Welcome to the 16th installment of Love it ? or Hate it ?..as usual we take a subject and tell you whether we love it or hate it..feel free to throw in your 2-cents. Humor us..tell us which subjects you love and which ones you hate.

-----------------

The panel this week consists of Harry Callahan, i B4 e, Curly Lambeau and Packbrew42.

Our special guest this week is G.O.A.T.

-------------

The word of the week is

-----------------------

The first subject is Peter King...if you don't know who he is your on the wrong website.

----------------------

Harry: Love him.

 

I never miss his stuff..i don't agree with him all the time but so what !! You may dislike him but if you say you dont read his product your either lying or not a sports fan. He is required reading.

-----------------

Curly:Love him.

 

He does good work. His Monday Morning column is one of the things I look forward to. He always does a good job, I think, of not over-hyping things. He's a good writer.

-------------------------------

i B4 e: Love him.

 

I love Peter, Can I call you that Mr. King? I love MMQB. I loved it when he shared about his daughters. However, I do hate him in on aspect - his mancrush on Brett Favre. Come on Pete, try not to be so obvious about it. The only person with a bigger mancrush on Favre is Madden.

I have it on good authority that Peter and Madden are the masterminds behind Favre waffling on retiring. They reprogrammed him into thinking he still wants to play. That way they can keep loving on him. It would crush King if Favre really quit playing football.

-------------------

PackBrew42: Hate him.

 

He does some okay stuff but I really don't care for his MMMB and I think he re-hashes alot of what others say. He seems to think of himself as more important than he actually is, but he isn't....and I'm sick of his stupid "Coffee Nerdness" portion....bleh.

I don't drink coffee, love the smell of it, but if you're filling up part of your column about that quaint little coffee shop where you got _______ Peruvian Blend, I don't give a horse's patoot.


If you look at the picture of him, he kinda looks like he should be a comedian...or an equally fat, but far less senile, and far less Brett Favre man-loving than John Madden.

--------------------------- 

G.O.A.T.: Hate him.

 

The dude's an idiot. He thinks he's a bigshot because he works for SI or whatever but he's never right on anything he says and is often proven wrong even by some of FN's idiots.

----------------

The second subject is Chriss Angel..Mind Freak.

-----------------------

Curly: Love him.

 

Chriss Angel, the mind freak, eh? Well, I don't think I know him, but I'll still go love him. He looks like a magician, and you gotta' love magicians.

----------------

i B4 e: Hate him.

 

His name says it all - Freak. He's just a two bit hack who isn't worthy of my comments.

------------------------

G.O.A.T.: Hate him.

First of all, he spells his name with two S's. That's reason enough to hate the guy. Secondly, he looks like he's emo or something when you look at his Wikipedia page. Thirdly and finally, he's an old fart. 40 years old and he still does magic?

-------------------------

PackBrew42: Hate him.

 

Chriss Angel - Hate him. Hey Chriss, in every other part of the freaking English speaking world, Chriss is spelled C-H-R-I-S. Oh, and magic is fake moron. How'd that NBC show do? Oh, it was cancelled, I'm sorry I asked.

-------------------

Harry: Love him.

He sort of has this Slash from Guns-N-Roses thing going on that is sort of annoying..but i'm not watching him..i am trying to figure out how he is doing the tricks. I must say some of his stuff is mind-blowing..never saw anything like it. 

----------------------

The third subject is Dr.Z

-----------------------------

PackBrew42: Hate him.

 

Hate him..and not because he hates all things Green Bay....I guess he is sort of a NY homer, but if he's a Jets fan, well that's understandable then. I bet the Ragin Redhead that is his wife knows more about football than he.

----------------- 

Curly: Love him.

 

I love Dr. Z. He's an absolute hater of all things Packers and a shameless homer for New York, but he's really snarky and he's been covering the NFL since before the first Superbowl. He does an annual column where he grades the commentators, and I remember the one where he ripped Joe Theisman a new one. I felt so vindicated! Like, "YES! Reap it, Joe! You ROT, and now everybody knows it! Sic Semper Tyrranus!!" When he starts talking about wine, though, I just skip down.

---------------------

Harry: Love him.

Someone once said he has watched more N.F.L. games than anyone on the planet..he tapes them all and then pours over them. I believe this statement..this guy has forgotten more about football than any Fannation knucklehead will ever know.

----------------


G.O.A.T.: Hate him.

