Mocking the Cubs could replace the WNBA

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 9, 2008

I received a rather hateful e-mail accusing me of taking pleasure in the pain of the Cubs fans. I was shocked…SHOCKED at this accusation, then I realized that they were right and promptly started laughing in an evil manner.

I’m not the only one who is making fun of the Cubs. In fact I found an amusing video in which the Daily Show with Jon Stewart mentions the Cubs.

JON STEWART: Cubs fans are considered a subset of stupid?
JOHN OLIVER: Oh absolutely John. They’ve had a hundred years to figure out that what they want will never happen, and yet they still yearn for it.
JS: And that is stupid.
JO: Yes, that’s very stupid.
JS: Because the Cubs will never win.
JO: No, that’s right John. The Chicago Cubs will never, ever win the World Series. They won’t do it.
JS: They’ve made God angry.
JO: That’s right. That’s what I’m saying.

Brilliant!!!

And check this shirt out. (Note we here at YMSSWC are not political in any means but the shirt is funny as hell)

It’s hard NOT to make fun of the Cubs especially after they blatantly vandalized the visitor’s dugout in Los Angeles after getting swept by the Dodgers.

Moments after the final out (Alfonso Soriano fanning on three pitches), one of the Cubs — maybe two, maybe all 25 — took something large and hard, like a shoe or bat or sledgehammer, and busted a fair-sized water pipe at the back of the visitors’ dugout.

Water gushed out, and very quickly the floor of the area leading into the locker room was flooded.

White Sox fans in the Chicago area are making my mocking look like child’s play and are taking sweet sweet revenge.

Sunday morning at the Cubs house. A battery-operated CD player with a timer went off at exactly 7:30. A bullhorn is attached to the CD player. The whole contraption is placed right outside the Cubs couple’s bedroom. Blasting out of the bullhorn is a very loud and painfully slow version of “Go Cubs Go.”

“Go.”

“Cubs.”

“Go.”

Ah, but the Sox husband couldn’t leave it at that. No, as the Cubs husband sought the source of the noise, he ventured out to his front yard. There he found 100 lawn signs with nothing but a drawing of a billy goat stuck in the ground. Yes, 100 signs. For some reason, that number rings a bell.

What happened to the good old’ days where you got revenge on someone by killing their house pets?

So you see I’m being nice about my mocking…for now. Now it’s your turn. Add a caption for the picture below.

Does Fulmer’s future hinge on a win against Georgia?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 9, 2008

Has Coach Fulmer’s career come down to whether the VOLS win or lose come this Saturday? It depends on whether if you believe the glass is half empty or half full.

For those that believe the glass is half empty then the most obvious answer is yes. They can simply point out to the current record of their beloved VOLS. Tennessee (2-3) is last in the SEC East, and only two other teams in the entire conference stands at 0-2 in SEC play. Those are Arkansas and Mississippi State.

When Josh Briscoe says things like “If we play the way we did Saturday, we won’t beat many (Southeastern Conference) teams” after the meager 13 point performance like last Saturday night, it does cause some to wonder.

Statements like that also cause a great deal of anguish and stress to those whose glasses remain half empty. Those that believe their glass is half empty believe their booing is a badge of honor.

Of course the Tennessee Coach Phillip Fulmer and his players aren’t exactly helping their situation either. When asked if this Saturday’s showdown with the SEC Eastern Conference rival Georgia was a must win Fulmer was quick to answer.

“It’s all of the above,” Fulmer said. “It’s not business as usual. This is a very important time for us as we fight like heck to stay in the championship mix and hope somebody else gets beat.”

Tennessee is in the bottom half of the SEC in 10 major offensive categories, including last in pass efficiency (102.6) and first downs (15.8 per game).

The opening point spread is Georgia by 13 and any glass half empty person will quickly point out how 13 is the unluckiness of all.

“But we brought it on ourselves,” Quarterback Nick Stephens said. “We didn’t really play as well as we could have the first couple of games.

“It’s to be expected.”

It might be expected, but to most it’s not accepted. Of course the people whose glass remains half empty will also quickly point out about how Fulmer has a 9 lives and a contract for life, then their glass goes from being half empty to ¾ empty. Read the rest of this entry »
