More than I could ask for




Gravy




It's gonna be a helluva long two weeks.
But that's okay.  Could be worse.

  1. Bourbon buddy, bourbon! Jesus, was that a hard game to watch. Kudos to you and your team. Go Giants! (I gotta to root for an NFC team, even one from Jersey.)

  2. Congrats Baydog! Hope the Giants can get the job done at the big dance. It's been sooo long since the Redskins amounted to anything that I'm starting go numb--but hey, the 'Skins might be losers but they're my losers!

  3. I think the Pat's are a better match up for the Giants. First, The Pats did not win that game Baltimore lost it. Second, New England is now facing an "elite" QB vs a "good" QB. Combine that with a strong NY defense and pass rush, My guess (and I have not checked) Vegas is going to favor the G-Men. Tillerman do you want to weigh in on this?

  4. Baydog, that was a gravy win. I've been rooting for your Giants since my Lions bowed out early.

    Doug, I thought I saw that the Pats are favored by 3 points.

    Oh yeah, I noticed 2 Spartans (Devin Thomas and Greg Jones) were doing a pretty nice job for your guys on special teams!

    1. my2fish,

      I will check tonight, I know the spread will be close but I would be shocked if Vegas favored New England!

  5. Doug, Pat is a good guy. My three eldest grandchildren look on him as their other grandfather. I'm not sure what to say about Pat's. Pat's what? Pat's house? Pat's girlfriend? Pat's car?

    I don't know much about G-Men. Do you mean the 1935 Warner Brothers movie? I never saw it. Or do you mean FBI Special Agents? I don't know any personally.

    What does this all have to do with gravy? Are you asking about Pat's gravy? I didn't even know he made gravy.

  6. ... I just love it when Tillerman coyly pretends not to know wassup with the pointy football game

    ... of which he likely watched every minute.

  7. Doug must mean Pat's Steaks, which would, indeed, be a good "match up with the Giants", although they are more traditionally paired with the Iggles.

  8. Nah Mojo, Tillerman has been drinking Cabernet somewhere with Rod Blagojevich.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Don't think that's right, Baydog.

    Blagojevich has been banned by the Illinois legislature from ever drinking Cabernet again.

  10. I have not been drinking Cabernet with anyone called Rod. But I did have stuffies for lunch today at the Brick Alley Pub in Newport.

  11. Or Barolo with Rulovich.....

    I hear if you sit in the back dining room, it's quieter.

    ReplyDelete
  12. We were seated in the front room today, likely because it was a quiet day and we arrived early.

    I had to take Tillerwoman's toe to see the doctor this morning because of an injury it sustained on our recent sailing trip to the Dominican Republic. Afterward the toe and I decide to go out for lunch in Newport. (Tillerwoman, thankfully, is still attached to the toe.)

    I don't know Mr. Rulovich either. But our coach last week was Javier Borojovich aka 'Rulo'. Is that who you were thinking of?

  13. Sorry Bay Dog, hate to bring up anything related to Philadelphia but O Docker referenced a place located located on South 9th Street, Wharton Street and East Passyunk Avenue (its a triangle)in the city of brotherly love.

    Pats, King of Steaks is a gastronomic orgasm! O Docker how I miss that place, and Gino's is pretty good if the line is to long at Pats. Tillerman did you ever have a Philly cheese steak, nirvana baby! nirvana!

  14. Mr. Tillerman, might I ask how long you have had this relationship with your wife's toe?

    Were there other instances when you entertained the toe prior to its regrettable trauma in the DR, and if so, was Mrs. Tillerman aware?

    Were you in any way responsible for the toe's trauma?

    (BTW, I envy your stuffies, which we don't have in Vienna.)

    ... perhaps I should have chosen another word than "envy"

  15. Doug, I did go to Philadelphia once. I don't recall eating any nirvana babies there. But I do remember that there is a bell in that city with my name on it.

    Dr. Freud, what happens in Cabarete stays in Cabarete.

  16. Your name is Liberty? Tillerman?, I like it, it rolls out quite well. Actually I knew there where 4 names on the bell (I believe I gained that knowledge from a Nicholas Cage movie). Anyway I got this from Wikipedia (who can dispute the accuracy of Wikipedia). The names are as follows John Pass, John Stow, Rocky Balboa and Leviticus. Please tell me you are Tillerman Leviticus, that would be so cool. I loved how you kicked Apollo Creeds ass!

  17. Rocky Leviticus?

    With the numbers of bloggers making an exodus from the blogging scene, this could be the genesis for a whole new blogging trend. I think I'm changing my blogging name to Duderonomy.

  19. I have already written a post titled Numbers. Most readers seem to like 43 the best.

  20. And what a revelation that was.

  21. congrats!

    tried to say that on Monday but my office computer won't let me comment here!

    Facebook, fine. Proper Course, fine. Baydog? Nope, don't even think about it. Don't know why. I mean if anybody's blog would get firewalled at a children's publishing company, it would be one that goes around using a salacious number like 43 all the time, right?

  22. You work at a children's f***in' publishing company?
