Go Pack Go!

Warning: This is very long, if you just want to read about Lambeau scroll down to "Lambeau". I felt like the total experience started the minute we landed so I really didn't spare any details.

Lambeau Field. What a place. I don't even know where to begin. First the stats:

4 planes, 4 airports, over 2000 miles logged, one gray Impala, 42 beers, one resident Green Bay crack whore, 58 cows, 73,000 Packer fans, one old perverted host at Titletown Brewery, one sprinting waitress (at the same establishment), one gay Chinese gas attendant, two black people in the entire stadium, one three fingered brat server, and one really fucked up room that the cleaning lady may still be cleaning now.

Saturday

We left early Saturday from Newark, NJ airport. With a stopover in Chicago we were a little sleepy so as we settled in for the 2hr flight we all agreed that a morning cocktail was in order. You know, just to perk up a bit. Nothing like a good screwdriver on a early morning flight.
After landing in Chicago (tremendous airport) it was on to Wausau, Wisconsin. 30 minutes later we were in Wausau. Time to get the rental car and drive the 90 miles to Green Bay.

Now as you may imagine there isn't much going on in Wausau. In fact when the guy in front of me asked the rental car clerk where the nearest drug store was she laughed. Of course I chimed in with a "well, if you travel 50 miles south there is a general store on the right" joke. She seemed semi-amused. This may be a good time to mention that she didn't wash her face with soap in about 2 months. The drive there was fun, we stumbled out of the gate by making one bad right turn but thank god for Chinese people. What the fuck are they everywhere or what? Coming to an intersection straight out of Cast Away (right, left, straight, go back) we asked where we can find the route we needed and sure enough my man Don Ho knew the way to go!

We got to Green Bay in under two hours. The drive was cool. Bunch of farms, tiny restaurants, lots of cows and horses. Pulling into Green Bay and immediately you see the impact the Packers have on this town of 102,000 people. Packers signs, flags and apparel covered most of the town. As we get to the "downtown" area there were some shops and restaurants. After checking into our hotel we headed to TitleTown Brewery . The food was pretty good and the beer was fresh homemade shit. Pretty good. Plus alot of Packer Memorabilia and shit. After that we wanted to find a liquor store to load our room with beer. The plan was to watch the OSU-MICH game and other games while getting loaded. We found the only liquor store there and I decided that we were only to drink shit made in Wisconsin. So this meant, Miller brands, Old Style, Pabst, Milwaukee's Best and a few other one's that started with an L and ended with an U. But first we had to ask the resident Green Bay crack whore which was better. Olde Style or Pabst. Bitch smiled with some fucked up tufts and was in the most country ass accent you know said "member when I used to drank Olde Style? (country laugh). Um, I don't know which is better. I LIKE BUUUDWEEISER!" Ok then, settled. Ring up the Pabst and let's get the f out of here (we had a running joke all weekend about that country skank, one of them was me saying that she ate Dick and Balls for breakfast every morning).

So we had 42 beers to plow through. One of my boys really wasn't feeling the beer so it was more like 3 of us on that 42. Long story short there were only 5 left when we checked out. Basically we drank them all and had the balls to head down to the hotel Pub and shoot some darts and play some video blackjack. The hotel housed mostly people in town for the Packer game. So the atmosphere was real cool. There were even some Pat fans roaming around to make fun of. We ended up drinking a few more beers down at the Pub which wasn't a good idea considering we already went through about 30 cans of Miller High Life and Pabst. After the Pub my cousin was hungry so we headed over to a sports bar that was serving food til 2am. I had on a yellow Farve jersey with nothing under that and no sneakers on. Just socks. P.S it was 30 degrees that night. Basically I was walking around downtown Green Bay with no sneakers on at 1:30am. After shoving a few pies of pizza down our throats we all crashed.

Lambeau

Waking up the next morning never felt so bad. After my boy Drock started the heave-ho conga line we laid down, cleaned up and headed to Lambeau with the rest of what seemed like the whole town. It was great. Driving in towards the stadium all you saw was Packer fans. Along the tree-laden blocks were signs saying "No Parking on Day of Packer Games". Starting 10 blocks from the Stadium were signs for parking. But not like municipal parking. People would charge to park on their lawns, driveways or on their front curbs. It was crazy. I chose a nice little modest house to donate my $15 for parking. But when I pulled in, the whole backyard is open and packed with cars. They must make $10,000 a year during the Packer season. And from the guy's backyard you saw the top two points of Lambeau....an oasis of history in the middle of one of the smallest cities in America.

