Happy Thanksgiving!

Every year on Thanksgiving we break out Christmas Vacation and watch it with the family...nice little tradition. cmjug's sister and her family are in town, so we'll be over at the in laws all weekend. Hopefully I can sneak in a few naps. I imagine I'll spend a portion of black Friday on my roof putting up lights and no part of black Friday in a store of any kind.

By the time this gets posted, keef will have had 3 Thanksgivings. S

Turkeys...fried, baked, or smoked? What is your preference? How would you rank them?

I hope everyone has a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! Enjoy the long weekend, food, football, and booze.

thanksgiving eve

On the eve of the greatest day of the year, I give thanks.

what are you thankful for?  I'm thankful for cmfost, and mills

True story:
Monday night, doblue1 was getting ready for bed and started pulling clothes out of her closet, ones that were too big and didn't fit her.  I asked her what she was doing.  She goes to a charter school and they have to wear uniforms.  They have variable options, so it's not the exact same thing everyday.  Anyway, she told me that she has a friend at school who only has one uniform, so she wears the same dress, shirt, and tights everyday to school.  Doblue said "She only has one, and I have all these ones that I don't even wear, so I want to give them to her".  It melted my heart.  So cmblue took the clothes to school yesterday before school and gave them to the teacher because we didn't want to embarrass the little girl.  The teacher was so thankful she started to tear up, and said, in all her years of teaching this is the sweetest thing any of her students has done.   These are the days where I'm proud to be a father, and while most the time I feel like I'm just screwing my kids up, it's days like this when I realize that inspite of my idiocy, my kids are going to be great human beings.

As dumb as it sounds, this little episode has put the holidays back into perspective for me, and now I'm all weird and happy and giddy.

Now I can sit and watch football and drink beer all day tomorrow, in peace.

It's tuesday

So I guess it snowed here. I hope the weather gets better for Thursday. I hate driving to WaVa in shitty weather. It is only a 2hr drive, but still, it is a pain in the ass if the roads are shit. Takes like 3hrs30mins then because either the roads are bad or idiot drivers think they are bad. At least I don't have 3 Thanksgivings to go to like Keith does. I know he said it wasn't woe, but good lord, I would be so tired lugging the kid around to that many places. I guess his are probably all close by though. He has 2 kids though, twice the pain in the ass.

Tampa Bay keeps winning. That's OK. There is no great player at the top of the draft board. Going into the year I thought Clowney might be the man, but I don't feel that way anymore.

Pirates Hot Stove moves? I don't think there are any.

tOSU fans are praying for a Bama or FSU loss. It'd be hilarious if Auburn beats Bama and leapfrogs tOSU.

I want to retire in 15 years.

Short week this week, we get 1/2 day Wednesday and then all of Thursday and Friday off. Yee haw.

El Picks

Don't feel like typing out the lines and names and shit. So just some small talk.
I'm on all the dogs. Think I finally cracked the code. Usually it takes me until week 8 or 9.

If the Giants beat the Cowboys this weekend oh man......
Wonder what the concussion tests are like.
Seems like there should be a bit more consideration in the GM's office to have a good backup QB. Bears know. Packers don't.
Still not sure what the Giants were thinking when they elected to have Painter over Carr. Carr is far better. Favor to Peyton maybe?
Manning / Brady - I could look this up but I feel like Brady has gotten the better of Manning but I remember Mannings super bowl year they beat them in a tremendous game at RCA and that win is probably worth 2 or 3 reg season wins. Think Pats beat them twice in playoffs? Was one the AFC champ game? I don't recall specifically and not looking it up. Debate.

This A-Rod thing, I'm certain he is a fucking huge liar and he probably took steroids but MLB is kind of acting really shady themselves. For a guy who never failed a drug test they sure as shit have a hard-on for this guy. Bribes, felons this thing is playing out like a political thriller we've seen in a movie. Just with bats and balls instead of murder and espionage.

Knicks stink. Melo is gone. Welp. Happy the Nets are falling apart already.

Hot Stove. I want Braun. Bourjos. Eithier. Peralta. (not all but I like those targets)
And a 4th rotation guy that will throw 200 innings. Ike for Braun Meiz and other pieces, do it do it.

