Pistons Prison Rape the Does
114-69 Wow is it possible they have quit on Coach Larry?
What a sorry excuse for an NBA team
Does Basketball, Yes It can get much worse.
A Place to Talk Wisconsin Sports and anything else we feel like talking about. No we won't put the Cubs game on the TV
114-69 Wow is it possible they have quit on Coach Larry?
Does anyone actually pay the MJS for their "Packer Insider" coverage?
Javon Walkerstopped short of demanding a trade like he did two years ago in Green Bay, but he suggested Monday that it might be best for everyone if the Denver Broncossent him packing.
"It's not that they don't want me here, but I just don't think it's the best fit for me," Walker said as he prepared to meet with coach Mike Shanahan for his exit interview.
A little older and wiser, though?
"Green Bay made me who I was for a team like this to want to bring me here," Walker said. "So, maybe it takes a team like that to go back."
It would have been nice to have actually gotten something for him, but I don't miss Javon Walker one bit. If Denver does try to move him, it'll be interesting to see if they get anything in return.
Those are the three games the Packers can host in in the their 2nd round play off game.
The Wisconsin Badgers Basketball team jumped back into both major polls barely but they are back in.
This system has been thinned out by promotions and trades, but I suspect they will recharge quickly.

Quite the Year in Wisconsin Sports.
Coach McCarthy: (Did the Chicago loss shake your team's confidence?) I'd like to say that it didn't affect our confidence. I think it punched us right in the mouth. It was a good wake-up call. The most important thing about a wake-up call is how you respond to it. I really liked the way our football team responded today. That's what you're looking for, a decisive win at home, great crowd, perfect day at Lambeau Field. It's an excellent way to finish a 13-3 season.
I turned off the game at half time last night, pretty sure of what was to come. To be honest, I was completely disinterested because I am utterly convinced the Patriots will not make it to the Super Bowl. I also thoroughly wanted them to win so that a playoff loss is that much more painful.
That is all I care about today with the Packers game, yes it would nice if they won to wash away the bad taste from last weeks game.
The Badgers finished the non conference part of the schedule with a 10-2 record and a 4 game winning streak.
We're at the end of the regular season, the 2nd-hardest week to pick as so many teams have nothing of significance to play for. Not good, considering I went an extra-chunky 4-11-1 last week to bring me right back where I started. As always, the lines are from Bodog, so they may or may not bear any semblance to what your stateside Man is offering you.

I for one am in a quandary I really hate that Dolphins team and their stupid bottles of Champaign. Normally I would be ecstatic that someone was going to match their achievement.
I finally took a break from COD4 last night and popped in a new game Mass Effect
Today the Badgers take on Texas down in Austin and the game in on ESPN2 so no BTN black out.
Face it the Milwaukee Does just plain suck, they stink on ice.
For anyone who does not get the Huge Tracts o Land joke we use here I thought I would help you out.
To be honest I do not put the blame for the Does woes on the Owner. Most of you know I am not a big fan of the Senator. But he has spent money on this team in the past and the current payroll is over 40 million.
So, I was doing some thinking on the Milwaukee Bucks. Mainly, because I was tired of talking about their individual games (I mean come on, that can get depressing.)
My favorite sports talk guy is JT the Brick, on Fox Sports Radio. Locally (MKE) you can hear him on WSSP 1250 from 9pm-1:00am. Pick a night when the Bucks aren't playing (local yokels on after every game) or an Admirals broadcast.
That question isn't what you think, so let me explain. The stats say that teams with a first round bye are overwhelmingly favored to advance to the championship games of their respective conference. We also know that teams that are playing their best football going into the playoffs tend to keep their momentum going. So, given that the Cowboys have been playing less than stellar football and are banged up, and the Packers have been showing some weaknesses that culminated in a miserable game against the Bears, I think we are going to see an upset in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs. My question to you is, not knowing any pairings yet, which team is more likely to be upset, the Packers or the Cowboys?
