Die Unit

Braves were busy yesterday. Traded for Tem's only good player, Nate McClouth. Then they dumped Glavine. He could help out a lot of teams with a veteran's minimum contract. Not a lot of risk and you could get a decent lefthander out of it. Not sure why the Braves just cut bait on him. Maybe Beth can shed some light on the subject.

Rev must be loving that Westbrook is getting surgery. They drafted a back, right? So it won't be a huge deal.

God doesn't want Randy Johnson to get his 300th win. Rain will pour on the Giants until The Big Unit dies.

Sosa is going to officially retire soon. Yeah, you probably thought he was already retired. No biggie. He's a hall of famer. No proof of steroids. No reason to keep him out. A quote from the ESPN article about it, "Known as the "Caribbean Bambino" after his home run race in 1998 with Mark McGwire." What the hell? I've never heard him called that ever. Nice job making things up ESPN.

People are playing tennis in France.

It's June and hockey is being played. Stop it.

It is nearly two months after the NBA regular season ended. Hurry it up Stern.

Iranian Presidential Debate:

"There are two ways of confronting the country's problems," Mousavi said. "One is through a management style based on adventurism, instability, play-acting, exaggerations, wrongdoing, being secretive, self-importance, superficiality and ignoring the law. The second way is based on realism, respect, openness, collective wisdom and avoiding extremism."

Go Mousavi!!! You can dooo it.

Beth said...

"Not sure why the Braves just cut bait on him. Maybe Beth can shed some light on the subject."

2 words on why Glavine was cut - Tommy Hanson. He's been amazing at AAA this year (1.49 ERA and .169 opponents’ batting average, with 90 strikeouts and 17 walks in 66-1/3 innings) and regularly throws 95-96 mph and has even been clocked at 99 mph occasionally. He's now been called up and is starting Saturday.

"women's tennis is on espn instead of mike and mike...that sucks"

But what if it was THIS female tennis player being shown?

Jugdish said...

dude!

Jugdish said...

that would be different

Beth said...

I know she's Romanian and is supposedly a "promising" player, but no idea how good she really is. However, I have heard she's having breast reduction surgery at some point.

Steve said...

"But what if it was THIS female tennis player being shown?"

good lord. she doesn't really need a tennis racket.

H said...

From LoVad:

"Wow, EP. Is your vagina sore? Kinda sensitive today huh?

-as expected, aitch summs it up to perfection"


i missed that comment.


well done, H"

I was surprised no one commented on this sooner. Now I see why. I was proud of it.

"Can only hope that people died when it broke up and didn't have to think about everything while falling 35k feet."

I can't even imagine the terror that a person in that situation would feel. I hope no one was alive or conscious at that point.

Jugdish said...

EP was mad sensitive yesterday, yo!

H said...

Re: cork bats

Isn't a cork bat lighter? Wouldn't that generate more bat speed? I'm guessing that is some type of advantage.

Jugdish said...

you can get more bat speed with a wiffle ball bat too

Steve said...

"EP was mad sensitive yesterday, yo!"


first of the month.

tem said...

i'm not a scientist.

Beth said...

Jug, you ARE a scientist, right? We need at least one on LOV I think.

Meiz said...

Can't wait to get the fuck outta here today

Jugdish said...

no, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

H said...

Alena Schurkova, a south african volleyball player, went on the record saying the tennis player shouldn't get her tittays shrunk. She used herself and Serena Williams as examples of successful, big breasted athletes. I like this subject matter.

Beth said...

Close enough!

tem said...

i might have to do work today.

Meiz said...

"Jug, you ARE a scientist, right? We need at least one on LOV I think."


Keith is the scientist

Steve said...

"Serena Williams as examples of successful, big breasted athletes"


she forgot about phil mickelson

Beth said...

"Alena Schurkova, a south african volleyball player, went on the record saying the tennis player shouldn't get her tittays shrunk."

Easy for Alena to say, she's nowhere as big as the tennis player gal. Here is her pic.

I played tennis in high school and can't imagine trying to play at a high level with big boobs. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your point of view, big boobs while playing was never an issue for me.

Beth said...

"she forgot about phil mickelson"

Hilarity.

tem said...

ESPN seemed to imply that Glavine was a salary dump. Talked about how the Braves would owe him $1M and then $2.5M if they put him on the roster.

Didn't seem like a lot of $$$ to me. Well a lot of cash for them.

H said...

Beth, has the size of your breasts helped or hindered your career?

tem said...

"It's June and hockey is being played. Stop it.

It is nearly two months after the NBA regular season ended. Hurry it up Stern."


troof. the post seasons for these sports take waaaay too long.

Beth said...

"ESPN seemed to imply that Glavine was a salary dump."

For what it's worth the Braves GM said it was not a financial decision but a performance consideration. I believe him cause like you said Tem, in the grand scheme of things they weren't going to be paying him that much.

Meiz said...

"Beth, has the size of your breasts helped or hindered your career?"


With Beth, its not about her breasts, its about the orifices.

Beth said...

"Beth, has the size of your breasts helped or hindered your career?"

