Baseball to ban collisions at Home Plate

The wussification of America continues, much to the dismay of one Stacy McCain

The collision at home plate between a runner trying to score and a catcher trying to make the tag — dude, that’s baseball.

So the news that Major League Baseball is planning to ban home plate collisions has sparked outrage from fans.

No, it might not be the biggest deal in the world, and yes, baseball fans whine over silly things, like inter-league play, or realignment, but seriously, this is a silly needless rule change. And just another chapter in the war on men and on competition the Left has been engaged in for decades.

 

Liberals: Imagine a world without socccer balls

On first reading, there is NO WAY this story could be real, but, considering the many stuck on stupid ideas Liberals have………………

With the growing concern over the effects of competition in youth sports programs this summer, many Canadian soccer associations eliminated the concept of keeping score. The Soccer Association of Midlake, Ontario, however, has taken this idea one step further, and have completely removed the ball from all youth soccer games and practices.

According to Association spokesperson, Helen Dabney-Coyle, “By removing the ball, it’s absolutely impossible to say ‘this team won’ and ‘this team lost’ or ‘this child is better at soccer than that child.’”

“We want our children to grow up learning that sport is not about competition, rather it’s about using your imagination. If you imagine you’re good at soccer, then, you are.”

Dave Blount adds his two cents, which is worth far more than anything a Liberal could add

At this point you could believe the story is on the level. It isn’t easy to parody liberals more effectively than they parody themselves.

People who think like this run our public schools, explaining why students have higher self-esteem than ever but can no longer read or do math. They also vote, explaining why someone with a monstrous ego but without qualifications is president of the USA.

Hey look, I am sure this is parody, but, just give the Libs time to dig a bit deeper in their Pit of Eternal Stupidity Listen to the whole thing here

OK, college football bowl game time begins in two weeks here are your matchups

First, before we get to all the bowls, and my picks, I think the suckage from the BCS reached historic proportions this year. Northern Illinois will play in the Orange Bowl, despite a # 15 ranking, and will get plowed by Florida State. Look, I salute the Huskies for winning the MAC great! But seriously, the BCS passed on Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Oklahoma, AND Clemson to choose Northern Illinois? Of course that was not the only issue with the BCS, all those teams that were passed over were also passed over so #21 Louisville could go play my Gators in the Sugar Bowl? #21 playing #3? Yes, I know, Louisville won the Big East, well actually they finished in  a four-way tie, so they get an automatic bid. Come on! Winning the Big East is like winning an ass kicking contest against a one-legged man. Of course, the BCS rule that only two teams from the same conference can play in BCS bowls is idiotic. And boy, did the SEC get screwed by that rule. We have six of the top ten teams, but only two my Gtaors, and Alabama, who will beat Notre Dame like a rented mule, get BCS bowls? Oh, by the way, Wisconsin, who is not even ranked “won” the Big Ten so they get the Rose Bowl? Again SCREW YOU Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Oklahoma, AND Clemson!

Excuse me for a second but we now have 10 slots for the five BCS bowls, we have a ranking system. Why not use that ranking system to put the top ten teams in those games? Yes, OF COURSE! That would make too much sense, what was I thinking? I cannot wait for 2014, when we go to a four team playoff. I wonder how the powers that be will make a mockery of that?

Now, on to the bowls, which start December 15 in the GILDAN NEW MEXICO BOWL where Arizona and Nevada will hook up! Go with Zona there. Also that day We get the bowl with the most idiotic name the FAMOUS IDAHO POTATO BOWL( and you thought the old Poulan Weed-Eater Bowl was bad) with Toledo and Utah State. Go Utah State Aggies on this one.

On to December 20, when we get the SAN DIEGO COUNTY CREDIT UNION POINSETTIA BOWL (maybe I said the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl was the worst named bowl too soon?) where BYU and and San Diego Stare hook up. Go Aztces here! 

The next night we get the BEEF ‘O’ BRADY’S BOWL, in St. Petersburg Florida. With Central Florida and Ball State playing. Go UCF here! As a side note, Beef O’Bradys is now a national chain, but once it was one location, on Kings Avenue in Brandon Florida, and they had the BEST wings evah! I remember because I may, or may not have gotten sloshed there.

On to Dec 22 when we get East Carolina vs. Louisiana-Lafayette in the R+L CARRIERS NEW ORLEANS BOWL go with La Laf  here and Washington vs. No. 19 Boise State in the MAACO BOWL Boise is the good choice there

Then, Christmas Eve we get treated to the SHERATON HAWAII BOWL featuring Fresno State vs. Southern Methodist. Go Fresno here

Then, on the 26th, in case you are craving REALLY awful pizza, tune in to Western Kentucky vs. Central Michigan squaring off in the LITTLE CAEASARS BOWL! Go with Central Michigan and LOTS of Maalox here!

