25 million reasons to live

No, I don't have 25 million reasons to live, but today I have 136 reasons in my wallet.

First of all, here's the suicide pool update...

WHO'S IN
ElP - Steelers
Cam - Broncos
Eric - Chargers
Thejaywhite - Broncos
Temwr - Bears
Bryan - Broncos

WHO'S OUT
Los - Redskins

Allow me to direct this next few sentences to my close personal friend Los, a man who I have known since we went to school together in second grade. I think I can say this to him without reservation since I know him so well... YOU DUMBASS!

I only say that for two reasons. First of all, you seemed like you regretted that pick the minute you made it. I could tell by the posting on the page right after I put it up. Secondly, everyone else this week picked teams and won with them that you could have used. You could have rode the Broncos bandwagon and lived another week.

But no, you had to hitch your wagon to Daniel Snyder and Tom Cruise. (It sounds so much worse when I word it like that, doesn't it?)

While it takes big hairy brass ones to do that which is commendable, and in a way I see why you did it because they were supposed to beat a team like Tennessee at home, I think we can classify this as an official suicide pool ball dip. Iam, please administer the punishment.

I would like to point out that Los has actually won money in a suicide pool in his past, so he is not an idiot when it comes to these things. And I love him in a very heterosexual way. So the dumbass comment should not be taken literally. However, I think this is the first week I was genuinely surprised by someone's pick. I just don't think you use a team like the Redskins under any circumstances unless you somehow have made it into week 15 and have much less options. Just my opinion. Anyone have a thought?

Onto other business...

- There's a game 7 in Major League Baseball tonight.

And as a Phillies fan it pains me to say this, but I find myself hoping the Mets win for one reason and one reason only... I want to see our boys ElP and Iam make a bet and have to follow through on it. It would make the blog so much fun to see those two go at it on the board throughout the World Series. And I know there are other Mets and Tigers fans who post here. So that would be classic. However, I don't know of any Cards fans who post here.

If the Cards win, we all would probably all hop on the Tigers bandwagon and it would be a lovefest on the blog. But if the Mets win, we then have legitimate tension between groups of fans. And of course, that makes this blog much more fun.

- You know, maybe I missed something. I was out of commission for a while on Tuesday. But did anyone post this video anywhere on the comments?

If not, then it simply must be posted here. If it was posted already, it definitely deserves a second look. But this video has all the words with no bleeps.

Dennis Green melts down after Monday night... UNCENSORED

Meltdowns... you gotta love 'em!

And just for fun, let's link a few classic sports meltdowns from Youtube for our enjoyment...

Various NFL coach meltdowns from PTI

Classic Mike Tyson

And from the world of comedy...

Andy Kaufman losing it on Jerry Lawler on David Letterman

Bill Hicks losing it on a heckler

The classics never get old!

Dennis Green...how do you not block the defensive player of the year?

El Padrino said...

soon as my boss goes to lunch im crankin up the volume and laughing at Denny Green all day.

hi bill

temwr said...

I LOVED it for the after the game interview when they asked Urlacher how he was making so many tackles and he said something to the effect of "it's pretty easy when they aren't blocking you."

LOVED it.

jugdish said...

That's a bold strategy, let's see if it pays off for em Cotton!

anonymous said...

::diiiiiip::

El Padrino said...

i wont think about a future bet with IAM just yet.

Game 7, 8:19pm

The Rev said...

To the 6 guys left...

You can now make your week 7 suicide picks.

The Rev said...

That's fine, ElP.

But if the Mets win, I hope a potential bet will be our big topic tomorrow. I wanna see some real trash talking going on here.

Isiah Thomas said...

Hal McRae's blow up was pretty good.

El Padrino said...

I'm posting it on my betting column
because I won't be around tw. Taking my series 7 test, it's like 6 hrs long or something.
i'll check in later that day to see if Iam accepts.

The Rev said...

I tried to find that on Youtube, but couldn't.

Hal McRae is a classic!

Isiah Thomas said...

I haven't been into the NLCS at all so far. I prob won't tune in for game 7 and everyone loves game 7. I'll keep an eye on it and tune in if its close.

Isiah Thomas said...

good luck with that EP.

Beth82678 said...

Now I always assumed the Kaufman-Lawler thing on Letterman was staged by Kaufman. It just seems so like something he would do. Does anyone know for sure if it was real or not?

And I'm with you Rev. As a Braves fan I never thought I'd root for the Mets, but I want to see that bet come into play so I'm probably rooting for them tonight.

anonymous said...

bring on the next loser!

