The Agony of these feet

Fuck the broncos. Just tackle Jacoby Jones in bounds instead of trying to knock down the pass, and the clock runs way down. maybe baltimore gets 2 shots into the Endzone...

I got to wondering out loud the last few days. Why is it that people (fans) are so emotionally involved in sports. We take great pleasure and pride in victories, and suffer such agony and dispair in losses. This was a gut wrenching loss. I heard from people who were physically sick after the game. They couldn't sleep, they just kept playing the game over and over in their minds. Why is that? I don't understand it at all. No other part of our lives (aside from real personal relationships) do we get so wrapped up in. Maybe we do and i'm just not sure. The only thing I can even remotely relate it to is death, like the Sandy Hook shooting or the Aurora Theater shooting. I remember being heartbroken in the same way, but football/sports, is just a game. Nobody loses their life, there is nothing to be heartbroken about. The truth of the matter is that had the Broncos won the SuperBowl™ this year, I would have been ecstatic, but nothing in my life would have changed. It wouldn't have had a profound impact on me as a person. Just like this loss, while gut-wrenching, it doesn't change the fact that I still get up everyday and go to work with the same people doing the same job.

Deep thoughts by Blue Handy

On to the lighter side of things...Broncos fired their DB coach...he had to see this coming right?

I watched the golden globes, and I have no idea about half the TV shows, but I want to see all the movies nominated except for Les Miserables. I saw that shit already with claire danes and liam neeson, i can't imagine the story has changed much.
The only argument I had about who won any awards was for best supporting actor in a TV show. Went to Ed Harris, who rocks, but nobody's ever seen that Game Change show, Max Greenfielf (Schmitt), from New Girl, should have won that award walking away.

I'm done with week 5 NCAA. Gotta keep the skillz fresh.

Game Change was a movie

Ed Harris played John McCain, was about the 2008 election

good movie

woody harrelson was great in that one

"Why is it that people (fans) are so emotionally involved in sports"

distraction?
because sports are fun?
because deep down we all wish we could play?

Meiz said...

I suppose I'm really only emotionally attached to baseball and maybe some golf.

Meiz said...

I think my attachment to baseball is because I see it as such a tactical battle between the two sides on every pitch. You get so ramped up to be ready for what you want to do with the next pitch, the manager sends a play to the coach, the coach sends it to the baserunner, the manager sends a sign to the hitter, the hitter settles in, prepares to make contact on the ball....And then the other side decides to waste a pitch with a neck-high fastball just to fuck with the offense. And then you do it all again. High drama shit.

BLUE said...

"distraction?
because sports are fun?"

maybe..but movies/tv are a distraction and we don't get that wrapped up in those

sports are fun to play, i get that, not sure why they're so much fun to watch...that's my question that i can't answer.

BLUE said...

"because deep down we all wish we could play?"

this may be true for guys, but what about the crazy women football fans...i don't think they wish they could play.

i would argue that some people do get wrapped up in TV shows. especially long running ones.

I got it. The only other Jackie to even be an All-Star.

Jackie Jensen?

if i missed someone posting a score then fuck it, they go to round 2 as well.

sci fi shows seem to get the most people wrapped up in them.

i guess star trek is to nerds as football/baseball is to non-nerds?

El Padrino said...

keef's a nerd

kodiac130 said...

"maybe..but movies/tv are a distraction and we don't get that wrapped up in those"



one major difference for these purposes IMO are that movies/tv are scripted and pre-determined (even reality programming isn't really "reality"). And of course non-fiction is just history


sports are truly unpredictible

Keef said...

Jackie Jensen?


cheater

Keef said...

I didn't get 23.5. I got 17.5

Meiz said...

"cheater"

I looked at a list of Jackies.

kodiac130 said...

my biggest emotional attachment is to the NFL

it's the only league where I get down from a loss, although I'm much better than when I was younger, Vikes loss would completely ruin my entire Sunday.

Meiz said...

i don't care if you said later your score was different. i go with what you said 1st.

tem said...

CFB and NFL can ruin multiple days for me. and men's college basketball can too.

tem said...

TCS is no joking matter and should be taken seriously. don't report false scores.

tem said...

it might be real to someone somewhere.

the integrity of the TCS is in the hands of its competitors.

Keef said...

