No sports

The are no American professional sporting events today (Screw you, WNBA).

Out of solidarity I vote there be no post today.

Or I could just talk about the Tour de France and bore everyone but Beth.

Home Run Derby tonight. Be prepared for some "back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back" home run calls. I say Dan Uggla and Grady Sizemore are the finalists. The Ugg wins 7-4 in the final.

Remember last week when I talked about the Rays possibly winning the AL East and keeping bahston and nu yahwk out of the playoffs? Scratch that thought.

Since today's post generally has pictures, I decided to fire up google and find pictures of each person that posts here.

I'm neither black nor do I have hair. Inaccurate pictoral representation!!

H said...

Sox back in first. I know you're all happy about that

H said...

i bought a new TV this weekend.

H said...

NASCAR looks incredible in HD

El Padrino said...

incredibly funny

El Padrino said...

i forgot the all star game is here
no wonder why everything was more packed than usual

El Padrino said...

i really dont consider the Bronx "here" but I know those people aint stayin in no motherfucking bronx

El Padrino said...

2173 emails and I will read none of them

welcome back!

Beth said...

NASCAR looks incredible in HD but is still boring.

*fixed

Beth said...

And I'm not sure who should be more offended that Mize's pic is a hotter woman than my pic, me or Mize. :-)

El Padrino said...

i was so proud of my little cousin
he is 19 and he got head the first night

nice work cuzin

Beth said...

I did find many of the pics amusing though, especially Tyler's and EP's.

El Padrino said...

yeah how come meiz is pictured a s a woman

Beth said...

EP, do you mean your cousin just got head for the first time last night?

El Padrino said...

not sure it was his first time, guessing no, but first day on vacation

El Padrino said...

he stalked, he moved in, he killed

El Padrino said...

rockies stink

El Padrino said...

.5 games out

keef would have won

Tyler said...

Funny post.

blue said...

mets pitching is on fire

Tyler said...

I will be watching the HR Derby with the sound off so I will miss the "back, back, back...".

Tyler said...

Artest wants traded.

Beth said...

"guessing no, but first day on vacation"

So was this some guy he just met or knew from before? :-)

El Padrino said...

so long billy packer

Tyler said...

Artest will also act as his own agent. Let the awesomeness begin.

El Padrino said...

"So was this some guy he just met or knew from before? :-)"

wait a second
that's not how we roll
those are deke's cousins, not el pads

El Padrino said...

derby field is weak

Beth said...

"those are deke's cousins, not el pads"

Funny stuff, although I'm guessing deke won't think so...

El Padrino said...

but he did depict himself as a woman

El Padrino said...

deke, when i saw the brew crew's highlights last night i could have sworn Prince Fielder hit that homer, closer look showed fat ass CC running around the bases

i chuckled

nice win....

Beth said...

"but he did depict himself as a woman"

Actually freak did that - he and Mize switched posting days this week.

blue said...

"Artest will also act as his own agent. Let the awesomeness begin."


yeah, he made the statement that "not opting out of his contract was the biggest mistake of his life"

really? you mean a bigger mistake than running up into the stands and starting an all out brawl?

blue said...

the local news channel had their weekly sports wrapup show last night...they were showing Travis Henry highlights with the "cuz I got high" song playing in the background, it was slightly hilarity

El Padrino said...

freak posted?

things be crazy you

blue said...

WWL reader comment:

"I think this signing
was the best move for the Wiz."


in regards to Gil...gee, ya think?

El Padrino said...

fucking farve

blue said...

If i were the packers i'd let him come back and sit his ass on the bench. He's under contract so he really doesn't have a choice. Only problem is, that if they start to lose, the fans will start bitching about wanting favre to play.

blue said...

bring him back and make him the #3 QB and don't activate him on game days so he doesn't even get to dress or have a chance to play.

blue said...

wall?

El Padrino said...

"If i were the packers i'd let him come back and sit his ass on the bench. He's under contract so he really doesn't have a choice. Only problem is, that if they start to lose, the fans will start bitching about wanting favre to play."

not me, i aint paying 12MM to a 40 year old who's only going to make my young starting qb panic everytime he makes a bad throw

blue said...

I think if you put him on the bench, favre would quit, because he's a quitter

El Padrino said...

media would say he's a gamer
wants to be in there so bad

H said...

