El Padrino's Weekly Betting Column

Ramblings of a degenerate.....

Wake with a nice home win. No one mentions the fact that Bowden doesn't coach anymore either. Everyone is on Paterno but I don't see Bowden wearing any headset or even telling his guys what to do.

There is a guy on FSU named Fagg. Not cool.

Rockies roll, all signs pointed to that win. Layoff my ass, this team is hotter than Alba in a white string bikini right now.

Newman wins the pole. NEWWWMAAN.

Pre-season NBA? Nah, not feeling it just yet.


I wish

I had

more time.

Where I stand:
Overall 18-20

Last Week:
1-2 College
2-2 Pros

College

USC -21.5 over Arizona ($50)
Wrong place wrong time for the Wildcats. I feel a woodshed moment. Despite the last couple of years of close contests.
Note: As of this a.m sophmore QB Mark Sanchez (of the mexican descent) was named starter with Booty out with an injury. This may or may not change my bet.

MIAMI -3 over Gtech ($50)
Tech has won the last two and since this Shannon guy appears to have Miami back on the right track I figure he'll get them motivated to beat a inconsistent Tech team coming off a tough road loss. Tech beats Clemson but loses to Virginia. Now I know losing to Butch Davis in North Carolina was a bad loss forMiami but they way they whipped up on A&M at home is the game I point to as an example of their improved play this year.

CAL -14 over Oregon St. ($50)
Cal keeps it going, and big. Something like last year's 41-13 thrashing. Man this year's Cal/USC game is going to be electric.

Pros

Houston +7 over JAX ($50)
Wait. So this Houston team is much improved from last year's Texans team, right? Ok so last year's Texans team beat these Jags twice last year. Why the 7 points? Either Vegas was impressed with Jax's thrashing of the Cheifs (I'm not) or they are making a rare mistake. I had this line pegged at 4. I'll take the seven everytime these two teams play.

Philly -3.5 over NYJ ($1,000,000)
This is one of those games where you say to yourself, "Self, why didn't I put my Civic on this game" as Buckhalter cruises into the endzone late in the 4th quarter expanding on a 3 TD lead.

Oakland +10.5 over SAN DIEGO ($50)
You have to like the 10 points here. The Bronco game notwithstanding the Chargers seemed like a team that just couldn't score at will vs anyone. I have to give the Raiders a shot in this one. They have good defense and speacial teams and have been preparing for two weeks now. Pep is healthy and ready to go.

Over 42- Bengals @ Cheifs ($50)
Bengals D is expired milk bad. LJ rewards Fantasy owners this week. Over is 20-8 in KC last 28 games in October.

Teaser (1-2 overall) ($100)
3 teams/10 points

Philly +7
Miami +15 (desperate)
Titans +13

Oh, I forgot. Rockies in 5 & Indians in 7.
Indians over Colorado in 5.

Indians get on the board for the first time since 1948. Good story.

EP, no way can I let you get away with this. :-)

In today's post you throw out: "Rockies roll, all signs pointed to that win."

Yet in yesterday's comments you said: "dbacks win game 1, everyone knows that."

Come on EP, make up your mind! :-)

El Padrino said...

I know that beth, I was betting against the trends. I think I said that yesterday. Was trying to be cute, thinking the layoff would hurt the Rockies but I got it wrong. should have played the trends, they were too strong to ignore.

ToddPacker said...

"No one mentions the fact that Bowden doesn't coach anymore either"


bowden hasn't coached for years... it's not really a story any more... dude takes 2 naps a day

El Padrino said...

i like how you dug up that one comment though, working in that law office....didnt take long did it?

El Padrino said...

Dipietro was solid last night tp

tem said...

i got half the score right.

tem said...

old people need naps.

Beth said...

Don't get defensive EP, I was just doing my job. :-) As all guys know it's the woman's role to point out to guys when they are wrong. I think that's mandated by law or something...

ToddPacker said...

