Are You Ready For Some Football

For some, March madness means basketball. Not the crowd I run with. This time of year is getting ready for the NFL draft April 22nd. Pouring over mock drafts is part of that process. Dude, Sy, here’s your chance to lay it on. After all, I have not been very kind to Big 12 football.

I took the following pic in KC when the STEELERS were playing, er gettin their ass’es handed to em.  This is the play that Big Ben got  his concussion on. Big Ben might be Pig Ben. If it’s true, trade his ass while he still has value. The STEELERS are rebuilding anyway.

Start your own blog if you want to talk sports.
I see no redeeming SouthDaCola qualities in a post like this… yet again I ask.. DL, how drunk were you when you gave this guy a login?

#2 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 9:07 am

AG.

Nothing wrong with trying to lighten things up a little bit. A guy doesn’t need to be angry 24/7…like you. You’d be MUCH more at home over on the Argus forum where your kind flourish.

l3wis…I know the premise of your blog…but still, I gotta believe a changeup is not that bad a thing. If you agree with AG, then by all means, send me and my login rights down the memory hole.

L3wis,

Looks like someone’s jealous. Might want to pick up some flowers and a nice bottle of wine on your way home from the office.

Poly:

First of all, anyone who thinks McCoy should even be sniffing, let alone holding Suh’s jock needs therapy nearly as bad as Angry Guy. McCoy’s got talent, but disappeared in games this year. Suh dominated in a way not seen since Reggie White. Suh crushed him at the combine, statisitically and on film.

If the Steelers want to lauch Big Ben, I’d like to see the Vikes take him. Farve might have one good year left, and if so awesome. Put them both in camp and let the best man win the job of taking them back to the Super Bowl. Maybe they could move up and get Clausen, although they could stay put and end up with McCoy or even golden boy Tebow, where they could fire up the wildcat and relive the “slash” days.

If BB stays, then maybe they should move up and make a grab for Okung, Okie State’s best lineman in years.

Scott Wright has the Steelers taking Spiller, which would be a nice grab. I think CJ’s the best back in the draft and will hurt people with his speed. I also like them replacing Williams with Williams to help out Williams on the D-line, provinding they can all stay out of jail.

#4 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 9:26 am

Sy.

From what I’ve read about Suh, he is a player that comes along once in a decade. That being said, Detroit might pass on him to take Okung, also a very gifted LT. Brsadford is the franchise in Detroit, and he needs to be kept upright. Tampa Bay may well end up with the best pure atlete to come along in quite some time.

Big Ben? He’s starting to concern true Steeler fans. Once being in the wrong spot at the wrong time is one thing. Twice? Maybe not so much. IF Ben did what is alleged, trade his ass to Oakland.

I think the Steelers should take the best Offensive lineman available at Eighteen. But I’ve been sayin that for the last five years, and they haven’t done it yet. Now their OL is a mess. That’s not a Superbowl recipe, or a playoff one for that matter. I keep readin Taylor Mays. Polamalu can’t seem to stay healthy, but when you play with his intensity, who could?

The Vikes? Maybe Tebow?

#6 Costner on 03.16.10 at 10:12 am

Gotta agree with AG on this one. Sports talk doesn’t exactly meld with the “snarkiest political blog” moniker unless you find an athlete retiring to run for a city council seat or something.

Pardon the pun, but this just seems like it is out of left field.

#7 Johhny Roastbeef on 03.16.10 at 10:13 am

A sports post on South Dacola? Funny.

#8 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 10:31 am

Costner, AG.

I started this posting to interact with two other regular readers. Sy, and the Dude. Did not expect comments from anyone else. We’ve had fun with it in the past, and thought I could continue on here. As you can see from the opening, this was sports related. If you don’t like it…don’t open it. It’s still a freedom you have. Exercise it.

And l3wis..again, if you feel this thread is out of line, flush it. It’s not like it would be something new. There are forums where I cannot put FEE and HARVESTING together without it being flushed.

#9 Angry Guy on 03.16.10 at 10:37 am

poor Poly. If you want to start a conversation with two people, do it in an email. You have a login here (not that I have any right to tell you how to post, I just think you’re a selfish idiot) to contribute content that everyone might find relevant, not just a couple people you feel might enjoy a little banter about shit that the rest of us couldn’t give a fuck less about.

DL isn’t going to delete this thread, it isn’t his style.

#10 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 11:00 am

Sports talk doesn’t exactly meld with the “snarkiest political blog” moniker

So being politicaaly snarky is a pre-reqiusite to posting here? Gee. last time I looked I find very little of what Eggbert posts as being “politically snarky”. Maybe you can point out the political snarkiness of these threads?

https://www.southdacola.com/blog/category/babe/

https://www.southdacola.com/blog/category/fax-jokes/

https://www.southdacola.com/blog/category/music/

And now all of a sudden someone is posting outside the polical snarkiness box?

