The show goes on

There were some sports yesterday. Chris Johnson is a fool, he'll pull a hamstring in week 2 and that'll be that.

ESPN's power rankings for the NFL came out...la dee fricken da

College football practices have started, lots of expectations and cheating going on right now.

Is it cheating if you don't get caught? yes /cmblue

LA city council approved a new stadium to attract an NFL team. They can't break ground until they actually have a team though...let the bidding begin. Vegas has the Jaguars as the prohibitive favorites, followed closely by the Chargers and the Vikings. Don't count out the Saints.

All this talk made me think, maybe the NFL is ready for more expansion, just not in shitty cities like Jacksonville. San Antonio, Salt Lake City, Vancouver, Toronto...those are the 4 I could see happening, where else?

Saw this the other day at CostPlus World Market.

"yum"

/meiz & EP

That's about it..go forth and be merry.

hope tem didn't buy any stocks this morning

Why I like the Mets said...

jug sent me that spotted dick pic awhile ago when he was doing one of those "here" and "here"

Blue said...

well then

lots of spotted dick going around these days

Why I like the Mets said...

"San Antonio, Salt Lake City, Vancouver, Toronto...those are the 4 I could see happening, where else?"

Portland?

Beth said...

I would never sleep with a guy if he had a/some spotted dick.

Blue said...

I don't think portland is big enough to support an NFL team

I also don't think SLC is either, but that's a name i've heard thrown around.

Why I like the Mets said...

revenue sharing helps

green bay survives off that
they are a special example though

Why I like the Mets said...

well you have that whole cluster of southern states that love football but really only love SEC football

that knocks out like bama, miss, tenn, ark and to a degree kentucky

not sure an nfl team would work there

Why I like the Mets said...

apologies tenn as a team

Why I like the Mets said...

new england takes up 3 states with it's team so nothing north of them would work

Blue said...

i think that's why jacksonville doesn't work

it's SEC country

Blue said...

Portland could work, supposedly its the 23rd largest metropolitan area

Blue said...

largest one that doesn't have a team (excluding LA)

it's larger than 8 cities that have teams currently

Why I like the Mets said...

LA needs a team, Chargers perfect fit in my opinion any charger game i seen son tv is full of mexicans anyway

whats the difference

Why I like the Mets said...

leave the vikes alone

Why I like the Mets said...

maybe iowa?

Blue said...

doesn't make sense for the chargers to move

makes sense for teams that don't have newer stadiums and can't sell out

i.e. vikings, jaguars, bills, saints

Blue said...

i hope the iowa comment was (s)

Why I like the Mets said...

wayne weaver is a jerk, they'd sell out if they lowered ticket prices

ticket for sd game can be found for $80, ticket for jags games are $150

Keef said...

Maybe give ND a team

Keef said...

The Washington Redskins haven't won the NFC East since 1999. A confident Rex Grossman believes that drought will come to an end this season.

Why I like the Mets said...

ha

Why I like the Mets said...

im actually a little concerned about the gmen going into this year

not feeling it, something is off

Keef said...

xnij oN

Blue said...

i'll say it.

broncos will win eleven games this year

Jugdish said...

including preseason?

Why I like the Mets said...

that sounds plausible

i havent really devled into each team yet, i will but nfl has enjoyed parity over the years anyone can say whatever they want

Jugdish said...

cgjid drove by this on the way home yesterday

Jugdish said...

oops

Blue said...

"including preseason?"

that's for you to decide

The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports that the suspect police were seeking in connection with robbing 20 Burger Kings in five Metro Atlanta counties may have been shot and killed this morning while robbing a Burger King in Buckhead.

Another pic of Shaq and his gf, probably taken about 15 minutes before she ends up in the hospital...

Why I like the Mets said...

dan uggla boggles the mind

Why I like the Mets said...

madison bum for roy halladay just happened in my big $$ fb league

get the fuck out

Blue said...

madison is a good pitcher and roy's arm is probably tired from all the winning

Beth said...

"dan uggla boggles the mind"

Amen to that.

Todd Packer said...

"i think that's why jacksonville doesn't work

it's SEC country"

new Orleans, atl, Tampa & Miami seem to work in sec country

Blue said...

New Orleans doesn't work well

Miami and Tampa aren't in SEC country

and miami has attendance issues as well

Why I like the Mets said...

who dat

Why I like the Mets said...

i didnt know the saints were an issue

Blue said...

saints have attendance problems and a shitty building

benson has wanted out of there ever since Katrina, and the NFL discouraged him for a while

Keef said...

