Brent has brought up the idea of putting some money on it which I am in favor of. But collecting is a different matter. I could set something up on PayPal, but they take 3% so we'd have to go with 10.30 as an entry fee or some shit

I hate Pitt, but I can't find a good reason to pick them to lose. They will though, but I can't pull the trigger.What is the Card fan gut feel against Kansas? Will Kansas even make it that far (UNLV)? I would not be surprised if UofL plays a 13, a 12, an 8, then an 6. In 1992, UC made the final four beating 13, 5, 8, and 7 seeds.Did anyone else see Doug Gottleib basically pick against every Big East team? He moved Pitt and ND on since they are top 2 seeds, but Syracuse, UConn, and UofL only with some stipulations and bullshit. The guy has something against the Big East. Rumors are that he got kicked out of Notre Dame for stealing a roommates credit card. I'm sure that's a crock, but he is a moron regardless.If Florida makes any kind of run, my brackets are screwed because I can't see them making it out of the first weekend. UK or Texas should have got that spot. Its a joke.Oh, and go ahead and write in the Bearcats for a Final Four run. They are running this Fab Five documentary on ESPN, the last time UC made the final four? 1992. First year Huggins got an NCAA bid. Can Cronin do it too? I'm going to be unbearable to be around this weekend, especially when I have to curse the state of Missouri for weeks.
Kentucky is ranked 10th in the new USA Today/ESPN Poll. Proving again that the polls mean nothing, the other four seeds are ranked 9th (Texas), 11th (Louisville) and 16th (Wisconsin). The three seeds are ranked 8th (UConn), 12th (BYU), 14th (Syracuse) and 15th (Purdue).http://www.usatoday.com/sports/coll...ll/usatpoll.htmyeah, this makes a lot of sense
Anyone know how they decided about this first four shit? Who plays? Which region? etc.
Weekend partying has left me physically sore 2 days later.
what the fuck did we do to get so sore? please tell me it was more than the walk to the bar and kinect
I think mostly for me I didn't move much yesterday and stayed on the couch watching basketball and that usually messes up my back.
Happy Pi Day errbuddy!
Phil, this looks like something for youhttp://gizmodo.com/#!5781142/this-b...ling-alcoholics
Seems like the bottles would rub the shit out of your thighs
So going back to the brackets, I dont get how they justify some people doing well at the end of the season...Personally, if you dont finish strong, I think that should affect your draft selection. If you are Pitt and you go out in the first round, I say you lose your #1 spot. If not, then it seems like you would just say screw it, we're a number one, lets just rest up for the tourney.
I agree with you Brent. Although I don't think the last 10 games should decide whether you are in or out, just seeding.Look at Missouri, 14-1, 14th in the country, but finish 9-9, lost 4 of 5 to finish. They got dunked all the way down to an 11.Texas: they lost in the finals of the Big12 and get dropped to 4.Georgia confuses me. How are they a 10-seed? I'm starting to notice a common thread among teams over-seeded. Weren't they on the bubble 5 minutes ago? I guess until the bubble became the stuff rising up from the toilet (VCU and UAB).
How the 68 teams ruined the brackethttp://deadspin.com/#!5781536/they-...goddamn-bracket
I can agree with that, although, Villanova losing to USF and losing 5 straight before that made a pretty good case to be left out of the tourney. Personally, I like the idea that a bubble team now has the right to play in the dance...I think it at least makes that game interesting.
...and by being left out of the tournament, you mean get an 8/9 seed, which is probably the worst seed to have.
How are we doing the money thing for the bracket? Put a second one in with the big east not blowing it like they usually do and UL as national champs, so that one should be disregarded.
someone sent this to me and I thought it was stupid but by the time I got to the end of it I couldn't stop laughinghttp://i.imgur.com/oBlh7.jpg
this plae is dead.
anybody see this? i just want to know how a 17 y/o runs game on a 38 y/o married mom. i would've loved to have known when i had a hot student assistant teacher for sophomore englishhttp://www.wlky.com/news/27191208/detail.html
all kinds of good stories today, dude wasn't drunk driving, just getting a present from his girl on the way home:http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...dyssey=obinsite
Girl at work had her as a teacher back when she went to Manual. Apparently that teacher was a big deal back then. She said other teachers were jealous of her and didn't like her because of the way she dressed and such.
Another woman at work has a freshman at Manual and she isn't very happy.
The comments are pretty hilarious, I like these:--Consider the following. If the teacher had been from Male High School,then the headline could have been:"Male teacher resigns after being found with 17-year-old male in a parked car."--Man, why doesn't this happen at the "Parent/Teacher" conferences?!--He may have went in the car a boy, but he came out a man.
I asked a guy I work with that is younger then me if he remembered the substitute teacher miss nutt when he was at Trinity. He was too young to remember her. He missed out.
What was the other teacher that was hot?As the dude if he ever had Ms. Sweet has a substitute spanish teacher.
Ms. Nutt was the only one I remember.
Ms Sweet would have been about 5 or 6 years ago I think
Frau Gerding's daughter made an appearance one day that had the school riled up. I don't remember Ms. Nutt being all that hot except for the fact that she was a young blonde who taught at an all boys high school and rumor had it she was an aerobics instructor.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Star Warshttp://www.collegehumor.com/video:1949406
.... and the fact her last name was NuttI recall the football coaches used to have to escort her through the cafeteria.
Yeah, those noble football coaches sacrificing themselves to walk the hot chick around
For those who didn't get a chance to record the Fab 5 documentary, someone uploaded it to Vimeohttp://vimeo.com/21017076
quality 30 for 30. I was pleased by it.
I dont know why, but I cant stand Jalen Rose, he always has this arrogant smirk on his face.
joe, looks like trutv is recentlyhttp://www.michaelsinsight.com/2011...ch-madness.html
Bellarmine won the region, on to the elite 8.
I just can't stand the Fab Five because they stole a championship game from Nick Van Exel.
Rip Nate dogg.Brock, so did Kenyon martin's leg.
...nearly 10 years later.That was interspersed with a dozen or so second round losses, a horse punch, and Pitino taking 2 bluegrass teams to the Final Four.Here's hoping that having a little irishman on the sidelines will give us some luck on St. Paddy's Day.
joe, i'll be at dino's tomorrow for the games, i'm taking off
don't think i knew that tracy mcgrady was a UK fan, said he was going to UK if he had gone to college:http://www.mlive.com/pistons/index....y_supports.htmlso both he and dirk nowitzki are big UK fans and would've gone to UK, i think tubby would've had a much better resume if they actually played in college
What's the address again? Im taking a half day.
text me tomorrow brent. I only know the street.

