Every once in a while, I’ve been known to plop down at a local saloon, watch some random sporting event and text my buddy Croshere (whose secret identity may soon be revealed pending podcast). I’ll giggle and snort out loud, knowing that if I were to pass the phone to the stranger beside me, or even attempt to explain to anyone why I was laughing hysterically while sitting there by myself… well, they just wouldn’t understand.
This past Sunday afternoon was no exception…
I’m envious on so many levels and I’m also a little hungry. Been a long time since I had me some gator strips. Damn still 2 hours ’till lunch.
I think at half time last night the Packers’ players were ” texting ” family members asking them what next would they like to see during the game (45-7) ! Like I said in my most recent piece I’d refuse to watch the entire game if the Packers were up by two scores come half time !
LMFAO! Great stuff! Texting threads tend to get a bit squirrelly the longer they go, especially when you’re rampin’ up the buzz. Been there. Bring that damn podcast on, sc family will review ya straight! 🙂
That scallop ceviche was the bomb!
Not sure what genius selected the slate of Monday Night Football games but we’ve seen some real snoozers. Minnesota-Green Bay, Indy-Tampa Bay, Rams-Giants, Ravens-Jags.
Are they trying to get people NOT to watch?
Oh, and can’t wait for next week’s huge Chiefs-Patriots match-up.
I expect you to be a consistent caller.
Hey, if Rush Limbaugh can get a million listeners, why can’t we, right?
Whoa, those are some seriously long texts. If I was in a text session like that, I’d probably just call the person, but good read nonetheless…
We often have the tendency to be long-winded. Plus we hadn’t spoken in a while and had some catching up to do.
I’d say we started texting each other at around 2nd quarter of the 4:00 games and went on til those games finished.
Good thing I had plenty of battery.
“I love hanging out in bars and hearing the guy next to me come up with educated statements like “Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the league.” Suddenly, I’m enlightened. That’s why we need a podcast, to educate the less fortunate… and make fun of them at the same time.”
We’ve just hit the pinnacle of observational humor
Oh, and your moms won’t be listening…they’re going to be busy.
I’m sorry, I’ve been watching new episodes of Beavis and Butthead…
Chris you asked:
Side question: Will Aaron Rodgers jerseys ever become as popular in Las Vegas…..
I think Vegas and Berkely/Wisconsin hear a different beat. Evidenced by an event a few years ago when the Badgers come in to play our hapless Rebel football team. The cheeseheads buried our books with heavy duty $$ on their Alvarez led warriors. Total domination by Wisky. One minor glitch though. With 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter the lights went out and were never regained. Wisky awarded the game but all bets deemed NO ACTION. 5 minutes or less remaining it wudda been official. The Camp Randall guys thought there mighta been a conspiracy……HERE IN LV?
The fans watch the games of their own volition I haven’t got to dissuade them one iota .
Chiefs Patriots ? That’ll be interesting ! I’d rather have Sasha Grey …. read to me ! If you get my drift ? Did that ever happen to you at any point in you formal education with the exception of college ? ’cause I know you had to have been getting your “swerve on” …… on and off campus ” .
Great win for Hellickson in taking the Rookie of the Year Honors in the AL . Sheilds finished 3rd in the AL Cy Young Awards which is an added bonus for the Rays .
Yup… I’ll be listening for sure 🙂 (& reading, obviously)
Lots of great lines in this one SC… but “That’s why we need a podcast, to educate the less fortunate…” is one of my favorites!
BTW… no tattooed head please! 😛
Fun post. Look forward to podcasts!
So, Dub. Podcast.
And I have some B&B catching up to do on my DVR.
I was honestly never a fan when the show first came out but I will admit to being hooked now.
Very funny stuff.
Stern got his wish. There is no NBA in Las Vegas.
It’s no surprise that the Rays rotation took home some post-season hardware.
That was the only thing that kept that team afloat this season.
If you think that’s funny, you should have heard the telephone conversation that followed up the texting.
Great also for Maddon getting his second Manager of the Year Award within the AL in five years ! Nice !
Bye The Bye …….. It Is Not All That It Is Cracked Up To Be …………..
Will the Bucs manage to ” stave off “ the Packers this weekend and stop them from at least putting up forty points on the scoreboard ? Your thoughts ?
So Syracuse couldn’t simply rest on its laurels ? Now the basketball program has become front and center stage with its own impromptu sex scandal involving assistant head coach Bernie Fine . Jim Boeheim had better watch his _ss for now ………… because the blowback on this could get real bad .
Boras sent out his eighteen page glossary to a number of teams around the league highlighting the positives of signing Prince Fielder . Did the Rays get their copy in the mail ?
Take It For What It Is !
Behind on my reading as usual, Al. I’ll be over to check out your latest stuff soon.
But as we’ve discussed, I definitely like the Rays to do some damage next year. I mean, their lineup can’t be any worse than it was this year, right?
The Bucs are two touchdown underdogs to the Packers.
The only way to bet that game would be to take the Bucs at +650… which is what I’m going to do.
As they say, a fool and his money are soon parted.
I haven’t heard the details yet in the Syracuse case.
Let’s just say that, if more and more stories like this continue to surface, I may be tuning out ESPN for a while.
