Chargers on 3rd long snapper of 2010

After David Binn tore his hamstring, and was placed on IR, the Chargers figured they had a viable solution in signing nine year veteran James Dearth to handle the long snapping duties.  Well, not exactly.

Well, Dearth injured his foot in practice, and was placed on IR.

The Chargers signed veteran Ryan Neill, formerly of the Rams to handle their long snapping.  Neill, was undrafted free agent out of Rutgers, played with Buffalo in '07 and '08, and nine games with the Rams last year.

Also, since the game is blacked out in Southern California, try these links to view the game.

Douchebag of the Week: Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the greatest fighters around these days, but apparently homeboy has taken one too many blows to the head.  If you haven't been following the news, Mr. Mayweather has gotten himself into hot water.

First, there is the infamous racist rant Floyd filmed about rival Manny Pacquiao, in which he called Pacquiao a "midget" several times.  He also said that once he beats the Pac-man, he was going "make some sushi rolls, and cook some rice."  Floyd also stated, "We're going to cook him with some cats and dogs."

Mayweather gave the normal insincere, fake apology that anyone does, when they run their mouth, and say something stupid and racist.  Whatever chance the so called "superfight" between the two boxers is probably ruined, but this isn't why Floyd wins the award.

Mayweather is facing a total of eight criminal charges, including domestic violence and theft.  Floyd allegedly showed up at the home of his ex-girlfriend and her three children(Floyd owns the house) rose hell.  His ex claims that Mayweather hit her, threatened her, and threatened to beat two of their children.  She also accused him of stealing phones that belonged to her and their children.

While its too early to jump to conclusions, Mayweather does have a history of violence.  In 2005 he was convicted of an unprovoked attack against two women outside of a Las Vegas nightclub.  He received a suspended sentence of one year in that case.

These charges are very disturbing.  Anytime you threaten a child, you deserve whatever punishment the Judicial System can toss his way.  The guy has a reputation as a thug, and he's beaten women, so things don't look too good in this case.  He has more money than God, so I doubt jail time will be given in this case.  Once a thug always a thug.

Floyd Mayweather, felon, woman abuser, and his newest title, Douchebag of the Week!

My little Internet radio show, Kevin Says, hits the airwaves Thursday at 6PM Eastern/3PM Pacific.  Join me as I take phone calls at (760) 454-1106, and your e-mails at  We will talk about the week in the NFL, the top sports stories of the day, plus pop culture takes, and anything YOU folks want to bring to my attention.  Let's get our biggest audience yet!  Spread the word kids.  Listen Live or on demand at  See you folks tomorrow!


5 actresses I'd like to see naked

Have you ever watched a movie, and thought to yourself, "Man, that chick is hot, I wonder what she looks like naked?"  I do this almost every time a film fails to capture my interest.  I think what that sexy actress looks like with her top off.  Perverted?  Of course.  Natural, I think so.  So for your reading pleasure, I submit five actresses I'd like to see naked.

Jennifer Love Hewitt:  I have had a crush on this girl since she burst onto the scene in Party of Five.  I've seen her in movies like, I Know What you did Last Summer, Can't Hardly Wait, and The Tuxedo.  Yet we haven't seen that giant, glorious rack unwrapped.  Dare to dream fellas, Dare to dream.

Katherine Heigl:  She became relevant because of Grey's Anatomy, then quit.  She had a huge hit in the 2007 comedy Knocked Up, then trashed it.  Yes, this chick is a huge diva, and a stupid bitch, but you can't deny hot.  We should hope her next role is in an erotic thriller.  Do it for us creepers, Katherine.

Emma Stone:  Emma has the distinction of being in two of my favorite movies:  Superbad, and Zombieland.  She comes across as the girl next door type, and reminds me of Lindsay Lohan.  Her latest film, Easy A, has garnered very strong reviews.  Make it Easy T &A and show us your goodies, dammit!

Megan Fox:  Although she is so hot its retarded, one has to wonder how much longer Fox can get work.  Jennifer's Body, a film I thought was vastly underrated, was ignored by moviegoers.  Jonah Hex was one of the biggest flops of the summer.  I guarantee a big hit if Megan shows of her twins in her next role.  She recently married former 90210 hack, Brian Austin Green.  Yo Megan, do you fuck anyone with talent?

Jessica Biel:  The girl played a goody-goody basketball player in 7th Heaven, then graduated to making terrible movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and the A-Team.  Biel has one of the hottest bodies in all of Hollywood, we want more Biel!

Ok, fellow perverts, who do you have on your list?

Charger Notes: Binn to IR

The Chargers placed their longest tenured player on injured reserve today.  Long snapper David Binn, who is the Chargers last link to the 1994 AFC Championship, was lost for the season, due to a severe tear of the hamstring.  Binn, had played in 257 consecutive games, and considered one of the best long snappers in the game.  Binn also dated Pamela Anderson in the last few years, not a bad job for a player most NFL fans have never heard of.

The Chargers signed long snapper James Dearth, who was with the Jets in the preseason.  He is a nine year veteran.

It also appears that the Chargers home opener will be blacked out on local TV.  The Chargers have about 8,000 unsold tickets.  So it looks like you will have to find the game on a pirate Internet site.

Band of the Week: After the Burial

Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, After the Burial has raged an assault all over the metal world.  After the Burial features an eight string guitar attack, that will likely leave you bleeding from the ears.  Combine that with a crunching, double base drum attack, throw in the guttural growls, and high pitched shrieks of vocalist Anthony Notarmaso, and you got a solid, very technical metal band.

