On this cold, windy morning, we have gathered together to discuss…
- Thoughts on this weekend's football action
- Reaction to the World Series
- A few closing thoughts as this election cycle comes to a close
- Thoughts about how Philly may burn to the ground tonight
JackGonzo: Good morning, hopefully we have a group of winners with us this morning, not a bunch of people out for themselves
SayHey: I would like to thank VA Tech QB's for at least showing up Saturday
JackGonzo: and I would like to thank SayHey for the GREATEST post-game conference since OK State's coach last year
9:33 AM Mike Freaking Singletary
Dews: haha, good quote
Want to remind everyone who picked Duke over Vandy too...
SayHey: Man, he put the fear of God in me
Yeh, but you had Purdue over Minnesota also
MrSanDiego: I may just go back into my cave and come out after Spring Training
JackGonzo: Already my favorite head coach in the NFL, you know the kind of coach Herm Edwards used to be
Just when LT decided to show up?
9:34 AM Dews: my apologies, Chat is having issues today
SayHey: Yeh, he will be awesome once York gives him a Mike Singletary team
JackGonzo: Wait, who had the Browns over the Jaguars? Or Georgia crippling the Tigers?
Dews: <-- College football genius here again though
SayHey: I had GA =)
But also the Jags
For the most part, my picks were pretty good
Dews: I had Duke!
SayHey: And Perdue
9:35 AM it was a good game
JackGonzo: we all did fairly well, though I don't know who picked wisconsin, but hats off
SayHey: Always thinking with your Johnson.......
JackGonzo: he made the purdue choice out of...consideration
Dews: not true, Duke was outta spite
JackGonzo: you know, like how you would be forced to pick Indiana
SayHey: Hey, IU has some talent
JackGonzo: as you notice, I do not have that issue of picking Penn State over Ohio St
SayHey: And they showed NW what that is......Trickery!!
9:36 AM JackGonzo: Their talent plays for the Redskins
Dews: hell yes, and very well
SayHey: We all knew the Skins would win.......but why so close?
I had the Skins in an epic blowout
MrSanDiego: you guys and your sig otros' college football teams...
9:37 AM JackGonzo: Cause the Lions are the team of almost this year
Dews: I cannot describe to you the amount of rage I felt watching the eary part of that game...
SayHey: FSU 2.......VA Tech QB's 0
JackGonzo: they've rarely been blown out
SayHey: I didnt know Glennon was so limber
MrSanDiego: PSU was a good game
Love to hate on Ohio St
SayHey: I missed that one.........To busy drinking my weight in free booze
JackGonzo: but hopefully the lions will live the unbelievable dream
Dews: yea, enjoyed watching that at the all you can drink for free night
9:38 AM see, I miss things while working
though did listen to the Ohio St game and chuckled
MrSanDiego: where the f was I? Free booze...
SayHey: Tom Toms
Where drama always seems to follow
JackGonzo: ah, yes, they would need free booze to get me to go to tom toms again
Dews: SanDiego, I think you were on some mystical journey
9:39 AM SayHey: Yep, and I bit on their bait
JackGonzo: but it was probably some half ass light beer so not worth my while anyways
MrSanDiego: something like that I'm sure
And the good beer
AND good beer?
JackGonzo: this was no WAKA event
Dews: oh no
SayHey: Nope.........All DCK
9:40 AM DCK is Socialist that wayt
JackGonzo: so any final thoughts on college football or the NFL?
SayHey: Putting booze in our pockets
Yeh, FSU #15!
VA Tech has no more QBs
9:41 AM JackGonzo: I would ask who have they beaten, but they play in the ACC so the answer would be nobody
SayHey: Ha Ha
JackGonzo: so good that I live in Houston now
I can say that without being lynched
SayHey: Texas showed us that Texas Tech isnt the fluke we all thought they were
Very close game
9:42 AM JackGonzo: Anyone shocked by Texas Tech's manhandling of Kansas?
Dews: not really
SayHey: Oh wait, got my games mixed up
JackGonzo: and I believe Eric means OK State
SayHey: Sorry, bra'
JackGonzo: Tech I believe is this weekend
JackGonzo: no worries, we're no Jayhawk
9:43 AM SayHey: I am kinda shocked by Wake's loss to Miami
JackGonzo: The Patriots, still tied for first...is their schedule really this easy?
SayHey: I cannot explain NE right now.........THey find ways to win
Dews: yea, its still Bellicheck
best coach ever
9:44 AM gotta hand it to homeless man, he knows his shit
JackGonzo: actually, looking at their schedule, yes, it really has been that easy
Dews: I mean, besides Jim Zorn of course...
