Thursday Ramblings...

I thought about putting up 4 posts to give tem back his 5s and 0s, but don't want to start that war. It could turn out to be the new Sparta, and I don't want to be responsible for that.

Brett Favre is causing a "schism" in the Vikings locker room. According to Adam Schefter (how long has he worked for ESPN ), half of the vikings support Tavaris Jackson and half think Sage rosenfels gives them the best shot to win. Very little support for Brett. This is hilarity. At least last year the Jets' players waited until AFTER the season to voice their displeasure with Favre. Talk about sabotaging a season before it begins. Picking up Favre was a solid move.

The Philly NAACP and some clergy association plan to march around The Linc tonight in support of Michael Vick. So they are basically protesting a protest. Right. Good luck with that. The Eagles have actually asked them not to do this to avoid an "ugly scene." God I love sports. Nothing else produces these types of storylines.

Speaking of the NAACP, isn't it about time they change their name? The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The term colored people seems very outdated. I'm pretty sure if I called a black guy colored, I'd get thrown a beating. I'm just sayin'

So the 9th circuit court of appeals found that the gubment had no right to seize the list of 104 names from the 2003 tests, only 10 or so that were the subject of their investigation. Thanks for that, but it seems like too little, too late. The cat is out of the bag. Nothing will change the fact that hundreds of people have now seen this list and the names will come out. Now that the case is (hopefully) resolved, unless the government appeals for the 4th time, baseball should just release the list, take their lumps, and finally move on.

Lastly, on a serious note, today and tomorrow is the Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon. For those of you unfamiliar with this charity, it supports the Dana Farber Cancer Institute here in Boston. They do amazing things there in leading the charge to find treatments and eventually a cure for cancer, especially in children. If you find some time today, listen online to WEEI radio and some of the stories of both the triumphs and tragedies of this cause. And I'd you can muster any funds, I can't think of a better cause to donate to. While the DFCI is in Boston, people come from all over the world to be treated. So please do what you can. www.jimmyfundradiotelethon.org

Steve said...

so what did ya get for your bday, beth?

Aitch said...

Thanks folks.

Aitch said...

Brad Penny released. Shocking.

Beth said...

"so what did ya get for your bday, beth?"

I could go with the easy answer and just say "laid" :-) but you were probably talking about material stuff.

I got jewelry of course, a nice pendant w/ some diamonds in it set in white gold.

All you guys need to listen up, with most women you can never go wrong with a nice (expensive) piece of jewelry. (Getting her lingerie is a cop-out, it's like buying yourself a gift.)

Aitch said...

"with most women you can never go wrong with a nice (expensive) piece of jewelry."

I thought this was common knowledge.

Steve said...

"All you guys need to listen up, with most women you can never go wrong with a nice (expensive)"

you mean a smack on the ass and brand new shiny Iron doesn't cut it?

Beth said...

"you mean a smack on the ass and brand new shiny Iron doesn't cut it?"

Hey for some guys that might be an improvement as it means they actually remembered her b-day. But let's just say I'd never be with a guy like that. :-)

Beth said...

"I thought this was common knowledge."

You'd be amazed Aitch, you'd be amazed. The stories I've heard from my friends are incredible. (A vacuum for Christmas, really????)

Jugdish said...

All you guys need to listen up, the sky is blue

Jugdish said...

(A vacuum for Christmas, really????)


that is a gift you get when you're married. that, or a treadmill...

tem said...

"I thought about putting up 4 posts to give tem back his 5s and 0s"

i had a solid run at the 5s and 0s. Now someone else can have a go.

Steve said...

or a lifetime supply of Slim Fast

tem said...

i bought exfemtem one of those workout balls and a yoga mat for Xmas once.

that's not all she got, but she got those things.

of course she axed for them.

tem said...

OK Beth, fire up some advice for a gift for a chick you've been dating for about 45 days.

Jugdish said...

of course she axed for them.


excmjug asked for a roomba for Christmas one year, so she got that as well.

Aitch said...

hey guys if you want to donate to the Jimmy Fund you can text JIMMY to 20222. That will donate $5 and be automatically charged to your cell bill. They let you do it up to 5 times for a total of $25. All of u guys can afford at least five bucks...well except maybe Meiz. So please do this. I donated $5 this way and called and pledged $50 more and I'm BROKE.

