Thursday Night OT: Willie Gay Jr. Goes To IR & ESPN’s Floor & Ceiling for the Chiefs.

 278 replies

Join Arrowhead Guys Open Thread for the evening, combined with the news that Willie Gay J.R. is starting the season on IR and that Adam Teicher is indeed still Adam Teicher.

Recently Field Yates broke the news that Willie Gay Jr. will be placed on IR with the Kansas City Chiefs. This means that for the first three games of the season, Willie Gay Jr. will be unavailable to play due to his turf toe injury suffered in the preseason. Arrowhead Guys, I wish there was a ’90s expression to show our displeasure about this situation, but I got nothing. . .




[Except for Adam’s Teicher’s thoughts on the Chiefs floor]



Adam Teicher’s Chiefs Ceiling & Floor:

Today is another one of those days Captain Picard:

Willie Gay Jr. To IR:

Combo Thread?

Rather than having a Breaking News Post and an Open Thread for the evening, AG decided to combine them. So please utilize this as the evenings Open Thread. Additionally. . .

With the Willie Gay Jr. situation, please keep in mind that it’s a turf toe injury and that Willie should only miss about three games. Additionally, I think/believe Chiefs rookie LB Nick Bolton will get some valuable experience from getting thrown into the fire early next to Anthony Hitchens against the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Chargers (the Chiefs first three opponents). With or without Willie Gay Jr. and/or Adam Teicher’s positivity the Chiefs season is on its way.

Sometimes my wife makes me wonder about her upbringing.

We were discussing some home construction thing on TV and I said it was built like a brick shithouse.

Apparently she has never heard that term before, so she asked why would you want to shit in a brick room.

I really never thought I would have to explain that saying to someone older than me.

I am envious for those of you out there that had or have good relationships with your dad or mom. I loved my dad but he was the most stubborn, obstinate you know what on the planet and my mom was in and out of my life until she passed. I was the only one of my siblings to speak at my dad’s funeral – the best that I could come up with was that he thought he was doing the right thing with everything he did. It is what it is and do not need any sympathetic words – Just treasure the good memories you have and aim for more of them if you have a chance.

My other sister – the family pet who never did anything wrong. Took me years to not blame her for all the happened when we were young kids.

I am very aware of how blessed I am in that regard. I have a great relationship with my Dad and stepmother (they married in 1988) even though I never lived with them.

And I have a great relationship with my step-dad (married my mom in 1986) now that I am an adult.

My mother is a different bird, so it is hard to have a good relationship with her. She is a hypochondriac and basically only leaves the house for funerals.

I have come to actively dislike my parents, though they’re still alive. I’ve been told repeatedly that I’ll regret not trying to make peace with them before they die, but I already know that the only peace I could make would be to accept their treatment of me as “good”. I can’t change them, and why would I miss their cold, condescending, critical views of me?

Remember, to them, I’m incredibly lazy. Their “love” for me? Purely conditional, and it’s impossible for me to get above the minimum of that. They started checking out of real life in August of 1973, and they’ve now achieved their dream. The only family member they have left who actually wants to have a close relationship with them is my younger son, and they’ve held him at arm’s length since he asked my father to stop going through his trash. This apparently offended him to no end. His only actual (to him, the science teacher and lifelong Democrat) grandson. And Dad pushed him away, wouldn’t talk to him.

Thus, the envy for those who have strong bonds. From everything that I have heard, you are a great father so perhaps that is the greatest lesson that they taught you. You might dislike them but make sure that you always love them.

09/02/2021 10:14 pm

Nope, they’ve abused my love for them too many times. I don’t have enough left to love people who only pretend to love me, and want the authority and benefits of that from me, as well. I refuse to give them that, because I’m done with that subtle, crippling abuse. Everything looked normal, outwardly, but the things that didn’t leave marks physically cut too deep.

For a nickle, I’d switch to actively hating them. There is no way to relate how their treatment of a psychologically badly damaged child made everything far worse, but I still feel the pain of it.

EAFOX

09/02/2021 10:21 pm

You are a grown man and the decision is yours to make but I hope that you do not go down the road to hate. I hated my mom and both my brother and sister – my mom for leaving whenever the whim took her and my brother and sister for both sexually abusing me when I was young. The hatred was killing me inside and being able to forgive allowed me to move on. I did not do that for them – it was for me.

BleedingRedAndGold
Reply to  EAFOX
09/02/2021 11:23 pm

I fully understand and appreciate the value of that reasoning, but that’s not the only way. I fully agree that the problem with harboring hatred is that it never stops eating at you. Hatred and anger ate away a lot of me, when I was young, so I made choices, one being reducing my grudge list to just one person, Fred Hart. That’s safe enough, because I’m not going to see him again.

