#2947000 Lesser known spelling/grammar fugups

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 13 September 2014 - 08:11 AM

People using "insure" when they mean "ensure" is my personal peeve.

Also, those who write "could of" as some phonetic yet grammatically incorrect version of the contraction "could've" instead of "could have."


#2943198 Need suggestions for smartphone apps.

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 11 September 2014 - 08:56 AM

Flipboard is my personal favorite. It compiles all of your favorite news sources and lets you create custom magazines.

Weather Underground's WunderMap app has basically real-time radar - way better than Weather Channel

If you travel a lot, download the airline apps you need.

Uber, if you live in a City where Uber is available.

Convert Units is another handy app that I use regularly.

 

 




#2930418 On Cam Newton's Playing Status...

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 07 September 2014 - 10:05 AM

Cammy Cam is gonna play. Two weeks removed from hairline fractures? Come on. Quarterbacks play with these jackets all the time. You don't sit Cam Newton for week one against a division opponent when he has a manageable injury. The man is gonna play.

Do we know that he isn't flamboyant? ESPN didn't keep a camera crew around him for 4 days during the draft because of his football skills.
 

 

Have we seen him parading around with a skirt on and his shirt off as the men are depicted in the photo? No, we haven't. Do we know that he isn't "flamboyant" outside of what we've seen on television? No, we don't. And that's part of the point. The image projects a stereotype that, even though we don't know about Michael Sam, he is a gay man and all gay men must be flamboyant, therefore we must depict him this way. And then we should all have a good laugh about it. What the fug is that?

 

And for the sake of argument, let's assume that he is a flamboyant gay man. Does that make it acceptable to ridicule him? On what fuging planet do you people live? I can't believe that so many people are defending a picture that so obviously ridicules a man for being homosexual. I haven't been to rural North Carolina in a long time. I guess it's easy to forget how prevalent intolerance still is in some parts of the country.

 

See that...I don't have all the information about who you are or where you live, yet I just projected a stereotype onto all rural North Carolinians that isn't accurate. Pretty fuging ignorant, huh?

 

Apologies to everyone else for turning the post a pic thread into the tinderbox momentarily...here's a pic.

COWBOY PRACTICE SQUAD

 

 

 

i love taking shots at the cowboys as much as the next guy but this is not funny in my opinion. it perpetuates terrible stereotypes and i think it should be removed by a moderator. my two pennies.




#2914655 What does it mean?!

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 29 August 2014 - 10:02 AM

I could be wrong, but I think it means that he has a friend with below average imagination and photoshop skills.

#2891448 Toby Gerhart & sleepers

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 15 August 2014 - 11:46 AM

Jarrett Boykin is my deep sleeper. McCarthy loves him and he was quietly balling last year.  If you watched Packers games, you know. James Jones is gone. Boykin is going to get more targets. Davante Adams is not going to get many opportunities. I would ignore the negative crap from camp reports. My prediction is 70 catches, 975 yards, 7 TDs. Yeah. If Jordy Nelson misses any substantive time, the guy is going to have a monster year.

 

I agree that Lamar Miller is a steal at his current ADP. I think Gerhart and Jennings ADP is about right as of today so no longer are they sleepers.

 

I think Mike Wallace is still terribly undervalued. Jeremy Maclin also undervalued at present. And I would take Kenny Stills over Brandin Cooks all day, even in my PPR league.




#2890635 Cam Newton 1 on 1 coming up on ESPN

Assuming you're talking about the same interview that I saw about an hour ago, here it is. Sorry for the mobile link.

#2887389 Which potential starter worries you the most?

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 12 August 2014 - 07:53 AM

DWill. Thirty one year old running backs don't concern defenses. Not concerned about experienced defensive backs that had a down year last year. Not concerned about tackles that our coaching staff clearly believes in yet the huddle collectively does not. Shrug.

#2875945 Need help from non- NC Huddlers

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 04 August 2014 - 09:03 AM

Just a suggestion - since most are likely concentrated in a few states (I'm in Georgia), and you have those covered, anyone that has a nice photo of a landscape from some place they visited could include the photo in a birthday card accompanied by a note that says "Happy Birthday from X." We've been to Puerto Rico and Costa Rica in the last year and could cover those. Just thinking that lots of us probably don't have postcards laying around.




#2875891 Cam makes nice with Peter King

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 04 August 2014 - 08:07 AM

This fuggin guy titled his piece "The Maturation of Cam."

 

Nope, that piece was about the awkward maturation of Peter King.