This whole Favre thing is ridiculous. Seriously it's been what? 4 or 5 years of this crap. Just retire and go away!

El Padrino said...

I should give it a shot

blue said...

power rankings are up

blue said...

luckily i pulled the data before the french bastards shut down the site this morning

El Padrino said...

maintenence

Keith S said...

Oh look. The Red Sux are back in 1st and H goes on another morning run.

El Padrino said...

keef i have a story for you

blue said...

i'm hoping tyler can post skip tracer volume 1 on wednesday

Keith S said...

"keef i have a story for you"

Does it involve NYC?

Keith S said...

Can the USofA get a Miss Universe rep who won't fall down? Jeezaloo

blue said...

yeah, cmblue was watching that last night and she came and told me taht the chick busted her ass. I asked her why she was watching the miss universe from last year, I was confused

El Padrino said...

"Does it involve NYC?"

no invloves O-H-I-O

Keith S said...

Oh ok. It won't be as good, then

blue said...

the anticipation for the OHIO story is building

blue said...

hilarity

Keith S said...

I'm no doubt intrigued

El Padrino said...

after this phone call

El Padrino said...

there was this pack of misfits at the resort while i was there

were in the ocean tossing the rock around (football) and over to our right these 4 guys, one old guy with a ponytail, and 3 boys seemingly college kids

while we were playing they were screaming O H, and the other meathead would scream I O. you know that silly buckeye chant

over and over again

then they were screaming about O state and all this other nonsense, so the ball ends up by them and he throws it back, then asks to join the catch, so we throw it back it forth and the old guy drops every single pass we throw to him

so i couldnt resist, i had to
i said you know if you were from Michigan you wouldnt be dropping all these passes

they laughed, the boys, however got a bit feisty, screamed OHIO more and more so I didnt back down, started screaming the michigan fight song and we went back and forth for awhile

I should mention that we were all pretty drunk

ok, fast forward to Friday, we come home, my aunt's bag is missing, she calls AA and they begin the search for the bag thinking it never left the island

phone rings, some guy from Lawng island accidentaly scooped my aunts bag and wants us to meet him halfway to pick it up

me and my uncle go

we wait for him, guy shows up and who gets out of the car?

the old ponytail dude with his son (one of those 4 boys), i'm like no fucking way

he's like DUDE, it's you.
I'm like aren't you from Ohio?
he's like no fucking way bro my son goes to Ohio State

i was like get out of here
me and his son laugh, exchange numbers and might chill sometime soon

two assholes from NY arguing about the Mich/O State rivarly in Turks and Caicos

who knew.

El Padrino said...

"however got a bit feisty"

meaning we started throwing the ball to each other really really hard

Tyler said...

There is no way I will have Skip Tracer written, let alone illustrated by Wednesday. Maybe July 16th 2009.

isiah thomas said...

let's have a moment of silence for Billy Packer getting the boot from covering the Final 4, and let's make it a MoS for all the fallen Packers, Billy and TP.
























































































*thank you

Tyler said...

62 comments by Noon EST is weak. What's been happening lately?

Tyler said...

Or is everyone gearing up to make fun of Berman tonight when the derby is on?

Tyler said...

Billy Packer is out? Praise Allah.

paula pierce has a vagina said...

ben sheets starting the all star game

Tyler said...

Uh-oh, but his replacement is Clark Kellogg. Anyone's better than Packer, but Kellogg gets on my nerves.

Keith S said...

OH-IO chant is laaaaaaaaame. But that was a funny story.

New York has the best pony tails

blue said...

someone should sing "one shining moment" for billy packer

isiah thomas said...

AB finally sold. Hopefully they won't discontinue BLL.

El Padrino said...

i'll miss the packers

especially when no one says MISS ST. sucks and doesnt belong in the tourney like he would often do

isiah thomas said...

Or is everyone gearing up to make fun of Berman tonight when the derby is on?

I always LOVE his spanish HR call.

El Padrino said...

"62 comments by Noon EST is weak. What's been happening lately?"

was waiting for everyone else
i dont want to talk to blue all day

blue said...

how about 8 cubs?

El Padrino said...

8 cubs is nauseating, but not as bad because they are not division rivals

blue said...

replacing Kerry Wood with Carlos Marmol is idiotic, the dumbest thing i've heard since teej quit coming to LoV

Tyler said...

Six Sawx in the game is highly annoying.

