The Weekend!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 21, 2017

I still can’t get over all this Trump bullshit. I try to stay off social media. I just can’t stand his face or the little thumb that barely protrudes out of his tiny hand.

So…..football. Tomorrow. I gave out a free George Costanza 4 team parlay last week and if you didn’t make any $$$ off that don’t throw yourself off the bridge yet.

This week is easy. Atlanta annihilates Green Bay so lay those 5.5 and don’t even think twice about it. And Pitt beats NE outright. The $$$ line on that is +215.

Take both of those to the bank and no need to thank me later…..

      So do people really get their legs broken if they don’t pay when they lose?

    I love these tout radio programs on Sat morning on KNBR and the other stations. These guys profess to be so great, you can’t lose by hooking up for their tout services and letting them control tens of thousands of your dollars. If they are that great at beating the Vegas oddsmakers, why do they need my money?…

    • Flavor said, on January 21, 2017 at 11:17 am

      It’s so irritating that Knbr keeps taking their ad money and running their nonsense.

    Btw, the ONLY good thing about Radnich is that he refuses to participate in interviewing these charlatans. You’ll notice that when they have them on its Kruger asking all the questions, Radnich stays silent.

    • snarkk said, on January 21, 2017 at 11:32 am

      Yeah. The dudes on the tout show (um, “sports investing”) this morning on 95.7 sound like they just came for an audition for the Sopranos or a Donny Brasco remake…

    Blade: From last thread – try not to worry. I’m sure the many dads here will tell you that all pregnancies have some bumps and scares along the way but turn out fine. What’s the rush to do your taxes? My friend is a tax guy and he hasn’t even started yet…

    • blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2017 at 8:09 am

      Thank you (Flavor and snarkk too – both made me laugh). Linh, is doing better and we will know more next week some time. I leave on the 15th of February and I might have all my tax info to send to my accountant. If not, I will have to do them on April 6th, when I return to the States for that purpose or request an extension.

    Steve– I echo what Loo said. You’ll stress less once you’re back there but really there is going to be normal anxiety till he’s born. That will be replaced by no sleep and no sex for a long period of time. Enjoy!

    blade is genius.
    Worrying about the pregnant wife — while thousands of miles away from the complaints, honeydos, and inlaws. And, they’re all for it!

      Only day 2 of the Drumpf kleptocracy, and it has the look of the Nixon final days. This tool is like Nixon’s official press liar Ron Ziegler, who issued lies on lies to cover Nixon in the months before that criminal resigned…

      • Flavor said, on January 21, 2017 at 5:20 pm

        what’s crazy is that it’s so obvious that Trump wrote it. His first press conference and Spicer spends it stumbling over himself ranting about twitter and literally yelling at the media. I really can’t believe any of this is happening.

      • snarkk said, on January 21, 2017 at 5:28 pm

        Spicer shows that to work as an appointee in this dumpster fire administration, you have to check your principles at the WH door. What a disgrace. The danger is with an admin so out of its depth, the Russians and Chinese may try something radical, like roll tanks into the Baltics or Poland, or invade Taiwan. We are in uncharted territory with this nut…

        maybe 25 years ago. Now? She looks like a witch to me

      • snarkk said, on January 21, 2017 at 7:10 pm

        Hey, I feel sorry for Melania. She’s had to deny allegations she was a hooker before meeting Drumpf. And, she must have felt some remorse for stealing some of Mrs. Obama’s speech at the Dem convention four years ago. When she and Drumpf arrived at the WHouse yesterday, she gave Michelle a gift, which was a surprise. Some said she was just giving Michelle her speech back…

      • Flavor said, on January 21, 2017 at 7:30 pm

        I fucking LOVE that you use his given family name Drumpf. I’m kicking around getting this hat

    Here’s that article re Bo Jackson catching heat for speaking out.

    The left to right thing is cool.

    Even the Patriots’ fans cheat. A Boston guy was arrested for setting off a fire alarm at the Steelers’ hotel early in the morning.

  11. zumiee said, on January 22, 2017 at 8:49 am

    Unbelievably sad news being reported. Yordana Ventura killed in a car wreck. Another young rising star player lost. Fernandez, Taveras…..

