Tribskin Pick’em, your prediction and ours: The playoff stretch drive is here

It’s all smiles at Happy Rock, who are finally ready to knock Azusa off its perch

62656-happyrock.jpg

Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet.

Last Week: Robledo (13-5); Tolegian (14-4).
Season: Robledo (112-52); Tolegian (111-51).

Last Week:: With three weeks and playoffs left, it’s what you expected, Aram and I in another tight race. Aram picked up another game going 14-5 to my 13-5. We both tanked taking Amat over Alemany, Damien over Claremont and for whatever reason, Baldwin Park over Pomona. I missed two more taking Walnut over Rowland and Gabrielino over South El Monte. But Aram gave one back after switching midweek with Duarte over Gladstone. Thanks Big Fella.

This week:: Gladstone can do no worse than at least a share of the Montview League title with guaranteed wins over Workman and Ganesha the final two weeks, but it wants more than that. It wants to defeat four-time defending champ Azusa, wants to finish the regular season 10-0 and wants to win the league title outright. After dismantling Duarte last week, how can you bet against them? Amat is in a must-win against Crespi and at home, this is one they have to have and will get. If not, say goodbye to the playoffs. South Hills is still in the playoff hunt and with Damien in a free-fall, I like the Huskies. Charter Oak will prove that Ayala is not good enough to hang with them, Diamond Ranch will take care of Hacienda’s Cinderella, Rowland and San Dimas will give Covina its second league loss. Also look for La Puente to rout Duarte and Rosemead to give Gabrielino loss number two.

    CRESPI 34 – Bishop Amat 17

    Amat’s season comes to an end and the highlight of the 2012 season becomes a pre-league victory over an evolving monster in Charter Oak.

    Sorry 2012 Lancers! No way Crespi will allow you to win. Time to turn in your pads.

  • The Goof Ball is Back

    @ Bishop Nomas,

    You’re a wuss! You disappear as Amat is rolling over everyone. You hide and don’t want to take your lumps for all the non-sense you talk.

    Now thay lose 1 game and you are back with your non-sense.

    We’ll be happy to hear it, once you eat your crow for the last 6 weeks.

    Start eating goof ball, you have a lot of crow on the table in front of you!

    LOL….On Blue!

  • Turn Out The Lights…

    Yes, Bishop Amat!

    The truth hurts. Your short lived wins will not be enough to save your 2012 season. All the gloating, the arrogance, and the insulsts are not enough to make the pain go away. The pain of knowing that your loss this coming Saturday will be the end of another failed season and of another failure by Coach Hagerty!

    No playoffs for you in 2012. Not even by a coin-flip!

    Go ahead…Insult away, but remember…I have never said anything that wasn’t true about your “has been” program!

    Turn Out The Lights…Time To Wash and Turn In Your Pads! LMFAO…

    LANCERS ARE ALL BLUE…

  • Doubting?

    Why are you doubting Glendora? Rancho only scored 7 against upland Glendora scored 26 and upland should have only beat Glendora by 3 or 7. Game was way closer than the scoreboard indicated. It’s alright Glendora has been underdogs all season and they will show how competitive they are on Thursday night.

  • reality

    Like Butch Cassidy said ” Who are these guys”. Nobody saw this coming in the off season and happy to see Gladstone turn the program upside down. Way to go coaches and boys. I’ll bet you won’t see to many other teams homecoming next year.

  • jcaz

    These are just the facts.

    Bishop Amat 30 Chater Oak 14

    Nonesense by any other name is still a bunch of nonsense.

    Dude, use your posted name piss ant and dont be like a Margarita Bill and hide under your skirt.

  • 12th man

    I’m hearing reports on the Scoby situation!!! More will be revealed..

  • jcaz

    Come on 12th man, don’t tease us like that !!

  • Not The 12th Man

    *****Breaking News******

    Scoby will NOT be transferring to Bishop Amat! LMFAO!

    Neither can afford each other! But not for lack of trying! Monsignor did try to buy him out from St Paul, even offered the starting job, but Blue’s papi jumped in and nixed the deal! Rumors are that Hagerty didn’t want Scoby. Scoby is not one to listen to his coaches (like “smoking Moore”). Size of the Blue family donation to be revealed very soon (or not!). Hahhhhh!

    Scoby is going to SJB. You heard it here first!

  • Fred Robledo

    Not since, so you understand the ground rules, you can slam Amat for losing all you want, but I will delete any comments with racial slurs or unnecessary foul language.

