Who give a fuck about Cecil the lion?

One thing I'll never understand.  Hunting for trophy.  But I'd never ostracize a person for doing it.  Last I checked this was America.  Keep your outrage limited to parking tickets, dirty politicians, scams, Jehovah Witness preachers and kids who fuck up fast food orders.  For crissakes does everyone need to agree on how a person should live or what to believe in?  Social media makes everything 1000 times worse. 

Oh by the way, shit like this still happens all over the world.
"Bangladeshi blogger who criticised Islam hacked to death..."

And we over here stressing about a dead lion in Africa.

So baseball has been pretty fantastic.  Lots of good stories nationally.  Will be a nice end, good pennant races to follow and interesting matchups potentially in October.
That's all I have to say about that.

August = Arian Foster injury month

FOOOOOOOOOTBAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL
is right around the corner.
I draft 8th.  Antonio Brown time

Woodford Reserve is all kinds of delicious. 

Imagine living the life of Aaron Rodgers......Man that guy has it made.  Jeter-esque.  Just pulling out of Olivia Munn and dropping babies on her belly.   All kinds of suite.

Seriously is Rubio related to Alf or something.  Dem some ears bro.

I'm in the minority on True Detective season 2.  I like.

I wish Olympic committee's and FIFA (we know why FIFA does it, obvi) would stop picking third world countries or emerging markets to hold the events.  Brazil, an emerging market, does not have a clean water supply.  It's so bad Olympic athletes cannot even practice in it for fear of catching some mutated disease or virus.  USA is one of the only countries that is equipped to deal with all the problems these games create on day one.  You can hold the World Cup in America tomorrow if you want.  Either all on the east coast or all on the west coast or in between, north or south.  Don't matter.  We got this.

USA USA USA

agreed

Blue said...

Fuck the world cup

Blue said...

Social media has made the world over-reactors. Can't just have a normal reaction to something, we have to talk in hyperbole and over-react

ToddPacker said...

I like season 2 of True Detective too. not sure what all the complaining is about

El Padrino said...

Golden age of beers and tv shows.

Aitch said...

I'm glad that Boston is no longer in the running for the Olympics. It would have been an epic disaster.

Blue said...

Fuck bill simmons

Keef said...

Is Mize going to go watch some golfing this weekend?

Meiz said...

"Is Mize going to go watch some golfing this weekend?"

I gotta fucking work.

Meiz said...

Fuck work.

Blue said...

i thought you've had this on your to do list for like 4 years

Keef said...

I thought that was the Ryder cup

Keef said...

I gotta fucking work



All four days?

Keef said...

You don't have PTO?

El Padrino said...

Woe

Meiz said...

"All four days?"

Yep.

Meiz said...

"You don't have PTO?"

Not on short notice. We're understaffed.

I dicked my crappy co-worker out of switching a weekend last month. Wasn't going to ask anyone for this weekend. Going to the PGA @ Whistling Straights is boring, too.

Meiz said...

"I thought that was the Ryder cup"

Yep. Been planning on the Ryder Cup since I was 23ish.

Keef said...

Not on short notice. We're understaffed.

Hasn't this been the case since you started? Seems like Sysco thinks you're properly staffed.

El Padrino said...

Every one is understaffed. Thats the new norm.

Meiz said...

"Every one is understaffed. Thats the new norm."

And it sucks.

Here, have 13 paid days to take off work. Good luck figuring out when to take 'em. Your supervisor's boss requires the schedule to be made out two months in advance.

Meiz said...

Going to have a very real conversation with supe during my review. It will make no progress.

Keef said...

Your supervisor's boss requires the schedule to be made out two months in advance


Redonk. I hate the HD schedule that's made 3 weeks in advance.

El Padrino said...

The niners will be awful no?

Aitch said...

Yes

Aitch said...

Are you guys doing preview posts?

Meiz said...

"Redonk. I hate the HD schedule that's made 3 weeks in advance."

I'm just happy I don't work in the warehouse. Those dudes have to have ALL of their days off scheduled by January 1st. On top of that, they can't wrap days off around a weekend. It's fucking ridiculous.

El Padrino said...

Most likely h

Aitch said...

Good. I enjoy when you predict the entire league will have a .600 winning percentage.

El Padrino said...

Whenever shit is trending bad for me I always say to myself that it could be worse... I could be a Jets fan.

