They come in threes

Hmm...bad news, deaths, triplets, they all come in threes. We've had 2 celeb deaths in the past two(ish) days (Beck and Benoit) so we are due for one more. This seems like as a good time as any to start throwing names out there for the third death. Doing this will probably lose me more points with whatever Deity keeps track of good things I do, but I am hoping that, along with everywhere else, the standards to get in to the good afterlife place have been lowered. Anyway, I am going to go out on a limb and say the next death is going to be that snowboarder dude with the orange hair. I don't remember his name, but he is called a tomato or something. That guy is my pick. In a freak skeeball accident. Feel free to make your picks in the comments section. Helmet stickers for the original picks and if someone actually gets it right I will send them some buckeyes (the candy not the poisonous nut) and some Graeters Ice Cream (Oprah's favorite).

Random Side Note 1: I know I am in the minority on this one, but I need to bitch about a common phrase in baseball. You see I have been watching more baseball lately and have come to realize that I can not stand when the announcers say "he just evened the count at 2 and 2." I know 2 equals 2 so they are 'even'. But that's not an even count. 1 strike and you are out and 1 ball and umm the pitcher gets to pitch again. 2-2 is a pitchers count, not a hitters, it is not an even count. Like I said, I know I am in the minority, but a big FUCK YOU goes out to everyone who disagrees with me. And I will not argue about this.

As we all have seen there is a big 4 team trade being kicked around that will send KG to the Lakers. Does this mean that Kobe will take back what he said about wanting traded (again)? I think the obvious answer is yes. On a non random side note, I am still not sure why KG did not want to go to Boston. I mean, damn that basically punches his ticket to the Eastern Conference finals. Is he afraid of Lebron? He'd rather be against the Suns, Spurs and Mavs??? I'd rather go out east and be basically guaranteed a playoff spot than have to pick at the scraps that the Suns, Spurs and Mavs leave behind.

Final Random Side Note: I didn't even try to get a Paris Hilton post jail interview. I should have asked. My bad.


OK I am spent. Have at it bee snatches.

TJW is leaving?

Please say it's true.

Please Please Please Please Please

tem said...

TJW = IDGAF

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

how exactly do u pronounce "noone"?

noon?

nooney/noonie?


i must know(e).

El Padrino said...

well if it was a murder suicide you cant really say he was a warm and gentle guy

El Padrino said...

he cross faced chicken his wife to death, then killed his own kid with a flying head butt

i was going to declare today a LOV national day of mourning but after finding out the details i'd rather not.

carry on my wayward son

ToddPacker said...

major tps day yesterday.... i missed tjw exit?.... noooooooooo

ToddPacker said...

tps is going for a 2 game winning streak today

ToddPacker said...

i never thought about tem's "2-2 even count" thing, but he makes a valid point

ToddPacker said...

next dead celeb:

bob barker.... he can't live without the pir

ToddPacker said...

natty

ToddPacker said...

back to the tps

El Padrino said...

as far as a shot at some ice cream and candy i'm taking Hank Aaron, who will die from a broken heart once that fathead Bonds breaks his sacred record.

tem said...

bob barker is a cheapie pick

tem said...

no helmet sticker, but puts you in line for ice cream.

El Padrino said...

break up the bravesm they scored 4 runs

jauggernaut

Beth said...

So how long before an article about Benoit's death throws out the possibility of a steroid driven rage causing it?

El Padrino said...

it's like when a granparent loses his/her husband, a feww months later and they go

the pain is too much, the sorrow hurts

Adios Hank, you were one classy bastard.

Beth said...

You should've seen the Braves after McCann's homer last night. You'd have thought they'd just clenched the division or something. You can tell things are tense around that clubhouse.

tem said...

that article is already written and being viewed by an editor.

the editor is just waiting until noon or something to post it.

tem said...

or Hank might kill Barry before Barry can break the record.

tem said...

or hell, some crazy fan might kill Barry.

El Padrino said...

Hank would never kill a man. He is a gentle giant.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

EP, how'd ya like your boy shawn green tightening up his yamulkah and ripping that shot?

El Padrino said...

There was a fly once. Really annoying fly. It kept buzzin around Hank's house, eating fruit and landing on food. He had enough, he wanted that fly dead. He rolled up the Atlanta Journal and raised his hand to smash that bug but couldn't. Immediately after that the fly willingly left the Aaron household knowing he left behind a dear, dear man.

El Padrino said...

that was a blast
he was sitting on it too

Springer is a fool

Silly reliever, fastballs are for jews.

tem said...

it would be humorous if he wore a yammika as a batting helmet.

