This one's for Ookie

Ookie (which I am not even sure is spelt right) is banned from training camp. Everyone should have seen this coming. In the end, it doesn't really matter twatever you think, it only matters what Goodell thinks. And right now he is coming off as a person who has been planning everything he would have done better than Tags for the last 10 years. Now is his chance and he is going for it. Farting on the subway gets you a 10 play suspension. Gun charges, half a season. Felony dog killing, just sit your ass down until Mr. Goodell tells you to get up. It might be awhile Ookie.

WWL leader is up to it again with their ridiculous headlines. No Selig, No HR for Bonds -- Ex-Mistress In Playboy. Now I know that shit means that Bonds' ex-mistress is in playboy, but I'll be damned if I didn't read it as if Selig's ex-mistress was in playboy. And that is something that I highly doubted I wanted to see.

Random Side Note: I have about 4 emails that I really want to read, but I am holding off on them so that I can get this thing posted in a timely manner. I hope you all are pleased.

Arena Bowl is this weekend. I am going to be there in New Orleans cheering on the Destroyers. I don't have much to say about it, but I needed to give it its due. You know, because its cool. Whether you believe it or not. And don't anyone tell me that's the same stance Mr. Stern takes with the WNBA. That's just crazy talk.

Random Side Note: I gots me some NCAA 2008 for the 360. I fired up the legend mode where the coach calls the play and you run them. I am sitting pretty as WVUs second string back when Slaton gets hurt, so I get the call. Richie Rod proceeds to call every running play into the sideline and never runs the read option. WVU runs the read option about every other play. What the fuck EA Sports??? I am genuinely pissed about this. Their offense in the game isn't even close to replicating their real life offense. Also I am still pissed that last year they had Pat White as a white right handed QB. Dude is a black lefthander.

Finally the movie review of a movie I have never seen. If you don't know what this is about go check out last week's post by me. I 'splained it there. Anyway this review is for Swingers:

Swingers is about some actor dudes who suck, but then become semi-popular. One of them thinks he is smarter than the others and always tells them funny stories or life lessons that everyone should know. Some people think these lessons are cool, others see the truth. After awhile one of them gets a girlfriend and starts to go to a swingers club (hence the movie name). Sadly there are no good scenes of the guy's girlfriend getting it on with another chick. In fact dude and his girl aren't very good swingers at all. This causes tension between him and his chick and he goes back to his actor friends. I think that part of the movie takes about 20 minutes. So basically the whole movie is just some dudes talking. I give it 2 helmet stickers out of 5.

First

tem said...

awesome. my day is complete.

tem said...

it appears as though today is going to be another slow day.

ToddPacker said...

mets didn't play last night... that's all for me today, thank you and drive safely

Beth said...

But the Braves won...

Big Brother's Brother said...

present.

blue said...

all you would have had to say about Swingers is

"it's so money it doesn't even know how money it is"

tem said...

my morning is going by rather quickly.

tem said...

Swingers is all hat and no cattle.

That is what I should have written.

tem said...

For me Swingers and Rounders are the same movie.

I haven't seen either and people quote them both all the time.

Beth said...

That phrase covers many things in life Tem, you usually can't go wrong using it.

tem said...

also i'm glad to see TP made it in.

we will have to have a this ones for TP day so he can ctrl f for hours.

blue said...

swingers is an OK movie...rounders is better. But neither is on the level of say Adventures in Babysitting

blue said...

Swingers is like Clerks, in color, and with more action, but less witty dialogue

tem said...

Howard the Duck was on a couple nights ago. I DVRed that shit.

tem said...

I should put Blue's review after mine so that someone who has seen it would have reviewed it.

blue said...

Howard the Duck is a classic. I haven't seen that in forever

blue said...

No EP yet today..i wonder if there is a baby EP in the process

blue said...

and yes, from now on, anytime EP is not around, that's what i'm guessing

that or he was arrested for soliciting a prostitute, and we will all call him John now

tem said...

