CWP: Penne with a Meaty Vodka Pasta Sauce

Ok, time for the next installment of cooking with Phil. With zero deaths since I posted my last recipe, I think most will agree that this series has been much less deadly than anyone could have every anticipated. So onto the next recipe, my go to pasta dish - Penne with a a meaty vodka pasta sauce.

Stuff You Need

  • Penne (whole grain sucks, get the real stuff)
  • Salt
  • Patsy's All-Natural Vodka Sauce. Scarpetta Tuscan Vodka Sauce is nerr but the Dirty Kroger doesn't carry it because they are dirty fuckos. You could also make it from scratch too I guess, but fuck that noise
  • Italian Sausage Links
  • A skillet with a lid
  • A pot with a lid
  • One of those drainy things

Ok, you need to boil some water to cook the pasta in. Put like a couple of quarts of water into your pot - enough that your pasta will drown in it. Add some salt. I like salt. Some don't. I put like two tablespoons in there. Balls to the wall. Put the pot on the stove, cover it and crank that shit up to high and get it going. Stir it a bit to mix in the salt. I'm not sure it's needed, but it can't hurt.

Once the water begins to bubble and get ready to boil the timing is right to begin cooking your meat. It usually takes two sausages to satisfy me (no homo), but you might want to go with one for yourself. Three is probably a good number for three people. Remove the sausage link's condoms. We are going for pleasure, not safety here. Throw them on your skillet on medium heat. Chomp up the links into tiny little bite sized chunks and cook until it's brown.

Ok, once the meat is cooked the timing should be good for the pasta. I just eye ball the amount of pasta I want, but I guess one and a half cups (by volume) of pasta is about right for one person. Dump that into your pot and cover that shit back up to bring it back to a boil.

As it's coming to a boil, dump some pasta sauce in there. Once again I just eye ball it based on the amount of pasta and meat. I don't know, like a cup I guess. Whatever. Mix that meat and sauce together and cover your skillet.So by now the water in your pot should be going pretty good. Uncover the lid and stir up your pasta so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot because that sucks.

You want to cook the pasta sauce (stirring frequently) until it starts to bubble up and stuff. The pasta sauce is already cooked, so you are really just heating it up. Also keep stirring your pasta so it doesn't stick.

So the key to finishing this up right is waiting until the pasta is about done. I usually just grab one out of the pot and taste it. If it's still just slightly hard then it's good enough to do the job (no homo). Drain the water out. I like to put a plate over the pasta while the steam rises up and get the plate kinda hot. Adding hot pasta to a cold plate only makes the pasta cold quicker. So take your drained out pasta and add it in with the sauce to get it good and coated. Some people like to add like a teaspoon of the pasta water to get some of the starch mixed in to make the sauce stick to the pasta better, but I can't tell the difference. Stir it all up until it's good and covered.

Bam, now you got yourself a yummy meal.

Apparently I have a couple good watch dogs. Last night the dogs wouldn't quit barking and I kept yelling at them to shut up over and over. finally I got up to see what their problem was and there were 3 cop cars rolling down the street with spotlights on searching the area and they parked at the end of the street for quite a while and then got out and walked around. I let the dogs out and they barked at the backyard for a while. I think something was back there.

Joe you didn't want to go out there with your Louisville Slugger? Oh wait, you were a crafty lefty, nevermind.

Actually, I like to think you went outside and it went down something similar to this, but you were Crash Davis.

Ebby: [After he has challenged Crash to a fight] I don't hit no man first.

Crash Davis: All right, then... [throws him a baseball] ...hit me in the chest with that.
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: I'd kill you!

Crash Davis: Yeah? From what I hear, you couldn't hit water if you fell out of a fucking boat. [the crowd that has gathered gawks] Come on; right here, right in the chest.
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: No way!

Crash Davis: C'mon, Meat! Throw it! You know you're not gonna hit me, cause you've already started to think about it, eh? Thinkin' about how embarassing it would be to miss in front of all these people, how somebody might laugh? Come on, 'rook, show us that million-dollar arm. 'Cause I got; oh yeah, I got a good idea about that five-cent head of yours.

[LaLoosh throws the ball and misses Crash by several feet, breaking a window]
Crash Davis: Ball four.

Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: Who the hell are you, man?!

[LaLoosh charges at Crash, who drops him with one punch to the face]
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: Good punch...

Crash Davis: I'm Crash Davis; I'm your new catcher, and you just got lesson number one; Don't think. You can only hurt the ball club.

Phil - When do you think Subaru will enter the modern world and get rid of their four speed transmissions on their automatics? Do you know if they plan on offering a dual clutch transmission/direct shift gearbox like Audi does for their automatics anytime soon? If so, you would think they could put one in their WRX STI and not lose any power.

Of course, you won't be able to be awesome (drift) in an automatic but that is besides the point.

Phil on Saturday, June 06, 2009 at 2:10 AM

i didn't even know you could get a WRX in automatic. I thought when you selected automatic on the "Build Your WRX" they told you tough titties and recommended you pick up an economy size package of tampons from costco.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 06, 2009 at 9:38 AM

You can't get one in the WRX.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 06, 2009 at 9:40 AM

Everything I have read on the DSG transmissions, their power curves are better than manuals and the gear changes are electronic so they happen without human error. Of course, an automatic transmission would add additional weight to the car, which I know in the purist/enthusiast world is a big no no.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 06, 2009 at 9:43 AM

And a stock WRT STI does 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, so with an automatic you might be up to 4.5-.4.6 seconds.

Bigworm on Saturday, June 06, 2009 at 10:17 AM

I guess my biggest complaint is the fact the auto only has 4 speeds and the manual is a 5 speeder.

Brock on Saturday, June 06, 2009 at 5:37 PM

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 09, 2009 at 4:06 PM

"Taylor is one of the bigger flops in MLB draft history, as he's best known as being just the second amateur player to be taken first overall and never reach the majors (Steve Chilcott was first). Taylor flourished in the minor leagues, quickly ascending the Yankees' farm system. But he suffered a torn labrum while defending his brother in a fistfight in a North Carolina trailer park and he was never the same pitcher again."

