I enjoyed watching the end of the Tour De France today. The whole three weeks are a fun travelogue, but the combination of pomp & circumstance plus actual race reminds me that I should get back in the saddle before I bulk up too much & have to buy a stronger frame to hold me up. Also, thanks to recent medical issues, I have to wear ladies shorts to accommodate certain new realities of life. But it beats cancer.

A reminder that all teams should have their full training camps underway this coming week, and the Hall of Fame Game is just 11 days away, on Thursday, August 3rd. The only issue will be if they get the stadium finished on time, which is a prelude to the panic in advance of Atlanta’s home opener in Megatron’s butthole (™ Drew Magary).

Of course, the upcoming season means more of DFO’s A.Ward winning coverage of the NFL, starting with team previews. Look forward to my coverage of the Falcons, whom I compared to mayonnaise last year. WHAT CONDIMENT AWAITS 2017?!


Tonight’s sports:

  • Beisbol:
    • Cardinals at Cubs – 8:00 PM | ESPN / TSN2
  • Futbol:
    • MLS:
      • Vancouver at Portland – 6:30 PM | FS1 / TSN
    • CONCACAF Gold Cup Soccer 2017:
      • Semifinal #2: Mexico vs Jamaica – 9:00 PM | FS1 / UNI / TSN

I’m guessing the Gold Cup match will be most fun on Univision.

But you know the Trump government’s got a plan. ICE RAID ON VISITNG FANS!

Every 6 hours I run into 15 minutes of fighting to log in to the site. That seems like a lot of trying to log in but I have been hurt or sick for like a week and unless I get REALLY drunk I get at best 4 hours of sleep then I have to do something. Also I have a 102 fever and have been actively hallucinating most of the the night. This is unrelated but I had some fun ones and some that were awful.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Is it weird that I’m a dude and really like reading advice columns? Would I write an advice columnist about my predilection for advice columns?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Maybe you should write an advice column for the blog.

And yes, it’s weird that you’re a dude.

I can’t wait to not see the stupid fucking billboards for it anymore.

Drunk.
Going to Emerald Isle, NC for a week tomorrow. Anyone have any wisdom there?
I hate to say this, but I agree with Jerrah (shudder). You ain’t got SHIT on Zeke. Let him eat.

Romonobyl

I regrettably have your back on this.
It’s amazing how if a star player on a team you hate has off-field issues, you say HANG HIM OUT TO DRY AND SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE CHILDREN!!
But if it’s a star player on your team…
“Oh c’mon, let the guy play already!”

Romonobyl

By you, I don’t mean “you” of course.

Fronkenshteen

You think he gets 1, 2, or 3 games?

Romonobyl

I feel three coming. Get it over with early.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Emerald Isle proper? South (west) end of island?

theeWeeBabySeamus
theeWeeBabySeamus

Great pizza place in same strip mall type thingy, along with other various restaurants and shops. Big grocery store too.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Half hour drive to other end of island (Morehead City) is a buttload of other stuff. Sanitary Fish Market is just across the bridge. And it’s better than it sounds.

Fronkenshteen

Many thanks. I’ll stay in touch for real time suggestions. Me and the wife need some “time together”. How’s the drive?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Pretty easy, rarely much traffic. Especially on a Monday.
Used to have a place down there, pretty much lived there in the early 90s. Feel free to give a shout.

Right?

Romonobyl

All good sir!
Loved your Sunday Gravy post. Carnitas are the shit, nothing like Mexican pulled pork.
I hate when people jack a post and say “here is how I do that”…but here’s how I do that:

laserguru

That’s some fine looking pig you’re cooking there!

You’re doing the Lord’s work!

Romonobyl

Actually, I don’t use the grill for carnitas, I was just making those tonight and took a pic. The meat is actually boneless pork ribs. Not sure if that is widely available, but it’s all the shit for carnitas. It’s even already cut to the perfect size for your recipe.

Romonobyl

Damn Moose, did everybody bail on us already? I just got home!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Nope, just dealing with some other stuff too.

Romonobyl

How dare you have a life beyond our boundaries!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Meh, figured I’d give it a try.
Don’t like it much.

Romonobyl

Understood, it’s safer in here.

How many times do we have to tell you to stop pumping your shotgun in public?

Romonobyl

Just got back from seeing Dunkirk.
Wow, all previous reviews are on point to say the least. I’ll say this much, all other movies for 2017 may as well be silent, this film has the Oscar for sound effects and musical score all wrapped up.

laserguru

That was some intense film work. Amazing stuff.

So this is how my day went:

If you know what it means, then you know what I went through

Make your nerd jokes, make your 1st world problem jokes, make your bad luck brocky jokes

Lets just say I’m glad I wasn’t the one driving on the way home

Senor Weaselo

Didn’t get an Articuno today, but I did get a Lugia so I’ll call it a wash.

Brocky

I didn’t even see any lugia’s. fml right?

Senor Weaselo

The advantage of where I am is the dearth of gyms. In my neck of the woods, say, a half-mile radius, there are about 6 gyms, plus then any number of gyms a short drive away.

Also the Lugia fight is hilarious because it’s even larger than the others, so everything looks insect-like to it. Which screws with you a little on the fight.

nomonkeyfun

I’m sure Sessions is having a wet dream about sending the DEA to the Gold Cup match. Think of all the ganja smoking Jamaicans he can have arrested and all of the asset forfeiture possibilities.

I do have that little bottle of rice wine, but that’s not for shots as much as it is for self-combustion.

Here in North Dak Dak Dakota they seem to think that the Purple Bjorns are going to win the division no question.

King Hippo

It’s like the GoT writers had a competition to come up with the two worst characters to pair together in a relationship:
“How about the brainwashed eunuch slave with no personality and the interpreter who isn’t necessary anymore because her employer speaks most languages anyway.”

I’d let her shoot me. Wouldn’t you?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Only if she’d let me shoot her back.
Or on her back even.

Senor Weaselo

“Obviously we can’t put Michael Phelps in one lane and a great white shark in the other.”

Well why the fuck do we care then?

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

The Cubs are the only stupid team who can’t figure out how to put out barely-capable major leaguer Randal Grichuk.

King Hippo

it is much appreciate

/of course our dumb fuck manager let Wacha throw 119 pitches last time out for no fucking reason (5-0 win) so it gets tied back up real quick-like

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

So I went and jumped through all the stupid hoops to fix my little picture and it doesn’t appear to be fixed.

Why does WordPress make this so fucking hard?

Edit: So I guess cussing at it fixed it.

FUCK FUCK FUCK YEAH

Ever since their competition geocities bit the dust WordPress is just resting on its laurels.

See my answer below

Romonobyl

About to go see Dunkirk, I’ll report my opinion upon return. I believe I’ll find it to be a positive experience.
Oh, be forewarned. I sling out spoilers like a lawn sprinkler. Here’s an example:
Germany lost.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Modest proposal: I be able to drink blackout for the next ten years and then contribute again to society

Romonobyl

So you’re assuming Trump will win a second term?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Nah, then I would have just started drinking knowing there won’t be anything to worry about in ten years.

King Hippo

Looking forward to Most Glorious el beisbol Cardinals ruining the last bit of el weekend.

Also, where’s the instructions for updating avatars?

Step 1: Steal underpants

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

This makes more sense than creating a wp account.

Shogun Marcus

You must gravatar. Which is through WordPress, nawt DFO.

Romonobyl

Gotta log in to wordpress.com and create an account. Once in, upload your gravatar and hopefully your soul will remain intact,
