Bengals Trade Chad Ochocinco and Let Jonathan Joseph Walk

In the past 24 hours the Bengals traded Chad Ochocinco for some cookies and milk. Then they turn around and let Jonathan Joseph walk. Then they cut Antwan Odom. I'd say things are looking up for the upcoming NFL season.

Since Joseph is gone who will be the starting CB along with Leon Hall? It won't be Morgan Trent, because he also has been cut. The good news there are still some DB's that have not signed a new contract. How about CB Nnamdi Asomugha, Antonio Cromartie, Chris Carr ? I know the Bengals can afford him because Mike Brown has not spend any money this off-season so far.

It looks like Mike Zimmer has the same feeling that many Bengal fans have right now.
"I'm upset, disappointed, frustrated," Zimmer said. "It's disappointing. You get good guys off the field, they work hard in the weight room and on the practice field and you kind of mold them what you want them to look like and they get out of here."

But the good news is the Bengals signed A.J. Green. And the Bengals also signed OLB Thomas Howard who made like 7 tackles last year which is only two less than Domata Peko.

Now the biggest question is, who will the Bengals sign in Free Agency? Mike Brown had a good opportunity to put some money down on Joseph but he refused. Now I get a feeling he will over pay for some average players. Because if I'm not mistaken Mike Brown is forced to spend money just like every other owner in NFL or he ends up violating the new CBA. As I type this he still has to spend about 45 million or he will violate the new CBA.

Bob Bradley Gets Fired And Juergen Klinsmann Gets Hired

It's a sad day or a great day for USA Soccer depending on your view. It has been no secret, everyone knew Sunil Gulati wanted to hire Klinsmann for a long long time. But it's one of those situations where US Soccer is the ugly kid in high school and Klinsmann is the beautiful foreign exchange student who everyone wants to bang.

In my opinion and in many peoples opinion one manager should not stick around past one World Cup cycle. That should have been the case with Bob Bradley. But Sunil Gulati being the genies he is, he just keep dragging Bradley along. And Bradley being the true patriot he is, he wasn't going to put his head down and walk out and let his boys down.

I have to give credit to Bradley for all the things he has done in the past five year. He guided the team to the  2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup title, 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup final, first place in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, first place in its World Cup group and a Round of 16 berth, and 2011 CoNCACAF Gold Cup final.
That's a pretty impressive resume. I think every US Soccer fan should thank him for all his services.

But here is the things, no matter who is leading the USMNT if the structure and talent level doesn't change the end result will not change. This would be a good time for the US Soccer to overhaul their system.

So Mike Brown Won't Trade Carson Plamer

“Carson signed a contract, he made a commitment,” Brown said. “He gave us his word and we relied on his word and his commitment. We expected him to perform here. If he is going to walk away from his commitment, we aren’t going to reward him for doing it.”

I'm glad Mike Brown is standing his ground instead of giving into what the super star wants. Carson signed a contract and he should stick with it. Before Carson signed this big contract he knew damn well that the Bengals weren't going change how they operate. So why bitch and complain now? I'm sorry Carson, you just have to suffer like the rest of us, you don't get a free pass.

But on the other hand here is what Mike Browns decision no to trade Carson Palmer does. The Bengals won't get anyone in a trade. The Bengals won't get any extra draft picks for the next few seasons. But to me the biggest problem with not trading Carson is the Bengals get scraps from the NFL free agent list. No big names or decent FA will sign with the Bengals, because they all know how much of a tight ass Mike Brown is.

Don't Act Like This If You Don't Get An Autograph

Here is my problem with this. If you are a grown ass man, you should be ashamed of yourself for chasing down someone for an autograph. Also, don't act like a little bitch if you don't get your autograph its just more of a reason you don't deserve it.
Anyway you think Pete Rose gives a shit about you? He's gotta get home to his Asian stripper girlfriend and his ridiculous outfits.

It Looks Like Cedric Benson Did Beat Some Ass

Well damn, it looks like Ced did put a hurting on that dude. Well Clavens Charles you should of left the house when Benson asked you nicely. 

Here is the best explanation on the situation I have found so far.

"Sounds like Clavens “Key West” Charles started extorting Ced earlier with a phoney gay encounter they had and Ced snapped, especially since he asked Clavens “San Francisco” Charles to leave and Ced didn’t cooperate with his advances. I mean look at Clavens “Fire Island” Charles….got fagot all over him …….and the going to TMZ. He’s such a girl. And the holding matching bottles of Chardonnay smiling like some love struck bitch…..makes you want to throw up. Where’s Earl Pitts?
And, whats up with a multi-millionaire living with a male roommate? Wow, get some nice split tails instead Ced."

Bangladeshi man has brick tied to penis as punishment

Bangladeshi police said on Thursday they were investigating the case of a man forced to parade naked through his village with a brick tied to his penis as punishment for kidnapping and marrying a minor. The punishment was meted out Saturday to the 30-year-old man by the local council in a village 30 kilometres (18 miles) south of Dhaka. Time Of India

Oh shit, that has to be one of the worst form of punishments for kidnapping a minor. But it's a walk in the park compared to getting stoned to death. So count your stars my man. This is what America needs to do, screw all the taking a seat in front of Chris Hansen and registering as a sex offender. When it comes to certain crimes America needs to borrow a page from third world countries.


Jack Vale Is A Moron

This is so funny, pretending to fart on old people. I just can't stop laughing. But I gotta admit, getting punched in the face by an old man is funnier. I mean who finds this shit funny anyway? Yea those fart toys were funny back in the 8th grade. But now, when you are 30 years old, you just looks like an asshole.

Canadian couple win £8k after Air Canada staff speak to them in English

A couple of French language 'extremists' have won an £8,000 payout after airline staff spoke to them in English.Michel and Lynda Thibodeau sued Air Canada for not respecting their right to be served in their mother tongue during a flight from the country's capital Ottawa. Despite speaking fluent English, Mr Thibodeau complained that he was not greeted in French when the pair checked in for their flight or at the airport's boarding gate. He also branded the airline's employees 'malicious, oppressive and reprehensible' for not answering his questions in French. The pair also complained that when they ordered a 7Up drink on the plane, the English-speaking air hostess brought them a Sprite instead. Dailymail

Fucking French. Is there any other group of people that whine and bitch more than these people? I doubt it, unless it's a bunch of Mexicans on a soccer field.
Guess what asshole, I don't see kids in India and China eager to learn French, they all want to learn English. There is a reason to that, French is becoming an irrelevant language. Maybe the American shouldn't of have saved France's ass in WWII when they were occupied by the Germans.


Police Shut Down Girls Lemonade Stand

Police in Georgia have shut down a lemonade stand run by three girls trying to save up for a trip to a water park, saying they didn't have a business license or the required permits. One girl, 14-year-old Casity Dixon, says the three had to listen to police and shut down. The girls are now doing chores and yard work to make money. WKRG

I know what some of you are thinking, how could cops do this to a bunch of girls selling lemonade. Well I don't feel sorry for them one bit. Guess what you are 14 years old, you lost that aww how cute factor about three years ago. This is America, you gotta pay to play.


The NFL Lockout Needs To End ASAP

I'm serious this shit needs to end ASAP otherwise the Bengals won't have enough players to fill out the roster when the season starts.
Three arrest in eight days has to be some kind of record right?
But seriously Ray Lewis was right when he said, crime will increase with no NFL. That man is a prophet.
I'm a fan of Cedric Benson, but keep your hands for yourself man. This arrest probably just cost him couple of millions.
These arrest are not just concentrated on the Bengals players, but through out the NFL. My boy at Sports Behemoth has a nice break down on all the players arrested since the lockout started.
But the one person I don't feel sorry for is that bitch Hines Ward. That asshole deserves it.


USA vs Japan Womens World Cup Final

USA falls to Japan in 2011 Women's World Cup final.

With defeat comes sadness and finger pointing. I know what the ladies have done in this tournament is a great accomplishment. But no matter what the game or level, whenever there is a failure, the praises fall short. Especially when the your team gave up the lead twice.

For me there is only one person that deserves the blame, and that would be coach Pia Sundhag. Not because she sat Amy Rodriguez or started  Megan Rapinoe but because she started Rachel Buehler. Pia should of have kept Becky Sauerbrunn in the starting lineup, she had a great game against France.
It was evident during the Sweden and Brazil game that Buehler would be trouble. It proved to be true again, she had a big part in both goals that Japan scored. I know I shouldn't be bitching about Pia or Buehler, but it was pretty clear that the back line would be the achilles heel of this team.But Pia went with loyalty rather than tactics.

I don't want to completely blame everything on Pia and Buehler. The team had so many opportunities to put the game away, but they failed to capitalize on their opportunities.

Overall, I am sad about the fact the ladies fell short of their dream. But I can't say Japan didn't deserve to win the game.

