Thursday

I got back on centsports the other night. I know its called something else now, but its still centsports to me dammit! I've been shot down on bodog for the time being, so centsports it is. That's for the better though, I'm in 4 fantasy leagues (3 of which I really care about). Since I can't join anymore leagues, maybe I'll take up ice fishing or something. I've never been in a big money suicide league before, so I find myself spending more time analyzing that. I don't think I'll win it, but it never hurts to try. I have my pick for this week narrowed down to either the Bengals, Pats, or Giants. I'm leaning Bengals right now, but we'll see. White Sox just can't win in their division it seems. They've been leading their division for most of the year which isn't bad for a team that was picked to finish in the bottom half of their division. They can't seem to bear the Royals or Tigers. They'll have to win their division to make the playoffs, and if they do, I don't expect much out of them. Their pitching has fallen off some. They did release their 2013 schedule and will be in Houston for a 4 game series over the weekend of June 15...suite! The Americana Music Awards were on last night. I briefly considered doing a runny* diary of it for my post today, but decided against it. You're welcome. Space Shuttle Endeavor is making one last stop in Atl...err...Houston next Monday. It'll be flying around some spots in Houston before landing here at Ellington Field for an over night stay. I believe its final destination is California. I'm going to come out here and take some pics. Maybe I'll post them next week if I think about it. I'm trying to get into politics and the election and all that stuff, but I just can't. Its too irritating. I'll stick with sports talk radio. That's all I have for today. GO!

I keep forgetting spacing

sure fire ways to piss someone in the office off:


1 - tell them whatever disease, problem, injury they have is not real. ie. tell them nobody is allergic to gluten and this gluten free stuff is made up. tell them the miniscus is not a real body part.

1a - this works especially well with mental issues. ie. tell them depression isn't real and that whoever has it is just a baby. or tell them autism isn't real and that if they know an autistic kid that the kid isn't autistic he is just a jerk.

2 - tell them that you think the company gives out too many vacation days.

3 - tell them that you dislike their favorite sport because it is only for pussies.

3a - this works especially well if it is a sport their kid plays. ie, saying oh, your kid plays soccer? i thought that was only for pussies and homosexuals.

4 - tell them that you hate their favorite political candidate but refuse to give reasons.

5 - every week put out candy bars for sale for your kids baseball team.

I can't decide if the chick from Little Big Town that sings lead is hot or not. I watched that video 4 times in a row trying to figure it out, and still don't have an answer.

tem said...

she is not famous person hot, but she is regular person hot.

tem said...

her nose (of course i say this) is kind of funny and she doesn't have any 1 feature that is rocking.

her boobs are good, legs are good, etc, but nothing is fantastic.

she cleans up good though.

tem said...

meiz is turning into a country fan.

Colts

tem said...

Mize said...

"should i start this Ashlon Jeffrey kid tonight?"


Oh boy.

tem said...

its week 2. no need for sneaky picks. go with the golden picks.

El Padrino said...

only one golden pick

new england

everyone will pick them

tem said...

there ya go. if they lose then you tie because everyone will pick them.

tem said...

of course lots of people picked them last week so not everyone will pick them.

tem said...

houston and giants seem like solid picks.

El Padrino said...

do not pick the giants

El Padrino said...

houston has won the last 3 meetings vs Jax and if you build in any sort of strategy into a suicide pool you may want to have them at home vs Jax instead of away

i agree though week 2 is not a time to be cute i'd rank houston as the #2 team behind NEW England

I took houston last week so I'm eyeing other games.

Blue said...

Giants are the play

Mize said...

I took Houston. Gotta get in on that action while they still have Schaub, Arian, and Andre out there together. Take one out, and it's a crapshoot.

Blue said...

If not for the only reason being that ep is picked against them

Mize said...

I just laid a STEAMY fart. I feel filthy.

El Padrino said...

tampa is no joke this year

tem said...

i just learned that the Giants are stone cone locks and that Tampa is a joke this year.

Mize said...

"tampa is no joke this year"


I love how Doug Martin runs. He delivers the blow.

Mize said...

McDonald's (MCD) has been around for decades, and its stock has always provided great value to investors. McDonald's growth began in the United States, but as the company grew larger and larger, further expansion was required to fuel the companies growth. McDonald's expansion into foreign countries has been a slam dunk and latest numbers show that there is no reason for their foreign success not to continue.


BEAST

tem said...

el pad is really Grimace posting here to get us to eat McDonalds.

Grimace's version of viral marketing.

El Padrino said...

i'm pretty sure with my bonus in feb i will put a fair amount in mcd for my kids

maybe even do Beast and beast too

Beast = coke
beast = Starbucks
BEAST = mickey d's

Jugdish said...

Bengals are a decent suicide pick. I dont like division games for suicide picks, but they're at home and the browns suck

El Padrino said...

what's funny is mcd cuts in sbux bottom line with it's fancy mc cafe menu that bolstered sales in 2011 yet it's still a machine

Mize said...

I'm not gonna be the crazy guy that trusts the Bungles

El Padrino said...

"I'm not gonna be the crazy guy that trusts the Bungles"

Jugdish said...

