  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's not fucking racist, d00d. Look up Malawi on the map. It's about 250 miles from Mogadishu. Shit done got real.

    I'm not worried, though, bro. I always knew the rev was CIA.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Im thinking your sense of scale may be a little off, but without referring to a map i suppose someplace in a country in northeast africa could be within 250 miles of east central africa....

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    OK, um... did I say 250? I meant 2500. Oops! Still, though. Scary!

    Whoops. Didn't mean to take you to the shed over a typo.

    I'm just covering sub-Saharan Africa in one of my classes now and hitting the topic of colonialism and neo-colonialism (and Orientalism) now. I show a clip of an ABC news segment discussing a "growing problem in Africa," and they only once, very quickly even mention which country. In other words, Africa is all the same. Like in Sarah Palin's head.

    TIA

  • In reply to gpldan:

    common man, you know I was a keeeed.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Try more like 2000 miles. Completely different countries & cultures.

    So yeah, a little ignorant, a little racist. In the "they're not like us, so they're all alike" vein.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Of all freshwater fish tank fish, the Lake Malawi fish tank fish are the best fish tank fish.

    CICHLIDS FO LIFE!

  • 1. I'm listening to the rant on the new site and commenting here. hee hee

    2. What in THEE fuck are you moving to Malawi for Dave?!!?!? Are you a missionary... which would damn well baffle me, but whatevs.

    3. The music you're playing is Lady Blacksmith Mambazo... from my (and Trac's) home nation of South Africa maings.

    Malawi actually has a very well known and respected music history and tradition... and 'genre' of it's own music. Here's a sample of the traditional twangy 'guitar' style: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gv5FusWDeHY

    I know, more than you wanted to know, but I'm kinda into it so thought I'd share.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I think you'll like this song MB. What do they call that clicking sound when singing?

  • In reply to Cormonster:

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    nice corm. Thanks.

    I think the scientific term is, "that clicking sound"

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Haha, nice. Graceland is one of my all time favorite albums.

  • You guys will love this: when asked who his favorite Bears player of all time is, Phil Emery responds, "Brian Urlacher." Classic.

  • In reply to Viva:

    The reporter then gave him a follow up question:

    "How about your favorite song, Phil?"
    "Isn't it Ironic? by Alanis Morissette."

  • In reply to Viva:

    Comment From Brent
    Was curious on your philosophy on scouting and drafting. Best player available or biggest team need?

    Phil Emery: It's always a combination of both. You want to get a player who you feel has dynamic athletic ability and will improve the chances to win championships. You can't totally ignore needs to simply go after the best player, because if you do, you won't be able to build the best roster possible to put you in position to win championships

    Boom!

  • In reply to Viva:

    90% of what he said was a political type answer designed to avoid actually answering the question. What a waste of time.

  • same when asked about conte's performance. I actually laughed when I read his response to that question.

  • In reply to Viva:

    How was he to know Brian would act like a two year old when it came to negotiating a new deal?

  • I was going to hope for blog points by ,entioning habib koite, but he' s from Mali, not MalAWI.... sigh...

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    That's gotta be atleast +1 blog points in my opinion.

  • Mb -

  • When it comes to gratuitus booty shaking music videos, this one is still my favorite:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbstA0YvSK0

    Let's be honest though, it's really just prono with some hip hop in the background.

  • In reply to Shady:

    "I make that pussy whistle like the old spice man"

    Sheer brilliance.

    I'll go the other way and recall one of yonnys favs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YLy4j8EZIk

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    SNACK! SNACK! SNACK! CRUNCH!

    SNACK! SNACK! SNACK! MUNCH!

  • In reply to Shady:

    Hahahahaha... exactly.

    You video is mesmerizing. My new goal is to reenact that video in my bedroom. (I keeed I keeeeed... kind of)

  • Since it's a Thurs Night Game, had to write the preview earlier.

    Check it out whenevs.

  • Nice.

  • nice read maings. thanks.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Thanks, fellers.

    What say ye? Pepp to DT 80%? I think GP brought it up in another thread, and I was thinking the same (actually, since last year, but Pepp surprised me a bit).

    For this game, I don't think we have to worry much about the Gmen gashing us with the run, so a lot more of Shea wouldn't be too much of a liability.

    But going forward, I don't know. I shudder to think what a team with a real HB would do to Shea. Peterson and Alf are still in the cards, as well as Bush and Eddie Lacey to a smaller extent.

    Someone's gotta step up inside. Maybe bring back the big fat DT in the mold of Ted Washington and Tractor Traylor.

  • Sigh.

    Ted and The Tractor.

    Urlacher roamed free and devasted offenses when THOSE two tanks anchored the D-line.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Yup. I miss those days.

  • Julio out for the year in "notlanta". Hee hee.

    Didn't the pretty much mortgage a draft on him a couple years back. Final piece of the puzzle? Not.

    Just goes to show you how fast the worm turns.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    Ouch. My first pick at receiver in fantasy this year.

    Time to head over to YAHOO for a lineup change.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    "A Falcons source tells the National Football Post's Jason Cole that Julio Jones (foot) 'broke the screw that was put in his foot in his 2011 surgery'." -Yahoo

    THAT cannot be good.

  • Hangover III worth renting?

    Yes/No

  • Jeff, I know this show is blowing you away too.

    Wow... just jaw droppingly, wow. Shocked and saddened, but what are we to do? I love this sport so much and I don't want it to go away.

    Kind think you need to do a column on it... tomorrow. WOW.

  • I don't think my son will play football. jesus.

  • The Ranting Rev to, of all places, Africa?

    Oh the IRONY !

    One of the few places in the world today where there are NO native species of, you guessed it - Bears!

  • Question of the day:

    Jacksonville Jaguars Fan

    or

    off to Malawi?

    (And remember, death is not an option)

  • Surprisingly the Bears are ranked #10 on the four letter. I thought fo sho they would be around 12 or 13.

  • I've got Marshall and Jeffrey, Nelson and Cruz on my lone FF team. Who shall I start this week? Don't think I can get away with starting both Marshall and Jeffrey this week.
