#RizzRecap: Roll the Dice, It’s Your Legs. Slang Terms In All 50 States.
Traffic stop goes from bad to worse for Eustis man
via DailyCommercial: A simple traffic stop quickly spiraled out of control early Sunday morning for a Eustis man who decided he wasn’t going to jail quietly.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Hunter C. Padgett, 31, was stopped at 3:34 a.m. on State Road 44 for reportedly going 71 mph in a 55 mph zone while driving in the median in a pickup truck. The tag was expired and there was a broken taillight.
Troopers say Padgett stopped in the middle of an intersection, but when he partially rolled down his window, the trooper said he could smell alcohol, noted the driver was glassy-eyed and lethargic, and said his speech was slurred.
Padgett said he had just come back from having sex with a woman and that he only had two beers. He reportedly cursed when another trooper asked the same questions and said, “None of your business,” then sped off.
Troopers said he didn’t get far before he crashed into a tree and was handcuffed following a brief foot chase.
Padgett reportedly said his back and chest hurt, so troopers called for an ambulance. He was abusive to the rescue workers, too, and had to be handcuffed to the gurney. He was taken to an area hospital, where he was cleared by a doctor but then exposed himself….
The Most Unique Slang Term in All 50 States
via PlayNJ: If you’re ever on vacation in Hawaii and someone calls you “shark bait,” you might assume it’s some vague threat about leaving you in the ocean to DIE. But don’t worry, they really just insulting your complexion . . .
Someone put together a list of the most unique slang terms from all 50 states. In Hawaii, “shark bait” is a term locals use for tourists who are so pale, they’ll attract sharks if they get in the water.
Here are some more weird terms from the list you might not know . . .
“Roofer” In Arkansas, it’s a synonym for idiot or moron. (Wow, it must really suck to be an ACTUAL roofer there.)
“Gaper” In Colorado, it’s a derogatory term for a bad skier.
“No-See-Ums” In Florida, “no-see-ums” are gnats, or other small bugs that are hard to see.
“Chitlans” If someone from Georgia says you have “lovely chitlans,” DON’T punch them in the mouth. They mean you have lovely CHILDREN. (Although “chitlins” in the South could also refer to a dish made of fried pig intestines.)
“LSD” In Illinois, if someone says they’re “driving on LSD,” they USUALLY mean a road in Chicago called Lake Shore Drive.
“Hot brown” In Kentucky, it’s a type of open-faced sandwich.
“It’s brick” In Massachusetts, if something is “brick,” it means it’s very cold.
“Pigeon” In Nevada, it’s a gambler who keeps throwing more money at a bad bet.
“J’eet?” It’s what someone in Oklahoma sounds like when they say “did you eat?”
“Snoopy” In Pennsylvania, it means you’re a picky eater.
“Meat and three” In Tennessee, it’s a meal. As in meat and three side dishes.
“Greenie” In Wyoming, it means someone from Colorado, because their license plates are green.
Not all the terms on the list are that obscure though. Here are a few more you WILL probably know, because we say them other places too . . .
Waiting a “hot minute” in Alabama . . . saying something you like is the “bomb” in California . . . going to a bar and getting “loaded” in Kansas . . . “fixin'” to do something in Mississippi . . . and “biffing it” when you slip and fall down in Utah

The St. Louis Blues have put out their season schedule for the 2018-2019 and we’ll be able to get our feel of hockey as the season gets kicked off, too. 11 of the first 15 games are going to be played at home with the first game against Winnipeg on Thursday, October 4th.
The New York Islanders have themselves a new head coach…and he’s bring the Stanley Cup with him…well..at least a Stanley Cup Victory. Barry Trotz has agreed to become the head coach of the Islanders just 2 weeks after leading the Capitals to the Stanley Cup win. His deal – which hasn’t been OFFICIALLY announced – would put him in the top 5 of highest paid current coaches.
Last night was the NBA draft. Deandre Ayton went number one overall to the Phoenix Suns. He was followed by Marvin Bagley the III at number two. Remember, some people thought that Michael Porter Jr could have gone #2. But he didn’t. And other said he would probably fall to somewhere around the top 5. But…he didn’t. And the rest of the analyst said that he would be drafted in the top 10, possibly to Cleveland at number 7….but he wasn’t. Michael Porter Jr ended up getting drafted by the Denver Nuggets 14th overall.
A nice little heartwarming story early in the NBA Draft came when the Philadelphia 76ers picked Villanova’s Mikal Bridges with the 10th overall pick. Not only has Bridges spent his entire life around Philly, but his mom, Tyneeha Rivers, also works for the Sixers as VP of Human Resources. Mikal and Tyneeha even gave an interview together on ESPN after the pick was announced, with Tyneeha saying “I’m so excited he’s coming home.” But about an hour later, Mikal’s perfect story abruptly ended as the Sixers traded him to Phoenix.
Yesterday, Denmark and Australia tied 1-1…France beat Peru 1-0. And then, Argentina and Croatia played yesterday. Argentina, one of the favorites to win the World Cup, just coming off a draw with Iceland, was looking for a rebound game. They didn’t find it. They lost to Croatia 3-0. Ugly. Today the morning game is Brazil vs. Costa Rica…Then its Nigeria vs Iceland…and this afternoon its Serbia taking on Switzerland.
The NFL is planning to suspend Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston the first three games of the season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, per league sources. The planned suspension stems from an alleged incident with an Uber driver in Scottsdale, Arizona, in March 2016. The league still has not notified Winston of its official decision, and the circumstances surrounding it still could lead to an increase or decrease of the three games, per sources. One source said Winston could be notified as early as Friday, but others think it will be handed down sometime in the next week, per sources. An appeal could be discussed, but they have proven to be largely fruitless in the past, most recently with Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended six games last August. Winston would lose $124,000 in base salary for a three-game suspension because his base salary is only $705,000 this season. His base salary for next season is scheduled to be over $20.9 million, reducing the chance he would consider appealing this three-game suspension.
Just who was that guy sitting on the Seattle Mariners bench, the odd fellow with the bushy mustache, shades and a hoodie? Yup — it was Ichiro! Now a team executive, Ichiro Suzuki donned a Bobby Valentine-style disguise and sneaked into the Seattle dugout Thursday to watch a bit of the action at Yankee Stadium. Officially, Suzuki isn’t allowed to be in the dugout during games under Major League Baseball rules. The 44-year-old outfielder with 3,089 career hits came off the Seattle roster in early May and moved into the team’s front office as a special assistant to the chairman. Suzuki has been taking part in pregame drills and batting practice in a role similar to a coach. But he’s required to leave the bench when games begin, and that’s when he takes his place in the clubhouse — usually, anyway. A photographer spotted Suzuki with his face nearly covered by a fake mustache, sunglasses and a gray hoodie drawn tight over his head during in the first inning as the Yankees hit a pair of two-run homers. He was gone by the second inning of Seattle’s 4-3 loss that completed a New York sweep.
