A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Pablo Sandoval

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 1, 2013

Jesus, I’m not sure I can take any more Super Bowl *hype*. I think I could handle hype about the game but that’s not what we’ve gotten this week. Deer antler spray, homophobic hysteria from that dolt Culliver and now a whiny cheerleader complaining about being left off the Ravens cheerleader squad because she gained 1.8 pounds. It’s all a bunch of nonsense. Play the game already and put these story lines out of their misery…….

The Panda’s team just won the Venezuelan Winter League Championships, of which he was named the MVP. I’ve been spending my normal amount of winter time worrying about how large he’s gotten since last November. Here’s a recent pic of him celebrating his home run and he looks about the same to me:



The fact is, he spent his off season playing baseball and that is probably the best thing for him. There were reports that his abdominal pain hospitalization was caused by a disease called colitis. That’s a little scary, that’s a serious condition. But there are many different types of colitis so I guess we should wait and see what’s going on with him. In many cases people who have colitis are put on a steroid called Prednisone with one of the main side effects being a swelling of the face. I’m not sure if The Panda’s face could tolerate such a side effect.

But until we know more, life probably couldn’t be much better than it is right now for Sandoval.

    HEY,TED!! FUCK YOU!! I still have that Olivia Newton song dancing around in my head. BASTARD!

    Couldn’t agree more about the SB news. My newest, least favorite, is CW Nevius only talking about Bourbon street. I don’t spend a lot of time in the Quarter and if I am in the Quarter, I rarely even cross Bourbon, for someone to go to NOLA AND only talk about Bourbon street spells lame to me. That is unless he’s taking Culliver to the gay clubs at the other end of Bourbon, now that might be interesting.

    Panda hit .300 and had 3 dingers in Venezuela, so I’m not to worried about him.

    Uh, flav, any chance the bartender BBOTD stays up permanently somewhere?

    • Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:52 am

      I’ve got any pic I’ve ever uploaded saved in wordpress. I’ll bring her back for a *retro* BBOTD if you’d like. How long does it take to go retro? A week? lol
      Actually, now she’s living with the Sun Dressed Goddess and Anna the Real Estate Agent…..

      • willedav said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:55 am

        thx. I love this place.

      • ewisco said, on February 1, 2013 at 12:45 pm

        atta babe flavor. she’s got enough tools to open a hardware store.

      • Bozo said, on February 1, 2013 at 4:34 pm

        ewisco, do you mean the garden tool section?

  4. Bozo said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:45 am

    Hey, I missed this great Giants news yesterday.

    • willedav said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:13 am

      So, you sell out dang near every game anyway, meaning 40 thou are paying to get in and coming to the yard regardless. Instead of making it a cattle call, bring extras for anyone who wants one, hire reinforcements and give some kids in the hood a couple hours gig handing them out and make it easy on everyone. Why limit the giveaway in the first place? It’s not like an extra 10 thou gnomes are gonna set the Giants back much.

      • Bozo said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:45 am

        Agreed willie. Maybe the 25,000 that they used to give out was considered more collectable but I don’t know why the Giants would care about that.
        A little tip for the give away days, go through the Public House door to the ballpark. Less of a line, plus you can take your cocktail or beer in with you (in a go cup), or get stamped and turn back around to go back into the bar.

    I’m not giing to worry it comment about Pablo’s weight, even if it becomes an issue. To use a popular phrase, It is what it is. A joy watching that video of him in Venezuela. No other player I pull for as much. Hoping again this is the year that he can have that MVP season he’s capable of.

  6. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 9:41 am

    The bobble head shit WAS getting crazy. people were showing up 3 hours in advance to get one. And they were still denied. Those damn things cost pennies to make.

  7. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 9:43 am

    Talk about excitus interruptus. I was scrolling down expecting to see Daisy the hot bartenter, and instead it was Anna, the slutty real estate agent.

    Sorry, Mike. Too neanderthal?

  8. snarkk said, on February 1, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Daisy the Bartenderess is quite good, but she has appeared in quite a few places on the web. She can be found. Now, ChiP’s honey with the hat sitting on the beach, whom I call Mary Ann – she is the hard one to find. No doubt Mary Ann could teach Daisy a thing or three. And, like any vision, she is ephemeral…

    • chipower9 said, on February 1, 2013 at 11:01 am

      I like Mary Ann, snarkk (both her, and the name). Works for me.

