On today's edition of Round The Bend…
- We discuss the utter failure of the Redskins yesterday
- SayHey's Birthday over the weekend and Dews' ability to speak in tongues
- Sarah Palin's complete lack of knowledge about the Philly Sports Fan aka the folks who booed Santa
- The new number one College Football team in the country, whose house runs house?!
JackGonzo: Good Morning Everyone and welcome to Round The Bend
JackGonzo: as attempt to be Switzerland between German Kitty and French Puppy
10:32 AM as I
Dews: Let be the first to Congratulate Gonzo on his #1 Rankings
Dews: Red River rivalry seemed to work out for ya
JackGonzo: EVERYTHING seemed to work out for us this weekend
JackGonzo: OK State beat Mizzo
PhillyFan: its there
10:33 AM JackGonzo: LSU was as bad as I told everyone they were
JackGonzo: but that's not the number one story of the weekend
Dews:so is this a "Holiday edition"?
10:38 AM JackGonzo: well lets make that topic number one....how bout them Skins?
obviously a team looking to next week
finally was hyped as the favorite, and totally ignored how much parity there is in Football if you don't plan and play hard
10:39 AM JackGonzo: of all the scores I expected to see yesterday, losing to Jim Haslett? Not one of them
Someone give SayHey the electric shock
Dews: he may still be recovering
JackGonzo: well the seahawks always did find ways to lose to the Rams the last few years
10:40 AM Dews: we just looked like a team going through the motions and making obvious mental mistakes
we hadn't had an offensive turnover until that game afterall
10:41 AM JackGonzo: completely spent last week?
Dews: and looked positively "Romo-esque" all game with puttin the ball on the carpet
Speaking of, my heart goes out to "Boys" fans for Homo-Romo's broken Pinky...
Dews: Poor Romo...
I sure hope he heals quickly....
JackGonzo: Let's talk about "this year's super bowl champions" how bout dem cowboys?!
Dews: yes, clearly just as good as the 07 Patriots
as everyone was saying
Hell, all Kurt Warner needs right now is Marshall Faulk
10:44 AM Dews: James and Hightower seem like passable options
you get a healthy Boldin back in there, thats a scary team
JackGonzo: Memo to Detroit, this is how you actually draft receivers
Dews: Detroit needs to never draft a receiver again
10:45 AM they should just admit they're cursed, and move on
JackGonzo: the only good one they drafted....to steal a line from prime time...where'd he go to school? Texas
Dews: yea exactly
10:46 AM JackGonzo: Topic number two, how totally trashed did Dews get at SayHey's birthday?
Dews: <----------------------> this much
MoDews: He stopped speaking English
10:47 AM Dews: I was speaking a Vermont dialect
known as "Granitevillian"
JackGonzo: You should have called the RNC if he was speaking in tounges
JackGonzo: he then could of given the benediction thing at the beginning of congress
10:48 AM Dews: good call, maybe I could still do that
I don't recall being that trashed
I do recall being ill though
JackGonzo: Yes, but it must have been pretty bad pretty early if MoDews remembers
10:50 AM Dews: MoDews was feelin that Pina Colada from the Caps game too
not like he was all innocent
PhillyFan: New window worked...finally in!
Dews: thats... what she said?
JackGonzo: I feel bad talking bout SayHey's birthday without him, but he's an old man now and shouldn't be sleeping at work
10:51 AM Dews: agreed
SayHey: Hey Hey
Dews: there he is
SayHey: FUnny, just checked my email
Working from home is exhausting
JackGonzo: Pay more attention grandpas
Noodle: hey sorry i gotta head into work gmail is blocked at work
JackGonzo: I know SayHey is in an interesting conundrum
SayHey: Soon, youll know my pain
Noodle: i can't believe the skins lost to the poo poo rams
Dews: agreed Noodle
10:52 AM SayHey: Yeh, Redskins lost that fight
Dews: was painful
Noodle: i'm already feeling it but hanging in there
PhillyFan: I missed the last two minutes of that game
although Morrison must have been happy I wasn't there to laugh at him
Dews: yea, it was probably best you left early Philly Fan
SayHey: Yeh, lots of drama in that one
PhillyFan: like he did to me last week
JackGonzo: Can't talk shit to PhillyFan about the game yesterday...and he can't talk shit about the Phillies cause then that gives good reviews to the Dodgers...good thing he's probably still hungover
SayHey: Philly fan...........grrrrrr so angry
10:53 AM PhillyFan: :)
SayHey: Yeh, Bridget, you win this battle =)
Dews: yea really, wha happen Niners???