But with my parents, I understand them far too well to be forgiving. I don’t hate them, but I have completely dropped that rope. The only thing I care about them anymore is how they treat my son, and typically of them, it’s poorly. Same goes for their hired hands, since they don’t feel the need to pay the going rate on the books with the gov’t and all. Cash transactions, and they pay is less than normal minus taxes. Miserly, both with affection and money, and likely mercy and understanding, as well.

If they change, then forgiveness can come into the picture, but I won’t forgive those who don’t forgive even their own family. I just dropped that rope.

My older sister and I have only talked in many years when our mother passed
Would I like it to be different, don’t know, she has been well out there from what I feel is even normal human life….

My youngest talked about this to me about my anger anymore about homeless beggars.
He said maybe they do not see the world like “normal” people do….

It makes me sad, I don’t want to be mad at my kin, but I would like to be able to trust them in my house if I was not there.

“Socialism is wonderful! Best economic-political thing ever invented! Just look, it’s a combination of two radically different things, so that has to be good!”, or whatever words to similar effect. Tell that to this guy, who grew up under the crushing tyranny of the Castro regime – and fuck you Michael Moore, as well. The USA is a paradise, compared to his native Cuba, and the main thing that saddens him about coming here is that there’s no way for him to share any of it with the family he left behind.

Mixing politics and economics is never good, just consider the lobbyists and imagining being folded into the government. Remember, under socialist policy, it’s 1 for you, 19 for me. Literally, at times.

The strike back in 73 or 74 or somewhere around there – my grandfather had been the head of the union until he retired back in 70 – my dad fired the man that got the strike started and my uncle pushed a picket sign in my dads face – causing them not to talk for ten years – The strike resulted in 24 hour police protection for the family and a funny story about gunshots in our backyard.

Not sure if there is a moral to this story – when I was young, my dad use to harp on me about drinking and driving. He went to a party – drove into a field, down a railroad track, and onto a runway. Car was smashed in everywhere. He lost his keys in one of the folds created by the crashes – we found them the next day. He stopped giving me so much shit about drinking and driving – I had not even started to drive yet.

Talking with some teachers today about 9/11 – The first said that she was in high school when the attacks happened. The second said she was in middle school and the third said she was in elementary school. I told them that I was contemplating retiring that year – at least it would have been early retirement.

It’s a few miles north-ish from Arrowhead, and when I went there, its location was really tucked away. Had a hell of a time figuring out how to get from the major road down to the local road leading to it, the first time, but no regrets on that. It’s not really a butcher shop, per se, it’s a charcuterie, so it’s more a matter of processed meats, like bacon and sausage, but other cuts are sold, as well, such as chops and steaks.

Everything’s done on-site, and pork chicken and beef are not the only meats they deal in. The staff’s very knowledgeable, and can steer you to what suits your tastes. When we had the money for season tix, I decided that just once, I wanted to go all-out on quality steaks, since you can’t buy pri9me beef in supermarkets. They set me up with a pair of grass-fed, lightly corn-finished ribeyes that came in at 40oz each, for which I paid about a buck an ounce. Worth every penny.

Golden Ox – used to be a damn good place to get a steak and there were some other restaurants near there in the old days – near where they put up Kemper Arena. My great great grandfather used to live down the street there in the bottoms.

There was a steakhouse in the 90’s on 20th street or somewhere between Grand and Main

you walked in and the grills were fired up and the smell of steak was awesome….

Gone now

My son took me and my wife up to that restaurant that revolved up on the 30th floor or something of a hotel

was an awesome rib steak?

I am slow but I guess that we are talking about two different places here. The Hereford House passed the Golden Ox as the premier steakhouse back in the day. The original place had a fire there quite a few years back.

yes two

The hotel was formerly topped by a revolving rooftop restaurant, Skies, which closed in 2011 along with the hotel’s Peppercorn Duck Club when the hotel became a part of Starwood. The former Skies restaurant reopened as the Sheraton Club Lounge, a private club.

Pictures can be a blessing and a curse – Somedays, it helps to think about all of the good times and, sometimes, you have to keep yourself busy so you do not think about it too much. Wish I could help but I know words are not always the answer. I am sure that your dad did everything he could to make your life a good one. Treasure the memories when you can and know that he will always be with you in your heart.

The interesting thing about Patton is that while he felt he had those vague almost-memories, they were always military roles, and he felt he’d served up and down the ranks. From what I recall, he was essentially a nobody, in most of them.
