And I know I can't live without my radio.

Per El P's request (what you thought I didn't see that comment?), I give you, The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News, because seriously, who doesn't like The 'News?



I just want to open with this comment:

"Donovan to UK, lock it up"

The prophet has spoken.

The Celtics are shutting down Kevin Maurice Garnett for the rest of the season. That's the price you pay for selling your soul to the devil, KG. It sucks when he comes to settle the tab. I just wish Boston would get a harder match up in the first round. Currently, it's Philly. If I was the Hawks head coach, I would tank the remaining games in hopes of going from the fourth the the sixth seed so they would have another shot at taking out the Celtics. Because they're probably looking at an early exit in round one against the Heat. How are the Heat a fifth seed? If I write a playoff preview, I will address that phenomenon.

The Braves are going to extend Chipper through 2012? And it could be a $61 million contract. Wow. Just...wow.

Speaking of baseball, can Monday just hurry up and get here already?

For those of you scoring at home, this last weekend I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond once and Home Depot twice.

P.S. - This is my last post. I quit. Someone's going to have to stake my spot. I haven't been around a whole lot because of work and the move, so it's time to hang it up. I hate you guys anyway.

The quitting part was an april fool's joke. HA!

Tyler said...

But I wasn't kidding about hating you guys.

Tyler said...

Ha! I WAS kidding about hating you guys.

Tyler said...

Except for Meiz. I really, really, really hate Meiz.

tem said...

i think the chipper deal is an april fools joke.

I know EP linked a story about Sheffield being released yesterday, but apparently none of us read it that carefully. Because this is an actual quote of his from it (and from every other article I've seen about it) and no one here has mentioned it yet:

"I wouldn't say I'm shocked, but I am surprised."

tem said...

"I wouldn't say I'm shocked, but I am surprised."


this is awesome, apparently now it is common to say.

tem said...

"I know EP linked a story about Sheffield being released yesterday, but apparently none of us read it."


this should neither shock nor surprise you.

tem said...

i had my first ever dual layer dream* last night. it really fucked with my head. my morning routine was all fucked up, i tried to use shampoo as body wash, i'm pretty sure i forgot to put on deodorant, i forgot my belt, but then remembered it...just a bad morning.


*dual layer dream = dream where you dream 1 thing and then in your dream wake up and realize that what was happening was just a dream then you go about your day, but then you wake up for real and realize it was 2 dreams in one.

tem said...

except for when i woke up from the 1st dream everything was all fucked up. my condo had all these pets in them from some chick that i apparently tried to have a threeway with (me, exfemtem and her, even though exfemtem and i were clearly broken up in the 2nd layer of the dream).

tem said...

i'm going to put the recap in my tuesday post. it will be good filler.

Beth said...

Dual layer dreams are both way cool and way disturbing at the same time. I remember seeing one in an older movie once too - An American Werewolf in London.

JFreak said...

I don't like this schedule.

tem said...

is this schedule waking up at the normal time for most people? or is it third shift or something?

JFreak said...

I'm working 8PM-8AM.

JFreak said...

sleep time.

tem said...

8pm-8am does suck.


why are they filming extreme makeover during those times? i guess they work 24/7?

El Padrino said...

"I'm working 8PM-8AM."

it's called work for a reason slapnuts

El Padrino said...

nice post T and thanks for the News

awesome

Beth said...

And kudos for the April Fools joke Tyler. Anyone else doing any today?

El Padrino said...

HDH moment of my day:

menu at the deli

Extra BACKON...... .50

El Padrino said...

"And kudos for the April Fools joke Tyler. Anyone else doing any today?"

got my wife already, i like to strike in the mornin when people are still groggy

Blue said...

"And kudos for the April Fools joke Tyler. Anyone else doing any today?"

cmblue tried to tell me she was pregnant this morning.

knowing it was a "fools" i asked "who's the father?"

tem said...

my brain pulled one on me already.

Blue said...

speaking of writing NBA playoff previews...i'll preview the West if Tyler wants to preview the Least.

tem said...

$50 for extra backon sounds pricey.

El Padrino said...

West preveiw

Lakers win

El Padrino said...

.50

Beth said...

EP, what'd you pull on cmep?

And blue, I thought about trying that same one with cmb but figured he'd see right thru it too.

I did however email a female friend confessing that I slept with my boss at work. :-) I don't see her buying it though.

Blue said...

"I don't see her buying it though."

if your boss is a lawyer she'll buy it.

Blue said...

the local radio station tried to pull an april fools joke, they brought in some shitty morning show guys to host the show saying that the normal guys had been fired...and people actually believed them.

tem said...

"cmb"

did we miss a wedding?

El Padrino said...

"EP, what'd you pull on cmep?"

