New Years Revolution

It's that time of the year again where I decide I will no longer be fat, won't take so many shots of jager that CSI:Baxter Ave is required to help piece together the evening and my dignity, I stop wearing sweatpants to bars, I clean the shithole that is my condo, and that I stop eating the oh so delicious Southern Chicken Sandwich from McDonald's for ever damn meal. Things are gonna change, I can feel it.

PS - Joe, I'm gonna get you the cash money for New Years as soon as I get my debit card back from the bars. I know you're still in hole so I can get you a check if need the money soon really quickly.

by the way, adrian's girlfriend trying to make a break for it was my highlight of the night. i swear that girl made it to the end of the street in 15 seconds. if we had a drunken Olympics that night I'd put her up there as a preliminary favorite for "100m time while crying".

Good times.

joe on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 1:52 PM

no rush on the money as long as I know I am going to get it. Once I get it all i will get Chris his share.

joe on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 1:54 PM

I'm in on the New Years resolution

joe on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 1:57 PM

I can't put down the fritos and taco dip

joe on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 2:00 PM

The last time i saw a person run down this street that fast was a naked Poopy Martinez trying to get out of taking a bath.

Phil on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 2:53 PM

right on, joe.

I know you guys dropped some serious change on that and I didn't want Laura showing up at my condo looking to punch me in the face until I pay up.

Jerome on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 3:05 PM

Coddamn you, Phil

douglas on Friday, January 02, 2009 at 3:27 PM

hold the fuck on...why was adrian's girl running away? what did you all do? i thought only joe made girls cry on new year's...

There will also be a wad of cash coming from me as well. I had it in my pocket all night, but my hands were always full with bourbon, jager, or beer.

I think the flip-cup battles were a highlight of the evening.

Damn car just cost me $350.

I had a blast on Wednesday night. Cuban is out and the place is almostput back together.

Brock on Saturday, January 03, 2009 at 6:50 PM

Anyone out and about this evening?

joe on Saturday, January 03, 2009 at 7:15 PM

nope. I am drinking jello shots contemplating life over football. don't see myself venturing out, spent too much money on a couch and fixing my truck.

douglas on Sunday, January 04, 2009 at 12:24 PM

you got a new couch? what happened to your truck?

Bigworm on Sunday, January 04, 2009 at 1:42 PM

Joe - why are you contemplating life for? Did Laura give you an ultimatum like Michelle gave Brock?

All I know is Brock never paid attention to her ultimatums and it never hurt him.

Phil on Sunday, January 04, 2009 at 3:03 PM

i *think* i have killed it. jesus those things are retarded. i swear at this point I could be an adt security installer.

joe on Sunday, January 04, 2009 at 7:04 PM

no ultimatums. Just a hectic, busy day. rotors on my truck were shot and a link on the front of my truck broke so it was bouncing around on every bump rubbing stuff and burning things. Thing is the right one broke 3 months ago and I had my brakes repaired then too. They failed to replace the rotors then and the Ford Ranger is known for those things to break.

Bigworm on Sunday, January 04, 2009 at 8:01 PM

yeah that sucks, I hate when I have to repair something on my car. Not that I have repaired much, as it has been a good solid dependable car. But I have gone through a couple batteries and replaced my catalytic converter unit. Then again, I did buy my car new in 2003 and it has 156K miles on it.

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 8:28 AM

I'm ready to retire

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 8:29 AM

getting back to work after the holidays is always hard

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 8:31 AM

so it looks like i might be moving back to civilization sooner than expected. sarah and i are putting an offer on a house not in smokolona this week

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 8:42 AM

Where at?

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 8:42 AM

Don't say Indiana.

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 8:50 AM

don't insult me like that, okolona's about as bad as I'd get. It's in Bradford Grove, a neighborbood off Hunsinger Lane, so back in the east end. 4 BR, 3 BA, big unfinished basement, so I could possibly do my best Wes impersonation and work for years on finishing it w/o anyone ever actually seeing it

I've been in a couple of houses back there. Nice.

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:16 AM

If you, cuban and I all live within a couple miles of each other, where do we do haircuts?

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:20 AM

who cares, that's a good problem to have, rather than me having to cart my ass for 20-25 minutes every time i leave the house. speaking of which, i'm heading over to mark's after work to get my cut, if you need one as well

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:22 AM

the biggest issue i'm going to face though is getting my condo sold soon, which is a big if in this market

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:30 AM

very true

Phil on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:44 AM

i'm gonna try and get my condo all cleaned up, and put it up on the market.

i'm hoping to sell it by october.

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:52 AM

we make me feel old

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 9:57 AM

we are old...

the good thing about my condo is it's only 2 1/2 yrs. old and i don't really need to do anything do it, just some touch paint and get rid of some crap

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 10:08 AM

I resent that

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 10:12 AM

haha, well i resent that you own your house free and clear, so we're even. plus we can draw the st. matthews vs. okolona comparison, so you get a slight edge on that one as well

Phil on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 10:31 AM

this is the house I'd buy if I needed 4 bedroom and 3 baths:
http://www.realtor.com/search/listi...df9a&lsn=10

If only they had a smaller 3 bedroom / 2 bath version floating around. Jerks.

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 10:46 AM

I don't wanna be old

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:02 AM

the I resent comment was about we are old nothing about your condo.

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:09 AM

i figured that out after i read it again.

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:18 AM

but you are getting old, you have a live-in girlfriend, it's all downhill from here buddy

Bigworm on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:23 AM

Douglas - looks like a very nice house, I bet when you walked into the master bedroom you were thinking "but it's a manly pink".

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:24 AM

Its not pink it is salmon

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:36 AM

no, i was thinking this gets painted the fuck over before i move in. even sarah was appalled

Bigworm on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 11:38 AM

I tell you what, I'll sell you my house and you don't have to worry about finishing the basement, as it is already done. I'll buy a new one so I can start finishing that one and take another three years to complete.

The bastards I am mentoring won't leave me the fuck alone and when they do leave me alone some bastard thinks their computer is broken or a printer is broken and I have to go mess with that. I just want to sit at my desk and put my headphones on and not be distracted for a few minutes. I'm not even that important, go bother somebody that gives a shit or has authority. I am delegated by higher ups to help my equals wasting my time so they can surpass me in the future. Seems retarded. They will rue the day I get a small bit of power.

lsu's new db coach...ron cooper. yes, that ron cooper.

joe on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 3:40 PM

I wanted him to take Kragthorpes job

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 3:56 PM

not sure how much damage he can do as a DB coach, so LSU should be alright

Barry on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 4:19 PM

well, he's actually been a pretty good db coach. he's been at south carolina for the last three or four years. but i still remember 0-10, so it scares me.

