What an incredible actress Ms. Richards has become. She is so convincing with her spray tan and fake smile and tits I almost got her confused with Meryl Streep. It really is a shame she hasn't been recognized for her incredible work in Starship Troopers and Undercover Brother. One of these days Hollywood will recognize her incredible Funbags skit and acknowledge her gifts which keep on giving. Charlie Sheen has been so kind to donate money on a monthly rate to Richards because of her convincing act.

Josh Smith has at least one of these a night. A straight drive down the lane throw down that gets the crowd at Philips Arena off their asses and cheering for the hometown Hawks. Once again the Hawks blew out the Heat to take a 3-2 series lead with game 6 going back to South Beach. Not one of the games in the series has been decided by less than double digits. If the Hawks can close it out in Miami they get to travel to Cleveland with a Lebron date on the docket. Laugh all you want but I think it would be a hell of a series at least in the entertainment department with Lebron and J-Smooth trying to one up one another with monster dunks. But of course it relies on the Hawks closing out the Heat. And if you know anything about Atlanta Hawks basketball the furthest thing they are known as is closers. Al Horford is down with a sprained ankle and might not play in game 6 or game 7 if necessary.
The Denver Nuggets clinched their first playoff series win since 1994 with another stomping of the Hornets. It's amazing to think the Nuggets haven't won a playoff series since Mutombo came down with that memorable rebound after they upset the
Sonics in '94. Chauncey Billups has been the difference as the Nuggets will face the Dallas Mavericks in the second round. They should blow out the Mavericks and eventually face the Lakers for a ticket to the NBA Finals. The way the Nuggets are playing right now I would not bet against them. Especially when you have The Birdman throwing down oops...

Let me start off by first saying that I love the MLB Network. If you are a baseball fan it is the greatest thing to happen since Albert Pujols passed his drug test. ESPN's coverage of baseball is so GD awful and bias that it is hard to stomach. So the MLB Network coming along is a great thing because you know, they actually talk about teams other than the big market ones that are near Bristol. Matt Vasgersian can be pretty witty and funny. Obviously he was going for both right here with Mitch Williams and Billy Ripken in the studio and wasn't serious. So if anybody thinks Vasgersian is racist for mentioning that the EMT was Donovan McNabb obviously doesn't understand racist humor. See, as long as you laugh it isn't racist. I laughed. Not racist. End of story. You can find my Irish ass drinking at the local watering hole after work if you want to discuss the merits of racist jokes. Oh, don't worry, I've been drinking all day in case you were wondering.

UPDATE:Vasgersian offered up an apology last night on the MLB Network for his poor timing and attempt at humor...

Notre Dame football players Robby Parris, Pat Kuntz, Armando Allen, and James Aldridge have their own version of the 7th floor crew. The "Bend But Don't Break" song features recent grad and new Indianapolis Colt defensive lineman Pat Kuntz rocking the wife beater and the cut off jean shorts. Sounds like a Florida Gator to me. Parris is in the Titleist hat and will be right behind Michael Floyd and Golden Tate on the depth chart this fall at wide receiver. Armando sounds like he has the most flow and I will forgive him for wearing the Yankees hat. Just get in the end zone this fall Armando and all will be forgotten. And "The Moose" James Aldridge is on the backup vocals. He will be trying to survive his senior season in South Bend at fullback after a switch from tailback due to injuries and depth chart issues.
I'm kind of disappointed they didn't get down and dirty like former Miami Hurricanes players Greg Olsen(a ND transfer), Jon Beason, Darnell Jenkins, and Tavares Gooden with the 7th floor crew...
Actually, maybe it's a good thing they didn't get too dirty. The media would have a field day if Notre Dame football players were rapping about sex acts. Now that I think about it this will probably be controversial because it involves talk about loving "the green", guns and getting money from Notre Dame football players at a school that preaches Catholic values. Oh well, they will have to get over it.

The great Bill Cosby made a guest appearance on ESPN's coverage of the NFL Draft yesterday and provided some funny insight to Texas wide receiver Quan Cosby (no relation) in regards to the draft. And of course Erin Andrews, you might have heard of her, is right in the middle of this funny exchange. Poor Quan never got drafted. Can you say awkward exchange?

To me it looks like Tim Tebow has the biggest "eat shit" look on his face. I'm serious. It's like Tebow doesn't even want to be there. He has circumcisions to perform in third world countries my friends. But why would Tebow bow to Obama while giving him the death stare? This original picture will be worth millions in 20 years when Tim Tebow is elected our President. Tebow has future presidential candidate written all over his face and resume.
Or maybe, just maybe, Tebow took this Obama quote as a dig to his team...
"I don't want to stir up controversy," Obama said. "You guys are the national champions -- I'm not backing off the fact we need a playoff system. But I have every confidence that you guys could have beat anybody else. And so we'll see how that plays itself out."
Tebow responded with this promise to Obama...
“To the fans and everybody in the White House, I’m sorry. I’m extremely sorry. We were hoping for a playoff. That was my goal, something college football has never done here.”
“I promise you one thing, a lot of shit will come out of this. You will never see any player in the entire country cut as many penises as I will the rest of the season, one of them being John Swofford for promoting this ridiculous system. You will never see someone push the BCS around as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season.”
“You will never see a meaningless bowl game on January 4th again.”
“God Bless and Fuck the BCS!”

For the first time we have two NFL players gracing the cover of the popular video game. Good choices. Polamalu is one of the premier defensive stars in the league and the same can be said for Fitzgerald on the offensive side of the ball. It also officially eliminates these two from making the playoffs this year. So if you are a Baltimore Ravens or Atlanta Falcons fan you should be very happy these two are Madden video game cover models. It's like "Final Destination" for Polamalu and Fitzgerald. You can't escape fate. The Madden Curse will find you.

