LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The mother of New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain is jailed in Nebraska and facing a felony charge after being arrested on suspicion of selling methamphetamine to an undercover police officer in February.

Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs said Monday that 44-year-old Jacqueline Standley was arrested at her apartment Saturday night.

Beggs said she allegedly sold 1 gram of a substance believed to be meth to an uncover officer for $110 on Feb. 11.

The substance tested positive for meth in testing at the state laboratory.

She was charged Monday with delivery of an exceptionally hazardous drug. Her bail was set at $5,000, and she was assigned a public defender, whose name was not on her jail record.

Chamberlain found out about the arrest after arriving at Yankee Stadium on Monday night. He said he hadn’t spoken with her in a while.

“You’ve only got one mom, man, and you’ve got to be thankful for her,” he said. “I still love her.”

And The Toughest 2009 NFL Schedule Goes To?

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2009 by sportsguru09

Unfortunately for my best friend D. Mott, the Miami Dolphins have been awarded the toughest road to the Super Bowl in 2009. See their schedule and analysis below…

Miami Dolphins 2009 Regular Season Schedule

Sept. 13 at Atlanta Falcons
Sept. 21 INDIANAPOLIS COLTS
Sept. 27 at San Diego Chargers
OCT. 4 BUFFALO BILLS
OCT. 12 NEW YORK JETS875
Oct. 18 Bye Week
OCT. 25 NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Nov. 1 at New York Jets
Nov. 8 at New England Patriots
NOV. 15 TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
Nov. 19 at Carolina Panthers
Nov. 29 at Buffalo Bills
DEC. 6 NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Dec. 13 at Jacksonville Jaguars
Dec. 20 at Tennessee Titans
DEC. 27 HOUSTON TEXANS
JAN. 3 PITTSBURGH STEELERS

Right off the bat, just looking at the scheduled opponents for Miami outside of the AFC East should give all Dolphins fans the chills. They get Manning and the Colts, Titans, MoJo Drew’s Jags, T.O.’s Bills, the high powered Saints, L.T.’s Chargers, and the Matt Ryan-led Falcons. All I have to say is yikes and may God help you Miami! Even worse, only their games against Indy and New Orleans are at home. Every other brutal matchup is away from Dolphin stadium. Wow, this is worse than the Steelers’ 2008 NFL schedule. And as a side note, I know Steelers fans are happy because they got off the NFL’s toughest schedule schnide they’ve been on the past few years…

Toughest Home Game for Miami to Win Outside of the AFC East: Indianapolis Colts in Week 2 (Sept. 21st)

Toughest Away Game for Miami to Win Outside of the AFC East: At the San Diego SuperChargers in Week 3 (Sept. 27th)

The Game Likely to Destroy Miami’s Playoff Push: A letdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home in Week 10 (Nov. 15th)

The Game Miami will surprise people and win: Dec. 20th against the Tennessee Titans in Week 15 of the season to spoil Tennessee’s playoff hopes

Win/Loss Prediction: In 2009, Miami will finish 7-9 and not make the playoffs (sorry D Mott…)

Have The Yankees Found A New Ace?…

Posted in Major League Baseball with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2009 by sportsguru09

Ha ha, ha ha. New York, you provide me so much entertainment. Last night, as you were getting blown out by the defending American League Champions, the Tampa Bay Rays, you resorted to letting a position player, Nick Swisher (why not let Jeter pitch?!?!), throw your eighth inning. This was absolutely comedic. The only thing better? Jose Canseco’s pitching appearance years ago when he literally threw the ball all over the place from the mound. Swisher, who hasn’t stepped onto the mound to throw a pitch since his high school days, actually threw a scoreless inning however. He even struck out Gabe Kapler on his way to putting up his goose egg on the scoreboard in the bottom of the eighth! Shoot, after last night’s performance, the Yankees should renegotiate his contract and put him in the rotation. None of the rest of their starters can get anybody out, and this includes anyone, and I mean ANYONE, in their bullpen. Why not? What do you have to lose? Oh yea, the mystique and pride of the New York Yankees. Swisher’s debut was well worth a ticket to the field down in Tampa Bay…I know the Rays’ fans had fun…and I’m just jealous because I wasn’t there to witness it in person…

