  • Dental work is expensive.

    • The Professor

      that’s why you need a dental plan (lisa needs braces).

      • I have one*, but for substantial work by a specialist it doesn’t cover the whole cost.

        *Dental plan

        • The Professor

          Ah. I thought Canadian health care would cover that

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            Dental and eye care are not covered.

          • Nah, the gubmint gives no dental coverage, it’s all through private insurers (usually work sponsored health plans) or your own pocket.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      You anti dentite bastard

  • The Professor

    http://awfulannouncing.com/espn/taylor-twellman-went-rant-ages-following-usmnts-loss-trinidad-tobago.html

    Great rant by a former us soccer player/announcer about how much us soccer sucks

    • Devin Harris

      The US doesn’t have to dominate foreigners in every single sport. It’s okay to let the rest of the world have this one.

      • The Professor

        No. Us has to be great at everything. Football, basketball, baseball, world tyrants, business, movies

      • Not even QUALIFYING for the World Cup is a little sad, though. It’s not even about dominating, just being a part of the thing.

        • The Professor

          In the 2026 World Cup, 6 teams from North America will qualify so much easier. Plus we have a bid with Mexico/canada

          • There are 6 teams from North America?

          • The Professor

            Now 3.5 teams qualify

            Also includes Caribbean and Central America (hence why we played Trinidad and panama made it)

            Btw, South America has 10 countries but 5 make world cup

          • Ah, that makes sense…

        • Devin Harris

          All real American athletes are off playing better sports. Until MLS pays like the other leagues no one is really going to bother

      • Matt_Indeed

        Plus soccer is boring and lame.

        • Devin Harris

          Well yeah, but peoples feelings though

          • Matt_Indeed

            ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • The Professor

    Speaking of dental plan (lisa needs braces), today my union is protesting because the district wants us to pay for our medical.

    • ProjectBlue

      Ours changes once a year or so, every year a little more out of pocket, a little less benefits.

  • Matt_Indeed

    GEEEEEEEEEEEEEKS

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    Soccer is more popular than ever right now in America. This wouldn’t have been as big a deal even 10 years ago.

    • Matt_Indeed

      It’s still not a big deal to me now.

      And as we all know, if it doesn’t matter to me, then everyone else should fall in line, ya know?

  • Devin Harris

    Most parents don’t let their kids play soccer cause it’s the worst sport to give up your Saturday morning for.

    • We talk about football and concussions, but I had a bunch of friends in high school who got concussions playing soccer, too. Those guys played way too hard.

      • Devin Harris

        Honestly, I don’t know why we don’t push our kids into more individual sports. I think that’s what I’ll do if I have another one. No team sports for you pal! It’s all about tennis, golf and equestrian

        • Track and field and cross country seems to be the way to go for me

          • Devin Harris

            You don’t even have to show up to the cross country meets. It’s fantastic.

    • Miko363

      My kids will never ever play hockey. I can go to 9am soccer practice. Getting to the rink for 5am? Fuck that.

  • The Professor

    Btw usa’s best player is like 5’8 and 140lbs

  • Matt_Indeed

    If my kid wants to play sports, that’s fine, but I’d rather her be involved in the arts. It’s less concussion-y.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      Sports build character.

      • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

        …..there are other ways to build character.

      • Matt_Indeed

        So does everything else that’s hard and learned.

    • The Silver Fox

      No concussions, but two surgeries are the legacy of my daughter’s participation in sports.

    • Devin Harris

      I’m with you. I won’t ban my kid from playing but I’d rather he not playing anything. Not because of injuries but because that means I’ll have to be involved.

      • Matt_Indeed

        I’m actually really looking forward to shit like dance recitals or plays.

        • Devin Harris

          those things aren’t as time consuming on a parent. Football practice is everyday almost and games once a week. Recital or play is once every few months if that.

  • Devin Harris

    My stepson plays football. He’s 7. It’s stupid. They got them all dressed up in fancy uniforms and those stupid gloves you put together to make animals and stuff. I’m like this is where we are dumping all of our money. *sigh*

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    The one soccer fan I know is PISSED that us fat, out of shape slobs are criticizing soccer, something we know nothing about

    • DAJackson7

      They laid the fucking golden goose yesterday for sure. Hopefully this means they will clean the whole house out now and start fresh

    • Matt_Indeed

      I’m okay with not knowing anything about that boring, lame game.

    • Devin Harris

      I cared about soccer in 1994. That was the apex of US soccer. Then there was Freddy Adu. Then there was not Freddy Adu.

      • DAJackson7

        Pulisic is way better than Freddy Adu, this kid is great

        • Devin Harris

          I meant that Adu was pumped up as the next Pele and a lot of people bought into it. Then nothing. I’m not even sure if the guy is still playing soccer

          • DAJackson7

            Nope

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Good things about soccer:

    – No commercials outside of halftime
    – Women soccer players are IN SHAPE, thicc thighs, etc

    • DAJackson7

      A bad thing—-like most women’s sports the athletes are gay,
      Another good thing-FIFA is a fun ass game, soccer is a great video game

    • Facts

      European Woman Soccer players are nice

  • Facts

    I think Soccer is dumb.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Here, here!

  • Facts

    Kick a ball without hands. Boo

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    I have a temperature of 100 F. So that’s nice.

  • Hello all…. I like soccer.. I wish my country didn’t suck at it.

    • Matt_Indeed

      You don’t like ‘Murica, you can GEEEEEEET OUT!

    • DAJackson7

      True this

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Eminem…..welcome to the #resistance

  • Matt_Indeed

    I just hit 42,000 comments! 2 of which were clever.

  • TatR!

    All this soccer bashing smh. I’m leaving forever. you can catch me on AOL IM, my username is TATR_TATR_TATR2.

    • Matt_Indeed

      That’s a long screen name.

  • Mikey

    Hamstring is still bad so did the Elliptical for an hour instead today. Felt good.

    • The Professor

      I could never get into elliptical running. Feels too weird

      • Mikey

        It’s certainly different. I get a really good sweat out of it though so I”m happy.

    • Matt_Indeed

      “I’m so hurt, but I’ll still do better exercising than most people!”

      You asshole.

      *eats banana*

      • Mikey

        The elliptical can be pretty awesome. And you can multitask like check your phone and shit while doing it. Hard to do that while running.

        • TatR!

          Check your phone! But don’t you need to keep your hands on the hand things

  • The Professor

    Better simpsons strike episode: power plant is on strike or teachers are on strike?

