Happy Halloween 2012!

Have a Happy Halloween everyone! Go trick-or-treating, go to costume parties, watch scary movies, watch Charlie Brown! Whatever you like to do on Halloween, do it, it only comes once a year.

Vote For The Best Office Halloween Costume!

There will never be another Halloween costume on The Office. So now, you should take the opportunity to vote for your favorite over the years. My personal favorite is pictured above. Right now, Lady GaGa Gabe is in the lead. Knock him off! Vote!

Argument 45: Why "The Curse" Is The Biggest Joke In The History Of The Universe

Book Answer: It Is

Okay, for the skeptics out there, it's probably a joke. There's no such thing as curses right? Well, this all fit together too perfectly. Let's think about it. First, Babe Ruth, the greatest baseball player in history, wins a few World Series titles with the Sox before being traded to the Yankees in 1918. Shortly there after, the Red Sox never win a World Series. Think about it. They made it in 1946, but Enos Slaughter had that half-step and Dom DiMaggio wasn't in center field. In 1967, the Red Sox are well on their way to winning it all. But Tony Conigliaro gets beaned. In 1975, Carlton Fisk brings one of the greatest moments in sports history, only to be let down in another game seven. In 1978, the Red Sox collapse and lose their colossal lead over the Yankees by the hands of Bucky Dent. In 1986, the Red Sox are literally one strike away and the champagne is ready and the World Series trophy is IN THE DUGOUT. But the ball dribbles through Buckner's legs and they go on to lose game seven. In 2003, the Red Sox have a four-run lead in the seventh game of the ALCS before Pedro is left in too long and blows the lead until Aaron Boone finishes them for good. But then they won it in 2004, right? Not without the curse being broken. In a September game at Fenway Park in 2004, a fan was sitting by the right field foul pole. Manny Ramirez hit a long shot right to the fan and hit him right in the face, knocking some teeth out. That fan lived in the same house that Babe Ruth lived in before he was traded. The Red Sox won the game and the Yankees had their worst loss in franchise history. Then, they come back 3-0 against the Yanks in the ALCS and defeat the dreaded Cardinals finally in the World Series. I don't see how any of that is a coincidence.

Gators Still Do Work

The Gators may have lost to Georgia, but some of their other sports teams are doing pretty well. The Florida Gator soccer team and their cross country team have both won SEC Championships. Good luck to them! Gator Nation!

Jimmy Fallon Stays True

During Hurricane Sandy, Jimmy Fallon had to send his studio audience home for his show on October 29. But, he still went through with the snow. The gesture was awesome so here, in his honor, is the full episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from October 29 featuring Seth Meyers, Imagine Dragons, and more.

Argument 44: Should The Red Sox Trade Manny?

Book Answer: No

I already said the book is from 2006. So, they don't know that Manny would be traded two years later to the Dodgers. They said no and I would agree in 2006. However, in mid-2008, trade him! My, he fell far.

This Week's Sports by Davids

NBA Preview! The Deron Williams version is the 200th Sports by David cover!

Marcus Lattimore's Sad End

Don't worry he didn't die, but his career might have. As we know, I'm a die-hard Gators fan and bleed blue and orange, but you have to have some respect for a fellow SEC foe. South Carolina's Heisman candidate running back, Marcus Lattimore may have suffered a terrible end to his football career. In the Gamecocks-Tennessee game on Saturday, Lattimore had a rough go. He broke his femur and patella, dislocated his knee, and tore his ACL, MCL, PCL, and LCL. I didn't even know there were that many CLs. Hope he heals soon!

Gatriots News!

