Wednesday, Biatch

Kind of a slow day here midweek. Looking at the WWL.com’s main page there aren’t a lot of juicy headlines or stories. I could hear the virtual crickets as I was looking at their page. I’m sure this won’t stop Shanoff though.

I guess the biggest sports story is the NLCS, with STL taking game 5 from the Mets last night. Sorry EP, but I think the Mets are done unless they can pop off for 10 runs tonight. We’ll see.

A couple NFL players were suspended 4 games for banned substances. Shaun Rogers of the Lions and Matt Lehr of the Falcons. I bring this up bc Lehr is from my hometown. Ha.

Pro hoops are quickly creeping up on us. I’m ready. Haven’t ordered the NBA League Pass yet but I will. For any pro hoops fans out there that don’t have it, the League Pass is a must.

John Hollinger came out with his new player rankings for this season. Personally I don’t like the guy and could care less about his rankings, but ESPN was pimping them so I figured I’d mention it. The NBA doesn’t have the near the statistical analysis that MLB does and I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I’m not trying to discredit Hollinger but I’m not quite sure what he brings to the table.

Since there isn’t a ton to recap I’ll give you a quick book review of Michael Lewis’ newest offering, The Blind Side (TBS).

I finished this over the weekend and was eager to read since I enjoyed Moneyball.

In TBS Lewis explores why offensive lineman, more specifically, the left tackle have become so highly paid. He mixes in NFL history with the story of Michael Oher. On the NFL side he explores how defensive players, such as LT and Chris Doleman reaked havoc on QB’s and offenses in general. Oher’s story is more along the lines of “kid from the wrong side of the tracks makes good”.

Lewis discusses how as NFL offenses evolved from mainly running attacks into more pass friendly attacks the need for better offensive lineman increased. Instead of being interchangeable pieces, the need arose for ath-a-leets who could keep crazed maniacs like LT off the QB. Lewis concentrates on Bill Walsh and how his “West Coast” passing attack, based on timing routes, placed a high emphasis on keeping the QB upright.

The NFL history/offensive evolution is the background of the book. In the foreground is the story of Michael Oher. Oher is a black kid from the west side of Memphis. He’s from a broken home and wasn’t amounting to much. He could barely read and write and was headed down the wrong path. Before his freshman year in high school an older friend takes him to the other side of Memphis to get a “Christian” education from an affluent, predominantly white school.

Oher is a huge kid around 6’6’’ 350 lbs. but had never played sports and for that matter rarely went to school. Not to give away the whole book but when the kid gets to this new school his life changes. A white family takes him in and nurtures him and his athletic ability. He becomes a left tackle and becomes a commodity. Lewis tells his tale quite well and it is somewhat compelling. The book ends with Oher as a sophomore at Ole Miss where he is the starting left tackle with aspirations of going to “the league”.

I recommend the book as it’s a quick read and tells a good story.

Best actors for me include : Denzel, Hanks and Cruise. Let’s continue to discuss this.

Wednesday, BIATCH.

Sounds like a good read, if i was not illiterate i would get it.
That's a joke.

Mets love the drama but i have to say, that they are up shits creek now. Wright better get his shit together cause Delgado will got nothing to hit if he continues this string of at bats that are non-productive. I hate the Cardinal fans. I think So Taguchi is the skinniest man alive in that whole state.

El Padrino said...

hi bill

El Padrino said...

if bill mentions this book in his "book club gay column he likes to write" then we know fo sho he checks out this blog

whocares said...

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but those little fake red goaties that the Cards fans are sporting may be the gayest thing in sports since The Rally Monkey.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Reading books is such a hassle. Too much remember.

El Padrino said...

how bout the towels
fuckin towels, waving and waving
sorry IAM but the Tigers do this too, do they hand those out?
Why? Crowd cant create thier own energy, they need some fucking towel to wave around like a monkey.
These people are not even human.

You wont be seeing any towels at shea tonight.

ToddPacker said...

EP

Why do the Mets love the drama? It pisses me off. Why the hell did they take so many first pitch strikes right down the middle of the plate. How do the you get shut down by The Weave and a couple of rookies Green is so un-clutch, he couldn't even get that run home in the 8th.

Towels are lame

El Padrino said...

how do you stab a bitch with one leg?

