I get a kick out of the Nattering Nabob of Negativity from Naptown meaning colleague Dennis DSource Guillermo.
By nationality, he is a Fil Am who flies his Pinoy flag on high. Nothing wrong with that but, when it comes to pro football, he is a pinhead.
SEE DSOURCE ON HOW NOBODY IN NAPTOWN IS SLEEPING AS NY JETS INVADE THE CORN FED METROOPOLIS ON SUNDAY.
He doesn’t even know we call the kid QB, Mark Sanchise. Get it, GMan, rhymes with franchise whereas Manning rhymes with what, banning?
Something makes him think a frisky horsey, a Colt stolen away from Baltimore, can stop a Jet invasion.
He is so, so, so, so wrong.
Here’s what DSauce wrote and how I countered him. Must be something in the water in Indy, folks.
In the spirit of playful competitive banter, our New York Boxing Examiner Michael Marley and I had a little smack talk going regarding who will win between the teams that represent the cities we represent.
Here’s what Marley had to say:
Before he met me, Dennis Guillermo thought a football coach was something you ride in, a motor vehicle of some sort. He thinks Joe Willie Namath was a jockey who rode in the Kentucky Derby.
He doesn’t even know that NFL balls are made out of pigskin. He thinks they are made from Canadian bacon.
But DSource is a loyal Colts rooter. He conveniently overlooks how Indy stole the franchise under the cover of darkness from Baltimore. He won’t admit that as good as he is, Peyton Manning is no Johnny Unitas.
My team, the Patriots? They are playing Sunday, they are playing golf. So I will back the green and white, the former New York Titans who were spawned in the fabulous AFL just like the Boston Patriots were. It’s not often I back a Big Apple team but I say Rex Ryan and his crew beat Indy, 24-17, and Coach Rex then cuts his daily calorie intake down to 12,000 calories per day.
What does DSauce say?
The only derby Pinoys like me and Manny go to, we call “sabong”, and the only thing I really cared about coming from Kentucky is “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali.
In terms of “The Greatest” on the field at the moment, how can anyone bet against Peyton Manning? The first ever 4-time MVP. He’s breaking records, you might as well call him Peyton Manny! Just like Manny P. has been defying logic in boxing, P Money #18 is playing defenses like he’s on Madden. It simply ain’t fair.
I know the Bostonian in the White Gorilla is the true reason he has to go against the Colts. After all, we did give the Patriots a nice come-from-behind spanking the day after Pacquiao gave Cotto a whooping. I got nothing but respect for Johnny U and the Baltimore Colts. I live in the present though, and the last thing I want to do is challenge Marley on any topic involving history. After all, I wasn’t even being conceived to be ‘conceived’ when he was already a long-time journalist.
Marley got it right with me and the Colts though.
I used to work at the RCA dome for Colts games and watched pretty much every single Colts game either live or on TV in this century.
But I do have a good knowledge of my football as well. Followed the NFL since Jerome Bettis was tearing it up for the LA Rams. But is it really that hard to see that the Jets have no chance except for Peyton Manning going down with an injury early, to come in Indy with their mediocre at best offense and win?
The Jets got D though, but how long can their offense stay on the field to help their defense stay fresh? I see a competitive first half but the Jets will fade in the second.
PMoney will make it rain on em’ Jets en-route to a wide margin victory.
Prediction: Colts A lot, Jets not so much. (35-14)
