Texas Should Have Won More Games

I really dislike it when businesses put signs up that say they were doing something "Since 2005." That was 3 freaking years ago. That sign tells me that you have no experience, I should not trust you. Unless the year was at least 10 years ago don't put a "Since" sign up.

Kevin McHale took over as the Wolves coach. He hasn't coached "Since 2005" and he was 19-12 then. So it must be a good move...wait? what's that? The Wolves just suck. This won't help them at all. All it will do is make it easier for the owner to give McHale the boot.

Well let's talk about the Bucs/Panthers...or as my little cousin calls them the Pantlers....Anyway, I guess Monte must have spent too much time recruiting for TN and not enough time watching the running game of the Pantlers. Jeez-a-lou that was some bad defense. On the flip sign Antonio Bryant made one hell of a catch in the end zone. It was pretty.

Well I guess it is time to start the TCS. The following are the rules for the TCS.

1st Round is this post through Keith's post next Monday. It includes LOV AD and LOV WE.

The 1st Round will feature no head to head match ups it is Rotisserie or however that is spelled. The top 8 people advance to round 2.

Round 2 is from my next post through Keith's 12-22 post. If you are going on vacation tough. Round 2 will be seeds 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc.

TCS takes a holiday break and resumes with Round 3 starting with my 1-6 post.

Round 4, the final round starts with my 1-13 post and goes through Keith's 1-19 post.

I will give periodic updates to the scoring.

During round 1 a person can get no more than 100 points on a single post.

In the event of a tie I will break the tie with a trivia question that hopefully can not be looked up on the intraweb.

Scoring is as such:
comments that make me laugh are worth 1 or 2 points, depending on the comedy level.
comments with funny HDH are worth 1 point.
comments with stupid HDH that appears forced are worth -2 points unless noted by an asterisk indicating you did it on purpose.
comments with links to nekkid celebs I have never seen before are worth 2 points
comments with links to nekkid people I don't want to look at are worth -2 points.
comments with links to nekkid normal people I have never seen before are worth 1 point.
comments that would resemble a good temrant are worth 2 points.
spamming comments is worth -5 points. i alone determine spamming.
natty Zs are worth 2 points.
premie Zs are worth 2 points.
properly timed walls are worth 2 points
bad walls are worth -2 points.
cumfastery on links is worth -2 points.
messing up then/than will not be punished, if that happened some people would have negative scores.
by the by, accepted lov vernacular, like suite, holier then now, etc will not be penalized.
properly hitting older, newer, sparta and rev is worth 2 points.
messing up older, newer, sparta and rev is worth -2 points.
comments that otherwise are impressive but not specifically noted above are worth 1 or 2 points. this is a catch all category because the above rules don't capture all the awesomeness that is spewed here.
remember during round 1 a person can get no more than 100 points on a single post.




OK, no movie review today because I am running late.

Oh and I am not eligible to win the TCS and the winner of the TCS will get a fabulous prize pack of things I find in my office.

LET THE TCS BEGIN.

awesome.

frist is worth +1.

deke is in the lead.

perhaps he duped me and did it on purpose, but it made me laugh.

tem said...

"I'm glad the TCS is not based on volume this year."

i did not want to be reading 4,000 comments.

tem said...

i'm going to have to print this stuff out to keep score....i think.

tem said...

i'll be scoring TCS on the can.

El Padrino said...

mets gonna sign krod and not overpay him

suite.

tem said...

"Tem is forcing us to actually try to be funny."

funny or mean.

slappers provide much entertainment as well.

Beth said...

Genuine slappers should definitely be worth some good points too, but forced or lame slappers need to be negative points.

El Padrino said...

me and slappers is like peas and carrots

bring it

El Padrino said...

tailgaters in cold places, rejoice

Beth said...

EP, have you ever been in a slapper that didn't involve something NY related?

Beth said...

So any zeke slapper is worth negative points

*fixed

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"So any zeke slapper is worth negative points

fair enough

El Padrino said...

calendar of random naked chicks

El Padrino said...

"EP, have you ever been in a slapper that didn't involve something NY related?"

probably with tjw dont remember

El Padrino said...

politics slapper, yeah

Beth said...

So EP links a "calendar or random naked chicks" where none of the chicks are actually naked. I sense some negative points coming...

tem said...

movie slappers too probably.

El Padrino said...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i'm acting normal linking things i normally link and commenting like i normally comment"


I find this to be a hilarious comment.

Is there anybody out there that's more holier then now?

tem said...

no points for not putting up a terrible link.

commenting like you usually comment is the way to go.

tem said...

nekkid links will be reviewed when tem gets home. so the scoring on them will be up in the air for now.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

EP's mindset:

"If I don't win this shit, its fucking rigged. NY doesn't lose to any other city."

tem said...

as in, i don't know if el pad's link is point worthy or not, but i will know tonight.

tem said...

by the by, accepted lov vernacular, like suite, holier then now, etc will not be penalized.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm forcing everything. I will try to make my comments extra awful.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"by the by, accepted lov vernacular, like suite, holier then now, etc will not be penalized."


