Cougs get screwed

Anyone lucky enough to get OSN (Oregon University's network, i dunno... it's top notch stuff by the way, I'm excited to watch their Rose Bowl Recap live from Padadena) just saw the Cougs get royally screwed.

We... yeah WE, I went to school there. WE just got absolutely dicked over by some inept referees on a judgement call. Casto won the game with a lay in. .3 seconds left. I celebrate much like the Cougs. Only the refs call a technical foul for a kid who jumped a little too high off the bench and onto the court. Imagine my surprise when I saw Tajuan "I don't miss threes and have 19 years of eligibility" Porter calmly step to the line and tie the game with free throws. (See I turned the volume off because I was tired of listening to the two homer shit heads who were trying to call the game).

We end up losing in Double OT.

It was the worst officiating move I'd seen since the Superbowl.

I'm still shaking with rage. Actually hard to type. And this is about 30 minutes after the event. I don't think I should watch sports anymore.

Be forewarned. If you attempt to talk "smack" on this thread about this situation, be prepared to fight me the next time you see me.



It's in the hole!!!!

#2 Caddyshack

I could go on and on about how great this movie and Lacey Underall's tits were... but I'll just say this:

"If I kill all the golfers on this course they're gonna lock me up and throw away the key"

Favorite parts go!

SLAM! Energy Drink.

I just saw a commercial for yet another energy drink, it was called Slam! What makes this drink stand out is that it's spokesman is .....

Josh Brown!


I don't know what's more pathetic, that Joshy-poo is repping some 3rd-rate energy drink, or the fact that a company thought it would be a good idea to make the kicker on the worst team in the NFL their spokesman.

Here's a link to their website, it looks pretty classy. By the way, I forgot to mention that the other "athletes" that appear on their commercial are Matt Harpring, an aged golfer I've never heard of, and what appears to be a softball player (whether or not she's supposed to be famous was unclear to me).

Anyway, good work Josh. I guess this proves that you made the right call by signing with the Rams.


NFL Picks Week 16

Sorry diehards, I know I'm posting these picks a little later than usual, but I just flew in from Seattle. Oh what, you're expecting me to say, "And boy are my arms tired?" Stop making cheap jokes, alright pal? There's no place for them here, I'm strictly high-brow, I'm like the Dennis Miller of the internet. Ok, I just checked, and it turns out Dennis Miller has a website, so I guess he's the Dennis Miller of the internet. But I'm close enough right? Or was that joke itself too high-brow for you?

Morning Games

Buffalo @ Atlanta

I really want to watch this game. Then again, I also saw Delgo in theatres, so ...

Falcons 24-13

Kansas City @ Cincinnati

At this point does anybody expect the Bengals to actually win a game in the playoffs? I'll tell ya what, I do! So that was a stupid question.

Bengals 28-10

Oakland @ Cleveland

I'd say that this is going to be a crappy game, but Cleveland has made a habit of putting on great shows against other shitty teams, and Oakland has recently won two road games in the final minute. So, chances are this one gets crrrrrrraaaaazzy! Or ends up real poopy (I'd already used crappy and shitty).

Browns 35-34

Seattle @ Green Bay

So the Hawks have hit rock bottom right? Please? Please tell me it can't get worse than that. Some good news, Green Bay also lost to Tampa this year, so, I guess we have a shot right?

Seahawks 24-23

Baltimore @ Pittsburgh

I'm pretty sure these teams have played 9 times in the last 2 seasons. I'm not sure if it's a scheduling anomaly or what, but I just checked, and sure enough ... 9 times. Well ya know what they say: "Fool me 8 times shame on the Ravens."

Steelers 23-20

Houston @ Miami

Whoever loses this one is out of playoff contention. And to be honest, whoever wins is probably still out of playoff conetention, but don't tell them that. Seriously, they have no idea how the playoffs work.

Dolphins 27-20

Jacksonville @ New England

I'm now convinced that the Patriots really aren't good. But if you've been paying attention to my picks for the last month or so (just kidding, I know you have) I definitely don't think the Jags are good. So, I guess the Patriots are the not good team I'm going with here.

Patriots 26-17

Tampa Bay @ New Orleans

Can anybody truly know what to expect from the explosive Josh Freeman and the Bucs lockdown D? I mean, all bets are off right? Even still, I think I'll pick the Saints because they still need to clinch the 1 seed.

Saints 31-14

Carolina @ New York Giants

So Delhomme sits and the Panthers win, coincidence? Well that depends, I mean if you want to get into a meta-physical debate about whether or not life is just a series of random events, or if we indeed all have our own destinies than that's fine. But in this case, no, it was no coincidence, Delhomme sucks.

Giants 28-18

Afternoon Games

Detroit @ San Francisco

Who's ready for an inspired performance from the Lions? Me! Who's not? Bateman. Sorry Bobby.

Lions 19-17

St. Louis @ Arizona

The Rams are now in sole possession of the worst record in the league, and if I know them like I think I do, they're not gonna let that slip away. In fact, why don't they quit beating around the bush and just rest their starters? They could be like a team that already clinched a playoff spot, except exactly the opposite.

Cardinals 35-13

New York Jets @ Indianapolis

Word on the street is that Rex Ryan will send relentless blitzes at Peyton Manning, forcing Jim Caldwell to sit his QB for fear of injury. Well how about this? If you just blitz Manning every down, he'll probably burn you downfield repeatedly. Even if he only plays for the first half Manning may have built up enough of a lead for the Colts to hold on for the win.

Colts 24-17

Denver @ Philadelphia

Denver's fighting for their playoff lives. However, what the rest of us don't know is that someone planted a bomb inside Donovan McNabb that will go off if he doesn't win 11 games in the regular saeson, so he's playing for his actual life.

Eagles 30-20

Sunday Night

Dallas @ Washington

Huh, the NFC East on primetime ... whaddaya know? I'm not sure if any of you watched the Redskins game on Monday night, but after the fake field goal that ended the first half (which was maybe the worst play I've ever seen) the D.C. fans sent their team off the field with perhaps the loudest hometown boos I've ever heard. Just thought I'd mention that.

Cowboys 27-12

Monday Night

Minnesota @ Chicago

No more day games for the Vikings huh? Alright. Cool, I can't get enough of this Favre guy.

Vikings 24-20


Brandon Morrow Trade

The boys at USSM, more specifically Dave Cameron, have come up with 3 logical scenarios for the Brandon Morrow trade.


I'd like to submit a 4th option...

Jack Z was getting too good at his job! Every other GM was going to be scared of him if he didn't throw a few stinkers out there. Now when he's got another sucker GM hooked in and they say
"Wait a second Jacky Boy!!!! You never make dumb moves... that means your fleecing me pal! NO DEAL!!!", Jack can fire back with "No sir, remember that Morrow trade? All I got for a former 1st round pick was a relief pitcher and a crummy prospect! I can't win em all!"

