Like most of you, I’m wrapping up the three-day weekend in advance of resuming life as a teacher on Tuesday.

And I am not taking it well.

But a new school year will bring new students, returning headaches, fresh challenges, and it’s eventual completion brings me one satisfying year closer to full retirement.

So I trundle on, hoping I can get through to some, and help the others get on the way to their future.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NCAA:
    • Notre Dame at Louisville – 8:00PM | ESPN / TSN
  • U.S. Open Tennis:
    • Round of 16 – 7:00PM | ESPN2 / TSN2
  • MLB:
    • White Sox at Cleveland – 7:00PM | Sportsnet / MLBN
  •  WWE:
    • Monday Night Raw – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360
      • The road to the Wednesday Night Wars begins tonight!

This is also my last Monday for a while, as football takes over my slot. I’ll be back in February to spin those classic rock tunes you love so much. Until then,

I think if you go to ESPN’s app, it’s still loaded in from last year. You just have to hit “rejoin.”

I’m done tipping at the register before my order arrives. I have never ONCE had an above-average experience when tipping at the time of order; however, I’ve been left to hang out like any other chump who didn’t just throw his money away like an idiot many a time.

Completely ignored the post until this very moment. As IT in education, my least favorite part is when the teachers come back. I love when teachers make requests like “Make all the student passwords the same because it’s easier that way and doesn’t confuse the kids” when every student over the age of 9 has 2FA enabled on their google accounts and uses KeePass and shit while I have to reset the teacher’s email password 5 times the first day, but y’know, make it easy for the kids.

Betting against Miami seems the safest strategy so far.

Point of Order: Was that a typo and he looks like his dog was hit by the car or is that correct as written and he looks like the dog hit by the car?

and either way, did ya fap to it?

Good grief. Is Louisville allergic to success?

Week 1 JV is just insanely difficult. Why I only bet two ML upsets (Nevada, Wyoming) because the odds were great (huzzah, both hit) and the o/u on Ducks/War Damn Eagle (because I was bored, it failed like usual).

No #ACTION on Week 1 NFL so far.

I couldn’t think of anything good so I named my FF team the Virtue Signalers and used an image of Mike Pence as my avatar.

Pretty good. Could have just went with “calls his wife mother”

I have Cam and Robby Anderson so I just butchered a Crash Team Racing joke.

Oo. Starz has the new Broly movie. Gonna watch that instead.

Brocky

Stupid question, i haven’t watched any of super, or the other the two new movies, people tell me i need to see this, does seeing either of the previous ones matter?

Gratliff

None of the Broly movies are canon, so they did a complete reboot to bring him into the storyline proper. So far, it’s pretty killer. You’ll be lost if you don’t watch Super, though. Super was fantastic, and includes all the stories from Battle of the Gods and Resurrection F, so you don’t have to watch the previous movies. Goku vs. Jiren during the last arc of super is among the best in all the series.

yeah right

A grilled Nathan’s, toasted bun and spicy brown mustard with a cold ass beer?

That’ll do.

Nothing says NCAA like having two teams risk their well-being playing for free for the rest of our entertainment on Labor Day. That said, fuck Notre Dame with a crowbar.

Gratliff

Which documentary should I watch tonight? JFK or Hilary’s America?

King Hippo

JFK is a vastly overrated, inconsequential President. And why the fuck would ANYONE want to watch ANYTHING HillyBob related at this point in time?

herodotus450
herodotus450

/Googles “book depositories near Hippo”

King Hippo

however, “Thirteen Days” is most excellent.

Gratliff

The point was that JFK is a batshit insane conspiracy movie (albeit very watchable) and Hilary’s America is a hit piece created by a dipshit conservative grifter and felon.

King Hippo

oh, I miss joke! Don’t mind me, I been up since 4a.

It is amusing how the right-wing conspiracy hive mind spun these stupefyingly complex Machievellan narratives around basically the most boring politician of the 21st century.

Gratliff

I wouldn’t say the JFK theories like what’s portrayed in the movie were conservative. I knew plenty of liberals (albeit older ones who probably were closer to Reagan than any current Dems) who swore by the belief that LBJ had JFK killed.

King Hippo

I meant HillyBob’s!

and yeah, those JFK conspiracies are pretty interesting

King Hippo

/also LBJ hisself apparently believed until his own death “I think the Cubans got him” – despite public allegiance to the Warren Report

Brocky

13 days was a good film. Underrated

I ask FOAR the ppls’ grading of Bleached Assholes:

QB: C. Newton ($8), Bollo del Verdad ($3), Flacco ($1)

Hippo: Newton at that price point seemed worth the gamble, but FUUUUCKKKK both Janeane Garofolo ($2) and DAK! ($1) would have been even cheaper if I had not taken the bait.

RB: D. Johnson ($60), J. Mixon ($50 – Keeper), T. Cohen ($7), Darwin Thompson ($4), A. Mattison ($3), James Jackson ($2), K. Ballage ($2)

Hippo: I like all my depth/upside/keeper potential plays, but I should have planned better for a more reliable #4.

WR: D. Hopkins ($59 – keeper), B. Cooks ($16), K. Holladay ($10), Corey Davis ($4), J. “Bleeding Kansas” Brown ($1)

Hippo: Cooks is a steal at that price, even if I am meh on RRRRRRRRRRRAM IT!! this season. I should probably feel better about Holladay than I do, I wanted the security blanket of JEWKAH! but he went for a crazy amount (like $28).

TE: O. Howard ($14), D. Goeddert ($2)

Hippo: /invests heavily in Zach Ertz voodoo doll futures.

K: J. Slye ($1)

Hippo: High distance bonuses this league, otherwise who fucking cares.

Def: 500s ($2), Non-Gendered Cowpersons ($1)

Hippo: Great, my lead unit is imaginary. Also PHRASING.

I am irrationally proud that my suggestion to shift to 0.8 PPR was accepted by the commish. Having played both full and half PPR, I think full is better, but not overwhelmingly so. Thus, 0.8.