He Stabbed Me

El Padrino said...

i dont get it
the stregnth was supposed to be the lineup and now that the achilles heel, it makes me sick
literally

jugdish said...

The Mets are making Weaver look REALLY good!

Isiah Thomas said...

Weaver is fragile mentally, I can't believe he's doing this well in the post season.

Isiah Thomas said...

any rumors who the Mets are gonna get for SP's in the off-season EP?

How are you gonna put together a good ball club and have old man river as your pitching staff?

El Padrino said...

mets made him look good is right

fucking pujols, america got to see what a piece of crap he really is last night, making floyd run out the weak groundball towards 2nd base when all he had to do was flip it to Wainwright. cunt.

El Padrino said...

Well Pedro will be back by June i think, then you would have to think Maine/Bannister/Pelfrey will be in the mix as the #3 or 4.

I know they'll make a run at Zito but I'm not so sold on him after that last outing. I don't even know who else is a free agent.

Los said...

Could we replace McCarver with a talkin' monkey at this point?

jugdish said...

Pujols is awesome! He might not hit a HR everytime he is up, but the man can flat out play.

Isiah Thomas said...

Bizarre

Isiah Thomas said...

great article EP...

"Sir Paul allegedly told his wife during her pregnancy she should not breastfeed because 'they are my breasts'. He is alleged to have told her: 'I don't want a mouthful of breastmilk.'"

anonymous said...

Weaver is gonna parlay this postseason into a nice contract, and proceed to become the highest paid batting practice pitcher in the history of the game.

Isiah Thomas said...

and in that article Mcarthy is wearing a "no more landmines" t shirt.

I love when celebs try and champion a cause yet they're so far removed from it its comical. I know his ex lost a leg but I doubt it was from a landmine.

If I was in a war and some asshole was trying to kill me and I could set some landmines I'd do it in a hot second.

Yet there's Paul with his billions telling me not to. FUCK YOU PAUL.

The Rev said...

Best actors...

Tom Hanks
Al Pacino
Jack Nicholson
Robert DeNiro
Tom Cruise
Dustin Hoffman
Paul Newman

El Padrino said...

no more land mines

but i stab my legless wife

talk about hypocrisy!!

Isiah Thomas said...

"You do not replace Tiki Barber, he's a Hall of Famer," Accorsi told The Times. "You have to go beyond the statistics to completely appreciate him, but I think he qualifies on numbers alone."

I don't think Tiki is a HOF'er. If he is Terrel Davis def. is in.

Isiah Thomas said...

good call Rev, I didn't include Deniro/Nicholson/Pacino since I'd assume they're a given and on everyone's list. They're #1 everyone else is fighting for the next tier.

El Padrino said...

He's not a HOF'er yet.
And Im a Giant fan.

Isiah Thomas said...

How much for one rib?

CNN has some great stories today. And before anyone goes all ACLU on me thats a quote from Rock in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka.

The Rev said...

I'm as liberal as anyone in the world, we all know that. But at the same time... that Chris Rock's mom story is a little weird.

I've sat at a Denny's for a half hour waiting to be served. And I'm as white as Mr. Met. It ain't racism, it's the fact that those restaurants generally suck at service.

If I had gotten a free meal out of it, I'd be happy as a pig in slop.

Maybe there is racism at some Cracker Barrel restaurants. Who knows? But most managers like to diffuse situations quickly, which is what he did with the free meal. Maybe he didn't go to the servers and berate them right then and there because he knew they were busy and wanted to talk about it later in private.

I've never eaten at a Cracker Barrel. Is it any good?

The Rev said...

"The only thing he said was we could have a free meal and neither of us wanted to eat."

Um, if you didn't want to eat, why were you sitting for a half an hour in a Cracker Barrel?

If you only wanted coffee, you should have just left after 15 minutes.

jugdish said...

Jack Nicholson is not a great actor...he plays himself in all the roles he is in. He is like Denzel Washington. Don't get me wrong, they are in some great movies...but it ain't hard to play yourself.

Did you see Dan Marino in Ace Ventura??? He was awesome!

whocares said...

Sir Paul wouldnt even let his woman have a bedpan?

You can crawl your one legged ass to the John biaaatch.

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP, Zito would dominate the NL, get at least 20 wins, but then youll get pissed at him in the world series

ToddPacker said...

