UTWiz, on Kevin’s job preventing an appearance at LM Day XXX: “Weak. A real man would slit his boss' throat . . .”

Bucharest, on Bert’s burning down: “Saw that last night.....I shed a tear, and I think a few of my arteries unclogged....either way, a sad moment for sure.”

Makaveli: “If you like movies about mythical creatures, and are easily enticed by promises of mythical creatures in movies, then you may like Pan's Labyrinth, but not because of mythical creatures, and not for any other reason that I can explain.”

12ozLongneck, on strange lights appearing in the Phoenix area: “The aliens know that Evan is willing and ready to accept their anal probes.”

BevoisaSoxFan, on Anna Nicole Smith’s demise: “Not to be morbid but a buddy of mine had her in a Death Pool and he's pretty stoked right now.”

Mr. Peabody, during the Oscars: “I have not seen Pan's Labyrinth yet. Based on seeing spots of it tonight, I believe Robert is liar. I've seen evidence of mythical creatures.”

Hornmafia: “Hey if we're not allowed to kick our friends in the balls every now and then who can we kick in the balls?”

12ozLongneck: “Fran was on College Football Live the other day. They asked him what it took to win the Big 12 South, which is more or less like asking me what it takes to organize a good supermodel orgy.”

Tamut98, on A&M claiming an intrasquad scrimmage as a win: “That's like jacking off and then bragging that you got some.”

U2-Horn: “Ask any woman between 28-38 years old and there's a 94% chance their favorite movie of all time is Pretty Woman or Princess Bride.”

UTwiz, on Aggies: “The fact that that institution and its branch davidians feel anything more than utter failure makes me want to throw up. I can't stress how much hate I feel inside my veins for them. Really, I'm shaking just typing this.”

12ozLongneck: “In spite of what some fans may think, we're not entitled to a national championship every year. However, I think that expecting that we not make Lane look like Jerry Rice on 3rd and 20 isn't asking too much.”

Makaveli: “Yes, I find the conversations I have with myself to be the most thought-provoking, entertaining, and intelligent communications I have on this site.”

Drew, on how to spend an ‘ice day’: “Another RT... you should see the look I got when I bought an 18-pack of beer at 8 am on a Monday morning.”

Makaveli, on the site record for users online at one time: “They were all lurking on ATC. Probably googling for answers to life's problems lead them to read my lonely rants.”

LMQueen, on the worst trip to Gruene… ever: “8 DPS officers with people pulled over on I-35 between Austin and San Marcos should have been sign for us to turn around and go home”

12ozLongneck: “I would like there to be a reality show where Benson, Mr. Peabody and Chay all live in a house together.”

BevoisaSoxFan: “I have to say that going to just the tailgate and not going to the game could be considered more fun. I especially enjoyed yelling at the girls in line for the port-o-potty asking them if they wanted to meet Pope.”

LMQueen, live from Vegas: “Drew tried to double down on 14. No comment.”

Beam,coke&horns, on people at work: “Is there anything more disgusting than going to wash your hands and having to stand next to someone brushing thier teeth? Dude, you get off in 4 hours- your teeth can handle the wait.”

HornMafia, live from Stillwater: “I'm posting from a wireless connection at the Days Inn that is about as fast as Mark Mangino running the 100 meters.”

EDavis, on ATL Longhorn’s radio show: “If you can take calls during your show, you should supply us the number. I bet we could save the station with the things we would call in about.”

EDavis, on WFLIP’s thought about changing his hairdo: “Shave your head. It is the best thing I have ever done. Of course my hairline was receeding like the French troops at a play ground fight but I really do like it now!”

Phil Elliot: “A woman who wears any type of heel with a bikini looks like a whore. That's a really good reason why the Miss America pageant never did anything for me.”

Tamut98, on rec softball: “I came out of retirement for 1 game 3 years ago. Got a hit first time up, Thinking... Hey I can still do this!) Later in the game... Grounded out 3 times...in the same inning!”

Scruffhorn: “I'd rather have Craig Way's life than the generic businessman life that I and probably several others on here have.”

Bucharest, after Barbaro was euthanized: “Who's up for a Glue Party???”

UTwiz, during Texas-A&M b-ball game: ‘Has there ever, EVER, in the HISTORY of basketball, been a bigger discrepency in talent from sub-in to sub-out as there was when Durant came back in for Atchley?”

UTwiz, on A&M rushing the court at Reed Arena after a *road* win over Kansas: “The entire essence of A&M is like an extension to high school, with a stronger ROTC program.”

Makaveli, after the same game: “That must have been the largest crowd to ever not attend a basketball game in Texas history.”

BarryBnds, responding to a thread named, “Larussa asleep at the wheel”: “Sorry I thought this was about the 1988/1990 World Series.”

HornMafia, to BarryBnds: “I really hope you contribute more to society than you do this board, because you would really be a worthless carbon-based lifeform.”

UTwiz: “Does anyone else ever picture a 12 year old Tim Duncan making the face he makes after every foul called on him - when his mom gets on to him for not taking out the trash or for the "B" in math? I mean, that look is not something that can be taught, you're either born with it or you're not.”

EDavis: “If I want the Nascar experience, I will tape some Hot Wheels to my ceiling fan and turn it on high.”

HornMafia, to UTwiz, after the Rangers lost on the latter’s birthday: “At least they got a hit on your birthday.”

Music City Mafia, one month into the Rangers’ 2007 campaign: “I like our new strategy for not losing. Pray for more rain.”

Bucharest, on the NBA MVP race: “Hakeem is to David Robinson what Vince is to Reggie Bush what Steve Nash is to Dirk......and I don't mean butt-buddies.”

12ozLongneck, on the prospects of blowing up the rangers: “Careful. I think Jon Daniels was probably the GM for the native americans when they traded Manhattan for some firewater and a few smallpox-infested blankets.”

Makaveli: “Stars have won just as many NBA titles as the Mavericks, and have a Stanley Cup to boot.”

12ozLongneck, after making a bad joke: “Yeah. I MusicCityMafia-ed the thread.”

Hornmafia, after Norv Turner was rumored to be the next Dallas coach: “Is there an emoticon for throwing up in your mouth a little bit?”

