Spot start time!

Well since keef had some convoluted explanation for why he can't post today (which I totally read as "I'm being mizey") I figured I'd take the initiative and throw something up.

Good lord, was it really just 3 days ago I was saying I believed UGA was 1 of the 25 best teams in the nation regardless of rank? Wow, I haven't been so wrong about anything since I initially pictured EP as some big tall NY'er. I didn't watch most of the game but I know there's a small part of the fan base that is starting to grumble about Richt, which is just ridiculous in my opinion. I bet FSU would love to have him back, Jumbo Fisher or no Jumbo Fisher. But damn they looked AWFUL against Tenn.

On a positive Atlanta football note, the Falcons looked damn good this weekend, although to be honest a big part of it was the 49'ers looking like they were sleep-walking. (Sorry Singletary, when your team is playing like that no amount of screaming and cursing at them will wake them up.) How's that 8-8 bet feeling for you right now Kod?

So apparently 3 of the 4 baseball playoff series were sweeps. Yawn. At least O:FB is still in effect. Can we switch it now to O:FNY? Or at least the Yankees. I don't care who wins the series as long as it's not them, but I don't have much hope for that.

Not many of you may care but the US formally qualified for the 2010 World Cup over the weekend. I read an interesting stat about that this weekend which surprised me. US Soccer gets it's (usually deserved) share of grief but only five other nations have reached six consecutive World Cups -- Brazil, Germany, Italy, South Korea and Spain.

Ok, this posting stuff is tiring. I'm done

Btw, I've decided Keith has the easiest posting job. Mondays you can just rehash what happened on the weekend and you have a post. The rest of the week, not so much.

Just Plain H said...

Nice yob Beth

Steve said...

"five other nations have reached six consecutive World Cups"

Steve said...

so we no longer suck at soccer?

blue said...

fuck umpires.

tem said...

good post freak.

ToddPacker said...

nice work, beth

ToddPacker said...

i was wrong about uga, too... sas they got beat up by the kiffins

ToddPacker said...

spent 4 hours at ikea yesterday... woe

tem said...

"so we no longer suck at soccer?"

i think it is just because they have to take either us, Canada or Mexico.

and we are better than Canada and Mexico.

tem said...

Ikea sucks.

tem said...

whatever you bought there will be broken before Christmas.

ToddPacker said...

"Ikea sucks."

yes

ToddPacker said...

"whatever you bought there will be broken before Christmas."

didn't get much, but still spent $300... not sure how this happened

tem said...

lots of comments deleted on AD/WE??

tem said...

"not sure how this happened"

it is because Ikea sucks.

ToddPacker said...

"lots of comments deleted on AD/WE??"

yeah, who was that?

blue said...

your face sucks

blue said...

first "your face" comment of the week...always a nice start

ToddPacker said...

blue please inform the rockies that everyone wants them to beat the phils. thanks and regards

Beth said...

Oh cool, cause I posted I see I have the power to delete any comments I want. Not that I'd use it but it's kinda fun to know I could.

ToddPacker said...

tough weekend, h... even though i hate the sawk and pats i feel for ya (ns)

tem said...

H probably had sex with 2 different chicks this weekend.

i do not feel that bad for him.

blue said...

"blue please inform the rockies that everyone wants them to beat the phils. thanks and regards"

please tell the umpires to quit cheating for them.

blowing 2 calls on one play is ridiculous

blue said...

in the 9th inning

blue said...

in a tie ballgame

blue said...

fuck you umpires

blue said...

"H probably had sex with 2 different chicks this weekend.

i do not feel that bad for him."

that's the definition of perspective

ToddPacker said...

"in the 9th inning"

that sux

ToddPacker said...

"i do not feel that bad for him."

good point, tem

Just Plain H said...

Blue should have taken the Pats/broncos bet that I offered

Just Plain H said...

Actually only one girl thus weekend. FB1 was out of town and FB3 suddenly has a boyfriend.

blue said...

"Blue should have taken the Pats/broncos bet that I offered"

if it happened in AD or WE, it doesn't exist

Just Plain H said...

"
if it happened in AD or WE, it doesn't exist"

Really? Then how did you know to post Wednesday, since it was established Tuesday AD?

My Colon Is Fine said...

"(which I totally read as "I'm being mizey")"


Not at all.

ns

My Colon Is Fine said...