The Rev said...

Jerry Lawler finally admitted in his appearance in Man On The Moon with Jim Carrey playing Andy that it was all staged. He had kept his silence for years before finally fessing up.

That whole storyline was a classic though. Andy played it to the hilt.

anonymous said...

what was that site for the lord of gamez thingy?

and did zeke get 26 on golf for the full 18? thats pretty much on fire.. i didnt really play that game until yesterday.

Isiah Thomas said...

LOG

26 for the full 18.

Stiggy said...

I might be too late with this comment, but I found the Hal Mcrae meltdown. Fox Sports has it. But since I can't figure out how to get the link to work, I'll leave it up to one of you guys.

Go Mets!

Isiah Thomas said...

"WASHINGTON -- The FBI interviewed a Milwaukee resident Thursday who officials believe was involved in posting Internet threats about dirty bomb attacks on NFL football stadiums this weekend. The threats appeared to be phony."

Meiz...WTF are you doing?

The Rev said...

How do you do a screenshot of a game?

I just got 3767 on the Pendulum and I want it acknowledged!

anonymous said...

green bay sucks now, what do u expect.

Isiah Thomas said...

anonymous said...

Rev, one way is to hit your Print Screen button (upper right of keyboard), and then open powerpoint, word, or a photo program, and hit paste.. print screen copies a snapshot of exactly what's on your screen.

and youre a bastard, b/c i JUST sent in my 3435 score, but now the gauntlet is down.. im coming for you.

Isiah Thomas said...

the pendulum game is blocked here at work....boo.

Rev did you do the short shots or long shots approach?

The Rev said...

I got in Da Zone, baby!

Los said...

Big words, Smokin' - refresh my memory - what week were you eliminated again, by the way?

Spaceman Spiff said...

fuck that i turned in a pendulum high score yesterday and it didnt get posted yet and its already beat, im gonna beat rev fo sho now

The Rev said...

At least I got eliminated picking the Patriots. I can make a case that a good team had a bad week.

You get what you deserve when you hitch the wagon to the Skins.

Isiah Thomas said...

I just got up to 170 in tennis (personal best) and am still well short of Spiff.

I'm gonna keep working on it. I will not be denied.

The Rev said...

Long shots in the beginning, short shots after 2000

You can take more long shots when the top walls are wider and closer together.

The Rev said...

I'm setting the standard in the chopper game too.

1034 will be the score to beat. Not my best ever (I once got into the 1500's), but this is the highest score I can prove.

The Rev said...

In case you haven't noticed, LOG is linked now on the front.

anonymous said...

chopper game?

and i got 9 in tennis.. what place am i in?

El Padrino said...

thanks zeke

by the way
good job in ripping Greg Anthony

El Padrino said...

back to the drawing board rev
just posted a 1064 in chopper

Spaceman Spiff said...

rev do NOT bother even submitting your pendulum score, i just got 4420, so keep trying in futility

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm gonna play a few quick games of Sonic, Tetris and Pac-Man just to get my name in lights some more.

I can't get past level 2 in Sonic - its impossible.

The Rev said...

4420...

damn!!!

The Rev said...

Question for Zeke...

How the hell did you get a hole in one on 13? I was playing the game of my life, and ruined it with a 5 on 13.

anonymous said...

4362, i was close, then i choked.

Spaceman Spiff said...

man of my word, i think my technique is flawless

The Rev said...

I can beat 1064 in chopper. I've done it before. Just gotta prove it.

anonymous said...

zekes got cheat codes.

Spaceman Spiff said...

uh oh, that means iam is capable, i wont worry about beating you until you beat me

The Rev said...

1329 on Chopper.

It's on!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Hey, hey, hey. If I were to blow something up, it wouldn't be NFL stadiums. Maybe Wrigley.

penguin batting game

Isiah Thomas said...

fuuuuuuuck. I just got 65,000 in Pac Man and it didn't load my score. Didn't get the screen shot either. Fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Isiah Thomas said...

blocked.

If you go to the pendulum game link and go to the url and delete the extension and get to just the .com or .org part it takes you to a directory of like 100 games.

anonymous said...

im coming for spiff on pendulum.. oh yes, it will be mine.

Spaceman Spiff said...

new score to beat 4663

anonymous said...

from WWL's main page (hi bill!)...

"Oliver Perez -- the worst pitcher who's ever started a Game 7."

ouch.

