If you like and watch UFC and boxing like I do, you have seen this and wondered what in the hell Cat Zingano was thinking Saturday night when she took on Ronda Rousey. If you do not watch UFC and other brands of fighting, I will give you a quick rundown. [Read more…]

WTF Weekly: NFL and LA

The NFL and LA go together about as well as the lady screaming “but I love him” and her drunk husband on a good episode of Cops. The love is there and so is the passion but it just can’t work without someone getting assaulted. If you didn’t hear this past week in an extremely odd press release the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders released a joint statement saying if improvements weren’t made in the near future to their playing facilities, they would move to LA together and build a stadium. Here are a few reasons that just won’t work.

The most obvious is what brings our WTF for this week. It is the awful artist’s rendition of what the stadium would look like. I mean look at this thing.

I mean it looks like a cruise ship. It literally looks like I am about to climb aboard the Carnival, grab a $7 beer and head to the casino because I forgot my damn suit for the captain’s dinner. Come on, guys. Do you really want that to your left as you are making your way out of south LA? Be honest folks, it just ain’t that pretty. [Read more…]

WTF Weekly: Kanye West

To give all you wonderful readers a little behind the scenes look into how my brain works I don’t go looking for things to bitch about in this post. I watch enough TV and live sporting events that I generally see something once or twice a day that does not involve great decision making. When I do, I make a small note somewhere (back of napkin, post-it-note, under the sleeve on my arm) literally anywhere that I can refer back to when I make it to my laptop to brainstorm. So this was a little bit of a slow week. I had a few ideas but I want to give you the best. This is your weekly serving of filet mignon here on the interweb and I’ll be damned if I am serving you beef tips. So there I was Sunday night just watching TV and wondering what to write about when boom. This piece of awesomeness fell into my lap.

WTF Weekly: Chris Paul Edition

By Jay Cox
PSDC Writer

Welcome to my weekly dose of WTF here on Project Shanks. With the NFL season over and football gone for the next six months (I know, I know it is truly sad time in America), your favorite writer gets to talk about other things. Things that will hopefully keep you amused or at the very least curb your boredom for five minutes while we all wait on football. This will be a weekly article dedicated to some WTF moment in sports or pop culture or just whatever I feel like ragging on.

This Week: Chris Paul

Okay, I am going to come to Paul’s defense here since it has been a dog pile on him by the media since Friday. If you are unfamiliar with this situation let me set the stage for you. The Clippers were trying to get the ball up the floor in a hurry. They inbounded and the baseline ref didn’t like the way it was done. She stopped play at which point Chris Paul asks her about it and then she T’s him up. I’m not here to discuss what is and what isn’t a technical, just on what happened in the aftermath. [Read more…]
