Chicken Littles

I was up in the Cincinnati to buy some hockey get which means one thing: Carrolton fucking Kentucky. And Carrolton means one of two things, Fatal Bus Crashes and Chicken Littles. And I wasn't driving no bus. For $5 even you can still get eight chicken littles and the pure joy of the lady behind the counter hating you because they know that some poor bastard is gonna have to wrap each one of those little bastards up.

Anyways, I want to register FastFoodRarities.com where you can post locations of fast food restaurants that carry rare fast food items. I can't think of a better use of the internet.

What would Jack Burton do is all I can say.

Philco, I can't think of a better use for the internet myself. After you register it you should then interface it with google maps so we can plan the best route to eat all the fast food rarities on road trips. Fucking Genius.

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 12:33 PM

you know a rarity, a white castle in st. matthews.

Bigworm on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 12:35 PM

nothing 88 mph can't take care of.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 12:50 PM

No hockey tonight so I'm heading up to flanagan's for some old school trivia action.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 2:09 PM

btw, i rented Die Hard 4 last night. They had an unrated version on there that was probably much, much better than that PG-13 shit. Swear words, blood and all that good stuff.

No comment on the computer stuff...

Brock on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:24 PM

You haven't seen horror like when my mom walked in there when everyone moved me up to Cincy and ordered 40 chicken littles for everyone.

Wes, nice use of the Big Trouble in Little China reference.

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:27 PM

Tiger is trying to lose for anybody that likes golf. Mmmm chicken littles.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:54 PM

I'm just rooting for more rounds of golf. Rocco isn't looking too hot right now for being up a stroke

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Btw, i'm watching the Sky Sports feed online right now:
http://www.justin.tv/eminem15

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:56 PM

Rocco up 1 on the 18th, rocco in the bunker, tiger in the middle of the fairway

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:57 PM

I think everyone has already handed Tiger the win here

Bigworm on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:58 PM

Brock - I was wondering if anyone would get it.

I love that movie.

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 3:58 PM

tiger has a 50 foot putt for eagle, rocco out of the bunker way inside of tiger, 25 foot putt for birdie.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:01 PM

The way Tiger has played this weekend I wouldn't be surprised to see him nail the eagle putt

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:01 PM

Someone is going to hit him in the knee with a car

douglas on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:03 PM

maybe he can putt it all the way to the edge of the cup, and then an unstable groundskeeper than can light some dynamite, which would shake the ground uncontrollably, causing the golf ball to fall in, giving tiger the eagle

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:04 PM

tiger! tiger! tiger! tiger!

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:04 PM

rocco missed the putt.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:05 PM

comment on deadspin: "My blood pressure is high enough to kill John Daly right now... "

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:06 PM

I'm getting a local guy on ESPN radio watching golf at famous dave's doing a commentary.

"They both have enough room to f up"

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:06 PM

Tiger hits it....rocco has to make this to force another hole.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:07 PM

hmmmmm, i have the British doing my commentary.

NOOONAN!

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:07 PM

sinks it.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:08 PM

And now we move onto the San Diego Putt Putt course to settle this

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:17 PM

What is the format now?

Bigworm on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:18 PM

A duel.

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:20 PM

Rocco off teh cart path and into the stands. Easy shot.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:21 PM

It really is gonna take a Volkswagen to stop Tiger...

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:23 PM

Mediate gets a drop

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:23 PM

Someone just yelled "Good drop!" as Rocco dropped the ball

I'm not sure if they were being ironic

joe on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:24 PM

and I have to go catch a bus, this is bull shit. Peace out hombres.

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:24 PM

hmmmm, the announcers just said it was a "brilliant drop, he must have been practicing that one."

I have a lot to learn about this "Golf" thing

Phil on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 4:27 PM

oh man, tiger could have used some Dynamite on that one.

joe on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 8:59 AM

Guys, Phil and I could have used some help at trivia last night. The dynamic duo of Phil and Joe as the terroristic fist jabbers did not do us proud. i was kind of disappointed.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 9:56 AM

I'd love to make it to trivia some time, just don't see it happening.

joe on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 10:12 AM

How about a Thirsty Thursday at the Bat's game one of the next 3 weeks, Wes? Anyone interested this Thursday? Next Thursday? July 3rd?

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 10:31 AM

I'm hoping to make July 3rd. Can't this thursday as Abby flies to Dallas.

Phil on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:01 AM

hey joe, instead of coming back into work and doing all the support I shut Wicks down. I am a responsible adult.

Phil on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:05 AM

and support is done! big win!

douglas on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:06 AM

i'll be a thirsty thursday this week, a bunch of folks from work are going, if anyone else is going i'll be there

joe on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:13 AM

I'm planning to go, haven't talked to Chris about it yet.

Strong work Phil. That is something to be proud of. Was it noon when support had to be done? Jerome owes you.

Any more phone calls or hang ups?

joe on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:15 AM

Douglas, you think we can be drunk by 6:30 tomorrow for our game?

Phil on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:18 AM

I'm phone call free. That was one painful ass phone call to deal with last night.

Phil on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 11:51 AM

douglas on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 12:02 PM

joe, wish i could, but i've got to pick up kaelyn after work before the game, so I won't have time

Phil on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 12:14 PM

I just bought FastFoodRarities.com

PRP's Zach Cox named Mr. Baseball.

joe on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 3:19 PM

Would have been drafted a lot higher but the retard said I won't sign for anything under a shit ton of money so nobody wanted to waste there time drafting him.

douglas on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 3:26 PM

would you expect anything less from a PRP kid who played under their arrogant ass coach for years?

joe on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 3:41 PM

Who won the state championship?

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 at 4:02 PM

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 8:34 AM

Man the Celtics just beat down the Lakers for banner # 17. The 39 point win was the largest margin of victory for any game clinching victory in the NBA Finals.

Rondo played a great game ending up with 21 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds and 6 steals. Phil Jackson stated Rondo was the difference in this game.

Also worth noting, I have never seen Kobe Bryant so confused on the baketball court. He knew he couldn't get to the rim so he settled for jump shots, the Celtic D really clamped down tonight.

douglas on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 8:41 AM

last night put to rest any comparisons between kobe and MJ. MJ never would've in his life let himself or his team get embarassed like that in the Finals, nor would he ever allow the other team to shut him down like they have been doing kobe the whole series

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 9:50 AM

It was as embarrassing of a beat down as your softball team is going to get tonight

Brent on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 9:54 AM

Have any former UofL players won an NBA championship? What are the names of all the former UK players that have won an NBA championship? I saw a site where it said 14 but did not list the names.

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 10:15 AM

tayshaun
rondo
Was Nazr on the spurs when they won any of theirs?

UL has nobody recent: Might have to go back a while to find that. I think UL only has 1 current player in the league, Garcia.

For the record, UNC is going to dominate next year.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 11:14 AM

yeah Nazr has a ring with the spurs and Walker got one with the heat.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 11:16 AM

I think the biggest embarassment for Kobe was the fact they lost a game when they had a 24 point lead. Jordan wasn't going to lose a game when he had a 2 point lead.

Also Jordan rised to the occassion, Kobe settled for jumpers. No comparison.

