Your LawnClippers/Cowfellas NFL Football Open Thread

There’s but twelve minutes left in the Vikes/Lions game as I type this and it took some time but things are starting to heat up. (much like the mashed potatoes you just threw into the microwave because you made them way too soon). Although I very much enjoy Thanksgiving I really can’t recall any sort of positive memory associated with it. Perhaps it’s because of the alcohol-based dementia cozily nestling in but family get-together’s for me are like the CIA participating in the overthrow of Latin American leaders-get in and get out as quickly as possible and hope no one notices. TO THE GAME!

LA/Dallas: Tyron “Shoelaces” Smith may or may not be playing today but the t’udder offensive tackle is out. And according to the banner injury report, so is lb Sean Lee. Along with Zeke’s suspension that’s three difference-makers out for the home team. There is a bright side that I can see though-Mr. Elliott can make that stupid “feed me” gesture at his dinner table instead of out on the field. Hurray for small victories! De’s Bosa and Ingram have combined for 19 sacks and look to add a few more today. Their target? The DAKster. He’s the guy that barfed up a godawful game last week and the leader of an O that has scored just one TD in the last two tilts. The Chargers wr Allen went bananas last week and went off to the tune of [counts slowly] many points. I’m sure that rb Gordon will get his as well. This is last-gasp time for each of these squadoos to put something resembling a playoff team together so let’s see how it plays out.

It’s getting very close to “Drink A Lot” time. I can’t hardly wait!

Mash those potatoes, er, keyboards, folks.

Also, while we’re discussing The Pogues, this is their best song, especially when you’re in a good mood and enjoying the drank…

My grandparents are thinking of getting a jacuzzi and were asking my parents about it during dinner.

After about 10 minutes, my Grandma looks at my Mom and says “Have you ever had sex in it?” for the whole table to hear.

A lack of mashed potatoes is the least of the problems at that table.

I told myself no drinking until after I finished dicing, chopping and using the mandolin to make the gratin potatoes.
The fact that I have all my digits and no bandaids on tells me that was a wise decision.

I do like this Colored vs. Colored Jerseys though. The NFL should do this a lot more with the alternate jerseys (i.e. Bengals Orange vs. Steelers Black, Patriots Red vs. Dolphins Blue) when the colors are completely different.

Does Zekespension get Garrett fired?

Shogun Marcus

That’s not how Goodell is spelled.

Horatio Cornblower

The only way Garrett gets fired is if he bad mouths JJ, or if JJ needs a scapegoat. He’s a shit coach who knows how to keep his mouth shut and that’s the only reason he’s still there.

Don’t remind me. My fear is OSU lose to M*CH*G*N and Bengals lose to Browns. That may destroy my love of football. And happiness. And hope. And humanity. But not beer. I’ll need beer after that.

Unfortunately I’m in broadcasting which means 24×7 coverage. Except my role is normally exempt from shift work, until the higher ups decided to ax 3 people and bring in 3 new ones, who cant be on shift alone, and I got the short straw to do nights with a new guy all of November. Which was decided while I was on PTO. Which is the second time they’ve changed my hours/days while I’ve been on vacation.

/Rant.

When I was in broadcast our company forbade anyone from taking the Friday after Thanksgiving off because it fell during sweeps. They said this after nearly everyone made plans to take it off.

This sexual harassment/assault stuff makes me so glad that I work in a male-dominated industry. It’s not that I feel the need to assault women; but Sexy Friday would definitely be held against me at the settlement hearings.

We got recessed lighting put in this week. I absolutely love it. Our small house is so dark and the recessed lighting just changed everything. The con is that I can now REALLY tell the areas that need to get painted (mainly the hallway). So I’m wrapping up the deviled eggs I’m taking to thanksgiving tomorrow and then gonna start prepping the hallway for paint because we’re hosting Christmas this year and I only got about four weeks to get everything ready!