El Padrino said...

am i in the running for free candy and ice cream?

Beth said...

ElP has a man crush on Hank Aaron.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

he jumped on the previous pitch too. betta ax somebody.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

"it would be humorous if he wore a yammika as a batting helmet."

they were working on it for him, but they couldnt get the little vents on the top done right.

El Padrino said...

yeah ripped it foul
no man crush, just trying to garner a helmet sticker

El Padrino said...

tem's cheap with those, i never got one

tem said...

hank aaron = helmet sicker.

i don't see ice cream in the future though.

tem said...

tps calls for a bit. needs hit with a hammer.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...


em ee tee ess

blue said...

did anyone ever notice that in Seinfeld the early seasons, George and Jerry are life long Mets fans, then later on, they are yankee fans...

blue said...

re: even count

I've felt this way for a long time, and now finally somebody has the cajones to bring it up publicly.

Expect SG to do an article relating to this in the near future.

blue said...

kaz matsui decided to play like he did with the mets last night...an error in the ninth that would have ended the game, but instead they lose.

El Padrino said...

MAZEL TOV!

whocares said...

I dont know that they are diehard Yanks fans, but that's who George works for.

blue said...

she's saying 'come hither'

El Padrino said...

i dont think seinfeld was a yankee fan, like WC said George worked for them

El Padrino said...

i know kramer hated keith hernandez

ToddPacker said...

jerry is a mets fan

ToddPacker said...

mets yamulkah is hilarious

blue said...

well in the early episodes, Jerry was always watching the mets on TV...then later episodes, it was the yankees, and he started going to yankee games, like the one where elaine wouldn't take off the orioles hat.

ToddPacker said...

that was a shot by grenn last night... it was one of theose rare 2 HR ABs

ToddPacker said...

i don't think jerry was at the game when elaine didn't take off the hat.... just gerge and kramer... (i think)

ToddPacker said...

tps has kilt my spellting skillz

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

free tix.

El Padrino said...

free booze

El Padrino said...

decent read from Caple

tem said...

i come back to 101 things to read

blue said...

i got through about 8 of them and fell asleep

El Padrino said...

pretty good stuff, pace yourself or save it for a shit

El Padrino said...

I've done 11 of them.....

El Padrino said...

The All-Africa Amputee Football Tournament (Sierra Leone).

not sure i want to do this one

call me crazy

ToddPacker said...

33. The All-Africa Amputee Football Tournament



wth

blue said...

I have also done 11

blue said...

that means i am over 10%, but not quite 11% of the way to finishing out this list

El Padrino said...

my 11 comes with a technicality

53. Green Bay Packers game in the snow (December, Green Bay).

I didn't go in December. I went in November, it was cold not snowy.

10.5

ToddPacker said...

i got 15....

4, 5, 6, 7, 16, 20, 22, 27, 29, 34, 61, 63, 87, 90 & 99

blue said...

TJW has done 104 of them

ToddPacker said...

"TJW has done 104 of them"

you left out "really fast"

blue said...

there are a couple more that I know I will do in the next few years...we have tentative auburn/alabama plans for 2008..was going to be 2007 but the kid got in the way

Beth said...

Well I guess for a "chick" this is pretty good, I've done 6 of them. And I've done lesser versions of 2 others (such as went to an Ironman triathlon but just not in Hawaii).

I would think it'll be tough for anyone to beat TP's 15.

El Padrino said...

Here are mine:

6, 15, 20, 28, 29, 34, 53, 74, 87, 90, 99

Beth said...

Damn, I just realized I missed 2, so I've really done 8+.

ToddPacker said...

"I would think it'll be tough for anyone to beat TP's 15"


i've got some extra years on everyone, though

Beth said...

Someone needs to keep track and see how many LOV as a group has done out of the 101. Any volunteers? :-)

El Padrino said...

i'm hot on his trail beth

i got 11 and 4 planned (3 tentatively, one set in stone)

World Series this year (shea)

NCAA Subregional (kicking myself for not doing it this year $$$$$)

Hall of Fame induction

Mich/O.State game

El Padrino said...

and i'm a young and up and comer

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

"Olympics: Guaranteed, you will see something that makes you proud to be human and call yourself a citizen not of one specific country but a citizen of the world."

this is a stretch.

blue said...

i don't know why the rockies would be playing their WS home games at Shea.

ToddPacker said...

i couldn't remember if i did #74... i think my parents took us to saratoga when we were young but i don't remember going to the races

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

"Mich/O.State game"

we're getting sloshed

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

EP, TJW is comin over for that game too. we're getting 10 kinds of crazy. (and only 10)

tem said...

i haven't read it yet.

i predict that tem has done 3 of them...at most.