"Dipietro was solid last night tp"


i don't think he was in net last night.... but 8 goals against is not good

blue said...

does that mean TP takes naps during his long lunches?

ToddPacker said...

no i haven't taken a nap since the 40's

blue said...

I like how everyone give TP a hard time for being the "old guy" but if I remember right, Rev is the same age, if not older, and they're only a couple of years older than me...

but it's still funny

blue said...

then again...LoV rev died...rip Rev

ToddPacker said...

i'm a year older than rev

El Padrino said...

that was not defensive, defensive would have been name calling at the very least

El Padrino said...

i thought there was someone else on here that was older too

blue said...

Rockies have Jimenez going tonight...he has great stuff...if he can get it over the plate.

He could hold the d-bags to 2 or 3 hits, or give up 7 runs and be gone after 3 innings...

ToddPacker said...

mvn, maybe

El Padrino said...

the ghost of mvn, right

Beth said...

"no i haven't taken a nap since the 40's"

I think you meant "no i haven't taken a nap since I was in my 40's".

(Figured I might as well go for the easy joke since we're already talking about making fun of TP for his age.)

Big Brother's Brother said...

pumps and a bumps

blue said...

which was longer ago? the 40's or tp being in his 40's?

Beth said...

And for those of you who watch The Office, I thought last night's episode was the best of the season by far. I loved the whole website coming alive storyline. ("What is a Jim?")

El Padrino said...

i gotta remember to dvr that show
but i missed 2 seasons so what's the point

blue said...

with each episode now, I imagine Mills being Dwight.

Beth, if you can, you should check out the deleted scenes on NBC.com sometimes they are hilarious.

blue said...

a full hour of the office just feels right....

Beth said...

Blue, I've got the 1st 3 seasons on DVD and have watched many of the deleted scenes from those. Are the ones you're talking about from this season?

tem said...

still have never seen even 1 minute of the office.

ToddPacker said...

$1,000,000 bet against the jets was funny

blue said...

"Are the ones you're talking about from this season?"

yeah, this season...after each episode, they put up the deleted scenes on NBC.com

ToddPacker said...

dwight trying to look tough popping baloons was great

El Padrino said...

anyone know that move quote?

blue said...

which movie quote

El Padrino said...

I wish

I had

more time.

blue said...

It's familiar to me

blue said...

back to the future (s)

tem said...

oddly it is also familiar to me.

tem said...

the time machine?

blue said...

whilst watching the office last night, there was a part where Andy made a comment "i can't tell if he's really agreeing with me or just mocking me" when Jim was mocking him.

I thought, here is a perfect example of why we need the (s) in everyday conversations.

El Padrino said...

Negative.

three hints.

recent movie, last 3 years maybe

dakota

mexico city

tem said...

ET?

tem said...

ET was before i read the hint.

blue said...

i read that line, like bill shatner would have said it in Star Trek

blue said...

what if the clue said...Denzel?

tem said...

i also read it like shatner would have said it.

El Padrino said...

blue is warm

tem said...

tem is at a distinct disadvantage here.

tem said...

is it out of time?

tem said...

is that even a movie?

blue said...

man on fire

El Padrino said...

Begin scene:
Creasy has rectally inserted a five minute time bomb into Fuentes].

Fuentes: A last wish, please, please. Please.

Creasy: Last wish? I wish you had more time.

blue said...

I think somebody, maybe EP, used that quote on here the other day.

El Padrino said...

yes. and i've seen it a dozen times, i just love it

El Padrino said...

it was me, it's been on cable lately so i've been watching it alot

El Padrino said...

A man can be an artist... in anything, food, whatever. It depends on how good he is at it. Creasey's art is death. He's about to paint his masterpiece.

El Padrino said...

He'll deliver more justice in a weekend than ten years of your courts and tribunals.

blue said...

creasy is good, but I think i'd rather have the dude from the transporter be my kid's bodyguard.

tem said...