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 11:20 AM

there is a good Kobe rape joke somewhere in the rising to the occassion comment.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 11:22 AM

The best Kobe rape joke I heard was talking about his performance in the Finals and not being able to score on the Celts D. It was something to the effect of not saying he raped the girl, but he is certain that was the first time he scored when someone played a little D.

douglas on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 12:05 PM

joe, i can't even get amped up enough to trash talk over shitty co-ed softball. i'm still in amazement that you got a cell phone. I'm gonna' go out on a limb and guess that it wasn't your idea though

douglas on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 12:05 PM

i can officially die, i've seen joe sent a text

jen on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 12:31 PM

I'll believe it when I see it.

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 12:38 PM

I'm not amped up, I'm bored. Are we going to trash talk on the field? I think we should. Are you all any good? We are 0-4. we scored 1 run over our last 2 games and we are struggling to get 5 females there tonight.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 1:14 PM

Joe is that an electronic leash?

I know you made a comment about a horse for 4th of July. Great idea until it starts shitting everywhere.

douglas on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 1:15 PM

the thing is, through my eyes, we're atrocious, we're really not that good, but the teams we've played so far have been worse. as a team we might've hit 2 balls to the outfield last week, legitimately anyway, but we won 17-6. everybody at work is all excited about how good we are this year, and yeah we're winning games, but i just don't see it, i guess the league is just that bad

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 1:34 PM

so i am expecting a loss tonight.

Her cell phone was getting more phone calls for me then her.

I made the comment once that I was at the point that if someone drags me to the store and does all the work for me I would get one. I stood by my word.

The happiest people that I have a cell phone are Chris and Cuban so they quit getting calls from my mom wondering where I am.

Phil on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 2:25 PM

i saw the phone the other day. it's nice:

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 9:07 PM

well done

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 9:16 PM

so we can expect to see Douglas and Adrian at the game tomorrow for beer? What is everybody elses excuse?

For the record Douglas won tonight. I pulled the play of the game with a strike out without swinging once. Took 3 pitches in a row for a K. I still wouldn't swing at any of those pitches. Both called strikes were well inside and the last one hit the plate.

Douglas did one thing i didn't manage to do which was swing and miss. It was all around embarrassing I would say for both of us. Playing with bitches sucks, fuck batting opposite handed.

joe on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 9:53 PM

guys, i think i might miss the game tomorrow I think i am going to surprise laura with a bottle of wine and watch "PS I Love You." I here it is a good one.

Jay on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 10:19 PM

Oooo...Burn!

joe on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 10:32 AM

Adrian, way to not be a pussy. Chris and I will catch up with you at some point.

douglas on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 10:40 AM

joe, not sure if you were serious about p.s. i love you or not, it sounded pretty gay, but i did see it, sarah bawled, and thought i was a heartless bastard b/c I didn't cry at all. you'd think she'd realize by now that i am a heartless bastard

douglas on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 10:43 AM

and i did swing and miss quite beautifully i might add, but at least i hit the ball out of the infield on a fly a few times, overall my best hitting performance so far. i also pulled my groin, and it hurts like a bitch. i've been limping around all day, i need to look into workman's comp. i think you've officially entered old man status when you pull a groin playing coed softball

joe on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 10:50 AM

i was just trying to pick on you at short stop. It is a mean one handed swing when i decide to swing.

douglas on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 10:51 AM

especially with a ruptured tendon and a jammed finger. We've got to be the worst ringers for a coed softball team ever right now

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 11:43 AM

I have seen a new record high blood alcohol level in a living person who was actually fairly coherent...460!!! He only had 4 double deuces too. To put this in perspective, the previous record was 350, and someone who I won't mention was 250, and legally drunk is 80. This dude ended up losing his leg after he got hit by a car. Moral of the story...don't get piss ass drunk and fall into an oncoming car.

Bigworm on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 11:44 AM

Seriously, I know that isn't a great excuse, I know I should pack AJ along and put a little beer in his milk bottle or let him down a beer with dinner and all but we might get some wierd stares.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 11:44 AM

You could bring AJ to his first baseball game.

Anybody doing anything tonight? I know Douglas mentioned he would like to do something for a little bit

douglas on Friday, June 20, 2008 at 9:28 AM

how was the game, it's hard to leave captain's quarters when you have an open tab. I think the final damage was around 750-800 bucks for like 12 of us

all i'm gonna' say is, you have not lived life to the fullest until you've been to the calvert city drive-in. it is a spectacle of which there is no comparison. i've been to europe, i've been to vegas, and a few places in between, and none of them can hold a candle to a summertime trip to the calvert drive in. and oh yes, there's a website:

http://www.calvertdrivein.com/

I highly recommend the photo tour, although it does not do it enough justice. The pictures show too many people with sleeves on their shirts and not nearly the right amount of pick-ups, beer bellies, hot ass chicks (cough) and general rednecky things

Anybody ever have any problems with cell phones and the people that had the number before you? I have gotten a few calls and texts for the previous owner of the number. One call was some girl in NC looking for meredith and a text was for a "miss sassypants." This meredith chick seems interesting.

Crazy wrong number chick: No I don't. This is Tara's number. Where's Tara?
Me: Uh, not here.

Crazy wrong number chick: You sure she ain't there?

Adrian has the best crazy wrong number girl story. Adrian had a conversation with a girl who thought he was somebody else for about 5 minutes before he finally told her it wasn't him and she had the wrong number. She thought it was funny so she actually started calling him to try to talk to him.

One of the voicemails he let me listen to, it was her saying "Hey I haven't talked to you lately, just wanted to say hello. Call me back".

Crazy indeed.

Barry on Tuesday, June 24, 2008 at 12:09 AM

yeah i know it looks kinda sketchy, so to answer your query directly, i dunno. we used to scale the wrestling room walls like that in high school (though i was never very good at it), so its not that difficult to do. Timing it properly to catch a ball is a different story. if its bs, si will likely clarify this week as they seem to be pretty good at that.

Phil on Tuesday, June 24, 2008 at 12:55 AM

i'm pretty sure that catch was part of the powerade ads that they did. My favorite was the runner one: http://youtube.com/watch?v=lh5XrXMwB2U

My DVR is recording but I can't rewind live TV or watch any of my recorded shows.

I've got phone through Insight. I didn't notice any difference in service from Bell South. They use the same phone lines and everything. The only problem we had was a weird issue where people were seeing our number pop up on their caller ID. But even with that, the Insight people had to bring in Bell South to help because it was being caused by their equipment.

Bigworm on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 9:18 AM

Philco, your favorite musician committed to UK.

“I camped at Kentucky a couple of weeks ago and then I went to Vanderbilt. I received offers from both of the programs and after thinking it over I knew Kentucky was the choice for me,” Brian Adams said by phone on Wednesday night. “Coach Phillips was the first coach to come and see me and that meant a lot when it came time to make my decision.”

While Adams may share the name of an 80’s pop musician, his way of cutting like a knife is to tear up defenses by using his physical size and speed.

“I’m 6-foot-4, 211-pounds and have been timed at camps at 4.4 & 4.5 in the forty.”

Adams is a high school quarterback for South Forsyth High School in Cumming, Georgia who will see a major change this season.

“We’ve been a Wing-T offense so I’ve been more of a running quarterback and not a passer. We now have a new coach who is putting in the spread offense and while I may be the quarterback we’ve got a really good young player who may take the position allowing me to move.”

Adams said his offer was a total surprise and he’ll always remember how it happened.

“When I was at camp Coach Brooks went over to my dad and started talking with him. Coach Brooks told my dad that he was going to offer me and that made me and my dad very happy.”

Having visited during a Junior Day, Adams said Kentucky has everything he ever wanted in a college program.

