Idol and stuff...

I left work just as that Manti Te'o story started to break and I didn't listen to any news after leaving work, so I'm hearing some of the details this morning. My initial thought was it was very similar to the Mize/Deluxe thing, but on a much larger scale. The similarities are there, fake twitter account for her, fake fantasy teams for Deluxe. I just wish Chris Farley was still alive so he could ask Manti this. Maybe Manti was using this site.

I watched American Idol last night and so far it seemed more about the judges than the contestants. Randy Jackson is still Randy Jackson and I think about this when I hear his name. Keith Urban adds pretty much nothing to the show (NS), but that's pretty typical for guys named Keith (S). I'm also not buying the tension between Mariah Carey and Nikki Ménage*. Ménage* looks like a clown. If they are going to switch up the judges evey year, I think I'm for that. If they wanted to add a country singer to the panel, they should have went after Brad Paisley. Maybe they did, I don't know. They had the tryouts in NYC. It seemed like most of the singers thought they were the best, but they really weren't.

I knew that a long time ago! /women everywhere

After seeing this, I have no problem with the blood bank calling me asking for donations.

Today is my Friday...4 day weekend. Suite! Thanks MLK!

Go!

Something happened with Marshall a while back though. We used to be dudes, and then I think I poked him



gross

Keef said...

TOSU was down 28-7 in the third quarter last night and rallied for a 42-35 win at northwestern

Jugdish said...

mize...i looked for the roku last night, but haven't found it yet. Give me one more night to look around, I don't think I got rid of it. I need to check some boxes in the garage too.

Keef said...

Manti Te'o is an anagram for "not an item"

Keef said...

I so saw someone post that on FB. But now that I look at it, that's wrong

Keef said...

Too many Ns

Keef said...

Not a item

Jugdish said...

i have no motivation at work today

Jorts couldn't save us! said...

best tweet I saw last night:

"Manti Teo's girlfriend actually exists; she's just spending more time with Urban Meyer's family"

tem said...

i didn't even know he had a girlfriend. i had never heard the story in the first place.

the fact that it was a hoax has no effect on me. i just don't care at all.

Jugdish said...

i didn't even know he had a girlfriend. i had never heard the story in the first place.


^^^^^

tem said...

but i was wondering this...


if the european colonists who came over to american* and colonized this place brought disease with them that killed lots of native americans why didn't the natives have some diseases that killed the colonists?

i get that the diseases were new to the natives, but shouldn't they have had some diseases that they were used to that would have killed the colonists?

tem said...

good point. i think this whole colonist stuff is a conspiracy. /florida A&U (or whatever school) professor

tem said...

and on subway i am surprised people haven't complained more about the 6 inch subs not being 6 inches. they hand cut them and don't measure. sometimes you get the big half sometimes you get the small half, but they never cut it perfectly down the middle.

goddamn computer games

tem said...

if the guy was getting his work done then why would the developer care how he did it?

Jugdish said...

he seems to have more of a personality than urban...plus blake shelton is already taken by the voice

tem said...

brad paisley is going to take over for blake shelton on the voice after this season. terribly kept secret.

tem said...

after this upcoming season i should say. it starts in march or something.

El Padrino said...

jug are mariah carey's tits out on that show

please advice

Jugdish said...

they are in the neighborhood

Tyler said...

Where/what is the list of criteria for LP's Fine Dining Experience™? I can't find it in a post and digging through comments is insane. Anyone got that laying around somewhere?

Jugdish said...

not too revealing yesterday, but im sure they'll be there

Tyler said...

Also; thanks for the hatching day wishes Mize.

tem said...

"I can't find it in a post and digging through comments is insane. Anyone got that laying around somewhere?"

i suspect keith does. or he remembers it in full.

he has like a photographic memory of this shit. or takes good notes.

Jugdish said...

this manti story is already getting too much coverage

Tyler said...

I was going to respond to your comment on Facebook about the Sushi joint, but I wanted to answer all of his questions.

Tyler said...

Not just the ambiance one, which is about a B.

Tyler said...

24-hour news cycle.

Meiz said...

Idol was awful last night. I had to turn it off.


