Early Super Bowl thoughts...

I figured I'd just throw my SB XLI thoughts out there early. I'll leave the true handicapping to ElPadrino for the Friday before the game. These are just my early observations.

There's one thing that occured to me while watching the games on Sunday and especially in looking at the stats after the fact. The media is trying to make the 85 Bears defense comparison to the current Bears defensive unit. I guess that was to be expected.

This current Bears defensive unit is a great one and certainly a force. But comparing them to 85 is a little harsh to me. And I'll tell you why.

This is purely hypothetical. But as much as the Bears defense dominated the game this past Sunday, do you think the 85 Bears would have let Drew Brees throw for over 350 yards in Soldier Field in an NFC Championship game in the cold? My guess is no.

This defense is stronger against the run than the pass. We know this. They're not bad against the pass. In passing yardage, they were 6th in the NFC and 11th in the NFL. They're not a bad unit. They tend to get a lot of INT's which makes them a big play passing defense and you have to respect that.

But they are a little susceptible to giving up yards against a good QB if the NFC Championship game is any barometer. And they need INT's to succeed which might be tough if the opposing QB tends not to throw them.

Peyton Manning in cold conditions at Soldier's Field probably struggles a little. Peyton Manning in Miami on a nice night, well that's his wheelhouse right there. Peyton in 2006 threw less INT's than any year of his career with only 9. Granted he threw his share of them in the postseason, but maybe you chalk that up to one bad day against the Ravens.

I find it funny that the two teams I probably underestimated the most in my original NFL preview months ago were the Bears and the Colts. I tried to go against the grain and find reasons that they wouldn't go to the playoffs since I knew they were popular picks. I found what I thought were logical reasons for both. Both teams do have their flaws that would keep other teams out of the postseason. And in the Colts case, they had a different flaw than the one I picked. But great teams overcome their own flaws in today's game, and they both did that. I give them credit.

Now, I believe that Peyton Manning is going to overcome his biggest flaw over the years, and that is winning the big game. He already did last week. Now he can really make that flaw history. You win a Super Bowl, you remove that tag forever. Ask Donovan McNabb what it is like to finally get to the big dance after several tries and lose it. I know Peyton doesn't want that.

I've never been a huge Peyton fan. But last week he earned my respect. He came back from seemingly insurmountable odds against a team that tends to put away games like that. And I have a feeling the conditions are going to be ripe for him to succeed on the biggest stage.

The Bears will give him a fight. Probably more of a fight than a tired New England defense did. I expect them to. Peyton needs to find his opportunities and exploit them because they will be few. But I think there will be opportunities.

I could be wrong. As I've proven already, I've been wrong before.

Here's a few extra thoughts...

- I'd like to thank Bill Parcells for throwing the Cowboys into more disarray right before teams that aren't in the playoffs start preparing for the draft. While guys like Andy Reid get to go to the Senior Bowl and start their work for the draft, the Cowboys have to find a coach. They will be behind the 8 ball a little.

TO shot his mouth off yesterday about Parcells. No need to repeat because I'm sure you all know it by now.

It's so nice to see it happen to them instead of us this year.

- ElPadrino... why didn't you think of this?

As someone who managed to get into the Phillies locker room a couple of years ago with a legitimate press pass, I know how the kid feels. I was cool on the outside, but on the inside I was like "Damn, how did I get in here?" I wanted to go right over to Bobby Abreu and ask him to sign a ball. But you don't do that when you have a pass.

All the kid had to do was act cool, and he gets away with it. That's what is amazing. But he blew it.

At least he has a good story to tell.

- Speaking of the NL East...

Jimmy Rollins is calling it already!

That link was only for ElPadrino. 2007 is gonna be fun in the NL East!

That's all I got. HIBACHI!

POOP

Isiah Thomas said...

meiz - great way to get these comments going.

Isiah Thomas said...

If Reggie Wayne doesn't play like a bitch like he did last game, him and Marvin could go wild.

And I get the Colts run d isn't spectacular, but if the Bears run all over the Colts and it turns into a shootout the Colts will win by 20.

Isiah Thomas said...

and if the Colts win I'll lose all respect for Peyton if he doesn't tell all his haters to fuck off.

