Today's Post - With Doppler 10,003

So Doppler 10,003 says the Rockies are going to win the World Series in 6. Frankly I am a little shocked at this decision, but the Doppler is never wrong. I axed the Doppler why it picked the Rockies and it said that the Cali wildfires are sure to keep the fire burning in Colorado and bring a title home. I don't think the Doppler is very good with geography. Anyway, you heard it here first, Doppler 10,003 picks the Rockies in 6.

I'd talk about the NFL some, but my $$$ fantasy team was sabotaged by a terrible "if only" week. A 5 point loss with Kenny Watson on my bench. 'Nuff said. I am looking into firing my manager. I wonder if Joe Torre wants to change from baseball to FFB.

In NHL news looking at the standings it looks like Ottawa is a pretty good team. I think one sentence is all the NHL news we can take, so I will stop right there. More news next week.

In NASCAR news Mayfield is replacing

Well I figure about 1/2 a sentence is all LOV can stand about NASCAR.

Really this part is just for Rev, you need to do a weekend post so all of your fans can find out what you are up to.

Really this part is just for Cumfast, you know you have more fun over here than over at Shamford's place.

Really this part is just for Blue, like 4 more weeks and all the fun will be sucked out of your life. Ask TP about it, or ask his kids about it, they all went through it.

Really this part is just for Deke, bring what you can to the table today it will be good enough.

Really this part is just for Beth, where were you yesterday? I hope you out gathering up friends to post.

Really this part is just for El Pad, did you pass those series whatever tests you took like a year ago.

Really this part is just for Tyler, excellent work on TDiLH. It reminds us of things like El Pad's series whatever tests.

Really this part is just for Zeke, have you started thinking that "maybe Michigan can get to the Rose Bowl" yet? If not you should be.

Really this part is for anyone else I didn't specifically mention, blah blah blah blah, you're cool too. I'd do a sentence for everyone, but this post is already getting pretty long.

Alright, it's about time to wrap this up with a returning favorite of mine and a movie review:

Returning to the show this week after a long hiatus is another addition to the list of girls that I would do unspeakable things to. And remember folks, unspeakable for me <<<<<<<< unspeakable for El Pad. Anyway, the girl who gets added today is Whoopi Goldberg. Haha, no seriously, it is Kristen Bell. She might not be drop dead gorgeous, but she looks like she'd be into tem level unspeakable things. Congratulations Kristen, now go gossip with fellow unspeakable list girls such as Jenna Von Oy, Jewel Staite, Reese Witherspoon, Alicia Silverstone, the chick from Transformers (assuming she is 18, I think her name is Megan Fox) and some other chicks I can't remember right now. The list in still in its infancy and always looking for more chicks.

And finally the tem movie review of a movie tem hasn't even seen yet. I really couldn't decide what movie to review, so I figured I'd fire up imdb.com and look at their top 250. The first movie on that thing that was made after 1990 that I haven't seen is what the review will be about today. I hope it is a good one. Oh and let's add that its in English too.

The Silence of The Lambs is today's movie.

This movie is a prequel to Babe. It stars that same old dude as a farmer and he has some lambs that just won't shut up, this is pretty much where they got the title from. Anyway, the lambs are always out in the field talking about all sorts of random shit. I think Queen Latifa is the voice for one of the lambs. Anyway, the farmer can't understand the lambs and actually hardly ever says a word himself, but they keep him up at night with all their noise so he's gotta silence them. Instead of doing the obvious thing and shooting them he decides that he will hire a wolf to take care of the problem (and in the process claim the insurance money for the kilt lambs). I'm not quite sure how he communicated with the wolf, but I decided to suspend my disbelief and go with it. Also, I should note that since this movie the wolf has fallen on hard times. He was last seen in a Jeep Liberty commercial. But I digress. Anyway, so the wolf "silences" the lambs but instead of money the farmer dude gets new lambs. It turns out he was illiterate, I guess some farmers are, and never really read the policy. Also a pig came with the lambs, which sets up the movie Babe.

Well this movie wasn't very gory, nothing exploded and there was no poon, so the best it can get is 1.5 helmet stickers, and that is exactly what it gets.

OK I'm done.

you seriously didn't see silence of the lambs?

you can probably create a website of movies you didnt see, i bet it would be riveting

El Padrino said...

spiff you got a light?

Big Brother's Brother said...

this post makes me smile.

El Padrino said...

i'm on the kristen bell train, however may i remind you she's a vegetarian, so with that said she may not enjoy meat

if you know what im sayin

El Padrino said...

isnt she veronica mars?

El Padrino said...

