• Its Been Great

    The news channels have been very busy today with the Doomsday guy. He's been running full-page ads in USA Today claiming that the world will end on May 21 (tomorrow).
    I doubt that it will happen tomorrow but just in case it does, I want to tell all of you what a great gig this has been.
    It's been a lot of fun talking (blogging?) football with old Bengal friends and all the savvy bloggers who take part in these conversations.
    Thank you for a fine experience. Jerry Jones

    TO MISSION CONTROL:
    Please remove this entry if we are still here on May 22. JJ

      I drank a bottle of scotch. If the Rapture doesn't hit before the hangover gets here I'm gonna be mad.

      Clem, it's only 9:14 here on the Left Coast.

      So you're saying there's still a chance I'll avoid the hangover?

      How many Doomsdays does this make in our lifetime? What is the over/under for the next Doomsday? Clem, you are good bro' I hope you enjoyed the scotch and avoid a major hangover. How many malts?

      Single malt always. Glenmorangie last night (not really a whole bottle though).

      Dave-

      On the over/under, apparently this guy does this every year and he does, at times, include a conditional statement that God may change his mind and maybe it will be next May 21.
      Today's news may be the start of "the end" since we now have all the athletes from the NBA, NHL and MLB bringing a companion case forward in an attempt to eliminate all lockouts.
      "Free agent everything" could be the result and you were quite right with your earlier observation of less of everything, fewer franchises, fewer players, less TV money, etc.
      On and on it goes.

      Well since we are going football truth on right now, this is mine.

      1) The day Freeman was drafted I cursed and yelled so much that my friends still make fun of me for it.Now I talked myself into him a week later but alas the damage had already been done.

      2) I used to skip NFL Sundays to go play Ultimate Frisbee & just call friends to get the scores if I couldn't find a way to pull up a Buccaneers game (since I don't live in market) or it turned into a major blowout lose& come back in time to watch the SNF game and highlights.

      3) The next jersey I ever owned that had to do with Bucs after my initial Creamsicle Warren Sapp 1 of my youth is a #24 Caddy Williams Jersey that was given to me in 2009. I secretly root for him to be resigned to the team just so I can still wear it and it not be considered retro.

      Whew.. felt good to get that off my chest and if Internet is still around after tomorrow, well I will put some serious thought in deleting this post haha

      It the rapture doesn't get us this year, the Mayans will get us next year with their calendar.

      My favorite part is that this same guy incorrectly predicted the rapture before in the 1990s. At least he has experience in his field.

      Seems like a rather extreme way to end the lockout

      I believe the exact biblical quote is, "No man knows." My question is, why did this guy think he had the inside track, and what made some people believe him?

      I think Clem just needed a reason to drink. I don't know why he feels the need for a reason.
    1. Ragar's Avatar
      All I know is, it's past 6 o'clock eastern (rapture time), and I was sitting in a Mexican restaurant, drinking beer and eating burritos. Where is my rapture!!!

      (maybe later tonight when those burritos decide to make their presence known again?)

      Pretty sure Clem was going to have some kool aid last night, threat of apocalypse or not.

      Kool-aid is poisonous. You have to mix it with gin to make it safe.

      Dec. 21, 2012. Mayan calendar ends on that date, so that must mean the world is due to end on that day..

      Nope, the 8th circuit court of appeals granted a permanent stay on the rapture, so we're all good for the lockout to continue.

      LOCKOUT = No football. Therefore, the Lockout and those imposing it SUCK!!!
