    So I made some eggs this morning and was looking for something to put in them when I came across this bottle of hot sauce my mom gave me as a stocking stuffer. Hadn't tried it out yet and I figured my mom loves me and wouldn't want to try to kill me so I opened it up, threw a few dashes in there, scrambled them up and...I'm just now peeling myself off the ceiling. I'm not going to post the photo that Rage Against the Machine used on their first album cover as it's pretty gruesome but you guys probably know what I'm talking about. It's like that, on my tongue. What in the absolute ****. So I look it up. Guess how many scoville units? If you ever see this in the store, ****ing run away:

    Watching the NFL playoffs

    I don't really get the hate for the Patriots. They're in the AFC, aka the conference I don't really care about. If this was Dallas being this good for this long, I'd probably feel differently, but probably partially out of jealousy that the Redskins can't be that good. I'm sure the Dolphins fans are sick of them. I get people that are tired of them, that's fine. But to see a team sustain excellence for the number of years they have in a league where the deck is stacked against you in order to be that good for that long, it's amazing. I like seeing teams dominate, I like seeing sustained excellence, I like being able to say I saw someone like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods or Tom Brady take on all comers for years and years. I'm not rooting for them (go McVay!) but if they win I won't hate it.

    Championship Sunday hasn't been a disappointment.
  4. Yeah, the kids mocking the Native American guy with the tomahawk chop that they do at the Atlanta Braves games. Hooting and hollering, it's obvious when people are being snide and jerks. That kid who stood there and stared, it wasn't a warm, inviting look. Nice statement from the kid, though, I am sure people who will see what they want to see from that video will think he's an upstanding young citizen who'd never be a jerk. That said, I'm not sure what Phillips hoped to accomplish by approaching that group of kids. I wouldn't call him an aggressor as he didn't do anything threatening but I'm not sure what he was thinking.

    Watching the NFL playoffs

    It's a treat to watch teams with real offenses play after watching the drek that is the Redskins. At the same time, it's sad because we aren't anywhere close to being able to do anything like these teams can. It's like the Redskins are playing a completely different sport, almost. Probably not if he doesn't grasp things like understanding why there are so many opposing teams fans in Fed Ex...

    Yep. I'd go on a giant tirade. I suspect he will, too.

    Hope the Rams win the Super Bowl. Still pissed that we let McVay go.

    Saints got absolutely screwed if they don't pull this out. I don't have a dog in this fight as I like both these teams but I'd really like to see Brees get another shot at a Super Bowl. How that play wasn't pass interference was insane.
  11. Me, personally, I'd love to see NFL coaches wearing suits again: I'd post a photo of Tom Landry, but **** that guy. Baseball high pants, high socks: Anything you want, jersey/uniform preferences to styles of play, rules, etc.

    Killer Mike, trying to live black by only supporting black owned businesses, etc, is interesting. But him going to a black owned strip club with black strippers and turning down a lapdance from an Asian stripper cause she wasn't black is one of the funniest ****ing things I've ever seen.
  13. I agree, regarding the unabashed violence. And yeah, they take a lot of injuries and keep moving (the fight in the weightroom was ridiculous) but I reminded myself it's supposed to be over the top and to suspend some belief. Even though I thought that, the last episode where Punisher gets decked in the face by a big piece of iron and kept going made me roll my eyes. It's like a 2010's version of Leon: The Professional, almost. I really enjoyed it, overall.
  14. I forgot Daredevil was canned. I guess that means Punisher won't be back, which is a shame. I liked Jessica Jones, too. I didn't know that Disney was starting their own streaming service. I found this article which explains a lot if anyone else is in the dark like me: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/disney-disneyplus-streaming-service-name-release-date-shows-movies-to-expect/
  15. They got rid of Iron Fist (which was a bad show) and Luke Cage (which was a great one). Did they get rid of Jessica Jones and Daredevil, too?
  16. Been watching practically all day. Hoooooooly ****. Bernthal is awesome. They better not cancel this like they've canceled their other Marvel series. But the girl that he helps out this season is fantastic. Giorgia Whigham.
  17. That's the first thing I thought of when I saw that this year.

    ****in R. Kelly came up on my Apple Music suggestion list a couple days ago. I don't even like R&B. I'm not sure how that happened but I was like WTF. No, I don't want to listen to 12 Play.

    Things that you'd like to see come back in sports

    100% yes. I don't watch the NBA like I used to but I can't remember the last time I saw something like this: A truly violent slam. He totally pipes hard on Ewing, then Ewing stumbles, falls back and Pippen walks over him, ON THE WAY TO TELL to Spike Lee who's about as tall as Pippen's bozac to shut the **** up. I think this is more of a function of the NBA teams/players hating each other back then. I think by the time this happened things might have started cooling off a little bit as all these guys started being on Dream Teams together. The first crack in the NBA Cold War was Bird and Magic doing that Converse commercial together and becoming friends. If Bird and Magic could be friendly, it was all downhill from there. Now these guys talk about their wine collections together. I found this a few months ago, look at Bill Cartwright knocking Charles Barkley the **** OUT: The best thing here, aside from seeing Barkley getting demolished and having to be helped off the court is the old guy in the stands right around the :15 second mark who's clapping and pointing. Yeah, old timer, you came to MSG on a Friday night to watch the Knickerbockers and didn't know you were gonna see someone get knocked out on a Mike Tyson level by getting dunked on.

    Budget Fight (Trump Mantle / Border Security Shutdown))

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/17/entertainment/cardi-b-government-shutdown-trnd/index.html I can't believe we're in a place where elected officials are debating whether or not to RT a Cardi B rant about the shutdown. And the one Senator who tweeted "OMG, I had the same argument with myself 30 minutes ago!" like a teenager...just get the **** right out. I hate everybody.

  24. Hate to bust up the Tailgate with all the talks of Trump, package bombs in Austin and whether it should be deemed terrorism, Trump, social agendas, Trump, school shootings/gun control, Trump, Russia and Trump... But baseball season starts on March 29th. Twins at Orioles. 3:05 start. I don't feel good about this season, but the Orioles did sign Alex Cobb today. Cashner/Cobb should be an upgrade over Miley/Ubaldo. Still, the rotation is full of guys that are anywhere between #2s and #5s, depending on the day. The offense is still a high strikeout, low OBP, station to station plodding type with guys that need to have hyooooooge seasons if we want to compete. I think this is a 75 win team. Anyway, this is what we've been waiting for.
