Dutch Quad Represent!

Looks like the Danes are indeed Great again. UAlbany held on to defeat Vermont 60-59 to win the America East Conference Tournament Championship and will get another crack at the NCAA tournament next week. There's no doubt about it. They're a DI Powerhouse.

R.Kelly Airlines....

Off-Duty NWA Worker Charged With Assault On Flight

(WCCO) Minneapolis An off-duty Northwest Airlines employee was arrested after a woman on a flight from Seattle complained that the man had ejaculated on her.The FBI identified the man as Samuel Oscar Gonzalez, 20, of Lakewood, Wash. He was charged in federal court with simple assault, a misdemeanor.It happened on the redeye Monday morning from Seattle to Minneapolis. The woman was headed back to college.Near the end of the flight, the FBI said Gonzalez sat next to the woman as she was trying to sleep. He touched her, which she described as spooning, lifted her shirt and then got up and left. Court documents said she felt a warm fluid on her back, clothes and seat after he walked away. She told the officers he had ejaculated on her. The woman told the flight attendants about the incident. They moved her to another seat and called police from the air. The crew also moved the man to a seat near the front of the plane until the end of the flight. Northwest Airlines Corp. said the flight crew asked that police meet the flight from Seattle when it arrived early Monday in Minneapolis, and that's where officers arrested Gonzalez.The victim told her boyfriend she was told Gonzalez is a Northwest employee."I know she was really upset, just kind of confused about what's going on, what's happening," said the victim's boyfriend, Mark, who asked to be identified only by his first name.Northwest said that Gonzalez was an equipment service worker, a category that includes baggage handlers, but said he was not working at the time.They released a statement that said, “The NWA employee has been suspended pending a review of the incident. Northwest is cooperating fully with law enforcement authorities on this matter."The FBI said Gonzalez was detained after his initial appearance in federal court on Monday. He could face up to six months in jail.

This guy is a true American!!!
For the video clip of this great story:

???Reuben Droughns???

I know he is an insurance policy, but Rueben Droughns??? Why??? Did we acquire him because he is another wife beater? His stats are mediocre to good. He is garbage, but then again he did not cost us that much. I guess we are really hoping now to sign WR Curtis. I'm not a big fan of this move.

Looking real good Eddie Furlong:

Ummmm..... Awesome tattoo dude.

Don't mess with this man.. he is serious... serious about the dolphins... and about shitty tattoos.... Don't look him in the eye, he may become hostile.. You can see many more of these specimens at Sadly, Loubag's powder blue Yankee tattoo is not on display.

RIP Baby, baby

Hard to believe it's been 10 years since Biggie was killed (I was a freshman in college). Woke up foggy that Sunday morning and my suitemate Neil from Shrub Oak came in my room and told me Biggie was shot and killed. I told him that's not funny. He told me to put the TV on. I did and saw the news. It was surreal. Ready to Die was blaring loudly from all corners of Dutch Quad that day. Even though Tupac died shortly before, it didn't seem right for Biggie to be killed like that. He seemed like a good guy. Sure he rapped about robbing pregnant women and raping Mom's but he made it amusing. He was only 24 years old. I remember when Juicy came out and he was rapping about how he made it and what not. I thought, "He hadn't made it yet, why was he talking like he did." Well he knew better than me. He was one of a kind, and he left a big hole in the rap world that hasn't been and is not gonna be filled. You know how everything changed after 9/11/01? Well, 3/9/97 was rap's 9/11/01. RIP Biggie.

The Beer Launcher!

This is the greatest invention ever! Its even better than Lou's kegerator, b/c you have to get up to use that! The accuracy and distance is amazing. I will be sure to purchase one asap. Here's the link to the video, it is pretty impressive. Alcoholics UNITE!!!

Love Baseball But Hate Hockey? Here is Your Answer

Now I'm not Canadian, but I'm pretty sure you aren't supposed to swing your hockey stick like a Louisville Slugger. Chris Simon of the Islanders has now officially made me a fan of the new baseball/hockey/gladiator match hybrid sport that is sweeping the nation.

Feast your eyes on this, eh:

John Popper is a Straight Thug

Proving that playing the harmonica is just as gangsta as popping Cristal, John Popper of Blues Traveler was arrested yesterday after speeding at 111 mph in his drug and weapon laden car. Handguns, rifles, tasers, pot, night vision goggles, Poppy didn't limit himself to a single genre of contraband.

I guess his weight loss really went to his head and he decided he needed to start popping caps in anybody who used to call him "The Fat Guy from Blues Traveler."

It is only a matter of time before Jared from Subway goes on a killing spree.


It didn't take the Ravens long to fill their void at running back.
A day after former Baltimore back Jamal Lewis signed a one-year deal with Cleveland, the Ravens traded for Buffalo Bills running back Willis McGahee, The Baltimore Sun reported on its Web site Thursday.
Baltimore will send three draft picks to Buffalo in exchange for the former Miami star. The deal is contingent upon McGahee passing a physical, the newspaper reported.
"We're getting a dynamic back who has the potential to diversify our running game," Ravens coach Brian Billick said, according to The Sun.
"This is a runner who can make people miss," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said.

Answer the Bell: MMA Edition

And for your main event....2 seconds of amazing action!!

At least the schools are good down there...

Looks like Mike Hampton (Comeback Player of the Year, Cy Young favorite, champion of NY area schools, and Super Dwarf) can't quite get his swing back to where he wants it. I really feel bad for the guy and the entire Atlanta Braves organization. It's amazing what a contract worth 121 million over 8 years will get you nowadays. Don't worry Atlanta, I heard Jose Lima's still available.

