How You Found My Blog: Yankees Evil Empire

26 07 2007

Now this is a search term I can really relate to! In this installment of “How You Found My Blog”, I tackle this weeks most popular click-through in relation to the blog, and my personal favorite so far, “Yankees Evil Empire”. Why do I enjoy this search term so much? It’s actually very simple. I’m a Mets fan!

Now, when I saw I enjoy the search term, it’s because I can openly and honestly say that I “despise” the Yankees. But why, you ask? Let me breakdown what, exactly, I despise and don’t despire about the Yankees.

Yankees Evil Empire

I don’t despise the players on the club. How could you? Derek Jeter is going to the hall, as well as Mariano. Plus, the players around them are damn good as well! And A-Rod? Any Yankees fan who hates this guy, should be stripped of his/her fandom. Seriously, Alex Rodriguez is going to crush Barry Bonds’ eventual Single Season Home Run Record. He’s only 31 years of age and he’s just 1 dinger shy of 500. If anybody should hate this guy, it’s opposing pitchers! The Yankees need to keep Alex Rodriguez at all costs.

What I do despise (which is more like a “who”), is the *stereotypical* Yankees Fan. I’m only singling out a specific demographic of fan. Why? Because not all fans of a sports team are bad people. Not all fans are bad fans. But there’s a certain breed of New York baseball fans that are so despicable, and so disrespectful to other fans, and people. Let’s dive into an experience at Yankee Stadium, as told by a good friend of mine (who when told I was going to blog about it, wished to remain anonymous).

My good friend was attending a Yankees/Mariners game at the Stadium a few years ago. This friend was neither a Yankees nor Mariners fan, but just a fan of the game. A Mariners player whacked a home run into the crowd, which my friend then obtained after the ball had bounced around the seats a bit. After being told to throw the ball back into play by the fans around the area, my friend then hid the ball from sight and kept it. After being boo’d intensely and a little name-calling, my friend felt the cold chill of beer all over. Why? Because a couple of fans (who were obviously drunk and rowdy) decided it was cool to douse someone in beer because that person wasn’t a Yankees Fan in their own stadium.

Remember, I’m only talking about the tiny (less than 1%) of fans that would do something like pour beer over somebody’s head. I’m not only a Mets fan, but a fan of the game, and I respect every fan’s opinion. I know that the story above is a rare one, and every team has its group of disgusting fans… but this is a post specific to the most popular click-through at the moment, so I’m just catering to the readers. But I’m curious… Do you have any bad experiences with Yankees fans? Maybe a bad experience with fans of a team aside from the Yankees? I’d love to hear them! Leave them in a comment, and leave them anonymously if you wish.

So how can I end a post like this on a perfect note? With a little Zen, of course! Hey Peter, tell us about the latest in-game craze at the ballpark, will ya?

Buttscratcher? Buttscratcher!

Pr0n At First Sight

25 04 2007

If the title of this post left you wondering if I’ve ever washed my mouth out with soap, then you should read another blog, or read this.

Now, on to the Porn! Huh? What? Did I say porn? I meant video games! Really? Yep! I stumbled upon a hilarious list of Video Games titles that sound Porn.. or how IGN put it, “Pr0n”. I thought I’d share a few of them with you.

#7 on IGN’s list of Games that Sound Like Pr0n is “Meat Gone Bad”. That’s right… Meat Gone Bad. The release of this game has to be the weirded thing I’ve ever heard of since Ron Jeremy got back into Porn after his stint on The Surreal Life. What’s even funnier is IGN’s description of the game, stating that it involves “squirting a gelatinous substance on incoming slabs of spoiled meat“. Yummy! I’d share a screenshot of the game itself, but I can’t seem to find one anywhere. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing…

#6 on the list is “Sticky Balls“.
Sticky Balls

If Gizmondo actually succeeded, this title would be a must-have in any porn studio! Right? Well, Gizmondo didn’t succeed, and here’s why!

