It was a pretty good week – it hasn’t rained in Vancouver in almost two weeks. The view across the water at the big city has been really, really nice.

Also, I figured out the proper pizza : alcohol ratio at night in order to keep me pleasant at work the next day. Sometimes, it’s the small victories that are the sweetest.

It did kind of suck that Le’Veon ruined my pieces by not actually returning, but that’s the capricious nature of blogging. Oh well – TO THE ALCOHOL GAMES!


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Dodgers at Brewers – 8:00PM | FS1 / Sportsnet
      • Game 7, Bay-Bay!

  •  NHL:
    • Blues at Leafs – 7:00PM | CBC / NHLN
    • Habs at Sens – 7:00PM | Sportsnet / City
    • Bruins at Canucks – 10:00PM | Sportsnet / City
    • Preds at Oilers – 10:00PM | CBC
  • NCAA:
    • Mississippi State at LSU – 7:00PM | ESPN
    • UCF at East Carolina – 7:00PM | ESPN2
    • Fresno State at New Mexico – 7:00PM | ESPNU
    • Ohio State at Purdue – 7:30PM | ABC
    • Oregon at Washington State – 7:30PM | FOX
    • Arizona at UCLA – 10:30PM | ESPN2
  • CFL:

  • NBA:
    • Rockets at Lakers – 10:30PM | ESPN / TSN

Get a good night’s sleep – the London game is at 10:00AM Eastern. DON’T FORGET TO IRISH THOSE COFFEES!

It’s a departure from the X posts below, but this song is one of my favorites, and it’s not even the one I tried to get played when my wife and I renewed our vows, (which didn’t happen, because it was in South Africa and no one had a clue what the fuck I was talking about, including my wife):

Horatio Cornblower

This is the one I wanted at whatever-the-hell-it-is-you-call-it-when-you-renew-your-vows-ceremony. It makes sense because we met at a bar and we closed that fucker down.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Where in South Africa were you? I used to live there, if you didn’t notice the 1000 other times I mentioned it.

Oh, that gives me an idea – someone should use “Letting the Days Go Bye” as a subtitle for a bye week update.

yeah right

I’ll clean this up.

It’s interesting, Boston vs. LA is a pretty classic matchup in any sport except hockeyball.

Music!

I saw them live on their 40th anniversary tour last fall. Went up the night before I had to give a closing argument in a trial. Wasn’t even close to being a choice.

Great show.

And I met John X Doe and D.J. Bonebreak at Club Iota in Arlington Virginia, which was the same storefront where I got my first haircut. I’ve never met Billy Zoom.

They were all on stage at the same time when I saw them, and none of those fuckers even waved.

A few years ago a friend of mine, who knows far more about music than I ever will, put it best when he said “I firmly believe that, for about 5-10 years, X was the absolute soul of rock n’ roll, and it wasn’t close”

My cousin Kevin went to every Clash show in New York City. He has a website “Forgotten NY dot com” and he’s an awesome writer too. Tell him Johnny sent you.

Good stuff.

I saw this happening during the 1st game when Ohio State’s defense was struggling to stop Oregon State. Big Ten teams aren’t designed to outscore the other team in a shootout. They get the lead and then tire out the defense by running the ball. That’s the reason why we won the playoffs in ’15 when Zeke went crazy. The front line of Alabama and Oregon got more tired as the game progressed.

Oh well. Recruit better defense guys and O-line.

It takes a while for hanging skin to fade away I lost 30 pounds and I felt like I was wearing a shirt at times. I can only imagine how he feels after losing 100+ or so.

Col. Duke LaCross

You aren’t kidding. I had WLS two years ago and dumped 265 lbs. I look like a war crime naked. I also just turned 40, so I know it’s not bouncing back. Gonna have to get skin surgery to look remotely normal.

Don’t regret it one goddamn bit.

wait, we do all get the CBS London game in the morning! WOO!!

No way, Hippo. I don’t wake up early for the Los Angeles Chargers. San Diego Chargers, maybe.
