ALL HE DOES IS HOLD!!!! #78 people. Watch his holding ass the whole game because the refs won't be.

Well the culmination of a long and productive season comes to an end tomorrow.  There are two ways this thing is going to end. Us becoming champions or looking like to biggest slap dicks in the PLFA. There is no middle ground of wow they played hard, or they just came up short. If we don’t win everyone will say The Crew is the biggest joke in football. With all the shit we have kicked up over the past three seasons we better win this damn game.

Now on the flipside this game will be the first nationally televised game ever in Poland. What makes this special is that this is the match up that everyone wanted. The past 3 games have become legendary were the each out does the one the precedes it. So this game was the one that is supposed to show the country of Poland how spectacular and special this sport is. But what I have come to realize that Poland is the land of where your plans mean shit to God (even though this is the most Catholic place in Eastern Europe). Poland is the Bermuda triangle of good intentions. Poland is where well executed and well prepared plans come to killed and discarded like a Craigslist escort. So I believe in my heart of hearts that someone is getting blown out. This game won’t live up to the hype. Which is unfortunate because with a reach of 7 million homes they deserve to see good football. Now which way is the blow out going to go. I can’t really decide. It can honestly go either way and turn ugly fast for both teams. I am not even trying to be diplomatic what so ever but MY LORD!! You have not experienced the odd quagmires that have become part of my everyday life. But I am certainly not trying to be on the losing side of that shit so I will be bringing my A game. So I have my usual game day predictions. I have been mulling this over for a few weeks. After last week I have hit my stride defensively. My pass rush is rolling on all cylinders and pretty much I have been clogging up holes like a Crave Case from White Castle.  Not to mention its a nationally televised game and that usually raises my level of play.

up to this point I have finished the season (including one playoff game) with:

43.5 tackles, 23.5 Tfls, 11.5 sacks 

That is pretty much on par with my goals for this year. Unfortunately I only played 6 out of 9 regular season games (Lord could only know what they would have been like).  I lead the league in tackles per game, TFL’s and Sacks obviously. So how do I cap off this final game. Well I am only 3.5 sacks from my magic number of 15!!!!!

Game Predictions:

6 tackles, 5 Tfls, 4 sacks (I don’t do half sacks), 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 1 touchdown, 1 blocked kick and Final MVP.  OH BEHAVE!!! (Austin Powers voice)

I think Euro approves of those stats

So tomorrow is the first and only game of the playoffs. Its a rematch of last years semi’s.  The Seahawks are a more improved team than we have seen before which is a good thing because they will walk in the door with more confidence and hence do more things that will allow me to to do better. Confidence makes QB’s stay longer in the pocket and makes the O Line believe they can dominate the line of scrimmage. I love that. Usually after about 5 rushing attempts that run game disappears then I get to pin my ears back and just attack. Well maybe not this week. We are adding something different so that I get a more involved.

Last game they played it smart. Quick passing and screens which pretty much limited my chances to make big plays. It was actually my worst statistical game of the season but when someone game plans against you you need to reinvent what you are doing. Tomorrow I won’t allow them to run away from me this time. I will do what I can to get my face in the mix. Its the play offs of course and that is when the big time players step up.  Not to mention there is one thing to be a dominant player during the regular season but I want to be the most dominant player in the post season. As everyone knows DEFENSE wins championships. Seriously I haven’t been more excited for a game this season than this one. Just because of the different things I will be doing i am interested to see how I handle this. So lets get to predictions.

7 Tackles , 4 TFLs, 1.5 sacks, 1 interception, 1 touchdown, 1 fumble recovery, 2 blocked kicks

The attitude of an athlete is one of constant competition. It is hard to convince an athlete to question their ability or convince them that someone is actually better than them.  I had to write about this because when you win a close game there is only one thing that both teams agree on. That the other team is shit lol.  The winning team believes they should have and could have put up more points and the losing team is saying the other team is garbage and they would have won if it wasn’t for one play.  To be honest both sides have legitimate cases to feel that way. Now I am sure someone is going to read this and take it the wrong way. But who cares its really how we think.

Shit the whole game during crunch time both teams are getting each other pumped by yelling “Fuck them. They scared. They are a bunch of bitches. They suck. Lets go out and bust these hoes ass”.  Shit I know I that’s what I say all the time. Lehigh beat us in college 4 years in a row and I still believe they were shitty. But I’m an unapologetic heel with social issues.

But at the end of the game you always think of that one play you could have made. Really the best thing to do is keep believing that other team isn’t shit so it keeps you motivated. Real good teams bounce back from close games and deliver some serious punishment to the next team to prove that the previous week was some bullshit. But thats what the athlete spirit is about. To never doubt yourself and always look to achieve more.  Thats one thing I do appreciate about growing up in the states where our sports culture really defines us and molds us into the people we are today. Without this disdain for believing that someone is better than us then we would seriously quit at most things. But we all have the belief we can knock any wall down.

