Your “Ain’t No Battle Like An NFC South Battle” Thursday Night Football Open Thread

Man, it’s already Week 9? Where did the time go? [looks at several empty bottles of scotch on the mantle] Oh, right. TO THE GAME!

Atl/TB-The Bucs D was on the field for a leg muscle-sapping 94 plays last week against a high-powered Raiders team-now they get the Falcons and their 30+ points per game O. This might not turn out well. But at least they can depend on the running game? Hah! The starting guy-no matter who he is-is a fourth stringer. I’m hoping it’s Antone Smith, the guy I picked up in my deep fantasy league when I was forced to drop Mr. Jamaal Charles. The “Glass Half Full Report” tells me that the fella has 4.3 forty speed and if qb Winston is forced to check down because the entire Falcons secondary is hanging around with wr Evans, then maybe something good might happen. The other secondary, especially cb Grimes, is hoping that wr Julio is limping and won’t take them down to the schoolyard. Look for a few longer shots from qb Ryan though. Pro Football Focus rates him as the best deep passer in the league and of his 721 yards on passes over 20 yards Julio has 39% of them. Hey Matty, as you learned last week, wr Sanu just might be open.

There it is. Oh, one other thing. Be sure to check out Free Ballin’ Football’s latest podcast here. Did Bill’s rash finally clear up? Did Nick really hit on his girlfriend’s mother at the Halloween party? Has Josh’s anti anti-deodorant protest alienated even more co-workers? Will Tim’s step-uncle finally sit him down for “the birds and the bees” talk? For the answer to these questions and some salient jibber-jabber about NFL football give ‘er a listen with the old ear holes.

LET’S DO THIS!

Is she the one who bit the dust? My neighbor and I played that game through back in high school (circa 1998), but, I’ve killed a lot of brain cells in the last 18 years.

Why the fuck do wrestlers do this shit to themselves. I don’t have a much better chance at 45 then 52, and my team is shit either way. I can’t even make 47 without running for hours. I’m 150 rn and my body doesn’t have anymore to lose. But I guess I’ll just barely not kms to get to 47, then try and find a way to tell my coach “no, you retard, I cannot do this once a week.” I love wrestling, but the culture around it is just so cancerous.

Its not just cutting weight, that’s just the most obvious one. Its the dickhead parents forcing their kids to do so much more work than the kid can handle, wasting talent by burning their kid out by the 7th grade. The level of live your dreams through your child is worse in wrestling than any other sport. You occasionally see it in football, but there aren’t many leagues in the nation that practice 6 year olds so hard they start crying. Its a year roundedness that just isn’t necessary, with $500 dollar camps that you “have to go to” or you’ll “fall behind.” the only sporting community that’s worse is traveling baseball, honestly.

You can tell them to fuck off if the sport you love stops being fun. From the little time I’ve known you, you do seem to like wrestling even with its insane starve everyone rules. If that’s not the case anymore let someone know.

Oh its still fun. If it was a situation where i had to cut 15 pounds a week for a varsity spot I wouldn’t complain. But my coaches are trying to make me do this shit when I can wrestle just about anywhere and make varsity. I don’t have a chance to win state at 145 or 152, so I just want to take the route where I don’t worry more about my weight than actually getting better and stronger. Also I made weight, I’m going to a mexican buffet in Denver that isn’t some white people tex mex bullshit.

It’s on my CM bucket list, along with the solos in Capriccio Espagnole, Don Juan, Ein Heldenleben, and the Dvorak Cello Concerto, especially because I’d want my trio cellist and close friend playing the concerto in a perfect world.

A classic from Phil Hartman before I close the tab.

In reference to entropy’s earlier post, I prefer my Feat a little more traditional.

While entropy itself never sleeps, sometimes the human host must, so I’m closing it out with this last little song about dreams, love, and loss:
