NFL Playoffs Day 3 Thread

Ravens at Steelers, 1:30p.

Packers at Falcons, 5p.

I didn't even know that there were other playoff games besides the Jets-Patriots game. But I'm sure some of you will watch, anyway.

PLAY-OFFS your talking about PLAYOFFs

My team is out and ffl is over so need to pay attention

Dusty Baker said...

Still one of best modern sports clips.

I want to go to my sports bar to watch the games. I also want to ceaselessly and pointlessly yack in this space. Hmmmm....

Is it inappropriate to take an iPad into the bar so that I can accomplish both objectives?

Steve Sax said...

Not at all DB. What's the local hangout?

Fernie V said...

DB u got wifi or 3G ipad and would u recommend the one you got or the other

Eric Karros said...

Peyton Manning threw 4 picks that day

Eric Karros said...

How was he not down?

Eric Karros said...

Your other left elbow

Mr. Customer said...

Absolutely acceptable at the bar.

Paul said...

At a sports bar yes at a dive bar probably not. At a hotel bar it is required.

Paul said...

Love my new iPhone but this case makes it look like Darth Vader's pager.

Suppose to protect if the kid throws it or more likely when I throw it when Broxton blows a save.

Spank said...

When did Omar Epps start coaching the Steelers?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Spanky: http://youtu.be/3EVDGeEwhxE

Dusty Baker said...

I have the iPad with wifi + 3G. Can't say enough good things about it, and I've been very pleased with the 3G. I'm a person who can't stand not to be connected so there was no question re getting the 3G. Having said that lota of places of places have free wifi these days, incl the tavern I'm at now.

@Sax- T Boyle's Tavern in Pasadena. Nice little joint opened a yr or so ago by a buddy of mine who used to bartend at my old local that unfortunately closed. (No fault of mine)

Spank said...

@ Czar
I missed that one

Spank said...

@ DB

Ay si,Muy chingon!

trans: You think yous a bad-ass?!

*powers down apple II*
(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

@ Spanky - get back to playing Castle Wolfenstein, chingada!

Dusty Baker said...

Man that Apple II comment keeps cracking me up.

Dusty Baker said...

Cut yer hair, Polamualumala!

Paul said...

Steelers you are getting a first half bitch slap.

Eric Karros said...

21 unanswered points

Spank said...

Todd Heap up in dis bish! Oh Snap,FF is over.

*kicks rocks*

*misses*

Paul said...

Big Ben the abuser getting abused.

Eric Karros said...

Nice 3rd down conversion.

I'm not sure who I want to win this game.

Steve Sax said...

I didn't know the Ravens had an offense.

UCLA hoops down by three at the half at Oregon.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm fairly certain a Ray Rice fumble is one of the signs of the Apocalypse.

Fernie V said...

@ db Omar epps comment has me

Dusty Baker said...

We got ourselves a game!

Eric Karros said...

geez, turnover city

Steve Sax said...

UCLA hoops with a win!

Dusty Baker said...

Give us a limerick, Spank.

Eric Karros said...

"Live to Dance" touted as "America's most exciting new dance show."

You think there's enough qualifiers in that promo?

Eric Karros said...

And just in case the qualifier trifecta of "America's," "new," and "dance" isn't enough, the "most exciting" superlative isn't even an objective metric.

Must be CBS's legal department at work.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Let's give those new OT rules a little try.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit, I wanted OT.

Dusty Baker said...

Me too on OT. Now I have to go home. Booooooooo!

But wait....there's another game.

Spank said...

Who's going to be around for the second game? I gotta buy some floppy disks but I'll be back in a few.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Spanky - Kaypros are a bitch to shop for, aren't they?

Orel said...

Spank: I recommend Elephant Memory Systems disks. Try the new 5.25" format!

Orel said...

Bloopalicious!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Josh must have run the gamut of emotions on that play.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I've never seen that, the LB wrapping up a QB, not bringing him down, but still getting a sack.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

I have several pages of BASIC that you can type in then play Brick Out. You'll have to get a tape recorder drive if you want to save the game, though. Otherwise, you'll have to type it in again each time you want to play and have turned the computer off in between.

Spank said...

Spank app for TracFone coming soon.

BTW,I'm taking the Falcons 24-17

Dusty Baker said...

I can't tell you how useless a motor oil commercial is to me. Do a lot of people still change their own oil?

Dusty Baker said...

TD!

What a runback. Wow.

Spank said...

That was a long kickoff return

Eric Karros said...

Nice! 1st down at the 15ish

Dusty Baker said...

15ish rhymes with bish.

Eric Karros said...

Green Bay at the 3ish.

3ish rhymes with and looks like Bish.

Dusty Baker said...

Whoooooa, duuuuude.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait where the hell did Packers score the second TD?

Eric Karros said...

when they were at the 3ish, kuhn ran it in.

Eric Karros said...

IIII NNNN TTTT!

Spank said...

Looked like he slipped on the NFL insignia in the endzone...idiot

Dusty Baker said...

