Instant Hippo Thoughts – Superb Owl (2019 Season)

Yes, Steve Atwater gets the banner pic.  He fucking earned it.  The Smiling Assassin was a childhood hero, and remains a damned fine human being.  Another thing to celebrate in this damned fine season of FITBAW. Of course, there was the little matter of Sunday night's game.  Fat Andy v. Baby

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Championship Sunday (2019 Season)

Oh, holiest of holy days.  The last pure FITBAW day on the calendar (the Superb Owl is MOAR a sports-themed event than anything, plus only one game).  I hope everyone reverently enjoyed and appreciated it. Tit Men and Chefs always felt like a great matchup, and Q1 certainly lived up to

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Divisional Saturday (2019 Season)

Hey, buck up P*ts fans.  Turns out it really was THEM, not you. ¡Viva El Tractorcito! indeed.  Add a jump-pass TD throw to his growing legend.  Oh, and just a buck-95 plowing fields on the ground.  And while Lamar! will no doubt be unfairly shat upon by the sportsball media (he

Happy P*ts Schadenfreude Day 2020 Hippo Thoughts

Until he wasn't.  And mein Gott, how he wasn't.  Except for one

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Week 17, 2019 Season

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Week 15, 2019 Season

Hippo hopes y'all had a nice weekend.  There was no FITBAW on Saturday, which sucked ass.  Next weekend will be better that way.  Also, I had a killer migraine all day Sunday, which really dampered my enjoyment of Everton taking a nice point at Old Trafford.  It also impacted my

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Week 14, 2019 Season

Despite the very ending of the late window - this was a really great FITBAW Sunday (otherwise).  Let's not let that spoil things! [Closed Captioning for the Hard of Hippo provided by the Church of The Immaculate Suzy, Rev. Mayhem presiding] We had Most Glorious Scorinami [a unique scoring combination never before recorded

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Week 13, 2019 Season

I like to stay away from the super deep thoughts.  Because deep down, comedian Doug Stanhope has it right - the key to life is to not give a shit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCGkVyyDOcU When you care, you get fucked over.  Especially in sportsball.  But we can't help it. Lucky #13 held true for some of