Isiah Thomas said...

enough with the "aw shucks I don't pay attention to it" angle.

I'm talking double birds looking into the camera screaming "fuck you bitches", maybe even rip the mic out of the announcers hand and just start yelling into the camera.

The Rev said...

If Peyton suddenly goes Rowdy Roddy Piper on everyone's ass into the camera, I will enjoy that!

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD ALL THE ANSWERS... I CHANGED THE QUESTIONS!

The Rev said...

The Bears can't win a shootout. No question.

The Rev said...

Reggie Wayne does need to step up.

Make a play, son!

The Rev said...

Back to back Z's to get it going!

The Rev said...

I turned off the State of the Union address in disgust at 9:30pm.

And I wound up missing Dikembe Mutombo's appearance at the address.

Damn!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I work with a guy who is also a long-time friend of mine . He's 25 years old, married and on a daily basis, he DVRs SABRINA THE TEENAGE FUCKING WITCH!

I want to kill him.

Isiah Thomas said...

yeah Meiz punch that guy completely out of the blue then when he ax's why tell him you don't DVR that Sabrina show.

The Rev said...

Mr Mutombo visits Washington

Isiah Thomas said...

Suns/Wiz trumped the SOU address for me. I got it on DVR, might watch it.

I had it on the PIP to start but turned it off completely. I hope Nancy Pelosi chokes and dies on the next dick she sucks however.

Martin VanNostrand said...

DVR Sabrina = punch in the mouth with a roll of quarters and a nut stomp. He has to know this is a valid trade off and expect it. If he is willing to take that once a day I got no problem with him watching it.

The Rev said...

Punch will a roll of quarters and a nut stomp is good.

Or should we say a stomp in the fleshy patch where his nuts used to be.

The Rev said...

The State of the Union address made me yell obscenities at the president's face on the screen.

Which means Zeke ought to enjoy it very much.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I don't think he'd be able to take even a single beating.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd love to make more political comments but will refrain. I'm satisfied with my one Pelosi jab.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Unless his watching Sabrina results in a making of the beast with two backs everytime that might be acceptable as well.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

He also DVR's "Boy Meets World", "Step By Step". He stopped talking when I started berating him. I just kept getting meaner and meaner.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I called him a child. that one hurt his feelings.

The Rev said...

I will refrain from political comments too.

I got a million of them right now though.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Martin VanNostrand said...

Never even heard of Step by Step. Boy Meets World was ok. I let that pass if your other options are ice skating or gay porn. But don't DVR it. Just happen to land on a re-run is ok but don't plan to watch.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

You're a true pro, steve.

The Rev said...

I think we scared Bruce Nolan away.

The Rev said...

There's something wrong when you DVR a rerun of anything.

Reruns are meant to be stumbled upon and watched, not planned.

Especially the Sabrina thing. I might watch just to see how Melissa Joan Hart looked for 5 minutes (I thought she was hot). But the day I watch an entire rerun of that show is the day I volunteer my balls for the meat grinder.

The Rev said...

If anyone ever attempted to get the stats on the entire history of LOV, they would get LOV member of the year.

The Rev said...

Did we determine that Scarlet Z's are officially useless?

The Rev said...

This will make great bathroom reading today

This might be good for two poops.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Society just wants us to think they're useless Rev.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Last FM is having an off day for me today.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Is tem still at his seminar?

Martin VanNostrand said...

Steve you got wc on there twice and left off Kodiac

Martin VanNostrand said...

Into the Z relm

Martin VanNostrand said...

Mound lept out of the shadows to throw in a couple of comments too. Even though we can't see him, his mark has been left and his presence can still be felt in the northern wind.

Spaceman Spiff said...

wheres my stats

The Rev said...

OK... Steve has some fixing to do.

It was a valiant attempt though.

Isiah Thomas said...

As a non-MLB fan I'll say its still way to early to GAF about baseball.

Isiah Thomas said...

steve when you try to rip off the master you get burnt. Nice try though.

mound of venus said...

and where are my stats? dont forget i am one of the originals. a banned original. but an original nonetheless.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Zeke's gettin' me excited about baseball

mound of venus said...

and martin, your words are duly noted. you will be favored by the northern winds in the coming months.

Isiah Thomas said...

