Third Fake Pre-Game Live Blog

6:00 PM EST
Game begins in two hours.  I'll be here throughout all four, torturous quarters.  Let's get a couple good offensive possessions and defensive holds and get out of Denver without a major injury.

6:22
Re-watching Season 6 of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to pass the next hour and a half.  I'm kinda nervous about a fake game.  Does this mean I've officially lost my fucking mind?

6:31
Larry David's contribution to the television comedy is on par with some of the great artistic achievements in this country's history.  That might sound like an exaggeration but he's responsible for what I think are the two funniest shows of all-time.

6:43
I think the Bears need to call some low-risk, precision passes early in the first quarter.  I can imagine a scenario where Jay Cutler wants to heave the ball fifty yards down the field as a football middle finger to the Mile High fans.  A little play-action to Greg Olsen maybe?

7:03
I'd like an interception tonight.  From anybody.

7:10
Scratch that, I'd like an interception from Nathan Vasher.

7:17
I just finished a large iced coffee and am about to open a pint of coffee ice cream.

7:20
I guess this is how the whole Twitter thing works.  You just list all the things in your head.  I've been doing it for an hour and I'm already bored with my own brain.

7:30
Half hour till football.  And exactly two weeks till we kick off the real season.

7:42
Thinking about the Broncos fan thing.  Don't any of them realize that there is a serious organizational issue happening with that club?  Does anyone think they've made a single sound decision since the end of the 2008 season?

7:50
Ten minutes till kickoff.  Coffee ice cream doesn't taste at all like coffee but it is equally delicious.  I'm beginning to wonder if I don't love the word "coffee" so much that it impairs my ability to soundly judge food products using the word.  I'm also from Jersey and we're often asked to pronounce "coffee" for people because it beautifully discloses our accent.

7:53
Coffee made itself a thing, didn't it?  "What are you doing?  Wanna grab a cup of coffee?"  Why coffee?  Why not lemonade?  Tea has never established that kind of cultural presence in the country.

  • amen and amen

  • First!!!! ....dammit....I missed :(

  • Looking forward to see both Rideau and D.A do enough tonite to make the team

  • oh man those pony fans are gonna be talking shit tonight. I hope our bears will go in there and smack that ass....... I say we trade Devin Hester! lol

  • I have a nervous excitement to see how theses Bears are gonna perform on the road.... should be a good one.... I'm keeping my eye on Olin... Let's see if he can lead this offensive line to 100-150 yrd rushing game...

  • I would imagine there would be a little "lets stomp Cutlers ass" on the defense's mind. Should be fun to see how he avoids any problems. I think Jay made the right call. I would have a hard time working for McDickless. Just something about this guy that my insticts tell me he's an arrogant asshole. Maybe it's just me. Should be fun to watch.

  • Not sure what shows you're referring to, Jeff, but "all time" is a lot of TV.

  • Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    I have them ranked 1,2. With The Honeymooners, All in the Family 3,4.

  • hmmm I'd have to go with Arrested Development and a show to be named later.

  • Arrested is a top ten show. If I include other countries, Fawlty Towers is number 2 behind Seinfeld.

  • Just comedies, Max. The Wire was a lot of things. Not particularly funny.

  • Fawlty Towers definitely makes my top three.

    In other news apparently my mother found and purchased a life sized poster (not fathead but poster) of Nathan Vasher at the Illinois State Fair last week. Not sure why such a thing exists but we now own it. I am told it was cheap. He regains his ballhawk and maybe we can flip it for a profit at the end of the season

  • In reply to Reverenddave:

    Freebie in the Dairy Bldg., Rev.

  • I heard Max's mother did the same thing.

  • GO BEARS!!

  • What in the sam blazes hell was that with Forte throwing the ball? That was a waste of a play.
