Read something interesting: mother of Jack's child could be the woman he saved with spinal surgery, the Italian broad. Remember her?

It's a start. Nothing about making the game Weebs proof but I can't see that ever happening. We have a guy in our league that rolls out on every play and hits the same WR on a crossing pattern every time and there's not a thing anyone can do to stop it.

I'm a little shocked about this, can't you just setup to double the receiver, play the safety yourself and
pick the shit out of him?  Is it just his WR is ungodly or is there some wrinkle to this that I don't
understand?

It's the gayest thing you've ever seen. It's gayer than a penis going into a man's butthole. You can have 11 guys covering this person and no matter what he's open. You know how NCAA has that thing where if you throw a ball hard enough the receiver will suddenly sprint ahead of his defender and catch the ball? That's a lot of it.

He beats most of us pretty bad - he has lost before - but when he does he still scores 6-7 touchdowns. But against the CPU he's scoring 60-80 points a game. I mean surely you'd think a gaming company could invent a defense smart enough to learn how to stop the same play over and over again. Apparently that's how some people have fun. I'm not one of those people. And so I loathe this game even while taking part in an online dynasty that's been going on since last fall.

Building a team around a running game is pointless because of that stupid fucking "play the run" crap. They had seriously better get rid of that. It was like guessing the right play in Tecmo Super Bowl. Same thing with the conservative, balanced or aggressive game plans. Gey. So gey.

The game didn't even have numbers on the helmets?  Even NCAA 2004 had them, what was so damn hard about it?

People still think NCAA 2006 for Xbox was better than any of the "next gen" games that have come out. I don't think that's untrue.

Not really meatballry, I was just curious as to what he's been playing like (I hadn't heard him mentioned much).



The Chicago Meatball sez:

Kaner? He could be great but he's too lazy.

Also, he never backchecks!*






*YES HE DOES FUCKING BACKCHECK

He's getting quite good at it.

I thought it was really well made. I felt like I was going crazy toward the end and wondered if I could know if I was crazy. HOW WOULD I KNOW?!? HOW WOULD YOU KNOW?!? I'm still not convinced that those goddamned McCarthy fascists didn't set Daniels up.

Well, since Chuck D inserted the spoiler, I'll just say that the look on Michelle William's face when she said the thing about her school being in session on Saturdays after she drowned the kids MAY have caused me to piss myself in terror. May have.

I dislike her but she was excellent in this movie. Damn the more I think about it, the better it gets.

Burton croaked before the movie was released, IIRC.

Watched it once, a long time ago, but I also only read the book once, also a long time ago.  Thanks for reminding me to re-read the book.

One other thing I forgot to mention. I don't remember this from the book, but apparently women are not allowed to shave in Oceania. Julia has an absolutely enormous bush in this movie.

I have no idea why this, of all RV posts, has made me laugh out loud.

Because you envisioned a chick with a huge black bush. There's nothing not funny about that.

We're gonna look like idiots if this fat fuck has a good year.

I'm confident we won't though. FML.

The day of the trade my Cardinals fan buddy (not IAN) who likes to play devil's advocate on anything I get pissed off about, which is a lot, tried to  tell me I'll regret my anger when he is good. I wouldn't back down. That fat fuck is going to suck and I'll go on thinking it was the worst trade Hendry's ever made and more the reason to fire his dumbass. This team has to make a trade to save a couple million a year? Well, if you dumbfucks were a little smarter with your money, then you wouldn't be in this fucking situation. Fuck Carlos Silva. Fuck Jim Hendry. Fuck Tom Ricketts, too. Him and his little scheme to recreate the Cubs teams of the 90s as managers is surely going to end well. RSM! GMPC! MGHC! TWBC! SD3BC!

Wait, apart from ACB you also post on Cardinals fan blogs? You fucking traitorous jello mold.

I can get behind the notion that I don't have any friends outside of the interwebs.