When I was "tables" I'd say they hurt cause the waitresses with bigger boobs normally did better in tips it seemed. But now that I'm in an office I like to think that it's irrelevant.

Jugdish said...

But now that I'm in an office I like to think that it's irrelevant.


all women would like to think that

Jugdish said...

blue fires chicks with small breasts

Beth said...

"all women would like to think that"

Yeah, notice I didn't say size IS irrelevant, just that I like to think it is. I know what pigs you guys are. (wadr)

tem said...

dressing at the appropriate level of sluttiness is key for an office position.

H said...

"Here is her pic."

Not sure if that's the same one. Article I read said she was a 32E

Meiz said...

Wait. There's an E?

tem said...

RE: pirates trade


beth are any of those braves players the pirates got any good?

or is the whole trade based on the entertainment value of "gorkys"?

tem said...

"Wait. There's an E?"

it goes past H or something. in the south lots of girls are triple K.

Jugdish said...

I know what pigs you guys are.



well yeah...

Jugdish said...

in the south lots of girls are triple K.



ISWYDT

Beth said...

"beth are any of those braves players the pirates got any good?"

I haven't heard of them before but that doesn't necessarily mean much. One local sportscaster did refer to the Braves as giving up "a lot" for what it's worth.

H said...

"Wait. There's an E?"

I dated a girl who was a 36D. After we broke up, she put on some lbs and got as big as a 42G. She's since had reduction.

Meiz said...

So, the E joke went over everybody's head?

tem said...

yep

H said...

No EP yet today. After yesterday, he must have taken his ball and gone home.

Beth said...

"So, the E joke went over everybody's head?"

No I got it, but jug already commented on it.

ToddPacker said...

"One local sportscaster did refer to the Braves as giving up "a lot" for what it's worth"

braves got a steal in that trade... mcclouth is solid. seems like the pirates could have got more

ToddPacker said...

"No EP yet today. After yesterday, he must have taken his ball and gone home"

what happened to ep?

H said...

I just had a fellow cab driver come up to me and start yelling about something. I told him to take a swing if had a problem. He said no because I was trying to bait him so I could sue him, then he turned and got back in his cab.

Fake tough guys make me laugh

Meiz said...

The streets are rough

Beth said...

"braves got a steal in that trade... mcclouth is solid. seems like the pirates could have got more"

I liked the fact that he's relatively young and under contract for 3 more years at about 5 mill per year.

tem said...

"I just had a fellow cab driver come up to me and start yelling about something."


no honor amongst cabbies?

tem said...

"seems like the pirates could have got more"

more than gorkys????

tem said...

tem does not get the E joke.

H said...

"what happened to ep?"

He felt he was being picked on.

I saw tem's E joke. If yours was a joke meiz it went over my head

Meiz said...

Seinfeld

ToddPacker said...

None. Cabbies be thieving you*

no ep means early morning walls.

RE: Westbrook

"The Eagles called the procedure "a debridement" of the ankle."


debridement is like a divorce? wtf is debridement?

Meiz said...

And David Carradine(sp?) is dead

tem said...

yeah just saw that meiz.

wow.

tem said...

72yrs old.

thought he was younger.

kodiac said...

wow.

-yeah, allegedly he hung himself (although his agent said it was "natural causes")

tem said...

ISBNS that a 72yr old died.

kodiac said...

he was great in Kill Bill

kodiac said...

ISAS if he hung himself; old people rarely commit suicide

tem said...

"ISAS if he hung himself"

same

Beth said...

I sure hope EP has a meeting this morning. If he's staying away cause he got picked on yesterday that's a true zeke move (wadr zeke).

kodiac said...

Home sick and the Twins game this afternoon is not televised

WOE

tem said...

can you watch it online?

blue said...

so, does H have a laptop in his cab or something?

blue said...

or just a really good fone?

kodiac said...

can you watch it online?

-good call; never tried it before, but worth a shot

re: breast amongst female athletes.

i dated a girl that complained she couldn't golf because her tits were too big.

13-year old Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow was stoned to death in Somalia by insurgents because she was raped. Reports indicate that was raped by three men while traveling by foot to visit her grandmother in conflict capital, Mogadishu. When she went to the authorities to report the crime, they accused her of adultery and sentenced her to death. Aisha was forced into a hole in a stadium of 1,000 onlookers as 50 men buried her up to the neck and cast stones at her until she died. When some of the people at the stadium tried to save her, militia opened fire on the crowd, killing a boy who was a bystander.

A witness who spoke to the BBC's Today programme said she had been crying and had to be forced into a hole before the stoning, reported to have taken place in a football stadium. ... She said: 'I'm not going, I'm not going. Don't kill me, don't kill me.' "A few minutes later more than 50 men tried to stone her." The witness said people crowding round to see the execution said it was "awful".

-gasp; most horrifying thing I've read in a while

tem said...

"so, does H have a laptop in his cab or something?"

good question

tem said...

debbie downer story.

she was married?

no kidding. how to people get so wrong.

"I really think Chicago gave up a lot to get a quarterback who they believe is going to be the final piece of the puzzle. But I am not sure he has won enough to merit that yet." (Tony Dungy)

-Because they gave up Orton? I think he's one of the worst starting QB's in the NFL.