“My dream has been to play in the SEC and two programs gave me that chance. Kentucky had everything I wanted as their coaches are great and the facilities are second to none. Kentucky just feels like home to me and that was very important when it came time give my commitment. I can’t wait until I’m able to put that Blue and White jersey on.”

We’ll continue to check in with Brian as he enters his senior season and makes more trips to Lexington.

joe on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 1:33 PM

I haven't missed a game with a ruptured tendon on one hand and a jammed finger on the other. What did I do...I taped it up and went on. Seriously man what are you actually going to use your groin for anyways? You have no future or career to worry about. This is the end of your career. You will never be healthy ever again and the effects will linger on forever. Nut up and play through it. It isn't going to get better.

Barry on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 1:52 PM

"Who better to do this than Detwiler?" Fresno State coach Mike Batesole asked. "That's a kid who has been playing for us for the last two months with one thumb. And I mean one thumb. The other one hangs down to his wrist when he wants it to. He's just made of heart -- it's about all he has in him."

Little did it seem to matter. Detwiler went 8-for-13 in the three-game championship with nine RBIs as he battered Georgia's supposedly crack pitching staff.

"It hurts more than you can explain when I swing," Detwiler said. "It just tears out more. It would kind of pop out every now and then, and I would just put it back in. But the ball looked big when I saw it tonight."

douglas on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 5:41 PM

okay, since i haven't been on all afternoon and i've missed all the fun at my expense, allow me to just quickly respond. First of all, Joe, if I need to tell you what I need my groin for, then you're not using yours enough. Second, it is just softball, and I could've played, but I really don't give that much of a fuck about our co-ed softball team, so it isn't worth it. If it was a game of natty sci flag football, or the college world series, or watching 'girls next door' on e!, then i would've manned up and went balls out, until i pulled those too.

Bigworm on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 5:55 PM

Nice one Douglas. And I agree, coed sports (sex withstanding) aren't really sports so no need to strain anything further. Only thing worse than coed leagues are women sports.

Brock on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 7:51 PM

The point being that the Coed softball game is the only thing you have to worry about. You aren't playing flag football, in the College World Series, or anything worth holding back for. Thats where your defense falls apart and where a life as the "way too intense softball player guy" begins.

I suggest wearing stirrups, putting stripes under you eyes, and running over a female player in your next game, much like the Douglas who proceeded you so many years ago would do.

Phil on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 8:48 PM

My mission for every softball game is to end up bleeding. There's always a reason to dive for a ball in a softball game, especially when you get a shitty break on everything like I do.

I might be up for doing something after work. I'm still in drunk timeout so nothing too late.

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 10:40 AM

still, how long has it been?

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 11:11 AM

new work food challenge, get an entire heitzmans sticky bun in your mouth at one time and eat it with no drinking. I got the entire thing in my mouth and ran out of saliva to chew and swallow and then someone made me laugh and I swallowed some of it hole. Choking ensued and I regurgitated a little in my mouth but that helped me get the rest down. In the end, i kicked its ass without losing any of it.

jen on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 11:18 AM

I heard "the Power of Love" by Huey Lewis on the radio this morning, so now I find it necessary to watch Back to the Future tonight.

Phil on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 11:23 AM

jen, that reminds me of this article that I read the other day.

Retards love Huey Lewis:
http://www.sfweekly.com/2005-08-03/...pecial-concert/

jen on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 11:52 AM

Holy crap that's funny. kinda long, but funny. "Good gosh a'mighty, retarded people love them some Huey Lewis."

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 12:33 PM

from rick bozich's blog:

World's Greatest Athlete is WHO?????
The Wall Street Journal just delivered one of those Dog Days of Summer sports polls.

This one tried to name the Top 10 athletes in the world. You can read it by clicking here.

This is the predictable list that they came up with:

10. Alex Rodriguez, baseball

9. Ronaldo, soccer

8. Jeremy Wariner, track

7. Liu Xiag, track

6. Sidney Crosby, hockey

5. Roger Federer, tennis

4. LaDainian Tomlinson, football

3. Floyd Mayweather, boxing

2. LeBron James, basketball

1. Roman Sebrle, track.


Here is what I came up with

10. Justin Upton, baseball

9, Grady Sizemore, baseball

8. Chipper Jones, baseball

7. Chase Utley, baseball

6. Josh Hamilton, baseball

5. Alex Rodriguez, baseball

4. Brandon Webb, baseball

3. Albert Pujols, baseball

2. Joe Mauer, baseball

1. Ichiro Suzuki, baseball

Don't even try to say that I'm biased. I didn't name a single White Sox player.

douglas on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 12:35 PM

joe, you own the 7th greatest athlete in the world!

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 12:37 PM

he's my bitch

Phil on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Roman Sebrle got hit in the shoulder with a javelin last year. He ripped it out himself right there on the track.

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 12:50 PM

WE are trying to come up with a top 5 list of deaths.

we have nominations so far of:
post coital stroke out or asthma attack or so on
death in a giant pit of marshmallow
and eaten by a grizzly bear

We have eaten by a grizzly bear while having sex covered in marshmallow too.

Phil on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 12:53 PM

death by snu-snu!

I hurt my arm in college sleeping on it wrong on the bus in college coming home from a road trip

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 2:01 PM

I didn't pull my groin on the bus

douglas on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 2:31 PM

there weren't any girls to help you pull your groin on the bus either

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 2:32 PM

way cooler if there was

joe on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 3:30 PM

What did you have in mind after work Phil?

Bigworm on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 3:42 PM

Abby and I started our vacation today so I could be up for something later.

Also, we just got back from the Louisville Slugger Museum, that's a cool ass place.

Phil on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 4:01 PM

looking like molly's at 5:30ish

Bigworm on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 4:06 PM

Burket - Abby and I are going to Jeff Ruby's tomorrow night, any recommendations?

douglas on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 4:37 PM

yeah, tell your name is O.J. and see if he kicks you out

I like his style

Jay on Friday, June 27, 2008 at 4:52 PM

That guy is AWESOME! To be honest, there have been a couple times when a girl has given me her number, and never returned my phone calls. Maybe she was raped as a child, has some psycological issues, or one of her parents had cancer. I don't know.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 28, 2008 at 8:50 AM

Abby and I had an awesome time out last night fellas.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 28, 2008 at 9:01 AM

Philco I am listening to the Dimitri voice messages and I concur, I like his style.

Phil on Saturday, June 28, 2008 at 9:13 AM

I think I may have told cute waitress Jenn at molly's that she intimidates me because she is an elegant lady.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 28, 2008 at 9:17 AM

Philco I think you need to try some of Randy's tactics.

i just spit up laughing at the douchebag voicemail

Wrecking Crew on Sunday, June 29, 2008 at 1:40 PM

anyone want to ride today? I'm going to cut the grass, and if the weather holds up, I plna on heading out.

phil, the deadspin roast was priceless

joe on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 8:18 AM

Friday, 8th annual BUSM.

Everybody going to be there? As of now it sounds like we will provide wings, burgers, dogs, and queso I guess. Everything else is up for grabs: deserts, booze, side dishes, chips, buns more meat and so on. Anybody bringing explosives? I plan to grab some explosives this week. Slip and slide wiffle ball will be there with the kiddie pool. Anybody want to bring cornhole boards?

Thursday, dollar beer at the bats. Nobody has to work on Friday except maybe Chris so be there.

joe on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 9:40 AM

Phil, with hockey every other monday you still doing monday trivia tonight?