Called her when I got off the train to tell her to meet me at the hospital. Told her I got into a fight. I told her to call me when she gets in the car so she calls me and that's when I said April Fool's.

She was the opposite of happy.

El Padrino said...

"And blue, I thought about trying that same one with cmb but figured he'd see right thru it too."

pregnancy never works

Beth said...

"if your boss is a lawyer she'll buy it"

He is but of course her response will probably be to sigh and say "damn, again beth???"

S

Beth said...

"cmb"
"did we miss a wedding?"

Oops, I meant fmb. Don't rush me tem!

Blue said...

i thought about telling my co-workers that cmblue and i are separating...they'd believe it, which i'm not sure is a good thing or a bad thing.

Blue said...

fuck jay cutler

tem said...

"Oops, I meant fmb. Don't rush me tem!"

your mind is rushing you, not me.

tem said...

broncos trading cutler is just an elaborate april fools joke.

the truth is that cutler and the new coach are butt buddies.

tem said...

i'd call exfemtem and say that i wanted to get back together as an april fool's joke, but she wouldn't answer the phone in the first place.

and if she did she'd just say no, so the joke wouldn't work well.

Beth said...

"i'd call exfemtem and say that i wanted to get back together as an april fool's joke, but she wouldn't answer the phone in the first place.

and if she did she'd just say no, so the joke wouldn't work well."

It's supposed to be an April Fools Day joke, not an April Fools Day threat.

Blue said...

here is my scenario...turn jay cutler into the modern day herschel walker...

get the 1st and 20th picks and a player from Detroit.

Draft the linebacker from Wake Forest #1. Draft BJ Raji at 12 if he's still there, if not, take Mark Sanchez, unless Stafford is still there. With the #20 pick, trade it for a 2nd and 3rd rounder, and begin to rebuild.

tem said...

haha, ISWYDT. funny.

tem said...

cutler is going to be a buccaneer.

El Padrino said...

tell her your dying and for benefit purposes (life insurance) you'd think it will be a good idea to get married

then when your married, say April fools

tem said...

what's this news about some idol member losing another family member?

that dude must have one hell of a pool.

Blue said...

let chris simms lose 10 games this year...if the broncos don't get sanchez or stafford, take Nate Davis in the 2nd or 3rd round and let mcdaniels teach him how to be Matt Cassell.

tem said...

"then when your married"


then the joke would be on me.

El Padrino said...

meetin

Blue said...

isn't the joke usually on you?

tem said...

haha, ISWYDT. funny.

Blue said...

i think i broke my foot, no fools

tem said...

i could change my facebook status to "just found out he is going to be a dad"

Beth said...

"haha, ISWYDT. funny."

Tem is recycling his comments now.

Blue said...

you could twitter

Blue said...

i'm refusing to join the face book

tem said...

good, facebook doesn't want you

tem said...

"Tem is recycling his comments now."

haha, ISWYDT. funny.

Blue said...

"good, facebook doesn't want you"

well i don't want them

kodiac said...

I like facebook, but drunk kod has made a number of faux *paws over the years on it

tem said...

kod is on the FB?

Blue said...

kod is not, but "hey there" is

kodiac said...

I'm not sure exactly what that means, but it made me Aitch

Blue said...

Tyler's favorite movie is "out of africa"

Blue said...

closely followed by "the engrish patient"

Blue said...

in other words...he's ghey

tem said...

he likes footloose then.

kodiac said...

I'm glad you cleared that up Tyler. I was wondering how you jumped from talking about writing a playoff preview for LOV to abruptly quitting within 2 paragraphs.

tem said...

i'm waiting for someone not to read the comments and volunteer to take tyler's place.

Blue said...

i'll take wednesdays

kodiac said...

i'm waiting for someone not to read the comments and volunteer to take tyler's place.

Steve? I wish he'd do a weekend post; the HDH alone would be HDH

Blue said...

or thursdays whichever works out best

Blue said...

if T hadn't put that at the top of the comments it would have worked probably

tem said...

"the HDH alone would be HDH"

yes, it would.

tem said...

didn't blue used to post, but then he quit?

Blue said...

at p10poon this is true

kodiac said...

yeah, I would like to see Blue do a weekly column; his comment to aitch ratio is second only to tem

kodiac said...

I just received the following email:

The BTS Conference is in just a couple of days. We are still even thought Bemidji has gotten a bit of snow.

-that's HDH HOF material right there

tem said...

tem's new facebook status is now:

"Just found out he is going to be a dad. "

Blue said...

that's only because the other guys have a lot of comments

El Padrino said...

"then when your married"


then the joke would be on me."


oh, i was under the impression you wanted this to happen

tem said...

i guess if i wanted it to happen then the temgagement would never have happened.

