No /cmblue

I didn't watch any sports or sportscenter last night, but sportscenter was on while I was at the gym running. I happened to look up during the White Sox highlights. I can't hear the TV or read the captions, all I saw was Buehrle throw a pitch that was hit for an RBI single. Next shot was the Indians pitcher throwing a pitch for a strike 3. I didn't need to see much more, sometimes you just know.

I heard Jeremy Maclin thought he had mono, but it just turns out he was really bored.

I was supposed to look up Summit II hotel information for this post. I forgot to do that, but I'll do that before I get off work today and add it to the post.

Booked the condo for our Steamboat ski trip in January yesterday...suite! We have a ten person condo and will be there roughly 8 days.

Tonight I'm going here to see this guy. He plays a lot in Texas, but not very country sounding to me. Excellent song writer. On Saturday night I'm going here to see this guy. On Sunday I'm playing in a softball tournament to benefit a local family...we will probably lose.

Can't freaking wait for football season to start. I have a draft to plan. Draft week is always fun. Three drafts in 4 days for my money leagues starting the Sunday of Labor Day weekend and ending the night before the season starts. I spend $250 a year on fantasy between the three leagues...what do you spend? We should make the LOV league a money league one day. We need 12 teams in there first, and less flex positions.

Go.

"The President turns to Ray, points at Rondo, and says, “Hey, Ray, why don’t you teach this kid how to shoot?” Everyone starts laughing.

KG told me he saw the look on Rondo’s face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President, even though I’m sure Obama didn’t mean any harm. Rondo smiled and went along with all of it, but KG told me he could see it in his eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him.

The next day Rondo shot the ball horribly. He stopped taking shots after that. He’s so sensitive. "

hey, I got talked into joining cmkod's work fantasy football team


haven't done it before except 1 year of failure in a LOV league

just generally speaking, on Y! ffball under the most common rules of scoring
is importance of position generally go:
1) QB
2) WR
3) RB
4) Defense
5)Kicker?

it's a live draft, for some reason people think I know football, I don't...I just know Vikings football (and a decent amount about other NFC North teams). Don't want to finish dead last if possible, next to last might be ok though.

Any imput on that would be greatly appreciated, I need me some backup

El Padrino said...

Fucking Georgetown

Fucking China

Spaceman Spiff said...

"1) QB
2) WR
3) RB"

running backs are tops, QB and WR depend on situation, like if the top QBs are gone you might not pick one for a while, dont pick defense or kicker until your last few picks

El Padrino said...

spiff you see what CT did to Tyler last night?

Keef said...

"hey, I got talked into joining cmkod's work fantasy football team"


Remember when you said you'd join our Y! league? That was fun

El Padrino said...

choo choo!!!!!!

Spaceman Spiff said...

"spiff you see what CT did to Tyler last night?"

havent watched yet, the preview looked awesome though

El Padrino said...

kod i know you said general scoring but check it because some leagues are not PPR and in some leagues QB's score the most points

Keef said...

"running backs are tops, QB and WR depend on situation, like if the top QBs are gone you might not pick one for a while"


If you get a point per reception, WR value shoots up

Spaceman Spiff said...

kod is more confused now. just dont pick any vikings unless you can get AP in the first

Keef said...

Don't drink Lysol while you're drafting

Michael Lardie of Great White said the classic tracks from the 1980s and ’90s are the reason they initially drew fans — and they have to respect that. Of course Great White is going to play “Once Bitten, Twice Shy.” Each night at each venue is a unique experience, and he said they keep that in mind when they play it for the millionth time.

“Some bands might make the mistake of saying ‘Here’s one of our hits and here’s 12 songs off our new record,’” he said. “The fans made you have the career by buying the records. If I went out and bought an artist’s records throughout the years and they didn’t play the biggest song, I would find that somehow offensive.”

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


here's a guy that gets it. As someone who has seen hundreds of 60s, 70s and 80s rock bands/artists in concert a disturbing number (hmmmmphhh hmmmmphhh Neil Young, you're the worst) refuse to play any of the songs from them you may know....even if it's their only 1 hit wonder

i think im gonna take off tomorrow

that's all gold too (ns). I wouldn't even take AP in the first round (ns). He'll be lucky to get over 3.9 YPC this year, mark my words

El Padrino said...

::marking kod's words::

Pass the Lysol said...

awful O-line, arguably worst in all of the NFL, lack of receiving corps (when Berrian is #1, you fucking suck) and people still think he's the same AP as in 2009


he's not, he's not as quick....he's lost enough, combined with the above, I would have been quietly shopping him over the summer

Pass the Lysol said...

but of course, I hope I'm wrong


I do promise it is not a reverse jinx attempt (ns); I really think he's going to have an awful year...unless he gets injured early, which is actually seems kinda likely as well

Pass the Lysol said...

"Don't drink Lysol while you're drafting"

Of course, kod in fall 1998:

I'm predicting 3-13; with o/u on games started by mcnizzie at 5

Keef said...

I'll bet you that they are better than 3-13

Pass the Lysol said...

"I'll bet you that they are better than 3-13"



I'll bet you they finish 4-12 or worse...if you're interested

Keef said...

3-13 is Bengals territory

Keef said...

"I'll bet you they finish 4-12 or worse...if you're interested"


If this is a name/pic bet, I'll take 5-11 or better. If it's a merch bet, I get 4-12

Pass the Lysol said...

yeah, I'd bet on 3-13 too (not for money) but I definitely could see getting to 5-11


anything more than 5 would be a big surprise to me...NFC North isn't weak anymore either. We'll maybe squeak one out against GB or Chi at home (just because no matter how bad any of these 3 teams are, it's very uncommon for one to be swept by the other 2)

probably will get one against Detroit...not sure what else, but I don't see 3 more wins looking at the schedule

Pass the Lysol said...

"If this is a name/pic bet, I'll take 5-11 or better. If it's a merch bet, I get 4-12"


lets do a 4-12 name/pic bet then. For merch, I'd want 5-11 (last I heard, odds were at 6-10). 4-12 is cool for name/pic though

I want 4-11-1

"Using that accident as reason to lynch somebody for playing a song is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard."

I did not say it was reasonable or rational. I love the song and would play it. But people would kill me.

A sound guy at one of our shows played it in between sets and people started booing.