That's a lot of stuff to remember.

tem said...

is baby EP due soon?

blue said...

so, come to find out, the threat against my wife's building was actually for today...the police were just "staking out" the place to watch for the perp.

so i may have to leave if her building gets blown up.

blue said...

i think the last time EP gave an update it was a couple of weeks to go, maybe like 3 now?

tem said...

ah so it is possible.

tem said...

so i take it the po po are at her work again today?

tem said...

or did they figure that their show of force yesterday would just keep the dude away today?

blue said...

yes, but they are "hiding"

sneaky police bastards

whocares said...

RE: HOward the Duck.



That was Tim Robbins' finest movie.

Shawshank Redemption my ass...

blue said...

i don't understand...they know who the guy is, and have his address and phone number...but the police say they can't talk to him unless he shows up.

that sounds pretty ridiculous to me

whocares said...

The police are hiding?



Are they using your wife and her co-workers as bait?

whocares said...

FYI, if I think there is going to be a sniper I'm gonna go ahead and call in sick.

blue said...

that's what it sounds like WC

tem said...

it sounds like they are WC.

tem said...

yeah on bomb threat or sniper threat days, i either work from home or don't feel well that day.

tem said...

hell even if the bomb threat was for the building next to mine i would not show up that day.

blue said...

she is probably blowing it all out of proportion because she doesn't seem to have any worries walking in there today, but yesterday afternoon for the entire afternoon, there were at least 4 cop cars in strategic locations watching the building.

whocares said...

Blue,


They have to have some reason to go after him. I dont think idle threats can get you arrested. He has to show intent.

I bet I learnt that from weez and kod.

blue said...

supposedly the guy is ex-military, and he didn't like how the company was treating him.

it might be John Rambo...in that case, she's screwed.

blue said...

but if you phone in a "bomb threat" that is something that you can be arrested for...happened to a kid I knew.

whocares said...

Hell, just knowing there's a crazy man on the loose in Colorado is making me feel a little queezy.

I may need to go home for the day.

blue said...

oh well, if he goes on a rampage like Cho... the blood is on their hands

Circle of LoV

El Padrino said...

no baby yet (due 2 weeks from today)


TPS set a fire to this motherfucker early this am
i've been peeing on it ever since

blue said...

YES...my alma mater is ranked 106 over the last 10 years of NCAA football by ESPN.com...i'm so proud

El Padrino said...

this sounds like that tommy lee jones movie "the hunted"

swingers is solid

tem said...

my alma matter might be lower than that.

i will have to check.

El Padrino said...

your like a big bear
with big giant paws
and she's just like a little rabbit

tem said...

nope.

blue said...

is it bad that i'm rooting for my wife to be put on bedrest so we can buy a PS3 or an XBox 360.

she has said that if she gets put on bed rest (not a real high likelihood) that she would want one of those to keep her occupied during the day.

whocares said...

I'm thinking my Alma Mater will be somewhere around 14-17.

tem said...

I am thinking high 80s, low 90s for mine. (Indiana)

If I did my undergrad place it would be about 10,000th. As it was a terrible D3 school. Well terrible for football.

tem said...

and no it is not bad that you hope that Blue.

Beth said...

Well it's a little bad...

blue said...

I attended Boise State for a year, so I can "claim" them as well. They should end up in the top 25.

tem said...

maybe a little, but not bad enough.

El Padrino said...

bedrest is bad

blue said...

this is why i'm torn...she would go nuts if she was put on bedrest...which in turn would make me go nuts

but....

JFreak said...

hello.

blue said...

interesting tidbit from Marc Stein's column about the ref gambling thing:

"One source wondered aloud Monday whether the FBI might have insisted that the NBA let Donaghy keep working to preserve the larger sting operation, suggesting that suspending him before the playoffs would have cost them the crime-ring types that were originally being targeted"

blue said...

look Dan the Man showed up in another form today


bitch ass

blue said...

the thing about this crooked ref...everyone is saying that it's hard to point out when he was/wasn't effecting the game for gambling reasons.

The thing is, a foul can be called on just about every play, it just matters how much the refs let go. It's like holding in football. So it's nearly impossible to watch game film and go "oh that ref is cheating"

blue said...