Almost a booby shot of Jessi Simpson

kinda nsfw but sfw at the same time

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Now that's a tittie.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Nice Half Baked reference from Meiz!

Martin VanNostrand said...

How? was this Chris Kattan or something?

Spaceman Spiff said...

dan marino must be rooting for the bears in the bowl

Martin VanNostrand said...

Old School afternoon

sorry it's youtube

Martin VanNostrand said...

agreed Spiff. Marino has to be thinking "here's a guy in Peton Manning that will break all my passing records. If he can do that and not win a Super Bowl then he replaces me at the top of the couldn't get it done list. Maybe I'll have LT send hookers to his room the night before."

The Rev said...

It's been a long time in Philly since we said this, but we can't wait for baseball season this year.

Isiah Thomas said...

what would really be catastrophic in Philly would be if one of their teams won a championship.

What would that do to their rep and woe-is-us attitude?

El Padrino said...

Jimmy Rollins is delirious, he's not even the best shortstop in the NL east

i was in a horrifying meeting for the past two hours

i am highly agitated

The Rev said...

One less worry for the Dems in 08

Can't say I am unhappy about this.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

Stats-

sorry SS, your on there the program just didn't pick it up, if I have WC twice, one of them may be you.

I could run it over night and probably get the years stats, but I would imagine they would be pretty close to those.

The Rev said...

What would that do to their rep and woe-is-us attitude?

It would move permanently to Cleveland.

The Rev said...

"Jimmy Rollins is delirious, he's not even the best shortstop in the NL east"

He doesn't have to be. But he's damn close.

The Rev said...

We don't need the best shortstop in the NL East.

We will settle for the best starting rotation and the best offensive production.

Isiah Thomas said...

It would move permanently to Cleveland.


That's pretty good rev.

Isiah Thomas said...

you can't care about baseball until august at the very least.

The Rev said...

Cleveland took the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame away from Philly. They can have our rep too.

The Rev said...

Starting next month, I am going to care heavily about baseball.

El Padrino said...

fucking pissed
i wanna stomp on someone's neck

Isiah Thomas said...

regular season MLB might be the most boring sport to watch on tv. In person I like it. On tv though....zzzzzzzzzzzzz city.

JFreak said...

MV, you use last.fm too?

Isiah Thomas said...

EP - cus out the next person who you encounter.

El Padrino said...

best starting rotation?

try south florida

mets are the team to beat, everyone knows that

ToddPacker said...

getting slammed with tps today...

nice post rev

good first effort at the LOV stats, steve

rev, rollins needs to get off the pipe...Mets will own the east for the next couple of years...the only thing the phils are playing for is the WC spot...it's never too early for baseball talk

El Padrino said...

good call (spiff) on marino
he's acting the opposite way on inside nfl though

El Padrino said...

i'm going bitchslap the gollum

The Rev said...

"Mets will own the east for the next couple of years...the only thing the phils are playing for is the WC spot..."

I will mark those words and see if you are correct this coming October.

I wouldn't be so sure about that.

El Padrino said...

sports guy put some crap out about pistol pete

magazine article so stay away

Isiah Thomas said...

I heard a toilet flushing sound when I clicked on SG's latest article.

Isiah Thomas said...

and haven't they already made at least one tv movie about PP? And I saw a bio/documentary on him during March Madness last season.

Eat a dick Bill.

El Padrino said...

i care about pistol pete about as much as i care about the problems aclcohol can cause my liver

in short that means i dont give a fuck

ToddPacker said...

"I will mark those words and see if you are correct this coming October."

October, the Phils will be long gone by October....go ahead and make that mark in mid-September that's when the Mets will be clinching the East...

whocares said...

Has anyone seen the clip of Marino losing his shit on the set of Inside the NFL? It's prally old, but I just saw it like two weeks ago.

I would link to it, but Nazis wont let me access YouTube. Damn Nazis with their baggy clothes and their Rock N Roll music.

Isiah Thomas said...

TP don't get the good rev fired up, he's liable to either a heart attack or 10 scroll response or a 10 scroll response then heart attack. Tread lightly here.

El Padrino said...

some btich is advertising shit in my comments section on my blog

whocares said...

