Sufferin' succotash

It's Lou Holtz season!

Which in turn means that it's college football season.

And you know what that means. Pac-10 poon will be back!

Everyone should take a few minutes today and thank Lou Holtz for bringing back p10poon.

Alright, I'm gonna try something new. I'm gonna pick the team in the top 25 that I think has the best shot of choking on their ranking. I'll probably be too lazy to continue to do this, but oh well. Since it's not really an upset if both teams are ranked, I won't consider those games.

There aren't a lot of appealing choices this week. Cupcakes run rampant early in the season. The most likely to choke this week is Pittsburgh. Somehow Pitt is ranked even though they didn't qualify for a bowl last year. I know the wa-va win was a good showing for them, but it wasn't that good. They've still got Dave Wannstedt as their coach. And, well...he's just awful. I give this choke a 45% chance of happening.

Cubs magic number for a playoff spot is 20...24 for the division. Just keeping you updated. Angels are at 15. Seattle's is 58 for the wild card, they can't win their division.

Ante Up - M.O.P.


I can't remember if I linked this or not, but who cares?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

are you just sitting around in the back yard and say "hmm, its a little breezy today." And then you look over your shoulder and "HOLY FUCK, THERE'S A GIANT FIRE!" ?

Tyler said...

"More wildfire in CA? How the fuck does that shit happen?"

There is a ton of dry brush during the summer. And like Keith said, the Santa Anas are brutal. And it never rains during the summer. Like, never. Even in the desert it will rain during the summer (last day I was in Vegas there were flashflood warnings and it rained a bit). Add all of those together and someone dumbass throws a cigarette out the window, and it's real easy for a fire to start.

isiah thomas said...

More wildfire in CA? How the fuck does that shit happen?


deke it only "rains" in southern CA in december and january, its dry the rest of the year. By this time of year everything is hot and dry - prime for fires.

only YOU can prevent forest fires.

Tyler said...

Santa Anas aren't "a little breezy". They are strong and normally hot winds. They suck.

isiah thomas said...

forest fire i-2-i....almost a forest fire z.

Tyler said...

I picked up Steve Slaton in that f'd up league last night. Commish left a message on the board saying that was a good pickup. Screw you.

Tyler said...

Another problem is that they will change direction at the drop of a hat when the wind changes. And they can eat up acres of land in minutes, so they're hard to contain.

El Padrino said...

A guy was sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife walked up behind him and whacked him on the head with a magazine.
'What was that for?' he asked.

'That was for the piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Laura Lou written on it,' she replied.

Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Laura Lou was the name of one of the horses I bet on,' he explained.

'Oh honey, I'm sorry,' she said. 'I should have known there was a good explanation '

Three days later he was watching a ball game on TV when she walked up and hit him in the head again, this time with the iron skillet, which knocked him out cold.
When he came to, he asked, 'What the hell was that for?'

She replied...

'Your horse called.'

this was good:
A New York Times article on his years at Harvard Law, where he was editor of the law review, said, "In dozens of interviews, his friends said they could not remember his specific views from that era, beyond a general emphasis on diversity and social and economic justice." A similar piece on his years teaching at the University of Chicago Law School said he notably did not participate in its intellectual debates.

Barack Obama raises the prospect of a candidate for the first time being elected into the presidency almost wholly on the basis of a compelling persona. It is no surprise this could happen in an age tugged by the siren song of celebrity.

Beth said...

Is blogger messed up for anyone else? I can't see anyone's pictures.

isiah thomas said...

more:

The 2008 election is almost certainly going to be decided by white, lower-middle-class voters -- the people who voted for Hillary Clinton this year and before that for Ronald Reagan. If these voters don't swing behind the Obama candidacy in Ohio, Michigan, Florida and Missouri, he will lose.

Yet amid a universally described lack of clarity about Sen. Obama's experience and core political beliefs, it is now being said that if the people in blue-collar counties don't vote for him, they, and their nation, remain racist.

This is false. If they don't vote for Barack Obama, it won't be over his personal roots, but because they're confused about the roots of his politics.

isiah thomas said...

at work I can't see anyone's picture but beth's (ns)

at home, no problem with any pics

isiah thomas said...

last part:

The assertion that workaday white people in Ohio's Mahoning Valley, Altoona, Pa., or Macomb County, Mich., won't vote for a black man reveals more about the race-based obsessions of the intellectual elites making these claims than the reality of this campaign.

Bear in mind that these voters didn't become an explicit concern of the Obama campaign until after Super Tuesday. Before the primaries arrived in Ohio and Pennsylvania, Sen. Obama's biggest wins were Iowa, South Carolina, Minnesota, Kansas, home-state Illinois, Georgia, Delaware, Connecticut, Colorado, Virginia, Maryland and Wisconsin. Amid the Obama jubilation, Hillary was winning California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York.

Sen. Obama accumulated his victorious lead early with a liberal coalition willing to vote for him mainly for reasons of faith – upper-middle-class whites, black voters and young idealists -- all attempting to complete the civil-rights promise, answer the post-partisan appeal, or vote against the war and George Bush.

Hillary's wins in the big states above were portents. His coalition's limitations hit the wall in Ohio. Here Sen. Clinton discovered her Rosie-the-Riveter persona, and it worked. I watched her sell bread-and-butter policy before blue-collar crowds in Youngstown, Akron and Cleveland. She was tremendously good at it. He just wasn't. The Sunday before the Ohio vote, Sen. Obama abandoned Ohio. The way Hillary won in these crucial November swing states may have fatally damaged his candidacy.

Does a candidate for the U.S. presidency have to be able to connect somehow with white working-class voters who didn't attend college to win? The answer, 40 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is no longer about race. It's about the most fundamental question a plain-thinking voter asks: Does this guy get me?

Sen. Obama's biography is as compelling as his supporters claim. His problem is that there is nothing in it to suggest he has spent any significant time thinking about these people other than as a political abstraction. It's made more difficult by the fact that it is so hard for them to get a sure grip on him. When a politician leaves no political trail, some voters get lost. For Sen. Obama, after this long campaign, too many still look lost.
