Another Boring Thursday

Raindrops keep falling on my head

Another rainout. This has got to be some record for a postseason. Screw you Mother Nature. People have been talking about who this will help the most, and honestly, I don't care.

I don't care about the World Series.

Seems hard to say, but I know it's true.

I guess I'm passively rooting for the Tigers, but I just had this feeling before the Series started that the Cardinals would win. Way too many people were picking the Tigers. Like 80% of polls on espn.com.


Bledsoe no mo'

Dolphin safe Tuna names Romo starter. Honestly, who cares? Somewhere along the line the Cowboys named themselves "America's team". This falls along the lines of giving yourself a nickname, and is therefore unacceptable. I propose hate rains down upon Dallas and "Valley Ranch". I'm actually upset that I know where the 'Boys practice. I don't even know where my team practices. (I could drive there, but it doesn't have a name) Seriously though, do we need Ed Werder out there with hourly reports? I guess I can take some solace that they aren't talking about TO. Not much, but some.


Steriodman

I feel very slighted. I traded for Shawne Merriman in Madden. And then he comes out and does this? This is not good for my team morale. Bottom line, if you are getting tested for steriods, you damn well better make sure the supplements you are taking don't make the test be positive. He really needs to get more flak for this. Maybe a new nickname will do. We need to brainstorm.


Flipping crash

Weirdest news of the week for me. Montae Reagor flipped his SUV. Strangest thing was I was driving past there about 1:20. Glad I was speeding so I made it through there quicker. Coulda been in a crash with my freaking awesome car. Wouldn't want that thing to get smashed.


And, as always

Hi Bill.

I don't care about who Dallas starts at QB either and I certainly do not need hourly reports from Ed Werder. He is a tool.

The flipping SUV story never got the press it deserved. People only talked about how Booger didn't help the run D. Umm, he has been there a week and this Reagor guy, who apparently is a DL who gets some serious PT was not there. Give Booger a break you media fucktards.

I also care little about the WS. I do think it is rigoddamndiculous that they are still playing baseball in late October. They need to add more double headers into the season to shorten this damn thing up. They could call them Doubledays and make it a big promotion with that Abner guy. They could be like twice a month. Umm, quick math, 2 times a month from May through September would cut 10 days off this thing.

temwr said...

And it is a very boring thursday. I had to get into the office like an hour earlier than usual to call some guy and then the guy was not there. Things like this piss me off.

Eric said...

I must have missed a few days last week and now every post ends with "Hi Bill." Can someone explain that to me.

El Padrino said...

Simmons...
that cockbag read our blog then steals ideas from the comments and posts. so we at least say hi to him, maybe he'll catch on.

El Padrino said...

reads

temwr said...

It is because people think Bill Simmons reads the blog. I think they are gathering evidence and everything to take to the Warren Commission or something. The site meter does say someone from LA reads the blog, so add that to the mounting evidence. (which there is actually some evidence to suggest he really does read this)...anyway.....

El Padrino said...

Shawn Merriroid?
Shawn Mini-nuts
Shawn Masculine?
Steroid Shawn?
Shawn Merry-little testes?
Shawn Horse?

i give up, it's too early for me to think

Eric said...

I'm not sure if it does anymore but my IP address at work used to show up as LA because thats where the company headquarters is located. Lately it's been showing up as brooklyn, but if that sitemeter said AECOM, and was from LA that was me.

anonymous said...

the WWL is totally making the dallas story out to be something its not. let it go people.

It's ROMO TIME!

PANTHERS -5 HERE I COME!!!!

Cam said...

People in Dallas care way too much about the Cowboys. They should use their time for something more useful, like figuring out how to get people in their city to stop shooting each other.

Cam said...

Some guy on the local radio station thinks the Romo era is a good thing.

jugdish said...

I'm just guessing there is only a handful of people in LA with internet access too.

jugdish said...

If Dallas really thinks that Romo is the guy of the future, then they should have started him during the Texans game. If he is just a servicable backup, they should have never gone to him. If they really think they have a shot at the playoffs, they should have stuck with Bledsoe and worked on the O-line.

