Fantasy Football 2009

We should probably get on our asses for fantasy football again this year so we don't end up with as big of a cluster fuck as last year. I reupped the previous league. Good news, everyone!. Looks like live scoring is free this year. The other big change is that free agents can be placed on waivers until Tuesday. This prevents the first come, first served quick pick up on a Sunday while watching the game. This definitely evens things out and makes the season more fair.

Any other suggestions?

there is also, of course, the great debate whether or not we should even bother charging for this shit. that was a cluster fuck last year for sure

Phil on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 12:18 PM

here are the waiver options:

the first one is when players get put on waivers for the week.
Use these settings to give everyone in the league a fair chance at picking up players. Sunday - Tuesday means all unowned players will be placed on waivers at 10:00am PT each Sunday with the claim period ending at 11:59pm PT on Tuesday. First game of the week - Tuesday means all unowned players will be placed on waivers at the start of the first game for that week with the claim period ending at 11:59pm PT on Tuesday.

The second new option has to do with how we handle the waivers.

If waivers are enabled, all players dropped from a team's roster are immediately placed on a waiting period from zero to seven days to give all managers a chance to claim those players. Choose the waiver processing option best suited for your league.

In a normal waivers systems, waiver priority determines which manager's request is processed first.

* Continual rolling list: waiver claims are processed in waiver priority order and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list
* Reverse order of standings: waiver claims are processed in reverse order of standings and successful claims do not affect waiver priority list
* Weekly rolling list based on standings: waiver claims are processed in reverse order of standings and each successful claim moves a manager to the end of the waiver priority list

In a Free Agents Acquisition Budgets (FAAB) waivers system, each manager receives a dollar amount to place blind bids on waived players. The manager with the highest bid at the end of the waiver period claims that player and that bid amount is deducted from the team's acquisition budget. If multiple managers place an equal bid on a player, tiebreak options are available as described above.

* FAAB w/ Continual rolling list tiebreak
* FAAB w/ Reverse order of standings tiebreak
* FAAB w/ Weekly rolling standings tiebreak




Right now I have it set to place players on waivers at the first game of the season and using "Weekly rolling list based on standings" for the waiver priority. I do kinda like the Free Agents Acquisition Budgets though, but I've never used that system.

joe on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 12:22 PM

I like continual rolling.

I just reviewed my first medical evidence where Dr. Scott Kellie was the doctor. I feel funny.

Phil on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 12:28 PM

also up for debate: when the playoffs should be. right now i'm tempted to throw out week 17. i have never been in the championship game, so i have no personal opinion on this.

joe on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 12:34 PM

week 17 is a wash

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 1:05 PM

I no longer feel sorry for people in my micro class. People were complaining about struggling in class so the prof said he would do a non-mandatory live chat and will discuss anything people want so he can help them understand.

I log in and it is just me and Dr. Cronin. Awesome.

So I have spent the last 45 minutes bullshitting with my micro professor.

douglas on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 1:27 PM

continual rolling is my vote, as for championship game, it does suck when you get to the playoffs and your best players are benched for the remainder of the season, but at the same time everyone plays by the same rules and has time to prepare for it, i just accept it as part of fantasy football, so i'm good for whatever

joe on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 1:36 PM

Guy at work has created a code word for gay. When he says "ran cross country at Bellarmine" he is calling something gay.

sarah's body is completely fucked up from all the running she did, I would never recommend cross country running to anyone ever

Unless Michael Vick signs, Losman is probably the UFL's marquee player. That may sound sort of like being named the coolest guy camping out in line for Star Wars tickets, but everybody's got to find a home somewhere.

Brock on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 3:24 PM

I'm down for any of those options for FF. Should we put a little money in the pot for this season. We are finally getting old enough to afford $20-40 for some real competition. I don't care how its distributed (i.e. reg season champ, tourney champ, weekly high score), but it would be nice to add a little more incentive over bragging rights. As long as I don't have to play Joe's team in the playoffs, I should be fine.

Brock on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 3:33 PM

Speaking of getting off our asses, I need to nail down a weekend for the bachelor party. September 19th-20 or 26-27?

Is N'Awlins even an option for anyone? Most of the non-Natty Sci can make that trip, but since most of the wedding party and guests are Natty Sci, majority may rule.

Options:

1) New Orleans - Pros: We have experience with what works and doesn't work (not sure what doesn't), out-of-town road trip. Cons: Cost, distance, and hurricanes.

2) Nashville - Pros: I live here and know the area, not a long trip from 'Ville, plenty of places to party. Cons: I live here and don't want to puke on people I know.

3) Louisville - Pros: Majority lives in town (larger crowd), more access to creative activities, reduced cost. Cons: Been there, done that.

4) Chicago - Pros: Something new. Cons: Something new and untested.

fyi, chicago's a fun town but far and away the most expensive on your list. hotels ain't cheap there

douglas on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 3:43 PM

and if you're gonna travel, you can't beat vegas, plus it's cheap right now

joe on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Chris had something in mind partywise for his and Joanna's birthday in September. He is the 25th and joanna is the 18th. It sounds like whichever weekend isn't chosen there will be a party in Louisville the other.

I wouldn't mind Nashville, but that is up to you. New Orleans would be best if we flew. If you want something like a Chicago, is there anything interesting in something like a St. Louis. Just throwing around ideas.

joe on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 3:50 PM

I don't see us being a big Vegas group.

douglas on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 3:53 PM

im watching the special on the 94 49ers. They are interviewing Merton Hanks. Im incredibly disappointed in how unfreakish his neck is.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, July 23, 2009 at 1:01 AM

Brock, my vote is doing it the weekend of 9/25-27. It will be at the tail end of my vacation, so I wouldn't have any problems getting out of town for it. And if you wanted to start it early I could make that as well. The only problem would be getting back. Also I sould like to make my best effort to be home for Joanna's birthday on 9/18. I'm gay.

As for plans, new city would be cool, but New Orleans was awesome. The party bus from Louisville sounded like a fun, but dangerous idea. I don't think anyone really wants to do a bachelor party in a city where they know too many people, but that would lessen the cost. So I guess my vote for that is not Louisville and somewhere we can do a lot of barhopping without cabbing it all across a city.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 23, 2009 at 3:03 AM

At Schwarz we had a code for calling someone a fag, which was 324. We had 3 digit extensions then so it made it awesome when you would call somebody out over the loud speaker and tell them to dial 324.

That captures the essence of the atmosphere surrounding the Wynfrey Hotel today.

Demented old circus monkeys."

i was talking with lynnie about hockey tonight and he reiterated a common refrain: "but i've never really skated before". i can't emphasise the enough - my first time on ice was doing this. seriously, day one is "falling down and getting your ass back up"

anyways, i posted some really, realy shitty video from one of our wednesday games. Everyone in this video has been skating since at least January. Some for three years. A few play a lot of roller hockey. But this is like a big step up from the begineers program and it still looks like retards humping a door knob. But the crazy thing is when you are out there you are exhausted and feel like you are flying around.

Okay, since everyone is talking Weddings and Bachelor parties. Tiffany has asked to put this into your hands (She says she is the worst bride ever.) Tiffany and her Maid of Honor don't care where, but they would like to go somewhere else for the wedding.

We realize that a distant locale wedding might cause the number of people to show up to be low. But Tiffany's side will be lighter also already. Tiffany would like to go somewhere, where everyone could have fun. And it would be perfectly acceptable to be hungover at the wedding.

Possible Locales:

Vegas
Pros: Cheap packages, we don't care if it is cheesy, we have Vegas to play in.
Cons: Can be pricey. distant.

Carribean
Pros: beach or boat wedding, all-inclusive packages
Cons: Can be pricey. distant.

Cancun-like area
Pros: beach weddings, all-inclusive packages
Cons: Can be pricey. distant.

New Orleans
Pros: Her family is from Nawlins so she knows how to have fun there, but done it before. We enjoyed a great time there. More likely (in my mind) you all may show up.
Cons: She's been there done that (but would do it again) Can be pricey. distant.

Key West area:
pros:beaches and shit
Cons: Can be pricey. distant.

Open to other cool suggestions
(no Gatlinburg, Cleveland, Hershey...... maybe I can convince her into LEGOLAND! not really)

Tiffany says if you all can't make a decision, fine. Well be going out of the country (Hello Tokyo!) If anyone asked me, where is my choice in this matter, I support my woman. That is my answer, ask for another and I will attempt to punch you.

Spoke to Paul and he said he would help hook us up in St. Louis. He knows the owner of the Penthouse club and can at least get us in free. He knows a main usher at the Busch Stadium and said might be able to help[ us out there. Mentioned knowing people at the Brewery to get a tour and more then the 2 drink max. There are a group of bars there caled the landing.

Just some ideas for there.

Wrecking Crew on Saturday, July 25, 2009 at 9:17 PM

If you stay in downtown St. Louis, the landing, Busch Stadium, and plenty of blues bars are within walking distance. The Penthouse Club also sounds interesting. Like I said earlier, my vote is to get out of louisville. If we're looking to stay closer than Vegas or Nawlins, Memphis and Beale Street is another option. I don't know anything else about memphis and it may be a little further than some places, but it is different.

Tiffany on Sunday, July 26, 2009 at 8:07 AM

I'll allow a monkey fight.

Brock on Sunday, July 26, 2009 at 11:52 AM

Michelle and I were in St. Louis for X-mas and we went out at the Landing. I wasn't all that impressed. Kind of reminded me of a smaller version of 4th Street. Lots of douchebags and high-maintenance college chicks, which isn't conducive to our style of drinking and age.

Marc, for a destination wedding. I'd recommend the Carribean. The wedding packages are sweet. An alternative would be a cruise. My mom was pushing that for us, but we were stupid and decided to do something a little more traditional (and ridiculously expensive).

douglas on Sunday, July 26, 2009 at 6:36 PM

prices are super cheap for mexico right now, there were three weddings at the place we went for our honeymoon, and they were actually really pretty nice. and no i did not get any swine flu. we were originally looking to go the caribbean route, but mexico was just so much cheaper. never been on a cruise so i can't speak to that

Wes, guess who I just ran into at the hospital. Fucking Moose, Micah's friend. He's a goddamn nurse in one of the ICU's down here. How scared would you be if you had that big mother fucker as your nurse?

So I was talking with my neighbor Nancy and she told me that the police were cruising down Gloucester yesterday morning while she was taking her dog out and the cops stopped and asked her if she was the one that called the cops on the number of cars parked on the street. So in the last 2 weeks the cops have been called for cars parked on the street and barking dogs. She is calling city hall to try to investigate. A single, work from home, angry, 50 something year old woman with too much time on her hands is going to let me know if she figures out who it is and my neighbor Greg and I can execute their removal from the neighborhood.

Jay on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Michelle's sister forgot to send underwear with her daughter. So I had to go to wal-mart and buy some for her. That was one of the most awkward experiences of my life. Especially when I had to ask for help because she didn't know what size she was.

Phoenix Hill schedule:
Friday 31st - Heaven Hill
August 7th - Velcro Pygmies
August 14th - Tantric

Marcy's Playground is mixed in there somewhere.

I could go for any or all of the above 3 concerts, but that means going to phoenix hill.

joe on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 8:30 AM

91 bucks for AC/DC? That is crazy

douglas on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 8:38 AM

it is, but they're also banking on dumbasses like me that have never seen them live pay money b/c this is their first tour in like 7 years and they may not have another one

douglas on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:17 AM

a guy i work with just said they were $120 in nashville, so i guess it's a bargain

joe on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 9:27 AM

If you go to the AC/DC concert I think you should dress up like Angus.

Brock on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 10:16 AM

I only paid $65 for my AC/DC tickets in Nashville. Your buddy must have had backstage passes or something.

The concert kicked ass. It didn't hurt that my brothers and I played AC/DC Rockband and drank bourbon all day before the concert.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 10:31 AM

Chris - That's fucking awesome. Moose is a big mother fucker at 6'3" and 330 pounds. Is he still a big guy (working out wise) or did he just get fatter?

Moose is a super nice guy though, but when I first met Moose I was never more intimidated by a guy than him. His arms were fucking huge, he has the barb wire tatts and then you find out he is the nicest guy in the world. Just don't cross him.

Two things:

One, Tiff and I ran into Joe's friend Laura yesterday at the dollar movies. The funny part was while I was getting the popcorn Tiff was in line behind them, and I think they didn't didn't want to have to pay a dollar a each ($2.00 total), "making pouty faces" so Tiff offered to loan them a dollar. She ended up having to charge it. Priceless.

Two, BROCK AND JAY (and anyone else with getting married soon) I am no way ready to ship out invitations or what not, but you may be like me and the others that get weirded out when a friend calls or texts you for your address. I know some of you have already completed this invitation process and might have the same invitees. If so a list of common invitee addresses could be helpful to pass on to others so that not everyone has to constantly get the address info. Just a thought that myself and others might find convenient form those who have already or are currently working on this.

joe on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 10:57 AM

Barry was always infamous for trying to go to movies back in high school by gathering up change and paying in rolls of coins and spare change.

douglas on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 11:09 AM

i was liked theater hopping, paying for one, and then watching like 3 in a row. this was especially prevalent during the summers when there literally nothing to do all day when you're 14 or 15

joe on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 11:17 AM

There were times I did that if I felt the first movie was that bad that I needed to be reimbursed.

6. Ice Cream Sandwich. I've said this before and I'll say it again. Ice cream sandwiches are fucking tremendous, but the only bad part of eating them is when you're finished and it looks like you just went three fingers deep inside someone else's asshole. Little children are also vulnerable to the dreaded Ice Cream Sandwich Sanchez, in which the chocolate part of the sandwich gets encrusted around your mouth, giving you that freshly administered Rusty Trombone look.

I don't know Joe, if you realize it while you type it and then post it anyway, I think it makes it worse. You might as well throw on some ass chaps and march in a marriage parade.

joe on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:36 PM

If he was in denial then he would be that much further away from being cured. I think admitting his fault is a step in the right direction. He just admitted it was gay not that he accepted it. I think he can still be saved.

douglas on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:39 PM

there's only one way to be cured, and that's ditch the kids and fiance, so it comes down to being a free asshole, or a respectable gaywad. i suppose after so many years of the former, it's only natural to move towards the latter

douglas on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:39 PM

as that last post shows, i'm beyond saving

joe on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:42 PM

douglas on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:47 PM

at home, yes. i went like almost two weeks w/o one, now i'll just bum one at work on occasion. i needed to quit anyway, so it was a good excuse to give it up

joe on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:51 PM

Do we have a good excuse coming up for people to drink besides weddings and bachelor parties and before the September birthdays?

douglas on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 12:53 PM

why do you need a good one? a shitty one works for me. actually we're supposed to start the new custody this weekend, so shannon will have her all this weekend, and I'll have her all next weekend, as opposed to splitting the weekends up, which is really me having kaelyn every weekend. we'll see if shannon finds a way to fuck it up before friday night, but it's supposed to start this weekend. so i'm getting half my saturday nights back

yeah, you did. the best picture is of me and sarah posing and bmac just coming up and humping her when we weren't looking

joe on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 8:38 AM

The b-mac picture was priceless. It was a combination hump/night at the roxbury's/go to dance move and Scroggin nailed the picture.

