The Morning After: September 13, 2011

Yesterday was not your average Monday in sports. Monday Night Football debuted with a double header and we got the evermore normal Monday U.S. Open Men’s Final between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. I’m sure there was some baseball played somewhere, but let’s be honest, the moment football hit the airwaves baseball was nothing more than white noise to any sensible sports fan.

As I said above, the U.S. Open final was held yesterday and it was EPIC. Djokovic won his third major of the season, beating Nadal for the 6th time this year (all six were in the finals). Just as Nadal owns Roger Federer, Djokovic seems to own Nadal. With one big event left (the season-ending Masters event) the Djoker has 10 titles, 3 majors and just two losses in 2011. Should he close out the year with a win (gonna be tough) he will have a strong argument for the best season in the Open era. For those who think Pete Sampras was the GOAT, y’all need to know that Federer, Djokovic and Nadal each have bigger games than St. Pete. Oh to be able to watch Sampras play these men in their prime…

There was also a Tom Brady sighting last night. Miami fans know this well, as the Uggs pitchman carved up the Dolphins to the tune of more than 500 yards passing, including a 99-yard strike to Scrappy Doo Wes Welker, capping a 38-24 win. I’m not abreast to the talent (or lack thereof) in Miami, but lighting them up for more than five hundy through the air is pretty nasty. Brady is winning the game of life, folks.

The late game was Oakland at Denver. The last I saw it was 3-0 after most of the first quarter. There was no way in hell I was staying up to watch Kyle Orton perform adamantly at QB. If only Tim Tebow was duffing passes into the ground. I would have watched that shit for hours.

And with that, let’s hit the links:

Remember when Atlanta said they were going to open up the offense? Me neither.

The Tea Party Debate was “Gold, Jerry!!”

Manny Ramirez was arrested (in Florida, of course) for domestic battery.

Serena Williams was fined $2,000 for acting like a spoiled brat.

The SEC has accepted Texas A&M as the 13th member. I swear I’ve heard this for a month now.

Garrett Gilbert (per Clown, he’ll get at least two Heisman’s) is now the 3rd-string quarterback at Texas.

Georgia has now lost both starting inside linebackers for several weeks. Yikes.

Apparently there is a “Jewish Facebook.” Apparently they separate the sexes.

Death by scuba. (video)

Anyone into some Louis C.K. videos?

Manny Pacquiao. Mexican TV. Karaoke. Need I say more?

I’m not a sports bettor, but if I was, I think I’d jump all over Ohio State getting 2 points against Miami.

    We suck. Cameron Wake is still a beast.

  2. The SEC has accepted Texas A&M as the 13th member. I swear I’ve heard this for a month now.

    I think more shocking is the fact that they might sit at 13…that can’t make teh SEC West schools happy.

    No clue who #14 will be, but it won’t be WVU like the rumors say. No effin way.

  3. Garrett Gilbert (per Clown, he’ll get at least two Heisman’s) is now the 3rd-string quarterback at Texas.

    Everytime I’ve seen the guy play he’s been just a pile of suck. Colt McCoy’s brother better light the fires.

  4. For those who think Pete Sampras was the GOAT, y’all need to know that Federer, Djokovic and Nadal each have bigger games than St. Pete

    Uh oh, shots fired. Just wait till the boss gets here.

  5. Manny Ramirez was arrested (in Florida, of course)

    Ummmm…..Im not sure what this means. Does Floriduh enforce domestic violence laws better than other states, like say Georgia?

  6. No clue who #14 will be, but it won’t be WVU like the rumors say. No effin way.

    Still hold a grudge against them for deserting the south in the war of northern aggression?

  7. Does Floriduh enforce domestic violence laws better than other states, like say Georgia?

    Florida definitely has some o fthe most sensative. If a cop is called out to the house, someone is getting arrested, even if both sides say nothing happened.

  8. Still hold a grudge against them for deserting the south in the war of northern aggression?

    Ha!

    No, I just don’t see that school fitting the profile.

  9. If a cop is called out to the house, someone is getting arrested, even if both sides say nothing happened.

    Many states have this law. Im just wondering why it’s Floriduh “of course”. I mean, the guy lives here, where the else was he gonna get arrested for smacking his wife? Do Floriduh men beat there wives more than other states?

  10. Is WV too much hillbilly and not enough redneck for you? I mean seriously how can you resist the untapped mountain man tv market (side note I’m making fun of the state so much because i had the unfortunate luck of growing up there; luckily it was more suburban pittsburgh than full on west virgina)

  11. Many states have this law. Im just wondering why it’s Floriduh “of course”. I mean, the guy lives here, where the else was he gonna get arrested for smacking his wife? Do Floriduh men beat there wives more than other states?

    Because if someone gets arrested and it’s newsworthy it always seems to be in Florida.

  12. I’m sure there was some baseball played somewhere, but let’s be honest, the moment football hit the airwaves baseball was nothing more than white noise to any sensible sports fan.

    Well I flipped on the Yankees after watching NE-Miami since I didn’t care about Denver-Raiders game. Also totally forget the men’s final was on last night.

    I was busy in any event changing the walking belt on our treadmill. It cost $118 for the replacement belt with shipping and then took about 3 hours to put on. The damn thing had to be disassembled including pulling staples out that held some plastic onto the walking board. I had to loosen up the motor, remove the rollers, walking board and about 20 pieces of plastic with different sized screws that were set so far back in that a screwdriver wouldn’t reach. …but I did it and now my wife has no excuse if she gets a big butt.

  13. Kyle Orton perform adamantly at QB.

    Not sure I understand what this means.

    US Open Men’s final started at 4 pm, I caught some at the gym, not enough to make me care.

  14. Not sure I understand what this means.

    It means there was no way he was going to let Tim Tebow take his job!