Eric said...

well temwr said someone from LA, not multiple people from LA

ebntx said...

cam, the romo era is a good thing. now the cowboys have a mobile quarterback that will hopefully get sacked only 4 times a game instead of 6.

Eric said...

As a Redskins fan, I'm very excited for the Romo era. Unfortunately thats about the only thing to be excited about if youre a Redskins fan.

jugdish said...

You can also be happy that Dan Snyder has a new friend in Tom Cruise!

Eric said...

True, if you have to route for a trainwreck you might as well have some crazy celebrities to make it even weirder.

jugdish said...

I don't understand why the Jason Campbell era doesn't start for the Skins...what are they thinking?? ARE they thinking?

That is a bigger debate there in my mind.

Eric said...

You know how old people are really set in their ways. And so are really religious southern people. Joe Gibbs is an old, religious, southern dude, theres no way hes benching his church buddy mark brunell.

Eric said...

Also I'm starting to wonder if they see something they don't really like in Campbell, because they're reluctant to even call him the back up. He must be has to be mildly retarded or something. That being said its not like things can get much worse right now so you might as well throw him out there.

ebntx said...


>NBA doesn’t like guns

anonymous said...

i havent read the story yet, but i gotta say that the best headline ever has to be.. (aol.com)

"Elmo used to smuggle Meth".

jugdish said...

Why read the story and spoil it for yourself?

whocares said...

Eric, I dont doubt the Campbell thing one bit. As an Auburn fan we suffered through three years of him and in a few games along the way, we wondering if he even had a pulse. Deer in headlights may be too kind for him. But in his senior year with a new OC, he looked like an All-American. He parlayed that one year (with two top 5 RB's mind you) into a first round draft pick.

I always asked myself, did the Skins watch any film on this guy from anything other than his senior year?

Marvin said...

All this reference to Sports Guy - isn't this blog technically the grandsons of Sports Guy? So LOV is calling out their own grandfather...

Pretty cool, Beavis.

anonymous said...

grandpa's a drunk.

Martin VanNostrand said...

When family steals from you one has to call it what it is. Maybe it's due to drugs, being old, mental disability or as El P put it, being a cockbag, but you call it what it is. We all thought gramps was great but after his last visit a bottle of scotch and $50 ended up missing.

El Padrino said...

well put Martin

whocares said...

Is there direct evidence that BS has used anything here? I mean, this site generally discusses every major (and not so major) sports topic in any given week, so anything he writes about would probably fall under the category of "already talked about on LOV".

If you're gonna call out grampa you better be able to back it up.

THE CHAMP. said...

how do you guys know my grandpa?

jugdish said...

That's like going shopping with your alcholoic grandpa and there is an awesome sale on Bud Lite...so you both buy some, then you get mad at him for trying to be like you. At the same time, the sale on Bud Lite is so good, everyone else in the store is trying to stock up as well.

THE CHAMP. said...

Hurray it's race weekend in ATL!

It's like PWT Homecoming.

Isiah Thomas said...

We're pretty much keeping SG in business.

Hi Bill.

Isiah Thomas said...

jfreak good call on the WS. I've watched maybe a half inning.

Once the Yankees were eliminated I didn't have anyone to hate.

The Rev said...

I'm gonna state my opinion for the record... I really don't think Simmons reads us.

But I do think it's funny when he refers to something we referred to days before. And I think it's a good running joke to say Hi Bill.

However, I'm sure he's heard of us before. I'm sure DB has complained to him about what we are doing.

how do you still not wear a seatbelt? Thats as dumb as Roethlisberger riding the fastest street bike in the world without a helmet.

Isiah Thomas said...

re: Jason Campbell.

I read today he's taking all the first team snaps in place of an ailing Brunell.

eric - good to have another Skins fan here.

jugdish said...

Thanks Rev...

I'll go further...I'll bet Simmons doesn't even communicate with db anymore...nor has he heard of this site.

The Rev said...

I've watched some of the WS. Not a lot, but some.

It's hard to give up everyday life to invest time to watch a series that you have no real emotional attachment to, especially on the East Coast where games end so late during the week. And I also have a job on weekends that keeps me from watching sports on Saturday nights most of the time.

I'm sure I'll watch if it goes to game 7 though on Sunday.

