The Sunday Morning Hangover

hungoverWe all know what’s up today. We’ve heard the talking heads. We’ve heard our friends. We’re just ready to see it go down at this point. I’m talking about the North Caarolina Lady Tarheels heaving to College Park, MD to take on the Lady Terps! (OK lame joke).

Again, I’ll have my picks in the commenting post, but so far this whole betting thing has been extremely unprofitable and I’m wondering if people ever actually win. LINKS!!!

Terry Glenn arrested for DUI (Jocks Behind Bars)

Mark Visser has ball (Grind TV)

Is there a bias against my fellow redheads in football (Orlando Sentinel)

    No, people do not win sucker bets like teasers and parlays. 1 of the 3 always messes you up. Just pick straight up and you’ll at least cut your losses.

  • Trey

    Not part of the deal, I can’t vote straight up.

    I think in the long run no, but it’s supposed to be more about piquing your interest in a game you aren’t interested in, or giving you a reason to root.

    My wife invited 3 geriatrics to dinner at 4pm. So I’m watching these games on DVR, which is actually good. I can skip all the commericals and all the talking.

    That is the worst part, IMO.

    the worst part is being forced to cook dinner for my wife and the three geriatrics, since I was given no choice on the invitation. And two of them are demented to varying degrees, and we aren’t related to any of them.

  • Trey

    What you cooking?

    I am not demented. I’m………….I’m…………….oh look a birdie.

  • TheTicketMaster

    I’m trying to figure out my best watching strategy today. I have the opposite of geriatrics. Two kids, a play date and a nap from noon to 1:30 for one.

    I think i can squeeze in 1st quarter of Bears/Packs and then the rest will be DVR. But no way I can make it from 2pm to 8 pm (bedtimes) without checking/hearing scores, and i don’t want to speed through 2 football games beginning at 8:30 pm.

    Thoughts? Advice?

    Settling in to watch a big match at World Handball Championships. Croatia vs. home team Sweden.

    a standing rib roast. Some friends of ours were supposed to be over last night, but the chick got pregg-o and is now too sick to be eating over, so I had it out already, and my wife asked me if we should invite the neighbors and their mother in front of the neighbor. Sucksville.

    the kids wont’ watch the game? I guess the play date thing makes it harder, since there’s other kids over. I hope there’s a hot mommy bringing the kids over. Usually, that’s an easy thing to focus on. If it’s an ugly mommy, just put the game on and keep tabs on who is driving and how. Watch later for details. The talking is all superfluous, so it can be skipped or muted.
    Is your wife around? If she is, take a stand about there only being 3 games left, and go to your room, or a bar. If she’s not around, and the mom is not hot, I don’t know what to tell you.

    love that game, although I wouldn’t mind seeing the shooting circle a little closer in, and the goal slightly smaller.

    Marry better next time?

  • TexansFan

    nothing pisses me off more than having to watch a game on DVR because the wife wants to take advantage of that. You end up having to avoid everything on your phone (texts, facebook, calls) while the game is on if you’re out. And you better be lucky enough to go to a restaraunt without a tv or you’ll be looking down the whole game. I did that for the Jets vs Pats game and I still ended up seeing the score because I looked up at the press conference after the game. Live football > recorded football.

  • clayton

    Live football > recorded football.

    recorded football, dinner at home, a nice leisurely screw > Live football > recorded football after going out into the world and finding out the score.

    Carson Palmer is going to demand a trade from the Bengals and threaten to retire if he doesn’t get it

    Honestly stop laughing. I’m not making this up

    Seriously I’m not. Don’t laugh

    Wisconsin is curb stomping Northwestern 65-30. Ouch

    It may have been a very good decision to upgrade my 6 year old 27 inch tv to a 46 inch brand new one.

    I consider myself fairly intelligent, but this is so far beyond my comprehension.

  • Johnny

    Cabbage I only have a cursory knowledge of quantum mechanics partly because I view the concepts almost voodoo like and the math is a bitch, but this seems to sorta make sense I guess

  • cabbage

    I’ve got a degree in math, topology was my favorite subject, and I once wrote a killer thesis dealing with Conformal Mappings on a Reimann Surface.

    This is still “way out there”.

    anybody ever read the book Chaos? one of my favorite books and so far over my head.

    fascinating stuff.

  • cabbage

    That was easy.

  • Johnny

    No I haven’t read it Miz. I have read some science type books by michio kaku that was entertaining. I also have the book Steven Hawking wrote a year or so ago but haven’t read it yet because I’ve been on a fiction kick recently
