I still contend the strangest part of the night had to be jen's roommate showing up

Jay on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 2:32 PM

Yeah, that was kind of bizzare. I'm glad she helped clean up. However, it took us all of about ten minutes to destroy the kitchen again. Happy New Year!

jen on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 6:00 PM

Well, she was invited. And you guys were hospitable ambassadors of the city just like Douglas promised.

jen on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 6:01 PM

But I do have some fabulous video of Jay, Cuban and Joe singing "bailamos"

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 6:02 PM

I was passed out by then. What time did Douglas leave?

Phil on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 6:14 PM

Well, her showing up wasn't weird. It was just that she walked in and went to work cleaning without hesitation. That was quite unexpected.

douglas on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 7:21 PM

i left about 4am, i think we set a new record for number of people that puked, i think it was six, so that was good. pre-midnight that was probably one of the best new year's parties. post-midnight, shit just got ugly

Wrecking Crew on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 7:28 PM

Isn't that the same as every year? Things are good and fun prior to midnight, and then we get really drunk and stupid post midnight.

Phil on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 10:06 PM

Hockey Laura and friend say they had a great time, from what they can remember...

Brent on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 10:19 PM

Anybody go to trivia today? I've been watching crappy bowl games today, what's up with this high powered Hawaii offense?

Brock on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 at 10:45 PM

I'm pretty glad I went to the UC-UofL basketball game today.

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 7:54 AM

House actually cleaned up pretty easy. Maid service still sounds good for future years.

Someone puked in the basement, anybody want to claim this? If someone owns up to this we are at 7.

I couldn't tell if the house smelled or was it me.

My memory gets get fuzzy shortly after figuring out how to turn on the heater in the tent. I like scrolling through Cuban's pictures and seeing what time it is and the progression of the level of drunkeness.

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:07 AM

your house smelled, it was't just you

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:13 AM

i particularly liked the puke on the front porch and watching people slip in it as they went down the steps

jen on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:31 AM

gross.

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:32 AM

I tried to clean it off but the water froze and my porch is a sheet of ice. Chris brought his dog over yesterday when we were cleaning and the dog was eating random stuff off the floor. That was gross.

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:43 AM

and wes, having a drinking contest at 3am is never a good idea, especially when both parties involved are already stumbling

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:52 AM

Wes having a drinking contest is never a good idea ever

Jerome on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 9:18 AM

The Winter Classic was one of the of the best hockey games I've seen in a while. If it wasn't for all the crappy bowl games, I would've missed it ...

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 9:53 AM

My liver hurts. Anyone want to try and kill the keg this weekend?

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 9:57 AM

First of all, drunk ass woman suggested the drinking contest. I already sensed the train wreck and just figured I'd help it out a little more. I kind of felt bad for her because she was pissed at Burket for something (crazy, I know). I told her to basically walk away from yelling at Chris and was trying to calm her emotional self down which somehow she interpretted that I was trying to kick her out of the party, WTF?

Regardless, like Mad Max style, 2 people enter, 1 person leaves or we both puke. I don't know, but I do know after the 2nd shot of whiskey, I puked in my mouth and swallowed it back down. At that point, I knew I was fucked but if you break a deal, you face the wheel. Puking was the only logical idea at that point.

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 10:04 AM

I had a ceremony yesterday to add Sara and Hockey Laura to the list of pukers on the fridge. It was a glorious event.

Wes, I don't know how you ate cold chili New Years morning. I just ate some chili for lunch and I think I am going to spew.

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 1:59 PM

the mike tirico show is doing a bucket list for sports. It is kind of like a 30 before 30 thing (hey a bunch of you all will be 30 this year). So far they have:

1. Day 1 NCAA tourney call in sick and get hammered at a sport's bar
2. Scalp tickets for stupid money
3. Fool around at a stadium
4. Run a marathon
5. Go to Vegas and make sports bet
6. Drive a racecar
7. Go to a Super Bowl
8. Coach a son or daughter’s sports team
9. Go to the big stadiums: Fenway, Wrigley,Yankee, MSG, Notre Dame, Lambeau

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 3:03 PM

joe, you'll like this. apparently amber, the girl i work with who went to GBITT, did enjoy herself and nobody offended her too bad, which is good i guess. joe did make quite an impression when she walked in and didn't know anybody. apparently joe went up, asked her who she was, and repeatedly said "I don't know you, why are you here? Do you want a drink?"

Barry on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 3:23 PM

If LSU wins next week and splits the title with USC again, there will be riots on the streets of Baton Rouge and New Orleans...probably Athens and Norman as well.
http://collegefootball.rivals.com/c....asp?CID=756856

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 3:37 PM

I really don't remember anything much past getting the heater on in the tent and Just Like Joe started playing. I didn't even know your coworker showed up until you said something about it yesterday. I have a history of blacking out on Jager.

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 3:41 PM

i know, i didn't think you did, that's why i thought you might appreciate it. she mentioned how you and i tended to yell a lot as well when we spoke

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 3:43 PM

barry, if there's any justice, LSU will destroy Ohio State and emphatically once again prove no big ten team deserved to be in any BCS game, b/c Illinois sure as hell didn't

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 3:58 PM

Michigan completely manhandled Florida, that game wasn't even as close as the score suggested it was.

Barry on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 4:07 PM

did any of you catch the Gameday crew's postRose-Bowl analysis? I wouldn't go so far as to say the gloves were off, but they were noticably frustrated with the current BCS system. Herbstreit called the whole thing asinine and Fowler not only called out the Pac-10 commish for wanting to maintain the status quo, but told USC fans that they should be bitchin at him. While I disliked Corso's assertion that the championship game will not have the 2 best teams in the country in it (his top 2 were OU and USC), I was happy to see them so openly critical of the system.

Phil on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 4:16 PM

Chris Redman, NFC offensive player of the week
http://www.atlantafalcons.com/News/...f_the_Week.aspx

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 4:38 PM

barry, i did see it, and you're right about what they said, of course that was only when they took their mouths off of USC's cocks. but nevertheless, they were frustrated. USC shouldn't be glorified for their win, though, as much as Illinois should be put in its place for undeserving of a BCS shot, same for Hawaii, although they were undefeated, so I'll more understanding of their inclusion. Missouri made a case for being in the BCS by thumping Arkansas, but even they were way overmatched for an unranked Arkansas team playing w/o its head coach and a future #1 draft pick with no motivation. the problem with the system is USC and Georgia have extremely legitimate cases for the NC, and so will the winner of the OSU-LSU game. Hell GA was ranked higher than LSU (before the SEC championsnip) and didn't lose, same as OSU, and they didn't make it

douglas on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 4:40 PM

assuming OK wins convincingly, they'll have a legit case as well

Phil on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 4:48 PM

Our office smells like burning

Brent on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 5:50 PM

I say keep the four BCS bowl games and then play the BCS national championship from the two winners of the four bowls the following week.

Barry on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 6:20 PM

I'm in an intersting position, because to some degree, my team is the benefactor of the system. Douglas you nailed it though, the choice should not have to be made by voters as to what teams should play for the championship. UGA, USC, and OU all have legit claims as do LSU and OSU (we could even extend this to VT) and its bs that the teams don't get to decide for themselves. So I have no problem with the statement that any of the above mentioned teams should have a chance to play, my beef comes to anyone that says LSU should not be playing. I am biased, but name one team that has beaten more ranked opponents than the Bayou Bengals (what we did right). Or name another team that went the entire season without getting waxed or losing to a team with a losing record (what we didn't do wrong).

Jay on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 7:36 PM

Joe, I left my contact stuff under the sink in the bathroom. I'll get it this weekend.

adrian on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:25 PM

I drank a lot on New Years but i actually felt pretty good the next day, minus the headache. And Joe, your TV room smelled like Ass the next morning.

To Football:

A healthy LSU team is the best team in the nation in my humble opinion.

I would have liked to have seen USC and Georgia plan in a BCS game. That would have been a great game to watch.

Also, i really enjoyed watching Colt Brennan get his fucking head knocked off. I am sick and tired of seeing those piece of shit conferences in BCS games. I don't give a flying fuck if they were undefeated. I hate those god damn pussy conferences and they have no reason for being in any of the star studded bowl games.

adrian on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 8:26 PM

USC and Georgia play *

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 9:17 PM

The smells are slowly starting to go away. I keep finding random vomit spots. I found a second downstairs. I went to do some laundry tonight and that was foul. I had towels soaked in vomit just sitting around. I nearly puked doing laundry. I really like the idea of maid service and dry cleaning.

joe on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 9:25 PM

The smell was not completely the room but a combonation of the room and the people in the room.

Another idea for next new years is to get mike rowe from dirty jobs to make an appearance.

Brock on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 9:32 PM

I certainly enjoyed Jen's pictures and I'll get Michelle to post hers (there are over 130 since apparently I went nuts with the camera). As much as I thought I wasn't that drunk, the videos certainly disprove that.

The evening was going awesome and climaxed with the karaoke in the living room until Joe totally went downhill and started sloshing beer all over the place including the TV. I recommended to Chris that he keep Joe from brining beer into the room, but that escalated to booting EVERYONE from the room and bringing the hate. This initiated the argument with Laura and the Wes-Thunderdome event.

Question: Was this the 1st time the cops were called? Glad Wes was already dead by then.

Jay on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 10:02 PM

first time for new years, yes.

Jay on Wednesday, January 02, 2008 at 10:14 PM

Can I get a ruling on this - Is this a green light for incest or is it just gross?

