I Made Pro Bowl In 1981

I bet you didn’t know that I played safety for five seasons with the Pats (pro bowl!), then the Chargers and Rams. To be fair I had no idea myself until I read it on Tom Maguire’s blog. You think I would remember something like that.

Treat this as an open thread.

    What’s in a name? Sorry about my confusion – Fortunately I was not under oath, because I could have sworn I had read “Tim Fox” instead of “Tim F.”

    Tim F. says:

    No worries. A commenter used the same name on another thread so I thought there might be something going on.

    Until northern Alaska gets an NFL team, fuck you all!

    I heard you have to watch the first 4 seasons before you “get it.”

    Yes, but I have it on good authority that the Pats suck.
    However, I do admire your restraint. You could have devoted weeks to winding up the guys on Just One Minute [I’m ‘baitin].

    I watched two episodes and my hair fell out.

    Can’t you sue for that, or get rogaine or something?

    That’s what you get for not always wearing your helmet, Tim. Bet you’ve also forgotten all about your movie work, haven’t you?

    Actually, I thought I’d try to capture the effect and sell it as a depilatory.

    Since it’s open thread, I just gotta say Keith’s Olbermann’s special comment pretty much sums up my disgust. I haven’t seen a performance like that in quite a while that so articulates what I was feeling.

    BTW what’s with the amazon book list on the left:
    “Calvin Klein’s Men’s XT Gripper Jam”, “Big book of Drawing and Painting (with a pic of a naked chick), and “Pimps, Whores and Welfare Brats”. :-)

    Someone bring out the tequila..

    Heh, according to Maguire’s commentors… We’re all moonbats.

    I guess the last six republicans on the planet still hang out over there.

    Wrong Tim Fox. He’s obviously this one. The guy who played Trouble Maker No 2 in We’re the Government and you’re not!

    Who do you guys like better, Alizee or Beyonce? Be honest.

    Wow, what a question.

    The only equivalent I can think of is this:
    Would you rather make out with the most beautiful, sexiest French woman in the entire universe on a pile of hundred dollar bills while being elected President, discovering the cure for cancer, and fixing the Middle East, while the 2nd and 3rd most beautiful women in the world, Monica Bellucci and Melissa Theuriau, are waiting their turn, or would you rather be yelled at by a no-talent skank with an armpit problem?

    Actually, that might be understating things a bit.

    Alizee for the win.

    I’ve rethought the ex-gay homosexual conversion thing. We might as well give it a try if they want. But we can do it really, really, efficiently. If the last minute of this video doesn’t work, nothing ever, ever will.

    Also, Beyonce has thick ankles. Gross.

    Shall I go on?

  20. 20

    That’s one vote for Alizee, I take it.

  21. 21

    I think Alizee’s pretty hot, but personally I like Beyonce.

    So sue me, fuckers. I’m fat, immortal, old, and undead. No accountin’ for taste, is there?

    Ho ho ho, bitches!

    The Other Steve says:

    Dane Cook – Bad, I know. But there’s a good chance he ends up dying a gruesome death. So that’s good, right?

  23. 23

    How about Alizee versus Angelina Jolie?

  24. 24
    The Other Steve says:

    I’ll take Alizee for $100, Alex.

  25. 25

    Alizee-2
    Beyonce-1
    Angelina-0

    Damn. This is a rough crowd. Or is it just ‘cuz she’s French, and you guys are all moonbats?

    Depending on which patch of hair, perhaps I should get the girlfriend to watch it.

    I think Angelina’s character on “Girl Interrupted” was not a character at all, it was her Angelina playing herself.

    I have a thing for crazy women. Mrs. Klaus may seem sweet and nice in all the movies, but believe me, she’s a sociopath with as wanton a disregard for human life as ever landed a man in the death house. Why, if she even suspected I was asking these questions, she’d gut me like a trout from crotch to sternum.

    Ho ho ho, bitches!

    Don’t read this too quickly, lest you befall my bad luck and get the relationship between the words “crotch” and “trout” and “gut” all mixed up, and then get all grossed out unecessarily.

    Or, alternatively, DO read it too quickly, if jumbling those words would result in something that really churns your butter.

    Whatever floats your boat, folks!

    I am a failed Zoology major, and all that, but …. can you point me to the crotch on a trout?

    Thanks. I just want to add this to my general knowledge.

    It’s where the back tail meets the underside-thingies. Near where the poop comes out.

    Jesus, I hope I’m not tittilating anyone.

    I don’t get it. “She’d trout me like a crotch from gut to sternum?” “She’d crotch me like a gut from trout to sternum?” “Her crotch went from my sternum to her trout?”

    Maybe it’s only seen on the trouser trout.
