McNuggets Headbutt? I’m Lovin’ It

FOX News – A McDonald’s employee in the U.K. was reportedly suspended for head-butting a customer after an argument broke out over Chicken McNuggets.

The customer allegedly became upset after being told he couldn’t order nuggets because the menu had already changed over to breakfast, according to the Echo.

The incident occured at around 4:50 a.m.

Warning: NSFW Language

 

I get both sides here. I’ve never worked in the fast food industry, so I can’t say I know how the antler-wearing fry cook was feeling, but I can understand rage building up inside of you to the point that you headbutt a drunk guy who has worn out his welcome.

I also understand being really drunk and wanting one specific type of food. If you want McNuggets you don’t care about McDonald’s arbitrary schedule for menu items. Who are they to decide that you’re not allowed to eat a 20 piece nugget before passing out to some Netflix and waking up wondering why you couldn’t convince yourself to finish the 32oz Gatorade sitting on the coffee table? That’s why I’m glad I live in America. Last time I checked, we were allowed to be fat all hours of the night. Time to catch up with the times, England.

My Local Taco Bell Could Stand to Learn a Thing or Two From This Place

 

Ever get tired of having to wait 10 minutes for your $15 worth of Taco Bell on a Tuesday night? Yeah, me too.

This McDonald’s in whatever city they’re in has their shit together. Not only do they get him his order in record time, they don’t even make him stop or tap the brakes. I’ll take a longer route home from work if I know I won’t have to stop or wait at any lights, so this is the perfect scenario for me. If McDonald’s can do it, why can’t Taco Bell? It’s not like McDonald’s has the Harvard (on the Hocking) of fast food training programs.

Maybe someday my local Taco Bell will be able accommodate my request, but until then, I’d settle for just shaving a few minutes off my wait time. I’ll give Taco Bell credit though, I’d like to think they’re smart enough to not throw the drinks into the car. Then again, probably not. I better buy some waterproof seat covers.

What Will Roger Goodell Buy With All of the Bengals-Steelers Fine Money?

 

Cincinnati.com – The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers racked up $63,816 in lost dollars on Friday due to an infraction by Bengals safety George Iloka and the one-game suspension of Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

In the grand scheme of things and with the way the game went and the sports world reacted, this doesn’t seem like much money. You’d think game checks would be getting yanked left and right with the narrative we’ve heard all week long. Was this an ugly game for all parties involved? Yeah. Was this a black eye on the league that is “trying” to clean the game up? Probably. Does Roger Goodell have a massive boner trying to decide what he’s gonna buy with this $64k? Absofuckinglutely he does.

Before you get all pissy – yes, I know he doesn’t actually get to pocket the money. Or does he? I’m too lazy to look it up right now, so lets assume he does. What kind of car should he buy? Maybe he could buy a few friends since he probably doesn’t have any? Does he have kids? That would require sex and King Goodell has about as much sex appeal as Darren Rovell after a night of trying $6 gourmet sandwiches at minor league ballparks just so he can get some cheap retweets. So maybe no kids. Again, I don’t feel like looking it up. So instead of researching anything about Roger Goodell’s life, I decided to come up with a list of a few suggestions for Ol’ Rog.  Continue reading

Reddit User Strikes Secret Santa Gold

Reddit has always confused and scared me. Some people might say I’m even intimidated by Reddit. Not everyone, but some people. Now it looks like there’s a whole other layer of Reddit for me to be scared of. Not only do these people form communities and seem to know each other just like a couple of Regular Joes standing around the water cooler talking about their dickhead boss named Peter, but now they are sending each other hundreds of dollars in gifts for Secret Santa.

Reddit user /u/pakmann struck gold this holiday season when he received an Xbox One S for Christmas from /u/Cheewa1980.  See, even the way you address/tag/whateverthefuckitscalled other users is weird. /u/? Whatever, I’ll play your stupid game.

Let’s all take a second and tip our caps to /u/Cheewa1980 before I get to the meat and potatoes about what’s bothering me. You did it bud, you got a great gift. I’m sure /u/pakmann is very thankful and you made his holiday season that much better. But…. Continue reading

Former Blue Jacket Fan Favorite Derek Dorsett Forced Into Early Retirement

Well, this really sucks. As a Blue Jackets fan, I loved watching Derek Dorsett. There were some nights that he was the only aspect of the lowly Blue Jackets game worth watching. Whitty and I suffered through some rough losing seasons as season ticket holders (not to brag) but we always sat on the edge of our seats when Dorsett was on the ice. He might not have been the biggest guy on the ice (he was often the smallest) but he played like a man possessed and wouldn’t back down from any player in the NHL, no matter the size.  Continue reading

I Watched Rudy Today and I Didn’t Cry

Ok, that’s a lie. I cried. It’s kind of impossible not to when you sit down and think about it. Unless you’re a robot or have never competed in athletics and don’t know the hard work that goes into having the slightest bit of success. Sure, you may have gotten a promotion a few years before me because of hard work, but that doesn’t compare to the daily grind of trying to be successful in a violent sport, nerd. Continue reading

Best College GameDay Sign – Wisconsin | Madison, WI, 11/18/17

The long awaited return of the Milliron Sports College GameDay Sign blog is here. It’s been a while, but the stars aligned and I was able to get some quality time in with the blog machine on this gloomy Saturday morning.

