NicJ said...

stupid fucking dbacks.

NicJ said...

ROLL OVER DODGERS!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Still has the sticker smudge on the glass in this new GT.

NicJ said...

the starting pitchers look a little off though.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Orel must have had this GT ready for a while; the pitching matchup says Monasterios v. LeBlanc.

NicJ said...

we probably just need to accept the fact that the giants will probably be in the playoffs this year.

I think that so frightening because if they end up winning a WS we have nothing to hold over them. Sure we have more but theirs will be shiny and new.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Go Yankees!

MR. F said...

Oh, this is where everybody went =(

Spanky said...

Wait...Wait...Wait!

Here it comes..........

< Fart >

MR. F said...

MR.LASF,
You should change the direction the arrow points.

MR. F said...

All up to Miguel Montero.

MR. F said...

FUCKING D-BAGS

NicJ said...

montero is saving all his hits for when he plays us.

Jokes on him.

MR. F said...

FUCKING OYSTER PUBES AND FUCKING VAGIANTS

Dusty Baker said...

Son of beetch.

NicJ said...

well now all we have to look forward to is this slapfight of a baseball game coming up.

Dusty Baker said...

That's not true, Nic. I have a lot to look forward to tonight. There's...well, there's...wait, there's...well shit, you're right. This is pretty much it.

MR. F said...

You guys don't have BBBQ's going?

Dusty Baker said...

Hell yeah I do, Mr F. What the hell do you take me for, some sort of damn commie?

NicJ said...

boise @ VT is what ill be watching. With random look ins on the baseball game to see if any of the new guys get to play.

Dusty Baker said...

What time does that game start, Nic? Should be a cracker.

Spanky said...

I destroyed my grill with steaks and bratwurst saturday night. Shit is a fucking mess and I'm too lazy to clean it.

Dusty Baker said...

Late scratch; I was going to BBQ but instead I'm just going to microwave some Stouffer's.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's the extra B for, BYOBB?

NicJ said...

5 i think DB.

Dusty Baker said...

Hell I don't even know what the middle B stands for in BBQ.

Spanky said...

I'll probably crash NEEEBS "Carne Asada on the Girl" party and ask his mom for dessert.

NicJ said...

whats the extra "E" for?

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

That "e" is for "extra e".

NicJ said...

well i just looked up "neebs" in the urban dictionary and i hope he isnt one of those. Maybe that why he has the extra e.

NicJ said...

ESPN needs to put Lou Holtz to sleep already.

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa, hey! Urban Dictionary has a word for everything.

Karina, close your ears.

Dusty Baker said...

I wholeheartedly agree re Holtz. Bastard's been dead for 6 years and they keep propping him up.

Of course, he's been dead to me since shirking Razorbacks back when I was but a lad.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I want Boise State to win just to fuck with Colin Cowherd.

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! I was left dumbfounded with "The Meaning of Neeebs".

Now which definition describes our Neeebs? No.5 perhaps? HaHa

MR. F said...

LOL these definitions are ridiculous.

NicJ said...

i usually like boise to win.

NicJ said...

whats up with the tron designs on VT's jersey numbers?

Fred's Brim said...

I want Boise State to win because fuck those castrated turkeys

MR. F said...

Combining all the definitions: a drunk, poorly endowed, unattractive sexual predator, poor sportsman, noob, black male.

I don't understand definition 6. It is poorly worded.

NicJ said...

one of my favorite definitions from UD.

nomonym:

When you eat something and it tastes like something else. Things often taste like chicken but chicken rarely tastes like other things.

"This tuna tastes just like your mom."

"Dude, that's a nomonym!"

MR. F said...

HAHAHAHAHA. That is brilliant.

NicJ said...

if you type in neebs with an "S" you will get another interesting one.

Dusty Baker said...

Cowherd sat down next to me at The Counter last night while I was having a burger and watching the Dodgers game. He had just gotten back from the Dodgers game.

Fred's Brim said...

the Va Tech uniforms look like ones that Miami rejected

NicJ said...

did VT and BOise both get uniform redesigns?

NIKE im guessing.

Thats one large Logo on boise's helmet.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YOU SAW COWHERD AND DIDN'T ASK US TO SAY SOMETHING DEROGATORY TOWARDS HIM????

NicJ said...

@DB, did he tell you the numbers suggest that you should have had the chicken sandwich?

Dusty Baker said...

Cowherd was there with his lad, who was wearing a Kemp jersey. Do with this fact what you wish.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess if his kid is there you couldn't use 95% of the lines I have prepared for him.