And by the way, if we're talking NL East you cant count out the Braves. As much as Philly and Mets fans would like to, you just cant. It's mathematically impossible. It's science!!

ToddPacker said...

are you talking about the clip with boomer...i think that was from CBS

ToddPacker said...

wc

i think (hope) the braves run is officially over

ToddPacker said...

i know someone already mentioned this, but I hope we get a solid LOV Basball fastasy league going

ToddPacker said...

speaking of MLB any of you non-Direct TV guys order the MLB package....i think this year it's only available on DTV...they are giving the cable companies the NFL treatment...either way i don't care since i have DTV

ToddPacker said...

SZ complete, now it's back to the tps reports

The Rev said...

Fuck da Braves!

whocares said...

tp,

I dont think the run ends until Cox's ass is dead. But this is coming from a semi big Braves fan...

The Rev said...

Marino losing his shit

It's from 2000. It's not the Boomer incident. Really funny too.

Marino always struck me as a jackass. I never liked him.

ToddPacker said...

i think the braves pitching staff missed Leo Mazzone last year...he might have been just as important as Cox

ToddPacker said...

im with ya Rev...i always hated marino...i love pointing out to marino fans that he never won the super bowl....whatever their comeback is i just say "NEVER won a super bowl"

ToddPacker said...

i know winning a super bowl isn't what makes someone a great QB(trent dilfer), but it's fun to say that to marino fans anyway

Beth82678 said...

Coming from an admitted big Braves fan, I think the Braves will surprise some people this year. They won't make the playoffs but I bet they'll hang tough longer than most expect and (hopefully) put a little fear for awhile into Mets and Phillies fans.

ToddPacker said...

"Coming from an admitted big Braves fan"


So i guess beth likes Cox...sorry i coundn't resist

The Rev said...

So the best you're hoping for is to put a scare into the top teams with the Braves, eh?

The Braves are dismissed!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

DirecTV has the MLB package for the next 7 fucking years.

Beth82678 said...

Hey, after FOURTEEN YEARS it's time to give the rest of the division a couple years. It sure was fun during those FOURTEEN YEARS though hearing for so many of them how the Mets or Phillies were so much more talented than the Braves yet would choke year after year. :-)

Beth82678 said...

Yeah, TP that was definitely a setup for you!

whocares said...

Yeah, Mazzone leaving hurt them, and McDowell looked clueless at times, but they've still got some talent.

I'm still not real sure I like them getting rid of LaRoche.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Besides, the Brew Crew's gonna win the East, West, and central.

whocares said...

Met and Philly fans are just pissed that The Braves dominated the division for so long and most of the fanbase is fair weather at best. I cant argue with that...

Tyler said...

Random drive-by thoughts:

A. Screw Blogger. It's been "unavailable" for a long time now.

B. What's the proper amount of time to wait before you punch the person in front of you in the neck because they're taking way too long to order coffee? Three minutes? Four minutes? Or do you count the amount of drinks they ask the dreaded "what does that taste like" question? If so, what's the limit on that, two or three times? I need to know for next time this happens.

C. I'm not gonna comment on the State of the Union thing, because I'm pretty liberal like the Rev, but I would seriously watch it if the Prez came out like Ray Lewis does at a home game. They're almost there anyway with the length of their intros. Someone comes out and announces them, then they walk down the aisle but instead of high fiving people they shake their hands. I think I caught the Prez pointing to a few guys. I was running on the treadmill and listening to the iPod, but when he did that, I imagined him saying in a Spicoli voice, "Hey, I know that dude!"

ToddPacker said...

i wouldn't mind seeing the braves return to the dale murphy years...they were terrible back then...14 years and what 1 WC...not too good...the marlins have more WCs in that time span

whocares said...

Somebody accidentally left the Tyler Bat Signal on.

We gotta remember to turn that thing off after the basketball discussions.

whocares said...

But to answer your question, they can only ask "what does that taste like" once. After that they're on thin ice.

whocares said...

Seriously, you go in with an order, see something that looks good, and go "what does that taste like". Then you can either order it, or go back to your original order. Dont ask about the whole menu.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

This has been the slowest day of my life, it's been 4:00 for the last 5 hours!!!!!

