meh, i've had worse reasons to create a new post.

joe on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 9:06 AM

I got the call too last night. I think he called me right after he hung up the phone from Douglas. The way B-mac was talking I thought he was engaged or knocked Intern up. Then he follows up with the miata is dead. I was heartbroken. I asked how he was going to replace it and he said with something more practical. I had to take the cheap shot and ask, "what something that can hold a car seat?" We'll miss you Midnight Blue Miata, Natty Sci just got a little less gay.

douglas on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 9:41 AM

it was funny when bmac called, i answered and small talked for a second, and then he said, 'well you got a minute?' i was thinking it was going to be the big engagement announcement, and then he tells me the miata's dead. i just started laughing my ass, although i don't think he found it as funny. he wanted to keep it another year. of course anything that makes natty sci less gay can't be a bad thing

Bigworm on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 10:42 AM

So is anyone off on Tuesday and want to live at J. Gumbos, and then go back?

I know last year the whole Mardi Gras weekend had specials, so I plan on feasting there at some point.

Bigworm on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 11:24 AM

Sounds like a plan to me. When you decide to go hit me up.

Wrecking Crew on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 11:38 AM

Joe or anyone else, think there's any chance of riding this weekend? I know it's a little wet right now, but will the temps today (low 30's with wind chill in te 20's) and tomorrow (40's) be enough to freeze the ground.

joe on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 12:18 PM

I doubt it. We could always give it a shot.

joe on Friday, February 01, 2008 at 12:39 PM

Can we open a pool on what type of car or color b-mac buys next?

I was talking with a coworker at lunch about how I was worried about B-Mac calling thinking he did something stupid when actually it was just his miata dying. All I told her was it was a Miata and she follows up with "my gay brother in law drives a purple fusion." It was priceless.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 1:09 PM

So did you all have a pretty rowdy Super Bowl party?

joe on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 1:27 PM

compared to a lame doctor one, yes. The recycling bin looks pretty cool right now.

Good story, after everyone left I took all the bottles out to recycling and Greg was walking around the driveway. Michael was pulling the car into the garage and greg kept referring to him as his DD. He is 16 with a permit. They were at Captains Quarters last night and Greg was saying the pussy was fine there. Michael said they were all like 40. So greg follows up with something along the lines of if a chick wants to suck your cock you let her. All those 40 year olds had their eyes on you. You hit the jackpot. Kind of disturbing kind of funny.

Also Greg is buying michael a truck but michael wants "something to haul around ladies." So I convinced Michael a truck is a mattress on wheels with bench seats. Greg high fives me and michael scratches his head and says I've never thought of it that way.

My neighbors are awesome.

jen on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 1:28 PM

i thoroughly enjoyed the puppy bowl on animal planet. quite possibly the cutest thing ever.

douglas on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 1:33 PM

yeah, glad you enjoyed the puppy bowl. too bad you weren't at joe's to enjoy copious amounts of cleveland steamer references

joe on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 1:53 PM

And R. Kelly and Voodoo Tatum. Of course I think only 3 of us had any clue who Voodoo Tatum is. Friday Night Lights really is an entertaining TV show.

Phil on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 2:11 PM

I did some research on the salesgenie ad. Apparently last year they felt the press they got for being the worst super bowl ad brought them 55,000 new customers. So they set out to be the worst again this year. The ads were created and written by their CEO. I think the verdict is still out on whether or not they were meant to be racist to drum up controversy too...

Bigworm on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 2:24 PM

If they get another 55,000 new customers, who gives a shit right?

Bigworm on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 2:24 PM

AJ is now teething, so I spent the evening watching the super bowl and being careful not to lose a finger.

Bigworm on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 2:41 PM

or tomorrow since it is Mardi Gras

douglas on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 3:24 PM

here's what wwtdd.com said about the salesgenie ad:


USA Today has their annual list of the highest rated Super Bowl ads, and shockingly, Sales Genie isn't at the very bottom. Somehow the Iron Man (very cool final 5 seconds) ad and the Doritos girl (good voice) were considered worse. I don't know how. Here's how I assume the marketing department at sales genie works. STEP 1. Take 3 million dollars. STEP 2. Pile it up. STEP 3. Throw it in the trash. Once again they had ads they were just woefully inept and awful, but this year they added scathing racism. I can't even put my finger on why this one is so racist, but I just know that it is. I assume it's the accent. Because here's the thing, pandas don't talk, so when you give one a chopsticky accent, it just looks like you're making fun of Asians. It would be like you drew a bundle of dynamite with an Arab accent or a had a gay guy masturbating at a basketball game. I'm not sure what those last two would be products for, (maybe bullets and serious dicking) but I don't know what the fuck panda bears have to do with sales leads either, so suck on that.

jen on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 4:11 PM

j gumbo's made me super-ill last time i ate there, but i could be convinced to give them a second chance.

jen on Monday, February 04, 2008 at 5:04 PM

i just got my adage magazine, and they gave planters nuts (unibrow girl) and the ronald mcdonald house commercials the worst rating.

salesgenie got three stars, and they said 'like last years, these ads are simultaneously horrible and good, because the glengarry glen ross crowd doesnt care whether the cartoons-written by founder vin gupta- are funny (they arent), or verging on racist (the 'comical' indian and chinese accents).

What's going on this weekend though? The Cards had another good showing tonight before their big appearance on College Gameday vs the Hoyas. Anyone know what to make of this team yet? I mean two big (point diff) wins vs Marquette, but shit losses to Seton Hall and UConn, what the fuck? Early season losses I can chalk up to injuries, but some of this inconsistent bull shit is pissing me off.

joe on Tuesday, February 05, 2008 at 8:13 AM

UL will only play as good as Preston Knowles and Edgar Sosa. If Knowles plays good Will Scott will never touch the floor. If Sosa plays good we have a point guard.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 05, 2008 at 9:36 AM

UofL needs to exploit their depth in the post and continue to play hard nosed defense. If they do that they will make a decent run in the tourney because they are a very athletic team. They are not a very good shooting team (but they are streaky) so when they shoot 25+ 3 pointers in a game they will probably lose.

i think "jump around" is one of the most overplayed songs in college basketball before tip off. However, Danny Green from UNC dancing to it is pretty funny. He has done this for a couple years now and they lost the music before the VT game and it was the only home game they lost.

according to my sister, who used to work there, everybody at wave 3 has done everybody else except for scott reynolds, who's the only decent guy there. carrie is a hoebag by the way, my sister and her don't get along, but apparently carrie has done a lot of inter office fucking.

my favorite thing about the weathermen when shitty weather comes around, and john belski is guaranteed to do this during any tornado/snowstorm/thunderstorm, etc., is that they practically get a hard on b/c they're on screen for hours at a time. they're running back and forth in front of their weather maps, wiping the sweat off their forehead, and doing all they can to hide the stain they just got in their pants from nutting on camera

So all you can eat gumbo is such a great idea, yet so bad at the same time. It's so good once it hits your lips, but after the forth bowl you kinda want to puke. Then they try to fill you up on free beer. How dare them. I'm so happy the Voodoo brewery is open again. The Blackend Voodoo is great, and did I mention it was free.

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 06, 2008 at 10:31 AM

Sorry for having to bail late Chris, I didn't get home till 7ish and by the time I walked Daisy and would have had AJ packed up that would have been 8ish, and AJ gets a bath at 9 and then eats right afterward and then put to bed. So you figure I get there to J Gumbos at 8:15ish, I am leaving at 8:45 ish.

Barry on Wednesday, February 06, 2008 at 4:28 PM

bad news: bama got the top class. Good way to spin it to make myself feel better: there was an assload of talent in Alabama this year. Saban didn't get #1 ranking through nationwide recruitment, most of it was homegrown. Additionally he only got 1 Louisiana player, granted the player is a 4 star db that we could really use, but losing 1 isn't too bad. LSU 11th...not bad but disappointing for the defending national champs. Spin #2 there were no 5 star recruits in LA this year (except Benton but he committed last year) and the db that went to bama is the only real loss.

joe on Thursday, February 07, 2008 at 1:30 PM

I took a sick day yesterday. I took a nice elbow to my nose Tuesday night in our basketball game and I had a nice headache from that. The ref stopped the game after the first play of the game because he said he heard my nose crunch. There was no blood so I played the rest of the game, subs are overrated. The booze to take away the pain after the game didn't help any either. Turned into a nice mental and physical health day yesterday. Sleep in, watch some TV, take a nap, do some stuff around the house, take another nap, catch up on DVR while taking a nap. It was beautiful. My nose still hurts and is bruised. I need to quit doing stuff before I really hurt myself bad one of these days.

Article (stolen from fark) defending men who put off marriage

http://pajamasmedia.com/2008/02/ask_dr_helen_8.php

The thing that gets me worked up, is the article that this is a response. It postulates that men put off marriage because they are stuck in perpetual adolescence, and that this is terrible

1) I readily admit to being stuck in adolescence, however
2) I go to work everyday, pay my bills, and am looking for a house
3) I haven't even met a woman to marry
4) My life is awesome the way it is

The comments from the article are pretty interesting too.

The only thing I may disagree with is the woman bashing in the article. While many of the stories are horrible, I believe women have the same right to autonomy and independance as men (and adolescence too)

Brock on Thursday, February 07, 2008 at 11:33 PM

WHY AM I AT WORK!! Science is neat!

Jay on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 12:00 AM

To amend my previous post, I'm not saying marriage is bad, or that you shouldn't get married. I would like to get married someday. I just think that it is a personal decision, and everyone has a right to choose for themselves.

Barry on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 12:12 AM

you're not alone brock

Barry on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 12:36 AM

jay, that was an interesting article and learn from my parents' mistake...get married when you've found a person that you want to spend the rest of your life with and not a minute before.

Jay on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 12:38 AM

That's all I'm saying, Barry.

douglas on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 8:23 AM

that's the last time you gaywads talking about feelings can ever jump my ass for talking about politics

and to throw my two cents in, you can still be married and act like an adolescent, as wes has consistently demonstrated. i'm a dad and i act like a dumbass on occasion, but in my everyday life, i got a good job, i'm back in school, i pay my bills and take care of my family. i'm allowed to be a dumbass on occasion, which is basically true for pretty much everyone in the sci.

Bigworm on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 9:44 AM

I act like a retard when I am out with you guys, otherwise I am a family man.

This is how I see it. I personally think men are putting off marriage till later in life because we are more self sufficient creatures now. More men cook, clean, wash their clothes, etc... all at the same time more women have entered the work place ending the traditional 1950's concept of marriage. Couple that with people living longer, divorce rates are up, and more and more people are graduating college so essentially people "grow up" later in life now. It only makes sense for men (and women) to "put off" getting married.

douglas on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 9:51 AM

i was just fucking with you wes

Bigworm on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 9:52 AM

With that being said, keep in mind I come from a family where my dad and mom married at 20 and 18 and have been married ever since. I think this year is 35 years for them, so the fact that I didn't get married till I was 24 when I had a gf for several years was considered putting it off.

joe on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 10:07 AM

I feel as if in the coversation of self sufficient, dumbass, immature men who I am a pretty good "exhibit A". Also, I'm doing my best to corrupt Cuban too. I think I am making strides. I am winning some battles but we all know in the long run Diane will win.

