Your “Play-In Games Are Bullcrap!” Tuesday Evening Open Thread

Latest posts by Beerguyrob (see all)

Kind of a short write-up today. I’m quite hung over. Yes, it was worth it, until the wife finds out I dropped $100 on the evening. Strangely, none of it on strippers; last time I was at one, one of my former students walked out on stage. I left until she was done.

NFL News:

  • Eddie Lacy is going to the Seahawks. One-year; $5.5 million, with $3 million guaranteed no matter his weight.
    • I’m not getting rid of my Rawls jersey just yet.
  • Cordarrelle Patterson signed a two-year deal with the “Oakland” Raiders.
  • The Vikings signed Datone Jones away from the Packers.
  • Oh God – the Browns might make a play for Kirk Cousins.
  • Ted Ginn is going to drop balls for the Saints, for three years…THREE YEARS?! $11 MILLION?!

I detest the play-in games; calling the the “First Four” doesn’t pretty them up much. They reek of desperation, and they don’t even get shown on a real network. I’m surprised truTV can afford to stop showing “Impractical Jokers”. I’d love to see the complaint letters from the old ladies who are forced to miss an episode of  “Talk Show the Game Show”.

However, I will take the time to remind you about DFOs Bracket Challenge. Somehow, I ended up with Kentucky winning it all, and I’m too lazy or inept to figure out how to change it.

Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Wild at Capitals – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Blackhawks at Canadiens – 7:30PM | NBCSN
  • NBA:
    • Pistons vs. Cavaliers – 7:00PM | TSN
  • NCAA:
    • Play-in games:
      • Mount St. Mary’s vs. New Orleans – 6:30PM | truTV
      • Kansas State vs. Wake Forest – 9:00PM | truTV
    • NIT: all over the ESPNs; highlights
      • North Carolina (Greensboro) at Syracuse – 7:00PM | ESPN
      • Indiana at Georgia Tech – 9:00PM | ESPN

I suppose the hockey is just for Canadians, although I’m not sure why TSN isn’t showing the basketball. MAKES NO SENSE!

Welp,that was weird

Wherever Don T is, I found my new favorite Puerto Rican GIF to celebrate their win over the Domenican Republic.

If it wasn’t Irish Xmas and I wasn’t already committed to a pub crawl, I’d be there at Petco for it.

I am currently engaged in drinking way too much whiskey, way too fast. 10 shots in an hour. I promise to do the responsible thing and pass out half off my bed and only piss myself not the bed.

Croooow

NIT is fascinating in a “who gives a damn/who actually wants to be here” sort of way.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

Quit posting Trump pics

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

I broke a significant piece of my chair by doing nothing 2 nights ago. My night tonight is a balancing act so I don’t fall backwards and smash my face into the bed frame that is next to me.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

Also I am drinking heavily

Unsurprised

I did the same thing.

Senor Weaselo

Evening everyone. Anything good happen?

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

My life in general is a series of bad shit happening around me whether or not I caused it. Not asking for pity more a general assessment

Don T

Oh sí. Yadier Molina was a god.

Don T

I bet that pic on the wall is Morrissey. Under, um… Syd Barrett.

a little early for WF to just give up, but I do appreciate the extra 5 minutes of sleep!

Spanky Datass

The Ice Cowboys are absolute ass. I blame Drumph.

What in the actual fuck

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Great moments in parenting.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

The Flash seems to intentionally burn any good story for angst or just shitty writers. It is what made Arrow far less good and the spinoff is following suit. I will still watch but seriously they are trying hard to stop me.

Brick Meathook

Yes but what about the visual effects? They’re outstanding I’ve been told.

Croooow

Does truTV always tries this hard to be “wacky”?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Ok, trying to talk myself into having a few drinks and trying to sit in on drums for “open jam” night at the bar down the street. On the one hand, could be fun and would be good practice. On the other hand, I have to get up I’m 7.5 hours to drive to the airport. What sayest thee?

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

As a person who does the math down to the minute on his sleep schedule I say no. Flying is the worst and at best you will get 3.5 hours of sleep if you decide to go out. That being said it sounds like fun

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Counterpoint, I’m going right from the airport to meetings, so I think showing up exhausted and hungover could work.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

Well get your lazy not drunk enough ass out there quickly and quit responding to me if you are gonna do it

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Touché

Mrs. Baskets WOO!!!!

I thought you were a mallard with a cold

LemonJello

I didn’t know you were German.

This Play-in game I call it the opponent of Brown because it has the most Offensive Boards I’ve ever seen.

King Hippo

I’d let HER pilot my cock, if’n ya know what I mean…

Unsurprised

Then Trump should be Nostra-fucking-damus.

“I can’t believe only 5 years ago this game was just played in driveways”

“I can’t believe only 5 years ago these girls were just in grade school”

/ paraphrased without looking up the actual quote. I am probably somehow pretty off

herodotus450

How am I supposed to know which underdog, disrespected team I identify most with as an upper middle class white male if they are both the same seed?

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

Pick the one with more white guys.

herodotus450

I’m currently going with the team with more dreadlocked ponytails. More Grit.

If someone gave me a time machine I’d probably use it to go back to the 70’s and try to fuck Lynda Carter.

I’d fail, mind you, but it would be worth the effort.

herodotus450

Maybe you already did, called her wonderful, and that’s why she auditioned for the role!

King Hippo

I bought a used La-Z-Boy recliner from the Habitat for Humanity furniture store for my bedroom. I gon’ up my muthafuckin’ recluse game, yo!!
