Even us atheists sometimes look at the Bible and must acknowledge that working on Sundays is not the way of the righteous–unless you work on the hospital, utilities, tourist, or food service industry. And also, fuck work: there are decent games on.

The League Cup final kicks off at 11:25 AM Eastern, with Liverpool against Manchester City. City is expected to field a side that is not composed of the deepest corner of its bench, and the South American presence in the team is strong. But Liverpool is managed by the German Elton John:

Via here

I just love that guy. Go Liverpool.

That game will be on beIN Sports, which yesterday reanimated a longstanding controversy thought to have been buried ages ago: Ana Cobos or Carmen Boquín? Lost in the shuffle were the considerable professional and fútbol chops of Cobos and Boquín. Which, of course, is the downside of us Hipanics: people just can’t look past our undeniable hotness. Just keep in mind that we are more than an expressive smile, penetrating dark eyes, and butts that just don’t quit.

On the EPL–yeah, they’re pretty much done by this time. La Liga still features Sevilla at Barcelona later this afternoon. La Liga does not get as much love as the EPL, which is the richest league and has more parity and is THE case for rampant global capitalism (Leicester!). Yet, their top teams do not fare well in European tournaments. Barcelona and Atlético Madrid are as good as teams get; the latter just stifled the most expensive club in the world yesterday: Real Madrid. I’d make the case that watching one of three top-eight team play in its not-quite-level domestic league promises to deliver top-shelf fútbol even in a blow out, but then again this is fútbol: anything could happen. And this is not the Bundesliga or Ligue 1, both of which are one team and the rest.

On the NHL, the Blackhawks host the Capitals t 12:30 PM eastern. At 3:00 PM EST the Hurricanes host the Blues and the Panthers are at the Wild, which shows at least one sports league has some common sense.

NCAA Basketball features a descriptive website and some semblance of defense. The NBA gimme a break! It’s Sunday morning and the Cup Final it’s about to start.

So keep the Sabbath, which us Hispanic folks hold on Sundays, not Saturday (sábado).

I know I told American Pie Story that I need to drink when around my family, but holy FUCK are they proving that point today. They’ve all decided to ignore their whining children, leaving said kids to whine all the louder. I am pounding back the whiskey and it is just not working fast enough.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I feel your pain.
Most of my family are….well, let’s just say they make it hard to not drink when they’re around.
The most fun is when the few who aren’t total consumption inducers show up and say…”Drunk yet?”
“No…but I’m working on it”, is the most common reply.
“Where’s the freezer vodka?”, they ask.
“In the fucking freezer dimwit…YOU JUST SAID IT!!!!!!”

I walked right up to the liquor cabinet, grabbed the Jameson, poured a shot and a Jameson.n.ginger and just got to work.

Oh fuck this stupid club:

He’s as good as gone. I sort of figured that he was going to be gone anyway because he’s a Boras client, but Mickey Mouse shit like this is why the Pirates will never be a consistent winner.

A $538,000 salary offer for a guy who won 19 games last year and looked dominant in doing so. That would actually be $3,000 LESS than last year.

Looks like they’re probably going to fuck up the McCutchen extension as well.

Dammit.

Holy crap. That’s a goddamn crime. He was a fucking beast down the stretch last year.
Scared the crap out of me whenever he started against the Cubs.

S’Ok…in a few years we’ll be glad to have him 4 hours southeast.

He’s a Boras client; he’ll be gone no matter what they do between now and when he hits free agency. The Pirates may as well just fuck around with him now for fun because no matter what they do Boras will have him in NY, Boston, or LA the second he can.

Is that a Church Brew Works pint glass?

laserguru

Absolutely gatdamn right it is!

I’ve posted that in a couple of Sunday Gravy pictures and you’re the first one to recognize.

I loved that place. My brother and I went there a couple of years ago while on our national ballpark tour. We caught a couple of games at PNC and we went to the Brew Works on the day in between.

Loved it.

WCS

I’ve never actually been inside, but, I’ve consumed more than what would be described as “healthy” and “socially acceptable” of their products.

I would mainline Celestial Gold and Thunderhop if I could, but, you don’t want bubbles in your bloodstream.

laserguru

It’s spectacular on the inside with all of the stained glass and the brew works right up on the stage behind the pulpit.

Got my short ribs marinating in sweet sake and gochujang.

Oh yeah:

Shit yes. I’ve been percolating a Sunday Gravy idea that involves a Korean style marinade (yes, gochujang is involved) and a rack of baby backs.

I feel Inspired!

Hey yeah right, I did end up running outside, and the wind wasn’t that bad. It was nice, probably in the 60s out there. Hope you’re enjoying your punchy thing!

laserguru

It was good. Might have bruised the knuckles a bit but a good workout nonetheless.

/looks around to make sure Dok isn’t here.

I saw one of the most perfect asses in history. Wearing yoga pants of course. She was doing these touch the toes things and I almost fell over and had a heart attack.

That’s one of the things you don’t get as much exercising outside.

She was about 3 feet from me. There are a reason that gyms have all of those mirrors.

The best part of getting the workout in is now I can start drinking guilt free

I tried watching True Detective again a few months ago, and I forgot that I binge-watched the first four episodes to catch up, and having half-watched it I never realized how unbearable McConaughey’s character was. I had to give up 15 minutes in because I was sick of his pretentious shit.

Goddamn, Pitt just locked Dook inside a port-a-potty, and tipped it over.

That was hilarious. Although the immediate “wow, apologies” from the announcer was kind of sickening. It’s just a word, people. Get the fook over it.

Yeah, I read that and was wondering why they were so impressed with a fake account that sent direct tweets to Trump, multiple times a day, EVERY FUCKING DAY, for months, until he finally noticed.

“HAH! We annoyed him until he noticed us! ISN’T TRUMP SO FUCKING STUPID?!”

If anything I hope this convinces people to stop giving any weight at all to anything someone tweets or posts on social media. It’s all stupid, useless shit. No one should care.
