Audibles From the Lockout Snapper

A Sad Story About My Fandom

I have a $200 Delta voucher that is burning a hole in my pocket.  In normal years, in any other of the past ten years, I would already have booked a weekend in Chicago.  But I can't.  So I spent the entire morning looking for flights to the New York Red Bulls (yes, kid, me love the futbol) opposing cities in September and October.  I wonder how much revenue the city of Chicago - the hotels, restaurants, bars, tourist attractions - is losing with each day this lockout continues.  There's a piece that should appear in the dailies.
Joe Theismann Defends Jay Cutler
Here's the article.  Who cares?
Santana Moss Rumors?  Really?
PFT picked up on a Larry Mayer mailbag item - proof that the football media world is desperate for anything to write about - stating the Bears might be interested in acquiring the services of Santana Moss.  Mayer writes glowingly of Moss and then says:
"I see no reason why the Bears wouldn't at least consider taking a look at him unless they feel he's too similar in size, stature and style to receivers such as Johnny Knox and Devin Hester who are already on their roster."  
What would give you that impression, Larry?  The fact that all three are the exact same player!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm not going to write anymore "The Bears Should Sign Sidney Rice" columns because it's a complete no-brainer and if the team doesn't recognize that, fine.
Lockout Update!
They're all still dicks.

  • You didn't come here, because the Bears aren't in camp? I'm confused. You would have gone to Bourbonnais, but now you are going to the Big Apple?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Oh wait, it would have been for September. So, because you are not sure there will be any post-Labor Day football, you hedged and booked travel for a soccer game in New York.

    Still confusing. We have a MLS team, as well. But, okay.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    He's not going to New York, he is going to an opposing city that his New York team plays in. Maybe the NY team doesn't play the fire in Sep. or Oct

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Even if they don't play you can come and spend a weekend drinkin and eatin. Then ALL THE Chicago DBB's can come and hang out

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I live in New York. And I was talking about for the season. I usually book a week in December. I like Chicago at its coldest. But I'm too pissed off to do that.

    How strange.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    Predictions for tonight's game? Heat or Mavs?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    If LBJ doesn't check-out by half, Heat.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Jeff, I don't know how you have the ability to keep logging in and adding new columns. Seriously, I would totally understand if I checked in on this blog in the near future and simply saw a post with a sign that said "Gone Fishin'", because that's about where my interest of NFL football is at this point. I'm just looking forward to watching Ohio State eat a big fat shit sandwich for the forseeable future. Hate me some Buckeyes!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    For real?

  • In reply to MattySouthside:

    If you hate them now, you should have seen them under Woody Hayes. Probablly the least likable coach ever. He made Bobby Knight look like a new-age guru. My dad took me to an Iowa vs Ohio State game in the early to mid 60's. Iowa was horrible and OSU was top ten. Iowa was ahead until the end of a low scoring game when OSU caught a couple of lucky breaks and squeeked out a win in the last minute. A heartbreaking loss for the Hawkeyes. The Iowa coach ran across the field to shake Woody's hand and that asshole waved him off and wouldn't shake hands.

    Years later when Woody went nuts in the Rose Bowl and attacked a player from the other team when he came crashing into the sidelines, my dad and I both almost had orgasms. We both knew he was an ex-coach at that moment. What a fucking asshole!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Bo hated Woody, despite mentoring under him

  • In reply to gpldan:

    My dad told me that the Iowa coach in the 50's, Forest Evesheski (sp?), flattened Woody at a Big 10 coaches meeting.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    sweet

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    confronted my first punk kid that i caught knocking over everyones garbage cans and throwing the garbage everywhere. Kid had no respect after i caught him red handed. Needless to say i lost my temper after the kid asked, "is that all?" to my request that he not do it again. I followed up with an angry snarl that i was about to stomp his fucking head in in front of his little whore girlfriend. He promptly took off running like a fairy with his faggot Bieber haircut flowing in the wind.

    I wonder if i have a war of attrition on my hands now. I don't want to do anything stupid if they fuck with my neighbors or my house so any advice is appreciated. i'm too pretty for prison.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Either call the cops or if you know any kids in the neighborhood, have them trounce the little bastard. I'm guessing you won't see much of him.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Might be the best approach Canada. Not the cops, the kids.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Yeah, you're fucked... unless he is as big a pussy as it sounds.

