Lin's confidence is off-putting

Dana White thinks Mayweather is racist for what he said about Lin. He should know you can't be racist if you're black.

I do like that fact that the Knicks are now Lin's team. This won't end well with Melo. He needs the attention, but now every Knicks headline has Lin's name in it. Blue knows.

This weekend is the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo BBQ cookoff weekend. Now when most of you read that sentence, you only really saw the word "rodeo", and immediatly thought of country music, and immediatly thought "sucks". I'm sorry you're programmed that way because the BBQ cookoff weekend, is in fact, awesome! Its almost as good as going to the zoo (s). There are over 200 teams all set up in a tent city format next to a carnival. Concerts going on inside some tents and on the outdoor stage. Free beer and BBQ in most tents. A friend of mine and I are going this weekend while fmjug goes to her friend's bachelorette party. Gonna be good times!

I gave up soft drinks and chips for lent...a couple of my vices. My beer consumption will go up, but not because of lent, but because softball is starting up again tonight.

Prepping a house to get it ready to sell is not fun.

That is all.

You had me at "free beer and BBQ"...

Jugdish said...

you gotta have tickets or connections to get into tents, which are not hard to get. its held outside of reliant stadium, and for miles around the area you can smell BBQ all week long.

Keef said...

Yeah but per what Kod posted, "The report must be made during the covered period." You'd said you made the 1st report within 24k miles I thought, so the lemon law still applies to you


I took that as to mean the report to the BBB had to be made within that time frame

Keef said...

Sity is grate, jug

Beth said...

"I took that as to mean the report to the BBB had to be made within that time frame"

Hmmmm, could be but since the time limit is right after the part that talks about reporting the issue to the manufacturer I don't think they mean the BBB report.

Beth said...

"If there is a problem with the car that substantially impairs the use and value of the car and does not conform to the express warranty of the manufacturer, the consumer should report it to the manufacturer.

Geez, I make fun of the guy coming to Bemidji to campaign, and right as I'm uttering "death knell" he's back in the race.

this R primary has been crazy

Keef said...

Or try to trade it in on a new one and ask that they waive the penalty for turning the car in early. Sticks you with a VW for 3 more years, but at least it isn't that specific one.

Yeah, I understand that not all car issues can be duplicated. But basically what they've insinuated to us is that because they didn't find a problem that there isn't a problem.

Keef said...

"why didn't you start with that call?"


Because for the last year or so we've been taking it to the VW dealership that is like 3 miles from us for all the service. The place we boat* it is like 3 towns over

Keef said...

aja, it's like 30-40 minutes from our house to the place we boat* it

Keef said...

*leased it

what they should do is keep working on it. you said they drove it 100o miles or something like that?

Keef said...

what they should do is keep working on it. you said they drove it 100o miles or something like that?



Yeah. It was a huge deal. When we took it in, they said it was a quart low on oil. At first they wanted to drive it 600 miles because they said they needed to see if it was burning oil. We had to get a written notice from VW that we would be reimbursed the mileage because it's a lease. Then on Tuesday the service manager called me and said they drove it 1000 miles and it didn't burn any earl*. At that point he said there was nothing wrong with it. So according to VW, adding one quart of earl miraculously solved all the problems

Jugdish said...

no Lp today, but he did tuite* "kids suck"

Keef said...

Then he said "If you want, I'll allow you to bring it in every 1000 miles so we can check the oil level". I said, "if there is nothing wrong with it, why would I need to bring it in every 1000 miles to have it checked?"

my sister got a new BMW X5 in 2010 and it has been one problem after another, and the dealership just treats her like shit about it, and refused to do anything to help (because they can't fix the problem). Brakes have been squealing from the get go...they actually told her it was because she wasn't driving it enough.

Also, the electronic system periodically fails, sounds a bit like your VW problem (except with hers it only happens in winter)

Sorry Keith, that's a huuuuuge pain in the ass. My sister ended up giving up and is just stuck with a fucked up vehicle

Keef said...

Thanks. I have a feeling that we're headed down that road, too. My biggest problem with it is the danger involved with driving it. If it was just a POS that I hated, I'd just say F it and drive it to the end of the lease and have cmk drive the Jetta. But the fact that this vehicle has completely lost power 4 times on the road, with 2 of those times being during a LH turn across traffic, I'm going to do whatever I can to not put any of my family in danger. I'd drive it but I pick up bgas from the sitter every day and i'm not going to have her be in that car

Keef said...

