Breakfast with the Hysterics



* This was possibly the shittiest weekend of baseball played by the Red Sox all year. On Friday there was no game, God/Buddha/Allah/Joseph Smith decided that there would be no game as it poured all night. Saturday another god descended on Fenway, this time it was the god of Canadian baseball Roy Halladay. The assassin from up north has been incredible against the Sox, losing his first game 1-0, and only allowing 1 run in Saturdays game. The game was over before it even began, Byrd looked good/not great and kept the Sox in striking decent. Sunday was much much worse. Beckett got absolutely lit up, and couldn't escape the 2nd inning. Just when you think Josh Beckett has turned the corner, he does a complete 180 and looks more like the '06 Beckett than the '07 one. The Jays absolutely destroyed our "ace", scoring 6 runs in the first inning and 2 more in the 2nd, led by Alex Rios who had four doubles. To be honest I was at a wedding so I missed the whole game, and I thank christ I did because I probably would have thrown my computer through the television.

* The "Jesus Christ our lives are over if Tom Brady gets hurt Tour" continued in Tampa Bay on Sunday. Matt Cassell played somewhat better, almost getting picked off on his first throw of the game, and would have been if the TB Linebacker actually could catch a football. Kevin O'Connell played like total shit, throwing 6-15 with one interception, looking like a fourth round pick. The Pats really need to find a viable backup QB, because if Brady goes down we can expect to lose every game he is out. The Pats had most of the regulars in on offense: Welker, Moss, and Maroney all played, and it didn't matter the Pats offense played like shit. The Bucs on the other hand looked sharp with Luke McCown, and Brian Griese completing 16-20 against the Pats D who struggled to stop them. The lone Patriots touchdown came in the fourth quarter when Heath Evans jumped into the end zone from the one yard line. Watching these games, I tell myself that they will be fine, its only preseason, but there is still a part of me that worries about the Pats this year.

* The And1 NBA Olympics tour of destruction continued this weekend as the US beat the piss out of Spain and Germany. Pau Gasol and Dirk Nowitzki stood no chance against the Americans who alley ooped, 360, and tomahawk dunked all over the opponents The Americans are playing so well, that the inevitable collapse of this team will be even more shocking. The only question remains what will happen to cause the Americans to lose? Carmelo Anthony gang related fight with the Chinese mafia? Kobe Bryant leaves his wife for a Chinese prostitute? Lebron James receives 60 million dollars guaranteed and defects to China? We shall see.

This weekend sucked total balls. I slept through the Red Sox game (work overnight), and glad I did. Saw the Pats down 7-0 and said the hell with it...and glad I did.


Is it time for the Celtics to come save us already?

I tagged it after the fact, otherwise I would have called Dave a retard for missing it.

Hold on. Boston fans freaking out over a team that won the world series and another that lost ONE game last year. NO WAY. Next they are gonna tell me that the Twins or White Sox are close to catching them in the wild card...Huh? Oh. Half game, huh? What the fuck happened? Bullpen, huh? They TRADED Manny away? You don't say.

I for one will not be satisfied until Boston has won the National Spelling Bee, defeated the Klingon menace, and established Stanley Cup victories for all future seasons in perpetuity.
