Whitt's End: 4.8.11

Categories: Whitt's End

Whitt's End - reaper.jpg
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:

*So Nuggets coach George Karl wants some of the Mavs, huh? "If we had to pick and choose, we would probably say 55 percent Dallas and 45 percent Oklahoma City," he says of his preferred playoff opponent. "Only because Oklahoma City is athletic like we are and they have two great players," he told ESPN radio. Honestly, I don't blame him one bit. The Nuggets used their superior athleticism and speed to win three of four over Dallas this season and whipped them, 4-1, in the second round of the playoffs in 2009. I can't help but wonder know things would be different if the Mavericks hadn't lost their second-best player -- Caron Butler -- on New Year's Day. Take away any team's No. 2 and there will be a significant drop-off. Right, Miami Heat?  

*After beating Colorado last night in their home finale, your Dallas Stars aren't dead. Yet. They've won three straight and yet with two games left they need some help. Can't help but think back to this gut-wrenching loss. Sorry.

*While the Rangers are off to a 6-0 start, the Boston Red Sox are 0-6 and have been outscored 38-16. Two things to keep us from pronouncing them the Dead Sox: 1. There are 156 games over six months remaining; 2. In 2007, the Mavs started 0-4 and finished an NBA-best 67-15. In other words, it's early.

*Sad day in radio. Jagger has been a fixture in this area for decades, but this was his last show as the morning host on 105.3 The Fan. Dude is a class act, very professional to the end. Come Monday, The Fan's sportsier mornings will be manned by New School with Shan and RJ.

*Tiger Woods meanders to a 1-under 71 in the opening round of The Masters. He trails leaders Rory McIroy and Alvaro Quiros by six shots. Six. Yet this morning the ESPN headline blares "Tiger in Contention!" Not that Tiger is out of the tournament by any means, but "in contention" seems a little bit pander-ish, doesn't it? It is, in fact, the reason a lot of folks root against him.

*Hot.

*Not.

*Keep seeing Southern Cal offensive tackle Tyron Smith pegged to the Cowboys with the No. 9 pick in numerous NFL mock drafts. Dallas hasn't drafted an OL in the first round since way back in 1981 with Howard Richards. Smith is a beast, but he makes me wonder what happened to previous to-the-Cowboys-trendy-pick Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. He'll be at Valley Ranch for a visit next week, so maybe we'll ask him.

*I'm very conflicted. Don't like her Tea Party-ish politico views, but I really enjoy the view of Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

*Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls is having an MVP season. I won't argue that. But nobody carries the ball like him when dribbling. Saw one of his signature moves against the Celtics last night, and this just in: You can't -- legally, anyway -- take the ball in your left hand and move it from your left hip to outside your right foot on a cross-over. It's been a subtle, slow progression from "shuffling feet" traveling to "breaking ankles" highlghts, but I betcha old guards like Bob Cousy and even Derek Harper don't recognize the game these days.

*Had this discussion on the radio the other day: If given $1 million post-tax, could you comfortably retire? I suck at math and money, but my feeling is that of course you could. Keep a modest lifestyle, yeah. You couldn't pay off your house and buy one for mom and Jaguars for all your kids, etc. But it's doable, right?

*Good to see former Florida coach Urban Meyer spending so much time with his family. I honestly didn't realize he was related to Mack Brown.

Richie, they said Tiger was in contention 6 strokes out, because they know golf and they know Augusta. Two things you don't know.

top things yanks think about rednecks:-how did they even put an army together during the civil war?-"souths gonna do it agin" DO WHAT, lose again?-why are rednecks so dirty funny?

ps-more Real Kergo....I hope I filled in well this week; except for not mentioning any recipes. I don't cook. Die ALL FAKE KERGO. Grow a nutsack? Yup.

Dear Fake Kergo, I hit the "like" button to make your day buddy........welp, time to change your manpon! BTW, a little testy? Try Midol. Methinks you used multiple emails addresses my flacid, gay friend. AND, everytime you envoke the Kergo legend it grows.....you fucking faggot! Are you retarded "fake kergo"? Do you not get this game? He he. Tell mom "hi" when she's locking you in the basment, so you don't hurt the local cats-freak?!!!!

ps-I know that invoke is spelled wrong above (git over it). You generate as much excitement as a veggie burrito at a football game-Lame? Si'.

The kergo legend grows on a low rated blog? I won't steal that spotlight from him.

I'm rob m? That one might actually be true.

The lame insults about tampons, homosexuality, and whatever else? Not interested.

