IE 7 is Wise

So I've been testing out Microsoft's next operating system, Vista, here at work. Well, upon visiting the Sci in IE7 I received a warning. Oh yes, this is looking like the most secure version of windows yet if it knows to keep the fuck away from us. My hat goes off to you, Microsoft..

* saw burkets
* saw drunk chick's titties. titties = 10. girl = 4 (according to jay)
* girl rode on big jay shoulders
* said girl seranaded to she's lost that loving feeling
* crazy slutty girl with bono glasses shaking her slutty ass running from big jay
* big jay talking to only non-slutty drunk girl. asked for mints. phil was proud

all around, a good evening. although I'm sure I owe more money up at o'shea's.

Jay on Saturday, June 03, 2006 at 10:18 AM

Phil, the girl I was talking to wasn't drunk.

Jay - so what all happened on Saturday and where did you see Dawn at? I am assuming you guys stuck with the usual bars on Baxter?

Jay on Monday, June 05, 2006 at 12:06 PM

We saw dawn on friday at o'sheas. As for phil on saturday night, I think he told me that Dawn was out of my league, but I should become friends with her so that I can hook phil up with some of her hot friends. I don't know though. It was hard to understand him. Also, we saw homeless bible guy at white castle again, where phil called some random girl she-devil repeatedly.

Bigworm on Monday, June 05, 2006 at 12:10 PM

Phil on Monday, June 05, 2006 at 12:11 PM

i can translate the dawn thing, because I know exactly my theory there. I wsa trying to say that while dawn might not be an opportunity directly, there is indirect opportunities with a girl like that.

Phil on Monday, June 05, 2006 at 12:12 PM

and by opportunities I don't mean for me, I meant for big jay.

The way phil was on Saturday, I wouldn't be surprised if he was still drunk. Plus it's about lunch time so he's bound to go to O'Sheas or b-dubs and get a few beers to drink over. Ever have one of those weeks where you were like "you know it'd be easier just being dead. lol"

I'm going to trivia Wes, since you asked. Philo and myself are always staple trivia competitors. Wade and Brent have been pretty damn regular players as well. We're really coming into our own. Not by winning, but at disgusting other teams with names.

I swear Pitino never ceases to amaze me. UL has 22 home games next year.

And they wonder why Louisville dominates the home attendance record every year.

Happy Birthday Wing Commander

"We,the men who are about to die, salute you."

douglas on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 10:34 AM

pitino can lick my balls, did u read that article yesterday about him bitching about the strength of their schedule and how he wanted a softer schedule?

http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...=73246837909039

"I'm hearing things I don't like out of the schedule once again," said Pitino, who didn't elaborate on where the schedule stands now. "So I'm going to suggest we go into a new conference if the Big East hits us again."

I can't believe this guy, now he's trying to fucking give ultimatums and shit? There was an article today about how much money UofL is making now that they're in the Big East, but Pitino doesn't get as many wins as in CUSA so he wants to leave? Fuck him

Phil on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 10:38 AM

i wonder about the 22 home games. add in there the 3 games up in ottowa plus the 8 conference road games that would mean louisville would be going into the conference tournament with 35 total games. Of course, 2 of the home games are exhibition games so they'd only have 33 total games that count. Add in 4 games for the Big East tournament plus 6 for the NCAA championship and Louisville would have three more games than anyone has ever played (which of course assumes they'd play for the national championship, which is unlikely).

douglas on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 10:39 AM

UK plays that hard of a schedule EVERY year, they consistently have the toughest non-conference schedule. Why? Because they're UK, to be the best you have to play the best, instead of fucking North Carolina A&T and whoever the fuck else UofL plays outside of their conference. UL made this huge push to be in the Big East, and now Pitino's trying to put conditions on their entry into a conference that benefits their entire fucking school? All b/c he has to play the best teams in the coutry a couple times? Fuck him!

douglas on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 10:40 AM

and for the record, UK took back the attendance record last year from Syracuse, UL is third.

Church on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 11:03 AM

U of L needs to seriously upgrade their schedule and 22 home games does not augur well for this upgrade. The one thing I like about UK is they play one of the tougehest non conference schedules year in and year out. I think U of L is playing Arizona or Texas next year in the Jimmy V classic, but other than that the only non conference games aside from UK mentioned by Pitino are UMASS and New Mexico State. Hell, this is why they stunk it up last year. Would it be too hard to add in some quality non conference games. Play WKU, IU, or Xavier. Playing Ohio State on a neutral site could be an awesome game. Maybe UL-OSU and UK-UC on a neutral court.

The thing I loved about U of L when Denny was coaching is he would play any one any time and cared more about winning in feburary and march than december (Tubby schedules this way). Pitino doesn't do this. There are so many teams they could play that could help their team and avoid another embarassing season where we cannot win a damned road game.. Also, he cannot bitch about the Big East schedule. UCONN will be down since everyone from their team declared for the draft, Cincy will be adjusting to the Cronin system. He should try to argue to get Georgetown, who will be the best team in the conference next year

Jay on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 11:20 AM

Happy birthday, commander. And I totally agree with Matt.

Brock on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 11:28 AM

College basketball talk in June! Thank God for Matt Church. By the way, UConn just stole a 7'3" dude from us, so they may not be as down as you think. Boone was a lazy, ugly POS, and they probably told him to stay in the draft after they locked down Thabeet.

I used to not follow recruiting too much, but Cronin is pulling out all the stops, and when you are competing for recruits with UConn and Duke with a first year coach, I'm thrilled to see what he'll do in the future.

Did they officially switch to a full round robin this year in the Big East? or is that on for next year? UC missed out on some cupcake wins by not playing some of the conference, which ultimately screwed them (well, almost as much as Jihad).

Pitino needs to stop playing the "we're not any good" game. His recruitin class is top 5 every year, you aren't fooling anyone Rick. If you can't win with top talent, then you are just trying to cover for coaching shortcomings which isn't flattering.

I will give him this, that whole article was tongue-in-cheek, so Douglas going apeshit may have been a little blue-blood rage.

I'd also like to thank Ohio $tate for finally scheduling UC after 43 years when they finally have a down season. I guess that national title defeat really stung the boosters.

Happy Birthday Damien... I mean Wing Commander.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 11:54 AM

Sorry Brock UK took the attendance record back from Syracuse this year.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 11:57 AM

This past year UK's non-conference wasn't as great in the years past, but that is the UK attitude. We play anyone, anywhere. Fuck taking UC on neutral...I would like to schedule a home and home with them.

Duke doesn't schedule any big home and home games and that pisses me off to no end. Come to Rupp Dookies! We will gladly go to Cameron.

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 12:01 PM

Philco - take it for what it's worth but:
"#U of L approved an increase in the cost of season basketball tickets for what is expected to be a 22-game home schedule in the coming season. Tickets for exhibition and regular-seasons games will increase $1, from $25 to $26, while a three-game exempt tournament at home, the NABC Classic, will jump from $30 per game to $32."

Bigworm on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 1:40 PM

It is just too easy to make fun of Tennessee.

"Tennessee quarterback Jim Bob Cooter was suspended indefinitely Monday after campus police arrested him on a drunken-driving charge."

Brock on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 1:56 PM

Ok Wildcat fans, we get it, you lead in attendence... my point was that UofL was high up there in attendence mainly due to the incredible number of home games. The only reason Syracuse is even in the top of attendence is b/c they play in a football dome. I guarantee Duke would be #1 in attendence if they played in the Greensboro Colliseum.

"We play anyone, anywhere" is a bullshit statement. Just b/c you play Kansas, UNC, and Indiana... doesn't mean everyone. Where's Crieghton? Where's Bradley? If power conferences really want to end this mid-major uprising, they need to play (and crush) the little guys during the season. UC did a home-and-home with Illinois St, played Northern Iowa the past 3 seasons, and regularly schedules champs of mid-major conferences while everyone else is playing High Point, Prairie View A&M, and McNeese St.

UK avoided UC throughout the '90s.

When you are UK you can call the shots...and no offense..UC doesn't have the same recognition for basketball that UK does...so you have to go out to the little guys, whereas, we say "sure we'll go cross country to play you"

Phil on Tuesday, June 06, 2006 at 10:25 PM

so my new neighbor is moving in, and part of her move in is to replace the kitchen floor (note: this is an ex-stripper previous living quarters, so that's probably a good idea). So I'm helping drag up the big heavy bastards her flooring get stuck too, and her dad is just laying them up against a stove that they've moved to the living room. So at some point the dad almost has a heart attack, so I'm dragging these things around myself.

Well, once we got to the 6th one, I didn't think the stove would hold. But he kept stacking. On the eigth one BOOM stove tips over and drives a mop into the wall with such force that the red handle causes this huge mark on the wall.

I found this hilarious.

So I start helping pick these up. The dad decides to stack them up against...a fridge they moved into the living room. At this point I took it upon myself to stack 4 on each side.

I'm such a handy man.

douglas on Wednesday, June 07, 2006 at 9:31 AM

it'd be funny if someone started throwing shit at the window, kinda like they did when david blaine put himself in that box for a week. or if a bunch of people went up and mooned her. or like if a bunch of drunk guys came up to the window so they could be seen in the camera and started throwing up the shocker or something.

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 07, 2006 at 9:31 AM

Jay - I think we saw your ideal woman at trivia last night. Marc was checking this girl out in the corner booth and I have to agree she was a cute girl. Pretty face and thin and then she stands up and her ass is completely disproportional from the rest of her body. I am talking this ass was huge. I am talking like Bigfoot unique. And like Bigfoot, her ass evaded my attempts to photograph it because like Bigfoot, no one will believe you unless you had the proof.

Of course this prompted several call outs from Brent like "I wonder where she got if from"..which prompted my response of "She got it from her momma". And I am pretty sure, Brent was nearing the point to where he just wanted to go try and take a bite out of that ass.