  • DAJackson7

    If you believe some fools, this is the last time we will bad at soccer since this is prime time of the lost years kids who were trained before the youth system was overhauled……i kind of doubt that. I think soccer is a lot like baseball where a lot of kids are missing because travel teams and all that expense is excluding them. I know…..people trying to make money getting in the way of just making something in this country better? SHOCKING!!!

    • Matt_Indeed

      I would be perfectly okay with this country never being good at soccer.

      • DAJackson7

        I would rather be good at soccer than hear about football every damn day on ESPN when i’m skimming channels on tv or radio

      • Comdukakis

        does it effect your day to day life? nope. But much like the olympics it also doesn’t hurt anyone to be good at non-traditional sports and would be nice

    • Devin Harris

      They took something that was working with baseball and broke it. Soccer has always been broken

  • Louie

    Our best athletes do not play soccer because it pays significantly less than baseball, basketball and football. It’s a B sport that only certain regions dedicate resources to, just like hockey.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Thank you for that rundown.

    • Comdukakis

      actually it doesn’t pay less if you are good enough to be in the right leagues. Top stars make more. The problem is the rank and file make less

    • DAJackson7

      We have good enough athletes actually…it’s tactics and skill anymore that we lack in.

      • Comdukakis

        I don’t know. when american soccer started it’s rise with that first world cup qualifying in 86 we were strong in the back (always seem to have solid goaltending) but lacked creativity to score outside of set pieces. As time went on now the back end has been a disaster for several years. We’ve increased creativity with guys like Dempsey, Donovan, and now Pulsic but we continue to be incapable of building an attack from the back end. Most attacks are counterattacks. Rarely if ever do you see the US build up from the back end with sharp passing and probing passes up and down the sides. It’s almost always quick strikes.

        The mark of a truly skilled team is being able to keep possession and control the game with passing and movement. We have not had that in the 30 plus years I’ve watched US soccer. It’s why I can’t watch MLS. The passing is not crisp.

        • DAJackson7

          Very very true, i would say the only reason we were recent for a few years lately was Tim Howard saving our ass and Donovan getting that quick strike goal against England…..they never do run a set to get a goal, it’a always off a rebound a rival goalkeeper misplayed

  • The Professor

    I can’t wait until day light savings time ends. Running in the dark at 6am just feels wrong

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost
  • Devin Harris

    Once again I just encountered a teacher that is scared to death of new technology. I don’t get it. You are in the learning business but you don’t want to learn. Where dey do dat at?

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

      What does she teach?

      • Devin Harris

        He and math

      • Miko363

        Apparently, she teaches hiding under her desk until that pension kicks in.

    • Comdukakis

      new technology is scary

      • Devin Harris

        but it shouldn’t be to educators. imho

    • TatR!

      uh yeah this should go with the above comment

  • “After 27 years of doubts about rap I am now a fan.”

    Jesus Christ, shut the fuck up Keith Olbermann.

    • TatR!

      i presume if the alt-right nazis turned on trump olbermann would also become an alt-right nazi

  • Facts

    Soccer should allow tackling and tripping. No seriously.

    • Miko363

      The German national team should be allowed to use German suplexes.

  • Comdukakis

    Soccer is a weird thing. Maybe I’m not thinking of other examples but it’s the one thing that I always see others feel the need to chime in and tell us how much it sucks. And? I don’t like Bulgarian folk dancing so I don’t watch it or talk about it.

    I guess wrestling might be similar sometimes with the “you know it’s fake” types.

    • TatR!

      ain’t that the truth

      • so the thing that crawled into (I presume) Sarah Palmer’s mouth…good or bad?

        • TatR!

          oh that’s bob isn’t it

          • OK.. I didn’t know if that was what the Fireman sent to earth or Judy

          • TatR!

            I think thats the first instance of the evil getting inside someone

          • makes sense now that I think about it. what with her moms scream being the trigger…interesting. Now I look at mom a whole different way for the run of the show….Thanks
            We will see what tomorrows Twin Peaks question for TatR! brings

          • TatR!

            that scene where Laura’s mom is attacking that picture and yet it’s not really breaking, there’s a lot in there. she’s clearly possessed by the Judy spirit like in that scene in the bar but it’s never fully laid out

          • yeah I’m seeing that

          • TatR!

            I can’t really get my head around exactly why Laura’s moms voice rings out at the very end triggering Laura though. I still don’t quite get what that means, whether it is just the universe letting them know that yes you are lost and no none of you can be saved

          • I figured it took a moment but being there at the house was enough to break open her subconscious enough that the other Laura time line memories came flooding back

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I think it’s more of an Old World bias more than anything. There’s been a cultural Cold War going on for awhile now.

      • Comdukakis

        I don’t get that though. I grew up being into all kinds of stuff. I mean I watch tennis and volleyball sometimes, plus the big 5 sports. But I never cared if someone watched Nascar or golf even though I found those boring.

  • Facts

    Please watch…………….but not on a work computer.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Nah.

    • Vince: HUNTER GET IN HERE!!! I FOUND THE NEW DIRECTION FOR OUR COMPANY!!!

      • Facts

        Vince watches this all the time.

  • Mikey

    Who do you think win the games tonight?

    • DAJackson7

      I just hope the Nats and Indians win

  • Miko363

    Whether you like soccer or not, it is pretty shocking that the best 11 soccer players in the country can’t beat Trinidad and Tobago, with a total population of 1.5 million people, with the World Cup spot on the line.

    • Comdukakis

      it’s more than shocking, it’s devastating to the program and unacceptable. Truth be told I think part of the issue is the shitty professional league we have where players aren’t playing against top competition and getting better, being challenged. A few guys play in the EPL, Bundeligsa, etc. but most are in MLS being complacent

      • Miko363

        MLS gets the guys who already peaked and made their money overseas and want to move home to finish up their careers.

        It’s rosters of Nakamuras, except for the whole moving home part.

        • Comdukakis

          not always. You have guys in our back end and in the midfield playing in MLS too.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Is it, though? Soccer is literally part of the culture there, with people basically playing every day straight out of the womb, without the creature comforts and luxuries that we take for granted here. Soccer is a way of life there, here it’s an expensive hobby for suburbanites.

      • Comdukakis

        they had 8 losses and one tie in the qualifying before last night. They haven’t ever made the world cup. it was shocking. Remember these US players do the same thing.

        • Miko363

          Yep, they were getting crushed by the other countries in the pool. This isn’t some soccer powerhouse.

  • Facts

    *tries to give wife encouraging advice yesterday after her stressful day at work*

    *gets told I am hammering her with cliches*

    *starts pushing her buttons to piss her off even more*

    Ahh marriage.

