The Snow Storm That Wasn't

Well, for Boston at least. While Philly, D.C. and NYC were getting pounded by snow, Boston once again avoided the powerful part of the storm and only got a couple of inches. I'd love to get a job as a weatherman. I mean, they supposedly went to school to get degrees in meteorology and are experts at predicting weather, yet they are wrong more often than not and they get to keep their jobs! Is there any other field or profession where you can be wrong a large percentage of the time without consequence?

In sports related news, apparently I had the calendar wrong or something, because Mardi Gras seems to have started a week early in New Orleans this year. I'm really sorry Freak, but I HATE Bill Polian. "Our offensive line, by our standards, did not have a good game," Polian told NFL.com. "They were outplayed by the Saints' defensive line. Our special teams, in terms of handing the ball -- both in the return game and on the onside kick -- were outplayed by the Saints." Um, how about the back-breaking pick-6 by your Poster Boy QB? No mention of that, huh?

Lindsey Vonn is injured and may not be able to compete in the Olympics. I admittedly know very little about skiing or Vonn, but from what I've heard and read today, she seems to be a bit accident prone. I mean, she once nearly severed her finger opening a champagne bottle, nearly bit off her own tongue during a ski run and now this. Eek.

The Braves reportedly offered a one year deal to Johnny Damon. Thoughts, Beth?

NBA All-Star game is this weekend. My prediction is that the team that scores the most points will win. And no one will care.

Is it baseball season yet?

Today's LOV twitter comment will undoubtedly proclaim this as a sucky post, but oh well.

Typical!

"The Braves reportedly offered a one year deal to Johnny Damon. Thoughts, Beth?"

I really like the idea. They'll most likely need a 1-year fill-in til stud phenom Jason Heyward is fully ready and Damon seems like a good fit to me.

The AJC said besides making Damon an offer they also had Chipper call him to try to convince him to sign. From what I understand Damon has said he's very interested in the Braves too, but the issue is a 1-year vs. 2-year contract.

Beth said...

"Typical!

I almost made a similar joke.

Jugdish said...

I almost made a similar joke.


i was trying for something a little more witty, but I'm too tired right now

Jugdish said...

Why would he mention that? Everyone else already has. If anything, he is saying something no one else is saying. Its so nice to see someone take a stand...like Paul Shirley.

Beth said...

"i was trying for something a little more witty, but I'm too tired right now"

Yeah, I couldn't come up with the right joke so that's why I left it alone.

JFreak said...

nap time.

Jugdish said...

good job tem

Jugdish said...

today is my Friday...suite

Beth said...

"good job tem"

Are you assuming that Tem did the forcing or was one of the ones forced?

Meiz said...

Craig Ferguson is on twitter now. He gets my stamp of approval.

blue said...

lindsay vonn will ski...

they're making it out to be a much bigger deal than it really is

tem said...

i did not force them to do anything.

tem said...

she's gonna ski!

The Rev said...

Boston gets two inches, Philadelphia gets 15.

Which means that Philly women are that much more satisfied.

Meiz said...

FROLF SCHMICKS

Beth said...

"Boston gets two inches, Philadelphia gets 15."

Or it could just mean that things are bigger in Philly.

So at the LOV picnic I guess we'll see that Rev is bigger than H.

wadr Rev.

Meiz said...

"today is my Friday...suite"


Me too

Beth said...

Today is my Thursday.

Bastards.

Jugdish said...

Which means that Philly men are that much more satisfied.

"Thought you were pulling a no-show"

Like the LOV picnic is really going to happen...

El Pad said...

4 day weekend is the better

Meiz said...

"Like the LOV picnic is really going to happen..."


Oh, it will. I have faith.

The Rev said...

Like the LOV picnic is really going to happen...



I'm holding out hope that it will.

The Rev said...

You see, there's a Double Dragon on the LOV Picnic.

It's a sign from Jeebus.

Meiz said...

I might be willing to exhaust my bank accounts to go to the picnic.



I guess that's really not saying much

Meiz said...

A.M. DOUBLE DRAGON!!!

The Rev said...

So the picnic will be in Wisconsin then.

Got it.

Jugdish said...

4 day weekend is the better


^^^^^^^

Beth said...

"Oh, it will. I have faith."

Don't put the LOV picnic on a pedestal mize.

Beth said...

"So the picnic will be in Wisconsin then.
Got it."

So nobody will go, got it.

(That's a shot at WI mize, not at you.)

tem said...

i'd go to the picnic.

Meiz said...

