Smell That Kentucky Blue Moss

As a diehard Cheesehead/Fudge Packer, one of my favorite days in recent memory was when Randy Moss was traded out of the NFC North to the Raiders.

Moss absolutely destroyed the Pack during his Viqueen tenure. I remember two distinct Tuesday mornings, waking up severely hung over and hoping that Moss pissing all over Lambeau Field on Monday night was just a bad nightmare. Reality sunk in and it sucked like the Packers pass coverage.

While the playoff TD celebratory fake moon shot did not cause me to blame all of society's ills on Moss's behavior like Joe Buck and was entertaining to the non Packer fan in me, I still hated number 84 in purple.

With Moss residing safely in the AFC and no longer having to endure him catching TD jump balls twice a year, I enjoyed watching him play this year for the Pats. I thought he had a lost a step from his Oakland days but he proved me wrong with his record shattering season.

Moss revived scoring prowess carried over the to dance floor as the above picture is Moss bumping and grinding with Miss Kentucky, Alysha Noel Harris at an after Derby party.

Doubts arose as to whether or not it was the real Miss Kentucky riding the big bad Moos Hog but photo hunter extraordinaire, Don Chavez confirmed the pairing with these new gems.

Be sure to have your popcorn ready for the next 2 pix.

I would pay a large amounts of cash to know the exact words to this conversation and find out the transcript of TO's text message. I'm weird like that.

Riding the Oh Face Train

I recently read that the average price of a gallon of gas in the US will rise to 5 dollars within a year and could get as high as 7 dollars in the next 2 years. If those high prices do not get you looking at different transportation options, this video sure will get you to consider mass transit.

Witness a Poor Sport

The Celtics/Cavs game 7 was finally an entertaining brand of ball worth watching and it almost made up for the previous six games of U.G.L.Y. basketball. The Celts made a few more plays at the end and pulled out the series clinching W.

Paul Pierce and Lebron James battled it out with legendary performances and the Celtics role players simply outplayed the Cavs. The Celtics seemed to get more breaks and out scrapped the Cavs for loose balls.

Even though I am bitter towards Lebron as a fan because he has thrashed the Wizards the past 3 years in the playoffs, he is still a helluva baller.

He has proven to make truly inferior teammates around him better, carry a team single handily to playoff series victories, and I have never seen a wing player more powerfully explosive from the free throw line to the rim in the game of basketball ever.

I do have justifiable criticisms of Lebron's game as I think he whines too much after every call or no call, gets away with way too many charges and travels, and his lack of a reliable post game is puzzling for a man his size.

I can add one more to the list by his disrespectful quick exit after the game yesterday.

I understand Lebron is emotionally upset after his team went backwards from last year's NBA final's runner up finish. I imagine it is frustrating for Lebron to put up with an inept GM and offensively challenged head coach.

However, it is customary in the NBA for players give congratulations and condolences to one another after a series concludes. Players always honor the opposing players/coaches in playoff series victory and defeat.

I disagree with those who condone Lebron's behavior and wish other Cavs would have acted like him.

Lebron walking off the court immediately without recognizing the achievement of his opponents tough hard series victory is clearly an act of poor sportsmanship.

I scoured through photos of this year's NBA playoffs, locating pictures of players giving love to one another after a series was decided. As you can see, no player, superstar or role player, was immune to wishing each other well.

Lebron is the face of the NBA for the next decade plus and I hope he regrets not publicly giving the Celtics their due props.

CNU Got Served Some Coldplay

Years ago, I stopped using the word "gay" to describe situations that were lame/strange/weird because it could be interpreted as an offensive slur towards the gay community and discreetly promoted homophobia.

The hilarious "you know how I know you're gay" skit from the movie "40 Year Old Virgin" saturated our lexicon with the word.

After watching this video of a D3 college baseball team singing in unison the words to Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline towards their opponent, the first thing that came to mind was the way Paul Rudd described liking Coldplay. The dugout performance starts at the 24 second mark of the video.

My favorite part was Lynchburg's Jeff Taylor, number 7, embarrassing Christopher Newport University's Matt Neal, number 25, in a dance off. Neal got served with ease by Taylor and Neal's final sliding double thrust comeback move was not even dancing.

Taylor's cranking out Soulja Boy at the end of the video was impressive too.