The comments posted on the pictures are pretty good too, mostly the mosh pit picture. Scroggin saying he's never seen a wedding with a mosh pit and Burchett saying it was the best part of the wedding.

douglas on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 8:48 AM

the best part of the mosh pit were the horrified looks of everybody else still at the wedding. sarah said she had a bunch of people go up to her and ask "what are they doing" and she'd always say 'that's just what they do, i knew they were going to do it'

joe on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 9:09 AM

We are priceless.

There is a vending machine in the building I work in that has drinks, sides and entrees. The vending machine is set up where it is not all the same thing in the same number. For instance, A3 could be a turkey sandwich and directly behind it could be an egg salad sandwich or a jumbo bean burrito. We are trying to create a game called “Lunch by Fate” where it is basically a randomly generated lunch by a vending machine and we are seeing who can randomly end up with the worst possible lunch by chance. I think this may be right up there with my horrible lunch ideas as the Baconater challenge and the donut eating contest.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 11:18 AM

That's great shit. Another reason why Sarah is awesome, because she doesn't care.

joe on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 11:20 AM

I feel so honored that we have set the bar so low for what is acceptable and expected behavior for us.

douglas on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 11:25 AM

i do that on a daily basis with sarah. set the bar low, so you'll never disappoint. that way when you do a random act of kindness, like clean the kitchen, you get rewarded

Bigworm on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 11:37 AM

all this talk of growing up reminds me of this comic:

btw, for those looking to drink - the bar at iceland closed for the summer, so we've been heading up to Joe's Older than Dirt after our game (9ish). The place is bumping with people out playing corn hole. Good times.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 11:53 AM

Joe's Older Than Dirt is a good place to drink at. You can get good food and obviously good drinks. Not sure how the pricing is because I always drink on E&Y when I am there, however, I was carying around a bucket of jagerbombs one night, so you know that is always good.

joe on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 1:27 PM

Phil, that comic strip made my day.

I hae a family wedding sometime on Saturday afternoon. I could see heading up to joe's older then dirt afterwards if driving is possible. If I'm not mistaken I think it is free beer at the wedding. Might have to take advantage of that.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 1:31 PM

http://www.theonion.com/content/new..._craig_counsell

Turns Out Craig Counsell Was Actually Best Baseball Player Of Steroid Era
NEW YORK—After the records of players who used performance-enhancing drugs are carefully removed, statistics provided by the Elias Sports Bureau indicate that lifetime .255 hitter Craig Counsell was the best player of the past 15 years. "If you judge them on the basis of pure physical ability, you're left with Craig Counsell," said ESB representative Patrick Wondolowski, adding that Counsell's 35 career home runs narrowly beat out Quinton McCracken's 21 and pitcher Glendon Rusch's three. Upon hearing the news, broadcaster Bob Uecker lauded the Brewers utilityman as "one of the best I ever saw, if we're talking about those who I can say without a doubt never took steroids. He came this close to stealing a base off of Ivan Rodriguez, and I swear I heard him foul tip a Roger Clemens fastball. The kid could flat-out steroid-free play. One time he was playing third base and he caught a Rafael Palmeiro line drive—just caught it, right in his mitt." When asked about his Hall of Fame chances, Counsell dodged the question by asking if anyone had a few bucks so he could go buy a sandwich.

Adrian go to Gumer and Co., it's on Hurstbourne by Macaroni Grill. Talk to Michele Meyer and tell her you know me.

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 9:05 AM

Any one else working on a collection of save the date magnets?

Bigworm on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 9:13 AM

Yeah I have a couple.

Brock on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 9:27 AM

We gave out "Save the Date" shot glasses.

"I don't have one."

That's because you didn't rock out the cabin.

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 9:32 AM

That was a kick ass idea.

douglas on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 11:39 AM

joe, is your arm sore?

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 11:48 AM

not really. Long distance full velocity darts is brilliant.

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 12:14 PM

I need volunteers and a recommended date for all you can eat hooters wings party. I need 10 people to fill out my wing party and I am leaning towards Thursday the 13th or thursday the 20th. Any ideas?

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 12:42 PM

Right now the 10 people are:

1. Me
2. Chris
3. Our dad
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

(Laura, Joanna and my mom aren't included in the 10 because that would be a waste of all you can eat, but they will be invited)

Phil on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 12:51 PM

I'd be down, but I too would be a waste at all you can eat. I can probably only put down 25 or so

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 1:10 PM

Jerome, Dr. Scott Kellie, Douglas, Dino, Wes, Adrian, Phil?

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 1:11 PM

Brock, Brody, Jay, T-Pain?

Phil on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 1:20 PM

if we are short someone, i could recruit dominic. he'd love to try and match you dumb bastards in a quantity contest

douglas on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 1:23 PM

August 13th, I'm in

here's the best line in the article:
If word gets out that NFL players can drop weight by cutting out stuff like Patron, Alize and, for Eli Manning(notes), Zima, it could cripple the club industry.

If I recall Jerome called dibs when he called me to tell me I won. Jerome, are you allowed to go to Hooters?

Bigworm on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 3:48 PM

So the question is do we hold an empty spot for T-pain or find a brother and make him wear a wig.

douglas on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 3:52 PM

who's t-pain?

Bigworm on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 3:52 PM

rapper.

douglas on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 3:53 PM

i know the rapper, i was thinking there was someone nicknamed that or something that I didn't know about

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 3:54 PM

Just mocking the "I'm on a boat" intro where he is trying to figure out who to take on the cruise when he wins a cruise for himself and 2 friends and he chooses T-Pain over his other friend.

Bigworm on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 3:58 PM

Exactly.

douglas on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 4:04 PM

he would probably bring more bitches

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 4:08 PM

He would make it rain.

Brock on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 4:27 PM

Which date are you going with? Aug 13th?

Of course I can't make a weekday event, but I can ask Chip if he wants to saddle up. That mule can eat an entire steer if given the opportunity.

mowgli on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 4:37 PM

if you go with the 20th, I maybe of assistance.

Jay on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 5:17 PM

I'm in for either date. I can crush some hooters wings, especially if they're paid for

Dominic said he could fill in if Lynnie or T-Pain can't make it.

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 7:01 PM

When I hear from Chris I will pick the day and then I will make the final roster.

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 7:54 PM

August 13th is the tentative date. i need to call to set it up.

I don't know who Pete or T-Pain are but maybe Jerome, Dominic or Scott.

joe on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 7:54 PM

if lynnie can pull of the 13th he is Pete or T-Pain

Marc on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 8:05 PM

I'm in if there is space left.

Phil on Monday, August 03, 2009 at 11:31 PM

wow, you add marc and adrian to that group instead of pete and t-pain and you got yourself a throw down.

i'll you guys what, im gonna be useless on the all you can eat - ill join the girls table to make space for brock or lynnie if they can rearrange their schedule to make it up here

Apparently gloucester is a river again like that drunken night. I've got Laura on salvage duty while I am at work. Man the canoes!

Bigworm on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:03 AM

My father in law called me and told me to just go back home. Apparently the West end received 5+ inches of rain, massive flooding everywhere by work.

joe on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:05 AM

I'm wandering downtown louisville at lunchtime. Should be fun.

Bigworm on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:05 AM

You should go buy an inflatable raft.

joe on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:21 AM

I can take the pedway to CVS and not touch the street and then float back to work.

Bigworm on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:26 AM

Who doesn't need an inflatable raft and a six pack?

douglas on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:31 AM

i don't need one at home when the power at my office goes out

douglas on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:31 AM

joe, if you get home and gloucester is still a river, i want a call to go canoeing

Bigworm on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 11:32 AM

I still say a float trip at work would be priceless.

joe on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 12:24 PM

It barely looks like it rained downtown from what I saw

I just got a call from one of the companies next to our work building. They wanted me to analyze something for them and told me they are getting out of dodge before the next storm comes rolling through. I am definitely not going down there.

Of course, it is probably hard for the drainage system to do it's job when there is nothing but trash stuck in them.

joe on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 1:29 PM

GOD IS ANGRY!

Are you calling the West End trash?

A guy I work with is leaving for Utah and today is his last day. We were joking on him today and we were saying that God is sending a message for him to stay in Louisville by not letting him leave through flooding, but the only kind of rain that would make him stay is if it was raining men. Gay jokes are always appropriate.

Bigworm on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 2:44 PM

Certain places of the west end are pretty trashy.

douglas on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 2:47 PM

don't buses run like every 45 minutes though? so you are just getting a bus that's late, but you are none the wiser.

joe on Tuesday, August 04, 2009 at 2:53 PM

I ride an express bus that runs a different route before it switches to my rout so I catch the first of my bus so who knows where that bus could be stuck.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 11:53 AM

Good news is that I have 5 weeks left in this quarter, and then I get to relax until I learn if they are letting my retarded ass in pharmacy school or not.

I have no clue what I am going to do if I don't get in. I suspect it will initially involve several bottles of bourbon and many nights that I don't remember.

douglas on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 11:56 AM

at least there's an upside to not getting in

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 11:57 AM

Very much so.

Good times will be had by all.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 12:00 PM

Oh and I am sure the recoomendation Chris wrote me is going to get me in for sure. I am going to inquire if they have a beer or bourbon drinking team that I can help anchor.

Here is an excerpt.

"Wes is a good sumbitch and isn’t too big of a douchebag. We’ve shared many bottles of bourbon, and hopefully he has a few working brain cells left. After all isn’t it an evoulutionary process, and he has just weeded out the slow, weaker brain cells. His hard work has been demonstrated in the piles of beer cans that have been amassed in a night of drinking and his dedication can be seen in never letting a handle of bourbon go unfinished as well as his ability to puke and rally. His keen intellect can be reflected in his ability to recite the stats of any incoming recruit to the University of Kentucky and this will make him quite an asset to the underserved red neck areas of the state. He will likely even demonstrate his loyalty as he risks his own license to give steroid prescriptions to his beloved Cats in hopes for one more win. He also has had an intimate knowledge of the pharmaceutical field considering the number of antibiotics he has needed after his many conquests, if you know what I mean. They don’t call him “the Big Worm” for nothing. Wes has finally settled down and started a family, and while this may make him a more stable pharmacist, he has become quite gay. Wes will strive to complete his training as he looks to use his new found doctorate as a means to become less gay. How many bitches could he pick up with the title of doctor? He could once again become the man and the legend.

If I can be of any further assistance, or provide you with any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me, but only if you can offer me lots of money or booze."

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 12:01 PM

I just hope he doesn't print out the wrong one to send in.

joe on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 12:29 PM

If you don't get in I say that you were too good for Sullivan.

So what is the September plan? In a month it is a 3 day weekend for labor day. My birthday is a month and a week away. I have a Saturday birthday. The following Friday is Joanna's 30th birthday and the Friday after that is Chris' 30th bday. I believe that Brock mentioned his bachelor party was also the weekend of Chris' b-day. Are we just going to stay drunk the entire month of September? I think we should embrace an awesome month like this one coming up. Anybody want to join in the debauchery?

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 2:14 PM

Debauchery or douchebaggery?

There is a huge difference and if we aren't careful it could go either way.

joe on Wednesday, August 05, 2009 at 2:20 PM

The douchebaggery in September is your wedding anniversary.

His birthday is around Thanksgiving because it was always a birthday/thanksgiving keg at the house.

The september of his wedding started with my 21st birthday which was followed by his bachelor party which was followed by his wedding if I am not mistaken which is close to the same day as chris' birthday. I just remember being drunk a lot that september.

I finally watched it last night and have to say that movie is pretty funny. I thought it was better than Superbad.

it's good, but it's not as good as superbad by any means

douglas on Thursday, August 06, 2009 at 10:45 AM

i don't know if anyone likes british comedies, but i watched death at a funeral again the other day and that movie's great. a midget high on acid ends up unconscious and tied up in a coffin with his dead elderly gay lover. good times

Bigworm on Thursday, August 06, 2009 at 11:32 AM

Well I haven't seen Superbad in a while so maybe I'll watch it again, but at times the fat kid Seth just pisses me off in that movie.

I don't think either movie is as good as Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

douglas on Thursday, August 06, 2009 at 11:38 AM

that's a good one too, but none of them touch the hangover, if you haven't seen that yet

Bigworm on Thursday, August 06, 2009 at 11:39 AM

I have not. Abby and I are kid free this weekend, we talked about seeing that if it is still in theaters.

Guy sitting beside me at work is super quiet. I've sat next to him for a little over a month and never spoken to him. I randomly overheard him talking about the Boston Red Sox to some other guy so I started talking to him. Turns out he was going to walk on the baseball team at Bellarmine. He said he didn't because of Wiegandt. He said everything I could possibly want to hear. He called him an arrogant ass that didn't know what he was doing and that all the people from Holy Cross were a waste of space. I laughed and then told him that I played 4 years at Bellarmine under Wiegandt and that everything he said was true.

Bellarmine seriously could have blown up when Doug forgot to turn off the acetylene tank on the AA. In fact, I don't know how it didn't blow up.

Is anybody doing this tomorrow?

Volunteers,



Thanks again for agreeing to give of your time tomorrow morning for our Young Alumni Service Project. We look forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning beginning at 8:30 a.m. Once again, the home is located at 1036 Tennessee Avenue. Here are directions to the home from Bellarmine.



· From Bellarmine head towards Eastern Parkway

· Take a LEFT onto Eastern Parkway

· Keep going straight until you run into a dead end near U of L, take a LEFT onto 3rd Street

· You’re going to go under a small bridge. At the next intersection you will want to take a RIGHT onto Winkler (there is a Moby Dick across the street)

· You’re almost there! Winkler will then turn into Taylor, continue going straight

· Head down Taylor and then take a RIGHT onto Tennessee Avenue. The home is on the LEFT.



We were able to pick up many supplies at the Repair Affair Headquarters yesterday afternoon. You are welcome to bring some of your own tools but we should be ok. Simply remember to wear comfortable clothing, sturdy shoes, and sunscreen. Snacks and water will be provided.

