Dead Viewing: Season 7, Episode 6-"Swear"

***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***

Opening on the beach, with kids, and Tara is down in the water unconscious. Not a good sign to begin the episode. This group kills everyone who comes in? Still no snitches. The younger kid doesn't want to help the older one with Tara. I wonder what happened to Tara and where is Heath?

I would normally be watching my Chiefs on national television, but at the moment, I think it is best that I watch The Walking Dead, as the Chiefs basically turn in to the walking dead during national televised games

Eight rusty cans of okra and a bottle of aspirin is all they have found in two weeks? Heath took issue with the killing of the Saviors. Heath is still a little soft being in Alexandria. He knows that he has to chose to live. He is ready to give it up and go back. This waterfront crib is pretty nice. Tara is still unconscious. This teenager is taking care of Tara, who is not really unconscious. Nice fake out Tara, but why? Eww a raw fish. Tara now following the girl through the woods. This seems like a trap.  Yet, another community. So many kids? Where is she? There guards are pretty sucktastic. Are there only women in this community? tjeu jave weapons. What's going on? Why are they hiding and getting guns?  Well, clearly, they shoot first ask questions later. The girl who was taking care of her was named Cindy. I'm a little confused right now...Tara saying everything is cool, but they aren't buying her Tarantino impersonation. 

Did these ladies build the fort on the bridge? There is a sand pile on the bridge. Tara moved a bag in the sand, and oh my goodness, the sand was trapping walkers. Natonya and Beatrice. She got knocked off the bridge. Yep, they shoot strangers on site. Tara is such a weirdo. They are taking her out by night? What's happening?  

The men were killed and they were all that's left? She wants to recruit them to help Alexandria, but I don't fully trust them.  Poor trusting Tara. She may not make it to the next episode. At least she won't know what happened in Alexandria.  Tara flipping the bird to little Rachel the kid who tried to kill her twice.  This looks so suspect right now leading her back to the bridge. Ah, they were trying to kill her! These witches...Now, the Saviors killed every boy over ten, wth?!  They are savage more than savior. Cindy saved Tara again. Now, she's leading her to the bridge if Tara promises never to tell about their settlement. 

Tara made it through the sand walkers. Heath got caught up among the sand walkers, and Tara fell off the bridge. Aw, naw...I thought that was Heath was a walker for a minute, but it was a female walker. Heath's glasses were broken, but he is no where to be seen, and the RV is gone. Tara found a card with PPP on it. What does that mean? So, we have Hilltop, the Kingdom, Alexandria, the Fish people communities. Tara is still so positive, eating the salted perch getting a bobble head for Denise.  Tara has made it back to Alexandria, but now she has to get the worst news ever that Denise, Glenn, and Abraham are dead. Tara kept her promise to Cindy. Still no Heath...The fish community is Oceanside. Only two episodes left...Sigh. I just know somebody is going to die in the next two episodes...

NFL Week 12: Waking up in Second Place

Welcome back, guys! Hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving celebration with your families, friends, and significant others. I enjoyed spending time with my family, although it meant only 20 actual minutes of anything even close to being football related. The fam isn't into football. I know, I'm the odd duck in the bunch, but our Thursday viewing was dedicated to a non-stop comedy movie marathon consisting of Bad Moms, Central Intelligence, and Deadpool.  Not a bad way to spend a Thursday, but I missed the football, and Aretha's national anthem.

It is not a dream. The Dallas Cowboys have the best record in the NFL. I know, right?  Is there anyone more insufferable than a Dallas fan when they are winning?  Yeah, a Lakers fan, but I digress. The Boys have surprised a lot of people dominating their division and conference with a rookie quarterback-Dak Prescott. It's hard not to root for Prescott, but you guys know my feelings about the boys. Rooting for Dak, but against those boys. It's what I do.  Seriously, it physically hurts to say nice things about the Cowboys and the Raiders.