Isiah Thomas said...

re: Campbell...

He looked good his senior year with all that talent around him. You'd think Portis, Moss, Randle El, Lloyd, Cooley, etc would be better than his Auburn talent so he should do well. If he's not dumber than a box of rocks, which might be possible.

The Rev said...

Whether SG and DB speak anymore... who knows.

But I'm sure if they did, DB has complained about us. Because he seems like the type who would complain about us.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm almost positive LOV is the reason behind everything in the world.

For example...

Just a few short days ago we were talking about the Rev's love for young boys. Man on man love. Gay love. Then yesterday, New Jersey passes a gay marriage law.

Hard evidence of LOV's impact not in the sports world but real world.

It's truly amazing.

The Rev said...

To the three suicide players left...

I'm having problems posting the page right now. Blogger.com wants to suck today.

If you want to e-mail me picks, I'm at mybigfatf_kinhead@yahoo.com

The Rev said...

Now that's silly...

I don't even live in NJ.

And I really do hate the cock.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I bet Billy Boy checks out once in a while. I'm sure he doesn't 'steal' anything from here. I agree with Rev, It's a fantastic running joke.

Top Ten Reason's Your A Cheater

10. Tested positive for uranium
9. Always asking fans for clean urine
8. After each win, receives congratulatory phone call from BALCO co-founder Victor Conte
7. Name on back of his uniform is "Bonds"
6. You can find him in the clubhouse corking himself
5. Distracts opponents by throwing out the frozen head of Ted Williams
4. Somehow got three RBIs during the seventh-inning stretch
3. You haven't seen someone with that much Vaseline on them since the last Paris Hilton video
2. Pete Rose called him a disgrace to the game
1. His nickname is "Needle Ass"
-- The Late Show with David Letterman

El Padrino said...

And for the record, here are the stats for Rogers:

His past postseasons:

20 1/3 IP, 32 H, 20 R, 18 ER,
16 BB, 15 K

This postseason:

24 IP, 9 H, 0 R, 0 ER,
9 BB, 19 K

The Rev said...

"Somehow got three RBIs during the seventh-inning stretch"

That was the best line.

Spaceman Spiff said...

as a skins fan, i am not excited about the romo era, with bledsoe we know what we're getting, with romo who knows what'll happen.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Agreed Zeke, everything is spawned from LOV. To prove it, I say it will be warm and sunny in San Deigo today. Now someone go and check the weather channel.

It's a hilarious running joke to think Sports Gramps steals material from here. When it coincidentally matches up it becomes that much funnier. It could happen though, that guy did steal the Da Vinci Code idea from our comments.
Hi Bill!

whocares said...

Everyone's favorite pastime. Notre Dame bashing:

Martin VanNostrand said...

Or San Diego even, check the weather there.

anonymous said...

so the bottom line is here that someone didnt get the running joke and took it seriously?


and u think simmons would make time to talk to a former intern with whom he probably only had email contact with in the first place?

Spaceman Spiff said...

requesting insider article

Spaceman Spiff said...

Drew Bledsoe's Blog

Beth82678 said...

I have to say, I think I may be the only LOV regular who thinks BS is just as fun to read as he always has been. Like someone said about Bledsoe, you know what you're getting with BS. (I mean if you don't like countless Boston references, "look how cool me and my friends are" anecdotes and the occasional whine, then why are you still reading?)

See, I just assumed the entire time that the "hi bill" comments were just a running gag, I never thought anyone was serious about that.

And Zeke, your "gay marriage law comes from LOV" comment was a "new classic". :-)

anonymous said...

wtf does Stark have to say.. somebody hook that up..

anonymous said...

i guess me and rev could officially help the homosex get married...

hmm... more truly groundbreaking days for LOV.

The Rev said...

Iam...

if there's money in marrying gay people, I'm in.

I mean, they have to pay for a wedding reception too, right?

You officiate the ceremony, I'll DJ it.

Isiah Thomas said...

it must be a super boring series if they're digging up stories about "radar-gate" or "zumaya-gate". Manufactured news. WTF.

Forgot who said it but enough with the "-gates".

The Rev said...

I think Simmons can still bring good articles. I still read everytime.

