    Happy Thanksgiving fitness friends.

    Fro….even though you’ve stopped following them, you forgot one.


    And just a random thought about the MLB Hall of Fame. Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas are first timers this year, and congratulations to both. Much deserved on both counts. I hope you get in on your first shots at it, especially Maddux. But I only have one worry. If Thomas gets in on his first try, and I believe he should, can you imagine just how obnoxious Ken Harrelson is going to be next season? YEEEEEEESSSSSSSHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! White Sox telecasts are already unwatchable because of that crazy ass buffoon, but he”ll be as fucking crazy as an outhouse rat in the dead of winter when it happens. And before anybody says “don’t watch”, remember this: His sound bites are going to be plastered all sports radio for a god 6 months next summer. It’ll be unavoidable. So if you enjoy that stuff, you’re going to be set.

    Be safe this holiday men. I may need to bitch some more in the future, and I just might need you guys here.

    chucky…are you sure it isn’t Cubs = PATHETIC.

    Or, Cubs = BAAAAAAAAAH.

    Or, Cubs = Barf

    ???? Just asking.

  3. chucky Says:

    That works as well genre. I was simply trying to maintain FroDogs angry theme. Your three suggestions are good though.

  4. Cubs Suck Says:

    Im still mourning the lose of The Rush…
    At least Bob McMillan got a job with L.A. Kiss and I can say I know a guy that knows Gene Simmons!
    Happy Turkey Day!

  5. Cubs Suck Says:

    By the way looks like FOX is fucking up the aspect ratio and we get to watch the game on a little cube in the middle of your tv. Ya think someone would have told them by now, Incompetent Bastards!

  6. chucky Says:

    CS…..Do you know if that includes Fox Sports 1? That is the station that used to be Speed Channel. I ask because that is the station that carries AMA motorcycle road racing, specifically, the races I go and watch at Road America every year. The quality of the coverage went way down when they took it over, but still, it is better than nothing. I hope they can fix that ratio problem before June!

    Guys, Happy Thanksgiving to all! Already in to my food coma watching my Packers; I like their odds today only because it seems Detroit can’t hang onto the damn football. I’ll be thinking of you all while freezing my ass off at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison Saturday watching my Badgers take down Pedophile State, section W, row 41. Ahhh, cold beer at a frigid tailgate party…

  8. Cubs Suck Says:

    They fixed it Chucky, was only temporary. Still annoying when I have a 60″ TV and can only watch 20″s of it.
    Packers arent looking too good….

  9. chucky Says:

    Good to hear that CS. Thank you.

    Mac…..Good to hear from you again man. Where the hell have you been man? Please, do not be a stranger. Come around more often! Have a great time on Saturday. Don’t freeze to death. And I hope to hell your Badgers kick the goddamned shit out of Pedophile State. I am definitely with you on that!

  10. MadCityMac Says:

    Thanks Chucky! I’m sure I’ll be freezing my nuts off (YARRR), but hopefully a good time will be had. First time in like 30 years I’ve made it to more than one Badger game in a year; actually been to the last 4 in a row. A whole group of my drinking buddies has 10 seats together and one of them, who was my best man many moons ago, just doesn’t go to the games anymore. I’ll be on the aisle between section W and X; convenient for me and my peanut bladder! BTW, I may have been wrong about the Packers today- they flat out suck.

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    That sucks that the Rush didn’t stay in the league. I thought Ditka still owned the team. They won the Arena Bowl in 2006.

    Also, when we Bears fans need the Packers to win, they don’t. If the Bears lose Sunday, they are two games out with four games to go. I have tickets for the Monday night game against the Cowboys the week after. I am praying it will be worth freezing my ass off.

  12. MadCityMac Says:

    Fro, that Packer game was one of the ugliest in recent memory. Don’t count on them to help anybody anytime soon, until Dom Capers’ ass is out the door. I was actually hoping the Lions would end up with over 600 yds. total offense just tp put an exclamation on how bad the Packers’ D is. Looks like the Packers and Bears will both be watching the playoffs.

  13. MadCityMac Says:

    …and BTW, thank you for the Hilary Knight pics!

  14. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Packers need more than a D. Please get this team a few guys who can protect the QB. Amazing how a stud QB can mask so many deficiencies.

  15. Fro Dog Says:

    Mac, not an issue at all. I knew you would love that article. You have been following Badger hockey your entire life. You’ve seen many babes come and go up there. I have already made my decision and she’s the best to ever come out of there. I wish you and your family a good Thanksgiving as well.

    What happened to the Packers? I thought their defense was much better during their Super Bowl year. I know, things can fall apart quickly in the NFL but that’s pretty soon. I don’t know why I still think the Bears have a shot, but it’s wishful thinking. I want them to win.

  16. Cubs Suck Says:

    Stumbled on this a day late but who cares it’s still great….

  17. Fro Dog Says:

    I love those skits. I have found a couple of them, including that one online lately. They’re hard to find because NBC loves keeping them in vaults and if they find more of any kind of footage from their company, they’ll pull the videos off the web.

  18. chucky Says:

    Fro….if you’re interested in getting any of those videos before NBC pulls the plug on them, download Real Player. Real Player allows you to actually download many of those videos, especially from You Tube. I downloaded the Lord and Lady Douchebag skit from a episode of Saturday Night Live from 1980. Try and find it now. You won’t be able to because as you said, NBC yanked it because of some bullshit copyright infringement. One thing though….you’ll only be able to play those downloaded videos on Real Player. Nothing else will work. But you should give it a shot. It’s worth it.

  19. Cubs Suck Says:

    Chucky, is it possible to convert them to ISO and put them on DVD?? Tried it? Looked into it?

  20. chucky Says:

    CS….I really don’t know. Unfortunately, I’m not that smart. I suppose it’s possible somehow. If your computer had the hardware and the software to burn DVDs it probably wouldn’t be difficult at all. But no, I never looked into it. People at Best Buy may have an answer for you too. Maybe you could try that. I’m sorry I can’t answer you any better than that.

  21. Cubs Suck Says:

    11 round shootouts are cool

  22. Fro Dog Says:

    Not really, but it was fun seeing them come back and win. Win or lose, that team never packs it in. They’re the best team in the NHL once again.

  23. genrebuster Says:

    Well, that sucked. Good thing I didn’t have to “see it”…the NFL pre-empted the ending with a post-game show….WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!
