Shout out of the Week

Posted in Shout Out of the Week on September 27, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

THURSDAY NIGHT TELEVISION…with Sunday night in a close second. What’s better than sitting on the couch, knowing that it’s the fuck’n weekend while watching awesome shows? Think about it: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Jersey Shore, The League, and The Office. And let’s not forget the occasional Thursday Night Football game. It’s kind of sad that it’s Monday and I’m already counting down the days till Thursday night.

Getting Closer to October

Posted in Yankees on September 27, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

Wacky game last night. Mariano blows another save, but the Yanks manage to snap their four-game losing streak. This hasn’t been the best September for the Bombers, but I’m still not worried. It’s been a great season so far and the Yanks have a tendency to struggle at the end of the season, especially when they’re guaranteed a playoff birth. Look at the ’98 and 2000 seasons. Even though the Yanks had the most wins in American League history in 1998, their September was abysmal. In 2000, the Yankees at one point lost 14 of 17 games. What happened during October in both of those seasons? Championships. As long as the Yankees come prepared for the playoffs, I have no problem with their lackluster performances. I’m sure anyone would take a strong October over a strong September any day.

Running Out Of Patience

Posted in Giants on September 27, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

This is getting embarrassing. Losing to the Colts on the road is one thing. But losing at home to the Titans is a completely different story. This should’ve been an easy victory. Instead, the Titans destroyed the GMen. I can go on forever talking about the shitty mistakes on both sides of the ball – Eli’s poor decisions, Bradshaw’s fumbles, the entire O-Line, and 11 penalties (5 personal fouls).

Five personal fouls – are you kidding me?? This tells me how undisciplined our team is. I blame this entirely on the coaches. What happened to Coughlin being a tyrant? One of the reasons the Giants hired him was to keep all the players in line. Now this team is playing and acting like they haven’t practiced all week. They’ve been completely unprepared the past two weeks. The defensive seems to be responding to Fewell better than they did Sheridan, but the results have remained the same. At least Coughlin knows that if the Giants miss the postseason this year, he will be fired. I know my job isn’t on the line. So if he wants to continue to bring out unprepared teams week in and week out, be my guest. Just pack your bags and get out of New York for good once the season is over.

Even though the Giants have been horrific the past two weeks, they are still right in the mix in the NFC east. The Cowboys, Redskins, and Giants all are sitting at 1-2 with Philly leading the division at 2-1. I feel like a broken record saying this, but the Giants can still turn this around. I’m going to go ahead and say next Sunday’s game against the Bears is a must-win. If the Giants go 1-3, they won’t recover. So they better get it right this week. If not, I hope the GMen are prepared to get run out of town completely.  All of them.
