HAIR IS BACK ON BROADWAY!!!

Boy was last night an evening to remember for the ages! I first would love to talk about my favorite sport for those of you out there that don't know me which is...Baseball. My favorite team besides my hometown Detroit Tigers would have to be the "Evil Empire" N.Y. Yankees. My favorite player just happened to play for the Yank's biggest nemesis, the red sox (notice, not capitalized). This pile of hair will now roam Center Field in N.Y. and bring back another glorious championship in 06!

I will now review his numbers from last season: Damon batted .316, 10 HR, 75 RBI, 117 R, and 18 SB. My prediction for Damon on the Yankees this year will be similar, but I think he may hit 5-10 more HR's because of the dimensions of Yankee Stadium. Mad respect to the red sox fans who just lost their best player besides Big Poppy and Man-Ram. Big Poppy and Man-Ram will have 20 less RBIs in 06, because Johnny Hairball is the best lead off batter in the MLB. The red sox will suck next year. They may not even make the play-off's, but yes, I admit they deserved the World Series Title, but never again in my lifetime.


Now for the best head of hair competition:




Last night Kobe Bryant "the slam dunk giant" single-handedly overshadowed the Damon news. I have to give props to Kobe for scoring 62 points in 3 quarters against the Dallas Mavericks. Isn't it odd that Kobe is so Jordanesque with the same coach on the bench? I still think L.A. is a crappy team besides Odom and Bryant. The only players on any given night that could even put up 55 points would be A.I, Kobe, or King James! Furthermore, check out the box score and you will see how big of a ball hog Kobe really is (I still have love 4 ya).

Finally, I want to wish my family a great time in Europe and I will hopefully have some pics to share from their trip in the future.

Big Up's to Billups!!!

I write on this fine winter evening about my favorite player in the NBA: Mr. Big Shot, Chauncey Billups.

Last night, Chauncey Billups put Memphis away after missing last second shots in regulation and the first overtime. Billups nailed a 15-footer with 0.3 seconds left to give the Detroit Pistons a 106-104 double OT win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Billups finished the game shooting 8-18 from the field, 10-10 from the line, 4-7 from beyond the 3-point line, and finished with 30 points and 9 assists.

This season Chauncey Billups has been one of the top PG's in the NBA. He still won't start on the Eastern Conference NBA All-Star line-up because of A.I and Dwayne Wade, but he still deserves consideration for the NBA MVP!

Billups scored 28 points and an NBA best 19 assists against the Sacramento Kings last Wednesday night. Chauncey is averaging 19 points per game, 2.6 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 2.3 3-pointers/game this season.
MVP CHAUNCEY?


ANOTHER TROPHY FOR DETROIT?
My tip of the week...bet on the Pistons and take the over every game the rest of the year. Go ahead quit your job, buy yourself a new car, you'll be liquid by the end of the season.
I'm rich biatch!

FIRE MILLEN!!!



















I want to start this post tonight by stating that I truly feel for the die hard Lion's fans. I myself have been a Detroit Lion's fan since I was a very young boy. So it was strange that I didn't even feel the urge to watch the game last night. I looked up at the television only a handful of times, because I already knew the outcome.

I advised my friends who bet on the NFL, that once Mariucci was fired, bet against the Lions for the rest of the season. These players have nothing to play for anymore besides their contracts. I don't even think they care about the city they play in or even for their interim coach. Now here's where I'm going with this: The players definitely pretend to love the Ford family because that's who signs their checks, but when it comes to Matt Millen, we'll let the pictures speak for themselves...




























I want to thank "The 30 year old Virgin" for his pictures from the Detroit-Green Bay game last Sunday night. And thanks to Sports Radio 1130 WDFN "The Fan" for holding the "Angry Fan March" in Detroit.

I myself at one time respected Matt Millen. I mean he did bring championships to 4 cities in:
Super Bowls XV and XVIII with the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, Super Bowl XXIV with the San Francisco 49'ers, and Super Bowl XXVI with the Washington Redskins. Millen also made his mark in the NFL with a distinguished 12-year playing career at linebacker for Oakland/L.A. Raiders (1980-88), S.F. 49'ers (1989-90) and Washington Redskins (1991). He was the only player in NFL history to earn 4 Superbowl rings with 3 different teams.

Millen's credentials as a player could have got him hired by any team in the NFL and possibly even elected as the Governor of Minnesota. Then this happened...
Matt Millen was appointed President and CEO on January 9th, 2001. He only inherited 3 players on the current roster, DE Jared Devries, K Jason Hanson, and FB Corey Schlesinger. His 2003 and 2004 draft picks were acclaimed by the national media as the very best picks in the entire draft. In addition to his draft picks, Millen hired fired Head Coach Steve Mariucci, who helped the San Francisco 49'ers to four 10-win seasons. In my opinion, the best pick-up's on draft day made by Millen were: WR Roy Williams with the 7th pick in 2004 and RB Kevin Jones in the 1st round (30th overall) in 2004.

Thus I ask, why do the Fords think that a hard-hitting player like Millen would be a successful President? Do on-field skills really translate to the front office? Did Millen really need to come to Detroit to try and win a Super Bowl for the pathetic Lions? Ponder that and comment below.

I'm out and congrats to my bro Nachem a.k.a. "the dinosaur" for graduating from UofM!
