    Yes every time this year I resent the fact I live in Illinois. Just a few more years and I can move somewhere southwest. I do know of a campground in Hawaii that is $5 a night. Get a plane ticket, find a walmart, buy a tent! Rent a car, score some meth, and follow Dog the Bounty Hunter all day saying Whudduup Bra!

    I’ve already said it, and Mac agreed with me, this has been the worst fucking winter I’ve had the misfortune of living through. Goddamnit, enough is enough! I know it isn’t his fault, but I have an absolutely insane urge to kick Tom Skilling right in the fucking balls. This winter hasn’t been “interesting”, it’s been a goddamn pain in the ass! I can’t stand his bullshit homespun act. I emailed that bastard once and he really didn’t like what I said. His nice guy routine is for TV, in real life, he’s an arrogant assbag who’s totally full of himself. And it seems like every time we get some kind of extreme winter, we get an extreme summer too. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m bracing myself for more 100+ degree days this year. I hope to hell I’m wrong, but we’ll see what happens I guess.

    Last summer was below average I believe. There were a lot of rainy days and not many where it was above normal. The summer of 2012 was horrendous with the drought and with days in a row of high 90’s and low 100’s. Last winter, was very mild so it’s just the way it is.

    Chucky, you know I’m there with you; this winter sucks goat balls. I’ve never liked Skilling. Believe it or not, he worked at Channel 27 (ABC) here in Madison before he went to WGN. And the fact that his brother is Jeff Skilling from Enron fame just adds to the family douchebaggery. I already told a friend of mine that the first person I hear this summer bitching about the heat gets their ass kicked, and added “I’m not kidding!” It’s all I can do to even drag my sorry ass out of bed every day. I suppose if my work day didn’t consist of being out in this shit half the day, it wouldn’t get to me as much. If I can somehow make my latest relationship work, I can see her and I getting the fuck out of this climate. I turned 55 a couple weeks ago, and I just can’t fucking do it anymore.

    I hear it’s been a bad one. That picture is bone chilling.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    It’s good to know I am not the only one who can’t stand Tom Skilling. I am surprised no one over there has to tried to ring his neck when he takes a half hour to do the weather.

  8. MadCityMac Says:

    Was it Steve Dahl who called him “little Tommy Skillet-head”?

  9. chucky Says:

    Could be. Can you just imagine what it’s like to have to work with that assbag egomaniac? I’d fucking kill myself! I don’t know how anybody can get in the same room with his overstuffed ego.

    Ah! Amon Amarth! I have seen them twice. For those that dont know they are giant deathmetal vikings from Sweden. That particular piece dvxprime chose for us is a song about Thor fighting a big snake, lol Thanks Bud!

    …somebody’s gotta have some heavy mining equipment lying around,..(?)


  13. Fro Dog Says:

    I think the person with that heavy mining equipment is in the Northern suburbs. STAY OUT OF THIS MAN’S WAY.

  14. Fro Dog Says:


    I am going to save the idiots some time and just make my argument before someone beats me to it. The Bulls trailed quite a bit in their game against the Mavericks Friday night before having a big fourth quarter to win.

    The Bulls missed nine free throws and had 21(!) turnovers in the game. Think about that.

    Without a doubt, ThomASS is good at coaching his players to win games. We have known that for years. The problem some of the morons forget is that he is a complete buffoon when it comes to managing minutes and disciplining players. Example: Jimmy Butler played 44 minutes in this game and Mike Dunleavy played all but nine seconds in the game against the Hawks earlier in the week. He almost had 42 in this one.

    As far discipline is concerned, who’s going to control the players when one of them acts like a dumbass in the playoffs? Anybody remember last year’s playoffs against the Heat and how idiots like Mohammed, Noah and Gibson decided to pick fights? How did that work out?

    There is no doubt in my mind that this same shit will happen again because let’s face it, it’s happened before. Ever year, the Bulls get eliminated from the playoffs for playing stupid. It’s the coach’s job to make sure that doesn’t happen.

  15. Cubs Bears Bulls Sox Suck Says:

    Calm down guys Jimmers coming it will be ok.

  16. Cubs Bears Bulls Sox Suck Says:

    Oh Shit! Looks like its going to be a fun hockey game. Go Hawks!

  17. MadCityMac Says:

    Take it from someone who knows, it’s not easy to pass and/or shoot the puck in snow, and I never had a good shot anyway (worst slapshot in the history of the planet!). Still fun watching it!

  18. MadCityMac Says:

    Fuck; 2 pipes in 30 seconds on that last powerplay. Dammit!

  19. MadCityMac Says:

    How the hell is an inadvertent clearing of the puck by Duncan Keith “delay of game”?

  20. Fro Dog Says:

    Ass-whooping! Jonathon Toews is a man among men.

  21. Cubs Bears Bulls Sox Suck Says:
    So Adam Silver is hard at work telling LeBron he cant were a black mask because people cant see his face. One month in office and your already getting TOOL points!

  22. Fro Dog Says:

    Fuck Silver. This guy has Roger Goodell written all over him. There are reports saying he wants to expand the court and add the possibility of a four-point shot. A commissioner in sports must be a really boring job.

  23. Fro Dog Says:

    By the way, Fredette isn’t really a bad player. He was just a victim of being on a shitty team. He can create his own shot at times and plays well off the pick and roll. Is ThomASS even going to play him or will he continue to make Mike Dunleavy and Jimmy Butler play 47 minutes a game?

  24. chucky Says:

    Fro……you’re going to Raw tomorrow night, aren’t you? I’ve got a spoiler alert for you bubby. You’re gonna like it!

  25. chucky Says:

    That should be “buddy”. Jesus Christ, what the fuck am I doing?

  26. Fro Dog Says:

    I think I already know what you’re going to say. Numerous reports have CM Punk agreeing to come back to work. If he doesn’t show tomorrow, it’s going to be a disaster for Vinny Mac. I have my signs ready to go too. My seat is the first row and I am going to be on the far right side of the ring. It should be pretty easy to show everyone that Larry wants his ice cream and wants it soon.

  27. chucky Says:

    You heard it too. I hope it’s true. There were also rumors that the crowd would totally hijack the show if he didn’t show. Any segment with HHH or Batista that they would turn their backs to the ring. I think Vince HAD to bring back Punk, at any cost.

    In any event, I’ll be watching the show, and looking for you and your signs. Tell Larry I hope he gets his ice cream, and more importantly, his title shot. I think you should tell Vince to make the WrestleMania main event a three way. Randy Orton vs. Batista vs. Larry Horse. That would rule!