According to my boss, don't get married, shack up, there is an escape route there. Women take that till death do you part seriously and might try to kill you.

douglas on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 11:32 AM

i'm trying to get as much mileage out of the old 'i let you move in, isn't that good enough routine?', but it's not going to last me much longer. You should've seen the impressive routine I came up with last time she brought up marriage, and how I artfully tried to dodge the question by asking 'am i not worth waiting for when the time is right?' well after doing this song and dance for a while, i found out that apparently i'm not

Bigworm on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 11:47 AM

Douglas you can still stretch that out. Wait till you get the, "you will marry me or I'll break your legs" spill. Not sure if she was serious or not, but I do like my legs so I figure I better choose, and choose wisely.

First, its become acceptable for a professional or college athlete to cry like a little baby every time they lose (or win) a game, then guys are talking about how marriage makes them all warm and fuzzy, next thing you know before you jerk off you're going to need to light some candles and start a bubble bath. Jesus, whatever happened to being a man.

joe on Friday, February 08, 2008 at 12:48 PM

Crying over a sporting event is way more acceptable then crying at your wedding. The only tears acceptable by a man at their own wedding are when you get kicked in the nuts or bitch slapped for crying. Even then you better suck it up and walk it off.

ESPN radio this week was talking about Valentine's Day. Colin Cowherd said a grat Valentine's Day gift would be a bottle of bourbon and a night of passion.

joe on Monday, February 11, 2008 at 9:04 AM

How do you get 100 cubans in a shoe box?

Tell them it floats.

Tentative plan for Friday night:

The Cuban Freedom Party

We are celebrating the day Cuban claims he became an American citizen (the day he came over on a floating door) with Diet Cuba Libres in a tall glass with a lime, cheap mexican beer, tequila and any other ethnic jokes we can make (Cuban wants sakibombs, beer pong, Sir Mix a Lot karaoke (it's Japanese for empty orchestra, hauntingly beautiful) and your favorite disney movie). All are invited except anyone with connections to the INS. What better way to celebrate 27 years in the US then with booze? The party doesn't stop till someone gets deported.

Cuban also takes the first part of the CPA exams Friday so it should be a good night for all with drunk Cuban out.

joe on Monday, February 11, 2008 at 9:56 AM

Cuban and i are requesting Fat Jimmys on 5th street by Louisville Gardens for a pizza buffet.


Per ESPN radio, what is more emasculating, a woman that is taller then you, more athletic then you or makes more money then you?

Bigworm on Monday, February 11, 2008 at 10:32 AM

douglas on Monday, February 11, 2008 at 11:09 AM

i'm down for a lunch, let me know where. i can do friday, i have a wide array of disney movies to share, one of the advantages of having a kid. and the answer is more athletic than you.

If she is more athletic, it may mean she is out of your league, therefore its a good thing, and there is nothing wrong with a suga mama.

Jay on Monday, February 11, 2008 at 12:04 PM

Any woman I date is bound to be more athletic and make more money than me. And if you can find a woman that is taller than me is a freak of nature anyway.

I'd go with makes more money, on the caveat that it would have to be a whole multiple of what I make more than me (a few thousand dollars doesn't matter, but if she's making close to 100k, that would be too much for me. I don't need a sugar mama. I'm crazy, I know.)

My manager told me I should I called in because of the dangerous roads in Louisville to which I responded, I couldn't, it's my first day.

It took me 2.5 hours to get to work that day.

4-8 inches of snow, that ain't shit.

Although the state does have an inclement weather leave policy. Basically, if we don't feel safe to drive into work, we can take off the time. We have four months to make it up, or after that we can use up our personal leave.

Jay on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 8:02 AM

My car is frozen over, because I don't have a garage. It's going to be awhile before I can get out. I keep calling the lab to tell them I'll be late, but no one is answering the phones.

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 8:27 AM

This TARC schedule is confusing

douglas on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 8:32 AM

i'm still at home, probably going in about 9:30ish. i'm sure the roads aren't as horrible as being reported, hell sarah made it to indiana in one piece, so if she can do it, i'm sure anyone can. i just work with a bunch of people with kids who don't have school today, so there's no one in the office. my car is frozen over too though

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 8:43 AM

I'm walking down the street to catch a bus in a half hour. Cuban just left. They plowed our street and there is a pile of snow behind and next to Cubans car.

Phil on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 8:52 AM

i actually got to work early today. Downtown is fine. I didn't bother going up the hill on Jane, it looked retardedly dangerous.

Only three other people made it into work

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 9:15 AM

so my roommate mary and her boyfriend were both parked behind me. mary gets up and i tell her it took a long time to clean off my car, and i have to leave so they should get up and clean there's off so they can let me out. i go upstairs to get ready and she goes back to bed. so i'm already kinda late so i tell her she needs to get up and move their cars. she says "i don't think we can..." um, the road is plowed. finally they got up and 20 minutes later i could leave. i'm so pissed.

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 9:18 AM

my clients in israel and south africa really don't care if it snowed here. i can't wait till my lease is up in march.

Cuban on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 9:32 AM

So is lunch still on?

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:03 AM

i'll go if you guys will go.

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:32 AM

My day is wasted I don't care

Cuban on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:35 AM

I'm down, I need to eat something.

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:36 AM

what time?

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:44 AM

noon

Cuban on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:45 AM

Noon works for me

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:49 AM

Damn, maybe I'll go to work so I can eat lunch first with you guys.

Still sitting at home with little guy.

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 10:57 AM

ok... i'll be there at noon.

douglas on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:02 AM

can't do lunch, just got to work, gotta work thru lunch today

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:13 AM

So as you all can see I successfully made it in to work on time using public transportation that wasn't my regular bus. That puts the score at:

Joe 4 Mother Nature 0

Phil on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:26 AM

what's your regular bus? Can't you just take the #19 all the way into downtown?

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:33 AM

I regularly take the #53 Breckinridge express bus that only runs from 7-8 in the morning and 4:30-5:30 in the afternoon and takes I-64, since I was delayed I took the #19 in Frankfort this morning.

Jerome on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:42 AM

Snowball fights, sled rides and fort building are fun even in freezing rain!

douglas on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:42 AM

when i worked at humana in college i took the #19 all the way down frankfort everyday. it was always fun to see the same weirdos everyday

Jay on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:46 AM

I got to work about an hour late, which wasn't too bad. The place is empty, though. Like douglas said, no kids are in school, so every one is watching them. My boss, who usually gets there at about 7:15, didn't get there until 8, so I don't feel too bad.

On another note, apparently Kellee and G broke up a few months ago. I just found out about that today.

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:47 AM

oh no!!! can't they reunite for the stagger? or maybe if g goes, adrian won't be bringing that chick from work...

Tiffany on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 11:51 AM

I would meet you guys for lunch but there is only like 25 of us here out of 170 or so people so they are chaining us to our desks.

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:23 PM

i love my boss.

me: "what do you get a cuban for his birthday?"
my boss: "a green card."

Cuban on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:24 PM

Now she has to come to the party.

Cuban on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:25 PM

Cougars are always welcome

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:31 PM

For those that didn't catch my memo yesterday, the Cuban Freedom Party is actually a birthday party. He claims to have been born in this country 27 years ago. I think some people missed that in the joke. Someone bring the pinata and the sombreros.

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:32 PM

it gets better. she just brought me a green piece of paper and said 'here, maybe he can use this'

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:32 PM

i love my job

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:40 PM

Can you fill the pinata with bourbon?

jen on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:53 PM

seems like a bad idea when you hit it with a stick...

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 1:55 PM

Not at all, you just surround the pinata in a loose plastic bag and put a funnel at the bottom of it. Maybe we should use beer instead.

cuban, let me know your preference, kaelyn's going to let you borrow one of her movies for your birthday/immigration party, she heard you like disney movies. I got happy feet, care bears, spongebob squarepants, dragon tales, the pacifier, cars, or even some little einstein.

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 2:26 PM

That new movie with the rock as a QB.

joe on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 3:10 PM

Hey Cuban, I thought of another mix for the Rhythms of Cuba mix besides the Mexican Hat Dance. We can play a little Led Zeppelin "Immigrant Song"

Adrian, the movie was freakin' hilarious. The sheer stupidity of it, and some of the intentional/unintentional comedy was great.

joe on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at 9:24 AM

I got drunk and saw it in theaters on opening night. It was awesome. I haven't laughed that much in a long time. Did anybody see Black Snake Moan? Is that another quality Samuel L Jackson movie?

adrian on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at 9:37 AM

I was laughing at it also on how dumb it was. But i still do not understand how it received any budget money and i would never,ever,ever,ever classify that movie as being awesome.

joe on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at 9:41 AM

The movie was budgeted because Samuel L Jackson said he would do it

So this girl was passing out the stupid valentine's you passed out as kids in school and the one I got has a picture of a dog and it says "throw me a bone, Valentine." How do you get the job as Valentine writer?

Tiffany on Thursday, February 14, 2008 at 10:52 AM

I think all you have to do is pass 2nd grade and have opposable thumbs. I got a valentine today that had Dora the Explorer on it that said " I a'Dora You". I think what makes it worse is it was from my boss and she is like 50 something...not cute.

joe on Thursday, February 14, 2008 at 11:02 AM

What are more creative the paper valentine notes with Dora the Explorer and, who is the kids love these days, Hannah Montana or the valentine chalk candy hearts with the little note?

went the other route for valentines day. We went with "The only thing colder and icier than this weather is my ex-gf's heart. Happy valentines day :("

Molly looked right at me when they read the team name.

Some team showed up and brought the thunder with their team name. They were "Eugene and Eugeniuses." That's just a solid team name.

so one of the vendors we buy printing from screwed up our order yesterday. in an email they sent to me this morning saying it would be fixed today, i scroll down to see the email from the customer service rep to someone else in their company that says "see the note from jen below. they are such a pain." i guess she forgot to delete that part.

awesome. i would be less of a pain if they'd stop screwing our shit up.

sorry i killed it.

what time are the festivities beginning tonight?

douglas on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 11:15 AM

i'm having dinner and will probably be over right after that, around 8 or 9 i'm guessing. of course i'll have bourbon, i don't care if it's cuban or not, i'm still drinking it. although i'll partake in a tequila shot or two i'm sure

jen on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 11:17 AM

are we going out or staying in? i guess my question is do i need to bring food?

douglas on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 11:18 AM

oh yeah, i'll bring the pacifier too

douglas on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 11:18 AM

jen, a quick answer would be it depends on how drunk we get

Bigworm on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 11:28 AM

race it into your system.

joe on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 12:48 PM

Um, Cuban is probably home already. I get home around 5:00 and we are running to the liquor store and to the grocery for snacks. I'd say the general rule of thumb anytime after 7 we will be home. You can bring snacks if you want. We have stated that we wouldn't be surprised if we don't leave the house tonight. If we do leave, more power to us.

I can't wait till I can get older and be the creepy old guy. This guy that rides my bus home that I basically only acknowledge with a head not randomly started talking to me yesterday. He saw me out at lunch with my lunch crew which is two married females. First time i've talked to him and he asked me if those two fine ladies were treating me for Valentine's Day. Didn't help my other co-worker on the bus with me goes, yep he's a ladies man. The old man kept on going and on and it went from funny to creepy quick. So no wthe people on my bus think I'm a pimp. Hell yeah!

douglas on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 1:03 PM

i think it's getting to the point where i need to follow you around for a day. these things don't happen to other people

joe on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 1:09 PM

While I was eating some lady started banging on the window waving at me while we were eating. One of the people I was with asked if I know who it is and it took a minute and I realized it was my bus driver.