Normally I don't agree with the police using excessive force but this guy is just an idiot who was given many chances to just put some clothes on. Nobody wants to see your peanut dick at a concert. Hope those shrooms were worth the night in jail and the lifetime full of embarrassment because the whole world had to squint just to make out a penis. Seriously, did the doctor not circumcise this dirty hippy or what? This video is not safe for work by the way. But it is funny as hell because you are just waiting to see eraser dick get tasered. And to top it all off the guy was in a wizard suit before he stripped down while tripping his ass off.

Perennial Pro Bowl Tight End and future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez has been traded to the Atlanta Falcons for a 2010 second round draft pick. This is a hell of a trade for the Atlanta Falcons and Tony Gonzalez. The Falcons get a tight end they have been craving since they released Alge Crumpler's big ass a few seasons ago. Gonzalez had over 90 catches and 1000 yards receiving for the 2 win Kansas City Chiefs last year. The guy still has mad game. He wanted out of KC and there really wasn't a better place to go than Atlanta.
He will be catching lazer beams from Matt Ryan and will be part of a prolific offense that features star running backs Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood and up and coming receivers Roddy White, Michael Jenkins, and Harry Dugan Douglas. The Falcons are going to have an offense on par with the Indianapolis Colts of a couple of years ago. Most importantly the trade gives the Falcons chances to improve their defense through the draft. I knew they wouldn't draft Brandon Pettigrew on Saturday because of their defensive needs which are a lot. They have to get a defensive tackle, inside/outside linebacker, and strong safety. They can get a good defensive tackle and/or outside linebacker with their 1st round pick. One of either Peria Jerry of Ole Miss or Rey Maualuga of USC should be available and will start right away. If they are looking for a safety they can get either William Moore of Missouri or David Bruton of Notre Dame later in the 3rd round and up. I think Bruton is going to be a really good pro. His athleticism and smarts are off the charts. I'm sure the Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff has a game plan and knows exactly what he is going to do if the chips fall their way.
And this message is to Tony Gonzalez. You are now out of that hell hole called Kansas City. Great people live in KC and the barbeque is to die for but come on Tony, the women there aren't shit compared to the Atlanta ladies. Pictures like the one above will not happen in Atlanta. We have Southern Belles down here that will knock your socks off. Socks=condoms
Enjoy my brother and help get us Falcons fans a ring...finally. I offer you these in exchange...