Jay on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 8:42 AM

I think the grossest part is that Milo Ventimiglia is 12 years older than Hayden Panetierre. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

Phil on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 11:41 AM

I didn't catch this during the game last night, but the announcers were talking about WVU's dingle-berry. I had a "louisville's wood blasts between wvu dingle-berrys" joke all lined up earlier this year, but instead WVU smothered our backfiend with their dingle-berrys all night long

Anyone interested in going to Paoli friday night?

Jay on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:02 PM

I told Joe I'd help him kill the keg.

joe on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:12 PM

Skiing does sound like fun. Perfect North is better then Paoli, but skiing is a blast anyways. Let me know more. Cuban, me, Joanna and her sisters were planning to go to Perfect North later this winter.

I think the plan is to try and kill the keg Saturday for the UL-UK game or something like that.

douglas on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:25 PM

i've never been skiing, i want to go there. Joe, here's a blast from the past, I'm currently emailing Jeff Ames back and forth. I joined YPAL b/c I get a discount on tuition for grad school last summer, I needed something from them, and it turns out he's an officer or something. he started going on about st. matthews LL, and i told him he wouldn't believe how much we still talk about it

joe on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:35 PM

yep, he was my age. I see him everywhere but I've never actually talked to him since LL probably. He works downtown so I see him at lunch all the time, he plays in my basketball league at MAVA, he was at Brendan's Saturday night rocking the tux.

joe on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:39 PM

young professionals association of Louisville...do any of us really fit in with that? We should start a Natty Sci chapter.

douglas on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:52 PM

i bet our chapter could beat their chapter up

douglas on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:53 PM

yeah, he works at Fifth Third bank downtown, he's engaged, that poor bastard, so young and innocent

douglas on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Jay on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 3:57 PM

Douglas, you're so full of shit.

Barry on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 4:05 PM

Stewart Mandel' mailbag
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20....bag/index.html
Stewart -- did I miss something? Since when does beating Arizona State and Illinois get you crowned likely national champs and the hottest team in college football? Oh, I forgot ... USC was the only team with injuries this season. Do you crown these guys too?
--Dustin, Lake Charles, La.

No, I'm as puzzled by the continued USC infatuation as you are. Even before the Rose Bowl beatdown of Illinois, there seemed to be a huge segment of the public and media that still believed the Trojans were the best team in the country, despite almost no tangible evidence to support that. This is a team that beat two -- I repeat, two -- teams with winning records during the entire regular season and lost to a team (Stanford) that finished the year 4-8.

Yes, I understand USC -- and John David Booty in particular -- was banged up in that game. You know who else suffered a boatload of injuries this season? Oregon. The Ducks were playing without three of their top four receivers and their No. 2 tailback when they beat the Trojans on Oct. 27. If you want to argue that USC could have won the national championship if it had stayed healthy, I'd counter that they might not even have won the Pac-10 had Dennis Dixon stayed healthy.

No question, USC, once healthy, was one of the top teams in the country by the end of the season, but there are still at least three other teams -- Ohio State, LSU and Georgia -- I'm more impressed with based on their seasons as a whole. As far as I can tell, the continued perception held by those who still believe USC as the top team in the country is based primarily on their track record (six straight seasons of at least 11 wins is pretty darn impressive) and the fact the Trojans were picked as such before the season. (Which is itself amusing, considering all the complaints I hear about preseason polls).

The fact is, USC did not look remotely like the No. 1 team in the country until the 11th game of its season, Thanksgiving night against Arizona State, and the Sun Devils wound up getting crushed by the two other best teams (Oregon with Dixon and Texas) it faced. The Trojans then beat up on what we figured all along would be an overmatched Illinois team. If you want to ignore their first 10 games and anoint them based on their final three, be my guest, but I personally tend to favor those who show consistency over a slightly longer period

joe on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 7:05 PM

Phil, were you serious about skiing? I really will go.

joe on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 7:33 PM

Jay, I have no clue what happened while I was at work but I came home and my backdoor was unlocked and partially open and your contact stuff was not on the kitchen table where I put it. I asked mark when he got home and we found your contact stuff in the backyard. Anyone have any explanations?

Jay on Thursday, January 03, 2008 at 9:02 PM

That's creepy. Neighbor hood kids?

Phil on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 12:45 AM

Joe, I think Amela and I may head up to Paoli tomorrow (Friday) night and embarrass ourselves trying to snowboard.

douglas on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 8:34 AM

snowboarding is ungodly hard

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 8:37 AM

I heard it is harder to learn then skiing but once you learn it it is easier then skiing

Jay on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 11:55 AM

I can't go, my mom is in the hospital. (nothing too serious, just pneumonia)

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 12:28 PM

Colin Cowherd on ESPN radio was just talking about the women rating scale. He was saying if you are dating a 5 in Milwaukee and you move to Tampa you won’t be dating her anymore because you can’t find 5’s there. In Phoenix they passed a legislature saying anything under an 8 isn’t allowed to go out.

My concern is that if a girl is an 8 in Phoenix is she an 8 in Milwaukee? I’m picturing a bell shaped curve for the plot of women. Is there one giant plot for all women or is there an area adjustment for the region?

douglas on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 12:34 PM

there's an adjustment, i won't name names online, but think Bellarmine. Girls that weren't really that hot seemed to receive legendary status there. Some of these same girls couldn't get the time of day at UK

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 12:43 PM

you take an average girl. Put her with a bunch of hot girls she looks bad, put her with a bunch of ugly girls she is hot. Either way she is still average making her a 5 or 6. Yes relatively she looks better or worse, but I'm saying her ranking of a 5 or 6 will be consistent.

Wrecking Crew on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 12:53 PM

I thik he's saying that the scale changes with the city. I agree that overall the ranking should stay the same, but he's trying to say that different cities have different levels of hotness. That seems like it would be better understood if it were a constant ranking and not one that varies with the city. On the other hand, like Douglas said, if your scope is small enough, then your ranking system will be biased, sort of like the difference between accurate and precise.

douglas on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:15 PM

you used bigger words, but yes, that's what i meant. i go to calvert city where my mom's family is, and they pretty much don't get to big cities much. i've talked to my cousins about people they're dating or whatever, and they say they're hot, but they're not at all, or at least not what i would coin as 'hot'. i can't even begin to say how many times i heard guys talk about particular girls at Bellarmine like they were Pam Anderson or something, but when that's all you see everyday, your scope changes as do your perspectives on levels of hotness. Colin Cowherd was right in that an 8 in Wisconsin is probably not more than a 6 in Florida

douglas on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:16 PM

i had many discussions of this nature in college with fellow man whores

Wrecking Crew on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:17 PM

It's all pink on the inside, though.

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:20 PM

Well said. Chris, did you invite anyone else over for the UL game tomorrow? Cuban invited a few people.

Marc on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:20 PM

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:23 PM

Marc on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:40 PM

Adrian, I know where you live. don't think I won't come over, punch you in the face, take all your good shit, and your mom's phone number.

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:47 PM

The "i know where you live" doesn't work as well with Adrian anymore because he finally left his parent's house, unlike Brody.

Barry on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 1:49 PM

The phenomenon you refer to is what we call "Percy Goggles." After having been on the R.V. Percy Viasco (a boat) for 3 weeks, my friend Jerry eyeballed some pretty unattractive ladies "three-toothed cashiers and shit". The effects are reversible as after seeing SEC coeds for a week, he was back to normal. I imagine that this effect goes the other way as well. If you had a job working with models all day a girl that we might consider a solid 8 might only be a 6 to you "the Heidi Klum Effect."

Bigworm on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 2:09 PM

Joe you experienced this first hand when you visited New York. Remember, no hot girls there because you are probably use to seeing some southern belles down in these parts.

joe on Friday, January 04, 2008 at 2:15 PM

You hear about people moving to New Yourk to be models and those bitches were ugly. They all looked like they aged twice as fast and looked worn out. I guess that has a lot to do with our slow lifestyles down here in the country.

joe on Sunday, January 06, 2008 at 4:46 PM

I agree. The last time I was at Perfect North was the best time skiing ever because it was snowing while we were there. It is so much easier skiing on real snow and not as painful to fall. That fake snow turns into ice in no time at all and it gets extremely fast and hard. I'm still very sore today.

Bigworm on Sunday, January 06, 2008 at 6:23 PM

My vote if for T-Will simply because he doesn't know that he is an ass clown. I think the other two realize it.

Brock - UK is terrible this year, plain and simple. We have a serious upgrade in talent coming in next year over existing players so the future will be just fine. UK will miss out on the NCAA tourney this year (only way in is if we win the SEC tourney for the auto bid) and Next year will be better, but we will still struggle because 2 out of our 4 scorers on the team graduate. I really don't see UK being better till 2009, but by 2010 recruiting will have gone better and our talent level will be a huge upgrade, and I believe we will be back to how UK should be playing by 2010 season.

joe on Sunday, January 06, 2008 at 7:49 PM

I think getting rid of your scorers of Bradley and Crawford will help. They can score but they are too inconsistent and are very detrimental to the team. Patterson will only get better and will be a stud. If the current guys believe in Gillespie's style unlike Crawford and Bradley UK will be good again.

anyone else watching American Gladiators. Seems I've seen two kinda unfair scenarios.
(1) One girl gets hurt during a challenge and has to be replaced. the replacement has to take her measly two points against the other competitor who did better without getting hurt and got 6 points.
(2) A Gladiator gets hurt during the rings and one competitor just blows right past him. they replace the Gladiator for the next guy, who of course gets taken down.

Bradley thinks T-Will is an ass clown as well. An excerpt from Jody Demling's blog.

“The big guy had a wide-open layup, and I was just trying to make a good, hard foul and not let him get the basket,” Bradley said. “I tried to help him up, even, after the play was over. The guy, No. 1, he just came in and acted like a clown, and Joe (Crawford) had my back.