I know this was a bit lazy but this time I have an excuse I'm out or work thurs and fri, cmep's gramma passed so we all busy and shit with wakes and burials and shit. Thanks in advance for condolences for miss ep. If you are lucky enough to have grandparents in your life still god bless they are true gems.

Jack the dude who chose to get a BYE to the semifinals because his opponent didn't make weight, didn't make weight for his semifinal fight after bragging for weeks how he is able to eat what he wants and still make weight. That's embarrassing.

The Fielder/Kinsler trade...I like the trade for both teams. That's my analysis. I did find this headline funny..."Trade shows Tigers have a 'win-now' mentality".

*********Dad and baby ramblings below, feel free to skip*************

Being a dad is awesome! I've been having a great time with this little guy. We were blessed with a baby that doesn't cry a whole lot, but I'm sure that'll catch on at some point. I took two weeks off work to spend time with him and cmjug and to help her out. I'll go back next week, work 3 days, and have another 5 off.

He arrived 11 days early. He was born on the Marine Corps birthday (Nov 10) which made my dad happy. We named him Jackson Louis Marici. I've always liked the name Jack and Louis is my middle name (after my grandfather).

Everything seemed to happen so fast; cmjug started feeling the labor pains around 6:30 on Saturday night, we were in the hospital by 9:30, and he was born at 1:42 Sunday morning. He gave us a little scare while we were in the hospital and didn't eat on the first full night. His blood sugar dropped and the nurses said they might have to put him in the NICU, which would have meant we would have had to leave him there at least a night after cmjug was released. Luckily with some help from the lactation specialist we were able to get his blood sugar back up and leave together. He has been eating like a champ ever since.

I wasn't sure what to expect with having my first kid at 39, but its just been amazing, life changing experience to say the least. For those not on Facebook, I added a couple of my favorite pics of the little man. I don't do a lot of posting on Facebook, but I'll throw a pic up there from time to time.

*************End dad and baby ramblings*******************

Mize...I still need a name and pic from the Lions Bears game.

1/8th pole

NBA season is already 1/8th over.  San Antonio and Indiana have the best records, so they must be the best teams.  Milwaukee and Utah have the worse* records, so they must be the not best teams.  All I know is that the Nuggets suck, but they are good enough to not get one of the top picks, which is a horrible amount of goodness.  Look at Charlotte, if the playoffs started today, and maybe they should, they'd be the 6 seed in the East.  My 1/8th of the season MVP would have to be Paul George, and my Rookie of the Year would probably be Kelly Olynyk, because he's got great hair, and I like guys with girl first names.

Adam Levine is the sexiest man alive. Ok, there you go

some of the luckiest people are the ones who....

Fantasy seasons are starting to wind down.  I'm on the outside of the playoffs in my money league, but have a good shot to get into the top 4 (currently in 5th place).  Or, I could tank and then be in the running to win the consolation bracket and at least break even.  It's a dilemma.

Single dad this weekend as cmblue has a wedding to attend out of town.  Party time. 

refs made the right call on Monday night.  Dude shouldn't have thrown the flag anyway, that's the unwritten rule of the last play of the game. 

How does George Zimmerman have such a hot girlfriend.  Maybe he's just a great guy who has been misunderstood?  Or do chicks just like bad boys, or fame?  Or maybe, she knew that eventually, dating a guy who has no job and just killed a teenager would get her in the headlines somehow.

Has anybody watched the Mike Tyson stand up special on HBO yet?  I saw the first part of it, and it's just too hard to understand what he's saying.  Maybe I need a hearing aid, I don't know.

Pics from the Thomas Howard crash are ridiculous.  Makes me not want to buy a BMW, I thought those were supposed to be safe cars.  If it can't keep from being destroyed when you're traveling at over 100mph and clip a truck and go airborne, then I don't want one.

Clay Matthews does a lot of commercials. Like a whole lot.

Ray Lewis is going to pay half of A. Brooks' fine if he gets one. That's nice of him. NFL should double the fine.

bgtem has an ear infection. She basically got candy for medicine. Where was the fucking candy medicine when I was a kid? Dimatap was the tastiest stuff out there. The orange stuff you learned to like. This stuff is like pink and fruity.

Nets suck. Fire Jason Kidd. Get players who haven't logged a million miles on those knees.

Half day because the kid is sick. I am home in the AM, cmtem comes home at noon. I think I will have McDonalds for lunch.