Dude, I just saw this video posted over at BarstoolSports and literally had to pick up my chin from the floor. Holy shit, she made Omar Vizquel and Magic Johnson weep. This girl would make a hell of a point guard. Her name is Boyanka Angelova (yes, the jokes write themselves with that name) and she is from Bulgaria. Her internet fame is about to go off the charts. I'm talking Numa Numa famous or even Fat kid on a Rollercoaster famous.
Posted by Matt Fairchild (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 9:22 AM
Staff and Knowshon thought the women in Athens were good, wait till they see the NFL 'gina.
Here is the annual Sportscrack NFL Mock Draft. As usual the requirements for this mock draft were cheat sheets from insider scouts such as Mel Kiper and Todd McShay and our own basic knowledge of college football. And lots of beer. To help with the draft I asked my buddy Felix to partake. In other words I threatened him. He obliged after I removed the raw ether soaked rag. They always do. You will notice his writing. It has complete sentences and proper grammar. Nancy Shakespeare writing I call it.
1. Detroit (0-16)-Matthew Stafford, Georgia, QB-The Lions were the only perfect team in the NFL last year so things are looking up in Detroit. Oh wait, by perfect I meant to say they perfected shitholeness. Detroit has a ton of needs and one of those is QB's. The jury is still out on Matthew Stafford much like it was with Matt Ryan last year. Stafford played in the toughest conference and put up admirable numbers although he was overshadowed by Tim Tebow for good reason. Stafford has the arm and the intelligence to be a good NFL QB. But will Detroit put enough pieces around him to make him a success? We will see as Lions fans will get to see Stafford throw bombs to Calvin Johnson for at least the next few seasons.
2. St. Louis (2-14) - Jason Smith, Baylor, OT - (Felix pick) -
Apparently the Rams need a tackle and Jason Smith is a stand-up guy. He's not lazy or crazy like Andre Smith, who will still probably crack the top 10 on the draft board.
Before we go on, I need to disclose something to our trusty readers. I'm using ESPN and other experts as a cheat sheet for this mock draft. I know very little about trying to evaluate the needs of any particular team, or ranking the talents and skills of those available for the draft. If I didn't have these cheat sheets available, I might have taken Percy Harvin at #2 because his speed won me a lot of games on NCAA '09 for PS3 against other online gaming degenerates. His speed helped me crack the top 20 rankings nationwide. And although he seemed to get injured every time I ever played against Ohio State, his ability to take the game over could revive "The Greatest Show on Turf."
3. Kansas City (2-14) - Aaron Curry, Wake Forest, LB-
The Chiefs need help on both sides of the line but Aaron Curry is too talented to pass up at linebacker. This Wake and bake linebacker has runningback speed and can close with the best of them. A student of the game, Curry should step in right away and start once training camp opens. With new QB Matt Cassel the Chiefs might elect to take an offensive tackle like Eugene Monroe to help protect their investment but I believe Curry is just too good to pass up. Plus the Chiefs can always trade up to get an o-lineman in the 2nd or 3rd.
4. Seattle (4-12) - Eugene Monroe, Virginia, OT - (Felix pick)-
Eugene Monroe isn't as lazy or crazy as Andre Smith either. In fact, so far Matt and I have the same first four picks as Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay. So where the fuck are our huge paychecks? I hope the even numbers of the first round aren't loaded with offensive linemen. Trying to talk about fat slobs is boring. My fat slob tolerance is already pushed to the limits since Charlie Weis is head coach of my beloved Fighting Irish.
5. Cleveland (4-12) - Michael Crabtree, Texas Tech, WR -
Does anything good besides Lebron James come out of Cleveland? The Browns continue their dumb shit moves this offseason by hiring Eric Mangini. Now they want to get rid of Brady Quinn and Braylon Edwards, two supreme talents who deserve to be playing anywhere besides Cleveland. I think Crabtree is going to be a good pro but his career could be fucked in Cleveland. It's the abyss of pro football. Drafting receivers this high usually don't pan out. Look up the numbers because I'm too fucking lazy to do it for you.
6. Cincinnati (4-11-1) - Andre Smith, Alabama, OT - (Felix Pick)-
What did I JUST SAY about even numbers draft picks and offensive linemen? Fuck. So the Bungles want a crazy and lazy dude to protect the knees of Carson Palmer. Brilliant move. But I could really care less. I don't like the USC Trojans or anything associated with them, so his health is not of my concern.
And in just a few weeks time, we'll hear Roger Goodell say, "With the sixth pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bungles select Andre Smith, allowing the University of Alabama to claim another National Championship."
7. Oakland (5-11) - Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland, WR -
Al Davis loves speed guys and Heyward-Bey is the fastest player in this draft. Heyward-Bey didn't get a lot of recognition at Maryland because he lacked a QB and because it was Maryland for christ sake. Nobody gives a shit about football in Garyland. In the first wow pick the Raiders will take Heyward-Bey over the likes of Percy Harvin and Jeremy Maclin. Al Davis wouldn't have it any other way.
8. Jacksonville (5-11) - Jeremy Maclin, Missouri, WR - (Felix pick) -
Sweet. Not an offensive lineman.
So as I mentioned earlier, I am using the mock drafts of Mel Kiper and Todd McShay from ESPN.com as a cheat sheet to help me through this. Which leads me to what I REALLY want to talk about. Has anybody else noticed the absolute disdain that Kiper and McShay have for each other? It is painfully obvious each time they are on camera together, that they genuinely dislike each other. ...to be continued...
9. Green Bay (6-10) - Brian Orakpo, Texas, DE -The Packers are going with defense in the first round and have their choice of defensive standouts at this pick. I believe Michael Johnson will be the better pro but I think the Packers like O-Sack-Po more. They could also go with that tub of goo out of Boston College to play nose tackle. Kiper an McShay can argue over this while having make up sex. Those two were made for each other.
10. San Francisco (7-9) - Mark Sanchez, USC, QB -
The Alex Smith experiment looks like it's over. Actually it should have been over as soon as Urban Meyer left for Florida. QB's are a crapshoot in the draft and the 49ers need one badly so they are going to take Sanchez. I could tell you this is a good pick or I could tell you it's a bad pick. Honestly I have no fucking clue. I thought Leinart would be good in the pros. My gut tells me Sanchez will be at least serviceable in the NFL. I don't think he will be a star but I think he can win some games for the 49ers. So that is all you are getting from me in regards to some guy who went to USC. Just talking about Dirty Sanchez makes me want to bathe in vinegar.
11. Buffalo (7-9) - Aaron Maybin, Penn State, DE -
The Bills need a pass rushing specialist who can be effective on the speed rush and Maybin is the guy. Maybin is a little under weight for the role but he should be able to put on some once he starts eating Buffalo Wings. And drink lots of beer. It's called the Fairchild diet, I do it at least twice a week. Sometimes more. I think Maybin will be a good pro and I also think the Bills can contend next season. I wouldn't be surprised if they took Tyson Jackson out of LSU with this pick either.
12. Denver (8-8) - B.J. Raji, Boston College, DT -
The Broncos have a horrible defense and need to build it up starting within. B.J. Raji, if he drops this far, is the best defensive tackle in the draft and should start right away in Denver. Raji came out of nowhere last year and dominated up in Backup College so buyers should be aware of a one hit wonder.
13. Washington (8-8) - Tyson Jackson, LSU, DE -
The Deadskins need a defensive end to rush the passer more than they need a QB who could be a failure. Jackson is another LSU product who would start right away in Washington. The Redskins don't seem to be too happy with Jason Campbell at quarterback but taking Josh Freeman here would be a big mistake in my opinion. The guy has terrible vision and Jackson is a disruptive force who should play in the league for a while.
