tem said...

Meiz said...

Not really. I think it's something else now.

Meiz said...

That David guy branched off on his own or something.

Meiz said...

I think he was the one that's a recovering basehead.

Keef said...

whatta gotta stalking?

Meiz said...

Look at Captain Memory calling me a stalker for remembering something.

Keef said...

I have no idea who David is.

Meiz said...

The dude that ran Sparty & Friends

BLUE said...

"Baseball's a completely different monster than NFL or NBA. You know this. It's far more intricate"


this is ridiculous

BLUE said...

baseball is "go out there and hit", "go throw strikes", "catch the ball"

Meiz said...

So is your face

Meiz said...

I will not feed the troll. Good bye.

Keef said...

The dude that ran Sparty & Friends



Did anyone else here besides you know that before today?

tem said...

don't care. he probably runs a better blog than we do.

our posts are dog shit.

Keef said...

If you like his posts so much, why don't you just go with him!

Meiz said...

"Did anyone else here besides you know that before today?"

I'm sure not. I used to be a frequent visitor over there back in like '08.

Meiz said...

And at The Rookies and The Phoenix Pub. Those were the places the funny deadspin people started when deadspin decided to not be funny any more.

tem said...

"If you like his posts so much, why don't you just go with him!"

i'm going to check him out and get back to you.

Keef said...

Keef said...

I was rubbing salt in TP's wound via text last night during the game

Meiz said...

Anyway, I guess the state of PA is suing the NCAA, hey?

Meiz said...

Or did I dream that?

Keef said...

yeah that's kind of weird

Meiz said...

Welp, just got told my hours are changing, and I'm getting more responsibility. I'll be in charge of advance receiving our custom cut steaks.

BLUE said...

haha

BLUE said...

congrats on the job change

too bad you know nothing about steak

Meiz said...

I don't need to know anything about them.

Besides, I know more than enough about stupid steaks.

Meiz said...

New hours oven me up to potential overtime, too.

BLUE said...

does it oven you up to playing more NCAA

Beth said...

So, what have I missed?

Keef said...

Keef said...

Besides, I know more than enough about stupid steaks

Meiz said...

Gotta get my smaller TV into the apt to check if there's some semblance of tv hooked up in there.

Meiz said...

Had a couple friends tell me when I was in the last place, they'd never paid a dime for cable tv

Jorts couldn't save us! said...

BLUE said...

Keef said...

This place is reply on the rise

Keef said...

Meiz said...

Why are we observing MLK Day a week after his birthday? Barack Obama doesn't care about black people.

Meiz said...

"probably not early in the morning, but maybe at 8am"

Nope. Country roads, my man. Country roads.

Keef said...

Meiz said...

Pizza places that don't make their own dough annoy me.

BLUE said...

"Pizza places that don't make their own dough annoy me."

like?

BLUE said...

ok EP, now meiz is a pizza snob too?

Meiz said...

"like?"

We have customers that buy frozen premade crusts from us. It's just cheap & lazy, but they'll still charge premium prices for their pies.

Keef said...

Today, only 9% of checking accounts in the U.S. are free, compared to 76% in 2009.

Keef said...

What time is it in Gilbert?



An hour behind the 'burg

Keef said...

them's fightin words.

Meiz said...

"Today, only 9% of checking accounts in the U.S. are free, compared to 76% in 2009."

wow. I'd never pay to have a checking account.

Keef said...

Who are the five most recent players to reach 3000 hits without winning a batting title?

Keef said...

Today's MLB birthdays...
Ted Lilly
Don McMahon
George Selkirk
Tito Fuentes

Meiz said...

"Who are the five most recent players to reach 3000 hits without winning a batting title?"

Robin Yount

Meiz said...

Jeff Bagwell
Craig Biggio

Meiz said...

Rickey Henderson

Meiz said...

Cal Ripken

Meiz said...

I'm guessing

Meiz said...

Did Jeter ever win a batting title?

Keef said...

Robin Yount



No

BLUE said...

eddie murray

Keef said...

Jeff Bagwell - Nowhere near 3000 hits
Craig Biggio - yes

Keef said...

Rickey Henderson - Yes

Keef said...

Cal Ripken - Yes

Keef said...

Did Jeter ever win a batting title?


No

Keef said...

1 more

BLUE said...

winfield?

Keef said...

eddie murray

No

Keef said...

winfield?



More recent

BLUE said...

palmeiro

BLUE said...

fucking liar

Keef said...

palmeiro



bingo

Meiz said...

I didn't realize Palmeiro had 3000 hits. Never even came to mind.

