JackGonzo: Gooooooooooood Morning Vietnam!
Welcome to the first day of the rest of SayHey's life
9:44 AM Dews: Hell ya, Singletary is an interesting pick
9:45 AM SayHey: WooooHoooo
Should get some excellent news shortly regarding his long term contract deal
9:46 AM JackGonzo: Honestly, I don't support firing Nolan, but LOVE Singletary
SayHey: Singletary was long rumored to succeed Nolan
Dews: Mr. SanDiego sends his regards,but he is unfortunately dealing with Verizon on behalf of the "Hostel" at the moment...
SayHey: Anyone but Singletary and I would have been alittle upset
Dews: and I need to step away for 2 mins, but will return
JackGonzo: I take it PetcoParkEast is having communication issues
SayHey: Why is Verizon sucking? (We all know they suck, but whats the issue?)
9:47 AM PhillyFan: he probably means fios
PhillyFan: i like the cell service :)
SayHey: Yeh, Noodle has hated them ever since the hostel got it
PhillyFan: But it seems like the house has always had problems with Fios
JackGonzo: Not surprising
9:48 AM Though MrSD should be careful with his team
SayHey: Im sure it will be the same kind of problem the Phillies will run into tomorrow night
JackGonzo: three out of the four California teams have fired their head coaches this year, the Super Chargers are the only ones left
SayHey: Yep.........Norv Turner will get fired, as will Mike Martz, which will result in the Niners rehiring Norv Turner
9:49 AM At least thats what im hoping for =)
9:50 AM SayHey: Hate Norv all ya want, but he is a magician when it comes to QB's
JackGonzo: wait, you didn't hire mike martz though
Dews: Martz is still there though right?
JackGonzo: oh, you're not talking bout for head coach
SayHey: Yes, I was being hypothetical
JackGonzo: I just woke up
SayHey: Martz isnt going anywhere
JackGonzo: how bout drafting a QB from a school who runs a pro style offense, not the spread?
9:51 AM SayHey: Yeh, You mean like Aaron Rogers? whom we passed on?
JackGonzo: Yeah, the local kid
The Cal Bear
SayHey: Lots of us wanted him
JackGonzo: The one everyone passed on his entire life and is now rocking it in Green Bay, yeah that kid
9:52 AM SayHey: Aaron Rogers has a similar style as Jeff Garcia, and I recall Garcia was money in SF
JackGonzo: Clone didn't, didn't and doesn't trust Cal QBs.
Hell, depending on how the year goes we have what you need...for the right price
Dews: Garcia was great for SF
Anderson or EAS man?
JackGonzo: pretty much
SayHey: We will likely snag a QB via free agency in 2009
9:53 AM "Now Im Done"........with Cleveland
Quinn should have gotten some snaps Sunday night
Dews: I'd be shocked if Anderson finishes the year as the starter in Cleveland
SayHey: Rommy is drinking that polluted Cleveland water
Why else would he NOT have Quinn getting some snaps?
9:54 AM Dews: think there are some incriminating photos
that Anderson must have
SayHey: Yeh, his needle dick or his dead arm?
JackGonzo: Arm is definitely NOT dead
dude still has a rocket
9:55 AM SayHey: True, so it must be the other
Then again, it would be helpful for Anderson if his team didnt have life threatening illnesses every year
Or stone hands
JackGonzo: they're preaching trust and loyalty and so in their minds they've hitched their buggy to Anderson, it wouldn't show loyalty to switch horses
9:56 AM then again, if the Jaguars could just solve the problem for us...
SayHey: True, but the loyalty card isnt going to save Rommys job
JackGonzo: Romeo is gone after this year period
Dews: how long has Rommy had that job?
SayHey: 4th year
Dews: ahh k
SayHey: Hired the same year as Nolan
JackGonzo: Savage is staying, but short of winning a Super Bowl there's no way Romeo keeps his job
9:57 AM SayHey: If thats any indication
JackGonzo: It's time to bring the stache back to the AFC North
SayHey: 2009 prediction.........The "chin" takes over in Clevleand
So im assuming that topic 1 is the head coach scenarios in the NFL
JackGonzo: It appears to be
9:58 AM Dews: Kneel before ZORN
JackGonzo: Now then, topic number 2...EliteXC is apparently folding up their tent and calling it quits
SayHey: I predict Andy Reid getting fired
End of the season
Yeh, I read about that this morning
JackGonzo: He won't get fired as much as "resign"
SayHey: And Kimbo is still under investigation
Or, his fight is
9:59 AM Dews: yea, they'll give him the class way outtatown
JackGonzo: Most of Elite was a bunch of has beens anyways, but there are definitely some interesting fighters who may make the jump to the big time, and for back to the big time
PhillyFan: Andy Reid won't get fired
SayHey: Im waiting for Reid to pull a "Mora". Because you know the anger is just lingering inside that huge belly
The Shamrocks were pretty much it in Elite
10:00 AM Outside of Kimbo, who is finished
PhillyFan: Banner loves him...rumors lie
JackGonzo: The title holders should all get a shot in the UFC
SayHey: Banner Smash!!
