Your “Was I Snoring Too Loud?” Friday Evening Open Thread

This week's theme is a suggestion by some person who may or may not be known by the moniker of Rikki-Tikki-Deadly. You can't prove anything!!!!!!! Frankly, when the suggestion was made, I was ashamed of myself that I hadn't already thought of it myself.  Honestly. IMHO there are very few things that are

Super Harbaugh Rivalry Bros: The War of the Oaken Bucket

Hey Jim. I need some advice. Since this seems to happen to you all the time, I figured you'd be the ideal person to ask. What can I do for you, brother? Well, Jim, I wanted to ask - what's your approach for dealing with getting your ass handed to you on

Your “Stand Tall” Friday Evening Open Thread

Normally I am more attracted to petite girls.  But every now and again I find myself looking slightly upwards and thinking... yeah ok, fine by me.  Let's do this. Never happens, though.  Most tall girls don't like it when they're taller than their date.  Trust me. Meh, you can't have everything.  Climbing

Super Harbaugh Rivalry Bros: The Pork & Beans War

Nice job last week, Johnny. Living up to the family reputation, I see. Watch it, kid. My season may be done, but at least the Ravens have a bright future ahead - unlike your prospects of returning to an NFL gig any time soon. Look, we may have gotten our asses kicked

Your “Second Verse…” Friday Evening Open Thread

...Same as the first. Perhaps I'm getting old and predictable.  But with less than a month left in the NFL post-season we gotta get it in while we still can. I had considered waxing philosophic tonight about that orange guy at 1600 who is about to get us into a major "conflict"

Super Harbaugh Rivalry Bros: The War of the Golden Stool

Hi, I'm Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh. And I'm Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. You might recall us as the first pair of brothers to ever face off against each other as NFL head coaches. It's safe to say that as brothers, we're close, but also competitive as hell. Isn't that

Your “The Playoffs Are Near” Friday Evening Open Thread

Yup.  Wildcard Weekend is upon us. Easy there.  I know it's exciting, but be careful.  Don't hurt yourself or you'll end up in the blue tent. My Ratbirds finished in a big way, so they don't even have to play this weekend. 14-2 Baybeeeeee!!!!! Sorry, gotta get it in before they get upset at

Your “Get It In While You Still Can…TWSS” Friday Evening Open Thread

Only a few days left until we get to our "Year of Hindsight". 2020. Get it? OH COME ON THAT WAS CLEVER OF ME!!!!!!! (ok fine...never mind) Anywhoooooo.... Thank youse to BrewChuggingDonnie  and Señor Weaselo  for sitting in for me the past two Fridays.  The timing was good.  Serendipity is a good thing sometimes. But not always.... But

Your “Mele Kalikimaka” Christmas Evening Open Thread I wouldn't mind being in Hawaii right now, truth be told.  I wouldn't be freezing my ass off. But I'm not in Hawaii.  And I AM freezing my ass off. I just finished wrapping a bunch of crap for people who won't appreciate it.  I'm still fighting with a company which still

Your “Christmas Eve Is A Pain In The Backside” Open Thread

Seriously.  It really is.  I thought I got all my stuff done weeks ago.  I was wrong. I'm cooking today.  Cooking a lot of stuff. We discussed what to cook.  We bought a pork loin.  We bought a buttload of ground beef (tacos and chili next week....woooooo!!!!). We bought a turkey.  We bought
