So the Jets beat the Giants

And since I am a dickhead Giants fan I want to point out a few things.

Actually I think it is a fair assessment. Clearly the Giants have major receiving problems but a star was born in Saturday's loss so hopefully that takes care of the fact none of the other receivers can catch footballs.

Here are my Pro's and Con's for both teams from Saturday's game:

Jets Pro's:

Sanchez looked pretty good after the 1st Quarter.

Leon Washington is what Reggie Bush was supposed to be if he did not suck.

Jets Receivers looked deeper and better than people give them credit for.

Sanchez had all day to throw.

Giants Pros:

Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw are both beasts.

Eli Manning had all day to throw.

Steve Smith was torching the secondary and then dropping passes, but he is known for his hands. This will not continue.

Hakeem Nicks is a star.

Jets Cons:

Sanchez looked completely lost in the first quarter against a secondary that was already suspect and missing it's most talented CB with an injury.

Sanchez was completing passes by being elusive and finding open people, but they were open the whole time. He needs to make better reads to win against good secondaries.

Thomas Jones sucked and the Jets line was amazing.

The Jets secondary was getting torched the entire game.

Lito Sheppard is horrendous. He has always been, do not be fooled by his Pro Bowl appearances.

Vernon Gholston is really soft.

Giants Cons:

They really need Antonio Pierce. BAD.

Pass rush couldn't get passed the Jets line.


Aaron Ross is hurt, and clearly they need him if a rookie QB torches them.

Hakeem Nicks needs more time with the 1st team. he is a star.

All in all Jets fans, Sanchez is progressing pretty well for a Rookie. However, their WR were predictably unimpressive, and he needs to make more reads. Also they need to get Leon Washington the ball, he is a star. I think things are looking up for both teams, and depending on the competition I think it is possible we could see both NY teams in the playoffs this year.

Why Football is the best sport in America

Football is only a few weeks away and like every year I am pumped. With Football's annual dominance in sports ratings upon us, it got me thinking. Why is football so great?

Well I would say while Basketball is very popular, the only passionate argument against Football being America's greatest sport would come from Baseball fans. Baseball is America's past time, and that is exactly why Football is a better sport.

You would never consider Football a past time, but you might call Dominos and Checkers a past time. Granted baseball has dedicated hardcore fans (I go to more baseball games than anything so I think I fit the bill) but nothing is better than two teams going to war on a Sunday after noon. We sit with our beers screaming at the top of our lungs and fighting with anyone who talks bad about your team (You can Ask Mike Wilson about that). Nothing beats Football.

I find myself as a baseball fan more excited about trade deadlines and off season moves than the games themselves. I appreciate the subtle moves a manager makes and the chess game that occurs in baseball as much as the next guy, but don't let anyone convince you that Football isn't a thinking game. Every play is a setup for the next play in football. All of the players on the field at one time are a chess piece in a violent game. Players are putting their bodies on the line just to have more points than the other team.

Football has the greatest athletes and the smartest coaching. They play once a week because their bodies couldn't handle any more. Football is not an American past time, it is an American passion. I cannot wait :)

Get with the times person with regular flip phone

Ok, this is probably a boring blog topic but lately I have had nothing to write about/been lazy and I saw someone on the train this morning with a shell flip phone and it felt like I was looking at an ancient artifact.

Isn't it kind of scary how quickly phone technology has transitioned to smart phones? In a matter of like 2 years smart phones have become so popular that I look at these people like they are using laser disc or something when I see them.

However I do mourn the death of Ryan's sexy pink Razr.

That is all I have right now, just a lame random thought. Maybe I will update again this weekend some time.

Karina Jimenez

Can you please leave Gladiel alone. His girl is angry, he is not your therapist and if you need a consuler (her spelling not mine, though Brian will let you know I am not the best speller)fine one.

These are the emails I receive almost daily, because some moron has taken more than 2 years to realize that is not her email.

In the past 6 months I have received at least 10 requests to reset my password, I have received hotel reservation confirmations, I have received flight reservation confirmations, and countless personal emails many of which written in Spanish.

2 Years ago I thought this was a reasonable mistake. I figured that Karina must have registered a similar email with Google. It happens, and I waited for the emails to stop coming in. They never did.

I really wonder just how dumb Karina is. Who can't access their email for 2 years and still fills out forms with it. I hope you read this Karina Jimenez. You are a real dummy.

Edit: Her name may actually be Katherine Jimenez. I see both on various emails. Unless it is two different people who are wrong. In that case it would be mind blowing.

Annoying Activist Rant

I have barely blogged lately due to a busy schedule, but I was so irritated at lunch yesterday that I thought this would be necessary to stay sane. I've ranted about a lot of things in the past, but NOTHING is more irritating than people trying to get you to donate money to their dumb causes on the streets of New York City.

I am not sure if these stupid college liberals roam the streets in other cities as well, but at least 2 or 3 times a month I get stopped by some dumb well to do white person asking me to donate $20 a month to save trees or animals.

I would be less irritated if there were people openly trying to rob me on the street twice a month. How is this even legal?? Who wants to be stopped on the street and guilted in trying to donate your hard earned money. That is blatant harassment and soliciting. If I wanted to just openly peddle things on the street I would be arrested, so why are these people different.

I cannot even fathom the mindset of these people. They are usually college age, and usually white people. What a shocker. How nice it must be to be so well off as a college student, that you actually think it is reasonable that people would donated $20 a month to some fund with which we have no idea what they are doing with our money. It must be nice to be so out of touch with the value of money where you do not have to worry like most college students.

A couple of months ago, one of these douche bags walked up to me and said "Global Warming is a serious issue, can I talk to you for a minute?" I then proceeded to ask them why Global Warming was a serious issue, and they couldn't even recite the dumb facts on that stupid Powerpoint we all saw Al Gore read. They just were like, it is killing the environment man, and other cliches that are supposed to get me "really thinking."

Fuck your stupid causes, and leave alone the people trying to get from point A to point B. Your lives aren't important, you aren't doing anything important, and you know nothing about Global Warming. Maybe they should walk around with a scientist and I will take them more seriously. Anyway that is all I have for now. Lemon out.
