Hump Day O/T: Vote ESPY, Vote Mahomes

 68 replies

We’re voting for Patrick Mahomes up in here!

Its the tipping point of the week Arrowhead Guys, halfway there to another glorious weekend. It looks like the voting has recently opened up for the ESPY Awards, so I suggest you all click the link and vote for one Patrick Mahomes.

Doesn’t that feel better? Yes, yes, I thought it might. Now that we have that handled let turn it over to the subject everyone is suddenly talking about weeks after Arrowhead Guys first discussed it: Chris Jones Contract situation. For that, we turn to RGR.

I can’t think of many Chiefs related things that I care less about than one of the players winning an ESPY.

Not trying to be a dick about it either. I know it interests some people, just not me.

Mahomes needs ALL THE AWARDZZZ!!!

Okay “needs” is probably too strong. “Deserves?” Yeah, better.

Boy, I’m tired. Might have to double up on my sleep med tonight, as even rqacking out early last night didn’t help much, as all that got me was waking up correspondingly earlier. On the upside, Mrs. BRAG is happy with the approximation of a dish from a local restaurant that I cobbled together, but that soaked up some energy, too. Getting into better shape’d likely help, but how to do that when you’re starting out tired is beyond me right now.

Can’t say that learning that Ryan’s POV regarding Jones is similar to mine. He comes at it from a different direction, but IMO that’s good, as a different approach tends to confirm mine, and the only thing that he didn’t really touch on is that if Jones holds out a year, he’ll be a year older without the practice and play that would help him get better. It also just now struck me that if he doesn’t get a new contract done before the season and plays on his current one, the argument that holding out from the OTAs for fear of injury loses a bit of credibility, as if he plays on this one and gets injured during the season, he’s not as likely to get a monster contract if it’s serious and could undermine any holdout leverage.

Doc gave me a steroid shot last week, and I have been using good ol cortisone lotion and colodial oatmeal baths. The oatmeal really really works, i just cant stop in the middle of a work day to soak in one for 30 minutes or so. But when i get home its like magic

Bittersweet day. My job is done as of Friday, and my last meeting with my boss was today. (I’ve mostly been working from home and meeting with my boss once or twice a week to go over any details and figure out a plan of action for that following week.)

On the flip side, he said he’d write me a letter of recommendation if I ever needed one and he seems keen on discussing obscure classic rock even further (if this was any day but Wednesday, I’d post an example of what I mean by “obscure classic rock” in this thread), so that’s a plus. Hard to find people my age (18-50) who will discuss classic rock, since most are only passively familiar with 80s thrash metal band covers of classic rock and don’t otherwise listen to it.

Also, I found out today that I did in fact get another short-term job… I start on Monday. It’s only until September, but it’s better than nothing.

Hit up your boss for that letter of rec right away, tell him you want it for your file, a lot easier to get it now than later. Glad to hear about the new work.

A frustrating day today. I don’t want to go into too much detail since I’m using my real name now, but basically my near term life goals are going to be delayed by ~3-6 months. I guess it’s not a huge deal, since for life goals a couple months isn’t much, but it’s still frustrating that I have to push them back for something completely out of my control.

Have you tried it the old fashioned way, using your own charm and good looks?

Unfortunately I only have the good looks. I’m relying on the car to replace the charm.