“I just tried to get us to walk away from it. We couldn’t afford anything else bad to go wrong.”

joe on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 9:39 AM

That is what I read before I made that statement.

If you watch the Rick Pitino show and they show off the court clips of T-Will I really think he might have a mental handicap. He really is not all there. I'm not trying to be funny, I really think there is somethng wrong.

I was watching the Gillispie show the other day and he is a total ass. I mean I know the season is shot but he did not say anything positive at all even when he was being lead into saying something nice. He basically blamed the losses on Bradley and Crawford saying they had good individual games but no leadership which is true but do you need to flame them in the media? Also when the host was saying something nice about Coury and leading Billy G to say something nice, he remarked on how he doesn't have a lot of athletic ability but he can be in the right place at the right time, which is important...Im thinking dude, throw a fucking bone.

douglas on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 12:48 PM

no offense was meant, just trying to make a joke

as for gillispie, acie law said in an interview that playing for gillispie for a year and a half was completely unbearable and he wanted to quit a ton of times. but now, he has more respect for him than any other coach in the nation, and of course law turned out to be a damn good player. gillispie knows this season is tanked, he won't admit it, but he knows it. he also knows that bradley and crawford aren't conforming to his system, and there's no other player on the team that can lead them with those two still around. he's pushing every player to their limits, and basically establishing dominance this first year. most coaches do this, he's trying to find out who really wants to be there, and weeding out those that don't, or those that he's waiting to weed out on purpose. for instance, alex legion, after he left, BG basically said good riddance, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out. my high school basketball coach was like this, a total pain in the ass at first. by my second year, he was still hard on us, but he showed us a lot of respect for sticking around, and to this day he ranks as the best coach i've had in any sport i've played. for the record, he's since left waggener to coach at ballard and has won at least two state championships

No I am not looking but Abby is looking.

She is looking for a manager of finanacial reporting, controller, probably not experienced enough for a director position but would look at it.

I know churchhill downs has a manager of financial reporting position that opened up, and I have been checking out various search engines but didn't know if you knew of anything that might not be posted just yet.

Bigworm on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 3:10 PM

we're working on that churchill downs order i think, tell her to get her resume together and I'll give it to my boss, who recruits the upper level positions. she can apply to CD on her own, but I know of one controller role that just opened up that hasn't been posted we started working on today, and I'm sure there are a few others. She's been in public accounting since she graduated hasn't she? She'll be a real good candidate. Those candidates are like gold to some companies, accountants that have been in public 4-5 years and looking for a better work-life balance.

Bigworm on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 3:55 PM

Abby has 6 years experience at Ernst and Young (Big 4 Accounting firm) and is now a manager (executive level) with them. I think she already sent her resume to ChurchHill Downs and I found another one that was with a local insurance firm (didn't give the name). Actually, I have found probably about 5 or so that I sent to her. Not sure if she is wanting to leave just yet, but right now she only has 1 in town client (Norton Hospital) and she doesn't want to constantly travel around with AJ being here now.

I guess if they fix her schedule she will stay, and if not, she will leave.

joe on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 4:00 PM

I just had one of our bosses threaten to call my mom.

So tomorrow our managers are having a retreat so they put out an email saying who is in charge tomorrow and it was this lady with 40 years at the VA who knows my grandpa from working with him at the VA and my mom from when she worked at social security back in the day. Cat went and joked with her about being in charge and she told Cat to tell me that "If I hear any lip from Joe tell him I am calling his mom." The thing is I think she really would. I have to be on my best behavior tomorrow or I am in big trouble.

douglas on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 4:08 PM

wes, the only thing i'd warn her about, which comes up almost every time someone from public accounting leaves to go to the private sector, is that 9 times out of 10 they have to take a pay cut initially. i have no idea where she's at right now or where she wants to be, but we always have to break it down to public accountants like this, they want to leave public b/c of the long hours, especially during tax season, but they want the same amount of money. Most of the time when you break down the actual total number of hours they'd be working in private, and break their pay up on an hourly basis, it's better. Most accountants just get used to making a certain level, and can't accept coming down from that number on an annual basis.

douglas on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 4:12 PM

if she's serious about leaving though, she's exactly the kind of candidate we can work with easily

Bigworm on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 4:33 PM

Douglas - I completely understand what you are saying, but she knows where people less qualified than her have landed Director positions at PharmAmerica or managerial positions at YUM or manager/director of internal audit positions at banks, etc...from her office and they received substantial pay raises to leave. The thing with her is she does work a lot, but they get awesome raises each year if you perform well. Well a bad raise for Abby is 10%.

I think the pay is all just depending on how well qualified the candidate is and the company hiring the person. If she wants a new job all she has to do is call her ex-boss (ex-partner at E&Y) and she could start tomorrow if she wanted to, but they are regional and wouldn't really fix her travel schedule.

Abby is serious for the right position with the right company, other than that I think she might be bitching. She never looks for jobs though, and she has started looking the past week.

douglas on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 4:57 PM

You're right about the bonuses, they're not comparable at private firms. As well as the raises. That's what I mean as part of the total annual pay. Yum only hires people from public accounting, but the part about substantial raises confuses me a little, b/c I know some orders we've worked on where that's been a problem with them, not wanting to pay as much as they were making in public. As for Pharmerica, she does not want to go to work there. They just went public and do not have their shit together at all. We get all kinds of resumes from people that are there now looking to leave b/c it's just a mess over there. If you all have questions in general about some of the main companies in town I can tell you about them and how they are to work for.

Brent on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 5:06 PM

I dated a girl who was a CPA at Yum, jesus she worked long hours. And when the end of the quarter came it was like 12 to 14 hour days. I don't know if it was she was the boss of that division or whatever but it was crazy. Not to say she didn't get paid, I think with bonuses she was making close to six figures if not six figures.

Bigworm on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 5:16 PM

PharmAmerica - The Director of Finance is an ex E&Y employee that we know personally. No way in hell would Abby work under this person considering they did not pass the CPA exam and wasn't technically a manager at E&Y when this person got this job. Abby's friend Melissa audits PharmAmerica and deals with this retard on a daily basis....poor Melissa. This person, was also wanting to give manager status to a person at E&Y who had about 3 years experience because I think he/she realizes that no well qualified person is going to work directly under him/her. And you are right, not only did they go public, but that company was the merger of two pretty large companies in itself (Kindred and something else). Granted, it would be a pretty sweet gig once they are established, however, with this fuck tard as captain I'd make sure my life jacket was buckled and my office was closest to the life boats.

Bigworm on Monday, January 07, 2008 at 5:19 PM

I know of two people at YUM (director level and manager level). The director level guy was a senior manager at E&Y, and if I had to guess he probably makes $125-160K, and the manager is probably in the $100K pay area. All I know is, the manager said that he asked for a certain salary because he didn't think they would say yes to it, and they did. He said as he was evaluating things, that he asked for what it would take him to get out of public accounting because of the raises and potential better/bigger jobs you will land in the near future. Typically, the longer you stay in public accounting, the higher on the corporate food chain you start.

A coworker's brother sent out this email entitled

"Yes, I'm saying it, "Unfair for Ohio State!" and "Don't tell me they're slow!;" plus, deserved kudos for OSU" to OSU fans that said:

1. According to ESPN and the Fox pre-game show, the Ohio State football team treated their week in New Orleans leading up to the game like a "business trip," doing things like studying film to prepare for the game and not leaving their hotel. This may have been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all those boys to party for a week in New Orleans that they'll never have again, and for what? That's just not fair.

2. THE Ohio State football players have been unfairly labeled "slow" and "overrated" ever since they were run out of Glendale by Florida last year. Unfair and not true. It's the rest of their competition they play all year that's slow and overrated. What's Ohio State to do after gorging themselves on a schedule that includes the Big eleven, MAC, and Div. I-AA opponents (which, some in their conference actually manage to beat) all year? It's not that Ohio State is slow or bad, they're just not used to playing that level of competition and when they do, they're confused by all the quality out there on the field. That's unfair.

Hopefully, the NCAA will throw them a bone by matching them with an ACC team next year (I know Wake Forest and Georgia Tech are in the South, but surely....).

In all seriousness, congratulations to OSU are in order, for:
1. winning the alumni-field goal-kicking contest at halftime
AND
2. having the better band.......perhaps it's their curious male baton-twirler that earns them their self-labeled distinction as "Best Damn Band in the Land" (or is that "best WITH a male baton-twirler?"). I'd REALLY hate to be that guy, by the way, IN a college town, out on his (fraternity's?) front lawn, practicing his baton twirling moves.......I mean, do you wear a wig or a mask while doing that or what?

I thought it was hilarious

Wrecking Crew on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 9:13 AM

It's fucking retarded. Georgia drops going into the bowl season then jumps a couple spots after beating a crap Hawaii team. USC over Illinois who cares? WVU and KU probably had the best bowl showings. Yet another reason for a playoff. I've seen a couple articles where a seeded final four was somewhat being considered. Still issues with the Rose Bowl, PAC10, Big10, but at least they're considering talking about it. A 4 week, 16 team tournament would be best I think.

douglas on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 9:31 AM

douglas on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 9:47 AM

and go sec, #1 and #2! OSU did not belong in that game last night, there were only 2 big plays that kept the score somewhat reasonable as opposed to a huge blowout like last year, one was the 80 yard TD run, which was a good play. The second was the INT return for a TD, which Flynn and the receiver just fucked up and ran different routes. If Flynn had thrown the right place, the receiver was wide open for another first down. Other than that, OSU couldn't run their offense to save their life, and their "#1" defense couldn't think about contain LSU

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 9:48 AM

Chris UGA didn't drop heading into the bowl season, UT beat them earlier in the year and they actually tied with UT in the east division, but UT had the tie breaker so they played in the SEC championship game.

