The Real Winner Last Night Was Alex Rodriguez

back

(Just a little easy listening for this blog)

Today should be a happy day for Yankee fans because we just got back one of the best players in the history of the game.  Is Ar orth what we are going to pay him next year? Of course not, almost no superstar late in their career is worth what they are getting paid, but this is the Yankees so let’s stop worrying about money.

Last year we were not a very good team. The worst part was our in ability to drive in runs and that is what Arod does. Yes, he hasn’t done a ton over the last 3 years, but he also wasn’t healthy during that time, so now if he took the year to get healthy and is actually doing 2 a days like we have been hearing, why not be pumped? Right now ARod is a better player than both Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixiera (I have to look up this spelling every time) and can possibly play multiple positions, which is key for an aging team. On top of that, we have a superstar again. With Jeter gone, this team is a bunch of big names but even with his black eye of steroids, Alex Rodriguez is a bonafide baseball superstar. No press is bad press, Arod knows it and the Yankees know it too.

Say whatever you want about the long term affects of them, but baseball was more exciting with steroids. ARod didn’t do anything that other people weren’t doing but if he can play without having to take them (or with them and not get caught) I am glad to have him back on the Yankees because unlike some of the other guys on the team, he at least gives a fuck about playing baseball.

PS: We talk all the time about self awareness here, and nothing would show more self awareness than ARod coming up to bat to the Razor Ramon entrance on opening day.

KFC Editor’s Note: The $500 Million platoon at first base is gonna certainly be a spectacle. Also cant wait for the Yankees to overpay for Sandoval which is like 100% going to happen. Time is a flat circle in the Bronx as much as it is in Queens.

Eric Decker Asks People To Tweet Him Why They Are A Jets Fan, Gets Some Gem Responses

Another Ask Twitter PR idea, another batch of tweets highlighting how miserable it is to be a fan of these shitty NYC franchises. The people cracking jokes were pretty much your standard Twitter chirps about the Jets. We’re masochists, we like to drink, we’re losers, blah blah. But the herpes tweet really hit home. Thats really the best way you can describe why you’re a Jets fan. A lot of the other PC sports blogs have posted these tweets but they didnt post the herpes one and thats the most accurate. Its honestly like an incurable disease. “You just have that shit” is so spot on. Its not eloquent and doesnt really make sense but somehow it makes perfect sense. Its a lifelong virus that you can never get rid of, and you pass it down to your kin and they cant do anything about it either. I always say you don’t pick the Jets life, Jets life picks you and thats really the same thing as herpes. You don’t intentionally pick the girl with herpes but sometimes life comes at you fast and next thing you know, you just have that shit. Thats why I’m a #JetsDieHardFan, Eric. Do I win?

PS – Whats really sick is the number of positive tweets Decker received. Take a look through the hashtag and you’ll see countless losers like “Because its not about winning its about playing your hardest no matter what!” and awful shit like that. Have some pride people.

State By State Break Down Of Each State’s Most Popular Halloween Candy

Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.35.05 PM

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.35.58 PM

Market WatchForget those mini chocolate bars as the go-to Halloween treat. If you live in New York, you’ve got Blow Pops on the brain. In Arkansas, you’re talking Laffy Taffy. And in New Mexico, you’re foregoing candy altogether in favor of a shiny new lead pencil. Such are the results of a research project undertaken by SumoCoupon, a savings site, to determine the “most trending” Halloween candy in each state. By analyzing data from Google, the SumoCoupon team was able to see what Americans are discussing when it comes to sweets – all the way from West Virginia (candy corn) to Wisconsin (Reese’s Pieces) and Connecticut (Life Savers) to Colorado (Mamba fruit chews). Certainly, chocolate treats remain high on the list: Kit Kats, for example, are the trending favorite in four states (Nevada, Illinois, Mississippi and Wyoming). But other states seem to follow their own idiosyncratic, sugar-coated path. In California, wax lips, a retro favorite, are suddenly hot. And in New Jersey, Bubble Tape (think gum in the shape of, well, tape) is proving popular.

Alright lets go around the Barstool Network:

New York - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.36.49 PM - Not bad. Not great. But not bad. As far as Blow Pops go, they are the undisputed champ of lollipops. I would have preferred a strong chocolate bar. Twix, for example. But, if you’re gonna be a lollipop state, you gotta be Blow Pops.