Beth said...

Ok, not sure if anyone but me is interested, but if you list the ones you've done I'll keep track of what LOV as a group has done of these.

El Padrino said...

i left off 93

i have 12

El Padrino said...

iam now that's a party

El Padrino said...

i'm interested, mine are posted

El Padrino said...

we figured you would do that beth, it's sort of secretarial work....

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

re: the list

i have watched many of those on tv.

Beth said...

"we figured you would do that beth, it's sort of secretarial work...."

Damn did I set myself up for that one.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

this just in, jim caple did 4.

tem said...

I have done 5 of them.

I have been right next to another 5 of them and never done them.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...


wtf

blue said...

here you go beth

5,7,13,20,34,41,61,63,75,87,90

Spaceman Spiff said...

jerry was not at the game elaine wore the oriole hat

tem said...

5. NCAA Sub Reg
6. Spring Training
20. S Cup P-offs
32. Indy 500
95. UFC fight


I've turned down chances to go to OSU/Mich, the Little Brown Jug, and that Bike Race thing at IU.

I played in Little league, but never watched a game. If that counts then I am at 6.

tem said...

I suspect at some point I will do the OSU/Mich and Little Brown Jug.

The LBJ is like 20 mins from my house.

tem said...

iam's link goes way over my head.

Spaceman Spiff said...

briteneys nipple

not great quality but a link slump breaker for me

blue said...

does it count if you went to the winter olympics but didn't actually go to any of the events?

not that this is the case with me, but just wondering

tem said...

i'd say that does not count.

tem said...

that's would be akin to me counting an OSU/Mich game because I drove by the stadium on game day.

blue said...

good point...i guess i'll have to get figure skating tickets then

THE CHAMP. said...

2, 4, 5, 13,17, 20, 22, 34, 36, 41*, 42, 53, 75, 87, 90

*- I sat behind the bench, does that count?

tem said...

I'd say behind the bench counts as courtside.

Unless you were like 20 rows behind the bench.

tem said...

1-3 should count.

tem said...

1-3 rows that is.

THE CHAMP. said...

it was the first row behind the bench, basically i was in the huddle.

Beth said...

I'm counting it champ.

El Padrino said...

your good

El Padrino said...

Pharoah Monache is back

El Padrino said...

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

tem, just look at that picture... thats all u need to know.

THE CHAMP. said...

that's effed up.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

people that breath heavily/sigh into the phone (especially when sending out a group-wide voicemail) need to beaten.

tem said...

HUNGRY

isiah thomas said...

I checked in on the wwe broadcast last night a few observations:

1) Sounds like dood flipped out and off'd his wife and kid, yet they had all of these testimonials about what a great guy he was.

2) He was good friends with Eddie G, both now dead.

3) News of his death broke late yesterday yet they had an elaborate 3 hour tribue show already lined up? Maybe they have already produced shows for most of the popular wrestlers in case the roid rage gets them.

Chris Benoit was a compassionate and caring double murderer.

isiah thomas said...

if Benoit was such a great fucking guy he would have done us a favor and off'd Paris Hilton instead of his family.

selfish bastard.

El Padrino said...

yea, that's what i was sayin
"well if it was a murder suicide you cant really say he was a warm and gentle guy"

fact is he didnt show up for Sunday's pay per view so they called local authorities to check it out, they showed when he won the title at MSG WM20 and Latino Heat came in the ring and they cried and hugged, it was ironic

El Padrino said...

News broke late but they knew early Monday am

and i would think that's the last time Vinny Mac fakes his own death

El Padrino said...

the four horsemen were great though

i want Arn Anderson to break my arm

Beth said...

What's most interesting about the deaths is the DA saying the facts "are going to prove a little bizarre" when they come out. Gotta wonder what exactly that means.

isiah thomas said...

I caught the ending with the LH embrace....thought the same thing.

*cue Alanis Morisette

isiah thomas said...

1 less canadian though....

El Padrino said...

cant wait til this guy get's Siegfried

El Padrino said...

"1 less canadian though.... "

valid point

isiah thomas said...

I personally can't wait for the details.

isiah thomas said...

dynasty draft update (because you care):

1) LJ
2) Carson Palmer
3) Torry Holt

THE CHAMP. said...

have they said that Beniot is the killer?

maybe his son broke into daddy's roid stash and then went crazy.

THE CHAMP. said...


Damn alligator bit my arm!....but i got his eye!

El Padrino said...

not for nothing but his son looked a bit .....

nevermind i'm not gonna say it

blue said...