I think a mix of my being a nice guy and I kind of ass kiss a little and fuck with people just to stay on their good sides because you never know when you might need their help or cross them again has made other people feel too comfortable around me and people start violating my comfort zone.

joe on Friday, February 15, 2008 at 1:10 PM

Wrecking Crew on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 12:03 PM

Joe, Jay, and anyone else who cares... I found this interesting album while dicking around not doing work. Rebel Meets Rebel is the self titled album put together by David Allan Coe fronting Pantera's rhythm section (drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, bassist Rex Brown, and guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott). I listened to some of the samples and it's definitely unique. As stated by yahoo music put it "the end result is less a fusion of metal and country than an all-out collision of the two." It sounds like they were doing this while with Damageplan until Dimebag got shot, so it's his last piece of music.

Phil on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 1:23 PM

Someone forwarded this to me, thought it was funny:
Clemens: You want answers?

Congressman: I think I'm entitled to them.

Clemens: You want answers?

Congressman: I want the truth!

Clemens: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has baseballs. And those balls have to be hit by men with bats. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Congressman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for steroids and you curse HGH. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that HGH, while illegal, probably sells tickets. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, sells tickets...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that mound. You need me on that mound. We use words like fastball, slider, splitfinger...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent playing a sport. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and falls asleep to the Sportscenter clips I provide,! then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a bat and dig in. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

Congressman: Did you order the HGH?

Clemens: (quietly) I did the job you sent me to do.

Congressman: Did you order the HGH?

Clemens: You're goddamn right I did!!

Jay on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 4:25 PM

Adrian, you don't owe me anything. You owe it to yourself. Chris-saying joe got drunk and did something stupid is an understatement. Cuban, have you talked to him yet?

douglas on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 9:11 PM

i don't remember anything about being at saints, i left my phone in the cab, and i'm hungover. last time i mix and match with wine, beer, and bourbon all in the same night. i vaguely remember walking to saints, but that's about it

The only thing I heard about this weekend is Adrian's friend Jessie came out and her friend Phil is a pretty interesting fellow when he is hammered.

Trade rumors?

Bigworm on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Personally, I'd like to hear how the evening went through Douglas's eyes, and then Joe's eyes (give us some of your thoughts at the time as well) and then Big Jay can swoop in and give us the real shit because I am guessing he was the sober driver.

jen on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:17 PM

no, tim was the sober driver. it may have been for the last time, though.

Jay on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:17 PM

Tim will never speak to us again

jen on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:17 PM

scratch that. it was definitely the last time.

Jay on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:18 PM

Jessie's friends were cool. Phil was pretty fun. Her other friend is f'n crazy, though. Still not the craziest one that night.

jen on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:19 PM

not by far.

jen on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 12:27 PM

actually, tim said you were 'pretty stand up guys' for the most part. he was mostly just pissed that cuban got left on his birthday.

douglas on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 1:05 PM

wes, i would love to tell you about the nite thru my eyes, but that's really hard for me to do. Let me tell you what i do know. i remember bits and pieces about walking to saints, however i don't remember exactly who i was walking with. i think some people drove, and i was one of the dumbasses that elected to walk. don't remember walking in, i vaguely remember walking out to meet sarah in the cab, don't remember saying bye to anyone. don't remember the cab ride home, the only memory i have from actually getting inside is being in the shower, getting out, and looking at my floor thinking how dirty it was and having to clean it up. apparently i puked on myself, took a shower to clean it off, and i do remember cleaning the puke while i'm still stone cold drunk. and sarah was passed out for all of this

douglas on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 1:22 PM

and sorry if i pissed anyone off for real....

funny story, so i go to pick my phone up from yellow cab b/c the cabbie answered my phone over the weekend and told me he'd drop it off at the office. didn't know what time, but i just went at lunch. so my phone's not there yet, the dispatch mgr. was real nice and tried to track down the driver. finally i have him just call my phone to see if the guy answers (i'd been checking my messages all weekend and he only answered the once), sure enough he did, i guess when he saw on caller id he freaked out. keep in mind this guy is foreign as shit and probably not 100% legal. the dispatch mgr calmly asked the guy to bring in the phone today, and this guy starts having a fit, i can hear him over the phone cussing in indian or something, and this mgr is saying 'no, i'm not asking you, i'm ordering you.' he started off nice and was taking it, but i guess the cabbie said something out of line and this mgr. just started talking down to this dude bad. i don't remember exactly what he said, but it was something along the lines of how he's the one that 'authorizes' him, so he will listen to him and have the phone back in today. he gets off the phone, looks and me and smiles, and said 'you'll have your phone today, and if you don't, he won't be working, and he might not be staying here.' i wasn't trying to get the cabbie fired or anything, but it was funny as hell

Bigworm on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 2:16 PM

Douglas - I bet cabbie called home several times on your phone.

douglas on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 2:25 PM

i wouldn't doubt it for one second, i've already thought of that, if he did though, he's getting canned for sure. and i forgot to mention, it took me 20-30 mins. to get back to my office after leaving, as soon as i walked in, the dispatch mgr. called to tell me they had my phone, so i'm going back after work to pick it up.

Bigworm on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 2:26 PM

joe on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 6:08 PM

I think we did it to Ryan Work. Don't forget the left handed fungo and the bucket of steam.

Jay on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 6:33 PM

Okay, here's what happened, in great detail, without mincing words

There were a bunch of us hanging out at Joe's house, (Joe, Cuban, Douglas, Sarah, Brodie, Tiffany, Laura, Jen, Tim, Adrian, and myself). Most of us were drinking, because we thought we would stay there or walk up to the saint matthews bars. Sarah left, and then Marc and Tiffany. Tim decided to drive, so he, Jen, Adrian, and Cuban got in his car to go to Saints. Joe, Douglas, Laura and I decided just to walk. When we got there, we had a few drinks, and then I made a dumb comment about adrian having a 20,000 dollar watch, which was a stupid joke. Laura picked up on this and said she would do anything for 20,000 dollars, and ended up talking about sucking horse cock. We decided to leave, and Akiko's was suggested. I said we should go to Spring Street because their karaoke is much better than akiko's. Laura claims that her car is big enough to fit all seven of us (this is when douglas left). Tim, Jen, Joe, and Laura leave in Tim's car to trade it for Laura's. Adrian, Cuban and I were picked up a little later. Well, when the pulled up, we all had to cram into the back seat, because Laura neglected the fact that the back was full of shit, and there was no room back there. The seating arrangements ended up being Tim driving, Laura in the passenger seat, Adrian, Cuban, and I in the back seat, Jen on Adrian's lap, and Joe's torso in Cuban's lap and his legs on Laura. On the way, Tim couldn't hear the directions because laura had the music up way too loud. Then, Jen pulls out her camera and takes a picture of us, and then a picture of a missing dog poster that was in the back seat. Well, laura went ape shit about this, and when we stopped at one point (we had missed the turn because Tim couldn't hear anything) Laura turned off the car and started yelling at Jen, although it really didn't make sense. Once we get to Spring street, We all get out of the car. Tim storms off with Jen following him, and Adrian, Cuban and I followed them. We went inside to cool off, while laura had hopped in the driver seat. Joe tried calming her down, but after about 5-10 minutes, they just took off, leaving us stranded. Needless to say, we were pretty pissed. We called a cab, and while we waited for it, both Jen and Cuban got into texting conversations with Laura (while she was drunk and driving, smart move). Laura eventually agreed to pick us up, but at that point there was no way in hell we were going to get in the car with her. Moral of the story- Laura is fucking crazy, and we would do well to stay away. Joe-I don't know what's going on between you too, but you really need to be careful. She is nothing but trouble.

P.S. I learned that the dog had been found safe a sound a month earlier.

Jay on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 6:34 PM

There is a whole different story from that night that involves Adrian, but I'll let him tell it.

Cuban on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 8:37 AM

Woohoo Castro resigned! I may have to return to the Motherland

jen on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 8:53 AM

Cuban on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 10:03 AM

Thank you Jen.

Of coarse I beat you to it, as soon as I saw it I knew you or Douglas would make a comment. So baby Moses decided to nip it in the butt.

joe on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 10:21 AM

So will the trade embargo and all that shit end? If so and you want to go back can I go with you? Will it be cheaper to fly to miami and float or fly straight into Cuba?

jen on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 10:23 AM

i just know it will be much easier to find a cuban gift next year.

adrian on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 10:35 AM

jay you summed that up quite nicely

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 10:45 AM

Is this Laura the same one that did a 3 am drink off with me on New Years? If so, I concur, that bitch is crazy and is best to stay away....and I only met her that day.

douglas on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 11:07 AM

cuban, congratulations on your birthday, i did see castro resigned and i meant to get on here first thing this morning and post a link, but i got busy. they were saying on the news that cuba's expected economic development over the next few years, in one day, just grew to like ten times what was expected.

and wes, yes that's the same laura. cuban told me like a month ago they'd been doing whatever the hell they're doing but he acted like it was a big secret, come friday, apparently everyone else already knew. i don't remember exactly how rude i was to her, but i do remember making the comment about her getting her ass kicked in your drink off, and how i didn't recognize her without her head in a garbage can. i was just fucking with her and she seemed to take it well, of course i guess i missed the return of the drunk laura. what is it with joe and girls named laura?

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 11:25 AM

Yeah she got her ass kicked and I got my ass kicked as well, there were no winners in that drink off.

Phil on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 11:41 AM

everyone is a winner in a drink off

Jay on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 11:48 AM

Cuban-happy birthday. How old are you?

Adrian-Thanks

jen on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 12:54 PM

i probably shouldnt have reminded her that she was crying in her whiskey either. and it probably didnt help when someone introduced her to tim and he said "i remember you. i held the trash can while you puked on new years"

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 1:38 PM

I can say, that I don't blame Tim for being pissed. But let's get real here, Tim doesn't like to be around that stuff, so why he would knowingly put himself in that situation baffles me. With that being said, Jen, he must really like you to keep subjecting himself to us assholes.

douglas on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 1:58 PM

yeah, we're pretty predictable that way. very good at pissing off others, whether it's on purpose or not.

jen on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 2:09 PM

well i don't think any of us knowingly put ourselves in this particular situation. if i would have known that taking a picture of a lost dog poster for a dog that's been found for a month would get my ass left at a bar, believe me, i would have stayed home. but you just don't bank on that sort of craziness.

jen on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 2:10 PM

wow, it sounds even dumber when you say it out loud.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 2:23 PM

It sounds so stupid, that you know you aren't making it up....because people just don't make up somethign that stupid sounding.

joe on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 at 3:19 PM

I just overheard the chick in the cube next to me talking about a veteran claiming "the clap". I pop my head over the cubicle wall and say "I'll never forget the day I found out I was allergic to penecillin." I'm glad she has a sense of humor.

is UK going to make teh tournament this year? Is second place in the East touranment worthy with their 3 non-conference wins? Is the fact that they are UK and will draw fans get them in the tourney?