"Colorado Rockies officials planned to relaunch their sale of World Series tickets Tuesday after the team said its first attempt to sell tickets online was stopped by an "external malicious attack."

tem said...

yeah she is veronica mars.

tem said...

the lack of meat eating is a turn off, but i'd get over it.

El Padrino said...

tem pull up a list of like the top 100 movies of all time or the most popular movies and next post copy and paste them and say whether or not you've seen them

or not.

El Padrino said...

i would make her change her name to veronica mars permanetely

i like it better

tem said...

the website of movies i have not seen would be amazingly long.

tem said...

el pad i2i, i am working on it right now.

i am using imdb's top 250.

El Padrino said...

sweet

El Padrino said...

i would be highly disapppointed if one of those were Goodfellas, Bronx Tale, Casino or Scarface.

The Godfather I can barely excuse simply because it came out like 20 years ago.

El Padrino said...

peeped Knocked Up it was good/funny but not hilarious.....

tem said...

Bronx Tale and Scarface, never seen.

El Padrino said...

tem i wouldnt bother with pre-1980 movies, that might save you some time

El Padrino said...

"Bronx Tale and Scarface, never seen."

you are shamed.

tem said...

the number in front is imdb's top 250 ranking. the year in parentheses is the year it came out....obviously.

tem said...

i should have dropped the pre-1980ish movies and the foreign ones, but it was easy to cut n paste and edit.

tem said...

i know what scarface is about and who stars in it, i know very little about the bronx tale thing you speak of.

tem said...

that list is like a 5 scroller....damn

tem said...

oh damn, i have seen 214 The Lion King.

tem said...

Aliens is very embarrassing to have never seen as well...and the Terminators.

Big Brother's Brother said...

no fight club or memento, ouch.

blue said...

tem is fun

blue said...

I've never seen the original terminator, i don't think

fight club is a worthy rental

El Padrino said...

bbb there are alot of gems missing

blue said...

rent American History X right now...do it, don't even think about not doing it

El Padrino said...

"Top 250 movies as voted by our users"


this says it all

blue said...

saving private ryan is shocking

and I can't believe that the schools in WV don't make you watch to kill a mockingbird since you can't read it

Beth said...

As shocked as I am that tem has never seen Silence of the Lambs, I'm actually glad he hasn't cause his movie review cracked me up.

Big Brother's Brother said...

"Top 250 movies as voted by our users"

yeah i wondered how Super Bad made it on there..

Big Brother's Brother said...

'180 Groundhog Day (1993)'


you dont have cable either?

tem said...

i can't explain why i haven't seen movies like groundhog day.

tem said...

i haven't seen a Christmas Story either.

tem said...

They tried to make me read To Kill A Mockingbird, but I just read the cliff notes and sat next to the smart girl on test day.

tem said...

and in class i would always just say "i didn't quite understand....." and that would count as participating in class.

tem said...

if anyone else has a better top 100 list, i'll put that one up. the imdb is the only one i know of off the top of my head.

blue said...

the smart girl in West Virginny...she had got an SAT score of 610

"yes, over 600, that's awesome"

blue said...

the smart girl in WV is the one who figured out how a condom works, and only has 2 kids by the time she's 18

blue said...

she's the one who is only missing one of her 2 front teeth

blue said...

WV > Dan Patrick

Tyler said...

Wow. Excellent work.

ToddPacker said...

tem's list is amazing

blue said...

the smoke woke tyler up early today

blue said...

Beth-

how was augusta?

El Padrino said...

total film's top 100

Tyler said...

So I posted this last night, but only got a response from Freak. I'm a commish in a keeper league and there's a trade that I have to approve or deny. Frank Gore for Deion Branch, Vincent Jackson and Roethlisberger. Advice?

Tyler said...

Oh and I only ended up with four shits yesterday. I struggled in the second half of the day. I don't know how Deke does it.

El Padrino said...

about a year ago, i made one myself

El Padrino said...

put it through, jackson is worthless so it's really a banged up Branch and a nice qb for a very good RB, despite the sucktitude of the niners

Big Brother's Brother said...

good ass list, EP

Beth said...

"Beth - how was augusta?"

Boring as always and my relatives were even older of course, so it wasn't exactly a vacation weekend.

But on the positive side, I did get world series tix yesterday.

ToddPacker said...

El Padrino said...

flight's 5:20, game should end by 3:30....avoiding traffic would be wise if we are to make that flight

jugdish said...

Better?

blue said...

of course jug is back...the shuttle is ready for launch

he's a go for LoV

El Padrino said...

HAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH

jugdish said...

