Your “Hurry Up Please, It’s Time” Tuesday Evening Open Thread

Beerguyrob

NFL Nuggets:

  • It’s all about the pain today:
    • Bears quarterback Nick Foles is day-to-day with an injury to his right hip and gluteus maximus. 
      • Initial tests showed no fracture to his hip, so they are hoping it’s just bruises & he will be ready to go after their bye.
    • Medical tests performed Tuesday on Drew Brees revealed multiple fractured ribs on both sides of his chest and a collapsed lung.
      • The scans showed five definite rib fractures, and further tests may reveal smaller or hairline fractures.
      • If he has to go on IR, he will be out a minimum of three games.
    • Drew Lock is dealing with a muscle strain and bruising near his ribs.
      • He played through it against the Raiders, but hasn’t practiced yet this week.
        • The Broncos play Miami this weekend, and will make a decision by Thursday.
      • Brett Rypien, who beat the Jets earlier this year, is the current #2 and will take reps with the main team in the interim.
  • Antonio Brown was accused last month by the community in which he lives of destroying a security camera and throwing a bicycle at a security guard.
      • The president of the Hollywood Oaks homeowners association declined to press charges, and said the issues which provoked the outburst “have been fully and amicably resolved, and everyone is getting along just fine.”
        • This will likely keep him off Roger Goodell’s radar. Well – spoke too soon!
          • Since the incident occurred October 15, and he signed a contract on October 27, either he didn’t tell the Bucs, or the Bucs didn’t do due diligence.
            • Either way, Roger’s going to take a looksee at things.
  • In more positive news, another refgami will be accomplished next week.
    • The NFL will make history next week with the first all-Black officiating crew in Week 11, led by Referee Jerome Boger.
      • They will work the Monday Night game between the Rams & Bucs.
    • This comes on the heels of the September 27th game which had two female coaches & a female official.

How my FF league is going: I’m putting in a waiver claim for Jameis Winston

Senor Weaselo

Gonna eat those Ws.

No need to be crabby about it.

On the plus side, I assume he’s free to talk to anyone he wants. Like say an incoming administration

If the Toledo War had ended up differently, this game would rival OSU-Michigan in stature. As it is, it’s just couple of small Ohio schools. High scoring so far, though. Mucho excitamente!

MSNBC reports that Wayne County (Detroit) changes their vote and will certify the election for Biden. After “3 hrs of public pressure.”

Trump’s minions tried to disenfranchise Detroit voters and apparently that won’t work.

Good news in John Wayne County though-Prop 1939, known as “A Stagecoach In Every Barn” bill, has passed.

I can’t imagine it’s all that hard to figure out where those fuckers live, and I suspect it’s only a little less time than it took for them to change their votes.

Aren’t you the owner, and thus can reschedule it if you so choose?.

I can, but the question, “Why?”* becomes problematic and embarrassing.

Unsurprised

There are worse reasons shithead small business tyrants give for much more petty and stupid things than this.

Unsurprised

What a stupid fuck. It’s a damning indictment of so many other rich and powerful bastards and of every single system of power, influence, control, and information that this dumber than dogshit, deadbeat loser didn’t lose all of his father’s money on a bag of magic beans.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) said that President Donald Trump’s relentless demonizing of mail-in voting cost him the state’s electoral votes in the 2020 presidential election.

The source of Raffensperger’s claim is a marked, substantial–and electorally decisive–drop-off in Republican voting that occurred between Georgia’s primary held in early June and Election Day.

Hopefully Trump self owns himself all the way to prison

Horatio Cornblower

You spelled “self-immolates” wrong.

Unsurprised

No former U.S. President will ever be charged or indicted for a crime.

TheRevanchist

They did an interview with this guy on NPR. I don’t agree with his politics, but he takes his job seriously. He’s getting constant death threats to him and his family, plus Congressional folk calling for him to resign, all because he believes in doing his job fairly and to the letter of the law. That’s some serious backbone.

I did a TDY up at Grand Forks AFB a few years ago. My work colleague had been there quite a bit in the past and knew the decent restaurants, which were mostly in East Grand Forks MN, across the river. You could almost feel the IQs raise somewhat as you drove across the Red River from ND into MN. Well, marginally, anyway.

I have spent a lot of time in Fargo, and Grand Forks. They are simple Jesus fearin folk. The distillery in Fargo could only serve what they made in house including mixers. So no beer, wine, cola etc. The law was from prohibition times.

It’s all hoax just like the election.

Twenty years, no, FIFTY years, of double-dealing bad faith bullshit and people still act like logic and consistency and coherence have any relationship to the same universe as the one Republicans operate in really makes me wonder how the fuck I’m not on their side. I can be a cruel piece of shit. I’m just too stupid to be selfish.

So what you’re saying is, 12 people in North Dakota.

/Wait no, that’s Wyoming

Still have the same number of Senators as California, and half the population of Manhattan.

A small price to pay to protect slavery.

These Pacifico beer commercials really do piss me off, with the dramatic music and scenery. You are the Mexican Coors Light, stop acting like you are some craft home brew. Your beer tastes like piss.

ballsofsteelandfury

I’ve never been a fan of Pacifico, but it actually is craft in the sense that Samuel Adams used to be craft.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Another brand of Mexican beer named for a body of water is RioGrandico. It’s fucking awful, tastes like mojado piss.

I’ve never heard of that. Are you sure it’s not a practical joke they play on the Texan gringos when they cross the border in Laredo?

Viva La Tabula Raza

I made that up.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Oh, and the joke beer they used to serve at the leather and plaster lawn burro shops in Nuevo Laredo was Corona, at least until the mid-1980s.comment image

My neighbor two doors down has one. And an actual plaster lawn burro. He is Mexican-American. At least he didn’t have any Trump campaign signs up.

I’d say Tecate is more the Mexican Coors with Tecate Light being the Mexican Coors Light.

Then again, I like Tecate.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I am sure I have mentioned this here before, but drunk people tend to repeat themselves: speaking of Mexican beer, the wife of a guy I worked with for years was featured in a Negra Modelo ad a couple years back. They told me the money from the ad paid for them to take a round-the-world cruise. Olga is a cool lady, but despite the origin country of the beer, her and Ed are both from Puerto Rico, not Mexico.

I actually like Pacifico more than most other Mexican beers. I think it’s only second to Negro Modelo, the honorary beer of Richie Incognito.

Pacifico Familiar though

This past four years has shown us that so much of the power of Government was based on norms and that the framers never once thought that a single person would just say ”No, make me.” and bring everything to a crashing halt.

ballsofsteelandfury

The entire British government is set up the same way. It’s pretty funny if you think about it. Like they expect people to do the right thing…

Is there a single country-forming document out there that has accounted for a willful, venal individual that ignores said document? I’ll hang up and listen to your answer.

James May’s new cooking show on Amazon is fun.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I really like that guy’s style. I never was big on cooking, though, more of a “warm something up in the microwave” person, even more so since I had my gastric bypass; I recently saw a link to somewhere he was seeing if you could eat cat food or dog food or something like that. No thanks, I’ll go watch the Japan show or Cars of the People or him putting together lawnmowers and toy trains.

ballsofsteelandfury

Watch his show. It’s perfect for you.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I’ll have a look-in.
