The Depths of Insanity Saturday

Oh, have you not been playing Football Manager 2020 with the intensity and the involuntary spasming of a prime crickhead?  PLEBIANS. I am as terrible at this as I am GAMBLOR.  PLEASE SEND OPIATES. Anyway, the Central European paradise that is unquestionably Belarus still rules our sportsball desert world.  You get a

All Belarus, All The Time Lesser Footy Open Thread

Dudes, it's all Belarus' world now, we just livin' in it. All of the various second and third world-ish football associations might be late to the cancellation party - but even Brasil state torneos and Ukraine have gone dark now.  The only thing remotely approaching first division footy?  The Belarus Premier

Your “IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! IT’S FINALLY HERE!” Superb Owl Open Thread

There's much talk of drinkling and fooding in the early thread so I know that everyone is doing it right proper today. The forty-five minutes I spent on the elliptical (god, I hate that motherfucker) won't even begin to justify the calories that I'll be absorbing through the day but

JV Raging Semi #2 (and Open Sabado Noche Thread) – 2019 Playoffs

No 2nd Jim Mora clip, I will just play my personal best song of 2019: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt9xg8niutY Clemson (-2.5) v. tOSU (Qardinals Base Camp, 8:00, ESPN) I told myself maybe I would moneyline bet whoever is the underdog, but this is a straight-up coinflip and I don't wanna.  Interesting philosophical dilemma for the class

Sexy Soccer Saturday Morning Open Thread and Champions League Group Stage Review

Drop That Bass Line Lesser Footy and JV NFL Open Thread

In honour of the Iron Bowl (MOAR below), check out this amazing new tune by the Cats who gave you 2018's Hippo Song of the Year ("Tinseltown Swimming in Blood"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mFTgJQtCPk Isn't that righteous?  I haven't heard awesome bass like that since Peter Hook (Joy Division and New Order).  It sure sticks

An Appreciation of Violence – 16 November 2019 Morning/JV NFL Open Thread

Yes, Thursday night was universal "shit on #ThePauls" night.  It's being noted, but only in passing, that Mason Rudolph tried repeatedly to corkscrew Myles Garrett's helmet off FIRST.  What followed demonstrated the unwise nature of "poking the bear" - but only Garrett and uber-coward Pouncey get the suspensions.  Dopey-ass Mason had the

Your Sexy Soccer Saturday Early Morning Open Thread

Due to Halloween happening on Thursday this week and our talented writers regaling you with their spooky tales, I did not do a Thirsty Thursday soccer preview post this week. As luck has it, though, King Hippo was unavailable to do this morning's soccer post, so here we are.
