NFL News:

  • For those of you who live in the region: Chiefs-Rams tickets went on sale Wednesday.
    • They are setting aside seats for the first responders fighting the fires and police who answered the Thousand Oaks shooting call.
    • It’ll be the first Monday Night game at the Coliseum since 1985.
  • Scorned fans planning the trip to Mexico City are already talking lawsuits.
    • Language like this doesn’t help: It’ll be up to the NFL to decide whether fans will be refunded their tickets for Estadio Azteca. Some hotel reservations won’t be; neither will most airfare. And the excitement of a life-changing trip can’t be replaced.
  • Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jeff Rohrer publicly came out as gay in an interview with Outsports.
    • Rohrer spent six seasons with the Cowboys, appearing in 83 games between 1982 and 1987.
    • He said he never felt uncomfortable on the Cowboys, as he figured his teammates didn’t care.
      • Rohrer concurred with Michael Irvin’s assessment during a 2011 interview with Out magazine that the Cowboys he played on would’ve welcomed an openly gay player on the team.
    • Rohrer is now a successful commercial producer in Los Angeles. In the last few years he’s produced three Super Bowl commercials, for Doritos, Heinz and the NFL.
  • Big Ben really knows how to make teammates feel like friends:
    • “I texted him yesterday before the deadline asking him — texted — saying I was hoping he was going to show up, and if he decided not to I wish him nothing but the best.”
  • A Jets fan is blaming his DWI on their loss to the Bills.
    • 57-year-old Christopher Greyshock, of West Milford, NJ, was charged after he rear-ended another vehicle.
    • Greyshock, who reportedly had an open bottle of whiskey in his car and was suspected of possessing marijuana as well, apparently told responding officers: “I drank too much because the Jets suck.”

Finally, the NFL got out its December flex pen:

  • December 2:
    • Niners-Seahawks moved from primetime to afternoon
    • Chargers-Steelers moved from afternoon to primetime
  • December 9:
    • Steelers-Raiders moved from primetime to afternoon
    • Rams-Bears moved from afternoon to primetime

I actually approve of the December 2 change, as it means I can get home from Seattle at a reasonable hour.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Capitals at Jets – 8:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Blues at Blackhawks – 8:00PM | NBCSN
    • Ducks at Golden Knights – 10:30PM | NBCSN
  • NBA:
    • Pistons at Raptors – 7:30PM | Sportsnet1
    • Pelicans at Timberwolves – 8:00PM | ESPN / TSN
    • Trail Blazers at Lakers – 10:30PM | ESPN / Sportsnet1
  • NCAA:
    • Football:
      • Buffalo at Ohio – 7:00PM | ESPN2 / TSN3
      • Miami (Ohio) at Northern Illinois – 8:00PM | ESPNU
    • Basketball:
      • Michigan at Villanova – 6:30PM | FS1
      • Marquette at Indiana – 8:30PM | FS1

It’s been a shitty, rainy day in Vancouver, so I recommend you follow my lead & curl up and watch some sports this evening. BEATS WORKING FOR FREE!

As much as I shit on Calgary,I have to give Calgarians credit for voting No to host the Olympics. The bid was insanely flawed and some of the bullshit the Yes side was peddling ($300 million just for security, which for comparison sake, 2010 Vancouver cost over $800 million) was so laughably offensive, it’s surprising the No side didn’t win by a larger margin.

TL/DR: Calgary chose food over the circus

LeBron is currently 10 points (and 19,000 women) away from passing Wilt Chamberlain on the all-time scoring list.

Hey fellas/ladyfellas…I’m getting stupidly optimistic about this Lakers team. If they go from “kinda fun” to “actually good” I’m gonna be more annoying than I currently am, which is a lot. Fair warning (great album).

Ooops, mobile sucks. I just posted this on last night’s open thread, lol. So here it is again….

“At the pool hall with mah baby, drinking and eating and playing.

Yes, she’s kicking my ass. Beginner’s damn luck”

nomonkeyfun

I read that as she’s LICKING your ass at first. I thought you had the “beginner’s luck”, not her.

It was flammable though, could be dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken.

I forgot how good “Batman: Brave and the Bold” was. Its like they watched the 1960s Batman show and said “We can make this work”. And they did.

Finally rid of the giant monstrosity of a sling I had. The shoulder still is sore as hell but at least I wont have to haul this thing around New York:

The good thing about the adjustability is that later you can fuck it.

Last night I slept for 9 straight hours for the first time in forever. All it takes is being sick as a dog and drunk as a monkey. This advice is free.

Redshirt

Due to my brother not having a car and needing a ride to work, I’ve been sleeping for 2-3 hours, waking up at 3:00 to drive him into work, and then sleeping for 2-3 hours because I cannot fall back asleep instantly. I’m not certain, but I think I’m now insane. Well, more insane at least.

I’m with you on the curling up part, but I have RDR2 instead of sports.

TOPIC ALERT:

Band that you thought sucked balls but were actually boss-

Me? You may have noticed them. The Cowboy Junkies first live album was a revelation. I thought that they were a gimmicky cover band. I was mistaken.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Nada Surf. It’s a stretch to say that I ever thought they sucked balls, but my first impression was that they were unremarkable in the vein of, say, Stroke 9, and they most certainly are not.

Brick Meathook
Brick Meathook

I was a Zeppelin head and I thought Cowboy Junkies were amazing. Their “cover” version of “Sweet Jane” is beyond amazing, and is better than Lou Reed on his best day, but then he was a junkie songwriter rather than a singer, so it makes sense.

Brick Meathook

. . . and then I scroll down and there it is.

Dead Kennedy’s – I thought they were just a loud bad punk band, then I actually listened to the lyrics and understood what they were singing about.

Brick Meathook

I always liked The Ramones but always heard them on loud amplified speakers, kind of how they should be heard. However, I listened to their live album and their debut album on good headphones and it was a revelation of very familiar music that I thought I knew. Try it sometime.

blaxabbath

That girl who sings Friday.

Gotta get down with my frieeends…

nomonkeyfun

Tegan and Sara.
I heard a song or two from one of their early albums, and thought they just got the record deal to capitalize on the lesbian twin thing. Heard them about 10 years later and damn.

The songs were probably from If it was you.

I knew they didn’t suck balls (hehe), but wasn’t a fan at first.

scotchnaut

love this tune.

I also love your dog, if you have one.

How tired is Wakezilla? I fell asleep for about 2 minutes at work and only woke up because I caught myself snoring….and I was still typing away. LoL.

I’m really curious as to what you typed.

Senor Weaselo

Rohrer concurred with Michael Irvin’s assessment during a 2011 interview with Out magazine that the Cowboys he played on would’ve welcomed an openly gay player on the team.

The fans on the other hand would have been outraged as they wanted a linebacker, not a linetopper or linebottomer no offensce.

I’m thinking that first responders are gonna pick up those tickets real quick. Get it? Get it?

That’s really the 911 operator, but does he/she get free tickets?!?
