Today on Round The Bend…
- The cast continues their love affairs with Sonic
- We talk about the drumming the Red Sox received last night and the game tonight
- We discuss the Roy Williams trade and the Shaun Alexander signing
- Predictions for tonight's final Presidential Debate
JackGonzo: Good Morning, and welcome to the last time we'll see McCain with a smile on his face
Dews: You don't know that
Viagra may be on its way
10:29 AM JackGonzo: and very possibly Dewey as well, until next season at least
not just viagra, viva viagra
Dews: hate that commercial...
Its on CNN all freakin day...
JackGonzo: I always prefer the football through the tire swing metaphor too
10:30 AM Dews: Dewey may not be on long, he's having crazy-busy day
the ole "Can't play pool with a rope" joke
JackGonzo: nothing tells your wife that you love her quite like saying she's as wide as a tire swing
right from the heart
JackGonzo: now we need to give electro-shock to the rest of the audience to wake them up
10:31 AM SayHey: Yo
Dews: if jokes about non-working wangs won't work, I dunno what will
JackGonzo: cause of course SayHey is looking off into the distance of his cubicle dreaming of the wonder years where his teams competed
Dews: there we are
SayHey: Busy watching clips of Larry King
Ben Stein pretty much conceded for McCant
Dews: speaking of Viagra...
10:32 AM Dews: paprika?
JackGonzo: or that one, never said I was a speller
Dews: <-- likes to cook :)
JackGonzo: Topic number one, did anyone see the monster shot over the monster by Aybar? The thing went up AND out
SayHey: Yeh, you mastered the chili cheese tots
Dews: yea, was a no-doubter
10:33 AM impressive
JackGonzo: great, now I'm gonna have to go to sonic today for the extra long cooney and tots
SayHey: Yeh, that was a nice shot
I turned the game off at the 6th
Dews: I had to watch it all
JackGonzo: same here, then watch Hellraiser on Chiller till 3am...which may or may not have gotten me in trouble
PhillyFan: Wait! Is sonic on the way to kings dominion?
10:34 AM SayHey: Yes
PhillyFan: If so I am going on Saturday!
Dews: PhillyFan = one track mind
JackGonzo: I don't know, we don't have Kings in Texas
SayHey: Yeh, But its the right track
JackGonzo: sad sad people
Dews: There is a Sonic on the way to anything in Texas
PhillyFan: Although if there is no fried mac and cheese what is the point?
JackGonzo: I don't go to Sonic unless a group is going there and it's the only option
PhillyFan: Ok well I should move to Texas for sonic then
10:35 AM Dews: Fried mac and Cheese isn't on the menu anymore
SayHey: I would go for the hell of it
JackGonzo: There is that option
SayHey: I havent had sonic since my Denton trip
PhillyFan: Try camping in May
Dews: Denton was sooner then that
JackGonzo: PhillyFan can move to texas and start the marticulation of all you stuck in dc fucks
10:36 AM SayHey: Denton was in July
JackGonzo: try...two sundays ago
SayHey: Dews can top that
Dews: I was there this weekend
talked the manager into giving me extra Tot containers so I could make some for SayHey's bday party
SayHey: Id like to thank you again, Dews, for the greatest tease of a gift
PhillyFan: Might be happening :)
SayHey: A Sonic gift card
10:37 AM JackGonzo: So I was wrong, topic number one, all of your unhealthy obsession about a burger joint whose best item is their commercials
Dews: haha, anytime SayHey
SayHey: So i can look at it, stare at it, but never use it =(
PhillyFan: I think if sonic was nearby I wouldn't go there
SayHey: Jack- I sense some sarcasm
PhillyFan: It is just that there is none anywhere closeby :)
Dews: There is one nearby!
10:38 AM SayHey: But anyway, im ready to celebrate a Philly win tonight
JackGonzo: Now to topic number two, last night and tonight...
Dews: I'm resigned to a Philly win, but I won't be "celebrating" it
SayHey: You just dont get it, do ya
JackGonzo: Wosrt playoff loss for the Red Sox ever? Does Philly seal the deal like Dews in the Swerve?
SayHey: Dodgers are evil
10:39 AM Dews: ha, I like the comparison
SayHey: Nah, worst Red Sox playoff loss is Buckner ball
Dews: I can't hate the Dodgers
Dewey: Aaron Effing Boone
SayHey: Oh, good one
Dews: ahh yea
10:40 AM JackGonzo: I didn't say toughest loss, that is obviously Buckner
Dewey: Bucky Dent
Dews: guess there are a few tough ones
JackGonzo: the just completely manhandled loss
Dews: lopsided losses aren't as tough to swallow as close game losses though
or last second comebacks
10:41 AM the numbing sense of disbelief is far worse
JackGonzo: When Willie Aybar launches a ball like it took off from Cape Canaveral, there is a few issues
Dewey: what was the name of that guy in 1946?