Makaveli, getting into it with Ben before the Super Bowl: “Please. Trent Dilfer is the Joe Montana of Rex Grossmans.”

Makaveli, getting into it with Ben after the Super Bowl: “Smooth pretty much has everything right. <tiny font> Other than the basic understanding of freedom, democracy, and capitalism, the purpose of government, the meaning of "life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness", matters of war & peace, the nature of our existence, and the evaluation of NFL Quarterbacks.... </tiny font>

Markaholic, on being like Pacman Jones: “Someday I want to do that at the tailgate. I'll just come in with $100 in donation money and "make it rain" all over the tip jar.”

OKC Longhorn, on potential pitfalls in the new Big 12 TV deal: “8:00 games= recipe for disaster. A lifeguard will need to be hired for piss creek.”

12ozLongneck, on Henry Melton’s DWI: “He could have gotten out of the ticket if he had run over the officer, but he tried to drive around him instead.”

HornMafia, after Dre Jones’ arrest: “I think we should stop using a "holier than thou" attitude until the Austin Police Department stops using our team picture as a lineup.”

Txlonghorn47: “Roy Williams is fucking awful. Seriously I would rather them just put Pope at saftey the rest of the year. I don't even care if Pope is 2 bottles in when the game starts, it can't be as bad as what is going on right now.”

Bucharest, referring to the Baylor coach that pissed on a Waco bar: “What are the chances of Jeremy falling on that bar this weekend in Waco?”

Drew, on the camera angle during the Baylor broadcast: “I have seen 25-30 games in Floyd Casey Stadium. I do not recall ever seeing a place that high up in the stadium. I'm pretty sure they are filming from atop the Alico building.”

Drew, on A&M’s “Cart McCry” moniker: “Whatever compassion I held for that school in November of 99, the part that didn't evaporate after fat-ass made the throat-slash gesture) has completely eroded. Ten bonfires could collapse and I would never again feel sorry for those low-rent bastards in B/CS.”


Good Calls!

OKC Longhorn, on Chris Moltisanti’s demise: “I say Tony Does it.”

Drew, after Dan Wheeler was traded in July: ‘The 08 Astros are going to look very different from the 07 Astros. I can't help thinking that may be a very good thing.”

HornMafia, on 1/31, quoting 11/21 Carlos Boozer prediction: “Boozer to miss 4-6 weeks.”

Drew, citing a USA Today college baseball preview: “Russell in the "more speed than power" camp? Have they seen him mash the ball?”

HornMafia, prior to the all-star game: “By the way, this should lock up MVP for Dirk...38-9 with a bunch on non All Stars on his team. WOW!”

Markaholic, prior to the Texas-A&M b-ball game: “I predict "one and done." Appropo for a season where two of our best players will leave for the NBA after just one season.”

EDavis, responding to Cory’s Suns-over-Mavs post: “I doubt you will even have a chance to play the Mavs in the playoffs.”

Txlonghorn47, prior to BCS title game: “Mark it down. Florida wins tonight.”

Markaholic, on John Chiles, during the spring: “Just having him in for one series will make Colt more effective on the ZR fake.”

Bucharest, on 11/5: “That Georgia-Hawaii matchup just made me throw up.....can you imagine what it must do to Sugar Bowl reps???”

UTwiz: “I'm just warning everyone - don't be surprised when JC declares after the bowl game.”

Need a Mulligan!

CHB Horn, after Bobby finally pops someone: “So... Bobby will get pinched with the DNA evidence from his shirt that the guy tore off him?”

Markaholic, on the Sopranos: “Should be an ugly ending. Somehow AJ will be involved, I think.”

Markaholic, on the Sopranos’ finale: “Tony escapes Phil, who is located and killed by the Soprano gang.... then Tony is knocked off by his own son.”

HornMafia, on the Sopranos’ finale: NJ kills Phil...feds, fearing the backlash from a full-scale mob war, crack down and arrest Tony.

MBK271, on the Sopranos’ finale: “Paulie betrays the family.”

Drew, after Dan Wheeler was traded in July: “Lamb and Loretta are likely to be shipped off before tomorrow's deadline, as their departure no longer leaves a huge hole at 3rd.”

HornMafia, immediately after the A&M loss: “Have fun in the fucking Alamo Bowl getting run over by Wisconsin or the Holiday Bowl getting run over by Arizona State.”

Reinheitsgebot, on Houston’s postseason chances, immediately after Craig Biggio’s 3000th hit: “if you think they are out of the playoffs, the consider yourself the casual observer.”

McKinney Horn, on a gift for the wife: “By the way, what the hell does 'coach' mean? She mentions it out of the side of her mouth and I'm thinking the Craig T. Nelson show back in the early 90's, right? She's got a DVD collection coming then. She'll be so excited, as much as I will be. Loved that show!”

Drew, prior to pulling a Kansas City Chiefs in two of three fantasy leagues: “I won all three games, scoring 90+ points in each one. Definitely a first for me.”

HornMafia: “I fucking hate Bill Belichick and his goddamn cheating ass dumb sweatshirt wearing breaking up a marriage son of a bitch. Come to Dallas and eat a shit sandwich October 14th asshole.”

Scruffhorn, on the Spurs: “It's a long season and it's only January, but right now I'm not optimistic.”

Markaholic, prior to the second Texas-A&M b-ball game: “I predict "one and done." Appropo for a season where two of our best players will leave for the NBA after just one season.”

Drew, prior to the NBA trade deadline: “When did SA last win? I saw them lose at the buzzer Friday night, and they lost today, too. They don't seem very good”

Silverado, after Game 2 against Golden State: “Not to speak for Dirk, but I'd take an NBA championship over all the MVP trophies.”

UTwiz, before the Silver Boot series began: “The biggest issue here is why are we all not betting all our 401k's on a Houston sweep? Those odds would pay huge, yet this feat is sure to happen.”

Drew, in May, on the Astros: “This team may not make the postseason, but if they keep up these late-inning rallies, they'll contend late into the season, and I'll keep watching.”

Music City Mafia, in May: “I don't see the Yankees making the playoffs. I see them hunting for a new GM before next season.”

AtlLonghorn, prior to the BCS title game: “I don't get where all this Florida love comes from. Chris Leak will throw at least one horrible interception that kills the Gators.”

