More reasons to hate the Florida Marlins: Vuvuzela night

More reasons to hate the Florida Marlins: Vuvuzela night

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 19, 2010

Earlier this season the Florida Marlins gave baseball a hideous team song sung by Scott Staph Stapp. Now they're bringing in the one sound more annoying than Stapp's voice: Vuvuzelas. For Saturday night's interleague game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Marlins plan to give out 15,000 vuvuzelas. While other teams like the Yankees have kicked people out of the stadium for bringing the annoying World Cup noisemakers in, Florida is actually going to hand them out.That should be more than enough to guarantee the game not to be a sellout. Luckily the team claims that this will only be a one-night event. Sun Life stadium doesn't allow noisemakers like that brought it. And as the Marlins only rent the place out, they don't really have much of a say about what can and can't be brought into the park. (via ESPN)

Your Moment of Tebowness: His Tebow makes one young fan's day special

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 19, 2010

(Your Moment of Tebowness is SWRT's recurring feature on the cultural phenomenon that is His Tebowness. Everyone else is doing it, so why can't I?)  Tim Tebow met with Diego Lemos, a young fan who lost part of his leg in a bus accident in April at a camp held by fellow Bronco Daniel Graham. Lemos is an avid Tebow fan. So the experience is one that he's sure to treasure for years to come. (via 9NEWS.com)

Your  Ricky Stanzi

Your Ricky Stanzi "America, love it or leave it!" moment of the day starring the Man(zi) himself

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 19, 2010

Ricky Stanzi became an American legend on January 5, 2010 for two reasons. First, he led the Iowa Hawkeyes in a 24-14 Orange Bowl victory against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. And then (and most importantly) in an interview with FOX's Chris Myers he made the following comment that will forever put him in Our Nation's hearts. It took about six months, but a reporter for the Cedar Rapids Gazette asked Stanzi what led him to make such an audaciously patriotic response to an obviously "softball" question. And fortunately there was a camera there to record his telling of the story behind the story. Total awesomeness. And if you think that's cool, look at how Stanzi connects with fan at Hawkeye Day for Camp Courageous, described as "a  year-round recreational and respite care facility for children and adults with mental and physical disabilities, brain injuries, hearing and visual impairments, autism, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and special needs."  Double total awesomeness.

He Hate Me. "The Most Disliked People in Sports," according to Forbes. Somehow Lane Kiffin dodn't make it to the list, but the obvious suspects like Michael Vick and Al Davis did. (Forbes.com) The ratings are in. Thursday night's Game 7  was the most watched NBA Finals game since Michael Jordan and the Bulls won their sixth and final title in 1998. ABC probably thank Ron Artest's psychologist too. As well as that Kobe guy. (Warming Glow) Leonardo DiCaprio to play J. Edgar Hoover? In a Clint Eastwood directed biopic even? That's what the story is. No word if Leo wears a dress in the film. (Ain't It Cool News) An end of an era in Boston? It might just have been the end of the line for one Celtic legend last night...Brian Scalabrine (Ball Don't Lie)

Vols fan wants to humiliate Kiffin with billboard

Vols fan wants to humiliate Kiffin with billboard

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 18, 2010

(Cue the Carolina Liar) You would think Tennessee fans would have finally gotten over Lane Kiffin dumping the Vols for USC and were all set to start building heathen altars in their dens to Derek Dooley's hair (in front of the shrine to Peyton Manning). But along comes the NCAA and those pesky Reggie Bush related sanctions to USC to pull the scab off the wound. Well, did take a while, but some Kiffin-related silliness is starting to take place. It looks like a Vol Fan  wants to put up a billboard in Los Angeles mocking Kiffin and USC. Update on our humiliate on Operation Humiliate Kiffin. We're now doing a BILLBOARD. Perhaps on THE SUNSET STRIP! It's going to be about 7 grand. We have a guy who will match any donations we get by the end of today.. Here's a look at what the billboard might look like:  Not quite original and probably quite delusional as well. (via Loser With Socks, The Edge on Tony Basilo.com)

Golden State Warriors go back to the future with new logo and unis

Golden State Warriors go back to the future with new logo and unis

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 17, 2010

Remember that line in U2's "God Part II" where Bono sings "You glorify the past when the future dries up?" Well, the Golden State Warriors are testing that theory out with their new logo and jersey. The logo recreates the classic "The City" logo with the Golden Gate Bridge, replacing it with the under-construction Eastern Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. It's also boring as crap. The old "City" logo may be popular with some GSW fans, but it was kind of boring and gaudy at the same time. While the return to blue and gold it welcome, it would have been better to go with something a little more modern. Or if going retro absolutely positively  had to be a priority, Golden State should have gone with something closer to the unis of the "Run TMC" days. Which were a lot cooler in their own conservative sort of way. That was sweet looking. Maybe the fact GWS doesn't go back to something closer to this has to do with their giving Mullin the boot last year in his GM role.  Too bad. The uni looked way better than  the "City" version. It had a classic, but not dated look. (visa SLAM Online)

Mexico defeats France. It's Cinco de Mayo all over again!

