NFL News:

  • A whole bunch of stars are skipping minicamps for various reasons.
    • Cardinals RB David Johnson, who wants to extend beyond his rookie 5th year.
      • He slated to earn $1.88 million for 2018.
    • Aaron Donald from the Rams.
      • He wants an upgrade to his rookie contract as well, which only pays him $6.9 million in 2018.
    • Julio Jones from the Falcons.
      • He has three years & $35 million left on his deal, but he’s also now the 7th highest-paid receiver, and that just won’t do.
    • As expected, Le’Veon Bell from the Steelers.
      • Channeling the spirit of the recently re-retired James Harrison, Darrius Heyward-Bey responded with, “Nobody cares. We’re out here and we have to get work done. … We’ll see him when we see him. Next man up.”
    • Odell Beckham Jr. has shown up, but will not be participating in any drills.

Tonight’s sports & entertainment TV:

I’ve decided to include other programs besides sports, because all there is at night is baseball.

  • AHL:
    • 2018 Calder Cup Finals: Stars vs. Marlies – 7:00PM | TSN2
      • Game 6; Marlies lead 3-2
  •  MLB:
    • Jays at Rays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Mets at Braves – 7:30PM | ESPN / TSN5
  • WWE:
    • Smackdown – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360
  • Futbol:
    • Women’s International Friendly Soccer: U.S. vs. China – 7:00PM | ESPN2
  • Comedy Central:
    • Drunk History – 8:00PM
  • National Geographic:
    • Hitler Youth – 8:00PM (Part 1)
    • Hitler Youth – 9:00PM (Part 2)

Oh, it’s officially the doldrums. EVEN DAYTIME SOCCER WILL BE A REFUGE!

I met Donald Trump once.

About 6-7 years ago. I got roped into watching my 3 month old niece while my sister got her hair done. So there I am, sitting in the waiting area of a hair salon with my niece, and who walks in but Don himself.

I was nervous and just kept looking at him as he read a magazine and waited, but was too scared to say anything to him. Pretty soon my niece started crying, and I’m trying to quiet her down because I didn’t want her to bother the Donald, but she wouldn’t stop. Pretty soon he gets up and walks over. He started running his hands through her hair and asked what was wrong. I replied that she was probably hungry or something. So Donnie put down his magazine, picked up my niece and lifted his shirt. He breast fed her right there in the middle of the hair salon. Chill guy, really nice about it.

Let me tell you, if you ever want to insist you’re totally very much not racist be sure to:

1. Define racism in a way that excludes anything you do
2. Refer prominent black intellectual Ta-Nehisi Coates as a “blight on our culture.”

The funny thing is I didn’t even call the guy racist, I just pointed out that a lot of people on the right try to shame their opponents by saying they’re not open-minded when said conservatives do not value diversity of ideas at all.

Can’t say I blame you. I really do feel sorry for the techs/reps who have to field angry calls from assholes like me when they have nothing to do with the shitty service their company is providing.

CenturyLink can burn in hell though.

theeWeeBabySeamus

This has been ongoing for about two years, however. CenturyLink has their script down…fix this, fix that, we’ll come do this service call, and now another. Oh wait, buy this modem because your old one is outdated and that’s the problem…probably. But even if you buy it outright, we’re still gonna try to charge you $10 bucks a month rent on it when we’re not supposed to…oh shit you caught us on that, but now the service is still even worse….

Well, not our problem.

I repeat…CenturyLink can burn in hell.

Yeah, he’s solid, and I’m sure #BFIB like him more than Fowler (for, um, reasons).

though Angry Black Man archetype Tommy Pham is the #1 fan favourite. But yes, Dexy is on the shit list, and we have the discussion “is it fair to say he’s candy-assing it in the field, or does he just suck at it and you’re being all Fredbird raycess?”

In the Hitler Youth show, I liked how the Nazis measured that Jewish boy hiding in plain sight, only to find he’s a first class Aryan. I was hoping it would lead to Hitler at a rally pointing to the Jewish kid going, “This is what a true Nazi looks like! Aspire to his example.”

me too! 😀

Himmler’s called up some of the Hitler Youth to the big leagues! But will the Allies’ fastball be too hot to handle? STAY TUNED!

Don’t blame the troops, they did their part. It was Hitler deciding he can fight a war better if he can surround himself with his enemies.

Its like that overruled sitcom ploy where a character has two dates at the same time in the same location. Only with more blood, suffering, and death.

I mean, there *is* peace in Korea. It’s a Mexican standoff kind of peace, but nobody is shooting at each other at the moment. I don’t think Trump should get any particular credit for ratcheting up tensions and then ratcheting them back down, but the media and the American people have a very short memory for these sorts of things so he’ll probably get a fucking statue or something.

Information for Hippo: The Yankees are going to start something called Jonathan Loaisiga, which the internet tells me is a 23-year old AA pitcher who is ranked as their 15th best prospect, and who has thrown all of 20 innings above High-A in his life, against the Washington Nationals tomorrow.

Place your wagers accordingly.

With the endless waltz that is finding out my kid’s looking at porn, removing that avenue, and finding the next one he discovers shortly after so I can take that away too, my patience with children is about vanished. That being said, the horror stories surrounding snapchat and whatnot I hear from parents of middle school aged daughters is the stuff of nightmare. Never have children. Why would you do that to yourself?

theeWeeBabySeamus

I didn’t do that to myself. I never made one. Yet this is the 3rd one I’ve had to raise, more or less.

My deadbeat brother better hope there’s plexiglass separating us the next time I see him. Which will be soon.

Right at the 2:50 mark. Still one of my favorite bits involving shitty children.

Interesting days doing training this week. I got a Belorussian coworker sitting in the training because he is going to Israel to do the job, the two customers from Israel, and myself. I learn very quickly that I am the only person proficient enough in English to have an in depth talk about drives.

So when I talk to my coworker, I use English (our common language). He knows drives so its not critical we understand each other perfectly. If I am talking to the one customer, I am using Spanish (he is originally from Argentina and prefers it over English). The other customer is originally from Russia, so when my coworker talks to him, its in Russian, which they are both proficient. If the two customers talk to each other, its in Hebrew, which neither myself or my coworker can understand. So as we go, basically my coworker and I are explaining the stuff in two different directions to make sure the customers are comfortable with the material.

Its actually going very well.

At one point, my boss stepped in around lunch time to check up on us. I think his head started to leak trying to figure out what was going on.