What were the recommendations for my best man toast? This is what I got so far cut from the script of "Very Bad Things"


Back home we use to play with these sparklers. Out
In the street we'd light 'em up. We'd hold 'em up to the sky
and watch the explosions of light. Sparks. And this one person would be all..."Get
ready"..."watch for it"..."here it comes," here comes the "wahoo"
The wahoo you ask?
The sparkler would burn hot, then hotter, then even
hotter...and there would be one moment of pure burn when that little
sucker would cook just perfect. Perfect. It would only last a second,
but that second was it. It was it.
The wahoo moment.
You see Man...burning at his absolute. To
see all the forces just come together, just right, you know, just in
perfect harmony. That's what I'm driving at. You get me?
You know what we are doing here?! Paul and Becky are love pumping.
They are protecting all that is sacred and beautiful and in sync with
poetry and sunsets and little newborn babies. You are walking the
walk. This is it Paul, the real stuff. You love this woman. Love is
second to nothing. You love Becky. Becky loves You. I love me some me. This whole place is full of love, and nothing - absolutely nothing - supersedes love,
man. Nothing.

phil, anyway you can get this full article:
http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blo...%3dolney_buster

Phil on Wednesday, June 07, 2006 at 2:58 PM

the article is pretty boring:

The powers that be in baseball claim ignorance about steroid use in the 1990s. We didn't have enough information, they say. Red flags didn't go up until the summer of 1998, they say. The media didn't do any stories, they say (as if that is a litmus test on whether they should do their jobs). We didn't knowingly turn a blind eye to the problem, they say.

They cannot say that now, as another performance-enhancer scandal breaks. Check out the stunning details contained within the affidavit on the Arizona Republic Web site: According to court documents, Jason Grimsley acknowledged using human growth hormone after feds anticipated a delivery of the stuff to his home and confiscated two kits. The IRS agent who prepared the affidavit also quotes Grimsley as saying he thought "boatloads" of players were getting HGH from the same source he was using, and Grimsley allegedly named names of players within the game; those names are blacked out in the public version of the affidavit.

Court documents do not equal a conviction, but the information within the affidavit is going to frighten folks within the game. Just like we knew that the details within the Ken Starr investigation on Monica Lewinsky would leak, you can bet that the blacked-out names in this affidavit will get out, and remember -- Grimsley played with the Phillies, the Indians, the Royals, the Angels, the Yankees, the Orioles, all over the map.

According to the documents, Grimsley told investigators he has used human growth hormone exclusively of late. Something like this was inevitable, because the current science of testing and the framework of baseball's drug-testing program effectively funnel all would-be cheaters toward the ramification-free option of HGH

Phil on Wednesday, June 07, 2006 at 2:58 PM

...continued:

Human growth hormone is on baseball's banned substance list, and at the same time, there is no reliable test to detect HGH. But there are means of deterrence, and baseball has not taken those steps. It's as if the Players Association and Major League Baseball told everybody not to speed down the HGH highway and then failed to deploy any radar guns to catch the would-be cheaters.

Labs are still attempting to develop a reliable test for human growth hormone; in late February, some experts said they expected to have that test in place by late summer. But, as one baseball executive noted, "We've been hearing that for years."

What the Players Association and Major League Baseball could do is to draw blood samples and urine samples from players and store them indefinitely, and tell the players: Look, we don't have a test for HGH yet, but when we do, whether it's in six months or six years, we are going to test your blood and your urine, and you will be held accountable for what we find.

But there are no blood tests of any kind within Major League Baseball's testing. The samples are not stored indefinitely; they are eventually discarded. This could be a strong deterrent, the big stick to hold over the head of the would-be cheaters. And baseball is not using it.

In fairness, Major League Baseball has been the driving force behind the current testing system; Bud Selig deserves credit for pushing the union this far. It's time for the player representatives to instruct union Don Fehr and Gene Orza to step up and do what they failed to do in the '90s and earlier in this decade: Adopt all possible means to protect the interests of the players who don't want to take performance-enhancing drugs.

Phil on Wednesday, June 07, 2006 at 2:58 PM

and more:

In the '90s, players who didn't want to take steroids were compelled to consider the use of the drugs because they believed -- rightly -- that players they were competing against for jobs were using steroids. Some clean players who wanted to stay clean became dirty.

We have stepped back in time now. Same situation, different drugs. Unless the union leadership finally becomes vigilant in its effort to clean up the sport, clean players again will be forced to consider taking performance-enhancing drugs. Players, executives and scouts strongly believe there are those using human growth hormone in baseball, and now we have the first tip of the HGH iceberg. It's time for the commissioner to scream for an immediate adjustment to the testing system -- to include blood tests and sample storage -- and for the Players Association to serve the silent majority within the union and embrace the necessary changes.

The powers that be have learned that their failures of the '90s have led to the diminishment of the accomplishments of an entire generation. A dark cloud will forever hang over the legacy of Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and other stars. The commissioner and the union must do everything possible to eliminate the shrouds of doubt that will hover over the next generation.

This time around, they have full knowledge. This time around, the media has sounded the alarm. This time, they know what the problem is and how they can attempt to solve it.

The fallout from the BALCO case forced the union leadership to take its steroid problem more seriously. Let's see if the Grimsley case forces the union to address the HGH problem in the same way.

Phil on Wednesday, June 07, 2006 at 2:59 PM

the US might give the Czechs a good game since the C. Repub star player is hurt right now. I think the media is just saying that just to give the US some kind of hope.

