So how did everyone boycott the BCS title game this year? As for me. I cleaned the kitchen while my wife watched Antiques Roadshow.
We should upvote the best boycotts, the one with the most votes wins the internet!
I know many people hate the NBA and the Pistons are down. But Derrick Rose is really, really good. I was entertained.
Same. I would be really happy if Monroe turned into a 20/10 guy.
But Monroe needs 1 of 2 things (or both): To gain some good weight (not a ton, like 10-15lbs) and a banger in the middle. I think he's more of a finesse 4, not a 5. He's never going to be Tim Duncan (who IMHO is the best NBA player since Jordan) but I think he can be that type of player... as long as he has a true center-type to protect him defensively.
-as an aside, that center type can be a Maxiell type. There aren't too many dominant Centers in the NBA, you just need a widebody who can rebound, defend and throw down.
I banged the wife, then went to bed early. But not that early.
just to blow s*** up
COD MW3 for me. I did my fair share of blowing s*** up and killing people.
except I don't stop at five dead hookers.
I watched a hodge-podge of shows, with the occasional flip back to the BCS game for score updates. I started with an episode of House Hunters International, then went to an episode of Holmes on Homes (which is spectacular for those who are interested in renovations and haven't see it yet), watched the first half of the Manchester United-Manchester City game (DON'T tell me how it ends!) and then finished up with an episode of Holmes Inspection. Flipped back to the BCS game in time to see Saban raise the trophy, felt sick to my stomach, and went to bed.
Sorry to ruin it for you, but the team from Manchester wins.
on Homes is Tremendous!
Is awesome... I do wish he'd spend more time showing us what he was doing, though. Give us your secrets!!!
The thing I've learned from that show: Get the right contractor. Check his references. Don't cut checks until the work is done. Pray.
One question I have about that show is who pays for his work? He goes all out and fixes things the way everyone would want them fixed but I'm sure its not cheap. Does the show cover it or does the homeowner have to pay? I saw one where the homeowner paid $70,000 more than they expected to pay for an addition and then Holmes came in to fix it all. I assume it was probably another $100,000! I hope the show pays for his work.
I was wondering the same thing. It looks like the show covers 80-90% of the cost. The labor is free since the TV show pays for their time. I want to know how I get one of those shows to my house...
I also learned that Holmes has his own line of worksite safety equipment, and an extremely useless iPhone app.
I was going to boycott the game but then I decided to watch it. First I grabbed a fifth of vodka and turned on the pre-game. Every time they mentioned SEC greatness in the same sentence, I would drink a shot of vodka. I was gone within 10 minutes. So in essence I boycotted the game.
...reruns of Gossip Girl as they prepare to come back from their mid-season break. My fingers are crossed that Chuck survives that nasty car accident. Chair 4ever!!!
Blake Lively's breasts are unreal. Seriously, I think she is entirely CG. Those things defy conventional wisdom.
I played beerio kart during the second half (For those of you don't know that's where you play Mario Kart 64, and for each race you must finish your beer before you cross the finish line for the third time. But as any good driver knows, you may not drink while you are also driving.) We also had a rule that there was a shot for every LSU score.
I set up a pair of studio monitors.
I watched the WVU vs. U Conn game. I then rewatched the Michigan vs. Wisconsin game on my DVR.
of people who really should consider how seriously they take their opposition to how college football selects a champ. Or how Michigan got "screwed" in '06. Either way, "calm down Francis" is the proper response to them.
and made $125. Also still got to see the game on random tv's there but not contribute my tv being on it.
I didn't watch the game, I was scouting for the 2012 opener. I emailed Hoke and Co. about possible exploits in the Bama D.
Played Starcraft 2. Not sorry.
Always a good decision!
Because I think it's BS. Played Force Unleashed 2 Wii instead.
i slept because i felt sick. watching that game would have also made me sleep too though.
Watched the replay on BTN of the Iowa-Oklahoma State wrestling meet from Saturday.
And went to Babys R Us to register for baby stuff with my wife. Once I got home, I continued to forget to watch the game and I went to bed at 10. I'm happy with my decisions. College football season ended last Tuesday night anyway.
When is your wife due? We've got our second coming in 3 weeks!
I thought Tebow was the second coming?
All kidding aside, congrats to both of you.
Well i was asleep until the second half, but that's about it.
League of Legends. Getting pretty good with Rammus.
Glitchy as hell, but, boy, does time fly by when one plays it.
Worked late. Talked to a ladyfriend. Read a book while drinking a Blue Moon.
A unique but refreshingly great choice.
give Balls, Jr. a bath and watched some Top Gear reruns on BBC. Those three fools might have the best job in history
Seriously! That is one of my favorite shows.
All I had to do was watch 10 minutes of that game before I turned on Tora, Tora, Tora. SEC is great? You can have it.
But if I didn't, I would have been forced to "boycott" the game due to the wife's show taking precedence over it.
Then turned off the tv and started studying for the PE exam............and drank some stones
Good luck on the PE exam.
Are you taking the second part or the EIT?
Been out of school for 6 years now and finally I don't have another newborn to keep me from studying. We'll see what happens come April!
