Happy Memorial Day Weekend from DBB!

| May 25th, 2018

I’m not a photographer. But I like to take pictures. That probably describes 99% of the population right now. I thought I’d share a few images from a few years back – a visit to Normandy I took with my lady friend (pictured below). Enjoy the weekend. Stay safe. Don’t drink and drive. Content returns Tuesday, barring any breaking news.

  • SC Dave

    And wishes for a great weekend to you, Jeff!

  • Major Obvious

    Thanks for the pictures, Jeff.

    A post like this is more meaningful and evokes more appreciation for country and service personnel than a 9 year-old “tradition” of players standing on the field during the national anthem before games.

  • Kylie Fitts was on Bears extra last night.

    He brought some big talk with him. He is working on all the signals and working on dropping out to zone and reading screens. He fully expects to be the starter across from Floyd and pick up all of Floyd’s tight end assignments allowing Floyd to spend more time as the 4th rusher. He reminded everyone he is first round talent who just had a run of bad luck imjury wise but now says he is a bad mamma jamma all set to rock somebodies world

    Just a clarification, Memorial Day is about the fallen and Veteran’s Day is about all servicemen and servicewomen. Not that Jeff screwed it up but some people don’t get the distinction.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Do they observe a Memorial Day in the Great White North?

      Canada was in both world wars before the US.

      • CanadaBear

        Not exactly. It’s not quite as defined as in the US. They have Victoria Day in May and Canada Day July 1st that both refer to the fallen. Remembrance Day is basically the same as Veterans Day. I kinda look at it as Victoria Day is close to Memorial Day on the calendar and somewhat like it. Canada is a lot like the 4th of July in the US.

    …the angle and formation of the rows of crosses at Normandy is mesmerizing.

  • Bears-4-Ever

    Have a great weekend, in this great country, made great by those who paid the ultimate price to keep it free. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=Omd9_FJnerY

  • BenderMcLugh

    Thanks for the pics, Jeff, and hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

    Just checked this out, never seen Helfrich talk and I like him. This coaching staff seems to be right on track:

  • AlbertInTucson

    We thank the fallen for the ultimate sacrifice.

  • This movie seems perfect for the gang here

  • AlbertInTucson

    Le’Veon Bell wants $17M per.

    • Johnnywad

      Me too. I’d say we have about equal chances.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        You are going to be a MILLIONAIRE!!!!!

      • AlbertInTucson

        Difference we would each settle for half that in cash.

    • willbest

      Le’Veon Bell sounds like he wants to bounce around the league on a series of $10mil per year rental deals for the next 3 years.

      • AlbertInTucson

        His argument that he’s both a special runner AND receiver is pretty valid, but $17M. per.

        I didn’t read what he wants guaranteed.

  • Irish Sweetness

    No tank? There was a tank up on the grass line when I was there … thirty years ago?…. is it gone?
    That’s the only thing I remember about the beach.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Is this thing on? Anyone sober out there? Fack.

    Lando Calrissian fucks machines. That’s all I got.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Out here and sober.

    • CanadaBear

      Definitely quiet around here. Not much going on this time of year for the Beloved.

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      Sober. Day 18.

      But I had an awesome dream a few nights ago where I was smoking a cigar. So good I felt guilty about it…in the dream. Woke up without nicotine cravings though.

      • CanadaBear

        Many, many years ago I had a dream about Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) and as I was just about ready to mount up, I remembered I was married and it woke me up. Catholic guilt, don’t go to sleep without it!!!!!

        • Irish Sweetness

          Lynda Carter is marriage material. Not just MM, but you’d tie the knot at 18 with her and never look back.
          (sigh)

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            isn’t she like 70 years old?

          • CanadaBear

            Hey Now!

          • leftcoastdave

            Damn, does that mean we have a chance?

          • CanadaBear

            Showed off her boobs in a terrible movie before she found religion. Spectacular!

            https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074228/

        • AlbertInTucson

          She definitely rocked as Wonder Woman.

        • leftcoastdave

          Assumption High will do that to you.

