Cam Atkinson Took a Puck to the Face in Warmups, Misses Action in Blue Jackets’ Fourth Straight Loss

I really have nothing good to say about the Blue Jackets right now. What seemed like a promising season with a chance to actually make a run in the playoffs has quickly been derailed by a pair of Russians. After blowing a late lead tonight in Winnipeg, the Jackets have lost four straight and have missed some prime opportunities to separate themselves from the Washington Capitals during a seven game losing streak of their own. Columbus’ two-time Vezina Trophy winner has his head so far up his own ass worrying about his new contract that he can’t be bothered to stop a puck and one of the NHL’s most lethal offensive weapons can’t decide where he wants to play the rest of his career and is letting his agent play bullshit games with the CBJ’s front office.

Now the Jackets have lost four in a row, Tortorella refuses to play Anthony Duclair even with a short bench and the Jackets find themselves stuck in Stanley Cup Purgatory where they can’t decide if it’s best to “go for it” or get what we can for Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky to avoid losing them without any return at the end of 2019.

Just when you think the Jackets couldn’t have any more bad luck, shit like this happens. Continue reading

We Get It, LeBron. You’re a Wine Guy (That Likes Wearing Weird Buttons/Pins)

This may upset our resident Lakers fan, DB.. but I wish LeBron would just fucking go away. Everything this guy does is for attention and to get people to talk about him. Yeah, it’s ironic that I say that and turn around and fall into his trap, but there are things that need to be said. Continue reading

Daniel Bryan Showed up to SmackDown Live With a Hemp Title Belt Tonight

Well, the transformation is complete. Over the past month or so, Daniel Bryan has been verbally attacking other WWE Superstars, management and fans for their wasteful lifestyles and consumerism. His “vegan lifestyle” (heavy air quotes on that because it’s pretty well known that he ate so much soy product that he developed an intolerance to it and is now forced to eat meat from time to time for protein) clashed with the WWE Championship Belt since, you know, it’s made of leather. Not only that, but the thing is blinged out to the 9’s, which spits directly into the face of his other anti-materialistic stances he’s taken on this most recent heel-run.

That changed tonight when he showed up with this bad boy. Continue reading

Mariano Rivera Becomes First Unanimous Baseball Hall of Famer. Joey Votto Will be the Second

I’ll start this blog by saying there is no doubt in my mind that Mariano Rivera is a Hall of Famer. First ballot, for sure. I’ll even go a step further and say I wouldn’t want someone to not vote for him just to keep him from becoming the first person to be on 100% of the ballots. HOWEVA… Continue reading

Marshall’s Jarrod West Hit a Shoeless Three to Close The First Half

Somewhere Shoeless Joe Jackson is looking down (or up, if you think throwing a World Series is a hell-worthy offense) and smiling. In tonight’s game between Marshall and Western Kentucky, Jarrod West of the Thundering Herd hit a three pointer in the final seconds of the first half to take the lead while wearing one shoe. These days, you could give me four shoes and I couldn’t steal the ball and hit a three with as much grace as he showed, so I’m very impressed. Continue reading
