Your DOGGIE Westminster Show Open Thread

Nothing matters tonight other than watching cool doggies doing their thing and, hopefully, pooping on the carpet.

All your details are here:

TV coverage is on Fox Sports.

For all of you that don’t know, Ryan Reynolds, my personal spirit guide, has decided to sponsor The Show through his gin:

Now get to writing and posting about dogs!

LA’s team fired its Defensive Coordinator after one game. The XFL has reported he will be replaced by…Paul Bearer.

It was the XFL, so…no. i have my pride, and it’s going to be AT LEAST another week until I’m dope sick enough to come crawling back to get a fix from the rotten skag that is the “St. Louis Battlehawks”

I had a martini tonight. I told the Dr. Mrs. that I plan to break through the expected hangover by drinking a bunch of water and taking some Aleve. If it doesn’t work I will probably have to swear off gin for good.

Meanwhile I just got a letter about my lab results basically telling me to kiss my legs goodbye

I really hope that is just a joke that I am not getting.

Normally “kiss those legs goodbye” is a joke I would make about Andy Reid digging into a bucket of drumsticks.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a simple sauce I could put on our steaks (NY strip, sous vide) this evening? I don’t have any cream but I have plenty of garlic.

Ketchup

Ketchup.

Seriously, you may want to try marinating it in a soda (Coca Cola or Mountain Dew) or maybe a vinaigrette sauce.

Are you nuts? The only thing Coca Cola is good for is mixing with single-malt scotch on the rocks when you can’t get any RC Cola.

I worship a Mediterranean meat sauce that has been deemed a Class 4 War Crime in other parts of the civilized world. That’s where my culinary taste comes from.

Senor Weaselo

Torchbearer’s Zombie Apocalypse!

yeah right

Sorry I’m late to the party but pan sear your steaks then melt some butter, add in the garlic and a splash of Worcestershire and a bit of dijon. Stir for a minute or two then spoon over your steaks.

Almost mandatory today, plus a nice reminder that Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon would do their best to make anything work.

Is every dog named Thor?

That ill conceived Birds of Prey movie that shoehorned in Harley Quinn even though she wasn’t a part of the group and completely mischaracterized the characters of the Birds of Prey members up to levels not seen since Dragonball Evolution and Barbara Gordon, the one person who started the team wasn’t in the movie even though a film about a newly paralyzed Batgirl being forced to redefine herself and start over would’ve been a far better movie and been way more empowering in today’s world — somehow bombed? Huh, imagine that.

Yet somehow genre critics actually liked it. I thought it was a goddamn mess.

Yeah, but they love everything and that’s why no one cares or respects them

How’s Picard?

Redshirt

Still slow but its early because they are establishing the show, the new setting and the new characters. Currently, its continuity porn and Patrick Stewart acting his ass off.

Trekies would love it. Casual fans would hate it. But if the special effects are any indication, I have a feeling the fight scenes are going to make the DS9 Dominion War space battles look like Asteroids.

Is Michael Vick doing color commentary at Westminster this year?

Only the losing dogs.

Don’t get me wrong, I love doggies. But to me, the dog shows are like canine versions of Little Miss Sunshine. They would probably benefit from the presence of Alan Arkin as a lovable geriatric heroin addict.

Just preheated my oven for Yeah Rights this week recipe.

With how I’m slaving away in this kitchen, I sure hope Robert Kraft doesn’t offer my wife $30 to force me to give him a handjob.

I can’t remember if I’ve told this story: When Lambeau was a pup, we entered him in a dog show out in the Fraser Valley Bible Belt. We came second in the Working Group, likely because of the shirt I was wearing.

Is Lambeau morbidly obese and freezingly inhospitable?

Best in Show is a good movie, speaking of dog shows. And according to my dog show competitor coworker the characters are pretty damn close to actual participants.

Senor Weaselo

Better than A Mighty Wind (also a good movie), though obviously not in the same tier as This Is Spinal Tap.

Christopher Guest has been married to Jamie Lee Curtis since 1984. I’d rather be his penis than a sentient being, to be honest.

I never miss the dog show! I watch it with my cat, Henry. My dog Bear died last year, but he would have won it every year of his life!
