The Beeze's Hump Day Hits

Well Winnipeg, I hope the Thrashers Ice Girls are part of the deal!

Yes, The Atlanta Thrashers sale has happened, and they will be moving to Winnipeg...Ahh, Hockey, back up North where it belongs...No offense to the South, but Hockey really isn't your thing...And this being the second team to leave Atlanta for Canada, well I think that point was made clear...

And no Atlanta, I don't want to hear you crying about this...You had superstar players like Heatley, Kovalchuk, and Hossa...And you didn't show up...You had a team that even when they put together quality seasons, you didn't show up...The franchise lost money every year, and that has more to do with you, then it does ownership, or the players...

Then of course NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who was all in with this deal...Odd, since he lead the charge to take Hockey to the Sunbelt...So Bettman was all in, but then issued a warning to Winnipeg, that they need to support this franchise, or the league will move them elsewhere...Really Gary!?! You're going to tell Canadians in Manitoba that they need to support a Hockey team!?! What a fucking asshole!

Don't worry dummy, they'll make Atlanta fans look like the joke that they are!

Now you are going to get a tiny bit of Basketball from me...I know, this is rare...I'm not a fan, and don't pay much attention to it...But I saw a lot of rumblings about the Lakers hiring former Cavaliers coach Mike Brown...Listen, the guy was only fired because that's what LeBron wanted, and the Cavs wanted to do anything to keep him...He was the third coach that was fired because James wasn't happy with him...And as far as being a good coach, he did a lot of winning with a shit team, that had one player, with a giant ego on it...He'll do just fine in LA...

Now to the hot topic in Ohio...Jim Tressel was forced out at Ohio State...The word came down on Memorial day...Not a classy move, but Tressel is full of non-classy moves...I'm sure his hope was on a day like Memorial Day, the story wouldn't get too big, and it would knock a day or two off the news cycle...Guess what, no such luck Jimmy boy...

I lost followers on Twitter because my views on Tressel, which I have shared plenty times before...Dude should have been fired a long time ago...When he left Youngstown State, they got drilled by the NCAA...He has had multiple players locked up...A couple killed...He has always bent the rules, and protected his players...This time he got caught, most likely because of his ego...How could it not be huge with the way people in Ohio love this jerk...

It was amazing to see all the people talking about how unfair it is, and how he should have stayed...How the NCAA should go easy on Ohio State now...NOPE! Ohio State should get the "Death Penalty"...Why? Because at one time, there were at least 28 players who were breaking NCAA rules...28 players in cars they shouldn't have been in...That's 28 players that he knew should have been ineligible, but played them anyways...Pryor had 4 different cars so far...Then the tattoos...Then the big one...When asked, he knowingly lied to the NCAA...

The compliance Department should get whacked...The AD should get whacked...The University needs to be held accountable, just as much as the coach and the players...There is no way they didn't know...The NCAA needs to nut up, and set an example...

But enough of that...Wednesday night...Stanley Cup Finals! It's gonna be a good one!

Now on this hot Hump Day...This is for all you Thrashers fans...All 250 of ya...Which of these lovely Thrashers Ice Girls would you most like to bang all the way to Winnipeg!

Monday Moaning

Today we celebrate Memorial Day...A day we honor men and women, who are much braver than I'll ever be...We honor them for their service to our country...It's because of them, that I can write a blog, that begins with a lovely lady teasing us with a bit of side-boob!

God Bless America!

So far my Memorial Day weekend hasn't been very exciting...Saturday I knocked out a double at The Fish House...Then I knocked back a few Sam Adams...Then I had to deal with a 5 month old who didn't want to sleep...Luckily, the wife let me get a few extra hours of sleep Sunday morning...

Thank God, because then I had to rush around to get yard work done, before it started to rain again...Yes, the weathermen in the Cleve promised perfect weather for the weekend...So just after the grass was cut, and the hedges and bushes were trimmed, the rain started again...

So, I'm expecting nothing but solid rain for Monday's big parade that the kids are in...Can't wait!

I have to say, I'm having trouble coming up with any sports shit to write about...Wednesday I gave ESPN a bit of a BEATING...Then, Friday I made my stand for all BLOGGERS...

Then of course there is the Stanley Cup Finals...The match up is set...Boston vs. Vancouver...I'm rooting for the Bruins, but this is gonna be a tough battle...Vancouver has plenty of firepower, and a strong blueline...Yes Luongo is a good goalie...But I'll always thing he's overrated, and I'm still waiting for him to choke...

The Bruins have to grind out every point they get...Tim Thomas has proven all year, that he can win games on his own, but he'll need help from his defensemen in this series...The Bruins are a better team when they are playing with a lead, so their offense has to get out to good starts...I expect to see 7 games in this series...Sadly, thanks to the NHL and NBC, we have to wait until Wednesday for the puck to drop...Too much time between games!

Now before I go...When you're at your local parade, or watching the ballgame, while the grill is fired up...Be sure to remember why we have the day off...And what was given up so that we can do what we do...

Happy Memorial Day...Here are some lucky folks who made it home...

