WHO CARES?

This is actually your Lesser Footy Open Thread for Saturday morning,  Wild Card Weekend.  A thing that the Houston Texans,  whatever they are,  will NOT be participating in.

Good morning everyone! This is Balls here and I’m taking a hilarious post template that Romonobyl put together and finally letting it see the light of day.

The EPL is taking the weekend off because… reasons? Well,  they WERE the only league fully playing during the holidays,  so maybe that’s it.

The Spanish league is back from the break and we have some good games super early. Is this an early Día de los Reyes Magos present? MAYBE!!

For those of you that didn’t grow up in this tradition,  January the 6th is like a second Christmas for certain Spanish-influenced cultures. As all good Catholics know,  the baby Jesus

was visited by the three Kings (or wise men,  alternatively) who brought him gold,  frankincense,  and myrrh as birthday presents and to pay him homage.

In that spirit, little kids in many Spanish-speaking countries wake up to little presents brought to them by the three Kings.  FUCK YOU I’M GETTING PRESENTS SO YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I BELIEVE IN SANTA AND THE THREE KINGS!

There is also Rosca de Reyes.

This is a Mexican tradition in which families gather together on the 6th to share presents and a slice of a specially-made sweet bread with at least one plastic baby Jesus inside. Rosca goes best with hot chocolate,  coffee,  or milk.

The tradition is that whoever gets the slice with the baby Jesus inside MUST host a party before a month is gone.

Since we are a Christmas Eve family and we, frankly,  couldn’t wait,  we had slices last night (It was the 6th in Australia,  ok?!?) and my Dad got the baby! Party at my Dad’s house!

Also,  our Rosca has 3 babies,  so there are still two other chances for a party! Don’t you wish you were Mexican now?

But I digress.  What games are on today? Let’s see…(All times Pacific)

And what about beautiful Canadia, you say?

Uh, what the fuck is a Fanatiz? That doesn’t sound like the Mexican league is readily available in The Great White North,  which is really a shame.

This is Week 1 of the Liga MX Clausura season,  so we are starting fresh! Defending champion Tigres,  you remember Tigres,  right?

Janet, no te preocupes. Te veo pronto y te sentirás MUCHO mejor!

lost their first game,  so once again the league is wide open for anyone to claim.

Besides,  what else are you going to do this morning,  go outside in the cold?

We’ll see you later for the Wild Card Open Threads…

Raffy….I just don’t know what to say here. Especially considering the real reason you’re probably doing this.

I wish I knew you were gonna do this two years ago so I could have shown my derision in person.

And btw Dayn Perry….I look pretty goddamned good hitting off a batting machine too.
Does that mean I should make a comeback at 51?

Jesus Christ, St. John’s is losing to DePaul at home. I guess they lied about this year being a bubble team if things broke right!

DePaul at home?? That’s Full Dotard territory, eh?

It’s currently 13 with 3 minutes to play!

ESSSSS EEEEEEE SEEEEEEEE

Somewhere, John Swofford and John Clougherty are taking notes.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Seriously Hippo. I know ACC officials are….well, you know.
But this SEC crew in the Mizzou/UF game need to be investigated.

Holy shit.

King Hippo

The SEC plays hoopsball, PAAAAWWWWWWLLLLL?

theeWeeBabySeamus

And Clark Kellogg is still an imbecile, btw.

And that was total goaltending on UF. Was it called? Nope.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Poor U*NC. It’s gonna stink having to go back to Chapel Hill and go to class after that one.

Hehehehehe….never mind. I’m not explaining that one.

Fucking Wahoowa didn’t score for like the last 4.5 minutes, still won by 12. What a fucking joke.

U*NC taking it up the pooper in Hooville. They barely won their home opener v. shitass Wake Forest, otherwise would be staring at 0-3 in league play.

I haven’t seen a massacre like this in Charlottesville since….

Never mind, I’m not gonna finish that one.

Wakezilla

Refresh my memory again, what happens when teams tie 0-0? The Stevenage/Reading fixture turned into a grade 8 dance because try as they might, they didn’t score.

King Hippo

FA Cup, you get a replay at the visiting side’s ground for any kind of draw.

Wakezilla

Seems like a waste of time for the bigger squads, even if they send out their C squad

King Hippo

In the olden days, they did that FOREVER. At least now, there is only one replay (if tied again, you get added time, then shootout).

It’s hard on smaller squads, too. As Litre and I were discussing, the year Wigan made their miracle run, they also went down, and they ain’t never been back.

As Robbie Earle loves to say about all extra competitions…poison chalice

Wakezilla

It’ll never happen, but, I think it’d be amazing if the winner gets an automatic promotion into the EPL for the following year.

Imagine Notts County going on a magical run and getting bumped up like 6 divisions

King Hippo

Much better prize than entry into CL/Europa, where they just play 4-5 matches and get butt-hammered, too.

King Hippo
Wakezilla

I mean, it worked for Eric Garland. . .

But seriously though, it’s probably his intern doing this in order to sidetrack Americans from the insane accusations from Wolf’s book

@Hippo…

As you know, the WPC and myself are on the outs, in spite of the fact that they keep calling/writing/etc trying to schmooze me. Just one moar individual/organization which now hates me, but still wants money. Meh…fuck ’em. Who cares? But as I’ve told you already I believe, my season baseball tix have not and will not be renewed this season.

That being said, I did purchase a mini season ticket pair yesterday for the Bulls. My point being, I am dragging your ass kicking and screaming to at least one game this summer. We will reprise our drunkeness behind the “hit bull win steak” sign, and ogle young lovelies.

So prepare your anus. Figuratively speaking, of course.

You know you want to. Don’t say “no”. (wow, flashback to my last date)

They lied to me one too many times. Sounds familiar, no?

ballsofsteelandfury

Yeah, I wouldn’t trust those assholes…

comment image/revision/latest?cb=20140807131149

theeWeeBabySeamus

The funny thing, well not funny really but appreciated…

When I ordered these Durham Bulls tix yesterday, I did it online. Literally, within 15 minutes, Courtney called to check in and ask if I had any questions or if she could help in any way.

It’s a refreshing change to give money to an organization that actually values the source of where the money came from. Very welcome change from my recent dealings with the WPC.

King Hippo

Once Lifetime Rights came into play, they started treated “shareholders” like a captive audience instead of valued customers, even (as noted above, I think university supporters should be treated like shareholders, especially since you never know who is going to turn into a bidness big shot).

For example, the Goodnight husband and wife team who run the SAS empire – NC State graduates. They don’t give a plum nickel to athletics. Talk about a once-in-a-generation (or several generations) lost opportunity. That’s all the Down East pig money put together, times ten. AT LEAST.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Agreed. You have no idea how happy I am about the timing of me leaving the area for a while, thus giving up season football tix and not being tempted by the LTR bullshit.

I guess my insane and now dead ex did do me some good after all.

theeWeeBabySeamus

And remind me to tell you sometime (if I haven’t already…sorry, my memory is shot) about how I almost got in on that down east pig money.

Biggest mistake of my life. I’d have smelled like hog shit for five years and then been a rich muddafukka.

And would have avoided a lot of the figurative shit life threw at me anyway.

And been closer to the beach too!!!!!!!!

King Hippo

maybe

theeWeeBabySeamus

I don’t wanna hear about no muddafukking maybe’s…Alls I wanna hear from yo’ ass is I’m on the muddafukka. LOL.

Wow, it’s really cold. And this is a lot of snow.

FUCK IT LET’S PLAY!!!!!!!!

Horatio Cornblower

Our dog is a lab-mix with ridiculously short hair, and no body fat. Currently 12 here, feels like -4 with the wind, which is a real issue for him.

He keeps wanting to go for a walk and I keep bringing him outside and we get to the end of the driveway and he says “fuck this” and heads back.

For the record the outdoor cat’s fort has been buried in snow and is essentially an igloo. She is thriving and someday will kill us all.

King Hippo

my cat insists on shitting/pissing outside. We got like 1.5 inches Thursday evening, but it ain’t been over 30 since (and gets down to 10-12 every night). So…it’s been challenging for him.

Thankfully, he’s held it pretty well. No piles of stink anywhere. He’s been going out maybe twice a day.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Igloos don’t get no colder than freezing.
Ppl forget that.

(glad she’s doing well bcuz I’d have felt kinda bad if my advice had led to your jerk cat freezing to death….woooo for the kinda smart vet advicing!!!!!!)

Horatio Cornblower

I am not going to be at all surprised to walk by the fort one day and see that she has installed a wood stove in it.
