"I wish that I believed in fate"

With the Wizards season over and Agent Steinz now having to resort to covering pro lacrosse, I was sent the best cross-over website for both the D.C. Sports Bog and Bog-TV Cheddarvision. While it may simply be a way to watch cheese age (it’s the new watching grass grow) it is still almost as exciting as a midlevel boxing match. Go there and watch the cheese age LIVE.

Best of all the, Bog Show can now get its "You Tube Clip of the Week" and its "Artisanal Cheese of the Week" all in one single exciting package. Regional television will never be the same

Mmmm cheddar aging.

If you watch the office, you know you cannot resist the sweet sounds of Andy Bernard. Luckily the Thigh Master has collected all of his a capella song stylings in one place. Check out the greatest hits....and drift awaaaay

For some reason Spoony D sent me this video of real life dungeons and dragons warriors, so I had to show him what happens when these guys get arrested.

I'm wearing boots of escaping!

I soaked up the hype and watched the big fight this weekend. If that was anywhere near the best that boxing has to offer, then it is finished as a major sport in the US. Unlike just about every MMA fight that I have ever watched, there was never even a threat of one fighter knocking the other one down during any of the 40 or so rounds. I don’t need to see blood or broken bones, I just want a chance that one guy will knock the other guy down or at least into the ropes. De La Hoya simply chased Mayweather around the ring while Pretty Boy Floyd danced around and jabbed him in the face when he got tired of chasinge. How exciting. The fight ended in a split decision with each fighter claiming victory, and even Pretty boy Floyd’s own father stating that De La Hoya should have won.

From watching the full broadcast, and the hype leading up, it was clear that boxing knows its in trouble, and has already developed a complex with regard to MMA. If you watch an MMA or UFC event you do not see some clown like Jim Lampley claiming that boxers don’t have nearly the skill of MMA fighters. But for some reason Lampley felt like he needed to take time out to bash the UFC in what had been billed as the superbowl of boxing. Watch a UFC event and the only time boxing is mentioned is as one of the many disciplines involved in MMA. Give it up Lamps and go back to beating your wife.

Also to say that a top flight boxer would defeat an MMA fighter in a mixed martial arts fight is redizzonkulous. A boxer would win in a BOXING match but a top level MMA fighter would destroy the boxer in a cage. Yet leading up to the fight, Mayweather began running his mouth and saying he would beat any MMA fighter. Lightweight champ Sean Sherk immediately accepted any challenge by PBFloyd and SAT RINGSIDE to remind Mayweather of that fact that he would elbow him into unconsciousness if PBF fought in a cage. Here is how a fight between PBFloyd and Sherk would go...Sherk charges at PBF with his hands in front of his fact, Mayweather lands a couple of huge blows to the top of Sherk's hard head as he rushes in, Sherk takes down PBF to the ground and proceeds to hold him in place while he takes his face apart with elbows. Mayweather would, however, win in a jump rope contest.

UPDATE: Mayweather apologizes and smartly claims he does not want to fight in the UFC.

AND NOW FOR OUR CON-IDIOTS OF THE WEEK

When I saw this headline pop up on the RSS feeder, I did not even read the story.
"NRA opposes bill to stop gun sales to terror suspects."
I just figured this was an overzealous liberal blogger doing what partisan supporters often do, re-writing the headline with significant hyperbole.

Then I was sent the same article by semi-republican Gerard G. under the headline “I need a new party” and I realized
...holy shit, that was the actual real headline, and the intention of the NRA...the NRA is really trying to block a bill that would restrict the sale of guns to TERROR SUSPECTS.

Why do we even have a gun lobby anymore? Do they really think that terror suspects should have a right to hunt with uzi’s if they feel like it. Really, terror suspects should have a right to hunt with automatic weapons? I don’t even know what else to write. I think we can now start commenting freely on Va Tech, this shit is so stupid.

This just in, 3 out of 10 (30% for you non-math majors) of the Republicans running for president likely believe that Noah actually built an Ark and collected two of each and every animal, including aardvarks, elephants, and single cell amoebas before sailing around the world

“As the Bush administration's so-called "AIDS czar," Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias was criticized for emphasizing faithfulness and abstinence over condom use to combat sexually transmitted diseases.

Tobias was one of these religious right wackos who believed that teaching kids, in both the US and in third-world countries, only about abstienence with no mention of that icky safe sex. Want to stop disease and unwanted pregnancy, just teach them about abstinence, and how to be religious. Tobias even thought that preaching Christianity would help convince everyone to stay in committed relationships like his. So guess what happened last week... the dumbass hypocrite was found on the D.C. Madam’s list ordering hookers like they were netflix movies.
Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias submitted his resignation Friday, one day after confirming to ABC News that he had been a customer of a Washington, D.C. escort service whose owner has been charged by federal prosecutors with running a prostitution operation.

You know what i did instead of watching the fight? I downloaded Punch Out! to my Wii and played it for an hour or two. Watching Lil'Mac kick Glass Joe's ass was far more interesting.

Great post, as usual!

True. I'm sure it was much better, but I streamed the fight for free on Winamp so not much was lost.

I am so done with boxing... UFC & MMA is definitely better. People die in that and those dudes have to deal with so much more than just punches.

I hate that damn Soda Popinski.