      I was going to ask Craig if there was any chance she too could get a permanent residence here somewhere.

      Now that (Mary Ann) is my kind of woman….something about her….Mmmmm……..

  9. snarkk said, on February 1, 2013 at 9:51 am

    So, have the Giants given up on Pablo’s weight? Or, just not going to talk about it anymore?
    I think it’s ridiculous to say he’s just fine the way he is and don’t sweat it. Down the road, this weight is likely to catch up with him in injuries. Down the road could be in ST, or in August, or 2 years. If he played at about 225 instead of 270, maybe he’d hit .365 and 45 bombs and be Brooks Robinson at 3rd. Or, he could be crap and be miserable. But, I think he should try to find out…

    • chipower9 said, on February 1, 2013 at 11:02 am

      I absolutely agree, and I think the Giants know this. It will be interesting to see how it shakes out. Wonder if Pablo is resistent to constant monitoring, and weight goals, etc. If so, I would say tough luck…he is getting paid quite handsomely…there should be nothing wrong with the Giants setting some expectations to protect their investment in the Panda…

  10. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 11:27 am

    I’m sure Bochy was less than thrilled to see that video. I’d be on that side of it as well. Sure, he plays well at 285, but really. losing weight will not take away his batting eye or make him struggle more. It’ll all help in the end. He should know that.

  11. blade3colorado said, on February 1, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Flav, I forgot to give you a shout out with regard to what you said about Zito being “one of your all time Giants heroes.” I couldn’t agree more with what you said. Good post yesterday (or whenever you wrote it – I am on NZ time. Ha.).

    New more detailed post regarding the 3 hikes I did yesterday, with plenty of pictures. Quite frankly, Greymouth’s coastal drive is as good as Big Sur in my opinion (and Lonely Planet). Check it out on my blog. Thanks 🙂

    • snarkk said, on February 1, 2013 at 12:34 pm

      Hey, if Zits can come back and be a hero after 5 years of walking the wilderness, why not Akers getting it done for the Niners this Sunday? But, I’d rather he not have to try…

      • blade3colorado said, on February 1, 2013 at 11:38 pm

        I hope Akers can come through if put in that position. In my opinion, the Niners will spank the Ravens. Nothing really to go on (you guys are much more informed about what’s what), except the Niners don’t lose Superbowls. I am hoping that past SB winners, e.g., Rice, Montana, Clark, Young, Lott, etc., are invited to make pre SB speeches to the team. I’ll be pissed if this team sullies our perfect record in the SB.

  12. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    It Doesn’t Get Better for Culliver’s Travails- the “It Get’s Better Project” has pulled the video that the Niners did to support the project: showing “young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential and positivity their lives will reach — if they can just get through their teen years.” Brooks and Sopoaga, two of the players who did the video, now disavow it.
    .“Unfortunately, the reaction of the 49er players sends the message that gay and lesbian teens are not welcome in sports,” said Athlete Ally founder Hudson Taylor.
    This is NOT going away.
    The “It Gets Better Project” is a widely respected organization, the Niners were the first team to do a video, and it sent a strong message of support to our LGBT community. It will take more than the lame responses from the team to make it better again. What Brooks and Soapy have done is even WORSE than Culliver’s words, as they show both bigotry and cowardice,The Soapster even tried to claim someone using his name made it. I’m posting this here because it’s an important story.
    Here’s the It Gets Better website:

    And here’s the excellent video that the two players tried to disavow.

  13. Alleykat said, on February 1, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    You can bet Giant’s management,wants Pablo to get fitter not fatter.Last 2 years 117 &108 games played.
    Yeah.he.had the hamate bone injuries,both.removed now,so no more excuses.not playing atleast 150 games now,like 09 & 10.

    • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 2:14 pm

      Hamate bone injuries are not “excuses”.

      • Alleykat said, on February 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm

        No it’s not but his weight is,and it will affect how many games he ends up playing.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 3:26 pm

        You don’t know that and you don’t know his weight. He looks stronger more than fatter.

      • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 4:54 pm

        Yeah, that giant protruding gut, er, muscle looks tight.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:45 pm

        Well, like i said before, I guess I should bow to the expert on fat fucks.

  14. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    I get it, Mike. You yell at everyone for posting about Culliver here, yet you still post shit.

    The Niners didn’t take the video down. That was Dan Savage’s choice. Did he not explain what the video was about to Brooks and Soap? Whitner obviously does, because he says LBGT in the video. The other don’t. Maybe there was a miscommunication on their part. I ask because Ahmad Brooks is Christian, and it goes against what he believes.

    Is that allowed, Mike?

  15. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    Are you really suggesting they made this video and never saw it until a couple days ago? That defies logic even for you. It was made in August, pal. They were heralded for being tough macho athletes standing up for bullied gay and lesbian teens. God, man, make at least a perfunctory stab at common sense.
    Great comment from Brooks after first denying he made the video..
    “Ok you’re right! That’s me in the video that’s clearly me. What do you want me to say? You’re right and I’m wrong! What are you from one of those fancy, truth-seekin’ newspapers up north?”

    • Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 4:40 pm

      they didn’t know what kind of video they were making, they thought it was an anti-bully video. When shown to him, Sop was like “oh, THAT.”.
      It doesn’t surprise me that they didn’t check into what they were filming, the Niners say “here, read this when the red light goes on” and then they’re done with it……….

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:07 pm

        The fucking video was made in August-you think they never saw it until now? Get real. If they didn’t know what it was about they would have said that in the first place-but they first denied ever making a video.

  16. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    I have no idea, what they thought Mike, but that’s not the point. They certainly didn’t seem to know that it was LBGT related. Brooks was surprised. He thought is was about bullying in general. Maybe they were misled. Maybe they didn’t pay attention. I’m sure they get asked to do tons of spots. The possibility exists they didn’t know what they were doing it for. And really, I don’t care. I thought it was really cool at the time, and 5 minutes later I never thought about it again. The LBGT community? I’m sure they thought the world of it. Then THEY moved on to other things.

    Now? Well, as I’ve been saying, this is a teachable moment. The issue is out of the closet (or locker room) but the truth of the matter is you aren’t going to find a lot of sympathy for gay rights in locker rooms. Even in San Francisco. Remember back when women reporters were starting to get access to locker rooms in the mid 70s? How long did it take for the attitude toward women in the locker room change? 10 years? 20? 40? There are still guys who wave their junk around in locker rooms when there are women in eyeshot. Why?

    What it all means is that you can never get everyone to follow the ‘correct’ course of action and say the right things all the time. Ignorance is not a crime.

  17. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    Like I said, the only one that mentions LBGT is Whitner. The rest don’t say it.

  18. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    What happened is easy to see: Culliver made his remarks. Brooks and Soap go “Fuck, the guys will think I’m a faggot now” So they do what truly stupid people do-deny they even made the video. Keep in mind-neither of them originally said that they didn’t understand what it was about – these morons tried to deny even making a fucking video.THEN they try to claim they didn’t know what it was about. You were caught acting like caring human beings, guys-the horror!
    What’s most pathetic is that these “men” think they would be looked upon poorly for BEING men and supporting that young people of any sexual orientation don’t deserve being beaten aand bullied for being who they are.

  19. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Frankly, pulling the video a chickenshit move on Savage’s part, I think. It’s grandstanding.

  20. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    How about this, Mike? The pot/kettle scenario?

    Activist Dan Savage quickly apologized for an on-camera gaffe in which he said he wishes all Congressional Republicans “were fucking dead” while appearing on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher.

    Savage, a popular advice columnist, appeared on the popular panel discussion program and when Maher compared congressional Republicans to late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Savage quipped, “Unfortunately not exactly like him. I wish they were all fucking dead.”

    • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:23 pm

      I think wishing great bodily harm on elected officials is a felony.

      I kid, I kid. Humor, Mike. Try it some time.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:37 pm

        STFU with this stupid “sense of humor” crap. It’s bullshit to begin with and it’s not going to cover you for calling a Darren Sharper a queer. You’re as homophobic as the sub-cretins you’re defending.

