All hail the KING

I'd still rather have Durant on my team. He is only 23 years old, so in the end, my bet is he finishes with more championships than the KING, just probably not this year. Hurts Durant that he plays in the West too, much tougher conference.

The Rockies pitching is so bad, they have decided to go with a 4 man rotation. Seriously. Their starters are going to be on a 75 pitch count so they can all come back on 3 days rest. This is the most assinine thing I've ever heard of. Their starters ERA is over 6 and most of them don't make it out of the 4th inning anyway, so i guess he's just setting expectations low.

I was going to do a mailbag today, because that seemed interesting, but I went to a company Birthday Party for one of the executives and got loaded. No sexy time for me when I come home all drunk and smelling of strippers.

The saints bounty system stuff is funny. These guys all know they did it. Now, that Hargrove guy is denying that it's his voice saying "Give me My MONEY" after he knocke Favre out of the game. Well who else would have said that douchebag? Did people have side bets on who would win the bounty?

I don't think crepes are any good

breakfast burritos are the best morning food on the planet.

"then, a good friend from college died from an accident on one, and that sealed it."

i didn't know meiz went to collitch

Blue needs to hire a new reader.

tem said...

"Hargrove guy"

he sounded less than intelligent when he was defending himself on tv.

tem said...

"i didn't know meiz went to collitch"

it was kod.

Blue said...

ah, no avatar makes me see the avatar above him, which was meiz.

Blue said...

makes more cents* now

Blue said...

on a related note, I too had a very good friend in college die in a motorcycle accident. It was his fault for being drunk and stupid, but none the less, made me think twice about riding

Blue said...

My advise to H is make sure you don't start out on something that's too big. Which it sounds like you're being smart about.

blue wanted to buy a bike to commute with in college. Found one that was affordable, went to test ride it, and it was way too much bike. I literally about smashed into a dumpster. I told the guy i couldn't buy it because i valued my life too much (and it was too much bike for me)

tem said...

yes, keep it small for your first bike.

tem said...

and H should not get a crotch rocket

tem said...

a nice older honda would be good for him.

Today the North Pole is tipped closer to the sun than on any other day of 2012.

just the tip

"a nice older honda would be good for him."


Yes. Or a kickass trike.

Maybe a Honda Shadow. Those are pretty suite.

Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon was clearly upset with the umpires on the field, and afterward he called Johnson "cowardly" for requesting the check of the reliever who pitched for the Nationals in 2010.

"Insider trading, man. It's bush," Maddon said. "It's bogus. That's way too easy, right there."


Maybe tell your pitcher to stop cheating. Don't blame the other team.

Keef said...

Jerry Sandusky will not take the stand in his controversial sex-abuse trial.
Sandusky's lawyer, Joe Amendola, said Wednesday that the former Penn State assistant football coach wanted to to testify but was overruled by his attorneys



Smat*

Blue said...

obviously they knew he was cheating when he pitched for the nationals

Spaceman Spiff said...

realized a motahcykahl is halfway to a kay guys, so I'm just gonna get one of those

Keef said...

what's a kay?

Keef said...

obviously they knew he was cheating when he pitched for the nationals


Yes. And KIK

Spaceman Spiff said...

kah*

Keef said...

Maybe Joe Maddon thinks that if the other team knows that his guys are cheating, then it isn't really considered cheating

Aitch said...

Big morning

Tyler said...

Did you guys talk about how Cuban lost $200k on Facebook stock? He called it "gambling money".

Tyler said...

If a player said that, he would have to pay for a ticket to New York to visit Stern's office.

Keef said...

No. But LP said that Melo was no different than MJ or Kobe as far as being a ball stopper

Tyler said...

The only defense Melo plays is on offense.

Keef said...

Not defensive ball stopper. Like, the ball stops with him on O-fence

Tyler said...

Cubes bought 150,000 shares that totaled over $5 million and then sold it all when it started tanking. He blames the amount of stock that was available.

Tyler said...

"Not defensive ball stopper. Like, the ball stops with him on O-fence"

I would agree if he's saying he's a ball-hog, but if he's saying it should stop with him on offense because he's so talented, I would disagree. Look at what happened when he was injured; they were winning. His winning percentage in the playoffs is terrible. He's a chucker.

