Maneater.

I just watched the Bulls beat the Pistons. Spanked is more like it. Pistons made a run at the end, that's why the score says they only lost by eight, but they were getting handled for most of the game. Now, I know Iverson is out, Rip was out AND Sheed was out, but the Pistons are clinging to seventh place right now. What happened to these guys? Didn't they used to be good? They probably still have the same sense of entitlement that they've had for the six or seven years. They think they should be playing in the FInals for a championship, but they've just been getting worse with each year. That A.I. move may save them money in the long run, but Chauncey was really a major reason for their success. They've got a lot of nice young talent, but it's going to be interesting how they transition to them and how they get rid of their big contracts. Dumars gonna have to make that money; he's got his work cut out for him.

They're saying that the Hibachi should return this Saturday. Thank God. It's been way too long since we last heard from the original Black President. Personally, I've missed him. A lot.

In a mind-bottling move, the Rays are rumored to be sending David Price down to the minors. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

I will bet anyone a kajillion dollars that FOX will offer Schilling a post-season announcing gig, just so they can put him in the box with Joe Buck. It's gonna be awesome. Just make sure your mute button is working in September. You're gonna need it.

More on Schilling: I called in sick on Monday. Turned on the TV and it was all over ESPN. They asked Peter Gammons if Schilling is a Hall of Famer and of course Gammons says, "Yes" and then goes on to say that he has mediocre season stats, but excellent post-season stats. Then, in an attempt to not sound like a Boston homer, he talks about Schilling's performance in the 1993 series when he was wilth the Phillies. C'mon ESPN, do we really need to hear what Gammons has to say? Seriously, I knew the answer to the question before it was asked and Gammons couldn't wait to answer it. It was just unnecessary.

Then ESPN Classic preempted their normal programming to show Schilling games. Funny thing was, they showed that 2001 Game Seven World Series game where Randy Johnson was more of the hero than Schilling was. Dude pitched two innings on zero days rest and got a second win in just as many days. I still love that game for a couple of reasons. A. It was a Game Seven, who doesn't get excited about that? B. Schilling/Johnson combo with the aforementioned Randall David Johnson coming in to pitch after he pitched seven innings the night before. C. It ended in bottom of the ninth with a walk-off single. D. The Yankees lost. I love that game.

that was the last time the yankees won anything and i still remember the flutter of the ball of gonzo's bat, it hung over the 2b base bag forever

see cutter

hit cutter

El Padrino said...

*i meant the yankees haven't won anything in a long time

also that game was on a 9/11 doc, that was 2001, in november and clearly shows us that god doesnt decide outcomes of baseball games

El Padrino said...

beff is slipping

tem said...

" clearly shows us that god doesnt decide outcomes of baseball games"

because god should have rewarded NYC with a world series because two of their buildings fell down?

Beth said...

"beff is slipping"

I just wanted to make sure you missed me, and it worked...

tem said...

who is the new girl?

El Padrino said...

"because god should have rewarded NYC with a world series because two of their buildings fell down?"

well that sort, the idea that it would have lifted spirits in nyc, if you watch the doc where the mayor was sitting he had some special guests with him and in the skyboxes were 9-11 widows

if you recall that year the patriots won the super bowl and the announcer signed off by sayin, "And today, we are all Patriots", as Joe Andruzzi waved the flag

El Padrino said...

do you have to say buildings fell down?

it was murder ya commie fuck

building falling down would be like a construction accident

El Padrino said...

"I just wanted to make sure you missed me, and it worked..."

i would miss you less if you mailed me some panties

tem said...

damn greedy nycers. getting to the WS wasn't enough, they wanted to win it too.


fucking greedy bastards. what about pittsburgh? their economy is in ruins and the pirates never even have winning seasons, all they have is the steelers. detroit has nothing.

greedy new yorkers.

tem said...

"building falling down would be like a construction accident"

it was a construction accident. the buildings were meant to withstand such an attack, but did not due to poor NYC construction.

El Padrino said...

"damn greedy nycers. getting to the WS wasn't enough, they wanted to win it too.


fucking greedy bastards. what about pittsburgh? their economy is in ruins and the pirates never even have winning seasons, all they have is the steelers. detroit has nothing.

if pittsburgh were attacked by extreme islamics i would root for them to win the WS

El Padrino said...