The walk from the car to Lambeau.......
The closer we got the better it looked. Big and green. Sounds simple right? The Lambeau Atrium was sort of centered in the middle of the stadium. Throngs of people draped in green and yellow. I felt the mystique. It was imposing....almost like a big bully. I could see why teams (mostly in the past) were intimidated by Lambeau.

Inside Lambeau.......
It was like a mini glasshouse with the Packers Pro Shop, Curly's Pub, Hall of Fame Grill and Frozen In Time Ice Cream Shop. The entrances to the actual Stadium part were to the right and left. Once you went in the cold slapped you in the face. Every 12 feet was a food stand or a beer stop. Brat's, pizza, hot dogs, burgers, chili's, etc. My first order was a bowl of Chili and a Miller Lite in a souvenir cup. Later we had some brat's of course, delicious stuff.

Sitting down.........
Once we found our seats I realized that there wasn't a bad seat in the house. It's a stadium that holds 70,000+ and there were no real seats. The stadium was filled with bleachers. Metal bleachers each marked with a number. The crowd was close to the action too, like on top of the Pats bench and the Pack's bench. It was old school at it's finest. We settled in right when the Packers were being introduced. I looked around, took a deep breath and took in the atmosphere. It was clean, crisp air, sun was shining brightly, fans were cheering the intro's and I was in Lambeau. I looked at the crew, told em to suck it all in. I was sitting next to an old couple that had been season ticket holder for 31 years. Packer country indeed.

The game........the crowd......more Lambeau
Everyone knows they didn't win. But that doesn't mean the game wasn't exciting. The fans are great. No matter what the situation they cheered and tried to will their team to do well. Every 10 minutes or so the chant "Go Pack Go"! would ring throughout the stadium. Even on bad plays the groaning was to a minimum. Farve looked putrid but was never booed. At one point a man to my left was clamoring for Aaron Rodgers and just about everyone in my section who heard him, scolded him like a dog who just shit on the rug. Never talk bad about Farve. You want to talk about legend. Shit. The minute this man retires a statue is going right outside next to Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi statues. When he got taken off the field holding his arm I thought the lady in front of me was going to cry. They were devastated, you must of heard the OHHHH! all the way to Cali. But as Aaron came onto the field everyone applauded and rooted for the young man. It didn't matter if Satan was QB'ing....as long as he had a Packer jersey on they were rooting for him. Best hometown crowd/team I've been around. After the game we went down to the endzone where players would have leaped into the crowd had the Packers score. Took some pics and took it all in once again before leaving.

For the good times the crowd was more than electric. Loud and armed with white towels they made sure they were heard all the way in Dorchester, MA. Unbelievable experience. Every man that loves football or sports in general should make the pilgrimage to Lambeau Field. And to sum up the crowd, it's the 4th quarter, about 3 minutes left andit's 35-0 New England. Most of the crowd was still in attendance. Most of the crowd was CHEERING the Packers on. CHEERING Aaron Rodgers to make a play, CHEERING the defense to force a turnover. After the game we went down to the endzone where players would have leaped into the crowd had the Packers score. Took some pics and took it all in once again before leaving. What a place. Make the pilgramage. Go to Lambeau.

Duke vs Marquette tonight at 10

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

HaHaHa first and second bitches, BASK! BASK! BASK!


I'm out, way to much work to do today

Beth82678 said...

Great recap El Pad, I could almost smell the brats cooking.

(Minor quibble though - isn't Don Ho Hawaiian and not Chinese?)

ToddPacker said...

Nice post EP...Pabst brings back some memories of my youth....the whole lambeau vibe sounds a lot like the vibe at a lot of college stadiums....i've got to make a trip up there soon....no boozing Sunday night?

El Padrino said...

they all look the same beth

ToddPacker said...

nice call beth...if nothing else the brady bunch has taught me that Don Ho is hawaiian.

Jay Scott said...

go duke

El Padrino said...

just a few at the game, then we went to Old Country Buffet to stuff our faces...
7pm flight back out

ToddPacker said...

oh, i thought you stayed sun. night...sounds like a great time....what's the next statdium on your list

El Padrino said...

all depends on the rest of season and off-season plots and shit
I'd like to do a PA double dip
Pittsburgh one week, Philly the next but for the Philly game the Giants have to be in town because I can't root for Philly.

Also want to see Manning so maybe Indy

jugdish said...

You might want to add Houston to your list so you have a chance to see David Carr before he is run out of town...:)

ToddPacker said...

i saw manning in jax last year...it was great the crowd was doing the "cut that meat" chant the whole game...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Leinenkugel's, you ass. That shit is the straight truth. Mix Honey Weiss with Berry Weiss and you get Honey Bears. Delicious but, a little heavy.