    If not, you're going to have to deal with him one way or another. IFF he does anything more to your place, the grown up thing to do would be to catch it on camera and give it to the cops. If you want to go school-for-scoundrells, I suggest finding out where he lives (watch and follow him home) and start doing the exact same thing to his house that he does to yours. He'll get the picture quickly.

    Or you could go all Gran Torino and go out in a blaze of glory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waNhD1Z23M8

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    If you stomp him, (as he so RICHLY deserves) you end up having to defend yourself from assault charges and probably civil litigation from some self-righteous mommy or daddy.

    Instead, find out where HE lives, keave garbage and dogcrap strewn all over HIS residence (and any vehicles that may be parked outside) with an anonymous note for his parent(s)/ guardian(s)/ keeper(s) explaining why the trash & crap were left. When HIS behavior becomes a problem for THEM, they'll do something about him.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Don't count on it Waffle. The world is full of the "my kid wouldnt do it" parents. Kids arent at all afraid of you or any adults. They know we can't do shit and even if you call the cops nothing of consequence is going to happen to them. When I was young I was afraind of the guy that6 would grab me and smack me and more afraid of my Dad if that guy grabbed me and walked me to my house to tell the old boy what I did.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    When I was a 8 or 9 some friends of mine and I jumped the fence to sneak into the fair. Some dude caught us and stuck a silver colt 45 in our faces and told us to never come back. It worked, we never ever went to the fair again. That guy would have gotten arrested if he did that today Murph.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Just read the MBP article. That is one strange, confused dude. Confused as in he's not too sure of his sexual orientation. On one post he's lamenting the "immorality" of this Bieber guy and in the next post he's praising Newt Gingrich. Gingrich is a scum who cheated on and left his 1st wife when she had cancer and cheated on his second wife.

    Glenn Beck is definitely a head case. I don't get how people fall his messianic schtick. His show is more appropriate for the 700 club. Another total schmuck is Ed Schultz. He's a very contemptible person. One of my best friends used to work with him at a radio station in Fargo where Schultz was a right-wing firebrand at that time. He was like the Rush Limbaugh of Fargo. He was a prick to everyone and beat his wife all the time. She was a local news anchor, and missed 18 days of work after one of the beatings. A real class act.

    How's about a new post concentrating on favorite moments from last season? Personally, I could watch that Minny road game over and over. Hester nearly broke a kickoff, then he did break a punt for the record. Then Woot Woot pimp slammed Fav Rah as if he were Ike Turner, ending his career. That was a ball game my friends.

    Side note, i'm heading out of town for another bachelor party this weekend. So prepare yourself for some cock tails....

    Green Bay at Chicago, the first meeting, Don't kick the ball to Hester!

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    True story.. i had about 15 people over for that game including an Australian couch surfer who was really trying hard to figure out the sport. I had the big screen set up in the backyard and Tv's throughout the house playing the game. When we won I grabbed my Bears glag off my porch and ran up and down my block screaming for joy. I'm pretty sure the Auzie thought we were all nuts

    All is love, is all I am
    A ball is all I am
    I'm so new compared to you
    And I am very small

    Warm glow, moon bloom
    Always need a little more room
    Waiting here seems like years
    Never seen the light of day

    All around I hear strange sounds
    Come gurgling in my ear
    Red the light and dark the night
    I feel my dawn is near

    Warm glow, moon bloom
    Always need a little more room
    Whisper low, here I go
    I will see the sunshine show