The NFL cares

tem said...

all for a number.

tem said...

i wish we were jerseys in the office.

tem said...

umm wore jerseys i mean....not were.

El Padrino said...

THIS DAY FUCKING SUCKS BALLLLLSSSSS

blue said...

that's true...you never hear about the new guy offering some other employee money for his computer.

"hey i've always used HPs, and they gave me a Dell. I'll give you 25K$ if you give me your HP"

tem said...

i might have to try that with someones office pen.

tem said...

but with like 8 cents instead of 25K$

JFreak said...

I think I'm sick.

This sucks.

Beth said...

Lindsey Lohan arrested again, this time for cocaine and another suspected DUI.

tem said...

physically or mentally?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Who wants JJ? Cause I sure as hell don't.

JFreak said...

physically.

And man, I did not see that Lohan thing coming.

tem said...

Lohan is awesome.

tem said...

being her publicist must suck.

whocares said...

Lohan. Dead before 25?



I'm putting the odds at even money right now.

tem said...

and whatever rehab facility she went to must suck.

6 weeks there and she lasts one day on the outside.

1 day?

tem said...

oh wait, she lasted 2 weeks apparently. the place still sucks.

tem said...

either dead or has 4 kids by that age.

blue said...

4 kids by 25 would be tough...what with all the time she's spending in rehab and jail

blue said...

doesn't california have a 3 strikes law...does that mean this is strike 2 for Lohan, and one more and she gets put away for life?

or are DUIs not part of that 3 strikes plan

whocares said...

Either way, at the rate she's aging, she is going to look like my grandmother by the time she's 30.


She's 21 now and has the complexion of a 40 year old tanning bed addict (no offense Beth).

tem said...

it would be awesome if she started dating k fed.

tem said...

getting caught with cocaine has to be bad for her.

whocares said...

"or are DUIs not part of that 3 strikes plan"




I was wondering that myself Blue. Does the three strikes thing count if you're a celebrity? If so, she might be out of chances. Just read the article and it looks like she has:


2 DUI's.
1 Hit and Run.
1 Posession of Coke-a-yeena.
1 Driving with suspended license.

Keith S said...

David Stern is holding a press conference right now. Apparently he was the leader of the mob group.

Keith S said...

"he" = Stern

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Lohan can't die until a sex tape comes out.

Keith S said...

(s)

whocares said...

That's five strikes if your counting.

A few more of those and we'll be out of the inning with the no-no still in tact.

blue said...

I want to say they amended that 3 strikes rule to exclude DUI...but i'm not positive.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Any body up for some weird Deke dreams?

I've got 2 from last night.

blue said...

hit us deke

Beth said...

"She's 21 now and has the complexion of a 40 year old tanning bed addict (no offense Beth)"

Since I'm neither 40 or a tanning bed addict, none taken WC. :-)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"it would be awesome if she started dating k fed."

That would make 4 kids by 25 possible. K-Fed likes to fuck drunk, doped up starlets.

tem said...

i figure he gets them drunk and doped up.

tem said...

crazy dreams are always entertaining.

tem said...

and yes a lohan sex tape is needed.

tem said...

dammit i am going to push this shit to madneww all by myself.

tem said...

madneww

blue said...

good work Temathy

Beth said...

I still prefer madness. I think madneww is all hat and no cattle.

(I do believe that's the first time I used that phrase.)

tem said...

beth popped her AH&NC cherry.

Beth said...

I need to come up with a woman's equivalent of all hat and no cattle. Maybe something like all bra and no boobs.

tem said...

temathy sounds like apathy.

Mills said...

Swingers is a 4 out of 5 easy.

Blue -- that was an intruiging offer.

I actually thought about it.

Mills said...

why did you pull it?

Beth said...

"temathy sounds like apathy"

Which means you should like it then, if you cared that is...

blue said...

our Orel Hershiser type scoreless innings streak has come to an end

JFreak said...

half of me's all about apathy, the other half just doesn't care.

Keith S said...