Cracker Barrel is just OK
It's real greasy type food, good for breakfast after a night of boozing. And the service is always bad, at least the one that I've been to.

Isiah Thomas said...

I used to go to Cracker Barrell in college after a night of heavy drinking and it would cure you right up.

Always take the free meal, always.

Spaceman Spiff said...

pujols had an earpiece listening to the telecast, as soon as they put up his quote about glavine not pitching well, he though "i gotta back this up" and hit that homer

Isiah Thomas said...

What about Nicholson is One Flew Over the Coo Coo's Nest or The Shining?

whocares said...

Sounds to me like the dude at Cracker Barrell saw the lawsuit coming from a mile away and offered the free meal. I've had shitty service in my day, never gotten a free meal offered up for a long wait.

And it's good to know that Al Sharpton is on the case. You know, tackling the big issues.

jugdish said...

I never saw One Flew over the Coo Coo's nest, but The Shining wasn't really a stretch role for him.

El Padrino said...

you have to see one flew over the cuckoo's nest
have to

ToddPacker said...

coo coo's nest is awesome

I think he was great in A Few Good Men, but I agree the Jug. A lot of actors are great at playing themselves in roles. Denzel was a good example

Spaceman Spiff said...

Zeke,
espn was shocked to learn brunell would start this week, they scrolled it on the bottom of the screen, it said 'mark brunell will start this sunday against the colts' it didnt say 'mark brunell - toe (probable)' nothing like that, just says he would start, how is this worthy of the bottom bar? because its that fucking obvious he should not.

mound of venus said...

CRACKER BARREL IS THE ONLY PLACE I WILL STOP TO EAT ON A ROAD TRIP. IT HAS A NICE SELECTION THAT CAN BE GENERALLY CLASSIFIED AS "SOUTHERN COMFORT" FOOD.

WAS GOING TO POST TODAY. THE REST OF THIS WEEK IS SHOT FOR ME. CAN I HAVE MONDAY 0F NEXT WEEK, REV?

mound of venus said...

SKINS COVER THE +9 SPREAD THIS WEEK. I ALSO TOOK A FLIER ON THEIR +400 MONEYLINE. WE WILL NOT BE DENIED.

Spaceman Spiff said...

Holy shit, marcus vick is on the dolphins active roster, #3 QB!

Stiggy said...

Well, I was going to put up a link to a funny story since it's a slow sports day, but I'm a moron and can't figure out how to do it. Damn!

Beth82678 said...

While we're throwing out favorite actors, one of mine that I don't think gets the full recognition he deserves is John Cusack. He's been in some great movies such as Gross Pointe Blank and Identity. He's one too who can play all kinds of roles.

And hey, it wasn't just any bedpan but an antique one. Not that I'm in any way defending McCartney but I bet it was like $10k or something.

Stiggy said...

I agree with Beth. John Cusak, great actor. I'm also a big fan of Tobey Maguire.

The Rev said...

Mound...

I don't necessarily make that decision. I usually take Wednesdays, but Zeke took it today and I'm fine with that.

If everyone else is cool with it, I'm cool.

Isiah Thomas said...

Cuckoo...

It will always bee Coo Coo to me.

As retarded will always be retarted to me.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i dont believe heather mills for a second.

Isiah Thomas said...

my bad Rev, didn't mean to step on toes, esp. if you had something prepared.

I didn't want to slack so I put something up today.

Isiah Thomas said...

another 80's classic with Cusak is the one with him, Bobcat Goldthwait and Demi Moore - where they're at the beach and they win that boat race in the end.

Isiah Thomas said...

speaking of 80's classics, one thing that has been lost in the shuffle of CGI, etc is the synthesizer solo's.

You always new when that synthesizer solo busted out something good was about to happen.

The Rev said...

OK, wait a second...

If you bought a $10,000 bedpan, would you want anyone pissing in it? I don't think so.

And, would you want to sleep in a room with a bedpan full of piss? No, I didn't think so either.

Paul probably didn't want to buy anything that expensive just to piss in, and probably didn't want to sleep in a room with a pan of piss. Sounds perfectly logical to me.

Can we call Heather out on this? I mean, you want a freakin bedpan and you want it to be an expensive one? Sounds a little excessive to me. Even if you are the richest man in the world, at some point the bullshit meter goes off in your head.

