Hi everyone,

It’s your ol’ pal Beerguyrob, here to entertain you on another Saturday night.

Well, it’s the night before “The Big Game”.™®© As is custom, I thought I’d let the music do the talking, with the input of several fellow Commentists from the various Open Threads during the week.

To start things off, we’ve got GWAR with my feelings on everybody asking Tom Brady about how much of a legacy game Sunday will be.

Meanwhile, King Hippo takes us back to the St. Louis Rams’ victory over Steve McNair & the Titans with “Wasted Days” by the Cloud Nothings.

Low Commander invokes the anthem of Bad Religion to remind us all that Roger Goodell is a National Disgrace, whereas Dean Spanos is just a statewide disgrace.

Never forget that all of their words are a warm and septic breeze.

Rikki reminds us that no matter how hard we try or want a different outcome, it’s still us against them – and they’re winning.

Yeah Right reminds us that there is indeed no escape, so much like the Architect wishes to destroy Zion, so too must we cleanse this world with flame, end this, cleanse this, then rebuild and start again – hopefully without The One Bill Belichick.

Finally, Redshirt – God bless him – comes through with the words of wisdom that must have helped through every one of Marv Lewis’ 14 seasons in Cincinnati.

Of course, we can’t forget Gronk’s playing.

I’ll be going to a watch party tomorrow, but I swear I won’t be up to any good and will not watch the game itself.

Lady or ladies and gentlemen–the portion of the evening where I’m putting forth the effort to make Sazeracs has passed.

Purple tits smell better.

Fronkenshteen

Just got home from my first Saturday shift in a while. Got my ass kicked but good. No re-cooks though, and filling in was a huge favor to my boss.
My in-laws are sprawled all over the house and my wife is sleeping beside the baby in my room. I’m in my bathroom with a beer and my vape pen listening to the new Superego episodes and deciding who to draft in fan duel.
Basically, life is good.
Hope you guys are fizzing and popping tonight.

Sharkbait

Bourbon neat on the couch here. Cheers

Fronkenshteen

Fan Duel is all head-to-head for the supe. First pick: Gurley or Michel? Also, Sleepers?

Sharkbait

I get the sense a lot of James White will be used to counter the Darnold/ Suh pressure

Fronkenshteen

If they can’t get to Brady, fuuu…..

Fronkenshteen

If I get the 2 & 3 picks, should I grab Michel & White? Or Edelman before either?

Sharkbait

Not a bad move to get the backfield. I like Sony in this game a lot too based on usage so far in the playoffs

Fronkenshteen

Ok. Be right back.

Fronkenshteen

Cool. I got Michel and White. He got Gurley and CJ. He took Brady in the 3rd round, so I grabbed Woods and Cooks at the turn. He took Hogan and Edelman and I finished with Goff.

Sharkbait

Not bad. Good luck!

Lil’ WCS is headbanging. I’m doing a good jorb as dad.

Pantera – Walk was the boy’s first metal song that actually stuck. It teaches good life lessons as well.

Mine was Billy Joel.

My parents dropped me on my head as a baby.

Billy Joel was your first metal song? Lemme guess…Just the Way You Are?

Billy Joel kicks ass, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. I’ve seen him live thrice, but, the best performance I’ve ever seen from anyone live was him Billy and Elton John, playing together in 1999 or 2000. Piano men!

Sharkbait

Ok that sounds awesome

WCS

It was. I smoked enough weed to put a mule in a coma that night, and I still remember it. So, so good.

I don’t like a lot of his stuff, but he is talented as hell and I still like his earlier records (they were records then, people). That sounds like a great show.

Gratliff

He’s one of like 20 musicians that are about to die that are gonna fuck me up something fierce.

I’m sure it’s fine. I’m sure after the last bit of property is ripped from the hands of working class people trying to not die, the entire industry’ll just suddenly grow a heart and stop stepping on everyone’s throats.

I just want Health Care Costs affordable. I don’t care which side does it.

Gratliff

The answer most likely is neither. The powers that be love to harp on “access”, but affordable is a pipe dream in our current configuration. Warren is probably the most likely plausible candidate to actively pursue it if she gets the nod. Harris has already retreated from universal healthcare as a platform. Booker pushes stronger for privatization than half the Republicans and wouldn’t dare do something that might hinder his cash flow. ACA was largely a half-measure, with the exception of the preexisting conditions regulation that needs to be protected at all costs because holy fuck we’re all fucked if that gets wiped out. Even then it failed to accomplish its stated goal. The hospital and pharmaceutical industries are gonna get theirs, and the insurance industry is gonna make sure it gets theirs at a much higher margin than the medical types. The health insurance industry is so broken in this country that I can’t imagine a reality where healthcare ever becomes affordable while they exist. It’d have to be wiped out and built from scratch to even really consider a hybrid universal system that doesn’t spiral out of control.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Well only one side is trying, so…