  21. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    Dan’s quite the busy guy:

    Daily Pennsylvanian conservative columnist Stephen Morse interviews Dan Savage about his ire for Rick Santorum with rather flamboyant results:

    From the interview:

    ■”Carl Romanelli should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the road.” (2:41)

    ■ “Any progressive who votes for a Green anymore after Nader and now Romanelli is a fucking idiot and should be beaten with sticks.” (3:05)

    ■”If Carl Romanelli gets back on the ballot, someone should run him over with a truck.” (5:22)

  22. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    ‘With their “It Gets Better” video, the 49ers are shining a golden beacon of hope to LGBT youth, and as a gay man, I enthusiastically applaud their courage and leadership,’ Chapin said in August.
    Scott Zumwalt of the ‘It Gets Better Project’ added: ‘Many (49ers) wanted to be in it, but they picked the most intimidating guys to deliver the message.'”
    The team was the first team to make a video for the group. THEY WERE PRAISED FOR IT. AT THE TIME IT WAS MADE.

    Chuckie- trying to divert blame to the It Get’s Better Project is despicable. Nothing you say about Savage has any relevance to What Culliver, Soap, and Brooks did. You are being an apologist for bigoted liars. Shame on you any any of *your* apologists.

    • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:59 pm

      Change the tinfoil in your hat skippy. I’m not diverting anything. I’m offering reasonable examples of what may have transpired.

      Shame on me? Pish posh!! I have no shame.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 6:08 pm

        There is nothing reasonable in even suggesting that they didn’t know what they were doing.They were *picked* by the It Gets Better Group. It was a BFD that the Niners were the first team to do a video for the cause. SIX MONTHS later, right after Culliver’s remarks, they suddenly develop Romnesia and deny they ever a made a video at all.
        All you’ve done is become an apologist for bigotry and hatred and joined the party by calling Sharper a queer.

    • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 6:07 pm

      Well, you are being an apoligist for a domestic terrorist.

      Door swings both ways, buddy.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:16 pm

        That’s just dumb, Chuckie. Savage’s comments have zero to do with anything the Niner idiots said or did. You’re just avoiding the issue. If you want to discuss Savage, we can entertain the troops another time with that one. He certainly seems way more in step with your kind of thinking than mine.

  23. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    And even though it’s patently ridiculous to even suggest they didn’t know about the subject of the video until six months had passed, despite the praise they and the team received for making the video- now Chuckles is saying it’s cool that these “men” would now be saying , in essence, that only straight kids deserve protection from bullies.

    • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 6:05 pm

      You don;t know, Mike. Admit it. You may think is patently ridiculous, but that’s your opinion.

      “Boo hoo. I don’t like what Chuckles says. Therefore he’s a neanderthal. I know what EVERYONE involved is thinking.”

      Cry me a river, Mike. You need to get off that high horse of yours. Thou doth protest too much.

      And, why don’t Savage’s comments come into play? He can be a petty little prick as well.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:11 pm

        Everyone knows, pal.
        It’s impossible not to know if one reviews the timeline, the circumstances,the ground breaking fact that the Niners were the first team to do this, that they were praised for doing it, that the video has been out for six months, that it was part of a concerted effort by the team to embrace the LBGT community,… about a dozen more reasons why everybody knows.. but yeah, not only did THEY not know, no one told them-EVER- for six months Whitmer never mentioned it, the team management never mentioned i , no one in the whole wide world who knew them saw the video and said ONE word about it? God, Chuck, have the cookie and milk, dude.

  24. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    Did I say it was cool? Of course not. Your paranoid mind comes up with this stuff. Like I said, they probably do 20-30 spots a year. Maybe they didn’t know the full scope of what they were doing. Maybe Savage didn’t tell them. I’m sure they did it and promptly forgot about it.

    But, no. It has to be some vast conspiracy on these guys’ part to demean the gay community. Carry on with the nonsensical ramblings. Blame me. Yeah, I did it. Point your fingers all around skippy. Eventually it points back to you.

    • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 6:23 pm

      It’s not a fucking conspiracy, they were afraid they they’d be thought of as gay after Culliver’s remarks came out, so they lied about the video. This is not just the opinion of Michael Scott- take a stroll through the Web- they’re a laughing stock, an embarassment… virtually everywhere but in Chuckles’ brain-and I’m going to start posting the pieces.

      • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:14 pm

        Again, I don’t care what the web thinks. You can find anything you like out there (wink).

    • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 6:43 pm

      Why did you call Sharper a queer? Who made you say that? Did I bait you into showing yourself as a homophobe? Yeah, that’s it..

      • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:12 pm

        Waaah! Somewhere a pony is crying.

      • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:15 pm

        1.. He’s a bit effeminate. I’ve got pretty good gaydar.

        2. It got a big reaction out of you.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:29 pm

        Yes, it did get a reaction out of me- I despise bigots.

  26. zumiee said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    So I was having a conversation with a Ravens fan, and he starts talking about the Super Bowls (plural) that Baltimore has won, and I begged to differ. Those other titles are COLT titles, and followed the franchise to Indy in those midnight trucks. And we then conversed back and forth about when a team can claim previous titles and when they can’t. An SF Giants fan can claim 7 World Series titles, but what about….let’s say….if the Sac Kings move to Seattle, and change their name to the Super Sonics. Can they claim the Sonics championship in the late 1970s, or did that championship go to Oklahoma City with the original Sonics franchise? Can two franchises claim the title? And what about the championship won by the Rochester Royals, who later became the Sac Kings? Does that title just fade away into the mists of time, unconnected to anything?
    I think it sort of matters.

    • zumiee said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:28 pm

      Or not. (grin)

    • Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:36 pm

      The one World Series hat I crossed off the list right away was the one that claimed 7 titles. Negative. We have 2. My team is the “San Francisco” Giants. New York is not part of my team.

      • xoot said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:42 pm

        The longer view has its pleasures. For example, the Giants as a single franchise have won more regular season games than any other franchise.

      • Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:47 pm

        Oh I’m not against counting the franchise numbers I’m just not going to walk around celebrating 7 titles on the top of my dome when I only cared about 2 of them

    • xoot said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:40 pm

      I don’t know. Maybe it depends on the name. If the team carries the name forward after it moves, the historical triumphs should remain, too. The Giants and Dodgers, etc., the Lakers and Jazz (what a stupid name for a Utah team and of course they had no titles to carry with them, so why bother?), the Colts, etc. But if the team changes names when it moves, like the recent basketball transfers, or the Browns and Senators, or the Oilers, then the former titles get cut loose.

      • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:03 pm

        Well, the Ravens still celebrate the legacy (and NFL titles) of Otto Graham and the Browns. The difference being the city of Cleveland took control of the team name, and Balt had to come up with a new name and uni.

      • unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:07 pm

        How many lakes are in LA?

      • xoot said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:49 pm

        Well, of course, but at least it’s LAkers. SLC, on the other hand, is the last place most people would go looking for jazz.

  27. paulinasia said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Interesting question, Zum. Your ‘Baltimore friend’ could certainly talk about the Super Bowl champions that the City of Baltimore has had… but not the franchise itself, since obviously the Colts and Ravens are not the same franchise. Ravens were the Cleveland Browns, if I remember correctly, so your ‘Ravens friend’ could also include all the Super Bowls won by the Browns… except that there aren’t any. He sounds like he was just trying to over-inflate the prestigiousness (prestigiosity?) of the Ravens. City championships and franchise championships are not always the same, as we know…

    • zumiee said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:59 pm

      He believes that Baltimore, in essence, gets to keep those Colt titles because of the especially egregious way that the Colts left, so suddenly, and in the the middle of the night. But I wasn’t buying that. Is it really so much better if it’s a long, drawn out, depressing situation like some of the moves that teams have made, where the fans are just wrung out over the thing?

  28. Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    I’m leaving for Reno tomorrow am and returning Monday. After the Niners beat Atkanta me and 6 of my buddies were texting and calling each other, celebrating our return to the SB. That turned into daring each other to meet up in Reno. And everyone had imbibed the proper number of beers to make it happen that night.
    So I’ll be intermittent the next few days though with my rad new iPhone I won’t be far away. I’ll try to post a BBOTD tomorrow that can stand the test of a few days. If I don’t switch the “days till” number maybe one of you Un-Stable’s can do it for me. I started at 94, we’re in the home stretch now!

