    that was funny stuff

    so can you give me another computing lesson?
    if I see something
    lets say a clip from youtube or an article on another site

    instead of Ben franklin' it to a piece of pape,r then typing it into my comment here
    how is able to accomplish this; eliminating, the Ben Franklin from the process?

    let me be clear about this
    I am in no way advocating the elimination of my job;
    although Ben was the founder of it
    i meant eliminating the quill
    and ink, paper part....of the transfer of information

    somehow it seems I am committing harri- carey/ suicide to my future employment with this knowledge I have stumbled upon ;(

  • Happy Friday my fellow Bears enthusiasts!!!

    Are you ready to watch CG blitzing off the edge in Nickel Packages? Are you ready for a 65yd Forte screen for a TD? Are you ready for Peppers to destroy Rivers? Are you ready for Bennett to catch 5 of 5 for 85 and a TD? If the answers are yes to any of these questions then just tune in to the game on sunday and all of your wishes will be granted.

    rivers fucking dead

  • yes

  • I can't wait to stomp the chargers.

  • I wonder how long Tebow can keep winning because do you all not realize how decent the defense is for the broncos?

  • In reply to Artoo:

    jets suck... broncos D is pretty good... tebow and that offense is a toy. We will destroy them.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Williams and Dumerville are a pretty potent combo.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    agree Al

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I have HUGE respect for dawkins... the dude is a(n old) stud.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    No worries mate. Tebow won't be playing against the Philistines when our Boys take em on. Just look at the upcoming match up as an opportunity to properly instruct Tebow on what a good team looks like.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    Im not afraid of Tebow happy for him tho.

  • Repost:

    So if the Colts really do put Peyton Manning on the trade block... what do the Jets offer for him? I think the Cutler trade is probably a fairly good precedent.

    If its me... I trade the #1 pick and keep Peyton if I think he's healthy. You don't bet the farm on one draft pick... Andrew Luck could be the next Peyton Manning, or the next Ryan Leaf. More likely he'll be Sam Bradford - solid QB, but not enough to win by himself. You trade the Luck picks for a first rounder this year and next, plus a couple more on top of that (maybe this year's 2 and next year's 3, maybe even more is someone tries a Ricky Williams). Suddenly you can take Manning's last 3-4 years as a truly dominant QB along with a lot of extra help on both sides of the ball (and maybe pick up a solid rookie QB to apprentice along the way).

    Of course, the Colts have a lousy GM and he'll probably waste the picks.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    If I were GM for a day, 1st I'd fire Caldwell at the end of the season. The guy clearly doesn't have the right stuff. 2nd, I'd hire Green Bay OC Joe Philbin and Draft Luck. 3rd, I'd trade Manning to a team with a QB need for "Several" high draft picks and use them to rebuild. Peyton's value will never be higher but he will probably insist on going to a large market that is a contender.

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    hey GM-for-a-day... why don't you be GM for a team that desperately needs a good one... us.

    What would you do with us?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hmm....good question MB. I guess our situation is so different that I would really have to wait until the end of the season to make any substantial changes. Martz would have to be the first casualty though. The guy is our weak link. When our team has any success on "O", it's because we move away from his philosophy, not towards it. So yeah, I guess my first move would be to fire Martz and bring in an OC that gives his quarterback the flexibility to audible and take over play calling when the situation arises. I think the "shrewd" move would be to wait until the end for further evaluation.

    How'd I do?

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    "end of the season".

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Tough move first huh? third OC in 3 (4?) years for cutty and the WRs... that's rough. I agree with the basis of your assessment, but tough call to disrupt the whole O yet again. You better make sure you have the right guy there finally.

    Players baby.... talk to me about talent. When you're done I'll give you mine (I'm sure you'll be shocked)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'll give you my list below but I have to elaborate on the Martz thing. Our passing game is not what it should be. An effective and productive passing game will buy us some time to replenish our D for the next 2 years. Take away either Peppers, Lach or Tillman due to injury or retirement and we're screwed. No way our O will allow us to compensate for a pourus D.

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Peyton's trade value has never been lower than it is right now.
    A) he's
    B) he's been running his system in Indy for a long, long time
    C) he's coming off of 3(!) neck surgeries in a 1 1/2 year span.
    D) Brett Favre.

