Your Mid-Long Canadian Weekend Sunday Evening Open Thread

Beerguyrob

Is everything going well for you? The long weekend is proceeding according to plan so far.

I’ve been sober long enough to survive my niece’s 7th birthday party. Now it’s back to the steak & cider.

That’s right, I’ve chosen fermented apples for this weekend. Mostly because the dogs don’t like Beerdrunkrob. Ciderrob is a more pleasant fellow that can remember to take them for walks & doesn’t yell at them for chewing so loud.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • no game scheduled; Gary Bettman thought 3:00PM Sunday was the perfect fucking time for the faceoff of a pivotal Conference final game.
  • CHL:
    • Memorial Cup – Guelph vs. Halifax – 7:00PM | Sportsnet360
  • NBA:
    • Bucks at Raptors – 7:00PM | TNT / Sportsnet
  • MLB:
    • Cubs at Nationals – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN2
  • MLS:
    • LA Galaxy vs. Colorado – 8:00PM | TSN

Hopefully, before the night is over, I’ve finally seen “John Wick 3”.

Update: I have turned the freezer and refrigerator temps up, (they were set at “FULL FUCKING ARCTIC BLAST” when I checked), and took all the ice tea, (because who fucking cares, right?), and transferred some beers upstairs.

Since Friday I have, with some help, sent 13 beers to their Valhalla and I just counted 83 beers in the fridge.

That was me yesterday, especially after I stumbled upon an “IPA festival” at a bar after we picked up reinforcements at Monkish. Tonight is a whisky night.

Unsurprised

If I could, I’d be in Connecticut by dawn.

Time to get some sleep.
Have a nice evening, gents.

Unsurprised

Oh, sweet jeebus, I got it. Hooray!

I guess I can delay tonight’s Chernobyl until tomorrow since I’m not lacking for content to watch.

yeah right

Eldest granddaughter turned 14 today. I’m incredibly proud of her. She reads, she listens to music, some of it not that crappy and she’s funny with an open mind.

Go get em kiddo. You’ve got more energy than I do.

Horatio Cornblower

Congratulations on being old.

That movie brings me so much joy.

Brick Meathook

Holy shit a monsoon just rolled into Los Angeles

Horatio Cornblower

An inch of rain, eh?
/makes wanking motion until I get carpal tunnel

Brick Meathook

Yeah, an inch per minute.

Pacific storms are surreal. They can dump water out of the sky, without a stitch of wind. And then it just stops and it’s clear

theeWeeBabySeamus

Speaking of which, I need to take a dump.
There may also be wind.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

It rained here for a minute. Dryer than a vagina in the lobby of Seamus’s hotel now.

Horatio Cornblower

Oh my god.

theeWeeBabySeamus

The overnight clerk who took over is a dude.
Maybe I can go gay after all.

theeWeeBabySeamus

/searches google for late night astroglide sales

Unsurprised

Now I just need to figure out how to download Instagram stories from people who won’t just email me the original video.

I should’ve paced myself with my ice cream treat, too.

Horatio Cornblower

My beer fridge came with the house back in 1998. It’s overloaded and it just started to leak. There’s only one thing to do…I’m gonna have to drink until the fridge is back in balance. Tell my family I was fond of them.

Unsurprised

They’ll know it’s a lie.

theeWeeBabySeamus

No shit, I am totally sick of getting that look.

You can’t deal with your own shit, you ask me to do it for you. I do it very quickly and efficiently.

Then I get that look.

It’s getting really fucking old.

Unsurprised

It’s not too late to go gay.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Hey, I only knew this girl for two days.
New tWBS record.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I feel much like Nathan Jessup right now. Again.

Horatio Cornblower

Well, he was a solid guy and everything worked out well for him, so I wouldn’t change a thing!

/Guys, get the tranq gun ready. In fact, get three ready.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Nah. I’m good. But probably switching hotels tomorrow.

Horatio Cornblower

Look man, we already gave Rikki the banner. You don’t have to back him up.

theeWeeBabySeamus

LMFAO….I hadn’t noticed the new banner quote.

I hate you fuckers. hehehehehe.

Unsurprised

Yeah, but this is based on the aggregate.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Mostly based on my poor judgement of women I suppose, if I’m being honest.

Unsurprised

At least you’ve thrown yourself out there, and had enough good to risk the pain. Beats the shit out of where I’m standing.

Senor Weaselo

Hey, a song from Avenue Q that isn’t “The Internet is for Porn”!

yeah right

See banner quote.

Senor Weaselo

So, in a based ball story… how bout them Mets?

