Your [stretches arms out] “Ahhh! First Day of the Year” New Year’s Day Night Open Post

Most under-rated day-drinking day of the season must be today. If you’re not an amateur that’s waking up in a strange place with your ‘good clothes’ still on then this is the day. Did you have a Bloody Caesar/Mary with your bacon and eggs? Did you follow it up (as I did) with an early afternoon martini followed by a sipping beer followed by scotches? If you did any variation of the above you are the champion I always knew you were. Ya dug down deep and found the inner strength to do whatever the hell you felt like. That pain in your chest? That’s just pride in one’s accomplishments manifesting itself after laying dormant for so very long.

Is there more NFL fallout? You bet.

Tom Coughlin waggled his finger at Fournette and Yeldon, called them ‘unproffessional’ and showed them who is boss by relieving rb coach Tyrone Wheatley of his job. That’ll show those whippersnappers!

Espn has a blurb about John Elway evaluating everybody including himself. Will he switch from a Western saddle to an English one? (Ha! Betcha Brandon Perna still sticks with the oats/hay jokes…)

Brian Orakpo, the olb from the Titans has called it a day after ten years and a few seasons of being a top-notch defender. I have no joke for this guy.

SBNation and Bleacher Report both have the Giants grabbing qb Haskins from Ohio State. He’s the one year starter that improved greatly over the last month of the season. I’ll bet his middle name is ‘Akili’. I’m torn-this looks like a disaster to me but I don’t want to go through another year of watching Eli. But I don’t want them to jump the gun on the first pretty lady with ‘legs up to here’ that walks past the construction site either. The Jags are moving on from Bortles for sure-perhaps they give the Giants something to move up one spot and then NY grabs an offensive lineman? Four months of speculation to follow…

Do your thing, there’s plenty going on. Share if it’s going on in your life or make jokes if you be watching some sporto thingies. It’s your site, damn it!

Of all the collateral damage sure to result from the explosion of the trump family, certainly the most enjoyable to witness will be the reveal, via Michael Cohen’s testimony, of the nature of the “relationship” between Falwell Jr. and his erstwhile “pool boy” from the Fontainebleau in Miami. If Trump only paid @ $150K to make his sexual peccadilloes go away, imagine what Jerry & Giancarlo got up to to run up a tab of 1.8 million skinoots.

Senor Weaselo

Oh, I didn’t realize there was a night thread. It’s a Good Life is on. Watch it or you’ll be wished into the corn field!

Almost left LAX without luggage since we rarely check bags. Couldn’t leave Colorado without some beer though….

Purdue Cancer Kid died. .I hope for his sake that he was in a death-spiral coma on Friday and not aware of the result of the Music City Bowl versus Auburn. Maybe he shoulda Kevorkian’d after the win over OSU. Or maybe that Auburn game is what caused him to shuffle off this mortal coil.

WCS

The cancer ultimately got him, which is a shame. But, that Purdue performance couldn’t have inspired a whole lot of hope. Give the poor kid something.

WCS

You can’t rely on Texas to anything right, in perpetuity. How are you part of five different countries (including your own), and still manage to continuously screw up? They have to be trying to fail at this point.

If any of you literate types are looking for a book to read I started ‘The North Water’ by Ian McGuire this afternoon.

And just finished it, 255 pages and a few hours later. It is a fantastic story.

I am not ready to go back to work. I feel like shit. I am so far behind on emails and shit.

There’s medicine for that very last part.

What the…? What’s with Georgia? Did they figure “We didn’t make the Playoffs so why try?”?

WCS

Keep this up, and soon-to-be-former Fightin’ Popes of Columbus may finish third in the final poll.

Horatio Cornblower

That appears to be the case.

I’ll start: It’s bad.

He had my haircut before my hairline receded and I lost my bangs forever. That’s not a good thing.

(watching Doctor Who)

The Dalaks just shut down all of Britain’s Internet on New Year’s Day forcing everyone to have conversations with each other.

I knew they were evil, but they’ve gone too far!!!

Gratliff

I think I’ve got two more eps on DVR to burn through first. I was gonna watch them, but I got distracted by 2.5 seasons of Deadwood.

Redshirt

Oops. Sorry.

Horatio Cornblower

Watch out for Powers Boothe’s character! He’s not to be trusted!

