KingKauff: KingKauff: rickythepenguin: Di Atribe: Me too. Sports rants are some of my favorite things & that was one of the very greatest.


Sports Rant Power Rankings
1. Lee Elia's, "wrigley field is a playground for assholes, 99% of the world is out there working for a living and there's 5,000 assholes with nothing better to do than sit in the bleachers....don't rip those guys [the team], rip my farkin' ass!" (keep in mind, this rant was like, 20 games into the season. you wold think he just lost a game 7 of the WS)

2. Tommy LaSorda, "what do I farkin' think of farkin' kurt farkin' bevacqua? farkin' guy couldn't hit farking water if he fell outta farkin' boat, what kind of farking question is that?"

3. Denny Green

4. Jim Mora, Playoffs

6. Rick Pitino "larrry bird AINT" WALKIN THRU THAT DOOR! ROBER PARISH AIN'T WALKIN THROUG THAT DOOR!"

7. Mike Gundy "IM MAN I'M 40! IF YOU HAVE A CHILD, WHO IS FAAAT!"

8. bobby knight, "i'm sick and farking tired of a farkin 8-10 record in this godamn conference!"

9.

Alan Iverson "Practice? Man, we talkin' 'bout practice"

Oh! and number ten: Herm Edwards "YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!"


Wasn't there also one from Ditka? Hm.... trying to think of them all....

"Practice" is my favorite. That might be because I saw it fairly quickly after it happened (thanks, fark) and I immediately loved it. It's like your first puppy, you know?

We ain't even talkin 'bout a game. We talkin 'bout practice.

I only remember it because Sunday on ESPN they mentioned in a promo for NFL countdown that it was ten years ago. Then I began to laugh remembering going into work the next day and me and a buddy found ways to use that line in every conversation.

me: hey (redacted), why you using those materials for project x instead of these?
him: because when you are working on a project, you WORK TO WIN IT!

or something like that. we used the "practice" bit all the time. that was much easier:

him: you get those reports produced and bound?
me: production? Man, we talkin' 'bout PRODUCTION!

Adolf Oliver Nipples: What about Brett Myers? Boom, outta here!



What bugs me about that is he says "go home". But with his country ass accent and wad of tobacky, it sounds like "boom".

so it is good but in fact, he says "g'home, outta here".

Dr Dreidel: Wasn't there a legendary rant by a Cubs manager (or is that #1 on your list)? Also, almost anything Ozzie Guillen has ever said to a live microphone belongs on that list.


yeah, that's Lee Elia circa 1983 i think.
 
2012-10-30 04:22:46 PM
My favorite has got to be either, "I'm a man! I'm 40!" or Jim Mora's soprano performance of "Playoffs?!?! I just want to win a game!".

I think there was on where Hal McRae actually hit a reporter with a telephone.

seumasokelly: I think there was on where Hal McRae actually hit a reporter with a telephone.



i thought of that one but that one was left off because the first rule of rants is they have to be entertaining. Hal McRae was about to engage in violence.

see also Bobby Bonilla's "I'l show you the Bronx!" locker room incident.

or.....I think Tony LaRussa and.....damn who was that Reds pitcher where they started fighitng in the locker room?
 
2012-10-30 04:26:32 PM

IAmRight: Jubeebee: The Bears have plenty of problems, primarily inconsistency.

This, and the fact that the Seahawks just beat the Bears (last year? two years ago?) in Chicago is the reason that I think that one is winnable for the Seahawks (the other two are winnable because Miami and Buffalo (in Toronto, even)). And the rest are at home.

Primed for a second-half run!


The Trollhawks certainly could make a run in the second half. I'd give you guys a better shot than MIN, who stand a decent chance at going 1-7 over the next 8.

The CHI-SEA game will be one to look forward to. Cutler does get rattled by pressure, which SEA can bring, and when he does he is prone to interceptions, which your secondary has a propensity for. On the other hand, Chicago has Forte, Hester, and a defense that is scoring more TDs than some offenses. It's a long way off, but it'll be interesting to see which sides of both teams we see.

Only certainty about playoffs after 2000 or so is that if the Cowboys or Redskins make it, they will be one and done.

