NFL Pick Em's Week 2


Welcome back my friends for yet another weeks worth of football picks a trained seal could,And quite possibly may have made!!



Not a horrible week for the ol picks last week.As usual the damn Giants(Andre's) let us down.. But there's always this week right?






                  Minnesota(1-0) At Pittsburgh(1-0)  1 PM FOX

Either the Browns have improved that much, Or the Steelers were not playing at a 100%, Because no reason a team with that much talent keeps a team like the Browns in a game till mid 4th quarter!!

That being said, JC on the left has it right, Run the ball!! You have 2 good backs,Feed them the ball, Then open up the passing game.

The Vikings are coming in after a huge week 1 win against the Saints, And the same question could be asked  here, Are the Vikings that good, Or are the Saints that bad?

In honor of our friend on the left, Second verse same as the 1st..
Final Score, Purple Guys 24- Mighty McBeams 36.






Cleveland(0-1) Baltimore(1-0) 1PM CBS

Let's make this short and simple shall we, Any time a team plays the Ravens, We use our patented ATPBAW System(Any Team Playing Baltimore Always wins)

Final Score, Cleveland Show 24- Rat Birds 14.








Green Bay(1-0) At  Atlanta (1-0)  8:30 PM NBC

The rematch from last years NFC Title game, Both teams coming off week 1 wins,This could be the game of the week, And a must watch!!

Final Score, Cheese Heads 42- Dirty Birds 38.



Dallas(1-0) At Denver(1-0) 4:25 PM FOX

I honestly have zero care about this game.. Well other then Demaryius Thomas having a good game!.



Final Score, Jerry's Boys 24- Orange Horses 30.






Detroit (1-0) At New York(Andre's)(0-1)
8:30 PM Monday ESPN

What to say, What to say? Oh, I got it..The Giants really suck,And I'm not sure they can turn this around for a couple more weeks..

Going with my gut instinct on this ..

Final Score, Andre's 21- Blue Lions 42!!





And there you have it folks, Yet another week of nowhere near thought out, Non scientific professional football picks.. As always, If you think you can do better, Prove it!! Until next time,Please don't forget to tip your waiter,And Don't eat the meat..It's human..

This game could be played in Tampa, During the hurricane.. It wouldn't make a difference on the outcome...

Seattle(O-0) At Green Bay(0-0)

4:25 FOX.

Memories

The last 2 weeks I have been packing, Preparing to move to another place, But as I clean, And pack,And go through things..I get taken back in time looking at all the things I have rediscovered .




There's the concerts I have been to since I moved here, Crosby,Stills,And Young at Hershey Amphitheater,When it really was just a bunch of lawn chairs on a parking lot, I guess they moved it to a nicer area later on, But that night was like I was watching in Central Park..

Chicago(With Peter Cetera back again) Played for damn near 2 hours.. The headliners? They played about 50 minutes..But what a 50 minutes it was!!

Def Leppard at Nissan Pavilion.Tickets were free(Love radio contests lol) Actually had the BEST seats I have ever had at any concert!! I remember who I went with, And remember most of the music, Yet another great concert, And I know some of you will think I am crazy..But they really did play well live..

Then we get to wrestling.. Ironically I found a Great American Bash ticket from when I lived in Butler,At the Civic Arena(Brought to you by Schaffer Beer) Another Great American Bash stop in Baltimore(Brought to you by Schlitz lol)

Stubs from the Capital Center,Mariner Arena,And what ever names that arena in Baltimore has had..
Stubs from Waldorf,Hagerstown,,Boonsboro.Shane and I and or Rodney spent a good deal of time . hitting up the WCW/WWF  and all the Indies we could find!

Pirate games, 1 Of my all time favorite games ever, Opening Day 1995.. The near riot during the game Rodney and I holding up a Slam O Rama sing lol.. But the best part of that night.... Meeting Jim Leyland after the game!! As he singed a baseball for me, He asked where we were from.. We told him Hagerstown, Md,And he said..And I quote..I wish we had 54,000 of you guys!!

My last trip to Three Rivers, Jim Leyland's last home game. Every time he made a change, The crowd would stand and cheer.. He gave his jacket to a kid by the dugout!!Bitter sweet listening to his post game comments leaving the burgh that night!!

My first and only trip to PNC Park.. The day I was let go with a company I had been with over 5 years.. The trip was planned, And Thankfully Shawn pushed me to go, Even though he said, Bob, I know you've had a rough morning,And we can always go another day.. I knew I was going, No matter  what!!

It was a great trip, And we had a great time. Glad I never decided not to go that day!!