El Padrino said...

meizer!!
yeah that's it...i should have tried it

nice state buddy, i enjoyed myself.

El Padrino said...

i hate plaxico burress

temwr said...

Leinenkugel's...word.

temwr said...

WTH

Izzo



People actually think Izzo would coach both fb and bb for the Spartans???

Martin VanNostrand said...

Great recap El P. Good call on only brew made in Wisconsin. I've had both PBR and Old Style. Neither are great but I like Old Style a little better. Now I have to find some Leinenkugel's.

Strolling through a 30 degree Green Bay in socks and a #4 jersey. That is awesome.

El Padrino said...

mv thanks, i gotta go find that beer too...seems like i missed out
i did however learn that there is only so much Pabst a man can drink

Martin VanNostrand said...

"i did however learn that there is only so much Pabst a man can drink"

truer words have not been spoken. I dj'ed with a friends band at a frat party last month and all they had was PBR. After 3 or 4 I was done.

ToddPacker said...

"i did however learn that there is only so much Pabst a man can drink"

I agree EP.
I grew up on Pabst and Shaefer. That's the only stuff i could steal from my pop's supply.

temwr said...

Mets players are old.

ToddPacker said...

was that a moises alou shot....what do you think of the signing EP?

ToddPacker said...

Wright and Reyes balance out the age issue a little

temwr said...

Those 2 don't help enough.

Plus Franco pretty much cancels them both out. He is like 55.

Although you can say that they have the experience to win a title.

El Padrino said...

well i'd rather have Floyd out there but alou kills lefties and we got insurance on the bench so i guess it's not a terrible deal

temwr said...

Alou also has pee hands. Which is like mini poop hands. So he has that going for him.

kodiac130 said...

Why would someone only be able to drink like 3 or 4 PBR's? Sure, it tastes like piss, but it goes down a lot smoother than Linies. PBR is personally my second favorite brew next to CL...the problem is that the next morning you will probably be spending about 5 hours on the john. Oh, and also, there is a pretty good brew made out of LaCrosse WI, I think it's called City Brew.

kodiac130 said...

and hey, Padrino, when are you going to hit the Metrodome? I know it looks shitty on t.v., but I assure you....it is 100 times worse when you are there in person. I hope the Vikings never leave it (I'm pissed about the new Twins stadium). It's kind of like the retro Padres uniforms, so hideous it's awsome.

El Padrino said...

Metrodome, sure...when they get some players i would like to watch

sorry just cant get jacked up about Brad Johnson.

i think the vikes are the most boring team in the league today

Isiah Thomas said...

well done EP, well done.

And to others on the other thread.

UM lost by 3 on the road and that was only 70% of their best.

And LSU was AT HOME, OSU on the road at Illinois.

El Padrino said...

thanks zeke
how's the east coast treatin' ya?
it's cold today

ToddPacker said...

One more Michigan knock:

I think one big hole in the Michigan argument is the fact that their big-bad defense let up 42 points (on a sloppy field). Take away some turnovers and OSU was going to throw up at least a 50 spot on this so-called vaunted defense. I think if UM lost and at the same time showed that their “D” was truly great (lose 17-14 and hold OSU to low yardage or something) they would have a better chance at a rematch. Giving up 42 points, 160 yards rushing and allowing 6.4 yards per carry on the ground does not help in the rematch argument.

Isiah Thomas said...

2 lucky runs contributed to 14 pts and 100 yds rushing, wouldn't happen in a rematch.

And another TD was with the aid of a penalty helping drive and a slip by a DB in the endzone.

It was a bad game for the D, but a neutral fiel would help.

Isiah Thomas said...

East Coast vs West Coast

Radio : East
Weather : West

The Rev said...

Cyber standing O for ElP today.

Pabst is the best brew of the low end beers. It actually tastes OK in bottles and draft. But, it's knd of like how Anthony Michael Hall was "King of the dipshits" in Sixteen Candles. Pabst is the king of the dipshit beers.

I agree on Chicago's airport. It is awesome. I had a layover there in 2001 and enjoyed a Leinenkugel and hot dog in the airport.

Now come on, if I can come up to New York and root for the Knicks, you can come to Phily and root for my Birds. Just pick an Eagles Cowboys game. It ought to be easy to root against the Boys. But getting tickets would require an investment in StubHub.

Los said...

I think Milwaukee's Best taste better than Pabst, Smokin'.

The Rev said...

JFreak posted it on the last thread, but I thought I'd bring it back.

Michael Richards losing it on stage

But now, the apology is up on Youtube from Letterman, which I don't believe anyone has posted.

