Lazlo Hollyfeld is Not Pleased

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency just spent a ton of taxpayer dollars to prove something that we at G:TB knew was possible decades ago.




On the bright side, Chris Knight will finally get to wear a cap and gown.

apparently the video we are attempting to watch is unavailable.

TR said...

Lazlo has moved on to bigger things, like changing his name to Rico, living out of a van and wondering what would've happened if he could've been the starting QB for his high school team.

rob said...

teejay says the video is available in google chrome. so everybody change browsers.

Marls said...

I bet I could throw a football over that mountain.

TR said...

I hope everybody is ready for some red hot footie action this afternon. Man U squares off against Beckham's AC Milan squad, while Lyon squares off against Real Madrid. Both matches start at 3 PM EST. I know Fox Soccer Channel is showing them in some form. I will be tuning out at that time as I watch them on DVR.

It will be interesting to see if Beckham starts, or if he even plays at all.

rob said...

also, usa hockey plays switzerland at 3 est. a veritable smorgasbord of international sport. and, of course, tribe @ mason this evening. the lovely teej and dennis will be in the house, as will shlara, kq, and i.

Dave said...

i am lost in the allusions. is rico the uncle in napoleon dynamite with the time machine?

what was on the video?

was lazlo val kilmer in real genius? or was he the skinny guy who won the lottery?

sometimes it gets pretty obtuse around here.

Marls said...

Lazlo is Rico: Rico is Lazlo

Lazlo won the Frito Lay sweepstakes.

Mark said...

Its "the lovely Teej" now? Noted.

zoltan said...

Isn't it spelled Laszlo?

zoltan said...

Isn't it spelled Laszlo?

zoltan said...

And are the references contained herein obtuse or obscure?

Was that malice or mere depraved indifference?

rob said...

anyone else concerned that we haven't heard from whitney for 4 days?

rob said...

nats grab wang

rob said...

at least one of you will be happy about this: small wonder season one is now out on dvd.

TJ said...

Tribe/Mason tonight is gonna be huge...

TR said...

Small Wonder was popular around the time Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time" video was a big hit. In the video, she wore a ridiculous bikini/mesh/thong thing and a leather jacket. It was pretty ridiculous. My high school friends and I called it "the outfit." We used to come up with new people that should wear it. Every time we came up with a new really good person, we would try to top it.

Somehow, we landed on Jamie, the son from Small Wonder. Once we came up with him, we retired the game.

rob said...

dear nbc.com,

how the fuck am i supposed to know what my verizon fios password is? and why the fuck do it need it to watch streaming online video of olympic hockey? you really are trying to fuck these olympics up worse than a football bat, aren't you?

Geoff said...

I'm pleased to see the table has been set for a season of TJ's "Hey Wang, don't tell 'em you're Jewish" jokes.

rob said...

geoff, what is a martin kaymer, and how is it the 4th seed at the accenture match play?

Geoff said...

Dear NBC,

I have a TV in my office (which is supposed to be for watching CSPAN, but is used for that purpose approx 8% of the time), so I don't share Rob's frustration with your website. However, I foolishly thought that tuning my television apparatus to your station would allow me to watch said hockey game. I have instead been relegated to watching the biathlon (which yes Mark, I was initially excited about until I realized the "poles" involved were for skiing and not smoking) which does not interest me. Why do you vex me so, peacock network?

Geoff said...

He's a skilled German who plays on the Euro Tour. He was the "ir Henry Cotton Euro Tour Rookie of the Year" in 2007. Duh...

Geoff said...

Make that "Sir" Henry Cotton. He's quite certain he's earned it.

I first heard of Kaymer when he was rumored to be a captain's pick for the last Ryder. He's never been in my kitchen.

Geoff said...

And the game is airing on USA...which is not available on my work cable provider. And I also don't know my Verizon Fios password. Go suck a bag of dicks NBC.

rob said...

i know it's *cool* to say nbc's coverage of these games has been bad, but it's also really fucking true on a number of levels.

rob said...

happy lithuania day everyone.

Dave said...

your fios password is on your wireless router. that thing that's giving us brain cancer.

we just got fios today. gheorghe is so fast now!

Geoff said...

