    Let’s Close It Out.

     

    Draft weekend, where the un-athletic and un-informed tell the professionals that they screwed up their draft.

    I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to send my condolences to the family of the actor who played my good friend Jack O’Callahan in the movie “Miracle.”

    Gerry and Kirk have moved on to Tony Robbins…nary a mention of gay Aaron at all.

    I actually think Deshaun Watson is going to be pretty good. So if he catches on by the end of this season, Houston could be tough in the playoffs.

     

    EDIT: You don’t get much more definitive than that analysis. Suck it, other football opinions!

    So you’re saying there’s good players available when you keep being the sixth worst team in the league? :lol:

    The only thing for sure about the NFL draft is that a bunch of ‘cant miss’ prospects will be duds, a bunch of ‘projects’ will go in the have very productive careers and a few guys nobody will bother to draft will make an NFL team over a more highly rated player. Come the end on Saturday some teams will have had great drafts and others will have had terrible drafts, but nobody can tell what category they fit in for a few years. All of the 10s of thousands or words that will be written about the draft come Sunday and Monday are essentially worthless.  Honestly 5 years ago did anybody think that drafting RG3 would basically  light the fuse on the end of Mike Shanahans head coaching career? Or that the the mother load of draft picks obtained by the Rams would have so little on-field impact that the franchise would relocate to LA?

    Eisen sounded like he wanted to cry last night when Jeremiah said the Jets have the worst roster in the league.

    It’s a fairly non-controversial statement, too. The other bad teams improved a bit in free agency.

    First of all the ladies look stunning.

    Carl Weathers looks like he found a good gym. Last time I saw him on TV was on the Shield he looked like crap, but then he was playing a character. ACTING!

    So that pretty much closes the book on a Jimmy deal this year, right?

    Some people ripping Cleveland but I think they did well. Most “experts” like next year’s QBs better and they’ll probably stink again anyhow with a good chance of getting one of them.

    Agreed, as does Carl Weathers, and he doesn’t mess around.

     

    eh, bound to happen.  Why was he there? Free buffet?

    o/u on combined free throws for Butler/Wade tonight? I’ll go 20.5.  Surprised to see their total for the series is only 63 combined.

    Same here Lazlo.  I saw Rocky 4 on consecutive days in two different theatres, which is impressive as an 11 year old with a limited allowance.  It was because of the fervent patriotism on display (especially day 2- “U-S-A! U-S-A!” as Rocky mounted his comeback) that out of respect I have never watched any subsequent entries in the franchise.  I know Creed is supposed to be great, but unlike Rocky, Drago, and the thousands of commie bastards in the audience, I can’t change.

    3 and 4 are unwatchable. Even 1 is pretty bizarre. There’s the weird undercurrent of incest between Adrian and Paulie and they just kind of randomly scream at each other. Adrian is not “shy” she’s clearly on the spectrum with severe social disorders. And they aren’t even trying to play it like that, it just comes out that way. And Rocky is…I don’t even know what. He just grunts a lot. It’s fucking insane. Creed is the best of the bunch, IMO.

    Weathers was in the first season of Colony. I can’t even remember what happened to him. Killed off maybe? But he’s not in Season 2.

    I fully agree that if Rocky 4 came out now I’d think it was ridiculous, but it hit me in a sweet spot.  Me and my cousins were getting into boxing (built a ring in the yard, etc) plus I was a burgeoning cold warrior :lol:.  I once sat down with a stopwatch to see how much of the movie wasn’t montage but I gave up, wish I had followed through.  Per IMDB the movie is 91 minutes, I’d say at least 1/3 montage?  “Heart’s on fire” still on the mix I use to run 5ks, timed for my version of Heartbreak Hill, around 2.5 miles or so :ohmy:   :lol:

    When Rocky came out I don’t think there was any real acceptance that people were ‘on the spectrum’ or suffered from ‘social anxiety disorders’. They were just wierdos and typically portrayed that way on film.  I went to grade school with a kid that was obsessed with dinosaurs. Not just ‘really into’ dinosaurs but obsessed with them. It was a catholic school and when he drew a dinosaur ascending into heaven instead of the Blessed Virgin Mary the Nun teacher 100% lost her shit. Looking back that kid was clearly on some type of spectrum but the only services he got a Sacred Heart was a ton of shit for not listening to directions and being a general pain in the ass.