Freedom of Speech: Not Just For Radio Douchebags

That's right, Freedom of Speech is actually something we all have...But often I hear gasbags on the radio, and on TV who feel that right is only for the people who have a degree in communications...Well fuck all that!

Here's where I'm coming from...Today, after work, on my way to pick the kids up from school, I had the Scott Van Pelt Show on the Radio...SVP, and his co-host who gets screwed on the name recognition, Ryen Rusillo, were talking about a Scottie Pippen interview from the Mike & Mike Show...They were going on about some who is better, LeBron or Jordan...Blah, blah, blah...I fucking hate Basketball, but we all know Jordan was the shit...

Anyway, the topic seemed to go off track when Van Pelt started talking about how Jordan didn't have to deal with the same scrutiny as James, because "The world today is so cynical, and angry." And of course, most of the blame for this anger and cynicism was put on Twitter and Bloggers...My God, these talking heads love to hate on bloggers...I think they actually see themselves becoming irrelevant because of all the quality bloggers, and vloggers out there...

But guess what, Anger and cynicism have always been in this world...It's just now people have an outlet for it...An outlet that is easy for you, or anyone to access...In the good old days, I guy would have a shit day at work, hear something on the radio on his way home, that pissed him off...He get home, bitch about to his wife, who wasn't listening, and then go kick the dog, and tell the kids to leave him alone...Now he can pull out iPhone, or laptop, and fire off a tweet, or write a blog, and boom...That shit's off his chest, and the dog doesn't have any broken ribs...

But for some reason twats like these guys don't think our opinions matter....(I actually like their show, usually)...I've also heard this crap from one of my favorite comedians...Jim Norton who is also 3rd mic on my favorite radio show, The Opie and Anthony Show, has bitched about bloggers before...I've heard him go off, just bashing bloggers, and how they suck, and no one cares, and how they're needy for attention...What, and his ego isn't needy for attention, standing on stage, or talking on the radio? I love Norton, but this is one thing that bothers me...

Technology, and the Internet has afforded the everyman the ability to get their thoughts and opinions off their chest, and out there...It doesn't matter if 2 people read it, or 2 million...It's out there, and it's off my chest...Freedom of Speech wasn't just given to Radio show host...Newspaper Reporters, TV talking heads...It's not just for those with a degree in communications, or for a guys that got lucky and fell into a great job...It's there for all of us...Even dopes like me with a degree in business, who sweats his balls off in a kitchen for a living...So you can trash bloggers, and I can trash you...Eat a dick...That's the beauty of it!

The Beeze's Hump Day Hits


Yes people, the Hump Day Hits are back, and back with a vengeance...

The first topic I'm hitting on is this Ray Lewis interview with Sal Palintonio (Don't care if I spelled it right) from ESPN...I love the fact that ESPN does this interview, then a number of their Radio talking heads take one small clip, and beat to death...(You know, like those guys Ray Lewis and his boys murdered)

They keep playing the clip where Lewis talks about how crime will be on the rise if there is no NFL season...When I first hear this snip it, I thought, "What a fucking asshole!" Which is what these dolts want us to think...They made it out like Lewis was saying, NFL players would be robbing, and killing people, because of the lockout...But what Lewis was talking about was all the people who "live through us"...Huh...Who the fuck lives through you...But Sal guided him into talking about the people who work at stadiums and shit like that...Ray, said "There's nothing else to do Sal!"

Hey Ray, the Fish House is looking for a dishwasher...Maybe a part-time cook...Also Ray, could you stop acting like the NFL is the savior of the world...It isn't, and you aren't John the Baptist either...Shut the fuck up...

That said, fuck ESPN's Radio douchebags for only playing that little bit...Play the rest, so people get the full context...You fuckers are from reporting sports news...You're fucking spin-doctors just like most of the media...Here's the interview, not just one soundbite...




Oh, but I'm not done with ESPN yet...Last night I went after "The World Wide Leader's" Linda Cohn, via Twitter...

You see last night's San Jose, Vancouver game had a kind of fluke, ending to it...In the second overtime, Canucks defenseman, Elder, went to dump the puck into the corner...He put it up on the glass, everyone was looking for it to go around the boards, but it hit one of the stanchions between the glass, and kiccked back out to the blue line...Everyone was looking for the puck as it ended up of Canucks defenseman, Kevin Bieska's stick...He shot immediately, and before anyone knew it, it was in the goal...Game over...

So afterwards Linda Cohn tweeted this..."Play to you hear the whistle. The #Sharks forgot. #Canucks did not. On to the Finals first time since '94. Luongo 56 saves. #welldone"

Okay, first I think it's play till you hear the whistle, not "Play to you hear the whistle."

I felt it was my duty to reply..."@lindcohn The Sharks didn't forget, they just didn't see the puck, you dummy...What the hell do any of you ESPN dolts know about Hockey."

"@lindacohn it was 54 saves you dummy!"

Seriously, the playoffs have been great, and ESPN gives them 2 minutes late in the show, and most of the time they sound stupid...And Cohn clearly looked at the stats and saw SA: 56...SA= Shots Against whore! SV= Saves...Which it was 54, you stupid gash!

