Wisconsin Puts Hex On Favre

September 24, 2008

It looks like Pastor Jeff Casper is the reason for Brett Favre and the Jets’ demise.  I’d be willing to bet that this church has daily voodoo sessions, with the goal of making Brett’s life miserable.  I tip my cap to the fine folks of the Waupun Assembly of God.  Well played indeed!

Ok, so it wasn’t as dramatic of Farve crushing game as I predicted a few weeks ago (see previous Favre post), but this picture is awesome.  Favre has the fear of god in his eyes.

I’m not on the Cassel-train quite yet, seeing as it’s only Week 3, but I like what I see so far.  Any predictions for this Sunday against Joey “Did he really just say that?” Porter and his Flippered friends?

Koby Clemens Arrested

September 1, 2008

CHICAGO – Koby Clemens, the son of seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens, was among three Astros prospects arrested early Sunday morning following a disturbance at a Salem, Va., parking lot at 2 a.m.

Clemens, Mark Ori and Jimmy Goethals were scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning in Salem, said Astros assistant general manager Ricky Bennett, who confirmed the arrests. The Roanoke (Va.) Times reported Clemens and Ori were charged with disorderly conduct and Goethals with assault and battery.

All three spent the night in the Roanoke County-Salem jail before being released, Bennett said.

“We’re still trying to gather some information,” Bennett said. “We’re scheduled to have a court appearance tomorrow morning and that that point, based on the feedback we get, the information we get, we’ll make a decision on what type of punishment will be based.”

None of the three players played in Sunday night’s 9-7 loss to Lynchburg and won’t be in the lineup today when Salem ends its season.

“This type of behavior is not acceptable in our organization,” Bennett said.

“I’ve talked to all three players this morning and told them some type of discipline will be imposed when we get the information and we are through with the process. I’ll sit down with each player and make a decision on what type of discipline will be imposed.”

Clemens, 21, was hitting .269 with 29 doubles and 52 RBIs this season, his first as a catcher in the organization that selected him in the eighth round of the 2005 draft out of Memorial High School.

Ori, 25, is hitting .304 with 11 home runs and 89 RBIs, and Goethals, 26, is a backup catcher who’s been injured since Aug. 10

Roger Clemens, who hasn’t played this season, is currently under FBI investigation whether he lied at the Feb. 13 hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee when he claimed former trainer Brian McNamee never injected him with steroids or human grown hormone.

Looks like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Sounds like Koby and Co. have gotten themselves into some roid-rage induced shenanigans.  I don’t care how tough you are naturally or synthetically, your name is still Koby…with a “y.”  Tool.

So, I was checking out one of my favorite blogsites, http://www.barstoolsports.com, and found this beauty.  I don’t even know what to say.  I think Melky Cabrera should beat the living daylights out of this guy for wearing his shirt and giving him a bad name.   Friends don’t let friends wear ManUggs.

So begins the Favre Drama…

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y.—Brett Favre took it easy on his rocket right arm after firing a few duds earlier in the day.

“No pain, but I’m 38 years old,” the Jets quarterback said Wednesday. “It’s going to be fatigued a little bit.”

Favre took noticeably fewer snaps in the evening practice after earlier saying he would talk to coach Eric Mangini about limiting his throws.

“My arm’s kind of dragging a little bit today,” Favre said after the team’s morning session. “It’s not really sore, but just fatigued. To be honest with you, I’m surprised that, I don’t want to say I feel good, that I’ve been able to make it through every practice so far.”

Favre misfired on a handful of throws in the morning practice, short-hopping some tosses, throwing behind — or over — his receivers on others.

“I felt 38 today,” Favre said. “I’m not going to lie to you.”

“I wondered this morning when I got up, ‘What in the heck am I doing?'” Favre said. “The answer to that question is I love to play. I hate to study. At times, I hate to practice, but I love to play. I know I need to study and I know I need to practice and I know how important it is. That doesn’t mean I have to like it. The question I have to ask myself is am I willing to do that? And the answer is yes.”

And so it begins.  Some (many) have doubted my previous post about Favre potentiallly shitting the bed.  Here’s a bit of proof.  How can you be fatigued, when, you showed up LATE FOR TRAINING CAMP!?!?!?!?!!?!??!  Seriously, this man’s too old to keep playing as QB.  Can’t wait to see him get tatooed out there and be forced to retire for good.

NY Got an Old Man For Their New Stadium

Welcome to the REAL Football Conference

Welcome to the REAL Football Conference

ESPN.com -The Brett Favre era in Green Bay apparently came to an end late Wednesday as the longtime Packers star quarterback was traded to the New York Jets, Foxsports.com first reported.

The compensation, believed to be a single draft pick that rises in value depending upon how the Jets perform during the 2008 season, was confirmed by ESPN’s Michael Smith on Wednesday night.

The Jets declined to comment on the report.

Let the Brett Favre bitch slapping begin.  New England’s Mike Vrabel must be drooling right now.  Favre is going to get eaten alive in the AFC.  What a genius move putting one of the oldest and most fragile NFL quarterbacks behind one of the worst and most truly “Offensive” Lines (ranked 24th out of 32) in the game. Mangina better hope his off-season signings of Alan Faneca and Damien Woody pay off, or his new golden boy will be getting up close and personal with some of the league’s biggest and baddest sack afficianados.

As for Coles and Cotchery…sorry gentleman, but you won’t be looking at 1000+ Receiving yards if your gunslinger is too busy scraping the 30 Yd Line off of his faceguard.
