Wiffleball Weekend Begins Now…

Posted in Other on July 15, 2011 by EAST SIDE RYNO

Since the 5BS staff will be upstate in Sullivan County (the land of no cell phone nor internet service) for the weekend, there will be no posts until Monday. So while we are living it up playing some intense wiffle ball games, make sure to watch the Yanks take on the Jays and the Metropolitans host the Phillies. Have a great weekend everyone.

Here is a prime example of sammywestside (aka “Jeff Weaver”) on a wiffleball mound:

Jo Bein’ Jo!

This is why Jo is great. Just when the NBA starts advertising why it’s inappropriate to use anti-gay slurs, Joakim just goes out and calls a dude a “f****t.” Just another classic example of why you never fuck with Joakim. He’s a loose cannon. You never know what he’s going to say or do next. During a press conference, he might call out Cleveland as being the worst city on the planet or he might start break into a free-style dance. You never know. So in this case with Jo’s antigay slurs, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Joakim just reacts to the situation.

To defend Jo, the fan apparently said some horrific comments to him. If a fan ever said the wrong thing to me, who knows if I would’ve let my emotions get the best of me? Maybe I would’ve pulled a Ron Artest? Also in defense of Joakim, he had no idea the camera was on him. I’m pretty sure if he knew the camera’s were rolling, he would’ve stayed quiet. Overall, it’s very unfortunate that Noah was filmed saying this antigay slur and was fined $50,000 by the league. Let’s hope Noah doesn’t pick up two fouls in the first five minutes of the game so Chicago can bounce back against Miami in Game 4.

Pens-Caps 24/7 on HBO – Watch It Now!

Posted in Other on December 17, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

Best show on television right now. For hockey fans, it allows us to see what happens behind the scenes of a hockey team on and off the ice. But even if you hate hockey, this is a thoroughly entertaining show. The two coaches are hilarious and it’s interesting to watch the day in the life of a professional sports franchise. Coach Bruce Boudreau of the Washington Capitals is out of his mind. He drops more f-bombs in one minute than Rex Ryan did in the entire season of “Hard Knocks.” So if you have HBO on Demand and have nothing to do today, watch this show. It’s a four part series that leads up to the Winter Classic on New Years’ Day.