Also, don’t forget that in the evening we are hosting a Young Alumni Party at Molly Malone’s beginning at 8:00p.m. All volunteers will receive additional drink specials in celebration of a hard day’s work.

joe on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 10:15 AM

I'd be down for Molly's

Brent on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 10:28 AM

Im down for Molly's.

Brock on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 10:40 AM

Get your friends together and come out to the Bellarmine Young Alumni Party on Saturday night at Molly Malone's (upstairs area rented out).

8pm - 10pm: $1 beer and free pizza for Bellarmine Young Alumni and your guests in the upstairs area at Molly Malone's

10pm - ???: Hang out at Molly's or venture out with your crew to other favorite locations on Bardstown Rd.

Just come to Molly Malone's anytime after 8pm. The upstairs area is reserved from 8pm - 10pm for Bellarmine Young Alumni (graduates from 1999-2009) and your guests. Enjoy a fun night on Bardstown Rd. with all your friends from Bellarmine. See you there!

douglas on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 10:59 AM

So I went to the world's largest White Castle for lunch today and the woman working the cash register said I am the smartest person to ever come into that White Castle because it was the quickest anyone has ever run their credit card because you swipe your own. She said every other person that uses a credit card there needs to be instructed to do everything. I felt special and at the same time very ashamed.

Phil on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 1:44 PM

i like rolling up to the u-scan checkout at target when all the other stations are already full and trying to beat everyone to the check out. once I had a full basket of stuff, stood there and waited my turn for two minutes and still beat the other three fuckers.

i felt like doing the lights out dance.

Cuban on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 1:57 PM

Not sure how much interest you all have but a group of us are going Whitewater rafting in West Virginia the weekend of Sept. 18-20. If you are interested let me know.

The cost will be about $260 per person for rafting and lodging.

joe on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 2:06 PM

I did U-Scan at Kroger Wednesday evening and spent well over $100 and apparently you can only use the skip bagging button up to 4 times. we ran out of room to pile groceries on the bagging area so we switched to skip bagging and the woman yelled at us. They then told us that when they remodel the hubbards one coming up that the self bagging areas will be bigger with the spinning bagging areas.

joe on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 2:08 PM

Chris, what is the 30th birthday plan for Joanna and you?

joe on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 2:12 PM

I went to call about the Hooter's wings party but apparently the certificate says you can only call to set it up monday thru thursday between 2 pm and 4 pm. Hooters is fucking retarded.

douglas on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 2:15 PM

no wonder they give those out, no one can do it then

Phil on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 2:18 PM

$100 at uscan? god damn.

my current uscan strategy:
1) begin scanning immediately. fuck pressing start to begin.
2) don't bother with the kroger plus card until the end either. i have the card in my wallet so i swipe it right before i swipe my card.
3) keep it under $50 to avoid signing the credit card slip
4) keep an eye on the attendant and scan your beer when you can easily catch them
5) if you murder people that use checks or too many vegatables in the parking lot you won't have to deal with them at a later date

follow those five simple rules and you to can back-to-back-to-back uscan national champions.

joe on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 2:51 PM

Is that how Fred McGriff and Tom Emanski do it?

The problem was I went and there was 1 regular lane open that was 10 deep so I said fuck it I am uscanning it. We violated every possible uscan rule including skip bag, beer id, produce, coupons and more.

Bigworm on Friday, August 07, 2009 at 3:11 PM

Joe - Let me know when you do it, I'll take off from work to eat some wings.

correct, eating is between 5 and 7, I just need to call between 2 and 4 on monday.

Bigworm on Saturday, August 08, 2009 at 4:03 PM

I'll throw down a few drinks.

Oh and the more and more I see John Wall play, the more I realize he is probably the #1 draft pick in the 2010 NBA Draft...which would be the first time a UK player is #1 draft pick.

This happened last night, the first player Wall jukes is a UNC signee and then he comes down the lane and dunks on Jerry Stackhouse. This kid is sick.

Works for me.

Brock on Saturday, August 08, 2009 at 6:32 PM

Wes, you may want to check out Lance Stephenson before proclaiming Wall the #1 pick.

Brock on Sunday, August 09, 2009 at 2:29 AM

I need a vote on Nashville vs. New Orleans.

Bigworm on Sunday, August 09, 2009 at 10:36 AM

Brock - I am well aware of Stephenson, but I am going by what the NBA 2010 draft dorks are saying.

Stephenson is a heck of a talent. UK had a top 10 talent begging to come to UK for next year, but Cal described this kid as a "taker" and he wants "givers". Read into that what you want, but from the boards the kid was Stephenson.

Marc on Sunday, August 09, 2009 at 11:17 AM

Brock, whatever you choose i'm there for you. New Orleans or Nashville.

Phil on Sunday, August 09, 2009 at 3:36 PM

i like the nashville idea. we've done new orleans plus nashville would be a bunch cheaper and more people could make it

Bigworm on Sunday, August 09, 2009 at 8:17 PM

Philco - I know you are watching the game.

Titans fake a punt and the punter runs 40 yards for the TD.

Bigworm on Sunday, August 09, 2009 at 11:37 PM

Dog sleepwalking, gets good at the end.

http://www.break.com/usercontent/20...ail-945093.html

Phil on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 2:41 AM

that fake punt is suspect. here's the problem - suddenly because the punter goes into his kicking motion he's untouchable according to the nfl rules. so he has three dudes coming at him unmolested and he just acts like he's kicking. what can those three dudes do? knowing that the dude could act like he's gonna run do they just stand there and wait for him to finish his kicking motion and start running?

so the question now because a question of punter protection. i think that play will result in some weird rule about a person going into a kicking motion being unable to advance the ball after that action.

Brent on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 7:32 AM

So the punter balked.

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:11 AM

Phil - You do bring up a good point. It was still a badass play especially watching some punter (not the best athlete) haul ass for 40 yards.

I wonder if teams will attack the punter at the first chance they get if he fakes it like that in regular season. Chances are they don't have another punter on the roster so you should win the position game at this point.

I think the other thing that sold the play was the guy in motion, I think by design they were to release the attackers so that puts three guys out of the play and then you are blocking 8 on 10 there out.

joe on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:22 AM

I can't remember who it was for, but I think it was a college team who had a punter who is an MMA fighter. I like a good kicker who can kick some ass when need be.

joe on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:24 AM

Google linked me to Pitt Punter and MMA Fighter Dave Brytus.

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:28 AM

Yeah the Pitt guy was an MMA fighter.

UK's ex-punter Glenn Pakulak could rock some people. In college he was about 230 pounds, his father is an ex-hockey player (I believe). He was a converted middle linebacker to punter and after punting would run down the field and try to make plays.

And I have to say this is a nice hit by the punter.

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:31 AM

joe on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:41 AM

A UL kicker went on to play rugby or aussie football, maybe Nate Smith. Ron Cooper or John L. gave him plenty of practice with the trickery of the rugby style punt. What a horrible idea.

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 9:56 AM

The funny thing is with the ruby style punt, when you have somebody on your team that is good with it, the announcers act like it is the most feared weapon in college football.

joe on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 10:20 AM

the only thing more effective is the 3rd down quick kick.

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 11:20 AM

I've been waiting to see a first down quick kick. Have to keep the defense honest!

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 12:05 PM

I admit I hate hockey, but they have to be some of the most badass professional sports players on the planet.

Phil on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 12:17 PM

For what it's worth, Brian Moorman, the Bills punter, is one of the best overall athletes in the NFL. He's not allowed back into the pro bowl skills game because he had such a better arm than everyone else competing in the skills comp (against running backs, wr and corners), plus he was right with there there in speed and agility.

He barely missed making the finals in the fastest man competition in another year.

He also almost got killed.

joe on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 12:23 PM

Is he the one lit up on the fake punt?

Bigworm on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 12:23 PM

Phil - do you know if any local boys played in the game last night?

I know Stevie Johnson is hurt for the Bills right now, did you see Eric Wood play at all? I think there is another KY boy trying to make the defense for the bills, Jenkins?

Little plays for Tennessee, but didn't see him in the game.

Rivals has preseason HS football up. Trinity's starting QB is Kragthorpe's son. Interesting note, St. X is #39 and Trinity is like 67 nationally. Brock might care. I found it humorous that Rivals discussed in each teams summary that it comes down to who wins in the end between St. X and Trinity and they put St. X 30 spots higher despite Trinity winning something like 6 of the last 7 state titles (Brock would have the exact figures).

Responding to an earlier post (way earlier.) Joanna and I are planning on celebrating our 30th birthdays with a Bambi Walk. It will either be on 9/18 or 9/19. The 18th is a Friday and may be a little harder to accomplish since we won't be able to start too terribly early. Saturday the 19th is the UL/UK football game which may make for a super long day of drinking if we do it after the game. Final details will come later.

Speaking of details, Brock, what's going on with the bachelor party?

joe on Tuesday, August 11, 2009 at 7:43 PM

Brock, it is the Dupont Hooter's. He can be number 10 if Brody doesn't want it. I just don't want 11 people to show up.

Joe, give me a heads up tomorrow if you need Chip and I'll let him know. My money is he might be able to out-eat any of the current 9.

Chris, the only detail is that we're doing the event on the 25th-27th of September. I'd like to take the Friday off. N'Awlins sound nice, but apparently that's an issue for a number of people. Based on the previous N'Awlins adventure, what do you think is the fewest attendees to make it worthwhile. IMO if I'm there, its enough!

Otherwise, its Nashville.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:11 AM

Rick is great friends with the owner of Porcini's, hence why he is there often.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:13 AM

Barry - Trust me us UK fans are praying he falls in our laps. The thinking being that the opportunity to play against LSU while at UK could be a big motivational factor. I think if UK gets to 8 or 9 wins this year we could have a big recruiting class, no where near LSU big but probably top 30 again, which is great for us.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:20 AM

A comment on the Pitino/Sypher saga.

“Adultery and paying for mistress’s abortion…Billy Clyde you have been check raised my friend.”

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:21 AM

that's great

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:28 AM

There is a difference between winning and screwing up in your personal life and being a drunk and losing.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:33 AM

Joe - being a loser is the big "L", therefore it is a state function. Since it is a state function, the pathway it takes to be tabulated a Loser is irrelevant.

So I guess the question is does Ricky P take a leave of absence? Like I said before, I pesonally think this is why Ralph Willard was brought on so if he did take a leave he had a guy that knew how to run a program at the reigns or if he decided to resign he wouldn't leave the program in shambles.

Now for the predictions. I bet Rick Pitino gets two technicals in the game before the UK game so he can't coach against UK in Rupp. I just don't see Rick being able to take 26,000 fans chanting Kar-en Sy-pher all game long.

And how is he going to handle the Big East fans?

I don't think he coaches a lot of games this year.

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:42 AM

UK-UL will be fun indeed. at least now it's clear why Richard left for florida, so he wouldn't be stuck in an awkward position of supposedly being pissed at his dad and defending his boss, of course it's no surprise. what i find funny is people saying how bad they feel for his wife and kids, when he has been estranged from his wife for years. Money is the only reason they're still married on paper

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:45 AM

My point had nothing to do with Pitino losing off the court. BAsically it was that Billy G has nothing to do with this. Billy G is gone for not winning basketball games. AS long as you win basketball games there is a nice double standard where they will make excuses to keep you where if you are not winning as much on the court they will create excuses to get rid of you.

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:45 AM

you know this ain't the whole story though, the big question is still why tim sypher married this crazy bitch six months after his boss boinked her and paid for her abortion

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:46 AM

you're right joe, and if UL sucks this year, the heat will be on big time for pitino, but if they have a good year, the whole thing blows over

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:50 AM

exactly. 2 negatives don't make a positive in this case.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:52 AM

Joe - I am just saying it doesn't matter if you booze it up and are a loser or screw up your personal life and are a loser. Bottom line you are a loser and it doesn't matter how you go there.

Why did Tim marry her? Easier for her to receive "payments" or get the benefits that Pitino "owed" her.

Personally, I think Pitino was emotionally involved with her and he probably promised her things or talked about leaving his wife for her and he never did. There is no way a woman takes this case against Pitino unless she is a woman scorned. I think she realizes there is no way she can win, and I am convinced she doesn't care to win. Her goal is to take his reputation from him, as that is his most prized posession. She will destroy his name and she will go to prison for doing so, and she will be happy with that.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:55 AM

What does she have to lose, nothing. What does he have to lose, everything.

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:58 AM

Both Billy and Rick are losers off the court. That is well established. The on the court differences are what have saved Rick. Was Vince Lombardi and Bear Bryant respected for their personality and character off the field? They won games and as a coach that is all that matters. Once you start losing games these "flaws" off the field/court come up and are used against you.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:59 AM

Oh I agree, but that doesn't mean you aren't a "loser". You just happen to win games while being a loser.

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10:59 AM

Has he technically done anything illegal or just immoral?

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:00 AM

so we are pretty much saying the same thing.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:02 AM

Yes we are saying the same thing.

He hasn't done anything illegal, unless he raped her.

Like I said, i don't see how she can prove he raped her and I don't think it matters at this point. She is going down in flames and she is trying to take him with her. She is set out to destroy his reputation and that is it.

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:02 AM

I am by no means defending him at all. I'm just saying he will keep his job.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:03 AM

Oh UofL won't fire him. If he leaves, he resigns, but he is too stubborn to do that.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:03 AM

Anyone actually thinks he shows up to Rupp this year?

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:09 AM

He's lived with her around since 2003, I think he will be fine.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:14 AM

Yeah he lived with her around since 2003, but it wasn't public since 2003. Image is huge in his world.

Like I said, i don't think he will leave and I hope he takes it like a man in visiting arenas, but I just have a hard time believing he can and will.

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:23 AM

he's gonna have to get "sick" or something before the UK game, or else it will be brutal, just bad, like super bad. i'll be the first to give him props if he takes it like a man though and shows up. like i said though, there's got to be another shoe to drop on this, it ain't over. the kicker will be if someone reporter grows some a nutsack and does some kind of investigative report on his personal life in general, although i don't see that happening, even though it's almost public knowledge he's a scumbag. i think if he starts losing it'll be more likely

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:24 AM

I am thinking about right now he is thinking why didn't I just give her the $10M she wanted.

Here is the other kicker, he said he would defend his family. Makes me wonder if something involved his boy Richard?

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:36 AM

Pitino's contract does have a morality clause in it. Could be interesting.

http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...morality+clause

Brent on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 11:51 AM

I think not showing up for a game is a bit dramatic. He is Rick Pitino, the person who took UK to the promise land. Nobody gives a damn that he banged this chic in a bathroom while giving her a swirly. It will be business as usual, just this year...hopefully, UK will be back on top dominating.

