As another year comes to a close, The Thread takes a moment to reflect on celebrity deaths of 2013. Also, the results of our 2012 RIPCast celebrity death predictions.
ERIC: How’s everyone? It’s half a ghost town at work today. Eerie walking past the T-station on the way into my building and not seeing anyone there. Got a parking spot on the first floor of the parking garage, which never happens. One of my co-workers actually lives in Watertown. He’s WFH, under the covers in the basement.
MARK: I’m fine.
SCOTT: I’m good as long as the SOB gives up, gets killed, or arrested sometime soon and the Red Sox game doesn’t get postponed.
MARK: Really Scott? I mean really???? How can two geniuses such as ourselves be thinking the same thing. Mind goggling!
ML: People can Google minds now?
SCOTT: ML, you can.
ERIC: I’m just hoping Boston Comic Con will still go on tomorrow!
MARK: What the hell Suff?!
SCOTT: I agree Mark. Eric, don’t be so selfish.
ERIC: Scott, I’m thinking of you as well. You have time to make that AND go eat rice noodles.
SCOTT: Rice noodles? Because my wife is Asian?! Racist!
ERIC: I know. I’m a terrible person. Either that or I remembered that having to go eat pho was your lame excuse on Monday for not being able to go to Comic Con.
SCOTT: Eric, there was no such excuse. I was meeting up for dinner in the evening which does not overlap with Comic Con.
MARK: Really Eric? You are worried about Comic Con being cancelled compared to a mad man being apprehended. Why don’t you add to it and promote yourself by making a public statement that you will be at Comic Con. Moron…
ERIC: Maybe I will! Maybe I just will! Go Red Sox, Mark!
MARK: The Red Sox will show more comfort to the people as a whole than people dressed up in costumes and scaring more people in the area where mayhem was seen.
ERIC: I will be more comforted by someone dressed up as Wonder Woman.
SCOTT: Why do you want to see a man dressed as Wonder Woman? That’s rather gayish.
MARK: And I am sure he will treat you very nicely for a price.
ERIC: You and Scott shouldn’t project your own personal fantasies on to me.
MARK: Coming from the one that has a lightsaber armory.
ERIC: You’re the guys who want to see a man in a WW costume.
SCOTT: Eric, you brought up Wonder Woman, not us. You are projecting and backtracking. I wouldn’t choose Wonder Woman. She’s a beast of an Amazon. She might even have a penis. Plus, I’ve never seen her wash her hands on the invisible jet.
ERIC: Don’t be afraid of tall girls just because you are a tiny man. I brought up a WW costume. *You* assumed it would be a dude in the costume. Your mind took it there, because that’s what you secretly want to see.
SCOTT: Mark and I took it there because you love the cock.
MARK: Are you saying you are afraid of girls. Perhaps you are more comfortable around guys? IT’s ok. There is nothing wrong with that. I would rather Princess Lea in the captured bikini and chained. Now, that is a woman!
ERIC: She might be there too….
MARK: I doubt it. That scene was 1983. I believe Carrie Fisher is old and in rehab at this point.
SCOTT: I’d hope to see Power Girl. You need to have special powers to support a rack like that.
MARK: Eric, you and Shawn should dress up like The Tick and his sidekick the moth, Arthur.
SCOTT: LOL. That would be EPIC! SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
The 2013 MLB Season has just begun and it has already been interesting. Random injuries and brawls have taken out great players. A shitty 2012 Red Sox team has changed into a team with promise. But the big questions still remain: Who will make the playoffs? Is the Play-in game a good thing? Does Eric still know nothing about sports? And a listener poll asking “What is your favorite baseball movie?”
The Thread brings in its Wrestling experts for a special podcast. Rasslin’ is discussed.
The Thread discuss trends, fantasy, and our top picks for the 2012 MLB Season.
Something Fantasy Football related. Scott got lazy.
