Post-Game 141 Thread: Six Underground

ASTROS 3, DODGERS 2

Six straight losses. digging us further underground. Ted Lilly had a bad pitch in the sixth inning that turned an uncommon 2-0 Dodgers lead into a more-common 3-2 deficit, and not even all the goodwill around John Lindsey's eagerly anticipated major league debut (PH for Lilly in the seventh; fly out to centerfield) could overcome a one-run deficit. Not the way the Dodgers are playing. Cue woman with the over-toothed grin.

Giants are up 4-1 in the fifth over the Padres, by the way. Shoot, even I am ready for some football at this stage.

PT just got me another point!!

MR. F said...

Damn bums.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

C'mon, Brett, I just need four more freakin' yards! 4! It's your fucking number, you southern ass!

MR. F said...

Come on Padres!

NicJ said...

god damn gints.

Spanky said...

A nice TD bomb sounds real good right now

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only if it comes from a running back.

NicJ said...

i think padres fans might of gotten a false sense of hope by beating us.

Spanky said...

More Points

Dusty Baker said...

OYSTER PUBES 2-run HR. 6-1 Gnats.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Crap, Favre's not getting the ball again.

karina said...

Sax, join the club, we love football now

NicJ said...

doesnt look like Min is getting the ball back. Unless they just give up a quick TD.

Dusty Baker said...

Ahh, got the reference now, Spanky. Good one. Love any Jane's reference.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least it's going to be all running from now on.

Paul said...

@Sax

re: the thing that I typed in the other place.

Go for it!

MR. F said...

@NicJ. Grammar correction: "might have gotten" not "might of gotten." "have" is a helping verb (for the main verb, "gotten"), while "of" is a preposition.

I only point this out for Karina.

NicJ said...

im typing on an iphone.

fuck grammar.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

wasn't the Steelers/Titans opener last year a low scoring affair?

Mr. Customer said...

Actually, it's more like the putrescence of the Dodgers has driven us into the embrace of football.

Dusty Baker said...

Actually, using gotten at all should be frowned upon in formal writing.

Spanky said...

I should have put Cutler as QB. He'll have a big game against the Lions.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But Cutler throws picks like no tomorrow. He's a serious fantasy risk.

karina said...

@Mr F that was very sweet, thank you very much.

Sorry, NicJ. Most of the auto-correction functions suck anyways

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That should be it.

NicJ said...

im jst guna strt uzin txt type.

Meaniebreanie said...

@Sax
Saw the picture of you posted from earlier today. You're looking good friend!

Spanky said...

But he should have big numbers with Martz's system

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WOOOO! SAINTS WIN!!!!

NicJ said...

15 points from two players, Meh.

Meaniebreanie said...

Even though The Saints won MB is still surly. Hartley KILLED ME! If I make it through this first week it will be a miracle.

Spanky said...

Not even 8:30 yet and nothing left to watch

karina said...

I can't believe I got 18 points tonight. Is it much?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's not about the system, it's about the accuracy of the arm. Until Cutler becomes consistently accurate, I won't trust him.

NicJ said...

expect more production out of peterson on a weekly basis. It was a tough defensive matchup for him tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

You rocked it tonight, Karina!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

AP didn't do much. But nobody really did much except for Shiancoe.

Dammit.

Dusty Baker said...

All news and no sports make Dusty a...something something.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Karina's still favored to win by 16 points. That's good.

Mr. Customer said...

@nicJ

0n1y teh 1337 5p33k n0w 4 u 5uxx0r5!

Paul said...

Typing on the iPhone is for lotnofs like me.

Mr. Customer said...

Didn't get torched by Colston. I can live with that.

NicJ said...

alright, time to go put some more pins in my Chris Johnson voodoo doll.

MR. F said...

I can haz l0lspeak?

Dusty Baker said...

Someone is going to get knofed in the robs if we keep this up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The real fun is Sunday, when we're all monitoring different players on different teams in different games.

Except for MB. She just has to watch the Cowboys game.

Spanky said...

Karina's going to put a hurtin' on P.Ditty.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think I need a new QB. Who wants to trade?

NicJ said...

i work 4 sundays a year.

Lucky me gets one of those this sunday.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That sucks, Nic.

Dusty Baker said...

Pay the Bat goes deep again for Frisco. 7-1

Spanky said...

@ MLASF

I'll trade you Mike Wallace(the football player not the guy from 60 minutes)

NicJ said...

McNabb can be made available, for a price.

MWHUAHAHAHA

Oh wait, this isnt 4 years ago.

Paul said...

Didn't catch much of the football game it looked like a slow game in soccer translation it was 2 to 1.5 Saints.

My personal highlight Carl fucking Weathers.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll be at a conference in Orlando all day Sunday, so no NFL watching/commenting for me.

MR. F said...

Gnats suck.

MR. F said...

60/40 chance I'll be working Sunday. If so, it'd be the 3rd Sunday in a row.

Then again, no me gusta el futbol americano.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker @Mr LASF @Spanky I got beginner's luck.

By the way, what does it mean I got favored to win by 16 points?

Mr LASF if I didn't decided that I loathe Favre, I could trade him for Jackson ;)

Meaniebreanie said...

Mr. LASF
I will be watching other games as I have Santana Moss, Tim Hightower, and Mohamed Massaquoi.

