TWD Saturday Sports Thread #1 For 11/30/13: The Malzahn Miracle 2: The Sequel (Final Recaps)

Iron Bowl Final: Auburn 34, Alabama 28 

Even with maybe the greatest conclusion ever in NCAA football history, Auburn or Missouri may still not go to the BCS title game if Ohio State and Florida State win their respective conference title games next Saturday. It is something that is already simmering heavy in SEC waters, with a major fear of them being locked out of the main title game. 

And it will be highly unfair for Ohio State to get jumped by Auburn or Missouri (because South Carolina won't jump anybody) after beating a tough Michigan State team with arguably the best defense in the nation. 

But first, let's emphasize how Alabama's lack of a special teams coach haunted them again. It was the right decision for Nick Saban to try and kick the field goal with freshman Adam Griffith spelling a nightmare day for Caleb Foster. But how he didn't factor in Chris Davis great return ability there turned out to bite him in the you know what. 

More about this game later in another thread to come, either on Saturday or Sunday. For now, breathe, stretch, and shake. 

Iron Bowl Halftime Thread: Alabama 21, Auburn 14

After Nick Marshall fooled CJ Mosley, Auburn couldn't sustain a consistent enough running game and tried to just play around Saban's defense, who started to adjust to the Malzahn's offense until the Auburn coach went back to the running on their final drive. Tre Mason really did run hard there and show why he will be a stud at the next level with his ability.

Back for the post-game, for sure.

First, Mr. Hall of Ohio State with the great middle finger technique:

It's been another wild season in the SEC, especially the SEC West.

Anyway, full runthrough of the biggest Iron Bowl ever, a game so big that even the Taiwanese animators decided to do a video on it. Yes, you read correctly.

TWD Friday Night Thread For 11/29/13

Just Montell, peace:

TWD Friday's The Flashback Fridays #3 For 11/29/13: 50 Cent- Wanksta (2002/2003)

The first official single of a notable career, before not caring to rhyme anymore.

More to come from TWD today, stay tuned. 

The Flashback Fridays #2 For 11/29/13: Mya- Fallen (2003)

For me, this competes with "Best of Me (Remix)" as Ms. Harrison's best song, and the music video is near "Love is Like Whoa" for just how much of a natural entertainer she is. It's an insane how she couldn't keep the consistency and be even bigger since she does her songs as a writer, while a Rihanna (who I love) still is a part-time writer at best. 

Still, she is big enough enough, and still is desired by many across the globe, guys and girls alike. And that will continue for a while. 

With the guy she happily stalks from "The Wire" looking like Black Thought in this video so much, it's Mya with her co-best song, "Fallen", from a decade ago at this time.  

She was definitely doing some stalking in this video, although some guys would not mind that. Or not. 

More from The Whole Delivery later today on this 2013 installment of "Black Friday", stay tuned. 

TWD Flashback Fridays #1 For 11/29/13: Cassidy Ft R. Kelly - Hotel (2003)

When it seemed like Cassidy would have a long successful career, now he is having to have Meek Mill answer him back to be relevant again. But a decade ago, he came with the flame with R. Kelly and Swiss here. It's his pseudo-classic "Hotel."

The Sports Thread #1 For 11/27/13: 2013-14 UEFA Champions League, Group Stage Matchday 10 (PostMatch Versions)

Photo from UEFA.com/Getty

Team of the Day

Player of the Day: Arturo Vidal & Ryan Giggs 

On a normal day, a player like Vidal would be the clear winner, with a hat trick performance that wasn't produced by Messi or Ronaldo. However, with how wonderful United's display was tonight, a 5-0 thrashing over Leverkusen, it was a historic result that featured at the heart of it, a soon to be 40-year-old legend in Giggs. 

The timeless Welchman's passing was excellent and his smooth movement was ever present. Giggs continues to show why, at such an elite level, why he continues to still be around this club and this sport.  

More to come from this thread at The Whole Delivery. 

Halftime Thread - Goal of the Day 

Goal Gareth Bale - Real Madrid 1-0 Galatasaray... by Sport-Today-2014

1) That beauty from Gareth Bale was the only thing positive for Madrid in a first half that has seen Sergio Ramos add to his red card stats. Dumb for Ramos to get a last defender's red on Bulut to reduce his team to 10 men, and the ramifications of his actions proved to hurt his team as Bulut score the equalizer after a great pass from Drogba. 

2) Gareth Bale could have had a hat trick this half. He missed the clear chance in the beginning he normally buries and then missed a chance towards the end of the half, shooting high. All in the balance in the second half at the Bernabeu. 