First of all, why the fuck was a #1 drafted player in a trailer park?

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 09, 2009 at 4:07 PM

Matt Anderson - I have his baseball autograph because I thought he was actually going to be something. Fucking octopus.

"Anderson dominated the Southwest Conference during his time at Rice, posting a 1.82 ERA in his final season and setting multiple records. Anderson enjoyed a solid rookie season in 1998, going 5-1 out of the bullpen with a 3.27 ERA and 44 strikeouts in 44 innings (thanks in large part to a triple-digit fastball). But Anderson's career took a tragic turn when he participated in an octopus-throwing contest in an effort to win Detroit Red Wings playoff tickets. Anderson tore a muscle in his right armpit, losing his electric fastball forever."

douglas on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 3:33 PM

i've heard both on jodie meeks, my feeling is he's looking for a way to stay in the draft, and all the team's he's worked out for have late first round picks, and apparently he's been doing well, but who knows. i also think he's in a win-win situation, he either gets a guarantee for a first round pick and a nice nba contract, or he comes back on a loaded team and competes for a championship

joe on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 3:34 PM

What is the nba draft and the lottery, guaranteed money for only the first 13 picked?

douglas on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 3:40 PM

i was referring to a guaranteed first round pick, not guaranteed $. the difference in contract $ between first and second round picks is quite substantial. i think you're right about the lottery...

also, let the pitino to USC rumors begin:

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 3:47 PM

NBA draft picks have guaranteed contracts (guaranteed money) if they are a first round draft pick, unless you are a foreign player as there are some special circumstances surrounding these players. This is also why some teams pick the foreign players, because they have their rights but can keep them overseas so they don't have to pay them just yet.

Brian Guinn was on ESPN radio last night arguing the most dominant sports team of the last decade. The host narrowed it down to the Redwings, Patriots, USC football, Michigan State basketball, San Antonio Spurs and the Red Sox or Yankees. Guinn said USC football.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 3:57 PM

USC was never a unanimous champion in the past decade were they?

douglas on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 4:00 PM

seeing as how i don't know shit about hockey, i'm not including the redwings, but out of those it's definitely the patriots. michigan state only won one championship in the past decade, like in 2000, although they've been to several final fours. but north carolina's been more dominant than michigan state has. yankees absolutely not, red sox more than the yankees, but i'd still go with the pats over them.

joe on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 4:02 PM

I like UNC basketball more then MSU basketball.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 4:03 PM

In 2003 USC was Co-champioins, in 2004 this says they won outright. They would have been co-champions had Auburn not started the season so low. Personally, I think I couldn't rank them as the most dominant team the past decade. Sure they had a pretty nice run, but it looks like they underperformed to me.

I hate to say it, but the Patriots look like the most dominant team...mainly because I don't know shit about hockey nor am I willing to take the time to look up the Redwings. The Spurs had a pretty nice run as well. Michigan State has made it to the Final Four like 4 or 5 times in the last decade but I think they only won once (2002?). Yankees have had some really shitty seasons lately, if we were doing the past 20 years, they would win hands down.

Phil on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 4:08 PM

red wings have finished first in their division every year since 2000, when they finished second. actually, they've finished second four times since 1991. the last time they finished worse than second was in 1990.

but this decade they were ok. best record in 4 of the years, two stanley cup champions.

but the pats have been 1st in the afc east this whole decade. Three super bowls and one super bowl loss in that time frame. That's pretty dominate in my book.

USC lost to freaking stanford

joe on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 4:17 PM

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 9:20 AM

Of the real sports we all care about, I think you would have to give it to the Pats with their string of Super Bowls. If we were talking about the 90's, you could make an arguement for the Yankees with 12 or 13 straight AL east championships and however many world series. I don't think anyone in the college ranks even really deserves much consideration. There have been a few good teams USC, OSU, UF, but none of them really dominated. OSU dominated the Big 10, but couldn't beat anyone else.

joe on Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 9:34 AM

not to even touch on the social costs that would be created and / or the general annoyances of having to deal with stoned teenagers everytime I go to a starbucks or something.

Bigworm on Friday, June 12, 2009 at 9:47 AM

Douglas - I think it would be far more lucrative than you think. First of all, the state could mandate a tax at the farming level and at the consumer level, and since this is a luxury item, it would be a very high percentage tax.

You impose similar restrictions on driving while stoned as you do with drinking. Put an age limit restriction to 21 years of age and anyone smoking underage pays a fine.

I would take it even a step farther and create a marijuana license, that people had to carry on them while smoking the shit. You can have varying degrees of the license from a 30 day license that you could sell to tourist that were coming into town for something like $30 bucks a pop and then the 1 year license that you would sell to people in Kentucky or neighboring states that would to contribute money to our economy. That license should sell for $100-150 bucks annually. Before anybody can receive a license they have to watch a video on the effects of marijuana on their body and they sign their life away by not holding the state responsible.