But lately, it's been hot and cold with him. It's just like any writer. None of them are 100% anymore.

Bill used to bring 95-96 MPH fastballs. Now he throws about 89, and nibbles the corners. He's still effective, but he's not what he once was.

Kinda like Pedro.

Beth82678 said...

You know Rev, I think I have to agree with you. BS has maybe lost a step but is still is good read normally. To me it's kinda like Survivor is this season - not as good as it used to be but still better than most shows on TV.

Beth82678 said...

And I have to say this at least once:

Hi Bill.

The Rev said...

He is Pedro Martinez.

I still want to see him pitch, but I know I'm not getting the guy that pitched in 99 and 2000.

I still want to see Simmons write, but I know I'm not getting the original Sports Guy.

Those are the kind of articles you get when there is nothing else to report...damn rain delay!

Jammin' on the one.

Thanks Temwr.

Blogger just doesn't want to let me post today.

The Rev said...

Both Temwr and Eric taking Pittsburgh this week.

We shall see which way Bryan goes.

temwr said...

Careful with the LOV makes the world go round...it won't be long until LOV is being blamed for Amish School Shootings and the war in Iraq.

Beth82678 said...

By the way, here's a great test to see if BS or anyone else from WWL actually reads this blog - if they do they'll be coming after Martin now for copyright infringement for reposting that insider article. :-)

Martin VanNostrand said...

I considered that and figured I could delete it in 15 or so. I did give them credit at the top. Maybe I should have written re-published without permission on there as well.

temwr said...

I just looked at a picture on cnn.com of this fence we are apparently going to build between us and Mexico...I think it is 5 feet high, max.

How is this going to keep anyone but midgets out?

Actually they might be able to go under it...

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

That's perfect Beth. Everyday we'll copy an article word for word from Page 2, time will tell.

And did ya'll see that Crafty Lefty finally stoped pouting and put his blog back up?

temwr said...

What is Crafty Lefty?

The Rev said...

Now there's a "Zumaya-gate"? Really, how many "gates" can we come up with?

Molina-gate... why does Yadier Molina look like a girl?

McCarver-gate... how does such an annoying announcer keep getting work?

The Rev said...

If you're talking about the site for online trading, that wouldn't be Crafty's.

When someone gives up a blogspot domain name, someone usually bogarts it afterwards to put up their crappy product. They're hoping that someone who used to go to the site will stumble upon it.

It happened to my old blogsite. Now, it has chinese writing all over it.

jugdish said...

Bengals receiver Chad Johnson said that if Falcons cornerback DeAngelo Hall -- "DeAngelo Fall," according to Johnson -- gets the best of him and Atlanta wins Sunday's game in Cincinnati, he will shave off his blond Mohawk.
-- Atlanta Journal-Constitution


So??

The Rev said...

Shanoff-gate... what really happened between him and the WWL?

Spaceman Spiff said...

crafty is up and running, he put a hyphen in his blog name

Martin VanNostrand said...

I think the Titans are taking that same approach. Pick up other peoples leftovers and hope you get lucky.

temwr said...

DeAngelo Fall? I wonder how long it took CJ to come up with that. I hope about 1 minute, max, but I suspect a tad longer.

temwr said...

I still don't know what this crafty lefty thing is, but I decided I don't care.

Apathy-gate.

The Rev said...

I think I like the online trading site better.

Martin VanNostrand said...

He probably went down the alphabet.

Hall...hmmmm

A-all,no,B-all,maybe,C-all,is that a word?, D-all, he is pretty, E-all, no, F-all...Yes! that's it Deangelo Fall now where's the press conference.

So the guy who scouted Albert Pujols and signed him is now stocking groceries in a Wal-Mart in Arkansas.

Something seem wrong about that?

WTF?

The Rev said...

try that link again

Isiah Thomas said...

"I call it March Madness," said Huff, who is an analyst on Redskins broadcasts. "Every March they sign a lot of free agents, rather than focusing on the draft. Last year, they drafted the quarterback [Jason Campbell] with the first-round pick, and he hasn't played yet. This year, they drafted [linebacker] Rocky McIntosh [in the second round] and they haven't put him in the game yet.

