Oh yeah, in case there was any doubt….
I want the Bruins to win.
C’mon Billy, gimme some MEAT! I want something to talk about, not watch sissy boys on ice….
if you want meat, might i suggest the I Beam?
you surprise me, Barkeep… recommending the I beam… I take it you frequent it.. must be after hours, since you close here every night……..
I like it here, its more to my taste… (vert winx at Belle and Suzi…..)
Sissy boys on ice? Please cite supporting information.
Let me guess, you must be a basketball fan. Take a few 85 mph hockey pucks to the mouth because you are trying to block the shot and only miss two shifts. I could describe how hockey is more physically demanding than every other sport but you’ll probably use your predisposed prejudices to refute my information.
Yes, watching teeth fly is SOO entertaining, Matt! lets go to a hockey game and then afterwards we can crack some beer bottles with our teeth and watch crotch shots on America’s Funniest Video’s!!!! Leave the women at home and we can even scratch our balls and NOT wash our hands before eating!!!
vert…you did say you wanted some meat.
I suppose if we trade on stereotypes, his poiting you to the I Beam may be appropriate…just like back in the day it would have been Ralph’s.
LOL, used to hang at ralphs, learned to play piano in the back room! It was nothing like that.
As to the “Meat” reference, take it in context, it was asking for for a topic worthy of posting on something with substance… note how fast that fluff topic digressed to gay bars…..
Ralphs used to be a sausage house. Remember how filthy the bathrooms were? That’s because nobody wanted to clean them after they found out what was going on in there.
You obviously never actually went there. Brings back memories of the Hippies, and the Saturday Afternoon Drunk… that usually started about weds. morning……..
Yes, the bathrooms were nasty, but its because Carla, Bob and Don were too lazy to clean them, let alone fix them which is what what was needed. Never saw any of THAT kind of activity there, let alone trolling.
PS, I also rented a room over Kirby’s for a while… sad place, where old drunks went to die…
I will be pulling for the dread Bruin even though they are an eastern team…just cannot stand Luongo…the Canuckleheads otherwise are a pretty formidable team and under rated in the nasty department. Since they put the Hawks away and represent the West I should be pulling for them but just cannot get past the netminder.
Vert: I think Bonz gave you sage advise, though I shudder at how he found out….don’t ask..don’t tell I guess.
Vert, you said that hockey players were sissy boys. I provided one example to the contrary and now all of the sudden you’re describing hockey fans as no IQ trash?
LOL, are you really taking ANY of this seriously, Matt? I was making a point that we needed a DECENT TOPIC, not gushing over sports teams… The other topics were getting old…. although I admit I got lucky… VERY lucky….
PS, how would YOU describe Hockey Fans? I would like you to try to include art, the library, or the symphony in the description, it would be entertaining….
I know several hockey players who have engaged in figure skating competitions as part of their training regimine. In fact, most hockey fans I know are also huge fans of watching figure skating competitions.
Figure skating and gymnastics may well be the only two sports that engage in a comparable amount of physical exertion over an extended period of time as hockey does.
Let us not forget cross country skiing and biathelon…few things are tougher than running your ass off and then trying to get control over your heart rate enough to BRASS…and then get your ass moving again…
I presume you meant triathlon rather than biathlon. I believe biathlons usually involve rifles.
But perhaps I should have specified “team sports” in my commentary. Triathletes, runners, swimmers, cyclists, etc. are all fairly one dimensional sports where a single skill is needed to excel. Hockey and figure skating are much more complex.
However, I still think a fair comparison could be made, though. I don’t think I could play a full three hour hockey game without rest. I have run ten miles at a time, though, when I was younger, and the only thing that stopped me from continuing was sheer boredom.
No I was talking about biathelon…to ski race at a high level and then have to stop and shoot with a great degree of accuracy and then ski again repeating the cycle is one hell of a sport and taxing on the body as hell…granted, no one is checking you or trying to knock you on your ass, but still, it is one tough mutha…to excel in.
Being an Avalanche fan, I strongly disklike the canucks going back to the Bertuzzi days. If it was any other team than the Canucks……..
I am extremely excited that the Red Wings and Penguins aren’t in the finals as well.
I preferred them as Nordiques but what the hell…I too am glad we do not have to put up with octopi and the Peng’s…I like the Bruins concept of grinding it out, but they better learn how to get one on the road if they want to use Lord Stanley’s hardware as a sippy cup.
Tonight’s the night that they learn to win one on the road.
4-1 Bruins as Luongo finally snaps at home…..
Bryan K: BRASS – Breathe, Relax, Aim, Sight, Squeeze … = Acronym for shooting (with a rifle) technique.
Your back!!!! Finally got someone to haul your ass out of the field eh?
Rifles and shooting have been my passion since I was 8-9 years old growing up on the farm. This spring has been a real Charlie Foxtrot. Hundreds, if not thousands, of acres are going unplanted. Rained 5 inches in Hope, ND last night. Some of what did get planted rotted because of excess moisture. Some of the richer farmers are going to have to dip into the principal. A lot of others have bought new, faster computers and have started working on their debt restructuring plan. It looks like a good time to be an auctioneer.
What do you think of the SCAR made by FNH? I think it’s a nice rifle but seems expensive. Perhaps Andy can provide some expert advice as well?
I much prefer classic bolt actions like the pre-’64 Winchester Model 70 and the 98 Mauser to semi-automatic rifles. Of course, prairie dogs and whitetail can’t shoot back. I have read that the 5.56 was inadequate in the Mideast conflicts and that the Army is/was developing a cartridge of 6.5 t0 7 mm. I think Remington has marketed a civilian version. I should have looked it up before I typed all this BS, but it is too hard for a two-finger typist to do it over so to hell with it. At any rate, I don’t want one unless somebody is trying to kill ME.
I had a bolt action .270 Weatherby (lefty) that I used when the shot was a long flat one…notoriously skittish. For brush, nothing ever beat the Model 94…or on the wing a pump Remington Wingmaster…
as far as the SCAR…
for the military application, it appears that the MK17 & MK20 both have made the cut…I would prefer to have a 7.62 round over the 5.56 and am curious about performance of the MK20 sniper variant…the weight of this equipment is just ridiculous…nothing like these wonderful toys were available to us while soldiering…those who had them prefered the Czech 47 as ammo was plentiful and it was a superb weapon in the jungle…I did not have one however…and finally appropriated a M14 for a while until the 16A2 made the line. Nothing beats the warm and fuzzy feeling of a sawed off 12g with buckshot though, and as much ammo as you can carry and still hump…water and ammo came first in a LURPs life, then food…you can always graze…..
“Bryan K: BRASS â€“ Breathe, Relax, Aim, Sight, Squeeze â€¦”
gee, and I thought you just wrote the Cliff’s Notes for masturbating…..
Ralphs was notorious for the gay sex going on in the bathrooms. The BRASS concept works there as well supposedly.
Google 6.8 Remington SPC. Looks good on paper.
you know, if i ever win the lottery, i am going to collect sniper rifles…and remrafdn will be my adviser, and we can have Bar get togethers and we’ll grill steaks and drink our favorite libations and shoot guns
Sounds like a Ted Nugent party…..BTW there is a statue of his mom in fornt of Durtie Nellies 2 blocks from my humble abode….