If the czechs are healthy they will beat the US 5-1. They have a high powered offense and are too talented for the US. (IMO)

The only team that can contend with Brazil are the Germans and The Czech Republic. And when i say contend with Brazil, I mean getting beat by two goals or less.

Bigworm on Friday, June 09, 2006 at 9:17 AM

In this summer of Kentucky basketball discontent, the debate that never ceases is whether Tubby Smith has proved himself worthy to continue to sit in the coaching seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

The ever-carping membership of the ATB -- the Association of Tubby Bashers -- is filling up the radio talk shows and Internet message boards with all the ways in which Tubby, his NCAA title, four Elite Eights and 77-plus-percent winning percentage at UK have been shown inadequate.

So, for a day, let's play along.

Let's take the standards the ATB applies to Tubby and see whether we can find a college coach who would be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

We know Kentucky fans of the ATB persuasion have no stomach for 10-loss seasons under any circumstances.

So a coach who has six 10-loss years in an 11-year head-coaching career -- including four of his most recent five seasons -- could never be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

Which just eliminated Tom Izzo.

We know Kentucky fans of the ATB persuasion want a coach who consistently plays on the final Monday of each season. After all, Kentucky basketball -- which has won the massive total of three NCAA titles since 1958 -- is all about national championships.

Anything else is utter failure.

So a coach who, over the past five NCAA Tournaments, has lost four times in the round of 16 -- including three times as a No. 1 seed -- would never be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

Which just eliminated Mike Krzyzewski.

We know Kentucky fans of the ATB persuasion want a program that is immune not only to bad years, but immune to any years that are less than stellar.

No cyclical rebuilding, no bad team chemistry and no recruiting mistakes allowed here.

So a coach whose most recent five seasons have yielded an NIT berth, an NCAA second-round loss to Butler, an NCAA first-round loss to Xavier, one Final Four trip (which ended in a blowout loss in the national semifinals), followed by yet another trip to the NIT would never be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

Which just eliminated a second coming of Rick Pitino.

We know Kentucky fans of the ATB persuasion have no stomach for coaches who win a lot of games during the regular season only to take No. 1 seeds into the NCAA Tournament and fail to cash them into Final Four berths.

So a coach who's lost short of the Final Four as a No. 1 seed a whopping four times would never be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

Which just eliminated Roy Williams.

And Lute Olson.

We know Kentucky fans of the ATB persuasion have no tolerance for hearing about the unpredictability of contemporary college basketball. Don't talk to them about a sport in which rosters are in constant flux. And where the championship is decided in a one-and-done tournament in which luck is a humongous factor.

No more excuses. They want a guy who consistently gets it done in March. Period.

So a coach whose five seasons prior to this past one included five straight years of losses on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament to lower-seeded teams would never be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

Which just eliminated Billy Donovan.

And we know Kentucky fans of the ATB persuasion have no stomach for a coach who can lead a school with Kentucky-like resources and tradition yet not consistently make the Final Four, even if he's fielded several Final Four-caliber teams.

So a coach whose most recent 14 seasons of coaching at a school with Kentucky-like resources and tradition have yielded a paltry one Final Four trip could never be fit to sit in the seat that Adolph Rupp made great.

Which just eliminated another pretty good coach.

Yep, if advances in medical science ever make reincarnation possible, then by the professed standards of the ATB Adolph Rupp would not be fit to sit in the seat that he himself made great.

That story was written by Mark Story of the LHL on June 9, 2006. Yeah I totallly just violated some copywrite laws.

that's an absolutely perfect article, did u see this in the courier today about the Tubby Bashers?

http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...008/1002/SPORTS

It's fucking unreal how some fans want to get rid of the winningest coach in the last five years, there is not a single person we could get at UK that would do a better job

Bigworm on Friday, June 09, 2006 at 9:34 AM

Yeah....I think the UK fans that call for that shit don't really know the history of UK. Granted we are the most winning program in the history of the NCAA, however, we haven't won the most titles. Tubby has had the highest winning percentage in the past several years (besides this debacle of 2005-2006). UK fans are spoiled....they want national championships year in and year out....yeah that would be great, however, there is a lot of parity in college basketball and it is hard for UK to land some top out of state talent for some reason.

Marc on Friday, June 09, 2006 at 12:50 PM

Ok, I have to tell you all this because it made me laugh in class.

My teacher was talking about the Quakers and how they were a tolerant society and didn't like the class hierarchy of the times (like when one of lesser social standing would have to tip their hat to someone of higher standing). She then when on to say that it was not like how we treat class todoay. (Then she paused and said) "Well I watched My Super Sweet Sixteen (on MTV) for the first time yesterday. But BESIDES that....Has anyone ever seen My Super Sweet Sixteen? I hate those spoiled little girls. Their Parents sometimes spend up to a million dollars to throw them a sixteenth birthday party. I just hate them. (pause, without missing a beat or seeing the funny) ...So let's get back to our discussion on tolerance."

