NFL WEEK 16

We take a break from sex and scandals to bring you our last week of NFL picks. For those of you who followed our picks this year, enjoy your new Lexus. For the rest of you, remember to load up on our picks early next year, as we identify trends the rest of the public doesn't see.

Go ahead and take the Tampa Bay Bucs at -2 over the hapless Carolina Panthers.

Over 39 in the Titans/Colts game.

Under 41 in Jax at Houston.

Tough week because so many games don't matter. It's kind of like pre-season.

You might want to take a flyer on our Fins -2.5 at home to close out the season as winners.

We also sort of like the over 41 in tonight's Giants/Cheaters match up.

And because we are scheduled to be away for a bit, let us wish you an early Happy New Years. We might not blog for a couple of days, or we might be hammering the SAO. It all depends on the Internet connection at our accommodations.
But fear not for comments, as we have that well under control; they should be up shortly after you make them.

See You Next Year?

"As I said, people are going to make unfair assumptions and believe that nonsense (which, by the way, is totally untrue). Some of the idiots who read this blog actually believe everything that's posted, as you well know. You're allowing these posts is totally inappropriate and, I hope, beneath you. Please remove them.

This comment was in response to some various comments back and forth about a Sexual Battery Chief that had a DUI in Pinecrest and who was addicted to and always flying on prescription drugs. And who apparently still works but as a DC only.

Reading the blog and noting the objections that have sprung forth claiming this is all false, I'm perplexed.

One objection is that it is slandering someone's reputation. Yet no one has been named ever that I can tell by the posts.

The second objection is that it is ridiculous and false.

Here's what eggs at me. If its false and no one is named, then how is it actually besmirching anyone? Because unless someone fits the bill, it would be false and basically be referring to no one.

Secondly, again how can someone be slandered by it, if no one has been named? Unless again, someone actually resembles that remark which would make the comments increasingly truthful.

Third, if it were absolutely bogus, no one would care and no one would even care to register an objection because who would care about nonsense?

Therefore, I deduce that because its irking someone or a group of someones (based on the objection EACH time this event is mentioned), that someone is a little sensitive and touchy.

Because a lot of things are said on this blog all the time that slam a lot of people and I've never seen such a fierce determination in responses about it. (Well except maybe from he who should not be named.)

Rumpola, if you are going to NYC for New years and only have one restaurant to eat at, then my choice as the number one best in NYC can't miss- must go to no matter what - is.....

MOMOFUKU SSAM BAR It’s tempting to choose something else, given how much acclaim has come to Momofuku’s chef and co-owner, David Chang. But Ssam Bar deserves top honors for its inventive, flavor-packed dishes and its rebelliousness in dispensing with the trappings that usually accompany such sophisticated food.

Enjoy Rumpy. Let me know if you need help getting in, and ignore that other knucklehead who posts here about bar be que and thinks he knows something about food. He's a cheap hack and a rube.

Frank Bruni said...

At least my posts are genuine rather than your plagerized quote from the New York Times (see Dining Out, wednesday,, December 26,2007).Pathetic.

Barzee Brigade Members:

To those in sector 5, command states
postpone Operation Bartholemew until Monday.

Postpone all B related Ops.

Everything else is a go.

Genius! Absolute genius!

BTW, Jack, the comment about you and Walker opening a firm together has nothing to do with you both allegedly being Christians. Rather, it is because the both of you are wackjobs.

Anonymous said...

Jeeze/ I wish you people in Corporate would get your act together. Is Op Bart canceled for everyone or just secotr 5? You know in Sector 5 we were supposed to pick up supplies from sector 6 and deliver some to sector 3 in Kendall. Is that on or off?

And what about Graceland? Is that a go for 12/31? Please guys, people have made sacrifices for this.

The Herbert/ Burning statute book comment is my nominee for Best Of 2007 Rump.

Riddler said...

"Herbert"

"Again?"

"No. Its not Jesus.Its Cab Calloway."

"Oh."

"Yes. Listen.... now that you are not performing in court anymore, I would like my kerchiefs back."

"Yes sir."

"And Herb... make sure you send them to the cleaners first.Damn son! And for what its worth, Jesus laid the points and went with the Pats."

Miami Herald reporter Susannah Nesmith gets the facts of a story wrong every time. I have never known her to report a completely accurate story. When she can't get a comment she makes up her own facts to fill in the gaps. Nesmith engages in irresponsible journalism. I think she should be investigated. The Herald needs to look into this.

Rumpole said...

Brrrr its cold here. Now I know why I live in Miami. But the Chocolate is good and I may just buy myself one of those watches.

Rumpole said...

Ps. So far so good with the over in the Cheaters game. Three games stand between them and proof positive that cheating works.

rump kisser said...

Hey Rumpy,
Bring me back one of those chocolate kisses please...
Have a great time and Happy New Year's!

Rumpole said...

No can do kissey poo. Customs and all that.

Graceland is a go. Only "B" ops were canceled. Check your hand book. "B" ops have no connection with Graceland activities. Also we need some help with flyers at the Dolphins game.

Fake Blake said...

Miami has the dolphins
Can they win one more today?
Its time for Parcells to fire Cam
And send him on his way
The Fins play the Bengals
Ithink they're gonna win
Cause when you say Miami
We really need Cowher's Chin!!!

Rump- could Jackie T run for judge in 08-win-get disbarred- and still serve out his term as 1-he would not be practising law and 2-he would not have done anything actionable by the JQC?

PS- i never heard of a Slapp suit either.

U aren't by chance in Switzerland? I know the most charming blonde there. Very accomidating if you g$t my drift. Very GFE.

See ya.

Oh woe is me. How shall I survive on the bench now that my most trusted friend and advisor is gone?

fake blake said...

Miami has the Dolphins
Cinco Ocho just scored again
Things arent looking too bad
We're losing 14-10
Ginn is playing pretty good
And Lemon like his name
Cause when you say Miami
Nick Saban still's to blame.

fake blake said...

Miami has the Dolphins
Beck just Fumbled the Snap!!!!
The Bengals take the ball to the goal
Oh i can't stand this crap
In the air or on the ground
They stink in every way
Cause When you say Miami
I pray Cowher's on his way.

If I get a clue on who you are I will destroy you in two paragraphs or less.

Happy New Year,
Oh Susanna Nesmith - aka - no fact check software required just a cretive imagination.

Lexus Nexus never heard of it!

Anonymous said...

we all know nesmith is usually wrong bc we work here and know the inside scoop. Now she is no difft than other reportes; they get the general gist of a story, fill in their own facts and print it. If it is totally libelous they may print a retraction aweek later on page 8.

Keep this in mind as most news stories are part fact. Part fiction. And part creative license.

And to jack t -- keep up the good work. We are all amused at your ravings. You truly missed your calling as a comedic writer
