Brady Simmonds. Get as chippy as you want. Keep giving the Blueshirts 6 power plays a game while, to their credit, they remain disciplined without getting bent over like the soft bitches Philly thought they’d be. Well, almost…
Despite the series being deadlocked, it’s obvious that the Rangers have been playing better hockey. For some reason, they let off the accelerator & allowed the Flyers a little false confidence. That’s fine. If Simmonds thinks putting on the foil is what his squad needs to do to take the series, so be it. For a team not celebrated for their offense, the Blueshirts are the 3rd-highest scoring road team in the Eastern bracket. No one in the East has given up less away from home – even the mighty Bruins. And I’ll give you all one guess who’s allowed the 2nd-most in their own building. So once NY builds a big enough lead and turns the Philly faithful back into the miserable turds they are, then maybe the teams can iron out their “chippiness”…
Love that old as dinosaur buffoon Jay Horwitz who does nothing but fuck around and SUCK at his job weighing in on this. He and Sandy Alderson dick around cracking jokes having a grand old time stirring up shit with the fans and the media all the time but now they’re on their cloud of judgment handing out life lessons to all the sinners. Ridiculous.
Whatever. This is so patently ridiculous that we’re even talking about this. But we all stand with you in solidarity, Matt. Let #Harveying begin:
(Bleacher Report) -”Pierce is no stranger to hitting big shots when games are on the line. Many New York Knicks fans have drifted off to sleep only to have their dreams turn into nightmares that are haunted by the smug smile that typically washes over Pierce after he hits a contest-altering shot.But while so many envy his late-game prowess to the point of hatred, there’s no denying how useful he can be. The Nets don’t win Game 1 without Pierce stepping up in the fourth quarter, and they won’t win their series against the Raptors unless he has similar feats left in him.”
The quote above is only a small chunk of the article that I linked too, but rather than have you go through the entire thing I took the liberty of selecting the only quotes that you need to know.
What about Amazon? Pretty sure I can buy anything on Amazon……..
Anyway, game one went about as well as Nets fans could have hoped for. I mentioned the keys to winning this series being Dwill playing like he did in Utah, and Pierce being able to put the nail in the coffin, exactly like he ended up doing. I’m sure it’s real easy for anyone who isn’t a Nets or Celtics fan to jump all over these quotes, but if we are really being honest with ourselves how could anyone say he is wrong? How can anyone deny that certain players are just born with an ability to perform their best in the biggest spots? Born with the ability to make a fellow NBA superstar look like a child, crying on the court as soon as the final buzzer sounds? The Truth is “The Truth,” has literally been haunting players’ dreams with game-winning, last-second shots for the last 10+ years now. From Kobe to Stat to DRose, etc…etc….the list goes on and on. If you don’t think he’s good for a few more daggers in this Toronto series AND a few in next round, you’re fooling yourself. Does everyone love Paul Pierce? Of course not. Would everyone love to have him on their team with the ball in his hands and the game on the line? 100% yes, and if they say they wouldn’t, they’re lying. Nets in 6.
This is what we live for boys, the Yankees and the Sox playing meaningful baseball. Now I know it is only April and there is a lot of season to go, but my general theme for this season has been “every game counts” and these games count just a bit more. If we can get 2 of 3 or even a sweep, we will be comfortably in first place and distance ourselves for the last place Red Sox. Now anything can happen between now and September, but while we are hot, we have to stay hot. So what are we looking at?
We are rolling out Tanaka, Pineda and CC in this series and that means it does not matter who the Sox are pitching. If we can’t win with these 3 at the front of our rotation, we have much bigger problems. This is going to be the front end of our rotation for the Playoffs so we need them to capitalize early and build that rhythm. Lester will be tough tonight and Lackey will be tough on Thursday, but the last time we faced Lackey he got lit up like a fucking christmas tree. So hopefully we have some momentum after the first 2 games.
The bullpen is still dog shit even with Robertson back to lock up the 9th inning, so we’re gonna need the starters to got deeper into these games than the 6th inning. Pitch counts haven’t been a problem for Tanaka and CC yet, but it is time to take the training wheels off Pineda and see what he can do on the open road.
We need to open the flood gates here and compete offensively for an entire game, everyday this week. The reason we need to do that? Because a Yankees vs. Red Sox game is never over until the last out is made. Normally 5 hours after the first out is made. Last week we blew a 4 run lead against the Rays and you cannot afford to have anything like that happen in Boston. The Sox can’t hit with runners in scoring position which should help out our pitchers, who tend to get into and work out of trouble in the early innings so far this year. With all of this, the biggest story could be Teixeira (I have to Google the spelling every single time) who has a lot to prove to the Yankee fans and his team, that he is still a legitimate threat.
