Windy Stuff

So here in Columbus it was really windy on Sunday. Maybe you saw some highlights from the Browns game or the Bengals game. If you saw those, well the wind in Columbus was apparently worse. So the wind knocked out power for half of the city. Pretty cool stuff. So yesterday the city was "fixing" the power issue and took down power for about half of the remaining people who still had power. That included tem's office. Cool. We sat around in the dark for an hour or so and then the big boss sent us home. That was nice. I like wind.

So on to recent sports thoughts from tem. As mentioned above I was not around yesterday (or this weekend really) so some of this might be cumfastery. Too bad.

1) Big Z's no hitter: Why does the catcher catch strike three and then rifle the ball down to third base? Did he forget how many outs there were? Did the third baseman catch the ball? Was he expecting it? Do the Cubs usually throw the ball around after the third out of the inning??

2) The Bengals are terrible. Their play calling is ridiculous. Lewis will gone after this season. I think the whole Chris Henry signing made him throw in the towel.

3) Buckeye fans have turned on Todd Boeckman. Pryor will be the starting QB within 3 weeks. Probably 2.

4) EA's nose is just too big. If she is gonna get her boobs done why not get that nose done?

5) When the fuck do new TV shows start? They all seem to start in different weeks? New Terminator shows are on, but new Two and a Half Men aren't? What gives?? I thought this shit was all supposed to start the same week. Isn't that how it used to be? I liked it better the old way.

6) Company softball is at 9:20 and 10:10 tonight. I will be drunk for sure. It'll be awesome. I'm pretty sure I've decided that I only really like 1 or 2 people on the team. It turns out I work with a bunch of jerks.

7) Either that or I am a jerk. Either way, I don't like the other players too much.

8) HDH stuff. Clothes is now cloths. I have gotten at least 5 emails where some fool has mispelled clothes.


movie review:

Miracle at St. Anna


This movie is another Christmas movie. It is basically Miracle on 34th Street remade by Spike Lee. So basically it is black Miracle on 34th Street. Basically some crazy black man thinks he is Kwanzaa Claus. He gets into all sorts of situations and such and it is kind of depressing, but he really believes he is Kwanzaa Claus (KC). He even has some sort of statue or something to prove it. All of this gets him into some deep trouble with Johnny Lawman. Anyway, some young lawyer decides that he is gonna defend KC. He knows KC and he knows that KC is a good man even if he did a bad thing. This movie is in the deep south so this young lawyer (who is white) defending KC gets the KKK all up in arms.

So there are threats to the young lawyer's family and his super hot wife has to leave town, but he doesn't back down and he insists on defending KC. He gives it everything he has and with the help of his assistant is able to start to convince the predominantly white jury that KC should be let off the hook because he was temporarily insane. Of course KC wasn't insane and isn't insane now, but that's the best defense young lawyer has. Anyway, the trial goes on and it is only at the closing statements that the young lawyer seals the deal. His passionate speech which ends "Now imagine she is white" sways the jury and the jury finds KC not guilty.

All is well and the young lawyer and KC have a BBQ.

AIG out the door soon


or you can wait until it happens and then act surprised

blue said...

apparently i'm the only one here, or maybe the only one with electricalicity

blue said...

on a random side note, CNN did a profile on Jug last night, he's ok

blue said...

I don't know if this has been said here before, but FUCK Coldplay

blue said...

although one of their newers songs sounds similar to some pink floyd stuff, they still suck

tem said...

yes, fuck Coldplay for whatever reason.

tem said...

i am gonna act surprised RE: AIG.

blue said...

RIP, pink floyd's keyboardist, Rick Wright


limey brits

blue said...

tem got his electricalicity back

Beth said...

I need LOV feedback - AC/DC is coming to Atlanta in December for $93 bucks a ticket. Worth it?

For the record, I loved AC/DC growing up and am still a decent fan. But I don't want to see a bunch of old guys kill my fond memories by sucking.

