[NJ] The Peyton Manning pursuit is in the past. Now, it’s on to Tim Tebow. And the Jets are in the race. Yes, the Jets have “real” interest in the Broncos quarterback, according to a person with knowledge of the team’s thinking. That person requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak for the team. Tebow is expected to be available via trade after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning today. ESPN reported the Jets have “discussed” trading for Tebow, and the person said the Jets are indeed one of the teams in play.

Hahahaha… please, please, please let this be a long, drawn out process where the Jets go back and forth with the Broncos, but fail to land Teabow. Because while a Jesus-led Jets team would be hilarious, it wouldn’t be as funny as listening to their front office try to throw their support behind Sanchize after chasing another QB for the second time in one off-season. There’s not a PR man on the planet that could spin a “we still believe in our current QB and feel confident moving forward with him” statement after making a serious run at Teabow. I mean, whether they get Timmy or not, you pretty much have to trade Sanchez away, right? No way he could show his face in the locker room now.

The abrupt end to the season still stings a bit, but when you realize that the Yankees are blazing trails and building championship caliber teams in ways no one had previously imagined, it does ease the pain a little. I believe in you Cash (and cash), even if all the others around the league think you’re crazy. Keep on keepin’ on, and hopefully this philosophy of spending money to attain and retain really, really, really, really, ridiculously good players will pay off one day. 


I can’t remember the last time I was this mad about a baseball game that I didn’t play in. It wasn’t so much that they lost as how they lost. Shitting the bed with the bases loaded. Blowing the perfect chance to shut Fat-Verde up. For my own therapeutic reasons, I have to make a list of all the goats of the game. So, in no particular order, this is who I blame for the loss:   (more…)

I don’t know if you guys heard this or not, but we had an earthquake yesterday. I already forgot about it by about 5 PM, but they were still talking about it on the 10:00 news. I still don’t see what the big deal was, but in honor of our close call with certain doom, here are some dames from a few earthquake movies. 8/23/11 – Never Forget.

Keep on keepin’ on for the answers (more…)

What. The. Fuck. Get your shit together lady. The horse tripped, so what? Why the hell are you yelling at your family to run like it’s going to fucking explode? It’s a horse, not a tanker truck… and this isn’t a Michael Bay movie, it’s Central Park. There is nothing I wanted more than to see that horse get up and put it’s horseshoe right through this lady’s skull. You’re visiting New York City. If you’re going to lose your shit over Mr. Ed taking a digger, you should just pack your bags and go home now because your vacation is only going down hill from there. Just wait until you hop on the subway and bump into bloody loco, or some crazy lady flushing her beav, or (God Forbid) you run into a wild pack of hipsters. That’s when shit’s gonna get real. I’d just cash out and head back to whatever fly-over state you came from.

But wait… There’s a follow up video. Apparently the cabbie got the horse up and sent him right back to the end of the line, and crazy Midwestern lady was none to pleased. Video after the jump. (more…)

[NYDailyNews]  It wasn’t just gay marriage and a property tax cap that concerned state lawmakers in the final days of the legislative session. There were also sippy cups. The Legislature, for the second year in a row, approved a measure requiring baby bottles and sippy cups to have warning labels about the dangers of childhood tooth decay.

The sippy cup bill was among more than 400 approved by the Senate and Assembly in the final, frantic days of the legislative session. Many dealt with local concerns like the renewal of a city’s or county’s sales tax. Others tackled such far-flung topics as hookah sales – and solar-powered trash compactors. Sen. George Maziarz (R-Buffalo) took a stab at history with a bill creating the War of 1812 200th Anniversary Commemoration Commission.

Maziarz also took out the trash – literally – with a bill requiring solar-powered, trash-compacting garbage cans at four state parks, including Riverbank in Manhattan and Roberto Clemente in the Bronx. Sen. Martin Golden, a Brooklyn Republican, pushed a bill prohibiting the sale of hookahs, shisha tobacco and water pipes to minors.

Sen. Adriano Espaillat (D-Manhattan) and Assemblyman Nelson Castro (D-Bronx) teamed up to pass the so-called Nutcracker Bill, which stiffens penalties for barbershops and bodegas caught selling the homemade alcoholic drink to minors. Assemblyman Gary Pretlow (D-Westchester) and state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) tried to help the state’s struggling race tracks by sponsoring a bill to let them offer free tickets as promotional giveaways.

All of the bills are now headed to Gov. Cuomo’s desk.

Here’s a thought: if our country lasts a thousand years, we’d still have lawmakers, right? Like, people would still be writing bills and talking about them at Capitol Hill and Congress would vote on them, etc. So, a thousand years from now, do you think there would be a law for every single aspect of life?  (more…)

Just thought this was interesting.  Check out the full story for individual comparisons.  No, it doesn’t explain why the Yankees win more than Los Mets.  They also gotta pitch & their opponents get to swing too.   (more…)