I don't know what is going on with Green Bay and Kansas City. My Chiefs had no business losing that game to Tampa Bay on Sunday. NONE!!! I will give Tampa Bay their props. They are a decent team, but the Chiefs are better than what they put on the field Sunday. Even with the injuries, there is no way they are Super Bowl bound losing games like this. They fell from first place to second place (barely) and will now face the Broncos in Denver tonight on national television. The Chiefs, sigh, are not good on national television. Maybe it's me. Nah, it's not me. A big shoutout to one of my favorite Chiefs' blogs, who pointed out that since 2004, the Chiefs are 10-18 on national television. They lost their first national televised game in that abomination against the Steelers early this season. They are scheduled for two national televised games, one against Oakland on December 8, and the other against Denver on Christmas Day.  I regret to say have no hopes for either of those games. Wow, they are doing the Who's got the Edge segment on the Chiefs/Broncos. Tony Gonzalez is picking this game. Sigh...Chiefs are going to lose.

Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers, smh, I am just as surprised as anyone that Green Bay is so infuriating this year. The Packer fans are blaming Olivia Munn for Jessica Simpsoning the Pack, while even legit sports sites are citing a rift in the Rodgers family (also blamed on Aaron's girlfriend Olivia) for causing Aaron's problems on the field.  Whatever the problem, Green Bay is going to find themselves buying tickets to the playoffs if they don't solve this problem. 

Well, to the task at hand, last week was a good week.  I once again improved my record with a 12-4 showing thanks  in part to my 3-0 Thanksgiving day picks.  The old record ticked up to 102-61 for the season.  My fantasy teams:  Lucille Swings is still in first place with a 9-2 record, while Lochte and Loaded dropped its second game in two weeks dropping to fourth place. Lochte and Loaded is such a dumpster fire, that the most exciting thing happening this week is that I was able to swing getting Matt Bryant back as my kicker. No byes this week with three teams playing on Thursday.

When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on."-Dave Pelzer

NFL Week 12: Thanksgiving Edition

"Gratitude is the sign of noble souls."-Aesop

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!! I'm not going to spend a great deal of time speaking about this weekend, because I will talk about that on Sunday.  Take a moment to think about the things you are thankful for instead. I'm thankful for my family, my friends, my students, my co-workers, and any person who has played a role in the course of my life, no matter how large or small.  You have all been a blessing and made a contribution to the person I've become.

I know, I know, we are all thankful for football on Thanksgiving day, but how about giving a little thanks to the players, coaches, and staff who give up so much time with their families and put their bodies on the line to entertain us every week. Thanks guys!

I'm thankful that my Chiefs are still in the playoff picture even after that debacle on Sunday. Thank you guys for being my team.

I'm going to make this short and quick, so I can spend time with my family as I know many of you will.

Thursday, November 23, 2016

May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And you pies take the prize,
And my your Thanksgiving dinner,
Stay off your thighs."-Grandpa Jones

Dead Viewing: Season 7, Episode 5-"Go Getters"

***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***

What's the over/under on a death tonight? Maggie is still alive, and so is her baby. So far...Dr. Carson insists that Maggie stay for the duration of her pregnancy.  They buried Glenn and Abraham at the Hilltop. Sasha found Hershel's pocket watch in Glenn's pocket. She said all Abraham had was a cigar.  I like the friendship between Sasha and Maggie. Hey, Jesus...Gregory is such a butthole...Sasha is looking at Gregory like who the crap you are talking to. Nah, Gregory, you are not a good guy.  

Back to Alexandria. Rick arguing with Carl again. Oh, no pecks on the cheek, Rick. Do the kiss right, even thanked her for it. Michonne, my girl! Carl looks like the girl all the mean girls pick on. Enid is trying to escape. Carl tells her he is not going to save her anymore. I still do not like nor trust Enid. Jesus is the Glenn of the Hilltop. "I just want to help." I want Greg and Negan gone. Sasha is Greg's an idiot. Maggie: He's a coward, and they are more dangerous.  Enid is an idiot. Who is this wrecking a perfectly good car?  Carl, of course. You only have the one good eye, Carl.  What is going on at Hilltop?  Fires and music and the gate is open? I bet Gregory did that. 

