New Church Sign with all 5 contirubtors

Martin VanNostrand said...

Blessed be

Martin VanNostrand said...

No one is left out so the no room in the inn thing doesn't work any more. Nice work on the new sizzle.

anonymous said...

pop ya' collars y'all, we be big timin' it now

Jay Scott said...

go duke

ToddPacker said...

the church sign thing is solid...


zeke,

like the meiz i'm swamped at work, big project due 12-20, not much LOV time for me during the day

Jay Scott said...

toddpacker, i move to florida (niceville/valparaiso area) in february. what do i need to know about the place?

ToddPacker said...

jay scott,

i don't know much about that area. It’s way up there in the panhandle. i think it's even a different time zone than the rest of the state. I’m not sure where you live now, but adjusting to the Florida summers takes a while. I know that the Destin/panama city area is going through kind of a boom, lots of new condos/vacation homes. Plus i think it's still pretty crowded around spring break time. I’m guessing you will be somewhere near the Eglin base. You probably can get better info from other military guys about the area. Godd luck with the move.

ToddPacker said...

by the way, wouldn't pope get top billing on the church sign?

thejaywhite said...

I never go to church..NEVER EVER HAVE NEVER WILL

jugdish said...

I'm not surprised...

Martin VanNostrand said...

"Eglin" I'm guessing that's the AF base. I've driven by it several times going to Destin. That's the only military base I'm aware of in the area.

whocares said...

tjw,

Are you allowed to be a Notre Dame football fan and not go to church?

ebntx said...

whocares, it is probably more of a safety concern imposed by the church. they fear the church may go up in flames if the "demon" enters it.

anonymous said...

he might get jealous and try to sit on the priest's lap if he sees little johnny getting a turn.

The Rev said...

Wouldn't Pope get top billing?

Top billing means nothing in our church. We are all equal. It's just that some speak from the pulpit while others speak from the congregation.

He's only a pope because the title fits well with Padrino. It's a P thing.

The only reason I'm top billing is because I did the sign. If anyone else did the sign, they can be top billing.

The Rev said...

We may certainly change the sign at times. I'm sure there are witty things to put on the sign throughout the year.

El Padrino said...

sweet

temwr said...

Catching up at work sucks and I am hungover.

The Rev said...

I suggest that we can put Iam's header to the right of the church sign. Make it the same size, and they would work well next to each other.

El Padrino said...

Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. Lou Holtz!

Isiah Thomas said...

this pic was taken before he had his wooden teeth put in.

Isiah Thomas said...

*teefis

Martin VanNostrand said...

El P - did the kids get paid?

temwr said...

I never knew he coached the Jets.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Steve - that Spuds Mac is killing me. I had a tee with him riding a surf board on it back in 6th grade.

Isiah Thomas said...

Lou Holtz actually coached at my school for a few seasons back in the day.

El Padrino said...

dont know, i'm an alternate
they are still deliberating

i woulda said no

El Padrino said...

tem every coach that has sucked at some point has coached the jets

temwr said...

haha, this is the guy's name who is doing the FF chat at the WWL:

Tristan H. Cockcroft

Martin VanNostrand said...

"every coach that has sucked at some point has coached the jets"

awesome

Martin VanNostrand said...

Jets coaches per Wiki so accuracy could be in question.

temwr said...

I can see it now.

"Mr. and Mr. Cockcroft your table is ready."

"Yes that is Cockcroft...c-o-c-k...-c-r-o-f-t."

The Rev said...

Even scarier Jets picture

anonymous said...

what dimensions should my header thingy be? i dont want to have to scrap something and restart, so any suggestions other than "dont suck"?

anonymous said...

ive gotta drop a load.. there better be a post up when i get back.

otherwise... i'll have to... uh, go take a long walk and try to avoid work that way instead.

anonymous said...

TO hates snitches

El Padrino said...

oh my god rich kotite and neil o'donnell, that pic reeks of suckiness

if they were weed, and they got rolled up in a blunt they'd be the worst blunt ever!

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

mv, yea. I've actually got the bar figure spuds, you guys may not remember, the life size plastic dog that lights up.

I'm thinking it's gotta worth something...someday.

anonymous said...

that pic smells like skunk. in a bad way.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm thinking of taking up smoking just to get another 5-10 extra breaks a day.

The Rev said...

Iam....

I'm thinking whatever the church sign pic dimensions are, should be the dimensions of your header.

The Rev said...

At least for size considerations.

Other than that, don't suck.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Zeke - it works that way around here fo sho. I don't get how that's the only vice corp has no prob with you taking time for. There should gambling breaks, over eating breaks, you get the picture.

whocares said...

I've got the same problem here zeke. The smokers go out about once every hour while I'm stuck here in my office. Occassionally a few of us just go stand out there and talk about sports, or whatever topic of the day.

whocares said...

