“Save Us, Jameis!” and Other Signs of Desperation: Tampa Bay at the Bye

So the Roadrunner's a dick, right? Wile E. Coyote has some issues of his own, no argument.  The ancient Greeks wish they had come up with a hubris myth as simple and powerful as Wile opening an ACME box. But the Roadrunner is the real villain of the series.  Weird Al Yankovic

Hey Rube: Your 2018 Buffalo Bills Season “Preview”

"So maybe there's hope. Or maybe I'm going mad... In a nation ruled by swine, all pigs are upward mobile — and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: Not necessarily to Win, but mainly to keep from Losing Completely." -Hunter S. Thompson, The Great

Your Sexy Soccer Saturday Open Thread or When Will Mourinho get fired already?

It's been one heck of a couple of weeks for ole Grumpy Pants. First,  United lost to something called Brighton Hove and Albion: Then, they lost 0-3 at home to Tottenham. The presser afterwards was... not good. Now,  the pressure is fully on and the news coming out of England is that if

Yinzburgh Stillers 2018 Preview

Raging Semi Tuesday – Roma at [grumble, grumble]

Let's blow that up a little.  Because it deserves it. A beautiful Cinderella story spoiled by essentially gifting the assdickery Redshite into the finals.  Christ on a bike. Liverpool is the worst.  You can hear German Elton John whining all the way down here in the Southland.  You know the questionable calls

Gravy Boat Ruins Derby Day (Also Whiny Baby German Elton John)