Georgia lost to South Carolina and to UT in the year and then ran off 6 straight and beating the likes of Florida, Auburn, and Kentucky (yes the team that beat #1 LSU and beat the only other team to beat LSU).

After completely dismantling Hawaii like they were a team of high schoolers, Georgia finishes the season on a 7 game win.

Every BCS affiliated conference should have a conference championship game. If not, the champion of the SEC should be the national champion.

joe on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:17 AM

Colin Cowherd made a great analogy. Lets compare SEC and Big 10 football. It is like the ladies there. You look in the stands and the elite of the Big 10 are hot, so are the SEC. The SEC just has a resevoir of these hotties. The Big 10 hotties stand out more because of their competition. The SEC is fine ass everywhere.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:19 AM

Wow, I am actually giving Colin Cowherd a thumbs up.

adrian on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:20 AM

Corso is the biggest douchebag around. At least Kirk Herbstreit gave LSU recognition and props for being the best.

This happens every year. A team makes it to the National Game and gets beat and everyone starts saying that the team that got beat didn't deserve to be there.

Lets say if USC or Georgia would have played OSU and got beat. Then everyone would say that they didn't deserve to be there because USC got beat by Stanford and Georgia didn't even win their conference. It will never end.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:23 AM

Well maybe they should have pitted OSU and Hawaii, OSU only had 1 loss and Hawaii was undefeated. Sure, if we want to settle who sucks more.

adrian on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:27 AM

OSU is a great team and i will stand by that statement. No one will be able to convice me otherwise.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:34 AM

Adrian I am just fucking around. OSU has the best winning percentage of any team except USC in the past 6 yeras and has been in the national championship game 3 of the last 6 years.

Jay on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:36 AM

But you can't say the big ten had a great year. I think most people are down on OSU because they are the Patriots of the BCS.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:37 AM

Nope, Patriots win.

douglas on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:37 AM

OSU didn't deserve to start the season in the top 15, they never deserved their #1 ranking, they never deserved to get it back at the end of the year when their season was over and everyone else had to play championships for their conference, and they sure as hell never deserved to play for the NC, for now 2 years in a row. been saying it all year long, not just now that they lost

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:41 AM

Bullshit, that OSU-Michigan game was a hell of a game last year. And basically that same Michigan team destroyed Florida (yes different florida team but still very good) in their bowl game this year. Look I don't like Big Ten football at all, too boring for my taste, but OSU deserved to be there. Of the BCS conferences, they were the only team with 1 loss, sometimes you have to just survive. But it didn't matter, whoever else you line up next to OSU, would have had 2 losses (USC, UGA, LSU, WVU).

joe on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:44 AM

I've heard OSU being referred to as the Buffalo Bills of college football and we won't have this problem again till next year when OSU destroys the competition in the Big 1 I mean Big 10

joe on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:49 AM

Best competition OSU faces all year is themselves in practice, until the bowl games.

douglas on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 10:50 AM

i don't mind OSU at all, i love their school, they have great parties. columbus is a good town to visit, lots of good looking girls. i don't hate OSU, they were just so blatantly overrated this year, all year long, it wasn't even funny. They got handled by Illinois at home, and as USC proved, Illinois didn't belong in the Rose Bowl. Okay, yes, OSU did deserve to be there last year, their loss to Florida just sullied their entire year before. But not this year. As for Michigan this year, their game vs. Florida, they didn't play that well this entire year, I chalk that one up to playing for their coach's last game. They played damn well against Florida in their bowl, if they played like that during the year, they would've destroyed OSU and probably win the Big Ten. That was an emotional game for them

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Michigan was also hurt all year.

OSU was overrated this year. Did they deserve a BCS game, yes...national championship game...NO...did Big Ten deserve 2 teams in BCS....probably not, but who else do you put in there?

I think Appalachian st vs Hawaii would have been a good match up.

adrian on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 11:28 AM

Didn't USC get beat by Stanford? On that merit only, they shouldn't be in the National Game.

joe on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 12:40 PM

douglas on Tuesday, January 08, 2008 at 1:02 PM

just for shits and giggles, the first preseason poll for next year. After getting thrashed in the championship, and losing their starting QB, and most likely a few underclassmen draft picks, OSU is picked 3rd. USC is #1, after losing at least 10 starters. UK is not top 25 either

So I am back on my man-crush Colin Cowherd, I am fascinated by this obscure Bill Belichek reference. "When was the last time fans questioned one of his coaching decisions...in 1993 when he benched Bernie Kosar for Vinnie Testaverde?"

In no way was I expecting to go into work today and hear a Bernie Kosar reference.

Hmmm, apparently they are still in the ICU. Maybe I'll wait until they are out until I send a smoothie king gift card...

In the ICU smoothie king won't do much. Once out and wired shut and can suck down liquids with a straw smoothie king will be awesome.

Oh and UK linebacker Terry Clayton won the Rudy award.

joe on Wednesday, January 09, 2008 at 11:27 AM

What is that?

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 09, 2008 at 11:30 AM

Kentucky senior linebacker Terry Clayton is a finalist for the inaugural Rudy Award, which will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 8, during the American Football Coaches Association convention in Anaheim, Calif.

The Award honors NCAA Division I student-athletes who demonstrate exemplary character, courage, contribution, and commitment as members of their collegiate football teams. These same traits were immortalized in the blockbuster film “Rudy” in 27 seconds and against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, enabling Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger to carve his name into college football lore.

The four finalists were chosen from an impressive field of 26 total nominees. The finalists, listed alphabetically, are: Terry Clayton (University of Kentucky), Keegan Herring (Arizona State University), Robenson Jean (University of Central Florida) and Joey Stutson (Louisiana State University).

Each finalist will be presented with a framed commemorative plaque and an academic scholarship, as well as have their travel expenses paid to the event. An overall winner will be announced and presented with the top scholarship of $5,000, as well as a handsome Rudy Award bronze statue. The three runners-up each will receive a $2,500 scholarship.

“This award is truly unique, and one we hope will soon rank among the nation’s top collegiate honors,” said Rudy Ruettiger. “We will recognize players for the size of their hearts, instead of the enormity of their stats. Our four inaugural finalists certainly fit this criteria, demonstrating extraordinary character, courage, contribution and commitment as members of their teams.”

The Rudy Award Selection Committee is comprised of football coaches Fisher DeBerry, Dennis Franchione, June Jones, Chuck Knox, Gary Patterson, Buddy Pough, Dick Tomey and prominent businessman Peter Murphy, Jr., who serves as chairman. Aaron Taylor, former NFL player and broadcaster, will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the program.

Division I collegiate players of any age or year in school were eligible for nomination, provided they were members of the 2007-08 football team. For any finalists presently receiving a full scholarship, the award will be made in the player’s name to the general scholarship fund of the college or university.

About the Finalists

Terry Clayton, senior linebacker, University of Kentucky:

Terry Clayton went deaf at the age of five as the result of a high fever from a severe case of chicken pox. Despite the limitation, he became an honorable mention all-state player in high school out of Olmstead, Ky., and made the University of Kentucky Wildcats football team as a walk-on in each of the past five seasons. Clayton provided depth at linebacker and consistently contended for playing time on special teams. An outstanding weight lifter, he is one of the strongest players on the team.

“Terry has shown great perseverance in his life,” said Kentucky Head Football Coach Rich Brooks, who nominated Clayton for the RUDY AWARD. “He is an award-winning student and has not let his physical challenges stop him from becoming a college football player. He gives you everything he has and takes great pride in everything he does.”

Clayton has twice been selected for the Southeast Conference Honor Roll and was the recipient of the Carol S. Adelstein Outstanding Student Award for overcoming disabilities. In 2006 he returned to the Kentucky School for the Deaf, which he attended as a child, for a program to encourage the students to succeed.

“Never once has Terry ever used his disability as an excuse not to do something,” said Kentucky Linebackers Coach Chuck Smith. “That shows great character.”

douglas on Wednesday, January 09, 2008 at 2:40 PM

shitty pay is giving it too much justice, DJ's don't make shit unless you're a top dog or something. i worked with tony vanetti's wife, jackie, on her mortgage a couple years ago. they ended up not refinancing, it wasn't in their best interests, but i saw what he makes, and he's been around a long time now. i'd shudder to think what grigs is making on the midnight shift. vanetti actually lives right behind where frankfort ave. white castle used to be

joe on Wednesday, January 09, 2008 at 2:47 PM

Grigsby's main job is at a hospital, he has those 2 time slots on the radio and then he is paid for his appearances such as at the riverbats on thursdays, at at sullys on Friday's for 100.5 and he hosts a rock show at R-Place or TKs or one of those random places.

Vanneti is on 95.7 for lunch now and on a sports talk show on an AM station.

e-mail getting passed around oceanography and biology

Thirteen days after Christmas, The Hat and The Vest,
Were set to do battle in an epic contest.
The fans had all gathered, from across this great land
Talking smack about everything, including the bands!

For the Tigers and Buckeyes, this was more than a game,
So much more than a trophy, fifteen minutes of fame.
Bragging rights, respect . . . yes, a little thing called pride
And both the teams claimed they would not be denied.

The Southern Cal Trojans argued their team was better.
The Dawgs started crying, and their Pres wrote a letter!
But as this season played out, only one thing was clear,
It was perfectly fitting that the Tigers were here.

As the kickoff approached, only minutes away
Dorsey remembered he came back for today.
Ciron remembered, not all heroes wear capes,
As he wrote the name "MIKEY" around his wrist tape.