The other funny thing is that she is completely right, those girls on that show should all die. If I ever have a daughter and she wants something that extravagant, I'll make her watch the show. And if she doesn't understand how bad these girls come off and how the show seems to make its case against elitism and extreme and annoying displays of wealth then I will have to do like Abraham, and kill my own kid. Anyway, the story brought a smile to me in a class where I thought I'd have none, so I shared it with you all.

Oh and Jay, that doesn't count towards the bet.

Bigworm on Friday, June 09, 2006 at 1:21 PM

Okay...the Germans are up 2-1 at halftime, but it could easily be 3-2 Costa Rica. CR has several guys who are incredibly fast, couple that with the Germans playing an aggresive 5 man trap on the back line (i.e. if CR gets behind that line is is a 1 on 1 with the striker and the goalie). Costa Rica had 2 offside calls that would have been a 1 on 1 scenario. It will be interesting to see if the Germans continue this type of defense.

Also, the Germans are having to be extremely patient on the offensive end because Costa Rica has 10 guys they are defending with. Good strategy on their part to help slow down the German fire power.

Well they know how much "Stoppage Time" is added before the half is up. I think they announce it like 2 or 3 minutes before the half is up. It is hard to know because the refs keep the stoppage time on the field.

I may be interested in a fantasy league, but I don't know any of the players, I've just followed teams. But what the hell, apparently sports knowledge is not required for fantasy leagues... just look at our baseball fantasy league where you are winning if your batters get beamed or intentionally walked, yet the pitchers aren't penalized for earned runs, only giving up stolen bases. Its fucked up.

But at least their isn't a million points given per yard for kick returning, because that would be blasphemous and I'd have to bitch about it for eternity.

I got home and my mom ( I mean my ...roommate) shushed me while watching Oprah. She was watching a story about 3 brothers who turned in their dad for being a bank robber. Apparently one of the brothers was a cop. Now their dad never shot anyone, and basically got away with the crime. The money was insured. And I understand they wouldn't want him to do it again or to get hurt or hurt someone else. But turning him in? I mean I know society is happy for them doing so. But if your cooky dad gets his fix robbing banks and never hurting anyone, let him be. (The christmas presents must have been awesome.)

Oh and one of the comedian trying out for Last Comic Standing had a funny joke. "Fantasy Sports is the D&D for meatheads who used to beat-up the kids playing D&D." Those it'd relate doublely for you dorks.

Oh, the best things happen AFTER 2 A.M.

Okay, so some of you know that a few of us spent a part of the night outside Flannagan's kicking it old style at the table outside on the sidewalk.

Then AGAIN, Jay and myself (along with Brent this time) got left as the others went home. Debating whether to go to a free cover bar or call it, we went to Outlook. Brent ran into a girl who he knew (a lesbian,with a nice body) and we all started talking eventually. Many hilarities ensued. Including: All 3 of us arm-wrestling the lesbian, the lesbian telling Jay he just needed to get laid (and then a pause), Brent asking her if she wanted to take the bullit, running into Brent's dad with a MILF (not Brent's mom), the MILF straddling Brent in front of his dad and whispering about how she remembered how Brent fucked her daughter, Brent commenting on how he should have fucked the MILF before his dad did, the lesbian asking me where we stared out and I replied "at Flannagans. But we left when it got gay.", my recovery from that statement, The lesbian trying to hook us (3 dudes one chick) up with the five girls sitting at the table behind us, a girl grapped my ass as I was ending the night walking tomy car. That's all I remember right now. Jay? Brent? anymore?

Hanging out with Jay, Brent, and myself after 2 A.M. is officially now legendary and the best times.

Brent on Saturday, June 10, 2006 at 10:52 AM

This is an entertaining article...How the US could (not will) win the World Cup. Here is my favorite part from the article.

Semifinals
The toughest game the U.S. has ever played takes place July 4th in Dortmund, and pits the U.S. against Europe's toughest team — Holland. Yes, the Dutch have made it through and knocked out the hosts for good measure, which works in the Americans' favor.

German fans, upset over their team's ouster, show up in droves to cheer on the Yanks against the Dutch.

How do the Americans beat a team with Ruud van Nistelrooy, Arjen Robben, Edwin van der Sar and 20 other world-class top-caliber players? That's a darn good question.

Yep.

Let's just say they do.

Australia is going to move pass Japan (up 3-1). Japan was leading this game 1-0 until all hell breaks loose at about the 84th minute...then AUS tied it and hit 2 more goals before the 90th minute. Don't know all the details so if anyone else does please fill me in.

From 1-0 the Aussies scored off a long throw-in that some how landed at Cahill's legs in front of a basically open net and he put it in. Pretty lucky goal. The next goal around 88 minutes Cahill fires one from way down town and nailed it. Beautiful shot. Last goal was pretty run of the mill with the Japanese guys basically confused as to what happened in the last 10 minutes.

Onyewu just needs to be careful, we cannot afford losing him for the next match. Our midfielders need to get it together, if we can control the midfield, we will win. Koller cannot score if no one can get him the ball.

