NFL Noise:

  • Break out the juice boxes, because Eli Manning is coming back to active duty!
    • Current & future disappointment Daniel Jones is in a walking boot with a moderate high ankle sprain, making dragging Eli out of mothballs a necessity.
      • If he does play on Monday night, Eli would meet the Eagles for the 31st time in his career. The Giants have gone 10-20 in the first 30 meetings.

  • In other injury/lineup news:
    • Running back injuries have led the Chiefs to bring back Spencer Ware.
    • Defensive injuries have led the Saints to re-sign Manti Te’o.
  • Since it’s a slow day, let’s do a little Stealing From Crimebeat!:
    • Colts backup & Jim Kelly’s embarrassing relative Chad Kelly is facing multiple lawsuits from his time in Denver.
      • He’s being sued by Von Miller’s personal photographer for injuries suffered as a result of an assault.
        • The photographer wants damages to cover “without limitation, pain, suffering, impairment of quality of life, physical impairment, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and medical expenses.” No dollar amount is listed.
      • He’s being sued by the family of the house he broke into on November 29, 2018.
        • They claim they “continued to suffer from this experience with anxiety, depression, terrors, nightmares, hypervigilance and fear.” No dollar amount is listed.
    • LeSean McCoy has settled the lawsuit brought against him by his ex-girlfriend.
      • She accused him of orchestrating the home invasion at a home he owns in Milton, just outside Atlanta.
      • The woman – Delicia Cordon – was bloodied and beaten, and $133,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from the home.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Roommate Commander is really into Xmas. There is a nativity scene on our Hall bookcase, with a crooked frame hanging above it.

As I begin fixing it, she walks by and very worriedly remarks, “Be careful! Jesus is down there!”

I respond, “If Jesus loses to me, you need a better savior.”

I feel very lucky she found that funny.

Back at the hotel. Time to get stoned.

Was a great night at a bar that historian BeerguyRob said used to be a strip club is now a classy dive bar.

So we found an old Dyson vacuum cleaner on the curb. It works fine! It’s like a $300 vacuum cleaner; obviously not now since it’s older but as best I can tell there isn’t a damned thing wrong with it. Livin’ the Hobo High Life, y’all.

Watching a show on Amazon Prime with Michael Caine called My Generation, about the hip scene in England in the 1960s, which has some nice British tunes by some classic British bands like the Kinks, Stones, Who, Animals etc. Also features a lot of clips from his movies of the era. My takeaway is that 1960s Michael Caine is the coolest Michael Caine, and maybe one of the coolest guys ever. Recommended.

Hey. Cracked open the Stone Enjoy By 01.01.20 and I am following instructions.

Going to Vegas in the morning.

Anyone want me to bet for them? $100 on red? Venmo me and we’ll be honest I swear.

ballsofsteelandfury

Flying or driving?

SonOfSpam

Driving. As long as you don’t go during heavy traffic times, it doesn’t make much (financially anyway) to fly. Plus it’s easier to transport hotel-ready food/beer.

ballsofsteelandfury

Agreed. The only problem is that it’s going to rain like crazy on Saturday. Be safe on the drive back.

Attn Beerguyrob, trivia night starts at 8….

We expect Team DFO to wipe the floor with the competition!

Or at least wipe the floor at the end of the night as part of their responsibilities.

I was working out today and bench pressed 750 lbs, which is pretty good for a Wednesday, but three of my spotters suffered strains so let’s all keep them in our prayers. God bless.

I’ll respect people who go to the gym when they’re half as strong as I was when I was throwing around 200+ lbs boards for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week. Do another rep, pussies.

I just found out that the record bench press is 739.6 lbs, but my lift won’t count because it has to be witnessed with all this official shit and stuff. Maybe next time I’m at the gym I’ll bring a camera because I lift this all the time, it’s my usual weight.

I can dead lift 2500 lbs. I don’t know what that is is in kilos.

It’s Christ’s love that allows me to do these things.

Gratliff

Through Jesus, all things are possible. For example: a ruptured spleen.

You should wrap up his text books and put them under the tree. My dad once put switches in my sister’s stocking and her only gift was a lump of coal wrapped up in great big box that had some bricks in it to make it heavy. The lamentation and wailing that day was positively Old Testamenty.

That’s hilarious!

When my father made a threat, it was actually a promise. He took my brother’s car from him, sold it and then bought a nasty Datsun B210 station wagon to drive. All because my brother was shirking his cleaning chores. And my father warned him.

ballsofsteelandfury

Your father raised you boys right!

Gratliff

It was very much just an exaggerated threat on my part until he said “no you won’t” and guaranteed that I will.

Senor Weaselo

Your dad is Adrian Peterson?

That is where I was going to go. Well played.

With Daniel Jones injured, Eli Manning is slated to start against the Eagles on MNF.

Reminder that Donovan McNabb has as many wins (4-0) in the last 22 Eagles vs. Giants games as Eli Manning (4-18). https://t.co/AC67GSFjJ6

Eli has half as many Super Bowl wins as he does wins against the Eagles in the last 11 years and I don’t understand it. Derpy play-doh eating looking motherfucker.

Yessir! I will be at a lovely bar that would fit in on the DFO pub crawl. The Morrissey (nawt Smiths). This means another one of you really exists!

I hurt my upper back a little bit working out today. Nothing terrible, just enough to make me cut things short 1/3 of the way through. It ensures that I *won’t* be working out tomorrow, though, which means WE GON’ DRANK tonight.
