Once they get grown, these ho's ain't impressed with Applebee's no more.

While I fully support making money off the persecution (just or otherwise) of star athletes (I do own a Free Darko shirt after all), I thought it only appropriate to provide our merry pack of degenerates a fresh post in which to place their insights and observations on this fine day of sports. That's right sports...plural. Today's jam-packed with highly interesting College Basketball matchups in the early part of the day that should get you properly hyped for this evening's NFL Playoff tussles. If that wasn't enough, I'm going to provide you with a fun little drinking game and a snappy tune to carry with you as you go throughout the world today.

The drinking game is easy. Every time you hear a player, coach, announcer or anybody else associated with the contest you're viewing talk about the need for people to "step their game up", "step up" or any iteration of that phrase....go ahead and drink. Not coincidentally, I'm going to get you started in grand fashion right now.

You know what I hate about College Basketball? The occasional need to make it seem like Women's College Basketball is as followed, loved and as important to the masses as the Men's version of the game. I don't need College Gameday from a women's game. Not even if the Virgin Mary herself promises to drop 100 on Geno Auriemma and Connecticut.

rob said...

preach it, brother.

hofstra @ the tribe tonight from kaplan arena on the campus of the college of william & mary. the pride feel like they owe us one after the tribe's 48-47 win two weeks ago on the island.

Mark said...

I'd never root for Hofstra. Not after they turned their collective back on a nickname like Flying Dutchmen.

TJ said...

Jay Bilas comes in peace...Doris Burke leaves in pieces.

TJ said...

Seriously, that teaser clip of the NFL Countdown Rick Reilly piece was so aggravating that I now how to wait and watch the piece when it airs in 12 min...

TJ said...

Oh god, it's on now...and he's fucking rhyming like a douchey Dr. Seuss.

TJ said...

I am extremely excited for this Cuse/West Va tip. College basketball, hooray.

zoltan said...

9th Wonder y'all!

Marlin said...

If Geno coached a major mens program, he would be one of the most hated men in America. He has Bobby Knight's arrogance, Steve Lavin' smarmyness, and Bob Huggins criminality all in one douchey package.

zoltan said...

Who's down? It's free.

TJ said...

I love that Michael Rapaport is somehow involved in that.

TR said...

Word is that michael Rappaport is one of the biggest d-bags around. A lady hitter too (I think).

zoltan said...

Rappaport is a huge hiphop fan. He's directing a documentary about A Tribe Called Quest. Some of my high school friends are already planning the where/when/how we see it.

Mark said...

And he was in Zebrahead. Bad movie, great soundtrack.

Mark said...

I'm now furiously Googling this Tribe doc.

Mark said...

Just checked out that link Zoltan. I would be very much down if I didn't live in another part of the country. I've always wanted to see a show at The Knitting Factory.

Mark said...

Big time move by Triche. I mean BIG TIME.

rob said...

sitting at the end of the bar by myself, enjoying a mid-afternoon pint and watching hoops. ahhhhh.

rob said...

and someone tell me about that cuse/wvu game. that score looks like fun.

zoltan said...

The Knitting moved to Brooklyn. The new spot is a decent but not outstanding venue. I hope they worked out some of the kinks by now.

rob said...

why are the michigan state students doing the gator chomp?

zoltan said...

Only fools would go to school in Flint.

rob said...

z, mark, don't forget the mos def/k'naan austin city limits starts airing today

zoltan said...

Or wherever the hell MSU is.

rob said...

east lansing, but don't sweat the details

zoltan said...

Anything outside Ann Arbor is a wasteland, as far as this northeastern liberal snob is considered. Where's my John Tesh CD?

rob said...

is it time to talk about jamie dixon as one of the nation's best coaches? i think it is.

rob said...

tribe gets love on the msu/illinois broadcast - 'never been dancing'

zoltan said...

Sharper and Tribe football got props on ESPN.com this week too.

Whitney said...

Sorry we didn't do any commenting from WhiteejFest. Hard to comment whilst double-fist drinking. My favorite highlight was a drunken Teej giddily putting his arm inside his shirt, going empty sleeve, and calling attention to himself when his Def Leppard selection came on the jukebox. Except that it was "Back in Black" by AC/DC. High degree of unintentional comedy for the rest of us.

