Shempions League Takes Charge

And then, as if to honoUr the late, great (in terms of hilarity) Herman Cain – there were NINE.  Oh fuck, TEN.  My brain is so beyond borken.

Friday was the day everyone looked forward to, as For Realz Man City put Real Cuntfaces of Madrid to the sword.  2-1 away, followed by 2-1 at home.  Ouchie fookin’ ouch.  Lyon also put the Old Lady out of her misery.  Call them #TeamKevorkian, I guess.

Atalanta/PSG and Atleti/Leipzig are already set, in quarterfinal action.  Fascinating ties, both.  Watch out for the whippersnapper sides – the aging contingent sure didn’t look good yesterday.  After today, Portugal becomes Euro-trash FOAR Wichita.

For some reason, UEFA (actually, I noe teh reason – they is ASS-LICKING ASSHOLES) did NOT spread the action out for teevee.  Both of today’s matches kick off at 3p EST – but really, Barca/Napoli is the only one in any doubt.  Chelski head to Munich to try to make up a 3-goal deficit.  Yeah, good luck with that, Tory Cunt Frank Lampard.  Napoli would need a win in Spain, or a draw of 2-2 or higher.  The away goals rule amuses me.

As I have mentioned previously…I have small bets on Red Bulls, Lesser Eye-Tie Falcons, y PSG.  At least one will be in the Raging Semis.  Just give me a chip and a chair, and Hippo’s good.

Pretend Man City marches on.  #1 keeper is now a Dutchman, My Bloody Valentijn.  Boss Gilkey going a bit emo as he approaches 90.  They keep asking if he’ll retire, and he keeps saying “you’ll carry my Black ass out in a pine box.”

I have nothing else to say.  Enjoy the footy, and stay away from any el beisbol players you may know.  Jesus Tapdancing Christ, what a shitshow.

Litre_Cola:  Fuck Chelsea, did I ever tell you that Chelsea’s stadium…. nevermind.

Off to Munchen!

I’ve been to the Allianz Stadium in Munich for a Champions League during Oktoberfest. The game started at 9 pm, everyone was absolutely smashed and it was glorious. We bought 4 single tickets and they were all dotted around the ultras end.

Anywhooo fuck Chelsea, I hope the Krauts play their 1st team to get them back in shape after their layoff. Alphonso Davies is the future. Canada will make a World Cup they do not host in the future.

As for the 2nd fixture I am an unabashed Barca fan, so I hope they win. The positive side of my brain says this will be a big fuck you by Messi to the doubters as their season was nawt bueno in Espana. This season I’ve watched quite a few of Napoli’s games (HAIL GAMBLOR)and I’m unimpressed. Underwhelming Barca v Mediocre Napoli for a trip to Wichita!

Odds for outright winner.

Man City 3.25 to 1

Bayern 4.4 to 1

PSG 6.75 to 1

Athleti Madrid 9.25 to 1

Barca, Atalanta 10.5 to 1

Leipzig without Werner 19 to 1

Lyon 36 to 1

Naploi 76 to 1

Chelsea 276 to 1 bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

In other news the Canadian Premier League decided to get their shit together and hold a tournament on Prince Edward Island. Beautiful spot, I mean NHLers are in Edmonton and that place is not the best.  There are 8 teams this year as Athletico Madrid bought a franchise in our nation’s capital Ottawa. Athletic Ottawa has assembled a really good roster from what I can see and the big club can lend them 3 youngsters for game experience. They’re using this like their other venture in Mexico Athletico San Luis (fuck them too). The reasoning is that perhaps they can uncover the next Alphonso Davies as the buy in to the league is a fraction of finding a world class player.

The series opens up with a rematch of the final which was Cavalry FC (Calgary) vs Forge FC (Hamilton) ((Fuck them forever)). Most of the Cavs lineup returns intact as they only lost Joel Waterman to the Montreal Impact and Malonga to some obscure Bulgarian team that Hippo bets on. I don’t know what they are doing after the tournament as it will be winter here. That being said I was at a game last year when it was -10. I miss going to the games so much.

Basically the skill level is that of div 3 in England, but it is so much fun to go and scream for 90 minutes, we can’t do that now so I will watch from my couch.

Here is Cavalry FC’s head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. He is English but has lived here for 15 years and coached at every amateur level. He is a great dude who loves to have a pint with the lads as he was a regular at my local. TremendoUs coach who will succeed and move up should he want to leave this town. He always shows up and has time for everyone at the club’s pub nights and it is his mission to build this from the ground up. I hope he does not leave as he is a great face for the franchise, incredible motivator (at the last meetup his speech had me wanting to run through a wall), and tactically sound.

Also incredibly dapper on the touch line.

Proper dresser that.

P.S. Fulham is in the Premier League here are the highlights. The free kick goal is ridiculous and the 2nd is sexy futbol.

Be safe. Wear a mask.

/Carolina comes back from 3-0 deficit to win game

Toronto Media: So many bad breaks. Just bad luck.

/Leafs come back from 3 goal deficit to win game

Toronto Media: THIS IS PROBABLY THE GREATEST COMEBACK IN THE MOST OF EVER!!!!

Okay. Since all of you asked about the highlight of me delivering milk door-to-door in the early morning at the age of 16.