    • Comdukakis

      my wife is miserable at work since the bank takeover and has six weeks to make it through before she goes to a new bank (old boss is building a new RV/boat loan program from the ground up) In the meantime I just have to listen to horror stories while wanting to go stab them all

      • Facts

        You should go stab them.

        • Comdukakis

          trust me i wish I could. i miss the old days. challenge them to a duel and then smite them

          • Facts

            *takes off glove and slaps them*

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Is she going to demand that MFAR be banned?

      • Facts

        >:(

  • Miko363

    Red Sox just made the move – Farrell is gone at long last.

    • DAJackson7

      Should have traded him for Mike Matheny….mainly cause i no longer want Matheny

  • Devin Harris

    No one ever came to my hood to recruit soccer players. Maybe, just maybe US Soccer needs to take a page out of basketball and football coaches playbook by pretending to care about black boys so they can help them win games? Just a thought

    • Miko363

      It’s inexpensive, too. Just need a field, balls and cleats.

    • Comdukakis

      if its’ anything like the basketball nets, ya’ll steal them

      • Devin Harris

        It’s there anything in sports more annoying than playing on a hoop without a net? Might as well play imaginary basketball then

        • TatR!

          football is the easiest sport to play really in terms of equipment, thats why its all kids do on the streets of Brazil and other classically awesome countries. All you need is a ball and something to mark goals with, you don’t even need a hoop or a net

          • Devin Harris

            We do the same thing with basketball. Once you get a ball you can make a hoop. We used milk crates, rims from bicycles, whatever. If you want to play you will figure it out

          • TatR!

            yeah that’s pretty cool. It’d take quite the generational shift though I guess to get people to move away from basketball to soccer on the streets.

          • Devin Harris

            I agree. Without a huge emphasis on growing the game in all parts of the country it’ll never be more than a niche thing over here

        • Comdukakis

          we used to buy nets and come put them up. one of the guys who played at the park I played at a bunch had a ladder in the back of his truck from work and we’d just put up a net. god knows the parks dept wouldn’t do it

          worst though was the double rims. those KILLED your shot. You learned to swish stuff on those because you weren’t getting a kind bounce

          • Devin Harris

            Lots of fights started because of playing without a net. Sometimes it was really hard to tell if the shot went in or not. Emotions run high and no one wants to concede so it would almost be on

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          It’s true..but you still shouldn’t say it!

  • Facts

    Why don’t more female executives lather up in baby oil and fight their competition in a pool of baby oil?

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      That’s what Harvey Weinstein was trying to get started!

      • Facts

        FEMALE EMPOWERMENT!

  • Louie

    Yay! My boss is buying me a donut for ethering another department in an e-mail.

  • RudoWakening

    Another morning of a super late start due to a super long meeting

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost
  • Mikey

    They put in double rims at one of the parks I played at as a kid and those were fucking terrible. Most unforgiving hoops and basically had to had a perfect swish for the ball to go in.

    • Devin Harris

      Which made you work harder on your shot. If you wanted to get better. I hate them too but they had their upside

      • Comdukakis

        keeping guys from pulling down the rims?

        • Devin Harris

          Yeah and you had to really work on your shot cause it wasn’t normal to get the bounce

  • Mikey

    What did Eminem do now?

    • Devin Harris

      Invent rap

    • Matt_Indeed

      He did a freestyle on Trump, I guess?

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Did any cool countries make the World Cup?

    • Comdukakis

      all the ones that would never let you in….so yes

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    My point was that even mediocre teams will have the edge over the US because soccer is a religion in those countries and there’s money and resources dedicated to its proliferation. Here, most folks can’t be bothered to care, and the government isn’t interested in getting involved, so it’s up to a dedicated few and that clearly isn’t enough to even catch up let alone succeed.

    • Devin Harris

      The NBA itself set out to make the NBA global. In the 25 years since the Dream Team the gap is almost closed if not closed completely. Thing is there is no incentive for anyone to make soccer a thing in this country.

  • DAJackson7

    Hahaha, Brad Pitt promised Harvey Weinstein a “Missouri Whooping” when he fucked with Paltrow……he can leave this state, but it won’t leave him i guess

    • Matt_Indeed

      I guess my question is….why are we just now hearing about it? You would think TMZ or someone would have gotten that story long ago. Or maybe Pitt would make it public that this asshole was sleazy to his girlfriend. Just weird how absolutely isolated and secretive hollywood is until something is way out in the open.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        FOX News is claiming collusion between Hollywood power brokers, the mainstream media and the Dems.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Of course they are.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            In this case, maybe they have a point?

          • Matt_Indeed

            Maybe. Who knows.

          • Comdukakis

            a point but the same point that could be made about corporations for generations when it comes to sexual harassment, abuse of employees, collusion, etc.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    I liked it when professional music critics agreed with middle school bullies that “Stan” was a lyrical masterpiece.

  • Matt_Indeed
    • Facts

      They did well in the preseason.

      • Matt_Indeed

        That’s like doing well on your pre-SATs.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Kevin Hogan is the 28th starting QB for the Browns since 1999.

    28th in 18 years.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    It’s surprising that Trump isn’t all over this Weinstein thing with the tweets.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Probably was in the shower with Harvey a couple times.

    • Comdukakis

      why? he engaged in the same behavior.

      I mean I get that “hollywood liberal” part of it, but I don’t think even Trump wants to get in a pissing match over sexual harassment

  • Facts

    I really think the Cleveland Browns play on a sacred Indian burial ground that was cursed like 33 times by the most evil Cleveland gypsy ever.

    • Matt_Indeed

      That’s the only explanation, really.

      • Facts

        OR it could be that they suck all around from the Owner to the 3rd string player.

  • Mikey

    It is indeed time for the Browns to get OUT of Cleveland immediately!!!

    • Matt_Indeed

      We need a completely new franchise, I think. Start from scratch.

      New owner, new everything. The stadium is fine. Just name it something else.

      • Facts

        Cleveland Steamers! owned by yours truly

  • Facts

    They should be called the Cleveland Steamers.

    • Matt_Indeed

      They could even keep the brown jerseys with that name.

  • Facts
  • Matt_Indeed

    And we passed on Deshaun Watson.

    LOLBrowns

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Move the Browns to the Austin/San Antonio market!

    • Matt_Indeed

      You want them? You can have them.

    • Mikey

      Take ’em!

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Haven’t they won only three games over the last three seasons?

