Wow, what a day.

I ended a relationship and got accused of hit and run.

OK, for the record, those two things are unrelated.  I was not accused of hit and run by the young lady I ended the relationship with.

Well, that’s not exactly true.  But she didn’t say it in those terms.

But the Raleigh-Durham International Airport Police have accused me of an actual hit and run.  On a fucking light pole….no shit.  Check this out….I got a real citation and everything….

…you did lawfully and willfully operate a motor vehicle on a public vehicular area and fail to immediately stop the vehicle [you] were driving at the scene of an accident and collision in which [you] were involved.  This collision resulted in property damage to two concrete ballards and a light pole belonging to Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority and….

Oh fuck it.  You get the point.

And what the fuck is a “Concrete Ballard”??????  The Baltimore Orioles used to have a pitcher named Jeff Ballard.  And he pitched like his hands were made of concrete.  Is that close?

And really?  Hit and run on a light pole?  You gotta be shitting me!!!!

If you’d used better concrete ballards to begin with, I could have never even bumped your precious light pole anyway….you get that, right?  So it’s kinda more your fault than mine.  In a way.  Sort of.

Anywhoooooo….

I have a court date and everything.  Should I buy a new suit or just show up in board shorts like The Dude  would?

Or maybe I should just abscond.

Fuck that parking lot.  AMIRITE???????

Fortunately, my insurance company has already settled with “The Parking Lot” I ran over.  And my truck named “Dave” even gets a brand new bumper next week in spite of the fact that it’s his damned fault I got caught to begin with….

Still Sexy After All These Years

Unrelated:  Could someone please remind me to take his license plate off the next time I go to the airport?  K, thx.

smgdh.

*Note….

I had already responsibly handled the property damage portion of this incident before I received the hit and run legal citation from RDU Police.

Yes, that means I’m kinda pissed off now.

So, What’s Going On Tonight?

Not a damned thing, more or less.

There’s baseball…

  • Red Sox at Phillies – 7:00pmEDT – TV: MLBN (regional split)
  • Rays at Yanks – 7:00pmEDT – TV: MLBN (regional split)

Full Schedule

Let’s see, what else?  Oh, there’s also a four hour Fantasy Football Special on ESPN from 7pm to 11pm EDT.  But I guarantee you they know less than we do already.  If they knew shit, it wouldn’t take four hours to say so.  So fuck that.

Little League Softball (ESPN2) and Rodeo (ESPNU) appears to be what is rounding things out so….it might be a good night to read.

Hey, at least there will be crappy pre-season football beginning Thursday.  Right?

 

It’s Gonna Take A Team Effort Tonight

Seriously.  With such a crappy sports lineup tonight, we’re gonna need everyone pitching in to get this thing off the ground.

For now, Imma go clear my head by taking a drive and…

Awwwwww crap.

 

/calls insurance agent

(Hi!!!!!  Yeah, it’s me again!!!!!!)

Have a great night, everyone.

Ted Gregory.

“The legend goes that Gregory was selected almost sight unseen by the team. He never played a game for the Broncos. He was traded to the Saints before the start of his rookie season and played just three games in his NFL career. Two honorable mentions for a Denver draft bust: WR Marcus Nash, the first-round pick in 1998 (30th overall), who had four receptions as a rookie in a short tenure, and Jarvis Moss, taken 17th overall in 2007, who had two starts in five-year career.”

R-Pax will be up there, but not as bad.

Wakezilla

I’d say Nash gets a pass because 30th overall is essentially a crap shoot.

Akili Smith was a CFL hero!

/played once then got cut.

WCS

So, about the same career he had in Dallas?

Redshirt

Okay (takes a shot of Jack Daniels). Lets do this!

1960s: Bob Johnson was a good pick and solid player. Greg Cook was an excellent pick before he got hurt. His blown out shoulder cost Cincy a Super Bowl.

1970s: Don’t know most of these players. Before my time. Issac Curtis was a part of the ’81 Super Bowl team. Archie Griffin is the only two-time Heisman winner. He was drafted 24th overall by Cincinnati and was never heard from again. Jack Thompson was a harbinger of QB busts to come.

1980s: Anthony Munoz. Enough said. Other than Tim McGee (solid WR), I don’t know any of these guys.

1990s: … (takes another shot of Jack Daniels)…(takes another shot of Jack Daniels)…okay. Lets stare into that abyss.