The excitement in the dome cou! ld not be contained,
Just a euphoric feeling that's hard to explain.
The Tiger Band marched to the forty yard line,
Blasted four little notes, that sent chills down the spine.

Down in their locker, L-S-U was ready.
The game was now here, they were focused and steady.
Then down through the tunnel, the Tigers they came.
Les led HIS team, and he called them by name.

"Matt Flynn, now the Jacksons, now Steltz, and LaFell
Get out on that field men, and give these guys hell!
We've come from all over, yet we share the same dream,
Tiger Nation's united by this Damn Strong team!"

Finally the kickoff sailed through the air,
And the Buckeyes were waiting to take it from there.
After less than two minutes, Wells broke a big run.
Tiger fans fell silent and were frankly, quite stunned.

Down ten to nothing, Les laughed at the score.
His teams do not panic, they've been there before.
Defying the "experts" at ESP! N,
The Tigers came back, and they tied it at ten.

The noise in the dome reached an ear splitting level,
As the fate was decided for poor ole Coach Tressel.
'Cause with Ten:Fifty-Three, left on the clock,
Ricky broke through their line and came up with a block.

From there it was over. You could say it was done.
Before the Bucks scored again, they were down twenty one.
Coach Sweater-vest's team had put up a fight,
But were no match for The Hat and HIS Tigers tonight

The boys from Ohio felt the S-E-C wrath,
They watched Les hoist the crystal, after Bo got a bath.
Call it "Divine intervention" or whatever you might,
Destiny wore purple and gold on this night.

Thirty Eight – Twenty Four, is now written in stone.
There are no words for the grit that the Tigers have shown.
Could you be any happier about where we are?
Thank God for our Tigers and the alignment of stars!

The year is now over, and our! dreams have come true.
The champs of the land are from L-S-U.
So if you haven't done it yet, I ask that you do,
Follow Coach Les's lead and scream out "Waa Hoooooo!"

joe on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 12:37 PM

Bigworm on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:21 PM

Joe doesn't love dem hoes

douglas on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:23 PM

i'm aware, but he should love da pussy on dem hoes, and i'm tryna help a brotha out

Bigworm on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:26 PM

Tru dat yo!

But, Jizzoe don't need dem hoes when you got a big scrizeen tv and smackdown.

Seriously, that sentence took me much longer to type than I anticipated.

douglas on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:28 PM

i guess when you got the TV he's got, all you need is good porn to get thru the day

Bigworm on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:28 PM

Or bad porn?

douglas on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:28 PM

high def nipples

Bigworm on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:29 PM

Is there bad porn?

Did you watch that video I posted above? You need to see it.

douglas on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:30 PM

is there really such a bad thing as bad porn? seriously, have you ever been watching porn when you're horny and been like, y'know, this just isn't for me, I think I'll watch 'friends'

Phil on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:31 PM

busty cops 2 is pretty terrible

Bigworm on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:35 PM

Nope, there is no bad porn...there is gay porn...but that is just gay...but I guess if two dudes were getting it on I'd rather watch friends...that would be gay and bad, whereas friends is just gay.

joe on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:40 PM

Don't be dissing the busty cops series. That is quality programming.

Sometimes you just need to take one for the team and drink yourself stupid. We all know what would happen if I went out with her. Why make things awkward for two people when I can get piss ass drunk, not go on a date and and save her the awkwardness of going on a date with me. I have no self respect so I don't feel awkward puking on myself. I'm just really sympathetic and was looking out for her by puking on myself.

Jay on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:43 PM

That didn't really seem to work with Laura, though.

joe on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 2:44 PM

I think porn that leaves a little to the imagination is the best. High def can actually make things worse.

If a girls Friday night involves a love of drinking and smackdown that would be a keeper.

Sounds like a good idea. I know I just got off the phone with you, Chris' phone is straight to voicemail. I wasn't taking a shit I was running around trying to find the phone. The phone sounds far away when it is buried under blankets on the couch. Should I be winded from running around the house?

joe on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 6:08 PM

China Buffet next to the Stoneybrook Cinemas was busted for illegal immigrants. That is one of my favorite buffets they better not close that place.

Hell at McAllisters we had an employee with a SS# of 555-55-5555 and we didn't know what her real name was. She was in a relationship with an abusive guy but we couldn't turn it in because she would have been deported and she wouldn't let us. It was a very hard decision to make based on ethics.

i did see that strange wilderness trailer over the weekend. that shark thing got me too. i think it's probably one of those movies where it'll be pretty good, the trailer just sucks b/c most of the funny parts aren't acceptable for TV

Douglas-I'm glad I'm not the only one. And you may be right.

"Earlier this week, IGN provided definitive proof that not only is there a God, but that's he's a gamer and a fanboy." I think I'll move to Oregon and start a new religion centered around a benevolent God that will fall in line at GameStop for the midnight release of the next Grand Theft Auto.

Oh, and Yoda has distinct advantages because of experience and his Zen-like calm. Vader is too raw and emotional. Vader's best shot is to take out the Muppeteer with his hand up Yoda's ass.

Thanks Wes, I feel much better. See, I get bored during meetings and draw pictures. One picture the other day was a guy getting dunked on playing basketball that I titled "T-bag". She asked about the picture so I had to explain it. She came into work today and there was a t-bag hanging on her monitor, I have no clue how it got there. Who would do a thing like that?

I was going through the archives the other day too. it is a tremondous waste of hilarious time. the good ole days of "what to eat for lunch" and "coach generos last words win or I'll day". Why would we ever move on in life to be respectable members of society? Better yet how are we successful members of society when we can do brilliant things like threaten to eat someones eyeball, burp the alphabet to the letter i in one burp or projectile vomit at every bar in a 2 mile radius of Baxter Avenue? I think we should use all of this to our advantage when we follow through on Phil's plot to take over YPAL.

Bigworm on Monday, January 14, 2008 at 1:10 PM

colin cowherd just compared sports to TV shows. Phil, the NHL one is all you.

college football - Lost - exciting and big monster the BCS always looming
college basketball - Survivor - March Madness
NFL - American Idol - Two highest rated elimination shows on TV
Nascar - Hee Haw - need an explanation?
Baseball - 60 minutes - always there and old people love it
NHL - Arrested Development - the few people that watch it swear it is the greatest thing out there

Phil on Tuesday, January 15, 2008 at 10:33 AM

The recovery is no problem from one day to the next. My hips are a little sore today, but that'll be fine tomorrow.

Last night was interesting. We did a bunch of skating drills and the such, and then for the last 20 minutes we played soccer on ice. The kicking of the ball forces you to really concentrate on your balance, and once we had it going 14 on 14 on the ice it made you keep your head up too. But I bet it looked like a bunch of retards trying to hump a door knob out there.

Damn, miss a day, miss a lot. Jay's right ... continuity with Spidey is all fucked up now. It's sad, really. The fate of Captain America is a more appealing read perhaps as far as the non-mutant masks and capes go. But the new Hulk - yes, the RED Hulk. There's some potential there.

Wes - which Batman? There's 52 of them now apparently - What the frilly heck?

Thank God there's no strike in this medium.

And Megadeth? I'm not sure whose opening, but if it isn't Iron Maiden, Dokken or Slayer, I'll be sad. Yeah, I'm a fan - just look at the cover of my social studies folder.

What does anyone think of the Tiger Woods "lynching" comment? I know I'm a jackass and all, but I don't think the comment was that bad. Yes, I know the history of the word, but is using it any worse than some other form of violence in it's place? Stop taking offense to so much shit people. I mean it was just a comment on how good he is and the only way to beat him is to incapacitate him somehow.

Phil on Wednesday, January 16, 2008 at 11:44 AM

I think you'd have to be pretty stupid to say that someone needs to be taken out via a lynching. There are just some things that you know will cause a problem if you say them, so just don't say them. It'd be no different if someone said "the only way you'll stop this wall street firm is if you round them up and put them in a gas chamber!", "these catholic school football teams are so good that the only way they'll get stopped is if we feed them to lions!" or "the only way these african runners can be stopped is if we get a bunch of freedom fighters to take them out and slaughter them with machetes and ak47 when they are children!"

Racist or not, I'd fire their ass for being dumb. Your job is to talk, and if you can't talk without saying something that makes you sound like a racist then you need to find a new job.

joe on Wednesday, January 16, 2008 at 12:14 PM

If I'm not mistaken she said the only way these guys can beat Tiger is to lynch him in a back alley. If Any word without the lynching connotation would have actually been used in its place it would have been kind of funny.

This is so sketchy. A few other notes of interest regarding the story. Look at the picture of Pickerill, how did he survive?. The spokeman for the family is called "Christopher 2X." I know who Koenig is and I wonder if David Stengel is Lauren's (former Miss Kentucky) dad. If so, Koenig and Stengel's daughters grew up together, though they were in separate clicks from what I recall. It's a shame the other witnesses didn't seem to notice who drew a gun first.

Because if so, she's going to be downing a few beers.

Phil on Thursday, January 17, 2008 at 11:31 AM

As to the security lockdown, the fear is that most of those devices can be made to launch an application automatically that installs a rootkit. A rootkit just sits on your machine without you noticing doing evil stuff. Logging passwords, key strokes or even trying to use your pc as a zombie to launch other attacks.

The other big problem with bringing in external devices is that if they already have a rootkit, you plug them into the network and they'll immediately looking for other hosts too. Big problem. And while I haven't read about it yet, theoretically digital cameras and photo albums could carry a worm too.

I know that there are a lot of companies that want PCs without any drives (CD/DVD/Floppy) and no support for external devices for these reasons.

