Raising Filler to New Levels

Because I'm tired of looking at sleepy Nats fans, and because this made me laugh out loud, and because I'm hoping (though not expecting) that this white flag of a post may inspire someone at G:TB HQ to post something else, I give you the following quote from Jerome P. Flantastico, proprietor of Jerry's Wheelhouse, regarding last night's Rockets/Lakers game:

"Look at all the skanks. Houston is the New Jersey of the rest of the country."

recommenting whitney's joyous news from the previous thread: news about the long-awaited 'the state' dvd - http://www.the-state.com/

Jerry said...

HD deserves a lot of credit for allowing observant viewers to develop detailed demographic profiles such as that one.

rob said...

we should also point out that jerry was not limiting his description to the females in the viewing audience. multi-gender skankiness appeared the rule.

Mark said...

I think Jerry's observations from last night have inspired me to come up with a new slogan for the Houston Chamber of Commerce:

Houston: Come for the Skanks, stay for the Drank.

Mark said...

Pour a little out, Wayman Tisdale is dead.

Geoff said...

If Slater still read this blog, it'd be a good time to discuss our Danny Schayes, Don Klein, Wayman Tisdale fascination with the early 90s Suns. But alas...goodbye Wayman. I'm sure you're playing the bass and hitting 12 footers with Jesus now.

rob said...

that's a bummer. i liked that dude. cancer, you bastard.

Geoff said...

We lose Wayman Tisdale, but according to USA Today, En Vogue is planning a reunion tour. Ah, circle of life... I can't imagine those chicks held up very well.

Geoff said...

So Andy Reid's kid failed a drug test in violation of his probation. Which is sad. Conversely, this line from the story is hilarious:
"He was sentenced to two years in a drug rehab program in July after being caught with 89 prescription pills inside his rectum..."

rob said...

anyone see 'riggo' on american dad?

Jerry said...

Shouldn't we get a 10 page Magicians post from Sparky before they get eliminated?

Mark said...

I shy away from too many team-centric posts because I doubt most people care about my feelings on my favorite teams. The Gators are the exception because, during the fall, they rule nearly every aspect of my life.

With that said, I'll see if I can't put something together before Game 7 on Sunday.

Mark said...

Also, Jerry is determined to make this whole "Sparky" thing stick. Got to like his determination. It's almost as impressive as Geoff's continued insistence on proving to us he's hetersexual.

TJ said...

Make sure to mention the surreal nature of Rashard Lewis taking the ball strong to the rack? That was...surprising.

Greg said...

easy there sparky

Jerry said...

I'm very persistent when it comes to nicknames. I'd prefer to not call anybody by their real name.

Geoff said...

Hey Sparky...wanna go grab a pitcher of cosmos and talk about clothes and feelings?

Mark said...

That sounds super, Geofferson.

TJ said...

Scientists should study Ron Artest's brain when he goes out in a spectacular blaze...but in the meantime, keep giving us gems like this you crazy crazy man:

"'Five Dollar Foot-long' is one of the best songs," Artest said. "That's a hot song. You've got the FreeCreditReport.com, and then 'Five Dollar Foot-long' comes on. When 'Five Dollar Foot-long' comes on, they should play that in the club. They should play all those in the club."

TJ said...

Turn to MASN and enjoy the Nats "crowd" tonight...

Geoff said...

There's a DVD available on amazon entitled "Sparky: The Mark Hughes Story.". And there are only 10 shopping days left to Memorial Day...

TJ said...

Bruce Smith, apparently a huge fan of the irish taxi.

Mark said...

I'm gonna buy that DVD and review it for G:TB.

And I need to know more about the FreeCreditReport.com song and Ron Artest. Which one does he like best? Is he more of a Seafood Restaurant scene guy, or does he prefer the Renaissance Fair one?

Mark said...

Corie Blount, living up to his surname.

Jerry said...

Sparky might be the 2nd best Welsh footballer of all-time. Or I might be completely talking out my ass. But I'm not talking about the "Welsh Rules Football" that Mayhugh insisted was an actual sport.

rob said...

if you haven't read big daddy drew's latest, please to be enjoying:

rob said...

adam dunn just showed some redass after failing to come through in the bottom of the 9th. i like it. and the nats get to brad lidge.

Whitney said...

Best Welsh footballer -- isn't that like king of the dipshits? Every time anyone in our group even mentioned that sport whilst in Cardiff, some Welshman vomited on him for effect. "Fucking English sport" was the gentlest of expressions for it. Rugby rules the day there, and American rugby fans are heralded. Which is awesome.

TJ said...

The amount of troglodyte Phillies fans here tonight is despicable.

TJ said...

Nats Pride bitches

Dave said...

call me a loser, but haven't you used the "using the whole fist there, doc" title before? i vaguely remember it. i'm going to do a search.

Dave said...

thursday october 21st, 2004. it's sad that i remember that, there's got to be something better my brain could remember . . .

TJ said...

I'm guessing that post discusses an epic Yankees collapse.

Mark said...

This has been easily the least productive weekend at G:TB since I joined the staff. I blame TJ...and Greg.

zoltan said...

"Cop Land" is on Encore. I saw it in the theater but haven't seen it since. Everybody and his brother is in this movie. Stallone, Keitel, Deniro, the guy who was the liquid Terminator in Terminator 2, Jeanine Garafolo, Ray Liotta, Phil Leotardo, even fucking Method Man's in this thing.

Geoff said...

Robert Patrick? I believe like Leotardo he was also featured in the Sopranos. He ran a sporting goods store and may or may not have hung himself in his basement. Something like that.

TJ said...

That's three consecutive walk off wins for Los Jankees...

Mark said...

I, was actually in "Copland".

rob said...

dave, technically the headline on october 21, 2004 read 'using the whole fist, doc?', so we're fine, according to strunk and white. also, the subject matter of that same post was the yankees' collapse against the red sox in the alcs, so thank you very much for bringing it to my attention. good reading.

Shlara said...

Mark, no post about Game 7? Are you feeling OK?

rob said...

i really don't care for rafer alston's game.

Geoff said...

I assume that Stan told Reddick not to help off of Ray Allen, but still...the way JJ is guarding Allen is almost comical to watch.

Geoff said...

There is no way the Magic could blow a 17 point lead in 8 minutes.

You're welcome Sparky.

TR said...

Somebody should tell Boston there's no game 8.

Geoff said...

A 3 point play by a thrid stringer who is poland's answer to Matt Geiger means you are going to lose.

Shlara said...

1. I still love Ray Allen.
2. Where did Ewing get that suit? He's inching closer to Craig Sager territory.
