Happy Labor Day

Perhaps Mark has a college football post in the works, but I'm not sure, so let this poorly chosen clip serve as a placeholder until something better comes along (hopefully)...

I would've preferred a Kathleen Turner Overdrive clip.

d-train said...

you guys playin' any golf this wkd? please do, and if not, give a buck or two to foldsofhonor.com
a good cause....remember when i was in oklahoma a few months back - well was meeting w/major dan rooney who you'll see all over the tv this wkd if you haven't already - he teed it up with 43 this morning in Waco...good peeps and a good cause, plus he hired our company due to some serious schlepping skills...get'r done

Mark said...

I'm efforting a CFB post, but "work" keeps getting in the way. Total bullshit, I know.

T.J. said...

d-train, that website has been tweeted.

d-train said...

excellent. cheers.

T.J. said...

Norv Turner Overdrive was...mediocre.

But everyone once in awhile Norv stuck to the bass guitar and let Jerry rock it on the mic. That's when they made their sweetest music.

Igor said...

Ike Turner Overdrive could really beat that drum.

Greg said...

EAT THE CAKE ANNA MAY!!!

zman said...

Not like the Nat Turner Overdrive though.

Igor said...

Sir Isaac Newton, the father of modern science immortalized in The Sounds of Science, "never married and is believed to have been asexual, being highly engrossed in his studies and work."

In his next life, he returned as a co-ed at The College of William & Mary.

rob said...

your william & mary wrens play @ uva, @ richmond, @ syracuse, and @ unc this season. wooooo, doggie.

rob said...

here's the whole ooc schedule: http://bit.ly/btfUN6

Also around the tri-corner...

Researchers: Williamsburg colonists buried pets
A finding from the College of William and Mary may change attitudes about how colonists treated their pets.

Laboratory analysis at the college has found that some bone fragments recovered this summer in unmarked graves on campus belonged not to humans but to dogs, buried two centuries ago.

The finding is apparently unprecedented. Colonists were not previously known to have buried their pets in formal graves.



In other news, the College of William & Mary has cut the Archaeology program after realizing what they are spending their time doing.

Igor said...

As Geoff mentioned, Malcolm Kelly injured his hamstring. Again. And now he's on IR, done for the year.

It seems he tore his hammy, or as Redskins.com writer Gary Fitzgerald wrote on the website:

"Mike Shanahan indicated that Kelly had teared his hamstring early in camp.

Really? He teared his hamstring? Was that on the same play when McNabb throwed him the ball and he falled down? For fuck's sake, man. Maybe on Chester Douchebuckle's 5th grade Skins Fan Club blog, that'll slide, but on the Redskins' official site? That really maked me wonder.

Dave said...

this pet thing sounds fishy. if the graves were unmarked, then who cares? it's hot and humid in williamsburg-- you're not going to let a dog rot and fester in the sun, you're going to bury it. so what? i do not think this warrants a news story.

and if you haven't been to "sentence of dave" today, you'll find plenty of other stuff that doesn't deserve to be in print.

d-train said...

MAKES me wonder Igor...MAKES

zman said...

Yeah, what are your options for dead pet disposal other than burial? Cremation? Dinner? Nail it to your friend's door?

Squeaky said...

Zman, definitely option D. Nail it to the door! While hurling various pieces of fruit at it.

Mark said...

I concur. Nailing it to the door is definitely the way to go...

zman said...

Five legitimate articles in the past 37 days from Bill Simmons? That's just about one a week! I guess he reads the comments at G:TB and got motivated to actually write again instead of just casting pods.

Speaking of which, I'm surprised no one has cast a pod here recently. Another recurring bit bites the dust.

d-train said...

okay...just did a little pruning in the yard. my wife will never have me do that again which was my aim. i'm off to swim for a spell. when i return, i do expect to have our cfb post. thank you.

zman said...

If you're buying a car and trying to figure out whether or not to pony up the extra cash for xenon headlights, don't do it. You need a Ph.D. in electrical engineering to replace the bulb. Which cost about $180 each. I am bitter.

mayhugh said...

