Dry Island’s New Victory Song, “Bring Out the Bottles,” is Really Bad

Knock knock?

Who’s there?

My replacement.

The Flyers have apparently replaced Mac Miller’s Knock Knock as their victory song with Bring Out The Bottles, by Redfoo, one half of LMFAO.

Gew.

Think of the song as a Pitbull meets house music meets auto-tune meets a seizure. It’s pretty terrible. But, as with all things Flyers, most of us will nod our heads in approval about 12 hours after being initially disgusted. It’s a conditioned response, cultivated by almost 40 years of disappointment. I HATE THIS. WAIT. NO. ED SNIDER. I LOVE IT. WHO NEEDED MIKE RICHARDS ANYWAY?

Listen to the song after the jump. Somewhat ironically, the music video looks like it was shot at the Kings’ Stanley Cup celebration party in Las Vegas. And yes, I'm trolling you.

Penn State Quarterback Matt McGloin Says He Didn’t Get “Punched Out,” He Was Merely Knocked Out

You know, when I watched the Penn State-Nebraska game following a week of chaos at Penn State, I said to myself: You know, myself, if I had to choose one player on that field to punch out, it would probably that bonehead quarterback who keeps underthrowing his receivers.

Between that reality and the Spencer Pratt hair seen in this video, I’d say that not only was I right in my desires, but Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin’s receivers feel the same way.

On Saturday, McGloin and wide receiver Curtis Drake got into a skirmish in which Drake reportedly knocked out McGloin… and sent him into a seizure. 

But not so fast, says McGloin.

McGloin had this to see about the incident:

"Well, I didn’t get punched out, so get your facts straight… I just told you guys what happened. 

Initially I hit my head on the ground, like I said, as we were on our way to the ground, like I said, I don't know what else I can say, it was a freak accident. I smacked my head, I don’t remember anything else. Whether or not another hit was thrown while I was on the ground or not, or what the seizure came from, maybe just hitting my head on the right spot, um, like I said, I don’t know, but I did suffer a seizure from it. Um, but, like I said, I feel pretty well right now."

 

Yeah, he got punched out. And if he didn’t, he flipped the Pussy Card on Drake for bringing up the possibility that he was hit once he was already knocked out.

Penn State Quarterback Matt McGloin Reportedly Knocked Out by Teammate

Kyle Scott - December 17, 2011

We are… knocked out?

In more unfortunate – yet unrelated – news for Penn State, quarterback Matt McGloin was knocked out by wide receiver Curtis Drake during a fight after practice today. 

Nate Bauer of Rivals.com was once again all over the story. Here's his report:

This was two players who had been jawing at practice. Not related to anything else. From source, 'It happens, but not like this.' To recap from source: Drake/McGloin jawing in practice, Drake initiates making amends in locker room, McGloin takes exception……McGloin punch/shove (unclear), Drake takes him to floor, pop to the chin, McGloin 'lights out.'

 

That report was also confirmed by Ben Jones of StateCollege.com. Students from the Daily Collegian, Penn State’s student newspaper, are tweeting that a police report was filed, too.

The Patriot News reports a slightly different story. They acknowledge the incident, but say McGloin was hospitalized for a “possible seizure." 

University police are investigating the incident and expect to release a report later tonight.

The incident is a disagreement between two football players, nothing more, but Penn State doesn’t need any more image problems right now. Having the quarterback of its football team get knocked out by a teammate is certainly not going to help anything.

Beaver County Times Writer Tells Radio Station That Sandusky May Have Been “Pimping Out” Boys to Donors

This is going to get much worse before it gets better.

Last night, Sports by Brooks Tweeted an ominous message:

I can confirm there will soon be new, major allegation involving child sex abuse in Sandusky case. Told tonite it could come before Saturday. If what I was told tonight about the details of the new allegation in Sandusky child sex case is true, it will horrify the public. This is a deadly serious matter. Keep the victims in your thoughts. Cannot emphasize that enough. In your thoughts.

 

Yeah, he’s a blogger. But one who has made a living exposing college football scandals— and he usually winds up being right.

Perhaps this is what he was talking about. 

This morning, Mark Madden, the Beaver County Times writer who chronicled this whole disastrous situation – in April – said the following on WEEI:

"I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen," Madden told John Dennis andGerry Callahan. "I hear there's a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation — and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can — that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak."

 

Oh boy. Buckle up, folks, this is not for the squeamish.

We won’t focus too much more attention on it now, since, as Madden admitted, it’s a rumor. Then again, no one paid much attention to Madden’s April conjecture, either…

Somebody Really Needs to Buy Juan Samuel a Stop Sign

Ryan Howard was out by 600 feet

In the first inning of last night's game, the Phillies missed a chance to increase their lead when Juan Samuel ran Ryan Howard into the third out at home.

My first thought was that RyHow should have ran over Marlins catcher John Buck. But when you watch the replay, it's clear that The Big Piece stood no chance.

Sammy is like the sports equivalent of Jeremy Renner's character in Hurt Locker– Fuck it, just go. If it blows up, it blows up.

Piece got a good chuckle out of it.

Lou Williams “Hopes” to Return for the Playoffs

Ryan Gillon - April 4, 2011

Louiggy

"So… you wanna go meet AI at Friday's?"

It may be a frustrating close to the regular season for the Sixers, as a couple of players are banged up from injuries. The most concerning, however, involves their sixth man Lou Williams. He strained his right hamstring on Friday night.

Hamstring injuries are touch-and-go, so it's always hard to tell how long a player an land on the bench, but Lou shared the following with Kate Fagan of the Inquirer, and it's not encouraging:

Fagan

Williams is averaging almost 14 points a game and he's a fourth-quarter monster for the Sixers. This would have been an easier injury to handle a few months ago. Timing is a real bitch.

With a playoff spot already clinched, the Sixers will have to hope that Williams will be able to get enough rest to play his usual role late in games when the postseason rolls around.

Here's to "hoping".
