I fell asleep and forgot I was supposed to put this up.  Oopsie.

Remaining Sportsball:

Turtles at Sparty (in progress – ESPN)

ThePaul at Creigh-Creigh (7:30, FS1)

Seton Hall at Providence (8:00, CBSSN)

Wahoowa at U*NC (8:00, ESPN)

I don’t want to read anything, which is making trying to write collaboratively kind of hard

I’m not suggesting that Jesus had a gun but if Jesus did actually legally own a gun what would it be.

I’m going Springfield Armory 1911.

45 cal. Legit stopping power.

Jesus don’t play!

How many garters do you own, Moose?

Yeah, that’s the Happy Baby pose. Totally done that, but not in public

Doktor Zymm

And only with relatively solid leggings

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

If not in public what does it matter?

Doktor Zymm

Fair, and if I really extrapolate I suppose I meant a limited public, while I’ve done the exact same with only one other with zero leggings, so eh

Damn it. Watch blaxito all day (wife is staying on strip with friends to see Gwen Stefani) and my sole reward was going to be watching ua/Stanford on Hulu Live. But the Game is on p12 networks so I can’t view. What bull shit.

Doktor Zymm

There are so many ways this makes me feel pretty good about the not married/no kids thing. Also, find a stream on reddit, fuck paid content

Had a wild day with Decilitre, ate 10 mg edibles since 7 am, tolerable. Now all are asleep, killed a btl of Rhone, just smoked a big hash joint, all is good. For now.

I just don’t want to watch on the laptop. I want to watch on the god damm clear tv!

These have been one and the same to me since 2002. Put the the output into the input, man!

That reminds me, haven’t been to Colorado Springs in a few months…

It should be “one hundred” and thus dropped to #51. Or “one-hundred” with the excessive dash usage in this list.

Thread title got me to reminiscing. I had a 45 I bought back in about 1970 by a band called The Ides Of March, the song was called Vehicle, and I thought it was a badass tune by a one hit wonder. So now I just went and looked it up based upon Hippo’s thread title, and, holy fuck.

James Michael “Jim” Peterik (/ˈpiːtərɪk/ PEE-tə-rik[1]; born November 11, 1950) is an American musician and songwriter. He is best known as the founder of the band Survivor, as vocalist and songwriter of “Vehicle” by the Ides of March, and as co-writer of the anthem “Eye of the Tiger”, the theme from the motion picture Rocky III.
Peterik has co-written songs for 38 Special (“Rockin’ into the Night”, “Hold On Loosely”), Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackhawk, Cheap Trick, Sammy Hagar (“Heavy Metal”), Cathy Richardson, Van Zant, Brian Wilson, REO Speedwagon, and The Beach Boys.

Guess he wasn’t really a one-hit wonder after all.

Sounds a little pervy these days, kinda like Oingo Boingo’s “Little Girls.”

Col. Duke LaCross

Been a longtime karaoke staple for the colonel.

Excellent to know that I am not the only person who remembers the tune.

And here’s another song from that same era that no one has heard of, but which I owned the 45 of. Haven’t listened to it in close to 50 years, but I still kind of dig it. I was always into bands that featured horns. Chicago Transit Authority, Blood Sweat and Tears, Oingo Boingo, you know…

Ok, this is nerdy, but we played that song, hella badly, in band when I was in high school

Paramedics just taking an older Turkish gentleman from the lounge to the hospital. He initially declined, but ultimately listened to his wife who wisely said that the hospital was a better idea than a 14 hour flight when you’re having acute enough medical problems that paramedics need to be called and hook you up to oxygen

Erdogan strikes again.

Did not research, hoped the story was about Erdogan. Oh well.

Doktor Zymm

I would guess he has a private jet and doesn’t fly out of LAX, and the dude seemed ok, can’t see Erdo politely insisting that it’s just indigestion

Was the old Turkish guy Hedo Turkoglu? Erdogan gets his tea from Russia, if you know what I mean.
