There are 32 different sports in the London Olympics Games. Most of them are very exciting but some of them are pretty dumb. Considering the Olympics decided to eliminate both baseball and softball recently, it’s hard to believe some of the events that made the cut over them. I’ve compiled a list below of what I think are some nominees for the dumbest sport in the Olympic Games. Check out the nominees and then be sure to vote! (more…)
There are plenty of ways for a man to attract a woman. Being good-looking is the most obvious way to do it but being well-endowed certainly doesn’t hurt either. Some men are blessed with both and have no trouble bringing home women.
But what if you could only choose one? Would you prefer to be extremely handsome with a dick so small that you could never truly pleasure a woman OR would your rather be ugly with a dick so big you could make even the loosest women squeal with delight?
Like a lot of men, I enjoy a game of poker from time to time. Usually it’s a small home game among friends, but in the past I’ve also played online or in a casino (visit this site to play).
If there’s one thing that all men can agree on, it’s that poker can definitely be a frustrating game. Sometimes you’re dealt a great hand but you lose when no cards come out on the table. Other times you make a great hand only to lose when another player has an even better hand. Any game of poker is sure to be filled with bad beats and lucky draws.
What makes poker so challenging is the limited information we are given. So much of poker is a guessing game. Even if we make all the right moves, we can still get burned. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have more information? Unfortunately we cannot.
One hypothetical question that gets thrown around often during a friendly game is this:
Would you rather know what cards are going to come out or would you rather know what cards every other person is holding?
It certainly is nice to dream. Shit—I’d be happy to have the power to know either. But for argument’s sake, let’s see if one is really better than the other in another edition of The Great Debate. Frank Wheeler joins us after a long layoff. (more…)
The recent interleague baseball match-up between my hometown New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs gave me an excuse to make my first trip to Chicago this past weekend.
As I took in a pair of games at historic Wrigley Field, I started to learn why the Cubs haven’t won a series since 1908. Losing has become part of their appeal and their fans have embraced the concept of the “Loveable Losers.” I even saw some kid being interviewed on ESPN saying he’d rather be a Cubs fan than a Yankees fan because “it would be boring to always win.” I’ve been a Yankees fan my whole life. Trust me kid. There is nothing boring about winning.
Cubs fans and their relationship with Wrigley Field is like being in a bad relationship with a beautiful woman. They are blinded by its exterior beauty and can’t see the flaws on the inside.
On the exterior, everything about Wrigley Field looks amazing. The field has a quaint atmosphere of a minor-league park with its ivory-covered brick walls and auxiliary scoreboard. But what you’ll find in the interior are cramped seats, no video board and a trough in a disgusting men’s room where 50 men are pissing simultaneously. Oh yeah…and the team playing inside stinks.
But Cubs fans are blinded by Wrigley Field, just like a man would be blinded by dating a beautiful woman who brings nothing else to the table.
Every game is like a party for Cubs fans, where the outcome isn’t as important as having fun. Remember the crap your parents told you after losing a game in Little League, that it’s not important if you won or lost, as long as you had fun? It seems like Cubs fans live by that notion. The result is a side note to getting drunk and tossing beach balls around. I can see why Wrigley Field is called “The Friendly Confines”: Because the park is too small and their fans are wimps (except for the teenage girl that called my 63-year old father a “faggot Yankees fan”). Obnoxious Yankees fans were scattered all over that park, talking shit at every opportunity and most Cubs fans just sat there and took it. Even when the Cubs won on Friday, they failed to seize a rare opportunity to talk trash. Maybe that’s the difference between New Yorkers and Chicagoans. Perhaps they are just too polite to say anything.
As the team with 27 World Series Championships took two-out-of three from a team who hasn’t won a title in over 100 years, it became clear which city had the better baseball team. But when it comes to other important aspects, Chicago holds its own against New York City. Though I was only there a few days, I took in a good amount of the city and have drawn some key comparisons between Chicago and New York. (more…)
This past Monday, Michael Vick turned in an unbelievable performance for the Philadelphia Eagles, throwing for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns, while also rushing for 80 yards and 2 TD’s. The Redskins had no answer for him.
Vick played so well that it reminded me of his video game counterpart in the 2004 version of Madden. Anyone who grew up playing Madden knows the version I’m talking about. Vick fittingly graced the cover of that year’s edition and he was pretty much unstoppable.
This got me thinking: Who is the greatest football video game athlete of all-time?
When having this debate, there are really only two people who can be in the discussion: Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson and the Madden 2004 version of Michael Vick.
Tits and Ass. Two of men’s favorite things. They belong together like peanut butter and jelly. Some men are lucky enough to be with a woman who can turn heads in any direction. However, what if you could only have one? Would you rather be with a girl with a perfect rack and a flat, dumpy, cottage cheese ass, OR would you rather have a girl with a beautiful, round ass and the chest of 12-year old? Frank Wheeler and I debate the issue in the Great Debate. (more…)
Lester’s Legends, a fantasy sports blog, is running a survey to determine if people are more passionate about their favorite football team or their fantasy sports team.
Lester’s Legend’s says:
At one time or another, I bet everyone has wondered whether we should root for a fantasy player who is going up against our “real” NFL team. I think it all boils down to a simple question: does it feel better when my fantasy football team wins, or when my favorite NFL team wins?
This conundrum comes up on an almost weekly basis and its something many fantasy football fans wrestle with. There is no better example of this dilemma for me than this Thursday night’s game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Indianapolis Colts. (more…)
