I blogged about it like two weeks ago (www.dozonlife.com/blogs/how-good-does-jimmy-g-have-to-play-to-take-tommys-job) and apparently a reporter must've been reading my blogs because he asked Bill belicheck that question today and got this response.
I'm sure everybody on twitter and on blogs has said the same thing so I'll be short. I fucking love this. We all know Belichick HATES talking to reporters, and more so hates stupid questions and he just showed a little bit of the inner workings of his genius brain, and showed how fed up he was with the bullshit.
Bill knows Tom Brady is his guy. He has been his guy since 2001, and he will be until he cannot throw a football anymore. Obviously when I blogged it I knew it was kind of a stupid question because it's Tom Brady we're talking about. Greatest quarterback/human off all time. Some bum from a D 1-AA school isn't gonna steal his spot. BUTTTTTT I still think you cannot 100% write off Jimmy pulling a Brady to Brady, if he throws 30 touchdowns, as outlandish as that sounds, I feel like you gotta ride the hot hand.
Love Bill showing off the guns too. He's ready to kick the entire NFL's ass this season and I for one cannot wait. The Red Sox have been really pissing me off this week and I need the Patriots to save me. Oh and fucking lock up Hightower, Collins and Butler longterm already. They are the future of this organization. Cannot let them get to free agency because someone will out pay the Pats and we'll lose our studs.
P.S. I love this story even more because it brings up a old Tebow story from his brief time with the Pats. Legit breaks my heart that he is out of football. Tim Tebow is one of my top 10 favorite people of all time.
Song: I Ran (So Far Away)
Artist: A Flock of Seagulls
Album: A Flock of Seagulls (1982)
In honor of the Blessing of the Fleet (and beer tent) I HAD to have a song with run/ran in it. Just learned this fun fact from wikipedia. Did you know The Blessing of the Fleet is a tradition that began centuries ago in Mediterranean fishing communities. The practice is predominantly Catholic and a blessing from the local priest was meant to ensure a safe and bountiful season. Did you know that? Also almost went w/ the Proclaimers 500 miles, another one hit wonder about running, but love this song so much more, had to go w/ Flock of Seagulls.
P.S. Here's a little Friday bonus... photos of me from the Blessing in 2009. It sucks because I'm stupid and didn't do my bib correctly so I never officially finished it because I ripped off the part you're supposed to hand in at the end so they said I had to give my entire bib if I wanted to be official. Fuck that I wanted to keep that shit (big ups to Al Don for giving me a bib with a 58 in it!!) and it is still up on my bulletin board to this day.
I just say I ran in it in an hour 40 which equals a 10 minute mile pace. I did finish around there which isn't even that good but nobody will ever know the actual time. I guess I'll just have to run it again someday. I lost a ton of weight this year but still not in good enough shape to run in this year, hopefully will make my long awaited return in 2017.
Gotta stretch before a big race. Even though this was taken in front yard at least an hour before the race started. Gotta stay limber.
So fucking awkward.
All sweaty and disoriented at the finish line. I did actually bust my ass on a curb shortly after finishing the race. I was DEAD. Also this picture reminds me of that Mr. Krab meme cause it's blurry AF.
Young Doz at the finish line eating my lips apparently.
Dodging child support payments like
Just a few days after rumors swirled that Julian Edelman was messing around with Adriana Lima.
It appears that the star slot receiver actually just dropped something recently... some baby batter. Usually it's Welker doing the dropping, but now apparently Jules is about to be a dad to some Swedish model that I've never heard, Ella Rose.
Your hypnosis is working babe.
Yep, we're all looking at the water...
Apparently this chick filed paternity documents (no idea that was even a thing) claiming that JE11 is the father. Idk what is next legally, but apparently Edelman is gonna be a father. Hopefully the whole situation can avoid a Maury show DNA paternity test, although I'd be lying if I said that wouldn't be hilarious to watch. Now knocking up a random could be seen as a negative, which for sure it is in some ways, but I mean look at this chick, Jules could've done A LOT worse. Maybe try to stay together for the kids? IDK. What I do know is that my man is getting after it lately. Can't knock the hustle. If you were the 2nd to 4th most attractive man on the best team in the NFL you'd be doing the same thing. The dude just catches Super Bowl winning touchdowns and fucks. What a life.
What I find really interesting is how much Edelman loves Brady and wants to copy his every move. It has leaked out from just football to his personal life as well. People may forget because how of prevalent a couple Tom Brady and Gisele are that my man Tommy had a baby from a previous fling with actress Bridget Moynahan. Still don't know who Bridget Moynahan is but I know she's Brady's firstborns baby momma. Just wikipedia'd her. Still only know her name because of her ties to TB12. Yes the golden boy, Tom Brady had a bastard child. It looks like Edelman may be next.
TBH this move doesn't really shock, me. People forget how long Edelman has been on the Patriots, but he's been here since 2009. That's a long fucking time. After being a 4th receiver/returner/occasionally defensive back it wasn't until 2013 that Edelman became an every down WR. Some may forget that Edelman used to be a bit of a bad boy. Dude had charges against him in 2011 for groping a chick at a Halloween party, although they were eventually dropped.
