April 2011 | Sharapova's Thigh

I totally would. I'm not exaggerating when I say that might be my favorite hat ever.

But then I ask myself, "Am I out of my mind for thinking that's an awesome hat and wanting to wear the hell out of it?" I mean, a trucker hat with a baseball card imprint on it of Larry Walker in a Montreal Expos uniform?

I think it's hilariously awesome, but then I realize other people would probably think I'm a freaking moron for wearing it. Not that I really even care about the haters, because baseball cards, Larry Walker, and those early 90s Montreal Expos days were awesome and there's no reason to convince me otherwise. Additionally, you have to recognize the Expos every now and again. So yeah, I think I have great reasons to think that's a badass lid.

Anyway, it's available to buy for $21.99(with additional shipping costs of course) on ebay. I've sat here thinking about pulling the trigger, but I don't know. Feel free to jump in if it's still available and steal it away. And if any of you get it, I want to hear all about it, especially about the reactions you get when sporting the hat around town.

And... this of course calls for a poll:

Why did he choose Michigan? Because he says God told him to go there:

Engel Beltre, a minor leaguer for the Frisco RoughRiders(Class AA affiliate for the Texas Rangers), has been suspended indefinitely after tossing a trash can at fans following Tuesday's game at Wolff Stadium in San Antonio.

Here's more, from My San Antonio:
Frisco RoughRiders outfielder Engel Beltre has been suspended indefinitely by the Texas League for his role in an altercation with fans after Tuesday's game against the Missions.

The suspension likely will be for 10 days, but a definitive ruling is scheduled to be announced today, a spokesman for the league said.

Beltre was identified as the player who tossed the trash can into the stands moments after the RoughRiders' 7-6 loss to the Missions.

The Texas Rangers, Frisco's major-league parent club, also disciplined the outfielder, placing him on the temporarily inactive list and optioning him to the team's extended spring training site in Arizona.

Frisco manager Steve Buechele said that Beltre's actions would not be tolerated.

“When you put on a uniform and are on the field, it's uncalled for to throw anything in the stands,” Buechele said. “Fans are going to say stuff. You can't react by throwing things.”
Classy, and not exactly the best way to help your chances of moving up to the bigs.

Also, Steve Buechele!

At this moment, there's 83 people confirmed dead following violent storms and tornadoes on Wednesday across the South.

I followed much of the coverage of these storms live on The Weather Channel, watching in disbelief. I'd never seen a mile-wide tornado on television before, until this. The death toll is surely to rise, and the damage done to the towns involved is severe to say the least.

Having said all that; and I do not mean to approach this in a disrespectful manner given the tragedy that's struck; the people that just hang around like it's nothing when there's a natural disaster such as a severe hurricane or tornado amaze me.

I'm getting the hell out of there. I'm hiding under a desk with 50 pillows covering me. I'm staying away from windows. Whatever seems like the safest option given your surroundings, I'm doing that. I don't care if that makes me a pussy, that's how I'm going to handle it.

Is Carlos Boozer Injured?

Posted by Matt Clapp | 4/27/2011 04:51:00 PM | , , , ,

I posted what you're about to read on a message board I frequent for my nerdy Chicago sports talk/ranting. Since I spent a bit of time researching for it, and since I posted much of it in a bunch of tweets, I figured I'd just throw it all up on my blog.

This why I think there's a very good chance Chicago Bulls power forward Carlos Boozer is dealing with an injury(more than just this "turf toe" that he was diagnosed with in game five against Pacers) that either he and/or the Bulls are hiding:

Before All-Star Break(36 games): 19.3 PTS, 9.9 REB, .542 FG%
After All-Star Break(23 games): 14.8 PTS, 9.0 REB, .455 FG%

December FG %(16 games): .551
January FG %(13 games): .539
February FG%(11 games): .503
March FG%(11 games): .464
April FG%(8 games): .440

And if people are wondering, well, how's he done in the playoffs? Really damn good for the most part, except for this year obviously.

06-07(17 games): 23.5 PTS, 12.2 REB, .536 FG%
07-08(12 games): 16.0 PTS, 12.3 REB, .415 FG%
08-09(5 games): 20.6 PTS, 13.2 REB, .528 FG%
09-10(10 games): 19.7 PTS, 13.2 REB(playoff leader), .530 FG%
10-11(5 games so far): 10.0 PTS, 10.2 REB, .357 FG%

Those are some pretty convincing numbers that something must be up. He's never much been much of a choker in the playoffs or big games.. And before the All-Star break, he looked like the normal Carlos Boozer. Now, he looks just horrible.

