From The Bleachers 6.02.11

As the end of the week approaches, a pair of OWS contributors banter about some of the important (and not so important) news items of the week.

We need a sports blog ‘misery index‘.

…Canucks forward Alex Burrows biting Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron.

I like his strategy because it must be hard to get any leverage behind a punch while wobbling around on skates. My only concern, though, is that while biting someone during a hockey fight, what if your tongue got stuck to the other player’s helmet a la A Christmas Story? As you may have guessed, my knowledge of hockey consists of two parts: 1) it takes place on slippery ice and 2) ice is cold.

Eh. whatever. Who hasn’t bit someone during a fight? It happens. Actually, does it count if Burrows doesn’t have teeth? Because all hockey players doesn’t have teeth, right? I like how he wasn’t suspended — Tyson got a raw deal, man.

OWS: From The Bleachers 12.23.10

As the end of the week approaches, a pair of OWS contributors banter about some of the important (and not so important) news items of the week. Neither wants to smell Michelle Ryan’s feet. We call this post “From the Bleachers”.

…if adding music to NFL broadcasts is a bad idea:

Yeah, I’d say it’s a bit much. Isn’t this kind of like when you go to an upscale restaurant and they bring you out an amazing cut of prime rib, except they drown it with a fire hose of mushroom sauce and bury it with shards of carrots and celery? Steak’s pretty good on its own, you don’t need to dress it up like a french whore to pique my interest. I was already going to order it.

When you first told me about this, I really had no idea what it exactly entailed. This is just bizarre. It’s like I’m watching Seahawks – 49ers but I have Pirates of the Caribbean and Drumline streaming on my computer in the same room. Also, it is clearly messing with Brian Billick’s color commentary game. Or is he just that bad all the time?

Tyson Talks Pigeon Racing On Larry King Live

King: …you can’t make money with this…

Tyson: Yes, you can.

King: How do you make money in pigeon racing?

Tyson: Why? It’s one of the biggest sports in the world. Everyone does that.

King: This is a new world to me.

Tyson: No, this world has been since before Christ…

Believe it or not; we don’t have a pigeon racing category on here. I had to file this under Boxing for now. I might have to add pigeon racing, since it is one of the biggest sports in the world.