Bigworm on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 4:42 PM

Coach Cooper is a pretty good DBs coach, and Barry is correct he coached the Cocks the past few years under Spurrier which isn't an easy thing to do.

Of course, I still remember a post game interview that happened last year or two years ago and a reporter asked Spurrier about a certain defensive formation on the last play and he sent another assitant after Ron Cooper to get infront of the media and take a public questioning by Mr. Visor.

douglas on Monday, January 05, 2009 at 4:45 PM

yeah, i remember that, cooper that just gotten out of the shower and his hair was still wet or something, no wonder he jumped ship and got the fuck away from the ol' ball coach

joe on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 9:03 AM

This seems cool but for some reason I don't think I would make a good FBI agent:

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 10:12 AM

I'd love to work for the FBI. Abby doesn't like the idea of me wanting to be the first person through the door on a raid though. Probably the life for a single man without kids.

joe on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 10:43 AM

Phil could pull off the FBI computer nerd. Put his stalking and ADT hacking skills to good use.

douglas on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 10:51 AM

if he's already spying on chicks, he might as well get paid to do it

joe on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 10:53 AM

Might be a better closer if he can say I am an FBI agent.

Phil on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 11:55 AM

Funny, I've actually checked on working at the FBI when I was bored. I easily qualify for being a special agent. Not sure if my grades in college are up to snuff.

Still, it's a shame that the FBI computer nerd department is called the "Cyber Division." That certainly does not pick up chicks.

douglas on Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 12:02 PM

you don't say the department, just FBI. if they ask what division, you say "I'm sorry, that's classified" and just watch their panties start dripping

Btw, I have many times extolled the benefits of getting a sea world membership because you can get free beer there. Apparently they've decided that free beer has a limited appeal and took away that loop hole. It really was a Douglas dream come true. Everyday you could go get some free beer and hang out with penguins for like $70 bucks a year.

She is a Cincinnati Reds fan and Dallas Cowboys fan. Married to my old supervisor and has a 3 year old daughter Sara who likes to be called Sasha.

"UT....Rumor I got from a buddy in Knoxville is that in John Chavous's contract with UT- it states if he leaves UT, UT will pay the difference in his new contract for 2 years. Example: UT paid Chavous 750K a year and LSU gets him for 700K, UT will have to pay him 50k for the next 2 years

His annual salary with LSU is... $1 so UT has to pay him $749,999 for the next two years...."

Has anyone ever done a job interview where you are required to do a timed writing sample? All I know is that mine was awesome and that someone referred to it as an episode of Touched by an Angel.

Jerome on Wednesday, January 07, 2009 at 3:11 PM

Was "Touched By An Angel" a porno by any chance? I'm just thinking you could make some good money writing erotic fiction.

douglas on Wednesday, January 07, 2009 at 3:16 PM

i was touched by a sheep named Angel once

Phil on Wednesday, January 07, 2009 at 3:20 PM

ok, so i busted out the fry daddy last night and tried to make homemade spicy chicken tenders using the wendy's secret recipe. Second batch was a little better, but still not a triumph. But throw in a couple of beers and you've got yourself a solid snack for sitting back and watching some Biggest Loser.

I never watched the show, but from what I can tell the show is about 60% of people standing on scales, 25% footage of the participants crying about being fat, 10% product placement and 5% of them working out and eating healthy.

That being said I think there are a couple of girls in there that could look cute if they lost a shit ton of weight (i.e. 200lbs). As brent says, you can only get 3 of 4 - looks, personality, smarts and body. If you can get everything but the body, but you know she's trying out for the biggest loser, would it be worth fucking a manatee for a few months for the potential to get connect four? Or would her personality suddenly go once she's no longer a fatty fat fat kid?

joe on Wednesday, January 07, 2009 at 3:26 PM

Won't keep the wieght off and will go back to being a fatty fat fat kid

Phil on Wednesday, January 07, 2009 at 3:34 PM

hmmm, good point. never trust fat people.

that's awesome, i remember a meeting when i was at new equity where mgmt had tried to pump everyone up for some big meeting when they were restructuring the company, and they were going to announce all the changes at this meeting at some fancy hotel. we walk into the room and they're playing jock jams too, and the hotel had drinks and appetizers and shit, and our shitty HR manager got up, who no one liked, and tried to get us pumped up and shit, and our VP then got up to announce a couple promotions, blah blah, and then our new "improved" commission structure. It was funny b/c after they described, everyone was doing the math in their head and we could clearly see it was shittier, so now no one was happy, and they kept trying to get us peppy. After the VP announced the changes and we were all pissed, the HR mgr. got back up to speak and asked why no one was more excited. The absolute awkward silence in the room was one of the funniest things I'd seen in my life

Okay Lee Corso is officially off the rocker. I know he is just bringing up controversial shit because that is his job, but to say that USC should be the national champion because it was more impressive that they held Penn State to 24 points in the Rose Bowl.

Granted the Florida-OU game was more of a defensive contest, which I love by the way, but how is that more impressive than Florida holding the most prolific scoring offense in the history of college football to 14 points?

Now factor in that Iowa held Penn State to 23 points, OSU held them to 13.....so it that not more impressive?

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 8:43 AM

Go UTES!

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 8:44 AM

Is it bad that lee corso can make lou holtz seem reasonable sometimes?

Bigworm on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 8:49 AM

It's kind of fun watching these goes go off in the deep end.

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 8:52 AM

fire Joe Pa and put him on ESPN Gameday.

Bigworm on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 8:54 AM

That would be a sight to see.

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 9:03 AM

lee corso, joe pa, lou holtz, bobby bowden and kirk herbstreit as the GameDay creew.

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 9:42 AM

I decided I am never allowed to have nice things. I bought a new couch over the weekend because mine finally reached the point where it was more painful then comfortable and I would actually call it broken. So I went and picked it up yesterday got it home and took the plastic off and the protective cardboard off the corners and it was ripped already underneath one of the corners. so I have to take it back on Tuesday and pick up a new new couch. They won't pick it up and exchange it free I have to take it. Fucking douchebags.