Txlonghorn47, after the first day of spring ball: “I almost, I said almost, feel bad for Killabrew and Derry. They have been pretty good players here, but I just don't see how you can keep Muck and Kindle off the field this year. I would like to see Jared Norton get out there some too.”

Coryomfs, on Dallas signing Big: “Way overpaid for davis.....idiots”

Markaholic, in March: “Welker is a decent return guy, but a below average WR. To have to give away picks for him is just silly.”

Markaholic, on Greg Ellis, at the beginning of training camp: “You watch, he'll be gone the the first game in a trade.”

Txlonghorn47, on Greg Ellis, at the beginning of training camp: “IF he ever gets back on the field again I guarantee you he won't be a top 2-3 guy on the field coming off that injury.”

Bucharest, on Chip Brown’s preseason picks: “Love his prediction that OU loses at Colorado....it's like he's pulling shit out of a hat. However, it doesn't surprise me that he doesn't like our chances.....fucking Aggietown.”

Drew: “There is no "pattern" from last year. Last year was an abberation from the norm of... well, every year since 1999. If there is a pattern to be followed it's that we lose a game somewhere that we probably shouldn't and thus maybe miss the BCS or Big 12 title game.”

12ozLongneck: “Man... Sportswriters never get tired of picking Missouri to win the north, do they?”

Txlonghorn47: “Nebraska is going to be pretty damn good this year IMO.”

And she’s still hoping to get the ‘Carmella’ role should Matt ever finally follow up Spare Wars with The Spare-anos.

Blondie, on her favorite Christmas gift: “An envelope of cash. Seriously. I felt like I was at a mafia wedding or something. It was way cool!”

Just your typical day-in-the-life of one, Robert A. Frazier.

“Yeah, so I'm engaged, getting married on June 29 and planning that, NO, nobody is pregant, I'm moving tonight and tomorrow although I haven't packed a thing, moving again in 7 months, trying to survive tax season while other big things are changing in my business, got a dog who pisses and shits on everything it doesn't chew up, planning about half a dozen different business trips, vacations, honeymoon, etc, still trying to play my golf tournament schedule, hemmoraging cash to a degree previously unimaginable, and I've also lost nearly 30 lbs.”

Not to be out-done…

Markaholic, on his engagement: “Funny side note. I told her best friends earlier in the day and one of them got drunk and kept calling me all afternoon that day to find out more about the ring and what I was going to do and if I had already done it and so on. So I keep getting calls from her.

Amy NEVER asks "who was that?," but for some reason she did all day that day. I suck at lying so she knew something was up when I made up lame excuses for each call., we were in separate cars, but she saw me on the phone and later she saw my phone keep lighting up and me declining the calls)

Anyway she starts thinking that I'm having an affair. When I turned to her to start the proposal at dinner, she was scared that I was going to tell her the bad news and possibly break up with her.

Of course, I was nerve racked all evening and that made things worse.

So we both go from being stressed, freaked out and upset to elated, happy and in love.

Crazy.”

Hallmark is considering legal action…

Bucharest: “F Valentine's Day......dumbest fucking "holiday" of the year. Let me see, go out and spend $150 on roses, then go wait 2 hours for dinner at a restaurant that you usually would wait less than 30.....then inevitably drink too much, stay out late and show up to work the next day with a killer hangover and nothing to show for it the next day because you passed out in your bed before your girl even made it there.”

This one, too…

Mr. Peabody, posts about his dinner on 2/15: “Last Night & Tonight - Malt O Meal. I love that stuff.”
Hornmafia: “Valentine's Dinner = Malt O Meal?”
Mr. Peabody: “Everyone at my house is sick with the flu except me., knock on wood)”
UTwiz: “Sounds like you knocked on your own wood . . .”

Happy Birthday… to me!

Drew: “I have the best employees, btw! They bought me an ice cream cake, two twelve packs and a six pack of Dos Equis, AND a handle of Tito's.”
EDavis: Psst: "we are taking up a collection for the bosses birthday present." "Oh, yeah what are we buying?" "Well, we are just going to go to the beer store and get some stuff...oh, and we may pick up a cake."

So Stacey is, or is not, a Transformers fan?

Eochs: “It was no cheesier then the original cartoons, its just that we are all 20 years older now. If you go into the movie expecting to have a good time and not questioning things the movie is great.”
UTwiz: “I think that was my wife's outlook when I first proposed to her . . .”

The Legend of Barrell Roll Jackson

“One evening Jay Jackson and company were on their way to see the greatness of Stoney Larue at Gater's in Gun Barrel City, TX. To everyone's demise, parking was full at Gater's and patrons were instructed to park in the field across the street. Most in the group thought, "Eh, no problem. It's a short walk." Jay quickly changed his mind when he saw the almost knee length grass that served as the alternate parking lot.

You see, Jay has an uncontrollable fear of snakes. The kind of fear and behavior that a woman has when she hears of a mouse or rat in the house. You know the type, jump up on a chair and not come down until the threat has been removed or exterminated.

Rather than stay in the car and miss the concert, Jay decides to make a run at it. And that he did. The high-stepping that was witnessed would make Mad-Dog Madden proud and embarrass those in practice this week at the 40 acres trying to maneuver their way through the rope drills. Quick feet doesn't quite describe it.

Jay was making impressive time across the field as the rest of the crew hung back to take their time and finish their beer during the walk. Suddenly, it all went wrong for Jackson.

"Oh, Shit!" was bellowed across the field as Jay appeared to go into some sort of barrel roll movement and vanished from sight. The group wasn't sure exactly what happened but the stop-down, belly-aching laughter that ensued indicated that they were sure it was going to be something classic.

Quickly, Jay appears as he hops up but noticeably lame. Jay hobbles to the sidewalk cursing those getting so much amusement out of his situation. The group approaches the area of the accident and finds the culprit.

A valley lays before them with dimensions of about 4 ft X 3 ft and about 3 ft deep.

The Stoney show, which was once the headliner, was now just the encore for what was already seen.”

But did you double-bag it?

Bevoisasoxfan: “I solicited a Moroccan prostitute once. I'm not very proud about that.”