14. New Orleans (8-8) - Beanie Wells, Ohio State, RB -
Let's be completely honest here. Reggie Bush is not an every down back and either is Beanie. But put them together and you got one hell of a Thunder and Lightning combo that could dominate in the NFC South. The Saints have a need for a defensive back but they know that offense sells tickets and with Beanie they could have one of the best in the NFL.
15. Houston (8-8) - Brian Cushing, USC, LB -
Holy shit, I can't believe I'm taking this roided up cock knocker from USC at 15th. I guess I'm falling for the hype. I've watched Cush play a lot and he doesn't impress me too much. Seems more like a pile jumper. But the NFL scouts love him and somehow he has managed to get another urine sample to pass the drug test. Probably that Mexican Sanchez. Mexicans will do anything for money. Don't believe me? Two words: Donkey show. Or leaf blower if you prefer.
16. San Diego (8-8) - Michael Oher, Ole Miss, OT -
The Chargers are apparently in love with UCONN RB Donald Brown, why I don't know, but Oher will be too tantalizing to pass up. Oher should be a top ten pick and the Chargers are getting a steal with him just like when they got Marcus McNeil 3 years ago. He will play right tackle and open up holes for Darren Sproles to squirt through. Why no mention of Tomlinson? Because this is a no 'gina sports blog.
17. New York Jets (9-7) - Rey Maualuga, USC, LB -
This guy is one nasty mother fucker. I mean it in a good way. Rey Rey is an explosive inside linebacker who punishes people. Hurts them. Rings bells. Knocks people out. He is what you want in an inside linebacker. He has his injury concerns but a talent like this is too hard to pass up. He could make an impact like Pomalulu did in Pittsburgh. And I say this only because they look alike and both went to USC. I'm into generalizations if you haven't already figured it out.
18. Denver (from Chicago)(9-7) - Connor Barwin, Cincinnati, DE/LB -
The Broncos got Raji with their 12th pick and now will take Barwin to play OLB. Barwin can be all over the field and is being compared to Adalius Thomas by NFL scouts. As we all know the Broncos need defensive help, and now a QB because Kyle Orton is a walking Jack Daniels bottle. Barwin will be too tough to pass but I'm not going to lie here. I would love to see them trade one of their picks and get Brady Quinn. Quinn could do legendary things in Denver. In Cleveland he will just rot.
19. Tampa Bay (9-6) - Josh Freeman, Kansas State, QB -
The Succaneers need a future franchise QB and instead of trading for one they will take Josh Freeman. Freeman has a big arm and big body that some scouts are comparing to Daunte Culpepper and/or Ben Roethlisberger. I don't see it but what the fuck do I know? Beer. I know beer pretty well. Too well.
20. Detroit (from Dallas) (9-7) - Robert Ayers, Tennessee, DE/LB -
The Lions need talent at every position. With the drafting of Matthew Stafford they have their future QB. They need to address their linebacking core besides Ernie Sims. Ayers fits the mold. Ayers is explosive and can play with a hand down or at outside linebacker.
21. Philadelphia (9-6-1) - Knowshon Moreno, Georgia, RB -
Can you say steal? Special K has been destroying SEC defenses the past two seasons playing behind a suspect offensive line in Athens. I can only imagine what he will do running behind newly acquired left tackle Jason Peters, whom Andy Reid called the best left tackle in the game. The Eagles can groom Knowshon to replace the aging Brian Westbrook. If the Eagles can get Anquan Boldin they will have one their best offseason ever and should make Donovan McNabb a very happy man.
22. Minnesota (10-6) - Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma, OT -
The Vikings need a right tackle and Loadholt is the best one left on the board. This 6'8, 320 pound specimen was a force in Norman and kept Sam Bradford's uniform oxyclean during his Heisman campaign. This year his duty will be to keep Tavaris Jackson from looking like...Tavaris Jackson. Yeah, good luck with that.
23. New England (11-5) - James Laurinaitis, Ohio State, ILB -
The Patriots are looking for another inside linebacker to team up with last year's rookie sensation Jerod Mayo and the Little Animal would be the perfect fit. Laurinaitis has dropped a lot in the minds of scouts but the Patriots seem to know what they are doing most of the time and the Ohio State product is a football player who can make an impact in the NFL.
24. Atlanta (11-5) - Peria Jerry, Ole Miss, DT -
Everybody, and I mean everybody, has the Falcons taking TE Brandon Pettigrew with this pick. Pettigrew is graded the best tight end in this draft but the Falcons have much bigger needs than tight end receiver. They need defense. It's the only reason why they didn't win the NFC last year. Jerry is a big, punishing defensive tackle that can step in and replace Grady Jackson next season. Plus the Falcons can get another tight end, say a Chase Coffman or Travis Beckum, later in the draft so there is absolutely no reason to draft Pettigrew here.
25. Miami (11-5) - Clay Matthews, USC, LB -
The Dolphins need an outside linebacker to replace the aging Joey Porter and Matthews seems to be the best one left on the board according to scouts. Matthews comes from an NFL pedigree, the 4th who will play in the league once drafted, and seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Not the greatest athletically, he knows his assignments and is a fundamentally strong football player. The Dolphins could go Hakeem Nicks here but South Beach might be a little too much for puff-puff.
26. Baltimore (11-5) - Brandon Pettigrew, Oklahoma State, TE -
The Ravens have a need at ILB but Pettigrew will be too good to pass up this late in the first round. Pettigrew has been graded as the best tight end in the past 3 drafts and should look good in Raven's purple and black. Joey Flacco needs a dependable dump off receiver with Todd Heap who just can't stay healthy for a whole season. If the Ravens decide to go defense I see them taking Larry English or Vontae Davis with the pick.
27. Indianapolis (12-4) - Vontae Davis, Illinois, CB -
The Colts have the offense so they need to address the defense. Davis had an up-and-down 2008 season in Champaign but his athleticism is off the charts. The brother of 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, Vontae can play lockdown defense and would look good teamed up with Kelvin Hayden at CB.
28. Buffalo (from Philly via Carolina) (12-4) - Eben Britton, Arizona, OT -
I have no idea who this Britton guy is. I just saw his name as being available for top offensive tackle so I said why not. The Bills have to replace Jason Peters now that they shipped him to Philly.
29. New York Giants (12-4) - Hakeem Nicks, North Carolina, WR -
Supposedly this pick is going to be traded to the Cleveland Browns for Braylon Edwards but since it hasn't yet I got the Giants taking Nicks. Nicks is a tall receiver who could replace the departed Plax at wideout. Braylon would be a hell of a pickup for the Giants. He needs to get out of Cleveland as does Brady Quinn. Either way with Nicks or Braylon you get a big target for Eli.
30. Tennessee (13-3) - Alex Mack, California, C -
I know it's not a sexy pick but Mack makes sense for the Titans. They could take Percy Harvin with this pick but I see Jeff Fischer and his gang being more conservative and going with the reliable Mack. He will eventually replace Kevin Mawae and won't be a distraction with the drugs like Harvin. But since he did go to Berkeley he might have to bring a tree with him to hug.
31. Arizona (9-7) - Donald Brown, UCONN, RB -
The Edge is old and worn out and Brown appears to be the best back left on the NFL draft board. Brown is an every down back who can pass block. Will he keep Kurt Warner happy? Of course he will. When has Warner never not been happy? God's light shines down on his crazy wife every day.
32. Pittsburgh (12-4) - Alphonso Smith, Wake Forest, CB -
The Steelers need corners. Alphonso Smith is a very good corner. No more explaining, you get it.
So there you have it. 3 wide receivers taken in the first 9 picks. 2 QB's in the first 10 picks. And yet those are the picks that usually don't pan out. To live and die by the sword of the college offensive star. NFL teams can't help but take the pretty girl with the big boobs. Nor can we.

