, Detroit is 2-10 they are digging a hole that maybe difficult to dig out of. I know it is only twelve game into the season but I am catching White Sox fever!

I thought that that Zambrano looked great he seemed to have his A game and went seven innings he was followed by Marmol and Wood. Soriano had one hit and as usual he was all or nothing hitting a home run. D-Lee and Aramis Ramirez are on fire. I was really inpressed with Fukudome's defense. There was a play where he one hopped the ball into Blanco's chest to hold the runner at third. Now they go to Pittsburgh for three games. And now onto
The 2005 World Champion Chicago White Sox!!!!!
We swept the Tigers! I expect the Tigers will come to life sooner or later but I will take a sweep over a division rival anytime we can get it. Buerhle looked good he seemed to have control of his pitches and made few mistakes. I was surprised by the two throwing errors by Joe Crede; I consider him one of the top five third basemen in the league. However it looked cold in Detroit and a six run sixth inning pretty much can forgive the errors and then four more in the ninth forget about it. Our offense is obviously producing Swisher went yard to start the game, AJ is on fire and Carlos Quentin looks good too. I am very happy with the off season moves of Kenny Williams they seem to be paying off so far. Now they welcome in the Twins for their home opener and I am smelling two out of three!

First off the Cubs: The National League Central is a suckfest. The only real competition in this division will be the Brewers and this will depend on how their starting pitching holds up. Houston and St. Louis are shells of their former selves and Pittsburgh and Cincinnati just blow. The Cubs improved just enough to win this division with the addition of K-Fuk. However there are a lot of holes here too. First off the starting rotation I still think there are holes after Zambrano and Lilly. I've seen Dempster pitch twice this spring and I thought he did well enough but let's see how that translates to major league hitters. Rich Hill could have won more games last year if he had more run support. Marquis is strong in the beginning of the season but then goes back to sucking in the heart of the season. The bullpen will be strong with Howry, Wuertz and Marmol. Wood will have need to prove he can pitch back to back days in order to instill confidence he can be a top notch closer or move over for the heir apparent Marmol. Offensively you have no real lead off hitter to set the table for the heart of the order which will probably looks something like Lee, Ramirez, Fukodome and possibly Soriano. Also the middle infield raises a few questions with Theriot and DeRosa defensively; will they be good enough? Prediction: Win NL Central
Now to the White Sox: The American League Central is the toughest league in baseball. Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Minnesota is a murders row of a schedule. This starting rotation scares me to death! Buehrle and Vasquez I like, Contreras scares me to death, Floyd and Danks are unproven. Man I wish Garland was still here all he did was win eighteen game for you the last couple of years. I am confortable with Dye and Swisher in the outfield however is Swisher playing left or center? If he is in left is Gerry Owens in center? In the infield you have Paul Konerko at first which is fine with me, Juan Uribe at second which isn't bad. We won a World Series with him at short stop and Joe Crede at third. Now is Crede here to stay thus pushing Josh Fields out of the picture? Or is he being showcased? I remember when Crede pushed Robin Ventura out of the picture and Sox fans were upset now the same is happening only this time with Crede being pushed instead of pushing. I like Joe Crede and he was a member of the World Series team but I am worried about the health of his back and his contract demands after this year. Can this team bounce back in this division? We sat back while Detroit added Willis and Cabrera; do we have enough? Man I am having a hard time with this prediction, my heart says they win it but only because I want to go to a World Series celebration in October but my head says third place.
Thursday, March 27, 2008
I like Matt Murton he has helped the Cubs in the last few seasons. He may not be the greatest outfielder in the world but he is a .300 hundred hitter who is better than Reed Johson and Daryl Ward. I am not sure why the Cubs have decided to assign him to Triple A but in reality they will probably trade him. I think this decision will come back to haunt them when they need a right hand hitter off the bench. Oh well it will be an interesting season of them winning the NL Central and get bounced in the first round by Colorado or Arizona, again.

You have fueled my basketball excitement for years I was with you in the post Jordan years watching religiously to beat down after beat down. I will not bring up the folly that ensued. I am hoping that you will play well tonight against Philly show some of the trademark hustle from last year. I want to see you play well and I want you to make the playoffs even if it kicks us out of the lottery. So please play like you mean it!

