MNF Live Blog 10/9

Monday, October 09, 2006

I'm doing a pseudo live-blog tonight. Not the normal thing you'll get from me, but I'll post from time to time in this spot during the Ravens/Broncos game (you know....when Tony K gets on Joey T.) Post in the comments and join along.

Okay two things.....first, Tony K. there were a lot of sheep in Denver, but ESPN showed a Ram....good editing. And Joe described McNair's game as a form of "Street Ball". You're a dirty racist Joe....I hate you.

8:42- The Liquor does you no good on kickoffs BJ Sams....

8:52-"Thank you for explaining hard counts....next can you explain offsides and the 2-point conversion."- TK on JT ......and we're off!

9:00- Matt Stover hits.....And........

3-0 Bal-TI-more

Not to be a negative Nelly here....but this game is boring already.

9:06- First voice crack as TK complains about his Fantasy team.....Oh no Bill Simmons!!!! Go crazy!

For some reason Bart Scott is just introducing the Ravens D now. The first quarter is almost over.

9:11- Sorry Tony K...your Fantasy team is screwed. Plummer with the pick.

9:20- "The most successful QB he's had is Trent Dilfer, and he left the team"- TK...actually he didn't leave they forced him out.

9:30- "Denver's offensive line has the least weight in the league. Well now they are playing a larger defense and the zone blocking just isn't going to get their zone blocking going"- JT, You ass! They are the smallest in the league....how much to D-Tackles weigh? It's almost guaranteed that someone will outweigh them. Now that every team in the league outweighs them how do they consistently put up 1,000 yard rushers? That's why you're an idiot.

JAMES FUCKING DENTON IN THE BOOTH???? COME ON ESPN.......

9:33- "He woke up from a coma just in time to join us in the booth"- MT
"I hope we get to more coma questions right after this play"- TK
"I bet you do Tony."- James Denton

9:36- They said they were coming back with James Denton but I think they kicked him out of the booth. Best move all night "Leader".......oh shit, he's still there!!!! "Rate the women in order 1 thru 5"- TK. This shit is just stupid....I'm sorry.

Primal Quest....James Denton is the voice? Some endurance contest. I expect to see a link on Deaspin tomorrow.

"My feelings aren't hurt Tony....I realize you are long asleep at this hour"- James Denton
"Tony's fantasy here.....James Denton in the booth"- Mike Tirico, Okay I don't care who you are (even me) that's fucking funny. Mike Tirico +5!

9:43- Tony! Tony! Question time:......Who is more at fault here if the Ravens lose tonight T.O. or A-Rod? Hahahaha great question.

Tony K....is really really quiet. Very quiet.

McNair gets hurt almost every single play....I just don't understand how he stays in there. If there's any game he gets knocked out it's this one.

9:51- "From deep in the whole at shortstop."- JT with the baseball references....keep them coming Joe.

They are hitting hard as hell in this game. I take it back...I'm into this game. (Betting helps. Trust me.)

Whoops forget to note a score....Denver got a FG it's 3-3, but you have a TV and you already know that.

9:59- McNair goes to Clarence Moore?!?!?! on third down? PICKLE! C.Bailey. 1st of the year for the Broncos.

HALFTIME.....3-3. WHOOOOO HOOOOO! We got a barn burner here, and we've got Berman at halftime! Where the hell are you??

10:17- So someone decided to talk about the Baby Jesus in the comments. Go there please and check it out. I don't care what the rest of you say in the comments tonight....this is #1 tomorrow. TRY AND BEAT THIS!!!! "A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.".........What's up now commenters!!!!!

10:28- getinthere69 said...its raining there.

Well someone's checking out the live-blog, but I'm not so sure about that name, but they have the sentiment right.

10:34- I have to say this Brian Billick is the luckiest/suckiest coach ever in the history of the game. He had nothing to do with drafting that 2000 team, and has floundered ever since. F- him...should have been fired last year and he will when they don't make the playoffs this year (write it down Ravens fans)

10:37- Melo is rooting for the Ravens. He's opening a "Carmelo Anthony Youth Center" and I think that's just wonderful. Baltimore needs more people like him stepping up.....AHEM* Ray Lewis...adding nine kids to the population doesn't help.

10:41- 10:46 PM, WaistingCompanyTime6 said...'melo - "we're playin a team from turkey tomorrow. I don't much about them..."

And since the NBA has been doing SOOOOO WELL (WBRS)

10:45-10:47 PM, WaistingCompanyTime6 said... Theeesman -"3-3, this could be the score at the ACLS"

WCT6 could just do these for me, but he's right. What the hell does that mean?