I hate you
Morehead huh... the jokes at Pitino's expense are about to multiply exponentially.
My bad... I wrote that at halftime. I didn't seriously think that was going to happen.

How about you talk about basketball for once, the NCAA tourney is going on for christ sake...what happened to you wes?
FSU is looking good right now, can they hold on.
Jesus, Kansas might have to play a 12th, then a 10th or 11th seed to go to the final four...I would like to be in the SW bracket right about now
Shit they are putting it on Notre Dame. VCU put in on Purdue. Not good for teams that sport gold.
Phil, blue white cup shout out on the radio by deener. He says his team has a shot tonight. Any thoughts.
don't know if anyone saw this last night, but barkley and pitino were getting into it about how the big east is vastly overrated, and then they flipped to the ND / FL state score, which was only a couple minutes into the game and ND was down by a few, followed by pitino guaranteeing a ND victory. i found it amusing
My team should get smoked. We are big underdogs. I'm thinking about just stealing this VS Commercial as my pregame speechhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niHSWYE-PLI

Did you hear the Calapari sound clip "teams don't want to beat UK, teams want to be UK."
Sounds about right.Pat Forde on twitter about his chat for today: "Programming alert: I'll be chatting on ESPN.com at 2 ET. Tourney to date, coaching carousel and NAPA know-how all topics of discussion"
you have to realize when you listen to calipari speak that absolutely everything that comes out of his mouth is directed at recruits. his comment about the 'greatest night in uk history' at last year's draft was for recruits watching the draft to hear, that comment is for recruits considering other schools to hear
Yep, but he is right.
right on what Worm?
that ohio state wishes it was Kentucky?
Every school that plays basketball wishes they were UK, maybe with the exception of UCLA (I have to put that in there for the mob). I am not talking about this years team specifically, if you guys are then I apologize as we are speaking about two different things. No body wishes they were UK's team this year, but many teams wish they could change places with them.I am talking about the tradition, the fan base, everything that encompasses the program.
I wish my team hadn't been to the final four in 13 years.
Live feed of the bellarmine gamehttp://www.ncaa.com/live/2011-03-23...arterfinal-no-1
Bellarmine by one with 3:45 left
wes is talking about the program, not about teams. the program as a whole is unlike any other, always #1 in attendance, national sales of merchandise, rabid fans that will travel absolutely everywhere, on national TV more than any other program b/c it always brings the highest ratings, all while not going to a final four in 13 years. only gets better whenever we start going back
Bellarmine plays tomorrow t 6 on CBS Sports Network. Everyone to Shenanigans for the game!
Heard Preston Knowles had a lis franc fracture...should have never taken his shoe off.

BECAUSE OF HIS ASTHMA
UK players don't get asthma.
http://www.petitelapgiraffe.com/index.phpIts a tiny giraffe like the direct tv commercial!
Pitino's new nickname - Safe auto. Does just the minimum to get by.
Douglas - You know you can't explain anything to UofL or UK fans with respect to their programs. The hatred runs deep on both sides, so both are blinded by big brother and little brother roles.
Joe - were you even born the last time UofL won the national championship?
Can you do simple math?
You were alive for all of 2 of u of k's championships?
I have no idea why you guys are bickering when the real focus should be on hating Ohio State. I mean the only coach more shady with recruiting than Cal has to be Thad Matta. Come on, with a name like Thad, you know he has mob connections.
So are you rooting for UK or do you hope they both die in plane crashes?
nothing good ever comes out of any OH state victory, unless it's over UNC or Duke
in football, nothing good ever comes out of an OSU victory, ever
Drew Deener is an uk hater this week only to turn around and be an ohio state hater over the weekend.
I have no idea how old you are Joe. If so, I would not have had to ask the question.
And you have to admit, it's close.
Not only was I alive, I was able to drive Adrian and myself to the Ace Hardware to get Tubby Smith's autograph.
I am not hating on Joe or Louisville. UK beat them in football, basketball, they lost in their conference tournament and lost to Morehead in their opening round NCAA game. What do I need to hate on?
Dude, I was at bellarmine at the same time as you. Either I am a genius that graduated bellarmine at 16 or I am within a few years of your age. Congratulations having a driver's license. Who brought hate into this?
Damn you were there when I was there. I thought you came in after I graduated. It's all hazy when you go back to school and lose touch with reality.I have no clue who did. Probably Brock, he is just pissed he is a Cincy fan. It could be worse though, he could be a fan of THE Ohio State University.And they are right, no good comes out of an OSU win.
Damnit Brock, why you got to be a hater?
i think thad matta has asthma, so fuck him
No one got my Thad "the mob son" reference? Damn you people.

I'd pay to see this:http://twitter.com/jcharles25/statu...964112691314688
true, even jared sullinger called UK the mecca of college basketball
Yes he did. It's funny that neither side is wanting to piss off the other team. Of course, Cal will say anything to get a recruit's attention.
"I remember Tubby Smith was head coach and he had Tayshaun Prince and Keith Bogans" Sullinger said. A true mecca
"It's a great program," Ohio State freshman Deshaun Thomas said. "I think Tubby Smith used to coach there."
doesn't change the fact he called it a mecca and highlighted two players who are starting in the NBA right now.
also said 'if you want to play college ball, that's the place to go'
I just like that the "great tradition and history" that all of college basketball wants to be apart of apparently playing for the team that they think Tubby Smith coached.
tubby holds clout with the brothers
So with that logic, wouldn't the blatant ousting of Tubby hurt said rep?
Bellarmine basketball tomorrow at 1:00. We will be at saints.
Oh, great Joe. I guess I have to cancel bells tomorrow too.
Awesome game, now I'm jacked when I need to go to bed!
Hard fought the whole way.
I like to think that Tubby Smith channeled himself to Cal tonight. Great game plan by Cal.
I think we owe Jorts a new nickname
I can say that I am not overly excited about playing UNC. They simply beat the shit out of Marquette tonight. That game looked like a damn scrimmage.
UNC is streaky. They are young, so if they get put out of their game early, they will force bad shots. I have a small contingent of die-hard UNC fans that have painstakenly described these points to me on multiple occasions.
Well that's good for UK because theyre a team of veterans.
Papa John's Ten Milerhttp://connect.garmin.com/activity/75141608I think Adrian was airlifted to University Hospital.
These announcers are jocking BYU-Hawaii far too much. I guess when your team isn't ethnically diverse, it doesn't warrant any discussion. I mean Bellarmine doesn't even have one polygamist on their team.
Arizona might as well be playing a home game

