MLB, NBA & UFC Picks

The Yankees are soooo very bad. They should have beat the Red Sox tonight 8-2 easy. Cudos to the Red Sox for hanging in there. They got to Rivera and they deserved to win. That game showed me how much better of a manager Francona is than Torre. Night and day. Francona is ten times the manager Torre is. Not even close in comparison. My first plea to Cashman was to cut/trade Carla Pavano. My seconnd plea is to fire Torre immediately. Put Donnie Baseall in charge and hire Paulie O as bench coach. I think Torre was asleep until the 7th inning when he decided to start making moves. Why pull Pettitte with a 3 run lead? Why not leave Proctor in longer? Why bring in the guy (Vizcaino) who blew his laod and tank the day before, and then bring in Rivera for a two inning save?!? Especially given that you know they are going to have to use the pen a lot the next two games. With the go ahead run on 3rd in the 8th with one out, why not intentionally walk the batter to set-up the double play? And why, for goodness sake, do you bring the infield in?!?! he still hasn’t learned from 01. Sox will sweep.

Sorry for the rant. I hate losing picks. I went 2-2 (White Sox and Braves covered, Yanks and Jays did not). Brings my overall record to:

  • MLB: 16-14
  • NBA: 12-2-2
  • UFC: 2-1

Now, on to the NBA playoffs!!! One of my favorite things to do is pick NBA games. Especially this time of year. Genrally, I don’t like to make picks out of every game. I usually try to spot faulty lines and pick accordingly. But, with the limited docket of games, and because it is so much fun, I figure I’ll give it a shot. Here it goes:

  • Nets @ Raptors. This is probably my choice for the best 1st round series. I’m really psyched to watch this one. Both teams have been really great against the spread this year. Vinsanity has been taking SOOOOOOO much smack about this series. He even hoped that they got Toronto in the first round. Be careful what you get for though. Chris Bosh is a manchild. One of my favorite players and is HUGELY underrated. He came out of the same draft with mello, Bron and Wade, but never mentioned in their category. The time has come for the NBA to take notice. My heart is telling me to take the Raptors in this one. They are good favorites (-4.5) at home. However, they have been inconsistent as of late. The Nets have been ROLLIN’. I think the Raptors will win, but I think it will be a very close game. I just liek J Kidd and the veterans on the Nets. They will keep it close. I’m taking the Nets +4.5
  • Heat @ Bulls. This is another great match-up. These two teams hate each other. Both have stumbled as of late, with the Bulls losing their last game against the Nets. A game that if they won, they would not even be playing the heat in the 1st round. The Heat have been banged-up and have been sporadic, at best. But, they are the defending champs. Until they are kncoked out, they are still the champs. The Bulls are hungry though and are looking to avenge the beatdown they got last year. They are young, athletic and play hard. But again, the Heat are the champs. And they have Shaq in the middle and Flash in their back court. Very, very tough game to call. I think the game will be close, so I’m taking the underdog. I’m taking the Heat +4.
  • Magic @ Pistons. Magic just are not ready for the Pistons. Pistons are good and are built for the playoffs. Magic are 0-4 against them this year. Pistons are at home and will win this game big. I’m taking the Pistons -9.
  • Jazz @ Rockets. Nearly everyone is talking about this finally being TMac’s year to get out of the 1st round. Possible, but the Jazz are damn good. Plus they are healthy now. They just beat the Rockets by 10, but the Rockets did not play TMac or Yao. That would have made a HUGE diference. I think the Rockets will win this game, but the depth of the Jazz will help them out. They will keep them in this game. It will be a close one. I like this line. I’m taking the Jazz +6.

Those are the NBA games for tomorrow. I’ll give Sunday’s picks tomorrow.


  • Pirates @ Dodgers. Snell against Penny. Both have been great this year. I just love Ian Snell this year. Especially when he is the underdog. Will be a low scoring game. I like two picks in this game. I’m taking the Pirates +130. Also taking the under at 7.5.
  • Twins @ Royals. Boof Bonser is not good. Grienke is really good, and the underdog. I like him at home. I’m taking the Royals +105.


  • Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop. I have not changed my view on this all week. Cro Cop. Cro Cop. Cro Cop. Gonzaga will make this a good fight, but Cro Cop has too many weapons. I’m taking Cro Cop -500. 
  • Bisbing vs. Sinosic. Bisbing is fighting in front of his home crowd. This will not be a close fight. Bisbing will win easy and fast. I’m taking Bisbing -500.
  • Arlovski vs. Werdum. Arlovski is a nut and so much fun to watch. I think he wins this one. Will be a good fight, but Arlovski will pull it off. I’m taking Arlovski -115.

Those are my picks.

 Good luck.

Men of the World Unite!!! Do not be a Carl

Don’t be a CarlSo Mrs. Flash Flash and I went out for some beers to enjoy this beautiful East Coast weather. It finally cleared 50 degrees and smoked that temp coming in above 70 degrees today. Mrs. Flash Flash was talking to one of her girlfriends on the cell phone and I eavesdropped on the most idiotic pity party conversation I have ever heard. The two players were Carl, a 5’3″ tall man in his mid 20s and a woman in her mid 20s that I will call Clarice. I have never seen this people in my life and I only know his name was Carl because she said it. So take a look at the picture in this entry, Carl is on the left and Clarice is on the right. Here is how this goes and it is simply from observation and eavesdropping:

Carl and Clarice have been friends forever, since elementary school. Carl is 5’3″, has a high ass, slouches, his neck is like that Doolittle chick from American Idol and he is about to throw the biggest raging pity party I have ever witnessed in my life. Clarice looks decent, a long time smoker though, is wearing tight pants and a hippy shirt and has bad skin. So Carl laces into this tirade about how he is going to be single forever, oooooohhhh whoa is Carl, he can not meet any girls, all the girls he meets are 5’8″ and they won’t date him, he is ugly, he is too smart for the women he meets in bars, oooooohhhh whoa is Carl. Clarice repeatedly tells him he is an extraordinary guy and he has not met the right girl yet and he is soooooo great that he can not just meet any girl, the kind you meet in a bar, he has to meet that extraordinary girl cause he is so great and Clarice knows that girl is out there and that it will just take Carl that much longer cause he is sooooo wonderful and extraordinary himself.

Well this bullshit literally went on for an hour. Poor ugly short Carl just can not find a girlfriend and nice Clarice simply reiterated how wonderful Carl is and how that girl is out there somehwere. I just wanted to fucking shake him cause it was 100% obvious that ugly Carl wanted Clarice’s sympathy so he could date/bang her and instead of being a man and telling Clarice how he felt he made it one big pity party. Well guess what ugly Carl….that crap does not work on girls. You are not going to get a mercy screw from a long time friend just because you threw a raging pity party for yourself.

Well to add insult to injury, this chick Clarice pulls a whacked out mind game on him that literally went like this. She told Carl that most of the time when she gets hit on in bars she plays hard to get and guys and her friends end up thinking she is asexual cause she never acts on it. So then she literally starts telling this poor bastard Carl that she loves penis and thinks about penis all the time and she just wants to maintain her self-respect and dignity so she does not go for one night stands but she loves penis, penis, penis and more penis. She really wants penis all the time. I think she said the word penis 50 times in 5 minutes. Well poor ugly bastard Carl takes all this and you can see his neck shrink and he starts slouching more and more with every mention of the word penis. I do not know how he remained in his chair cause he looked like he was going to fall out of it.

Do you know what this was tonight….this was Mangina at its finest!!! I do not care if you are 4’4″, have a one inch dick, one arm, one leg, you name it. Grow a pair of balls and go after what you want. You like a chick, tell her. You want to bang her, tell her. Do not sit back and play the pity party sympathy card. You will never get laid that way and if you pull that crap you might as well chop off your nuts cause that is how you are acting. You are acting like a nutless pansy.

So men of the world unite against the Carls that are out there. Grow a big pair of nuts and use them.

Just had to rant about this bullshit I had to listen to tonight. Unbelieveable and if Flash Flash ever sees this crap again in public he will kick that Carl in the nuts!!!!