Having Flava Flav's sloppy seconds can't be good for Shaq's look

Keef said...

turd

Why I like the Mets said...

im not so sure flav actually hit that

tem said...

"hope tem didn't buy any stocks this morning"

accidentaly did. set up the trade last night and was sucked into a meeting this AM before i could cancel the trade. so i bought a little high.

Why I like the Mets said...

Gold 1800, good call kod.

Why I like the Mets said...

"accidentaly did. set up the trade last night and was sucked into a meeting this AM before i could cancel the trade. so i bought a little high."

dont worry, whatever you bought will rebound from today

maybe you can buy a little more tomorrow

if europe would stop SUCKING ass we'd make some money

tem said...

"Another pic of Shaq and his gf, probably taken about 15 minutes before she ends up in the hospital..."

does she have hairy pits?

tem said...

"maybe you can buy a little more tomorrow"

nah, i dipped another toe in. that is enough for now.

tem said...

i didn't buy much, i think $620. i lost $20 so far.

Why I like the Mets said...

good read on the UK riots

Blue said...

"Its frustrations and passions were kept at bay by force and draconian legal sanctions, foremost among them capital punishment and transportation to the colonies"

banishment..

i don't know if that's a good read or not...sounds woefully british

and I hate brits and their crappy accents

Keef said...

it's a four game series

i fully expect the rockies to lose the next 2

Why I like the Mets said...

"i don't know if that's a good read or not...sounds woefully british"

same thing applies here
just drop the accents

jesus thank god you dont have the know how or resources to do this

you'd get destroyed





That's about right

Spaceman Spiff said...

is meiz confused

Why I like the Mets said...

"That's about right"

kod said to short it, which means he'd bet it will go down not up

but thanks for playing

Why I like the Mets said...

The 71-year-old who tagged hundreds of telephone poles in Pinellas County, Florida has been arrested. Mr. Charles Ignatius Wesley — or “SLA” — has been vexing the authorities for five fruitful years

TP

Blue said...

if you're looking for a stock to short this wouldn't be a bad choice.

same with linkedin and pandora

Blue said...

groupon's stock will go crazy the first month, then you short it and make a boatload of cash when it comes back down to reality

Mize said...

"kod said to short it, which means he'd bet it will go down not up"


Totally LP'd that part.

Why I like the Mets said...

"if you're looking for a stock to short this wouldn't be a bad choice.

same with linkedin and pandora"

all of these are unprofitable and people knew that going in, yet continue to buy

i'd put a hedge on it with some sort of option strategy but in general i'd be shorting it as well

Javascript that invites everyone, homeboy.

"new england takes up 3 states with it's team so nothing north of them would work"

EP is grate*

You do realize the New England consists of 6 states right?

Keef said...

You learn about New England in year 3 of college

Keef said...

Kevin Millwood pitches for the Rox?

Big Fat Weasel said...

Kod:

Name is Pass the Lysol

Big Fat Weasel said...

"You learn about New England in year 3 of college"

I will concede that there are a lot of Giants fans in CT and RI, but even still...

Keef said...

Fuck Boston

Big Fat Weasel said...

How about those Reds... oh, wait...

Keef said...

Oh it hurts

Big Fat Weasel said...

Alas, I cannot remember your favorite fooyball* team. Bengals?

Big Fat Weasel said...

Last comment was NS

Keef said...

Yep

Big Fat Weasel said...

Palmer gonna unretire?

Big Fat Weasel said...

Who is their QB if he doesn't?

Keef said...

Fuck Palmer. He's sucked since he tore his knee up.

Keef said...

The rookie Dalton is starting the 1st preseason game

kod said...

Gold 1800, good call kod.


I didn't mean sell it right away, I guess "short" is the wrong choice of word. I just mean hold it for a few weeks to a few months or so, depending on how it trends and how brave or willing/able to lose.

Pass the Lysol said...

freaking Twins

Big Fat Weasel said...

Sorry, Kod.

Tyler said...

I seriously don't care which NFL team comes here, just as long as it's not a team that already played here. Fuck the Rams and the Raiders.

Tyler said...

A Hundo. (100th comment - remember when this place averaged 1000 comments a day?)

Tyler said...

And... this place is dead.

Tyler said...

I was hoping for a little LoVad, but apparently, that's not happening. Oh well, I've got The Running Man from Nextflix, so I guess I'll have to get that started.

