El Pad's Weekly Betting Advice

First some randomness. How hard is it to eat no carbs for breakfast and why would someone choose to do that? Further let's say you didn't like eggs? Or egg whites. That makes it almost impossible right? Also for the working man who doesn't eat breakfast at home it's really hard to do that.

What's the deal with vitamins? Do you guys take a multi vitamin? How come the kinds available are priced so different? Like shouldn't all vitamins be about the same price. I mean if they all contain vitamins wouldn't you think they would get sourced in a similar way? Maybe it's because a brand like Nature's Way contains more natural additives than say Centrum which may or may not contain pulverized sheet metal bits. I feel I get enough vitamins or my daily allowance of vitamins through my meals but I'm probably dead wrong about that. My Dr. tried to sell me on Vita-Lea brand vitamins. They are like $30. He must be in bed with the sales rep or something.

Wife is funny, she's obsessed with everything about Fall season but Football. We got pumpkin candles all over the place, I saw the Halloween decoration tote in the hallway which means they'll be up soon. She's pumped. Then, football is on today too? So it's on Thursday now? Sunday and Monday? (And Satruday if you count college) R A, R?

unto my picks......Think Keef pointed out to everyone it was a rough first week. Still getting to know some teams. I got 5-11. Oof.

Miami -1 over BUFFARRO
Interesting game to pick considering both teams were impressive in Week one victories. Dolphins riding a high of beating the Pats pretty handily in their home opener and the Bills coming off an impressive overtime win on the road. A game I figured the Bears would easily win. So either the Bears have some kinks to work out including not getting manhandles at home or they aren't as good as I thought or the Bills are better than I thought. Fins win was more impressive and I like the way they ran the ball with the re-tooled offensive line. Think they pack their defense with them and beat Buffalo pretty good Sunday.

Jax +5.5 over SKINS
Is this line for real? How is it already assumed the Redskins are better than the Jaguars? Does it have something to do with allowing 34 straight points to the Eagles last week? Did anyone making the lines in Vegas watch the Redskins play last week? They were brutal. Anemic on offense. The torches for RGIII's head will be organizing soon enough.

TITANS -3.5 over Dallas
Hard to pick Dallas on the road with the stench from that home fart still lingering. Locker looked VERY good. Eager to see if it continues.

Arizona -3 over GIANTS
Hard to pick the Giants anywhere knowing they still have no fucking idea what to do on offense. I don't know why they think moving Eli around is a good idea. And when he drops back a pocket to throw from would be nice. I don't want to talk about it anymore I'm fittin' to throw a lamp.

New England -3 over MINNY
Impressive win for Minnesota but it could be the Rams, down to the 3rd stringer at QB, were just really bad. I don't feel like looking up the last time the Pats had back to back losses (in the same season) but I'm sure it was probably a long time ago and I'm sure Belichick/Brady combo is something stupid like 32-1 after a loss.

New Orleans -7 over BROWNS
First, looks like Josh Gordon is back soon ehough which fuck man I should have wasted a pick on him at some point but who knew? Second Rob Ryan's defense got record setting torched last week. The Browns don't have that kind of fire power so look for them to take it out on them and roll up some crooked numbers. NO D is a solid fantasy play this week IMO.

Falcons +5 over CINCY
Matt Ryan was surgical last week. I think the Bengals eek out a win but not by the spread. They will need to run the ball and control time of possession.....feed Jeremy Hill more. He hungry.

CAROLINA -2.5 over Detroit
The Lions looked great but the Giants played awfully poor for us to annoint Detroit. Cam is back. Kelvin Benjamin could be the playmaker I have been asking Carolina to develop/draft.....stay tuned. As a side note Greg Hardy is playing, he was found guilty by a judge for beating and choking his then girlfriend. He appealed so it's now pending a court date for trial by jury (that seems backwards) but anyway until he wins/loses the appeal both the NFL and Carolina organization are allowing him to play. Seems like a poor choice. If I'm Carolina don't I set an example to the league and to the fans and community by not allowing Greg to play? Even if it's a few games. It doesn't seem appropiate to let him play.....

TAMPA -6 over Rams
Can't take Rams right now. I imagine they will play better because it can't get any worse than last week but how much better? Also Bucs, please give Bobby Rainey the ball more. Make a "Sproles" package for him or something.