So I tune back into LOV to find what? Baseball talk!!! Uhgggg!!!!!


Tyler, after the first 2 minutes, you start clearing throat, and saying things under your breath but so that he can hear you. And if he says something, then you knock that fool out.

ToddPacker said...

nice non-nba drive-by Tyler...

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

"I've got your crappa mochoa chicko RIGHT HERE"

*smack*

whocares said...

TP,

Some (Braves fans) would argue that it is much harder to win the division for 14 years than one World Series. Baseball is a sport based on odds and longevity. The longer the season, the greater the chance of everything averaging out. The shorter the season (or series) the better chance the underdog can win. This season is a perfect example.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

baseballbaseballbaseballbaseballbaseballbaseball
I love it.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

iguana article

"Even if an amputation is deemed necessary, Mozart will still be able to reproduce, because male iguanas have two penises, Balemans added."

whocares said...

Others (non-Braves fans) would argue that sports is really about winning champeenchips, and anything less than that is a failure.


They also make a good point.

El Padrino said...

i could care less that the braves won 14 straight, there was always the wild card

i'm a big fan of mediocracy

El Padrino said...

tyler give that bitch a flat tire next time, then act like it was a mistake

complete satisfaction

El Padrino said...

14 division titles : one championship

losers

ToddPacker said...

wc

yea i know...14 years in a row is impressive...it's just my standard anti-braves argument

El Padrino said...

sorry steve wanna talk duke basketball

*FINGER WAG*

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

ep


LOL,

Go....Duke?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

na, baseball's alright, in the playoffs. but talk about a boooooorrrrreing regular season.

Tyler said...

I love El Pad's flat tire idea. I'm gonna try that out next time.

El Padrino said...

baseball is cool to talk about in the beginning (hot stove, spring trainin) and the playoffs

i admit it's a tad boring on tv during the regular season
but i love it and you can't beat it live

ToddPacker said...

i'm already planning out my sick days for spring training...nothing like throwin down brews at a spring training instead of being at work

El Padrino said...

tyler i do that shit all the time
one time i did it to a women, got too aggressive with it and ripped are pantyhose (around the ankle)

it was hi-larious

she didnt think so obviously

bitch was writing a check though at the drugstore so she got what she deserved

The Rev said...

The fact that the Braves won 14 in a row and only got one WS title out of the deal is an embarassment. I would be ashamed.

And one of those years you choked, 1993, do I have to remind you which team stuck the dagger in?

The Rev said...

Coffee order... 30 seconds max

Anything over 31 seconds deserves a bitch slap.

The Rev said...

The Braves were the doorknob of the 90's and early 2000's.

Everyone got a turn.

A turn kicking their asses in the postseason, that is.

ToddPacker said...

i hate the braves as much as any mets fan could hate them and even though 1 out of 14 blows, the fact that won the division 14 staight years is impressive...although i think a couple of the earlier division titles were from when they were in the NL west

El Padrino said...

like i said, never bothered me
impressive, sure
but if not parlayed into at least a few more league championships then like the kid's name says

whocares

whocares said...

rev,

Are you allowed to comment when your team hasnt been relevent since Darrent Daulton was behind the plate?

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

"Are you allowed to comment when your team hasnt been relevent since Darrent Daulton was behind the plate?"


oh, and the tide turns...Rev, you gotta come back strong on that buddy!!

ToddPacker said...

don't mess with utley and howard

El Padrino said...

pow!!!!!!!!!

Beth82678 said...

I knew it was only a matter of time til you brought up 1993 Rev. But remind me again cause I forgot, during those Braves' 14 division wins and 1 World Series win, how many championships did the Phillies have?

(Can you say Wild Thing?)

El Padrino said...

tonight's knicks/suns game

Suns 256
Knicks 87

whocares said...

"The fact that the Braves won 14 in a row and only got one WS title out of the deal is an embarassment. I would be ashamed."


More ashamed than you should already feel as a Phillies fan? Doubt it.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

bam!!!!!!

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

and things get quite in Phillie...

Isiah Thomas said...

good thoughts tyler. The asshole has prob been to the coffee shop a million times and asks what it tastes like. Fuck that. IT TASTES LIKE FUCKING COFFEE DICKHEAD.

