SHAW-shank redemption

Brian Shaw is the nuggets new head coach. He's the guy I wanted from the day they fired furious George.  Now if they only win 35 games next year, i'll feel like an idiot, but I always liked Brian Shaw as a player, and he should be a pretty well rounded coach.   Not many guys can say they played for the likes of Red Auerbach (GM) and Phil Jackson, so he's had some pretty interesting influences.

Got back late last night from the trip to Northern California.  It was a good trip.  Spent one day in Napa, which is always fun.   Rained the last 2 days we were there which bummed out the kids, not as much fun sitting around in the house.  It tortured my kids to be able to see the pool but not get in it.

Flight home was good, the Rockies AAA team was on our flight, headed back from sacramento as well.  Funny to see the guys who've made a lot of money in MLB, true millionaires, flying Southwest with the common folk.  Jeff Francis and Aaron Cook were there.  Cmblue sat next to some dude who won't ever play in the big leagues.  Doblue 2, was flirting (yes, she's 3) with Drew Pomeranz, he's the rockies "future ace", although the two times he's been up the last 2 years haven't been awesome.  He had a super hot girlfriend with him though, chicks know where the money is.

I'm ready for the Boston PD to either arrest Hernandez, or move on.  Everything around this whole thing seems super shady to me, and Johnny Cochrane is dead, or is he?  I think he is?  Who knows.

Tem was complaining yesterday about the slowest time in sports, but Wimbledon has started, so that should keep us busy for the next 2 weeks.  Always pissed me off that the brits had that stupid championship run during the 4th of july.  And then the british open (ahem, open championship /mize), comes right after that, and then Training Camp starts.  So we'll have plenty to talk about.

Congrats on new job keith. Good to see you got a new role, and more responsibility, but they won't increase your pay for a while. Don't want you to get everything at once, gotta keep you humble.  They may let you start ordering uniforms next too.

Congrats on selling your 2nd home jug.  I guess the furloughs have gotten bad when our government employees are having to sell their 2nd homes, what has the world come to. 

Congrats on graduating kindergarten doep. Now you only have 12 more graduations to go before you've had as many as dad.

Congrats on being an uncle meiz.  If only you were as cool as uncle drew.

Congrats on having a kid now Tem.  It feels really special, until you think about the fact that there are like a billion kids born each year.  Although apparently the world's population is shrinking for the first time in recorded history.  Or maybe that was just the US population, which doesn't make sense that the US population would be shrinking because all the people who just move here randomly.  I'm looking at you spiff.

Three day work week this week, then 3 day week next week.  That's the cat's meow.

El Padrino said...

nope

Jugdish said...

the larger in size the less adorable something becomes



TWSS

BLUE said...

Aitch said...

"as opposed to a larger american flag"

Ah so you meant to say adorable sized, American flag.

Aitch said...

Read a book, bro.

El Padrino said...

i dont read books although i would like to at some point start doing that i enjoy readin periodicals alot more than books and if i do read or decide to start reading books they will be non-fiction (factual) only

Keef said...

A lot is two separate words

El Padrino said...

no it isn't, it's a lot

The Meiz said...

It always chaps my ass to see alot.

some browns LB was arrested for attempted murder as well.

fucking NFL.

Yea, it's been a rough week.

Keef said...

In Medieval times, a "moment" was defined as 1/40th of an hour, or 1.5 minutes.

Keef said...

"apparently Blue's jinxing power is as good as Keith's"

Some chowda hag came into HD last night and was axing me where fridge water filters were at. I noticed she had a gray Pats t-shirt on. I showed her where the filters were, and she turnt* around and I saw Hernandez 81 on the back of the shirt. I said "Hernandez huh? Interesting choice right now". She says "what do you mean?" Me: "well, with the whole murder issue and all". She says "So? He hasn't been charged with anything." I said "Yet", and she gave me a ::flank glare:: and said thanks for helping with the filter, and she left. Good times.

Aitch said...

Yea, the amount of denial around here is astonishing

Aitch said...

People calling sports radio saying he was framed or he hasn't been convicted yet. Etc etc

Keef said...

Probably the same people who were going crazy when the bombers' parents were saying it wasn't their sons that did it.

tem said...

he's been cut, that is all you need to know.

tem said...

you don't know him personally and he isn't on your team anymore so now you stop caring.

there is no connection anymore.

El Padrino said...

Indeed, growing profits at 12% compounded annually for a decade while also nearly tripling ROIC is a formidable achievement. And it drove huge shareholder value creation. From 2002 to 2012, MCD's economic earnings grew 35% compounded annually. For comparison, main competitor Yum Brands (YUM) only managed 15% compounded annual economic earnings growth over that same period.

Simultaneous high growth and ROIC increases prove MCD's management team takes care of the real bottom line as well as (or better than) any other, and is a proven shareholder value creator.


BEAST

Aitch said...

Celeb/Athlete worship. Redonk.

El Padrino said...

