An actual Bloomberg headline: Granny’s Gold Bars Are Key to Vietnam Push to Boost Dong

George Zimmerman is the key to Vietnamese dong

Your boys signed AK47

El Padrino said...

no knicks re-signed JR Smith

El Padrino said...

the Nets signed AK47

El Padrino said...

fucking nets

people clowned the knicks for loading up on old talent last year granted the talent level is higher in this case but 36/37 years old plus whatever age terry is - i dont see how they make it, throw in joe johnson missing games (and immovable with that horrid contract) i don't know why people think already they'll be better than the knicks & pacers

El Padrino said...

unless Kidd can get through to D-Will

then all bets are off, I think D-Will can be "elite"

El Padrino said...

knicks signing ron artest

like it

Keef said...

i don't know why people think already they'll be better than the knicks



El Padrino said...
...granted the talent level is higher in this case

El Padrino said...

no issues with the bargnani deal either

Keef said...

knicks signing ron artest



I thought he said he wanted to play in China

El Padrino said...

"El Padrino said...
...granted the talent level is higher in this case"


an old hall of famer missing the game is the same as a shitty rotation guy missing a game

was my point

El Padrino said...

"I thought he said he wanted to play in China"

with Starbury? all the crazy in the world right there bro

Keef said...

World Peace texted Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv on Sunday that he was "going to China," and Marc Berman of the New York Post also reported that World Peace hadn't ruled out playing in China.

El Padrino said...

but today Yahoo is reporting he is signing with NYK for the 1.6MM exception, only sticking point is he wants another year added

El Padrino said...

today is monday, which is after Sunday

El Padrino said...

The Knicks are trying to schedule a meeting with Metta World Peace in Las Vegas either on Monday or Tuesday, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Agent Marc Cornstein said that nothing is official on the meeting yet, but said there’s “mutual interest.’’

When asked if he’s coming to Vegas to sit down with the Knicks, World Peace responded via text message to The Post, “No, going to watch Floyd Mayweather train.”

Keef said...

I am not saying he didn't sign with the Kniss. You were questioning my comment about him possibly playing in China, and I was showing that I didn't make it up

El Padrino said...

vegas baby

ToddPacker said...

"Is LP going to the all-star festivities?"

I had tickets to the game, but we sold them last week for a huge profit

El Padrino said...

"I was showing that I didn't make it up"

i believed you (cuz i read that too, just a different source)

ToddPacker said...

I never saw the tickets. one of my brothers got the tickets and I paid $540 for a pair of tickets. I sold my pair for $1800

ToddPacker said...

I'm heading to Chicago on Wednesday for PJ concert at wrigley on Friday so the extra cash will be nice

LP is good with the stocks, just not with the sports

Sage Rosenfels announced his retirement. I know you're all broken up about it.

I think the Breers have to go 1 game over .500 to avoid 90 losses. I don't see that happening.

El Padrino said...

homer bailey threw another no-no i see

and TIMMY!

Keef said...

big time timmy jim

Keef said...

148 pitches is a lot, probably

The Meiz said...

Discussing Timmy yesterday, some of the folks I was with think that may have only let him go 148 pitches because he is dunzo, and that might very well be his last shot at glory.

The Meiz said...

engrish

"Name me any of his stock tips that have brought anyone here a 66% profit."

My bad. I misread and thought he said he paid $540 each ticket and sold the pair for $1800.

Keef said...

Keef said...

I think that's Dan Shanoff

El Padrino said...

official, MWP signs with NYK

BLUE said...

"Discussing Timmy yesterday, some of the folks I was with think that may have only let him go 148 pitches because he is dunzo, and that might very well be his last shot at glory."

also the fact that he won't pitch for another 2 weeks...they'll set their rotation after the break with him as the 5th guy

El Padrino said...

at that Nike event I worked I saw mad rappers and power producers, some local NYC celebs and DJ Jazzy Jeff was spinning

also got free kicks and a free Nike Dri Fit workout shirt

was suite

BLUE said...

why were the rappers angry?

did they not get shoes too?

El Padrino said...

blue is tem?

Aitch said...

Finkel is Einhorn?

Aitch said...

AJA, Nike event sounds like it was cool to work.

Aitch said...

Btw, notice that I've put up nothing but positive status updates all weekend and Keith hasn't said a weird about it. But next time I put up a grumpy or angry one, he'll be all over it saying all I do is bitch.

Just sayin'

El Padrino said...

BLUE said...

he doesn't say many weirds

Aitch said...

He is a man of few weirds. Haha

Aitch said...

Blue, did you see the link I put up for you yesterday?

BLUE said...

yes, she doesn't look as good on her tweeter

kod said...

"How do you people drop phones in toilets?

ns"

95% of the time I pee standing up, but there are two exceptions to this rule

1) I've been sleeping and it's the middle of the night (the bathroom light will wake me up and make it very hard to get back to sleep, and standing up to pee in darkness is never a solid plan) and

2) if I'm really into an article on my smartphone

-yesterday was situation #2; I had the phone in my right hand, had an itch on my ear, and bumped the phone out of my own hand with my left elbow (also recall, was on CL #4 at the time for additional context). Saved with a swoop-around grab with the left, that phone was going 5-hole

kod said...

fsdkod also dropped her phone in the toilet, but that happened because she kept it in her bra, so I guess that's another way it can happen....although I'm not sure why someone would keep their phone there

BLUE said...

"1) I've been sleeping and it's the middle of the night (the bathroom light will wake me up and make it very hard to get back to sleep, and standing up to pee in darkness is never a solid plan) and"

why do you have your phone with you in this situation?

El Padrino said...

fucking weirdo

BLUE said...

I love kod...(ns)

Aitch said...

"although I'm not sure why someone would keep their phone there"

A ton of women do this

Aitch said...

"yes, she doesn't look as good on her tweeter"

I respectfully disagree

kod said...

"A ton of women do this"


probably in part because a lot of lady pants don't have pockets

Aitch said...

"I love kod...(ns)"

Who doesn't?

kod said...

"why do you have your phone with you in this situation?"


I don't, ever; getting on the smartphone will make sure I won't get back to sleep

Aitch said...

I'm so glad I don't deal with insomnia. NS. I can always get back to sleep thankfully.

kod said...

for sure Aitch; I used to be like that until about 3 years ago. I try to go to bed super early these days, because most of the time it's hard for me to sleep past 3 AM.

kod said...

but, on the plus side, it does often result in me getting to the office around 4:30-5AM, always work that can be done

I'm thankful I don't get sluggish during the day, just a little physical exhaustion by quittin time

kod said...

"fucking weirdo"

I'd like to argue that point, but you're right....I just prefer quirky



kod said...

"I love kod...(ns)"



it's mutual; youz guys are the shit (ns)

kod said...

I wish I could have been around for the Mess offending Indians everywhere talk (if it was brought up), that was crazy

Aitch said...

I missed that.

Keef said...

kod said...

yeah H, looks like you had an amazing weekend! So cool

when you posted that version of FPT from Radiohead a few months back, I was floored; glad you're getting those well deserved props!

I'll be honest here, I assumed you were a thrash/screamer, that was my mistake

kod said...

you should unblock keith, he's got some great stuff going on (ns); even inspiring biblical quotes. H has moved up to must see status

kod said...

and I tune out the negative shit for sure; unless it's once in a blue moon, nobody wants to hear woe, unless it's funny and Charlie Brown-esque

My co-workers told me management took away all the teeth and authority we had in regards to policing the sales force. We've become patsies for sales.

kod said...

The Mess being a Mess

Not that most think the Mets are a racist organization, they are not, but they are a mess. Also, enter the Atlanta Braves

you gotta up your karma guys, you seemed kinda cursed; this shit don't help.

kod said...

just in case the whole Indian Country up in arms over Mess stupidity wasn't mentioned in here

kod said...

in case you don't want to read the article (understandable) the last quote sums everything up best

"“We’re not trying to be overly sensitive,” Chavolla said, “but it seems like we fall into this type of thing a lot. We’re led to get enthusiastic about something, and then it’s like, ‘Oh, never mind.’ It’s disappointing, but it sort of amplifies a pattern of what we’ve been dealing with for hundreds of years.”

Meet the Mets

The Meiz said...

Also, feel free to pop a few CLs and put down some thoughts about the Zimmerman trial. If you feel like it.

Aitch said...

"The block feature doesn't block just your statuses I don't like. It blocks all of them"

Ah... you unsubscribed. You did not block, cuz I can still see you and comment on your stuff.

Aitch said...

"yeah H, looks like you had an amazing weekend! So cool"

Seriously the best musical performance experience I've ever had. Opening for Nonpoint was awesome, but this night was just transcendent. Never had a crowd react to me like that before, and all we did was sat with 2 guitars and a bunch of emotion. It was cool.

"when you posted that version of FPT from Radiohead a few months back, I was floored; glad you're getting those well deserved props!"

It was Karma Police, but thanks!

"I'll be honest here, I assumed you were a thrash/screamer, that was my mistake"

Most of my stuff is hard rock/heavy covers. Certainly everything I've ever posted here with the exception of Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy. haha

Aitch said...

Anyone else gonna be watching the Derby?

kod said...

"Also, feel free to pop a few CLs and put down some thoughts about the Zimmerman trial. If you feel like it."

I was surprised and saddened by the verdict, I thought they would at least convict on manslaughter. That being said, I think it's better for 10 guilty people to go free than 1 innocent person to go to prison. Our system is far from perfect, and deeply flawed on issues of class and race....but it's still the best justice system in the world, and I hope people who are offended and outraged by the decision will work to effect change and take action to make it more fair, in whatever ways they are able


kod said...

"It was Karma Police, but thanks!"


faaaak; apologies (ns)

Aitch said...

No "back, back, back, GONE!" yet. Thank God!

Aitch said...

Shit! Spoke too soon.

Aitch said...

David Wright actually requested a "back, back, back" from Berman... ugh.

Aitch said...

I like that they show the projected distance. I've always wondered how far they would go if there was nothing to hit.

Aitch said...

Nothing pisses me offf quicker than some ignorant asshole saying "You're in America, speak English!" UGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

Keef said...

I was surprised and saddened by the verdict


I don't think the jury had a choice. Its a stupid law, and written poorly.

Keef said...

The news stations here are grate. They have storm chasers who drive around with a camera in their car and the weather person goes to them and they show the live video. It's fucking raining. That's it. And the storm chaser is like, look over ere and see the water that is splashing up from that car

Mike Hilario Guys like Ortiz and Pedro grew up in a country where they were encouraged to come to the U.S. and succeed.

Mike Hilario Talk to any ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher and you will learn that English is one of the most difficult languages to learn. And believe me, most of the people who don't speak English clearly and fluently are embarrassed by that fact and would rather speak intelligently and articulately in their native tongue than sound foolish and be ridiculed for their poor mastery of the English language.