"So the picnic will be in Wisconsin then.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Cedarburg is a perfect place for it.

I'll be there. Maybe mize and i can share a bowl of chips.

Beth said...

"Cedarburg is a perfect place for it."

Now I'm curious, why is that? (ns)

El Pad said...

logistically it makes no sense so there's that

Jugdish said...

i'm thinking nyc



its probably a good idea to have it at the most expensive place

Not unfunny

El Pad said...

"its probably a good idea to have it at the most expensive place"

i know the cheap joints

and it's expensive to live here not visit here

El Pad said...

i'll take care of meiz airfare so he has spending money

El Pad said...

Meiz said...

"i'm thinking nyc"


A weekend in NY would bankrupt me. Not happening.

Beth said...

"i'll take care of meiz airfare so he has spending money"

Hell, with a 30% raise you should be taking care of all of our airfares.

El Pad said...

"Hell, with a 30% raise you should be taking care of all of our airfares."

30% of shit is still shit but i'll buy you a lapdance at the hustler club if youd like

Beth said...

"30% of shit is still shit but i'll buy you a lapdance at the hustler club if youd like"

Hmmmm, receiving a lapdance instead of giving one, that would be weird...

Steve said...

"Hmmmm, receiving a lapdance instead of giving one, that would be weird..."


don't act like it would be your first time.

Beth said...

Well in public it would.

Meiz said...

"Now I'm curious, why is that? (ns)"

We have an awesome park, great bars, inexpensive nearby lodging, etc...

It would be a great atmosphere

El Pad said...

El Pad said...

TP wants to know if your couch is comfy meiz

Sometimes 1 has to be sacrificed for the good of many.

we should do it like the olympic selection committee. we all put a package together for our city of choice and have a few elimination rounds.

Just spent 45 minutes stuck in the snow behind my neighbor's house. I tried to get out, but it wasn't happening.

I now hate living in a rowhome.

And before someone else makes this joke....



yes, I was in a car.

thats why the car was stuck

Steve said...

"Just spent 45 minutes stuck in the snow behind my neighbor's house. I tried to get out, but it wasn't happening."


shiiittt. it snows here i don't even bother. grab a bunch of beer and park the ride till it's gone.

the snow, not the beer. well, both actually

The Rev said...

It's getting to the point where I will be happy to go to work.

Big time cabin fever.

El Pad said...

"thats why the car was stuck"

hilarity

blue said...

were you stuck in the car, or stuck in the snow?

The Rev said...

were you stuck in the car, or stuck in the snow?


Yes

tem said...

did you try to shovel the snow?

tem said...

shovel then drive

Meiz said...

This hour needs to hurry up & pass.

The Rev said...

did you try to shovel the snow?


I shoveled my area of the back alley just fine.

It's the rest of the alley that the neighbors haven't shoveled yet. The wife wanted me to try to get through it, and me like an idiot tried.

I got out of my area and I got through about halfway. I almost had it. Then I couldn't move.

Women!

Meiz said...

Fuck you, Obama

you should walk to wherever you are going.

big talk here yesterday was that the Pac-10 wants to add 2 schools, and that they are targeting CU.

not sure why CU would leave the big-12..but whatever.

Nor bigger when it comes to FB's.

and in the realm of importance to the cab industry h is bigger.

"Cedarburg is a perfect place for it."

As the only other person to have been to Cedarburg here, I can safely say that this is completely erroneous.

You haven't actually been there. You called Grafton Mequon. No credibility.

Great leader, good linebacker, gutsy player but old, broken down, slow and makes too much money

good move

"MLB hitters"

nate davis is great...he went to ball state, what do you expect.

Of course.

I know none of you will care, but here here are Manning and Brady's numbers in the 4th quarter of playoff games in which they were within one score of the other team.

The stats are pretty similar. The records are not.

blue said...

so brady wins 83% of his games, and manning wins 54%

brady > manning


got it.

blue said...

and fuck off if you try and tell me that throwing to troy brown and the other scrubs the patriots have at WR is the same as throwing to harrison and wayne.

blue said...

stats are worthless in football, it's all about wins and losses.

joe montana is the goat...why? because he won 4 superb bowls...and lost zero..and in those 4 games he threw zero interceptions

he's not even in the top 5 passing yards, TDs, completion %...but he's the goat

JFreak said...

I think that just said the Pats had better teams.

With equal QB performances, the difference has to come from somewhere, yes?

Unless it's all just luck.

blue said...

they did have the better teams, that's why they won all those superb bowls.

i don't think anybody debates that