Also, thanks for looking for your Roku, Jug. I'll pay you for shipping if you find it.

Jorts couldn't save us! said...

"this manti story is already getting too much coverage"

it's huge if manti was part of the hoax. will continue to be a huge story of speculation until manti talks

tem said...

maybe it explains why he played so poorly.

tem said...

"until manti talks"

didn't he release a statement already?

Keef said...

Which Hall of Famer is the all-time leader in extra-inning home runs?

somethign about he was tricked and is embarassed and something else?

"A U.S. Navy minesweeper has run aground on a reef in the Sulu Sea in the Philippines."


they hired that Costa cruise ship driver to drive apparently.

tem said...

one of us should take testosterone supplements and report back on the results.

Keef said...

it's huge if manti was part of the hoax.


Honestly, I don't see why it's such a yahuge story. OK, so he tricked some people into thinking he had a fake gf. People on the radio are acting like this is going to effect* where he's drafted. Huh?

Keef said...

Umm...Mays



congrats

tem said...

yay. that is probably the only one i will ever get.

tem said...

"OK, so he tricked some people into thinking he had a fake gf. "

or was he tricked by a girl and it was real to him?

BLUE said...

"i get that the diseases were new to the natives, but shouldn't they have had some diseases that they were used to that would have killed the colonists?"

i think they did, like malaria and other stuff

Meiz said...

Or it was all big cover up to hide the fact that he's gay, and it's completely spiraled out of control, and instead of just coming out in a "normal" kind of way, he's forced to to it on National tv.

Keef said...

or was he tricked by a girl and it was real to him?



Maybe it was this. But either way, IMO, it's not that big of a deal

BLUE said...

i did not know of the manti story either.

nor did i care


now i hear all this "catfish" stuff and still don't care enough to google and find out the real deal

tem said...

"Or it was all big cover up to hide the fact that he's gay"

when i saw the headline that said he had a fake gf i assumed he was gay.

then i listened to the story and said to myself "this is a fucking soap opera" and turned on Big Bang Theory.

El Padrino said...

Which Hall of Famer is the all-time leader in extra-inning home runs?

Reggie Jackson

Keef said...

The guys on Big Bang Theory think that tem is a nerd

Keef said...

Reggie Jackson



Hilarity. Fucking LP

El Padrino said...

oh damn, just caught up

Meiz said...

"Maybe it was this. But either way, IMO, it's not that big of a deal"


Not that big of a deal? Going on national tv & telling lies about a fake girlfriend that allegedly died from leukemia is kind of a big deal. AND there were 4 different dates of this alleged death, and you don't even go to your dead girlfriend's funeral? This is some shit right here.

Meiz said...

Regardless, Nev Schulman is on the case for MTV, and they don't have any attachment to Te'o? They're gonna get to the bottom of this if Te'o doesn't start talking soon.

El Padrino said...

T'eo story is huge

unsure how two college football fans like tem and blue didnt know he had a gf and grandma die on the same day it was at the forefront of the ND season

the fact that the chick never existed and that a pal said t'eo was involved for "publicity" is a major story

Keef said...

How did him talking about a fake gf affect anything, football-wise?

Jugdish said...

its not a big deal because it doesn't really affect anyone...just makes him look stupid

El Padrino said...

T'eo lying to university, said got a phone call then told coaches two days before title game (yes that is why he played poorly) AD standing by T'eo saying he was deceived


dude is on tape saying he met her

lies

going to end badly, will certainly tarnish his draft stock

Keef said...

Yeah, the story has drama & shit, but that's for the woman*. In the grand scheme of things, this guy plays football, and this story has no impact on football.

tem said...

"it was at the forefront of the ND season"

that's how. until this year ND hadn't been relevant in college football for like a decade.

Jugdish said...

dude is on tape saying he met her


they still use tapes?

tem said...

you can meet online.

Keef said...

will certainly tarnish his draft stock



C'mon bro.

El Padrino said...

its not a big deal because it doesn't really affect anyone...

it affects the people who believed him, the fucking Pep Rally where he was crying? cmon that is sick

cmon man this is a National story not a sports story

he betrayed the people of ND and the college football community

El Padrino said...

