Of course, we can have a DFO Futbol Semana de Odio in advance of our World Cup previews in May.

NFL Notes:

  • In what reads like a note from a stroked-out Grandpa, Johnny Manziel has started his “Comebackszn”.
    • He will be playing in the new-ish Spring League, which is a thing the NFL & CFL started that runs out of Austin.
      • It has four teams, runs joint practices, and is designed as a developmental league for undrafted or sidelined players. Its season runs from March 28 to April 15.
  • Speaking of strokes, someone check on John Elway.
    • The Broncos are looking at signing A.J. McCarron if he becomes an UFA.
  • Remember the Jags fans who threw shit at the Seahawks when they were leaving the field? Well, two of them were identified & have been “banned indefinitely” from Jags games.
    • Prior to last season, that wouldn’t even have been considered a punishment.
  • In what sounds like a component of their new Thursday Night package, FOX will broadcast the opening nights of the NFL Draft.
    • This raises speculation that the NFL might add more bells & whistles to the production.

Finally, a little “Stealing From Crimebeat!” legal coverage:

  • the lawsuit against the Giants over fake memorabilia continues apace, with the Giants requesting summary judgement in their favour.
    • The plaintiffs allege the Giants engaged in fraud by purposing non-gameday articles as authentic gameday merchandise, and sold it as such, creating material benefit for them & exposing the purchasers/resellers to liability if the goods were, in fact, found to be frauds
    • The Giants want summary judgement because they allege the plaintiffs haven’t proven a thing despite 18 months of discovery.
  • Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers want to depose Papa John in Kaep’s collusion trial against the NFL.
    • It’s a result of the comments he made about ratings hurting his pizza sales, and that he wanted the league to do something about it.
      • Specifically, they want to know if Papa John spoke or worked with Jerry Jones on countering or toning down the player protests immediately after his comments.
    • Kaep is also suing certain agents, who his legal team believes prevented him from receiving valid employment opportunities as a result of not wanting to offend owners who were vehemently against the players’ actions.

Tonight’s sports:

  • Olympics:
    • NBCSN
      • 7:00PM – Pairs free skate (long program)
      • 10:00PM – Hockey (Women’s Group A): U.S. vs. Canada
    • NBC | 8:00PM – Figure Skating, Alpine Skiing, Skeleton, Speed Skating
    • CNBC | 10:00PM | Hockey (Men’s Group C): Finland vs. Germany
    • CBC | 8:00PM – Figure Skating, Alpine Skiing, Skeleton, Speed Skating
    • TSN:
      • 7:45PM –  Women’s Giant Slalom and Men’s Downhill
      • 8:25PM – Pairs free skate (long program)
      • 12:00AM – Men’s Curling Round Robin: Canada vs. Norway
      • 12:00AM – Hockey: Norway vs. Sweden
    • Sportsnet1 | 11:30PM – Men’s Snowboard Cross

  • NHL:
    • Blue Jackets at Leafs – 7:00PM | Sportsnet / NHLN
    • Panthers at Canucks – 10:00PM | Sportsnet
  • NBA:
    • Clippers at Celtics – 8:00PM | ESPN
    • Raptors at Bulls – 8:00PM | Sportsnet1
    • Warriors at Trail Blazers – 10:30PM | ESPN
  • NCAA:
    • Villanova at Providence – 7:00PM | FS1
    • Virginia Tech at Duke – 7:00PM | ESPN2
    • Kentucky at Auburn – 9:00PM | ESPN2
    • Seton Hall at Xavier – 9:00PM | FS1

It’s going to be extra sad once the Olympics are done. They’ve been a welcome distraction from the end of the NFL season. DON’T FORCE ME TO WATCH THE CANUCKS!

Got home from the airport, she made some fancy veggie dish, I made salmon and sazeracs. That’s a decent Valentine’s day right there. If only we weren’t so tired that the evening probably ends there.

Senor Weaselo

I redact my earlier questioning of reality, as St. John’s came back to win. At-large bid still alive!
/If they win literally every game from here until the Big East tourney final. And even then, probably not.
//No, you shut up!

That should be a no goal.

I’d volunteer to work on Kaep’s case.

I’m surprised the Commissioner didn’t pull all 32 teams aside and draw straws to see which one takes one for the Shield.

WCS

Should have been you, Houston. You don’t exist, anyway.

Unsurprised
Unsurprised

They still might. Jerrah won’t participate and Richardson wouldn’t have, but if it gets further along it really could just be cheaper to do that than to let the lawsuit continue. The NFL doesn’t have the statutory antitrust exemption the MLB does, nor any common law equivalent. This could end up actually hurting the Shield.

theeWeeBabySeamus

FWIW, I decided to go all in on Boise.
If they win tonight by more than 3, I double my bank to about $2,200 (a little less after the vig).
If they don’t cover, I’m cleaned out.

Either way, I’m done with teh betting after tonight. At least until the next Vegas trip.

theeWeeBabySeamus

And relax…most of it is house money already.

Give him 1 star. Dutching ovening your passengers is the worst.

Depends on the miles driven. If its a long trip, sometimes you can’t keep carpet bombs in the bay doors.

Senor Weaselo

So let me get this straight, St. John’s can beat Duke and Nova but they’re going to lose a second game to DePaul? In what realm does that make sense?

WCS

Trump is President, the Eagles beat the Patriots… this is The Upside Down.

Why on earth would anybody ice dance to that overblown shitty cover of “Sounds of Silence?” I mean, did they even listen to the words? It’s like a bank commercial using a Lou Reed song about heroin.