Seattle -6 over CHARGERS
I think I'm taking Seattle every week. They'll probably be giving every week and will probably have a winning record ATS.

Houston -2.5 over RAIDERS
Oakland looked pretty awful. J.J. Watt is impossible. He should be in the Avengers.

Jets +8 over GREEN BAY
New York seems stout enough on D to hang around in this one. Give Rodgers and company some fits early. Millner is back (not that I'm high on him but he is their #1 CB). Geno on the road, just in general, is a scary thought but spotting a good defensive team with 8 points that can run the ball 50 times...... i'm taking the points.

DENVER -13 over Cheifs
Denver O kind of sputtered at times. Particuarly in the second half. Thought the defense played pretty good. The Cheifs are like 2-9 since starting last season 9-0 or something like that. Losing Derrick Johnson is no bueno. Manning has racked up some gaudy #'s vs. the Cheifs and I see no reason why this game will be any different.

Bears +7 over NINERS
Bears should be able to move the ball on San Fran and be in this one all the way. I know it's the home opener in a new stadium on primetime but that's motivation for the Bears too.

INDY -3 over Eagles
Luck going to carve through the Eagles on Monday night. Give me that over 53.5 too.

El PAD's weekly bets


Simmons nailed it. Goodell is a joke but nothing he could ever do will pull us away from this game. Anyone boycotting the season because Ray Ray went Ike on his fiancé? Didn't think so. A child could be raped on the Dallas Star at midfield and the next week the NFL will get top ratings. It's a machine. Perhaps this is Al-Qaeda sending subliminal messages. Perhaps.

Weekly Betting. Can someone keep track of the record? Or is that supposed to be me?

Should I go back to choice bets or bet em all?

Your choice. Respond in the comments (why am I acting like more than 3 people read this?)

Ok, first week I'll hit all out the box but maybe choice, or alternate or whatever Im feeling that week since I'm the only one that fucking posts anyway.



Saints -3 @ ATLANTA
I saw Hard Knocks. Falcons are still soft. And they still have no one to cover Graham.

RAMS -3 over Vikes
Rams D can beat a team like Minnesota at home. They'll score enough. Heard Mike Sam likes cock.

Browns +7 over STEELERS
I don't like the Steelers this year, I've said this. I think they struggle similar to last year out the gate. I say they win this contest but not by a TD. Joe Haden is sneaky a top 3 corner. Yeah I said 3. 3.

Jags +10.5 over PHILLY
That Gus Bradley enthusiasm has reached Brooklyn. Jags scare the Birds.

JETS -5.5 over Oakland
I like the JETS this year. Geno sucks sheep ass but dat d will keep em relevant late in the year. They squash Oakland.

Cincy -1 over RAVENS
Tough call but if the Bengals are going to be a threat in the AFC they have to win within the division on the road. Eager to see the smashmouth running game they are promising.

BEARS -7 over Bills
Lock of the year. The Bills have looked atrocious. They already tuned out Marrone and the swirling ownership thing is a problem. Bears may drop 40.

Skins -3 over HOUSTON
I think RGIII will be in the pocket as long as the rush isn't coming. Can't walk away from the kids instincts. He will for sure miss some games this year. He makes plays with his legs in this one to squeak out a win.

CHEIFS -3 over Titans
Wanted to go Titans here but a home opener in Arrowhead is up there. Tall task for the whizzantors.

Pats -4 over FINS
No one is mentioning at least that I've heard about NE's defense. It's going to be stout this year.

BUCS -2.5 over Cam
No secret the world expects the Panthers to regress. Again do they have any wide receivers. Have I ranted yet on how they never have anyone in support of Cam on the outside? Bucs still have work to do, some people I saw picked them to compete for the division, I don't see it but whatever. Cover 2 has been around since TP was a toddler.

Niners -4 over COWBOYS
Have you read the Cowboys depth chart for their defense? Does Jerry know he has to draft and develop both sides of the ball? Is he already in Al Davis territory? God I hope he lives to be 120.

DENVER -7.5 over Colts
All day. Can the Colts protect Luck, on the road, vs. Von Miller and Demarcus Ware?

Giants +5.5 over LIONS
Just hoping Eli's confused face all pre-season was constipation.

Chargers +3 over ARIZONA
Take the over.

Red Zone here I come.

