ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter will pitch Game 7 of the World Series Friday night, while left fielder Matt Holliday will not play because of a wrist injury. Carpenter will oppose Matt Harrison following a spectacular Game 6, in which St. Louis rallied twice to win 10-9 in 11 innings. Carpenter won Game 1 of the Series and pitched seven strong innings in Game 5 on Monday. In three postseason starts, Harrison hasn't pitched more than five innings.
If a 36- year-old Carpenter can go on three days rest, so should a 30- year-old Wilson. Especially considering he is a free agent to be and probably headed for a big contract somewhere else. And CC Sabathia excluded, he is the best free agent on the market. Some team will definitely overpay for his services and the Rangers need to realize this.
They should have run him out their every 4 days and thrown his damn arm out, a la the Brewers and CC in 2007. But that's the price you pay to get championships in major league baseball. Its not the NFL, there is no parody in MLB. When you're this close to winning it all, you do what the Cardinals are doing, and throw your best starting pitcher with at least three days rest.
Its seriously a fucking joke that Wilson isn't starting this game. He should be ashamed of himself. But after further research (i.e. Wikipedia) it seems as though Wilson is a real douche....
Wilson is a devoted Taoist and adheres to a "Straight Edge" way of life (abstaining from alcohol, illegal drugs, and promiscuous sex in order to maintain health). As a sign of his choice of being Straight Edge, Wilson has the words "Straight Edge" tattooed along the length of his torso, Japanese characters on his shoulder that read "Poison Free" and "XXX" stitched on his blue glove as a straight edge symbol.
No drinking, drugs or casual sex. What does he do. Seriously, how does he spend his hours when he's not playing baseball. I have so many questions, now. But I know one thing's for sure, I can't respect a guy like this. Maybe it is best that he sit this one out.
Then again the meatball on the left with the short shorts isn't a bad pick either. This is probably the only time this kid saw the ball all season. Probably the kind of kid who grows up to be a blogger and says shit like, Jay Cutler is better than Tom Brady, Vick, Brees. You know the kind.
Let me start by saying that Chris Harris is a below average NFL safety. He would definitely not start for 25 or so teams in this league. And his play in the Detroit game was a clear indication of how bad he is playing this year. However, when your current safeties are the rookie Chris Conte, the often injured Major Wright and Brandon Meriweather, there is definitely room for Harris. For god's sake even Craig FUCKING Steltz has started for us this year. Even if you don't want to start him, Harris has value as a veteran run stuffer and he will be missed in late November and December when teams are running the ball more.
I can't imagine this is a popular decision in the locker room either. Urlacher and Briggs can't like it. But hopefully Jerry Angelo has a plan to bring in another veteran safety to replace Harris, maybe Darren Sharper, who is a free agent. He's 35 but we really only need 9-11 games out of him. I really don't think he'd be that much of an improvement, but its worth a shot. However, with the injuries the Bears have had at the position it would be a mistake to not have looked into Sharper earlier in the season..... but with Angelo that wouldn't surprise me.
Now, everyone knows I hate Joe Buck. And everyone knows I believe he got a divorce from his wife after fucking Fernando Tatis. However, I have to give credit where credit is due. This was a great way to end this game last night. It gave me goosebumps.....not in a gay way, but in a manly- I eat steak- kind of way.

7 lead changes and 4 ties throughout the game. Big home runs late in the game for the Rangers. Equally as big, was the clutch hitting of the Cardinals. Two, two-out, down-to-their-last-strike comebacks in the 9th and 10th innings? A walk off by the guy who dropped a pop earlier in the game? Shit was crazy. It was some of the best baseball of the season.
Jack Morris' 10 inning complete game, 1-0 win in Game 7 in the 1991 World Series vs John Smoltz and the Atlanta Braves is the only other game that I could think of in my lifetime. There have been walk offs like Joe Carter off Mitch Williams in the 1993 Series, and Luiz Gonzales vs the Yanks in 2001. But last nights game from the first pitch on was solid action.
PS- Am I a bad Cubs fan for rooting for the Cardinals last night? I was really just rooting for a GAME 7. Because those are the two greatest words in a sports fans vocabulary, right? I felt dirty doing it. God knows I hate the Cardinals more than any other team. But its Game 7. The last time there was a game 7 in sports, Vancouver almost burned down.