#5 on the list is “Fat Worm Blows a Sparky“.Fat Worm Blows a Sparky

Okay… take a moment to laugh… and stop. Yes, that’s the correct title. No, I didn’t make that up. In IGN’s description of the game, it states “In an impressive display of restraint, the review goes on for over 1,000 words without making a single joke about the title“. Somehow I find that extremely hard to believe. Come on… Fat Worm? Sparky? Blows!?

Wanna see more? Click Here and read the entire list!

Now, on to my Daily Moment of Zen! In tribute of Pr0n, I give you…





Sh-Sh-Sh-Sharpton and the Don

10 04 2007

Sweet Elton John reference in the title if I may say so… After reading my friend’s blog, I decided to post my own addition to the blogging world, and share the above video. Did you watch the whole video? Yes? No? Either way, I’m sure you’ve heard or read about Don Imus’ remarks when he was talking about the Women’s NCAA Championship Game (More specifically, the Rutgers University Women’s team).

I’ll share my own input, but I’ll start by showing you an excerpt from a George Carlin show. The following words were spoken during one of Carlin’s most memorable performances (which can be heard on his “Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics CD) during a bit he calls “They’re Only Words”.

[ Note: The Following is an excerpt from a **George Carlin** show. If the use of some of the following words offend you, please read another blog, or turn on American Idol ]

“There’s a different group to get pissed off at you in this country for everything your not supposed to say. Can’t say Nigger, Boogie, Jig, Jigaboo, Skinhead, Moolimoolinyon, Schvatzit, Junglebunny. Greaser, Greaseball, Dago, Guinea, Whop, Ginzo, Kike, Zebe, Heed, Yid, Mocky, Himie, Mick, Donkey, Turkey, Limey, Frog. Zip, Zipperhead, Squarehead, Crout, Hiney, Jerry, Hun, Slope, Slopehead, Chink, Gook. There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of those words in and of themselves. Their only words. It’s the context that counts. It’s the user. It’s the intention behind the words that makes them good or bad. The words are completely neutral. The words are innocent. I get tired of people talking about bad words and bad language. Bullshit! It’s the context that makes them good or bad. The context. That makes them good or bad. For instance, you take the word “Nigger.” There is absolutely nothing wrong with the word “Nigger” in and of itself. It’s the racist asshole who’s using it that you ought to be concerned about. We don’t mind when Richard Pryer or Eddie Murphy say it. Why? Because we know their not racist. Their Niggers! Context. Context. We don’t mind their context because we know their black. Hey, I know I’m whitey, the blue-eyed devil, paddy-o, fay gray boy, honkey, mother-fucker myself. Don’t bother my ass. Their only words. You can’t be afraid of words that speak the truth, even if it’s an unpleasant truth, like the fact that there’s a bigot and a racist in every living room on every street corner in this country.”

[ If you’ve heard or seen this part of that show, then you’ll remember the incredible applause he received after he finished this part of his show ]

Now, here comes my take on all of this, and I’ll even do it without making any mention of Al Sharpton or Don Imus (Whoops, I already did, so forget that challenge).

– Do I think it’s okay that Imus said what he said? I’m a little mixed. If it were Satellite Radio, he could say whatever the heck he wanted to, just like Howard Stern… But FM Radio is a different territory than Satellite Radio. Public Domain is a touchy subject, right?

– Do I agree with Sharpton’s suggestion of firing Don Imus, or forcing him to resign? Not one bit. I’ll agree to that when every person in the world who has denounced the Holocaust is thrown into a maximum security prison.

– Do I agree with the 2 week suspension of Don Imus? Yes. it was something that had to be done… but I also feel he should stop apologizing. He’s apologized enough. He should apologize one last time, tell everyone it was a joke on his show (that makes fun of everyone anyway), and move on.

It’s not like we’re asking George Washington to return from the dead to apologize for Slavery during the birth of our great nation. Wait… it is? Make sure he brings Adolf Hitler with him too. I want a written apology for the extermination of my relatives… Oh yeah, have him title the letter, “Mein Apology”.

Peter Griffin, give me some consistency…. and my Daily Moment of Zen… please?

That’s better… Mexican and Jews in the same clip. It makes me proud to be both! But hey, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad…
