NFL News:

  • The Ravens cut Eric Weddle.
    • The move saves them $7.5 million against the cap.
    • He joins a full roster of safeties looking for work, including Earl Thomas, Landon Collins, and the Honey Badger.
  • Rumours abound that the Antonio Brown trade will happen before Friday, although nothing official can be announced before next Wednesday.
    • Directly quoting ESPN, “Brown has three years remaining on his deal, with scheduled base salaries of $12.625 million in 2019, $11.3 million in 2020 and $12.5 million in 2021.”
    • Other rumours are that the Steelers have dropped their demand for more than just a first-round pick.

I fell down a blues rabbit hole earlier today, and found a Wednesday-themed song.

Sometimes, older is better.

NC State just earned a bid to the NIT.
No, that’s not a good thing.

NC State is not….well they’re not….
They’re not good.

tWBS is really happy he didn’t bet this game.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Markell Johnson should transfer to Kentucky or something.

weird game is weird

Down by four at home to GT.
This is kinda fucked up.

Yup, Keatts needs to learn how to coach defense.
This is turrible.

TV Teddy just killed us.
Glad I didn’t bet this one.

Hippo, my betting site has a live feed of beach volleyball on it. I am not going to lie and say I didn’t look at the odds.

King Hippo

Never hurts to look!

/Chapocoense AF (as FUCK!) made me a fuckload tonight

Lost a single on River Damn you Argies and hit a good 2 teamer in the Copa. I dropped a bit on 2nd division Costa Rican game tonight, need me some Santa Ana.

King Hippo

I bet Alianza Lima at +880 right before they scored, then counter-bet at the end so I would make like $230 no matter what. Otherwise I would have went on tilt, was like 6th minute of injury time they went level.

Good day except for Young Boys…

(actual-ish conversations at work)

Coworker: “Redshirt! Redshirt!”
Me: “Yeah?”
Coworker: “How soon will you be able to OK the thing?”
Me: “What thing?”
Coworker: “The thing we got.”
Me: “Did anyone tell me we got the thing?”
Coworker: “No.”
Me: “Then how can I know its time for me to OK the thing if I don’t know we got the thing?”
Coworker: “I don’t know. All I know is we need you OK the thing.”
Me: “Of course. I have no problem doing my job. I just need to told when its time for me to do my job.”
Coworker: “No problem!”
(takes one look at the thing)
Me: “I can’t OK it.”
Coworker: “Why not?!”
Me: “The information doesn’t match.”
Coworker: “Its been here for two hours. Our bosses are going to want to know why it wasn’t discovered sooner.”
Me: “No problem. I’ll explain it.”
Coworker: “Thanks, pal”
—–
Boss: “Why wasn’t this noticed sooner?”
Me: “I learned about it two hours after it arrived. As soon as I saw the thing, I saw the problem with the information”
Boss: “Why didn’t any one else notice?”
Me: “Not sure. I think some people may have been out in Pre-School when they introduced the concept of ‘Numbers’.”

Just chiming in with my sports thought of the week.

LeBron James is doing a solid if transparent job of pretending how dedicated he is to playing out the string and trying to win every night like the GOAT he “is”…as the Lakers go into soft tank mode by sitting every teammate of his who so much as stubs a toe. The Lakers are the one team in my entire lifetime that I have never wavered on for 1 second in 40+ years; not the Raiders, not the Dodgers.

I’m starting to waver.

SonOfSpam

What’s weird about them is that all of things, I think Lonzo’s injury really hurt them. No, really. Stop laughing.

Still, Lakers4Lyfe.

Brick Meathook

Maybe LeBron can wear his bronze medal from the 2004 Athens Olympics.

ballsofsteelandfury

Gotta waver. They have no clue what they’re doing. That franchise was lost when Buss let the kids run things.

When I’m elected Dictator of the World 4 Lyfe I will spare no expense, leave no incomes untaxed, in order to send the entire populace to film school and provide everyone with exceptional cameras in order to ensure the amateur porn of the future is better lit and well framed.

litre_cola

I think that is a platform that can bring both sides together.

SonOfSpam

Can’t spell “herodotus450” without “hero”

How’d you like to be my new campaign manager? You are the spitting image of Carcetti’s campaign manager lady from The Wire, right?comment image

SonOfSpam

I am not, but maybe I could provide other spitting images.

Game Time Decision

Way to embarrased as to how long it took me to get the banner image joke.

herodotus450
herodotus450

It’s because brie is also a type of cheese, which is usually salty, like seamen, right?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Oh wait, banner image or banner quote?
Shit now I’m confused.

Vodka will help.

herodotus450
herodotus450

Hmmmm… are there two banners? One for the site and one for the post?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Well, there’s the quote which gets featured from time to time, and also the image for each post. I thought that (the image for tonight’s post) is what he was referring to. Granted I could be wrong.

It’s been known to happen.

King Hippo

such a stereo type ,, many r quite polite and mild manored ppl forget that

SonOfSpam

stereo types are a big deal esp if you have like dolby

theeWeeBabySeamus

You gotta admit…..For a little white girl, she’s got rhythm.

FINALLY! Now I can change it, at long last.

“Brother! Can you help me get past the water level?!”

Gratliff

How hard is it to sacrifice Raf to get the first couple bombs and then beat it with the next turtle?

Redshirt

Agreed. There’s a lot of videos where they say “I hate this level” but I had no problems with it. Its not like the Battletoads speed bike level.

scotchnaut

Landon Collins will always be a smashee, smashee run-stopping dude that has difficulty covering. This frees up 11 mill for a cash-strapped squadoo that has identified the secondary (as well as linebacker, edge rusher and offensive line) as weaknesses. Gettleman’s going all-in with respect to this draft, I guess.

scotchnaut

By the by, QB is a weakness but it hasn’t been publicly acknowledged as such because a guy pinned a prayer against his helmet 12 years ago.

Wakezilla

How about Man United making history tonight!?! Everyone get naked!

scotchnaut

Given the criteria of getting naked at night, I make history 365 days a year! Where’s my diamond, Jared?