Gatriots news this week is very somber. For the first time, I'm going to start with the Patriots...
 For the first time since 1775, England loves the Patriots! They cheered as Ridley rushed for a touchdown along with Vereen. They cheered as Brandon Lloyd caught two touchdowns passes. They cheered when the Patriots secondary FINALLY played well. But most of all, they cheered when Gronk showcased two spikes. So, yes, that means two touchdowns for the Gronk. Rob Gronkowski absolutely tore up the Rams defense en route to a spike that was themed like, as Gronk phrased it, "The nutcracker guys who guard the house." The other one featured Gronk swirling his hips. Both were odd, both were hilarious. Pats win 45-7. Nicely done!
Sigh. The Gators were on such a roll. Started out as #23. Won seven in a row. Comebacks against A&M and Tennessee. Fought hard to beat LSU. Destroyed South Carolina, but they just couldn't get it done against Georgia. Six turnovers, the majority of which were in the red zone, killed them. They didn't get it done this week, but here are some positives:

  • Up next for the Gators, Missouri and Jacksonville State. Should beat them handily. Georgia gets Ole Miss and Auburn, both of whom are due for a win. This means if the Gators can beat Missouri and Georgia loses to either Ole Miss or Auburn, the Gators win the SEC East and their championship hopes are alive.
  • Jeff Driskel will learn from this game. Plus, the Gators' stars are mainly freshman so they'll be around for a while. So will Muschamp.
  • Gators fell to eighth in AP and coach poll and seventh in BCS poll. Still time for them to move up as they already have.
  • Gators best case scenario: SEC Championship after defeat of Florida State (prove they're for real) with chance to beat Alabama. Worst case? Chick-Fil-A Bowl. Win out Florida!
  • Best fanbase in the nation. Go Gators!

Gronk Spike Mike

No, he didn't spike a guy named Mike, I just needed it to sound like it rhymed with spike. It was actually a microphone that he spiked at a press conference in London. He was there with Belichick, Branch, Welker, Brady, and Mesko. Hey, the fan asked and Gronk delivered, right? So awesome:

Here Comes The Boom Review

Yesterday I saw Here Comes The Boom. I had the expectation that it would be similar to Kevin James movies like Zookeeper or Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Don't get me wrong, I loved Mall Cop, but it was a silly movie. You know? Meant for you to laugh and nothing more. And that's cool, but I'm just saying this was a different kind of Kevin James movie. It had more of a structured plot with meaning that you could relate to. It was inspirational and the actors devoted themselves to the role. James lost 80 pounds for the role and Henry Winkler looks better than ever! It was a great movie and sometimes you know the outcome to films going into it, but you still root for the protagonist just as much. I thoroughly enjoyed the film. So much so that it gets a 10 out of 10 stars in my book.

10 Things To Happen Once In Baseball

It kind of ties into the World Series. I found them interesting. You should read them all. This was my favorite:

"Pitching a no-hitter on LSD: Dock Ellis of the Pittsburgh Pirates remains the only known pitcher to ever pitch a no-hitter while on LSD.  On June 12, 1970, Dock, not thinking he would be pitching that day (he had his days mixed up) took a dose of LSD.  Soon thereafter, he was summoned to start that evening’s game at Three Rivers Stadium against the San Diego Padres and won the game by a 2-0 score, pitching a no hitter in the process.  In Ellis’ own words, “I can only remember bits and pieces of the game. I was psyched. I had a feeling of euphoria. I was zeroed in on the [catcher's] glove, but I didn’t hit the glove too much. I remember hitting a couple of batters, and the bases were loaded two or three times. The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn’t. Sometimes, I tried to stare the hitter down and throw while I was looking at him. I chewed my gum until it turned to powder. I started having a crazy idea in the fourth inning that Richard Nixon was the home plate umpire, and once I thought I was pitching a baseball to Jimi Hendrix, who to me was holding a guitar and swinging it over the plate. They say I had about three to four fielding chances. I remember diving out of the way of a ball I thought was a line drive. I jumped, but the ball wasn’t hit hard and never reached me.”

Pee Wee Football Crazy Ending

This is insane.

  1. Throw
  2. Get Intercepted
  3. Don't Touch The Player
  4. Let Him Throw The Ball
  5. Pick Up The Ball
  6. Run For Touchdown
  7. Win
Remember that formula NFL players!

Argument 43: Has Johnny Pesky Been Unfairly Maligned For Allegedly "Holding The Ball" In The 1946 World Series' Final Game?

