Monday Memories – Clean Those Sox!

With the baseball playoffs in full swing, it feels pretty appropriate to use today’s Monday Memories to look at one of the sport’s biggest black eyes – the fixing of the 1919 World Series.

On October 9, 1919, the Cincinnati Reds won Game 8 of a best-of-9 series (one of only 4 times the World Series was contested that way) to defeat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 and become champions of baseball. But the Reds, an upstart team with a mediocre lineup but stellar pitching, didn’t win on the own.

Despite being a successful team, the Chicago White Sox players were not happy men. White Sox owner Charlie Comisky wasn’t exactly the most generous man and, despite the 88-52 season (and the core of the team winning the World Series in 1917), the White Sox players were some of the lowest-paid in baseball.

So, several players made deals and the fix was in for the World Series. In the end, eight White Sox players were banned from baseball by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis, including pitcher Eddie Cicotte, first baseman Chick Gandil and Sox star player Shoeless Joe Jackson (who later recanted his confession and protested his innocence until his death in 1951.

The events of the 1919 World Series led to the creation of WP Kinsella‘s novel, SHOELESS JOE, which was the inspiration for the 1989 Kevin Costner movie FIELD OF DREAMS; Eliot Asinof‘s book, EIGHT MEN OUT: THE BLACK SOX AND THE 1919 WORLD SERIES, was  also turned into a film, in 1988, starring John Cusack, David Straithairn and Charlie Sheen.

While Field of Dreams gets a lot of love, I’ve always enjoyed Eight Men Out. The ensemble cast is tremendous.

    GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKS!

  • Matt_Indeed

    I congratulate Ferrari on his team’s win last night, and hope for a stop to this nonsense this evening.

    • DAJackson7

      I really thought the Windians would pull even in the 9th, but no dice…on the bright side, four baseball games today now!

      • Matt_Indeed

        True. But we can have more games in the ALCS. Let’s get there.

      • I had about 6 heart attacks during the 9th inning.

    • No way, dude! I’m buying tickets to Cleveland for a Game 5!

      *looks at planned pitchers for next two games*

      Uh… never mind… I’ll just watch on TV….

      • The Professor

        You don’t want to see it with Mikey?

        • Honesty, that would be a fucking blast and would make the trip 100% worth it. But if Sonny Gray is pitching…? I have no faith in him to give the team a chance to win.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Never got the excitement over him. Like, anyone can pitch in Oakland and Gray’s record was mediocre on the road.

          • Well he’s certainly proven to be nothing special since coming to the Bronx. All that hype For jack and squat.

          • Brian_Bayless

            I kept telling Yankees fans he’s a #4 starter at best.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m on a juice cleanse. God help us all.

  • The Professor

    Nick offerman was good last night. He sang and played some songs. he had some funny stories.

  • The Professor

    One thing that was ironic. Offerman went on for about 15 minutes about getting off your phone/social media. Guy sitting near me was on his phone the entire time. He checked his phone every two minutes including his bit on getting off your phone.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m going to be a massive asshole by 2pm, I’d wager. I’ll remember to stay away.

    • Juice cleanse, eh?

      That sucks.

      • Matt_Indeed

        Oh yeah. Wife’s idea.

        I don’t care much for her.

        • My wife has these ideas, too. She rarely follows through on them. I am a lucky man.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yes you are. Mine follows through to a point and then gives up and goes on to the next thing.

            But she usually waits until we’re both miserable and angry before giving up, because who doesn’t love that?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Matt’s only gonna juice
      A leafy blend
      He’ll be angry and snippy
      By 2pm

      But he wakes up each morning
      Hand over his chest
      Thanks the troops
      And knows the USA is the best

      Matt is a true patriot!

      • Matt_Indeed

        I really am.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Week 5 of scoring over 100 points in Fantasy Football and still losing *flips table*

    • Brian_Bayless

      I’m beating the piss out of Peyton this week.

    • DAJackson7

      I am in two leagues…every week so far i will win in one, but lose in the other, never both.

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        3 leagues for me and I had to autodraft in all of them. Huge mistake. I have 2 wins total this year

        • DAJackson7

          Wow, that really sucks

  • Mikey

    i’m worried about the Indians now. I guess we shall see.

    Now: major league or bad news bears breaking training

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      A League Of Their Own is good

      • The Professor

        so many great lines
        There’s no crying in baseball
        Moooo; will you shut up
        Did you promise the cows to write?
        Hey cowgirls, see the grass? Don’t eat it.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          Oh and The Sandlot

    • DAJackson7

    Indeed College Football Power Rankings for 10/9/17:

    1. Alabama
    2. Clemson
    3. Penn State
    4. Georgia
    5. TCU
    6. Washington
    7. Wisconsin
    8. Ohio State
    9. Washington State
    10. Miami

    • DAJackson7

      I’d say that’s about right

    • ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? What is WRONG with you with these rankings? How ridiculous!

      * I don’t watch college football. These could be very accurate for all I know.

    • The Professor

      that’s about right.

  • The Professor

    One weird thing is that Hollywood makes so many boxing movies when boxing is not that popular now.
    Football has been the #1 sport for about 30 years but I can name all the good football movies on one hand.

  • The Professor

    On the same idea, how many great basketball movies have there really been either over the last 20 years?

    • Matt_Indeed

      As far as I know, there have been only 2 great basketball films, and one of them was a documentary.

      • Matt_Indeed

        Hoosiers and Hoop Dreams.

        • DAJackson7

          No Teen Wolf? I’m amazed….but really, basketball and football are not movie worthy…it’s to many moving parts in a team sport. Boxing, Golf, etc are individual sports and baseball breaks down to a one on one competition anyway.

          • The Silver Fox

            Best football movie: Brian’s Song.

          • DAJackson7

            Yeah, that’s usually listed as the only good one. Rudy was just to much, Little Giants sucked, and Varsity Blues was so so awful at game development

          • I DON’T WANT… YOUR LIFE!

            Want to see the new Tweeter end zone dance?

    I have one of those tiny ass cans of V8 juice for lunch, so I will hurt all of you.

    • Brian_Bayless

      When the clock strikes noon
      Everyone is on a lunch break
      Eat some good food
      While Matt has a tiny ass can of V8

      He wants a sandwich
      But only gonna taste a tomato
      He can’t visit the taco truck
      Or even eat a baked potato

      But Matt stands for the flag
      Supports the boys in blue
      If you don’t do both of those
      He’ll walk out on you

      Matt is a real patriot!

      • Matt_Indeed

        God, I do want a sandwich.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I’d like to laugh at this, but there are too many folks who eat this kind of stuff up unironically and there are a LOT of them.

  • The Professor

    Jimmy Dugan: Evelyn, could you come here, you got a second? Which team do you play for?
    Evelyn Gardner: Well, I’m a Peach.
    Jimmy Dugan: Well I was just wonderin’ why you would throw home when we got a two-run lead. You let the tying run get on second base and we lost the lead because of you. Start using your head. That’s the lump that’s three feet above your ass.
    [Evelyn starts to cry]
    Jimmy Dugan: Are you crying? Are you crying? ARE YOU CRYING? There’s no crying! THERE’S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!
    Doris Murphy: Why don’t you give her a break, Jimmy…
    Jimmy Dugan: Oh, you zip it, Doris! Rogers Hornsby was my manager, and he called me a talking pile of pigshit. And that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game. And did I cry?
    Evelyn Gardner: No, no, no.
    Jimmy Dugan: Yeah! NO. And do you know why?
    Evelyn Gardner: No…
    Jimmy Dugan: Because there’s no crying in baseball. THERE’S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! No crying!

    • Matt_Indeed

      I love that movie. Tom Hanks was absolutely tremendous in it.