Meiz said...

"Good. I enjoy when you predict the entire league will have a .600 winning percentage."

It's really an underrated feature of the blog.

El Padrino said...

Haven't done that in years

And its called parity bro

Aitch said...

"And its called parity bro"

Gems

Meiz said...

MORE LIKE PARODY

amirite?

Keef said...

Haven't done that in years



If by years you mean last year, then you are correct.

Keef said...

56 games over .500 last year

Meiz said...

"56 games over .500 last year"

That's reasonable.

El Padrino said...

Is that so?

Keef said...

On Tuesday, fthe first time in Major League Baseball history, all 15 home teams won. Previous high was 12

El Padrino said...

Can we stop with the Rousey / Mayweather nonsense please. Floyd would bury her.

Keef said...

In boxing, yes.

Blue said...

he would bury her in anything

Meiz said...

"On Tuesday, fthe first time in Major League Baseball history, all 15 home teams won. Previous high was 12"

I think it was 11.

Blue said...

might have been 13

Keef said...

I think it was 11.



According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the previous record for most games on a single day in which every home team won was 12, set on May 23, 1914

Meiz said...

I was misinformed.

Blue said...

who gives a shit what it used to be, it's irrelevant, the new number is 15, until that is beaten that's what we'll care about

Aitch said...

It can't be broken unless MLB adds 2 teams

Keef said...

Cap'n Obvious

Blue said...

h must work for hotels.com

tem said...

Doubleheaders could break it

Aitch said...

Good point, Tem. I didn't think of that.

Mike said...

h must work for hotels.com


I'm thinking about doing that part time

/Lp

Meiz said...

Kev, do you ever have any hairy encounters with scorpions?

Keef said...

Knock on wood, but we've never seen one at our house. Almost everyone I know here has had one at some point, but so far we've been lucky

Meiz said...

Dude that lives in the PHX area said on twitter this morning he had one fall out of a vent & get stuck in his dreads once.

Keef said...

Yeah I've heard some crazy stories about them. And the smaller they are the more dangerous they are, apparently

Meiz said...

Mickey D's is closing 184 stores in fiscal 2016. 59 more than they plan on opening. BEAST.

Keef said...

Doubleheaders could break it



Ok numbers guy. Get back to coloring the face of your clock.

Meiz said...

I don't know what that means

Meiz said...

Beef tenderloin & fingerlings for lunch today

Jugdish said...

meatloaf and green beans here

Jugdish said...

Ma! The meatloaf!

Keef said...

Chicken pot pie

Keef said...

Zach Johnson hitting it all over the place today

Meiz said...

$5.99 Brooklyn style pie from Dominos tonight. Mangia!

Keef said...

Rory mcilroy seems like a pretty cool dude

Meiz said...

He gets drunk as hell. I've heard stories of him just passing out in the locker room and getting up for his tee time the next day.

tem said...

That face coloring click is genius

Keef said...

Kid fights going to bed huh?

Meiz said...

Cuts into Tem's Call Of Duty time

Keef said...

Damn shame

tem said...

kid bedtime takes 60 minutes at least from when we walk into that room until she lays down. we've tried all sorts of methods.

Keef said...

Have you tried take her in there, put her in bed, and leave?

Keef said...

That wasn't S. We just did that from the start, though. Sucks at first, but eventually they figure it out.

Keef said...

I'm all for Ferber method. A lot of people aren't.

Meiz said...

"kid bedtime takes 60 minutes at least from when we walk into that room until she lays down. we've tried all sorts of methods."

Rub brandy on her gums.

Meiz said...

Plus she'll have a ecent tolerance built up by college/junior year in HS.

Meiz said...

*decent

Meiz said...

I have a drinking problem.

tem said...

The record for the take her in there and leave is 90 minutes of her screaming.

It's safe to say we've tried all of the top methods the intrawebs kicks out.

We haven't tried the booze idea.

tem said...

Kid hates sleep. Has major FoMO.

Meiz said...

My grandparents used to do the booze thing.

Keef said...

Ha, fomo. We diagnosed csil with that last week

Meiz said...

I have fomo like a motherfucker. I make as many plans for my free time as I can. 4th of July I hit the parade, Mercs games and three different cookouts.

Meiz said...

Jugdish said...

my niece tucks her parents into bed and let's them cry.

tem said...

