Bball and Rut

We played a Manayunk Bball game last night w/o our usually best player, CK4 would resent that, and ended up winning by double digits. Chad probably fired up close to 25 shots but he’s obviously our best offensive weapon so no one really cares. I think that’s one thing about our team and maybe the reason why we win, we just let our best offensive players takes the shots. There’s no complaining about not getting shots and everyone just goes along swimmingly. Jkash even busted a J right in some big oaf’s eye which was a rarity (no offense). He even fouled a guy who was coming down into the lane and the guy’s comment was “I think he raped me…).” Once again though we were out sized and came away with the W to go to 3-0 in that league with a game on Tuesday in the Ambler league.

In other news, I don’t have much going on. Just to give a brief update on things and what I’ve been doing. I’m halfway done the first season of the Soprano’s and I’m really enjoying it. If you have the 2nd season, and want to help me out, I will pay to have you ship it to me because it’s running $31 bucks. I’ve also been playing a ton of poker with mixed results. I fancy myself pretty good at heads up and jump started my bankroll that way. Then I won a 12 dollar 45 man on Saturday night at 3am after coming back from the bar. I have about 400 in my account and am really just waiting to breakthrough with a multi-table tourny win. I got 36th of 617 and have made runs in bigger fields but just can’t walk away with the W. Playing sort of makes me lazy but I’ve been hitting the gym and am still active. Until I go busto again, be prepared to have me periodically update my poker situation in the blog.

One unusual thing that has happened to me is that Dunkin Donuts raised their price of the combo I get to 4.17 instead of 3.86. Most people would just move on but this throws a huge monkey wrench in my daily routine. I like to have change in my car for various reasons but what this new price is doing is making me use a quarter instead of getting .14 cents back. I don’t have an unlimited supply of quarters and it’s starting to worry me that my change supply is going to dry up. Things like this are what really bother me. Now you might say, use a 5 dollar bill and get the .83 cents and problem is solved but it doesn’t work this way. If you have a change amount <.15 cents, you should try to use change so you don't have to make the cashier count out the change and fill your pockets with nickels and dimes. The sad thing is that every single day this event transpires, it's going to bother me until it gets to the point that I'm just going create a dept with rows and rows of .17 cent increments. Problem solved.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of Anberlin and I just think that this might be the best band I’ve heard in a long time. How can you tell if a band is good? If you play their CD and you don’t have to skip songs because they are all good. Gusto gave me all their music and I just start it and let it play through. I may post some of their better songs to give my readers a taste. That is all.

Primetime – Week 6

The other team made us look a lot better than we probably are and this week was a total one sided affair. The score ended 28-0 but they had few scoring opportunities and no real offensive threats. Plus I think we had 2 picks on two plays that were QB’s by girls. To have a girl QB doesn’t make a whole lot of sense because the field gets really congested and if they don’t have great arm strength, they just lollipop one that is asking to be picked. We had 4 int’s in the first half by Evan, Bake, and CK4. Jkash went down for a set of downs after landing on his shoulder funny. We only had 1 sub but it didn’t even make a difference for this game. Ck4 even got to play QB for a few plays. He also displayed a typical crybaby attitude when we were going to let Jess Baker take some snaps at Q and instead of handing the ball over he childishly throws the ball behind everyone in disgust. Certainly not a big deal but at 27 to still be acting like this hysterical. Let’s also add that passing to girls isn’t part of his arsenal. I’ll never forget CK4 crying after a 7th grade bball intramural lost after Chris Duntzee made some miracle bs fast break shot because Trevor Stutz shot the ball with 5 seconds left instead of holding. I don’t think he’ll ever forgive Trevor. Bottomline though was the game was an easy victory.

My fantasy football #’s were dynamite this week as I had McFadden in two leagues. A brilliant move to bench Kenny Britt in my one league and deciding to play Maclin and TO instead was my one mistake. I did manage to sweep all 4 leagues though so I should have a 2nd in Steve’s league, a 3rd in the Schmidt’s league, a 2nd in Baker’s league, and The Turkeys will be in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd depending on Miles Austin’s performance. All in all I’ve been pretty hot in fantasy and almost know what I’m doing.

I watched all my TV for Sunday too and I’ll just keep the trend going with what I think about each episode I watch. Eastbound and Down I thought returned to its glory and I was cracking up for the first few minutes. The way Kenny and his Dad would lie to each other had me rolling. When he called Stevie the poon was also classic. When they said the kid Casper was 15, that was ridiculous because he looked 30. I like when they leave that Mexican baseball crap out of it. I watched Dexter and even though Julia Styles is annoying me I still think the show is good. The Quinn / Dexter rivalry reminds me of Dexter and Doakes. I think the side murder plots aren’t nearly as good as anything that has to do with Dexter. Boardwalk Empire was OK but I think the show is losing some luster. I think the show is good but I don’t leave episodes the way I used to leave after watching the Wire. Californication is starting up again and that’s always a good show.

I had 30 viewers on a Sunday which is an astronomical number compared to what I’ve been getting so that was encouraging. People seem to find this blog when I write about Manayunk and the bars so I have to keep that in mind when tailoring my posts. Bball is on Tuesday night and I’m going to Pittsburgh on Thursday for the first time in a few years. I probably have to get a halloween costume just so I don’t feel left out.
