UNCLE SAUL KATZ HAS A BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG MOUTH

It’s amazing that Uncle Saul Katz  didn ‘t end up like Maurie Kessler (a/k/a Maurie’s Wigs) in Goodfella’s. The crew, especially Jimmy The Gent couldn’t take Maurie’s constant talking and ball breaking so they had him snuffed.

It seems Bernie Madoff  felt the same way about Uncle Saul who it seems just couldn’t shut the fuck up about the windfall profits he and his bother in law Freddy Skill Sets were making investing with Madoff. Bernie got a little nervous with Uncle Saul as he worried that some real honest to goodness financial advisers would hear big mouth Saul chirping at the Mahjong table.

TODAY IS NOT ABOUT THE M-E-T-S, IT’S ABOUT THE J-E-T-S

As a NY Football Giants fan, my main enjoyment this past weekend should be that the Dallas Cowgirls choked again in the NFL post season (how about a great big Kranepool Society  FUCK YOU to Jerry  Jones the owner of the Cowgirls and how about that fat fuck Flozell Adams, left a playoff game with a boo-boo on his calf, fucking coward!) but in fact I am actually happy with the Jets winning yesterday in San Diego.

The Giants fans-Jets fan relationship is strange by New York sports fan standards. As a NY Ranger fan, I hate the Icelanders immensely (da-da-da-dada da-da-da-dada da-da-da-dada da-da-da POTVIN SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!)  and as most local hockey fans, I’m blasé about the K.C. Scouts/Colorado Rockies/NJ Devils. They only player well known in Newark is their over weight and overrated goaltender. As a Boston Cletics fan the good thing about having the Knicks and Nets around is I get to see the C’s in person four times a year. As for the Bronx Bastards, the hatred between us and them is well documented. But as far as Giants-Jets fans go, we just go about our business come football season.

I got wrapped up the Jets game yesterday because the style of football they play is the antithesis of what the NFL is all about these days and a style I love. It’s all about spread offenses and quarterbacks throwing 35 times a game Wildcat formation (which is a basic Pop Warner offense) and high flying wide outs and games in domes under controlled climates but then here come the Jets with a page out of” simple still works” playbook. Pound the ball on offense, control the clock, have your QB mange the game and not have to make a big play, then on defense attack the line of scrimmage like a jail break and make the QB as uncomfortable in the pocket as you can, hit the wide outs hard early to get them out of their rhythm  . Add in a few turnovers and you have a wining formula.

During the season Jets coach Rex Ryan annoyed me with his big mouth and bluster. The reason being I was so used to the Same Old Jets who are great in April on Draft Day and then again in August in games that don’t count in the standings but then come the regular season, well Same Old Jets. But Ryan has taken that Same Old Jets stigma and turned it into a positive, a rallying cry. Last night on the SNY Jets Post Game show the played a clip of Ryan and his team in their jubilant locker room. Ryan gathered his team around him and said something that has converted me to be a Rex Ryan fan:

“ok fella’s listen up, great game today, great effort and you should be proud of everything you’ve accomplished so far. But tomorrow the headline in the papers will be THREE FIRST PLACE TEAM ADVANCE……..AND THE FUCKIN’ JETS”

With that his players roared in delight. This is Rex Ryan’ team  and the story of the Jets season so far is an unbelievable one and as crazy as this sounds from a Giants fan, I hope they win the Fuckin’ Super Bowl.

RAG ARM RELIVERS SHOULD NOT SPEAK

Who the fuck is Brian Bruney and who gave him permission to speak? How about waiting until you’ve done something in th ebig leagues besides hold Mariano Rivera’ wam up jacket before you open your pie hole about another player, especially a guy who could pitch better with his left arm than you do with your right. Bruney is still an understudy and he has the brass balls to comment on Frankie Rodriguez a bona fide All Star reliever. I like how Frankie handled it when he said if Bruney had something to say then when the Highlander’s come to $iti Field say it to his face. Yeah , like that will ever happen Bruney will probley find a way to go back to his favorite spot the DL. Now go help A J Burnett make whip cream pies douche bag!

I should thank Brunet and the Highlanders though because with all the injuries and bad play of late my enthusiasm is running a bit low but with the win yesterday and Bruney’s big mouth and the team rallying around Castillo and David Wright kicking ass, I’m one stoke Mets fan and from reading stories n the fish wraps this morning a win today with Johan and the Mets could just become the darlings of New York.

As I type this checking out Twitter, David Lennon reports that Frankie Rodriguez just went after Brian Bruney to give him an ass kicking Now we got something here. With Johan pitching could we see a bench clearer?

“DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM” I’M JEFFEY SKILL SETS DAMN IT

Busy busy day as we have our  Christmas Party today at work so I’m knocking out something quick  as the Salsa music will be full blast soon  but remember tonight at 9PM its’ Pro Baseball Central with myself and Joe McDonald and we have plenty to talk about in the world of Mets especially that it looks like I’m not the only who has question the Skill Sets cash flow troubles as Jeffey had to answer a ton of questions yesterday as the Mets were showing off their latest acquisition Frankie Rodriguez.

 

I love this quote from Prince Jeffey about the cash on hand and whether the Skill Sets are broke:

 

["How is that possible? We have other money. Just because you guys don't know how much money we have, we have other money and other funds outside of (the Mets).

 

"It's called diversification."]

 

So according to Jeffey, losing a half billion ain’t shit as long as the new ballpark has turnstiles and we Mets fans line up for tickets the Skill Sets will still be farting through silk. Now the follow up question should have been “Do you have enough coin to improve your team”? Ok big mouth put up or shut up. I’ve come to grips that Manny will not be wearing a Mets uni but the big need is two starting pitchers so I expect to see a press conference soon to announce the signing of Derek Lowe. If it takes 4yr/60-65 mil then do it! Then get Randy Wolf for the 5th starter spot and I swear I’ll lay off my ball breaking ways for at least a week. In fact I’ll volunteer to run a 50/50 raffle at all homes games to raise more capital.

 

Meet the challenge Jeffey, prove to me that you can walk the walk!!!!!!

 

Again tonight at 9PM PRO BASEBALL CENTRAL will be live so join us and call in (646) 595-4462