    I'm not saying there won't be teams interested, but the number of them that would seriously entertain him as a starting QB next year is precipitously lower than it would have been two years ago.
    And if you're the Jets, would you really take another flyer on a HOF QB coming off of an injury as a plug-in after the failed Favre experiment?
    If you're the Redskins, yeah, you probably do. There is no other franchise that serves as such an effective dumping ground for overpaid, on-the-downslope players as Washington.
    If you're the Dolphins, maybe - your offense is in such shambles (although with talent at WR and RB) that you might as well turn over control to Peyton and let him design his own team for a year.
    If you're Cleveland, you're too far away from contention to even consider this move. You need lots of picks to improve offensive skill positions.
    If you're Seattle, you might pull the trigger on this. You have some obvious standouts on offense and could conceivably contend if you had anything resembling an NFL passing attack.
    If you're Kansas City, you may make more sense with this move than any other team on the list. However, are you remotely interesting to Manning? Probably not.
    Off the top of my head, I can't think of any more teams that would spend more than a passing second considering the trade of multiple first round picks for Manning at this point in time.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Oops, A should be He's 35 years old.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    3 factorial neck surgeries? So then, 6 neck surgeries? I did not know that (In Johnny Carson voice).

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    Maths.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I'd add ...

    E) He's still a choker.

    Ha.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Excellent point.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    That is one LARGE "If"F on Peyton's health currently.

    He's had these neck issues for years, they've already gone in there TWICE recently and the last I heard, the nerves are still not regenerating which has sapped his arm strength.

    I don't see Manning getting traded. Released, yes, but traded with a contract where he's due $28 Million and his health is an issue?

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I think Peyton would agree to restructuring the contract Al. I read somewhere that this has already been discussed with him.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Manning mightn't have ANY years left, so you trade the dude for two firsts and whatever else you can get, draft Luck, rebuild the o-line ....

    ...or ....

    Draft Luck and stick him in A-Rod's role behind Favre.

    Personally I'd go for option #1 and cash-in while the choker is still worth something.

    I only got that Xbox stuff.

    Only because some guy, who isn't me, breaks into my house every few days and illegally downloads movies and TV shows... transfers them to the old USB stick and watches them on my Xbox.

    He's a dirty asshole, and I in no way condone his actions.

    When that Twisted Metal game comes out, I'll have no choice but to pick up a PS3. TM2 was my jam back in 8th grade.

    How's the streaming doing? Will you do it next year?

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    bastard. maybe change the locks, the RIAA is a bitch.

    yeah mang... crystal clear since the opening day debacle. Lovin it. And when you're on the 'home screen' they have a produced kind of show that gives highlights, goes from game to game, has commentary with guests, shows some of the other show segments (fox), etc... It's actually really cool to watch while waiting for the Bears to play. Totally worth the cash, and elimination of the extra stress put on my circulatory system from trying to find a fucking stream that works

    uhhh... I mean, not being able to see the licensed game on TV.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You know who else can't find a fucking stream that works?

    Old men.

    BAM! POW!

    Downloading? Illegally? Breaking and entering too - what a bastard. I know how you feel man. I have a guy that did that recently and he downloaded 'Contagion' and 'In Time' ... using MY internet connection ....cheeky bastard. What was worse, he forced me to watch both movies at gunpoint - they were quite good though I must say and we ended up being firm friends.

  • Worrell's comments on how Toub schemes to put players in positions to be successful are needed throughout the staff. I am optimistic that other parts of the current regime (Marinelli and Tice) understand; note the improvements in the line and the application of more pressure from the defense.

    If Martz comes around, and Lovie can keep the egos in check (something he seems rather good at) many good things could happen.

    Seahawks

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Okay, so that didn't pass as English. Worrell's comments are not needed throughout the staff. *sigh*

  • The dings are starting to mount. Chris Williams gone and no DJ Moore not likely to suit up Sunday.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    There's a lot of reports that Edwin is a better pass blocker than Chris but Chris' pulling will be missed on the outside.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    That's my hope ... Edwin >= Chris. When Carimi gets back, move Lance to LG and Carimi back to RT. Pulling power reinstated. Still want to see Levi our Chief Bear make an appearance at some point.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    I don't think Lance is going anywhere..nor should he be this year.
    That guy has balled out all year at RT; I'm bummed Carimi went down, but it allowed Louis to thrive.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Happy to see Louis stay where he is, and glad Levi will be there ready to step in if somebody else goes down.