Keith S said...

"Or is everyone gearing up to make fun of Berman tonight when the derby is on?"


backbackbackbackbackback... Jesus Christ!! We've got 2 fucking hours to get through this, what the fuck? It's like noone here has worked on TV before. Sizemore has been batting for 15 fucking minutes!! I actually can't believe this is happening right now...Gone!!

El Padrino said...

funny keef

blue said...

o/u on times that berman talks about the "josh hamilton story" set at 32

Tyler said...

I'll take the over.

Tyler said...

Over/under on how many "backs" Berman says: 512,476. Again, smart money's on the over.

paula pierce has a vagina said...

cubs guys batting 8 and 9

El Padrino said...

"cubs guys batting 8 and 9"

head to fridge, grab a beer

JFreak said...

"yeah how come meiz is pictured a s a woman"

I picked the first person that came up in a google image search.

At least I think I did.

El Padrino said...

chinese woman says : "wow nine games straight, that's a record right"

STFU, bash your skull in with my dad-to-day calendar stand

paula pierce has a vagina said...

""i'm hoping tyler can post skip tracer volume 1 on wednesday"

its about a fat bald guy who only goes to a certain website to brag when his sports teams are doing well, or else he never ever shows up. when he does, he is confused about everything because he hasnt been around

H said...

"its about a fat bald guy who only goes to a certain website to brag when his sports teams are doing well, or else he never ever shows up. when he does, he is confused about everything because he hasnt been around"

still bitter about the Celtics, huh Spiff?

"when did this come up?"

"i didn't spend much time on LOV the last week or so. what did I miss?"

Hmm, I wonder...

blue said...

me too

H said...

ok, I'm caught up on the Skip Tracer thing

blue said...

More awesome WWL quotes:

"I definitely thought that the All-Star Game should have been Roy Halladay vs. Tim Lincecum"

Lincecum started and pitched 8 inning yesterday, i'm sure he'd be good to go tomorrow. (s) moron

blue said...

Dark Knight > Batman begins

True story

Keith S said...

On this day in 1970...

The National League won the All-Star Game when Pete Rose scored the winning run in the 12th inning after a collision with catcher Ray Fosse.

Keith S said...

TP missed the game due to an AARP meeting

Keith S said...

Sheets is gonna get rocked

Keith S said...

I feel like Humpty Dumpty sitting on this wall

El Padrino said...

and you look like him too

El Padrino said...

post vacation TPS is having it's way with me

El Padrino said...

complete with whips and chains

Keith S said...

Omnibus article is good.

isiah thomas said...

EP - what's the tax hit when you sell a stock for a profit?

blue said...

how long did you hold said stock?

El Padrino said...

15% long term cap gain, 25% short term gain

but depends on the tax bracket your in, those are based on the 25%, 28% tax bracket

El Padrino said...

also there is a $3000 limit, if your loss exceeds 3 g's, 3 g's is all you'll get

ouch

isiah thomas said...

it'll prob. be over a year by the tim I sell it, which I think will reduce the CGT but I'm not sure.

also - what if say you sell 100 shares of something but 50 shares were < 1 yr, do you have to calc it at different rates?

isiah thomas said...

also there is a $3000 limit, if your loss exceeds 3 g's, 3 g's is all you'll get

wow that would suck

blue said...

short term capital gains (held the stock for less than 1 year, you'll pay income taxes as ordinary income, basically whatever your normal tax bracket is. If you held it longer than a year, then it depends on the tax bracket you're in. You pay 5% if you're in the lower 2 brackets and 15% if you're in any of the others, which i'd assume you are.

blue said...

yes, you have to pay different rates based on the different holding dates

El Padrino said...

i'd have to look that up but i'm pretty sure that if you do, they will offset

so what you pay on long term can be used to pay on your short term
cuz that would be double taxation and wouldnt be fair

so it seems

blue said...

if you use turbo tax or something like that to do your taxes, it calculates your liability for you when you go to pay at the end of the year.

blue said...

the IRS will treat the transaction as two seperate transaction, so you'd pay the 15% on the over a year holdings, and ordinary income rate on less than a year holdings

blue said...

tem would enjoy tax talk, even more than a mocha colada from the salty dog

Keith S said...

Fascinating

isiah thomas said...

thanks for the advices

blue said...

also, depending on the state, you will have state income tax on the gains as well

blue said...

omnibus article was so-so....not her best works

Keith S said...

tax talk kilt LoV

blue said...