BLUE said...

his 3k hits are tainted

BLUE said...

yeah he's a 3k 500 HR guy

who won't get into the HoF

BLUE said...

still blows my mind that Bonds hit 760 HRs and didn't get to 3k hits

BLUE said...

and i would consider him a pretty good hitter

better than palmeiro and murray and winfield guys who all got to 3k

Keef said...

still blows my mind that Bonds hit 760 HRs and didn't get to 3k hits



He walked too much

BLUE said...

"He walked too much"

very true

BLUE said...

also didn't play as many years as those other guys

came up 65 hits short of 3k

Keef said...

He played 300 fewer games than Aaron and had 800 fewer hits, but had 1100 more walks

BLUE said...

A-aron

Meiz said...

This fuckin' guy better be dead or in jail.

WHERE'S MY GODDAMN PLAYOFF PREVIEW?

BLUE said...

giants over the bears

EL PICKS said...

Dan Gladden made me chuckle

Certainly wasn't Tim Laudner or Bryan Harper, although Harper was a very underrated catcher, second best catcher for the Twins between 1979-2013 (i.e. my life) IMO

EL PICKS said...

"A-aron"


aitch, nicely done

Keef said...

giants over the bears



Well of course. The Bears don't even have a coach

Keef said...

I don't want to talk about it

/kod

BLUE said...

"The Bears don't even have a coach"

chip kelly

Meiz said...

Chip Kelly to the Browns

BLUE said...

chefs fired pioli

EL PICKS said...

random kod prediction


Reid will be wildly successful with the Chiefs, and will win a SB with them w/in the next 7 years


just got a feeling....

EL PICKS said...

"I'm not a one-and-done guy," O'Brien told pennlive.com on Thursday night. "I made a commitment to these players at Penn State and that's what I am going to do. I'm not gonna cut and run after one year. That's for sure."


very, very cool

BLUE said...

yeah, well if they'd have gone 2-10 and he got fired...then what

EL PICKS said...

would have said, I get it, since he didn't go 10-6

EL PICKS said...

and shoot, even Paterno is no Lovie Smith

40+ years and 0 Super Bowls, pathetic

BLUE said...

aja

I think it's a cool move by him to not leave

BLUE said...

he's got no ties to that school either

Meiz said...

One of our drivers is retiring after today, so...

Office retirement party!

Meiz said...

"I think it's a cool move by him to not leave"


He said last year that he wasn't going to leave

Keef said...

""I'm not a one-and-done guy," O'Brien told pennlive.com on Thursday night. "I made a commitment to these players at Penn State and that's what I am going to do. I'm not gonna cut and run after one year. That's for sure."


very, very cool"



He's not a one and done guy, but he sends his agent out to get feelers and he interviews with 2 teams. He didn't get offered a yob*, so he's not a one and done guy

Keef said...

Reid will be wildly successful with the Chiefs, and will win a SB with them w/in the next 7 years



Yeah I'll bet that

Meiz said...

"Yeah I'll bet that"


$1,000

Keef said...

1 point safety last night was weird

Keef said...

wall

BLUE said...

"1 point safety last night was weird"

yeah, you know it's a weird call when the ref points out that it's a weird call

Aitch said...

Donde esta El Padrino?

BLUE said...

you know i don't speak portugeuse

Meiz said...

One of my favorite things about The Life Aquatic is the deckhand playing Bowie songs on the acoustic guitar and singing them in Portuguese throughout the movie.

Wes Anderson does some dope shit in his movies.

BLUE said...

so does wes craven

EL PICKS said...

"$1,000"


too rich for my blood; but I'd go $1.000

Keef said...

Keef said...

BLUE said...

EL PICKS said...

it's not like you have to pay it off

/LP


ha! I may be pokey as hell in delivering (sorry Meiz, Keith, Aitch), but I do follow through

Meiz said...

I've been slowly migrating in the past few days. Gonna move all the boxes and such this weekend.

I'll probably actually be in there next weekend unless I can get like a Monday appointment to get internet hooked up. I'm not gonna post up in that bitch without internet.

BLUE said...

you've got 4G

EL PICKS said...

"Minneapolis Police Chief Harteau and Mayor R.T. Rybak held a news conference Friday to outline public-safety priorities for this year.

Harteau says that one of her new ideas for north Minneapolis includes having police officers get out of their squad cars and walk a beat when they have time. Rybak says the city is also going to continue its efforts to get guns off the streets.

Harteau also says she'll continue to partner with the community to prevent crime from happening"

I like the mayor and don't know the police chief, but those priorities could have been written by a 10 year old.

Why even go that far then, just say...our public safety priorities for next year are, public safety. NEXT!

Meiz said...

Forgot about that. I only have 2gb though. I don't want to blow through it.

BLUE said...

why should they get out and walk

it's cold there

Meiz said...

Mamba OUT

BLUE said...

when are tem and keith playing their game

i want to listen in

BLUE said...