Fuck I hate ESPN!


Now for the important part...The Hump Day Hotties, inspired by the best Hockey blog out there...HOCKEY_HOT_CHICKS and Somewhere in Between...

On this stormy Hump Day, which of these Lovely Ladies would you most like to ride the storm out with?


A. Paris Nicole



B. Sarah Jackson




C. Holly Peers



Oh, and if you enjoyed this ranting, you may enjoy the beating I gave BEYONCE last night...

Beyonce Is Full of Shit


Yeah, I said it...Sunday night Beyonce put on a huge production for her song, "Run the World (Girls)"...This is suppose to be another one of those female empowerment songs...Stop right there...I'm not a sexist...I'm all for equal rights...I'm Mr. fucking Mom, and my wife makes more than I do...You will never see me shitting on female empowerment/encouragement, unless it is justified...

Well this time it is...Beyonce, you and your girls ain't running shit! Not with this piece of shit song...



If all you have to offer is not really singing, and shaking your ass like a stripper, you aren't going to run the world...In case you missed what this dope was saying in the song, here are the lyrics, without her annoying, and meaningless shouts and chants...

"Boy don't even try to take us
Boy this beat is crazy
This is how they made me
Houston, Texas baby
This goes out to all my girls
That's in the club rockin' the latest
Who will buy it for themselves and get more money later

I think I need a barber
None of these bitches can fade me
I'm so good with this,
I remind you I'm so hood with this

Boy I'm just playing, come here baby
Hope you still like me, If you hate me
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, our love we can devour
You'll do anything for me"


NO...NO I WON'T DO ANYTHING FOR YOU!

That's not empowering or encouraging...It's just fucking stupid!
This song teaches young women/girls nothing, except maybe a couple new moves for the club...

Beyonce, you don't run shit...You're full of shit...And you wish you could have been Janet Jackson...Eat a dick!

Monday Moaning

Yeah she's hot...Except for the fact that Derek Jeter has been inside her...Why am I starting off this week's post like this? Fuck Derek Jeter, that's why! Early rumblings have Jeter as a lock to start in the "All-Star Game"...I fucking hate fan voting, because most fans are stupid...If Baseball fans don't vote Indians Shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera as the starter, then their right to vote should be taken away..."All-Stars" are suppose to rack up the numbers to earn the spot...Well here are the fucking numbers...

Asdrubal Cabrera: 182 AB...32 Runs...55 Hits...9 2B...2 3B...9 HR...32 RBI...6 SB...0 CS... .302 AVG... .363 OBP... .522 SLG... .885 OPS...

Derek Jeter: 183 AB...27 R...49 H...4 2B...1 3B...2 HR...15 RBI...3SB...2CS... .268 AVG... .318 OBP... .333 SLG... .653 OPS...

So again, I say, Fuck Derek Jeter...And Fuck anyone who votes for that bastard...I don't care what kinda tail he gets!

Speaking of Indians Baseball...Monday the Red Sox roll into town to take on the powerhouse Tribe...And I say powerhouse, for the first time in a long time, not sarcastically!

There's a rumor the Sox are bringing a secret weapon with them...Our old friend Mo...Luckily, I told Mo to meet me before the game, and we have a secret weapon of our own...Something that will stop Mo, dead in his tracks...


He sure does love his Bacon!

As for Hockey News, I was on top of that early last week...Did you hear, BETTMAN_SAVED_THE_NHL!?!

Yesterday, I also covered the possible sale/move of the Atlanta Thrashers, and the Preakness Stakes, as I was LOOKING_AT_THE_5_Hole...

I also got off sports, and wrote about the DEATH_OF_RADIO...

But now we have to get into some important shit...Saturday, the Little Beeze had his first Flag Football Clinic...3 hours they worked these kids...5-11 years old, doing drills, running, and yes, a bit of fun...My brother-in-law in Boston was shocked at the 3 hours...I had to explain, this is Ohio...This is Football...The regular season starts in September, these little fuckers need to get ready!

Then Sunday, the Mrs. and I got a sitter, went to lunch...We ate at The Olive Garden, loading up on fatty pasta, because Monday starts hard-core dieting...Then we saw the movie "Priest"...It was nice to finally see a priest portrayed in a positive light, like killing the shit out of vampires, instead of killing the shit out of my ass!

On our way home we went to pick up McDonald's for the kids...A little treat for them behaving...The drive-thru was way backed up...So I said, let's just go in...Well it was backed up there too...Now I have learned not to expect great service from McDonald's, but holy shit! Listen, if you want to see funny shit, go to the McDonald's, in Brooklyn, Ohio, on Ridge Rd....

There was one girl, on break, texting...Only one guy taking orders...One guy slapping the food together...One slob strolling around, doing nothing...One girl at the drive-thru window...One kid doing the circle dance...Just standing in one place, constantly looking at everything, being completely overwhelmed, and getting none of it done...Then there were the 4 people at the Fry station, all in a panic...One of them tells the only guy taking orders, that he "needs to put his orders together himself"...So he stopped taking orders, right before it got to us...Now suddenly, there are two more dummies at the Fry station...