 

The one that works for SI (hate him) is usually wrong, like King. The one that wrote a book on how to pick up, seduce, and hook up (love him) is cool. The dude is such a playa that he wrote a book for other guys who don't have his magical way with the ladies.

-----------

i B4 e: Love him.

 

Dude I totally love Dr. Z, but not in that way. The man has forgotten more about football than the collective NFL bloggers on FanNation will ever know. Nobody knows football near as in depth as Dr. Z. Sorry BigBen.

It would totally rock to hang with him and the Flaming Redhead in New Zealand. Dr Z, if you can get SI to pay for it, this is an open invitation for you to invite me to New Zealand with you.

-----------------

The fourth subject is The Girls Next Door.

-------

i B4 e: Hate it.

 

Myeh. They have big fake boobs and the IQ less than that of tree moss.

--------------------------

G.O.A.T.: Hate it.

Hugh Hefner gets to have three hot girls live with him. The three girls actually enjoy sharing one old guy. And the three girls are really hot. I couldn't tell you what happens on the show though since I don't pay much attention to that kinda crap.

-------------------

PackBrew42: Hate it.

  

You have to sleep with that thing that is nothing but bones & skin? Gross....and sorry, but Playboy is pretty irrelevant nowdays...most of their women in Playboy are blondes and most of them are not that great looking. In fact, most of them have just big knockers but Butter Faces...not to mention that a rock has a higher IQ than most of them. What a filler show.

---------

Harry: Hate it.

I might stop on it for a few minutes while channel surfing..the girls are easy on the eyes but harsh on the brain when they talk..bubblehead-a-rama here. Hef is getting up there in years but is still a hero to me..the dude is a legend in all things women...puts out a great magazine..even though i just subscribe for the articles.

-----------------------

Curly: Hate it.

 

HAHAHHAH!! Watching shallow, stupid, plastic dolls tell Hef how good looking he is... He treats objects like women, man! I don't just hate this show. I loathe it.

----------------------

The fifth subject is E.S.P.N's Chris Mortensen.

------------------------

G.O.A.T.: Love him.

He's one of the few guys on ESPN that I actually like. The rest make me want to go all Joker with a knife on someone's jugular. Oh, and Mort's a pretty good writer, too.

------------------------

Harry: Love him.

I used to read his stuff in The Sporting News and liked it a lot.

I think he may be my favorite sports reporter..and i agree with Curly's assessment that he gets to the point and is done..thats what i like about him.

He is selling the story not himself...and when he is talking back and forth with some loudmouth back at the studio like Sterling Sharpe..who's suits are are loud as he is..he just gives the Mort smile..banters a bit and wraps it up.

------------------

i B4 e: Love him.

 

Mortensen: Love Him
I only love him because everyone else does.

----------------------

Curly: Love him.

 

Sure, I'll say I love Mort. I like how he's not goofy or zany. He just tells us what he knows in a calm, even voice. He gets to the point and he's done. I respect that. ...he's Brett Favre's mouthpiece, but... I'll forgive him for that. A man's gotta' earn a livin' somehow.

-------------------

PackBrew42: Hate him.

 

Hate him...only b/c I don't want to be a conformist like everybody else who answered this question. But no really, he's one of the better NFL analysts for ESPN (behind John Clayton whose the best) but I kinda dislike the fact that he's Brett Favre's personal ESPN mouthpiece....but I suppose its better to have him as your mouthpiece than Gushin Greta Van Susteren throwing meatball questions at him (him being BF #4).

---------------------- 

The sixth subject is Discovery Channels Deadliest Catch.

------------------------

Harry: Love it.

I guess i do..i have only watched like 10 minutes at a time if i happen to stop on it..i just have one question..do you think these guys order King crab when they go out to dinner ?

-------------------

Curly: Love it.

 

Love it love it love it! I've spent half a Sunday watching Deadliest Catch marathons. It's cheesy when they play Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive" in the opening credits, but then you watch the show and realize: holy cow, I can't believe these guys DO this stuff. ...fishing in the Bering Sea, where you've gotta' watch out so that you're not in a spot where the ocean might suddenly freeze up and crush your boat... That's man-style, baby!

Sig Hansen Rulez!

----------------------

i B4 e: Love it.

 

Man, I would love to do that. Dude, if I were 20 years younger with no responsibilites, I would so be there.

Dang. Now I want to go fishing.

----------------------------------

G.O.A.T.: Hate it.

I can't stand watching that show. I hate fishing. I hate being in the middle of the ocean. What's the point of watching a show that's based on true stories in which guys almost die trying to catch one damn fish?

