Tale of the tape

The Giants Losing To Carolina Vs. Little Mac Losing To Glass Joe In “Punch-Out”

Philadelphia Eagles vs  New York Giants Next Generation Video Games Unveiled

Giants Losing

Little Mac Losing

Charlotte, North Carolina. Oooo! It’s supposed to be lovely there! Opponent’s Hometown France. FRANCE. FRAAAAAAAA-
0-2 Opponent’s Record Before Match: 1-99
I don’t know if it’s predictable, but cripes is it boring. Predictable Offense? He’s got about 5 punches to dodge, so yes.
(unprintable) Motivational Halftime Speech? “Join the Nintendo Fun Club Today, Mac!”
Throwing to Victor “Look at my stupid dance, I’m a jerk!” Cruz. Secret weapon? Pressing “Start” when he has a star punch.
“Disappointing is not a strong enough word.” Post Loss Quote? Give up? Retire? Start training, make a comeback!
Maybe we can finally stop having the stupid “Which Manning is Better?” debate. Future Implications? He’s doomed against Von Kaiser - nevermind Bald Bull or the second fight against Don Flamenco.

The winner is

Philadelphia Eagles vs  New York Giants
Giants Losing
4 out of 7

Gloriously losing once again, the boring, listless Giants drop one to Little Mac and Glass Joe, 4-3. Having watched my beloved Patriots drop two awful Super Bowls to them, I gotta say: this defeat is pretty good.

    Tale Of The Tape: A’s $1.2M Coliseum Rent Vs. $1.1M Craig Gentry Salary

    The current proposed lease extension for the Oakland Athletics at the O.co Coliseum calls for the team to pay $1.25 million in rent for the 2015 season, more than most Bay Area studio apartments, but a pretty skimpy dent in a Major League Baseball operating budget. By Comparison, backup outfielder Craig Gentry is being paid $1.15 million this year. So what kind of return on investment are the A’s getting? Let’s compare.
