Wild World of Wednesday - October 1, 2008

In order to keep this from being the Wild World of Whining I am going to skip talking about the NFL. This season is nuts – at least things are being shaken up a bit! I will say that Al Davis is an absolute nutjob. Someone please do an intervention! I really have a hard time believing that a guy who is the son of a defensive genius could be that bad of a head coach. But who am I to say...

It’s Official: The Yankees Stink

Hahahaha! The Yankees stink. They didn’t even make it to the post season this year. Boo-hoo! They were outplayed and outdone by a team that they always seem to discount. In fact, they use Tampa as their practice area. They have this very lovely facility across the street from Raymond James Stadium for spring training. There are plaques around the city for events that famous Yankees have taken part in. There is an influx of New Yorkers during the cold weather to claim the area as their own.

No more. Go home. Stay in the cold. Deal with your Yankees where they belong – in New York. Don’t discount the Rays anymore. They are the rightful team of the Tampa Bay area. They deserve the fans. Tampa does not need the Yankees. Tampa needs to build their own franchise without the distraction of part-time resident snowbirds.

Yankees ownership has been crying the blues. Deal with it. You’ve spent all that money on payroll but you just couldn’t buy another championship. Too bad. Waaaaa. That will conclude my trash talking. I just had to get it out. I’m tired of hearing that baseball = Yankees. Around here, baseball = Dodgers, not matter how bad they stink.

By the way, I don't have anything nice to say about the Red Sox either but we will save that for another day.

that you tube clip was great. Wish it was longer. I've been in sports hibernation (sp) Almost lost my voice screaming for the Mets. The great thing about football is they don't care about baseball at all, so I can watch the games and not be reminded. Can N.Y. have the Dodgers back? How are your fantasy teams doing? The Yankees have not been right since they signed ARod. Which makes me very happy because I hate AROD. He only went to N.Y. because he figured it would be a easy way to get the ring since he already had the money. I never could figure out why he signed with Texas. Its a small market team, after they pay his large salary this no more money to build a team. Then ARod wants to b*t*ch about wanting a ring. Dude you picked the money don't b*t*ch about it now.

Yeah - that is one of my favorite clips, I've used it more than once.

I don't want to give NY the Dodgers back, in spite of how much they frustrate me. They actually won last night in Chicago. Woohoo!

Yeah, A-Rod is a whiner and so are many of those overpaid Yankees. Then Hank wants to complain? He needs players and not high maintenance crybabies!

As for Fantasy Football - one team stinks worse than I could possibly imagine and the other is not so bad. There is still some time to get things going...sort of...
