Weekend recap

August 10, 2009

I got shivers last night. I turned on the TV to NBC and saw something magical. More on that later.

1. Tiger Woods won his 70th tournament. He’s now won two since not making the cut at his last major. I think he’s pissed now.

2. Let’s get this over with. The Red Sox played like shit and the pitching was horrendous. Save for the second game where Beckett pitched, and Lester did all right, not great. But the Yankees swept the Sox and now put the Sox back a lot of games and tied with the Rangers… and I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

3. My level of upset-ness was dropped a few notches when I turned on the television last night to see FOOTBALL BEING PLAYED! Completely forgot this was the HOF game weekend and the start of preseason football. My body quivered with anticipation as I watched about ten minutes of the Titans smacking around the Bills. What? It was the Titans and the Bills! Ten minutes is a big investment.

4. The Red Sox designated Smoltz for assignment on Friday after his shitshow of a pitching performance on Thursday. Finally. I mean this guy was once good. Not in the AL East apparently. Glad to see we have to lose eight fucking games to figure that out.

5. In honor of the football season getting on its feet again, here is the salary crunch thing from ESPN again, now with Eli Manning’s new salary! Get your bottle of scotch ready, boys!

That’s all I’ve got for you now. Look forward to ACC Coastal teams in this weeks lineup of HateFest 2009.

Weekend recap

March 30, 2009

March Madness is starting to come to an end, with only three games left. Soon we will be starting baseball season, so get excited. Here’s what happened this weekend:

1. We had some NCAA Tourney games. You know who won and who lost, because you have money riding on your bracket in which you picked Pitt to beat Louisville in the Championship game. Now your bracket is effed. Sucks to be you. UNC man-handled the Okies and UConn beat up Mizzou. The Spartans upset Louisville in a game they controlled the whole time, and Pitt finally met up with fate, after they had outrun fate since the first round. Fate always wins. (Fate is one of those words that gets weird if you say it enough. Fate fate fate fate fate. See?)

2. Tiger came back from his biggest deficit since 2000 (also tying his biggest deficit ever) to win the Bay Hill title for the sixth time. Good lord.

3. The second son of Tech legend Dell Curry has slapped us across the face, just like Stephon. Seth Curry is transferring from Liberty (eww) to Duke (“I’m gagging and vomiting at the same time… I’m gavomiting” – Scrubs). Do us a favor Seth and Dell: take the knife out of our back when we turn around.

4. Jimmie Johnson won at Martinsville. That’s close to Tech, right? Ah, screw it, I tried to include NASCAR into this blog, but never again!

5. April 5th is the official opening day for baseball. According to MLB.com, right now, first pitch is only 6 days 9 hours and 1 minute away. Getcha popcorn ready.

6. UVa beat Maryland 10-9 in men’s lacrosse on Saturday. That may not seem like a big deal, but UVa was the #1 ranked team in the country, and Maryland isn’t even ranked. I mean that would have been a huge upset. Oh yeah, and it went to 7OT making it the longest D-1 lacrosse game in NCAA history. Seven (7) friggin overtimes? Are you kidding me? I wish I was there to watch that game. Even if I despise the Terps and loathe the Hoos, that would have been an amazing game to see. Unfortunately UVa won, and they’re still real good. We don’t even have a men’s D-1 team. And our women’s D-1 team blows. Now I’m sad.

Sorry this recap is coming so late, but I had a staff meeting at 9 that lasted until now, so my bad, but not really.

Tiger’s Comeback

February 24, 2009

So today is the day that Tiger Woods makes his glorious comeback from knee surgery. On top of that he just had his first son with his Swedish model wife, Elin Nordegren. How pumped up do you think this guy is today? I’m going with “The chicken took too long laying my eggs for breakfast this morning so I ate the bitch instead” pumped.

I feel bad for Brendan Jones today. You enter a competition thinking you might have an outside chance of winning this thing and then you find out who you’re matched up against. Tiger Woods. On his first tournament back. And he’s hungry. Suffice it to say Brendan Jones is screwed.
