|May-05-12|| ||King Death: <Jim Bartle> And Allen played on a team that didn't have much margin to begin with, the top players were mostly getting old and they had no real bench. Even with a shortened schedule they weren't in good shape because of things like playing 3 nights in a row.|
|May-05-12|| ||HeMateMe: Yeah, in the same vein I was pretty sure the somewhat old and creaky Dallas Mavs had no chance of repeating. Dirk, Jason Kidd--when you shove 35 year old guys into young guy minutes, you get injuries and lost games. |
It might be a breakout year for the Thunder, although Miami looks like they are really starting to put it together. Hard to see anyone from the west beating Miami in the finals.
|May-06-12|| ||HeMateMe: Not Swept! The Knicks win, 89-87!. Now, they just have to bring the same energy for 3 more games. where's 'Oak when you need him?|
|May-06-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Or Anthony Mason. He could shake things up at least.|
|May-06-12|| ||HeMateMe: You don't "want Mace-In-your-Face" as they used to say, back in the day.|
Spike Lee's fan costumes, at the Garden, are horrible. The dunking stool of the Salem witch trials should be brought back, so Spike could be given a ride.
|May-07-12|| ||talisman: winning MLB pitcher went 0 for 8 at the plate yesterday. hasn't happenned since 1905. who is he?|
|May-07-12|| ||WannaBe: Baron Davis.|
|May-07-12|| ||talisman: laughed out loud! davis is correct!!! and the Baron i am a fan of...ole new orleans player and our best...i guess we all know now it's chris davis of the O's...by the way the 1905 guy was Rube Waddell...would leave the mound...jump the fence...take off...anytime he heard the fire truck siren!|
|May-07-12|| ||WannaBe: Good thing it wasn't the ice cream truck.|
|May-07-12|| ||HeMateMe: Have the Cubbies been mathematically eliminated yet?|
|May-08-12|| ||WannaBe: Since Ground Hog Day.|
|May-08-12|| ||HeMateMe: Ok, only two players have a home run THREE TIMES in a World Series game 7. One name is easy; the other is less well known.|
|May-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: The less well-known one just died, I think.|
|May-08-12|| ||talisman: guessing now...Ruth, Mantle, Gehrig, Maris, or Berra....at least 3 of these are wrong :)|
|May-08-12|| ||HeMateMe: Of course, Yogi, and JB has the other one. [that was quick]|
|May-09-12|| ||HeMateMe: Ryan Leaf, Quarterback/criminal, takes a plea deal.
Just nine months, in a rehab facility. I guess this is his last chance; he'll get real jail time next go around.
As some of the Rogoff regulars would point out, if this was some african american guy from Detroit, a four-time loser, like Ryan is, he would be doing a nickel in the state pen, or something like that. Ryan is quite lucky.
|May-11-12|| ||HeMateMe: Lakers and Nuggets (Nuggets?) are tied now at 3-3. The Fakers might not even make it out of their first round series. End of a dynasty?|
What about albert Pujols? ten year $240M contract, and he's hitting .198! I could do that.
|May-12-12|| ||King Death: <HMM> A lot of white guys that aren't former "names" would be in the same boat for at least that nickel.|
|May-12-12|| ||King Death: Wilt vs. Elgin 1957, one for the ages:
|May-12-12|| ||Shams: Ryan Leaf still faces prison time in Texas. The plea deal he got was for the Montana charges only.|
|May-12-12|| ||Jim Bartle: That's a heck of a story on the playground Wilt-vs.-Baylor games. I wish it had a little more on the games themselves, and especially about Baylor's playing style. It was different from anybody playing today.|
|May-13-12|| ||King Death: Ivan Johnson has talent:
$25 grand for somebody that's a rookie out of D league is a lot of dough, you'd think he could control himself some.
|May-14-12|| ||WannaBe: On one side of the river stands 3 cannibals, on the other side of the river stands <technical draw>, <WannaBe>, and <NakoSonorense>.|
If the cannibals outnumbers the CG.com member(s), they will be attacked, and eaten. There is a canoe, but it can only hold 2 person, (minimum one person have to row).
How much money do I have in my wallet?
|May-14-12|| ||technical draw: <How much money do I have in my wallet?>|
You must have at least $20 to pay for use of my copyrighted name.
|May-17-12|| ||HeMateMe: SuperBowl Shuffle quarterback is being sued by the FDIC:|
I don't think I've ever heard of an athlete beind sued by the FDIC, those who guarantee bank deposits. Jimmy Mac, who once mooned a media helicopter on a golf course, is also part of the players suit against the NFL regarding concussions in pro football.