Book Answer: Yes

I have to agree. Not only did he not hold the ball, but Enos Slaughter was quite the fast player and he would have been safe anyway. However, even if Pesky did hold the ball in Game Seven, he would not be the reason. There's that terrible relay throw from the center fielder who had to replace Dom DiMaggio in the game. There's Enos Slaughter's huge lead. Lots of factors, but it's not Johnny's fault. See for yourself:

Here Comes Treble Recap


  • Wow. This is the last Halloween episode of The Office. Sad. No more costumes...
  • I wish Jim dressed up for the last one, but he had that made-up costume. One of the Men in Black? Hahaha.
  • Stanley as Usain Bolt = best costume.
  • I think Toby had a mental breakdown in this episode. But that's what made The Office great in the glory days, the awkward scenes. Toby provided one.
  • Jim-Pam storyline isn't resolved quite yet.
  • Oh my god Creed and Erin always steal the scenes.
  • Finally saw Broccoli Rob! Here Comes Treble was quite the a capella group.


What is this blasphemy? The producers of Friends almost did not put Ross and Rachel together at the end of Friends? I can't even process. Here's some help:

This Week's Entertainment by David

Sorry that I have not been good with posting lately, but it's been hectic you know?

Zach Braff Back To ABC

Well, he never really was ABC. Scrubs was NBC and died on ABC, but nonetheless, Zach Braff will be headed to ABC, not as an actor, but as a writer/director/producer. The show is a comedy called Garage Bar. It will be about a group of friends who experience the ups and downs of fame after one becomes a pop star. Could be good! Braff is good!

Argument 42: Should Roger Clemens Go Into The Hall Wearing A Red Sox Cap?

Book Answer: Yes

Keep in mind, this book was written in 2006, one year before the Mitchell Report came out and named players who took steroids, Roger Clemens being one of them. So knowing what we know, he might not even make it into the Hall of Fame. That's how strict votes will be. However, if he does make it, I want him in a Yankees hat so that way we won't have to bear the shame of steroids.

Harvard Pilgrim Rolls 'Em Out

If you asked me who I thought would produce the most uplifting and some of the best commercials of the year, I would not have said Harvard Pilgrim. But they did:

Saturday Night Live's Political Skits

These are so spot on and so hilarious. So perfect. Just watch them, you'll laugh so very much.

And some Jimmy Fallon bonus:

Don't worry it's not politics, just humor.

Argument 41: Who Was The Most Important GM In Red Sox History?

Book Answer: Dick O'Connell

O'Connell was a good executive and he saved the Sox franchise and sent them to the pennant in 1967, but I have to pick Theo Epstein. Yes, I'm still angry at him for leaving the Red Sox when things got tough, but he was still our savior. Just look at that pose. He's basically saying, "I am your savior." Quite the young hotshot. I've said that he wasn't the complete reason for the Red Sox's 2004 World Series championship, but he did have all to do with the executive portion of 2007. So, yeah, there's that.

Tom Hanks Reads Full House Slam Poetry

How awesome is this? Tom Hanks is not only Jimmy Fallon, but then he reads slam poetry about Full House. Pure poetry.

John Farrell Is Not The Right Choice

Let me rephrase that. John Farrell is not the right long-term choice. I think that the Sox recognize that because they're clearly grooming Jason Varitek. Farrell has been brought in to Boston to be the new manager and Bobby Valentine's replacement. He'll be better than Bobby V because as Dustin Pedroia said, he will command "instant respect." However, I think Farrell is a part of the rebuilding phase. He's going to get the team back on track and leave when the contract is up. Varitek will replace him. I believe this is the plan. Hopefully, Farrell can do his job.

Argument 40: Did Boston Fans Really Suffer All That Much?

Book Answer. No. Chicago Suffers More.

It would suck to be a Cubs fan, but I think it would suck more to be a Cleveland fan. Boston fans may have suffered through the Sox, but they had Bruin and Celtic distractions. Cleveland has nothing. Their football franchise LEFT THE CITY and came back as the BROWNS. That should be reason enough, but LeBron left too and the Indians are god awful. All three have finished in last place in their conference in the past three years. They haven't won any championship since 1964. Wow.

