Ash Wednesday

Blue had to go get ashed this morning, thus the late post.

I won't ask what people are giving up for lent, because this isn't a religious blog.

George Karl got a contract extension. Little known fact, he hasn't had a losing season for the 18 straight seasons (working on 19 this year). That's somewhat impressive I think. Love him or hate him, he'll probably won't end up in the HoF if he doesn't win a championship.

Jim Tressel's pants are on fire. Maybe it's his gold pants, I don't know.

You know who's pants aren't on fire, the Miami Heat. O:FMH is going very awesome. Now there is infighting because Bosh isn't getting enough touches. What did you expect douche?
I'm sure in the team meetings Spoelstra is thinking, "if we could only figure out a way to get Bosh more involved"

Butler is back in the tourney...here's to a second round exit for them.

Mize gave greinke too hard of an elbow in their pickup game of "basketball". That's all fine, but doesn't explain why they were playing in the nude.

Broncos show lots of interest in Cam Newton...or really just trying to make people think that so they'll trade up and take the #2 pick if they really like CAM. Unfortunately, teams aren't dumb...except the Raiders, and they won't trade that far up...then again, maybe the Bills are that dumb.

Baseball is only a few weeks away...we need one more team in the Y! league...c'mon interested parties, you know you want to play.

This post is up hours before you have lately been posting.

tem said...

tem gets ashed at 7pm EST or thereabouts.

tem said...

i'm giving up watching Family Guy for lent.



that's fuckin' easy /as.

"splitting evenly is what grownups do"


disagree; it's what broke HS and college kids do. The adult thing to do is have one person cover the entire bill, maybe have someone else get the tip. Then, the next time it's someone else's turn.

fuck that

maybe if it is 2 or 3 people. but not a large group.

no fucking way am i paying for 4 or more other people unless it is fast food. probably not even then.

Blue said...

the only time that happens is when my pops is footing the bill

kill all the gophers said...

"fuck that"

"no fucking way am i paying for 4 or more other people unless it is fast food. probably not even then."




fair enough; not my style, but it does indeed take different strokes to move the world

i want to go to dinner with kod

"i want to go to dinner with kod"


shit yeah; I'd pick up the tab....I just ask that you hire me so you can turn around and fire me

El Padrino said...

kod is talking about credit card roulette

kill all the gophers said...

I do agree that there are limits to this


I'm thinking 6 or less (maybe even less if everyone is drinking heavy or the place is uber fancy/expensive)


If the bill is under $200 though, it's not worth haggling over who owes what. Plus, you inevitably have one or more lousy tippers in the group...so there's the whole subsidizing the tip part too.

kill all the gophers said...

bad tippers are one of my biggest pet peeves

shit is embarrassing; these people make their living off tips. As long as service was adequate or better, leaving anything less than 15% is disgraceful

Blue said...

"shit is embarrassing; these people make their living off tips. As long as service was adequate or better, leaving anything less than 15% is disgraceful"


i agree, but the server has to earn it, they don't just deserve it because they're there

tem said...

tipping is COL right?


tem tips 20% usually.

15% if the server was just OK.

i'll go lower if they fuck up a lot.

iamunstoppable said...

i love you all equally. just some more equally than others.

El Padrino said...

tipping is Colov to the 8th power

and everyone on here stiffs the tip. don't lie, kids.

definitely COL, i feel like i just hijacked the Delorean back to 2000&seezy.

LP, whats your boy Tiki doin? i think someone tied his giant tie knots too tight.

it must be 2008

tiki needs scrilla

plus wasn't getting into the HOF against strong competition with his stats. needs more yards and shit.

iamunstoppable said...

and now, i must disappear like the great smoke monster. look to the eastern skies for my return. i'll be on the red horse.

tem said...

red zorse you mean

iamunstoppable said...

he's still bitter about saying TC was a bad coach, then them winning it all the very next year. the team was sandbagging just to get rid of him. ultimate hateism, gotta respect that.

