Fuck it. We already got political even though we said we wouldn’t. If getting political means pinching the squid then we’d sure like to get political with Amy Holmes. When it comes to looks, you can keep your HRC. We brought it back to the gutter. You happy?
It’s not bad enough that the Chicago Sun-Times has one of the biggest douchebag hacks in the business. We’re looking at you, Mariotti. They just got punked (merked if you’re in England) by their rival, the Chicago Tribune.
The Sun-Times held a music video contest to protest the renaming of Wrigley Field by Tribune owner Sam Zell. Today college student Katie Hamilton was named the winner. The only problem is that she’s also a Tribune intern.
Hamilton and a Tribune reporter posted a thank you video this morning aimed at the Sun Times and said they would donate the $1000 prize to charity. Anyone else that wants to donate was encouraged to send money to “Tribune Totally Wins the Sun-Times’s Music Video Contest”.
Here’s the winning video along with the thank you. Suck it, Mariotti.
The only thing better would have been a guest appearance by Ozzie Guillen threatening to choke out Mariotti if Zell sells the naming rights to anyone other than Elvis Hitler who owns the Inner Town or Gold Star.
Former Knicks executive Sanders put Isiah, Dolan and the rest of the MSG crew on blast in the March issue of Elle Magazine.
“I’m not surprised [that MSG didn’t fire Isiah after her win in her lawsuit against MSG] because incompetence is rampant across the board at MSG and Cablevision. [Isiah] fits in pretty well then. They all deserve each other, Mills, Dolan, Isiah. Dolan is incompetent. Mills is incompetent. Isiah is incompetent. That’s why they’re at this point, that’s why there was a lawsuit, that’s why there was a trial, that’s why they allowed all their dirty laundry to be aired.”
Sanders continued on to say that NBA Commissioner David Stern is aware of Isiah’s reputation and will pressure the Knicks to do something about it after the season.
Clearly Sanders underestimates Dolan’s stubbornness and stupidity. Stern only cares about fixing playoff series and making sure players dress right.
I’ll be eternally grateful to Trent Dilfer for leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl but you don’t take a man’s MVP award like that. Especially a man who’s good with butterfly knives and getaway vehicles.
One would think that would be enough to solidify one’s position as QB but one would be wrong. Dilfer was bounced out of town in favor of Elvis Grbac. We all know how that went.
It’s been six years and Dilfer’s still a little pissed.
“I have absolutely zero desire to talk to Brian Billick … “Those guys will go to their graves swearing to God that we would have won two, three Super Bowls if they would have kept me. I’m not going to say that; I have no idea. But I sure would have liked the chance to face the challenge. I would have loved that opportunity.”
“[Billick] grossly misunderstood the talent of that football team, myself specifically.”
At least he’s not bitter.
Offensive genius Brian Billick responded,
“I have huge respect for Trent,” Billick said. “I can understand why this is something that he doesn’t want to let go. I don’t know if there is anything that I’m ever going to be able to say or do to rectify it.”
Replacing Dilfer with Grbac was wrong. Billick might as well have told Dilfer to shit on his hand and slap himself in the face. He finally got it right after subjecting Charm City to assclowns such as Stoney Case and Scott Mitchell and of course he had to mess it up. He doesn’t deserve it but it looks like he’s struck gold again with Kyle Boller. Oh wait…
Maybe Dilfer’s pissed at the wrong person. I think Dilfer’s ouster was really a Machiavellian master stroke by Ray Lewis who was pissed that he didn’t get Super Bowl MVP. Yeah that’s it.
One weekend down. Spurs are getting relegated and Sunderland’s gonna win the league. Who says there’s no balance in the Premier League? Two roundups in one week. It’s like a gang sweep in LA except no innocents are beaten unless you count Spuds fans.
Yay! Wait…I Like Stuff but These are Things
It’s not enough that Posh Spice annoys us with her excessive preening and desperation for media attention. Now she’s started a blog and “writes” like a valley girl from an 80s movie.
Hope you are all well? Well we have finally unpacked our boxes and I am loving our new house – it is totally major! … The boys are really looking forward to starting their new school so we’ve got to make sure they are all kitted out with new schoolbags and pencil cases – you remember what it’s like going back to school, you’ve got to have a new EVERYTHING!
David and myself attended a launch last week in Bel Air (very swish) for the launch of our latest fragrance Intimately Beckham … I’m also just starting work on my new dVb denim collection – I’m really excited about starting the next project – it’s going to be totally major so keep your eyes open for that.
I’m so totally dumber for having read that.
I didn’t have to share that find but what good is pain if you can’t share it?
McClaren: Top Formula One Team or Assclown Manager
I’ll take B for 1000.
Steve McClaren shouldn’t feel bad. It’s not his fault that the FA couldn’t choose a decent England manager if the lives of the English people depended on it. Someone as incompetent as him never should have been put in the position of managing a national team let alone a chip shop. Nothing says competence and skill like having a fan run on the field, tear his season ticket up and throw it at you.
McClaren banished David Beckham from the national squad only to have him inspire Real Madrid to a La Liga title and look like a world beater. He was forced to go crawling back and beg Beckham to rejoin the team. One would think he would have learned from that experience but…
Fast forward to Jamie Carragher. He’s been left in the cold in favor of Ledley King and Wes Brown. One would be hard pressed to find a number of fans who would rate him below those two donkeys.
Carragher, rightfully sick over how he has been treated, declared he was finished with international football. A couple injuries later, McClown has been forced to drop to his knees and beg him to come back. He would be right to tell McClown where to stick it.
It’s not all doom and gloom so buck up, England! Sol Campbell’s getting a recall.
Toilet Seat Thieves Don’t Cut It Anymore
Chelsea have reportedly landed Brazilian right back Daniel Alves from Sevilla for over £21.5m. He was held out of Sevilla’s Champions League qualifier with AEK Athens yesterday so that he would not be cup-tied in case he made the move to Chelsea or another Champions League team like Real Madrid.
If the reports are true, Chelsea will have a world class right back and can banish toilet seat thief Glen Johnson to the salt mines for his shockingly awful play.
“You’re just a fat Eddie Murphy” for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink? Brilliant.
It’s Worse Than Opening The Ark of the Covenant