My love for the Cowboy's is going to either make me fly or put me 6 feet under : )

Steve Sax said...

Jeez, the Pods aren't even showing up by the way!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

60 minutes guy or no dice.

karina said...

^decide

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - That means if the projections are accurate and come to fruition, you will win by 16 points.

Spanky said...

Rocky Balboa on Telemundo. He has mexican Rocky accent too. HaHa. That was Antonio Tarver's biggest fight ever.

karina said...

@Mr LASF WOW! unbelievable!

NicJ said...

G14NTZ 4R3 T3H SuX

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Saints were a tough matchup for Favre anyways. I get some good matchups with my other players.

Spanky said...

@ MB

I'd have a coffin ready

NicJ said...

my match ups are all pretty brutal this week. I traded for gaffney strictly because he has a favorable matchup and everyone of my receivers were either old or facing a top 5 defense.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

NBC has switched from burning mattress coverage to burning land coverage.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My worst matchup is Ryan Grant against Philly. I'm not too worried there. With Rodgers, Grant should be in a great position to get some short runs for TDs.

Meaniebreanie said...

Spanky,
I'm not going down without one helluva fight!

NicJ said...

fires are my least favorite of the So Cal breaking news coverages. So pointless.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm just glad nobody's doing car chases anymore. I remember once a car chase took up the entire KTLA news broadcast. This was back when they had Hal Fishman, so the news on that channel was worth watching.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

How do you narrow down what your least favorite SoCal breaking news coverage topics are? There are so many, I don't know where to start.

Wait, I know - *turns off telly*

Spanky said...

@ Mlasf

Was that O.J.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No, OJ was during the day. Back in those days news at any hour other than 6:30, 10, and 11 was unheard of.

NicJ said...

car chases are my favorite.

press conferences blow.

hostage situations are interesting.

bomb threats are boring.

NicJ said...

structure fires rank above brush fires though.

MR. F said...

Did you guys see what happened in San Bruno (ie, near SFO)?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I enjoy fluff pieces, like learning about the Laker Girls every night for a month.

Spanky said...

What was I thinking picking Ochocinco as a comedy pick. Jokes on me.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Should've taken Tebow, Spanky.

Spanky said...

Hey Mlasf,

Your in-game smack board comments just posted

rbnlaw said...

Go on, Mr. F.

MR. F said...

Crazy ass fire. Explosion in a neighborhood. Bunches of houses went up in flames.

http://bit.ly/bXQQGl

rbnlaw said...

Nevermind. I just saw.

Big explosion; unlike the Dodger offense.

I thought we had a right-handed batter who was a major threat. That's not Podsednickerdoodle is it?

MR. F said...

Where'd everybody go?

Mr. Customer said...

Like cockroaches when a light goes on.

Spanky said...

This PGT got abandoned as fast as a crackhead does it's child.

Steve Sax said...

Spanky, Mr. Customer, Mr. F:

Next round's on us.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm still here. Had a dog issue I needed to work through. Pug = ok now.

Beer status: empty

Steve Sax said...

Spanky, you had an extra apostrophe there, btw. You lose your free drink.

Steve Sax said...

Another Dos Equis Amber for Dusty!

Dusty Baker said...

*slams XX*

Spanky said...

Damn, I never catch the breaks.

Paul said...

I am having trouble moving around this ESPN fantasy football site.

Paul said...

I have been dry since Dylan Thomas.

Paul said...

Nice to see Neeebs mom made the board.

Spanky said...

@ Paul

Mlasf was having issues on there too.

Dusty Baker said...

The ESPN fantasy site is so complicated and incredible in a lot of ways. Except that the pages seem to be being served off a single Commodore 64.

Paul said...

Yeah I wanted to post a pic for my profile but that site is more frustrating than a strip club. Now I know why I have been avoiding it.

Dusty Baker said...

That site makes me feel like John Lindsey in the on deck circle.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

Dylan Thomas is pleased to be your designated drinker for the evening.

Spanky said...

I think you can only put a personal pic or risk getting axed from the site. I said why bother. I just want to play not deal with B.S.

Paul said...

@Mr. C

I shall return tomorrow buzzed, DT has me covered and probably DB.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

No doubt. After all, he does hold the record.

Dusty Baker said...

Breaking DSBG news!

Forced to watch Project Runway (vote was 2-1 in the household). Trailer for latest shitty teen flick shown called "Easy A." MDIL yelled "That's DSBG!" during one scene in the trailer.

Sure enough:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1282140/fullcredits#cast

Paul said...

tomorrow is legal professionals day...oh boy the buzz factor just tripled.

Mr. Customer said...

Gird your loins, brother.

Mr. Customer said...

And now, I am officially no longer tired.

Shit.

rbnlaw said...

More breaking news:
Spotted in our usual Thursday night burger place with the really cheap beer:
Angels reliever, Francisco Rodriguez.

No, the other one. This one looked like just another schlub (a Spanish speaking schlub, but a schlub nonetheless).
Apparently someone who works for the Angels talked him into coming in, and someone else tweeted it because the place was packed.

Bloody hell.

Mr. Customer said...

El Schluberito?

Mr. Customer said...

If it were the other one, sie sollten ihn auf den Schwanz treten.

Steve Sax said...

Achtung, Baby.

Spanky said...

I'm going out gently into the goodnight. Buenas Noches!
