Thursday Night Pick

Heyo!  Sorry that I’ve been M.I.A. lately, but after finally finding full time employment, it will be tough to contribute to Theheadrush as much as I have been in the past.  I’ll still make the weekly picks column but now, it’ll go up on Saturday instead of Thursday.  In the meantime, here’s a few quick hits to satiate the millions (cocks head, pauses) AND MILLIONS of Headrush readers:

A.) If you haven’t ever read Drew Magary’s dick joke jamboroo on Deadspin, go do yourself a favor and check it out.  It’s what I look forward to every Thursday and this week, he nailed two things on the head.  1.) Those old dudes who have been to every Super Bowl are lame and, quite frankly, pathetic.  Why would you want to go to a Super Bowl if your team isn’t playing?  Every sportswriter says that the Super Bowl is the weakest of all finals sporting events.  Old men: get a new hobby. We should not be celebrating these men, we should be shaking our heads at their stupidity.

2.) He is reading “Devil in the White City” which is the book I am currently reading and can’t recommend highly enough.  It’s one part the history of the planning of the world’s fair and one part “hey look this psycho bought a block of land in Chicago, built a hotel and murdered people in it!”  Then this creep sold their bodies to science, and cashed in on their life insurance policies. A good read.  Which brings me to….

B.) Luke Scott.  Oh you poor dumb idiot. Besides saying Obama wasn’t born in America, Scott had this little nugget of wisdom: “80 years ago, 50 years ago, a man would walk up to another man and go in for a loan. He’d extend his hand, he’d shake it and he’s say ‘I’ll pay this back.’ He would do it.”

Scott, Scott, Scott.  No he wouldn’t.  The serial killer I mentioned above, he took out loans from everyone he could and guess what?  HE NEVER PAID THEM BACK!  Let’s forget the fact that throughout the article, Scott is saying, “Know your history” and then he doesn’t even know his.

A dumb baseball player.  Shocker.

It’s no country for old men, Scott, now go back to doing what you do best: shooting harmless deers with big ass shotguns and hitting for one of the most terrible franchises in sports.

C.) The Thin Red Line.  You got 4 hours to spare?  Watch this movie.  It is really, really good.  It got me thinking about my favorite war movies.  Red Dawn is number one, obviously, but where do all the others fall?  Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now, Letters from Iwo Jima, Saving Private Ryan.  How say you Headrush readers?  Have at it in the comments.

And for the love of God….COMMENT!  It makes writing these articles that much easier knowing that there are actual people out there reading.

D.) Beautiful Girls.  The best winter movie of all time.  I could watch this thing 100000 times in a winter and still not get tired of it.  It’s like the Ritz Crackers of movies.  You forget how good they are, but then when you remember, all four sleeves are going to be devoured and all reels of film are going to be watched.

Stay cool.  Stay cool forever.


You know, I liked this movie when I was 16.  Now that I’m almost 26, and almost the age of all the characters, I like it even more.

Now go sand my lots.

As for tonight…I like the Colts -3.5.  Something tells me that Peyton Manning is going to put up a big number.  Let’s predict the score, too, shall we?  Colts 31-17.  Titans score on an early INT return and on a kick off return by Rob Mariani or whatever his name is.  Randy would like that, right boss?