    • RudoWakening

      Tremendous film

    • Tom Hanks’ delivery here really takes this scene to the next level.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    Last night me and the missus continued our Halloween viewing fest with Tales Of Halloween, a collection of stories set within the same town. It was a really fun watch, I give it a solid B-

    Underrated sports tv show: Coach

    • Matt_Indeed

      It was good until he went to the pros.

      • The Professor

        agreed

      • DAJackson7

        Orlando Breakers? i think that was the team name

        • Matt_Indeed

          Sounds right.

    • DAJackson7

      They should remake that show…but realistic, were it’s like a filming of Barry Switzer’s College Football

  • Matt_Indeed

    I have a headache. What’s next? Someone want to steal my car and piss on my shoes?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Matt’s head hurts
      Oh yes it’s true
      Might as well key his truck
      And piss on his shoes

      He’s hungry for food
      And a lunch break
      But went on a diet of juice
      And thinks its a mistake

      Now, Matt stands up
      Guns in his hand
      Bible in his arm
      To protect his land

      Matt is a true American!

    A League Of Their Own was also Madonna’s best acting performance, I thought

  • Bruce Timm on why there will not be a DC Animated adaptation of Kingdom Come:

    “The one that we hear all the time is Kingdom Come and I have to, like, crush everyone’s dream every single time because it’s just not within the scope of what we can do with these movies. The main thing that people remember from Kingdom Come, beyond the story, is the look. It was Alex Ross, breaking big, doing “photorealistic superheroes”, so if we did an animated version of Kingdom Come it would not look like that. We don’t have the money, there isn’t enough money on the planet to make it look like that, so there’s really no reason to do it. Automatically, they would be disappointed, that’d be the number one thing on amazon and amazon reviews would be “one star – doesn’t look like Alex Ross” “

  • Matt_Indeed

    The stories coming out of Vegas about the victims are just crushing. Just absolutely crushing. I don’t know how you even cope with it.

    • I talk about comic books.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I can’t imagine ever getting over that, honestly.

      • Matt_Indeed

        I don’t think you could.

  • Movies about baseball. Well look at that.

    • What will they think of next?

        Who are the ad wizards who came up with that one?!

    • Matt_Indeed

      They also are presented in color.

      • Matt_Indeed

        Sorry. Colour.

        • I appreciate the effort. I’m sorry to hear about the V8 for lunch!

          • Matt_Indeed

            Thanks. I am too.

          • I’m just about to have some pancakes, and then go get the turkey on the smoker in a short while.

            …..you son of a bitch.

            Congratulations on the food!

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m drinking the V8 now. It’s pretty tasty. I hated this stuff when I was a kid. Tastes change.

    • I haven’t had it in a while, but I’ve never cared for tomato juice. I like raw tomatoes, tomato soup, tomato sauce, but not tomato juice.

    • DAJackson7

      I have never liked tomato based drinks

    Supergirl and LoT tonight. Going to have to watch them at a later date with the baseball game being on.

        Thought it moved to Monday.

        • Mikey

          Whoops, Nvm.

          • I’ll be watching Supergirl tomorrow morning and doing the season premiere recap! It’s gonna be amazing until I get bored with it about midway through the season…

            Joe, though, will keep up doing recaps of Flash and Legends all season, because he’s a better man than I ever will be.

    Oskar had Frida up 5 times last night. One time he needed to go out and she didn’t hear him and he shat on the floor, which Frida stepped in this morning. So she’s having a great day.

      Oof that sucks.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Poor Osky! He can’t help it!

      • RudoWakening

        The dogs managed to get into the bathroom where Frida keeps the food a couple days ago and ate EVERYTHING. Osky seems to be getting the brunt of the bad stomachs

    I tend to like older sports movies. There was one on TCM just the other day about a pitcher for the White Sox who lost a leg starring Jimmy Stewart. There’s another about Jim Thorpe that’s pretty good, too.

    The state fair was fun! Expensive, but fun. $20 to park, $18 for an admission ticket, then you have to exchange your cash for tickets to buy food and rides once you’re inside the fair.

    Fried food I ate (most of everything was shared by our group): corn dog, Jack’s French Fries, fried Brownie bites, fried Mac n Cheese sliders, and a burger with funnel cake buns and that fake Taco Bell queso that tasted AMAZING for some reason

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I hate the food/ride ticket thing, because you always end up with extras afterwards and they can’t be redeemed for cash. I still have old Taste of Chicago tickets laying around.

    Standing behind the microphone before a hostile
    amphitheater crowd, Mr. Miller — then a 16-year-old candidate for a
    student government post, now a 32-year-old senior policy adviser to
    President Trump — steered quickly into an unlikely campaign plank:
    ensuring that the janitorial staff was really earning its money.

    “Am I the only one,” he asked, “who is sick and tired of being told to pick up my trash when we have plenty of janitors who are paid to do it for us?”

    • ProjectBlue

      It appeared he was. Boos consumed the grounds of the left-leaning Santa

    • Marv

      I dislike the guy but think it’s fairly silly we’re going after him for his high school campaign shit. Oh man he said he was going to get rid of the apples in the lunch room and replace them with M&Ms too this guy is terrible for America!

    super enjoying that black dude on Twitter that told Mike Pence he didn’t think a football game was the right place to flaunt his politics.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      What a THUG

      SHUT UP AND PLAY FOOTBALL

      • Marv

        I never pay attention to sports media, has anyone asked Kaep how he feels about all this madness?

        • Diddly: Basic B****

          LOL the breaking news yesterday morning was that Kaep said he would “play for any team” and “would absolutely stand” for the pledge

          • Marv

            Hahahahahahahahahahaha, oh I always knew the whole thing was a goof anyway. It didn’t escape my notice that he didn’t start kneeling until he’d already become a joke for being a washout.

          • Devin Harris

            He never said he would stand. They reporter corrected that part this morning

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

      Honestly its good Pence is distracted so he doesn’t start an HIV outbreak again.

    • ProjectBlue

      It would have been amazing if someone tipped off the players and they all stood. Game long cutaways to a nervous Pence, looking at his watch, realizing he’ll be late for his Cali fund raiser

  • Devin Harris

    The Sox scandal happened cause no one made money. How much money would it take to get a pro athlete to fix a game? It has to be in the billions, right? No one is throwing a game to make 10 grand

    • Marv

      Ask any of the NBA refs from about 2004-2010.

      • Devin Harris

        Refs throwing games makes more sense. No one can indicate them without indicting the entire league. They isolated Donaghy to make it go away but we know he wasn’t the only one

    • ProjectBlue

      Depending on the team and player, a million cash I bet would do it. Maybe less if you also have anything compromising on said player (drugs, gambling, women)

      • Devin Harris

        I don’t know if that would be enough to (potentially) throw it all away unless they were really hard up

          • Marv

            For real, this is bullshit.

          • Mikey

            Who’s he talking about anyone. That Reasonable Ghost?

          • Marv

            As he won’t say I’m guessing Shelly, Biff or…I think that’s it for people that have left yeah? Anyone else I can think of would just come back under their name.

          • Mikey

            I was thinking Shelton.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Shelly?

          • Marv

            I’d call Shelton that sometimes and it would annoy the fuck out of him.

  • WorldWide Duck

    I think I like Eight Men Out more than Field of Dreams.

    • Marv

      Field of Dreams is downright terrible and more people should admit that.

      • WorldWide Duck

        It’s a man version of a Hallmark movie, and sometimes that’s okay. It’s just crying about fathers and baseball instead of children and cancer.

        • Marv

          Oh it’s so bad. Take out the baseball part and not a man on earth would be caught dead watching it.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Hallmark movies are quite manly, I’ll have you know!

  • Facts

    I still wonder about Biff’s imaginary fiancee and how she’s doing.

    Also will Shelton ever show up here?

    • Is he back over there?

    • ProjectBlue

      I’m surprised both have gone so long without re-emerging

      • Facts

        I bet they are back but hiding it well.

