Good Morning World…here’s a lovely round up of some stuff you need to familiarize yourself with to get on my level (Link probably NSFW, unless your allowed to chief herb at work or your boss LOVES Wiz Khalifa).
In the game of the day, Barcelona beat Real Madrid in a game that featured a pretty ridiculous goal from Lionel Messi and a pretty dirty play by someone named Marcelo (to my knowledge he is NOT in the Porch Crickets). That Messi guy does pretty well for himself.
The NBA lockout continues, much to the chagrin of one Mindy Carey. However, Under Armour doesn’t like Nike, and Brandon Jennings doesn’t like Kobe, or something. Maybe because Kobe can do this? I’m no NBA lockout fan, but this pro player pickup ball stuff is kind of cool, for now.
With all the focus on the Miami Hurricanes “scandal” (the real victim? poor Teddy Dupay!) the Texas A&M Aggies aren’t the only ones saved from the NCAA spotlight. Some fairly important Oregon Ducks football team members were caught going 118mph in a car that smelled like weed. They received a citation. Sounds about right.
In keeping with the anti-Jacob theme (he’s a Real Madrid fan) I wonder if Romo wore a paperboy Starter cap while playing Hide-And-Seek at his bachelor party. Between Romo and Mark Sanchez, I almost feel like a former dog-fighting QB. Who is awesome and humble and making the most of his second chance and deserves a Super Bowl oh God he deserves a Super Bowl please let him win a Super Bowl.
A night after reaching 22 hits, the White Sox managed a whopping 4 in a loss to the Indians. The Tigers also lost, because the Tigers know exactly what they have to do to keep the White Sox at least 3 and a half games at bay. This is what I like to call cruel hindsight. The Nationals were smart for not re-signing a guy hitting .160 with 12719 strikeouts this year. Brilliant. By the way, when Adam Dunn goes 1-5 with 4 Ks, his batting average goes up. Think about that for a minute.

Speaking of the Nationals, I simply cannot take the gross injustices facing Theodore Roosevelt, everyone’s favorite President (or at least top 5) anymore at Nationals home games. Let the guy win a race! Staying with the DMV theme, Chris Davis injured his shoulder and could possibly be out for the season by sleeping on it wrong. Reports of Davis injuring the shoulder while sleeping in the dugout trying to watch the Orioles have not been confirmed.
Are you ready for some football? I am not, because as of this moment my DirecTV is out (been out since this past weekend). Hopefully I get it back in time to watch my Eagles in Pittsburgh tonight. Either way, I should be able to finagle a free meal out of Coach K tonight. Let’s stay healthy boys! Enjoy your day.