    Mercifully, it is short

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I love all the Floyd, but my favorite stuff is the older music. Obscured, Saucer, Meddle, the Pompeii Days.
    It reminds me of one of my favorite tripping stories. Me, my brother, and a friend are camping at an isolated lake in Upper Michigan. No running water, electricity, bathrooms. There's one other person staying at the campground, Toyvil, and he's on the far other side. He was living at the campground for the summer and helping build log cabins in the area. He only had one good arm due to polio I suspect. He was one hell of a wood carver, and Indians from the local reservation came out several times during the week and he taught them how to make carvings.
    So on to the trip. After we drop, about an hour in, just starting to feel it, he comes back from work and comes to talk to us. He tells us his boss ran over the head of a big pine snake, and he wants to make a belt. He tells me, "your a colly student, you can figure out how to skin this snake for me." We go over by his site, and he has a 4-4.5 foot long pine snake still moving, but the head was ran over so it was dead. I figured out, while trippin balls, it was not that hard to do. Cut off the head, slit the belly , and peel off the skin. I got to keep the tail. Still have it. After peeling off the skin, the snake was still slithering around. We all held it, watching it move around, with no skin. It was the best science lab ever. You could see the "ribs" moving along the spine as it slithered in your hands.
    Then we went fishing and caught some Northern Pike for Toyvil to cook up for us. After that, we threw on some Saucerful of Secrets really loud and went exploring. We walked out on this huge pine log over the water and watched a big spider make it's web, then went nightcrawler hunting. It was a good time. We had a massive bonfire going at the time.
    A little or a long time later, Toyvil stops by with a pistol is his back pocket, because this huge raccoon keeps getting into his garbage. We decide to play some cribbage. During this time, that huge raccoon shows up. We tried to distract Toy, but he caught on, and unloads the pistol at the damn animal at about 20 feet and misses. The whole night was old school Floyd, not much memorable after that. Just hanging out and building the fire. We probably burned about a cord and a half or two cords of wood that night. It was a great fire. Doc, here's a good old version of Embryo that a friend posted on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0XZfEskNNw

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Classic story Cor. I don't know if I would have handled a dead slithering inside out snake nearly as well as you did, in that situation. And then gunshots?! Christ.

    I'm sad to say I've never tripped to Floyd. Not really anyway. For some reason, most of my A-hole friends don't appreciate Floyd the way I do. They're fools if you ask me. And I usually do stuff like that with friends. I'm with you on the old Floyd vs. New Floyd though. The only exception I would make would be Animals. It's just a personal favorite of mine. I love long rocking songs with lots of parts. That album is my all time favorite whilst driving at night whilst also stoned. Never gets old. Love that shit.

    The first Floyd album I ever heard was, believe it or not, Delicate Sounds of Thunder. I loved it. Then came The Wall. Loved it. Then when I was 19 I was getting my first tattoo. A bears tattoo. The tattoo artist and I were talking about Floyd and he made it clear that I didn't know Floyd until I listened to old Floyd. I promptly went to the used record store where I found a box set really cheap. Started from the first album. By the time I got to Meddle, my mind was blown. They've been my favorite band ever since. Though I admit, I don't listen to 'em much anymore.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Me and my brother used to listen to Animals and Wish you were Here on a double sided tape all the time in our bedroom while studying stoned most of the time. I'm a music pusher. Check out some Gov't Mule.

    If that is the case...then we are going after Jenkins and Aspellmynamaga, because that is the only way we will win games with no one blocking or catching passes from Jay "my knee is better for now" Cutler.

    I think I have nerve damage in my big toe from that game, but it was an experience of a lifetime.
    Turns out one of the guys I work with (big sales honcho) was across the stadium from me in a luxury box - dead level with my seats. Of course, he is a Vikings fan, so he was absolutely miserable, while my soaked-to-the-bone group of Bears fans was on cloud nine.

    The boys gettin together to toss the ole' pigskin around. I can't wait until we use Forte from game 1 like we did in the last half of the season last year. I predict 75 receptions for at least 700 yards out of Forte.
    Martz knows Bennett doesn't drop shit so look for plenty of looks on 2nd and 3rd downs for him.
    Taylor looks to be healthy from his knee injury, Cutty was literally blown back to health by his hot fiance, Olsen improved as an overall player by a ton last year and Ginny is slowly reaching her old rotted flesh arm into her 1950's purse that smells like Ben Gay and cats and is pulling out the checkbook for a tallish african american receiver with the ability to bring in about 1200 yards this season.

    I guess winning a championship, even in the NBA, isn't as easy as just signing on the dotted line with the perceived favorite.

