Thursday Crickets…..

Alright I don’t got much. The day’s already started, we just busted 400’s cherry on the other thread, let me find some left overs, throw ‘em in a pot and call it a new post.

I’ve John Kerry’d on this topic. I used to think Wednesday was the least worthwhile day of the week, but I think its now Thursday.

Monday’s suck but you at least you can reminisce about a good weekend or hate yourself for a bad weekend. In the fall you have MNF to look fwd to. Tuesday isn’t much better but you’re getting the ball rolling, you think hey after today its Wednesday then the week will be half over. Wednesday shows up and its “hump day”. Just get through the day and you’re almost home free. This is where I would hate on Wednesday. You’re still 2 full days from the weekend. Fuck Wednesday. *Lee Corso Mask* NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND.

Thursday – what good is it really? Wednesday at least gets you over the mental barrier of surviving another sucky work week. But Thursday. Ftttt. F U. You’re not Wednesday nor Friday. You get your hopes up for the weekend but realize you got to get through it first. It leaves you unfulfilled, kind of like a public school education.

Friday – yeah I can dig it. You can spend the first half of the day just wanting to get to lunch, then the last half pretending to be busy.

So Thursday – bring something more to the table please.

What else do I got – Halloween Costume ideas (as previously mentioned in today’s comments). I like my A-Rod and/or Dan Shanoff ideas. Croc Hunter would be my sadistic suggestion. Either that or throw on a diaper and get a pacifier and say you’re Tommy Tubberville.

Doesn’t “The Departed” come out tomorrow? I’ll prob wait at least one weekend to go see it. Opening weekends suck. You have to get to the theater way too early and some asshole always talks/laughs too loud or gives you a running commentary which makes you miss a quarter of the movie. And some fucktard who doesn’t want to admit they’re not 20 anymore always brings a baby which ends up crying then they try to pacify it but it won’t shut up then 5 minutes later they finally get the idea to take it outside. WTF is up with that?

That’s all I got. And of course, fuck the Yankees.

so are we going to implement a "don't give Tigers/Yanks update" law for iam today?

The Rev said...

Oh hell no! I want to see him snap!

The Rev said...

All I will say is that so far, Derek Jeter has made a throwing error, and popped up on a bunt attempt to the catcher.

temwr said...

I hate crying babies in restaurants and movie theatres.

Umm, and I guess anywhere I am.

Spaceman Spiff said...

fuck babies in theaters, worst situation

Isiah Thomas said...

ESPN's Gamecast is too big for my screen. Half the info is chopped off. I'm too lazy to change my comp settings.

The Rev said...

I'm having the "whether or not to have kids" discussion. It comes up between me and her occasonally.

She wants a kid eventually, a few years from now. I like kids and am not against the idea, but I am completely on the fence about it.

Things like having the kid cry in a movie theater would definitely talk me out of it.

The Rev said...

Bases loaded for A-Fraud

Spaceman Spiff said...

verlander shitty, but a-rod is up, perfect arod choke situation, loaded for him

Isiah Thomas said...

I parlayed the Yanks moneyline and over 9.5 last night. Once the game was rained out it cancelled the bet. I didn't place it again for today.

anonymous said...

fuck you all

im done

Spaceman Spiff said...

0-1, 99 on the radar gun

Spaceman Spiff said...

0-2 foul tip, 100 on the gun

anonymous said...

and crying babies should be killed.

Isiah Thomas said...

I can't say I like kids per se, but if it was my kid I could prob deal with it.

Spaceman Spiff said...

got him looking on breaking ball, inning over, haha arod

The Rev said...

Alright, I'll stop Iam. Just teasing.

Isiah Thomas said...

LOL. I can't wait to see that replay.

Spaceman Spiff said...

3 pitches, classic fuck up at bat

Isiah Thomas said...

old purple lips just can't get it done.

JFreak said...

I'll be the 4th starter, just didn't know I had that spot in the rotation. Thought of myself more as a spot starter.

Next Thursday you'll all wake up to glorious musings of me.

The Rev said...