Bigworm on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 10:21 AM

Yeah that fucking sucks, I'd probably just take it back and buy one somewhere else. Fuck them in their stupid asses for being incompetent.

Of course if Joe Pa did join Game Day, he would have to do a couple games from the Game Day Truck because his leg injury would prevent him from walking to the Game Day stage. Instant classic if you ask me.

douglas on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 10:54 AM

where did you get the couch from? i'm still kinda amazed you're buying new furniture, so many changes from joe, a girlfriend, a cell phone, a facebook page, dogs, and now new furniture. Only a matter of time before you follow in the rest of our footsteps and complete the final transition to total gayness, the ring...you're our last best hope

douglas on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 10:55 AM

oh yeah, go SEC!

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 11:16 AM

well said. It is a cheap ass thing from Value City. It was actually all my idea. I was unable to watch tv comfortably and that is a priority. When I would be sore from watching too much tv I knew there was a problem. I didn't know of too much tv until this.

douglas on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 11:41 AM

There is no too much TV, you just needed a new tool in your toolbox to better facilitate your lifestyle. In this case, the couch is your tool

Phil on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 11:43 AM

i was friends with a girl whose dad was a carpenter. for what it's worth, he said value city generally at least uses good quality materials and the such

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 12:27 PM

I have not thrown out the couch either. Storing it in the garage with my other 10.

joe on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 2:42 PM

This woman at work found out I have a degree in math so she is convinced I am a genius. She now refers to me as professor. I have convinced other people in the office who have heard her refer to me as that that I am in my spare time a streetballer and am like the white boy on the And1 videos known as the professor. How long do you think I can keep this up?

Phil on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 2:53 PM

until they see you play basketball

douglas on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 3:36 PM

the professor's just light skinned, he's not really white

Bigworm on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 4:36 PM

I think you should keep it up for as long as possible. You can always deny playing basketball with your peeps, you know due to And1 contractual obligations.

Brent on Friday, January 09, 2009 at 5:07 PM

I much rather be AO, then everybody would be like, "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa YOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" When you walk to the copier

Brock on Saturday, January 10, 2009 at 5:49 PM

Nashville is rockin' with a playoff game. Almost as much as Cincy when the Bengals made the playoffs in 2005. Definitely an advantage of living in pro sports towns.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 8:12 AM

Adrian, any new word on the house? Douglas, I got a notification about a condo for sale from Sara. Did you put the offer in on the house? Brock, I guess you are becoming well adjusted to dealing with failure.

douglas on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 8:19 AM

the first offer got rejected, the seller is relocating, and so we're having to deal with a relocation company, which is a major pain in the ass. second offer's going out today or tomorrow. i've spent literally every minute of the last three days clearing and cleaning out my condo to get it ready to go on the market

douglas on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 8:24 AM

yeah, sarah sent something out on facebook, basically just trying to do anything we can to get it sold quickly

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 10:45 AM

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 10:50 AM

Tebow is coming back too.

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:10 AM

So is Jeremy Jarmon and word on the street be that Trevard Lindley might be coming back as well.

If UK gets all three of those guys back, especially Lindley, that is like snagging a 5-star at the last minute.

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:12 AM

So how low hass the Louisville football program sank? I mean seriously, the guy you just hired to replace English just quit, do you think working at a place for a week will hurt him in future coaching searches?

Jerome on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:15 AM

Tony Dungy's retiring. That's huge.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:16 AM

I hope the Steelers lose

douglas on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:17 AM

i like the playoffs for the rest of this year, there aren't any teams that I really don't like, so I can just enjoy the games knowing that a manning can't win this year

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:21 AM

Too many of my co-workers are douchebags and they all like the Steelers. I allow one of them to slide because he is from Pittsburgh, but he is still a douchebag giving steelers fans a bad rap.

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:21 AM

How bad did the Titans fucking blow it out their ass?

Seriously, they had two turnovers in the redzone against Baltimore and they weren't by Collins. One Lendale White fumble and another by Algae Crumpler.

Phil on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:22 AM

The AFC and NFC championship games are always better than the superbowl, just like the final four in basketball.

I'm rooting for a Eagles vs Ravens superbowl. If the Steelers get to the game then jerome will be insufferable for like a month. And if the Cardinals get in then I'll have to put up with Kurt fucking Warner biographies and shit. And please god don't let Pat Tillman get brought into the fold too.

douglas on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:25 AM

if i had to pick i'd probably go eagles-ravens too, just b/c mcnabb needs one, and i like the ravens b/c the only way they win is smash mouth football, it's not pretty at all, and I like that

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:26 AM

I bet there is a little fan with the Cardinals that flaps his arms and Pat Tillman appears to help out his fellow birds.

I understand you don't want to hear about Warner, but I actually like that guy...hard for me not to root for him. So quit being a hater and let a team of has beens live the dream.

Insufferable?!?!? Phil, you work in an office with cap-wearing-gum-chewing-goatee-growing Cat fans, fair weather Cards fans and I'm "insufferable"?

Here's the test for a Steelers fan douche, Joe ... if you say the names Tim Worley, Cliff Stoudt or Gabe Rivera and the person cringes, they didn't just jump on the bandwagon. Too many people didn't give a shit in those days and wouldn't acknowledge being Steeler fans then even if they were from Pittsburgh. Also if he hates Joey Porter now because he wears a different shirt, then by all means break out the Summer's Eve.

Since I want it to happen, an all Pennsylvania Super Bowl will probably tank and I'll be stuck eating nachos and watching Ken Whisenhunt and Andy Reid try to out mustache each other.

Jerome on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:40 AM

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 11:41 AM

Jay - Did you ever beat the Force Unleashed game?

I beat it as the Jedi (where you beat the emperor) and then as the Sith (where you turn on Vader). Pretty fun game, love the game play.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:34 PM

I just found out they are having a meeting at 1:30 for all the candidates for the promotion in my office. There are 5 of us that interviewed and we don't know how many they are taking, except at least 1. If I would have known they were doing this today I wouldn't have gone to white castle for lunch. My stomach is doing a number. They said the meeting will take under 15 minutes. We think they are passing out envelopes saying whether you got the position or not. Could be awesome monday or suck. Wish me luck. Watch it be they aren't announcing the postion at all, just a simple meeting.

Brent on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:42 PM

What if they bring you all in and say "The winner is...right after this commercial break."

Jerome on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:42 PM

Good luck, Joe! I hope you get it. No matter the outcome of the meeting, I really think dry heaving at the conference table would be seen by all as an excellent show of strength and character.