"It's interesting, the old family-owned teams, the Giants and Steelers, don't always go for the flashy free agents and I think it helps them. The Colts have gone that way, lately. It's tough to have continuity when you're always changing the players."


Its bad when the 103 yr old announcer is the voice of reason.

JFreak said...

I'm a little upset no one has commented on my sweet ride.

I was kind of hoping that would lead to people posting their own cars.

The Rev said...

Freak...

It's a KIA. That ain't too exciting.

Los said...

Gotta say, I LOVED that Gallo article today ... I hope Fred Flintstone (AKA Charlie Weiss) gets a chance to read it.

The Rev said...

Then again, I still drive a 96 Dodge Intrepid that needs a paint job.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

If I can come up with a way to do it, I'll post my bucket. It's pimalicious.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Sorry Freak, that is a sweet ride. Does that come with rear defrost? I don't have picture but I drive a 97 Rodeo...with the seats layed back...and no dash lights. I was excited it passed the emissions test yesterday.

JFreak said...

Apparently, I didn't note my own sarcasm. My car sucks. And I want to know if everyone else has a sucky car as well.

Isiah Thomas said...

jfreak your pic gets blocked here at work. I'll reserve comment till I see it.

My 98 Civic EX is pretty dope itself. The drivers side window recently broke so it rolls up a little funny and not all the way to the top so it makes a sweet whistling sound when you get it on the highway. And there is a nice foot and a half crack in the windshield. And I haven't washed it in a year. But it is sweet.

El Padrino said...

03 Civic
what up son!

jugdish said...

I DRIVE A DODGE STRATUS!!

The Rev said...

You're a lucky man Freak.

My first car at age 18 was a 74 Dodge Dart.

Isiah Thomas said...

my dash lights work but not the lights for the a/c. Also, the radio was stolen 5 years ago and I never got it replaced. yeah I'm rocking a clock radio for tunes. But my car is sweet - runs like a champ. And I just re-upped the California registration bc surprisingly it was way cheaper to do that rather than register it AZ. And I still have my old VA license.

anonymous said...

did anyone see Tiki calling out the ESPN football guys?

specifically this quote (stolen here and reprinted without permission, cause its the freakin internet man!)..

"...I will call them idiots, because they have neither spoken to me, nor any one of my teammates or any of my coaches," Barber said. "Yet all they do is criticize me for being a distraction with this retirement thing."

Barber was specifically upset at three of his critics: the New York Daily News' Gary Myers, who wrote that Barber had "created a season-long distraction" the Giants "don't need"; and ESPN's Tom Jackson, who said the decision "has distracted the team from the task at hand," and Michael Irvin.

..That includes Tom Jackson on ESPN. That includes the ultimate character guy, facetiously speaking of course, Michael Irvin. Please get a clue on how to be a journalist."

Isiah Thomas said...

and the front end is barely hanging on. The screws that hold it in place seemed to have come loose or off. If I pull up too far in a parking spot with the concrete thing it hooks over it and I risk pulling the front bumper clean off.

But seriously, my car is sweet.

Spaceman Spiff said...

my 99 camry is bangin', 4 out of 5 windows tinted because some mexicans broken into my car and i didnt get the new window done. the brown boys didnt get my stereo tho, got a detachable face on that mu'fucka. sadly, they did escape with my ashtray full of change. hope the government builds that 5 foot high wall FAST

Isiah Thomas said...

Tiki bringing some heat. I would pay more attention to him if he wasn't gay.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Zeke just pulled off the DMV triple crown. License, registration and residence all in different states. We have musch to learn.

Isiah Thomas said...

surprisingly I like Mike Irvin on Sunday countdown, he works.

But has anyone else noticed how touchy feely he is? He'll start laughing then he'll try and hold someone's hand. And not just a touch-n-go. Its a legit hand or wrist hold for at least 5-10 seconds. Watch on Sunday if you've never noticed.

Isiah Thomas said...

*bowing*

The Rev said...

Had my 96 Intrepid stolen in 2004. I lost it for 26 days. Got it back later with a dent in it. Lost all my DJ music and equipment that I had left that night in the trunk.

But it still runs two years later.