Asher Roth x Quan = Summertime

A little some some for your mind this summer. I like fresh groves like this, nice chill out music. This song got me wishing I was at the beach sippin on drink.

White People Needs To Stop This

For a second it was planking, now there is owling. Which looks even dumber than planking. All I have to say is this, you guys really need to stop with this nonsense. Plus owling is nothing new, it's been going on in other countries for decades.

Cincinnati Bearcats:Top Football Players To Watch In 2011

Thankfully the 2011 Bearcats football season is almost upon us.
Last season, the Bearcats missed a bowl game for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
So now its time to build the hype and get back to winning the Big East title again.

Here are some of the top players we should be keeping our eyes on for the 2011 season. 

Alex Hoffman, Offensive Tackle:
Alex along with Randy Martinez are only the two starters coming back to the Offensive line.
If the Bearcats are to have a strong season it will be up to Alex and rest of the O-Line to keep Zach Collaros safe in the pocket.

J.K. Schaffer, Linebacker:
Even though as a whole the Bearcats defense was bad last year, one player played above avergae.
Schaffer recorded 111 tackles. 9.5 for a loss, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception. With all the starters returning this year, he should have another monster season.

Anthony McClung, WR:
In his second season as a Bearcats, the pressure will be on the WR. As a freshman, McClung had 22 receptions for 217 yards and returned 11 kickoffs for 198 yards to record 421 all-purpose yards.Taking the spot left by departed Armon Binns will be a challenge. But looking at his freshman production, it is safe to assume he will have no problem stepping up to the challenge.

D.J. Woods, WR:
D.J. Woods has had a productive career at Cincinnati. Woods averaged 15.8 yards per catch last season, reeling in 57 receptions for 898 yards and eight touchdowns. Woods also rushed 11 times for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Returning 32 kicks, Woods garnered 728 yards. With the departure of Binns, it is time for Woods to step up to the #1 WR spot.

Isaiah Pead, RB:
Isaiah Pead is one of the best RB's in the nation and he is the X factor for this Bearcats team. Even thought the Bearcats are not known as a rushing team, Pead has been consistent through out his career in Cincinnati. In the past three seasons he has averaged over 6 yards per carry. He averaged 6.6 yards per carry last year, the best in the Big East. I'm sure more oppositions will be hearing the chant "you got Pead on".

Zach Collaros, QB:
Collaros had 2,902 passing yards with 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, earning 2010 All-Conference honors. But for Collaros and the rest of the Bearcats that only lead to 4 wins. This year, in his second season as a full time starter, more pressure will be on him to take the Bearcats back to the top of the Big East.

Cincinnati Reds: A Look Back At The All Star Break

The All Star break is upon us. And it couldn't have come at a better time for the Red.
As of the All Star break the Reds are 4 games out of first place, they are 1 game back of the third place Pirates. The reds are below .500 with a record of 45-47.

Lets go back to the beginning of the season. When on opening day, Ramon Hernandez hits a walk-off, 3-run home run against the Brewers. Then the Reds went on to sweep the Brewers in the opening series. I felt great about this team and this season. I figured the Reds would pick up where they left of last year. But only to be disappointed series after series.

After every lose it was easy to blame a specific player either it was Stubbs or Bruce or Francisco Cordero. I'm sure each player has their fault, but the truth is overall this team is lacking in a lot of areas. From a true leader in the club house to being consistent on the field.

So is there a solution to all the Reds problem? I don't fucking know, I don't get paid to do that.
But the rumors are the Reds and the Rockies are in talk of a trade for Ubaldo Jimenez.
The crazy thing is if the Reds make a bold trade it can easily take them to the top of the standing. Because the NL Central is such a weak division. But, they do need to make that move before it's too late.


BMW Alpina B6 Crashes At The GT Masters Series

Hey  it's a good thing those tire barriers are there. Oh, wait the car went air born over the barriers and smashed into what looks like a porta potty. I really hope no one was in there taking a dump at that time.
But it's kind of funny when a BMW crashes into a BMW advertisement. At least it wasn't as bad as the Camaro crash at the Grand-Am Road America.


My Favorite Republican Michele Bachmann

I swear if this chick is elected as the next president, I promise we are all fucking doomed, she's taking us all to the good 'ol times of 1800's.
The other day she signed a pledge to ban pron and now she think black folks had a good time during the slavery era.
You know what, maybe she's right. Back in the era of slavery, drugs was not a problem, everyone had some some type of job, parents didn't separate (unless they were forced by slave masters).

