LP's Q&A. As. edition

Do your parents strike you growing up? Yep. Dad used the belt & moms used the wooden spoon. My mom broke at least 5 spoons whooping me. I remember one time when I was like 4 or 5, I did something and my dad got pissed and was chasing me down the hall with his belt, whipping it at me like I was a horse pulling his carriage.
Did they run the AC in the summer? Still don't get this question. It's summertime. Who doesn't run the AC in the summertime, except for people in Alaska & Seattle.
Did you remember your first kiss? Yeah. She was my next door neighbor in Utar*. Summer between my 7th & 8th grade year. Her name was Melanie. I only remember this because she was having a party at her house, and there was this girl in our neighborhood who I had the biggest crush on since like 3rd grade, Shauna Fitzgerald. I remember I was sitting on the couch with her at the party and were talking, and it got like awkward because we bolth* wanted to kiss but we didn't. Then later on we were playing spin the bottle in the basement and I ended up kissing the neighbor chick.
What was your mothers best dish? Probably her lasagna. She still has us over for dinner whenever she makes it. She uses cottage cheese instead of Ricotta. It sounds weird I guess, but it worked. Love that shit.
First car? First car I owned was a 1989 Nissan pickup. I boat* it from my friend in 2007 for $800. I had that for about 6 months and then I traded it in for a Jeep Wrangler. I wish I still had that thing, that was my favorite car that I've had. Had 34" tires with aluminum American Racing rims. I had to trade that in when I moved back to AZ because it didn't have AZ.
Best friend? Hmmm, I guess it'd be my boy Bardsley. I've known him for about 10 years now. I don't really talk to any friends of mine from when I was in hike school. So it'd probably be Bards. And he dated csil, so I guess I would owe him any favor he ever axed of me because of that bullshit.
How many fights have you gotten into? I fight with cmk all the time. (S). If you count a fight as a punch being thrown, then I've been in exactly zero fights. If you count some pushing, then it's probably one or 2 times. I had this friend in elementary school & jr high who was like 6" shorter than me and he wanted to throw down all the time. He was the stereotypical Napoleon. He would try to get me to throw down all the time and I would laugh and walk away.
Have you ever committed a crime? Of course. Nothing major, though. When I was 8, I was in the grocery store in the aisle where they have the candy in the bins that you can bag yourself. I haven't seen those in forever. But I grabbed a couple pieces of toffee out and was eating them, and some lady saw me and took me to the manager. The manager walked with me to find my parents. I got whipped pretty good that night, and I think I got grounded for a month. I've nerve* been arrested for anything, though. Which is nice.
What was your first job? Pizza Hut. Making minimum wage, which was $4.25/hr back then. I started there during the summer between my soph & jr year. Manager bitch had me close every night, and I ended up quitting that winter because it was making me tired as shit at school every day. The thing I'll remember most about that job is that the mgr & asst mgr bolth* smoked like chimneys. And they would smoke in the back area where we answered the phones and made all the dough. It was grate. The best thing about that job was that I basically brought home a Bigfoot pizza every night.
Favorite sports moment? I'll name 2. First, my favorite sports moment that didn't involve one of my teams was being at game 7 of the '01 WS. We sat directly above 1st base, about 20 rows from the top of the stadium. It went from being so quiet you could hear a pin drop when Soriano hit the go ahead HR, to going absolutely bonkers when they tied it in the 9th against Rivera. My favorite sports moment involving one of my favorite teams was when tOSU won the national title in '03. I was at a bar right across from the stadium that was full of OSU people. When Dorsey threw the ball into the ground to end the game, that was the loudest place I've ever been.
Are you afraid of anything? It's been mentioned here before, but the one thing I'm deathly afraid of is, um, death. Shit keeps me up at night sometimes when I'm thinking about it, and I'm just laying there and my mind wanders all over the place. It's a weird feeling.
Any regrets? I was thinking no at first. But I think the one regret I have is something I mentioned here last week. Having sexy time with the married chick when I was younger. Her family ended up finding out and they ended up getting divorced. Worse* decision I ever made, hands down. That is the only play I'd like to do over.

Good read! I still grieve over the discontinuation of Bigfoot pizza

Blue said...

yeah, working at a pizza place was the bomb


i still think i'd love to open my own place

Blue said...

cmblue gives me the /no look whenever i bring it up though.

Beth said...

I've got a female friend who opened a pizza place with hubby. Ended up getting divorced because when the hubby was supposed to be running the place he'd just hang out and drink their draft beer and ended up banging one (maybe more) of the teen waitresses.

Maybe cmblue is worried about the same thing happening.

Beth said...

Blue's 1st hire at "Blue's Pizza" = hot receptionist.

so you're telling me that if i open a pizza place, i get to drink beer and bang teenagers, and get a divorse*

GTFO

blue doesn't like ricotta in his lasagna at all, he doesn't like ricotta at all.

cmblue makes a really good lasagna (sans ricotta)

"She uses cottage cheese instead of Ricotta."

seriously tho this is retarded ass shit right here

WADR

El Padrino said...

blue is retarded ass well

Beth said...

"so you're telling me that if i open a pizza place, i get to drink beer and bang teenagers, and get a divorse*"

Well the rest of the story is that the place went out of business with a lot of debt. So add "and file bankruptcy" to that list.

Blue said...

oh, i don't want that part


i want it to be a successful pizza place

Beth said...

Well see, that was the mistake of my friend and her husband, they never said up front they didn't want bankruptcy.