Here they go, getting my hopes up after I'd written them off, only to go back on the road to dash my dreams again. The steelers I mean. Boy, would a win at NY be big... but I wouldn't bet a gumball on it. These guys do not seem to be road warriors this year. At all.

I think it depends entirely on who they draw. If it's a defense-first team like the Bears or 49ers, yeah, I think you're in trouble, but other than that? Eh. They look better now than they did in the 13-3 season. I'd be optimistic.

I think that's one of the reasons I love that one so much. It's easy to wedge into a conversation unexpectedly.

"I'm a man, I'm 40" is a close second (especially since I'm neither of those things).

Harv72b: while Arizona managed just 7 yards on the ground in 9 attempts.


This is kinda weird. The Niners' PR comment says this is the fewest since 1972. Considering how football was played in the early 70s, it seems odd that any team would ever get less than 7 yards running in a game back then.

/I'm seriously shocked it's not the record for fewest running yards allowed in a game.

riverwalk barfly: 49'ers and NYG too high. Packers and Bears too low. Cowboys should be higher considering....but I'm a homer that knows they will go 8-8, if lucky.


Did you watch these games on Sunday? Both had tough outings against bottom-3 teams.

I think the Bears are where they should be (offensive is mediocre, can't stop the pass [other than when we take it away], beasts against the run), and I can't argue Green Bay's position either. They are good, but they've still lost 3, and are ranked 12th - 26th in the major categories (run/pass/run def/pass def).

granted DRC isn't exactly tearing it up in Philly but the overlooked in the trade, was aside from DRC, we gave Philly this year's #2 pick. gee, i'm sure Arizona won't miss that in April, with needs at RB, OL, and QB, right?


Congratulations Whiz, you'll burn the #1 pick (probably 11 - 14 overall) on ANOTHER QB, signalling the end of either Skelton or Kolb's tenure, we have no #2 pick, and then table scraps in rounds 3 and 4.
 
2012-10-30 05:17:23 PM

IAmRight: Now you're sounding like a Seattle fan! Except too often Seattle teams don't even bother getting your hopes up.


You know, I am reminded that at the beginning of the season I said I'll believe Carroll is better than a .500 coach when he wins more than half his games.. And here they are at 4-4. Still though, I believe there is reason to have hope for the future in Seattle. I like Wilson - if that defense stays solid they could yet make some big noise. Problem is it's the wrong year to be looking for a wild card in the NFC with anything near .500 and SF does not look like they'll be relinquishing the West any time real soon.

Well, if you had an O-line, Skelton would be a good starter. It'd even help your RBs to go further than the hand off. That is where I would start.

Whiz's biggest mistake was getting his team to the Super Bowl and almost winning it. Cardinal fans now expect it.

If they had an O-line, one of their QBs might be able to go a season without missing half the games. Skelton making it out of last night's game without an injury is fairly impressive, all things considered.

In fairness, 10 QBs passed for 4,000+ yards last year. The Seahawks have played 5 of them (of course, they're 0-3 against anyone that hasn't, but, uh...yeah). They've gotten through Wilson's worst games (hopefully) and they've played 5 of their games on the road. Barring significant injuries, they're an ideal candidate to "improve" in the second half of the season, even if they don't actually get better.

Going from Rodgers, Brady, Stafford, Newton, Romo, home Cards, home Smith, home Bradford
to Ponder, Tannehill/Moore, road Skelton, road Bradford, road Smith, Fitzpatrick, Cutler, Sanchez? Oh hell yeah. They're going to look better without even trying.

/and they'll get Thurmond III back, meaning maybe Trufant goes and becomes a dime player
//and most people thought 4-4 at this point would be amazing at the beginning of the season

we have to be one of the most injured teams in the NFL (not as an excuse, just a fact). we lost the blindside tackle (levi brown) in preseason, which directly forced us to go go to Batiste, who was a UFA then bounced between like, 5 teams in 6 years. there's a reason for that.

THEN, whatever you think of Beanie Wells, he's not played at all I don't think and is out until about week 12 or so. we lost the RB that was I think #2 two years ago (the patriots fumble guy). Skelton went down in what, week 2, and then Kolb came in. then he got KTFO.

todd heap hasn't played since that 15-yd penalty in NE (which I can't STFU about). Peterson missed I think 1 game.

just problems everywhere.
