Your “Happy, Snappy and Fappy” Thursday Night Football Open Thread

Hey, mirth-makers! So good to see you again. I’m hoping that the vast majority of you are enjoying this short work week like I am. That Monday off is always great. And then starting the week on the Tuesday, half-assing it on Wednesday (I work from home that day-it took me a while to figure out how to do it but it was highly recommended by the likes of some of you folks so I had to), putting in quality time today and finishing up tomorrow makes for a delightful way to bring home the artisan bacon. And then what?-watching football all day Saturday and Sunday. Some may care to do other things like be an integral part of their family, volunteer their time, what have you. Whatever. It takes all kinds, amirite? Listen, obligations come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and flavours-we all know this. As for tonight, the Thursday Football Gods have conjured up a lou-lou. Or maybe just a loo? Shall we break it down a wee bit? Sure. Let’s go…. TO THE GAME!

 

EAGLES/PANTHERS: Look at you, you gorgeous 4-1 squadoos! Very impressive I must say-separating yourself from the dregs of the NFC and everything! We should/might see what the Eagles are really made of tonight. There’s talk among the cynics (primarily godawful Eagles fans) that their record was built on a mound of cupcakes. Looking at their last three wins (over the Cards, Lawnclippers and Giants) there may be some merit to this. My take is that they’re doing something right because they sit third in the league in total offense. They know how to move the ball. Plus they must be motivated to gain even more ground on the 2-2 ‘Dacteds and the [snorts derisively]* 2-3 Cowsquirrels.  The Cam is rounding into his previous NFL MVP shape if one were to look at his last two games-he’s tossed for 300+ yards in each and seems to be over the shoulder trouble that contributed to 5 INT’s to this point. His play has to be spectacular because despite young McCaffrey busting his TD cherry last week the ground game was responsible for a whole 28 yards on 28 carries. I don’t math well but that doesn’t seem very good.

Bust that comment section a new a-hole, buckaroos!

*It’s all that I have left. Just give me this!

I participated in a political survey over the phone today, and I fear may have been brainwashed to support a gubernatorial candidate. Do you take booze for deprograming or ice cream?

No, just a regular Republican I’ve never heard of. I agreed with his views, but when the person said “Jon Husted completely support President Donald Trump and his plans to Drain the Swamp. Do you Strongly Agree, Somewhat Agree, Somewhat Disagree, Strongly Disagree or No Opinion this this statement?”

Me: “What’s higher that ‘Strongly Disagree’?”

New Zealand tv does that for the nfl as they do not sell that much ad time.

Watching the Cowboys choke on Sunday reminded me of when they gave up a 26 point lead to the Packers in 2013. The best part was that Rodgers was out injured, so the Cowboys got beaten by Matt Flynn.

Here’s the highlights video, if you’re looking to kill time before kickoff. One of my favorite Jordy Nelson catches is at 1:30

Oh hai guys

Tonight I made Beef Stroganoff, with lots of onions, mushrooms, garlic, and tarragon. It’s deliciously creamy, though I think I might have let the beef brown slightly too long.

What are you all eating/drinking tonight?

Spinach lasagna I’ve probably fouled up badly (first time making it) and only beer.
I’ve given up liquor for the time being and I’m out of weed for the time being.

I’m off solid food, but the 3-hour nap required a Mexican Coke (rare sugar exception). Plus the usual vicuprofen goodness.

I could live with this as well.

But now that I’ve dropped Dickson to buy time to wait on Kelce status, I’m sure he’ll have another career night and Funchess will blow out his achilles or something.