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 12:26 PM

If he had a dollar for every time he cheated on his wife, just think how many $3,000 abortions he could have had.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 12:30 PM

If he shows up he better take the Karen Sypher chants like a man.

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 12:38 PM

The only way he won't be there is if he takes a leave of absense for the entire season which I don't see happening.

joe on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 12:38 PM

I don't know where all this "if" came from anyways.

Barry on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 12:44 PM

wes - benton was a verbal commit in 2007 from bastrop, la (4* wr). he did not make his grades and recommitted in 08 did not make his grades again. randall was the #1 receiver in the country last year also from bastrop. the two played together, are very similar in stature and likely would have cometed for the same position. we were very focused on randall and banking benton would not qualify again. benton opened his recruitment with offers from us and auburn. 2 days before nsd, randall's dad was on the local radio and when asked about lsu said "well there's a depth issue at lsu." randall did not think he and benton should be on the same team because one of them would not play and they are both great players /friends. so the day before nsd, les pulled benton's offer. benton signed with auburn-we got randall. probably the right move, but sketchy.

i don't really know what the hell happened with pratt. he was a 4* athlete that committed in the 09 class. he graduated early and was on campus in january. something went wrong with the clearinghouse stuff (this is where its fuzzy), so he backed out and committed to oklahoma state. don't know what happened, just know his family is pissed off.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 1:08 PM

Very interesting stuff. Can the Big 12 take partial qualifiers?

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 1:35 PM

just got back from gym, espn is speculating on whether or not he'll take a leave, what was interesting was they had andy katz talking about it, not pat forde. apparently there's going to be a press conference this afternoon

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 1:38 PM

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 3:16 PM

From Matt Jone's blog...

In the mean time, Pitino’s attorney says that the money given was “for health insurance” and “not explicitly for an abortion.” That is called backtracking ladies and gentlemen.

douglas on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 3:17 PM

terry meiners just had the most awkward intro to his show i've ever heard in my life trying to talk about, but not talk about the rick pitino thing. he started off talking about how he's a friend first, then a talk show host, but he wasn't going to ignore it, that he's had conversations in the past, but he's not going to talk about them, and proceeded to ramble on about how it's a bad situation for all involved, but wouldn't give any details. very high on the unintentional comedy scale as you could hear the beads of sweat dripping off his forehead

joe on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 10:45 AM

Yeah but it's a good hypothetical. Ramsey doesn't look to be pretty happy.

joe on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:01 AM

I think Ramsey is more upset over the flood damage

Bigworm on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:09 AM

I disagree. Flood damage is an act of God and is out of man's control. Pitino made choices to pay for an abortion. Morality issues are not good for universities that are suppose to educate and shape the mind's of youths. The issue isn't the affair it is paying for an abortion. And if you think he gave her $3000 to buy medical insurance I have some shit in my basement I want to sell you.

Here's the thing, as things get investigated deeper....more and more will come out. Pitino should offer to pay her off to shut her up ASAP.

Bigworm on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:11 AM

Honestly, I don't care about this situation. We all know how UofL is going to handle it, it's a non-issue to Jurich. The only one who can fire him will be Ramsey and in order to do that he will have to fire Jurich as well.

And for him to decide that, he will have to decide if the money that UofL basketball brings into the university is enough for him to turn his back.

joe on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:13 AM

PIT made the point that he is fine. It may hurt recruiting but in the long run he is not the one on trial. He will be the issue until the next time Josh Hamilton falls off the wagon or Vick dog fights and then we will all forget about him.

Bigworm on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:15 AM

Erik Kuselias on Mike & Mike this morning said something to the effect of he is lucky he is Rick Pitino and at the University of Louisville. If he were at Notre Dame for example, he would already be fired.

Bigworm on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:17 AM

The fans won't forget though, he will have a nice rude awakening on the road this year.

I won't be surprised if the opposition has "Baby Adoption Day" when Rick Pitino and UofL come to town.

Also, now Rick Pitino can capitalize on this by speaking from experience and speaking out about abortions and being pro-life after this incident. I can already see the millions of dollars flowing into Central Bank.

If he was at ND and winning I would question the firing. Punished to a degree, yes.

douglas on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:27 AM

Did you even read the article Wes? It is Cardinals for Life, a group of students. I don't call that a legitimate anti abortion group. Hell, I bet 2 of my cousins that go to UL are part of it. Basically they protest and say the rosary in front of clinics and were right to life shirts.

Of course I read it, it just takes one to get the ball rolling Joe.

joe on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 10:39 AM

Here is their view on the issue: Abortion is murder and because he did wrong god will punish him. So if god wants him fired he will fire him. It isn't up to Ramsey or Jurich it is up to the big G-O-D.

Bigworm on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 10:40 AM

And like I said the ball is rolling, outlets are reporting the abortion group want him out so it is just a matter of time before other anti-abortion groups get involved. Also, apparently this is huge news, in the rest of the country so it will be really interesting how UofL handles all the negative publicity.

Personally, I think he will be gone but that is just me.

I don't care if he gets fired or not. I am just saying it is getting out there and when people start fussing about it that is when it becomes a big deal and really puts UofL in the spotlight.

joe on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 10:58 AM

Someone will make a donation to a charity and everything will be ok. If Pitino really had an issue with anything his mafia connections would have taken care of it.

Besides, I wouldn't want Louisville to be represented as the city where all the guys try to get the girl to drink as much tequila as possible on a Thursday night, and then get dry humped.

I just have too much civic pride to sign up, even if I was attractive enough to get on that show

pitino will not be removed. get over it. national right to life, the gop, and the pope himself denouncing his actions will not get him fired as long as he wins. most people are not upset about the abortion, but the infidelity. don't forget he works at a university, no one there cares he paid for an abortion.

Jay on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 2:08 PM

He went about it wrong. He should just have told her to get a shmasmortion at the shmasmortion clinic. That would have given him plausible deniablility

joe on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 2:14 PM

have the kid, let a dog attack it and then run over both drunkenly with a car and be found with pot in your possession.

Phil on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 2:19 PM

Dom gives two thumbs up to the performers of the wing challenge. He's our resident competitive eating champ.

I think Chris' numbers are something to grow upon. The wing bowl in Philly is two 14 minute periods, and a final two minute period. Here are last years results:

Jon “Super” Squibb - 203 wings - his facebook page
Not Rich 180
Hank the Tank 153
Da Disposal 153
Cadillac Corrigan 132

Other 5 semi-finalists (results are from end of first round)
Officer Beast 90
Frank de Fraud 87
Stormin Norman 83
Obi Wing 83 (disqualified for vomiting in the second round)
Gluteus Maximus 79

I think, with training, Chris can make the top 10

joe on Friday, August 14, 2009 at 2:25 PM

Chris' performance was hindered by finishing 50 and having to wait for the next 50. Plus he didn't prepare because he was a 4:00 call joe and see if there is a spot open so he had a legitimate lunch I think from a drug rep.

Is it sad when a charity softball tournament that revolved around beer turns into an arguement about making a team forfeit for not having enough girls on their team?

Cheryl on Sunday, August 16, 2009 at 6:26 PM

Is anyone interested in a camping trip Labor Day weekend?

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 9:58 AM

This place is dead. Anything exciting go on this weekend? All day softball tournaments and beer don't mix well. I think I was already hungover by the end of the tournament. I kept drinking but it was immediatly sweating out of me.

Jay on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 10:15 AM

Cheryl-maybe.

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 10:20 AM

FYI, if you drop an MP-3 player in a glass of ice water it ends up getting really hot and the buttons quit working and then it all together quits working.

Bigworm on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 11:05 AM

To me it sounds like there was enough bitching going on in that softball game so there were plenty of girls on the field.

so my AC busts yesterday and i spent last night sleeping in a house at 85 degrees. spent all morning waiting for the fucking AC guy to show up, finally shows up, does 5 minutes of work, and says that'll be 265 dollars

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 2:25 PM

Refilled the freon?

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 2:26 PM

That is why you kiss ass with the neighbors and drink beer with them and grill out with them and set off fireworks with them and let them park their Mercedes in your garage. Greg is the man.

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 2:36 PM

and keg stands and jello shots and tequila shots

douglas on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 2:40 PM

no, wasn't the freon, they had to replace a part, the fabricator maybe, it wasn't the motor. he said the freon was fine, it just really sucked last night trying to fall asleep. i had every fan in the house on, brought up another fan in the basement and put it in my room, and had to sleep with no covers, which sucks. he said it should be back to normal by the time i get home

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 2:52 PM

That blows

douglas on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 2:53 PM

of course what sucks more is that sarah found out her boss's brother does HVAC work and could've looked at it for free, but i didn't have the luxury of waiting around to find someone to do it for cheap, i needed it done before tonight or else we were hotel-ing it

Bigworm on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 3:05 PM

Jesus Christ the heat is one thing but couldn't imagine doing that with the humidity the way it was last night.

Jay and Brock - Where are the wedding dates and when are the bachelor parties????

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 3:09 PM

being a homeowner sucks.

douglas on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 3:13 PM

the humidity wasn't too bad b/c the furnace motor was still working so there was air blowing through the house. although i was quite happy the stupid AC chose like the hottest weekend of the year to blow

Bigworm on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 3:15 PM

Yeah that sucks.

Similar shit happened to Abby and I. Last summer when it was basically the same temperature/humidity as last night we lost power so I sent Abby and AJ to her parents while I stayed at the house.

Another time we were low on freon and the AC froze up.

And after that one the AC froze up again because it wasn't getting enough return air. The filter was completely blocked from sanding the stupid drywall when we built out basement.

Fun times.

joe on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 3:31 PM

I think you intentionally shut off the power and told Abby and AJ to leave and sat around drinkin cold beer by yourself

Brock on Monday, August 17, 2009 at 4:57 PM

I second Joe's logic.

Wedding is 10/10/09

Bachelor Party is the weekend of 9/25

Cantwell went from hero to goat in the Monday Night game last night. TD pass and 2 pt conversion to tie the game up with 57 seconds left and then comes back after a 3 and out and fumbles that was returned for a TD.

So the 19th of September is the UL - UK game at noon. Chris mentioned a birthday Bambi walk that weekend. What sounds worse, friday bambi walk then hungover for the game or drink during the game and then bambi walk after the game?

Anybody want to sit around and watch football and drink beer on the 12th of September for my birthday?

Get drunk Labor day weekend the 5th, because I can, get drunk my birthday weekend the 12th, get drunk joanna's birthday weekend the 18th with the bambi walk, get drunk chris' birthday weekend the 25th with the bachelor party. I love September!

joe on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 11:25 AM

Strasburg signed with the Nationals:

Washington got it done, agreeing with Strasburg on a record-breaking contract worth about $15 million over four years. The struggling team and the hard-throwing right-hander resolved everything at “11:58 and 43 seconds,” Nationals president Stan Kasten said.

“People thought it would take to the last minute,” Kasten said, smiling. “We didn’t even need that last minute.”

The deal is worth roughly 50 percent more than the previous highest guaranteed deal for a player in baseball’s amateur draft, the $10.5 million pitcher Mark Prior(notes) got from the Chicago Cubs in 2001.

douglas on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 11:34 AM

douglas on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 11:46 AM

Phil, you've got competition...

(630): I sat a few seats down and one row behind a cute girl at the Cubs game today. Having watched her talk to the guy next to her, I found out only her name and age. I then used that information and pieced it together with over 500 girls on Facebook with the same name. I found the same girl, and we're now fbook friends.
(1-630): if being a creepy fuck was an olympic sport, they'd think you were using performance enhancing drugs...

Phil on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 11:56 AM

you know, there was a kinda cute girl in front of me at kroger at the uscan. Enough to stare at while waiting at target, but that's it. Well, she left in a hurry and didn't take her receipt.

So after I checked out I grabbed her receipt too because it was attached to mine just to see if I could figure out who she was based on her kroger plus card. Just for practice - she definitely wasn't stalker worthy, but when the time comes it's nice to have that tool in the arsenal, ya know?

Well, the official ruling is that kroger plus cards do a good enough job protecting your name. But I do have a suspicion that she still lives at home because according to her card it says that she's saved over $4000 at kroger this year.

not good news for wellemeyer, the cardinals are signing john smoltz:

http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/sp...C5?OpenDocument

The Cardinals also have groped for consistency from their No. 5 starter this season largely because of Todd Wellemeyer's erratic mechanics.

Entering Tuesday night's start, fifth-starter candidates Wellemeyer, Brad Thompson, P.J. Walters and Mitchell Boggs carried a combined 10-15 record and 5.45 ERA and had allowed 320 baserunners in 188 1/3 innings. Wellemeyer was a 13-game winner in 2008 but lost his starting role last month before landing on the disabled list Aug. 11 with elbow inflammation.

how exactly is a gender verification test a long and arduous process? pull down your pants, any stitches where your dick used to be, okay, we're done. you need a psychologist, endocrinologist, and an expert on gender to determine if a dude had his dick cut off? really? and how do you become an expert on gender, I think i learned everything I needed to know in preschool. boys have a penis, girls have a vagina. so am i an expert?

joe on Thursday, August 20, 2009 at 12:57 PM

these made me chuckle. E-Doug, this came from schum to another guy in my office to me. I don't know how he knows Schum.

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

That's enough, Nickelback.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work?
You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

There is a great need for sarcasm font.

Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what was going on when I first saw it.

I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond

earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.

The other night I hit a new low at an open bar. I had already hopped on highway blackout when, inevitably I had to find a bathroom. Eventually I decided it was probably on the other side of the bar so I tried to walk over there, but ran into a guy coming the other way. We played that, Both go left, Both go right game to no avail, so I finally put out my hand to guide myself past and that’s is when I realized, yup, that’s a mirror I just tried to walk through. And the guy on the other side is me. Even cats can re cognize their own image.

How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.

joe on Thursday, August 20, 2009 at 12:57 PM

A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

Was learning cursive really necessary?

Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.

Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in' examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"

What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

I would like to officially coin the phrase 'catching the swine flu' to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an overweight woman. Example: "Dave caught the swine flu last night."

I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

Bad decisions make good stories

If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.

Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous?

Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem...

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren’t doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

joe on Thursday, August 20, 2009 at 12:58 PM

I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV.
There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren’t watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'

While watching the Olympics, I find myself cheering equally for China and USA. No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that when Chinese athletes don’t win, they are executed.

I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail.

What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles...

As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

I think that if, years down the road when I’m trying to have a kid, I find out that I’m sterile, most of my disappointment will stem from the fact that I was not aware of my condition in college.

Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I’d bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?

It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and the link takes me to a video instead of text.

I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimate d that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There’s nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard before dinner.

