NFL Week 1(unrelated)

It's early, but this is shaping up to be a good sports weekend for LOV. As I'm starting this, I'm streaming the Bucs Panthers game, and I really like what I'm seeing out of the Bucs. Doug Martin looks great. He picks a hole, and slams into that fucker with an outstanding burst.

The rat-ass Lions won a game they should have lost. I still hate their playcalling.

The GGGGGGeeee-Men!

Jug and I picked each other's teams to win in our suicide pools. I'm telling you guys, stay away from the Lions. They have 6-10 written all over them. I'll be picking against the Colts until somebody else proves to be worse. Luck scares me because I know he's going to win them a few games.

RGIII, baby! I'm so happy for Skins fans right now. They've earned it.

Packers fans are by FAR the worst in the NFL. They largely don't know shit about football. I cannot stand them. And guys, please do not force your kids to wear the logos of your teams until they can comprehend what you're doing to them. I like that one of Blue's girls knows what's going on as far as the Broncos go. Seriously though, this kind of shit disgusts me.


You fucking loser, you're not bonding with a 1 year old over wearing matching clothes.

And Jermichael Finley? He's one of THE best tight ends in the NFL, and Packers fans hate him, and want him off the team. I'm dead fucking serious. Most Packers fans are a split second away from calling him a dumb n----- at all times. Seriously. You can hear it in their voices and see it in their faces. Only in Wisconsin do people get mad and corner you and expect you to give reasons for not liking the Packers. Worst football fans on earth. I hate the Packers because of their fans. No other reason.

Now that that's out of the way, the few of you that still bother to do literally anything with twitter should follow @sbnationgif . They do a terrific job over there.

Shitballs. My $FNFL matchup would be out of reach if I had just stuck with the Jets D instead of dropping them & going with a -3 output from that "improved" Bills D against the Jets O that can't score. I have 139 vs this week's MNF All-Stars & their 88.2 so far.

Oktoberfest was fun on Saturday night. Hanging out with folks I know from various internet outlets. There are 2 couples that are usually a bit awkward, but I like 'em though. My guy Kyle & his wife absolutely don't drink beer and still came to Oktoberfest. He ordered a Hofbrau Hefeweizen and the numb nut poured him some super dark shit. Luckily, my friend Nicole is a boisterous fuck like me and snatched his liter stein and took that shit back. Lots of incoherent singing and drinking ensued. Also being made fun of for having a camera and not a smartphone. I'd be all they way down with a smartphone if I wasn't required to buy a data plan. ANYWHO, they sell sausages that are similar to summer sausage via random cart vendors. I had a half of one. It was pretty fucking good. The German type folks are big on putting hearty snacks in your belly because you're drinking beer. I like that. The 1st band of the night was a 40 piece brass band. They were pretty awesome, and once in a while they'd get up on the tables and play Gloria for tips. The wimminladies would get up & put dollar bills in their hose. And the conga lines! Long, snaking, seemingly never-ending conga lines! I had a ball. Here's like, 2 pictures.



Good times.

I couldn't come up with a good El Pad how-to video, so here's Clint Eastwood for Tem. Watch the video and listen to the song, you hillbilly. It's a cartoon, so you should like it.

Blue said...

Mize said...

We determined at Oktoberfest that all songs are instantly improved by adding a "HEY!" at the end of the hook.

Mike said...

Good week 1. Bears win, packers lose, won 3 of 4 $$ league games, down by .5 with gates going tonight and he has Torrey smith.

Lions made me sweat yesterday....216 people in that suicide league, 20 out after yesterday. Had Philly lost you could have added 25 more to that list...stupid eagles

Mike said...

Damn...thought I had the right email addy at logon

Mike said...

Guess not

Jugdish said...

White sox just can't seem to figure out the royals.

Start to bears game was horrible

Michael Irvin and prime time on the same wrap up show is too much

Blue...peyton thoughts?

Jugdish said...

Akers kick was awesome!

Mize said...

FUCK THE PACK!

Mize said...

Remember when Akers was washed up 5 or 6 years ago? Good times.

Mize said...