Why is Maggie so hard-headed? Maggie is already taking charge of Hilltop. I guess this present is from Negan.  Maggie is dribing a tractor. Maggie is such a bad ass. Where was Gregory when his people needed him?  Hiding while a pregnant Maggie, Sasha, and Jesus held it down.  Gregory is the worse. Then, the Saviors show up during his twisted negotiation. Cute little roller skating episode with Carl and Enid. The Saviors aren't as dumb as Gregory thinks. They know he has something to do with the Outpost deaths. He is probably plotting how to Narc on Sasha and Maggie.  

The saviors are surprised that the Hilltop could take care of the walkers. Gregory trying to pretend that he didn't know that the Outpost people are dead.  So, Simon is now going to be in charge of the Hilltop. Any hitches in the giddy-up? These guys...Gregory is trying to turn Sasha and Maggie over?  Jesus is telling him no. Maggie and Sasha were not in the closet.  Simon is asking Gregory to kneel.  Jesus is looking at him as if he is so pathetic. Carl is thinking the most stupid right now. He wants to kill Negan, but he will get everyone else killed. Enid is kissing him to try to convince him not to do something stupid.  Jesus has stepped to Gregory. Maggie just knocked the hell out of Gregory, and that dude took Glenn's Watch. Maggie told him call her by her name Maggie Rhee. Go ahead, Maggie!!!!

Sasha wants Jesus to find where Negan lives, but not tell Maggie. The balloons were for Glenn's grave.  Maggie gave Enid Glenn's watch. Sasha smoking Abraham's stoggie. Carl and and Jesus sneaking into the Saviors compound? What the what, Carl? Until next week!!!

NFL Week 11: Pass the Popcorn

Welcome back, everybody!!! We finally made it to Thanksgiving Break. It has been a long week. Tony Romo made an emotional statement about now being the second string quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Tom Brady and the Patriots lost at home to Seattle. The Green Bay Packers are a hot mess. The Saints can't get out of their own way, and lookey there, my Kansas City Chiefs are in first place in the AFC West.

I know, I know, many people are not saying much about my Chiefs, but the Chiefs are 7-2 going into this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have only lost those 2 games since beginning last year with that 1-5 record. They have the longest current home game win streak with 10.  They are getting Justin Houston back today, and while I don't expect a monster sack game from Justin, his presence is a welcome to the defense.  

The Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers are both under-performing this season.  The Packers are currently sitting in third place in a division they have normally dominated.  Pittsburgh is also under pressure as they sit in second place in the AFC North. Ben Roethlisberger seemed to throw his coach under the bus this week for his team's woes. Aaron Rodgers, however, came to bat for his coach as people begin to criticize Mike McCarthy, but some of his former teammates have come out swinging against Rodgers and his leadership (or lack of) in Green Bay. We are only halfway through the season and the drama!

While last week wasn't a particularly bad week with me, my five losses were teams that just. Seriously, my losses:  Atlanta, San Diego, Green Bay, New York, and New England. What gives guys?  So, I ended last week with a 9-5 record bringing my seasonal record to 90-57.  On the fantasy side, Lucille Swings is still hanging out in first place with an 8-2 record after soundly defeating my foe.  Lochted and Loaded took a loss last week and drops to 6-3.  Fantasy fans, do not forget that this is a bye week for Atlanta, San Diego, Denver, and the NY Jets

Dead Viewing: Season 7, Episode 4-"Service"

***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***

Hey, we're living on Easy Street...okay, I won't torment you with that song tonight. I haven't thoroughly hated a song with so much passion so quickly since Katy Perry's "Firework" earwormed its way into my life. I tell you, I would have broken a lot quicker than Daryl Dixon appears to be. Tonight, we get an extra 25 minutes of show. Hope it is a good one, but good one's usually means someone dies. Long as it is not Michonne or Daryl, I'm cool.

