McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce is (alledgedly) coming back February 26th

Oh geez, Rick.

Die-hard fans of the Adult Swim show, Rick and Morty are salivating at the mouth as images leak online showing sauce cups and a memo describing an upcoming promotion for Szechuan Sauce.

While most fans are excited to get another taste of the very limitedly released sauce, others, this one guy in particular, have to be in a pit of regret…

Discontinued McDonald’s Sauce of Rick and Morty Fame Draws $15,000 Bid on eBay

… Discontinued no more. What a fucking asshole. Anyone who’s dumb enough to buy McNuggets sauce for 15k deserves to have their money taken away from them, don’t need people like that influencing the economy.  Paying a 3750% markup for a sauce is the millennial equivalent to sinking your savings into a bunker so you survive Y2K.

 

Juicing Your Bookie with Big Red Vol. 4

LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Shoutout to anyone who decided to ride with me Friday night, you’re welcome. The Money line stays red-hot, the parlay remains profitable, and the over/under is warming up, but I still can’t pick a spread correctly if I had a gun to my head.

Straight Pick (Money Line): (3-0-0)

-160 Vegas Golden Knights (39-15-4)  vs. Anaheim Ducks (29-20-11)

With a win tonight Vegas breaks the record for most home wins by an expansion team (Passing the ’79 Hartford Whalers) so it’s a big night in Sin City. Tonight is also the conclusion of their four-game series with the Ducks who they beat in the first three meetings.

Straight Pick (Spread): (0-3-0)

+2 Maryland (18-11,7-9) vs. Northwestern (15-13,6-9)

REALLY need a win for the spread column tonight, this one is a coin toss of a game so I decided to fade the public.

Over/Under: (1-2-0)

Over 140  Miami Hurricanes  @ Notre Dame

Using the model again since it won me some money Friday night.

Parlay: (2-1-0)

Under 6 Ottawa Senators @ Nashville Predators

Under 5½ LA Kings @ Chicago Blackhawks

Both unders are favored at -120 and based on my eye test (I have great vision) I’d say it’s justified.

 

Juicing Your Bookie with Big Red Vol. 3

Disappointing turn out last night, but the money line is staying hot as the Flames back up goaltender David Rittich was able to keep the Preds to 3 goals and secure the one-point victory. Huston upset Cincinnati despite not scoring for minutes at a time. Team USA Hockey pulled out the win but failed to cover against Slovakia sinking the parlay to a 1-1-0 record.

Straight Pick (Money Line): (2-0-0)

-140 Dallas Stars (33-20-4)  vs. St. Louis Blues (34-21-4)

With an opportunity to tie the third-place Blues at 72 points in the Central Division, expect Dallas to bring the noise and take advantage of being on home ice.

Straight Pick (Spread): (0-2-0)

-1½ Carolina Hurricanes (27-22-9) vs. NY Islanders (28-25-6)

The Isles have only won two out of seven games in the month of February and the Canes look to bounce back after dropping a game in New Jersey.

Over/Under: (0-2-0)

Over 144  Princeton @ Columbia

Took this pick from a model* I’ve been working on, and if it’s calculations are correct the score should be between 148 and 151.

* I threw some numbers in an excel spreadsheet and did simple math

Parlay: (1-1-0)

-145 Canisius Golden Griffins (18-9,12-2) @ Monmouth Hawks (9-17,5-9)

+100 Georgia Southern (16-10,7-6) vs. Georgia State (19-7,10-3)

Not really sure why these picks stood out to me, they just looked like winners. Canisius is a weird little school, they’re mediocre at best in most sports but the Griffins always tend to grab better’s interest.

 

SNHU Student almost failed by Profesor who refused to believe Australia was a Country

Huffington Post – 

Arnold said her assignment was to compare a social norm between the United States and another country. She chose Australia, and was “shocked” when she received a failing grade because her professor believed “Australia is a continent; not a country.”

 

In response to the grade, Arnold wrote her professor an email with references from the school’s library that stated that Australia was both a continent and a country.

The professor, however, wasn’t convinced. She replied that she would “gladly re-examine” her project, but stood firmly by her belief that Australia was not a countr

This story was laugh out loud funny, and I expect nothing less from a glorified diploma mill like SNHU. I’m sure U of Pheonix has a professor who thinks Alaska is part of Canada.

How about poor Ashley, tho. Everyone has dealt with hard-ass professors or bosses but having the professor tell you the equivalent of “the sky is purple” is an all-timer.