Beth said...

And yet again, nice movie review Tem.

tem said...

"tem got his electricalicity back"

tem's condo never lost it. tem's work did yesterday.

blue said...

do it beth

tem said...

i would say AC/DC is not worth $93 a ticket.

blue said...

beth's favorite AC/DC song: Big Balls

blue said...

beth wouldn't be buying the tickets, her lawyer fm would be

blue said...

Beth likes to sing:

I've got big balls
They're such big balls
And they're dirty big balls
And he's got big balls
And she's got big balls
(But we've got the biggest balls of them all)

blue said...

my fmlb team decided they were satisfied with 2nd place.

tem said...

it is 1 day into the week.

quit whining already.

blue said...

i'm not whining


the finals is 2 weeks long, correct?

tem said...

i'm not in the finals so i don't know.

blue said...

desean jackson decided that he didn't need to get into the endzone to score a TD last night

tem said...

Week 25
(Sep 15 - Sep 28)

tem said...

"desean jackson"

he owns westbrook in his fantasy league.

Keith S said...

On this day in 1973...

O.J. Simpson set an NFL rushing record by gaining 250 yards in a game between his Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots

tem said...

was TP there?

Keith S said...

My buddy in my money league was losing by 1.9 pts going into the final minute of last night's games. He has the Dallas D, and the 2 sacks they had at the end helped him win by .1 points. That had to sting for the other dude.

Keith S said...

TP who?

tem said...

did we disavow knowledge of TP?

Keith S said...

disawho?

tem said...

who this retard.

tem said...

NEXT!

blue said...

JUG

Keith S said...

I feel like ass today.

Keith S said...

According to pecosian logic, I think I might die today

Keith S said...

Another reason to ♥ Megan Fox

Keith S said...

Mets are gonna miss the playoffs again

tem said...

"Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. "


say what now?

blue said...

if that doesn't put megan fox in your top 5, nothing will

Keith S said...

Beth
FYI... The early line on ASU/UGA is 6.5

tem said...

megan fox is totally angie 2.

soon she will be wearing blood and taking doning angie things to the next level.

tem said...

doning = doing.

Keith S said...

Zero doubt in my mind that MF is batshit crazy.

Keith S said...

She might be more insane than AJ

tem said...

what'd meiz have to say about the brew crew axing yost?

blue said...

exactly


awesome

Keith S said...

"what'd meiz have to say about the brew crew axing yost?"

He said they offered him the interim position but he turnt it down.

tem said...

hopefully she starts getting nekkid in movies.

blue said...

meiz decided they would hire joe girardi

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"I need LOV feedback - AC/DC is coming to Atlanta in December for $93 bucks a ticket. Worth it?"


No way.

Keith S said...

If mize hadn't gotten rid of his time masheen, he could loan it to Beth for the AC/DC concert

blue said...

of course it's not worth 93$ to meiz, that's like 10 steak dinnners

Keith S said...

$9 steaks are the better

tem said...

junking the time masheen was bad news.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Yost firing:

Meh. It won't make a difference. Unless Sveum & Rockin' Robin turn out to be some kind of inspirational genii

Beth said...

The problem with the AC/DC concert is that it's on a Tuesday night. If it was a weekend it'd be a no-brainer I think.

Keith S said...

The Breers should hire mize to be the backstop.

Keith S said...

Not the catcher, but the actual backstop

Keith S said...

"If it was a weekend it'd be a no-brainer I think."

Meaning that only a person with no brains would go?

tem said...

maybe she means she has nothing else to do on a tuesday night.

Tyler said...

"AIG out the door soon


or you can wait until it happens and then act surprised"

So I should move my downpayment money someplace else or should I see if this FDIC Insurance thing is fake or not?

tem said...

send it to me.

blue said...

bank of temerica

Tyler said...

What rate are you advertising?

Tyler said...