NFL Preview - Mad Busy Yo Version

NFC East
Philly by default because I'm officially worried about Elisha Norman Manning. RGIII sucks. Dallas sucks. You all know this already. It's Giants and Philly. We'll see. Fucking Bob McAdoo confusing the Eli. Fucker. Philly's defense is awful by the way. Under the radar story there. Even if they win the division they won't win shit in January with that sloppy ass D.

Philly 10-6
Giants 9-7
Skins 8-8 (Go back to my previews, like 80% of the time I have the skins at 8-8, so annoying right)
Boys 6-10 (Garrett fiiiiirrrrrreed)

NFC North
My favorite division to watch this year. Is it me or is this a stacked offensive division. No more NORRIS division defensive matches. This is balls to the wall air it out. Cutler with two, count em - TWO thousand yard receivers and Forte coming off a career year. Cutty gonna ball this year. BALL. I'm big on the Bears, this Trestman might be a genius. Rodgers is Rodgers. McCarthy is aloof I think. At times. And their defense still is shaky. Play Bridgewater man. Cmon. The Lions with offensive firepower too. I think they should slow it down a bit, feature Joique Bell and throw it early to Golden Tate who should open up the field a bit, a hair for Calvin......Ebron sucks. Waste of a pick. They needed a corner.

Bears 11-5
Packers 10-6
Detroit 8-8
Vikings 6-10

NFC West
STACKED. Bradofrd going down took some win out of the NFC West is the best division sails argument. Again Niners outside looking in. But they will still hurt people. Carlos Hyde might save their season. I still am sour on Kapernick. He's pocket passing, I just don't know. Seahawks are loaded. 12 wins all day. Arizona is much improved. Arians is gold. Ellington is going to have a monster year. Floyd is already BETTER than Fitz. Poor Rams. They seemed like they were ready to turn the corner.

Hawks 12-4
Arizona 11-5
49ers 9-7
Rams 7-9

NFC South
Hard Knocks is so boring. The Falcons might have the worst defense in the league. Bryan Cox is fucking hilarious though. Mike Smith's mandals are depressing. Carolina regresses, it's science. The Saints run away with this one. I got nothing on the Bucs.

Saints 13-3
Carolina 9-7
Falcons 8-8
Bucs 7-9

Division winners - Philly, Bears, Saints (bye), Hawks (bye)
Wild Card - Arizona, Packers
Wild Card Round - Bears over Packers (38-34), Arizona over Philly (41-31)
Divisional Weekend - Hawks over Bears (30-18), Saints over Arizona (44-35)
Championship Sunday (best weekend of footyball) - Saints over Hawks (24-17)


AFC East
So unfair the division stay shitty for all of Brady's life. So unfair. The Bills are trash. The Dolphins are confusing. The JETS are actually good until you watch Geno Smith play for more than 5 series. So tired of penciling them in. Seriously.

Pats 11-5
JETS 9-7
Dolphins 8-8 (Philbin fired, Ireland fired)
Bills 3-13

AFC North
Pretty good division here. Really like the Bengals this year. Like really. Totally unrelated but I have to watch the Beyonce VMA performance after this. She's incredible. Any chance the Steelers tuned out Mike Tomlin? I just dont vibe on the Steelers. Poor Cleveland. They'll be yelling for Manziel by week 3.

Bengals 12-4
Ravens 10-6
Steelers 7-9
Cleveland 5-11

AFC West
Fucking Chargers. Any other year they win this thing but Manning man. Gase will be a head coach this time next year. I really like the Chargers. No shot the Cheifs run out to the same start as last year. If MJD plays well watch out for Oakland. Two headed monster running attack with a limited DMC/MJD. I'd start Carr. Fucking nuts I know but Schaub aint the answer.

Broncos 13-3
Chargers 11-5
Oakland 9-7
Cheifs 8-8

AFC South
I'll tell you what. I fucking like the Jags to make some fucking noise this year. Fuck yeah I do. Fuck yeah. Jacksonville baby. Eat a dick. Unrelated but Melissa McCarthy is fucking highlarryus in The Heat. Totally hilarious. Totes mcgoats. Anyway about Bill Bradley. Too bad they don't have a QB. Colts? Eh. I happen to think Pagano is overrated. Nothing to do with the Lukemia thing. Bravo to him. But they have Luck. Better them than anyone else. QB league. Denver waxes them on Sunday night though. Titans suck.

