Conference Title Saturday (and Lesser Matters) Open Thread

Welcome to the last full, meaningful Saturday of wall-to-wall footy.  Cherish it, as September is a long-assed time away. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOFWHty4XFQ That was theme-free Kurt Vile.  You will RESPECT him. Everton finally ripped off the band-aid and gave Marco Silva the sack.  It is indeed very depressing to be in 18th position, entering a

Deshaun of the Dead: Sunday Night Game Open Thread

So I've been on the road all day and have relatively little firsthand knowledge of what the shit went on this afternoon. A brief (aka halfass) recap after this important message: WOOOOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Ok. I'm good. I'm cool. So the Bills (WOOOO!) handed the Iggles a golden opportunity to pull even

Drop That Bass Line Lesser Footy and JV NFL Open Thread

In honour of the Iron Bowl (MOAR below), check out this amazing new tune by the Cats who gave you 2018's Hippo Song of the Year ("Tinseltown Swimming in Blood"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mFTgJQtCPk Isn't that righteous?  I haven't heard awesome bass like that since Peter Hook (Joy Division and New Order).  It sure sticks

An Appreciation of Violence – 16 November 2019 Morning/JV NFL Open Thread

Yes, Thursday night was universal "shit on #ThePauls" night.  It's being noted, but only in passing, that Mason Rudolph tried repeatedly to corkscrew Myles Garrett's helmet off FIRST.  What followed demonstrated the unwise nature of "poking the bear" - but only Garrett and uber-coward Pouncey get the suspensions.  Dopey-ass Mason had the

What’s In a Name? Edition – 19 Oct Lesser Footy/JV NFL Bonanza

This past Thursday, I had my "every 5 weeks" haircut, rescheduled to 1:30.  I arrived before my stylist was back from lunch (fuck you, what kind of Philistine DOESN'T use a stylist??), so I walked around the corner to get a libation (as I am back off solid food).  As

Your Yinzer Injury Report 2019

Oh, I’m told this the Bye Week update? Screw that, title still stands. THE BENS TEEM HAS LOTS OF OWIES IN ALL OVER BODYSPOT This team had serious question marks to start this season, and like 908% of the offense has gotten hurt since the opening kick-off to start the season. 2-4

“Please Go Away, Summer” 5 Oct 2019 Lesser Footy Open Thread

I am starting this riposte during a 3 Oct continuing legal education seminar.  Today's predicted high in Wake County, North Cakalaky, is 97 muthafuckin' degrees.  I am seriously about to lose my mind.  Watching cold, rain, and wind in Northern Europe?   Helps a little, but also sooooooo jelly.  This is a

JV NFL Sabado Open Thread

Alas, no Lesser Footy (outside the minor league/GAMBLOR realm).  Doggone international breaks make my arse chafe.  But we have a reasonably decent September slate to keep one sane-ish. Cincinnati (+16) at Theeeee Ohio State (Noon, ABC) As much as we would all like to see JV WKRP do a thing...I wouldn't bet