Yes, yes she is…

Bucharest, on ‘Steak and a Blowjob’ Day: “My girlfriend has had this marked on her "Countdown" Widget, which is one of those cool desktop widget screen things they have for Macs, kind of like gadgets on Vista for us Windows folk. Anyway, the real moral of the story here.............she's like really cool and shit!!!!”

Chay was right last year…

Arch: “Time to discuss my bachelor party.

What would be the interest level if porn stars would be at the Red Sox - Rangers tailgate in Arlington on Saturday April 7th?

There is a SonsofSamHorn tailgate that is FoLM-friendly, plus a baseball game and then "activities" afterwards including the previously mentioned porn stars.

Just curious.”

Important commentary on “Nature v. Nurture.”

BevoisaSoxFan: “When it comes to massages, always stick with a broad. Even the slightest appearance of a chub while a dude is massaging you can put a thousand doubts in your mind. Cancel now!”

Important commentary on “Nature v. Nurture.” Part II

EDavis: “Good news. When I called to cancel I was told I would be charged a $20 cancellation fee. I agreed to pay the fee and the receptionist asked why I was cancelling. I explained to her that I am not comfortable getting a massage from a man to which she says, "Well, Dani is a woman." So obviousvly I didn't cancel and when I show up Dani is hot! I mean HOT! So to sum up Dani was hot!”

So his girlfriend may want to forget about gift cards to Lowe’s or Home Depot next birthday…

Bucharest: “Jesus, I guess I'm weird, but I have absolutely zero interest whatsover in learning how to build anything, fix anything, do anything with my car or anything that I could just as easily pay somebody else to do.”

Time to invest in Starbucks

Makaveli: “I usually drink...

a Quadruple Venti Expresso drink for Breakfast
a Triple Grande after Lunch...
and a Double Tall after dinner.

Throw in 2-3 cups of coffee during meetings through the day.

It allows me to sustain a pretty fast pace for a good 16-18 hours a day.

Of course there may be risks to my strategy. Who knows. It does work.”

12ozLongneck: “Holy. Fucking. Shit. You probably look like you have Parkinson's Disease by 9 AM.”

Remember that old cable access show, Cocktalk?

Drew: “Last night I was playng GHII.

I let my johnson hang out while I scored five stars on "Crazy on You."

Rock out with your motherfucking cock out.

I did.

And I fucking rule.

No one here can beat me.”

Makaveli: “Speaking of Johnsons, I just saw that Cialis commercial. It says that if you have an erection that lasts more than four hours, that you should see your doctor....because this could be a problem.

But what if it lasts exactly 4 hours. Or 3 1/2 hours. What is that like totally cool, no worries ???

If so that's good information to know. Otherwise I'd be likely to start panicking around the 20 minute mark.”

It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you…

BevoisaSoxFan, after failing to advance in the World Series of Pop Culture: “They had some pretty hard questions on there. The bright side was that Daniel Larusso's Gonna Fight did win the hearts of the audience during the talent show portion when we re-enacted the last scene of the Karate Kid. I was Johnny and I got my face kicked in by a short, fat Indian who played Daniel. It was awesome.”

But he was great in American Gangster…

Mr. Peabody, on the Oscars: “don't care about the rest of the categories. they are as meaningless as Denzel getting best actor for Training Day. What a f'ing joke.”
Hornmafia: “There are 3 posts on this board from Mr. Peabody about Denzel winning Best Actor for Training Day. And probably more before that on LFZ, when did he win BA for that?). He was really upset about this.”
12ozLongneck: “Mr. Peabody is obviously not full of Black History Month spirit.”
U2-Horn: “I'll bet he would give halle berry his golden statue”

Just in case you want to catch up on the episode you missed

AtlLonghorn: “these rules apply to every episode of every season of 24:

1) Never leave Jack alone with a henchman.

2) Women are nothing but trouble.

3) WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

4) Computer nerds are meant to sit behind a computer and not do anything practical.

5) You can't trust anyone in CTU or the President's cabinet.

6) Jack Bauer is a bad ass.”

The “Come to Jesus” Meeting

MBK271: “The good news is that last night, while we were both wasted) I wrote down the three points of why I was pissed off, so I wouldn't forget during my rant) and I asked her this morning to tell me the three reasons that I was upset.

They were out of order, but she nailed all three.

Done. It's not the apology that I need, it's just for her to hear me so that I know that it won't happen again.”

Best pseudo-anecdote that could have been posted by Janet Cooke

Let me say that there is a certain individual that has become a regular when he is in town. Now, celebrities are nothing new to us, but this one does have an ever larger aura surrounding him. This particular person is... [picture of OJ Simpson]

Now, last night, he rolls in with a mini-entourage and things are slow but the alcohol is flowing. Cute blond girls flock to him as if he were a designer handbag.

For some reason, he takes a liking to me. I don't know what to think about that, but for now, I'll deal with it. We shoot the shit about everything from Dallas nightlife to the Buffalo Bills.

The night goes on and by this time, I think I have replaced AC Cowlings as his designated driver. Wanting to exit, we head for an elevator and as the doors close, we are the only two on there. You have that regular elevator "silence" that always occurs but I know that I have only 35 seconds alone...so I take the chance.

I give him a head nod and look him straight in the eye. I can see into his soul. This is my shot.

Hey man...did you do it?

There was a long pause. The elevator was quickly approaching the lobby. He looked at the ground. His head slowly rose. There was a look on his face of...relief.

He coughed one time, looked at me, and right as the doors opened, he says...

[Journey]Don't stop believin'...[/Journey]

Best conversation on the male anatomy

LMQueen: “I managed to live almost 29 years before learning of the double stream. Very odd phenomenon, imo.”
Tamut98: “Ever heard about shrinkage?”
‘Hornbybirth: “Shawna hates the clean up after a double stream event.”
Markaholic: “Does the double stream roll the opposite way when you are in Australia?”
Makaveli: “No laws of physics apply here. I think God just invented it ... To give us an excuse for pissing all over the floor.”

Best posting-equivalent of a “Come to Jesus” meeting

LMQueen: “If we have learned anything from terrorism, illness, random accidents , etc. it should be that you always take inventory of the people that are important to you in your life and make sure they always know they are important.