    • Matt_Indeed

      1 game in 2016
      3 games in 2015
      7 games in 2014 (considered a successful season by Browns standards)
      4 games in ’13
      5 games in ’12
      4 games in ’11
      5 games in ’10
      5 games in ’09
      4 games in ’08
      10 games in ’07! (Miracle! Still missed playoffs)
      4 games in ’06
      6 games in ’05
      4 games in ’04
      5 games in ’03
      9 games in ’02 (the only time that we made the playoffs since the new franchise started in 99)

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        So four games!

        • Matt_Indeed

          Yes.
          0-5 this year too. So the Browns are 4-33 in the last 37 games.

  • Facts

    Move the Browns to Idaho and rename them the Potatoes.

  • Comdukakis

    i’m starting to get the feeling the NFL owners reacted without thinking to Trump’s remarks a
    a couple weeks back and have slowly been reigned in by other prominent rich republicans across the nation leading to the ultimate position of “N—-r stand or get released” Congrats NFL for reunifying white rich guys and white trash racists alike

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      It’s funny because the kneeling got big in order to show UNITY against Trump, but here we are completely divided again

      • Comdukakis

        oh no, now it’s all about “team unity” rather than protest. For example a division 3 football player just got kicked off the team for kneeling because “the council of 24 coaches and players voted to kneel before the coin toss and stand for the anthem.” What the fuck kind of protest is that? Protesting heads vs. tails? They are trying to neuter the players with “team unity’

        • Comdukakis

          it gets better. they were told their would be consequences if they protested so the players “agreed” to kneel during the coin toss.

    • Here’s where the principles of the protest get tested. How serious are these players? If they decide to stay united and actually walk out, and call the League’s bluff, they may be able to make a salient point.

      If everything goes back to normal, well… what the hell was the point?

      • Comdukakis

        fair point but i also shows just how ridiculous and touchy white america is. If blacks so much as scratch a light pole, they are rioting. But when one protests peacefully and silently they are wrong too. Basically stop being black

        • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

          Rapists and wife beaters are allowed,but god forbid someone protests police treating black people like animals.

        • Of course white America is touchy and thin skinned. Been that way throughout this nation’s history and it’s only gotten worse. But this is when you have to double down and say, “hey, look, we have a legit beef and you should listen to us.”

          Holding a sustained movement and pushing forward in the face of diversity is the only way this works. Shrugging it off and going back to normal just makes it seem like they were just doing what was trendy and not what they thought was right.

          • Comdukakis

            absolutely. and I would argue this locking arms thing instead of kneeling is already shrugging it off and going back to normal. It is exactly what the comfortable middle (and right wing but for different reasons) want out of football and blacks. They want them to not make waves, not talk and pretend that football brings us together because Tom Brady can throw the ball to Randy Moss

      • But again… tell me… what are most of these players protesting? WHY are they kneeling? Clearly the President and most of the people complaining don’t understand it. Do the players? Given the media attacks from the right, I’m not sure I know what the protests are for…

        • Comdukakis

          I understand it because I read. the media doesn’t try to report why.

          • So explain it to me.

            I know why Kaepernick was kneeling. I get his reasoning. I know the same way you do, through reading it in the media. What are the NFL players protesting now?

          • Comdukakis

            before Trump they were protesting police treatment of people of color. Post Trump some still are, some protested Trump for calling nazis “good people” and NFL players (some of whom are people of color) sons of bitches for protesting. Those issues to me are one and the same. Disparate treatment and a complete lack of understanding from white america that racism is not dead and is in fact ingrained in our society on a daily basis

          • See, to me, once the protest expanded after the “sons of bitches” comment, it stopped being about the police treatment of people of color and became more about a show of support for their own, and it’s completely diluted the effect. And I’m really not sure that most of the people kneeling are on the same page about what they’re kneeling for.

            These guys have a HUUUUGE outlet to get a message across, and I think they’ve failed in that aspect. I think Lebron is doing it right. He’s been exceptionally eloquent during this whole thing.

        • Matt_Indeed

          That’s the major problem with the kneeling. No one is coming out loudly and TALKING about what they want from the protesting. They just kneel and that’s that. That’s not enough to get white America to understand you and try to cooperate in reforming things. You kneeling only pisses off the people that can make things better.

          • Right, instead of using the giant soap box they have, and trying to educate – which is what is needed – they chose a visual which is open to interpretation, which means it’s also open to corruption.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Open to just pissing people off and letting Fox News and whoever else decide the narrative.

            YOU have to form the narrative.

          • The left has unfortunately been letting Fox News and their ilk form the narrative for about two decades, and I think a lot of it comes from the liberal snobbery that turns so many people off. Instead of creating a movement of their own and convincing people they’re right, the general Democratic response has become, “ugh, those guys are the worst.”

            And it led to a presidential candidate whose whole campaign was based around that idea, which led to Donald Trump as president.

            Welcome to the machine…

          • Matt_Indeed

            100% this.

          • This is entirely correct. The liberal attitude of “ugh, this is so stupid I won’t even address it, can you believe how stupid that is?” fails because not everyone feels that way, and someone with a message will always sway more undecided folk than will a non-message, we’re above this attitude.

          • And it’s aided by a secondary attitude of just wanting to be able to say they’re right, instead of convincing people of WHY they’re right.

          • Comdukakis

            Not to mention mainstream media following Fox gets ratings. Deficit didn’t matter during dubbya but once Obama arrived Fox cheerleaders it as the issue of our times. Suddenly mainstream media is all over it. Fox is the tail that wags the dog. They create the story, often false, and the MSM follows

  • Comdukakis

    i’m so fucking tired of this bullshit of kneeling before the anthem, locking arms, etc. and calling it about “team unity.” It’s covering up the real issue which is the disparate treatment of blacks in this country, particularly by law enforcement. It’s turning a fierce way of protesting into kumbya shit that the white media can get behind

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

      That’s pretty much what you call white privilege. It was never about Trump,but that’s what it will be remembered for.

    • I lost my shit when Jerry Jones and the Cowboys did that knee before the anthem, because they wanted to use the image in the paper in a positive light. Thankfully, I was able to convince them how stupid that was…

  • The 2009 Detroit Lions were 2-14 the season after going 0-16. 2 years later they were 11-5 and made the playoffs. Now they’re a perfectly legitimate team that contends most years after years of double digit losses every year. Never lose hope!

    • Comdukakis

      when Cleveland gets a Matt Stafford and a Calvin Johnson and a Suh they can hope too.

    • Matt_Indeed

      We have never had anyone remotely as good as the current Lions personnel.