        • ProjectBlue

          Considered it but the inherentness of them keeps hiding it from being possible. Though then again, I’m horrible at sniffing out alters

  • I am terrible at all this account stuff. Can we have a google doc that keeps track of who is who.. and when people show back up as someone else. I think I at least keep mine pretty obvious

      Or just don’t care. Which is what I try to do until someone makes it a mystery.

    I’m watching Jim Carrey on NORM and he’s just fucking great. He’s talking about how Hef invited him to the mansion and he only wanted to go in the Tony Clifton character (it was during Man on the Moon filming) so Hef said yes and rather than go Carrey sent Bob Zamuda as Carrey doing Tony lol, and Hef fell for it the whole night and was hanging out with Zamuda and just all over him telling him how funny his movies and stuff were. Then at the end of the night Carrey showed up in his pajamas and Hef flipped the fuck out.

    • Facts

      Jim Carrey has lost his damn mind!

  • Marv

    LOL and they’re talking about Rodney Dangerfield and NORM is telling a story about when they brought him on The Norm Show and Rodney absolutely refused to stop playing to the studio audience.

      • Miko363

        Oh it’s great…I drift back over here when things start reaching a point of insanity.

      Hi.

    • …………..there he is

  • The Daily Hollywood Headline Roundup:
    Hollywood decided over the weekend a couple decades is enough time to let an exec sexually harass and assault women and the Weinstein company has fired Harvey Weinstein. Harvey was quoted as saying “If we aren’t allowed to use our power to sexually assault and harass powerless women anymore… what are we even bothering to do this anymore?”

    Blade Runner under performed this weekend. The original outlook was for a 40 mill weekend that had been inching up towards 50 but when it actually came to theaters this weekend totals cam in at 31.5 mill. It’s hope now is for good word of mouth and strong hold up but that tends to be unlikely with Sci Fi.

    Thor Ragnarok has previewed for critics and word of mouth is hugely positive so far.

    Doctor Who: More is changing than just a woman doctor and new show runner. Episodes will run 60 minutes instead of the 45ish they had been running since coming back in 2005. The Doctor will also be getting a new Screwdriver and a completely new TARDIS interior.

    Beyond his own movie Black Panther will also be getting a LEGO spin off film. Thought it is not official it’s likely to be direct to DVD.

    X-Files teaser for the new season was released and even though it is very mythology heavy word is the mythology storyline only covers a couple of episodes and the rest are monster of the week. In related news Gillian Anderson said this was it for her and she is unlikely to return as Scully.

    Even though The Orville’s ratings have dropped by half since the debut it is on track to be renewed for another season. If that takes place I was obviously WAY off on the success of that show.

    The first trailer is out of Stephen King’s Castle Rock. Set in King’s multiverse Castle Rock is a psychological-horror combining “Mythological scale and intimate character storytelling “.

    That the latest Hot Gos from Hollyweird who’s who edition

    • Oh yeah and the Star Wars trailer goes up during MNF tonight and tickets should be on sale shortly after. …or before… check early and check often

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      LEGO Black Panther? I think the LEGO films have jumped the shark

    • ProjectBlue

      Hope so for XFiles, had read 8 mythology, only 2 monster of the week. And mostly focusing on William so bla

      • did I get it backward?

        • ProjectBlue

          Eh, could have been wrong at the place I read it at. I didn’t look too closely tbh

    • TatR!

      The “mythology” in the last X Files was manure. They should just drop it entirely

      • maybe Scully should just scream and they fade to black

        • TatR!

          Fuuuck I called that ending! When they stepped away from the house after that awful conversation with the owner where Cooper realises he has nothing, no clue, no answers… I was like christ this is probably just gonna end up with laura screaming and no resolution at all isn’t it and then boom

          Anyway. Broken Cooper, or whoever it was by the end (part Dale/part evil Coop/”Richard”) his “what year is it”, his desolation when his grand idea of getting to the house was revealed to be just nothing… it devastated me. I think about it all the time. His desire to fix everything caused him to become more lost than ever. You can’t fix everything, you need to let certain things go it’s not how life works 🙁

          or another intrepretation involving dreams and all kinds of stuff I can’t even

          • fine your interpretation Is fair. So you are saying the moment he convinced Diane to go with him to set things right is when he blew it?

          • TatR!

            Possibly. I think it was earlier though when he first seems to go back in time and tries to lead Laura away from her fate. She’s taken back by Judy. As I understand it, Laura not only didn’t die, she’s been pulled completely out of existence, but the person who’s taken her place at the end seems to have an even darker existence. He didn’t save Laura, he erased her, and what took her place is still living an awful, tormented life

            There’s that completely and deliberately hokey happy ending, where Evil Coop dies easily, shot by Lucy of all people. And everyone hugs and is happy and suddenly there’s this weird disconnect with Coops face and it’s not even clear whether any of it’s even happening. It’s so hard to tell.

          • See and all that…………………like I felt.. well they better make more because they really F-ed over some characters. Yet at the same time .. if he really did wipe her clean of the time line then you can’t go back for more eps to finish up any stories because everything is different. All that really annoys me. I was not expecting for each and every thing to be wrapped up with a bow but … he really seems to hate Audrey and everyone who likes her and were looking forward to her.

            Also Bobby and Shelly deserved more of an ending.

          • Marv

            Bunch of fucking dorks down here.

          • this geekery is risking to spiral out of casual control

          • TatR!

            special agent dorks

          • TatR!

            Oh yeah I mean that’s a theory. Lynch destroyed the whole idea of going back. The whole point of The Return was that you can’t return. The past isn’t how you remember it and you certainly can’t change it. He basically destroyed the whole premise of the show. Laura Palmer never existed.

          • But what was the point of the Audrey tease if you aren’t going back to it. fine she is likely in a mental hospital.. or coma…or purgatory.. or something then to just leave it there was garbage.

            My annoyance here is that Lynch was capable of better than this at other times on the show The Ed Norma ending was brilliant.. that episode. I got happy choked up there and then 20 minutes later sad choked up with log lady. He was willing to go all in on some of the main characters and then chucks others to the side. With Bobby and Shelly i’s a real shame because they were both great in their parts this season and deserved better. Not even happy just…something

          • TatR!

            Yeah it wasn’t perfect. Like a lot of places I give it the benefit of the doubt and think it was a creative choice to make a broader point, other times not everything worked. I mean it didn’t in the original show either.

            Audrey… idk. Those first scenes with her husband where they kept saying they would leave the house and then didn’t, I got the vibe that they were trapped somewhere, that this wasn’t a real place. But then they finally did go to the bar and I put it out of my mind. I knew when we got that quick shot of her in the hospital we’d never see her again, that that was it. It is a shame. A lot of people online have seen it as Lynch making a point about closure. You just don’t always get closure. Norma and Ed might work out but that doesn’t mean everyone else will

          • You are a better lynch watcher than I then if you got that from Audrey.. I was like.. OK here we go…. then after it all ended…………………..wait…WTF with Audrey

          • TatR!

            I didn’t get it right away tbh. When the episode ended I was like hmmm wonder what’ll happen next week. When the next episode started elsewhere I was like ohhhhh that’s it isn’t it.

          • So here is my one theory. Eddie Vedder… wrote this song for the show… he’s singing as coop to diane. All sites have the lyrics as I And I am who I am but I swear he’s saying Diane, who I am. Eddie’s performance is one of my favorite parts of the whole series.

          • TatR!

            God his voice is so lush. When he came on I was like wtf is eddie vedder the only artist using a fake name and it turned out that’s his actual name :/

            who knows if we ever even met the real Diane. that goddamn show

          • ………..see you say something like that and I want my 18 hours back

          • TatR!

