The team everyone thought would be a bust continues to win and win convincingly.  Even in the 9 losses Phoenix has only been dominated 1 time…against the champs…the dumb Heat…Plumlee threw down some thunder tonight…not sure if you saw it but here it is…

Ahhhhh…Ka—-BOOM!!!

whatever, not like it matters but what does matter is this Suns team is gelling…no longer are we tanking for one of the top 4 picks…The Suns will compete this year…we will make the playoffs…and we will be dangerous…So Say We All (sorry just watched some BSG tonight)

College Game Of The Week

December 7, 2013

stanfordasu

 

Pac-12 title game, Rose Bowl on the line…ASU’s only conference loss was at Stanford on September 21st.  ASU 7-0 at home.  All shaping up for the Sun Devils to not just win today but win big.  And that’s why you should be cautious.  Matchup and momentum are ALL with ASU, so they’re the feel good pick.  However, Stanford does not fear them at all.  A dominant win in their first matchup will give Stanford the confidence to go into Tempe tonight and get it done.  Can the Devils avoid getting caught up in the moment and play the style of football they’ve been playing the last 3 months?  Obviously remains to be seen but something tells me their run ends tonight and Stanford takes this one by a touchdown.  So as much as I want to pick ASU I just can’t…Stanford +3

Kobe Back On Sunday

December 7, 2013

ESPN:  Kobe Bryant will make his season debut for the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday against the Toronto Raptors at Staples Center.

It will mark his first game since tearing his left Achilles nearly eight months ago.

D’Antoni was confident that the long layoff would not affect Bryant’s impact on the game.

“He’ll be a dominant player,” D’Antoni said. “He can play any way. He can play below the rim, above the rim, beside the rim. I mean, the guy can play any way. He’ll figure out how he’ll be effective and then he’ll come at you with everything he’s got. That’s been his M.O., and I think that’s what he’ll do.”

Love the optimism Mike, I really do.  I also get that you’re the head coach and part of your job is to pump his return up as much as you can, but lets slow down just a little bit.  You HOPE he’ll be a dominant player.  Like I said in a previous blog there is no way to know for sure which Kobe we’re gonna see on Sunday and going forward.  Could he be his usual dominant self? Absolutely.  Could he also be a shell of the Kobe we’re used to? Yup.

I personally think Kobe’s return will spark the Lakers and bringing him back against a team the Lakers should be able to beat without him makes sense.  But I’m not willing to declare him the savior of the season just yet.  I need to see him play, I need to see him cut on that left leg in game situations.  I need to see the explosiveness is still there.  If it is then yeah Kobe will be the Kobe of old, but forgive me for not listening to a head coach that makes a habit out of cheerleading for his players.  How many times did we hear D’Antoni gush over his players in NY?  Literally every week, so lets see how Kobe does on Sunday and go from there.

P.S. Probably the most anti-climactic video of all time

P.P.S. The fact that my 500th blog on The Loon was about Kobe and The Lakers depresses the hell out of me

Take A Look At This Whiney Brit That Bought A Picture Of An XBOX 1 On EBAY For $750

December 5, 2013

brit

IGN:  Nottingham, UK resident Peter Clatworthy, 19, mistakenly purchased a photo of an Xbox One via eBay in an unfortunate seller scam. He spent £450 (nearly $750) expecting to receive a Day One Edition, but instead received a faded, printed photo of the console’s box.

Clatworthy told the Nottingham Post the seller had “written on the back of it, ‘thank you for your purchase.’ I was fuming.” As a regular user of the auction site, Clatworthy didn’t expect the seller — whose feedback was universally positive, which is reassuring for potential buyers — to mislead him. “”It said ‘photo’ and I was in two minds, but I looked at the description and the fact it was in the right category made me think it was genuine.”

“”It said ‘photo””  Case fucking closed dummy.  You knew before you bid that it was just a photo…what, did you magically hope the picture would materialize into a real Xbox during shipping?  It says in plain english…wait, they still speak english over there right?  I only ask because they use some weird “L” looking thing before their dollar amounts and they constantly get the amount wrong…I know this because an editor ALWAYS comes in later and corrects them…in this case adding (nearly $750)…I don’t get why the editor doesn’t remove the original mistake but I’m assuming it’s to spare the authors feelings…funny country.  Anyway back to dumb fuck.  It says it’s a photo…I don’t care if it’s in the home and gardening category, photo means photo.  So to complain after receiving what is inarguably a tremendous looking picture I feel is a bit disingenuous and not in the spirit of Ebay.  Quite frankly I am appalled at Peter’s behavior.

Does This Look Like The Face Of A Man Chased Through A Kohl’s By A Topless Woman Who Caught Him Peeping On Her In The Dressing Room?

