Unreal Brian Scalabrine Rap

Posted by Blake Murphy on May 9, 2021

Normally I don’t drop too many links because I’m a bad member of the blogosphere, but this was wayyyy too good not to pass along. I know normally I’m overly affectionate towards The Basketball Jones boys, but this is one segment, at least, that you have to check out. At roughly the 9:30 mark of this Podcast, Skeets spits a gangster rap as Brian Scalabrine.

Not only is it some hard-ass gangsta shiz, it’s also hilarious. Check This Hot Fire Now!!!

Richie Sexson is a tool. We all knew that. The announcer thinks so, too.

Booty Butt Cheeks! Video of the Day

Posted by Blake Murphy on May 8, 2021

You’re right! This has nothing to do with sports (or anything, for that matter). But I’ll lay $20 I don’t have that it’s impossible to watch this whole video without laughing at least once. And I’m ’bout that.

Carnival of the NBA #56

Posted by Blake Murphy on May 5, 2021

I had been aching to get a chance to host a Carnival of the NBA at some point. While I wasn’t sure of the intricacies, really, I knew that the idea was a cool one. When I found out I’d be doing it right in the middle of the NBA Playoffs, I thought even better. So foremost, thanks to Matt from Blog-a-Bull for hooking me up with the chance to host.

And normally I’m big on length introductions, but let’s just get into it. Without any ado whatsoever, The On Deck Circle presents the 56th Carnival of the NBA:

Billy Goat! Video of the Day

Posted by Blake Murphy on May 1, 2021

Hadn’t had a good VoD sent along in a while, so here’s this insane catch in case you missed it. And yes, B.J., it is far superior to Pedroia’s play from the other night.

How Badly? Video of the Day

Posted by Blake Murphy on April 30, 2021

Doesn’t look like I’ll be live-blogging any soccer today, so I decided to go with a soccer-themed VoD. This is Nike’s new Football commercial. I thought it was pretty cool. Y’kno, for a bunch of ugly guys who don’t speak English…

The On Deck Circle Podcast Volume 11

Posted by Blake Murphy on April 25, 2021

The Podcast isn’t done yet! It’s got a few more weeks, anyways, and is only getting better (?). This week, Stu returns impromptu because Erik was sick, and this one touches on a lot of stuff you really want to know about. It includes the strangest NFL Mock Draft you’ve heard, Stu finding out about Cameragate for the first time, the NHL’s second round of playoff action, and where a few ex-Pirates and ex-Blue Jays have landed. I also launch the Hinske for MVP campaign.

Guest: Stu Wilkinson
Topics: NFL Draft, NHL Playoffs, Ex-Jays/Pirates

The ODC Podcast Volume 11

And just because some people have asked from time to time, here are the songs played from each volume of the Podcast. The closing song is always Real Talk (1, 2, 3) by Fabolous.
