I’m coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show.
I’m coming out
I want the world to know
Bout Joe Fla-a-co!

Awwww yeah!  Woo!  Feel it??  That’s the good stuff right there!  Now, I know some of you are gonna say, “Take it easy. It was only the Browns.”
Say what you want, but I’m keeping it positive.  The birds were hitting on all cylinders Sunday.  They needed to make a statement – not just to the Browns but to the NFL.  Statement made.
Playing the Browns reminds me of the time in high school when I had to wrestle a kid with no legs.  He had them during weigh-ins but when we hit the mat?  Nubs.
If I won?  Big deal.  I beat a guy with no legs.  If I lost?  I’d never hear the end of it.
I was damned if I did and damned if I didn’t…and I’ll be damned if I was gonna lose to a kid with no legs.  I pinned him in seconds!
And that’s exactly what the Ravens did to the legless Browns, limiting them to 186 total yards.  They took away the running game, the passing game, special teams AND Brady Quinn’s job. Probably took Mangini’s job too.  Did you see the look on Derek Anderson’s face after his second pick?  I had the same look on my face but for completely different reasons.
This game was important for the Ravens and this was the first time we’ve played the new Cleveland Browns without a member of the old Cleveland Browns (Matt Stover) on our team.  Joe Flacco and the offense put their foot in Cleveland’s brown ass and never let up.  479 yards of total offense, the D picked up 4 INT’s, and did you see the two laterals?  No team in the NFL plays defense like the Baltimore Ravens.  And now we have an offense to go with it.  Joe Flacco is the real deal. Baltimore, we finally have our QB!
This Sunday, it’s up to Foxborough to face Belichick and the Pats. If you wanna rank among the elite, this is the dragon you need to slay.

Since I’m a transplanted Ravens fan living in Los Angeles, there was no way I was missing this weekend’s game.  It was the home opener for the San Diego Chargers and Ray Lewis made sure the birds flew outta there with our second W of the young season.
This is my third Ravens vs. Chargers game in San Diego and each time I’ve headed down to tailgate.  This time was no different.  My crew was in it to win it!  Now, I’ve done my share of tailgating and San Diego…you need to step it up!  Flip flops and sushi??  That’s what you’re bringing to the table? Unacceptable.  Tailgating is all about claiming your spot on the asphalt and throwing down!  I’ve seen people steaming crabs in Baltimore, I’ve seen guys BBQ bison in Buffalo, hell, I’ve even seen a pregnant woman gut a deer in Pittsburgh!  But sushi?  That’s a damn shame.  And I LOVE sushi!  I’m a seafood guy.  I love fast women too…but I’m not bringing one to dinner at my grandma’s house.  Feel me?  What I’m saying is, there’s a time and a place for everything.
Check out some of the shots I got in San Diego.

WHERE’S THE BEEF?
On our fuckin grill. I told you we weren’t messin around. Guess what WASN’T on our menu?
BEEFED! (web)

CHEF WHAT?
Not sure what this “chef” was cooking up but I’m sure as hell not eating anything he makes. I overheard him say something about a “secret ingredient” and I gagged. Where’d he wash his hands after he was done?

QUALCRETE STADIUM
This thing reminds me of the Roman Coliseum. Only older and worse.

SWOLLED UP
LT was kickin it with us in the parking lot for a few. This is what his ankle looked like an hour before game time. Had to sit him.

VISION QUEST
I’m overlooking the fact that somewhere, a blind person is bumping into shit because a guy wants to make people laugh in a parking lot. Made me laugh.

TRAVIS TWITT
I can’t believe people still make the conscious decision to wear and maintain their hair like this. I gotta be honest, the whole mullet craze was a little too much. Got old REAL quick. But there was a point. I’m guessing this guy is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to a lot of phases in his life: cars, women, work, child support, the credit card payment for the tickets he just charged. Pretty sure I’m 5 for 5.

ROLL OUT
A cooler you can drive?? I love it! I almost cooler-jacked this fool and took off with his wheels. Seriously. I HAVE to get one of these. I’ll ride it everywhere.

HIDDEN REFRESHMENT
I’ve heard of a pup tent, but a pee tent? This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen at a game! This is proof of evolution! No more long lines for the spot-a-pot. This thing was awesome and I gave it a run for its money. Thanks to the Chargers fans who let me use their tent to relieve myself liquidly. And a special shout out to the poor son of a bitch who had to empty it.