      • Comdukakis

        and for all of Jim Schwarz’s faults (and there are many, guy is a grade A asshole) he could motivate and get the best out of his guys. He does a great “us and against the world” thing which of course only gets you so far and results in a rep as the dirtiest team in the league, but it does get you so far.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Still 100 F. Turn up the heat,baby!

    laughable that Omar Gonzalez is calling last night’s loss the worst day of his life. Well yeah it’s because you suck and have been the biggest problem with the US defense for years.

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

      Why was Bruce Arena hired again?

      • Comdukakis

        because Klinsman didn’t take Landon Donovan to world cup

    • DAJackson7

      He had no business starting in the first place

      • Comdukakis

        not that Cameron or the rest are great but game after game Gonzalez is awful

  • Comdukakis

    Perhaps the biggest problem of all was that the U.S. struggled to break down teams that were content to sit back and soak up pressure. It happened against Costa Rica and it happened for much of the game against T&T. To be fair, this is something that the U.S. has grappled with for decades. Yet previous U.S. teams always managed to do enough. Many of those teams had Landon Donovan, or a younger version of Clint Dempsey, players who could pull off a special play.

    • DAJackson7

      Or a Michael Bradley that didn’t suck, or a Tim Howard that was ten years younger

      • Comdukakis

        Howard wasn’t the problem. Bradley for whatever reason (i’m thinking mostly marching orders) lacks ANY aggressiveness at all. Just always the safest play possible, with 75% of his passes backwards. Nothing creative, which at one time he was capable of

    I don’t think I would kneel if I were an NFL player. Also, guys like me never make it that far because we burn our bridges in high school. I got kicked off my football team for throwing a book at my math teacher. I suspected one of his fashion choices was wearing white after Labor Day

      • Matt_Indeed

        I’m kind of surprised he didn’t throw the entire library at the teacher.

      • Devin Harris

        I sat in the back and didn’t bother anyone. This guy would needle me everyday. One day I had enough. I stood up and said “f—- you” and threw my book at him. Then walked out of the class.

        • This is where I would throw in a Ron Simmons *DAMN* gif if I could be bothered.

          • Devin Harris

            I’m pretty sure I would kick Jerry Jones’ ass if I were a Cowboy. Especially, if I thought I was at the end of my career. It would be worth it

          • He has the kind of money to make you disappear.

          • Devin Harris

            Of course which is why this country operates the way it does and why he operates the way he does

          • It ain’t limited to this country. Shit like that happened loooooong before the US was founded. And besides, you’re the one that instigated the conflict in this instance. What’d Jerry do to you, besides pay you well? Your response is to kick is ass? Well, you wanna go to war, don’t do it with someone who has access to superior firepower.

          • Devin Harris

            Since it’s been around that means it should stay around?

            The way a person sees Jerry Jones now will always be how they see him so discussing it is a moot point.

            Going to war seems a better alternative than continuing to live in a world where we are scared of standing up for ourselves.

          • I didn’t say it should stay around. I was saying it’s not limited to this country.

            Jerry can do any number of things to change his image, one way or the other.

            Kicking someone’s ass accomplishes nothing in the grand scheme of things. Change them by legal means, or ACTUALLY go to war.

          • Devin Harris

            Saying it’s not limited to this country means what? That it’s normal or okay?

            I think after these past few weeks we all know where Jerry stands on things. Jerry can throw some money around to boost his public image, but he’s revealed his true self. Some will take him for who he is and others will not

            In the grand scheme of things it would mean nothing but my own personal satisfaction. Legality means nothing which is why people are kneeling in the first place. Going to war? hmmm……..

          • Dwayne

            Jerry is like any rich old boss who talks a good game to the public but doesn’t give a fuck about the people under him or what they care about.

          • Saying that it isn’t limited to this country means exactly that. You said “Of course which is why this country operates the way it does and why he operates the way he does” I was saying it’s not just this country. It’s pretty much the world. Normal? Yes. Ok? Depends on your perspective. I’d go with a no, in terms of he has the gold makes the rules, but no one’s asking me.

            I don’t care about Jerry Jones. At all. I’m no longer watching football; haven’t watched the last…oh, 3 seasons? Except for the playoffs and the Super Bowl, and last year was just the Super Bowl. This year I may not even bother with that.

            Kneeling isn’t illegal, though it may be against NFL policy. That’s different from beating the shit out of someone. And for the record, freedom of expression/speech doesn’t prevent you from the repercussions of your actions. It protects you from prosecution. No employer will keep any employee that is more trouble than they’re worth to the business, for whatever reason.

    • I never threw anything at a teacher, but I did participate in driving 2 of them into madness. One of them ripped a clock off the wall and hurled it across the room!

She retired the next year and blamed it on us. Good times
        Another shop teacher threw a wrench at us, like a pipe wrench too, not a small one. He apologized the next day, and we didn’t say anything. but he quit after that year. i could on and on

            Christ it really all is an episode of Monty Python isn’t it

        • We once were shown an apartment that we loved. High ceilings, courtyard, lots of space. We said we’d take it on the spot. Had the money ready, everything. And the woman showing it to us said she had already promised it to someone else.

          I nearly kicked her in the head.

          • TatR!

            That is incredibly annoying

          • I even upped the offer a bit. She said that would be impolite to take it away from the other couple. THEN WHY SHOW IT TO US!?!?!!

  • Anal Sex can be a factor in Anal Cancer: Having multiple sex partners due to the increased risk of exposure to HPV. Receptive anal intercourse, whether male or female, increases the chances of anal cancer sevenfold due to HPV.

      I learned people can get Anal cancer from Anal sex today…….i’ll just stay at the Geekery

      • Matt_Indeed

        We teach useful facts here.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Remember when Obama was President and the front page was just Mitch McConnell turtlin’ it up?

      • Marv

        I miss the good old days when the worst our President could do was utterly embarrass the entire Boy Scouts organization by talking about fingerblasting broads at the national cook out.

        • Matt_Indeed

          That was just 3 months ago.

  • Louie

    I think some team should start a game by doing a victory formation on the first play in solidarity with those kneeling on the sidelines during the anthem.

    • Marv

      I was such a self-destructive cunt at the age these players are I have no doubt I’d be that white dope that threw his whole career away because he just started kneeling allllll the time just to annoy people on the twitter.

    • DAJackson7

      Is that what they do?

  • Louie

    I kind of want to watch the Family Guy episode where they brutally make fun of improv again.

    That “And” joke, man. Lol

    • TatR!

      I like improv shows because I like when there’s more people on stage than in the audience

      • TatR!

        holy shit the improv guy on the chip chipperson show, just the absolute worst

        I feel s bad for that half as many people though, so bad.

