Graham's Random Rants

Let this be a lesson to you on the Northside. If you give up a game winning grand slam to AJ Pierzinski, you get a one way ticket to Iowa. Maybe we'll see you in August, Neal.

So, let me get this straight. With less than a minute to go, Lebron James gets the ball into the paint, five feet from the hoop, no less than two times, and he doesn't take a shot. Hmmm... That doesn't sound like money to me. Except on those close up shots of his shoes.

Where's the "Hunter Pence, NL Player of the Week" post, Styles?!

I find it curious that the Yankees get Giambi right about the same time he "admits" the first time he used steroids, and they say and do nothing. Oh yeah, he was ripping the cover off the ball then. But, when the back-loaded deal gets to the loaded part, and he says "we" shouldn't have done "that stuff", they want to void his deal. Business is business. Produce, and they'll put their heads in the sand. Slump, and it's Hasta La Vista. Nice homerun today though, JG. And, with the Yanks beating the Sawx 6-2 to start the three game series, the talk of voiding will have to wait another day.

Ditto for Alex. Those HR's in the win over the Mets and then today in the W over Boston quickly cools the "we know you're a perennial MVP and all, but we still think you suck" talk. Hey, bring him to ChiTown. Sweet Lou will take him anyday, and A-Rod will play for Pinella anytime.

I'm sick of these "Click It or Ticket" bullshit commercials. It's not to "save lives". Anyone with half a brain knows that. It's to save the Big Insurance Companies big cash. Why do you think they lobbied for the laws so hard?

Speaking of commercials that piss me off, can we ditch the "VW's are cheap, so don't kill yourself" garbage? Seriously. Yeah, I can sleep better now... Commercialism/Consumerism at it's finest. Or worst.

Is it going to be San Antonio v. Detroit again in the NBA Finals? Does anyone outside of Mowtown and the Riverwalk really care? Hey NBA, how's it feel that NASCAR really kicks your ass?

Why is there still the WNBA? Gives young ladies something to shoot for. Role models and all that. Sure. If playing for crowds one-third of the size of the average Women's Tennessee NCAA game makes you feel special, then by all means, go for it. I'm pretty sure Arena Football is going to outdraw/outview ya, if it already hasn't done so.

Not that I give two shits about that stupid indoor "football" crap.

Chris Henry's agent says his client did not fail the test. What else would you say when you're losing a big chunk of your meal ticket? OK, insert "allegedly" as many times as necessary in yesterday's post. Happy now? I'm sure parents of young teenage girls across the country feel safer already.

Tim Wakefield allows the 2nd most stolen bases amongst active MLB pitchers. Not unusual, considering he's a knuckler and all. But what is odd is that Greg Maddux is #1. Of course, that's just because he could care less about anyone not holding a bat. Or maybe he's just slow to the plate.

Clinton Portis says people should mind their own business and let Mike Vick kill, fight, and mame dogs (allegedly). Thanks for letting us know you do it too, CP. You idiot. Oh, and when told it's a felony to do such a thing, the genius Portis responded, "it can't be that bad of a crime". Ahhh, the sound of stupidity is so... infuriating.

Houston fires Jeff VanGundy and hires Rick Adelman. Guess that means Skip To My Lou will get to push the ball. Finally.

Alright, I'm done for now. Later.
