Happy New Year!!!

Well... maybe not for you, fat-faced Mike Martz:


Couldn't happen to a more beloved (by HCM.com) person.


A Christmas Miracle

Let me tell you the story of a disillusioned gentleman who during the holiday season had been horribly burned by a couple of "friends", to the tune of being lied to, forced to stand in the freezing snow, and miss a quarter of football (not to mention the 12th Man Flag raising), all the while this disillusioned gentleman's "friends" sat comfortably in their car drinking spirits and beers... probably laughing at the disillusioned gentleman's poor fortune (pun intended).

Needless to say this disillusioned gentleman felt betrayed, disrespected, and most importantly hurt. He had lost most of his faith in humanity not to mention friendship.

And then... a Christmas miracle... he was bestowed a Christmas gift by one of these "friends", the likes of which could only be dreamed (or dreamt (or whatever)):

The pain is still there. Who knows if it will ever go away... but now the healing process can begin.

Merry Christmas... EVERYONE!!!

McRib. Out.

Well the McRib has come and gone... but what a magical ride we all had.

I think we can all look back in fondness at the memories we shared with the McRib.

My favorites:

- Sean almost puking himself trying to put down 5, and barely making it to 3 1/2.
- Yours truly putting down 4 with no problems.
- Pete (as in O'brien) making up a fake personal challenge because time has passed him by.
- The list is endless...

Special thanks go out to Ronald McDonald and the rest of the shit lickers at Mickey D's. Thanks for the month of greatness. See ya next time you bring the sum bitch back.

One last look:

"God damn you McRib"

Happy Holidays from HCM

Happy Holidays!

What would all of you Mustacheers like for Christmas this year?

I want a Nintendo Wii and 45 million dollars.... and the Sonics back.

What about you losers?

Local High School Stripped of Basketball Championship Due to Use of Wolfman

BEACONTOWN – In a move that had been rumored for weeks, the Beacontown High School Beavers have been stripped of their Conference Championship. “It’s a shame that it had to be done,” said conference chairman Steve Nordick, “But it really wasn’t fair to the rest of the teams. The reason being, of course, that Beacontown had a wolfman playing point guard.” The werewolf player, Scott Howard, has been retroactively suspended, causing all of his team's wins to be voided. “Look, it would be one thing if wolfmen weren’t fantastic at basketball,” said Nordick, “But the fact is that they are. Wolfmen can steal the ball at will and do any number of reverse slam dunks. Scott Howard was tearing other teams apart on the court. No, literally. 38 opposing players suffered deep lacerations.”
Apparently the idea of suspending Howard was not a new one to Beacontown coach Bobby Finstock. “I had considered suspending him due to some off the court stuff. But he just played too damn well for me to do it. I mean he is a werewolf.” Finstock is most likely referring to one of two incidents involving the teenage wolf. The first involved Howard cruising the streets of Beacontown on top of Rupert “Stiles” Stilinski’s van doing multiple back-flips and prolonged handstands. Stilinski is Howard’s best friend, and a local drug dealer. The other issue was a scuffle between Howard and an opposing player at a school dance that took place shortly after the werewolf led a choreographed dance that his classmates had rehearsed for weeks. “I knew I shouldn’t have allowed him to act out like that,” laments Finstock, “It’s just that he was so much better as a wolf. I mean he was pitiful when he was a human. He would just run around the court clapping a lot and jumping all over his teammates. Not to mention all the lane violations he would get called for when he’d jump over the free throw line on his foul shots.”
Scott Howard could not be reached for comment. It is likely that at press time he is driving fast cars and hanging around attractive girls, activities that are very common for werewolves.


I know we've been on a movie kick lately...

but, I know there are a few cominc book fans on here, and I haven't this exicted about a trailer in a while:

Wolverine: Origins

A couple of concerns...

The comics took around 20 or 30 years to explain Logan's past, and (although I've regretably stopped reading comics), I'm still not sure they've completely explained it. So we'll see how the movie does it in 2 to 3 hours.

No concern about our boy Tim Riggins playing Gambit... but he shouldn't be as old as Wolverine... hopefully this part is closer to the present. Gambit woudl fit in nicely with a role in the next X-Men film, rumore to be skewered towards the younger X-Men and helmed by Josh Schwartz (The OC, Gossip Girl, Chuck)... either way... I'm rambling... but this trailer looks awesome.

Follow up on Delgo...

The Delgo Experience:

After reporting (or stealing the report off another website) about the tragic failure of the holiday epic, "Delgo", I felt like I owed it to myself to watch this trainwreck myself. Or in the immortal words of one Mike Awesome: this was one party, I was NOT gonna miss!

Luckily, fellow HCMer Erik was also ready to party with Delgo. Here are the photos that document our journey (which was unfortunately on par with the level of excitement experienced in Delgo).

Here's the movie poster. Innocent enough. That's Delgo in the middle voiced by wrestling writer Freddie Prinze, Jr., with his love interest Jennifer Love Hewett on his right. Maybe they were banking on the I Know What You Did Last Summer fanbase to pack the theaters as a chance to see a reunion of sorts. I don't know. Oh, and that other character is Delgo's gay friend Filho, voiced by Chris Kattan. Quite a stretch.

The stage was set for movie magic! And at least one patron was pretty jazzed to say the least!

Maximum Theater Occupancy

Actual Theater Occupancy. (seriously).

Look, I'll spare you any plot details, but just think Star Wars meets Lord of The Rings meets The Snorks meets Fecal Matter.

