ryan fitzpatrick’s beard belongs on TV,
BUM SHITS ON ME!
It was entertaining but definitely not good for The League Standards. So. . . Why did Rux become stupid?
My guess is some sort of weird placebo effect. The test says he’s dumb, so he’s got to be dumb.
another solid episode, just needed more Rafi.
Everything needs more Rafi.
If that’s the worst episode of the season, it will be a DAMN solid season…
I thought the appearance by Fitzpatrick was great, didn’t seem too forced either.
It wasn’t great but there were worse way I could of spent my time doing.
The problem with this episode is that it had Pete being in full smug douche bag mode.
It’s weird because having Ruxin be stupid threw off the group dynamic completely. I loved Taco getting tired of Ruxin’s mistakes, but otherwise the rest of the group kinda went unchecked. I guess kudos to the writers for trying to change things a bit, but… never again
Agreed. When Pete wins, the show loses. Granted, Ruxin is a smug d-bag too, but he tends to get his comeuppance. Pete always seems to skate by.
Now I want some sort of hybrid between Larry Fitzgerald and Ryan Fitzpatrick. With brains only rivaled by that of his “ups”?
Or he can throw awful passes to himself!
“I sentence you to stupidity, for life.”
Couldn’t disagree more with Dustin. That was a solid episode and dumb Ruxin was thoroughly enjoyable. Also, this show has made “collusion” a hilarious word.
And guys, part of why Raffi is great is because he’s a “recurring” character that’s used sparingly. If it was every episode it wouldn’t be as fun.
Exactly. We already had two episodes in a row with Rafi. Hopefully we don’t see him again until the end of the season.
Agree with your assessment of Rafi, disagree on the show. Last night was week, but still better than anything on CBS
Thought it was a good episode too and as a Bills fan, I was pleased to see Fitz not be such a bad actor.
I definitely agree with Rafi. His over-the-top lines wouldn’t work if we became desensitized to them.
I just didn’t like the episode at all though. I think it has to do with the initial “dumb guy” humor of Ruxin doing and saying stupid things. It’s like the lame cliche of a person seeing their reflection in a mirror and thinking it’s a different person. It’s just lazy.
I would like an ice sculpture just of my nude, lower half. Hanging to the right.
So Shitzpatrick, born and Arizona and college in Mass does in-season charity work in Chicago now? A team he doesn’t even play this year. That makes sense.
Maybe it was for a charity he chairs that is all about smart making the childrens?
Maybe that charity offered him a lot of money to come speak?
That’s the longest time I’ve seen Ryan Fitzpatrick on my screen without one of the New England secondary picking him off.
Zing! People still say zing right?
I believe they now say Bazinga
She’s putting people at risk! and breakfasts
“We have other children to worry about. And food!”
2. Coco Beware?
Maybe we should have a friend double check before we hit “post”
Dustin’s a bit of a fritatta, but we still love him.
Looks like Ruxin isn’t the only one that blew the Wonderlic.
maybe he smoked a bowl and did some shots before writing the captions?
or maybe dustin = mo claiborne
Bring back Matt? (it’s been a while, seemed appropriate)
I’m just glad that I now have the term “Intellerection” to whip out.
Uh…. speaking of intelligence-defying… “road a snow mobile”?
There is a reason Dustin uses a picture of Andy Dwyer for his avatar. Because he’s such an amalgam.
I hate to pile on, but “vineger”?
Spell checking is hard!
Dustin has been quite silent in this discussion. Maybe he’s going back and changing all the errors in the screengrabs.
There’s so many, I can only assume at this point he did it on porpoise as a meta commantery on the plod of the show.
5:30 a.m. recaps, before coffee. My spell check wasn’t even up yet. My apologies. Guh.
Unless its, “5:30 a.m. recaps, [drinking Irish] coffee …”, that’s a bullshit excuse.
Creepy morgue guy (Formerly creepy The Dark Knight Joker accomplice) was pretty good in being a creep.
I’m sure he has that on his resume. “Skills and Talents: I’m creepy as hell.”
“I am a dude version of Margaret McPoyle”
The thing is, bombing the Wunderlick test wouldn’t utwardly rattle a douchebag like Ruxin. He’d generally have 3 responses to when the guys busted his chops:
1) Dan MArino scored an All Time low on it
2) I’m smart enough to bag a hot wife
3) Some reference to how much more money he makes than the rest of them
It would have worked better if he kept up his asshole exterior to the others, but was breaking down privately until it exploded somewhere inappropriate. Maybe have him go into over drive about being the smartest guy in the room all the time.
Also, I’m glad they are using Raffi sparingly, but they should up the Taco factor when he’s not around.
1) Probably why he never won a ring.
(1)(A) That, or all the coke. Probably latter.
2) Where HAS Mrs. Ruxin been this season?
2) Topless with Denzel in Flight.
Google image search time.
3) I thought Dr. Andre is the bread winner of the group… I am also not sure what Pete does.
Definitely agree that because Ruxin is an asshole, he wouldn’t have been phased by doing so poorly on the Wonderlic. And I like your idea that he was slowly breaking down. It would’ve been perfect to have him finally fall apart as he tried to converse with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Would’ve been epic.
“2) Topless with Denzel in Flight.”
Why didn’t all previews and reviews start with this “very integral to the story” bit of information?
@Miguel Sanchez – did you miss Mrs. Ruxin making out with her brother in the last episode?
Culturally biased. Rode a snowmobile. Someone already caught Koko B. Ware. Who wrote this review, Ruxin?
The League is the NY Giants of comedies.
I don’t get this metaphor, but since I love both I approve.
So its Director is a curmudgeonly asshole and its lead actor is a mouth breather?
When the bad shows are still enjoyable, you know it’s a great show.
I don’t think I really enjoyed it, but when a show has a bad episode and you go, “eh shitty episodes happen, whatever,” you know it’s a great show
The first screenshot is Koko B. Ware, “The Birdman” [www.onlineworldofwrestling.com]
I feel so much shame that I knew that too.
Never be ashamed of who you are. If someone doesn’t know a wrestler from the 80′s that’s on THEM, you hear me?
Dustin is a platypus of epic proportions for missing that one. I just googled “Coco Beware” and the first result is Koko B. Ware’s wiki. I can excuse ignorance, but I will not abide lazy blog posts.
“Coco Beware, yeah, that totally makes sense for a thing to say!”
Maybe he was thrown because the trivia question was about penguins and Koko was all about parrots?
Always more Rafi and maybe some Dirty Randy as the Bobbum Man
Needs more Raffi, less Fitzpatrick. Also bring back Kristen Catler.
Who the hell is Kristen Catler?
He meant Kristen Cutler.
She’s married to Jay Catler, so it’s definitely Kristen Catler. Because he is a cat.
Agreed. Catler and tit whiskey.
He can’t be a cat, he went to Vanderbilt and all cats go to Purdue.
Catler Don’t Care.
Would pay money for pictures of Kristen Cavaleri smoking.
Yes, pictures of Kristen Cuntler smoking pole. Please, internets.