Tentative Bachelor Party Plan:

Memphis - Thanks to Chris' excellent brainstorming and they apparently have a vacancy in the Final Four we could use.

Hotel prices are good, distance is manageable, plenty of alcoholic establishments, and places to get murdered (as long as I don't die on the bathroom floor with my pants around my ankles like Elvis).

Plan is to have folks from Cincy and Louisville meet down in Nashville throughout Thursday and then carpool down to Memphis either late that night or early Friday. Drive back on Sunday.

After the Calipari news yesterday, sitting at home and watching Blue Chips on HDnet movies just feels right.

Brock on Friday, August 21, 2009 at 12:15 PM

No, I have the say. The guys from Cincy jumped on board immediately (probably because Cincy is scarier than Memphis) and people in Nashville don't mind.

If you want to get elitist about where you get hammered and make a fool of yourself, then you probably aren't qualified to make up a good bachelor party.

I typically take the advice of a FEMALE for a bachelor party with a grain of salt.

Besides, it would be completely new terrain for Chris to puke on.

joe on Friday, August 21, 2009 at 12:19 PM

If people want to go to Nashville, Brock is always there and you can go see him in Nashville any weekend.

Phil on Friday, August 21, 2009 at 2:21 PM

now that i think about it think she wanted me in nashville for booty related purposes. memphis it is!

Brock on Friday, August 21, 2009 at 2:41 PM

Well said Joe. I even have a fully stocked bar in my living room.

Bigworm on Friday, August 21, 2009 at 4:03 PM

Memphis would be fun, very much New Orleansesque. My mom goes to Memphis annually for work and they go out drinking and stay out till about midnight or so. she hasn't been mugged or shot yet, therefore, if a couple middleaged women can survive Memphis, I am sure a group of 20-30 year old men could as well.

adrian on Saturday, August 22, 2009 at 10:17 AM

Brock what day is you bachelor party? Need to make sure I am not on call.

Phil on Saturday, August 22, 2009 at 2:20 PM

joe got trapped in like an applesbees in danville because of the prison riots. im sure he'll have updates soon

Brock on Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 11:25 AM

The bachelor party is planned for the weekend of September 25th. The tentative plan is to have most people meet up on Thursday night in Nashville and we drive down either late Thursday or Friday AM depending on the headcount. Return on Sunday.

Just like Chris' N'Awlins adventure, some will prefer to come down Friday, so just give me a heads up and Ty will start setting up the hotel reservations.

Phil on Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 9:34 PM

hey joe - could be a few things. might just be that it got disabled with some weird keyboard press. some laptops have some weird shit like that. like mine will turn the monitor off and do weird stuff if i press Fn-F2.

Other than that, the cable might have become disconnected on the inside of the laptop. It might just have died. The thing should be on warranty...

joe on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 8:34 AM

I have a 1 year limited warranty where they will tell me to ship it back or take it to a licensed Acer dealer to get it fixed. I need to call or go online to find out what to do.

joe on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 9:30 AM

I will have to say, a good prison riot of 1200 people with 3 buildings burning down makes for a good story.

joe on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 9:34 AM

I had no clue what was going on and I got a text from a random phone number. It turned out to be a girl I work with who knew I was in Danville who is from Danville. The text read "you all stay in your room. Mom called me about the riots." So that is how I found out there were riots.

Phil on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 10:04 AM

looked it up. when you get home try pressing fn-F7. That toggles the touchpad on acer models.

joe on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 10:16 AM

I was playing with the fn buttons while trying to get the headphones to work since I was watching Pinky and the Brain and Superbad in the barn.

joe on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 10:34 AM

I went to a horse show for some unknown reason. Laura took horses to a show there and I took booze, snacks and movies to the show. My quote to Phil if I remember correctly was "I think I am the only American here without a vag." If I wasn't allowed to drink I might have snapped.

Sitting around at a horse show for two and a half days and faking that I enjoy being there is a tremondous trump card to hold on to.

douglas on Monday, August 24, 2009 at 11:05 AM

i was referring to the draft wes, and phil, you read my mind, that's why i was asking, b/c friday at 7pm is a much better time to sit around and drink than sit at home in front of the computer and rub one out between draft picks

joe on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 8:59 AM

Phil, Fn-F7 didn't work so I called Acer and they are sending me a recovery disk to do a system restore which I doubt will work and I'll have to call them back. During troubleshooting the guy on the phone kept telling me to click on things and right click but I had to keep telling them that it doesn't work. It was one of the dumbest hours of my life.

douglas on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 10:09 AM

that's saying a lot

douglas on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 11:47 AM

this is an article about billy gillispie in a san antonio newspaper. the article's fine, but I found this comment about him funny:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/sports/..._yet_again.html

Gillispie will be a curse for any program he is part of. He will continue to drink his way into young girls lives. If he never signed a contract, what makes him think he will be paid what is spelled out in that contract. He is a tireless recruiter, but how many kids out there are willing to be torn down with out ever being built up. Face it, the Bobby Knight days are over. Hes a millionaire females cant even stand him. Kudos for Kentucky for coming to their senses and getting rid of this clown. Mr Harvey, why dont you do some research before picking buddies. Over half of his team at UK was either going to transfer or try for the next level if he were to return. I would choose Calipari over Gillispie any day. And that dirty little smirk you love is because he constantly passes gas. Enjoy.

joe on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 12:23 PM

Didn't every one know this about him before UK hired him?

douglas on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 1:34 PM

that he passes gas? seriously though no, if you ask his A&M players about him, they love him, Acie Law will talk about him non-stop about how great of a guy and coach he is. I think he just didn't fit into UK with all the demands of doing things he didn't want to do and it carried over into his coaching. he's a great recruiter, you have to remember half of Cal's incoming class was Gillispie's and he had some other people on the radar, and you can't deny what he did before UK, i imagine he'll get a job at a smaller BCS school and do great in the next couple years, when all he has to do is coach and recruit and drink dr. pepper

joe on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 1:59 PM

I was more or less talking about the social aspect of him.

Brent on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 2:00 PM

Gillespie only had 1 recruit that is worth mentioning when compared to the rest of what Calipari brought.

douglas on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 2:23 PM

he already had bledsoe wrapped up, calipari had to go back to him and convince him to come to KY. that's on top of orton, and plus he had vilarino, who from what I hear has been doing well this summer in preseason stuff for gonzaga. i'm not saying he's anywhere near cal on recruiting, but he wasn't tubby either

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 2:45 PM

Douglas I am a conservative Democrat. I guess the big difference between my views with Dems vs. Reps comes down to the idea of social programs vs. charitable giving. I give to charities, but I don't see anything wrong with the government funding programs that help people in need. There are some good people that shitty things happen to and need assistance and I am alright with that. Yes I hate when people take advantage of the system, but if you think about it everybody takes advantage of the system. This is just one example but how many people report shit they buy on the internet for their tax return? I know I don't.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 2:46 PM

You can't comment on a recruit until they sign, which isn't until Feb.

I personally think this is his leave of absence or stepping down. I said from day 1 Ralph Willard was a calculated hire.

joe on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 2:49 PM

he's gotta be revealing something before the other shoe drops, I've been saying there's more to this story and it's only a matter of time. in the real world, you don't marry your boss's mistress whose abortion he just paid for, six months after it happened.

he said she's lying

joe on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 3:14 PM

He told the media to quit posting her lies and let the truth come out in court is what I got out of it.

douglas on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 3:23 PM

i understand what he was saying, and what he was trying to do, but he went about it the wrong way. getting in front of the media, which for the most part has been covering your ass, and telling them to stop spreading lies, which for the most part they haven't, is not going to help your cause. he singled out fox 41 for airing the first sypher interview, but the problem is they edited that interview so bad that they never revealed they ever had sex, much less she was pregnant. they talk about sypher b/c she's out there talking, while he's holed up in a corner hoping this goes away. if he wanted to get his story out, do an interview with your buddy pat forde and answer only softball questions in a nice way that will be edited in your favor, don't talk a pointless presser and jump all over journalists for writing about things people want to hear about

"I have been a fan of Pitino's for awhile; he probably does not care, but I am seeing the light, so to speak. There appears to be some mental instability there. If anyone has seen "The Bunker", about Hitler's last days, this may be the long awaited sequel."

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 3:32 PM

Sorry, that guy is a UK fan.

douglas on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 3:32 PM

they were just making fun of pitino on the radio, playing his clips from the conference where he's saying she's lying over and over, while lachlan mclane keeps saying, "in case you haven't heard, she's lying, everybody got that?" and then they play another clip of pitino saying it's all lies. he just didn't come off very well. UL fans will say how passionate he was, UK fans will make fun of how angry he was, just more fuel for the rivalry i guess

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 3:35 PM

Matt Jone makes an interesting point. Rick Pitino better hope no other woman steps up and claims she was fucking him at his UK days or any other woman that Rick has got fresh on. This could be a real train wreck waiting to happen.

It's all lies, except what I tell you.

Bigworm on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 4:45 PM

Of course some guys on Kentucky.scout.com just thought Pitino shot himself in the foot because of his public attack on Sypher and this 6 minute long press conference that there is no way Karen Sypher can get a fair public trial in Louisville, KY......here comes the change in venue.

douglas on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 4:51 PM

there will be no good that comes from this for pitino. i know i'm a UK fan, but i said the same thing when billy clyde clowned jeannine edwards on national TV, and this is worse. here's eric crawford's reaction:

http://www.courier-journal.com/blog...wford/blog.html

In the process, he took what was a story with little to no national interest -- the release of audio of some voice mails he left Sypher, all of which, by the way, confirm his stance that he never pressured or forced her to get an abortion -- and turned it into a story of national interest, of a coach lashing out at the media.

The thing is he just needs to shut up.

"Don't forget that he's the victim here! Yes, the news reporters have pointed out that Pitino has been charged with nothing, while Karen Sypher will go on trial for extortion. (Hopefully! He needs this trial and her craziness is really inconvenient for him.) But that's not what's important here. The economy is. So is Ted Kennedy. And basketball. And recruiting, which is going just fine by the way. Because Rick Pitino is not a liar like the media is. He apologized to his family six years ago! He's a New Yorker! What more do you want?

He was so mad he even forgot to work in a 9/11 reference. His lawyers told him to keep quiet—probably because they know that angry, hyper-defensive rants generally don't win you sympathy points—but Rick Pitino doesn't care what lawyers think. He cares about Ted Kennedy. When you're in a scandal, you won't find a finer role model to turn to."

Douglas tell me you watched the Tallahassee video for the premier. Make sure you watch it till the end.

Future Rick Pitino Press Conference. It really is hard not to laugh.

Bigworm on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 1:19 PM

Gregg Doyel liking Ricky P.

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 1:32 PM

I can't watch video at work, I will when i get home

joe on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 1:32 PM

Colin Cowherd is ripping into Pitino. Basically he is saying that he is used to being able to bully the media about sports and that he is bigger then everybody else.

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 1:52 PM

it's on national websites too, he's gotta realize now he fucked up in having that conference and only made the story bigger and provided more video clips for people to make fun of

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 1:52 PM

people went from feeling sorry for him for being extorted by a crazy bitch (which she is) and generally having people in his corner to being made fun of

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 2:02 PM

good read, jason whitlock's take:

http://msn.foxsports.com/cbk/story/...t-a-playa-he-is

When a playa gets busted, he/she changes the discussion from what he did wrong to something someone else did wrong and is more than likely untrue or exaggerated. A playa creates a false reality and then expects you to hold a debate about the lie he just concocted.

Pimpino spent Wednesday night at home debating the irresponsible media rather than his irresponsibility.

I spent Wednesday listening to Johnnie Taylor. I suspect Pitino might be listening to my favorite rapper, Tech N9ne's anthem "I'm a Playa."

joe on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 2:14 PM

Colin did go on to say that for the most part outside of Kentucky this is a nonissue.

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:17 PM

damn i love this state. Luke Whitehead just got busted with 7 lbs of marijuana. it hasn't made news yet, but his lawyer is friends with the guy that used to play ball at UL in my office and told him about it. college basketball in this state is on a roll right now

Phil on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:18 PM

if that's true, douglas may be the first person in the history of the site besides cheryl to actually have "insider" info.

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:20 PM

apparently wlky reported it so that's why he said something, he was waiting for it to be reported before he said anything, but C-J hasn't picked it up yet, and i don't see it on wlky's website

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:21 PM

apparently UK and UL are one some kind of destructive game of one-upmanship

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:23 PM

i'll call your pitino press conference with a gillispie DUI.

i'll raise you a whitehead marijuana arrest

Phil on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:24 PM

don't forget Cal saying he was going to punch forde

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:32 PM

that was good too

so the skinny on whitehead, the UL guy in our office was on the phone about 2pm with his lawyer buddy, something Webb, as he was driving back from lexignton, and he got a call and said he'd have to call him back. called him back 20 minutes later, and said "well I can tell you what's going to be on the news very soon. 7 lbs. of marijuana, paraphernalia, and guns"

Phil on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:44 PM

looks like it's been up on WLKY for a few hours
http://www.wlky.com/news/20586297/detail.html

Bigworm on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 4:48 PM

That's great stuff. My insider stuff dried up with the ole UK basketball admin was re-assigned when BCG came into office.

My brother did hire a guy that played for Gillispie at A&M. That was an interesting and insightful conversation.

Jerome on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 5:24 PM

Douglas said, "college basketball in this state is on a roll right now". That made me picture Whitehead rolling a joint and it made me laugh.

douglas on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 5:53 PM

wes, do tell...

Bigworm on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 9:40 PM

Nothing really more than we already know, he is a drunk and a woman chaser. This guy claims he would go out drinking with Billy G all the time after games and practice and what have you. Just enjoyed partying. Not saying he is doing anything more than any other guy, just saying.

Cheryl on Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 11:58 PM

Brent--whats your number for this weekend?

Brent on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 12:13 AM

I pick it up tomorrow, but Im pretty sure its going to be #813, that's what it said online. Im still kind of shocked with the weather, this is nuts.

Barry on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 12:26 AM

douglas on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 8:14 AM

i'm playing golf at covered bridge today so i'll be gone, but are we still doing joe's house tonight for the draft?

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 8:15 AM

I'll be at home if you want to bring a computer over and log in there.

douglas on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 8:17 AM

i don't have a laptop

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 8:23 AM

I believe the draft requires you to be at a PC

douglas on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 8:36 AM

nevermind then

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 10:13 AM

Something annoying but comical from this morning, I woke up around 6:00 to the sound of random beeping. I investigated and it was a school bus that accidentally drove all the way to the end of the dead end on my street and wsa trying to get the bus turned around by doing a 27 point turn and not hitting anything.

