"Boston Sucks" T-Shirt 

Banned from Yankee Stadium

Did you know that you can’t wear a Boston Sucks t-shirt at Yankee Stadium anymore?

The new rule took effect in 2002 – part of Major League Baseball’s new Family Decency Act. The act started in Seattle.

..this all happened the summer after 9-11, when everyone in every major American city started wearing I Love NY t-shirts... [more]

The Deer Hunter

There's a guy who works directly over the cubicle opposite mine who is a major hunter, and obviously this is his time of year. All I hear constantly is talk about guns and weather, camouflage, roughing it, affect of wet weather on wooden gun parts, proper sighting techniques - you get the picture. I am major pro-gun and pro-hunting, but this guy is one tiresome bastard. I guess, though, that I can be the same way, talking about Winkie all the time, or my bo-ring job. 

I think the dude has already bagged 2 deer and is trying to figure out ways to bag more. I hope he gets his limit and shuts up already. On Halloween, this guy came in looking like a fucking tree; he had tree camo on. Quite silly but I'm not criticizing.

Lou's List:

Greatest Centers of All-Time

  1. Shaquille O'Neill -- greatest center of all-time, by far. No one's close.

  2. Akeem Olajuwon -- untouchable in his prime; carried Houston to two championships single-handedly.

  1. Patrick Ewing -- about as good as Chamberlain, but with a better jump shot. If he played in the early sixties against a league of 6'8" slow white centers, he'd have scored 50 a game too. Was better than Olajuwon late in their careers; dominated Mourning and Mutombo even when they were in their prime. Only problems -- small hands, not a great passer (neither are most centers on this list), and Michael Jordan.

  2. Wilt Chamberlain -- better than Russell. If he played with 5 hall of famers on his team, he'd have won 8 championships too. If you rank them by how a player stood out against the competition they played against, then Chamberlain goes to #2 on this list; if you rank them by impact on the game, Chamberlain goes to #1.

NY Knick Fans and Patrick:
Losers Together, Losers Apart

Yeah you can believe that the jack off Garden Knick fans, who pay the equivalent of 4 tank-fulls of gas to watch 2 hours of meaningless NBA mid-season basketball, you can believe that these “sports fan” morons would stand and cheer the return of the biggest franchise disappointment .. [more]

 

Big, Non-NBA-Champion Doofus

No one can begrudge Patrick Ewing his desire to convince the Knicks to part with $30 million for the privilege of having Patrick lead them into the first and perhaps even second round of the NBA playoffs. What we can begrudge the big, non-NBA champion doofus is his continued insistence that he has any relevance at all to the Knicks chances of winning a title.. [more]