But let's be honest. Is anyone on here reeeeeeally deprived of break time at work?

Isiah Thomas said...

we have fire extinguisher training this week! and it's "MANDATORY"

just saying give me an extra "official" 5-10 breaks a day.

Martin VanNostrand said...

It's all about principals who.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Zeke - play dumb when it's your turn. just hold the tank and hit the trigger. Let the nozzle go crazy.

Isiah Thomas said...

principalities

Isiah Thomas said...

LOL. That would be great MV. Especially if some DB's I don't like are standing around me.

El Padrino said...

i look at it like this

the more breaks a smoker takes
the quicker the fucker will be dead

El Padrino said...

u know whats funny
when the smokers smoke outside in the cold

they look like crakcheads
shivering and shit
funny

anonymous said...

Rev, have u ever gotten a call from a church (through the ULC)? i think i just got solicited on my cell phone.. someone left a message about being a host family or something? and gifts?

WTF2.5??

Isiah Thomas said...

FH - call back and accept to host some people, then leave the cougher's address

anonymous said...

smokers looking like crackheads... i almost coughed and spit all over myself. i can just picture it.. so true.

anonymous said...

zeke, excellent call.

anonymous said...

i'll grab one of his retarded entertainment mags that he brings in.. i think he rips off the shipping label though (cause he leaves em out on the desk for others).

but try, i shall.

anonymous said...

and the 2nd Q to Rev.. did we even have to put in our #'s on that site? i dont see like a "find a minister" thing on their site.. so im a little lost on how i got contacted.

Isiah Thomas said...

good point EP, further to that,

I love it when a smoker gets a bad cold but refuses to not smoke for a few days to get better.

One bitch here almost killed herself doing shit like that - started hyperventalating, rushed her to the hospital, etc.

Isiah Thomas said...

FH went for 4 in a row, he pulled a zeke.

anonymous said...

yeah, had to put comments on pause... couldnt go for the five-fecta.

Spaceman Spiff said...

SP didnt get tapped on the shoulder by his boss this week

temwr said...

"SP didnt get tapped on the shoulder by his boss this week "

Hopefully they realized that running gag was one of the lamest things ever written by any national columnist. It had to go.

anonymous said...

so people actually read him?

temwr said...

I read SP. It's better than working.

temwr said...

And making fun of him makes me feel better about myself.

Martin VanNostrand said...

No mention of Dice K on here yet today. Not that any body gives a flip about the Red Sox other than Rev and I. I for one am glad they got the deal done. Looks like the rotation could attempt to be solid on paper. The Sega Saturn looked good on paper too though. Dicey is making mad loot. There is an uneasy feeling in a corner of tummy for the long run. He should be great out the gate but the true test is when crews have faced him several times and they start to figure him out. Potential is exciting but that's all it is until it's stepped up or faded away. I hope he lives up to the hype. How's this as part of the deal for him as well?

From dirt dogs via wwl:

"Matsuzaka will get a massage therapist, physical therapist, interpreter and personal assistant, and the Red Sox agreed to provide the pitcher with 80-90 flights over the course of the deal, along with special housing and transportation arrangements and accomodations for his wife"

The Rev said...

I've never been solicited for anything Rev wise.

And I don't remember putting in a phone number.

It might not be related to that.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

LOV dropping the ball today

temwr said...

Indeed

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

guess, i'll have to go read DS blog, at least he's reliable

The Rev said...

This is Freak's day.

temwr said...

by noon you forfeit your day rights

anonymous said...

no post.. thats craptastic. i would throw something up but im trying to do this photo and keep getting cock blocked by work.

sega saturn.. baaaah.
3D0 in the house? let me snag my TurboGraphix 16 and rock some Bonk too.

anonymous said...

and nobody probably cares about hockey but sidney crosby is the shit.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

I move that from this point on, whenever there is no post by noon, the contributor who dropped the ball gets immediate induction into HOJ.

temwr said...

second

temwr said...

Sid the Kid is qualitay.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Aye - unless they have a legit excuse. Freak is in Indy. For all we know he was in the Dunkin Donuts and got beat down by Stephen Jackson for ordering the last managers special.

anonymous said...

or getting emotionally prepared for the Colts' first round bounce. (it's not hate, cause im a fan).

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I have major UPS Store poop hands.

temwr said...

meiz set a record for UPS store something or others.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

No, I'm just the King.

The Rev said...

I'll have to hear Freak's excuse first.

I've been busy all day with work. Not much time to come up with hotness here.

Isiah Thomas said...

freak works those weird ass hours also....

this has been a bs week here, def not up to our standards.....

too much "work" apparently.

f that

Isiah Thomas said...

there's no point for a new post today, we're all ready rolling here.

