Hey, at least Iggles/Raiders was pretty good last night!  What treats does Day After Santa have to offer?

Heart of Jerral World Bowl – Utah v. West By God Virginia (1:30, ESPN)

I think the Cousinfucker QB is still ded, which explains Team Secular Big Love coming in as significant favourites.  Still, I ain’t bet this one, as both these teams are unpredictable as schizophrenics.

World of Hopelessness Bowl – Duke v. Northern Illinois (5:15, ESPN)

This is the only spot where I have action (one bill on Duke at -5.5, the Devils have been consistently good to me in GAMBLOR), though if I get bit here, I will likely angrily find an angle for the late fixture.  Generally speaking, MACtion meeting a team with any kind of talent or coaching = avert thine eyes jackhammering.  And Cutcliffe has done a magnificent job in Durham.

Cactus Bowl – Kansas State v. UCLA (9:00, ESPN)

Oh noes, they lost Motel 6 affiliation!!  Undead Bill Snyders against Chosen Rosen is one hell of an interesting matchup, by lesser exhibition standards.  Quite possibly worth staying up late for.

Ran into Columbine kid–this kid I tutor– at my tutoring center. He showed me his practice provincial exam essay prompt, in which he scored 1/12. Aside from the essay being a garbled mess that would take a rocket scientist to figure out what he was saying, the prompt was about overcoming a difficult hardship in life. He wrote about the time he saw how beautiful his mom looked in an elegant dress and had to fight the urge to grab and kiss her. . . .

. . . . .

He thought he should have gotten a 7.

Fronkenshteen

Sounds like moms almost got the 7.

theeWeeBabySeamus

In the dress, maybe she was a 7.

Brick Meathook

What did the dress look like?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Size 7

So far I’ve gone Guided By Voices > Pavement > Built to Spill. Suggestions from there? I was thinking Wedding Present.

William Leitch made a list of his previous fill-ins for Drew on the Jamboroo, and the 2015 one stood out to me: ‘Nobody Cares If You Lie‘.

Now, I do not think it is news when a politician lies; it’s not news when anyone does it, because everybody does it, all the time.

But I am not used to people not caring.

He starts out interestingly enough, but what the fuck is this idiot on about here? There are tens of millions of people who never cared and never will care.

Anyway, this is a waste of time.

I’m off to a good start fucking up everything today.

What happened?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Get in line, buddy.

My wife on Christmas eve was like “We need to stay up late tonight to get things done.”

I assumed she was going to wear something like in this pic. Turns out we had to wrap every Christmas present known to mankind. It was awful.

Fronkenshteen

Is there a medical reason Rosen isn’t playing tonight? Or is this about whether he’s staying at UCLA another year?

Fronkenshteen

Never mind. Concussion.

ballsofsteelandfury

It’s not a concussion. He doesn’t want to devalue his draft stock. Concussion is the “official” reason.

Fronkenshteen

Who had $ on James Harrison joining the Pats?

scotchnaut

“Heh.”

-Bill Belichick

Fronkenshteen

And just like that, everyone just left. Grandpa took the kids to the indoor pool, and my wife just went to shop & have lunch with her Mom. Activate THC!!!

Look, lady, don’t act all surprised that I took a gander when you stepped out of the dressing room loudly declaring “this swimsuit isn’t going to work, my nipple is right here”

scotchnaut

Kids these days-thinking that they can get ahead without being fondled against their will. #sonaive

BrettFavresColonoscopy

A) she was a (hot) mom
B) looking ain’t touching

Swansea: Not particularly good.

Godfather Part II is on. So that’s what we’re watching.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Sounds like they made an offer you couldn’t refuse.

Fronkenshteen

I’d watch that just to watch Bruno Kirby eat spaghetti.

Donny and Marie-Reeling In Years. You. Are. Welcome.

Which one’s Marie?

ballsofsteelandfury

Chosen Rosen has chosen to not play and may pull an Eli Manning.

So yeah, he ends up at the Giants.

“I’ll take 2 Super Bowl wins and more interceptions/fumbles than anyone thought possible for 600, Alex.”

Fronkenshteen

Is anyone drinking yet? I want a beer.

scotchnaut

It’s not even 1pm east and I seem to have overdone it. #whelp

yeah right

Nope, but I will be in

/checks watch

Nine short hours! That was a fun three days off now back to the salt mines I go!

Fronkenshteen

What a shot.

litre_cola

Very impressive.

scotchnaut

HBO’s doc of Rolling Stone magazine is an interesting walk back through politics/music. It’s by no means a whitewash.

WEST HAM, WOO-HOO!!!

Annnnd they fucked it up.

West Ham WOOO!

2 nothing Cottagers. Never count out The Whites on the road…

theeWeeBabySeamus

Last I heard Rosen is sitting out, btw.
Bet accordingly

theeWeeBabySeamus

And Yahoo needs to learn a new song. Assholes said this same shit to me last week word for word, just with updated numbers….

The tragedy of being an underachiever is that tWBS Never Learns knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they’re wrong. They scored 104.88 points against a projected 114.69 and underachieved for the 11th time this season, including the last five weeks in a row.

I still say it’s cruel and unnecessary, and makes me cry.

ballsofsteelandfury

To be fair to Yahoo bot, we have had the same banner quote for 3 weeks now. If it still applies, why change it?

theeWeeBabySeamus

You suck sometimes. Especially when you’re right.

How we doing, boys? The morning seems to be all about Europe. There has been some pretty decent soccer games on so far today and the Spengler Cup has begun.