So my coworker who we run into at O'sheas every week was checking in to see if we we went to O'sheas last weekend. I was like nope we went to O'sheas St. Matthews on Saturday. Turns out she went to Brendan's. She didn't realize those were the same place. I don't like seeing coworkers in public.

My buddy Terry sent this email in preparation for our Rec League basketball game:

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.

Vince Lombardi

WILL gentlemen. WILL. W-I-L-L. Four letters that mean so much in
life and in basketball. We are not the tallest, most athletic team in
this league. We don't have the best players. We have a lot of "ain't
gots." But, I'll tell you what we do have: WILL. We have the WILL to
be great. We have the WILL to overcome great odds. I know and I
understand that things look bleak right now. We haven't had a lot of
success up to this point in the season. I also know that the potential
is there. The potential is there for greatness. The potential is there
for us to play above our abilities. Now that team over there might beat
us 99 times, but all we need to is to win this one. Just one game.

People will say that we don't have a chance. People will say that we're
underdogs, that we shouldn't be out there. I tell you this, we WILL
have a chance because we WILL be out there. Like NC State over Houston in 83. Like Villanova over Houston in 85. Like Appy State over
Michigan in 07. Like Stanford over USC in 07. Like IU or UofL over UK
any time (5+2=7). All we can ask for in the opportunity to prove
ourselves. Tonight, we have been given that opportunity. We have an
opportunity to show the world, nay to show ourselves what our collective
WILL can accomplish.

Play hard. Play smart. Play together.

We lost and are now 0-5. The other team played the first 4 minutes with 4 players and finished with 5. We had 6 the entire game. We ain't got shit.

Bigworm on Thursday, January 17, 2008 at 3:23 PM

O'sheas st. matthews is Brendans. It is across the street from BW3 and Dutchs. It was formerly Maiers. It is a lot of old people earlier then it turns fairly preppy. It is too bad. The first few times I was there they had a solo acoustic guy playing. Everytime since there has been a DJ that isn't too bad. Phil described him as catering to the white people.

Phillies sign reliever Downs (Scott, form PRP) to three-year deal worth $10 million. Seriously, $3 mill a year for 58 innings? What the fuck? Middle fucking relievers shouldn't make that much money especially for one "breakout" year. I bet he was on 'roids. It was his only year with an ERA below 4 and his career AVG is .274. God, I wish I had his job.

joe on Friday, January 18, 2008 at 8:50 AM

At Wrigley Field you can't win because they have throughs on a short wall in the middle so you are looking at the person across from you as you piss.

Rivers is not much better, Brees would have destroyed that Patriots defense. What can I say about the Pack? The Lambeau Field advantage and all...I hate Eli Manning.

apparently today is the most depressing day of the year from what i saw on the news this morning.

This day in History: 1984 - Apple introduced the Macintosh. It was the first computer to use point-and-click technology.

joe on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 8:57 AM

So FM 93.9 for the past month has been broadcasting the national ESPN radio of Mike and Mike, Colin Cowherd, Mike Tirico and Stephen A Smith. This week they mixed things up and are playing the Scott Padgett and Dave Ragone show, the last hour of Mike and Mike, Colin Cowherd and then the Rick Bozich and Jody Demling Show and then some other local dude. This local shit sucks. Ragone took one too many shots to the head and Padgett can't read. He was academically ineligble to start his UK career and they let him be on the radio. Why mess with something that wasn't broken?

jen on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 9:01 AM

because the local ESPN radio station folded and they needed jobs.

jen on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 9:01 AM

my old roommate worked there and their payroll checks all bounced last month.

because of schadenfreuden. the enjoyment of others' misfortune.

last year, the associated press decided to take paris hilton off of the news wire to see what would happen. nobody complained, and they finally came out with the story of what they did, i guess so they could put her back in the news. i think they should do the same with britney and leave it that way.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 12:54 PM

Joe - actually the local guys got picked up by the network because they use to be on 1570 am (their signal sucked) and they actually have decent following. I actually like the local flair and have been a listener for a long time. I'd rather listen to the local guys then to mike and mike who always talk about nfl and about something else I don't really care to listen to.

douglas on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 1:00 PM

everytime i hear dave ragone on the radio i think about meeting him at main street lounge in college and him coming off as a total effin prick. and of course scott padgett was the lone white boy in an all black fraternity at UK, so needless to say, i can't think of much they would say that would be of great interest to me.

Jay on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 9:19 PM

I give my students a ten minute break after about an hour. Tonight, as soon as the break started, a girl called a guy and said "What are you doing tonight, I need to go drink after this." I told her I knew how she felt. She said she would have felt bad drinking by herself, but that she would probably end up doing it anyway. I like her style

I ended up sharing a couple of my stories, the one about the bomb calorimeter, and the mardi gras/physics test. Phil, I'm sorry, but neither of them involved you. I know you find that hard to believe.

Next I may tell them about the parrot.

joe on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 7:59 AM

Phil, apparently A Wick's BLT at trivia is the best pregame basketball ritual ever. I dropped 31 points 12 boards and 5 assists. We still lost by over 30 but I was unstoppable. Who thought they would ever hear about a team switching from a 2-3 zone to a 3-2 zone to try and shut down the unstoppable high post offense of Joe. I don't mean to sound racist but you can't stop the white man basketball run to perfection. High post with backdoor cuts is beautiful white man basketball. They tried to emulate it in the second half but failed miserably. Only the whitest of white can pull it off.

How did we fair in trivia?

on a much happier note: uk won last night, this is the highest ranked team UK's beaten in over five years....two wins over top 15 teams in a week

Phil on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 9:45 AM

hey joe, congrats. And we ended up pulling out the win thanks to brent.

Within five, the last question was "what's the combined age of crosby, stills, nash and young." A few months ago we had the same question, and it was on a night Brent was on a team with a group of girls. Brent needed the win and the prize money to get them back. I remember him saying "We went with 258, and the answer was 259" and it was one of the greatest clutch trivia performances ever.

So we went with 259. It turns out I had the quote backwards, but it was still close enough. Go us, go brent, go krogering.

Jerome on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 10:18 AM

So does UK need to win the SEC Tournament to reach the big dance? Does just winning the SEC East earn them an at-large? What's it gonna take?

Can similar questions be applied to U of L?

I ask because my interest in college hoops this season is about as high as a catcher's nutsack on a summer afternoon double-header... um, that is to say, I'm not really watching this year but I probably should.

douglas on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 11:13 AM

the only way UK is going to the NCAA's w/o winning the tournament is if they pretty much win out the regular season, and make it to the championship game of the SEC tournament. If they win out the season, they'll get some more wins over ranked teams, coupled with some good road wins, and with name recognition and momentum on their side, they have a chance. Of course chances of that happening are slim to none, so basically yes, they need to win the tournament

Cats irked with Vols for 'offense' before upset win
By Pat Forde

"And the Vols committed the hoops etiquette faux pas of wearing their earrings on the court during warm-ups, too."

Since when is this such a big offense? Yes, I can see celebrating at midcourt on the logo or something to that degree. But, earrings? Who the fuck cares?

douglas on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 11:40 AM

it actually is, to be honest. you're not allowed to wear earrings during games, so when you keep them on during warmups, it shows you're just showing up and not taking them seriously. at least that's what the brothers think. it's one of those unwritten rules, kinda like in baseball when you're up by 10 runs in the 9th inning and you're trying to stretch singles into doubles, it's showing up the other team.

joe on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 12:29 PM

Funniest thing I saw on ESPN last night. At halftime of the Michigan game the analyst answered a readers email question of:

it's a stupid economic plan that does nothing to help the economy whatsoever, which is going to correct itself in due time anyway. someone getting an extra 300 bucks in the mail isn't going to save them from foreclosure or get the value of the house back if they lives in Cali or Florida or something. The smart people will take the money and either pay off debt or invest, neither of which helps the economy. Drunks like us will go buy beer, some other people may buy some clothes or something, big whoop. free money's always good, and with the kid I get double, but it's a stupid idea.

the best performance by a UC football player this year was that douche on that lie detector tv show. And he walked away $0 and a wife that wants to divorce his ass.

If only I was 7'7"

Jay on Thursday, January 24, 2008 at 11:44 PM

So, financial guys, apparently our economy is tanking. Would I be smart to go on and buy a house, or would that come back to bite me in the ass?

Brock on Thursday, January 24, 2008 at 11:54 PM

Real estate is ALWAYS a good investment if you are living in it. If the "economy is tanking," then it'll be a buyers market in your favor.

Bigworm on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 8:00 AM

Real Estate ISN'T ALWAYS a good investment. For example, if you live in San Diego and you bought at the end of real estate bubble and then bam the housing market plummets, you just bought a house that you overpaid for and are now probably upside down on your loan (meaning you owe way more than the property is worth).

Also, other articles I have read suggests that house values don't out pace inflation. I think the way around this is if there is a new development and you buy in early (phase 1) by the time phase 3 rolls around your property has increased pretty well.

Douglas can probably give you more insight and better details, but this is what I am thinking Jay. If you find a house that you like and want to buy it, go ahead and do, because you can probably offer a lower than asking price figure and can potentially get the house, providing nobody else is offering either. Also, with the 3/4 point reduction that we just had on the prime interest rate you can probably get a 30 year fixed mortgage pretty low and I like knowing exactly what my payment will be. I think our interest rate is 5.5% on our mortgage, fixed 30 years. 30 years ago, interest rates on 30 year fixed was about 10%. I like fixed interest rates when you can get them low because the economy will bounce back and if you have a variable interest rate, chances are when the economy bounces back and is strong again, your interest rate will be higher than if you locked in with a weaker housing market.

