Serena Lost Some Points In My Book

serena

Well there it is. Serena blew a casket in the finals of the US Open yesterday after she was penalized a game point after “verbal abuse”. The referee called her for “coaching” after noticing her coach Patrick Mouratoglou was making hand motions. Serena slammed her racket, had some comments for the ref, and asked him to apologize. The man stood his ground and did not apologize as he had nothing to apologize for. Serena told him not to speak, but then continued to speak to him.

I am a huge Serena fan, mainly because she has an amazing figure. Love her curves. However, after her display yesterday, she definitely lost some points in my book. I understand you are a black woman playing in a sport dominated by white males, but there is a time when you bite your tongue and put your head down. Yesterday was one of those moments. We all understand you were frustrated, it doesn’t help that you were getting your ass handed to you, but take the L and move on to the next tourney. No reason to bring your daughter up in the conversation.

It’s instances like this where I hope Serena goes on a losing streak and doesn’t win one for awhile.

P.S. Props to Naomi Osaka for dominating Serena in the Finals. Hold your head up high. You won fair and square.

Jose Urena Is A Pussy and Keith Hernandez Is A Dumbass

Atlanta Braves rookie outfielder Ronald Acuna was on fire, hitting a home run in eight straight games, including three in a row leading off the game. That all changed last night when Miami Marlins stating pitcher Jose Urena thought he was going to change all of that. The Marlins righty who now has to learn spanish, thanks to Derek Jeter, beamed Acuna with a 97 mph fastball, Urena’s fastest of the season.

This is complete bush league. As a former D3 pitcher, this shit pisses me off. It reminds me of the Sam Dyson, Jose Bautista incident when Joey Bats went ya-ya and pimped the shit out his home run. Dyson had some words after the game. As I have said many times, if you do not want to get shown up, don’t give up a long ball. And in Urena’s case, if you don’t want to be a part of history, strike his ass out. Or at least don’t give up a home run. It’s not that hard, just don’t throw a cock shot.

Well, the streak is still alive….

So why is Keith Hernandez involved? Because of this.

Keith can go fuck himself.

JR Smith Costs Cavs Game 1

jr smith

I told myself before the series that I wouldn’t post after every game, but after last nights performance, I felt it was only right to vent about that epic performance. As you all should know by now, I have an epic hard on for LeBron James, and last nights performance was just another reason why. The King dropped 51/8/8 against the best team in the league.

The Cavaliers did everything right last night until the last four seconds. They rebounded, played at their pace, and were able to keep the game close. That largest lead for the Warriors didn’t come until overtime. Kevin Love had 21 points in his return and the bench combined for 24 points. Ty Lue had to have been happy about those numbers.

Late in the fourth quarter, things got questionable. There was the block call on LeBron that had to be reviewed and what seemed like it took forever for the refs to make their mind, and then there was the play that will go down in infamy. With the game tied and just over four seconds, George Hill stepped up the free throw line for his second attempt. Missing short, JR grabbed the rebound and proceeded to dribble the ball out, running down the clock. Mental collapse, it happens right? Not to a 10 year vet in game one of the NBA Finals! Now while George Hill will not get the blame for missing the free throw, the refs should get some blame for missing a blatant lane violation on Draymond Green. Pretty clear is you ask me….

Am I sour because the Cavs lost? Absolutely. Does Draymond Green piss me off because he is a piece of shit? Absolutely. Ty Lue should take a note from the Chuck Daly playbook and dress Kendrick Perkins and let him get his six fouls in, all on Draymond.

The last event that really put me in a tizzy was during LeBron’s post game interview.

How the fuck is LeBron James supposed to know what is going on his JR Smith’s head? ESPN reporter Mark Schwartz asked the question in a different way 5 different times. Cmon Mark, do your damn job. And since Mark is a pussy and doesn’t have a twitter account, he still got roasted.

The Den’s 2018 NBA Finals Preview; Part IV

Finals

Here we are again. The Cavaliers and the Warriors in another NBA Finals. Is it boring? To some it may be. To basketball junkies, this is awesome. Let’s be honest. The chances of Cleveland capturing another title is pretty slim, but we get to watch LeBron James on the ultimate stage. So what if he falls to 3-6 all time in the NBA Finals. How many people actually thought he would return for a fourth straight season with this roster? Love him or hate him, The King is the best basketball player in the last 20 seasons. Yes, I said it. He was, is, and always will be better than Kobe Bryant. We are truly witnessing greatness.