  29. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Baltimore’s Raven legacy is that of the Cleveland Browns. Art Model, Ozzie Newsome and the like built and ran the team in Cleveland and moved the legacy. Indy’s legacy is that of the Colts. The difference being Cleveland took hold of the name. But not the legacy. I guess as a Bltimore fan you have the fact the Colt victories came in your town, but the team moved so you’d be praising the Indy Colts.

      I kind of feel bad for Cleveland sports fans (a little), because that Browns/Ravens team was their great window of opportunity, and did win a title in Baltimore, of course. Those Indians teams of the mid-’90s, too, of course; but I don’t have a feeling for them, because I wasn’t following baseball much after the double-whammy of the heartbreak ’93 season + the strike the next season. I drifted on baseball a bit during the mid to late ’90s, after the strike. It was the new ballpark that got me back in. Combined, of course, with the Giants going to the playoffs that very first year in the new park.
      I never felt that the Le Bron Cavaliers really had a chance. They made it to a finals, but it never felt like they had a real chance. The NBA West was so superior to the East.

    Didn’t see yers Paul . . .

    The championships are the city’s, but it’s a different team he’s talking about.

      what post did Twin delete of mine? I’m surprised you and Twin are making such a big deal out of this Culliver thing. I don’t see anyone arguing on behalf of the fat cheerleader who got left off the team because of her fat. 🙂 Come on! Let’s kick THAT topic around for a while!!!!!!! And don’t fuck with me on this issue, I KNOW I’m right and will blog to the death against the fat fucking cheerleader!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        There needs to be THREE weeks between the conference championships and the Super Bowl!!

        Pardon me? I deleted a post of Craig’s? I think not.
        Fat fuck cheerleaders? They have a very small community and precious little sympathy, not to mention empathy. They definitely need a spokesperson. Uh, is she a lesbian, too? I’m on it.

      • Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 9:08 pm

        yeah, I didn’t see anything that got deleted. Rolled off a Chuck post. Twin, I’m with you on the Culliver thing, minus the paranoid “they’re denying it” part. But even if that pisses you off, let me off the hook and let’s just move on. We both have too much to look forward to tomorrow to get caught up in something petty right now.

        I was probably too harsh on the lads. When Brooks said “I didn’t make any video, this is America and if someone wants to be gay, they can be gay. It’s their right. But I didn’t make any video,” I stupidly thought he was denying making a video.
        But I’m off of it, and onto fat girls, figuratively speaking.

    Craig, if you’re ever really scraping for BBOD pics (which I’m sure is not a problem), I’ve got a ton of ’em, mostly from my students and other lovely locals here… 🙂 Enjoy Reno!

    • Flavor said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:28 pm

      I’m never scraping for them, but thanks. If you’d like, I’ll set you up to post them yourself. I know there’s an underground following that would rather have you posting the BBOTD instead of me. Ted just jumped three feet off his chair after reading this………

        well then stop teasing me and send them.

      Well, since you are being Abraham Lincoln (freeing the slaves and all), I have admired a couple of your Vietnamese girl friends on Facebook for quite some time. I am wondering if I could “friend” one of them???? Ha.

    One of the benefits of counting the NY Giants World Series titles is that it gives us a lead over the Dodgers 7-6. (grin)

    Steve Nash is a lost soul on the Lakers. He doesn’t stand out or shine in any way. He’s just some guy on the court. Their offense doesn’t play to his strengths.

  34. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Whatever their legacy, the Ravens have won one Super Bowl. The wonderful city of Cleveland has never had the joy of their team winning a Super Bowl, as Paul noted. They were a powerhouse in the 50’s of course, led by the greatest playoff QB in the history of the game- Otto Graham.

    Raven is a helluva name and symbol. I think the poem itself makes sense only after you realize that the bird is ripping away bit by bit at the narrator’s carrion heart. In reality, the birds are big and mean and indestructible. They’re all over Anchorage during the winter, looking for junk to eat, screaming from the tops of roofs and street lights. Seagulls are angelic by comparison.

      The crows in LA are much much worse. They are large and fearless.

    Flav, you posted something along the lines of saying that the players did lots of videos and Brooks/Soap likely didn’t even remember doing it. It was on Mike’s Cullivers page. I don’t think I imagnined that you posted it, but whatever. If you say you didn’t post it, fine. Mike obviously has issues that I don’t care to even delve in to.

