  • The Raiders are apparently working out Richie Incognito.
  • When asked for a response, because the world is nothing but pain, Derek Carr reportedly locked his front door & began blaring Velvet Underground from his speakers.

For a 1950s B-movie that giant spider explosion is pretty good. That was all done optically.

If you ever wondered what it would look like right before Jerry Lewis got his head blown right the fuck off while talking on a fruity old telephone, it would probably look very similar to this:

I made enchiladas tonight. My mistake was using the chili powder from the Indian grocery store when I made the sauce. It’s not like other chili powders. Senor Weaselo would probably scoff at my assessment, but it’s really damned spicy.

Unsurprised

Enchiladas rule.

These were disappointing because they were too spicy to enjoy. Maybe if I’d had some sour cream they would have been better.

Everyone uses that Joe Satriani song for goals/homers. You know what I would do as the audio guy?

You’re a teacher? (It’s the Teachers Tournament.)

No, it was actually the Super Mensa Tournament. We all love to watch the Menses!

As opposed to the Super Mensch Tournament. The Ubermensch Tournament, if you will.

I was at one time, actually. Moreover, I was disappointed they’re doing this and have temporarily kicked that other dude to the curb for two weeks.

I coulda kicked his ass tonight.

Seriously though. Usually my brain works too slow these days. But I was nailing it tonight. I even knew the “Poets” final Jeopardy. I was smart tonight.

Tomorrow, probably not.

Of course, if I was on there they’d have DQ’d me.

They actually give you the first word on Final. So you know if it starts “Who” or “What” or whatever. WHICH TOTALLY HELPS.

It’s mostly about the buzzer and Final Jeopardy. They don’t even let you on there unless you know most of the answers.

Yes, sometimes it’s helpful to print your coffee. You must have a newer model.

Shazam was fun.

Superman showing up at the very end to have lunch with Shazam/Billy and Freddy was a fun and genuine surprise.

Also, I think it was the Nicolas Cage Superman costume from the doomed Superman Lives movie.

Lots of nice women, too. Michelle Borth, Marta Milans, Caroline Palmer, Meagan Good.

As an aside, it’s kind of funny that D.J. Catrona was in this since he was originally going to be Superman in the George Miller-directed Justice League that was killed just before filming began a decade ago.

DJ Cotrona is a handsome dude who I can only see as an anti-hero like Gordon Gecko, not Superman.

Well hopefully the Blue Jackets are happy with their first ever playoff series win, 4 of their best players probably leaving for nothing in free agency, and all the scouting expenses they’ll save by only having two draft picks this year.

Blue Jackets shouldn’t have believed that note that got slipped under their locker room door that said the post counts as a goal that was written on Bruins letterhead.

I’d make a list of all things I’d root for over Boston, but I’d get pinged by federal agencies.

In response to my early post, Sterling didn’t have one because apparently it was too much to believe Thairo Estrada was going to hit a home run.

I watched Endgame last night. It was painfully convoluted and you probably could have had the same movie with an 1h45 runtime, as opposed to their 3h and 05 minutes run time.

The ending was really stupid and becomes even more stupid when you think about it. There were some cool moments though.

Endgame is easily In my bottom 5 MCU films.

It’s even worse when you realize they literally just invented a way to change anyone’s age using the poorly explained time travel mechanic, basically undoing the reason for Old Balls to leave in the first place.

How to work with spoiler tags?

Use line breaks to make sure the spoiler tags are their own lines separate from everything else. The spoiler goes between them, not in the quotation marks in the opening spoiler tag.

Eh. I thought it was fun.

That’s the correct answer. End Game was a satisfying ending to a 12 year buildup, that has seen multiple directors, writers, producers, using characters that comic book dudes were just itching at the chance to get very upset.
End Game could have suuuuuuuucked. And yet it was good.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Man, how sad have the cast of Panthers quarterbacks been that they’re going and putting Biscuit Justice Delhomme in their team Hall of Fame? Dude’s got 125/101 TD/INT, career. That’s like if the Jets didn’t have Nameth, so they just threw Sanchez in theirs because he was on the team when they made the playoffs a couple years in a row.

Thairo Estrada just hit his first career home run. We’re trying to find John Sterling’s (no doubt atrocious) home run call. Right now the worst idea we’ve come up with in the Weaselo household is “Thairo hits a bullet over the wall!”

/The joke is he got shot and had a bullet lodged in his hip.
//The other joke is he STILL spent less time on the DL/IL than Jacoby Ellsbury

Opposing teams’ defensive coordinators always said to their teams before facing the Panthers, “they love to use him as a decoy in the red zone, so don’t go chasing Wesley Walls.”
