Air thine grievances here, y’all.

Birmingham Bowl – Texas Tech v. South Florida (Noon, ESPN)

IIRC, this used to have Papa John attached to it, surely a relief to him not, now that the city done sent all them daaaahhhhkies to vote for Sen-elect Doug Muthafuckin’ Jones!!  No, I’m not tired of saying I told you there were enough good Southern folk to prevent Senator Paedo, even in Bama.  As for the match, the line is Bulls -1.5, and I have no action as I have no feel.  I wanted to, but cannot.

Military Industrial Complex Bowl A – Army v. San Diego State (3:30, ESPN)

I think Army got invited to this mofo the instant they hit 6 wins.  Get used to all 4 of those irritating USAA commercials in heavy rotation.  I put a wee bit of money on the Black Knights moneyline (+205, line is +6.5) as this is their designed exhibition, after all.  And they are used to defending the run.

Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens (4:30, NFLN)

The Ratbirds have morphed into the NFL’s flat-track bullies, as evidenced by their 2nd half curb stomping of #ThePauls last weekend.  One could argue that the Humps have the advantage of extra time to prepare, but the flip side of that is having lost in the Gravy Boat on TNF to fucking Brock…Brock…dun dun dun dun dun Brock Lobster!!  Ha ha, that’s just sad.  Enough time has passed that we can make fun of Coach Cancer for just being shitty at his job.  Which he really fucking is.

When You Think K-Mart Is Fer Snobs Bowl – Appy State v. Toledo (7:00, ESPN)

Not exactly saving your best for last, JV NFL.  Anyway, having bet against the Happy Appies before and lost big, I also put a medium bet on their money line ($75 at +205 line is also +6.5).  I know nothing about the MAC, really.  This gives me reason to watch if/when the late NFL fixture is horse excrement.

Christmas Suggestions

Very few things make me feel Christmas-y, here is one.  Depressing indie-folk singer songwriter Sufjan Stevens, who is also a left-wing hippie-ish Christian (a quasi-Methodist like Hippo) and his nearly 5-hour collection of Christmas songs.  Some original, some traditional with his own tweaks.  Ukelele, of course.  If you must go to a gathering, suggest this instead of the usual musical fare.

So, does James Harrison sign with the Patriots and make a game winning INT or strip-sack against the Steelers in the AFC Championship?

Not if he has any dignity.

Everytime I see App St. play I can’t help but think of that snl sketch, Appalachian Emergency Room.

I wonder if there isn’t some synergy involved that they’re playing in the Dollar General bowl.

Tilda Swinton can get it*.

You’re going to blame *her* for a casting decision? I thought I knew you.

That’s strange, I just watched that movie for the first time this afternoon. It’s like if you’re thinkin’ about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly someone’ll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate of shrimp, out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin’ for one, either. It’s all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

Watching Doctor Who episode “The Name of the Doctor”. Had a thought.

The 45th President: What I did, I did without choice.
The 1st President: I know.
The 45th President: In the name of country and security.
The 1st President: But not in the name of the peace. And logic. And sanity. And hope. And love. And I KILL YOU! I KILL YOU!
(dragged away by other Presidents)
The 1st President: LET ME GO! HE HAS TO DIE! I’LL KILL HIM!

I’ll miss Capaldi, but I’m curious how they will do a female Doctor. It should be interesting.

Network probably asked Trent, “hey man, people seem to really like what Tony Romo brings to the table when he commentates. Do you think you can sprinkle in some pre snap calls. You know, let the people see what you see?” Trent, “uh, okay.”

Later in the game.. Trent Green, “here comes the blitz from the Ravens.” Ravens D- plays prevent after going up 17 points.

In the last few weeks I’ve heard other ex-player color commentators starting to copy Romo’s schtick.
