Golf to have sport privilege revoked?

13 Apr

golfsport.jpgJust one day after Angel Cabrera captured the Masters, rumors are circulating that the Gaming Association of Sports is considering revoking golf’s right to call itself a sport.

“After seeing a considerably overweight individual such as Cabrera win the most prestigious championship in the game,” said Mack Dixon, G.A.S. President, “it’s clear that we need to re-assess whether or not golf is a sport. You obviously don’t need to be an athlete to win this thing.”

According to reports, G.A.S. is tinkering with the idea of slapping golf with the “game” label, rather than “sport.” This will put it in the same category as Darts, Pool and everybody’s favorite lawn game, Jarts.

“Yes, we are considering this change,” admits Dixon. “After all, what makes it any different than pool? In both games, you’re trying to get the ball in the hole. Golf just takes a little while longer.”

Update: The Max has learned that G.A.S. is also toying with the idea of revoking the sport privilege to the following “sports.” Do you think they should be considered sports?

  • Fishing
  • NASCAR
  • Archery
  • NHL

On the flip side, we are also hearing the following events may soon earn the “sports” label:

  • Beirut (aka Beer Pong)
  • Wiffle Ball
  • Marco Polo
  • Flashlight Tag
  • Rock, Paper, Scissors

Which of the below events most deserves to be called a sport?

Here’s the newest set of questions that have been occupying our every
thought. Let us know if you’re thinking what we’re thinking.

  • ned.jpgWho’s gonna tell the Netherlands that they misspelled their own name on their WBC uniforms?
  • Now that Joba Chamberlain had a good start (against the Reds Tuesday), can we all stop worrying about if he’s going to be any good this season?
  • Should we instead focus on CC Sabathia getting knocked around by the Tigers today (sarcasm)?
  • Did you know that if a WBC game goes into extra innings, baserunners are automatically placed on first and second base? No joke. Sounds more dumb than the NFL’s overtime rules.
  • When will NFL teams stop giving Terrell Owens opportunities? Poor Trent Edwards.
  • Is it OK that we lost just a little bit of respect for Lawrence Taylor after watching him on Dancing with the Stars?
  • If Sean Avery isn’t going to be the same controversial Sean Avery, shouldn’t the Rangers just send him packing … again? No sense in employing a bruiser if he’s gonna act like a girl.
  • Why aren’t you following us on Twitter?

Here’s the newest set of questions that have been occupying our every
thought. Let us know if you’re thinking what we’re thinking.

  • manuelmind.jpgDon’t you think Jerry Manuel should at least get one Spring Training game under his belt before naming a kid as his starting left fielder?

  • We understand that the firing of Rangers’ head coach Tom Renney is news
    right now, but do we really have to listen to New York sports talk
    radio hosts talk about hockey, especially since they have absolutely no
    clue about the sport?

  • Should we really care how much money Jim Calhoun is making?

  • Is there anything more overrated than the NFL combine?

  • Are we bad people because we base our dislike for Mickey Rourke solely on his silly appearance?

  • When will people start to recognize .OPS as the correct way to assess a batter’s ability (instead of batting average)?

  • Are you as disinterested in the WBC as we are?

Randy Moller is our boy, blue

If you haven’t heard a Randy Moller goal call yet, what are you waiting for? The voice of the Florida Panthers makes John Sterling sound like Bob Uecker’s color guy in the Major League movies. Enjoy this Randy Moller goodness:

Verdict: Montreals retro jerseys way too loud

2 Feb

Hey Canadiens: would you mind turning down the volume on those jerseys?

Throw back or not, this misuse of materials should be sanctioned by the NHL, or at the very least, the fashion police. Where are you when we need you, E! channel? Honestly, when fans’ eyes throw up numerous times during a game, it’s time to shove those ugly jerseys into a burning barrel and forget they ever existed.

canadiansuglyj450.jpgOn a serious note, don’t these jerseys make you believe Montreal used the guy on the “Get Out of Jail Free” card from Monopoly as the inspiration?

Honesty is the only policy … for sports fans, anyway

21 Jan

The best thing about sports — besides the actual game, scouting cheerleaders, nine innings worth of downing beers and munching on hot dogs — has to be when fans express their irritation when something goes wrong.

Ashley Simpson doesn’t lip sync for once, and she pays for it at the Orange Bowl:

Barry Bonds and his expanding head hears it from the crowd during an at-bat.

WWE fans get a “boring” chant going during yet another lame attempt at something funny from WWE “writers.”



Carl Lewis embarrasses himself in front of Michael Jordan and Chicago
.

Sarah “Hockey Mom” Palin has few fans in Philly.

Yankees fans can be tough — they’ll even boo the ones they love.

Nationals fans give Dubya the same reception he’d get from 77% of U.S. citizens.

Beware of Averys get-rich-quick scheme

4 Dec

Hockey players have to buy holiday gifts too, which puts the newly out-of-commission Sean Avery in a pickle as the time to drop cash on Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa presents rapidly approaches.

But Avery is as innovative as he is annoying and lewd. Rather than sit around and collect dust during his hiatus from the Dallas Stars for vulgar comments geared towards one of his ex-flames (Full story), the former New York Rangers’ instigator has opened his own dot-com business that promises to help guys have their former girlfriends hate them half as much as the entire United States hates Sean Avery right now.

We copped this card from a dude who was passing them out on the street near MSG the other night. Now that we think of it, that dude could very well have been Avery.
