Playoff Beard? Payoff Beard

"This is a story about a man, and how he achieved his dream  — by doing nothing."

So begins the story of Madison Rowley, the owner of the World Champion Beard of 2014. It also serves as a statement of aspiration that Gheorghies the world over are embracing today. I shall commence doing nothing...as soon as I work up the energy.

your w&m tribe are 10.5 home favorites against the dukes of james madison university this afternoon. that's a stunning line to me. i think the tribe are more talented, and stinging from a bad loss at elon on thursday, but 10.5 is a lot of points. take 'em and take the dukes.

for the record, i'm 1-2 in tribe prognostication thus far, and the wrens are 2-1 ats. i'll be watching my daughter's chorus concert during the game, so marls, you're our only hope.

Getting ready to go coach our first flag football game of season/career/life. Updates at 11.

zman said...

I thought that was a photo of TR and his beard.

Mark said...

The Action Bronson pandora station is so damn good. I listened to it for 3 hours today and didn't skip a single song.

zman said...

I'm writing an AB post in my head. zin-laws are here (huzzah.) so it's only in my head for the foreseeable future.

Whitney said...

I'm growing a beard. 2 weeks in. Abe-related and ridiculous.

Also, our friend's parents just dropped off a big jar of homemade Tennessee peach shine they got from said friends in Knoxville. Will sample this evening. Giddy.

And it's me you're waiting for, not Clarence. In due time.

Boswell's column about the Washington football team today is a good one:

If McCloughan has similar success, it will require that someone solve an addiction problem. That person is Snyder. He’s addicted to NFL instant gratification. That charming enthusiasm can turn into childlike rage. An expensive toy — free agent, coach or GM — gets tossed away. Can the owner curb his fickle impulses?

the knicks, man. damn.

Mark said...

They're beyond embarrassing. Down 45 after 3 quarters to a below average Hornet team. That's pretty astonishing. Even for them.

rob said...

wait. are we witnessing the return of whitney? i thought the man killed that guy.

mr kq said...

Do yourself a favor and type in Mudhoney on the ol' Pandora machine.

On a similar note, I vow to give Action Bronson a go today, even though I initially thought it was some kind of Charles Bronson figurine.

zman said...

Start with Dr. Lecter.

Mark said...

Bronson sound I intially slept on that I play all time time now: The Rockers. Dope beat.

Flacco is good at this playoff stuff.

zman said...

I think Wilfork got even bigger.

Mark said...

The guy assigned with blocking Wilfork for much of the game today, John Urschel, is a published mathematician.

He's much better at life than me.

zman said...

But does he own pitbulls?

Mark said...

That's a good point, Z. I doubt it. Point for me.

Mark said...

Roger Goodell is fucking shameless. http://30fram.es/1y1wE89

zman said...

Huh. I thought the Mueller report segment was a bit stilted.

TR said...

Anybody else doing a night at the museum w/ 200 Cub Scouts instead of watching football? Just me?

Danimal said...

The 3rd installment of the Rob Lowe commercials should have been a Content Rob Lowe.

zman said...

Edelman and Amendola are twins.

Mark said...

Meathead Rob Lowe seems like he's doing pretty well for himself.

TR said...

So the game is boring, right? I'm not missing any fun?

On the flip side, I just saw Dumb Dumb.

rob said...

i'm at the warner theater watching beauty and the beast, tr. i feel you.

zman said...

I hope you DVR'ed the game and avoid all radio and TV on the way home. It's been very competitive.

zman said...

You know this is the best weekend of NFL football, right? Who schedules scouting events and plays for this weekend?

rob said...

the gays

Danimal said...

Kate Upton is way overrated.
What a game!!!!

zman said...

Rudy Gay or Ben Gay?

zman said...

I just yelled out loud at my TV. Great game.

Danimal said...

Btw...we lost our game today 34-20. Game over here too. Disappointing. Would have liked to see the east coast team with annoying accented fans win. Oh well.

zman said...

Gisele Bundchen just streaked the field.

TR said...

Scoutmasters, Zman. They're the kinds of guys that don't watch the Super Bowl.

Mark said...

That was a hell of a game. If feel bad for Rob and TR if I was a nice guy. You all know better than that.

Kate Upton grew up around here but I have to agree with Dan.

I smoked wings today. Half with my usual rub and the other half lemon pepper rub. Both came out great. I'm very full right now.

Mark said...

Kim Chancellor is not of this world.

zman said...

The Bills could use a back like Marshawn Lynch.

Mark said...

And the Bucs could use a defensive lineman like Michael Bennett.

zman said...

I saw the full preview for Jupiter Ascending and it might be the stupidest thing I've seen since GW Bush's last state of the Union address.

Mark said...

Firs triple double in W&M school history tonight by some dude named Tarpey tonight. That's what the Twitter machine told me.

zman said...

Rex Ryan is the next head coach of our beloved Buffalo Bills. I'm enthused. Tremendously. Now all they need is a QB, an RB, some O line help, and an OC.