As I was watching Sunday's massacre by the Bears, I started to think about this team. I don't think Ted Thompson can be criticized too much for the team he has built, but that's not to say he cannot be criticized at all. Sunday was the first real bad weather game this team has had to play, and it was abundantly clear that they couldn't handle it. Bad weather can be an adverse opponent for any team, but some teams have to expect it. If you play in Buffalo, Cleveland, Denver, Chicago, or Green Bay, your team had better be able to handle it.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick is the most deserving candidate for the Coach of the Year award.
I have to be honest other than the Wisconsin game early New Years Day I might not watch one bowl game this year.
The NFL will be simulcasting the Pats-Giants Saturday night game on both CBS and NBC. The bad news is Bryant Gumbel will be doing the play-by-play.
I understand politics are verboten in the WSB...
Not a lot going on right now the Badgers do not play till next year ;) and the Packer game this Sunday is now meaningless. Who knows or cares when the Does play next. The Badgers do not play till Saturday.
Hey life has a way of always reminding me that sports are not the most important thing in my life.(Burst pipe last night and a beautiful indoor waterfall in my foyer quite the site to see at 2am but the plumber is already here and Xmas is saved.)
This game is one of those that you just toss in the trash bin without looking. It's a statistical outlier, and a meaningless data point.
I know there are a lot of Packers fans who will feel that way.
My first thought is I hope ESK's flight made it home with all this nasty ass weather.
It's Fucking Windy.
(I could never write head lines for the paper I am too long winded lol)
For a large part of last night it looked like Valpo might hand the Badgers another Kohl Center loss. It took a late charge by a Badger team that played like they were stoned most of the night.
Bucks Trimester Grades: At the end of the first "trimester" of this NBA season, the Bucks look like an improving team. This is mostly due to the improved play over the last week and a half of Yi Jianlian and Desmond Mason. Now, if the Bucks could only get better play out of some of their more prominent reserves, they could make a serious playoff push.Keep Yi on the floor and Charlie Villanueva on the bench and Milwaukee still has a chance at a decent season, especially if Bogut decides to bring his "A" game to every game.
Game Notes: Wisconsin leads the Big Ten in both scoring defense (52.5) and field goal percentage defense (.364). Both those figures rank among the top 15 nationally, with UW ranking third in scoring defense and 11th in field goal percentage defense.The big question this year continues to be which players emerge as scoring leaders for this team. Sophomore Guard Trevon Hughes (15.2) and Senior Big Man Brian Butch (13.3) are providing dependable points from the perimeter and paint. What is still needed is for someone with a strong intermediate game to fill in between those two players. The bar talk all season is that Junior Marcus Landry should be filling this role and Coach Bo says he is beginning to see Landry mature into this role.
Small steps forward for Landry: "First of all, I really like his progress,'' Ryan said.”I'm looking at him at (small forward) and (power forward), and he can always play (center) because he's been comfortable in the post in the past. He's pretty versatile, his outside shot has improved. ... I just think he's physically and mentally better. And I think he'll get better from now until the start of Big Ten (season) too. ... His upside between November and January, I think, is probably the highest on the team, because he's got to get comfortable with the (small forward) position. That's where we have to help him."
As I was driving through the Pea Soup Fog to go to gymnastics this dreary Saturday Morning I had a thought.
Valparaiso aka Valpo to the locals still calls their teams the Crusaders unlike the PC Care Bears of MU.

Since Willy Parker broke his fibula last night, we get to hear a bunch of Najeh Davenport poop jokes today. Najeh, by the way, is far more productive than Parker on a play by play basis. Still he's always stuck at #2 for some reason. Health has always been an issue for Davenport, but don't be surprised if he actually improves the Steeler offense.
I heard about this on the local news. So, for those of you who missed it, here's a link to make your own Jessica Simpson mask, as they are going to do in Charlotte, NC this weekend.
Over @ the JS blog by Tom Haudricourt, he has a post up about the signing of retired OF'r Gabe Kapler.
1. Gabe Gross RF
2. Craig Counsell SS
3. Joe Dillon 3B
4. Drew Anderson CF
5. Gabe Kapler LF
6. Eric Muson C
7. Vinny Rottino 2B
8. Mike Rivera 1B
That lineup card came courtesy of a commenter in the thread.
HT to Tracker from a previous comment thread...