If done right, you can make a shit load of money.

douglas on Friday, June 12, 2009 at 10:26 AM

by no means am i prude, i used to smoke weed, quite a bit actually in high school. it was far easier to get than alcohol when i was underage. i could give two fucks if someone smokes it, to each his own. however, with all those regulations you just laid out, you just created a shit ton of new government programs that cost all the money you make from any marijuana tax income. and then you put an age limitation on it, guess what, you're still sending people to jail and overcrowding them, costing taxpayers money still, which runs counter to the reason it was legalized in the first place. the famous law of unintended consequences, which pop up virtually every time government gets involved with anything.

and to add on to that, i don't care how many people say they know someone who smokes weed everyday and they're perfectly productive, there are far more that aren't. i know a shit ton of people who became lazy fucks because they became potheads, and hence far less productive in their lives and/or careers, which in turns has a negative effect on the economy as a whole. if you don't believe me, i invite you all to my 10 year high school reunion next year. and no matter how many potheads tell you weed's not a gateway drug, it is. every cokehead starts out on weed, no one starts out getting high on meth and coke and heroin, it's a progression. sure, there's lot of people that don't move on to harder drugs, but if weed's that much easier to get and socially acceptable, more people try it, and then when that's not cutting it anymore, they move on to harder drugs. so do you then go on to legalize harder drugs? once again, you're stuck with more government programs and taxpayer money spent on jails, cops salaries, and government programs to regulate it, and then more government programs designed to get people off of it (think AA or support groups). the whole thing boils down to growing government and making it bigger and more inefficient than it already is, which might create more tax revenue, but will create a ton more government expenses.

and once more, i don't want to have to deal with stoned people every time i leave my house. it's annoying, and i don't want them around my kid

Bigworm on Friday, June 12, 2009 at 10:42 AM

I understand what you are saying and I really don't want to turn this into a pro-against debate. I think the opportunity is there to make a lot of money for the state, until it is quantified we don't know how much (which would take into account additional programs/services that would need to be created).

if he was latino he'd be just another guy on the roster. half the latinos baseball teams sign are about that age. they sign them for dirt cheap and hope they hit a home run on a few of them. the only two differences are harper's white and his birth certificate is probably legitimate.

Just because you lose Meeks doesn't mean bring Porter back. It's not like he suddenly becomes a terrific shooter are a better athlete. I am not saying he can't contribute at some point, like maybe give some guy a breather for 2 minutes but it's not like he is going to become a UK caliber player.

douglas on Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 2:43 PM

joe - late response but hobbs was basically fucking high school girls at manual. i don't think he was actually fucking them while they were students, just flirting and stuff, but he was fucking recent graduates and word was getting around about his "inappropriate behavior." so now he's teaching at eastern if i'm not mistaken.

joe on Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 2:54 PM

That is the story I heard. I just figured you would tell the story better.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 3:37 PM

Brock - I have not heard of that Alumni event. It sounds like it would be worth the $25 to go though.

douglas on Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 3:42 PM

well it all started when he saw one of his ample-breasted female students bent over a desk picking up her backpack, wearing a too-short skirt and v-neck sweater that allowed hobbs an unobstructed view of her barely legal c cups. he crept up from behind her, ever so seductively, and proceeded to dry hump her plump bottom. as continued this motion for what seemed like three hours and countless exclamations of "you like that shit don't you" a male teacher who heard the moaning from the next room poked his head in to watch the proceedings. the other teacher even went so far as to toss an open condom through the crack of the door. the next day, a female student's rival on the cheerleading team, jealous that she wasn't the one dry humped for hours on end to exhaustion by hobbs, found the condom. she took a photograph of the "evidence" which she then took to the principal's office. that's how hobbs got fired from manual

better?

joe on Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Sorry for the misinterpretation, I meant you would tell the story better then me. Your original explanation was fine.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 10:11 AM

I was fairly satisfied with my total. Without making myself sick, I was able to put down 75, and that included a tall Killian's. If I had stuck with water and was willing to toe the line with the toilet, I may have made a run at 100.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 10:15 AM

Goddamn rain fucking up my vacation. I'm still holding out hope that things may dry up before the game. It looks like there's a 30% chance of rain from 5-8PM then it increases to 50%. At least the chances look like we may get a few beers in and hope for a rainout.

Phil, you and Ty should get together and have a ceremony to commemorate the loss of your Xbox's. His is strewn about my parent's basement in a feeble attempt to resurrect it. Much like Frankenstein.

Brock on Friday, June 19, 2009 at 1:44 AM

Since Chris is shitty-faced at the moment: exact text response I received @ 11pm - "G dm nt pjaw gdmjj," which translates into "Goddamn it! Not playing golf!" I consider myself an expert anthropologist of the drunken Burket culture and hence can interpret the clicks and grunt and sign language.

For those of you I failed to text this evening. I was thinking about playing some golf Sunday in the AM (A case of Red Bull may be necessary). I played rather well last weekend in Bardstown (which means I only lost 10 golf balls), so I am anxious to embarrass myself again.

I'd also be up for a Saturday AM run of the Seneca Park basketball courts if anyone is interested. All of my bum-ass brothers are mooching my parents this summer, so I figured I'd toss a bucket of water on each in the morning and make them play b-ball.

joe on Friday, June 19, 2009 at 7:51 AM

I could be down for basketball possibly.

Chris had a good time last night. It was a good evening of cheap beer at the bats game followed by beer and food at the BArrett Bar. It was like a family reunion at the Barrett Bar.

douglas on Friday, June 19, 2009 at 7:59 AM

Anybody happen to be downtown and want to do lunch? I might end up being that creepy guy walking alone to get food.

Bigworm on Friday, June 19, 2009 at 1:34 PM

Well that is one way to look at it, but I tip on carryout when I call something in from O'Charleys. They have a person that is dedicated for people who place take out orders and they are the one responsible for putting it together and taking the extra steps of segregating my buffalo chicken sandwich from the bun so it's not soggy.

They also show me my food before i leave with it so I make sure it is up to my standards and not slopped together.

It is my way of saying thank you, especially when it is a hot chick that is in some tight black pants.

