Reaction to Peeping Tom sentencing

Michael David Barrett agreed to a 27-month sentence for interstate stalking ESPN personality Erin Andrews. Andrews will be spending her days Dancing with (D-List) Stars and being kept at arms-length distance from the feverish cult following she had built up online before the... unpleasantness. The crazy part of this final piece of this story is below.

The Mets aren't cursed, they're Fucked

If you are a Mets fan like me, you're baffled by the number of ridiculous things that have happened to the Mets over the years. Sadly though, we can't blame a curse on our failures (pity the Cubs) and rarely has someone even mentioned a curse in regards to the Mets. Why is that? Because our existence is comically and perpetually at a crossroads, either near the beginning of true success or coming down from a near-miss era. Come with me to examine why the Mets are the John Goodman of MLB.

5 Things you hate about me

Our weekly series of equal-opportunity hating balances out with things you hate about me. While you may not know me well enough to actually hate me, I'm providing you with enough material to slowly build a case against me being named Man of the Year (by the way, if you've seen that movie, I don't hate you, I pity you). These are my little idiosyncrasies that may drive people to actively plotting my demise, or at least hoping I get a really bad cold.

Sportscenter Rant

I don't want to get on a rant here:
But fuck Sportscenter.

5 Things I hate about you - first edition

Here we go as promised. 5 Things I hate about you will be a recurring post where I get to share my discontent with various segments of society and people that disturb me. Just so we're clear: I don't hate you specifically (although, if you weren't sure about that, NOW I hate you) but these are specific actions by or types of people that make me wish natural selection was a little more... selective. Not to worry; I'll be posting 5 Things you hate about me to balance things out. I'm an equal-opportunity hater. Let the verbal spewing begin!


Hello interweb enthusiasts -
Just a brief introduction about myself and what will be appearing on this site over the next few months. I'm a long time sports fan with middling writing skills and a dry, angry sense of humor. If you're wondering what that means, I'll be posting items like "5 things I hate about you" and "5 things you hate about me", and random middle-finger pointing at various sports teams and figures. This site will have sports criticism, but don't come here for daily news updates - I'll link to sites I check for that. I'll be posting opinions on sports, on life's little trials and tribulations, and about people that annoy me. When things really get going here, we'll do some mailbags, guest articles, and other stuff that'll add to the site. For right now, let's get our feet wet with things. Check back every few days to check on the new stuff that's goin' up.
Joe the Boss