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 8:16 AM

most likely. they've got 8 conference wins, with 4 more home games and a few on the road. No SEC team with 10 wins has ever been kept out of the NCAA, and a UK team that's putting it together at the end of the year (they've won like 7 of their last 8), coupled with a good run in the SEC tourney, they'll be fine. with that said, there's not much room at all for error here, so with another couple losses, that could easily go out the window, they've got to finish very strong, but they've got road games at TN and at FL to help push up their RPI ranking, if they can get one of those with 3 home wins, they're in

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 8:18 AM

and i don't care how pretentious it sounds, it's UK. UK is always a draw on national TV, always travels well for tournaments, can always pack an arena. if they're on the bubble with like a miami of ohio or some other mid major school like that, UK will get the nod every time

joe on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 8:42 AM

I heard the 10 win SEC fact yesterday. I think it was Rick Bozich on the radio had a listener drop that. His response was "has a 10 win SEC team ever lost to San Diego and Gardner Webb?". San Diego is 8-1 in their conference this year and will end up 3rd behind Gonzaga and St. Mary's, both I think are ranked. I think they are 15-10 so that loss doesn't look that bad when you really think about it.

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 10:02 AM

You guys have basically summed up my thoughts, but I give them anyways.

When I hear the point that no 10 win SEC team has ever been left out my first comment is no 10 win SEC team lost to GW and San Diego in the same season. It is true that UK does have some bad losses, but they also have some good wins. Being one of only 2 teams that beat UT is pretty good and they were ranked #1 in the RPI at that time, also the first win over Vandy helped out. The loss to Gardner Webb is bad, however, San Diego is looking better now considering they are pretty much neck and neck with Gonzaga for the Mountain West Title.

I think UK needs to make it to the SEC tournament as the E2 seed, but also, I do not think they can afford to lose more than 1 game for this final stretch, which will prove to be tough since they play Arkansas, Ole Miss, UT and UF still to go. If UK does make it to the E2 seed, they get a first round buy, which can reallly help those guys out to make the finals as they will already play a worn down team. If UK gets to 21 wins, they are definately in.

As of today, UK's RPI is 71, their SOS is somewhere between 16 and 27 (I have seen both numbers).

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 10:04 AM

Say if you have a son that is a pretty talented basketball player. Would you rather him go to a top notch program like a UCLA, UK, UofL, Memphis, etc.. or go to a smaller mid major and own the competition? Do you think his chances of making the NBA are better at the smaller school or bigger school?

Jerome on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 10:26 AM

If the only thing holding him back from the NBA is the age requirement, I'd like to see him in a school with a team in a high media coverage conference, a program not TOO steeped in history (so NO to UK, IU, and UCLA) a coach who isn't bigger than the program (so NO to U of L, Duke, Syracuse, Memphis, etc.), and a place where the kid is surrounded by talented guys who are nowhere NEAR as good as he is. Jason Kidd at Cal ... Mayo at USC ... Durant at Texas ... Oden at OSU.

If the kid just needs some polishing, you send him to guys like Coach K, Izzo, Calipari and Pitino. Hell, even OTS can help shape future role players in the NBA.

This is all assuming that college is just a stepping stone to an inevitable professional basketball career.

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 10:28 AM

is AJ already showing signs of promise?

Jerome on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 10:33 AM

I think I saw on scouts.com that if he can fill the lane like he fills a diaper, he has the potential to be one of the great big men in the game.

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 10:48 AM

Sorry I think Gonzaga and SD are in the West Coast Conference. The Mountain West Conference hosts perennial powerhouses Utah, BYU, and New Mexico.

AJ is too happy of a kid, always smiling so I am going to have to develop a mean streak in him if he wants to play down low. Unfortunately, even though there is some height in my family, there isn't big man height so we are going to have to stick to jump shots and work on the perimter defense. But if he is 1/2 as deadly as he is with peeing on the changing table pads as he is with a basketball, watch out!

Phil on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:04 AM

I'd go to a school like Xavier, put up 25 points a game, win a couple games in the tournament and then leave after my sophomore year. Scouts and GMs would rather take a guy from a small school, Europe or high school that has "potential" than someone who was averaging 17 points a game as a senior, no matter how proven he is.

I always liked Malcom Gladwell's article on how he would be a GM: http://gladwell.typepad.com/gladwel...heuristics.html

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:05 AM

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:30 AM

Makes you wonder why Duke and UCONN don't win it all every year? Like I have stated in the past, I will state again. Coack K does less with more talent than any coach in the history of the game.

Trust me, if that is your reaction never have kids. I have been thrown up on, crapped on, peed on and God knows what else to the delight of my 6 month old son.

Barry on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:35 AM

joe, i got your message. as far as what LSU is going to do at QB, I suspect this indefinite suspension will end once spring training starts or shortly thereafter. I have to admit with our other options (a Harvard transfer and a redshirt freshman) not having seen the field yet, I don't see Les pulling the plug on Perrilloux. This kid has all the talent in the world, but apparently doesn't see or doesn't care about how to best use it. Background info to give you a feel for the kid: when he came here he said he was going to win the Heisman his freshman year (pretty obnoxious given he had compete with Russel and Flynn to even be a starter).

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:42 AM

wes, when those solid ones start smelling, you'll be wishing you had the infant poop again, especially when they shit down their leg and up their body in the middle of the night, and you're giving him a bath while his clothes and the sheets are in the laundry, and you pray that you have an extra set of sheets that are clean to put on his bed so he doesn't have to sleep with you, and this entire time you are vomiting because the 'solid' turds smell way worse than the infant ones you had gotten used to.

or i guess you could make abby do it, i just didn't have that luxury

Jay on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:51 AM

Everyone I meet that has kids tells me not to have them. I got that from 2 people just today.

Barry on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:52 AM

the way I see it you have to options when he starts on solid food Wes. Deal with full strength meat eating baby poo or make him a vegan. The poo won't be as bad, but he'll be a pussy. Better yet make him a vagitarian. What up!

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:56 AM

Vagitarian is the way to go fo sho!

Jay - Kids are great, you just have to be flexible and responsible enough knowing that this kids life depends on you. Understand, things are not on your schedule all the time any longer. Thankfully, I have a very flexible job year round and Abby is pretty flexible 9 months out of the year.

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 12:03 PM

it's good that your wife is flexible...

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 12:04 PM

as for having kids, people that say that stuff about not having them are either horrible parents or have never had their own kids. it's a personal choice, i'd never get on someone for not wanting them, i can understand that sentiment, but i wouldn't trade it for anything

Phil on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 12:05 PM

hey, hey, hey douglas would you want to have your kid, OR a nice cup of cocoa while getting a blow job?

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Well said Douglas. Who ever thought you'd be the voice of reason.

douglas on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 12:11 PM

well, phil, i-i-i don't know. i mean, kids are cool and all, but they shit and stuff, like all the fucking time, and you can't take them to bars. and, you know, a nice cup of cocoa, especially while you're getting a blowjob, is awesome. and, also, you know, i mean, a kid can't give you a blowjob. well i guess they could, but then you'd go to jail, and that would suck balls, so you wouldn't be able to enjoy it, you know? so, i-i-i-i think i'd have to go with the cocoa and the BJ

note the top stories section. the first one is about julio jones testifying in a murder case (good for him) but the next 5 are about suspensions and arrests. It seems every year at ths time the headlines are the same. Why is that? Is it: a)my skewed view on things; b)media reporting these things more regularly because there is no other football news; c)kids getting in more trouble because they're not in practice; coaches and communities keeping things hush hush during the season and either d)releasing news later or e) just not letting word get out during the season. I suspect that it is a combination of a few of these. Thoughts? Collegiate baseball guys?

there was all kinds of shit swept under the rug when petrino was here, no doubt. i think that's part of why he left, he was on top w/ the orange bowl win, he knew he was losing talent, and there were some unsavory character issues he didn't want to fuck with

the funny thing is I suck at defense. I'll stick with a pair for every TD reception, maybe 2. Apparently this is a very competitive league with college football players and my team sucks. If I decide to play I can't wait for the Joe vs Phil flag football grudge match at Tom Sawyer park. I hope he lines up across from me.

Bigworm on Monday, February 25, 2008 at 10:05 PM

Well McFadden is a stud, just living up to the billing I guess.

So I am watching the combine LBs were tonight. Ali Highsmith didn't run a very good 40 yard time, 4.93 and then a 5.0x which really had me surprised. However, in the agility part he did a heck of a job, cat quick reflexes and fluid hips make his cutting near picture perfect.

Wesley Woodyard ran a 4.54 and then a 4.49 40 yard time giving him a 4.51 second, 2nd fastest LB time. The analyst were gushing over him big time after the drills so it sounds like he is playing himself up the draft. Now how far up the draft, I am unsure.

Bigworm on Monday, February 25, 2008 at 10:07 PM

At the combine 2 guys have actually ran a sub 4.3 40 yard dash. The receiver from App. State (Dexter Jackson?) and the running back from East Carolina ran 4.28 and 4.24, respectively.

Apparently when the storms came through and I lost power for a couple days they fixed it shitty. They did a "bandaid" fix and were supposed to come out and fix it already but they haven't.

jen on Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 11:49 AM

okay, so i've had the craziest weekend. my phone was stolen while i was at the mall this weekend, and the chick who took it used it to call my parents in tennessee and tell them that they had kidnapped me, demanded a ransom, and said they'd call back in 2 hours with the terms. they then called my sister and told her that they had murdered me, and if she didn't send money, they'd come and kill her too. so they sat there thinking i was dead for three hours until i called my parents (not knowing what had happened) and my dad hands the phone to a police officer that came to their house. eventually the girl left my phone at a rally's at 18th and hill, where the police went to go get it.

so, needless to say, if anyone called you this weekend and said i was dead, dont get your hopes up; it was a nasty prank.

douglas on Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 12:38 PM

jen on Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 12:47 PM

my initial thought is to put personal ads in the paper saying "free sex. men and women welcome, bring your friends" and include her phone number.

giving her number to the cops might be high on my list of things to do...

by the same thing happening to mindy, i didn't mean the calling and telling people she was dead. I was talking about someone having her stuff and leaving it at a rally's

jen on Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at 12:55 PM

well, the cops don't want to trace it until the county attorney tells them what the charges are. the county attorney wont tell them what the charges are until they tell them who they are pressing charges against. it's kind of a vicious circle. i spent the last two days at the court house trying to figure this shit out. the law isnt really clear on demanding ransom for someone who isnt kidnapped.

Sadly I don't have any control over it. Basically I just ripped apart the weather.com's html to find the map and make it bigger and on it's own page.

So if UK wins out, UK wins the SEC East
If, UT beats UK and wins the rest of their games....UT wins the East
If, UK and Vandy are tied for the lead then Vandy wins the tie breaker.

Come on, what are the odds UK wins out? Withthe way they've been playing this year, they have the potential to lose any one of those games. I'd almost give UL a better chance at winning out than UK. Even if UK wins the East, they could still fuck up the SEC tourney and not make the big dance.

i got my passport quickly when i applied back in sept. or something, i had it in october. as for UK, if they win the east, they're in, regardless of what they do in the tournament, not saying they will, just sayin...