I have a story about that f'd up football league that I can't wait to write about on tomorrow's post. Beth will love it because she loves it when guys talk about their fantasy teams.

tem said...

"What rate are you advertising?"

0, but i won't lose the money. i promise.

Tyler said...

Hmmmm, not a good sign; AIG's website is taking a long time to load.

spaceman spiff said...

mcnabb helped me win in lov league but also beat me in another league

Tyler said...

Whew, my money's in ING. Stupid three letter companies.

spaceman spiff said...

too bad noone cares about the keeper league, i have been raping and pillaging in that one

Tyler said...

"mcnabb helped me win in lov league but also beat me in another league"

I love DeSean Jackson because Westbrook scored after his blunder.

Tyler said...

Does anyone know DeSean Jackson's home address? I've got a ProFlowers window open.

tem said...

i have very minimal amounts in ING.

blue said...

"too bad noone cares about the keeper league, i have been raping and pillaging in that one"


i care, my team is just too good.

blue said...

ING is a suffix, not a bank

Tyler said...

"too bad noone cares about the keeper league, i have been raping and pillaging in that one"

Yeah, I had to take a cold shower and scrub myself for a half hour after what happened last night. Thanks.

Beth said...

"Beth will love it because she loves it when guys talk about their fantasy teams."

Thanks for the heads-up Tyler, now I know to go straight to the comments tomorrow.

blue said...

if tyler could just put a link to the comments at the top, that would be great.

blue said...

i need a good joke

Tyler said...

Fantasy Football Update:

Carson Palmer will throw for 300+ yards and five touchdowns this Sunday because I have put him on the bench in very league that I own him. He is a strong play for everyone else this weekend.

blue said...

in very league is a lot

JFreak said...

I benched palmer this past week for chad pennington.

pennington got more points.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I just piled a bunch of dudes onto the trading block in my shitty league, just to see how these retards react to it.

I hope hilarity ensues.

Tyler said...

in very league is HDH

tem said...

i also benched palmer.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

bossman thinks the 5 year old stain on the bathroom wall is shit that someone got on there recently. And now he's all sour, because he thinks someone got shit on the wall & didn't clean it up.


What a crybaby.

spaceman spiff said...

re: jake the snake in ohio, tem you hear about this?
" According to several sources, the 53-year-old legend was found passed out backstage moments before he was scheduled to perform. We’re told when Snake was woken up, he was aggressive, violent and asking for “an 8-ball.” [...]

During the match, Roberts was clearly unable to perform, barely responding to the barrage of “fake blows” he received from the other wrestler, J.T. Lightning. Around one minute into the match, Roberts’ opponent — clearly frustrated with the situation — whispers to the ref to end the fight. Afterwards, Lightning grabbed the mic and told Roberts, “I’ve wrestled drug addicts … you are a piece of s**t, Snake. You gypped these people. F**k you.”

After the verbal assault, Jake pulled down the front of his pants and exposed his penis to the crowd."

hilarity

megan fox

photoshoot from that gq stripper loving article

isiah thomas said...

TP's team made some moves in the keeper league - freak was this you or was it the real TP?

please advice

spaceman spiff said...

freak said he would adjust the roster every week, do you mean make moves like picked someone off waivers/free agency?

tem said...

"jake the snake in ohio, tem you hear about this?"

i had not heard about that.

that is awesome.

isiah thomas said...

TP's team added players I believe.

I thought we decided freak wouldn't touch the team and leave as is?

tem said...

Gruden thinking Griese > Garcia seems dumb.

Unless Garcia is really hurt.

spaceman spiff said...

if they added players, mustve been tp

spaceman spiff said...

freak should be waking up in a few hours for another grueling work day, we'll see what he says then

isiah thomas said...

freak, explain yourself woman.

tem said...

maybe freak is letting his favorite sock control the team.

JFreak said...

