A couple of things:

That warmup skate is awesome

I remember Chicago inexplicably being incredible in that game, which is funny because the real life team back then was a dumpster fire

I’m watching videos of that Russian couple with the pet cougar that was/is a runt. I’m never sure if this is a good thing or not.

Idk. It would never survive in nature, but it was born in a zoo. It was never going to be in nature anyway. It seems fine and they’ve done a lot for it and walk it twice a day, but it’s still a fucking cougar living in a Russian apartment.

Here’s a fun gambling thing, I’ve had my best success with the NBA. Particularly betting Eastern conference and the under. The Brooklyn Nets were playing the Wizards tonight and the over was 230! They barely scored 190 combined. There’s money to be made here. Go eastern conference on eastern conference and you have a shot.

Vegas is getting hammered by the west and the over and they carried that to the eastern conference.
Don’t tell anyone. They’ll readjust the lines.

Fronkenshteen

Just so everyone knows, I DONT BET NBA, so I promise I will not Mush this advice.

Fronkenshteen

Can I ask fantasy shite tonight? I don’t want to pollute the thread with shit people don’t want to see.

Redshirt

We’re not supposed to pollute the thread with shit? Hell, that’s 73.4% of all my posts!

ballsofsteelandfury

And 79% of my articles!

WCS

You’re both right!

Fire away sir.

Fronkenshteen

ok
– fuck happened to Josh Adams today?
– David Moore vs SF or Chris Conley @ OAK? (Watkins OUT. Conley WR2 behind Hill & Kelce in peck order. Not sure about RB situation there. I remember Ware was a RB1, but suffered a BAD knee injury)

ballsofsteelandfury

1- No idea.
2- Conley because OAK suuuuucks.

Hope that helps!

Fronkenshteen

Yes, it does. Cheers!

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

A. Hip injury to Adams. Find someone else since Monday is too late to substitute.
2. Conley. Moore is too high variance and SF is actually good at Defensing the pass.

Fronkenshteen

Fuck. My money league opponent lucked into Spencer Ware, and now this. I have AP on my bench, and there’s no one better than that on my waiver wire. Pretty sure he’s gonna tank hard this week, though. Oh well. Not the first time I’ve seen the dollar bill with wings fly off into the horizon.
Also, I have Kenneth Dixon and Ty Montgomery. Any chance Gus’ ankle is fucked enough to make TyMont relevant @ Atlanta? I’m grasping at straws now. This Spencer Ware thing has me thinking about the Cowboys kneeling at the 1 on Thursday night (I have Zeke, he had Kamara).

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

Yikes! Gus is going to play. I’d trust AP over Ty or Dixon. But I wouldn’t be happy about any of it.

Who is the person in the banner photo?

Wiki says … Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht known professionally as Bertolt Brecht, was a German theatre practitioner, playwright, and poet.

Fronkenshteen

Looks like Geddy Lee with pomade.

yeah right

Good answer.

I wonder if old Bertolt ever drove a red barchetta.

I guarantee he didn’t live in the Subdivisions.

I think Ray Liotta still smokes cigarettes. I don’t believe him in these commercials.

He’s still worried that Vinnie will put too many onions in the sauce.

Karen flushed all the coke. That’s all the money they had.

I think the joke is they make you fart, which would suck if you were sharing a jail “cell” with 12 other mobsters who all ate the same food.

Brick Meathook

Those old-school dago mobsters wouldn’t even notice a fart.

Fronkenshteen

What’s the origin of the “dago” slur? I remember hearing onKen Burns’ “Baseball” that Yogi Berra was born in the Dago Hills section of St. Louis, I believe.

Brick Meathook

It’s Calibresian for “greaseball”

I looked it up the other day. It’s a pidgin of Diego used to insult southern Europeans. There was some quote I once read by a U.S. President complaining about dagos around the time of the Spanish-American War that I thought was hilarious. I need to find it again.

Unsurprised

Aha. Of course it was Teddy Roosevelt, in 1891.

Monday we dined at the Camerons; various dago diplomats were present, all much wrought up by the lynching of the Italians in New Orleans. Personally I think it rather a good thing, and said so.[77]

Excellent job by veteran Replay Official Count von Count for catching that.
