#1809229 What's your favorite drink to have at a tailgate?

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 22 June 2012 - 10:12 PM

If the season started today, in my current financial state, Port Republic. 30 rack for 9.99. It tastes like ass, but it'll get you drunk. Weird drunk.

If I had enough money to spend 350 on a helmet for my office, I'd be providing Stone Ruination IPA for everyone wearing Panther gear.

Dude, you can't beat a 30 pack for 10 bucks. I'd drink that all the time for sure.

#1808645 Turner the Burner overweight?

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 22 June 2012 - 11:42 AM

he's been overrated for a couple years.

He seems to have our number every time he faced us the last couple of years. I wouldn't call him overrated any time soon.

#1808190 Ever meet a celebrity?

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 21 June 2012 - 11:05 PM

I did, a couple actually.

Kevin Spacey and Sandra Bullock.

My favorite was definitely Sandra Bullock. She gave me a tip too $50 bucks. She was so nice, and I loved to talk. Apparently she lived in NC for a while. She was very down to earth. This was around 2002 or so. So yeah it was ten years ago. Oh my. I feel old.

Spacey was cool too but not as talkative as Sandra. Of course I was on the job so I couldn't be talking to him. LOL.

I was a banquet server at a very pricey hotel in NC at the time.

#1808161 Bell vs. Bowers

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 21 June 2012 - 10:31 PM

A tackling dummy could of replicated this "respectable" showing from bell. Dude blew. And Ivan you're right. We'll have to suffer through another season with Bell just like we did with Legadu. Wasn't Rivera high on him too? Look where he's not playing this year.

It's all about perspective. I see a guy that did decently with the opportunity he has. You see a guy that sucks.

Legs wasn't going to be the #1 or anything like that. He was a journeyman wide out that Rivera knew would come help the team, it was a no risk situation. He helped LaFell and the other wide outs because he knew the system. He wasn't great, but wasn't that horrible either. Never did Rivera say he's 'the' guy. You're making it bigger than it is.

You just sound pissed off and negative man.

Rivera isn't going to read this and say, "Oh gee that baussneggar guy was right, what was I thinking?"

Yeah, although they do the most half-ass job of putting the stickers on those... I always have to fix them.

Really man? That sucks. It would be cool if they have the stickers separate so you can put them on yourself. I get OCD about these things.

#1806886 Coach Rivera interview on WFNZ today (6/20)

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 20 June 2012 - 05:23 PM

Wow, finally something from Bustin' loose?! They never update their show.

Frank asked if its harder to spell or say most of these players names.

He was asked by he did the open camp. Said it was a great opportunity to show the fans how things are done.

Frank followed up with the question of toughness to Rivera. He said it's important. That people want to get their due but without paying it. Talked a little about michael jordan and how he had a conversation with him. That MJ enjoyed pressure. "Some guys thrive with pressure."

Next question was who si the guy he could count on when he was playing. "Walter Payton without a doubt, he was a rare guy". "Joe montana, Aaron Rodgers, and now our QB, Cam".

"Coach has the game slowed down for you finally? Are things normal now?", Rivera-"Nothing is normal. something will always come up. which is good to be on edge, you don't want to become comfortable. The good things are becoming repetitive, which makes it easier."

Mini camp question, How good you feel about the team? "The offense is excellent. Name Smith and LaFell, loves those two WR. Said he'd like to find that third guy whoever it is. (not mentioning gettis). He loves the line, he's excited about the running back tandem. The TE position is solid with Olsen. But would like one more guy to step up. Loves the Guards and Tackles, mentions Amini, catching up and handling stuff well.(did not mention Otah). The offense has to be consistent. And wants the to score. Touchdowns not FG.

Defensive side of the ball said they have gotten better by getting injured players back. Went on about who went down, we all know who. Beason, davis, Edwards. he said they never stable at the safety position. They made moves to solidify it. They brought in Kuechly to reassure the corp. mentions that the Defensive line is stacked and that they have to remember they started 2 rookies and 2 second year players in the line. People have to be patient with that group. They hve to find a 3rd corner, talks about Capt that he can flex to the Nickle, loves Gamble as expected. even talked about the punters and the Kicker position. Special teams pilares looked solid and seems to have that job.

Frank asked about the sophomore slump, how to avoid it. "Its about his work ethic. That he does not become complacent. That he has to keep working and working. Also it's not just him. They can't put it all on him. That they have to understand that they have to protect him and put play makers around him. That they extended smitty for that. LaFell is developing. went and got Olsen. They put a very solid line to protect him and they have to grow together as an offense. It's not just about him it's about everyone."

Frank calls out Otah. Leads to how he's not been on the field and how he's a beast when he is on the field. "how important is it that he comes back for this offense to become better?"

"He is a difference maker, but in Jeffs case, the positive thing for us is that we like what we have at the Tackle position. (LOL OTAH IS GONE!)Gross is great and Bell has done a fantastic job. He stepped up, and given the circumstances. He has a full off season. Then Gary williams was well, Bruce Campbell was traded for and he loves what he's doing. Jeff otah si great, if he comes back, great. if not, we're moving on. The balls on his court. We expect him to compete. We have 4 guys that are more than enough to play that right tackle position. It's up to jeff if he can come back."


Was asked what he's doing for a month. Said he's going on a trip he was inspired. He's going to go to Normandy and go to the beaches. The history aspect about it. He's a very patriotic guy, good to know.

#1806289 Surprise team of 2012?

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 20 June 2012 - 03:02 AM

A bit late but eh, here it is.

I didn't feel like editing out the other team. But there goes the whole 'under the radar' theme. I believe teams will be gunning for this offense now. Which will make it that much sweeter when we beat them.

(Apologize for the video. it's really pixelated. not sure why.)

(edit, I had put this in the lounge first. I need to get to sleep..geesh.)
