compeTITion

Sorry this post is so late. I contracted the fence guy to write it for me, but we all know how that goes.

I keep seeing articles about these NBA players who will "consider" playing overseas. Do it...quit talking about it. Wussbags.

For anyone who didn't read the 15 comments on LOVAD last night, Mize and H are having a biggest Loser compeTITion between now and The Summit. They are supposed to weigh themselves today, and then weigh in again at The Summit. I have no idea how that is going to happen, some kind Visionquest type of weigh in scene or something like that. Someone needs to put this on Lordz of Wagers. There is nothing on the line but personal pride...but none of us have much of that anyways, right? It is unknown if Rev will be allowed in the compeTITion.

I'm not really thrilled with the moves the Bears have made so far this off season yet, but I'm holding off more judgement until I see how they pay off. Their O line was horrible during the first half of last season, and somewhat respectable during the second half. They let Kruetz walk over 500k and I question that. They could have given him 1-2 years. He calls all the defensive plays and all the guys really look up to him. The funny thing that is at least half true. I hope I'm pleasently surprised by Roy Williams, but I don't have high hopes for him.

I'm working this weekend, nothing exciting.

Go!

poppycock

merril hoge has been taking shots at tebow.

kind of funny

got into a crazy argument with a radio guy here yesterday.

Blue said...

radio guy made 2 points, you can't judge a guy on 3 games in a rookie season. and he compared his first 3 games stats to Elway's first 3 games as a rookie.


basically hoge said, i'm smarter than you those are stupid points

Jugdish said...

lebron james tuited his support for tebow too.

Blue said...

I don't think Tebow is the next John Elway or Tom Brady, but shit, dude was a rookie...and the truth is they scored more points per game with him at QB than they did with Orton, by almost a full touchdown.

"Fans received free admission Monday night to a practice at the Dolphins' stadium. During the practice, fans booed quarterback Chad Henne​, then chanted "We want Orton!" in reference to the team's recent trade talks with the Broncos.

"It appears like “To Catch a Predator” star Chris Hansen has been preying on more than just WPTV reporter Kristyn Caddell.

According to a new report from the National Enquirer, the married father of two also had a fling with Kathleen Collins, a stripper and aspiring country singer."

tem said...

and stock market crash

El Padrino said...

market drop makes sense, had no clue why it ever went up to 12K

economy is still shit
unemployment is still high and there is still alot of uncertainty in the euro zone

El Padrino said...

my sister is coming in today from SC so i took a few days, back monday

El Padrino said...

i still have like 3 weeks left to take anyway

El Padrino said...

where did al davis go
the fuck

tem said...

UFC TALK:

Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz

Tito thinks he is back because he beat Bader....well Evans is no Bader. Evans will win this fight.

Sadly though, Evans doesn't really put people away. So this fight will see Tito charging and Evans punching him then moving. Maybe Evans will smell blood and go for the KO, but for than likely he'll just ride out a decision victory.

Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama

Not sure how the asian guy can win this....lucky punch? I don't think he is better than Belfort at anything other than maybe judo...Judo isn't going to win. Belfort by TKO

Dennis Hallman (50-13-2) vs. Brian Ebersole (47-14-1)

even those these two dudes have fought a shit ton of fights i have no clue who they are. Ebersole might be related somehow to the CBS sports guy. Dick Ebersol. Close enough. I'll take Hallman because he isn't quasi-related to some old guy who may or may not be dead now.

Jorge Rivera vs. Constantinos Philippou

I'll go with the guy who has the name i can't pronounce.

Rory MacDonald vs. Mike Pyle

young up and coming guy versus gate keeper. usually this gatekeeper (pyle) wins. maybe he'll win here and get a shot at someone good.

i can't bring myself to pick a dude named rory to win a fight.

Jugdish said...

that Westboro Baptist "Church", the one that pretests military funerals, will be outside our base this Saturday during drill weekend protesting the military.

They will be out there from 12-1. At 11 there will be a large group of USA! USA! USA! loving bikers to block the road where they can protest.

This will be the 3rd time it's gone into the dealership since February

^^^^^^^^^^



Took a lot of efforting, but I'm glad I convinced pops to move their entire retirement savings out of the market and into CDs, Bonds and money market savings. He just did that this past Spring; dad's retired and mom retires March 2012, hooray for good timing.

I'm sticking with my Stock market will start falling again to around 7-8K tops....although I'm now fearing 5-6K or even lower

kod said...

*my prediction that the stock market

kod said...

of course, I'm incredibly pessimistic when it comes to our economy, in fact, I'm downright frightened

Blue said...

