Hump Day at the MZone

Light posting today as the real job beckons (those bastards!).

So, let's just call this a potluck open thread. Pick a topic and discuss.

38 comments:

Did someone say "pot-luck?" Yummm.

god of the whoppers said...

did he mean this pot-luck?

I'm blue, da ba dee said...

This is going to be our topic of discussion? Seriously? How about we discuss henne's showing in the senior bowl and his stock as an NFL recruit... I think he's got 2nd round in the bag and might actually go late in the first with the amount of QB hungry teams... of course, he'll have to continue to impress at the combine...

Andy said...

Chad Henne to the Lions ?

Joshua said...

Andy, why would you wish that for someone? It's bad enough our future head coach (now ex-future head coach) Scott Loeffler has been bitten by the toxic kitties, please don't wish that on chad too.


Plus I don't think Chad's eligible- he's not a receiver.

Joshua said...

OMFG we have a winner! Check out Larry Foote's comments about MSU on WDFN's Stoney and Wojo show Tuesday afternoon.

"...let's just go there and make it a big parking lot, tear the whole school down"

And that's just the beginning.

Holy Shit.


What's the over/under on how many days the Spartan fans talk about this? I'm saying 263.

DaBraylon17 said...

let's talk about sex baby






































I meant the song you perverts...

DaBraylon17 said...

i really hope chad does not go to the lions. that team is god awful. one of the early mock drafts had hart and henne going to the pats.

Andy said...

Larry Foote's comments, while funny, are not needed at this time. One day in the next century Sparty will beat us in football (although they will likely have to cheat to get it done...) and there will be hell to pay.

Why can't we all just get along ???

surrounded in columbus said...

andy,
here's the problem w/ that logic. some day during the century the sparties will beat us, and there will be hell to pay no matter what we do or say in the interim.

as Bo said (like quoting god), they make more out of a single win than anybody. we beat them 5 or 10 times in a row and all they'll do is talk about that 1.

when we do eventually lose, every hotel clerk & farmer in the state will wear their puke green and flaunt their big win. when you point their previous X losses in a row, they'll just gloss right over that and start talking about their last minute win in '01 or how Gibson "schooled" us or how George Perles had the "tougher" team.

so, if we're going to take shit from these hayseeds, we might as well earn it.

Catie said...

I am not sure if Yost realized just exactly how dangerous offering up an open thread to this group of people could be. It should be interesting to see where this goes today ;o)

Catie said...

Oh, and Joshua, what did I miss? What is with the new avatar? Is this your new girlfriend? :P You could of at least picked a new avatar that the girls would like!! SIC and his puppy is a great example. (And Whets should leave SIC alone about his cute puppy avatar)

Sgt. Wolverine said...

I think it's actually a league rule that the Lions must struggle at the qb position (with occasional one-year anomalies allowed), so sending Henne to the Lions would most definitely destroy his career before it got started. I mean, the Lions are brutal on coaches, but I think they're even worse on qbs.

(Although Lions coaches do provide some of the most entertaining quotes. Bus ticket out of town, the bar is high ... )

Lysa said...

Ok which team is worse on QB's Da Bears or the Lions?

I'm blue, da ba dee said...

Bears, hands down... If it weren't for their 52 running backs and stout defense, they'd be helpless.

Sports on a Schtick said...

"Let's talk about the Blog Co-ed Showdown."
"...what's that?"

Joshua said...

Wow, I was really annoyed that my screen wasn't loading properly, then noticed that Bray had included like eleventy-billion spaces in his post and I hadn't been using the scroll bar. I'm now barring myself from picking on stupid people for a week.


Katie,
If you paid proper attention to my posts (like all the other girls do) you'd have seen this yesterday:

Dezzi posted a link saying that people who don't read the Freep miss out on articles like this.

My reply:

"Dez, I had no clue I made the paper. That's right, my real name is Frank Kozumplik, and I'm a drunken lawnmower driver. And I look amazingly like a soccer mom, as displayed by my avatar."

Kozumplik? Seriously? You can't make that shit up.

I rest my case.

MGoBlue93 said...

Cannot go to the link joshua... It's freep.com.

However, Sparty sure let the whole blogosphere know about their little moment of glory this weekend at Yost -- Foote will definitely get their panties in a knot.

We have never seen Michigan coaches run up the score, but I wouldn't mind seeing R2 "hang a hundred" on Sparty this fall.

as do i mine.

Joshua said...

Ok what did I miss before the censorship happened?

So..... so far this year we've learned:

The ladies like the puppy avatar, and Chicks Dig Widgets. Pay attention kids, and you too may one day get laid.

Joshua said...

Plaxico Burress predicted the Pats score only 17 this weekend. Tom Brady's response....

"(Laughs)... We're only gonna score 17 points? Okay. Is
Plax playing defense?"

All the time with a big grin on his face. They're gonna unleash hell on Sunday and score like 45. Brady is God.

Catie said...

My apologies for not paying closer attention!! :P

Joshua said...

Frank Kozumplik thanks you! Now go check your email woman!

zen wizard said...

Is it IMPOSSIBLE that the score will be 23-17 Giants?

I mean, I really don't have a dog in the hunt, I am just sayin'...weirder things have happened.

Joshua said...

Well as owner of Bradyisgod.com (save your time there's nothing there yet) I have a bit of a dog in the hunt. Plus I'm juts a big Pats fan. After being a Lions fan of course, but do they actually count as pro football? While not impossible that the G-men win 24-17, Bellichick has had 2 weeks to prepare. The Pats have been there before. Brady is the QB. Welker. Moss. A Manning on the other side. I just don't see it happening.

That having been said, I'm nervous as all crazy hell.

Mikoyan said...

I can't bring myself to root for the Patriots. They have the same fans as the Red Sux....If the Patriots do this, they will be insufferable for the next century.

Go Giants!

TitleIX said...

Shhhh
don't tell, but
I'm Ynez Brady ;-)

Joshua said...

For those of you who don't speak T-9 shorthand,

Ynez= (a completely babbling pile of mush whenever they mention the name Tom)

Sgt. Wolverine said...

"Now go check your email woman!"

Wait ... what's an email woman, and where can I get one?

Joshua said...

An email woman is a blowup doll with a laptop attached (for checking your email). You see, I believe in multi-tasking, which means my threesome fantasy isn't perverted- I'm merely striving to be more efficient.

Joshua said...

Oh, and they sell them in a special back room at Zingermann's, but you have to know the password.

god of the whoppers said...

"...a Manning..."

how about "That Manning"

Sgt. Wolverine said...

I assume you mean the original Zingerman's and not the overpriced and underdelicioused Roadhouse. That place makes me miss Bill Knapp's.

BlueFan said...

In preparation for Sunday, here's a bit of reminiscing from and about Tom Brady, much of it on his Michigan years:

The second link includes a photo for T9 - it's not much, but it's a closeup, and I'm sure he's looking at *you*, T9.

(You too Katie, er, Catie - what's with the "C"?)

Catie said...

HA! BLUE, you get the prize! I wondered if anyone would notice.

Long story, but in writing and publishing research, it goes under my legal name, which is Catherine. The "K" in Katie was causing a problem and so I am changing it to Catie. It seems very strange, so if I change back, don't be too surprised....LOL.