            But idk I guess that’s the thing, it was a show about a show returning, I guess. you want cooper to be saved from the black lodge, well now he’s most lost than ever. you want diane? Well maybe. Did you really want to know how the wild 18 year old girl whose father was a criminal and her best friend was killed turned out? I mean how do you think she turned out? You want a happy ending? Well here, Lucy kills the bad guy. Was that satisfying? It’s all about expectation and narrative and how… life just doesn’t work like that.

            Who knows, I think seeing that finale like right at the same time our world fell to pieces a little bit has made the whole thing resonate with me a lot more than just a normal show would

          • All I’m saying would this have been that hard. Coop and Diane https://static.independent.co.uk/s3fs-public/indy100/bkzawXGsOW/12122-14jn25s.gif

          • TatR!

            Yeah, I know. And I thought for a second he was actually going to save Laura but…. 🙁

          • Don’t get me wrong there was plenty I liked and that is why I had the issues I did.

          • TatR!

            Yeah I know. The more I think about it the more I accept it. Were you here after I first watched the finale? I was just like fuuuuuuuuck i’m not okay i’m not okay

          • yeah… we all remember that

          • TatR!

            :/

          • Marv

            …jesus lol

          • I know he’s another dude you don’t like but Vedder is about as good as they come to me. I’d be happy if he never did another thing with pearl jam and just sat on a stool with a guitar doing stuff like this.. or just covering other people I can listen to him all day

          • Marv

            Nah Vedder’s fine, it’s more this whole thread lol

          • TatR!

            There were definitely deliberate choices made. He definitely knew everyone wanted Audrey, and making her appearance a bizzare and really quite horrible parody of herself clearly was by design, fitting into what I said below. I almost feel like the whole Harry Truman thing wasn’t the original actors idea, but deliberate by Lynch to just jar everything, to make you aware the entire time of the show that this just isn’t right.

          • Truman was the actor choice. He retired from acting

          • TatR!

            So they say!

    • DAJackson7

      None of the Doctor Who is surprising except for the run time….which will make it weird in America

      • yeah it’s interesting though it’s not like BBCA will cry and turning the show into a 90 minute show

        • DAJackson7

          I feel like running BBCA is a way for regular BBC folks to get rid of people they don’t like

      • Marv

        It shouldn’t be too bad. Don’t they do first runs on PBS or something? They did 90 straight minute episodes of Sherlock, no sweat

    Old college friend of mine who I see a few times a year is a diehard Red Sox fan and has a weekend/holiday season ticket package. His wife is a stay at home mom to their toddler son.

    I found out today that this year alone, he’s gone to 25 Sox games and a Patriots game. He lives like an hour from the park, too. I’m honestly kinda judging him at this point.

        She wants to finish up her Psych degree. One of our best friends has a masters in Psych and makes ridiculous money counseling.

  • Matt_Indeed

    It’s kind of sad that I would be perfectly happy if she just got a job anywhere right now so she can pay a couple of these bills.

    • Marv

      Honestly that would be better anyway really. Sounds like she’s diving directly into the deep end with school and a job. Just go get a 20 hour a week thing, still all kinds of time to be around TI and all that…

      • Matt_Indeed

        That’s what I would prefer, but I think she’s worried that she’s going to be really unhappy if she doesn’t find a job “for herself”, instead of just taking whatever is out there.

    ” Microsoft appears to have abandoned its smartphone operating system ambitions.

    The company’s Windows 10 chief has tweeted that developing new features and hardware for the Mobile version of the OS was no longer a “focus”.

        Pud is fucking great I was saying pud tug for like a month during the summer lol

            Speaking of, not the greatest episode this week. No Lauren again and it’s just kind of dull after the live show/LA trip

          • TatR!

            ah okay. I saw Ant was back, he no good? maybe it peaked

          • Marv

            It was fine it’s just the last two episodes were so crazy strong.

    I had to walk to liquor store to get chips and a snack, i was so hungry i felt like Matt

    • Matt_Indeed

      Did you at least buy liquor?

      • DAJackson7

        Unfortunately not, just came back to my office with snacks

        • Matt_Indeed

          Very unfortunate.

      • Brian_Bayless

        You mean like his failure of repealing the Affordable Care act, failure of tax reform, an environmental mining disaster in Alaska, and many other acts to benefit no one else below his tax bracket?

          Well, when you put it that way….

    Oh neat, the fire near Eureka has taken out AT&T cell and internet in Eureka, Arcata, and Fortuna. Frida has AT&T. Luckily at her work in McKinleyville things seem to be working okay, but that’s just because they take care of businesses first

    • Mikey

      That seems like a really stupid thing to do. Why?

      • Mikey

        Oh, California. I’m an idiot.

    • Marv

      Wow I can’t believe that fire is still going. The west coast got wrecked this year.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I saw the Mariah Carey-directed Hallmark movie last week too. So that will probably be review #2 because it was amazing.

    • DAJackson7

      Please tell me it was amazing-ly bad

      • Matt_Indeed

        It was. She also had a small part in it, and every shot of her was a close-up of her good side.

        I’m not joking.

        • DAJackson7

          Oh shit, that’s spectacular. She’s such a diva, like no one else deserves that title as much as her. I can’t wait to read that review

          • Matt_Indeed

            I just need to get this one done today or tomorrow and then I’ll start on that one.

  • TatR!

    I actually think TatR and Peyton discussing Twin Peaks is a great bit

  • DAJackson7

    Thing that really pisses me off: When ballparks have those ads behind the batter and they aren’t centered with home plate. Like these ones at Fenway are shifted to the right…..so so stupid.

  • Don’t worry guys I’m almost done talking Twin Peaks.. so anyway TatR!… in episode two……

      no way, essay length reply to my last post and then I’ll work on my essay length reply to that

    Make America Great
    Send Pence back to Indy
    Have him immediately leave
    When the players got on their knee

    The president tells the public on Twitter
    The idea was his own
    Players better stand for the flag
    Or I’ll leave alone

    Well, I make America great
    Share flags all day on Facebook
    Don’t take down Confederate momuments
    And think every libturd is a crook

    I’m a real dumb, patrtiot

        Wait, that’s creation, not distribution.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Snapchat isnt working
      The app won’t take any pics
      Diddly gonna figure out how
      He can distribute photos of his dick

      He tried renting a plane
      And making copies
      But it cost to much
      Plus the xerox came out sloppy

      But Diddly will persevere
      And stand up proud
      Recites “God Bless America”
      No matter the size of a crowd

      He hates gun control
      And when the internet lags
      Cries when he sees old glory fly
      God how he loves the American Flag

      Diddly is a real true, patriot!

    • Fucking millennial. Get outside in a trenchcoat.

      And if you think I can only do country, well, i can do pretentious, ultra-liberal music too:

      No poisonous Monsanto slop
      Nature’s fruits great to the last drop
      Pig capitalists
      Flithy, greedy swine
      In their heads it goes…..
      “mine, mine, mine”

      To ignorant to help the poor
      Unrefined and not profound
      Don’t care about anyone
      Refuses to learn proper pronouns

      Gender Fluid
      Not a disease
      But lobbyists enter the senate
      And congress drops on their knees
      You think that’s fine?
      Filthy, greedy, swine?
      Simple, uneducated Americans
      In the McDonalds line

      I barely use it. I get lots of snaps, but I don’t snap back much.

        You raised the roof with Devin!

        • Matt_Indeed

          I did. I enjoyed that.

  • I don’t think I will stay as cooper very long.. it’s not as fun

  • Matt_Indeed

    Who’s pumped for The Last Jedi trailer?

    I’m sure I’ll be watching something else that no one in their right mind would be watching at that moment.

    • I’ll be checking YouTube…

      The Daily News will likely have a spread dissecting it tomorrow…

      • Matt_Indeed

        Seems like a thing to spend an entire spread on what with everything going on in the world.

