The Daily Drool – Drool Amnesty: Artur Boruc

14 Apr

artur-borucOMG, this was one of my favorite Amnesty suggestions. Watishista drea said “Oh and Arthur Boruc. Yup. I think I have this REALLY twisted thing for him because I can imagine him shouting Arthur Boruc’s Rage List from the Dirty Tackle as foreplay. TMI?” No, girl, not at all. I can totally get with that scenario especially if he yells about paint thinner and the corn and plays a Taylor Swift album (with The Little Mermaid on a muted TV in the background). That sounds PERFECT!

Screw The Puppy Bowl, We’ve Got The Puppy Clasico!

4 Apr


Check out Dirty Tackle’s hilarious write up on the similarities between the Puppy Clasico and the real thing. I don’t like that they tied the puppy goalkeepers up to their nets, but I guess if they didn’t, they’d go free range like Iker and give us all heart attacks (but even Goal Puppy managed to leave his area – he just took the goal with him).

Sheesh! We Can’t Get A Break Lately, Can We?

18 Sep

While awaiting the team, the Evil Bunny Bus was given a ticket in front of the hotel by an overzealous meter maid. Let Brooks Peck tell you all about it, while getting off a laugh out loud zinger at the end over at Dirty Tackle. Let’s hope our luck is better in the match, eh?