  12. zumiee said, on January 22, 2017 at 9:09 am

    Ironically, Ventura wrote Taveras’ number on his cap during the ’14 World Series in remembrance.

  13. Flavor said, on January 22, 2017 at 10:47 am

    WTF is going on with the drivers in the DR? I’m not trying to be funny. It seems like an awful lot of pro baseball players die on the roads there….

  14. Flavor said, on January 22, 2017 at 10:56 am

    Some idiot pulled the fire alarm in the Steelers hotel this morning at 3am. Evacuated the hotel. They need to figure out a way to deal with this morons.

      I see Zumiee has already covered this breaking news story. 🙂

    Blown field goal wasted a “rebuttal” by Rodgers and the still injured Nelson. Nice to see Rodgers get Nelson involved early.

    Looks like Kyle Shanny going to the Super Bowl.
    So, another 2 weeks of waiting for something to go horribly wrong on the Jed/Paraag HCoach train…

  18. snarkk said, on January 22, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    Shanny going to the SBowl as OC actually has a good side if he does come to the Niners. He’s got the max leverage to put the screws to Jed and Paraag — like no Paraag in my meetings, my say so goes on personnel, etc. Plus, he’s going to put the screws to them on a contract — 5 years at $40M? Were I him, I wouldn’t move to SClara without such conditions…

    Magnus,
    I just sent you a photo from the march in NYC. My older daughter was one of the pussyhats. Her hat said, “Tiny hands OFF!” and she wore a beauty pageant sash that said, “MISS REPRESENTATION.”

    She sent a photo of a poster that read, “I’d Call Him a C*nt But He Lacks the Depth & Warmth.” But there was no asterisk.

    • Bozo said, on January 22, 2017 at 4:17 pm

      One of my favorite signs was, “The Great Wall of Vaginas”.

      • pawliekokonuts said, on January 22, 2017 at 4:31 pm

        good one . . . would make a funny one-off book (slogans from the marches) . . . like those funny books in the Sixties that put fake news, ahem, captions on news photos

      • Bozo said, on January 22, 2017 at 5:34 pm

        “We will overcomb.”, “Ikea has a better cabinet!”, “I’d pee on Trump for Free!”, “Resistance is Fertile!” – So many to chose from.

  21. xoot said, on January 22, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    Pawlie, people like your daughter–and many many angry, smart, capable women on both coasts–may not only get us through this Trump era, they may ensure that it’s a suitably short one. Yesterday’s demonstrations made me stop thinking about the 60+ million who voted for the fraud and start thinking about the millions more who voted against him.

    Gambling on football? My son put $300 at 10 to 1 on the Falcons winning by more than three touchdowns. Time for him to buy me another bottle of Blanton’s.

  22. pawliekokonuts said, on January 22, 2017 at 4:29 pm

    So Josh Johnson just retired before he could do his part of the minor-league contract he signed with the Giants. Do they have to pay him?

  23. djloo27 said, on January 22, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    What is the point of protesting against the winner of a Presidential election that was conducted the same way they always have? If your candidate lost, it’s just too fuckin’ bad – stay home and cry for the next 4 years…

    • snarkk said, on January 22, 2017 at 6:18 pm

      What was the point of protesting against George III? Stay home and cry for the next century? And, since when was Russian based disinformation campaign on behalf of one candidate standard operating procedure in our elections?…

      • djloo27 said, on January 22, 2017 at 6:27 pm

        Has nothing to do with the process. The results are official. Tear up your losing ticket…

      • snarkk said, on January 22, 2017 at 6:51 pm

        Nixon was way official, he actually got the most votes. Then the stewards checked — and he resigned…

    • snarkk said, on January 22, 2017 at 6:54 pm

      What’s with Melania? She looks constantly pissed off, lots of frowns and deep stares. Looks like trouble in Drumpfadise. She’s heading back up to NYC for the foreseeable future…