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 at 11:43 AM

Sure UK has a chance not to win out, but I have to like my chances of winning the East. The big road block is UT at their place. I see us going 3-1, but if UK wins the East, there is no way they don't go dancing. Yes, we will have bad loses to GW and San Diego at home, however, our RPI will increase substancially and we will be in the low 40s.

We have Ole Miss (UK is 6-0 at home in SEC play against a team that hasn't won on the road in the SEC)
UT (2 loses in the conference, ready to make a statement after losing to Vandy)
USC (on the road, Dave Odom's last chance to beat UK...he wants this one badly)
UF - young team doesn't play well on the road.

There is no reason why UofL shouldn't win out their schedule.

The Vandy game was a bunch of little things that all came together for the perfect storm.

I think Vandy shot somethign like 65% for the game (game not a half), and UK shot low 30%. You are going to lose that one everytime.

Adrian, that guy is retarded. Like Phil stated, in order to get the HD signal, you need the cables that can carry it. I have component cables carrying my signal and it works fine, of course my TV is broadcasting in 1080i and not 1080p, but I think you will be fine either way.

Here is an article from Fark about applying Title IX to physical sciences and engineering.

http://www.american.com/archive/200...more-like-a-man

It was kind of upsetting, until I came across this comment in the threads

Perhaps the question should be why there are MEN in those tracks either. Horrible workload, terrible social stigma, awful career rewards compared to other fields that require similar talent and drive - why the heck would anyone go in for that?

It's not that smart women aren't smart enough, it's that they're too smart to fall for that miserable dead-end. Notice how many are going into other more rewarding carreers? If they can do math and science, they end up as doctors or pharma researchers, where the money (and more socializing and personal reward) is.

This pretty much sums it up. Right Brock?

Bigworm on Saturday, March 08, 2008 at 2:42 PM

I had to take my dog to the VET today and ended up driving the Camry because I didn't want to put the dog in the Acura. Big mistake, Acura has all-wheel drive. I made it there okay, us momentum on my side and on the way back got stuck...so I had to put it in reverse then drive and then reverse and drive...probably doing this 5 or 6 times....and then the light bulb goes off.....USE THE LOW GEAR RETARD! Yeah, so then I put it in L and made it up the small hill......not all that easy but I made it up it regardless.

So I drove home in the lower gears L and 2 and everything was just fine. Turned into my neighborhood and slid about almost side swiping a light pole, but I managed to counter steer and right the car.

I saw a few cars slide off the road and if I didn't have Daisy with me and had the Acura, I would have stopped to help them...but I was like every other jackass and just drove by. That sucks, but I didn't want to chance anything.

Fuck the Catholic Church. St Patty's Day is March 17th. They can't go move a drinking holiday just because it's holy week. Monday isn't even one of the important days of the week like Holy Thurs, Good Fri, and Holy Sat.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, March 12, 2008 at 12:42 AM

The Irish are keeping the date the same despite what the church says, so that's good enough for me.

Why can't we celebrate it Friday through Monday? Just a thought. I did hear that this is the first time in something like 90 years that St. Patrick's Day has fallen during Holy Week. I'm blaming it on Global Warming.

Colin Cowherd on Marriage and dating:

Dating should be like the NFL combine. Do some scouting, give them a workout, see them without their shirt on, ask your wingman Mel Kiper. If you get lucky your high school sweetheart will be like 6th round pick Tom Brady.

When this whole till death do you part thing started life expectancy was 31. Anyone can do that we have evolved why hasn't marriage. Cavemen might as well get married because she will get eaten by a sabertooth tiger in no time.

A marriage should be like an NFL contract. Women should have a salary cap, avoid arbitration, no trade clause while in the relationship, don't front load the contract, there is free agency and contract extensions.

If I were single I'd never get the flu shot. But since Abby is workign in busy season during the winter months and we have a baby onw, I get it to help protect them. Honestly, I don't think it really matters because AJ goes to daycare and Abby...well she is around other people.

joe does it really matter when uk plays? Its the sec tournament, who cares? i'd rather watch the A10 tourney...and i go to an sec school. the sec is horrible. glad to see douglas had his hate goggles on last night. you're right douglas, there's nothing impressive about going on a ten game win streak in the Big East (beating Georgetown, Pitt, nd, thumping Marquette twice)...its no SEC. This is what is so fun about the UK-UofL rivalry. The school year starts off with UK fans bragging about how tough their conference is in football (even if they're at the bottom of the pack) and how UofL couldn't play in a real conference...and then they have to eat it during basketball season because the SEC blows harder than Paris Hilton on a bender.

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 11:12 AM

Barry - I don't think the SEC is that far down this year, I do think the SEC has suffered a lot of injuries across the league and as a result tha thas hurt them.

UK plays at 9:45 tonight against Georgia who beat Ole Miss in OT last night. I'd much rather play UGA than Ole Miss, but either way we will probably lose Ramel or Joe from a hard Dave Bliss foul.

Barry on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 11:20 AM

that far down relative to what? to previous years?...the SEC usually sucks. That's my point. Its normally a four team conference (UK, UT, UF, BAMA).
relative to other conferences this year? surely you're not suggesting the SEC is comparable to the Big East, ACC, or PAC-10.

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 11:26 AM

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 11:49 AM

Posting between getting things accomplished. I have meetings scheduled for second half of the day.

This is what I will say about the SEC - it's a football conference, period. Not this past year, would UofL done anything great in the SEC, but with Petrino's last year they would have been mediocre in the SEC. They would have beat some teams and they would have lost to some teams. WHY IS THAT? I EQUATE THE BIG EAST BASKETBALL TO SEC IN FOOTBALL. I THINK THE SEC IS THE BEST FOOTBALL CONFERENCE AND I THINK THE BIG EAST IS THE BEST BASKETBALL CONFERENCE. YOU HAVE TO BRING IT EVERY SINGLE GAME AND WHEN YOU DON'T YOU GET BEAT. UK MIGHT BE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SEC FOOTBALL SCHOOLS, BUT THEY STILL HAVE ENOUGH TALENT TO BEAT BETTER SEC TEAMS WHEN THEY DONT' BRING IT.

There has only been one team to consistently stay atop the SEC in basketball. Teams will briefly rise and appear to be on the verge of being a consistent national contender, but then they will slip back into the pack. Florida found magic with a group of players and won two national titles. Prior to that they were much like the Alabama and Mississippi State squads of the last decade or so, competitive but not great.

Nolan Richardson won a national title at Arkansas in '94 and returned to the title game in '95. What have the Hogs done since?

Dale Brown's LSU team briefly flirted with national competitiveness a couple of times in his tenure. Where did they go?


Lon Krueger's Florida squad in the mid-90's went to the Final Four, then into the dumpster.

John Brady took LSU to the Final Four and then made a U-turn within a 12-month span.

Getting to the top is easier than staying on top, and only one team gets the best out of every opponent season after season and that is UK. Other teams don't do so well when they wear the bullseye.

I don't think it is a bad conference, just teams that aren't at the top seems to be a revolving door.

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 11:54 AM

Oh and UK plays at 9:45 tonight.

And Barry its not that UK fans are hating on Louisville, we are just die hard UK fans. My favorite teams are 1) UK and 2) Anybody UofL plays. Any die hard UofL fan will tell you their favorite teams are 1) UofL and 2) Anybody UK plays. If they claim to be die hard and don't give you as theif favorite teams then they aren't die hard fans for their schools. As a die hard you root for your team and against your rival every single time. If your school wins and your rival looses, then that is a great day.

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 11:54 AM

Apparently it is. I always thought it was 6 months after V-day. I didn't hear anything about it from Bob and Tom this morning. That is bull shit that I forgot.

The main thing about when UK plays is whether people will be watching the game, going out or will I have to put up with UK fans if I go out, or will drinking and watching UK be an evening activity.

Wes, I'm sorry if I pissed you off. I was trying to get at douglas and you got in the crosshairs.
I fail to see the distinction between cheering against a team and hating on them (especially when it includes denigrating that team's accomplishments).
I agree SEC awesome in foosball, bad in b-ball. Big East awesome in basketball, bad in foosball. My point was simply that I spend the fall listening to UK fans putting down UofL's accomplishments due to their conference. it comes off as though those fans are saying UK football is better than UofL football because they play in a better conference despite UofL beating them 6 of the last 8 years (however many). So come basketball season, I enjoy throwing that argument back in their faces. I don't think UofL has been better than UK in basketball for the last couple of decades (because UK usually wins), but this year I'd take UofL. Its just irritating listening to guys like douglas hating and downplaying everything UofL does. You don't have to like UofL doing well, but you do have to recognize that they are doing well...or you can keep your head in the sand.

Compromising situation, how do you celebrate steak and BJ day on a Friday during Lent? Fish and BJ day just doesn't cut it.

douglas on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:11 PM

in case nobody saw, the UK game tonight is at 9:45, and i do want to do something.

as for sec vs. big east, never said the the sec was better in bball than big east, not once, not going to say it now. i will say the sec has had i think the most teams in the final four though the last several yrs, i don't feel like looking it up. the sec is not nearly as terrible a conference as you're making it out to be. UT and vandy have been ranked all year, UT in the top 3 most of the year. it's not nearly as bad a conference this year as people thought it would be either. Florida was hot earlier this year but dropped off, and i think their two losses in a row to UK and Alabama put the nail in the coffin for their season, which brings me a wondrous amount of joy to see them lose, but i still wish they would make the tournament. even in their 'down' year, they'll still probably have six or so teams at least make the tournament, i think the last couple years they've had the most teams in the tournament too. the sec is different than most conferences, with the exception of the big east, where they're more complete from top to bottom. their top five may not always match up with other conferences' top fives, but in their entirety match up with any other conference.

i was just gloating about UL more than anything, wasn't saying anything bad about the big east, i do think UL is overrated though. they won't make the final four, and pitino's first seven yrs w/ UL will officially be no comparison to his seven at UK. quite frankly, i think i hate pitino more than UL, kinda like i hated petrino more than the football team. for example, i like kragthorpe a lot, and i wasn't rooting against UL football this year. they were much classier than under petrino. can't really say that about pitino and basketball UL. the quality of people he recruited at UK is unquestionably so far superior to what he's brought to UL it's not even funny. well actually it is kinda funny as a UK fan, but that's neither here nor there.

sorry for the late response, i was in an interview

douglas on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:12 PM

phil, what do you know about ipop.com?

Barry on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:12 PM

I have no beef with UK and i wouldn't cheer against them except I love drinking the tears of a UK fan after a loss. Can you do me a favor and bottle yours up when you lose the next game?

Phil on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:18 PM

ipop looks pretty solid. In terms of their hosting, it looks like they are in the data center across the street from us.

douglas on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:20 PM

i just interviewed there, their data center's downtown at peak 10, i think they're somewhat of a competitor of yours, but i'm not sure what you guys specialize in or if you do something different, but ipop wants to go more regional, hence why i interviewed there. it seems like a solid company, but didn't know if you might know something i don't

I'll be out at my parents house tonight...I think this is Abby's last bad week for work so I should be able to hang out here and there again.

douglas on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:25 PM

as for UK's next loss, whenever that will be, i have no grandeur illusions of UK going to the final four, we are extremely depleted. i will say i'm more proud of this team than any team in recent memory, BG has performed nothing short of a miracle, and he will be hanging banners there very soon. yeah he lost to gardner webb and san diego, but san diego won their conference tournament by beating a top 20 gonzaga team, so that loss ain't too bad anymore, and the team at the beginning of the season is a far cry from what they are now. this was supposed to be UL's year though, and pitino said as much until they started losing, when he changed his tune dramatically. they've bounced back, and won 9 in a row or something, and they've finished strong, i'll give 'em that, but they're no championship team

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:28 PM

I agree that Gillispie will bring us back to the top on a national level, the only question is when. I use to think it would take two or three years...but from what I am hearing it might be as soon as next year.

joe on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 3:18 PM

Tennessee should have lost. They just beat the Cocks by 2. Lofton hit a 3 with 11 secs. left.