  • White Fang

    Turn Out The Lights, I think your lights went off some time ago! Bishop Amat has a lost one game and you call this a failure on the part of Amat’s coaching staff? No wonder you were kicked off Pop Warner in Montebello! You do not know football my boy!
    To Bishop Nomas(aka Nuts since 1995) Why do you care so much about what happens at Bishop Amat? You are like a little brat that nags because you can not have your way! Be honest, did you ever play the sport of football? If so, what position did you play and for what institution?

  • Coach Hagerty….Not

    Bishop No Mas / Turn Out the Lights,

    I’m really sorry I didn’t play your little mijo when he was at AMAT. But, here we only play the kids who work hard and earn it.

    I really wish both you and him well and I hope you find a good counselor to deal with your anger management issues and your own failures in life.

    Unfortunately, we can’t go back and relive our lives through our children, no matter how pathetic you were on the field / sidelines.

    LMFAO!!!!

  • My Guess

    I’m thinking Nonsense played Tight End for West Hollywood High…….

  • 12th man

    He started at tight end & came out as a “Wide Receiver”

  • Warrior fan

    More recent score Amat 35 Alemany 56!!!!!

    Fun Bishop Amat Tailgate Fact :

    A 2011 study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

    Another recent study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.

    That means, on average, Bishop Amat football fans get about 41 miles per gallon.

    Not bad.

  • Colt74

    Nonsense is in a bar and has one too many drinks. This beautiful lady sits down next to him.

    He turns to her and says, “hey, how ’bout it. You and me, getting it on.

    I’ve got a couple dollars and it looks like you could use a little money.”

    She stands up and says, “What makes you think I charge by the inch?”

    ************************************************

    A guy walks into a bar down in Alabama and orders a Grape Nehi.

    Surprised, Nonsense looks around and says, “you ain’t from around here…where you from, boy?”

    The guy says, “I’m from Pennsylvania.”

    Nonsense asks, “Whatchu do up in Pennsylvania?”

    The guy responds, “I’m a taxidermist.”

    Nonsense asks, “A taxidermist…what the hell is a taxidermist?”

    The guy says, “I mount dead animals.”

    Nonsense smiles and shouts to the whole bar, “It’s OK boys, he’s one of us.”

    **********************************************

    Nonsense, whose level of drunkenness was bordering on the absurd, stood up to leave a bar and fell flat on his face.

    “Maybe all I need is some fresh air,” he thought as he crawled outside.

    He tried to stand up again but fell face first into the mud.

    “Screw it,” he thought. “I’ll just crawl home.”

    The next morning, his wife found him on the doorstep asleep.

    “You went out drinking last night, didn’t you?” she said.

    “Uh, yes,” he said sheepishly. “How did you know?”

    “You left your wheelchair at the bar again.”

  • jcaz

    Warrior Fan

    True, and that’s “just the facts,” as they like to say, BUT WHEN YOU LOSE, and I guarantee one thing WF,, and that is that you, WILL lose, then we’ll all be in here wondering where Warrior fans at, especially if Amat gets further than you guys get.

    BTW, tell me something WF. If, and ya, it’s a big if, but if Amat goes further in the playoffs than Alemany does, then is Amat to be ranked higher than the Warriors are ?

    Just asking, cause that’s what your saying here with CO right ?

    Hum ??

    BTW, anyone seen or heard from Margarita Bill lately ??

    Hello Billy where are you ??

    LOL

  • WTF COACH CHRISTOS???

    LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING I AM NOT YOUR TYPICAL 2010-2011 HH WILSON PARENT, HOWEVER, WHAT I WITNESSED THIS PAST FRIDAY @ THE WILSON-NORTHVIEW GAME HAS ME SO UPSET THAT I WILL SUGGEST MY KID TO QUIT THE WILSON FOOTBALL TEAM. I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT X’s AND O’s. THE TEAM ITS NOT VERY TALENTED AND I DONT EXPECT THEM TO COMPETE FOR A LEAGUE TITLE OR ANYTHING ELSE. WHAT I WITNESSED CAME WITH ABOUT 3 MIN AND CHANGE LEFT IN THE GAME WITH THE SCORE NV 27- WILSON 7. COACH CHRISTOS CALLS A RUNNING PLAY AND HIS RB GETS CRACKED BY NV’s SAFETY. THE HIT WAS 100% LEGAL BUT IT WAS SO HARD THAT IT WAS HEARD ALL AROUND THE STADIUM. THE WILSON RB HIT THE GROUND AND IMMEDIATELY TOOK OF HIS HELMET WHILE STILL LAYING ON HIS BACK. THE GAME WAS STOPPED FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND WAS TAKEN BY THE AMBULANCE. FROM PEOPLE THAT WERE ON THE FIELD, THE REFEREES SUGGESTED TO CALL THE GAME WITH A LITTLE OVER 3 MINS LEFT AND WILSON DOWN BY 20. CHRISTOS RESPONSE WAS “NO, WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE” MY RESPONSE TO THAT IT’S.. REALLY COACH?? YOUR OFFENSE HAS SCORED 20 POINT IN THE LAST 93 MINUTES AT THAT POINT. YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT YOU ARE GONNA SCORE 20 UNANSWERED POINTS IN 3 MINUTES?? I AM NOT ONE TO QUIT WHILE COMPETING, BUT SOMETIMES A KID’S INJURY ITS BIGGER THAN THE ACTUAL GAME. IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN, SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED A FEW WEEKS AGO @ THE LA PUENTE-GLADSTONE GAME AND COACH THE LP HC DECIDED TO CALL THE GAME. THATS THE TYPE OF COACH I WOULD WANT MY KID TO PLAY FOR, HE KNEW EXACTLY WHEN THE KIDS ARE BIGGER THAN THE GAME. COACH CHRISTOS I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS ITS YOUR 1ST RODEO, BUT IT DOESNT TAKE A GENIUS TO MAKE THE RIGHT CALL IN THAT SITUATION. I AM ALSO EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED BUT NOT SURPRISED ONE BIT, THAT THE PRINCIPAL MS. ELENA PAUL OR THE AD MR. FESSEDEN DIDNT OVERWRITE THIS YOUNGSTER COACH AND CALLED THE GAME. LIKE I SAID, I’M NOT SURPRISED BECAUSE NEITHER OF THOSE 2 IDIOTS CARE ABOUT THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM… PARENTS PLEASE DONT ALLOW YOUR KIDS TO PLAY 4 THIS GUY OR THIS SCHOOL ANY LONGER!!!

  • Not Since 1995

    So Fred,

    What are you going to do about the Tight Ends and Mijo jokes after your politically correct statement?

    Will you delete White Gummer and Donkey74 also…?

    JACK ASS…where you at?

    Crespi’s coming and ain’t nothing you can do about it…!

    Not In 2012….

  • Not Since 1995

    The Truth Hurts and so does what Crespi did to The Lanceritos…!

    Slammed, crushed, and beaten. And that was just your male yell leaders in the back of your bus!

    LMFAO…!

  • Mitt Romney

    Colt 74

    Once I become President, the first I’m going to repeal is food stamps for drunks like you. And then I’m going to deport you back to your native lands of Castro Distict. And I don’t mean Cuba!

    Now for the time being, back to the Kids table. This is big boy talk, little man!

  • LoserLancersUnited

    These Amat Blowharda are as weak as their game on the Alemany football field.

    This is the best you can do? No wonder you got your a$$es handed to you!

    Amat got humiliated and now they’re going to get destroyed by Crespi!

    Yo Opino: Crespi 52 – Bishop Mams 17

    Turn Out The Lights and Don’t Let The Door Hit Your A$$ On The Way Out!

    LMFAO…

  • Colt74

    Nonsense/Mitt ( notice how they BOTH go good together? )

    Little man?
    Little man?
    Really?
    That’s not what you said when you were on your knees.

    N5xf3.Check Mate!

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    It’s getting pretty crazy in here! LOL… got some good stuff going on! Come on Fred, let them play and quit calling to many penalties!HAHAHA…

  • Anonymously

    Fred, did you hurt, Not Since’s, feelings by your comment? Shame on you Fred, Now say your sorry!
    If you do not, Not Since, might stop writing his anger management issues. We can not afford to loes a nobody! How would the SGV Tribune survive?
    Everyone loves a cry baby loser. He struggles to get out of his car for being over weight. He looks through the fence at High Football games. His eyes swell as his tears roll of his chubby cheeks and wonders.” Gee, I wish I could have played football as a child and in High School. Football players get all the cheer leaders.” I’m still waiting for my ‘coming of age’ experience. How much longer do I have to wait!
    So Fred, show some compassion to this poor lost soul!

  • BraveDad

    @ Not The 12th Man,

    Scoby is not going to Bosco. We do not need him. (Word is he was to campus last week but nobody answered the door to the coach’s office when he came knocking.)

    We have a great committee of backs and an elite OL. The team is on a mission and does not need any distractions. We are good – thanks though.