JackGonzo: Let's get to topic number three real quick before we just dive into the playoffs
SayHey: I saw improvements, but it all boils down to a solid QB
PhillyFan: Next week you have giants, right?
SayHey: Which we dont have
10:54 AM JackGonzo: and PhillyFan should enjoy this one
As we all know Sarah Palin dropped the puck at the Flyers (booo hisss) home opener on Saturday
PhillyFan: I saw!
Jimmie posted it
10:55 AM JackGonzo: now, this tells you how little Ms Palin understands things outside of Alaska
Looks like Sarah brought her daughters along as a human shields:
The GOP Vice-Presidential nominee said at an earlier fundraiser that she would stop some of the booing from the rowdy Philadelphia fans by putting her seven year old daughter, Piper in a Flyers jersey. She said, "How dare they boo Piper!"
10:56 AM Dews: didn't they boo some really famous guy a while ago that gives stuff away to people?
<-- Promised not to joke about that anymore though...
SayHey: Bullshit Dews
JackGonzo: Now, does this show out of touch Govenbabe is if she doesn't understand or know about Philly's reputation?
SayHey: We will ALWAYS joke about that
Palin booed in Philly
SayHey: Ah, quick drop in.....Romo out for 4 weeks. YAY
10:57 AM heard that one... poor Romo... ;)
Dews: Ohhhhh Pooooooooor Roooomooooooo
Jessica must be heart broken
Noodle: i gotta run to work i will ttyl send me an e-mail transcript
JackGonzo: She must be thrilled
10:58 AM Dews: will do Noodle
Noodle: eric i want to hear how your bday went
SayHey: I havent seen that much booing since Santa
JackGonzo: this mean she gets to tend to his every need
and he will go absolutely insane having to listen to her talk
10:59 AM though then they will break up and if history tells us anything, as with Lachey, he will move up in the world with something smarter and hotter
SayHey: Noodle- Birthday went great
Played rockband 2 until I lost my voice
JackGonzo: Yes, let's hear birthday stories as when that was happening I was on my feet all day selling shit
11:00 AM SayHey: WIsh you and Jack were in town for the celebrations
Dews: it was a lot of fun
PhillyFan: I took a nap on Dews' bed
SayHey: Yeh, Friday night we had about 15 peeps (incuding my mom) goto Acadiana for a nice dinner
Then party at the house Saturday night
PhillyFan: Fun party...I think
Dews: it was a lotta fun
11:01 AM JackGonzo: Strange women taking naps on strange beds, next on maury
SayHey: And that Rays win in the 11th wqas the perfect end to that night
Dews: PhillyFan was a lil sauced
PhillyFan: You remember me. haha I don't know details
I was tired :)
SayHey: Well........You dont remember because you, well, you know =)
Tired = something else
But yeh, Rachel made a Wii cake
JackGonzo: in the famous words of the original LT...totally trashed
SayHey: It was fricken awesome and tastey
11:02 AM JackGonzo: ah so that's what that picture is
SayHey: Well, Phillyfan was renamed Ricky Williams Sat night
PhillyFan: I didn't have any cake! But Dia made some really good apps too... and there were little Say Hey "Mii" things
haha wow thanks.
Blame CowboysFan: for that...I do :)
11:03 AM SayHey: CowboysFan was Cheech
JackGonzo: we always blame CowboyFan for that
no, CowboyFan is Chong
SayHey: LOL true
11:04 AM But it was good times never the less. Again, it would have been even better had Jack and Noodle been in VA
You were both missed
but yea, was a great time
JackGonzo: My feet still haven't recovered from standing for ten hours at a time in ren boots on Saturday and Sunday, though I did make some good cash
11:05 AM it would have been awesome to have been there, and I tried, but at least I'm somewhat working now
SayHey: Oh, most understandable
We have the bachelor party in March
So plenty of party time
Oh, I may have missed this, but congrats on Texas being #1
JackGonzo: in the words of Paul Bearer ohhhhh yessssssss
11:06 AM SayHey: lol
I think we will book the flight this weekend, and pass on whatever information to you afterwards
JackGonzo: For Nawlins?
Cause I'm driving
11:07 AM JackGonzo: Cause...I can
SayHey: Well, more definite time and dates
Go and drive, its cheaper and quicker for you
PhillyFan: How long is that drive?