Massachusetts - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.49.09 PM - Kramer will tell you they’re delicious and refreshing. Personally, I’m not a fan of chocolate and mint mixed together. I dont like JMs, dont like Peppermint Patties, dont like Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. In my opinion Junior Mints are another weird movie theater candy, akin to Sno Caps. But I wont go as far to say this is embarrassing for Mass because I do believe the general public perception – mostly because of Seinfeld – is overall positive.

Pennsylvania - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.41.14 PM - Poor, poor, poor, poor, POOR. Makes sense. PA is either white trash Philly or backwoods hillbillies. Good And Plenty is a perfect fit.

Illinois - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.42.05 PM - Great candy. Big Cat and the rest of Chicago Stoolies should be proud to be repped by Kit Kats.

Maryland - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.43.15 PM - Raisins. Fucking Raisins. I cannot even begin to describe how bad of a look this is for your boy Nate. Raisins are an absolutely atrocious food and obviously should not even be considered a candy. Baltimore – you should be ashamed.

Iowa – *double checks where Iowa is on the map for the 500th time* *shocked at how far north it is for the 500th time* - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.46.11 PM - Solid B. Rolos would not be a first choice of mine but if you put them in front of me, I’m certainly gonna enjoy them. Trent can take a break from his corn and enjoy some chocolate and caramel and hold his head up high.

Other states of note:

Connecticut -  Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.39.12 PM - Straight up Poor People shit coming out of The Nutmeg State. So Poor not only was it not included in my original blog, nobody even pointed it out to me to be included. Now, the Charms candy brand is responsible for Blow Pops. I can still hear “Say from Charms!” in my head from that commercial. But the actual Charms candy is pathetic.

Rhode Island - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.53.46 PM - Go home Rhode Island.

Maine - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.54.41 PM - Another great chocolate candy. The preeminent chocolate and peanut butter candy. Get out of my face, Butterfinger. No surprise the pot heads got this right.

New Jersey - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.52.21 PM - Weird to have gum be your official candy. Just seems bizarre to me. I do like the Bubble Tape though. The pageantry behind a 6 foot roll of bubble gum is fantastic. Comes in that dispenser case. Sometimes you try to fit the whole thing in your mouth. So while its weird, I give Bubble Tape my seal of approval

 

The Worst of the Worst:

California - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.57.05 PM - Plain and simple you’re not supposed to eat wax. Candles are made of wax. Your ear naturally produces wax. You dont willingly eat wax.

Washington State - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 1.58.14 PM - Pathetic. This is probably some Pacific Northwest hippie shit. I dont even understand it. This aint soccer practice, Washington. This is Halloween. Save your fruit for breakfast tomorrow and give me a Milky Way

And the most embarrassing state of the Union…..

New Mexic0 - Screen Shot 2014-10-30 at 2.00.05 PM - Hey New Mexico whats your favorite candy? Pencils! Christ on a fucking cracker, New Mexico. We want to know what your favorite chocolate bar is and your answer is an antiquated writing utensil. Can we just give New Mexico to Old Mexico? I cant even be in the same country as people whose favorite candy is pencils.

Power Ranking The NFL Quarterbacks As Old School Nintendo Characters Part 1: AFC

tecmo

With Brady vs. Manning Part 500 coming up on Sunday, I figured now was a great time to publish my NFL QB rankings.  I ranked each quarterback based on this season and I then compared each of them to an old-school Nintendo character.  If the millions of Brady and Manning highlights you see this week don’t make you nostalgic, reminiscing about some NES characters will.  Here is part 1 of the rankings, dealing with the AFC.  The NFC rankings will go up tomorrow.

1. Peyton Manning = Mario.  The face of the industry.  There have been many challengers to the throne, but there is only one true GOAT.

peyton

2. Andrew Luck = Bill From Contra.  Runs, shoots, and fucking dominates.  If you don’t love Contra or Andrew Luck, you are a Grade-A asshole. Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start for life. *Update: I fixed the code and will now commit seppuku for the lack of honor I have brought my family.

luck

3. Tom Brady = Link.  At one point, both were thought of as potentially the 1A to Mario/Peyton’s 1B.  But it’s hard to make that case anymore.  And while we are in New England, Belichick is definitely the old dude that gives Link his sword.  Brady and Link would have been done a long time ago if it wasn’t for that old man.

brady

sword guy

4. Phillip Rivers = Duck Hunt Dog.  These guys have been involved in a ton of shootouts and are easily the most hated people on this list.  Just seeing their faces makes my blood pressure skyrocket.  And you are a saint if you never tried to shoot the dog as he was laughing at you.

philrivers

5. Ben Roethlisberger = Donkey Kong.   A couple of pretty famous names that have been on top of their respective industries, but are never listed in the Top 3.  I also wouldn’t leave a girl alone with either of these big bastards.