Ha!

tem said...

That joke made my day already

Keef said...

A+

Meiz said...

"my niece tucks her parents into bed and let's them cry."

Blue said...

"Kid hates sleep"

are you sure she's your kid?

Blue said...

doblue2 doesn't go to bed easily some nights, but she's 5. She comes down stairs, wants some milk, tells us she can't sleep (after lying there for a minute)...etc

i've gotten to the point where i tell her I won't read stories or give her any cookies the next day if she gets out of bed

sometimes that works

Keef said...

This Spieth guy is pretty good

Blue said...

yeah, amazing how he's just always around the top

feels like when tiger was in his heyday.

now do it for 10 straight years

Blue said...

surprised meiz wasn't in line last night to see straight outta compton

Meiz said...

I won't go until at least next weekend.

El Padrino said...

Fucking kids

Pain in the ass

Blue said...

"I won't go until at least next weekend"

i was afraid i'd get shot if i went this weekend

remember when "colors" opened

Meiz said...

remember when "colors" opened


No.

Keef said...

He had to fucking work

Keef said...

yeah, amazing how he's just always around the top


Gonna be cool watching him, Rory, Day, and DJ in majors the next few years

Meiz said...

I wonder if my coworkers ever notice when I'm blatantly adjusting my dick.

Blue said...

"Gonna be cool watching him, Rory, Day, and DJ in majors the next few years"

and Tiger

Keef said...

Well yeah, Tiger too. On Thursdays and Fridays

Keef said...

Dustin Johnson is back to doing Dustin Johnson in majors things

Blue said...

"Dustin Johnson is back to doing Dustin Johnson in majors things"

snorting lines of coke?

Keef said...

Nice weather, Mize

Keef said...

snorting lines of coke?


May explain why his 60 yard approach from the fairway flew the green

Meiz said...

"Nice weather, Mize"


Another satisfied customer

Blue said...

retard

Meiz said...

60 yard shots are hard to hit. Half wedges suuuck.

ns

Keef said...

Yeah he probably never practices that shot

tem said...

He should practice it

Meiz said...

"Yeah he probably never practices that shot"

Hardest shot in golf, hands down.

When I was good, I practiced it all the time. Once in a while, you miss. it happens.

Aitch said...

Did you just compare yourself to pro golfers?

Meiz said...

Fuck outta here, H.

Meiz said...

It's a hard shot for anybody that has decent yardages on their wedges.

Aitch said...

So you did. Got it.

Meiz said...

Show me a comparison.

I'll wait.

Keef said...

When I was good, I practiced it all the time. Once in a while, you miss. it happens.


"Good". Hahahahahahaha I forgot these guys are only good.

Those guys hit 1000 shots a day. It's not like he only hit it 30 feet from the hole. He missed the green completely.

Meiz said...

Right. Every one of those dudes are waaaayyyyyy better than good, and that shit still happens to them. That's the point, champ.

tem said...

I've never done it and I'm terrible.

Keef said...

Mize, your comment was saying that shit is hard for you, so it's also hard for them. That's a comparison

Keef said...

Champ

Keef said...

congrats Mize

Aitch said...

"Mize, your comment was saying that shit is hard for you, so it's also hard for them. That's a comparison"

^^^

Meiz said...

No, it's hard for EVERYONE. My buddy who plays to a 3 handicap dreads that shot.

Meiz said...

Goddamn, you people are the worst sometimes.

Keef said...

Those guys beat 3 handicaps by at least 10 shots

Keef said...

And I never said it was an easy shot. Just that they shouldn't completely miss the green.

Aitch said...

Well if it sometimes happens to Meiz, then it can sometimes happen to pros.

Jugdish said...

the meiz character is getting out of control. we need andy back.

Meiz said...

"Well if it sometimes happens to Meiz, then it can sometimes happen to pros."

What in the fuck is wrong with you?

Jugdish said...

What in the fuck is wrong with you?"

Aitch said...

"What in the fuck is wrong with you?"

"When I was good, I practiced it all the time. Once in a while, you miss. it happens."

Just going with what you said, man.

Busy at work. Dealing with some extreme bullshit with our Merchandising department.

Keef said...

Ah. Your Twitter and Facebook posts must have been done using the time masheen

Meiz said...

