Seahawks Fans Resort to Craigslist in Search of Flip Cup Opponents

Craigslist

Four thirsty “die-hard” tailgating hawks fans have reached out via craigslist in search of worthy opponents “to play a best of 7 world series style game of flip cup at about 6am Saturday morning.”

Here’s a preview of their posting below:

There will be 4 of us and we need groups of 4. Bonus points if you are female simply because they asked one of the single guys in the group to post this and that’s what you fucking do on Craigslist. You ask for females.

Woah, easy with the generalizations there, bro. I know plenty of people who use Craigslist for more than just scouring the casual encounters section. (WARNING: NFSW LINK).

Moreover, they are pretty cocky [no pun intended if you clicked the link above]:

We’re good at flip cup. In fact, better than you plus 3 of your friends. We are Richard Sherman, you are fucking Skip Bayless. We are Russell Wilson, you are Colin Kaepernick. We are the WWII Allies and you are the fucking Axis. We are the East Compton Clovers, you are the Rancho Carne Toros.

We are better. Period.

Frankly, I am considering challenging  them myself — I mean, what kind of guys use Craigslist to seek out flip cup enthusiasts? Did they already exhaust of all their options on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Linkedin? Yeah… on second thought, count me out.

Post your lame mediocre comments below.

Philly’s EDM Nightlife Part 1

Hacienda DJ Booth

After recently reading a review from CBS on the top EDM nightclub options in Philadelphia I felt it was necessary to add some clarification to the botchery that was the article
CBS Philly EDM Nightlife Certainly, Philly’s electronic nightlife scene is booming, but not all the places catering to such a taste were created equal.

Lit Ultrabar
460 N. 2nd St.
Philadelphia, PA 19123
(215) 600-3601
www.litultrabar.club

Lit was named one of the best bars in Philly in the aforementioned article. Sorry CBS, but the Trestle Inn will always and forever be the greatest bar in Philly. Don’t know why? Get on the dance floor and groove to some funky deep and you’ll get the idea. Anyway, back to Lit. Yes this place may get some decent electronic acts, most recently DJ Michael Myers who throws down at Soundgarden often (although, if his Facebook is any clue to his thoughts he thinks Rumor is the epitome of Philadelphia nightlife. Bummer dude). In any case, Lit’s horrendous sound system that produces shaky bass and unbalanced high range squeals is sure to give your eardrums auditory cancer.

Go if: Your favorite electronic act happens to be passing through it’s doors.

Stay away if: You value your ear’s auditory functionality.

 

Rumor
1500 Sansom St.
Philadelphia, PA 19102
(215) 988-0777
www.rumorphilly.com

Rumor does indeed have two dance floors and a VIP area, along with a bar tucked away in an old bank vault. It also has $8 bottles of water and cover charges that range from twenty to forty five dollars. Unless your trust fund has room to spare over your ludicrous college expenses, you may want to party elsewhere. Furthermore, while Rumor occasionally plays host to big acts such as Kaskade and Tritonal, it more often than not is a spot for local DJ’s to do their thing. Rumor’s sound system is also quite good, but it’s lacking on space and occasionally leaves you with less than an inch to spare between yourself and the nearest Guido.

Go if: You want to have a fancy night doing Molly in the private bathrooms.

Stay away if: You want to rage in a T-Shirt.

 

SoundGarden Hall
520 N. Columbus Blvd.
Philadelphia, PA 19123
(847) 268-8331
www.soundgardenhall.com

SoundGarden Hall consistently receives some top names in the EDM landscape. Myon and Shane, Sander van Doorn, and Seven Lions have each made multiple stops at the venue in the past year. The 18+ shows are often flooded with Kandy wearing, serotonin-surplussed raver-animal hybrids but most of the time the crowed is respectful and generally positive. The true magic of SoundGarden comes alive on its newly introduced Hacienda nights. Hacienda provides a 21+ atmosphere that is both more intimate and in an area that recently received a serious sound system upgrade. Oh, and the shows go on until 4:00 A.M. which is a welcome addition to the cities few offerings in regard to late night, electronically enhanced, partying.

Go if: You want to get down and dirty to some deep house.

Stay away if: You would rather go to Rumor and get extra fancy.