Keef said...

It's funny that he buys that much, and then puts blame on how much was available

tem said...

LP basically agreed with what TP is saying

Tyler said...

It's funny that he buys that much, and then puts blame on how much was available

Yeah, what do you really expect when you're buying that much stock? 150,000 shares is crazy.

tem said...

cuban had 150,000 shares and only lost $200,000? he pulled the trigger quick. or he only sold a portion of his shares.

tem said...

200,000 / 5,000,000 = 4%

he barely lost anything if he bought over $5M in shares

Keef said...

LP basically agreed with what TP is saying



TP is in Seattle

tem said...

*tyler

tem said...

i can't be held responsible for how you interpret my comments

Tyler said...

'My thesis was wrong,' Cuban said in a CNBC interview. 'I thought we'd get a quick bounce just with some excitement about the stock. I was wrong, and when you're wrong you don't wait, you just get out. I took a beating and left.'

Tyler said...

So yeah, he got out quick.

Keef said...

Whatta is TP doing in Seattle, playa?

/LP

Blue said...

cuban bought in the low 30's i read an article he wrote about the stock a couple days after it went public.

he loves the company

Keef said...

So yeah, he got out quick.




TWSS

Blue said...

he bought 50k at like 33 and another 50K at 31 which is where it's trading at now.

Blue said...

Tyler's analysis is overrated

Blue said...

regarding carmelo

Blue said...

well, yeah, he's a ball hog, kobe and jordan weren't ball hogs

Blue said...

i take back my overrated comment

it was made in haste

Blue said...

Cuban's original comments on the Facebook purchase

he bought low enough that he didn't lose any money...unlike blue

tem said...

if i bought at 31 i would hold it for awhile. i am surprised he sold it already.

Blue said...

*hardly any money

i guess if i lost $200k i'd be unhappy

Blue said...

i agree, 31 isn't a bad price.

40 or whatever i paid sucks

tem said...

if you had $2B and lost $200K you wouldn't care.

tem said...

i could live for the rest of my life on $200K /meiz

Blue said...

that's probably true, that's like me losing $10

tem said...

$200K? dats a quahtah da way ta aaaate hundred kay

Blue said...

i could live off of $10 for 3 months


/meiz

whatta interest

Keef said...

Literally

Keef said...

tem is like a math genius

tem said...

i have a calculator in my office

Blue said...

me too

i don't do math in my head, it makes it hurt

Keef said...

cheaters

tem said...

if i mess up on math at work it is bad.

tem said...

they bought me a calculator the day i started. i have no idear* how to use 70% of the functions.

tem said...

i don't even know what the following buttons do:

I/Y
CLR TVM
xP/Y
K
HYP
ICONV
nCr
CF

tem said...

and i don't know how to use the bond calculations or the present value calculations correctly.

tem said...

i use excel for that crap

tem said...

too much work talk

Keef said...

Would this happen in temhio?

Keef said...

I/Y - In Yourface
CLR TVM - Clear tem's virtual memory
xP/Y - xtra point? yes
K - Strikeout
HYP - Hide your porn
ICONV - Start a conversation with icarly
nCr - never call rev
CF - can't function

tem said...

it might

tem said...

whatta an icarly?

Keef said...

whatta an icarly?



You'll find out soon enough

Keef said...

I watch almost all those kids shows & cartoons now

Tyler said...

well, yeah, he's a ball hog, kobe and jordan weren't ball hogs

Yeah, but who would you want to start a team with or take the last shot? Kobe or Jordan or Melo. I don't even know why Melo would be in that conversation.

Keef said...

I don't watch dora. That shit is wack

Tyler said...

There are other guys I would take before Melo if I was starting a team or needed a shot.

Tyler said...

I don't even know if he's the first guy I'd take off of his own team.

Tyler said...

I don't watch dora. That shit is wack

We know you don't speak Spanish.

Keef said...

Yeah, but who would you want to start a team with or take the last shot? Kobe or Jordan or Melo. I don't even know why Melo would be in that conversation.



That's a clown question, bro

Keef said...

There's like a cartoon with a chinese character that is supposed to be like Dora. That is wack too

tem said...

