NFL News:

  • Getting an early start to missing part of the season, Vontaze Burfict is facing a suspension for an illegal hit back in the Bengals second pre-season game versus the Chiefs.
    • If it happens, his repeat offender status will result in it being five games, and cost Burfict $882,353 in lost base-salary.
      • Pacman Jones is already out for the season opener with a suspension of his own.
    • The Bengals have already indicated they will appeal.
    • Judge for yourself:

  • Someone convert Marc Trestman’s windowless van into an actual Rape Van: Art Briles is coming to Hamilton!
    • He will become the Assistant Head Coach of Offence (no offense). Their write-up lists all his impressive coaching accomplishments in the NCAA.
      • No mention, though, of why just an honoured coach is available at this date…
    • And just in time for tonight’s Ti-cats “Huddles & Heels” football clinic & dinner for female fans!
  • Brock Ostweiler is officially on the market: DeShone Kizer has been named the Browns starter for Week-1.
    • The Browns start versus the Steelers & Ravens, so if the kid doesn’t work out right away, they can throw Brock in…unless they cut him after the last pre-season game.
  • Due to Hurricane Harvey, the Texans are practicing in Dallas ahead of their final preseason game versus the Cowboys.
    • If the weather remains a factor, the game may be moved to Dallas.
  • Even though cut-down day is officially Saturday, starting today teams are allowed to begin reducing rosters of players they intend not to play this Thursday.
    • The rule changes allow team to keep up to 90 players until preseason Game-4.
    • Teams used to have to go from 90 to 75, and then 75 to 53. On Saturday, it’ll be a straight bloodletting from 90 to 53.

Finally, your reminder that Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension appeal is tomorrow. The current rumours are that Jerry Jones is still beyond pissed that any time is being handed out, especially considering that no charges were followed through upon. Meanwhile, I’m sure ol’ Rog has the one ring and palantir shined up good & ready for such an occasion.

  

Tools of the administrative trade these days.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Cleveland at Yankees – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN2

Well, it’s time to go sell beer,

I watched a HS FB game on ESPiN Saturday morning; a DB intercepted a fake punt and I thought ‘that name looks familiar’ so I decided to look him up – His father graduated 1 year ahead of me and was the best athlete at our school. I hadn’t heard or thought of his name in 20 years.

I like so much about the Orioles. I like their colors. I like that they’re from Baltimore. I like their original team name. I like their goofy bird logo.

I don’t know nothing about them but I like the O’s.

They suck. Don’t get attached.
I made that mistake and now I’m screwed year in and year out.

I don’t root for them (though, being in the East with the hated Yankees and Nazi Sox garners them at least a Dolphins-level of neutrality), I just like them.

Hot Teak ALERT!

No disrespect to everyone that lost loved or are dealing with the devastation of the hurricane. Its utterly horrifying what folks are going through.

But for the love of God could the National Weather Service give better names to these storms? Harvey? You don’t run from a Harvey.

You would get more people to abanddoned their homes if they would use a name to inspire fear in the local community.

Like “Hurricane ISIS” or “Hurricane Obama”…”Hurricane Common Core”….I mean it doesn’t take that much work to know your audience.

“Hurricane Get the Fuck Out of Town or You Won’t Get an Insurance Payout” has a nice ring to it

Its based off of names. Its better than Hurricane Eight. Hurricane H, or Hurricane Theta.

I would call it Hurricane In-Law, because once it shows up, it never leaves and it leaves the place ruined.

Okay, I’ve seen all the clips of Batman and Harley Quinn. So for intents and purposes, I’ve seen the movie.

If you’re expecting a serious Batman movie, skip this one.

Its a silly movie Maybe a bit sophomorish, but some jokes were good. Nightwing did great as a comic foil and Batman did great as the Comically Serious.

