Remind me why I volunteered for this again???

This post is brought to you by the lovely Beth. And the letter W. Enjoy:


So I have to admit, I’m pleasantly surprised with the Atlanta media. I was pretty sure that after the Falcons win (sorry EP) they were going to go on and on about how they’re going to shock the world with a decent season and all that. Instead the local media actually seems to have shown some surprising restraint. The way I feel about the season is that anything over 4 wins is a decent season, so it’s nice to get win # 1 out of the way already. Now if only I can find out where Matt Ryan goes drinking after practice, the phrase “cumbucket” may come back into play…

Of course the reason the media may be laying low on the Falcons is that they can’t get enough of the Bulldogs. Now I’m a pretty big Dawg fan but it’s still WAAAAAAYYYYYY early and they haven’t played anyone yet. This weekend might be telling as they’re playing a decent team (it’s the SEC!!!!!!) but not a really good one. But the Dawgs normally struggle with Spurrier no matter who he’s coaching, and I think only once in the last five years has it not been either a loss or a close game. Last year was a loss and Stafford had a TERRIBLE game so I know he’s looking for redemption. So a good solid win with no drama will go a long way in my eyes.

But the anointing of the Dawgs and Richt just seems premature to me. Earlier this week a columnist for the AJC stated that Moreno is already a “legend”. Give me a break! He’s had some very good games and has amazing potential, but he’s nowhere near a legend yet. And the legend column was mostly based on a play from the Dawgs last game where he hurdled a Central Michigan player. In fact the paper was kinda bitching that that play didn’t get more national publicity. Here’s a link to it. I’m curious though, did any of y’all see this before I posted the link?

I can’t remember if this has been mentioned on LOV but some people are making a pretty big deal out of Phelps being at the Playboy Club in Vegas and semi-groping some of the women working there. Gee, he’s a HUGE celebrity, he’s insanely wealthy and famous, he’s 23 and he just got finished with training ridiculously hard for a very long time. I think he deserves to blow off some steam. And it’s not like he’s groping some girl against her will in the corner of a dark bar – these are Playboy bunnies for god’s sake. So anyone bitching about it needs to get over it. (End of Bethrant.)

I think this is my 3rd time doing a guest post and each time I am very thankful I don’t have to do this every week. It’s not easy! (Although it is reassuring to know that I only have to reach a D- standard.) But if I was doing this every week I have to say I still wouldn’t resort to a post of mostly videos (hint hint).

OK, I’m done. Let’s all just bide our time 'til we can hear endless stories about the old guy in Zeke’s office. The stories are just so different each day - I can’t get enough of them!!!! (S)
(NBL Zeke, NBL.)

Tem, you might have wanted to mention that this was my guest post, unless you WANT everyone to think you are telling Zeke "nothing but love". :-)

tem said...

everyone already knows.

Beth said...

Although I did get a chuckle out of the label you chose for it. :-)

tem said...

but just in case i'll toss a note on there.

tem said...

that was my subject in case you didn't specify one.

Beth said...

I like your subject better than the one I chose.

tem said...

FYI i did see the No Shawn jump. It was on yahoo.com and they had a little article about how it was BS it was not a top 10 play on ESPN.

i bet the Omnibus is writing a response.

tem said...

i just heard this is the office:


"her name is sarah, she is some new girl out of college, she looks like she's about 22."


umm no shit, most people are about 22 when they get out of college.

tem said...

"I like your subject better than the one I chose."

too late, you are stuck with your subject.

tem said...

by the by i heard nothing about phelps and groping bunnies.

tem said...

Falcons have another good shot at a win against TB this week.

Griese is starting.

Beth said...

Phelps and groping bunnies

I don't think there are any clear pics of it, the ones in the above link are the best I've seen.

(SFW)

Beth said...

Yeah, I saw that about the Bucs. If the Falcons can pull it off I think this town will really start to get excited. I wonder if any rookie QB has won his first 2 starts. Big Ben maybe (no, not you Blue, Roethlisberger).

blue said...

ryan leaf won his first 2 starts, i believe...not to reign on the parade

blue said...

"So we're renting a Jeep Wrangler in Hawaii. I hope it doesn't fucking rain every day"

convertible is the way to go, it's awesome the first couple days, but by the time your sunburnt, it's not as much fun...

then again keef lives where it's 115 in October so maybe he is immmune to the powers of the sun

blue said...

i mentioned this last night but is that beth in the stars and stripes bikini that Sarah Palin's head is photoshopped on? The chick is from Georgia.