PSA over. I won't mention it again.

Jugdish said...

OK Beth, fire up some advice for a gift for a chick you've been dating for about 45 days.


it sucks when you just start dating a chick and you stumble on her birthday right away

Beth said...

"OK Beth, fire up some advice for a gift for a chick you've been dating for about 45 days."

Well based on the fact that you admitted recently you haven't been laid in months, and now it comes out you've been dating a chick for 45 days (I'm assuming this is about you), I'd suggest a roofie.

(s and wadr all in one comment)

Jugdish said...

i usually donate to the human fund

Jugdish said...

I'd suggest a roofie.


hilarity

Beth said...

My serious answer is to try to get her something related to an interest she has or something she's mentioned always wanting or wanting to do. Show her you're actually listening when she's talking.

Aitch said...

Tem, you're dating someone?

Jugdish said...

Show her you're actually listening when she's talking.


what if he hasn't listened to this point?

Aitch said...

What's the human fund?

ns

Jugdish said...

human fund

Steve said...

why are you getting her a present after only 45 days?

Steve said...

"I'd suggest a roofie."

it's the gift that keeps on giving.

tem said...

" now it comes out you've been dating a chick for 45 days"

i didn't say her birthday was today. put the mat away. i just like to plan ahead.

tem said...

"why are you getting her a present after only 45 days?"

because it would be her birthday.

tem said...

"Show her you're actually listening when she's talking."

umm, where is the time masheen??

tem said...

"Tem, you're dating someone?"

kind of, i guess

Jugdish said...

umm, where is the time masheen??


mEEz uses it to go back to the 60s everyday after work

Jugdish said...

make her a mixed tape

Beth said...

"umm, where is the time masheen??"

Well I guess we know why you haven't been laid yet then.

wadr, again

tem said...

fyi h, i donated $5.

tem said...

you have to reply by saying yes too apparently.

this is more work than i signed up for.

tem said...

"make her a mixed tape"

another one?

Aitch said...

Ty tem. For real.

Jugdish said...

another one?


now I see how you made it to 45 days

tem said...

"Well I guess we know why you haven't been laid yet then."

AJA thanks for the gift advice. confirmed what i was going to do anyway.

Jugdish said...

nice work tp

tem said...

"now I see how you made it to 45 days"

not there yet. still plenty of time for me to fuck up.

tem said...

I get confused that Edward Kennedy and Ted Kennedy are the same person.

Aitch said...

Papi with a walkoff last night. He must have gotten a fresh shipment of vitamins and supplements.

tem said...

and ISAS that nobody has dropped a "holder-outer" on me.

Aitch said...

That's right, I said it.

Beth said...

"and ISAS that nobody has dropped a "holder-outer" on me"

I thought about it but then figured you might have mentioned it before and I just missed it. I didn't want to get compared to EP.

Aitch said...

" ISAS that nobody has dropped a "holder-outer" on me."

Goes w/o saying

tem said...

touche

PAC-10 poon said...

how bout for her birthday you give her some angry tiger

blue said...

give her those diamond earrings you bought from exfemtem 2 years ago when there was that super cheap link that somebody posted

blue said...

anybody seen the PSA for texting and driving from England?

Aitch said...

Expensive jewelry too early can scare a girl off.

blue said...

it wasn't expensive..

didn't you read...rif.


the earrings were super cheap

Aitch said...

"anybody seen the PSA for texting and driving from England?"

Nope. LOVing while driving probably isn't safe either.

tem said...

"give her those diamond earrings you bought from exfemtem 2 years ago when there was that super cheap link that somebody posted"

i think i ended up giving them to exfemtem last xmas when we were back together again.

blue said...

texting PSA

it's long.

but i see a huge opportunity for people to make parodies of this video

Aitch said...

"RIF"

Blue don't make me drive to Denver and kick you

blue said...

that would be a long drive just to try and kick me

tem said...

yeah and the fare would be huge.

tem said...

and i doubt you'd get a tip.

