Happy Columbus Day

A lot of people have today off. Sadly, I am not one of those people. So, you get a video this morning in honor of Cristoforo Colombo, Italian colonizer, explorer and generally clueless navigator. Chris, thanks for finding The Americas five hundred years after Leif Ericson.

Are you sure it wasn't Leif Garrett?

Mr. Garrett tried to discover America, but ended up three sheets to the wind with his car in a Dominican tree.

Thus leaving Mrs. Garrett alone to take care of those girls at that school.

And his brother to guide the Cowboys offense.

And Brad to do the "real" acting.

That's pretty impressive
collective wit there, guys. Especially for a Monday.

This is what you get when you hire Bob Hope's old writing staff.

Looks like Jason G. better get Brad Johnson loose...

Nice of Clemson to give Tommy Bowden Columbus Day off...

TJ said...

The only guy who deserves to be more fired than Tommy Bowden is Marvin Lewis. Mike Brown, are you listening?????

TJ said...

OK, I had success with the short and sweet approach to last night's Chargers pick, so we'll follow the same path...

Giants. On the road. To beat the hapless Browns by 14.

GTB goes 3-2 to not lose any ground with Geoff/Jerry.

The floor is open on this very slooooow work day to guesses of what he said, and remember, this is MLS soccer we're talking about:

A fan has been banned from Houston Dynamo games indefinitely after an incident Sunday night in which United goalkeeper Louis Crayton had to be restrained.

I think he said, "Hey Hanrahan, she's a dyke. I know! She's a lesbian!"

By the way, Paul Newman said that was his favorite movie. May have been an incoherent death-bed revelation, but he said it.

TJ said...

OK, we go 2-3 this week to fall even farther behind the 'House...

Fucking unbelievable...Hollywood assholes:

As Wall Street continues to capture headlines due to market volatility, 20th Century Fox is moving forward with a "Wall Street" sequel.

Allan Loeb ("21") has been tapped to pen the screenplay, which is being fast-tracked by the studio as a Michael Douglas starrer, though the actor is not formally attached.

The modern-day story will again center on Gordon Gekko, who has recently been sprung from prison and re-emerges into a much more tumultuous financial world than the one he once lorded over. The Bud Fox character, played by Charlie Sheen in the original, will not appear in the latest incarnation.