Yeah, maybe Paul is crazy and capable of some of those things, but I'm actually having trouble believing some of these things. I haven't ruled out the possibility that Heather is a crazy bitch liar either.

ToddPacker said...

A great 80's Cusak Movie was Better off dead:

"Sorry I blew up you mom, Ricky"

ToddPacker said...

Isiah Thomas said...

MOV, I'm crazy enough to think the Skins might pull it out.

Indy can't stop the run. If the Skins dedicate themselves to the run and pound it somewhat effectively 40+ times they can limit Peyton's possessions.

Because he will carve up that D.

Isiah Thomas said...

Spiff I thought the same thing - WTF is Brunell starting getting bottom line treatment. I was praying for a "Mark Brunell - dead" headline instead.

jugdish said...

The Colts just signed McFarland to help with the run...a solid move.

El Padrino said...

was cusak the guy in Con Air?

the head of prison trasportation or something, that was him right?

The Rev said...

No problem, Zeke. I didn't have anything planned except rehashing the suicide pool. And that's getting to the point where no rehashing is necessary with only 6 people left.

After all my crap yesterday, I slept late today to get some rest. I'm glad someone else stepped up. I'm happy just being a commenter today.

Isiah Thomas said...

has anyone seen the porn she did back in the day?

whocares said...

Rev,

A bedpan full of piss is the risk you take when you marry a one legged chick.

The Rev said...

John Cusack and Better Off Dead... definitely one of the most quotable movies in our generation.

"This is pure snow! Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?"

Isiah Thomas said...

I thought bedpans were for #2....

empty beer bottles are for #1

The Rev said...

"A bedpan full of piss is the risk you take when you marry a one legged chick."

I never thought of it that way.

Can we get a general ruling on this? Should you force a one legged chick to simply go to the can in the middle of the night like the rest of us with two legs, or do you give in to this request and have the bedpan?

I'm as sympathetic as the next guy, but at the same time,I don't want to sleep near a pan of piss.

jugdish said...

I can't stop once I start...it stings!

Isiah Thomas said...

The REAL question with Heather Mills is that leg -

Do you keep it on or take it off when you bang her?

Stiggy said...
This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.
The Rev said...

Oh, #2 is completely out of the question.

She hobbles her ass to the can for #2 no matter what. Man law!

Isiah Thomas said...

thejaywhite should give the official on/off answer.

ToddPacker said...

Hey Rev, how about:

"that's a damn shame, thowing away a perfectly good white boy"

ToddPacker said...

I think it would be more of a hop than a hobble

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm against stars naming their kid weird shit even though it cracks me up, but we need more weird actor names.

Bobcat makes me laugh everytime I say it.

Stiggy said...

One Crazy Summer was the name of the movie with John Cusack, Demi Moore and Bobcat. Classic 80's comedy.

The Rev said...

Take it off for banging, I say.

Having it out of the way gives you a few more unique options for positioning.

Isiah Thomas said...

I was watching some old episodes of Flavor of Love last night including the finale.

Flav is a genius. His show is basically The Black Bachelor. I love how he dogged out New York again.

Beth82678 said...

Oh I think the leg has to be off Zeke, easier access. Plus, do you want to risk getting hit upside the head with that thing just as you're getting into it?

Isiah Thomas said...

that was Flavor of Love 2.

Spaceman Spiff said...

hold up, chargers only favored by 5.5 against chiefs! they just got destroyed by a lesser steelers team. this looks like a trap like the bengals game last week. ill probly tease it.

Spaceman Spiff said...

oh wait, is it because of arrowhead

ToddPacker said...

Anyone see that Bobcat movie about the alcoholic clown, i think it was call "shakes the clown"...pretty funny

The Rev said...

Yes, Todd! That's a classic!

And in Better Off Dead, how about a very underrated babe... EG Daily. She was the singer in the tight dress at the dance.

She played Pee Wee Herman's girlfriend in Pee Wee's Big Adventure, and in real life became very wealthy and had a big career as one of the voices in The Rugrats.

And in recent pictures I've seen of her, still very hot!

Isiah Thomas said...

alright how much of a leg does she have? Is it a stump at the hip? All the way to the knee? We need a ruling here.

Off might make for interesting possibilities but it could weird you out.

