Tom Brady Is Deflating, New York Mets 24 Hours To Live, Curt Schilling Toilet Talk Red Ticket Blues 7-31-15

tom-brady-new-york-mets.jpgOn this podcast, Brian makes a special Friday appearance to chime in on two stories that never seem to go away- Deflate Gate and the New York Mets finding new ways to be a laughing stock.

Tom Brady’s suspension appeal has been denied and he’ll miss the first four games of the season, just like I predicted.  Oh, wait, That’s not true.  But, will his trip to court do anything to help his case?

The New York Mets have been low before, but got real low. REAL LOW.  In span of 24 hours they traded, embarrassed, and didnt trade Wilmer Flores.  They teased their fans with Carlos Gomez and then blew a 7-1 lead.

And we stop in to see what public restroom Curt Schilling is in today, plus Mike Francesa breaks news that turns out somewhat, kind of true with Yankees pitchers Michael Pineda and Ivan Nova.

The Time Reggie Jackson’s Stare Pierced My Soul

Tags

, , ,

  Last weekend, Hall of Famer and all around confrontational jerk, Reggie Jackson got into a verbal and then physical altercation with memorabilia monsters.  A video shows the former slugger politely saying, “Pardon me, but I’d like some privacy” in the form of many annoyed F bombs. 

This video, like many videos that are supposed to draw an immediate opinionated reaction or you’re a heartless communist, did not show what happened in the beginning to spawn the incident.  I’d like to give Mr. October a non judgmental pass, but my personal experience with him doesn’t allow it. 

The year was 2007.  Minimum wage increased to $5.85, Peyton Manning won his 1st Super Bowl, and a crumbling George Steinbrenner relinquished control of the New York Yankees to his two sons. 

My friend Scott and I decided that a spring training trip should be in order. Not being able to find an adequate place to stay, I sold him on the idea of staying at Grams Place, a shitty hostel in Tampa, FL.  Yes, I’m a great salesman.

Anyways, before a game we went to watch the team work out as did many fans.  There were regulars like Derek Jeter, coming out retirement family haters like Andy Pettitte, and of course, legends like Reggie Jackson. 

As Jackson strolled by to go do whatever it is he did, I wanted to get his attention by saying something funny, not ordinary, and also not offensive.  So, I thought of the only thing that was comparable to his baseball accomplishments…his thespian role as himself in Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad.  You have to be able to laugh at yourself if you portray a possessed “you” brainwashed to kill the Queen of England.  It’s not exactly Schindler’s List.

 reggie jackson, spring training, new york yankees, mr.october, cooperstown 

Moments before he glared at me inner being.
So, I yelled out to Jackson, “Hey Reggie, we loved you in Naked Gun!”

This douchebag shot me a look as if I had just burnt down his house, made him watch, then pissed on the ashes.  This glare lasted a good 4 or 5 seconds mind you and it was so noticeable that others said to me, “I don’t think he liked that too much”.

In review, this guy agreed to receive money to play this role in a movie where Leslie Nielsen is an undercover umpire, a baseball player is attacked by a tiger, and Ricardo Montalban falls four stories, is run over by a steam roller, and the USC marching band, but apparently I’m out of line for mentioning I enjoyed HIS role!

Reginald Martinez Jackson, you’re an asshole.

This week Brian discusses the departures of some serious big dogs from ESPN. Bill Simmons leaves for HBO while Cowherd unceremoniously departs to FOX Sports.
He touches on how the 1980’s culture has completely fallen apart. Hulk Hogan and Bill Cosby to name a few, have ruined our interpretation of the entire decade. How dare they!
Finally, Brian reflects on a great friend who left us too soon, Steve Heck.

Just Like The Yankees & Red Sox Rivalry, Friendship Never Ends

, , , ,

This originally appeared on Bleacher Report on 8/6/12.

  

 When I was 12 years old, I felt as if my life was crashing to the ground.  During the summer after sixth grade, my family and I were moving 35 minutes away.  But in stereotypical childhood exaggeration, 35 minutes might have well been 35 hours in my mind.

With my bubbled world about to explode, where was I the day before my first day in my new school? Not surprisingly, I was in my hometown playing wiffle ball with my childhood friend Steve Heck, who passed away suddenly on July 27, 2012 at the age of 31.

After years of playoff disappointment and the crumbling of the Joe Torre managerial era nearly complete, Yankees fans needed a unified voice. They needed a rallying cry, something to bring them together, and in addition, something to help men with thinning hair. 

Enter Guiseppe Franco.

He discusses the illusion of liking the beach, despite all the awful production and man eating sharks.
He remarks on how Chris Berman attempts and usually succeeds to ruin the Home Run Derby, but this year is was a little different.
He breaks down he’s frightened about a family member becoming a Met fan. He’s really scared for her.
He talks the NFL and the newest suspected criminal, Titans receiver Justin Hunter.
And finally, there are rumors…very modest “rumors” of a reunion of the iconic Mike and The Mad Dog program.

Man Caught In “To Catch A Predator” Sting Trying To Arrange Horse Sex

Tags

, , , , , , ,

 chris hansen, to catch a predator, american pharoah, horse sex, triple crown , mike francesa Sometimes there are stories in life that defy human, and animal for that matter, logic.  This is one of those stories. In most cases, horses are revered specimens that are gazed upon for their ravishingly excellence in what an animal “should be”.  But, sicko fucko Michael Crawford took his unhealthy leering to a new and screwed up place. 