Gus Johnson Calls Abby Wambach Goal

I hope you enjoyed that call and if you didn't I give you Alex Morgan, the hottest chick on the USA roster.


Michele Bachmann Is Bat Shit Crazy

Rep. Michele Bachmann has signed a pledge vowing to maintain a firm stance against gay marriage and all forms of pornography if she is elected president in 2012.
#9: Humane protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy – out next generation of American children – from human trafficking, sexual slavery, seduction into promiscuity, and all forms of pornography and prostitution, infanticide, abortion and other types of coercion or stolen innocence.

Ban Porn? Really? You care about porn that much? That only makes me a little worried. Either she caught her husband faping or she's addicted to porn and she needs help. 
Isn't porn as American as apple pie? I mean who in America is going to go along with this shit?
America, please don't elect this bat shit crazy chick as your next president. Because I promise you, she's taking as back to the 1950's.

Happy Birthday To My Dog

Today my bitch turned 6 years old. So I decided to do a little something special for my girl.
And I think she enjoyed her little gift.

Bitches love carrot cake.

The State Of U.S. Men's Soccer Program

It seemed fantastic, almost like a dream when our boys beat Spain in the 2009 Confederations Cup. Even after the lose to Brazil in the final it seemed as if the U.S. men's team have finally arrived and it was full speed ahead.

But since the end of the 2010 world cup, some thoughts have crept into the head of many fans including me. And those thoughts has even become more loud after the lose to Mexico in the Gold Cup final.

I believe there are up and down cycles in everything. Same goes for the men's national team. They had their strong runs, and now it seems like they are sliding a little bit and Mexico is starting that upward swing of dominance of North America. But I think there is something going on more than just a cycle.
So is it the coach? Is it the player pool? Is it the system? And the answer probably is, it's a little bit of all.

But overall I think there are two main problems.
The first problem I think is players choice. I will give you an example. Take Carlos Bocanegra, everyone know, moving forward with Carlos Bocanegra is not a good decision, by the time the next World Cup rolls around it is safe to say that Bocanegra won't be on the team. So why continue to bring him into camp and start him over other potentials?
And the second problem is, and the most important there is something missing from the American game. I'm not really sure what it is. You can call it instinct, you can call it what ever but that missing ingredient is what is keeping the national team from moving forward. And when the American players  find that ingredient, only then will we take the next step.

Let me close by saying this, I'm a realist. I know how far soccer has come in the U.S. And I know how far the National team has come in the past 20 years. And no one should expect us to win the World Cup anytime soon. But we should improve every decade.


Dayton Police Beat ,Tasered, Pepper-sprayed A Mentally Handicapped Teenager

Dayton police "mistook" a mentally handicapped teenager's speech impediment for "disrespect," so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat him and called for backup from "upward of 20 police officers" after the boy rode his bicycle home to ask his mother for help, the boy's mom says.
     Pamela Ford says her "mentally challenged/handicapped" son Jesse Kersey, 17, was riding his bike near his Dayton home when Officer Willie Hooper stopped him and tried to talk to him.
     The mom says that "Prior to the incident described below, defendant Hooper knew Jesse and was aware that Jesse was mentally challenged/handicapped and a minor child."
     Nonetheless, Ford says, Hooper "apparently took Jesse's speech impediment for disrespect ... [and] began yelling at Jesse and after Jesse attempted to communicate with him[.] Jesse, being a minor and mentally challenged/handicapped, turned and rode his bike back to his home in an attempt to ask his mother, Ford, to help him communicate with defendant Cooper," according to the complaint in Montgomery County Court.     

 "At no point, even after being advised of Jesse's mental challenge/handicap by Jesse's family and numerous bystanders, did defendant Hooper, defendant Howard, or any other police officer present, attempt to communicate with Jesse or explain in terms he could understand as to why Jesse was being chased.
     "Jesse was handcuffed and hogtied before being placed in the back of a police cruiser.
     "Jesse was charged with assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing official business."

Courthouse News    

There goes couple of million in lawsuit.
I respect cops and I know they have a hard job, but when they do shit like this, its hard to feel sorry for them.
I mean how hard is it to figure out that someone might be mentally challenged? And it cannot be that hard to handle a 17 year old who is mentally challenged. Yea I know they got that retard strength thing going on but you don't need to beat, taser and pepper spray him.
What ever happened to "To Protect and Serve"? Just because they have a badge and pistol doesn't give them the right to treat the citizens like shit. So fuck the police, something needs to be done. I hope these pigs gets fired and is charged with excessive use of force and gets arrested and thrown in prison.
