Absolutely exquisite, boatbuilder. Bravissimo.

Dare we hope to see Andrew Cuomo frogmarched in handcuffs?

Boatbuilder,

You are my hero!

So boatbuilder is really Bob Kraft. Good luck getting that ring back...

STeyer gearing up for his Senate run ... too bad we can't talk one of our Cali contingent into running ... Senator Iggy or Senator DrJ has a nice ring to it.

would have helped had I read the whole thing ... he clears his throat with his 3 e's then says he is not running ...

DrJ

rich, no f**king way I'd ever consider going into elected politics. When I was in Arizona a business colleague wanted me to run, and would have raised money for me, and I turned him down flat.

rich@gmu

lol ... sorry DrJ.

i need booze and loud music ...

This Birdman trailer is the creation of my nephew--the F-18'pilot with West Nile disease. He was in NYC to receive an award for it when he was stricken.

Went to college with one of Goodell's brothers and practiced law with the wife of yet another.

That is a family that looks alike.

Mine looks like the Loreal hair commercial. Blonde, brunett, and Red.

Took me the longest time on JOM to realize bro # 3 was the nfl commish you all keep complaining about.

Captain Hate

DoT, how's your nephew's progress going?

If I was charitable I would say he meant land grant colleges, but not this day.

Captain Hate

DoT, I'm confused, did your nephew create the trailer or also have input into the movie?

I'm going to listen to music for a while so bbl.

rich@gmu

wow DoT looks good. hope your nephew is recovering.

Jim Gray says the nfl needs to hire ball watchers.

On O'Reilly he blamed the officials for not figuring it out sooner. It would be akin to blaming the priest when a vagrant steals the wine.

the league doesn't care--the rule is simply a guideline, 

The Patriots cared.

Why hasn't the NFL issued any findings yet? 

They haven't yet crafted a BS story that will hold up to scrutiny. Obama's team does it all the time.

"Ongoing investigation" = cover-up.

from Steph's link - "As the audience gradually realised that a taboo was being broken in front of their eyes, whispers and occasional giggles rippled down the front row like a Mexican wave."

Good Lord.

rich@gmu

yeah this thread needs some music ...

matt

What is a Mexican wave? A wave of illegals? 4' faces? A wave containing flotsam and jetsam?

Didn't they have a movie called Flubber a while back? That would explain a lot. Tom Brady is Son of Flubber.

Danube on iPad

He did the trailer. They give him the script and an early run of the movie, and his job is to excerpt two minutes of it that will give you some idea of what it's about, and make you want to see it. He is awfully good at it. Smart, funny and movie-star handsome.

He goes home tomorrow, but with 24-hour care and long-term therapy. Progress is painfully slow but they are hopeful.

Janet - healthy and jolly as a joker!

...like a Mexican wave.

What's a Mexican wave?

OT and FWIW, the Idaho JoM contingent met up this evening; I got to chat with lyle and Publius. Very enjoyable, but I had to leave after less than an hour due to family commitments. I'm looking forward to the next one, though, when I'll have more time.

We now return you, etc.

Hello, all! I have been at the Thursday night auction spending a lot of money on what I hope was a good investment, mostly Portmeiron Botanical Garden serving pieces, art glass, and German crystal, plus 2 Japanese cloisonne bowls.

daddy, Sorry I missed you coming into town today. Maybe next time we can get together.
I owe you a better present for that scotch you brought me.

boatbuilder, I am not a Colts fan. My sole interest in the team is that they are successful enough to keep the downtown clanging their cash registers. The Colts notified the NFL about low-pressure balls after a November game with the Patriots and suggested they might want to keep an eye on it.

I don't think that it would have made much difference in the outcome of the game, other than the score might have been closer. So if the point spread was a big deal, someone might want to see if some guys from Vegas were involved.

And finally, the president of Yemen has resigned so they are in chaos, and the King of Sauda Arabia has died, so the new guy will have a lot on his plate. What could go wrong?

Oh, and Captain Hate, sounded on the radio like your Terrapins and IU were having a pretty close basketball game. 38-35 Indiana at the half, when I pulled in the driveway.

Great trailer, Danube,

prayers for your nephews recovery,

That Colts guy who said he thought the ball was soft when he intercepted it so he took it to the refs seems to contradict his teammates who say they first thought about and allegedly complained in November (when they also got their asses whipped, by the way) and the others who say they were tipped off by the Ravens.

