Though it's already turning into a Mastodon Friday, I urge you, fine readers of this thread, to check out Shrinebuilder.

Jon, I will sell you in short order - Scott Kelly is in this band.

Anyone watch this show with the grating, overperked host? She's trying so hard to be entertaining that it becomes irritating almost instantly. Stop fucking yelling.

Anywhat, they pitted Mr. Beef vs. Al's on the Chicago episode. I would like to hear who you guys prefer. We're actually taking a trip to Al's down the street for lunch to celebrate absolutely nothing.

I prefer the beef and giardiniera at Al's, but Mr. Beef on Orleans has better ambience, in that it's completely no frills, and you stand at a counter to eat. 

The judges chose Mr. Beef 4 to 1 over Al's in a blind taste test. The one vote for Al's was from their designated superfan who also happened to be the biggest guido meatball I've ever seen.

I wonder which Al's they ate it.  I've heard suggestions that, unlike Portillos, Al's quality varies from place to place.  I'm  most familiar with the one at Ontario and Wells and I prefer it to the Mr. Beef which is about 2 blocks away, around the corner.

They were at the original Al's on Taylor St. They held the contest at a bar next to Mr. Beef which seems shady but whatever.

I'm in it for the food porn.

My plan:

1) Make these fuckers travel by train.
2) Move LA to play next door to the Nets new arena and force the Giants to play wherever Bloomberg was going to put the new Jets/Olympic Stadium that never happened.
3) Put the Mets out of their misery.
4) Force the Twins back to Washington and the Orioles back to St. Louis. Send the Braves back to Boston.
5) Put the A's back in Philly.
5) Contract Arizona, Tampa, Colorado, Florida, Toronto, Seattle, Milwaukee, Kansas City, the Nats, Padres, Mets, Astros, Angels and Rangers.
6) Go with a 154 game schedule with this alignment:

National
Brooklyn
New York
Boston
Phila.
Pittsburgh
Cinicinnati
Chicago
St. Louis

American
Boston
New York
Washington
Cleveland
Detroit
Chicago
St. Louis
Philadelphia

This is novel. It might just work.

I like it!

Finally, you found the place where I'm equally conservative.

I love it too. This something I'd do when playing around with fake computer baseball simulations. Old time shit is where it's at.

And TJ, don't think I don't appreciate the hell out of what you did with the abbreviation of Philadelphia. Top notch, sir.

I owe you one TJSlaky entree*.

I've got a friend who doesn't think she's attractive at all. Just a pale redhead with big boobs. Said he could find tons of girls hotter than her just walking down the street.

I don't even...

Pacman, I'm Jewish!

I think that was the only funny line in last night's show.  Really lazy episode.

I laughed definitely a few times, but I do agree that 30 Rock, more than the other shows, seems susceptible to subpar episodes from time to time. I hope they ditch Elizabeth Banks and her weird blonde wig. She's not good in this show.

Typecast.

""What movie could she play in?" Stern questioned on his live broadcast. "You feel bad because everyone pretends that she's part of show business, and she's never going to be in another movie."

The comments made on Stern's show sparked a heated debate among moviegoers and industry observers, with some believing the shock-jock was simply saying what everyone else is thinking.

Jeffrey Wells, a columnist who's lent his candid perspective on the industry to a variety of outlets over the years and now blogs about it on HollywoodElsewhere.com, said in an e-mail, "Gabby is a lovely person and a fine actress, but the hard fact is that she's way, way too fat," adding that the actress will suffer from health problems as well as limited career opportunities if she doesn't lose weight.

"I don't want Gabby to not work, but the only roles she'll have a shot at playing will be down-market moms and hard-luck girls working at Wal-Mart," Wells continued. "No casting director would choose her to play anyone in the upscale executive world ... because no one in the executive world looks like her.""

It's nice how you can't say true things about huge fat people without getting killed by all the wonderful, kind-hearted people who never, EVER make fun of fat people. It's good to know all these wonderful people are out there fighting injustice and name calling. I hope to meet one of them some day.

It appears that RF is all Colvin's next year. Justin Upton's next year

Impending Fontenot trade'd.My destiny in life is to be battered with MikeC's scrote until I finally admit I'm a faggot

truth'd

It was just a joke, Yeti.  Take a deep breath.

Shouldn't you be saying that to yourself? Or did you just assume I got all pissed off about that?

That's a pretty good Kurt Evans impression.  Let's see you try BC.

Well it appears this new Yeti personality is my sleeper team for the highest probability of underachieving. I don't know what the f*** his problem is. He just needs to graze some ass.

I'm quite amused with the whole thing going on right now. It's the best thing to happen to this site in months. Keep it up.

"Cubs manager Lou Piniella said Wednesday that Xavier Nady (elbow) won't be ready for regular outfield duty until June.

Nady is slowly forging his way back from Tommy John surgery. He made his spring debut on Wednesday afternoon, but was limited to DH duties and is likely to stick to the limited role for the next few weeks. He will be used primarily as a pinch-hitter over the regular season's first few months."

Via Rotoworld.

I haven't been on the up an up on the Cubs much this Spring, so it's news to me that Nady won't be ready for "regular duty" until June.

Sounds like he's going to be really useful taking up a roster spot.

Precious is NOT beautiful, for the record.  Howard Stern is right about her.

Who said she was, Thrill or Ian?

Everyone who talked about her or interviewed her at the Oscars.  Fuck Hollywood.

Since when are morbidly obese people not considered gorgeous?

Ron Cedeno Freddie Bynum was no Freddie Bynum. Jose Macias


Thing was, as bad as Jose Macias was, he actually had a major league career before he came to the Cubs. It's kind of special knowing that Cedeno and even Bynum got their first taste of undeserved major league service as Cubs.

Although there was a moment in time where I thought RonCe might actually have been turning into a decent hitter. I can't say the same for Bynum.

With the honesty and integrity of a shady used car salesman, Nancy Pelosi pitches Obamacare to the public....

Quote
But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

You always know your getting an awesome deal when the salesman busts out the "trust me" line or says you have to buy it first to see what you are really getting. That always helps me put my guard down and makes it easier to fork over the cash.

Or for the people not based in Nancy Pelosi's fucked up world of insanity, it makes people distrust you even more. You Democrats need to muzzle that bitch, she doesn't help you at all.


At this point, you're really just a parody of yourself.

At this point?

This fucknut crossed that Rubicon ages ago, in my book.

I just love how he comes in, doesn't comment or reply to any of the posts before his, then pumps out the crazy.  Great stuff.

It's MikeC's fucked up world of insanity.

We're just posting in it.

Have any of you Democrats put a muzzle on Pelosi yet? Muzzles aren't that expensive. I heard if you schedule an appointment with her secretary you can get in there and slap the muzzle on. How hard can it be? Oh right, it's just like you Democrats. Always passing the buck. I have an idea. Why don't you ALL go put the muzzle on at the same time? You know, like a Communistically or something.

Yeah you would do that. You make me sick.