Rick and Michonne are still a couple I see, and apparently, he is sleeping a little to peacefully for her. What did she hide in the fireplace. OHHHHH a nice gun, I see. Where is she going? What is Michonne up to?  What is she keeping watch for? Are Rosita and Spencer still a thing?  Here comes Negan...butthole...Man, I hate that dude.

Funny thing, at the same time Negan said little pig, little pig let me in, the same line was dropped on Walker, Texas Ranger.  He is a little early with his Saviors. Daryl looks a hot mess. Man, I hate Negan.

Rick can't even talk to Daryl or Daryl loses a body part. He has Rick carrying his dang bat.  Who is this lady?  Dwight is such a pizza face butthole.  I want Dwight and Negan to die such terrible deaths. I want Daryl to kill Dwight, and Rick or Maggie to kill Negan, preferably both at the same time. Michone is not good with the gun, but the machete, she is very good at.  Well, she shot a deer.

They found Deanna's stash of videos. Man, Rick is so broken right now. He needs to get his stuff together. The Rick in that video is not entirely dead Negan, and you are stoking the fire. They are pretending that Maggie is dead. Carl is firing off at the people trying to get the medicine. Carl is showing that baby serial killer. At least Carl's hair is better. Where are the guns Rick? Thanks, Carl.

Well, Carl has messed up the gun situation.  Arat is the girl apparently. He insulted the woman, calling her fat. Rick is wants to rip Negan's neck out so bad right now.  They found Daryl's bike, but Rosita is still suspicious of the area. Spencer is so dumb. Like, Negan would not have found them anyway. Negan was already working his way to Alexandria, anyway.  They found out about the bazooka.  Michonne has those guns? Or Tara and Heath? Or Maggie and Sasha? Negan is threatening to kill Olivia the bookkeeper? Really? Neegan is a horrible person.

Hiding guns is not the answer. Rick is preaching to the people about the hidden guns. They just don't get that Negan is now in charge, and he sees the guns as a threat to his being. They realize that Michonne is not there. Spencer is so stupid. What is Rosita doing?  Are these the Saviors that came after them and killed Denise? Ugh, I hate Spencer. How is it that his dead brother was the smarter of the two?  How did he survive as long as he did?

Gabriel is sneaky as hell; he just crept up on Rick. Where does he come from no where?  They think Spencer has them? He's been hoarding food still?!! They found the guns. I hate freaking Spencer. Tormenting Enid for wanting to keep the balloons Glenn had given her. Just tell on Spencer. He's useless anyway. Threatening to kill Olivia unless he tells who had the guns.

Michonne does not want to cooperate, and Dwight is a .... I hate him riding off on Daryl's bike. Negan just continues to torment Negan. Rick is having flashbacks as Negan kills this walker.  Oh, Negan has to die if for nothing else, that last comment to Rick. "Vengeance for the plunderers." on the sign outside of Alexandria. Negan, that would be you...he needs to die a slow painful death...

Watching Daryl leave was depressing. Spencer is such a...Man, he is so stupid. Spencer is such a jerk bringing up Glenn and Abraham. Rick saved your stupid life. He wants to die. Ahhh, Rosita has the gun. That was one of their guns that Michonne had. Michonne is still wanting to fight. Rick is telling Michonne about Shane. Rick knows Judith isn't his daughter. Just admitted it to Michonne. Rick just wants to keep them all alive. Michonne is going to try, but she still wants to fight.  What's burning?  They just burned the mattresses.  I hate Negan. Well, we are off to the Hilltop next week...Until next week.

NFL Week 10: Well, That Wasn't What We Expected...

Welcome back, everyone!!! For better or for worse, the national blight is finally over, and like him or not, Donald Trump will become the next President of the United States of America. Those are words I truly never expected to say. It's kinda like saying the Jacksonville Jaguars are Super Bowl Champions, but at least that junk is behind us for at least 2 years, when the next cycle will drive us into the ground.