Whatever preview you have coming, you may want to grab Geoff's input on Desmond Howard's suit-shirt-tie ensemble. He looks like an absolute dandy. In a good way.

T.J. said...

Heading over shortly to Jerome's Sports Cave for multiple tv cfb viewing fun.

D-train, hop on a plane...

mayhugh said...

And TJ, we may want to discuss taking in a Piranha-Machete double feature. Camp is in, this summer.

mayhugh said...

TJ - I'll see you in the car.

-Milhouse

T.J. said...

Somewhere Jerry is smirking because the Lions just cut cock-blocker extraordinaire Jon Jansen.

mayhugh said...

Big and Rich very prevalent on GameDay. Is this 2004?

d-train said...

miami of ohio...wow -did you guys see the fake punt?

if things stay as is, it will be a very poor start to the wagering season.

d-train said...

the teej - would love to. not sure it would be worth the homelessness though.

T.J. said...

This Serbia/Croatia game is absurd.

mayhugh said...

Mark - I think Florida has gotten enough practice running the bubble screen.

d-train said...

the first rb&v of the season has been poured.

T.J. said...

Tribe game, 330, CSNE on DirecTV.

d-train said...

yeah, i'm all over the tribe game.

the biggest improvement thus far, early in this nd game, is brian kelly's attire. no 4X hoody sweatshirt with matching pants. nice job bk.

zman said...

The Cardinals cut Matt Leinart in favor of Derek Anderson. Crazy.

T.J. said...

Irish!!!!

d-train said...

nice nice drive. spread it all over the place.

d-train said...

seriously folks...texting & driving....what's up with that?

rob said...

nervous time for the teej and d-train

d-train said...

yes - it was almost another ulcer inducing game. should have never been so.

a nice slate of baw game this evening.

should we send out a search party for mark? so unlike him. i'm worried sick.

Igor said...

Tribe loses to UMass? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot...

I'm at the ODU/Jacksonville game. College football rules.

d-train said...

igor...that's not college football. just sayin.

d-train said...

jax state beats ole miss?

tcu helmets - fresh.

jesse palmer - he's so gq.

gtb's fashion guru - dtrain

d-train said...

unc fumble on 1st play from scrimmage...where was the tutor on that play?

Geoff said...

Jesse Palmer's picture can be found in my hope chest.

The girl who just handed the replay headset to the ref at the Georgia Dome needs to try a new shampoo.

d-train said...

it make me feel warm & fuzzy knowing someone else here has a hope chest.

d-train said...

lsu's qb - george jefferson. did not know that. his shirt does look a little starchy though.

Geoff said...

Where do other people keep their dream diaries?

d-train said...

i keep mine in the dollhouse, under the floorboards.

Geoff said...

Beavers on top. Like the sound of that Robert Flores.

Geoff said...

Show of hands: Who thinks VTech is going to beat the bag out of Boise St?

Geoff said...

It kind of looks like the TCU players made their own uniforms.

Geoff said...

Couldn't figure out where TJ is tonight...then I just realized that Bill & Ted's is on HBO right now.

d-train said...

geoff - i hope you're right about vt...but i don't see them winning.

the lack of visibility between the teej, and mark, of all days, is disappointing. i may have to cancel my subscription to this site.

on a fitness note - no more training. why? well, skechers shape-ups of course. getchyaself some.

Geoff said...

Shape ups aren't just effective...they also look sharp.

Mark is on the twitter machine tonight...but can't make time for G:TB apparently.

I don't know much about much, but I think that thing on Beamer's neck is more than Boise St. can handle.

d-train said...

what is mark's twitter machine handle? i love finding new people to follow on the twitter machine.

Geoff said...

Mike London and the Cavaqueers are getting it done...ish...

Geoff said...

@bugdust11 But you probably could have guessed that...

d-train said...

i think that game was closer than score indicates...looks like another great yr for the spidey's....and another turrible one for the who's. ya gotta take the good w/the bad.

and who woulda thunk robert gibbs was such a big fball freak? he's a war eagle and all over the twitter machine. i bet he was fun to hang out w/in college.

Geoff said...