Bigworm on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 3:37 PM

Yeah and apparently Tyler Smith pushed a USC player out of the way with 1.1 seconds left who would have had an easy offensive rebound and put back.

I really dont' like it when refs don't make the damn calls at the end of the game. They get paid to officiate a game, make the calls and collect the check, then live with the criticism.

joe on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 3:58 PM

Bigworm on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 6:58 AM

What really sucks is UK never played last night. They moved the SEC tourney from the Georgia Dome to some small ass stadium that holds about 9K people. Also, the remainder of the SEC tourney will start there due to the tornado that came through downtown GA yesterday.

In case you guys didn't see it, the Bama-MSU game went into OT and with 2:21 left the had to walk off the court due to sever weather damaging the dome. They played the final minutes and apparently rescheduled the UK game for today at noon. Of course, what really sucks..is if UK wins we probably have to play 7 hours later.

Bigworm on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 4:31 PM

Douglas - that all goes back to my thing about hating it when refs don't make the calls at the end of the game. But shit happens.

I didn't have a good feeling about this Georgia game. Shit, surprised it went into OT considering Bradley was 3-16 at one point from the field. The guys looked really out of sync and if we don't value the ball every possession we will be a first round exit from the NCAA tourney.

Bigworm on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 4:38 PM

here is some interesting music for you guys. it's a band of f-16 pilots called dos gringos. they have some funny stuff. maybe you shouldn't listen at work however.(unless your boss is ok with you listening to songs called "My wife's vibrator" and "Heat loves the cock"). pretty heavy on the profanity note: some songs are a bit outdated and now very inaccurate ("i dropped the bomb that killed saddam" for example). The band broke up, but i just found out about them via my brother and yes I'm posting this to get away from analyzing data for a little while.

Coach Gillispie was on the Jim Rome show, here is a paraphrase of what Gillispie told him.

Basically just told Jim Rome that he didn't appreciate him saying that UK losing to Gardner Webb was unacceptable and that UK will not accept that kind of performance and Billy G told him that we have had a tough season as far as injuries and once he gets the roster complete it will be a whole different story.

Rome also said earlier this year that he needed to handle his players better and Billy G told him that he didn't appreciate that comment as well

Rome said that he respected BCG for telling him that he disagreed and that he would always be welcome on his show.

Damn I am glad, coaches need to tell some of these guys to shut up.

Jerome on Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 8:27 AM

I'm almost positive that the NCAA tournament is a valid religious holiday in three of the major sects. The book of Numbers in the Torah describes the origins of bracketology, the Koran is the basis for the holiness of selection Sunday and Paul's letters offer up profiles of the typical mid-majors that will pull off the big upsets.

Services will be held today in several area locations such as Buffalo Wild Wings Mosque, the Temple of Wick's, and Our Lady of Perpetual Hooters.

Jay on Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 11:30 AM

Today, a sheriff's deputy came in who is responsible for the security of local schools. Apparently there are a lot of 10 year old punks. He said he wasn't going to let a kid beat his ass, so he would use force if he had to. He wanted them to let him use a taser, because, and I quote, "If they don't do what I say, it's disobedience, and clack, you ride the lightning." It made me laugh, but the civil libertarian in me died a little.

Jay on Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 11:34 AM

And for the record, I'm not saying he shouldn't be able to use a taser if the situation calls for it. He just seemed really eager to tase some kids.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 11:57 AM

Maybe he is just trying to get the little punks to change their ways before they are strapped to the chair. He wanted to give them a small simulation of what that would be like.

One of my policies for picking games: if it takes a miracle for a team to get into the tournament, don't expect a second one to get them a win once they get there. Especially when going against a religious school whose members are called "Foot soldiers of the Pope".

My other policy is to set up elaborate scenarios where Vandy meets Stanford for the battle of the nerds in the finals.

Crawford and McNeal both played great games for UK and Marquette today. I think Joe had 35 and McNeal chipped in 20+ for Marquette.

Marquette hit the boards hard and I think they had something like 15 offensive rebounds. UK's inability to keep Marquette off the offensive boards really hurt, too many 2nd chance points for them.

Also, UK's turnovers in key situations killed us.

douglas on Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 7:38 PM

shitty ending to the UK game, i'd rather just get blown out, they kept giving me fuckin' hope there at the end, only to have it ripped away from me moments later. i must've said "damn it, that's the game" at least 8 times, and every time i did, UK dropped a three or something to get back in it. well, except for the last time i said, that time sucked

For the record, it was nice to see Crawford finish with a strong game and I was cheering for them.

Douglas... you have defined what being a UC fan was this year...

"Damn it, that's the game" and then Vaughn hits 3 threes in a row, but then they still manage to lose even with the guy playing like Jordan every freakin' night. Deonta Vaughn will be an All-American his senior year, I'll throw money on that.

No one cares, but since I'm an indentured servant, I have to rant about something.

Bigworm on Friday, March 21, 2008 at 9:53 AM

Barry - Joe and Ramel both made us UK fans proud yesterday. No we didn't win but Joe and Ramel both went out with blazing guns. They carried the team when they had to and along the way they realized what it meant to play for UK. The passion and fire is back that Tubby killed his last two years, I for one am very optimistic about the future.

If Jodie comes back healthy next year, that will be a huge help, but we need to land Scotty Hopson, or another scorer that can come in next year and help replace Joe's points.

Here is a quote from Joe Crawford on Billy Gillispie.

“He’s done more for me than a lot of people in my life,” Crawford said. “He changed the outlook everyone had on me. He changed me as a person. He got me believing. He’s done so much for me and I love him for that. I don’t know how I could repay him, ever.”

Water is a terrible form of fuel. Due to the 3rd law of thermodynamics, you will not get as much energy from it as you put into it. However, they have developed a way to use sunlight to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen gas. Basically, we need to go solar and hydrogen for lasting fuel.

And so you don't think I'm talking out of my ass

http://www.smh.com.au/news/environm...4153066798.html







Barry on Monday, March 24, 2008 at 10:38 PM

Sorry for the upcoming post, couldn't leave it alone.
Douglas, Jay, and anyone else interested:
We do drill in the US. 5 million barrels a day http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/p...dc_mbblpd_a.htm
Especially along the Gulf Coast. Come down here and I’ll take you out to the some of the nearly four thousand Gulf Coast platforms (see the figure on page 2 of the text). http://www.enrg.lsu.edu/publication...forecasting.pdf
I assume you are talking about ANWR. Mean estimated amount of oil available in ANWR = 10.4 billion barrels total. http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs-0028-01/fs-0028-01.htm Estimated US consumption of petroleum (not the same as crude oil) =20 million barrels/day. 42 gallons of petrol in a barrel of petrol. 1 barrel of crude =19 gallons of petroleum. http://www.espa.net/index.mv?screen=petroleumStory

(10.4 billion barrels of crude) X (19 gallons of petrol/barrel ) / (42 gallons petrol /barrel petrol)= 4.7 billion barrels of petrol in ANWR

4.7 billion barrels / (20 million barrels/day) = 235 days

If we were solely dependent on ANWR it would last about eight months. Obviously, those advocating ANWR drilling want to use it as a supplement, not be solely dependent on it. How long the resources would last would depend on how they are rationed, but it would also need to be cost effective. So maybe ANWR can last 5 yrs (I’m just guessing here, no data), but that’s about it. There’s no way Hydrogen fuel cells will be mainstream in 5 yrs. Drilling in ANWR is a band-aid, not a cure. We still need foreign oil and Middle Eastern countries have us by the short and curlies. By drilling, the legal precedent would be set that any nature preserve could be lost if only we really, really needed the resources in it. That’s a precedent many, including myself, are uncomfortable with as populations increase and resources remain finite. More needs to be invested in alternate energy sources. And yes, I’m sure there are many oil corporations with politicians in their pockets…they’re all whores selling to the highest bidder.

douglas on Monday, March 24, 2008 at 11:00 PM

there is, nor will there be, any feasible form of alternative energy in the foreseeable future, no matter how much money is put into it. there's plenty on hand in reserves now to last quite a while, there's more in reserves now than the US has ever had, the price on it just isn't going down b/c you don't want to live off your reserves. it consumes more energy to produce an electric car than the benefits they provide, so all those celebrities and self righteous asses driving hybrids aren't saving shit. the only thing to alleviate the oil problem is to go nuclear, i.e. france and most of europe, but once again environmental wackos won't allow it for fear of another chernobyl, which won't happen b/c technology is much much better now than it was then. as an aside, most of the US oil comes from canada and mexico, so all those dumbasses saying we're in iraq b/c of oil don't know what they're talking about

Brock on Monday, March 24, 2008 at 11:19 PM

AMERICA!!!! Fuck YEAH!

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 9:02 AM

Once gas hits $6 gallon, maybe we will realistically look for alternative fuels and the towel heads can go and pound some sand.

The US Airforce is also looking at ways to turn clean burning coal into a fuel source, that could be a huge boost for the state of Kentucky as we are in the top 3 states for coal mining.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 9:05 AM

The real assholes are the Chinese. Those fuckers had to shed their caveman lifestyles and start supplying the world with goods thus driving their economy upwards. Now they consume oil and pollute the fucking environment, mind you still not more than the US but that is our damn god giving right, i.e. manifest destiny.

If you guys think things are bad now, wait till Africa starts industrializing.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 9:06 AM

Actually, I don't even care if it is alternative fuel, how about an alternative route of producing the same good, i.e. synthetic pathways.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 9:11 AM

Flex fuels is a good start, like the E85 which is 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Does that rid us of the need for foreign oil? No, but it is a start for reducing the US to consume less oil. The downside to E85 is that it is less efficient than a gallon of gasoline when you combust it in your car's engine, resulting in less miles per gallon over standard gasoline.

Other ways would be for people to actually drive the speedlimit, or for better public transportation services.

douglas on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 9:52 AM

better public transportation is well and good, and a wonderful theory, but how many people actually use it. louisville's talking about building a light rail, has been for years, but it's not a good idea. people are too independent to give up their cars, and the same people touting that idea are the same ones that drive into downtown everyday from their east end homes and won't give up their benz for a cab or a train. i think they did it in seattle, and it didn't improve congestion or the use of cars one bit.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 11:03 AM

Wait till gas is $6 a gallon, people will have to make a decision. Do I spend ($6 x 15gallon tank) $90 to fill up my car each week, totalling $360 monthly for gas alone, + parking (if that applies) or do I spend $50 monthly for a light rail pass?

The problem with the US is we are too spread out, so the school of though are cars are needed to get around. If you create a light rail system, that is on time, has security, and accessible to all major parts of the city people will use it.