Allstate commercial needs some editing. Grill falls out, next shot grill is in the truck.

I need hired by commercial people to watch them to help them out.

goddman Ray Rice

had to face him this week, hoping he would continue his awfulness. woe

look at the bad intentions on Woodley's face in the 3rd angle, damn, awesome

Hendricks was robbed, but if you think you have 3 rounds for sure, with MMA judges, going into a 5th round, still gotta keep going for it to make sure, seemed like he could have tried harder in the 5th, still thought he won though.

what happened to Lions in the second half? Stafford had like 320 in the 1st half and ends up with like 370? the fuk?

El Pix

Just hold on we're coming home.

Jets +1 over BILLS
The Bills are a mess the Jets are actually ok enough. I swear Ed Reed always looks like he's the drunk black uncle.

BEARS +3 over Baltimore
Been a real struggle for the Ravens this year. The AFC North and NFC East are terrible.

Browns +5.5 over BENGALS
The Browns are actually ok enough. Bengals have enough on offense not sure why they struggle so mightily. I guess it's the ginger. Fucking gingers.

Skins +3.5 over EAGLES
Iggles are turrible at home. I ain't buying the Foles hype.

STEELERS +2 over Lions
Fucking Lions type game. They will lose like 9-6 or something like that. No chance that clown coaching staff prepares them well enough. They should rip the Steelers this week but wont because Fucking Lions. Just when they get momentum it happens.

Atlanta -1 over TAMPA
Wonder if Tony G regrets coming back.

JAX +7 over Cards
Like keef said, no clue why Arizona is giving 7. Grab yourself a frozen custard keef for that gem.

Raiders +7 over TEXANS
Again, no clue here either.

San Diego -1 over MIAMI
Fins are toxic.

SAINTS -3 over Niners
Kaep returns to the scene of the Super Bowl loss.

SEATTLE -12 over Vikes

kc +8.5 over Broncos
all im saying is that pass rush vs a bum ankle wobbly manning cannot = blowout.

Pats +2.5 over CAROLINA
Brady and Bill are 15-5 in Monday Nighters, 4-0 when preceded by a Bye and 8-6 ATS off of Bye weeks in general. Carolina has some steam behind them but a healthy Pats team with balance will come out on top.

Freaking jug. Congrats on the new kid and all, but c'mon bro. Don't forget your roots.
At the beginning of the college season I said the BCS title game would be Stanford/FU. That was a typo. It should have been Stanford/FSU.
Bengals suck. Good thing they are in a bad division. Without Geno Atkins and Leon Hall, the defense is average at best. And Dalton is still a red head. We know how they are. JERKS!
Big UFC PPV this weekend. We need tempicks. I'm going to a bah* to watch the fights. That means they will be awful. You've been warned.
Upset special for NFL this weekend is the Jagoffs beating the Cardinals. I have no idear why the Cards are giving 7 pts. Titans are gonna beat the Colts tonight. Colts can't run and w/o Wayne all the defense needs to do is double T.Y. Hilton.
Christmas party season is rapidly approaching. Good times.

my days are all screwed up

I keep forgetting what day it is.

I'm getting a guy out to the house today to tell me how much it costs to add solar panels.  We'll see if that's a decent option or not.

Some hikeschool kid died from a hit in a football game.  This is the beginning of the end.  Soon enough there will be a death, not necessarily in game, but resulting from something in game, and the NFL will be fucked as we know it.   Roger knows it, that's why he's making all the insane rules.

How come there hasn't been this outpouring of relief for the people in the Phillipines, like there was in Haiti?  I've known people who have been to the phillipines, pray for my family

phillipino strong?

tOSU freshman wide receiver needs to shut up.  Urb knows they can't beat Alabama or FSU, or Auburn, or Mizzou, or LSU, or Oregon, or Standford.  They can probably beat Fresno State or Louisville in whatever BCS bowl they go to.  Baylor might not beat tOSU though.

Dwayne Bowe to start despite arrest.  Of course he is.  Biggest game of the season, chefs won't put him on the sideline if they don't have to. 

