The Mind Of The Yeti: Subway, Red Sox, Shots and Peter Cetera!

“Tonight, it’s very clear, as we’re both lying here, there’s so many things I want to say. I will always love you.”

“I would never leave you alone. Sometimes I just forget and say things I might regret.”

“It breaks my heart to see you crying. I don’t wanna lose you, I could never make it alone.”

“I am a yeti who will fight for your honor. I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of. We’ll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.”

I get it — You’re all a angry with Yeti Vedder. How could I leave you for months with nothing, zip, zilch!?!

Hopefully the lyrical stylings of Peter Cetera will make all of that pain go away. If not, I’m back! Yeti Vedder had to hibernate for a while, but I’m well rested and ready to share all of my deepest thoughts with you!

*How many chicks do you think Jared from Subway gets? I bet he pulls a ton of tail.

  1. He can get you free Subway.
  2. He can make awesome jokes like, “Hey baby, you want to try my $5 foot-long?”

*It is almost my favorite time of year when March Madness, NHL, NBA, and MLB are all happening at the same time. You add the NFL Draft/free agency and it is just the best time of year to be a sports fan!

*I think I am the only Red Sox fan alive that thinks this team is going to make the playoffs. You heard Yeti Vedder correctly. I am seeing a team that is being built with quality players and we have guys that are sneaky good. What is sneaky good?

I think Stephen Drew can be sneaky good if he stays healthy.

I think Jacoby Ellsbury could be an MVP candidate if he stays healthy.

I even think that our rotation could be sneaky good. Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Ryan Dempster, John Lackey, and Felix Doubront are all capable of having good seasons. Our bullpen has been rebuilt and I don’t think the AL East is as strong as it has been in recent years.

I hope Manti Te’o falls in the draft to New England. I would do anything to try and get a seat next to his girlfriend. Too soon? This joke was hilarious three weeks ago!

*These next two weeks are super important for my Lakers. I almost wish the trade deadline was two weeks away instead of on Thursday. If they get into the playoffs, they will be the team no one wants to play as long as they are healthy. I also won’t be shocked if they trade Dwight Howard. I’d almost like to see them trade him to get more depth, but I don’t see them doing any big moves.

*R.I.P. Dr. Jerry Buss. Thank you for assembling some of the best teams a fan could wish for. I can’t even imagine being a fan of a team that has an owner that doesn’t care. Sure you could say Jeremy Jacobs and the Bruins were like that for a while, but never Jerry Buss’ Lakers. We lose Magic and Kareem? Well, lets get Kobe Bryant and Shaq! Shaq wants out? Lets bring in Pau Gasol. He always made sure they were at LEAST going to contend. Let’s start winning this season for Dr. Buss!

*“Jodi Arias isn’t THAT crazy.” – said Nobody

*Old School Jam Of The Week: I Wish by Skee-Lo. This song is a rap anthem for all the short people out there! Randy Newman’s “Short People” also works if you hate rap music.

*So my phone has been blowing up in recent weeks because Eliza was wondering where The Mind Of The Yeti had gone. I’m sorry, boo. I was gone for a little while. It won’t happen again!

*Funny … I thought Danica Patrick would be a loser for being on the pole!

*I have been to numerous college basketball games in my life and I have never seen anyone come close to finishing the layup, foul shot, three pointer, half-court shot challenge. This kid did it AND he missed the three pointer twice!!!

I am not blown away that he did it. I am blown away that he pulled it off and only gets $5,000! Are you kidding me, Auburn? Give the kid a free year and a spot on your basketball team, as we all know it has been pretty turrible since Charles Barkley left!


*Tweet Of The Week: Michael Che

*I haven’t been watching a lot of live TV lately. MAINLY because I got sucked in by “Freaks and Geeks” on Netflix. How was this show cancelled? The writing was simply awesome and every episode was hilarious! I almost wish they would try to get it going again, but the cast is way to old now. Maybe with new actors?  I just want the story to keep going!

*Chris Bosh is a creepy dude.

*Kate Upton is the cover girl for SI again. In other news, boobs are still very popular with men! Peter Cetera agrees.

*Josh Beckett Douche Of The Week: Josh Hamilton. We know that you signed with Anaheim. So now you have to go out in public and say Dallas isn’t a baseball town? Wait until you see the fans in Los Angeles paying more attention to their hair than your sweet swing. How about you play a game there before judging the difference?

By the way, I’m sure L.A.’s nightlife will do wonders for your drug problems.

*I think the next Die Hard movie should just be called, “Dead, Finally Dead.”

*Where have you gone Peter Cetera, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you?

Any questions or comments? I’d love to hear from you! You can also tweet at me @YetiVedder
