Endeavor

Space Shuttle Endeavor came through Houston yesterday on its final ferry flight on its way to LA, and spent the night here at Ellington Field. A group of us went up on a 50 foot tower along the flight line yesterday to watch it circle the area and land. We also got to see it take off this morning. It was pretty suite. I would post some pics, but I don't see the option on here and I don't have the time to figure it out this morning, so I'll do it later.

GO!

I miss Him said...

Mize said...

"don't like these spreads this week"

This, all day. Thank god I could play the Niners this week.

Mize said...

"played softball last night, was a make up game from tuesday (rain)"


Whaaaaa??

Keef said...

Maybe he's their Eddie Gaedel

I miss Him said...

that's right, he plays fastpitch.

forgot about that

Keef said...

It's rough pitch softball

tem said...

i wonder if he is an all star at softball too

El Padrino said...

you play softball?

yes, it's a week night fall league
i dont like to play in the summer

El Padrino said...

"i wonder if he is an all star at softball too"

i mean, all star is a stretch because i have no power but yea i can play

El Padrino said...

for some reason we played in one of the worst hoods in the city

I miss Him said...

so brooklyn

I miss Him said...

i should pay someone to stand in line for me an iphone5 tomorrow.

Jugdish said...

i mean, all star is a stretch because i have no power but yea i can play

El Padeckstein

El Padrino said...

crown heights is awful

El Padrino said...

never had power despite my musuclar build

El Padrino said...

i must not swing from the legs

El Padrino said...

i'm amazed pedroia hits bombs

El Padrino said...

in hike skool i had 4 home runs total in 3 seasons

only one cleared an actual wall

tem said...

order it on the intrawebs.

tem said...

i don't know many 5' 9.5" people with big power.

tem said...

"i must not swing from the legs"

legs push, hips torque, arms are mostly just along for the ride.

although in slow pitch softball a big guy can arm swing a home run.

Mize said...

Why does everybody with an iphone always seem to have to get the new one if they're so great?

I don't get it.

tem said...

good question

Mize said...

El Pad really plays fast pitch? Like the girls?

El Padrino said...

no windup, girls wind up

it's underhand you can throw it as hard as you want as long as you don't turn the wrist over (like sidearm)

it's just the opposite of a lob league

nothing difficult about it

I miss Him said...

"Why does everybody with an iphone always seem to have to get the new one if they're so great?"

i still have the iphone4. mine is almost 2 years old now.

I don't need a new one, just want 4g.

If this one wasn't 4G i wouldn't be buying it

El Padrino said...

bossman out too
i aint doing shit

man today is so suite

tem said...

how far are the fences?

El Padrino said...

2 years is right about the time you get free upgrades and discounts

what about unlimted date though, isn't that coming off the table if you renew?

El Padrino said...

data

El Padrino said...

"how far are the fences?"

depends on the park/field

tem said...

"depends on the park/field"

really? they aren't all the exact same dimensions? gtfoot!

El Padrino said...

i have two tickets from the firm for the yankee game tomorrow i will try to unload

El Padrino said...

"really? they aren't all the exact same dimensions? gtfoot!"

so im saying i dont know
some fields we've played dont have fences

tem said...

so on a field that has fences that you have played on how far were the fences?

goodness this is like pulling fucking teeth.

for instance in ohio the fences are usually about 310.

that's the kind of answer i am looking for.

Mize said...

The main baseball diamond in Cedarburg doesnt have a fence. It's a fucking joke, considering the amount of bombs those guys would hit, and the fact that Cedarburg is pretty fucking rich. Get a fucking fence.

tem said...

i would say 95% of the fields around columbus have fences.

El Padrino said...

"for instance in ohio the fences are usually about 310."

i dont know

310 I guess

El Padrino said...

pulling teetch is pretty fucking easy if you have the right tools

tem said...

310 with the pitcher throwing hard would be doable assuming i could make contact. AHIIK

El Padrino said...

the field last night was like 500 to right, 275 in left, center was jutted by some housing buy straightway gotta be 375 ish

all guesses no numbers are actually posted

it was really strange
i hope we never play there again

tem said...

sounds like a normal city field.

stuck in the middle of a bunch of shit.

