NFL Noise:

  • The AB thing is over a $4000 moving dispute.
    • A company he hired to store & ship his stuff back from California refused to unload it at his house because he refused to pay.
      • When the van drove away, AB threw rocks at it, causing minor damage.
    • When he called to apologize & promise to pay the $4000 + $800 “damages”, they agreed to return.
      • Then Brown & Brown’s trainer, Glenn Holt, grabbed the van’s keys, assaulted the driver & threw him out of the van.
        • They began unloading Brown’s stuff, including items in the van that weren’t his.
        • “Burglary with battery” – a Florida felony.
    • The driver called the cops.
      • TMZ has the audio, but here’s the money quote:
        • “The guy is high, he smoked, he threatened me,” the driver says in an accent that sounds Russian. “He’s trying to fight, he throws stones at my truck.”
      • Holt was arrested & Brown ran inside the house to avoid them.
    • Florio compares the whole incident to the thing OJ did which got him the Nevada jail time.

  • Stadium updates:
    • Las Vegas Raiders – Allegiant Stadium – 80% complete.
      • Henderson, NV training complex not on schedule.
        • Training camp to be held in Alameda, CA.
    • LA Rams – SoFi Stadium – 85% complete.
      • The first events at SoFi Stadium will be Taylor Swift concerts on July 25 and 26.

   

The avarice & resemblance is uncanny.

  • Campbell’s Spicy Chunky – Donovan McNabb has reignited his beef with Terrell Owens.
    • In a story with Sports Illustrated, McNabb blames TO for the Eagles not returning to the Super Bowl.
      • McNabb blames the offseason & preseason contract dispute, saying
        • “He’s doing sit-ups, he’s doing pushups, he’s playing basketball, he’s ordering pizza for people out there, we’re sitting at training camp like, ‘you gotta be kidding me.’”
    • Naturally, TO’s got his side & a Twitter account.

I’m going to be away for a while. The buddy I went on the baseball trip with this summer got got by his cancer yesterday. I’m going to help the family with arrangements & clearing out his shit. In advance I’m appreciating all your condolences & thoughts, and will be back eventually. But I’m not going to lie – this one hurts a lot.

Looks like they are going on a different tack with the new Pelaton ads.

SonOfSpam

Talked to a recruiter for the first time in about a decade. It’s cool to realize halfway through the conversation that after working from home for so long, I have no idea how to communicate verbally any more. HURR DURR ME GOOD AT WORK THING. Whatever. You need me asshole, make it work.

WCS

As someone who also works from home, this made me laugh faaaaar tooo much than it should have.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Normally I wouldn’t have another drink at this point, but my in-laws are here, so I believe I am ENTITLED to one. Or two. And it doesn’t matter that they’re already asleep.

SonOfSpam

I normally wouldn’t have another drink either (yes I would), but I have now worked out THREE days in a row and I hurt like the kid I punched to feel manly earlier today. She’s mostly okay.

That banner image is a perfect artist’s conception of me an hour ago, when (while I was downstairs helping her mother find a few empty jars) the Dr. Mrs. Deadly, Esq. (ret.) restarted my computer without saving of the work I’d been doing for the previous two hours.

/it didn’t end up being that big of a deal thanks to autosave, but I was VERY upset prior to finding that out.

Good to hear that your Martha Stewart/Snoop Dogg slash-fic will still be released on schedule.

I grew up looking at this brass plaque which belonged to my dad; for some reason he gave it to me (he’s still with us at 83), and it now hangs in my dry bar. Mine is in a lot better shape, though.comment image

At first I thought “dry bar” meant a bar with no alcohol, and I was wondering what the hell you were thinking. Then I looked it up.

Probably “old people” terminology. Sorry amigo.

Nah, more like a real estate term that this renter has never had to learn.

Judging by some of the Linkedin invites I’ve gotten recently there are women in various countries that would like to visit the US. Well, they can’t compete with what is in my email spam folder; why got to all that trouble when there is hot MILFs near me who want to fuck. That and painless miracle skin tag removal cream.

Do people still do phone sex? I mean I know there are hot singles in my area that want to hook up but
“You’re all alone, pick up the phone.” TBS commercials at night?

I used to get a lot of those “Bulverde women want to fuck you” ads on my desktop computer. I’ve lived here since 1992, and it’s a small place, and I’ve never seen a single one of the women pictured in any of those ads in any of the local bars. You’d figure if they wanted to fuck so much, they’d be at the local bars. And I go to all the local bars.
But now, since I mostly use my Dept of Defense laptop even when I am at home (except for porn), I never see those ads. DoD firewalls at work, I suspect.

Anybody else getting the gross ear wax removal ads? Seems like I’ve been seeing them for weeks. Fuck’s sake, I know how to use Q-Tips without puncturing my eardrums. Is this something I’m getting because the internet somehow knows I’ve turned 60?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Oh, that reminds me, an ex-girlfriend sent me a note via Linked In. Let’s see what she had to say!

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

“Congratulations on your work anniversary.”

Yep, I think it’s pretty clear she never truly got over me and thinks about me all the time.

Proof that the mushrooms are kicking in: according to Wikipedia there is a new season of Veronica Mars released last year, and one of the episodes was co-written by Kareem Abdul-Jabar.

Just popping in to mention that Marsha Blackburn should kill her entire family and then herself.

Just got an email from Fed Loan Servicing saying all my student loans are paid in full, so it’s time to whip up a think piece on how paying for college builds character

Now you understand why it’s so important that we never allow anyone else to graduate with less than $60K debt!

Yes it is. Look at the bright side; we can make fun of the burning Cuyahoga again. Of course the kids won’t get the joke since lead poisoning does that to you.
