Weekend Wrap-Up

29 Dec

Christmas time has passed and we get ready to ring in the New Year (look for my 2009 recap coming this week, as well as one more podcast), but we still need to recap what happened over the holiday weekend. My first recap: I must have been bad this year because I did not get what I wanted this year, Lebron to be embarassed on Christmas day (see more about that below).

Let’s get to the recap.


1. Bowl season is in full swing as we had five games over the four day weekend.  What bowls do you ask, oh well, the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, the Little Caesar’s Bowl, the Meineke Car Care Bowl, the Emarald Bowl, and the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowls.  There is no joke needed here.

2.Urban Meyer resigned over the weekend due to medical reasons, then he said that he was going to take an indefinite leave of abscence, with the intent to hopefully coach his team at the start of the 2010 season.  Everyone here at the Knuckle Sandwich blog (me) really hopes that Coach Meyer can return to good health, and can come back to the job that he loves, but we have a tip for you, start praying to Tim Tebow.  He seems to know Jesus.


1. And then there were none.  The Colts lost to the New York Jets 29-15, but don’t blame Peyton Manning, because he was pulled from the game in third quarter so he could get “rest” for the playoffs.  I mean as much as I enjoy watching Curtis Painter get a ton of snaps, keep your guys in there Caldwell.  Stop being a pussy.  Too much?

2.  The AFC playoff picture is about as easy to figure out as my tax return, and I file as an actor, so I have a ton of W-2’s and a bunch of shit that I write off.  There are only four teams set, and there are seven teams that are still in the hunt for a spot, two of which are currently below .500.  Just look at this nonsense:

AFC Playoff Picture


1. The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Christmas Day, and not only did they lose, but they refused to show up, in probably the biggest game of their season so far.  Then that same night, Ron Artest, while playing Santa Claus fell down a flight of stairs and suffered a concussion.  Not joking.  He seriously did that.  Then the fans, fed up with the Lakers performance, did this:

2. The other LA team (sorry for the all LA news, but they had the biggest weekends), the Clippers pulled a huge upset of the Boston Celtics, in probably what is going to go down as the best plays of the season.  Let me make a prediction and say that the Clippers go on to lose their next four games, because they never seem to be able to build on any momentum.  It’s a pretty awesome play though, and Ralph Lawler, the Clippers announcer, almost has a stroke:


1. West Virgina looks to be pretty good.  They had a big win over Seton Hall in overtime, and they beat Ole Miss as well.  The only problem I have with this, is I still hate Bob Huggins.  Seriously, I think I hate him as much as I hate Nick Saban.  I’m sorry, but I just can’t over the fact that he left Kansas State after one season to go coach at West Virginia.  K-State gave you a chance, after you had a major drinking problem, and you just slapped them in the face.  Sorry, that’s just how I feel.

2. Mike Gerrity.  The USC point guard has had a ridiculous NCAA journey.  He started at Pepperdine, then transferred to UNC-Charlotte, then transferred again to USC.  He has sat out two full years, and has only played three full years.  In four games with USC he has lead the team in scoring, and they have won all four games.  Why is it important?  Because I coached the kid for three straight summers at Chapman University when he was at Junior High.  That’s right, I wasn’t always a comic, but I do like to think that I had a hand in making him the player he is.  I mean, check out some of my basketball skills:
