Goldy's Random Takes


A random picture of Danzig. Why not?
  • Nice knowing you Ryan Grant. Grant managed to turn large holes into 4 yard gains the entire first half. A decent RB would have had 100 yards in the first half with the kind of blocking Grant was getting.
  • Season on the line and John Kuhn is the man who needs to make a play for us.
  • Outside of Mason Crosby, special teams was a joke the entire day. The only times Carolina didn't have a big return on kickoffs was when Crosby nailed it into the end zone. Plus, the Packers special teams coach is a complete jackass.
  • Derrick Frost = Fail. What a JAG.
  • Was in Vegas a few weeks back. Here are my random celebrity sightings. Pete Rose, Kenny Stabler, Wanda Sykes, and Steve Levy from ESPN who sat at the blackjack table next to us and instantly had them move the table minimum from $25 to $100. OK, big shooter.
  • I know I have seen Wanda Sykes in plenty of things, but outside of a couple episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" I couldn't tell you what. I do know she currently has a monopoly on the "angry black woman in a comedy role" market.
  • Won most of my money in Vegas betting on the NBA. Some of those lines were just stupid. I swear they put those out there just to get some action on the games.
  • Not sold on the Badgers basketball team yet. I think they will have as many losses this year as the last two years combined. That would still only be like 9 losses. However, the Big Ten could be truly awful this year, so I reserve the right to amend that statement.
  • As Tony has pointed out, the D just isn't there this year. Too much reaching. The guys just don't look quick enough to hang with their guy.
  • As with any Bo Ryan team, the Badgers will get better as the season goes on. I am thinking 3rd in the Big Ten and a 7 or 8 seed.
  • They could be good in two years. Lot of young guys getting PT right now.
  • Marquette lost to Dayton. Good for them.
  • I stopped at Costco yesterday to see if it would be worth it to get a membership. The 18 cans of Guinness for $20 sold me. The 8 packs of toothbrushes also sold me. What 2-person family doesn't need to purchase 8 toothbrushes at a time?
  • The Kansas-Missouri football game was awesome. The 4th Quarter was something. Mizzou's D rivals the Badgers for sheer craptitude. Great back and forth game with guys making huge plays in the clutch.
  • Speaking of plays in the clutch, based on the way the season has gone, was there any doubt the Panthers would score a TD?
  • I am thinking of starting a new series on Chuckie Hacks. "Random free BMG CD selected during my college years". It has nothing to do with sports, but has potential to entertain.
  • Went out in Racine Wednesday night. Good Times. Especially when you hang out at a bar called the "Brass Monkey". They played some requested Eazy-E for us.
  • Feel bad for the Bucks this season. The Redd and Bogut injuries have been killers. The one think I like about this team is that unlike previous years, the battle all the way til the end. The get in the games in the 4th, they just can't get over the top.
  • Sessions could be the real deal. Like Mo, he can score, but unlike Mo, he can get others involved.
  • Ha-ha Texas.
  • Gallardo will win more games in 2009 than the highest victory total Sheets ever reached, which I believe is 13.
  • The Brewers need to make sure Shouse is on the roster in 2009.
  • I kind of miss Crank Yankers. Yah, I wanna go to Hawaii!
  • Ha-ha Charlie Weiss. You are truly a turd. This reminds me of one of my all-time favorite shirts I do not own.
  • Seriously, season on the line. John Kuhn.

What's your issue with Texas. It's obvious they got jobbed.
The BCS keeps telling us that every week is a playoff game...okay, the Horns played a "playoff game" against Oklahoma and beat them. So, what playoffs system will shit on that and have the team you beat advance instead of you?
It's obvious that winning games is the most important thing, but blowing teams out is the second most important thing; even if you give up 40 points. As long as you score 50-plus, then you're a "great team".
What a pile of shit.
I'm a big Horns fan and we have to rely on Missouri to beat OU? Not happening. The Tigers are a bitch team.
So anyway, what's your beef with Texas?

Texas eats a bucket of dicks. Now, I'm not saying they're gay; no, "ya'll" can keep your homophobia. I'm just saying that they fly to China, sit down in an eatery, and order up a big, steaming bucket of dicks. Fuck Texas. Shiner Bock and Lone Star suck.

That all said... You may have just gotten that fuck... From the BCS.

I understand your point, Mister Tony, but don't you think Tech got jobbed? They beat Texas. If every week is a playoff and they beat Texas, why is Texas more desrving than Tech?

It's not a perfect system, but these tytpes of arguements work well for college football because it gets people riled up and talking about the sport.

I don't have a huge beef with Texas. I really don't like Vince Young.