    Davis finally has been trained up. Now is not the time.
    Reed is already gone.

    Omlette is toast (I told you, I am en fuego)
    Roy is gone
    Toe is probably kept on
    No way does Jerry give up on Nate
    Swole is gone

    Knox is worth a 4th rounder at best
    Wright is a crumbly mess
    Bowman is worthless on the market
    Roach is one of those guys who just sticks around

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Bell may be expendable because I think we take a running back 2nd or 3rd round. I hope Martz stays as long as the Lovie Era, just for Jays sake.
    I think VIP Swole will work his way into the lineup with Conte before seasons end

  • In reply to EnderWiggin:

    Interesting conjecture... could definitely happen.

    What is interesting is totally Conte has shut up all the doubters on this site. Several seemed rather convinced white guys can't play safety...

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Kellen? Dude's 6'7! And when you're 6'7 ...

    Bell ? We'll be needing RBs methinks. Again, Mikel Leshoure would have been nice.

    Martz. Time served and all that. It took two years to cop himself on, but ...

    Roy? I like 6'3 receivers whether they're any good or not.

    Bowman? Are we deep at corner?

    Pringles/Merriweather - ar we deep at safety? If we draft anymore safeties ....

    Cockroach? We're short on LBs already, no?

    Omelette - get thee hence.

    Knox - whatever.

    Enderle - cut and sign Sage Rosenfels.

  • I call this post - How long can we hide the Pringles?
    Or... do you a girl that can do this:

    Our starting SS is not a SS. He's a washed out FS. His coverage back there, and his brittleness and ability to crumble is the weak spot on our defense. How long before teams try and expose him? Do you think he will make it through the Chargers game?

    His knee scope/scrape must have gone badly.

    He's done until next year.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    debridement is not a fix
    i knew this was never a solution
    it gets terrible results
    this is his second dislocation in a 3-4 year period
    I sense a long rest will be the only way that he has a chance at a future
    i can enquire on how long he was allowed to rest after his first problem; but judging from his college playing time it doesn't
    appear that he was off that long
    my freind at work who tailgated with the carimi's and tices
    was not real positive when I told him about the procedure
    he is an ex baller that has undergone multiple knee surgeries
    his son got his scholarship taken away last summer, his senior year; 'cause he couldn't get big enough for them
    but, he still hangs out with tice jr. and is finishing his business degree....to the detriment to his parents bank account

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    as I thought he started 49 out of a possible 52 games
    there doesn't seem to be much down time on that bad knee

    so; his outlook seems bright
    because he will be out of football for the longest period of his life since maybe........popwarner

    on a sad note
    all the jokes about jews vs. christians
    scribes and pharisies vs. christ
    will have to wait
    until future bears vs. denver games

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    term limits
    right?

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    I'm actually neither for nor against term limits; it would be better if the advantages of incumbency could be undone some other way, but I suspect it's just not possible.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Term limits are the double-edged sword of democracy writ large.

    States that impose them on their representatives in a national body are just asking to get eaten alive. And most states that would even consider it are already at a huge disadvantage due to small populations and low tax bases.
    Seniority is power in nearly all partisan bodies, either via party rules or the de facto coin that you earn as a long-standing member of any organization.
    And frankly, the rules of any organization that continues intact for as long as the US Congress has, are so complex...almost byzantine...that to function effectively, especially in a day and age where events around the globe have impacts on the national body so quickly, you need that experience to be a useful member. You cannot speak intelligently on world affairs and running a subcommittee while you're still figuring out the rules of running your office and how to vote when your majority whip tells you to.

    But, hey, it's better than a dictatorship.

  • Something wrong when Bennett gets fined more for wearing orange shoes than Stafford does for trying to rip DJ Moore's head off.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Yeah but the signal the league sent is meant to discourage brawls. Bad for business kinda thing. Remember, this is a business first.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Bennett's being punished for flaunting rules. They fined him 5K last week and doubled it this week for a repeat offense.

    Stafford gets "mercy" because he's a first-time offender.

    The crime is no fine for Suh's helmet rip.

    No fine for Briggs that I've heard either so that WAS a bogus call for his Megahit on Megatron.