I don't even need to say it

that's why the TCS has a lifetime ban on Lance Armstrong.

When Should You Use Affect?
Affect with an a means "to influence," as in, "The arrows affected Aardvark," or "The rain affected Amy's hairdo."

BLUE said...

meiz is right, i looked it up

Such and such influences the margin numbers

El Padrino said...

kodiac130 said...

"Which is ridiculous, because that's a frivolous friggin lawsuit."



well, that's just my own personal opinion. I don't see it as legally frivolous, I mean Stern wacked Pop with a quarter mil fine, issued a formal apology to fans, Miami prices tickets based on opponents, Spurs being among the highest priced (the re-sell market may kill that argument for many anyway, although that always happens just from basic economic principes there too). I'm also not sure that the NBA protected themselves from something like this via disclaimer (if they did, then it would be frivolous).

Not to say the case has much merit at all, but I believe there is enough there to pass the VERY low bar to avoid sanctions.

BLUE said...

chip kelly to the eagles

BLUE said...

guess he lied about not being interested

Keef said...

He had to get out of Oregon before the NCAA dropped the hammer

Meiz said...

That Eagles job is such a bad job to take. You can't win with those fans, even if you're winning.

Meiz said...

"He had to get out of Oregon before the NCAA dropped the hammer"

El Padrino said...

he is sorry now

BLUE said...

"He had to get out of Oregon before the NCAA dropped the hammer"

that's why I was confused when he initially said he wasn't interested.

I figured he knew he was screwed with the NCAA, so was hightailing it out of there

BLUE said...

hitale?

El Padrino said...

no

BLUE said...

maybe that's the italian version

Keef said...

wall

tem said...

hightail

tem said...

it comes from deer and other animals when they run really fast away from something.

they lift their tails very high when they run fast.

tem said...

kelly played hardball and probably got another $2M in guaranteed salary.

tem said...

plus more control.

tem said...

he knew he was going to the NFL. probably had a few teams that he deemed acceptable.

so he waited until the last of his acceptable teams needed a coach and he named his price.

tem said...

he was always leaving because of the impending sanctions.

Jugdish said...

plus more control.



plus he still gets to wear green

So I'm getting on the teeth whitening train. Haven't committed to buying the kit thing though.

BLUE said...

mrs. garrett

Keef said...

I did the teeth whitening thing a few years ago. Shit feels gross on your teeth.

tem said...

i did it pre wedding.

it might have worked a little. it is slimy though.

assuming you mean crest white strips. if you mean going to the dentist and getting them bleached then i don't know anything about that.

tem said...

the white strips made me drool a lot.

Don't forget about H said...

But does it work?

Don't forget about H said...

My last comment was directed at Keef, not Tem.

Meiz said...

I'm just using Colgate Optic toothpaste right now. They promise whiter teeth in just a week. I'll probably go full on if I can see some difference.

Keef said...

But does it work?



I think so. It takes a while. I think I used them for maybe 6 months.

Meiz said...

"if you mean going to the dentist and getting them bleached then i don't know anything about that."

I don't think actual dentists do that.

Keef said...

I think they do

Keef said...

I don't think your insurance would pay for it, though

tem said...

the toothpaste whitening will never work.

the strips will kind of work after a few months.

tem said...

my dentist will bleach your teeth or paint them.

tem said...

bleaching weakens the enamel so he won't do it on people with shitty enamel.

painting can be done on anyone.


note- he doesn't call it painting, but that is what it is. he puts something on top of the teeth to make them whiter. so i say he paints them.

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

Dentist does whitening. Correct that insurance doesn't pay for it. It's considered cosmetic.

"McDonald's France has earned an important endorsement for its new McBaguette sandwich: three Michelin-starred French chef Pierre Koffman. Citing the garnish and the warm bread, Koffman (formerly of London's La Tante Claire) tells Bloomberg that he prefers the McBaguette over a baguette sandwich from a local baker. Naturally, French bakers are horrified."

So Marsh works with you or no?

No. I just met him on Saturday. He said he was from Sconnie. I just saw tonight on his FB that he went to grafton hs

Meiz said...

Something happened with Marshall a while back though. We used to be dudes, and then I think I poked him when I first joined FB, and he removed me. I think I fell out of favor with him for some unknown reason.
