NFL News:

  • Julian Edelman is apologizing for his failed test, but no one is certain what he tested positive for.
    • The League is having the sample retested, as the positive came as a result of a substance that wasn’t immediately recognizable, and there are scientists analyzing it.
    • Meanwhile, he can still practice with the team, but – pending appeal – won’t be able to play until Week 5.
    • Thing I didn’t know:
      • offseason use of stimulants falls under the substances of abuse policy, rather than the PED policy.
  • Earl Thomas is not going to attend Seattle’s minicamp.
    • He wants a contract extension first.
  • Stealing from Crimeneat!
    • CJ2K was arrested in Tampa for punching a valet outside a club in Tampa & is facing battery charges.
      • The argument was over keys; the effect will likely keep him from getting signed for 2018 until it’s resolved.

Tonight might be light content-wise from us here at DFO, and just baseball-wise from the networks, but we’ve got a big week planned. Aside from our usual series of continuing serials,

  • WCS will anchor our US Open coverage with open threads starting Thursday & running through the weekend.
    • Yes? Through the weekend, so Beerguy can get time-off from the Content Mines?
  • A rotating coterie of experts will host our World Cup Open Threads.
    • Don’t forget that we have a World Cup pool, with an alleged prize for the winner.
      • Join the fun here. The password is “balls”.

So there’s fun galore at your favourite football & dick joke site this week, despite the fact that there’s almost nothing on.

DFO – delivering cromulence & embiggening the masses since…2015?


Tonight’s sports:

  • Beisbol:
    • MLB:
      • Jays at Rays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
      • Cubs at Brewers – 8:00PM | MLBN
    • NCAA Tournament:

  • WWE:

      • the RAW “go-home” show before “Money In The Bank” this Sunday from Chicago.
  • Random shit stolen from the Japanese:
    • American Ninja Warrior – 8:00PM | NBC (East & West)
      • All-Stars Special: The fastest, strongest and most impressive athletes from the show compete head-to-head on the National Finals course.
  • Food Porn:
    • Best Baker in America – 9:00PM | Food Network
      • Old-School Classics – The four remaining bakers have to make Mont Blanc cakes during the skills challenge, which are tarts topped with a tower of chestnut paste. Then, the bakers have to make a Charlotte Royale cake, including peanut butter as the featured flavor.

Oh, I apologize. There isn’t just shit on tonight, IT’S MANUFACTURED SHIT!

To put it into perspective how bad the Orioles have been…they could go on a 27 game winning streak to reach .500, and they’d still likely be 10-12 GB.

I hope Buck Showalter has invested wisely.

That ending was fantastic. Right in the feels.

Spoiler alert Seamus; the ending is really well done.

Givens apparently means I’m “Given” you a run right here.

Wow, if I was Moreland, I’d feel like a real chump right now.
And vs Baltimore, that’s saying something.

Wait, Larry Kudlow is being treated at Walter Reed? Shouldn’t he let the free market decide if that heart attack kills him?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I’d be doubly worried if I were him cause Peter Navarro already gave away that special place in hell they had reserved for him to Justin Trudeau. If he dies now he’ll end up in regular hell with all the peasants!

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Sometimes you read something from a “professional” sportswriter and it takes all the restraint in the world not to bash your head against a wall

The unknown on the Bears defense will be at outside linebacker. Gone are Lamarr Houston, Willie Young and Pernell McPhee. The veteran of the group now is Sam Acho, who has been a part-time starter in the past. The Bears are seeking more athletic at the position, and Acho has much more athleticism than the departed trio.

herodotus450
herodotus450

The knock on Acho is that if the opposing quarterback just says “God bless you” in his cadence Acho is easily contained.

These Gatorade “Real smooth” commercials make me irrationally angry.

I had heard rumors there was a black rat snake that hung out nearby, but assumed it was a few buildings down. To this day I’m thankful I didn’t realize he hung out at a bush 3 feet from my front door until the day I was moving my crap.

During my tenure I had a frog who would jump in when I opened the door and my first act was to kick him out without thought. Had I done this to snakey I would have screamed like a little girl and run out the back window.

(knocks over empty beer bottles from soapbox, steps on soapbox)

This has been festering for all day, and I’m sugared up so bear with me…

This is one reason why I don’t turn Democrat. Some Liberals are so preachy; telling everyone how they should live their lives.

This isn’t some baker refusing service because their customers are gay (Okay, I respect that he believes Homosexuality is a Sin, but maybe God sent them to your store so you can Witness to them. You may not be able to convince them not to be gay, but you set them on path to be Saved by Jesus Christ. All Sin are forgiven through Christ, but not if they don’t know Him), or some power-tripped bureaucrat (You’re not there to fix the law or ignore the parts you don’t like; you’re there to enforce and enact the law. If you don’t like it, resign! If you feel the Supreme Court went too far, they’re a Check and Balance on them: its called a Constitutional Amendment or if you want the slow path, its called the Presidential and Senate Elections)…

(rant over, back on point)

…this is someone stopping at a fast food place that serves great chicken sandwiches. And getting reamed for it.

The owner of Chick-Fil-A may not support may not support homosexuality, but that is their right and they don’t refuse service to gay people because of it. Also, their reasons are not due to hatred, but do to their interpretation of the Bible. And their beliefs is so strong, they keep all stores closed on Sunday, reducing their profits by at least 14%.