Beth said...

"ryan leaf won his first 2 starts, i believe"

Damn, you're right, the bible just confirmed it. Leaf was the first to do that since some guy named Elway.

Beth said...

"i mentioned this last night but is that beth in the stars and stripes bikini that Sarah Palin's head is photoshopped on? The chick is from Georgia."

Well, at one point in my life I DID have a stars and stripes bikini... (ns)

blue said...

so it is you when you were 23...hmmm

very nice

tem said...

now its just straight camo for beth.

tem said...

camo and rebel flag bikinis.

tem said...

so if the falcons win this sunday (aHiIK) matt ryan has a 50% chance of being the next ryan leaf and a 50% chance of being the next John Elway?

blue said...

sounds like it

blue said...

i'm hoping he goes the leaf route, and the falcons bring back Mike Vick

blue said...

i hope EBNTX stays out of the way of hurricane Ike...RiP EB.

i'm not worried about Jug, he's immune to hurricanes

blue said...

now what if the hurricane was named Jug..

that would be a tough hurricane

tem said...

maybe they will name the J one Jug.

tem said...

but i think J is a girl's name this year.

Beth said...

J is Josephine this year.

blue said...

yeah, i think they already named it, josephine or something

blue said...

there's always next year

tem said...

next year J will be a guy's name.

beth should find the person who names these things, start sleeping with them and then campaign for hurricane Jug.

tem said...

by the by, if you are going to send a really long email try to use paragraph form. it is hard as fuck to read an email that is just one really really fucking long paragraph.

tem said...

WWL comments are getting just fucking ridiculous:

"The entire NFL should wear a black No. 12 patch on their jerseys for the rest of this season." -OldSchool PatriotFan


OldSchool PatriotFan needs to die.

Beth said...

"beth should find the person who names these things, start sleeping with them and then campaign for hurricane Jug."

If I slept with some old hurricane dude to get to influence the names, we'd have Beth1 thru Beth26. :-)

Beth said...

Speaking of hurricane names, I did see where one LOV'r is immortalized, as Hurricane Keith has already been retired.

tem said...

"If I slept with some old hurricane dude to get to influence the names, we'd have Beth1 thru Beth26. "

hmm, i could see how you could have a few beth's in there, but after a bit you wouldn't throw a bone to Jug.

Hurrican Tem would be cool.

Beth said...

"Hurrican Tem would be cool."

Temicane?

tem said...

omnibus wrote something yesterday about how ESPN is too big or something.

blue said...

hurricane blue would probably start out strong but end with a whimper in a relatively short amount of time....or so i've been told

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i'm not worried about Jug, he's immune to hurricanes"

Jug invented hurricanes to kill the weak.

tem said...

a temicane would destroy entire continents.

Beth said...

I think hurricanes named after all the LOV regulars would be cool. But watch out for Hurricanes Meiz and Rev, they'd be huge.

Hurricane JayWhite would be interesting though, it would be really really noisy but then quietly disappear.

tem said...

it would rain in people's mouths.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"I think hurricanes named after all the LOV regulars would be cool. But watch out for Hurricanes Meiz and Rev, they'd be huge."


Dammit all, I'm not that big.

tem said...

"Jug invented hurricanes to kill the weak."

i thought he invented chuck norris for that.

Jugdish said...

hurricane days are not nearly as fun as snow days used to be.

Beth said...

"Dammit all, I'm not that big."

And TP isn't that old, but they're still fun jokes to make.

Jugdish said...

The EYE of hurricane Rev would be huge...bigger than most. It would also swirl in the opposite direction.

Jugdish said...

Then, for no reason, Hurricane Rev would swirl in the other direction...like most democrats.

Beth said...

Hurricane Jug would disappear for long periods of time and then suddenly reappear.

Jugdish said...

This is true...

tem said...

but hurricane jug would give handy dandy links of where he was going and what he was going to do.

Jugdish said...

hurricane elp would be the best hurricane. I would cause the most damage and have the worst winds. Hurricane elp would cause the end of the world possibly.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

you sonofabitch

Jugdish said...

however, hurricane elp would spare nyc...that would be where the only survivors were found.