Could they put any more restrictions on that thing? I think we should get the biggest eaters we know and see how much damage we can do in that hour. Unfortunately, our limiting factor would be the slow service. When does the hour start, after you see a waitress, they take your drink order, your food order, or when you finally get your food? Given all that what's a reasonable goal to set for 10 of us? 300?

joe on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 10:18 AM

I have no clue what the service will be like. Honestly I think a good server between me, you, dad and cuban would be close to 300.

douglas on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 11:02 AM

the speech was good, bryce gave one too, he went first and he read his, which was pretty long, so I shortened mine a bit, i was winging it anyway so i didn't go on too long. I dropped a joke about ashley and her mom writing each other poems for the rehearsal dinner, which were corny as hell, i dropped a line about losing a pretty good wingman. ashley screwed up her vows and said "wealth" where she was supposed to say "health" so I jumped all over that one. i was told i gave the best one so who knows

Brent on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 11:41 AM

Nice work with the speech, I always like to see someone talking rather than reading. So did you pull off making a golddigger comment about the bride with everyone laughing?

douglas on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 11:47 AM

at the end i just toasted to 'health, wealth, love and happiness' and said something like i'll let everyone figure out what's most important to ashley. it got the biggest laugh of all the speeches

joe on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 12:11 PM

Only problem is in 3 weeks Scroggin can get his revenge on you in his speech at your wedding. You set the standard and he can with it. It is like playing the game who can hit the softest and let the other person go first.

well played douglas

Brent on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 12:22 PM

Joe, its always better when you strike first, now he has the pressure of being funny. Worst part is trying to throw in a wedding burn, that's pretty difficult to do. You're definitely bordering the line of the dark side with a wedding burn, one wrong word and you get silence.

joe on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 12:23 PM

All right, 4th of July is coming up soon. I think the same plan as usual is going to work. Water sports early on followed with cookout and whatever else the night brings on. Bring food and beer. I know Phil is possibly going elsewhere with hockey people and Laura is leaving at some point too to meet up with hockey people. Cuban and I are leaving at some point to meet up with Douglas’ bachelor party at Horseshoe Casino. I don’t think Douglas will mind if anyone else goes with us. So I don’t know what the evening plan will be. I don’t plan to buy any fireworks this year. Any thoughts or concerns?

douglas on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 1:04 PM

joe, that's why I toned it down a bit, I didn't want to make any hooters or bullitt county references that could bite me in the ass at my wedding. as for my bachelor party, anyone can come that wants to, plan is golf around noon, then dinner, then gambling. we're probably getting a private poker table in the vip section as well, and i think we're getting a suite or something so anyone that stays can pitch in and not have to worry about driving home tipsy or getting an expensive ass cab ride

Wedding toasts are fucking retarded. It should be limited to the best man and made of honor at the most. If it's so long where you need notes, then it's too long. Even if you don't need notes, it's probably too long anyway. There should be a basic pattern everyone follows so nobody looks too retarded or has to listen to anyone struggle. Thank the parents (optional, but nice), make a little joke (never at the bride's expense), SHORT anecdote about how you know whoever, then end something nice and heart-felt (or at least make it sound sincere). Not that I have a communications degree or that I am a great public speaker, but I think this can save most of the wedding guests and toaster's from a bad experience.

I became buddies with some guys from a few of their teams. They told me to get the hell out of the park after the game, and they weren't joking. Those dudes got in their car and got the fuck out after the whistle if they had the late game.

Strangely, it was the only league I ever played in where there weren't any fights.

It has reached the point of so and so is not talking to so and so because they are friends with some one else and lunch tables have disbanded and people are ostracized for eating lunch with someone who isn't talking to another person so they are trying to sabatoge that person. I brought a deck of cards and played gin or rummy or gin rummy, i can never remember which is which, with someone in a break room on a different floor of the building to avoid the cat fights.

"Like watching paint dry while getting hit over the head with a frying pan!" (Bradshaw, Guardian); "Sums up everything that is most tedious, crass and despicable about modern Hollywood!" (Tookey, Daily Mail); "A giant, lumbering idiot of a movie!" (Edwards, Daily Mirror). The first American review, however, reported that it "feels destined to be the biggest movie of all time" (Todd Gilchrist, Cinematical). It’s certainly the biggest something of all time.

douglas on Tuesday, June 23, 2009 at 4:06 PM

Brock on Tuesday, June 23, 2009 at 4:19 PM

The plot in the first movie wasn't very good, so I don't expect this one to be better. The whole point of these films is the action. However, I do worry about it being to quick and jerky to visually take all in.

That being said, I'll be paying an excessive amount to watch it in the theaters.

joe on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 7:49 AM

Dude, its texas girls and louisiana girls, they are going to be hot. Where was your JUCO , Pennsylvania? You look at the DII and the girls were better looking the further south you went. Wisconsin Parkside didn't bing much of an A game but West Georgia had some lookers.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 8:03 AM

Like Joe said, it's not just D1, it's perinneal powerhouses playing in the college world series. I'm not saying these guys are as popular as some of the football players, but they are at baseball schools and have the possibility of huge contracts. They are going to get some ass.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 8:05 AM

As far as going south, I don't necessarily think they get hotter, but they wear less clothes. It's like the first warm day at Bellarmine, girls came out of the woodwork just to sit in the sun. Of course, they may migrate south too, so they can sit in the sun.

douglas on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 8:38 AM

plus at bellarmine you have to factor in the surroundings and your expectations of hot pieces of asses in direct correlation with the amount of time spent at bellarmine. meaning, a dime piece at bellarmine is like a six at UK. and that first day of summer is always glorious and / or misleading. you're so excited to see cleavage that you don't always pay attention to whether said cleavage is any good or not

douglas on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 8:38 AM

plus the great reviews for transformers keep coming in, zero stars and basically saying anyone that enjoys this movie is a dumbass:
http://movies.msn.com/movies/movie-...-of-the-fallen/

joe on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 8:45 AM

a JUCO 10 is a D-3 8 which is a D-2 6 which is a D-1 4. Coorelate that to the average temperature of the university and that will provide the attractiveness of the baseball fans. I do remember sitting in the bullpen on warm days at bellarmine and the right fielders always commenting on the girls in the stands. That is what douglas and chris were referencing, Bellarmine was the furthest south in our conference and misleading. Then again, I would say that of a population sample of Bellarmine's campus, the girls that attended Bellarmine baseball games were typically above average for Bellarmine.

joe on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 8:47 AM

Barry could weigh in on this subject. He did undergrad at North Alabama, a more southern D2 powerhouse in baseball and grad school at LSU, A D1 powerhouse in baseball. Barry, thoughts on girls from your colleges?