Phil on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 11:00 AM

fuck. laptop. i might have an extra laptop, douglas.

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 11:07 AM

So you are bringing an extra laptop for douglas, a mouse for me. Just gather up all your computer stuff and supply the draft. Would MaximumAsp sponsor the draft and supply computers next season?

Phil on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 11:19 AM

if i have an extra laptop, it's my gas little one. but it'll work.

The problem with us sponsoring it is that we have such bitchy rules on what kind of computer can connect and who. I'm not even sure if we can do the draft here.

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 11:49 AM

If you plan to come to my house this evening for the draft let me know ahead of time. Those attaching to my internet will be pleased to know that my wireless connections name is Tuscan Mule.

Phil on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 11:55 AM

i'll be heading over to your place, joe.

btw. we are still short one person. Do we go with a bye week or do we have a ghost ship team?

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 12:05 PM

bye week

Brent on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 12:51 PM

What time is the draft? I prob won't be able to make it, I have a mandatory Ironman meeting to go to at 7:30.

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 1:17 PM

draft is at 7:00

Phil on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 1:34 PM

as quick as our drafts go, we might be done by 7:30. I wonder if the iPhone can do the yahoo draft stuff

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 1:38 PM

Chris is on call so he may or may not be available.

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 2:00 PM

Work has become enjoyable again. I found ESPN radio again by busting out a 1990 Fresh Prince of Bel Air boom box. It required a fancy antenna and tin foul and metal clips to get reception, but it was a success.

Jerome on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 2:01 PM

Ghost ship!

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 3:09 PM

Would you rather be:

Andy Roddick or John Mayer?
Roger Federer or Sting?
John McEnroe or Bono?

Brent on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 3:22 PM

Unable to access from the iphone, damn it!

douglas on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 4:27 PM

phil, if you can bring an extra laptop i'll definitely come

Phil on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 5:06 PM

i am worried my other laptop won't run. and my second one is a 9" screen. Fuck fuck fuck.

I do have a mouse for joe though

douglas on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 6:08 PM

got one, i'll be there

Bigworm on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 6:40 PM

I won't be there for the draft.

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 6:52 PM

pussy

Bigworm on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 6:57 PM

Did we move the draft back? It is now saying Saturday at 715???

Bigworm on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 6:59 PM

Who is the new guyfor the team? Is that a ghost team?

Jerome on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:03 PM

So are we doing this tomorrow now?

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:05 PM

We needed a 10th team or it wouldn't let us draft. Yahoo freaked and wouldn't let the draft happen. He tried to reset the draft and it wouldn't let it happen. The draft is gonna be Tuesday we think now.

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:06 PM

Jerome's son is the 10th team

Jerome on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:09 PM

WTF happened to Saturday?!?!?!

Brock on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:09 PM

Damn you homos. You changed the draft time to when the Brew at the Zoo is going on tomorrow.

All you can drink, all you can eat, and lions! There has to be a good story to come from that.

Jerome on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:10 PM

The ZOO is still on ... my screen is showing Tuesday when ... oh good. Ain't shit happening Tuesday

joe on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 7:36 PM

word

Phil on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 11:14 PM

plan is tuesday at 6:30. i'll be at wicks doing the draft for $2 imports. Joe may meet me up there.

Sorry about that. Fucking Yahoo.

Bigworm on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 2:03 PM

Philco - If it is alright with everybody else, can we move it back to about 8:15 pm on Tuesday? It will be hard for me to participate in a live draft before 8:00 during the week. If not that's cool to.

joe on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 9:05 PM

LAST PUUPY SOLD! I had the dogs out front while I was washing my truck today and a car randomly drove by and turned around and drove up and asked if he was for sale. It is a cop and his wife and 2 kids that live one street over on Plymouth. The turned down the street because someone was throwing away a couch that they wanted. They had a border collie on their farm in Nelson County and moved here for their son to go to Trinity. Their dog was a farm dog so it couldn't move here so they needed a new one.

Between 7 puppies created by a driveway lovefest I think Laura brought in close to $4,000. I can't believe people pay what they do for a dog.

Bigworm on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 9:08 PM

Congrats Joe - Just in time for her to go in heat again.

joe on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 9:14 PM

Oh hell no, not yet. Maybe next time. I'm puppied out.

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 10:42 AM

Dr. Scott Kellie -
TOTAL SWIM 2.4 mi. (1:06:38) 1:45/100m
FIRST BIKE SEGMENT 22 mi (1:05:59) 20.01 mph
SECOND BIKE SEGMENT 37 mi (45:32) 19.77 mph

Brent Cecil -
TOTAL SWIM 2.4 mi. (1:39:55) 2:37/100m
FIRST BIKE SEGMENT 22 mi (1:16:33) 17.24 mph

rory gillman -
TOTAL SWIM 2.4 mi. (1:08:05) 1:47/100m
FIRST BIKE SEGMENT 22 mi (1:13:38) 17.93 mph
SECOND BIKE SEGMENT 37 mi (51:31) 17.47 mph

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 10:52 AM

I think brent died between mile 22 and 37.

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 11:01 AM

brent

SECOND BIKE SEGMENT 37 mi (51:27) 17.49 mph

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 12:08 PM

On the ironman tracker all the times for the bike have dissapeared. I'm guessing Laura wrecked her horse tailer on 42 and took out half of the Ironman field.

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 12:31 PM

Scott

FIRST BIKE SEGMENT 22 mi (1:05:59) 20.01 mph
SECOND BIKE SEGMENT 37 mi (45:32) 19.77 mph
THIRD BIKE SEGMENT 67 mi (1:31:19) 19.71 mph

Rory
FIRST BIKE SEGMENT 22 mi (1:13:38) 17.93 mph
SECOND BIKE SEGMENT 37 mi (51:31) 17.47 mph
THIRD BIKE SEGMENT 67 mi (1:47:11) 16.79 mph

Brent is somewhere in the 3rd segment. The tracker hasn't updated him yet.

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 12:33 PM

The pros are already running the marathon. They averaged 24 mph on the ride.

Brock on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 12:44 PM

I wonder if Brent was pacing himself on the swim. 30 minutes behind the other guys. Or.... Scott and Rory are Mer-men.

Scott is also FLYIN' on that bike. Nearly 20mph over those distances... that's impressive. 17-18mph is hard to maintain even over 15-20 miles.

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 12:56 PM

Brent:

THIRD BIKE SEGMENT 67 mi (1:51:25) 16.16 mph

Scott was a high school swimmer. i think Brent needs our support. Rory is Brent's friend. Apparently he hurt himself a couple weeks ago and can't run so he is going to walk the marathon.

I've calculated that Scott should start running around 2:45 if he keeps his pace up. He didn't actually get in the water till around 7:30. The race started at 7:00. Your time doesn't start till you cross the start. Scott could have started a half hour after brent and they could have been neck and neck getting out of the water.

Brock on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 1:00 PM

That's cool. Where is the run?

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 1:23 PM

waterfront park across 2nd street bridge, loop back across the bridge and take 3rd and 4th street to new cut loop back to downtown and go back out 3rd/4th street and back to 4th street live.

joe on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 1:24 PM

this is the tracking site. 644, 813 and 820 are their bib numbers

Phil on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Joe - blind guy is Charles Plaskon. 66 years old. Neck and neck with Brent right now.

Phil on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 2:21 PM

don't read this article about the blind dude unless you want to feel like a complete little bitch
http://www.heraldtribune.com/articl...f-body-and-will

Bigworm on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 9:54 PM

Congrats to Scott and Brent for completing the IronMan, again. Simply awesome guys!!!

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 12:18 AM

That's hilarious, however, I am sure Douglas will have some fun with that one.

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 7:53 AM

Just for the record, I passed blind guy. Also, did you see the guy pacing blind guy, I mean c'mon, that guy was a stud, he needs another 66 year old dude out there pacing him.

Today, Im super sore, walking around like C-3PO.

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 8:15 AM

There was a second blind guy out there as well. He was younger. I think you kicked his ass. I feel lame because I'm sore from tracking the Ironman on my bike, up and back 3rd and 4th street, texting Phil where everyone is. I never saw number 820, Rory.

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 8:38 AM

Those little inspirational yells were very appreciated. It's funny b/c your name is on your bib, people would always say/yell my name but I could always tell by the pitch and tone of the people who yelled my name were someone I knew or not.

I didn't even know Rory was running the race till I saw him out on the course. That thing was brutal...I don't see myself doing this again.

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 8:49 AM

Back to the duathalons?

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 8:53 AM

Just shorter tri's...duathlons don't carry the same clout, half the fun of doing a triathlon is telling people you do triathlons :)

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 8:58 AM

I would entertain the idea of a Triathalon Sprint:

Swim - 0.6mi, Bike - 12.4mi, Run - 3.1mile

I need a goal to try to get back in shape besides run fo rthe hell of it.

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 9:03 AM

Pick one out and let me know, we could probably get Phil on board as well. I would rather do sprints, there at least fun and you know you don't have to hold anything back.

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 9:52 AM

Brent - congrats again buddy, that is pretty badass that you finished....again! Was it better to do this one with the weather being cooler outside or was it getting to the point that it was a little too cool for the swim/bike ride?

And in completely non-related news....I was selected to come in for an interview for Sullivan's College of Pharmacy. Just scheduled my interview for Friday, October 2nd at 11:30.

Phil on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 10:47 AM

how do the sprint trathalons work on the swim? I saw one that was in a pool. WTF?

mowgli on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 11:01 AM

I would like to know as well...I am interested.

Phil on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 11:45 AM

move the draft to next Friday at 7? Jerome can't make tomorrow and neither can Wes.

douglas on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 11:52 AM

fine with me

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 12:23 PM

The 4th is fine with me as of now.

Phil on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 12:36 PM

the aye's have it. draft time changed to 7pm.

Brock on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 1:50 PM

Are we still in need of an extra FF player? I may have an interested party.

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 2:01 PM

Jerome's son Alan took the roster spot.

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 2:18 PM

If it's in a pool, it's a time trial start where someone enters the pool every 10sec, then u snake, it sucks bc some people don't know what they're doing, I usually just swim the middle lane...usually they only do pool starts when it's around 400m

Phil on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:08 PM

joe, i still think our event should by the cyclocross. i'm tempted to check this out:
http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...isherman+s+Park

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:12 PM

Is Jerome's son old enough to understand ff and will he care?

Phil on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:26 PM

yeah, we can swap out of mini-Jerome for someone that will give a shit. Plus we won't have to worry about being potty mouths

douglas on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:29 PM

we don't cuss that fucking much do we?

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:30 PM

That's bullshit!

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:36 PM

Lt. Col. Billy Way with the Oldham County Police Department said some children were throwing sticks at bicyclists near Countryside subdivision on U.S. 42, and later some bicyclists ran over tacks that had been thrown in the road and had to deal with flat tires.

Brent on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:40 PM

I heard some guy say that to somebody as I passed, saying he had a tac in his tire, what a bunch of little bastards, this is why we should have public floggings

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Exactly, just make an example out of the few, and the other file right in line.

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 3:51 PM

So college football actually starts thursday right? Does anybody know who is playing?

Jerome on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Jerome's son Alan would actually be Jerome and Phil managing a ghost team. Alan just had a readily accessible yahoo account.

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Well that works for me, and thanks for letting me in on that guys. I just knew I was going to get beat by the 10 year old.

Jerome on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 4:04 PM

Alan's a 4th grader and he goes to the same school that Joe and Chris went to. I have no doubt he's already heard and used bad language. It wouldn't surprise me if he already knows how to tap a keg.

He understands FF, but would probably want to have all Steelers in his starting lineup with Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Bush... like father, like son in many ways.

joe on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 4:05 PM

Thursday: Bosie St. - Oregon

douglas on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 4:21 PM

And Boise State probably plays after that game

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 4:49 PM

South Carolina and NC State play at 7 on Thursday.

Phil on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 5:05 PM

is it just me or does it seem like wed, douglas and joe's posts are in reverse order?

Bigworm on Monday, August 31, 2009 at 10:30 PM

Good ole Willie Williams back in the news...

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 10:01 AM

I can't wait to watch the Bama vs. VT game and the Okie State vs. Georgia game. UGA (#13) is playing at Okie State (#8), not sure where the Bama game is played.

joe on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 10:39 AM

Any Labor Day weekend plans besides watching football? Friday people can come over for the Fantasy Football draft again if you want. Saturday my plan is UK at noon, Notre Dame at 3:30, UL at 7:30.

Next Saturday, the 12th, I am trying to plan my birthday. Basically it looks like watch the ND game while drinking then go eat something kick ass and then watch the USC-OSU game and drink. UL and UK are both off.

3:30 PM 23 Notre Dame -Michigan  ABC  
8:00 PM 4 USC - 6 Ohio State  ESPN  

Anybody else got anything exciting to do that day?

It sounds like everyone needs to keep Friday the 18th open for Chris and Joanna's birthday as a warmup for Brock's bachelor party the next weekend. The 19th is the UL-UK game at noon. What a beautiful month.

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 11:19 AM

Touchdown Jesus at 3:30 or you can watch the UGA (#13) visiting Okie State (#8) game at 3:30 on CBS.

Phil on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 11:48 AM

i'm down for the some Saturday action. I might even bring some snacks.

joe on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 12:20 PM

I still have your pizza from last friday. Save it for the draft? I think my goal is to sneak in a bike ride or run Saturday morning to not feel completely disgusting. You have hockey Saturday?

Phil on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 12:21 PM

no hockey on saturday.

Wrecking Crew on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 12:37 PM

Joe, lets try to ride Saturday since I may not feel like doing anything Sunday.


As far as 9/18 goes, I plan on being at the Bambi bar by 6pm and hopefully make it all the way to the PHT eventually. Everyone is welcome meet up with us anywhere along the route. If I can skip out of my afternoon lectures I may start earlier. College football starting, birthdays, bachelor parties...what a great month to be an alcoholic.

joe on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 12:41 PM

Should I just catch the 23 on Broadway and take the bus to Bardstown Road and Taylorsville Rd basically bussing the Bambi Walk in reverse that Friday?

joe on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 at 12:47 PM

Per colin cowherd on ESPN radio:

What happens to all the college coeds and elite college wide receivers?

