Time Warner News- He’s more than just a reality TV celebrity.  “People expect me to do something,” said Duane “Dog” Chapman. “Do you know what I mean?”  Chapman, better known as Dog The Bounty Hunter, and his crew are following the manhunt for the two escaped prisoners from Clinton Correctional Facility.  “The reward out there is good,” he said. “Somebody’s going to make some money to provide some information.”   Chapman said his website has been receiving two tips an hour about the whereabouts of escapees Richard Matt and David Sweat. Their investigation stepped up last week after U.S. Marshals placed the convicts on the 15 Most Wanted List.  “Once they put them on the top 15, then we’re after them but you’ve got to be very careful. You can’t go up there and jump in the cops’ crime scene or go through the cabin and look for stuff. You’ve got to be very, very careful not to step on anybody’s toes,” Chapman said.


This reminds me of back in 95 as MJ watched Scottie Pippen and the Bulls start to fall behind teams like the Knicks, Pacers, and Magic.  Dog is just throwing on the 4-5 and trying to lend a hand to arrest a couple of very dangerous guys.  The only difference from his show is that this isn’t bounty hunting some guy that missed his traffic court date in Hawaii.  These are two cold-blooded murderers that were able to outsmart the system and escape from prison.  If those guys see Dog The Bounty Hunter, they will definitely murder him and nobody wins in that scenario.  I don’t think any of us can handle losing Dog The Bounty Hunter and Steve Irwin in the last 10 years.  They are the Washington and Lincoln on the “Weird Job Reality Show Mount Rushmore.”



Game recognize game.  Chicks funneling beers and cool cops usually mean a magical night is ahead.  Meanwhile the last few times I have been at Citi Field, there have been cops busting balls about drinking and not a funneling chick in sight.  So congratulations, Philadelphia.  This Gif and Always Sunny are fantastic.  But the other 99.9999999% of things about your city stink.  Oh yeah, cheese steaks rule too.

I love everything about this video.  It calls out the subway for what it really is: One of the worst places on Earth.  The only beefs that I have with Johnny T are that his accent is a little extreme and he is a spineless Yankees fan.  But his rules were very accurate.  Here are a few that Johnny left out:

1. If all the subway cars of a train are full except for one, DO NOT GO IN THAT CAR.  Because there is a dead homeless person inside that smells like shit.  Actually smells like shit is wrong.  They smell like dead homeless person, which is a very unique smell that you will never know (or forget) until you actually smell it.

2. If you are going on the 7 train, you will be swarmed by Asians the same way NYC was swarmed by killer bees in the Wu-Tang Triumph video.  Just close your eyes and protect ya neck.

3. Do not ever look a street performer in the eyes. Their lifeless, soulless glance will actually make you think about paying $1 for that absolutely horrific rendition of Jingle Bells.  You must put your headphones in and glue your eyes to the floor the second that glorified pan-handler asks for everyone’s attention.

And while Johnny T did a bang up job, we can all agree that nothing beats Kneehigh Park when it comes to learning about life in the city.

I admit this one hurts as a Giants fan, but when you lose to the 1-10 Jaguars, the gloves have to come off.  And if you didn’t read that headline in your head with the voice of the NBA Jam announcer, you did it wrong.  Now we just need the people at the Daily News and the Post to start coming up with Jim Harbaugh puns, because he is absolutely, positively coming here*.





To view the soundboard, please go to (Flash must be installed for soundboard to appear).

I started this labor of love earlier this year and couldn’t be prouder of it.  You have some of Mike’s famous catchphrases, classic jingles, and famous tirades all on one site.  So take some time away from the cubicle today and play around with the soundboard.  If you don’t, it would be an uttah, uttah disastah.

Unfortunately due to the nature of Flash, the soundboard is not viewable on iOS devices and any other devices/browsers that do not support Flash.  But if you still want to get access to the sounds, go to Mike And The Soundboard Lite.  Thanks to @KFCBarstool for the background image and for many of the sounds.  Enjoy!



Capital New York New Yorkers are no longer allowed to smoke electronic cigarettes in any place where smoking regular cigarettes is prohibited, including bars, restaurants, offices, parks and beaches.

The amendment to the Smoke-Free Air Act, a 2002 law, takes effect today and means that electronic cigarettes are now treated the same as regular cigarettes.

The bill was one of the last signed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and was passed despite objections from some who claimed that electronic cigarettes help people quit smoking regular cigarettes.

Well, if you weren’t already smiling on a 70 degree day in New York, you should be now.  Because they finally banned E-Cigs from bars, restaurants, and other public places.  Hey, I understand being addicted to something just as much as the next guy.  Seeing a commercial for some new incredible fast food item turns my brain into drunk Roger Rabbit, straight up FIENDING food that is among the worst stuff man has ever created.  But I have always HATED smokers.  Going to bars in college would lead to a stack of laundry that smelled like a chimney.  And who really wants to do laundry in college?  Or ever, really.

Anyway, for whatever reason, the people who smoke electronic cigarettes seem to be even worse than regular smokers.  I don’t know if the e-cig has something in it that appeals to people that have the Toolbag strain in their DNA, but it sure seems like it.  So to all the e-cig smokers, best of luck finding another way to get your nic-fix in New York, because my tax dollars finally worked for me today.


CBS New York- Bill Buckner became the punching bag for Red Sox Nation after botching that little roller up along first in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. But believe it or not, now he’s best friends with the man on the better end of that play. “Bill and I have become very, very close,” Mets fan favorite Mookie Wilson told WIP radio in Philadelphia on Wednesday. “We’re really the best of friends. As good a friend as you can have. … I think I’ve learned more about Bill since both of us have gotten out of the game (than any) ball player I ever played with.” …The Mets, of course, went on to win the World Series in seven games after Wilson’s ground ball bounced through Buckner’s legs to cap off a legendary rally with New York facing elimination in Game 6. Wilson and Buckner, improbable BFFs, will appear together Saturday for an autograph session at the 94WIP Philly Sports Expo. “He is a great, great person,” Wilson said. “We enjoyeach other’s company and we have a lot in common, a lot more than you would think. And it’s just been great.”

This story is fantastic because the thought of Mookie and Buckner just shooting the shit all day long cracks me up.  Actually, if instead of promoting an autograph show they were promoting a reality TV show, I would set the DVR immediately.  Imagine Mookie and Buckner trying to reconcile broken relationships in the sports world?  Tonya/Nancy, Kobe/Shaq, hell even Manning/Vanderjagt would all be able to follow the example of Billy Bucks and The Mookster.  I always thought Buckner  got kind of a raw deal because there were about 1 million things that went wrong for the Sox in Game 6, but his E-3 will be the thing that lives in infamy.  He was banged up, probably shouldn’t have been in the game, and likely wouldn’t have beat Mookie to first base even if he fielded it cleanly.  But he was a gamer who laid it all out there for the team and never made any excuses.  When a fanbase is as tortured as the Red Sox fans were, everything gets magnified.  It’s nice to see that the Boston fans lightened up on Buckner after winning a few World Series, but that doesn’t mean those 18 years in between weren’t pure Hell for him.  I don’t know where I would place him on the “Hated Infamous Sports Goat” scale, but he was definitely at the top with Steve Bartman and Scott Norwood.  Anyway, I’m still holding out hope that this kicks off talks for a Mookie/Buckner reality show.

PS- Buckner’s Curb episode was golden.  Dude has acting chops as strong as his stache.
