The New York Jets Are Depleting Your Team

Our beloved New York Jets are an AFC East leading 7-2. While they may be one of the luckiest teams in the league, they are getting a good deal of respect from the teams they play each week. After most teams play the Jets (and lose) they seem to be depleted for the following week’s game. The record for teams after playing the Jets this year is a humble 3-5.

After losing to the Jets, the following teams did this:

  • New England barely beat Buffalo (1-8)
  • Minnesota barely beat Dallas (2-7)
  • Baltimore lost to Cincinnati (2-7)
  • *Green Bay is the only team with a good win

Teams are throwing everything they have at the Jets. Good chance the Browns get destroyed by the Jaguars this week, so call your bookie.

Only Classy Beers Have Tin Foil

I was saving this for a Yankees World Series, but I guess an episode of How I Met Your Mother will suffice.

McDonald$, Home Of The 100 Dollar Breakfast

Apparently the good people of Shreveport, Louisiana don’t mind spending a little extra when it comes to their McDonald$ egg sandwiches.

New Orleans Saints Fans Work A 9 to 2

I live and work in New Orleans, and I got this email the other day at work

As a result of the anticipated large crowds that will be in the CBD for the NFL parade and concerts and this being a Thursday night game, the Home Office will close early. Home Office employees may leave at 2:00 PM in order to avoid the traffic congestion associated with the game and all of the NFL pre-game activities that will take place around the CBD.

They also wanted me to wear a Saints jersey to work, nice try! Guex Saints! (on weekday games). JETS FREAKIN RULE!

Drinking Abita Beer For Charity

When British Petroleum started destroying our beautiful white sand beaches along the Gulf Coast, Abita Beer began brewing a charity beer called SOS (Save Our Shore). Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board, proceeds from Abita’s SOS will “assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.” In addition, Abita will donate 75¢ for each bottle sold. I wasn’t planning on drinking this delicious beer, but if I have to, I guess I will.

Check Washer & Dryer Installation Off My Bucket List

Every so often, a guy needs to step it up and put on a man skills clinic. For me, this clinic took place last weekend when I helped my girlfriend move into her new apartment. Standard of all apartment moves I dealt with the ridiculously heavy couch equipped with pull out bed, dresser, desk, bookshelf and mattress. But this move got turned up a notch, as a brand new washer & dryer had been purchased with the delivery and installation offer thoughtfully declined upon checkout. No biggy, I was up for a new challenge.

And just because I had an ounce of energy left in me, I put together the TV stand pictured below.

So “Phở”king Good

One of the perks of dating a Vietnemese girl is enjoying her native cuisine, more specifically, ph. Ph, pronounced “fa”, is the national dish of Vietnam, dating back to the early 1900’s in northern Vietnam. The soup is a beef broth with thin rice noodles, which usually contains either sliced beef (Phở bò) or chicken (Phở gà).

It’s quite possibly the most delicious soup in the world, and has even been rumored to have been eaten everyday for breakfast by my girlfriend’s dad for 20 years straight. I am lucky enough to get ph “to go” from my future mother-in-law every time I’m over for dinner. The key is to look really hungry and pathetic as you’re leaving, which I’ve pretty much mastered.

Is ABC’s “Downfall” the new “LOST”?

Cancelling Netflix

I’ve seen ’em all…

106 Degrees In New Orleans

Good thing I have about 20 episodes of Law & Order: SVU on my DVR.
