Viva La Dong

Work is time consuming

Loyal Dong Readers:

This is a formal apology for the dearth of posts over the past few weeks. As we're essentially a 3 man show (2 if you count "man" as packing at least 3 inches), it's tough to provide the Dong Nation with the quantity and quality of content that you all deserve. I've also been out of the country for 3 weeks.

Let's recap a few important topics:

It's not time to panic yet, Cutler was rattled (first game as a Bear in the biggest rivalry in football on the road at Lambeau) but I think he'll settle down and be just fine. Bigger issue is Ron Turner. It's possible that he's not a very good offensive coordinator and we're not calling the right plays (evidenced by not countering the blitz with screens to Forte (0 receptions) or dumps to Olsen (1 reception)). We'll see if the passing game takes advantage of a Polamalu-less Steelers secondary next week.

The defense looked really good. Tommie Harris and Alex Brown were solid, Wale was spectacular and Big Bad Dan Manning picked up where he left off last year (dominant). Losing Urlacher sucks but I like Hillenmeyer and maybe we'll pick up a FA (Brooks?). Either way, I think we're back as a top 5 defense in the league. Trust me, this will be the last time this season that Rodgers throws for less than 200 yards.

Week 2 prediction: Bears 21, Steelers 17

White Sox:
Big meltdown last month (nothing like coming home to see our beloved chisox doing a great Cubs impression) but we're only 6.5 games out and we can make a run with a strong finish. Peavy makes his first start against KC in a few days - very exciting. Regardless, the Thome deal is a harbinger of more moves if we crap out... on the block: Dye, AJP, Konerko.


Collaborating with The Great Rabbino:
My buddy writes it. He's a jew, loves judaism and loves jewish atheletes. A good niche blog for those of you with hook noses, small dingys and a predilection for bagels and smoked salmon.

The Ultimate Fighter:
This show is awesome. Season 10 premiered last night and did not disappoint. Kimbo Slice is a contestant and if you don't know Kimbo...


This show makes stars. Essentially, there are 2 teams of prospective fighters and the winner gets a fat contract from the UFC. Both teams are trained by UFC stars (like Chuck Liddell, Rampage Jackson, Frank Mir, etc). Previous winners include Diego Sanchez, Forrest Griffin, Rashad Evans, and Michael Bisping.

If you like watching people literally beat the shit out of each other AND have to live together and pretend to like each other, you will enjoy this show.

Football Randomness:
  • LaDanian Tomlinson is washed up.
  • Terrell Owens has T(O)-minus 2 weeks until he's calling Trent Edwards names and doing shirtless situps in his driveway.
  • Chris Johnson will be a top 3 fantasy RB this season
  • Mark Sanchez is better than the hype. Dude is legit and Rex Ryan knows what he's doing.
  • If Matt Schaub continues to suck, we might see the Sex Cannon in action over in Houston
  • Oakland's defense is legit
Viva laDong.