Aitch said...

It's slow and I could use a road trip

Beth said...

I'd tip him, it would be worth it just to hear about aitch running around after blue trying to kick him.

blue said...

i'm pretty quick

tem said...

i bet he'd give you more than a tip.

blue said...

just the tip?


that's a fun game

El Padrino said...

aitch charity starts at home

Aitch said...

"i'm pretty quick"

I'm deceptively fast for a far guy.

Of course if you run more than 10 yards I might die.

Meiz said...

"mize, get on the internets and tell me if these clubs are good"


They are. You couldn't play 'em though.

El Padrino said...

tem beth gave the best advice, whatever she's mentioned that she likes i'd go with something like that

as always in a young relationship a nice set of flowers (not roses) but flowers work

Aitch said...

I could probably catch EP. One of my strides is probably equal to like 7 of his midget strides.

El Padrino said...

But he'd leave bigger footprints, being L shaped and all.

Jim Valvano's dead. He'll get none of my money.

Beth said...

EP Two Times.

Gonna go get the papers, get the papers.

Meiz said...

"I will never ever ever ever have a serious girlfriend.

That's the plan

Meiz said...

lovad is an embarrassment. The entire internet shakes its head at lovad.

Aitch said...

EP aja if you listened to 20 minutes of this telethon, you would want to donate. With 70k in debt, what's another $5?

I know I said I wouldn't mention it again, but he baited mem

Jugdish said...

keef can't carry it alone

El Padrino said...

meiz, do you like vaginal intercourse?

Meiz said...

"meiz, do you like vaginal intercourse?"


yep

El Padrino said...

"EP aja if you listened to 20 minutes of this telethon, you would want to donate. With 70k in debt, what's another $5?"

I'd rather give Meiz the $5, I just don't trust charities

Jugdish said...

I'd rather give Meiz the $5, I just don't trust charities


do you trust visa?

Aitch said...

"Jim Valvano's dead. He'll get none of my money"

Nothing to do with Jimmy V. dumbass.

El Padrino said...

and that 70K was lowered to 54K

in you face crediotrs

El Padrino said...

do you trust visa?

no

Jugdish said...

and that 70K was lowered to 54K


good deal, how did you manage that?

El Padrino said...

and i've donated to charities before, ones that have affected my life, so not knocking your plight aitch, just sayin until i'm debt free no one gets any charity

Aitch said...

"I'd rather give Meiz the $5, I just don't trust charities"

Rich people be cheap, you.

El Padrino said...

"good deal, how did you manage that?"

saved up a small bundle than settled a debt for half of what it was

Beth said...

"and that 70K was lowered to 54K"

That extra kidney was just sitting there doing nothing anyway.

blue said...

jimmy foxx?

Aitch said...

Fair enough, EP. ns

I'm a little fired up about this because my grandfather is on his last days due to cancer.

Jugdish said...

good work!

tem said...

jimmy dean

Meiz said...

Only took one comment to get in H's craw. Excellent.

blue said...

"I'm a little fired up about this because my grandfather is on his last days due to cancer."

people been giving to charities trying to cure cancer for many years and shit hasn't been cured.

time to find a new cause

Meiz said...

I don't think I have ever given any amount of money to any charity. And I don't ever plan on it, either.

Aitch said...

"people been giving to charities trying to cure cancer for many years and shit hasn't been cured.

time to find a new cause"

FUCK OFF. That's not even remotely funny.

El Padrino said...

"I'm a little fired up about this because my grandfather is on his last days due to cancer."

sorry to hear that, my grandmother had a stroke has never really recovered and now is in the hospital with pneumonia and i've lost several family members to the cancer

shit never makes any sense, like what blue said, same thing with AIDS, they have like 80MM in reasearch money yet never find a cure or close to a cure

seems strange to me

tem said...

wait, this isn't a pro cancer thing?

i thought "it supports the Dana Farber Cancer Institute here in Boston" meant that it supported giving people in Boston cancer.

if it is trying to cure cancer they should say that in their name.

tem said...

and i can joke about it because i donated money.