Hey, Out of Time is a movie with Denzel in it.

blue said...

and I hope to gawd, that my kid doens't turn out as annoying as dakota fanning.

blue said...

was Out of Time the one where Denzel was the chief of police in some small town in Florida?

blue said...

Denzel has some top notch movies...Training Day

ToddPacker said...

didn't see out of time

blue said...

most of denzel's movies just blur together for me...distinct ones are Glory, Training Day, and Remember the Titans.

ToddPacker said...

or man on fire

ToddPacker said...

philadelphia was a little different

Big Brother's Brother said...

personally, i'd want detective John Kimble as my kid's bodyguard

blue said...

looking at his list of credits, I take that back, I forgot about He got game, and the hurricane

blue said...

Crimson Tide

El Padrino said...

out of time was with eva mendes, police cheif in florida

denzel is quality and one fine ass motherfucker according to the ladies

american gangster looks solid

Big Brother's Brother said...

MoF - good stuff

i liked Inside Man as well

El Padrino said...

Arnie ref = always a good time

El Padrino said...

every denzel movie solid

cept for devil in blue dress or whatever that one is

blue said...

"personally, i'd want detective John Kimble as my kid's bodyguard"

he uses a farret to calm down the kids...a farrett...which is like a weasel..or some type of symbolism

El Padrino said...

But Wade Phillips this week told me something that I think a lot of coaches around the league and a lot of people around the league are still thinking, and that is, 'Hey, New England was caught cheating, and it is a black mark on their success.' "



Take the pats, this is going right on the bulletin board. Moron.

ToddPacker said...

ep has a man crush

blue said...

Wade Phillips knew his team wasn't going to win anyway...the original 81 even knows it.

El Padrino said...

roles denzel turned down, good stuff

ToddPacker said...

denzel would have been good in most of those parts that he turned down

Big Brother's Brother said...

ep enjoys the comfort of a big strong black man

El Padrino said...

"denzel would have been good in most of those parts that he turned down"

stop flirting with my man

Big Brother's Brother said...

im glad he turned those down

Big Brother's Brother said...

Blade woulda been hilarious

Keith S said...

EP
I rejected that trade because I didn't realize how awful Lee Evans is, and I figure Fitz/CJ/VJ > RW/Northcutt/VJ/Evans

Keith S said...

Bob Evans > Lee Evans

El Padrino said...

OK KEEEEEEFFFFF

no prob bob

blue said...

Lee Evans is struggling mightily

ToddPacker said...

i think he would have been good in seven

Keith S said...

Dbags/Rox is on at 10pm EST tonight. Awesome.

Keith S said...

"i think he would have been good in seven"

Lee Evans?

ToddPacker said...

lee evans would have been great in 7

Big Brother's Brother said...

Bob. there wouldve been banana bread in the box instead of that bitch's melon.

ToddPacker said...

i didn't notice... was the roof open last night

ToddPacker said...

"banana bread"



hahhahahahhahahhaaaa

Big Brother's Brother said...

could beisbol have teams left that people could care less about? execs are sweating day and night hoping Boston makes it in..

El Padrino said...

roof was open

ToddPacker said...

the scoreboard was messed up on my hd feed.... looks like they corrected it after a few innings.... blue, did you have the same problem, i know you have directv

ToddPacker said...

"could beisbol have teams left that people could care less about? execs are sweating day and night hoping Boston makes it in.."


yeah... they lost some big markets (ny, philly, la and chicago) in the 1st round

El Padrino said...

Indians are a nice story. and they can release bugs for ratings if anything

ToddPacker said...

yankee fans crying over the bugs was funny

ToddPacker said...

100

Keith S said...

"could beisbol have teams left that people could care less about? execs are sweating day and night hoping Boston makes it in.."

Yeah maybe they should just retract all the teams that are in cities with < 4 million people.

El Padrino said...

keef has small town syndrome

Big Brother's Brother said...