Done deal.

In Jack we trust.

Happy Hanukkah (sp?) everyone!



#3 Field of Dreams

I you don't like this movie you're either a douche bag or some kind of nazi.

I'm in a hurry. I know what a travesty. But let's get serious for a moment.

Here's James Earl Jones'ss''s'sss' s speech.:

I didn't add the video... because I really wanted his powerful words to hit home. That... and for some reason there's no video on youtube for fod.



NFL Picks Week 15

I totally nailed that Chargers-Cowboys pick last week.

Saturday Night

Dallas @ New Orleans

So Dallas can't win in December, we all know that, but there's something else going against them this week too: New Orleans hasn't lost in any month this season. Even October? Yes ... even October. With these two factors nothing has to give.

Saints 34-20

Morning Games

New England @ Buffalo

Were the Panthers supposed to be breaking news to us by saying that Randy Moss gives up on plays? Does anybody remember his stint with the Raiders? He gave up on entire seasons. I went 0-14 one year in Fantasy because of this guy. In a related story, it also appears he's given up on shaving.

Patriots 24-17

Arizona @ Detroit

Last week when I claimed that Ray Lewis would murder Matthew Stafford in their game I was unaware that Stafford wouldn't actually be playing. To be fair though, I'm pretty sure the reason he didn't play was that he read my picks and started suspecting that I might be right. Well, I'm not sure if he's supposed to start this week, but if he is, I see a Darnell Dockett choking in his future. (Stafford just decided to sit.)

Cardinals 27-16

Miami @ Tennessee

My Wacky Pick of the Week: There will not be a pass attempted in this game. You just watch ...

Titans 23-20

Cleveland @ Kansas City

I don't have confirmation, but I don't see how this one avoids being a Stinger. There have been a lot of contenders for "Worst Game of the Year," and this one looks pretty pathetic, but nothing can top Cleveland 6 Buffalo 3 from Week 5. I feel like that terrible game has been forgotten about, which is a shame. We must never forget that game, otherwise we learn nothing.

Chiefs 16-13

Houston @ St. Louis

Whoa, these Texans are getting good.

Texans 31-17

Atlanta @ New York Jets

Apparently the Jets have the best scoring defense in the league. Maybe I've unjustly written off the Jets for no reason. Oh wait, I remember the reason, their coach is a fat asshole.

Jets 20-13

Afternoon Games

Oakland @ Denver

Brandon Marshall was targeted something like 27 times last week (like I said last week, I'm not doing much research for this thing). That reminds me of someone playing Madden and just throwing to one guy every time because he knows he'll catch it. So my conclusion is that Kyle Orton is a cheap Madden player, which explains the Broncos 6-0 start; he was obviously just re-setting games when they lost.

Broncos 24-13

Cincinnati @ San Diego

Phillip Rivers just doesn't lose games in December, and I know why. We can all agree that Rivers seems like a real asshole, however, when December rolls around it seems like he just shuts his mouth and takes care of business. It's clear to me now that Phillips Rivers still believes in Santa Claus and he's trying to move from the naughty list to the nice list right around this time every year.

Chargers 30-20

San Francisco @ Philadelphia

I heard that Mike Singletary wants the Niners to challenge for a playoff spot, however, they can't because he already burned all their timeouts.

Eagles 28-17

Tampa Bay @ Seattle

Kind of weird to think that this was a Sunday Night game last year. I was happy with the Seahawks last week because they let it be known on the very first play that they wouldn't be winning the game. It really saved me a lot of stress.

Seahawks 28-18

Chicago @ Baltimore

I've got nothing ... um ... Cutler sucks?

Ravens 20-10

Green Bay @ Pittsburgh

This is a tough call, in fact, it might come down to the coin toss. After all, whichever quarterback gets the ball first might just hold it for the entire game.

Steelers 21-20

Sunday Night

Minnesota @ Carolina

Why could this game not have been flexed? Is it just because they think Favre will get ratings? I counted 3 games that should be better. (Bonus, if you correctly identify which 3 games I was talking about, there's a high five coming your way.)

Vikings 31-20

Monday Night

New York Giants @ Washington

You don't just come in to D.C. and leave with a win ... you also leave with increased confidence because they made you realize how good of a team you can actually be.

Giants 24-21




Check it out!!!


Check out Henry's bio!!!!!

Honestly, we're so happy! We couldn't have done it with all you Mustacheers!

Wak has Plan for Milton Bradley

Once again, the M's rip off another team for talent trading Carlos Silva for Milton Bradley.  In case, you are concerned about the perception that Bradley is a clubhouse cancer, don't worry.  The M's feel Bradley's antics can be cured be a serious case of Griffey tickles.


Jim Mora SUPER tough Guy

Another Jim Mora rant! Yay.

I'm getting real tired of Jim, (gonna drain his heat HHH style).

Questioning the Seahawks toughness? Probably warranted, cuz I haven't seen a lot of heart on this team either... other than MH of course. But Jim's act is getting real old.

What has he EVER done as a head coach? Falcons had one shining moment, but they ultimately sucked... and now this year is just pathetic.

I also really enjoy Jim's strategy of calling out his team the week before they play the worst teams in the league (Detroit last time, Tampa Bay this week). That way when we (hopefully) kick some ass against an (again... hopefully) inferior team, he looks like a motivational mastermind!!!! Nice try Jim. I don't buy it.

Me thinks, Jim has gotten by a little too much on his daddy's reputation. Maybe trying to get a little of that classic Jim Mora, Sr. press conference heat. So... Jim, JR... I've watched press conferences by Jim Mora, Sr. I've enjoyed press conferences from Jim Mora, Sr. You sir are no Jim Mora, Sr.

At least this time Jim called out an O-Lineman and not our kicker. Cuz calling out a kicker wouldn't be very TOUGH would it Jim.


Bad babysitting... oh sorry.

Fire Jim Mora. I dislike him.



I was speaking with some friends (I can't remember who) about Avatar, James Cameron's new holiday blockbuster. One funny chap made a joke about how it's just a bunch of our Yahoo! Fantasy Football characters (see the sports connection? We're a sports blog!) fighting it out (so if you made the joke take credit... it was funny). It got me thinking about the movie a little bit though.

Seems really familiar (South Park slams aside). I mean two different races/cultures battling it out over ruling a planet. The film itself relies HEAVILY on AMAZING CGI and computer animation. It all seems so familiar...

Where have I seen this before?

Oh... my... god...


Jimmy Cameron ripped off Delgo! He saw the market was unfulfilled by last years movie (would be) king... and struck! What a jerk.