"freak was this you or was it the real TP?"

wasn't me.

tem said...

so TP is not dead.

wow.

JFreak said...

Also, morons, it would say that I made the move.

It's like you're we todd did.

isiah thomas said...

I've never seen a commish move in espn so I'm not sure what it would look like.

keep using Pecosian logic though.


QUIET ON THE SET

El Padrino said...

isiah thomas said...

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

"is that bad news?"

very bad

blue said...

hopefully EP isn't being traded to AIG

isiah thomas said...

bad for your company or yob status or bolth (sic)?

hopefully not your yob

isiah thomas said...

go out Nino Brown style EP - blame it on the Puerto Rican.

blue said...

bank of america is buying his company.

El Padrino said...

no, wea re getting like 75% of lehaman's prime broker business, it's good

bad that i have to go in but good result wise

isiah thomas said...

sucks your vaca is cut short, great news otherwise.

isiah thomas said...

go out Nino Brown style EP - blame it on the Puerto Rican.


I'd still recommend this however.

tem said...

the bank of temerica is ruthless.

isiah thomas said...

the bank of temerica is ruthless.


roofless and quite possibly toofless if stocked with employees from wa va.

tem said...

BoT only hires hot womens.

tem said...

except for 1 fatty who is used to point at and say "see we don't just hire hot womens"

tem said...

she has teef, they are just filed down from all the eating she does.

tem said...

company softball game today.


mr as. needs to teach me how to hit to right field today.

tem said...

or at least explain his/a method to me.

tem said...

other than batting lefty.

tem said...

meeting time.

isiah thomas said...

is anyone else worried about Fathead's health after last nights Iggles game?

isiah thomas said...

one token fatty is exceptible (sic)

blue said...

re: hitting to right field, whilst the pitch is in the air, drop your right foot back (step backwards, with your right).

then wait until the ball is towards the back of your stance to swing

isiah thomas said...

re: hitting to right field


don't hit it to left.

done and done.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"mr as. needs to teach me how to hit to right field today."

hit lefty

blue said...

hitting to rf:

it's easier to explain with a video

blue said...

"don't hit it to left."

what about center?

isiah thomas said...

tem pull a Major League and call your shot then bunt.

blue said...

drink a lot

then it won't matter where you hit it

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Drop your hand/arms/bat down before swinging.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

*hands

blue said...

I knew TMQ would approve of shanahan's call to go for 2

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Poop your pants before hitting

tem said...

"Drop your hand/arms/bat down before swinging."

i've seen a dude do this.

he pops up to right a lot.

tem said...

i'll try the dropping my leg back if i am sober enough.

tem said...

by the by Jaws was on top of his game yesterday.

spaceman spiff said...

is stepping forward with your left foot instead of stepping back with the right acceptable? thats what i do

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i've seen a dude do this.

he pops up to right a lot."


Then that dude is swinging too hard.

tem said...

"is stepping forward with your left foot instead of stepping back with the right acceptable?"

i might step on the plate if i did that.

tem said...

because i am we todd did.

isiah thomas said...

by the by Jaws was on top of his game yesterday.


Jaws gets too high and too low covering Iggles games, imo.

Iggles get behind he clams up.

Iggles score and take lead he gets manic.

isiah thomas said...

I like jaws though, TC...notsomuch.

isiah thomas said...

Then that dude is swinging too hard.


NBA Scab : check
MLB Scab : check
Beer League Softball Guy : check

blue said...

yeah, i worry about stepping on the plate if i step forward

Keith S said...

So yep, definitely strep throat.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"MLB Scab : check"

'scuse me?

Keith S said...

The good news is I don't have to go back to work

Keith S said...

"mr as. needs to teach me how to hit to right field today."


I don't like the whole "drop your right leg back" routine because then there's too much movement in the box.


TWSS

Keith S said...

Just wait until the ball is deeper into the zone.