JFreak said...

My first car was a '91 Ford Taurus.

Then the transmission crapped out.

That was a good car.

El Padrino said...

irvin is a fool

and good call zeke

one day TJ is going to yank his arm off and eat it.

tiki slayed those fools

The Rev said...

91 Ford Taurus...

I had the same car.

And the same thing happened to me.

Ford Taurus' suck ass!

Isiah Thomas said...

oh yeah and when they took the stereo they busted through the a/c vents so one vent is completely gone and the other has no inbetween vents.

I need to get some pics of this car.

It still gets 30+ MPG highway.

I took it in to get major service a year and a half ago. The guy flushed the radiator, he wanted to know if I had filled it with a special coolant, he said he'd never seen coolant that color before.

Martin VanNostrand said...

What the F is up with my typing today? musch?

I'm still rocking the walkman cd player with the cassette adapter. All factory on my system. I did install air horns though as the Japanese horn was not getting it done.

Isiah Thomas said...

before the service the car would shake and shimmy once it got above 65 bc the rotors or brakes were fucked up.

Isiah Thomas said...

between irvin's grabbing and Jaw's glasses.....such a masculine show is pretty gay.

Isiah Thomas said...

the walkman cd adapter was classic. I remember having one with my parents old ride. With the god damn wire sticking out when the cassette was in. Fucking classic.

jugdish said...

You can still use those with iPods you know :)

speaking of how the "gates" need to be stopped...

the local news guys were down in St Lou yesterday. local fans have made shirts about Rogers and his "cheating", and they are STILL not letting it die.

i dont think this has been brought up before... but Cards fans need to STFU, and heres why..

your team had one of the biggest cheaters there was.. McGwire!

STFU!

Stiggy said...

I'm a little late, but my first car was an '88 Chevy Cavalier station wagon, which was a piece of shit since it had to be rebuilt after someone slammed into it while it was parked on the street. I was so cool driving that car to HS.

I love my car now, though. A '98 Civic EX. I took the driver's side mirror off pulling into the garage, had it replaced, only to have my mother back out of her garage into my car and almost take it off. There's a nice paint chip in it and it's kind of loose.

El Padrino said...

03' Civic- for reelz

78' Celica- real james bond like
had secret compartments and shit
rocked the cassete cd/walkman as well

93' saturn- complete peice of garbage

92' accord- best care i ever owned

88' chevy s-10, cool truck

87' oldsmobile custom cruiser station wagon, i dubbed it the ass-bagger cuz when you put the middle seats down, it was like a hotel room and i baggged alot of ass in that. tru story.

whocares said...

Loooootta Civic drivers on here.

My first whip was an 89 Blazer. Rocked that thing until about a year ago. For some reason, no one else on the planet could start that car but me. People would get in and try and drive it and it just wouldnt crank. Worked every time for me. Well, 60% of the time all the time.

That was the big first purchase out of college was a new rig.

temwr said...

umm 1982 RX-7 was my first car. I bought it in 1995 for 1,245 dollars. My dad still has that car sitting in the back yard under a tarp, with flat tires.

Then I went 1987 Ford Taurus around 1999. Until, you guessed it, the transmission went to shit.

Then I bought a 1996 Eclipse. Maybe it was a 1997. I had that car until 2002 (when it's turbo inexplicably burned out) then I got a Hyundai Elantra.

So now I cruise around town in my Elantra. Runs like a champ, knock on wood, great gas mileage. Looks OK enough, it would give that Kia a run for its money.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

1st car: '91 Cavalier

2nd: 96 Ford Contour, from 00- this sept. I hated that fucking car so much.

Now- 1986 Mercury Cougar. <82,000 miles. Great body and interior. It's the shit for real.

The Rev said...

1st - 74 Dodge Dart
2nd - 78 Chevy Malibu Classic
3rd - 79 Plymouth Volare
4th - 91 Ford Taurus
5th - 95 Dodge Neon
6th - 89 Honda Civic (emergency car after the Neon got totaled)
Now - 96 dodge Intrepid.

One of these days, I'll get into the 2000 models.

Meiz - the ocho six cougar is the ish.

That cassette adapter works on my mini disc player as well.

