The Ref

Keep your “Pro vs. Con”. Colbert can have his “Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger”. We’re gonna reward points and penalties to people based on their genius decisions and boneheaded moves.

INCOMPLETE PASS: Kentucky Wildcats
UK tries to go long with Billy Donovan, but he’s staying put in Gainesville. An audible to Rick Barnes was also rejected. But it looks like the Sexy Rexy of college bball will just say fuck it, and throw downfield to Billy Clyde Gillispie. Bye, bye Aggies.

CLIPPING: Pittsburgh Pirates
For cutting my Astros’ season off at the knees, only 3 games in. Maybe the ‘Stros need to take a page from the Buccos’ playbook, and pick up some draft strategy tips
[Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke?]
TIMEOUT: Phillies Intro Music
It’s always fascinating to see what major leaguers pick as their batting intro music (“Dirty Laundry” for Pat Burrell is genius) and it gives you some insight into their pesonality, but the songs imagined by the We Should Be GM’s crew are brilliant.

PERSONAL FOUL: Don Imus
For calling the primarily African-American women’s basketball team from Rutgers “nappy-headed hos”. Bonus racist remark: referring to the Tennessee-Rutgers game as the “the jigaboos versus the wannabes”. Classy much?

TOUCHDOWN: Cole Hamels
He may have had a rocky time of it pitching this week, but the guys at Our Book Of Scrap seed him first in their Beer Pong Tournament projections. Chad Johnson gets the 8 seed, and contemplates changing his name to just plain “Ocho”.

About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

  1. Good freaking Lord? When did Imus say that? Have you seen the guns on Essence Carson? She should snap his douche-y ass in half!

  2. Nothing about Bob Huggins leaving for West Virginia? Or should I say West Virgina?

    BTW, I’m a Kansas fan and find the indignation (I have no clue if I spelled that word right) of KSU fans hilarious.

  3. I like foxnews.com’s headline about it: I-mus Not Be Thinking

    Ain’t that the truth. What a douchebag.

  4. & I wonder why Imus gets the rep as “Howard Stern… with a conscience”.

    He’s worse, though. Howard does his racialist comedy — how many variations on black are there, among recurring personalities? (Angry Black, King of All Blacks, Beetlejuice, to name three… I’m sure there are more) — but he tries to keep it above-board. Or, at least, uses current argot. Jiggaboo? Really?

    Imus is old. He just needs to go to his ranch, let his wife run the operation, & rest easy ’til he dies. (Though, given the 70s & 80s, he should be dead now.)