If they had I'm sure they'd have been fine.

Yeah this Howard shit has gone on long enough

El Padrino said...

i feel like he should be averaging 30 and 20 every night

he doesnt

Beth said...

So pizza places in other parts of the country can be successful without beer?

That's not a valid concept in Georgia - I had just assumed it was that way everywhere.

When Taco Bell heard pranksters had blanketed the town with fake flyers declaring that a location of the fast food chain was opening in town, they decided to fly in 10,000 tacos and also helicoptered in an entire taco truck for a free feast yesterday. (Bethel only has 6,200 people, so that's 1.6 tacos per person.) And were they serving America's favorite taco, Doritos Locos Tacos? Indeed, they were

funny about the ho's

we had some friends over to cookout yesterday and we were watching the end of the tournament.

cmblue was making hte comment that he sucked now because he's not getting laid. One of the guys made a comment, "well, he must be getting some action now because he's won 3 times this year"

El Padrino said...

you are assuming deron williams stays and they get howard

El Padrino said...

wallace signed 4 yr - 40MM

never gonna get it said...

It's hilarity that the Cubs have 2 All-Stars

Blue said...

they'll get howard...he has one team he wants to be traded to. If he doesnt' get traded there, he won't sign the extension, thus making him a FA at the end of the year...no team is going to give up anything of significance to get him if he's not going to stay.

if the nets are smart, they'll just fill out their team, and then wait for D-howard to come via Free Agency next summer.

never gonna get it said...

he has one team he wants to be traded to



Give him 5 minutes, he'll change his mind

El Padrino said...

the nets are not smart

even if he goes there what if deron signes with dallas

already a proven team players love playing for the cube

Blue said...

"even if he goes there what if deron signes with dallas"

then they sign Nash or Lin

El Padrino said...

oh they will

blue got a crystal ball over the weekend

El Padrino said...

toronto = nash

never gonna get it said...

Why in the world would Nash go to Toronto? They are awful

Mize said...

"Why in the world would Nash go to Toronto? They are awful"


Because Nash wants to finally get P-A-I-D

prokorhov will pay nash if they can't get D-will

never gonna get it said...

Because Nash wants to finally get P-A-I-D



He's made like $110 mil in his career. He's probably looking for a ring more than getting P-A-I-D

Blue said...

although he is canadian

El Padrino said...

Canadian, two hours or less to nyc (lives here), 3 year deal

only deal breaker is no ring

El Padrino said...

which at this point only the Lakers give him that shot

no news of a darkhorse team bidding for him

it's a 4 team race, all of them are not contenders, even the Knicks

El Padrino said...

*cept lake show

El Padrino said...

lakers need to trade gasol

El Padrino said...

that's big money for old man garnett

lot of nba mileage on that guy

Mize said...

You'd be surprised. He or his people said he'll be going for the big payday.

$12mil/yr is similar to what he made the last 4 or 5 years in Phoenix, IIRC

never gonna get it said...

I'm not saying you're wrong. I have no idear. I would think the ring would be more important to him

H should do it. The fight question could be a 17 scroller

Blue said...

aren't the heat chasing nash as well?

i think he'd have a chance at a ring there.

El Padrino said...

just heard lake, nets, knicks and raptors

El Padrino said...

they can't pay him 12 per or give him 3 years

at least i dont think they can

El Padrino said...

the lines for pok pok ny are retarded

shit has to die down considerably for me to even think about going there

Blue said...

i'm sure they can't pay him 12m. I think they only have the midlevel they can offer...which would be in the neighborhood of 5mm.

But they'd have to choose between him or Ray Allen

that whole story is wierd.

Anderson Cooper, 45, has never talked about private life. But he recently made Out magazine's Power 50 list. And he has long been rumored to be gay. Now, his friend of more than two decades, writer Andrew Sullivan, has asked Cooper about it for The Daily Beast.
And Cooper gives a lengthy reply, including:
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.

El Padrino said...

shocker

Beth said...

"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud"

That's a loss for women, although as EP said not a surprise.

Blue said...

all the ladies love anderson

tem said...

UFC talk:

Anderson Silva
Chael Sonnen

Silva is going to destroy Sonnen. I predict at worse a 2nd round TKO. probably a TKO within 3 mins of round 1. Sonnen will try a takedown, get stuffed and then get punched and kicked a lot.


Forrest Griffin
Tito Ortiz

I'm going with Ortiz here. I think Forrest is more interested in just collecting a few more checks and putting on some good fights. Ortiz by a decision. Ortiz will want it slightly more.

Cung Le
Patrick Cote

I'll go with Le here. Cote is solid, but the UFC keeps pushing these asian guys on us, eventually one will be good.


Dong Hyun Kim
Demian Maia

I'll go with Maia here. 1 of the asian guys is going to lose and I say Kim loses. Actually no, Maia looked bad last time I saw him fight. I'm picking Kim to win. Double asian victories.



Chad Mendes
Cody McKenzie

I refuse to ever pick anyone named Cody to win a fight (sorry Kod).

Chad by boring decision. or Chad by Cody running out of energy and getting TKOed.

Blue said...

to be honest, anybody who still goes by the name anderson is a flaming red flag that they are gay

Blue said...

or flaming rainbow flag

all the women love all gay men who haven't come out yet.

Of course LP knew

but chances are good that chael sonnen will be quoting blue soon in order to rile up silva.

Would you like to bet this? I would like to see Silva destroy Sonnen, but Silva hasn't taken a fight seriously in forever