It was a good run though.

blue said...

"why did you pull it?"

i'm still working out the details, it wasn't quite right

tem said...

all bra and no breastesses.

Mills said...

They have to have some reason to go after him. I dont think idle threats can get you arrested. He has to show intent.
-------

This is true WC. Culpable Mental State or your Mens Rea

But they might be able to show it without him actually showing up. Just depends on the facts really.

Mills said...

doesn't california have a 3 strikes law...does that mean this is strike 2 for Lohan, and one more and she gets put away for life?
----------

KS is going to do a 3 strikes rule. Only it is 3 felonies and you are guaranteed to go to jail for some time. Not for life, just sometime.

Wow... way to swing the big stick KS.

Mills said...

"or are DUIs not part of that 3 strikes plan"
---------

DUI's are generally misdeamors. go to felonies at 3 I think.

tem said...

HUNGRY time.

tem said...

keep working on that slogan beth.

Mills said...

I killed it. I killed the [board].

in tommy boy suit at the prehistoric forest diner.

Mills said...

back to the shitstorm that is tps. long week here.

Beth said...

Yeah Tem, the slogan still needs tweaking, although I did think the bra/boobs one wasn't bad.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I got it.

All tits and no wits.

isiah thomas said...

David Stern sounds like a little bitch in this press conference, for as polished a speaker as he is, there are a ton of "ummmmm"'s.

blue said...

all push up and no breasts?

all padding and no tits?

all kleenex and no mammaries?

Beth said...

(And just to step over the line)

All pad and no tampon?

Keith S said...

Over the line? You're so far over the line that you can't even see the line. The line is a dot to you.

isiah thomas said...

So it's nearly impossible to watch game film and go "oh that ref is cheating"

Blue, he worked Game 3 of the Suns/Spurs this year.

He made a call out of position (from half court) that was at least 3 or more seconds late. Even the announcers (supposed to be unbiased) openly questioned what he was doing.

I see your point but this is a prime example of him throwing games.

isiah thomas said...

3 straight no-no's was axing too much.

isiah thomas said...

Someone brought up letting the guy keep officiating to not screw up the sting..but Stern said that they initially found out about the guy after the finals were over.

Beth said...

Thanks Keith, that's the reaction I was hoping for. Lord knows I've had that same reaction plenty of times about some of the other comments posted on here. :-)

isiah thomas said...

All hymen and no roast beef.

?

blue said...

I agree Zeke, that was a blatant example. But i'm saying over the course of reviewing all of his games it would be very difficult, save a few calls here or there, to point out the calls he was making intentionally

blue said...

Keith throws out a "friends" reference.

is this accepted or unacceptable by LoV standards?

blue said...

not sure of the LoV stance on that show.

it's no flight of the conchords

isiah thomas said...

which comment was a Friends quote?

is being able to easily recognize this acceptable?

Beth said...

Of course Blue if the reference is unacceptable shouldn't knowing that it's a Friends reference also be unacceptable? :-)

Personally, I had no clue it was Friends til you pointed it out.

isiah thomas said...

I hear ya blue, they'll have to look at games he ref'd and spreads, over/unders and the outcome, the number of calls he made vs the other refs, etc. If he did pt shave then there will be a pattern.

isiah thomas said...

at least stern will be able to order another zorse head to use on Donaghy.

JFreak said...

My skin is falling off.

Its Butters!!! said...

Pointing out a reference is in fact probably worse than using it originally...

Its Butters!!! said...

And it appears that Blue was a crazy proposing/pulling trade offer fool last night...I had two offers extended/pulled myself

WATSUPWITDAT?

Keith S said...

I'd hate to be a ref. You can't even play blackjack.

blue said...

hey, i watch/watched friends...i'm not afraid to say it...i was a man of the 90's

whocares said...

I watched friends as well and noticed the quote. I was just going to let it go.


The quote about the line and the dot was from friends...

Keith S said...

It's not like I quoted Sex and the City or something.