"it was a construction accident. the buildings were meant to withstand such an attack, but did not due to poor NYC construction."

this comment may lead to el pad going apeshit and taking out half of wall street.

maybe not a bad idear. if he could frame someone else for it then he could move up and be in charge.

Jugdish said...

I don't think that ep was implying that God SHOULD reward nyc

"this comment may lead to el pad going apeshit and taking out half of wall street."

taking out half of wall street."



my guess is gollum is the first to go.

I'm sure cmep would be very understanding if I did that.

Blue said...

cmblue likes it when we get panties in the mail

El Padrino said...

man you guys are ruthless, i'm gonna eat my bagel and relax for a minute, hopefully the usa bashing will stop by then

Jugdish said...

Send him a box of fresh Georgia air with a card that says you don't wear panties.

El Padrino said...

"I'm sure cmep would be very understanding if I did that."

send them here you fool, i also have a po box from me gamblin' days

Beth said...

"send them here you fool, i also have a po box from me gamblin' days"

I like how you're giving additional instructions as if there's a chance I'll actually send you some...

Blue said...

so Josh McDaniels showed up at his press conference yesterday with a Brown's jersey and cutler's name on the back?

El Padrino said...

"cmblue likes it when we get panties in the mail"

well i do not have a duck bill, so i'll choose cow

if you had a duck bill you could tell waitresses to put it on your bill.

short mini-skirt lady came back from vacation today because she was bored.

she was supposed to be off all week.


who does that?

Jugdish said...

maybe she had an appointment with hr again...

Blue said...

she's looney tunes

Jugdish said...

keef sanchez her and send her back home

Blue said...

i told cmblue the keith sanchez story...she thinks we're all morons...

Jugdish said...

what do you refer to lov as when you tell her these stories?

Blue said...

a blog of idiots

Blue said...

she knows about lov...and thinks it's the dumbest.thing.evar!

Blue said...

except beth, she likes beth

Jugdish said...

I refer to it as "this sports blog I chat on" to cmjug. She shakes her head at the stories.

Blue said...

yes, i just call it "the blog"

Blue said...

at my old job she'd always ask "do you actually do any work, or just chat on a blog all day"

i told her that was a dum question

Blue said...

"She shakes her head at the stories."

keith sanchez her

Jugdish said...

keith sanchez her


I can, now that I know what it is


thanks keef!

tem said...

"short mini-skirt lady came back from vacation today because she was bored."

she heard you were firing someone.

tem said...

el pad, is the market going to crash back down to 6500ish soon?

El Padrino said...

AIG Resignation letter. MUST-READ. AWESOME.

Blue said...

so i've decided, i'm doing the firing in the morning tomorrow...because i'm off on friday.

after discussions, the morning wins

Blue said...

she doesn't come in until 10 or 11, so it really won't be first thing in the morning

tem said...

well good luck with the firing.

i can't imagine it will be easy.

tem said...

AIG resignation letter was interesting.


It has to do with politics though and tem hates politics.

tem said...

US government needs to scale back.

1 senator per state.

house of representative needs to be like 200 members tops.

too many cooks in the kitchen.

Jugdish said...

why are you firing her again?

Blue said...

"i can't imagine it will be easy."

i'm hoping she just takes her check and leaves, and doesn't have a lot of questions.

she's only been here 4 months

Beth said...

Blue, my fiance has had to do a few firings and I know one thing he says is VERY important is to always have someone else sit in on the firing, even if they don't say anything or participate. That way you have a witness if the fired person later claims you did or said something inappropriate or that you didn't really say or do.

Jugdish said...

That way you have a witness if the fired person later claims you keef sanchezed her or said something inappropriate or that you didn't really say or do.


fixed

tem said...

blue is firing because she did not put out.

Beth said...

Good fix.

Blue said...

"why are you firing her again?"

because she shows up an hour to an hour and a half late every day. And then doesn't get anything done when she is here.

Blue said...

yeah, our HR rep is going to be there too.