You liking the comment doesn't change the fact that everyone was easily duped by a. Nonsensical rant. Until you can undo that, I win. And as long as you are a bitch on an online blog, I win.

Monday I'm going to post as "fake Kergo" Rob, and then use 14 email accounts, and hit the "like" button like 1200 times- and show everyone how fucking gay I am........LOOK HOW MANY HITS I GOT ON A FAKE POST'-"he he". Then giggle like motorcycle Greggo.

Rob Em's passions:

-pressing the "like" button and saying, bitch-MMA crap-type blogging in momma's basement-working at Walmart, cause I got fired from Sears-try to make valid points on a blog I actually think is "low rated"

Questions we have for Rob:

-why? to all of the questions!?

ps-are you that guy that lives down the street that lives with his mom, and practices with his nunchecks everyday, like 2:30? Well cool, uhhmmmm, special people need cool stuff to do.........LIKE PRESS THE "LIKE" BUTTON UNTIL YOUR FINGERS BLEED.

Ok, welp, you win!

Dear Kergo, Can we now refer to Rob Em as "like button Robem"?

The "fake Kergo" described above was posted by Rob Em and his 12 email accounts; ya'll ain't foolin' nobody! Maybe a girl should make her way into said life? wHO HAS SHIT FOR BRAINS rOB? You don't have shit for brains, but gravy-queen? YUPPER!

Sorry titty baby, but I can point to fake kergo posts with more "likes" and more responses than the real kergo could ever hope for.

Face it. His schtick aint hard to do. It taint funny, either. What's real sad was u dumbasses bit hard on some of the fake posts. That makes the kerg lovers bigger fuck ups than he is.

Long live Rooster, Addison, The Fan, Audi, and the Aggies.

Dmkergo

Here is an idea; get your own schtick. Maybe you could be the "gayest" poster of all time!Sounds like you envy the Kerg's. Secretly gay? It's ok buddy, we understand. The Ticket and Howard Stern ain't hard to do either, but, it uniquely there product. Butthurt, methinks yes.

Cornbread ass? Methinks you have that also. Now go to the basment before moms beats you with a switch.

More Kergo!

Fake_kergo
Fake_kergo

Fake likes? It's prettt obvious from the response by real dirty p1, storm 71, webbs broken shoulder, etc that the likes were legit.

Skipping the usual insults from you, and it looks like you got nothing after that. I think instead of going by rob from now on I'm going by fake kergo. Watching the. Stupidity after each post is too good.Please try to get new material though. The "you have a dumb job / you do karate" stuff could get old fast.

Welp, more recipes, more lakes, more fake names, more Plano references, and more webbs broken shoulder. More chokin' down on richie's olive branch. More me!

Larry in Frisco is so awesome that tomorrow I'm gonna choke down a Kenny burger in Frisco just for him. 1PMish I think. Just swallow all that big ground beef down!

Any idiot can use 8 email accounts and press the "like" button you fucking tool! Long live East Dallas, The Ticket, Honda and The Longhorns! Bitch.

ps-sounds like someone be a little jealous.......ow, poor litta fakey wakey kurgie wurgie-faggot!

One problem with your little theory, shit for brains. Making things up doesn't make them true.

http://blogs.dallasobserver.co...

I didn't use multiple email addresses, and the comments after my post pretty much back that up. People thought it was the greatest post ever. Really I just said a bunch of incoherent shit and people ate it up.

Now youu fucking bitch - and you are a bitch for being something as lame as kergo's fill in - yall can admit that kergo is a tired bit and maybe, just maybe you should re-examine your devotion to such an obvious, unfunny, one-note troll. Or you can keep being a bitch. You can't win. You're a bitch. All that you can do is admit it or keep being a bitch.

I know that you must have simply overlooked referencing that the Karl quote about wanting to face Mavs in the playoffs come DIRECTLY from a one on one interview he had with ESPN 103.3's Ian Fitzsimmons.

he did reference it buddy. "Only because Oklahoma City is athletic like we are and they have two great players," he told ESPN radio.well?

That's damn near a textbook APA citing for Richie compared to his Iggy to the Mavs "source".

I guess I forgot about the tardline yesterday and a 2 segment JO session with Sarah Jaffee(sp?) wtf? Anyone else? The Twitterers were falling over themselves to make sure they got the unticket to record it. I guess I don't get it.