I'm going to sound like such a hypocrite but I'm really into these NBA Playoffs this year. And most of that has to do with "The Birdman" Chris Anderson. The Birdman was suspended last season for "drugs of abuse" as defined by the NBA which means he is probably a cokehead. I mean look at the way the guy plays. He is running around, waving his arms up and down like a bird. The guy must thinks cocaine is a hell of a drug. But that is besides the point. He can jump with the best of them and he is helping the Denver Nuggets (along with Chauncey Billups who has been destroying Chris Paul so far) take an early 2-0 series lead against the Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets.
Most people get into the NBA playoffs because of Kobe, Lebron, Dwayne, or their favorite team is in it. Not me. I love to see The Birdman run around and jump at anything that ball fakes. Plus that European mohawk he is rocking right now is pretty sick.

This is the board feed from when Beyonce made an appearance on The Today Show. Apparently this leaked to the press and Howard Stern got a hold of it. The board feed is what Beyonce is actually singing, not the CD they play over her voice for all the unsuspecting fans. Someone please shoot that howling dog named Beyonce and put her out of her misery. Never been a fan of Beyonce. Actually I can't stand her. That DirecTV commercial she does often sends me into a fit of rage. Things get damaged, relationships get broken, police visit. I want to live a normal, productive life like Lindsay Lohan. So please Beyonce, just go away.

He made it to his first Fenway Park game on Sunday and made an immediate impression on all the Chowderheads up there with his brand new Sportscrack A-Roids shirt. He witnessed the Red Sox take game 3 of their series versus my beloved Baltimore team and said the crowd was digging his style.
Beers were bought for him.
Girls numbers were showered upon him.
Land in Montana and Lakers tickets were offered.
All because of a Sportscrack shirt. It really is disgusting how much attention these shirts draw.
Thanks for the picture Drewski. Sweet Hawk by the way!

Deadspin points out that high School prep QB Jesse Scroggins is being heavily recruited by schools all across the country. If you check his ESPN.com scouts grade page you can see what particular colleges are on his teenage mind. From top to bottom they read Washington, Arizona, Nebraska, Tennessee and the Beavers of Oregon State. He is spelling it out for ESPN and everybody else. At least he doesn't have South Carolina in there.

I know you come to Sportscrack to get insightful analysis regarding cycling so here you go retards. With Leather points out the one cycling highlight I will provide all year.
The royal douchebag goes be the name of Theo Bos. It happened on the 8th stage of the Tour De Turkey as he pulled the yellow jersey of Daryl Impey viciously to hurt the dude. What an asshole! But we already knew that since the guy is a cyclist. I mean what has Lance Armstrong ever done for anybody besides himself. (crickets chirping)
Sorry people, I'm in a rather foul mood today. My internet connection has been blowing almost as bad as the Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles bullpens. I wish they would just stop with the pussy footing with their prospects and go ahead and call up the likes of Tommy Hanson and Chris Tillman. They have to be better than Moylan and Adam Fucking Eaton. Right? Helen Keller could throw more strikes than those two dicknuts. I'm just going to go ahead and crack a beer and curse the internet Gods for giving me a shitty connection today.

My old college buddies, Rivells and Edwards, managed to get their cheesesteak loving asses out to Citizen Bank Park for Opening Night against the Bravos a couple of weeks ago. I won't mention who won the game because we all know. Any who the guys mentioned the shirts were a hit in Philly. Big hits. Rock star hits. In fact these two were pretty much groped the whole night for pictures and numbers from girls wanted to get a piece. It's the power of the Sportscrack Tee. It's irresistible. So grab one Philly fans. Or grab one for your Philly friend. They will thank you later.

Last night I decided to drink a 12 pack of Bud Light and watch some baseball. In other words a typical Thursday night by myself, except this time I wasn't crying. I started watching the Jimmy Fallon show because I was getting a little buzz on and I knew no better. Well, I'm glad I watched because I got to see QB Matthew Stafford put on a hell of a show on national television. His skeet shooting accuracy is deadly. Look at the intensity in his eyes. How could Detroit not want "Viva La Matthew"?

The NFL already lost one of their voices this week when Harry Kalas passed away doing the thing he loves. Apparently John Madden has followed and decided he would rather eat chicken wings and live his life in solidarity on his bus. That was always Madden's dream and now he can have it. He mentions family for the reason if you wanna buy it...
Madden mentioned his family as a big reason for stepping down.
His 50th wedding anniversary is coming up in December — prime football season when he'd typically be on the road. And his grandchildren —his oldest, Sam is 8 — are now old enough to know "when I'm not around,'' Madden said.
"You add up everything and it's the right time,'' he said. "There is nothing wrong with me. Nothing. But at some point, you know you've got to do this. The thing that makes it so hard is that I enjoyed it so damn much. That's why it took me so long.''
Love him or hate him Madden has introduced a generation of video game dorks to the NFL. Myself included. I could never really understand Madden when he announced football games and often times it seemed like he couldn't understand himself. The mumbling got annoying on NBC Sunday Night games. The magic was gone. Cris Collinsworth will replace him and he should be an instant upgrade.
Madden can move on to do other things. Eat wings, play with his grandchildren, sit in his Madden bus and wipe away the tears as he reminisces about all those wonderful Brett Favre moments. And of course do Vagisil commercials...

I feel bad for saying this but I don't think I will be watching too much NHL Playoff action this year. I got turned off this season by the Atlanta Thrashers. The Thrashers are so ass backwards right now it's not even remotely fun to watch. For me it was on par with watching Notre Dame football the past two seasons. You get pissed, frustrated, and start questioning why you even waste your time watching it when all you want to do is finish off the case of beer to make the voices in your head blackout. So yeah, I'm a dick for not watching any hockey this season. Call me fair weather. I deserve it. And since I watched so little this season I doubt I will watch much of the playoffs. My energy and focus is on Major League baseball right now with the Baltimore Orioles leading their division and the Atlanta Braves looking like serious contenders in the National League. Oh yeah, Notre Dame's Blue and Gold game is this weekend too. The Fighting Irish are going to be very good in 2009. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a fan. I'm saying it because I believe they have the talent and experience plus a weak ass schedule to make 2009 a special one.
And in regards to the Boston Bruins commercial above I have to give a high five to the Bruin. You don't date the enemy. Ever. Let alone buy her a beer. Traitor.