And AG. STFU

#11 Costner on 03.16.10 at 11:59 am

Poly: I started this posting to interact with two other regular readers. Sy, and the Dude. Did not expect comments from anyone else.

Oh so right up front you make it clear your primary goal was to talk to two other forum members both of which you have email addresses for.

Congratulations… you win the “I suck at the Internet” award of the day. Maybe one day you will actually contribute something worthwhile to this blog… but sadly – not today.

#12 l3wis on 03.16.10 at 12:00 pm

They were making fun of me the other night at work because they were talking about some famous NFL guy who got busted for molesting a woman (go figure) and all I caught was the tail end of the convo, and I said “Did this Ben guy used to work here.” and they all started laughing. I basically told them I don’t watch sports, because it is an incredible waste of time.

#13 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 12:39 pm

both of which you have email addresses for.

I do? If I do that would be news to me. The Dude, Sy, and myself have communicated before by private messaging on the Argus forum, that do not include e-mail addresses. Don’t recall e-mail addressing at all.

Moot point anyway. Eggbert has politically snarky posts? All the threads under BABES,FAX-JOKES, and MUSIC are
politically snarky enough for you, just SPORTS somehow trips your “lets tar and feather the f’er.”

Grow a pair costner.

#14 Sy on 03.16.10 at 1:48 pm

Well to each his or her own, right?

There’s a massive amount of Sports fans who would argue that political blogging is as much as waste of time. You bring up a politics on a sports blog and many times it will be locked or deleted.

It’s not like the two worlds don’t intertwine, in fact when Congress finished wrecking Health Care they may very well move on to “fixing” college football by adding a playoff.

One thing a thread like this does is it highlights certain posters natural instincts to be petty dickheads. Look over to your right and you’ll see all kinds of categories of crap that’s been discussed that isn’t political.

Like poly said, not your bag..than why read past the headline?

#15 Angry Guy on 03.16.10 at 1:52 pm

Yep. You nailed it genius. A post JUST about sports isn’t snarky at all. I’m not saying that there aren’t other posts out there that lack in the snark dept, but most of them are at least trying to fit in. Not you. No sir! You come right out and state that you weren’t even trying to be funny, in fact, you even said that you only wanted to interact with two other people on this thread and not all of us as it should be.

Lets talk about you not knowing if you have the email addresses for GoD & SyTFU. Assuming that these two “anonymous” souls are posting on this blog with their legit email addresses, (which are required to post comments) you would have these in your inbox every time they comment. You inbox is where email is delivered by default. Email is like a letter you would send in the mail, but instead of a postman, it is sent as binary (ones and zeros) over miles and miles of wires that run into your house an terminate at your personal computer or Macintosh.
Further reference to these materials can be found here.

#16 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 2:29 pm

Lets talk about you not knowing if you have the email addresses for GoD & SyTFU.

The e-mail address I use to communicate here was set up thru Yahoo. It, along with several others, are accounts I use for the same reason, and accounts I need not go back to after I’ve given places like this the info they need.

Sy:

I guess the snark police don’t like football. Fine, I guess as long as I throw in some tits and ass they’d be OK with it.

Let’s get together sometime and talk some football, NFL draft style. NO politics tho.

#17 Angry Guy on 03.16.10 at 2:35 pm

You’re doing it wrong.

#18 Costner on 03.16.10 at 3:16 pm

Eggbert has politically snarky posts?

At least Eggbert has 50% of the equation by being snarky… I’ll give him that much. However, the least that could be said is his posts are entertaining – can’t say the same for yours I’m afraid.

Sure seems like you get easily offended when people question the quality of your content. Sure I have a choice whether to read it, but you have a choice whether to read my comments and/or respond to them too… so perhaps you need to pull up your skirt and just get the hell over it.

#19 Sy on 03.16.10 at 4:08 pm

Poly:

“I guess the snark police don’t like football.”

Gee…I wonder why? Football is a manly sport that’s played by men.

Poly:

“Fine, I guess as long as I throw in some tits and ass they’d be OK with it.”

Ain’t gonna cut it. T&A appeals only to heterosexual men or lesbians.

Try throwing in some French poetry, faux finishing tips or perhaps some commentary on how bitchy the cheerleaders seem to be or how gaudy their outfits are.

Or you could always follow Eggbert’s lead and fire up some homoerotic anecdotes aimed at religion, family and/or Republicans, that’s always timely and relevant.

#20 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 6:19 pm

Or you could always follow Eggbert’s lead and fire up some homoerotic anecdotes aimed at religion, family and/or Republicans, that’s always timely and relevant.

Eggbert? Nah…now that I’m becoming more attuned to the rules of engagement around here, I suspect I will be more “politically snarky”…like my new favoritist hero in the whole wide world, AG. Notice how “politically snarky” AG is in this zinger. But I’m still tryin to tie in playin with your penis to political snarkiness. Perhaps costner can help fill in the blanks with some french poetry.

https://www.southdacola.com/blog/2009/04/i-cant-stop-playing-with-it/

BTW, and back on topic. Remember a couple years ago when you, the Dude, and myself were going round and round about Big 12 football? Started watching it. I have to admit. It is entertaining. And no AG, I am not talkin about playin with my penis. (snark, snark)

#21 Poly43 on 03.16.10 at 6:28 pm

Sure seems like you get easily offended when people question the quality of your content.