    What I get i pissed off at, Flav, is I gave my opinion on what Mike said, and Mike instantly attacks me and goes through his hysterical bullshit. My original response was in no way incendiary or even in any way an attack toward him. Since Mike didn’t like my opinion, he thinks it;s fair game to call me varoous names and question the type of man I am. He then calls me out for things which he knows nothing about. Read his gun control post in his Culliver thread. And all the other pussy-ass name calling he does. He’s a child.

    • twinfan1 said, on February 2, 2013 at 12:27 am

      And he was wrong wherever he posted it. I’ve shown that already but it’s enough to just note that the idea that absolutely no one among the several billion people in the world ever saw this video and clued those dunderfucks on what they appeared in.. is beyond absurd, beyond ridiculous,beyond unbelivable-it’s abdicridulousable…

  39. unca_chuck said, on February 1, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    It’s on this one, not the other one. Your 4:40 post, Flav. I thought it was on Mike’s Culliver thread. Sorry, Mike.

    I guess I just have to realize that when Mike opens a thread, we all should just toe the line and mimic Mike’s viewpoint. No one is allowed to question him, so I can therefore avoid the petty name-calling and hysterical rants from the grand internet pooh-bah. Which is why I didn’t bother posting on your gun post, Mike.

    • twinfan1 said, on February 2, 2013 at 12:14 am

      You didn’t post because everyone was thoughtful and well spoken. Chuckie, it’s fucking hilarious that you spout this nonsense that you can’t speak your mind. You’re happier than a pig in shit when you’re lettin’ the spittle fly, pal.

  40. twinfan1 said, on February 1, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    Chuckie, I’m afraid that the apologists for those three are in a very tiny minority. Chuck, you are “attacked” when you make preposterous claims and ignorant comments. Even that would be fine, I ignore benign idiots all the time. But this not the small matter.you aggressively claim it to be.You should be paying attention to how this has made the team look and the damage it’s done to their outreach to the Gay and Lesbian community. This is not Michael Scott overreacting-it’s Michael Scott portraying an accurate picture of how this has gone down. You NEED to see that this IS a BFD-especially to the people who have been disparaged. When you defend bigots and feel emboldened by their behavior so as to join the homophobia with the Sharper comment, questioning what kind of man you are is a reasonable query.
    My issues? Son, I have issues with bigots, homophobes, and those who defend them. Your evil little reference to things so presumably ghastly about me that they can’t be delve(d) into is more disgusting than anything I’ve said.What would they be, Chuck? Tell us all what these issues are that so odious that you dare not speak of them?

    • unca_chuck said, on February 2, 2013 at 8:02 am

      But you don;t know anything about it. You can’t say I KNOW what Brooks was thinking, but you don;t. You have an opinion as do I. Frankly no one cares but you. If the Niners win or lose, all this shit goes out with the bathwater. No one here (or most other places) thinks Culliver did anything to warrant suspension.

      I’m not defending bigots. I’m saying these are dumb jocks.

      • twinfan1 said, on February 2, 2013 at 8:12 am

        Like I said to the Clown- leave it here, Chuckie. take it up on the next thread, and it will make another unpleasant “discussion”. I think Craig warned you on that already.

  41. Nipper said, on February 2, 2013 at 5:30 am

    Fightin words?

  42. Bozo said, on February 2, 2013 at 6:54 am

    Fightin words, Nip? How about these.

    I hope Culliver gets into the game and makes an INT TD.
    I hope Alex Smith isn’t traded or released and sits on the bench next year.
    I hope we get one more good year from the Panda and he’s packaged with Andres TornanewassholeinNY in the offseason.

    Now those words should get some blood boiling.

    • twinfan1 said, on February 2, 2013 at 7:15 am

      Move it to the next thread and you’ll get plenty of blood boiling, Clown. Not a good idea.

    • twinfan1 said, on February 2, 2013 at 8:44 am

      It’s absurd enough trashing Smith as a QB but there’s zero reason to be antagonisic towards him.He and Whitmer are about the only guys who have demonstrated real class this week. The Niners have NOT presented a good look to the country this week. Even the Harbaugh family motto is a nauseating. Who has it better than them? Anybody who doesn’t claim to have it better than everybody else.