El Padrino said...

hahahahahahah

Friends

AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

El Padrino said...

although i cant fault a man for watching it

aniston's nipples alone made that show

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

#1

So, me & Deluxe go to visit our friend that lives out in the boonies. Small, modest house with a wooden trailer-park-type trailer in the side yard. A total POS on the outside.

It turns out, our friend we were visiting is TO. Deluxe decides to get some cocktails inside the house with some ladies, I go out into the yard to inspect said trailer. Deluxe hollers out the front door, "He's not here!". "What the fuck?", I say. I go in the house to get a drink, and decide to go see what's inside the trailer. I open the door, and lo and behold, this shitty trailer is immaculate inside. And there's TO, playing Madden with Peyton, Eli, Jeter, and A-Rod. Whooping it up, drinking, smoking reefer, and having a balls-out good time.

I saunter back to the house and give Deluxe the pop quiz. "Guess who he's playing Madden with?" Deluxe comes right back with "Peyton?". "Yep", I say, "And Eli, Jeter, and A-Rod". By this time, Deluxe is fucking pumped and wants to run the fuck out there. I told him to shut up, and be cool. He complies. So, the two of us make our way out to the trailer and spend the day playing video games, drinking heavily, and smoking pot with 5 world class athletes.

The End.

isiah thomas said...

I watched some sex and the city with FMZ.

aren't there some ti-tay shots in it?

S&C > Friends on the fag scale?

isiah thomas said...

and did someone say Boise St should be ranked in the Top 25 in the last 10 years of CFB?

Keith S said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Keith S said...

I think TCU would be ahead of Boise State. They have been in the top 25 just about every year the last decade.

El Padrino said...

luckily miz el pad no watch sex in the city so i'm good there

Big Brother's Brother said...

wtf

tem said...

who was the fifth world class athlete? or are you couting eli?

tem said...

Boise State will be in the Top 25. Remember its the WWL who is doing the list. They will just write about the win over Oklahoma and the Play and call it a day with Boise at 19 or something.

tem said...

short lunch today.

isiah thomas said...

short lunch today.

I'm sorry for your loss.

El Padrino said...

eli can throw a football through your chest

isiah thomas said...

So ESPN is doing a Top 25 of the last 10 years?

training camps are starting up....MLB is hitting the stretch run....

why are they continuing to manufacture stuff like this?

ESPN is starting to suck.

El Padrino said...

zeke i dont get it either

what ever happened to just reporting sports?

jugdish said...

"So it's nearly impossible to watch game film and go "oh that ref is cheating"


Another example of how you can tell from cnnsi.com:

The Bulls-Warriors game of Feb. 9, played at Golden State was tied, 112-112, with 23 seconds remaining. While a Bulls guard dribbled between midcourt and the 3-point shot line -- clearly working the clock down for an attempt at a final shot -- Warriors center Andris Biedrens stood in the lane without guarding anyone for about seven seconds, which is grounds for a defensive three-seconds violation. Donaghy, stationed behind Biedrens on the baseline, clearly stepped forward and tapped Biedrens on the waist with 16 seconds left. Biedrens, by then at the edge of the lane, then immediately moved clear of the paint, and play continued. The penalty for defensive three seconds is the assessment of a technical foul and retention of the ball. Golden State could have faced a 3- or 4-point deficit before getting the ball back.

jugdish said...

"Keith throws out a "friends" reference.

is this accepted or unacceptable by LoV standards?"

Its the same punishment as recognizing the Friends reference if I remember correctly.

jugdish said...

Zeke already hit that one up...good call!

blue said...

I said Boise State will be in the top 25 over the last 10 years. While they haven't played the powerhouse teams every year...if you look at winning % alone over the last 10 years, they are in the top 5-10 nationally.

blue said...

I'm not saying they are a powerhouse but top 25 for consistency over the last 10 years is good enuff

they won't fill the top 25 with all BCS teams

Big Brother's Brother said...

donaughy always hit the over by like 10-13 pts per game, so sayeth some esspin article. this is apparently outrageous.

tem said...

also they got an NCAA cover.

jugdish said...

"ESPN is starting to suck."

