A Canadian man-child of indeterminate age, he stays young by selling alcohol at sporting events and yelling at the patrons he serves. Their rage nourishes his soul, and their tips pay for his numerous trips to various sporting events.

But, somehow, Kid Rock is still alive, and the world just seems even less fair.

Tonight’s sports:

I guess the NBA needed an extra day so they could get the stink of JR Smith out of the arena in time for Game 2.

  • NBA:
    • Cavs at Warriors – 8:00PM | ABC / Sportsnet
  • MLB:
    • Red Sox at Astros – 7:30PM | ESPN / TSN
  • NCAA Baseball:
    • Tournament regional games – ESPNU
      • 6:00PM, 9:00PM
  • MLS:
    • Sporting KC vs. Minnesota United – 8:30PM | FS1 / TSN5

Hope you had a pleasant weekend. I’ll be back again Monday night. Until then,

Some crazy fuck I work with brought in some Carolina Reaper peppers and made a wing sauce with them. Popped 2 (boneless wings) in his mouth with the confidence of Homer at the Chili Cook-Off. Then it got weird. First his lips stopped working, and he seemed to be breathing through his ears. Then he had to go outside for a bit. When he came back in, he had some sort of endorphin overload and couldn’t stop laughing for @ 5 minutes. Why do people put themselves through this?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

The endorphin overload sounds like it would be fun, but can’t you just get that with regular drugs?

theeWeeBabySeamus

I tried to find some of those plants in order to send to Senor later this summer, but my plant guy screwed me over and sold them out from under me. Had to settle for Habanero and Ghost. Both of which are doing very well so far, actually.

The heat has about gotten to everything I have. Lost another squash plant this week. We’ll see if the tomatoes hang in.

The non-LeBrons are so useless it detracts from Steph Curry’s greatness. He keeps making these circus shots and they are far less impressive to watch because they are basically meaningless.

The insurance company totaled the Subaru. Gonna take out a very small loan and end up with a 2011 Forester instead of a 2012 Outback. 40K less miles, but a bit smaller. Gotta borrow @ $4K. Oh well. Coulda been worse. Fuckin’ deer.
On the upside, I seem to have been left alone at the back bar while the manager closes the front bar.

I fortunately have not killed wildlife on my daily commute.

Did anyone see Super Troopers 2 In theaters? Did I miss anything not seeing it yet?

ballsofsteelandfury

I really enjoyed it. I assume you’ll see it at some point. If you’re asking if you should see it in the theater, I say it’s not necessary. Specially with how they gouge you nowadays.

Yes, Beverly Hills. I remember. Saying “I ALMOST hooked up with one of their women!” didn’t have the same zing.

UConn has men on 1st and 2nd and just walked the guy on 1st to get to the clean-up hitter who had a 2R HR and a 2 RBI 2B earlier.

I mean, he’s probably due to whiff but….

Redshirt

That would only be smart if there was a runner on 2nd. Opens up a double-play ball or a triple-play ball if you can get the batter to hit a line drive to 3rd or 2nd.

Watching Batman v. Superman for the first time. I see they are really “Noah”-ing up Lex Luthor. Its too bad there isn’t any source material where the character could be fleshed out.

Man oh man…this fucking weekend has been brutal.

So my employer has introduced new policies that effectively take away any compensation one earns by working in the field. The latest thing, sent out, I shit you not at midnight, on a Friday, was informing everyone of a new requirement for all personal to have formal receipts and expense reports for every single transaction. Like it doesn’t matter if its a quarter, you need a receipt.

We had been hemorrhaging field people for a while now…and its turned into a deluge. Right now we are at 20% manning right now. There has been no effort to bring new people in.

I then find out from someone in management that about 2/3rd of the upper management is leaving the company in the next 30 days or so. Oh and there is an “all hands” meeting some time this week. So yeah…I’m on a sinking ship here.

So I start making up the old resume and sending out applications. But I am kind of fucked here. My degree is in mechanical engineering but I have only done electrical engineering work for the last six years. …so basically the jobs that I can qualify on for my degree…I don’t have the experience…but the jobs I have the experience for…I don’t have the right degree.

Its not that I can’t do well in interviews. I think I could land any job just on the interview. I struggle getting past the initial HR screening.

So far the only job I have a decent inroad for is based all the way in Anaheim. I have zero desire to move…I just bought a fucking house…but I think I have to.

….we are at 20% manning right now.

2/3rd of the upper management is leaving

Sounds like there’s gonna be a lot of promotion opportunities coming up soon…

Redshirt

I’m kind of in the same boat. People were leaving but they were not filling it. Later they said we lost our biggest customer and about 30% of our sales. But they did say that they planned for this. New business is coming in. Blah, blah, blah.

I would be nervous because my pay is in the upper part of my position’s range. However I’m the only person that can do my job, I’m overworked but keeping things running, and also I was promoted from my current position, but recalled back when my successors screwed things up five ways to Sunday.

JustStopDude
JustStopDude

Yeah…I’m in no position where the company could let me go. They need me far more than I need them.

But my job, I basically end up taking all the abuse from customers about the utter shit show our commissioning is about to turn into. And I suspect they will try to start cycling people into the field from the office. That is never going to work.

And besides…if I was going to do field work…I would do it for a company that actually pays me to fucking do it.

Redshirt

Ah, irate customer relations. My sister was in that job. I could see her soul dying more and more every time I saw her.

I’m not saying my wife and I tried that hot/cold KY lubricant as a goof one night, and I’m not saying we didn’t, but I am saying that you’re out of your fucking mind to think it’s a good idea.

Either that’s one hell of a guest star-packed episode that I don’t remember or that’s a pretty impressive editing job.
