Ummm, the Packers played? Well, the defense showed up, at least. Oh, and I showed up and actually played a fucking show for the first time in, well, way too fucking long...
GREEN BAY PACKERS WEEKLY RECAP:
Well, fuck. I thought the Lions game a couple weeks ago was bad... Our defense finally steps up their game (I know the Joe Flaccid and the Ravens' offense aren't the greatest test, but our D really did play well despite the "Injury Shadow Monster" claiming two more of our best defenders in Clay Matthews III and Kenny Clark) and Brett Hundley plays like, ugh, this is painful to say, but... Jay Cutler... Yep, let's take a look at their respective box scores from this week:
Brett Hundley - 21/36, 239yds, 0 TD's, 3 INT's, sacked 6 times, 43.6 passer rating
Jay Cutler - 6/12, 83yds, 1 TD, 3 INT's, sacked 0 times, 60.8 passer rating
Jay did leave with a concussion (seems like he started with one) so he didn't have time to rack up those additional yards in garbage time like usual, otherwise the numbers would've been closer. But, man, those lines fucking suck. I'm not sure who did worse. Jay Cutler threw three interceptions in less attempts but also threw a TD. Brett Hundley, well, he was just awful. I don't think playing the Steelers next week help him either, but at least people haven't watched Brett Hundley do this for over 10 years and still think "maybe this is the year he turns it around..." So, Brett Hundley has that going for him, which is nice...
THIS WEEK IN MUSIC:
There's only one thing happening this week in music (hey, that's the name of this segment!) and that is Julien Baker's "Turn Out The Lights." Seriously, just, what the fuck... This is an absolutely amazingly sad and awesome record start to finish. I had heard a lot of hoopla about her first record and gave it a few listens. I was not impressed but also not unimpressed. It was, fine. But Jesus, this album... I'd try and write words about it but I'm too fucking tired (it's been a long week), and I'd rather listen to this record (one more time before I pass out) than write about it. So, I will. I listened to this album on repeat from Spokane to Portland (almost 6 hours) and then from Portland to Lebanon and back (about 1 1/2 hours each way). Just watch this and buy this goddamn record:
One last thing, thanks again to all those who came out to Conversion Brewing on Saturday and to those who watched via Periscope. It was my first show in over a year and a half and it felt brilliant. I didn't realize how much I missed it. I can't wait to start touring again and doing that on a regular basis. Lebanon, you were a great host and I can't wait to see you again.
