Your “Umm, What – They’re Now The FavoUrites?” Saturday Evening Open Thread

Fun fact: Celine Dion actually sang in the Eurovision contest in 1988, representing Switzerland – because you don’t actually have to be from the country you are representing. You are singing a song from that country, so the song is from the country & the artist can be from wherever. (Still easier to understand than CanCon rules.) She won the whole damn thing.

The takeaway from this video is the phrase: “awakened a sleeping moose”.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Vegas at Winnipeg – 7:00PM | NBC / CBC
  • NASCAR:
    • KC Masterpiece 400 – 8:00PM | FS1 / TSN

      • UFC 224: Preliminaries: From Rio de Janeiro – 8:00PM | FX / TSN2
    • Bellator 199 – Ryan Bader vs. King Mo – 9:00PM | Paramount (Spike)
  • College Lacrosse:
    • NCAA Tournament: Virginia at Loyola (Md.) – 8:00PM | ESPNU

ENJOY YOUR EVENING!

Red Legs win 3x in a row at Chavez Ravine. STRANGE DAYS. Late, late night with the #BFIB.

So Litre Cola v Seamus for The Cup then? Cool! Then it’s mid-June, SUMMER VACATION. Then training camp, preseason, and fantasy drafts. Then we’re back, baby! And I’m getting Sundays off this season, goddammit. I’ve worked Sundays for the last 4years. NO LONGER!
I’m quite drunk & hoping Cinn @ LAD goes to extras so I don’t have to change the channel.

Anyone buy the big 32 by 48 HRTN poster? Is it good on quality etc at that scale?

Beastmode Ate My Baby

It should be… I designed it at a slightly smaller size but at a hefty DPI. Hold on a sec…

Beastmode Ate My Baby

OK, looking at it in PhotoShop on my PC…I think it would look good. There might be a slight jagginess on some of the type at the bottom, but I’m not even sure that would show up in print. FWIW, it should be 50% off over this weekend.

blaxabbath

Yeah I saw that. There’s a store link at the bottom of dfo I just noticed tonight.

Sooooooo much better than what WWE is producing with AJ and SN….

Seriously, just tell them to recreate that match with a little twist.

Today on Yellow Sign television:
11:00 PM FRIENDS– comedy
Chandler and Pheobe say something silly.
Ross and Rachel capture and vivisect Marcel so that they can complete the ritual on page 24.
Monica collapses, dead due to the collective will of the studio audience.
Joey is arrested for rape after misinterpreting the frantic blinks of a paraplegic as Morse code for “Fuck me now.”

Cannibal Holocaust.

Senor Weaselo

According to Hermana Weaselo that one wasn’t necessary. If you’re going to watch a Thor watch Ragnarok.

I didn’t see Ragnarok or Guardians or Iron Man 3 but I was fairly okay, but she helped me out with that because she saw it with her bf before seeing it with me.

Thor is the special ed kid of superheros so…yeah…you can skip all his movies…

None. Seriously. In many ways, Infinity War erases stuff that previous movies set up.

The hockey game on TV is between Las Vegas and Winnipeg? Am I hallucinating?

I know I made this joke earlier, but Willson Contreras has been pounding the ball as if it were Mia Khalifa.

Since the Ice Giants have been irrelevant since February, I’ve been on the Anyone but Pittsburgh bandwagon. This final 4 is OK by me.

For picks purposes, go Ice Bucs.

Just realized that Winnipeg is a Canadian team. If they are the nxet Canadian team to win the cup, that would be pretty, pretty funny.

litre_cola

It would be fucking amazing.

King Hippo

but is it REALLY Canadia if it isn’t Toronto or Montreal smh??

herodotus450
herodotus450

And then trump invades Canada, absorbing it into the US, so they are also the LASt Canadian team to ever win.

A battle for Texas hasn’t been this one-sided since Santa Ana surrounded the Alamo.

King Hippo

when Charlie Morton is right, he’s devastating

litre_cola

Didn’t he have a country music show?

King Hippo

seems like he should have a Good Time Family Variety Hour, eh?

litre_cola

WHolesome name, that name would bang your sister.

MLBN on between periods, appears King Felix is turning into Bartolo Colon.

Horatio Cornblower

That trains been a-comin’ down the tracks for a while now.

It would probably arrive sooner if it didn’t stop at every doughnut shop on the way.

King Hippo

Judging by the shift the Dirt 500s put on, I’m guessing this Gallo fella has never hit a ball to the opposite field in his entire fucking life.

Spanky Datass
Spanky Datass

‘Tis mostly true.

King Hippo

We could have seen the first bunt double hit at the MLB level since God knows when, and I don’t care if he runs like fookin’ Evan Gattis! 😀

Spanky Datass

I think he bunted against the 500’s for a single avioding an even harder shift the first series in Arlington.

/hasn’t watched this much dirtball in twenty years
//feels the old

King Hippo

I’ve missed maybe 10 innings of #BFIB this season. Really starting to break new levels of self-loathing

litre_cola

This has been a fantastic period.

King Hippo

Said no woman EVAR

Also, Evan Gattis just stole a base. He looks like a 50-year old moonshiner. It was weird.

King Hippo

Has Fleury SEEN a puck yet? The last two shots missed, but he turned his head around to look on both.

WOO Hippo right even though he knows fuckall about this silly sport.

Senor Weaselo

Just curious, I thought that the division winners being the respective #1 seeds took precedent over the points. Because the NHL playoff system is really fucking confusing.

herodotus450
herodotus450

I’ll just leave this top 5 google result, an article from 2013, here, I think it will explain everything.

/everything being that for a surprising number of things, google kinda sucks.

Senor Weaselo

I know everything else, but doesn’t cover the conference finals situation I’m asking about. Also I still think the 2nd place team should play the 3rd place team in the other division in the first round, and in the second round it should be 1A vs. 2B rather than divisional playoffs.

King Hippo

They should just pull names out of a hat, like they do for Lesser Footy cup competitions.

Penishead Magee’s justification for challenging: “the [home] crowd is on your side, go for it.”

Fluery’s inevitable playoff collapse has started; tome for Vegas to go to their newly signed mustachioed backup keeper, Blatt Blurray.

Senor Weaselo

“Distinct kicking motion” is the “fumble across the plane for a touchback” of hockey.

King Hippo

on review, that will stand

King Hippo

Theo Fleury nervous breakdown pool is ON!

Senor Weaselo

So, I should probably go to dispute that ticket on Monday or else I won’t get a chance because 30 days will have passed.

Just make sure to bring a sausage so you can say you were just holding it in front of your crotch, but your pants were on the whole time

As long as you’re in the south and didn’t send the picture over state lines, should be legal.