    • CanadaBear

      Fuck one machine and you’re labelled for life!

      • Irish Sweetness

        And notice I didn’t add NTTAWWT. There’s a lot wrong with Lando. And he’s getting his own fkn movie!

      • AlbertInTucson

        Wolowitz on BIG BANG THEORY.

    • beninnorcal

      I like Cam but I also like what Pace has done at wr this offseason, quite an overhaul. I guess time will tell.

      • CanadaBear

        I was surprised when Pace didn’t re-sign him but it’s not like he’s Megatron in his prime.

    • leftcoastdave

      I love Cam, but I think the change will be good for both he and da Bears. I want to see him kick butt and get a multi-bazillion dollar next contract.

      That does not mean that not putting a higher tag on him was not the right decision.

      I think it best to have a whole new receiver group.

      And White staying for his last season remains a whole new receiver group, practically speaking.

    Man, that’s quite a privacy policy.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      I did not read it. I assume it basically says you have no privacy, any information we give up can and will be sold to the highest bidder, even if that bidder is a drunken Romanian. Also any comment made on any board is under the strict intellectual property of Disqus.

      Most of you guys don’t have to worry too much about the last part since you don’t contribute anything that even remotely looks as if it is intellectual.

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        new privacy policies everywhere to comply with Euro law

        https://www.buzzfeed.com/nicolenguyen/what-is-gdpr?utm_term=.eegdzVDGX9#.pnGZEjxRJe
        “Companies with European users are sending emails with updated privacy policies, in order to comply with GDPR.”

        GDPR must stand for God Damn Pissdrunk Romanians.

        • leftcoastdave

          Its the EU bureaucrats who want to take over every aspect of all lives. Smart of Brittain to Brexit. Unaccountable bureaucrats who all know best how people should live their own lives, and take in some muslims while you are at it, damn it, we need more cheap labor for the rich to live off of.

          • willbest

            I am good with the EU tilting at this windmill. Data analysis by Google/FB is getting hyper invasive. I try to avoid them, but everybody else is just 2 steps behind.

            I don’t have a good solution other than to become a mountain man

  • Irish Sweetness

    Man, it’s like America got invaded by North Koreans…. where are you guys?

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      It was supposed to be an invasion, but when they got here the soldiers all sought refugee status or immigrated illegally. Shitty midwestern exurbian towns will finally have a decent grocery store to go to.

      I could use some Bibimbap. It’s been like 20 years.

    • CanadaBear

      I’m around but things sure are quiet.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      So many flags out to kneel in front of. Just can’t keep up.

  • CanadaBear
    • leftcoastdave

      “The whole team has talked about it,” McKinnon said. “We had a thing
      with the Navy SEALs. They were asking us, ‘What’s the goal?’ It was
      equally collaborated on: ‘Win the Super Bowl.'”

      Wow. “[E]qually collaborated on.” Heavy stuff.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Memorial Day, 2018.

    Fly the Flag, please, boys and girls.

    • willbest

      One of the 3 times a year I put it out, and the only one I play taps for when I take it down.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Veterans Day and Flag day the other 2?

        • willbest

          Veterans day and Independence day.

          • AlbertInTucson

            July 4th.

            Well, “DUH”, Albert.

            I do June 14, as well.

  • BuddhaJoe

    Happy HOT Memorial Day! I’m pretty sure we set a May heat record here. Still got on the grill and finally impressed my wife with some burgers.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Where you at with all the heat?

      Pretty balmy, for Tucson, mid 90s today.

      Really nice evening in the pool.

      Lookin’ at 100 tomorrow, though.

      • Johnnywad

        Buddha is up here in SW Michigan with me. Mid 90s today. Pretty damn hot for Michigan in May. 94 again tomorrow.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Ohh,.

          Not the fabled, Arizona DRY mid 90s heat.

          Muggy, damp, uncomfortable, Michigan, mid 90s.

          Relative humidity here this time of year is single digits.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Very entertaining Stanley Cup Final game 1 on NBC as we speak.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Brandon is a Seahawk. Happy trails, bro.