1990: James Francis: Starts off the Decade of Debacle with an average at best player.
1991: Alfred Williams: Great player. Probably praises the Heavens for Free Agency.
1992a: David Klinger: Yep, THAT David Klingler. Product of a Run and Shoot Offense. Tried to turn him into something he wasn’t. Didn’t give him the O-line to protect him. Rumors of Paul Brown on his dead bed telling his son, Mike, not to draft Klingler are unsubstantiated.
1992b: Darryl Williams: Decent player really.
1993: John Copeland: Was great in Tecmo Super Bowl 3: Final Edition. Didn’t translate on the field.
1994: Dan Wilkinson: Underperformed, but probably because of coaching.
1995: Ki-Jana Carter: Actually a very good pick…at least until the Silverdome Turf Monster got involved.
1996: Willie Anderson: Excellent pick. If he played for another team, he’d be in the Hall of Fame. FACT!
1997: Reinard Wilson: Oh, yeah, I forgot about this guy.
1998: Takeo Spikes and Brian Simmons: Two great picks that fixed the LB corps for a few years. Too bad about the rest of the team.
1999: Akili Smith: Yep. THAT Akili Smith. Didn’t study. Didn’t try to learn. At least he admits it though.

(shudders, crying, drink another shot of Jack Daniels)

2000: Peter Warrick: Had college talent. Didn’t translate. Probably has to do with the QBs. Most likely. Its the QBs.
2001: Justin Smith: Please see 1991.
2002: Levi Jones: Rare bread of good bad player. Technically good, not great.
2003: Carson Palmer. Great player before the knee. Very good after until the arm.
2004: Chris Perry: The first “…what?!” pick of Marvin Lewis’s career.
2005: David Pollack: Another “Great pick but got hurt” pick. Broke his neck, but he’s fine now.
2006: Johnathan Please see 1991 and 2001.
2007: Leon Halll: Very good choice. Solid player.
2008: Keith Rivers: Okay pick. Got destroyed by Hines Ward on a Blindside Block (a Steeler with a bad hit – unthinkable!) and wasn’t the same after.
2009: Andre Smith: Levi Jones 2.0.

(primal growling, finishes bottle of Jack Daniels)
2010: Jermaine Gresham: Average TE. Responsible for one or two Playoff Losses.
2011: A.J. Green: Hopefully he gets the recognition he deserves. If not with the Bengals than with someone other than the Steelers, Ravens, Browns or Patriots.
2012a: Dre Kirkpatrick: Okay pick. Good, but not great.
2012b: Kevin Zeitler: Overrated. Way overrated.
2013: Tyler Eifert: Yet another “Great pick but gets hurt” pick.
2014: Darqueze Dennard: I honestly forgot we had this guy.
2015: Cedric Ogbuehi: Bengals get cocky by drafting a hurt player. Set the franchise back.
2016: William Jackson III: Too soon to tell, but his name was coming on the radio quite a bit on pass breakups.
2017: John Ross: Bengals pull a Raiders by drafting a fast receiver. It worked about the same.

(breaks bottles of Jack Daniels over head; passes out)

Redshirt, you’re my favorite devout NFL fan/seemingly reasonable conservative. Please don’t change.

Wakezilla

EA loved David Pollack. I remember he was pretty measty in Madden. I’m actually shocked to see he only played 2 years in the league.

WCS

Falling down a flight of steps, and fracturing your spine, AKA the Cincy Bengals Special, will do that.

Redshirt

Tried out Madden 18’s Longshot thing. It is a nice escape, though my friend’s inability to shut the hell up kept giving me negative character issues. I quit before it went to the logical conclusion of me choosing whether or not to punch him in the throat for closing me my shot with an NFL team.

If they did something like that for the NHL franchise I’d buy it again. Instead it’s now a $60 roster update

nomonkeyfun

You lost the shot to win with an NFL team when you picked the Bengals.

In my defense, my earliest memory of watching a Bengals game involved the 1993 Patriots. If you’re a stupid kid and you have your hometown team in white jersey with tiger stripes on their helmets and the other team with a bland as hell jersey that somehow has at least two competing color schemes, who do you root for?

So that’s it. Now you know why I’m a Bengals fan. Because of the shitty Patriots uniform they wore for one season in 1993. If they would’ve gone straight from the 1980s red one to the underrated ones of the late 90s, I’d probably be happy as a Colts fan or maybe even a Steelers fan.

Wakezilla

I don’t remember those jerseys at all. It reminds me of a pro-bowl jersey

My son is taking the alcohol education course UConn requires all new students to take.

One of the alternative they suggest to drinking is bowling.

There is absolutely no way that bowling is not greatly enhanced by bowling.
