Metal Up Your Ass Friday, Featuring Pantera

It's the first of April, bitches. Baseball is starting. College basketball is ending. Tulips are blooming. So get fired up with Phil Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell (RIP), Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown.

I think "Walk" would have made more sense as a baseball tie-in. Unless this is supposed to be a Red Sox "cowboy up" reference, in which case it's terrible.

It's far too nice outside for me to be inside working today. I believe I'll rectify that...in an hour or so.

steve phillips: 'thank god for steroids. they helped bring the game back'. lord forgive me, i see his point.

Dave said...

pantera is fitting. the tulips are not blooming-- in fact, it is snowing like fuck right now in new jersey.

I wonder if Chad Pennington gets a frequent-flyer discount from James Andrews. Or maybe he has one of those punch cards like you get at the deli -- buy 10 ligament surgeries, get the 11th free.

Buckles & Danimal will be reporting live tomorrow from Houston. I'm sure we'll be totally coherent.

T.J. said...

Greg is down there as well

Mark said...

I think Danimal should meet Greg. And grab some purple drank while in Screwston.

Why is Nolan Ryan sitting in between George & Laura Bush? Are they like two children in the backseat of a car during a road trip when they go to a baseball game?

The beginning of the baseball season arrives with Lester getting fairly well hammered. Yep.

Squeaky said...

One thing Lester is great at is getting hammered.

Wait, you talking about the Red Sox pitcher?

Igor said...

The free preview of the Extra Innings package is such good marketing.

Mark said...

As is the Thursday opening day. Except for tomorrow night, it's all baseball all the time. Well played, seemingly clueless MLB assholes, well played.

Igor said...

Wow. The Mets suck already.

Of course, at least they aren't the Indians.

Is your name michael Diamond?

T.J. said...

No, mine's Clarence.

Mark said...

Beastie's references are always a hit round here.

Pretty excited for tonight's games. Will be leaving a friends wedding (yes, another fucking wedding) early so I can watch them both. One downside: I have to root against Kemba and for Kentucky (much,much worse) as a Wildcat win clinches my NCAA tourney pool for me. I fucking hate Kentucky, and I hate their fans even more but, I do love money so...go Kentucky.

Unlike Mark, I'm rooting for UConn to win tonight and then lose to VCU/Butler so I have no conflicts of interest in my quest for cash.

Did anyone read Rick Reilly's hatchet job on Jimmer Fredette? Would he crack similar jokes about Muslim college students?

rob said...

if anyone wants to fill 'er up, that'd be superneat

zman said...

Consider yourself filled.
