So last night we had to suffer through an evening of no BleacherNation and while us BN junkies had to suffer through the shakes of an evening with no BN, I thought a list of things to do while dealing with the detox of no BN would be fun and rather pathetic as we all faced our BN addiction. So here are a few things to do when faced with no BN:

1-blast hansman on twitter- HAMBURGERS
2-consider what BN would look like if it merged with BleacherReport
3-punish cats by removing their pajamas
4-start up a trendy heroin habit
5-start a Marge Schott fan site
6-learn what smh means
7-watch the WBC
8-watch the replay of the Bradley v Provodnikov Boxing Match (seriously see this fight its amazing)
9-shudder, the horror... watch ESPN
10-Write a letter to Kevin Millar "Dear Mr. Millar, SHUT THE FUCK UP. Sincerely, A Goat"
11-Actual enjoy the NIT
12-Injury your quad and join the Cubs DL party

So what else did everyone do while they were having an itchy night?

somehow our talk on twitter went from BN being down to Fleaflicker being down after Sandy to 9/11 to my friend who collects 35% disability for having only one nut

I can barely function in my regular life when I know that BN is down. So, the things I manage to do when BN is down: (1) breath. The end.

Shouldn't that be 50%? I guess the other 15% went to taxes.

Posh, TWC would never join the military. He would have to cut his hair.

You're right, of course; but to clarify, my 15% disability is a state thing, not a military thing.

I think TWC meant from his dealer.

1-blast hansman on twitter- HAMBURGERS
2-consider what BN would look like if it merged with BleacherReport
3-punish cats by removing their pajamas
4-start up a trendy heroin habit
5-start a Marge Schott fan site

So what else did everyone do while they were having an itchy night?



1 - Lay off hamburgers...they're people too
2 - I think Bleacher Nation Reeeportin would be a fantastic site. Authors: Morken, Kyle, Chicago Cubs Fan, Diehard
5 - The market for Marge Schott fan sites is saturated at the moment. Most economists are seeing a bubble right now. Give it a year or two and you scoop up a dozen of them for 10 cents.
9 - Or tell Jon Heyman his tweet about bunting being awesome is the dumbest tweet ever
11 - Laugh at Kentucky

13 - Weekly hamburger delivery time.

Yeah this group is quite talented at taking any comment or thread and let the discussion land into some kind of cat, balls, hamburger direction. One day a community college can offer "Plinko Discourse" and we are all professors

I did a google search of "Plinko Discourse" and didn't find anything. I am surprised this hasn't been studied by someone.

"Pinko Discourse" sounds like the majority of my experience at a liberal arts college.

Many weeks ago a colleague had given me a film she wanted me to watch. Last night I finally had the time. It is called "Viva Cuba" (2007) by a Jaun Carlos Cremata Malberti.

It was surprisingly strong; writing, acting, editing, music.

It was a bit heavy-handed in the theme, but how is this really a flaw? It nearly fell apart when a magically-real spelunker-Che-look-alike shows up, but it is a Latin American film. It had no baseball in it, but it was not Bleacher Nation.

I recommend it (when there is no baseball).

The best thing about BN being down is that we don't have to rehash the Wrigley renovation story overandoverandoverandover a-fucking-gain on the front page.

I haaaaaaaaaaate the Wrigley renovation story. Hate it. Fucking loathe seeing posts about it.

I know Ace has to do it -- he wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't -- but that doesn't mean I hate the story any less.