Speaking of this Sunday's game, heard this stat, and didn't believe it, but it was on the radio so it must be true.  The Chefs/Broncos game has the highest combined winning percentage for the two teams, this late in the season since the NFL/AFL merger, I think that may be for just a regular season matchup, but I don't know.  Last matchup later that was higher was 1960 something, 10-0 Vikings vs 9-1 Rams.  this means the game will suck

I was too busy last week, and totally forgot to make picks in my money pick'em.  Was in 2nd place for the season, and now drop to 6th.  I'll get money for winning individual weeks, but my season chances are now over.  FML

I have shit to do.

Go Bucs. Winning is OK because there is no player worth tanking for in the NFL draft. It is a crapshoot as to which player is going to help. Do you take Ted, Johnny, Marcus, someone else? Who gives a shit?

My side still hurts. I think I have a tumor.

Fucking hate doctors.

Why is that guy in the taco bell commercial even at the basketball courts? Why is dressed like he is at work? Who takes taco bell to the neighborhood playground and then tries to play? Fuck taco bell it makes you do stupid shit.

Gotta start picking it up this is the week.

So my thoughts on the Dolphins thing is predictable. Martin is a pussy. But here's the thing. This is the stance you choose to take? I mean you are grasping for sympathy here I see the play but you are for certain alienating yourself from the NFL. With 80% of the fins locker room supporting Ingcognegro it's a lock he won't be back there.

The news is bad for the NFL on that Dorsett story from yesterday but again maybe it's because I'm just a NFL fan and I don't care what happens before games, after games 20 years after games I just care what happens during the games - I don't give a shit. People that play football from the 80's on lets say had to have known that tackle football would fuck you up later in life. Runners know that their legs or feet or knees will be shot if they run for 20 years. Wrestlers know they batter their body. Boxers know they will have brain damage at some point. Why don't football players know that bashing your head into other bodies is potentially going to be a bad deal later in life? Why does the NFL have to answer for this - that they knowingly hid proof from them? And what were they supposed to do?

Seattle -5.5 over ATLANTA
Hawks really haven't played well the past couple of week but Atlanta is done. Throw this year away. Ryan is forcing balls, they have no running game and they are getting scorched on defense. All three phases.

Detroit +1 over BEARS
Cutty back. Still like Detroit who had their way with the Bears last meeting.

St looo

Did you order the Code Red?

I think Herm Edwards made the best point when he said "you don't want to see the sausage being made..." when he talked about the culture in the NFL locker room. Most people don't want to or need to see what goes on the in the locker room, just enjoy the games. This has been an interesting story and has made for good sports talk radio over the last few days. We'll see what the investigation turns up, but I think the Dolphins biggest mistake was to put Incognito on their leadership counsel and Incognito's biggest mistake was using the N word in the voicemail, or maybe leaving any voicemail at all. That's all I have to say about that.

cmjug is 38 weeks...any day now.

Biden is the best!

shoot it's my day to post

Interesting elections in CO.  Apparently some counties want to be their own state, while others don't.  they were all scattered in the north east part of the state, so I'm guessing we won't have a North Colorado anytime soon.

Also, voters approved a 15% excise tax and 10% sales tax on marijuana.  Fucking expensive taxes, now it goes back to being cheaper to buy it off the street.  Or on an indian reservation.

Had a dream that I forgot to bet H on the Pats/Broncos game (in 3 weeks).  So I guess now I do dream about H.

The rumor about town is that Jonathan Martin is gay.  And that's why Incognito was busting his balls so hard, and why Martin never stood up for himself or went to coaches. Also, other rumor is that Pouncey threatened to have Aaron Hernandez kill him.  Which is my favorite rumor.

Nuggets suck.  0-3..furious George has to be laughing somewhere.

It's my anniversary, so I forgot to post.

It is anniversary 2. The cotton anniversary. I boat* cmtem some cotton balls. Also she got a winter hat and a hoodie. I have no idea what to buy her. She boat* me new sheets for the bed. That was one of the top intrawebs suggestions.

haha Packers. Fucking Boykin. Fuck you and your 1 target. Catch more balls.

Fuck you Cameron and your 1 catch. Catch more balls.

Went 1-1 in money leagues. Won in the free league. The Johnson boys got me 89 points or so. My opponent had 77. Andre killed me in the other league though.

WaVa won a game. They are thinking they might make a crap bowl. I doubt it.

Boat* Madden football 25. I don't like it. Seems really zoomed out, guys look like intellivision players.

Yahoo! had an interesting article about some brothel in Nevada. Summit IV. It has a sports bar.
