Your AngryRantingHippo Late Afternoon/Evening Open Thread

King Hippo

Boy howdy, has today sucked all the ass.  Dirty ass, fresh off a round of Hunta Virus.  NC State and Everton playing in the same window is just TOO MEAN, even for 2020.

Anyhow, here are your footy options:

Auburn (+24.5) at Alabama (3:30, CBS)

I guess this line is so tight due to Nick Saban’s #NuAIDS.  Would Roll Damn Tide win the NFC East?  Somebody better ask Peter King, see how strong his MAYBE! be.

Northwestern (-13.5) at Michigan State (3:30, ESPN)

Trappiest Trap Game ever trapped.  Trapper Keeper (hey, remember those??) ought to be sponsoring this mofo.  Money where mouth is, $30 on Sparty ML.

Mississippi State (+9.5) at Ole Miss (4:00, SECN)

Dread Pirate Mike Leach in his first Egg Bowl.  There will be coo-coo-ka-choo.  Money/mouth proximity redux, $40 on Cowbells ML.  Remember last season, when this fixture got BOTH coaches fired??

Rutgers (+11.5) at Alabama (4:00, FS1)

Man.  You want to talk sad-ass, disinterested, back alley handjob of a fixture?  But gotta watch somethin.’  Perhaps I shall place a wager.  But not so done yet.

LSU (+15) at Texas A&M (7:00, ESPN)

Uh…bet the over.  There will be less defense here than in Everton/Leeds.  Yes, was nil-1, but should have been like 3-5.

Utah (+7) at Washington (7:30, ABC)

Yeah, slim pickins.  You should see the shitshow that Fox got stuck with for primetime.

Reclusive, vulgar Broncos fan. Also a proud fookin' Evertonian. Likely dropped on my head repeatedly as a small child. [Insert George Carlin quote followed by thoughtful nod.]

Back in 2014, he had to intentionally take away all the QBs from the NFCS to get a 4-12 playoff team. The NFCE is doing it on their own.

Unsurprised

Won a playoff game without a QB in 10

They won a Super Bowl without a QB in, what, 2015?

Last one before I go to bed. One of these days, we should translate it for the DFOers. I’m sure they’ll get a kick out of it:

I might just watch it this year because I love Mr. Rickman. I mostly hate it because of the overexposure. I saw 2 & 3 and found them ok.

ballsofsteelandfury

Rickman made that movie what it is.

As true today as it was then

It really was amazing how Mafalda evaded censorship. Because it wasn’t subtle.

ballsofsteelandfury

Not at all. And especially in those years. Argentina in the 70s and 80s wasn’t exactly the bastion of free speech…

Don T

Yeah, and Quino pulled no punches. People were dissapeared for much less.

The mom was hot. God; I always went nuts for older ladies.

Hee hee hee! Yeah she was! 🤣😂

This is Quino. another dynamite Argentinian artist who died this year

I’m guessing the guy with the gun is her nutritionist

Damn. He was a legend!

I grew up on the Mafalda books. I still have them and every time I have sopa de fideos, I remember him/her.

Don T

I preferred the other stuff. Even as a kid, I found Mafalda waaay preachy. Except her hatred of soup #Obvio

ballsofsteelandfury

She was definitely preachy and political, but I enjoyed her take on everyday life. Plus, the Argentine sense of humor is sublime.

Don T

And their concept of public service is slapstick

Don T

Re, Slut Phase: I see the wisdom behind it. It’s just not for me. I think you should get to know a person, find out common interests, and then tailor the filth accordingly.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I’m in the same boat, though mainly because I’m insecure about my genitals.

ballsofsteelandfury

That’s if you want a relationship. The purpose of the Slut Phase is to NOT get into a relationship.

It’s to have fun with others without focusing on the future. Thinking in the present helps to heal from the past.

JA JA JA JA JA JA JA!

That’s basically what you’re going through right now. 🤣😂🤣😂

Saw first three episodes of The Crown. The Duke of Edinburg should get aGolden Globe for Best Supporting ass. Woof!

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I have had very excellent (and high abv) stouts tonight. Where to from here?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I went with Islay scotch based on the deafening silence

blaxabbath

I live in Vegas and still can’t get to the sports book fast enough to bet against the Broncos.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

14.5 points is….not enough

litre_cola

We have met. I could get you 14.

litre_cola

You are betting against me as the qb??????

Doktor Zymm

It’s too bad the US has such poor math education, in most places a half back would be worth two quarter backs

Mr. Ayo

A&W would like a word about their 1/3 lb burger

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Rewatching The Rock. Lady BFC has never seen it before. Enjoyable to watch the flick and her reactions.

Doktor Zymm

The unrealistic action movie rather than the unrealistic wrestler dude I assume?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I don’t see what’s unrealistic about a trolley being blown 20 feet in the air after crashing into a parked car.

Doktor Zymm

Greens are done. Slow cooker is great for braising. Will eat them tomorrow with some pulled pork and maybe make some pasta or other starch

Dunstan

Just got an Instant Pot on a Black Friday sale. Looking forward to eating more beans now that I have a pressure cooker. Plus, it’s chili season!

Unsurprised

Now you need a Time For Chili hat

Don T

I did garlic shrimp with thin spaghetti. Plus some cream sauce* on the side. Adding parm would’ve been over the top.

* 2% milk with butter, flour and salt & pepper. Healthy meal for my standards.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

That sounds amazing. We’re still working through the leftover turkey. But with added bacon today.

Don T

Bacon makes everything better. I always have an extra pack in the freezer. BLTs are heavenly. Just add mayo and bread.

Recovery Whiskey

Finishing off Ozark. Literally everyone in this sucks at their job.

Recovery Whiskey

Except Ruth she’s pretty badass. Though still massively flawed.

Dunstan

I got partway through season .. 2, I think? And then I gave up because I realized I don’t like or care about any of the characters. They’re just all awful people, and not even in an interesting train-wreck kind of way like Sopranos or Breaking Bad. It’s well-acted and professionally shot and everything, so I get why people like it.

Unsurprised

Episode 3. Which is one more than Man in the high tower. Egads that sucked.

blaxabbath

I watched most of the first season of Man… like one episode per month and really wanted to like it. But apparently I did not.

Completely agree on Ozark. Well presented but I hate every single character. I did not feel good watching it

Don T

I enjoyed Ozark. Well, not really. Lemme try again.
/cracks knuckles
Ozark was very interesting stress porn. Jesus Christ the tension.

Unsurprised

The average home scent user buys 56 home scent items per month.

yeah right

Get crunk check.
Play guitar check.
I may have killed Santa though.
It was in my lyrics.

yeah right

I apologize.

litre_cola

Clarifying, do I have to tell Deci Santa is dead?

Congress will sort it out but my money says yes.

Pickerception and a Huskies win.

Unsurprised

Holy shit

Recovery Whiskey

That was an epic college football game and thats not just the 11 shots of whiskey talking.

Recovery Whiskey

This woman announcer sounds like Wayne Newton

Recovery Whiskey

Huskies go 88 to come all the way back from 21-0; 24-21 UW. :36 left
