Winners

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 4, 2019

Congrats to Brady and the Pats. I have given him a ton of shit, he shook it all off and was still able to focus up and win another SB. He’s a born winner. A true champion. Now, I’m not going to talk about him till next NFL season. I leave you with this.

Paul in Asia had trouble uploading this so here it is:

    unemployment line gonna be long this year. Somebody told me there’s always work down at the post office….

    Cool vid…

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:47 am

      yes. unrehearsed. Real. It was good to see Brady like that.

  3. willedav said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:25 am

    Yeah it’s obviously more than just a couple multi years/ $100 mil guys. Complicated issue but owners still seem to be winning. Not to rehash yesterday snoozefest, but WashPost commercial was quite impressive given the message delvered and shot of Statue of Liberty. Very nicely done.

    Adam Levine is turning 40 this year? That’s pretty incredible, HGH must be a wonder drug.

      Great recap, kat.

    So I’m guessing the Rams didn’t understand that they could just turn down a White House invite.

    Giants talking to Yanks about a swap of bad contracts..Ellsbury/Cueto..
    Ellsbury is owed 48 million,Cueto 68 million so the $$ money 💵 still would need to balance out.

    • wilcojoe said, on February 4, 2019 at 11:22 am

      Wasnt Loo calling for that trade last year?

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2019 at 3:54 pm

        What else would I be doing?

        djloo27 said, on May 29, 2018 at 9:35 pm (Edit)

        Loo-natic time…

        At the trade deadline Cueto will still have $77 million guaranteed coming to him. Assuming he’s healthy, I’d send him and Minaj ($ 4.5 million guaranteed remaining) to the Yanks for Ellsbury ($57 million guaranteed remaining) and a couple of top prospects. Of course, I don’t really want Ellsbury, but you gotta offset a chunk of Cueto’s money and his risky health to make this deal happen. Yanks are desperate for a quality SP and determined to go all the way this year. Think about it before you say it’s crazy…

    • gianthead said, on February 4, 2019 at 2:10 pm

      I think Ellsbury and Gardner get you to $50…I thought Ellsbury is owed $40ish next two years…I do that deal in a frickin heartbeat…

  12. zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 11:58 am

    I got the three big season preview magazines over the weekend. Athlon, Lindy’s, and Street & Smith. All very good. Just very full of interesting things. Last season, 31% of all ABs ended with either a walk, a strikeout, or the batter getting hit by a pitch. Almost one third of the ABs didn’t put a batted ball in play. All the sports evolve over time, and baseball has evolved to this.

    • zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 12:00 pm

      MLB, ironically, becomes a little bit more like little league every season, lately.

  13. Irish Kevin said, on February 4, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    I liked the Meme, $7000 for a Maroon 5 concert and a punting contest

  14. gianthead said, on February 4, 2019 at 2:08 pm

    Of course he is a winner…he is from the Bay Area…check Bonds, DiMagio, Giant Head…

  15. gianthead said, on February 4, 2019 at 2:27 pm

    We should do a poll of who signs first between Harper/Machado/Keuchel/Kimbrel.

    Any major free agent I’m missing? I vote Kimbrel.

    • Bozo said, on February 4, 2019 at 2:56 pm

      I read where there was still 100 FAs still out there. So it isn’t just the big dollar guys.

  16. snarkk said, on February 4, 2019 at 2:40 pm

    Cueto offloaded may be a good idea to help clear the decks. That would be sign of the feared rebuild. I assume he’s got a no trade of some sort, but why would he not want to go to Boston??…

    • Bozo said, on February 4, 2019 at 2:59 pm

      He probably doesn’t want to go to Boston because the trade rumor is with NY. 🙂

      • snarkk said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:25 pm

        Close enough… 😉

  17. zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    I like how the Rams had a 3rd and 23 with about 6 minutes to go in the game, and instead of at least just throwing the ball deep down the field and try to make something happen, decided to do a running play and punted the ball away instead, because THAT ALWAYS WORKS AGAINST BRADY. Yeah, that kind of conservative play-calling never comes back to bite you vs. Brady.
    The Eagles ran a trick play near the goal line last year. They knew you have to take some risks to beat New England.
    The Rams should have learned something from the difference between the Falcons and the Eagles in the Super Bowl vs. New England.
    And you just knew some questionable official’s call would have to factor in. The phantom holding call on the Ram center.

