(Confidential to ECB: I think I’m coming down with a bad case of Madden Flu food poisoning. I won’t be in tomorrow.)

I challenge you.

You didn't go to Walmart, did you?

Good morning Hipsters. Bad news: Tattoos and ear plugs are out of style. Your tattoos are fading and your skin is sagging just a little bit more than it was yesterday. And that one on your neck will really look like shit in a few years. All faded and sagging. And those ear plugs. Man, that is like so 2003. How are you going to make those holes smaller? What the fuck! You'll always have Pabst Blue Ribbon the King of Hipster beers! And Dan Savage--America's favorite cocksucker to guide you. Hmmmmm-He doesn't have visible tattoos and ear plugs and he has a nicer house than you do and more money in the bank too. Why is that? Whoops! If you don't know who the mark is at the poker table-it's you.

Darn, where did I leave my give a shit list?

#4: Eventually the entire hip population of urban Seattle will look like the ragged remains of a once popular circus carnival.

What's with the incredibly lame trolling lately? Seriously, ranting about how the kids these days make differing style choices to the generations that precede them? Wow, shocking.

Good luck with that, uh, food poisoning, Jonah.

The trolling is probably coming from someone who's never actually hung out on Capitol Hill and can therefore indulge in stupid abstractions about what Seattle "hipsters" are really like.

I like to make slight fun of the Arms Made Of Legs crowd every now and then, but Whoops! sounds like a real (not parody) sad troll. Truly, truly sad.

Go get drunk at the Comet sometime, little troll, talk to your barstoolmates for a change, then we'll talk about the merits of Seattle's current crop of hipsters.

Sounds like the Dan Savage War Stalker to me.

@8, it's no different than the constant eastside bashing this blog's writers commenters engage in. People look down on and mock those who live differently than they do. Human nature.

Enjoy the game Jonah. Be sure to stand up every once in a while to keep the blood flowing to the lower extremities.

Nobody is spamming threads with long off-topic rants against eastsiders.

Somebody must have had a talk with Michael Phelps...he was much less freaking out/nearly maniacal this time versus his first gold at Bejing.

If he gets a sweep he'll receive a $1million bonus from Nike. GO OLYMPICS!

#12 off topic, my bad wrong thread, hoohaw

Posted by Non | August 12, 2008 9:11 AM

Why have we been talking about Favre when he's on the Madden cover? He's not playing more than 4 games this year with that on his shoulders.

Posted by left coast | August 12, 2008 9:12 AM

When those eastsiders get done eating all their corn and popping zits, they'll go into the barn to play on their Amiga hand-me-down. The closest they'll get to Madden is pretending the Pong ball is a football! HAHA BURNINATION!

Yeah, I got nothing.

Jonah, I've heard it sometimes takes a few days to get over what you have, don't forget to hydrate regularly.

@10 What's even worse is the Eastside Hipsters! (Said tongue in cheek from inside my mansion on the Eastside where I drive an SUV and desecrate plastic bags while pretending to be tragically hip.)

@11 It may not be off topic spamming, but Eastside bashing does happen pretty regularly around here. Even I was guilty of it last week and I LIVE on the Eastside.

1. his first gold medal he was very calm for. The 2nd gold medal -- the 4x100 relay where they won an impossible victory coming from a .8s deficit in the last 50m against the 100m world record holder -- is the one where he "freaked out". You would have too.
2. The 1m comes from Speedo, not Nike.

Posted by Confused much? | August 12, 2008 9:20 AM

Yeah - hydrate regularly.

Actually beer is the best for that because it has calories and you won't get week and shaky from sitting in one spot too long.

Posted by subwlf | August 12, 2008 9:26 AM

It's all the same, #17. But thanks.

Posted by Non | August 12, 2008 9:43 AM

How the fuck did this turn into a "hipsters and olympics" thread?

Get with the program, people.

PS. the game is pretty neat. It's a lot smoother than the last two seasons, although it's also a lot fucking harder. Or maybe it just takes some getting used to.

How? Still no long-promised account registration on the Slog. And nobody to delete the junk posts after Amy Kate died.
Posted by elenchos | August 12, 2008 10:21 AM

Did they have enough time to reprogram it so you're not sure if Favre will retire or not until right before kickoff?

Posted by PA Native | August 12, 2008 10:21 AM

Now I have to decide whether or not to get it for the 360 or the Wii.

Posted by elswinger | August 12, 2008 11:09 AM

Watch your mouth, Jonah. You have a forum that encourages commenting and unrestriction.

Your attitude is disengenous when used beyond your imaginary new power since being hired.

Posted by Non | August 12, 2008 11:39 AM

What the shit? The Slog can't even have a good comment thread about video games.

Maybe you guys should just give up talking about games. Some of us gamers cringe everytime they comes up on the Slog.