Give them 1 fight to prove there medal
JackGonzo: Lawler, Shields, Noons and MAYBE even Silva
10:01 AM SayHey: Silva wants to retire
JackGonzo: Nick Diaz should come back
10:03 AM Now the interesting part will be whether Dana White brings in Gina, which in the past said he has zero interest in promoting women's fights
SayHey: Gina is pure money
JackGonzo: but Gina now has the most watched MMA fight in American history
SayHey: Dana White (who i kinda cant stand) would be insane not to promote her
JackGonzo: and her next fight was to be against Cyborg, the villain of Million Dollar Baby
SayHey: Cyborg is a beast
JackGonzo: I can understand his reasoning
10:04 AM He doesn't have a CBS deal, he's on Spike
So for CBS it's easy to promote Gina
SayHey: I just dont buy any of Dana Whites crap, after the way he treated Randy Catour (sp)
JackGonzo: Now you put her on PPV, will people PAY to see her fight?
SayHey: Oh, hands down
I would pay
10:05 AM JackGonzo: Yes, well there were faults on that on both sides
Emi wanted WAY more money then UFC was going to pay
SayHey: I agree, but even George S didnt publically bash Roger Clemens. Thats how I see it
JackGonzo: Besides it's not gonna matter here in a few months after Coture is killed by the Next Big Thing Brock Lesnar
SayHey: Clemens holding out for more money, that is
10:06 AM Fuckin A.........Brock is going to manhandle him
JackGonzo: Yes, but Dana has to, it brings attention to a sport that John McCain has called "human cockfighting"
QuadX L gloves, that's what Brock uses
SayHey: Oh, and Boxing isnt human cockfighting?
10:07 AM JackGonzo: That's like Andre the Giant sized hands
Well, there's no kicking...
SayHey: Only weakness Brock has are his chicken legs
True, but there is biting
JackGonzo: and you know as a POW he saw some cockfighting...
SayHey: Wait, wasnt McCant the cock? Or is that anti-american of me to say?
JackGonzo: Brock doesn
10:08 AM doesn't have chicken legs, those things are massive
what happened was that was his second professional fight
SayHey: Well, chicken calves......sorry, should have specified
JackGonzo: the ref illegally broke up Brock from murdering Mir, and then just made a rookie mistake
SayHey: Not knocking Brock, dude is a man-beast
10:09 AM Phillies suck!
10:10 AM Nothing?? Is PhillyFan alive?
JackGonzo: Saving her tears for next week
Dews: say Crack
SayHey: How about tomorrow night?
JackGonzo: Though it would be interesting to do a UFC 91 live blog
SayHey: Even tho I think the Phills will win game 1
PhillyFan: Where are the giants eric?
10:11 AM SayHey: Im down for that
PhillyFan: ...that's what I thought.
JackGonzo: Saturday Nov 15
SayHey: Giants are where we all expected them to be
PhillyFan: phillies are inthe world series, they don't suck.
SayHey: No surprise
LOL just checking for fog on the glasss, PhillyFan
10:12 AM JackGonzo: Topic Three....throw one out there
10:13 AM Dews: Pats death was exaggerated
SayHey: Oh, as it should have been
They may be a bit more human, now that they have 3 injured RBs
JackGonzo: Pats just that good? Or do the Broncos suck that badly?
SayHey: Broncos dont suck that badly
Dews: Pats are still good
10:14 AM JackGonzo: I for one am leaning towards the Broncos sucking
I have not been impressed with them at all this season
their defense may be the worse in the league save for Champ Bailey
Dews: I think they are just finally making changes to suit Cassel's ability
SayHey: Hard to say, since the Bronco's RB corp are all hurt
And Cutler got hurt on the opening drive
Champ is goign to miss some time
I agree Dews
10:15 AM Dews: they needed to make those changes before and stop believing they had another Brady in the wings
SayHey: The line still wont protect him, but Cassel made some good plays
JackGonzo: I'm just not impressed with anyone in the AFC West right now
is that the worst division or is it the NFC North?
SayHey: AFC West is just as bad as the NFC West
NFC North bad?
When did that happen?
10:16 AM JackGonzo: Any division who has the Lions...
Dews: ah yea
JackGonzo: The Vikings passing game...
Dews: In Gus we trust... sometimes
10:17 AM SayHey: NFC West is pretty God awful right now
JackGonzo: The Cardinals aren't, they're putting it together
SayHey: I dont buy them yet
PhillyFan: Sorry I am very distracted today
JackGonzo: I know it's tough for us to buy them, they are the cardinals
SayHey: Rams, Hawks, and Niners have a combined 5 wins
Dews: Cardinals are one of those dangerous teams though
JackGonzo: as you should be, you're coming to my neighborhood in less then a year to visit
Dews: they can beat anyone
10:18 AM SayHey: Rams could become dangerous soon also
Dews: but also lose to anyone
I'm starting to believe in the Rams
JackGonzo: Right now no team is hotter then the Rams
Dews: I don't believe that Dallas is THAT bad
SayHey: To soon
JackGonzo: So much for the mighty mighty NFC East
Dews: oh no, we are still the mighty NFC East
SayHey: I knew Dallas was that bad........So much bullshit attitudes
Dews: they just aren't THAT good
JackGonzo: How long until the Giants and Eagles fall to the Rams?
