Tracy Morgan Cries On NPR’s Fresh Air w/ Terry Gross

This guy is all over the place. He disses his former casts members, he then relents, and now he goes on Fresh Air and lets his guard down some more.

Tracy Morgan is the man. There is something about his manner that he doesn’t seem dishonest or resentful. My feeling is that Cheri Oteri and Kattan did treat him like shit. But Here is The Campuswham Article on Tracy Morgan’s NPR Interview.

Roger Clemens: Steroids, Human Growth, & VIAGRA?!

Roger Clemens & Viagara

Those Rafael Palmeiro commercials got to me! I am only a man…

This is one of those stories that is followed by a nail crashing into the coffin. The New York Daily News ( Awesome upstanding newspaper ) has released a report about Clemens using Viagra pills on the field as a performance enhancer on the field.

Talk about throwing a hard one right down the plate! And don’t get mad at that remark; You’re going to hear a bunch of these puns all day hearing these stories ( some over or under my pg-13 level). It has been reported that uses for Viagra that isn’t used for “hitting one out of the park” is to increase endurance levels, and as a catalyst to deliver oxygen to muscles faster.

This is not necessarily new news on the endurance factor of Viagra in exercise. Stanford University and Palo Alto Health Center scholars had found improvements in cyclist in high altitudes upon the uses of Sildenafil ( Viagra ). The drug, which I have come to know so well through Brett Favre throwing a football through the hoop, or the guy who whets the sexual desire of local housewives and coworkers, opens up blood vessels of certain tissues, which allow blood ( and therefore oxygen ) to pass through a lot easier. Even the University of Virginia’s health website talks about the benefits ( dated: 2002).

The article in the New York Daily news also reports that more players in baseball have used this component along with steroids, and it has been confirmed by the words of Victor Conte.

I am not in the loop so a lot of this is new to me. I guess at the end of the day, Clemens was trying to get the high hard one going throughout the game! Yes, I meant fastball! Fastball… doesn’t correlate, but in order to climb out of the gutter, I’ll just end the article here.

The Daily News referenced article ( from the Sporting News )

Leave a comment of a pun that would be funny. “Rocket-Man has a whole new meaning” has already been used:)

Hilarious & Absolutely Amazing: The Manny Ramirez Catch… And Hi-Fiving The Fan During the Play!

I don’t know how to explain it, but it is something that you have to watch. I don’t want to go into detail about how this play went about, but this could be a Top 10 for 2008 ( including the Red Sox Manny being Manny bias). Check out the video here:

After a couple of weeks, the video is usually taken off, so if you are seeing this after June 1st, it may or may not work. MLB has gotten an iron grip on a lot of its media ( how many baseball clips can you find on Youtube?) and in a way it sucks if you want to look at old highlights. I think they are holding all of it within their system to sell through their new offline and online media collection. A little bullshit how zealous they have become with their content ( I was nearly kicked off of Youtube for showing a Sportscenter highlight); I hope they know they lose exposure if they keep everything in house ( who cares if someone is posting a Pokey Reese highlight on their blog? Probably better than trying to sell someone a Pokey Reese game for $20).
I am tired and ranting, plus I have an article that deals with this in the future. Good morning. ZZZZZZZZzzzz…

Sklar Brother’s Cheap Seats Funny Video: The Kelly Rapp Rap

The only reason this show never took off because A) It is on at fucking 2AM on ESPN 2 or at 1pm on the main station ( HELLO! I am at my job working hard on my blogs and Facebook here! Geeezus!). B) The only people who would even understand half of their jokes are all-around die-hard sports fans.

The Sklar Brothers had a Comedy Central Special and it was pretty funny. I think the fact that they have done an assortment of jokes and have included the most uber-specific sports references in their work ( “Like Zinedine Zidane, I’ll put my head on your chest”). If you know a lot of shit about sports, you gotta check out these guys. They are amazing comedians, and sucks that they get so little work they resort to those VH1 top-100 Whatever-the-Fuck-is-rotting-America’s Minds countdown. Here is a video they made as a tribute to a female 80’s bowler Kelly Rapp.

OH WAIT! There’s A Remix ( Even Funnier)
