My source just informed me through some  real sick insider information that Wes Welker will be out for the 2010-2011 NFL season with a torn rotator cuff. His contact has leaked that Wes has been to Mass General Hospital within the past few weeks and saw the same doctor that treated Laurence Maroney for his torn labrum

Wes will not see the field in the upcoming season, let the Julian Edleman era begin

This is such good insider information that Yahoo sports, Barstoolsports.com, ESPN, John Clayton even Peter King don’t know this yet. Bigrips.wordpress.com might finally get the street cred it deserves.

P.S. I also called the Sports Hub and WEEI to inform them, so when they break the news and do not give me the credit, I’ll start a smear campaign.  Even if it is untrue, what do I have to lose…maybe 7 of my fifteen readers?

Let’s see how long it takes for this to become the headline on ESPN.com

Don’t Pay the Refs!

Going into the NFL season I had one theory. The scab refs were going to be really awful = lots of points. For example the Refs in the Patriots game have pocketed their whistle on two plays in the end zone when they could have easily flagged the Pats defense for pass interference. I think it has to do with the speed of the game, inexperience and that they don’t want to make the game about them, unlike most refers n pro sports. What does this mean for betting these games? Well, if they are not going to call a lot of penalties and just let players play, I predict there will be tons of totals that go OVER. My 4pm lock

4:25pm Carolina @ Tampa Bay O/U 45 – If Jacksonville and Minnesota can put up 35 pints then the Bucs and Panthers line should 72. They combine for 131 points in the two games they played. Bet the OVER of 45.

Good luck,


Hello friends. So it’s be some time since we have last spoke. I was going to wait until Football season to relaunch BigRips, but I couldn’t help to stay away with all this steroid news the last few weeks.

First, Melky Cabrera, MVP and batting champ contender, in a contract year was on the verge of solidifying an 80 million dollar pay day. Well just so happens Melky has been on the sauce this year, he even took it a step further and made a fake web-site to cover his tracks. No beuno Melky. With your history of hanging with porn stars, you should have used the Ryan Braun herpes excuse. Next Barolo Colon aka Fatolo Colon whose career was over 6 years ago was busted for juicing. Not the poster child for the steroid community. Have you seen his gut lately ? Finally, Lance Armstrong, Mr. Livestrong, 7 time Tour De France winner, was stripped of his 7 championships after he dropped his fight against the drug charges. Armstrong said in his statement “Today I turn the page. I will no longer address this issue, regardless of the circumstances.” Apparently he took PR advice from Mark McGwire who infamously said “I’m not here to talk about the past” in front of congress.

Today I am here to talk about the past, here are the top ten steroids stories involving athletes who used performance enhancing drugs and their tall tales.

#10 Alex Rodriguez, MLB – ARod went on 60 Minutes and told Katie Couric in ’07 that he never used steroids, HGH or other performance enhancing drugs. He also told Katie that he was “never tempted” to take them because he felt he worked hard enough to compete without them. When he finally fessed up, his excuse “I was under an enormous amount of pressure”. ARod is on the DL and hasn’t hit more then 35 HRs since 2008

#9 Bret Boone, MLB – “Shh, don’t tell anybody” is what Bret told Jose Canseco when he started using. Canseco said it was obvious to everyone in baseball because of his cartoon character shape. Bret Boone averaged 14 HRs for 9 seasons suddenly found his stroke at 32 and doubled what he averaged for power numbers (37 HRs and 141 RBIs). He retired on ’06 citing a lack of passion for the game, a year after MLB put in place new testing policy.

#8 Alex Sanchez, MLB – An obscure player during the mid 2000s, Alex, was the first player busted under the MLB ‘s new testing policy. Never a power guy (career high 2 HRs) but he did steal a lot bases when he was on PEDs. Sanchez was suspended in ’05 said this “I take some kind of stuff I buy over the counter. multi-vitamin…muscle relaxers…Stuff to give me energy.” Who doesn’t pop a few over the counter muscles relaxers to get past that 2:30 feeling. Alex Sanchez now plays somewhere in Mexico.

#7 Marion Jones, Olympian – Jones who took enough juice to grow a pair of testicles, took those balls with her to a press conference, after she was investigated by BALCO. She said “I’ll answer questions in front of US Senate…I’ve accomplished what I’ve accomplished by my God given abilities” She later had to admit to using steroids when her attorney told her that she’d get 5-10 for perjury. After confessing Jones did 6 months in jail.

