Hornswoggle – There There was nary a period of boredom in the sports realm this calendar year, me thinks because of two very special events: one being the fulfillment of a long-awaited run by the Philadelphia Eagles in SB LII, and the other a very entertaining World Cup, with many Les Bleus singing praises about N’Golo Kanté (one of my favorite players nowadays).
But my favorite sports moment(s) this year can be summed up in one word: Liverpool.They might have lost to Madrid in the UCL Final last season because of two Karius (thank God we loaned him out this season) blunders and Ramos intentionally forcing Salah in tears and out of commission (but I digress), but the road to the final has been nothing but scintillating. Their “Allez Allez Allez” chant—although not original—snowballed into the kind of hit that many clubs are adopting (of course, with their own words); Mohamed Salah broke the Premier League record for goals last season; and now with the squad undefeated in their last 20+games in all competitions as well as some ridiculously great additions in Fabinho, Shaqiri, Keita, and Alisson, Liverpool is, I say unabashedly, an unstoppable freight train in the Prem. Mike Myers and I are deff excited for Klopp and the gang. But you know what the greatest gift from this club might be(which would only reveal itself long after Christmas)? Ah, well, I’m not gonna write it because I’ll jinx it… but Karma’s Heather and Cory know what I’m thinking.[Continue Reading…]
It’s that time of year again! It’s actually been that time of year for a month…Poaching Season!
Much like The Purge, where everything is legal for one day, and you aren’t allowed to be mad if someone kills a loved one or even you, Poaching Season is a guilt-free zone. Poach away, you poachers!
Here are some of the people that are most likely to have poach attempts directed at them, and some of the predators people like Julie and Cat should watch out for:
1. Yetter/Bryan/Jess, Dark Rainbows: The Rainbows went from winless to beating a D1 team in the playoffs this year. They gave Cobra Kai a serious run for their money, and only a drunken Sam stopped Cat/Greenwald/Tia from winning the captain of the year vote (they actually did win it). Much of their success came from the three newbies. The Troika of captains better sleep with one eye open, or else some Gritty captain will cuckold them, and steal what’s theirs.
Teams to watch out for: Lbs. Jess has built a nice friendship with someone from the Lbs., and Yetter and Luke click on another level for the Cleveland Browns in District 5. Both would make a nice fit.
Odds of Poaching: 0%. First year players rarely pull a Hicks and leave. They have a great thing going and won’t mess it up. [Continue Reading…]

Just when you thought you could get a break from nonstop notifications from the BTSH Facebook group, another season recap comes your way. Don’t worry – we’ll keep this one relatively short as the stars were already handed out at the end of season party, but for those of you who missed it because you either didn’t attend the end of season party (shame on you) or were having sex in the bathroom during the end of season party (good for you), here’s all you need to know.
ScottyK – Scotty was super pumped for this season and by the time early August had rolled around, he was tied for the league lead in goals having shattered his previous career high. Unfortunately he then proceeded to also shatter his ACL, tearing it into pieces the way I imagine he Hulk Hogans his Blink182 shirt after every game. Despite this horrible turn of events for everyone except Fuzz, he was still at the courts every Sunday cheering on his team (and the Rainbows because he’s actually quite romantic, don’t ask me how I know). He never let his injury get him down and instead redirected his efforts and energy towards helping the LBS however he could, from scouting reports on playoff opponents to keeping morale high on the bench during games. This weekend he was in attendance, crutches and all, as our beloved teammates Avery & Micayla tied the knot in a wedding for the ages. This guy exemplifies what this league is supposed to be all about (except, I’ve been told, for the being good at hockey part) but since I’m writing this star and not JW, I’m going to consider that a plus as well.
