NFL News:

  • Seems like it’s going great so far: Giants #1 pick Daniel Jones was booed at Yankee Stadium yesterday. He laughed it off, saying the best way to make them be quiet will be to perform well on the field.
    • Taking it personally? Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who sounds like an aggrieved Trump supporter:
      • “Every once in a while, I wish the people taking the shots would take a minute to look at my résumé. I’ve been a part of teams that went to seven Super Bowls. I had a hand in some of them. But today, there’s no patience. And there’s no room for civil discourse in our society, which I find sad.”
  • Either keeping loose or trying to force Roger Goodell’s hand, Tom Brady is working out with Josh Gordon.
    • Gordon was indefinitely suspended back in December for violating the terms of his reinstatement.
      • The Pats did sign him to a one-year, $2.025 million contract this offseason, so they think he might be back at some point, despite the league having no updates on the situation.

Assorted musings:

I had a good day at Deadspin, commenting on their aghastness at NHL management by making reference to an oft-discussed topic here:


If you aren’t following Super 70s Sports on the Twitter, you’re missing out on gems like this:


While looking around for a cover picture for tonight’s thread, I came across video that verified something I had completely forgotten – Barry Fucking Manilow sang the national anthem at Super Bowl XVIII.

Back when both these teams weren’t jokes.

Not exactly a classic version, I still think he did a good job because he didn’t give us the Bleeding Gums Murphy version others have since provided.

I just drank an entire bottle of codeine-infused cough syrup so I guess my bender will extend into an eighth day. No telling what I’ll shit out tomorrow.

Oddly enough, even though I have no memory of the past seven days, I looked at my work schedule and I flew five flights for United Airlines (my employer) as pilot in command. They were all on an Airbus which flies itself but still that’s impressive. I was talking to one of my junior first officers who flies with me and we also do a lot of coke and make porno movies with some of the flight attendants and he said that on one of the flights they had to strap me in to the left hand seat and that I was completely limp and was bleeding out of my eyes yet when the tower gave us clearance to takeoff I answered on the radio smartly, then I went unconscious again. When we arrived in Des Moines they parked the plane and I just slept in the seat overnight. I have no memory of any of this.

THEN WHY ARE ALL THESE GUYS DOING CROSS SIGNS???

Horatio Cornblower

My son turned 21 on 6/8, (yes, there was talk of his first bar crawl taking place with the DFO crew but that seemed cruel, and more importantly Mrs. Cornblower couldn’t make that weekend work), and for father’s day he went out and bought me a bottle of Proper #12, Conor McGregor’s “whiskey” (it was a joke, you see, because he knows I hate McGregor), and I tried it tonight and my review is as follows:

I can’t say I hate it because it has no taste whatsoever. I’m not even kidding. There’s an alcohol burn and a mild aftertaste of rubbing alcohol but otherwise nothing. Nada. Zip. I’m honestly sort of impressed. But, no shit, the rest of this bottle is probably getting poured down the drain.

King Hippo

ha, that’s my twins’ bday

Sharkbait

I’ve had it. Mistakenly bought it actually. I’d mix it with something. Certainly not the worst whiskey I’ve ever had.

Horatio Cornblower

I plan on mixing it with whatever’s in the garbage disposal.

Don’t throw it out! Are you one of the lawyers here? Keep it in your office and offer clients a shot of it at ten in the morning. Or use it as cologne for court appearances and bench conferences. If you’re not a lawyer strike all that from the record.

So yesterday I finished up a seven day bender of booze and pills and codeine-laced cough syrup. I don’t even know what the pills are, I just buy them from drug dealers and swallow them all. I really can’t remember the last week.

So this morning I take the most hideously painful shit and then I hear a clank in the toilet bowl and I look down and this is what I found:

Update from Canadia (specifically Toronto, which the NBA says reps all of Canadia):

Trout hits a Grand Slam (sorry Andy Reid, not that kind) in the top of the 4th, which is twice as useful as his two-run dong in the top of the 2nd.

– What was her job, precisely?
– Does she have something on Chief Two Scoops, or does he have something on her?
– How much did she make?
– Do you think she ever blew Corey Lewendowski in the back of a campaign bus?
– How is she not a supermodel?
– Does she speak Russian?
– How old is she?
– What is it that she is good at, aside from what would seem obvious?
– Has she ever been Melania’s stunt double?
– Doesn’t it seem like Michael Cohen would know her pretty well?
– Do you think 45 has ever grabbed her pussy?

I’ve been bothering you guys with observations gleaned from reading “Please Kill Me”. Here’s another one.

The most honest chroniclers of the punk movement will say “We were in a tight spot, so I called my mom and she sent me money to ‘pay rent’, ‘buy food’, ‘buy gas’, etc.

The vast majority of punkers-you know, the ones that said, “fuck everything! I’m going out on my own!” had anecdotes that went along the lines of…

“So there I was, my manager walked out on me. I was in Cleveland and had less than 5 dollars in my pocket.” (fast forward) That gig three days later at CBGB’s really turned things around for us!”

“I was stuck in Los Angeles. No money. No girlfriend. No way to get home. Anyway, I ended up in this great seaside condo and I met this awesome bass player and the gigs just started coming and it just took off from there!”

“I busted my amp and they were going to kick me out of the band but I scrounged around and replaced the amp and got some microphones as well.”

“It was so shitty living in that hellhole of a small town! But I moved to New York and I treasured that apartment that I had in lower Manhattan.”

Mommy and daddy’s money enabled much of the “revolutionary” Punk Rock movement.

Punk and jazz are the same for me-I appreciate and respect where (I think) it’s coming from/what it represents but listening to much of it is a chore. Of course this is a blanket generalization and there are tunes that I like but I’ll be gravitating towards other genres most of the time.

SonOfSpam

This is artsy, especially lyrically:
