Player of the D.A.Y.

no jinxing

By Sam Rubenstein

Yes the GIANT SUPER BOWL is approaching… yes LOST season 4 debuts tonight… yes we are in the midst of the final season of The Wire, it could go on with things that don’t happen inside of a television set. Yes the actor who plays Omar from The Wire was here yesterday and he had braces and was a very friendly man who didn’t have a shotgun and bulletproof vest thereby shattering my illusions. Yes it is grammatically annoying to begin every sentence with the word yes.

If you were looking forward to me writing something about the Super Bowl, understand I have to be very careful about jinxes. My Tom Brady voodoo doll was working, but as you can see his foot seems to have healed. Must adjust dosage. I’m also concerned with all the talk coming from Giants players… stay quiet.  Plaxico…  why are you doing this! More tomorrow.

Awards to give out:

Games played Tuesday night: Three-way race between Kevin Durant leading the Sonics over the Spurs, Antawn Jamison with a 20-20 evening in an OT win over the Raptors, or Yao with 36 and 19 in a win over Golden State. Very tough call between Yao and Jamison… and the winner is Yao. He hit 14 of 15 free throws. Here’s a great stat I just happened to see: Yao is a 91% free throw shooter on the road this season.

Games played last night: It’s LeBron, as Al Jefferson gets overshadowed once again. MVP race updated: 1) LeBron 2) Chris Paul.

    I like Plaxico’s confidence, because I think he’s going to have a huge game against the Pats suspect corners just like he did against the Packers. I’ll withhold my final score until you post you Giant piece tomorrow, Sam.

    Go G-Men! Need a good pass rush though. You’re right, Sam, ‘Bron carried the night (again).

    Well, I for one am not afraid of predicting the weekend’s big football game: Blackburn 0-1 Everton. Play with this!

  • http://slamonline.com Sam Rubenstein

    there has already been bad news about Super Bowl… having a little party, but already made some mistakes on invite… things won’t be 100% perfect. Nervous.

    there is still a football game left? i thought the season was over?

  • http://www.INEED.ORG Tarzan Cooper

    sam, how do you fu(k up a superbowl party? especially invites?? did you accidentally invite ryan jones only to realize you dont want ignorant a$$holes at your party?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Nice try Tarzan. Two problems:
    1. Sam has never invited me to anything, accidentally or otherwise.
    2. It’s “ignorant as*holes.” Check your style manual.

    APA Slam posting Jones? What a teacher.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Jones an ignorant as*hole? Nah, An as*hole for sure, but ignorant? I’m not feeling that.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Jared, I don’t understand that first sentence.

  • http://slamonline.com Sam Rubenstein

    I don’t host events that often, but SUPERBOWLs are when I do it… anyways, there are people I wasn’t supposed to invite that I did, involving a politically explosive situation blah blah blah it’s all very interesting… long story short, having a girlfriend who is friends with your friends girlfriends creates all kinds of… stuff

    At least she has friends Sam. And Jones…I was implying that you’re imposing a formal structure to our grammar on this posting board.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Ah. Yeah, that structure is only for Tarzan. ‘Cause he’s a d*uche.

    Who does Arsenal play this weekend?
    *heads over to BBC Sports*

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Hm, Man City on Saturday. A battle of unbeatens. Could be interesting.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Unbeaten whats?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Oops, looking at the wrong column–they’re both unbeaten at home. I thought it was kind of strange that four sides hadn’t taken an L yet. My bad.

  • The Best Yet

    what’s the likelihood of B.Roy getting the nod for ASG?

  • http://yahoo.com DP

    1 in a dog sh*t’s chance Best Yet. He should get the nod but the world just doesn’t operate that way. Jinx or not, the Giants will lose by a touchdown. I know I’m not good at predictions because I thought my boy Farve would still be in the Super bowl and that didn’t turn out so good for health but I guarantee the Giants will play a good game but fall short. play wit it.