Jerome on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 9:08 AM

I think more research should be done on the subject. I'm curious to see how Wichita State would score. The girls there aren't as hot, but then they start throwing up the shocker and, well ... they can get 5%-20% additional points.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 9:12 AM

I also think as you move south, the warmer temperatures cause you to want to eat less filling things. That helps keep the weight off of the ladies.

How long into the draft will it take T-Will to make an ass of himself doing something goofy?

How long till a player is seen with a women who we are uncertain of whether she is his mom or baby momma and who?

I wish that would happen, but the kid is too good a scorer to go undrafted and unlike Morris he isn't lazy. Plus he has an NBA body already.

joe on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 10:16 AM

If Earl is a lottery pick then UL will have a nice recruiting tool in the 2 lottery picks in the same draft.

Rondo is getting some bad publicity right now.

douglas on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 10:34 AM

meeks will absolutely get drafted, more and more are saying he's gonna go first round, and if he doesn't, they're saying he's a steal for any team in the second round. word is minnesota has told him they will not let him go past their pick in the second round if he's still available, which is early in the second round. apparently chicago's showing a lot of interest, as are the nets and memphis, which all have late first round picks. clark is top ten for sure, i think t-will is late lottery, 13-15 maybe

Bigworm on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 10:41 AM

I think T-will will go before Clark. And Jodie will make late fist round if not early second.

Brent on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 12:30 PM

I don't see Meeks going first round, I think he'll be lucky to go into second round.

Earl was ahead of T-Will until just the past couple of weeks. Experts have said T-Will is the most ready to play player in the draft. They think he will be an effective player that will last over 10 years and never make an all star team. Earl has been described as a poor mans lamar odom. Jodie Meeks is described as Eddie House, and every playoff team needs Eddie House.

douglas on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 4:08 PM

there will be a lot of europeans picked though b/c if they choose them in the first round, b/c of those buyouts, they get out of their guarantees they're supposed to give first round picks, so they'll take these europeans in the first round, and hope to find a diamond in the rough in the second round or on the free agent market for a lot less money

There are a lot of wierd rules for foreign players. I think a lot of teams pick those players because if they develop great, if not, they aren't out anymore money. They can leave them with their foreign club and not have to pay them a salary, therefore, no additional money against the salary cap.

Phil on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 4:36 PM

Brent, I posted my assessment last night. Overall, If you want to see giant robots beating the shit out of each other, the movie is awesome

If there is any other reason you want to see it, (other than Megan Fox) the movie will disappoint you

It did include more Transformers mythology, which was cool.

joe on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 6:47 PM

How retarded is this?

John Smoltz gets $125,000 for his first day on the active roster and $35,000 for each day he stays on the active roster until Oct. 3. He'll get $500,000 more if he's on the active roster on the last day of the season.


That's on top of his salary. And he got shelled for 4 runs in the first by the fucking Nationals with a loss.

douglas on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 8:10 AM

this is a true exchange between myself and my daughter last night as the TV was on and there was absolutely nothing on besides michael jackson coverage:
Kaelyn: Daddy, is that jackson a girl or a boy?
Me (Laughing): It's a boy sweetheart.
Kaelyn (Looking confused): That's a boy?
Me: Yes it is.
Kaelyn (still confused): Is it like a man-woman or something?
Me (laughing uncontrollably): No, it's a man, i promise sweetie.
Kaelyn: Are you sure, that just doesn't look like a man.
Me: I swear, it's a man.
Kaelyn: Then he needs to cut his hair.

joe on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 8:13 AM

Bill Simmons' draft diary from last night -- Bilas said Griffin could "finish with either hand" twice in eight seconds. I'm 39 years old. It still made me laugh.

joe,

they moved my team to waterfront plaza 22 E. Aren't you in waterfront plaza?

joe on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 9:58 AM

I'm the 4th floor of waterfront plaza.

douglas on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 10:42 AM

i like bill simmons take on T-will getting drafted:

5:37: Fresh off exchanging their best player (Vince Carter) for Orlando's sixth-best player (Courtney Lee), the Nets make amends with their 470 fans by grabbing quirky Louisville swingman Terrence Williams (in my opinion, the last 2009 prospect with a chance to be a top-four guy on a title team). Given that T-Will routinely walked around the Louisville campus wearing SpongeBob pants and a Barbie backpack, it's as if they drafted a best friend for Brook Lopez. They can go to comic book conventions and dress like "Star Wars" characters together.

5:40: We see Rick Pitino applauding the pick in the stands. Do Pitino and John Cusack go to the same secret foreign country that regenerates hair? Pitino looks like Michael Landon right now.

5:41: Damn it! Why did that Williams interview last just 45 seconds? I was looking forward to that all night! That was like spending only 45 seconds talking to CT during a "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" reunion. I'm furious. Such a frustrating draft. Nothing's going right. Even Ric Bucher's hair looks off.

Phil on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 2:04 PM

i think my right eye is still drunk from last night.

Bigworm on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 2:10 PM

I agree. I was highly disappointed they didn't give us more T-Will. He would have easily won over the fans.

douglas on Friday, June 26, 2009 at 2:16 PM

joe on Monday, June 29, 2009 at 9:39 AM

Cuban and I are leaving at some point to go to the casino for Douglas' bachelor party. I think Chris will be there after I leave possibly. Honestly, the details are the same as every year. Bring food and beverage and a grill will be lit. I have no clue what anyone should bring but I am thinking I'll buy some burgers, dogs, and buns and light the grill.

