Dick Rod Turns on the Tears

August 31, 2009

I am going to put my hatred from Michigan aside as I try to understand just what goes through the mind of Dick Rodriguez. Recently, some players and former players stepped forward and admitted to the Detroit Free Press that Dick Rod and his coaching staff had violated NCAA rules by making the team practice longer than sanctioned by the NCAA. At Dick Rod’s press conference today, he turned on the tears and was trying to make it look as if he were the victim. Please. Call it biased if you want to but I just look at him and immediately think jerkoff, coward, scumbag or just plain asshole. What has this guy done in the past that says there is no way he would do this? If the NCAA does find Michigan in violation of their rules, would Michigan have to vacate those 3 big wins from last year? 0-12? Yikes. Dick Rod was already catching heat from the Alumni Association and these allegations are just fanning that fire. That same Alumni Association will also be the biggest factor in whether or not Dick Rod stays for a third year at Michigan…

Andre Smith Finally Signs…Alledgedly

August 30, 2009

Twitter is now, more than ever, revolutionizing the way we get our most up to date sports stories. I don’t usually post on a Saturday, but this seemed like a must write post. Tonight, Chad Ochocinco posted on his twitter account page that first round draft pick Andre Smith has finally signed with the Bengals. I kept on checking with and to see if they have posted anything. Nothing. However, Trey Wingo and Chris Mortenson both responded back and forth with Ochocinco about the signing. I don’t know if its a good thing that The World Wide Leader in sports will now have to take a backseat to Twitter. The image above is from at appoximately 10:30 PM while the image below is from Chad Ochocinco’s twitter page at appoximately 7:45 PM.

Hump Day Hottie: Kate Mara

August 26, 2009

My first experience with Kate Mara was when I got to see her in the so-so “We Are Marshall”. She played Annie Cantrall, the girlfriend of Chris Griffen who parished in the plane crash. The next time Kate’s pretty mug was smeared on my TV was when she played Sarah Fenn, the widow of Bob Lee Swager’s (Mark Wahlberg) partner in “Shooter”. If I had to choose, Shooter would be 1 of 2 movies to play on a continuous loop at my house. The other being Never Back Down (see HDH: Amber Heard for reason numero uno). I also believe that Mara was 10 times the woman in Shooter than she was in We Are Marshall for one simple reason…Southern Accent. I have said it before and I will say it again and again; a girl with an accent can kill puppies and it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest. Moving on, does anyone know what Thunder Treats finds uber sexy in a woman? Knowledge of sports…or at least to have a good argument about it. It is safe to say that Mara knows a bit about sports seeing as how her mothers side of the family owns the Shittsburgh Steelers. I know what you’re thinking…ding ding ding, we have a winner…but there is more. Kate’s fathers side of the family own the New York Giants. So do you think her career will be a failure if she doesn’t win more Oscars than the amount of Super Bowl Championships by both teams (9 combined)? If so, then I think Kate should count being Thunder Treats Hump Day Hottie as the first notch on that belt. After all, what would you rather be announced as? “Oscar Award Winning”…or “Thunder Treats Hump Day Hottie…”? You decide…but the question is rhetorical, so it doesn’t matter. More Kate after the jump…

TT’s Hottest Tv Co-Star Contest : Emmanuelle Vaugier

August 25, 2009

Contestant #4

This week our first Canadian enters the contest. Emmanuelle Vaugier enters as Mia from Two and a Half Men. Mia has been absent from the show after marrying another man but is back to stir up some drama in Charlie’s life. Besides being a total babe, Emmanuelle actually has a pretty impressive resume with appearances in almost 70 films and tv series. She has appeared in many fashion and fitness magazine being no stranger to the gym, shwing. Along with Two and a Half men she just completed her third season of CSI: NY. She has also appeared in an episode or two of Supernatural, One Tree Hill, Monk, North Shore, Charmed and Smallville. We shouldn’t really recognize her in all of those because we shouldn’t be watching most of those…This is Thunder Treats after all. You should recognize her from Saw II when she stuck her hands in the razor box. All of at TT can think back to is 40 Days and 40 Nights when she showed her niblets and cheeks. Shes also appeared in some old school, low budget movies like Blond or Blonder and Suddenly Naked that she may or may not be naked in but everyone should Netflix, right now. Emmanuelle is also featured in EA’s newest Need For Speed Carbon game. Stay tuned to Two and a Half Men for Mia’s comeback.

Lou Holtz Isn’t Full Blown Crazy…At Least Not Yet

August 24, 2009

Don’t get me wrong, I was the first one to assume Lou Holtz suffered a minor stroke when he predicted that Notre Dame will be on top of the BCS this year and their #23 ranking was too low. But upon further review, he may have something. Notre Dame’s schedule this year is easier than Lindsay Lohan in a Vegas club. Their only real challenge will come against USC and Michigan State, both of which aren’t as strong as they usually are. They also play a tough Navy squad but I don’t see them letting themselves lose to them again. They have both Pitt and UConn back to back in November, but both those teams also lost a lot of key players to the draft/graduation. So there is a chance, albeit a distant one, that Notre Dame can pull together and go undefeated. So now we have Notre Dame undefeated but we also have Florida and Oklahoma (or Texas) undefeated as well. Hmm, I wonder which team will get the nod to play in the National Championship? I would rather see a 1-loss Texas or Oklahoma over an undefeated Notre Dame. Hell, USC would be more deserving even if they lost to Notre Dame. I’m pretty sure that Holtz actually forgot about Texas and Oklahoma when he muttered this absurd proclamation. The fact of the matter is that Notre Dame would more than likely finish the regular season ranked 3 or 4 but would actually be more of an 8 or 9. So ya Coach Louie, Notre Dame has a slight chance of going undefeated but I don’t see how anyone in their right mind (obviously you’re removed from that group) would put Notre Dame in the National Championship.

The Best Quote on the Michael Vick Saga..EVER.

August 17, 2009

Fox 5 News in Las Vegas has a segment each night called “The Rant”. It gives the viewers a chance to write in or call in to the studio and leave a “rant” about current events, both local and national. Friday night’s rants were all about Michael Vick because of his recent signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. The rants went back and forth about whether or not it was a good idea to sign him. Then came Jose. Jose took a different approach. He claimed that it wasn’t Mike Vick’s fault at all but rather the dogs fault. He claimed the dogs had every opportunity to walk away but chose to fight. Well Jose, have another one on Thunder Treats and see what other wacky shit you can come up with.