7-8k would be catastrophic

obama would be lynched.

Jugdish said...

economy always drops when Lp is off...its science

tem said...

7-8K would be horrible.

people are pissing their pants today and it is only down 300 points.

another 4 thousand points and people would be jumping out of buildings.

Whiskey Tango said...

"another 4 thousand points and people would be jumping out of buildings."


like when planes hit them?

Blue said...

hey tebow, i got yer back. Maybe you can come play for the heat?

/lebron

Whiskey Tango said...

hopefully tow truck guy is faster than fence guy

tem said...

hopefully he is also better at his job.

Whiskey Tango said...

hopefully all he needs to do is jump it. but then I have to take it to the dealership

Whiskey Tango said...

I don't think I've ever had a car batter last longer than 2 years here

Spaceman Spiff said...

choose under 21

Jugdish said...

hopefully tow truck guy is faster than fence guy



it would be funny if its the same guy.


"Ohh hey keef!"

Blue said...

"choose under 21"

hilarity

tem said...

don't you own jumper cables?

or do you own them and just don't have anyone nearby with a car that can jump yours?

Whiskey Tango said...

tow truck guy was supposed to be here at 12:18. He got here at 12:03. Win

Whiskey Tango said...

"what car did keith get"

Whiskey Tango said...

"don't you own jumper cables?"

Of course I do. They're in my garage. ns


"or do you own them and just don't have anyone nearby with a car that can jump yours?"

I'm at Walmart. I try not to talk to people here

Whiskey Tango said...

Man, you shop at Walmart a lot

/LP

Blue said...

oh yes, i remember the tiguan discussion

tem said...

oh. i figured you were at home.

ass me

tem said...

although i do keep my cables actually in my car.

but i probably wouldn't ask anyone at walmart for help either.

tem said...

i'd phone a friend

Whiskey Tango said...

"although i do keep my cables actually in my car."

Yeah I don't know why I don't have them in here

Whiskey Tango said...

"i'd phone a friend"

VW has free ro-add side service

We should test for HDH

"i'm home"

Very nice.

kod said...

"The likely loss of unemployment benefits for 3.71 million Americans in a few months will only add to an economy edging ever closer to recession, according to analysis that puts the chances of another downturn at better than 1 in 3."


ever closer to recession? Geez, feels like we've been in a recession now for almost 4 years now

kod said...

I suppose they're going by the technical GOP growth definition


but whatever this is, jobless recovery or whatever, sucks to imagine things getting much worse

kod said...

GDP I suppose; although GOP growth seems to be a leading indicator of recessions

tem said...

"ufc gonna get rid of strikeforce completely once the showtime deal is done"

^^^

it makes no sense for UFC to own it. it'd be like the NBA owning a league for women players.

Big Fat Weasel said...

No junk food today, no cigarettes, did 20 minutes on the bike and some chest, back, & bicep exercises. Woot!

Big Fat Weasel said...

Big Fat Weasel said...

Mize said...

Shit. I weigh less than I thought. 222.

Mize said...

I kicked off the compeTITion by having McDonalds for lunch.

Big Fat Weasel said...

You know it is a compeTITion to LOSE weight right?

Whiskey Tango said...

Annette Charles -- who played Cha Cha in the 1978 movie "Grease" -- died last night in her Los Angeles home ... her rep tells TMZ.


Poor tem

Mize said...

"You know it is a compeTITion to LOSE weight right?"

Apology accepted

Big Fat Weasel said...

Whiskey Tango said...

No, seriously. You can stop apologizing. I accept it

Big Fat Weasel said...

Don't you have a fence to repair?

Don't you have wait around for a guy to repair your fence?

Whiskey Tango said...

Fence issue has been escalated to the district office here

Mize said...

Nice. You should get the work done for free.

NS

Whiskey Tango said...

We'll see. I really don't know what to expect

Mize said...

You should really raise a stink about it. Maybe check out if there's info on The Consumerist about EECBing Home Depot.

Tyler said...

We need at least one more guy for the FFB league. I guess this is not the best time to post that info. I'll try and post it again tomorrow morning if I remember.

Mize said...

Not the best timing

Mize said...

Anybody know the secret to getting a post to publish at the time you actually set?

Mize said...

OIC now. Gotta hit the publish button.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Where's Pewaukee?

Mize said...

Maybe you should stop poaching scheduled posts

Big Fat Weasel said...

Maybe you should stop being so sensitive.

Mize said...

I don't particularly care about it, but what's the point of having a post ready for tomorrow if you're going to read it in advance?