3) A near perfect first half for United, who survived Rio Ferdinand getting burned by Stefan Kiessling and saw the brilliance of Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs shine for them. But Sami Hyypia pays the price for starting Emre Can at left back. 

4) PSG have controlled the first half against Olympiacos with 71% possession, but only are up 1-0.

5) City have not looking good today against an inspired Plzen side who have showed today that they won't be embarrassed again.

6) Juventus have gotten the penalty and goal they required, but they aren't out of the woods yet against Copenhagen.

7) Claudio Bravo has had an excellent last few months for both club and country, but he showed woeful goalkeeping in allowing Luiz Adriano to score a vital goal for Donetsk against Sociedad, as again, Carlos Vela has been silent in Champions League group play. Still, a second half to change things. 

8) Nemanja Matic header has even the score for Benfica, but they have to win this game just as much as Anderlecht does. 

Will be back for Postgame thread stuff. 

Pre-Game Version After Bayern Munich's 3-1 win over CSKA Moscow

1) Key for Leverkusen today not to lose at home against a United side with injuries too.

2) Juventus really need to win at home against Copenhagen.

3) A chance for Jese Rodriguez to really make a name for himself today for Madrid in an important match for Galatasaray, as no Ronaldo for Los Blancos.

4) The loser of Donetsk and Sociedad will certainly be out of Europe altogether in my book. A must not lose game for either side.

5) Benfica have to win at home today against Anderlecht to put pressure on Oympiacos going into the final matchday.

6) How many goals will City score tonight. They need to try and close the gap on Bayern with hopes of topping the group when they play at the Alianz in 13 days.

Will be back for the Halftime show thread, and of course the post game recap.  

The 2nd Thread/The Music Thread #1 For 11/27/13: The Kanye New York Interviews #1 (Power 105 Version)

Screenshot from Power 105

Since the Angie Martinez interview wasn't as hostile as the Power 105-Charlamagne and, shockingly, the Sway interview, just going to give a few thoughts on those main two interviews that have gotten a lot of talk. (I heard the Julian Epstein interview was intriguing, but did not get hostile).

Power 105-Charlamagne 

1) First, on the Clear Channel interview. What was interesting from Kanye there was really breaking down why he chose to go with Jay and not Dame in the whole Roc-a-Fella civil war. It was the likability factor of Jay and not so much of Dame that was the determining decision. It's the karma that Dame was destined to receive for being a world class A-hole to so many people throughout the late 90's and early 2000's.

2) He had to continue that all Jews are rich stereotype.

3) Kanye really made a point on how the real 1% control industries and how it's more than about starting his own business.

4) "I don't have a problem with looking stupid. I don't have a problem with making mistakes in front of people."

5) "And I'm learning.." That was encouraging to hear.

6) The Narcissism is still high in him despite the deep thoughts.

7) Have to give Charlamagne credit, he did not kiss Kanye's behind as I thought he would with Kanye in front of him.

Three additional points

8) Eve made Adam eat a fruit, but it never indicated it was an apple, so Kanye is not fully correct on that. And I don't believe it was an apple, personally speaking.

9) All in all, with how hostile and bad it could have gotten, this interview ended very cordially.

10) The face on the guy behind DJ Envy after Kanye's last comment at the 10:51 mark in the Part 3 version of the interview on Youtube.

A later thread on how emotional that Sway interview got at The Whole Delivery later on.

The Sleep Time and Rise-n-Shine Thread For 11/26-27/13: Just Tevin (Sleep Version)

The Sports Thread #1 For 11/26/13: 2013-14 UEFA Champions League Matchday 9 (Final Version)

Fulltime Version 

Photo from UEFA.com

What a night, with a vintage throwback to old days win for Ajax over a Barcelona side who definitely missed Lionel Messi tonight.

Chelsea, for their awful performance and managing by Jose Mourinho, have been awarded a trip to the Champions League Round of 16, as Mohamed Salah shows again why Spurs should have had him this summer instead of go after Nacer Chadli.

"A bad performance, a deserved defeat," Mourinho said. "Only positive is that we qualified. From first minute I did not like the performance."

"The team was not fresh. Maybe I should have made some more changes."

Good to hear Mourinho at least point the finger at himself for once. Mourinho decided to play Lampard for a second straight match at his age, give Eto'o the start again, and leave Juan Mata on the bench once more.