I hope the Bungles win tonight so LP can have the only football loss from week 1.

Mize said...

Lions - Win
Vikes - Win
Bears - Win
Jets - Win
Redskins - Win
Pats - Win
Falcons - Win
Buccaneers - Win
Bengals - ???
Giants - LOSERS

Mize said...

EAGLES - WIN

Jugdish said...

Luck looked like a rookie yesterday...made some nice throws. Reggie Wayne helps a lot. They need to suck for a few years and get some high picks. Freak still has Peyton chills.

Jugdish said...

I like that the pack was the only team in the north that lost

Mize said...

"Freak still has Peyton chills."

So sad

Keef said...

I had a 6 pack of Blue Moon yesterday. Can't remember the last time I had a six pack

hope they fix it so i know how many purnts* i need from rivers and rice tonight

tem said...

they dropped your face

tem said...

i'm at work. can't listen to that song.

Blue said...

"Blue...peyton thoughts?"

he's still got his friend mr. wobble, and doesn't seem to have nearly as much arm strength, but I think that's because he's not stepping into throws.

He does always find the open guy though, and manipulates defenses pretty well.

i expected them to beat Pittsburgh, next week, MNF against the Falcons will be a good testes

tem said...

he threw 1 spiral i think

tem said...

"He does always find the open guy though"


that all day

tem said...

saw sooooo many throws by QBs where a LB or safety stepped into the coverage area. Brees did it a lot. Vick did it every throw. Peyton did it maybe once. He doesn't get fooled too much.

tem said...

stafford didn't do it much. he just threw to the main coverage guy. he didn't even bother getting fooled.

Mize said...

Stafford's picks are usually to wide open defenders. It's like he makes it as easy as possible for them.

Mize said...

Matt just wants to give everybody a chance.

tem said...

downs syndrome is a bitch

Mize said...

GO PACK GO!

El Padrino said...

And guys, please do not force your kids to wear the logos of your teams until they can comprehend what you're doing to them.

stop it

Jugdish said...

Yes, stop it

Keef said...

It looks like the guy in the photo mize posted could really be BJ Raji

El Padrino said...

saints lost because they didnt wear black

El Padrino said...

soon as bossman leaves im watching wall to wall highlights

El Padrino said...

Jugdish said...

Mize probably ran across his baby book last night, saw pics of him in packers clothes, and was bitter.

tem said...

kids should always be in team colors

that way they can say "we" when they get older

El Padrino said...

ToddPacker said...

"texas was suite tp yes?"

yeah, good times. Texas food was grate. A&M fans were very cool and they heart the SEC. the stadium was kind of dumpy. 6th st was awesome. didn't realize how much hatred there was between texas and Texas A&M.

Mize said...

Was there an annoying, red-clad woman screaming RUUUUUUUUN! at the top of her lungs every play?

the 5000 yard thing --- many 300 yeard games yesterday keefer

El Padrino said...

my god, the niners looked fantastic

El Padrino said...

jesus they are going to shit so hard on the lions sunday night

El Padrino said...

i really want to bet again

Keef said...

well we minus well write them all in as 5000 yard passers.


related note: I guess that using the same logic, the GGGGGGGGGGGGGGmen are also going to be 0-16. Shitty

Keef said...

the hairy potter chick?



nerd

El Padrino said...

aitch i mentioned chandler jones last week

he is going to be suite for many years

El Padrino said...

"well we minus well write them all in as 5000 yard passers."

stafford and brees yes

the rest probably not

tem said...

0-16 would be grate

El Padrino said...

keef even has to as. up small talk

El Padrino said...

if colt mc coy starts browns win

ahik

tem said...

brees - not until he learns his receivers aren't 8 feet tall.

El Padrino said...

he did it already

El Padrino said...

suite seahawks had 4 timeouts

tem said...

"he did it already"

now you are as.ing up small talk.

obviously i mean for this year.

tem said...

numbnuts

El Padrino said...