So, how was your week? My Chiefs pulled off a win against those Jaguars-barely. Yeah, Alex Smith and Spencer Ware didn't play, and Jeremy Maclin barely played (fantasy peeps, he is out this week), and still no Justin Houston, but seriously, this game should not have been as close as it was.  Mad props to Charcandrick West and Cairo Santos who helped my Lucille Swings team eek out a victory this week. FYI, Travis Kelce, get it together, man!!! You are a pretty good tight end, but son, you are not Tony Gonzalez, you are not going to get those calls, and you need to chill. That $24,000 fine you received this week should be a wake up call. We need you on the field not in the locker room, especially when I play you over Jimmy Graham who would have pounded my opponent into submission, rather than having a 90.70-90.64 skin of my teeth victory.  BY THE BY, JIMMY, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL YEAR?
Speaking of Tony Gonzalez, Friday was the fourth anniversary of Tony Gonzalez scoring his 100th touchdown, the first tight end to do so (for those new to the blog, I was actually there to see him score that touchdown against the Saints in the Super Dome). He later scored 101 in the same game. He currently holds the record for Touchdowns for tight ends with 111, but that record will probably belong to Antonio Gates by the end of the year and Rob Gronkowski in the next few years if he can stay healthy.  Also on Friday, the NFL Network revealed a revamped Top 10-Tight Ends list, and the #1 Tight End of all time?  Tony Gonzalez...nothing else needs to be said. Congrats to the G.O.A.T!!!

Last week, Green Bay and Denver ruined what could have been a perfect week. Even so, I'll take an 11-2 week which brings my record to 81-52. My fantasy teams are also sitting pretty:  Lucille Swings is in first place with a 7-2 record, and Lochte and Loaded is in second place with a 6-2 record. Fantasy fans: Buffalo, Oakland, Indianapolis, and Detroit all have byes this week.

Dead Viewing: Season Seven, Episode Three-"The Cell"

***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***

Welcome back, everyone! I feel that last week's happy little tryst to the kingdom is a short, little break in our collective misery, and this week will be a small walk through hell.

Why are we starting with Who's the Boss? Is this life with Negan, Dwight's view?  Is he sling blade? What's with the mustard? What's with the letters on these guys? Is that why the hanging dude had a letter X? He is eating eggs, but serving somebody dog food?  Oh man, it's Daryl, and he's naked. He is making Daryl Dixon eat a dog food sandwich delivered by Dwight. I hate Dwight with a burning passion. I want him do die a slow death as well.

Are they torturing Daryl with bad pop music? I mean, I would break if you did that to me.  Man, this easy street song is so freaking annoying. Who is this person singing this song?  I feel like Daryl will be George Michael Waking me up before you go-going in a minute. So Daryl now has a letter-A. So, his girlfriend is not dead?  He's ticked that she talked to Daryl. Negan's got the hook-up on everything. Poor Daryl. Where exactly are they?  What are they going to do?  You can be like the zombies, the runners, or like Dwight?  The Choices...

I hate this freaking song...already. I need Dwight to die at the end of that crossbow.  Negan is offering him a girl? He mentions that Dwight hadn't had any action since Eugene bit him downstairs. Serves him right.  Y'all, I'm ready to punch somebody because of this song!!!! Fat Joey didn't lock the door?  He had one job. Plus, how much electricity are they burning through in this camp? Well, that was nasty. I just realized that he is wearing Daryl's vest. I wonder what happened here? Where are these zombies coming from?  The girl found Daryl and told him to go back. that it will be worse if they catch him. that he won't be able to get away. Fat Joey. Why is Daryl so hard-headed? Daryl has a death wish man. Aaaaaaaannnnd there's Negan. Daryl, really?!?!

Get on your knees, Daryl. Just save it for another day. Just say Negan and spare yourself. I freaking hate Negan. All of his men are cultists. They say what ever he says. They even call themselves Negan. Daryl caught the bat like, caught the belt during a whooping. Now, Daryl is in for a beatdown. What happened to the bike? That was the guy from the chicken coop. Is Sherry falling for Daryl? I bet Dwight's been bitten. Serves him right. This guy is not buying into Negan's stuff. This guy is saying he would rather be dead than go back. This guy is saying that Negan is the monster not the walkers. Dwight is just as bad as Negan. Alright D, but you know there is nothing left. So, Dwight kills him? Daryl still has people to live for. I still think Dwight has been bitten.