The loss is all on him, and only him. Luckily, even on his worst day, he still somehow wins, as Chelsea seal their place to the knockout because of Schalke turning in a terrible performance on the road at Steaua. The Bundesliga side clearly missed Kevin Prince Boateng and Klans Jan Huntelaar on the day and now must win against Basel at home two weeks from time.

Team of the Day

And Player of The Day: Jack Wilshere

Yes it was against a Marseille side that has been badly overmatched in this devastating group that gets the mantle of Group of Death in this year's competition. But Wilshere showed tonight why he could be a world class player as many have pegged him to be for the last three years now.

With him adding a goal element while playing as the right slide attacking midfielder instead of the two holders behind in Arsene Wenger's 4-2-3-1, he showed the Emirates once again that he is definitely more than a talented, deep lying passer with the ability to tackle hard.

آرسنال 2 : 0 مارسيليا by kooralive

That has been your day today in the Champions League. I'll see you tomorrow with Matchday 10 coverage of the Champions League. Enjoy all the old stuff down below.

Halftime Version 

DHoe by fifa16

1) Danny Hoesen's tally has given Ajax a deserving two goal lead on Barcelona, as they have dominated La Liga's leaders in total fashion and are fully deserving. Blind, Schone, and Serero have just outplayed Xavi, Iniesta, and Fabregas badly in the midfield.

2) Disappointing from Schalke on the night, as Jens Keller will need to bring Draxler off the bench in order to get the win they have to garner against Steaua.

3) Even more disappointing than Schalke is Porto, who are trailing 1-0 at home versus an underrated Wien side. Still, the Liga Sagres giants are underperforming once again on a day they could have a firm hold over Zenit for that final spot in Group G behind Atletico.

4) Cesar Azpillcueta was made mincemeat by the rising star that is Mohamed Salah, but Basel did not score through the world classness of Petr Cech. Plus Chelsea look a threat, even with Eto'o having to get subbed off because of injury. Torres is back and should help, but Mourinho pays the price of not starting Mata again.

5) Pepe Reina is keeping Napoli in this game as Marco Reus has awakened finally, but the Serie A side are still a firm threat to get a result in this great, vital game....

6) ...Because Arsenal are definitely destined to the victory, although they should have had more than a 1-0 goal lead at the interval on Marseille.

7) Awful Celtic defending and the revival of Kaka has overshadowed another shaky performance by Milan. It just seems common nowadays.

Will be back for the post match thoughts when the final seven games of the night are over.  

First Version 

Notable Lineup Comments After The 1-1 Draw Between Zenit and Atletico 

1) No Boateng altogether & Draxler on the bench for Schalke, in a game they just have to win at Steaua as Basel will be desperate not to lose to Chelsea

2) Rare back to back games started for Frank Lampard against a Basel team that will be hungry against Die and F. Frei in the midfield.

3) Durm is in the lineup for Dortmund in this must win against Napoli for them at Sigma, with all their injuries including both Hummels and Subotic being out, while Napoli are only without Hamsik.

4) Huge match for Celtic and Milan today in Glasgow. The loser of this one realistically out of the Round of 16.

This will be updated at halftime, stay tuned. 

Midday Music Energy Boost For 11/26/13: Aloe Blacc- Love Is The Answer (2013)

First, before the Music Midday Energy Boost, here is a reminder that we are just two days away from the "Official Unofficial Payless Turkey Day Other Parade," where your suggestions on who should be in this parade that aren't in that other well known parade are still welcomed.

Remember, only forgotten cartoon, video game, or toy stars are allowed.

The Thread #1 For 11/26/13: That Question You Won't Hear Asked in America.......Heard

"Is it irrational for Iran to have a nuclear weapon?" 
A good friend of this mostly irrelevant site and colleague in Chris Hayes had on his show last night Rep. Eliot Engel with the good sir that is Hooman Majd, and asked that great question above to Engel's pro-AIPAC, pro-Zionist loving self.

It was a question that you will never hear anywhere else in American cable or broadcast news unless from a real journalist. You will see Hayes' pertinent question from the mouths of faux-centrist journalists who have hurt this country for so long with their shoddy work.

Also, Majd was terrific in not backing down to Engel's usual dismissive, disturbing, and disgraceful pro-Zionist bias. If I were hosting the show, I would have definitely joined in on slamming Engel for calling Rouhini a "hard-liner," when he is certainly not that.

The Music Thread #1 For 11/26/13: Hard To Parody The UnParodable

When I first heard wind of James Franco and Seth Rogen doing a parody of "Bound 2," I did have hopes of just a good laugh. I thought they would just play the music in the background and Franco or Rogen wouldn't lip-rap the song.