Back to work tomorrow

WCS

Still got another week off. Thank you, hygheir edumacshon!

With the Holidays and working Saturdays because of the Holidays, I’m alternating between days off and working days. I don’t even know what day it is.

Also, I think this take is more appropriate.

I feel bad now that I know that wasn’t ad libbed.

Maybe everyone was right all along and Bama is the only good team in the country.

WCS

There’s a handful of good teams, Son of Clem is very good, but, the Sabans would be in the playoff hunt in one of those new pro leagues about to start.

Newborns can be tough. Today fucking broke me. Another sleepless night ahead. If anyone’s drinking Jameson, could you take a shot for me?

Gratliff

It only takes a few months before they start moving enough to roll off a surface the second you turn your back. A few concussions does wonder for the sleep schedule.

Sharkbait

We just pulled the goalie. Is this what I have to look forward to?

SonOfSpam

I remember that day (I say “day” because I think that’s how long it took. Stupid fertile people.)

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I wasn’t planning to, but you seem like you need the help, so I’ll step up.

SonOfSpam

Nice to know some people care.

Sorry, only drinking beer. But I’ll increase the speed.

That makes me feel guilty about my afternoon nap. I’ll drink double to make up for it.

Horatio Cornblower

Have you tried shaking him?

I kid. Listen, I did this twice, and I’m a moron. The trick is to sleep when they sleep. Afternoon naps are mandatory. I can’t stress that enough. If the Mrs. is breast feeding have her fill up a couple of bottles so she can get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. Formula’s easier, but same deal on shifts. When she’s had that, it’s your turn. Learn to love late night/early AM ESPN. With our first I developed a disturbingly in-depth knowledge of World’s Strongest Man.

And remember, this too shall pass, probably within 2-3 months.

FFS, of course the Eagles-Bears is the last game of the weekend. Spot on, whomever called Houston getting the opening game in which they are 100% losing.

Col. Duke LaCross

That first game always has Houston or the Bengals, or the Bengals versus Houston.

WCS

Redshirt, there are rumblings that WVU might take a shot at making Luke Fickell Holgy’s replacement at WVU. Heard anything on your end?

Redshirt

Haven’t heard, but the local sports news has been distracted at little bit.

I’d doubt it though. Butch Jones tried that route with Tennessee and we saw how that happened.

Not only has Fickell has been saying the right things, he has built in a recruiting class in the Cincinnati region. He’s on a first name basis with the best HS teams’ coaches and that puts him in the Living Rooms of quality players.

Plus also in the AAC, if his team is clicking, all he has to do is beat UCF and he’s playing in January. If he goes WVa, suddenly he’s in the Big 12 and look up at Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech and TCU.

WCS

Butch Jones is another name being kicked around. That said, he was on DickRod’s staff from 2005-07, so, there’s some familiarity. Plus, the idea of getting another shot of coaching a Power Five school would have be a key selling point.

Redshirt

Butch Jones’ biggest success was two years with Brian Kelly’s players.

WCS

Twice! (Central Michigan and Cincy)

“We had an issue this summer.” …okay.

Technically true, since Smith was fired in April I think, and Urban was back right around Sept 21.

Congrats, Redshirt.

Oh my look at that, a college football game that went over time, what a surprise. Sugar Bowl probably won’t be finished until 2020 at this rate.

One of the conditions that go with the surgery I had is no alcohol for 6-9 months. Strangely enough, I haven’t missed it at all. I did 7 months in Kuwait without booze about 10 years ago without DTs, so I guess I’ll weather this storm somehow.

I have cut down my booze intake greatly and just vape more weed. Less hangovers, less depression. I still love red wine just drink way less of it.

Col. Duke LaCross

I went a year after mine. And then with a quarter of a stomach and 18” of lost upper intestine, having a couple hits me like a Mack Truck.

How did I not know Warren Moon went to U-DUB?

I izz smrt.

Sorry, guys. Unless Washington the State quickly gets its shit together, I don’t think Urban’ll be ending his career with a loss.

WCS

Until he takes the job at Notre Dame in 2022.

I started the day with mimosas and eggs Benedict, then shifted to a bar for beer and gin & tonics. I’d say I had a productive day drinking shift.