As a Cancer, I am an extremely loyal friend. I will go the distance to help someone or be there for them in their time of celebration and in their time of need. However, I will only invite you to so many events so many times without a response before I come to the conclusion that I am just not important enough to you for you to make time for me.

I am so f-ing sick of people who can't put whatever they have going on in their lives, and we are all *busy* people) aside for ONE night to come out and celebrate a milestone in a friend's life.

We haven't all been together as a group in a long long time and it is stupid that we should have to beg people to come out or even make an appearance. I am done. Matt's done. Done trying to maintain relationships/friendships that seem completely one sided. You can call us when you're ready to hang out again and we'll be happy to hear from you, but no more begging for your precious time.

This is definitely not directed at one person because it has been coming from multiple people for a long time.

So anyways, big thanks to all of you coming into town today and making the effort.”

Best anecdote involving a former Heisman winner

Markaholic: “Side note: I was having beers at the Shoal Creek Saloon and Earl was there about 3 years ago. His people left so we started talking to him and he invited us over to his table. He told me that he's been spending a lot of time at his Tyler ranch. Said he's going to "get me a bus", same one he used to park next to us) to drive him up there "cause that Al Queda...he says he's gonna bomb some more planes."
He truly thought that Al Queda was a person.”

Makaveli: “I think an interesting argument could pick to pick one or the other:

1. Aim to Do nothing about radical islam and execute the plan to perfection.
2. Attempt to confront and defeat radical islam, but do it half-ass and inefficiently.

I'll choose 2.

I think another good question would be to choose the bigger threat to us:
1. Radical Islam
2. Carbon Dioxide

I choose 1.

I hear people talking about the year 2080 and first I wonder if we'll be here anyway...but there's a decent chance we're all dead anyway if we don't eliminate, radical) Islam.”

But was he also wearing jorts?

HornMafia: “So Robbi and I were returning from the mall last night and stopped at a traffic light.

We giggle at the bumper sticker on the late model Oldsmobile in front of us that says, "Support the BALLS".

Then it happened.

The guy busted out a can of hair spray and sprayed his mullet, then ran his fingers through his hair.

I almost missed the light turning green from laughing so hard.”

Best typical day in the life of Chay Jackson

“Realize that it is 76 degrees outside

Leave work at noon

Head straight to The Oasis

Sit out on the deck

Drink many Dos XX

Start talking about George's Bar

Realize that B Rheay has never been to George's Bar

Decide that it is a good idea to drive from Dallas to George's Bar so B Rheay can experience it

Make CD for drive to George's Bar

Dominate the jukebox at George's

5 hours, 8 Big O's, 2 orders of crazy wings, and a waitresses phone number later head back to Dallas

Stop at beer store in Elm Mott

Drive to random chicks house

Run shitty drunken creepy game on them

Come home only to realize I have twice as much to do tommorow because of what I did today

Look in mirror and realize that "racoon eyes" are already starting to form and it is only Feb 26

Today dominated. I felt like I was back in college”

Second Best typical day in the life of Chay Jackson

“I remember getting to Billy Bob's

I remember meeting up with Seth and Dean

Best typical day in the coaching life of Chay “Tark the Shark” Jackson

“Trailing by 5 with 3 minutes left one of my guards drives the lane and gets fouled. The guy who fouled him starts talking shit and gets T'ed up. So I'm picking who I want to shoot the technical when out of the corner of my eye I see a "ruckus". The guy who fouled my guy has now shoved my guy and said "fuck you". Well my guy hauls off and straight up jacks this guy in the face. I mean fucked the guy up. The dude is bleeding all over the place and trying to get after my guy. My guy who is prob my second best player is tossed from the game AND the league. The other guy is tossed from the game. So, I'm trying to get my guys back to the bench when the ref calls the game because he "lost control of the situation".

So I am 0-1 so far, but we were about to win that game. They had no answer for that 1 2 2 and we were finally getting hot on the offensive end.

Like I said earlier we need some work, and losing our second best player for the year prob isn't going to help anything.”

Best atypical day in the life of Chay Jackson, as imagined by Mark Stevenson

Markaholic: “OK, again...so he was jogging by your gramma's yard. And you were just standing there. Did you stop him from jogging or did you just start running with him ala Rocky and chit chatted?

Most of the time when I'm jogging and I see someone I "went to HS with" I just give them a nod and finish my run. UNNNNless they jump out in front of me and say "Markaholic!...We went to HP together. What are you doing these days? thinking about going Pro-aholic?"”

Best typical day in the life of Seth Plunk, as recalled by Chay Jackson

“Dean and his roomate(I can't remember the guys name, so lets call him Bob) got into an argument about something. Well Dean kinda grabbed Bob by the face to get him to shut up. Well then Bobs friends kinda get mad and start trying to break them up. Well then Seth gets in the middle of it, and it turns into one huge shoving match with The Deans dad(aka Ditka) trying break everything up. Everyonf finally gets kinda seperated, but people are still talking shit, so Seth shoves one of these dudes pretty good. Well the guy hauls off and hits Seth in the mouth. Seth grabs him and kinda form tackles him onto the air hockey table and then punches the dude in the face. Then Ditka and The Dean get in there and pull them off of each other and all those guys leave.

All while I am standing in the kitchen still laughing a driking my beer. I'm sure some of y'all will prob say I should have jumped in there and helped out Seth, but it really happened too fast, and if it had gotten out of hand I would have helped him out.”

He doesn't shower of change clothes. He just rolls with us to the tailgate. He is drunk.

He yells at Cory Morrow.

He just now showed back up and Flounders becuase he has been passed out in a ditch on the side of the rode since 3 PM.

By the way just to clarify how cool he is. He is a pilot.”

THE GREAT RACE OF 2007

By Britt Hardeman

The Great Race of 2007 started like any other great racing matchup, see also, Donovan Bailey V. Michael Johnson), following several pitchers of LoneStar in the beergarden of Sholz's and a double overtime win over the Aggies....

To preface, we must go back in time to earlier that evening. Jimmy and Big Len had been consuming at an ever increasing pace. Jimmy was actually quoted earlier in the night as telling Robert Killebrew that he could beat him in a 40 and that though he was a backup linebacker at Westlake, he STILL made all Cen-Tex. Big Len encouraged Killebrew to "just hit him in the face and shut him up". This only fueled the fire that was brewing inside your Jimmy Miri.