Unfortunately though, Franco had to lip-rap "nigga" right off the bat, as Kanye's first verse goes, and ruin the rest of an otherwise fun parody.

Otherwise, you have to laugh, though honestly, it's more from the absurdity and unintentional comedian that Kanye can be in his songs when he isn't screaming all over the place like a fool or still trying to sing. The man will always have funny lyrics and why it's the best song on that crap of a "Yeezus" album.

But Franco is too smart of a dude to know that he probably should have thought better to not even sing the first few lines of the song. It's just another moment of lack of common sense racially by someone of non-black prominence that could have been easily avoided.

Sidenote: The best of the videos is this mashup of the two videos side to side

Sidenote 2: Kanye thankfully won't lose his mind and curse them out, Fallon style. Here's the evidence.

The Sports Thread #2 For 11/25/13: Shanahans Basically Leave Griffin For Target Practice Again

Aldon Smith returned back to his best tonight, with Justin Smith combining to give them the most fearsome right side in the NFL once again. 

But the main topic again is the lack of protection and help for Robert Griffin on offense. That was an absolute disgrace in protecting the quarterback once more from Washington, and the Shanahans are closer to be fired. 

Karma for how classless an owner Dan Snyder is, where no sympathy is felt for him. 

The "Music End of Work" Closer for 11/25/13: R.Kelly- Sign of a Victory (2010)

Screenshot From Sign of a Victory

Unlike last night's moments and Saturday Night Live nine days ago in his Lady Gaga psuedo-sex phaze, Robert Kelly still has a list of inspiring songs. Still his most overlooked song in the last few years was this song that should have been the main World Cup song, or K'naan "Wavin' Flag."

I have discussed plenty of times how that should have been the case for those two songs, only to be denied by the weird, corporate choice of Shakira, an insult to the first World Cup held on African soil.

Anyway, here's the 2010 underrated gem that is "Sign of a Victory."

The Miscellaneous Sports Thread #1 For 11/25/13: Derrick Rose is Out For The Season (Final Versions)

Photo from Steve Dykes of USA Today

It's the fear that all Chicago Bulls fans have at the moment come to bare, as Derrick Rose is now officially out for the rest of the 2013-14 NBA season.

The meniscus tear Rose suffered in his right knee after coming back from his ACL tear in the left knee last season occurred on Friday in the Bulls' loss to the in-form Blazers. It is a devastating blow for him after all that transpired last season and how this happened on his supposedly good knee.

Outside of an 6-11 3-point shooting night in giving the Pacers their only loss of the season, Rose was still primarily the same player he was before the knee issues. Still, the Bulls have been bad offensively again, where Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, and Joakim Noah aren't consistent star men who can carry a team by themselves.

With how the Pacers have started along with a certain team in Miami, they were never going to beat both of those teams with him.

Other Notable News

Kobe Bryant has been signed to a two year extension with the Lakers, and he will be the highest player in the league before LeBron's new contract. It's a two-year, $48 million deal, but with enough space to allow the Lakers to sign Carmelo Anthony or another prominent player to go along with him and Gasol.

And in Kobe style, he tweeted it out:
LeBron James had some fun comments about the AMA's last night, especially this one on Miley:
With all of their injuries, Borussia Dortmund won't feel sorry for Napoli not having Marek Hamsik tomorrow.

Potentially more on this later, but Pep Guardiola is pissed about a mole inside the Bayern circles leaking information out despite the wonderful start to the Pep Era in Munich.

Theirry Henry will not have a third spell at Arsenal.

More on this later, but honestly, the Heisman may have to be given to a running back this season in Mr. Williams.

Brian Rios may have been handpicked for Manny Pacquiao, but the Philippine star is still a world class fighter. In fact, Floyd Mayweather is bothered by the fact that his eternal rival is relevant again, to the point that he had to tweet his team out as Pacquiao's name was dominating the Twitter Trending Topics after his resounding win.
And what a performance on the road last night by Real Salt Lake to quiet those great fans in Portland.

They will now have a chance to do that again, this time against Sporting Kansas City on December 7.

And that has been your sports thread for this time at The Whole Delivery.

TWD Sports Sunday Thread #2 For 11/24/13: Miscelleanous, Including Sebastian Vettel's Dominance (Final Version)

The best season ever in the sport's history, and his emotion is quite wonderful, even with his petulant, brat behavior sometimes.

Other Notable Events 

Big ups to Sporting Kansas City, who finally got over the hump against the Dynamo to go to MLS Cup.