Colts 10-6
Jags (yup Eat it) 9-7
Texans 7-9
Titans 5-11

Division winners : Broncos (bye), Bengals (bye) Pats, Colts
Wild Card : Chargers, Ravens
Wild Card rounds : Chargers over Pats, Ravens over Colts
Divisional Weekend : Broncos over Ravens, Bengals over Chargers
Championship Sunday : Broncos over Bengals

Super Bowl : Redemption is spelled B-R-O-N-C-O-S. Broncs over Saints 44-38

Very exciting Super Bowl.

I got to start working on my NFL preview. Right now all I truly know is the Cowboys will suck again. Show signs of not sucking then suck on National TV in heartbreaking Cowboy fashion and it will be awesome. And people will be fired. Also I'm on that "49ers will not make playoffs" bandwagon so jump off if you think i'm a mush. Few reasons, NFC West is now stacked, the backup to Kapernick is shit and they will need it and some injuries on defense. Also the GM hates Harbaugh's guts cuz he's a fucking maniac.

This insane amount of money pouring into the ALS foundation, few questions. How expensive is research? And that is just a general question. Because probably about a trillion dollars have been donated to all kinds of diseases, AIDS, cancer, heart disease, etc. Are diseases the one thing in this world that we can't throw money at to go away? Conspiracy theorists say they will never find a cure to keep the drug companies and network of specialists profitable. That is one conspiracy I could buy into, I don't but it's not out of this world. When greed is involved anything is possible.

Sometimes the inside part of a pretzel smells like fish skin.

Check the Emmys nominations, proves out my tv watching habits. Network TV just ain't good, cable dominates the landscape. Better writing.

Goldschlager must be pissed that Fireball is taking over the markets.

I think a Top Chef threesome of me Padma and Gail Simmons would be cool. Like first a fancy dinner, some champagne. Then a fancy hotel with a comfy bed, maybe some toys.

Putin better leave McDonald's alone.

Speaking of, Meiz you meant McDonald's regular ass hamburger right? Because their premium menu burgers are good, some very good. Further I noticed McDonald's has decided to play one of thier aces in the hole I always talked about. Grocery store coffee. CHA CHING.

I'm surprised there aren't more corporation espionage movies out there or more popular. Maybe there isn't enough action? Michael Clayton was the last good one I thought. Even though that was like a law firm type deal. They use coporate espionage as it's own twist within a movie they need to make some movies cenetered around it. Happens all day everyday. All espionage is cool. National security, corporate interests, political (what makes House of Cards so good). The word of the day is Espionage.

Stop trying to get me to give a fuck about the FIBA basketball tournament. Lick my balls. Wake me up when we hit the beaches of Rio.

When Hulk Hogan dies I'm going to his funeral.

Think this : teenage boys spank banks are so much better than ours were

Rob Dyrdek is 40. Carry on.

Gravity is ridick* on a nice big tv.

Weekly dive into the mind of El Padrino

When I drink a ice cold beer, espeacially one that I have been craving all day, I think to myself, man can life get any better?

Jim Abbott is fucking awesome. Random thought but dude pitched in the major leagues with no right hand.

I'm such a wussbag now I can't get through an episode of Real Sports without losing it during one of their segments.

Kobe is #4 on the all time scoring list? Holy fucks. I spaced on that one.

T minus 2 weeks until my cousins wedding, the baby of the family, and still no speech written by me yet.


I fucking hate play doh

American Beauty is so weirdly exceptional.

So instead of donating money to find a cure people just dump a bucket of ice on themselves? Instead of paying taxes can we just do that too?

Oh when we talk about blowjobs are we talking like, from start to finish or does any amount of time with our collective cock in our respective wives mouth count?

I had a corporate culture meeting today and totally had shit on my mind to say but didn't. Not smat*. Just figured once I started I wouldn't be able to stop so I held it in.

These Chip Kelly is a god articles have to stop.

Have no clue what happened on that race track last week but it seems like getting out of your car while cars are racing by you is a good way to get hurt.

Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nothing to Fuck Wit

You know who loves that Dalton deal? Big Ben Raplisberger. He gonna cash that check soon.
Another year of football another year of fantasy football torture.

So Russia is basically starving it's own people by banning U.S. food. Good look. Hope everyone likes potatoes.

Hawaii is getting double teamed.

WAYYYYY to much Ninja Turtle talk. It's just a movie you guys.

