Open thread


Our friends, Dan and Carl from Fire Ron Turner, will be in Vegas watching the Super Bowl and getting drunk. I want the Patriots to win. Fuck the Seahawks and their smug coach. Sure, Bill Belichick comes off as a scum bag but it seems like his players aren’t assholes like Dick Sherman and Marshawn Lynch.

The floor is yours.

    Marshawn isn’t that bad, you just have to give him a giant bowl of skittles! Who knew he liked cat videos??

    I’m rooting for the Seahawks!

  2. Fro Dog Says:

    I can’t. I just can’t.

    By the way, are we still looking to go see the Blackhawks in February? If so, find a game and I will try to make it happen. We need to ask Mac as well. I don’t think he’s been to a game since the Chicago Stadium days. He’s due.

    Whatever happens in the Super Bowl, I want Marshawn Lynch to give the most epic Richard Pryor/R.Lee Ermey/Louis Gosset Jr./Bob Knight/Peter (“Network”) Finch all seven of the words you can’t say on TV rant ever.

  4. dvxprime Says:

    Or, he could just do this…

  5. dvxprime Says:

    Or this…

  6. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Fro, I would be interested in the day games SUN FEB 15, or SUN FEB 22, 2015 if you can find something that doesn’t break the bank. Let me know.

    If you need to know an answer right away to pull the trigger on some tickets email me and I will get it on my phone and respond asap to make arrangements for payment.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    I think the 15th would be better, but no answer for sure yet until I figure out my employees’ schedules. It would probably be another week until then. Right now, we’re looking at three tickets? I am sure we could find face value seats for real cheap. The 300 level isn’t awful.

    As far as the Super Bowl is concerned, I couldn’t give a flying fuck about this game. I will admit, a huge part of that is sour grapes from the way the fucking Packers gave away the NFC Championship game; I’m sure Jimmy D. is still as pissed as I am; don’t know his feelings about the Super Bowl. I’m sick of the Patriots. Sick of Brady, sick of Belichick. I’m sick of the Seahawks. I’m sick of Pete Carroll, I’m even sick of Russell Wilson, who I actually like (former Badger after all), and most of all, I’m really fucking sick of “the 12th man”. Those fucking hipster assholes in Seattle have surpassed St. Louis Cardinals’ fans as the most insufferable bastards on the planet. Fuck the “12s” up the ass with a rusty chainsaw!!! I probably wouldn’t even watch this over-hyped piece of shit if I wasn’t being coerced into a party at my favorite bar. My friend Dean, who owns the place (one of my best friends, who I used to work with at this fine establishment, the Plaza Tavern and Grill) has basically been giving me unending shit because I never go the Plaza Super Bowl party. Since it’s my birthday Sunday, having a hard time weaseling out of it. BUT, we are talking unlimited free beer, a ride home, and really cute 25 year old waitresses giving me birthday hugs and kisses. So fuck the game, I’m drinking my weight in beer Sunday!! And I have Monday off!

    Rofl at the story of the bleachers coming down during Wrigley’s renovation and Wrigley-ville being overrun by rats in batallions…

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    Anybody see the Bulls embarrass themselves on National Television last night to the Super Lakers? Five no name guys started (along with Carlos Boozer and Jeremy Lin coming off the bench) and beat these dip shits.

    Matt Spiegel said on The Score this morning that this team is becoming “very unlikable”. I have to agree. I am getting fucking tired of it.

    What a bunch of losers. They can join the Bears in Chicago teams that annoy the shit out of you.

  11. dvxprime Says:

    Super Bowl: I could give a rat’s ass myself. Probably a 10 minute drive to Buffalo Wild Wings, a $25-$30 dinner tab ( no beer whatsoever; there are five known speed traps between my house and BWW), Katy Perry, the SB commercials that HAVEN’t been protested yet (fucking crybabies), and whatever happens in the game. Stay tuned Monday for the post season rant from hell; the bullshit since the conference championship games was the last straw.

    Bulls: heard on The Herd w/Cowherd about how the Lakers blew the lead with 70 secs left in regulation. Also heard about the bad mood on the Bulls. They’re tired, they’re sore, they’re hurt…they’re sick of this shit. Even in this weak-ass Eastern Conference, it’s going to be a short playoffs for the Bulls.

    Go. Black. Hawks.

  12. genrebuster Says:

    Time for a new coach. Doh!

  13. Fro Dog Says:

    Okay Genre. They obviously think we’re stupid and they’re smart. So stupid, that the Bulls are currently losing 55-42 at halftime to the Suns.