Jerome on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:43 PM

Good call, Brent. Maybe there will be 5 hot chicks with suitcases instead of envelopes too.

douglas on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:44 PM

you know what would be funny was if they were getting ready to hand you the envelope saying you got the job at the same time your white castle started telling you to get to a bathroom pronto, and right then switched the envelopes

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:44 PM

They will say we are all equally qualified and then have a paper rock scissors contest for one job.

Jerome on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:45 PM

"Tiger Claw" beats paper and scissors

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:47 PM

I'm gonna hurl

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:52 PM

I just want to help people

Phil on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 12:52 PM

joe, whatever happens, keep it to yourself until you're outta the locker room. Don't celebrate in front of guys who just died.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:01 PM

I quoted that to 2 of the 5 going to the meeting.

Phil on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:04 PM

did anyone respond "what if we are one of the deceased?" Because if so they are a worthy foe.

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:08 PM

Of course if you are one of the deceased, I'd go with "Up your butt Jobu".

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:12 PM

I'm gonna catch on somewhere else and everytime I play against you guys I'm gonna stick it up your fucking ass

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:17 PM

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:40 PM

They suspended the opening due to too many trainees and the affect the promotion would have on production so nobody was promoted.

Bigworm on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:46 PM

In other words, the economy sucks and we don't want to pay anybody more money?

Phil on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:47 PM

Hey. Ya know Joe, not getting a promotion can be a very painful thing. But it don't have to keep ya down for long. I mean, let me tell ya something from my own personal experience. I've never had a promotion interview like you, but I did get kicked in the balls once by a mule. Now, I thought I would be hurting for the rest of my life. But you know what happened the very next week?

My momma died. Hell, after that, I didn't care no more about my balls hurtin'. You see what I'm gettin' at?

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 1:52 PM

It has nothing to do with the economy. They are just going to hire externally instead of promoting. There is no motivation and office morale is horrible here. They just hired 2 externally last week. They feel promoting requires training 2 people while external hiring is only 1 person that needs to be trained.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 2:04 PM

There was another promotion from the position I was going for to even hire and they suspended that one also so the entire office is pretty irritated.

Phil on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 2:04 PM

You wanna help me with my real estate site? I'll give you 5% ownership of the company so when I sell it for 100 million dollars to some sucker you'll get 5 million.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 2:19 PM

I could see a union uprising out of this.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 2:30 PM

I think management just gave me blue balls. Getting me all excited then leaving me hanging like that and then crushing my hopes.

joe on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 2:37 PM

I just wanted to put on my headphones and rock out but my radio can't pick up shit and the best channels I can pick up are 102.3 and 100.5 so I just heard Hootie and the Blowfish and then "total eclipse of the heart." I really need to get my mp3 player i got for christmas up and running.

it doesn't look like it's in connection, i think they needed some repairs anyway, at least to the original fields. isn't trinity playing their home games at that park across from cox park now? i forget the name...munsoon maybe?

Joe - why did they decide to hire external candidates for?

I can tell you first hand when a company promotes from within, it can be hard for existing employees to work under their colleague or friend. You usually experience some type of counter production.

Do what I do, when you go home play some type of violent video game or just tear into your gf...that can be a fun stress relief. LOL

douglas on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 12:56 PM

do you tear into your girlfriend after a long day at work? how does abby feel about that?

joe on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 1:02 PM

Hiring externally requires training the promoted employee and training a replacement. Too much training.

I drink and kick puppies to release stress. Sometimes I get the dogs drunk too and then instead of dog fighting it is drunk dog vs. drunk human fights. The chick dog is in heat but the male is too retarded to figure out how to hump it so I am safe. If they do reproduce it is more puppies to kick but then again they could also gang up on me in the long run. It would be a small army of vengeful puppies out to take me down. It would be like Wade's fear of midgets and shetlund ponies.

Went to lunch at TGIFridays for someones birthday. it was 11:30 and the server asked if we would want like any drinks and I said is it noon yet and she said its 5 o'clock somewhere to which I followed with my parole officer would disagree. The horrified looks I got made it appear that people didn't think it was funny. I thought it was classic.

Phil on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 1:58 PM

after our hockey game, coach valvano was upstairs chatting it up with me and Pat. He was saying that Jay Bilas took T-Will aside and told him he's gotta stop finishing layups like a girl.

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 1:59 PM

He's right, Vince Carter made a nice living by being explosive.

joe on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 2:07 PM

There was an interview with T-Will on Sportscenter after the game Monday and the little sportscenter coming up blurb referred to it as happy happy joy joy. Also T-will said that he was thinking during the game what would Jay Bilas be saying on TV. So I agree that Bobby V said that.

Yeah I realize it more and more, it's a pipe dream that they come back for their senior and junior year. Personally, I think them two will talk it over and if one goes, both go. If one returns the other will be back to try to win a championship.

Lindley returning for senior season

Posted 3:00 PM ET - Eric Lindsey, UK Media Relations

They say the best things come in pairs. At UK, they come in threes.

After testing the NFL Draft waters, All-America cornerback Trevard Lindley announced Wednesday that he will stay at Kentucky for his senior season in 2009. Lindley was one of three UK players that explored the possibility of entering the NFL Draft, but all three are coming back.

“I sat down with my family and also talked to Coach (Rich) Brooks to discuss what I wanted to do,” Lindley said. “I want to get bigger and stronger and continue to improve.”

Lindley, a junior cornerback from Hiram, Ga., finished the 2008 season with a team-best 15 passes defended and 11 pass breakups, and tied for the team lead in interceptions with four. His 34 career pass breakups is a UK record

“I advised Trevard that he should strongly consider his option (of going to the NFL) because he was rated fairly high,” Brooks said. “I'm excited, and a little surprised, about his decision to return.”

His return, along with All-Southeastern Conference defensive end Jeremy Jarmon and All-SEC linebacker Micah Johnson, should bolster one of the SEC's best defenses in 2008. The Wildcats, who ranked 40th in the nation in total defense, helped guide UK to its third consecutive bowl victory in 2008, the first time in program history UK has won postseason games in three consecutive seasons.