Dwight's back and sharing cigarettes with Sherry.  He's courting death. Not this song again. I I really, really hate this song, and the monster who recorded it. Dwight is telling him he is lucky. Did he just put a picture of Glenn's body? Oh, I hate this piece of crap...Now, playing Roy Orbison? What the what? The Saviors are just a...Crying, really. Now, Daryl breaks and is crying.  Dwight is a wet turd, man...Negan wanted to marry Tina. That's why he and Sherry ran away. Sherry sacrificed herself to marry Negan save Dwight. He wants Daryl to take Dwight's place. Who are you Daryl?  Daryl refuses to say he is Negan.  Man, he is about to kill Daryl. Daryl is thinking about his "family." That's why he won't break. Daryl is gonna die man...Man, he brought ole boy back to be on the fence. What a piece of crap. I hate Dwight. I guess, we will get to see Rick's group next week. Shaking my head, y'all... See you, next week...

NFL Week Nine: Round and Round

Sigh...Now, everybody, my Chiefs are in the midst of a winning streak and are clearly still in the running to win the AFC West and can take control of second place if they win this week because Denver and Oakland will break their tie when they play each other today. So, why am I not a happy fan girl?  Well, Alex Smith's head bounced of the ground at Lucas Oil Stadium not once, but twice last week, and although the Chiefs say he does not have a concussion, something happened to his noggin because the Chiefs are giving him a break this week and playing Nick Foles in his place. Nick played well last week against the Colts, and I'm sure that he will be fine against the Jaguars, but I'm worried about Alex.  The same thing happened to Chiefs QB Trent Green a few years back, and he was never quite the same. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Speaking of concussions, while Alex Smith was not diagnosed with a concussion, running back Spencer Ware was diagnosed with a concussion, and like Alex, he will not be playing against the Jaguars this week. Then, there is Jamaal Charles. He had a second opinion on his ailing knee, and now he is headed to the injured reserve. See, this is why a Chiefs fan is never happy.  Thank goodness for poor Knile Davis. This kid has had a roller coaster of a week. He was traded to the Packers when it looked as if J. Charles was healthy.  After two weeks, he was waived by the Packers, picked up by the Jets, waived a day later, before being picked back up by the Chiefs. Welcome back, Knile Davis! I hope your second stint with the Chiefs is better than the first. I might need to to pick him up for my fantasy roster.

The biggest game of the day, at least to me, is Oakland and Denver. I'm going to be very, very honest right now. Y'all know I hate each of these teams equally, and I truly don't care which one wins, but at the end of the day, one of these teams will be alone in first place, and the other will join the Chiefs and Charger in the chase. I'm hoping the Chiefs, of course, win so the other team will drop to third, but the Jaguars are no pushover and could easily surprise the Chiefs who are without their quarterback and two of their running backs.

Ben Roethlisberger may make his return to the field this week.  Dallas is continuing to rule the NFC East, as the Patriots are ruling the AFC East. Dallas is flush with QBs right now and are weekly the subject of QB controversy. Minnesota seems to be regressing a bit after their 5-0 beginnings. Atlanta is surprising a lot of people taking over the NFC South from Super Bowl runner up Carolina, who is shockingly in last place with a 2-5 record.  Seattle is barely keeping their head above water in that hot mess of a division that is the NFC West. The AFC North is still up for grabs, for everyone except Cleveland, whose fans basically summed up the team with one sign.

Well, I had a better week than the Cleveland fans.  My fantasy team Lucille Swings connected again and is still holding the 1st place position.  Lochte and Loaded has fought it's way into third place in my second league. Yeah, I'm just as surprised as you are.  I even did a fair job of picking last week with a 9-4 record bringing my year to 70-50.  Fantasy fans:  New England, Cincinnati, Houston, Washington, Arizona, and Chicago are all enjoying their byes this week.

Hey, at least you have Lebron.  Until next week, "The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed." -Eminem
