I uttered the following phrase recently: “Ma’am I’m going to need an absurd amount of Polynesian sauce with that.” Right after, I found myself thinking, “What an interesting thing to say.” I’d bet the 11 dollars in my wallet that no one has ever said that.
Jay Culter had some interesting things to say this week as well: “I hate my lineman. I hate my team. I hate the press. I hate you. I’m the best QB there is, get out of my face. And I hate you.” Admittedly I’m paraphrasing a bit, but that was the gist of it. He clearly saw no reverse fantasy football consolation prize in his 4 interceptions and 7 sacks.
Then I got to thinking about the many comments I get on Suckleague. You are no doubt thinking “What comments?” and quite correctly so. However, just because you don’t see any doesn’t mean we don’t get any. Every once in a while I go the comments section of the blog and sift through the posted comments, straining to find any written by actual human beings. Those are rare. Very common though are spam comments generated by bots that automatically search for blogs and post all manner of randomly generated remarks. These are typically accompanied by a link to some site selling cheap impotency drugs, knockoff handbags, or “highly discounted” (pirated) software. I thought I’d share some of them with you our reader(s) so you can have a glimpse of what it’s like to manage a blog:
(link to discounted impotency drug site removed) “This post is actually a nice one it assists new web visitors, who are wishing for blogging.”
Really, “wishing for blogging”? The assertion that anything on this site has ever assisted anyone is also nonsense.
(link to knockoff Coach purse site removed) “I look forward to reading more of your articles and posts in the future, so I’ve bookmarked your blog. When I see good quality content, I like to share it with others. So I’ve created a backlink to your site. Thank you!…”
Well, thanks, and you are right on about the quality content, but this is still clearly fake.
Sometimes they don’t even an attempt to sound real:
(hosting reseller link removed) “The decision for Bernard Asnault together with LVMH is involving surmountable significance for a brand containing once a year earnings which has reached over 30 billion kilos.”
I can’t agree or disagree with that because I don’t know what the hell it means. Who gets paid in kilos, drug lords?
And finally gems like:
You’d think with all the words in the English language that contain a 6 this would have gotten by me.
To week 2. The rosters for tomorrow appear to be set. It’s a repeat of Wheeler vs. Tanenbaum at quarterback, and the defensive slots are loaded (quite empty) with Arizona and Carolina. It is as they say, on. Or as one of our commenters might say:
“It’s really a nice and useful piece of matchup this week. I am satisfied that you shared. Please stay us up to date like this.”
I guess I’ll start commenting on my own posts like the adversary does.