Naturally

tem said...

round 1 should be just a feeling out period for folks to see where they stand.

we don't have much more than 8 regular commentors here and i don't count.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Why do people put wreaths on the grill of their luxury cars?

I hate Mequon people.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

El Padrino said...

when ace greenberg talks you listen

Beth said...

"we don't have much more than 8 regular commentors here and i don't count"

I'm actually hoping to not make the top 8. (ns) So I was slightly disappointed to see it wasn't based on volume. But already the trying-to-hard comments are making up for it.

El Padrino said...

"Is there anybody out there that's more holier then now?"

maybe your mother is

Jugdish said...

I won't be able to invest much time in tcs this year

Beth said...

The TCS this year is actually quite brilliant. It's nothing more than tem setting up everyone to amuse him while he sits back (on the crapper no less) and randomly assigns points.

El Padrino said...

illinois gove arressted, something to do with corruption and obama

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"maybe your mother is"


Maybe she is. You'll never know.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"illinois gove arressted, something to do with corruption and obama"



Well of course it has to do with corruption and Obama. Why wouldn't it?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Wow. That had nothing to do with Obama.

El Padrino said...

I doubt Conan is happy about this

El Padrino said...

"Wow. That had nothing to do with Obama."

it's called sensationalism deke, get with it

You're the one that sensationalized it.

but seriously, TCS is a lot of work for me.

Keith S said...

"comments with stupid HDH that appears forced are worth -2 points unless noted by an asterisk indicating you did it on purpose."

Doesn't the asterisk admit that it's forced?

tem said...

and the winner gets a prize pack that might include a frisbee, a columbus blue jackets beer bottle koozie thing, some binder clips, more black kid christmas cards, a t-shirt and whatever else i find laying around this place.

Jugdish said...

that's worth one point right there

Jugdish said...

bed skirt?

tem said...

"Doesn't the asterisk admit that it's forced?"

yes, but if you asterisk it then it doesn't count negative.

it's like WADR, you toss it out there and then there is no foul.

tem said...

"bed skirt?"

bed skirt is at home, not at the office.

If I make the final round (AHIIK), I will need to live blog from Vegas.

true story:

I convinced the receptionist that the reason we write "basura" on the trash is because that's the cleaning lady's name, and that's who she knows it's for her.

So, hilarity ensued when she was talking to the cleaning lady last night and kept calling her basura...which made the little mexican lady very angry.

nobody has explained to her yet why i'm laughing

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

And the winner gets Bozo. It'll be the traveling trophy.

"And the winner gets Bozo. It'll be the traveling trophy."

Pretending you're not angry is worth negative points

Who talks to the cleaning lady?

El Padrino said...

i think carolina makes me nervous now

tem is going to hate the TCS by tomorrow

Jugdish said...

They shouldn't. NFC South teams are horrible on the road

tem said...

"So I'm guessing tem lost in his shitty league yesterday"

no i won.

the receptionist.

Oh, well congratulations. That's awesome!



















(SSSSSSSSS)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Pretending you're not angry is worth negative points"


I'm confused by this

El Padrino said...

"They shouldn't. NFC South teams are horrible on the road"

true, no longer worried

El Padrino said...

but who's to say they would be on the road, only a game behind jints

both teams have tough 3 game slates

tem said...

"Oh, well congratulations. That's awesome!"

thanks, now i am in the playoffs.

and i am alive in the suicide pool too.

but i lost all of my fake money on centsports.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

But what happens when the Giants have to play @ Carolina?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Giants @ Carolina i2i?

me in 5 years said...

"but who's to say they would be on the road, only a game behind jints"

They'll lose @ jints & @ NO

me in 5 years said...

NFC South teams are 0-10 on the road against their division

me in 5 years said...

"Giants @ Carolina i2i?"

no

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Keith sounds bitter this morning.

You should get more sleep.

blue said...

New Orleans will be out of the playoffs at that point, so probably won't play hard

carolina will defeat the broncos easily

if they ran for 300 yards against the bucs, they might rush for 500 against the broncos.

me in 5 years said...

You would know what that is like

blue said...

managers who use the "i'm working from home because of the snow" excuse, are lame.

if they expect their employees to show up, they should show up.

El Padrino said...

either way they are the only threat to the giants making the super bowl unless one of the NFC East teams sneak in, eagles/boys

looks like the Cooley's are out of it

El Padrino said...

"if they expect their employees to show up, they should show up."


1000000%%%%%%%%

in regards to jug's "gay day off" link

does beth only work a half day tomorrow?

So basically, you can get the BD-P1500 for $105.11, but you need to buy four movies.