Holy fuck! All this and none of the retarded staff was on duty...They probably would have been better with a couple of those guys there...They just push through and get shit done...Finally after 10 minutes a girl walks to a register, and takes our order...The chaos continued...Who knew that two "Happy Meals" could be so tough...The circle dance kid was still completely fucked...Texting girl was now trying to get her food comped...Still there are 6 people worrying about nothing but fries...Who is in charge was heard in the ever-growing crowd...Finally, we get our food, and only one other order has been taken behind us, with a growing line of angry people...As this dopey bitch hands me our food, I say to her, "Thank you for the most entertaining 20 minutes I've had in a long time." as I laughed in her face...

I plan on writing this event up as a short film, and pitch it to Kevin Smith...We'll submit it to all the film festivals...Win...Then some studio will want me to write a major motion picture, and I'll draw a fucking blank!

That's all for now...

Have a week...

Looking To Go Five Hole

Yeah, I said FIVE_HOLE

I'm gonna get into a some Hockey talk, but first I have to mention the Preakness Stakes...Once again I have been bested by one of my kids...The wife, my daughter, son, and I all picked our horses...My Wife had Flashpoint, who lead most of the race, so we figured he'd run out of gas...My daughter had Dance City, who was in the mix the whole way and finished 5th...I had Dialed In, who came from dead last and worked his way up to 4th...And that little shit you know as The Little Beeze had the big winner, Shackleford...Even worse, my wife said he had Animal Kingdom for the Derby...I gotta get this kid to the track!

Now onto some Hockey...How the fuck do the Boston Bruins take a 3-0 lead, and flush it down the shitter...Just two nights before Tim Thomas shutout the Lightning, and looked like the Tim Thomas that we had seen all season...Honestly, I was glad I didn't get to see the game...Watching teams blow a commanding lead really pisses me off...Now the series is tied up 2-2, and it's clearly anyone's to win...

Now let's head down South to the hot-bed of Hockey...Oh, wait, that's not the hot-bed...That would be up North...And up North is where it looks like the Atlanta Thrashers will be going...After much rumor, and speculation that the Thrashers are being sold and moved to Winnipeg, we still have much rumor and speculation...

Every party involved, and even not involved, are all leaking bits of information...The team is sold...The team is in the process of being sold...Negotiations are still going on...Season Tickets for Atlanta are being sold, the team isn't leaving...I have read more shit on this asshole organization in the last 24 hours, then...Fuck, I got nothing...I just know I have read too much, to walk away with so little information...

The NHL is denying the deal happening, but behind the scenes they are pushing hard for it...In their most successful season the Thrashers lost $20 million...Of Course the fans and city blame ownership!

If the deal does happen, and it will, this will be the second time Atlanta will lose a Hockey team to a Canadian city...The Flames left Atlanta for Calgary in 1980...Umm, by the way, I'm okay with that...The Jets should have never left Winnipeg for Phoenix...Yeah, Coyotes, you're next to move! Canadian cities have always supported their teams...Much more than many U.S. cities...(I'm Looking at you Atlanta)

Sure, Thrashers fans came out in full force Saturday to show their support for the team...All 250 of them!

How often do we see people show up only when they are faced with losing something...

From what I have read, Management is still planning on selling ticket packages, and there are actually some fans who are planning on buying...My God it must be nice to be such an optimist!

Speaking of being optimistic, As I figured, the world didn't end Saturday...The Earth is still spinning, I'm still writing, and the fuck-tards who predicted this bullshit, are looking for the next day on the calendar that they should try to stir this shit up...

I'll be back tomorrow to shit on more people I'm sure!

Ignorance Was Bliss (part 5: Radio is Dead)

Yes, I said it in the title...Radio is dead...Now be patient, it may take me a few minutes to get there...But what got me thinking more about this was that damn Justin Bieber movie...Yeah, I saw it...My wife took our daughter to see it in the theater, twice...She told me she was going to make me watch it when it came out on DVD...Last Friday it was released on DVD, and on her way home from work, Mrs. Beeze grabbed it...

After dinner, I did something I didn't want to...I watched it...Hey, it's what we as dads do...We do shit to make our kids happy...My daughter didn't get why I didn't like Bieber...She knows how much I love music, and talented artists, and she kept telling me how talented he is...The thing is, I didn't like him because of the God awful hype machine behind him...And the teen music scene isn't for me...But she was right...Kid has some serious talent...The kid you're born with...And that hype machine behind him, well that was needed...

You see, I never heard this kid on the radio...Neither did my wife...He made his bones grinding away at it, playing where ever he could, and then that stuff made it to the Internet...Video didn't kill the radio star...The Internet did...Actually Radio did itself in, and the Internet put the nail in the coffin...

Radio got scared by MTV, which no longer shows video...Just stupid ass Teen Mom and Jersey Shore, retard shows...Radio kept changing formats and getting stuck in ruts...Stations latched on to one demographic and went all out with it...As technology changed they started getting rid of personalities, and started doing it without DJ's...Let me show you...Here are the top (music playing) Radio stations in Cleveland...