"will certainly tarnish his draft stock



C'mon bro."

bet cash, dude was in on this
he is a pshyco

Jugdish said...

cmon man this is a National story not a sports story


its a lame story...but lance armstrong is grateful

Keef said...

fucking pshyco

El Padrino said...

"you can meet online."

never face timed or skyped

never saw the chick


meanwhile his dad is out here lying too saying they met in 2009

nigga please

tem said...

"bet cash, dude was in on this
he is a pshyco"

$1,000?

Jugdish said...

bet cash, dude was in on this



steve was dupped on this once, much like the ND community has been dupped

Keef said...

its a lame story...



jug knows

tem said...

"but lance armstrong is grateful"

is he? today is supposed to be his day. all about lance day and it won't be. he is probably mega pissed.

Jugdish said...

kiper had him ranked 8th on his initial board before the story broke...we'll see where he gets drafted.

Meiz said...

"unsure how two college football fans like tem and blue didnt know he had a gf and grandma die on the same day it was at the forefront of the ND season"

BUT there are/were reports from real news sources that have her death on the same day, the day after, 3 days after, and 4 days after his grandma died. It's so sloppy.

Jugdish said...

is he? today is supposed to be his day. all about lance day and it won't be. he is probably mega pissed.


he is in hawaii now, he is good. plus the second half of the interview airs tonight. i haven't seen the first half

tem said...

"kiper had him ranked 8th on his initial board before the story broke"

maybe the 8th LB, but he can't possibly have him 8th overall.

Jugdish said...

its funny to me that people are getting paid to research this, when, at the end of the day it'll prove what we already know...he is a dumb kid

Keef said...

BUT there are/were reports from real news sources that have her death on the same day, the day after, 3 days after, and 4 days after his grandma died. It's so sloppy.



That's the news sources' faults for not doing any fact checking.

tem said...

"BUT there are/were reports from real news sources that have her death on the same day, the day after, 3 days after, and 4 days after his grandma died. It's so sloppy"

fuck the news. they butchered the shit out of the Conn shooting facts. they probably butchered the shit out of the day this real girl fake died. or the fake girl fake died.

Keef said...

fucking Deadspin

Meiz said...

"never face timed or skyped

never saw the chick"


This. Which is crazier than cat shit in 2012.

tem said...

lebron is going to score more than kareem.

Jugdish said...

maybe the 8th LB, but he can't possibly have him 8th overall.


has him going 8th to thr bills

Keef said...

He'll be drafted in top 15

Keef said...

Unless he offs hisself between now & the draft

Meiz said...

"He'll be drafted in top 15"


I figured he was a 2nd round guy. He's gonna stink in the NFL

El Padrino said...

what i want to know is he says she died right, not one media member decided to talk to the family for a quote?

or even fact check?

or did the "hoaxer" provide that too?

this is a fine woven web my friends

El Padrino said...

"He'll be drafted in top 15"

if he's behind this hoax he totally drops out of the first round


tem said...

"He'll be drafted in top 15"

i'll take this bet. no way he goes top 15.

Keef said...

The Deadspin writer guy was on DP this morning. He said that Deadspin got an email from someone who said the story was fishy. So he started by googling the chick's name, and every link that came up was about her being Teo's gf. There wasn't one link about her being a student at Stanford, no social media links, nothing else

Keef said...

i'll take this bet. no way he goes top 15.



Sure, why not

tem said...

Deadspin has some good investigative reporters.

2nd only to yahoo! news people.

Keef said...

if he's behind this hoax he totally drops out of the first round



You could write for the national media

Meiz said...

"2nd only to yahoo! news people."

TMZ has got to be the #1 most terrifying investgative reporters. If they start coming around you, it's game over.

Jugdish said...

You could write for the national media



he did...the stache

Keef said...

I don't know what's funnier. This addition to the story, or the picture from this link with the trail of spit going all the way down his chest.

tem said...

has anyone investigated to see if this "grandmother" was a real person?

Keef said...

wait, Arod is banging Torrie Wilson? WFT?

tem said...

what is a torrie wilson? is that the receiver for the ravens?