The 68 year-old Pennsylvania man decided he needed the tender companionship that only an equine can offer.  And it had to be one of the truly remarkable Arizona horses.  So, he traveled 2,000 miles to have sex with a horse. Hey, he has a specific type.

So, in order to fulfill this fantasy he went where else? The Internet! A land where everything is what it is and nothing is laced with deception. But, fortuantley in this case that was all a lie.  

In an Anamalia sting, Crawford wasn’t talking to a horse or a horse owner on the Internet. He was talking to an undercover cop. So, when he arrived in Phoenix, he was promptly arrested for intentions to commit beastiality.  It was all a matter of time once they found the five shirts he wanted the horse to urinate on for future physical and mental horsie erotica. 

No word if it was set up a la personal Chris Hansen style inviting Crawford into an inviting and friendly stable to nibble on oats and hay before asking, “Michael, What are you doing here?”

I don’t know what drives a human to fall this far into a level of deviance and disgust.  Perhaps, he was on a high from the rousing Triple Crown win from American Pharoah.  Maybe he has been rereading smut horse “literature” like “All The Pretty Horses” and “Black Beauty”. Or maybe, just maybe, Mike Francesa’s verbal pony poetry finally got to him. 

http://goo.gl/CGZfPs

There’s no recovery time for horse pleasure. It’s unlikely there are people in Anonomous meetings boasting they’re six months horse sex free. Yeah, he’ll probably strike again.  Just another “tail” on the prairie.

Yankees In Fenway, Greg Hardy, Dez Bryant, Deron Williams – Red Ticket Blues 7-13-15

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week, Brian breaks down his recent trip to Fenway Park to see the Yankees take on the Red Sox.  Alex Rodriguez continues to crush home runs whenever I’m there and we get introduced to young Rob Refsnyder, perhaps saying goodbye to Stephen Drew.

He peeks in on the NFL and surveys the land of of contract negotiations for Dez Bryant and the ultimatum he has given the Dallas Cowboys.   Afterwards, he tries to understand the consistency, and I use that term lightly, with the punishments for bad boys like monster Greg Hardy.

Don’t forget the drama that is the NBA, specifically the DeAndre Jordan saga between the Clippers and Mavericks.  And the Brooklyn Nets dislike Deron Williams so much, they’re paying him to go away forever.

Hasheem Thabeet’s Two Greatest Moments Were Not Getting Thrown Out Of A D-League Game

Tags

, , , , , ,

 hasheem thabeet , uconn, ejected, 2009, memphis grizzlieWhere have you gone, Hasheem Thabeet? 

Oh, there you are.

Yesterday,  “The Tanzanian Terror”  reminded everyone he was still playing basketball by unceremoniously getting booted from a NBA Developmental Summer League game. 

Since entering the league in 2009, Thabeet has been an overall disappointment that seemed to reach the precipice of sadness with his ejection.

But, let’s remember the good times. I guess. 

In 2009, in a game against Pittsburgh, Panther center Dejaun Blair seemingly threw Thabeet’s 7’3″ frame over his body by Hasheem’s arm.  How could a guy in Blair’s condition with little to no cartilage in his knees accomplish this? 

And back in brighter days at Storrs, sometimes you just want to dance. 

Just remember this guy was drafted ahead of Stephen Curry, James Harden, Danny Green, Ricky Rubio, Demare Carroll among others.

Keep dancing, my Swahili star. Keep dancing.


USA Soccer, Killer Sharks, Jason Pierre-Paul, Joey Chesnut – Red Ticket Blues 7-7-15

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week Brian goes over the newest national phenomenon that being the exciting historical run of the US Women’s Soccer team to World Cup excellence. He discusses if the sudden interest in Soccer is here to stay or if it’s just a passing fad in the States.

He discusses all things 4th of July like Killer Shark attacks and how the movie Jaws has ruined him for life.  Shark Attacks can happen at anytime!

Blowing up fireworks on July 4th is quite American as well, but blowing them up in your hands when you’re a professional athlete who uses those same hands is not a good idea.  Just ask New York Giants linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul.  He has big problems on his hands like his contract and his epidermis.

Brian quickly reviews the NBA free agency period. LaMarcus Alrdridge’s new team and what could have been in Sacramento- an all-time bad chemistry team for the ages.

Finally, he weighs on the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest and all the festivities that encompass this gastronomical event.  Spoiler alert-Joey Chestnut DID NOT WIN.

Oh, and did he mention his car at all?

Steven Matz Debut, Kristaps Porzingis Welcomed, Bob Costas Is Brutal – Red Ticket Blues 6-30-15

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week Brian sits down and discusses the NBA Draft and particularly the New York Knicks picking the Lativian teenager Kristaps Porzingis, much to the dismay of the Brooklyn crowd. Was the booing justified or Knicks fans typically over exaggerating their dismay for the pick?

He talks about his experience with a overzealous homeless person. Gone are the days where a dollar is modest request for charity. Much higher is the standard asking price.

Brian breaks down young phenom Steven Matz’s debut for the New York Mets and how much his grandfather loved the big day.

He discusses Bob Costas going a little too far with some comments about Pedro Strop on the MLB Network.  Even a pompous, arrogant, big-headed Bob Costas can’t shake this one off.