Dews: ha, yea
10:42 AM not to interupt Baseball talk, but Palin is in New Hampshire, and I just find it telling that they HAVE to campaign in New hampshire...
10:43 AM SayHey: This is painful to watch
JackGonzo: So I'm assuming we all believe that that Hamels seals the deal like its prom night tonight correct?
SayHey: She just used "Maverick" and "Hero" in the same sentance
Mind = exploded
Dews: Oh, Jack, I was wrong about Indiana by the way, its looking like its in play afterall
Dews: Polls are looking promising
SayHey: Hames will end the game tonight
Dews: I credit our Indiana friends
10:44 AM JackGonzo: so congrats to PhillyFan, her team is in the world series and Mitch Williams is nowhere to be found
Dews: haha, I did see him on a show not too long ago
SayHey: We still have ole Kruk to look forward to
Dews: and yes, I believe Hamels seals the deal
JackGonzo: I miss players like Dykstra
Dews: roid users?
we still have those
10:45 AM SayHey: Well, when your so doped on roids, you dont feel pain
Dews: I miss players like Surhoff...
SayHey: I miss the Daulton time travelors
JackGonzo: then again, last night after the game they kept bringing up that limp son of a bitch and you could see the hate from Ecks and my eyes
SayHey: Yeh, I felt that hate also
10:46 AM SayHey: Dynamite dropin Monte
Dews: yes, good job PhillyFan
PhillyFan: If Cole Hamels doesnt pull through Myers can get a couple hits... :)
shut up Dews
SayHey: I will give the Rays the series in 6
Dews: I vote Myers as their DH for the WS
SayHey: Yeh really
Dews: or have him play First base
PhillyFan: As I was tellin Dews... I want Boston to break the rays' confidence some
Dews: they don't have anyone hittin there right now
SayHey: He has more HR's that Ryan Howard
10:47 AM If Boston still had some key guys, i could see a heartbreak
JackGonzo: I don't think the question is if the Rays will win the series...the real question is can they put up three touchdowns on the Saux?
SayHey: Madden doesnt fuck around tho, he is starting Kazmir tonight
To prevent another Boston miracle
Dews: Kazmir wasn't great last time though
but, may as well go for it
SayHey: I would expect him to rebound after a bad start
10:48 AM Dews: wait, I thought it was Shields?
rematch from Friday
10:49 AM SayHey: Not sure
JackGonzo: they may be laying it all on the line tomorrow night
personally I can't wait to watch Shields throw at Victorino
10:50 AM SayHey: Double knockout
Dews: ah yea
Dewey: What are the topics today, btw?
10:51 AM JackGonzo: well, it began with their obsession with sonic
now it's onto the LCS
then we'll get into the latest political hackery
Dewey: Sonic is strictly okay, that is all
JackGonzo: and eventually something else
Dewey: nothing special
SayHey: Gonzo has turned his back on us
10:52 AM Dews- so sad
et tu... gonzo...
SayHey: Any mention of Jerry Jones last ditch effort to win?
Im sorry, Roy Williams is not worth a 1,3,and 6
JackGonzo: Roy Williams? I know he's just happy to be out of Detroit
Dews: he traded for potential, but wayyy too much
10:53 AM SayHey: Way to much indeed
Dews: Roy Williams STILL hasn't proven himself totally in this league
SayHey: But Jones does that..........Joey Galloway rings a bell
JackGonzo: Yes, but what were they going to use those draft picks for? Where are their weaknesses?
Roy Williams has
SayHey: Most Longhorns fade away once they get to the NFL
JackGonzo: he made the pro bowl...as a WR...in Detorit
SayHey: Or pull a Cedric Benson
Jeff has left
JackGonzo: being a first round detroit wr pick and still being in the league has proven himself
Jeff has joined
10:54 AM JackGonzo: Excuse me?
Dews: Texas shall be defended now :)
JackGonzo: Phil Dawson, Ricky Williams, Shaun Rogers, Roy Williams, numerous linemen, some secondary players, and of course Vince Young
10:55 AM SayHey: Great college guys
Crappy NFL guys
JackGonzo: I could name Chris Simms, but he should just die
Dews: came close already
JackGonzo: Phil Dawson is one of the greatest kickers of all time
SayHey: He is accurate, but has no leg
Dews: if you're into that kinda thing
SayHey: This is true
JackGonzo: definitely a better kicker the foreign player exemption
10:56 AM no leg? Dude nailed a 56 yarder in the pre-season
SayHey: Jason Elam is having a better year
and he is like 50
Dews: yea, Elam has ice-water in his veins
JackGonzo: You don't rank kickers on distance it's accuracy
SayHey: I think its alittle bit of both
10:57 AM Dews: wait though, we were talking about Roy Williams...
