Tuesday Night O/T: With Week 1 in the Books, What’s Your Overreaction?

 168 replies

Arrowhead Guys talk about anything.

By the time week 10 rolls around fans have gotten used to the fact that one game often doesn’t mean all that much, but every offseason we forget that lesson and overreact to the Week 1 games. With that in mind what’s you’re irrational week 1 conclusion?

For me, I’m declaring the Steelers the 2nd best team in the AFC. I know it was just the Giants, but their defense is no joke, and Roethlisberger looked competent (at least compared to what the Steelers were trotting out last year).

Listening to Van Halen as we speak – started with Women and Children First and now my you tube has drifted to some featuring Sammy.

Hagars era was more quality, Roth had the party.

And sorry I missed a chunk of the evening, because KISS is absolutely the best live show of all time.

Studio wise they were really good, but if somebody catches them live they definitely move them up some notches in their all time list.

I appreciate Hagar (who had the best non-KISS live show I ever went to before he joined Van Halen) but early Dave was something special. I agree – the KISS live show is something to behold.

I would place Dark Side ahead of The Wall, but there’s taste. That said, that leaves a lot of albums open for discussion for ranking all the albums that are better than Kiss’ best – but that’s me not being a fan or hater of the group – though according to his own claims Gene Simmons is the most successful serial statutory rapist in American history. Not that I think he should go to jail for it or anything, just sayin’.

I may be one of the few but I think The Wall is clearly superior to Dark Side of the Moon. I put in the KISS qualifier so I would not be accused of favoritism, Gene did most of that before underage girls were considered to be illegal.

Scary story that I have shared with some before – Was a first year teacher (age 22) and at my first parent teacher conference. One of my students (seventh grade) came with what I assumed was his parent. I taught in an area where the girls got pregnant at a very young age. This “parent” was cute as hell so I did a little flirting with her and told her she could contact me anytime to check up on her son. She let me know that it was her brother, not her son and told me how busy she was with her classes. I was not deterred – “What college?” I asked. She responded by saying, “Oh, I am not in college. I go to (name deleted) high school”. I panicked for the rest of the week. Thank God nothing came of this incident.

That would depend, though enforcement of such laws could be spotty. But my point wasn’t so much to cast shade at Gene as it was grousing about this ridiculous faux-moral presentist puritanism we’re awash in. I didn’t read all the complaints against Cosby, but the ones I saw didn’t accuse him of drugging them insensible and then having sex with them à la some roofie scheme, or even getting the girl drunk enough to say ‘yes’. Instead, it was an invitation to get high with him, and the hint that sex might be involved was broad and clear.

So we have laws that result in kids sexting each other can be convicted of child pornography. *Sigh SMFH*

For the record, I am not advocating that people have sex with under-aged girls but, back in the sixties and seventies, the bars were filled with these under-aged girls. Drinking age was 18 and nobody got carded.

Over reaction # 3 – The New Orleans Saints will be the NFC representative in the Super Bowl as the NFC West teams beat each other into oblivion, Green Bay falls when Rodgers arm starts to fail towards the end of the season, and the NFC East representative (well, that does not matter).

The big question – Does Bruce Arians have the balls to bench Tom Brady as he continues to fade away as the season progresses?

KISS doesnt get their due for being the gamechangers they were. These days even Willie Nelson has pyro in a show. These guys did it first and they did it best. The stage for the Alive II tour is still the coolest stage ever on the road. Musically, not as much, but you cant underestimate the number of kids that picked up guitars in the late 70s because of these guys

Van Halen 1 was just a gamechanging record for guitar players, and not just the tapping and that stuff, for me it was the tone. That super gainy midrangy tone, but with tons of top end sizzle. Still the greatest hard rock guitar tone ever recorded. Eddie kept dicking around with his gear, so it never sounded the same from one record to the next, and after the 4th or 5th record he switched to Soldano from Marshall and then started pimping his own stuff
