Pro Bowl (And Gramnys) Thread
— DrewM

The Pro Bowl is the Open Thread of the football world so combining the two seems to make sense.

Apparently the Grammys are on as well. I'm pretty sure I've never heard of most of these people, let alone listened to their music, so I'll be skipping that. Yeah, I'm getting old. Now get off my lawn!

      Yeah how about that 50 yard TD pass by Aaron Rogers where the left DE just pulled up and stopped and let him throw the ball.  I don't need to keep watching after that.   Maybe if they made the game count, just a little, like they did with the MLB all-star game, by making the outcome count for something, they players would care about winning, and it would be something worth watching.  Not as it is now.  Of course, it's still better than the Grammys......

There was something awhile back about celebs not paying taxes on the swag bags. They're supposed to because the bags are worth thousands of dollars and of course no one ever did. I think they had to stop giving the bags out for awhile lest they run afoul of the IRS.

Myrtle Beach has gotten a bit stuffy in the past few years - trying to be more "family friendly", I guess.  We live about four hours from there, it's a nice day trip but I wouldn't plan a vacation there if I could go somewhere else.

Oops. I blame 8 years of the same tired old re-posting of the last administration for that mistake. 

Damn, I have to stop listening to Obama. 

So here's a scary thought. As the reviewer points out Cameron sold this movie to the public because he knows how to hit the mushy parts of people's brains. The plot is not only bad, but offensive. And Cameron's ilk spend day after day preforming the same assault on the American electorate with similar methods...

Posted by: Peaches at January 31, 2010 08:41 PM (9Wv2j)

Nope. I got taken out to lunch even after I told him I didn't want to work there. I didn't ask about getting paid. I'm pretty sure he would have said no.


It's been quite a few years since I lived back east, but isn't it kinda muggy in Florida and the Carolinas in July... or is that more towards August?

FL is muggy all through summer. And I think it's great. But I'm a freak who loves humidity.

My hair is impervious to everything. You can put an entire can of aerosol hairspray in it and it'll still fall straight. Nice for humidity, sucks when I want to style it for a special occasion.

113 #92 So here's a scary thought. As the reviewer points out Cameron sold this movie to the public because he knows how to hit the mushy parts of people's brains. The plot is not only bad, but offensive. And Cameron's ilk spend day after day preforming the same assault on the American electorate with similar methods...

I'm going to write a script for Avatar 2.  It'll reveal that the Na'vi are actually the offspring of Poseidon and some other Greek creature and that they plan to enslave humanity after the downfall of the Gods.  It'll be fun seeing a giant blue Titan, Oceanus, and Kratos rampaging through Pandora.

117 OT, Who Dat?

Cajun in Hell

A Cajun who died went to hell.
The devil assigned him the usual punishment...put him in the mass pit where
the heat was melting others. The devil came back sometime later surprised
to find the Cajun just sitting around, not even misting, much less sweating.
"How come you're not so much as sweating here where everyone else is
screaming for relief from the heat?"
The Cajun laughed and said, "Man, I was raised in the bayous of Sout
Looziana. Dis ain't nothin' but May in Morgan City to me!"

The devil decided to really put the Cajun through it. He put him in a sealed
off cave in the pit with open blazes and four extra furnaces blasting. When
he came back, days later, the Cajun was sitting pretty, had barely begun to
bead up with sweat. The devil was outraged.
"How is this possible!? You should be melted to a shrieking puddle in
these conditions!."
The Cajun laughed even harder than before. "Hey, man! I done tole you.
I was raised in Sout Looziana. You tink dis is heat?! Dis ain't nothin'
but August in Cow Island !"

So the devil thought, 'Alright, a little reverse ought to do the trick.' He
put the Cajun into a corner of hell where no heat ever reached. It was
freezing and to add to the Cajun's misery, he added massive icebergs and
blasting frozen air. When he returned, the Cajun was shivering, ice hung
from every part of him but he was grinning like it was Christmas.

Exasperated, the devil asked "HOW!? How is it possible?! You're
impervious to heat and here you sit in conditions you can't be used
to...freezing cold and yet you're happier than if you were in heaven.
WHY?!"

The Cajun kept grinning and asked, "Don't dis mean de Saints won da Super
Bowl?"

194 Yeah, Rum, but Michelle is far from what I would call beautiful. So, I have lower expectations for her. Of all the monstrosities she's worn, I think my favourite is the the dress with the big ass belt hiked up right below her boobs. I'm talking about movie stars like Drew Barrymore, who I think, many here will admit, is a very attractive gal. But some of the getups she's worn have looked less than stellar. And Nicole Kidman used to have that same problem, mainly when she was married to Tom.

195 I never watch the Grammys at home.  Seems the only time I catch 'em is when I'm visiting someone's house or at a gay sports bar.

Somehow I caught Trace Adkins tribute to the troops last year.  For a guy with such a troubled life, he knows what's right.