SayHey: Vinitiei is solid, but had 1 FG of 30 yards or better last year
JackGonzo: we were talking about Longhorns
When the Seminole wanted to bring up colleges...
SayHey: Longhorns are an amazing college team, but are complete underachievers once they make the pro's
JackGonzo: Hey Peter Warrick, don't throw stones
10:58 AM Dews: oh hell, I could care less about Longhorns, Seminoles, or Beavers, I'm just talkin Roy Williams worth in draft picks
JackGonzo: For them, yes it's worth it
SayHey: Right on Cedric
Dews: I dunno to be honest
JackGonzo: There was no legit threat opposite TO
(this is now the third topic)
Dews: but to give up that much, then immediately give him a 5 year deal
10:59 AM JackGonzo: It keeps the fans happy
Dews: if I'm Roy Williams, I'm on easy street
happens to some players
JackGonzo: They will always support a Longhorn
SayHey: Jerry Jones wants to make love with Texas
JackGonzo: especially a pro bowler
SayHey: Williams will be ok, but is he worth so much?
Dews: plus, who's gonna throw to him? Pinky McPinkerton, or 60 year old Brad Johnson?
SayHey: Randy Moss was worht a 3rd round pick
Brad Johnson, FSU with a Super Bowl ring
JackGonzo: Isn't the scene from Johnny Be Good where Anthony Michael Hall has sex on the star inspired by Jerry Jones?
11:00 AM Moss was a fourth rounder
Dews: you just lost a CB, so you go trade for a Wideout?
SayHey: Dallas defense is as soft as McCant
JackGonzo: Yes, time to go the St Louis route and try to outscore everyone
Dews: missed that one
Moss was a special case though
you can't do that with a limp-armed QB like Johnson
11:01 AM SayHey: Johnson has a super bowl, punk
What Redskin has one?
Dews: so does Dilfer, doesn't mean he can throw past the 20
JackGonzo: plus now it screws up any other trade...might have done it just to screw the Tony Gonzales trade
Dilfer CAN throw it long, just not accurately
Dews: this is possible
there was the rumor of Tony to Philly afterall
11:02 AM SayHey: That would have made sense
JackGonzo: remember everyone looks to see what other people are doing in the league, and if Roy Williams garners all those picks, then a hall of famer?
SayHey: Shawn Alexander in Washingon....... Thoughts Dews?
Dews: hey, as long as he keeps the ball off the carpet (like Betts enjoys doing), I'm totally cool with that
PhillyFan: And the new punter...seattle, washington welcome to washington
Dews: I don't have high expectations, but he knows the offense
SayHey: Williams would need a ring to match those picks
PhillyFan: He is apparently healthy too
11:03 AM Dews: he could be a great part-time back for us
SayHey: Alexander will steal those 1 yard TD's from Portis
Dews: I doubt it
SayHey: End up with 30 yards, 10 TDs
Dews: if anyone is gonna get those short liners, it'll be our felon
SayHey: It means either Sellars, Rock, Or Betts is out
11:04 AM Dews: Rock isn't gettin many carries either
its obvious they don't trust him
thats why they went out and got Alexander
JackGonzo: Alexander isn't a power back
SayHey: Or Washington IR's Betts
He is the prime KR and PR
El doesthe PR
JackGonzo: hell Alexander isn't much of anything anymore
Dews: no, Sellars is pretty much it
SayHey: Yeh, id have to go with Jack on this one
11:05 AM Dews: well, we really dunno what he is right now, but Betts wasn't really a powerback either
he was just someone to give Portis some downs off
SayHey: Nah, he was east/west
Dews: and liked to fumble
SayHey: Used his speed
JackGonzo: Alexander likes to fumble too
SayHey: That he does
Dews: Portis is proving to be pretty durabe this year, so this is really just the guy thats gonna get another 8-10 carries a game
just to give Portis some downs off
JackGonzo: Lets see what happens when Shaun Rogers does the 747 splash to him this weekend
11:06 AM SayHey: Portis is proving to be a mini Barry Sanders
SayHey: Lots of success with a shitty O line
Dews: you can't be a "mini" sanders
the dude was like 4 feet tall
JackGonzo: That O Line isn't that shitty
Dews: that is actually a great O Line
even with Jansen in there
SayHey: Janson is crap, and another Oline got hurt
Dews: have you been watching any of the games?
11:07 AM No Dews, I watch different games at the house
Dews: you sure?
