FINAL DESTINATION: ATLANTA

Posted by HG on April 30, 2007

In the movie Final Destination death hunts down those that have escaped it’s clutches. In Atlanta, trouble chases the football team. Quarterback Michael Vick has had his well publicized offseason problems, defensive lineman Jonathan Babineaux allegedly whacked his girlfriend’s dog, linebacker Demorrio Williams tore a pectoral muscle lifting weights, and over the weekend defensive lineman Rod Coleman ruptured his quadriceps in a boating accident. The problems haven’t been limited to the current roster as former Falcon Ray Buchanan was arrested in February for passing bad checks, and Ashley Ambrose was picked up for allegedly abusing his wife. And just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, the team signs Joey Harrington.

THIS BIRD’S FOR YOU

Posted by HG on April 30, 2007

I don’t know shit about Nascar. I’m not saying I hate Nascar. I can’t. I don’t follow it. I can repeat some phrases I hear.. restrictor plates, drafting, and Daytona.. I can even name a few drivers, but I only know one thing about the sport. Nascar fans hate Jeff Gordon.

I’m not sure what Gordon did to get on everybody’s bad side, but he loses even when he wins. Try to honor Dale Earnhardt, Jeff’s an asshole. Win a race, they’re throwing crap at his car. Nascar fans are lucky Ron Artest wasn’t riding shotgun.

NO TIME FOR MESSING AROUND

Game 5 tonight Houston. What you got? Are we gonna see the team from games 1 and 2 or the disappointment from games 3 and 4? I know the Rockets aren’t gonna let us down. Fellas, let’s start wrapping this thing up. Have you seen how the Warriors are playing lately? You don’t wanna go 7 games if G. State’s gonna be maxin and relaxin after 5 or 6. Here’s my positivity for the day: THE ROCKETS WILL WIN TONIGHT.

Red Rowdies are you with me?

To be honest, I couldn’t make out any words other than “Houston Rockets”.

Here’s a little more motivation.. The Chuckster dissing Yao (and paying for it):

We all know the Charles’ history for losing bets. I hope he has Utah tonight.

“THE BONECRUSHER” CHANGING NICKNAME TO “PRISON BITCH”

Posted by HG on April 30, 2007

Former Purdue football player Kyle Williams won’t be playing ball anytime soon unless it’s in the “Inmates vs Guards” game. Williams has been found guilty of battery and confinement stemming from two attacks on female students at Purdue University in 2005. He was also convicted of attempted rape in one of the cases.

That’s pretty deep shit but it gets deeper. Williams is facing charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, attempted kidnapping, aggravated battery and unlawful restraint of a woman after he allegedly attacked a woman in February 2006.. WHILE HE WAS OUT ON BOND FROM THE OTHER CASES.

Williams calls himself “The Bonecrusher”.. He even has it tattooed on his arm. Unfortunately he lived up to his nickname during his attacks by repeatedly punching these young women in the face in order to subdue them. If you need anymore proof of this guy’s mental problems check out this quote from Kyle via Purdue’s intercollegiate athletics website:

“You have to be nasty, you have to want to hit. You have to have an insane demeanor. When I am on the field, I am not myself. I get all mad, and am not in my right mind.”

I know football is a gladiator sport, but he still sounds unstable. I’m glad he’ll be off the streets for the next 6 to 40 years.

GOLDEN STATE DUMMY

Posted by HG on April 29, 2007

 The defending Western Conference champions are on the ropes.. Dallas had to be nervous going into the game after watching the other half of last year’s NBA Finals get eliminated. It wasn’t an elimination game, but choking off a 7 point lead in the fourth quarter and then having to drive through Oakland to the airport probably made the Mavs feel like the series is over. The Warriors are feelin themselves after going up 3-1. Check out this video from the locker room after the game.

In the long history of things that go together like peanut butter and jelly, rum and coke, and chicken and waffles, there have never been two things that make a better match than Oakland and Stephen Jackson. Who here would be surprised if S-Jacks was ghost ridin his whip and turnin tight ones at midcourt? Not me..

Speaking of “Ghost Riding”, remember when the police had to do it?

If you’re afraid of the sideshowin, goin dumb Oakland, check out Sherry’s Oak-Town.

See, Oakland’s not all bad.. PLUS.. Jessica Alba sits courtside at Warriors’ games. JESSICA ALBA. I’ll take her over Penny Marshall or Dyan Cannon any day.

Neither Stephen Jackson or the Hyphy movemnent had anything to do with this. Thank you Yahoo

EVERYBODY TAKE A DEEP BREATH

Posted by HG on April 29, 2007

The good news is the series is holding to form and if that continues, the Rockets are on to round two. The bad news..well, where do I start? Too many turnovers, un-Rocket like defense, and some over officious jerks working the game all contributed to the game 4 loss. I was happy to see more people getting involved on offense, but I’m worried about Deron Williams and Okur waking up for the Jazz.

I’m trying to be as positive as I can about the situation. I’m trying to attract only the best circumstances for the Rockets. Obviously I’m not trying hard enough… Or maybe it’s you. Yeah, it’s you. Step it up. Repeat “The Rockets are great and they are going to win this series” 5 times in the morning and 5 more times before you go to sleep.

It’s not time to panic, the sky’s not falling yet BUT winning game 5 is a must. I’m being positive and everything.. Trust me I am.. I just don’t wanna see Houston having to win in Utah to stay alive.

THAT’S WHAT TIME IT IS

Posted by HG on April 28, 2007

A little reading music….. 

The Houston Rockets are the better team in this series. The season numbers say so, and the duo of McGrady and Ming say so too. Tonight is the night to take control of this series and let Utah know that their playoff stay is coming to an end. Here are my keys to a game four Rocket victory:

  • Somebody besides Yao, T-Mac, or Battier needs to step up. A solid ten points from someone other than those 3 will go a long way.
  • Work the ball inside out. Utah has no answer for Yao. I don’t see why he can’t drop 30 tonight.
  • Flip Utah’s game 3 script. Let Carlos Boozer get his and shutdown everybody else. Giricek, Harpring, and Millsap can not combine for 30+.
  • Shot selection. This is mainly aimed at Tracy, but as a whole…running the offense isn’t always a bad thing.
  • Big surprise for this one… Take care of the ball. 19 turnovers for 17 Utah points and the lack of role player scoring were the biggest reasons for the game 3 loss.
  • If all else fails, hire Flava Flav to cut fingers off.

ALL GOOD THINGS ARE COMING TO THE ROCKETS TODAY

THE HOUSTON ROCKETS ARE IN CONTROL OF THE SERIES

Posted by HG on April 27, 2007

I don’t know how I could be more positive.. The Rockets need to shake game 3 off and they will. Call it a fluke, call it the ugliest game you’ve ever seen.. Either way, the Rockets will get back to their winning ways on Saturday.