      • Flavor said, on January 22, 2017 at 7:07 pm

        I mean, she’s gotta be so bummed she has to deal with this, right? She’s not even moving into the White House. She would have greatly preferred to live the rest of her life in anonymity spending Trump’s millions on her hair or shoes or whatever. All that is out the window now. She can’t go anywhere. lol. That’s actually the best thing that’s come out of this bullshit……

      • snarkk said, on January 22, 2017 at 7:14 pm

        Drumpf will be getting peeved, too. Too many people watching to get some Russian escorts through the back door and maze of security without risk of a tweet somehow giving them away. He’ll have to go to Mar a Lago a lot to make it easier. Melania will be in NY, she’s probably accepting of it now. But, that constant watching will get him into a sour mood, assuming we can tell…

      • Flavor said, on January 22, 2017 at 7:22 pm

        can you imagine the bullshit you have to go through as President? I wouldn’t take that job if you gave it to me. It’s probably the worst job in America when you consider how fucked up your privacy gets……

  25. snarkk said, on January 22, 2017 at 6:55 pm

    Another SBowl for the Pats. Put them in another division and see how many times they get through. The AFC East has been a POS for almost every year for the last decade and a half…

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on January 22, 2017 at 7:00 pm

      “Getting through” to the Super Bowl usually involves actually beating other division winners too….

  26. wilcojoe said, on January 22, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    That offensive line for New England is ridiculous. It’s been that way forever. Maybe the Niners should hire their offensive line coach?

  27. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on January 22, 2017 at 7:25 pm

    Yeah, poor Melania. Look at the link in Tom’s 3:39 post about Sean Spicer’s “alternative facts”, and a few tweets down there’s a short clip of Trump *making* Melania say some words at a podium, when she clearly would rather be anywhere else doing anything else. So, yeah, NY is where she clearly will be… The whole thing is a reality TV show now.

    • blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2017 at 8:05 pm

  28. xoot said, on January 22, 2017 at 8:15 pm

    When Trump starts appointing Supreme Court Justices things won’t be so humorous. And that starts next month, I believe. Upper middleclass liberals mocked the Reagan years in the 80s, but they were secure. Same thing in the oughts when GWB’s crew took charge. Same thing now. Mock and count your earnings and hope for better times. Meanwhile, a lot of other people are going to drown. I guess I’ve used up my words per month. adios Be back in February with some news about Stix’s docket.

  29. unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2017 at 9:53 pm

    DJ, the protest isn’t about the election. The protest is about the United States moving their policies back to the 50s. The 1850s. RB Ginsberg better have 4 years left in her. The threat is real to paraphrase Dave Mustaine.

    Best sign I saw in the walnut creek march was a little boy carrying a sign with his little sister that said (hyphen placement was important here):

    Girls just want to have fun-
    damental human rights

  30. unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2017 at 10:07 pm

    Voter suppression is already happening in 6 or 7 states. Spicer’s opening salvo in his ‘briefing’ was about crowd size, tweets, and flat out lies. Don’t believe what you saw what your eyes. Believe what I say. Trump had 10 million people show up. Obama had 500,000. American Carnage was Trump’s take on the state of the country. You know when we were fucked? 8 years ago when Obama took over.

    Trump’s comments for the past couple days are his commencement of getting rid of the 1st Amendment. Rick fucking PERRY (you remember, the guy who wanted to get rid of the Department of Energy) is in charge of the Department of Energy! He’s in charge of the nuclear arsenal!!!

    Betsy DeVos knows nothng about running public schools. But she did dismantle and destroy the public school system in Detroit. Like they don’t have enough problems. She wants to institute publicly funded religious schools at the cost of dismantling the public school system.

    Look, DJ, I got no dog in the fight anymore personally. I’m a straight white guy. My kids are out of the public school system. I’d like to see my taxes lowered. But this country is heading in a very frightening direction. I’m sure we will survive this absolute fucking idiot. But then again, boom.

    Ignore as y’all wish. But I’m thoroughly pissed off and disgusted by what is happening.

  31. gianthead said, on January 23, 2017 at 6:34 am

    I would have gone the same on Atlanta big but also would have put money on the Steelers. That was all emotion. You can’t play a soft cover on Brady. They just picked them off all day…