And for all you fellow Yankee haters out there, check out the hilarious video below…how embarrassing New York…

To Joba: “Silence Is Golden Big Guy…”

Posted in Major League Baseball with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2009 by sportsguru09

Not to continue my rant on the New York Yankee personnel, but….no wait, I WILL continue to rant on Yankee personnel. After a recent DUI arrest in Nebraska (of all states), Joba Chamberlain, a youngbuck and projected pitching prodigy in the Yankee organization, showed his true, sheepish colors and shared with the arresting officer his true thoughts on the city of New York. Hey Yankees fans, can’t you just wait to hear what he said? Huh, huh, huh? Well, it isn’t pretty if you’re a New Yorker or if you’re a life devotee of the Yanks. Yankees Devil Rays Baseball

During his arrest commentary, Mr. Chamberlain disgustingly blabbered about how much he hated New Yorkers and the city itself, especially its drivers who he proclaimed as “cutthroat” and “rude.” With a bottle of Crown Royal sitting in his lap, he continued to bash his own reputation by ripping on Hall of Famer Yogi Berra for his play and his height. What an idiot…that’s the last thing you want to do as a Yankee, or any other person for that manner. Who is Joba to criticize a Hall of Famer and make fun of him? Yankees Rangers BaseballThat’s a great way to get yourself booed at home games. So dumb…so drunk….so immature. In a drunken stuper, Joba continued to vow that if he walked out in front of traffic (which he should probably do now), that NY drivers would hit him. Well Joba, now they have a legitimate reason. Son, get your head on straight or the Big Apple will eat you alive. Many talented players have succumb to the pressure of Yankee stadium and its fans, just add Mr. Chamberlain to the list.

And in an even more classy detail, Joba was coming home from a local strip club when he was given the DUI and a ticket for speeding…..in NEBRASKA?!?!? Apparently he doesn’t have good taste either….grow up dude….Keep your big mouth shut, go out and pitch and prove to the baseball world why you’re considered the greatest thing on the mound since sliced bread. Otherwise, go sit on your fat butt at home, play video games, and drink yourself into submission so no one ever has to hear from you again, especially New York Hall of Famers. I would love to be there when he talks to Yogi face to face…I hope that ecstatic convo ends up on YouTube.

Let’s Buy Victories? Don’t Be Ridiculous New York…

Two contracts, $340M, and two previous all-stars. Where does that get you? A 10 to 5 loss on Opening Day 2009 to the up and coming Baltimore Orioles. Yesterday, the New York Yankees got to debut and hopefully show off (which they didn’t to the delight of O’s fans) two new mega-stars that they paid an arm, a leg, a retirement, a savings account, all your property, their soul, and more for…if you get my drift. oriolesAnd of course, to all the baseball world’s liking outside of New York, they fell flat on their face. Chubby Checker Sabathia and Mark “Don’t Throw Me A Curveball PLEASE!” Teixiera provided nothing to help New York in Baltimore. Teixiera went 0-for-4, leaving 5 men on base and CC got hammered by a young, energetic Orioles squad led by Brian Roberts and Adam “I’m Not Pacman” Jones. Who saw this coming? Well, most of us did. The O’s have recently had the Yanks’ number during the regular season. This is just more proof to the idea that money CAN’T win championships, even though the New York Yankees and the Steinbrenner family try to every year. All the pompous NYY management simply wants to do is flex their financial muscle and literally buy everyone and everything out. But as we saw last year with the Tampa Bay Rays, sometimes it just doesn’t matter how much you have. When you have talent and a team who WANTS to win and actually plays hard, things happen the way you want. However, this Yankee ball-club is full of overpaid, overpraised mediocrity (outside of Jeter and A-Rod – but he takes steroids so who knows) who is promoted by ridiculous New York devotees in a city that would boo the Easter Bunny this weekend if he showed up at the ballpark. All I have to say is, “Hey New York Yankee fans, hope the new stadium’s nice to ya”……

Yes, this is just one game. But for all of us Yankee haters, we hope this is more of a hilarious preview of the Yanks’ season to come. And this, of course, is yet another appropriate opportunity for a funny YouTube video ripping on the ‘Da Yanks’…..enjoy….