MR. F said...

5% tasteful insults? I'd say you're slipping, MR. LASF.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF

95% of the things I wanted to say were in re Kemp, so I just decided to say nothing.

Fred's Brim said...

how has Boise gotten good? Where does the money come from? The Ore-Ida fortune?

NicJ said...

boise's ST looks pretty damn good.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

They canceled all academic programs there. It's just football now.

Fred's Brim said...

Frank Beamer wants to choke somebody

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought their potato stock finally skyrocketed.

Dusty Baker said...

Nats cap in the crowd!

Fred's Brim said...

wow those are some sad hillbillies

Spanky said...

That was too easy for Boise State

Fred's Brim said...

@DB
take THAT, Title IX!

Dusty Baker said...

That may be the first and only Title IX reference ever on SoSG. Nice!

Dusty Baker said...

I keep thinking this is Sunday, so a second ago I just got all freaked out that I was going to have to suffer through a Pod Rays camo Sunday uni before I realized it is Monday.

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

Maybe they'll break'em out all week to celebrate the rememberance of remembering 9/11

Dusty Baker said...

*shivers at jingoistic implications*

Fred's Brim said...

youch - nice closeline

NicJ said...

damn he just got hammered

NicJ said...

wow, what a run.

Mr. Customer said...

Hello, gamethread. What's shakin'?

Fred's Brim said...

No mosques near PetCo when the Padres are wearing camo!

Dusty Baker said...

Mr C up in dis bish.

NicJ said...

who the fuck cares if big ben isnt the captain anymore

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty trolling the GT tonight. Don't say anything bad about me.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

I didn't even know Big Ben was a captain until I knew he was no longer a captain. They still have captains in NFL?

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

If we don't,then she will KNOW we're lying.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I sometimes notice guys like Peyton with the big C on their jersey.

Fred's Brim said...

the C stands for something else

NicJ said...

or matt barkley, that looks really lame on a college uni BTW.

Mr. Customer said...

...and it ain't "Customer"

Orel said...

Pitching matchup corrected. Long weekend ending. Tears forming.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Get rid of the Seaward.

NicJ said...

WOW!!

Dusty Baker said...

Good point re Mrs Dusty, Mr C.

She asked about FB's hillbillies comment (which made me laugh incontrollably BTW), and I assured her that...yes, Virginia was chock full of hillbillies that should be mocked.

NicJ said...

seems like Boise get a lot of kids from the So Cal area.

Dusty Baker said...

Holy spit! Smurfs up in dis bish!

Fred's Brim said...

I hate fade patterns. They look so nice, but they are so low percentage. I think calling a fade is an ego thing with OCs

Dusty Baker said...

I was thinking that same thing, Nic. How they convince a young brother from LA to go play in - Boise? - what a recruiting coup.

Dusty Baker said...

Are you talking about the Padres now, FB?

Jason said...

@DB re: the other thread - Yes, I've had the Rope Swing. Not bad for the brewery's first lager style brew. I am looking forward to the Fall seasonal Nut Brown Ale.

As to th e debate on tanking, I have a hard time envisioning the circumstance when a protected pick will matter for the Dodgers. There is no way I can see Frank paying for both a type-A free agent and a mid-to-high first round pick. Since that depresses me to no end, I like to distract myself with winning baseball. And beer. Lots, and lots of beer. (beer status: Manny's, a local PNW unfiltered pale ale)

NicJ said...

haha, that shot of the young couple sniping at each other was classic.

Fred's Brim said...

@Mrs Dusty - outside of Northern Virginia, it is mega kuntry there!

NicJ said...

speaky of manny, anyone notice the sox are on a 7 game winning streak?

Fred's Brim said...

@DB - fading was never a choice for the Padres

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Jason - They did pay for Zach Lee. That's encouraging.

Besides, if the team does go after a big bat like Ned says it will, it's better knowing that at least the first round pick is protected. It's better than not having a protected pick, you have to admit.

Dusty Baker said...

I also told Mrs Dusty that it's ok for hillbillies to laugh at hillbilly jokes, like Jewish people telling Jewish jokes, etc.

Dusty Baker said...

Manny 3-5 today.

NicJ said...

go manny go

Paul said...

Cowherd on Friday "Utah may have won the game but it was a sloppy mess they didn't look good at all. Wait wait I getting another text from Kiffin. He loves me!! He texted it!!"

Cowherd Today "I don't really look to see how the teams do the first week. It is the first game. These are young kids"

Paul said...

