There’s not much happening today, and there’s not much to comment on. Bountygate? Yeah, we’ve covered that already. A bit. Breesmageddon? Ditto. Um, let’s see…Bountygate?

This is why everyone hates this part of the offseason. Before the draft, you can speculate endlessly on free agency. During training camp, you can speculate endlessly on what it all means. During the season, you can endlessly dissect the last game and the next one.

But right now? All you can do is wait. Or rehash everything that’s already been discussed to the point of throwing your beer in your best friend’s face if he dares to bring up that subject one more fucking time!

Which is why today’s special ain’t beer. What we need is good, red meat.

Sorry, it’s a soy burger.

The Saints signed Akiem Hicks. That’s something. It’s surprising that they found enough money to do so, considering that Benson’s swimming pool full of cash now has a sign on the diving board: “Reserved for Drew Brees.” Then again, maybe the Saints are tired of playing this game, and this is a shot across Tom Condon’s bow. “You’ve pushed us too far—there will be no higher offer. Push us some more, and Brees can play under the tag.” So even signing your highest draft choice might be a bad sign. Yeeesh. What an offseason.

And my cat’s still missing, God damn it.

SaintsNation’s Zac Kimble has an interview with reserve safety Isa Abdul-Quddus, one of the surprises of last summer’s training camp. Abdul-Quddus does not explain how, with that name, he ended up at a Catholic University; but he does explain how it feels to hear 80,000 insane fans chanting “Who Dat!” Will that satisfy you until tomorrow? I don’t want beer and soy burgers on the walls.

Let’s widen this up and consider the whole league. Ooh, the late games are getting moved back by ten minutes. That’s significant. We can discuss this for about…two minutes. If we try real hard.

Or, in the category of Really Bad Ideas, Robert Kraft is still touting foreign franchises. Open a shop in London, Roger, and I quit. A bunch of us feel the same way. Not that you care.

Or how about this: Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has come out in support of gay marriage. Now THAT’s a bar subject. Have at it.

On the Jukebox

Some songs were Really Bad Ideas the first time around. Why do they still get air time? I heard this one yesterday in, of all places, a book store. You know, where edumacated peoples goe. Yet here was Jerry Reed (who’s from Atlanta) singing about Cajuns. Oh, those wacky Cajuns…they’re so colorful, living in swamps and all. I think 45 miles southeast of Thibodaux Looziana puts you in Bobby Hebert’s kitchen.

    That jukebox selection is an oldie. I used to like hearing that song on my dad’s radio, because it was more interesting than the rest of the songs I heard on my dad’s radio. Ah, good times. Where’s that 151 sour?

    Sending good vibes to your cat – not that cats are inclined to listen to anyone.

    Nothing wrong with a good soy burger. Assuming that there’s any such thing as a good soy burger; I’ve certainly never seen the evidence.

    Long week; I need something extremely cold and somewhat beerish. Of course, this is probably what I really need. But I’m guessing you’ve only got one of those things behind that bar…

        Heh.

        Presumably, you have two of those things plus the beer, unless you’ve had a mastectomy.

        Oh, it’s that kinda place! Damn, I just hope Mrs Boudin never catches me here.

        Remember, what happens at the WDSC…

        …is entirely open for public view, isn’t it?

        Across the whole fucking World Wide Web.

        Shit.

        Should I put on some pants?

      Soy burgers are terrible. Black bean FTW.

    Boy, did things go downhill after I stepped out for awhile.

    I always miss out on all the fun. Like tonight at Franco’s movie night, when one of the dads in attendance flashed a lifeguard at the top of the waterslide, then slid down after her when she tried to abandon ship. My son told me about it. Great.
