Sunday Morning Appetizers

Morning Everyone.

I hope you enjoyed college football Saturday. TCU needed a miracle play to beat Texas Tech. I’m looking forward to that Baylor game since it looks like each side would be able to score 80 points. Zona got thrashed by UCLA. The state of Oregon is a sinking ship amid a sea of misery and woe. Teams ranked 20 through 25 keep going down.

But enough of that, now it’s NFL Sunday.

First up is Carl’s Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week, where Carl analyzes the Eagles woes. He then picks the Eagles-Jets game.

Carl’s Pick, Week Three

Carl is 0-2 for the year.

As for the games themselves, here is the most up-to-date 506 sports maps. There are some changes since Wednesday.

Week Three, Broadcast Maps

I do find it amusing that Raiders-Browns will be shown in as much of Ohio as in Texas. Oregon still holds this week’s “Holy Roman Empire” crown with four games with random non-contiguous broadcasting areas.

Bit of a rough day after the 1PM games in my opinion.

What I love most about the 506 map is the seemingly random blips that occur. Like the swath during the early CBS game that gets Oak v Clev, or even better, the “market” that gets Raiders Browns, but doesn’t get Bears Seahawks. Is there really that much of a Johnny FF fanbase in that area?
Plus, if LA won’t watch SF/ATL, why does anyone think inland empire would watch Ari/Dallas? The latter is the better game, but still.

Lets go Mets.

I know that I will piss off a number of commentists during October with that slogan.
Especially the /baseball? crowd

Mets/Dodgers 88 rematch boyeeee.

Hopefully one of the Mets starters will do a quick blog post about watching Zach Greinke out in the bullpen throwing curveballs like a high schooler.

I dont quite get the map either. New Mex gets SD/Min when there’s a Pittsburgh game out there? Fake Yinzers are easily the third biggest fanbase in this (every goddamn) state.


Here’s looking for another Jay Howell moment.

The soundtrack to my morning:


Sounds as if made for opiate accompaniment.

On a side note….

I love how Mom pulls out three….THREE….empty Rx bottles. Kentucky teens must not be really bright I guess.
Teach your kids about the pitfalls of Rx drug abuse….REFILL THAT SHIT WITH OTC TYLENOL YOU DUMB KIDS!!!!


It’s a concept album – by about 15 minutes in (“Positive Contact”) it picks up nicely.

Reminds me of that movie where they demonstrate the West Virginia mating call (shakes prescription bottle).


This is Sunday morning music, at least according to my upbringing,

Hey the Bears play after 1pm…oh.

Also, every Sunday morning should include this album in its entirety (hipster douche warning issued):


But will it change my life?

But it will give you some additional pondering material while one looks at one’s shoes!

Or, some anti-Shins…

It’s a day when I’m not entirely enraged that I have to pick a kid up from a “homework project” session at 5 EST.

I use quotes because teenagers are fucking liars, and they know better than to randomly ask to go to a friend’s house on NFL Sundays. That said, going over at 11am gives her plausible deniability.