El Padrino said...

i'm very upset SI predicted the Mets over the Angles to win the WS

El Padrino said...

i guess if i wanted it to happen then the temgagement would never have happened.

you've expressed regret about it, or was that temwr187

tem said...

first comment on tem's facebook:

congrats!


second comment:

That post would mean you would have had to have sex with a girl. Happy April Fools Day

Blue said...

no regrets, that's my motto....that and everybody wang chung tonight.

El Padrino said...

"That post would mean you would have had to have sex with a girl. Happy April Fools Day"

he'd do well here

tem said...

"you've expressed regret about it, or was that temwr187"

i say lots of things when i am drunk. or even fake drunk.

or even sober.

tem said...

truth be told i regret it from time to time, but for the most part i am happy with the way it turned out.

Blue said...

"second comment:

That post would mean you would have had to have sex with a girl. Happy April Fools Day"

or you could be marrying a woman with kids that are your age.

tem said...

kod could post he is going to be a great grandfather and it would be 100% believable.

Meiz said...

Fuck you, Tyler

tem said...

the person who left the first comment on my FB page...i am not even positive how i know him.

Blue said...

maybe keith was the 2nd commentser

spaceman spiff said...

"i'm very upset SI predicted the Mets over the Angles to win the WS"

damn, seasons over already

tem said...

HUNGRY

tem said...

keith was not the 2nd commenter.

nor was meiz.

tem said...

neither were the 1st commenter either.


and rev was not either commenter either.

neither was hsilok.

spaceman spiff said...

"Iverson upset with bench role"

shocking

Keith S said...

Why was Tyler commenting here at 2:00 in the afternoon yesterday?

Blue said...

today's ghm submissions were OK

Beth said...

"tem's new facebook status is now:
"Just found out he is going to be a dad."

If I was on FB and if I was tem's FB friend (both huge if's I know), I'd have posted a comment to his status saying "dammit tem, I thought we were keeping this a secret for now! I haven't even told my mom yet!"

ns

Keith S said...

what's ghm?

El Padrino said...

but that is way your beth and everyone else is not

spaceman spiff said...

guess her muff

Keith S said...

"but that is way your beth and everyone else is not"

whoa

spaceman spiff said...

"(both huge if's I know)"

you have myspace, why is being on facebook a huge if

Keith S said...

"guess her muff"

Ah yes

Beth said...

"you have myspace, why is being on facebook a huge if"

Cause I'm hardly ever on myspace and am actually probably deleting my profile soon. MS and FB just aren't my thing.

Meiz said...

New lady is wildly unprofessional. Not just the phone calls, she spreads the newspaper all over the counter, and reads it that way. Pisses me the fuck off.

Blue said...

beth doesn't like to be "in touch"

Meiz said...

I know you're all very interested in the information about my awesome life that I provide.

Meiz said...

I'm actually beginning to think dummy >> new lady

Blue said...

how would you suggest she read the paper at work?

Meiz said...

I get most of my news from In Touch

El Padrino said...

Matrix, IV.

Meiz said...

"how would you suggest she read the paper at work?"


Not in the front of the store. Perhaps in the back area.

Blue said...

"Not in the front of the store. Perhaps in the back area."

hmm, but that seems inefficient

Blue said...

how can they make a matrix iv...nemo died.

kodiac said...

how can they make a matrix iv...nemo died.

it's an AF column

Blue said...

abercrombie and fitch?

Meiz said...

"hmm, but that seems inefficient"


Not so much

Meiz said...

You'd be shocked, but not surprised

Meiz said...

But enough about me. How about that GuessHerMuff? Hey? Hey?

spaceman spiff said...

"New lady is wildly unprofessional."

she works at a UPS store

Blue said...

i don't click on EP's links because they are usually filled with lies and propoganda anyway

El Padrino said...

"i don't click on EP's links because they are usually filled with lies and propoganda anyway"

you sound like meiz

Meiz said...

blue is smart

Meiz said...

"she works at a UPS store"

So?

Blue said...

i almost used "asswell" in an email to HR today...awsome*

spaceman spiff said...

boobage

Blue said...

spiff's links, i always click on.

Blue said...

the description could say "don't click on this" but if spiff posted it, i'm clicking

El Padrino said...

denied

Blue said...

san antonio is tanking so they can play NO in the 1st round..that's the only way you explain them losing to the Sonics

El Padrino said...

SA always Shaqs is down the stretch

Blue said...

i don't think they have Duncan or Manu playing right now either.

spaceman spiff said...

duncan played last night, but yea he doesnt play every game. i think manu came back too, he played the other night, but is rusty

tem said...