There the survivors would live on sub-standard pizza and overrated food.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

wait. disregard the sonofabitch comment.

regards

Beth said...

If Hurricane Zeke wasn't given enough attention, it would turn around and disappear for many months.

Jugdish said...

I live about 30 min from the Galveston coast, and my zip code is under mandatory evacuation.

I am going to a friends house nearby.

pretty cool storm tracker site

tem said...

hurricane zeke comment = hilarity.

Jugdish said...

Hurricane Zeke's winds would sound really loud and destructive, but would likely only blow over a lawn chair.

tem said...

zeke combat warred last night. he kept shooting me.

tem said...

ike is only a lvl 2 now?

Jugdish said...

Yeah...cat 2. It is supposed to hit shore as a mid 3 to mid 4 from what they say. I am hoping it keeps moving east somewhat so we aren't on the dirty side.

Jugdish said...

Both sides of hurricane Deke would be dirty.

tem said...

jug link for storms was cool.

Jugdish said...

If you look at the forecast models there is always one that is always WAY off from the others. I wonder about those people.

tem said...

it'll hit as a 1 and everyone will wonder why they left town days in advance.

tem said...

or it will hit the part of texas that everyone evacuates to.

tem said...

one of the models as it going through columbus oh in about a week.

i better get out of here.

Jugdish said...

After Katrina hit NO, Rita was heading for Texas and everyone freaked. A shit load of people evacuated from Houston and Galveston. The storm ended up hitting lousinana and east texas.

I evacuated and it took me 29 hours to get to College Station, normally a 2 hour trip.

tem said...

yeah, i think we overreact to these things a bit.

it's too hard to say where the thing is gonna go.

Jugdish said...

big time.

Beth said...

"it's too hard to say where the thing is gonna go."

TWSS?

Jugdish said...

nice!

tem said...

maybe a better one for LMC.

tem said...

of cours beth can't really use LMC.

Jugdish said...

I'm heading out! Have a good weekend!

Beth said...

"of cours beth can't really use LMC"

I can use LMV...

Beth said...

Stay safe Jug!

blue said...

hurricane talk was very entertaining

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Hey Tits, would you be okay with some gourmet hotsauce as part of your impending prize package?








(TWMS)

tem said...

hearing beth bust out a "like my vag" joke in person would be priceless.

blue said...

beth wouldn't say LMP?

tem said...

she said LMV, not LMP.

Beth said...

"hearing beth bust out a "like my vag" joke in person would be priceless."

"beth wouldn't say LMP?"

Actually, LMV in that context (relating it to LMC) was meant to be "like my vibrator".

Beth said...

And Meiz, I don't need a prize, just knowing I won will be prize enough.

NS

blue said...

ah, vibrator...that's a good one

tem said...

what did tits win?

blue said...

she won the golf

tem said...

vibrator is less funny than vag.

tem said...

golf is over?

tem said...

wtg tits.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Suit yourself.

blue said...

i didn't realize golf was still going

Beth said...

BTW, golf still has 2 more tournaments I think. But I'll still win.

blue said...

has anyone mentioned that Joe Flacco's long run on sunday reminded me of Shane Falco...all that was missing was him stopping off afterwards to kiss the cheerleader

tem said...

the cheerleader in that movie was smoking hot.

spaceman spiff said...

"So we're renting a Jeep Wrangler in Hawaii. I hope it doesn't fucking rain every day"

watch out for falling rocks

spaceman spiff said...

beth doesnt want a prize because she doesnt want to give meiz her mailing addy

Beth said...

beth doesnt want a prize because she doesnt want to give anyone on LOV her mailing addy

*fixed

:-)

blue said...

"the cheerleader in that movie was smoking hot."

I agree

blue said...

that cheerleader was on friday night lights for awhile, she was not as hot anymore...

she didn't age well

spaceman spiff said...

me and blue are in a dogfight semifinal

spaceman spiff said...

the angels popped bottles

spaceman spiff said...

"she didn't age well"

movie lighting and makeup > tv lighting and make up?

blue said...

"movie lighting and makeup > tv lighting and make up?"

that, and I think they were trying to make her look older on the show.

tem said...

lack of aging well for her saddens me.

she looked hot in short hair and i usually don't like short hair. i assumed it meant she was super hot.

tem said...

she looks bad with long hair and good with short hair.

what gives?

tem said...

she's got a photo out there where she is blonde. that is nice.

tem said...

free lunch time.

i like free lunch days.

blue said...

can't go wrong with a free lunch

isiah thomas said...

if so, your mission, if you chose to accept, will be to drop at least one "Pecos" AND one "you know George Karl said I could play in the NBA" references in your best man speech.

