Just woke up...

Man I'm slacking. I'll post more in a bit.

Quick sports takes

Phillies finally clinch NL East. Took them long enough. They still need to get their closer situation resolved.

Rockies magic number down to one for the wild card. I see a first round exit to follow.

Dodgers are playing terrible right now. I don't think Colorado will catch them, but they're making it interesting.

Indecision by Matt Diaz killed the Braves' charge for the wild card. Beth is sad.

Red Sox continue to back into the playoffs. Someone on sportsradio yesterday said the 2000 yankees lost 16 of their last 18 and still won the world series. The 09 Sox are not the 00 Yankees.

I hope Brett Favre's arm gets ripped off Monday so ye can finally just GO AWAY!

H's half-assed album review

So I decided to do a weekly album review. Why not? And to kick it off, I'm going to do two.

First up is Alice in Chains with their album Black Gives Way to Blue. The band's first studio album in 14 years, and first without the late Layne Staley, falls a little short. New singer William Duvall does a decent job and Jerry Cantrell's songwriting is still solid, but there is nothing significant or noteworthy about any of the tracks. Elton John makes a contribution to the album, playing piano on the title track, a ballad honoring Staley. There is nothing about the piano playing that makes it special, so it comes across as a PR move, attaching a big name to the release. Bottom line, the album is not without good songs and decent music, but it just was too obvious that the band was missing a key element. I give it a 2.5 out of 5

Next up, Lynyrd Skynyrd's newest release God & Guns. I don't understand how a band that has more dead members than live ones can release an album, but whatever. This album starts off well with a rock anthem Still Unbroken. This track has a nice rock feel reminiscent of Three Doors Down. Solid song. Then the album takes a sharp left turn and becomes a country album. Its pretty formulaic from that point on. A bunch of songs, namely the title track and That Ain't My America, reminisce about the way things used to be. There is an attempt at a folk rock song with the track Floyd, and a tribute to the fans with Skynyrd Nation. And finally the last track of the album, Gifted Hands, comes across as a Christian rock ballad. Overall, God & Guns is a solid entry with some decent songs, but it is a little all over the place. It seems as though the band couldn't decide on one direction, so they tried to do a little of everything, with mixed results. 3 out of 5

I'd just quit it after a few months if I got the yob.

El Padrino said...

speaking of porn, i watched this one last night where he had his lady sit at the edge of a bed spread eagle and he would go down a long hallway and run back to the bedroom not stopping and blast her, like a collision

she was a bit loose

Jugdish said...

I'd just quit it after a few months if I got the yob.


i think that is what they are looking for

"and he would go down a long hallway and run back to the bedroom not stopping and blast her, like a collision"

what if he missed? broke dick?

Jugdish said...

what if he missed?

you'd think that he would miss most of the time. a naked sprint with a hard on?

oh, lost my lead but still a game over .500

i can't figure out the titans or texans yet so i will stay away for now, also got two new watchers

Jugdish said...

stay away from the texans for awhile. their D is horrible. I could see them blowing out the Raiders this weekend, or I could see them getting beat...can't tell with that team.

El Padrino said...

yeah i figured that one out

blue even though i think dallas sucks the broncos finally get to play a real football game this weekend (although i guess the cincy win looks better now but we know it was a flukey play)

thoughts?

bgep has been watching daddy

stone cone to do that to him

if they're going re-tread I'd rather have:

1) Gruden
2) Billick
3) Shanny
4) Holmgren

blue said...

"blue even though i think dallas sucks the broncos finally get to play a real football game this weekend (although i guess the cincy win looks better now but we know it was a flukey play)"

easy schedule up until this point. Dallas isn't very good though either, and won't be able to run the ball for shit, so the game will be in Romo's hands...i'll leave you to decide the rest

Jugdish said...

is miser moving today?

blue said...

i don't think the broncos should be underdogs in the game if anything it should be an even line

isiah thompson said...

Bleu how is Knowshon looking for the game this weekend?

blue said...

knowshon will play, split carries with buckhalter, which is never a good situation for fantasy

isiah thompson said...

"Well, I mean, there are many problems in dealing with the Washington Redskins. But the one problem in particular is definitely Jason Campbell, the quarterback," said Harrison. "I don't know what they see in this guy. To me, he's a backup quarterback that's been elevated to a starter. I mean, he's a guy that's unpredictable, he's inconsistent, and he's not a guy that defensive players look at and fear."


this is gonna make Blacktard cry.

When Del Rio learned about Garrard's Friday show, which aired the last three weeks, it was canceled faster than a network television dud.

Del Rio's main issue was the timing of the show.

"Less than 48 hours away from the game, it's not even a question," Del Rio said. "I don't even understand how anybody could ever advise somebody to think about doing something like that. It makes no sense."

"Now, we don't normally write about gambling in this column, which I fully support. But I did sneak a peek at the odds for this week's ballgames, and I did notice the Giants were nine-point favorites here. I think someone in Las Vegas made a mistake. Is that a nine-point spread for the first quarter? If so, it's a credible line."

* Gentry's fuse started to get lit late in practice when Nash got to the rim for unmolested layups twice in a short amount of time. He lamented the weak-side rotations but that was just the start of his defensive disappointment as he tries to turn water into wine. He kept on having to stop the action until the frustration built up some more, prompting him to yell out, "We can't be that good offensively. I think we're good but we can't just get give up 120. We've got to stop somebody. Let's try to hold them to 100 or 95 or 101. How about we just make them make one more pass so I can get on somebody for not getting back. We've got to get better. We don't have many days?"

LOS ANGELES -- Michael Jackson's arms were covered with punctures, his face and neck were scarred and he had tattooed eyebrows and lips, but he wasn't the sickly skeleton of a man portrayed by tabloids, according to his autopsy report obtained by The Associated Press.

In fact, the Los Angeles County coroner's report shows Jackson was a fairly healthy 50-year-old before he died of an overdose.

Following the lead of Suns' general manager Steve Kerr, head coach Alvin Gentry has purchased all the tickets in the upper deck and will make them available for free on a first-come, first-serve basis at the US Airways ticket office.

The Mercury took Game 1 of the WNBA Finals against the Indiana Fever in overtime on Tuesday and will host Game 2 Thursday at 6 p.m.

i appear to be a weak speller don't i

isiah thompson said...

A typical muffuletta consists of one muffuletta loaf, split horizontally. The loaf is then covered with a marinated olive salad, then layers of capicola, salami, mortadella, emmentaler, and provolone. The sandwich is sometimes heated through to soften the provolone.[2] The size of the muffuletta is enough to feed more than one person, and many stores sell quarter or half-muffulettas.


sounds good, like a BMT.