1st Half 20-point, 10-rebound games:

22-18(vs Indiana)
24-10(vs Indiana again)

That's 15 20-10 games out of 36 total games.

2nd Half 20-point, 10-rebound games:


2 20-10 games out of 26 total games.

Joakim Noah's return could have had a bit of an impact on the numbers, but I don't know... sure is quite a ridiculous difference.
As I concluded, Noah's return following injury could have impacted Boozer's production a bit, but the field goal percentage especially shouldn't be making that big of a drop.

And Boozer's explosiveness has clearly been lacking of late. I think I've seen him maybe ATTEMPT three dunks over the last few months. It would also make more sense as to why he's been constantly in foul trouble over the last couple of months, as he has to fight harder on the boards or to elevate in the lane for layups when his body isn't completely allowing him to do so.

Maybe he's just in a horrible, horrible slump, but his very consistent career leads me to believe that it's more than that.

What do you think?

If you believe in curses, you probably want to pass on Peyton Hillis in your 2011 fantasy football draft, as the Cleveland Browns' running back will be on the cover of EA Sports' Madden '12 video game.

Hillis beat out Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick in the final round of fan voting to decide who would be on the cover. And if Vick won, that would've gotten some interesting reactions to say the least.

But Peyton Hillis, a white running back?! Who saw that coming? Certainly not Josh McDaniels, who shipped Hillis from the Broncos to the Browns before the 2010 offseason for quarterback Brady Quinn.

Now, McDaniels is no longer the Broncos' head coach, Quinn is the Broncos' third-string quarterback, and Hillis is a star running back that is a cover boy for the incredibly popular Madden video game.

Hillis is the youngest player to be on the Madden cover at 25 years old, and also gets around $125,000 for being on the cover(H/T: Darren Rovell).

More than 27,000 people were killed or are missing after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake, and subsequent tsunami struck Japan on March 11th. Loved ones lost. Homes and cherished personal belongings lost. Communities lost. It's just an absolute tragedy, that mentally and economically, the Japanese may not fully recover from anytime soon.

I've been hesitant to post any of the videos and whatnot following the tragedy. Bone-chilling, harrowing stuff just really isn't our style at the Thigh.

But, I came across a video last night that was too amazing for me to not share with you.

It involves people in Iwaki City running away(well, a few of them for some reason weren't exactly in a hurry at first as you'll see) as a killer wave chases after them. They are able to reach higher ground right before the wave can eat them up. Everybody in the video survived(it sounds like). Otherwise, I wouldn't be posting it.

It's a very scary video. There's a ton of frantic screaming, and just seeing the wave come after the people trying to get away will probably send a shiver down your spine. So, you've been warned.

Anyway, here's the video, which looks straight out of a natural disaster-based movie:

In fourth quarter action of tonight's Detroit Pistons-Cleveland Cavaliers game, the Pistons' Charlie Villanueva got tangled up with the Cavaliers' Ryan Hollins. And then all hell broke loose.

Villanueva and Hollins were quickly separated after basically trying to rip each other's heads off, but after Villanueva was ejected, he absolutely lost his mind. He tried sprinting after the Cavs' bench to fight Hollins, but was held back after trying hard to get away. He then signaled at Hollins to meet in the Cavs' locker room area, and ran down that tunnel in that direction, again while people tried to hold him back.

Here's video of the scene:

Understandably, they take that sort of stuff seriously at the Palace following the Pacers-Pistons fight in the stands years ago. But part of me wishes Villanueva got away and his fight with Hollins continued. That was going to be some super crazy shit.

Back with more Jose Canseco material! And this time it's not about his insane ways for once.

Instead, it's about how he is going to manage and play for the Yuma Scorpions of the North American League(not affiliated with MLB or MiLB). His twin brother, Ozzie, will be the bench coach, hitting coach, and play for the team as well.

Here's more about it, from the Yuma Sun:
After three years of different measures that haven't helped brighten the attendance numbers for the Yuma Scorpions, North American League president Kevin Outcalt is trying a high-wattage solution.

Outcalt said the league is set to announce today that Jose Canseco will be named manager of the Scorpions and will play for the team. His twin brother Ozzie will be bench coach, hitting coach and also play.