"obviously i mean for this year."

sorry

El Padrino said...

i know a good way to cut down crime in chicago

Keef said...

seahawks TO thing was hilarity. Fox has that ex director of officials guy on when that was going on. The 3rd timeout should of* been when the Seahawks guy got hurt inside of 2 minutes. Then they called a TO after that. Ref comes on the field and says that because the guy was hurt on an incomplete pass when the clock was already stopped, they wouldn't be charged a TO.
Then the ex director guy says that was wrong, that they should still be charged with a TO, just that 10 seconds wouldn't be run off the clock because the clock was stopped from an incomplete pass. Totally clowed* the ref

Keef said...

The officiating yesterday was so awful

Keef said...

now you are as.ing up small talk.

tem said...

i did not think it was worse than usual.

tem said...

FOX had that ex official guy on their college broadcasts. he should stick to pro. he doesn't know all the college rules.

when he has to start every sentence with "well if it was the NFL..." then maybe he shouldn't be doing college games.

Keef said...

There were a lot of PI that weren't called.

tem said...

i'll give you PI not being called as much as before, but i like it when they let them play a little.

i thought the lack of PI was consistent across all the games. made me think the NFL told them not to call it as much.

tem said...

when i watched the games i pretty much decided the replacement officials did good enough.

tem said...

good enough for the NFL not to run back to the old refs.

El Padrino said...

nfl has all the leverage here

tem said...

99% of it.

1% of it is Hoculi's arms.

El Padrino said...

meanwhile hoculi is the man behind one of the biggest gaffes in reffing history

Keef said...

your face is a gaffe

El Padrino said...

sandwich then nap

Mize said...

I was less than pleased with the refs letting the Long kid line up in the neutral zone for the entire game.

tem said...

didn't see that.

Keef said...

Also, in the AZ/SEA game, the left tackle for Seattle was coming out of his stance a split second before the snap on almost every play. They only called it once that I saw.

Keef said...

Okung

Blue said...

Al michaels and collinsworth just made fun of the refs the whole. I'm sure goodell loved that

tem said...

"the left tackle for Seattle was coming out of his stance a split second before the snap on almost every play. "

this one happened all the time last year. maybe not with that dude. but certain dudes would jump the snap, especially tackles, every play and not get called for that false start.

Keef said...

tem ♥s the replacement refs

Blue said...

Granted a challenge last night even after the next play was run. A couple of the spots were just horrible. Almost let John fox decline a false start, so they could take the sack.

That stuff happens all the time every year. These refs are doing a fine job. They are probably better than the normal refs

/tem

Mize said...

"didn't see that."

When the Lions O was traveling to the right of the screen he was on the bottom. His head and hand were covering the ball all game. If he played nose, he would have been holding onto the ball with the center.

tem said...

"tem ♥s the replacement refs"

yes

tem said...

"Almost let John fox decline a false start"

almost.

Keef said...

If he played nose, he would have been holding onto the ball with the center.



AHIK*

tem said...

keith can just answer for me.

"That stuff happens all the time every year. These refs are doing a fine job"

was spot on

tem said...

replacement refs are getting a bad rap from all the announcers.

they are pretty much doing just as well as the old refs. but the announcers need to make a story out of something, so every little thing gets pointed out.

tem said...

"A couple of the spots were just horrible"

some were spot on. they nailed the vick spot when he fumbled.

tem said...

i'm driving the replacement ref bandwagon.

Keef said...

spot on

Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton has a low ankle sprain.



What a puss. He had to be taken off the field on a cart.

Kolb was meant to be the starter for a week.

i figure they were in pakistan and had to choose between taco bell and falaphael town.

nah bases have decent enough options

some bases have mcdonalds, bk's, taco bells, etc.

it was a block in the back on the coverage team. Come on, bro, that's legit

That call was spot on. These refs are doing a great job.

"mize

They thought it was sprained. That's all I know

Mize said...

"While the loss was bad enough, yesterday's big story was two Brewers who had to leave the game early. First Corey Hart left the game with a sprained ankle and what he described as a "burning" sensation in his foot,..."

Keef said...

Goddman. Hopefully he doesn't miss too many games. Playoffs time is not the time for this to happen

Keef said...