“This enhances our chances of being a much better football team next year, when you have one of the top cornerbacks in the nation return,” Brooks said. “With seniors like Trevard Lindley, Micah Johnson and Jeremy Jarmon, our defense should be very strong going into the 2009 season.”

douglas on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 3:14 PM

fuck yeah! and call me optimistic, but i'm not so sure pat and meeks are gone

Barry on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 3:16 PM

lafell is going pro. charles scott and ciron black are returning. wait... none of you give a shit

douglas on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 3:18 PM

i give a shit, UK has to play LSU next year

Barry on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 3:23 PM

i don't think so. we don't play you again for awhile. Ricky Jean Francois is leaving too.

douglas on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 3:36 PM

it's every two years isn't it? last game was 07, i don't know, maybe i'm wrong. if we don't, then you're right, i don't give a shit either

Phil on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 4:42 PM

networking problems right now. i knew our network was acting wonky a full 3 minutes before out $25,000 worth of monitoring shit found out due to the sci...

Barry on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 5:41 PM

nope we play Florida every year, so we rotate the other 5 east teams, 2/year, home and home. Its more like every 4-5 years. We played Georgia at home this year, the last time we did that was the 2003 NC season

Phil on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 11:53 PM

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand i'm drunk

joe on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 8:18 AM

way to represent on the weekday drunk.

Phil on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 8:51 AM

so before I went out I was on some retarded message board where someone was asking for advice with his ex-gf. My 11:50 advice: "My ex-girlfriends have not responded to me. At this point in a relationship you'd fullly expected full penis in mouth fornication BUT NO. DO NOT expect your sexy/sex to follow the basic guidelines set forth by cinexmax because they are dirty whores that do not know the joys of having your special lady, that you love more than thing in the word, more than Left for Dead and more than clean socks. As awesome as clean socks can be I say avoid them. Because the DEVIL uses clean sock to 'clean up' if you know what I mean"

Brock on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 9:35 AM

Phil on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 9:40 AM

Insight fucking blows

Brock on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 12:48 AM

Has anyone seen black Bellarmine ball caps with just the knight symbol on them. I saw someone wearing one several months ago, but haven't been able to find any. The baseball team doesn't wear that kind of hat right?

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 7:47 AM

The baseball team is just the B. At one point we did have a hat that was maroon bill with a black hat and a knight emblem. Bellarmine sells merchandise?

Bigworm on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 8:32 AM

Barry - do you have any clue as to where Brandon Spikes was projected to go in the draft? I was really hoping he'd go, that guy is a freaking stud. He's big enough to stop the run and yet is quick enough to drop back in coverage.

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 8:58 AM

I hate incompetent ass clowns that fuck shit up

douglas on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:11 AM

the hate the baseball team had with the knight emblem was just our practice hat, we never wore it for games, the ones we wore for games always had the Boston B. Bellarmine has stepped up their merchandising efforts, they have a lot more hats and shirts and stuff in their bookstore now. I saw a lot more Bellarmine Football shirts on campus recently too

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:13 AM

Basketball team lost their first game last night

adrian on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:21 AM

Big andre smith will probably go number 1 if he entered the draft.

douglas on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:28 AM

yeah, they apparently lost it at the very end, they were bound to, it'll probably be good for them in the long run to lose

douglas on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:28 AM

take some pressure off

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:38 AM

Bellarmine knows all about losing

douglas on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:43 AM

yeah, i think they were getting too uncomfortable with all the winning and they needed to blow a game at the end to remind themselves of who they really are

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:44 AM

As Wiegandt doesn't get the credit

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9:48 AM

guy at worked asked me if I had an in at the Athletic Office to get him some tickets to the sold out games and of course I laughed. I don't think Wiegandt would hook me up, probably Chris though. Chris has more donating potential.

joe on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 10:27 AM

When I was there it would be the baseball team as over half the student section and then the rest was the SGA. The baseball team would make fun of one particular player on the opposing team first, then the SGA, then the cheerleaders and dance team and then our own players. Douglas has a good story about heckling a guy with the last name Enos. rhymes with something else.

Phil on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 11:16 AM

btw, friday night lights is on tonight at 9pm. The bitch of it all is that since they are technically repeats NBC isn't listing them as new on my DVR. So I had to set my DVR to record all friday night lights episodes that show up on NBC HD. If you set it to record all episodes it'll pick up all the ones on Universal.

The more you know.

douglas on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 11:17 AM

i played high school ball with matt enos at waggener, and for the KY Wesleyan game where he played i got horribly drunk on captain morgan's (which i still won't drink to this day b/c of that night) and was running up and down the student section yelling at him. there had to have been little kids running around asking their parents what a penis was that night

Kragthorpe might just go down as the most important UK recruit ever!

Brock - We had fun doing that. I think I looked into season basketball tickets to bellarmine and they were like 50 bucks. Last year I told Abby that I was going to snag a pair before they got good so we'd have seats (actually I was thinking for when we go D1 in 20 years)...she laughed.

Bigworm on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 4:52 PM

See that is the problem I have. If I were Hef, I'd be so doped up on Viagra I'd walk around with a hard on 24/7, but he's not. Instead he's giving weekly allowances and small talking. He should just marry the Bridget girl and walk away from the glory and pass it on to his hornball son (who is a teenager I do believe) who would atleast have a good time.

adrian on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 5:00 PM

There are some great players. This is the order i would take them.

I don't know who has the number one draft pick but below is the order i would go.

1) Andre Smith - I am tired of quarterbacks going number one and lineman are so much more valuable to the team.
2) Maualuga or Curry (best linebackers in the country)
3) Percy Harvin (Best player in college football by far)
4) Dicky Lyons

Bigworm on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 5:08 PM

The sad thing is, there is some hick in the sticks somewhere that agrees with #4.

I like Adrian's question. I think I'd go with the Phoenix. Dr. Manhattan is pretty bad ass being able to exist in all points in time and control things on a molecular level, but he's so mentally messed up. Jean would drive him nuts. When they meet, he'd end up saying something like, "And this is the moment I meet my ass kicker"

Did anybody watch the inaguration concert on Sunday? Are Shakira and Bono even US citizens? When I think Barack Obama I immediately think people like Steve Carrel, Jack Black and Jamie Foxx speaking their political voices. It was almost awkward to watch how much they are trying to push diversity. They did everything but an "ebony and ivory" duet at the Lincoln Memorial. Obama seemed thrilled when Garth Brooks sang 3 songs.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:30 AM

Didn't get to watch it.

joe on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:31 AM

The Bon Jovi duet was creepy

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:34 AM

So what was Obama's facial expression when Garth Brooks took stage?