1st - 1980 Cutlass Supreme the 2 door with a half vinyl top. This joint had the radio with the orange line you panned left to right through the stations. Had it in HS and did some work to make it a nice ghetto sled.
2nd - 1993 Cutless Supreme. This car was tight too. Tranny dropped at 120K
3rd and current 97 Rodeo. Tranny dropped this year 140K and was like 2G to fix but that's cheaper than a new ride.

temwr said...

Baseball should not be played in late october. This grinds my gears (said in my best Peter Griffin voice).

The Rev said...

I've put 3k in my car this year with a rebuilt tranny, new radiator, and new water pump.

I gotta get two more years out of it just to justify the cost.

El Padrino said...

ebtnx is lampin'

temwr said...

2 more years out of my Elantra then I might get a nice new car.

Of course I'll probably decide to get another OK car. Why get a nice one when I am just going to run it into the ground.

ToddPacker said...

1st car: '78 datsun 510...POS with a hole in the muffler...very loud

Current: '04 F-150, crew cab lots of room but eats the crap out of gas


Rev

'79 plymouth volare niiice, I had a '79 dodge aspen...same car I think

Spaceman Spiff said...

used to care about having a nice car, but the camry never causes trouble, always got my back

The Rev said...

The Volare was my most embarassing time in a vehicle.

I blasted out the grill on it, and had to replace it with chicken wire just to get it to pass inspection.

I was poor then.

The Rev said...

Why buy a new car anymore?

All new cars go down at least 2 grand in value the minute you drive it off the lot.

ebntx said...

tp...
the 78 datsun, i dont think its the hole in the muffler

my parents had one when i was a kid and that pos was loud as hell. you could hear the acceleration in the speakers, funny as hell. almost like a video game.

Spaceman Spiff said...

true that, i have wisened up, rather have a decent house with a huge TV and all the cable fixings, thats my goal now

The Rev said...

Mine too, Spiff.

THE CHAMP. said...

Rev,

I'll take the GIANTS.

Hopefully Oakland has one more upset in them.

Spaceman Spiff said...

oakland has 5th ranked total defense, they COULD upset anyone on a given week

The Rev said...

It's settled.

Temwr and Eric both take Pittsburgh, and Bryan takes the Giants.

Good luck guys!

THE CHAMP. said...

hopefully rothelberughsefwsadf dies this week.

ToddPacker said...

ebntx

I always blamed all the noise on a hole in the muffler, but i guess they were all loud.

You're right about the engine noise coming through the speakers (in my case one speaker), it was exactly like the sound on an old Atari game (nightrider, i think)

Eric said...

My first and only car: '98 Altima. I have nothing to add to that.

Spaceman Spiff said...

its a lock roethlisberger will not finish the game, too bad romanowski isnt still playing

Eric said...

I like my chances just as much with charlie batch against oakland. As I matter of fact, I'd be pretty confident with myself playing qb against oakland.

Los said...

IAM - couldn't agree more with your comment about the Cardinals. I'm surprised nobody has contacte Barry Bonds to see what he thinks about the alleged cheating.

whocares said...

damn rev,

Six cars? Arent you only in your early thirties? Thems a lot of cars for such a young dude. Do cars weep at the sight of you?

The Rev said...

"I'd be pretty confident with myself playing qb against oakland."

Funny, I hear that's exactly what Matt Leinart had to say last week.

Spaceman Spiff said...

whitlock truths

i like his stuff on aolsports better for some reason

The Rev said...

"Do cars weep at the sight of you?"

Yes they do.

I've had a bad run with cars in my life. The best one I ever had I totaled on a guardrail. The next best one I ever had got stolen.

I'm afriad to get a new car.

JFreak said...

Rev, I'm still quite shocked that you got your car back after 27 days.

That's a long time.

Had you given up all hope?

The Rev said...

In fact, I had given up hope.

I had bought an old Jeep just to have a car at that time.

After I got the Intrepid back, I had to sell the Jeep... and wound up selling it for a $1000 less than what I paid. Long story as to why.

That cost me a shitload of money.

El Padrino said...

good truths from whitlock

temwr said...

Big TV, nice house, sweet house fixins is where it is at.

