I hate everything about this. http://youtu.be/9FdnssHlcRk
Kind of crazy that I follow two professional sports teams and both of them have the #1 pick in 2013. It's not a great sign.

2013 NHL Playoffs Calcutta

It's really even. The teams I wanted were the Penguins, Bruins, Rangers, Senators. I of course wanted the Blackhawks but preferred the Penguins and knew I couldn't get both 1 seeds.

Didn't really want the Ducks, Blues, or Capitals, but it happens. We've got 5 first-round series with skin in the game. Let's dig in.

Only team that I don't have that I wish I did is Chicago, so I'm happy with my picks. I even let Mark have his precious Red Wings. This way, it will be so much sweeter when they lose.

Parenting a newborn, toddler and dog is like an endless attempt to cross a bridge with a goat, wolf, and a cabbage.

Except you can't leave the toddler alone with anyone.

chiefs draft = shit

Really disappointed with this draft.

We have a LT in Albert and we're seemingly going to trade him away. So we use the #1 overall on a replacement. Why not just keep Albert?

Then we draft yet another TE.

And then a RB? A position of strength and depth, for a fumble-prone guy that seems to be a reach.

Barkley probably sucks, but I wish we had some sort of QB prospect. He would have been a top-5 pick a year ago. Nobody really knows if he'll be any good.

But this GM thinks he's solved our QB problems by landing Alex fucking Smith. Really?

When we go 5-11 this year and Smith has more INT than TD, then what?

Nobody knows anything about the draft.

I would love for us to trade into the 2nd round and get a QB. Geno Smith would be my choice. I'd take a flier on Barkley or Nassib, even though I don't know anything about them, because I'd rather have prospects than not.

the wife's draft analysis

Me: The Chiefs had the #1 pick and could have taken anyone, and they took a lineman.

Wife: A lineman?!

Me: Yeah.

Wife: What?! Do they think he will be sacking the quarterback on every play?

Me: Protecting the quarterback. Offensive lineman.

Wife: That's even worse.

Avs lost yesterday. Nuggets lost a playoff game yesterday. Rockies lost twice yesterday. Truly an anti-pantheon day in Denver sports. Nobody cares.

Saturday, April 20, 2013

A playoff game today at the Pepsi Center? That's crazy, I thought the Avs were 29th out of 30 teams? Oh.

I am much more nervous than last time. I really wasn't nervous last time.

Maybe because I know what I'm getting myself into. Probably because our life is about to become crazy.

I imagine it's like getting a job. When you're unemployed and you get hired, it's great. There might be long hours and you might be tired, but now you've got a paycheck and life is great.

But if you already have a job and now you're getting a second night job or something, well that's a different story. Now the time that you used to spend relaxing or buying groceries, that's gone. So then you're just working two jobs and sleeping and then you need to do something stupid like eat or write a letter so you start losing sleep.

I said that I imagine it's like getting a job, but I don't really know. I'll find out tomorrow.

March Madness biggest losers

Every year there is one team that loses to a team that loses to a team that loses to a team that loses to a team that loses to a team.

Last year Harvard lost to Vanderbilt who lost to Wisconsin who lost to Syracuse who lost to Ohio State who lost to Kansas who lost to Kentucky.

In 2011 it was Louisville.

In 2010 it was Oklahoma State.

This year, the contenders are:

Saint Mary's
New Mexico

the simpsons at its best

Recently, The Simpsons won a best sitcom bracket.

And I put it in my top 5 sitcoms ever.

So I was thinking about it and specifically what it's prime was. A quick google search shows that conventional wisdom paints their best seasons as seasons 4 through 8, with 9 marking a different producer and shift in quality.

I thought one way to analyze it would be to go through a list of favorite quotes/moments and see what seasons they were.

steamed hams/aurora borealis: Season 7

lie detector test blows up: Season 8

moe hot date/sears catalog: Season 7

bart's room/dumpster: Season 7

onion style of the time: Season 4

lisa the vegetarian: Season 7

misses old glasses: Season 6

hank scorpio: Season 8

i was saying boo-urns: Season 6

everything's coming up milhouse: Season 10

free frogurt: Season 4

introduction of disco stu: Season 7

introduction of gil: Season 9

bort license plate: Season 6

anything with lionel hutz: Seasons 2-8

soccer game: Season 9

sideshow bob macgyver mystery: Season 3

So apparently Season 7 is the best ever.