I think Ed McMahon was my favorite of the group.

douglas on Monday, June 29, 2009 at 10:23 AM

any of the 3 other than michael jackson. billy mays seemed to be a really nice guy, and i loved that new show of his "pitchmen." i think mays is the most devastating, fawcett and mcmahon were expected, mays came out of the blue. and don't forget david carradine, it's been a bad month for celebrities. so if you go by the death comes in 3s rule, the first 3 were carradine, mcmahon, and fawcett. jacko started a new rule, mays was 2, so who's next? wanna start a pot?

Wrecking Crew on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 1:51 PM

Norton is just fucking things up everywhere. Despite the fact that UL still has a residency the program is in the shitter. Most of their residents are leaving. The new people they hired aren't even full time faculty. They are locums, which means they have a real job somewhere else and fly here to take call for $10,000 a day. The faculty they did hire haven't done trauma since residency. And rumor has it one of them was practicing radiology in the states with neurosurgery training from Brazil. Hopefully, I don't have a head injury any time in the near future that UL people have to take care of.

I don't know much about the Anthem thing except people with anthem insurance who want surgery at a Norton facility are trying to get it done ASAP.

yeah, my boss is pretty pissed, her husband's insurance is thru anthem, and she has a couple young kids, and basically after midnight, according to her, anyone that has anthem insurance can't use kosair or any other norton facility. they'll get something worked out, from my limited knowledge, it's just a matter of whether its done before midnight tonight or not

Calipari milked that image in Memphis. Cronin has graduated every player he's coached thus far, so UC can afford a 1-and-done.

Brock on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Joe, you have to beat them with an empty bottle of tequila first.

If I enroll in UofL, can I get a Spongebob backback and pee in the water fountains in the women's dorms?

i'll never forget seeing t-will at the UK-UL football game, talking on one phone, texting into another, and a third on his hip

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:05 PM

i'm guessing one phone was a direct line to his drug dealer, and another to his tattoo artist

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:36 PM

Lance Stephenson wanted to come to UK, but Cal said he was a taker instead of a giver (whatever that means). Looks like UC will end up on probation before UK.

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:43 PM

wes, you see where xavier henry's dad just did an interview with a kansas radio station, apparently xavier's having second thoughts about kansas and UK is a top option. could be interesting, they're supposed to have a family meeting tonight to discuss

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:43 PM

Of course, the big news is that Xaiver Henry could possibly wind up at UK.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:44 PM

Douglas that is just funny.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:45 PM

Douglas - I have been sitting on some information for a bit, because I didn't think it would happen. Basically it is coming down to Henry to UK with his brother because Meeks is gone.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:47 PM

Not sure if you heard the radio thing, but this is the overview.

Henry has gone on to say that he was going to be on the radio yesterday and someone told him that Xavier and CJ wanted to go to UK so he cancelled. He goes on to say that he has not talked to his sons but that he is on his way home to meet tonight with them tonight to figure out what the deal is. He then goes on to say that they made a commitment and should stick to it then 30 seconds later says that he can do whatever he wants. Part of this is based on Henry apparently being friends with some guys at UK. Is now saying the mom is out of it.

A couple of weeks ago his youngest son told him he wanted to go to Kentucky.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:48 PM

Oh and Wall and Cousins have been talking to X and CJ about playing at UK. Basically, if Cal gets this...nobody is untouchable in recruiting. I mean c'mon both parents are Alums of KU.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 3:51 PM

And in the who gives a shit I was never good enough to be at UK to begin with news....Donald Williams is going JUCO.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:11 PM

Brock - Not to get you down, but if Xaiver opts to go to UK look for Bill Self to make a run at Lance Stephenson.

Brock on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:16 PM

That's a lot of shady cards falling for that to happen.... and you claim UC will go on probation before UK?!

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:21 PM

apparently the only reason he committed to kansas in the first place was b/c his mom didn't want to move, but is now saying if he really wants to go to kentucky she'll move. that's according to rumors around kansas. and now that meeks is gone he wouldn't have the competition at his position and he could start immediately. apparently this has been brewing for awhile now, i had heard something in those regards a while back when xavier didn't go to summer school, which most athletes do, but it was brushed off, so i never thought anything of it. not saying it will, but if this happens, there is no comparison, greatest recruiting class ever

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:25 PM

as for this being shady, it's actually not, xavier didn't sign an LOI b/c he committed after the signing period, so he's actually free to go wherever the hell he wants

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:26 PM

Well he signed one with Memphis and you can't sign two.

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:26 PM

plus he's not enrolled at kansas yet either so it's not a transfer situation

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:27 PM

that's what it was, also, whatever happens, as long as he leaves kansas i'm happy, b/c UK looks better by kansas getting worse

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:28 PM

Phil on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:28 PM

douglas on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:36 PM

are they, I have no idea, they just seemed like a good midrange one, not the most expensive, but not the cheapest. i think sarah ended up picking those out. and xavier's dad said he's not going to europe, he wants the press from playing in the US

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 4:38 PM

On June 1, Zimpher officially left the school to become president at SUNY. Already, the Bearcats are back in the game. With Stephenson, emphatically so. It's hard to emphasize just how questionable Stephenson is: there are already issues surrounding his eligibility (the NCAA will be launching an investigation into an MTV2 show about Stephenson's life any day now), his attitude, his pending sexual assault case, and so on. Throw in the usual risks you take with one-and-done players -- they don't show up for class in the spring at best; they aid in a complete and utter breakdown of your program at worst -- and you can see the stakes here. Cincinnati isn't just playing a risky bet. They're going all in.

It reeks of desperation, which, little known fact, actually smells like Bob Huggins's cologne. And so the circle of life is complete.

that's a good idea phil, not sure how profitable it could be, but your overhead wouldn't be that much, just the limo itself and cleaning expenses, and of course gas. louisville's not as big as other cities though so it's relatively easy to get around town, but it's probably feasible

HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT?

You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. It is from an orthopaedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!


1.Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......) and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.


2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand.. Your foot will change direction.

