Juan Kippur

The "NFL and Union Refs reach a deal" story was the longest "breaking" news story in awhile it seemed. Either way, I'm glad they reached a deal, they just better have their best staff on for tonight's game. They should have continued to negotiate and struck a deal Friday. That way their first games are all on at once (until the Sunday nighter) and they get a few games out of the way. If they botch a call tonight, they will be under a temscope tomorrow.




I hope today is Thursday, because I'm posting.




My alarm goes off at 5:18 each morning. I can hit snooze up to three times and be ready to go in 15 minutes without being late. I enjoy having a 10 minute commute.




cmjug is going out of town this weekend, jug is a free agent, whiskey will be involved. Really I'll just be watching football and hanging out with my brothers and friends over the weekend. Good times!




stingray photo bomb




The White Sox are just depressing right now.




GO!

” If I'm Andy Reid, I'd still give Vick most of the first-team reps in practice this week. But I'd also give a handful to Foles to let both he and Vick know that Vick will be on a short leash Sunday night when the 2-1 Eagles face the 2-1 Giants at the Linc.”


short leash...ha!

El Padrino said...

thats doggone funny

Mike Carey is the best referee in the NFL despite Edward's celebrity.

El Padrino said...

agree

Mize said...

I took Baltimore for my suicide pick this week

El Padrino said...

by and by do you guys see the ref deal was done now?

El Padrino said...

"I took Baltimore for my suicide pick this week"

solid, im going pats

in order for this weekend

Pats
Ravens
Broncos

Mize said...

Ref deal wasn't confirmed until midnight Eastern.

Mize said...

"solid, im going pats"


Still trying not to blow my Pats load.

"Juan Kippur"

El Padrino said...

"Ref deal wasn't confirmed until midnight Eastern."

was done when i announced, just like CBS Sports said it was

the last part was whether they'd work tonights game or not and the last year on the pension deal

El Padrino said...

"Still trying not to blow my Pats load."

they have an easy schedule

Mize said...

Czaban had a good thought this morning. The NFL needs to do full-on NBA style intros for the refs this weekend. Stadiums will erupt.

tem said...

"the last part was whether they'd work tonights game or not and the last year on the pension deal"

so it wasn't done, got it.

tem said...

"Mike Carey is the best referee in the NFL despite Edward's celebrity"

you gotta put the face of the refs out there and that is Edward

El Padrino said...

it was done, the NFL was content with them coming back Sunday but the Union wanted to have a crew ready for thursday

tem said...

so it wasn't done. got it.

tem said...

it would have been better if it was a surprise....


wait...wait...is that...is that Ed Hochuli music?!?!?!

El Padrino said...

let me ask you something

when you make a deal with someone and shake their hand do you consider that deal done?

or do you wait until all the paperwork is completed before you consider it done?

I'm the handshake guy.

Keef said...

I didn't buy my house on a handshake

Keef said...

Or my car

I miss Him said...

i'm a handshake guy trapped in a suit

/ep

El Padrino said...

right before kick off

lights go out, lightning strikes the air

you hear this

GOOD GOD, BUSINESS JUST PICKED UP

El Padrino said...

I didn't buy my house on a handshake

different

tem said...

"when you make a deal with someone and shake their hand do you consider that deal done?"

it isn't done until it is done.

the phrase agreed in principle means handshake.

done means it is signed up and there are signatures on paper.

tem said...

"when you make a deal with someone and shake their hand do you consider that deal done?

or do you wait until all the paperwork is completed before you consider it done?

I'm the handshake guy."

this translates to "i do about 80% of the work that is needed. the other 20% is hard and i don't do it"

tem said...

new big boss is going to give you that handshake agreement of being a VP if you work hard.

that's just as good as actually getting the title and the salary increase.

tem said...

being from NYC and you are a handshake guy? good lord. NYC is full of people who will fuck you over royally if you don't get it signed up.

you never cease to amaze me.

I miss Him said...

i'm a don't count your chickens before they've been defeathered and slaughtered kind of guy

I miss Him said...

tem works in finance

working in finance makes you wait until there are signatures


we've had a couple of big deals fall apart long after the handshake.

Keef said...

Paperwork completed = you're set, deal is done


Handshake = "don't worry, I'll take care of you" /stache guy

Jugdish said...

Handshake = "don't worry, I'll take care of you" /stache guy

"we've had a couple of big deals fall apart long after the handshake."

^ all day

Jugdish said...

I like the Lp trapped in a suit era

El Padrino said...

maybe i watch too many Pawn Stars

they shake, deal is done

paperwork is a formality

El Padrino said...

"we've had a couple of big deals fall apart long after the handshake."

us too with clients and stuff

i just picture a bunch of guys in the room going down a list

agree agree
agree agree
agree agree

ok guys we all agree looks like we have a deal

handshakes all around

we'll get the lawyers to start writing this up but that's just a formality, leak to the media we have a deal agreed upon in principle




sounds done to me, but i'm pretty dumb so i guess that's not how other people see it

tem said...

