  1. YeOldeJacob and the 2011 Cincinnati Reds, Part 1; 4/3 vs. Brewers

    by , 3rd April 2011 at 09:31 PM (Pop-Pop in the Attic: in 3D)
    With the Reds finally competitive again, and being a team with the distinct potential of blossoming into a dynasty resembling the mid-70s Big Red Machine (call it a stretch, but this team has what it takes), I’m going to be at Great American Ballpark much more often than I ever have been (I’m shooting for 10 games, which is a decent number for someone well outside the Cincinnati area). As such, I have decided to make my trips to GABP (and maybe even a trip to see the Reds at Wrigley Field) a ...
  2. Why the Super Bowl hate is both illogical and stupid

    It's one day out of the year. One day. That's it.

    I've yet to hear one good reason to despise the Super Bowl. "I hate sports." is not a good reason. "It's just men rolling around on the ground." is not a good reason.

    It comes from the bullshit "Jocks aren't smart." point that is 100% wrong.

    Anyone who pays attention to a football game realizes there is intense strategy and thinking on the fly. Like a chess game, but with ...
  3. The Atlanta Falcons are not "The best team no one is talking about."

    Especially since, you know, once the media starts collectively referring to them as "The best team no one is talking about.", that means everyone is now talking about them.

    I may be biased as a fan, but I watch a lot of national football commentary/analysis shows, and I'll tell you who the best team no one is talking about is; the Kansas City Chiefs.

    I mean, you wouldn't know they have the #1 rushing attack, a wide receiver with the most TDs in the league, ...
  4. Red Sox fans need to realize the Yankees aren't the only "evil empire" in MLB

    by , 9th December 2010 at 06:17 PM (Pop-Pop in the Attic: in 3D)
    Boston is one too.

    They buy their team instead of growing and developing one.

    They are almost always the team in a bidding war with the Yankees.

    The Yankees v. Red Sox rivalry is like the Coke v. Pepsi rivalry... they may be aesthetically different, and they may taste a little different, but they both have a shit-load of money and are sweetened with bullshit fake sugar... as for the sodas sweetened with real sugar? They're just too genuine to capture ...
  5. YeOldeJacob rants about racism. Namely; what *isn't* racism.

    by , 20th November 2010 at 11:13 PM (Pop-Pop in the Attic: in 3D)
    Racism, noun; a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

    Meaning? Racism requires intent.

    Recently, I was called a racist (by a white dude) for being a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs (dude wasn't even a sports fan, just kept up to date with sports teams' iconography, I guess). Why? Because they "perpetuate Native American stereotypes".