JackGonzo: but now, look for the Colts to let out some frustration against the Patriots sunday
9:45 AM Dews: I'm more interested in seeing if Peyton survives tonight against the Titans
there could be some vicious hits
but the next five games for the Pats, they should lose, if not 8 of the last 9
Heard an interesting stat last night coming home
9:46 AM Yesterday was Kurt Warner's 100th game, and 44th throwing over 300 yards, how damn impressive is THAT stat
SayHey: That is pretty good
Especially when we all counted him out 5 years ago
9:47 AM Dews: he's been a great QB for a long time
well, Very Good
SayHey: Dude is money when he has an Oline
2 time MVP
Id say he was great
JackGonzo: but was it long enough to get him into the HoF?
Dews: Gotta hand it to Bag Boy, he's good
SayHey: Good question...........Id say yes, but it might take a few years
9:48 AM He may have an Art Monk, type of wait
Dews: Art Monk should NOT have had to wait that long
JackGonzo: but Monk's biggest hit was he was never the best in the league, for a few years warner clearly was
9:49 AM SayHey: True.......He has the hardware also
9:50 AM JackGonzo: Now then, since PhillyFan must still be out of it, lets talk about Oakland Athletic Joe Blanton
if we knew this guy had this kind of power, he could have pitched hit for us
SayHey: He was solid
9:51 AM JackGonzo: Pinched
9:52 AM can anyone remember another team's top four of the order just being shut down like this?
Dews: not really, outside of the Yanks?
PhillyFan: 13 days of rest helped him too
JackGonzo: short of the phillies squandering every run chance, this would be a complete destruction of the Rays if not for their pitching
9:53 AM SayHey: Ironic that the Rays are struggling with the least talented pitching staff in this post season
Maybe they are over-confident?
Dews: think its still just a young team
PhillyFan: I think we have showed we are talented
Dews: hell, the oldest member of their rotation is 26
SayHey: Well, Ryan Howard proved to me he is still worthless
9:54 AM JackGonzo: I don't know if they're the least talented, I'd say they have the best pitcher in the post season
Dews: this is true
JackGonzo: and then they have veterans who aren't going to crumble under pressure
PhillyFan: who is pitching toniiiight!
JackGonzo: is tonight the end of the WS?
SayHey: Uhm, Hamels?
Nah, tomorrow night
PhillyFan: Undefeated in the postseason
9:55 AM haha... tonight!
JackGonzo: Is Hamels the MVP right now of the WS?
SayHey: Is it?
Wow, there go the ratings
JackGonzo: it is tonight
SayHey: Nah, Id give the MVP to Utley
JackGonzo: unless hamels pitches his ASS off tonight
PhillyFan: If Hamels does well...I would think its going to him
JackGonzo: then I'd give it to him
9:56 AM SayHey: I dont think the Phills have a reason to pitch Hamels.......Why blow out his arm if they are up 3-1?
JackGonzo: though I would highly suggest having buckets of water and hoses ready cause the fire that burns philly to the ground tonight could be extensive
they want to win it in philly, and who are you gonna send out there?
has to be
SayHey: I guess
9:57 AM PhillyFan: Yup
JackGonzo: this isn't dusty baker, hamels arm isn't gonna fall off
PhillyFan: They don't want to lose...why wouldn't they send the best pitcher?
JackGonzo: Kazmir is going tonight ass well
Dews: its ok to run a young guy out there with less rest every now and then, just not for the ENTIRE season, ala Dusty freakin Baker
SayHey: Im just saying, Jesus............Remember, Dusty was our coach, im haunted
9:58 AM JackGonzo: How do the Mets feel?
9:59 AM if they don't choke like a porn star with dirk diggler they could have prevented all of this
Dews: Rachel Nicols anyone?
JackGonzo: thanks for nothing new york, as usual you were fuckin useless
SayHey: Yep.........Billy Wagner just HAD to talk shit to Philly
10:00 AM brb
10:01 AM Dews: Shootings in Central Arkansas
Dews: seems to be "the thing to do" this year
10:03 AM JackGonzo: lookin for it, laughing at folks not knowing that the zogby poll is run by republicans
Dews: ah yea, Colorado and VA both listed officially as "Leaning Obama" though today
VA I was aware of, but Colorado is a lil surprising
10:04 AM JackGonzo: Obama is spending the last days in colorado
I'm confused at this Arkansas shooting
two dead, one wounded...and FOUR suspects are being searched for
10:05 AM are these the worst fuckin shots or something? Are these cops?
Dews: ha, yea really
JackGonzo: gotta love those police shootouts, like the one outside the strip club that killed the gentlemen on his wedding day
10:06 AM where the cops unloaded like two full clips each and hit nothing remotely around the guy
Dews: they call that "Resisting Arrest" in PG County
JackGonzo: they call a lot of things resisting arrest in PG County
the one thing they don't do is call local cops when invading on a mayors home
10:07 AM Dews: oh yea really
JackGonzo: with just over a week left, any thoughts as we finally wrap up the election season?