"Brooke Hogan performed at a Miami nightclub for the premiere of her new show Brooke Knows Best. Brooke was scantily clad in lingerie and backed up by the Knockout Girls who seem to perform in nothing but bras and panties"


zeke is pissed he missed it

isiah thomas said...

because we were on a record pace before it.....

blue said...

blistering

Keith S said...

I wasn't complaining. Just sayin...

Keith S said...

I ate a bag of seeds whilst playing poker on Saturday night and now the inside of my cheek feels like Hideki Matsui's face looks.

El Padrino said...

tomorrow should be better

Keith S said...

Yes. I'm a Big Fat Liar will be here.

El Padrino said...

meaning work wise

blue said...

I went and rode ATVs with my dad this weekend, I wrecked the shit out of one of his 4 wheelers. Fucked the rim all up, luckily didn't bust the axle. I'm sore

isiah thomas said...

I hope Pecos pulled the "fat guy in a little coat" routine to cheer people up today.

or hope that he told some stories about his tours in Nam to help put a smile on peoples faces.

El Padrino said...

there should be a inside the park hr contest

fat boy prince should be in it
put 8 years old's in the outfield let him rip a couple out there and see if they can throw him out

collisions at home plate are allowed

Keith S said...

I had an inside the parker last night. I was a little winded for a while.

El Padrino said...

where is deke?

blue said...

i'm tired

Keith S said...

mize has funeral stuff to do today

blue said...

"where is deke?"

his gf's stepdad passed away last week, today was funeral day, i believe

isiah thomas said...

he didn't say specifically but it sounded like he'll be at the funeral for his girl's step father, or some sort of death related activities.

isiah thomas said...

almost a natty death z, but an emansky death i2i - equally impressive

Keith S said...

That was 3/4 of a funeral natty

Keith S said...

This is weird

blue said...

oh, and he's already planning his own funeral as he's giving serious consideration to popping the question to his ladyfriend

isiah thomas said...

natty death z i-2-i.

historic events on a slow day.

isiah thomas said...

I wonder which forklift company will be the pall-bearer at Deke's funeral?

blue said...

does deke have to get an oversized casket, one that's custom made? He should consult with rev, or are they "one size fits all"?

Keith S said...

mize will be cremated and they'll put his ashes in a silo.

El Padrino said...

"oh, and he's already planning his own funeral as he's giving serious consideration to popping the question to his ladyfriend"

what an idiot!
hahahahahaha

good, good
more for you and me

El Padrino said...

anyway deke,

my codolences to your girlfriend and you if warranted

Keith S said...

Hilarity

He doesn't want to become Evander Holyfield.

"reggie is being jewish for arguing over 1500$"

hey, he's not A-rod, 1500$ might be a lot to Mr. October

blue said...

yeah, people have pet lions in colorado, because it's wild, like the wilderness.

Keith S said...

newr

blue said...

nope

El Padrino said...

"As noted during last night’s game, Jose Reyes is the first player in Major League history to have 10 HR, 20 2B, 10 3B and 30 stolen bases before the All Star break."

and not an All-Star

damn shame

Keith S said...

"and not an All-Star"

Why the hell is Billy Wagner an All-Star?

blue said...

Bill Wagner was a Clint Hurdle choice and he defended it by saying he needed a lefty out of the bullpen.

El Padrino said...

cuz Stone Cold Clint Said so!

blue said...

he's the only lefty on the squad

Keith S said...

AL wins 11-6

blue said...

video of kid climbing into one of those claw machine games.

isiah thomas said...

that link is "illegal or questionable"

blue said...

break.com does have some questionable material

isiah thomas said...

Why the hell is Billy Wagner an All-Star?

I think Hurdle used the Colonel Sanders defense about this pick: "I'm too drunk to remember this pick"

blue said...

we're missing the obvious about wagner...because he plays in NY and the METS are the greatest

isiah thomas said...

Jayson Stark needs to sit the next few out

isiah thomas said...

ahahahhaah, that's funny Steven

Tyler said...

Steven Tyler is one of Boston's favorite sons. He sang the National Anthem before Game 1 of the 2006 Tigers/Cards series. Screwed up the lyrics, then rocked out in the middle. Bizarre stuff.

my ears hurt.