We had our first experience with that last week. Cmk got puked on 2 nights in a row. I laughed at her

"See, you screw enough attorneys and some of their legal reasoning and knowledge rubs off on you."



-or maybe Beth's just discovered the dirty secret of the legal system....most areas of law are relatively simple for the most part, you just need to learn to navigate the maze of confusing red-tape and procedural rules that attorneys have set up to keep themselves in business.

-that's the genius of businesses like legal zoom. They take care of the maze pretty cheaply, so people who can read, write, and articulate with some logic can do it themselves.

then i wanted to use off putting again.

i take it Tyler is trading away pujols?

tem said...

i like cargo option as well.

Blue said...

cargo is shit

Blue said...

i don't think he's even the everyday starter in centerfield this year

nyjer morgan is going to get most of the playing time

Tyler said...

Godmanit. The only thing about the Cargo trade is that I won't have a keeper at first.

El Padrino said...

"you have two kids, half your family shits in their pants...at least half"

only bbep shits his pants but he really shits his diaper so im still right here

it would be bad parenting putting him in pants without a diaper

El Padrino said...

"bgep is almost 5, i hope she doesn't shit her pants still"

good hoping, she does not

she pukes though and not like kod's cat

El Padrino said...

she needs to be puked trained or something

El Padrino said...

im going to invent that

toddlers get potty trained i will sell a system to also have them puked trained so they puke in the toilet and not everywhere else

Tyler said...

I figure Fielder will put up Pujols numbers and is younger, and Pence is a decent performer who plays for a contender. I'm not super high on Felix because of the team he plays for.

Tyler said...

EP, you got some advice on this trade?

Keef said...

The only thing about the Cargo trade is that I won't have a keeper at first.

Dang, dude who did an AR in my oft-frequented neighborhood corner store escaped....


"This afternoon, King remained on the lam, last seen on his home Red Lake Indian Reservation north of Bemidji, despite a massive manhunt involving local, state, tribal and federal law enforcement officers lasting more than 24 hours.

As a corrections officer turned away to open the door, “he heard the shackles hit the ground,” Sheriff Phil Hodapp said today. “He turned around and the guy was hot-footing it away. Both shackles were open. Somehow he had figured out how to unlock them. We don’t know how he did it.”



welcome to Indian Country Phil; betcha this wouldn't have happened on Tribal watch

Is it bad that the first picture in my head was of some of those officers carrying bows & arrows?

Tyler said...

"1st basemen are a dime a dozen"

Not in this league. Some guys are keeping two guys at first. I already feel weird about keeping two outfielders, because you can build a serviceable outfield very easily.

tem said...

yes

if i said cargo then it is 100% the wrong answer

That is all said...

"Is it bad that the first picture in my head was of some of those officers carrying bows & arrows?"



probably; but aja, Tribal Police in the area have superhuman tracking skills


from doing part time PD work up here since late 2006, I've seen some absolutely AMAZING police work on tracking fleeing suspects in the backcountry

He doesn't have Dunn. But he does have Jeter. I should ask for Jeter.

El Padrino said...

I WAS BOOOOORRRRNNNN BY THE RIVER

El Padrino said...

today was awful

Blue said...

jeter has intangibles.

Blue said...

intangibles can be very valuable in a league that is all focused on the tangibles

Blue said...

like having jeter gives pitchers the confidence to attack hitters, because he fields his position so well.

so by adding jeter, you'll probably lower your team WHIP and increase K's

El Padrino said...

blue is drunk

Tyler said...

Wait, I have a follow up question. Who would you rather have, A-Gon or Fielder?

Tyler said...

Jeter also is THE CAPTAIN.

Tyler said...

Braun won the appeal?

Blue said...

fielder will have more protection than Gonzalez

probably more RBIs, but lower avg and about the same HRs

El Padrino said...

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane.

He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat. As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his.

Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out, "Business trip or pleasure?"

She turned, smiled and said, "Business. I'm going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston. "

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs.

Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention?"

"Lecturer," she responded. "I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."

"Really?" he said. "And what kind of myths are there?"

"Well," she explained, "one popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait.

Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best.

I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck."

Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm sorry," she said, "I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don't even know your name."

"Tonto," the man said, "Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba."