Tomorrow He will say Va Tech is awful and It wasn't a road game for Boise State.

Jason said...

MANNY RAMIREZ IS THE FUTURE OF CHICAGO BEAT WRITER HACK PIECES!

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe MLASF should start a faux Twitter account to give Cowherd shit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BUT THE STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE, PAUL, THE STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE

NicJ said...

i love how cowherd can just change his opinion to seem right. I guess that is easier to do when you have no cohost to call you on your shit.

Jason said...

I hate to note it but Zach Lee did not accompany any type-A signings.

I will now go to a corner and cry.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB i may be a hillbilly but i have to admit I've never planted flowers in an old tire or toilet

Dusty Baker said...

How many writers will lose their jobs when Manny retires? many have made their careers out of belly-aching about him.

NicJ said...

@DB, no we dont need Cowherd coming in here and typing at us in all CAPS.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Nic - I don't know. Steve Mason still gets away with a lot of shit.

@Dusty - I could, but Cowherd would just eventually find out and come on SoSG, deriding my opinion with made-up facts and calling me a whore.

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of hillbillies, where is P Ditty?

Jason said...

I should also note that I'm more bitter than normal today. The rain and general grayness that is the Seattle fall and winter rolled in this morning.

NicJ said...

@MLASF- thats because john ireland is an idiot unless its anything but basketball.

Dusty Baker said...

There's a beer for that, Jason.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

John Ireland knows plenty! Like...how to spend per diem! And what Spero Dedes eats for dinner while the team is in Milwaukee!

NicJ said...

Ireland is just there to play the UCLA Colmes to Mason's USC Hannity

MR. F said...

=(

I'd say I'm more bitter than normal today, but bitterness is normal these days =(.

Paul said...

Va Tech is getting it movin.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mason plays to USC because he's a company man.

Dusty Baker said...

You know you're a SoSG nerd when you choose your browser based on how it operats in a Blogger-based GT.

NicJ said...

just like he was a die hard clippers fan until last year.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, funny how he hopped off the Clipper train right when their deal with the Clips was up.

Dusty Baker said...

Reporters being fans of any ream drives me batshit. One of reasons I don't listen to any of that tripe.

Paul said...

It almost looks like Va Tech has a douche bag Ed Hardy stripe on their helmets.

NicJ said...

mason's homerism towards USC drives me crazy. He used to talk shit about kiffin all day until he hopped back over to USC.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Except they're not reporters. They're guys on the radio talking about the local teams. Except when Ireland does sideline reports. And even then he doesn't do much.

Jason said...

Thanks, Dusty. I believe I am drinking that beer's 3rd cousin at the moment. I'm working my way through the family tree.

My best to Mrs. Dusty. May her foray into this forum not damage her love of th Dodgers or the Blue faithful!

*raises beer glass*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So when's the Light Cycle portion of the tournament?

NicJ said...

fuck yah!!

IDAHO POTATOES!!!

Paul said...

You know what also grows in Idaho? Meth.

Oh wait that is Fresno.

Dusty Baker said...

^team

True, MLASF. Not reporters. Of course, there are very few actual sports reporters out there left. Most are sports opinionists.

The same is true in news these days, too, sadly.

NicJ said...

@Paul, i havent seen an "Only buy Fresno made Meth" commercial yet.

Dusty Baker said...

It's amazing the amount of people who are Tweeting about how much they like these unis.

By amazing I mean scary.

Paul said...

Already have my postgame song.

Damn I wish I was your lover- Sophie B. Hawkins

Jason said...

Wall Street 2 could be the ultimate meta-movie. Greed is good! (I will now produce a shameless sequal 10 years too late to cash in on the current political and economic climate)

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

Also, let's do a bunch of demographic testing that shows we can get more women to go see the movie if we put a love interest in Wall Street II - more box office $$$!

Dusty Baker said...

137 comments and an hour til game time.

My we're both surly and multi-faceted.

Paul said...

@Nic

We are working on it. Fresno native Kevin Federline will be in it.

Mr. Customer said...

@Jason

I will produce a shameless squeal should the Giants somehow miss the playoffs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And it will still far exceed Basic Instinct 2.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Both the sequel and the squeal.

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange "field goal" you speak of?

MR. F said...

Laboring at work on Labor Day: surly factor +15

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't look forward to another season of Brent Musburger.

Spanky said...

The Kevin Federline from Clovis?

Spanky said...

P. Ditty sighting.

Fred's Brim said...

