New York Yankees: 2009 World Series Champions

Jose Molina and CC Sabathia

Yes, it’s unfair.  The Yankees is basically similar to an unfairly stacked virtual sports team in a videogame with added cheat codes.  But, hey, didn’t Seven Of Nine once said: “Cheating is often more efficient.”  😉

Either way, last night made me a little happy as I am an unapologetic Yankees fan.  It made me forget about what happened in Maine.  Imagine the world as the Yankees Stadium.  Everyone except for 100 people in that stadium is a Phillies fan.  As an owner of that stadium, will you allow the Yankees fans have a say by asking them to make this vote: “Can only Yankees fan be in the stadium?”  Having a majority vote on the rights of a minority is just morally and ethically wrong.  Unfortunately, someone forgot to send that TPS Report to Mr. U.S. Constitution.

Anyway, with that out of my system, here are just a  handful of my favorite bearish Yankees…

That passion and the intensity that is Joba...

Shirtless Saturday: Big B

Big B

That beautiful man above is none other than my local city’s beloved rapper, Big B (real name Bryan Mahoney).  He has been a staple of the Las Vegas’ music scene and you can see him in a couple of billboard posters in the city.  Here’s a couple of him promoting a pool bar called Rehab at the Palms Resorts Casino:

Big B reminds me of a hybrid between Yankees pitcher, Joba Chamberlain, and one of my favorite woofy actor Brian Leckner (will post about this handsome man soon).  Unlike those two, Big B is oftentimes shirtless — proudly and comfortably showing his tatooed-filled body.  One word can come out of it: HOT.  As this is Shirtless Saturday, here are just a few music videos of him where he’s shirtless for most of the time…


He is actually singing with one of my favorite groups, OPM.


My all-time favorite song from Big B, “White Trash Life.”
(The way he’s rapping here, he sounds like Billy Milano.)

The following is not a “shirtless” video, though we get to see Big B in a prison outfit while he recreates for us what his “camel toe” looks like.  Much thanks for Big B’s daytime boss, Corey Hart (of Inked fame).  Yes, most musicians have a second job just to make ends meet.

This is a behind-the-scenes for Big B’s latest music video, Sinner.
(More similar Big B videos on the Hart & Huntington site.)

And I just have to pimp OPM (been a big fan since their classic Heaven Is A Halfpipe) by posting one of their newest songs (Dirty White).  And not only is this a great song, we get to see Big B with a goatee!

Finally, here are more shirtless goodness from the lovely Big B.  All of the photos that have been posted here are from his MySpace page.

Thank Grizzly It’s Friday Weekly Wrap-Up

Every Friday, I will provide a weekly wrap-up then post a screenshot from a movie and I would like for you guys and gals to guess who the actor is and what movie it is from…  Just post your answers in the comments section. The answers will be posted the following Friday.

thankgrizzlyitsfriday-2009-01-09Here’s a “twofur”…  Who are the two woofy bearish fellas
on the left and the right?

I was gone for a bit due to my being at CES.  Part of my plans were to take photos of the beefy trifecta of David Ortiz, Prince Fielder, and Joba Chamberlain at the Sharp booth.  Unfortunately, I missed out on all three photo opportunities!  Anyway here are some photos I am leeching from others who were lucky enough to have seen these 3 woofy baseball players…  Man, Sharp really knew how to pick their husky athletes to promote their LCDs…

Um…  Woof!

Man, I totally missed out on seeing a bearded Joba!

Blast beating drummer, Nicholas Barker, got shirtless for us while drumming with melodic death metal band, Dimmu Borgir.

A musclebear version of Wolverine was brought to life by the massive strongman Brad Dunn.

Your author reminisced about educational tv shows and waxed philosophical about the benefits of bearish/chubby teachers.

A handsome chubby bear pro-wrestler was reinvented as a dancing and fighting tattooed gorilla: Shawn Murphy as King Kong Fu.

More King Kong Fu madness and with a special focus on a particular body region.

As for the answers from last week’s TGIF:WWU…

The very genial looking chubby bear is John DiResta from Miss Congeniality (hellfried gets the win!).  Mr. Diresta is more husky than chubby nowadays.  This is him from his MySpace page

I’m pretty saddened, but damn, the tanktop, exposed furry arms, and thick biceps sure make up for it though.  Plus, we get a peek at that belly — or whatever’s left of it (lol).  Anyway, let’s look back at the once chubby John DiResta…

Joba Chamberlain & Brian Leckner: Attacked By Bugs!

One of the reasons why Joba caught my fancy was the fact that he resembles a tall and beefy bear that I’ve been stalking following through the years: Brian Leckner.

You can currently find him as the “losing” contestant in that Round-Up commercial as he’s using an old-fashioned weed-killing pump instead of the easy-to-use Round-Up weed killer spray.*  (If anybody could find that commercial, that would be cool.)

* Round-Up, make sure to send the check to..

Here’s a collage of him in the film, Mimic 2.  He played a stalking (how’s that for irony) ex-boyfriend who later becomes a victim of the titular mutated insects.  It’s not really a spoiler because this collage is basically the only screen time he has in the film.

And to stick with the theme of pesticides and insecticides…

Joba Chamberlain was also a victim of a swarm of insects during Game 2 of the AL Divisional Series at Jacobs Field on October 5, 2007 in Cleveland, Ohio.  Upon closer look, these insects appear to be the Chironomus plumosus.  And upon even closer look, these Chironomus plumosus were led by a…

Seriously though, check out this article about that famous/weirdest moment in baseball.  Specifically, this erotically-charged paragraph (and the emphasis is all mine):

And for some strange reason they feasted on Chamberlain, the beefy right-hander who helplessly stood on the rubber struggling to see Posada’s target as the tiny pests buzzed around his head. As some of them stuck to his muscular, sweaty neck and back, Chamberlain came unhinged.

Damn.  How hot was that?!

Who knew that these Sports Writers are also passionate BearFic writers?  😉

And, finally, here’s a video of Joba talking about his experience about the Cleveland Bugs…

Joba And The Padres

Two days ago, Joba gave up one run on four hits in 5 2/3 innings in his fourth start.  Not bad at all.  He didn’t get the win, but it helped the Yankees get their 7th straight win.

Here are some photos from that game, courtesy of ESPN.com.

Joba Chamberlain: “Joba Like It’s Hot”

Yeah, yeah. I’m a fan of the Evil Empire.  But let’s put down our differences for a moment, and appreciate the fact that the Yankees currently has one of the cutest (yeah, I said, “cutest”) baseball pitchers right now: Joba Chamberlain.

In a couple of hours, he’s playing his third start of the season against the hot-hitting Houston Astros.  He didn’t pitch too good in his first start, but showed promise and control in his second start.  Will he quiet the Astros’ bats tonight?  If I’m a betting man, I’m putting money that Joba will mature into a woofy bear, just like Bob Wickman…  Lol.  What did you think?  I’m putting money on the Yankees?  Well, I do live in Las Vegas…  -_^


Apparently, we won’t be seeing too much of this excited Joba as the sports
media consider his emotional outbursts to be unprofessional and excessive.
What a shame.