    The sight of you and Wade and Bosh sitting on stage at your excesive, self-aggrandizing, totally BS, welcoming extravaganaza in Miami and laughingly ticking off yet-to-be-won NBA Titles "...5...6..7..8..." as if you just had to show up and claim them like a lottery prize was insultingly presumptuous.

    So, they didn't have mediums, but when I saw the Johnny Pax version, I had to step up. Thankfully, the "throwback" jerseys are of a MUCH higher quality. Actual dual layered perforated mesh, not the thin shimmery crap my new D. Rose jersey is made of. Same price.

Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    So the articles said that Major Wright is a fixture on the South Beach party scene. Probably rolls with his Gator posse, and I'm not sure that bodes well for his Bears career. Too much hooch and nightclubs, not enough prep work.

    As it was, he pulled up lame running down that little Lions zippy PR they got - and missed a few games. Shit like that is pure training issue. No safety in the NFL should yank his hammy out like that running full speed by the middle of a season if they put in the work.

    A: Well, a pulled hamstring in the preseason landed Unga on the injured reserve (the Bears effectively hid him there). So that's why you haven't heard much about him. But I'll tell you that the Bears are extremely excited about Unga's potential in terms of his power and versatility. Running backs coach Tim Spencer said that Unga will have to earn his way into the backfield rotation by showing his stuff on special teams. So Unga appears to be in line to become the team's No. 3 running back, and I wouldn't count him out as a potential short-yardage option that might push Chester Taylor for that role.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/breaking/chi-wendys-to-sell-off-arbys-20110613,0,633522.story

    How can i guarantee that Arby's will maintain the quality Rohst Bief sandwiches with Horsey Sauce that we've come to expect from such a venerable establishment if it is owned by some private equity firm. you know that Roark probably conspired with Indy Mac, Countrywide, New Century, Ameriquest, etc to give everyone subprime high margin ARM's with prepayment penalties just so the ratings agencies would fraudulently overrate(for pay) the SIV's, CDO's and other various derivative based investments as AAA rated securities which would artificially bolster the rate of return of historically low rate low risk investments. Then i'm sure they lobbied to maintain the less than acceptable regulation of said derivatives starting back in the late 80's early 90's so that by the time the global financial system had been paralyzed as all of the home values crashed along with the assets that collateralized them they could just walk right in and purchase fucking ARBYS for a paltry 130 million??? Justin Bieber could buy the entire franchise in less than 2.5 years at that price. The damn curly fry recipe alone is worth at least 50 million.

    With La Buff as the put upon Arby's CEO, trying to stalwart against the pinched margins of the beef council, who pressure him to add more wax to that mix, but he refuses to give up and instead says "I will not add that wax! I will wax eloquent on the need for taste! Indeed sir, show ME the beef!"

    Crowd goes nuts. Populist sentiment wins in the end, when Packers fans unite to purchase Arby's in the collective, as they did with the team.

    We get it....the old time players got brutalized. We don't need to study the brains of dudes who played decades ago. We need to focus on technology and methods to reduce the impact on the next generation. I am sympathetic but to look at an 81yr old's brain won't do any good. Let's look at young adults that die in highschool and college/pros. that is where the most info can come from. If we find out that kids in their teens show signs of it just from playing highschool and college ball then that is important. It is a given that the old timers have CTE that played with full on concussions.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    i think the league needs to address the old timers medical problems and help them out. I just don't know what an 81yr old brain could tell us from a guy that played during a time so drastically different style, rule and equipment wise compared to that of say a Chris Henry type who had it at 23. We know what it does and we know these old guys have it. Shouldn't we focus on the science of it in the context of where we are today with the game?

    dude, you have the most german name of all time.