    If I was in charge, Suh and fairley are both just watching this week.

    Call potecting the QBs whatever you want but (and I'm repeating myself) here's the bottom line:

    You aren't happy just tackling a the QB? O.K. , Goons. Here's a couple of weeks off to reconsider that philosophy.

    Why?

    Because the NFL works just FINE without "Thug" Defensive tackles who want to injury the opposing QB every game no matter how talented they may be.

    The NFL does NOT work without talented Quarterbacks.

    If it did, the Bears would have gone to Super Bowls led by the likes of Wil Furrer, Moses Moreno and Chad Hutchinson.

    hopefully tice has polished Levi into a sparkling gem

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    Did you REALLY have to remind us about eggy?

  • Why didn't the Eagles or Lions test the safeties more than they did? Obviously the D line was impactful, but there were opportunities for the opposing QBs to throw it deep and we didn't see much of it at all. NORV Turner should have enough sense to test the Bears last line of defense with guys like Vincent Jackson who I desperately wish was a Chicago Bear.

    By the way after the success early, what happened to the screen pass to Forte? I guess with all of the success in the run game the passing opportunities have gone to WR. During the first few games Forte tore it up receiving, and in the last few he has been used primarily in the running game.

    Anyway this game should be damn good. I can't wait for the Henry Tuna Melt sandwich with Peppers Jack cheese come Sunday.

    I hate being sick go bears.

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Glad to see ya back Murph. Vick is going to keep breaking down more often and for longer periods. He's not that big of a guy and he takes some nasty shots. Tebow is quite a bit bigger but he will get hurt at some point. There's a reason RB's usually have such short careers. I can't imagine what that pounding must feel like.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    a bit of bear history:
    I heard or read that Tim Tebow was compared to the legendary Bears QB Bobby Douglass
    well I don't know about Tim's durability
    but, in my day this was one bizarre move by the Bears brass
    and I remember as a youth wondering WTF
    but, I was pulling for success; trying to be positive

    well in light of the Penn State debacle
    this probrably would not be condoned
    as an acceptible approach
    it did seem "Odd" at the time

    Douglass, at 6-4, 225, was a big guy with a strong arm. Too strong, said most of his receivers; they kept complaining they'd get open and he'd overthrow them anyway. Coach Jim Dooley and his successor, Abe Gibron, had no idea what to do with him. Big and strong, he was eager to learn but failed to mind any of his lessons. At one point Dooley actually had Douglass, then a bachelor, move into his house during the season so he could better absorb his teaching. It didn't work; in 1971 Douglass threw five TD passes -- and 15 interceptions.

    Bears management thought up wilder schemes; they considered making Douglass a tight end (presaging a similar idea which they tried, and failed, with a future QB who also wore #10, Kordell Stewart). They actually considered changing their helmet color to orange, so Douglass could better spot his receivers. That didn't happen, but it was during Douglass' tenure at QB when the Bears put the orange "C" within the white "C" that had been the helmet logo before the early 1970's

    maybe the orange shoes are actually helping Jay's recognition
    of his favorite go to
    the now stylish "BENNETTON"
    or as detroit likes to now call him
    "BENNETRON"

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Holy Shit HB, that may just be the greatest nickname ever. We have to have GP make up a design. I want that fucking shirt right now.

    LONG LIVE BENNETRON!!!!!!

    First let me say that the Bennetton reference was priceless and then you followed it up with a sick nickname. I'm voting that last paragraph as post of the year.

  • i am not takin credit for the body of that post it was a copy/ paste practice run
    but I am sure; that i have been more entertained by the other posters here than the stuff that runs through this coconut
    i happen to love it when Irish dusts the board with his twighlight zone "crapping" all over the thread;
    he is like the old alley dog that wanders through his turf marking the perimeter and checkin' out the status before he settles his tired ass down.
    I still can't get the one about the foot massage and corns outta my head
    I'm votin that post of the year

    remember I am just a rookie;
    who doesn't like being singled out one way or another

    I try to make people laugh and am gettin' better at the football knowledge

    being thanksgiving week
    I will just say I am thankfull for everyones humor and expertise

  • i was listening to thayer and mayers weekly show
    they talked about the 3-4 defense we are going against
    and the ability of the O-line to get more of a running start on the defense because there won't be a body across from every lineman.

    will martz revert back to blocking with only the minimum
    and try to get into a passing shootout?