Phil on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 9:54 AM

No hockey tonight so I'll be at Flanagans.

joe on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 9:59 AM

Might roll up there later.

douglas on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:25 AM

what time are the festivities beginning on friday? i'll be there for sure...

Jay on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:48 AM

I plan on being there, but I don't know what time I'll be leaving the lake that morning.

Barry on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:59 AM

times like this I really do miss living back home

douglas on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:04 PM

too bad bmac won't be around this year to inappropriately play with children in the kiddie pool

douglas on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:05 PM

you really don't know what you've got 'til it's gone, we'll never find a replacement for that one

Jay on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:05 PM

David is like 18 now, isn't he Joe? Maybe he can fill that role, Douglas.

jen on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:19 PM

http://www.alleyinsider.com/2008/6/...city-in-the-u-s-

I think you guys may have helped louisville become #1!!

joe on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:26 PM

David just finished orientation at UK and is 18. He is a college kid now. Michael, Greg's oldest, is a licensed driver. Trinity might be right behind him turning 16 or is 16. Friday could be fun. Parade is at 10:00. the festivities can start whenever. Nobody has to work saturday hopefully so we can roll long into the morning.

joe on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 1:27 PM

New food challenge:

12 cream filled long john donuts in an hour.

that is a donut every 5 minutes for an hour.

Possible?

jen on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 1:32 PM

I totally think it's possible. Possible without nausea? not likely. Hello, type II diabetes...

douglas on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 2:16 PM

yes, it is easily, hell last week i had like 8 doughnuts before i drove to calvert city, and it was those cream ones, and i could've had more

Brock on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 4:04 PM

Michelle and I are planning to drive up Thursday night, so if anyone wants to pre-game a little on July 3 (I always plan on it but usually pass out after the drive), we'll have our phones.

I'll bring the Trinity cornhole boards and taco dip for sure. Michelle might whip up something, but you'll have to ask her nicely.

Phil on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 4:50 PM

huh, apparently most of bardstown rd just lost power. we had a flicker as our building switched to a new power grid or generator power. Weird.

Jay on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 5:20 PM

Fuck Yeah! Louisville is fucking awesome!

Jerome on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 8:20 PM

Somebody go drink with Phil NOW. Buy him beer, shots ... ANYTHING! He needs it -- TRUST ME.

Jay on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 9:17 PM

Um...is everything ok, Jerome? That's sounds very foreboding...

Bigworm on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 9:51 PM

Yeah, is everything okay?

adrian on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 10:10 PM

I will be the proud owner of two itallian greyhounds next week.

Brock on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 10:22 PM

Wes, do you want to join a class action lawsuit against the online Risk guy for failing to fix his website and denying me my ridiculous addiction for months?

Bigworm on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 10:24 PM

dude that site has been fucked up for months, I don't even check it anylonger.

But yeah, i'll join in on that.

Adrian - send me that email ass.

Phil on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 10:25 PM

Work tonight...was interesting.

Bigworm on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 10:36 PM

Care to extrapolate?

Brock on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 10:53 PM

Elaborate.

If he extrapolated, he would tell us stuff beyond what actually happened, so it wouldn't be very useful if we don't know what the original story was.

Bigworm on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:13 PM

shit you are correct, i am an idiot.

Brock on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:14 PM

No, I'm a dweeb.

Jay on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:17 PM

Actually, if Phil is telling the story, he most likely will extrapolate.

Dude, the wall was like 4 feet high!
Dude, the wall was like 5 feet high!
etc.

Bigworm on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:22 PM

He's adding flair.

Brock on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:34 PM

::Extrapolation::

Dude, I'm totally going to ask out that waitress.

Brock on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:35 PM

Griff just owned the smelly Pirates.

Yay Reds!

Phil on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:43 PM

no, just an epic failure of computer hardware. Someone inexplicably used an eval copy of Windows 2008 on a mission critical piece of software, and it was up to Jerome and I to replace this entire server by midnight tonight or otherwise the server would time bomb. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, but the configuration of this server and the documentation on how to rebuild it was suspect at best, not to mention the tools Microsoft provided ended up corrupting some of the security configuration. So we ended up having to do an elaborate reconfiguration of our main piece of software live AND got to learn all about the intricacies of the Windows TCP/IP stack.

Good times.

And then I went and flirted with the new waitress at Flanagans. She looks like Parker Posey.

Bigworm on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11:57 PM

Philco - is she that the one that served us drinks inside on Friday?

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 12:07 AM

No, I've talked to that girl twice now which means she won't talk to me anymore. This girl just started. Not nearly as cute as the one from Friday

joe on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 7:53 AM

She was not the best at her job yet, she carded all of us.

For the record, trivia was a train wreck. Never good when the trivia team is trivia Laura, Hockey Laura and me.

joe on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 8:40 AM

moving cubicles sucks

jen on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 8:45 AM

This day in History: 1979 - Sony introduced the Walkman.

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 9:29 AM

She did bring the best ham & cheese ever out.

But, for the record, I think Big Jay may have called dibs on her. I think she was the younger chick with dreads from the Wicks restaurant side...

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 9:31 AM

I just got an e-mail from the guy who organizes the dodgeball league. Six people per team...

joe on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 9:55 AM

No way, that isn't her.

where is dodgeball at?

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:10 AM

I'm pretty sure, Turner confirmed that she worked at Wick's too

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:13 AM

Oh, and no info on the dodgeball league. I just got an e-mail from the "Louisville Dodgeball League Coordinator" forwarded to me trying to gauge some interest, so I thought I'd do a little gauging myself

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:16 AM

Reenactment of last night:
http://thewebsiteisdown.com/

joe on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:32 AM

I'm answering: Cuban, Douglas, Chris and I are interested but Douglas, Chris and Cuban are depending on the nights we play.

jen on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:38 AM

I know a couple of guys from Caesar's marketing dept. who play on the Louisville Dodgeball League. There's also an adult kickball league that plays over by the Zorn Watertower. Cant remember the name of the park... Turner's field maybe?

joe on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:42 AM

Turners is right there next to king fish by the water tower. We would be better at dodgeball then kickball.

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 10:44 AM

There is no reason we should not dominate in a kickball and dodgeball league. Kickball is coed, but with Cheryl, Joanna & sister and Cheryl's friends from planet Amazonia we should be fucking stacked.

Btw, because of thirsty thursday we are struggling to field a team for thursday. Right now we are trying to get me, my coworker Sabo and 8 members of the 2008 Manual Fastpitch Softball team

adrian on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 11:59 AM

my new dogs... Get them July 9th ... being shipped from Nebraska

scroll to IG385 and IG386 (Dobby and Lily)

http://www.dierkings.com/IGPuppies.html

Tiffany on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 12:36 PM

Nice looking dogs Adrian. I'd watch them closely though Italian Greyhounds tend to break their legs easily.

douglas on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 1:21 PM

those are some cool ass dogs

as for dodgeball, i'd definitely be down, i would never let a pulled groin keep me off that battlefield, but joe was right, depends on the nights, although i'm sure i could make it work most any night as long as i got a schedule and can make arrangements for kaelyn if it's wed/thur. my mom and sarah are generally always there to help out, and in desperate times, i could bring her and have a cheerleader. if it's mon/tues, then it would never be a problem

douglas on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 1:24 PM

dodgeball would in all likelihood be more fun than wiffleball was. i know joe and cuban remember those days

joe on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 1:37 PM

that is a toss up, wiffleball was kick ass.