-------------------------

PackBrew42: Hate it.

Don't like fishing, didn't like it the 2-3 times I have done it and hate eating fish (except haddock & Filet o Fish @ Mickey D's - but only Fridays during Lent). So naturally if I don't like fishing or eating my fish, watching people fish holds no interest to me (though I'll admit to watching fishing when its "Modern Marvels" on the History Channel).

---------------------- 

And the seventh and last subject is HBO and CBS analyst Boomer Esiason.

------------------------------

G.O.A.T.: Love him.

Cool name. Good quarterback. He was a commentator for MNF back when MNF had good commentators (not Tony Kornheiser). Oh, and he reportedly still does weightlifting in his late 40s.

---------------------

i B4 e: Love him.

 

I love Boomer. He is one of the few ex players turned broadcaster who is actually worth listening too, The guy knows his stuff and he isn't pretentious about it. I wish he would call all the games.

----------------------

PackBrew42: Love him.

A damn good QB during his career that was always on horrible Nati teams. One of the best CBS analysts too (and there aren't many good ones at CBS to begin with).

---------------------

Curly: Love him.

 

Boomer? Alright, I love him too. He's better as a commentator and analyst than he is as a columnist, but he seems to enjoy his job, doing it seriously and yet keeping it in perspective. Him and Dan Marino are good on the set together, respectful yet competitive.

----------------

Harry: Love him.

I have come around full circle on Boomer..i used to hate him. On NFL TODAY he is not afraid to tell Shannon Sharpe he is full of crap..on air.

Dan Marino does it to Sharpe also but he always does a playful buddy poke to the ribs with his elbow... Boomer will just tell him straight out and then roll his eyes and look back at the camera.

I admire that..i hate both Sharpe brothers..so i root for Boomer now. Aw crap i should have saved that opinion and put them in the next blog..oh well.

Jyoti's corner.

 Jyoti has just arrived..she was running a little late today.

-----------------------

 

Curly: Hi Jyoti, thanks for talking to me today. For my first question, I wanna' know...have you ever seen the rain...comin' down on a sunny day?

-----------------

Jyoti: Hi Curly...HA ! HA !..i love Creedence. Does the sprinkler count ? we have one of those spinner types with the four spouts.

I sometimes sit in the center of it and grab two of the spouts like handles and my friends turn the water on real slow and i spin around..get wet and have a ball.

But there is always some joker that cranks it up full blast and i get flung off into the yard.

-------------------------

 

Curly: So, as I recall, you previously answered that you don't get tired of people asking you to pose next to stuff. You said, as I remember, that you don't mind and enjoy bringing joy to others in this way.

So, my next question is expanding on that topic: What has been your favorite thing to pose next to (and, if you have it, could you provide a picture)?

--------------------

Jyoti:This is the thing that i liked posing next to the best..i can blow a bubble the size of my head with one of these puppies.

 

----------------------

Curly: I'm wondering if people ever let you keep the stuff that you pose next to (or do you get some other kind of compensation, y'know...for the effort)?

------------------------------

Jyoti: Yeah they usually let me keep the stuff..we usually just throw it in a garage sale..i have a boat load of helmets..pencils..band-aid boxes..safety pins..coins..keys..marbles..you name it.

--------------------

Curly: Is there anything that you're hoping somebody will ask you to pose next to in the future? ...y'know...are there any posing projects currently in the works?

----------------- 

Jyoti: I was asked by the N.B.A. to do one with Yao Ming..but man..i would only come up to sock level on that freak.

-----------------

 

Curly: Okay Jyoti, before I ask my final question, I'd like to compliment you on the way you handled that situation with IAM last week where you maced him. He needs a good macing every once in a while. And, don't worry, it's not the first time he's been maced, so, I'm sure he's gotten over it just fine.

However, I wonder if I might ask a bit of a personal question. Is 14 considered too young to date in India, or have you started dating yet? And, if you have, have people ever tried to set you up with other little people, such as this guy?

------------------

Jyoti: He's so cute Curly..AHAHAHAH !!..but no.. same as in America..i am 14 and still just a kid..i do like this kid Kenneth at school though..he's dreamy.

------------------

 

Curly: Okay, well, there are lots of other questions that I'd like to ask, but I think I've kept you long enough. Thanks for talking to me today, Jyoti, I really appreciate it. Keep smilin', keep shinin'!

And, to everybody else... stay classy, Cincinnati!

--------------------

Well that's it folks..we hope you liked it..if not..as always..we could give a crap.