Whether or not you are a Red Sox fan or hater you have to agree that Boston pitcher Josh Beckett deserved to get suspended by Major League Baseball. You don't throw at somebody's head because they call time. If his head was Mark you know who then that is okay. But not Bobby Abreu and the Anaheim Angels after the rough and emotional week they went through with Nick Adenhart's sudden death. Beckett deserves the 6 game suspension because he didn't apologize for the intentional throw and because he was a dick trying to start a fight after he threw the pitch.
Things are not starting off too hot in Boston. 2-5 record. Dustin Pedroia has a brother who likes little boys and girls and thus his hometown hates him as does he. And the red hot, division leading Baltimore Orioles are coming to Beantown this weekend. Things are getting very interesting. Surely Boston has to recover as it's only a week into the season but what if they don't? The Detroit Tigers never recovered last season. And they played in a much easier division then Boston. Ruh roh.

It's been a tough week for baseball fans. First we lose 22 year old pitching sensation Nick Adenhart of the Anaheim Angels and then today we lose legendary Phillies Hall of Fame announcer Harry Kalas as the age of 73. Kalas with his distinctive voice that used to crackle "Outta here" will be sorely missed to not only Philly fans but sports fans worldwide. He provided voice over commentary for NFL Films which made him sound like God. Seriously, as a kid I thought Kalas voice was God. Here is how I will choose to remember Kalas, as the play-by-play Phillies announcer since 1971 calling the final out of the 2008 World Series...

As if getting their asses kicked on national television wasn't worse enough, what in the hell happened to the Celtic's Ray Allen yesterday? I know the heat of the battle can get the most of some people but I have never thought about elbowing some guy in the nuts. He might as well used Varejao balls as a speedbag. That's just low man. Real low. Too low. Ray Allen better get suspended for a while by David Stern.
The Celtics are crumbling quickly. Ever since they got Starbury they haven't seemed the same. It was a bad move chemistry wise and it doesn't help to lose KG for an extended period of time. Right now the Cavs have to be the overwhelming favorite in the East because they will have home court advantage and have lost just one game in Cleveland all season. Plus they got the best player in the game in Lebron and have the experience of reaching a NBA Finals.
But what about the Magic with Dwight Howard and the Atlanta Hawks with a team that almost beat the Celtics in the first round last year? Could they come up with a couple of upsets and win the East? Sure they could but my money right now is on the Cavaliers. When you get guys like Ray Allen taking low blows then you know people fear you. Right now the Cavaliers are scaring a lot of people.

Other than this random boob grab on the 15th hole yesterday the Masters coverage on ESPN and CBS sucked. As you probably know I'm not a huge golf fan but I love to watch the Masters. It's suppose to be the best golf tournament in the world yet we only get 3-4 hours of live coverage per day? I want to see every hole and not just the back nine with the leaders. They didn't start live coverage till 3:30 on Saturday which meant all of America missed Tiger's third round for the most part. That seems pretty smart on their part. The one player that everybody identifies with and knows is shown for all of ten minutes finishing up his round. I was forced to watch the coverage on the internet via masters.org which just isn't the same as watching it on live HD television.
Both Tiger and especially Phil put on a hell of a show. Phil's front nine 30 was one of the best stretches of clutch golf that I have ever seen. I don't like Phil but I found myself rooting for him. You could see Tiger seething as Phil was getting the crowd behind him. Both players would wind up non factors though as Kenny Perry appeared to be on the cusp of winning his first major. A Masters green jacket no less. But then it all came crashing down. He finished bogey bogey on 17th and 18th to blow a two stroke lead and force a 3 man sudden death playoff with Chad Campbell and Angel Cabrera.
And of course the one guy who doesn't speak English wins as Cabrera captured his second major on the 2nd playoff hole because Perry and Campbell choked. It was memorable because of the Perry choke. It could have been even more memorable if we could have the option of watching more coverage starting in the morning. They only play this little golf tournament once a year. I don't think it's asking too much to start showing live coverage beginning at 10 am all four rounds. If I want it I sure as hell know golf fanatics want it.
And more boob grabs too while were at it.

Horrible news out of Anaheim this morning as it was learned that Anaheim Angels rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed in a hit-and-run accident shortly after pitching the best game of his young major league career. Just 22 years old and making his 4th big league start, Adenhart pitched 6 scoreless innings last night while striking out 5 against the Oakland A's. Adenhart was a highly regarded prospect out of Silver Springs, MD who was expected to fortify an Angels rotation this year with injuries to 3 of their starters including John Lackey, Kelvin Escobar, and Ervin Santana.
I've followed Adenhart's career pretty closely since he was drafted. As a Maryland boy I was hoping somehow he could be traded to his hometown Orioles this past offseason. It sucks to see someone so young be taken so quickly. It appears his father got a chance to maybe say goodbye to his son according to the Baltimore Sun...
"His father flew out here from Baltimore to watch him start last night, so his father is here, obviously going through a great deal of grief," Angels spokesman Tim Mead said at the stadium.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the Adenhart family and friends as well as the Angels organization. There are no jokes to be written. I will pour one out for Adenhart tonight.

This shitty video footage is from Tuesday at the Masters with Vijay Singh skipping a shot over the water and getting a hole-in-one. Tiger laughed when told about the shot and simply walked over water. He placed the ball into the hole when all of a sudden the clouds parted and the songs of angels and sunlight came down from the skies showing that Tiger is the true God of Golf.
Is there really any doubt Tiger will win this tournament? It appears Vegas thinks Tiger is pretty much a cinch to win his 5th green jacket. Here are the odds for the top 10 guys...
Tiger Woods 4/11
Phil Mickelson 7/5
Padraig Harrington 11/4
Geoff Ogilvy 3/1
Retief Goosen 4/1
Sergio Garcia 9/2
Paul Casey 9/2
Ernie Els 5/1
Rory McIlroy 5/1
Anthony Kim 11/2
So you would literally have to throw down 110 bucks to win back 40. Those are some sick odds. A lot of people think Mickelson will be there with him on the final day but I don't think so. If anyone has a chance it's Padraig Harrington who has a chance to win his third major in a row. It would make a hell of a story this weekend if Tiger and the Fighting Irishman were battling hole-to-hole to number 72.
Oh yeah, why is Sergio Garcia listed at 9/2? Garcia is notorious for taking his sweet time to hit the ball and for not winning a major. He won't this weekend either. The guy just doesn't have it. I blame it on Martina Hingis. She royally fucked up his luck.
PREDICTION: Tiger wins by 2 strokes over Harrington.

