What’s on Tonight? Nothing! The slowest night of the sports year open thread!

Greetings everyone!

The day is here.

It has arrived.

Today, the day after the MLB All Star game, is officially the slowest sports day in the entire calendar year.

Not a single one of the major sports are playing meaningful games.

Not one.

This is the absolute pinnacle of nothingness, the zenith. The anti-nadir. The nexus of nothingness. The absolute goddamn peak of non-sports happenings.

You can use the more scientific term if you want and say that there is “diddly dick” on to watch tonight.

What do we have?

Jesus, I can’t even bear to put this out there.

Nothing.

The British Open starts tomorrow and the Tour de France is on tomorrow morning but tonight?

Nada.

And fuck the fuck out of you ESPN I ain’t watching your bullshit ESPY propaganda!

What we do have is training camps starting imminently! Baltimore already has a little something happening with all veterans reporting for training camp today in Owings Mills MD. The Bears report for camp tomorrow.

In additional NFL news: Revis Island is officially closed! After an 11 year career of mostly stellar performance,  Darrelle Revis is calling it a day.

Here’s his announcement.

Let the debate on his HOF credentials begin. I can see him making the Hall but the big debate will be is he first ballot material? Here come the takes!

EA Sports also announced that Antonio Brown will “grace” the cover of  “Madden ’19.”

Is the Madden curse real? Adjust your fantasy draft accordingly if you think it is.

And finally the Saints signed former Patriots and Giants RB Shane Vereen in a move that excites virtually no one!

 

Training Camps have started!

 

We just have to survive this last cold, lonely night in the abyss.

Give each other a hug. Buy each other a drink. Tell stories of yesteryear to pass the time. Take this time to maybe actually spend quality time with your fam…

Nah I’m just fucking with you.

So let’s hang out and shoot the shit while this last agonizing day of no sports dwindles into our rear view mirrors for another year.

We can rise above this!

 

Talk to me people!

I think instead of California, Imma drive north to Baltimore. From the sounds of it, I could probably get a tryout by month’s end. Selling of players and shitty farm system. I wonder if I can still consistently make the throw from 3rd to 1st? Oh that’s right, I never really could to begin with which is why I crapped out in HS.

I bet I could make league minimum for a coupla years throwing my smoking 60mph knuckleball though. Fuck you Tim Wakefield.

You will get them to challenge for the pennant. They are only a few games back right?

theeWeeBabySeamus

What’s 35 or 40 games? It’s only July.

So my fancy actor friend told me about a commercial audition he just did where people reading for the “surfer” part were instructed TO BRING THEIR OWN SURFBOARD TO THE AUDITION. Can you imagine what a shitshow that must have been?

Duchess

Guesses of the % of surfboards brought had actually ever been used?

15%

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I’m sure most of them had been borrowed.

Joke as much as you want about Kristin Cavallari, but I will admit she knows an audiance…https://www.instagram.com/ifjayhadinstagram/?hl=en

She’s seeing the hit that is Jay Cutler not giving a shit about her show and is running his Instagram account.

Yes, she still sucks for not vaccinating her kids though.

In honor of the 7th season of Venture Bros. starting Aug 5th. I may just watch seasons 1-6 all over again, basically just so I can remember every damn thing that happened before.

Duchess

well that will take like half a day…or just watch this

ArmedandHammered
ArmedandHammered

One of my favorite episodes, especially when the henchman is searching for the keys to the boat.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

It took me many episodes before I had any idea what was going on, but once I did…man, that show rules.

Duchess

Watching the New Adventures of Johnny Quest growing up really made me enjoy the Venture bros. But yeah its one of those things that if you didn’t jump in in the first season you wouldn’t have really understood what all was going on.

New Adventures of Johnny Quest, I watched the originals. That damn mechanical spider gave me nightmares for weeks.

I refuse to watch these shitty awards shows, but the coverage at least reminds that, at long last, Sports Are Good.

So this summer for shits and giggles I have been a driver/runner at a small/medium sized venue, and it made me think. I have seen/heard Bare Naked Ladies, Better than Ezra and tonight the B52’s and Boy George… And I think it must be hell to be an aging rock star. Like imagine having to tour the country for 25+ years, and all people want to hear are 6-7 songs you wrote when you were 22. No matter how much you may have matured as an artist and evolved… It’s the bullshit you threw together when you barely knew what to do that all the people want to hear.

Day in and day out the same songs…You wonder why most of them end up offing themselves with heroin.

Gratliff

To be fair, I don’t think there’s 6-7 songs I’d want to hear between the four of them

King Hippo

hey Culture Club did some catchy fucking shit

Duchess

Right but imagine having to play “Karma Chameleon” 150 times a year for 30 years

King Hippo

back to heroine, of which I approve anyway

Wakezilla

If only there was a league, a football league in Canada that could benefit from being the only product being played today. Nah, that might get people interested.

Not like there’s a professional soccer league in North America that can play on Wednesdays and could capitalize on the World Cup. Why, that might get people interested if they were to show a game tonight!

King Hippo

Also, YES Revis HoF, NEIN first ballot

King Hippo

always remember that your family wants to talk to you as little as you want to talk to them