Michael Richards on Letterman

It is quite possiblly the most awkward 7 minutes in television history.

The Rev said...

Los... I know you enjoy your Beast.

We should drink some Pabst and Beast tomorrow for our next podcast.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I didn't even know PBR came in bottles. Just like I've never seen Sam Adams in cans.

Martin VanNostrand said...

I've had Beast red, that's some chewy brew.

jugdish said...

The Rev. Jesse Jackson shared a few quiet moments with Eddy Curry, moments after the Knicks' young prodigy absorbed his second pounding in the span of 10 days at the hands of Yao Ming.
-- New York Daily News

Do you think the good Rev will turn this into a race issue? Maybe Yao doesn't like blacks? You know Yao spends his Thanksgivings with Michael Richards.

anonymous said...

curse blogger for bouncing me all morning.. but let me pass out some propers to the resident drug lord, ElP. nice recap, i felt like i was there vomiting and cheering right with ya.

TP, the UM defense thing: yes, they broke down on a couple plays and didnt look as dominant as they were cracked up to be.. but they were also playing the BEST TEAM IN THE COUNTRY. whom THEY hung 39 on. their offense hasnt even been that consistent all year, and yet they still hung 39 points on the #1 team's defense.

youre ragging on them for giving up these plays, but at least they werent giving up big plays to Oregon State or Auburn.

El Padrino said...

i had a Beast Ice, it was 99 cents
24 oz, straight to the dome
it was great

jugdish said...

That Letterman thing was awkward as hell. I heard the audience laughing though, and I really believe what they were laughing at his Kramer. I was just waiting for him to turn into Kramer during that whole thing.

I really think he meant his apology, but how do you apologize for something like that? It just don't cover the act, but it is a start. Who knows if he was drunk or on some kind of drugs when he did that.

El Padrino said...

props iam

anonymous said...

im sorry, but anytime jesse jackson gets involved it's a legit WTF. what a waste of flesh and bodily components.

who's got the worst luck here? we need a curse on him. somebody pick him in the death pool and let's solidify it..

jugdish said...

...or Ball State

jugdish said...

You gotta wonder where Eddy Curry's mindset is seekig advice from Jesse Jackson.

I had heard that he was planning on changing his name to Rev Smokin Jesse...but that could be just a vicious rumor!

The Rev said...

"Do you think the good Rev will turn this into a race issue? Maybe Yao doesn't like blacks?"

I know you were joking... but come on, I can't be that bad.

Jesse Jackson spent time with Eddy Curry? What the hell would that accomplish? I don't think Jesse Jackson knows anything about defending in the low post.

For the record... I posted the Michael Richards not to start a political thing today. Instead, I wanted to share the unbelievable awkwardness of it, which was off the charts. And considering a lot of us are fans of his Kramer character, including me, I thoguht it relevant.

anonymous said...

Kramer: i dont care about the excuses and all this crap that everyone always brings out. here's the deal... it doesnt matter if youre drunk or on drugs...

kinda like the Rep that IM'd little boys. "oh i was drunk". no, you like young boys, face the facts. the only reason people apologize is because theyre embarrassed about people finding out about (insert problem).

if it comes out of your mouth, then you thought it. if you say it, you meant it. it's somewhere inside you. youve just been good at NOT saying it all these years, just not slipping up yet. but if you think it, you say it, and if you say it, you mean it... grow a pair, fess up that youre either totally or slightly racist, and lets move on.

The Rev said...

Rev Smokin Jesse...

OK, that was funny.

El Padrino said...

i agree

kramer is dead to me
he's a racist

anonymous said...

Smokin, i think he meant would Jesse turn it into a race issue.. not you.

(or maybe i read it wrong. too many Rev's).

El Padrino said...

and eddy curry is such a pussy he'll never be any good

sometimes you guys need me to tell it how it is-- it won't matter if the pope sits down with him

jugdish said...

Yeah...I meant Jesse Jackson when I said the good Rev, but I messed up. Steve, you're the good Rev, so I'll refer to Jackson as the bad Rev from now on. He is the ying to your yang. Just don't touch his ying.

Kramer is not dead to me, but Michael Richards could very well be.

El Padrino said...

hour and a half before Jeter gets his 1st MVP

we can fight it all we want but it's happening

Spaceman Spiff said...

"According to a family friend, Britney Spears is "seriously thinking about" giving away a digitally re-mastered copy of her sex tape for free so Kevin Federline can't make any money off of it."

her spite knows no bounds

anonymous said...

teach him britney!! you show him!!

The Rev said...

It's been my experience that the most racist people I have ever met, always started their comments with "I'm not racist, but..."