Time to call up Tommy Hanson. The Braves bullpen simply can't throw strikes. They walked in four guys in one inning while also hitting another batter, blowing a 7 run lead in the 7th inning. This loss hurts big time for the Braves. And yes, I am available to throw strikes over the plate Frank Wren. Just wanna throw that out there.

Only 2 games into the season and there are already riots among Phillies fan over their play. Come on guys, there are still 160 games left to catch up with the Atlanta Braves. Go spread some Whiz over your vaginas and buck up. Remember who won the championship last year...
Posted by Matt Fairchild (email@example.com) at 9:49 AM
Yeah, I know it's only two games into the season but you have to admit the Atlanta Braves look really good so far. Their starting pitching has completely dominated the defending champion Phillies lineup with Derek Lowe and Jair Jurrjens both throwing gems. With the 2-0 record against the Phillies it already matches their win total against them last season after 16 games against their rival. The team this year appears to be completely different and I should give Frank Wren some props.
During the offseason I pretty much criticized Wren's every move early on. I hated the fact that they were going hard for AJ Burnett and throwing out a ridiculous contract offer to a guy who has had one healthy season. Luckily the Yankees "stole" him away from the Braves and gave him a Carl Pavano/Mike Hampton deal that will surely blow up in their pinstripe faces. I got mad when it sounded like they were going to give up Yunel Escobar, Kelly Johnson, and most notably hot shot prospect Tommy Hanson(autograph baseball available here) for Jake Peavy. Luckily those rumors never came true and the Braves still have their middle infield along with Hanson who is going to be best Braves power pitcher since John Smoltz in my opinion. Wren has moved on to trade for starter Javier Vasquez (a deal that is still up in the air with me), signed Derek Lowe (overpaid but needed to be done), signed Kenshin Kawakami and he let John Smoltz go. I have gotten over the Smoltz leaving Atlanta issue. I don't blame Wren for it. The Braves were put in a bad position where they honestly couldn't win in the PR department with a guy who won't be ready till midseason at best. The point is Wren addressed the starting rotation in the offseason and it now appears if all of them can stay healthy the Braves can compete with anybody in the National League.
The Garrett Anderson signing appears to be paying off after Griffey decided to go back to Seattle. I can't blame Junior for wanting to prove something in Seattle but it would have been great to see him in a Braves uniform. Either way Wren had a backup plan and Anderson appears to fit in well. They resigned Chipper Jones so he can remain a lifelong Bravo and brought up a young centerfielder by the name of Jordan Schafer who reminds me a lot of Grady Sizemore. The future looks extremely bright through these Tomahawk glasses.
What really has me excited is seeing guys like Schafer perform early on and knowing Brian McCann and Jeff Francoeur are both still young guys under the age of 25. Hot shot prospects Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman are both future middle of the order sluggers who should remind Braves fans of the David Justice and Fred McGriff combo. The Braves could have a murderous row of hitters for the next 8-10 years if all these guys pan out to their enormous hype.
So I need to eat my words so to speak on Wren. He has done a good job assembling a team that is ready to compete in 2009. What more can you ask for? A World Series banner would be nice.

It seems like everything is right in the world when you see Ken Griffey Jr. swing effortlessly in a Seattle Mariners uniform and take one deep. His 8th Opening Day long ball ties him with Hall of Famer Frank Robinson for the all-time lead. It was also his 612th career home run and his 399th in a Mariners uniform. Junior looks a little chubbier than his climbing the wall days in the 90's but "The Kid" can still hit with the best of them.
I wonder if Junior is the best player of my generation? I always thought he was a better player than Barry Bonds even when Bonds was juicing. Griffey just had something magical about him. He played the game hard and seemed to come up big all the time in clutch situations.

I honestly had no idea they made music videos anymore before I saw this new Eminem video titled "We Made You." In the video he takes shots at Bret Michaels, Jessica Simpson and her boyfriend/can't win the big game Tony Romo, Kim Kardashian, Amy Winehouse, Sarah Palin, Britney Spears and many more.
Where do they play these videos? Last time I checked the only thing on MTV and VH1 are reality shows such as Real World and Rock of Love. And yes I do watch both of them on occasion to make myself feel better. All the rehab you need is two hours of those shows.
I still don't understand the fascination with Tony Romo. I get that he dates Jessica Simpson which brings a lot of attention but his playing career so far with the Dallas Cowboys has been full of choke jobs on the big stage. His whole NFL career has been one giant fumble yet this guy might be as big if not a bigger star than Tom Brady.
Hell of a video by Eminem. The other day I was thinking all the good rappers had passed(Tupac, Biggie, Eazy E) and we were stuck with the shit that is Jay Z and Kanye West. Somehow I forgot about Eminem. It must have been his two year layoff in between albums. Check out his official website at Eminem.com.

North Carolina proved to the nation last night that they were the best team in basketball this year by completely destroying Michigan State in front of a record 70,000 bored spectators in Detroit. The Tarheels capture their 5th National Title and bring yet another championship back to the ACC. As much hoopla as the Big East received this year from the media and it's fans it was kind of ironic that they didn't even get a team in the championship game. Hmmm, makes you wonder if the Big East will ever match up with the ACC in terms of dominance. Here is your one shining moment in a rather uninteresting tournament...