The Delgo creator is gonna be kicking himself... I mean this is EXACTLY what would have happened with a marketing budget!!! (I'm assuming the movie will end up making a few hundred mil)

Anyway... Delgo... we know the truth. And we'll never forget!



I'll bet most of yous thought this list was over...


I didn't hear no bell.

#4 Rocky (the series)

Yeah, rather than list all the films individually... we decided to just group them. It may have helped it climb the list (or in 5's case, hurt it's cause).

Anyway, everyone knows the greatness of these films. The great montages, , Clubber Lang, Tommy Gunn (hey how'd you get in here), Thunder Lips, Mickey, Pauly, Adrianne, DRAGOOOOOOOOOOOOO, and the great Apollo Creed!

Which one hurts more? Goose or Apollo?

Here are some of my favorite clips from the Rocky Series (or at least my favorite clips I could find on YouTube)

Original Trailer:

Clubber's prediction for his fight:


No easy way out:

Hearts on fire:

Cliff Lee is a Seattle Mariner!

for some Canadian junk. Everything you read on Twitter is true, right?


Seahawks Game thread

Post your thoughts on the game here! Personally, I feel that...

we fucking suck. Fire every single person associated with the Seahawks, save maybe a dozen or so players. Honestly... WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!

Here's a fun game for all you Mustacheers to play: Last person to keep watching this game wins a free beer from me!

Have fun!


NFL Picks Week 14

I haven't correctly predicted a score since Week 7. In a completely unrelated factoid, were you aware that 20-17 is the most common final score in the history of the NFL? It's happened 229 times so far, including 9 times already this season. Just thought I'd point that out, now let's get to the picks!

Morning Games

New Orleans @ Atlanta

Last week I predicted that New Orleans would lose, and they really should have, but this week I just can't see it happening. Matt Ryan and Michael Turner are out again this week ... I think. I don't know, I don't do any real research for this thing, in fact, I copy and paste most of it from other sites. Bill Simmons is a columnist for ESPN.com. For every S

Saints 20-17

Green Bay @ Chicago

A couple of hot young QBs set to do battle. It's anybody's guess as to which total will be higher: number of times Aaron Rodgers is sacked or number of times Jay Cutler throws an interception. I'll go with 9-7 Cutler.

Packers 20-17

New York Jets @ Tampa Bay

Rex Ryan keeps telling me the Jets are good, but I'm not sure I'm buying it. I think I'll take Tampa in an upset. (I've learned that acknowledging that your pick is an upset makes it seem brave and hopefully means people will cut you some slack when you're wrong.)

Buccaneers 20-17

Miami @ Jacksonville

Another Stinger from the good folks in Jacksonville. This one's pretty ridiculous. These teams are battling for the final wild card spot in the AFC, they play in the same state, and at halftime they're actually going to have a jaguar fight a dolphin. How did this game not sell-out?

Dolphins 20-17

Detroit @ Baltimore

I would not be surprised if Ray Lewis legitimately murders Matthew Stafford during this game. I'm thinking he shivs him after a sack and then shooshes Stafford's gasps of pain. It'll be a lot like Adam Goldberg's death scene in Saving Private Ryan.

Ravens 20-17

Seattle @ Houston

When I reviewed the Seahawks' 2009 schedule prior to the season on this very website I said this about our match-up with the Texans: "This is a tailor-made 'lay an egg' game for us, but since we'll be going 16-0 this season, we probably won't lose it." Well, that prediction hasn't failed me yet, so I guess I'll roll with it.

Seahawks 20-17

Denver @ Indianapolis

Is it me or do the Broncos always get killed when they play at Indy? Doesn't it just seem like this happens a lot? Look, just say yes, and we can move on. Anyway, it's time for that draft pick to get a little better.

Colts 20-17

Buffalo @ Kansas City

Hey Jacksonville, this game got sold out. That's how pathetic you are. Did anybody else see how bad the Chiefs, and in particular Cassel, looked last week in their 44-13 loss to the Broncos? I'm just kidding, of course no one saw that game.

Bills 20-17

Cincinnati @ Minnesota

Bust out the HD TVs for this one. It's Orange vs. Purple, which kind of sounds like a gang war on Castro Street. The Bengals have repeatedly stepped up in their toughest games this year ... nevermind, I guess I was just thinking about their 4-0 record against the Ravens and Steelers, which we now can plainly see are not good teams. That being said, I think they'll keep this one close.

Vikings 20-17

Carolina @ New England

It's a rematch of one of the more underrated Super Bowls of all time. Not because of the actual game, which was fine, but because of Jake Delhomme's "Cajun finger wave" that he gave to a New England defender who bumped him while he ran down the field to celebrate a touchdown pass (sorry, I couldn't find a youtube clip). I haven't checked officially, but I'm pretty sure that was the last touchdwon pass Jake Delhomme threw. Side note: as I typed "Super Bowl" I got to thinking that that was a really nerdy title for a game. It's such a great game that it's SUPER! What a Super Bowl indeed!

Patriots 20-17

Afternoon Games

Washington @ Oakland

This is the second Stinger of the day, even after the Raiders epic victory over the Steelers last week. Speaking of, I was at a bar last night and the bartender had a Raiders wristband and a tattoo of the logo. The follwoing exchange happened:

Me: Hey, Raiders, they've been playing better lately, what's the deal?
Bartender: They put in the white quarterback.

Hmmm. Sounds like this guy's been to his fair share of Heatherwood West fireworks shows.

Raiders 20-17

St. Louis @ Tennessee

Remember in Super Bowl (SUPER!) XXXII when Holmgren decided to let the Broncos score at the end of the game so that he could get the ball back? I get the feeling that it's going to look just like that every time Chris Johnson touches the ball in this game. And for my Wacky Pick of the Week: Chris Johnson breaks the single game rushing record.

Tennessee 20-17

San Diego @ Dallas

Tony Romo has decided to start holding for kicks again, which gives me the excuse to link to this video. Alright, fuck this game, a couple of things about that clip. It's a really good "disbelief cheer" from us (and I say us because 75% (3 out of 4) of the people who will read this were there). Secondly, I love when Shaun comes running in at the end of the play with his giant coat and no helmet on. That probably should have been a penalty huh? Oh well. Oh, right, the game, umm, the Cowboys don't win games in December right?

Chargers 20-17

Sunday Night

Philadelphia @ New York Giants

I never get tired of having the NFC East rammed down our throats in prime time. Maclin is out for the Eagles, and I actually think that will matter.

Giants 20-17

Monday Night

Arizona @ San Francisco

It's too bad all Niners fans don't read my weekly picks, if they did they wouldn't be so delusional and they'd realize their team sucks and their coach is a moron. Three timeouts in the first 10 minutes of the game? Cannot win with him, can't do it. I'm starting to think Coors Light paid off the 49ers to hire Mike Singletary because they needed some new commercials. Anyway, the Cardinals might be hitting their stride, and that's frightening because when they're at their best they can choke 4 to 5 throats per game.