I have to say I am kind of disappointed with Obama. For this inaguration they are using $49M in tax payer money, which is greatly more than any other inaguration in our history. In fact, I think you can sum the last 5 inagurations and it still doesn't equal this one. Surely he has the money left over in a private fund to pay for this damn thing.

joe on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:43 AM

Garth sang "American Pie" and "Shout". Neither of those are his. He attempted to look excited and sing along but it was painful. Obama during "Shout" looked like he wanted to be drunk in a toga in a basement of a frat house and during "American Pie" it was the look of wait he didn't sing this song.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:53 AM

What a minute? Who doesn't want to be drunk in a toga?

Brock on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:53 AM

If that $49M generates a $100M boost to the DC and airline economy, its probably a good investment.

I heard a commentator say something about people handing out Starbucks. Whoever paid for that probably single-handedly covered those taxpayer dollars.

joe on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 9:56 AM

Who paid for the eleventy billion port o pots?

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 10:08 AM

Brock - you are right it does, however, I figured he'd make a statement and use private funds to help spur the economy which would be an infinite return on investment.

douglas on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 10:08 AM

the government, the port o potty companies needed a bailout too you know

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 10:09 AM

Also, if it is $100M generated, what portion goes to taxes? So the government is still in the hole.

Posted to Craig's List Personals:

To the Guy Who Mugged Me Downtown (Downtown, Savannah)
Date: 2009-01-06, 3:43AM EST

I was the white guy with the black Burrberry jacket that you demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message. I'd like to apologize.

I didn't expect you to crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that evening, and it wasn't that cold outside. You see, my girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol for Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It's a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head, isn't it?

I know it probabl y wasn't a great deal of fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge flopping about in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse since you also ended up leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I couldn't have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us again. I took the liberty of
calling your mother, or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet itself in a dumpster. I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They'll be on your bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Alltel just shut down the line, and I've only had the phone for a little over a day now, so I don't know what's going on with that. I hope they haven't permanently cut off your service. I could only get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office with it. Oh well.
So, about your pants. I know that I was a little rough on you when you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so> I'd like to make it up to you. I'm sure you've already washed your pants, so I'd like to help you out. I'd like to reimburse you for the detergent you used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder? I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead making you walk back home humiliated. I'm
hoping that you'll reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky. If you read this message, email me and we'll do lunch and laundry. Peace!
- Alex

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 21, 2009 at 11:57 AM

I don't see anybody beating the Shamwow.

I actually have one of those things (a big shamwow and a small shamwow). My parents bought some at the home and remodelling show, because let's be honest, that infomercial has to be the most damn near most convincing thing ever.
I did the internet research and they basically said it was more like Scamwow, so I did my own test.

I filled up a 6x9 pan filled with 3/4 to 1 inch of water, and used the little Shamwow, which is roughly the same size as the pan. That little fucker picked up all the water in two tries. Keep in mind this thing is probably onlly has a thickness of 1/8". Needless to say, I was Shamwowed!!!!

I am tempted to pour out some coke on my carpet to see how well it picks it up, but at the same time, what jackass would intentionally spill coke on his carpet just to Shamwow it?

Phil on Wednesday, January 21, 2009 at 12:24 PM

jerome has a shamwow story regarding his basement flooding i think. i believe her created the Great Wall of Shamwow.

the patient went for a second opinion because they didn't agree with the therapy of "walk it off you pussy."

douglas on Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 10:10 AM

i was getting ready to ask if he was there to 'walk it off'. was there a band-aid on his broken leg or anything?

joe on Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Chris' other extreme from walk it off or rub some dirt on it would be to amputate everything. Was the leg cut off for ligament damage?

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 2:36 PM

We took care of this drunk ass of a patient who broke his hip. After we fixed him, he kept bitching about pain, and we literally told him to walk it off. He ended up coming back into the ER 3-4 times within a couple weeks after discharge, drunk still bitching about pain. Finally, he got drunk, fell, and broke the thing again. He was an ass to us, the nurses,and everyone who met him. One morning I came in a called him out on his drinking, so he called me a pretty boy. I was quite taken aback because of all the insults that could have been thrown my way "pretty boy" was the last I expected.

She didn't know what it was so I said not safe for work and she said I always use NWA (not work appropriate). She was unaware of anything else that went with NWA.

i got the cash money ready to go. i can't believe gerstles still had my freaking credit card. they've got good people up there.

douglas on Friday, January 23, 2009 at 10:09 AM

house update: we're signing a final contract this weekend, close in about two months. because it's a relocation company they wouldn't accept a contingency, so i've got two months to get my condo sold or i'm carrying two mortgages until i do, fun stuff. i'm basically saying fuck it b/c this thing is way below market value right now and rates are so low we can afford two mortgages, it's too good of an investment not to take. anything else at that size with a good location is at least 40-50k more expensive. long story short, i'll be back in civilization soon

joe on Sunday, January 25, 2009 at 1:56 PM

Do you think opposing stadiums were wife beaters with devendorfs name on the back. If Syracuse came to UL the fans should all wear wife beaters. Devendorf should have been suspended all season for hitting a woman.

joe on Sunday, January 25, 2009 at 2:18 PM

Who will have the best conference record: UL or UK?

Bigworm on Sunday, January 25, 2009 at 10:22 PM

If I were the big man on Cuse's team I would have punched Devendorf in the face and told him if he wants to act like a bitch I am gonna treat you like a bitch.

joe on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 7:52 AM

Devendorf is a douchebag, courtesy of the C-J:

Preston Knwoles threw up an airball midway through the first half and immediately drew the attention of the Big East's fiercest trash talker, Eric Devendorf. Then Devendorf made a three and told him about it. Knowles wouldn't relate what Devendorf was saying, probably because he didn't want to say what he said back. When Devendorf made a three to put Syracuse up 55-54 with 3:03 left, he started yelling at Knowles before the ball ever went through.

"It was just good fun," Knowles said.

