As I Lay Eating

“Asik and Destroy” – Stacey King, Bulls commentator & player commenting on Bulls center, Omer Asik.

A couple of years ago, I was looking up the Oakland A’s website for baseball tickets in which I stumbled upon an All You Can Eat season ticket.  I wasn’t too sure of the price of it, but the season ticket entitled you to 81 games of the A’s, as well as an unlimited supply of hot dogs, nachos and soft drink for the duration of the game.  I could imagine myself completely drowning those nachos with the hot liquid cheese, and stuffing as much hot dogs down my throat.  I can also imagine the damage I might be doing in the toilets afterwards.

Peterborough United are offering 10 season tickets priced at 15k pounds each, for a seat in the ‘director’s box’ and an endless supply of pies and champagne.  Pies and champagne!  I would be slightly confuse on my status in the world if I consumed those two together.

The Amarillo Sox Baseball Club offer the “Bud Light Bullpen All You Can Eat Party Deck”, in which you are allowed to have as many hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, chicken nuggets (gold!), french fries, potato chips, ice cream, soft drink and beer (I assumed this would be Bud Light) at $25 per person.  $25???  That works out to be a pub meal and a pot of beer here in Melbourne.

For $70, you can catch an Atlanta Braves game while devouring smoked chicken bbq sandwich, buffalo chicken wings, all beef franks (just say hot dogs), baked potato salad, chocolate chip cookies, soda and draft beer.

With the new Major League Baseball starting soon, 19 out of the 30 baseball teams will have an All You Can Eat ticket available during the course of the season.  To me, that is heaven.

I’m off to watch the Hawks play on Sunday with no all you can eat options.  This is depressing.

And to my ”I’m not to be blamed for your gambling problem, but here is my best sports bet of the week”…

Butler has been paying off for me last week.  I hope it did the same for you.

This bet has no reasoning whatsoever, but it’s just fun to see who scores first.

Chris Bosh is a pussy

“Can I have two tickets to see The Roger?” – Bins’ Chinese girlfriend asking for tickets to see Rodger Federer

After months of exile, the Jose has decided to make a comeback.  Hopefully this comeback won’t be as painful as Michael Jordan’s effort with the Wizards, or as short as Tony Lockett’s last stint as a Swan.  I can guarantee you that I will be maintaining this blog at least once a week.

So what has happened to the yellow one since he dominated Chicago?

– Made $2300 from sports betting – which I have now created a new segment in this blog called “I’m not to be blamed for your gambling problem, but here is my best sports bet of the week”

– I bought a bowling ball, and will now join a league to continue on pursuing my dream as a professional bowler – My ball has FREEZE engraved on it.  It’s so cool.

– Became obsessed with Derrick Rose – MVP MVP MVP

– Became obsessed with Blake Griffin – I cannot believe that I’ve nearly  watched the same amount of Clippers games as I have with Bulls games.

So what’s with the title of this post?  Bosh, who plays for the Miami Heat (what’s Miami Heat (for the majority of my friends)?  It’s a NBA basketball team which requires a player to be an absolute douchebag to join the team), recently pulled out the following comment:

“C’mon, that is how guys get hurt, that is how serious injuries happen,” Bosh said.”You’ve got to watch people’s legs. I know guys want to hustle and everything but we all want to play and provide for our families and have a job.”

This is after a Bulls player, Omer Asik, went to dive for a ball (it’s called hustle Chris!) and accidently injured Bosh’s ankle.  Chris Bosh earns approximately $17 million a season over the next five years, so I think he’ll be alright in providing for his family (unless his family is the whole of the state of Texas, which I’m sure it isn’t).

I’ve recently had dreams of being a starting point guard for the Chicago Bulls (sorry Derrick, but I can shoot a lot better than you).  I was dreaming that I was the superstar of the team, and had thoughts of what music I would have while I was playing.  I was thinking at the start of the first quarter, I would have ‘Walk in the Park’ by Beach House.  A perfect song to calm the nerves at the start of the game, and get me in rhythm while I destroy the opposition.  And if my team was behind, I would play ‘Sabotage’ by the Beastie Boys to provide panic in the opposition and at the same time provide the necessary fuel to start a comeback.  And just before tip off, I would have ‘Know Your Enemy’ by Rage Against the Machine, just to ensure that there will be no fraternising with the opposition.

If Jamie Oliver can change the school’s food menu, can we have Nigella introduce her line of fatty foods at sports venue?

And to my “I’m not to be blamed for your gambling problem, but here is my best sports bet of the week”…

Miami to beat New York by more than 11 points at $3.90

Reason: New York has not played very well at all  in the last 10 games (3-7), and seen a drop in production from Amare and Felton.  LeDouche likes playing at Madison Square Garden, and his teams have always pummeled the Knicks (even during the last encounter in New York when the Knicks were flying).