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

best elevator story i ever heard, my uncle harris was in a crowded elevator with my great uncle billy, who was probably 70 or so at the time. it was completely quiet with everyone looking at the numbers, and harris turned to billy and said "It's really great to see you back in men's clothes" apparently the old man was so completely flustered he couldn't respond and everyone in the elevator was uncomfortably quiet

joe on Thursday, July 02, 2009 at 1:44 PM

On the topic of awkward comments with no responses, Paul's dad Sal met Laura and the first thing he said to her is something along the lines of, "nice to meet you, you're the first white woman I've seen joe bring around." Then again I can't recall many comments from Sal that weren't awkward.

"Hey Girl...whatchu doin here?"
"I work here, whatchu doin."
"One of my boy's got shot...you gotta man."
"Nah"
"Lemme get your number"
"Okay"
(He hands her his phone and she puts in her number only the tone isn't turned off) "beep beep beep-beep beep beep beep"
She gets off the elevator, he gets off one floor later, I stand there amazed at the size of this guy's balls.

Bigworm on Monday, July 06, 2009 at 9:37 AM

Oh I forgot the excerpt.

In an interview with the Detroit News, Kid Rock said the following about "ABB," which is described as an American lager: "People that like premium beers and Guinness is their of choice, they will not like this. I want this to be like the beer I drink (see right). You grab it, you share it with your friends, it's refreshing, it's cold, it gives you a good buzz. Done."

Pure poetry.

Kid Rock also said print ads for the beer take shots at Budweiser and Corona, but not Coors (See photo above, again), one of his former endorsers.

"No, not Coors," Kid Rock told the Detroit News. "Coors was very good to me."

joe on Monday, July 06, 2009 at 10:09 AM

At the Barnstable Brown party Kid Rock made them go out and buy him a case of coors one year because Budweiser sponsored the party or something.

I was at a cookout Wednesday and this guy asked me if I wanted a beer and I said sure. He asked what kind I would like and i said I didn't care. He followed with something like "there are 3 kinds of beer: your beer, free beer and good beer." Basically the point was people will drink anything as long as it is cheap.

Bigworm on Monday, July 06, 2009 at 10:11 AM

If you miss that, you can check it out all day, they are pretty much playing it over and over. Good chance that Lance Armstrong may nab the yellow jersey. His teammate and maybe stronger rider fell asleep today and lost 40 seconds...so now the leader of the team is wide open.

douglas on Tuesday, July 07, 2009 at 9:08 AM

yes, lance is in 3rd, the guy who was supposed to be the leader on the team dropped from 2nd to 4th, so now i'm guessing they'll go back and forth with one another helping both stay near the top and duel it out towards the end, which would benefit lance. i'm actually amazed he's so high this early, usually he's lower than this and plunges up to the front during the mountains, could be bad for other people if he's already this high

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 07, 2009 at 9:28 AM

Douglas - You are absolutely correct. If Lance is the Lance of old, he is going to destroy people this year, since he is so high up. I wouldn't be surprised to see him break out the champagne already.

joe on Tuesday, July 07, 2009 at 9:46 AM

Hopefully he doesn't blow his load to early and fade. I think there is a testicular cancer joke in there somewhere.

true, plus it'll be just an unbelievable sporting achievement, to win that at age 37 after retiring for a few years

And as he receives the trophy he needs to go "fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, your cool, fuck you, I'm out" and then reretire.

Personally i think Lance Armstrong would dig up Lincoln's corpse and skull fuck it on top of the original american flag, and then wipe his dick on the declaration of independence if it'd help his ego out a smidgen and sell a few more shitty arm bracelets.

it's either 10 or 10:30, I'll have to double check, but he has to do all of sarah's stuff and her bridesmaids and shit after us, which includes pics of her getting ready, hence the gap. we had to wait about two hours or so after our pics before scrog's wedding too. i didn't schedule it, i just show up and enjoy the open bar

Today is the rehearsal for the Douglas - Bush wedding. Rehearsal is scheduled for 4:15. I am working on the morning line odds for who is the first man to get "the look" from sarah that says this is my fucking wedding and if you do anything to screw it up I will hunt you down and kill you (the look can also be given by the mother of the bride).

even - Douglas (does it need an explanation)
Fandino - 5-2 (I'm sure he'll say something stupid...or never get his tux)
Bush - 4-1 (E-Doug is marrying his sister, enough said)
Nakijima - 5-1 (something with seducing a bridesmaid)
Burket - 10-1 (I hate weddings, but if you have your money on Dino an exacta would be a good bet because I could be guilty by association)
Dodson - 25-1 (I really have nothing)
Scroggin - 50-1 (he is gay for weddings apparently)

Cuban on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 9:06 AM

Good Call Joe. I probably would move Bush a lot lower since it's his sisters wedding and he is the most mature one in the group. Everything else is right on the money.

Cuban on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 9:07 AM

I'm betting on the Cuban/Joe Exacta, no need to box.

I'll say something stupid and Joe will throw in "inverted".

Bigworm on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 10:07 AM

Yeah I agree, last two are off limits unless you go with mommy #1 and mommy #2.

Douglas isn't going to fuck up his wedding to Sarah, because he has to live with her after that.

If Chris didn't have to round on Sunday I'd go with him slapping Sarah's ass at the reception (being caught on tape) or sitting his beer on her caboose.

joe on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 10:14 AM

The joy of rehearsals are you can fuck around jokingly and it puts the fear into the bride that someone will fuck up her wedding when you really have no intent to. That is when the monster comes out in some brides. Paul and Dave's Beckys both had dark sides that I managed to get on the wrong side of on both weddings. Actually I would pin both on the moms more, but either way it was fun.

Bigworm on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 10:18 AM

Wow, I didn't realize Paul's wife had a little crazy in her. I thought she was pretty cool...is she not or was she just obsessed with her special day?

Bigworm on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Oh oh, even better. The bride isn't suppose to actually do the rehearsal because it is considered back luck. So whoever stands in, when she makes it up to Douglas and they are standing there going through the vows make a comment like "they make a nice couple" or tell Douglas to kiss her when that part comes.