The GameDay crew was in Madison, Wisconsin for this week’s showdown between the Michigan Wolverines and Wisconsin Badgers. I have no dog in the fight, but I love cold weather Big Ten football, so this is must see TV in the Mac household. As expected, the opposing coach, Jim Harbaugh took a beating from the fans with their signs. If you can weed through all the copycats out there trying to get money sent to their Venmo accounts, there is usually some pretty good content in the crowd. That is, unless you’re in NYC Time Square for some weird reason.   Continue reading

The BBWAA Is Officially Uninvited to My Birthday Party

The Baseball Writers’ Association of America should be ashamed of themselves. They robbed Joseph Daniel Votto of his second National League Most Valuable Player Award and gave it to some jabroni that hit .281 and can’t decide if he wants to go by Mike or Giancarlo. You know who rakes and doesn’t have an identity crisis over what his name should be? Joey Votto.  Continue reading

Marvin Lewis Finally Takes a Stand Against “Problem Child” John Ross [Sarcasm Font]

Cincinnati.com – Lewis embraced the role of Grinch in the presser as he went deeper into Ross’ progress and the rookie not running the full play on Sunday because he didn’t think the ball would come to him in that coverage.

“The thing I told him and it was great because Andy was with him in the hall on Tuesday,” Lewis said. “For Andy, against that coverage to throw him that football, he should understand how the quarterback feels about him. That he expects him to be where he needs to be. He let his teammates down. He let me down. He let Andy down.”

Really? This is the guy? John Ross, who has seemingly been a good soldier all season is the guy that Marvin is going to choose to call out publicly and shame for his effort? You have guys like Pacman spitting on cops, Vontaze racking up personal fouls and getting tossed for making contact with an official (which in hindsight was horseshit, but Tez deserves anything he gets at his point), and even A.J. Green getting run from the game for executing a rear naked choke and displaying his ground and pound technique. But no.. let’s jump all over John Ross’ shit for quitting on a route, which we’ve seen every Bengals receiver do time after time during the Lewis-era.

I’m ashamed to say that up until this season, I despised the “Fire Marvin” rhetoric on talk radio, Twitter, and on Monday morning at work. This season has changed me. I’ve become so sick of Marvin Lewis and everything he’s doing to this franchise. Was he the leader we needed at one point? Absolutely. I could even see past the early playoff exits in most cases because it always seemed like something terrible would happen outside of Marvin’s control. Injuries, terrible officiating, and just about anything else that could happen to a team seemed to happen to the Bengals right as the regular season was wrapping up.

Two years ago when the Bengals melted down after they appeared to have a gigantic playoff victory locked up against the much hated Pittsburgh Steelers, the game ended in only a way a Marvin Lewis-led Bengals team would allow. Personal fouls and fighting. Granted, Joey Porter and his stupid fucking face had a lot to do with that too, but if Marvin didn’t let stupid shit slide 24/7/365, it would’ve never been a problem.

You’d think at some point, one of the other instances of stupid decisions on or off the field would draw the ire of Marvin Lewis.. but nope, it was a half-assed route by a rookie in a season that has already gone into the shitter because of Marvin’s ineptitude. I can’t wait for this season to be over so we can be done with Marvin. Mike Brown doesn’t have the balls to fire him during the season, and probably not even after the season. Our only hope is Marvin doesn’t want to come back. Here’s to hoping we are Marvin-less in 2018. If not, it’s just another 15 years of sucking for Cincinnati. Nothing we aren’t used to.

How Did I Just Now Discover How Badass Shark Tank Is?

I’m not sure if it’s a rite of passage into being old and washed up or I completely missed the boat, but I found myself watching reruns of Shark Tank on CNBC the other night and I LOVED IT. How have I not been watching this shit the whole time? It has literally everything you could want in a reality show. Underdogs to root for, assholes to see crash and burn while you get some perverse satisfaction from seeing a smug prick get told off by Mark Cuban. Did you know that dude is worth 3.3 BILLION with a B dollars? That’s not just fuck-you-money. That’s fuck-you-and-all-of-your-ancestors-money. How this dude doesn’t just pull the trigger and drop $500k on every idea he sees is beyond me. I’d be a terrible Shark because I’d be throwing money around like Pacman Jones in a Vegas strip club.   Continue reading