Cabbing it would be wise. I was dropped off at the stadium last time I was there and it worked really well.

tem said...

"tem you referring to my list i;e the 61 number?

ToddPacker said...

El Padrino said...

not for nuttin but my list is awesome and still holds water a year later

tem said...

i don't hate them, i just never saw them.

El Padrino said...

tem do you like the following?

violence
poker
fraternization
tits
guns
deceit
murder
kidnapping
cannibalism
blood
humor
war
prisons
planes
football


is yes to all rent those 47 movies

tem said...

i don't like being in prisons.

El Padrino said...

*if

El Padrino said...

ok so scratch Green Mile, even though it's awesome

46

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm doing a Temlist, too.

tem said...

ok i saved the list as movies i need to watch.

i will finish them all within 6 months.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

maybe not

tem said...

deke, have you seen them all?

El Padrino said...

i like the dedication

blue said...

Temlist is a new word...i like it

ToddPacker said...

i'm only missing 10 from the ep list

tem said...

tem is a good prefix.

jugdish said...

I think Rev's would look something like this:

1. Rocky
2. Rocky 2
3. Rocky 3
4. Rocky 4
5. Rocky Balboa
6. Supersize me

tem said...

he might have rocky V in his top 10 just because.

ToddPacker said...

jug you forgot the vince papale movie

El Padrino said...

looking at my list, it's time to bust out the libarary and re-watch some of these puppies

blue said...

and Purple Rain

Beth said...

First the philly article and now the Supersize comment. Jug is clearly on the (amusing) Rev attack today.

If Rev was a woman he'd probably be sitting at home sobbing tonight whimpering about how "mean" you are. :-)

blue said...

purple rain was in regards to Rev's list

jugdish said...

Dammit...I knew I was forgetting something. Never saw Purple Rain though.

jugdish said...

I'm being setup...its a target rich environment!

tem said...

poor rev, not here to defend himself.

jugdish said...

I guess we could add any Donovan McNabb Chunky soup commercial to Rev's list as well.

blue said...

the reggie white story

jugdish said...

Philadelphia Cream cheese commercials?

El Padrino said...

your all forgetting Invincible
i think rev whacked it inside the movie theater during the showing

jugdish said...

Wasn't the Fresh Prince of Bel Air from Philly too?

blue said...

TP mentioned the Vince Papale movie

blue said...

yeah, but i'm sure that rev liked DJ Jazzy Jeff better than the Fresh Prince

ToddPacker said...

more movies that should be on the rev list:

fried green tomaotoes
mystic pizza
fatso
jersey girl
big
(cheese) Stakeout
soul food
diner
philadelphia
the philadelphia story

El Padrino said...

all true tp, all true

Beth said...

Don't forget Gandhi in honor of Rev's wife.

El Padrino said...

hahah
ghandi

hahahaaa
funny

El Padrino said...

Bollywood

jugdish said...

Beth gets in the best shot of the day.

Think they are on the Ghandi diet?

tem said...

Who's the Toughest Official in Professional Sports?

Ed Hochuli vs Big John McArthey.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The pic of Rev is killing me.

And seriously, I was laughing hysterically at Keith's journey to 734 last night.

tem said...

i'm not sure where that came from.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Big John

El Padrino said...

tem you want hilarity
on my list of movies, in the comments section you have the AUDACITY to say things like "cant believe star wars is not on this list" type comments

that's funny

blue said...

734 is the number we call "rev" according to Keith...


that was funny shit

blue said...

regarding Kirsten Bell...I think she's gonna be on Heroes this season.

and she is definitely plowable

tem said...

AUDACITY is all caps is rough.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

That totalfilm list is junk too.

The AFI list is the one to use. except, you can't get to it.

tem said...

i still can't believe star wars isn't on the list.

if it were then that would be 1 less movie i'd have to watch.

tem said...

why is 734 rev?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

His hat size is 7 3/4

jugdish said...

Shuttle should be launching in 25 minutes. If anyone has access to NASA TV on their Direct TV or whatever you should tune it, its pretty cool to see. More detailed than watching on the news.

El Padrino said...

i hate star wars

El Padrino said...

it's not a secret

tem said...

i heard you can watch the launch on the interweb. something about google.

tem said...

Jug in Space

tem said...

jug why did you schedule the launch during my lunch time?

jugdish said...

NASA TV

jugdish said...

If you look closely, you'll be able to see me waving out of the window of the shuttle during the launch.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

NASA TV is up and running.

ToddPacker said...

you should wear a LoV spacesuit

jugdish said...