"dammit tem, I thought we were keeping this a secret for now! I haven't even told my mom yet!"


this needs to happen

Jugdish said...

this needs to happen



I'll post it.

Blue said...

jug lives

Blue said...

Jugdish said...

I was surprised I could get to this site and log on, usually we are mutumbo'd on everything.

The news job is good...Huey Lewis is a good guy

tem said...

comment 3 on FB:

"hahaha...did you have sex with my cat Friday? I like what the post above me said."

spaceman spiff said...

tem , update your status, 'problem solved, right cross to the belly did the trick'

tem said...

i was thinking of updating it as "false alarm, turns out my sister isn't pregnant"

tem said...

lunch time lull...

tem said...

or mega wall

El Padrino said...

coach gives kid Malibu Rum as a reward

El Padrino said...

chimp victim speaks

Blue said...

"i was thinking of updating it as "false alarm, turns out my sister isn't pregnant""


or "nevermind, my sister was playing a cruel april fools joke on me"

El Padrino said...

they are suing for 50MM like that bitch has that kind of money

spaceman spiff said...

"chimp victim speaks"

expect her to commit suicide soon

El Padrino said...

Got Obama's stimulus in the mail yesterday, anyone else?

El Padrino said...

CICI's pizza promotion

tem said...

"Got Obama's stimulus in the mail yesterday, anyone else?"

nope, was unaware he was sending out checks. thought his stimulus was through lowering the withholdings in your paychecks.

Keith S said...

comment

tem said...

good to see keef chime in.

Keith S said...

Just adding my $.02

Keith S said...

cmk tolt her parents that she's preggo

El Padrino said...

"nope, was unaware he was sending out checks. thought his stimulus was through lowering the withholdings in your paychecks."

wasn't a check, it was 3 pieces of chicken, pack of kool-aid and a dime bag of weed

tem said...

"cmk tolt her parents that she's preggo"

and its mine.

tem said...

"wasn't a check, it was 3 pieces of chicken, pack of kool-aid and a dime bag of weed"

you make a lot of money.

the weed only went to the wealthy. to get them hooked so that obama can legalize it and tax the hell out of it.

Keith S said...

Congrats

Keith S said...

I'll look forward to the child support checks

tem said...

haha, got you, April Fools!

Keith S said...

You son of a gun!

Keith S said...

I was about ready to have a talk with cmk

tem said...

yeah good thing i came clean.

it would have gotten out of control.

tem said...

that's me though, never let things go too far...engagement fine...marriage, now hold on a second.

Keith S said...

I would have hired EP to go to Ohio and take out your knees. But only because that's as high as he could reach.

tem said...

hilarious.

El Padrino said...

taking out knees is very effective

tem said...

i'd have hired hsilok as a body guard.

Tyler said...

Andy, tell Meiz I was joking about the hating him part.

Keith S said...

"i'd have hired hsilok as a body guard."

Wise move.

tem said...

meeting time.

El Padrino said...

"Andy, tell Meiz I was joking about the hating him part."


chuckles

Keith S said...

Tyler,
No on the trade?

Keith S said...

You can finish your NL preview now, EP

Keith S said...

*AL preview

El Padrino said...

just about done, but yeah i mentioned the si thing earlier

Keith S said...

"just about done, but yeah i mentioned the si thing earlier"

Only 2 out of the 13 writers picked the Mess to win it all

Keith S said...

I think I will pick the Mess to win it all, too

Keith S said...

Beltran to win MVP.
Manuel to win Mgr of the Year
BBRod win Cy Young
Some Mess rookie to win ROY

El Padrino said...

why dont you pick the reds?

Keith S said...

I'm not a homer

Keith S said...

And they suck

Beth said...

That SI article was interesting in that one of the writers is predicting a Braves ROY who will actually be starting the season in AAA. Wonder if the writer realizes that.

Keith S said...

"That SI article was interesting in that one of the writers is predicting a Braves ROY who will actually be starting the season in AAA. Wonder if the writer realizes that."

Most of the AL writers picked Wieters or Price to win ROY, and they're bolth starting in AAA.

Longoria started in AAA last year and won. Ryan Howard started his rookie season in AAA and won.

El Padrino said...

Schaefer kid? beth

Beth said...

No, Hanson.

Blue said...

price sucks

Blue said...

mmmm bop

Beth said...

"Most of the AL writers picked Wieters or Price to win ROY, and they're bolth starting in AAA."

Are either of them pitchers? Hanson is, although I'm not sure if that makes it more or less likely.

Blue said...

i've come to the realization that i know nothing about beisbol

Blue said...

price is a pitcher

Beth said...

"mmmm bop"

He's not one of THOSE Hansons, thank god.

El Padrino said...

i like schaefers