10 seconds per drink order.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

*quiet

damn spell checker

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

i feel a 10 scroller coming....

ToddPacker said...

rev is taking a philly beating...

he need a tyler-like bat-signal when philly is taking abuse... maybe a bagel-signal

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

LOL @ tp

Isiah Thomas said...

observations/questions from my lunch break:

1) Why do people look behind them or look at people when they walk up behind them in line, or when you're pumping gas or driving past someone? Why look? You don't know me, I don't know you. If I need to get your attention I'll throw something at you.

2) Old people working cash registers. Of course the asshole ahead of me is picking up 8 packs of pictures. Once they're done ringing the shit up they ask for the deal in the coupon magazine. Flustered, the old person grabs the mic and goes (in the old person voice) "customer service help to the register". Old people need to be exterminated once they reach 70 or are rendered incapacitated by age 65. Yearly tests will determine status. Also the only other register is manned by a way to happy flamer.

3) Women driving trucks or SUV's. Look bitch I know your ride goes fast. You cut me off again I'm gonna hunt you down, beat you with a tire iron then skull fuck your unconscious corpse.

4) Bums/trashcans. Can I get a ruling on what to do when you want to throw trash into a trash can when a bum is rifling through it? I just threw my trash, drink and all onto the dudes arm. My bad dude but damn have some courtesy.

The Rev said...

"Are you allowed to comment when your team hasnt been relevent since Darrent Daulton was behind the plate?"

Has relevance ever stopped anyone from commenting at LOV yet?

ToddPacker said...

hey rev at least philly has a good hockey team to fall back on, right....oh, never mind

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm not a mlb fan but damn 14 titles and 1 championship? Gotta get more WS's rings than 1.

and the can't sell out playoff games. Time for a timeout braves fans.

Isiah Thomas said...

relevance is subjective. Thus it has no bearing on comments here.

ToddPacker said...

zeke those lunchtime comments were hilarious...

El Padrino said...

answering zeke:

1) paranoid
2) agreed, die estelle getty
3) suv's + women = not cool at all
4) litter

Tyler said...

Zeke - she ended up going with Raspberry Tea too, which is even more annoying because that's quicker/easier to make yourself than coffee. Just buy a whole package of that stuff, and add hot water. Boom, done, over. She is lucky that one of the girls that work there saw me getting steamed in line and started making my drink while I was waiting. By the time I paid it was ready. That's the only thing that saved that girl from getting punched in the neck.

And El Pad - Waiting for someone to write a check at the drug/grocery store is the worst. I think they need to have a Check Line next to the Express Line so all of the old ladies that write checks can go their instead of annoying everyone else.

Isiah Thomas said...

and keep fucking with the good Rev about Philly sports eventually you'll get a post with just

aslfafahsfkjasdfasdf

as he's having a stroke and can't type....

whocares said...

zeke,

I cant answer all of your questions but #1 is pretty obvious. I look at people in the car next to me ,or in line behind me hoping that it's some hot ass chick that I can continue to stare at for the duration of our stay in line, or at the stoplight.

The Rev said...

Relevance doesn't matter. I'm spewing Braves hatred just because I feel like it and it's fun. I have utter contempt and disdain for the Braves.

And I'm the first one to admit my team has sucked the pipe in recent years. I don't need you all to tell me that. I experienced it myself, thank you.

But everyone knows that the Phillies' stock is on the rise now. And the Braves' stock is in decline.

Besides, I'm convinced real Atlanta Braves fans didn't even exist until 1991.

El Padrino said...

i though since debti cards were invented with visa logo there is no reason to even carry a check book

whenever I'm in line and see someone break out the checkbook they immediately get a snarky comment...checking out should take a max of 1 minute from ringing up to payment. Time adjusted for a larger amount of items. No axing about specials or "that rang up as $1.05 instead of a buck, its on sale ya know" comments. Merchandise, scan, payment. Easy concept.

who writes checks at a store still?

Isiah Thomas said...

whocares I feel you on that. I'm always on the lookout for some nice bres-a-sis but damn its annoying.

