Well, we made it to the weekend. I hope you’ve had the chance to have a cold one or six today.

The NHL Draft lottery is tonight. My Canucks have the second-best odds of getting the top pick, which they won’t get & if tradition holds they’ll actually drop 5 spots, or they’ll win, draft the kid, and he’ll end up paralyzed or some such tragedy. In that honour, I’m choosing to drink rye.

Random NFL thoughts for a Saturday:

  • I don’t know if I’m prepared to live in a world of Browns’ competency. But I guess that’s what the regular season is for.
  • A team that employs Pacman Jones & Vontaze Burfict seems a natural fit for Joe Mixon.
  • I’m not shocked Mitch Trubisky got the Doug Flutie treatment when he got introduced & booed at a Bulls game Friday night.
    • I’m only surprised that the Bears didn’t think that would happen.
  • Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara welcomed Sienna Princess Wilson into the world on Friday evening.
    • Maybe now John Schneider might draft more O-line help.

Finally, I don’t care – Drew Pearson was the highlight of Draft Day 2.

  • It was proof the crowds was searched prior to entry. Otherwise, he should have been buried under D-cells like Public Enemy was buried under chairs at Hardcore Heaven.

  • I can only picture a nod of respect from Fozz, before returning to our regularly scheduled programming.

Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • NHL Draft lottery – 7:30PM | NHLN / CBC / Sportsnet
    • Pittsburgh at Washington – 8:00PM | NBC / CBC / Sportsnet
  • MLB: Angels at Rangers – 7:00PM | FS1
  • Fútbol: Liga MX:
    • Guadalajara vs. León – 8:00PM | Univision
    • América vs. Atlas – 10:00PM | Univision
  • AFL: Adelaide Crows vs. Richmond – 2:30AM | TSN2

I know it is extremely difficult to get work after getting your degree in the arts, but at least you won’t embarrass yourself with a project.

Then you may be doing it wrong!

So I got a pretty solid deal on a 4×8 tray and a 100 gal reservoir for my new hydroponics build ($140 total). I’m outlining for the frame this evening and putting together a parts list for the pump/drainage. Initially we were going to sort of ‘hide’ the equipment with like wood and corrugated metal or something like that. Since I’ve got to go through that headache for the builds in the front (going to do a few small water culture systems) I talked the Mrs into letting me 5150 this one with the only change being that, instead of red, it’ll be green.

You’re going to qualify it as mentally insane?

“On handling Trubisky now that he will be asked to become the face of the franchise …

Fox: “I don’t know that I’ve experienced that myself on a team. But I know good friends of mine that have had high-pick quarterbacks that they’ve developed. I go back to Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers — watching how that goes. There’s a lot of different ways to handle it. Jeff Fisher is a good friend; how he handled (Jared) Goff. So is it going to be easy? No, none of this stuff is easy. But we’ll find a way.””

Yeah, Jeff Fisher doing anything, let alone how he handled Goff, shouldn’t be an example for a homeless guy to follow. Bah!

I had just gotten to the brewery for open mic night when the draft kicked off. I turned to the guy next to me and said “I’m gonna laugh my ass of if Cleveland fucks this up and takes a QB this high.” Because I figured that was the exact kind of dumb shit move Cleveland would make. My mood took a sharp turn south just a few minutes later.

At first I thought you had said that on the open mic, which would have made it even funnier! In a gallows humor way I mean.

By volume of course. And most hondas are built in the US anyway, by USA people, who pay taxes.

Paying taxes is for chumps.

Jesus Fuck in the Hell is Trump insane. I mean he’s crazier than a shithouse rat. Also, he is definitely a Tom Brady fan. I konw this to be true.

“Let me tell you something. I love the Irish. Because they had it harder than the Italians. They didn’t have it as hard as the blacks. But they had it hard. So that’s why I hire the Irish and the blacks, because they’re tough, and they’re honest, and they work hard. Also, they’re tough motherfuckers. God bless ’em all.”

Back during prohibition, my great uncle was making some rotgut bathrub alcohol and was doing a landslide business. so one day, he’s out on the stoop and a car pulls up and the window rolls down and a boice says, “Hey, Milesy, get inside”

So they ride out to one of hte marshes aroud Sparrows point. And the guy driving says, “Milesy, I like you. Everyoen likes you. But if you don’t stop fucking selling that alcohol, we’re taking another drive out here, and you’re not coming back.”

The first time i got shitcanned from a job, i felt horrible. i was mopin garound the house and my dad was backing up the car. and he looked at me and said, “Remember, they canned my ass too when I was just starting out. Fuck ’em!”

Just what I needed to herar Hear.

When i was younger and playing lacorsse, my mom was a big supporter. because i wasn’t the greatest player in teh world. so i’m on the sidelines and my coach says, “Fozz, get in tehre.” And I didnt’ have my helmet. So I didnt’ go in.

On the ride home, my sweet, caring mother tore me a new one. I mean she lit in to me. “You better not ever do that again! Your coach calls you, your ass better be ready! I can’t beleive that. You need to get your act together.”

I never, ever let me helmet get out of my view again.

Here’s a story about why i think my dad is the fucking greatest guy in teh world:

SO he goes in to the Air FOrce becaue he’s poor and wants to go to med school. serves his time and goes to university of md. but he needs a sponsor from the neighborhood . sponsors says to him, “I will pay your first semester.” Dad goes off to med school. almost fails out. sponsor says, “I’m pulling my backing.” Dad doesn’t now what to do. He’s a guy from little italy with no parental support.

SO he says, “Fuck it.” Goes back to med school without a backer. Pulls a solid B. Backer comes and says, “Okay, you proved yourself.”

Dad goes on to graduate, becomes a succesful doctor, delivers over 3000 children. remains humble, teaches me all the good things in life. now he’s getting older and slower, still says he love sme after every phoen call.

fucking love that guy