I actually called in this morning. I asked if he thought they'd bring back the denim uniforms to honor Jorts and his hard work.
I'll be over that way today, Douglas. Do you want me to drop it off?
yeah, if you want to, just call me and i'll come out, i park on the side of the building next to embassy suites. it's 9920 corporate campus drive
Awesome.I'll bring it by today.

Deener was funny today. He is taking his lumps. I'll lgive him credit for running a good show today.

UK's legs are gone.
Uconn has played more games then uk.
Uconn has asthma!
I am not saying they aren't tired as well, both teams looked it but UK kept hitting the front of the rim which is indicative of the kids not get any lift on their jump shots.
Not that it really means anything, since UofL lost in the first round, but it's a little interesting that they are 3-1 against the 2 championship teams. Fucking Morehead.
The big east season prepped them well then, or cal has a bad conditioning program. Maybe harrelson ran a few to many suicides. I think vcu tired as well.
Or it was asthma or the altitude.
On the bright side, the Reds are looking good. Votto may have a monster year.
Based on what I've read on the internet and heard on the radio, I believe the NCAA may still award UK the victory for last night because they shot bad. Not sure why the NCAA didn't do that for UNC or Ohio State though. Must be a final four only thing.
I hear world wide wes negotiated the victory, phil.
I seriously just read that Liggins is considering going pro. Not joking. It was on the courier journal.
I want an infrared turkey cooker
Liggins is projected late second round and has a kid. Plus he's 23. I bet he enters the draft with no agent just to see. It'd be silly not to. I've been a fan of his defense all season long - I could see an NBA team like the Spurs taking him late in the secondThe wacky one I've heard is Miller.

I have no idea how I missed this, but apparently Adam "The Sausage King" Froman has made his way onto NFL Draft boardshttp://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/2011...adam-%E2%80%A6/
Second in the Sci bracket! Hell yes.
miller won't go anywhere, the only reason liggins would is b/c he's got a kid now. i have no idea who will go and/or stay, i could see all 3 freshmen leave just as easily as i could see them all stay.
and god damn, i can relate to UL fans better than ever after that game. not that UK didn't blow numerous chances to win, but UConn got every fucking call, including a few that didn't exist.
I thought the refs wanted to be UK?
Im completely biased but I agree with Douglas...another thing that pisses me off is the way they flop...its dirty play.
i think what pisses me off more than anything is that even w/ no calls whatsoever going our way and the putrid way UK shot the ball, we still would've won if liggins' 3 went in. if we had lost to OSU or UNC, i would've been more content b/c we played well and we just would've been beat by a better team. UConn was not a better team.
the flop was hilariously bad. The nut shot was funny too.
What about that 3 point foul? Was it a foul, I need someone unbiased to tell me...because I didnt think it was, I thought they pretty much let Kemba Walker do whatever he wants...there was one play where he dropped his shoulder pretty hard and I thought he would have been called and he wasn't, if Knight would have done that, Walker would have flown halfway across the court.
free throw shooting is more likely the problem.
If UConn wouldn't have gotten hot and hit 8% of their threes it would have been a different game. UK should have won by 25
don't get me wrong, UK sucked shooting free throws, just hit a couple more and the whole game changes. same thing w/ some gimmies in the first half they missed. and they missed wide open shots, very similar to WV last year, they had the looks. lots of reasons they lost, and none of them had anything to do w/ UConn, which is what pisses me off.
If preston knowles hadn't taken his shoe off UL would have been playing Butler Saturday.
the difference between UConn's % and UK's is that UK had open looks, while everything UConn threw up was contested. UConn had to work for every one of their points, except for some of their free throws of course. kemba said as much after the game
or if faried's asthma kicked in
Sorry, just giving you shit Douglas. Fact remains all the "facts" UK fans are giving for losing could have easily been said by Princeton, UNC and Ohio State fans. It's why they play the game.Anyone see the picture of Calhoun on ESPN today? It's creepy.
Maybe my bitterness is compounded by me having to watch the game with Josh and Alycia who were cheering for UCONN the entire game and of course they are the first one to talk bad about UK fans...Alycia even made a negative comment about Josh Harrellson...I mean what can you say bad about that guy? He's the feel good story of the year!

