H on Entourage and the myth of NFL scheduling parity...

I'm quite sick of hearing about the NFL striving for parity through their strength of schedule. It is a complete farce. Every year coming into the season, we hear complaints about teams' schedules. This team's schedule is too easy based on last year, that team's is too hard. Morons. Each year 14 of the 16 games on your favorite team's schedule is predetermined YEARS in advance. You play each team in your division twice (6 games). And every team in your division plays each team in another division within your conference (4 games) and every team in a division in the other conference (4 games). These 8 games are known way in advance. So only 2 games or 12.5% of the schedule is the result of last year's performance. But I guess kudos to the NFL for convincing the average fan of this myth.

Has anyone else been peeping game on this season of Entourage? I gotta say, it can be eerie when art imitates life. That is sort of happening with the Eric, Sloan, Ashley story arc. It is always awkward watching episodes with FB (that's f**k buddy, not Facebook). I think she is starting to realize that she is the Ashley to ExfmH's Sloan. This could end badly.

Memo to President Obama: Get off my fu**ing TV! Seriously. I'm not ready to make a decision on his presidency yet. It is still too early for that. But doesn't he have a country to run? We are facing a hugh economic crisis, a divisive health care situation and war on two fronts. Why is he hosting NASCAR drivers at the white house??? Do your job and stop trying to be a rockstar. You have more important things to address.

Memo to Brett Favre: just tell whatever team you want to play for that you don't want to go to training camp. This retire/unretire BS is getting tired. We've seen this movie before. It's boring.

Hey ESPN, Favre is not the Messiah. There are other things going on in sports. I get it. It's a story. It doesn't need to occupy half an hour of SC. Get it together.

I think I'm done...though I am a bit fired up today so I may update later.

Early aitch anger, well done.

Beth said...

And how's this for a pitching matchup - Jake Peavy vs. Tim Hudson on Sunday. Only thing is, it's in AAA.

It's only like 15 minutes from where I live. If it wasn't a 2:00 game when it will be like 90 degrees I'd be tempted to go.

Aitch said...

I hate these verizon wireless radio ads. I will tell u a great story. I'm gonna hunt you down and murder you, verizon spokesguy

Aitch said...

You should go Beth. You can't handle 90 degrees?

Beth said...

Well it's 2-3 hours in the direct sun. I can handle it but it wouldn't be fun. I might look into seating to see if there are any undercover that we can get though.

Aitch said...

i can't imagine this discussion lasted long...who decided/thought they weren't?

blue said...

hot pocket breakfast pockets are breathtaking

blue said...

entourage has been better this year

Aitch said...

"please drop a "can you hear me now?" over his corpse"

Not that guy. Maybe they're regional radio spots. But it is a guy talking to a chick and every commercial stars with "ok true story..."

tem said...

ok well i guess not all WaVaians are rednecks, but in general it is true.

even the non-rednecks have a bit of redneck in them.

there are probably 100 people who were born and raised in WaVa that have 0 redneck in them. the other how ever many few hundred thousand people there are, are rednecks to varying degrees.

ToddPacker said...

"entourage has been better this year"

got them on dvr. i need to catch up

tem said...

"Not that guy. Maybe they're regional radio spots. But it is a guy talking to a chick and every commercial stars with "ok true story...""


oh, we don't have those in ohio. kindly drop one on him anyway.

Aitch said...

She was arguing they aren't cuz she has family there.

ToddPacker said...

"She was arguing they aren't cuz she has family there."

so fb is a redneck

Aitch said...

It started when I said that I wasn't gonna buy powerball ticket because the winners are always from some redneck state.

Aitch said...

She said Ohio wasn't a redneck state. I said it borders WV so it was close enough. And on it went.

tem said...

ohio has mega millions not powerball.

Aitch said...

"thanks for the breakdown of the NFL skedule..."

S?

tem said...

""She was arguing they aren't cuz she has family there."

maybe her family is part of the 100 people in WV who aren't rednecks.

tem said...

"It started when I said that I wasn't gonna buy powerball ticket because the winners are always from some redneck state."

just means a non red neck is due.

somebody kill mike moore please

Beth said...

Is Tem part of that 100? Or do you not count since you've left?

Aitch said...

Yea I don't know if you guys saw my comment last night on AD, but I told FB last night that she was replaceable. She was not happy.

tem said...

"somebody kill mike moore please"


THIS ^^ but not just for the quote L Pad wrote.

tem said...

"Is Tem part of that 100? Or do you not count since you've left?"


i am not part of the 100.

i am a born and raised WaVaian.

i have a decent amount of redneck in me.

"I really don't understand why this girl sticks around. I'm not very nice to her."

Some girls like that.

tem said...

"There are 8,662 parents who might better answer this question."

did he just make up 8,662 or is he just doubling the number of dead soldiers?

or did he actually count how many soldiers had living parents and include step-parents in the count if so needed?

did he take into account that some of those parents might be dumb and are unable to better answer the question? some might not even have the ability to answer it at all, did he subtract those people off the count?

i call bullshit on his 8,662 number. fucking liar.
