It’s WineWife’s birthday today, so forgive me if I don’t hang out with you fine folks this evening.

Also, it’s “Star Wars Day”, because ‘May the Fourth be with you’, which requires a slight lisping of the voice to make work that would have gotten you called quite the names back in my high school days. And probably beat up a little bit, because the 80s. Having been called them, I know of which I speak.

But, in honour of the event,


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Blue Jackets at Bruins – 7:00PM | NBC / CBC
    • Avalanche at Sharks – 10:00PM | NBCSN / Sportsnet
  • NBA:
    • Warriors at Rockets – 8:30PM | ABC
  • MLB:
    • Athletics at Pirates – 10:00PM | FS1
  • NCAA:
    • Women’s College Beach Volleyball: NCAA Tournament – 6:00PM | ESPN2
      • From Gulf Shores, AL
  • Fútbol:
    • Liga MX: Tigres UANL vs. Guadalajara – 7:55PM | UNI
    • Tijuana vs. Puebla – 9:55PM | FS1
  • Boxing:
    • Top Rank Boxing on ESPN – 10:00PM | ESPN
      • Main Event: Beterbiev-Kalajdzic (light heavyweights)

Other stuff:

  • SNL – Adam Sandler / Shawn Mendes – 11:30PM | NBC / Global
  • Sundance – “Platoon” – 9:00PM
  • Showtime
    • “Full Metal Jacket” – 6:30PM
    • Best in Sex: 2019 AVN Awards

I think I know what will occupy the sports intermissions.

And just so we’re clear, this is the best Triumph bit:

Don’t @ me.

I know in WWZ “The Whacko” is supposed to be Howard Dean, but Rob Reiner voices him in the audiobook and it sounds more like he’s voice acting Bernie Sanders.

My favorite scene, and both Hermana Weaselo and best cellist immediately knew why.

In Chicago for the weekend (because redeye flights with some bitch loudly talking for two hours about Xanax while the entire rest of the plane is trying to sleep is a totally awesome idea while jetlagged from Australia) and the bar I’m at is totally rocking stuff from the 90s I haven’t heard since the 90s

So a while back there was a weird blue light in Queens, making everyone go “ALIENS.” It was a Con Ed thing. Well today there’s a weird green light over Belmont Park!

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

There’s also a weird red light over wherever Bob Kraft goes in his limo.

I restrict myself from eating greasy foods more often than not these days. I’m old, my ticker won’t last forever.

But tonight, I was in the mood for some grease. So I drove down about 15 minutes ago and went thru the drive thru. 2 quarter pounders and big assed set of fries.

THEY PUT MAYONNAISE AND TOMATOES ON MY BURGERS WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY DO THAT??????????

Mom: Well, you can take the tomato off.
tWBS: You can’t take the fucking mayonnaise off!!!!!!!!

In France that would be two Royales With Cheese and you could take the mayo to Amsterdam and put it on your fries. Plus you could also get a beer, and I don’t mean just like in no paper cup, I’m talking about a glass of beer.

You gotta sign on your lawn that reads “Dead Ninja Storage”?
Please say yes.

Senor Weaselo

So one of my plans with Reapers is to slice one and put it in place of jalapeños on my Five Guys order (ketchup, hot sauce, pickles, jalapeños). We’ll see if I die. If I don’t it’ll be on House of Pain!

Doktor Zymm

You would die from starvation in Scandinavia, they put mayo on everything and it’s GOOD

When I called the McD’s to let them know what happened (ticket number on the order didn’t match the ticket number on receipt….it was dark I didn’t notice)…. Chick hung up on me when I called.

I’ll be getting her fired tomorrow if at all possible.

theeWeeBabySeamus

You don’t like me reporting a problem with an order, tell me so.

But don’t fucking hang up on me.

Well I’m sure she’ll enjoy her new job at Taco Bell.

They’re a little cold now though.

I need booze. I haven’t had much in months.

My philosophy in that regard has been “don’t read, do.” I try to stay informed about the most important things, but when I find myself wanting to dive into minutiae I try to think about ways that I can help rather than just spectating.

I managed to lose three years of important backups, so I’ve got that going for me on top of everything else. I guess I just have to dance with the tiger at hand.

The one timer hits him in the blades, nice block. But then he limps off the ice as if it hit him the midsection.

THIS IS WHY PEOPLE HATE BOSTON!!!!!!!!!!

“There will be a 20 minute intermission.” And then a raffle. And then another 5 minutes. So 30 minutes later, all we wanna do is play “Beauty and the Beast,” that’s all the people are here for since we did “Be Our Guest.” Some time today!

This has been Senor’s Pit Report.
