“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

2019 Minnesota Vikings Team Preview.

Interior: Vikings draft room just prior to the 2019 NFL draft. Rick Spielman: "Alright guys. This is it. Our final draft board. Let's go over this one last time. I'm thinking interior offensive lineman first round. Our offensive line was ranked 23rd last year and we were hammered with injuries. We've

Your 2019 Stillers Preview

I'm supposed to preview the 2019 Steelers. Let me start with this:   This entire division makes less sense than Drumpf's cabinet. People are talking about the Browns to be good? I trust (hashtag The Pauls) to be successful less than I trust Charlie Kelly can read.   Our dear friend Redshirt let us

Guay Referendum: 2019 Copa América Day 3

Today is the debut of Paraguay and Uruguay in the Copa América. Fish out of sand Qatar takes on Paraguay and the better Guay (YMMV) takes Ecuador. But let’s acknowledge the significance of this day. Via giphy.com Happy Vasectomy Awareness Day, reprobates. The smell of baby powder makes me squirm like a vampire

Your “So Ya Wanna Watch Some Footsy, Eh?” Saturday Morning Open Thread

It wasn't supposed to be this way. There are far more knowledgeable soccer doofuses that should be doing this but I volunteered and y'all gonna bathe in my ignorance. Nether Regions/Roger Milla's Granddaughters: Cameroon played surprisingly well vs. the Canucks last time out (or were the Canucks just a little too tight?)

Losers No More! Champions League Final Open Thread

It’s the biggest game of club fútbol and we’re getting the equivalent of a Vikings – Bills Superb Owl. "Can I deesterb you for a moment to ask if you would hold these two beers for me please", asks Jürgen Klopp to Marv Levy, for losing SIX finals. For Tottenham,

Your “Thank Goodness The First Weekend Is Almost Over” Sunday Evening Open Thread

I think maybe...maybe....just maybe I drank too much yesterday during the baxetballing. Yesterday, I had bought a 1.75 litre bottle of vodka.  And then this morning I noticed half of it was gone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97ECZMvbLxg Now....(ahem).... In my defense, I did have family and friends over yesterday.  So it is very possible some of