Tulo talk:
sick and tired of losing = wants traded
but they won some while he was there no? wasnt he part of two incredible september runs, one resulting in a pennant and a world series appearance? More than some superstars.

Baseball so humbling. Prodigy like Harper just scuffling like never before. Baseball is the hardest sport to play in my opinion. You fail 7 out of 10 times and are still considered a great hitter. Couple that with having to have decent range at your position or throwing a fastball that doesnt get hit.

If anyone says Golf I will donkey punch you on sight. Golf isn't even a spurt* COLOV nigga.

Gelato >>>>>>> Ice cream

The news is pretty fucking sad, sadder than usual I'd say. ISIS, Ebola, Ukraine, missing planes, John Kerry, African leaders at white house, Gaza, Israel, jesus christ man.

Anything else you guys wanna talk about during the week? Let me know I'll write a post about whatever you want.

Steak is delicious

whats the wildest game you've eaten?  Bison over rice doesn't count H

I had goat it was good.  Elk was super lean but tasty.  Rabbit I guess was the gamiest.  I liked it though.

Thought The Internship was pretty funny.  People gon hate.

My two cents on Lebron.
The backlash from the Decision is the reason why he is going back.  The sentiment of returning home is 2nd.  You all know that right.  He was trying to right a wrong.  The media and most of the fans ate it up.  Scar tissue remains.  Time will heal the wound and if he wins a ship in Clev all will be forgotten but if he doesn't -- the scar will last forever.


Bach party AC Aug 2nd I planned it.  I'm the best man.  Shit is gonna be HDH.  Old Homestead at 10pm.  Some group gambling.  Got a rate for bottle service (which I detest) that wasn't bad at the Gypsy Bar then more group gambling.  Midgets are scheduled for 2am.  Then back down for gambling, individual I imagine.  Gonna need like 2 g's.

Boys will be boys.

Not sure you heard me, perhaps there is a baseball game in the background that is distracting you but


Seinfeld fans - It's coming to Netflix.

Imaginext Toys have taken over my living room.

Fucking Brew Crew huh Meiz?

There's Only So Much Time Left In This Crazy World, I'm Just Crumblin' Erb

Concert is this Sunday. CAN'T FUCKING WAIT. Been trying to push some of the guys to not be trashed for it, to no avail. Fuck them. I'm going to remember the most important concert of my life. They're not on my level.

I wish my one cousin was at my little cousin's grad party on Sunday. She's the director of marketing for Summerfest. I wanted to get a word in with her for maybe some VIP or backstage tickets. I hate getting big-timed by family. That shit is foul. Regardless, it's going to be a great time. I refuse to let anybody ruin my day on Sunday.

Brewers Talk
Still in first place. This season has been amazeballs so far. Best start in club history, and national media is still not talking about the team. I love it. Have you guys seen the Lucroy All-Star ad? It's pretty damn funny from our perspective. The Cards did not react well, and that makes it even funnier.

That's good stuff right there. Fuck the Cardinals.  Because MLB is a shitshow of an organization, I can't embed the video on blogger. Fuck them.

Work Talk
New supervisor is coming around. She still can't do a lot of stuff the rest of us can do. I wish she'd ask for help with learning how to do things instead of just leaving it for somebody else. That kills us on Wednesdays and Thursdays. My opinion is that the supervisor needs to know how to proficiently do EVERYTHING. She's on board with us as far as realizing and communicating that the sales force expects us to do too much. It's been awful lately. Formerly good salespeople have turned into absolute trainwrecks.

Bron Opts Out!
No big deal.  Yet.

The Bron/Kobe/Melo nonsense is just that. Nonsense. A worn-down 30 year old LBJ ain't going to the Lakers or the Western Conference.  He's coming to the Bucks. S.

Music Video Time
I'm listening to Southernplayalisticadillacmusic, so we get the title track. Good times.

That's all I've got today, kids.  Have a good rest of the week.  I know I'll have a bomb weekend.

Summer time

today I will talk about Iraq and food allergies so skip to comments if you've had enough now

I predict a major war (perhaps called WWIII) within the next ten years between western civilazation countries and their allies vs. radical islam militants and various terrorists groups and I think it's unavoidable.

Only way to beat this ISIS and Al Qaeda groups like them all over the middle east and within Russia's borders is to just kill them, just kill them all. Eventually I suppose they will come back through another root of evil somewhere but I have to think this will buy us (by us I mean the world) some time before that happens. Sort of like killing off the Nazi's history does really repeat itself.