But my question now is...

when a batter looks at a called third strike with the bases loaded to end an inning, should we call it "He just pulled an A-Rod", or "He just pulled a Pat Burrell"?

JFreak said...

Less people know who Pat Burrell is. Let's blame A-Rod.

anonymous said...

inning over? fuck me.. i couldnt turn away from that sitch..

i thought Verlander mightve actually benefitted from the delay, but maybe not...

i hate everyone that is in view of a tv though. really, i spite thee.

temwr said...

I always have a hell of a time figuring out a Halloween costume.

The fiancee wants me to go as Stewie from Family Guy, but I told her that idea is about 2 years too old. Two years ago, yeah, not today though.

I want to go as Kirk Herbstreit because the Columbus chicks all adore him, but the whole "I have a fiancee" thing is a game killer...Well for me, maybe thejaywhite could pull it off.

Speaking of tjw, did he and MOV run off together?

Ninja is always an easy costume, but you won't score many points or win any prizes with it.

Girls can go as Lindsey Lohan. They just need to be drunk and have a wrist cast. And be late for everything.

Going as Tom Cruise isn't a bad idea. You can act crazy, say you love everything, jump on couches and rip on psychology.

Isiah Thomas said...

how did he look coming off the field...did he have that "yeah I just crapped the bed again in a clutch situation but I'm alright, I'm cool" face or was he distraught? I MUST KNOW.

The Rev said...

I have no TV. But I may hit up a sports bar at lunch.

Isiah Thomas said...

Iam just can't quit us.

JFreak said...

I'll put this up again, because only 6 people have joined.

Draft: Sat August 28th 9:30 PM ET

Spaceman Spiff said...

no idea, im giving the radio play by play, i assume hes trying to play it cool, it was only the 1st inning

anonymous said...

i gotta sever ties now.. i had this page and the msn sports update going.. i gotta stop after that last inning though.. im cutting myself off.

enough!!

Isiah Thomas said...

did he get booed mercilessly?

Before his first at bat in game 1 he got the whole "we're only cheering and clapping for you so you don't sabotage our playoff run but we really do hate you" ovation.

JFreak said...

Am I the only one watching this on tv?

Spaceman Spiff said...

1-0 tigers, monroe doubled then singhled in by thames

temwr said...

Going as K-Fed would be easy too.

Dirty jeans - check

Wife beater - check

Don't wash hair - check

Don't shave - check

All set

JFreak said...

Oh, and the draft is October 28th, not August.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I like the draft time.

Spaceman Spiff said...

hope i can make the drafty, auto pick in bball is a disaster

Spaceman Spiff said...

inning over still 1-0 tigs

JFreak said...

He did not swing on that.

Stupid first base umpire.

The Rev said...

This settles it...

In our pitching staff, much like the Braves' glory days, Zeke gets to be Tom Glavine, Iam is our Greg Maddux, I am John Smoltz, Jfreak gets the Steve Avery slot, and we close with ElPadrino, AKA Mark Wohlers/Greg McMichael/Mike Stanton/Kerry Ligtenberg/John Rocker.

I hate the Braves, but it's the best comparison I could make.

Spaceman Spiff said...

leadoff single by godzilla

El Padrino said...

back from lunch
mcdonalds has the monopoly game again, i will eat that everyday until i win free food or 1 million dollars, whichever comes first

the real ny team plays tonight

The Rev said...

ElP...

Does a free small soda count as free food? We need a ruling on that.

JFreak said...

Can you chew a coke?

No, therefore, not free food.

Milkshake, yes.

The Rev said...

Mound of Venus gets to be Kevin Millwood.

Because Millwood also disappeared.

The Rev said...

But free sodas are often given out for the game.

I would go to McD's today for Monopoly, but I am trying to lose weight again. I have to lose the weight I gained over the summer.

El Padrino said...

robinson cano hits ninth

he was third in the league in hitting .342

ToddPacker said...

El P

Mc D every day. Yikes! I hope your cube has a built in crapper.

JFreak said...

Yankees suck.

The Rev said...

Or a built in EKG monitor.

