Saturday Shorties

Continuing the white-guy funk festival theme, I saw Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue at a small venue on Thursday night (I'm the white guy in this case, though several members of Shorty's terrific band are also caucasoids). The video below isn't the best quality, but it'll give you a decent sense of the vibe at a Shorty show. Two paws way up - see the man if he comes to a town near you.



And my own little shorty turns 6 whole years old today. Two paws up for her, too.

i don't know if this is a great minds thing, or if i should be worried, but i had exactly the same thought as dave regarding the australian short-track skating uniform. i even spent a few minutes trying to figure out the design inspiration.

Dave said...

alex turns six in two days. pool party today.

the design inspirations is this: I AM SPOOKY. DO NOT PASS ME!

Mark said...

Cute kid. Probably already taller than her Dad.

Also, this has to be the worst winter I've ever experienced in Florida. Far colder for far longer stretches than anything I've ever seen or felt. It's currently 45 degrees and pouring fucking rain. Hey, at least Spring Training is only a week away.

rob said...

mason loses to northeastern. tribe clinches a first round tourney bye with a win over uncw or a vcu loss combined with a drexel win.

Whitney said...

Told my friend to grab me one of whatever he was getting at the bar last night. A "margatini" was what he brought back. I mocked him. And drank it. It's pretty much a glass of tequila. And then I had 6 more. And then apparently I was abducted by aliens because it all goes blank for a while. Beware this cocktail.

It's taking a lot of PBR's to come back from that today.

Dan said...

was your butt sore this morning?

Dave said...

or even worse, was your mouth sore?

Greg said...

Yes, did the aliens gang-probe you?

Whitney said...

Well, my digestive system has flown by "not quite right" and landed somewhere near "downright awful." I'm fairly certain I got an alien anal probe. Not that there's anything wrong with it.

On the topic of gross drinks that are sneaky awesome, the Mangy Moose, the big apr├Ęs ski joint in Jackson Hole, has a bourbon and bacon shot. You suck the bacon, shoot a delicious smoky bourbon, and then eat the bacon. It was very very tasty. I will forward on the name of the bourbon if I remember b/c it's one of the best I've ever had.

Whitney said...

VCU giving the Monarchs all they can handle. The press has ODU befuddled. Tribe not happy.

rob said...

tribe actually is happy. vcu win and tribe win = 3 seed for tribe.

rob said...

'course, that assumes the tribe beats uncw. which, given the tribe's history, is anything but a safe assumption.

Whitney said...

Wait, I thought we were rooting for a VCU loss? You never faxed me my quick reference guide for Impact on the Tribe's Tourney Seeding.

rob said...

vcu loss would mean 4 seed with tribe win or with tribe loss + drexel win. my brain hurts.

rob said...

make that 3 seed with tribe win and 4 with tribe loss + drexel win. fuck it, the tribe needs to win.

Whitney said...

ODU wins. Now what, guru?

rob said...

if the tribe wins, they tie mason at 12-6 and get the 3 seed based on their win over the patriots.

if the tribe loses:

if drexel wins, the tribe, drexel, and vcu are all tied at 11-7 and the tribe gets the 4 seed based on their 3-1 record vs. vcu & drexel. vcu would be the 5 and drexel the 6.

if drexel loses, the tribe would be tied with vcu at 11-7. the tribe would be the 5 seed based on vcu's better record vs. odu.

zoltan said...

I will go out on a (historically sturdy) limb and call the Tribe loss right now.

zoltan said...

And big ups to Bruce Pearl for letting Stevie Wonder pick his clothes for him.

Mark said...

Is The Teej excited for tonight's Big East showdown?

TJ said...

Cuse/Nova in a few gents...very excited.

TJ said...

Mark. Wow. Get outta my brain.

TJ said...

Shitty loss by Florida today in Athens.

Mark said...

Very, very shitty.

Mark said...

Bob Knight loves Andy Rautins. All these guys do. It's an Andy Rautins lovefest.

TJ said...

Tribe will be 11. Cuse looking crisp. Good times.

zoltan said...

The Jets are going to cut Thomas Jones. I think NE will go after him before Tomlinson and whatever other running back detritus is out there.

Shlara said...

So, the Tribe gets the three seed and a first round bye for sure?

And I am going to be on a flight home from Chicago for the USA v canada game today so I'm going to miss all of the excitement. Bummer!

TJ said...

Jason Richardson, you are the bama of the week.

rob said...

usa for the tie! hell yeah.

Mark said...

I have never been more excited for a hockey goal in my life.

Mark said...

One more thing: USA! USA! USA!

Whitney said...

Awesome. Totally awesome.

Whitney said...

Ignorant question: Sudden death all the way or crappy shootouts after a period or two?

Mark said...

4 on 4 for 20 minutes. If nobody scores, it goes to shootout.

Mark said...

I feel like the third Budweiser I cracked pushed Team USA over the top.

Whitney said...

Not a fan of the shootout format. I would hunker down and watch for hours. Sudden death hockey is one of the coolest things in sports.

Whitney said...

And I like the way you think, Mark. I am enjoying the St. George Nut Brown again. The underdog brew.

rob said...

anybody but fucking crosby

Whitney said...

ABFC

Shlara said...

I hate that Crosby kid

rob said...

obama bet canadian prime minister harper a case of beer on the hockey game. that's change we can all believe in.

Geoff said...

I'm sorry Rob, could you repeat that? I'm having trouble understanding you with the First Penis in your mouth.

rob said...

it was a joke, francis.

Geoff said...

Yep, so was mine.

The Russian national anthem is so much better than ours.

rob said...

longer, too. like the first penis.

rob said...

the fuck do those bouncy blobby things represent?

rob said...

why is everyone wearing ponchos? is gallagher closing out the ceremony?