After the Burial have toured extensively behind their latest release, 2008's Rareform. They have toured with artists like Darkest Hour, Bleeding Through, Suffocation, and Parkway Drive.  They are band that is definitely worth your time.  Check out After the Burial, the Kevin Says band of the week!

Comparable bands:  All Shall Perish, Darkest Hour, Between the Buried and Me.

Lineup:  Justin Lowe : Guitar
Dan Carle : Drums
Trent Hafdahl : Guitar
Anthony Notarmaso : Vocals
Lee Foral : Bass

After the Burial:  Berzerker, Cursing Atkenhan

Being Absent-Minded sucks

I like to pride myself on being a rather easygoing, mellow person.  I usually don't get too worked up about things.  In fact, my biggest pet peeve, are people who start arguments for completely trivial things.  I've seen my stepmother rip my Father a new asshole, for simply dropping an ice cube on the floor.  Or watching a friend's girlfriend cry because he noticed a girl with ridiculously big tits.  People need to learn to pick their battles.

Anyway, that's not what this blog is about.  Like I said, I really don't get angry and "freak out," but today I did for a couple of reasons.  First off, I lost my wallet.  Sometimes i go through my day on autopilot, and I really don't think much about what I'm doing.  So, when I went to get my wallet out of the jeans I wore yesterday, and they weren't there, I started freaking out.  Immediately I started to replay the events of the last 12 hours in my head.  Lets see, I peed, slept, went to school, peed again, and that's all that I could remember.  After searching for 15 minutes, I started to curse up a storm.  Couch cushions were thrown around like yesterday's garbage.  Walls were punched a few times.  It's a completely helpless feeling.  After a frenzied panic that lasted about 20 minutes, I finally found it, on the floor of the kitchen, a place that I checked at least three times.  "Whatever." I said to myself.  I found the damn wallet, and this ordeal of being a spaz was over.  I could get back to my regularly scheduled, calm demeanor.

I sat back down on the couch, and started watching the Padres game, and went back to normalcy.  Then, a lizard ran across my floor.  The little fucker snuck into my apartment last week, and crawled underneath the couch.  I was under the assumption that he made his way out of the house, but no, he had been underneath my couch all along.  As I saw him crawl across the floor, I leaped to my feet and tried to get him out of my house.  I grabbed a spatula and a cup from my kitchen, and tried to scoop him into the cup, and release him outside.  But the little bastard was much too quick, and crawled his way into the glass doors of my entertainment center.  I was going to try to fish him out, but my good friend, Mr. Cable Box, told me it was time to get my pasty, white ass to work.  Simple enough, I'll just grab my keys and go.  Well, more stupidity ensued.

I went to the end table, where I usually throw my keys on the way into the door, but naturally, they weren't there.  Fifteen minutes later, I still couldn't find them.  I looked on the floor, couch, I even checked the freezer and the trashcan.  I finally found them wedged inside of a magazine.  An hour of my life, wasted because I am too stupid to remember where I leave things.

Perhaps I should tie them around my neck, or have my wallet surgically attached to my ass.  Using my brain to actually remember where I put my things, clearly isn't working.

Chargers get BBQ'ed in Kansas City

Another year, another slow start.  The Chargers dropped their opening game of the 2010 NFL season, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs 21-14, in Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chargers got on the board first, with Philip Rivers hooking up with trusty Tight End Antonio Gates for a three yard Touchdown, and the Chargers were in business, up 7-0.

The Chiefs struck right back, with Jammal Charles streaking for a 56 yard run, in a play that made Eric Weddle look ridiculous.  Take better angles, my friend.

The much hyped Ryan Mathews made his NFL debut, and looked good early, and busted a nice 15 yard run, but was stripped by linebacker Derrick Johnson, and Brandon Carr recovered the fumble, setting up the Chiefs second touchdown, and gave them a lead they would relinquish.  Mathews finished his debut with 19 carries, for 75 yards.  Honestly, that's what I expected from him.

The electric rookie, Dexter Mccluster put the Chiefs up 21-7 with a 94 yard punt return, the longest the Chargers have ever allowed.  Watching Mccluster reminded me of Tamarick Vanover in the 90's.  Mccluster is a playmaker.

The Chargers battled back with a 5 play, 91 yard drive, capped off with a 59 yard touchdown reception by Legedu Naanee.  The Chargers pulled to 21-14, but could not finish the last two drives, failing to convert two fourth downs in the third quarter.  The Chiefs jump out to a lead in the AFC West.

Kevin Says:  Another year, and the Chargers are already in a hole.  Lose next week, and they will be in big trouble.  Overall, the Chargers were brutal on special teams.  Kassim Osgood, the three-time Pro Bowler, was sorely missed.  The Chargers defense overall was good enough, they only allowed Quarterback Matt Cassell to throw for 62 yards.  Philip Rivers just couldn't make a play in the end, the Chiefs did a wonderful job of smothering Antonio Gates.  Chargers get Jacksonville next week.

Key Players for Chargers:  Philip Rivers:  22-39, 298 yds, 2 TD's, 0 INT's, 98.0 QB rating.  Ryan Mathews: 19 Carries, 75 Yds, 3.9 Average.  Legedu Naanee:  5 catches, 110 Yds, 1 TD.  Antonio Gates:  5 Catches, 76 Yds, 1 TD.  Steve Gregory lead the defense with 7 tackles, and Shaun Phillips had the only sack.