Now if you don't plan on staying in this house for a long time, you can probably get a 3 or 7 year ARM which means you have a fixed rate for a certain time period (3 or 7 years) and after that term the rate is adjusted.

jen on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 8:49 AM

sorry phil. didn't realize i was wife-hunting for you or i would have made a better effort.

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 9:01 AM

investing in real estate in KY isn't comparable to buying a house during the bubble in Cali or Florida or someplace like that. Even last year, the average selling price of homes in KY went up 2%. What is happening is homes are staying on the market much longer b/c people are afraid of what they see on the news, even though it's not correlating to what you see locally. Now is actually a great time to buy a house, bad economy (or the thought of one) = lower interest rates, as like Wes said, they just lowered them .75 basis points earlier this week. I talked to a buddy of mine at Chase last week, and they were going as low as 5.25% or something on 30-yr. mortgages. If you're smart about what you buy, real estate is always a good long-term investment. If you buy in a shitty neighborhood, obviously that won't be the case. I don't know anything about Frankfort's market, but I know Louisville's market extremely well. Houses in St. Matthews will not lose their value b/c there aren't other part of town that are in the center of the county. location sells. there's not a giant real estate bubble like there is in other parts of the country though, you'd be fine if you wanted to buy something, buy low before prices shoot back up

Jay on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 9:06 AM

Thanks. I kind of figured that was the way to go, but I wasn't sure. I'll probably wait until the spring. Do you think the market will more or less stay the same for a few months?

Bigworm on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 9:16 AM

Jay here are the top 3 things when you buy real estate.

1) Location
2) Location
3) Location

Another good tip is don't buy more than you can afford. Just because a company is willing to give you a loan for x amount of dollars doesn't mean you should do it. You have to look at what you are budgetting for and go with that.

Also, if you can get 20% down you don't have to pay PMI.

Bigworm on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 9:19 AM

Don't forget about having to buy home insurance and property taxes either. Ours is added into our monthly payment and that money is put into an escrow account. We just found that to be easier, not sure if that is required or not. And when payment is due for that, it comes straight out from Wells Fargo or whoever else owns the actual loan.

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 9:59 AM

most banks / lenders require you to set up an escrow account, one b/c if they're paying it they know the taxes / insurance will always be paid, and two, they take that money and invest it to make more money for themselves. there's other ways around PMI (mortgage insurance) w/o having to put 20% down, you can do a combo loan (first and second mortgages), but that is huge, whatever you do, do not get PMI on your loan, it's the equivalent of taking money and flushing it down the toilet. You're better off with a higher interest rate b/c at least you can deduct that on your taxes each year.

And yes, the market i'm sure will be the same in the spring, although prices might slightly be higher then. winter is the best time to buy b/c people don't ever want to move in the winter, so it's harder to sell, so prices go down. but for frankfort, it's not going to make enough of a difference, if at all.

joe on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 10:03 AM

So I take a break from PTSD cases and all I have to clear my mind is houses and economy shit. You all suck.

Jay on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 10:05 AM

I really appreciate your help, guys. Thank you. Joe-I'm sorry

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 10:09 AM

i'm sorry joe, i'll change the subject. I fucked an alligator once, and when I was doing it, it reached it tail around my ass and stuck the tip of it in, quite exhilerating. is that better?

jen on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 10:10 AM

so this kid tries to commit suicide by hijacking a plane and flying it into a hannah montana concert. hmmm. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/01/25/fl...dent/index.html

See, I now have a smile on my face. I didn't mind the economy thing, it just ran way to long.

joe on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 10:40 AM

How did Will Smith go from "Fresh Prince" to "Gettin Jiggy Wit It" to this award winning actor? Is there a particular movie or something that gave him his break?

joe on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 10:57 AM

Oh shit! I just found out that the regional director of the VA is coming for a site visit to louisville the first week of February focusing on how our seriously disabled cases are worked. I am one of 2 alternate coordinators and Cat is the coordinator. We are screwed. Go team.

jen on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 12:01 PM

i'd say bad boys was the gateway for will smith

Jay on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 12:02 PM

Will Smith's movie role was Where the Day Takes you, which was a serious film

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000226/

Note-he is producing a project called MILF and Cookies. I have to see that.

Phil on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 12:09 PM

I thought Six Degrees of Seperation was considered his coming out movie.

jen on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 12:25 PM

might have been the after school special

joe on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 12:59 PM

Phil, after today I completely agree with your statement last night about not letting people know you know things. Today I have had to run excel reports, fix a fax machine and a printer. Had I played dumb or not been sold out this place would be so much easier and I would have less urge to smack a bitch.

Jay on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 1:18 PM

Phil-yeah, six degrees of separation was probably his first big role, but when I checked his imdb page, Where the Day Takes you was his first actual movie role. Plus his character was gay in six degrees. Queer!

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 1:34 PM

six degrees was his first 'serious' role, and he got props from the industry. his breakout role was bad boys, but he wasn't a legit star until independence day. he's got a movie coming out this summer that looks pretty funny,a lthough i forgot the name

Jay on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 2:48 PM

If it's not MILF and cookies, I want nothing to do with it.

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 3:00 PM

just looked on imdb, it looks like MILF and cookies is a TV show, here's what they had about it:

Four young, hot single moms raise their kids in the same luxury apartment community.

I guarantee it's one of those shows on UPN or CW, he used to produce a show for that network, i can't remember what it was, but i'm sure he has a deal with them. so basically it's destined to suck

joe on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 3:20 PM

I'm working a claim for a 22 year old with a GSW to the head. I hate this.

jen on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 3:40 PM

yeah, always bad when it's someone your age. a guy i went to elementary school with fell at home the other day and hit his head and died. very weird.

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 4:30 PM

i had six people i knew my age that died while i was in high school, one of the perks of going to waggener i guess.

douglas on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 4:31 PM

what's fucked up is that one of their names was brian dudley, which of course comes right after douglas, so we sat next to each other in homeroom every year. plus, after he died, at graduation, he was supposed to have been seated next to me, but of course he died, so he couldn't make it, and they decided to leave his seat empty to honor him, so i had an empty seat next to me during my high school graduation

Brock on Friday, January 25, 2008 at 7:08 PM

I just noticed this, and I've seen it about 100 times. My bike is on the front page for Vanderbilt's website.

Phil on Sunday, January 27, 2008 at 10:25 PM

You guys end up doing anything on Saturday? We ended up at Denny's at 4am. Well over 15 people were kicked out while we were there. Good times.

douglas on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 8:04 AM

i have not been kicked out of a denny's since high school, talk about good times there. the one that used to be on shelbyville near hubbards that they turned into a bank, they had a ton of freaks working there, and stopping by when you're high as hell with a bunch of immature high school kids was always an adventure at 3am

joe on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 8:51 AM

Dave Ragone and Scott Padgett are interviewing Chris Redman. The best I ever saw at Denny's was a knife fight.

Jay on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 9:13 AM

Cuban, Chris and I ended up at Dutch's. That was after Joe and I rescued a girl from some drunk dude that had passed out and thrown up in her car.

Phil on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 9:23 AM

Sensenbrenner and I got attacked by a guy with a cricket bat, ala the Big Lebowski (this was before the movie came out too). I think we were more dumb founded that the dude had a cricket bat than the fact that he wanted to beat us down with it.

joe on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 9:36 AM

What was more bizarre Saturday, the gay dudes in the bathroom or the chick yelling help me because of the stranger that passed out and vomited in the backseat of her car?

Wrecking Crew on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 9:51 AM

Jay, are you going to call that chick from Dutch's?

Bigworm on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 11:34 AM

Phil,

Did that happen before the movie Dazed and Confused? I am pretty sure the paddles the seniors carry around in that movie are cricket bats.

Jay on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 11:52 AM

Joe- The dudes were more bizzare, but the girl kind of freaked me out when she yelled "Help Me".

Chris-I haven't decided yet. There is a pretty good chance she doesn't even remember me. Good looking out Saturday, by the way.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 1:18 PM

Who the fuck cares if she doesn't remember you? It's worth a shot even if she thinks it's about starting up a band and not getting in her pants.

joe on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 2:21 PM

Chris, Wes or Phil, how sloppy do you think trails will be today. We got sunset at 6 so I am tempted to give the trails a quick trip if you think they will be almost funtional. What does anyone think the trails will be like?

Jay on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 2:27 PM

Yeah, I talked to a girl at work (who was also drunk on saturday) and she said I should call her

Bigworm on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 2:32 PM

Trails will probably be hard and wet. The slate areas will be extra slippery when wet.

douglas on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 2:55 PM

i don't think the trails could be any better than staying warm in your living room in front of the TV

joe on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 3:00 PM

Worm dropped a slippery when wet and you didn't follow with anything good douglas, I'm dissapointed.

Douglas, you can't take sweet jumps in front of the TV.

Bigworm on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 3:04 PM

Douglas, you let me down big time. I served you a big ole spikable ball and you let it hit the ground.

Jay on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 4:02 PM

That's what she said!

douglas on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 5:17 PM

there's no excuse for my actions, what i did (or in this case didn't do) is completely unexcusable. i vow to never again miss a perfect opportunity to make a completely idiotic, perverted comment that is totally expected from me. furthermore, i promise to never grow up and stop making these comments, and to double my efforts to disgust any female readers of the sci

douglas on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 5:17 PM

as for spikeable balls that hit the ground, has anyone else ever fucked a porcupine?

Bigworm on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 9:52 PM

Brock on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 10:48 PM

Is anyone still interested in the Megadeth concert?

I'll go, Brock.