Later, at the halls of justice, Sholz's), Jimmy and Big Len's feud came to its apex. One thing led to another, someone was called a "freakin swimmer", someone claimed yet again to be a "former all centex backup linebacker who could run a 4.5 forty", we're still checking the runners bio's for accuracy). After several bets that Jimmy couldn't run a 4.5 "30" his rage was boiling. Big Len piped in that he could "smoke" Jimmy in a 40 yard dash without putting down his cigarette.

After some encouraging from the peanut gallery, me, Gilbert, and Fleming), the two alleged former athletes suited up and sat down their warm plastic cups of beer and and their pulled pork sandwiches and took their marks outside on the street adjacent to Sholz's. In the distance, you could actually here Seinfeld's voice saying "oh yeah, this is gonna turn out good".

The race started out with Big LEn getting a bit of a jump start. Jimmy quickly turned into high gear, relatively, just as they were passing Sholzs. About 11 yards into the 40 yard "dash" the fatigue/drunkenness/smoking habits kicked in and jumped on big lens back like an 8000 lbs gorilla carrying a school bus of Rosie O'Donnell's fan club....Seizing the moment, young Jimmy Miri reached deep within his Westlake soul repeating to himself "what would Ryan Nunez do" and started closing the gap. With his PakMail shirt tail flowing in the wind closely resembling a cape, the crowd of onlookers started cheering when it looked as though Jimmy was going to overtake the tiring Big Len. Jimmys stride was kickin and he was slicing through the warm evening air like a knife through butter. Though the lead had once looked insurmountable, Jimmy was resembling a floating AC Law/Danny White three pointer at the buzzer that deep down inside we all KNEW was going in.....

But alas, with about 15 yards to go, Jimmy's top-heavy physique was more than his 32yr frame could handle and his legs succumbed to the superfluous weight...As Big Len valiantly and jubilantly crossed the finish line, Jimmy was sliding face first into a sea of concrete. After sliding a good 9 yards, the beast that is Jimmy Miri finally came to its final resting place a good 7 yards from the finish line.

Though Jimmy gave a good effort, he left it all on the field....errr street. Including most of the skin off of his left forearm and hip.

As we cleaned Jimmy's wounds with warm beer and an extra bar towel that had been lying around Big Len was quoted as saying, while struggling to breath) "dude, I'm out".

He sparked up a smoke and he walked off into the darkness......”

That really got out of hand. Brick killed a guy with a trident

OKC Longhorn, after Texas held on to beat A&M Austin: “I think Jeremy goes on an actual killing spree if A&M scores that last tip due to Atchley looking at the bench and not boxing out his player.

Not cusssing and throwing shit......I think he acutally takes a life or two tonight.”

Best discussion about the merits of foregoing eligibility

Scruffhorn, on DJ Augustin’s announcement that he would return in 07/08: “TJ Ford and Vince Young kept saying they were returning also....”
UTwiz: “Not even remotely CLOSE to the same scenario. DJ is a top 15 pick, VY was a top 3. Fish/JR. I am much more optimistic about DJ coming back than I was Vince.”
Drew: “If we win the NC I'll worry about DJ changing his mind.”
Bucharest: “If we win the National Championship, they can all go pro for all I care.”
UTwiz: “Hell, if we win the national championship, I'LL go pro.”
‘Hornbybirth: “Hooker's on Harry Hines don't count as Professional!”

I told you so… or somesuch…

Hornmafia: “A little bit of background first.

A couple of weeks ago, on a drunken night playing Dominoes, sandwiched somewhere between Race in America talk and Why Didn't We Buy Tickets Earlier talk was a discussion on the 2007 Dallas Mavericks.

We were going along and young Sethery threw out this assertion:

"Devean George is more important to the team than Jerry Stackhouse."

Now you can make the argument that this might be the case, due to an increased defensive presence, NBA Finals experience, etc., but let's not forget that Jerry Stackhouse has won a scoring title in this league. But whatever, it's not that bad of a point.

Then came last night.

I told ya D George was more important than Stack.

So I looked at the box score from last night:

D George

9 minutes
1/4 shooting
2 rebounds
3 points
0 assists
0 steals

J Stackhouse

29 minutes
4/11 shooting
10 points
1 rebound
4 assists
1 steal
2 turnovers

<scratching head smiley>

Just thought it was an odd time to pull out your sword on that argument?”

Best rant about Bill Simmons

Drew, about to blow a gasket reading Simmons’ sheep bombard him with anti-Rick Barnes emails: “So... numbnuts gets emails from all these people that have watched about as much Texas basketball, if that much) as I have this year, without having watched as much the previous eight years, which of course included a Final Four and two Elite Eights), and now every 20-something fanboy with Page 2 bookmarked is racing each other to make bad pop culture references, which are still better than Simmons references) about a coach that isn't even close to being a tenth as bad as he says.

This is the same guy that calls Pete Carroll a horrible coach, too, just because he didn't win in the NFL.

See... that's the problem that you have when people that didn't go to a real school start trying to cover college athletics. Or even watch college athletics.

Or maybe the problem remains that he's a smarmy Yankee, who like all other Yankees, thinks he's smarter than everyone else. Either way Simmons has become a self-parody. It's too bad.”

Can I get an amen?

HornMafia: “The anticipation was too much.

You can hardly sleep the night before, and the morning of you just watch the clock waiting for that moment where you pack up the car and take off. The car can't seem to go fast enough as you make your way to your destination, and when you arrive your heart feels like it's going to beat right out of your chest.

You get out of the car and you're pretty sure you've never seen anything this beautiful in your whole life. As you approach the gate you can smell the culinary delights not found anywhere else, can hear the sounds of the reason you are here filtering through up to your ears. Someone declares that they have to go to the bathroom first and you slump your shoulders and silently tell them to hurry the hell up. Finally they are ready. You've been ready for 6 months.

As you walk up the ramp, you see the seats first, then the rigid wall, and then there it is...

That pristine grass.

It's baseball time in Texas.

Obviously as a kid I was way more excited for this day, but there is something about baseball that brings out the kid in all of us.