Also - is the scar at the stump all gnarly? Does it smell? I MUST KNOW.

Isiah Thomas said...

Do you think when he got pissed at her he'd hide the leg or hold it out of her reach and say shit like

"I told you bitch don't mess with me"

The Rev said...

Saw that Flavor of Love finale last night.

The argument at the end between him and New York was classic.

Flav basically brought her back into the mix for some easy scores along the way knowing she would give it up and provide more interesting TV along the way, then told her to get her ass to steppin at the end.

Thejaywhite would have been proud of that move!

Zeke

that stump talk is hilarious...actually spit some diet coke all over keyboard

Beth82678 said...

I know what you mean Steve. When I saw Cruise in Rain Man everyone was talking about what a great job Dustin Hoffman did in it (and he did), but I thought Cruise held his own (insert generic gay joke here). But now no matter what movie I see him in all I can see in my head is him jumping around Oprah's couch like an epileptic monkey.

whocares said...

One Crazy Summer. Great Flick.

Any movie that has Bobcat dressed as Godzilla destroying a miniature town while Japanese business men stare in horror is okay in my book.

whocares said...

I would think the fake leg is really heavy. Could she move at all in the sack with that thing on? Would it be creepy banging a one legged chick with the stump just staring back at you? What happens if you accidentally glance over at the edge of the bed and the fake leg is just sitting there? Too many questions to answer. The only solution is dont bang one legged chicks.

Great article on Smokin Joe Frazier.

He came into a bar where I was the DJ once here in the suburbs. Very cool guy to everyone there. After getting his autograph, I asked him if he wanted to hear a song, and he wanted some Michael Jackson. I played him some "Smooth Criminal".

I think Smokin Joe likes to hang out in small bars and entertain everyone. That's just the way he rolls.

anonymous said...

so bottom line is.. they let black folk into Cracker Barrel now?

The Rev said...

Joe's right about one thing too...

Ali was great, but he wouldn't have been nearly as great without Joe Frazier.

Like Wilt and Bill Russell. Like Bird and Magic. You need a great rival to really become an icon.

MLB reads this blog too.
goodbye towels in the D.

Spaceman Spiff said...

is it ironic that the cavs have lebron now, and will end the bulls season year after year.

Spaceman Spiff said...

they just wont get world series towels, but they are not banning towels, the fans will bring the ones they already have, towels are not dead in detroit

anonymous said...

as has been stated before.. at least we dont have the rally monkey.

y'all dont know about gum time yet though..

jugdish said...

IAM...I think you should throw squid out there like during the Red Wings games.

Spaceman Spiff said...

rally monkey may have been dumb, but they won the world series, fuck yea

El Padrino said...

oh so it's an mlb idea

another great idea by mlb!!

if those towels were handed out in ny i would wipe my ass with it then wave it around.

anonymous said...

the squid would be an great idea. it would get people so fired up. you dont even know... hah

jugdish said...

Rev...glad you made it through OK yesterday, but if things took a turn for the worse...we were ready.

anonymous said...

put me a casket on order, cause if the Tigs win it, my life is complete and im goin out with a bang!

The Rev said...

Jug... that was funny!

I almost forgot the National Funeral Directors convention was being held in Philadelphia this week.

Being buried in a Phillies casket or cremated in a Phillies urn... kind of fitting to go down in the logo of the organization that has lost more games in their history than any other team in professional sports.

Beth82678 said...

Steve, I appreciate the offer, you're a real humanitarian. :-)

I can see it now, I'll be in a horrific car crash, both legs gone, contemplating a life of wheelchairs, antique bedpans and children staring at me, but then I'll break into a smile as I remember your offer and think, "hey, at least I can still get laid!"

anonymous said...

whats the deal with someone trying to establish the new 7 wonders of the world?

i didnt hear the story, but just heard the headline on my way in today..

are people bored or what?

JFreak said...

damnit jug, I was gonna post that link.

jugdish said...

Don't forget about the 8th wonder of the world...the Astrodome...which may soon be some kind of shopping mall.

Oh yeah, and Chyna...the 9th wonder of the world. I don't really have anything else to add about her...

jugdish said...

I should have defaulted to you on that one. Since you're a Cubs fan, you might get a discount...:)

anonymous said...