92.3 plays 90's and early 2000's "Alternative Rock" with tiny bits of today and '80s Alternative, like the Police, and Clash...The also have no DJ's now, they run off of a computer...98.5 plays nothing but "Classic Rock" since I was born...They have beaten Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and ACDC to death, and I can't take it anymore...100.7 is a legendary station here...The play a mix of 98.5 and 92.3, and some of today's rock...Oh, but they also have 9 hours of talk Monday through Friday...104.1 is top 40 crap...Mainstream pop...105.7 is oldies...Fuck that! 106.5 has says they play some crazy, awesome mix of everything, but it's mostly '80s stuff...And no DJ's...

The Radio business has no power on the music business anymore...Radio is playing what they think people want...And what people end up doing is downloading what they want to there iPods...Billboard rankings aren't based on air-play, or album sales...It's based on the iTunes numbers...Artists don't push albums through radio play...They push downloads through their websites...They use Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and U-Stream to stay connected to fans and push them where they want them...Sooner or later, Radio will be gone...We'll download what ever we want right to our car stereos...

And when it comes to Radio, I have become loyal to Satellite...I got XM about 5-6 years ago...Why? So I wouldn't be force-fed the same crap...With Satellite, I have tons of options, to listen to whatever varieties of music or talk I want...And O & A are there, and those guys brighten my days...But talk will die off one day too...People will just be getting podcasts of there favorite shows...And I'm sure sports will find their way of the Radio as well...

I'll miss my old friend Radio...I sometimes miss my Ignorance to all this technology...But then I look at myself right now, typing this blog, checking Twitter for funny one-liners, checking out the happenings on Facebook, while the Todd Wright Show is streaming in the background, and after I hit publish, I'm going to check out some filthy porn...What a world we have at our fingertips!

Gary Bettman Has Saved the NHL


After much talk, and way too much bitching and whining from no good, former shitty backup goalie, cunt-rags like Glenn Healy...Gary Bettman put his foot down, and first kept Vancouver's Green Men from touching the glass of the visiting teams penalty box...Then they were banned...

God forbid fans have fun, and have a little interaction with the players...Hockey fans have always taunted, and razzed players...But twats like Healy bitched, and Bettman, listened...Once again, Bettman had pissed me off...

But wait...What is this? My God Gary Bettman, you are a genius! The Green Men have been replaced with a nice set of creamers!


You've won me over Bettman...I'm all in with you asshole! I'll take nice cans over Green dudes doing hand-stands any day!

Monday Moaning



Monday is her again, I hope everyone got plenty of moaning done during the weekend...This week I actually have a bit of sports to talk about, but look out, this topic tends to get political...

I'll start by saying this...Before you call Sean Avery a fag...



Dude was banging this...



And this, before Dion Phaneuf...



Yeah, she's the one he called his sloppy seconds...He also popped one of the Olsen twins, besides a bunch of other celebritard skanks...

Why am I bringing this up...Because Avery, known for being one of the NHL's most hated players, recently publicly support the "Equal Marriage Rights" campaign in New York state...Of course he was blasted by a bunch of haters on Twitter...Including agent Todd Reynolds, who went off, including saying, "Legal or not it will always be wrong."

Who knew that we would still be fighting over equal rights in 2011...To me that's what this is all about...Civil rights...This country fought over blacks having the right to be counted as people, not just three fifths of a man, as the constitution read...We fought for blacks to have the right to vote...We fought for women to have the right to vote...Yet we can't get past people being gay...Are you fucking kidding me!?!

This is a issue that conservatives love to throw out there...Saying how bad it is...It's wrong, and a sin...They want people to focus on stupid shit like this instead of the important shit...But the problem with these ass-hats is, there is this thing called separation of Church and State...I'm a big believer in this...Yet they always want to try and force their religious beliefs into the political arena...Listen, right and wrong isn't owned by God...I didn't need my 12 years of Catholic schooling to tell me it's wrong to kill some one, or that it's not cool to bang my buddy's wife...

The thing is, most of these dolts don't even know the whole book they put so much faith in...




So please take you religion out of the politics...

As for Avery, anyone who knows about him, shouldn't be surprised by him supporting gay rights...The guy spends half his time in the Hockey world, and the other half in the Fashion world...Of course he has gay friends, just like I do...I've been in the restaurant business since I was 13, I know plenty of gay people and guess what...It's not something they choose...They are born that way...Yes, there are some gals who may get drunk and give it whirl for an evening, but that's not choosing to be gay, that's choosing to be hot and give us guys something for the spank bank!

What is surprising, is the amount of support Avery has gotten...People who can't stand this guy, have done their own tweeting, and blogging, and had his back...Holy shit, there may still be hope for us in this world...Is this a sign that there could be some level of tolerance if a gay player came out in professional sports?

I'm not sure about that....And I doubt Sean Avery will see much of this support as next season begins...I'm sure he'll be getting blasted with non-stop 'fag' comments...

In some sad news, Rangers thumper Derek Boogard (28) was found dead this weekend...The reason is still unknown and we may not know for a couple weeks...Boogard was signed by the Rangers as a free agent this past season...I wasn't happy about the contract, because it was too much money for a guy who only fought well...But he won Rangers fans over quickly, choosing to wear #94 in honor of the Rangers 1994 Stanley Cup Champion team...He also dove right into a number of Rangers' charity events...

Boogard only played in 22 games this year and missed most of the season dealing with serious post concussion problems...His family will be donating his brain to Boston University's School of Medicine, which has been leading in the research of concussions sustained by athletes...


Now with that, I'll end with a song that seems fitting with our earlier topic...




Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.

Ignorance Was Bliss (part 4: The N-word)

Let me start by saying, the term, "The N-Word" is stupid...I will be using the words nigger, and nigga in this post...If you can't handle that, get out...People say using "the N-word" takes the power/sting out of the word...That's bullshit!

Now, today I chaperoned my son's class trip to the Cleveland Metro-parks Zoo...Monday the Zoo is free with your ID showing you live in the county...So we knew going in that it would be crowded...We got there right at opening so we had an early start before it got busy...After lunch the crowd picked up...Us chaperones had to be on our toes...

At one point a group black men pushed through our group of kids while chatting with each other...Every other word out of their mouths was nigger or nigga...Some say there is a difference...I say they're full of shit...So first off, fuck you for pushing through a group of 5 and 6 year olds, you fucking assholes...Second, fuck you for spitting out the word nigger, rapid fire, like a fucking machine gun...

At this moment I'm in a no win situation...If I stop them and ask them to watch it with that word around the kids, I'm willing to bet they get pissed at me, for being offended by them using a word that would offend them if I used it...

If one of these kids stops and asks me what is a nigger, I'm willing to bet these black men get pissed off about a kid under my supervision using that word...A word they just heard come out of his mouth...(our group was mixed with white, blacks, Hispanics and Arabs, but mostly white)

I'm also willing to bet, that no matter how I answer that question, this group of men will not be happy with what I say...(before you accuse me of being racist, fuck you...I've seen shit like this happen before...I have known, work, and like plenty of black people...And to be honest, I hate plenty of people from any and every race...I'm a dick like that...)

So I kept my eyes on the kids, and rounded them up...and we went on our way...And then to make things worse, one of the other chaperones leaned towards me and said, "fuckin' niggers"...And all I was thinking was, 'okay white trash.'

What am I getting at...I'm sick of the n-word debate...People say that the over-use of nigga/nigger in rap music, and Tarantino movies have taken the power out of the word...They're all fucking liars...Because if those black guys would have heard that white trash guy say "fuckin' niggers" they would have beaten the living shit out of him in front of a bunch of little kids...

Here, you want to take the sting and power out of the word, first lead...Lead by not saying it all the time...Stop using it the same way I use fuck...Second, ignore it when a backwards-ass dolt says it...I know these sound like shocking ideas...Shocking ideas that have been suggested by people wiser than I...But what the fuck did Martin Luther King know?

I know this may be an uncomfortable topic, so let's get a awkward laugh in here before I go...

Monday Moaning

Yes, yes they do...As I start writing this, it is still Mother's Day just for a little bit longer...So I will start by saying Happy Mother's Day to any of the moms and MILFS out there who read this crap...And don't let your kids grow up reading it...Just send them to Catholic school for 12 years and maybe they'll turn out as stable as I am!

Most importantly Happy Mother's Day to Mrs. Beeze who puts up with crap, and continues put out! Here she is getting our youngest started on the sauce early...

Now normally this week I would have a Kentucky Derby Recap, but sadly I didn't see it...I was rockin' a Fish House double Saturday...As a matter of fact, I have no idea what to write about...

Here let me throw in a couple links...My buddy Hotch is the main man when it comes to covering the world of Hockey at the Gab, but he doesn't get enough love on Sundays... HERE'S his post from Mother's Day...

I had some fun blasting Philly Friday night, after the Boston Bruins swept them...Good_Times!

Saturday Night there was a big Boxing match...People still watch that? I guess so, because I was having a blast watching Norm MacDonald's and Morgan Murphy's twitter fees with their fight updates...Mosely lost btw...

I should probably write about the shocking start to the Cleveland Indians season, but I can't...I'm still not sold, and why would I fuck with a hot streak!?! They're hitting okay...Not great but better situational hitting this year...The pitching has been outstanding, but I'm expecting teams to start figuring out this merry band of sinker-ball pitchers...

Something that has pissed me off in Cleveland is the city council passing yet another no smoking law...People are already not allowed to smoke indoors, including bars...But now they won't be allowed to smoke in most places outside...Now I don't smoke, and I can't stand it, but if these cunts really wanted to make a stand, they would just make the sale of cigarettes illegal...But of course they don't have the balls for that...Plus they have too many "sin-taxes" smokes that are paying for too many things these days...This new law also is going to try and ban Trans-fats...REALLY, in this town? Fuck anywhere...Yeah, they may not be healthy, but trans-fats make stuff taste great...