"Yeah maybe they should just retract all the teams that are in cities with < 4 million people."

thats a start!

El Padrino said...

half day today, leaving at nnnoooooonnnn

Keith S said...

"keef has small town syndrome"

Phoenix metro area has about 3.5 million

Keith S said...

I just get tired of the same teams in it every year.

El Padrino said...

3.5MM people in the staten island mall on a saturday

El Padrino said...

i hear ya tho

Keith S said...

Wow, big mall.

El Padrino said...

Not exactly.

Keith S said...

I can't wait for the first chicken comment today.

(S)

Keith S said...

Oh yeah, IT'S FRIDAYYYYYY!!!

El Padrino said...

friday lull

Keith S said...

Everyone must have been up late last night watching the baseball game.


(S)

Keith S said...

ep
I forgot to thank you for rejecting those trade offers I sent you involving Eli & Bulger.

JFreak said...

Vince Young has a tatoo of a rose bush on his arm.

Because he's a fruit.

El Padrino said...

what were those again?
it wasnt just eli for bulger

tem said...

HUngRY

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I sang a great song in the shower this morning. It was a fucking certified hit.

El Padrino said...

you write your own songs?

Keith S said...

I think one was Eli & CJ for Roy & Bulger

El Padrino said...

well there ya go
i still wouldnt do that

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The Office had me rollin' last night.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Maybe we should get a bell. Or a whistle.

Jim: Or a gong.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

In my trunk there are several pelts. On the right side, under the smallest pelt, there is a bear horn. Go get it.

Keith S said...

"well there ya go
i still wouldnt do that"

Well you don't have Bulger anymore do you?

blue said...

kidnapping the pizza delivery guy made me laugh

El Padrino said...

well no, trade him for bob evans

blue said...

deke-

when Andy serenaded Angela in 3 part harmony with the other guys on speakerphone, I about lost it....

Keith S said...

I'd take some Bob Evans right now.

El Padrino said...

A mom bought guns and bomb equipment to indulge her 14-year-old son who was a social outcast, a prosecutor said today. Michele Cossey is accused of allowing the boy to prepare for a "Columbine-like" attack on a school. Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor Jr. said: "This is not the best parenting I've ever seen."


lead story CNN

WTF mom!

isiah thomas said...

Let me add Ricochet to the list of good Denzel movies.

Keith S said...

I don't even need to watch TV. I get full recaps @ LoV.

El Padrino said...

keef u sure Roy straight up wont work for you

i got a real hard on for Fitzy

Keith S said...

This is not the best parenting I've ever seen.


You think?

isiah thomas said...

Dwight telling the pizza guy he was going to punch him in the throat was hysterical.

Keith S said...

I'll send you a picture of him and you can take care of that problem.

isiah thomas said...

anyone mentioned Denzel in Malcom X. Love that movie.

You been had, huh, you been took....you been bamboozled.

blue said...

EP likes fitz's dreads

blue said...

I need to update PTP...i almost forgot.

Keith S said...

Kurt Warner loves Fitz, too. That benefits me.

El Padrino said...

well u see where i was headed with that then

moving on.....

Keith S said...

Very sneaky.

blue said...

ok PTP updated.

blue said...

Sounds like Travis Henry will get another month at least of playing time before his suspension happens.

El Padrino said...

peace ya'll

Keith S said...

Do I start Garrard or Culpepper this week?

isiah thomas said...

the Rockies lineup 1-7 is stout.

I'd love to see Boston win.

a "rox-n-sox" WS, ESPN would run that ship into the ground.

blue said...

reading henry's statement as part of his lawsuit.

"If I fail this test, I will be suspended for one year from my employment, and will be obliged to repay all signing bonuses paid to date"

I don't think obliged is the right word...i think obligated.

blue said...

maybe obliged is the right word..looked it up, but it still sounds weird.