Other than that, they did didn't attack at all....nor were the passes even good. To equate it, imagine a QB throwing behind the receivers or leading them way too far. They need to get their shit together and pray they get two wins against Italy and Ghana.

good story about flaming shots. picture it, o'shea's back bar, douglas, bmac, and one of my UK buddies drunk as piss. We order flaming Dr. Pepper's, however when the shots are served, there's Dr. Pepper, but not flames. We asked the bartender what was up with that, and she said they don't light shots on fire anymore b/c of liability issues. To which my response was, okay, well I'll light it my damn self then, at which I proceed to pull a lighter out and add the 'flames.' The bartender had a horrific look in her eye, however she said nothing, which probably wasn't smart on her part. She asks if we'd like straws to take the shots, and I immediately decline, saying 'real men drink fire.' Bad idea. As I picked up my shot and prepared to shoot the Flaming Dr. Pepper straight, fire and all, my ass in a drunken state spills the shot on the bar. As the shot spilled, the 'flames' did too, and they immediately shot up several feet in the air as the bar set fire. All three bartenders immediately ran over water and doused the fire, at which point the original bartender said "That's why we don't light shit on fire anymore." Hysteric laughing ensued by myself, BMac, and my UK buddy, and we proceeded to order a much safer shot, Jagerbombs.

Bill Walsh College Football 1993, which of course be the game were I threw for 1000 yards AND rushed for 1000 yards in one game with Cordell Stewart. Here's the hint, ace formation with big TE, quick outs, roll to your right. The defense was so stupid back then that they didn't have a safety in a cover 2 or anything so the CB was on an island. Either he picked up the WR who would basically run an out and up or he'd go after you. If he went after you a simple lob over the CB would be a touchdown every time, otherwise you could haul ass (cordell was rated a 99 speed and agility) down the sideline as the CB stayed with the streaking WR for at least 40 or 50 yards a gain. It got to the point were I was grabbing punts, running to my own 1 yard line just so I could have more offensive yards.

Yeah, the summer of 1993 was a good one.

Yeah Burkett, on the outside, my eyes got a little big when she said that and I apologized but on the inside I was curled up in the fetal position sucking on my thumb. The surgeon was pretty cool about it, actually, I think the other nurse caught more shit than me, the lead tech said something like, "You have to watch everything all the time, that table is your responsibility." Luckily it wasnt a big ortho surgery or something, where they have 50 different pieces of heavy equipment, there was probably about a total of 30 pieces (forceps, scalpels, gauze, needles, and thread) but the surgeon said something to the effect of, go stand by Terry, (anesthesiologist) and contaminate her.

Wes, thanks for asking. Yeah I got two letters of recommendation sent out this week. One I had to ask a professor to redo becuase the admissions office said they didn't get it, and another one just in case. They will go nicely with the other two the sworn oath, a vile of blood, and all the other rediculous obstacles they made me go through.

I thought I was going to be late for my first test today because under the Poplar Blvd overpass on the Watterson there was some car off the the side SERIOUSLY smoking. I mean they had TWO firetrucks spraying water on the engine and that fucker was still smoking like Waco. Too soon?!

Trivia is at 7. It's be at 7 for years. it did used to be at 8, like 3 DAMN years ago. SO Adrian bring your big architectural brain to trivia, joe bring your Tony winners knowledge, and Wes bring your chemistry...as we could have used it last night.

Wes, as mentioned at trivia, this is a great unknown. Since I have actually been giving my digits to chicks, I have been receiving calls from unknown numbers to the cell, but no messages. Could this be them calling? Not sure. I am going to change my VM message to the following:

Hi...this is Wade's phone. If you are someone I know, just leave a message. If you are a lovely female that I met at a bar please use the following menu options:

Press 1 if you were drunk.
Press 2 if I was drunk.
Press 3 if we both were drunk.

Next menu:

Press 1 if you would like to go out again.
Press 2 if this is a booty call.
Press 3 if you want me to go away and die.
Press 4 if you have pulled a restraining order.

Next menu:

Press 1 if you think we had sex.
Press 2 if you know we had sex.
Press 3 if you think you might be pregnant. (Routes to lawyer for paternity testing).
Press 4 if you have experienced any genital discomfort (Routes to Chris Burket to prescribe ointment).
Press 5 if you "need a little more of that somethin' special"

Anyway you get the point.

Most of the calls have been 417 and 644 prefixes and appear to be cell phones (damnit, hard to lookup). Maybe I should just start calling them back. My opener is, "Hey sweetness, missed your call, thought maybe you were a little nervous about leaving a message for yours truly...well don't worry baby, I found your number on my phone, reverse looked it up on the Net using AnyWho, looked up your address and mapped it on Google Maps, drove on over, and am sitting out in front in the black SUV waving at you. So, you want to spend a little time with me now, or later?"

Bigworm on Wednesday, June 14, 2006 at 9:08 AM

Do you know funny yet somewhat creepy that would be all at the same time. In fact, we have this pretty sophisticated mapping software at work that a lot of people (by a lot I mean the few who actually know how to use the mapping software, need digitial maps and know how to use coordinates) are now loading into handheld GPS systems. We can load everything in that bad boy and I can add layers of roads, maps, elevation changes including road grades and we can even do some 3-d modelling so when you are driving to her house the picture on the GPS system and the road you are driving down look the same.