Jugdish said...

In his first NFL Mock draft for 2013, azcentral sports' Bob McManaman has Te'o going No. 15 to the New Orleans Saints

Keef said...

what is a torrie wilson? is that the receiver for the ravens?


stop it

El Padrino said...

jesus tem what planet do you live on?

no fucking news cysles in temhio?

Meiz said...

"what is a torrie wilson? is that the receiver for the ravens?"

Stop.

Meiz said...

How are the Badgers doing this season?

Keef said...

#6

Keef said...

as soon as tem plays, we'll move to week 6

Keef said...

although I don't understand how Sconnie is #6, considering they got waxed by Boise

El Padrino said...

i was thinking

who names thier kid Dennis

what a dopey name

El Padrino said...

napolean T'eo

Meiz said...

"#6"

Sweet. I may jump back in tonight.

Keef said...

Sweet. I may jump back in tonight.



You prefer they be unranked?

Meiz said...

Dont care

Meiz said...

It's just wasting time between work & sleep

Meiz said...

I should look into a 2nd job soonish.

Keef said...

I finally found a near unstoppable play on offense last night

Keef said...

I should look into a 2nd job soonish.



Don't do it

Meiz said...

I should see if one of the Caedarburg coffee houses needs part time help. Then I can be part-time barista rivals with my buddy EJ.

Meiz said...

"Don't do it"

These bills aren't paying themselves

Keef said...

didn't you save up any money when you didn't have rent for 2 years?

Keef said...

rent or utilities or groceries

Meiz said...

"didn't you save up any money when you didn't have rent for 2 years?"


That money does not exist. It is not to be frivolously blown.

I refuse to believe you're that bad with money.

Jugdish said...

update on cmjug wanting to test the budget to see if she can stay home when kids come...jug showed her the bills/budget spreadsheet as if it were just my salary and she backed off (for now).

side note...if she could come up with a way to supplement the lost income, like doing photography on the side (which she is really good at) we could revisit the idea of her staying home.

Keef said...

Nude?

El Padrino said...

"I finally found a near unstoppable play on offense last night"

annexation of Puerto Rico

Jugdish said...

ha...no, like wedding and family pics...fully clothed

El Padrino said...

"doing photography on the side (which she is really good at) "

i'm a great subject if you'd like i can pose for cmjug

Jugdish said...

like this?

Keef said...

annexation of Puerto Rico



That would be suite if you could run that on Xbox

El Padrino said...

Twins right 48 zero read?

Keef said...

I'm not going to expose my secret

Meiz said...

I have a play that's unstoppable, too. Just haven't had the chance to run it against you. It's a situational play.

Meiz said...

there. I just transferred almost all that money into my savings account. Out of sight, out of mind.

Meiz said...

I should see if my CU has some kind of high yield account I can put that shiz into

Keef said...

You should of* taken that cash money to vegas and wagered it on NBA.

Meiz said...

And then I lose it and have to spend 2 more years living at my parents' house. No thanks.

Keef said...

Weren't you winning your NBA bets?

Meiz said...

I hit them all on Saturday and went 1/3 on Sunday, if I remove cinnamon.

Meiz said...

My boss does work like a cop. Taking all these extra steps to waste time, jotting down useless notes, sending emails that don't need to be sent, etc...I have a strong distaste for inefficiency at work.

This is some shit that affects < than 10 people in the world


**fized

BLUE said...

he'll still get drafted high

he'll be a shitty LB in the NFL

he's maybe a decent weakside LB, but he's too small to play in the middle.

BLUE said...

NFL coaches don't give a shit if a guy makes up a story about a fake GF.

they care about, how fast is his 40 time, and can he tackle.

BLUE said...

can he make my team better


or else ray lewis wouldn't still be in the NFL

BLUE said...

or michael vick

or DJ Williams

or Javon Beltcher

Meiz said...

The NFL's got nothing to do with this whackjob's story

Keef said...

too soon

Keef said...

The only reason this is a yahuge story is because it's Notre Dame

Meiz said...

Sure. That's fine with me.

El Padrino said...

exactly

tem said...