Whitney said...

This Heels/Wreck game is bringing it. Tech needing a Heimlich.

zoltan said...

Some schmo on Fox's NFL pregame show just compared driving through a crowd of Saints fans to a religious experience.

rob said...

sorry we didn't do any texting from daveroblunchapalooza. hard to comment when you're using chopsticks. shrimp wonton oriental noodle soup for me, flat noodles for dave. then an hour or so on the playground with his kids. bought a few used cds at the princeton record exchange. followed it up by drinking alone in a bar watching hoops. not much unintentional comedy, but a nap might be order.

rob said...

nice job, saints

rob said...

this is gonna be like an arcade game

rob said...

or video game, for the younger crowd

rob said...

drew brees is quite good at his chosen profession

Mark said...

When I watch Arizona, the only thing I root for is more points.

Mark said...

I'm genuinely surprised when Larry Fitzgerald doesn't come down with a 50/50 ball.

Geoff said...

Sorry I didn't do any texting from dinner and drink w/ Swint and friends in Nyack. I vomited 4 times at my in laws this morning while they cared for my children. The Father of the Year people have been appropriately notified.

Mark said...

The Saints are fun.

rob said...

if you bet the under on this game...what the fuck is wrong with you?

Mark said...

I think Kurt Warner just saw Jesus. And not in a good way. Wow. He got popped.

And I don't want your fucking Big Mac snack wrap, McDonald's. If I want to feel like a fat, useless fuck, well, I'll just eat a normal Big Mac.

Mark said...

I fucking hate Darnell Dockett. Eat shit you cheap fuck.

rob said...

that fade to colston is unstoppable

rob said...

ohh, leinart with the helmet on. almost as good an idea as bud light golden wheat.

Mark said...

I would like to meet the priest that's hanging out in Boogie Benson's luxury box.

Shlara said...

Looks like the Tribe is going to win.
68-60 with :40 left.

Is this a better representation of the score, Rob?

Shlara said...

73-68 Tribe.
Final.

I heart this team.

Mark said...

Manning's accuracy is super human. Great drive. Momentum grabbing, time consuming, gutsy and efficient.

Mark said...

That was clearly a helmet to helmet hit by Lewis but that's still a REALLY tough call. Sometimes your momentum just takes over.

Mark said...

Dagger.

Mark said...

Baltimore has shot itself in the foot (or is it feet at this point?) that they may be toeless.

zoltan said...

Anyone read the W&M alumni magazine yet? There's a bunch of crazy shit in there this time around.

Mark said...

Gaines Adams is dead. No reports on how he died as of yet.

rob said...

wow, that's awful. i vividly remember that game against wake when he was a man amongst boys.

zoltan said...

How do bagpipes relate to Vikings and/or Cowboys?

TR said...

We are 1 for 7, in terms of exciting playoff games. Jets-Chargers needs to get it done.

I just don't see the 'Boys making a rally happen. And Ray Edwards' agent has got to be fired up about his performance today.

TR said...

Wade Phillips has a legitimate B-cup.

TR said...

The no-huddle looks good. More teams should bust it out when their offense is struggling.

TR said...

Did not know Prince was a big Vikes fan.

Marlin said...

Love the Prince and Bud Grant split screen. How are they not in the same box together?

Marlin said...

Timmy, he is a fan of anything purple.

Marlin said...

Let the Farvlattio begin.

zoltan said...

Bud Grant and Prince have been close as two peas in a pod ever since Bud allowed Prince to purify Bud's soul in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

zoltan said...

And the anti-Favre pendulum has swung back the other way for me. He makes great plays.

rob said...

the favre/saints/katrina hype combo this week will be lethal to those that aren't prepared to handle it. battle stations, gentlemen.

zoltan said...

Favre is on steroids or HGH or something like that. He's got that weird chicken skin thing going on around his jawline that juicehead baseball players get.

zoltan said...

How is that pass incomplete? Bullschtein call.

Mark said...

Yeah, that was the last thing I thought had happened when I watched the replay(s).

TR said...

James Brown's hair in HD is spectacular.

zoltan said...

