Sunday Open Thread

Sunday action features the Euro, Copa America, baseball, and Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

On the European front, Turkey plays Croatia, it’s a funtime Ottoman Empire family reunion.

Northern Ireland plays Poland,

Germany plays Ukraine, I’m guessing it will go about as well for the Ukrainians as Operation Barbarossa did for them.

Copa America features Group B’s final game.

Ecuador-Haiti play each other, Haiti is eliminated from advancing further, but Ecuador can with a win and a losing result in the other game.

Brazil plays Peru, if they draw, they both advance, if one wins, the loser will not advance if Ecuador wins.

Penguins can clinch their fourth Stanley Cup tonight, while San Jose will try to force a Game 7.  Pens outshot the Sharks almost 2:1 Thursday, but a herculean effort by Jones allowed San Jose to live another day.

Enjoy the day.

My backdoor neighbors had their house painted the other day. I am colorblind so I see color less vividly so take this opinion with a grain of salt. It is Purple/Navy Blue (even I can see it’s Purple). I actually like how it looks.

Wakezilla

I kind of wish I did the Germany Euro preview just so I could use this somehow:

There was a sale at my grocery store for 48 cent 2 liters of 7up products. I bought 8 of their diet sodas because it was the same price as 2 2 liters of my normal diet coke. This is the first time I am trying them. I remember 15 years ago liking RC cola when I somehow was served it, I hope the diet version is ok.

It actually is pretty great. I will have to test again while sober, and also do a test with it as a chaser with whiskey

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

3 am shot taken. Wow. It seems great. I will have to conduct the test again sober but it seems to work

Yeah, that was awful. I am not looking forward to the aftermath either, I worry the rhetoric that will follow is gonna cause more problems in the near future

It was going down last night but they kept pretty tight lipped until late morning. They didn’t start releasing names of the dead until this evening. I felt terrible for the families who were waiting to find out, knowing there’s a club full of dead people but not knowing if their loved ones were one of them. That’s gotta be pure agony.

Wakezilla

Absolute travesty. And yet nothing will be done to stop the madness.

I have a friend living in Chicago who said she went out for 5 minutes (while wearing the hijab) and took the long way home because she didn’t feel safe in public.

JerBear50
JerBear50

I don’t know, I think the fact that he legally purchased the guns despite having been on an FBI watch list might be able to spur the gun control issue a little further. I saw a couple articles that said automatic weapons were used, but I think those were just bad reporting by people who don’t know shit about guns.
But as far as American/Islamic relations go, yeah, that’s not gonna be pretty.

Wakezilla

I hope so, but, if nothing was done after Sandy Hook, I think it’s safe to say the NRA lobbyists are going to ensure change doesn’t happen after this.

JerBear50
JerBear50

Yeah, but in Sandy Hook, the kid used guns that he didn’t buy. The fact that this one used guns he had just bought himself might push things. It may also face less resistance because he’s been investigated by the feds a couple times, yet that still wasn’t enough to keep him from buying guns legally. That and the fact that he was an openly pro-ISIS Muslim is going to cause some conflict among the more moderate (or at least more easily influenced) NRA crowd.

I guess what I’m saying is we’ll find out if their love of the second amendment outweighs their fear of pigmentation.

Wakezilla

All these media outlets & journalists who decry Trump to rack up views/hits are groveling to push the narrative that fuels his rhetoric in regards to Orlando.

Brazil is out. I wish I could do what this song wants me to do

Wakezilla

Had a pretty good Sunday Funday.

Took my wife to Cactus Club on English bay where we got a prime patio seat to people (hurray for living in a super vain city and it being bikini/skimpy clothes season!) and dog watch, which was topped off by surprisingly good food and alcohol. We went for a nice walk and then headed over to this Peruvian restaurant to watch Peru steal a win against Brazil, knocking Brazil out of the Copa America.

Watching it live, I thought it was a blatant handball. Watching it in slow motion, I can’t believe that play was actually reviewed and FIFA still thought it was a good goal. Holy shit, was Ray Charles the video goal judge?

Then finished it off with some more booze and watched the Pens win the cup.

All in all, it was a pretty good day.

Unsurprised

That sounds fun as Hell.

Brother, it was. . . . It was.

I completely missed Brazil getting knocked out of the tourney tonight. Fuck yes.

Wakezilla

It’s kind of funny because I was texting with my friends saying I’m shocked Brazil isn’t winning 9-0 when it was 0-0. 2 minutes later, the wank of God happened and Peru won!

The only Brazilian I felt bad for was Willian, who had a great game and somehow didn’t score 6 goals. That’s probably because his name is spelled W-i-l-l-i-a-n and not W-i-l-l-i-a-m.

Beerguyrob

Touchdown Seahawks!

Also, +1 for your good night.

Wakezilla

Speaking of the Hawks, I just heard Brandon Browner is back with the Hawks. As a CFL fan, I think that’s just wonderful. But as someone who has seen him get a bajillion of PI calls/game, well, I sure hope he’s a system player because the Hawks can’t afford those back breaking calls.

My mom can’t keep a steady job in the financial sector because of what Jon Oliver talks about tonight. She keeps all her clients job to job when she refuses to sell them shit they don’t need, fuck them over or be at all like a “financial adviser” should act like and is forced to move onto another firm. Her last 2 companies I don’t even understand their scam, but it is something to do with insurance. I know the industry standards for data secrecy though.

Life would be much easier if we didn’t have consciences.

I’ve spent all day pondering this because I’m too smart for my own good and actually care about people without having the will to, well, do anything at this point.

Wakezilla

I had a friend who hooked me up with a job interview with a company like that. It was a 2 hour interview and once it was my turn to ask questions, I figured out what they were doing and decided to never return there ever again. It’s definitely not for everyone.

I’m not sure which was more disappointing tonight, the Pens somehow lucking their way to a cup win or tonights GoT ep… Ok it was definitely GoT. And not just because I actually didn’t mind either team winning this series

Congrats on the win WCS and Sill!

3 off screen deaths, Edmure’s logic was retarded and tainted the Riverrun story, Arya’s story made last weeks plot look stupid because she was smarter season 1 ep 10, Mereen scenes just bad. I’m not saying it didn’t have good moments I just think it was the worst ep of the season

Sorry, Covalent! Hope you can drown your sorrows in good booze tonight!

Congrats to WCS and Sill! WCS, just so you know, that doesn’t mean you can get your wife pregnant every year and the Pens will automatically win the Cup, OK? I’m 85% sure it doesn’t work that way.

Anyone looking for late night fun?!? The AFL game between Collingwood and Melbourne will be LIVE on Fox Sports 1 tonight! ! Starts at 10 PM Pacific.

Elliotte Friedman is interviewing Mike Sullivan, and Sully sounds exactly like Super Dave Osbourne.

The CBC seems intent on interviewing every Penguin.

Senor Weaselo

They were the more northern team, so Canadian by default?

Beerguyrob

Not sure. According to the stats, 9 Americans, 8 Canadians, and the rest from off-continent.

Senor Weaselo

I meant Pittsburgh is more north than San Jose.

Beerguyrob

Oh, I know. Plus, they have Canadian hero Sid.