We'll see if it will be Portland in their first MLS Cup or Real Salt Lake coming to Kansas City for the season's conclusion.

It appears that Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are back to being real good friends off the court again.
More on that from yours truly soon.

It won't matter that much if Maria Sharapova gets Sven Groeneveld as her coach. She is still not a Grand Slam winner anymore if she has to encounter a healthy Serena Williams and at least Vika Azarenka on a fast surface. And that's with other players improving.

FT: Manchester City 6-0 Tottenham 

It was that type of nightmare afternoon for Tottenham Hotspur. Still, Lloris' awful mistake has nothing on Boruc's all time gaffe from yesterday.

The Other Notable Events

The great Llorente and Tevez new partnership for Juventus is truly coming around these days, though Pogba is without a doubt the inspiration when Vidal isn't there.

JUVENTUS VS LIVORNO I 2-0 | Highlights I All... by GEntertianment

With Roma playing tomorrow, Juventus take the lead in Serie A for the first time this season. In fact, it was a weekend like the old 90's days of Serie A, with only one high scoring effort from 4-goal Torino on hapless Catania.

Despite the Premier League's tightness this season, no Big 6/7 UEFA league is as tight as they great Eredivisie, a league that has gone from a three team domination into a wonderful league filled with parody but enough quality, like the Brasileiro and unlike MLS. 

The tweets from good Dutch and Belgian soccer reporter 
A special league indeed. 

Seems the only thing that could stop Cristiano these days is an injury, as he maybe is out of the Galatasaray match with a precaution. 

Meanwhile, of course Lionel, clubs definitely wanted you. But he still is adamant on finishing his days with the Catalan

TWD Sports Saturday Thread #1 For 11/23/13: The UEFA BIG 6/Barclays Premier League All Day Thread (Final Version)

The Other Notable Events 

The revival of Kaka is one of the season's most wonderful stories so far. He is playing like he wants to play for his country in his country next summer. 

Carlos Vela, with a four goal performance in Sociedad's seven goal thrilling win over Celta Vigo 4-3. Mexico still just has all the makings. Now if only he wouldn't be such a clown to his country. 

For today, no Messi, no problem for Barcelona. A 4-0 thrashing over hapless Granada. 

Oh, just 33 goals in 23 games for both club and country now for Cristiano this season. It was the only goal for a Madrid team who were listless otherwise again in La Liga BBVA. They just got by Almeria on the road 1-0. 

And Didier Drogba takes a wide-eyed selfie on the bench today.

FT: Borussia Dortmund 0-3 Bayern Munich

The look of desperate says it all on Jurgen Klopp's face, as Bayern's greatness and all those injuries for the Black & Yellow lead to the Bundesliga title being decided already before the end of November

What made it even more devastating than any defeat to Bayern for Klopp's men and his fans is the fact that former hero turned villain Mario Gotze made the difference, as he broke the deadlock in the second half after coming on. 

 FT: Arsenal 2-0 Southampton - Bo-Nut

Take a look at what Artur Boruc thought was his Lionel Messi display, turned into a loser mess embarrassment. Could easily be the vital moment in this great Arsenal-Southampton game.

Arsenal vs Southampton 1:0 Giroud (lol Boruc) by footballdaily2

And it did turn out to be the case, as Arsenal went on to add another goal through a Giroud penalty to win 2-0 on the day and stay top of the Premier League for another week. Boruc's mistake.

The Thread For 11/22/13: Hackio's Feminist Nightmare Was Obama's Boss

Whether it's having their Beltway centrist hack reporters on Mo(u)rning Jo(k)e or flirting their pieces loaded with anonymous White House sources' quotes, the folks at Hackio (Politico) never cease to amaze me, nor should you.

If you somehow are in political circles from a liberal perspective and still somehow read Hackio, then I suggest that this finally be the reason you just ignore their hack stupidity altogether.

It is something that you frankly should have done a long time ago, but it is never too late. Because this will always happen with this vapid, vain website. It is just their core ethos and why they exist, to be centrist loving hack reporters who live to write ridiculous pieces to be published for link bait.

You could already see Matt Frudge Drudge linking on his long irrelevant website now, even though it would be ironic since he should like the fact that someone is portraying Michelle Obama as a "feminist nightmare" (I'm not going to link to that trash since I already harmed my computer by clicking on it from Twitter). Especially when that same writer in a certain Michelle Cotter, who isn't even acknowledged or known in the modern day online feminist community, praises Sarah Palin as a model for feminists three years ago.