El Padrino said...

like i said, tiki left unfulfilled especially after the Giants won it all without him

El Padrino said...

funny he says he's in shape, when he gets hit by a roided linebacker he might change his mind

El Padrino said...

tiki is gonna suck...he'll quit midway through training camp

El Padrino said...

"FBI agents discovered that one of the passengers, Thomas G. Doty, a married man with a five-year-old daughter, had purchased a life insurance policy from Mutual of Omaha for $150,000, the maximum available; his death would also bring in another $150,000 in additional insurance (some purchased at the airport) and death benefits. Doty had recently been arrested for armed robbery and was to soon face a preliminary hearing in the matter. Investigators determined that Doty had purchased six sticks of dynamite for .29 cents each, shortly before the crash, and were able to deduce that a bomb had been placed in the used towel bin of the right rear lavatory."


i think it's a good thing you cant take dynamite on the planes these days

tem said...

when the hell did dynamite cost 29 cents per stick?

i need to buy me some dynamite.

Blue said...

where the hell do you just go buy dynamite?

tem said...

that was also a question i had.

Blue said...

just walking through Home Depot is there like a dynamite bin..."on sale today .29 a piece"

tem said...

i also like the fact that the dude was arrested for armed robbery, but somehow got on a plane.

when the fuck was this? 1975?

so what if my house is worth less than I owe if i am still paying the mortgage? given enough time i will eventually owe less than it is worth.

of course the pessimist in me says, why would you keep paying for a house when you don't have any equity in it "nothing to lose" basically

Spaceman Spiff said...

hockey dude almost got decapitated

last night

Blue said...

i saw a deal on the news where a lady had her house foreclosed on, and when it sold at auction is sold for like 50K more than owed on the bank note.

So she quit paying her payments, and ended up with a 50K check.

Blue said...

I guess that's starting to happen quite a bit according to the county records, but they send notification to the last known address, which is usually the house you had foreclosed on.

tem said...

"of course the pessimist in me says, why would you keep paying for a house when you don't have any equity in it "nothing to lose" basically"

because that's where you live.

and eventually the value of that home will rise. or it'll be tent city.

tem said...

"So she quit paying her payments, and ended up with a 50K check."


why did she get the money?

after forclosure shouldn't the bank get the money?

Blue said...

"after forclosure shouldn't the bank get the money?"

guess not, legally the bank only has the right to the note they are owed.

El Padrino said...

"of course the pessimist in me says, why would you keep paying for a house when you don't have any equity in it "nothing to lose" basically"


my view

tem said...

interesting. i'd figure after forclosure they could keep the extra.

i guess if you're ok having your credit screwed and renting the rest of your life, it wouldn't be an awful move if you can't afford the house anymore.

rest of your life is a lil much

Rautins made his on-court NBA debut on November 9, 2010 in a game vs. the Milwaukee Bucks. He played 8 minutes, scoring 3 points and adding 1 assist during a 107-80 loss.

"The Simpsons is perhaps television's greatest aberration -- it's likely to carry on until the sun explodes, and not once have they tried to cash in on a spin-off series. What you may not know is that Matt Groening has bounced around a lot of spin-off pipe dreams over the years, including a live-action Troy McClure movie, the adventures of young Homer, and a full length feature film parody of Fantasia. None saw the light of day, but the one that came closest to actually appearing on your TV screen was a sitcom starring Krusty the Clown.

Oh, and here's the twist: It would have been live-action."

when that was scrapped, Futurama was born


-yeah, futurama isn't the greatest, but way better than a live action Krusty spinoff would have been

more or less.

but they only do the bookkeeping for our own companies.

"all 16/17 seeds, winner gets the 1s"

why do lunardi's brackets on the WWL always have something like "12Colorado / 12Georgia" and "11Michigan St / 11Virginia Tech"?

it looks like he is treating those seeds as play in games just like he does a couple 16s..."16BETHUNE-COOKMAN / 16MCNEESE ST" "16ARKANSAS-LITTLE ROCK / 16TEXAS SOUTHERN"

This is not correct.

Two 16 seed play-in games. The other two play-in games are between the last 4 at large teams. It will likely be for an 11 or 12 seed.