ESPN has too many channels, too many things going on so they have to make shit up.

blue said...

I agree with Jug...they have too many people working for them so they can't all just report on training camp.

Plus, all the NFL preview shit on .COM is insider access..fuck that.

jugdish said...

Shit...someone just cooked fish in the microwave on our floor.

jugdish said...

I'm sick of the all the lists they make, the best of all time, top 100 this...it gets old and who gives a shit anyways?

El Padrino said...

fuckin fish fairy

isiah thomas said...

I'm not saying they are a powerhouse but top 25 for consistency over the last 10 years is good enuff

fair point. I'd like to see the list, is it up?

A few seasons ago as Boise was getting national pub they went into Georgia and got beat the fuck down, this is more where I'm coming from. Great win % but if you get smoked like that how great is it?

But again, its the SEC so I'll give Boise St. the benefit of the doubt.

IT'S THE SEC!

Its Butters!!! said...

"R.J. Bell, president of the sports betting Web site Pregame.com, says that referee Tim Donaghy's games went above the over/under betting line 57 percent of the time in 2006-07.

That's a significant increase, considering games he refereed were over just 44 percent of the time between 2003-05. While in and of itself that doesn't prove anything, Bell also found that in games where the spread moved at least 1 1/2 points, the team getting the big action covered in 10 straight games officiated by Donaghy from January through April of this year. Bell said the odds of that were 1,024 to 1. Again, this is all circumstantial evidence pending a full investigation." from rotowold

blue said...

zeke-
the list is coming out in pieces, right now they only have 100-119, they are working from the bottom up.

isiah thomas said...

Tem just out of curiosity how much are Arena Bowl tickets?

isiah thomas said...

is it the last 10 years or this season?

jugdish said...

"Tem just out of curiosity how much are Arena Bowl tickets?"

I heard they were free with three UPC symbols off of Lucky Charms.

isiah thomas said...

and enough with all the Vick coverage.....

he was involved with dog fighting/killing....not real peoples.

You'd think Vick was involved with ethnic cleansing in Rwanda (sp).

blue said...

it looks like the last 10 years

tem said...

i paid $170 a piece for my tickets.

They are lower bowl mid field about 18 rows up. Maybe 19.

tem said...

face value on them was probably $75 or $80.

isiah thomas said...

that's dedication holmes

tem said...

i am pissed because i axed the destroyers if they'd have any tickets available for season ticket holders if the Destroyers made it and they told me no.

so as soon as the destroyers made it i got some tix on ticketmaster exchange.

then like 4 days later the destroyers send me an email telling me that they have a small number of tix available for season ticket holders.

tem said...

well since i am no longer going on a big vacation this year this will be one of a couple mini-vacations.

El Padrino said...

remember "nappy headed ho's"

isiah thomas said...

at least the game is in New Orleans and not some bitch ass place like Mission, KS.

tem said...

Indiana at 94.

El Padrino said...

betcha vick is thinking along the lines of that knife fight in anchorman

that really got out of hand

Keith S said...

Every SEC should be in the top 25 for the last decade. That conference is really good.

Its Butters!!! said...

Yea BR (V) ick...did I see you electrocute and slam them to the ground?

You may want to get out of the country, you're now wanted for Murder

isiah thomas said...

is the allegation that VICK slammed the dog, eloctrocuted, drowned, etc or that he watched?

isiah thomas said...

and I get the conspiracy charge means even if he watched or knew about it, it makes him guilty....but damn, if he wasn't the one doing it then who gives a fuck?

El Padrino said...

david ortiz has 16 hr's?

wtf

Big Brother's Brother said...

and theres gotta be video somewhere of it too.. too many alpha males around to not have at least 1 bust out a camera of some sort.

i can smell the stench of malt liquor already..

El Padrino said...

vick's boy's failed him

El Padrino said...

pass the cisco son, i'm fittin' to slam this bitch

Keith S said...

.com has a link to their ESPNShop on the main page w/ the picture of a t-shirt that says "DA-NUN-NUN DA-NUN-NUN" and the sportscenter logo. Who buys that shit?