Cardinals 20-17


10 years... my god... where has it all gone?

It's time for one of HCM's favorite traditions:

Best of the Decade!

And just like always, we need your help...

Let's come up with a variety of topics to vote on (I know how much you clowns like intercative polls with bells and whistles to distract you from your pathetic little non-blogging lives).

Suggestions (Easy ones):

Favorite Mariner

Favorite Sonic

Favorite Seahawk

Favorite Cougar

Favorite Husky Disgrace

the list can go on and on... and it WILL!

Those are just a few we'll be doing... but any reasonable suggestions will be added to the list. Come up with the category and the Party Hosts will put together your voting options.

Let's get this started sooner rather than later! Post away Mustacheers! Whoa SLOW DOWN!!! Not all at once you maniacs!



There comes a time in every movie list where it has to turn and face the music. And that movie is....

you Kingpin.

#5 Kingpin

I'm fully aware that the intro made little to no sense... just trying to work a classic Big Ern McCracken line in.

Honestly... my head hurts from trying to come up with stuff to say about the flick.

I will never get tired of watching Big Ern hit on those broads in the diner. Big Ern fondeling women every chance her gets. Big Ern... now that I think about it, any of you younger Mustacheers might want to purchase a copy of this film and just follow Big Ern as your personal savior. Sometimes I wish I had. I'll bet things would've turned out a lot different. In FACT, I'm debating adding him to the illustrious list of HCM heroes! Any objections?

And I will certainly never get tired... of the showdown.

I'M BIG ERN! Finally BIG ERN IS ABOVE THE LAW!!!! Oh what do I care I'm RICH!!!

Sure I left a buuuuunch out, didn't even hit on tons of the great stuff here... I'll let the legions of Mustacheers participating in the countdown take it from here.

First person to make a "Munsoned" joke wins a free high five!


Felix Contract

According to Jon Heyman, who just appeared on MLB Network, Felix's agent has asked for a new contract that is 6 years for $100 million. I think that's fairly reasonable and that the M's should probably go for it. Of course, this will probably result in Felix getting very complacent, gaining 40 lbs. and declining sharply over the next few years. Either way we're gonna have a little fun right!?

Anyway, what do you guys think about that offer?


NFL Picks Week 13

Anybody here like football!? No? Really? Nobody here likes football? Wow that's surprising, but ok. Um, well this is gonna be weird then because this whole post is about football, so ....

Morning Games

Philadelphia @ Atlanta

How will the crowd react to the return of Michael Vick? Well I remember a televised town hall meeting in which the folks in Atlanta booed a PETA member for encouraging people to not forget that the dogs were the real victims in the Vick case. So, obviously it's a classy bunch and they'll handle things appropriately. The Falcons are 5-0 at home but they're missing Matt Ryan and probably Michael Turner, so ...

Eagles 27-16

St. Louis @ Chicago

I was planning on just going against Jay Cutler at all times, but he's playing the Rams for God's sake. I'd like to pick no one but I can't do that, I have too much integrity, and you readers care too much for me to pull something like that.

Bears 23-9

Detroit @ Cincinnati

If someone had told me at the beginning of the year that Lions-Bengals would be the most anticipated game of the season I probably would have said they were crazy. Well if someone told me that now I'd still say they were crazy, this game is going to be shitty.

Bengals 28-10

Oakland @ Pittsburgh

We could see a QB match-up of Bruce Gradkowski vs. Dennis Dixon in this one. That's funny enough by itself right? I don't need to write another fabulous joke do I?

Steelers 23-6

Tennessee @ Indianapolis

Probably the most interesting game of the day. If you're a loyal reader of this weekly post (you two know who you are) then you're well aware that I've been backing VY for the last 4 weeks, he's a pretty magical guy. But can I pick him against the Colts? A team that hasn't lost a regular season game since 2003 (sic)? The answer is yes, and you know why? Well I don't know, like I said he's magical, and I can't explain magic and if I tried to I'd get blacklisted.

Titans 22-21

Denver @ Kansas City

So I guess Denver decided to be good again last week? What happened there? No seriously what happened, it was the late game on Thanksgiving and I was pretty hammered and very sleepy so I didn't see much of the game. Anyway, this week Denver will go back to their mission of being the opposite Titans.

Chiefs 20-16

New England @ Miami

So do the Pats come out angry in this one or are they just not that good? Well, I think they're still decent enough, plus the Dolphins let me down last week. I thought I knew what to expect from them, but now I don't know ... I just ... I can't do this anymore.

Patriots 31-27

New Orleans @ Washington

Alright I'm back. New Orleans really looked unstoppable last week, which makes me really want to pick D.C. in this one. I mean the Saints have to lose at some point right? And this is a text book letdown game. But, it's the 'Skins, and they're really bad ... Ya know what, eff it! I'm doing it! Who's gonna stop me? You? Pssh, no, you're not gonna stop me, you're just gonna sit there with that stupid look on your face like you wanna say something but you ain't gonna say shit.

Redskins 23-20

Tampa Bay @ Carolina

Umm, I don't know ... Delhomme sucks ... That's funny right? I found out that Delhomme has the same birthday as me, he's really bringing down the day at this point.

Panthers 21-13

Houston @ Jacksonville

I think we've got our one and only Stinger of the week. Obviously I don't like the idea of moving teams out of cities, but if the Jags are in a playoff race and can't sell out any games they really shouldn't have a team in Jacksonville. Maybe there's something I don't know that's keeping fans away, but this just looks bad at this point. Sidenote, the Jags went ahead and proved that they weren't good last week. I've been saying it for weeks, thanks guys, I seem somewhat legitimate now.

Texans 27-20

Afternoon Games

San Diego @ Cleveland

I really don't even think the Browns like football.

Chargers 34-10

Dallas @ New York Giants

Here's my Wacky Pick of the Week! Smiles Austin gets all of his teeth knocked out rendering him unable to smile for the rest of his life. The nation weeps.

Giants 20-17

San Francisco @ Seattle

Hawks are riding a winning streak and they've got all the momentum in the world. Oh ... they're also playing the Niners, so it looks like another win is in store.

Seahawks 23-16

Sunday Night

Minnesota @ Arizona

This one is tough to pick because it's still unknown if Kurt Warner is going to play. If he plays I like the Cards, if he doesn't I like Jared Allen to literally kill Matt Leinart.

w/ Warner ... Cardinals 31-24 w/o Warner ... Vikings 28-14

Monday Night

Baltimore @ Green Bay

Have the Ravens played a normal Sunday game this year? I think it's been strictly Sunday nights and Mondays for them, I think they even played on a Friday somehow too. Anyway, the Ravens will win because Ray Rice is the best player in the history of the NFL, and great kisser, at least that's what Ray Lewis tells me.