"I think this team needs a Ravens D needs a nickname the Baltimore Bullies"- JT, Stupid.
"What about the Denver D?"- TK, Good point.
"Really Really Good"- JT, Is that a nickname?
"How about the Big Bad Boys in Blue"- JT, Shut up!
"That's too long for a nickname"-TK, Yes.
"Boys in Blue"- JT, I hate you.

End of the 3rd.....3-3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where are you commenters?!?!?!?! The Baby Jesus is here where are you?

10:51- At 10:55 PM, Jay said...Seriously people, are you still watching this game? You do know that "Family Guy" is on TBS right?

Come on Jay....you just killed my last 3 readers. I hate you and your silly hat! (j/k I love you Jay....we could play Howdy Doody as the sun sets in the Weeeeeest!)

10:54- 10 yard punts rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10:59- "Bart Scott from a hard area of Detroit.....lot of his friends killed"- MT, good seguy into Suzy Kolber.....

"How aggressive he is on gameday!!!"- Suzy......must be because of all of his friends being killed. I'd be pissed too personally.

11:06- BJ Sams slips in the endzone....perfect for MT to say, "BJ Sams is down in the endzone...arrested last week for his 2nd DUI in 14 months." Now we at AA don't condone drunk driving but we too have had a DUI (at 20 years old) but seriously you make a million dollars....take a frickin' cab. (you too Chris Henry)

11:15- Minus that post about Brett Favre I hate Green Bay.......to let Javon Walker go like that was just retarded....he wasn't asking for a lot at all.

Great! Great! Great! Audio on the John Lynch injury......I always wanted to know what it felt like to get a stinger....

"No No just lost the feeling in my left side by the neck"- Lynch
"Not the right side...just the left? Are you okay?"- Trainer
"Yeah just the left.....I'm fine"- Lynch

Fucking Badass. Period.

11:21- shakey-daisy said...where are you AA?

I think I have a stalker....I'm okay with that. I'm right here baby where are you???? Let me guess......somewhere 2,000 miles away.

11:23- HOLY SCHNIKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A TD!!!!!!!!!! I know all zero of you are excited but you'll read this tomorrow and get stoked. That's right stoked!!!!!!!!

13-3 Broncos!

"It's not going to be decided by 3 points or fewer at this point"- TK, Seriously...Fuck you Tony ahead of time for jinxing me.

13-3 Broncos!.....Final......and to end our night a comment from the one and only Jay:

Jay said...

I just freaking knew this would happen. I knew better than to take B-More in this game. I'm pretty sure that Billick probably threw this game just to ruin my damn picks. I hate him. I hope he dies a slow, painful, torturous death.

But I'm not bitter though.

That sucks....should have went with AA. Winner on the under....winner on the Broncs. Good night all.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at His infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Here's what remarkable men
have asseverated about the
world's bestseller:

"I believe the Bible is the best gift
God has ever given to man. All
the good from the Savior of the
world is communicated to us
through this book."
-- President Abraham Lincoln

"For we must consider that we shall
be as a City upon a hill. The eyes of
all people are upon us. So that if we
shall deal falsely with our God in this
work we have undertaken, and so
cause Him to withdraw his present
help from us, we shall be made a
story and a byword throughout the
world." --John Winthrop, Governor
of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630

"It is impossible to rightly govern the
world without God and the Bible."
- President George Washington

"The Bible is no mere book, but a Living
Creature, with a power that conquers
all that oppose it." - Napoleon

"That Book accounts for the supremacy
of England." - Queen Victoria

"If there is anything in my thought or
style to commend, the credit is due my
parents for instilling in me an early
love of the Scriptures. If we abide by
the principals taught in the Bible, our
country will go on prospering and to
prosper; but if we and our posterity
neglect its instructions and authority,
no man can tell how sudden a
catastrophe may overwhelm us and
bury all our glory in profound obscurity."
- Daniel Webster (Founding Father)

"The Bible is worth all other books which
have ever been printed." - Patrick Henry
(original member of the Continental Congress)

"The Bible is the anchor of our liberties."
- President U.S. Grant

"It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially
a Bible-reading people. The principals of the
Bible are the groundwork of human freedom."
- Horace Greeley (Editor)

"That Book is the rock on which our Republic
rests." - President Andrew Jackson

"In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible
has never failed to give me light and strength."
- Gen. Robert E. Lee

"Bible reading is an education in itself."
- Lord Tennyson (Poet)

"So great is my veneration for the Bible that the
earlier my children begin to read it the more
confident will be my hope that they will prove
useful citizens of their country and respectable
members of society. I have formany years made
it a practice to read through the Bible once
every year." - President John Quincy Adams