Disappointing raise this year. Only 2.5%. Gotta do better in FY16

Meiz said...

"Ah. Your Twitter and Facebook posts must have been done using the time masheen"

I didn't realize I was all over facebook & twitter today.

Meiz said...

H is still wrong.

Meiz said...

"Well if it sometimes happens to Meiz, then it can sometimes happen to pros."


LOOK AT THE ACCURACY.

You guys are bad at reading.

Meiz said...

Great at creating your own narratives, though. I'll give you that.

tem said...

H already won.

tem said...

It's understandable for LOV to rank behind twitter and Facebook.

tem said...

My reader is a pro. She says H definitely won. She also says golf is dumb.

Meiz said...

You can win and still be wrong. See Walker, Scott.

Jugdish said...

El Padrino said...

Everyone still play fantasy footyball?

tem said...

I only fanduel

tem said...

Leagues have too many morons you have to deal with all season. Every year it's a different kind of bullshit.

Fanduel is 1 week leagues, no morons to deal with. Injuries only fuck you 1 week at most. Don't need to worry about the guy with 8 receivers and no rbs not trading with you or sending a bullshit trade to his friend.

tem said...

I'm very pro fanduel because fuck other people.

Jugdish said...

I'm very pro fanduel because fuck other people


get off my lawn!

Jugdish said...

Everyone still play fantasy footyball?


I cut back from 3 to 2 leagues this year.

Keef said...

I still do, but I passed my commissionership to someone else. No time for that shit

Blue said...

i'm playing in one league

one i've been in for years...mostly good dudes and i just show up and win

Meiz said...

"Everyone still play fantasy footyball?"

Of course. I'm our commish.

Meiz said...

We tried to expand to 12 teams this year, and the two fucktards who signed up had to drop out because they didn't realize they couldn't make the draft.

Keef said...

Do they have to practice their 60 yard wedge instead?

Meiz said...

They don't play golf

Keef said...

So sometimes it can happen to them

Jugdish said...

The dump reportedly contains more than 15,000 US military and governmental email addresses, according to one researcher. According to a leaked document that was posted here, there are “6,788 us.army.mil addresses, another 1,665 navy.mil ones, and 809 usmc.mil.”


you've got to be pretty dumb to use your .mil email account to sign up for Ashley Madison.

Keef said...

you've got to be pretty dumb to sign up for Ashley Madison.

How was it

El Padrino said...

Serious how was it.

El Padrino said...

Can you post about it. Thanks and regards.

El Padrino said...

Pics or it never happened

/AITCH

Aitch said...

I don't need pics of that

tem said...

Took about 25 minutes once I got in the room.

Wierd steps all through the process. Like had to put numbing agent on my sack before I left the house. So I drove there with numb nuts...literally.

They give you a local anesthetic which you kind of feel.

They hold on to the tubes which you feel. Doesn't hurt but is wierd as fuck.

Once local anesthesia kicks in you don't feel much.

They cauterize the area as they work so eventually you smell burning flesh.

I drove myself home no problem.

Once home you are sore but not in pain. It's wierd. I walk around gingerly but I'm not in pain....well maybe a little sore.

After care is odd. They give you some pain med and anti-inflammatory but that's normal. They say no ejaculations for a week. And then you have to ejaculate at least 15 times over the following 11 weeks. Then you get to take a sample to the lab. They check for swimmers. After 2 samples that are swimmer free they declare it a success.

tem said...

They advise you wear a jock strap or tighty whites for a week.

Can't lift over 15 lbs for 2 days.

Procedure was fine but mostly wierd...small talk with the guy sawing tubes in your nuts is awkward.

Again some pain during procedure but really only when doctor was squeezing the sperm tubes.

tem said...

Probably tmi

Keef said...

And then you have to ejaculate at least 15 times over the following 11 weeks



Typical Saturday afternoon for LP

tem said...

Well I think technically you might be able to wait 11 weeks and not ejaculate that much but I'm not sure. They were a little vague. I'm shooting for 15. Need to get cmtem on board.

Meiz said...

"Typical Saturday afternoon for LP"

Literally loled

Meiz said...

What's this procedure cost? Does insurance pay for any of it?

tem said...

Out of pocket for me was $167 something.

Aitch said...

Signs that we're getting old. We used to talk about sports and women, and now we're talking about Tem getting snipped.