Dews: its looking like a landslide in the making
10:08 AM with the GOP running ads that hint at the Democrats having a rubber stamp in congress (essentially saying Obama will win and all) in tough races, its gotten bad
its almost begging at this point
JackGonzo: pretty much
10:09 AM though I wonder how much of it is, give them some rope and let them hang themselves!
what we have to make sure of is NOT to hang ourselves with the power
Dews: yea, I'm not confident that the Dems will know what to do with power anyway
neither party does well with it
10:11 AM JackGonzo: well, hopefully the new batch of blood in the democratic party ( and not being run by a bunch of ass hats) will prevent that
Dews: well, I do see Dodd taking the leadership role
JackGonzo: Obama spoke to a crowd of 100,000 in denver
Dews: so maybe that will get them to be a lil more aggressive
JackGonzo: the rockies couldn't get those numbers during the WS
10:12 AM SayHey: Did i miss the "McCain, predicting his own win"?
Jimmie has left
SayHey: err, guaranteeing a win?
JackGonzo: not yet
10:13 AM SayHey: oh good
JackGonzo: have at it
10:14 AM SayHey: Seeing how it never works in sports, McCant is going to proving that "calling your shot" will work next week
JackGonzo: will this be the best call of all time? If not him, who would be better?
10:15 AM and good I mean the most wrong call ever
cause the best still has to be Joe Namath
SayHey: Well, its the only time it REALLY worked
10:16 AM And if he loses, McCant loses all of his credibility
Not that he isnt already
I do love how Palin is now the "rogue" of the ticket
10:17 AM JackGonzo: Maverick and Rogue
SayHey: Sounds like a bad sitcom
JackGonzo: soon to be join by Beat, Colossus, Aqua Man and Black Lightning and the rest of the Super Friends
10:18 AM SayHey: Well, once you add the Decider to the team
JackGonzo: who could forget Teh Decider and Turb Blossom
10:20 AM Well we've seemed to have run the gauntlet of topics today
10:21 AM we're gonna call this one and join everyone, likely tomorrow (though it may be delayed to weds) when we expect the Phillies to be world champions, bringing home the first championship trophy that's not from arena football, in a very long time, probably since the Phillies won in 1980
10:22 AM Dews: which, may be a sign of end of days...
PhillyFan: HELL YEA!!!
I will be going to philly so I might miss it
Dews: PhillyFan will be lighting the first spark for the fire that destroys philly after
JackGonzo: we may just meet back on weds then
10:23 AM haha
JackGonzo: except the four block radius around Genos and Pats
Dews: screw Genos
burn it down
PhillyFan: I <3 philly. drunken parading is in order....hopefully!!!
Dews: those suck anyway
PhillyFan: pats is good
Dews: I need to try Pats next time
SayHey: Me to
JackGonzo: I saidd both since they're right next to each other
SayHey: GInos is good, but wow, very racist
10:24 AM JackGonzo: just like philly
Dews: yea, not giving them any more of my money
PhillyFan: Haha... they are very patriotic
very supportive of the troops
Dews: that part is fine
SayHey: And haters of immigrants
Dews: I'm all about that
yea, not that part
JackGonzo: racist against fat, white haired, rosey red cheeked people in red outfits
SayHey: No wonder McCant loves that joint
10:25 AM Dews: hahaha
PhillyFan: But Pats is good
Dews: good call Jack
JackGonzo: I did my part!
Dews: Santa is a communist afterall
SayHey: How can we forget
PhillyFan: santa speaks english
they would feed him
and make him fatter
JackGonzo: many folks are multi-lingual
SayHey: This is true....but you still booed him
PhillyFan: so not a good call
10:26 AM Dews: its just funny that a place called "Geno's" would be against immigrants
JackGonzo: yeah, he's a "socialist"
Dews: speaking as a paisan myself, I can say that they are def NOT Native americans
PhillyFan: They are against people who don't bother to learn english
JackGonzo: not the first time italians were against other immigrants
Dews: Irish don't count
I'm against people that can't grow potatostoo
10:27 AM SayHey: puerto ricans
JackGonzo: Italians are just famous for being so....welcoming...of other cultures
Dews: well sure, we had a hand in basically building them
10:28 AM you all are welome for Western Civilization and all
JackGonzo: except when you were invaded bby africa
PhillyFan: You guys are missing the point
SayHey: Oh, snap!
Dews: was the damn Christians that made it all rot from the inside...
JackGonzo: or do we need to play true romance?
SayHey: Point is..........Gino's hates
Even hates Santa
JackGonzo: of course, he's a socialist
SayHey: Was just about to go there, Jack
10:29 AM JackGonzo: but you people go to your two hour lunches that government employees are famous for
SayHey: But Dews, you just need to watch Dennis Hoppers speach, that will sum it all up
JackGonzo: but since you're all contractors
enjoy lunch at your desk
Dews: I do need to see it
10:30 AM <-- not contractor
SayHey: <---- is
Dews: <-- can leave soon if he wanted :)
JackGonzo: and I believe this is the point where we say, we are out
