Your “These Are The Mean Streets Of Northern Ontario” Thursday Night Football Open Thread

There were some shenanigans out my way that had the locals gums a-flappin’, I’ll tell you what. I’ve got a 40 minute drive to work and on my way there 6 police cruisers, sirens a-blarin’, tore past me on the highway. This is quite unusual in my very quiet, out of the way community of approx. 9,000 yokels. Sure there’s a druggy underbelly that exists but “busts”, if/when they occur, are done on the QT. It took me some time to find out the details but it turns out there was a nutball with a gun running around the street that I grew up on. This just doesn’t occur here. You’ll be relieved to know that he was tracked down by a K-9 unit and gave himself up.

Meanwhile, a business owner ( in the very loosest sense of the word) in the community of 1,100 people where I slave (hah!) away was arrested by a SWAT team and dragged away in cuffs! Northern Ontario Facebook must be on fire right now. DETAILS TO FOLLOW!

TO THE GAME!

Packers/SeaHawks:

One thing not mentioned very often regarding the two qb’s playing tonight is that they both tend to give up a fair amount of sack yardage because, being fellers that can run, they hold on to the ball longer than the average bear. Seattle qb Wilson is second in yards lost with 204 and Rodgers is right behind him with 184. In first? I’ll give you no guesses-you’re right, it’s Eli. First round rb Rashaad Penney had himself a day last week vs. the Rams vaunted d-line so expect his touches to increase as the season plays itself out. Rodgers’ young, explosive play-makers have already spread their wings. Aaron Jones and Bird Law expert Marquez Valdes-Scantling have already put the giddy-up in the Packers O.

Tons of sports offerings tonight for all y’all eyebulbs. Let’s chat. GO SILLYCUSE!

Maybe I’m drunk (yes) but these last few ounces just taste like alcohol.

The cat finally got off her lazy ass and brought home a dead rat. Just earned herself the privilege of eating some of last night’s green chile stuffed pork loin.

Hey, just wandered in from pre-emptive snow clean up. So, is Mike McCarthy in some sort of unholy alliance with Aaron Rodger’s disowned family, or just completely incompetent?

Yes

I want to learn American history through Japanese comics made in 1861.

Here’s John Adams fighting a snake

Senor Weaselo

How do you think the Join Or Die snake got segmented?

Wakezilla

Here’s the incredibly jacked Benjamin Franklin firing a cannon that he holds in his bare hands, while John Adams directs him where to fire.

Careful. I almost got banned for showing the Betsy Ross with her first draft of the American Flag one.

Hint: it had an octopus…

Wakezilla

Show me a picture where Betsy Ross doesn’t look like she’d be into Octopus hentai and I will show you a fake picture.

Senor Weaselo

Well Senorita Weaselo just learned I get drunk munchies because I could go for a rare burger about now. Anyone wanna make a run for me?

ballsofsteelandfury

/ resists temptation to make rare fur burger joke.

Senor Weaselo

Unfortunately she lives a half hour away without traffic and shitty weather, and I’m now drunk. I will see her tomorrow though.

No rage, just confusion. It worked fine in Chrome, not Firefox which is weird as shit.

I still don’t see the Dolphins at the bye post. Did I ban myself from seeing it?

I see it, but I don’t see it on the main page. Did you hit a thing!l?

Mr. Ayo

It’s on the front page too. You guys are tripping.

Your byline on the Dolphins post has a red circle and a slash over it.

ballsofsteelandfury

You used the updates tag, which relegated it to the side bar. I’ve fixed it.

ballsofsteelandfury

Also, have you been popping Hippo pills?

Wakezilla

It works in Chrome, not in Firefox.

ballsofsteelandfury

That shouldn’t be. Did you see my comment about the “Updates” tag? Avoid it unless you have a small post.

Wakezilla

Thanks Balls