Brent on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 2:03 PM

My friend Mindi had 3 Italian greyhounds at one time, those guys are agile as hell.

Brock on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 3:09 PM

Wait, you bought dogs on the internet?

Why does that sound weird to me. I guess you can buy wives on the internet, so why not a dog.

douglas on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 4:04 PM

wiffleball was bad ass, and yes you could throw the wiffleball at runners, but the intent wasn't to hurt other people. of course that isn't the intent in dodgeball either i guess, but i have a feeling that would become the underlying intent

jen on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 4:38 PM

wonder how you "ship" a dog?

Jay on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 4:49 PM

Phil-I never called dibs on her. I just said she was cute, but would be even cuter if she bathed regularly.

douglas on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 4:51 PM

bathing is a general turn on for me. that's why i wasn't into european chicks

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 5:04 PM

Maybe she bathed that day because it was her first day on the job.

Phil on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at 5:22 PM

I'm reading Clay Travis' book "Men: The Book." It has some important laws in it.

"Being able to outdrink someone trumps athletic ability. Athleticism is God given, boozing is a learned trait."

"When walking into a bar, always suck in gut and expand chest until you confirm you are not the fattest man in the bar. When confirmed, exhale."

"In order to eliminate time-wasting decision-making and keep the line moving, at a barbecue, when asked if you would like a "[blank] or a [blank," always answer authoritatively, "Both. And a beer."

adrian on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 7:36 AM

Brock,

The breeder that jessie and i wanted to buy from happens to be in Nebraska. The dogs are champion bloodlines and show quality. We could have bought some local but we wanted dogs with documentation of the bloodline health history and of a certain quality. The breeder has been breeding IG's for 20 years.

The sucky thing was we had to pay around 200 bucks for a flight for the little dogs.

douglas on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:12 AM

dude, where the fuck is everyone?

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:17 AM

currently I'm up in Green Bay trying out for the packers:
http://f3.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sport...m7oSo_CDmKV6qPO

joe on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:25 AM

Any requests for explosives purchases tonight?

For Friday it sounds like people should bring chips, side dishes, drinks, perhaps ice or whatever you want.

We will have burgers, dogs, wings and queso.

If anybody wants to join us on Saturday, Cuban and I are going out ot Laura's and swimming in the pond out there and probably grilling out again and eating any leftovers.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:42 AM

Anybody doing anything tonight?

jen on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 12:47 PM

not tonight, but likely tomorrow I'll be going to rack up some free drinks on my newly hired bartender friend at Bearno's in the Highlands.

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 1:37 PM

is your new bartender friend named Nick by any chance?

jen on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 1:48 PM

nope, Kevin.

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 1:50 PM

oh, you know what tomorrow night is at Baxter's Bearno? Trivia!

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 1:51 PM

So is anyone going?

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 1:52 PM

tomorrow is also thirsty thursday at the BATS game.

jen on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 1:58 PM

I didn't know Baxters Bearno's did trivia.

joe on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 2:00 PM

I know at least El Cubano and I are going to the game. I believe chris is.

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 2:07 PM

I just saw that the forecast calls for rain tomorrow, but I guess thirsty thursday goes on regardless...

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 2:34 PM

Ok, I have more details on the Dodgeball tournament. That's right, tournament. It is double elimination tournament on July 12th starting at 9am.
It will be around $100 for a team of six. You just need matching colored shirts. It's at the Crescent Hill Baptist Church, Frankfort Avenue

It will follow official dodgeball rules:
http://www.dodgeballusa.com/rules.html

I think we need to field a Natty Sci dodgeball allstar team. I am willing to go to Dick's sporting goods and purchasing a dodgeball for purposes of fielding a dodgeball combine for the 4th.

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 2:46 PM

Big Daddy Drew breaks down the 4th:
http://deadspin.com/5021147/your-fo...wgasm-breakdown

joe on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 3:09 PM

I've got wrenches at home

douglas on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 4:56 PM

i can dodge a wrench

my parents got married at crescent hill church, what a way to honor their union, by throwing balls at other dudes as hard as i can

joe on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 5:41 PM

we all know i can't dodge a parked SUV so I'll stick with throwing.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 8:14 PM

Son of a fucking bitch. I hate my job. I hate summer time. I hate dumbfucks who do stupid shit to hurt themselves. I hate bad fucking shots who try to kill people and miss, only to hit and break an arm or a leg.

Anyway, I won't be at the Bats game tomorrow, but I will be up for a rowdy 4th whenever I fucking get done at the hospital. Technically I need to have my pager on until 5 PM though.

joe on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 8:24 PM

weather forecast sucks for the weekend and tomorrow

Brock on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 9:10 PM

Do we need a tent to protect cornhole?

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:33 PM

I got a weird redirect on that link, but if you are talking about the 3k then fuck yeah I'm in.

Of course, I just finally saw the 800m final in the olympic qualifier so I am slightly pumped up. Where's my "Without Limits" dvd, damn it?!?

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:36 PM

ha, someone finally posted a link to the damn video. Found it, fuckers:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JT80GzYb4b4

But the HD version on UniversalHD is much better. For the record, the winner got a biochemistry degree so he is Natty Sci approved.

Phil on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:39 PM

hmmm the quality there sucks. Btw, you can add &fmt=18 to many videos and get a better quality video on Youtube. E.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JT80...b4b4&fmt=18

Brock on Wednesday, July 02, 2008 at 11:47 PM

I always love it when dudes dive at the end to cross the finish line. Never saw enough of that in cross country races.

Brent on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 12:04 AM

I prefer to watch real olympic athletes...kinda hard to believe their qualifying for the USA team

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLS-..._8kk&fmt=18

Brent on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 12:09 AM

An awesome volley, even the guy can't believe it at one point

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8IV...ated&fmt=18

Brock on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 2:33 AM

That WAS pretty awesome.

joe on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 7:45 AM

I didn't watch the video but is that the 800 with the 3 white oregon dudes that qualified with the dive for the olympic standard. I was watching that last night.

Marc on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 7:57 AM

Tiffany and I will be up at Flanagans for a bit tonight. It is Pint night at 7 they sell their beer of the week and the first 50 people get to keep the glasses they come in. Don't know what the beer is though. If you want a glass come well enough before 7.

Also, Batman comes out next Friday. Anyone wana go see it as a group? I know that Jay, Lynnie & Cheryl, Cuban, (possibly Adrian), and Tiff and I would like to go see it. just putting it out there sooner than last minute.

jen on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 8:37 AM

Marc- I can't go tonight. Have a board meeting at 5:00, then meeting a vendor at 6:00. Sorry, they're providing free booze. But I'm glad to see I'm not the only one planning my next drink before 8:00 am.

jen on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 8:38 AM

Batman sounds awesome. Count me in.

joe on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 10:10 AM

24 hamburgers and buns
24 hot dogs and buns
queso
4 lbs of chicken wings

Phil on Thursday, July 03, 2008 at 12:50 PM

Phil on Monday, July 07, 2008 at 3:55 PM

Any ideas on a sixth for dodgeball?

Right now we have the power house of Chris, Joe, Douglas, Cuban and myself. My buddy Matt from work has volunteered his service. Here's the rub: he doesn't have much of an arm. Here's what he brings to the table: as a nationally ranked shooter he has probably the best hand eye coordination in the South. His theory is that with a ball in his hand he should be able to stand in front and just knock the balls throw in his direction down with ease acting as almost a dodgeball shield.