A couple of years ago, it was raining and I had a huge bag of garbage to throw away, and a bum decided to use my apartment building's dumpster as shelter. He was laying down in the dumpster and when I opened it and dropped my bag in there I heard a thunk and then a "owe, hey, what the hell?". It freaked me out, so I booked it out of the alley. There was a least one full case of empty beer bottles in the bag and it was so heavy that the handles were tearing. I am 98% positive that I hit him in the head with it too.

old people who don't trust that fancy new technology


if you ever see someone under 40 using a checkbook, slap them immediately.

Isiah Thomas said...

didn't mean to interrupt the mlb slapfight, but it was a lunch worth sharing.

And spring training radio commercials are running every 30 seconds out here.

In closing, my only mlb contribution will be :

FUCK THE YANKEES.

Tyler said...

* should have been "ow" not "owe"

Isiah Thomas said...

tyler good work, teach the guy a lesson. Actually in LA bottles are like gold so he prob made 45 cents off your trash.

I had a bum in SB actually refuse a bottle from me one time because it was glass and "too heavy". I was like WTF dude this has got to be worth fitty cent.

A discriminating bum, go figure.

Zeke, I think we can all agree on hating the Yankees.

Beth82678 said...

And Rev, real Braves fans were the only kind that existed before 1991. It's most of the ones who came after that who weren't real.

Tyler said...

Yes, Yankees suck. Unless your boss likes them. Then you've kinda, sorta gotta at least tolerate their existence. Happened to me a couple of bosses ago.

Isiah Thomas said...

"Zeke, I think we can all agree on hating the Yankees. "

Beth...I'm speechless.

The Rev said...

The Rev said...

Beth...

I dare you to name me 5 players from the 1979 Braves without looking it up online.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Re: Bums/Trashcans
I haven't laughed that hard in a loooong time.

The Rev said...

"real Braves fans were the only kind that existed before 1991"

And I hear all 7 of them still get together for weekly meetings and Dungeons and Dragons games.

whocares said...

rev,

I couldnt name anyone from the 79 team (I was born in 79). I didnt become a fan until at least like 85 or 86. Horner, Murphy, Benedict, and my personal favorite Ken Oberfell.

The Rev said...

Checkbooks need to stay at home for rent payments. Other than that they are useless anymore.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

oooh, GOIBEN!

whocares said...

Dont get me wrong though. I'm not a big Braves fan. They just pass the time between spring and football season. Once football season rolls around, I jump directly off the Braves bandwagon. Oddly enough that generally happens to be the same time they are getting eliminated from the playoffs.

Beth82678 said...

Damn Rev, I was 1 year old in '79. But I was at the Cabrera game if that means anything.

The Rev said...

I can name Phillies from before 1972 when I was born.

Real fans know their history.

Beth82678 said...

So knowing about their losing from the time you're alive isn't enough for you Rev?

whocares said...

He wants to rehash the misery his father must've felt being a Phils fan...

Martin VanNostrand said...

Came back form lunch to a TPS and e-mail shiat storm.

JFreak - yeah I dig Last FM. Usually get introduced to some rad bands through it. Not so much today though.

Anyone check out that Old School Afternoon link I posted earlier? High-larry-us stuff.

The Rev said...

I'm willing to bet ElP knows who Tommie Agee, Cleon Jones, and Ron Swoboda are.

El Padrino said...

ok now are talking

She's a ho

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev you're on the edge of Champ Kind territory.

El Padrino said...

i know some mets from before my birf

seaver, harrelson, agee of course
few others

Isiah Thomas said...

isn't Tommie Agee, Arthur Agee's pops from that hoops doc?

The Rev said...

I don't even know if my father was a Phillies fan.

That's another story for another day.

Isiah Thomas said...

*Hoop Dreams

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev - I'll let you know now son, I'm not a Phils fan. Sorry to disappoint.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

That's what I'm talkin' about.

Isiah Thomas said...

link blocky ep

The Rev said...

"Rev - I'll let you know now son, I'm not a Phils fan. Sorry to disappoint."

OK, I laughed at that.

Good one!

Beth82678 said...

Rev there's no doubt in my mind you're a much bigger Phils fan than I am a Braves fan. I'm just trying to point out that doesn't make me less of a Braves fan.

El Padrino said...

too bad zeke

Spaceman Spiff said...

El Padrino said...

Isiah Thomas said...
