Thursday morning buffet

Short line, but tasty.

  • Josh Harvey-Clemons has a metabolism problem.  I hate him for that.
  • More Aaron Murray stat trivia.
  • Aw, shucks.
  • That is going to blow a lot of phones up.”
  • Check out this fun exercise over at the College Football Matrix blog winnowing out the eleven teams that are most likely to play for a national title this season.
  • Non-football, but if there’s a funnier punchline in a recent crime story than “Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said police did not arrest the dog…”, I haven’t seen it.

    Only number 2? That is some heavy bullshit man. You are clearly the best.
    If that dog had been in Georgia, he would have been honored at the capital for having his weapon ready at all times.

  2. What fresh hell is this?

    The dog wasn’t arrested? He must be on scholly at bama.

      Not arrested yet. Appears the ‘investigation’ isn’t complete. I think there’s more to come on this story once we learn more about this dog’s history of deviant behavior.

        They heard he was a loner. Didn’t run with pack. Kept to himself. Except when bitches were in heat or a gun show was at the Sebring Raceway.

        WCD- Since licking one’s own butt and testacles as well as those of other dogs isn’t considered devant behavior in dogs, what is? Coprophagia?

    Some of the comments in the dog story are pretty funny, but the:

    “A clear cut case of “Stand Your Hound”! ”

    comment was comedy gold.

    ‘Erudite’? Doesn’t that mean you have BO?

  5. DA man

    “The Senator is erudite.” Maybe he has a metabolism problem like Josh Harvey-Clemons? Congrats, Senator! We already told you that you were the greatest. Stay humble.

  6. Thankfully we, as your readership, don’t have to be erudite enough to know what erudite means.

    Short line , but tasty for sure, Bluto. The stat leftovers keep coming Aaron’s way and the recruiting flummox continues, except this time, the recruits are agreeing with the recruiting coaches.

    Even the 17-18 yr old kids know the NCAA is confused.

  8. So by using sound reasoning, we are top 5 most important commentators.

    Also on the dog thing, what does this mean? “The report said Lanier was not only surprised that the gun was loaded, but also that it was actually a 9mm weapon.”
    Huh?
    Did the cop say, “That’s a 9mm weapon” and the guy said in surprise and shock “WOW, I had no idea. You learn something new every day”?

    • not commentators, I meant commentors (not a word I know)…

    • Dog in Fla

      Actually it was the dog who told both the cop and the victim:

      “I’m not a real expert but I can give you some information.

      The .380 is an American name for the ammo. In Germany where the 9mm started, it is known as the 9mm kurtz which stands for short. It has the same diameter as the 9mm, but a less powerful cartridge.

      Being a lighter powder load it will of course have less recoil and flash. Now we get into a lot of different items:
      • A .380 will usually be a lighter, smaller gun (not always) and because it is lighter it may jump just as much in your paw as a 9mm.
      • A .380 won’t have as much muzzle velocity as a 9mm and will have less hitting power. 9mm have a lot of velocity and tend to shoot through a person and whatever is behind the target. Lots of penetration.
      • As far as accuracy goes, most handgun confrontations occur at a distance of 20 feet (FBI statistics). Especially in-home and personal defense or in a pickup truck, you wouldn’t be shooting at a great distance unless you’re in the bed of pickup truck shooting at a cop car chasing you.
      • For a basic all-around gun I like a wheel-gun (revolver). Personal favorite is S&W Model 66 w/4″ barrel. I have the option of firing .38 Special for target or .357 for effect. You can even fire snake-shot if your aim isn’t too good. In a real dog-fight you’d be surprised how inaccurate you can be. Plus a wheel-gun is easier to see if it is loaded and no worry if the safety is on or off. It don’t have one. You also can fire it double action or single action depending on circumstances. Another benefit is that it is stainless steel and relatively easy to keep clean. The downside is that makes it easier to dust for paw prints.”

        Dog Shoots Man: Billy E. Brown Wounded By Bulldog In Florida Hunting Accident ….. (Eli’s Coming! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/12/dog-shoots-man_n_1143890.html)

        • Dog in Fla

          “Representative Darrell Issa (Wingnut- Vista, CA.), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has suggested that it might be in order to issue a subpoena to Eli in order to have him testify before Congress so as to ascertain whether the weapon involved in the incident was one of estimated 2,000 lost firearms that “walked” across the Arizona boarder with Mexico as part of the now infamous and failed Fast and Furious gun tracking scheme concocted by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives [which wants to take our combat weapons away and use them to stimulate the Mexican economy]. Representative Issa wants to know “what Eli knew and when he knew it.”

          Liberal pundit and minor television personality, Jon Stewart, is labeling the entire messy affair “just another example of the vast, on-going right-wing conspiracy to undermine the progressives’ agenda to bring sanity to the nation by banishing all firearms from the public sector.” Asked to cite factual documentation and/or quotable sources to underpin his allegation, Stewart stated that, for the moment, he felt no need to concern himself with the trivial notion of factual proof, as the mere fact that he declared the matter so makes it so. Continued Stewart, “Besides, I just like saying ‘vast and on-going right-wing conspiracy.’ It has a nice ring to it.”

          AHD- what a dumb shit that guy was for carrying a Bulldog to a deer fight.

      • I prefer a 1777 Charleville Flintlock. .69 cal. 2F Powder. Not much for accuracy or rapid firing, but you can always finish things off with the Bayonet.

      • AusDawg85

        Your eruditeness on this subject DIF is frankly quite frightening. Please keep your meds handy at all times. ;-)

        • Dog in Fla

          Thanks and I really wasn’t even rude until I moved down here. I owe it all to the all too many people in Florida from New Jersey and the Five Boroughs (Four, if you don’t count Staten Island since it no longer exists after the so-called Weather Channel yankee superstorm). Better manic- depressive living through inexact brain chemistry!

    • Cosmic Dawg

      We’re just taters.

    is there irony in a guy named Sherman writing a piece in which he references the Confederate army getting whooped?

    • Dammit – I’m glad I scrolled to see if anyone else caught that. I smell a rat.

      And yes, the air is thick with irony. Wait, that might be disillusionment I’m referring to. But you get the idea.

    It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the gun in the dog’s paws?

    I didn’t realize Mike Leach wrote for the Capstone Report :) Kidding aside, Congrats Senator. This is still the only blog I check daily. I appreciate your intelligence and hard work.

  12. Senator, I thank you for the first opportunity in recent memory to use the word penultimate correctly.