They ought to have audio on there, and they give stats about how fast it is traveling, how far it has gone, how much fuel it carries, how much has been burned, etc.

jugdish said...

I have a small LOV patch right on the rear end of my space suit, just below my left butt cheek right by my crack.

El Padrino said...

NASA tv is up and running for me as well, i'm pumped

NS

Beth said...

Jug, when exactly is the scheduled liftoff? I can't watch NASA tv full time but I want to see the liftoff.

El Padrino said...

9 minutes from 1 minute ago

El Padrino said...

so about 8 min......

tem said...

8 minutes into hungry time.

ToddPacker said...

i'm going out to the top of the parking garage to watch

jugdish said...

11:38 EST

tem said...

maybe i too will watch from outside.

jugdish said...

TP...how much can you see from where you are at?

tem said...

they could save some time by just saying "is all the shit working"

and then someone saying "yes"

Beth said...

Back in '91 I think it was my family was visiting Disney when the shuttle went off. Even from that far away it was amazingly impressive to see it in the sky. Cars were pulled off the side of the road to watch.

jugdish said...

I asked them if we could pull an LOV banner on the back...no go.

Beth said...

Sounds like they're in a hold now.

tem said...

just spraypaint it on the side.

jugdish said...

i2i with Beth...I have seen it from Orlando before. VERY cool. I'd like to go down for a luanch before they end the program.

ToddPacker said...

no too much.... you can see a clear line of smoke/exhaust once it gets high enough.... it's gotta be a clear day, though.... it usually looks better during early morning liftoffs

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

riveting

tem said...

i've only watched one launch and it did not go well.

maybe i shouldn't watch this one.

Spaceman Spiff said...

fire is still blazing but has moved farther away from me, looks like ill have a full day of work today, damn

tem said...

10 minutes? damn i'm never gonna make it.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Damn! a 10 minute countdown?

Tyler said...

Tem needs to sign up for one month of netflix's gold package or whatever gets him unlimited rentals, then take the month off and just watch movies.

El Padrino said...

T minus 9 minutes!!!

i'm so excited!

jugdish said...

Its not a verbal countdown deke.

El Padrino said...

peoples houses are burning down and spiff is worried about working a full day

i like where your heads at spiff

tem said...

i don't think i can take a whole month off without just getting fired.

ToddPacker said...

so, jug is LoVing from the cockpit... pretty cool

El Padrino said...

WEATHER REMAINS A GO!

El Padrino said...

just under 6 minutes

tem said...

have they contained the fire anymore spiff?

last i saw it was 0% contained.

tem said...

molly ringwald look a like just walked by my office.

it might have been her.

ToddPacker said...

i think i'm going outside to the garage with my keys.... roll it right into an early lunch

blue said...

so at what level are you in "outer" space...i mean there has to be like inner space, and regular space too right?

blue said...

purge sequenc 4

blue said...

I see smoke

blue said...

why do they say "t-minus" what's the "t"

jugdish said...

They have cameras attached the external tanks and solid rocket boosters. It doesn't even look like it is moving during the launch.

I've seen video of form the booster camera and tank camera after they seperate...bad ace!

blue said...

taking the top cone thing off was cool

isiah thomas said...

"walk on by" - y'all missed the joke.

keef and blue, loosen the top button after your 69 is over.

blue said...

and we're off

blue said...

jug put the throttle up

jugdish said...

4 and a half million pounds.

jugdish said...

2700 MPH

blue said...

5.3 million pounds of thrust is a lot

blue said...

so maybe this is a dumb question, but how come the shuttle doesn't create a sonic boom?

jugdish said...

It'll get you to where you need to go.

El Padrino said...

that was cool

jugdish said...

I'm pretty sure it does.

blue said...

you can see the ice falling off of it

blue said...

at least I hope that was ice

Spaceman Spiff said...

depends which fire tem

the whale's vagina one is out of control, 600 homes destroyed so far said on the news, shit load.

the one by me was supposed to be 30% contained, doesnt look like shit outside today so that may be true

jugdish said...

ice or foam

blue said...

that's cool seeing the earth get further and further away

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Well that was the most exciting part of my day.

blue said...

that was some good stuff

jug always brings the heat

Tyler said...

A friend of mine emailed this link to me. It'sa google map of the fires.

Tyler said...

Green means contained. Someone was axing about that before.

blue said...

I wish they had a camera inside the shuttle whilst it was taking off.

It would be funny to see if anyone acts like the guys in Armageddon

isiah thomas said...

*cyber standing O for all commenters today.

mission control is proud to welcome jug back also.

Tyler said...

Governator is sending aid, but mainly to the SD.
