In True LeBron Fashion, He’s Still a “Game Time Decision” for Tonight’s Season Opener

Bleacher Report – Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James is officially listed as a game-time decision for Tuesday’s home matchup with the Boston Celtics at Quicken Loans Arena due to an ankle injury. Dave McMenamin of ESPN noted James participated in the Cavs’ morning shootaround session, but the team didn’t immediately announce whether he would play in the season-opening contest.

It wouldn’t be the NBA without everyone catering to LeBron’s every whim. Dude’s always gotta make the story about him. Legit 8 hours before the game and he doesn’t know if he can play?

Bullshit. If he has a competitive bone in his body there’s zero chance he misses this game.

He just wants to control the story, he doesn’t want all the headlines to be about Kyrie Irving coming back to Cleveland. LeBron wants it to be about LeBron. Not “the kid.”

RIP John Dunsworth aka Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Boys

TMZ -“Trailer Park Boys” actor John F. Dunsworth — who played Jim Lahey on the show — has died. Dunsworth’s daughter told a Canadian outlet her father died after a brief and unexpected illness. John was a part of the show’s original cast, and played a former cop-turned-security supervisor at Sunnyvale Trailer Park.
He broke into show biz as a casting director in the late ’80s before making it big on the Canadian comedy. “Trailer Park Boys” has been on air for 11 seasons.
Dunsworth was 71.

If you’re anything like me, and if you read this blog even semi-regularly, then you’re likely a fan of the Canadian TV show turned Netflix staple, Trailer Park Boys. Stumbled onto this show my senior year of college and never looked back. An absurd show that has no business being as funny as it is for as long as it has. Granted I didn’t find it on Netflix until like 2010, its been on TV since 2001! Julian, Ricky, Bubbles, Randy, J-Rock; all great characters, but they pale in comparison to the always hilarious (and loaded) Jim Lahey. The alcoholic Sunnyvale trailer park supervisor was one of the funniest characters on TV that I still quote on the regular. May shithawks lead you in, Mr. Lahey. RIP.

#RushHourRap: Logic – Alright

Logic only recently landed in the public eye with his suicide prevention radio hit “1-800-273-8255” that he dropped earlier this year. Before that though he had two excellent albums in Bobby Tarantino (2016) and The Incredible True Story (2015) and before that of course was his fire flames debut studio album, Under Pressure (2014). Off that album is one of his best records to date, “Alright” ft. Big Sean.

If you still aren’t fucking with Logic, get on board now because this guy is going to blow up. Not to mention he just seems like a genuinely down to earth guy. Check out this video of Logic rapping toe to toe with a diehard fan of his on stage, who just also happens to be a parapalegic. Good guy Logic.

Tom Brady Now Holds the Record for Most Wins in NFL History

With his 187th regular season win, Tom Brady passed Peyton Manning and Brett Favre to become the NFL’s All-Time wins leader.

Normally after years of deep playoff runs I wouldn’t take too much solace in regular season records, but with 5 Super Bowls on top of that its more than acceptable to stop and smell the roses on this one. Tom Brady, by just about every statistical metric, has no equals.

Thats right, this guy:

went from the 199th overall pick to the all-time winningest player in NFL history. The goddamn GOAT. Not too bad.

Over the years theres been plenty of stories about Tom Brady’s rise and all the work he’s put in, but its hard to beat the gigantic Fuck You to the 6 QB’s taken ahead of Tom Brady that was The Brady 6.

And why is Tom Brady the Greatest Of All Time? This is why.

Henry Owens Still Can’t Throw a Strike: Should Probably Be On Suicide Watch

Seriously, someone better take away Henry Owens’ shoelaces and bedsheets.

“CONTROL REMAINS ISSUE FOR OWENS IN AFL
Henry Owens made his first start for the Peoria Javelinas of the Arizona Fall League on Thursday, walking five and allowing four runs on two hits in just an inning of work. The left-hander issued 115 free passes in 126 innings in the minors this year.”

This guy just cannot get the ball over the plate. Every time I hear a story about him its about how many batters he walked. Honestly feel bad for the guy who clearly has some sort of mental block. Someone please get this guy to a sports psychologist before he just burns the ballpark down.

For a player that was once an untouchable prospect its crazy that now he can’t get through two innings of fall ball without walking a half dozen guys. He does seem to be trying out some new mechanics though dropping down to more of a sidearm release point, so maybe that helps, maybe not, but the guy has to try anything and everything to just get the ball over the plate at this point.

In his last 3 seasons in the minors (leaving his MLB experience out because its limited) his walks have gone from 56 in 122 IP, to 81 in 137 IP, to 115 in 126 IP. Meanwhile the League average in 2017 for Walks per 9 IP (BB9) was 3.2. Owens comes in at a cool 4.9 BB9 career average, but has only gotten worse over the past 3 years with his BB9 going from 4.1 in 2015 to 5.3 in 2016 and 8.2 in 2017 (minor league stats).

Good Guy Red Sox Pitcher Joe Kelly Dresses Up as Green Lantern and Visits Sick Kids in the Hospital

The Red Sox got their dicks kicked in by the Astros in the ALDS, but take a quick look at these pics below to put that into perspective. It sucks the Sox lost, but at least we still have feel good stories like Joe Kelley making a sick kid’s day dressing up as Green Lantern. Bravo, Joe.

X-Men Has a New Horror Movie Coming Out and I Am ALL IN

What have we here? Aside from Deadpool, this is the first real X-Men spinoff/side movie, however you want to phrase it, to really go away from the core characters. Not to mention they seemingly have decided to go a completely new route with the horror movie feel this trailer’s giving off.

I am ALL IN. The X-Men movies in general have always been criminally underrated. X2 is really the only one I remember, and I guess Logan as well, that got any love from people.

The original legit started the whole comic book movie era that we’re still living in today. The first Spiderman with Tobey didn’t even come out for another 2 years after X-Men.

There is some hot garbage in there of course like the clusterfuck that was X-Men: The Last Stand, but this franchise has always been the one thats not afraid of trying new directions. I mean how many other films can take their core characters, and then make prequels about them in the 1960s using completely different actors and have it work? (X-Men: First Class)

And then take that already convoluted idea, and send them back in time? Because time travel always makes things easier to understand. (X-Men: Days of Future Past)

But hey it worked, which is why I’m down with X-Men dipping their toes into the horror genre. Plus you got miniature Arya Stark in there so sign me up.