My official opinion on Michael Richards... he's an idiot for not knowing how to handle a heckler on a stand up comedy stage. If you don't know how to handle that, you have no business being on stage. He's got some obvious rage and racist views which slipped out that night. His apology had a genuine feel to it at least. I haven't ruled out that the apology was or was not career motivated. I'm sure that a significant part of it was.

We have bigger problems in America than Kramer saying the N-word.

The Rev said...

Anytime I see the words "good Rev" here, I assume it's me.

I think this Rev thing is going to my head.

anonymous said...

throwing a cock block on his money, and bettering mankind as a whole. solving world problems by giving us all a handout.

she's the new generation's Bono.

El Padrino said...

you go girl!!!

jugdish said...

I think he meant his apology too. I don't think he can save his career after that, and you're right, he has no business being in stand up if he can't handle a heckler. I'm really surprised he didn't get his ass kicked on stage that night.

jugdish said...

I thought that was why you went to New York Rev...to have a sit down with Eddie Curry.

anonymous said...

The Rev said...

Kramer as a character is a brilliant character, and should always be judged seperately from Michael Richards the human. I think we can make that distinction. Just like how I can still appreciate Lethal Weapon movies despite the fact that Mel Gibson is a moron.

Michael Richards himself, however, has just been exposed as a one trick pony. He seems to be better on stage when he has complete control over what happens, just like an actor. But once that control slips out of his hands, he can't handle it. And it resulted in him resorting to racial epithets to gain back that control.

Racist, yes. But I think he's more of a control freak than anything. And he needs everything to be pre-planned and going his way in order to be funny.

anonymous said...

so youre telling me that one person doesnt like another person and based their hatred off of stereotypes which said culture even helps to perpetuate in their entertainment!? please someone, stop the presses!!

temwr said...

It is not too late for the ABJ campaign to succeed.

temwr said...

And why did they cut the scene for the Kramer thing? I want to hear what the white guy said to try to calm the situation down.

The Rev said...

Me having a sit down with Eddy Curry would go like this...

Eddy Curry - "I don't understand why people boo me when I play in MSG."

Me - "I'll go out on a limb here, but maybe it's because you suck."

anonymous said...

i think the bigger story is not that he's racist, but like whats been mentioned.. he couldnt handle the heckler. seriously, how do u not have SOME sort of material??

my buddy is in standup/improv, and even when he was simply doing friendly open mic stuff, he still had anti-heckler stuff just incase.

pinch something from Jerry, he's gotta have a bunch. really.. a "yo momma" joke wouldve been better than a racist/cursing rant.

temwr said...

I also want to hear what the next comedian had to say. Does the next guy pretend that the whole thing didn't happen? Does he make fun of racist Kramer?? I need to know these things.

Spaceman Spiff said...

there was probly no next comedian, i would think that kramer would be the headliner

El Padrino said...

"someone put a cock in that guy's mouth"

is a great heckler response

El Padrino said...

Paul Rodriguez was also top billing :

and he said "the crowd expected Kramer but got Mark Fuhrman"

that was in the NY Daily News

The Rev said...

Was there a next comedian? I didn't realize someone had to follow that. I thought maybe Richards was the headliner.

Things like handling hecklers are what keeps me from giving stand up comedy more of a try. I've done it for about 5 minutes at a time and got laughs. But I don't have any anti-heckler stuff written. And I know you need that.

Qutie honestly, stand up is the mst difficult thing to do in entertainment. As much as I love it, it intimidates me.

El Padrino said...

i dont know if Rodriguez followed or was before but that was a quote from him at some point, maybe he was interviewed after

all i know is he's lucky he wasnt in ny laugh factory or carolines because who ever he was calling out like that would have seriously fucked him up

Isiah Thomas said...

I thought turkey on whole wheat was the only thing that intimidated Rev. That or a size 7 hat.

anonymous said...

hey eddy curry, go have a heart attack.

anonymous said...

(or do we call them murmurs now?)

Isiah Thomas said...

it looks like the NES Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee has a numchuck attachment. Sweet.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

What a dumbass.

And how shitty is his career that he has to do stand up comedy somewhere like that. I would think that he made a lot of money on Seinfeld, and not have to work. Much less at places where the crowd is close enough to Heckle you.

temwr said...

I feel bad for Paul, half the crowd left before he got to perform...they probably all demanded their money back too (if they were smart, I am sure they could have gotten it back)

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

"...that or a size 7 hat"


that's pretty damn funny.

temwr said...

Note, I only feel bad if he had to follow the act. Not if he went on beforehand.

jugdish said...

