Happy New Year!

And yes, I did use the highly original title that I thought of last week. It makes me dependable to use it, because I said I would. Which is funny because yesterday instead of coming home and meeting fmtem for dinner I got drunk with a coworker. Then I lied about it, but was too drunk to lie very well. I think I got in minor trouble, but what are you going to do? It's a new year now, so I can say I haven't done anything like that since last year. (which fmtem says I can also use as my excuse for calling off our wedding.)

So the new year at LOV means it is time to raise our game. I think we can elevate this place to D+. Maybe just a solid D. The days of D- are so yesterday. I don't have the slightest clue how to accomplish this. I am hoping that grade inflation takes care of it for us.

Better throw in some column staples now:

NASCAR half sentence .......starts in about 8 weeks.

Unspeakable addition: The chick from Hot Shots assuming she still looks as good. I watched that some on sunday. That movie does not hold up as well as Hot Shots 2, but the chick is still hot.

NHL Update: Detroit still has the most points, they must be the best.

Well what is a New Year's column without some resolutions?? We are going to find out because I am not going to list any. I thought about it, but other than watching El Pad's top 50 movies all the rest are crap like lose weight and crap like that. I don't want to post such a list.

OK, about time to wrap this up. Not a great start to the New Year really column wise, but that just means it can only get better.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year's Eve and I hope that this New Year is good for everyone. Unless I hate you, then I hope it isn't too good.

First comment on the first post of the new year.

That's the way it goes, bitches!

The Rev said...

OK, that was a little too easy to do. Probably not a big deal.

I'm working on the radio today. I'm the idiot that volunteered to work on New Years Day.

Keith S said...

And deke calls me the poacher

The Rev said...

I now have the most LOV comments in 2008.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"And deke calls me the poacher"

I was just thinking that.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Pad your lead in the TIT.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Miller Lite #1- open.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

now I have the most

The Rev said...

Oh wait a minute.. Meiz had like 6 comments on the last post marked 08.

Ah screw it. It was a delusion of grandeur.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Traffic reports?

The Rev said...

Yep.

Keith S said...

Can you play some Holy Diver for us?

Keith S said...

Who's going to list the lines for round 2 of the TCS?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

We need a match up update, too.

And pregame analysis

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Awesome. Heavy snow at the hockey game

The Rev said...

Wonder how the players feel about the snow.

Are they loving it, or bitching about it?

The Rev said...

Goal in the first 21 seconds. Wow!

That puck is slowing up on the ice due to that snow.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

This is the 1st time I've bothered to see Heisbow.


I hope he wins today.

JFreak said...

So much food.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Having people over?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Jorts is letting me down

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Jorts!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tebow sucks

blue said...

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

usc cheerleaders are so hooott

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Slow day for all the football.

Beth said...

Damn, I thought it would be an easy win for Georgia but even I didn't think it would be THIS easy.

Jugdish said...

FINALLY...jugdish has come back...to LOV!

Jugdish said...

Beth...congrats on the engagement!

Jugdish said...

Zeke quit huh? odd.

Jugdish said...

I had a blast in NYC!

Jugdish said...

We threw a new years party the other night...started getting sick on that afternoon.

Jugdish said...

sore throat and all.

Jugdish said...

I was able to get drunk, but got a fever around 2 am and spent all day in bed for the most part yesterday...no sexy time

Jugdish said...

I feel better today, although I am dragging ass some. Sucky time to be sick.

Jugdish said...

So I'm hoping its a slow week at work this week for TCS purposes.

Jugdish said...

Is there anything else I am missing from the last week other than Beth getting engaged and Zeke quitting?

Jugdish said...

I don't want to do my homework.

El Padrino said...

jug thanks for stopping by

Jugdish said...

No problem...it was a great time!

Jugdish said...

crowded as hell, but we expected it so it wasn't a bother.

Jugdish said...

We stayed in a hotel called Amsterdam Court on 50th about two blocks from Radio City Music Hall.

El Padrino said...

yeah every year more and more people, i'm oblivious

Jugdish said...

small ass rooms, but great location, and we weren't in the hotel much.

El Padrino said...

oh ok, i know that place
never stayed there but i know exactly where it is

El Padrino said...

tiny rooms i would think no?

El Padrino said...

nevermind.

Jugdish said...

I learned you have to walk with a purpose really fast. If you want to stop and figure out where you want to eat or whatever...fo into a store or something.

Jugdish said...

fo = go

Jugdish said...