Local music gal doing well..didn't have much of a problem with it..bet it was still more riveting than the tardline. (I'm a homer though)..sometimes you get what's on Warsh's ipod, sometimes you get Sara Jaffee

Sarah Jaffe is greatness. I am not gay, but I love blues/jazz/crooner music, so my wife took me to Norah Jones for my b-day last year, Jaffe opened for her. She had a Tori Amos sound minus the suck of Amos. I loved that they had her on. And, only those 3 Tards interviewing her are the only ones that could've pulled it off versus any of the other radio stations, sports or not. It was cool to have her on, but just my opinion.

TheRealDirtyP1

Understood, but if you actually own a Sarah Jaffe cd, gay or not gay?

I have a Jaffe cd. Not gay (though I hear she is). It's really, really good.

I know you are joking but stock cars don't have mufflers. Thats why most people(if you don't have ear plugs or scanners) leave the track deaf for a couple of hours.

Richie while you're watching NASCAR, give a shoutout to fake kergo out there in the cheap seats. You'll know him when you see him, and the boy with him isn't his son so call the cops on his dumba$$.

Time to relax. Carrots, onions, celery, garlic, pepper, chicken broth, beer, flour, milk, cheese, and mustard. Nothing fancy, just a little soup. 20 minutes, and mix the beer in half way.

All the Sox haters need to remember it's a long season. Take it slow kids, because history is on the side of the Sox. The only good news for the Rangers is Selig doesn't rig baseball like Stern does baskketball. Sorry, but the ratings don't lie.

Now Richie might lie about the ratings, but the ratings themselves don't lie.

They throw that ball within 6 inches of those corners this weekend and I'm gonna spray that ball all over the yard. First half tear on a first place team. Deja Vu all over again.

I'm just ahead of TRDP1 (thanks trdp1 for without you, I'd be in last), and haven't got a win from my rotation yet...I feel a big weekend coming on.

First of all it's Merten. Mer-ten. Second, Richie's Shitts is a bit. No way he's in the upper tier at the end of the year.

I guess you want him to bash Christians again, or maybe bring up radio ratings?

Seem to me, Rooster, that Davy drew you offsides first. He jumped because you jumped.

Half the distance to the goal. First down, Davy.

Don't worry fruitcake, you didn't make me feel butt hurt.

Care to use any of your other old bits? Perhaps tell me to get off my dad's computer? Maybe make a joke about doing my mom?

Stars - It pains me to say this - but stick a fork in them; they're done.

Sox - Should consider mixing in a win if they want to be taken seriously.

New School - 3rd rate East coast blowhard + Dude no one's ever heard of = Fan is going on the cheap and not trying to compete in that spot.

Tiger - meh.

Tyron Smith - We're sure this guy is a #9 pick and not a #15 pick Jerry will take at #9?

Elizabeth Haselbeck = Hot. I feel sorry for the dude that has to listen to her talk, but she's still hot.

$1 million - at 4% per year = $40k per year without touching your principle. It's doable. You won't be able to Chris Chris your way through Dallas, but there are plenty of families who survive on $40k per year.

DMN - I dig it and it's not overpriced for me yet. They provide a service I use and value, and they deserve to be compensated for it.

Superbowl - meh.

Nascar - meh.

TheRealDirtyP1
TheRealDirtyP1

4% is doable? Where? Please send that to me because 2.55 is the highest I've seen on a 5 year jumbo. If you want your money to be safe in a cd that is.

Jack Daddy

Rooster - you are right on the $40K. That is what you should expect. Now pay taxes on that. Around $8K.. That leaves you $32K. But just to round up, lets say that you have creative writeoffs and that leaves you $36K or $3K per month.

COBRA coverage? For a single guy? $1000K/month. That leaves $2K. Car payment, gas and insurance? $550, and that's driving a LPOS. That leaves $1450 per month. Crappy apartment and utilities (gas/electric)? $700 (and that is living in a dump -- realisticly you are at $1000). That leaves $750 for food, clothes, TV bill, phone bill, Internet bill.

Trust me, I've thought long and hard about this. $1MM is not doable even for a single guy. You need $3MM for a single guy and $6MM for a guy with mortgage, wife and kids.

Sorry Richie.

I think it'd be safe to assume you could net more than 4% interest on your $1 mil. 8-10% is probably more realistic unless your financial planner really sucks.

TheRealDirtyP1
TheRealDirtyP1

Really just depends on how they're going to invest it. You could definitely diversify, but if 25-50% of your investments tank(and shit with the way the world is going it's possible) you're lucky to break even. Investing in tech and emerging markets have done well for me the past 2 years, but that's going to dry up eventually. If you can find me a financial planner that can get me a 10% return after his fees, I need his info asap.