In actuality, the movie isn't THAT bad. It just isn't anywhere near good. I even chuckled two or three times. I'm sure there are kids out there who would enjoy this. Stupid kids. Looks like a marketing budget gone wrong (or missing).

Sorry, Delgo. At least you've been immortalized on HenryCottosMustache.com
So ya got that going for you... which is nice.

Happy Holidays everyone... even you Delgo.



Congrats to Big Walt. He's our only Pro-Bowler!


Now let's just root for an injury (non-career threatening) to Cooley or Witten, cuz I gotta imagine Carlson is the first alternate there.

Trufant... he'll need a few injuries I'm guessing.



I know we don't want this to become a link-fest, but this was... awesome:

These waves are his.

Season's Greetings!!!

Here's a heart warming holiday story of inspiration and a lesson to all the little Mustacheers out there... always believe and never give up:


Wow. Didn't see that coming.


Walter Jones

Mike Sando wrote a really cool little piece on Walter Jones in his NFC West blog on ESPN:


I want to apologize for being harsh on Walter this season. And while I still feel his overall play is slipping, it's through no fault of his. Players get older, that's just how it goes. Anyway... Walter Jones will always be the man, and probably deserves to go up there next to Steve Largent at Qwest. I ain't talkin' ring of honor (which is cool)... I'm talking retired number. #80 and the #71.


New Survey (vote on the right)

If the season ended today the Hawks would get the number 3 pick in this years draft. Lets take Rick Mirer out of the equation and assume that whoever we draft will be a pro-bowler. Now don't think of any person in particular, just think of what position we need the largest upgrade at. We will forward the results on to Tim.


At least he spells it right!!

This cracked me up too...

A little blurb underneath a picture accompanying a story about kicker Morten AndersEn's retirement:

"Morten Andersen cited old knees and lack of a contract Monday when announcing his retirement in his native Denmark."


I'd like to announce my retirement from the NFL as well, much like Morten, it's due to the lack of a contract. Although, now that I think about it, I'd be prepared to come out of retirement as soon as a contract presents itself.

Well this cheered me up...

The title on this post from cnnsi: Here!

I have no ill feelings towards McCallister, but that's classic.


Really thought we had 'em there. That was 3 great quarters and one stinker.

Sort of bugs me that the press is talking about the "gutsy" performance from teh injury depleted Patriots. We played one starting O-lineman and he was out of position. Oh well...

Good news is, I've acquired the services of a special guest poster that will be taking a look at the NFL draft over the next couple of months. This guy is legit. If you need more proof just take a look at this picture at the bottom of this site. That's him.

Also, would like to welcome our newest Mustacheer, named Fu. Looks like a dude I went to highschool with. I'm guessing that profile pic is him standing outside the window of the room you're in right now. Whatever it is... come on in... it looks cold outside. Maybe try a post or two. We're having a soopar time.


How'd everyone else's weekend go?


I Love This Man

I'm not sure if this story is making it's way around the local airwaves, so it might be old news to all of you. Anyhow, I was watching PTI today and they had a story about Hasselbeck going to school with a 6th grader earlier this week. One of the girls in the class asked him if he thought girls would ever be able to play in the NFL. Hasselbeck responded with this:

"Sure, girls could play in the NFL, girls can definitely play in the NFL ... Ben Roethlisberger plays in the NFL."

Oh snap!

Speaking of Movies with Awesome Umpires

Looks like the Wakamatsu has finished putting together his staff. Here is all you need to know about our new 3rd Base Coach: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0385640

The Juice is no longer loose

Looks like we'll have to wait at least 15 more years for Naked Gun 444 1/4:


So long Juice. You had a good run.


Z-Man Makes a Splash

He just signed Russell Branyan! Obviously Zduriencik played a lot of High Heat Baseball 2002, because Branyan always killed it on that game.

Pro Bowl

I just read the fan votes for the Pro Bowl so far, and not surprisingly, there isn't a Seahawk listed in the the top 5 for any position. Ryan Plackemeir however is currently second in fan voting for NFC punters. So that was a nice kick in the junk.

Raises an interesting question though... will we even have a Pro Bowler this year? Do we even deserve one?

Without doing any (ZERO) research, I'm having a tough time coming up with someone.

Special Teams:

Mare? I think he'd need to have at least 1 high profile kick this year to get any conisderation. Too many great return men for Wilson to get a look, and I don't even know who they'd name as our "Special Teams" player.


No one even comes close. Well, maybe Carlson. But there are some pretty high profile TE's in the NFC so I doubt he makes it. Future though! RB's have been decent but splitting time doesn't help. Weaver's been hurt too much, and every one else has pretty much eaten it.


I still say Trufant is an elite DB, but the INT's aren't there this year to pump his rep up. The LB's have all played down and LeeeeeeeeRoy Hill still doesn't get respect.

I think we're gonna get shut out.

Any thoughts Mustacheers?



So not sure if any of you have heard, but Plaxico Buress shot himself in the leg... WHAT'S THAT ALL ABOUT!?!?!

But, seriously... I got nothing.

The good news is we're under 50 days away from the Season 5 premier of Lost. Which means my Lost Recaps will be the weekly highlight of the sports and ENTERTAINMENT site. I've got a list of questions I'd like to see answered before the show ends next season, and I'll try and have that posted within the next few weeks. Pins and needles, I know.

Anyway.... How've you been?