There is no way Michael Richards can do anything else after Seinfeld. He is totally typecast as Kramer forever. Even watching his apology I couldn't get Kramer out of my mind. His mannerisms during that reminded me of when Kramer was talking to Crazy Joe Davola when he was dressed up as a clown.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

How close are Jerry and Kramer do ya think? Could we look forward to seeing a comedy tour with both of them? You know what would be cool, those two and Chris rock.

Then you'd have the whitest man in America, the racist, and the Brotha`.

That could fun.

temwr said...

The only thing that could make that comedy tour better is throwing in someone like Jeff Foxworthy, or Larry the Cable Guy.

Kramer, Seinfeld, Rock, Cable Guy.

jugdish said...

You could add George Carlin to that, he hates everyone.

anonymous said...

and then add in the whitest black man in america (in your dook picture), and we're all set..

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

no dobut, i'd watch it, hell...i'd follow them around country like a Deadhead or Parothead.

temwr said...

and some Lebanese guy was assassinated today...

anonymous said...

is the guy that played Archie dead already?

jugdish said...

How about Michael Richard's hosting the BET Awards next year?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

whitest black dude in America...yea, and he's probably from NJ too

anonymous said...

let's have Bill Cosby join the group too, so we can include a whitey that hate blacks, but also have a black man that hates blacks.

the espn full circle...

anonymous said...

there's a high probability he's from san diego or like oregon.

Spaceman Spiff said...

kamer doesnt have to work, syndication takes care of money, he probably just gets bored

temwr said...

Goldie Hawn is 61...wow.

The Rev said...

"I thought turkey on whole wheat was the only thing that intimidated Rev. That or a size 7 hat."

Size 7 hat... damn, that would hurt.

jugdish said...

I thought he worked at the bagel shop.

The Rev said...

Right after he gave the "I'm not a racist" comment, and started getting more agitated, he started using his hands more, and I totally went "Man, he's being Kramer now".

THE CHAMP. said...

have you seen the pictures of the lebanese dude's car? that dude got lit up.

temwr said...

That little guy blocking Yao was pretty damn cool.

El Padrino said...

fucking Nate Robinson, he's a little fearless bastard who can ball, that's fo sho

temwr said...

Yeah they fired at least 20 rounds into his window.

My question is, why was he driving himself if he was so important?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

-Nate Robinson

the most impresive part of the video, is watching how high he jumps. Watch and pay attention to how high his feet get of the floor, it's sick.

temwr said...

It is also impressive how much Yao cries after Nate's elbow catches Yao's eye/head...on the way down. I'd need a ladder just to get my fucking elbow up there, let alone elbow Yao in the eye on my way down.

anonymous said...

bryan.. that was an s-load of bullet holes.

see ya.

anonymous said...

Nate hung his sack on Yao, and that trancends any language barrier, ever.

The Rev said...

Nate facing Yao

anonymous said...

who else thinks the coaches looked good wearing suits on the sidelines? i for one, having never seen the ol' ball coaches that DID do it, think its cool.

you make fucking MILLIONS per year. you cant throw on a tie or something nice looking (to make u stand out from the other 50 coaches they have)? props to Tressel for always dressing the part too.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Nice move by Yao acting like he caught a finger in the eye on the play.

anonymous said...

"aaaaaaah, my ankle!!!"

The Rev said...

Not every coach did the suit thing.

It would have been funny to see Andy Reid in the suit, or Bill Belichick. They would have looked as uncomfortable as a 10 year old in a tux at a wedding.

anonymous said...

yeah there were only a few coaches that did it. i think the entire teams dressed up for the MNF game, from what i saw on the intros. or at least most of the millionaires with enormous disposable income did.

Spaceman Spiff said...

ABJ! morneau wins!

Spaceman Spiff said...

its official

whocares said...

zeke,

Are you really vactioning with the family or did you just need some time off of work to come up with new excuses for Michigan every hour?

So far we have:

-They only played at 70%
-The Field Sucked
-Those two 50+ yard runs were "lucky"
-They would do better on a neutral field
-DB fell down in the endzone
-Schembechler died


Did I miss any? Or do we just have to wait another hour for the next barrage of lame excuses?

I'm guessing the NFL will be selling those ties. That would be the only way they would allow that to happen.

Yet Jeter still gets to bang Jessica Biel.

my personel fav. is " they only played 70%"


jeter losing the MVP is awesome...it's almost as good as when manning lost the heisman

temwr said...

yeah minnesota guy!

anonymous said...

michigan lost to a better team. true, they didnt play as good as they should have, but every team, every game can say that.