"no fucking news cysles in temhio?"

we do not have news cysles. we don't even know what cysles are.

BLUE said...

torri hunter?

Keef said...

torii

BLUE said...

i didn't know who a torrie wilson was either

BLUE said...

i have a play that's almost unstoppable in NCAA given the right coverage...i just have to be smart enuff to pick the right reciever to throw the ball to



Keef said...

i just have to be smart enuff to pick the right reciever to throw the ball to



I was being stupid about that last night when I first found the play. I was throwing to guys that I couldn't see on the screen and got picked 3 times. Once I stopped doing that in the 2nd half, they couldn't stop the play

tem said...

"I finally found a near unstoppable play on offense last night"


screen pass?

Keef said...

fuck off

El Padrino said...

blue is slipping

tem said...

"And then I lose it and have to spend 2 more years living at my parents' house. No thanks."

if it is just going to sit in your savings account and you aren't spending it then not having it seemingly wouldn't prevent you from moving out.

you didn't need to spend it to move out, so whether or not you had it is irrevelant to moving out.

tem said...

"they care about, how fast is his 40 time, and can he tackle."


it is slow.

and he can't tackle good players.

tem said...

i still don't know who this torrie whatever is.

tem said...

i'll play x-box today.

Keef said...

here, tem

Keef said...

mize, you gonna come down to Tempe for the Sconnie game?

Keef said...

i'll get your ticket to the game

Keef said...

you can use the interest you earn from your savings to buy the plane ticket

Keef said...

and get a hotel room

Meiz said...

"you didn't need to spend it to move out, so whether or not you had it is irrevelant to moving out."


Sure I did. I needed a couple thousand for rent & security deposit, and various other household things. Regardless, I had about $150 to my name when I moved in with my parents 2 years ago. Now I have some money in case I need it. And I'm still not positive I can afford to live without a 2nd job yet. So, in your face.

tem said...

you didn't need whatever you just moved to your savings account.

so you could have bet that on NBA and been in the same place you are now even if you lost.

tem said...

i guess same place aside from not having it in the savings account.

but you would have still been able to move which is my point.

Meiz said...

"you didn't need whatever you just moved to your savings account."

I'll play the hypothetical game, too.

Yes, I do need it.

Meiz said...

"but you would have still been able to move which is my point."

Sometimes you choose to make bad points.

Keef said...

we all do

Meiz said...

"mize, you gonna come down to Tempe for the Sconnie game?"


I'll start checking. Not sure if I want to swing both that and Summit 4.

tem said...

it isn't a bad point.

you moved without the use of those funds.

ipso facto you didn't need them to move.

Keef said...

tem is bagging

Meiz said...

Tem wants me to stay broke. Got it. Fuck America.

Meiz said...

"tem is bagging"

Yes.

tem said...

"Yes, I do need it."

do is present tense. you are saying you need it now.

i am saying you didn't need it to move. past tense.

and seeing as you moved and didn't spend it i have pretty good evidence that you didn't need it to move.

Meiz said...

Anywho, what's the deal with people that put on their Out Of Office when they're on lunch? Weirdos.

Meiz said...

"and seeing as you moved and didn't spend it i have pretty good evidence that you didn't need it to move."

I needed it to move

Keef said...

I've nerve* seen someone use out of office when there* at lunch

tem said...

"I needed it to move"

having it made you feel better. but you didn't need it.

tem said...

you, like so many women, are confusing need with want.

you wanted it.

you didn't need it.

Meiz said...

"having it made you feel better. but you didn't need it."

No, I'm telling you I needed it. I'm just not telling you why I needed it because you don't need to know.

Keef said...

he had to buy a whore to break in the new apt

Meiz said...

12 whores

Meiz said...

They're my roommates

Keef said...

oh nice

Jugdish said...

Meiz said...

"I've nerve* seen someone use out of office when there* at lunch"


Maybe it's a trucking industry thing.

Meiz said...

I found out yesterday, the single biggest pain in my ass here got fired on Friday. Good guy, but terrible at his job, and fucked up my day every single day. Glad he's gone, yet I feel bad for him. Oh well.

Meiz said...

And he had a very prominent role here.
