NFL News:

  • Everything’s coming up Cowboys today:
    • A TRO granted by a NY court will allow Ezekiel Elliott to play Sunday versus the Niners.
    • Dallas will host the 2018 NFL Draft.
  • Noise:
    • NFL ratings are down 7.5% from last year.
    • Jed York said, “We need to be above petty attacks from anybody, because racial and socioeconomic inequality have existed in this country for too long. You’ve got to block out the noise and do your job.”
      • Why? Let’s check in with a failed USFL owner:

To which I add,


Courtesy Deadspin, some hero/masochist decided to make a video showing all the bumpers for failed TV shows Joe Buck has made during his 21 years (?!) of broadcasting baseball playoffs on FOX.

There’s a delightful combination of “who the fuck is that guy?” and “who thought that was a good idea?” wrapped up in the misery he’s forced to relay. It’s but a taste of what we viewers go through when he goes off on his tangents.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Game 4: Dodgers at Cubs – 9:00PM | TBS / Sportsnet
  • NHL:
    • Red Wings at Maple Leafs – 7:30PM | Sportsnet1
    • Blackhawks at Blues – 8:00PM | NBCSN
    • Canadiens at Kings – 10:30PM | NBCSN / TSN (Quebec) / RDS
  • NBA:
    • 76ers at Wizards – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN
    • Timberwolves at Spurs – 9:30PM | ESPN / TSN

I know MLB HQ has an extreme hard-on for a potential Yankees – Dodgers World Series. My thoughts?

C’MON ASTROS!

Me last night to Mrs. Wakezilla: Do we need anything from the store? I’m going to be busy after the gym tomorrow to go to the store.

Mrs. Wakezilla : we’re good

Tonight, on my way home from the gym, I just got this long ass list of food I have to pick up from the store. Fuck.

My god, this song is so Canadian:

If there’s a goal that everyone remembers
It was back in old seventy two
We all squeezed the stick and we all pulled the trigger
And all I remember is sitting beside you

You said you didn’t give a fuck about hockey
And I never saw someone say that before
You held my hand and we walked home the long way
You were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr

Holy fuckballz I just went “all Senor” by accident.

You never go full Senor! Unless you’re Senor! Or Nomonkeyfun with me at the Expo! Or… someone else with me at the Expo next year!

Anyway, what is the name of this sauce?

I humbly request to add myself to the list.
Ultra Mega Death and me are regular pals.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Literally, it’s the store brand. I keep a big bottle for flavoring soups/stews while cooking and it was all I had tonight. Food Lion store brand hot sauce.

Had never been that hot before so I kinda overdid the amount.

Huh. Weird.

Hold the fuck up. There were some good shows mentioned in those promos.
70’s show, the grinder (hilarious BTW), dark angel (JESSICA FUCKING ALBA FOLKS), and American Idol (fuck that show but it was good for Fox)

Also, they left out the Fringe bumper where they had one of the Watchers in the crowd:

Full disclosure, I wasn’t a Hip fan until about 4 years ago. As a teen, I thought Downie’s voice was too whiny and I thought they were over-played. Once they stepped out of the limelight and their stuff came on once in a while, I started to notice how good and just how bloody Canadian the lyrics were and grew to like them. Anyway, here’s my current favorite Hip song

ballsofsteelandfury

Fuller disclosure: I have no idea who the people y’all are mourning were. Obviously, they meant a lot to y’all and I’m sorry for your loss.

The band didn’t export well, but sold out hockey arenas and festivals here since I was in my teens.

Hit up yoo-toob for The Hundredth Meridian, the closest thing they had to a hit in Canadia’s basement. Damned fun song.

For all the people griping that the President promised some guy $25k in condolence money and didn’t pay up, I’ll have you know that he DID pay up. As for the fact that the check only just went out today…no, YOU’RE the incredible coincidence.

(In?)sane hockey rule change idea: if you score in a 4 on 4 or 3 on 3 situation, your guy comes out of the box early and you get a powerplay.

Don’t hold it in. You’re among friends here. Go ahead & tell us how you really feel.

AnthonyInTX

AnthonyInTX

I know you’re kidding, but…
I will readily admit that I’m a total homer fairweather fan of the Astros. I’m a native Houstonian, so when they do well I’m proud, but when they suck I don’t much care (as opposed to my Texans fandom, which is 100% 16-0 or 0-16).
But this sucks, fairweather fan or not. They’re one of the best-hitting teams in baseball and can’t manage jack-goddamn-shit for offensive production. It’s beyond pathetic and exactly what I expected as a Houston fan.
At least we have Deshaun Watson. He’s so fucking good and I’m terrified he’s gonna get broken.

ballsofsteelandfury
Member

Deshaun Watson is the definition of pleasant surprise. The surprise is not that he is good. Rather, that he is still alive and hasn’t been ruined by starting so soon.

Romonobyl
Member

I’m a few hours south of H-Town (which is never said by anyone from Houston) and not a huge based-balls homer, but I was the Astros #1 FAN! when they went up against the Sawx and won. That was my World Series.

Thoughts and prayers (seriously) to our Canadian brethren. Losing Jim Lahey and Gord Downie within a few dozen hours of each other is one hell of a punch to the gut. I’ll miss them both.

That fucking sucks. The Hundredth Meridian was one of the greatest air guitar songs ever created. Highly underrated band.

The Hip were one of those bands that totally flew under my radar for years, until I discovered them in my early 20s. Damn, they’re a good band. A real shame to lose Gord.
And losing Jim “Shit-[insert noun here]” Lahey is a bummer too. Trailer Park Boys is classic TV.
