Kind of redundant to say "depressed in Detroit" but you get it

It’s like someone took a vacuum to Jack White’s soul. No emotion, no life, cream cheese white in the middle of July. He’s like a dried up thing of chapstick you find in your couch from last winter. I know that doesn’t make a ton of sense but at the same time it totally does.

 

 

 

Almost a smile here but who wouldn’t smile when they’re hanging with Omar Vizquel, guys the man.

(Source) On Friday’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith made remarks that spawned controversy in the wake of the NFL’s decision to suspend Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice for two games following charges of assaulting his then fiancée, now wife, a few months ago.This morning on the show, Smith offered an apology and host Cari Champion also shared her thoughts on the matter (video above).

The following is ESPN’s statement on the matter:“We will continue to have constructive dialogue on this important topic. Stephen’s comments last Friday do not reflect our company’s point of view. As his apology demonstrates, he recognizes his mistakes and has a deeper appreciation of our company values.”

UPDATE – Tuesday, July 29, 2014, 4:35 p.m. ET: “ESPN announced today that Stephen A. Smith will not appear on First Take or ESPN Radio for the next week. He will return to ESPN next Wednesday.”

 

 

 

 

And now the question begs. If Stephen A. Smith gets suspended from a show no normal human being watches in the first place does it make a sound? Guess we’ll find out.

 

 

Can Broussard fill in? I miss the days when it was just making fun of Broussard and his Sources. Golden Age of ESPN, aka 2 weeks ago.

Dad Puts Two Automatic Trash Cans Together To Create An Infinity Loop Of Opening Trash Cans And Loses His Mind With Joy

    You know what, this is stupid, I’ll admit it. But this dad laughing and loving the fact that he duped his two trash cans into popping open for the rest of time put a smile on my face. I can’t help it, it just did. It’s the little things in life, and sometimes [...]

You know what, this is stupid, I’ll admit it. But this dad laughing and loving the fact that he duped his two trash cans into popping open for the rest of time put a smile on my face. I can’t help it, it just did. It’s the little things in life, and sometimes the little things are tricking a couple of automatic trash cans into opening forever.

Cubs Mailbag – Carl and Chief on WGN Radio, Sosa HOF, Rizzo, and Potential Cub Arms

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Arizona Diamondbacks

 

 

 

I put in a request last night on twitter (@barstoolcarl) for some mailbag questions and got some pretty good stuff. So thanks to those who contributed, and depending on how this is received I could be interested in expanding this to an MLB mailbag and try and make it a weekly thing around here. On to the mailbag.

#1

radio

Yes. Chief and I went on WGN (87.7 The Game) yesterday with our good friend Sam Panayotovich (pa-knee-ah-na-vitch). Big Cat was on air with them Saturday too, so I think it’s safe to say Barstool kind of has it’s own radio station now, or something like that. Wouldn’t be surprised if we put in a few desks there and turned Tribune Tower into our new home office. In any event, here’s our segment from yesterday. We cover the Cubs, Chief’s blossoming love life, creepy encounters with stoolies and general for-the-common-man-by-the-common-man stuff.

 

Sam with Carl, Chief July 27th (WGWG-LP 87.7 The Game)

 

 

#2

Sosa

Sosa doesn’t stand a chance. Baseball writers are absolutely hell bent on maintaining the Hall’s vague and poorly conceived image of purity – as if the Hall isn’t already littered with alcoholics, drug users, wife beaters, etc. And maintaining that image means setting an example for all future players. Nevermind that writers blackballing steroid users now are the same guys that stayed employed for no other reason than the blatant steroid use that made baseball relevant again. It’s just your textbook revisionist history lesson. And while we’re on the subject, writers need to cool it with the “How do I explain this to my kids?” bullshit. Hey I have an idea. Why don’t you tell them the truth – it was fucking awesome and everybody loved it.

 

In regards to Sosa deserving to get in (and steroid usage aside), I think he falls short. Sosa did two things very well – crush homeruns and be a complete fuckhead. That’s really it. And unfortunately for Sosa, there’s too much available information now to elect a player on homeruns alone. Yes, 612 is a lot of Yabos. But he hit over .300 just 3 times in 18 years, struck out nearly 250% more often than he walked, championed the 2003 NLCS collapse, got busted with a corked bat, finished in the top 10 in AVG and/or OBP just once, and has a career WAR comparable to Bobby Bonds, Kenny Lofton and Jim Edmonds. There’s too many areas for criticism for him to overcome his overwhelmingly negative image. Mix it all together and I say he doesn’t deserve it, which really doesn’t matter because there’s a ZERO percent chance he gets in anyways.

John Clayton Showing Up To Camp With That Sick Ass Flow

    John Clayton may honestly be the most interesting looking man in the world. Combover up top, balding on the sides, beautiful shimmering grey mullet in the back. I know this is going to sound crazy but I think I would kill to have his hair. Conversation topic for days (2 minutes tops)   [...]

John Clayton may honestly be the most interesting looking man in the world. Combover up top, balding on the sides, beautiful shimmering grey mullet in the back. I know this is going to sound crazy but I think I would kill to have his hair. Conversation topic for days (2 minutes tops)

 

 

 

 

And for anyone who is thinking “slow day at the stool”. I know. You don’t think I know? When I’m talking myself into wanting John Clayton’s hair I know that the internet sucks today. I have enough self awareness to connect those dots.
