From time to time, I've posted sports-themed posts on my other blogs, DiscConnected (music reviews and news) or Back In The USSR (political).

I decided to see if I could give ESPN 8 (The Ocho) a run for their money and started this blog.

I lifted the title from John DeBella's Philadelphia morning radio show back in the eighties.

Last month, it was soccer gone wild in Brazil, when, after an argument over a red card, the incident escalated into the stabbing of a player and the dismemberment of a referee in an amateur game.

It all started when the referee expelled the player from an amateur soccer game. 

The two got into a fist fight, then the referee took out a knife and stabbed the player, who died on his way to the hospital.

After the ref fatally stabbed the player, fans responded with his beating, stoning, murder and dissection, culminating with decapitating Silva and leaving his head on a stake in the middle of the field.

I guess there can be only one…

This week, an Australian man attending an Oklahoma college on a baseball scholarship was shot and killed in what police described Monday as a random act of violence by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill someone for the fun of it.

If that is not proof that baseball needs more excitement, I don’t know what is.

Instead of punishing A-Rod, I say let’s bring back Barry Bonds and start doling out the ‘roids. 

Get these guys bigger and more aggressive. Give the people what they want!

Those Brazillian soccer fans know how to party!

From now on, when a pitcher hits a batter with a pitch, knock him out! 

And if the batter can still stand-he’s got a bat, go to town on the guy! After all, he's tagging you with that ball because he thinks you are feeble.

In football, when a kicker misses an extra point…well what they did on the field in Brazil would certainly serve as a long overdue notice to all those prima-donna kickers. 

All they have to do is kick a frickin’ ball!

Maybe seeing a kicker's head on the uprights would be a little incentive...

The NFL is spending all this time trying to make football less violent.


Soccer is the NUMBER ONE sport in the world!

Because they DECAPITATE THE REFEREES! That is must-see TV!

We’re following the world example with Marxism, socialized medicine, and a failing economy….when are we going to get in line with our sports?

Man up, America! Jacked up is going to take on a whole new meaning!