A friend of mine posted this video on Facebook and commented, "I think I can handle a bit of trans-fats whenever I choose."




If you have the time to burn watching this, it's pretty fucking scary...Maybe "Global Warming" or "Climate Change" has something to do with humans stupid-ass, posturing, fucking look at us blow off nukes for far too many years...

As for this fine Monday, I took the day off at the Fish House...Instead of work, I'll chaperoning the Little Beeze's class trip to the zoo...I hate fucking zoo's...But I did it for my daughter, and she felt the need to see that I do it for her little brother...Besides, I'd rather be there in case the boy tries to fuck with a Lion then have some one else have to deal with it!

Sorry if you were looking for quality sports coverage today, I'm just not in the loop right now...But before I go, let's get a special Mother's Day laugh from Bill Burr...




Have a week...

For Philly

Yes you bastards, this post is for the city of not so brotherly love...After watching the Boston Bruins sweep the Flyers, all I could do is smile, and think about how you and your revolving door of shitty goalies just suck ass...

Hey Boston's own Bill Burr, give it to these fuckers again!




"I said suck a dick!"




Way to go Bruins...Fuck the Flyers!

Something Not So Serious

NICE CREAMERS!

Yes, most of what I've been posting lately has had a more serious tone...So tonight I thought I'd lighten up a bit...So of course we start with a nice big set feed bags!

First, All day on Facebook and Twitter I've been seeing people post about "Star Wars Day" saying, "May the fourth be with you." I love Star Wars, but you people just look like silly geese...It seems every day is assigned some bullshit title anymore...So I'm proclaiming that tomorrow is National Lick My Yam Bag Day, so get those tongues in shape!

Now have you seen this video of University of Texas Baseball manager, losing his fucking mind...Augie Garrido is insane!




What a nut job...But he's no fucking Earl Weaver!




Now that's a manager!

Then I saw a story that got under my skin...Shocking, I know! The Department of Justice has sent a letter to the NCAA president Mark Emmert asking why they don't have a playoff system for major college football...It also asks if Emmert feels the BCS system is not in the best interest for college football fans...

REALLY!?! This is what the Department of Justice is working on...I understand we whacked Bin Laden, but there is still plenty of important shit for these guys to do...Why do politicians, elected and appointed feel the need to stick their noses into shit like sports, when there are so many more issues that should be on their plates?

See I was trying to be light-hearted, but then the politicians creep in...Fuck it...

Here's a tip for everyone...There's a show on HBO called Talking Funny...Louis CK, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Ricky Gervais all sitting around and talking shit about comedy...Check it out...Here's a taste...

Ignorance Was Bliss (part 3: Because We're Americans)


It's time for the next installment IWB...Paying attention to the world, news, and politics, and letting it eat at me, instead of the good old days when Ignorance Was Bliss...

This post was partially written last week, but Playoff Hockey, and kids, and beer, and life got in the way a bit...So After the events of this past weekend, I have had to change it a bit, and add to it...It was originally about our military action in Afghanistan, and an amazing movie...But before we get into that, I guess I should get into the killing of Osama Bin Laden...

Yes, I am thrilled that U.S. Special Forces went in and drained that fucking bastard...I'd also like to say hell ya to the troops who put a couple in the females that were there...Some men would hesitate, but not these guys, and I think that's great...Listen bitches, you lay down with murderous fucking assholes, you're gonna get filled with lead...

But now I have to take issue with the people who are pissed that we respected Islamic beliefs and saw to Bin Laden's body being treated within their customs...I saw and heard may comments asking why we should do this, or care...I'll tell you why...Because we're Americans...That's what we do...We always say we're better than other people, well then we better live up to that...This country was founded on respecting other's beliefs, and saying it isn't enough...We do it...We're Americans...

And his body was dumped in the sea so his asshole followers wouldn't have gathering place to prop up his mystique...So stop bitching about that too...It was a smart move...

Apparently we also take to the streets and celebrate, and not just for winning the National Championship...I have to say, and I know this isn't popular, but when did I ever care about that? I didn't like seeing people celebrating in the streets...Now in New York City, I could take that...A lot of people there have some pent up feeling over 9/11...We all have strong feelings about it, but seeing students at Ohio State, and Penn State, and other campuses celebrating just seemed odd...Yes, he was an evil, murderous fucking piece of shit, so the fact that we murdered him, I'm okay with...But again aren't we better then them?

On 9/11, when I saw people in the Middle East celebrating what had happened here, I wanted the whole damn place blown to hell...So I didn't like seeing Americans acting the same way...Yes, they had killed innocent people here, and we killed a guy who was as far from innocent as you can get...But we love our moral high horse, so shouldn't we stay on it? Shouldn't we win with class? We're better than them...We're Americans...And did we really win? Is this going to stop terrorist? No...This fight is far from over, and I won't call it a win, or justice, until all of Bin Laden's followers have bullets in their heads...