The jury is still out on this idea.

douglas on Monday, July 07, 2008 at 4:11 PM

just knocking them down isn't going to do any good though will it. he has to catch them

Phil on Monday, July 07, 2008 at 5:19 PM

Ok, I might have a sixth. Bo from work is tentative if he can run it by the old lady. He plays CF and pitcher for the Louisville Colonels and has a cannon for an arm.

I just found a flaw in the system at the VA that will possibly cost the VA here possibly a 1.5 million dollars in retro payments to the veterans. Should I inform management? I see them laughing at me and then panicking or laughing at me and nothing happening. Any opinions?

douglas on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 8:36 AM

what do you mean? payments that are due to vets that they haven't received yet? i'd say so, when you run for mayor of st. matthews and then leader of the free world, you can run on a platform of taking care of our veterans. think long term here, besides, the government's not gonna fire you for that, cuz you could then go to the paper and expose them

joe on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 8:57 AM

when we pull our work load lists we fail to pull a certain part of the list and i discovered that and basically quite a few veterans submitted evidence to aid their claims that we neglected to pursue or review and the claims are sitting on average 638 days old in my population sample. if these guys are granted a 10% increase we would have to grant that over the 53 months we neglected it. Extend the 4 digit sample over all 100 digits and that is a big number.

douglas on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 10:03 AM

you can take down big government today, go for it

joe on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 10:06 AM

I ran a better report and it is 365 cases and the oldest one is 1794 days old. That one guy if he is granted an increase he is owed at a minimum like $17,000.

jen on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 10:46 AM

holy cats. poor guys. How come they don't follow up on their claim status?

joe on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 11:06 AM

we send a claim to be rated and if new evidence comes in during that period while it is being rated we create a new claim. So the veteran is notified of the decision but it doesn't factor in the newest evidence and that just gets lost. So I don't think they realize they have a claim still open. The reports we run aren't catching these either so they sit in limbo.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 12:09 PM

Joe - I think you should screw the government and when you do it sing:

From USA Today:

SWEETWATER, Texas — Get ready, America, T. Boone Pickens is coming to your living room.
The legendary Texas oilman, corporate raider, shareholder-rights crusader, philanthropist and deep-pocketed moneyman for conservative politicians and causes, wants to drive the USA's political and economic agenda.

"We're paying $700 billion a year for foreign oil. It's breaking us as a nation, and I want to elevate that question to the presidential debate, to make it the No. 1 issue of the campaign this year," Pickens says.

Today, Pickens will take the wraps off what he's calling the Pickens Plan for cutting the USA's demand for foreign oil by more than a third in less than a decade. To promote it, he is bankrolling what his aides say will be the biggest public policy ad campaign ever.

douglas on Thursday, July 10, 2008 at 9:07 AM

might have a little more credibility if he didn't currently own and is currently developing more wind farms, of course that's not mentioned until halfway through his 'plan.' Wind energy replacing a third of our oil consumption is not feasible in however many years he said, no way, no how, and natural gas has isn't anything new, people are calling for more natural gas exploration as well, have been for awhile, and it's always lumped in with more drilling for oil, but the gov't has the same restrictions on natural gas as they do oil. That whole thing is nothing more than a sales pitch.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 10, 2008 at 9:31 AM

Here are the problems as I see it.

1) Natural gas is so cheap because the demand isn't there for it. Once the demand is there, the price will raise. So you still have high prices, you just keep it locally. Keep in mind it really isn't bitching about the high cost, it is bitching about importing in at a high rate.

2) Wind Power - that's great and all, but has anybody done any research on how things will be affected when you tap into the wind as a renewable energy source? When you start harnessing the wind power things down stream will be affected such as flowering plants, jet stream system, warmer climates in Europe during parts of the year etc...

Our secretary at work locked herself out of her house this morning, and she's upset because her husbands pretty pissed about it. Apparently it is the 3rd time in the eight years they have been together. I don't know her husband, but from everything I've heard, he's kind of a douche. He's also 17 years older than she is (45 vs 28) which I find kind of creepy.

Bigworm on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 11:32 AM

Stellar work for the old guy, but I dont' think that is anything worth being pissed about.

So he proceeds to beat the shit out of this guy on the sidewalk. Apparently it is fun when you are a trained fighter and can effortlessy beat the shit out of douchebags.

joe on Thursday, July 17, 2008 at 12:28 PM

It wasn't as good as he built it up to be. It was some guy on for the herd and it was basically why should I feel good for a heroin addict and why should it be a feel good story. Guys get no attention for not being heroin addicts and you got guys coming back from cancer but heroin is getting more attention as a feel good story.

joe on Thursday, July 17, 2008 at 12:47 PM

update:

the IT guy that gets here at 6am said the car was not in the parking lot when he got here. he went up to the cops and told them his findings, the pigs, however, shrugged him off and said they believed the car had been here all night. IT guy said 'no, i'm pretty sure it wasn't here this morning, i'm the first person in the building everyday and I remember not seeing a car,' then they told him to go back in. so now the questions begs, is there some kind of cover-up, police conspiracy to hide the facts of this investigation? i'll be back...

Where is your office? I was looking for a good pig farm to dispose of the body last night but I couldn't find one so I just dumped the car. Pigs will eat straight through the bone, just dispose of the hair and teeth and you are in the clear. I hope this isn't the same one.

douglas on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 9:59 AM

well everyone is gone now, they've taken the car and the body, i'm thinking of heading over to where the car was parked and searching for clues myself. my office is at corporate campus right across from the northeast ymca, and mcalister's deli on hurstbourne pkwy. the ladies in the office are all now trying to speculate on who it might be, it's not anyone in our office, but they're trying to think of who it may be on another floor in our building. they're thinking some 80 year old woman that smoked all the time, and maybe she croaked in her car as she got to work this morning.

Phil on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 12:15 PM

I tried to hit an inside the infield home run last night. We were short a girl, and that automatic out was right behind me in the batting order. With my quick goat thinking realizing that even if I get on base the inning is over I decide to just keep running to second and take my chances. The problem is that the girl who was on second is still there. So I'm stuck between first and second, the girl is freaking out because nobody knows what the hell is going on. Well they throw the ball to the shortstop (?), who procedes to walk over and tag the girl out because she stepped off the bag so I could stand on it.

Which was unfortunate because there was only one out when I came up to bat, not two.

joe on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 12:21 PM

Phil on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 2:05 PM

two nips + bush

douglas on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 2:08 PM

so when i said they took the car of the dead person, i was wrong, it's still out there. i drove by and the seats in the front are reclined all the way back. some chicks in the office went and looked in the car, nothing much to note there, but here's the latest in the investigation:

apparently one of the cops asked a girl in my office if they knew her, and her name was something Terrell (Tyrell, Terell, whatever). He mentioned that at first glance it appeared the body had been dead overnight, or at least for longer than an hour or two, but they had reports that the car wasn't there until between 6:30 and 7:30. This conversation occurred before the coroner got there as well. Well, if the person had been dead longer than an hour or two, and as now two people in my office have confirmed that the car wasn't there at 6am when they came in, then that means someone dropped the car off w/ the body in it already dead...what's more, is when we were looking from across the parking lot at the body under the sheets, it looked like it was in the passenger seat, and they were accessing the body from the passenger seat, so we don't know if the body was actually in that seat, or in the driver's seat hunched over in the passenger seat. Creepy....

