Godless NFL thread.

My Hogs are 1-3.  I never want to talk about football again until the subject is how quickly John L. Smith can be fired as the Razorbacks’ coach. But I will endure.  Sadly, the Raiders are 0-2 and last week all of my picks failed. Last week: My player to watch was Darren McFadden, who [Read More...]

Godless college football thread.

Ugh.  Arkansas.  The Razorbacks have some problems.  Ordinarily just about any SEC team against Rutgers would barely make it onto ESPN3 (and then, only because there was an SEC team playing).  But this game should be unfortunately close today.  However, the hogs do get QB phenom Tyler Wilson back.  That will help. Anyway, for all [Read More...]

Godless open NFL thread.

After my highly injured and incompetently coached Razorbacks got positively obliterated by Alabama, I don’t think I want to talk about football the rest of the year.  But I’m still gonna. Last Week: Last week I had Peyton Manning as the player to watch.  They were clearly easing him back in with a lot of [Read More...]

Godless college football thread.

After my beloved Razorbacks blew a 21 point lead to lowly ULM last week, I don’t even want to talk about college football – especially since this week we play #1 Alabama who looks like a freaking juggernaut. So, things to talk about this week aside from how particular games are going…can any team unseat [Read More...]

Chris Kluwe comes down on bigot politician like a ton of bricks.

A player for the Baltimore Ravens, Brendon Ayanbadejo, spoke out in favor of marriage equality.  In response, a delegate from the state of Maryland, Emmett C. Burns Jr., wrote a letter the Ravens team suggesting they muzzle their player. Boy, did that ever rub Vikings punter Chris Kluwe the wrong way.  He wrote an open [Read More...]

Godless NFL thread.

Let’s turn to the NFL after my beloved Arkansas Razorbacks got upset by lowly Louisiana-Monroe yesterday.  Ugh.  Maybe my Raiders will make some magic happen… So the NFL starts this week.  I will be on the road and unable to watch most of the action, but I still have my picks. Player to watch: Peyton [Read More...]

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...]