Enough of me jerking off over LeBron. While LeBron may be the best and most dominant player of the last 20 seasons, the Warriors are on pace to be the most dominant team since the Bulls in the early and mid 90’s. Yes, better than the Kobe and Shaq Lakers, better than the Duncan Spurs., better than the trio in Miami. If you took one of the three stars away, this team would still produce. They all know it. Heck, Klay Thompson is willing to take a pay cut to keep the squad together because he knows how damn good this team is. The only way the Cavs have a chance of winning this, is if two of the big three from Golden State go down.

Cleveland will win one game in this series, maybe two. Role players such as JR and Korver will have to step up one night and put the ball through the hoop a bunch of times. Other than that it will be back to back and three out of the last four for Golden State. So please, do us all a favor and enjoy the basketball on display. Appreciate LeBron James, and don’t try to compare him against Jordan. Sit back, relax, have a cold one or two, and witness greatness.

Warriors in 5.

Gender Reveals Gone Wrong

reveal.jpg

It’s been awhile since we have done a FOTW (Fail Of The Week). This past week we were blessed with a series of fails. Gender reveals have become a thing over the past two years or so. Hitting a softball/baseball, kicking a football, or spinning your tires. Couples are trying to become more and more creative and outdo the last youtube video sensation. Over the past week or so, three guys have made complete fools of themselves with their gender reveal videos. They have lost their man card, any athletic ability they may claim to have, and will forever be remembered by these videos.

The guy below looks the most athletic out of all three. I want to give him a pass due to the high pitch, but being a gender reveal, you really have to swing at anything. This is a hit and run type situation and you got to put the bat on the ball. Do anything.

The slo-mo add to the video, and the fact the ball explodes on someones head. Got to be ready at all times.

I feel bad for this guy. It looks like him and his family are about to walk into a game at Wrigley and instead his wife embarrasses him in front of thousands of people.

The worst part of this one is his much this guy choked up. You are shining a waffle ball bat. Could have used those extra 2-3 inches on the bat to make contact.

The video below is the worst of the three. Dad ready to go, has the batting gloves and the shades on. Who the fuck does he think he is? A-Rod?

How about all those softballs behind him at the fence. How many swings and misses did this guy have? This is clearly the worst of all three, and he should no longer be able to partake in any sporting activities. Got to feel bad for his daughters.

D3 Pitcher Throws Up And Saves Game

The word grit has been thrown around loosely ever since the guys over at Pardon My Take made it popular once again. This player has so much grit yada yada yada. I had to look up the true definition of grit to truly understand what it means, so that I could use it correctly.

Grit (Noun)Perseverance is the steadfast pursuit of a task, mission, or journey in spite of obstacles, discouragement, or distraction.

You want to talk about grit? Nick Bosma has fucking grit. The Junior righty closer entered the 9th with a 2 run lead. What happened next is truly remarkable.

Matt Harvey would have pulled himself immediately. CC Sabathia would have asked for another box of cereal. Maybe only Tyler Bauer would have attempted what Nick Bosma did. Give this man a god damn medal. Best of luck to Bosma and the Rhodes Lynx as they compete in the Central Regional.

Who Is To Blame Here?

manny
The college baseball regular season is winding down and things are heating up as we get closer to conference tourney time. Emotions are high, strike zones are getting tighter, and the balls are flying just a little bit farther with the warmer weather.
In Big10 action, Nebraska and Indiana were battling in game one of their 3 game set when Angelo Altavilla went ya ya to secure the W for the Huskers.

That catcher got up REAL quick. Sure the hitter admired his work but I said it when Jose Bautista took Sam Dyson deep. If you do not want to give up pimp jobs, don’t throw the ball down the middle of the plate. The catcher set up outside, and the pitcher laid a fastball in any lefties sweet spot. You deserve to look bad. It blows my mind how often pitchers miss their locations. As a former D3 stud at SUNY Brockport, my last 100+ pitches were all fastballs, and each one painted the black and hit catchers glove.
So who is the bad guy here? Darin Erstad for pulling his hitter for admiring his shot? Angelo Altavilla for admiring his work? Or some scrub pitcher who can’t hit his spot?
And for all you Buffalo Bisons fans, here is one of the all time pimp jobs….