EL PICKS said...

I'm glad to see Representative Jerrold Nadler lending his support to the idea that President Barack Obama should avert a debt-limit crisis by issuing large-denomination platinum coins, as permitted by 31 USC § 5112.

In case you're not familiar with this idea: In general, the Treasury Department is not allowed to just print money if it feels like it. It must defer to the Federal Reserve's control of the money supply. But there is an exception: Platinum coins may be struck with whatever specifications the Treasury secretary sees fit, including denomination.

This law was intended to allow the production of commemorative coins for collectors. But it can also be used to create large-denomination coins that Treasury can deposit with the Fed to finance payment of the government's bills, in lieu of issuing debt."



checkmate

BLUE said...

just make a bunch of coins and pay off our debt then.

problem solved

Keef said...

when are tem and keith playing their game



Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not

Keef said...

I offered to play last night. Tem said no, he had a headache

EL PICKS said...

47% popular vote for Romney


ahaha, 47%; score one for poetic justice



Meiz said...

I don't think I can use my phone as a wifi hotspot without paying extra. Does this sound right?

Meiz said...

Whatta gotta:

Plasma or LCD?

Keef said...

LED

Meiz said...

Chip Kelly to the Browns

Aitch said...

" don't think I can use my phone as a wifi hotspot without paying extra. Does this sound right?"

correct

Meiz said...

What a gyp.

Meiz said...

"LED"

I knew some asshole was going to say this.

BLUE said...

i'm going to buy LED, that's my next purchase

Meiz said...

Of course

Meiz said...

I'm not

EL PICKS said...

wow, having the on field shot running in the tiny window during commercials in the Cotton Bowl is one of the stupidist ideas I've seen in a while.

BLUE said...

Hey if it works for NASCAR

Meiz said...

For some reason, my sister keep complaining about the Galaxy S3. I fuckin love the thing.

Her boyfriend is a fucking Apple fanboy. I'm sure that has something to do with it.

Jugdish said...

My bro works for apple, I'm still going with the galaxy in a few Weeks. If he hooked me up with a discount it would be different, but that s not an option

Jugdish said...

Aggies!

Keef said...

Lance Armstrong, who has strongly denied the doping charges that led to him being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, has reportedly told associates he is considering confessing to the use of performance-enhancing drugs. 
The report cited anonymous sources, and said that 41-year-old Armstrong was considering the confession to help restore his athletic career in triathlons. 

Jugdish said...

Wall

EL PICKS said...

wow, hard to believe Hou is only up 2 here


cmon Cinci

EL PICKS said...

I'm not going to lie, I've always loved the Bengals, because of a stuffed animal


but not just any old stuffed animal, their Huddle


anyone else here collect Huddles as a kid? I wish I still had them in their original boxes, I don't think they make them anymore; may be a good collectable

EL PICKS said...

Star Tribune is reporting Webb is going to start, Ponder's elbow is still not good

EL PICKS said...

funny thing about those Vikes, what other team would be more concerned with their cornerback's status (Winfield) than their quarterback's

Keef said...

This game is fugly

Ben said...

So is your face

BLUE said...

Damnit

EL PICKS said...

nice PR add NFL


so you made the game safer by turning it into a video game only league?

EL PICKS said...

dan the man >>>>>>> ben


BLUE said...

Fuck Andy Dalton

BLUE said...

Alex Flanagan, yes please

Keef said...

That O-line sucks

Keef said...

I like Dalton but his arm strenf* is lacking

BLUE said...

Dalton looks confused, not making good quick decisions

EL PICKS said...

"Dalton looks confused, not making good quick decisions"


Ponder-esque comes to mind

Keef said...

Fucking red heads

BLUE said...

But ponder has a hot wife and an even hotter ex gf

BLUE said...

So he may be suspect at qb but he wins at life

EL PICKS said...

yes, and he won't lose today

BLUE said...

Bout fuckin time dalton

BLUE said...

yes, and he won't lose today

Because Webb will take the loss?

EL PICKS said...

fuck, Dalton is strong though, can't believe he got his arm going forward, saved them 3 points there

EL PICKS said...

"Because Webb will take the loss?"


if we lose, yes...but I guess since he's on the team, he would still "lose the game"


poor word choice there by me

EL PICKS said...

Kubiak did not read my previous comment apparently


BLUE said...

I'm kidding, I hope the vikes destroy the pack

Keef said...

Sitting on the couch watching the game. Bengals doing nothing. Cmk comes up and gives me sexy time and Cincy gets a little momentum

Keef said...

And, now they suck again

Keef said...

Fuck, twice in a row Dalton throws it when Green isn't looking

BLUE said...

I don't understand why the bengals don't run the football

Keef said...

No clue