I took the EIT years ago but I never took the second part...
So I wish you good luck on that.
I put the game on for about 10 minutes in the second half then starting flipping channels. When I came across "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" I realized several things at once:
1) That movie is terrible
2) As bad as it is, it seemed like a better option than the game
3) Realized that there was no way in hell I would watch that movie again
4) So I went to bed
two episodes of criminal minds (J.J. is smokin), drank 6.65 beers, watched a little bit of Where the Wild Things Are on Starz, got a little weirded out, changed it, prepared and ate some mashed potatoes and gravy, watched a little of the BCS national championship game, remembered boycott, changed it, took dog out to poop, cleaned poop up with a plastic bag, back inside, remembered a time when life still had meaning and possibility, shook my head, drank gigantic glass of water, went to bed. It was an above average Monday evening actually.
NCAA Football 2011.
The great news is that Michigan has only lost one game in the past three seasons, and started this season off with wins over #1 Alabama and #2 Stanford. Recruiting is going like gangbusters. So far, we've got three straight wins over everyone except for Iowa. Take that State! And you too Brutus!
do you explain the Iowa loss!? You need to have your team more prepared.
I know. They were ranked #5, and Michigan was unranked with a slew of meager talent. I scored a TD with a second left on the clock to make it 9-10. Since I was having LSU-like difficulties moving the ball, I went for two instead of settling for the PAT.
That decision haunts me to this day.
Also, I like to schedule App St as a warm up cupcake game. It's heartening to drop then 110-0 or something. It sorta kinda in a way makes up for The Horror. Momentarily, anyway.
watched Sons of Anarchy and played MW3..
Went from work to a farm field where I shot a 10 point buck as I was walking to the stand I was going to sit in. Then I got it home, hung it from the ceiling in the garage, and packed it with ice.
The real question is: Did you shoot it from the hip? If so, you win the internets today.
I made Pad See Ew then ate it. Made a giant caucasian (lebowski-style) - didn't care for it for some reason and dumped it, watched family guy reruns, asked my gf for sex but it was past the 10:30 cut off so no dice. Took some diphenhydramine and went to bed. Slept really well. Got up this morning listened to Mike and Mike and turned it off cause I'm boycotting post-game coverage as well. Listened to Mockingjay (books on tape) on the way in to work instead (ten year old is into it so I try to stay current).
I went to the Sugar Bowl, watched every BCS game, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, I find football more fun than proving nothing.
I watched the first half and managed to polish off a fifth of Crown Royal. I then proceeded to vomit all over the couch and passed out.
I was at the United Center watching the Bulls-Pistons game.
I was watching the BCS national title game between Bama and LSU. Boycotts are dumb.
I spent 30 minutes training the dog and followed up with 2 hours of talking to my laptop trying to learn German with Rosetta Stone.
Ich will nach Deutschland fahren und ficke heiße deutsche Frauen
Watched a little bit of Rango with the kids then played NCAA 12 and Uncharted 3.
Doesn't matter, had sex.
When I was visting my parents for Christmas I filled half my trunk up with Legos. I sat at home with the wife and built a a massive Lego castle while drinking. My wife arranged the heads and legs on the Lego castle guard to ensure they were fashionable (the ugly ones were banished to the opposing force).
We needed an end table on one side of our couch, so I built the a castle tower high enough you can use it to hold your beer if you set it beside the couch. I plan to spend tonight sitting on the coach, playing Skyrim, and resting my beer on my new Lego castle.
The game (?) last night drove me to start doing rails of coke so I could at least make it through my laundry. When this utterly failed I tried downloading porn videos (thanks coke) and blasting the volume of said videos through my earbuds. The wife walked in and was not pleased.
I slept on the couch, woke up with blue balls and sinus issues. What a finish to the CFB season! Thanks esesee.
My girlfriend and I opted to "go to bed early," as they say.
a football game between two great college teams because they have some sort of outrage against the system is really, really, messed up, and should re-evaluate how they live their lives and whether or not they should follow sports in the future.
For me, part of it is railing against the system but the other part is that I could care less about the SEC. It's pretty easy to get two great teams when you stretch the rules. But then again, I boycotted the Championship last year because you had a player who may have been getting money to play for his school. But I also boycotted last year's Sugar Bowl because of a team that cheated.
Sports are fun to watch when teams are playing by the same rules and live to those same rules.
I recorded two great movies on Comcast (Andromeda Strain and Jeremia Johnson) while the game was on. I hit the hot tub then checked in on the game. It was just as bad as I thought it would be.
I read the comments from the thread on Mgoblog.
Andromeda Strain, was great, Jeremia Johnson will be for tonight.
So I went to the dentist for a cleaning. Then I had dinner with my wife and daughter. Daughter made a spinach souffle and a vegan chocolate cake. I was scared, but it was good.
Ordered pizza and watched the Giants and Falcons game with a friend who is a huge giants fan but was out of town for the weekend and asked me to DVR it for him. FWIW, we ordered dominos
Little Caesar's run, read some more of a friend's memoir, read some stuff for work, checked tenor of board posts for game result, adjusted offseason status monitor accordingly.