Yeah, a challenge there has the same effect as a TO, and might result in a first down without losing a TO. Not-so-amazing coaching on display today.

zoltan said...

I also like how it's perfectly OK for announcers to say that Ryan screwed up there or that Childress screwed up at the end of the first half, but it's unbelievable for the Vikings to score that last TD and rub it in the Cowboys' collective faces.

Marlin said...

As LT walked off the field you just your first shot of befuddled Norv. The jets are winning this game.

Mark said...

Darelle Revis is not human.

rob said...

i think marlin might be right

Mark said...

Jim Leonhard needs a new helmet. One that fits.

NORV.

Marlin said...

Norv is not sure who this Revis guy is.

rob said...

helluva play by sanchez

norv!

TJ said...

Fuck. Yeah.

Well done young fella.

zoltan said...

Let's not get over-confident here. Norv is Norv, but the Jets are the Jets.

Marlin said...

Anybody notice Norv out on the field breaking up the pile after the fumble? He knows that this game is slipping away.

TR said...

Running game has punched at the Bolts' D all day. Softened them up quite a bit. And the D has been very solid, especially with open field tackling.

I still remain very nervous of Rivers in the last 5 minutes.

TJ said...

I thought he was looking for his retainer?

Mark said...

San Diego's inability to run the ball is catching up to them today. The Jets don't give a shit about Tomlinson or Sproles and are defending the Chargers accordingly.

TJ said...

If it were not for the very large thing Z-man mentioned, I'd sure like how the J-e-t-ssss were playing right now...I wonder how much shit Bart Scott is saying to Rivers right now?

TJ said...

Nice throw by Sanchez.

TJ said...

Well I'll be damned...

zoltan said...

He should have done the electric slide.

Marlin said...

NORV!!!!

Mark said...

Wow. Huge hole opened by the OLine. Terrible tackle by Weddle. Great burst by Greene.

zoltan said...

Shake ya little hips. Shake ya little hips.

Mark said...

I think the mock LT finger roll was as good or better a touch than doing the Electric "Slide" (it's Glide on the LT video).

Mark said...

Point to ya mama. Point to ya mama.

TJ said...

Nice fucking kickoff, morons.

Marlin said...

Rex trying to prove he can be retarded too.

TJ said...

Kaeding is Rackers, Rackers is Kaeding.

Mark said...

Simms is right. The Jets have Rivers timed.

rob said...

enjoy the pro bowl, nate

Mark said...

Holy shit. At least try and make it look like you're not throwing the game Kaeding.

zoltan said...

My stroke is mad confident.

zoltan said...

Norv Turner is on steroids or HGH or something like that. He has that weird chicken skin thing going on around his jawline.

rob said...

no way that's a catch

zoltan said...

They changed the push-out rule, right?

rob said...

jackson kicked the challenge flag? colossally moronic.

zoltan said...

Adissally?

Marlin said...

Is that Norv's resume that he's holding?

zoltan said...

Holding!!

TJ said...

If it comes down to Ray Finkle to tie this game, I think he might miss his 4th today.

zoltan said...

This is totally different from AZ/GB last week but just as fun.

zoltan said...

We went out for dessert last night and the kid at the counter greeted us with "I'm Enkel, can I take your order?" I used a ton of restraint and didn't say "I'm Einhorn."

Marlin said...

Norv is Bud Kilmer right now. Rivers is making all the play calls.

zoltan said...

"Here come the Jets" = CBS kiss of death. Something terrible will happen to the Jets here.

rob said...

simms is right here - kicking deep was the correct call

TJ said...

Go for it Rex.

zoltan said...

I read Rexy's lips and he said "We're going for it" but I'm not sure if the punctuation mark at the end of the sentence was "!" or "?".

TJ said...

69 seconds left.

TJ said...

Fuck.

Yeah.

zoltan said...

Sanchez was just compared to Joe Namath and Joe Flacco?

Marlin said...

That was a very well practiced "congrats" from Norv.

rob said...

boomer, like his white-haired friend simms, is exactly right. the onsides kick allowed rex to go for it in that situation.

zoltan said...

Kirilenko/Sharipova on the deuce. Brilliant programming.