    • I’ve heard it’s super spoilery.. but plan to see other movies between now and then and am sure it will be on stuff like Thor so I doubt there will be a way to avoid it

    • DAJackson7

      I’ll just wait and see it in the morning. Can’t let the communist NFL get money by me watching!

  • WorldWide Duck

    I feel like major newspapers would do better if they solicited and printed two pages of color photos of adorable cats every day.

    • Matt_Indeed

      This was a South Park episode in which the boys had a newscast at school, and then Craig got a show about cute animals seen through a wide-angle lense which ultimately forced the boys into cancellation.

      It’s probably accurate. Americans are dumb.

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        Animals, Close Up with a Wide Angled Lense!

        Get Thad to do that with Xannie and the Casual Geekery is toast

      • WorldWide Duck

        I would be more prone to subscribe if it had pictures of cats. I might even see my own cat in it someday!

      • TatR!

        award winning TatR

    • I want to mock you for this, but I know that it would probably increase circulation.

      • WorldWide Duck

        It’s a good idea!

        • It relies on the fixed incomes of elderly cat ladies, but they make sacrifices for more pictures of felines.

          • WorldWide Duck

            Pictures of adorable cats are very hot on social media amongst all age groups.

            And were you to edit the feature, you could select the photos!

          • I would probably quit my job first.

          • WorldWide Duck

            I would love that job.

          • I’ll be on the lookout for any openings

  • Jesus, what time did this Houston-Red Sox game start? I feel like I’ve been watching it all day and it’s just the third inning…

          Good she can star in “Jay & Silent Bob: Does Anyone Still Care?”

    • Matt_Indeed

      Of course. I mean what were we missing from the Reality TV show that is now the US Government?

      A cat fight.

  • Marv

    Perverts are hilarious. I mean, it’s awful and stuff and I feel horrible for women that have to deal with that shit all the time but seriously jerking off into a plant during a big Hollywood meeting is fucking objectively funny.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Diddly concerned about his weight
          Thinks he needs a diet
          Hears about Matt juicing his greens
          And ponders whether to try it

          But when his stomach growls
          He needs something to eat
          Something rich in protein
          Not figs, seeds, or a beet

          The libturd scientist
          Says eat organic
          Just a lie from the farms
          Run by an illegal Hispanic

          Because leftists hate America
          That is very true
          But Diddly please don’t run
          Like the red, white, and blue

          Diddly is a real, true patriot!

          That’s funny to me.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      What didn’t she do, am I right?

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    We could see the end of both the red sox and the Yankees today! Its like the emperor and thanos both being on the titanic!

    • Facts

      What does that even mean?

      • He wants the emperor (The Yankees) and Thanos (the Red Sox) to sink, like the Titanic.

        • Facts

          Ahh.

        • TatR!

          Titanic has to play BOTH the Yankees and the Red Sox?

        • RudoWakening

          He’s the worst

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            Derek Jeter? Definitely.

          • Especially after that bastard just poached the Yankees’ VP of Player Development! SONOFABITCH!!!

    • TatR!

      i mean if thanos was on the titanic he probably could’ve saved the titanic

      • Facts

        Thanos and Kate Winslet star in James Cameron’s Titanic.

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        He loves death.

  • Facts
    • Marv

      I assume since it’s ESPN her crime was having an opinion of some kind.

      • Facts

        YES!

        • Marv

          At this point I don’t feel bad for anyone that gets fired from there. They all knew the risks when they signed on, that channel has infamously fired everyone that caused any controversy for like six or seven years now.

          • And yet, they keep a Cuban immigrant in his seventies with zero sports or journalism experience whose entire contribution is just saying whatever outlandish shit he feels like on the payroll.

          • Marv

            I don’t know who this is referencing but ok lol, I haven’t watched ESPN in years and years. That channel is a relic of an era when scores weren’t available in our pockets. There is no fucking reason to watch people talk about sports now.

          • *looks at my TV to see four talking heads talking about sports with “score” being kept*

            Nah, only a fucking mark would do that.

          • Marv

            It’s just like wrestling dude. Walk the fuck away and you’ll find you’ve missed nothing lol

          • I mean, Maury comes on in like ten minutes, so I’m not sticking through all of it.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It’s so true.

            Jinder Mahal: WWE Champion! All the LOLs.

    • *shrug*

      That’s show biz.

    • RudoWakening

      Once again, old white dudes fail to realise that it WAS NEVER ABOUT THE MOTHERFUCKING STUPID FUCKING FLAG

      • Had CBS radio on in the car today and some talking head was discussing how the players were protesting the president and completely ignored how the protest started and why Kaepernick started doing it. The heart of what the protest meant has been completely gutted and turned into “protesting the flag” because, again, the right is much better at messaging.

        Instead of hitting back and saying, “No, morons, THIS is why we’re doing it,” it gets an eyeroll and “ugh, these guys are the worst” in response.

        • RudoWakening

          And literally every time a Richard Sherman or Michael Bennett says that it literally has zero to do with the flag or troops, they get called out for being “entitled” or “babies” or some such Right-Wing code word for “nigger.”

          And if I recall my history, guys like Malcom and Dr King spoke up and protested on behalf of the common folks because people knew who they were and their message would get across. I hate this country.

  • Marv

    Fucking football and tweets and kneeling, jesus I miss the good old days (last month) when we were talking about impending nuclear disaster this is ridiculous

  • Marv

    The goof too is you just know ESPN requires everyone to have a Twitter account lol

  • Well, it was weird rooting for the Red Sox in that series, and as usual, they end up just annoying me. My relationship with Boston’s professional baseball team remains intact.

  • Marv

    So there is a terrible radio show called Delilah where this lady talks about her family and gives advice. It’s basically Dr. Laura except Delilah isn’t nearly as much of a cunt. I guess her kid committed suicide. That makes me feel really bad for some radio lady that I haven’t heard on the air in 15 years.

    • Delilah always put me to sleep.

      • Marv

        Yes. It was crazy that they’d play her so late at night she was death. I’d only really hear her if Art Bell was being particularly odd.

        • It was terrible when my wife suggested we keep it on while we were driving somewhere late at night. Like, are you trying to get me to fall asleep at the wheel, woman? It’s worse than late-night talk radio.

    • Mikey

      That is sad. Used to listen to her all the time with the folks on long drives home.

    • RudoWakening

      Delilah is just the worst. When I worked at this pizza shop for 6 years my boss would turn her show on EVERY FUCKING SUNDAY.

  • Facts
  • TatR!

    97% of women in First Class on the Titanic survived

    • TatR!

      Only 8% of men in Second Class survived

    • Facts

      And a lot more people would have survived if they didn’t say “All these lifeboats clutter up the ship.”

      • TatR!

        Only enough lifeboats on board for half the capacity of the ship smh

        • Facts

          After that happened, all ships were required to carry enough lifeboats to save everyone.

        • Facts

          Also I told biscuit to come here more.

    • One of the two guys that was leading the loading of the lifeboats took “women and children first” to it’s logical conclusion and launched boats with loads of empty seats because there were no women immediately on hand, but wouldn’t let men on because there were still women on board.

  • The Silver Fox

    The sinking of the Lusitania has always interested me more than the sinking of the Titanic.

      • RudoWakening

        My cable options at home are Dish or Suddenlink. We got a Fire Stick and Hulu Live instead

      80 degrees in October.

      But you know, global warming’s a myth and all that.

      • The Silver Fox

        We keep seeing high temps in the 60’s in the long range forecast, but when those days finally arrive, the temps are in the high 70’s-mid80’s.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I think the NFL and NBA should just give up with the protests, because the people who get it were already on their side and everyone else only tolerates brown folks when there are things to be cleaned or money to be won sports gambling or what-have-you.

    Focus on the next generation, the kids. Maybe they’ll get it right.