So during the Ironman on Sunday Laura was trailering horses to a horse clinic she was riding in. This was on the bike route of the Ironman. My uncle knows this guy that was doing the Ironman and he never saw him reach the run. My uncle called him to see how he did and he never finished. He wrecked his bike on mile 90 and broke his collarbone. He said he wrecked his bike when he clipped a horse trailer. I wonder if there is a connection here.

douglas on Thursday, September 03, 2009 at 4:49 PM

me no like, he doesn't understand UK's fan base. i understand what he's doing, getting exposure for the university, blah blah blah, but he alienates and pisses off too many people when you mesh politics and sports, especially KY politics and UK sports, two subjects people round these parts are very passionate about.

and on top of that, obama's a UNC fan, and UNC fans are no friends of UK fans

douglas on Thursday, September 03, 2009 at 4:55 PM

Calipari had to take his facebook post announcing it down b/c of a large amount of negative comments against him sending the jersey too, and that's from UK fans that think he can do no wrong right now. i see his logic, black kids he's recruiting see obama in a UK jersey and they think it's cool, giving him buzz on the recruiting trail, but politics by nature are going to piss off half the population whenever you involve them in anything, and for the person with the most high profile job in the state to involve them in the state's most sacred institution, basketball, wasn't smart.

She is best known for her role as Winnie Cooper in the television show The Wonder Years, and now as author of the two New York Times bestsellers, Math Doesn't Suck, and Kiss My Math, which encourage middle-school girls to learn math.

So is the Oregon RB going to get to play again after that post game punch? Who is the bigger douche, the Boise guy for saying something and bumping into him or the Oregon guy for the sportsmanship? I heard an interview with the RB from Oregon and his a tard. I don't know how he got into college.

Bigworm on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 7:55 AM

After watching the South Carolina-NC State game last night I am ashamed those assclowns beat us last night. South Carolina looked terrible on offense. In fact, here is the best lines that describe the game.

"College football got kicked into high gear tonight and Stephen Garcia made Mike Hartline look like a clear-cut choice for Third Team All-SEC. The guy from NC State, though, made them both look like Heisman winners. What a crapfest."

Oregon had 14 yards of offense in the first half and then after the game a boise player got sucker punched and the punchee went after the fans in the stands and had to be restrained.

Holy shit, how did I miss that? Time to find some video.

yeah, that oregon rb won't the the light of a football field again this year. if he had gone and pushed him or something, that's one thing, but the dude was walking away and wasn't even looking, a complete sucker punch. so he's the bigger douche

Bigworm on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:21 AM

Actually here is how it all went down, forward to 2:30. Yeah it was a sucker punch, but what do you think is gonna happen when you taunt a football player with behavior issues. Apparently in the team meeting, they didn't discuss not to piss off Blount.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvqNHXq0WTM

Jerome on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:24 AM

I'm not sure if I would go with full tard on Blount. I definitely see special needs and a helmet for walking the campus. Then again, he probably is tard strong. The only thing missing is an affinity for Scooby Doo and a gummy bear addiction.

Bigworm on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:24 AM

joe on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:31 AM

Blount the RB had been trash talking all week and then laid a turd on the field and his manhood was at stake so he had to do something to feel like a man again. Hence the sucker punch.

Bigworm on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:31 AM

The white boy was being a dick, his coach realized it and tried to prevent it.....the problem is when you run your mouth just understand that your ass is going to get hit.

And here is the Egg Bowl fight of 2006, keep in mind this took place before the game even started.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEdp...feature=related

I bet Petrino is calling up the Blount kid as we speak, telling him he is the kind of player he likes.

Of course Blount was suspended on the first day of practice for behavior issues...I wonder why.

joe on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:35 AM

I'm sure the white boy said something to deserve it, but blount is an ass clown that was willing to waste his season by actually doing it.

Joe that is how I see it.

If it was a conference game and white boy was a bench player he would be a hero getting one of the best players on a good team in your conference suspended.

Bigworm on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 8:51 AM

Exactly. He would have been given the game ball afterwards and carried off the field Rudyesque. Okay, maybe not.

you know the white boy got ass last night though, sympathy ass is great

Phil on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 9:20 AM

Hout? That fucker is a bitch and I bet he gets suspended too. Just as much of a punk as Blout. Fucker started the whole thing running his white trash mouth after a game like a little bitch. Blout's an idiot for punching the dude, but Hout's the one that acted like the faggot.

douglas on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 9:44 AM

I just saw the punch, I haven't seen everything leading up to it, and I can't watch video at work. all i know is it takes one splendidly stupid fucker to sucker punch someone with no helmet on on national TV. yeah, the white boy might've been running his mouth, and yeah, he might be a huge fag, but literally everyone on a football field runs their mouth, defensive lines taunt quarterbacks endlessly on every play, DB's taunt receivers non-stop trying to get them off their game, it's part of football

Phil on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 10:09 AM

Well, i watched it last night so my memory could be fuzzy. All I know is that whatever he said it was enough that a coach ran after him and grabbed him and started yelling prior to the punch.

You got a backup DE that probably barely got in the game (I don't remember him doing anything) running his mouth saying something that was enough for the coaches to freak. And based on what I know about the Boise State people you gotta expect it was something amazingly racist.

In my book you 1) don't run your mouth after a game 2) you certainly don't run your mouth if you didn't play and 3) you certainly don't say something so bad that the coaches freak out. Everyone of us would have probably clocked that dude if he said what he said to Blount. I doubt very few of us would have said what Hout did.

Boise State already has a terrible image problem. If it comes out what the guy said was racist, you gotta wonder if that's gonna cost them some votes towards the end of the season when they are trying to sneak into a BCS bowl game. Oregon will survive. Blount will probably be suspended some meaningless game and be back.

Phil on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 10:13 AM

ha, loaded up deadspin. Looks like I'm not alone in my view of Hout

Kirk Herbstreit is calling for both of them to be kicked off their respective teams. Colin Cowherd said kick blount out of school and no punishment to Boise dude. Colin's view was everyone runs their mouth and it isn't how you act it is how you react and Blount reacted bad.

Phil on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 10:28 AM

funny post i saw on the oregon site about Blunt. It's becoming more and more apparently what was said. Here was one of the replies:

Which N word was it?
No heart?
No hustle?
No game?

Bigworm on Friday, September 04, 2009 at 10:29 AM

The white trash dude tounted Blount before he got punched. He came from across the field hit Blount on the shoulder to make sure he got his attention and talked some trash. White trash's coach grabs him to pull him away and then Blount gives him a right cross to the chin sending white trash to the ground. Blount backs up hopping ready to throw down. 6 smurfs where around when Blount knocked white trash ass clown down....and they did nothing but yell.

If you like watching punks get punched, it was quite poetic.

I don't really think "Redhawks" and "thug" go together. I can see "douchebags" and "Redhawks," but thats as far as I go.

Miami is ranked dead last in FBS division by the computers. Spreading such propaganda is just kicking a man while he's down.

I'll have to give it to UK, they at least played an FBS school (the worst one) instead of mighty Indiana State, which is probably the worst FCS school.

Others besides brohm with local connections who were cut: Panthers quarterback Hunter Cantwell (UofL); Giants quarterback Andre' Woodson (North Hardin High School/University of Kentucky); Buccaneers wide receivers Mario Urrutia (Fern Creek/UofL) and Patrick Carter (UofL); Saints defensive tackle Earl Heyman (Ballard/UofL); Bears cornerback Woodny Turenne (UofL); Rams offensive tackle Renardo Foster (UofL); Bengals defensive lineman Ventrell Jenkins (UK); Browns offensive linemen Kurt Quarterman (UofL) and Isaac Sowells (Doss/Indiana University); Saints wide receiver Courtney Roby (IU); Jaguars safety Marlon McCree (UK); Jaguars fullback Brock Bolen (UofL); Jaguars linebacker Johnny Williams (UK); Patriots defensive back Herana-Daze Jones (Iroquois/IU); Colts defensive tackle Adrian Grady (UofL); Vikings defensive end Otis Grigsby (UK); and Raiders kick returner Justin Miller (Owensboro High).

Btw, Brohm is back with the Packers on the practice squad I believe

Barry on Sunday, September 06, 2009 at 5:25 PM

pretty pissed off folks down here on the bayou

Phil on Sunday, September 06, 2009 at 5:42 PM

they pissed off about the game? Jake Locker is the man. He's the straight man's Tim Tebow. They should be more pissed off that they smell like corn dogs and know nothing about football outside of the SEC than they are about the performance on the field.

Only reason UW was shitty last year was because Locker was hurt. Highlights from his freshman year:

Barry - why are the bayou fans pissed? Didn't LSU win? I didn't watch the game at all so if you care to fill me in I'd appreciate it.

Bigworm on Monday, September 07, 2009 at 1:30 PM

Woodson signed by the Skins to the practice squad.

Barry on Monday, September 07, 2009 at 3:59 PM

thanks phil, i too watched jake locker in 07 and was thoroughly impressed. There are a lot of lsu fans that don't follow anything other than the sec, but I am not one of them. And many fans were very familiar with locker because they scout before games.

Defense Bad
Sure locker can play but for fuck's sake 478 yds of total offense (more than we gave up in any one game all last year)! 11 for 19 3rd down conversions! 36:52 time of possession

Chris Hawkins (CB) could not shed a block the whole night and that cost us on some screens and sweeps.
Chad Jones and Brandon Taylor (FS and SS respectively) were out of position a lot and mediocre at best.
No pressure from the d-line (1 sack all night-yes I am aware that locker is fast-watch how much time he has)

Defense Good
Patrick Peterson (CB -sophomore) should be an All American before he graduates. Looked really good last year, but the kid was everywhere Saturday (9 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 2 PBU).
Linebackers played solid
forced 2 turnovers

Offense Bad
Vanilla play calling (probably to protect Jefferson)
O-line could not get a push until late 3rd quarter-Charles Scott ineffective (12 rushes 52 yds but first carry went for 21)
Lafell had four passes thrown his way
No Shepard

Offense Good
No interceptions
Toliver looked good
Keiland Williams played well in second half (and the line got a push)

General feel is if UW doesn't turn the ball over twice (one run back for a td and the other on our 5 yd line) and have 11 penalties for 83 yds, we lose that game.

Barry on Monday, September 07, 2009 at 4:10 PM

I do think some people down here are overreacting, but it wasn't pretty. I said before the season started that I thought we would be much better but still might lose 5 games (Gators at home, Ole Miss and Bama on the road are losses, but we typically lose a game or 2 we shouldn't and I'm counting Georgia on the road and a third straight loss to the razorbacks as possible games to lose). Next year we should be nasty and we'll have a little better schedule.

joe on Monday, September 07, 2009 at 5:40 PM

Brock is loving this halftime score in the Cincy game.

Bigworm on Monday, September 07, 2009 at 9:14 PM

Barry - these are all things that Les will correct.

Brock on Monday, September 07, 2009 at 10:43 PM

I loved the halftime score almost as much as the final score.

Is it scary that UC pounded Rutgers worse on the road than UofL did Indy State at home?

Former Notre Dame QB Demetrius Jones gets 2 sacks and an INT. Brian Kelly is a football genius. Conner Barwin goes from TE to defensive player of the year in the Big East last year, now Jones.

YEEE-HAWW!

Bigworm on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:37 PM

Brock are you building in Nashville or Louisville?

I think I figured out a decent idea. If you can buy a really long street and just continue to build shitty small houses on it and protect it with a building bonus you can have a pretty nice income generator.

I just bought LaGrange Road for $1M, and the houses were costing $50K and producing $50K of income, the residential center was $75K and $75K so you were getting a 1:1 return on your investment. Not bad.

Phil on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:40 PM

it seems to easy to protect a street with one building though. brock, did you get a special building?

i mean, a longer street generates more money per building. and it only takes one special building to protect said street. not a lot of reason to buy anything but really long streets if the special buildings come as often as they seem to pop up.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:41 PM

Exactly.

Phil on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:45 PM

hooray! that was worth seven points. nice catch, semi-blanco nino

Phil on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:46 PM

once you get the major money make street going you are in business. the masonic homes is my big daddy right now, but its only a $800,000 street.

Phil on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:47 PM

aaaaaaaaaaand this...is 60 minutes

Bigworm on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:48 PM

All I know is Willie Parker hasn't done shit all game.

Brock on Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 11:49 PM

I own Graymoor Rd, Girard Drive, and Calimar Lane

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 12:05 AM

Doc Brock, you've been friended.

douglas on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 8:45 AM

i hate my work filter, i wanna play

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 9:09 AM

I tried logging in last night at home but that page was running way to slow to get on.

Brent on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 9:41 AM

MCS is painfully slow, almost not even worth it.

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 10:18 AM

you know, i was thinking that if that thing wasn't so slow it'd almost have lost it's charm. There's maybe what, 3 minutes worth of shit you could possibly do if it was running quick?

But instead every click and move is coldly calculate because it'll take fucking 4 minutes to load.

Why this appeals to my ADD rattled brain I have no idea.

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 10:26 AM

I never got past the loading screen.

Someone just questioned peoples strecthing of the dress code at work and said don't dress for the job you have, dress for the job you want bascially meaning we are sloppy and do the bare minimum. This chick responded with superb idea I'm showing up to work on Monday in a tutu and a tiara. I chuckled.

Bigworm on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 10:40 AM

Sounds to me like they are daring you to grow a 70's porn stache.

Bigworm on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 10:52 AM

Phil this is what you said: "you know, i was thinking that if that thing wasn't so slow it'd almost have lost it's charm. There's maybe what, 3 minutes worth of shit you could possibly do if it was running quick?

But instead every click and move is coldly calculate because it'll take fucking 4 minutes to load.

Why this appeals to my ADD rattled brain I have no idea."

This is what I heard:
Brian Spillner: You should be going to MIT or something.
Philco: Yeah, right. No, I got that.... What's it called? That attention disorder.
Brian Spillner: ADD?Y
Phico: Yes, that shit. Yeah. You know, I was good in algebra|and like math and shit. Everything else I failed. |Dropped out of school. I don't know. It's just something about MCS......that calms me down, you know.

Bigworm on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 10:53 AM

Probably because I was watching Tokyo Drift inbetween football commercials.

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 12:37 PM

Anybody have thoughts on office collections of money for people? We had a collection today for money for a person having a baby.

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 12:43 PM

i would have thrown a condom into the collection bowl.

not really though

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 12:46 PM

I'm sick of signing cards and people soliciting money. I hate signing cards for peoples retirements and such and writing phony best wishes for people I have never even spoken to.

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 1:11 PM

you did read the "Fuck Your Stupid Life Event" article on deadspin, right?
http://deadspin.com/5309206/f-k-you...-to-gift-giving

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 1:14 PM

That is an older article isn't it? I think I did. I don't remember much about it.

