A Canadian man-child of indeterminate age, he stays young by selling alcohol at sporting events and yelling at the patrons he serves. Their rage nourishes his soul, and their tips pay for his numerous trips to various sporting events.

NFL Nuggets:

  • One door closes; another door opens.

  • In other QB news:
    • THE BEN is done for the year, and in response the Steelers are bringing in (*checks notes*) Paxton Lynch as a backup to now-starting QB Wilma Mason Rudolph.
    • Drew Brees is out 4-6 weeks with his torn thumb ligament.
    • Cam newton is questionable after re-injuring his foot against the Bucs.
  • The Steelers acquired Minkah Fitzpatrick from the LOLphins in exchange for the Steelers first-round pick in 2020.
    • Late-round picks were also exchanged, but no one cares about those.
    • What matters is how deep the tank goes in Miami. At present, they now have three first-round picks and two second-rounders in 2020, and two first-rounders and two second-rounders in 2021.

He would.

New ESPN Peyton Manning Segment Breaks Down Current Crop Of Quarterback Commercials

He totally would.

“You can tell Eli is basically done in New York, he looks terrible in this Visa commercial, just no feel or awareness of his surroundings. If we replay the tape here, you can see Saqoun [Barkley] rolling his eyes as he realizes that he’s wasting his prime starring in ads with Eli.”

I was sadly busy at work tonight, so just caught up on quotables. Some real contenders in there.

JFC. Why do I read any social media site? Why am I so fucking stupid?

Speaking of stupid, I walked home in the spitting rain and decided to detour for a snack when I was nearly home. Instead of dropping my stuff off and going to the store with a jacket on this time, I just went to the store, didn’t end up getting anything, and then walked home 0.4 miles in the pouring rain that appeared while I was inside.

So tomorrow is National Cheeseburger Day. If you want to get Andy Reid’s autograph, now’s your chance – he’ll be visiting every single one of these restaurants:

So my bosses birthday is coming up, like this week.
He has a 1yr old son.
So I got him a copy of Someone Could Get Hurt by Drew Magary

This is a good idea for a present, right?

I guess it’s better than the boa constrictor I’d have suggested.

Found a funny:
BOSS: We need to improve morale
ME: Okay
BOSS: How about an office party?
ME: [crosses out “replace coworkers with puppies”] I guess

Tired. And fucking AFL tribunal banned Toby Greene for the prelim.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Will he be back in time for regionals?

Damn. That sucks.

The Aussies on the internet think it’s bullshit, even the ones that hate Toby.

Apparently he’s a full-blown asshole that his NFL Films bio just barely managed to conceal.

I had to shoot her from 1000 yards away. She was armed and dangerous.

1,000 yards? That is some powerful sperm.

Yes, that news has been shared on media, both local and social.

Can anybody suggest a good high-powered rifle/scope combination for hitting moving targets up to about 1000 yards away from an elevation of about 15 stories? Oh don’t worry I’m not gonna shoot at people, just cars.

The Stinger company is doing marvelous work these days, I’m told.

Found a reddit thread today about how much your boss is like Michael Scott from The Office. One of the responses was, “He would call us into his office and show us funny youtube videos from a few years ago”.

/I’ll give you one guess as to who invited an office clerk into his office to show her the “Can’t Hug All Cats” vid yesterday.

/Damn

That’s harmless. Some reddit boss stories are … not

I once recognized the top comment on a reddit thread as being from a coworker. It was relatively innocuous though.

scotchnaut

The wackiest of all the wacky theories behind why Eli was pulled? John Mara and GM Gettleman were preserving his W/L record at 116 losses and 116 wins so that he wouldn’t retire as a losing qb. Wowza!

King Hippo

that’s…quite a way to run a professional sportsball organization

Eli doesn’t belong in the same room as these guys:

Dan Marino 258-155
Jim Kelly 177-110
Philip Rivers 221-124
Jay Cutler 155-75
etc etc etc

scotchnaut

You can rattle off as many stats as you want but he’s going into the Hall just like Namath did because he went balls-out when it mattered and got the win. That’s just the way it goes with the voters that decide these things.

“Balls out” is also the reason that Peter King voted for Darren Sharper.

I still don’t get it. Maybe you should work on it in the second room. They’re not as judgmental.

The Dolphins are just amassing enough draft picks in the same year to answer the age old question: could Alabama beat the Browns?

scotchnaut

“Could Alabama beat the Browns? Of course we could. We could beat them all day long and far into the night. And then we’d beat the Blacks, and then after that we’d beat the Yella’s. We’d beat everyone till we couldn’t raise our arms anymore. Uh, what was the question?”