Next comes December 27, and three bowls to feast on. In the MILITARY BOWL – PRESENTED BY NORTHROP GRUMMAN we get San Jose State vs. Bowling Green. Go San Jose here

In the BELK BOWL, yes, they really are going with that name. Cincinati and Duke clash. If you just watch one bowl game this year, please do not let this be the one. Bearcats win

In the legendary BRIDGEPOINT EDUCATION HOLIDAY BOWL UCLA and Baylor match up in what ought to be a great one. Go with UCLA in a shootout

On to December 28th and Ohio and Louisiana-Monroe in the AdvoCare V100 INDEPENDENCE BOWL. What is advocare? How should I know. why should you care. Go with Monroe here

Then check out the RUSSELL ATHLETIC BOWL featuring Rutgers and Virginia Tech, which Rutgers will win.

Next, Minnesota and Texas Tech meet in the MEINEKE CAR CARE BOWL OF TEXAS. I think you can get a free tune up at halftime or something. Tech should take this one.

On the 29th, in the ARMED FORCES BOWL, Rice and Air Force meet. Let’s see Air Force or Rice? In the Armed Forces Bowl? Go with the team with jets and missiles

Then, in what could be a high scoring affair Syracuse and West Virginia meet up in the NEW ERA PINSTRIPE BOWL. Dumb name, good game, Mountaineers roll.

Next, if hunger strikes you watch the KRAFT FIGHT HUNGER BOWL, they were going to call it the Kraft Hopes You Starve Bowl, but that got nixed. Anyway Navy and Arizona State clash. Go with the Sun Devils.

In what ought to be a fine game at the VALERO ALAMO BOWL it is #23 Texas vs. No. 13 Oregon State. Tough call but I say Beavers rule.

Wrapping up that Saturdays slate is the BUFFALO WILD WINGS BOWL with TCU vs. Michigan State. Go with TCU, and the Asian Zing sauce with this one

Enough for now, I will post the rest of these bowl games tomorrow.

NFL reaches agreement with refs

 

Via the Blaze

The NFL and National Football League Referees Association, have finally reached an agreement, which probably means the end of lingerie-league rejects making boneheaded calls in stadium end zones.

Around midnight Thursday morning, after days of long and heated negotiations, word reached reporters that NFL-trained referees will be back on the field in time for Thursday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns.

Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL agreed to hike referees’ annual compensation from $149,000 to $173,000. The new package will also reportedly include better benefits and 401(k) plans.

Great! Now highly paid professionals can screw up calls like only highly trained professionals can!

 

I just hate when Conservatives go prude!

I like Newsbusters, I like Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters, but his “outrage” over this Ragu ad being aired during, hold you breath, the Olympics is, well silly and prudish! First the ad, which is funny

 

Now Noel’s Offendeditis outbreak

American culture took another huge step down Sunday.

During prime time coverage of the Summer Olympics, Ragú premiered a spaghetti sauce commercial featuring a young boy walking in on his parents having sex (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):

Oh good freaking grief man, are you serious?

Did I mention this aired during NBC’s Sunday night coverage of the Olympics?

Noel. really now. I hate to do this but, I have to give you a Godzilla-sized face palm for making Conservatives look like the humorless killjoys the Left makes us out to be.

 

 

Tiki Barber the walking definition of an asshole

 

After he retired from the the Giants, he ripped his former team mates, who promptly won a Super Bowl without him. Now he has taken despicability to a new low, cheating on his wife with a bimbo, leaving his wife her for a bimbo while his wife was eight months pregnant. What a prick! Way to treat your wife and kids Tiki. And, to be frank, his wife was a lot hotter than the bimbo skeleton he left her for

First the bimbo, who will one day dump Tiki for a younger, or richer guy

 

Hey what is THAT supposed to mean?

Even if Lance IS a Packers fan, and a BADGERS fan, he is OK. I mean consider his taste in blogs. I thank Lance for linking my podcast site and complimenting my “fine radio voice”. But, I must note his blog headline that reads, in part You may not believe that GatorDoug can come up with one whole thought a day. Upon reading that I might ask a question Lance often asks on his fine blog “What is that supposed to mean”. But, I know Lance is just joking, and thank him for the links. Lance is a great blogger, and his place should be one of your daily stops. AFTER you come here first of course!

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is

This tool. Buzz Bissinger? Really? He thinks college football should be banned! A piece of advice Buzz, do not dare go into an SEC town and identify yourself. Seriously. 

In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.

That’s because college football has no academic purpose. Which is why it needs to be banned. A radical solution, yes. But necessary in today’s times. Football only provides the thickest layer of distraction in an atmosphere in which colleges and universities these days are all about distraction, nursing an obsession with the social well-being of students as opposed to the obsession that they are there for the vital and single purpose of learning as much as they can to compete in the brutal realities of the global economy.

Oh will you shut the Hell up please! Who wants to bet this douchebag drinks white wine with a pinkie extended?

March Madness rolls on Sweet Sixteen

The Regional Semi-Finals start tonight, and my Gators will be taking on Marquette in the late game, check back for scores!

Syracuse survives Badger attack 64-63

C.J. Fair broke out of a scoring slump with 15 points and top-seeded Syracuse held on for a 64-63 victory over fourth-seeded Wisconsin on Thursday night in the East Regional semifinals.The Badgers had two shots at the win after Kris Joseph, a 75 percent free throw shooter, missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 18.9 seconds left and the Orange leading by a point. Jordan Taylor came down and missed a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left and Mike Bruesewitz’s toss with the rebound was off, at the buzzer.Scoop Jardine added 14 points for the Orange (34-2), who advance to play Ohio State or Cincinnati in the regional final Saturday.

Cardinals stun Spartans 57-44

The first #1 seed has fallen,and Louisville is in the Elite Eight. The Cardinals played tough defense and dominated the game. They now await the winner of Marquette and Florida, who play later tonight

Buckeyes top Bearcats 81-66

Jared Sullinger and the Ohio State Buckeyes had blown a 12-point lead and fallen behind Cincinnati in the second half of the East Region semifinals.It was time for the “cool guys” to take a seat, and let the blue-collar team take over.Sullinger scored 23 points with 11 rebounds and Ohio State turned back Cincinnati’s last charge with a 17-1 run to beat the Bearcats 81-66 on Thursday night and advance to the NCAA regional finals for the first time since 2007.

Gators top Marquette 68-58

Exactly as his coach asked him to, Bradley Beal is bringing out his A-game. His latest bit of wizardry moved Florida a win away from the Final Four, and set up Billy Donovan with a perfectly scripted matchup against his old coach and boss, Rick Pitino.Beal, the freshman with NBA written all over him, scored 21 points on 8-for-10 shooting Thursday night to help the Gators to a 68-58 victory over Marquette.Next up for No. 7 seed Florida (26-10) is a West Regional final Saturday against Louisville and Pitino, who taught ol’ Billy The Kid a lot of what he knows.

Baylor holds off Xavier 75-70

Quincy Acy picked up the slack for his roommate to help push Baylor to another regional final.The 6-foot-7 senior had a double-double on an off night for the sharpshooting Brady Heslip as the Bears moved their attack inside to beat Xavier 75-70 Friday.

Tar Heels squeak by Bobcats

The last of the little guys gave North Carolina a massive scare.Harrison Barnes scored five of his 12 points in overtime and the top-seeded Tar Heels escaped a huge upset with a 73-65 victory over No. 13 seed Ohio on Friday night in the Midwest Regional semifinals.

Wildcats too much for Hoosiers 102-90

They ran up and down the court, two storied programs going toe to toe.In the end, Kentucky was just too big, too quick, too good for Indiana.The top-seeded Wildcats moved another step closer to the only goal that matters in the Bluegrass State, shaking off a rather quiet night from freshman star Anthony Davis to pull away from the Hoosiers 102-90 in the South Region semifinals Friday.

Jayhawks pullout win over NC State

Thomas Robinson kept missing easy buckets. Tyshawn Taylor had a shooting performance he’d rather soon forget. Kansas made just two shots from outside 5 feet, and seemed to be in constant trouble against North Carolina State.Yet a smile kept creeping across Robinson’s face. Taylor spent most of the second half Friday night trying to calm down coach Bill Self, who was stomping along the Jayhawks’ sideline.

US women beat Brazil, blind refs to advance in World Cup

Hope Solo

USA! USA! USA!

DRESDEN, Germany (AP) — The Americans are moving on to the semifinals after one of the most riveting games in the history of the Women’s World Cup — beating Brazil 5-3 on penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie.

Abby Wambach tied it with a magnificent, leaping header in the 122nd minute, and goalkeeper Hope Solo denied the Brazilians again.”We believe we can win this tournament,” Wambach said. “I don’t know if you can write a better script.”