But you're right , I was wrong to do it. Fuck the Cardinals.
See this sack of potatoes above, her name is Jennifer Nicole Lee and was at 200lbs after her second kid. Now she is fitness expert after losing a bunch of weight and slangs a bunch of shit for shitload of money since her story was on Oprah.
Why am I talking about it? Cause she looks like this now
What would be awesome if it was two different people the whole time. Like there is some fat chick mastermind sitting in penthouse watching her stacks grow and pounding Friendly's (seriously check out their menu). And this replaceable Miami beach gold digger is hugely rich and famous but they both need each other to keep facade up and the story secret. Sounds like a Lifetime movie to me.
Patrick Myshrall never told his parents that he was signing up to play varsity football for St. Peter-Marian High School in Worcester, MA. But, his family was in attendance last Friday when he scored his first touchdown, in his first game played. The significance of the moment is that Patrick has Down syndrome, but he has never let it beat him.
What the fuck #5 and 19# had a shot to tackle him. #5 even had the angle. I like how they think they are doing him a favor. Id like to see any of these assholes tackle him once he got upset and realized what direction to go in.
We are going to run into a real problem when one of these super human stregnthed people? learns how to play football. It can't be that hard to train one to take hand offs and just go full steam to the goal line (my parents cocker spaniel learned in a couple weeks) . And if someone got Edgerrin James in to the college, it will probably easier to teach one of these guys how to cheat on their college placements exams.
Tebowing: (vb)- to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.
This is fucking stupid and there is lot more pictures of people doing it. But the chick in the particular picture is hot and her sexy little black dress is a little opened up as her legs spread. Then I got to thinking about nailing her (at least fingering her) at work in that copy room.
Beasley asserts in his suit that Bell Sports Incorporated President Joel Bell bankrolled Curtis Malone’s nationally recognized DC Assault summer basketball program and that in return Malone felt obliged to steer Beasley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft, to Bell for professional representation. Beasley’s suit contends that, along the way, Bell and Malone violated NCAA rules and federal laws governing agent conduct.
Well this is pretty much the order of the day in AAU basketball. There are shady agents, coaches, and players all along the way. Then magic happens when all three of them collide like this. The Beas had rumors of being the "wrong" type of guy since high school. All he did was jump around to the next best deal (6 schools, 5 states), tag his name all over the high school and then have Kansas state move his family out there.
"I'm just killing time here," said Beasley, who averages 28 points and 16 rebounds from the forward position. "Sometimes it seems like high school lasts forever."
"Me and Tywon Lawson had a competition at the beginning of the school year about who could sign their autograph the most around the school," Beasley said, referring to a teammate who now stars at North Carolina. "And I don't lose at anything, man, so I walked around with one of those Sharpies and signed graffiti everywhere. Every day, they were cleaning my name off water fountains, ceilings, desks, offices -- whatever. I just thought it was funny."
He wore pajamas to the school cafeteria. He threw sticks at teachers' houses. He snuck out of his dorm after curfew and organized games of hide-and-go seek.
The Beas sounds kind of awesome. For me he is the "right" type of guy...to party with. Play on player
"Super Cool Beas" what a great nickname. I really hope he gave it to himself
“That was the last time my hairline was right and tight! LOL. Coming back soon though #childhoodmemory.”
That's a twitpic and tweet from Lebron talking about fixing his hairline. I heard rogaine and other methods are expensive but not sure why that would affect Bron. I have no clue why he waited this long.
If someone is losing their hair (I wouldn't know) I assume they can tell the second it starts to happen, way before anyone else. That is the time to strike.
This is not the first time he made fun of his hairline and also why obviously wears his headband at a weird angle. So far it has been his most endearing quality.
Its basically an argument that if you were drafting a franchise (not fantasy) who would you value more and who would you build a 6-8-10 year dynasty around. I've made this argument for Cutler going back to last season. The guy throws the ball better than almost everyone, especially on the run. He can fire it in the tiniest of spaces, or he can put a touch pass over the shoulder, and on the spot from 40 yards. But before I start choking, let me take his cock out of my mouth.
He does make dumb decisions. And his leadership abilities are a fucking joke. He needs to learn to lift players in troubled times, instead of sulking about a false start or a missed route. But he is still a talented passer and I love dickheads, who think they are better than everyone else.
