I am far far too excited for my Citizens first friendly tomorrow morning in South Africa. How many strikers will we see? 4? 5? More?

Mike Georger said...

I looked at the Champions League draw a bit ago whilst hammered and I swear it was titled the 'Champions Path' and 'Trail of Tears' or something for the two different draws.

jjf3 said...

@MG: LOL

Mike Georger said...

I should note, I'm still hammered.

jjf3 said...

ditto

APPARENTLY eating 1400 calories a day then drinking 9.0% beer isn't the smartest thing to do. Who knew?

jjf3 said...

I'm tempted to dare you to a diet challenge, except I know you'll accept...and win...

I'm trying to find a 50/50 balance between food and beer, accepting the multiple liters of water necessary....

Mike Georger said...

1400 is when I'm feeling frisky and cheat. Most of this summer I go with less than 1000, yet still manage to out-bench everyone at my gym. I have a uh... alot of supplies to work off of, apparently.

I limit myself to drinking on Friday nights, and keep it high class beer.

jjf3 said...

I go with <1000 and beer for the rest, and my version of a "workout" is mowing my lawn and taking stairs two steps at a time, and drinking on days that end in "Y"...

ie, I will die soon...I have the physique of a tennis player who stopped playing 10 years ago. Which would be what I am, though with a bad taste for beer...

Mike Georger said...

hahaha nice. I have the physique of Casey Hampton with a serious case of skin discoloration. I'm gonna die soon too no doubt. Good luck collecting my student loans, assholes.


Earlier tonight one of my friends who is a LFC fan asked me about Alonso, on Facebook, and I responded with a 1500 word response. My life is meaningless.

jjf3 said...

I am (actually) laughing out loud right now MG, and I look forward to buying you a beer this weekend...

Feel free to insult Rovers, so I can find some reason to write a 1500-word response to anyone...

Mike Georger said...

You're coming to Bodymore?

I've got nothing but love for Rovers, they've never hurt me and I LOVE their new away kits (the all white and red, brilliant). Plus I'm a big Warnock fan.

Though I'd like to shove Fat Sam's headset up his ass.

jjf3 said...

Um, fuck and yes? And, yeah, I don't know that we've ever hurt anyone (excepting 95, BITCHES!!!!!!!!!)...

Can't see the love for the away kit, though its not bad....

Warnock and Nelsen are the balls...(and I love that World Soccer Shop got Nelsen's name spelled wrong ALL FRICKING SEASON...)

As for BFS, I just like that we'll stay up, even if its not pretty. And, Holy Crap, we better be safe before April, because our run-in is sadistic, to put it nicely...

If I may interrupt this love in between Georger and JJJJJJF3, I'd like to say that 'Flightplan' is an awful, terrible film.

But, Its Always Sunny begins soon, so yay.

Mike Georger said...

My money was on PR to make a smartass remark about that exchange. As gay as it may have been, you my friend are the one who just watched a Jodie Foster movie.

jjf3 said...

I have no idea why I'm awake, EFFFFFFF, so I'll leave the night to you...

though I'll also buy you a beer next weekend anyways...

enjoy!

EbullientFatalist said...

When I was reading the comments, I kept humming, 'Doobie dooobie dooo...'

Thanks for the offer JJF3, but I will not be in Baltimore, unfortunately. I'll be in Charleston at a beach house for a week, because I'll never stop being a frat-douche.

Mike Georger said...

Ahem. WHORE! /Ahem.

sven said...

EF, where are you staying? Folly, Sullivan's, IOP?

Teeknuts said...

You down with IOP?

EbullientFatalist said...

sven: Folly. Nice place on Ashley Ave. You familiar with Charleston?

EbullientFatalist said...

Open question: anyone ever use Megaupload to back-up files? If so, was it worth it?

Mike Georger said...

I've used it to transfer stuff to people when the files were too big to send over gmail. Are they charging now?

I would say drop forty bucks on a small external hard drive.

ü75 said...

EF: I would have gone with Sullivan's myself, if only to stalk the love gov. Of course, that would be if someone else is paying. If I'm paying (and not staying home), then Folly it is.
