Josh S. said...

SoSG Fantasy Football will generate more comments than all three games combined.

What time does Twins/Yankees start?

Dusty Baker said...

Is that a challenge, Josh S? I mean, a challenge for us to generate inane comments re baseball so as to prove you wrong?

Alas, I think you are correct. Challenge canceled.

Dusty Baker said...

187 on yesterday's Mega Thread.

I mean that's how many comments there were.

Dusty Baker said...

Hope Colston's rob is okay; I need some points out of him.

Dusty Baker said...

Pretty widely reported now that Dodgers have signed Tim Wallach to another contract and that he will likely be moved up to the big leagues to play some role there (hitting coach)?

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Let's hope that's true. The last hitting coach sucked.

Oh wait. . .

rbnlaw said...

And I may be late to comment on this, but just let me tell you how happy I was Friday night about the time I saw kayakers in McCovey Cove fishing out a baseball.

Suck it Gnats.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I remember that classic "Ultra-Thread vs. Mothra." Great flick.

Dusty Baker said...

And then Podszilla came in and kicked both they asses until he came down with plantar fasciatis.

Dusty Baker said...

^fasciitis

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So when do the Mormons get here?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is an LDS thread, right?

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all
Are you ready for some football?

Mr. Customer said...

Good morning, fellow village idiots!

Dusty Baker said...

KFP out of the lineup for Jints.

Spanky said...

Who's got the Alka-Seltzer?


*desperately tries to open both eyes at the same time*

Dusty Baker said...

Peyton Manning on the telly right off the bat this morning. Come on, 4 TDs, no whammys!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Holy shit, Spero Dedes is calling Colts/Chiefs!

Dusty Baker said...

I know, MLASF, it freaked me out. In a good way.

#Lakers

Spanky said...

Fuck, Where's the remote?

Dusty Baker said...

Look in the fridge for the remote, Spank.

Dusty Baker said...

Wagner out. Saito-san in for Dirty South.

karina said...

@Spanky since you threatened me with your big toenail, I won't help you with your hangover :(

What night last night!I should have stayed here snarking

karina said...

I just came across this on tumblr, it might amuse you:

12 completely unnecessary (like Giants fans) books

http://bit.ly/bQbjml

well, my bday is coming up, I wouldn't mind if I receive a copy of "How to avoid huge ships, second edition"

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Karina

Dusty Baker said...

What did you get into, Karina?

Dusty Baker said...

Rays up 1-0 bottom 2nd.

Spanky said...

There is a baseball game on right now?



(pukes)

Dusty Baker said...

There sure is, Spanky. This is the freakin' ULTRA-THREAD!

MeanieBreanie said...

It's the mother of all mother's.

Dusty Baker said...

Am I supposed to have a pic of my dog as my avatar? I feel left out.

*eats lunch by himself in school cafeteria*

Spanky said...

It's going to be a dog day afternoon

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB - Join the club. It's time to add Frankie to the mix.

Spanky said...

I was thinking of taking a pic of a neighborhood mutt and use it as my avatar just to fit in



*sits under a tree alone*

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
One of your many fish will do.

Josh S. said...

So I had Sammy as my avatar this whole time and he wasn't even on the roster? Did I jinx BWag?

Dusty Baker said...

Frankie up in dis bish.

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - Frankie is a handsome boy!

Dusty Baker said...

Cheers, MB. He's a fine lad.

rbnlaw said...

Colts/Chiefs is a battle of ineptitude.

No pics of dogs for my avi.

*steals someone's lunch money*

Spanky said...

Did someone say fish?

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
Cool, what are they? Are you raising them for your fish runs or consumption?

Spanky said...

Tejas is choking

Spanky said...

@ Meanie

2 goldfish,a dragon tailed koi,and a ghost fish.I had a second Ghost fish the size of a hand that went to the great aquarium in the sky on Friday.

MeanieBreanie said...

Sorry for the loss of your ghost fish :(

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry for your loss, Spanky.

karina said...

Hello CJ!

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SF: I'd also been considering the LDS - Mormon connection but couldn't figure out how to rope that into a thread...

karina said...

I'm so sorry for you loss of your lovely Ghost Fish, Spank.

I'm also sorry for any upcoming loss you might face too. Notice I'm talking in hypothetical terms.

Steve Sax said...

By the way, I've been up in NoCal this weekend, asking the few Giants fans I see if that Game 2 was a crushing backbreaker or an instantaneous deathblow.

Their choice.

karina said...

Do your fishes have names, Spanky?

MeanieBreanie said...

@Sax
What's the reaction been when you've posed the question?

Dusty Baker said...