SayHey: To much talent, not enough discipine
10:19 AM Dews: those Pats comparisons were bogus
JackGonzo: Raise your hand if you'd laugh your ass off if the only wins the Rams got this year were against the "best division in the NFL"?
SayHey: Im starting to believe Jarod Mayo is the Defensive ROY also
JackGonzo: after a game?
SayHey: LOL id laugh
10:20 AM Mayo has been very solid
JackGonzo: Solid, but has he been Top Ten pick solid?
10:21 AM PhillyFan: hey we already beat the rams
Dews: not THE Rams
the old Rams
but he didn't say THE rams
JackGonzo: this is true
PhillyFan: he didn't specify
JackGonzo: but you didn't play the Hasslet Rams
10:22 AM SayHey: Hasslet is a pretty decent coach
PhillyFan: Best move they could have made
SayHey: Any update on Westbrooks ribs?
10:23 AM JackGonzo: He still has more then the normal number?
SayHey: Im looking at whether or not they are still broken
Seeing how the Reskins beat him mercifully
10:24 AM PhillyFan: I think he may play... he needed the bye though
Dews: who, weezy?
JackGonzo: Well Topic Number 4, as per usual we go to politics and whatever random tidbits anyone has
10:25 AM SayHey: Palin broke away from the McCant platform
Palin and her smartness, decided to openly support an ammendment ban on gay marriage, where as McCant rejected that
JackGonzo: Yes, but is wasn't a shocker that she's for an amendment
10:26 AM SayHey: True, but I thought McCant put a muzzle on her
She deviated rrom the script!
Dews: Biden kinda screwed up with his comments about foreign leaders though
SayHey: I dont think Biden screwed up
10:27 AM JackGonzo: Though I did find video of McCain debating in the sixties
there ya go
10:28 AM To funny
10:29 AM JackGonzo: BWAH!
No mud slinging!
10:30 AM Though William The Bloody Kristol is attempting to claim that 9-11 did not cause the xenophobia we are now seeing in this country
SayHey: I wonder what he thinks did
10:31 AM Dews: <-- now dealing with Verizon in a tag team effort with Mr. SD
SayHey: What is the problem?
There "award winning" service?
JackGonzo: HOT TAG! HOT TAG!
Dews: one enormous clusterF*&(
10:33 AM JackGonzo: wow, interesting news bit
Anne Pressley, a TV news reporter who also played Anne Coulter in Oliver Stone's W., was attacked in her home over the weekend -- beaten and stabbed several times -- and is suffering injuries that police say are "life-threatening". There are no suspects right now, however seeing as her purse was missing, police suggest a robbery.
SayHey: I had a feeling someone would get hurt due to that movie
10:34 AM JackGonzo: I don't know bout that
SayHey: I thought someone was going to bomb the Uptown when i was watching it
Dews: yea, read about that on the commute in today
JackGonzo: Now if it was someone who was portraying Malkin, then maybe
Dews: was found in bed with head wounds and beaten around the face
JackGonzo: Also interesting is that Daniel Craig turned down playing Thor
SayHey: Yeh, i read that also
10:35 AM JackGonzo: I still look forward to our second favorite roman playing thor
sinice our favorite is shooting up screens december
10:37 AM SayHey: Lucious Verinas!!
10:38 AM Dews: he'd be a great Thor I think
SayHey: Yep........Cannot wait for Punisher War Zone
Oh, and a side note- I totally forgot he was in Trainspotting
JackGonzo: We're gonna end today with a funny tidbit about this voter fraud bullshit from New Mexico
SayHey: Just thought id throw that out there
JackGonzo: Most people don't remember who all was in Trainspotting cept for Obi-Wan
10:39 AM Dews: no, and the amazing baby that can walk on the ceiling
JackGonzo: There is no one named Duran Duran....oh wait a minute...
SayHey: LOL, boy in the bubble moron
10:40 AM Oh, and our favorite Power Ranger is heading to death row
Murderous Child Acotr
PhillyFan: what color was he?
SayHey: pffft i dunno, he was the nerdy one
JackGonzo: The pink one that looked like Hilary Swank? Or the White Ranger who had the flute sword?
Dews: oh she was cute
SayHey: She was cute
PhillyFan: Deleon, 29, is a former child actor who allegedly boasted that he was a star on the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" but apparently had only a small part in one episode
10:41 AM haha
Dews: haha, thats great
SayHey: haha and no he is going to die
JackGonzo: see, that's karma biting you in the ass about bragging about that shit
PhillyFan: That was Amy Jo Johnson
Dews: ahh yea
PhillyFan: later in other shows
Dews: there we go
SayHey: Oh I remember.....pfffft
10:42 AM JackGonzo: ok, we're done here, go and do what you do in DC, I'm gonna drink more coffee and play some NCAA 09. And remember, Love That Joker
