Sportsyack and Those Idiots

Sportsyack was still getting our beauty sleep on Friday morning, when the Junkies opening segment turned into an argument between EB and Lurch, which ultimately led to EB referring to yours truly as "idiots".

EB- who when he's not pinning the Caps problems on a "fat" Alex Ovechkin (Actually, the Caps have won 10 of their last 11, so I'm pretty sure that now EB thinks Ovie was the founder of P90X), he's trying to be as "entertaining as possible", because that's the mandate of the show.

The show's mandate began hurting, when EB started talking about bags under his eyes, his gray hair, and his sleep apnea (11:00 mark). Lurch's lack of interest in EB's story became apparent to the listeners, when EB started laying into him at the 13:11 mark. It culminated with EB saying that Lurch just "checks out", and resorts to interacting with the texters to the show like "Sportsyack, and those idiots." (19:35 mark).

Thanks to the technology of podcasts, our own Beaver in Sterling, and Twitter followers @RandomDonk and @klburke88 for alerting us of the early morning discussion, we have embedded the link here:

Just in case that fat ass Alex Ovechkin happens to stumble across this link, hopefully he'll watch the video below. This is how a real athlete performs.

The Miami in Heat

Crying? No, we're not talking about the reaction of one of the ladies on the LPGA Tour, whose just lost the Women's US Open in a playoff, after missing a 3 foot par putt. Nor are we talking about members of the U Conn Women's basketball team, following Stanford snapping their 90 game unbeaten streak. We're talking about the Miami (in) Heat- grown men, who according to short timer and Abercrombie and Fitch catalog boy Eric Spoelstra, is what these pussies were doing following their loss on Sunday to the Bulls.

Crying? All joking aside about their masculinity, or lack there of, but for Christ's sake, this was a regular season loss in early March, not Game 7 of the Championship finals, you yogurt slappers!

What's next, The Big 3 syncing up their menstrual cycles?...Showing up for post game pressers in dresses and Kentucky Derby Day hats?

The only way this could get any better, following all the offseason hoopla of "The Decision" and that circus The Big 3 put on in front of their adoring fans upon Lebron and Chris Bosh's arrival, is if Bosh starts corn holing Lebron's mom, ala Delonte West (allegedly).

Somebody within that organization better start fucking something up soon, whether its crushing G-L-O-R-I-A or just putting a boot in someone's ass, because this motley crew is going nowhere fast. Five straight losses, 6 of their last 7, and they're not beating anybody.

The in Heat are 15-19 vs. teams with winning records, and are a dreadful 0-6 vs. the 2 teams (Boston and Chicago) ahead of them in the Eastern Conference. And the body language and commentary coming out of these guys is beyond panic button stage.

Following last week's 24 point lead meltdown loss to the Magic, the sulking and hanging heads spoke volumes. And then theres Bosh's comments following last night's loss to Portland, in which Bosh's line read 7 points, 4 rebounds, 0 assists.

"A closed mouth don't get fed."

Discontent, words of a mutinist, or both?

Karma is a bitch, South Beach. The assumption that you ass clowns were going to rattle off 5, 6, maybe 7 championships is laughable. And maybe in due time you'll win one or three, but not this year. Pat Riley and his slick backed mop can't even save your season.

And when the Knicks beat your pompous asses in round 1 of this year's playoffs, me and Judge Patrick will be slapping high fives with Spike Lee from here to Brooklyn.

"So its Wade's house, LeBron's kingdom, and Bosh's pit, baby!"

End of an Error

The Redskins released Running Back Clinton Portis on Monday, bringing an end to the fan favorite's career in DC. His 7 seasons in Washington never quite lived up to the two 1,500+ yard seasons he had in Denver. His tenure in Washington was injury plagued, which saw Portis only playing in 13 games over the span of the last two seasons, and only half of the team's games in 2006.

Although CP was indeed a fan favorite, who played hard, dressed up and had fun with the media, and arguably may have been the Redskins all time best 3rd down blocker (for Running Backs), at the end of the day, the trade that brought him here was just another mistake in the long line of them, in the Dan Snyder error.

Mike Shanahan, who spent his first season in DC being criticized for the way he operates, many of whom were Albert Haynesworth sympathizers, who questioned his abilities and football intelligence, was quite the clever one when the Portis trade was made back in 2004. Having had Portis in Denver for his first two seasons, in which Portis ran the ball over 560 times for just under 3,100 yards, Shanahan saw an opportunity in DC by the name of Champ Bailey.

During Bailey's time in Washington, he was a four time pro bowler, never missed a game, and might've been the best tackling Redskins corner since Pat Fischer. In Denver, Bailey has made the Pro Bowl 6 of his 7 seasons there, had a 10 interception season in 2006, and in two seasons as a Bronco (2006 and 2009), did not allow a single touchdown reception against him.

Unlike Portis, Bailey was never a distraction off the field, and Bailey has stayed pretty much healthy. Granted Portis plays a more vulnerable position, and is pretty much an old car with too many miles on his tires, but as Portis was handed his walking papers, Denver was resigning Bailey to a 4 year extension. Throw in the fact that the trade also included the Redskins sending Denver a 2nd round pick, and our argument is not even an argument, its fact.

As Charlie Sheen would say, Bronco fans, "Winner...."

Running backs are a dime a dozen, most of whom are products of the offensive line in front of them. Shut down corners, like a stud Quarterback on the other side of the ball, are like a rare gem that you never, ever trade away.