“I think it's exciting for Yuma,” Outcalt said. “It's going to be a lot of fun. Jose is a very accomplished player, he has a lot of sway in the media and in pop culture, and he's bringing that to the city. It will be a good team and a fun time at Desert Sun Stadium for the fans.”

Canseco, who hit 462 home runs in 17 seasons in the big leagues, played and managed in Laredo last year under general manager Jose Melendez, who the Scorpions announced as GM on Saturday.

“There's the close relationship he has with Jose Melendez,” Outcalt said. “He played for him last year in Laredo, and there was a lot of interest to continue to work with him. Also, we've had Jose in the league before in 2006 (with the Long Beach Armada). He's very good with the community and the fans.”

Canseco should raise interest in the Scorpions, who have seen their attendance drop over the past three seasons and rumors fly about the team leaving Yuma. The team is owned by Diamond Sports and Entertainment, which had ownership stakes in the former Golden Baseball League and the current North American League, which was formed this winter when United League Baseball, Northern League and GBL merged.
Oh the things lower level professional sports leagues/teams will do to try to get people attending their games.

Look for the Scorpions' players to "magically" grow massive muscles and get dumber by the second after listening to the advice of the Canseco brothers.

Thankfully for the Blackhawks, they still had a way of getting into the playoffs after the game. They needed the Minnesota Wild to take down the Dallas Stars later in the day. And the Wild, who are not in the playoffs, were able to do so.

As you probably know, Milton Bradley is a gigantic asshole. He's a clubhouse cancer, he whines constantly, he's a dickhead to fans, he's a dickhead to women, etc.

He's also been a shitty baseball player(but was one of the best hitters in the American League with the Texas Rangers the season before) since he was handed a 3-year/$30 million contract from the Chicago Cubs in the offseason leading up to the 2009 season. Bradley's currently on the Seattle Mariners after being acquired from the Cubs in a trade prior to the 2010 season. In that 2010 season, he'd go on to hit .205, with eight homers, 29 RBI, and just a .641 OPS. He's off to a rough start this season as well, with just one RBI and a .658 OPS in 35 plate appearances.

So, with all of that being said, it's understandable why Bradley is going to draw the boo-birds regularly. And he's sick of it.

In fact, he's so sick of it, that he's using earplugs while he plays to block out the boos.

Here's proof, thanks to @bubbaprog:

What a pussy. Stop being a ginormous asshat, show you're worth at least 1/100th of that contract with your performance on the field, and maybe the boos will slow down a little bit. Until then, you should listen to those boos, realize why everybody dislikes you, and learn from it.

But that won't happen. Milton's going to keep blaming everybody else for everything that he's caused, as he's done for his entire 12-year career in the majors. That's why he'll continue to be the biggest asshole and biggest waste of talent in the league.

On my Cubs blog, The Friendly Blogfines, I recently posted a picture of a guy wearing a customized Cubs jersey with "Favre" on the back. Why anybody would customize a Favre baseball jersey, especially in a city where he's never played for their football team, I will never understand in a million years. There's not a single good explanation for it.

So, I couldn't believe that. I figured I wouldn't see another customized jersey nearly as bad anytime soon. Then I came across this picture on Buzzfeed:

Wow. I mean, wow.

If you don't understand the message he's trying to provide with his jersey, other than "I'm a giant douchebag", it's about Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg(#37), who is out for the season after needing Tommy John surgery.

As fun as Strasburg is to watch, part of me now doesn't want him to ever return to pitching in the majors, just to make this guy look like an even bigger douche(if that's possible).

Oakland Raiders wide receiver was arrested in Florida on Sunday for possessing Viagra without a prescription and resisting arrest.

Here's more on it, from The Gainesville Sun:
Gainesville Police Officer Thomas Harrison said he spotted Murphy's Cadillac Escalade at 100 SW First St., with the stereo playing loudly. Harrison said he told Murphy, 23, to pull over, but then Murphy continued driving to a city parking lot, where he and his passengers got out of the SUV and walked away.

Harrison flipped on his lights and ordered Murphy and the passengers to stop. Harrison said Murphy refused to present identification and demanded to know why Harrison stopped him. Harrison said Murphy continued to refuse to show his ID and so Harrison attempted to place him in handcuffs, but, he said, Murphy refused to put his hands behind his back. It took three officers to place the 6-foot-2-inch, 180-pound NFL player into custody.