By the way, a feminist nightmare I think is anti-choice extremists trying to vote for a ban on late term abortions after 20 weeks and spread more of their anti-contraceptive, anti-women, pro-extremist agenda throughout the nation instead of a health driven First Lady. But that's just me.

Hey, don't tell that to Michelle Cottle and Hackio though. Because for them, no one is more of an enemy to women that the lady who once was Barack Obama's boss.

Never change Hackio, never change. Because I will enjoy hearing those who still chose to read your pathetic, desperate attempts at attention yell and scream at your hack idiocy. 

TWD Friday Sports Thread #1 For 11/22/13 (Final Edition): Will Not Be in The Next Christie Ad

Yup, he took a big spill for sure in another memorable moment from the NBA on TNT crew. No word on whether he slipped because of appearing in that ad for Chris Christie.

Now for some Cristiano Ronaldo centric news. He can still be quite the angry A--hole, although the Swedes really made him angry with how sensitive he is.

Also, he definitely wants to stay at Real Madrid for the rest of his career.

Just a quick thought on the Prince Fielder-Ian Kinsler trade. With how bad Fielder was in the postseason and how he couldn't even hit 30 home runs in that tough ballpark, I just feel Kinsler is a better fit for being clutch for the Tigers. Plus they save a lot of money, although Prince could get back to having big numbers down in Arlington with the Rangers.

To the surprise of no one, Serena is the player of the year on the WTA.  

More on him tomorrow, but Baylor's Bryce Petty could snatch the Heisman away from Johnny Manziel (and, ugh, Jameis Winston) in these next two gigantically huge weeks.

Simply put, it shows again how you need to elect the right people with the correct ideology into The House of Lords (The Senate) in order to have the right, correct bills that work for the good of the nation as a collective whole.

When Harry Reid was finally fed up over the secret and not so secret blockings of judges continuing by the nutcase party, both him and Obama just had to just do what was required.

Senate Republicans were given a final warning in July, but they just wouldn't listen unsurprisingly.

And as Sir Moulitsas states as eloquently and directly as he usually does, Republicans knew full well that Reid & company had the full will to end the filibuster if the stupidity didn't stop.

So all of them bellyaching as usual and vowing that the Democrats will regret this move, as McConnell blazingly did the best today, is the usual expected nonsense and disbelief they feel over the Democratic Party's high ranking officials actually following through on their threat.

A lost for immature nutcases, a win for common sense, and an even bigger win for Sir Waldman as well.


Midday Music Energy Boost For 11/21/13: MikeWiLLMadeiT ft Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa & Juicy J- 23 (2013)

Never played this song until now, and have to say that at least Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J stuck to the topic of the song and salvaged it. 

I actually like Miley a lot as a person, But whoever wrote her verse (including hers) really did an awful job of not emphasizing at least Jordan and just the element of "greatness" that was suppose to be the theme of the song.  

Also, if you are not a fan of "bragging, glossy rap songs" like this one, you definitely should skip this one. But as mentioned above, Wiz and Juicy J do show some skill here.

The Sports Thread #1 For 11/21/13: Silence is Not Golden

Photo From USATSI

I have always felt that Jameis Winston's silence has been disturbing in this whole matter. With an allegation as acute as this one is from this young woman and now her family, an innocent person in my perspective would not hide from public like the prodigy redshirt freshman has done.

This has the makings of another big NCAA sports school cover up, where Florida State and the Tallahassee police have a close relationship with each other and made certain to prevent this from blowing up. The school's lack of true public statements on this matter is even more egregious in my mind.

If this woman is indeed a victim as it appears she maybe, I hope she gets the justice she deserves, as with all victims of sexual assault.

There are more details that need to be unveiled, but for the moment, Jameis Winston, Florida State University, and the Tallahassee police look like they are hiding something. And when you are hiding something, it is not a good look for anyone involved.  

Hopefully at the end of the day, there will be a conclusion to this instead of speculation as to what is coming next. Until then, all sentiments from anyone are irrelevant.  

The 1st Thread/Music Wakeup Call For 11/21/13: Lupe Fiasco feat Ed Sheeran - Old School Love (2013)

It was here before. And since it is so good, it is here once again. Lupe and a great, smooth 'John Mayer' type sound without a douchey behavior from Ed Sheeran. One "give me that old school love right now."

Midday Music Energy Boost For 11/20/13: Wait, He Debuted This on Ellen?

Yup, he did. Funny enough, that is Kanye's best song from that forgettable scream-fest of an album, which is the last song on the album.