El Padrino said...

soda -no
milkshake -yes
apple pie -definetely

JFreak said...

Verlander just hit 101.

So what if the Yanks still had Alfonso Soriano, and not a-Rod?

ToddPacker said...

Pie crust - food
Hot molten apple filling - Evil liquid

temwr said...

Am I crazy for ordering a Bruce Gradkowski Tampa Bay jersey?

I'm a big Bucs fan, but the only jersey I have is a Trent Dilfer one.

El Padrino said...

TEM what's wrong with Cadillac or Brooks...Gradowski = not cool

JFreak said...

Yes, you are crazy.

El Padrino said...

verlander throws hard

i am king of the understatements

JFreak said...

V's thrown 44 pitches through 2 innings.

Not good.

ToddPacker said...

TEM

Gradkowski jerseys are flying off the shelves here in Tampa...JK

It takes a strong man to still sport the orange popsicle dilfer jersey

I think the Bucs are going to pick up a W this weekend

whocares said...

Has anyone anywhere ever gotten all three of the necessry tiles to win a prize?

I think it's a McScamjob.

Isiah Thomas said...

def a McScam.

McRape.
McAssfuck.
McTossedSaladwithSyruporJelly.

whocares said...

Has anyone anywhere ever gotten all three same colored Monopoly tiles to win the prize?

I think it's a McScamjob.

The Rev said...

I'm on the side of "it takes a real man to wear a past jersey".

If I were in Tampa, I would totally rock out the orange Dilfer. Just because I have the stones to do it.

I don't believe that wearing a new jersey is that important. I think your willingness to wear a jersey from an obscure player of the past marks you as a real fan who has been with the team through thick and thin, not as a guy who jumps on the bandwagon with the newest free agent.

Tomorrow, I think I'l wear my Keith Van Horn Sixers jersey. And I hate Keith Van Horn. But that sumbitch was cheap.

whocares said...

I swear I wont ask again...

ToddPacker said...

You left out

McSanchez

temwr said...

All the casual fans have a brooks, barber, or cadillac jersey...or simms from last winter.

Only a real fan would walk around sporting his Gradkowski jersey.

And the Dilfer one isn't orange..sadly. I don't own an original orange jersey, or one of the throwbacks. The only throwbacks I see are Alstott or Selmon. I want a Wilder or House throwback.

temwr said...

I have never won anything from the McMonopoly sham.

temwr said...

If the Dilfer jersey was an orange one I would definitely still be wearing it.

El Padrino said...

you should splurge on the orange Spurrier, god that was an awful team....

i rock old jersey's all the time
hell i still wear my old faded dave brown jersey

El Padrino said...

i've won free food, but never any real prizes like hummers, jet ski's, cash or hoe's.

The Rev said...

Old jerseys I will never give up...

Phillies - Jim Thome
Flyers - John LeClair
Eagles - Hugh Douglas
Sixers - Dikembe Mutombo

The Rev said...

McHoe's

whocares said...

If you gotta go throwback then Tem has to go with the Testaverde #14...

El Padrino said...

shef just cooked up a double play

yay!!!!!!!!!

yes im from ny
i hate the yanks just as much as the next man

ToddPacker said...

I always think of Thome as an Indian...He was in philly for what seems like a cup of coffee

ToddPacker said...

Are they still showing those fat pigs in the stands with their chef hats?

temwr said...

I never like Vinnie T.

I'd go with a #8 Young over the Vinnie T.

El Padrino said...

yes...chef hats

this just in, i'm going to the met game tonight!!!!!!!!

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

guy had two extra tix, his brother cant go (loser) so i scooped it.
face value

LETS GO METS !!!!

JFreak said...

Wasted opportunity for the Tigers.

ToddPacker said...

You're a lucky man El P

JFreak said...

Ha, you're gonna go to see them lose. Have fun.

ToddPacker said...

My brother has 4 shitbag tix to game 5. I think he's going to sell them on ebay (If there is a game 5)

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev ditch the KVH jersey.

ToddPacker said...