"handshakes all around

we'll get the lawyers to start writing this up but that's just a formality, leak to the media we have a deal agreed upon in principle"

this is when

1) the lawyers think of crazy shit nobody would think of then you argue some more about it and decide what to do

2) the lawyer from side A puts something in there that screws side B so you argue about it

3) you figure out that you didn't really agree on something or forgot to agree on something and argue about it

4) the lawyers put wrong stuff in there on purpose to make it so that you have to make them redo it and they get to bill you more

5) the lawyers accidentally revert some sections to the original version and you have to have it changed again.

6) you argue again about the stuff you already argued about.

7) the lawyers have a conference call to figure out what version of the contract we all should be working on and bill you for 5 lawyers at a time being on the call.

8) a tax guy tells you what you agreed on will cause one side to pay a lot of tax.

9) you renegotiate that point

10) the lawyers put the language in for the renegotiated point incorrectly

11) you fix the language and it is about 90% similar to what you agreed to in the first place.

12) you decide to either say fuck it and sign it, or keep arguing or to just not sign it and the deal falls apart.

I miss Him said...

10b) the lawyers forget to turn on "track changes" when working with the document, so nobody knows if the changes that were agreed upon actually got changed, and the lawyers have to start over again.

El Padrino said...

point is i think -

i know the difference between agreeing to a deal and a done deal

i broke the news a bit early and it ended up as breaking news later in the night

I miss Him said...

EP is of the twitter era. be the first to report something and worry about the facts later. it's a 50/50 shot you'll be right.

I miss Him said...

playing tOSU in week 3.

so tem skates by another season without having to play one of the best teams

tem said...

"so tem skates by another season without having to play one of the best teams"

YAY.

Mize said...

Because week 1 would have been the only time to do it, and I want knock some rust off before Tem kicks the shit out of me. Also didn't want to have to set a time to play right off the rip.

Jesus. Your team is like an A+ for offense, A for defense and A overall. if you can't beat Boise with that team then maybe you should get in the girl's league.

NFL network wasn't stealing good games from the major networks. They pay too much money to not have the marquee games of the week.

I miss Him said...

does seem like the MNF matchups have been better so far this year though

El Padrino said...

yes, monday night football is a powerful franchise

thursday night football, notsomuch

El Padrino said...

"my iphone5 arrived today."

so overated

tem said...

your face is overrated

Keef said...

Being from CM, LP knows a thing or two about what overrated means

El Padrino said...


"Being from CM, LP knows a thing or two about what overrated means"

i know right, Tebow is SO OVERRATED

El Padrino said...

Baltimore laying wood tonight, -12.5

although the 8 straight wins, which dates back 5 years and the fact that it's the Ravens 3rd game in 18 days or that they played Sunday night and the fact that everyone will take them in the suicide pools all over has me a bit worried

but then i just think Ray Rice will carry the team tonight and they'll be fine

Keef said...

Did anyone see the play from the Jets game where Sanchez threw that quick out to Tebow when Tesus was lined up in the slot? Fucking drilled Tebow in the head before he turnt* around. It was awesome. I bet he did that on purpose.

Mize said...

I think Tebow is properly rated

El Padrino said...

he certainly did that on poirpose*

El Padrino said...

what is staffords status?

El Padrino said...

not hsi facebook status please

I miss Him said...

all tebow does is win football games

I miss Him said...

if you hate tebow as your QB, you hate winning

tem said...

yes

Mize said...

"what is staffords status?"


Hammy.

I told people not to draft him, but Nooooooooooooooo.

I miss Him said...

well of course he was going to get drafted.

Mize said...

He was getting drafted too early in my leagues

tem said...

yahoo said he practiced today and is fine.

I miss Him said...

but you thought he should go undrafted?

Mize said...

Baaaaaahahahahahahahaha

Axford shit the bed again. That's a clown pitcher, bro.

Mize said...

"but you thought he should go undrafted?"

Shut your dick sucker.

Mize said...

I checked Pride Of Detroit on lunch today and they didn't have an update yet.

Ray was feast or famine for me last year; and for several games he was healthy, yet had inexplicably low carries and targets


After one game Harbaugh even admitted to forgetting about him after being called out by Ed Reed after the Ravens lost and a healthy Ray had only around 6 touches all game

*that being said, I miss having him around. My first round picks this year have been shaky at best

Played today, offense might come along....no pass rush really....d backfield has 1 super slow dude, he needs benched.

tem said...

Touchback? Horrible call. Did you see how long it took that official to blow his whistle??? People are going to get hurt. These guys are rusty.

Mize said...

Time to test out the Badgers' new Spread offense against the Sun Devils

Mize said...

Well, I'm only down 13 at half. Forgot about the interceptions.

tem said...

Passing be hard you.

tem said...

Only throw to wide open receivers running straight away from a defender.

tem said...

Crossing routes, gos and square ins.
....maybe a slant. Curls are bad unless the receiver is uncovered.

tem said...

Post is ok if there is 0 safety help. If the safety is anywhere near it the safety will INT it.

Mize said...

Took lead w/ <2mins left

Stopped paying attention

picked ask coach on D

figured time would run out

it didnt

lost on td w/ 3 seconds left