Spaceman Spiff said...

if cards lose, blame it all on carpenter, cy young winner cant win 1 out of 2 games? soiling the sheets

temwr said...

I must be the only one doing work today.

anonymous said...

anybody else see "Batteries Not Included" for this pendulum game character?

The Rev said...

You are Temwr.

That link to the penguin batting is actually HERE

The first link was giving me trouble.

It's such a stupid game. I mean really.

But I bet you all can't beat 291.3

I'm submitting the link to Steve and a screen shot. Let the penguin bashing begin.

The Rev said...

SOn of a bitch!

I'm done. I'd better do some work.

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev I take your assault on my Tetris score seriously.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i have 321 screenshot bitches for penguin, do not submit your weak scores

Isiah Thomas said...

Batteries Not Included has been on a lot recently. Its on one of those obscure movie channels like IFC or something. Saw part of it the other day.

Spaceman Spiff said...

loved 'batteries not included' as a kid. also enjoyed 'short circuit'

Isiah Thomas said...

Number 5 is alive.

anonymous said...

johhny five, alive!

i loved number 2, when he got spray painted by gangs and, if i remember correctly, started speaking like a mexican gang banger.

ahhh the 80s.

Isiah Thomas said...

was it johnny or #5? either way he'll always have a place in my heart.

The Rev said...

That was a little more than an assault on your Tetris score...

that was a drive by on your weak ass score!

BOOM!!!

El Padrino said...

i smacked that penguin 320.9

Isiah Thomas said...
This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.
Spaceman Spiff said...

EP, 321 is still score to beat for penguin

El Padrino said...

DOH!!!!!

El Padrino said...

just tied it up

321

screen shot sent!

anonymous said...

johhny 5/number five, he was called both, cause he wanted a "real" name i think.

now im gonna have to watch those..

Spaceman Spiff said...

i dont think it can be beat we will be there forever

The Rev said...

Oh by the way...

5002 on Pendulum just achieved.

EAT IT, BITCHES!

The Rev said...

I may have to retire from Pendulum.

I want to simply be the first man who cracked 5000. That's immortality right there!

Kinda like the guy who broke the 4 minute mile first. You all can beat my score all you want. I'll just be Roger Bannister.

Spaceman Spiff said...

rev, dont think the pendulum has a limit, i will beat it by tomorrow

El Padrino said...

323.4 spiff
screen shot sent

Isiah Thomas said...

but rev what happens when someone gets 6000 then 7000 then 8000....

its a vicious cycle.

Isiah Thomas said...

because I'm petty iam....

imdb has him officially listed as "#5". Not to say he wasn't refered to as Johnny 5.

I am a small, small person.

Isiah Thomas said...

my 26 in golf is like Dimaggio's hitting streak....it just can't be broken.

Beth82678 said...

You know, in track & field they keep seperate records for men and women. I think LOV needs to do the same for the computer games. :-)

Isiah Thomas said...

Title IX won't apply to our petty games. You're one of us Beth.

whocares said...

Steve Guttenberg. Alley Sheedy. 80's Comedy Gold.

ToddPacker said...

zeke,

I got a 27 a couple of times, but I think I can shoot a 25 if everything goes right...so look the hell out Joe D

ToddPacker said...

EP

you going to class or watching game 7?

Isiah Thomas said...

good luck TP. I've stopped playing golf, if you beat it then it will become my mission in life to lower the score once again. I know I left 2 strokes on the front nine.

El Padrino said...

im skipping class
probably study til about the 5th inning, but perioidcally check score, then from there i'll watch til the end and cram afterwards until i fall asleep

this is going to be a disaster

note to self:
never schedule a series 7 test during the month of october while the mets are leading the division by12 games.

anonymous said...

zeke,

technically he was product 'number 5', but once he became "alive", then his catch phrase was 'johnny 5 alive'. so he name was #5, as the habib guy always called him, but he gave himself the name johnny 5.

just to distinguish.

we're very small.

and im gonna ball dip that 5000 at some point.. oh its coming.

The Rev said...

There are no separate girls scores in the world. You're one of the guys here.

Besides, what fun would it be to see you and Stiggy beating each other?

Wait a minute... I may have worded that wrong.

ToddPacker said...

That’s good to hear....because not watching game 7 is dangerously close to ball-dip territory

The Rev said...

It can go to 6000, 7000, 8000 etc.

I just want it to be known that The Rev cracked 5000 first.

I gotta have something to brag about, damn it!

