NFL News:

Everything today seems to fall into the “hoo-boy” department.

  • The burglary at LeSean McCoy’s ex’s has taken a dark turn:
    • She’s in the hospital after being pistol-whipped.
    • The burglar asked for items specific to her relationship with McCoy.
      • Further to that, her lawyer issued a statement:
        • “In fact, after Ms. Cordon refused to return her jewelry gifts to Mr. McCoy, he would often suggest to Ms. Cordon that she could be robbed because the jewelry was expensive.”
    • Richie Incognito has his ex-teammate’s back.
      • “I know the full story and he didn’t do it.”
        • Yep – and Rae Carruth wasn’t driving the car.

  • The charges against Brandon Browner were revealed Tuesday.
    • Attempted murder, robbery, burglary, false imprisonment, and two counts of child endangerment.
  • Cardinals GM Steve Keim name-dropped a dead cop during his field sobriety test.
    • So now his misdemeanour DUI could also be adding a misrepresentation charge.
    • Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill is “extremely disappointed”, saying “there will be consequences”.
The drinker & the thinker.
  • One wonders what the consequences will be for this statement by Bidwill, during an interview about Trump’s new Supreme Court pick,  about players’ rights to protest:
    • “Not at all,” Bidwill said. “I think it’s important to speak up. People are saying stick to sports? You know what? We ask our players 20 days a year — game days — to restrict their statements. The rest of the days, we want our players to get engaged in the community. Just like I am and other owners are.
  • An employee at Atlanta’s airport threw punches at Pacman Jones.
    • Following a gesture by the airport worker, Pacman confronted him & the guy initiated the fight.
      • “Mr. Ragin eventually struck Mr. Jones with a closed fist, causing a laceration to Mr. Jones’ face”.
    • Frank Ragin was arrested on two counts of battery – one for hitting Pacman, the other due to an injury Pacman’s companion suffered defending herself.
Obligatory.

Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Rangers at Red Sox – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN3

The Rock on Colbert was awesome. Definitely watch it if you have the chance.

Our current Emperor is doing his damnedest to piss off all of our allies, learn how to be become a dictator from actual dictators, but, MST3K will always be there for me.

What is “Senor on the podium, apparently?” Let’s do “Shows About Nothing” for $400.

Checking out this Magic Funhouse show on VRV about a cast of degenerates that run a kid’s show on public access. Not sure if it’s any good yet, but I appreciate the cut of its jib.

As opposed to Pac-Man who didn’t like the cut of that man’s jab.

Surely this isn’t the same LeSean McCoy (four capital letter name btw that’s messed up) who had that… party thing? a while ago? In a bar? Or did he beat up a cab driver?

Greeting everyone. How’s staring in that abyss going?

If by “abyss” you mean Bourbon bottle then it’s going swimmingly, thanks for asking.

It’s good, because I’m the only person who actually wants the monster to return! A little bit.

Damn I hate the Dirt P*ts pitcher Kimbrel. Hate his ginger beard. Hate his “Mounting Monkey” pose. Did kinda like that four-pitch walk though. SUCK IT!

yeah right

He’s the pitching version of Edwin Encarnacion. Where’s the parrot?

God damn it. Fuck Michael Bidwill.

I hope that fucking team leaves the state. The NFL will let us still bid for Super Bowls as a parting gift and that’s fine by me.

Wakezilla

Owners should have, at most a 15 year window. If they’re shit and not trying to win, then they should get das boot

But seriously, here’s my altogether-too-early theory:

Kavanaugh racked up between 60 and 200k in credit card debt in 2016. CREDIT CARD DEBT! What’s happening is that he’s got a gambling problem. Like, a gigantic gambling problem. So he’s in deep, for lots of money, to some shady-ass characters. He can’t just go to the bank and take out 100k in cash to pay them off. He’s got to make it look clean. So he does it via baseball tickets. Buys a ticket at a jacked up price on his credit card, sells it back at a loss. He’s still got a house and a nice salary, so now that he’s got nice clean credit card debt, he can go to the bank and refinance his mortgage to pay down the credit cards. Easy-peasy.

blaxabbath

Russians.