The Hoosiers shot lights out in the second half and administered a whupping. They were the better team tonight. Hopefully Turgeon will have them better prepared at Comcast.

I guess shoe sizes aren't the only 'predictor' anymore - now you can just check the hem length. ;)

no one took credit for that remark, because the requisite mackerel to slap that person into coherence, would have been the size of an eighteen wheeler,

Jim Gray is painfully stupid; perfect match for BOR. Marv Albert used to skewer him during NBA games.

Concur with Eric. Great minds think alike, which makes for good conversation. Looking forward to next meet-up.

BTW: Went to #20 on the top 50 prep school list while in middle school. Actually I went there once a year to play them in football. They were always an easy W on our schedule.

"'Ongoing investigation' = cover-up."

Of course it does--there is no such thing as an actual ongoing investigation.

Can anyone prove that Loretta Fuddy was not on the Patriots' sideline?

boatbuilder

I'm back. CH, can I just use Aikman's statements as my final argument? "The league didn't use to allow QB's to mess with the ball, but since 2006 that's what they do, so Belichek must die." "The buck stops with the head coach, but Sean Payton didn't do anything to gain a competitive advantage, it's not his fault that HIS COACHES PAID PLAYERS TO INJURE THE OTHER TEAM." Really?

Publius of Idaho

Eric and lyle,

Thanks for the page over, and page down, tips. It makes the site much easier to navigate.

And the NY Post is the best, as usual, Steph.

Dude on FOX is babbbbbling about the 'INTEGRITY' of the game, VIS a VIS the NFL.

pfffffffffffffffffffffft. FOLLOW THE CASH.

Here's an Instagram pic of the March For Life today...it really is a huge gathering. I had no idea until I went one year (I think I've been the last 3 yrs). It is mostly teens & young adults too.

http://instagram.com/p/yKw5RZBIOo/?modal=true

There were huge groups on Penn Ave., down Constitution, and then on the Mall too...so it is hard to get an idea of just how many people come.

The NFL is beclowning itself. GOODELL is a CLOWN. None of that matter$. I just read Clay Matthews of the PACKERS was fined TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS for a hit on Russell Wilson on Sunday. FUCKING NONSENSE.
Wilson started to slide after Matthews had committed himself. Matthews didn't drill Wilson at all. The NFL is becoming a joke. And they are doing it to themselves. The amount of money is insignificant. The ISSUE is the righteousness, of the rules or lack thereof. It's become cover the NFL'S ass 24/7. The wimpification of America.

Ha!! Publius, it sucks when an American INSTITUTIONAL ICON of EPIC PROPORTIONS, starts to emasculate itself as it bathes in BILLLLLLLLLLLLLIONS.

Jumping the Shark as we witness it.

Publius of Idaho

Now Gus, we were talking about the NFL. You are describing the government. I'm confused. :)

GUS

Janet! God Bless You. My Body My Choice???? WOW. What about the CHILDS' BODY. What about the CHILDS CHOICE??

Publius of Idaho

Gus, I'm confused? We were talking about the NFL. You are describing the government.:)

Publius of Idaho

Now I'm really confused!

GUS

Exactly Publius. The NFL has gone into the CRONY CAPITALISM racket. The ANTI-TRUST exemption that MLB and the NFL have been granted...makes both...prime targets of Government blackmail and control. The NFL in particular has been hammmmmered with a CONCUSSION class action suit, and it is willing to PAY out MILLLLLLLLLLLLLIONS to make it go away. Goodell does what the "OWNERS" tell him to do. It's almost like negotiating within a STATE for INDIAN GAMING RIGHTS. The NFL is free to make BILLLLLLLLLLLLLIONS, just so long as whomever the GOVT wants to get GREASED......GETS GREASED.

GUS

BTW Publius. Very very ASTUTE. Yes we were discussing the NFL and it seemed that we were discussing GUBMINT. Yes and YES.

Publius of Idaho

Gus, remember the James Caan movie 'Rollerball'?

We are living it!

GUS

Exactly Publius. We are living Planet of the Apes, Rollerball, and MAD MAX.
Half of us PLUS, have CEASED to THINK.

Publius of Idaho

And the other half have gone to bed.
I think I'll join them.

Enjoyed the chat, Gus.
