And as for the trade...we basically traded a 5th round pick in 09 for a 4th rounder in 13. Tallon wins again!

This, from the last post (I'm a little slow to catch up on Panthers news): As a Portland, OR resident, I've been to quite a few Winterhawks games and Seth Jones' presence on the ice was felt every time, not only as an offensive weapon, but as a giant at being in position. He was heads above the competition, both physically and talent wise all season long. Then I watched all of the games of the Memorial Cup with the Winterhawks. They got beat only twice and both times were against MacKinnon, once in the round-robin and once in the Finals. And holy crap, that kid just lit us up! Like nobody else! All season! Unbelievable, in fact. And Seth Jones rocked it against everyone else in the tourney and had great games, especially being paired against the top lines and always having a player on him. I cried a little for the local boys, and for my boy who was REALLY pulling for the Winterhawks and fell one game short. But deep inside I knew I was watching a future Panther...I just didn't know which one! Anyway, draft day should be fun, eh? Perhaps, like the Dolphins, the Panthers could be the off-season champs and land Lecav, too! Boo-yah! Go Panthers!

WHOOO!!!!! Heck yeah! I knew you could do it Hubey!! Wow! I let this slide off the radar. I knew he was nominated, but never checked on the awards, then got caught up in the Heat run that NHL left my head for a moment. Huge, man...huge! (ahem...getting priorities straight...still the worst team in the league with the #2 pick for a reason...cough, cough) Well, it's nice to be recognized at least. He did have a b*lls-out season with not much of a supporting cast around him. The dude that started with Tampa was rockin' it 'cause he was with Lacav and Stamkos then dropped off when he was traded to OTT and Gallagher and Staad had surges at the end. Hubey rocked it all season long at a high level...unheard of around here lately (fan since opening face-off). He definitely deserved it. On the the draft!! Where either MacKinnon or Jones will be slam dunks.

OK, let's see...our draft...we got guys who are talking about their motors, a couple of team captains and some projects that may or may not pan out. Sounds like par for the course. I can't say I'm jizzin' in my robes over the picks, but I can't say I'm horribly offended. I mean, it's not like he called anyone's mother a whore this time, so at least we got that going for us. Anyway, maybe he's just coming out of his shell/closet. Just saw a heart-warming, touchy-feely interview with Mando that makes the cock-les of my heart tingle, showing once again that one man's lust over his fellow's fellow can eventually, through some strange 7-degrees of Kevin Bacon kind of thing, lead to peace for all mankind. Ommmmm. Poor Tebow-woe...woe woe. Ahem...Jax did NOT draft a QB...he'd certainly put a lot of fine Gator chick asses in those seats...might even save the team. At least the Jets are still the laughing stock. Seriously, fuck those guys. So all in all, just go fucking win some games, and all our phins will be up. #fuckinyeah

Frankly, this monk is a hopeful monk. My low expectations have been far exceeded. So I love how we are finally getting talked about in a non-"they-REALLY-suck" kind of way. Even though some of it is negative, ie: overpaying, off-season champs BS, at least we are getting some much-due press and WE are driving the conversation, rather than being the butt of the jokes. Now, how much these dudes do to make us a better team and actually compete, that's another story. But I'm hoping Philbin had something to do with these decisions. I have to give some credit to the people who hired Philbin, as I think he did a pretty good job last year with the shit he had on that team. Now this year, he should have some more choices on what to do on third down, especially now that Mr. Pussyhammer is gone (and NO, the WR screens only work AGAINST us, Coach Sherman!). Anyway, even if its only the Off Season champs, its nice to be a champ of something. At least we're not fucking Jets fans. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Seriously...fuck those guys. Go Phins.

Got my robes all tied up in sweet anticipation for...nuthin. ...for what MarksBros said. I'm sure of it. My expectations for this franchise are so low, they are hanging beside my re-incarnated, 1500-yr old nut sack. But low expectations bring happy surprises, so FUCKIN SURPRISE ME JEFFE!! On another note, what the fuck with the commenting system?!? Can we all just NOT reply to anyone and just make a new comment? That way my old eyes, tired from pouring over lost tomes of ancient Buddhist text, can easily digest me some Dolphins dickjokery. Go Phins!

The 49ers lose and Ted Ginn, Jr was the last person to touch the ball...any correlation? Yes, the whole, "could have drafted Flacco & Kaepers" thing kept popping its ugly head last night. The good news is that every time either team did something good, I stood up with fists in the air and screamed, "GO DOLPHINS!!" with copious fist-bumps to my fellow monks watching the game. Ahh...a deep breath into the off season. //sound of air rushing from a balloon. Go Phins!

Beautiful! So I was at the last game and may actually get a chance to go to this one, too. I'll post pics if I do. Some notable notes from this past game: Did anyone see where Fasano spotted the ball for the refs? He caught a pass across the middle, then got up and looked at the sideline ref and spotted the ball on the hash mark...the ump came up and bent down to reposition the ball, took a glance at the side judge, then said, eh - good enough and just stood back up and walked away without touching the ball. Nice Fasano! The rainbow ball to Fasano for the 2-point conversion really DID take a full 27 seconds floating in the air. Looked like the Goodyear blimp in the stadium. The fake field goal was a fun call (one I actually called for when they didn't go for it on 4th and then lined up for the field goal...I was screaming "go for the fake!"), but damn, did that play suck Vishnu's golden teat. What a let-down. (a pun for those Momma's who breast-feed) Henne sure did look like himself out there. Which is to say, crying robot. Lasers all down the field and then sucking it up in the red zone. How 'bout that 4th down D! That's some good hope for the future. No sacks for Wake. In fact, that guy was on the sideline for most of the 4th quarter. WTF!?!? He wasn't in there for the most pass-obvious downs! Perhaps he was tired, but no excuses. He was also dropping back into coverage. ?!?!? Yeah, I know he wants to be a "complete" player, but I so wanted him to crush Henne. Hopefully they'll unleash him this weekend. And I think I have just doomed another person to a life of pain and anguish...my only begotten son. But it sure was fun to watch. Just to see the awe and wonder on his face when he walked up the stairs and out into the seats...when the flyover happened...when the '72 team was honored...when we scored...when we won...and most importantly, when we sang the REAL Phins fight song with the banjo and everything. In fact, the original composer and lyricist was actually THERE (fat and balding, but looking like he was having fun) and sang the song along with it in the 4th quarter. That was amusing! But ultimately, if we would have lost, it would have been for naught, and he would have left wishing we were at a 49ers game or something. Winning = fans. Period. Go Phins, Go away Ireland.

You people are beautiful and make me proud to be associated with y'all, even if only through the cyber-oneness that is our attempt to find our own inner-divinity through a combination of crushing other men into bloody pulps and enjoying bountiful tatas. Mmmmm...tatas! Where was I? Right...tatas. No wait, jeFIREland. That's it. Yes. Do it! Oh yeah, I'm in S. FL today and I'm going to watch the sad robot return and shrink Sean Smith's balls with his death ray. Damn, I hope this doesn't turn out like another Culpepper reunion...where he runs for a TD and then points to his knee to slam our dicks in the the waffle iron. But in this case, the robot with shoot lasers of deep balls all game (which he could NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER do with us) or hit us with tons of well-placed touch-passes (which he could NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER do with us). Then when he breaks 400 yds and 5 TD's, he'll point to his chest, letting us know, that the tin-man really DOES have a heart. He'll start to cry like Nipsy Russell from "The Wiz" and then will slam the panini press on our junk. http://youtu.be/MAS5flBTSwo 4 tickets, 4 rows up from the 2nd level rail on the 40 yd line...stubhub for $18 each. / *yeah for me! //sad trombones for the state of the franchise when ANY regular season game has such little demand for tickets. Go Phins! Go Away Ireland!

Unconditional love for all Phin Fans. Infinite patience for Phin bloggers. Sour-puss face at those with blog complaints...damn, y'all...its a fucking blog! Not like this has anything to do with real life. Get some perspective, folks. If the blog isn't posting, take a moment and look at those sad faces in the reflection of your computer screen that you occasionally call your wife/children/burden/whatever. Damn, y'all...its fucking football. Any of that REALLY affect your lives? Does following this blog put food on your table or pay for rent/mortgage? Please get a grip...I love all y'all, and let's keep an honest perspective. But fuck the Jets. Seriously...fuck those guys. Go Phins!

Mmmmm...it is a good thing I walk each day with such low expectations. That way I am never let down and always happily surprised! Today, in fact, I am not let down that we lost, but am happy the D at least made it a game. Joy! #wafflephindick Go Mammaries!

Where is the unconditional love, you fuck-heads? Buddha-damn! I mean, these cock-hats show no love. Really. Oh wait...we're talking about the Jets? Ohhhhhhhh. Yeah, never mind. Fuck those guys. Seriously...fuck those those guys. In an unrelated note, Rex Ryan really DID turn me into a newt with big feet. ...I got better. Go Phins!

Sorry Warthog...I got nothing. These guys just suck! I can offer only two things in these challenging times: 1. my unconditional love and compassion to all suffering Phin fans. 2. this here waffle iron It is interesting that in the Buddhist texts, they say "life is suffering". But in actuality, in its original language, "life" is a rough translation of "limp-wristed marine mammal". So we can see that the great chi and flow of life has been stacked against us for a few millennia or so. We also see in the great art of the golden age of Buddhism that the Durga-energy, that of destruction and clearing, is actually in the form of a red-haired beast with 9 eyes, 17 arms, a penis in the shape of Jeff Ross and a foot crushing a dude that looks faintly like Ray Feinga. In other words, we're fucked...and not in that "we're all going to an orgy and are going to get fucked!" kind of joy. No, we are all, indeed, locked with our wrists and ankles on that spinning circle adorned with balloons with a circus knife-thrower that's been chugging egg-nog and vodka all night, getting a blowjob from the snake-woman and wearing a Testaverte Jets jersey...THAT kind of "fucked". Damn. Think we'll draft a receiver with our first pick? Hopefully we can pick up a good slot guy who was a captain of his 1-9 AAA Moorhead State bullshit team. We can only hope. Go Ph... Aw, fuck it.

