NFL News:

  • Bruce Irvin, freed from the Raiders, has decided to play for the Falcons. 
    • Irvin was born & raised in the Atlanta area. Having played for Dan Quinn in Seattle was also an attraction.
      • “This was a dream [come] true,” Irvin told ESPN’s Vaughn McClure. “The Patriots and Steelers offered more money, but being able to play for my city and my people, you just can’t put a price on that.”
    • Also a dream: he gets his full Raiders salary for 2018, plus a pro-rated contract from the Falcons, earning him over $9.5 million for this season.
  • Dez Bryant will likely be a Saint by Saturday is a Saint.
    • The feed actually updated as I was typing the first sentence.
    • Negotiations began soon after his workout ended Tuesday.
    • Fun scheduling fact: The Saints play in Dallas on November 29th.
  • Bleacher Report took a run at trying to
    1. Drive Mike McCarthy out of Green Bay, and
    2. Into the arms of the Cleveland Browns.

It’s nothing any of us haven’t heard or screamed about before, but since it was on CNN’s main page it merits observation because non-sports fans type people will come across it.

  • Election results with former players or impact on the NFL:
    • Elected:
      • Former Colt Anthony Gonzalez won election in Ohio’s 16th District as a Republican.
      • Former Titan Colin Allred won election in Texas’ 32nd District as a Democrat.
      • Former Raider/Chief/Viking Napoleon Harris won a seat in the Illinois State Senate running unopposed as a Democrat.
      • Former Packer/[Redacted] Clint Didier won the Franklin County, Washington, Commissioner’s race as a Republican.
    • Florida voted on a state constitutional amendment (Amendment 3) that requires any statewide gambling expansion to garner 60% support. It passed thanks to support from Disney & the Seminole Tribe.
      • It was opposed by all three Florida NFL teams, with the Dolphins openly campaigning against it.
      • The loss of a potential revenue stream is speculated to be another linchpin to Shad Khan moving the Jags to London.

    • The official synopsis:
      • “Frank tries to recruit Mac for the gang’s float for the Gay Pride Parade; Frank comes to the realization that Mac will never be secure with his sexual identity unless he comes out to his father.”
    • From the AV Club‘s preview:
      • “Mac is struggling to find his place in the world as a gay man on the 13th finale of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and the final scenes are not to be missed. That’s about all we’ll say.”

It was fun watching the news & reading your election comments last night. So many mood swings. I CAN’T BELIEVE METEOR DIDN’T WIN!

I just had the worst takeout Thai food of my life. If I vomit, it’s not from drinking or bulimia, especially not the second.

King Hippo

I wonder if that’s what retirement is, reminiscing about one’s best gastrointestinal distress moments

When I retire I will want to reminisce about my best moments of ornate Japanese bondage sessions.

I mean, I too hope to be in an opium-induced fog, but I don’t see much hope in the path of our drug laws.

I don’t think I’ve ever had bad Thai food. In SF I ordered at a restaurant and didn’t think all the food came, but it had; all four bites were good and the presentation was marvelous tho. We went to a seafood place right after to make up the difference.

The smash cut to him beating one girl to death with the other girl while she’s trapped in her sleeping bag may be the hardest I ever laughed at a movie

I want a Kamala/Beto ticket now. Retail politics is still well-important, and I need some shred of belief to foolishly cling to.

“Show Your Belly 2020” still my favorite. That was a close second.

That’s the best hard sell for vest bombs. Soft sell, paisley lining with aluminum screws.

Pretty sure Napoleon Harris has been in the state legislature for years and was reelected again last night.

SonOfSpam

I support Napoleon. Four legs good, two legs bad.

Colin Allred seems pretty cool. Glad Beto helped paved the way for him to get into Congress.

I prefer “groovy” legislators.

That’s a beautiful pick for the banner artwork, BTW.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Agreed. Teenage Low Commander would laminate that as a poster and put it on his wall.

SonOfSpam

Right next to my, uh, I mean someone’s crusty Christie Brinkley poster.

