The Muppets, yall
This movie was amazing. I mean, absolutely hilarious. I’ve been called an asshole by many people, and that’s not necessarily that wrong most of the times. So if even someone like me: a sarcastic, possibly cynical asshole tells you that this movie was a hilarious, nostalgic, heartwarming 2 hours of awesome, you should listen. Go see this movie. If I’m wrong, I owe you a beer....

Notre Dame just lost to Stanford 28-14. A late TD made it look better than it was. The 1st half was absolutely miserable. Penalties, turnovers, inability to get plays off, everything that has happened bad during ND games happened in full form. Rees got banged up on a big hit, leading to Kelly putting Hendrix in. This led to some questions from folks, but whatever, if that’s who he wanted to...

Well after an insane set of games last week, we come to “rivalry week” with all eyes on the SEC as they sit 1-2-3 in the BCS and a huge game between LSU and Arkansas on Friday. That game being Friday, and the last Lone Star Showdown being Thursday, forced an early set of picks. This could lead to lines that will change by Saturday, but as always, pick against the lines as listed here...

Chaos reigned last week, kicking off with Oklahoma State blowing any shot at the title on Friday night to Iowa State in a true gong show of a game. There was plenty of chicanery to be had in the slate we picked as well. Let’s see how we did, shall we? Boston College @ Notre Dame (-24.5) Pick: BC Result: 16-14 ND, WIN I hate this team. This game was absolutely miserable. The D did what they...
This should come as no surprised, but I’ve quit the Spurs NBA2k12 thing. The lockout just made me angry, and we all knew I wasn’t gonna keep up with it from the get go. Plus, I don’t think anyone read them anyway. Carry on. miss u NBA
College Football 2k11 Week 12 Picks
At this point in the year, we are all looking at two teams. If Okie State and LSU can win out, they will play for the shiny ball. If one loses, a few teams will have arguments for a shot at the unscathed. If both lose? Well, we will have quite a fun situation, won’t we. Anyway, to this week’s slate. Record for Season to date: 31-23-3 (54%) Boston College @ Notre Dame (-24.5) Pick:...

Once again, I did not see a ton of the games due to being at the ND-Maryland game in DC, and the tailgating that ensued. Therefore, most of my knowledge is based on highlights. Either way, picks are picks. To judgment. Maryland “@” Notre Dame (-21) (FedEx Field in Washington, D.C.) Pick: ND Result: 45-21 ND, WIN This was a good old fashioned whooping. Not much else to say. ND did pretty much...

therodbenson: “Rod: Right now, the lockout has no meaning because no one is feeling any pain. The two sides are so far apart but there is no urgency now. The NBA, as it always does, proposed to change rules on ‘blood’ issues such as guaranteed contracts, a hard cap and getting back escrow money which the… Good read from the Boom Tho king

There’s been a whole lot of College Football news this week, with none of it relating to football itself. Many people have written great pieces on the horrible situation at Penn State, I don’t plan to. I’m here because I love sports, and sports are supposed to be fun. In honor of that, we’re going jumbo sized this week. Sure picking 5 games is fun, but this week if you...
College Football Week 10 Results
Sadly this weekend I missed a lot of the games. A very good friend (actually my oldest friend now that I think about it) got married this weekend, breaking the cardinal rule of life. But things had to be done, and I missed a lot of football. Therefore the cutting edge, world-class analysis you usually get may be light this week. None of you will notice any change. Notre Dame (-14) @ Wake...
Eddie Mac's Spurs 2k12: 11/7
San Antonio Spurs: 98 @ Golden State Warriors: 95 Record: 1-2 The Spurs are finally starting to figure things out (like icon passing only) as they pick up their first win of the year. Manu took home player of the game with 29-4-4 and Tim Duncan put up a big 20 and 8 game. Monta Ellis did all he could, putting up 38 points and 9 dimes, but it just wasn’t enough. The Spurs shot 52% from the...
Eddie Mac’s Spurs 2k12: 11/4
Dallas Mavericks: 101 @ San Antonio Spurs:76 Record: 0-2 Sorry this is late, I played the game on Friday but I didn’t get a chance to post this before I went out. This will not be the last time this happens during this exercise. My bad. San Antonio hosted the (grumble) defending champs on Friday Night, and their leader was miserable. Turnovers killed the Spurs in this game. 17...
samsplace asked: Have you BEEN to Texas? A solid two day drive of nothing but flat, barren scrub grass desert. No radio stations, no cities, nothing. Godforsaken country. We never should have stolen it from Mexico. I say we give it back.
College Football 2k11 Week 10 Picks
There are several interesting games this week, the problem is they are all late kickoffs and only one game is really going to attract attention. That’s right, Oregon @ Washington is gonna be a barnburner. Oh, not that one? I’m sorry, that was a terrible joke and I’m ashamed. Luckily my punishment is already sentenced because I have to go to a wedding this Saturday. If you...
College Football Week 9 Results
Navy @ Notre Dame (-21) Pick: Navy Result: 56-14 ND, LOSS Sometimes being wrong is awesome. ND scored 7 rushing TDs in an absolute beatdown. The D played strong and the offense couldn’t be stopped. If only ND played like this every week. #6 Stanford (-8) @ USC Pick: Stanford Result: 56-48 Stanford (3OT), PUSH Wow, this game was insane. Points were scored in bunches until USC decided ...
Eddie Mac's Spurs 2k12: 11/2
Game 1: Milwaukee Bucks: 89 @ San Antonio Spurs: 82 Record: 0-1 I’ve decided to, as long as I remember to, play through the Spurs season on the days when they should be actually playing. Sadly, there is no real season for the foreseeable future, so this may be amusing. It’s also worth noting that since I typically only play My Player, I’m horrible at full team games. Anyway,...