DK

6. Joe Flacco = Donkey Kong Jr.  Flacco is Roethlisberger Lite, Big Ben Jr, or whatever else you’d like to call him.  And just like Donkey Kong Jr, Flacco isn’t really exciting at all.

dkjr

7. Alex Smith = Birdo.  Both have had a much longer shelf life than anyone could have imagined.  Smith is still leading his team to big Ws and Birdo has made her way into Mario Kart and other popular games of today.  But still, there is a definite ceiling for both of them.

smith

8. Ryan Tannehill = Thomas from Kung Fu.  Two people that are kind of overrated in my opinion, but each of them have chicks that are worth fighting a million guys over.

tannehill

 

Ryan-Tannehill-wife-2

9. Andy Dalton = The Boy from A Boy And His Blob.  Andy Dalton and The Boy don’t have to do much.  They just feed the people around them and watch everyone else go HAM while doing the dirty work.

dalton

10. Brian Hoyer/Johnny Manziel = Chip and Dale.  Hoyer (Chip) is the level-headed veteran that is trying to do it the old-fashioned way.  Manziel (Dale) is the party animal that everyone wants unleashed.  Chip gets you into the playoff race, Dale gets you into the Playboy Mansion.

browns

11. EJ Manuel/Kyle Orton = Normal And Fat Ice Hockey Players.  When you are picking your team in Ice Hockey, you initially want to go with the normal player (Manuel) because he seems like the most stable and rewarding option.  But once you realize the fat guy (Orton) is the baddest mofo on the team, you play even better and have a much better chance of winning games.

bills

12. Ryan Fitzpatrick = Sir Arthur from Ghosts and Goblins.  Fitzpatrick and Sir Arthur look similar and run around like a bunch of crazed assholes.  But having your team win a Super Bowl with Fitzpatrick as their quarterback is like beating Ghosts and Goblins (which is basically impossible).

fitz

13. Derek Carr = Duck Hunt Duck.  Raiders QBs are the Duck Hunt Ducks of the NFL.  They are sent out to certain doom, are promptly destroyed, and someone else fills their shoes immediately afterwards.

carr

14. Blake Bortles = Ryan from River City Ransom.  I admittedly don’t know much about Blake Bortles or River City Ransom.  But I have been told that they are/should be good.  And everyone in the world apparently wants to bang their girlfriends.  Was this entire comparison a stretch just to get a picture of Lindsey Duke in this blog?  Yup.

bortles

Lindsey_Duke_Blake_Bortles_Girlfriend_Photos_Video_Combine_Draft

15. Jake Locker = Dr. Mario.  The only person who spends more time in the operating room than Dr. Mario is Jake Locker.  Tons of hype around both of these guys with little results (AKA I haaaaaaate Dr. Mario).  I also had no interest in doing this exercise for Charlie Whitehurst or Zach Mettenberger.

locker

16. Geno Smith/Michael Vick = Bebop and Rocksteady.  A couple of silly SOBs that should be much more of a force than they really are.  Instead,  they epically fuck up and embarrass everyone around them.  While we are talking about the Jets, Idzik is clearly Krang and Rex is the giant robot that Krang controls/destroys.

         jets

krang

 

Who did I get wrong on this list?  Who should be on the NFC list?  Tweet #NESQB with your responses.

The New Lebron Nike Commercial With The Entire City Of Cleveland Hugging Each Other Is Pretty Ridiculous

Listen I of all people can appreciate how much sports influences people’s lives. I know just as much as the next diehard fan that it impacts our lives way more than it really should. I love the dramatics and emotion and know how one guy on one team can make or break an entire city. Night in and night out you basically put your heart in their hands and they dictate whether or not you’re gonna be happy. And I certainly understand the city of Cleveland needs it just about more than anybody else, and the story line with Lebron’s return is more than just basketball.

Butall that being said, this is some pretty dramatic, over the top shit. The black and white, the background music, the hugs, the chants. Usually Nike is right on the mark with these things and they find just the right amount of theatrics to get a few goosebumps and a chill up your spine. But this one was just too over the top for me. And I’m not a Lebron hater and I dont characterize Cleveland fans as pathetic for accepting him back into their arms. I just thought this commercial was weird as fuck.

Vote 1 for it was too much Vote 10 for its another great Nike ad