Wow, yeah definately creepy.

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.

Marc on Wednesday, June 14, 2006 at 1:29 PM

If I was mayor of all of louisville, then i'd dig up Shively and put it on hover-projection boosters and have it hover above in the clouds so we wouldn't have to see it. Sad thing is it would then become too cool and be like Cloud City in Star Wars.

Marc on Wednesday, June 14, 2006 at 1:37 PM

In fact maybe we need to do that with FOurth Street. What's that Boston? You have a great history and great bars and a diverse culture? Yeah? Well we got bars hovering above.

Of course then you'd need the flying car that we were promised to have in 2000. Drunk driving hom form the sky-bars (as i'm calling them) would be interesting. Because you know some drunk jackass would forget to turn on his hover boosters and just plumitt to his death. Maybe the place needs to hover over water. I ask you though where is the flying car?

While you think about it, here is a great old Kevin Smith done short movie about the this question, "whers is the flying car?"

Speaking of Ridin' Dirty.... Word on the street and internet is that a 23-year-old woman is suing a popular Houston rapper for $25 million dollars because she claims he infected her with HIV.

Possible Houston Rappers
Chamillionaire
Slim Thug
Pimp C from UGK
Pall Wall
Lil' Flip
Mike Jones

Slim Thug, supposedly has even gone so far as to pass around the results of his HIV test to the media in order to prove that he's not the culprit. Hard to get groupies with those rumors.

there was a good documetary on VH1 last night on females in rap videos.

joe on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 9:51 AM

it mainly revolved around the chick that wrote the book "Confessions of a Video Vixen" Karrine Steffans was her name. Basically she is a dumb slut that was in rap videos and every rapper and posse member ran through her. She wrote a book about how bad their behavior is and degrading to women the rap industry is. Dumb slut let them run through her and she took it like a champ.

douglas on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 9:54 AM

yeah, i've seen that, pretty entertaining, now she's making a ton of money off publicly degrading herself, but i guess that's what rap hos do anyway

Marc - I knew it wasn't Tone Loc or LL Cool J....and I knew there was a "K" in the name. Sorry I listen to the 90's occasionally on my XM Radio and it shows the Artist and Song for most songs, so I should have been able to squish that nonsense, there, but came up a tad short.

Philco - Tokyo Drift is out this Friday, so in honor of that I watched The Fast And The Furious last night.....and yes it is JaRule that busts out the "It isn't how you stand by your car, it's how you race your car" comment.

Okay, Wes and Brent I was wrong on the LL Cool J thing. My freshmen roommate always played stuff that sounded similar, or at least from one genre. Anything by LL Cool J, Eric B and Rakim, De la Soul, Fat Boys, etc)
And when I was thinking of a video with LL Cool J and a girl singing back-and-forth, I must a been thinking of "She represents Queens,I was raised out in Brooklyn."

Bigworm on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 10:15 AM

Philco - Okay so I am now browsing the car section on ebay motors and I am thinking that it probably wouldn't cost all that much to buy an import car and fix it up, something decent nothing over the top. Not like we need to race vettes or anything like that, just enough in it to peel the paint off the car where the 18 year old has added the loud muffler on it.

For the record, I was the one who said the line was said by Ja Rule, and not Hector (which is what Phil originally said).

I watched Last Comic Standing last night and one guy had a kinda funny joke I thought the sci might like.

"So I brokeup with my girlfriend because she was cheating onme. Isn't that the worst? It sucks. My friend told me, 'It could be worse.' Yeah, I guess it could be worse if I walked in on them having sex and the guy then punched me in the face,and then I left and got a ticket, and then I turned on my car radio and Creed was on."

I long a long setup, just to make fun of Creed.

Wes, I am not sure, and I don't know where I know this from, but I think the DSG system requires the whole transmission assemble and control module since it essentially uses solenoids to shift the gears as you use the left and right paddles.

On a side note, you could just get a Quaife or Hewland straight-cut full sequential gear box like the rally cars use with a big heads-up display with the gear you are in for the windshield.

Maybe when I get a job and have some actual money i'll do the Century club at Flannagan's. I do drink beer now and still am often around Flannagans. Wes made me think of it when he was out the other day. Only Phil and Wes completed it
Phil -mug #158 "A Chocoholic but for booze"
Wes - mug #151 "The Man the Legeng"

I'm already there AT LEAST once a week, so I could do it some to not to put on any more weight than needed. If I do this (when i can, moneywise of course) I'm thinking the slogan
"You don't love me, you just love my Natty Sci."
but i think its to long to fit on the mug. so i'll have to think of something different...IF I ever get around to actually doing it.