    I also heard them say that webb's job might be a bit tougher as he will be next to a new williams at guard; but they did say that they did not think edwin will be any less athletic than chris; which should not cause them to scale back their scheme any.

    it is ironic that both teams have had huge losses in the O-line
    going into this game
    I wonder if pep will line up to take advantage of their new replacements
    the coaches seem high on Edwin
    let's hope Ed can "win" his coming battle in the trenches

  • Are you ready for this MB? It's begun just like I said it would after we ho slapped the Lions.

    Now that in a four-week span the Bears have gone from "horrible" to arguably "the most feared team" in the NFC -- if not the entire NFL -- why is the praise for Angelo so silent? I can't hear it. Can you?

    Yes gents, the anti-sports channel is now officially on the band wagon. They can't ignore Da Bears any longer. The Bears have officially silenced their critics.

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    did you have to mention jerry
    here is a reporter with his nose up the JA-hole

    Angelo not only struck gold with 2008 second-round pick Matt Forte, but he’s getting the maximum return on his investment with his gutsy, perhaps risky, but certainly deft handling of Forte’s request for a contract extension. And Angelo always will be the guy who drafted Devin Hester, the greatest kick returner in NFL history

    Trac, I don't like people on our bandwagon but these boys deserve it and I am looking for a strong performance and solid victory against the Chargers.

    I do find it funny though that teams are always considered dangerous or better than their record....until the Bears beat them and then you hear things like, "well, apparently the Eagles and Lions aren't as good as we previously thought." I call bullshit. Pundits always want to discount the Bears chances until we fucking roll dudes and then shit gets crazy.

    Look for a monster game from Pep and solid production from Okoye. I predict a Corey Graham coming out party at nickel. Bennett 5/5 for 85 and a TD. Forte screen pass TD, Cutty 17/25 212yds 1 TD 0 INT, 101 passer rating.
    Clutts blowing shit up and just general abuse of the middle of the field without the Chargers MLB.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I picked up a swedish au pair who is 20. I'm sure she has enough experience and will do a fine job. Didn't check the resume but my gut said yes.

  • ...and by gut you mean balls.

  • In reply to Shady:

    my girl stays home and i attempt to bring home bacon. Sadly there will be no au pair at the Waffle house this year.

    2 Grandma's and a shitload of cousins, aunts, uncles and in-laws to help though. that's how we Irish roll down on the southside of the city.

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    I need to go back and watch the last few episodes of "The League".
    Au pairs - trouble.

  • just heard Timmy Jennings miced up on NFL Network. Dude sounds like a 15 year old kid... but he's a bad ass. Love me some timmy J this year. Awesome.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jennings has stepped up. Solid.

    I wasn't planning on posting anything until Monday but then mom and baby fell asleep for the past 3 hrs so i found the computer room at the hospital.

    I wonder if i can look up bike porn on this computer.

  • check my question above maing. Also, I think it's time for a name change.

    How about something like, "Bloggin from the baby trama center in the hospital... bitches!"

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I was thinking more of a DJ or Briggs name.

    OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! (think rampage)

    I likery!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    these are the stats that make martz do his martz thing with the limited protection
    hope he is not visiting the same statistics sites you are usin'

    this better be an exercise in fundamentally sound
    mistake free football
    as it should be until christmas

    everybody on our team should be trying to clean up their technique
    cause we will need to be flawless to slay the Vampire

  • Johnny, congrats. Hope mama and son recover quickly (but not too quickly, it's great to have you blogging from the hospital). Glad both are healthy. bike porn=thefixfixfix.com. Not very dirty, no matter what Doc's wife says.

    MBP, now THAT was a smackdown.

    MB, totally agree about Jennings. He's one of the best tacklers on the D. Tons of heart.

    HB, loved the Douglass stuff. He was hard to watch. His best football was after he threw an INT. He was usually the guy that knocked down the intercepter. They should have made him a LB. He had no instincts for offense (or talent).