Phil on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 2:11 PM

Terell, you're death was not in vain. You made the site interesting for a day

jen on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 2:53 PM

maybe you should sell the story, douglas. It doesn't appear that any of the local news places have picked it up yet.

Phil on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:09 PM

You might compromise the investigation

Bigworm on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:14 PM

Is anybody doing anything tonight? I think Abby and I will be at Molley Malone's tonight.

douglas on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:36 PM

the investigation continues:

the latest theory is in regards to the location of the car in the parking lot. it wasn't in a prime parking spot up front or anything like that, it was kinda out in the middle on its own. and since it was so early in the morning before pretty much everyone got to work, it seems kinda strange that someone getting there so early would park so far from the building. furthermore, it appears that nobody in the other offices in our building knows who this woman is either. so the theory is, she was driving early in the morning nearby and felt bad, when she decided to pull over into the nearest parking lot while she recovered. of course she didn't, hence the dead person in the car. i've been checking the CJ website and the local news station websites sporadically thru out the day and haven't seen anything either. there weren't any news vans or anything that ever showed up while the body was still in our parking lot.

douglas on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:37 PM

i'll be at bardstown rd. tonight at 8, sarah's dragging me to some wine tasting thing at some restaurant down there for her friend liz's birthday. i'll give you a call wes

Bigworm on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Abby hasn't decided if we are going yet is the most recent word I got. Apparently, E&Y reserved the deck bar at Molley's with all their glorious wisdom. Of course since it's like a billion degrees outside and last year when they did this it was completely miserable and it was less than a billion degrees she doesn't know if she wants to go yet.

douglas on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:55 PM

i wouldn't come out drinking with me either, real cool

Bigworm on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 3:56 PM

I should still come out, but that could be deadly for somebody. And I am sure Sarah would be real impressed that I came and crashed the wine tasting event.

Please tell me it is boxed wine?

douglas on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 4:05 PM

first of all, sarah dates me. nothing you do could offend her more than putting up with me on a daily basis. i do the opposite of whatever is impressive everyday. second, it's not boxed wine, i'm too cultured for that, haha. really i'm not sure what kinda wine it is, it's some place sarah and liz went to once with some chick from their work, and liz wants to go back. you can crash the wine tasting, or not, but we'll go out after that, so if you go out, we can meet up somewhere else

Bigworm on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 4:07 PM

Huh, so I have to go to a funeral today so I dug out my black suit. This is not my blazer. It fits me, but it's from some formal wear shop. I'm pretty sure I gave some suit rental place my crappy "too big" blazer back one day.

That's what they get for not letting you recover from the night before on their suit turn in days. Jerks.

Phil on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 10:32 AM

fuck, i just stabbed myself with a needle that was used to hold in the flower that I wore in the wedding. Last time I did that was for sensenbrenner's wedding.

joe on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 10:33 AM

and he has a kid now so it is at least over a year ago. It was probably suit crappy place like gingis and Church was working there setting you up with the suit.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 10:35 AM

I think we are suppose to get rain today. I know I had some heavy rains last night so I think it is muddy on the backside.

douglas on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 10:40 AM

the backside is always muddy, and it's never too wet to ride

joe on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 10:47 AM

you can always find at least one path to ride.

douglas on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 11:26 AM

the end justifies the means my friend

Phil on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 1:15 PM

It might also be from my cousin Elizabeth's wedding. Really both of those events were a bit of a blur. Either way it fits better than my old jacket so big win for me.

joe on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 1:28 PM

UL

1) UL returning player with the most receptions?
2) UL has 5 games not on saturdays, who are they against?
3) UL plays 1 game on natural grass, against who?

2) UK has 4 conference road games, who?
3) Which returning player has the most sacks?
4) who is UKs homecoming game?
5) what is UKs win streak against Vandy?

Phil on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 2:06 PM

1) Hmmm, Chris Vaughn? He caught, well, a couple of passes last year.
2)
3) Pittsburgh still play on grass? I know their field keeps getting torn all to hell
4) WVU?

1) scott long
2) UK, Rutgers, Memphis, Kansas State, Cincy

Phil on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 3:08 PM

hey joe, I think I'm going to head up to your softball game on wednesday. What time do you play?

joe on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 3:25 PM

I think 7:30 and Douglas plays at 6:30. It is the first round of the tournament and we are meeting for drinks at Texas Roadhouse at 5. So our team is going to be drunk. Go team. We are the 11 seed out of 11 teams with an 0-9 record and Douglas' team is the 5 seed. We lost to this team 16-4 already two weeks ago so we are out for vengeance.

douglas on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 4:21 PM

yeah, we play at 6:30 on field 2 against the wellness center, or as their more appropriate name should be, the dykes. They are stacked with the most butch females you'll ever see, and quite frankly, in coed softball, the key to winning is the females. if you have good women, then you'll win, and wellness is one of the best teams b/c their women are very amazonian

Phil on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 at 4:40 PM

that was the strength of our coed team. We had two pro football players, a hockey player, a couple of lesbians and some chick that plays SS for Manual.

It didn't hurt that my buddy Bo can crush the ball too.

joe on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 10:04 AM

This place is dead, I'm out of here

Phil on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 10:27 AM

Okay so I might have just been volunteered to chaperone my boss's kid and some of his friends at Rock Mayhem. His oldest son (15 or 16 years old) wants to go to this rock concert in Indy and his mom was going to take him. Not sure if it would be a good place for his mom to go to.

http://www.metalunderground.com/new...fm?newsid=34030

joe on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 10:30 AM

looks like an awesome concert to me

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 10:58 AM

Yeah, if I can go to the concert instead of working count me in.

douglas on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 11:02 AM

yeah, probably not appropriate for mom, unless she enjoys moshing and getting felt up by random dudes

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 11:08 AM

Yeah, and I am thinking not.

Here is a good way to create an awkward situation. Last week my boss and his father (company owner) are all out at lunch. My boss gets out to the car first and is talking to his wife on the phone (same lady that doesn't like being felt up by random dudes) and as we get in the car his wife starts talking to me and asks my boss if he mentioned that she had a dream of me the other day, to which there was nothing but silence for the next couple seconds. AWKWARD.

douglas on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 11:28 AM

you should've said something like 'oh, were you wearing your pink thong i like' or something random like that

joe on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 1:12 PM

So our plan of drinking before our game tonight just got more interesting. There is talk of all of management showing up to the game to watch. So this could be priceless.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 1:36 PM

Joe - where do you play at and what time? AJ and I might be looking for something to do later.

joe on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 1:54 PM

JCC at 7:30. Douglas is at 6:30. I'm calling management's bluff.

douglas on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 2:02 PM

so how much leway(?) will mgmt. give you if you're the ringer on the softball team. will they fire you the first time you do/say something inappropriate while drinking, or will they at least wait until after the game to do it?

douglas on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 2:04 PM

which field do you play on? i'm on 2, i can't wait to ravage the dykes....

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 2:10 PM

I'm in for that concert too, but I don't know if your boss would appreciate what we may teach his kids.

joe on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 2:19 PM

Field 2. I know a few of us are going to Texas Roadhouse at 5:30 and drink till gametime. The only problem is our team name is our place of employment so is it technically a work function? They didn't put up the money to sponsor us and we paid our own way so I don't think I can be fired.

Brock on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 3:07 PM

Chris,

Apparently killing people in a mosh pit and wearing their skin is frowned upon by parents, so I wouldn't recommend doing that in the presence of young boys.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 4:07 PM

My boss just told me he is looking to get pavillion seats. I am interested if they will have the bleaches still set up or not. Concert starts at 2:00.