That's not nice Jfreak

El Padrino said...

jfreak
WTF?

i thought we were friends

JFreak said...

Okay, so Verlander just threw a 75 mph curve ball. That's ridiculous. 101 to 75.

JFreak said...

More ex-Cubs on the Dodgers.

Sorry.

JFreak said...

I think I now hate Johnny Damon as much as Bill Simmons does.

ToddPacker said...

Dirty caveman just went yard

Spaceman Spiff said...

how the fuk, damon 3 run homer

El Padrino said...

i feel for cub fans
they are deranged

El Padrino said...

anybody know about this kuo guy

ToddPacker said...

You guys are probably too young to remember, but I've hated the cubs since the 84 season. they beat out the mets with a stong Sept

JFreak said...

If I remember correctly, the '69 Mets only got in because of a Cubs collapse.

So stop your whining.

El Padrino said...

i'm not whining

i dont hate the cubs at all
1969 my mom was like 11 years old
and in 1984 i wasnt even allowed to cross the street yet

JFreak said...

Damon's arm of rubber gives the Tigers a run.

JFreak said...

The whining comment was more directed to TP...but you can take offense if you feel led.

ToddPacker said...

You are right Freak...maybe I should let it go.

I did hit up a Cubs game at Wrigley last summer. It was awesome. Everyone needs to take in a game at wrigley at least once

temwr said...

You'd think by now Damon would have figured out how to use the rubber arm as a slingshot and just slingshot balls in.

JFreak said...

El Padrino said...

looks like jesus, throws like mary

JFreak said...

You know what I don't get?

Why Leyland is starting Sean Casey over Matt Stairs. Stairs is clutch. Big time. Who cares if he is like 300 pounds and has no mobility at first. That man can hurt the ball.

JFreak said...

ToddPacker said...

baseball-reference.com has Stairs listed at 175 lbs.

That pretty funny.

ToddPacker said...

What about the FSU / NC state game...any thoughts.


I think IAM is staying away bc he is TIVOing the game

temwr said...

iam is in exile for the day.

El Padrino said...

10.5 points is too much
that coach always has his team up for these games

El Padrino said...

4-3 TIGERS

The Rev said...

This is unbelievable...

http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/15687059.htm

Brett Myers just got off the hook.

I don't know what to think.

El Padrino said...

he's brett meyers BITCH!

anonymous said...

nearing 4pm and only one near-miss so far.. i heard a lady a couple cubes over say "tigers", so i plugged my ears and yelled 'AHHH'. then i took a walk to get away while they were discussing.

saved. just barely.

yes, i am a grown man. (well, according to age and stature.)

The Rev said...

From espn.com

"He was treated as a celebrity by court officers, who shook his hand and patted him on the back. One told him, "Good luck, it will be all right," while another said, "Nice seeing you again."

I know he's on my team and I'm a Phillies fan... but I got a problem with all of this.

He got off way too easy.

Spaceman Spiff said...

happens all the time rev

temwr said...

Ath-a-letes are better people than normal people.

El Padrino said...

ninth inning

The Rev said...

I know it happens all the time.

In the espn.com story, they show a photo of Brett and Kim walking into the courtroom, and I will say I thought Kim looked pretty sweet in her pinstripe suit.

Maybe she influenced the judge. It was her words that got the dismissal after all.

Hopefully they can win the next two in Det. and not have to go back to NY

What time are you heading over to Shea?

Isiah Thomas said...

Shanoff's reporting Eva Longoria is now dating AC Slater - is this true?

temwr said...

On the Slater thing. She was in the audience at dancing with the stars showing support for AC Slater.

Parker then got pissed.

Eva flew to France to make up with him.

Shanoff is a bit behind in the reporting of this. The local radio station here was all over it at 7am.

temwr said...

What the NHL season started yesterday?

El Padrino said...

TP, shortly
debating whether or not to take the John Rocker express or go home and pick up the whip

temwr said...

Who is KC Joyner, and why does the WWL refer to him as a Football Scientist?

ToddPacker said...