Saw that TD.

What a friggin catch!

Eric Karros said...

James Jones is huge

Spank said...

That was nice

Josh S. said...

Emotional status: Happy at the moment, but still nervous as hell.

Eric Karros said...

ooh I thought I saw a pick six on that one.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There's EK's pick-6.

Orel said...

Joe Buck actually got excited on that interruption!

Spank said...

That's a shame

Josh S. said...

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!

Orel said...

"And this loud dome is dead silent."

Eric Karros said...

Your move, Nostradamus...

Eric Karros said...

10 point turnaround at the end of the half!

But enough about Superbowl XLIII.

Eric Karros said...

(rimshot)

Eric Karros said...

Somehow this game went from 14-7 Atlanta halfway through the 2nd quarter to 28-14 Green Bay at the half.

Orel said...

Could Michael Strahan use more clich├ęs?

Steve Sax said...

Congrats EK on your Steelers!

Eric Karros said...

Thanks Sax. Though I dumped the Steelers last summer and decided to root for the Packers.

If they meet in the Superbowl it will be a great sports story I'm sure the media will pick up on.

Eric Karros said...

How many subway spokes people can you name before the 2nd half kickoff?

Eric Karros said...

^No need to comment their names. Just going through them in your head is sufficient.

Orel said...

JARED

oops, too late

Eric Karros said...

Jared will always outshine any celebrity/star spokespeople they hire.

Steve Sax said...

Could Michael Strahan deliver my pizza? I'm holding my katana.

And, my penis.

Orel said...

The Fox robot is named Cleatus.

Orel said...

foul, illegal formation on SoSG Sax

Eric Karros said...

Cleatus has hops

Eric Karros said...

Aaron Rodgers, please stop diving headfirst, even if for a touchdown.

Unless it's a game-winning touchdown in the playoffs.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Sax - So it's just another Saturday night, is what you're saying?

Eric Karros said...

Actually, it's just another night is what he's saying.

Eric Karros said...

Did he make a football move?

Dusty Baker said...

I left to walk the dog, and this is what I come back to?

Eric Karros said...

Holy cow Green Bay looks good.

Orel said...

"He's got a rifle for an arm."

Unlike Sax.

Dusty Baker said...

Got some pie on the way. And some vino opened. And Mrs Dusty and MDIL are in OC tonight. What I call "Dusty Time."

Dusty Baker said...

I don't give a shit about these punk kids

Orel said...

Save your fork, there's pie!

Orel said...

Dusty, you should draw yourself a nice bubble bath.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

Hah! I'm also going to eat a quart of ice cream and watch some old Sex and the City Episodes, then sit around in my PJs talking on the phone bitching about nothing to my friends.

Dusty Baker said...

I was hoping Neeebs' mom could draw my bath for me.

Dusty Baker said...

Half a yard short on the onside kick.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet mother of shit...can Congress quickly pass a law to keep that Adam Sandler moving from being released?

Why, Hollywood, why???

Eric Karros said...

Because Brooklyn Decker's in it

Dusty Baker said...

Can't they just charge me $12.75 to see her bush but not make the movie?

Orel said...

"Brooklyn's Finest"

Eric Karros said...

Speaking of great ,pvoes, The Love Guru is on TBS right now

Dusty Baker said...

Ready for that bubble bath now, Mrs. Neeebs.

Eric Karros said...

^movies (my hands were not set right)

Dusty Baker said...

Through strange coincidence, I grew up with the guy who co-wrote Love Guru. He won a Worst Screenplay Razzy award for that work.

Dusty Baker said...

Sounds like Sax's hand is set right.

Eric Karros said...

Wow. One more turnover and Atlanta will have as many as Indianapolis had in the game that inspired Mora's rant.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Congrats to the Packers.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn that was a sweet goal. Kings up 4-2.

Dusty Baker said...

Congrats to the Packards.

You were cool old cars.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Congrats to Todd Packer. Easily David Koechner's second-best character.

Dusty Baker said...

Also send out props to Hewlett-Packard. You made the technology that brought Shrek to life.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey I don't watch a ton of hockey, hence haven't noted the Kings' unis for awhile...but am I the only one who doesn't like the ones they're wearing tonight? Gimme some mean, scary looking black and white shit.

Josh S. said...

Hot damn, I love a good ass-kicking. As long as my team's not the one getting kicked.

This comment is being brought to you live from CityWalk.

Dusty Baker said...

How is/was that show/taping you went to see, Josh?

ps- Dos Equis on draught at Camacho's at City Walk.

Spank said...

Hockey?! Hockey?! Hockey?!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I love the old-school unis. Reminds me of hockey from when it once was.

Dusty Baker said...

I don't know of any word other than gay to describe the post-game ceremony.

My god, what the hell happened to this sport? A friendly lion on a four-wheeler high-fiving stars of the game with some appropriately retro music playing in the background?

Dusty Baker said...

So are these throwback unis just for tonight? Or an entire movement?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

From what I've read I believe the Kings will wear them for only three games.
