Decision 2012: Bears-Lions, Giants-Cardinals; Or Romney-Obama

Tyler Durden's picture


The nation is facing an extremely difficult decision; the outcomes of which could well be career-defining for the protagonists. We are of course talking about the dilemma that the nation faces in choosing Monday Night Football, NLCS Game 7, or the third Presidential Debate. In order to help focus public opinion, we offer the debate drinking game, live-stream scoring, and suggest readers invest in Picture-in-Picture (or have their edible iPad on their lap as the sports get under way this evening). For those who prefer to 'hedge': Obama is 67% likely to win the debate, Detroit are just favored to beat Chicago, and the Giants are favored (on momentum) to beat Arizona - so it seems like the debate is the most one-sided affair (though we suspect will be more contentious).

Baseball for me. The Giants are my team but the starting pitcher for the Cards is from my tiny northern California home town(Population about 2500) so I would not be to upset ether way. His cousin,  who was also a great athlete, was one of my best friends growing up.

http://www.wtso.net or why Hulu is a half aborted piece of shit. I tried to PAY for Hulu for the Simpsons, and they were like "fuck you, no Simpsons on our site bitch. Here is some half assed Sy-Fi filmed on an Iphone for $9.95 a month." A pirate site has EVERY FUCKING EPISODE FOR FREE, and people wonder why Hulu, and general streaming from providers sucks. Quality is better too. Use adblock pro, and tell Hulu/Time Warner/HBO/ESPN to eat a bowl of dick.

A hot bowl of your dumb shit, old business model, hoarding content, fucking everyone in America, pushing shitty content with too many ads, being hyper controling, Blue Ray, Ultraviolet, stick a dick in your ass if you don't pay us, eat a bowl of dick, dick. WHY DO PEOPLE PAY FOR TV WITH ADS? $100 a month for shitty TV, and I have to pay for the DVR to skip the ads. Skip that straight to my nutsack, and see if the fingerprint makes any shapes you might know.

Know what the best part about tonights debate will be? The whole fucking charade will be over in just a few weeks, the phone will finally be silent, and the MSM will have to rely on Honey Boo Boo bullshit to feed their ad budgets again which mean they are that much closer to being BK given the irrelevant pieces of biased shit they are...on the bright side I have a new batch of 8% homebrew on hand!

I don't see "spontaneous protest" or youtube in here.

Seems like a UN ambassador, a secretary of state, a presidential spokesman, endless bleating talking heads and of course the president himself rushing before the camera beating the same drum would merit some attention ;-)

It's not an AIPAC approved "debate" if Iran, nuclear and evil are not used in the same sentence.

Also look for; Israel, democracy, friend, special relationship.


USS Liberty is prohibited.

Romney should hit hard that the best foreign policy is a strong domestic economy.  Being a debtor nation in the trillions of dollars to China makes for an awkward foreign policy.

Somehow, I think the San Francisco Giants could beat the Arizona version of the Cardinals in either sport, baseball or football.

For the record, I choose Giants-Cardinals.

Football is stupid, even more stupid than the non-debate.

But what about the New York Giants against the Cardinals - let's get religion (and sex) into the conversation, too!
OK, I'll really date myself - name two Cardinals from Fordham.

Actually the Chicago Bears are favored over Detroit by 6.5 points:


And it's St. Louis Cardinals not Arizona playing the San Francisco Giants in baseball, though the Arizona Cardinals will be playing the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday in football and the 9ers are favored by a touchdown.

I forgot to mention that Detroit is actually a 2 to 1 underdog to beat the Bears: http://www.vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/las-vegas/line-movement/lions-@-bea..., which is about the same odds of Romney beating Obama in the debate.

Didn't even know there was a debate tonight until I showed up at a sports bar in Seattle and they turned the Lions/Bears game and game 7 of Cards/Giants off to play the debate. Huh? A sports bar? WTF? Oh, that's right, I'm in Seattle.

B) corporate sports events

C) none of the above(read a book)


btw I see there was no danger of getting drunk if you were waiting to hear anything to do with bankster/corporate taxpayer funded bailouts, NDAA, failed 'war on terror', patriot acts, etc., etc..

I didn't watch one minute of any of these "debates".

I would love to vomit huge chunks on any of these assholes; they deserve - all of them - to be laughed at, made fun of, and scorned.

Fuck em' - I  don't believe a single word out of any of their mouths.

I watched sports. Giants game last night was fun. MNF was a bore.

Life's too short to spend it on these fuckballs.

I would love...love...to say that directly into each of their fucking faces.