We found a cheaper bar called The Blarney Stone to drink at, and we went there the last three nights we were there.

Jugdish said...

In Little Italy we ate at Cafee Napoli.

Jugdish said...

We went to Times Square, Top of the Rock, Stature of Liberty, all the tourism stuff.

Jugdish said...

Did the hop on hop off tour.

El Padrino said...

top of the rock is really nice

must walk or get out of the way

this us true
you will get stomped

Jugdish said...

From what I could tell there were two company's doing the hop on hop off tour...grayline and citysights.

El Padrino said...

blarney stone on 48th ?
i get my st patty's day lunch there
the line is around the block for the corn beef

Jugdish said...

they made the same stops, but grayline had like 4 times the amount of buses.

El Padrino said...

i dont pay attention to those buses but i think your right

i wanna say there is one more company but not sure

El Padrino said...

midtown irish bars, you could never go wrong

Jugdish said...

We went with citysights though...so on some of the stops no one would get off. We would not get off on those stops because we thought we'd never get back on another bus.

Jugdish said...

Yeah...right off 48th just off the beaten path. We drank a lot of Blue Moon over there.

Watched the Pats Giants game there, must be a Jets neighborhood as no one was really into the game.

Jugdish said...

We hit up another one called Scruffy Duffy.

El Padrino said...

great burgers too

Jugdish said...

We tried to hit up a different bar each night, but it was usually a 6 dollar drink at a new bar, then we headed over to the Blarney Stone.

El Padrino said...

ah the scruffy duffy
good times

happy hour gets nuts in there
they still have the pool table?
havent been there in over a year

El Padrino said...

good call

Jugdish said...

They had a pool table in the back.

We at pizza at Famiglia's, Tuscany Cafe, Ray's (in Times Square), Pax, and I had some at Cafee Napoli.

Jugdish said...

The only chain restaurant we ate at was O'Charley's for a quick appetizer before Spamalot, only because we were pressed for time.

Jugdish said...

Shubert Theater on 42nd is where we saw Spamalot.

Jugdish said...

I think I like the pizza at Pax the best.

El Padrino said...

ray's in times square is awful and pax is more of a sandwhich place

but at least you went down to little italy

Jugdish said...

You know Zeke is still reading this blog.

Hi Zeke.

He is the new "Hi Bill".

Jugdish said...

Yeah...Ray's wasn't that good...I was kind of regretting it before I even took a bite.

El Padrino said...

awful, i get so mad at the pizzerias around there because they are just there for tourists

not one ny'er gets pizza from any of those places

bella napoli on 48th is good, i should have mentioned that

Jugdish said...

We also carred a flask with us where ever we went for the most part. We aren't alcoholics, but its nice to have a quick rum and coke when you're out walking around.

Jugdish said...

I don't have a flask with me now...fyi.

Keith S said...

Someone deleted some comments from last night. I had 2 comments deleted, and that "mileage" character from shammy's posted a couple comments that were deleted

El Padrino said...

flask keeps you warm

no doubt

El Padrino said...

keef your up early

Keith S said...

Maybe deke deleted them

Keith S said...

cuz mileage had a brewers pic and I said in both my deleted comments that it was probably a friend of deke's

Keith S said...

the power is going to his head

Keith S said...

"keef your up early"

TCS will do that to you


s

Jugdish said...

bastards!

Keith S said...

jug
NASA went to hell in a hand basket when you were in NYC

Jugdish said...

I know...I leave for a few days and the whole operation goes in the shitter.

Keith S said...

I'm goin to the OU/WVU game today, so I took the day off.

Keith S said...

So I've got some time to build my lead against deke

Keith S said...

Unless he starts deleting my comments

Jugdish said...

Deke is in office now...he might change.

Keith S said...

The 2nd round is less crazy than the 1st round

Jugdish said...

When does round 2 go through?

Jugdish said...

I could get up to go to the bathroom for 5 minutes and iam could log on and post 50 posts.

Jugdish said...

Is Dick Clark still alive, or is that a robot?

Keith S said...

Round 2 goes thru Friday night

Jugdish said...

So Zeke took his round one loss pretty hard huh?

Jugdish said...

100?

Keith S said...

Seeing DC was bad. I don't think he's still alive.

Jugdish said...

YES!

Jugdish said...

I kept looking for strings holding him up, but I think they were able to edit them out.

Keith S said...

They had Jeff Dunham, that ventriloquist guy, working with DC's body

Jugdish said...

Rosie O'Donnell was voted the most annoying celebrity in America.