  • The Daily Beast rips on Rick & Morty fans. Again.

    Man, even the show’s creators hate its fans.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/relax-rick-and-morty-fans-youre-still-getting-your-damn-szechuan-sauce?via=twitter_page

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      It really doesn’t pay to be a hardcore fan of anything these days. Such devotion is not appreciated and often openly scorned.

      • Dwayne

        I don’t like to call myself a fan of anything because fan comes from fanatic. I’m not fanatical about anything in entertainment.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          This is fair.

          • Dwayne

            I think I draw a line between enjoying things and obsessing over them.

        • I consider myself a casual geek…

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Oh! That’s the name of the thing!

          • RudoWakening

            I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE

    • Facts

      Didnt the fans of the show go after female writers who were hired for the show? What a bunch of losers.

      • They did. Which was the most recent time the show’s creators had to be like, “Uh, what the fuck?”

        • Facts

          So stupid

  • The Silver Fox

    Vegas gunman was spending $1 million a day at video poker at one point.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      How is that even possible?

      • The Professor

        well you are a millionaire, you should know

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Rats, foiled again!

      • The Silver Fox

        Obviously had much more money than any of us. $50 is the most I’ve spent at a casino in a night.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I mean, unless he was winning millions at a time, you’d think the sheer math would put a stop to that.

        • The Professor

          Most was $200 for me

  • The Professor

    i always find it interesting that new teachers are usually very happy and smiling and feel like they can change the world

    and then usually get more hardened and usually more grumpy

    • Dwayne

      Kids are rough

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      That seems like a thankless job. You only get recognized if you screw up, not if you succeed.

      • Dwayne

        Many other jobs are like that too

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I mean on a macro level. You never hear about the good schools with dedicated staff and high graduation rates and such, only the crumbling, failing ones.

          • Dwayne

            It’s difficult because it’s not all on the staff to keep things going well in a school. Funding and also parental help play a big factor in these things.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            True. No one ever blames lazy, disinterested parents.

          • Dwayne

            I hate to blame the kids because they are often misguided or neglected

          • The Professor

            some teachers do.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I meant in the media. A school doesn’t fail overnight, there are signs and warnings. And yet, when the state/city says “enough” and closes a school, there’s all the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Maybe some parents DID get involved, but not enough to make a difference.

          • The Professor

            There are some bad schools in my district. What usually happens is the parents will send their kids from that school to go to a good school. The good school will become a great school and the bad school goes to a horrible school.
            Best middle school in my area has about 2400 kids. Worst has about 700.

          • The Silver Fox

            Not a lot of choice in my district: 1 high school, 2 middle schools and 5 elementary schools. Plus 1 private Christian high school, a k-12 and a k-8 Christian school.

          • The Professor

            Yeah theres like something like 500-1000 schools in my district

    • The Silver Fox

      I’ve seen that many times over the years and I’m sure I was like that in the 1989-90 school year.

      • The Professor

        ive had several student teachers over the years. They usually come in all bright eyed. Then once they see how certain kids are, some can feel bad.

        Example: if a kid gets a fail on a test whenever everyone else did great, they feel bad for that one kid

        • RudoWakening

      Abortion shouldn’t be limited to the womb

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    My grandmother was a minister, and was all about the King James Version of the Bible. So I grew up hearing that stuff, and “weeping and gnashing of teeth” stuck with me like glue and I never tire of using it.

    • Comdukakis

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I despise organized religion. It is the root of the vast majority of the problems today and throughout history

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I was just trying to decide if you were taking a shot at my grandmother and debating how to respond. It’s probably best to let this one alone.

            You make it hard to like you sometimes, Com.

          • Comdukakis

            I dont’ ask you too. I’m me. And being me, I don’t care for organized religion. If that was a character flaw of your grandma so be it

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne
          • Comdukakis

            and I don’t expect a response but for the record the original point had nothing to do with your granny specifically. It was, much as I often do, taking a remark and then making a larger point.

    • I was baptized, but in a super relaxed church, and then mostly raised without religion.

  • The Professor

    Here’s my response with religion: Why should I follow a religion just my parents believed in it? Should I be a democrat or Republican just because my parents were? Should I be a dodgers fan just because my parents are dodgers fans? Why can’t I make up my own mind and decided to not have a religion?

    • Comdukakis

      well truth be told the vast majority do all the things you said above.

      • The Professor

        very true

    • The Professor

      I usually respond with that when people say why I wont go to temple or date a nice Jewish girl?

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE, BUDDY.

      I don’t know. Some families just don’t work that way. It’s like the guy who has to start working in the family restaurant at age 5 and then ends up running the place and working 24/7. Did he have a choice? Not really.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      You’re probably right but much of what I am I just copied from my father so I can’t talk.

    • RudoWakening

      My parents (and their parents before them and their parents before them, yadda yadda yadda) are Catholic and we’re not at all pleased at my apostasy and subsequent non-belief in God/Yahweh/any higher power

  • King Harvest has surely come.

  • Facts

    I think we all have the choice to believe or not believe. I mean we really dont know what happens when we die so just enjoy living.

  • Facts

    But Im more annoyed by the followers of Rick and Morty.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I am decidedly not religious, for the record. There’s probably a God, but there’s just as good a chance that there’s nothing and this is it.

    • Comdukakis

      I don’t know if there is or isn’t. It’s hard for the human mind to contemplate something just happening. We want to believe their is something more. At the same time I’ve always said (half serious half joking) that if there is a god, he must be a huge egotistical asshole to expect us to spend so much time worshipping him/her/it rather than just being good people and taking care of his creation. But then again that attitude says more about organized religion as it is most often practiced than any god per se.

      • The Professor

        100% agree

      • Dwayne

        The whole thing I hear from more religious folks than I is free will. You can do and live how you wish but there are consequence to those choices.

        • Comdukakis

          well sure. but in the meantime why should I spend my time praying to a bearded man in the sky who apparently gets off on having people pray to him?

          I’m a firm believer in being good, in being a good steward, paying it forward, all that stuff. And if you aren’t there are consequences. But the whole church/worship thing is just crazy, especially since so much of it was a mechanism to first control the masses (still is) and later fine tuned to ensure male dominated power structures.

          • RudoWakening

            BUT HOW CAN YOU DO THAT WITHOUT GOD!!! WHAT STOPS YOU FROM RAPING AND MURDERING?!

          • Comdukakis

            well seeing as how most of your worst murders and rapes were in the name of religion (and still are)….

          • RudoWakening

            Crusades, jihads, yeah this checks out

          • The Professor

            people think its weird that one can be an agnostic/atheist and still have good morals.
            “Where do you get your morals from?”
            “basically from the philosophy of dont be a dick to each other”

          • Dwayne

            There are many things that are clearly influenced by man and used to control people. Some of these things are useful to society. I have no problem with someone wanting to pray and believe in heaven if that gives them peace but the bad thing is people interpret words from centuries old books how they want and use them to bring down others.

      • RudoWakening

      Bruce, you are not the father

    • Marv

      LOL I was just thinking of her too. I don’t really get what she was thinking. She’s been so all over the place politically over the last year that no one really likes her.

      • The Professor

        should have just stayed at fox news

        • Marv

          For her career, sure. She was probably tired of getting chased around by people with their dicks out though

            The Astros will pummel you in the first inning. Those first 4-5 guys in the lineup are tough outs.

          • This is what I’m saying…

            I was at Yankee Stadium in 2015 when the Astros beat the Yankees in the Wild Card game. I don’t wanna watch that again.

    Better option: 3 (7?) more years of Trump or a military coup?

      I’d guess Trump because there’s at least some form of controls over him.

    • RudoWakening

      Coup, just as long as it isn’t lead by John McCain

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Just keep him drugged out of his gourd and wheel him out for photo ops. I’m still not convinced that they didn’t do that for the last little bit with Reagan.