"It took seven Fish and Wildlife officers an hour to trap the one-eyed alligator, which measured 10 feet, 11 inches, Morse said"

I thought Happy Gilmore killed that gator becuase it took Chub's hand...it was missing an eye too

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

lion pics are great.

isiah thomas said...

on a scale of 1 to J Kidd's Kidd what is he?

isiah thomas said...

1 being normal

J Kidd's Kidd = short bus style

El Padrino said...

no comment

El Padrino said...

shoulda started Maroth
i forgot he's Cy Young's distant cousin

blue said...

going from AL to NL Maroth might end up being superhuman

El Padrino said...

i was certain the mets were going to beat him up though

blue said...

I only play the "don't start" game at the end of the week if it's close

Corbin said...

Solid dynasty start there zeke...who else rounded out the roster?

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

Maroth was always solid for us, he just played on some turrible teams. i'll give 2 sniffles for him and Ledezma.

Corbin said...

So...is it safe to assume it's now

% 0.00 toothless aggression?

Who wants to make up the t-shirts

Corbin said...

Maroth was getting about 6 inches on the outside of the plate, and the up in the zone...all those frisbees were floating in outside and called for strikes...

He did look good though, much better than I anticipated...Sosa pitched a solid game as well

blue said...

well if you have corbin's ffb approval, then you are doing well there zeke

Mills said...

Here are my contributions:

6. Spring Training

22. Wrigley (but I wasn't in the bleachers)

73. Field of Dreams (but I didn't go to the ghost game)

85. Iowa-ISU wrasslin.

blue said...

so in other words, Mills has 2

Corbin said...

"well if you have corbin's ffb approval, then you are doing well there zeke "

Truer words have never been spoken...

In my keeper league I've got LJ and Carson as well...(along with Shaun, and Portis), so our fates will be tied...

Mills said...

so in other words, Mills has 2

I was thinking I should get half credit for each.

So that would make it 3.

Why couldn't he put National Championship Game on there? Or Orange Bowl? I could at least look like I have done stuff then.

Mills said...

Nice win by the Mets last night. I like the low scoring thrillers, even if we came out on the wrong end.

Maroth looked good enough to be our no. 1 until carp gets back. le sigh....

PS -
I wouldn't weasel out of any bet either Elp. I never agreed to anything on here (re: KC) to weasel out of in the first place.

isiah thomas said...

corby - that's all so far, we're in round 3.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

1 pick a day?

blue said...

do you guys have like an hour between picks?

blue said...

i'm guessing picks are being done over email?

Corbin said...

Drafting via email while at work? What area you targetting next?

Mills said...

Cards still probably should have won the game. 3 hits in 11 innings should = win. but not with us. not this year.

Mills said...

i would hope RB is on the agenda.

blue said...

i suggest Calvin Johnson, because the lions are going to win at least 10 games and put up 44 pts/game

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

and 10 is lowballing.

blue said...

maybe kitna meant including last year

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

maybe he was thinking he was still on the Bengals.

Corbin said...

"re:maybe he was thinking he was still on the Bengals"

I could see this as an excuse for being arrested...but not for his false claims of games won...

Maybe he's making a documentary on race relations within the media today...Roy Williams made an outlandish claim last year and was laughed at...perhaps whitey will receive a bit more respect

Corbin said...

That or he saw how well the Guaran-Sheed worked out in the motor city

(S)

thejaywhite said...

Expect a TJW announcement within the hour.

Feel free to leave your reasons for TJW to leave or stay.

And for most of you just acting like the douchebags you are will count as reasons to leave.

blue said...

lets just look at their schedule:

1.@ Oakland (W)--Jamarcus first start will be a dud
2.Vikings (W)-Tavaris Jackson? Please
3.@ Philly (W)-Donovan won't be quite right yet
4.Bears (W)-Momentum is key
5.@ Skins (W)-Gibbs can't stop Martz attack
6.Bye - the only way to stop the winning
7.Bucs (W)- it will be a close game but garcia will have flashbacks and suck like he always does at Ford field
8.@Bears (L)- 2 freak devin hester td's seal the deal
9.Broncos (W)- CJ welcomes Dre Bly back to Detroit by catchin 5 TDs
10.@cards (W)-Kitna won't be intimidated by Leinart
11.Giants(W)-Kalimba Edwards sacks Eli 4 times
12.Packers (W)-Thanksgiving..nuff said
13.@Vikings (L)-Adrian Peterson runs for 378 yards
14.Cowboys (W)-Romo fumbles hold again
15.@Chargers (W)-Merriman and co can't catch CJ and R-dub...yeah, he's going by R-dub by this point in the season
16.Chiefs (W)-kc season fell apart when both of LJ's legs literally fell off in week 9.
17.@Packers (L)-Favre's last game and the lions have home field wrapped through the NFC playoffs.

final record 13-3

makes sense to me, kitna is selling them short

Corbin said...