JFreak said...

Pretty simple excuse.

A. I was sleeping.

B. I'm picking some friends up so they can come home for Christmas break




If that isn't enough... Stephen Jackson shot at me.

Do with me what you will

The Rev said...

Week before the holidays... everyone crams those projects in before the end of the year.

They're doing it here too. I've been meeting with contractors all week.

The Rev said...

The kid works overnights. He's entitled to sleep.

I'll give him a pass.

anonymous said...

new pic post is up.. i'll delete it later, but lemme know what u think of the potential hotness.

Isiah Thomas said...

"freak works those weird ass hours also...." = zeke speak for cut him some slack

temwr said...

During the next couple weeks it will be like this due to hollidays.

I'd say the noon rule goes into effect now anyway, but immediate inclusion into the HOJ be delayed until sometime after the new year rolls around.

The Rev said...

Keep it up there Iam. I need that link for the top of the page. If you delete it, it will not work.

anonymous said...

i'll work on the matching the blues a little better and repost at some point.

temwr said...

Bill Walton everbody:

Jordan, OH: Where do you think Iverson will end up?

Bill Walton: One of the first casualties of deals like this (and there have been a number of them)--if you go back and look at the guys who have career numbers like AI (Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar, Kareem, McAdoo), like the problems we have in Washington and the Middle East, probably the first casualties is the truth. Why would any of these high-stakes gamblers show their hands? Where are the rumors coming from? Agents, Allen Iverson himself, other teams, media outlets that have space to fill. To me, it's sad that AI could not work it out in Philadelphia. I think the fans have spoken in that great city, in that they still want him on their team, as would most squads.



Later on:
Bill Walton: Please note that on this date in NBA history, 31 years ago, Kareem (who was the greatest player I ever played against) grabbed 29 defensive rebound, which is an NBA record. Prior to the 1974 season, all rebounds were tabulated collectively, not separately. while we're on that note of record keeping, congrats to Jason Kidd on surpassing Wilt Chamberlain in triple-doubles. When Wilt played, they did not count blocked shots as a stat!

anonymous said...

so b-b-b-ill.. whats your damn answer??

temwr said...

After 3 more paragraphs he did say that he did not know where Iverson would end up.

So he eventually got to it.

temwr said...

Whole answer:

Bill Walton: One of the first casualties of deals like this (and there have been a number of them)--if you go back and look at the guys who have career numbers like AI (Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar, Kareem, McAdoo), like the problems we have in Washington and the Middle East, probably the first casualties is the truth. Why would any of these high-stakes gamblers show their hands? Where are the rumors coming from? Agents, Allen Iverson himself, other teams, media outlets that have space to fill. To me, it's sad that AI could not work it out in Philadelphia. I think the fans have spoken in that great city, in that they still want him on their team, as would most squads.

Bill Walton: I'm not ruling out him coming back, but you have to realistically assess whether you're mortgaging your long-term future or getting into the entertainment business. Iverson will sell tickets, move merchandise, and will get your team on national TV. You also have the element of teams claiming they can't afford him (the eight teams that wrote the commissioner with a plea for a new revenue-sharing model), or teams positioning themselves for an unfair moniker of the "Greg Oden lottery". Greg Oden has always expressed a desire to play college basketball. To some people, lifestyle is more important than anything else. As we sadly mark the passing of Paul Arizin, the man who modernized the jump shot--never forget that when he was on the Philadelphia Warriors, and they were moved to San Francisco, Paul retired! The guy just loved basketball so much that he played basketball for several more seasons with the Camden Bullets in a semi-pro league!

Bill Walton: Just a quick thank you to Lamar Hunt, while we're mentioning Paul Arizin. Lamar has meant so much to everyone in the world of sports. Lamar was one of the ten original partners in founding the Bulls. It was interesting because Lamar saw Jordan play hundreds of times, but he never met Michael Jordan. There'a always the legendary stories of Lamar Hunt sitting alone in the old Chicago stadium. The world is a lesser place as a result of his and Paul Arizin's loss. But as we flash forward to where Allen Iverson will end up, most everybody is going to want Allen Iverson. He's a winner and a champion, and he adds great value to your entertainment product. Philadelphia finds themselves in a quandary, because Allen Iverson rescued that franchise and carried them for eleven years. Will they dump him to some backwater outpost where he will languish in anonymity for the rest of his career? Or are they going to find a balance between finding a great package--you're never going to get equal value for Allen Iverson, and the only team able to survive in a competitive fashion after trading an all-time great was the Bucks after trading Kareem.

Bill Walton: I have no idea where Allen Iverson will end up, and as we speak right now, I don't think anyone else does either.

temwr said...

and Bill Walton kills the chat.

The Rev said...

Yeah dude!

Way to get to the point, Billy!
