Best Dad? This Dad. Worst Dad? Same Dad.

Not sure where to begin with this one. Let's just say this clip straddles the line between loving speed metal and blatantly disregarding your child's safety.



Conclusion: Metal > Baby (to this dad, at least)

Those speakers look like there are straight from the 90's. And from the guy driving the van around saying his boss messed up, gave him extras and would you like to buy them cheap.

rob said...

how did you find scott macdonald's home movies?

zman said...

Squeaky - that's exactly the guy who sold JP his Stonehenge speaker setup.

Anyone watching federerer? Against ropes.

Danimal said...

And now down. 1st time ever being up 2-0 and losing. Mental game has been served some pretty big blows.
Nadal being interviewed by gussied up chris Evert and Hannah storm...you can see the moistness.

Danimal said...

OK. Just saw today's paper. I guess federer lost yesterday which all of you were likely aware of. No need to comment on that. Thanks.

Hey danimal, guess what, we caught Osama Bin Laden.

Danimal said...

Duh....like a week ago.

People need to stop falling from W Hotels and dying.

Dave said...

that video is funny for twenty seconds then goes on for an uncomfortably long time, a long enough time for that kid to learn to read-- i love it but that kids going to have brain damage by age three.

Jerry Beach said...

That kid's receding hairline is the least of his problems.

and tulsa/okla could be decent. who the hell knows at this point?

zman said...

I don't think anyone else ever said that Tulsa Oklahoma is decent. A dump, yes. Decent, no.

rob said...

how have i never seen gruden do one of these one on one's with quarterbacks? watching him with terrell pryor. this is spectacular television.

Mark said...

I'm not sure how you missed those Rob. He did 4 or 5 leading up to this year's draft. He even did one with Nick Fairley. I could never quite figure out why.

Danimal said...

I bet rob didn't know about federer either.

zman said...

rob -- you're watching too much soccer.

Mark said...

That's because he's a pervert. Anybody else off today. Mmmm, 4 day weekend.

rob said...

i was aware of gruden's pre-draft shows, just never bothered to watch. mistake on my part.

Jerry said...

Interesting (to me): The only place to watch Copa America live in English is on Youtube.

I will expect an in-depth preview of Wrens/Cavs as we get closer to the game date. I like the alma mater's chances again this year. Lots of guys coming back, UVA still in the infancy of building their program bak up.

Mark (and anybody else who cares) - decent, but not overwhelmingly good, brief summary of Klitchko/Haye on Grantland. I'm looking forward to this fight, and I generally hate heavyweight fights. Haye is fun to listen to, his brashness bordering on the absurd with his cockney accent. He has experience fighting monstrously huge boxers who like to hold a lot (he beat Nikolai Valuev, the 7 footer). Wladimir has a lot more power, and more punches to throw (if he chooses to throw anything but jabs and the occasional straight right) than Valuev, so will be interesting to see. I think Klitchko wins in his normal boring style but if Haye can box slick I give him a chance and it might even be entertaining.

Danimal said...

not off today and will likely have to work a wee bit on monday. am still licking wounds after a mid-week 2-day bender.

zman said...

mayhuge -- is the fight pay-per-view?

TR said...

Djokovic officially becomes #1 in the world by making it to the finals. If he wins the finals, he will undoubtedly be the #1 in the world, with 2 grand slam titles this year. That makes Federer only the 3rd best. Hard to believe.

mayhugh said...

Z - it's on HBo, thought I think it's a weird time (afternoon?) for us because it's taking place in Europe.

zman said...

I just realized that many of our summer interns graduated from college in 2009, which means they are 13 years younger than me, which means that I appear to them the way a 50-year-old appears to me.

Danimal said...

you're old as shit.
kind of like the other day speaking with a young kid that works with us. told him i saw u2 for the first time in '87. his response - "that was the year i was born"

Danimal said...

i meant to say that you're old as sandwich.

Danimal said...

2 good video posts in a row....just got around to watching children's hospital. much audible laughter.
who is still at work?

Danimal said...

well awright awright

I am driving to Knoxville, TN from SE VA in a car with four kids. There's needing a beer and then there's needing a beer. Plenty of them waiting for me in Vol Land, but I may need to apply a road soda primer.

Shlara said...

I'm still at work...boo!

zman said...

I've been at home for 2 hours, drinking bumpers of Samuel Smith's India Ale and Red Stripe.

Whitney said...

So I just learned the term "Mouse's Ear" because we passed a billboard for the gentlemen's club of the same name in Johnson City. (irony) I googled it and found multiple definitions in the urban dictionary -- all colorful. My favorite was the one that included the helpful addendum -- "the opposite of a clown's pocket."

You learn something every day!

rob said...

spent the day in provincetown. kids learned some new stuff, some to be posted for your amusement tomorrow morning.

zman said...

Along similar lines, during an impromptu G&W session a colleague described a woman as having J.Y.P., which, upon further questioning, was established to be an acronym for junkyard pussy.

rob said...

zman, i bumped your post to sunday. we've got a strong to quite strong holiday weekend lineup. quite unlike that of the red sox, who are starting drew sutton in left and losing to the astros.

Mark said...

Did Rob just try to casually pull rank on Z? What a dick.

zman said...

I like how he's building the suspense for the long weekend. We better have good material.

rob said...

i just chased a fox out of my yard. it was trying to kill my neighbor's cat. fucking wild kingdom here on cape cod.

zman said...

Lots of bears too.

rob said...

saw a bunch of them this afternoon

world said...
