A Canadian man-child of indeterminate age, he stays young by selling alcohol at sporting events and yelling at the patrons he serves. Their rage nourishes his soul, and their tips pay for his numerous trips to various sporting events.

NFL News:

  • Martavis Bryant has publicly said he wants out of Pittsburgh.
    • The once-suspended WR says that if Pittsburgh won’t use him, then they should trade him – or else he will play out his contract and move on.
      • His rookie deal pays him $600,000 this year & $700,000 in 2018, so he’s not going anywhere for a while.
      • The NFL trade deadline is October 31.
  • Marshawn Lynch’s suspension has been upheld.
    • He will miss their next game in Buffalo
  • The Eagles victory last night cost them Jason Peters & Jordan Hicks
    • Peters’ knees bent in two directions at once, blowing his ACL & MCL, ending his season & possibly his 14-year career. (You could feel everyone wince in the Open Thread.) Hicks blew an Achilles & is also done for the year.

Finally, former Colt WR & current Colt assistant coach Robert Mathis was arrested on a DUI Tuesday morning.

  • according to the Indianapolis Star, he blew 0.052, below the state limit of 0.08.
  • His driving behaviour, which included driving the wrong way on a one-way street and not signalling a turn, combined with the amount of alcohol in his system, is what led to the impaired driving charge.
    • Likely, a good lawyer will get that knocked down to community service & no criminal record.
  • “We are aware of the incident involving Robert Mathis last night,” the Colts said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time.”
    • When reached for comment, team owner Jim Irsay said, “Welcome to the club, son.”

With that in mind, let’s all enjoy a little War On Drugs.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB: World Series:

Wade Boggs still takes Pitt the Elder over Lord Palmerston.

Hey, the Simpsons softball special mockumentary’s re-running on FS1. Now I have something to watch!

Where did we pick up Emmitt Smith talking all funny and not knowing words? Is a specific appearance he made or what; I don’t think he’s THAT bad of a speaker.

*Trent Green stuff makes total sense as I got the text on a cursory Wikipedia search of the guy.

Filed my first ever complaint with the state attorney general yesterday. These two pricks are trying to scam me and I’m about to become a permanent fixture in their lives as I’m going to be petitioning the state licensing boards they belong to (bar & whoever dies PI licenses) every time I get a google alert mentioning either of them (and twice a year just for good measure).

Can you challenge them to trial by combat?

For some reason, that cake gives me The Thing flashbacks.

Is there any good TV to watch besides The Good Place?

The worst part about using Bumble is that there are many women who’ve lived a hard, HARD 30 years or even fewer. It makes me feel like an asshole, too, but it freaks me out seeing women claiming to be in their early 30s who look worse than my mother did dead in her mid-60s.

Do I even want to know what the fuck a Bumble is?

Slightly better version of Tinder.

Why are you reading Reddit in the first place?

I’m not going to pretend I don’t look like shit. I’m just saying that it’s weird.

The older you get, the more the pendulum swings in favour for men. Problem is, a lot of those hot women in their 20s do a shit ton of cocaine and fake and baked, leading to them looking 50 by their mid 30s. Then there’s the baggage

There are several good-looking women my age or older, but it still bothers me when I see someone who’s run life hard. Although I kind of admire them for having fun. That’s a whole other thing, though.

Senor Weaselo

Oh good, I’m all caught up. How goes it?