O.J. did it?

Usually one to steer clear of controversy, OJ Simpson and his slow-moving sperm want in on the Anna Nicole Smith baby's daddy sweepstakes. Oh, so now OJ's cool with DNA testing? I'm no expert, but looking at the baby it doesn't appear to be OJ's.

Unless maybe the chocolate-face is developed later in life or something? Judging from this stock-footage of Anna and OJ's first encounter, they did have a long lasting relationship though. Certainly is a pattern developing with OJ and dead blondes...

Really? I dont believe that..hahaha

Controversy just seems to follow John Rocker.
Hours after reports surfaced that Rocker's name was on the client list of a pharmacy under investigation for steroids distribution, the publicist for the former Braves closer said Rocker has admitted to using human growth hormone, the New York Daily News reported on its Web site Tuesday night.

Rocker, however, insists he only took HGH for medical reasons.
"That was a growth hormone that was prescribed by a doctor in relation to his rotator cuff surgery in 2003, so I don't really think there is anything to the story," Debi Curzio, Rocker's publicist, told the Daily News.
The contention that HGH was used in post-surgical treatment, however, goes against generally accepted medical practices, the newspaper reported. HGH is normally used to pituitary problems and other growth-related issues. Furthermore, it would still have to be explained why Rocker decided to use Allied Pharmacy of Mobile, Ala., one of the pharmacies involved in the alleged online steroids ring.
This, of course, is not the first time John Rocker has been in the public spotlight under contentious conditions. In a January 2000 issue of Sports Illustrated, Rocker took shots at minority groups from Asians to homosexuals to Jews.
"Imagine having to take the 7 train to the ballpark, looking like you're riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing."
Rocker last appeared in a major league game in 2003, for Tampa Bay. He attempted another comeback in 2005, but was never added to a big-league roster.

In Memory of Scooter Libby

With today's guilty verdict in the Scooter Libby case, I've decided to post one of my favorite You Tube clips that is floating around on the internet. (For those of you not following the case, Libby was the former chief of staff for Dick Cheney who lied to FBI agents and lied on the stand regarding a reported leak of the identity of an undercover CIA agent.)

The scene is New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina....Dick Cheney is giving some interview where he is lying through his filthy little mouth....I mean, where he is talking about the recovery efforts in the Gulf Coast region.

About 24 seconds in you will hear the voice of a guy who is A) probably already dead because of what he said B) the subject of tax audits for the rest of his life C) my hero.

Feast your eyes on this:

"Antiaging" means "Steriods"

There is a new article on about the busted steriod ring in Florida. Apparently the call centers for the operation were run out of Antiaging/wellness centers like the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center. That just sounds shady. Reminds me of Tokyo Massage, the 24 hr massage parlor on the corner of Linclon and Pico Blvds in Santa Monica. Wonder what goes on there. (if anyone wants to know, ask Irish commedian Aiden Bishop to tell the"Jerk, Suck or Fuck?" story) There are some new names listed in the article, most of them being of the "No Shit"variety. Here is the List:
1. Gary Mathews Jr: Career year in 2006 at age 32. No Shit

2. Kurt Angle: Ummm, no shit. I would be more shocked if you found me a pro wrestler who didn't use steriods.

3. Evan Fields (Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield): That is the worst fake name I have ever seen (best fake name: Ron Mexico). Hey Evander, FYI, if you are buying illegal shit and you have the presence of mind to use a fake name, try not to use any part of your real name. They might be able to trace it back to you. Something to think about. (below is a picture of the exact moment The Warrior thought of his fake name)

4. Jerry Hairston Jr: I am shocked at this one. If I were Jerry, I would have tried to get a refund.

5. David Bell: Refund

6. Jose Canseco: No Shit

7.John Rocker: You mean the giant redneck who can't control his anger and throws 99 mph took steriods?

There is the list. No shockers. I am sure some more names will trickle out as they go through all of the documents that they seized. Good Times

So what's wrong with this guy?

Reports say the Jets are giving up a 2nd round pick (37th overall) and getting back Thomas Jones and a 2nd round pick (63rd overall) from the Bears. When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, especially for the Jets.
Jones is fresh off a season with 1200+ rushing yards and good showings in the Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game. It's a good thing he has to pass a physical before the trade is complete, because something sure looks suspicous here. My guess is he just got Parkinson's Disease. Care to speculate?

Change of Uniform...

This marine lost part of his finger in Iraq, from an IED, and is now in Spring training with the Padres/minor leaguers. He throws over 90 mph. Here;'s the link for the full story:

You should be dancing, yeaahhhh

With a 59-49 victory yesterday over Boston University, the SUNY Albany Great Danes are on the verge of their 2nd (consecutive) NCAA tournament bid. Standing in the way is the venerable, top-seeded Vermont Catamounts in a rematch of last year's conference final. The Danes have a tough fight ahead of them, as they will be playing in Burlington where they haven’t won in 9 tries. The conference final will take place this coming Saturday at noon and will actually be aired on ESPN2, giving hundreds of followers another reason to wake up and drink this coming weekend. With senior guard and repeating America East Player of the Year Jamar Wilson leading the way, can my alma-mater create confusion once again in the brackets by leading the uninformed to assume UAB means the University of Alabama Birmingham? Time will tell. Here’s hoping they take it easy on the Ben & Jerry’s, pot, and maple syrup and come away from Vermont with a victory. Maybe this year they can do more than put a scare in a top-seed. It’s never happened, but one of these days a 1 seed will lose to a 16. God help them when it does.