    • Macdog said, on February 4, 2019 at 4:26 pm

      So I wasn’t the only one who didn’t like that give-up play in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl. I had a text argument with a buddy over that very play.

  18. dirtnrocksnomo said, on February 4, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Why take on Ellsbury when Duggar is younger and basically offers the same output? Cueto’s not available for a bit but he was pitching quite well before going under the knife. I’d hold on to him hoping that he comes back strong with his new arm post tj surgery. With a solid rebound he’d command more in return due to being controllable with a team option until ’22. Unless some arms are coming through the system that nobody is aware of the club is going to need pitching. Especially when they don’t bring back Bumgarner.

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2019 at 4:10 pm

      exactly. What’s the rush to ditch Cueto if we’re just taking back the same salary and then Duggar gets blocked? He’s one of the few guys I want to see out there next year.

    • Bozo said, on February 4, 2019 at 5:08 pm

      Plus, the Giants probably have an insurance policy on Cueto, so they wouldn’t be paying his whole salary while he’s injured. I’m just not getting how the trade would benefit the Giants, now Melancon on the other hand…

    • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2019 at 5:40 pm

      Your main man Francesa was vociferously backing Montana in that debate today…

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2019 at 5:43 pm

        Someone asked him today what QB in all of history he would take if he was starting a team.
        He thought for a long time.
        His final answer: Roger Staubach

      • Flavor said, on February 4, 2019 at 5:49 pm

        lol, Jesus.

  20. djloo27 said, on February 4, 2019 at 5:32 pm

    He died yesterday. I remember him very well.
    This was his last card:

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:40 pm

      you remember this dude VERY WELL? That’s a hell of a memory, my man

  21. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 4, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    Not sure if this will work, but I thought this was a fairly humorous take on the Super Bowl….

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 4, 2019 at 6:04 pm

      Yeah, nevermind. I can never add pics here, not sure why other than I’m a luddite.

      • djloo27 said, on February 4, 2019 at 6:11 pm

        Does that mean you were a fan of this guy?

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 4, 2019 at 6:52 pm

        I do remember him and I always liked that show, good for building vocabulary at a young age. And wasn’t he married to Betty White?

      • snarkk said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:28 pm

        Yes, and per Wiki she is now 97…

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:39 pm

        97… she’s someone who somehow maintained some degree of hot-ness as she aged. There’s another actress, I can never remember her name, must be pushing it in years by now but was fairly sexy even older. She played (among many other roles) Grace on Hill Street Blues. Sgt. Esterhaus died on the show while having sex with her. As they said at the time, a legend was born….

      • snarkk said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:51 pm

        I loved Hill Street Blues.
        It had to be the forerunner of lotsa ensemble shows to follow like LA Law, St. Elsewhere, ER, NYPD Blue, Northern Exposure, West Wing, etc.
        It might have been the best one of them all before Sopranos. Great cast. Quick Wiki shows:
        Daniel Travanti is 78, he played Frank, the Captain,
        Veronica Hamel is 75, she played Joyce Davenport, the asst. DA who was Frank’s hawwt squeeze. They always ended the show with them in bed.
        I definitely remember Esterhaus, he always ended the start of the show’s morning meeting: “Hey, Let’s be CAREFUL out there!”. I still sometimes use that on my kids. Barbara Babcock was his squeeze — she’s 81 now.
        Probably best not to search out more current photos of these folks. Remember as they were.
        And, Belker the plainclothes guy that was always the grungy decoy and growled a lot — loved his character.
        There were so many good actors on that show, it’s probably impossible to create such a large quality cast like that again…

  22. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on February 4, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    Craig, thanks for posting that pic (top of thread). Uh… I thought it was a lot funnier when I saw it last night after I’d imbibed a bit celebrating lunar new year’s eve……

    • Flavor said, on February 4, 2019 at 7:39 pm

      lol, yeah, it was ok.

  23. alleykat69 said, on February 4, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    Esterhaus was always the cool cop with a level head.Yeah great line :”Just be careful out there” he would say to everyone in the police meeting.
    Michael Conrad is his real name, he also played a convict along with Bert Reynolds in Longest Yard..

  24. zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Yeah, Hill Street Blues was very influential. It dared to have ambiguity and unhappy endings sometimes. And longer story arcs. Definitely the forerunner of so many great shows.

    • zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 8:38 pm

      Having said that, the show never really became regular viewing for me. I watched very little of TV shows in the ’80s. It’s possible the show I most watched in the ’80s was Night Court, which seemed very funny to me.

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 8:41 pm

        I did watch the Letterman show which came on so late in those days. In my group of friends, Letterman was essential viewing. Also MTV’s alternative rock music video show “120 minutes” was never missed.

      • zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 8:51 pm

        There was so much less sports on TV in those days, of course.
        And video cassettes were such a new and big thing. There were so many video rental places in those days.

  25. zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    Bagley with a great ally-oop dunk and having a strong game. Fun player to watch.

  26. zumiee said, on February 4, 2019 at 9:21 pm

    Kings defeated the Spurs. Nice win.

  27. mrsprtdude said, on February 4, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    Zummie I’m glad their is another Hill street fan out there. I get nostalgic whenever I see the opening. Patrol car sliding in the rain with the best music to open a show ever!

  28. mrsprtdude said, on February 4, 2019 at 9:44 pm

  29. mrsprtdude said, on February 4, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Ok I’m not the best at this technology thing. I can picture the opening credits as I here the music thought…

    • snarkk said, on February 4, 2019 at 10:26 pm

      Great intro theme.
      Written by Mike Post, the dude that did lots of memorable TV themes including Rockford Files and LA Law and Magnum PI.
      I loved Rockford, one of my all time top 10 TV shows. Jim Garner was great. On that show, it never showed him fighting in some long, dragged out fight, as I remember. He’d slug a guy a couple of times and the guy was down, and then he’d hold this punching hand like it was killing him; or he’d get pounded and go down fast, and not come up. Most of the time, these TV fights are BS, guys tattoo each other constantly on the chin for 2 minutes and keep getting back up — not realistic. And, he had a very realistic relationship with his screen dad “Rocky”. Garner sued NBC for ripping him off on hiding millions on rerun residuals he was due, and won…

    This Steven Bochco police drama wasn’t quite as successful.

  32. willedav said, on February 5, 2019 at 7:28 am

    Kings just beat Spurs and Sixers, couple playoff teams. Love to see them grab 8 spot.
    Interested to hear what knicks are going to do with D Jordan and especially W Matthews. Jenkins here says neither of these two would be into tanking. Matthews would really help GS. Livingston is done and Cook isn’t very good. This is a position they have to address, shooter ball handler off the bench when Kerr subs out his AS.

  33. gianthead said, on February 5, 2019 at 8:36 am

    First off you da man Zum.. 120 Minutes rules and still record it on MTV classic channel on now but they repeat so many of the videos it is laughable. Hill Street Blues is probably the first “adult show” I watched in high school
    ..very moving…but best theme song ever??? Cant beat Game of Thrones!!!! That opening shit is epic…I also loved the background haunting music on Dexter!!!

  34. snarkk said, on February 5, 2019 at 8:59 am

    Haven’t seen game of Thrones. Some day. Binge watched Dexter, sort of, over a month a while ago. First 4 seasons really good. Peaked. Writers must have changed. He and the writing got sloppy. Plot holes you could drive through. Series final was like the writers had to think of something before heading out for an after lunch round of golf. Oh well, it was good and well done while it lasted…

  35. unca_chuck said, on February 5, 2019 at 11:24 am

    Great stuff here. Ed Marinaro of Minnesota Vikings fame wasn’t a half-bad actor in HSB.

    Snarkk, the end of Dexter was about as shark-jumping as you can get. They did mail it in the last couple seasons. Not saying Better call Saul has gotten there, but the show floundered for a bit before getting better. They are going onto their last season i heard. That Gilligan guy said he would not extend Saul past the length of Breaking Bad so this is it. Jimmy goes bad. And whither Kim? I’ll be pissed if they kill her off.

    Speaking of Gillian and sharks, went on my first dive today. Pretty fricking cool. Saw 8-9 sea turtles, 3 octopi, countless reef fish, an eagle ray, and a barracuda.

    • zumiee said, on February 5, 2019 at 11:53 am

      Awesome experience for you! Very cool! Probably something I’d be too afraid to do.

      I read a column by a TV critic who said that if “Better Call Saul” kills off Kim, he will never recover from it.
