So, based on reading this, 4:00 Eastern was the deadline when clubs must reduce rosters to a maximum of 53 players on the Active/Inactive List, retain contracts for practice squad eligibility, plus declare their PUP players. Then the cuts & trades can commence. From that time until noon the next day, all cut players are eligible for waiver pickup. At 1:00 PM Sunday, teams can name their practice squads. All player contracts must be submitted to the League office by 4:00PM on September 6th.

Enough babble – to the drinking & sports!


Tonight’s contests:

  • Football:
    • NCAA:
      • Louisville vs. Purdue – 7:30PM | FOX

So I just got back from the Woodstock Fair, one of Connecticut’s larger fall fairs and where I passed up the chance to, I shit you not, see fucking JOURNEY play the main stage before a bunch of sunburned red necks wearing shirts that say “You Stomp My Flag I Stomp Your Ass” while their 300 lb. mayo-stained wives each wrestle with 3-4 kids under age 7.

I also learned that I can no longer go on rides that involve a lot of centrifugal force. I went on two, (which is really just gambling with your life because there’s no way those rides are up to code and definitely no way that the carnie running it is sober), and left the second one literally sweating the nausea out. Old age is fun.

And how are the rest of you degenerates this fine evening?

I was joking about this elsewhere, but being celibate really does make me angry as fuck whenever I see losers and evil shitheads who are married or just who fuck, probably because it makes me think that all the excuses I’ve made not to try and hook up and fuck up chances when thrown at me were stupid mistakes made out of fear and self-loathing and this insane complex of not trusting anyone because, well, whatever.

Point is that I made a huge mistake and I would say lost out on my prime fucking years except that I’m probably in better shape to fuck at 38 than I was at 18.

Welcome to the meaning of life. Now go acquire yourself some money/power/status and you can be the evil shithead. It’s amazing the kind of ass these douches in Scottsdale pull by simply buying their own $30,000-a-year-millionaire bullshit.

I’m sorry. I meant to say that your day sounds excruciating between the mayo people and having to listen to Journey perform. And then on top of that you got nauseous. Ouch.

My afternoon was pretty good. I just walked around, but it was outside and I was moving and ended up doing just under four miles.

I can’t do rides because my PeyPey neck means my head would plum fall off.

Give the Troi Boiz credit, that’s no pussy schedule they got. WMU, Texas, Notre Dame. 9 PAC fixtures.

WMU defense is spent. Trojans will have to make a mistake for WSU to get a shot to win.

Dumb thought: There needs to be a D-I school in Pennsylvania Dutch Country that has a rivalry with Notre Dame so it can be the Fighting Irish vs. the Fighting Amish.

I served with a guy that was raised Amish. He convince his mother to pull him and herself out of the community it’s and let him get his GED.

It was always weird the stuff he didn’t know…like the Simpsons or the Moon Landing happening. After the military, he got his PhD in physics and now works for NASA.

I so wish we’d hire Charlie Strong.
Though around here, maybe not.
Fucking rednecks.

We only hire black (basketball) coaches who are morons, so the rednecks can go SEE??111!!

I really hope we’re wrong about Keatts.
But I know we’re not.

Maybe he can get out of town alive if he puts on a Sid Lowe jersey.

No, then everyone in the stadium must die in Hellfire.

There are schools that should not fucking exist, BYU, ND, Penn State, and Baylor are the most notorious but hardly alone. A just God doesn’t exist or else they and their entire communities would be wiped from the Earth already.

Should I get a smoker?

yeah right
Member

Depends on how close your neighbors are. It’s a massive commitment to time and smoke. Also, are you willing to tend a fire at 5 AM?

blaxabbath
Member

My neighbor is on the other side of the wall. I doubt they’d reall ymind the occasional session; I think everyone in my neighborhood likes when people are bbqing or smoking.

Also, I am willing to do some 5a tending. I probably am not willing to do such work every 45 minutes for 15 hours, if that is required.

I just made the best tuna sandwich I’ve made in a long time.

Also, I just read that Richard Posner is retiring. Yet Frank Easterbrook (Greggggggg’s even dumber brother) remains on the bench. Goddamnit.

I was reading replies about that photo of Ted Cruz supplicating before Trump like the bootlicking toady he is, and it’s beautiful.

Try a little pickle relish on top of that (2tbsps, give or take).
Gives a little zest.

I always add the pickle relish, sometimes I add some diced jalapenos.