      LOL that’s literally exactly what happened the last time a Star Wars movie had a Monday night trailer premier. They put the Shield back together and everyone that watched it enjoyed it while everyone that turned away to watch the trailer shit all over it and went off about how they’d ruined it and wasted the moment and blah blah blah

        THANK YOU. I could not remember his name. I just kept remembering the actor’s name.

          • Macklin JeriPratt

            I wasn’t impressed at all. My intrigue in TFA came from Finn, Rey and Ren.

          • Marv

            Ah right, because Vince hates it which is why it’s awesome (pay no attention to the fact Vince fucking loves it)

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            But the (edited and incomplete) archives is what they’re paying for!

          • Dwayne

            I actually love the archives. You can say well it just gives them reason to put out the same product. And I say that I really don’t care if the current product gets worse. I only care about the stuff I care about

            Probably. I had to ask Bayless who the champions were the other day.

          It sucked! They fucking ruined it!

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          • RudoWakening

            This is a correct statement

  • also… I like Star Wars…….I liked Force Awakens. I love Rian Johnson and assume I will love Last Jedi. that

      It’s too bad The Force can’t be used on a keyboard.

      • what did I do wrong?

        …beyond the is also thing…. which yea.. that’s weird

  • Matt_Indeed

    I don’t watch wrestling anymore. I don’t begrudge those who do, but I do silently judge you.

    • Marv

      I don’t begrudge anyone either. We’ve all experienced being trapped in a loop of dissatisfaction. More than anything I feel bad.

      • Matt_Indeed

        That’s a good way of putting it. Like dating a girl who gives you a toothy BJ. It hurts all the time, but she still gives you that BJ, and no one else will!

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      That’s gimmick infringement!

    • Dwayne

      Judge me. I love my old school shit and I watch some indie stuff along with some japan and WWE specials. Don’t really need the weekly shows. I don’t take this shit seriously. I think there is something wrong with people who get mad about fake wrestling

      • Matt_Indeed

        Well said.

        • Dwayne

          Like if you just take it as a silly tv show it’s cool. But the people who are so super passionate and emotional about it just confuse me. Maybe I’m just not that emotional or passionate about shit that don’t matter.

          • Marv

            More than hating what they watch I’m more fascinated/disturbed by the constant thinking in wrestling terms. That’s one of the things I’m most happy to be free of, that whole thing of thinking about real life in terms of heels and faces and shit. Or even just simple shit like wanted to talk about who is second tier in Hollywood but thinking about it like “who is the IC champ of Hollywood?” It’s fucking weird and I’m glad to be rid of all that for sure.

          • Dwayne

            Oh geez. I don’t get that either. Wrestling was never an obsession of mine. It was just something I watched like I watch sports or whatever. I don’t think or talk or wrestling terms in real life. That’s kinda odd

          • Dwayne

            I get it if you are in the biz but to go around life talking about pops and jobbing and shit? That’s next level lol

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I do occasionally think in terms of heel and face turns but that’s about it. Like that Senator turning heel (face?) on Trump.

    I will admit I enjoy Episodes I through 6 but I wish they were doing something different.

    • 1 has it’s moments. 2 is pretty god awful. 3 I have not revisited in years..will be soon once The Star Wars Minute starts up again

  • I am fine with my wrestling fandom. I sometimes get disappointed with what they do but for the most part I fast forward through garbage and watch things I enjoy. Yes they still book poorly at times but that just means I FF through more WWE stuff and spend more time watching things like NJPW and Lucha Underground.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m purposely ignoring the fact that the Indians have completely screwed the pooch.

    So going with a glass of merlot filled to the brim lol

    • Dwayne

      That would put me to sleep

      • Marv

        I’m not against that. It will take me two or seven glasses at least though.

    • Matt_Indeed

      I don’t care for merlot because its too fruity, but if it was the only thing in the house, I wouldn’t turn it down lol

      • Marv

        This is super dry. Not as dry as I like if I could I’d just drink syrah all the time but it’s dry enough.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Well that’s good then.

    • Marv

      I’ve never been a big fan. I think because of what you say, it’s only really a special occasion thing so I never really got used to it.

      • Dwayne

        Yeah it’s not really a thing to do all the time

        • Marv

          You’d go diabetic so fucking fast trying to get a buzz on that shit haha, eleven bottles later and you’re ready to start partying

    • Matt_Indeed

      Champagne is dangerous, because I can drink it easy.

          • Matt_Indeed

            She still freaks out about pooping. She’s so smart, but she fears poop.

          • Marv

            He’s a lot better about doing it now that we have him a little spot just for himself. And it was silly before because someone would have to go prop his ass on the real toilet and all that and no one at any age wants to announce they’ve gotta go. Getting there, slowly but surely. This is the last kid after this if someone even looks at me with a diaper I will implode lol

          • At this point, I definitely fear poop.

          • Marv

            Must be a big city thing.

          • Dwayne

            It’s one of those things I picked up in office environments. They have all this free caffeinated shit. I’d be coming to work with little sleep and needing a pick me up.

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Oh, I don’t drink herbal garbage. I’m talking manly regular tea here.

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Has anyone said “Fuck the Yankees” tonight? Because I feel it’s due.

    • Marv

      I really don’t enjoy this whole “Hey but we didn’t buy it THIS TIME” bullshit

      • Stranger In the Alps

        They’re from the biggest market. They bought it.

      • Whine whine whine whine whine.

    • LET’S GO YANKEES!

    • Matt_Indeed

      You can hear that in any southern state.

      • Stranger In the Alps

        It’s usually followed by a horn that sounds like the General Lee’s horn.

    • Dwayne

      I’m no Yankee guy. I root for the other NY team. My sister is a fan

      • Marv

        I’ve heard of this team. I also hear they let their actual fans go to games.

        • Dwayne

          Yes. Regular people can actually buy tickets to watch them play.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Unlike the other team, who are forced to let mutants in who won their tickets from talk show hosts.

        • Or, you know, random people from the surrounding area who need something to do…

          • Marv

            Who ever needs something to do? It’s the greatest city in the world there are like three great bars there to go to.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            I want to visit that McDonald’s I saw on webcam.

          • On a Saturday night, it’s 4. On a Monday, 2.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            And Sbarro’s!

          • That closes at 6.

      • Macklin JeriPratt

        The NY Mets are my favorite squadron.

  • Marv

    Ok that glass went a wee bit too fast.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Feels like 30 seconds ago.

      • Marv

        10 minutes or so, I poured the second one like a regular respectable glass of wine. I had to do a reaaaaaallllllly long blink where I squished my eyes to focus my chi lol

    • Did you drink out of an actual wineglass? Because if you drink wine out of any other container, you feel like a full-on alcoholic.

      • Marv

        Regular glass I’m not a farmer.

        • *drinks box booze out of a Yahtzee shaker dismissively*

          • Marv

            lol

      • Dwayne

        I think Marv is quite comfy with being a full-on alkie.

  • Matt_Indeed

    If we ever meet, just order me a bourbon at the bar. Its apparent it’s my drink at this point.

    • Marv

      Np

    • Appletini for Indeed. Got it.

      • Matt_Indeed

        The John Dorian.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      This “alky-haul” sounds intriguing, too bad my kidneys are shot I might give it a go!

      • Marv

        Nah see that’s why you should definitely give it a shot you’d get so drunk so fast.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I’d also probably die, so, you know…

          • Marv

            Dude I’ve never had anyone die at a party before that would be epic brah

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It would make for a great funeral story!

            “How he die?”
            “He met some guy on a blog and went to his house to get drunk.”
            “Huh? Was it a sex thing or something?”
            “No one knows, when the cops got there, he was on the floor dead and the guy was sitting on the toilet drunk laughing his ass off. And his kid was on a potty next to him.”
            “…Jesus Christ.”