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 1:18 PM

yeah, it's like two months old. makes me laugh though

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 2:59 PM

Anything going on tonight or interested in doing anything tonight? My birthday is tomorrow. If you are interested in something tonight and/or tomorrow let me know. I might come up with something brilliant.

douglas on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 3:03 PM

i'm interested, let me know what you get into, no kiddo this weekend, plus sarah has to go to lexington for a seminar all day tomorrow so she's just going to bed early

Brent on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 3:08 PM

Dude, I freaking hate the collection pools. It's all about babies and weddings, neither of which I have any interest in becoming a part of yet I have to donate whatever everybody else does or risk looking like an even bigger jerk.

The other day, I put my foot down, people were collecting money for an "emergency fund" for a coworker that was moving to San Francisco. Granted I like the girl a lot and understand that it can be hard to move, but c'mon, she has parents, her dad is retired at 55 and her stepmom is a doctor. Shes not going to be prostituting herself for next month's rent. So I didn't donate. Keeping with the rant, my boss personally collected money for a fundraiser and stated the recommended donation was $5, she air quoted recommended. I thought that was a bit inappropriate.

douglas on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 3:25 PM

more than a bit, pretty fucking rude actually. and if you protest, the response is it's "only" 5 dollars, which completely negates the point, if it's five dollars here, then it's five dollars next week for someone else, and five more for someone's birthday next week, and so on

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 3:54 PM

i can't get too drunk tonight, but i'd be up for something.

let me know. and lynnie too

joe on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 3:59 PM

Why can't you get too drunk tonight? Can you tomorrow? Is it because of hockey tomorrow?

douglas on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 4:01 PM

we're having a surprise party for sarah's friend liz tonight, she's moving to columbus tomorrow, that's at like 6:30, mainly her family and shit, but i'm free after that

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 4:02 PM

i just can't get hammered. i gotta head into work in the morning because i got a shit ton of stuff to get done by monday. and with hockey also on sunday along with football i doubt i'll get anything done then

Brent on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 4:14 PM

Hockey on Sunday? Phil remember the redzone dude.

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 4:19 PM

oh i'll be at your place right up until i have to leave for hockey. i have to leave at 5:30ish to get there in time for my game this week.

Phil on Friday, September 11, 2009 at 4:47 PM

Drinking in Hilton Head on Vanderbilt's dime. Priceless.

douglas on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 1:34 PM

ditto. haven't been this bad in a long time. sarah was not happy to find me still passed out in the bathroom when she woke up this morning to take a shower

Phil on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 1:56 PM

woke up on the couch.

how was brendans?

adrian on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 2:56 PM

I say cut through the bull shit and go ahead line up Florida and USC and have the championship game.

Phil on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 4:08 PM

here's the "retired" pic i was talking about drunkenly last night

E. Illinois - 31
Indiana St - 0

E. Illinois held Indiana State to 95 total yards.

douglas on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 4:41 PM

brendan's was an extra bar we probably shouldnt've gone too, although we did make the bouncer let us in for free

Phil on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 12:46 AM

i believe the team cinci put 70 up against beat Quincy 70-3. Quincy, of course, beat ISU

Sigh

Brock on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 12:02 PM

.... it's gonna be ugly.

Barry on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 4:24 PM

leaving texas out of the converstaion eh adrian?

Bigworm on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 4:54 PM

I say UT and UF.

Bigworm on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 4:54 PM

i too would like to see usc go down to an sec team. i don't see a whole lot in texas' way.

douglas on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 8:19 AM

so this is lauren talking about bmac on their wedding website:

When I met Brian, I was immediately drawn to his gentle yet inquisitive personality.

I can't help but to keep picturing him saying "You like that shit?"

joe on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 8:38 AM

I got that email about the wedding site. I haven't read it yet.

I think I might catch you in football tonight Douglas. All I need is Pivers to outscore vincent Jackson by 11.

douglas on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:03 AM

you might indeed, i've actually got rivers in another league with money on the line, so all in all, if he does well i'm not sweating it a bit. i'm just pissed b/c we'll both score more points tonight so no matter the outcome, you and i should be the two top scorers, and one of us has to lose. it's definitely fantasy football time again

joe on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:06 AM

my #3 QB was on the bench in Hasselback who got me 27 points.

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:06 AM

All was good in my game until Jennings caught that last TD pass. I had a 30 point lead, but this guy has two going tonight and one of them is T.O.

Needless to say, I am chalking this one up as a loss.

joe on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:17 AM

I want to see week 3 eagles with Vick at QB starting.

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:27 AM

Looks like I have to put Favre into my starting rotation.

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:29 AM

Brees and Peterson put up some big numbers in our league yesterday.

joe on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:43 AM

and fucking romo

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:44 AM

Romo had 40, Peterson 47.5 and Brees 56 points.

Brock on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:45 AM

That Vick pick in the last round might end up paying off.

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 9:53 AM

Maybe. Of course he didn't do shit in the pre-season games.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 11:39 AM

I'm pleased to see that I not only survived the weekend, but Pee Wee Reese trived under my hungover / hammered regime.

joe on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 12:26 PM

huh?

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 12:31 PM

i apparently played monopoly street in a very drunk stage on friday night and sunday morning.

joe on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 12:38 PM

gotcha

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 12:56 PM

this was a pretty awesome shot by Federer against Djokovic

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTxYVgCNz3M

Brock on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 2:38 PM

Apparently they are shutting down and resetting the Monopoly game in a few days anyway, so the Pee Wee Reese Ave empire is sort of futile anyway.

Although, that's not stopping me from conquering everything east of I-264 between 42 and La Grange. I do enjoy bulldozing opponents.

After the reset, we might have to team up to make any real progress in the game. You just can't do too much per round.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 3:06 PM

The Pee Wee Reese empire taught me some things though. It seems getting the long street is still key. But don't build anything of value on it until you can get a card to protect yourself. I see a lot of people buying long streets and then using the rest of their money on a big ass tower.

I bought that place and apparently my drunken self just started plopping down tiny houses. Genius. You only get the chance cards if you do something. You need the chance cards to get the park or whatever to protect your future cash cow. So keep plopping down the tiny houses until you can protect the street. Then you can go back in and fill it with high profit buildings.

Once you get the cash rolling in from that I think I'll go to operation lots of little streets. I think I might try to buy up every street in Hazard County.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 3:16 PM

It looks like UK is gonna open at a 11pt favorite. If I could brings myself to bet against the cards I'd put upwards of $1000 on that game.

douglas on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 3:22 PM

i'm assuming on the over?

Jay on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

I really wish this was the weekend Michelle was going out of town. As it is, I hear how much UofL sucks at least once a day. Michelle tends to stay away from me if I'm drinking. Therefore, I should probably get hammered this weekend then.

Just kidding, baby!

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 3:53 PM

I'd bet the house on UK, obviously

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:34 PM

Where were you when the Death Star fell?
http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1920944

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:35 PM

Phil you are correct. You can get the long street for $1M and build some smaller houses to generate income...and notice it is a 1 for 1 cost:reward on that million dollar street.

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:36 PM

Brock - are you bulldozing my shit down?

Brock on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:38 PM

No. I know you own LaGrange, so I'm not bothering it.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:39 PM

so no one has fucked with me yet. what happens if someone bulldozes a building? You just gotta rebuild it?

Brock on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:40 PM

Have you all figured out the logic for how many things you have to do to get a Chance card?

I've also seen the strategy of buying medium size streets and just completely filling them with houses. You can't build a hazard on a full street.

Yeah, if they bulldoze it, its gone. Its a way to break into protected streets.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:41 PM

ah, i thought protected streets were safe from bulldozing

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 4:57 PM

I think protected streets are safe.

Brock on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 5:10 PM

I don't know about that since I've bulldozed schools and parks. That just sounds bad.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 5:18 PM

damn, maybe I'll need multiple special buildings per million dollar road. Someone would have to be hard pressed to take that mofo out I'd think.

Bigworm on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 10:13 PM

the difference between listening to john gruden and jaws call a game vs Mike and Mike call a game is the same as jerking off to the unrated Wild Things in HD and jerking off to fat people fucking on a 56k modem.

God damn it these people are shitty.

Phil on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 11:43 PM

i mean you are download fatty porn via a 56k modem. not that fat people some how doing it on top of a modem. i dont believe the pci specs would support that kind of weight or trust.

Phil on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 1:31 AM

brent just needs 5 yds from LdT to win his fantasy matchup. Either that or another big raiders drive.

Phil on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 1:39 AM

ouch. or if the chargers get an INT on the last play he'll lose on a meaningless play

Brock on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 1:43 AM

So much for Douglas and Joe being high scorers.

joe on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 7:49 AM

Who won between us? It was looking bad at the half for both of us.

joe on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 8:28 AM

1 TD pass by Rivers to your guy, I'm guessin gI lost.

Jerome on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 8:30 AM

Great comment about the Chargers/Raiders game:

I heard merriman was trying to sack russell because he was inebriated and didn't want him to drive.

douglas on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 8:56 AM

i checked this morning before work but it wasn't updated yet, and my stupid work filter won't let me check yahoo fantasy sports, although i can check fox fantasy sports, so that makes sense. but i don't know who won. i'm guessing you're the high scorer for the week brock?

joe on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 9:31 AM

Brock will lose to me. It is inevitable.

Brock on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 10:20 AM

Phil and Brent put up some ridiculous numbers.

so, that reminds me. My buddy Jen told me about the Thunderstruck drinking game. You go around in a circle taking turns drinking. The person who is drinking switches every time they say "thunder". The person who gets stuck with the guitar solo is the one who is screwed.

The professor I share office space with at Bellarmine was listening to barry manilow's "Mandy". We were talking about it, and she said "I can't believe it was about a dog" The first thought that popped into my head was "Shut up about the dog, okay?" Fortunately I asked if she had seen Can't Hardly Wait, which she hadn't, so I didn't make an ass out of myself.

1) What are you going to say
2) say it
3) re-state in conclusion

Brock on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 9:30 AM

I think Jay is more concerned about the fact he has to read essentially a VCR manual to the class. If it was me, I would probably fall asleep giving the presentation.

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 9:35 AM

Oh I thought he was more worried about actually giving a presentation. I've always disliked public speaking.

Fantasy football pick ups and trades after week one per Colin Cowherd show in the line of top 5 Patrick Swayze moments:

5) Point Break – always there for you drunk at 3 AM like David Garrard...is David Garrard a better name then Jonny Utah?
4) Ghost – soft and will always make you cry like Nate Burelson
3) Roadhouse – Fast and strong and guys like him like Chris Johnson
2) Chippendale’s skit – Gotta fill a last spot on your fantasy team choose between Justin Gage and Louis Murphy
1) Dirt Dancing – Nobody puts baby in a corner and nobody puts Tom Brady in a corner…one of the cheesiest lines in a movie and Tom Brady is cheesy

Is it wrong to take someone elses newpaper to the shitter and then returning it to them?

douglas on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 2:59 PM

depends on if he's read it yet

joe on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 2:59 PM

in my defense it is the sports page from a woman not the sports page from a man who has already read it on the shitter.

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 2:59 PM

Depends on what kind of relationship you have with them. Good friends could care less, work colleagues should wait till their colleague had their turn first.

douglas on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 3:00 PM

at my old job there was a community newspaper, and one of the women i worked with was utterly disgusted when she found out the guys in the office grabbed a section to go shit and returned it when we were done. she must've thought we were wiping our ass with it or something cuz she literally flipped over it

she leaves work before me so is it okay to return it to her stack of old papers after she leaves or do I risk her trying to take her paper home with her at the end of the day?

Douglas - How did you get D. Henderson before me on waivers?

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 3:21 PM

It's okay to return it to old work papers.

douglas on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 3:31 PM

because i'm the man

douglas on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 3:31 PM

that's the best reason i got anyway

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 3:32 PM

When did you add him?

douglas on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 3:50 PM

I don't remember, I got 3 yahoo leagues, none of which i can access at work, so i think sometime sunday or monday at home maybe. i can't remember who the hell i got in any given league

Phil on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:05 PM

Wes, here's what happened.

Last week when you dropped Tamme for Austin you moved to the bottom of the waiver list. So at 7:30am Yahoo processed all the requests. I I grabbed Buffalo, Douglas Grabbed Crayton and you got Flacco. So once round 2 begin I grabbed Bush and then douglas went and got Henderson.

If you would have had the Henderson move ranked higher than the Flacco then it would have been processed first and you would have beaten Douglas.

It puts everyone on waiver on the weekend until today to make sure we don't have a situation where Brent and I are watching all the games all day long cherry picking players as people get hurt. Everyone gets a chance to grab a player.

The one thing I wish I had set i up to do was make the order reset weekly based on your ranking instead of having the previous week roll over.

btw, today and tomorrow all the players are FA so you can do whatever you want. It only locks them down once the games begin to the day after the games end.

DirectTV owners, if you have NFL sunday ticket call and say you will cancel and they will then offer you a discount rate per the EZ and Bozich show.

Phil on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:14 PM

they doing that because of the red zone channel that's supposed to come out?

Phil on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:14 PM

btw, insight isn't carrying the red zone channel because it would be too expensive. the cost?

$3 per customer. per year.

joe on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:16 PM

no clue, but the radio show with EZ and Bozich is saying in the future they may try it on the air. It was one of their interns or something that got the discount and want other people to try it and let them know if it works like they heard.

Phil on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:21 PM

if you got the balls, just call up insight and tell them you are going to switch to directv because of all the outages they'll give you a deal too

my big worry is they'll say "no problem, fucko - cable has been turned off! good luck with that!"

Brent on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:37 PM

Joe, so what do I need to do, call directtv and tell them Im going to cancel, but I thought I already signed up for the year, did they say what kind of discount you get?

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:42 PM

Philco - you going to be on MCS tonight around 10 or so.

Brock says he is getting hit by the guy with the most $$$ in Louisville so he wants to coordinate the three of us to take that bitch down a notch or two or ten. LOL

Yep, planning online destruction...durp!

Brent on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:51 PM

I tried to get Sir Coy, but all of his streets are protected.

Phil on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 5:09 PM

read this on the blog:
"we will be taking down the game on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 at 15:00 GMT. We anticipate that the game will be down for 12 to 24 hours as we reset and test the game. When the site comes back live, the game will restart."

also:
Q: How can someone bulldoze my bonus building? I thought they were safe?
A: A bulldoze card can destroy any building on a non-protected street, a bonus, or a hazard on your own street. Yes, a bonus building can be destroyed. A bonus building protects your street from a hazard being built on the street and protects all of the other buildings on the street from the bulldozer as long as the bonus building is still standing.

Q: Does owning streets that are connected to each other have any special power/rent opportunity?
A: No.

Q: When do I get payday? It’s been more than 24 hours since the time I registered/last received payday?
A: Rent is paid out once every 24 hours, which starts and ends at Midnight GMT. You need to log in or refresh the page to receive rent