Blue said...

having an extra person there also makes it easier, so hopefully she'll be intimidated and not ask a bunch of questions or get mad and Cho me...or even worse, Keith Sanchez me.

El Padrino said...

beth were you "touched" when you got laid off from the diner?

tem said...

being keith sanchezed is worse than being choed?

Blue said...

i would think so

it's a lot more humiliating

El Padrino said...

"el pad, is the market going to crash back down to 6500ish soon?"

i think it gives back at some point but it seems as if 6500 was the bottom, maybe back down to 7000

tem said...

well next time i see you i will shoot you instead of keith sanchezing you.

Blue said...

ok, next time

tem said...

ok

El Padrino said...

okay

"Funny thing was, they showed that 2001 Game Seven World Series game where Randy Johnson was more of the hero than Schilling was"

I was at that game, about 10 rows from the top of the stadium. Best game I've ever been to, considering what was at stake.

Budinger's BFF said...

"i still remember the flutter of the ball of gonzo's bat, it hung over the 2b base bag forever"

You have a terrible memory. It went directly over Jeter's head.

gee ya think?

El Padrino said...

yeah but it seemed like it sort of bent opver jeter's head, like it was straight for a second, hung, slo mo, then curved over jeter's head

like a cue shot

Beth said...

"beth were you "touched" when you got laid off from the diner?"

To use one of your words - ERRONEOUS!! I was not laid off and it wasn't a diner - I quit my job at a sports bar. So there.

And the Stafford thing was already linked here? Clearly I missed that.

Budinger's BFF said...

Maybe it wasn't linked, just talked about by mize & kod. Kod said something like you don't have to be a genius to get a good Wunderlich score because it's like a 3rd grade test

re: Pittsburgh economy

I read an article somewhere a month or so ago and it said that Pittsburgh's economy actually wasn't in that bad shape.

it said something to the effect that Pittsburgh never really benefitted from the housing bubble because their economy was in bad shape during that time (steel) - people didn't scoop up houses and over-extend themselves.

now that the housing market has gone to shit, they haven't really been effected. Also, they have seen a resurgence from biotech companies and something else.

it was a good article, it also tried to compare it to what Detroit is going through now.

re-RIF

Steve said...

Res Letter. I think it was written and leaked intentionally to give a little Woe to AIG Execs.

I haven't looked this guy up yet, but because he discussed salary information in the letter, isn't it confidential?

isiah thomas said...

Res Letter. I think it was written and leaked intentionally to give a little Woe to AIG Execs.

I think you missed the point of his message then dumb dumb.

the guy wasn't responsible for AIG's downfall, he was promised things by AIG and lied to. Now he (and people like him at AIG) are becoming the witches in the current AIG witch hunt being run by Congress.

Steve said...

"I think you missed the point of his message then dumb dumb."


i didn't miss the point of the letter. i'm questioning it's authenticity. was it a real res letter or a marketing tool.

try to keep up.

Steve said...

all i was really asking was are Res letters that contain salary information confidential?

if so, then it might just be a marketing tool.

Jugdish said...

He only disclosed his bonus/salary right? If he leaked it, what is the big deal?

Not sure how letter got leaked though.

Jugdish said...

and to hell with that confidential stuff. If they are getting bailout money we deserve to know where it goes.

El Padrino said...

it was a real letter, forwarded to the ny times by the writer himself

he chose, obviously, to disclose his own salary

El Padrino said...

"and to hell with that confidential stuff. If they are getting bailout money we deserve to know where it goes."

notl iking that comment jug

isiah thomas said...

and to hell with that confidential stuff. If they are getting bailout money we deserve to know where it goes.

this is on congress not the company. Congress should make AIG bring them the bills and not blindly hand over billy-yons.

Jugdish said...

tax payers are responsible for the bailout money, we get the bill.

Jugdish said...

this is on congress not the company. Congress should make AIG bring them the bills and not blindly hand over billy-yons.



agreed

isiah thomas said...

and to hell with that confidential stuff. If they are getting bailout money we deserve to know where it goes.

and while previously against these bonuses, after reading that letter, if the guy was promised something and he wasn't part of the problem area.....pay dat mayne his mon-ee.