Entering my 3rd game I am getting close to that number one spot. Luckily we are playing a pretty balanced team that actually doesn’t view me as threat what so ever which is honestly a blessing. Why you ask? Well because they will run the ball to my side, run drop back, and probably will leave one person to stop me. But after last game I took a step back so I need to get my ish together and come back strong this game.

I was interviewed after the last game and I was asked what do you think is a perfect defensive game and I responded with “Its hard say. For me zero to negative rushing yards, no completed passes, 3 turnovers and 7 sacks”. Of course it was translated into me saying that “Aki says their defense will give up no yards, no passes and get seven sacks”. Oh how I love the media here. But since its been put into the ether as they say in The Secret the goal is out there to attain which leads into this weeks stat predictions:

7 tackles, 4 tfl’s, 1 FF, 1 FR, 2.5 sacks

Oh yeah this is supposed to be our rivalry game slash biggest game of the season. So I guess I am an ass for even thinking I will have a good game. That Aki guy. I just don’t like him. He’s such an arrogant prick. Updates after the game. Oh yeah here is the link to the game if you want to watch.

Watch Now All 8 Episodes here

If you have an HD TV this show goes to a whole new level. Since I cannot enjoy the simple pleasures of watching tv I have to search all over the internet for illegally streamed shows. I’ve become quite good at it where I even started to watch some of the dumbest movies on the planet just so I can.  But I stumbled upon the  BBC Human Planet Series and I have been so impressed with the filming of the whole thing.  Great narrating interesting stories and for all our differences these people living in remote islands, jungles or deserts face the same exact problems we face in the metropolitan.

If you enjoy seeing how different cultures survive in obscure areas of the world or just like seeing amazing landscapes this is definitely worth sitting back and watching on a lazy day.

The most memorable moment in one episode was when two guys who live in the jungle spot a bee hive 5 stories up in a tree. They get excited because they can finally get honey. The one guys says “Man I have to go up there and get that. My wife has been pissed because she hasn’t had honey in a long time”. So dude climbs up a 5 store tree (free hand) and gets stung about 100 times just get a small amount of honey for his family. I guess no matter where you are from women will always get you to do crazy shit. So I have a link above where you can watch all 8 episodes for free in your spare time. Thank me later.

My First game back was about 3 weeks ago and I had pretty lofty goals to get back in the league leader mix in the PLFA. The stats finally came in and I came pretty close to my goal. I ended up with 8.5 tackles, 5.5 tfl’s, 2.5 sacks and we won 72-0.  I failed to produce any forced fumbles or talk shit.  Bialystok’s QB was tough as hell. Dude kept getting up after every hit like he was Rodney King. I respected that enough and kept my quiet.  Of course I regret it now because the teams moronic camera man and his jackass buddy had a whole lot to say ,which I found out after the game.

Rule #1: Don’t ever be nice to anyone on the football field because you will always wish that you would decapitated them afterwards.

Interesting tid bit of info. The trip was a 23 hour round trip.

Seahawks vs The Crew: Look at that pad level.

Second game was a week ago against former top 3 team the Seahawks. Going against a pass heavy team I figured I was going to add a sack or two but I actually fell short on everything. I finished with (guesstimate) 4 tackles, 3 tfls, 0 sacks and we won 62-7. Very pedestrian numbers and admittedly a lot of it was my fault because I stayed primarily on the right side of the line and they ran quick game, screens, rolled and scrambled the opposite way. I should have been more proactive in moving around more so they couldn’t predict where I will be.

The Crew vs Devils: Trust. No one wants us to win this game.

In two games I believe I have actually moved myself into the top 3 or 5 in sacks and it is a matter of possibly 2 more games before I am the leader in both Sacks and TFLs. It will be extra motivation this week because we play our crosstown rivals, The Wroclaw Devils where a young man by the name of Adam Matryba is the actual league leader in sacks. For me getting the most sacks is a game within a game. So now I need to make sure our starting Left Tackle has a hell of a game and I need to get 2.5 to 3 sacks to move to number one.  It should be an exciting weekend. Wish me luck people or wish me failure. Just as long as I’m in your thoughts.

 

MMJB NYC EVITE

Since my time in NY is drawing to a close (36 days and counting) I am getting back to experiencing the greatness of this concrete jungle we call New York. Tomorrow night at the Hiro ball room will be a concert by the Money Making Jam Boys (Black Thought of The Roots, Dice RAW, Truck North, P.O.R.N. and STR).