They needed a vote for that?

Jugdish said...

They should dress up Caliendo as DC next year.

Keith S said...

Caliendo does impressions?

Jugdish said...

On occasion

Jugdish said...

His impressions would be more believable if he lost about 50 pounds.

Jugdish said...

or grew about 5 inches.

Keith S said...

Anyone see that guy jump his motorcycle over the football field?

El Padrino said...

i saw the highlights

Jugdish said...

I missed that one.

Keith S said...

"I missed that one."

So it wasn't you?

Jugdish said...

No...I'd have seen it if it was me.

Keith S said...

I went golfing yesterday and we had about 30mph winds the whole round. Not good times.

El Padrino said...

impressive

Keith S said...

I shot a 107. I wanted to break every club

Jugdish said...

I would be happy with a 107...obviously I don't golf much.

Keith S said...

"I would be happy with a 107...obviously I don't golf much."

It was a shorter course. Par was 65.

blue said...

"Anyone see that guy jump his motorcycle over the football field?"

yes, i was less than impressed, although I thought at one point that he tipped forward too early and was going to crash....i tivo'd it because I wasn't about to sit and watch Mark Schlereth tell me about motorcycle jumping for an hour.

blue said...

Wind sucks..unless you're using it to create electricity or for a sail boat or something. other than that it's useless

Keith S said...

WFT was Mark Schlereth doing announcing a bike jump?

blue said...

good win for your boys yesterday EP...

heisbow is a fraud

blue said...

"WFT was Mark Schlereth doing announcing a bike jump?"

he got a free trip to Vegas? I don't know why he was there...maybe because he has the highest quality education amongst all ESPN reporters.

blue said...

I think Colt Brennan just got sacked again...

blue said...

and fuck the Rosebowl for picking Illinois over UGA...that would have been a hell of a game, instead we're left with two duds.

blue said...

UM looked like they opened up the offense quite a bit. Played Henne out of the gun a bunch. Maybe Rich Rod secretly installed his offense and was coaching the team.

Keith S said...

"and fuck the Rosebowl for picking Illinois over UGA...that would have been a hell of a game, instead we're left with two duds."

Yes!!! And WVU would have played in the Sugar Bowl instead, and I could have sold my tickets easier.

Keith S said...

Do we have 4 shutouts going right now?

Jugdish said...

I have watched almost no bowl games over the last few weeks.

I saw bits and pieces of the Tennessee/Wisconsin game yesterday.

Jugdish said...

What are the other match ups?

I wish I was matched up with Zeke this week.

Jugdish said...

hi zeke

blue said...

we refer to him as "the quitter"

Jugdish said...

I bet Zeke creates a new account and becomes a lemming on Shammy's site.

El Padrino said...

yeah the rose bowl was never interesting no matter how bad musberger tried

Jugdish said...

cmzeke

tem said...

so i guess the TCS started like 2.5hrs ago.

blue said...

tem is frustrated by the TCS

Jugdish said...

Something like that.

blue said...

i don't even know who i'm matched up against.

maybe freak?

Keith S said...

Yeah, what are the matchups? And the early betting lines never came out.

Jugdish said...

tem created tcs

tem said...

matchups are:

FH (+100) vs Jug

EP (-50) vs Tem

Deke (+15) vs Keith

Freak (+40) vs Blue

I suck at making up lines. Deal with it.

blue said...

Iam vs Jug

EP vs Tem

Deke vs Keef

Freak vs Blue

Keith S said...

So Reggie Bush is fuckin Kim K huh? Good for him.

blue said...

"So Reggie Bush is fuckin Kim K huh? Good for him."

rumor on the street (sources have confirmed) that they got engaged recently as well.

tem said...

yeah that is why he is not any good anymore.

tem said...

women weaken legs. cold. hard. fact.

El Padrino said...

ass ruins football players

ask romo

El Padrino said...

i2i with tem

Jugdish said...

I won the toilet bowl in my fantasy league = first pick in the draft next year.

tem said...

damn today is going slow.

El Padrino said...

atta boy!

El Padrino said...

toooo slow

tem said...

also tem is tired today.

blue said...

hopefully this isn't me in 22 years

Jugdish said...

There is a new post up by the way...I am dominating it.

Keith S said...

"hopefully this isn't me in 22 years"

He's 57. You're 35?

blue said...

these polar bear people are fucking crazy

blue said...

"He's 57. You're 35?"

no, the daughter was 22, that's what I was going by.