JJ watts from the texans learned the dolphins snap count from watching hard knocks...funny

tem said...

lions won didn't they?

Keef said...

I''m to the point where I can't follow it anymore because it seems like over 50% of the fights they promote don't happen




Seems like you're following it

tem said...

i was until i got to that point.

tem said...

if there was news after i posted that i didn't see it. because i was at the point where i stopped following it.

tem said...

but news before that point i saw.

i think it is fairly self explanatory.

Keef said...

I'm getting a physical in 45 minutes. Time to lube up

Jugdish said...

lions won didn't they?

barely

tem said...

still counts

tem said...

a lot of people trusted NO. that sucked for them.

Keef said...

Maybe jug's suicide pool doesn't count "barely" wins.

tem said...

i'm SAS he is in a suicide pool. i figured he'd take it slow and get into an cut yourself pool or a stub your toe pool.

he went straight to suicide.

Jugdish said...

They count barely wins. Thought lions were a safer pick than that

Jugdish said...

he went straight to suicide.


Im married now, suicide seemed like the way to go

El Padrino said...

270 bucks for the new lebrons

cmon bro

yo starbury might be crazy but his shoe line or deal with And1 was brilliant, kids in the hood that look up to these knuckleheads cant afford the goods his $15 sneaker was genius

Jugdish said...

Even firemen trapped in a suit can afford them


Keef said...

Pretty sure Nike isn't marketing to kids in the hood

tem said...

sure they are

tem said...

they market to everyone. nike is a beast of some kind.

i am unsure of the capitalization of beast that nike deserves.

El Padrino said...

"Pretty sure Nike isn't marketing to kids in the hood"

and im the dumb one

Keef said...

If Nike was marketing to kids in the hood for this shoe, it wouldn't be $270. Cmon bro. Nike wants people who have money because they'll buy more shit.

Keef said...

read a book

Keef said...

I just got an email and the subject line was "Manager position CareerBuilder‏"

First line of email says "Position: Package Handler"



I think that was meant for LP

Jugdish said...

I think that was meant for LP



I can only do that in nyc, i told you that!

/Lp

Keef said...

My friends call me a "package handler trapped in a suit"

Jugdish said...

Can you forward me that email?

El Padrino said...

"If Nike was marketing to kids in the hood for this shoe, it wouldn't be $270. Cmon bro. Nike wants people who have money because they'll buy more shit."

Lebron plays basketball.

black kids from the hood love basketball

The End.

El Padrino said...

how do you explain "kids from the projects" rocking Jordans?

El Padrino said...

have you even been exposed to a hood? like do you know what one is or what a kid from the hood is like?

El Padrino said...

read two books

El Padrino said...

oh wait lemme guess

your saying dumb shit to bait me

El Padrino said...

you win then

Mize said...

"and im the dumb one"


Thinking Nike marketing the new Brons to people in the hood is like saying Fendi markets to people in the hood.

El Padrino said...

ever hear the term
"nigger rich"

El Padrino said...

nike aint holding up a sign in queensboro projects advertising this new shoe but indirectly because kids look up to basketball players the most popular basketball shoe is indirectly marketed to kids in the hood who cant afford them

like Jordans

Keef said...

how do you explain "kids from the projects" rocking Jordans?



Just because they have them doesn't mean that Nike is marketing those shoes to them. Cmon, bro. Why would Nike market a $200-$300 shoe to people who have no money, as opposed to marketing them to people who have money who can buy other merchandise in addition to the shoes?

Keef said...

nike aint holding up a sign in queensboro projects advertising this new shoe but indirectly because kids look up to basketball players the most popular basketball shoe is indirectly marketed to kids in the hood who cant afford them



So they're not marketing to people in the hood. Got it.

Keef said...

your saying dumb shit to bait me



Nope

Keef said...

I'm not saying Nike doesn't ever market to people in the hood. But for a $270 shoe, they're not marketing to those people

Mize said...

"how do you explain "kids from the projects" rocking Jordans?"


You ever heard of thieves and hustlers?

Keef said...

according to LP, you can only have an item if that company is marketing to you

Jugdish said...

SP picks bucs over giants

Keef said...

Philly favored over the ravens? Stop it

tem said...

philly gets points for INTs vick throws now, so they are favored.

tem said...

if he threw 4 against the browns he'll throw 10 against the ravens.

tem said...

people from the hood have $300.

it might be all of their disposable income, but they have it and they spend it on shoes.

tem said...

if lebron is hocking them they are marketing them to people who like lebron.

some people from the hood like lebron.

tem said...

"according to LP, you can only have an item if that company is marketing to you"

according to keith companies only market to people who have more than enough disposable income to afford their product.

tem said...

i doubt people from the hood is the core demographic, but they clearly market to them.

hell you think rich kid identifies with some of those ads more than the kid from the hood?

the ads where they play basketball on the streets of NY. kid from upper arlington has never played on that kind of court.

kid from upper arlington doesn't even know basketball nets came in a metal version. all he knows is indoor and nylon nets.

tem said...

rich kids don't identify with the court in this ad.

ad

Keef said...

rich kids don't identify with the court in this ad.



an indoor court with nylon nets?

Keef said...

i doubt people from the hood is the core demographic, but they clearly market to them.