The Redskins 53 man roster is now available. Ijust carefully reviewed it. Immediately takeaways: receiving corps is old, but at least they're slow; the secondary could be a real shitshow; O-line will be much better.

Geoff said...

Yeah, by all accounts Gibbs is a good dude.

If I was in a band, our new album would be called Illegal Touching.

d-train said...

omg...are you seeing the cleavage from what's her face, the espn sideline chick in oregon state game? she's a hawg.

Geoff said...

In a lisp off between Mike Mayock and Lou Holtz...who ya got?

Geoff said...

Yeah, Holly Rowe...she has a W&M Tribe vibe that reminds me of some of my late night dance floor escapades.

T.J. said...

As noted at 11:30am, I am at Jerome's Sports Cave...with TNT, Joe Kickass, Mayhugh and Slats.

d-train said...

holtzch...he'ths unbeatable

Geoff said...

Ah yes TJ...I remember when I had "friends" and a life.

d-train said...

wow the teej. that's an impressive post-up for opening wkd. do they sell beer there?

d-train said...

the teej must be single and w/out childs?

T.J. said...

The Teej and company are indeed reliving some decades ago fun...

Geoff said...

Kind of and yes. Much like Miley Cyrus' relationship status, "its complicated."

d-train said...

i had some late night dance escapades in the tribe nation. love those kappa sigs.

Geoff said...

Yeah, those guys were hot...

T.J. said...

Why did TCU allow COBRA Commander to design their unis?

Geoff said...

And who put the blue duct tape on their shoulders?

d-train said...

sorry but i like'em. baby jesus designed them.

Geoff said...

I find that the drunk driving ads where the window rolls down and alcohol comes pouring out make me want a drink. Is this indicative of a problem?

d-train said...

is there anyone else out there that think pouncey is caught up in a point shaving scheme?

d-train said...

geoff - only if you don't want to drink.

i thought about that commercial for about 10 min today...that's a lot of effort and $ to make a little 30-sec commercial. they need to be on an episode of "how'd they do that?"

Geoff said...

Yeah, I spent some time thinking about which car I'd want to be in and I picked the martini...because if I got bored I could swim around and eat all the olives.

d-train said...

speaking of drinking, and b/c i still find it fulfilling to talk about alcohol intake, i've emptied 4 bottles thus far....they were all leftovers from last season and needed to take care of some housecleaning prior to the season's ligger run. a vodka, 2 bourbon's, and a cap'ns...i AM an ironman.

d-train said...

lsu.

Geoff said...

I just polished off a bottle of Springbank 14 yr...it gives me what I need to sleep thru the late night cries of my children.

Geoff said...

Whats the worst school academically in the SEC? Is it Miss St? LSU? There's a lot of competition for that honor.

d-train said...

very nice, but you have it backwards. the kids should have polished off the springbank so they could sleep through your football fandom.

i gotta go w/lsu...only reference point is jamarcus...not much else to say there.

d-train said...

wash byu on versus...shapin up to be a good one

Geoff said...

My wife and I have debated the merits of giving our children pre-bedtime cordials. I was on the losing end of said debate.

LSU...bringing the wood.

Geoff said...

My Versus is showing Indy car...what the shit?

d-train said...

it only figures...tried to get a bet in 10 min b4 game...on lsu...window closed.

T.J. said...

Andy Dalton...the Cooler.

Geoff said...

Jayhawks losing to ND State in the 4th qtr. Mangino ate all the old playbooks/prospects.

d-train said...

and utah state down 7 to oklahoma headin into q4.

T.J. said...

Nice debut Turner Gill.

T.J. said...

Wisconsin/UNLV on Versus at 11.

d-train said...

do think the most interesting man in the world could get his own tv show?

d-train said...

holly sims used to be the mascot at arksansas. she didn't wear a uniform.

d-train said...

am rethinking my previous props to tcu uni's the more i see...i like the helmets - i'm a fan of squiggly lines. everything else not so much

d-train said...

and as i say that, holly explained the uniforms - nike designed...it's a "hell freezes over" theme...won't waste ligament use trying to explain it.