Keith S said...

"watch out for falling rocks"

Huh?

isiah thomas said...

someone brought in donuts, hadn't had a freshly made donut in a minute. it was good.

beth - the old guy did not partake in free donuts "I only eat fresh donuts if they're Krispy Kreme" (ns)

"WADR is the equivalent of "bless his/her heart" in the south"

Ahhhh, this I understand.

Thanks Zeke, but I'm more waiting to hear about how he tears off the printer paper or eats M&M's for lunch...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"I'd like to see a vidyeo recap of this."

My shitty little camera fucks up my browser every time I post videos now, and I can never watch them. So, prolly not.

isiah thomas said...

Thanks Zeke, but I'm more waiting to hear about how he tears off the printer paper or eats M&M's for lunch...

only one printing so far today and no candy yet.

every day at 12:45 he walks to the boss's office and steals candy from bowls she sets out (thats during her lunch hour) ns

a lot of standing from him today again.

isiah thomas said...

don't be afraid to share stories from your office, I'm sure we won't get tired of endless "so I was under this guy's desk" stories.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"deke are you taking efmdeke to the wedding?"

She's invited anyway. Plus I need her to drive my ass up to Appleton.

Keith S said...

"My shitty little camera fucks up my browser every time I post videos now, and I can never watch them. So, prolly not."

Yeah, but you haven't tried it with the Chrome yet

so saturday is when you two officially get back together.

Negative.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"the car that is old enuff to buy beer won't go to appleton?"

It would make it, but there's no way I'm taking that thing more than 30 miles away.

spaceman spiff said...

""watch out for falling rocks""

driving around some parts of hawaii, there are falling rocks, fmspiff's uncle had a midget sized one land in his passenger seat NS

spaceman spiff said...

and im not talking about the boonies

blue said...

what island are you headed to keeth

spaceman spiff said...

on 9/10 meiz made a joke about 9/11

never forget

Keith S said...

So if that happens, I'll just collect the insurance.

Keith S said...

We're staying in Honolulu.

spaceman spiff said...

are you staying strictly resort/beach or are you doing tourist stuff

blue said...

rocks won't fall on you near waikiki, but if you drive around to the north side of the island (which i recommend) you might get some rocks on you.

Keith S said...

Gonna do some tourist shit, but haven't booked anything yet. Gonna do that later this month. Looking at doing a zipline on Kauai. What do you suggest

spaceman spiff said...

i have no activity suggestions, all i do when i go over there is eat.

Keith S said...

I'll probably eat when I'm there

Keith S said...

"rocks won't fall on you near waikiki, but if you drive around to the north side of the island (which i recommend) you might get some rocks on you."

Got it. Drive to the north, but watch out for rocks.

spaceman spiff said...

giovanni's shrimp truck is awesome if you like shrimp. there's a lot of shrimp trucks in haleiwa, but giovanni's is the original and my favorite. they all get their shrimp from the shrimp farms in that area so its very very fresh. i get the scampi, comes with a lot of garlic. you should not get the spicy one or your heartburn will kill you. the food is cooked in the truck, comes on a styro plate. i usually eat 2-3 plates of 12 shrimp/2 scoops rice everytime i go

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Getting some rocks on yourself doesn't strike me as a pleasurable experience.

Keith S said...

"giovanni's shrimp truck is awesome if you like shrimp."

Is that on Waikiki?

spaceman spiff said...

north shore has turtle beach if you want to see sea turtles

spaceman spiff said...

"Is that on Waikiki?"

no, its probly at least a half hour drive from waikiki to the small town of haleiwa. the shrimp truck isnt very romantic or honeymoony so i wouldnt recommend it unless you are in full tourist mode at that point. you eat at a picnic table and there are flies around. a lot of tourist eat and then head over to matsumoto shave ice( the famous one, adam sandler has a shirt in 50 first dates)

I think he plays 1 ineffective series then sits.

well tem never dated first watch waitress.

stalking of her was put on hold during the on again phase of efmtem.

since that is off again, stalking will probably commence again.
