Ah, back to Columbia after the Mizzou-Kansas game in Kansas City and it’s a good day to be a Tiger. Amazing game that puts me back in blogging mode. Posts may be limited in the next few weeks though as finals week approaches. I’ll still work to get you all some decent content though.

Thanks Spoon.

Emotional day at Faurot. See more pictures from Tiger Extra.

ISU HC Paul Rhodes Understands The Greatness That Is Danario Alexander.

November 21, 2009

DaNario Alexander pulled in 11 catches for 173 yards as Mizzou pulled out the 34-24 victory over Iowa State. Add those numbers to the previous two games for Alexander and you’ll see a total of 34 catches for 578 yards and 5 touchdowns and a ringing endorsement from Kansas State HC Bill Snyder and now Paul Rhodes of ISU. Via Rock M Nation:

“Phenomenal. He’s phenomenal. He’s everything that he presents himself to be, everything he seems to be on film. He’s got a little Jim Brown to him. You look at him on the field and you think he’s done and not going to be able to play very fast, and then he comes out of the box like the Olympic guy from Jamaica.”

Comparisons to Jim Brown and Usain Bolt is quite the ringing endorsement. And this guy isn’t a Biletnikoff (Best WR) candidate. Something’s wrong with the system if a guy that broke Jeremy Maclins school records of most yards in a season and career isn’t even considered. Absolutely ridiculous.

Whoever is able to draft Alexander in next years’ draft are going to be thrilled with the finesse and athleticism he brings every week.

Yes, it’s Dallas Hate Week (Hitler is a Cowboys Fan).

Slooooowwwww Motioooonnn Foooor Yaaaaa.

November 20, 2009

All around a weird commercial that couldn’t stop me from laughing. Am I the only one? Just gratuitous use of slow-motion, Obama popping out of nowhere, I thought he was going to stiff arm a little kid and why the hell are is Demarcus Ware playing football with a kid on his shoulders? I’m so confused. I’ll be in the corner poking holes in the wall if anybody needs me. I’m just curious as to why there’s a cat in there.

Iraqis Know How to Piss People Off.

November 20, 2009

Everyone always complains about the United States human rights violations considering the whole Cheney/waterboarding thing but the real torture is what Brett Favre does every summer. He takes SportsCenter (Rachel Nichols especially) hostage and turns crazy. Every summer I watch SportsCenter, hoping the situation will be resolved although it never is. Then I start to second guess myself on whether to watch it and it starts to drive me crazy.

Well Iraqis are starting to pick up SportsCenters tactics by using them against US soldiers. What bastards.

According to a military official, detainees at a Wisconsin National Guard camp in Iraq are using Brett Favre as a manner of getting at the guard troops there.

“They know Favre by name,” said First Lieutenant Tim Boehnen, who is from New Richmond, Wis.

“One of the big words they know now is shenanigan. They’ll constantly talk about ‘Favre shenanigans,’ ‘He’s so good for the Vikings,’ and ‘The Packers have got to really feel bad about that one.’ ”

According to Boehnen, it started when troops there started decorating their camp in Packers colors.

It’s crafty and pretty smart to rag on US soldiers like this, but damn Iraq, you really cut deep.

If I were there, I’d be teaching them some other words that describe Favre. Like douche, attention whore or total f-ing jackass.

5-Year Anniversary of the Malice in the Palace.

November 19, 2009

It has been five years since Ron Artest went Eric Cantona on Detroit fans in what has been dubbed Malice in the Palace. It was a foul by Artest on Ben Wallace who gave him a nice little shove. A mini-brawl ensued before a fan threw a beer cup at Artest and the whole place went crazy. Stephen Jackson and a number of other players jumped in as well, although Jackson seemed to be the only player to hit another fan while in the stands. Oh yeah, and Jermaine O’Neal hit some guy that ran onto the court, but he probably deserved it.

It’s one of those games that will live in sports infamy forever in which sports historians will always tell the story to teach the lesson of avoiding the fans. I could see how it would not have been as big of a deal in the times before the 1980’s or so when sports weren’t as big money makers as they are now. It seemed like something of this magnitude would never happen again, especially with the amount of security and police they now have at sporting events.

Well it did happen, and we will not soon forget it. We also won’t forget that Artest is now a key component to a championship team in LA. Thanks a lot, ESPN.

The story of Doc Ellis and the LSD no hitter.

November 12, 2009

Hey, remember Doc Ellis? Of course you don’t, he wasn’t a particularly memorable pitcher although he does have a place in baseball history. Ellis pitched a no hitter for the Pirates on a day he didn’t even think he was supposed to play. Why? Because he took some LSD.

Ellis died last December at the age of 63 and gave a great account of the events leading up to the game. Well done video and absolutely hilarious.

Luckily, he didn’t end up in an RV bathroom for three days. (Anybody?)

The Twins Have a Good Moving Company.

November 11, 2009

The Twins crashed out of the playoffs this year against the Yankees in the ALCS, leaving behind the Metrodome for their new park, Target Field. Things obviously have to be moved to the new park (but not the crap they sold off to desperate fans) including, hey look its Joe Mauer in bubble-wrap. Yeah, you should probably bring him with you. Michael Cuddyer and Joe Nathan also made the trip in the back of the truck.

Oh, and for some reason a White Sox fan got in the back of the truck for the move too.

One question though, what’s with Minnesota teams moving their stadiums outside. The University of Minnesota moved their football field outside and now the Twins? I understand the home field advantage aspect, but it is absolutely FREEZING up there.

As for the Metrodome, I expect them to simply implode it. That’s so weak, imploding stadiums is so played out. May I suggest an EXplosion? How badass would that be?
