Sports World Humor

June 16, 2010

While indulging in the wonderful world of sports this past week I have found many things to be interesting and humorous. Everyone loves the decisions made by coaches which leave us scratching our heads and provide us with something to complain about the next day when we converse with our buddies. Here are a few “incidents” (if you will) which caught my attention (these are not numbered worst to first, they’re just numbered).

1. Darnell Dockett’s amazing mathematical skills while calling out Albert Haynesworth and Mike Florio’s sarcastic comment.)
“That’s why I tell y’all I’m nothing like these dudes, for a 100 million my ass will play 4-3, 3-4, 5-9, 4-8, and still whip ass!” Dockett declared. (Actually, we’ve heard that Vikings coach Brad Childress has been experimenting with the 4-8 alignment. On offense.) courtesy of

2. Guy’s reply to Darnell Dockett’s calling out of Haynesworth.

Running a 5-9, 99% of the players will whip ass.

3. Ron Gardenhire starting Nick Punto (Batting Average of .231), Trevor Plouffe (.130), Brendan Harris (.160), and Drew Butera (.135) in the same lineup on Sunday 6/13 vs. the Atlanta Braves…he also started Michael Cuddyer in Center Field…funny thing happened that game, the Twins got out-hit 16-4 and lost 7-3…

4. Ron Gardenhire’s unexplainable desire to have someone who is hitting under the Mendoza line (batting average under .200 for those of you who don’t know baseball) while Delmon Young sits in the 7 hole batting .295 with 8 bombs and 41 RBI…
—Lead in to next comment-Matt Tolbert is also a “Gardy favorite for the 2 spot…he’s hittin a whopping .167

5. Perhaps the most startling incident of the week, Matt Tolbert hits a Home run at target field followed by a Joe Mauer strikeout??? (Nick Punto was also 2/3 that game with a 2 RBI double…

6. Chilly Strikes Again – Vikings sign Ryan Moats while Brian Westbrook is still a free-agent. They now have 6 rb’s on the roster and Adrian Peterson is carrying a “weighted football” at practice to work on not fumbling…Chilly claims it’s like having a doughnut on a baseball bat meaning the ball will then feel like nothing in Peterson’s arms…meaning he will be more aware he’s holding it?

7. This just in…Minnesota coaches suck? What?

8. Glen “Big Baby” Davis’ slober and Nate Robinson’s comment “weez like Shrek and Donkey!!” courtesy of Chris Emma for the quote.

9. Pau Gasol is still the ugliest man in the NBA, the question is does he look more like an Ostrich or a Camel?

10. Ray Allen sets an NBA record for 3-pointer made in a Finals Game followed by missing his next 16 straight (minimum, not sure of the exact number).

11. The Big 10 decides to add Nebraska…first of all they’ve been the Big 10 for years with 11 teams, now they have 12 teams. The Big 12 teams dropped to 10 teams…do the conferences switch names??

Just a few things to ponder and discuss, enjoy!