Fresno: there's a reason they don't call it Fresyes

Am I allowed to tell a Fresno joke?

Paul said...

@Spank

actually from Tarpey village. If Clovis wants to claim him. Wait who cares he is not associated with Fresno.

Paul said...

@FB

please do. I have a bunch of them.

NicJ said...

wasnt hout the one who got clocked last year by blount?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Nic - Yep.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Taylor's not getting good protection from the O-line.

Paul said...

Yeah he looks like Biff from back to the future.

Neeebs said...

My ears were burning.

You guys still loving my adoration for extra vowels?

Jason said...

I need a ruling: a fellow patron at the bar ordered a tequila-based drink which elicited a mock of derision from another local drunk about Labor Day implying the need to order American made forms of alcohol only (exact profane, and jingoistic, wording redacted for Mrs. Dusty's benefit). I tossed out a joke similar to "tequila is appropriate it were Day Labor Day!"

Inappropriate? Too on the nose?

MR. F said...

I don't understand...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID ESPN CAMERA ANGLE

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh go fuck yourself, Assburger.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LESS THAN 71 HOURS UNTIL REAL FOOTBALL

Spanky said...

Just tell the local drunk to drink his Milwaukee's Best and Shut the Fuck Up!

Or better yet, Call him a neeb

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we don't reach 200 comments by the time the Dodger game starts I will put a hole in my wall. I'll whore the thread if necessary.

NicJ said...

ehhhh thats quite a chasm to jump.

Spanky said...

We need to average one comment a minute

MR. F said...

MR. F said...

MR. F said...

MR. F said...

?

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

I had to go punch a wall, but now I'm back. Even if one were to somehow translate Labor Day meaning a time only to honor American labor, do you mean to tell me that this tea party fucker at your bar didn't get that it takes American/local labor to pour the tequila and keep the bar open (eg the barkeep and staff), to distribute the devil juice to bars and restaurants and shops, to transport it to those outlets, to design and produce advertisements with scantily clad women, etc.? What a neeb. Sucker punch that fool.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Zuh?

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Fuck the Jokies

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait, is the VT coach's name Beiber?

MR. F said...

Good use of Neeb, DB.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No, it's Beamer. Damn, I was hoping to mock him for that.

MR. F said...

Unnecessary capitalization there....

NicJ said...

lou holtz again. he is picking ND to come in during halftime and win the game.

Spanky said...

Yah, What Dusty said.

MR. F said...

I should try punching walls.

MR. F said...

Trying my best to whore out some comments.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

When did Granny Clampett join ESPN?

Dusty Baker said...

kill Kill KILL Lou Holtz!!

Mr. Customer said...

If there's whoring to be done, I shall do my part.

Spanky said...

I HATE LOU HOLTZ

MR. F said...

Lou Holtz is okay when he says good things about Cal.

I dunno I hardly ever watch TV.

Dusty Baker said...

LOU HOLTZ IS THE PAST OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

Spanky said...

Fucking Granny Clampett. HAHAHAHAHAHA

NicJ said...

dodgers dont even get a pregame show on kcal tonight?

beautiful

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lou Holtz only serves to tell stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time he caught the ferry to Shelbyville. He needed a new heel for m'shoe. So he decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So he tied an onion to his belt. Which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you'd say. Now where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that he had an onion tied to his belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Jason said...

@Dusty - I couldn't agree more. However, not 15 seconds after my post, yet a third patron pointed out that this minor disagreement was occurring in a pub that:

* Is owned by two British ex-pats (hey John and John!)

* Has a Union Jack hanging directly above said tea bagger's head

* Has Mr. C's favorite "Keep calm and carry on" signage displayed throughout

and, most importantly:

* Employing several local residents who pay taxes, spend locally and generally tolerate the right of a racist jackass to express his dying views of society.


Still, I like my Day Labor Day idea.

NicJ said...

i just watched the most hopeless round of family feud ever.

MR. F said...

Jason, I still don't understand:
'I tossed out a joke similar to "tequila is appropriate it were Day Labor Day!"'

MR. F said...

I'm watching a pretty crappy episode of the X-Files.

MR. F said...

Relatively speaking.

Mr. Customer said...

Keep calm and carry on, then.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Do the Midshipmen play Notre Dame this year?

MR. F said...

Really, this X-Files episode is going in strange places.

MR. F said...

Mulder: "You're not making any sense. Make sense to me." That's what I'm thinking about this episode.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

I initially read that as "misshapen"

Spanky said...

199

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They are a bit misshapen though.
