NFL News:

  • After a penalty-filled game against the Swaguars, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said the new helmet rule “will cost people jobs”.
    • When reached for comment, his special assistant had this to add:
“Roger Goodell – now there’s a national disgrace.”
  • In news that will shock… SHOCK you, and possibly revive Crimebeat!, Richie Incognito has been arrested again.
    • Charges of disorderly conduct and making threats are his reward for allegedly creating a disturbance by “acting erratically and making the employees feel incredibly uncomfortable” while handling arrangements for his late father.
      • Incognito allegedly made a gun gesture toward one of the employees, and he said that he had guns in his truck. According to the source, weapons were indeed in his truck, and the weapons were impounded.
  • As confirmed last night, the [Redacteds] have signed Adrian Peterson to replace the injured Derrius Guice.
    • In a sign of how far he’s fallen, AP signed for the League minimum of $1.05 million, based upon his years of experience.
      • The minimum veteran minimum is $630,000.
    • As CBS Sports coldly notes, AP was released a year ago because the Vikings didn’t want to pay him $18 million.
      • That money instead has gone to Kirk Cousins.
  • Cut by the Seahawks, no doubt for questioning the veracity of the Russian hacking claims, Jon Ryan has ended up on the Bills.
    • Who were looking for a punter after Cory Carter tore his ACL on the weekend.

Finally, Victor Cruz has retired & joined ESPN’s booth as an analyst.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Orioles at Blue Jays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet / MLBN
    • Cardinals at Dodgers – 10:00PM | ESPN / TSN

  • WWE:
    • Smackdown – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360
      • The road to Miz-Bryan at Wrestlemania begins tonight!

God, the regular season can start anytime. Tom?

NOW I’M SAD AGAIN!

I’m eating an ice cream cone, in case anyone was wondering.

I wasn’t, but, the fire department and EMS spent the last hour in the building across the lot. Also, I’m watching 1996’s Broken Arrow, and sipping cheap beer, if you were wondering.

I am now eating an ice cream sandwich, in accordance with my master plan.

Wakezilla

How do you eat an ice cream cone?

Wakezilla

ToddlerZilla was given a Step 2 Whisper Ride Cruiser for her birthday. The instructions are in zoomed up pictures and does not show everything required in each step. Urge to go on a homicidal rampage is up to 11.

I found better instructions online though, which is nice. Holy fuck, though.

One day you wake up and everything has been replaced with an exact duplicate. It looks right but feels wrong. You can’t shake it. An uneasy man walks by you and whispers “maybe you’re the only one who changed”. But that can’t be right. You’re the center of the universe

What’s your point? Not to make generalizations without circumstance or context?

An ad hominem, short for argumentum ad hominem, is an attack on an argument made by attacking the character, motive, or other attribute of the person making the argument, rather than attacking the argument directly.

My point is that this guy is a self-described fuck-up based on his Twitter handle. My point has nothing to do with the text about the Fox news sucking, which I agree with completely. I’m more interested in this guy’s Twitter handle, which is really a desperate cry for help.

Yeah, according to his ex-wife Joss Whedon cheated on her multiple times with the ladies from his shows. Not cool, but…can any one of us say we’d do any differently? I mean, we could, but we’d be lying.

I’m not judging, but if I was you I’d say “yes honey, I am differently”.

Then, when she corrects your grammar, say thank you and offer to draw her a bath.

First reaction from my moderate Republican friends today: “yeah, but no one cares when you lie about sex and Trump is just going to spend time rounding up immigrants after that Iowa thing, so I don’t see why this is a big deal. He’s not getting impeached and might even still get reelected.”

If you need me, I’ll be smashing my head through various hard surfaces.

“ITS NOT POLITICAL THIS TIME!!!”

As I was about to say….

https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2018/08/20/vatican-priest-embarrassed-scandalized-prosecutor-deters-death-penalty-stance/1045682002/

A Vatican priest is more concerned about the local prosecutor’s views on the Death Penalty than Child Abusing Priests.

To put into context for those fortunate enough to avoid Ohio:

Joe Deters was speaking in his role as County Prosecutor of Hamilton County, Ohio (Cincinnati), right after a case where a person raped and murdered four women (two girls) after being paroled after serving a 16-year sentence for killing his girlfriend. In all 5 cases, he burned their bodies to avoid capture.

The Catholic Church has allowed and condoned a culture where priests who abuse children are absolved of all Earthly punishment and get off with reassignment.

This is my favorite part:

“You(r) comments imply that your personal conscience and experience have given you moral insight superior to that of your church,” Mueller wrote to Deters. “May I suggest that this is indicative of a kind of spiritual pride or rigidity on your part. An antidote would be for you to chat with a good confession.”

They are concerned about the soul of a prosecutor not following the Pope? What about the souls of the priests who have committed these ungodly sins?! And what about the souls of those who have been hurt by the priests, who have turn their backs from God, due to this torture?!?! That’s what really pisses me off! These assholes haven’t risk their own immortal souls, but the souls of those they hurt!!!

I’m a sinner. I admit and confess it. I have no right to judge anyone anymore than this priest does. But if this priest is so concerned about wayward souls, I’d direct them to the priest they are protecting. Because I doubt they will get the same Mercy their victims will get when they are called before the Altar to stand Judgment for their sins.

I made a bacon cheeseburger that I want to have sex with. I’ve been cooking with bacon grease for a while. I don’t give a shit. I’m ready to die this way.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

My entire childhood; almost everything cooked in a skillet started (at least) with bacon grease.

Ian Scott McCormick

I could cook dogshit in that stuff and it’s going to be at least decent. I’ve been browning meatballs in the stuff before I threw them in the oven. Browning meat for lasagna. Doing pancakes. Brownie batter. I did salmon, which defeats the entire health benefits of salmon, but whatever. It’s a fucking cheat code.

I felt the same way when I had bacon in college. My parents overcooked their bacon, to the point where it was a black fragile strip with no taste.

I had a Bacon Cheeseburger when I was 32 from a Lunch Truck at work. I damn near broke down into tears for the taste I was feeling.

Ian Scott McCormick

See, I don’t go that deep with it. I go enough for some snap, but it’s not dust in my mouth. I just want enough grease to put in the ceramic dish for the fridge. I’ve got videos of my two year old girl screaming “BACON” and grabbing the stuff. We’re all going to die of heart attacks in a year. It’s kind of sweet, really.

He has another trial next month which I believe is a state court issue, which means trump cant pardon a conviction.

I think you be correct. I just wanted to tamp down immediate expectations. This’ll take quite some time to play out.

Spur

accepting a pardon is a admission of guilt. How would that effect related state charges and outgoing investigations?

It means any state charges for similar crimes would be instant convictions.