"We know you don't speak Spanish."

after working at the Home Depot this long he now speaks Spanish.

tem said...

i would want to start my team with Greg Oden so that I'd get the 1st pick in the next draft.

tem said...

"I don't even know if he's the first guy I'd take off of his own team"

stop it.

whatta taking, Lin? Amare?

Keef said...

JR Smiff

Tyler said...

i would want to start my team with Greg Oden so that I'd get the 1st pick in the next draft.

2-for-1. Grate* stradgerdy*

Tyler said...

Amare if I needed a big man. I seriously think they could trade Melo for picks and win 20 more games the same season. Amare can play without the ball, Melo can't. But that's never going to happen because Lin is going to sit on the bench. Mike Woodson hates him for some reason.

Tyler said...

Long story short: the Knicks are a garbage fire. And if they could pull it together, they could make a run for a division title. Because who knows what Boston will look like, Philly still doesn't have a closer, and Toronto and New Jersey are going to be terrible for years to come. It's the worst division in basketball.

1) looks like a cnp

2) shit for shat

clear okafor's shitty contract for rashard lewis's even shittier contract

Okafor is long term, I think this is Rashard's last year

He can sit at home and make $15mm

"Lebron (cramps) expects tp play in game 5"



hahahaha what is this shit

take some midol and go play you pussy

tem said...

That's the news creating a story. Some dumbfuck asked him if he was going to play and he said "yeah" then they report he is going to play despite cramps.

He should have said thats a clown question bro.

Blue said...

then the ASPCA would have been all over his ass for making fun of journalists

Keef said...

Why do people put their email address in their email signature?

Blue said...

in case it gets printed

Keef said...

Whenever I've printed an email, it prints the address of who sent it.

Blue said...

well you have a fancy printer

Mize said...

I gotta talk to bossman tomorrow. I don't think anybody realizes how much time it's going to take to get somebody fully versed on the sample system I used to maintain and run. It'll be LOTS of overtime, and I know they're not really down with that.

Mize said...

Then again, bossman's answer to every question I've had for him has either been some variation of 'I don't give a shit' or 'I don't give a fuck'.

Keef said...

I don't think anybody realizes how much time it's going to take to get somebody fully versed on the sample system I used to maintain and run.


awesome

Mize said...

I knew you'd like that.

Mize said...

They're trying to hire temps to do something that takes a very real long-term commitment. Can't do it with that system and database.

Mize said...

And before you chime in with "but you were a temp", I had zero intentions of being a temp or being treated as a temp.

Mize said...

BEAST

Keef said...

You know me well

Keef said...

So every other temp out there has no intention of becoming a full time employee?

Mize said...

I don't know.

Keef said...

I'm not being an as. here, either. There are other people out there that are just as competent as you. Other people use a temp agency for the same reason you used one, because they're having a tough time finding work, not necessarily because they need a job for 3 weeks

Mize said...

I can tell you the current temps in Cust Svc don't have it. They lack the personality for the job, and they were told they'd be on a 10-12 week assignment, which is completely untrue.

Mize said...

I want them to succeed. I really do, because I'd get some credit for training them. They just can't pick it up like I did. I was a special case, and I've been told that repeatedly.

Mize said...

One of the temps is THE poor black single mom stereotype. I'm so disappointed in her, and I want her to pull her head out of her ass and get her shit together.

35ish, 2 kids, on welfare, wears a $500 weave, spends $100 a month to maintain said weave, drinks fucking Ciroc, gets her nails done every week, abuses her QUEST(welfare) card and blows the money on frivolous bullshit, etc...

So disappointed.

Mize said...

I gotta go kick ass at horse shoes now. Laterz.

Keef said...

and they were told they'd be on a 10-12 week assignment, which is completely untrue.



Did they tell you that it was a temporary assignment? I thought I remember you saying that your position was temporary

Spaceman Spiff said...

"I was a special case"

So Lebron just needs to drink a lot of water between now and the game tomorrow. Thanks local news.

wow, Maddon really is dumb

Mize said...

"Did they tell you that it was a temporary assignment? I thought I remember you saying that your position was temporary"


Allegedly.
