I kind of feel bad being the only guy that ever shows up in the "Bucky Channel Writers" Tweet box on the right of the page, yet also being the guy who probably contributes the least. I don't mean to be the guy who just takes, but dog eat dog world, right? No, not really. So I figure a monthly submission here and there will keep the masses happy. The masses, like they're all after me for not posting.
Since it's been a while, I haven't been able to throw popular opinion on anything. I mean, it's been a real long time. Here is a list of things that have happened since my last post (in no specific order):
- The Brewers made the playoffs! Then lost to the loathed Cardinals.
- Those Cardinals went on to win the World Series and got rewarded by Pujols saying hey St. Louis blow me.
- The NBA went away... Then came back.
- NASA found possible water on Mars.
- Hurricane Irene fucked some shit up.
- People started "Occupying" places.
But on a serious note, can that please be true? If you didn't know, google "Ryan Braun Herpes" or if you're lazy, I did it for you. Apparently his high testosterone level may have in fact been due to his herpes treatment, which involves, yes, testosterone hikes. Seems like another "I swear, I didn't take PED's" but for the first time ever, could it actually be true? Trenni sure thinks so. I'm not one to buy into rumors, alleged allegations, ect ect. So I will leave my thoughts at that.
Staying on Brewers subject, I am actually a fan of the Aramis Rameriz signing. Obviously losing Prince is a big deal, but if ARam can fill about 3/4th of his production we will be absolutely fine. Plus, who do you want on the corner, ARam, or McGehee? That question was answered quickly as they then shipped McGehee out to where any baseball player goes to die, Pittsburgh. Man I am sure going to miss little Mack throwing out first pitches... And seeing Casey's wife every now and again, she was easy on the eyes.
Switching gears to football, how about them Packers? No really, how are they doing? I haven't been paying attention.. Are we any good? I really don't even want to talk about this subject, I mean, what if we lost next week, would I be the proverbial jinx? I don't want to be that guy... No one wants to be that guy. So lets just leave it as is, and we will come back to this subject in a bit. The only thought I can leave you with is: Please god Jordy Nelson have a beast week, my Fantasy Football playoff team would really really thank you.
Am I the only person excited for the NBA to be back? It's not the biggest spectacle in the world, but I don't know how many more reruns of 30 Rock, South Park, Storage Wars, and/or any show on the History channel I can take. Unless we're talking American Pickers of course, that show is bad ass.
Every year I say this, but on paper, the Bucks don't have a bad team. A starting five of: Bogut, Jennings, Jackson, Gooden, Mbah-Moute isn't the worst thing in the world, especially when your bench still consists of Delfino... Well, actually, I just realized our bench kind of sucks, disregard! But really, if Sanders can develop into a mediocre player and Tobias Harris is the prospect he is meant to be at the mean age of 19, maybe we still have a shot at that six seed.. Maybe.
Since I missed so much time, I feel I could type about things that the other writers here at TBC have definitely already covered forever, so I will not drowned you down with duplicate content. But I will leave you all with a few thoughts that I really wish I had time to indulge into deeper.
- Why haven't people put Hazelnut creamer in Hot Chocolate since it's been invented? If you've never done this before, you are welcome.
- Is Tim Tebow really the second coming?
- I am exactly $1 ahead on sports betting this year.
- If you use the right keyboard app, The word "Golic" (as in Mike Golic) will autofinish to "Holocaust"
- Skip Bayless really is the worst best thing to ever happen to ESPN.
- Lee Corso is so much more of a badass after his stroke than before it.
I shall now go back to tweeting and I now no longer feel bad about clogging up the sites Twitter box. Oh, and here is me trending with the trends and Tebowing like a boss, it's fantasy football karma, nothing more. Until next time.