I will lose no sleep over the quality of my content. It is just fine. You replied. I replied in kind. Get over it girly boy.

#22 Costner on 03.17.10 at 6:58 am

Since I can’t read or write or speak French, I wouldn’t know if it is poetry or a menu, but it seems you knuckle dragging, “Back Off” Yosemite Sam mudflap sporting, Budweiser ‘Heavy’ drinking, Campbell Supply underwear shopping ‘real’ men have this silly idea that if you aren’t a huge football fan that you are somehow either female or homosexual.

Yea that makes complete sense… if you’re a raging bigoted asshole.

#23 Angry Guy on 03.17.10 at 7:59 am

I tagged that post as MUSIC & COOL, and threw in a penis joke for good measure. As you rightly point out, that post had no political snark. It was just something simple, yet enthralling that I wanted everyone to experience. I Didn’t post it saying, “Hey Dude, check this out!” and then expect everyone else to skim over it if they didn’t like the title.

Look around. Music is a frequent thread of discussion here that often leads to some pretty great comments. Sports? Not so much.
I never said anything about your posts needing to be ‘politically snarky”. I said your post had no “redeeming South DaCola qualities”, and I stand by my statement.

On a side note, one of these days there is going to be another South DaCola Fest and I predict all of you ass hats I tell to STFU and poke in the eye on a regular basis will team up (or one by one) kick my ass and then buy me drinks once the bleeding stops. Afterwards, we’ll all have gay sex in the Tommyjacks bathroom, am I right Costner?

#24 Sy on 03.17.10 at 8:48 am

Looks like Aunt Flo has paid a visit a little early this month.

#25 Sy on 03.17.10 at 9:49 am

How about we have SDColafest at Ribfest. Think of the endless supply meat-related metaphors we could giggle over. Perhaps L3wis could come up with an incentive to sweeten the deal so we can get everyone there? Maybe give out a free piece of homemade fudge? I bet it’d be packed.

And since Kory and the Fleaflickers won’t be there this year, it’d be a little cruel to kick AG when he’s already down.

#26 Angry Guy on 03.17.10 at 10:26 am

I know.. I’m such a HUGE fan of Kory and the Tweedlebugs. I’ll just have to catch them at the Turner County Fair or some other event where small town bunheads turn out en mass to swill shitty beer and listen to crap rock.

#27 Costner on 03.17.10 at 12:59 pm

I’ve never been to Tommyjacks – but the name implies a fitting location for such a thing I guess.

And Sy – you TOTALLY beat me to the PMS reference. Bastard.

#28 Ghost of Dude on 03.17.10 at 2:33 pm

Ribfest sucks and blows.

It would be better to have a spring SD fest in someone’s back yard where we can have some real BBQ, beer, and music without paying $5 just for the privilege to buy more overpriced, average BBQ.

And Poly, my interest in pro football stops after the guys from OSU who make rosters. I sort of follow Green bay, but only because I lived in Wisconsin for a while.

#29 EggBert on 03.17.10 at 5:55 pm

Dear Polybag34 & Pro Football bloggers:

Now we’re talking…POW! We EggBerts are Ready for some kind of Footballing! On their fantasy footballer teams, Aunt Bertha’s choosin’ Mayor-elect St. Patty Costello, Granny Gumption’s picking Russell Okungilitus, and Creamy Nugent’s selecting either a QB with a Big Benjamin or any QB coppin’ a FEELY! Get over it, liberal, anti-American hippies – Footballdum is what living in the U.S. is all about. Anti-footballdumb? Then you are Anti-Patriot fans. Not a Vikings fan? Then you don’t believe in raping & pillaging of all colors of women. If you don’t like handsome, large, well-endowed Men jumping on each other & fondling each other to get to their huggable beloved nutty, oval-shaped ball sack, then you can go suck on one! Everybody needs a time out from important regional, city, local, county, state, national, world, outerspace news, so let us grab us some weiners, quench our right-wing thirst, and get us some Fantasy POW (POWER of WEENIE) Footballjism Action!

Sincerely,

EggBert & Family of Snarks (WTF???)

#30 Sy on 03.17.10 at 6:13 pm

GoD:

“Ribfest sucks and blows”

Maybe they should hold it at Tommyjacks.

Costner:

“Bastard.”

Are you sure you’re not into college football? You seem like a fan of the Crimsom Tide.

#31 Costner on 03.17.10 at 8:30 pm

I’ll just have to plead ignorance on this one because I don’t even know what that means. If that is meant to be some sort of insult, I guess it is right over the top of my head.

Such is life.