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    ouch!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    i was thinkin' he could play both ways
    LB and FB
    he could make a ball spiral;
    but he looked like a video game character that was tryin' to destroy all the players on the field; including his own
    when he would wind up and throw that laser to a back or tight end that was 5 yards away
    he had no touch at all
    i loved it when he would get abe gibron's face all twisted up

  • Injury update: Moore, who sprained his ankle during Wednesday's practice, was listed as doubtful on the injury report and won't play against the Chargers Sunday. Corey Graham will replace Moore as the starting nickel back.

    Moore had some swelling, but the injury is not expected to keep him sidelined long.

    Briggs (neck), Forte (shoulder), Devin Hester (ankle) and Julius Peppers (knee) are all probable, and all four had full participation in Friday's practice.

    For the Chargers, defensive end Luis Castillo (tibia), receiver Malcom Floyd (hip), tackle Marcus McNeill (neck) and linebacker Shaun Phillips (foot) all were ruled out, while guard Louis Vasquez (ankle), guard Tyronne Green (hand) and cornerback Marcus Gilchrist (hamstring) are doubtful. Ex-Bear defensive tackle Antonio Garay (hip) and safety Darrell Stuckey (thigh) are questionable.

  • I dunno, there's something about Phil Rivers I just want to punch him in the face.

  • In reply to Shady:

    His face makes me want to punch his face.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yeah thats it. Right in the face!

  • Oh gawd. I think I just found the reason to back away from playing fantasy football. You've gotta check this dude out giving espn's fantasy rundown. Am I a geek too?

  • TheFifth/Doc, reminders to you to get your Pick'Em league picks in. Also, hey if you want to add me on FB (or any of the rest of you: Irish, Ender, DYL) let me know. I can make an FB group to send out reminders or talk league shit instead of spamming here every week.

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Really? FB? and give away my cloak of perceived e-penis and anonymity? Avast!

    I wouldn't be against it likes, but I tend to get my picks in early anyhow.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Haha, yeah I know what you mean.... Up to you guys. Mostly I want it to for shit-talkin' and the like, or just chattin'. The "message board" in the league software sucks balls and nobody even knows when someone posts there.

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Yeah I've noticed the chat in the 'message board', albeit about a week after the original post date so I tend to stay away. Well I guess I'd be up to it of others were. Shocks could be in order methinks.

  • In reply to Michael L:

    I'd be up for FB smack talk. Weird that your pick'em league won't let me throw an email your way, or at least send a private message.

  • Jeff, who performed the song you used between the Cameron Worrell interview and the beginning of the picks segment? TIA...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Song is, I think, the Handsome Cabin Boy.

    Here's a version, although it helps not to answer your question:

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    And while I'm at it, a little from perhaps the more underrated guitar pickers ever...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOiSdQldrmc&feature=related

    I remember a show he did in Champaign during the "Shut up 'n Play Yer Guitar" days. The band came out in black leather and Frank kicked ass. He would just make up shit like that as he went.

    I sure hope some of ya'll had a chance to see FZ - a unique talent... you never knew quite what you were going to get at those shows.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    You lucky bastard Dave! Frank is totally underrated as a guitarist. When I was younger I thought of him as kind of a novelty, just a funny lyricist...then a friend gave me "Shut Up" and a bunch of other Zappa albums.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    i used to paint houses in the summer for cash to get my degree
    and I hired this high school kid who would sing all of the mothers of invention songs to me all afternoon while we were hangin' off the ladders
    I miss that boy
    he was on the same cloud as frank

    thanks for the bedtime lullabye dave

    Just posted these in last week's Saturday show column by mistake. That's possibly worth a flag for a late hit, but I'm still fired up over the Lions game so its okay.

  • there are some great athletes coming into the NFL
    I just watched 2 young recievers for USC; lee and woods
    destroy the ducks secondary and kick them out of the BCS picture
    and forget about Mr.Luck
    I just saw the Baylor Bear, Robert Griffen III blow up Oklahoma for 479 yards passing
    and he also gained 79 yards on the ground
    he is a gifted athlete; that just gave the Bears their 1st ever win against Oklahoma
    I haven't seen a performance like that in a long time
    wow

    'lotta upsets in college this weekend
    I hope our bears are primed for team with nothin' to lose
    the chargers seem to be in a mode this year of turning the ball over; and their offensive line is weakened by injury
    but, this is no time for complacency
    and chop lickin'
    we still gtota earn our way into the backfield
    and they aren't just gonna give us the ball without supreme effort

    keep november clean and play your hearts out Bears