Well said, El Mocoso! And an excellent anal-ysis, CK!! I find it akin to the Tuesday Morning QB, without all the moral high-grounding and talk about teams other than the Dolphins. I prefer my football anal-ysis to be aqua monochrome! I, too, was pleasantly surprised to see Tanny with such a great week of improvement vs. the first week. I have my son as a witness that I called the Tanny rollout TD just before it happened. But his awareness kept surprising me...let's hope that keeps going against the fuckin Jets. Seriously...fuck those guys. And Bush, damn, was hitting that Raider bush so hard that he created a Anorectal Fistula so big he could run through it! (look it up, its pretty nasty.) Big ups to the man who just ordered some Guatemalan workers to convert another room into an Ass Closet. And boobs = good in the eyes of Buddha. In fact, my unconditional and universal love of boobies allows me to become One with the boobies. So come one, come two-at-a-time, come all boobies to me and allow me to become...ONE...with you. Ohhmmmmmmmmm...nom...nom...nom...nom... Go Phins!

We damn...no one is raining on my rainbow unicorn jizz parade. I'm going all out and predicting a miracle...'cause that's what I do: 11-5. Tanny wins one playoff game. he's the Rookie of the Year. Philbin is Coach of the Year. Wake has 16 sacks. Odrick gets 7 sack. that kid from UM gets 10 sacks. Misi just shows up. Sean Smith gets 2 INT's (I know, but I did say I was predicting miracles!). Bush rushes for 1300 yds and 5 new ass-hats. That new FB goes 15 for 15 on short-yardage 3rd or 4th downs. Clay gets 10 TD's. I get lucky with that Virgin Mary chick...finally! See...miracles, baby. You just gotta believe! Go Phins. //gets waffle iron and quietly sobs to himself.

Why you dissin' on monks? Wow...this one has be stumped. On the one hand, V-dog certainly wasn't putting his best foot forward. Didn't seem like too many plays he got dogged in the ATL game, but wasn't he part of the group of defenders that missed on a 40+yd reception? And doesn't he get burned on one of those a game recently (like everyone else)? True, he'll make a couple of picks a year, when not injured. But if the extra pics are really going to be bundled for a bigger trade now for a receiver (What about Fitzgerald? Think he REALLY wants Skelton throwing him balls?), then I'll say a "Vontae for Kick-Ass Receiver X" trade is OK by me. Its better to have a good offense around O-Tanny-boy than a good defense to just make the games close enough that he'll lose a heart-breaker. I'd rather a gun-slinging game to get the kid's confidence up. Besides, Vontae wasn't protecting Tanny's blind side or catching passes. I just worry that it'll be another "2nd for AJ Feely" kind of trade. [sad trombones] On the other hand, MOTHER-FUCKER!! I mean, we're REALLY gonna get torched this year! There's no communication back there, no one's talking during plays, confusion in the secondary, those 2nd and 3rd year guys (Jones, Clemmons, Carroll, etc) still are not better than fucking Tyrone Culver. And he's not even at the top of the depth chart, and wouldn't be on any other team, too. FUUUUUCK. And Dansby's evidently got his fuckin' bonnet in a bun. Wonder who the "Anonymous" vet really is...after getting slapped on the wrist for stepping out of line, he's gonna retreat to the shadows and sulk...quietly sowing discontent. Ahhh, Hartline, where is the great white wonder when you need him? We need a hero, like the kind that lady sung about in Footloose all those years ago! (yes, monks like Kevin Bacon) Oh well, there's always the old standby (and thanks to LoRder for the reminder, albeit sooner than I had hoped this season)... #wafflemonkdick Go Phins!

Sorry...it happened when I walked by him. My brilliance was shining so bright that it actually burned his lily-white skin to a crisp (no blasphemy intended, Ste. Lily). Good thing his girl likes the tanning spray...that shit also has sunblock on it. Ok, ok...who the hell am I kidding. It was a rookie hazing prank. Half-way through wife-y's application of the sunscreen on old Tanahide, I switched out the bottle of sunscreen with some tan accelerator. She never noticed because of the 13 Mai Tai's she just choked down (a bit of a lush, that one...but I digress). Anyway, now all we have to do is put John Jerry in against EarthkWAKE for a series and watch his blind/burt side REALLY get Tanned! Ahh...rookie hazing. Nothing like cock & balls shaved into rookie's heads. Fucking brilliant. Shit still cracks me up! Go Phins!