Anyway, that will serve as one of two music energy boosts today, since people have likely already seen it all over the place. And really, most hate it as expected.

But it does fit the song though, and how he feels about her and all.

So for a different take and video, here's Janelle Monae's "Dance Apocalyptic" from earlier this year.

The Sports Thread #1/The World Cup Playoffs Thread #1 For 11/19/13: The Final Day (Second Version)

Photo from Jonathan Nackstrand/AFP Photo

The King of 2013 continues to show anyone who makes him mad what can happen when you do, especially those Swedish papers showing him crying. 

A remarkable day for this man, where I am glad that this question I asked last week is now irrelevant

Heartbreak for the small nations so close to making history. Both Iceland and Burkina Faso tried their all, with the latter very unlucky to not have Algeria go to 10 men after captain Madjid Bougherra's ridiculous challenge in the first half that should have seen red. It made it even more cruel for the Faso to see that same man score the tie-wnning goal and lost on aggregate despite scoring the same number of goals. 

Iceland could do nothing with a man advantage, as their fine attacking options were listless on the awful pitch in Zagreb. Mario Mandzukic displayed how vital he is for his country and set them through in a solid 2-0 win. 

The big boys of France, Portugal, and Mexico survived utter embarrassing both financially and of course spiritually. 

More to come for sure the next day at The Whole Delivery.

The Rise "n" Shine Thread For 11/19/13: No, It Wasn't Pass Interference

Despite Patriots fans and Skip Bayless whining and yelling all over Twitter like King Tommy boy did above, that was not a penalty and was the right call.

Of course Luke Kuechly faceguarded and made contact with Rob Gronkowski. But in the end, let's explain how Gronkowski goes too far in the end zone, and how Brady throws it too short.

As you can see when the throw is made, Gronkowski fails to turn around instantly, goes two steps too far into the endzone and does not cut in front of Kuechly and safety Robert Lester, who made the interception to end the game.

Now the rule in regards to outright face guarding is required to be a penalty, but a pass also has to be catchable first and foremost.

It's a call that is left up to the referees, and head official Clete Blakeman did well for me to pick up the flag on back judge Greg Meyer's initial decision.

Besides the retired referees having their different opinions,  Cris Carter explained on Mike & Mike just now how the Patriots' star tight end failed to really make that call happen and ran too wide instead of flat.
"The type of route he was running, he was running a pump route against cover two man, so he was suppose to split those two safeties (Lester and Kuechly, who isn't a safety of course but not what Carter meant there. Now Brady, because he had heat, he didn't step into that football. So because Gronk wasn't a great actor and because Brady didn't step into it, it lets the referee be able to call this, and you have to be able to understand it. And as a wide receiver , if i can't get to the ball, there can't be pass interference."  
"It's tough for (some) people to swallow." 
In short, Gronkowski fails to go into Kuechly and Lester, and Brady threw the ball too short. Patriots' fans and those who have sympathy for them this morning and disagree with the call can vociferate all they want.

It was the right call, and the Patriots' luck did not save them again like it can occasionally.

Now from The Whole Delivery again, here is Tevin with "Tomorrow."

Music Midday Energy Boost For 11/18/13: Lady Gaga feat R.Kelly- "Do What U Want" (2013)

From Saturday Night Sigh's episode this week. Thank goodness he didn't golden shower her, although this "sex" scene performance is so Rated "PG" compared to dance half festivals. 

I wonder how Akon felt? Man, Akon, you need to comeback strong.

The Fun Thread For 11/18/13: The Ron Burgundy School of Journalism

Fun Thread time again, your vital fun in the middle or end of your day.

Ravel Morrison may or may not be the latest English overhyped soccer player, but he is such a talent as the above video shows.

Emerson College, home to a school named after Ron Burgundy.

Never change Taiwan animators, never charge.

The funniest screw up of many more serious ones about the 2022 World Cup in (likely) Qatar.

Cue your fitting Kanye West "girl who only wants you for money" song.

Speaking of him, good debate on who Kanye hates more now: Obama or SNL.

And sweet from Steve Harvey.

That is all for this edition of The Fun Thread. Stay tuned for more at The Whole Delivery later today.

TWD Sunday Soulful For 11/17/13: Jaheim- Backtight (2002)

Glad to have this series back, and one of the smoothest songs in the last 10-15 years in the genre, it's Jaheim's "Backtight."

"When I slide in the rain, all night."

