Summer 2011 Update

Well, It’s probably pretty obvious that we haven’t been posting often.  Other projects, both personal and work related have ate up much of my time over the last several months.  We’ve been posting beers to our Beer Hunt and I still post to the twitter account often though. @idrinksport

 

As football starts getting closer, we’ll get back into blogging a bit more and obviously tweeting a ton more.

 

I’m currently developing a Hub for the 757 area.  My goal is to allow people both familiar and unfamiliar with the Hampton Roads, VA area be able to quickly find Events, News and more.  (757hotspot.com)

 

Cheers!

Idrinksport Fantasy League Wrap Up Week 3

Idrinksport.com’s Official Fantasy League

Week 3

lvlaintown (3-0) 87.42 vs. Steel Breeze (2-1)60.35
This battle of unbeatens had all the makings of a last second Robbie Gould FG.  But unlike the packers lvlaintown avoided penalties and had a big day from Rodgers, Marshall and Desean Jackson.  Steel Breeze couldn’t overcome Palmer’s mistakes and fell from the list of unbeatens.

Va Beach Orange (0-3) 80.57 vs. ATL S.B. Bound (1-2)102.27
This epic battle of the cellar dwellers featured 2 of the leagues rebuilding teams.  ATL S.B.Bound came out guns  blazing as its killer B’s Brady, Boldin, and Benson racked up fantasy points.  Va Beach Orange tried to come back late, but the duo of Keller and Moss weren’t enough.

Beazy (2-1) 83.05 vs. UC Bearcats (1-2) 69.34
Matchup between family should be about sportsmanship and love.  But this was far from it as punches were thrown, kicks to the shins, and even name calling was brought out for this event.  But in the end Beazy’s duo of Rivers to Floyd was too much for the injury plagued UC Bearcats.

goOOGoOGoNzO n 10 (2-1) 93.14 vs. Swissy (1-2) 59.16
Battling for playoff seeding is a little early in the season but this matchup has the all important win and you’re in feel to it, these middle of the pack teams battled a tough 2 ½ quarters before goOOGoOGoNzo n 10 pulled away in the 2nd half behind the arm of Flacco and quick burst of Chris Johnson.

America’s Team (1-2) 90.30 vs. Endzone Boyz (1-2) 57.09
America’s Team rode the coat tails of Drew Brees perfect spirals, and the “Pretty Fly” for a white guy Austin Collie’s hands.  Endzone Boyz had a hard time finding the endzone (insert pun) as Schaub and Steven Jackson struggled in their respective matchups.

Batman & Robin (2-1) 76.73 vs. Number Juan (1-2) 107.23
In the battle of the opposite sides of the standings Number Juan pulled off the upset of the weekend as his falcons duo of Ryan and Turner proved to be too much as Batman & Robin struggled to put up points besides Peterson’s career Day.

Haterade Ounce #1

Haterade  Ounce #1

Most of America knows what haterade is, but for those in La La land (no relation to Melo’s boo).  As defined by urbandicitionary.com  Haterade is a figurative drink a hater may thirst for and share. Generally used when someone hops on the bandwagon to hate on someone or something.  Example: Aiden talking smack about Syracuse basketball and how they can’t shoot their way out of a wet paper bag.  William replies, “Aiden you drinking that haterade today.”

Haterade ounce # 1 brings us to baseball and their lack of instant replay.  I’m hating on baseball today because there have been too many instances this year where instant replay would have benefited.  Case # 1 Detroit Tiger’s Galarraga and his perfect game.  We all have seen the replay’s and god bless that first plate umpire, but that was one of the most important calls in a while.  And just last night in the Marlins game in the bottom of the 9th a ball was hit up the third base line and replays showed it was fair.  But the umpire called it foul, thus not allowing the base runner who would have scored to advance.

Instant Replay will work in baseball as long as they follow NFL blueprint.  Give each manager red flag and they get two challenges per 9 innings.  Break it down so they get 1 per 4 innings, and then comes the 9th inning.  Let upstairs review possible plays, most fans at this point would not care if it took a little longer.  If it means that their team will be given a better chance to win, they would sit an extra 2 minutes for the replay. 

So MLB I’m drinking a nice cold glass of haterade on you.

Tecmo Bowl Throwback and more.

 

  1. UCONN just lost to St. Johns 73-51. Wow.  I’m speechless.
  2. A great day in the life of fans of the Tecmo Bowl Series…Tecmo Bowl Throwback has been officially announced and will be released this spring/summer on XBOX live and the Playstation Networks.  Here is a screen shot and link to IGN.

  3. LT is meeting with the Vikings this Thursday and Thomas Jones signed with the Chiefs. Wow the NFL Free Agency is almost more exciting than watching the NBA Regular Season.