Mets bullpen was huge last night...Joe Smith, though a bit rattled (especially when he threw the pitch on the outside corner of the plate with Wright playing off the line to sneak through with a slapper) came through, Feliciano came on in a big spot and proved he's not just a situational lefty, Wags going 2, and Heilman poaching yet ANOTHER victory (dude has 9 decisions)

Cards had no answer

El Padrino said...

i'll never forgive heilman for last year


never

blue said...

i vote for TJW to stay

Corbin said...

Heilman/Milledge for Harden i'm all for...maybe even blanton (after his latest showing against the mets)

isiah thomas said...

the draft started yesterday afternoon.

Most guys in the league are using the draftroom tool via the league website, but its blocked here.

next round I'm targeting whatever RB is left on the scrap-heap.

Corbin said...

Everyone must first realize that if TJW leaves it would mean all the shit from this board will go back upon weazy (rather than the 85/15 split they have worked out.) With all the extra hate he'll more than likely take MrsWeazy down in a blaze of Benoit-ian glory...

That being said, i vote for TJW to take his 90210 updates elsewhere (thus killing two birds with one stone)

isiah thomas said...

straw poll :

will TJW leave?

isiah thomas said...

forgot the (S)

isiah thomas said...

I just read that Benoit hung himself in the family weight room.


hang and bang baby, FEEL THE BURN!

blue said...

so the latest rumor is that Kobe told the lakers that even if they got Garnett he still wants out, KG called and talked to the bean, and beano still wants out, so KG no wants Lakers anymore

isiah thomas said...

Benoit details

isiah thomas said...

Authorities also said they are investigating whether steroids may have been a factor in the deaths of Benoit, his wife and their 7-year-old son who were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide.


who's the investigating officer, Gomer Pile?

hmmm a 5'9'' guy who's 270 lbs of swolledupedness is on PEDs?

I'm shocked.

tem said...

reiteration of tem's feelings on TJW.

TDGAF

isiah thomas said...

KG called kobe to talk about white women

isiah thomas said...

I hope Benoit just wasn't on roids but on some really far out there shit like Ostrich hormones or something.

isiah thomas said...

if TJW leaves who is beth going to marry?

Mills said...

i heard the real reason that Beniot hung himself and killed his wife/kid was because he lost to TJW in a 40 yd dash, and that it was bullshit cuz everybody know Beniot wears the tightest t-shirts in town.

He couldn't handle the loss, even to a super-freak athlete like TJW. So he roided up to train, and...well you know the rest.

This is according to credible sources who "know" people.

tem said...

hahaha that was funny.

tem said...

its all over getting out "tight t-shirted"

blue said...

good one weazy

blue said...

tem and blue sucking up to move up the rankings

Mills said...

flattery will get you everywhere.

tem said...

anyone have any idea why my Outlook stopped saving my sent emails to my sent folder?

El Padrino said...

i heard Benoit killed his family cuz they brought home pet weasels.

1@mun5t0pp@bl3 said...

is Chris Benoit gonna have to choke a bitch?

Corbin said...

http://www.hardballtimes.com/thtstats/main/?view=winshares&league_filter[]=NL

Most exciting player in MLB = player with most winshares

Corbin said...

Am i the only one who believes Benoit is only an extension of the city he lived in?

Mrs. Benoit, much like the braves over the weekend choked (to death...die chipper die)

blue said...

yes, you're the only one

Mills said...

Funny how he is listed 7th when you consider both the American and National Leagues.

good try though...

Mills said...

Their defensive pts are messed up.

Middle Infielders and Catchers get huge bumps. Redonkulous.

blue said...

i am speechless, it's a travesty

blue said...

i can't believe corbin would try and be sneaky with information

blue said...

i don't know where to turn now

isiah thomas said...

tem - check your options to make sure "save copies of sent emails to sent folder" is checked.

if it is then you must have set-up a rule by mistake to save sent items elsewhere.

blue said...

I don't like to save my sent items, because I don't like living in the past...i'm all about the here and now

Corbin said...

It was a link i was provided, i was unaware that it was sorted by NL only...

p.s. someone teach mills how to come up with rankings...because i am wondering how being tied for 4th = 7th?

isiah thomas said...

maybe Benoit's wife found out that he's still making love to a picture of Latino Heat.