I miss Him said...

don't care about unlimited Data.

it's a work phone, i don't pay for my plan

El Padrino said...

you dont have a recreational phone

my work phone is strictly for email and has one gazillion firewalls that prevents me from doing anything

tem said...

blue is the man. he doesn't have firewalls.

Keef said...

So if it's fast pitch, do the catchers wear gear?

El Padrino said...

they wear masks and shins so yes

never seent a full gear

fast isn't exactly the best way to describe it, it's not like 60mph

Keef said...

medium pitch

Keef said...

i mean, all star is a stretch because i have no power but yea i can play


never had power despite my musuclar build




Even when LP tries to be humble, he can't.

El Padrino said...

If you want an iPhone 5 on Friday, get in line -- or pay someone to do it. The going rate for a line stander is $40 to $150.

‘”I don’t want to tip-toe the lines of anything that’s happened with bounties or anything like that, but they were definitely going after me,’ Griffin said. ‘They made it a point, obviously, all week to hit me. Some of the shots were cheap of that nature. But it’s nothing I can control. Teams are going to try to hit me because they don’t think I can take a hit. I think I’ve proved over my career that I can.’”

man you cant say that yet young man

take your beating

El Padrino said...

layoffs here today

smile to frown

I miss Him said...

as long as you're not laid off, smile


maybe that's why bigboss man isn't in today, laid off

Mize said...

Hello promotion?

I miss Him said...

he's already been promoted, just doesn't have the title or the money yet

Mize said...

Chris Carpenter had a rib removed in July. He keeps it in a jar in his bathroom and plans to make it into a piece of jewelry.

He's such a dildo.

El Padrino said...

"maybe that's why bigboss man isn't in today, laid off"

hope not because reporting to the next man would disastrous

El Padrino said...

"Chris Carpenter had a rib removed in July. He keeps it in a jar in his bathroom and plans to make it into a piece of jewelry."

i was thinking the other day of getting a rib removed

tem said...

layoffs don't happen on thursdays, thats what fridays are for.

El Padrino said...

tem wants to suck his own dick?

tem said...

::insert tem would need multiple ribs removed for that joke here::

Mize said...

"i was thinking the other day of getting a rib removed"


Yeah, but you're not a tremendous douchebag like Carpenter.

El Padrino said...

::insert tem would need multiple ribs removed for that joke here::

you would know

El Padrino said...

man that orakpo/carriker injuries brutal

tem said...

i have a side pain when i drink cold things. i figured it had something to do with that rib.

I miss Him said...

yeah, ribs are usually very sensitive to cold drinks

tem said...

the dr. says it has something to do with pressure on a something or other and the something or other pushing up against the rib.

if the rib wasn't there it wouldn't push up against the rib.

that was my thought. never ran it by the doctor. cmtem thinks it is retarded.

Keef said...

blue knows

Mize said...

"that was my thought. never ran it by the doctor. cmtem thinks it is retarded."

I like to think that a lot tem/cmtem conversations end with her letting out a big sigh and slinking into another room.

El Padrino said...

I like to think that a lot wife/husband conversations end with the wife letting out a big sigh and slinking into another room

*ficced

El Padrino said...

cmtem thinks it is retarded.

el pad agrees with cmtem

tem said...

i file it under the "it just might be crazy enough to work" category.

tem said...

"I like to think that a lot tem/cmtem conversations end with her letting out a big sigh and slinking into another room."

generally a large roll of the eyes accompanying the sigh and then going to another room.

El Padrino said...

sometimes on purpose so you can play ncaa and for me so i can fire up the netflix machine

Keef said...

el pad agrees with cmtem

Remember when LP was going to get an Xbox? That was awesome

i don't remember that being a possibility.

"Remember when LP was going to get an Xbox? That was awesome"


When school starts back up.

Keef said...

The money isn't an issue

El Padrino said...

yeah that went out the window
i just dont care for getting one right now

i had one in the shopping cart at target like two weeks ago with all the trimmings then asked myself if i really wanted to spend $400 right now and the answer was no

Mize said...

poor black people in the hood have XBoxes.