Let me throw out one more LETS GO METS

And I hope to read a couple of quality post describing the the game, tomorrow.

Hopefully you're not sitting next some really fat guy or a crying baby.

Spaceman Spiff said...

shanoff is days late, i think he reported el duque being out, TODAY

Isiah Thomas said...

KC Joyner is a stats guy. I subscribed to his stuff this year, bought his books, etc.

He's like the SABR equivalent for football.

El Padrino said...

crying baby will get thrown from mezzazine section and fat guy, well there's nothing i can do about the fat guy

Isiah Thomas said...

Does Whitlock have a Corso like curse?

temwr said...

People are asking him a lot about FF, but his answers about FF are dumb. I think someone even called him out on it during his chat.

He doesn't know much about FF, but seems to know good matchups.

For example: He can point out that WR A has a better match-up than RB B, but can't tell you which to start. Maybe he knows it depends on the point systems and how much RBs are valued compared to WRs, but I don't think he can take the analysis that far.

Anyway, he gets a B- so far. Would be an A if he chose questions that he could answer instead of a bunch of FF questions.

JFreak said...

So I rediscovered my hugeeeeee card collection.

I have a signed Marvin Harrison rookie card. Go me.

Also a 1992 Cubs set with Ryne Sandberg, Greg Maddux, Mark Grace, Sammy Sosa.

Makes me happy.

Isiah Thomas said...

He keeps his ESPN FF answers pretty vanilla.

Last week I picked up and started Eddie Kennison on his suggestion and he had 80 yds or so and a TD.

Started Reggie Williams a few weeks ago on his suggestion.

Overall his stuff is pretty interesting. He ranks players according to their matchups, his rankings being based of actual stats and not "gut feelings" that a lot of sites go off of.

temwr said...

When I rediscovered my card collection I looked up the value of all of the cards. They totalled like $100. At one time that total was closer to $2,000.

That market tanked.

temwr said...

Signed cards though hold value.

temwr said...

I like his WR vs WR comparisons, but get angry when people start talking about flex positions and whether they should start a WR or RB. At that point you need to know the scoring system.

temwr said...

Frankie from NY is awesome. His question was well written.

Isiah Thomas said...

I remember I bought a complete Fleer hockey set either Lindros' rookie year or year before, the complete set had a 5 card "bonus" set. I bet its worth .01 now. It was pretty expensive back then.

Isiah Thomas said...

the fantasy football chat on the WWL answers shit like "should I start Peyton Manning" or "do I play LDT or Jamal Lewis" dumb shit like that.

temwr said...

Haha, should I start Peyton.

temwr said...

BTW my Frankie from NY comment was the first chat comment I ever got in at the WWL. It is one of the worst things I ever submitted too.

They never answer what I really want to know.

anonymous said...

not reading a word thats been posted.. but i officially made it through the work day with no Tigers contacts.. got tough towards the end of the day, but im out now!

i hope i have good news waiting.... (cue all the snide "y'all got phucked up" comments..)

The Rev said...

I've collected cards since 1979, and collected autographed cars since the mid 80's.

I've had the debate as to whether or not a card holds its value when signed. I don't really care about that. To me, it's worth more. And to many collectors, it's worth more.

Marvin Harrison is a nice score.

The Rev said...

Actually, Zeke, I think the set you got with the Lindros rookie was Score. I remember that set had Lindros' rookie, and it had a 5 card subset. And at the time, that was the Holy Grail of rookie cards.

No, they didn't hold their value.

The Rev said...

BTW...

I didn't even notice until now that DB is posting again.

And he got 12 comments in two days.

Just throwing it out there for no apparent reason.

BARCELONA, Spain -- An all-Europe division of the NBA -- with teams in cities such as Madrid, London, Moscow, Berlin and Cologne -- has been a fantasy for basketball fans on this side of the Atlantic for a number of years.

That fantasy may have taken the first step toward reality in Barcelona this week when NBA Commissioner David Stern received an informal proposal from a delegation of mighty Spanish sporting club Real Madrid that could lead to five NBA expansion franchises one day being placed in Europe.