Keith S said...

oblige - to bind morally or legally, as by a promise or contract.

isiah thomas said...

obliged is better than "honkies gone make me pay back my scrilla, homie don't play dat"

blue said...

it would have been better if he said he had "mouths to feed"

isiah thomas said...

"Diapers be expensive yo"

Keith S said...

Mouths to feed and babies' mommas to pay.

blue said...

henry makes it sound like he has to give back all of his signing bonus...the paper here said he'd only have to give back like 1.2M of his 6M bonus if this delays until the middle of november...but, he won't be getting his 6M bonus in April

Keith S said...

tps must be a monster today.

blue said...

people are openly thumbing their noses at the LoV friday rule in regards to TPS

JFreak said...

Boar

Dumb

tem said...

i liked Denzel in that civil war movie...ummm whatever it was called.

blue said...

Glory

Big Brother's Brother said...

Amistad

Keith S said...

Glory was good.

blue said...

Glory was his "big break"..I think he won an academy award

Keith S said...

I thought his big break was Carbon Copy.

(S)

isiah thomas said...

I enjoyed The Pelican Brief.

I said it.

isiah thomas said...

re: Bol-bee Bowwwden

I peeped game on a WF player out run all of FSU's LB's and DB's for a TD.

oh how the mighty have fallen.

blue said...

I don't think I ever watched the Pelican Brief...I'll read grisham's books but the movies are always poor...exception "A time to Kill"

Keith S said...

I'm a big fan of A Time to Kill. Never read the book, though.

JFreak said...

I hate bees.

isiah thomas said...

my motto is :

"why read when you can watch"

blue said...

Sam L. Jaxson was good in that movie.

isiah thomas said...

AND I HOPE HE BURN'S IN HELL!!!!!111!!!

blue said...

re: bowden

shamhoff thinks that he should retire and that Richt would come coach FSU.

I think GA is a more attractive coaching option than FSU...dude isn't leaving there.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

For my Office peeps

isiah thomas said...

the old adage of "don't be the guy who replaces The Guy" applies to Bowden.

btw....did shammy get TMQ'd this week?

blue said...

I didn't put up a TMQ this week...i'm letting it simmer down..let his peeps think that he "fixed" the problem

isiah thomas said...

I forgot about Michael calling Angela short names.

Booster seat was good.

tem said...

TPS owns my soul for another 3 days.

tem said...

blue, you read books?

you just lost points there. minus 10 helmet stickers.

blue said...

read books...past tense

tem said...

tense is hard to follow on a blog for a work like "read"

helmet stickers reinstated.

tem said...

i heard bowden is going to go to Penn State to replace Peterno because Penn State wants to get a bit younger....but not too young.

blue said...

one of the office deleted scenes dwight's "interview" is funny

tem said...

keeping with my "never watched one minute of the office" streak i will not watch the deleted scenes.

ToddPacker said...

tps does not know it's friday

tem said...

i told TPS it was friday and it told me to fuck off.

ToddPacker said...

tps can be rude

ToddPacker said...

why are florida and georgia not included in the pic on the main page of the wwl?.... maybe they were kicked out of the SEC

blue said...

I don't think the commish visited Florida and Georgia

blue said...

vandy isn't on there either

ToddPacker said...

no kentucky either

tem said...

he is not welcome there.

isiah thomas said...

why are florida and georgia not included in the pic on the main page of the wwl?.... maybe they were kicked out of the SEC

I'm not sure about Georgia, but I think Florida is only included in NFL stuff.

isiah thomas said...

IT'S THE SEC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ToddPacker said...

people the heat up fish in the office microwave should be kilt

ToddPacker said...

*that

blue said...

microwave fish is awful

Mills said...

deke-

when Andy serenaded Angela in 3 part harmony with the other guys on speakerphone, I about lost it....
------------
that was the highlight of the night, i agree.

Keith S said...

"people the heat up fish in the office microwave should be kilt"

I agree with that. People here also burn popcorn in the microwave all the time.