"The existence of the Bible, as a Book for the
people, is the greatest benefit which the human
race has ever experienced. Every attempt to
belittle it is a crime against humanity."
- Immanuel Kant (Philosopher)

"The New Testament is the very best Book that
ever or ever will be known in the world."
- Charles Dickens (Author)

"All human discoveries seem to be made only
for the purpose of confirming more and more
strongly the truths contained in the Sacred
Scriptures." - Sir William Herschel (Astronomer)

"There are more sure marks of authenticity
in the Bible than in any profane history."
- Sir Isaac Newton (Scientist)

"Let mental culture go on advancing,
let the natural sciences progress in
even greater extent and depth, and
the human mind widen itself as much
as it desires; beyond the elevation
and moral culture of Christianity, as
it shines forth in the Gospels, it will
not go." - Goethe (Author)

"I have known ninety-five of the world's
great men in my time, and of these eight-
seven were followers of the Bible. The
Bible is stamped with a Specialty of Origin,
and an immeasurable distance separates
it from all competitors."
- W.E. Gladstone (Prime Minister)

"Whatever merit there is in anything that
I have written is simply due to the fact that
when I was a chile my mother daily read
me a part of the Bible and daily made me
learn a part of it by heart." - John Ruskin
(art critic and social commentator)

"The Bible has been the Magna Charta of the
poor and oppressed. The human race is not
in a position to dispense with it." - Thomas
Huxley (Author & Scientist)

"The whole hope of human progress is
suspended on the ever growing influence
of the Bible." - W.H. Seward (Secretary of State)

"America was born a Christian nation. America
was born to exemplify that devotion to the
elements of righteousness, which are derived
from the revelations of Holy Scriptures. Part
of the destiny of Americans lies in their daily
perusal of this great book of revelations.
That if they would see America free and
pure they will make their own spirits free
and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit."
--President Woodrow Wilson

For Christians, the life and death of Jesus
are the ultimate expressions of love, and
the supreme demonstrations of God's
mercy, faithfulness, and redemption.
Since Christ's miraculous Resurrection
on Easter, more than 2,000 years ago,
Christians have expressed joy and
gratitude for this wondrous sacrifice
and for God's promise of freedom for
the oppressed, healing for the broken -
hearted, and salvation. --President
George W. Bush

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly
or too often that this great nation was
founded, not by religionists, but by
Christians; not on religions, but on
the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
very reason peoples of other faiths
have been afforded asylum, prosperity,
and freedom of worship here."
--Patrick Henry (original member
of the Continental Congress)


God designed humans to want to
believe in something. That's the
image of God that is in us. But as
G. K. Chesterton famously put it,
when we reject the God of the
Bible, we don't believe in nothing;
we believe in everything -- including
Little Green Men. - - Chuck Colson


I am trying here to prevent anyone from
saying the really foolish thing that people
often say about Jesus Christ: "I'm ready
to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher,
but I don't accept His claim to be God."

That is the one thing we must not say.
A man who was merely a man and said
the sort of things Jesus said would not be
a great moral teacher. He would either be
a lunatic -- on a level with a man who says
he is a poached egg -- or else he would be
the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this Man
was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman
or something worse .... You can shut Him up
for fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a
demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him
Lord and God. But let us not come up with any
patronizing nonsense about His being a great
human teacher. He has not left that option
open to us. He did not intend to. -- From
Case for Christianity, by C.S. Lewis



"Let every student be plainly instructed and
earnestly pressed to consider well the main
end of his life and studies is to know God
and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John
17:3)." - - - The Laws and Statutes of
Harvard College in 1643


"All scholars shall live religious, godly,
and blameless lives according to the rules
of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy
Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth;
and constantly attend upon all the duties
of religion, both in public and secret."
- - - Two central requirements in Yale
College 1745 charter

If you stop believing what your professor
told you had to be true and if you start
thinking for yourself you may come to some
conclusions you hadn't expected. You may
find the Bible makes more sense than you
thought or were told to think. Allow yourself
to be ruined, ruined with regard to what you
always thought could be true. Can you believe
what you don't understand? You and I believe
everyday what we don't understand unless it
comes to the issue of salvation.
- - - Dr. Woodrow Kroll

There is simply no historic foundation for the
position that the Framers intended to build the
'wall of separation' that was constitutionalized
in Everson. The 'wall of separation between
church and state' is a metaphor based on bad
history, a metaphor which has proved useless
as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and
explicitly abandoned. - - - Chief Justice of
the US Supreme Court, William Rehnquist