Him and his little scheme to recreate the Cubs teams of the 90s as managers is surely going to end well. RSM! GMPC! MGHC! TWBC! SD3BC!

I don't understand any of this.

Ryne Sandberg - Manager (which I will concede he didn't have anything to do with him getting into the organization 4-5 yrs ago), Greg Maddux - Pitching Coach, Mark Grace - Hitting Coach, Turk Wendell - Bullpen Coach, Shawon Dunston - 3rd Base Coach.

I'm just looking forward to the prospects of a bleacher bum being the owner. It's gonna be great. It'll illicit all those nice feelings of what it's like to be Cubby! fan

Do you think it's a bad idea to have Maddux around? Are you in on some secret Ricketts hiring plan that the rest of us don't know about?

I'm going to throw something crazy out there: it's possible to pander to dipshits by bringing donuts to people waiting in line to buy tickets and hiring some loser to "direct fan experience" WHILE AT THE SAME TIME running a successful baseball organization. Let's see how it plays out, chubs.

No, I donít have a problem with Maddux being around. That link that you posted the other day was nice, but I also think someone pointed out that Stevens should have been doing that long ago. Greg is a good thing for the club, probably. Sandberg as manager, Iím not cracked up about. Obviously, the other 3 were exaggerations but the reincarnation of the 1990s Cubs is the feeling that I have <i>illicited</i>.

He might do good things for the club, but Iím not convinced yet. After 5 months, Iíve made my decision. I needed answers and solutions right away. Instead I get a retention of troughs because of tradition.

I don't think Maddux is going to do anything significant to help the team. But it's harmless as far as fan-pandering moves go.

When the deal closed, Ricketts repeatedly said that they were going to take a year to evaluate everything about the team. If Kenney and Hendry are still around next winter I'll be glad to jump on your hatewagon.

You'd hope that regardless of finish in 2010, they'd "evaluate" these two assholes out of town. What I hate is the mentality that I have to root for another failure of a season for the Cubs to do something different in the operations department.

I expect the Cubs to be absolutely mediocre. Meaning Ol' Ricketts is going to have to let us know if he really believes that's acceptable. Does he honestly want the Cubs to be one of the few teams in the majors that will not accept anything less than championships? If so he's going to have get these morons out of there and do whatever it takes to hire the best.

Illicit feelings.

Like an Illegal Smile?

I give up.  What is an illegal simile?  For that matter, what is a legal simile?

I know what a vertical smile is.

It was like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse who couldn't tell you the truth if their lives depended on it.

Are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse known for their rhetorical skills? I'm just a heathen who doesn't know shit about biblery, but don't they just ride around on their horses fucking shit up?

They really just stood around in nice suits and talked a lot. It wasn't as dramatic as that bible would have you believe.

I'm not gonna lie. I would totally start rooting for Ole Miss if they do that.

Agreed.  I'd probably buy a shirt and a hat or something.  Isn't Ole Miss on CBS most weekends anyway during the college football season?

Nope. You were looking for Florida or LSU. Florida or LSU.

Bump as a reminder that real hockey is back in less than a week but, speaking for myself, my jones has been uber-satisfied by not only how fun the hockey has been in Vancouver but also how well each of the Hawks has fared at the championship level.  Sure, you could be a DOOMersecksual and whine that those 6 guys will all get gassed by collectively playing so deep in the Olympics, but 100% of the Hawk Olympians are playing in the medal round. That's gotta count for something, damn right yay?

By my reckoning, two loses by Finland are all it will take for the Hawks to bring home more Olympic medals than any other team.

The Sharks would still be in line for 5, but the Hawks would edge them out on the back of their mighty Slovak Power.

And Kopecky.

It's nice to see Kopecky has a twin brother with the same name that doesn't completely suck. He should let him be the one that goes back to Chicago.

Or the Hawks could hope to draw Belarus and Germany in the 1st two rounds of the playoffs.

He was +1 with a goal against the Swedes. Not a terrible team by any stretch.