Words to live by:

Buy the cheapest car you can live with and the most expensive house you can afford.

Although I think it is OK to leave some money on the table when buying that house, just so you can still get that big TV and what not.

Stiggy said...

I'm laughing outloud right now about all the car talk. It brings back memories of the car I had in between the wagon and my current ride.

'91 Plymouth Sundance. It had a sunroof installed after purchase (not my choice, the car wasn't mine to begin with). That meant I got to drive a car with a leaky roof. It got so bad that while in college I actually taped Saran Wrap to the inside roof. When it rained, I could pull back a corner of it and push the water out of the driver's side window.

I got rid of it as soon as I got my first job out of college.

anonymous said...

seriously, can they not give whitlock a freaking aolsports.com email address?

for fucks sake with the Ball State email.. judas!

El Padrino said...

women like new cars

i hate women

The Rev said...

Remember...

You have a better chance of selling the house for more than you paid for it.

You can never sell a car for more than what you paid for it.

anonymous said...

thats why the big money is in stealing cars.

temwr said...

Whitlock probably writes it in his contract to keep the Ballstate email.

That must be why Shanoff got fired. He wanted to keep his East Central State Community College For the Disabled email address and they made him use a page 2 one.

temwr said...

"thats why the big money is in stealing cars."

Also it is very hard to steal a house. Except in Kansas, because they are on wheels and mobile.

whocares said...

KC's traveling secretary had to be fired after that weekend trip.

30 dudes laying pipe all night to 280 women? No problem, they'll be ready for a football game the next day...

El Padrino said...

betcha even Herm Edwards took part

"You fuck to BUST A NUT!"

Martin VanNostrand said...

I want your motherfuggin' Daytons and your motherfuggin' stereo. And I'll take a double burger with cheese.

Spaceman Spiff said...

if joe gibbs wasnt joe gibbs, hed be fired soon

temwr said...

Soon?? Maybe already.

And Snyder would have forced him to be playing the soup guy.

Isiah Thomas said...

Tuna and Gibbs both have records right below or at .500 since they came back.

Isiah Thomas said...

just started whilock...

didn't Marvin Lewis turn around the Bengals in 3 years? Denny Green is done here.

Although some reports say the Cards will make Denny coach next year as a lame duck coach just to get out of paying two coaches.

The Rev said...

If you get a chance to hear it, the Baba Booey Roast on Howard Stern's Sirius show is hilarious today. I'm hearing it now.

It's still free on the internet until midnight.

Isiah Thomas said...

Joe Gibbs and the 2-5 Washington Redskins carry that distinction, and there are no challengers. Gibbs was given total control in Washington and an unlimited budget. He has the highest-paid coaching staff in professional sports.

Gibbs also took his team within a game of the NFC championship numnuts. And the Cards have had double digit loses forever.

whocares said...

Wow. Someone's a little sensitive about the Skins...

Spaceman Spiff said...

brunell cartoon

whocares said...

Zeke,

That 24 in golf is untouchable. Looking at your scorecard I dont see how you made some of those holes in one. Some records are just not to be broken I guess...

Isiah Thomas said...

not really, wondering why Gibbs isn't on the hotseat but Denny Green is, is just dumb. I wonder if he tried to play the subliminal race card.

Spaceman Spiff said...

2 years old but realates to this year also

Isiah Thomas said...

I left 2 strokes out there for sure, maybe 3. It is my mission to shoot a 21.

anonymous said...

zeke will show that golf game no mercy.. just how he does when there's free agent swingmen to be signed.

go for the kill baby!

El Padrino said...

zeke i will tell my grandchildren about your amazing xcel golf game one day, live on brother!

anonymous said...

i will preach about zeke one day, when i discuss "jealousy" or "spite" with my congregation.

ToddPacker said...

Rev

The roast was great.
Artie just killed Sal and Sal's kids.

I've got sirius, so I listen all the time

ToddPacker said...

Zeke,

You’re a mad man with that golf game.

By the way there is a ”Chester Cheetah" mini-golf game out there. It's the same design as the excel one, just different holes. Thought I would throw it out there for your next challenge.

temwr said...

Chester Cheetah is one kool kat.