The Rev said...

I can't get that damn penguin farther than 316.8

anonymous said...

i do however give the Rev a E-salute for cracking 5 G's.

The Rev said...

From what I can tell, pendulum becomes a real bitch after 5000. Them upper walls get teeny.

The Rev said...

Thank you Iam.

I just hope I can pass the drug test now. I don't want my score tainted by allegations.

jugdish said...

What is the high score on Tetris again???

Beth82678 said...

Hey, it was worth a try on the seperate records.

I tell you though, hiring employers may want to add a "Do you ever visit Lordz of Vengeance?" question to their future interviews. With as much posting as is going on today about scores, I can't imagine any of you getting much work done.

temwr said...

317.1 on the penguin not bad, but not really 323 either.

temwr said...

320.5 now...I am getting there.

anonymous said...

wait, we're having drug tests?

im not submitting anymore..
a silent athlete is a good athlete.

Isiah Thomas said...

Penguin is blocked for me, I feel so left out.

The Rev said...

Hey, I got my work done.

It wasn't much, but it's done.

Stiggy said...

I've only been able to hit the penguin 320.3 ft. I'm trying, though, real hard. Must beat the high score. It is my mission today.

whocares said...

Stiggy, arent you a teacher? Shouldnt you be molding the minds of our youth? Not hitting penguins?

Isiah Thomas said...

Perhaps the biggest WTF to date

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Beth82678 said...

While everyone's distracted by the penguin game, figured I'd slip in a high score on the helicopter game. 1559, and I should definitely be able to do better.

El Padrino said...

zeke saw this yesterday
didnt even think to post it
i'd make a terrible reporter

temwr said...

323.4 on penguin...a tie. I'll take it.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

323.5 on Penguin bitches!!! hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

anonymous said...

that story is screwed the hell up.. he cut her up and left her burned head on the stove?

WTF!!



(in his defense, she was probably asking for it, right?)

Stiggy said...

I'm a sub. I couldn't find a full-time job this year. It's actually my first year in the profession. I worked in an office for almost five years then decided to give that up to teach. I'll be back to subbing next week so I might not be commenting as much.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

This is bullshit I don't know how to send my score.

temwr said...

son of a bitch...323.5? I am sticking with my 323.4 and calling it a day. I had a russian judge and she mugged me at least .3.

temwr said...

It took me a hour to figure out how to do a screen shot.

Hit the Print Screen button. When your score is on the screen.
Open up paint.
And go to edit then paste, it magically pastes it into paint.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

and then what?

temwr said...

save it as a bmp file or whatever and email the file to the email addy on the lordzofgames.com page.

I think it is lordzofgames@yahoo.com but don't quote me on that.

anonymous said...

i brought my digital camera in and took a picture of my computer desk.

now i just have to figure out how to get it off the camera and onto the computer.

anybody know how to transfer from a 35mm?

temwr said...

umm, at first i just printed my score, scanned it into the computer and though of doing it that way...but our scanner is shitty and you couldn't read my score, so i had to learn how to do a screen shot thing...computers make me feel so dumb. i know a fair amount about them and how to run them and I think I am all good and then something like this rolls around and i feel like a dumbass.

Beth82678 said...

OK, just tied meiz with a 323.5. Who needs seperate records for women? And if I email my score in before meiz can figure it out, I think I should be listed first. :-)

anonymous said...

ya know, not much was said of the recent steriod suspensions... but shaun rogers from the Lions got suspended bc of a weight-loss supplement.

how gizay is that?

anonymous said...

the race is on for first submission...

temwr said...

I submitted my 2nd place score, just because I figure everyone above me will fail their drug tests and I will be declared champ.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

that's crap! my e-mail is taking forever to send the message. Damn DSL. Bossman needs to pony up for cable.

temwr said...

323.5 for me...now

Beth82678 said...

Hey, if I test positive I'll just do like Angel Martino at the 88 Olympics and claim it was cause of birth control pills.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I think ties should be listed.

Spaceman Spiff said...

you guys sound old

Tetris high score...60,557

anonymous said...

mens rec league basketball -

how do you politely tell someone to stop shooting all the time?

last week i used the "lets not shoot unless we got people under the basket".. that failed.

we use a church's gym.. so i cant curse or kill him.

Beth82678 said...