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Let alcohol replace your blood. It’ll be fine. Plus, you’ll be suave 24/7.

  • Marv

    I can’t even possibly explain how great this Halloween IG picture is going to be.

    • I’m gonna carve out a pumpkin and put the kid inside and take all the pictures.

      • I have no idea what I’m getting roped into for Halloween.

      • Stranger In the Alps

        I know it’s your first kid and all, so….don’t forget to let her out.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Alright, I’m going to sleep because I’m a Pussy. Later geeks! See ya tomorrow.

  • Marv

    When he says Lets Go Yankees I hear it in Todd Petingill’s voice from that terrible song parody he did like five years ago on PLJ

    • That’s… I… Huh?

      • Marv

        Yes, you.

        • That’s so mean.

          • Marv

            You should stop saying it then.

          • Fuck that. I’m gonna enjoy my team winning, just like everyone else here would’ve rubbed it in my face if the Indians took it, even though I’ve said the whole time the Indians are the better team.

            Bring on the hate. THEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!

          • Marv

            Sounds just like Todd Pettingill.

          • I hope he’s still rocking that bleached blonde hair I saw him in a while back. With the earring and hair, he looks like a lame Top 40 DJ version of Spike from Buffy.

          • Marv

            I’m pretty sure no matter what his look currently is it becomes lame Top 40 DJ automatically.

          • Yes. Exactly! And then I’ll find the appropriate comparison to make, “lame Top 40 version of…”

            Man, Indeed got you really liquored up…

          • Marv

            You’re not wrong.

  • Marv

    I thought I was an alcy then I met Mikey. Lawd I’m a grasshoppa that dude is The Master.

    • Dwayne

      Dude was drinking so fast I thought someone was trying to take the drinks away from him

      • Marv

        Someone did take his drinks away from him here lol

        • Dwayne

          He was taking ours lol

          • Marv

            It was so great. He got his shit pulled at one bar so we went 50 feet down the street to the next bar and he just weeble wobbled in front of the guy taking the ID’s while I stood on the curb and smoked. I didn’t even bother putting it out I knew there was just no way lol

            Then he bought a large pizza at a restaurant and stood right outside the door of said restaurant and offered every girl walking in a slice of pizza and two hotties took him up on the offer and stood there chatting with him for 10 minutes.

            Kid is a fucking rock star I love him.

          • Dwayne

            He’s living it up. We all did those kinda things 10 years ago

          • Marv

            I think that’s why I enjoy hanging out with him so much. He reminds me so much of me and I know how to handle that guy really well, I’m good at the watching and making sure everything is ok without really letting the drunk guy know they’re being babysat lol

          • Not all of us.

  • Dwayne

    LET’S GO SPANK ME!

  • GAME 5! YANKEES WIN! THHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!

    • Marv

      Yuck. If the Tribe goes out this early then the postseason really is a bust.

  • Marv

    I’m watching Tim Allen on NORM and he’s laughing at the idea that liberals enjoy that his show got cancelled because almost his entire writing staff was young and liberal.

  • Marv

    If we do another meetup I want to do it in Pennsylvania or wherever at one of those hotels with a heart shaped bed and or bathtub.

    • Niagara Falls? Like in Superman 2?

      “Hey Marv, check out this barrel… bet yeh can’t fit…”

      • Marv

        I would be super into all that, yes.

  • Marv

    Fucking Matt got me all wined up like a white girl and fell asleep no wonder his wife is out looking for a job

    • Marv

      I’m not entirely certain what that means.

    • YEAH! Fuck that guy! He won’t be Facebook friends with me!

  • One of my bosses, throughout my shift, has been making jokes about the Yankees beating the Indians on Columbus Day. It was kind of funny the first time…

  • Marv

    I’m drunk so I’m watching a documentary about the China/NK border.

  • Marv

    I think I would like to go to China.

    • I think I’d prefer it to Japan.

      • Marv

        I want to do Japan really bad too.

        • I know China has way more people, but Japan strikes me as somewhere where I’d be screaming “I NEED SOME FUCKING SPACE! CHILL OUT WITH ALL THE PEOPLE!” way more often.

          • Macklin JeriPratt

            I don’t know about Japan. A little perversion is fine but they go overboard with their perversion. It’s a perverted kind of perversion.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Oh God.

      • Marv

        They have decent hotels there.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      Months from now we’ll look back on this as the creation of the Geekery China meetup.

      • “The Gang Gets Mikey Sent to a Labor Camp.”

        • Marv

          He’d end up drunk wandering into North Korea while Dwayne and I cheered him on and Ferrari looked on in a complete panic.

          • I’m picturing a shithammered Mikey re-creating the Tank Man picture from Tiananmen Square, but holding a pizza box instead of a bag.

          • Marv

            Hahahaha

          • Oh my God, we need that PhotoShopped…

          • Marv

            Please please please remind me of this tomorrow

          • I’m drafting an email to send when I wake up.

  • The Professor

    Watching shark tank.
    This is guy straight out of college. His app only 169 users. He expected to get a deal and his idea is awesome and he worked super hard. They all crushed his dream and now he’s crying to mommy

  • Marv

    Yeah this doc is all about these crazy border cities in China that have bridges into North Korea but all the bridges are closed. And on the China side it will be a freeway and on the NK you can see over from tall buildings and it turns into a dirt road.

  • Marv

    Actually I want to go to North Korea lol

    • Dwayne

      Me too. If Dennis Rodman likes it, it’s good enough for me

      • And that was how Dwayne learned he would enjoy banging Madonna.

      • Marv

        Hmm. I’m with you right up to the hepatitis.

        • Dwayne

          Yeah. I’m not with that either haha

    • It does seem REALLY fascinating to go there knowing how completely full of shit the regime is about itself, but the downside is extremely down.

      • Marv

        It would be super interesting for sure. I’d want to go alone though just because the odds aren’t really in anyone’s favor of coming back.

        China sounds good though. And maybe looking into North Korea from the Chinese side. I really want to see the wall.

    • The Professor

      I posted a NYT article yesterday on how messed up that place really is by someone who recently visited there. Its all propaganda all the time. The people basically think they could win a nuclear war with the US

      • Marv

        That’s why it’s so fascinating, it’s like visiting Earth 2.

  • Marv

    So yeah this doc has been pretty good so far. It’s Bob Woodruff and ABC just kind of bouncing along the border and seeing what they see. It’s up on YouTube called An Inconvenient Border (blech)

    • You fucking know North Korea wishes it was an island.

  • Marv

    I don’t even get how this country has any fucking money. Like how do you operate a modern economy when everyone is using plows made out of logs and they’re being pulled by goats and shit?

    • Marv

      Errr, I guess not operate a modern economy but even have any money in your own little private empire? What could they be selling that anyone on Earth couldn’t make themselves?

      • Giant statues of the Kim family. Ain’t nobody else competing for that market.

  • Facts

    We should all take a trip to Japan.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I wish I had a mechanical hand. Not like to replace my existing hands. Just to have around. I would keep it in a box in the garage next to my artwork and Hulk Hands.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Hey, 12 seconds is a lot of time!

    *cough*

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      *if you’re Aaron Rodgers*

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    It really bothers me when there is a reenactment and the actors don’t look a damn thing like the person telling the tale.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    But seriously, if Marv posts a picture of himself on the shitter I’m gonna lose it.

    LOSE IT.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I could see him doing that for some sad reason

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Oh you know he would, LOL.

    • Sigh

  • The Professor

    Just watched star wars trailer: eh.

    • All I could think while watching it was how much like Empire the story in the trailer was.

      • The Professor

        Ill probably see it sometime over winter break but definitely dont need my ticket 3 months ahead of time

    • I just watched it. The guy in it, is that the same guy that was the bad guy in the first one? I couldn’t remember what happened to him.