"Oh cool, cause I posted I see I have the power to delete any comments I want. Not that I'd use it but it's kinda fun to know I could."


I think you have that "power" every day, because you're listed as a contributor

My Colon Is Fine said...

But we aren't going to be getting internets at the new house anytime soon, and since I can't post anything but comments on my work computer, maybe someone else should take over Mondays.

My Colon Is Fine said...

I was hoping that someone that lived by us would have an unsecured wireless signal and then I could get online to post, but everyone's wireless is secured. Woe

My Colon Is Fine said...

And since I can only post comments, I can't get in to my profile page and change my name back. Shitty

blue said...

"Really? Then how did you know to post Wednesday, since it was established Tuesday AD?"

i just posted

blue said...

"since I can't post anything but comments on my work computer, maybe someone else should take over Mondays."

i'll work some long relief for keith until he can stop woeing from home

blue said...

why does your work computer only allow posting comment?

Just Plain H said...

BTW, is it just me, or is it impossible to hate Torii Hunter?

My Colon Is Fine said...

Work computer has a sprint wireless card that logs on to our work network, which blocks site like blogger, facebook, youtube, etc. So I can get to lov.com and into the comments, but if I click on my or anyone else's name or the new post page, it is blockt

My Colon Is Fine said...

If I went to a starbucks or something and used their wireless signal, I could get on all the pages

My Colon Is Fine said...

Nothing is impossible

blue said...

ok, wasn't sure if it was a netbook thing or if it was a blockt thing

blue said...

since you have a wireless netbook, i don't blame you for not shelling out the extra cash to get home interwebs.

Just Plain H said...

I'm cheering for the Angels now.

tem said...

hilarity

blue said...

i can just see that conversation

As.: I'm ordering us internet at home

cmAs.: why? you have your work computer that we can use for free

As.: But I can't post my weekly blog contribution on LoV from it

cmAs.: ::hot sauce::

Just Plain H said...

I'm cheering for the Angels now.

My Colon Is Fine said...

I'm cheering for the playoffs to be over. The only team I didn't hate was the Twins

blue said...

the rockies hate you too

My Colon Is Fine said...

"i can just see that conversation"

I tolt her we needed home internets so we could get on facebook and her reply was "are you serious"

My Colon Is Fine said...

"the rockies hate you too"


That's ok.

My Colon Is Fine said...

Can't believe beth didn't talk about the President's Cup. LIOLI, Beth

blue said...

"I tolt her we needed home internets so we could get on facebook and her reply was "are you serious"


that's about how that conversation would go at my house as well

Just Plain H said...

You boys are so whipped

blue said...

does Kod have today off from work?

Just Plain H said...

Tom brady is still very off with his throws. Moss and Weaker both were wide open a lot and he kept missing them with the throws.

blue said...

i like that nickname...Wes Weaker

Just Plain H said...

"does Kod have today off from work?"

Injustice does not take a day off, so neither does Kod

Beth said...

"Can't believe beth didn't talk about the President's Cup. LIOLI, Beth"

The President's Cup just seems too much like a poor man Ryder's Cup to me. I love watching the Ryder Cup but only watched about 5 minutes of the President's Cup.

And I'm stumped, what's LIOLI?

Just Plain H said...

"Weaker"

Damn blackberry and its autocorrect.

blue said...

broncos defense is stout

tem said...

i'm rooting for the Pirates.

they made the playoffs right?

blue said...

randy moss was invisible

tem said...

your face is stout

tem said...

your face is invisible

blue said...

"i'm rooting for the Pirates.

the ones from Somalia?

Just Plain H said...

Eduardo Perez just said A-Roid has learned how to be a Yankee. WFT?

tem said...

who is eduardo perez?

blue said...

a cab fare that H had

blue said...

or maybe fb3

Just Plain H said...

"who is eduardo perez?"

ESPN analyst

blue said...

i think i like josh mcdaniels now...i was sorta liking him before, now i'm pretty sure


he's a damn good coach

Just Plain H said...

Who would have thought that Papelbon would be the one blowing a save while Lidge nailed one down.

Meiz said...

I'm sick today. Going home at noon.

blue said...

woe

noon EST?

Spaceman Spiff said...

"I'm cheering for the Angels now."

good point, spiff... O:FB is powerful

vladdy is my daddy

ToddPacker said...

"vladdy is my daddy"

funny

Jugdish said...