UM lost because OSU was better prepared, and UM had some questionable play calling, but overall OSU is a better team.

however, i still believe theyre the best competition available for OSU. but at this point, i would love to see UF step in the ring.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Jessica Biel or the AL MVP...no contest man, you can only look at an MVP award.

But you can look at Jessica and so so very much more.

Plus bragging rights, if he would have won, do you think he'd go drinking with buddies talking about how much fun the MVP award is....i think not.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Would you rather have this or this

El Padrino said...

those suits Nolan and Del Rio were wearing were Reebok suits.

anonymous said...

reebok making suits is not right.

El Padrino said...

lately this season (i know it's early) but I've been watching Knick games about 8 minutes into the first quarter only...cuz the subs are so much better than the starters.

and i feel for Starbury, i love that fool, but he's playin like dogshit

whocares said...

Del Rio's suit last night looked about three sizes too big. Cant he afford a tailor?

He looked like Tom Hanks character at the end of BIG, when he shrinks back to the 12 year old in the grown up suit.

El Padrino said...

dan reeves was the last coach to rock the tie...

i like that
it's old school

El Padrino said...

better than fucking belichek walking around with a gray blanket over his head

El Padrino said...

or the polo option hans Parcells
dude, i know your 60 but put on a fucking ginny-t under that mofo

man-breasts = not cool

that goes for you too, Mangini

ToddPacker said...

i think ditka rocked the tie under the bears sweater, also

JFreak said...

can we get an 'overrated' chant going on for michigan?

The Rev said...

Reebok made the suits, eh? So where was the logo?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Where has TheJayWhite been?


He must have found a nice guy and settled down.

temwr said...

DJ with Beil makes me sick. Especially when we all know he is going to end up marrying ARod in 2014 when gay marriage is legalized across the nation.

She should just end up with some director or producer that I have never heard of and have no opinion one way or the other about. That would make me feel better.

El Padrino said...

Reebok suits

No logo on the suit i guess rev

temwr said...

If you lose by 3 points at the #1's place, then you need to be included in the discussion for who gets to play #1 in the BCS TG. I don't care what penalties there were, how bad the field was, how many points your vaunted D gave up, how gay Jeter is, none of that matters, you lost by 3 AT #1, you earned the right to be in the discussion.

So, it's either UM, USC (if they win out), UF/Ark (whichever one wins out, if either do), or ND.

ND got smoked by UM so I am throwing them out based solely on that loss (actually this is the same reason Wisc didn't even make the converstation). Ark got smoked by USC so they are gone too (I don't care if it was week 1). You can't get smoked in any game and then play for the NT this year. You can lose, but it has to be close.

So that leaves, USC, FL, UM. Assuming USC and FL win out. If that happens then I could give two shits less which one plays. As long as it is one of those three then I am happy enough. If I am forced to choose and all of them have won out I am going to choose USC.

El Padrino said...

good job tem

Martin VanNostrand said...

tem be dropping science on us. Excellent breakdown. Not much to argue against there.

Spaceman Spiff said...

reebok also made the "dress" shoes to match the suit, which did have logos on them

ToddPacker said...

nice recap Tem...i was just about to post a comment very similar to what you said...

anonymous said...

and naturally, the NFL's money grubbing contract was the reason reebok went and made a suit anyways.

moneymoneymoney.

temwr said...

I can't say how happy I am that Jeter did not win MVP.

Now I can go back to being pissed that he won the gold glove even though there were at least 3 shortstops who should have won it over him.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Forgot to give props to El P for giving a shout out to Dorchester. Thats a rough part of town. They don't get much love.

El Padrino said...

who's riding toledo with me tonight?

El Padrino said...

noted Martin

El Padrino said...

i wish gradowski was still there, then i'd take em -6

temwr said...

Oh and to date I think El Pad is 2 for 2 on his NBA locks.

Keep up the good work.

El Padrino said...

i will tem

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

We need wallpapers available for people to put on the old PC. some LoV branded shit. It would be niiice

temwr said...

Robert Altman died. We are going to have to start this celebrity death league soon before they all die.

Martin VanNostrand said...

There has to be a lock on a Jazz game soon. Those fools are 11-1 I think? Odds are raising against them.

temwr said...

2006 salaries:
$385,000 -Morneau
$355,000 -Howard

El Padrino said...

martin i called their only loss
had them when the nets beat them

temwr said...

11-1....someone should check them for poop hands.

Martin VanNostrand said...

The Nets that's right I remember the call. It looks as if they are due again.

