    D&C teased McPhee for 7:15 this morning, and she must have been a no show.

    Or did she come on late?

    I heard the beginning. She said something like the Globe backed up what she had reported. Doesn’t seem that way to me, but I didn’t stick around until coming back for the end when she made some weird comment about Hilary that she wouldn’t explain.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    “The latest info which contradicts me, actually totally backs up what I said” is the first line of defense they use when they fuck up.

    I’m hearing disturbing reports that Shawn Crable is the mastermind behind a plot to transport Michigan-purchased cans & bottles into New York State for the deposit money.

    Nothing will be saved. All will be lost. And our new onion-headed sad emoticon is unable to convey the depth of that loss. -10/22/25 (sic) Daily Thread

    Coach Matt said I could stay at his house while I’m out there so I’ll save on overhead…

    Free housing seems less likely to affect G&A than free truck, maybe 20%?

    SI Obtains Lakers Script for Apparent Paul George Pitch

    The NBA offseason is beyond terrible.  No wonder California Bill fancies himself an expert in this garbage.

    She’s a complete disgrace. Any other job you fuck up that badly and you’re gone, proving again that this is NOT a “profession.”

    I call it The Best League because most of the players and coaches agree with my progressive politics.

    I’ve honestly lost track – is she actually employed by anyone?

    Meteorologists probably get more leeway for being wrong. On the other hand, they’re trying to predict the weather every single day and they might have had to actually study in school.

    She’s on 40/40. Where a woman in her 40s has to finish 40oz of Schitz less than 4 minutes to plug her latest self funded screed.

    I believe it’s a Barstool thing.

    Bert with these bon mots:

    I thought it was hilarious to see a powerhouse like Germany fall behind 1-0 to Sweden, and look on Twitter, with like 60 minutes left, and see a bunch of tweets starting with “If this holds.” Two-thirds of the match left, defending champion down by 1, and it’s a potentially insurmountable deficit. You wouldn’t say that in a 7-0 football game in the second quarter ever, even if the ’85 Bears were the ones leading. (Note: Don’t get sensitive, that’s not an insult, it’s an observation.)

    Says some behavior is hilarious then concludes hey don’t get sensitive.  Sweden is a decent enough squad, and if Germany lost that match they were going to be eliminated from the knockout round.   So there was a level of importance to the match in general.  And no one was saying ‘it’s over, Germany is out!’ at that point – ‘if this holds’  is hedging on predicting a result and therefore not saying anything remotely close to an insurmountable deficit.  And he fucks up the analogy, people wouldn’t be saying ‘if this holds’ if the Bears were winning, they’d be saying it if they were losing as it wouldn’t be the expected outcome.

    I’m glad tipping players being selected to play in professional sports leagues ahead of a broadcast was seen as a crime against humanity.

    Doesn’t understand it’s the league and broadcast partners that pay for broadcast rights who don’t like it, and each of the media outlets handles it differently.  But sure, outrage/crimes against humanity.

    But I will say that I believe, and others do too, that Winston’s willingness to take the penalty without fighting would be a factor in the league’s discipline. And I think it’s a factor for Winston too, in that it would allow him to move past the incident fairly quickly.

    ‘Shut up and take it’ always works well.  Just like Bert when he got rung up for public urination, just took the punishment.  Didn’t try to invoke some case involving a disabled Vietnam vet or anything to get off, just said yessir judge.

    Well, based on what we now know about Batali kitchens, we might have to cross that off the list.