Bad Day For Northeasterners Dept.: Within three hours Sunday, Jonathan Papelbon surrendered his first postseason runs and Brady lost his first overtime game ever. Sox lose. Pats lose. New York erupts in glee.


IN YOU FACE SP!

payback from you feeling good yesterday

Isiah Thompson said...

Jumbo Fisher

Jimbo

the US formally qualified

as opposed to informally qualifying?

Isiah Thompson said...

I can't believe the San Diego Padres beat the Pats yesterday.

Isiah Thompson said...

Castle* = 20.92

Palmer = 15.64

IN YOU FACE! Deke!

blue said...

"I can't believe the San Diego Padres beat the Pats yesterday."

those uniforms are almost identical to the university of wyoming which is about 2 hours north of here.

not sure who copied who, but i'm glad the broncos changed to orange and blue

blue said...

Idaho 5-1 and with a vote in the AP top 25.


yeah, i said it

ToddPacker said...

"but i'm glad the broncos changed to orange and blue"

orange and blue is the better

blue said...

i don't care that they play in a shitty conference...if they make a bowl game, i'm going.

blue said...

unis wouldn't have been that bad if it wasn't for the socks...

jabar gaffney did a cool twist

blue said...

and welcome back to the party Eddie Royal

i tolt you guys it would come sooner or later

Isiah Thompson said...

like whitlock said, if they didn't run off J Cutty the broncos would be the favorites for the Superbowl right now.

blue said...

or they would have imploded with infighting and they'd be 2-3

blue said...

i'll take 5-0, orton threw for 330 yards yesterday

only one INT this year and that was on the hail mary at the end of the half yesterday.

people can bitch and complain all they want, orton has a higher QB rating than cutler

Isiah Thompson said...

maybe, is the denver D good enough for them to win the SB like the dilfer led ravens?

neckbeard is walking through that door

blue said...

they have a lot better options on offense than Baltimore did...moreno/marshall/royal/scheffler.

but i agree, defense isn't historic like the baltimore D.

Denver is probably 3rd or 4th in the AFC

blue said...

browns with BE this year 0-4

without BE 1-0

didn't take long to win more games without him like i said

Isiah Thompson said...

didn't take long to win more games without him like i said

yep, that offense exploded once the BE anchor was cut free


it's science

blue said...

that was tongue in cheek

how the fuck do you win a game where your QB is 3-17...it's like when the raiders beat KC and jamissus russell was 3-22 or something

Spaceman Spiff said...

going against the jets D in both leagues, gonna win unless they go off

blue said...

not looking good for the skins...the schedule only gets tougher from here on

tem said...

"how the fuck do you win a game where your QB is 3-17"

2-17 i think.

3-17 and you can't win, but 2-17 it is possible.

tem said...

skins haven't played a team with a win yet.

you know when they played them.

SP had something on that.

mind bottling.

blue said...

maybe the bucs should try completing less passes

Just Plain H said...

Pic is hilarity Spiff

Isiah Thompson said...

mind bottling.

it's a little weird but look closer

week 1 : teams are 0-0, duh

week 2 : good chance the team you're facing is 0-1

week 3 : see logic for week 2

week 4 : a little more rare for a team to be 0-3 but not unheard of

week 5 : they faced an 0-3 team coming off their bye week

the problem for the skins is that they've looked putrid against teams with no wins, not the fact that they're facing winless teams.

My Colon Is Fine said...

"You boys are so whipped"


It's called picking your battles, my friend

Just Plain H said...

I agree with Bleu. Jay Cutler is seriously overrated.

My Colon Is Fine said...

"And I'm stumped, what's LIOLI?"

love it or leave it

Isiah Thompson said...

It's called picking your battles, my friend


so true

My Colon Is Fine said...

"I can't believe the San Diego Padres beat the Pats yesterday."

What was with the Cheifs* wearing helmets with the state of Texas on them and their coach wearing a jacket that said Dallas Texas?

Just Plain H said...

"It's called picking your battles, my friend"

I know. Just busting chops colon boy.

My Colon Is Fine said...

Sitting in a Jiffy Lube right now. When did they get so expensive? Used to be able to get a basic earl* change for like $25. Now they start at $37

Isiah Thompson said...

cutler may be overrated but he's better than neckbeard

Just Plain H said...

"What was with the Cheifs* wearing helmets with the state of Texas on them and their coach wearing a jacket that said Dallas Texas?"