Shit, you should have come over to Lynnie's I actually felt bad for Cheryl. Yeah, we were for the most part rooting for UConn but its not like we were talking about shit about Jorts.Plus there was delicious Turkey
My brother and his girl came over and rory was over at my house so it was packed...had I known ahead of time, I would have definitely went to Cheryl's.Who talks bad about Jorts, I mean who does that? smh.
I thought your brother was a Louisville fan too?
I thought we were pretty reasonable in our game watching. We didn't make it too bad for Cheryl. I think lynnie was the worst of us.
He is but he is not an anti-UK fan like Josh and Alycia...he was cheering for UK.
i'm hoping for a power outage this afternoon
Truth be told I'm not sure I could watch Louisville games with Josh and Alycia.
I'm a little bummed out you can't be on whether the UConn championship will be vacated on Bodog
Did I miss something? This was posted on bodog recently:Will Chris Brown be arrested in 2011? Yes +200 No -300
It's raining sideways!
how long ago did he go apeshit on the today show throwing chairs?
Got me. Apparently recent enough that bodog thinks he's gonna go crazy go nuts soon
it was a couple wks ago, he didn't get arrested though
That happened I think last week, I put money on UCONN to win it all...3.5 points favorites...how can you not?
highlight of the game had to be the UConn dude getting chucked out of bounds and screaming "what the fuck!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8-XMzs3vW8
i only saw the first half, which was horrible, but watching sportscenter this morning was pretty funny, listening to all the talking heads do everything they could not to call that the worst championship game ever.
Butler looked fatigued.
it was the asthma
Radio just said rumors of Cal going to the NBA? anybody heard anything?
Im guessing that rumor will play out every year.
I'm guessing Calipari puts those rumors out himself every year.
he won't leave this year, too much invested in the incoming class. not that he won't ever go to the NBA, but he knows his legacy won't be complete w/o a title. if UK wins next year i could see him going, but only if the right job pops up that he could win an nba title right away, like miami or something
the only other big 'knock' on his resume, other than no title, is the perception that he failed miserably w/ the nets. i think if he gets the college title, he'd like to get the nba one too
The perception he failed miserably? He got fired 20 games in with a 3-17 record because the players weren't listening to him. Jordan even at one point joked with the Nets bench asking why the put up with him. I'm not sure how else to perceive that than a spectacular failure. The rumors aren't coming from any legit sources, and they all read like press releases from Calipari. He might be interested, but I seriously doubt the NBA is interested in him.
Text I got from one of the goalies when I asked about his surgery:"Good it feels 100x better already i have the video of the scoping but i have to watch it they put me on vicatin so i get pretty loopy but the only pain i feel is I think were they put things in my leg but other than that i feel fine thank you"

phil, late response, but you know what i meant...no doubt his second year absolutely sucked, if i remember his first year wasn't too bad and they actually improved
the gov't will shut down, but if i remember veterans affairs don't get shut down. 70-80% of the government doesn't shut down in a gov't 'shutdown.' that's why it's funny to listen to reporters speak about it like it's the end of the world. if you work at a federal museum or park, you'll get a paid vacation, and if you need a passport you'll have to wait a few weeks

From the footnotes of US v Sypher:The court notes here that defense counsel appears to have cobbled much of his statement of the law governing ineffective assistance of counsel claims by cutting and pasting, without citation, from the Wikipedia web site. Compare Supplemental to Motion for New Trial (DN 199) at 18-19 with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strickland_v._Washing ton (last visited Feb. 9, 2011). The court reminds counsel that such cutting and pasting, without attribution, is plagiarism. The court also brings to counsel's attention Rule 8.4 of the Kentucky Rules of Professional Conduct, which states that it is professional misconduct for an attorney to "engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation." SCR 3.130(c). See also In re Burghoff, 374 B.R. 681 (Bankr. N.D. Iowa 2007) (holding that counsel's plagiarism violated identical provision of Iowa Rules of Professional Conduct). Finally, the court reminds counsel that Wikipedia is not an acceptable source of legal authority in the United States District Courts.http://scholar.google.com/scholar_c...&scilh=0#

I think he meant apparently it is not a joke. It seems it is certainly going to be made. Without Rufus I don't know what the point is though
Oh wow, its like he knows his career is a joke and continues anyway, like the elephant man joining the circus to be laughed at for money...sad.
I enjoy this deep philosophical look at Keanu Reaves.
I think keanu might realize that the soul of his career comes from bill and ted. And by revisiting where it all begins is the best way for him to regain the true keanu. This isn't a money grab by him, but more of a retrospective onto what it means to be keanu
he made so much money off the matrix movies i'm pretty sure it's not b/c of that
How you feeling today Douglas? That was a good ride yesterday. Brent, you run too fast.
i feel fine actually, the legs were kinda jello-y last night but i'm fine today. once i get used to doing cardio that hardcore again it'll be much better. my ass doesn't hurt as bad this time either. hopping on an elliptical at the Y for half an hour on your lunch break isn't the same as riding trails for an hour and a half outside
Rumors is that Bellarmine will play Xavier, Duke and Louisville next year in basketball. If that's so, Louisville will play three national champions in Pikeville, Bellarmine and UConn.
I heard that rumor too.
UL just has to get back their 'best in louisville' title so they had to schedule them. yeah, i heard that about those teams as well. props to davenport for going after the best. i work with a guy that is buddies with someone that played for davenport last year, don't remember his name, but apparently he's a grade a asshole. not sure if that is just a shitty player bitching or what, but found it odd b/c he seems to be rather charming in interviews and such

Hey Joe, how were the trails yesterday? I always talk about getting a MTB but can never pull the trigger.
trails were awesome. dried up from the rain, but not too dry. A few puddles to make it fun.
Seems like Bellarmine is playing Xavier quite a bit the last few years. Is this a test run to see if they can jump into the A-10?If they did move to DI, what conference would be best?
"investigators said they never had to deal with a naked man attacking a robot before"http://www.wftv.com/news/27460794/detail.html

So next week apparently I get to work; however, I will be paid after a budget is in place.
Oh, so you "get" to work with no pay. Sounds like a great benefit.
When you had your lawn service, did you keep cutting people's lawns assuming they will eventually pay you when they get their budget in line? Brock, is your research based on gov't funding? Will it affect you at all?
i'm guessing he's state, not federal...
If they missed paying for a week, their lawn tended to get higher because Id push to the back of the queue. A lot of people paid up front monthly.
Our research funding is encumbered at the beginning of each year. If they do slash funding, then it'll come on the next year. However, they typically award less new funding versus cutting existing funding. It can happen though. However, it doesn't affect my salary. Id be let go before they the cut my salary.
None of this should matter to me soon if I get this biotech job in Nashville or if I decide to start a company with this MBA student.

Back to that link Joe posted about Warrior Dash (http://warriordash.com/info.php) the other day -- here's the race that a guy from work ran. It's called Tough Mudderhttp://toughmudder.com/Tough Mudder is 13 miles and Warrior Dash is 3 miles.
I don't like to run more then a couple miles. Even when I was a quasi-serious runner I never went more then 5k. I didn't care how far I could run, I just wanted to see how fast I could get done.
I have to admit the Warrior Dash seems a little pathetic, I think 5 miles would be the optimal distance for something like this...it at least leaves a little room for error, with 3 miles, you mess up on one obstacle and it could cost you the race.