It was seeing the incredibly busty high school senior (that everyone wanted to date) sleepily open the door while wearing a see-through nightgown. Wow. Just… Wow.

He has don nada for Argentina so until he does he will be not at the absolute top. Ronny has all the hardware and records. He, Pele, Cruyff, Maradona, are 1st class finishers.

@Señor Weaselo – Did you see the Marble League schedule they just released?? It’s gonna be a busy week!

scotchnaut

My vote to play at halftime of the final? Ratt.

Gumbygirl

Noooo! How about the Rolling Stones instead. I’m going to finish dead last, so choosing the music should be my consolation prize!

scotchnaut

The competition hasn’t even started and you know you’re finishing last? Ya gotta believe in yourself. Also, you’re a marble?

Gumbygirl

It’s not the current marble league that I am last in? And yes I AM a marble, are you judging me?

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

You are well rounded as a person.

I wasn’t judging. I just thought you identified as a skittle. This marble thing caught me by surprise is all I’m saying.

Horatio Cornblower

I hadn’t seen the Brentford goal until today. The Fulham keeper tackling the guy trying to get the ball back is hilarious. I watched it 5 times already.

scotchnaut

Reminded me of the end of a lot of my first dates back in the day.

8 AM:
Shit! I can’t believe I overslept.

11:30 AM:
Ok, some more chores and the day will be productive. Lemme just buy some milk at the corner market.

4 beers later at the market with my neighbor and the owner:
Lust is important, love is better. Gimme 4 more to go. Man, I gotta eat summin’. Shempiens baby!

ballsofsteelandfury

8 AM is oversleeping???

Are you sure you’re Latino?

Horatio Cornblower

Shit, I’m Anglo-Saxon as fuck and I got up at the crack of 10. Didn’t feel a bit of guilt.

ballsofsteelandfury

I always get pissed because I wake up too early on weekends.

“9? I’ve got a couple of hours left!”

scotchnaut

Holy Banana! I wake up at 6am. Doesn’t matter what day it is. That said, I do come from a long line of milkmen.

herodotus450

But milkmen usually come in the middle of the wife day.

scotchnaut

Nah, they’re up real early.

Portland’s Stand Up has just entered the game. Will his backcourt partner Get Up be next off the bench?

Family up state visiting in-laws, so lunch is gonna be crossing two counties for shawarma and lamb chili before finding something to fill the next 12 hours

Okay, I did a bit of online stalking and I’m free and clear-she graduated from college in 2017. Whew!

[whispers out of side of mouth]

“She doesn’t look a day over 16. Shhhh.”

If there be no sports on the tube on weekend mornings I usually have SpongeBob on in the background with mute engaged. The downside to this is that the hosts that yak between programs are young-ish looking, perky girls (that are probably in their late teens) and that makes me feel a bit creepy.

herodotus450

Im taking this time to lay out a completely true totally obvious conspiracy theory for each of the possible draft lottery winners.

scotchnaut

[puts virtual arm around herodotus’ shoulder] “It’s nice to be productive in one’s spare time, isn’t it?”

litre_cola

Ice Bombers?

herodotus450

If the Penguins win, it’s OBVIOUSLY a conspiracy to keep Crosby relevant.
If Edmonton wins, it’s OBVIOUSLY a conspiracy to help a Canadioun team.
If Nashville wins, it’s OBVIOUSLY a conspiracy to help grow a newish market.

Game Time Decision

When the Leafs lose, it’s OBVIOUSLY a conspiracy to let the kid develop outside the BS that is Torona

Horatio Cornblower

If Carolina wins, it’s OBVIOUSLY a conspiracy to make Hartford feel bad.

Hartford: (looks up from park bench “home”, takes swig of fortified wine) Way ahead of you pal, way ahead of you.

scotchnaut

So my fantasy football league that’s been going for 22 years has voted to not have our usual auction and snake draft this year. Why? Because this year “will have an *asterisk next to it” and “who wants to put all that time and effort into the draft” (it takes place over about 5 hours on a Saturday afternoon) if the season shuts down? Sure, it’s going to be a weird shitshow but so what? What if the NFL manages to make it through the season? I’m dumbfounded.

Is anyone else not having a fantasy league this year?

litre_cola

All of mine are a go.

Game Time Decision

Mine are all a go but only do an online draft that takes an hour or so. And I fully expect the season to be canceled part way through.

scotchnaut

I’m sure as outbreaks occur the league will shut down for 3 weeks or so and try to start up again. That’s how I see it going-maybe happens more than once so we’ll be seeing the very first Super Bowl held in June.

Game Time Decision

Love the idea of the season being delayed so long that it fucks with the draft and off-season

litre_cola

That suits a home body!

scotchnaut

Yeah, there’s a big focus on the maintenance of ‘bubbles’ and that I can understand. But to not even bother with an online draft is weird to me.

yeah right

Shout out to the Cardinals for ruining my baseball viewing this weekend.

THAT’S how you infect your entire team THE RIGHT WAY!

yeah right

And the call of the almighty dollar. Football is going to be a disaster.

Watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with blaxito. This this is riddled with scientific inaccuracies.

I’d start with, “Mice don’t really have voice boxes”, and go from there.

How’s the weather down at Liberty University today?

Warm enough to unzip your fly.

I’m looking at a move soon and you can bet your ass I’m paying someone else to do it for me. Hope there wasn’t stairs involved.