God dang, AL games are slow.

Dusty Baker said...

Longo goes long and the Rays are in the driver's seat.

Spanky said...

@ Karinas 11:47 comment

*extends the middle finger*


No names for fish.That is to hardcore.

karina said...

@Steve Sax 11:49 AM this is official, I love you.

Jason said...

@Sax, 11:47: Perhaps a crack about Giants fans wetting their undergarments?

Dusty Baker said...

Beer status: Sam Adams Octoberfest

Spanky said...

Fuck fantasy football. Start the gnat game already

karina said...

Dusty a couple of things: Frankie is a very cool and gorgeous pup! and about last night, the problem was almost everyone was getting into deep trouble but me. I'm a nice and well-behaved girl.
Example: drunken guy groping every women in every lady part possible, I hit and pushed him a couple of times, but in the end, guy was so violent he broke everything fragile at his hand and his younger brother's forehead with JUST ONE punch. Everything went downhill from there and my friend wouldn't open the door :(

karina said...

Spanky, you can still win, at least you're not Paul, Mr C is murdering Paul's team, it's very sad

MeanieBreanie said...

Mark Clayton got carted off the field.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa, K! What a night. Yikes.

Sounds like a crowd you maybe shouldn't run with in the future given the violence and the lady part grabbing.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Sounds like quite an "adventure".

The FF score isn't quite as bad as is seems, all but one of my players are in the early game

Spanky said...

Thanks for the pep talk Karina. Unfortunately the reality is that I only have my QB and K left to play.I threw the dice and crapped out.

@ Meanie

"Mark Clayton got carted off"

(cries alongside)

MeanieBreanie said...

So far Brandon Lloyd has been my only bright spot in the early games. The rest of my team is curled in the fetal position.

Dusty Baker said...

How's the hangover, MB?

MeanieBreanie said...

DB
Once I started to drink again I felt fine. Thanks for asking ;~)

Dusty Baker said...

Funny how that works, MB.

karen said...

Greetings Boys and Girls!!

Looks like I've come in late today

@Spanky--I'm so sorry about your loss

@Dusty Baker--Frankie is a very handsome dude. My pug is Karleigh. I'll make her my next avi

@MB--Nikkita's eyes look like a hypnotic blue. She's beautiful

@Karina--The mother in me came out when I read about what happened last night. I agree with DB. This does not sound like a good crowd to be hanging with

GO BRAVES. Jeez, that feels weird to say.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Karen
It's rather laid-back today. You're not late. Welcome to the fray.

Dusty Blue is handsome. I can only imagine Karleigh. The pic of Nikita is old. I've got to get a better one. Baron is next if I can get him to pose. This blog is turning into the pets of SoSG.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

I usually have a mind like a steel trap (unless it's remembering Mrs Dusty's grocery list). Did you tell me before that you had a pug? If so, I misplaced that bit of knowledge but will now re-file it.

karen said...

@DB--I mentioned it when Frankie was having to have his eye drops. I think we talked about pugs and their eye problems

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Ah, right. I remember now. Sorry for that.

BTW the intense eyedrop regimen that took about 2.54 yrs off my life ended up working well. There's hardly even any scarring on his eye. He's still a bug-eyed freak, though!

karen said...

I sure hope that by rooting for the Rangers I haven't brought the Dodger curse down upon them.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karen
The Rangers fans are absolutely ecstatic that they have made it this far. You couldn't put a curse on them as there has been one on them for so many years. It looks like it has finally lifted.

karen said...

@DB--I had my first pug when I lived in Palm Springs. She got sand in her eye and it scratched her retina. She ended up losing her sight in that eye but it never slowed her down. I'm glad things turned out so well with Frankie's eye adventure.

Spanky said...

Damn gotta go run an errand. Spit out some HATE for me Y'all.

Thanks for the nice words about the fish.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

When Frankie was a puppy, one of our cats scratched him in the eye. Nearly lost the eye but worked out okay in the end. Still has deep scarring there. SInce then of course we've made sure the cats' claws were trimmed. The recent injury happened in the OTHER eye so we were not happy that he had the potential to have not one but two scarred retinas.

Dusty Baker said...

Rays take game 4. Strange series. Who wants this?

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB
Makes me think of the Tim McGraw song - How bad do you want it?

karen said...

@DB--No wonder this last problem took 2.54 years off your life!

Dusty Baker said...

Regret that I'm not up on my Tim McGraw.

karen said...

Even though I'm rooting for the Braves, I have to say, I hate that tomahawk chop!

Spanky said...

