Late night open thread

It's the Saturday night Scoreboard Show!

Ohio State 34
Penn St. 24 2OT
Dear Penn St., keep the shit off your field

Nebraska 42
Rutgers 24
Rutgers will take home some lovely corncentric parting gifts

Michigan State 35
Michigan 11
A Michigan linebacker brought some kind of spear or stake from Ann Arbor with him and just before the National Anthem ran to the 35 yard line and staked it into an 'S' painted on the field. Michigan State then won the toss and elected to kick the Bejeesus out of Michigan for the next ten years













LSU 10
Mississippi 7
One Mississippi down in the playoff race

Toledo 42
Massachusetts 35
You knew this score would be explosive when you have Minutemen and Rockets involved

Bucknell 22
Georgetown 17
Who says Bison are extinct east of the Mississippi?

Alabama A&M 37
Alabama St. 36
It's the Bulldogs who reign supreme in the state of Alabama small and directional school bowl

TCU 82
Texas Tech 27
A score like this reminds Johnny of the first time he played his godson in Playstation college football and was destroyed

Wabash 70
Oberlin 10
Putting the Bash in Wabash

The Jersey City Desk Game of the Week®
North Carolina 28
Virginia 27
Well, you can't accuse North Carolina of studying game film, or studying much of anything else for that matter but they still schooled (Oh Johnny quit) Virginia.

Rutgers football gameday!

In what a lot of people call the friendliest road trip one can make in college football, the Scarlet Knights are in Lincoln Nebraska today for a morning matchup with the Cornhuskers. Being in central time the game kicks off at 11am in Lincoln and while they have an awesome gameday atmosphere we're not sure how much BBQ one can get around by say 8:30 am to get it smoked and cooked just so before you head into the stadium for an 11am kickoff. See? Rutgers is already flexing their ratings muscle.

Johnny thinks it's going to be a long afternoon for the Knights unless they can force turnovers and lately nobody has been better at trying to give games away via the turnover than Nebraska. The overview is pretty simple, force a couple fumbles, get a pick or two as the Huskers aren't a strong passing team or Ameer Abdullah is gonna get a chance to ram the ball at the RU defense for four quarters. We know Rutgers will play for the entire game, a great program trait so if they can keep it within a score deep into the third quarter well that's how upsets are born.

So finish your frosted flakes New Jersey, still 45 minutes til kickoff.

Fearless Forecast:
Nebraska 31
Rutgers 20

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with THE RUNAWAYS!

Lita Ford, Sandy West, Jackie Fox, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. When you get that kind of talent in a room you're gonna get some pretty good music out of it. However fleeting their time together they made a real good noise. The Runaways batting leadoff tonight and making their Music Series debut with 'Cherry Bomb'.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with ELMORE JAMES!

Goddamn right Elmore James.

You got those 'Madison Blues' people? Not sure if you have the Madison Blues or the Ebola? Let Elmore James tell you all the symptoms. The best part of this song is from 0:00 to 2:25.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with THE CARS!

Headphone songs. You know 'em. Pink Floyd made quite a few. The Moody Blues, The Beatles, ELO, there are some bands that know the value of slapping on a pair of good headphones for one of those special play with your head type songs. Songs that while they may sound good on the car radio or on your home system, they shine in headphones. We're wrapping up tonight's Music Series with a Top ten headphone song. Since you've already seen the band is The Cars the secret's out isn't it? Here's 'Moving in Stereo' for all us headphone fans.

Late night open thread

On this day in 1976 Chicago had their first #1 Billboard hit with "If You Leave Me Now." In honor of their great accomplishment here's The Clash from 1977 with 'Garageland '
You didn't think we were going to play that Chicago song did you?

If you shitwreck your umbrella in 40mph winds...

Don't just drop it wherever you stand. They have these newfangled things called trash cans all over Jersey City. There's one every other block.

Pigs...

Late night open thread

Two guys in a rowboat just flew by Johnny's office window high atop the SpacePunk Building downtown.

You don't want that.

Dear developers

On days like this when walking a dire wolf it sure would be nice if Jersey City could be known as "the City of Awnings."

Just sayin'.