Here's the last word: This is a U of L team that is beginning to specialize in getting the last word on opponents. It outscored Syracuse 13-2 after that.

douglas on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:01 AM

oh snap

joe on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:15 AM

When is the last time UL and UK were ranked? I think they will be this week.

douglas on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:23 AM

they were both ranked last year weren't they? i know UK hit the top 25 for a while there, and wasn't UL there most of last year?

joe on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:33 AM

I assumed UK never was ranked last year

douglas on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:35 AM

UK won like 12 in a row last year in the SEC after a rocky start, yeah, i'm pretty sure they hit it, but they fell out when they lost late in the conference season and again early in the SEC tourney. I could be mistaken, it's hard to remember shit from a year ago

douglas on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 9:51 AM

they were ranked the year before, too, in tubby's last year for a while, the difference has been though that they're cracking the top 25 as opposed to being at the top of the top 25, which is not good, but UK's already much improved over what they were at the beginning of the year, they'll finish this year ranked for sure

Bigworm on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 10:00 AM

I actually like what I am seeing from UK. I think they need another consistent scorer that can give them about 10-12 ppg. I think this should be Stevenson, but he only appears interested in scoring when Patterson is in foul trouble.

Luke Harongody is to the Big East what Hansborough is to the ACC. The officials protect him. My dad was going off yesterday talking about how much Harongody gets away with from pushing off to hacking players and gettting fouls called when he isn't even touched.

Bigworm on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 10:07 AM

Anybody see Chase Budinger get stomped on by the punk from Houston. This is why you need an enforcer on every college basketball team. Had Magloire been on Arizona's team, somebody would have been clotheslined, body slammed or fore arm smashed on the next play.

Long live Jamaal Magloire.

Yeah, fucking officials should have atleast t-d him up and probably should have kicked him out.

So I just went into the bathroom to read a magazine (Marshall's definition not Barney's). Wes, AJ is going to be at the potty training age soon, please teach him to put up the seat to piss so he doesn't pee all over the seat and also teach him to flush. I don't think we are on any government issued flushing restriction to save money on the water bill or anything but some grown men here pee all over the seat and don't flush. This isn't a once in a while occurence.

On a similar note, something interesting, I didn't take my headphones off and I was listening to the radio and has anyone ever read a magazine while listening to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger?"

So how down is the SEC in basketball this year?

UT beat Marquette and Georgetown, two of the four best BE teams, and probably won't finish in the top two in the SEC East. Arkansas beat the top two big 12 teams in Oklahoma and Texas and almost certainly will not even break even in SEC play. I don't even think Arkansas has won a game yet in the SEC.

douglas on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:15 PM

so true, while UL, the leader in the big east, needed a long buzzer beater at home to beat UK, the leader in the SEC, while it was able to dispatch the top Big East teams they've beaten much more easily

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:29 PM

Harvard beat BC who beat UNC who beat UK so the IVY league is way better then the SEC.

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:31 PM

And the ACC

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:31 PM

And Rice beat Harvard and Memphis beat UT so Conference USA is the best

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:31 PM

And based on that reasoning then better than the Big 12 and the BE because UK beat UT and beat Auburn which whipped Arkansas at home by 20.

GO RICE OWLS!!!!

Wait till you face UAB in the tourney again. Fear teh wrath of Mike Davis.

Anybody want to hop on the C-USA bandwagon with me?

C-USA doesn't fuck around, you beat them on the court they will stomp on your face. That is how they roll.

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:47 PM

OTS at Tulsa was C-USA before being C-USA was cool.

douglas on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:48 PM

i don't know why, but i kinda think meeks and pat pat will be returning next year, just call it a gut. i could be wrong, but i've heard pat pat talk about getting his degree a lot, since he got here, he's never been adamant about leaving early, plus i think he's been overshadowed in the press this year by meeks putting up unreal numbers. i think meeks could go the tyler hansbrough route after being a POY candidate mainly b/c pro scouts aren't gunning for him b/c of his size, he's sized more like a point guard or an undersized two guard in the nba, plus if he comes back, after hansbrough, griffin, and curry gone, he'd be all-everything next year for sure, not to mention leading a completely reloaded UK team w/ pat. i think they're either both gone or both staying, but i just kinda feel like they're staying

douglas on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:49 PM

i actually like mike davis, i liked him at IU b/c he brought some flare to the game, he's passionate and his self-censorship doesn't work very well, and the combination of the two make for an interesting coach. he just kinda says what he says and does what he does and doesn't give a damn

Phil on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 12:59 PM

i was looking at the nba draft predictions and they have Lorrenzo Wade going #47th overall
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAse...p;hs=zRs&q=%

did he ever learn to make a dunk? He never could finish. Isn't he in jail?

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:13 PM

Douglas, I remember reading something an NBA scout wrote about Meeks and Patterson. He thought both were very good players, but felt that both needed to return for another year.

According to him, Patterson needs to develop that 18-20 foot shot consistently and Meeks needs to be a great player because the SG position is the same position that the best players in the world play, so very good won't cut it. You have to be great at that position.

Phil on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:21 PM

apparently he can dunk and block shots and everything. it's a miracle!

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:27 PM

Ummm, who the hell is Lorenzo Wade?

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:29 PM

played 1 season at UL then transferred. He is no chad millard.

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:31 PM

In terms you will understand: When alex legion is drafted out of the fighting illini you will know how we feel. He is to UL what Alex Legion is to UK.

douglas on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:33 PM

legion's playing pretty damn well this year too, fucking tubby smith

Phil on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:34 PM

when lorenzo wade got busted for stealing a tv last year the card chronical site said "I'm sure he'll be back out there almost dunking in no time. "

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:34 PM

Douglas - Legion hasn't done shit this year from what I have seen. He was doing better in the beginning of the year, but I have my Alex Legion Watch on since his last game he saw the floor for 1 minute.

Joe if LW played a year, he did better than Legion. Legion transferred in half a semester.

douglas on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:36 PM

i haven't paid attention since the very beginning of the year when i caught part of an illini game on TV and the announcers were talking about his hot start and him being a valuable addition, i don't know shit that's happened in the last couple months with him though

Bigworm on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Alex Legion's stats for the 2008-2009 year.

Games: 20
Games Played: 10
minutes: 15.1
ppg: 5.5
rpg: 1.9
ast: 0.8

Seriously, how many dunks did he miss?

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:00 PM

He did it in style though. If Wade were at UL still Lorrezo Wade would be better then D-Wade with Pitino's mentoring and hyping.

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:01 PM

At least 1 a game. He would take off from the free throw line and do a 360 tomahawk and clang it back to mid court. It was beautiful.

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:01 PM

more athletic then T-Will.