Chris are you off on the 13th?

Jay on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 5:02 PM

Douglas- the LD50 of alcohol is .4, which means at a .4, half of the population would die. So there is still room on the other side of it. And if someone is an alcoholic and drinks a lot, they can go much higher.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 8:21 PM

Are you saying that concert starts at 2pm on a weekday? That is fucking retarded. The Rock Mayhem in Noblesville, IN is 8/2.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 8:21 PM

Maybe not. The link wes posted says 8/2, but tickemaster says 8/13.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 at 10:59 PM

yeah it is fucking retarded, and I am going with Ticketmaster.

Brock on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 1:28 AM

If anyone is interested, I could use a hand moving some furniture out of my cesspool of an apartment on Saturday. Nashville is having the Beer Brewer's Festival downtown, so I plan to head down to that area in the afternoon. I'm trying to get my brother to come down. Since it will just be a few pieces of furniture, it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours on Saturday morning to get my stuff moved and then enjoy the town the rest of the day.

I know its late notice and since I posted it at 1AM, it'll get buried under 15 posts about riding the bus and corpses in the parking lot, but I figured I would throw it out there.

Michelle's bar is nearing its rebirth as we have been doing some upgrades to it since it was in Cincy and hopefully will have a Nashville Stock the Bar party soon; but since we've lived here a year and haven't had anyone down, this sounded like a good opportunity.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 8:25 AM

Brock I would help you but I have big plans for working on my basement this weekend. Pretty much every weekend and the occasional weekday from now till it's finished I am booked.

joe on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 8:32 AM

Will any of us ever be allowed to see your basement?

douglas on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 9:48 AM

you know the best way to win a softball game against a bunch of dykes? hope they don't show up and stroll into the final four

douglas on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 9:51 AM

i think i'm going to make up an imaginary project for the next several years as an excuse to not come out anymore, too. from now on, my weekends are booked until i finish building the game room / massage parlor wing onto my condo

douglas on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 10:36 AM

1) i have a cousin that goes to SIUE who does drugs, wonder if she knows those cookie scoundrels

2) i can add the stripper pole, but that's going to hole me up in my project for another month. on a side note, i went to homearama this year, and there was a house w/ a disco lounge in the basement and a "dancing" pole, i found it humorous

joe on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 10:59 AM

did it have a champagne room or chocolate parlor?

douglas on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 12:07 PM

who wants a champagne room? you can't have sex in there

joe on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 2:46 PM

Chris and I are planning to.

joe on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 3:41 PM

They move me away from the windows at work and what do they do, they bring in a wrecking ball and start tearing down a building. Do you realize how awesome it would be to watch a wrecking ball 8 hours a day? This is bull shit that they moved me.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 4:47 PM

Yeah this basement has taken forever to get done. The good thing is I am off tomorrow and driving to Cinci to get the ceiling tile. I am thinking it will be finished in about 8 weeks or so, and yes, eventually people will be able to come over and check out the basement.

I am putting the over under at 2 work related phone calls tomorrow, any takers?

jen on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 4:58 PM

I know this is a weird question, but you guys are likely the experts on this topic... do you guys know of any softball fields in the city (besides Turner's field) that you can bring alcohol or purchase alcohol at that could host a Sunday league next season?

Phil on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 6:02 PM

They haven't had a problem with me drinking at seneca park as long as you don't drink on the bench. I also played a game at St. Bernardus that had a concession stand that sold beer.

Brock on Thursday, July 24, 2008 at 7:46 PM

I recall, if its still there, a couple of fields down on Mellwood and Frankfort Ave that had a bar attached to them. That may be closed now.

douglas on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 8:10 AM

so, i don't know what it is with fridays and dead bodies these days. come into work via the watterson, which was horrendously backed up b/c of a motorcycle accident:

http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...NEWS01/80725006

the article says there may be a fatality but it hasn't been confirmed. Let me be the first to confirm, that dude was dead, i saw his foot sticking out from under the sheet, the ambulance hadn't gotten there yet. his body was nowhere near where his bike was

joe on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 8:22 AM

Yep, he was dead when I drove over the watterson around 7:30 and he was still hanging out in the middle of teh road next to his motorcycle. Breckinridge traffic was a bitch.

joe on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 8:28 AM

an email sent by management:

"The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) guidance categorizes VBA employees’ duties as medium risk (exposure to pandemic influenza) based upon close contact (within 6 feet) with coworkers and the general public. OSHA guidance for providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to employees in the medium risk category is the use of surgical masks (procedure masks). In 2006, VBA issued PPE kits containing surgical masks and other items to all employees.

Due to VBA’s increased number of FTE , loss of issued kits due to personnel turnover, and shelf life of some products in the original issue, new OSHA recommendations require an inventory of complete boxes of procedure masks be conducted.

Tentative Issue and Storage Plan
VBA will stockpile 1 box of masks per employee (VBA employees, contractors, VSOs).
Masks will be stored until the Under Secretary for Benefits authorizes issuance.

Requested Action: Collect, inventory and store complete boxes of surgical (procedure) masks. (All other items included in the original kits may be issued to employees.)"

It has been renamed in the office as the "Burket Plague" and it is step 1 in world domination.

douglas on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 8:39 AM

does the burket plague result in well hidden and itchy rashes?

Marc on Monday, July 28, 2008 at 8:53 AM

So last night Tiff and I headed to Baxter Avenue theaters. I pickup a movie sheet that gives you a synopsis of the movies there to see what some movie I hadn't heard of was about. They are playing Batman to, so I read the blurb about it. "A sequel to the blockbuster hit Batman Begins.... yada yada yada. Also stars Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger (as the Joker). . . Yada yada yada. "Also costars the late Michael Caine..." yada yada yada.

I read that and was like, "What the hell?!" I start looking around and at Tiffany and saying out loud. "Michael Caine died?! Michael Caine died?! How come nobody told me?! How did this happen?! How was I not informed?!" The blurb didn't mention Heath's death, unlike everything else written about the movie. I re-read the blurb and see that it says at the end of it. "Also costars the late Michael Caine, the late Gary Oldman, and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman." I do not think to ask myself , "Did Gary Oldman just die to?! Who will replace him as Sirius Black?!" (Yes, I'm a fag.) Instead I make the realization that whoever wrote the little movie blurps is retarded and doesn't know what the hell it means to refer to somewhat as "the late," such as "the late Marcus Brody."

joe on Monday, July 28, 2008 at 9:11 AM

Phil, is this a hockey or trivia night?

Jerome on Monday, July 28, 2008 at 9:36 AM

They need to keep a video camera on Lorenzen at training camp. I can hear him now when Peyton Manning comes back from injury.

It isn't a hockey night. I am down for trivia.

Marc on Monday, July 28, 2008 at 10:44 AM

sweet. also. I am a mere 3 beers away from finishing the Centurion club. with the legendary Skull Splitter as my final beer. Now I just have to think of something witty or fitting to put on my mug. Maybe a Marcus Brody quote or summation of the character of Marcus Brody. You guys wanna help with other ideas?

Phil on Monday, July 28, 2008 at 10:54 AM

Yeah, I'll be up for trivia.

The quote for the mug is a sacred beast. Don't do it shit faced drunk at 3am and just decide to rip of the onion like I did.

That being said "Is there anyone here who speaks English? Or maybe even ancient Greek?" would make me laugh, but I fear is too long. And nerdy.