This is probably a completely bias opinion but I don't see how the Michigan State Spartans are going to hang with North Carolina tonight. Carolina athletically and depth wise are light years ahead of the Izzos. While it's true the Spartans will have home court advantage in Detroit which should work in their favor in the first half I just don't see them stopping Ty Lawson. Tyler Hansbrough will finally leave the spotlight as this is his final game in Carolina blue and more than likely his final staring role in the hoops game. His NBA future looks about as bright as Amy Winehouse chances in rehab.
But acid flashback eyes Hansbrough will have a memorable game as he gets his points by throwing up his patented ugly jump/hook/spike shot into the hole for at least 20.

Mark Teixeira, affectionately known as dickhead fuckwad, from my hometown of Severna Park, MD spoke with reporters today before taking the field at Camden Yards. Get a load of this priceless quote he delivered to Orioles beat reporter Rock Kubatko...
"In a perfect world, the Orioles would have won the World Series every year that I was alive and I'd be an Oriole right now," he said. "I have so much love for this city, for this organization, but in the business world and in the baseball world, sometimes you have to make difficult decisions. And when it came down to it, the Yankees were a better fit for me."
These are the type of players that just make me sick and disgusted. Another pampered athlete who has absolutely no clue or passion. A frontrunning piece of shit who deserves every single boo and curse he will receive today in Baltimore and for years to come in New York. The Yankees are a storied franchise who were built on winners. You Mr. Teixeira are obviously not one. You have no love for anything besides the guy who writes your checks and puts the most zeros on it.
I've never really wished for an athlete to get hurt but I have my fingers crossed he catches a Jeremy Guthrie fastball straight to his soul less heart today and is never the same player.
Go O's! FU Teixeira!

If the Diamondbacks are going to come back this season and beat the Dodgers for the division then they are going to have to cut out the strikeouts. Their young hitters strike out way too much. They fanned 1287 times last year. Chris Young, Stephen Drew, Conor Jackson, Mark Reynolds and particularly Justin Upton all have future stars written on their young faces but they need to learn how to hit with runners in scoring position. A lot of teams are envious of the Diamondbacks young talent and it's now their turn to come together and compete.
The pitching features two of the best starters in the game in Brandon Webb and Dan Haren. Both are capable of having Cy Young type seasons and new addition Jon Garland should eat up at least 200 innings. The bullpen will be improved and it should be able to lock up wins for the starters. The season will essentially come down to the young hitters. If they mature and learn how to hit in certain situations this team could win it all. If they don't then this team will miss the playoffs again.
The Rockies fairy tale 2007 season seems like decades ago. Last year the Rockies season was all but over as soon as Troy Tulowitzki went on the disabled list. They traded their best hitter in Matt Holliday this offseason after it became apparent he wouldn't resign and would elect to become a free agent. The Rockies got some good young pitchers in the deal but they lost their Rock in Holliday. Todd Helton is still getting overpaid to produce jack shit and their overall lineup is nothing to be feared outside of Tulowitzki, Helton, Garrett Atkins, and Brad Hawpe.
Look out for Milton High School alum Dexter Fowler. The lanky centerfielder from my old stomping grounds could crack the big league team by midseason if not earlier. He did really well during the Olympics and could be the leadoff hitter of the future in Denver. The Rockies should struggle this season as the Giants, Dodgers, and D-backs are all better on paper. But then again they could catch a fairy tale ride like 2007 and go to the World Series and get swept. Chances are 1 in a million.
Los Angeles Dodgers:
Manny...blah blah...Manny being Manny...blah blah. It's going to be the same old shit this year in LA. What is Manny doing? Why does he seem like he doesn't care? Why won't Joe Torre bench him? Blah blah. Listen, the guy is a fucking Hall of Famer who might be the best right handed hitter in the game outside of Albert Pujols. He is loaded beyond our wildest imaginations and could give two shits what I, you, or even his booger flicking manager thinks. Why? Because he is fucking Manny Ramirez and all he does is hit for extra bases and drive in runs. Let him do his thing and worry about the rest of your team. The Dodgers are a really good team with him in the lineup. The addition of Orlando Hudson is huge for the real LA team. Hudson will hit behind Rafael Furcal and should score a ton of runs and see a lot of good pitches to hit with Manny protecting him. The lineup should be excellent from top to bottom. James Loney, Matt Kemp, and Andre Ethier are all young and up and comers who should continue to get better in 2009.
the pitching on the other hand has a ton of question marks. They lost ace Derek Lowe to free agency and most of it's bullpen. They are banking on Clayton Kershaw, who is only 21, to emerge and become a fixture in the rotation. It could get ugly if Kershaw can't throw strike one consistently. Hiroki Kuroda is the de facto ace of the staff with Chad Billingsley coming off an impressive 2008 season which could have been a fluke. New addition Randy Wolf could surprise. The hitting will carry the Dodgers this year. I'm just not so sure it can carry them to the playoffs.
San Diego Padres:
The Padres are a franchise running backwards right now. They don't have much talent and what little of it they have should be traded for younger players to build up the farm system. The only problem is nobody was willing to give the world for Jake Peavy during the offseason. Most of that is due to the economy. Adrian Gonzalez should again crush the ball in Petco Park but other than him and Peavy this team doesn't have much.
They will struggle again in 2009 and the only thing they will contend for is the #1 pick in the draft.
San Francisco Giants:
The Giants could be the ultimate sleeper pick coming out of the NL West. They got a potentially devastating starting rotation if Barry Zito bounces back from his all-around shittiness. Tim Lincecum is straight filthy and Matt Cain pitched better than his record indicated. Randy Johnson could stay healthy and be a solid 2 or 3 in the rotation.
The hitting is nothing to get excited about but it does have some speed on it. Randy Winn, Fred Lewis, and Emmanuel Burriss all have the ability to steal a lot of bases and give pitchers and catchers headaches. Edgar Renteria will need to regain his National League form this year as he is put in the 2 spot.
The Giants will go as far as their starting pitching takes them. If they come together they could shock the world.