          I feel s bad for that half as many people though, so bad AND

    • Rowlf

      I always think of that episode whenever improv gets brought up here.

      “I’m John Wayne at the first Thanksgiving, pilgrims! Happy Thanksgiving, pilgrims!”
      “….Okay, this is something that should never have been attempted. Good night, everybody.”

      James Lipton: “IMPROV!”

      • Marv

        And that’s funny because someone bothered to sit down and write it and put effort into it…unlike improv

  • Marv

    It’s going to be super fun in like 10 years when we all sit around tables drinking wine and stuff and playing “Thing I Just Made Up or Something Trump Actually Did”

    • Matt_Indeed

      Now will he still be President after that amendment is thrown out so he can go for a 3rd term?

      • Marv

        I really don’t think he physically makes it through the first. With that kind of ego and obsession about the way people are talking about him he can’t be getting any kind of decent sleep or relaxation of any kind at all. We’re going to see that job age someone in a whole new way I think.

        • TatR!

          so the powers that be are poisoning him huh

          • Marv

            He’s being poisoned by his own head. And god knows that guy is not exercising.

          • DAJackson7

            Hmmm, well Pence is no better, then we have to get rid of about ten more…..then it will be fine

          • Marv

            Honestly though, Pence is better. It’s fun to say he’s insane too, and he kind of is, but he’s a palatable insane. He’s an insane that we’re used to at least.

          • Miko363

            Pence is a nightmare, but yeah he stays within the framework of politics so legislators can just block the religious insanity he tries to push through.

        • Matt_Indeed

          But I think you have to actually feel responsible for things to age like that.

          • Marv

            That’s why I think it will be different. It will be all self-inflicted.

        • Miko363

          I don’t trust anyone who sleeps less than 4 hours a night. With that sleep schedule and his apparently terrible diet, I’m honestly stunned he didn’t die of a heart attack years ago.

          • Marv

            That’s the thing! Like imagine your most stressful night ever, whatever the problem was but one of those nights where you just toss and turn and sweat and can’t get out of the loop in your head.

            That’s every single night for this guy lol

          • TatR!

            idk I mean maybe he just sits around watching tv while his advisors do everything. Reagan just sat with his stupid TV tray in front of old movies while everyone did work. He lived to like 120

          • Marv

            I’m not suggesting he’s stressing the job. No he’s stressing what Anchor X said about him on the Omaha nightly news.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Improv is definitely the worst, yes.

    • TatR!

      I guess it’s good for building confidence

      • Matt_Indeed

        Confidence in not being funny.

    Coming this summer: Two brothers. In a van. And then a meteor hit. And they ran as fast as they could.

    From giant cat monsters. And then a giant tornado came. And that’s when things got knocked into 12th gear.

    A Mexican armada shows up. With weapons made from Two–tomatoes. And you better bet your bottom dollar that these two brothers know how to handle business.

    In: Alien Invasion Tomato Monster Mexican Armada Brothers, Who Are Just Regular Brothers, Running In a van from an Asteroid and All Sorts of Things THE MOVIE!

    Hold on, there’s more!

    Old women are coming, and they’re also in the movie, and they’re gonna come, and cross attack these two brothers. But let’s get back to the brothers, because they’re– they have a strong bond. You don’t want to know about it here, but I’ll tell you one thing: The moon it comes crashing into Earth. And what do you do then?

    It’s two brothers and–and th-they’re It’s called Two brothers. Two brothers! It’s just called Two Brothers.

      during my portly days I would have ham, mozzarella and waffle sandwiches, smothered in tomato sauce. I think it was like a 700 calorie sandwich

    My favorite pizza I’ve ever had was in Nelson, BC after a horrible camping trip with my dad that my brother got to skip. It got way colder than we were expecting for the season and the fish weren’t biting and it was just the worst camping trip I think I ever went on as a child. After two days we came down the mountain and had pizza at this random mom and pop place and it was the greatest. Decades later my dad and I still talked about that pizza and how horrible that trip was lol

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      For pizza mine was this weird chicken pizza but instead of the usual sauce it had this taco sauce on it and it was just amazing.

    • My favourite pizza is the place that I grew up next to. Family owned, and the very best sauce.

      Once when I was a kid my dog bit the owner, and he attacked myself and the dog with a stick. After that he gave my family a free pizza.

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    Grilled Cheese and a bowl of Tomato Soup is one of my favorite combos. Dipping the grilled cheese in the soup is the best.

    Will the Dodgers stomping out the D-Backs put to rest this “hot at the right time” nonsense? I think 162 games is a good enough sample size to point out who is good and who isn’t.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      2007 rockies would disagree. As would all the wild card teams that have won the series.

    • I mean that huge of a losing streak was something to be concerned about. There is some truth to hot at the right time. A team can gel at different times of a season and or fall apart

      • Devin Harris

        In a 162 game season there are going to be lulls. 15 games? Probably not that many but I think the body of work speaks more to who you are than a streak here and there

  • Marv

    Wife and I decided to dip back into the Brooklyn 99 starting with season four which we’ve seen none of. It’s gotta be the funniest show on TV. Andre Braugher is like Top 10 comedic actor.

    • I’ve gotta catch up with that. I’ve loved everything I’ve seen.

      • Marv

        It’s one of those weird shows that is really easy to fall out of despite, like you, enjoying every bit of it I’ve ever seen. I guess the trade off is so much more funny but less of a connective thread through the show that makes catching the next episode so important. I can turn off 99 for like a year and just kind of forget about it, it’s weird.

        • Yeah, Dinah and I were binging it for a while and then just stopped and we never picked it back up. And every couple of months, one of us would say, “We should pick Brooklyn 99 back up.”

          She probably watched it without me at this point.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      Season 4 was so great. Season 5 is starting up now and it has maintained its quality. Totally agree on Braugher. In the most recent episode they do a bit about squatting and somehow it’s hilarious.

      • Marv

        His stuff with the old lady walking group to start of season four has us in tears, “I impregnated a woman. You know me, when I see a pair of weighty breasts I just go crazy.” Jesus lol

        • Macklin JeriPratt

          He is head and shoulders the funniest part of the show which is nuts because everybody is so strong on the show. You’d think it would be closer but he’s just THAT good.

        • Macklin JeriPratt

          I still think my favorite joke on the show is when Holt comes in with his sprained wrist and tells Jake he did it hoolahooping and then shows him pictures of Holt hoolahooping before deleting them and telling Jake that no one would ever believe him.

