Zero -> 2001 -> Cities -> Yamar” 11.26.97 II, Hartford, CT

  2. angryjoggerz Says:

    Damn!!!!

    Excited to watch the debate tonight. Between US presidential elections, Chinese presidential and national peoples congress changes and the new change of president in my company, Im all jacked up on politics. Lovin it.

  3. angryjoggerz Says:

    Palmer, out of curiosity (and because you always nicely answer my dumbass sports questions) how do those numbers of games line up with college sports? Like, I assume that a college baseball team would not have such a long season, but I may be very wrong.

    Considering giving college basketball a shot this year during that time of year when everyone gets all amped on it, seems fun.

  4. joe Says:

    got a hold for 314. ok math majors, figure that one out?

  5. mr.palmer Says:

    College seasons are much , much shorter.

    College basketball teams maybe play 35-40 games at most. Starts in November and concludes in late march/ early April ( March Madness)

    Fwiw- College hoops is my favorite sport, although football is a real close second…. What team you want to follow? Depaul ( they stink). Illinois ?

  6. joe Says:

    put in 2 seats best available for each

  7. mr.palmer Says:

    Joe, two tickets is approx, what $140? with NYE a little more.

    I would guess you got NYE and one other night, 2 tickets each.

  8. angryjoggerz Says:

    Not sure, seems like with March Madness you can just sort of see a lot of really good basketball without really being too tied into one team, no? Watching a Bulls exhibition game right now, so yeah… I guess I am a basketball fan. Dig it. Most of what I know about sports I have honestly learned from the bb and a few friends who have been patient with my shenanigans. Much appreciated. Its a good learning lesson to just pick something you know nothing about and follow it a bit.

    People can change.

    @joggerz
    college baseball teams play about 60-70 games in the regular season. tough collegiate sport for northern teams because the season starts in late February so they are on the road a lot or play in cold weather (with aluminum bats, no less).

  10. angryjoggerz Says:

    Not happy to D Rose on the sideline eating nachos. Not a good look.

  11. joe Says:

    college hoops is fun. I prefer the NBA a little more, even though the intensity of the players and crowds is a lot less. Caliber of play is much better. (but I’d also watch people playing dominoes if they televised it instead of a sitcom or something. Although I have been enjoying this season of Boardwalk Empire)

    was kind of hoping that I didn’t get nye tickets. will have to make some wheeling and dealing once we all confirm what we have. Lady is giving a great effort on the sobriety front recently and most likely will not want to do Phish on NYE. I’d feel ok sneaking away for other days but not for that one. I could always pimp her out as a nanny and hit the shows. would be a delicate convo for that one.

  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    but I’d also watch people playing dominoes if they televised it

    oh, they do, joe. they do.
    I’ve seen it at random times on the deuce. but not for a few years. I think poker took a lot of those time slots.

    ncaa tourney is great for the casual fan. great to pick a team or three to follow or to just root for the upsets or whatever.

  13. joe Says:

    yeah, I should have said if they still televised it. I’d also watch this one:

  14. MiA Says:

    Romney knows how to get kids jobs. Government will do it for you.

    What is retarded about politics is those dumb asses will promise you whatever you want as long as you vote for them.

    Politics is lying to you to get your vote. Then so nothing because its more complex than the President can really do.

  15. mr.palmer Says:

    I just like following The Real Fly’s twitter feed during presidential debates. Funny stuff.

  16. mr.palmer Says:

    The_Real_Fly ‏@The_Real_Fly

    Pay your fair share you pea eating fucked face

  17. mr.palmer Says:

    OIL HAS TRIPLED IN PRICE UNDER MR. GREEN

    haha.. just a sample of his abuse

  18. MiA Says:

    I asked him if he was drunk a few days ago.

  19. sumodie Says:

    NYE ticket = $81.15

    28-30 ticket = $70.85

    $10 shipping for most peeps

  20. SillyWilly Says:

    god. I can’t listen to this…

  21. mr.palmer Says:

    I can’t watch the debate. Is obama at least fighting back this time?

  22. DavidSilver Says:

    You could employ a shit ton of irs agents attempting to find all the places romney stashes his money in order to not pay taxes to this country he loves so much.

  23. MiA Says:

    Politicians making promises to do whatever you want.

    The can make the works whatever fantasy it is you want as long as you vote for them.

    Too bad Congress writes the laws, not presidents.

  24. Mr.Miner Says:

    Is 150 two new years tix?

  25. Mr.Miner Says:

    Cant believe u stoner fucks waste your time watching the debate 😉
