I felt the need to simplify things so I dropped the postseason from my blog title and from here on out my blog will be known as the Rockpile Rant.
Also, I’m not going to stress myself out looking for baseball tidbits to blog about during the post season.
While I’m waiting for spring training, I will be blogging about anything and everything. Some baseball, some basketball, current events and everyday crap.
So I thought it appropriate to start things off with a fart story. Gotta love toilet humor.
Can you believe this?
9/28/08 DUDE FARTS ON POLICE
A West Virginia man who police said passed gas and fanned it toward a patrolman has been charged with battery on a police officer.
Jose A. Cruz, 34, of Clarksburg, was pulled over early Tuesday for driving without headlights, police said. According to the criminal complaint, Cruz smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and failed three field sobriety tests before he was handcuffed and taken to a police station for a breathalyzer test.
As Patrolman T.E. Parsons prepared the machine, Cruz scooted his chair toward Parsons, lifted his leg and “passed gas loudly,” the complaint said. Cruz, according to complaint, then fanned the gas toward the officer.
“The gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature with Patrolman Parsons,” the complaint alleged. He was also charged with driving under the influence, driving without headlights and two counts of obstruction.
Cruz acknowledged passing gas, but said he didn’t move his chair toward the officer nor aim gas at the patrolman. He said he had an upset stomach at the time, but police denied his request to go to the bathroom when he first arrived at the station. “I couldn’t hold it no more,” he said.
He also denied being drunk and uncooperative as the police complaint alleged. He added he was upset at being prepared for a breathalyzer test while having an asthma attack.
The police statement said he later resisted being secured for a trip to a hospital that he requested for asthma treatment.
Cruz said the officers thought the gas incident was funny when it happened and laughed about it with him.
I wonder if he had visited taco bell to get that free World Series taco??
I thought this was a cool snaggin T-Shirt.
Tomorrow is the Election and I am still undecided. I’m not sure I believe all the Obama hype. Plus how many brotha’s do you know that can’t dance.
Do you think McCain will make four years?
I’m not sure I want Peggy Hill running the country
Do you?? Scary. I have never felt this confused. Usually by this point I have a candidate that I’m behind.
This election…Not so much.
I think both candidates should duke it out on Jeopardy. Let Alex Trebek decide.
He’s from Canada, he could be neutral, eh!
I just heard that the Nuggets traded Allen Iverson (pictured here on a not so good day),
in a huge deal.
Holy Mcnugget, in my last blog entry I made mention of how the Nuggets didn’t seem any different to me this season than last. (I often speak too soon)
Then I find out that they’ve traded AI for three guys, two of which are former Nuggets. I’m a huge Iverson fan.
The Nuggets in trade received 6′ 3″, Chauncey Billups. Former Nugget from 1998-2000.
Right now he averages 13 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists per game. Chauncey is 32 years old.
The second former Nugget received in the trade is Antonio Mcdyess.
He played for the nuggets from 1998-2002. Currently he averages 8 points per game with 5 rebounds and 2 assists.
Antonio is 34 years old.
Lastly we acquired Cheikh Samb.
This tower is 7′ 1″, weighs 245 lbs and has played a total of four pro games.
I don’t know much about him, yet.
The Nuggets blindsided me with this move.
I totally didn’t see this coming. I figured for sure George Karl would let Iverson play this season and finish up his contract. Iverson has been a steady 25 PPG player since he arrived in Denver.
Maybe they know/saw something I didn’t.
This move will totally tweak the dynamics of this team. At this point, who knows what direction. I also heard the Juwan Howard is on waivers.
I am excited about seeing how this bold move turns out for the Nuggets…D
