Lazy Links

Way late on this photoshop, sorry to the anonymous person who sent it in.

Sorry for the dearth in posting, its one of those times where the crew at DAI is busy at the same time. On a positive note, the next Pittsburgh sports based flash game is starting to come together.

Bob Smizik was in rare form on Sunday, delivering one of his trademark downer pieces, in this case about the 2008 Pirates. Am I the only one who thinks the low expectations are a good thing? It's like when I met my black sheep uncle for the first time when I was 8 or 9 years old. I was angry I had to put down my power ranger Zoids and expectations were low, but then he gave me 50 bucks just for the hell of it. I thought that was great until I realized a few years later that it averaged out to only around $2.77 for each Christmas and birthday he missed. Jerk.

Big Snack and Diego open up Mondesi's new line up with a top 10 list of things to do with your free time now that the Steelers are out of the playoffs. Though, reason number 7 assumes people who spend time on the blogosphere actually talk to women face to face.

I know Pat will like this one: Philip Rivers is Chachi.

Mark Madden believes Conklin should sit upon MAF's return. I think you ride Conklin until he shows any sign of coming down from whatever planet he is on, but not a minute sooner. But, as Madden points out, Therrien has never cared much for potential and likes to send messages to players depending on how they're playing, which means Conklin has probably earned a bit of respect.

Thats all I've got. Should be getting back into the swing of things shortly.

#9 on Mondesi's list is mandatory viewing for all of you.

The Wire is simply the best show on TV. I mention it all the time to I Want To Fight Tom Brady, but I've yet to get him to watch it.

Anyone who is a loyal viewer of The Wire knows how gritty and real it is. I highly recommend it.

I Want To Fight Tom Brady said...

I'm too busy training for my big fight, therefore I have no time to watch know this Stache'.

Pat said...

Stache - do you watch the wire before or after your candle-lit dinners with Bill Simmons?

Dave Wannstache said...

Hey, it ain't just me and Simmons who like it.

It's universally acclaimed, and I guarantee if you watched the first few episodes you'd be hooked too.

I Want To Fight Tom Brady said...

Can I get something straight...'The Wire' is about dudes in jail right??

If so, another question, do you watch 'The Wire' for the butt sex?

Or do you just enjoy a show about dudes?

Dave Wannstache said...

No, oh wise one, you are thinking about "Oz"

I did see some butt sex recently though. It was a week and a half ago, when Ohio St. took it up the ass from LSU.

Yeah, sorry bout that.

I Want To Fight Tom Brady said...

If that's an ass raping, sign me up again because it was by far the best experience of my life.

And it's not like we couldn't of won that game, Tressel fucked up by not running Beanie Wells 40 plus times (see 39 carries against Michigan) after our 10-0 lead. Running game and defense...who does that sound like?
