There is No Rhyme or SB reason for Nuthin .. #10 Fountain Blue Biogenesis Brothers

It's January 16th, it makes no sense to really be thinking about softball. 


But the truth is that for all the deep shit I've been through lately that my enthusiasm for the game has not waned, Rather it is stronger than ever. And as long as I'm breathing "softball ain't dying on my watch."

The Front page of my blog reads 

"My name is Ric and I write about the real, the funny, and the absurd things that go on while playing New York City softball" 

and over the years I've become the epitome and the prime example of what happens when the power of the blog falls into the wrong hands, and inspires comments, thoughts, and in some instances change.

I've created a community and with great power comes absolutely no responsibility for politically correct ass kissing content as I remain the king of nonsense and controversy. I'm a modern day Rebel with a cause, who hasn't caused a revolution, but rather has promoted an Evolution of Thought. 

My job here isn't done, cause there's no rhyme or no reason for anything on January 16th. I could be mad, happy, silly, insightful, whatever, fuck it, as I just feel like talking softball or at least using softball to connect with you the reader. So it's time to spread the word cause I'm promoting my passion til I'm passed out. The best way I've usually promote my passion is through my corny addiction to Top Ten's, 
some times I've taken it too far, but it was usually always form the heart, Usually I list an entire Top Ten in every posting but today for no rhyme or reason this will be a first in a ten part series where I add a Top Ten # every day. I don't know where this will end, hell I barely now where it will begin, there's no method the pad and pen, the only message that I have to say is, I'm back at it again

Top Ten Softball No Rhyme or Reason

10 . Fountainbleau Connection ... Bio-genesis Boys... 

You have to be living under a rock to not know what's going on with Alex Rodriguez. We all know using Steroids and other PED's is foul. But is it me or why has everyone missed the softball connection with Arod.

Arod was rumored to get anti-aging assistance at the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami

Well Softball Legend Dio Jackson

used to been seen a lot at the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami. 

Recent picture shows Dio seems to have gone through anti-aging treatments


.... There's no method the SB pad and pen .. see you manana

Letdown Blog PosterChild... 45 years and counting

After some of my more deeper emotional blogs I'm due for Letdown and when your searching for a Letdown who better than to blog about than my beloved than the NY Jets

They are the Poster Child for Letdowns

45 years and counting

What do they Jets have to do with softball? Actually football has a lot in common with softball, but we will leave that topic for another day. Let's back to football and in my best All Bundy voice
2 things I'm sure about is:
(1) I will always play softball
(2) And the day after I die the Jets will win the Super Bow
Let's get to the State of the Jets. They just went 8-8 and acted like they won the Super Bowl
Did I Miss something?

8-8 only yields apathy from me and reminds me of a favorite quote of mine from the Pop queen of controversy Madonna "“ have an iron will, and all of my will has always been to conquer some horrible feeling of inadequacy…My drive in life is from this horrible fear of being mediocre.” 

An 8-8 record to me is Mediocre and is not inspiring. Rather it is the worst record you can have in the NFl as you are right in the Middle. In the Middle sucks, your not good, your not bad. In baseball you wanna be strong up the middle defensively, but in football you never want to be in the middle in terms of your record. No playoffs. No Championship. No top draft pick. Nada

The Jets spin is that they over achieved and now are 40 million under the salary cap plus 9 draft picks.The Truth is Ryan did deserve to come back next year b/c the team is closer to 4-12, than 8-8 as there are numerous teams with worse records than us that are better or just as good as the Jets - Steelers, Lions, Falcons, Ravens, etc. We still don't have:
  1. A Proven QB
  2. Any WR's
  3. Any TE's
  4. Basically No Offense and a Head Coach who doesn't know how to run an offense
  5. Our defense wore down towards the end because our offense was so bad.
  6. A Smart Secondary as we traded away Revis. Cromarte is not a leader and will never take a pay cut. He's gotta go
  7. Speaking of Leadership. That's what we need. On the field play makers who make no excuses and lead by example

It's been 45 years and counting. I'm sick of mediocrity. It's such a Letdown