Personally, I won't because I work down in the ghetto (15th and Oak). There are a whole lot of shady people out here and I won't be catching the rail system at night alone.

jen on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 11:10 AM

plus, if you have to use your car for work like I do, you don't get to choose. But, the little Saturn gets pretty good gas mileage and I spend about 15 bucks a week in gas... for now.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 11:26 AM

Jay on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 5:22 PM

The problem with E85 is that is uses up grains that would otherwise be used for food (or land for other types of grains). It actually costs a hell of a lot more to mass produce ethanol than gasoline.

douglas on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 5:47 PM

another result of the gov't trying to produce ethanol or other alternative energies, as jay stated b/c it costs a lot more, is that food prices have begun to increase just as much as gas, and is projected to continue that way, it just doesn't get press

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 9:47 PM

Yes you guys are correct, however, would you rather pay people in your own country to produce grains and keep that money here or would you rather send that money to some camel jockey?

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 9:51 AM

Yeah, I keep calling them Camel Jockey's because OPEC (The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) members are Algeria, Angola, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, and Ecuador. When you look at that list, it should be pretty apparent that over 1/2 are Middle Eastern...so they call get lumped into being called Camel Jockeys.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 10:00 AM

And that is a good point, that we only use 17% from the Middle Eastern producing countries. But the thing to remember is they make up over 1/2 of OPEC. What do you think would happen if that number dropped to 0%?

It would start an oil crisis (keep in mind that oil is used for other things than just gasoline) and our economy would cripple. So now OPEC just brought the US to its' knees by not supplying the US with oil. What do you think would happen then?

Jerome on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 4:15 PM

Sideline reporter questions vary from game relevant issues to off-the-field stuff. A lot of times, they're talking to starters who have been injured, former players who get honored in pre-game or halftime, or maybe the owner. Like these:

"Coach, what can you tell us about XXXX's injury?"
"Tell me how it's been having to sit here and watch in street clothes while your teammates are out there battling."
"What does it mean to you having your family out here in these stands today?
"How much longer until we see you out on the field again?"
"How does the latest statement from the league office affect your team?"
"Do I look fat in this blouse?"

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 5:38 PM

The trails aren't too bad right now. Joe and I went on Saturday and for the most part the trails were about the consistancy that I'd like to see, mostly dry but a little give to the ground. By no means was it the dust bowl with concrete trails we'll have in the summer, though. There were a few spots that were absolutely horrible, too, and pretty hard to ride through. Given that last point, and the fact that there have been quite a few peolpe on the trails, the trails will have all sorts of ruts once they dry out.

joe on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 5:40 PM

I've got umpiring today and tomorrow, I'll ride friday or the weekend

Jay on Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 12:15 AM

Hey, if they're too sloppy, you can always take the other route

joe on Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 11:05 AM

I hate it when I turn into a trail and have to turn around and stay on the road because it is too sloppy.

Like we were saying the last time we road, a little muddy is better then dry and dusty.

yeah, that's one of the matches, there's a triple threat w/ triple h, orton, and cena. edge and undertaker, where the 'taker puts up the undefeated record in wrestlemania. flair and shawn michaels, where flair's next loss means he gets fired by mcmahon. there's some trashy diva match that's just an excuse to show hot bitches in next to nothing wrestling

douglas on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at 10:14 PM

this works much better:
http://www.wwe.com/shows/wrestlemania/

i forgot about the ladder match, if anyone remembers last year when the midget got dropped from a 10 foot ladder, and edge just about broke his back when jeff hardy dropped like 15 or 20 feet on top of him while he was laying on a ladder, those are always classic....

douglas on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at 10:15 PM

joe on Sunday, March 30, 2008 at 6:58 PM

I almost died today in a car wreck. I was on the watterson around Brownsboro and a car in front of me randomly lost control and ran off the road and into the grassy median, spun around and came back into the lane and missed drilling my truck by a couple feet. Scared the piss out of me. I don't like going from 65 to 10 mph with an out of control car flying at you. I have no clue how that car didn't hit a single other vehicle.

or

I am surviving because I have a purpose in life that I just don't know what it is yet

or

my purpose in life is to be awesome

douglas on Sunday, March 30, 2008 at 11:03 PM

first, it's gotta suck to know god probably wants you dead. either that, or your purpose in life is to become mayor of st. matthews, and these 'random' occurrences are merely tests of your strengths, abilities, and wits

douglas on Sunday, March 30, 2008 at 11:14 PM

second, since none of you manned up and wanted to watch the greatest spectacle in sports entertainment, and i'm not gay enough to drop 40 bucks to watch wrestling by myself for three hours, the results of wrestlemania are on wwe.com. batista beat umaga, flair's career is done, orton is still champ, and i guess undertaker's match is the last one b/c they haven't posted results yet

he did, edge was undefeated at wrestlemania too, that was how they promoted the match, streak vs. streak, but 'taker won and he's champ again

Oh and if anyone is looking for an awesome car, I suggest you buy the 2009 Nissan GT-R (formerly known on as Skyline). Of course it will cost you in the low $70ks, however, it goes 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, which is faster than $200K sports cars. Not sure what the top speed is or 1/4 mile speed.

Kentucky and Louisville will open the 2008 football season on Aug. 31 at 3:30 p.m. at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
The game was originally scheduled for Aug. 30, but was moved so it could be televised by ESPN.
This will be the 11th time in the last 15 years that the UK-Louisville game has been on live national or regional television, including the last seven seasons on an ESPN affiliate. This will also be the sixth time in the last seven years that the game has been played on a Sunday.
The 2007 game won by Kentucky was the highest-rated program in the history of ESPN Classic.
Louisville favored playing on Monday, Sept. 1, but Kentucky did not want to lose two days of preparation for its second game on Sept. 6.
Tennessee and UCLA will play in that time slot on Sept. 1 on ESPN.

Hypothectical situation:

you're a chick and you've been married 3 years to a guy that drinks a lot. He makes an ass out of himself and you in front of his family while being verbally abusive to you. you confront him about his drinking. He says..."it is like marrying a stripper, you want her to quit stripping but she will always be a stripper."

What do you do?

jen on Wednesday, April 02, 2008 at 1:46 PM

don't marry a stripper. or, in her case, don't marry a guy with a big drinking problem. you can't fix people. if you don't like being married to a drunken idiot worse than you don't like being alone, then leave. if you're willing to live like a country music song for the rest of your life, then stay. On the outside, it's easy to say I'd leave. even if he could change, clearly, he doesn't want to.

Hey now, that was uncalled for, I'm not verbally abusive. Well, at least not to my wife.

Like Joe and I were talking before, that statement he made makes no sense in that context. The way he said it makes it sound like he can quit drinking, but he'll always be an alcoholic. I'm sure he meant that she can't change him, and he'll always be a drunk. Fucking retard.

If it is Paul, all Becky has to do is look at Sal that should tell you how Paul is going to be.

If Mrs. Platt, why the hell would she intervene now, he has a good few years under his belt in the alcohol dept. so I don't think he is gonna change.

Bigworm on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 9:45 AM

E5 hasn't signed with an agent, yet. He has been told that he is a clear cut first rounder by an NBA executive, and if he has strong work outs he could be a lottery pick this year.

He has a ton of upside, and if I was an NBA team with a lottery pick, you have to look at him because he is just now filling out his body and at 6'9" he is very versatile with a very good skill set.

adrian on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 9:56 AM

Jared Carter is the future of the NBA.

Everyone at work laughed at me when i said Memphis was going win the tournament. I love hearing the guy adjacent to me crying how his backet is messed up.

i sent the guys at speedgoat some photos of cheeroke park from last week and they recommended that I upgrade my frame: http://www.klindustries.com/product...Sun_Dolphin%205

I walked around on the golf course trail and it was still pretty muddy in spots yesterday. Hopefully the sun will dry it out a bit.

joe on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 10:37 AM

I'll ride today if anyone wants to. I think Chris is on call.

Phil on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 10:54 AM

Hey joe, I got hockey today but sometime this week I definitely got to get out.

You ever find out if you are playing football?

joe on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 11:14 AM

I'm off the team I guess.

Chris and I will definitely be riding some this week.

Phil on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 11:23 AM

if we are short some people I'll let our captain now you'd be up for playing and that you are looking for some revenge over your ex-team

Bigworm on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 11:53 AM

I need to get out and ride, Abby said I could ride today since she wont' be going to NJ till Wednesday. She is sick though, maybe I should wait till she goes to the immediate care center before I commit to anything.

Phil on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 11:56 AM

Marc and Big J, your presence has been requested at Karaoke by Shannon and Dominic (it's japanese for empty orchestra) on Thursday. They are probably going to hit up Cafe Mimosa and then head up to Akikos.

joe on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 1:32 PM

It sounds like rain on wed, thurs, fri. Anyone want to ride tomorrow?

jen on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 1:39 PM

So my trip to the doctor today was a total waste of time. I've been getting dizzy spells since Friday, so I go to the doc and he says I've got vertigo, which seems obvious, but then the side effects of the medicine he prescribes "may cause dizziness or drowsiness". I give up.

Probably tomorrow, chris and I will ride. I'm probably do something today. weather doesn't look optimistic the rest of the week.

adrian on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 5:50 PM

On the way back from Cincinnati, Jessie and I stopped by KFC in Carolton and bought 10 chicken littles. Those fuckers are delicious.

Also, the Bodies exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum is cool as fuck

Jay on Monday, April 07, 2008 at 6:12 PM

Adrian-Sheep went to that exhibit. He said it was pretty bad ass. Phil-for Shannon and Dominic, I might be willing to make the trip into the Ville on thursday. God knows I need to get out a hell of a lot more.

u mean you don't want to hear about blood gushing from your coworker's vagina? is she hot?

joe on Tuesday, April 08, 2008 at 11:13 AM

I'm not going to respond to that

Who is riding today? Chris said he will, he has clinic so he isn't sure when he will be done. Do we just want to say meet at Chris' at 5:30-6:00 unless we hear otherwise? I'll talk to him later.

Rock paper scissors was AWESOME. They raffled off some nice stuff (sports chair, portable cooler, snack center thingy). Kyle won the first round and should have won the second, but the woman he played cheated. She threw really slow, so it was almost like she was trying to see what he was throwing.

Bigworm on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at 2:50 PM

RPS is very competitive, they need to create a divider so people can' tcheat.

Jay on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at 4:48 PM

I'll be in town this weekend. Are we planning on doing anything for Thunder (not going, just like a cookout or something?)

So I was looking at the bats rooster...who the fuck are these guys anyway? I mean seriously, since Joey votto and Jeff Keppinger are with the Reds, they don't have much of anything left. Well, we may get to see Homer Bailey pitch every now and then, and former Yankee great Andy Phillips is back in the minors.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at 8:49 PM

It gets even better. The Bats are playing Pawtuckett (farm team for the BoSox), so that means I get to heckle some fucking Beantowners. And, they have that fatass Bartolo Colon on a DL stent (5'11", 245) along with the geriatric Mike Timlin (turned 42 last month).

joe on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at 10:17 PM

saturday we can do drunk stupid night with going out or not.

Coupla things....