I have been stewing over this for a while now and I've finally heard enough. Cubs fans you have not won a World Series in 100 years! All I hear is complaining about selling the naming rights to Wrigley Field and if or when renovations take place how you don't want to play at the US Cellular Field? What is the matter with you people? You should be pissed because you're getting fleeced by your owners! They run their own ticket scalping service and you still line up to buy the tickets. They put premium prices for bleacher seats and you still show up. I went to the first Yankees and Cubs series in 2002 and I am sitting next to some asshole on his cell phone! I thought to myself you will never see this in your life and here you are talking to some asshole who could not get tickets. You have a lot of issues facing this team no legitimate lead off hitter, a shaky rotation after Zambrano and Lilly, and an albatross of a contract for a broke down Soriano. Stop the drinking the kool aid and wake up!
Tuesday, March 11, 2008
You inherited a mess when you came in as general manager, I'll give you that. You got rid of J.R. Smith, Tim Thomas and Eddie Robinson, brought in your guy Scott Skiles and fired him, you got the best you could for Eddy Curry; Tyrus Thomas and Joakin Noah, and signed Ben Wallace. I will admit I was not high on Noah but he has surprised me, I hope that Thomas pans out he is one of the few athletes on this team. This off season Pax is going to be your make or break year, you have to sign Deng who I believe will sign because his value should not be as high as last year, try and resign and trade Ben Gordon because he is not going to sign for less than the previous offer and if he signs the tender offer he is going to be a black hole next year playing for a contract. Then there is Larry Hughes and Drew Gooden. What are you going to do with them? You have a tall guard in Thabo Sefolosha who plays defense all the time instead of passively like Hughes. Gooden will be an expiring contract so he maybe worth keeping and maybe even resigning to a reasonable extension. Then where do you go in the draft? A true point guard? Oh and I forgot you need to hire a coach too. Good luck Pax!

Senator Hillary Clinton seems to have regained some of the momentum in this election. I was listening to NPR Wednesday on my way to work and the discussion centered around the Florida and Michigan delegates being seated. Governor Charlie Crist stated his preference of not having another primary but to merely seat the delegates. If this happens; which I think it will happen, these delegates and the Superdelegates will swing the election her way.
And finally: The Biggest Loser Couples
I normally am not a big fan of reality TV however I have a personal connection to this show. My friend Bernie was a contestant on this season. He and Brittany were the "strangers" couple this season. Bernie was voted off this past Tuesday but not before losing close to ninety pounds. Upon returning home he has continued to exercise and workout and continued to lose weight. Congratulations and way to go Bernie!

However the Lakers are another story. I am almost afraid to see how they look when Andrew Bynum returns from injury. I think the trade for Gasol who seems rejuvenated since hitting LA puts them over the top. I would not be surprised to see Kobe holding a NBA Finals MVP trophy along with another championship trophy. Way to go Mitch
And finally the Bulls; good job getting rid of Big Ben. I think that Larry Hughes may be trade bait this summer or maybe the insurance policy for Ben Gordon's likely departure. I do like Drew Gooden however the 4 teams in 5 years worries me. But nonetheless good job Pax

We have been told by John Paxson that you are this teams superstar for a couple of years now. You have the Duke pedigree and raw athleticism and are on the cusp of being an all star well now it is time for you to take the next step. You turned down a multiyear extension before this season and then your game suffered. If you are going to be a superstar you have to have the mental toughness to play through things like that. Look at the statue outside of the United Center! If you slapped him in the face he kicked you in the nuts, he would step on your throat and rip your heart out. His teammate was the same way. Now you may not be as talented as that duo but play to you potential! Be that guy who wants the ball with five seconds left for the last shot to win the game. Kobe wants the ball for that shot, Lebron wants it Paul Pierce too! You have talent please use it! Be our superstar! It is up to you.

Obama keeps racking up the victories. However one of the things that troubled me is James Carville saying the delegates from Michigan and Florida must be seated. Their delegates were taken away by the DNC as punishment for moving their primary forward. As you know Carville is a big Clinton supporter and seating these delegates would give her the lead in the race. The other thing is none of the other candidates were on the ballot in those states except Hillary. Also I think the superdelegates are going to end up being the deciding factor in this race.
Shaq to Phoenix and J Kidd to Dallas. I think that Phoenix is thinking towards the playoffs. They are a run and gun team however during the playoffs the game slows down to a half court game where Shaq can help them. J Kidd to Dallas I am not so sure about I think they gave up too much for an aging point guard. By giving up Diop takes away some length off the bench which could be useful during the playoffs and Maurice Ager is young and could have developed. I don't understand giving up on Devon Harris and putting all of your eggs in Kidd's basket.
I have a new puppy. His name is Peyton. My daughter chose the name and she like Peyton Manning.