Iam, if you're in a church gym, you don't need to be asking that question here. Just ask yourself, "What would Jesus do?"

anonymous said...

jesus wouldve used my Nolan Ryan-like pitching arm and rifled the ball at the kid.

and then we wouldve gang stomped him.

jesus is like bobby knight when it comes to hoops. homie dont play that.

temwr said...

Either don't pass to him...ever.

Or just start shooting from half court and say "I thought we were just throwing up crazy shots at bad times, that's what XXXX was doing."

Beth82678 said...

"And Jesus kicketh thy ass, as thee took unnecessary shots."

anonymous said...

ah yes, beth quoteth from the book of Dr. J.

verily verily, i say unto you.

jugdish said...

I think we should post the worst scores on these games too...for example, I just got a 28 on the copter game. In my defense, my phone rang.

Do we need screen shots to prove these scores?

anonymous said...

whats the most 'minus' score u can get on pendulum?

i think im somewhere in the 20s.

Isiah Thomas said...

iam...

1) "inadvertant" elbow while going for a rebound.

2) "accidental" trip as you run up the court.

either/or. Maybe both if he keeps it up.

anonymous said...

an accidental slap in the face, instead of a high five, after he launches one of the patented "set shot" 3s.

El Padrino said...

CABLE GUY!!!!!!!!!!!!

temwr said...

after 2 bosses of that sonic game it just ends.

Isiah Thomas said...

the hoops scene in Along Came Polly is funny.

"WHITE CHOCOLATE"

"LET IT RAIN"

Isiah Thomas said...

tem how the hell do you get passed that one loopdity loop in the middle of level 2? I run out of momentum. I suck.

temwr said...

I hold the down button and go into one of those tucked in spin things. Then let go and it shoots you like a cannon...maybe you hit the down bar and space bar...

temwr said...

I wonder if that penguin game tops out at 323.5.

The Rev said...

I just hit 322.9 in the penguin game.

Beth actually beat my best ever score at the chopper game. Sucks for me.

Tetris... I had a feeling someone would set the bar much higher.

I'm just glad to be the first, and still only 5000 man in pendulum.

The Rev said...

I just whipped a -25 on the pendulum for kicks.

temwr said...

Pac Man needs at least 50K before you should even bother submitting. Does it have a high score yet?

The Rev said...

And one suggested side contest...

How far can you hit the penguin on the fly? I'm talking one fly ball where the penguin lands head first in the snow and stops there?

I hit the little bastard at 206.

Spaceman Spiff said...

rev, you are finished, i ran a 1 minute mile

Spaceman Spiff said...

i hit the pengiuin 207, no shot for it tho

Spaceman Spiff said...

but you cant even mention that you were to 5000 first anymore because i broke not 6000, not 7000, but 8000. 8074 final score

temwr said...

>8K deserves a golf clap.

clap
clap
clap

Isiah Thomas said...

saving your Pac Man score is tough. As soon as you lose your last life you have to get your score shot. I tried to wait till the part where it says "enter your name" or whatever and could never get my score back.

Isiah Thomas said...

8000+ is sick.

Spaceman Spiff said...

is anyone even trying to beat the tennis score

Isiah Thomas said...

I got up to 170 then choked. I gave up after that.

The Rev said...

I give it up, Spiff. You da man...

for now!

Spaceman Spiff said...

i have carpal tunnel

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I had a sweet pac-man score. The end game screen doesn't show a score. You gotta catch it just as you're dying.

Beth82678 said...

I think I may have just hit the helicopter equivalent of Zeke's 26 at golf or Spiff's 8k in Pendulum.

3320

Good thing too or I'd have been late for work.

Spaceman Spiff said...

nice job beth, i cant handle the copter

The Rev said...

3320 on the copter...

Damn, if I wasnt engaged already, I'd marry you just because I now know how good you are with your hands.

That's just obscene. I didn't think 3320 was possible on the copter.

JFreak said...

I got -29 on pendulum.

And that's the farthest it will go.

I'm positive.

Spaceman Spiff said...

new tennis high is 309

Isiah Thomas said...

today was another ground breaking day at LOV.

Spaceman Spiff said...

we alone are the billions of dollars of lost productivity in this country

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The game playing was simply outrageous.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

206.1 on the fly.

Isiah Thomas said...

206.5 on the fly.

Isiah Thomas said...

207.5 on the head

temwr said...

Sweet fucking catch!

That's all the Mets could have hoped for out of Perez.

And El Pad, the Mets fans are waving A LOT of those damn towells.

Isiah Thomas said...

that ump seemed a little too eager to ring up the mets in the 9th.