Obviously if I needed to win this year or next, Brady and Brees would be on the list too. But Cutler (28) is 6 years younger than guys like Brady or Manning and isn't a midget like Brees. But I'd argue that if he were in those offenses he'd have similar numbers.
So again I base these rankings mostly on age, arm strength, and overall talent as a passer.
1- Aaron Rodgers- age 27- Head and shoulders above everyone else. Fuck the Packers.
2- Cam Newton -age 22- This kid has obviously surprised everyone with his play so far this season. He is making plays with his arm more than his feet. I saw him live this year at Soldier and he looks bigger than Julius Peppers. He's the black Big Ben, meaning stronger and faster, but a slightly worse pure passer at this stage of hsi career. He is the real deal.
3- Philip Rivers-age 29- Most similar to Cutler of any QB in the league. Big arm, can throw well on the run, and is a cocky prick. Big fan of his.
4- Big Ben- age 29- Still has plenty of years in him, even though he seems older than 29. He gets the nod over guys like Romo and Cutler is because of his play making ability and size. Championships help too but thats more of a team achievement, and I argue shouldn't be a as big of a factor as age and talent..... (Basically i think Brady gets helped by being in a Belicheck system and that Cutler could win titles with him too.)
Arguments Can Be Made:
Vick- 30- isnt old but he gets injured quite a bit.
Eli- 30 - very close to Cutler in ability and arm. Not as good with his feet.
Romo-31- older and not as talented a passer, one of most overrated in the league.
Definitely Better Than:
Stafford- that shoulder scares me, but he is close to be being in the argument
Bradford- See Stafford
Brady- too old, bad knee
Brees- too short, shit on his face
Peyton- old, injured
Flacco, Ryan, Sanchez, Freeman, Palmer, Fitzpatrick, Kolb, Smith, Cassel

(this joke is too easy right?)
“We’re doing a Whitey Bulger movie,” Damon says of the leader of South Boston’s Winter Hill Gang, who had been on the lam for 16 years and was wanted for 19 murders, among other things, when he was apprehended in Santa Monica in June. “Warner’s got it for us.”
Damon will star as Bulger, Affleck will direct, and Terence Winter, of The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire fame, is writing the script. Last year, Damon and Affleck cemented a first-look deal with Warner Bros., where their production company is now based.(Via GQ)
Why not. As much as I despise Boston I seem like to like all these movies (The Departed, The Town, etc). And a movie about a young Whitey Bulger (Who Jack Nicholson is based off in The Departed) should have enough coke, hookers, and murder for my taste. So lets go get Cole Hauser and Casey Affleck and put the whole band back together.
A few months ago I brought to you the younger Olsen sister, Elizabeth. Yes She is younger and legal and looks like them but hotter. And now she is getting big time and guess what?
From the Chicago Sun Times:
Though Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen’s team insist they have nothing but love for their little sister, Elizabeth Olsen — and are thrilled by her fast-rising career — a source close to the twins says the older Olsens are feeling a bit of sibling jealousy. Elizabeth’s “Martha Marcy May Marlene” already is stirring Oscar buzz for the young actress, something that never has been experienced by her older sisters. But then, the twins benefit from a billion-dollar endorsement biz, thanks to their early success on “Full House.”
According to my source, Ashley and Mary-Kate did show up for their sis’ big New York Film Festival premiere of her movie, “but stayed the mere minimum. ... It sure looks like they really didn’t want to be there. Playing supporting roles is not something they’re used to.”
If I was worth billions the only thing I would be jealous of is a guy with 2 dicks.
The film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake. Jurnee Smollett plays the marriage counselor and Kardashian will play Ava, a co-worker who gives Judith a big city makeover and new confidence as she struggles with her personal issues.
There is nothing really surprising about this. Tyler Perry gives black people what they want. That is fat suits and scenes filmed around a crazy but lovable dinner table. His male demo must have been lacking and he went to correct that right away with a white chick with a fat ass. The guy does simple arithmetic and makes millions.
Whats funnier than this?
How about this?
Right now there are like 3 black people who read this site dying laughing. And to think anyone of us could have seen Dr Doolittle and just decided to X by 2 and it would be us worth $500 million