If you’re expecting the usual Harley Quinn voice (like Arleen Sorkin, Tara Strong or Hynden Walch), you’re not going to get it. Melissa Rauch voiced Quinn and her voice was different. If you can get the whole, “That’s not the Harley Quinn voice I grew up with” out of your mind, its okay. Maybe a bit too Brooklyn, Jersey or wherever Rauch was doing.

If you want to watch it, just remember: Its not a Batman movie. Its a Harley Quinn movie.

Gratliff

But is it as good as Harley-Green Arrow from the Injustice comics?

No. Nothing short of a Harley Quinn-Deadpool crossover can beat that.

Got a D plus last night! Due to the stupid keeper rules I didnt draft a kicker or defense. Will pick one up after someone blows their ACL or gets arrested in the next 10 days.

What about both?

Today I drove my kid’s car to work, as I planned to have it get the once over at the Honda place on way home (leave overnight since no parking pass until Wed).

For my good deed, I blew a tire (completely shredded) on the freeway, with my fucking cell phone still in the shop awaiting it’s snowflake magical part. I got to walk a couple miles to my kids’ orthodontist so I could call my mom (on her 68th birthday) so I could call and go back to wait for AAA for the tow.

And the week is only just starting!

Shogun Marcus

See below. I think I’ve got a great taste sensation FOAR teh Hippo!

King Hippo

Tastes great, less filling? Hey it sounds organic and sustainable, this new jerky plan!!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Was gonna say you shoulda called me, then read the part about the phone.
Get ridda ‘dat blueberry already.

King Hippo

if the motherfuckers hadn’t TOLD ME it was gonna be “a day or two” then I just would have bought an unlocked AT&T Blackberry off e-bay or Amazon. Now, I feel pot committed to this lunacy.

As long as I can get the Blackberry Classic connected to AT&T and my work e-mail, it will be what I have. FUCK THE WORLD and its inferior popular culture phones!@@

Mine is in the shop because of another kid’s car, that resulted in water in the charge port (long story)

You do know where BlackBerry phones were made, right?

Do they still make them, btw?

Something I hope to find out sooner than later.
She’s moving to the states I just found out.

Where?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Tejas, where rest of family is. About 25 miles north of Laredo.

ballsofsteelandfury

If I’m not mistaken, that’s close to Romonobyl country.

If she’s not a city girl, and I think she’s not, she will probably like it there.

theeWeeBabySeamus

She is most certainly not. Hates Mexico City and is all giddy to be getting out.

That being said, I still think she might be insane. Meh, what do I care at this point? It’s all about degrees now. Plus…dat ass.

All the Burfict jokes have a inherit flaw. Taze isn’t in Midseason Form. He didn’t hit one of the Steelers Offense Trifecta of Doom in a Late Season Game or in a Playoff Game that will allow me to move on with my life.

He hit a Chief. He hit a Fullback. He did it in a Preseason Game. Does that look like Midseason Form?

You can blame Pacman for that. Bengals would’ve played the Patriots if they won and Burfict might’ve been playing on appeal.

Hey, you gotta practice those hits!

Jerry Shogun got me an idea-is there a song that someone drilled into your head through some circumstance beyond your control? Mine is related to a holiday as a kid. Mom and Dad had just separated and Tammy Wynette’s greatest hits were featured on an 8 track…

Senor Weaselo

I prefer the Aretha version. “D-I-V-O-R-C-E, find out what it means to me. D-I-V-O-R-C-E… gonna take half your money.”

scotchnaut

She had a great lawyer/songwriter.

Senor Weaselo

Getting an early start to missing part of the season, Vontaze Burfict is facing a suspension for an illegal hit back in the Bengals second pre-season game versus the Chiefs.

Or for Vontaze Burfict, “Monday.”

Shogun Marcus

This song makes me homicidal. Most likely because it was one of the first songs Mama Shogun played repeatedly once she got her hearing back.
/all mamas and papas actually
//don’t even get me started on liberty valence or secret Asian man.
///yeah I know what I said. No I ain’t changing it.