Ravens 24-21


Holgren as GM

If Holgren is named the new Seahawks GM, I suspect it will be because he just submits his 2002 draft selections in place of a resume to secure the job.

1/28Jerramy Stevens

The McRib has returned to Southern California. This event may or may not result in me having to enter the 2010 Weight Loss Challenge. Speaking of challenges, are we still looking for someone to eat 5? If so, I feel up to the task. I just downed 2 in the span of about 5 minutes and feel like I could certainly go for more. I will state right now, however, that I will not eat pickles on any of the McRibs, if this violates the challenge then I guess I'll forfeit. (or I could just get extra onions to compensate)

Sidenote: They cost $2.60. That seems a little higher than normal. It comes out to about $15 with tax for 5 of them. A small price to pay for immortality I suppose.


Weight Loss Challenge 2010

We're back baby!

HenryCotto'sMustache.com Weight Loss Challenge!

Who can forget last year's FUN!!!

Well apparently the two competitors forgot what they learned... cuz they're back and fatter than ever! And we're looking for new challengers! Any takers just step your fat ass up to the plate.

Bring it nancies.

The Top 5

Well we finally made Mustacheers!

Well... not quite. We'll announce 1 film each of the next 4 weeks and celebrate the new year with our #1 Greatest Sports Film of All Time!

Any guesses on the top 5? Ah, never mind... we don't wanna ruin it!



I don't even own this movie. And for that I am ashamed. I guess I always just get a little pissed because people try and tell me this is a better baseball movie than the ACTUAL best baseball movie of all time...

But that's not Bull Durham's fault.

#6: Bull Durham

A few things about this flick:

- Susan Sarandon at her finest... can you see boob in this movie? I can't remember.

- Another Costner appearance (SPOILER ALERT: it won't be his last). He makes good baseball movies.

Here's arguably... go ahead, argue it.... the most memorable seen:



The Cougs went .500 yesterday! Sure we lost a meaningless football game, but we won the Greta Alaska Shootout, and Klay Thompson might be the best player in the Pac 10. Seriously. But enough about the Cougs. Let's get down to the real reason you all come to this site. The top 50 Sports Films of All time!!!

#7: Happy Gilmore

Another reason our countdown whoops balls and others blow. Here's a quick clip of one of my favorite moments. (let's face it, Shooter McGavin might be one of the greatest movie characters of all time. FACE IT! FACE IT TOGETHER!!!!)

Too many moments to get to here. Maybe some of you will actually comment and... well that could be fun.

Go Seahawks by the way. We don't lose to Rams.

NFL Picks 12

I really procrastinated this week so I've got no time for my usual wit.

Morning Games

Tampa Bay @ Atlanta

Atlanta's at home, sounds good.

Falcons 31-19

Miami @ Buffalo

Miami's always solid.

Dolphins 23-20

Cleveland @ Cincinnati

Brown is the color of poop.

Bengals 28-10

Seattle @ St. Louis

Thanks to the lame-o's in St. Louis this game is a Stinger. It's probably best that not a lot of people see this one.

Seahwaks 24-14

Carolina @ New York Jets

Delhomme vs. Sanchez. I can't tell if this will be fun or just really really awful to watch.

Panthers 17-16

Washington @ Philadelphia

I got nothing.

Eagles 26-13

Indianapolis @ Houston

Houston almost beat Indy last time, and now they're at home. Upset City one way or the other. If the Texans lose Houston will be an upset city.

Texans 24-22

Afternoon Games

Kansas City @ San Diego


Chargers 35-13

Jacksonville @ San Francisco

Like I said last week, the Jags record is becoming pretty inflated, and here's another win for them ... maybe.

Jaguars 20-17

Chicago @ Minnesota

Can't go with Cutler. The rule is still in effect.

Vikings 31-14

Arizona @ Tennessee

VY! God bless him.

Titans 24-21

Sunday Night

Pittsburgh @ Baltimore

I'm not sure I can get behind Dennis Dixon, but I'll bet the Steelers can get behind with Dennis Dixon.

Ravens 20-13

Monday Night

New England @ New Orleans

Saints 42-31


Yahoo! Prognosticator

After I submitted my picks for this weeks game, Yahoo gave me 1 point for Green Bay's 26-0 victory over the Lions. Looks like somebody really doesn't want to have to go into the office tomorrow.



#8 Rudy

Some stories transcend time.

Some movies are timeless.

Some legends never die...

and some bloggers are lazy. Here's a clip from Rudy:


Ok... i was gonna blow this post off, ya know not give it the attention I do the rest of these fine films... cuz I was tired... but damnit all ta hell... just watching that clip alone... Rudy ranks right up there with Braveheart as the most chill inducing movies of all time (and one other one still to come)...

I don't even want to make jokes about this one... but a few things:

1) Did Favs and Vince Vaughn meet on this film?

2) Why are Rudy's Dad and Brother looking in completely different directions while celebrating Rudy's sack?

3) I like to think Rudy never saw Roc again.


4) You think Charlie Weiss watches this clip and just feels the need to punch himself squarely in the junk. "I (wheeeez) deserve (wheeeeez) that (weeehhheeeeeeheehehzz huff and puff)/

I'm gonna watch the clip again and cry myself to sleep.

Huskies are so rad.

It's been posted on many blogs and newspaper sites, and here's a link to the whole article:


Some Husky player chirping about putting up 50 against the Cougs.


That's fine good luck... or in this case join the party! We suck. Big deal. The part of his quote that cracks me up is this:

"Run the score up. Put on a show. We're just trying to make a statement that we are the real deal."

What universe is this guy living in where running up the score on a 1 - whatever team makes you the real deal?!?

Honestly, even if it weren't against the Cougs, this would've cracked me up.

Here's another example of Huskies proving they're the real deal:


Those old folks needed to recognize!!!


NFL Picks Week 11

After joking last week that the Pats-Colts game would be a snoozefest I actually did fall asleep during the second half. Whoops! Anybody know what happened? I missed the end and haven't been able to find the highlights on ESPN.

Morning Games

Washington @ Dallas

Cowboys hosting Indians in late November. It's just like the first Thanksgiving huh? Well no, it's not, that was pilgrims not cowboys you IDIOT! I don't even know why I bother writing this every week if you're gonna say stupid shit like that.

Cowboys 27-13

Cleveland @ Detroit

Oh my God yes! Just when you thought STL @ DET would easily be the worst game of the year this gem comes along. It's like when Sting returned in his Crow make-up, was it better than the original Sting? Possibly. I'm going to throw out my Wacky pick of the week right now: This game will mark the first time that a fan runs on the field and is not arrested or apprehended. Instead, the fan will actually hang back in a Cover 2 zone, intercept a Brady Quinn pass and return it for a touchdown. But no, he won't be signed by the Lions. C'mon, that would be ridiculous.

