After the last six months of electioneering, I know many people feel one of two sentiments:

or

So, you can spend your evening hate-drinking & hate-watching election results, or you can spend it here with friends, hate-drinking & telling dick jokes about election results. I know you’ll make the right decision.


NFL News:

  • It’s from yesterday, but it’s hilarious nonetheless: former offensive lineman David Diehl said Raiders coaches used to give JaMarcus Russell blank tapes to determine if he was studying film.
    • When quizzed the next day, he would give answers about blitz packages and such, when in fact he was pulling shit out of the air because he didn’t watch them.
    • Bleacher Report helpfully points out that other players available in that draft were Calvin Johnson, Joe Thomas, Patrick Willis or Darrelle Revis.
  • The Saints spent Tuesday working out Dez Bryant & Brandon Marshall.
    • They need a counter-balance to Michael Thomas. The three other Saints receivers had a combined two catches on Sunday.
      • Breesus needs sure-handed disciples.
  • God bless Bruce Arians – he says he’d consider the Browns job, or recommend Chuck Pagano for it.
    • Likely because he’d have to come sub in for Pagano after a year.
    • People forget Arians was the Browns OC the last time they went to the playoffs in 2002.
  • Somebody lit the GAMBLOR signal: the Cardinals opened as a 17-point underdog to the Chiefs this weekend.
    • The most recent big point ‘dog was the Bills, who were 16.5-point underdogs to the Vikings earlier this season and wound up winning the game by 21 points.
    • Beerguyrob’s observation?


A brief “thank you” shout-out to the staff & commentists of [DFO] – we have achieved a modicum of success that should be recognized: we have surpassed being the 350,000th most popular site on the internet.

I have one of my students using Alexa.com‘s free internet stats as part of his specialized learning about IT. (He looks up things like Amazon, CNN, various gaming sites he likes, et cetera. It keeps him busy.) Every so often, I check in to see how we’re doing as an entity. Here’s what it looked like back on October 2nd:

We are well behind sites like Deadspin,

but we also aren’t trying to be sites like Deadspin, so we’re just competing with ourselves to make the site better. As last week’s Halloween spectacular showed, I think we do that on a consistent basis.

FYI – the Top-10 sites worldwide, according to Alexa?

  1. google.com
  2. youtube.com
  3. facebook.com
  4. baidu.com – The leading Chinese language search engine.
  5. wikipedia.org
  6. qq.com – An instant messaging service developed by Shenzhen Tencent Computer System.
  7. yahoo.com
  8. taobao.com – Taobao Marketplace is online shopping for Chinese consumers.
  9. Tmall.com – Tmall.com is a premium online Chinese shopping site within Alibaba Group, and NOT an alternative dating site for curious Chinese men.
  10. amazon.com

Kind of like hitting 4000 posts or 500,000 comments, we couldn’t make any milestones without a dedicated group of people creating, reading & commenting on our #content. So thank you to everyone who helped us achieve this.

It’s surprising to me how much resistance there is to marijuana legalization. Like, it’ll still win by 10%, but that there’s 45% of the population opposed is crazy.

Amazing. The News is just like, “well, we should see if this works out because, over time, it may not be beneficial for them to commit so much voter suppression.”

Fuck the media. It’s as much a game to them as it is these monsters in office.

Two outcomes possible in the Casa de Raza tonight:

1 – Blue wave happens and there’s a course correction in this nation. I get shitfaced drunk.

2 – Republicans maintain control of the Senate AND House, we continue down the darkest timeline and the country continues to morph into some unrecognizable land that I did NOT grow up in. I get shitfaced drunk.

I’m not going to work tomorrow no matter the outcome.

Senate isn’t happening for Dems. House is looking awfully good, though.