#6 Floyd Landis, Cyclist – Remember Sleepy Floyd Landis who toured America denying doping allegations after he won the Tour De France. He once said the higher than normal testosterone levels in his urine were from “…drinking a lot of Whisky…” I’m going to use that excuse the next time I fail a drug test at workLandis is training to get into NASCAR.

#5 Ken Caminiti, MLB – The ’96 NL MVP once said  “I’ve made a ton of mistakes. I don’t think using steroids is one of them.” Caminiti died in ’04 at 41, of coronary artery disease and an enlarged heart, both common side effects of juicing

#4 Shawne Merriman, NFL – At 21 he was the Defensive Rookie of the year and was suspended at 22 for a positive steroid test. An NFL source said that his positive test was “definitely for steroids … not one of those supplement deals.” Merriman went on to deny that he used Nandrolone (which has to be injected to work) and that it must have been put into the supplements that he was taking. He also went on the choke slam Tila Tequila. Merriman was cut by the Bills this year

#3 Tyler Hamilton, Cyclist – Not a household name, but Tyler Hamilton had one of the better excuses. He caught doping and suspended for two years for blood doping in 2004. His excuse? Hamilton said he had a “vanishing twin” which is a twin that died in utero. This was true, but apparently his twin can vanish and reappear on demand, because he tested negative 2 months before his positive test. Hamilton attempted a comeback in ’08 but was caught for doping and suspended for 8 years.

#2 Rocky, Boxing – I know he’s just a movie character, but I bet if you polled most Americans there would be a large percentage of the population that thinks Rocky Balboa was a real person. Rocky, well Sly Stallone, made millions off his Rocky movies and denies using steroids. He once told Matt Lauer on the Today Show “You have to put in years and years and years of hard labor to stay in shape,” It also doesn’t hurt to pump yourself with 48 vials of HGH, which is what Sly was caught with in ’06.

#1 Tiger Woods, Golf – Tiger has never tested positive but his doctor Dr. Galea has supplied athletes with HGH and was arrested in Toronto for carrying enough HGH to make Barry Bonds blush. He has treated 23 different athletes, 7 are confirmed with HGH. Add in the decline of his skills and his body breaking down (Achilles, hip, knee) before his 35th birthday, it’s just a matter of time before a teary eyed Tiger confuses on 60 minutes. Tiger hasn’t won a major since 2008

Of all these athletes the amount of time spent in jail for using drugs they obtained illegally is 6 months (Marion Jones). The lesson here, cheat to make your millions, then deny when you get accused. Then confess when the real heat comes down on you and you’ll be ok.


Duce’s wicked hungover Sat

Holy shit. I woke up this morning and didn’t know where I was. I was wrecked. Burping up Patron. My lovely wife greeted me with coffee and ” you were an idiot”. Apparently, I was trying to ride my buddies dog around his house. I highly question this and am waiting for confirmation. There are a number of my colleagues who woke this morning to work emails from yours truly that sound like they are from a 4th grader. I was even posting on Big Rips. I sent a Facebook message to my 5th grade girlfriend. Oh shit, while writing this I decided I better check my text message outbox. Fuck.  Looks like I was trying to get a 4some for 8am this morning at 1245 last night.  Wow dude, solid performance. I’m celebrating by taking my homies(fired staff) to the best place on earth. Fun World.

Well, anyway. We have been doing well and the last thing I want to do is jinx it. I been looking at shit since about 8am. I had to fire my staff cause they were giving me a large headache, which is the reason for the light card. I will be back for the 330’s.

Iowa -3 over Pitt-6 units ***  Play of the day.Some day Pitt is going to be good with their new run and gun, spread offense. It’s not about to start this week in Iowa. Lets not forget that this Iowa team, really should have won on the road at State. I’m shocked that this line is at 3. Pitt barely beat Maine last weekend at home. What’s even more amazing is that they gave up 29 points to Maine. This defense is a shell of it’s former self. Now, they go on the road into a Big 10 power? People are over valuing Ray Grahm. Yes, he leads the nation in rushing. The only 1-A team they have played is Buffalor for Christs sake. I think Iowa bounces back in a big way and this win this game by 10+. Looking for Sunseri to carve up that D.

Auburn +3.5 over Big Mick’s Clemson-3 units- Sorry Mick, I’m rolling with the Tigers today. The hook is simply too much to pass up. I can see this going either way. I was really impressed with the Auburn O-line against Miss. They averaged over 6 yards per carry. They can pound all day and they will easily be able to run the ball on Clemson. The Tigers gave up over 5 yards per carry too Wofford AND Troy. This is a classic built SEC offense. Once they are able to run, the passing game will open up for Trotter. Too young teams, with young Qb’s. I will glady take the points.