You will surely get some looks.

joe on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 2:42 PM

I've been distracted with doing math for the love of the math. Phil said the math gods will reward me with good karma. A report was sent from the southern area to us to answer a question on why there quality review percent and our quality review percent were different. They review a small number of cases and we review a lot of cases. Shit falls downhill so I ended up as the grunt worker for a supervisor who has to write a report for her supervisor who in turn will provide it to their supervisor who then gives it to Southern Area. She wanted to get me a cash reward but I get no reward because she did not gain permission from my direct supervisor to borrow me. So if it becomes known I was her math bitch then she gets in trouble for using me and I get in trouble for not doing my direct job. So she is using my work and looking like a genius and I sit back and smile.

joe on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 2:44 PM

So I haven't shaved in over a week. I got a pretty crappy beard going and I really need a haircut. The guys have to be at the church at 10:00 for pictures. The rest of the pictures are after the ceremony. How about I don't clean up for the first pictures and then get a haircut and shave after the 10:00 pictures and show up for the wedding and final pictures presentable? I think it would be hilarious.

So my trainer reviewed a file I worked. She gave me a few pargraphs that she recommended. The first said here is what I use. The 2nd and third were marked as here is a quick summary that may be better. feel free to use as much or as little as you like. I used the first paragraph and gave it back to her. She writes back "the above first paragragh is a generic statement and doesnt say anything about how we weighed the evidence. 1 & 3 are better fits. They could be used w/o paragraph 1, but should be included with or w/o the 1st."

Why the fuck give me the first paragraph and just tell me what the fuck to write the first time.

Well, ok, My paragraph is only an example.

Ok.

Now, it's up to you whether or not you want to just do the bare
minimum. Well, like Brian, for example, has 37 words in his paragraph. And a terrific opening line.

JOE
Ok. Ok, you want me to write more?

STAN
Look. Joe.

JOE
Yeah.

STAN
People can place claims anywhere, ok? They come to the southern area
for the evidence and the attitude. That's what the file is about.
It's about weighed evidence.

JOE
Ok. So, more then?

STAN
Look, we want you to express yourself, ok? If you think the bare
minimum is enough, then ok. But some people choose to write more and we encourage that, ok? You do want to express yourself, don't you?

Yeah. Yeah.

Great. Great. That's all I ask.

joe on Monday, July 13, 2009 at 8:36 AM

I rank this wedding pretty high on the comedy scale. A bunch of little things made it worth it.

-Kaeyln (the deacon indirectly mentioning her awkwardly)
-Scroggin forgetting the Maid of honor walking in
-the homily turned into an interogation
-sarah falling down the steps
-Cuban pointing a gun at Mike during the poker game Friday night
-lingirie top was drunk and aware and remembers vaguely that new years (at 4th street she was looking for a piece of ass)
-Mudshovel moshpit
-DJ didn't have lost that loving feeling so dino wanted acapella and we butchered it
-douglas tripped and almost knocked over a podium type thing
-at the rehearsal the deacon telling us to behave and Douglas' dad saying "this is them behaving"
-Douglas' mom saying "i'll be nervous until you all start drinking like you normally do"
-Douglas' dad talking to Laura about slamball (trampoline basketball)
-Amela working at the reception
-Laura, me, b-mac and intern riding 4 wide in the pickup
-Dodson may no longer be engaged is what the rumor mill was
-lingirie top had a mad lib as her toast. kind of cool...her toast beat scroggins
-and much much more

Bigworm on Monday, July 13, 2009 at 9:06 AM

Douglas' sister giving Dodson a piggy back ride into the reception was pretty funny and yet terribly impressive all at the same time. I mean she was in heels and all.

The game of which bridesmaid was the pregnant one was kind of comical.

I have to agree, Abby and I were pretty much cracking up in the church during the whole awkward homily. Kaelyn was a cutie though and I was rolling when she gave mommy #2 a hug during the wedding.

Confer with the bartenders as to whether they will pour shots. They would not pour shots so the groomsmen and Douglas did a round of Kentucky Tavern in a tall glass, on ice and drink it all really quick.

Of any place to eat in Louisville with no limit on price, where would you pick (preferably not a chain)?

Joanna on Friday, July 17, 2009 at 9:45 AM

I thought Limestone was pretty good, but Chris may disagree. The Feed Me Chef option was a lot of fun. Wasn't a huge fan of Proof on Main.

Bigworm on Friday, July 17, 2009 at 10:58 AM

The Oakroom is pretty nice, albeit you pay for it. Also, you will end up eating what I would consider to be some interesting dishes. I'd check out the menu prior to making reservations.

I thought Jack Fry's was pretty good when I went there and I have been wanting to go back to Pat's Steak House.

If you did go the chain route, I'd take in Morton's or Jeff Ruby's. Jeff Ruby's has the better atmosphere between these two.

Napa River Grill is suppose to be pretty good as well.

Phil on Friday, July 17, 2009 at 11:14 AM

what are we talking about? Just getting food? My favorite place in Louisville is Seviche. Get the sea bass or the churrascos de argentina.

but if we are talking any place to go, i'm going with 610 magnolia. never been there, but that's just because I'm not a baller.

I've been to 610 mag and it's alright, but if u want the best service, food, and ambiance, then I would shoot for le relais. Also, IMHO pats is a waste I would rather go to texas roadhouse.

Brent on Friday, July 17, 2009 at 2:03 PM

Also, I agree with Joanna, Limestone is pretty good but not better than 610 magnolia or Le Relais.

Jack Fry's
Lillys

so apparently the erin andrews videos have been on the internet for FOUR MONTHS.

I have a theory. I think the person who filmed them didn't know who the fuck erin andrews was. My guess is that some perv hotel employee saw a hot blonde check in, jacked with her door's peephole and filmed her just thinking he was getting video of a cute blonde. uploaded to hidden cam website and was done with it.
