Religion, Griz Envy, the Double Down, a Triumphant Return and a New Sprout

CS Weekly Update: Issue #4

It’s Friday once again and this Friday is a special one as I went undercover to report on the infamous Friday Lunches in Missoula.  I heard through the grapevine of this super secret lunch that happens every Friday at undisclosed locations around Missoula.  I did some digging and found out the location of todays event and made an appearance.  Poor ol’ guy Grizo didn’t even realize it was me until he told me the same thing at least three times.  Was a great lunch though and I did hear rumors of next weeks location so if you want the inside scoop, just send me a PM.

Now for the weekly recap… It all starts with D1B once again self proclaiming himself as the religious guru of CS, which is all fine and dandy because I don’t believe anyone on here gives a #$%& about any of that stuff so carry on my friend.  I am starting to wonder if this new found religion is due to the non retirement threats that used to fill the void in your lonely Friday afternoons? This will be the shortest paragraph in CS Weekly Update History so congrats D1B for holding that title.

Screamin_Eagle174 also had a very self proclaimed week patting himself on the back for “blazing past” 2500 posts… but that did give him the first ever douche bag of the week award so congrats to you.  A fellow EWU fan had a major case of Griz Envy (see being a fan of a shitty team so you bash the fans of the good team to try and make yourself feel better) and posted a pic from 2005 (the last time EWU beat the Griz).

So that concludes the users that are trying to put themselves in the national spotlight.  Oh No… I just realized I robbed D1B of his shortest paragraph award… sorry man, maybe next time.  SE and your fellow EWU fan claimed the SP of the week award in addition to your  DB of the week award.  Congrats to you (both).

The KFC Double Down sandwich (or is it?) was a HUGE hit this week, causing controversy among the bread lovers and health nuts around the globe. andy7171 is intrigued but doesn’t feel as if he could stop eating once he started. GATW is not willing to betray bread therefore will not eat a sammy without it, and many other users talking about wanting one for each meal and some even talking about having multiples in one meal.  We also got into how andy7171′s wife pretty much owns his “soul” and will not allow grape jelly in the house.  I recommend this read, heck, go to KFC and grab one, nestle up to your favorite computer or iPad and write a review on this topic as you eat the thing cause as it has been reported that the grease will not transfer to your typing device, which is very handy IMO.

We had a triumphant return of a member that has been MIA for quite some time, even reports of no longer being alive.  He has risen once again, hacking his way around the firewall so hopefully he can stay longer this time as his contributions were missed greatly… I think… were they?  What the hell did he even contribute?  Oh well, welcome back lizrdgizrd.  Oh that’s right, a good avatar.  Now Rob Iola doesn’t have to dig into the archives to stare at it as it will most likely be on more recent and frequent threads.

We also welcome a new member to the site that is making quite an impression so far (even though her secret identity was revealed on the first reply of her very first post.  We welcome you and hope to have many great conversations in the future.  We also like the idea of having more women on the forums, so thanks for joining.  Rumor has it, you have some very good information and insight on the Griz Football program which is a rarity these days.  I hope you decide to share your inside information and everything for us non connected people.

Some site updates occurred this week (no LSAs are not working yet) and (yes I am still working on them, waiting for some assistance from a web developer). Facebook has been further integrated into the site giving you the ability to “like” any blog post (such as this one) or any forum topic.  The like feature then shows how many users “liked” the thread giving them an idea of how popular their topic may have been, similar to the karma idea but a little different.  This will then let other users know what posts are shared/liked the most and bring more attention to them.  So, if you are reading something you are a fan of, please click the like button and share your laughter and knowledge.  CS has also gone mobile! On any pda type mobile device (iPhone, Blackberry, Droid) you can download a Mobile App and view the forums using the mobile technology which is VERY slick. I highly encourage anyone to give it a try.

The other OTW awards from last week are recapped here in a GREAT write up done by Ursus (takes notes Grizo).  Other news, I will be gone from the forums starting the evening of Tuesday May 4th for 8 days as I will be in Beautiful Kauai, Hawaii soaking up the sun!  This also means no weekly update next week! I know I am missing something… hmmmm… what was it…. Oh yeah… Poor ol’ guy Grizo still isn’t funny (you can’t bribe me even if you did make a montage screen saver of all my avatar pics).

This has been your CS Weekly Update, Enjoy!

Good job, I guess, Chris. If my skin weren't as thick as one of Ursus' FB's, I might've been offended.

Again, nice job, Chris! FWIW, I'd think about sellin' your P90X program...not sure it's workin' for you...

In that same vein Grizo I would think you could stop your daily dose of Namenda®...and pork swords.

P90X is not a piglet type diet Grizo. It's not meant to plump me up

I get tired of having to say the same ol' thing Chris but great f'n job again. This is always a highlight at the end of the week. Don't forget to meet up with my man "Crowbar" over in Hawaii and pick up that package. Just to be safe I'd slip in a travel partners carry on or something until you get back on the ground here in Missoula though. I'm not a facebooker but I'll hit the like button on this one anyway.

The mobile app is great Chris. I had to go right to the website though, because I couldn't find it on blackberry app world. Great app though.