No matter if you are a fan of the Devil Rays or the Yankees, you feel that your team has a great chance at the World Series. Extreme optimism is a trait that's ingrained in every baseball fan, and every fan that walks out of the ballpark in defeat on opening day will tell you, "Hey, it's only one of 162."

Baseball is unlike any other sport in that you feel the presence of baseball's past no matter if you are in New York, Detroit, Arlington or San Diego. Of course if you sit in the stands at Yankee Stadium you can see at least a general idea of the batting box that legends like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Joe Dimaggio and many, many others occupied at one time. But even in newer parks you can close your eyes and see Willie Mays making a basket catch, hear the bat and imagine Roger Maris and his chase for 61, or hear the pop in the catcher's mitt and imagine a Bob Gibson fastball whizzing 4 inches from a batter's head.

The game starts and you grab a beer, the one advantage of now as opposed to being a kid), and settle in for the contest, every care in your world melting away. At this moment you don't care about steroids, about labor negotiations, about your team's, realistic) pennant chances, you're just participating in the quinessential American experience...and you're a kid again.

At the end, you'll join the ranks filing out of the stadium, slowly shifting back from the kid to your adult state. Tomorrow, you go back to your job and your way of life. But you'll be back.

Because this was only one of 162.”

Rangers or Astros?

UTwiz: “Will somebody wake the bitch ass of a middle of the order up and inform them that these at-bats actually count?”

NTTAWWT

HornMafia: “There is plenty of Kinsler love to go around.

In a purely non-sexual way, of course.”

And the 1992-93 Temple Wildcat basketball team sighs

Txlonghorn47: “After 10 straight wins over the Owls they finally stole one last night.”
Phil Elliot: “It's hard to beat a team 11 times in a row.”
UTwiz: : Golden State is on their way to disproving that . . .”

Morbid thought of the year

UTwiz: “You know, it really is going to be a tight race for biggest collapse to end the season for most of our favorite teams this fiscal sports year

- Texas loses to KSU, A&M, at home), and then barely scrapes by a 6-6 Iowa team that didn't even deserve to go to a bowl in the first place

- Texas loses the last game of the season, up by 18 at one point) to lose the regular season crown, the Big 12 championship game that was there for the taking, then almost gets beat by a scrub ass team in the first round only to get embarrassed, and let's be honest, it was so bad, it's not fair to the word "embarrassed") by USC - all with the best freshman in 40 years and the best college player in 20

- the Mavericks will go out without as much as a peep to a team that only made the playoffs the last game of the season

- I won't even count the Stars since they weren't expected to fare as well as the three above .

Did winnig the national championship cost us selling our sports soul to the sports devil?”

Welcome to the family

BevoisaSoxFan: “I think Argentina could really hang 4 or 5 goals on us if they play their starters against our younger guys. Carlito Tevez and Messi will have a field day against an inexperienced defense.

Worst of all, my future Argentinean father-in-law will say we have "no cojones."
Then again, if we pull an upset and win he could fly into a rage and attack me in the "cojones". Tough call.”

Not perfect, but better than Jeanne Dixon

HornMafia, in January: “What might happen between now and September 1, 2007:

-- A NBA title may reside in Texas for the first time or again. YES

-- Tiger Woods may or may not have completed another Tiger Slam...or a Grand Slam. No

-- A Byron Nelson champion will be crowned in April, and the FoLM will crown a new Byron Nelson Drinking Champion.

-- Some of us might have new jobsYES, new kids, adopted from African countries) YES*, new citiesYES, new girlfriendsYES, come out of the closet.

-- LMFZ might have a new owner by then. NO

-- We'll already be sick of hearing about the 2008 presidential election.

-- The Cowboys might have a new coach YES, will have spent training camp in San Antonio and will have a new first round bust NO.

-- I could be living in a different place.

-- Chay and Arch will have worn their seersucker suits.

-- We'll have 60 days of 100 degree days under our belts. NO

-- Kevin Durant will be getting ready for training camp for his new NBA team. YES

-- One of the FoLM very well may have died at Arch's bachelor party.

-- We'll have defeated the BOFZ in flag football....again.

-- The Texas Rangers will have lost at least 70 games...again.

-- I will have drafted the future busts of the new NFL season for my fantasy team. YES

-- The FoLM will have spent approximately $9950.00 in bar tabs.

-- I will have spent $400 for crappy football tickets.” YES

A day that will live in infamy

Best Display of Tailgate-induced Drunkeness

Nominees: Jeremy falling in the creek, Pope coining the new tailgate catchphrase, Ernst chasing off the bum, Drew telling the KA's to clean up their shit, Ernest puking on the shower curtain, eligible since we just found out this year it was him), my brother doing keg stands

...and the Wheeler goes to: Seriously? Jeremy fell into piss creek. This is now the "Jeremy in Piss Creek Award."

Um…

UTwiz, on Wade Phillips’ hiring: “Here is what the Cowboys needed this off season:

a. A head coach that this team, both players AND fans) can rally around, who can breath new life into this thing before we waste all of these pro bowlers' careers

b. An offensive coordinator who can not only cut through defensives, but develop Tony R. into a HOF'er

c. A defensive guru who can take a talented defense that underachieves and take them to the next level, focussing on getting pressure on the QB

Initial thought is that we only received ONE out of the three. One. And it was letter C.

Yippie.”

So did ticket prices bottom out at halftime?

Markaholic: “Apparently Texas/TCU is a hot ticket. People on OB's talking about paying $200/seat. One guy said it's supposedly the 50th most expensive ticket this year in college football.

They are preseason #22. That makes them higher than everyone else we play with the exception of OU and Nebraska. This should be our third hardest game of the year.

Looking like a much tougher W than when originally announced.

Get yer tickets now!”

Txlonghorn47: “A tougher W? Why just beacuse the seats are going for $200 a game.”
Bucharest: “If those ticket prices hit $300, we're totally screwed.”

Best idea of the year that unfortunately didn’t materialize

Hornmafia: “The Whataburger Fundraiser goes like this:

-- The participant, Eric) has to stay in a Whataburger of his choice for 24 hours.

-- There will be a base rate, $300-500, we haven't agreed upon that yet)....with a certain percentage going towards Eric and the rest going to the trailer.