If you are asking yourself why do we need to go to war or why do we have to get involved the answer is relatively simple. Money. Most of it in the form of oil. But really economics is the bottom line answer. And fucking democracy of course. We figured out how to operate a country 238 years ago - we have the blueprint yet we still have to force our plan unto the world and to countries that were born hundres and hundreds of years before us. We can't ignore this stuff.

Besides if given the opportunity these groups would wipe the earth clean of us. They think we are the devil. They actually say that and the style of warfare they practice is not traditional, they resort to killing children and women and random innocent civilians. They don't attack army bases or police forces. They just run through villages killing people that work and live. Average joes. Or Average Mohammeds in Iraq's case. They won't stop. They won't ever stop. At some point as a super power we have to get together with our allies and exterminate them.

Where the fuck did all these food allergies come from? First of all if someone tells you they are allergic to gluten just punch them in the face. Because chances are they are not. It's not even officially listed as an allergy, more like an intolerance like lactaid or in Meiz's case pussy. Only people suffering from Celiac disease need to be on gluten free diets.

Only 1% of America's population (that are actually here legally) have a bad reaction to gluten. Most people don't even know what gluten is. It's a proten in grains and wheat - it's a natural food organism.

I'd be pissed running a restuarant and having to cater to all these allergies like nut allergy and tree-nut allergy and oil allergy, seed allergy, god this country is a bunch of hipster pussies I swear.

We're gonna get rolled in WW III. S.

Late on this but have always thought those limo buses were death traps.

Officially summer this weekend so eat ice cream, bring summery beer to every party you get invited too and work the tan. Except for you freaks who live in Arizona/Florida. Been doing that since February I imagine. Pshychos.

Friday, June 13, 2014

BOO! It's Friday the 13th. Gay.

World Cup this world cup that. Everyone is a fan. I ain't gonna front and pretend I like soccer. Will I watch it? Probably not. But if I do I wont go all rah rah on and on about it. With that said go Italy! S.

Speaking of bandwagon. It's like all the Ranger fans came out of the woodwork last week. When there were down 3-0 the other day they all went back home, then today they were back out. Man those people are the worst.

On Fathers day I think about my dad of course but lately I've been thinking about my grandfather. He was so old school I think he might have built the school. Just remember all the time we used to spend together and smile. I hope I make it on this earth long enough to fool around with grandkids. I aint rushing life, just saying. Happy fathers day to you guys.

CMEP asking what I want to do I'm like I just want to relax. Really what I want is a BJ and a steak. Hook it up.

12 weeks until real football

Veep is the funniest show going right now. Just LOL'ing everywhere when its on.

She's a Bernard but Doris Burke does a fine job on ABC. Better than most men.

Patty Mills has a lot of energy

3 more weeks then vacation and boy do I need it

A nickel bag gets sold in a park in Brooklyn I WANT IN

I make the best potato and eggs.

I'm pretty much full time at the catering hall now. It's the Matre'd then me as far as an org chart goes. It's actually fun at times. I like the business. I also applied for the sales job which is what it sounds like. Commission based, you book a wedding you get a flat fee $300. Waiting to hear back. Gonna write a book, a self-help motivational book. "From Bus Boy to Matre'D : How to climb the ranks of a wedding factory"

Wife not a fan I'm rarely home but it's a sacrifice I make to make sure her and the kids have all they ever wanted. She wants to move to NJ. Sometimes she is the worse.

I just don't get the big deal with grass. Grass makes me sneeze*. "But the kids would like a backyard."
But then I have to clean it and make it look nice. I'd like to see how she cleans this house too, this imaginary house in NJ.
And me getting home at 8pm every night because the commute sucks left nuts.
And we'd need to buy another car which is the worst asset to own ever.
Fuck houses and fuck NJ.

If you don't think what just happened with the prisoner swap between US and Taliban was fucked up you belong in psych ward. Or you don't care. Which is fine too.
Like was there no one in Bams corner that knew this guy may have been not so noble? A deserter in the armed forces is like child rape. It's pretty much the worse thing you can do. Let alone the exchange itself. IT was a Bill Simmons pu-pu platter NBA 25 cents on the dollar trade. Also I thought we don't negotiate with terrorists? And who the fuck decided it was okay for the Taliban DAD to go on TV? Jesus Christ what a clusterfuck.

