The Daily Grind

Since Jake's whereabouts seem to be everywhere these day -  Gulf Coast? New York? Texas? California? Europe? (Maybe) Nepal? (Not a chance)  - the fella needs a map to keep it all straight (ahem)

While there are no kale spot maps out yet - there is a coffee map of NYC that could help Jake remember where he is when they are trying to tweet, pap and print him being somewhere in the city.

 The map with the best places for coffee in Gotham comes with all the subway lines - so they can get the straight story - oops story straight.

Oh don't worry Jake there's an app for it.  Just don't confuse it with Grinder or you will give your team a stroke.

Now if there was an app to tell you where the fauxs go  so you could make sure you don't have to deal with them.  Wait - you might already have that.

Olympics for ALL Moment:

Norway has a perfect response to Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law. XXL All Sports United, a Norwegian sporting apparel retailer, released an ad that shows its support for LGBT people at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

The new commercial titled “Airport Love” was created with the message in mind that sports is for everyone.

Today is historic. Jason Collins will become the first openly Gay male active player in the history of USA professional sports. He will be playing pro basketball for the Brooklyn Nets. Congrats Jason. So sweet. So sweet :-)

Great news Tom.

I wonder if the NBA felt pressure from the recent news from Michael Sam and the NFL to make sure they haven't forgotten that one of their own came out too and they did right by him.

Having the NBA and NFL both having active out players sends a message to other professional sports, players and especially the fans and the public that this is a new era in sports.

I'm baaaaaaaack!!!! lol

Hey, you know I'm looking at that first picture right now and that thing looks all kinds of faked up, if you ask me.

Look at his left leg in that thing. His left hip and entire leg look like they were sliced too much. In fact, his left leg looks so thin, it looks like an artificial limb.

I'm just sayin'.

Not to fast with the NFL, they havn't signed Michael Sam "yet".
I hope they do!

But I do think it's about the NBA not being left behind the NFL.

Interesting though that Collins contract is for short term I've heard. I need to find out more about this signing.

Another thing that's interesting, does it seem like most of the players who have come out in the "Major" sports are of color. Active, meaning (Collins) now, hopefully active, (Sam), or came out recently after retiring, (Davis, Tuaolo). Heard of many rumors but can't find or remember any other major sports figures.

Now Glenn Burke was another major sport player MLB who let everyone know of his sexuality, although the Dodgers and A's suppressed it and didn't know what to do with him. Then the A's got rid of him. Just a thought!

Many rumors about white major sports athletes, but not one of them have come out yet.
Now I do believe Troy Aikman and Aaron Rodgers is hiding something.

^^ Glenn Burke was Black and gay also

So much support for gay rights have come from the media and politicians which seems to be mostly "white", but can you tell me there are no white gay athletes in the 3 "Major" (NFL, NBA, MLB) sports.

Just Saying!!!!

LOLLLL!! And guess what?

So I'm on the phone with M&M and she had a feeling she knew what year that picture was from and after doing a quick search, immediately found the date that picture was published and guess when that picture was posted on the internet?

The article containing the picture was dated Jan 7 2011 so the picture was likely from maybe the 6th. This time period was around what?

The birthday of a GyllyNichol.

Jake is seen on IHJ as arriving and walking out of a very dark and deserted looking LAX alone and bag-less on January 7th.

BWAHAAHHH!! So was Jake even up to his old fake LAX arrivals even back in 2011??? LOL!

prairiegirl said...

Four pictures on IHJ, that's all there are. The exit door area is alllll dark and deserted.

Beam me up, Scotty, I've already been here before. LOLLLLL!!

So Jake was probably never in NYC. They planted his image in that subway picture is my thinking. That picture of him is all kinds of weird if you enlarge it.

prairiegirl said...

**scratches head**

So how many other times has Jake been faking his arrival at LAX????

Boy, have we been some suckerssss!!

lol. Well, they're going to have to up their game on this airport terminal arrival business now though, right?

This 'I wear my sunglasses at night' at darkened, deserted LAX just isn't really going to fly so easily anymore.

Another plane ride to North Carolina. 7 more episodes to go. One of which I will direct. First time. Very excited.
8 Jan 2011

And, like clockwork, the Big Guy lets everyone know that he's on his way to NC to start filming OTH on January 8. I guess after spending the holidays thru January 7 with Jakie and the family, it was time to get back to work. No one can say that Austin is not a generous man.

Jake being "seen" in NY was just about as believable as Swifty losing her virginity to a gay man.

Now, we get stories planted of Jake beginning to film in countries he is nowhere near. Arriving at airports where he is not seen. And, on dates which do not coincide with his actual schedule.

You really do need two Outlook calendars for Jake and Austin. You need one for real time events and then you need one for JakeWorld time.