El Padrino said...

plus, WADR, i'm not that pumped up about playing in this league you've created

Mize said...

WTF is a $400 XBox?

Mize said...

Whatta gotta Amazon?

El Padrino said...

"poor black people in the hood have XBoxes."

yeah but they get free groceries, discounted rent, free insurance and don't have to wake up for work

Keef said...

It's cool. If I didn't have one and figured I'd get worked if I got one, I would probably not get one either.

El Padrino said...

"WTF is a $400 XBox?"

200 for the unit, 80 for live, 60 on the game

excuse me $350

Keef said...

$80 for live? Jesus, everything really is more expensive in CM

El Padrino said...

i think i'll let someone else buy it for me

xmas sounds nice
i have a birthday also that can be used to cash one in

Keef said...

And the game isn't $60

El Padrino said...

"$80 for live? Jesus, everything really is more expensive in CM"

isn't universal $79.99 for 12 months?

El Padrino said...

"And the game isn't $60"

isn't is $49.99 or so plus tax and shit

Mize said...

"yeah but they get free groceries, discounted rent, free insurance and don't have to wake up for work"


Okay, Mitt.

El Padrino said...

i feel like we went over this before

El Padrino said...

you guys pretend like it's 50 bucks or something all in

like amazon is giving away xboxes and games and wonderful xbox live memberships

Mize said...

"like amazon is giving away xboxes and games and wonderful xbox live memberships"


Pretty much.

El Padrino said...

i would just hold up the league anyway i'm much more interested in watching breaking bad when i get the chance to relax at night

El Padrino said...

Melky still gonna win the battle title

tem said...

el pad would get worked, this is true.

but it is still ok that he doesn't want one.

El Padrino said...

of course id get worked i never played the game before

but after practicing id return the working

El Padrino said...

Four guys have been going to the same fishing trip for many years. Two days before the group is to leave, Ron's wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn't going. Ron's mates are very upset that he can't go, but what can they do.

Two days later the three get to the camping site only to find Ron sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, and dinner cooking on the fire.

"Shit, Ron, how long you been here, and how did you talk your missus into letting you go?"

"Well, I've been here since yesterday evening. I was sitting in my chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said, "Guess who?" I pulled her hands off, and she was wearing a brand new see through nightie. She took my hand and pulled me to our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over. On the bed she had handcuffs, and ropes! She told me to tie and cuff her to the bed, and I did. And then she said, "Do whatever you want."

So, Here I am. You guys want a beer?"

Keef said...

isn't universal $79.99 for 12 months?

You can get deals on Amazon or Ebay for like $35-$40



isn't is $49.99 or so plus tax and shit

It's $49 on Amazon, no tax, no shipping. $49 is < $60

Mize said...

It's probably even cheaper on eBay.

Keef said...

yeah some listings on ebay are < $30

Keef said...

But let's just pretend that between XBL & the game that it's $140

El Padrino said...

this online commerce business is really taking off i gotta get on this

Keef said...

LP doesn't want anything to do with people from the blog, obviously

Mize said...

Okay, I think I'm done breaking the guy's balls for a little while.

He might be getting canned today.

El Padrino said...

"LP doesn't want anything to do with people from the blog, obviously"

Mize said...

Is everybody ready for week 5 or no?

Keef said...

I already recruited week 4

Keef said...

I just tried logging online to see if I could recruit online and it says I am no currently in a dynasty league

Keef said...

not

I miss Him said...

yes, we're all ready

tem said he was ready yesterday...i think he said he's ready to move on to signing day and assign players

I miss Him said...

on a related note,

meiz is going to have like 8 Offensive tackles on his roster

Mize said...

Operation: NEW OFFENSE INSTALLATION

tem said...

I have tons of tackles and guards, some will be centers soon, others full backs.

tem said...

Key to passing is good blocking and fast receivers. Hands mean nothing. 70 hands is the same as 90 in the game.

tem said...

And yes I don't need to recruit. I am out of scholarships. Although I have two more soft commits that don't have offers.

Mize said...

I'm done with week 5

Keef said...

I'll hit up week 5 when i get home