I have a 2nd generation IPOD that still goes strong but only when it's charged overnight. So weird. It needs like 8 hours of sleep or something.

I'm such a pussy when it comes to the dentist that I've dealt with a toothache that occasionally becomes infected for a little over a year now. NS.
What makes this decision easier is when they pull the tooth I will need an implant which is not covered and costs $2100-$3000 depending.....

Stocks and Sports LLC still a dream of mine along with a restaurant bar and grill called Cheeks.

Aren't kids hilarious? Can't wait for Tem and Jug to have talking kids. Lil miniature comics.

Don't Want No AIDS, No Clap, Or No Rabies

Work Talk(kind of)
 New supervisor is cool enough.  She's the same age as me.  She sat in with me on this past Sunday, we had some conversation, had some laughs, yadda yadda yadda.  I'm not about to be referring to her as "my boss" or "bosslady" when I'm out here in these streets teaching & showing her how to do her job, though.  Nope, nuh uh.  The main things she lacks so far are the willingness to take control, and leading by example.  Rolls in at five after 8, and jets at five to 5.  No bueno, not cool, especially when the others are in early and leave late.  Poor example to set.

New supe asked me about the music I listen to,(OXFORD COMMA, KEITH) on Sunday.  Told her all kinds, but mainly rap.  The Sirius is off during the weekend, so she pulled up some "rap" shit on Pandora on her phone.  Had to quickly make it known I don't listen to THAT rap.  Jesus, so much new rap is awful.  (Paging Dr. Padrino)  These kids have nothing good or new to rap about, and that all seem to have the same cadence.  Get you r own fucking flow, boys.

As mentioned yesterday, it appears my existing co-workers just don't listen to bosslady or new supe when we have our weekly department meeting.  This is incredibly frustrating.  I can't stand poor listeners.  I don't know when this shift happened.  I think my feelings on this harkens back to my days in school.  I was the no homework, no notes, but great test-taker.  I'm very particular and specific when it comes to things people say.  My Dad is a cop.  I have to be that way, because that's how he essentially trained me.  Growing up, I got a lot of "That's not what you said" business.  Now, he's getting older, and I get to flip that game on him, and he knows I'm right when I do it.  An eye for an eye.

NBA Talk
I'm pumped for the Heat/Spurs Finals rematch.  As usual, I'm rooting for Bron & them boys.  I love the twitter meme of Big Shot Bosh.  It works both ways, and is always hilarious.  Bosh hits a big shot?  #BigShotBosh.  Bosh clangs a big shot?  #BigShotBosh.  Heat in six. 

Me & a couple of buddies have been spending the last month or so figuring out our NBA player equivalents from back in the day.  It's pretty fun.  Last week Deluxe nominated me for Boris Diaw.  I was fake pissed at first, but then he broke it down.  "Big man, handles, range, blocks shots, rebounds, bangs inside".  When he put it that way, I was okay with it.

Brewers Talk
I should have made a hat bet.
Honestly, the Brewers are pretty fucking good, save for Lyle Overbay.  I wish to hell they would have kept Juan Francisco for the lefty part of the 1B platoon.  Mark Reynolds has been a joy so far.  Get up there and hit a bunch of dingers.  To hell with the Ks.  Ks are wildly overrated in regards to hurting an offense.  A K with a runner on 1st isn't a double play ball.

Ron figured our the batting order, too.  Granted he had help from The Deputy.  They're also now exploring the possibility of moving the pitcher to the 8 hole.  I hope they do that.

Fuck the Cardinals.

26 days!  So pumped.

On Saturday I fashioned myself a bee trap out of a two liter bottle for the balcony.  I hate bees more than I hate the Cubs.  That's a lot of hatred.  They tend to build hives under the overhangs and eaves of my building.  I am the bee slayer.

ATLiens is over.  On to Ready To Die.  All time GREAT album.  Stand up, Brooklyn.

Neighbor Watch!
A new family moved in across the street last week.  They're Flatlanders.  Fucking Flatlanders.  The garage is still loaded with stuff.  They seem nice enough.  I'll have to hip them to Summer Sounds.  Best way for noobs to get in with the community, IMO.

I'm gassed, I think.  I'll let this night ride out.

Word to Big Bird.

Late add:  Big eyeglasses make every chick look like Shock G in the Humpty video.  TERRIBLE look.
