Victory With A Capital “V”
Wisconsin hung in there to go over number 3 ranked Ohio State last evening in Madison. They broke OSU’s 19-game winning streak and made them their bitches, even after Robert Fucking Reynolds started to choke out quarterback Jim Sorgi and put him out of the game with just over 5 minutes left in the third quarter. I will say this: Matt Schabert got it done. Period. Exclamation point. Afterwards, the fans stormed the field and started riding the goalpost. We’ll now go delayed live to peterstiffly of Madison with his comments:
Five god damn years of school at UW and I never got to storm the field. Tonight when I’m not there it happens. Yes, people were drunk as shit and I had to deal with them.
Indeed, peterstiffly. Indeed. So now Wisconsin is undefeated in the Big 10 and 6-1 overall. I’m sure everyone in Madison is waiting to see the new rankings on Monday morning. I know I am.
A New Chapter In The History Of The D
Last night Rock Chalk and I went to see School of Rock with my main man JB. The short form: I liked it. It was a comedy that didn’t make me want to vomit with stupidity. The long form: for the long form just hit up the little review I wrote in the Reviews section.
In other D news, I’ve been slowly downloading all of Tenacious D’s HBO show episodes. Each show is split into three ~10 minute stories, and I have around 6 or 7 stories at this point. I also managed to get two music videos (Tribute and Wonderboy) and also a live performance from Saturday Night Live. My plan is to put all of these on a DVD along with Heatvision and Jack to make a Jack Black Mega-Mix. That would rock.
I Still Hate San Francisco
On Friday night, we went to SF to see Dave Attell and Lewis Black at The Warfield. We had to drive up there because we didn’t know what time it got done and we couldn’t chance BART not running when the show was over. So Scientist and sourdoughsam showed up around 6pm, me and Scientist had a few drinks, and we left to go to the show. The guys had Red Bull vodkas in travel mugs while Rock Chalk was driving, and I had to piss something fierce as we drove the surface streets of San Fran. Of course, since it is San Francisco there is no goddamn place to park, and after the attendant at one lot said they weren’t open twenty-four hours, Madd suggested I piss on it. I pissed on their lot. We got into the theater and while the ladies went to get seats Madd and I went to get drinks. Except that you needed hand stamps and could only buy 1 drink at a time. I fucking hate that rule.
The show was absolutely great. The opener was Mitch Hedberg, who is apparently Madd’s favorite comedian. The dude was funny as fuck. “Swiss cheese is the only food you can take a bite out of and miss.” “In New York deli’s make huge sandwiches. ‘Can I have a pastrami sandwich, a loaf of bread, and a couple more people?'” Dave Attell was Dave Attell, and he told about half material from the CD I have (Skanks for the Memories) and half stuff I’ve never heard before. Good. Lewis Black was, as always, funny as hell. I don’t think he did any material from the time we saw him at the Improv a few months back.
After the show we drove back to San Mateo and sourdoughsam took her leave of us. Rock Chalk went to bed and the Scientist and I drove down to San Heezy. We got to Scott’s house and drank some bers, then went over to The Cinnabar. It was the first time I had been there, and it is somewhere we’re gonna have to go over Thanksgiving. It’s a little piece of the Silver Dollar in San Jose. I like the huge sign up on the wall that says “NO DANCING” because they don’t have a cabaret license or whatever that shit is. Scientist and Scott negotiated a deal with the batender: $28 plus tip for 3 Cinnabar trucker hats and 3 Hamm’s beers. It was like we were actually at a truck stop drinking for the evening. In a word: awesome. After I was thoroughly trashed (2 Red Bull & vodkas, 4 gimlets, 2 MGDs, 1 vodka tonic, and 1 Hamm’s) me and Madd went back to his place and played craps. I threw down $100, lost it, went in for another $100, got down to my last chips on that, and then went up $264. I quit when I was up the $64, so I ended with a profit. Not too bad.
The Star Of Green Bay: Soclose, Number 68
Well, it came down to the wire in Green Bay, and even after they were practically handed an overtime victory, an ill-timed fumble by Ahman Green wiped it all away. And as peterstiffly always says, “Prevent defense only prevents you from winning.” It seemed that during the drive when KC kicked the game-tying field goal Green Bay was in full prevent mode. And due to that, KC was able to throw 7 10-15 yard passes in 7 plays to move the entire field with no timeouts used in 2 minutes. In any case, 3-3 is not where Green Bay wants to be right now.
So far in my pool this week I’ve picked correctly 8 out of 9, and my afternoon picks are all winning their games as well. if I could go 13-1 this week it would rock.
Rock Chalk and I are hoping to take in a viewing of Kill Bill this week if the stars align. I’m looking forward to it, especially after Judd, Anthony, and Eric all gave a solid thumbs-up after seeing it on Friday. I’ll most likely write up a review after I see it.