Blue said...

yeah, i feel for the guys getting hammered by congress and the general public

it's not their fault that management fucked up and kilt their company...

this is what i said would happen if banks became "nationalized" or had executive salary caps...the good execs will just go somewhere else, and these nationalized banks will have losers running them, much like congress.

Steve said...

yea, plus. We're talking about what, 0.005 percent of the bailout money or so.

It's starting to feel like the bonus money is distracting from the big picture. Like what are the doing with the other 180 billion.

Blue said...

i wasn't against the boni per se...because shit, if you do your job, and you do a damn good job of it, you should get compensated as such.

I'm sure they didn't ask this dude if he wanted the gov't bailout money.

Jugdish said...

yea, plus. We're talking about what, 0.005 percent of the bailout money or so.


true, but its a little symbolic at the same time. Most people react and form their opinions on headlines only and it pisses people off to see them get rewarded when the company has been doing such a shitty job.

Jugdish said...

It also looks bad when some of them get their bonuses and then leave the company.

I'm surprised there isn't some kind of minimum time they have to stay with the company when they receive a bonus like that. I have to pay back tuition assistance money I used last summer because it hasn't been 12 months since then and I'm leaving.

woe

El Padrino said...

i just wrote like 800 angry words about this whole situation

El Padrino said...

i feel so much better

Jugdish said...

yeah, i feel for the guys getting hammered by congress and the general public


woe


what kind of exposure are they getting individually? None. They walk down the street and no one knows who they are. They just read the negative press. They are still making damn good money too.

Jugdish said...

If that dudes letter is legit, then props to him for doing the job the way its supposed to be done.

Jugdish said...

these were retention bonuses, they already served their time and the bonus was the end-game.

El Padrino said...

"shameless blog plug?"

i guess, i make no money so not sure if that counts, just sharing my thoughs

El Padrino said...

"these were retention bonuses, they already served their time and the bonus was the end-game."

dont be confused about the word BONUS, like zeke said they already worked for it, basically it's a year's salary

Jugdish said...

i guess, i make no money so not sure if that counts, just sharing my thoughs


I read...good stuff.

Jugdish said...

dont be confused about the word BONUS, like zeke said they already worked for it, basically it's a year's salary


that is the kind of info that needs to be released to the public then.

El Padrino said...

"that is the kind of info that needs to be released to the public then."

why, then the media cant slant it to one side silly

tem said...

bonus is a poor choice of a word for it. bonus implies something above and beyond regular compensation, this is just their compensation.

they get a $1 salary and then get a payment at the end.

this isn't a bonus for a job well done, it is payment for a job done.

El Padrino said...

for people like steve and kod who always need thier news to be slanted, manipulated and untruthful

Jugdish said...

Do they typically make $1 a year, or is that something new?

tem said...

bonus = bad word

i2i2i

isiah thomas said...

that is the kind of info that needs to be released to the public then.

I think that was the intent of having the letter going public, not some nefarious scheme to get sympathy for AIG execs. (*cough, dsteve, *cough*)

Jugdish said...

why, then the media cant slant it to one side silly

I'd still like to see it...sheds a new light on things for me anyways

tem said...

"Do they typically make $1 a year, or is that something new?"

not sure.

isiah thomas said...

Do they typically make $1 a year, or is that something new?

I believe these people were still getting paid their regular salary on top of the retention bonus.

the $1 thing is something relatively new, brought about by grandstanding congressmen.

Jugdish said...

not sure.


i was under the impression that some were doing that because of the current crisis...

tem said...

this should just go to judge judy.

in 10 minutes she'd make a ruling and be done with it.

Jugdish said...

Well...either way its going to be hard to generate sympathy for these people regardless of the spin media puts on it because of what the general public is going through...job loss, foreclosures, etc.

Jugdish said...

in 10 minutes she'd make a ruling and be done with it.


and chew some ass...maybe even handout a keef sanchez or two.

tem said...

dude in the letter said he was getting a $1 salary plus the payment at the end.

i think a lot of execs have been doing it that way for the last 2 or so years (ford ceo i think, maybe chase guy too come to mind). but i do not know how many of the AIG folks were doing it.