ToddPacker said...

i was playing PS2 2006 NHL against my son last night and he scored a goal from behind the net...it looked like it went through the friggin net...anyway after the goal I dropped a "poop hands" comment on him...he laughed only because he heard the word poop...the moral to the story is that the LOV catch phrases are starting to pop out in my everyday discussions…anyone else experiencing this phenomenon

temwr said...

Poop hands for sure.

temwr said...

I say poop hands in every day talk now.

I also find myself using far more Anchorman references than before.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

poop hands is there for me.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Poop hands, ball dipped, and douche bag have entered daily vocabulary with me.

ToddPacker said...

i find myself using "fo reelz" and "fo sho" quite a bit....anchor man stuff was always a staple for me

ToddPacker said...

Good one MV

i forgot all about balldip, i use that a lot

The Rev said...

I don't know what to say to the usage of poop hands outside of this forum.

It's rather shocking to me.

jugdish said...

Do you use the term "ball dip" daily, or are you distributing ball dips daily? I need to know these things.

I use the poop hands term more now...but movie quoting is something I've always done...especially anything Will Ferrell.

ToddPacker said...

I'm not sure if I read this here or heard it somewhere else, but I'm using it quite a bit lately..."he/she puts the ouche in douche"..i like it

Martin VanNostrand said...

Poop hands will make it to Sports Center one day. Lebron will make some crazy circus shot and Stu Scott will say "Poop hands! Bron Bron show us those mits bra. Ain't no WAY that shot's fallin' without a little extra sumthin on the palm"

Martin VanNostrand said...

"he/she puts the ouche in douche"

I don't remember seeing that here but that phrase is GOLD.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i appreciate the EP nba locks as well.

ebntx said...

has to be a major wtf. these people look after our kids?

wtf!

anonymous said...

file that wtf in the "how to lose your teaching license forever" pile, please.

Spaceman Spiff said...

i got the WTF of the day locked up tomorrow

JFreak said...

Last five minutes of "The Play" game

Isiah Thomas said...

all I'll say is that if your team played the #1 team on the road and lost by 3 I bet you'd be saying the same thing I said.

Shit all you FLA fans think you're the team to beat just bc you play in the overrated SEC.

Isiah Thomas said...

did anyone see Stu Scott during halftime yesterday? Dood's lazy eye was out of control.

Keith S said...

Just a quick comment about those who think Wisconsin deserves a BCS bid, with their 11-1 record. They only played one decent team this year, Michigan, and they lost. The Big T-elev-en was down this year, and their non-conference schedule consisted of Western Illinois, Bowling Green, & Buffalo. Take your Capital One bowl bid, Badger fans, and be happy you didn't have to play more than one top-30 team.

Isiah Thomas said...

Dook is playing 3 unathletic white dudes at once (this includes McRoberts). Won't win many big ball games with that.

Also, any team that is quick and has a fast PG will kill Dook.

jugdish said...

This is not a WTF, but this is one of the funniest things I have heard in awhile. Terrell Owens has a childrens book out called "Little T Learns How to Share".

JFreak said...

Hello jugdish...meet 2 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago...meet jugdish.


And El P, you said you wanted to see Manning at some point. The Colts are building a new stadium that's opening in '08. The RCA Dome is nice, but it sure ain't worth a trip from NYC. The new stadium looks pretty sweet.

ebntx said...

that is pretty nice jfreak. what is the seating capacity? it looks ginormous.

Isiah Thomas said...

GOOOOOOOOD MORNING

ToddPacker said...

"all you FLA fans think you're the team to beat just bc you play in the overrated SEC"

i guess that's directed at me...i never said forida is the team to beat....i'm not even sure if they are going to win out....FSU, as bad as they are, will be up for the game this week (plus it's in Tall.) and ARK will be tough...I think that if USC wins out they should play OSU...if USC loses and UF wins out i think UF should play OSU...and if UF and USC both lose than it's UM...ND out bc they lost to UM and ARK is out bc they lost to USC...

ToddPacker said...

what dookie pic will steve be using today?

temwr said...

Marquette is tough. Duke is a quality (read top 30 for sure, probably better than that but we can all agree top 30) team and that win showed me something.

"I think that if USC wins out they should play OSU...if USC loses and UF wins out i think UF should play OSU...and if UF and USC both lose than it's UM."

I concur, motion carries. Write it in ink.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm still bitter they gave up 42.

temwr said...

But they put up 39

whocares said...

Tell them next time to give, I dont know, maybe 80% and they could probably win.

anonymous said...

DOOK DOOK DOOK DOOK DUKE DUKE DUKE DUKE

should we get a second chant of overrated going for the cameron crazies as well?

temwr said...

I heard OSU only gave 69.693245%