I'm just saying the dude is a little bit of a bad boy. Don't let the new clothes, a Super Bowl ring, or a new haircut fool you.
Slim Shady Edelman
Dirty Hipster Edelman
You just never know what's gonna happen to these guys off the field. I don't really care that he knocked this model up, congrats on the sex Jules. As long as there is no Maury show appearance I think everything will be fine. Just don't be a deadbeat dad, pay the child support and get back on the field. All I care about is Edelman staying healthy for an entire season to help this team get ring #5.
Started one hit wonder Wednesday last week and it didn't even make it to a second week. Sorry blog life gets put on hold for a day on the river. Back for right now though. It'll be back next Wednesday.
Here's the Thursday July 28th (wtf how is July basically already over) Song of the Day. I've been so out of the loop, apparently my girl Katy Perry's new song is the theme song for the Olympics. Good for her. Hopefully listening to it doesn't give you second hand Zika. Here it is.
Artist: Katy Perry
No doubt that this is pretty insane. I don't know shit about Samurai's other than the movie the Last Samurai that I had to watch for a Japanese History class I took in college. All I remember from the movie is the scene from Chapelle Show where Paul Mooney rants about Tom Cruise playing a Samurai.
What I will say is that this Samurai sliced that in half from WAY closer than 60 feet 6 inches away. Which poses the question; with the trade deadline approaching, instead of a team stripping their farm system for a bat, why doesn't someone give this dude a shot?
You're probably thinking, "doz you're an idiot" or something similar but hear me out for 2 seconds.
This dude is obviously left handed, baseball teams love that. You can be a shitty lefty reliever or back up outfielder for YEARS strictly because you're left handed.
So my man(lets just call him Sammy to save time) Sammy has that going for him. Just think of all the left handed Japanese bats that starred in MLB. There's Ichiro and then there's Matsui. TWO just two. PC losers will always cry about diversity but other than Ichiro who's like 94 years old who's left? MLB needs their next big Japanese star to showcase and I think Sammy is their guy.
Do Samurai's make good money? I'm guessing no right? What does a Samurai even do in 2016 other than just cut shit in half with knifes for fun. I'm sure he's sliced watermelons, water balloons, and that shit gets old quick. Everybody knows once you slice one watermelon in half, you've sliced all the watermelons in half. Sammy needs a new challenge. I'm sure the league minimum salary of like 500K would be more money than this dude would know what do with. Honestly I mean how much can black robes cost?
Sammy obviously has the hand eye coordination to hit, plus I'm sure he's played some ball in Japan. There's basically five things you can do if you live in Japan. You can fish, design electronics(video games), do something in martial arts, be a doctor or play baseball. Really 6 if you wanna count walking around the streets with a mask on so you can breath.
Basically what I'm saying is I'm sure this dude played ball at some point. We saw him hit the 100 MPH heater now it's just can he handle the off speed stuff? I'm pretty sure Samurai's are very patient, so he can just work the count until he gets that one fast ball, then he's slicing that shit to the moon. Plus being a fucking samurai means he's probably athletic enough to play LF since the dude can slice a baseball in half from 5 feet away. All I'm saying is I bet this dude can hit better than a guy like Jarrod Dyson who is in the majors only because he's fast. Someone give Sammy a shot!!!

Upstairs computer won't let me type in a title for the blog...Weird but you should know the deal by now. SONG OF THE DAY JULY 25th (happy birthday C-lo)
Also I've been on a huge Arctic Monkeys bender rn so here is a song of the day that is almost 10 years old.
Song: Teddy Picker

Album: My Favourite Worst Nightmare
Everybody knows you don't leave the table when you're on a heater.
We've known it all year that this is David Ortiz final season. But should it be? A few teams have given him his shitty going away gift, and I've bought the final season shirt, bumper sticker AND bottle opener but I'm totally fine with him playing in 2017. Honestly, I don't wanna get heavy on Big Papi, but it's kinda irresponsible of him to just give up now. The Red Sox are FINALLY good again for the first time since 2013, and if they wanna stay good for more than just one season, unlike how they followed up 2013, then they could definitely use his bat hitting 4th again next season.
In a little over half the season (87 games) Big Papi has 24 homers, 34 doubles (which is crazy to me given his lack of speed and foot issues) but the dude is still mashing at 40 years old. Add in a .330 batting average, 79 RBIs, on base % of .423, throw in 2 for 2 on stolen bases and oh by the way he's leading all of MLB in slugging and OPS which sabermetrics guys will tell you is pretty, pretty, pretty good.
Last night in a 13-2 romping of Papi's former team, the Minnesota Twins, David went 3-5 with a HR and 4 RBI. Decent night for the 40 year old.
But it's what he did BEFORE the game that took all the headlines.
Papi hit a homah soooooo faaawkin hawwwd broo dat it got fackinnn stuck in Pesky's Pole.