In 1796 the US Supreme Court issued this
ruling, "By our form of government, the
Christian religion is the established religion,
and all sects and denominations of Christians
are placed on equal footing." Some 57 years
later, after Congress was petitioned to separate
Christian principles from government, in 1853
the House Judiciary Committee issued their
formal report, including these words: "In this
age there is no substitute for Christianity.
This was the religion of the founders of the
republic, and they expected it to be the
religion of their dependents. The great vital,
conservative elements in our system is the
belief of our people in the pure doctrines
and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus
Christ." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan


"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men,
to own their dependence upon the overruling
power of God and to recognize the sublime
truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and
proven by all history, that those nations only
are blessed whose God is the Lord."
-- President Abraham Lincoln


Trust in yourself and you are doomed to
disappointment; trust in money and you
may have it taken from you; but trust in
God, and you are never to be confounded
in time or eternity. - D.L. Moody

Faith and love are apt to be spasmodic
in the best of minds. Men and women live
on the brink of mysteries and harmonies
into which they never enter and with their
hand on the doorlatch they die outside.
- - GK Chesterton

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

Busted For DUI? by Carson Danfield

DUI laws are quite complex and vary from state to state. For example, California DUI Laws are so strict that the state leads the nation in DUI arrests. There were almost 200,000 people arrested for DUI in California alone last year. When a person is arrested on DUI charges in Florida, he has approximately ten days to ask for a hearing with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to protect his license from being confiscated permanently.

Most people think that if they get pulled over for DUI, and are below the legal limit, that the officer will let them go or they will only be fined and not charged. Actually, an arrest for DUI can be made at any blood alcohol level.

The physical evidence of drunk driving includes slurred speech; inability to perform normal activities like standing, walking, or turning; red, glassy, bloodshot eyes; dilated pupils; and odor of alcohol on the breath.

Some DUI defense attorneys report that breathalyzers used by law enforcement do not accurately measure alcohol -- and thus may produce falsely high "blood alcohol" readings. Additionally, diabetics with low blood sugar can have high levels of acetone, which is "seen" as alcohol by breathalyzers.

If convicted, the DUI can render the defendant financially, socially, and psychologically impoverished and impaired. However, it is possible to have DUI records cleared in almost all states.


Many people charged with DUI want to know what a DUI attorney can do for them.

A well-qualified and professional DUI attorney can help to minimize the severity of DUI records and in some cases they can eliminate your DUI records completely.

A DUI attorney can check the case against you for errors, have samples independently analyzed, move to suppress certain evidence, arrange for expert testimony and witnesses, contest license suspensions and negotiate reduced penalties and sentences. DUI attorneys have to be knowledgeable and well versed in subjects such as blood analysis, breath tests, drug recognition evaluation and urine tests.

MISLEADING STATEMENTS BY POLICE OFFICERS

Any misleading statement by the police regarding the consequences of taking (or refusing) a blood, breath, or urine test can cause the suspension to be reversed and removed from the driver’s record.

Think all policemen are 'officer friendly'? Think they're all honest? Think again. I've known several policemen in different parts of the country and you'd be surprised at some of their 'tricks of the trade' that they routinely utilize. Keep in mind that these cops were personal friends of mine and bragged about some of the things they did -

A) If you want to cause problems for a driver you've pulled over, cite him for DUI and write in your report that when asked for his registration and proof of insurance, the driver seemed confused and disoriented. The fact of the matter is that most everyone stores these documents in their glove compartment, along with lots of other papers and miscellaneous junk. Of course, it will take anyone a couple of minutes to find the requested papers, but reporting that the driver appeared confused and disoriented will go a long way in convincing a judge that the driver was indeed impaired.

B) If a cop wants to make some extra cash, he'll check the record of anyone he pulls over for drunk driving. If the driver has had previous DUI convictions, he's the perfect target for a big cash bribe. He's given the choice of being cited for a second or third DUI, or he can pay a 'fine' in cash, directly to the cop. Given the choice of heavy DUI penalties or paying the cop, many drivers will fork over the cash.

C) Sit outside of a banquet hall that's used for wedding receptions. In almost all cases, there's drinking going on, so whenever anyone leaves, pull them over, threaten them with a DUI citation and then offer to let them go if they pay the fine right now.

There are other money-making routines the cops use, but I think you get the idea. When a cop pulls you over, you're at his mercy.

Since I've had several cops, from different parts of the country, brag about doing things like this, I have to conclude that such practices are not just isolated cases.

LACK OF PROBABLE CAUSE TO ARREST

A police officer must have specific and supportable facts to support any arrest for DUI, or the suspension will be reversed and the evidence suppressed at trial. In simple terms, you shouldn't be pulled over for DUI just because you're driving a red sports car.

There are many ways you can fight a DUI charge and win. To find out more, visit DUI-TRIX.com