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:02 PM

He is a long and athletic 6-6 with tremedous upside potential

Phil on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:06 PM

it's a shame no one put together a highlight real of his missed dunks. I think there was one where the ball slipped out of his hands before he took off but I think he still leaped from the free throw line and tried to tomahawk dunk his thumb.

joe on Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:09 PM

I heard that some insurance companies will cover the expense of food lost due to spoilage in power outages. Anybody have any information or experience?

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:35 AM

depending on your policy they will. i'd think it'd be a pain in the ass to get it all the paper work and shit done to get the $10 for the hot pockets that went bad.

joe on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:38 AM

Chris may be getting some good food tonight then. I'm burying some of the food in the snow till I can get it somewhere.

My car has been stuck for three days. So i haven't been to work since monday. I'm awesome.

douglas on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:43 AM

my power's out too, it was fucking cold this morning in my house, i had to sleep in my old spandex leggings i used to wear under my baseball uniform for cold games, with two extra covers. my sister works at marriott, so i might see if she can get a hook up for a hotel room unless my power's back tonight

douglas on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:44 AM

on a related note, b/c my power was out yesterday, i went and saw paul blart: mall cop, pretty good flick, extremely stupid, so right up my alley

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:55 AM

i was won of the last to get power last time so i'm not looking forward to this weekend.

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:58 AM

ugh, my brain is apparently not functioning yet.

joe on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:58 AM

St. Matthews cops weren't enforcing open container policies too strict yesterday. I was wandering the neighborhood with a back pack full of beer yesterday. The cop I stopped and talked to yesterday I should have offered a beer to. I don't know what he thought of me reaching into my backpack and pulling out a fresh beer while I was talking to him. Probably cared as much as he did about the dogs shitting in the middle of Hycliffe Avenue while we were talking.

Who wants to find abandoned houses and go looting tonight?

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:02 AM

according to the paper the st. matthews police were operating by candle light last night. the only thing i want to loot are more comforters

joe on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Gloucester is pretty much evacuated it looked like this morning.

Bigworm on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:17 AM

Joe - I have heard the cost of food might be covered by homeowners insurance. I am guessing it would have to be greater than your deductible though.

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:36 AM

I can't believe the courier redid their site just a year ago. what a piece of a shit that thing is to navigate. and right when I don't think it can get any worse, some thing starts talking to me. Jerks.

Why can't everyone come up with a timeless design ala NattySci.com?

douglas on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:39 AM

no need to revamp this. i do hate courier's website, it moves way too fucking slow, that and espn.com are always a pain

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:44 AM

right now I don't know what's new, what's an updated article or anything.

and the local tv stations don't seem to be much better. I should create my own news website. With hookers. And blackjack.

joe on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 10:48 AM

better yet forget the black jack

I was about to go out back and pummel my neighbor behind me's generator with a baseball bat. That thing was fucking loud. I think it is his tree too that took down the power lines too. Fucker will rue the day I find him.

Bigworm on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 11:25 AM

What a jackass, talking about insult to injury. His tree takes out the power and then that jackass starts up his generator. Tell him to prune his fucking trees.

Get this, a girl I work with just found out her sister had breakfast at Cracker Barrel with Vince the Shamwow guy. He was eating alone and she asked if he cared if she sat down and ate with him and he said only if you buy my breakfast and 10 shamwows.

Both Ty's and Chip's Jags had tree limbs fall on them.

The XJS got crushed, broken windshield, smashed roof.

Ty thinks his was saved from heavy damage because he went out and shoveled the driveway after the snow and clear off his car, but the ice came afterward and made a shell.

So that's the key, make sure your car has an ice-shell.

Never mind the fact that my two younger brothers have Jags and still drive a beat up Explorer.

Just got back from grabbing a quick lunch. On 4th street near UofL there are some huge ass trees down by the park. I saw a mansion that had a treet with a diameter of a couple feet laying on it.

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 2:00 PM

i was talking to a girl that i went on a few dates a couple of years ago. it turns out that it was so cold that her fish tank froze up with her fish in it.

she thought she should have put the fish in a jar and walked around with it like What About Bob

Bigworm on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 2:02 PM

Wow, that is when you know it's really fucking cold.

joe on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 2:03 PM

Yep, girl I work with has 2 dead goldfish because the water was too cold and the water water wasn't running cutting off oxygen in the water. I don't know the status of my 5 goldfish. I'm worried that the pipes will freeze and flood my basement and the cat will drown.

Bigworm on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 2:04 PM

Joe - when did you get a cat?

joe on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 2:06 PM

There is one running around the basement. It came with the goldfish and the dogs.

I have access to four horses too. One farm I go to has goats (not fainting goats unfortunately), miniature ponies and chickens where these horses are. Maybe someone can take him there for father's day. For all we know one of those animals might be from his seed.

Phil on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 4:54 PM

apparently they are talking about passing the piece of shit case legislation. they might give out vouchers for a couple grand for new cars if you give them your shitty car so they can smash it up. less environmental impact, less used cars on the market and new cars are being bought up. They might also have a tax incentive too.

now i just gotta keep the ol' accord running a little longer. I did a blue book value on the SOB and it is worth $750. If I do buy a new car I'd probably just keep it as a winter beater if they don't pass this legislation.

I have to question their map making skills. They are going by total number of people without power for their charts where I think % of people without power would give you a better idea of what sections are hardest hit right now: http://www.eon-us.com/storm/default.asp

Phil - I agree, it should be by % of people to show which areas got hammered the hardest. After looking at that map, my 40245 zip code is less than 2000 homes without power, so I'll be in that late range.

douglas on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 9:16 AM

I think Jacksonville is fine though.

I got to do math today at work! It wasn't real math but it was VA math tied in with a little real math.

The problem was our number is at 151 days. One action drops the number on average .35 days and another action drops it on average .1 days. How do we get to 140 days by tomorrow.

I have a really nice if then excel spreadsheet that I am not going to get credit for. Basically the task was given from the head of the office and then was passed down to a coach then to a Super VSR then to me a lowly VSR because I can do simple math and use excel. The credit is going to go back up the chain and the last person to touch it before it gets to the head of the office gets credit. I should have locked the file and made them come to me for the password to see it.

Bigworm on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 9:30 AM

Phil - the cash for clunkers idea is an interesting one.

I wonder how they qualify something as a clunker though? I wonder if it is based on age of car, condition of car or a little of both. I am also wondering if they give the same amount in a voucher or if they have a tiered voucher amount based on car MSRP or purchase price. I just have hard time believing two people would get the same voucher for a car that costs $15,000 vs. $49,500.