Jugdish said...

-Because they gave up Orton? I think he's one of the worst starting QB's in the NFL.


that's not all they gave up, but I still like the trade.

blue said...

"Because they gave up Orton? I think he's one of the worst starting QB's in the NFL."

and 2-#1 picks and a 3rd rounder

blue said...

"that's not all they gave up, but I still like the trade"

so do I. Denver won't have to tie up a shitload of cap space with a crybaby overrated whiner

tem said...

and denver has chris simms.

blue said...

fucking spiff picked up tommy hanson in both leagues...i hope he sucks donkey dick

blue said...

i'm still almost willing to bet that whomever ends up the starting QB for the broncos, throws for more yards and TDs than cutler does this year.

kodiac said...

and 2-#1 picks and a 3rd rounder

-oh, I thought it was 1-#1 and 2 3rd rounders.
*Still, I think the Bears came out way ahead in that trade. But maybe it's because I've watched Orton suck many many times...and I'm not all that familiar with Cutler's play

Jugdish said...

could be close, denver has better receivers than Chicago does

Jugdish said...

Chicago will probably run more than Denver too

kodiac said...

could be close, denver has better receivers than Chicago does

-yeah, Chicago has been pretty thin in the receiver department for a long time (like the Vikes)

Jugdish said...

however it will be nice to have a QB who can throw it down field. The Bears best long play last year was chucking it down field and hoping for defensive pass interference.

kodiac said...

Chicago will probably run more than Denver too

-yeah, Forte was a great pick. I think it's going to go Chi, Minni, GB, Detroit next year

Beth said...

No one's mentioned it yet but kudos to freak for doing a real post for a change and not just slapping a couple videos in it.

kodiac said...

NFC North should be a pretty tough division next year (first time in a long time)...well, at least 3 teams should be tough

tem said...

good call beth.

today's post did not suck.

Jugdish said...

Is the Rosencoptor gonna get tje nod for the Vikings?

kodiac said...

No one's mentioned it yet but kudos to freak for doing a real post for a change and not just slapping a couple videos in it.

this is true

blue said...

yeah the broncos are going to throw the ball all over the field...like the pats have been doing the last few years.

kodiac said...

Is the Rosencoptor gonna get tje nod for the Vikings?

I sure hope so; I'm ready to call the TJ experiment a failure and move on....I hope Childress is as well

blue said...

the retard will make the lions competitive the 2nd half of the year.

blue said...

according to john clayton...tavaris will be the starter unless bret shows up

kodiac said...

I have very high hopes for Percy Harvin as well; I love the pick

kodiac said...

according to john clayton...tavaris will be the starter unless bret shows up

-yeah, that's what I've been hearing as well. With TJ, Harvin and AP...at least the wildcat will be fun to watch

blue said...

they'll sign mike vick, because people care less about dogs in the norse

"seems like the pirates could have got more"

Somali Pirates are better negotiators than Pittsburgh Pirates

kodiac said...

It looks like the Williams' will be suspended though. They still have their state law claims, but I don't see it happening.
-Technically I get the argument that you can't contract around state law (even in a CBA) but a decision against the NFL would create a huge shitstorm for every professional league. Pragmatically, I don't see Williams' prevailing.

Jugdish said...

they are probably better ball players too

kodiac said...

hi-fucking-larity

Beth said...

"I have very high hopes for Percy Harvin as well; I love the pick"

I've seen him shred the Dawgs enough while at UF. He's clearly got the talent so it seems his success will depend on how much he can stay out of trouble.

your face is not > d-

May the Fourth be with me said...

So?

kodiac said...

I've seen him shred the Dawgs enough while at UF. He's clearly got the talent so it seems his success will depend on how much he can stay out of trouble.

*Vikes passed on Sapp for that reason...wooops

ToddPacker said...

"I have very high hopes for Percy Harvin as well; I love the pick"

harvin is made of paper. i don't see him lasting in the NFL

that's good news for Bears fans

kodiac said...

harvin is made of paper. i don't see him lasting in the NFL

-they said the same thing about AP...and while he has had some injuries, I don't think any Vikings fan regrets the pick (the AP pick I mean...I know many who don't like the Harvin pick)

Apparently KG is not aware of O:FB

Kevin Garnett's recovery from right knee surgery apparently is going well. Garnett expressed optimism in a recent conversation with team owner Wyc Grousbeck, who spoke yesterday at a corporate sponsorship event at the Boston Harbor Hotel. "I talked to [Garnett] and he guaranteed the championship in 2010 and in 2011," Grousbeck said. "He was as fired up as he's ever been."

in any case, the stand up game is fun. not too complex, not too simple.

the ground game is really complex though. if you want to do well on the ground you have to either be perfect with the right stick thing or just mash the fuck out of buttons and hope something works out.

The correct term is holder-outer. Thanks.

he is the new ep, since keef ran off ep

tem usually owns no more than 3 video games at a time.

he trades in the old ones.*



*except madden 07(maybe 06) which tem's mom bought for him so he won't trade it in.

well i save lots on shampoo, one bottle lasts like a year so i use that extra cash to buy beer.
