from the windows to the wall

ESPN the magazine has chosen the T-wolves as the #3 team in the west.  Obviously that was before K-love got hurt.  But still it begs the question, i don't think the timberwolves are the 3rd best team in the west (ahead of the lakers by the way) even with a healthy Kevin Love and a healthy Ricky Rubio.  I think they'll be a playoff team, maybe a 6 seed or so, I could even see them sneaking up to be a 4 or a 5.  But they aren't top 3.

Sometimes I think predictions like that are just horseshit that people throw out there. Obviously it makes more news if they make some bold prediction, than if it was just some plain and simple prediction.  So they get publicity.  Then on the off chance that their prediction comes true, they get more publicity and credibility because they "predicted" it.  I call this the "simmonsification" of american sports. It's something that El Tardo perfected.  It can also be called the "el padrino effect"...remember a broken watch is right twice a day.

Now starts the busy season for Blue.  Budget creation and year end prep and fun stuff like that.  Can't wait for TCS.  Blue hasn't fired anyone in quite some time, but he gets to next Wednesday.  It's more of a layoff, but either way, the axe gets to come out.

Ozzie Guillen was fired.  I guess he can talk about Castro all he wants now.  Maybe Castro will hire him to coach the Cuban national team. 

tOSU has been busy on the scheduling front.  First the deal with the sisters of the poor (TCU), and now with the most entertaining team in college football.  Of course Urb won't be there anymore when they start playing either of those teams, so it's pointless for him to comment.

Obama won 2 of the 3 debates, so I guesss he wins the presidency.

Heard this stat the other day.  Over the last 35 years in major league baseball, 14 teams have won game 6 at home to force a game 7 (now 15).  Of those 15 teams, all of them went on to win game 7 at home...except one...

wait for it...

EP knows what's coming....

Carlos Beltran knows what's coming...

if you guessed the 2006 METS, then you'd be correct.  They're the only team in the last 35 years to lose a game 7 at home after winning game 6 at home to force game 7.

Geno Auriemma says they should lower the rim for women because they can't shoot or make layups. That's hilarity

Best part, the guys on ATH yesterday were all like "Yeah, that's not really a bad idea".

One of the guys, I think it was Israel Gutierrea, calls womens basketball "Turnovers and Two-footers". Thought that was hilarity.

"ESPN the magazine has chosen the T-wolves as the #3 team in the west."


::wolves basketball::

no use trying to guess what they'd finish with better health, but it sure as shit wouldn't be #3 (also, as it is the Wolves, might as well come up with hypotheticals where the sky is red, or kod is tall)


I think they'll fight hard for #8, slightly biased as a fan, I think they'll just squeak by into #8.



kod said...

I don't think Rubio is going to play much, at all

if/when he does, it is not going to be a big gain to the team, not this year


and again, Love wanted that extra year, and Wolves repeatedly said no...dum, dum, dum

kod said...

but, at least the Wolves are great at drawing quality free agents, and who wouldn't want to live in Mpls over the winter?

ok, I'm getting a little bitter here, exhale

Mize said...

"blank stare"


Gutierrez. I'm sure fixing the typo does not eliminate the blank stare.

Mize said...

"but, at least the Wolves are great at drawing quality free agents, and who wouldn't want to live in Mpls over the winter?"

At least these 2 goofballs seemed to have a little fun.

Interesting. I'd rather watch 2 presidential candidates debate one another for 2 hours than any movie.

Mize said...

I like to laugh at people that are being dead serious. Too much unintentional comedy.

Jugdish said...

I know I posted it the other day, but this sums up all three debates in 8 seconds.

Jugdish said...

obviously i chose the Bears Lions game over the debate the other night, but i watched the first two debates.

High school boys in a California town overlooking San Francisco Bay started a "Fantasy Slut League" targeting girls, school officials said Tuesday.
Piedmont High School Principal Rich Kitchens said in a letter to parents last week that boys organized "a 'Fantasy Slut League' in which our female students (unbeknownst to most of them) are drafted as part of the league," according to CNN affiliate KGO.
"Male students earn points for documented engagement in sexual activities with female students," the principal wrote, according to KGO. "Participation often involved pressure/manipulation by older students that included alcohol to impair judgment/control and social demands to be popular."

"she better run that iron across my suits"

nah, he uses the korean dry cleaner

Keef said...

but the dry cleaner charges too much.

BLUE said...

no, he just hates going there.

if he had the delivery/pick-up one, that would be too much

Aitch said...

Did LP get fired?

BLUE said...

i remember because we told him about the new dryers that do the dry clean thing, and he bitched about having to press all his shit by hand

Keef said...

and he bitched about having to press all his shit by hand



But then he remembered that there is a women* in the house that should be doing it anyway

the zeke comments from earlier were because he lives in Denver now

Mize said...

Well fuck. I gotta quit smoking pretty soon now. Health insurance plan has a $500 surcharge for tobacco use starting in 2013. Bonus for entering the smoking cessation program via Sysco though, $100 in coinsurance payments, and no-cost quit smoking prescriptions.

That's what I'm saying.

Jugdish said...

how much is a pack of cigarettes now roughly?

Keef said...

buy cigs from kod. He hoards them in his basement.

Mize said...

And Sysco's going to give insurance money "bonuses" for maintaining a healthier lifestyle and a healthy weight.

Good shit.

BLUE said...

don't tell them you smoke

Jugdish said...

Pyramids are ~$5.40 a pack, brand names like Camels & Marlboros are $7.40 to $8.50

Mize said...

I'm only smoking 6 cigarettes a day for the past few months. It shouldn't be difficult to quit.

Keef said...

jesus

Keef said...

If it's anything like here, it's just money they give you that goes towards health care copays, deductibles, prescriptions, etc. So it's more of a reimbursement thing than just sending bonus money

Jugdish said...

you'll also free up ~5.40 every few days too. use that on the tables in vegas

Keef said...

tables



I'm here

"If it's anything like here, it's just money they give you that goes towards health care copays, deductibles, prescriptions, etc. So it's more of a reimbursement thing than just sending bonus money"


So, free money. Got it.

Mize said...

By the by, it gets deposited into a separate account.

Keef said...

Right. A flex spending account. So you can only use it for health care reimbursement. And whatever you don't use by the end of the year goes away

Keef said...

Can I use it to go buy cigarettes?

/mize

Jugdish said...

these nicotine patches taste like shit

/mize

Mize said...

"Right. A flex spending account. So you can only use it for health care reimbursement. And whatever you don't use by the end of the year goes away"


Wrong. It's not a flex spending account that holds funds until the end of the year. The FSA plan isn't nearly as good for me as the PPO plan. Yes, the accrued money can only be used on medical benefits, but it also rolls over annually. It isn't the same thing. You have to be enrolled in the FSA plan to have the FSA. The Sysco Health Care Account is available to all Sysco employees if they choose.

Mize said...

"these nicotine patches taste like shit"

No kidding

Keef said...

so about that week 6 question from earlier...

Mize said...

Can't you check for yourself?

Jugdish said...

People who have driven between San Antonio and Austin can atest to the traffic -- it can be bumper to bumper. In addition to long haul truckers headed from the border to the interior of the U.S. and back, there are also soccer moms hopping on and off to get to Walmart and thousands of suburban commuters headed into the office.


those soccer moms don't need to be on the roads, they need to be at home cooking so their man has a warm mean when he gets home

/Lp

Keef said...

Can't you check for yourself?




I left my xbox at home today

Keef said...

I'm hoping for a warm mean tonight
