Doldrums

by

Well, we are now in the “doldrums” as I call it. The time between the end of the football season and the beginning of the next one. Sure, there is baseball, lawn fairies, and cycling – but you know. It still sucks.

Still, the Spring Classics always get me fired up and start in just over a month, and we have the Tour of Qatar and the Tour Down Under to keep us busy as well. We will see if that doper Tom Boonen can defend his classics from last year vs. the next great doper. This was easily the greatest finish of last year in the classics as the home town hero Tom Boonen won the Tour of Flanders (Ronde van Vlaanderen) and the crowd went wild.

I will put up a new thread as conditions need.

    …The Madness starts again March 2nd vs Montreal…

    Lawn Fairies…If you’re a soccer player then it’s obvious.

    …If you’re a hater, then I guess you have to be there…

      Fuck the Sounders. Fiya gonna win it all…AGAIN. I assume we will have our standard gentlemen’s sixers on this as well as the Flubs/Brewers.

    …Indeed…The “Fiya” are hot, so to speak…

    I’ll take the bet, DFM. You always pay and you could care less about MLS…

    …I will convince you, someday. I’m proud to say that EVERY “Lawn fairy hater” that has gone to a match with me is now a fan—-I think…Hell, does Sk8 count?

    …All-in-all, It’s the most boring time and sport ever, just avoid it…

      Happened to me in France last year in the race. Got behind an enormous crash early and the front of the peloton rode away. Me and ten other guys worked together to make it back to the main field, but it happened AGAIN. There was no way we had enough energy to catch the front of the race again. Day over, besides some frog crashing into me on Plateau de Beille as the cherry on top.

    Sad note during the doldrums – Bears finally cut Johnny “Motherfucking” Knox.

    It was a foregone conclusion that he’d never play again after that horrific injury against the Chickens in 2011, but it is final now. At times he was a frustrating WR, but his good plays were amazing. He had 4.2 speed, and made the probowl as a rookie for his return skills. He was the closest thing the Bears had to a decent receiver for a decade until Marshall came into town.

    I’ll tack some highlights on to this comment so we can all re-live the Johnny MOTHERFUCKING Knox experience…

    I am pretty sure that Knox was the first person here at kfil to get “motherfucking” in between his first and last name. Correct me if I am wrong. If that is true, we need to keep the standard high. No more Kahlill Motherfucking Bell.