It is very nicely done. Classy even.
How’d WE end up with it?

On tonight’s episode of who pissed tWBS off today….

Earlier, I called one of the local news stations. Now I don’t watch local news generally speaking because they are mindless fucktards more often than not. But Mom watches. She thinks it makes her smarter. Poor old gal.

So I’m walking through the room and I hear the sounds of a story about a local WWII veteran. That caught my attention, because WWII is one of my big history interests. So I stopped and watched. This guy was present, in person, during the Nuremberg trials. Pretty cool. You’ve got my attention now.

So, during the story, they included a soundbite of this guy saying how nice of a person and how personable Hermann Goring was.

ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME? YOU GUYS REALLY THOUGHT IT WAS OK TO BROADCAST THAT? I DON’T GIVE A RAT’S ASS IF THIS OLD RACIST FUCKER SAID IT YOU SHOULD HAVE EDITED THAT PART OUT AT THE VERY LEAST. CONGRATULATIONS FOR OFFENDING EVERY JEWISH VIEWER YOU USED TO HAVE!!!!!

So, I decide to call them and tell them so. But I’ll cut to the chase….

tWBS: Do you even know what story I’m talking about? Or who Hermann Goring was?
Girl who answered my call: Well, sort of.
tWBS: smgdh.
GWAMC: Well, I’ll pass along your comments to the management.
tWBS: Good. Maybe buy a history book too while you’re at it?

I cannot believe they would air that soundbite.

“That Hannibal Lecter was very well read, personable, and a great cook!”

If it’s any consolation, of the nazi bigs, Goering was the least evil. In fact his main role was to give the buffoons and weasels legitimacy. He’d led the flying circus after the Red Baron’s death and represented the Junker warrior elite that largely rejected Hitler. Goering’s role was primarily with the Luftwaffe and he pretty much avoided Final Solution meetings. By the end he was a drunken, drug addled mess who was complicit in all of the evil but not a driving force. In defense of the old guy on your tv box, Goering’s minders weren’t necessarily up on all the true horrors of the Holocaust, and most found Goering to be genial and instead of being a murderous syncophant, he was more of a regular military sort. In fact they made sure he had access to the morphine he was addicted to while imprisoned and made it possible for him to OD before he was executed.

tl;dr Goering was a shitbag, but the old vet may not be – also I wear an onion on my belt

ballsofsteelandfury

Can Low Commander do a Photoshop of a Seamus baby head on top of Grandpa Simpson yelling at a cloud?

SonOfSpam

C’mon man. Good people on both sides.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I don’t know if anyone else is freaking out about Sessions getting the axe and a Trump crony (well, MORE of a Trump crony) being put in his place, but I’m not. It was going to happen eventually. The fact that it happened less than 24 hours after Republicans lost control of the House shows that it’s coming from a place of panic and frustration, which is certainly better than it coming from a position of strength. Beyond that, Sessions is a slimy piece of shit and will be fully invested in covering his own ass at this point, so any vestige of loyalty he felt towards Trump will be out the window. Cohen and Manafort tried to stand firm and protect Trump, and it ruined them. I doubt any of Trump’s insiders didn’t take notice of that.

TL/DR Fuck Jeff Sessions

nomonkeyfun

Trump may appoint him to the Federal bench.

But yes double fuck Sessions.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

This is playing right into my prediction he’ll run for his old Senate seat in 2020 crushing Doug Jones but at least 20 points.

nomonkeyfun

Especially considering Jones beat the pederast by less than 2 points. That guy had fairly close races for his state Supreme court seat even before the allegations were coming out.

SonOfSpam

I think Sessions is already working with Mueller. And, of course, Keebler.

Also, he’s a piece of shit.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Welp, it looks like the people have spoken and BOLTMAN is getting a new home.

I pity the poor construction crew that unearths his lair.

WCS

They’ll find what’s left of Caleb Sturgis.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

I’m sure his flesh leather will go to good use. Maybe a lampshade or something decorative.