Unsurprised

I guess I can binge Veep while I try to figure this out and wait for Barry.

Yay, Barry! This is going to be fun.

Horatio Cornblower

I’m gonna start binging Barry this week. Maybe Veep too, although for whatever reason I never cared about that show, even though I laughed at every episode I bothered to watch.

Unsurprised

Veep is the most realistic political series on television, which is depressing as Hell. It’s also funny as fuck because the creator honed his skills doing the British version for years before he ran Veep for the first four or five seasons. Peter MacNichol is a rare guest star who was robbed of an Emmy nomination and certain victory by chickenshit rules-lawyering (DAMN LAWYERS!) as Jonah’s uncle.

I haven’t seen this last season, and so I’m going to binge that with Barry. Maybe I’ll just hold off on Chernobyl until it’s over, although I wonder if bingeing that could be considered a suicide attempt given how horrific the real events were.

The true king was the friends we made along the way?

Unsurprised
Brick Meathook

Did they kill the midget?

Unsurprised

Spoiler

Nope.

yeah right

Nope he’s hand of the crippled king.

Horatio Cornblower

As far as finales go, that was fine. Some huge plot holes, (like how the Dothraki and Unsullied apparently multiplied by a factor of 5 after the Battle of Winterfell, or why no one seems to have gotten Varys’s notes from last episode about who Jon really was), but good fan service and Jon got to pet his dog again, so whatever.

The season, however, was a fucking mess, start to finish. Episode 2 was great and everything else looked like the Hindenburg coming in for a landing in high winds.

yeah right

There certainly were a lot more dothraki than the battle of Winterfell showed.

Horatio Cornblower

That bothered me so much. Jorah Mormont, 6 Dothraki and some horses come back from the charge. Three weeks later there’s 5,000 of ’em.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I’m pretty much in full agreement with your assessment.

Horatio Cornblower

Well, my Mom says I’m reasonable and handsome, so you’re probably right.

Senor Weaselo

Evening lizard people. I don’t know Game of Thrones but I read the ending. On a scale of Dexter to Six Feet Under, how was it?

Gratliff

If Jon had a plaid shirt, it would’ve been Dexter

Horatio Cornblower

I’d say it was ‘Friends’, but with more murder.

Which, ironically enough, would have made the final episode of ‘Friends’ a lot better.

Unsurprised

In college I spent 2+ years working on a poultry farm, so it with some experience that I can say that this meter person is a total wuss.

Unsurprised

Now, geese. Geese are assholes.

Horatio Cornblower

Geese are some motherfuckers.

Unsurprised

Oooh. Now for the real shit. Revolutions just began season 10: The Russian Revolution.

10.1- The International Working Men’s Association
In 1864, a group of working men formed an international association called The International Working Men’s Association.

Sharkbait

Revolutions is my go to while waiting for more Hardcore History

Unsurprised

Fuck. I’m stymied.

Gratliff

WWE is throwing Lesnar back into the title scene because they weren’t going to let HBO get all that good, good hate tonight.

Brocky

Also, for those of you who may have noticed my absence:

Brocky

I liked the finale.

Could the last season have been better? Of course.

But this final episode was well done.

ballsofsteelandfury

So, what happened to the hot blonde that killed everyone? (Dany)

Unsurprised

Spoiler

SHE DED

ballsofsteelandfury

It’s a shame.

Unsurprised

Oh, compared to the meltdowns last week I imagine Twitter is literally on fire right now and the employees are fleeing for their lives.

Unsurprised

AS THEY GODDAMN WELL SHOULD!

Gratliff

Grey Worm not stabbing every noble in sight is inexcusable

Unsurprised

That could be said for every time he’s ever been on screen.

Horatio Cornblower

That Grey Worm angle was bullshit start to finish. My man has no reproductive system left and he’s so in love with Missandei that he’s going full ‘Archer’ rampage for weeks? Fuck that.

Also, what are the people of Naath gonna think when all these heavily armed eunuchs show up on their beach and announce that they’re going to stay? Property values are gonna fall faster than when colored folk move into the suburbs in CT.

herodotus450

They must have heard about Mussolini keeping the trains on time and thought, I bet Bran could keep them regular, too.

Unsurprised

God damn it.

yeah right

Agree. The last few episodes were rushed but this is a satisfactory conclusion.
It makes sense.

Plus, the anthem of the king is probably a song by The Cure.

Buddy Cole's Halftime Show!

Game of Thrones is when Rick Mirer and Cortez Kennedy used to play to see who could clog the Kingdome toilets first.