December 5, 2013

peep

TheBlazeA Kansas woman had her privacy violated while trying on clothes in a Kohl’s dressing room this week — and she wasn’t about to just let it go.

Jeanne Ouellette says she caught a peeping Tom videotaping her with his cellphone through a gap in the wall of the dressing room. Rather than freezing in horror, the topless woman instead chased after the man.

Ouellette told KCTV that she followed the creep, shouting “Stop! Help me!” along the way.

“I just screamed and chased him topless through the store. I know I shouldn’t be chasing someone … I was just enraged. I was at a store in a very private place, and I was enraged and I wanted to get the phone,” she added.

Ok we all know peeping toms are gonna peep and Jeremy Bradley here looks like one victorious peeping tom.  He started this venture hoping to just see some stationary titties through a small crack in the wall, what he got was bouncing titties on full display.  We call that an upgrade in the business.  How about the balls on Jeanne though? And by balls I mean elevated sense of self…she chased him because she wanted to get the phone back…umm…why?  What did she think Jeremy was going to do with the video?  Upload it to facebook or vimeo or vine or something?? Listen Jeanne, there is a code amongst us, I mean them, peeping toms, we (FUCK!) THEY don’t share this shit.  This would have stayed exclusively in Jeremy’s personal jerk off stash, and c’mon how do you say no to a smile like that?  Let him bust to your tits, trust me he’s the only one who wants to see them.

The Loon’s Top 5 Winter Drinks

December 5, 2013

CT-DINING-1205-BILLY-SUNDAY

 

ChicagoTribune:  Just after 1 a.m. on a recent chilly Friday, I’m seated at the center of a gorgeous parquet bar counter, perusing a collection of rare, decades-old spirits. And I’m sipping a cocktail through a jumbo, candy-striped straw stuck into a frosted milk bottle.

Such is the dichotomy of an evening spent at Logan Square’s Billy Sunday, the precise-yet-not-stuffy neighborhood bar from Matthias Merges. The bar feels equally at home serving an adult take on milk and cookies as it is exploring the subtle variations of Italy’s fernet producers of the last century.

NOPE! Sorry to Chicago’s Billy Sunday but they are WAY over thinking the winter adult beverage.  You don’t need gimmicks like frosted milk bottles and candy striped straws.  Sure maybe The Box Lunch is a great tasting drink, who’s to say?  But when the weather is frigid and the days are short these are the only 5 drinks you’ll need to hibernate with until spring.

5.  The Hot Toddy (Made With Crown Royal Only)

hot toddy

 

Gay name, delicious drink.  The Hot Toddy should be an absolute staple of winter drinking.  It’s the perfect after dinner drink or breakfast drink, it’s a versatile mother fucker.  Has all the great holiday spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and it’s hot so it’s perfect in cold weather.  Only draw back to the Toddy is can you really see yourself downing 10 of them during a night out?  Of course you can’t, you probably can’t even see yourself ordering one…but made at home watching a bowl game there are few things better.

NY E-Cig Smokers Not Going Down Without A Fight!!

December 5, 2013

120413VaporSmokers2wf

 

NYPost:  Vape ’em if you got ’em.

Smokers opposed to a proposal to snuff electronic cigarettes from public places filled a City Council hearing room Wednesday and puffed away.

With no law on the books to prevent them from electronically lighting up at City Hall or anyplace else, protesters defiantly powered up at the seat of city government, making their point under a cloud of vapor smoke.

“The facts are that this isn’t smoking,” said Jesse Gaddis, a representative from Brooklyn-based Bedford Slims, an e-cigarette company, as he exhaled wasps of white mist during his testimony. “This is vapor.”

I started smoking Parliament Lights when I was 12 and I was smoking a pack a day by the time I was 16,” said Illona Orshansky, 29, of Fort Greene, who owns Vapor Lounge NY in Williamsburg. “I quit 10 months ago. I vape a tobacco flavor. It tastes like a Parliament.”

“E-cigarettes have the potential to be a public health miracle,” said Dr. Gilbert Ross, executive director of the American Council on Science and Health.

He cautioned that banning e-cigs could encourage people to go back to real cigarettes.

Lot of blogs about smoking today.  Well this one will be short, but what citizens in LA took laying down with no lube the good people of NY are dishing back at these fucking out of touch legislators.  Just storming city hall filling the chamber with vapor right in the council’s face.  Love it.  And as a parliament light smoker myself I need to know what Illona is vaping and I needed to know yesterday.  My main problem with E-Cigs is that I hate the tobacco flavored ones, so I usually go with something fruity (just like me) like grape or vanilla or something.  If I can find an e-cig that tastes like a p-funk then I’m outta the regular ciggy game tomorrow.

Realistically though NY will pass this ban just like LA because regular citizens have zero power anymore in America.

Oh and Ms. Flash Vapor with the green hair up there?  Nope