So that’s what we have in front of us people, the Sox are coming off an emotional day and weekend with everything else going on in the city and it is time for the Yankees to strike and establish dominance in the AL East.
GRAMERCY — A private school for babies is opening this fall in Gramercy. Explore + Discover, an eight-classroom learning center for children from 3 months to 2 years old, will launch Sept. 8 with an outdoor play space, said Renee Bock, the chief academic officer at the school’s managing company, K3 Learning. “It’s a play-based program that emphasizes all that children can do,” Bock said. “From birth, children are incredibly confident and creative. It’s up to us as teachers to create an environment where they can thrive.” Tuition will be $2,791 per month for children who attend five days week, which covers teachers who all have a master’s degree in early childhood education. The teachers, many of whom will also have musical training, will provide basic care, such as feeding and diapering, along with challenging kids to explore the world. “There isn’t anything out there that focuses on babies,” said Michael Koffler, who owns K3Learning, which also manages Sunshine Developmental Schools, which serves children with disabilities in all five boroughs, among other for-profit specialty schools. “We’re specializing in the world of babies.” Classes will range in size from eight to 12 kids, depending on the age group, and there will be three teachers in each class. Families that don’t want to send their kids full-time can pay $1,990 per month for three days a week or $1,399 for two days, according to the school’s website. “We take the kids seriously — that’s what’s unique about us,” Bock said.
Daily Mail – The school day starts at 8am and finishes at 6pm with the schedule including ‘morning explorations’, ‘music sessions’, ‘story time’, ‘outdoor play’, ‘napping’ and the ‘development of self-feeding skills.
You know why there isn’t “any schools or teachers out there that focus on babies?” Because babies are fucking stupid. They’re dumb. They’re nothing but little blobs of fat that cant learn shit when they’re 2 years old. Put a baby in a room with Stephen Hawking and Warren Buffet and a bunch of other geniuses all day and you know what that baby will do when he comes out of there? He’ll shit in his pants and stick a fucking crayon up his nose. Because he’s a goddam baby. You can pay some chick 10 bucks an hour to babysit your kid and read them a couple books and teach them the alphabet and then blow her boyfriend when they are napping and you’re not home yet and save yourself like, oh, I dunno, 30 grand a year. You don’t need some baby professor to teach a kid how to roll around in the grass or fall asleep at 2pm.
Bottom line is if you send your 2 year old to a school that costs as much as some private universities I guarantee that kid ends up worse off than a normal child who just had a baby sitter or stayed at home with grandma or mom or went to some normal day care. You turn your kid into some Ivy League cake eater when he’s still pissing in his Huggies and he’s got NO chance at ever being a likable kid when he grows up.
NEWSER) – The ability to make one’s voice sound hot is, apparently, limited to women. At least that’s what a new study finds: Researchers in Pennsylvania asked women to “speak as if they were trying to impress someone with whom they were romantically interested.” The subjects did it easily, almost all by speaking in low, hoarser tones. “There is a stereotype of what is a sexual voice in our culture—a low, breathy voice,” says researcher Susan Hughes of Albright College. For men, things didn’t work out quite so well. In fact, when they actively tried to sex up their voices, they became a little less appealing, Hughes notes. Men could, however, apparently make themselves sound more confident, which may make them more attractive. That sound of confidence, researchers suggest, is related to “earning potential.” In other words, as Rachel Sugar puts it atNerve.com, “Women are sexy if they sound attractive. Men are sexy if they sound rich.”
If you’re just an average white dude, these findings right here are 500% true. Sexy Voice is just impossible. Unless you’re that dude who fucks Diane Lane in Unfaithful or you have some sort of other exotic accent, chicks are not gonna find your voice hot. You ever try having phone sex when you’re just a plain old mediocre white fella? Its a nightmare. Thank God sexting came along and we can just do all that shit via text now because trying to get it done with your voice was a disaster. I mean there would be a chick on the other end of the phone going hammertime with a goddam mechanical vibrator and I still couldn’t get them off because my sexy talk was drying them up like sandpaper. Not to mention in the heat of the moment you get mixed up and say shit like “my pussy” or “your dick” and that just totally ruins the vibe. Bottom line is guys should just keep quiet during all that sexy time shit. No groaning, no moaning, no attempts to be sexy. Just standard dirty talk which prompts chicks to respond with their sexy voices. Like when the Casting Couch guy casually asks “Where’s my cock?” so that the chick has to answer that its in her butt in her best sultry, sexy tone.
I guess the key apparently is to perfect the “rich” voice these researchers are talkin about. Not sure how you go about “sounding” rich. All I know is no matter what it is, its gotta sound better than my sexy voice.