Argument 39: The Boston Sports Trivia Question That Will Never Go Away

Book Answer: Who is the Only Person to Play for the Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins and Who Started at Second Base for the Red Sox on Opening Day in 1967?

This is a weird argument. Those questions are nice and all, but I'll pick one that just might be going away soon. Who was the last player to win the Triple Crown? This one's not a trick question, but an actual fact that's been around since 1967. Carl Yastrzemski is the man. He won the Triple Crown during the 1967 Impossible Dream season. However, Miguel Cabrera just won the Triple Crown this season. So, it's on it's way out. But it was a good one.

They Keep In Touch

Four MLB stars were spotted at Disneyland in Cars Land recently. Who are they? Andre Ethier, Jonathan Papelbon, Cody Ross, and Dustin Pedroia! Not a bad crew. Pedroia and Ross are two of my favorite players. Papelbon was cool in Boston and it's nice to see he keeps in touch with Pedey. Andre Ethier is also pretty good friends with Pedroia. That'd be a fun time. If you remember, Pedroia and Ethier went on Toy Story Mania last year. Nice!

More Gatriots News!

 The Gators absolutely destroyed, trounced, dominated, chomped, whatever you want to say, they did it to South Carolina. The Gators exploded on defense right out of the gate and stepped up the offense in the second half to beat the #7 ranked team 44-11! Jeff Driskel threw for a career-high four touchdowns. The Gators moved up in the coaches poll, but stayed the same in the AP poll and BCS standings. Georgia's up next. CHOMP CHOMP!
Thank god the Patriots won that one. They squeaked out an overtime victory over the Jets 29-26. New England moves to 4-3 and first place in the AFC East. The Patriots should have won that one by 30, but their defense is abysmal and their offense can't close out a game. Luckily, Sanchez did nothing for the Jets late and Gostkowski redeemed himself with two field goals to tie and win. Rob Ninkovic was key as he forced the fumble to win the game. Gronk caught two touchdowns as well! There were some high points, the Patriots aren't at their best. They need to be. Soon.

The Greatest Athlete Of All-Time

Baseball: Willie Mays
Game Changers: Jackie Robinson

Sophie Shazana Kennedy

Would you look at that? Can you guess who I'm holding? My newborn niece, Sophie! She was born on the 19th of October at 9:59 PM. She only weighed 5.8 pounds as she was 24 days early. I'm so happy she's finally here! She's awesome! Life is good, isn't it?

Amazingly Timed Photos

OMG Facts has posted a gallery of amazingly timed photos. I thoroughly enjoyed them. You will too. Check 'em out.

Community Season 4 Sneak Peek

As I said yesterday, Community should have premiered by now. You've seen the fan video, but here's a sneak peek to help us all make it to the true October 19.

October 19

As you all know, today was supposed to be the day of the Community premiere. NBC did their average "we will do nothing to help Community" and postponed it. However, the cast wants the fans to have some kind of show. Here you go. Thanks to the cast:

'Work Bus' Recap

*SPOILER* Don't read if you haven't seen.

  • Are Pam and Jim all good now? Didn't seem like the story that Greg Daniels hoped for.
  • Softball team? That was out of the blue. Also, uncharacteristic of Andy to make that type of video. I did like his Gatorade tumble.
  • What do we want? Pies! When do we want 'em? Pies!
  • Week in and week out, Creed always has the funniest scene.
  • Jim and Dwight have certainly bonded over the years. It's nice.

Argument 38: Does Nancy Kerrigan Owe Tanya Harding A Thank You?

Book Answer: Yes, But She Shouldn't Hold Her Breath

This is an argument where the book is stretching to be different. The answer is simple. No. It was a terrible act that will always be a dark cloud in the world of sports. No thank you should ever be issued to Tanya Harding.

This Week's Entertainment by David

Argument 37: Who Was The Greatest Clutch Performer In Celtics History?