Lions 11-8

San Francisco @ Green Bay

These teams both had solid showings on defense last week. Green Bay nearly shut out Dallas and Smiles Austin and San Fran picked off Jay Cutler 5 times. Here's the thing though, San Fran had 0 sacks of Cutler and only hit him 6 times. So what this really proves is that Cutler just sucks, and I'm convinced that the Niners do too. Last Thursday was the first time I was glad that I didn't get the NFL Network.

Packers 23-13

Pittsburgh @ Kansas City

Don't care.

Steelers 31-15

Atlanta @ New York Giants

If there's one thing we've learned about Atlanta it's that they don't perform very well on the road. This game is on the road (see above).

Giants 24-16

New Orleans @ Tampa Bay

Is Josh Freeman the next Vince Young? This guy just knows how to almost get the job done. In all fairness his defense blew it for him in the last minute last week, so he could easily be 2-0 as a starter. A 2-0 Freeman vs. the 9-0 Saints, something's gotta give! Oh, Josh just raised his hand, well I guess that takes care of that.

Saints 34-20

Buffalo @ Jacksonville

So apparently after firing Dick Jauron the Bills are interested in Mike Shanahan and Bill Cowher. I've also heard that they're interested in Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry. Honestly, who do the Bills think they are? What makes them think those guys would be interested? The shitty quarterbacks? The horrible weather? If they wanted that they could just go to Chicago ... hi-o. Side note the Jaguars are NOT good they've just hit a soft spot in the schedule that will allow them to get 6-4, maybe even 7-4 but they won't end up better than 8-8.

Jaguars 20-17

Indianapolis @ Baltimore

Debatable as to who had the better win last week. Apparently Indy had a great comeback over the Pats, but if you watched the Ravens-Browns game ... nevermind, nobody watched that. Is it possible for a Monday Night game to be blacked out?

Colts 28-24

Seattle @ Minnesota

I'd be very worried about this game even if the Hawks had a healthy Walt Jones. With the O-line situation as it is I'm actually less worried, because I know it will be one of those games where I can stop being nervous after the middle of the 2nd quarter. Although .....

Seahawks 28-27

Afternoon Games

Arizona @ St. Louis

Ok, so I know that last week I said I would pick against whatever my first inclination was when it comes to the Cardinals but c'mon, I can't pick the Rams can I? Can I?

Cardinals 35-21 (I couldn't)

New York Jets @ New England

Patriots will most likely still be very angry and the Jets will most likely still be very shitty.

Patriots 38-10

Cincinnati @ Oakland

Well Bengals your season is going great what's the next step? Hire a homophobic woman-beater. Which raises the point, Larry Johnson hates gay guys and he obviously isn't very fond of women ... what's he into?

Bengals 20-6

San Diego @ Denver

I guess I underestimated the Broncos last week. A loss to the Redskins was, in fact, not too much to ask for. Clearly they'll follow that up by politely stretching this into a 4 game losing streak. Look, I don't like rooting for teams to lose ... actually nevermind I have absolutely no problem with that, never have.

Chargers 23-10

Sunday Night

Philadelphia @ Chicago

I'm just going to go against Cutler for now. The guy has thrown 17 interceptions. He now has 14 more interceptions than chins. Of course, there's still plenty of time left in the season.

Eagles 27-20

Monday Night

Tennessee @ Houston

At this point it's VY's world and we're all just living in it. Fortunately for him one of the people living in the world is Chris Johnson. I'll be honest, at this point I won't pick against the Titans. Of course, the Texans are better than any of the teams they've beaten on their 3 game winning streak, but these Titans are teaching me what it is to believe; any team that can reel off consecutive W's over Jacksonville, San Francisco, and Buffalo has to have some magic right?

Titans 26-24



#9 Varsity Blues

Great football flick. One of the best!!! Lots of TnA, HOT ladies! And I don't even think VanDerBeek's accent is all that embarrassing.

Plus, Voight is a top ten hated asshole in the history of film.... in this movie. Otherwise he's swell.

And then... there's this:

Have a great day!

Lyla always looked like a baseball gal

It had nothing to do with Street's paralysis. Or Riggins' alcoholic tendencies.


The Top 10: #10

(we tossed a little Affleck in there, cuz he's the bomb)

The final countdown... the Top Ten Greatest Sports Films of All Time!

#10. Jerry Maguire

If nothing else, this film bought us the greatness that is Jonathan Lipnicki. (Sorry if I spelled that wrong JL!)

Let's go to a clip...

Alright... 9 to go. You can cut the tension with a wet noodle.


The Real Season Begins

With the NFL regular season now over, we enter into the time that most fans consider more exciting than the regular season: Draft Positioning Season. During this exciting time teams compete to see who will get the chance to pick sleepers at the end of each round in the draft. The better teams go to a playoff system with the winner of the 32nd Pick Bowl getting the special right to pick at the end of the round. The not-so-good teams compete for the right to pay their draft pick less money. As you may have noticed, teams looking to save some cash like Tennessee have really tried to turn their season around and get a middle of the round pick. Other teams, like Oakland, have blown so many high draft picks, that they throw games to get another chance at righting their many wrongs.

With a huge #1 vs. #2 matchup looming on Sunday, I feel now is the perfect time to debut the draft standings.

Currently, the draft standings are as such:
1. Detroit
2. Cleveland
3. Tampa Bay
4. St. Louis
5. Oakland
6. Kansas City
7. Buffalo
8. Seattle
9. Tennessee
10. Washington
11. Chicago
12. Jets
13. Carolina
14. Miami
15. San Fran
16. Houston
17. Giants
18. Baltimore
19. Green Bay
20. Jacksonville
21. Atlanta
22. Philadelphia
23. New England
24. San Diego
25. Arizona
26. Denver (pick belongs to Seattle)
27. Pittsburgh
28. Dallas
29. Cincinnati
30. Minnesota
31. New Orleans
32. Indianapolis

To get this draft talk started, I'd like to see what position you, the Mustacheers, would most like to see the Hawks address in the first round.


New Mustacheers

Looks like we finally got a few new Mustacheers. (must have been the movie list)


Use this thread to tell us a little about yourselves! (or don't. no big whoop.)


Don't worry the Top 10 Sports Movies of All Time is right around the corner, just using the anticipation to work all of the rest of you Mustacheers into a rabid frenzy!

NFL Picks Week 10

Alright, so last week wasn't too hot. I went 8-5 and didn't get too close on any of the games. Although, if we forget about the 1st quarter, which apparently the Hawks did, the score of their game was 32-3, not far off from my 31-0 prediction. Close enough for me! Still riding the hot streak!