Absolutely insane to me, I mean I get Fenway Park is fragile at 104 years old and low key falling apart but it's bananas to me this happened. The odds of this happening has to be close to the odds of winning the lottery as you get struck by lightning. In the many years I've been following the Sox, I've never seen anything like that.
Papi is a bad mother fucker indeed. Just add another feat to the legend of Big Papi. Rob Bradford said it and it's true, with no proof of Ted William's 502 red seat HR it's pretty cool to have documented evidence of this. I just wish there was video footage, I wouldn't put it past the Boston PR-ed Sox to jam a ball up there just to make headlines.
However when it comes to David retiring, I do believe he will not play next year, the foot issues are real. But I mean it seems pretty obvious he can still swing the bat, plus he's a DH that does have to account for something. I'm not the only one who thinks the foot stop shouldn't stop him. Look at what the Hit King himself had to say. Great line.
But honestly, I think because he's having SUCH a good year it makes sense to walk away. Because although he's been mashing this year, who knows how much will change from age 40 to 41?
Remember when A-Rod had his renaissance last season? (you probably don't because fuck A-rod) While he only hit .250 but had 33 HR and 86 RBI at 39 years old, this year he's hitting .210 with 9 HR and 29, and he just got kinda hot this week, his numbers were way worse like two weeks ago. Basically I'm just saying you don't know what you're gonna get with Papi next year. He'd look like a real ass hole if he came back and hit like .240 with 17 HRs next year.
The Red Sox are good. I shit on them a lot on twitter, but I fucking love the Sox man. And this team can hit, they just are extremely shaky when it comes to pitching, so unless they can win games in the playoffs 9-8 I don't see them winning the World Series. Obviously that would be the best ending for Papi's career, to go out with a championship, but should the Sox lose before then, the individual season he's having, a potential MVP year, is the next best way to walk away.
I will end with this. This current Red Sox team is a fun, young team that hits the piss off the ball. They have a bright future and just have to make sure they don't fuck it up by not keeping their young talent and adding to their pitching. Gun to my head this team does not win it all. I just don't think this team is built to win in October. They MIGHT be able to get out of the ALDS but I'd be shocked if they won the Pennant or more. Although I said the same thing in 2013 so who knows?
Should the Red Sox lose in heartbreaking fashion in a 6 or 7 game series in the ALCS or World Series, I would be VERY interested to see what David does. To play as well as he has and be that close to another ring, I think then we can really discuss the possibility of a certain call season (again) in 2017.
Sorry no blogs yesterday-------I was being a good boy and cleaned my room and that literally took the entire day. Back on the horse though for a Friday.
Now I'm definitely a rocker-type but when I first heard this song I was hooked. I'm secure enough to admit when a pop song is fire and this shit is FIRE. Apparently it's kinda old but I legit never listen to pop radio and just heard this like last week and have been meaning to post it.
Song: Cake By The Ocean
P.S. Burnin Up by Jonas Brothers has to be top 20 catchiest songs that came out while I was in high school.
I LOVE Throwback uniforms. In basically any sport. For the most part every team has at least one awesome retro jersey. I say for the most part because boring ass teams like the Yankees have pretty much had the same uniform throughout franchise history. The NFL banned throwback uniforms in 2013 which just shows again how fucking stupid the NFL is. I know it's a "safety" issue because they don't want teams using multiple helmets but I think it's a stupid rule. The Patriots and Chargers throwback uniforms are some of the best in sports. It's a shame teams with different throwback helmets cannot wear throwback uniforms.
Tonight 8 MLB teams (in 4 games) will be wearing throwback uniforms in games.
Those games are the following;
Atlanta Braves at Cincinnati Reds (already in progress)
San Francisco Giants at Boston Red Sox (7:10 PM)
New York Mets at Chicago Cubs (already in progress)
Texas Rangers at LA Angels of Anaheim (dumbest name is sports) (10:05 PM)
Obviously I love the Sox 70's no button jersey but the best one here IMO is the San Francisco Giants. Love the orange look.
Some people don't like throwbacks, and I like to call those people wet blankets. Throwbacks are awesome. Idk if you haven't been able to tell yet from all of my blogs but I'm a big history and nostalgia guy. There's people who think stuff like this is gimmicky, which sure I guess it is, but it also is fun. Let's not forget that these are SPORTS, they're supposed to be fun. Most of these uniforms are awesome, the road grays are kinda boring but overall I'm glad these teams are doing it. My only issue is that only 8 teams are partaking in this, every team easily could throw on some old uniforms as well.
I think once a month there should be a throwback uniform day across all of Major League Baseball. How awesome would that be? If teams use a throwback as an alternate jersey, like I know the Giants, Mets and Pirates do, that's fine too, but it wouldn't count for my once a month idea. Like the last Wednesday of every month or something all teams could wear throwbacks. I think it's an awesome idea.
I think the NFL should have a similar thing going on, one week every season in the NFL all teams should wear throwbacks. They already have a MONTH of pink accessories, we can't get 1 game a season of throwbacks? Fuck you Goodell. I wanna see the Bucs creamsicle uni's!