TWD Sunday Sports Thread #2 For 11/17/13: NFL Week 11 Early Game Thread

Final Early Game Thread 

It was certainly a wild early window session as always, captured off by the wildest one, a 5-hour tornado storm delayed overtime thriller that the Bears edged the Ravens over 23-20. The win gives Chicago the 6-4 first place with the Lions, who saw Jim Schwartz making the bone headed decision to not take the field goal and a seven point lead, resulting in a turnover on 4th down and a huge Steelers win.

The Original Thread & Halftime Thread 

The best NFL song ever, that original NBC anthem. Magical. This will be updated when the Week 11 early games reach halftime.

Halftime Thread Thoughts

1) Stay safe out there in Chicago folks. Also, Ray Rice has awoken. 

2) Chad Henne needs to be the quarterback for the Jaguars. He just plays well for them when give a chance to start. 

3) Matt Ryan just doesn't have Julio Jones and a line. Just a forgettable season

4) The Jets and Geno Smith, just getting trashed on the road again, no surprise there. 

5) And speaking of getting thrashed, the Washington defense can't stop Nick Foles and company, even if LeSean McCoy is out with a hamstring. The Shanahans, by keeping Griffin in the pocket, are going to get him killed. 

6) Just a shootout between the Lions and Steelers. The Steelers are just woeful on defense this year, where not only do the old players have to be removed, but does old Dick Labeau have to as well. 

7) Another wild battle of Ohio between the Bengals and the Browns, with Andy Dalton in need of not throwing the terrible pick six. Even with Joe Haden playing well, AJ Green is still good enough to win that matchup, where Haden can't cover him 1 on 1. 

TWD Sunday Sports Thread #1 For 11/17/13 (First Version): NFL Week 11 Notable Thoughts

Screenshot Image from NFL.com

1) Criticism of Colin Kaepernick has gone beyond insane. People have to recognize and acknowledge the obvious fact that he had no one to throw to last week and how that has been a problem with injuries to Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham and Vernon Davis, with Anquan Boldin slowing down as well. I think with Manningham's second week back from absence and Davis being cleared to play that he will lead them to a huge win in New Orleans of all places, the site of where they lost to the Ravens in the Super Bowl in February.

2) Key day for Andy Dalton for sure. He has to be the "good Andy," not the bad one today for Cincy. For me, I say that he will be his good self and give the Bengals a vital bounce back win in the battle of Ohio.

3) For me today, this is already a "Do or Die" game for the Jets, even with the Colts doing them a favor in coming back to beating the Colts.

4) Robert Griffin sure would love to shut up Darrell Green today. Nick Foles and the Eagles would love to shut up their fans. Would not be surprised if this doesn't become a shootout since you can never be sure of anything with the NFL. I think D.C. gets the win.

5) The Ravens are getting a bit more healthy on offense, and that will help Joe Flacco to a huge road win. But I do think Josh McCown plays well again today for the Bears.

6) Percy Harvin with show why the Seahawks should go to the Super Bowl this year, although the loss of Sidney Rice is still devastating.

The Sports Thread #1 For 11/15/13 (First Version) : World Cup Playoffs & Road To The World Cup Friendlies

(Image from FIFA.com)

UEFA World Cup Playoffs 

For the playoffs, France are in supreme trouble and turmoil after building fine momentum the last time out for Ukraine, as Dnipro forward Roman Zozulya certainly added to his growing reputation by being the man to score the goal and set up the penalty for a long second half for Didier Deschamps. Zozulya was Koscielny, Abidal, and Lloris' nightmare throughout the two hours, and the Arsenal centerback's frustration erupted by getting a stupid red card in the dying minutes of the game. That may just cost France a trip to Brazil 2014. What a stunner in Kiev.

Cristiano Ronaldo again showed why he is Portugal's heart, soul, and head (literally again) for his country by being in the right place on Miguel Veloso's great cross to get by Martin Olsson and finish pass by Andreas Isaksson. Still, Sweden were a firm threat in the first half beyond Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and will feel confident to go back to Stockholm and get the result they need.

Konstantinos Mitroglou continued his terrific form thus far this season with Olympiacos for his country, where even with Bogdan Stancu somehow getting his header by a poor job from keeper Orestis Karnezis, Greece look firmly in control against Romania. But Bucharest is an incredibly tough place to play, and the Romanians will give it firmly their all.

Finally, Iceland need to consider themselves fortunate that they did not concede any goal to a veteran and experienced Croatian side after Olafur Skulason was sent off early in the second half. The pressure is firmly on Niko Kovac's side at home, especially considering Iceland's terrific attacking options.

(More to come folks in the second and final, in a bit).