Chyna did an instore signing at a record store i worked at way back in the day.

nice "person", but looks like a man, baby!

using the urinal next to me gave her away.

jugdish said...

You should have hit her with the 2X4 wrapped in barbed wire!

anonymous said...

she probably wouldve bit it in half!

Isiah Thomas said...

"thunder sticks" are the absolute worst.

I've been at the Angels place when they flash the Rally Monkey. They start teasing it around the 4th inning.

I thought it was alright.

The Rev said...

I've tried Thunder Sticks in my past, at a Philadelphia Flyers game. They are highly overrated.

I don't mind the towel. At least they give me something I can take home and use later. I can't do shit with Thunder Sticks.

Isiah Thomas said...

'Even the most vicious message boards and blogs on the planet can't think of anything bad to say about "The Wire." A no-lose for Cruise."

This is from SG's new column. We got another shout-out.

Isiah Thomas said...

"5. What about a semibiographical movie about a controversial, diminutive professional football owner (Randall Binder?) who inadvertently destroys one of the league's most famous franchises (the Washington Injuns?). Maybe Cruise could even base his portrayal of a real-life owner. You know, assuming he knows someone like that? "

This is hitting too close to home.

ToddPacker said...

worse than towels or thundersticks are pom-poms. popular with certain college football programs. I think lsu and bama are big fans. every half-way decent play all you can hear is the stupid whooshing of pom-poms.

mound of venus said...

if anyone has some time today starting at 1:45 there is an exceedingly good soccer match on the Duece. Barcelona v. Chelsea. I plan on leaving work early to watch. I recommend that you do the same. Of course, since most of us here are Americans I really should have saved myself typing these words. But if you like the world's football then you gots to watch.

whocares said...

Yep, shoulda saved the finger strength.

Where do you go to take in a soccer game...or match or whatever?

fuck.

and it fucking swore a whole fucking shit load. i was fucking distracted!!

fuck!

and now schools are starting to teach kids how to fight back against gunman.

this will pan out well.

THE CHAMP. said...

"fight back against gunmen"

here kids have your very own ak-47. if a gunmen tries to kill you kill him first. or if you don't like the school just fill it up with lots of bullets.

oh, but don't play tag. you could get hurt.

El Padrino said...

just booked my green bay trip
still looking for a flight though
so far cheapest is $279 which is high for fucking wisconsin
they should thank their lucky stars for the packers.

Going Nov 19 game vs. Patriots
me and 3 buddies, this is the 2nd leg of a lifelong trip to every stadium and we did it last year so fuck bill i had the idea first.
last year we went to hotlanta..

waffle house was dope.

anonymous said...

EP, let me know when u come to the D... im sure its super high on your list!

El Padrino said...

funny you say that but i might be there for a few hours

seems like because GB is no where land there is no non stop flight so i will most likely connect in Detroit Metro airport for a n hour or so, if you want to meet me at the airport bar in the US AIR terminal feel free.

THE CHAMP. said...

EP-

you won't be dissapointed with GB. I've been 3 times and all were good. Even sat in the last row for one game and enjoyed myself. Knowledgeable fans, but they're dicks.

THE CHAMP. said...

waffle house=greatest afterthebar food ever.

El Padrino said...

well i got endzone seats so...

wausau, WI airport
is that close to GB

anyone?

I actually tried to steal a whole place setting from Waffle House, and as I was about two feet from the door the cook asked me what the hell I was doing. I turned and tried to give it all back, but he said "hell, if you want some at least take some clean dishes!".

I was floored, and the thought of taking a set of clean dishes home was not as fun as stealing dirty ones. I got Jedi mind fucked. And I left empty handed.

The Rev said...

Worst I ever stole was a crab mallet from Phillips in Baltimore.

I have a feeling though that they don't care if you take those.

anonymous said...

stealing is bad you guys.

please dont do it anymore, k????

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Wausau isn't all that close. Appleton is better.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I like stealing. I used to steal booze all the time when I was underage. That shit was hard to do.

anonymous said...

you darn kids and your baggy pants!

Spaceman Spiff said...

dont tell me ive never had a coke before, got a mind like a steel trap

ToddPacker said...

The best underage booze stealing scam:

I used to go into supermarkets (Waldbaums in NY) during the day, walk right to the beer isle, pick up a case of beer and walk to the front desk. Tell the lady at the desk that my dad left a case of beer in the shoppingcart and I was bringing it out to him. Worse case- the bitch says no or "go get your dad", then I scram. Best case she says yes and even puts one of those "PAID" stickers on it.