Meanwhile, MCD has no plans to slow its growth. The company is investing over $3 billion in stores this year. $2 is targeted for new stores as the firm adds to its global footprint of 34,000 stores, including 20,000 international locations.

BEAST

The Meiz said...

$2 doesn't seem like much money for each store. You can't even get a QPC for $2.

El Padrino said...

Real Sports (60 min style show but on sports) was on point last night

jay williams piece

and negro league baseball, which i wasnt going to give a chance but stuck around for it, ended up good

ToddPacker said...

congrats on the sojug news, jug

tem said...

aja congrats.

tem said...

by the by, they just did an ultrasound. i don't think jug is a dad yet.

tem said...

i'm sure everyone knew that though.

BLUE said...

why can't aaron hernandez put his arms through the sleeves of his shirt?

Aitch said...

He must have answered the door shirtless and they cuffed him right away.

tem said...

or he has such huge guns that they don't fit

El Padrino said...

i always answer the door shirtless

Keef said...

i'm sure everyone knew that though.



except LP

Jugdish said...

Thanks!!

yeah, just the ultrasound today. they showed us the 3d ultrasound too...cool stuff!

El Padrino said...

i'm sure everyone knew that though.

of course

The Meiz said...

Finally getting a long overdue OS update for the S3

The Meiz said...

I wonder how many of the 116 apps on my phone are junk. Too scared to find out though.

El Padrino said...

114 or so

El Padrino said...

phone people are the worst

Keef said...

I prefer phone people over can't admit when they're wrong people

tem said...

What is "phone people"?

BLUE said...

people who have fones

The Meiz said...

"phone people are the worst"

You should maybe look at you app manager function to see all the built in apps you have, smart guy.

The Meiz said...

tack an R on there

El Padrino said...

What is "phone people"?

like on it all day and night, has an app for everything, bluetooth, etc

El Padrino said...

"can't admit when they're wrong people"

also awful people

The Meiz said...

Toothless.

The NCAA has zero credibility.

Aitch said...

They are covering this Hernandez thing like crazy. They had a helicopter following him from the N. Attleboro P.D. to the courthouse.

The Meiz said...

Tyler scoffs at your "crazy" news coverage.

Aitch said...

haha true

Aitch said...

The courthouse is about 4 blocks from me. Lots of commotion in my town right now.

tem said...

"The courthouse is about 4 blocks from me. Lots of commotion in my town right now. "

should we pray for you and your family?

Keef said...

H is such an attention seeker

Jugdish said...

like on it all day and night, has an app for everything, bluetooth, etc



see i pictured Lp being a bluetooth device on the ear guy

El Padrino said...

no way, el pad uses like 100 minutes a month, maybe

El Padrino said...

and never hands free

Keef said...

"can't admit when they're wrong people"

also awful people



This made me LOL

Aitch said...

If you say so, Keith.

Keef said...

it did make me LOL

Aitch said...

I was referring to your attention seeker comment. You know that.

tem said...

i don't think H was seeking attention with his comment re:courthouse, but i will still bust his balls about it.

Aitch said...

Murder, carying without a license, 2 counts each of carrying a large caliber weapon and possessing a firearm without an FID card.

Jugdish said...

you can't carry weapons, trust me


/plaxico

Keef said...

but i will still bust his balls about it.



It's fun. He gets so tight about it

Aitch said...

We all have our roles to play

Aitch said...

This is unreal.

Keef said...

He did have his shirt off when he answered the door

BLUE said...

and people thought Tim Tebow would be the circus in town

Aitch said...

He is fucked. The details the prosecutor is laying out are nuts. One or both of his friends definitely cooperated.

Keef said...

snitches

BLUE said...

you have the right to wear a shirt, if you give up that right, one will be appointed for you

BLUE said...

"He is fucked. The details the prosecutor is laying out are nuts."

if the glove doesn't fit

Jugdish said...

He did have his shirt off when he answered the door


comment from that link:

"Oh, I'm sorry. I can't come to the door right now. I'm afraid that in my weakened condition, I could take a nasty spill down the stairs and subject myself to further school absences. You can reach my parents at their places of business. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your concern for my well-being. Have a nice day!"

El Padrino said...

didnt they charge ray lewis with murder but then he pleaded out for obstructing justice or am i misremembering that

Aitch said...

no bail. Not shocking.

Keef said...

Hroger Cossack

BLUE said...

"Lewis's attorneys, Don Samuel and Ed Garland, of the Atlanta law firm Garland, Samuel & Loeb, negotiated a plea agreement with Howard, where the murder charges against Lewis were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against Oakley and Sweeting,[46] and his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice"

Keef said...

Don Samuel and Ed Garland, of the Atlanta law firm Garland, Samuel & Loeb



Been there, done that

tem said...

hernandez is too mexican sounding too get off free.

Keef said...

wall

Keef said...

cmk is giving me grief because I don't like her choice of a girl name. I told her over a month ago I didn't like it. She didn't want to talk about it. Today I email her, so are we going to find a new name? She comes back with, "I can't believe you're asking me this 2 days before the due date", like this is the first time I mentioned it or something.

BLUE said...

2 days before?

congrats keith

tem said...

lots of top seeds losing at wimbledon.

tem said...

what name?

tem said...

whatever it is just tell her that is the same name i used.

tem said...

or tell her that csilok hates the name. at least that will stir up shit.

BLUE said...

rumor has it hernandez was pissed that the patriots had signed Tebow, and didn't want to play with him, so this was his way out (s)

tem said...

"Anderson Silva Says BJ Penn is the Greatest Mixed Martial Artist of All Time"

Silva is dumb

tem said...

so the gays can marry now?

BLUE said...

ep is pissed that the defense of marriage act was ruled unconstitutional

BLUE said...

i2i

Keef said...

whatever it is just tell her that is the same name i used.



She knows the name you used

Keef said...

Fucking Caroline.

Now she's using the whole "do you know what my mind & body is going through right now" argument.


So I guess Caroline it is

tem said...

caroline is what my coworker named his kid. ns

she was born a day before mine.

caroline elizabeth.

tem said...

sweet caroline is about a pedophile, so good name choice there.

tem said...

so paula deen said the n word like 30 years ago and is now getting fired?

tem said...

methinks i am missing some info on that.

Aitch said...

"so paula deen said the n word like 30 years ago and is now getting fired?"

Pretty much.

Keef said...

sweet caroline is about a pedophile, so good name choice there.



mhmm

El Padrino said...

"She comes back with, "I can't believe you're asking me this 2 days before the due date", like this is the first time I mentioned it or something."

give her a break she's 40 weeks pregnant

El Padrino said...

caroline is awful

apologies

tem said...

i actually like caroline as a name. i just hate the pedophile song.

tem said...

just fill out the paperwork wrong and put whatever name you want.

El Padrino said...

how come the MBA doesnt have a policy where they have to interview white canidates when searching for a HC?

El Padrino said...

NBA

El Padrino said...

They interviewed Byron Scott, Brian Shaw, Lionel Hollins, Alvin Gentry and Nate McMillan

Keef said...

caroline is awful



I thought I was supposed to give her a break

tem said...

"how come the MBA doesnt have a policy where they have to interview white canidates when searching for a HC?"

they do, but it is really just the Phil Jackson clause, where every team with an opening asks Phil Jax if he wants it.

El Padrino said...

with Doc in the fold this must mean CP3 will sign there

tem said...

cp3, dwight howard, paul pierce, garnett, they are all going there.

tem said...

it will be the big 5 with blake.

tem said...

and they will still suck

The Meiz said...

Sorry to hear about the antiquated name, Keith.

Keef said...

what do I know? I have the most unattractive male name

Aitch said...

Garnett won;t be there. Stern put a condition on the deal that brought Rivers there. Only way he would approve it was that the teams can't trade any players until 2014.

El Padrino said...

yeah garnett cant go there

Aitch said...

Only way Pierce and Garnett end up there is if the C's buy them both out, which is not going to happen.

Aitch said...

Meiz, my friend's assessment of your state.

"Every Populated Town and or actual City in this State is Surrounded by Laid Back Hippies!! Vietnam is over! The 80's Rock has Evolved. And the 90's Bugs Bunny Loud Cypress Hill TLC Lollipop Days Expired!! I'm in Sore need of some East Coast Fashion Therapy..."

The Meiz said...

I can't make out what your friend is saying. We have lots of hippies? sure.

Aitch said...

He's not the smartest person I know. Just felt the need to share with you.

Jugdish said...

Now she's using the whole "do you know what my mind & body is going through right now" argument.



cmjug pulls that one too, and there is no comeback for that

except "eat glass!"

s

The Meiz said...

Okay. His comment is very Padrinoan.

Aitch said...

it is

El Padrino said...

thanks

El Padrino said...

"In 2011, Americans drank about 3 billion gallons or 65 billion servings of tea, 85% of it iced, according to The Tea Association of the USA (TAUSA)."

that's alot of teabags

Aitch said...

You should be used to it

Keef said...

There are 22 servings in a gallon of tea? NFW. What do they consider a serving? A shot glass?

Aitch said...

6 ounces apparently

Keef said...

yeah, 6 ounces. I was going to say that, too

Jugdish said...

Murder, carying without a license, 2 counts each of carrying a large caliber weapon and possessing a firearm without an FID card and he ripped one of those tags off his mattress

he shouldn't have given away his pba card

fucking pba card

BLUE said...

by the way, drinking sweet tea vodker with lemonade, is the bomb


and you get drunk fast...great summer drink

BLUE said...

and I don't like sweet tea...or tea of any kind really

Aitch said...

"Bristol County Sheriff: Hernandez will be interviewed to check for gang affiliations, which will determine where he is placed in jail."

Seems smart

tem said...

Really garnett can't go? That's the only problem you see with the big 5 idea?

Aitch said...

Yup

Aitch said...

Cool story
