Stoppage Time

T. Who?
It was enjoyable to watch yet another chapter in T.O.’s book, “How to Dismantle a Team” last night. Owens only caught 3 balls, and none of them were very meaningful, but the cameras caught him yelling at just about everybody on the sidelines … I bet Parcels asked Owens’s doctor to up the dosage just in case. Funny how T.O. has the “balls” to yell at everybody on his team EXCEPT for Parcels. I bet coach was secretly hoping that T.O. would’ve approached him, because I bet Parcels would’ve given him a Stone Cold Stunner for his efforts. High comedy! And if you didn’t catch it, T.O. threw his quarterback under the bus at the press conference afterwards, saying something to the effect of “You guys saw the game …. I wasn’t the one pulling the trigger.” Can’t wait until T.O. accuses Bledsoe of being gay. I sincerely hope that the Cowboys spiral downward because of this one.

Let’s See Who Else I can Offend ...
I was at the bar watching the Eagles game last night, and two people (in their early 20’s) walked in with T.O. jerseys. Seriously, guys, what was your motivation? You walk into a Philly bar with those jerseys on, you are probably looking for a fight … thankfully, (A) the people at the bar totally ignored them, and (B) the Eagles won. I did wonder out loud if the kid had run out to purchase an Eric Stahl jersey after the Carolina Hurricanes won the cup, or if he had a John Garland White Sox jersey, but got rid of it because they didn’t make the playoffs this season. What a tool.

What’s The Deal?
Are air-conditioning and heater repair people just like the cable people? The reason I ask this is because I had to take off work today to wait for the repair guy to give my heater a check-up … sure, this task only takes about 20 minutes or so, HOWEVER the repair guy said he would be at my house sometime between 11 and 4. Great, thanks for ruining the middle part of my day, dickhead. Not that I don’t mind staying home from work, but I can’t really go anywhere, because I gotta wait for the guy with plumber’s butt to fondle my heater.

F the Yankees
By the way, congrats to the Detroit Tigers for eliminating the most despicable team in sports, the New York Yankees. Anytime I can see Steinbrenner upset, it’s a wonderful moment. Plus, it is good to see Jim Leyland doing a great job as manager for Detroit, because the Phillies ignored him when he openly asked to manage the ball club. Now, Steinbrenner is panicking, and will probably fire the only guy on that team that is likeable… Joe Torre. Good work, boss. Maybe you should just up the payroll to $300 million and get it over with, you jerk.

Owens' new children's book has a new title: "Little T Learns to Share the Blame."

Wearing T.O. jerseys in PHL: Sorry, Karl, but it's just not right to make fun of the mentally handicapped like that.

Did the HVAC guy leave an ass dent in your car, too?

Yankees: Sorry, but they're not more despicable than Notre Dame or the Cowboys. Proof: the only unlikeable guys on that team (for non-Boston fans) are Steinbrenner, A-Rod, Johnson, and Sheffield.

As a Phillies fan, I refuse to run down an owner who demands results for his investment. Sure, Steinbrenner spends a lot, but only two other top 10 payroll teams made the playoffs this year. And one of them is out.

The A's and Twins both spent half of Boston's budget and won their divisions, while the Red Sox finished 3rd. It's about management, not just money.

That said, Yankee haters should love watching Piniella managing A-Rod and Sheffield. Esp. if he keeps Bowa as a coach. Every day will be Fireworks Night.

Smokin - well said!

Fair Maiden - I don't think I have ever been compared to Andy Rooney ... thanks?

IAM - Having Pinella in New York will be exciting just to see when he strangles A-Rod and Sheffield.

Jeff - I still hate the Yankees...probably because I'm a little jealous of all the success.

iamunstoppable said...

i still have a chubby from the Tigers win.

more games this week will not help this...

Steph said...

I loathe and detest waiting around for fucking repair people.
Why the hell can't they give an exact time?
Surely they know how long each job will roughly take.
Asshats the lot of em.

Los said...

Steph - actually, the repair person worked on my heater form 1 1/2 hours.

Los: Just listened to episode 2 this morning. I know, but I have to be alone to listen to it. My kid wouldn't let me hear the whole thing. You told a joke but Steve spoke towards the end. I need this punchline...What is a vagina?

Christina_the_wench said...

Baseball is almost over, right? RIGHT? Dear god, RIGHTTTTTTTTTTT???

iamunstoppable said...

hold your tongue wench..
come to the darkside, enjoy the base-a-ball.

Los said...

Fair-Maiden - What is a Vagina? A box a dick comes (cums) in.

Christina - Life is good, the Yankees are in shambles!

IAM - Your mind control powers can't be weakening, can they?

Christina_the_wench said...

iam - don't make me check your ass into the boards. ;) And, NEVER!

Fairmaiden327 said...

Christina: At least YOU are not referred to as a whench. Consider yourself lucky babe.

I hate waiting on anyone..Let alone the repair peeps. I did discover that if you want it done right....YOU have to be there to supervise them.

I try to have some activity planned at home that I can do while supervising the "guy" doing the "thing"...such as throwing out and organizing my invoices, bank statements, and such...easy to stop and start kind of project...

THANK god for bas-a -ball almost over...Thank you for FOOTBALL!!! WHOOO HOOO!

I can't beleive you didn't see it coming when TO did his Press confrence...I saw that one "CURCHUNK CUR CHUNK...OH let me get the bus and back it up over you again!"

Los said...

Superstar - TO is like TNT, and the Cowboys are like an old building ready to implode. Good thing Jerry Jones is the owner ... I'm just surprised he beat out the owner of the Redskins for TO.

Stone Cold Stunner isn't a bad idea. Maybe T.O. should make the crossover to the WWE. He certainly has the personality for it.