Updated Knicks Trade: JR & Shumpert

New York Knicks Logo

Knicks Fans,

Looks like Phil Jackson has officially launched rebuilding mode through a 3 way trade with the Cavs & Thunder. The Cavs would get JR Smith & Iman Shumpert. The Thunder would get dynamic guard Dion Waiters.Whereas the Knicks get the Cavs’ Alex Kirk, Lou Amundson, as well as the Thunder’s Lance Thomas. In draft compensation they receive a 2019 second round pick.

This is an interesting trade for the Knicks because JR Smith was owed almost $7 million against the Knicks cap. Kirk has a contract running through next year at approximately $845,000. No matter who is included a future draft pick is also included could be helpful as the Knicks have had a successful draft history with choices of Nate Robinson, David Lee, as well as Trevor Ariza (a former 2nd round pick).

Beefeater’s Underdog Lock of the Weekend

Place To Bet:
Top Bet
Betting Card:
Detroit Lions Moneyline +250
Bet : Payout Ratio
1 : 2.50
This bet is a great bet. People forget that the Detroit Lions have been one of the most consistent teams all year. They had an injury to Calvin Johnson in the middle part of the year, but were still able to pull out key victories. This is can be greatly attributed to the play of their #1 against the rush defense. Additionally they finished with an 11-5 record after having two games stripped away from them from inconsistent kicker play prior to Matt Prater’s arrival. That puts the realistic value of the Lions at 13-3. Dallas has been hot as of late and will be playing at home. However Dallas has not been in the playoffs since 2009, and Tony Romo is desperate for a big fuck up game. Not to mention that the fact that Dez Bryant is liable to flip the fuck out at any point, but especially if he is not getting touches while Calvin Johnson is going off. Oh yah, not to mention the fact that Suh might stomp out Romo and cripple his back subsequently ending his career.

Beefeater Parlay: NFL Wildcard Weekend

Andrew Luck photo

This post is a blessing for all of you Finches out there trying to get your first Parlay card fix from our website. You are in store for a doozy of a Sunday if you follow these picks. However you’ll notice that I broke one of my golden Parlay Rules found in this article. I guess we will see if I am able to break my own rules like a hypocritical girlfriend, or if it crashes and burns in my face like an adolescent teen arriving home after being caught broken his parents’ rules.

Bet: Payout Ratio

1 : 13.619

Place To Bet: Top Bet

Parlay Card:

  1. Detroit +250
  2. Baltimore +145
  3. Colts -170

Detroit at home is my lock of the week. So you better damn know that Daddy is going to include them in his parlay rather than let any arbitrarily imposed rules from my first article aforementioned. When a gambler’s got a gut feeling all rules are out the window and all cards are on the table. Baltimore is a solid bet considering Le’Veon Bell is going to be out for the Steelers. He was the heart and soul of this offense with over 1,300 yards rushing, and 854 yards receiving. That is a lot of yardage to make up as well as added attention able to be given to stud receiver Antonio Brown. Finally, this playoff is the playoff of Andrew Luck. Cincinatti has never won a playoff game under Martin Lewis, so what makes you think that is going to change? Luck is going to have a great preseason with his favorite dynamic receiver TY Hilton returning. Do not forget to sign up and place your bets at our trusted partner:

 

Beefeater’s 5 Parlay Rules For Success

sports betting and gambling

Before reading remember that you can always find a home for your betting here, even if you’re in the United States: TopBet

  1. Respect The Parlay
    • Never include a bet which you have made an individual, solo bet on first into the parlay. There is nothing worse than your solo bet and parlay all going to shit because of one fuck up.
  2. Maximize Your Earnings
    • Always include at least one dog into the parlay in order to maximize your earnings.
  3. Be Realistic
    • Do not make serious parlay bets with more than 4 events. However if you’re a broke fuck and still surviving on your refund checks in college throw $1 on a 9 or 10 team parlay you have my permission.
  4. Be Patient
    • Do not rebet the parlay once it has been broken with a loss. This is for all you suckers that think your 4 team parlay is a lock and the first event you chose which lost was just a fluke, so you reenter a 3 team parlay. Bad News.
    • They always want to take your money twice. Once it’s gone, let it go, and start again the next day.
  5. Rome Was Not Built In A Day
    • Parlays are tough and you should enter them with the correct expectations. You will always lose more than you win, but the important part is to choose the correct bets to include and always follow the above rules to ensure you make money. Which is always the goal!