    Also, I think Ocho would bring some fucking swagger in here. TO is a cancer and doesn't care if he gets the ball winning or losing. Ocho just wants to fucking win and knows he can't do it in Cincy. He had 1 year where he was problem. I wouldn't mind seeing him come in. Ocho, Bennett, Olson, Knox and Hester??? That's a #1 receiver, a go to possession guy, a pass catching tight end that creates matchup problems, a deep threat and the greatest kick returner of all time who we need to get the ball as he is crossing the whole field underneath.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Ocho is barely outperforming Hester as a wide receiver at this point, and that's been a trend for the last three years.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    he has one big catch and alot of injuries and mediocre seasons, just got out of a 3yr stretch and is 34yrs old.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    since 2002, every year Ocho plays 16 games he has over 1,000 yards with most years in the 1300 range. He had over 830 last year in 14 games.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Trust me, I think they both suck at this point. Ocho would have been nice four or five years ago. He would be a mega-bust here. Plax is probably going to flame out as well; I can't see him doing much this year, particularly with the short off-season.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Plax has been in jail, he's not suddenly capable of being an NFL receiver and has to learn a playbook anyway. Plax is no option when T.O. and Randy Moss are fit and well and haven't been in jail for two years. I don't see how having either of those boys doesn't make us a way better football team.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    T.O. over Ocho any day of the week - T.O. wouldn't be a problem in the Chicago locker room ... he'd be our main man and he'd have a QB that can get him the ball - maybe we win the superbowl last year if he's on our team. We need a field stretcher, not a six foot mouth. My $0.02.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    have the civil union money come in AND the NFL money. Stop being a tard.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    And the NFL is completely capable of hosting the Pro Bowl wherever they want without demanding a payoff from the host site. What's retarded is public financing for industries that are fully capable of paying their own way, and franchises holding their fan-bases hostage in the pursuit of no-capital-expenditure revenue streams. THAT is retarded.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    i was telling the governor to stop being a tard btw.
    the pro bowl is a luxury for a state to host because of the revenue that comes in from it. That is why the nfl can choose where they want to have it from their many suitors. how are franchises holding their fan bases hostage? the states don't have to pony up for the privilege of hosting the game but most see the huge monetary benefit to it and that's why they enter the sweepstakes.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    No worries, I wouldn't call you a tard either.
    What I was referring to by "holding hostage" are the constant requests for public financing on stadium deals, tax deferments/credits, or "else we move to Los Angeles".
    Guys like Red McCombs believe the public should cover EVERY red cent of a stadium project, but then turn over revenue to the operator (the franchise).

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Lockout Snapper sounds tight.....oooooh yeah

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I find it hard to believe that the state is generating more than $4 million extra in tax revenue from the presence of the Pro Bowl.
    The NFL article projected a $3 million boost in tax revenue, which is almost certainly wildly optimistic given who came up with them.
    So, no, the kids don't still get the money, and the State of Hawaii is out net $1 million annually to host a flag football game.
    Aside from that, I would imagine the $4 million for education has much larger long-term multiplier effect on the economy than some short-term receipts increase (if it even existed in the first place).

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    but what about the 28million in revenue generated in one or two weeks?
    I gladly spend a net of 1 million dollars to net my state over 20. Then the civil union money can come in, then they can reduce other costly spending and earmark a little more for the kids. what's the issue?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    MBP - Hawaii has mini bar high tax rates. They absolutely can generate that much revenue. The taxes are high as balls. Child Please!

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Sorry, Waffle - that's just bullshit. COSTS are high in Hawaii on everything. The tax rate on services and goods is not particularly high, especially compared to Illinois.
    The point, again, is why the State of Hawaii should be paying out a net loss in tax receipts to host the game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    why would you compare it to IL though? we may have the highest tax rates in the nation. The point is that considerable tax revenue is generated. if companies bring in 24+ million how is it ridciulous to think that 3 million in tax revenue could be generated?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    the answer to the tax net loss tax question is simple: to bring in 24+ million in business revenue.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    The Department of Tourism in Hawaii estimates an additional $3m in revenue, that's where I got it. A specious claim from the get-go.
    And where IL suffers in SPECIFIC sales tax areas, it outranks Hawaii in others. My point was, Hawaii is not even -close- to having the highest sales tax rate in the country. Shit, in NE, it's around 7...and we're a red state.
    There is no reason the taxpayers should be paying $1 million+ a year for the Pro Bowl, regardless of where it is hosted.
    You're also talking about a tourism industry that generates $11 billion a year already in the State. The Pro Bowl is hardly a gnat in the soup, so I don't think the NFL is bargaining from a position of strength on this. It is more than likely going to work to negotiate the fee down substantially, or eliminate it altogether.
