Out of the Blue

My NFL picks this postseason prove that I am not infallible in this area, but I am usually more decisive than I've been about picking a winner in the Super Bowl, as I've been on the fence since the participants were announced. I'm torn personally, as I like John Harbaugh better than Jim, but there's no player in the league I dislike more than Ray Lewis, which is probably the most prominent personal opinion that plays into this. In the end, I can't shake the feeling that the 49ers will get it done... which is probably half faith in them, and half my intense desire to not have to watch a celebratory squirrel dance and the accompanying squirrely self-righteousness.

Bonus picks: Adrian Peterson MVP, RG3 Rookie of the Year, and Peyton Manning Comeback player of the year.

R.I.P.: Ed Koch, mayor who became a symbol of NYC, dies.

I would like Ravens to win for Birk, but hope that Ray Lewis dies of herpes the night before the game. He is a killer. Plain and simple.

The NFL will make a huge mistake by putting him in the HoF. His religion can't save him.

That being said - I really want the Niners to win anyway - but hope Moss dies of herpes the night before the game.

Question for our friends across the pond in Britannia. Yesterday I heard an English chap refer to makeup as "slap" - he said, 'She looks pretty good without the slap.' Now I know woman always say 'Let me slap on some makeup.' But I've never heard someone refer to it that way before. Do people in Britain actually refer to it as that?

I'm originally from London although I've been in NYC for 15 years. Never heard it called that in either city. Sounds like fake cockney slang, unless the guy's genuinely from East/South London.

A slapper, on the other hand, is a lady of questionable virtue and/or appearance. That one's used all over the south of England, usually by greasy youths in dodgy nightclubs (as in 'I don't like yours much... proper slapper').


I think you mean a flapper, not a slapper.......

Couldn't agree more with your assessment of Ray Lewis. I heard he killed the deer for that antler stuff and then buried his orange hunting suit.

I heard that four of his friends have all claimed to have done it, and that Ray doesn't know what a deer even is and was somewhere else at the time.

Related to Film vs. Exploring space, I offer this vid on why faking the moon landing was not possible, technically.

That video is actually pretty entertaining. Of course, there are people who say they think it was faked. There are people who say they think the world is flat. *shrug*

Peterson MVP and comeback player of the year!

Except Peterson was injured so late last year, he still had a great season, so he made a tremendous comeback from the injury, but but he did not have a comeback season, because in that sense, he never went away.

As for the question about the Koch days: He was mayor during a time when the city was dirtier, more crime-ridden, and corrupt. And it was better that way. At least that's how my memory is making it out to be.

My sentiments match up pretty well with you, Blue. And mostly for that reason I'm hoping for a 49er blowout. However, I'll predict just a win 31-24.

I only lived in London for six months, but never heard it called slap. May be something new, or just may be something that's only used by a tiny, tiny segment.

Really the only noun version of slap I've ever heard of is a tank-slapper. TOP GEAR FTW!