1. Michelle and I will be in Louisville next weekend. I will be attending the Megadeth concert with Ty and Chip on Saturday, but I will definitely be out roaring at people afterward. If anyone wants to get together Friday, we'll try to be in town at a reasonable hour, but most likely after 10-11.

2. Anyone want to do a cabin in Gatlinburg for Memorial Weekend (May 24-26)? We've looked, there are so many cabins down there I have no idea where to begin. If there are a bunch of people, distance to Gatlinburg strip doesn't matter because we can always hunt human beings for sport in the mountains, but if its just us or a couple of other people, I'd want to be close to Gatlinburg to stumble down the street and yell at mullets and stuffed Grizzly Bears.

3. I'm getting married....


not really, but that might happen eventually.

Joanna on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 8:19 AM

Whoa....dammit, I got excited for a second, Brock.
Anyway, a Gatlinburg cabin sounds like fun, I'll see if Chris is not on call that weekend.

jen on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 8:33 AM

Phil on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 8:45 AM

We were thinking about doing a baconator challenge here at work, actually. We were just going to go with two spicy baconators. We didn't dare add the fries, but that seems like a solid addition.

Bigworm on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 10:06 AM

Wendy's fucked up my order the other day and put a baconator in my bag, so I decided to try it. It is really good, but at the same time not so much. I ate it about 2 hours after I ate my spicky chicken meal plus a small chili.

I have no doubt that you can take it down Joe.

Phil on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 10:06 AM

Looks like it should be sunny and 60 degrees by 5pm. Think the trails are any shape for riding today?

spicy chicken, chili, and a baconator? did you wash that down with a bottle of tums? Sounds painful.

Phil on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 11:27 AM

it's not the eating the food that's the challenge, it's living through the digestion of the food that will separate the men from the dead men

i think it's time for a new post. I know it is sad to say goodbye to the midnight blue Miata. But I believe his car broke down in January. We have given it a fabulous viking funeral kinda long post. Lets have a new post. And Phil, make NattySci Mobile viewer friendly.

and a Bats game does sound fun. don't know if Chris and some others are allowed back to the park after what I heard about opening day. but i'd like to go. and Tiff has never been to a baseball game I believe.

Marc, what did you hear about opening day? I don't recall doing anything that would get us banned. We did drink our fair share, and we may have been a little loud, but we didn't even heckle any players or other fans.

Jay on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 6:21 PM

Happy birthday Jen. I am going to say I am NOT in for a gatlinburg trip. Brock, you scared the crap out of me. Thursday I'll be recovering from all you can eat Moonlight bar-b-que and lots of beer. Plus I'll still be in Owensboro.

Bigworm on Wednesday, April 16, 2008 at 2:09 PM

Of course I'd look. It is analogous to seeing a horrific wreck on the other side of the express way. You are curious as to what is going on so you sneak a peak as you drive by, but you don't stop and hang out for hours.

douglas on Wednesday, April 16, 2008 at 9:54 PM

it's just like that old ron white joke, where some old bitch with saggy titties comes up and asks "wanna see em?" and every guy would proceed to take a shot and say "yup"

Bigworm on Thursday, April 17, 2008 at 8:25 AM

Exactly.

Two rumors going around, Clark coming back to Louisville (just some speculation) and Jasper is transferring from Kentucky.

joe on Thursday, April 17, 2008 at 8:53 AM

Clark and caracter are still going to classes. Caracter wants back on the team.

Bigworm on Thursday, April 17, 2008 at 9:44 AM

Caracter knows he can't make it in the pros yet, Clark is the cornerstone of the team. With the addition of Samuels to go along with TWill and the potential return of Clark that is probably a Final Four team as long as the guard play doesn't suck.

Caracter is probably more of a team cancer than anything. If Pitino boots him I'd say that is probably addition by subtraction. But then again, if Caracter gets it together, but he has shown us no reason why he would, he could be a collegiate force.

Wow, I didn't realize there was an earthqualke last night until just now. It all makes sense now. I did wake up hearing something moving around 5ish. I just assumed Cuban was having a good time upstairs.

Phil on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 8:51 AM

My cat ran under the door frame during the quake. I can only assume that if she had a school desk she would alternately crouched under it.

Jerome on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 8:56 AM

God won't kill Joe just yet. There's still the limitless comedy of him being a dirty old man.

jen on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 9:06 AM

I thought Tim was having a seizure or something when I felt the bed shaking. So I woke him up, and he said he was fine and it must be an earthquake. I thought that was just crazy talk and figured my apartment must be haunted (as a more plausible explanation), so I went back to sleep.

joe on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 9:10 AM

Mayor Jerry is having a press conference. There was no earthquake damage. The water main was already busted, the building was already old and so on and so on. What a great speaker.

my dad e-mailed me to tell me he was ok and then asked if i had any problems from the quake...can someone take a map over to my dad's house and show him how far Baton Rouge is from Illinois? Joe could you provide an update of how the baconator challenge went complete with a tally of minutes spent on the shitter for the next 24 hrs?

joe on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Adrian was a witness, I had all of the food in my mouth in the 15 minutes. The drink and chewing took 19 minutes and some change. I won the $10 consolation prize. I still feel like a winner. The food alone cost her 15 dollars.

joe on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 12:53 PM

Adrian has a picture on his phone if anyone wants to see it. I sweat off about 5 lbs during the competition.

adrian on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 12:56 PM

Jay on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 6:58 PM

I just got home from an interesting trip. When the earthquake happened, everyone at the hotel had the same thoughts about it in pretty much the same order
1) Someone was shaking the bed
2) People next door were getting it on, hard
3) Haunted room
4) Earthquake

Bigworm on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 10:18 PM

Jay are you coming in town tomorrow?

Jay on Friday, April 18, 2008 at 10:35 PM

I don't know. Some of the people I met in Owensboro talked about visiting some of the distilleries while they were in Kentucky. I told them to give me a call if they did. Depending on which distilleries they want to visit (or if they even come this way) I might swing into the 'Ville. Is something going on?

Brock on Saturday, April 19, 2008 at 12:45 AM

Dude, I'm in town. Megadeth! I guarantee you can still get tickets!

Wrecking Crew on Saturday, April 19, 2008 at 11:12 AM

Brock, what time are you all doing anything for the concert? I'm thinking it could be a good time, or at least an excuse to drink a little and hit somebody.

Brock on Saturday, April 19, 2008 at 2:16 PM

We are going to start pregaming the concert here in about an hour or so. It begins at 5:30. Just waiting on Chip to get here from Bowling Green and Ty to finish making love to his Jag.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 9:07 AM

Is it bad that I am still sore from that fucking concert? The worst part about it was that at one point I looked around, and I was the oldest, biggest guy in the pit. So instead of busting some small kid upside the head, I went to get a drink. It was a little depressing though.

douglas on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 9:37 AM

was it not a good pit or something? if it's a good pit you should be a little sore

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 9:45 AM

The pit was good for a while, until the big guys cleared out, and I was left standing next to a 4'8" dude (I think) named Skippy. I just don't feel right beating the shit out of someone who shouldn't be in a mosh pit unless they're acting like a retard. And, by that I mean, if there is a little guy acting like a douchebag who thinks he owns the pit, and he's throwing 'bows, and just has poor pit etiquitte, I have no reservations about spearing him to teach him a lesson. Otherwise, I would just as much listen to the music and let the little fuckers have their own fun.

Bigworm on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 10:13 AM

I am not really sure I know what pit etiquitte is, care to elaborate?

I am guessing no bows and knees.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 10:35 AM

Pit Ettiquette

1) if a man goes down, pick him up
2) do not wildly flail arms or legs, it's a controlled chaos

That's really about it except don't do anything stupid and don't be an ass. Fights have been known to break out, but it the pit is not entirely about trying to hurt someone. It is a means of using the music to relieve some aggression. Douglas, Jay, Joe, anything else to add?

douglas on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 10:49 AM

it's hard to explain unless you've been in one. a good pit is extremely rough and physical, but ideally no one gets hurt, at least not on purpose. you're not out to hurt other people, but you do let out aggression, and if you can't take it, then don't get in one. controlled chaos is a good term. you pick a man up when he's down, you don't kick a man when he's down, you don't go throwing punches and 'bows for no reason, however if there is a douchebag doing that, trying to start shit on purpose, he'll get taken care of very quickly, those are the only real fights that break out. and you don't grab people and involve them when they don't want to, you kinda have to do it voluntarily. it's just a weird feeling, especially when i was younger going into pits, getting the shit knocked out of me, and the guy doing it reaching down to pick me up. Like i said, hard to explain, but if you've been in them, you know exactly what i mean.

Phil on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 10:55 AM

I always figured mosh pit etiquette is similar to the unwritten rules of playing tackle football without pads.

http://deadspin.com/381980/you-know...ling-each-other

Jay on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 12:00 PM

Chris-pretty much nailed it. I would say don't mess with any women in a pit, but that goes along with not picking on much smaller people. Although, Joe, do you remember those girls at the A7X concert? None of the guys were messing with them, but they were beating the shit out of each other.

douglas on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 2:14 PM

i will say though, if there's women in the pit, they're just asking to get groped, it really is no place for a woman. but you're right, they should ideally be left alone. now the one's flashing everyone, and the ones that crowd surf, that's a different story, then it's a free for all on who can get the biggest handful

Bigworm on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 4:18 PM

LOL, you guys brought back a funny memory. Chris and I went to see Staind at Headliners back in college. I remember Chris and some other guy throughing a girl up for some crowd surfing...the only problem is nobody caught her.

So (and you have to think of this from my view point) I watched some girl approach Chris and some guy about tossing her up, and watched her defy gravity for a split second before she came crashing down. Needless to say, I laughed.

Stepkings rocked it that night.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 5:25 PM

I don't think women and children should be anywhere near a mosh pit. Honestly, I don't think they should even be on the floor at a metal/hard rock concert. It's just asking for trouble. Just ask Jay, they usually just get in the way, and are more likely to get hurt than add any benefit to the show. Of course, if it's girl rock, aka 3 Doors Down or Nickelback, they are more than welcome.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 5:38 PM

For anyone trying to make plans for Derby (not like anyone of us usually think that far ahead), Joanna and I will be having another party this year. Hopefully, it will be a little more exciting than last year, but I don't know who will show up or when. We will probably start things up whenever people want, but 3-4 pm sounds reasonable. Similar requests to most other cookouts; we'll provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and a few other main items along with mint juleps and gin bucks (in smaller quantities) as well as a few beers. Otherwise it will be BYOB, and hopefully the other regulars can bring a dish (Dino-queso, Wes and Abby-hot wings, Brock/Jay/Marc/Phil/anyone anything you want, Dom-those delicious donuts). Finally, Joanna says this is supposed to be family friendly- Wes she wants you to bring AJ. Douglas, I'm not trying to exclude you, but Joanna will likely need a baby fix.

jen on Monday, April 21, 2008 at 8:43 PM

i'll have kaelyn on derby day, if wes brings a.j., i'll bring kaelyn, she loves babies and that could keep her occupied. i'll see if any of sarah's friends want to come, but only if chris promises to throw them in trash cans. that was too funny, that alone made my derby last year

Sorry Jen, jury duty wasn't so bad when I was on it. What did suck is I had to sit on a jury case for three days and then I was selected as the alternate juror so I didn't have to deliberate the case.