Harrison said Murphy consented to a search of his vehicle, where officers found a “non-labeled prescription bottle containing 11 individual pills later identified as Viagra.” Murphy could not provide a prescription for it and allegedly told the officer that he had peeled the label off of the bottle “because he did not want his girlfriend to know he had a prescription for it.”

Man, these are some rough times. We have a horrible economy, earthquakes, tsunamis, expensive burrito prices at Taco Bell, and now we have guys getting arrested for Viagra possession. Ridiculous.

I mean, arresting a dude for carrying around some harmless pills to aid his dick problem? Come on.

Look coppers, the dude's just 23 and an NFL player. Of course he's going to either avoid a prescription or take the prescription label off. Most guys popping those blue pills are old farts that are going to keep their mouths shut about it anyway. What do you think a young guy that's also a popular NFL player is going to do?

If his girlfriend(especially if they ended up breaking up eventually) or somebody around the NFL found out that he can't naturally pop a boner, that information could spread like wildfire. That would've been highly embarrassing for Murphy.

Well, now the cops have managed to embarrass the hell out of Murphy, while arresting him at the same time for something that I think most guys in his situation would've done. What an incredibly lame double whammy.

I totally get the cops bringing Murphy into the station. They originally had no idea what the pills were, and he was resisting arrest, which probably made the cops think he had painkillers or something. But once they found out it was Viagra, keep that shit quiet. It's man code, which is bigger than the law.

I don't golf(except if it's of the Putt Putt variety of course). I love the sport and would play... if I were not God awful at it. I played baseball from the age of four through high school, and it was evident in the few times I tried golfing back in those days. Pretty much every time somebody saw me swing a golf club: "You play baseball, don't you?"

So I've pretty much given up on that. I have tennis as my "sport to play if somehow I make it past the age of 55".

But this four-year-old golfer's got it going on, and is going to have a fun time at the driving range for years to come it appears if he keeps up with his "Drill the ball picker golf cart guy" routine.

This guy in this video you're about to see did that. Yeah, it's a baby shark, but that's still a shark, bro. And as you'd expect, it does not end well for this guy:

That's what you get for taking the baby dude out of the water. It's just trying to swim around and chill out.

No doubt that shark will remember that. Ever seen the Jaws movies, dude? The shark kept chasing after that same family year after year, all over the world. Okay, so maybe that's a little far fetched, but I wouldn't chance it. You don't mess with fucking sharks.

A Few Things...

Posted by Matt Clapp | 4/03/2011 09:22:00 PM

So my laptop's hard drive is shot. Not cool at all.

The super geeks at the Best Buy Geek Squad are going to fix it, but they're waiting for me to get the Windows recovery disc(which they don't include with the fucking laptop purchases these days) from the asshats at Toshiba. I'm not happy about it. We're talking a potential two weeks or so without my baby. So if you're wondering why things have been slow around here the last couple days, that's a reason. I'm using my roommate's PC, but he's been out of town and could be home any minute. And believe it or not, I'm not going to go to a library or something to look up chicks in bikinis on a public computer. So who knows how much Thigh work will be up here in the next week or so. I'll do my best though, especially while my roommate is gone for work from the morning to evening, so keep coming back.

Also, I really fucking wish I knew how to do well with HTML shit. I changed the placement of the Facebook "Like" button on each post and all hell broke loose. The Twitter button was showing up all over the page on each separate post on the front page, so I lost that for the time being. If you're kind enough to link our stuff on Twitter, just go to Twitter itself and do that. My apologies, and hopefully I'll learn how to read the foreign language that is HTML soon.

Plus my Cubs had a shitty loss today to the fucking Pirates for the second time in three days, so I'm not in a good mood. We'll be updating the Cubs blog, The Friendly Blogfines, much more that Justin Agla and I run.

Also, I run theScore.Com's Buzz section on weekends so make sure to bookmark that. If you like our stuff, you'll like the stuff over there. Even if you're not much of a fan of my work, Andrew Stoeten and Chris Dart to a sensational job and find hilarious and awesome content from the sports world regularly to post about.

And make sure to bookmark AwfulAnnouncing.Com, which I also contribute for. It's an awesome group of writers over there and constantly great content about sports broadcasting.

One last plug... you can "Like" us on Facebook.

Cheers, and don't hesitate to send us in your tips, suggestions, or stuff like Thigh of the Week recommendations.