Morning Games

New Orleans @ St. Louis

Oh boy. How ugly could this one get? This ugly? Or just this ugly?

Saints 41-10

Tampa Bay @ Miami

Miami puts up a solid effort every week, and that's exactly what it's going to take to beat a Raheem Morris coached team when they're on a winning streak. Has an NFL team ever had 3 people rush for 100 yards in the same game? I think Brown-Williams-White could do it.

Dolphins 35-17

Detroit @ Minnesota

If there's one thing we learned about the Lions last week it's that they absolutely cannot defend the short pass, and this year that has been Favre's specialty. I'm not sure if that's entirely true but it sounds right. What does it matter anyway, this is a squash match. In fact, the Lions aren't even going to get entrance music, they'll just be on the field when Fox comes back from commercial, and they'll probably have wrestling jackets on just for good measure.

Vikings 34-7

Jacksonville @ New York Jets

Anybody else getting tired of Rex Ryan thinking his team is really good for some reason? How about they just let him coach the Chargers so that the whole organization can just be cocky a-holes. That being said, they'll probably win this week because Jacksonville is not good.

Jets 20-13

Buffalo @ Tennessee

I'll say it again, VY just knows how to get the job done. either that or his first two games were against Jacksonville and San Francisco. And now he gets Buffalo at home. Oh, and Chris Johnson is ridiculous. Other than that it's all VY, and he's gonna do it again this week.

Titans 24-16

Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh

Alright, I made a mistake going against the Bengals at home last week, but I'm not going to do it again this week! That's because they're playing on the road.

Steelers 27-20

Denver @ Washington

Good news! Ever since I asked the Broncos to lose out a couple weeks ago they have kindly obliged. This is going to be a bit of a tall order though. Honestly, if you played for the Skins what would you be more ashamed of, your play on the field or the fact that your team name is a racial slur? Trick question, they're actually most ashamed of the Scientologists in their luxury box.

Broncos 26-14

Atlanta @ Carolina

What did I tell you about the heat that DeAngelo Hall would generate in his return to Atlanta. This leads me to my Wacky Pick of the Week. Hall will sneak onto the field in a Panthers uniform and attempt to sneak attack Falcons coach Mike Smith in a response to their altercation last week. However, Smith will see him coming and be like, "Oh hell no!" Then he'll beat him down Finn on Nick Van Exel style. Aside from that though, has anybody noticed that Matt Ryan isn't that good this year? I smell a mild upset.

Panthers 23-21

Afternoon Games

Kansas City @ Oakland

He does this, he does that.
He big as a bull and quick as a cat.

Those are some lyrics from "Man Called Sting," ironically it was also the scouting report on JeMarcus Russell coming out of LSU.

Winner: The people at home in the Oakland area. Ok fine, Chiefs 14-13

Seattle @ Arizona

I've learned that when it comes to the Cardinals I should just pick against whatever my first inclination is. Which means I get to pick the Hawks again!

Seahawks 30-28

Dallas @ Green Bay

Up until last week Aaron Rodgers had only thrown 2 interceptions. That seems like a really good stat until you realize that he's now been sacked 37 times. That's almost 5 a game. Might be time to start slingin' the pigskin as if he were out in the backyard playin' ball with the boys all while wearing a comfortable pair of jeans.

Cowboys 31-26

Philadelphia @ San Diego

I think this will be a big win for San Diego. And if we see LaDanian Tomlinson making his pouty face on the sideline at the end of the game we'll know that Darren Sproles has helped them get that win.

Chargers 27-24

Sunday Night

New England @ Indianapolis


Patriots 24-20

Monday Night

Baltimore @ Cleveland

Oh what a game! Did you know that the Saints defense has scored more touchdowns than the Browns offense? There's no joke here, well except for the Browns of course.

Ravens 30-13


Griffey re-signs with the M's

At least that's what Larry stone says.  I really didn't expect this to happen so fast.  I guess this rules out the possibilities of Matsui coming to the M's(Begin typing here for after the break) I don't think I like this move.

NFL Picks Week 9

So last week didn't turn out too well. I was only 7-6 in straight up picking games, which, quite frankly, is Jimmy Johnson-esque. And if I remember correctly, part of the mission statement of this website was to be be better than Jimmy Johnson, so I'll have to step it up this time around. On the bright side I had some close calls on the NO-ATL game (mine: 34-27 actual: 35-27) and the MIA-NYJ game (mine: 28-25 actual: 30-25) so I'm still obviously a credible source of football pickery.

The Early Games:

Washington @ Atlanta

Oh baby, it's finally here, DeAngelo Hall's return to Atlanta. In what is no doubt the most anticipated game featuring a player versus his former team since that one time that the Rams signed Isaiah Kacyvenski the week they played the Hawks (what a bunch of Harley riders). I don't know about you folks but I'll have my browser open to the "Hall Cam" on foxsports.com.

Falcons 24-12

Arizona @ Chicago

Was it some sort of "Freaky Friday" scenario last week when Kurt Warner threw 5 picks against Carolina? Did he and Jake Delhomme change bodies somehow? It sure seemed like it. The Cardinals are 3-0 on the road this year, but the Bears are 3-0 at home. In fact, when you look at their team stats these two are remarkably similar, almost identical ... identical, hmm ... identical twins ... The Parent Trap ... is it possible Kurt Warner has become involved in some sort of Disney movie curse? What's next a Bedknobs and Broomsticks game? (No, I don't know how that would work.)

Bears 27-23

Baltimore @ Cincinnati

Are the Bengals for real? I say no. Most likely they're holograms. And while they're very technologically advanced and hard to tackle as a result, I'm not sure they're going to win this one.

Ravens 20-16

Houston @ Indianapolis

I've heard this be called the biggest game in the history of the Texans, and I'm sure if you asked him Peyton Manning would say this is the biggest game of his career as well. I actually think the Texans will put up a fight because the Colts have little to no homefield advantage due to the sun coming through giant windows on either end of their stadium and blinding everyone on the field. Honestly what were they thinking when they built this place? "It'll be a good thing to blind the players. And these windows will make it look like a basketball fieldhouse, and we're in Indiana, and we like basketball." Honestly, I'll bet you someone said that verbatim.

Colts 29-24

Miami @ New England

It was during this game last year that the Wildcat broke onto the scene, and I honestly don't think I've gone a day in my life since without hearing that word. New England is coming off a bye week, but have actually had about 3 weeks off after playing Tennessee and Tampa Bay. In other words they're well rested.

Patriots 30-20

Green Bay @ Tampa Bay

Tampa is the only winless team left in the league. This isn't what you'd expect from a Raheem Morris coached group.

Packers 34-16

Kansas City @ Jacksonville

He's a man called Sting! A man called Sting!