Mexico defeats France. It's Cinco de Mayo all over again!

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 17, 2010

On May 5, 1862, the Mexican Army  defeated the French forces of Napoleon III in the Battle of Puebla. Today it is used as an excuse to get drunk celebrated as Cinco de Mayo. Now, on July 17, 2010. Mexico punks the French again. This time at the World Cup. Mexico's soccer team defeated their French counterparts, all but ending France's dreams of reaching the World Cup championship game. Mexicans will be celebrating this as a huge victory today. So it pretty much means that Americans should do so as well. With a little push, Diecisiete de Junio could be as huge as Cinco de Mayo. Party on! (via Yahoo! Sports)

Yes, there is a conference expansion drinking game. And not surprisingly, a Georgia Bulldog blogger invented it. (Dawg Sports) "Things That Will Get Charlie Sheen Killed in Jail." Like being Charlie Sheen isn't enough? (UPROXX) (By the way, I wonder if Charlie ever saw brother Emilio Estevez in In the Custody of Strangers?) Dangling Chads. The New York Yankees have a disproportionate number of Chads on the roster. You mean that the Yankees having a disproportionate number of anything is really a shock? (Walkoff Walk) Feds raid an Atlanta BBQ joint. They had a tip the place was using a recipe straight out of Fried Green Tomatoes. That's not true, but it'd be awesome (in an admittedly disturbing sort of way). (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) Infant pandas are fugly. But not as fugly as Real World dorks wearing panda hats.

Expansion silliness: Jerry Jones wants alma mater Arkansas in the Big 12

Expansion silliness: Jerry Jones wants alma mater Arkansas in the Big 12

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 17, 2010

Just when the dust is settling over the Big 12 non-implosion, Jerry Jones has to come around and kick some more up. Jerrah wants the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Big 12, and back in its traditional role as another of Texas' lapdogs. And he wants to bring in Notre Dame as well. It seems that being in the SEC isn't good enough anymore for Jerrah's beloved Razorbacks. Or maybe he's been counting the money he'd lose with a ten member Big 12, and no Big 12 Championship in The Heathen Temple to His Avarice Cowboys Stadium. It may actually be more of a case of the later than of the former. The Razorbacks may just be the most convenient (and closest to the heart) means to an end.  While it's hard to say that Jerry Jones will succeed in his latest scheme, it's hard to say that he won't, either. At least not in some form or another. He might not succeed in getting his alma mater in the Big 12. He might be able to twist the arms of Dan Bebe and whoever he needs to in Texas to get a couple of teams to replace Nebraska and Colorado.   (via SB Nation)

Your Moment of Tebowness: Tebow gets bronzed via statue at The Swamp

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 16, 2010

(Your Moment of Tebowness is SWRT's recurring feature on the cultural phenomenon that is His Tebowness. Everyone else is doing it, so why can't I?) Having Tim Tebow's "Promise" speech engraved a plaque in front of the Heavener Football Complex apparently wasn't enough for Florida. The UF athletic association has given approval for a bronze statue of Tim Tebow to be installed outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The Bronze likeness of His Tebowness will be joined by statues of fellow Gator Heisman Trophy winners Steve Spurrier and Danny Wuerffel. They will all be paid for through private pledges. Apparently the association didn't want to people to think that they were singling Tebow out for his achievements at Florida. But we know better than that, don't we? The Spurrier and Wuerffel statues will be shown passing the football, while His Tebowness' statue will be carrying the football. But honestly,  I was kind of hoping that this is the image it will be based on: It just screams Tebowness, doesn't it? (via EDSBS,  The Chalkboard, The Gainesville Sun )

Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Looking back at Ramblin' Wreck's wreck and other notes

By Juan Cena in SWRT on June 16, 2010

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news) Remembering the Ramblin' Wreck's wreck. Recalling the anniversary of the accident where the Ramblin' Wreck was damaged while being transported to a wedding in Savannah, of all things, and the efforts  to repair it. (From the Rumble Seat) Former USC linebacker Jarvis Jones transfers to UGA. Reports say this has to do with USC refusing to clear him for spring practice after a neck injury than with those pesky NCAA sanctions. It's a story that's almost believable. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) Auburn deserves 2004 Championship title. Auburn and its supporters should really be more focused on winning the 2010 BCS instead of living in the past. (al.com) More silly SEC expansion rumors. As usual, the voices in your head don't count as reliable sources. (Loser With Socks) Les Miles vs. FOX News' Shepard Smith.