Senor Weaselo

Is it the Disturbed cover? Because that’s hilarious then.

Brick Meathook
Brick Meathook

Yes.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I don’t know why they’d choose it foar ice dancing. Seems an odd choice.
Having said that, I find their cover of it to be neither shitty nor overblown.
It’s actually quite a good arrangement.
Just my opinion….

Brick Meathook
Brick Meathook

My opinion is the exact opposite.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Yep, I gathered as much. No worries. And I didn’t mean to sound confrontational. Hopefully I didn’t.

That’s one of the great things about DFO. We can disagree about certain things and still love one another anyway.

No worries, I know. It’s all subjective. We’ll just have to agree that I’m right and you’re wrong.

I was about to tell a story that involved Beerguy Rick and I, but it seems my first student is about to finish her test.

A teaser: I made Rob hot and bothered, which eventually lead to me giving him 6 inches of pure weiner and him giving me a tip and a smile.

Narrator: The innuendo is better than the actual story.

theeWeeBabySeamus

No offense to you or Rob….

But I’m more interested in your student. Is she hot?

Catching up on Crashing and on the Bill Burr episode, and it’s perfect Burr shit. When I was in Michigan’s UP, I watched this motherfucker do 30 minutes in a fucking half court in a college athletic center in front of 50 sober ass students while dance music blasted through the dividing wall, and now he’s one of the biggest headliners in the country. One of the last not dead, not jailed, not disgraced of the comics from the northeast I followed as a stupid teenager. It would be nice if he doesn’t end up getting Louis CK’d or Patrice’d here soon.

I actually got my wife a couple good (1 nice, 1 thoughtful) gifts bc she’s all pregnant this year and I usually rail against VD. So she goes and works today and gets cravings for Mac n cheese and bagel bites (we’re not white trash, I swear!) so she’s on her way home and I went to target and got her some of the blue box and some gotdamn bagel bites!

“I usually rail against VD”

Is anyone ever really pro venereal disease?

Congrats on slipping one past the goalie. When is the wife due?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Is that really the question you want to ask?
I’m more curious how blax will manage not to murder himself in the next 18 yrs.

Or how the wife will manage to not murder him. Or the kid.

He gon’ get murdered, is my overriding point here, I guess.

blaxabbath

That was funny. Typed in a Norm-like delivery. I’m saving a screen shot of it.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Yeah, funny.
You’ll be fine.

blaxabbath

Late July. Was gonna be slammed inside all summer anyways — might as well be escaping the heat with a newborn.

Gives me time to get him ready for his first Football is Family season.

nomonkeyfun

Two things.

First, isn’t one of the points of marriage to avoid VD?

Second, I’m sure you never thought THAT blue box would be a great Valentines Day present.

My Valentine’s Day experience: Married Edition.

Wife wakes me up today at 7am:

Mrs. Wakezilla (who is also on her period): Surprise! I took the day off!
ME: Oh, that’s great. Lets go back to sleep.
Mrs. Wakezilla: I took the day off. What do you have planned for us? Lets spend the day together not sleeping.
ME: Uh, I literally just found out that you took the day off.
Mrs. Wakezilla: I’m going to make us a nice fancy breakfast to commemorate Valentine’s Day.
/20 minutes later, I had come up with the idea to have Wakezilla-ette to open the Disney store.

Mrs Wakezilla: OK, I can’t make breakfast anymore because we’re going to the Disney Store. Lets eat at a restaurant instead. Where do you want to go?
Me: Lets go to IHOP.
Mrs. Wakezilla: No, I don’t want that.

TLDR: This is why you don’t get married, folks.

We actually did have fun today, but jesus christ, there were some speed bumps along the way.

blaxabbath

Periods. Ugh.

Wakezilla

It definitely cramps everyone’s style.

theeWeeBabySeamus

It definitely changes the flow.

She’s normally pretty good with my suggestions, at least when it comes to breakfast. But there has been a few times with dinner where I would have been OK had an asteroid struck.

blaxabbath

i was gonna rip on choosing IHOP but brunch places are overpriced and so unimpressive, overall.

Wakezilla

I mean, what’s open Wednesday mornings for breakfast anyway? . . . That is on Valentine’s Day and not booked up?

NFL QB potential; arm strength, accuracy, and touch placement abilities are excellent, scrambling and playbook/ study habits are a minus.

Well, I get to go to a fancy restaurant for Valentine’s Day. To play. For 5-10 minutes. For $30. In gift card form. To the fancy restaurant that I won’t otherwise go to. And I already ate.

But I walked by a PETA protest so there was that?

ballsofsteelandfury

That’s good hooker BJ money!

Senor Weaselo

Gift card, Ballsy. Not legal hooker tender. As opposed to SNL musical guest, Legal Hooker Tender.

ballsofsteelandfury

I meant that you’re earning at a hooker rate. That translates to $180 per hour, which is not too shabby.

Also, you never know. Hookers get hungry too…

Senor Weaselo

Ahhhh. Never gonna top my personal best which was $500 for 90 seconds. Good to know it’s been all downhill from when I was 12!

…and to show some love for all other Commentists with loved ones, here some words of wisdom I found while on my travels through the internet:

If your sex does require an emergency supply kit, and ends up with someone passed out, covered in hives and bleeding while the fire department is kicking your door in, we humbly suggest you just seriously did something wrong. Like really wrong. Whatever you were doing, don’t do it again. For the love of God, don’t do it again.

Senor Weaselo

Can Hippo put money on that happening to me?

ballsofsteelandfury

Shit, I’D put money on that!!

Singles unite in not spending money on a forced show of affection!!