Can anyone explain why this Justin Verlander play is a balk? Joe, Mr. Umpire, or Douglas? Thought if you stepped back off the rubber first then you could do whatever you wanted. Or does this just go under the generic "trying to deceive the runner" rule?http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/bi...?urn=mlb-wp3620
I believe it is illegal to do a pickoff move to an unoccupied bag. That is a legal move if a runner is going home.

The balk play has caused deadspin to go into a fenzy. They wanted to post a video of it, but mlb won't let them. So they posted a ms paint picture of it, and later decided they'd get little leaguers to reenact them
The food was edible, but got much tastier as the night progressed. The dollar hot dogs really needed to be plumper like the high life dogs.
Without a doubt the high life dogs are superior. Pat was highly disappointed he didn't get to go.

I feel a variation of this play happened in one of the major league movieshttp://deadspin.com/#!5794133/high-...de-at-the-plate
if you want to play technicalities he could have been called out for jumping over the catcher or for an illegal pop up slide.
Jumping over the catcher and some pop up slides are illegal in HS baseball? What about college? I thought the only rule was going straight into the base.
I believe it is high school down. You can only jump over a player if they are on the ground or something like that.
I would never be the umpire that makes that call though.

Anyway I bought a six pack of Guinness while I was bringing the octopus home and left it on the table next to the tank. Somehow this dipshit got out of the tank, which had a screen and rock on top of it, opened one of my beers and somehow managed to drink it.

anybody had directtv? decent? Is it me or is insight just a rip off? has anyone had Insight call their bluff on threatening to leave? insight told me they could lower my bill 31 dollars a month for a 1 time charge of 25 dollars.
I'd have either Directv or Dish network if I could. Although I'm told the AT&T uverse is the best option available right now.
U-verse isnt available in my neighborhood yet.
i did that w/ insight, the $25 fee for a lower monthly payment, i've done it twice now actually. you just gotta suck it up with them. i'm waiting for uverse too
I think I am going to do the $25 thing, dump the house phone and change some of the packages around. I need ESPNU which is the digital standard package which is $10 a month for all the ESPNs like news and U, Versus, DIY, cooking and everything else that is new in HD, while I don't need the HDPack which is HDNet, Universal HD and 4 other channels which are $8 a month. I think that is a good trade figuring when UL plays on ESPNU I spend money at resteraunts so it pays for itself.
I had DirectTV and I really liked the service but it was a lot more expensive than Insight. So my goal was to save money and since I dont watch TV that much I decided to go with Insight but my ultimate goal was too save money. The best thing I liked about DirectTV was I could record things from an app on my iPhone. That was really neat.

name 4 national league MVPs who were on a world series champion in the same season as their MVP season.
pooholes and ryan howard are the only two I could think of that are MVPs that have played in world series recently.Kirk Gibson did it too I think. I seem to recall on the highlight video of his come run them flashing that stat. Other than that it's probably someone from the old reds teams from the 70s like Johnny Bench or Joe Morgan.

Good article on Sergioshttp://www.imbibemagazine.com/sergio
Been lots of rumors over the weekend about Bender being investigated by Forde about UCF. Now Matty Bangs is saying UK's favorite journalist Pete Thamel is also looking into him. Should be interesting
Gibson and Morgan are 2 of the 4.
the other 2 are prior to 1990
There may be more than 4, I caught part of it on the radio and they only mentioned 4.
I have not verified the answers, but the 4 they said on the radio are definitely correct. it isn't ridiculously back in the day either. they both were in your lifetime phil.
3 out of 4.
Hmmm, next guess would have to be someone from the braves.
Was it a pitcher?
Dale Murphy. Gotta be him
edit the question to since 1970, 4 people have done it. Last one played for the pirates.
So I got Gibson, Mike Schmidt Joe Morgan...but not Dale Murphy?How about Roberto Clemente?
So you got Gibson, Mike Schmidt and Joe Morgan. Clemente is close, but not correct.

Three game sevens tonight. Sabres v Flyers at 7:30 on versus followed by Blackhawks v Canucks.Canadiens play the Bruins at 7:00 but no tv
The fact that the Blackhawks came back from being down 0-3 is amazing to me. They didn't seem that good this year and Vancouver has been pretty solid.I'm hoping the Predators get the Red Wings in the next round because they owned them this year.
I'm watching the Canadian feed for the Canadiens game. It's fucking insane. It's like a skit from How I Met Your Mother about canada
They just did a special segment on this dudehttp://www.baylorbears.com/sports/m...ns_danny00.html
The Flyers are owning the Sabres right now.
Blackhawks are lucky to be only down 1. When Henrik Sedin snuck on when they got stuck with that long shift it could have been trouble.

All I saw was that they were investigating Bender being a runner. My guess with Kanter is that Bender was acting on his own and running his mouth. The dude is delusional. I just don't get how Bender gets associated with Kanter to begin with.
I've heard bender is just trying to catch on somewhere and doing his own thing with talking with players. He wants his "in" but he is doing it the wrong way.
If anyone is interested, my brothers are coming down to Nashville for the weekend. You are welcome to crash at our place if you like.The marathon is on Saturday morning, so I'll be out and about yelling at friends to run faster. Things are certain to get a little more entertaining as the day goes along.
over the last 24 hours would you rather be Prince William or Cam Newton?
newton, he probably got to bang a bunch of groupies and party after getting drafted first, while old willy just lost his freedom in front of billions of people.
my office has been split pretty even. In the long run hell yes the prince, but for these 24 hours I'm rocking the #1 draft pick.
Randall Cobb is going to be a stud since he ended up a Packer.
I think it will be interesting to see Fairley line up next to Ndamukong Suh in Detroit. Also if it were me i would have taken Dareus as the number one pick. I guess Carolina believes spending the money on Cam was a wise choice. Personally i think he will end up like Vince Young. A Waste!
here's the forde article on Kanter and Benderhttp://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/...tory?id=6453773
Happy birthday Schweitzer
either cheryl kicked ass or someone had her chip. Does anyone have the answer? 1:40, just 10 minutes behind brent. adrian and lynnie good times as well. Dodson broke 2 hours. cat scott and Douglas' sister were in the 2:05 range. Tiffany's time isn't posted yet. Anyone i missed good job.
Cheryl was cooking out there today, we ran the first 6 together.
I blew up after mile 7, completely fell apart, walked 4 times...so pissed, here are my splits.http://connect.garmin.com/activity/82470221
Don't hate. I've worked really hard this year. The training really paid off.
wasn't intended as hate. I'm impressed, good job.
There is no way I could ever finish in that time except with a bike =) I sold my bib to a friend who apparently is a much better runner than I will ever be.
You could have kept running with it and I would have believed you.
"Kept running with it" nice Joe.
I was getting ready to post that ford article. Looks like your source was right

So does this concede officially that Navy Seals are bad asses?
FUCK BIN LADEN!
anyone want to go to PHT tonight? I heard that this is the same day that Hitler was killed? anyone confirm this?
Phil, the PSN joke was pretty good.
they announced his death on the same day hitler's death was announced, may 1sti'm already sick of the osama shouldn't have checked in on facebook andthe same hide and seek jokes
who would have thought they should check the multimillion dollar palace they built?
At least he got to see the royal wedding before he went out.
Do you think Bin Laden is plowing some virgin ass right now?
i like to think he's the virgin ass that's getting plowed right now in hell
what's fucked up is that he was staying about six miles away from a pakistani military base

There's a nice AMA from a crew chief on Marine One on reddit today:http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/commen...ef_i_flew_both/I liked this part: "Cheney was a dick in several ways. He was always late, 15 min at least. He never saluted except in one occasion when there was mass publicity. He was always grouchy and left a mess in the helicopter. Also, part of our job was making sure the back of the plane was stocked with snacks and whatnot and he would take every packet of peanuts he could find! I even tested it one time and I put 12 packs, 12!, in the back...all gone. This sounds dumb but it was just one small thing to irk a crew chief...because that meant you had to restock them all which was a pain."
May the 4th be with you!

So the 4th of July is coming down the pike. I will be ordering some parts to build my next launcher very soon. I also have requested the 5th off.I have a pretty bad ass idea for a grand finale. We will be putting last years to shame. The launcher i am going to start building will be part of the finale since it will take forever to load up the shells. We can use the 10 shot launcher for shooting shells up until the finale. We will need to hit up the free shells so we have a lot of filler up until the finale. And by God those ass clowns down the street got owned last year and I am sure they will re group and try to compete. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
My buddy pat might come. He has 300 mortars left over from last year that he didn't shoot off because of the police.
don't get me arrested. I'm thinking like Adrian, some 10 shooters to pass time and get the hopes up and then excalibur and red white and blue the hell out of the street and get inside before the cops know what hit them.
The drudge report had photos of the other people.

whenever you all go fireworks shopping let me know
anyone that gets those magazines that have coupons like the savvy shopper and other things, don't throw those away until you check them for firework coupons. I'm not expecting them until june, but just save any firework coupons you find.
I am placing an order with pyrodirect to get the mortar tubes. I saw an electric firing system. I will see about that for next year.
i'm thinking an electric firing system would come awfully close to an arrest. i'm also thinking it probably would be worth it
The key is awesome, but not too awesome to where we get shut down.
if we had remote firing systems distributed amongst all the houses then it'd be like an "I am spartacus!" situation where they'd have to arrest the whole neighborhood so we'd be safe

10:15, brandon knight staying or going?
gone. jones said he's still 50/50
Knight would be a fool for staying with Teague coming in
deener just said that jones actually could stay. who would thought TJ at UK stays and TJ at Louisville goes.
the difference is jones can actually still improve his draft stock, jennings didn't have much of a chance to do that and with a weak draft, he's taking his chances now
Jess said Jones looks like a ninja turtle. That cracked me up.
i also don't think jones is quite mature enough yet to handle the nba, i think if he came back, playing with the guys coming in so defenses aren't specifically built to stop him like they were at points this season, he could really flourish.
Knight is looking like a top 10 pick. You go.
We were talking with a security guard down at 21c and he said John Wall is staying there.

Phil, my co-worker's daughter is going to college, it has to be a dell, but what would be the best computer for her to get?
almost anything on dell is great. she want a laptop I assume? It also depends if she wants a big hefty sucker that has lots of power, or something slim. My guess is a pimped out Inspiron 17-R would do her well. Pretty portable. Big ass screen and keyboard for typing out papers and more than enough power to do college stuff.
Phil, what's the name of our sever at Bearno's, Danielle?

Are you sure, I thought Danielle was the usual one.
I looked up Bearnos Bardstown Rd on the facebook and that's what came up.
Hell, we've been fucking their names up for so long they probably wouldn't be shocked if we thought their names were Samantha and Hank.

where are you ending up moving to?
We haven't bought a house yet Douglas. We went to look at this house in St. Matthews last weekend. It has a 1/2 acre lot and I loved the house when I walked through the door, but then I got to the 2nd floor and basement which were all chopped up, complete opposite of what we have now.http://www.semonin.com/PropertyDeta...amp;AgoraPage=1I am stalking the Woods of St. Thomas, Holly Springs, and keep looking in the Mockingbird Valley and Indian Hills areas. Owl Creek has a couple houses that I like over there but not sure if we want to live that far east or not. Any neighborhood suggestions?
I wouldn't even mind finding a house that isn't turn key, but rather one that I can renovate. We found one of those in Hurstbourne that we like, but I think it would be just too much renovation. Quite frankly I don't have time while in school.
so someone bought your house already?
I like Indian Hills, but the trick to that is finding one that has been updated. Same with hurstbourne. Those houses are all in the wierd older age range so you need to put some work in to modernize them.
its sad what I consider old homes now.
Yeah, it was on the market for about 2 weeks and we got an offer and negotiated back and fourth, settling in at the midpoint between their offer and our listing price. We are extremely happy with selling and we made some cash on our house. We close next Friday. Total time lapse is 5 weeks from when we put it on the market. Now just trying to find a new place.
Exactly Joe, you are absolutely correct. Plus, trying to find a basement that doesn't have low basement ceiling heights is near impossible in that time frame. I think that is what I have realized most here recently. If I buy an "older" house then I am going to have to buy a 3000 square feet above grade as those house's basements were mainly used for storage and laundry and not finishing for living purposes.
We are also trying to find a place with at least 0.3 acres of land, hard to have in St. Matts.
if you are in st. matthews accept the fact you will get water in your basement.
Why is that?
Plus I'd like a 4 bedroom and at least 2.5 baths.
just checked my insight bill online and they say i owe 280 bucks. been on the phone for 15 minutes and on hold.