Bank on these, as the drive to profitability continues:
When OSU plays LSU will you be backing the Big Ten school(assuming most of our readers are Wisconsin fans) or like me does your hatred of OSU prevent you from rooting for them no matter how good it would make the conference look.
And you thought his batting stance was funny. Here is the article, on point:
The Klements racing sausages will also suit up for the Dec. 29 performance. Counsell, who lives in nearby Whitefish Bay, Wis., will go through a dress rehearsal on Friday at the Milwaukee Ballet Studios.
According to the official billing, "audience members will be delighted as these 'rookie' and professional dancers join little Clara in her dream world filled with pirouetting fairies, marching toy soldiers and dancing teddy bears. Comedy will abound, and the laughs won't end until the final curtain falls."

Me or ESK tough call on that one.
Found this on You Tube and had to share with the bar...
I have fallen in love with the Met Opera Radio channel 085 on Sirius that and 080 Symphony Hall in the mornings then Margaritaville Radio 031 and 1st Wave 022 in the afternoons. The Springsteen and Sinatra channels are pretty kick ass also.
So far Gagne has been mum on the subject but the Brewers are expecting
some answers and some public comment from Gagne before it’s all over.
An added bummer for the Brewers, whose chairman of the board is
Commissioner Bud Selig’s daughter, is that
Gagne is probably the highest-profile player to be named who is in the
group of players who supposedly took drugs post-2004
Yes Chris is going off topic(I just went third person isn't that cool)but it is my bar and I will go off topic if I want to.
Grass is still green, water is still wet, Marquette has no football team and the Bucks Suck on an epic level.
I don't do the gambling thing these days, since the government decided that online gambling is more evil than gambling on Indian reservations, and Vegas/Atlantic, and at horse tracks, and in state sponsored lotteries which exploit poor people, however, when I glanced at the opening lines this week, the NY Giants were installed as 3 point favorites at Buffalo.
I usually don't do the recaps here, but I'm feeling pretty good after an 11-5 week (but a mere 1-1 on the over/unders). Who would've thought after my month of doom (Weeks 2-5, 21-35-4), I'd be above .500?
Jib made a comment below pretty much saying the Packers have to win this year, because it's the best chance they will have for years. It got me thinking...this is the first time in a few years that I wasn't looking forward to "next season" by this time, and I have no honest clue what the 2008 Packers will lose from this season.
The Pro Bowl selections came out today and the Packers only had 4 players who were named to the NFC team. Charles Woodson and Nick Barnett have the biggest legitimate gripes, followed by guys like Greg Jennings and Chad Clifton.
In this country, particularly when it comes to sports, we are obsessed with the apology. It has reached a certain level of absurdity. Well, when it comes to the Mitchell Report, I'd prefer the players named just keep their damned mouths shut because we are only going to get a limited amount of truth about it, anyway.
First example the Cowgirls have more players than the Pats.
They are Brett Favre, Al Harris, Aaron Kampman, and Donald Driver. If I heard correctly on Sirius NFL Radio, Favre, Harris, and Kampman are starters.
Brian Anderson took a moment from golfing to interview our new closer Eric Gange.
Here is the transcript. I think he did a nice job. This all stems from a show he did back in July where he called Madison the finest college city in the country. The segment went on for over an hour, if memory serves.
In the movie "The Natural" Roy Hobbes sucks whenever he's cavorting with his blond strumpet.
Cowboys safety Roy Williams got suspended for his horse collar tackle on Sunday. It seems he had already been warned twice.
I happened to have Chicago's 670 The Score on when I went to bed last night and to my pleasant suprise the bland Dan Patrick show was not on.
The US Marines are Great People. No doubt in my mind. That being said - some are also great Packer Fans.
Not content to wait outside Lambeau Field with pen and paper, the three Marine lance corporals simply Googled the Green Bay quarterback's signature, printed it and took the John Hancock to a tattoo artist in San Diego while they were on leave. Actually, Wissmueller organized it and talked Bannach and Stewart into getting the $50 tattoos in October.
"Two beers later, it was a great idea," said Bannach, 21, of Franklin.
Even in Iraq - they will have a reminder of the best QB in the NFL.
