So today marks Nicktgal’s first day of sports reporting in his young and probably short sportswriting career.
He is covering a football game, but has no experience or clue on how to “cover a football game.” He’ll probably annoy a coach, get no quotes, get the wrong quote, forget a quote, forget a name, chalk up the wrong the stat, get kicked off the field.
Hopefully his first article is better than a verbose piece of shit.

Nicktgal doesn’t know why he’s speaking in the third person right now. But wish him luck. And if you’re passing Hen Hud high school, please don’t point and laugh.


Athletic maybe?

A Chinese gymnast, while on his motorcyle, crashes into a truck.  But wait, he intentionally flips off his bike at the last second and isn’t only unscathed, but returns to check his bike.

Between that and those awesome Japanese baseball catches, something pretttyyyyy pretttttttyyyyy prettttttttyyyyy good is going on over in Asia.

Darrelle Revis has reached an agreement with the Jets! Eloquent Rex got the job done, good Rexy, have a doughnut.

This is the supermarket that stops me from constantly posting my wonderful thoughts for you to read. As you can see it is ghostly empty, it drains me of the minuscule creativity and motivation that I possess.

Next Post

Well now that nicktgal, hatten49, baldelli22, terseverse, or terse (not sure which one he prefers now-a-days) has “set the tone”, as he keeps telling me, i can finally post.

He has betrayed his promise that his posts will be supported by fact and history. Nicktgal accused the greatest Yankees first baseman since Lou Gehrig of using steroids. However, Tino Martinez has never once come up on a list of potential steroid users, let alone a list of actual users. Unlike Nick I like to support my claims, Mitchell Report.

I have never understood why Nick always talks bad about Tino when his favorite ball player is Rocco Baldelli. The two aren’t even comparable. Tino had a long successful career while Rocco struggled to even play. Sure Rocco has an incurable disease that stops his mitochondria from producing enough energy for his muscles to function properly, mitochondrial myopathy, but that isn’t an excuse. Anyway Rocco has become a totally irrelevant player.

Now that I have successfully defended Tino I can say a few words about the blog.

The blog is intended to produce a good laugh or two but at the same time it will offer some insight into a wide variety of topics, probably mostly sports. So check in once in a while. I can’t promise a consistent stream of posts but when we actually find some motivation to post something it will definitely be worth reading.

I will leave you with this weak spitting attempt probably caused by mitochondrial myopathy.

Before Julian, tinoman, tinomartnz88, tinomartnz67, or whatever the washed up old-timer-loving boy crusher feels like calling himself that day, and I begin, I would just like to inform any readers or future readers (if we’re lucky enough to have one of you) of the disparity and dichotomy in thought process and competence, and how it will be both apparent, and at points obvious.

The blog was initially created for casual sports chatter, although sports chatter doesn’t always remain casual and calm, and most of its discussion will revolve around sports related topics.  Come to think of it, this is the first post, so I guess this is as initial as it gets, so expect near-future sports arguments.  But it will also expand into any other weird rumination that floods the minds of Julian and I.

If we both argue a subject, or even just touch upon anything, it can be safe to assume that what I, nicktgal say, is both orginal, creative, and worth reading.  The argument will be both fact and historically supported, and will therefore be safe to presume both true and, ultimately, a good, well-informed statement from a good, well-informed (intelligent) person.

But if you read a post from the tinman with no heart, it will also be safe to assume that half of his argument will say things that are both intended to subvert and frustrate me, regardless of any obvious shame, and half of his argument will be uncreative with ideas lifted from others (if a sports related topic, probably someone like tim cowlishaw).

I just wanted to clear up this probably scarcely posted-to and probably ephemeral blog with a few strands of insight.


the more trustworty contributor,

nick, or (don’t worry, I will only call myself one of these two, not 5 names all way too similar and dedicated to a steroided first baseman) nicktgal