Tyler said...

Fuck it, might aswell* go on a comment binge...

Tyler said...

Went to get the marriage license this morning.

Tyler said...

The line sucked.

Tyler said...

It was moving awesome until we were one couple away.

Tyler said...

So I made the comment "38 minutes...not bad".

Tyler said...

And then we stood there for 15 straight minutes because everyone was at the same stage in the process.

Tyler said...

So that was fun.

Tyler said...

Went over to my mom's house to pick some stuff up; of course she wasn't there.

Tyler said...

That made me miss the cut off for the breakfast burrito I wanted to get.

Tyler said...

Upside: I got to work from home for the rest of the day.

Tyler said...

And apparently, it was "passive-aggressive day" at work, so I'm glad I missed that.

Tyler said...

FMTyler got in an accident.

Tyler said...

Some 18-year-old dude on the phone hit her from behind (that's what she said) when she was at a full stop.

Tyler said...

And her parents just bought a new car, and I'm not sure they can afford it.

Tyler said...

Seeing as I'm paying for 1/4 of the wedding and my mom is paying for about 1/4 aswell.

Tyler said...

But sure, go ahead, buy a car.

Tyler said...

But hey, as long as an NFL team is coming here, there's nothing to complain about.

Tyler said...

I don't want to piss Kod off, but I'd like to see the Vikes come here. The Chargers can stay in SD.

Tyler said...

I heard the 49ers are a longshot, but are in the mix. That would be weird.

Tyler said...

I also wouldn't mind the Jags.

Big Fat Weasel said...

I'm still here, T

Big Fat Weasel said...

How bad is the damage to FMTyler's car?

Big Fat Weasel said...

So my boss just called me. Knows the problems I am having with the Camaro and also that I can't really get approved for a car loan at the moment without a significant doownpayment. (Basically, stupidly, because of the large pay cut from when I got let go at the collection agency and came here, I haven't done ANYTHING involving credit for the majority of 3 years. Ergo, I now basically have a 0 credit rating. Woohoo.)

So he offered me one of the old taxi vehicles. Said I can pay him a little every week to buy it. It is the smart play, allowing me to save up some cash for a down payment on something better. The problem? It's a fucking minivan....

Think I have to swallow my pride and pull the trigger though. Thoughts? I know you'll have something, Keith.

Big Fat Weasel said...

It's gonna suck going from a sports car to a minivan.

Tyler said...

How bad is the damage to FMTyler's car?

Just saw it. Basically the two screws on his license plate frame made two dents on her back bumper. I told her to get it fixed. Just as long as she doesn't have to pay her deductible, because it wasn't her fault.

Tyler said...

Minivan it up!

Tyler said...

What year is your Camaro?

Mize said...

I'm home from whore shoes.

And maybe drnuk

Todd Packer said...

"Minivan it up!"

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

Tyler said...

You need to call it the Aitch-Van or Aitch-Wagon tho. You know, class it up a bit.

Tyler said...

Maybe a mural involving a centaur and a wizard too.

Tyler said...

Black lights. Sun roof.

Tyler said...

You know, make it your own.

Tyler said...

I hope it's not painted yellow or some gawd-awful taxi color.

Tyler said...

Because that will clash with the centaur/wizard mural.

Mize said...

"But sure, go ahead, buy a car."


LP approves

Mize said...

"Basically the two screws on his license plate frame made two dents on her back bumper. I told her to get it fixed. Just as long as she doesn't have to pay her deductible, because it wasn't her fault."


Don't report it to the insurance co

Todd Packer said...

Tyler, have you heard any of the new jane's stuff yet. Dave Navarro was on stern this AM and they played "irrestable force". thought it was pretty good

Big Fat Weasel said...

"What year is your Camaro?"

'94. I posted yesterday it is gonna cost me 2-3 grand to fix. The headers are cracked, need a whole new exhaust system, plus some other minor repairs.

Big Fat Weasel said...

"I hope it's not painted yellow or some gawd-awful taxi color."

It's actually one of the vans from our student transportation company. It is blue. And our taxis aren't obnoxiously colored. They are maroon.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Can't believe I am considering driving a minivan.

Big Fat Weasel said...

I'll throw a system in that bitch!

Todd Packer said...

what's the make/model of the hvan?

tem said...

I'm here

tem said...

The camaro is basically totalled. H will be driving a minivan.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Ford Windstar

tem said...