196 Hey Laceygal! Yeah, the house was an icebox when we got home. And the new guy who was supposed to deliver a shipment of wood to us crapped out, saying we lived too far. So, we spent much of today, buying bundles from the grocery store, and calling around to wood delivery people for a shipment tomorrow. It took an entire day to heat this house back up. I'm really missing the Florida weather.

Totally agree re Michelle O, but I still think her stylist hates her, lol. When Nicole was with Tom, I bet he couldn't stand that she was prettier than him as well as taller so he made her look ugly.

Beyonce also seems to choose hideously when it comes to fashion. She usually wears her mom's designs, so maybe she doesn't like them, either but she can't say no to her mom.

The Iranian president made the remarks as the 31st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution approaches.

Iranians are expected to pour into the streets on February 11 to celebrate the occasion in public rallies across the country, as they have done annually over the past three decades.

286 This is the worst effing Pro Bowl in History. These people should be tried for War Crimes for foisting this game upon the American People. I hope Sarah Palin makes abolishing the Pro Bowl a plank in her platform.

Well, at least you're not a human form replicator, which is a big relief.

And the best the Grammys can do is Bon Jovi?

Anyone wonder why the record industry is in the dumps?

292 285 80sbaby, Kratos has decided I'm a Gorgon instead of a vampire.

How did he come to this conclusion?

286 You knew that was coming.

293 i don't see a test happening because if they showed they had a nuke there is nothing that would stop bebe from turning iran into a glass parking lot

IMO, Israel doesn't have enough nuke ordinance to do that, or the delivery systems to put it on target that far away.  OTOH, we do...

If I were Ajad and I had at least two working nukes, I do one test shot out in the Iranian desert, then send Ogabe a message telling him the other one was already in NYC or D.C. (even if it wasn't) and "Oh by the way Barry, here is what we need you to do if you don't want this nuke to go off [insert list of crazy demands here]".

296 My best friend reports Bon Jovi had visuals "very much like the late Obama color manips with raised fists and such"--is this true?

My understanding is he was very upset with voters in New Jersey.  *woo-hoo!*

298 Not only can't TS sing, but country stations are fighting top 40 over her tunes.. A sad but true comment on today's country music. Imagine Ray Wylie Hubbard fighting over that shit. My network informs me that TS is huge in Myrtle Beach. FWIW. I rest my case.

299 #302  Well, he grasps at straws, doesn't he?

Not at all.  I've seen Gorgons before and they have complete control over their snake-like hair.  Rum's description fits.  And if she's not a vampire, here's the other option.

I will admit, I love music. I also love live music. This Grammy crap ain't it. Want to see some music? Pick up Live Aid or Live 8. Or something like''The Last Waltz".

This isn't it. Waste of time, and yes, I am changing the channel.

Bon Jovi is still successful? Really? Who did Jon Bon blow to continue to get media coverage? Was it the dude who feathers his hair?

306 267-268.  I felt bad that I hadn't listened to NPR in a long time; was curious how quickly I would be offended.  For culcha, lefties are ok.

I don't care about the ego of musicians if they are good.

Any band whose lead singer danced around like an epilectic/KarlRove in a massively oversized Big Suit is exempt from that rule of 80s awfulness.

312 Wow.. I am impressed with the Grammy's tonight.

Music is back.  Actual melodic music.

Michael Jackson - what a freaking musical talent.. as good as he was weird..and man that was one weird dude.  what a shame..

That's all I got...

Bon Jovi had a hot ass in a pair of Levi's back in the day. That's the most important contribution of his IMO.

315 2 The Pro Bowl has hitherto performed the useful function of making one not wish to watch football for several months.
Posted by: Scandiman

It worked and all I had to do is watch 15 seconds of it.

Posted by: Gmac at January 31, 2010 05:59 PM (4zZEq)

316 Tried to watch the Pro Bowl. After one play, I switched off. The linemen were going through the motions of blocking/attacking, and quite frankly, it annoyed me to see Eagles, Giants and Cowboys trying to pretend that they like each other. In fact, all-star games of all sports suck, except baseball's and even that has lost it's luster since interleague play began. Baseball's game at least shows the sport as it's meant to be played...nobody that I know of is trying to strike out or purposely throwing home run pitches. In the other 3 sports, the name of the game is offense and avoiding injury.Oh well, rant off/

As for the grammy's, which my wife is now watching...lots of eye-candy, but there's a reason that I haven't bought many records made after, say 1991 or so.....awful, awful "music".

317 They've used the "censorship delay" about 15 times so far during this current rap "performance". They should have just left the sound off for the duration.....

well, so far they've only put out one album.  Let's see if they stand the test of time.

Airborne Toxic Event is much much better.

319 Shit, Drudge has a new headline up:  Ahmadinejad:  Iran will deliver telling blow to global powers on Feb. 11

If this was Obama, a sharply-worded, non-commital memo would be the "telling" blow.