And of course with the good.. You get the bad lol.. Pictures of ex's Not all bad.. But trust me...Seems more bad then good lol...

I've been in this place for a good chunk of my life, And No real sadness leaving the place, It will always be the same place.. The memories will move with me and be held forever...

 Next time we talk the headquarters will be moved,That's it for now..Office is closed, Moose out front should have told you!!

Battlin Bob's Summer Guide 2017

Yes, It's that time again folks, Summer is upon us..Before you hit the beaches,And walk the boardwalk..Here a few things you need to remember..







Man Buns...

If you look like the clown on the left, Please just shoot yourself.. You are a poser, Shockingly you don't have a beard also, Plus at least 1 tattoo..Whoever came up with this Uber douche look,But they also need shot, Stabbed, Set on fire And buried!!!This has to be the stupidest looking thing I have ever seen.. And I lived in the 80's !!!
Just cut the damn thing off, No one wants to see that nasty bag o hair on top of your head. Just get rid of it..



Way too tight clothing..

If you have to jump off a dresser to get in them, You need to get rid of them! No one.. Man or Woman EVER needs to wear anything like this... EVER!! If you ask someone do these shorts,Jeans Whatever make you look like they fit ok(And this is coming from a fat guy) Get rid of them NOW!!!












No pictures needed for the following..

When going to a baseball game, Or any sporting event, At least know something about it.. Nothing worse then hearing this over your shoulder..
 So what does that guy out there on the left, Way out there by that wall, What does he do? Well genius, That is a left fielder, And that is where he plays. They are called position players for a reason.And it's not a sexual thing.. Imagine hitting the ball  to the left reverse cowboy... HIiiiioooooooo.

Bragging about seeing summer block busters...

In case you didn't realize, It's 2017.. Everyone will probably see that hot summer movie sooner then later.. You telling people the ending is just being a dick.. And a world class dick.. Just say it's awesome, And hope you see it soon.. Don't replay the entire fucking movie line by line!!


Summer Driving

These rules actually apply to most of the year, , Assholes are out in droves in the warm weather.. A very easy way to identify a class of common douches..Look for the BMW emblem , And I mean on anything..Cars, Tshirts, Even douche bags with a tattoo... Run don't walk away if you see these assholes...For some reason they think they are in Germany.. And that doesn't bode well for some.....


And there you have it folks.. A few of the things to be aware of during the upcoming summer months... Follow these simple steps, And you could save a life...Yours.....

This And That June 2017

Welcome back!! I promise I have been trying to get more content on here, But long week at work have derailed things a bit.. I am actually considering some sort of a ...gasp..Podcast .. And I am not talking about changing the format of this little ol blog, Just something to mmix it up once in awhile..Stay tuned..



I want to start this by saying the following, And it's a damn shame I have to clarify this.. I and every friends I know,Are not racist... Black, White, Whatever you are, If you do wrong, There should be actions!

Let's start with the incident that happened Friday night on Real Time with Bill Maher..


Hopefully you watched this video.. Here's my issue... I hear the N word in movies, Music, And ther places.. Let say for the record...The ONLY people saying that word, That word that is SO offensive, Are the people who bitch about it being used??????

I mean what the fuck already......You are going to preach to whoever is around about how you... Were oppressed .


My problem with this whole thing is this. People are calling for HBO to cancel Maher's show.. Putting people out of work. Why?? What if Sam  Jackson had said it? Because I heard that exact word the following day .. I know it's a movie, But Jackson said the word... It's used in Rap songs, Black comedians use it in their material...

It's a word that is used every day.. But if someone other then a black person says it... Look out!! Maybe it;s time to actually work on the people using it.. Rap singers, Comedians..Hold them accountable for that word.. You wanna show me that word shouldn't be used, Then start pressing for the same thing if a black guy said it....

We are all on this planet together, Can't we act like we all want work together?

TV You Should Be Watching

I am so happy to see we may be finally getting away from all reality television!!

The last couple years has given us a bunch of good shows, But you may be missing out on the great ones!!





 Designated Survivor, ABC Wednesday 10PM

If you are watching this show,Wise choice..If you haven't, Catch up now! The show starts out a bit slow, But picks up fast! You know the general idea of the show, But the everyday goings on will keep you watching! Great cast, Great writing,







 Brockmire Wednesday 10PM IFC

Next up, May be my favorite show.Brockmire is a respected announcer, Until the day he walks in on his wife, Having an orgy.. On their anniversary!!! What follows is Brockmire having a meltdown live! The show picks him coming home 10 years later.Starting over in  Small town in Pennsylvania.. It's only on episode 4 right now, And IFC shows this show a ton! Catch up and enjoy the laughs!!And anyone who knows my former hometown, Will understand why episode 4 may be my favorite!!