Throw a 2 grand system into the 1 grand minivan

Todd Packer said...

h should put a huge NDR decal on the side of the new ride

Big Fat Weasel said...

Oh god. The minivan era has begun.

Todd Packer said...

"Ford Windstar"

yuck, cmtp had a nisson quest & then a chevy something in our minivan years. could wait to get rid of that shit

tem said...

He can bang lots of his friends exes in the minivan after shows

tem said...

Or moms or whatever he is banging these days

tem said...

I bet fence guy drove a minivan

Big Fat Weasel said...

It sucks, but I think it is the smart play.

tem said...

Bengals can go to LA

Big Fat Weasel said...

Keith would be closer to them

tem said...

Yep

tem said...

I'm tired.

Tyler said...

TP, I heard that Jane's song on the radio when they were interviewing them; sounded really good. I was taken by surprise that they have a new album coming out because I hadn't heard anything.

Tyler said...

So I'm excited. Gonna get it when it comes out.

Tyler said...

Bengals can go to LA

hellno.com

Big Fat Weasel said...

Not a fan of Jane's Addiction personally.

Tyler said...

I work with a dude that is from Oho and he's pretty much almost done with the Bengals.

Tyler said...

I am not a fan of your face then.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Have you ever been a fan of my face?

Tyler said...

Mountain Song is hands down, one of the greatest songs ever written.

Tyler said...

"Have you ever been a fan of my face?"

Touche.

Big Fat Weasel said...

They have a few decent songs, but overall I find them whatever.

Big Fat Weasel said...

I hate the song they use for the Entourage theme.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Dave Navarro is a fantastic guitar player, though, so there is that.

Todd Packer said...

"So I'm excited. Gonna get it when it comes out."

downloaded the single earlier... like it more each time I listen

Todd Packer said...

"Mountain Song is hands down, one of the greatest songs ever written."

all of nothing shocking is grate. big fan of Ted just admit it and pigs in zen

Tyler said...

"I hate the song they use for the Entourage theme."

Well, yeah, that whole album was pretty bad. I think there was only one good song on that album.

I would put Nothing's Shocking up against any album you put up. But maybe that's because local radio has played the crap out of them for the last twenty years because they're from here.

Todd Packer said...

"They have a few decent songs, but overall I find them whatever."

h, give nothing shocking a listen. their best stuff imo

Tyler said...

Pigs In Zen was my jam.

Tyler said...

Even "Thank You Boys" when is totally bizarre, is a pretty awesome little ditty.

Todd Packer said...

nothing shocking chills

Tyler said...

Standing In The Shower...Thinking
Summertime Rolls
Idiots Rule
Had a Dad
Oceansize

Too many good songs on that album.

Tyler said...

For some reason, and I think I was drunk when I did this, but I bought Metallica's Reload off of eBay for 99 cents. This pic always cracks me up:

Tyler said...

FMTyler is watching So You Think You Can Dance. The host annoys the shit out of me. Why do the British have zero command of the English language?

Tyler said...

"Here's your Top Four Amerikeer". C'mon asshole.

Big Fat Weasel said...

"Why do the British have zero command of the English language?"

Because they think you won't notice through the accent.

Tyler said...

This dude on So You Think You Can Dance just gave his partner an airplane spin in the middle of their dance. Like Dino Bravo style. WTF?

Todd Packer said...

"summertime rolls"

good stuff

Keef said...

Think I have to swallow my pride and pull the trigger though. Thoughts? I know you'll have something, Keith



Poor bastard

Tyler said...

But they invented the goddamn language. The language was named after their tiny little island.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Thanks. Keith. You never disappoint.

Keef said...

FMTyler is watching So You Think You Can Dance


Cmk loves that shit. I like watching the hot chicks

Big Fat Weasel said...

I will try to listen to those songs, but no promises.

Tyler said...

All of the chicks have really bad short hair.

Keef said...

Thanks. Keith. You never disappoint


I wasn't even being an as.

Big Fat Weasel said...

Anyone else keep getting the "Blogger Unavailable" page?

Keef said...

All of the chicks have really bad short hair.


Yeah the black chick is ok. All the hot chicks got voted off

Todd Packer said...

looks like a newer day

Tyler said...

Just listen to the entire album, you cannot go wrong.

Tyler said...

Katie Holmes is a judge on this thing? What the hell?

Tyler said...

FMTyler just asked me if I was going to see the Glee movie with her. That's a negative Ghostrider.

Keef said...
