And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house! And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife! Same as it ever was…same as it ever was…same as it ever was. -Talking Heads
Just a quick one today. Quick as a licorice stick one today. Quick as a mouse click one today. Today, the good folks over at Ed The Sports Fan posted a lamentation entitled When Your Favorite Player Gets Traded. He said stuff like, “There’s nothing worse that can happen to a fan than when that fan’s favorite player…gets traded.” In light of this, and in light of the recent moves that sent Melo to the Knicks and Deron Williams to the Nets, I got to thinking. I got to thinking that so many times in sports, guys have ended up in uniforms they just don’t belong in. Uniforms they just look wrong in. Here are a few that I never got used to: Read More »

We gon’ go all night. We gon’ light it up. Like it’s dynamite! ‘Cause I told you once. Now I told you twice. We gon’ light it up. Like it’s dynamite! -Taio Cruz
Public Service Announcement: What? You didn’t know? Maybe you didn’t hear about it. You’ve been away a long time. They didn’t go up there and tell you. They didn’t go up there and tell you hockey season started last night. That’s right sports fans, the hottest game on earth is back. Back in the back of a Cadillac. Number one with a bullet, it’s a power pack. In case you missed it, here’s a power pack of notes from last night: Read More »

It takes two to make a thing go right. It takes two to make it outta sight. Hit it! -Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock
Public Service Announcement: Holy Chang and Eng Bunker, Batman! Ever since little Bron Bron decided to take his talents down to South Beach to play along side the Flash, the Dynamic Duo talk started up. That got me to thinking. I got to thinking, who are some of the best Dynamic Duos is sports history? Who are some of the best Dynamic Duos now? After the jump you can see the results for yourselves. You excited? Sure you are. Read More »

(VS. 8PM ET) Hockey Krishnas rejoice! Hockey hockey! Krishna Krishna! Oh sweet lord! This game is for number one in the West. This game is for number one in our hearts. The Sharks are coming fresh off a 4-2 win at Dallas behind captain Patrick Marleau’s two goals. Just so you know, that was Marleau’s sixth multiple-goal game this season, tying him with Sidney Crosby for second-most in the NHL, behind Alex Ovechkin’s eight. How about that? How about this: The Blackhawks aim to complete a perfect five-game homestand. They have notched three shutouts during this four-game winning streak. They have also won five in a row and 13 of their last 14 in the Windy City. Get your popcorn ready!

Nuggets 121 Hornets 63: Sweet sassy molassy! Now that’s what we like to call a good ole fashioned ass whoopin’. Just embarrassing. That 58-point embarrassment set an NBA record for embarrassments. Never before in NBA history had a road team embarrassed somebody by that much. Never ever. The biggest regular season embarrassment by a road team is Seattle’s 136-80 win at Houston back in ’86. The previous record for embarrassment by a road team in the playoffs was the Lakers’ 126-70 win against Golden State back in ’73. Chris Paul should be embarrassed. Read More »

Padres 6 Mets 5: Last night, the New York Mets did what the New York Mets do best. Last night, the Mets choked one away. Yes folks, last night the Mets lost to the Padres after taking a three run lead. It’s already the second time during this young season that the Mets lost after leading by three or more runs. And know this, last year the Mets lost fourteen games that they led by three or more runs. Know this too, that tied the Detroit Tigers for the most in the major leagues. That’s no way to win a pennant. Read More »

(VS 7:30PM ET) Face it, there’s nothing on tonight. Nothing. Only degenerate gamblers and die hard alums will be watching the NITs. At one point this season, it wouldn’t have been so far fetched to say this matchup could be a preview of the Stanley Cup Finals. Now it is. Get your popcorn ready!

A beautiful sight. We’re happy tonight. Skating in a winter wonderland. -The Andrew Sisters
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Call him the Lion in Winter. Like King Henry II himself, Chris Chelios knows “exactly what you will do, and exactly what you won’t. To those aged eyes, boy, that’s what winning looks like!” Chris Chelios is what winning looks like. Read More »

Timberwolves 120 Knicks 107: Awww, you broke your cherry. Kevin McHale earned his first win after eight losses since replacing taking over as Timberwolves‘ head coach. Well it’s about time. I was beginning to worry. So much for the Knicks big turnaround. Mike D’Antoni: ”We went through a hard stretch. Then we played a little better but didn’t win. Now we have to start finishing games up, start winning and getting in this playoff hunt.” Not like this you ain’t.
Warriors 99 Celtics 89: I couldn’t stay up for this one. I’m glad. I was getting used to all that winning. The Warriors out-scored the Celtics 52-28 over the game’s last 20 minutes and Golden State walked away with the W. This game marked only the second game in NBA history in which a team with a winning percentage of .900 or higher lost to a team with a winning percentage below .300! I understand. Long road trip on Christmas and all. You are forgiven. But, there can’t be anymore of this nonsense. King James is lurking right around the corner.
Blackhawks 5 Flames 1: Here come the Hawks, the mighty Blackhawks! The Hawks are on fire. En Flambe for all our Canadian readers. Eight straight wins hot. Behind Patrick Sharpe’s team leading 19th goal of the season, the Blackhawks’ tied a franchise record done twice before. Chicago is the only one of the NHL’s so-called “Original Six” teams that has never had a single-season winning streak of more than eight games. The longest streaks for the five other pre-expansion clubs: Bruins, 14 games; Canadiens, 12; Rangers, 10; Maple Leafs, 10; Red Wings, nine. Let’s go you Hawks, move out!
Hurricanes 5 Thashers 4: Ye ole double hat trick. Get the papers, get the papers. Carolina’s Eric Staal and Atlanta’s Bryan Little each scored three goals in the Hurricanes’ win over the Thrashers. For Staal, it was his sixth career hat trick, and second in 17 games. Staal comes from a long line of hat trickers. Staal’s second hat trick this season was the third in his family. Jordan Staal, his brother, scored three goals in the third period of Pittsburgh’s victory over Detroit earlier in the season. C’mon Mark, you’re slacking. Keep this up and it’s back to the noogies.