TWSS

tem said...

does mr. as. prefer the dropping hands method?

blue said...

too much movement, but it's impossible to teach a guy how to swing "inside out" over the interweb...unless you use my awesome instructional video i linked.

Tom Emansky could teach tem.

tem said...

HDH email:

" I am hoping to have everyone that is going to participate finalized by September 30rd "

tem said...

i used that link. kid looked like he was using the drop your hands method.

Keith S said...

"does mr. as. prefer the dropping hands method?"

No, then you'll swing up and pop it up a lot. Unless you're mize.

blue said...

yeah, drop hands method and lead with hands/knob of bat (inside out swing)

Keith S said...

September 30rd is the awesomer

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"No, then you'll swing up and pop it up a lot. Unless you're mize."

The point of it is to hit bloop singles.

Keith S said...

"The point of it is to hit bloop singles."

If your goal is to hit a "bloop single", you'll probably pop-up more than you get a hit.
I'd rather take my chances hitting it either hard on the ground or a line drive.

isiah thomas said...

keef how did People's Court go?

Keith S said...

If teams are paying attention, then can see what you're doing and either have the RF move in or have the 2B play a lot deeper

Keith S said...

"keef how did People's Court go?"

It's at 3:15.

isiah thomas said...

tem just try to get a HBP.

blue said...

yeah, that's why you wait until the ball is in the air to shuffle feets

isiah thomas said...

good luck with that.

don't forget your script

isiah thomas said...

G's to Gents finale tonight right?

Shotta will win.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"I'd rather take my chances hitting it either hard on the ground or a line drive."

right.

blue said...

if your goal is to hit bloop singles, you probably should play women's softball

tem said...

i have trouble keeping the barrel of the bat back through my swing, so inside out swing is tough for me.

tem said...

i do well enough hitting it hard to left, but i want to diversify my game.

Keith S said...

"i have trouble keeping the barrel of the bat back through my swing, so inside out swing is tough for me."

Don't extend your arms ass (sic) munch (sic).

tem said...

i'll keep that in mind.

tem said...

this is thrilling conversation.

El Padrino said...

madden makes me so angry, i dont even know why i still play it

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Its shocking that Beth has made this long with us.


Boring lawyer talk must be better than this.

spaceman spiff said...

"Just wait until the ball is deeper into the zone."

when drunk, i think this would result in a swing and miss a lot

spaceman spiff said...

come to think of it, when drunk, you should be hitting it to right anyways because of delayed drunk reflexes

tem said...

if i am drunk i won't be even trying to hit it to right. i'll just be swinging hard and hoping not to hit it right at someone.

spaceman spiff said...

i wish drunk tem could live blog from the dugout at a game

Keith S said...

AHIIK

tem said...

it's not really a huge if.

Keith S said...

TWSS

tem said...

that's too bad.

tem said...

"i wish drunk tem could live blog from the dugout at a game"

too bad i don't have a verizon network card like some folks here do.

spaceman spiff said...

shes still marrying him tho

blue said...

jug should have live-blogged the hurricane

Keith S said...

"too bad i don't have a verizon network card like some folks here do."

Then borrow some folks card

spaceman spiff said...

finally tried them and new carls jr fries are to megan fox as old fries are to kelly osbourne

Keith S said...

I don't think I've ever had Carl's Jr

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem needs a blackberry

blue said...

"finally tried them and new carls jr fries are to megan fox as old fries are to kelly osbourne"

agreed

tem said...

"finally tried them and new carls jr fries are to megan fox as old fries are to kelly osbourne"


HDH analogy.

Keith S said...

I'm surprised tem didn't drop a ::blank stare::

spaceman spiff said...

"Tem needs a blackberry"

dont think they sell them in the 'midwest' for fear of a technical support request overload on all fronts

tem said...

i know who kelly osborne is.

tem said...

lots of folks here have blackberries too.

tem said...

i could take a wireless card though.

i just don't want that kind of responsibility.
