NFL News:

  • Well, they found a way: Kyle Rudolph’s staying in Minnesota.
    • A four-year, $36 million extension, which somehow raises the Vikings’ cap space from $1 million to $4 million.
      • He takes less salary but gets more guaranteed money.
        • Profit?
      • Only $16 million is guaranteed, including injuries, so they do have an out if required.

  • Staying in NOLA is Cameron Jordan, who signed a three-year extension, keeping him in their defensive backfield until the 2023 season.
    • He was due to run out his original five-year deal after the 202 season, but a desire for stability plus an extra $52.5 million make it an easy decision.
      • In toto, the next five years guarantee him $42 million.
  • Going to a different Hall is Kellen Winslow Jr., who was convicted of rape yesterday.
    • Using every tool in their shame arsenal, ESPN sees fit to mention how “Kellen Winslow Jr. — the son of a Hall of Famer who himself earned more than $40 million during his career — has been convicted of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman last year in his picturesque beach community of Encinitas, north of San Diego.”
    • He was also found guilty of commiting lewd conduct and indecent exposure, and the jury is still deliberating on other charges.

Everyone is all kerfuffled about Raptors fans cheering when Kevin Durant got injured. While I am glad that Toronto sports fans have been exposed as the hick bandwagoneers the rest of Canada knows them to be, I would like to point out that

this

shit

happens

all the time. And even when the player in question is a coked-up glory-boy who likely deserves some of those jeers,

it’s still a shitty thing to do. Besides –

that’s what Twitter and comment sections are for.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL: Game 7 – Wednesday
  • NBA: Game 6 – Thursday
  • MLB:
    • Mets at Yankees – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN2
    • Blue Jays at Orioles – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Dodgers at Angels – 10:00PM | Sportsnet1
  • WWE:
    • Smackdown – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360

It’s a wasteland out there tonight. Maybe curl up with a good book.

Ain’t nothin’ wrong with the classics.

I’ve waited all day to say this, expecting someone far funnier than me, but, since I have not seen it yet…

Anyone else watching the bachelorette? This is fucking great television. Just this chick every week picking the single worst guy (who is the biggest hottest hunk) while the ‘good’ guys struggle to comprehend why they can’t beat this dude.

It’s like watching Marco Rubio and JEB! trying to figure out why they can’t beat Trump while refusing to come right out and say they’ll kill Mexican babies in concentration camps.

WCS

I do not watch that show, and I never have. When I saw “John Paul Jones” trending on Twitter, my stomach dropped; did Led Zeppelin’s bassist die?

Thankfully, it was just some chub on a show I couldn’t care less about.

I played (badly) bass. JPJ is absolutely one of my personal inspirations, and easily a top-five of all time. Watch that video. A bass guitar shouldn’t do that. That’s Kim Thayil of Soundgarden playing lead guitar, not a bass player.

Point is, one of my personal heroes is still here, and some guy on some show lost. I hate social media.

blaxabbath

I didn’t like John Paul Jones himself but he’s a great character for this season bc that dude did not give a fuck. He looked like a dude who needed a place to crash for three weeks while he waits for his room in LA to free up so he can get started working with his high school buddy on their weed delivery business. But some guy was like, “You’re hot, want to be on teevee? Marry a Miss America contestant? Find true love?”

He’s like, “You pay weekly and offer housing? Sure, I’ll be a garbage man. “

And the executive is like, “no immediate pay but you will staying and eating/drinking at the mansion.”

He’s like, “Yeah ok.”

To be fair, the USWNT was only up 8-0 after 80 minutes, so they needed those extra 5 goals to really put the game away.

Yeah, when it gets hot here the pollution tends to be worse. I was outside a lot today, because I’m a stupid moron with an ugly face and a big butt and my but smells and I like to kiss my own butt, so it’s probably just that.

I had an unexpected social/behavioral scientific discovery over the weekend. I give you the Conversation Duration Limit. It is the amount of time you can spend having a conversation with someone while still having a meaningful conversation. If you exceed that limit, you instantly regret having that conversation, no matter what was spoken.

For example: Last week, I was telling my mother about my vacation plans, and we had a discussion about past vacations, how will the family survive with me gone a week, the need for me to find someone special. Up until 13 minutes 59 seconds, it was a lovely mother-son conversation. Then at the 14 minute mark she says “Don’t forget to bring condoms.” With one line, she complete destroyed the lovely conversation we were having by insinuating “You need to get laid.” However true that is, I don’t need my own mother telling me that. Moreover, if I do meet someone and things progress nicely, when I pull out the condoms, the last thing I want to be thinking is “Thanks Mom!”

That’s the healthy way: disengaging from a conversation. But staying for getting cues and push buttons is fun.