  14. Fro Dog Says:

    Stats: Bulls miss their first seven free throws of this game. Sounds like a junior high team shooting to me.

  15. Fro Dog Says:

    Best wishes to the Seahawks. The most classless group of football players I have witnessed in quite some time. Fuck Pete Carroll and his smug face. Dick Sherman is an ass clown. After that crazy catch by the Kearse, I don’t think anyone thought the Patriots were going to win this game (crazy catches in past Super Bowls). But thank God for the piece of shit Pete Carroll with a great play call. What a scumbag.

    Congratulations to the New England Patriots. That is a group that gets it. They have a great owner, a damn good front office and awesome players. I wish the Bears were half of what they are.

    Oh, and stay classy, Seahawks.

  16. chucky Says:

    I am SO glad New England won that game. Pete Carroll proved himself to be a meatball as big as Lovie FUCKING Smith.



    Patrick Mannelly just quit the Score. His last show will be Feb. 13. Funny how he hangs it up the day after the Super Bowl. Let the conspiracy theories begin. Now is a chance to really revamp this lineup and lose some fucking idiot hacks who have outworn the their welcome.

    1. Mike Mulligan. I am so sick and tired of this guy laughing ALL THE TIME OVER PEOPLE TALKING I COULD SCREAM MYSELF!!!!. I think I just did that.

    2. Matt Spiegel. Useless sack of shit with terrible taste in music. And more bland than Mannelly.

    3. Dan Bernstein. It won’t happen, but I am tired of his fucking arrogant smugness.

    4. Bruce Levine. Never should have been hired in the first place. Moron.

    Now some guys who should be promoted to full-time hosts.

    1. Steve Rosenbloom. I love this guy. He’s funny, and even more important than that, he’s damn smart.

    2. Jason Goff. Three words about this guy. BRING. HIM. BACK. And do it now!!!!!!!! He was pure gold, and they were goddamned idiots for letting him go to Atlanta.


  17. Fro Dog Says:


    And I heard about Mannelly leaving on Friday. Yeti mentioned it over at Hockeenight. I was shocked. Oh well.

    I am going to with Rosenbloom/Grote or Holmes and Goff. I know you really like Goff and so do I. Spiegel is okay. I am glad McNeil has left the building and I really don’t want him back.

    Rosenbloom and Grote on Saturday mornings is the best. I use to be fairly critical of Rosenbloom many years ago, but warmed up to him about two or three years ago. I think those two would do well. If not, Holmes and Goff for sure. Holmes has been there a really long time and deserves a regular slot other than the weeknight program.

  18. genrebuster Says:

    If the Bears were half as good as the Patriots….they’d be a helluva lot better than they are!

    And say what you want to about Belichik…but I say GREAT. Same for Brady, Edelman and a host of others….

  19. chucky Says:

    Fro….really? On Friday? I guess I’m a little slow on the draw. I will try to do better next time.

    Genre… ready for spring training? Only two weeks away my frendt!

  20. chucky Says:

    Fro……ever wonder why I hate the Score (mis)management so fucking much? Here’s why.

    From the Tribune: “I’m glad Pat is not leaving the station,” said Mitch Rosen, WSCR’s program director. “I love having him on our team. … Our football coverage will be better with him focusing on that. We should have a replacement in the near future.”

    As for a replacement, don’t discount the possibility that McNeil could return. McNeil always has done strong ratings for WSCR, and being in limbo since leaving the station could have him re-evaluating his job status.

    Robert Feder reported Friday that WSCR also could turn to veteran radio/TV host David Kaplan and Tribune sports columnist David Haugh in the midday slot. Feder cited sources saying that Tribune Media would be willing to release Kaplan from the remaining 11 months of his contract with WGN-AM 720.

    Hey Mitch, you dumb fuck, did it ever occur to your sorry ass that the reason WGN would be willing to release Kraplan from a contract with 11 months remaining on it is because HE FUCKING SUCKS!?!?! God-fucking-dammit to hell, you cannot be considering a couple of bags of fucking dog shit like Krap and Haugh when you have so many far better alteratives. If you do hire one or both of those dumb fucks, or if you bring back an asshole like McNeil, I’ll make it my mission in life to make sure you will be forever make your living by delivering Dominoes Pizza for the rest of your useless fucking life. Next thing I’ll be hearing from your sorry ass will be your annoucement that you’ll be bringing back Mike Murphy and Fred Huebner.

  21. Fro Dog Says:

    I saw those options. Mitch Rosen is a moron. It wouldn’t surprise me if they brought in McNeil again.