Thanks for the heads up Douglas, might have to check out that neighborhood.
Joe - my big complaint with insight is every month was a craps shoot as to what our bill would be. We were paying $185, then i canceled some stuff and restructured so it was $145. Next thing I know it was $168 and oscillated between $160 and $175....and we never rent movies or anything extra. It really confused me.
Chris was paying less than me and getting more stuff. Made no sense.

what happened last night? My neighborhood is a disaster area. Trees down everywhere, power outages. I had to make multiple detours just to get to Breckinridge Lane.
huge ass storm, it woke me up about 4:30, i looked out the window and couldn't see my street the rain was so thick, the tree in my front yard about snapped also
Laura just said there is a neighborhood party in Nancy's yard to remove a big ass section of her tree that came down next door. At the same time MSD is working on the street to. Hopefully MSD doesn't have to do too much work. Wouldn't be suprised to come home to the yard dug up or something.
that hospital in joplin got destroyed. people across MS are reporting xrays and shit falling from the sky

Gonkart roman candle jousting
the jousting idea is brilliant. or set up an obstacle course and do like they do the run for the rose every year, where the waiters do an obstacle course and see how little they spill, except substitute water for beer
I will be driving to DC in June. That means I will be in atleast WV, VA and can hit Maryland easy. which of these states will have the best fireworks. I don't feel like researching this myself. Of these states, where do they rank in comparison to IN?
http://www.fireworks.com/fireworks_...ws_maryland.asplooks like all those states aren't any better than KY. in the dropdown box you can see all the states' fireworks laws. TN and MO seem to be by far the best places to buy them, at least in KY border states. i say we road trip it to TN one day, it's only a couple hours to the border
According to the internet, Missouri and Tennessee are the best bets.Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Virginia and even West fucking Virginia are listed as "States that allow 'save and sane' fireworks. Ohio only allows Sparklers and novelty fireworks.Tennesse, Pennsylvania and Missouri are listed as states that allow almost all consumer fireworks.Source: http://cache.gawkerassets.com/asset...ireworksmap.jpg

I was waiting for that to hit the news. A women laura rides with is an FBI agent and has been talking about this for a while.
I'm taking a harassment class on harassment. Holy shit it is insane. First of all it starts with "You know that asian man who people poke fun of?" which is just comedy gold. Then the reason they give for not making fun of people in wheelchairs and asians is that one day they might decide to sue the company for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Glad to know that corporate isn't worried that making fun of people in wheelchairs is a real dick move, it just could cost them some money.
This is awesome. Apparently I am allowed to make fun of 25 year olds and weirdos, but people 45+, jewish, quadriplegic people and the italians are off limits. 45 seems a little too young to be protected. I got that wrong. Kind of surprised the italians are protected. Fucking itays
Fuck. Communists working in an accounting department ARE NOT protected from harassment, but chinese people in american bookshops and men at a female only night club are. I know that the person who sleeps around who wants a job in guest service wouldn't be protected. I do like the idea of someone saying they were discriminated against because they whored around to get a job though.
Bam, I'm on a role. Definitely nailed "Squeezing a woman's bottom", sexist jokes and calling a woman "baby" as being sexist.I was iffy on "Coworker tells her that her new hair cut and color looks very nice on her." Apparently it is ok...especially if you are Tom Bradyhttp://www.blinkx.com/watch-video/t...gII_oYNH7gQfUpA
Fuck! Missed one. Of the benefits of a company having harassment training is apparently an increase in the efficiency in which claims are processed. Always an important reason to keep people from making fun of the disabled!
Ha, there is now questions about Mark "The Wheelchair Jockey." I figured out pretty quickly that Mark was being harassed. I'm like a harassment savant.
Wow, they just pointed out that gay people aren't always protected but if you work for the federal government they are.Why not just tell me "How about you not make fun of the gays just to be sure"?
Ha, they just asked me if making fun of someone for being a hard worker is illegal. Definitely not! Harass away!Definitely allowed to also harass someone for liking hotdogs
The picture they used for race as unlawful harassment is a white dude.
Ha, my streak continues. Definitely identified the woman called "gimp", the mexican called "wetback" and the 47 year old being told that she needs a face lift. I'm a genius
Shouldn't you be at trivia?
This is my trivia. They just gave me a fucking essay question asking me identify "Actions that you think would be unlawful"
My answer:Telling that when they use the office kitchen they look ever so seductive. Forcing someone over the age of 60 to make all of the fast food runs because they can use their AARP discount. Asking asian people to help you with numbers because they are good math.
Signing birthday cards with "hugs and kisses" is OK. You cannot refer to someone as "sexy employee" though.
I've gotten to the part of the course where they make it very, very clear you should never, ever contact the government right away if you are being harassed.
voice actor just read a parenthetical note as part of a dialog.
That was fun.
i wish my harassment training was like yours, for some reason mine is much less fun. they only tell us what we can't do, not what we can
It was surreal. It was definitely not for peons like myself
one of the lawyers for the terrorists is Karen Sypher's lawyer. Not the one that got the blow job, or the one that plagiarized wikipedia though. I guess he had to make a name for himself.