No way he’s not 1 degree to a Russian gang.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

The possibility he’s just some deviant gambler actually makes him quite relatable.

Nice touch with NFL Network showing the Bills-Jags WC Game starring LeSean McCoy. I’m guessing tomorrow’s Throwback Thursday will be all about O.J. Simpson?

litre_cola

The Darren Sharper special makes me sleepy.

Redshirt

Fuck it, Reds. Don’t stop now. Lets see if we can give up 20 tonight.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

…the other due to an injury Pacman’s companion suffered defending herself.

Are we sure this isn’t a case of her failing to stop hitting herself why is she hitting herself?

Redshirt

Hey. who told the Reds they’re supposed to suck? Couldn’t you have waited until after the All Star Break?!

Today at work just before I was getting ready to call it a day, I get an email. Our customer was asking for an order, but the numbers wasn’t matching up. So I decided to spend 15 minutes going through the records to see who messed up, the customer, customer service or me. Only to find, that it looks I messed up and I would be responsible for $100k of bad product. The week after they let a dozen people go, including people who’s been there for 20 years.

Thankfully, everything was okay. I didn’t mess up. The email had wrong information. However, I suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and one of the triggers is stress.

tl;dr Today at work, I got the shit scared out of me.

litre_cola

If Ohio allows marijuana anytime soon, CBD oil has helped my wife incredibly with IBS and no psychoactive effects.

Redshirt

Can’t be under the influence at work. That includes pot.

litre_cola

She takes 1 mg before bed 3 times a week. So much better for her. Seriously, it works while she sleeps.

It is funny, the reason that I have my prescription is for a back injury I suffered. I went to the weed dr and showed him the 4 containers of pills and 1 salve that I had to take to not be in agony and he gave me a prescription for marijuana. It was ok for me to be all hopped up on all those painkillers and be working, yet if I wanted a non psychoactive dose of cbd oil I would be in trouble.

I do it anyway.

Redshirt

I’ll look into it once its becomes legal. Thanks for the input.

litre_cola

Absolutely. She doesn’t smoke weed at all, but heard that this stuff works and tried it and was so happy. That is the problem with it all being grouped in to one category where cbd oil does not affect you but people do not know the difference between THC and it.

/I will get off my soapbox now.

theeWeeBabySeamus

/litre_cola falls off soapbox because really, really high.

blaxabbath

So #McCoyGate, what side does infowars take? QA think it’s one conspiracy after another? Or a deep state attack on a beautiful women?

Redshirt

Its an robbery by McCoy, and one hell of a sloppy one. He asked for only his stuff. He beat her up, so anger is involved.

If he was any smart, he would’ve told him “Tie her up, blindfold and gag her, steal my stuff and her stuff” that way it just looks like a generic B&E and robbery.

blaxabbath

God — I’m so glad my wife is overall sane.

Frank Ragin was arrested on two counts of battery – one for hitting Pacman, the other due to an injury Pacman’s companion suffered defending herself.

…why is everyone looking at me?

blaxabbath

Wow – I’d have expected the conclusion to have been that the man had signed his own death warrant with that little stunt.

Guess the night is still young though….

yeah right

I’ll play along! Kind of.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

I’ve had a long day at work, but was looking forward to going to the Padres game after work, since it is a very sexy ’96 Tony Gwynn jersey giveaway night today. I go to buy my tickets and see in fine print that this “giveaway” is only available with a special extra $$ ticket, which is also apparently sold out. Since this is bullshit, I called the front office and tried to buy some anyway, and was given an email address to bitch to if I wanted. So, I did! Someone called me back a couple hours later and they MAGICALLY had more tickets available. So I ended up getting the jerseys for free at the normal ticket rate.

Moral of the story is, calling people on their bullshit apparently works! And seriously, don’t call something a fucking GIVEAWAY if you have to literally buy something else to get it.

WCS

Dean Spanos thinks the Padres are weak.

scotchnaut

Hippo, what the odds of Incognito dying by self-strangulation in prison versus death by police gunfire? There’s a 20 burning a hole in my pocket.