Indeed it is. Sadly my wireless router is at home...and going home to get said password and returning to work to watch hockey seems...inefficient...

rob said...

yes, but what's my fios userid, smartguy? and how am i going to view the password on my router from my goddamn office? answer me that, sentence boy.

Geoff said...

We need to live in a world where each person's user ID and password for every website is the same. And I think we are rapidly approaching such a world. For instance, I know that half the guys who post here use 6971 as their ATM code.

jerome said...

US 3, Switzerland 0 after 2 periods.

rob said...

i got your neutrality right here, switzerland.

zoltan said...

You could try calling your cable provider, giving them your name, address, etc. and then ask them for your password. Or continue to grouse here.

Mark said...

Lots of anger toward NBC and Fios. Seems like some of it has spilled over toward the Swiss. Good, they deserve it what with their big mountains, fancy watches and soldiers who ride bicycles.

And Geoff, I'm hurt you think I'm only looking for ways to insult you by turning your comments around and making you seem like something you clearly aren't. For shame.

And a Happy Lithuania day indeed. The best man in my wedding (which is over a year away) will be Lithuanian so, basically, that makes me the most Lithuanian motherfucker on this blog.

Mark said...

It's really not that simple Z. I tried that recently for my WEP Key. I was on the phone for a half hour.

rob said...

i choose 'b' zoltan. eat a dick.

rob said...

that wasn't very nice of me. see what nbc has driven me to?

rob said...

tribe/mason is on masn for you dc peeps that are too lazy to come to fairfax.

Mark said...

It's all Mary Carillo's fault.

Geoff said...

Just to spite Zoltan, I just called Fios. They will let me reset my password and userID, but they won't give my current info to me over the phone nor will they email it to me, and if they reset my password they need to give me a new router. So go choke on Dick Ebersol's dick for a while Drew.

zoltan said...

roberto: I have a giant bag of dicks next to me in the form of subject-specific law outlines, and I'm chowing down on them like a fat kid with a 7-layer cake.

rob said...

that's a whole truckload of funny right there

zoltan said...

That's what you get for going with some fancy Greek ISP I guess.

rob said...

isn't it 7-layer dip?

zoltan said...

Maybe. It's a modified 50 Cent lyric. Tis a sad day when I start biting off Fiddy.

Marls said...

I do love the anger about not being able to watch TV at work.

Geoff said...

Its our right as Americans.

rob said...

tribe/mason starting well. standing outside will call waiting for shlara and kq while the anthem plays.

Marls said...

What is the enviroment like inside the Patriot Dome?

Marls said...

Weren't you late for the Maryland game too? Good karma.

rob said...

karma is huge. the teej, dennis, and jerry made it in for the tip. hope they don't fuck it up.

rob said...

w&m ad terry driscoll just stood in the will call line to get his tix. solid character move. more karma.

mayhugh said...

Watching on TV even though I live like a mile away. Tribe has been swatted on 3 of 6 possessions I've watched.

mayhugh said...

UNC Wilmington up by 13 on Northeastern right now.

mayhugh said...

Nice give and go to Hess.

TJ said...

69 seconds to go in the half...bad times for Les Tribe

mayhugh said...

Decent start to the half. 5 straight points, followed by Mason timeout.

TJ said...

Seven minutes to play...we all tied...

rob said...

triiiibe, hmmmm

TJ said...

I just yelled "academic success" at the mason troglodytes

TJ said...

Rob, you better be representin'

mayhugh said...

BIG BUCKET SUMNER. Tribe by 3

mayhugh said...

And again...

TJ said...

Make

Free
Throws

TJ said...

Dennis about to accost a ref

mayhugh said...

HOLY SHIT. A DEFENSIVE STOP BY THE TRIBE.

mayhugh said...

Tribe wins by three. Awesome.

Mark said...

WOW...no, really. Wow. Huge win for the the Tribe. I didn't realy give them much shot going into Mason's home arena.

Mark said...

I just walked in on a press conference so I could be wrong...but it appears George Karl has cancer...again.

rob said...

tribe, bitches. my phone died with about 4 minutes left. but that was something else.

Shlara said...

All I saw was the second half, but it was worth the two hours of traffic to watch the win.

And, now that I have an iPhone, there needs to be a GTB app.