if you didnt get the text, save family savings magazine and savvy shopper....FREE FIRWEWORK COUPONS!
well shit, it looks like they got rid of the no purchase necessary artillery shells. bull shit!
Got my coupons
ND player posted this about pryor and it made me chucklehttp://lockerz.com/s/106808978
Joe I just saw that also. Major BS! Oh well we will still be awesome
powder keg's website has free artillery shells with $49 purchase. I have a feeling we will still get some free artillery shells. Good news is there are excalibur coupons! Excalliburs, roman candles, black cats and red white and blues.
We are going to overthink the purchasing of fireworks. I'm going to DC through the 18th. I'd say lets go sometime between June 24th and July 1st.
Sounds good to me
Also at one of the red neck shops last year they were selling the cheap artillery shells for a couple bucks. Worst case we can get some boxes of those for filler
I'll talk to my neighbor Trin about a school project model home to shoot with roman candles.
Eiffel Tower or Mosque would be kind of funny
at least we'd run a lower risk of getting nabbed by secret service. i do like the mosque idea, we could put little osama figurines on it
What about the osama compound?
I believe if you use the Osama compound, then you have to have "America. FUCK YEAH!" playing in the background.
they need an osama compound lego set.
that'd be fine too. i'm surprisingly not picky about what we blow up. as long as it catches fire i'm fine with it
Jon Stewart going off on the pizza choice of Trump cracked me uphttp://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/w...?xrs=share_copy
Trin said he will work on the Osama compound. Awesome.
Trin gets dibs on first round of go kart roman candle jousting if he provides the osama compound. I think it is a fair trade off.
Since the 4th is on a Monday, does the big event go on Sunday night?
it goes off on the 4th of July.
Got my savvy shopper coupons ready.
fucking in a graveyard is not good for your health:http://www.nj.com/mercer/index.ssf/...ling_grave.html
Adrian and I have been discussing the potential for a 4th of July casualty. Adrian says shouldn't be one, but no guarantees. I'm thinking the odds are pretty high.
I got something from big fireworks yesterday in the mail. One coupon was 50% off one item. That means I can get a case of Excalibur for around 40 bucks. HooooHooooHaaaHaaa HurrrrHurrrrHaahhhhaaa
Do we need to strategize the purchases to maximize our explosives?
Yep! I have an idea what I want for the finale so the best way we can maximize the coupons to buy the firework cakes and shells then we should be good.I hope we see that red neck again so I can try and have him sell me a box of Exterminators for 15 bucks
I hope the people down the street step up their arsenal this year
i have a feeling any step up in their game is rather inconsequential in comparison to us
i actually had a dream about buying fireworks last night. at the fireworks store they had free samples of jager
in our stepping it up efforts, we need to avoid getting the cops called.
True that Joe.
Does it matter if the cops get called as long as they don't see you setting anything off? So after the finale and keep big stuff inside until you set them off......all good.
I plan on ordering the tubes this weekend and buy more wood to finish the mortar rack. Glory lasts forever!
Just think Joe that after the 4th everyone would want to vote for you to be Mayor of St. Mathews on the basis of being awesome.
Dr. Kevorkian died...maybe he was euthanized
Worst idea for a drink ever...Voodoo Daiquiri. Consists of bourbon, everclear, and grape in daiquiri form. Served at the oldest bar in the US in NOLA.
Scratch that...Cherrybomb is the worst.Maricino cherrys soaked in everclear. 3 served in a shot, eat them and then drink the juice.
For the cherrybomb what liquor is in the shot?
I like the idea of a coordinated launch from multiple backyards through the neighborhood. You can't arrest a neighborhood!
wait for the water bottle squirthttp://boston.3432.voxcdn.com/files....RJGe5941a1.gif
we'd need to order walkie talkies or something
you make that sound like having walkie talkies is a bad thing
not at all, just saying they'd be more efficient than using phones to time everything right. if we've already got them, even better
the ones i have don't work anymore, plus they are princess ones, so it wouldn't look very cool using them to blow things in the air
Next wednesday I'm going to ask Jen Coe how to best keep the fuzz out of our hair.
hell of an idea phil. Officer Coe to the rescue. I don't think any one has any real concern other then the loss of fireworks other than me since I am the homeowner. I like chris' idea of basically leaving the fireworks in the house or garage and bringing them out in shifts. My neighbor cut her big tree down so we have 1 less fire hazard.
firework fail, don't let this happen adrian
and the linkhttp://www.barstoolsports.com/nyc/s...times-in-a-row/
Good. I am glad that tree is gone. By the way the launcher is finished.
Nice. Keeping the heavy artillery hidden is a good idea, although I'm not too worried about the cops, I don't ever remember them being much of an issue during the fireworks. Just talk to the neighbors beforehand. Of course most of the neighbors will be watching anyway
the 50 launcher is taking it over the top. Are we only using the 50 launcher once?
The 50 shot will be used for the finale. I t takes a while to load all the shells and wire them up. I am wiring it it up to load it sequentially and not all 50 shot at once.
Sequentially, so 50 go off in a row? It's a 5x10 box, right? Or are you going to have one from each row going off at a time, so 5 at a time for 10 shots? Of course 50 at once would be kinda badass.
I'm leaning 50 in a row, at the same time as the 10 shooter, and also some of those mortar boxes that we had last year all at the same time for the finale.
Yeah it's a 5X10 box that will be wired to go off one after the other. I am planning for about a 1-2 second delay between each shot so as a shell is getting ready to explode in the air another one launches.
I am trying to imporve the water balloon slingshot. thinking take some rope and make a miniature cargo net to weave into the elastic bands.
homerun derby champion!
my vote for the water balloon slingshot is a lacrosse stick head. Surely one of your douchebag trinity kid neighbors has an old lacrosse stick or something you could use.Or maybe just buy a discount one.http://www.lacrossemonkey.com/warri...strung-hed.html

I enjoyed this on deadspin's the balls deep today:Was just reading a piece on Vulture...an interview with 14 TV Showrunners. The first section is on their best failed pitch. Kevin Biegel, of Cougar Town and Scrubs offered this:"There's a real script floating around for a show called Time Jack, about a guy who, every time he masturbates, he travels through time. If he hates the time, he whacks off and he's gone. If he loves it, he can stay-as long as he doesn't masturbate. The idea is the low point of us as a society, but such a tremendous low point that I wish I'd created it."The question is...say you jump to the late 60s, music is awesome, anything goes, broads are givin up the tail like its going out of style...how long do you last before the need to rub one out sends you twisting through time? And the other side, you're transported to Nazi Germany, how long do you get stuck there? Do you drop trou in the middle of Berlin and start pounding away, hoping you can finish before you're beaten and locked up? Considering you just finished up, are you able to bounce back and draw a map of Hawaii on your stomach in a pressure packed situation?