-- Eric, and the tailgate) gets another monetary sum when he performs certain functions, including taking orders behind the counter, cleaning the bathrooms, cooking burgers, etc.

-- We'll of course have members of this board and LMFZ Tailgate friends contribute money towards the cause.

-- We should probably come up with a donation that Eric has to make if he gets thrown out before the 24 hours expires.

-- We should probably come up with a lump sum if any news crews go to Whataburger to show Eric.”

Drew: “And he has to live blog it.”

EDavis: “Some of the notable side bets were:

Order/taste at least one of everything on the menu.
Play the same song on the jukebox 10-15 times in a row, bonus if I can get staff to sing with me)
Take a counter order.
Take a drive through order.
Clean the bathroom.
Cook my own meal.
Refill the ice machines.
Take out the trash.
Clean the tables.
Refill all ketchup packets.”

Yep

Makaveli: “Let me just jump in here and say this.

It's certainly possible that we just played a bad game. In fact that is far more likely than the alternative which says Texas and Ark State are nearly equal football teams.

Everyone wants Texas to compromise– understandably– but what are the rest of the schools offering the Longhorns? It’s Texas with the groundbreaking network. It’s Texas with the most to lose.

Good Grief.

that took some serious research time.

good going!

I will do what I did at the conclusion of "The Wicked" play that I attended this summer and yell BRAVO....BRAVO....BRAVO.

I embarrassed everyone with me b/c everyone around me turned and looked at me as if I was an idiot. I didn't care. When you witness a good play you always yell BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO at the top of your lungs. Everyone is supposed to know that.

I couldn't find it, matt, though I did find several posts alluding to it.

BTW... we apparently have a character limit, so the final few posts were omitted... here they are:

Yep

Makaveli: “Let me just jump in here and say this.

It's certainly possible that we just played a bad game. In fact that is far more likely than the alternative which says Texas and Ark State are nearly equal football teams.

What I find disturbing is not a close win in the opener.

What bothers me is that the excuses are prepackaged -- Prepared in advance like Democratic Party talking points.

So what is Mack doing this week, after he gets through recruiting, and writing personal letters to Lloyd Carr and others).... Is he compiling the stat sheets and going over the talking points, making sure that everyone knows the excuses in case we get beat ?

It sure seems like that's what he does. It's that softness that bothers me. It is likely contagious. In fact I think we usually win almost every game in spite of it.”

Best personal attack of the year

Smooth Longhorn: “No offense, bull, and I think it is widely known that I am one of the most politically-correct individuals on here), but go f**k yourself. If I want a Crimson-colored assessment of the team that I live and die with I'd post on a Sooners board, and I only use "Sooners board" right now out of respect to Peabody and Barry, lest it would be "Land-thiefs and Cheaters" Zone.com)

While I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule of paying your own players to evaluate your rivals that have kicked your ass for the past 2 years, I suggest you spend more time dissecting why your team choked on an engagement ring in a BCS Bowl game against a WACk team.

You just concentrate on getting Corky and the rest of the Life Goes On crew ready for October 6th, and we'll worry about our linebackers, thank you very ******* much.

Again, no disrespect meant, I understand that your only using 3.2% of your brain up there....Smooth”

Possibly the greatest thing ever posted on this site

Stonie Clark, via Drew: “As a 17 year old freshman, I remember guys like Lance Gunn and Peter Gardere standing up in the locker room talking about how big a rivalry Oklahoma was for 'us'. They talked about fans throwing things at you and spitting on you. Little old ladies talking like sailors and giving the horns down sign two inches from your face. I remember thinking, "I just want to play some football. Make a name for myself and these rivalries belong to the school, not me." By my junior year at UT, I was as much a part of this rivalry game in my heart and soul as any Longhorn before me and was about to become associated with it for the rest of my life.

1994. Cotton Bowl. Red River Rivalry. 17-10 Texas. 4th and Goal. Ball on the Texas 1 yard line. I had heard the stories of Peter the Great. Cash, with the one handed touchdown catch. Bubba Jacques scooping up a fumble and returning it for a touchdown in a tight TX-OU game. When the center snapped the ball, their line zone blocked right. It was we refer to as a misdirection play. I was able to see Thompson handing the ball to James Allen on a statue of liberty play. Immediately I changed direction and headed toward the ball carrier. My teammate, Robert Reed had forced James Allen back inside and as he reached for the endzone, I hit him. It was a trainwreck. That God for making me a train. I rolled about 340 at the time and being run over was never a concern of mine. In some of the pictues of the play, my feet were actually in the endzone when I made contact.The hit was pure and the celebration started.

Cotton Spryer. Peter the Great. Bubba Jacques. Kerry Cash... Stonie Clark.

We all see Oklahoma has some vulnerabilities, and hopefully this week our coaching staff was able to identify some of those and put together a game plan that puts our guys in a position to win. That's all that can really be asked of the coaching staff. The rest has to be the guys wanting to be great. Wanting to be remembered. Have they dreamed and visualized making plays in this game? Do they want it so badly that the tears stream from their faces as they walk down the tunnel? Are they screaming inside because of the liquid fire running through their veins and up their spine? Folks, I save exaggerations for more important things like penis size and what age I actually was when I started losing my hair. This is real. This is TX-OU.”

Inconceivable!

Mr. Peabody, on AD’s career day: “He had 361 all-purpose yards today. 3rd best game in NFL history. Doesn't get any better than that.”
HornMafia: “Apparently two people did better than that.”

Best drunk post made immediately after a 4th quarter comeback win

Bucharest: “wow, just wow!!!! Maybe I'm just drunk(and by "maybe" I mean I'm writing this this in the bathroom I just puked in), but I'm willing to forgive the obvious in a win like that, and mostly due to the previously non-existent guts it took to make that happen!!!

On a side note, if I as gay, I would bang the shit out of Ryan Bailey.....I'm just sayin'???”

I actually just did a "read all posts" on MBK271, going back before June 20th when I found a reference to the gorilla incident.

And just clicking on that gave me that.

But actually if you look at the date at the top of an individual post, and click on the little Image, the address above starts with that post.

Everyone wants Texas to compromise– understandably– but what are the rest of the schools offering the Longhorns? It’s Texas with the groundbreaking network. It’s Texas with the most to lose.
