Atheist fantasy football!

My friend Courtney has convinced me I should try fantasy football.  She is willing to commissioner a league (whatever that means) for atheists. So, we need ten atheists who want to compete in a fantasy football league.  First ten people to email their wish to play to wwjtd21[at]gmail[dot]com get in. The name of my team?  [Read More...]

First open NFL thread of 2012-2013

I want to start with talking trash about how good the Raiders are going to be.  Then I just can’t bring myself to be that dishonest. Then I want to talk about how there’s a real chance they’ll make the playoffs this year.  Ditto. There’s so much turmoil and a new, untested head coach in [Read More...]

Lebron James: savior of all humankind

The commentators for the Olympics crack me up.  HOLY SHIT IT’S OVERCAST IN LONDON! Also, as much of a fan of basketball that I am, I can’t watch the USA play.  I don’t like Lebron James.  I think he’s self-absorbed and I think what he did to the Cavs was shittier than a litterbox.  But [Read More...]

Godless Olympics thread

I’ve spent a good part of the last couple days watching the Olympics.  It seemed a good idea to create a thread where the godless can chat about the Olympics.  I really enjoyed watching the mens swimming relay last night.  Phelps swam a helluva race.  It was good seeing him back in form.  I felt [Read More...]

The Penn State sanctions and collateral damage

After it was discovered the Joe Paterno had taken a page out of the Vatican’s playbook (Paterno was Catholic, after all) and had valued the reputation of his football program over protecting prepubescent boys from rape, the NCAA deliberated and has now handed down their sanctions on Penn State for Paterno’s inaction.  They aren’t fucking [Read More...]

Move over Jesus, Tebow's in town

Tim Tebow is suing the makers of a tshirt for using Tebow’s likeness without his permission.  Here are the shirts. I see the word “my” and the word “Jesus” and a Jesus fish…but no “Tim” or “Tebow” or Tebow’s face. There can be only one explanation: Tim Tebow is Jesus, and instead of wrathful and [Read More...]

NCAA National Championship open thread

Tonight Kentucky plays Kansas for the national title. Kentucky is a juggernaut this year, and I have a really hard time imagining they’ll lose this game.  They’re not invincible, but they’re damn close. However, John Calipari is a cheater.  Perhaps, even though he vacated final fours with UMass and Memphis for cheating, he’s legitimately landing [Read More...]

WWJTD NCAA bracket group!

It’s March Madness!  On you can fill out a virtual bracket and join a group to compete against your friends.  There is a group, WWJTD, where Michaelyn and I have entered our brackets (along with a bracket we each filled by flipping a coin). I hate John Calipari.  Ed Brayton is sensible when he [Read More...]

Super Bowl open thread

I’m going to be spending the whole day with Christina making videos and I’ll be in the air during the game.  Time to ask for an extra pack of peanuts. I enjoy football so I do usually watch the Super Bowl.  The Super Bowl used to be an almost guaranteed blowout in favor of the [Read More...]

To All Christians Fawning Over Tim Tebow

I’d like to introduce you to the guy who looked like god against Denver last night. “Look at the attention I get: It’s because I throw a football. But that’s what society values. That’s not what God values. God could give a shit, as far as I’m concerned. He didn’t invent the game. We did. [Read More...]