          • Marv

            Yeah there’s a similar bit in these first two episodes about Holt having a tattoo that Jake will never get to see.

    • I keep hearing I should give the show a try

      • RudoWakening

        I hear the same thing but I just fucking hate Andy Samberg

        • Oh dude, I did, too. But he’s so good on this show.

          • RudoWakening

            It *DOES* star Joe Lo Truglio as well and he’s fantastic always and forever amen.

        • Macklin JeriPratt

        HE DRUGGED AND RAPED A LITTLE GIRL…
        it’s not even a statutory thing or anything you could rationalize in the farthest depths of your mind. I’ve only watched stuff he made before it.

        • And people openly say, “Awww, just let it go. He’s great.” I frequently find myself losing respect for people. Like, even if you think he’s innocent… dude skipped out on everything – innocent people don’t do that.

    Radio Days is the most recent Woody Allen movie I’ve seen. I think I’ve only seen two or three others.

  • The Silver Fox

    Remember Woody Allen in Casino Royale?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Yes.

    • never seen that one

      • The Silver Fox

        You’re not missing much, despite having Allen, David Niven, Peter Sellers and Orson Welles in it. Maybe you need some LSD to understand it.

  • instead of talking about sexual deviants… lets talk about how great The National the band not that “baseball” team is

    • No one is talking about my Supergirl recap and the inaugural power rankings…

      🙁

      • I haven’t watched Supergirl yet

      • but you do have a comment

      • ProjectBlue

        Agree on hoping the dourness is out of their system and they give at least a couple cute eps before the next drama

      • Dwayne

        I’m still on Season 1

  • having never really listened to a lot more than the hits I’ve enjoyed listening to a lot of Tom Petty the past week or so. Pretty much everything is very listenable

    • Dwayne

      I might try some more of his music. I know Free Fallin the best.

      • if you don’t know much I’d go his greatest hits first. it’s from like…93 I think. I spent much of my teens listneing

    • ProjectBlue

      Fucker did a song for the Entourage soundtrack. AND IT’S GOOD.

  • RudoWakening

    I’ve been asked lately to step up and take a bit more charge at work. I may adumbrate to my supervisor contact my company and suggest they give me a raise.

  • The Silver Fox

    Best thing about the 1967 version of Casino Royale is the theme by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. The rest of the film is pretty awful (6 different directors will do that).

    • Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass is the best thing involving…anything with Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass

  • Stranger In the Alps

    New episode of the podcast up. Pumpkinhead and Scarecrows talk.

    http://www.retromovienerd.com/2017/10/go-home-in-box-episode-24.html

    • I’ve gotta work out some podcast stuff.

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Hit me up anytime for pointers or advice. I’m about 25 shows into this thing.

        • How is this the first I’m hearing of this?

          • Stranger In the Alps

            I don’t know. I’ve been doing every week since May, with a couple breaks here and there.

            Here are some more.

            https://ptbnpop.podbean.com/category/go-home-in-a-box/

          • I’m confused, which is nothing new.

            I listen to podcasts on my phone using the Podcast Addict app. When I search for “Go Home in a Box” I get episodes by that name, but no podcasts. It looks like you’re part of POTB, but don’t have your own thing? Like a sub podcast?

            Not finding fault; just clarifying.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            No, you’re right. We’re under the PTBN POP umbrella. That’s where they put their non-wrestling shows. So search for Place to Be Nation on iTunes .

          • That shows up on podcast addict. I don’t use iTunes at all cause Android phone.

            Hell, I even use Amazon music on my Mac.

          • Will listen to an episode tomorrow.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            I recommend the newest one first. We used to talk about a bunch of movies under one similar topic, but now we’ve streamlined and discuss two movies with similar elements, as well as a new stuff on dvd/blu-ray.

          • Yup. Already downloaded the newest.

        • I’m just talking about finding the time to get shit done so they can be posted. I set up the podcast stuff for my last job. It’s pretty easy.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Oh, okay. I didn’t know that. That’s cool. The Geekery Cast could be interesting.

          • You mean you weren’t a regular listener of the TribCast, the best Queens news podcast from the end of 2014 to the beginning of 2015? I’m SHOCKED, sir!

            I think it’s still on iTunes…

  • I’m looking forward to Joe’s Flash recap. Last season, I really do believe it was the best Flash recap on the internet. And now he’s adding Legends, too? This is gonna be a good season.

    • ProjectBlue

      Recaps seems a tough game in general. You’re either going to get muscled out by the pros who either get screeners or power out the reviews the second the show’s over. So you get the immediate watcher traffic going there otherwise people will wait until they get to the dvr or torrent or whatever

      • Yeah, it’s tough to get clicks on them. I don’t think I got more than 5-6 clicks on any of the Preacher recaps I did… I’m hoping the weekend power rankings I’m going to post help that out, though.

        GIMMICKS!

        • ProjectBlue

          Seems like a good strategy, once the season gets really rolling I tend to miss eps here and there and use the weekends to catch up. Though with Arrow bumped to Thursdays now, should be easier to stay current.

          ….I’m pleased but shocked how far ahead Legends is for me at this point. Just goofy fun

          • It was my favorite of the four last season.

            Speaking of which, the Ranking the seasons I did for last season’s Arrowverse is the most-viewed non-open thread on the site right now.

    In other news, the original Casino Royale is just abysmal.

    • The Silver Fox

      The 1967 version is actually the second version made. The first was done in 1954 on one of the American TV live anthology series, with Barry Nelson as Bond and Peter Lorre as Le Chiffre. It’s actually pretty good.

    • Because Money on the Table watches weird shit.

      Because I am watching the 700 club

      • he’s gone a long way off just 700 members of his club

    She’s the hip one.

    • I mean, as long as she doesn’t think it’s a good idea.

  • If you’re using Heaven spelled backwards for your kid’s name, shouldn’t you just shorten the process and call the kid Hell?

  • Ginger Mahal

    A girl I…. used to know…. had a kid this morning. A daughter named Moira.

    I’m looking at the Instagram post and I’m like “yeah, that’s so Irish, even I don’t know how to pronounce it.”

    My Mexican friend joked “just say it in the Lucky Charms voice.”

    I googled how to pronounce it. It’s Myra. So basically, it’s just spelled phonetically how an Irish person would say Myra.

    • Marv

      I detest the weird name thing. Just give your kid a normal ass name that looks good on a job application and if they want to be weird let them do that with their personality or hair or tattoos or whatever. The name should be normal though, people judge so much on the name before meeting the person.

