Pretty Much An Ass Kicking

Suck on that Raider Nation. By the way, your QB flat sucks. Give me Neckbeard any day. While the schedule gets quite a bit tougher, 3-0 is a pretty good way to start the McD era. Will be interesting to see how this dominant D looks against the Cowboys next week.

Sunny Day Real Estate Monday Night....

I'm sure Dahmer has stellar photos of this show. Mine were from my Blackberry, which takes some mighty shitty photos in a show environment. Proven time and again on this site.
If there is a next time for SDRE live in Denver - and I don't hear anything from HIFTBSO again I might have to give an Emo beatdown to a certain Lover of the Lord.
Not sure if I could take Spilly Jr. if it came to a setlist rumble, he's a bit more rugged.

Brougham Saturday Night...

Rocking Brougham Royale show Saturday night....
I will offer this bit of insight, based on my experiences that evening.
Being a roadie is much easier on the load-in. Later in the evening you've got to watch out for the stair surfing with your hands full, and your brain addled.

Is This Man a Genius?

Defense wins football games they say. The Broncos' defense suddenly bears no resemblance to the piss-poor group from '08.
Got to start to wonder how much is Nolan's schemes and how much is the upgraded personnel. Whatever it is, I like it, for 2 weeks straight against THE Ohio based NFL squads.
Keep this up and we may have reason to believe that the difficult upcoming schedule may actually not be just a whole slew of "L's". I'm encouraged. Or to quote the Replacements (the band not the movie) as all good NFL pundits do, "Color Me Impressed"

This Orton Guy Is Clutch!

One of the crazier football games you could ever imagine to see. It was pretty boring for the first 59:40 of the game, but then things got exciting, to say the least. Neckbeard conjures up some 4th quarter magic and delivers a brilliant trick play. It's really harder than it looks and requires a perfect throw to get the ball to deflect off the defender's hands at the right angle to hit the wide-open Brandon Stokely. A gutsy play-call by McD, but very effective at getting past defensive secondaries that drop back into a prevent with the game all but sewn up.

Seriously, I kind of look at the first couple of games like an extension of the preseason. The offense looked putrid overall, but some of that can be chalked up to dropped passes, sloppy passes, and untimely penalties. All of these can be fixed and I'm not expecting our offense to suck this bad all year. They will get better throughout the season(which might be masked somewhat be the increasing difficulty of schedule). The defense looked improved, but still gave up quite a few wide-open pass plays and of course had what appeared to be a game-losing meltdown when the game was on the line. But, that's what a gamer like Neckbeard will do for you: pick up your defense, when they had been picking up the offense all game.

I smell Super Bowl.....

Meat Puppets. Ween. red rocks.

It looks, and feels, weird at Meat Puppets & Ween shows. I have trouble focusing on things.
