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

Image
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 an…

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

Image
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.

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.

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.

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 knockou…

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

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

Image
"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

Image
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 easil…

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

Image
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)

Image
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)

Image
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.

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

Image
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 tr…

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

Image
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.

Thanks to all of you who encouraged me to consider filibuster reform. It had to be done.
— Senator Harry Reid (@SenatorReid) November 21, 2013 It's something that should have happened a long time ago, and that was even before the Republican Party became the deranged and nutcase element that it has been for years.

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 filibus…

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

Image
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…

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

Image
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.

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.

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

Image
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 toda…

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.