Worked like a champ usually, but it was a lot of work looking for a new store to hit up.

Worse part about it now that I remember, we usually stole PBR...not too bright.

THE CHAMP. said...

EP-

Appleton is best (about a 30-45 min drive to the stadium). Milwaukee may be cheaper because its more of a major airport, but you're looking at a 1.5-2 hour drive as i remember.

El Padrino said...

appleton or gb is how im going

if your going to have an international airport in green bay why not have direct flights into it?

THE CHAMP. said...

GB is like one neighborhood. the pro teams don't even fly in their. they fly in and stay in appleton.

THE CHAMP. said...

fly in there. SORRY

The Rev said...

This is what I know about Wisconsin, based on a friend of mine who talks about it regularly...

Butter burgers are awesome!

anonymous said...

anybody going to games this week, watch out for dirty bombs at nfl stadiums.

just sayin.

El Padrino said...

fucking orbitz and these POS sites are only giving me fuckin wasua which is like 3 hours away but like thru cornfields and shit

anonymous said...

ie...New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland.

El Padrino said...

now rev, no butter burgers for you

Spaceman Spiff said...

appleton doesnt have an airport code you can put in the box?

anonymous said...

EP, this is why you need to take that Series 7 and become Seth Davis...

then youll have a secretary to make all your reservations instead!

The Rev said...

I didn't say I had one. I just know they're good.

Turkey sandwiches on wheat bread for me.

Stiggy said...

Culver's butter burgers are quite delicious. Combine that with some cheese curds and you've got quite a meal.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Culver's butter burgers are WAY overrated. It's fast food, which means they're made like shit. Solly's is the way to go. You can't even put ketchup on that shit 'cause it slides right off. Kopps or Hefner's in Cedarburg is money too.

El Padrino said...

this is why middle america is obese

yeah they got a code but
1. no direct flights
2. raking me over the coals

ITS FUCKING WISCONSIN, if IT WERENT FOR THE PACKERS NO ONE WOULD COME TO YOUR STATE!!!!!!!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Yeah, I can't imagine why it would cost so much to come here. It's not just because of the gay ass Packers.

ToddPacker said...

EP

How you feelin about tonight?
I think the crowd will go nuts if the mets go off early in the game. Hopefully they can spot Maine a bunch of runs.

El Padrino said...

meiz the drive from appleton to hotel in GB is like 20 min right

reason is
u thin i'll make a 5:47 flight out of appleton is thr game ends @ 4

JFreak said...

Traffic is horrible outside Lambeau. Never been during a game, but stayed with some people from Green Bay, and they say it's horrific.

Stiggy said...

I live in Middle America. Are you saying I'm obese? I've actually only had a Culver's burger once and I didn't like it very much. I was throwing something out there. Not doing such a great job with that.

El Padrino said...

not saying your fat stiggs but the cardinal game had one skinny person in the whole stadium and he was chinese

El Padrino said...

and i meant these rest's make all these fat foods....it leaves people no choice

I know you meant nothing by it EP. I just wanted to see what you would write back. It is true, though, about the food being served today. The last road trip I took (which was down to St. Loo) consisted of many poor food choices. I felt like crap afterwards.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

El Pad. Yeah It's like 20 minutes.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Traffic is definitely a monster bitch. You never know though. If the Pack keeps it up there might not be a whole lot to worry about.

El Padrino said...

thanks meiz
booking this airfare is real pain in the balls

back to the mets i go

The Rev said...

Damn, Billy Wagner knows how to make it interesting, don't he?

Isiah Thomas said...

Game 7....anything happens.

Spaceman Spiff said...

so taguchi starts game 7

JFreak said...

I've decided that I don't want to write today.

I appoint Rev to start in my spot.

The Rev said...

Oh, you "appoint" me?

I just got appointed. Lucky me!

I'll post today.

jugdish said...

Is it me or is this NLCS never going to freaking end? When did they make it a best out of 9 series anyways?

IAM...at this point in the game...who would you rather see your Tigers play...assuming that one of these two teams actually want to win the NLCS that is?

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

anonymous said...

jugdish said...
