Eventual Balls Thoughts XXXI

Eventual Balls Thoughts is now on Tuesdays after the AFL Beat until the AFL Grand Final when it will move to 7 AM unless the NFL season gets cancelled because of COVID in which case it will move back to the Monday 7 AM slot as Hippo will have no more Instant Thoughts to share with us.

I have started work on developing a “Gently-Used Fleshlight Hall of Fame” and I’m researching all the winners of the previous competitions we’ve held here at DFO. I have, as would be expected, all of the winners of the AFL Tipping Contests and the AFLW Tipping Contests. I also have the winner of last season’s English Premier League Tipping Contest as well as the winner of last season’s NFL Tipping Contest (hosted by an Australian ESPN site).

I also have the winner of the DFO Survivor Pool (hosted by the USA ESPN site and run by our own Yeah Right) from the inaugural year of 2015. Things get a bit fuzzy after that. I also discovered that we did a NFL Spread Picks pool and a NFL Straight Up Picks pool in 2015 and I have the winners for those, but I don’t know/remember if we continued those contests in subsequent years.

If anyone has any recollections about the contests we’ve run and, more importantly, who the winners were, please write them in the comments! Thank you!

I just discovered that cutting the cord not only saved me a bunch of money, but I also got back something I cut out a few years ago! Fubo TV has the NFL Redzone channel (the one with Hanson, not Siciliano) and it’s included in my package!

So, I watched it all day and came to some conclusions after watching the coverage:

  • I’m going to enjoy watching Tom Brady lose almost every week.
  • The Patriots are going to finish 9-7 and they will STILL win the division.
  • Which will make the losses even more painful for Brady.
  • The Ravens, Chiefs, Seahawks, and Packers seem to be the best teams in the league. There are your conference finalists.
  • I was watching a game on the local station via antenna and the action was almost a minute ahead of the streamed NFL Redzone Channel. That was weird because I’d get excited about a play and then get a feeling of déjà vu.
  • The Washington Football Team being called “Team” on the various channel scrolls was hilarious to me. They shouldn’t get a nickname and just continue being “Team” and change their uniform colours to white and light blue:
“Team”
  • The new LA stadium looks nice but I saw a graphic during the game that said it cost $5B while the Raiders stadium in Vegas cost $1.8 B. I’m sure Blax will have some thoughts about that…
  • It is funny to me that they showed a promo package showing “Hollywood” and talking about movie stars when it’s really “Inglewood” and there isn’t a white person within five miles of that area on non-game-days.
  • If the NFL is serious about ending racism, what about taking some pride in the predominantly black/brown city where the stadium is actually located and not trying to associate the stadium with a white neighborhood?
  • The best fried chicken and donuts place I’ve ever been to is less than a mile from that stadium. It’s amazeballs.
  • OhmigawdyouguysdidyouseetheendoftheBengalsgame? I literally LOLed when I saw that kick. Poor Redshirt…
  • The Steelers win on Monday Night Football was nice, but expected given they are now tied for all-time MNF wins with the 49ers and it was the Giants. Let’s see what they do against tougher opposition.

The Week in DFO

Here are the things I read in DFO this week that reminded me how much I love this site:

Some sub-optimal shit right here.

It doesn’t look good, but it’s still only the first period.

I’m getting drunk and listening to Ta-Nehisi Coates. Jesus it is depressing to think about the responsibility we collectively bear for the fuckedupness in this country.

I bear no responsibility for anyone else’s lack of self esteem.

Your cock needs to help end racism.

I have been to two pro wrestling events. The crowd was super nice and friendly.

At one point in time my brother in law leaned over to me and said, “There are two women in the ring, hitting each other with kendo sticks. This is better than a strip club and the beer is way cheaper.”

“Hippo will bet on anything, so earlier this evening we made a wager on who would die first. Obviously we had to bet on ourselves yet I made a few side bets on him. One rule was that it could not be a self-inflicted death, which would be morally wrong and cheating as well.
Here is what I believe will be Hippo’s death bed “last view” of this mortal coil:” – Brick

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Even though this is classic SI from back in the day I was expecting it because of subject matter and coloration as opposed to Navy etiquette.