Book Answer: Larry Bird

I actually have agreed with all four clutch performers that the book chose. Orr. Vinatieri. Papi. Now, Larry Bird joins the group. In addition, to his numerous and countless clutch threes, jumpers, and overall plays that Bird pulled off over the years, he also made that great play. I'll put in the quote for you. "Passes it and there's a steal by Bird! Underneath to DJ, he lays it in. What a play by Bird!" Straight up clutch.

Series of Humorous Photos

I noticed that I was coming across many humorous photos and just had to share them.

Humorous, no?

Gators Plot Twist!

This couldn't wait for the Gatriots news! The Gators who were picked by many to be the #3 team in the first release of the BCS Standings. Plot twist! They're #2! If the season ended today, they'd be playing for the National Championship! Can't wait 'til they're #1, though. Glad the Gators are back!

Argument 36: Who Was The Greatest Clutch Performer In Red Sox History?

Book Answer: David Ortiz

The book was close to picking Carl Yastrzemski, but they picked David Ortiz. I'll pick him too. Those 2004 playoffs must have really exercised his shoulders because he carried the entire team on his back. Game Four. Walk-off homer. Game Five. Walk-off base hit. The legend of Big Papi will never die. It will never die due to his clutchness.

Gronk On E:60

E:60 gave Rob Gronkowski a video camera for the summer and sent him off. This is what came back. Sheer awesomeness:

The Mega Free Fall

Two miles off! Nah, I'm just kidding, 24.2 miles is still so very impressive. Felix Baumgartner broke the record for the largest parachuted free fall. It took him ten minutes to fall from above the atompshere! He broke the sound barrier! So very awesome!

Argument 35: Who Was The Greatest Clutch Performer In Patriots History?

Book Answer: Adam Vinatieri

I have to agree. Tom Terrific is terrific and all, but you can get much clutcher than a kicker. And you can't get much clutcher than Adam Vinatieri. His reign of dominance began in the Snow Bowl. He kicked the game-winning field goal in mounds of snow. Then, his leg won the Super Bowl in the same year, 2002. Then, he kicked another Super Bowl-winning kick in 2004. Two Super Bowl victories behind his leg. You gotta go with the kicker.

Paul Rudd Creates The Greatest Television Event In History

I don't know if I'd go that far, but it's still pretty cool. Very accurate too. Paul Rudd recreated Simon & Simon intro shot for shot. Along with Jon Hamm, it came out pretty good. Check out the side by side:

This Week's Sports by David

Argument 34: Who Was The Greatest Clutch Performer In Bruins History?

Book Answer: Bobby Orr

I'd like to see you pick someone besides Bobby Orr. You only need one statistic to back it up. 92 total points in his playoff career. You can go further. Four goals in the 1972 Stanley Cup. You can go further. Five game winning goals. You can go further. The Goal. The Dive. He is Bobby Orr. The man, the mystique. So clutch it's crazy.

Gatriots News!

This week Gatriots News is half sad. Let's begin with the happy!

The Gators won once again! This time it was a 31-17 victory over Vanderbilt! Jeff Driskel rushed for three touchdowns, one of them being a 70 yarder! He set the all-time Gators quarterback rushing record for a single game. Don't worry Tebow you still hold the all-time career record. With the win, the Gators moved to number 3 in the AP poll and will be number 3 in the BCS poll thanks to South Carolina's loss. Speaking of South Carolina, they're up next to be chomped! Go Gators!

Yes, a happy picture for the sad news. Aaron Hernandez is back! He caught a touchdown in his first game since the ankle injury. Wes Welker also recorded a receiving touchown. It was not enough, however, as the Patriots defense faltered yet again in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks defeated the Patriots 24-23. It's sad, but the Pats will be back on track. They play the Jets next week! Go Patriots!

Oh, Mario

People can have such fun with parody videos involving Mario. Here's the latest and one of the funniest.

Too Funny To Not Post

This just made me laugh too much. Several parts are my favorites, but you can have your own. Just a warning. Very profane language.

Like I said profane language, but funny nonetheless.