Wrecking Crew on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 9:54 AM

Brock, you know that concert is going to be mre of a death metal event than you may be expecting from MEgadeath. With that being said, I'd love to go bash some heads depending on my call schedule. I won't know about that until the end of March.

douglas on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 11:15 AM

he probably was some dropout looking for a cheap way to get a degree or something, or had nothing better to do with his life, and he thought he'd be good for a few years, get in, get out, and he'd be set. that sux

in other news, i'm leaving to go to versailles in about an hour, i'm taking a tour of the woodford reserve distillery. i'm all about trying to get some free samples and shit

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 11:16 AM

On a good note, Abby and I finished our taxes last night. Ka ching $$$$.

oh yeah, you get to deduct the kid now, that's money. i get to deduct kaelyn this year, i can't wait to do my taxes

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 11:22 AM

If you guys ever have kids, try to shoot for a date of 12/31 with a time stamp of 11:59 pm.

You still get to deduct the kid for that entire year.

douglas on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 11:25 AM

same goes for getting married and filing jointly, although i don't know if it's worth it

Jay on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 11:45 AM

Children are precious...as tax incentives. I just got my W2's today. They're cutting it kind of close. I figure the Bellarmine ones will go to my mom's, because for some reason they still have that address. I don't know why.

joe on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 12:19 PM

I'm still liking the not knocking up a chick and/or not getting married. I'm sure I could do a cool Venn diagram for a visual: A=married, B=kids in relation to awesomeness. A union B doesn't equal awesome.

Jay on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 2:18 PM

Joe-No I have not. I know Viggo Mortenson is a russian mobster. That's about it.

joe on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 2:50 PM

I turned into one trail and turned around and stayed on the road. It was beyond sloppy.

Jay on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 3:12 PM

That's what she said!

joe on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 3:28 PM

That is one of the best thats what she saids I have ever heard. I wasn't even trying to set that one up.

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 7:51 AM

Joe 2 Apocalypse 0. Trees down everywhere, I don't expect power for a while. I slept on my parents couch last night. It looks like a war zone in St. Matthews. The area around the mall is demolished. streets are blocked in my neighborhood by trees. I don't think I have any damage from my assessment last night in the dark.

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 8:30 AM

The stop light on Shelbyville in front of Toys R Us was found inside the Moby Dick.

Jay on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 9:26 AM

I have a meeting with the state police today, so I decided to wear a shirt and tie. Whenever someone asks me why I'm dressed up, I say "I have a meeting with the Bob's." I don't think anyone gets it. This place sucks. Joe-I'm glad your house is okay.

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 9:32 AM

Joe - just wind damage or was there an actual tornado that came through last night? We lost power last night for about 5 minutes. I drove through Lyndon this morning when taking A.J. to daycare...large trees were down left and right.

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 9:38 AM

Some trees looked twisted. Winds were swirling. Power is still out.

jen on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 9:54 AM

holy cats. i thought the wrath of god only came when all of natty sci was at your house, joe. that's crazy. my power flickered a little, but no trees down or anything on my street...

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 10:13 AM

Should've called in and hung out at my parents all day. I think I broke my finger playing basketball last night too. Should it hurt to type and be swollen and discolored? And ESPN radio isn't playing Colin Cowherd. It is just one of those days.

Phil on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 10:33 AM

There were lots of pictures from my mom's neck of the woods in the paper today. That would have been crazy to have the sign fall on you while at outback

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 10:39 AM

What the fuck. I just got nominated to perform in an interoffice version of the Amazing Race next week. Good fucking lord.

The explosion of transformers in St. Matthews was pretty cool to watch while driving on the ramp from 64 to the Watterson. It looked like a giant explosion almost mushroom cloud like.

Jay on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 11:12 AM

Sweet. Sucks for the people without power, though.

Barry on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 12:12 PM

my dad called last night. he said the outback sign had relocated to the restaurant's roof and the front of the goodyear was blown out. what happened?

God tried to spite me and lost, again.

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 12:23 PM

That's just a joke, I'm so getting struck down. I really would like my power back though. The last I heard was as late as tomorrow afternoon.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 12:26 PM

Damn, Joe, the city must not like St. matthews. We got our power back around 1 or 2 AM, but it was weird driving to work and one side of Cannons had power while the other was black. Fortunately, all of our trees are still standing, too, and nothing bad in our neighborhood.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 12:32 PM

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 12:38 PM

The city of louisville fears me. They feel if they cut my power I can't take over the world. Once i control St. Matthews the rest of the world is in trouble. The city of Louisville will be cake to take over once I gain control of St. Matthews.

douglas on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 1:04 PM

A balanced diet of porn, talk shows and soaps?

i've got two of those three done so far, but which ones???

douglas on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 2:30 PM

just heard on the radio that it may not be until tomorrow when everyone has power, so you may be fucked joe

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 3:07 PM

I just had a meeting with my supervisor. He told me not to get married. If you shack up there is an exit strategy. Till death do you part ain't got no exit strategy.

My response, you see this smile. This is the smile of a man who isn't married.

douglas on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 3:38 PM

okay, i've done all three now

Barry on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 3:58 PM

what you jerked off to joe's smile?

joe on Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 5:42 PM

Woohoo, I have electricity. The news said a tornado touched down in the area. Take that world. Floods, winds, plagues, you can't stop me you can only hope to contain me. Fuck yeah.

joe on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 8:03 AM

You know what is funny, I have electricity but if you look across the street at the Martinez' house they don't have elctricity still. They moved out temporarily so I don't feel so bad. If they were sitting around in the cold I'd have to let them come over and play smackdown.

On another note, there is a huge difference between noon and midnight. My power came back on at noon yesterday and since all my clocks reset to midnight all my clocks are 12 hours off. I didn't think anything off it since all my clocks looked right. Lets just say my alarm didn't go off and I had to run this morning.

Jay on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 8:27 AM

Joe, you've officially made mother nature your bitch

joe on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 10:05 AM

I'm starting a new thing at work today, after every team meeting or training session I am awarding an MVP. Basically, whoever is the biggest retard and says the dumbest thing gets the award. I think it might catch on.

are you leading these team meetings / training sessions?

Bigworm on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 10:16 AM

I will probably be the MVP at work today. My reasoning, because I woke up at woofed down 6 sliders for breakfast.

douglas on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 11:37 AM

douglas on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 11:38 AM

maybe even diarrhea

I just saw Adrian at lunch at Quiznos. I think he was jealous because I am rocking the blue jeans and a hoodie to work and I was eating with two fairly attractive females (and I didn't make them cry). I think he did a double take on them, too bad they are married Adrian. He did look dapper in his shirt and tie though. I say cleaning up is overrated. It goes along with that ambition thing.

We need to do a Sci luncheon again sometime. Who is down?

Jay on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 12:44 PM

Well, I lost 21-18. I made it a show of it at least. And I'm not nearly as sick as I was last time. Douglas-I will be heading to the bathroom before too long.

take something to read

I added a new element to our team meeting/training session MVP. I have now started the beforehand picks to click for all you WGN Chicago White Sox fans. I think this might catch on or I might get fired.

Jay on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 2:05 PM

No, Master Shake is Mike. Eric is a guy I work with.

jen on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 2:40 PM

jen on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 2:41 PM

Who's going to go eat a ton of nawlin's food this weekend at Gumbo? It is the weekend before Mardi Gras if you haven't noticed. The Voodoo Brewinig Co. is back up a nd running, and Gumbo's has the Blackend variety again.

Jay on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 2:52 PM

I know, because Amber fell through on her November stagger. How about one at the end of February? That will probably be the best time.

jen on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 2:54 PM

works for me!

adrian on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:09 PM

A girl from work put a water balloon on my desk with a note saying "Your Move" while i was away from my desk.

Phil on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:18 PM

that reminds me of a joke i read today:

At a job interview, the HR person asked this question to a female applicant:

Suppose a male co-worker you are standing next to says "Your hair smells very nice today, Amy", would you consider that sexual harrassment?

Amy: "Oh no. Never. It's just a compliment."

HR: "Even if that co-worker is a midget?"

Bigworm on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:24 PM

Word on the street be, all you can eat for $10 bucks on mardi gras at J. Gumbo's. Anybody off work?

Bigworm on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:24 PM

Adrian - do you know how put it on your desk? Pick it up and hit her with it.

Phil on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:33 PM

I'd walk by her desk with it and say "don't worry, I'm not going to throw it. I only make ladies moist after I'm done with work."

Brock on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:36 PM

I'm sure no one noticed this, and probably doesn't care.

But UC kicked the living shit out of Huggins/WVU last night. Mick Cronin has just beat both of his former bosses on the road this year with no players on the team with more than 1.5 years of Div I experience. I smell a coach of the year award. Well, except for the .500 record with losses to Belmont and Bowling Green.

Bigworm on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:55 PM

Okay, so I am looking online and this shirt made me laugh.

Bigworm on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:56 PM

And Douglas can wear this shirt when you go out without Sara

Jay on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 3:57 PM

I'm getting ready to leave my job for the last time. Kind of a weird feeling. I guess I'll get drunk tonight.

Adrian-Just throw it away and pretend like you never noticed it. That would really fuck with her.

joe on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 4:13 PM

Leave her a jelly doughnut with a note asking whether she likes em or ever had one. Be creative.

douglas on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 4:31 PM

wes, that's a fucking awesome shirt, sarah would be super pissed, probably not i lost my wedding ring at a bar pissed, but she'd be pissed, and it'd be funny

douglas on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 9:52 PM

well it's officially the end of an era...

bmac's miata is officially dead. the engine busted when he was driving from jacksonville to orlando for work. he's selling it for scraps and driving a rental until he gets a new car. we need to take shots for the miata

douglas on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 10:10 PM