El Padrino said...

i heard some shit that we all have cancer in our body, it's whether or not the cancer turns mailgnant

no idea if that's true

tem said...

that's the catholic way.

do something bad, pay money.

El Padrino said...

all i know is my grandfather was healthy one day and dead three months later

and he never smoked or drank (outside of table wine and an occasional beers)

El Padrino said...

can we talk about sports or sex now?

blue said...

"FUCK OFF. That's not even remotely funny."

but it's 100% true

El Padrino said...

giant breasts to lighten th mood sorta nsfw

blue said...

"i thought "it supports the Dana Farber Cancer Institute here in Boston" meant that it supported giving people in Boston cancer."


ah, so they support O:FB...i may donate now

Jugdish said...

but it's 100% true


doesn't mean they should give up...

Meiz said...

So I'm gonna get my system cleared up, and request a raise in about 2 weeks, and then quit if I don't get it.

blue said...

"doesn't mean they should give up..."

maybe you should find another job...request a raise, then quit if you don't get it, and take the other job.

tem said...

"So I'm gonna get my system cleared up"

what system?

Deluxe said...

We will never here about a cure because the money isn't in the cure, it's in the medicine. Tell me there is no cure for aids/HIV when Magic Johnson is 70 years old.

Meiz said...

"what system?"


Endocrine

Jugdish said...

Tell me there is no cure for aids/HIV when Magic Johnson is 70 years old.


good point mEEz

Deluxe said...

Cancer will never be "cured."

Deluxe said...

got MOJO with the #2 pick last night.

Meiz said...

"maybe you should find another job...request a raise, then quit if you don't get it, and take the other job."


That would be ideal, wouldn't it?

Deluxe said...

Meiz, guy from the draft last night went to school with Tiff and said she works at some insurance place with him in GB. I thought she was running The Bridge still, any word on this?

blue said...

i'm a pragmatist

tem said...

what are you going to do to fix your endocrine system?

blue said...

look it's the deluxe and meiz talk about shit nobody cares about hour

Jugdish said...

I thought she was running The Bridge still, any word on this?


doubtful...tiff was over her head in running the bridge in the first place. it would have only ended badly

Deluxe said...

"look it's the deluxe and meiz talk about shit nobody cares about hour"

I could give a fuck if you care about it.

Jugdish said...

I could give a fuck if you care about it.


but will you?

Deluxe said...

"doubtful...tiff was over her head in running the bridge in the first place. it would have only ended badly"

actually from what I saw and heard, they were doing the best they have in a long time.

Deluxe said...

I'm not into pity fucks.

meiz did always want to plow tiff

right, but the bridge was 3 towns over, so that was never going to happen

now that he has the aveo, maybe

Meiz said...

"I thought she was running The Bridge still, any word on this?"


They sold that dump, or got a good offer to sell. It was a serious shithole when she ran it. Allegedly, its pretty nice now.

Beth said...

Although tiff is no bike.

Jugdish said...

It was a serious shithole when she ran it. Allegedly, its pretty nice now.

Not smoke drugs.

I have no idea if its even the endocrine system.

Meiz said...

"meiz did always want to plow tiff"

Who didn't?

Beth said...

Meiz and deluxe, if you want to carry on a conversation without any of us giving you grief or butting in, I'd suggest going here.

Deluxe said...

"They sold that dump, or got a good offer to sell. It was a serious shithole when she ran it. Allegedly, its pretty nice now."

She was still running it after they made all the changes inside, did they do that first before they sold it?

Deluxe said...

"meiz did always want to plow tiff"

Who didn't?



AMEN!

Jugdish said...

She was still running it after they made all the changes inside, did they do that first before they sold it?


no, she left...much like Shelly Long on cheers

Nobody was complaining, darling.

Deluxe said...

"Meiz and deluxe, if you want to carry on a conversation without any of us giving you grief or butting in..."

I don't mind, I just like to give Blue a hard time.

I'm not even sure if she's married. But I'm 100% sure she's not married to Kod.

all that's missing is the part where deluxe and meiz are playing tummy sticks and the story will be complete

Meiz said...

I like when Blue tells stories

I wish the Cheers set was a real bar, not just a concept. The real bar is pretty cool though.

Jugdish said...