EAT SHIT GNATS



slimed my way out of a mix

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB
I'm a hybrid, half rock n roll and half redneck. As a southern boy I'm surprised you don't know your country.

karen said...

@MB--I thought I was the only country music fan here

Spanky said...

My last 2 players already have as many points as the rest of my team


(cries)

MeanieBreanie said...

Karen, I'm all over the board.

Dusty Baker said...

Dallas already down 10-0??? Well, shit.

karen said...

SUCK THAT HUFF

Dusty Baker said...

I know my country up until about 1993. So, the good country before it got all poppy and over-produced.

MeanieBreanie said...

Vince Young is getting off!

Dusty Baker said...

^Also before country got so damned pro-war, jingoistic, with us or you're a terrorist, wearing yellow ribbons kind of stuff.

MeanieBreanie said...

Given the last comment I can tell you're definitely not a fan of Toby Keith.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

That's exactly who I was thinking of!

Dusty Baker said...

Tim Hudson looks a bit flustered to start the game.

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB
He's from Oklahoma. The man can't help himself.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

That's exactly why I live thousands of miles from Oklahoma! Can't get far enough away from that shitheap.

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB
At least Arkansas is beautiful! Agreed that OK is a shit hole.

Dusty Baker said...

Also, OK has 3.2% alcohol beer. Enough reason to hate Hate HATE!

Orel said...

What up Oprah!

Spanky said...

Heyward is not good

Orel said...

Lee on, McCann up, 2 out, bot 1

karen said...

Hey Orel!

MeanieBreanie said...

Cowboy's defense is sucking today. I'm ready to drop kick the whole bunch from Arlinton to Plano.

MeanieBreanie said...

^Arlington

Spanky said...

From Katy to Waco

Orel said...

Hey Karen, cute pup! Love the canine energy around here.

So, who has that Packers kicker who missed the last-minute FG?

Orel said...

Giants left the bases loaded in the 1st? Against Hudson???

Orel said...

Fontenot triple. Great.

Spanky said...

Fuck

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Orel - nobody has fessed up to having the GB kicker.

@Spank
Katy is part of Houston. Is that what you meant to say?

Spanky said...

No, I was just name dropping

Orel said...

Heyward 2 inches from making that catch.

Orel said...

Ha ha, MB. Was at the gym and saw some random dude curse as the kick was missed. Automatically assumed he was in a FF league.

Spanky said...

Idiots

Orel said...

Bobby Cox jogs pretty well for an old guy.

Orel said...

Brooks Conrad, you doofus. 1-0 Giants.

Orel said...

T. Hudson with the full layout catch of Sanchez's bunt!

MeanieBreanie said...

Orel - hat's off for hitting the gym today. Satan's sister is drinking to chase away last night's hangover. I need to be at the gym. You are an inspiration ;~)

Spanky said...

nice play hudson

Spanky said...

What the hell is happening to Dallas?

MeanieBreanie said...

Screw the Giants - both baseball and football.

Romo is going to have one helluva long day. This calls for more wine.

Orel said...

Nice to see the Giants and Braves fighting for the privilege of getting steamrolled by the Phillies.

Dusty Baker said...

Did Cowboys really just have a 4th and 31?

Spanky said...

I saw a 3rd and 34ytg

Orel said...

Thanks, MB. Sunday is yoga day, so there was enough eye candy to keep me entertained.

karina said...

@Mr C @Dusty @karen don't worry, those people were HER friends not mine. Anyhow, it was her farewell party, she's moving to Canada.

Karen, you have a great good-looking pup.

I've found another similitude between us: it seems lots of us wear glasses and it also seems a lot of us are pet lovers too!

karina said...

My kudos to you Orel, working out on Sunday, eye candy or not!

Spanky said...

Brees threw an INT. Asshole

Dusty Baker said...

Hudson throwing fewer strikes than Dotel.

Orel said...

How many pitches does Hudson have?

Spanky said...

You know your team sucks when your kicker leads the team in points

Orel said...

Jonathan Sanchez won't hold the Braves scoreless. Can't happen.

Spanky said...

Dee-Ahz not Die-Ass

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

Actually it is pronounced the first way. That's the way his family says Diaz. Weird, I know.

Orel said...

Wake up, Atlanta offense!

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

I know.I'm directing my comments at him. I've never heard anyone pronounce their name like that

Dusty Baker said...

What is this Captain Morgan Lime Bite stuff? You pour it in your beer? Sounds gross.

On the other hand, sounds like fun.

Orel said...

I'm drinking tea right now. I should probably switch to beer, no?

MeanieBreanie said...