Florida International +6 over Central Florida-3 units** remember our boy TY? Dude is sick. He’s going to smoke Central and be right in the middle of the Heisman race. Been watching this line all week and it’s at 6 and I simply have to lock it in. Probably end up playing the money line as well. Game is at 6pm.

College: 18-8 +33.2 units

NFL: 17 -7  +19.6 Units

How sick was that Iowa State game? Our boy Steele came through. He was unreal down the stretch to get us the cover and the out right win. Bringing in 7.1 units.

easy cover on TCU and Bama but I’m completely disgusted with what just happened in the Hawaii game. They score a TD with 2 mins left for the easy back door cover. What happens? Washington blocks the PAT and returns for a TD(2 points). Fucking amazing. Instead of winning my 3 units (2 at 5.5 and 1 at 6) we lose all 3. FUCK YOU HAWAII.  Still having a good day.

Michigan +3.5 over ND- 4 units- You want to give me the fucking hook at home? I will take it. There is no way I’m betting against Denard Robinson at home in the game of his life. I’m seriously thinking about buying to 4. Everyones on the Leprechans. I will post in comments.

BC + 7.5 over Central Florida- 3 units You want to give me the hook, you dickhead? I will take it. BC isn’t as bad as we saw last week. They can easily win this game. Central is looking ahead to FIU and my boy TY.

BYU +7.5 over Texas-2 units You want to give me the hook? I’ll bite. I have already beaten to a dead horse my feelings on the Mormon faith(except Polygamy). BYU is Mormon strong. They are tough and they can pound the ball. Texas isn’t that good and 7.5 is alot.

Duceman’s mid afternoon

Fucking mad house over here. I’m simply disgusted that the Cyclones fumbled deep in Iowa terrritory and then their own territory. Much better team so far.

Adding another 1 unit on Hawaii .

Georgia +3.5 over South Carolina-3 units. Saw the hook and wet my pants. Been hoping for it. Way too many points for this rivalry. South Carolina is damn good, but they are no Boise State.


Wow. Can’t believe we are back for another football season. Been waiting for this day for a long time. Had a pretty good off season. Keegan Bradley came through in a huge way for us at the PGA. 10 dollar bet at 150-1 was the highlight of the summer. The only reason for the bet, was Keegan’s father was a good friend of my dads in HS.  Unfortunately, I told the Mrs while 10 beers deep on Sat and was forced to by a new stove on Monday.

Last year, we had a very successful College Season that was capped with a nice bowl run. We are looking to continue that tonight. Been looking at all of the Thursday night games and there is one that we are locking in. Good luck this season fellas..

Western Kentucky +17.5 over Kentucky-3 units- Kentucky is going to have to rebuild after losing Randall Cobb who accounted for about 50% of their offense.  But the real reason I love the Hilltoppers tonight is Bobby Rainey. Dude is a stud RB, who we will see taken in the draft. They are going to pound him all night. The Toppers are returning 20 starters this year and they got a running QB (kawjuan Jakes).  I will look for them to control the ball and stay within the number. How did my homey Bobby Rainey do against the Cats last year? How about 22 rushes for 184 yards and 2 TD’s. Love the Toppers tonight.

2011 College: 0-0

Good luck.


So one of the big stories yesterday on the interweb was that China is putting a ban on movies, television and books about time travel because the Government says it lacks “positive thoughts and meaning” and time travel can “casually make up myths…and weird plots.”

Today this video was released showing two kids hacking down a couple a cigs on the T.  In a normal society there are two obvious things wrong with this.  People can still smoke butts on public transportation. And this country allows toddlers to smoke.  I’m thrilled that China is disallowing people to even think about time travel.  If I had to bet, the Chinese would be the favorite to invent time travel.  Now that the Governemnet is discouraging it, I think it gives the US a slight edge – US -150 to China +300.  Once we pop this whole time travel thing I will be on the first Delorean back to 1955 and will pick up my copy of Biff’s Almanac.  I’ll then time travel forward to 2015 and win billions of dollars betting on sports.  I’ll take my winnings and invest heavily in a China based cigarette company and hire closet cigarette smoker Miley Cyrus as my spokesperson.  The youth of China will be riddled with emphysema in no time and the US will get back to world domination.