      • *thinks about Rudo*

        This checks out.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Thankfully, I missed the Africanized name period by a few years of school on either end (late 70’s, early 90’s), so my classmates had relatively normal names aside from an occasional “Stormy” and “Taffy”. Yep, there was a kid in my class called Taffy. Taffy Allen, yet!

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Just looked up the name on Facebook on a lark, and I found him. He still goes by Taffy! That surprises me, actually.

          • Considering some of the names floating out there, “Taffy” ain’t that bad.

            Although I’d look like a sketchy motherfucker if I posted on the internet as “Uncle Taffy”.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I was sure he’d have changed it. Good on him for owning it!

    Detainees Complain Of Not Being Force-Fed During Hunger Strikes
    Per the New York Times, detainees at Guantanamo Bay are complaining (via their lawyers) that they are not being force-fed as rigorously while protesting with hunger strikes.

    David Remes, who represents another hunger striker, said his client had been on such a strike since August but had not been tube-fed despite losing significant weight. The client also told him that other protesters were no longer being force-fed.

    Another prisoner on a lengthy hunger strike — who was hospitalized in July, though he eats a small amount of solid food each day to accompany pain medication — told his lawyer on Sept. 21 that a prison official told him a day earlier that he would not be forcibly tube-fed, either, according to the lawyer, Pardiss Kebriaei of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

    • I’m losing my shit…

      • Stranger In the Alps

        When battles like this occur, I have to wonder why the pitcher doesn’t change location or change the pitch he throws. Same pitch in the same spot almost every time.

    • Is this a baseball guy?

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Yup.

        • I’m pretty sure that there’s a game on.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Channel 36 in Canada.

            Maybe, I don’t know. It’s wherever all the sports channels are bunched together.

          • I only get to channel 28 and whenever I turn tv on it’s usually on Netflix and I’m not farting around with buttons.

          • Buttons can be confusing…

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    Brett Gardner. Will. Not. Die.

  • YES!

  • Gritty, gritty Bret Gardner with a 2-run smack! Yankees take a 5-2 lead in the NINTH FUCKING INNING OF GAME 5!

  • Stranger In the Alps

    The Indians have officially shit the bed.

    • I’m not counting anything out until a final out is recorded.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Yep. We’re back to being Cleveland…

  • Facts

    Now 5 to 2. I love playoff baseball

  • congrats Ferrari …for Cleveland shitting the bed

  • George Steinbrenner would notoriously not let the staff set up a series win celebration until the final God damn out was recorded, because he didn’t want to jinx it. As Toby Ziegler would say, he didn’t want to tempt fate.

    I am not celebrating until the ninth inning is fucking over.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I really need to pick the West Wing back up. I finished the first season and loved it but I haven’t gotten back to it.

  • Facts

    I need a PS4 and The Show.

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    They better not walk Judge here lest they want to face Gregorious again(I don’t think they do)

  • Marv

    LOL now into the Fucking Ben Affleck video at an one point Robin Williams shows up and pours a bottle of water all over himself

  • Stranger In the Alps

    So do the Yankees send Chapman back out there after sitting for so long? I would start warming Kahnle.

    • Chappy goes out, I would think. But Joe will have Green or Kahnle in the pen. Sure as shit not Betances.

  • God damn it, Chapman… Get it together, son.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I need to go cry. This is avdisaster!

  • Holy shit.

    Wow.

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    Whew. That was tense.

    • I was literally on the edge of my seat for the last half hour. ALL work in the office stopped during the ninth. Which is amazing, considering everyone here are Mets fans.

  • The Professor

    so astros v yankees and cubs/nats v dodgers

    I like first timers so lets go with astros (especially after harvey) or nats

    • Marv

      I guess I’ll hope for the Dodgers, their park rules

  • Marv

    I’ve eaten egg salad three times today so tomorrow I’m going to keep count of all my terrible gassers.

    • The Professor

      why would you eat egg salad period?

      • Marv

        I made some for lunch today because I realized my son had never had an egg salad sandwich. And then later I had a couple more sandwiches. And then right now I had two more.

        Its good damn it.

        • The Professor

          so 5 sandwiches today; thats 5 too much

          • Marv

            I’m going through a growth spurt.

      • Egg salad is good. Egg salad three times in a day is bad…

    • Spoiler Alert: It’s gonna be a high number. And you’re going to hate yourself the entire time.

      • Marv

        No way I am always proud of my gifts.

        • This might be true, but I can guarantee you that you will have at least one moment tomorrow where you have to get up and leave the room because you need to get away from yourself and your stank.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I had broccoli and cauliflower lol I feel bad for anyone who knows me tomorrow.

      • GODDAMMIT YOU TWO STOP BEING THE SAME PERSON

        • Not likely to happen…

        • Macklin JeriPratt

          We differ in that I’m not proud of what I’m about to unleash. I feel like Banner after he sees the mayhem The Hulk has waged on the world.

  • Marv

    Matt Damon takes over Kimmel’s whole show and then just loads it with celebrities including Andy Garcia playing Guillermo in full character. What a fun gimmick.

    • The Professor

      isnt matt damon in serious hot water right now?

      • Marv

        Sort if I guess? He’s tied somehow to the whole Weinstein thing but so is half of Hollywood

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I loved the bit where they did Celebrities Read Mean Tweets and Damon was reading the tweet and then you see it was from Kimmel and the camera pans and shows Kimmel off to the side watching Damon read it.

      • Marv

        We’ve been watching this shit for like 90 minutes now it’s so fun

  • Marv

    So while Damon has taken over the show and just loaded it (Andy Garcia, Oldman, Kidman, Demi Moore and Sheryl Crow as the band leader) Reese Witherspoon shows up outside, and this is right after that tape with the DUI, and proceeds to pull liquor bottles out of her purse like she’s just walked the strip drunk off her ass hahahaha wow this is aweomse

    • Marv

      Oh and Amy Adams too, everyone is here lol

    • The Professor

      how old is this episode?

      • Marv

        2013 I guess

  • Marv

    Celebrities always do that kiss thing when they meet, I should’ve done that to Peyton’s wife I could’ve gotten away with it no matter how horribly awkward it ended up being lol

  • Marv

    Tomorrow I may send Edna a pic with a diaper full of egg salad lol that would be good

  • I’m very annoyed I have to actually do work for the next hour.

  • Marv

    Matt Damon in a green outfit on a green screen acting out putting a big “sandwich” in his mouth lol

  • Marv

    Ok goodnight pineapples, 9:45 we’re rock and rollin’ it fam!

  • Matt_Indeed

    This is Matt from the future thread.

    Spoiler alert: I will not be happy Thursday morning.