@Orel - you can bet if we ever have a yoga class together I will have my eye on you while in downward dog :~)

Glad you enjoyed the sights.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

*steps out of way*

*encourages negative comments directed toward Diaz*

karina said...

Guys, one question before the action starts:

is it weird to want to learn country music so bad and at the same time, being lukewarm about the music itself?

Dusty Baker said...

Is that Bigelow Green Tea you're having, Orel?

karina said...

@Orel I'm going to prepare my fifth cup of tea of the day, it's only 5 pm

Orel said...

Posey reaches on a squibber off Hudson's glove. Great.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
The more you drink the more country becomes enjoyable.

Orel said...

Tom Verducci holds his mic like a bouquet of flowers.

Spanky said...

Bean this bastard NOW

Spanky said...

Strikeout. even better

Orel said...

But my DD is terrible! I will sweat and grunt a lot to distract.

No Bigelow, some herbal something or other. But only because we're out of Trader Joe's decaf green.

Orel said...

UJTD

Orel said...

@Karina "is it weird to want to learn country music so bad and at the same time, being lukewarm about the music itself?"

Is it weird to want to be Willie Nelson while not particularly liking his music?

MeanieBreanie said...

Braves coming up to bat. Redeem theyself!

karina said...

@Oreal I meant learning to dance country music :(

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I can do the Achy Breaky

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
Dancing to it is far more enjoyable than the music itself. The same rule applies; the more you drink the more enjoyable it becomes.

Dusty Baker said...

I can't picture you line dancing, Karina.

karen said...

@Karina--I don't think it's weird. The dances are alot of fun.

Dusty Baker said...

It would be funny to hear Josh or Mr C say "The dances are a lot of fun."

Dusty Baker said...

Cowboys climbed back in it thanks to a TD by R Williams, who was, coincidentally, a last second add to my fantasy team.

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB - Don't think that your move went unnoticed.

MR. F said...

Hello everybody.

Are dog avatars the new "in" thing?

karen said...

@DB--I guess it must be a girl thing.

karen said...

Greetings MrF!!

Orel said...

SoSG Fest 2: line dancing?

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Mr. F
You should add TJ as your avatar and join the crowd. The bear sort of counts.

@Orel
Line dancing and Two Stepping only after the crowd has been liquored up.

karen said...

Bravo bats need to find their mojo

Orel said...

Sanchez is pulling a Lincecum.

Orel said...

Oh, there will be liquoring up.

Dusty Baker said...

"SoSG Fest 2: line dancing"

*shivers*

There is not enough liquor in the world to get me to participate in such an undertaking.

Orel said...

@DB "There is not enough liquor in the world to get me to participate in such an undertaking."

I view this as a challenge.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Orel
I would definitely head out to CA to catch it. That is, if the sons deemed me worthy to attend. My essays leave a lot to be desired.

MR. F said...

Oh MB. I would but then that would require me to change my avatar, and I just can't do that!

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

I will accept your challenge.

karina said...

@Spanky Achy Breaky?

@Dusty Baker I was in dancing classes since I was 3 'till 17, so I guarantee this girl doesn't know about two left foot and lack of coordination

@karen dancing is fun, all the time!

Also Dusty, I'm under the impression Mr C doesn't dance, like, ever.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr F has almost never changed his avatar. That would definitely send ripples through the force if he did so.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Mr.F
I can accept that. Does your bear have a name?

karina said...

Mr F, is your avatar part of a promise?

Dusty Baker said...

Sometimes Mr C and I have a nice slow dance together.

MeanieBreanie said...

It's weird to see Marion Barber wear pink gloves.

Spanky said...

@ karina

It's a dance. You Tube it

Spanky said...

Did you lend Barber yours Meanie?

karen said...

We need to harness our HATE people! The Braves are letting this one slip away!

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU DIE-ASS

MeanieBreanie said...

They look like the liners I wear with my pink boxing gloves.

MB is a happy camper with that Romo to Austin touchdown as both are on my fantasy team ;~)))

Orel said...

Did realize Sanchez was throwing a no-hitter until Dylan Hernandez tweeted it.

That's right A NO-HITTER.

Orel said...

Er, didn't.

MeanieBreanie said...

A Sanchez no hitter is totally unacceptable. Things have got to change.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker no wonder sometimes Mr C's toes are in pain

Spanky said...

WTF are you swinging at DUMMY

karina said...

No-hitters in the post-season is a weird trend, right Sanchez?

NicJ said...

my fantasy team has gone to the dogs.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
What is your favorite type of dance?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Braves! If I wanted to watch a spineless, inept offense this bad I'd just watch old Dodger games from the 2010 season.

Dusty Baker said...
