MANNY MANNY …..

Posted on

 what are you doing? As much as I love boxing and to see great match ups. This is lopsided. Manny  a natural 130-135 fighter who would not fight Eric Morales at 135. Is moving up to fight Oscar at maybe 140?  There’s no business like show business. Since this fight was made. It means alot of other fights could of been made but noone wanted to fight. At 140 Manny could fight Hatton, Mayweather, Cotto, Mosley whos fighting Mayorga. Sorry it just doesn’t make sense. I mean if boxing needs these big showcases of mismatches then great. If it turns out to be a real fight then even better. Lets hope for a real fight. Below you can the pricing on tickets. Im just like wow. Knowing they will sell out. Last time i checked there was only 140 tickets left. ching ching plus whatever pay per view makes.

Jets expectations to Farve to reach ?

Posted on

After 16 years as Green Bay’s head man. The sure bound first ballot hall of famer now leads the Jets off the runway. A team that hasn’t taking flight for a bit now hopes the new pilot can fly them into the playoffs this season. Which is highly doubtful. The jets don’t come close to the weapons Farve had in Green Bay. An aging quarterback re-learning a new system after 16 years or less because he did start with the Falcons. New system, ageing legs and arm. Those things where said about him last year by some reporter. Farve then proved the theory wrong by hurling the football down the field for supposedly 50+ yards. Only thing i question about the this great modern day quarterback is his heart and desire to keep taking the hits, the frustrations to build something and not coming close to the year he had last year. Not to mention he did come to the toughest division in football in my eyes. The colts and Patriots. Not an easy way to start a relationship. O don’t forget he’s playing in New York. All eyes on you Mr.Farve.

Farve had a 95.7 QB rating, 28 TD, 4000 yard season. Farve went 13-3 last season and losing in overtime to now the Superbowl champs the NY Giants by 3 points. Could that game be the reason he kept playing? Coming so close to beating the champs have left questions in his mind? If so why retire and put your team through that trouble.  Instead to satisfy his hunger to play he signs with a much lesser team in my eyes and into the toughest division to play in. The Patriots just had a perfect regular season, 16-0. The colts are no pushovers either. That is only in that division. Still have the chargers to worry about also. I don’t get it. Good luck Mr.Farve do your thing and best of luck.

Lets talk about Manny Mania…

Posted on

I’ve been following the guy since he made his debut with the Cleveland Indians. Storing this mans high school baseball cards in safe places since then. Bronx native Manny Ramirez has become one of the greatest hitting RIght handed hitters of all-time.  A life time .313 batting average, 500+ home run club, and 1600+ RBI and counting. A crucial part to the success of Boston’s dominance in my eyes. OK I would think this part can be accepted by everyone. Now there’s another side of him. The lackluster effort, the no hustle running down the line. His expertise in the outfield. I mean who else can make a diving play cutting off a relay throw. What other player has made a Willie Mays catch, climbed the wall gave a fan a high five turned around and doubled off a man at first base all in one play. On the down side they say he ruined his team or was a poor team member or player.  This is my grudge with the Boston organization. Everyone they had a problem with got traded or portrayed to be the bad guy. Coincidence Manny, Garciapara, Pedro ? All Spanish to huh? I honestly don’t think Big Papi will be happy to much longer in Boston. That’s not rumored or leaked. It’s just a gut feeling. I won’t deny that Manny is far from an angel. Does he look like he is putting in a 100 percent all of the time? No. In LA has he picked up the slack? YES. It’s contract time. Anyone would. The bad name the executives are placing on Manny is ridiculous. How many of them called out Roger Clemens with his tirade’s in Houston? Retired from the Yankees to escape a contract and end up in Houston. Then taking it upon himself to not travel and only pitch home games. RIGHT. As I write this I am not sure who to blame our ignorant players as time goes on. Baseball and it’s cowardly approach to dealing with players. I mean come on did it really take the US government to deal with the steroid issue. There’s so many ways to view Manny’s situation. You can blame baseball and how it is run. You can blame Manny for seeking attention? or Boston for treating its players like crap. Renteria didn’t last to long with them either. Who knows. We will see what happens. Manny wants 4 years 100 mill. He can put up the numbers. Why i don’t understand why they say he is lackluster when he produces. If you have a problem with his fielding put him as a DH? Executives are split on Manny. Some say he doesn’t deserve the 100 mill for 4 years because you never know what Manny your getting. Some say he deserves the money but not for 4 years. He might get half that for 2. The major Gm’s just don’t want to take the chance with him the smaller franchises can’t afford him. So this off season will be fun to watch. Manny said he would love to retire in LA. Then he said he wants the Yankees to sign him. So adding to that confusion I’d say that’s some Organized kuhnfyoozhuhn all on its own. =)

It’s raining in my brain

Ok this mami here is a real homie to me. I love her like mad. I feel she deserves some shine for a girl who does it all. school work family. You go kris. http://gigaom.com/2008/06/07/t-mobile-vs-starbucks-free-wifi/ Ah yes more phone tech news on whats going on in the world. We all love our phones, our gadgets, our consoles but i think more then anything we love to see them fight. Seems like Starbucks dealt a nice bitch slap to T-mobile when it partnered with at&t to provide free wi-fi. T-mobile clinched its little fists and said we are not taking this no more and decided to sue Starbucks for leaving them dry. At&t, Starbucks and t-mobile came to an agreement and worked out a 5 year roaming plan for current existing t-mobile wifi customers who pay for hot spot coverage (something that should be free in my eyes). T-mobile has its flaws , I’m a customer of this company and feel just a lil twist and turns in their plans would make this the ultimate company. Like making unlimited week night calls standard like everyone else. The blackberry bold is about to release or drop and it looks amazing but is it worth the upgrade?

The 1gig built in memory is awesome but if it came with a SD memory slot to add more it would of been more amazing. Aside some upgrades and looks I am not sure its a bigger upgrade then the curve and the 4.5 OS patch when it releases. On music news, seems like 50 cent is suing Taco Bell for mis-using or using his name without permission. According to Taco-Bell spokesperson they claim they made a good faith charitable offer to 50 cent to change his name for 1 day to 79 cents or 99 cents and rap his order in a commercial. 50 cent is suing Taco-Bell for 4 million dollars in damages. This isn’t the first time 50 cent has sued someone over his name and image. In 2007 he sued a game company for using him in a game called “shoot the rapper” as he walked across a rooftop and people got to take shots at him.  Now on to sports. This weekend promises to be a fun filled one in boxing. We finally get to see to mega giants go at it again. Miguel Cotto vs Antonio Margarito. Fight takes place this Saturday. Welterweights: Miguel Cotto (32-0, 26 KOs) vs. Antonio Margarito (36-5, 26 KOs), 12 rounds, for Cotto’s title. Should be a banger.  Dont forget to visit my boys doing their thing over at Organized khun-fyoo-zhuhn. http://www.myspace.com/organizedguys . Head on over and show them some love.