SayHey: And that dude who dropped the ball? what was his name?
Was another backup
Calm down Dews
Dews: Offensive line's job isn't to run a ball
SayHey: Ok, remind me never to compliment a Redskin
11:08 AM You fucking fans get so aggitated
Dews: haha, ok...
Dews: kinda went 0 to 60 there man :)
SayHey: I dont see how, but whatever you say
JackGonzo: you both suck, live with it
Dews: eh, fair nuff
11:09 AM SayHey: Niners have more wins than Cleveland =)
But I wont go there, yes, Niners suck
Dews: we suck until we win again, as far as I'm concerned
PhillyFan: Do you play giants this week?
SayHey: All or nothing, eh Dews?
Yeh, in NY
Dews: eh, just that was a tough loss
SayHey: Will be a tough game
JackGonzo: You forgot to say, so far
PhillyFan: Ok...beat them please :)
SayHey: Luckily Cleveland beat the shit out of thier CBs
11:10 AM So all we need to do is throw long
PhillyFan: Their spirits are already crushed
PhillyFan: do iiit
JackGonzo: to who?
SayHey: Ross is out, isnt he?
JackGonzo: last time I checked you didn't have a wolverine
We didn't need our Warrior to put 21 on them
SayHey: Oh, ahhhh gotcha
11:11 AM JackGonzo: Bass is from Hawaii right?
SayHey: No, Michigan
Dews: which matchup are we talking about, Eagles Giants, Niners Giants?
JackGonzo: Who the fuck am I thinkin of then...
SayHey: Niners vs Giants
JackGonzo: who knows, let's get on to tonight's predictions so you all can go to lunch and I can go to Sonic
SayHey: And the ass whippin the Browns gave the Giants, to break thier spirits
11:12 AM Dews: that part I got
that was fun to watch
PhillyFan: Yup :)
SayHey: It was.........I had to cock block Dews and have him watch Edwards catch a ball
it wasn't bad
SayHey: May have ruined whatever 3-some chances you could have had
But it was worth it
Dews: I was just as shocked as you were when he caught that ball
11:13 AM PhillyFan: who was the third here?
SayHey: The "friend"
Dews: no no
JackGonzo: two hands don't make a....
PhillyFan: the one joining summer league huh dews?
Dews: not really sure where that came from
this is how ugly rumors start
gettin me in trouble :)
SayHey: Ugly rumor? Nothing ugly about it
11:14 AM LOL.........Of course I am joking
JackGonzo: it is rarely the rumors that get you in trouble, it's the I don't remember portion of the evenings
11:15 AM JackGonzo: but seriously, since I'll probably be all alone due to KB for tonight's debate, predictions?
SayHey: I hope to get home early for that
Dews: I'm going to be making an early night of it Jack, so I may be home as well
JackGonzo: Over Under on McCain snapping, low crawling over to obama to cut his achilles tendon?
SayHey: Obama KO in the 2nd round
Dews: I kinda want to see McCain take a swing
11:16 AM hell, why not at this point?
SayHey: He doesnt take swings, he bites ears off
Dews: if he makes Obama cry, he could still win this thing
SayHey: McCant is bringing up Ayers
Dews: America don't like pussy's afterll
JackGonzo: he wants to eat your children
Dews: well, he has to slug Obama
SayHey: So hopefully Obama can counter punch with Gordon-Liddy
Dews: I'm not talking figuratively
SayHey: Does that make me Canadian?
Dews: I'm talking straight out, walk up to him and sock him
11:17 AM SayHey: Oh, nm
Dews: and if he makes him cry, he wins
JackGonzo: nah, straight up pimp slap
SayHey: I dont know if McCant has the foot movement
Dews: its his only hope I think
SayHey: McCant would need a gun
JackGonzo: yeah have Obama moving all around him like Ali
SayHey: 2 cheap shots in the knee caps
Dews: I dunno, this could expose Obama
11:18 AM JackGonzo: Obama kum bi ya
Dews: who knows if Obama can take a punch?
it hasn't been brought up
SayHey: We know McCant can take punishment......could go all 12 rounds
Dews: I think if McCain walked right up and slapped him silly, and Obama cried, McCain would win
and that may be his only hope
there I said it
Dews: America would eat that shit up
11:19 AM it would be all over the media
SayHey: Is Palin going to be the ring-girl?
Dews: the "talking heads" would say how awful it is, but they'd still be chuckling
JackGonzo: true, but it wouldn't be the same without howard cossell
Dews: good call
SayHey: Well, nothing has been same without cossell
11:20 AM JackGonzo: but that's all the time we have for today, join us tonight for the presidential debates when we find out who wins between the leg drop and the rock bottom