Chiefs were originally the Dallas Texans. Same idea as the Jets wearing NY Titans gear.

Isiah Thompson said...

My Colon Is Fine said...

fiscal* talent

Isiah Thompson said...

Denver needed a miracle to beat Cincy, then they played Cleveland and Oakland.

Dallas is an average team and they beat the Pats (who aren't "the pats" this season) - and don't forget Denver's coach was with NE for what 8 years?

Den's next three games:

@ San Diego
@ Balt
Pitt

we'll see how great Neckbeard is in three weeks

12, 27, 23, 17, 20 - not exactly lighting the league on fire.

My Colon Is Fine said...

"Dallas is an average team and they beat the Pats (who aren't "the pats" this season)"


Did you mean Denver?

My Colon Is Fine said...

"12, 27, 23, 17, 20 - not exactly lighting the league on fire."


Orton's nerve* put up great numbers. But he's like 20 games above .500 for his career

My Colon Is Fine said...

I think zeke mentioned it over the weekend, but nice job in the college pick 'em Beth

Isiah Thompson said...

"Dallas is an average team and, they (Denver) beat the Pats (who aren't "the pats" this season)"


*fized

blue said...

they dominated the game against Cincy.

Orton had a dislocated finger and had to wear a glove for the first 4weeks.

Brandon Marshall played 0 snaps in the preseason and was not at any of the minicamp stuff in the offseason.

Moreno was late into camp and then got hurt.

They're just now getting their full offense together.

My Colon Is Fine said...

"*fized"

OIC. RIF

Isiah Thompson said...

zeke also had perfect cfb picks

My Colon Is Fine said...

"they dominated the game against Cincy"

Blew just made a gang of excuses for a 5-0 team

My Colon Is Fine said...

"zeke also had perfect cfb picks"

so?

My Colon Is Fine said...

your face is not perfect. Neither is your mom

blue said...

San Diego looks awful...but will probably beat the broncos this week, but they still have the chiefs twice and the raiders again...so they're at 8 wins by default at this point.

Isiah Thompson said...

I'm just not totally sold yet.

I won't Denny Green 'em until after this 3 game stretch.

1-2 in the next three is acceptable

anything above that then I'll be a full believer

My Colon Is Fine said...

"they dominated the game against Cincy."


Doesn't discount the fact that they won on a fluke play.

blue said...

"Blew just made a gang of excuses for a 5-0 team"

offensively that's their issues.

offense looked good yesterday for the first time all season

My Colon Is Fine said...

But I am SAS that Cincy is 4-1. And I wouldn't be SOS if they finish the season 6-10

Isiah Thompson said...

Indy Coats* have won 14 straight regular season games right?

blue said...

"I'm just not totally sold yet"

i'm not saying they're a legit threat to win a superbowl this year...but they're a playoff team...and probably will end up with as good or better record than the bears which makes the trade of the 1st round pick less awful

tem said...

denver is grate*

Isiah Thompson said...

makes the trade of the 1st round pick less awful


yeah that's huge, don't the bears suck with 1st rounders anyway?

My Colon Is Fine said...

"yeah that's huge, don't the bears suck with 1st rounders anyway?"


What are you talking about? Curtis Enis & Rashan Salaam & Cedric Benson were stellar in Chicago

blue said...

no, the broncos traded their #1 next year to Seattle for an early #2 this year.

which people thought was crazy since Seattle was willing to take the Bears #1 that the broncos got in the trade for Cutler.

So McDaniels was banking on them being better than the Bears...and at the time some people thought he traded away a top 5 pick.

My Colon Is Fine said...

The Bangles* think the Bears are terrible with 1st round picks

blue said...

"What are you talking about? Curtis Enis & Rashan Salaam & Cedric Benson were stellar in Chicago"

not to mention Cade McNown

Isiah Thompson said...

the UM/Iowa game was good...but i don't get not putting forcier back in for the last drive.

it's obvious you've gotta throw the ball, and the brother sucks at throwing

Isiah Thompson said...

it was reported post-game that Tate had a concussion from the last play he was in (apparently Rich Rod didn't know till after the game)


Tate played like shit but yeah, he gave UM a better chance at winning.

5 turnovers for UM kilt them

but they've lost these two road games by 8 points and have been in them at the end. they're getting there. something like 85 freshman and sophs on the roster.
