SPOILER ALERT - Read no further if you haven't seen the season premiere yet.




Good start to the final season. No Sam Elliot and only a little Garret Dillahunt but this was more about setting up our old friends Boyd, Ava and Raylan on the chessboard or whatever it is game they're playing. So, we got some classic Raylan, with him pulling off shit he should never get away with, Boyd masterminding a sweet bank heist and our favorite dumbass criminal's swan song. And it's nice to see Raylan and Art back on speaking terms.

  • His boys are pissed it ain't cash, but it seems pretty obvious that the notebook that Boyd came away with in the safe deposit box robbery is going to be a major plot point this season, right?
  • Karl's probably the smartest henchman Boyd's ever had. So I'm certain he knows that being the only guy who can point law enforcement to Dewey isn't good for him. I'm guessing Dewey Crowe might have one last cameo this season.
  • I was glad there was more screen time for Gutterson, and hopefully we'll be getting more Rachel as well.
  • Nice to see that Ava's keeping Chekhov's gun in her nightstand.
  • Vaya con dios, Dewey. Hopefully you were an organ donor so that your 4 kidneys don't go to waste.

Does anyone remember where exactly the Ted Lilly Is an Axe Murderer meme began? Just curious. Feels like there was never a time I heard the name Ted Lilly without thinking of it.

I think Kerm established it shortly after Lilly joined the Cubs.

Earliest reference I could find http://hirejimessian.com/2007/04/04/post-game-notes-cubs-at-reds-april-4-2007/


Hmm. Even that quote almost seems like it was already established, but barring further evidence I will declare Kerm the Progenitor of the meme.

Now if only we could get some kind of evidence that Kerm was real, and not some kind of myth.

Sounds like someone needs to hit the red-hot DuPage improv scene.

I can confirm that the Kerm character is alive and well.

We get it. You blew him.

Why would I do that? He's not even a Cubs blogger.

You can't OWN a Tweet, man.

Thank you BBM for alerting me that this had been released (and fuck you Cartoon Network for not making a bigger deal out of it).

And now my review...

LEE

SHIT

If you ever posted in this thread, go watch "All This And Gargantuan 2". Now.

That is all.

1. I have no idea how to even know if someone unfollows me.

I've seen people on teh Twitters talk about how they lost followers after such-and-such tweet and I wonder the same goddamn thing--how the hell are these narcissistic fuckmonkeys constantly able to keep tabs on lost followers?

There are sites where you can sign up and they'll monitor it for you. As to why anyone would care enough to do that, I don't know.

Well, if you don't monitor that stuff how are you going to grow your #brand?

Screw all you guys. Baez is going to hit .270/.320/.500 with 30 HRs and excellent defense at 2nd and send handwritten thank-you letters to everyone who believed in him all along (e.g. me) and lunch bags full of buttpuddle drippings to the rest of you.

Hey I was the guy who said he may already be a better shortstop than Castro.  Hell, put Javy at SS and Starlin at 2B and I like my otherwise suspect projected numbers even more.

Don't worry I've made note. Javy will probably take you and I out for an anchouive pizza to celebrate his season!

Hooray!

Cut into strips, natch.

Pedro also pitched in the American League, with 9 professional hitters in the lineup on a daily basis.

This has led me way down the rabbithole, after marveling at Pedro and then Maddux's 95 season I'm now just marveling at Walter Johnson. Deadball Era be damned, the man averaged 330+ IP from 1908-1919 and put up a 173 ERA+ during that time.

Stats. I love em.

Your Walter Johnson mention has sent me deep down the rabbithole as well.  Jeebus, Cy Young averaged 350 innings a season over a 21 year career.

Which reminds me, I need to read "Crazy '08" again, and highly recommend the book to anyone with an interest in old timey baseball things.

So, this is the first ever documented instance of Al writing an open letter?  I truly enjoyed the fact that he states in the first sentence of a letter he is sending to be published in the letters page of a comic book that said letter is "open".  What the fuck else could it be?  If it was closed, it wouldn't be published.

Also for the record:

1. Al bemoans the fact that controlling editors (in chiefs?) use their power to monopolize the content of their comic book letters page and  don't give him the freedom to talk about what HE wants.

2. Al declares that just because people have been reading DC Comics longer than him, that this doesn't make their opinions on DC Comics more valid than his.

At long last I have found it - the internet's Perfect Irony.  I hereby resign my position as arbiter of ironic things. The next time you have a question, please refer to this incident (and Al's ensuing career on the internet) and you should be able to judge for yourself.

Good night, and good luck.

Edward Herrmann.

Great as FDR and as a PTSD doc on M*A*S*H.

And as Herman in the 1995 revival of The Munsters.

Chucks gonna Chuck.


so it's good? It's probably next on my list of things to see.

Yes, very good. Probably my favorite Marvel movie, but I'm not one who is wrapped up in all that continuity bullshit.

George McCaskey's got the keys to the spaceship now. Buckle up.

they're hiring Mike Shanahan or Rex Ryan and they're still going to suck. Happy fucking New Year.

Why not both? Shanahan as GM/Offensive Coordinator and Rex Ryan has Head Coach!

Singletary as assistant HC/DC.

I kind of want them to hire a slew of '85 Bears to run this whole thing just to watch that shit crash and burn while slack-jawed yokels wonder how something like this could happen.  Yes, I would sacrifice 2 more seasons if it meant ending the '85 Bears once and for all.

You think that would be the end of the '85 Bears and people's unyielding adoration of them?  Who're you crappin'?

I can dream.

But shit, if hiring Jerry Angelo and Phil Emery in succession can't get Ted Phillips fired or even reassigned...