And on rare occasions, some stores serve food on a Sunday during times of tragedy or to help people stranded during travel. Because that’s what the Bible says. If your help is needed on a Sunday, you don’t rest or worship God; you go out and help and that will be more than enough worship for Him.

They don’t support anti-gay because they have hate in their hearts. They do it because they feel that’s what they believe. No one knows the answers. Only God does, but he’ll let us know what how we did when we get our Final Exam grade back to see if we’re going up to Eternal Summer Vacation or down to Eternal Summer School.

But that doesn’t matter. Chick-Fil-A is anti-gay, so they’re monsters. And so is everyone who goes their apparently.

Their beliefs ARE born of hatred towards a segment of the population or as you’d put it “God’s children.” because the they think the bible says so.

“And on rare occasions, some stores serve food on a Sunday during times of tragedy or to help people stranded during travel. Because that’s what the Bible says. ” If you need a book to tell you to be empathetic, you aren’t.

I was talking about Liberals because they chimed in. Conservativism by definition should be the opposite, but not in this mutated form. That’s why we’re in this shit. Both sides are screaming and no ones listening.

I’m a Christian, but up to 10 years ago I was against Homosexuality. I didn’t hate them, I just considered them lost. Eventually I came to the conclusion that I can’t judge them for their sin because I’ve also sinned. I won’t become gay, because I believe it to be a sin. But I shouldn’t impose my beliefs into another person.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

You won’t become gay because you are not, people are gay or not, they don’t switch sides, some just realize it after kidding themselves.

When I was taking my lumber grading course, there was a former Amish kid who laughed when the instructor pulled out a piece of wood and said it was over 10,000 years old because, “Everyone knows the Earth is only 5000 years old.” That’s the last time I felt this way.

I think American Dad of all shows had a decent take on this – they had Stan try to choose to be homosexual.

At time American Dad’s open mindedness seems like an apology for how preachy Family Guy gets. At least in the past. I think Family Guy is sort of mellowing out.

I don’t really think that this incident is a “liberal” thing, I think it’s that people LOVE a good pile-on. Plenty of LGBT folks eat at Chick Fil A, plenty of straight people eat wieners and fish tacos even though those make you gay and lesbian, respectively.

Fuck Jack Dorsey, though. Not for the Chick Fil A thing, though, just for being a douchebag.

That is probably a huge part of it. Somebody famous puts something on twitter now days should expect this. Even those who don’t get blasted for being who they are. Like Kelly Marie Tran or Leslie Jones.

Chic-Fil-A making that quote didn’t bother me, it was the mass publicity whores who jumped on this cause while spouting many easily refuted facts that annoyed me *Looks at older brother who swore many restaurants changed their signs to support said cause*. He claimed all it accomplished was making a rich man richer, I told him all it accomplished was exposing the idiocracy of our society.

Getting back to my point, that’s why I didn’t visit him last week.

Sanctimonious pricks are everywhere in the TRAITR – PATRET spectrum. Boycotting and outcry seem like an appropriate response to bigoted merchants. I think. And it’s in line with the market / capital crap I had to take in school.

Everybody is a fucking hypocrite because the owners of the NFL are horrible horrible people and yet we still watch the games.

If we could only have a free kick an NFL owner in the balls day.

Redshirt, I love you, but fuck right off. It’s not even my religion but, you shall know them by their fruit. The works of the party that has abandoned you are downright unamerican, and far too often the conservative talking point is “but look at what the libruls said.” My party isn’t perfect, and some sanctimonious assholes are not the homogeneous representation of the party. In the meantime, Democrats are trying to help people, even if you might do it another way. All the while Republicans are tearing down the very fundamentals of what this country stands for, both through words and actions. But tell me again why they’re to be ruled out when a handful of people online get angry.

Lost me at “I can’t judge them for their sin.” It’s not a sin and it’s none of your business.

So a few minutes ago I hunted down and murdered a few inchworms in the garden (because the little fuckers weren’t satisfied with eating my lettuce and have moved on to my tomato plants). Most people would be upset at discovering an inchworm crawling around near their armpit once they were back inside, but not me. I was delighted. This must be what it feels like to be a serial killer who thought their prey successfully got away but then comes back inside and discovers that instead of running the victim was actually hiding.

as someone who has been setting out little coffee cup death ovens for fruit flies the last week or so, I nod approvingly

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I’m actually a fan of the fruit fly ecosystem here – they gather around my compost piles, the lizards eat them, and then my cat hunts the lizards. She doesn’t kill them, so it’s cool. Just about ten minutes of complete mortal terror and then they get away.

NCAA Baseball is to me what curling is to NASCAR fans. It just ain’t right!

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

NASCAR fans dislike curling? Why? Is it because the game includes too much exercise?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Oh, duh, it’s cause they see men sweeping and it reminds them of that segment they saw on Fox News about the War on Masculinity and how the feminists and transsexuals are winning.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Speaking of transsexuals, I wish the ones that lived in my neighborhood would stop having such sexy legs.

It’s like RTD channeled the spastic logic behind Trump’s tweets. #prayforrikki

I must be the unicorniest of the unicorns as I love NASCAR, fútbol, AND curling.

WCS

I hope to satisfy your golf #content. Both Lil’ WCS and Lil’er WCS are sick, so… hurrah.

King Hippo

That eventually stops. Then, they just turn in fake sick notes and cut class to go smoke pot with their friends and/sketchy boys who live in motels. So, hang in there!