Which leads us to where this post originally started...Afghanistan...Many are asking does killing Bin Laden mean we're going to get our troops out of there ASAP...I wish it did, but I doubt it...I was all for going in and blowing that place to hell...Unfortunately we didn't send the full force of our military in there, and that's the only way to win there...Oh, and a willingness to kill innocent people...Because the Taliban is more than willing to put innocent people in the line of fire...

To understand this a bit better, I suggest you watch the documentary "Restrepo"...A U.S. platoon parked in the Korengal Valley to take on the Taliban that surrounds the valley...These guys averaged 4-5 fire fights a day, for 15 months...This movie should be required viewing for high school History classes...And actually, all government officials should be required to watch it...To actually get a sense of what our troops go through when they are sent to war...




In the course of the film you hear the soldiers talk about winning the people's "hearts and minds"...You later hear said sarcastically...There is no winning their "hearts and minds"...There is no winning there, unless we are willing obliterate the entire country...And we won't do that...We do anything we can to not kill innocent people, because we're Americans, and we're better than them...

Sadly, Tim Hetherington, one of the two men that made the documentary, was killed a couple weeks ago, while he was covering the combat in Libya...

Monday Moaning

So we're here again, staring down the barrel of another week...

Edit: The second after I finish writing this My old Grade School Friend who works for CBS News posted on Facebook and Twitter, that Osama Bin Laden is dead and the U.S. has his body...I have no other details but the rest of this post pales in comparison...


If you came to Monday Moaning looking for a draft recap, you came to the wrong place...The most you'll get from me on that is, Cam Newton will be another #1, Heisman winning, BUST...The Browns traded down to get more picks, and spent their first three picks on guys who have had some off the field troubles...So I'm not real thrilled with their moves...I watched day one, but I'm really sick of the hype over the draft, and it's really getting old to see these so-called experts like Mel Kiper, and Mike Mayock be consistently wrong...

Last week I wrote abut the big sports news in Cleveland, and how this towns PRIORITIES are really screwed up...I also gave Lady_Gaga a solid beating...

This week I'm starting with the self proclaimed, "World Wide Leader in Sports." Yes, ESPN...THE place to go for all your sports news...Except if you don't have a contract with them...Then they may not show shit on your sport...You see, last week the Vancouver Canucks and Chicago Blackhawks went into game 7 of their series...The Canucks had been up 3-0 and the Blackhawks game back and tied it up 3-3...Then game 7 came and it was an incredible game, that of course went to over time, thanks to an amazing, short-handed, late 3rd period goal by Jonathan Toews...




The Canucks went on to win in OT...It was everything that makes playoff hockey great, and ESPN didn't lead Sports Center...It was pushed down in the telecast, as Hockey always is...There was no bigger or more exciting sporting event going on last Tuesday night, yet ESPN found shit to talk about before this game...Fuck that place!

Now, here's an update on the Little Beeze's condition...If you don't recall, last week he was shitting blue...Well finally Friday we got the word...He said, "Mom, good news, my poop is no longer blue." Guess those food coloring tablets take almost a week to run their course...

So that was reason to celebrate, so Saturday night the Mrs. and I headed out for some drinks and burgers...When we got to the bar we were informed they close the kitchen at 8PM now...This is totally retarded...So we drank, and waited for our friends Bryan and May, knocked back a couple more and headed to another joint, where I knew the kitchen would be open...There was a band playing, and Bryan and I were cool with this place...But suddenly the skirts weren't liking this, and wanted to go some where a bit classier...

So we hit walked into this little Bistro down the street...Suddenly our cheap night out got expensive, after more drinks, apps, and entrees...Don't get me wrong...The food was great...I had Braised Short Rib with Grits...Yes grits...They aren't just for the south...And when done right, they are awesome...And these were...The wife had the Goat Cheese and Cracked Black Pepper Raviolis with Mushroom Ragu...May had the Rack of Lamb, and Bryan had the Beef Tenderloin...There were no complaints...The ladies were happy and so was I as I drove home with her head in my lap...

Sunday we took in a movie...It should be up for Movie of the Year, but it didn't get a wide release...True story, about a true Cleveland crime legend...




If you're looking for more sports you won't be getting it...

For the last couple of weeks I've been harping on the fact that so many Americans, and really people around the world, have been so obsessed with the Royal Wedding...Yes, it happened Friday...It's over...But that doesn't change my feeling on how stupid people are...Look at this map...




This map shows the territories that were or are under British rule at one time...The Royal family made it's fortune stealing from people...Rape, Pillage and Plunder was their business...Before the New York Yankees, they were the Evil Empire...The problems of places like India, Pakistan, Scotland, and Ireland, just to name a few can be laid directly at the feet of England, and it's beloved Royal Family...

They're all so proud that William married a "commoner"...Yeah, because so much of the Royal family's property was stolen from "commoners." William and Harry seem like decent guys, but they come from a long line of fucking assholes...

And England, aren't bothered by the fact that your country is having financial troubles just like the U.S. with a huge deficit, yet the Royal family throws around money they never earned, to put on this big display of look at us!

Seriously, these people are assholes...There's a reason why we had a thing called the Revolutionary War! Maybe I have it worded this well...Maybe some else can do better...




That's all for now...

Have a week...