Jaguars 24-10

Afternoon Games

Carolina @ New Orleans

The Saints are looking pretty unstoppable. Well, Unstoppable is Jake Delhomme's middle name. Oh, wait a minute, it's actually Christopher. Nevermind then, I guess I'll take the Saints.

Saints 38-17

Detroit @ Seattle

So apparently the only way the Hawks can win a game is by shutting the other team out. Thank God the Lions are coming to town.

Seahawks 31-0

Tennessee @ San Francisco

So Vince Young actually captained the Titans to their first win last week. Sure he only threw for 125 yards, but he was 15 for 18 which isn't bad for a guy with crippling depression. Maybe this guy just knows how to win, more importantly, maybe Alex Smith doesn't.

Titans 23-20 (OT)

San Diego @ New York

Here's my wacky pick of the week: Because both teams are riddled with assholes, the referees will kick everyone out of the game for egregious unsportsmanlike conduct. The game will then be decided in a Quarterback's Challenge between Phil Rivers and Eli. This will also settle the score on who got the better of the '04 draft day trade and which one is more hateable.

Giants 24-21

Sunday Night

Dallas @ Philadelphia

I talked about this with Pete (Draft Guru) on Sunday, but how long did it take the rest of you to develop a deep hatred for Miles Austin? Was it the first shot of him with a shit-eating grin on his face? The 15th? I hate this guy even more than Houshmandzadeh, and that's saying something.

Eagles 34-31

Monday Night

Pittsburgh @ Denver

At the end of every Monday night game ESPN does a little vignette with Bocephus and some cheerleaders in which he says, "See ya in (whatever city is next)" Then they show a page in a book with the next match-up written on it. At the end of last week's game it said Pittsburg at Denver. This begs the question was Bocephus in charge of the spelling?

Steelers 21-18



This should have been higher. But that's just how amazing this list is!!!

# 11: The Karate Kid

There's nothing else for you here. I'm just gonna go through the motions until someone else comments other than Erik. But no one is ruining my plan for #1. NOBODY!!!!



Most people think this movie is a chick flick... but they're wrong! Or maybe they're right... but it's actually pretty funny.

#12 A League of Their Own

Tom Hanks is real funny in this flick. Rosie O'Donell AND Madonna at their hottest!

Favorite line: " "Avoid the clap. - Jimmy Duggan" ... IT'S GOOD ADVICE!"

It's also great when Hanks calls the ump a penis with a little hat on. Or when Hanks nails the kid in the face with the mit. Watch that scene again, he really smacks him.

Anyway, nobody reads these anyway, so they'll be getting shorter and sweeter. Too bad since we're so close to the top ten. Boo hoo, waaaaaa.

Game 6

With Game 6 underway, I felt I should chime in with some more of my outstanding World Series coverage. This Series has had some very interesting individual performances. Just some quick notes about a few of them:

- Chase Utley
He's been so good that one Mustacheer actually texted me to claim he wants the M's to trade Jose Lopez and Rob Johnson for him. At first I thought he was crazy, but that was before he hit home runs 4 and 5. Barring any amazing performances from a Yankee over the two (maybe) games, Utley really deserves to be MVP regardless of who wins.

- A-Rod
He started out having an awful series. Then the Phillies beaned him three times and it woke him up. What's funny about that is he really seems like the type of guy who would have an opposite scenario play out. He's killing them through 2 games and then they bean him and he gets scared. Maybe Kate Hudson has made a real man out of him.

- Hideki Matsui
He's hammering ball like it's chicken or cow.

- Cliff Lee
I really underestimated how good this guy was. I thought he was one of those guys who had one or two lucky seasons, but he's looked like one of the best pitchers in the league.

- Kurt Russell
It looks like he is loving life right now. Hudson gets him awesome seats to every World Series game. Every time they show him he's either cracking up or has a huge smile on his face. He had a Bud Light in his hand at the end of Game 5 (guess they don't cut off movie stars in the 8th). It must be a nice change of pace from his normal routine of getting drunk on his couch while watching Overboard and wondering what happened to Goldie Hawn.

- Raul Ibanez
Good to see Raul playing well

- Matt Stairs
I love that some fat old man from Canada can be a professional athlete.
He's a true Canadian sports hero, which brings me to the ranking of Canada's All-Time Sports Heroes:
1. Gretzky
2. Terry Fox
3. Steve Nash
4. Bret Hart
5. Matt Stairs



Fitting that this film is #13, cuz the Ram had a string of bad luck towards the end of the road...

Ok, that was corny, but shockingly to most (not me) a movie about a professional wrestler wasnt:

#13 The Wrestler

I really loved this movie, and not just cuz it's about wrasslin'. If you haven't seen it, DO IT ASSHOLE!

Did it deserve Best Picture... probably not, and it didn't win, so there. But I thought all three leading roles deserved Oscars. Rourke, Tomei, and Rachel Wood. All fantastic performances. No joke here.

I had two small problems with this movie...

1) They changed Randy's theme music at the end to Sweet Child of Mine. He came out all movie to Bang your Head by Quiet Riot. No way a wrestler ever would do this. (back story is Axl Rose gave them a shitload of money to finish the film, and they did it as a thank you... Rourke even thanked him when he won the Golden Globe). And if you HAVE to use a Guns song (which otherwise, I'd have no problem with) was Sweet Child, really the right call? How about Paradise City or Welcome to the Jungle? Maybe Mr. Brownstone if you wanna get a little more poetic.



Still here?

I think Randy should have died a wrestler's death at the end. Someone should have found him in his hotel room, alone, dead from heart failure. It would have been a nice little tribute to so many of the fallen wrestlers of the past. Sounds corny again, but I'm being serious.

Anyway, whattya think of The Wrestler?

whoa, whoa, not all at once


Jim Mora

I can't find a link to Mora's press conference, but let me TRY and paraphrase. He basically said the next few weeks will be about how the Seahawks deal with adversity. They'll either start finger pointing and complaining or band together and be great men.

A quick follow up question, from I believe Art Thiel "Where is this coming from?" (and again, I'm paraphrasing). Mora replied that it wasn't coming from anywhere and he'd seen no indications that the Hawks were heading down that dark path.

There should have been another follow up question...

"Isn't that the norm then? Shouldn't we expect these players to be decent human beings who will try their best? otherwise, why even bring this to the media's attention coach Mora?"

I don't hold press conferences telling people I have no plans to shit my pants today. Why? Because no one expects me to. (or they shouldn't, anyway). Mora sounded like he was going on the offensive and maybe trying to diffuse a situation before it even got started.

I have two comments: 1) I REALLY do not like where this season is headed (see previous post about jerkface WRs) 2) I don't trust Jim Mora.

I think we're in a lot of trouble.

That being said... GO SEAHAWKS!!!