Phil on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 10:04 PM

Icing still exists. Two rule changes made it less frequent though: If a linesmen deems it was because of a miss passed they can wave it off (I think they always could do this, but I think the criteria was made more flexible) and the other thing is that the team that ices the puck can't make any substitutions during the stoppage.

douglas on Friday, June 16, 2006 at 1:45 PM

u're right, i'm sure the atmosphere of a world cup soccer game would be fun, a bunch of drunk idiots yelling at each other, what's not to enjoy about that? but that's the atmosphere and the fan, not the game itself. so the fans are cool, but the sport is still gay

hmmm, no new sports guy today it seems. disapointing. they were running his World Cup diary from 2002 (http://proxy.espn.go.com/espn/page2...=simmons/020614) earlier though, which includes this section:
Quick plug for the World Cup: I'm not a soccer guy by any means, but I enjoy any sporting event when the following things apply -- 1) Players are playing at a world-class level, 2) the level of intensity is through the roof, and 3) the crowds are fantastic. I could watch a kickball match if those three things applied; hell, I could watch two guys playing dominoes. So for anyone to say that they can't watch the World Cup because they don't like soccer ... I just don't get it. I can't think of a more dramatic sporting event.

For instance, Monday's South Korea-U.S. match featured the best crowd I've ever heard for any sporting event. I mean, ever. I'm not kidding. They spent two solid hours screaming their heads off, organizing cool chants, rocking in rhythm, maintaining an unreal level of intensity ... it was amazing to watch and hear, giving the game almost a primal feel. The fact that the United States held on for a 1-1 tie was even more amazing. Just an unforgettable game. And if you can't appreciate something like that, I don't know what to tell you.

douglas on Friday, June 16, 2006 at 2:26 PM

on that note, the domino championships were on espn2 the other night, which was far more interesting than soccer

we were discussing the price of a good joke and how the setup is so perfect that you have to take it no matter what even if you are going to cause trouble by saying it. Mid conversation, girl walks up and hears something stupid and spits water out and I said "cute" followed by her saying "it was either that or come out my nose" guy across the hall throws out a "she's a spitter." It was beautiful, the impecable timing with the risk factor of a blow job joke at work.

the ref from the Italy v USA (Jorge Larrionda) game has had his Wikipedia article edited over 200 times today before the Wikipedia people had to lock the article.

My favorite revision:
Jorge Larrionda (born March 9, 1968) is a football referee from Uruguay. Larrionda is a referee at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. s a bass fisherman and football referee from Uruguay, who has absolutely no clue about how to referee a game. His performance as referee during the Italy-USA match clarified for many why Uruguay has failed to make any significant contribution of note on the world stage, in sport or otherwise. Hopefully, Larrionda will be driving a taxi in New York City by year's end.
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...;oldid=59158649

other good additions:
Brutal referee, angered by his man-lover totti being relieved in the game, attempted to throw it for the Italians, who's men frequently mate with other men.

Jorge Larrionda (born March 9, 1968) is a football referee from Uruguay. Larrionda is a bad referee at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

Jorge Larrionda (born March 9, 1968) is a football referee from Uruguay. Larrionda is ostensibly a referee at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, although his grasp of the game's rules is tenuous at best.

Jorge Larrionda (born March 9, 1968) is a football referee from Uruguay. Larrionda is a referee at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Larrionda is a fucking asshole.

Jorge Larrionda (born March 9, 1968) is a football referee from Uruguay. Larrionda is a referee at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

He was previously suspended for "irregularities," which is why he was barred from the 2002 FIFA World Cup. However, he was allowed to serve in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. His performance in the June 17, 2006 game between the United States and Italy was massively corrupt. Hopefully, angry gamblers in Uruguay will give him what Escobar got in '94.

He hates Americans and is follower of Bin Ladin's Taliban.

He is also the only referre in World Cup finals history to have written for the gamer magazine Nintendo Power. (?)

In football circles, Larrionda is known as 'Jorge-pedia', a nick-name acquired because of his love affair for surfing the online encyclopedia shirtless while eating a half-gallon of chocolate ice cream.

Marc, this is a quote from Jessica, the chic we hung out with the other night at the Outlook Inn, this weekend the "Transplant Games" were in town and she ran in one of their races, not sure if she is a transplant...anyway I thought it was funny.

"The race was a 5K, and yes, I DID DOMINATE. Organ donars are weak!!!I only tripped two, and just made fun of the rest. I yelled stuff like, "who do you have to sleep with to get a kidney around here?" No one laughed, but I thought it was funny. Next year I am going to wear a lung around my neck, and sell to the highest bidder."

This is actually a remake of a documentary, so it might actually be pretty good. The football director is the same guy who did Friday Night Lights and Jerry Maguire, and those movies weren't too bad in terms of the football being played. Although FNL did just use footage from real games.

A team of British scientists has developed a mathematical formula to determine the perfect booty.
"The perfect female derriere has firmness to the touch and a resilience that prevents undue wobble or bounce, yet looks soft with flawless skin," said Dr. David Holmes, a psychology lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, who devised the formula.

(S+C) x (B+F) / (T-V).

First, assess her assets on a scale from 1 to 20 (1 being worst and 20 best) in the following categories:

* S = overall shape (a ripe peach being just about right)

* C = circularity (rounder is better)

* B = bounciness (less wobble is preferred)

* F = firmness (too much push to that cushion loses points)

* T = skin texture (no cellulite, please)

Then calculate this:

* V = the ratio of one's hips to waist. Finally, do the math.

The perfect score is approximately 80.

"Slender thighs and hip-to-waist ratio of 0.7 will frame the perfect bum, well, perfectly," Holmes said.