Mr Robot.     USA On break as of now

This is the show you MUST keep up with, If you are 1 of these people who just watches a show, It's not for you. If you follow a great storyline, Watch this show!!Elliot is a hacker, And through him, You meet his"circle" Things are not always what they seem, So this is the reason you need to stay focused!! Of all the shows listed, This is the longest running(2 Seasons, Third coming soon), It has been hailed by critics as a breakthrough.. USA Has this show on demand, So catch up before season 3 starts!!



Lethal Weapon   FOX Season 2 TBA

I'm sure most of you have seen the movie series, And yes, This is the same premise... No, It's not Danny Glover and Mel Gibson, But Damon Wayans  as Murtaugh  And Clayne Crawford as Riggs.. Yes the show is different then the movie, But movies are only 2 or 3 hours. So you have to have plenty of story to tell on a tv show.. This actually follows Riggs more then the movie, Showing different sides, Talking to the police psychologist.Trying to find out who killed his wife. It's also on break right now, But FOX has it on demand also.As the case for a couple of these shows, It starts a bit slow, But picks up rather quickly.


 Archer  FXX Wednesday 10PM

This is why DVR's where invented!! So many great shows on the same night? Well just watch the replay on the dvr!!

If you are not watching Archer, I suggest it.If you have anywhere near the same humor as I do, You will love this show!!!

You do have quite a bit of catching up to do, Season 8 is underway, But you will not regret binge watching this show!! This may is one of my top 3 shows on right now!! Trust me, You will be glad you started watching!



Other shows you can catch anytime, Top Gear on BBC America, You don't have to be a gear head to watch, It's just good! Colony,On USA, Which doesn't come back for a new season until next year(Trust me,You'll need the time to catch up, And understand it).. And who could forget Last Man On Earth.. Even though he is not even the last man, Let alone the last person!! But still a great show..




I hope that if you're not watching any of these shows, You start watching.. I can say that 3/4 of these shows you will thank me!! Until next time. Rule#1 to Fight Club is that there is NO Fight Club!

Where Has The Time Gone?

Hey, Someone changed the look? It is a special occasion!
Yes, It was 9 years(And 1 day) Ago we started this tiny little blog.. It was meant to be ,Well about sports.

But over the years, It turned in to  more.More funny articles, More covering sports, But in a satirical way.Yes I love my teams,And I am very loyal to said teams,But You can still be a fan, And make a joke at the same time.

A lot has changed over 9 years, I have moved on to another job(or 3 or 4 ) Since we started, Gained valuable insight,And weight (Ha ha),And I think grown up a bit more.. I mean it is 9 years..A lot has happened .


But we won't get in to all that today, No we are here to thank YOU, Yes, That's right..You,The loyal..VERY loyal 3 or 4 who have probably not read every post, But you've covered most of them.

Without you,I wouldn't be writing this today, I could have waited till the weekend, But I figured if you take the time to read them, I may as well write some occasionally ...

 I want to thank a few people,
I have to start with my old buddy Shawn, Without him telling me about the idea,And reading his blog,
http://thoughtsofrs.blogspot.com/  (Never hurts to give free publicity lol)  I realized this is something I may want to do,And enjoy..And man I have enjoyed it!! Thank you Shawn for always plugging this little ol blog, Even though I don't post as much as I used to! I know we don't see each other much these days, And that's another thing that has to be fixed! But I always know, If I need advice, Or just someone to vent to, I can count on you! Thanks again!!

Ryan.. He was another person who, Even though he only has posted a few times on here, Has had more to do with some of the things I have written! Back when we were working together, Ryan and I would be driving down the highway, And those stories.. If those were ever printed, It would be epic lol..Ryan you still have control over my little ol blog(Well at least some lol) Feel free to post anytime you like!! I said the same thing to Shawn, But we all must get together and do a podcast, Or something 1 day soon!!

Then there are the loyals.. The ones who ask me, When are you doing another post about this, Or how much you enjoyed my ripping apart of ANY Baltimore team.. I hope I can get on a more regular schedule about posting now! As always, It's about what YOU want,If you have an idea, Please let me know.The worst I can do is say , I don't know much about it, Or ask for your help..When I see a record day for a post about football picks, It means a lot!!

Play us out Fred,Barney and the gang! Until next time, You can only have 1 shoe on a foot at a time!!