11:08 AM JackGonzo: google maps says 5.5 hours
so about 4
SayHey: All Gonzo needs is some Henry Rollins to cut the drive time
Get him fired up = Lead foot
JackGonzo: hell during that time I'll just be listening to the tournament
11:09 AM PhillyFan: Nice... That city was great....loved it once I finally made it there
Dews: ahh right
JackGonzo: Now there's an important question we have for SayHey...does this change your vote?
SayHey: Nah, I was never a real UNC hater
11:10 AM If it were coach K, id have to vote for Mickey Mouse
Dews: I swear they put something into the water in the DC area to hate Duke, cause I do too for no reason at all
hell, they even won me some money
JackGonzo: you know if we got Jordan, Woods and Gretzkey to come out for Obama it would be over
SayHey: lol, well, VCU knocked em out in the tourney 2 years ago
11:11 AM I feel complete ownership over them
Dews: well, Catamounts lost to them 4 years ago after beating Syracuse, so I guess that could be a reason
SayHey: Take on Butch Davis and UNC football?
He is red hot
11:12 AM JackGonzo: Why? Cause he beat Notre Dame? I could get a bunch of local kids together and beat Notre Dame right now
SayHey: Well, UNC was shit for many years
JackGonzo: Well ever since Mack Brown left...
SayHey: Turned atound the entire program
JackGonzo: of course, he's a great college guy
11:13 AM SayHey: Shitty pro coach
JackGonzo: we saw the talent he produced at the U...half the NFL are former U players
11:15 AM So 538's latest projection has Obama with almost a 94% win percentage
McCain's numbers are below that of Bush right now
11:16 AM Dews: last polls I was seeing averaged a 8-10 point advantage for Obama
nationally that is
PhillyFan: Wow...someone won't be happy when he gets back from Easter Island
11:17 AM Dews: serves him rght
gallavanting with some random exotic culture
11:18 AM he's supposed to be America Gawd damnit
Dews: Fuck Ya!
JackGonzo: now, this is an interesting theory
11:19 AM Dews: actually, I'm really surprised that Drudge would be pimping McCain
as McCain overall is not a "Drudge" type candidate
11:20 AM I think a lotta these right wingers are just swallowing hard and saying "screw it", I'll TRY to support him
or at least look like I am to keep my street cred
PhillyFan: That might be true
JackGonzo: Well there is the theory that the Republican Party is just saying fuck it, giving the democrats this election, and hoping to hell that they hang themselves with the rope they've been given
11:21 AM Dews: they really should just concentrate on House and senate races, since the Obama factor is having the most influence on those at the moment
Dems stand to gain significant seats in both
gonna be a rubber stamp congress it looks
just to bad they won't have any money to do anything
and a shit-ton of things to resolve
11:22 AM JackGonzo: This the Republicans know...they know everything is fucked up, like a 16 year old who had a party and the parents are coming home early
11:23 AM Dews: the Palins?
ohhhh, that didn't result in a pregnancy, got it
JackGonzo: what are you talking about? She works from home remember? She'd be the mom supplying the liquor, cause Jesus told her to
11:24 AM Dews: my bad Gonzo
JackGonzo: but this is encouraging news
In the latest Gallup tracking poll, Mr. Obama leads Mr. McCain 50 percent to 43 percent among registered voters. Mr. McCain's deficit in that survey has remained seven percentage points or more for most of the last two weeks.
Since Gallup began presidential polling in 1936, only one candidate has overcome a deficit that large, and this late, to win the White House: Ronald Reagan, who trailed President Jimmy Carter 47 percent to 39 percent in a survey completed on Oct. 26, 1980.
11:25 AM Dews: kind of ominous to use Carter as a reference
11:26 AM JackGonzo: a lil
but it is pleasing to see the VA is a solid Obama state now
though SayHey and Dews need to work on their women and get Indiana on the Obamagon
Dews: yes, all because of us Commnists in NoVa
11:27 AM thats a reach there Jack
other then Bayh, I don't see many folks having success as a "terrorist sympathizer" in Indiana
JackGonzo: right now Indiana looks split
11:28 AM Dews: it has some very progressive parts to it, but overall....
not so much
11:29 AM and I believe SayHey's fiancee is a DC voter
so, don't think that'll help
JackGonzo: DC has voters?
Dews: they don't count, but ya
11:30 AM JackGonzo: and with that, we'll end today, with the only person having a good weekend out of this group was me.
Dews: oh no, I had a great weekend
just not sports wise
JackGonzo: Not only did my team win, we are now number...just win baby
Dews: congrats again man
11:31 AM JackGonzo: Memo to Sooner Nation...suck it, suck it long suck it hard...good night now!
