To kill a screaming 2 year old at the bar where we watch the Steelers? And the Dad too?

Dude comes to the bar with his daughter and stays for the entire game. His kid would let out an ear piercing scream, about every 45 seconds. No lie. For the duration. No toys or anything to keep her busy. Just strapped her into the high chair and drank beer with his buddy. Some fries at halftime, offered a short break, then it was back to the screaming. Misery.

Depends om whether they were Steeler fans.

If "no," then "no, it would not have been wrong to kill them," so long as you dispatched them swiftly, in order to minimize the noise of their demise interfering with the enjoyment of the rest of the game.

If "yes," then "yes, it would have been wrong to kill them," and it would have been best to simply knock them both unconscious with a bottle over the head.

Next time call CPS or something, maybe there's a Steeler fan there.

Children of that age should not be foisted upon the world, it's just not right.  Sorry, pops, you don't get to leave the house with child until it is properly trained.

That woulda solved the problem.

Screaming kids put me over the edge in about 15 seconds.

When you are talking about someone's kid, and how easily they are offended or how much ego they have, it could easily become a fistacuffs in mere seconds.  Tough call.

BV's major rule for his own kids - no screaming.  When they are outside playing in the summer - no screaming for the sake of screaming.  Do the neighbors really want to listen to that?  NO.  The neighbor kids scream constantly.  If they are in my yard, playing with my kids, I tell them if they want to scream, go do it in their own yard.   :cranky:

Did your buddy show up again this week with his screamin kid?

I saw the other guy that was sitting with him and as soon as he walked in, I asked if that little jackal would be back. Thankfully, no.

But...some new dude showed up and decided to tell us his life story. He was either heavily medicated or just completely fucked up. First, he tells us about his stroke and his wife sending him his divorce papers while he was in the hospital. Then he told us about the best time he had watching the Steelers in Cleveland, IL...then he corrected himself and said it was Cleveland, MO. Told us about all this Steelers memorabilia he had to get rid of. Some Iron City wine bottles and stuff from Triple A Field. He'd watch the game in one section of the bar and then walk over to our section and ask what the score was. Said he couldn't see the screen. Dude, if you can't see the 60" screen, why did you make the trip to the bar?

I'm hoping I can watch at home next week. It's been misery the last 2 weeks. Unless the Rams get blacked out or they move the game, I'll have no choice but to go back.

I absolutely can't stand watching the game in a bar. 

I figure if I watch half the games in a bar, and half are televised locally, I'll spend roughly $30 at the bar.  At least a few drinks, something to eat and tips.  That's $240 right there and enough to cover the cost of The Ticket.  If it is realistically more like 10 games at the bar, and $300, it is a no brainer.  Plus when there is other stuff going on, I can record and start watching part way through the game.  I can also pet the dog and brush him during the game, becasue I love him so.

I like watching it with some other fans. Usually that's at the bar. We used to chimney it up, so the bar was the place. Also don't need to worry about the language, at the bar. It's cheap where we go. Run a tab, they miss a few...$20-25 tops.

But the worthless Rams may give me no choice. Hopefully, I can just invite the crew over and watch it in HD on the 57".

What do you do when they make a great play? Scream, stand up and offer daps to yourself?

Bars around here are worthless.  Either too crowded, with a bunch of yuppie 20-something know-nothings and an over-priced menu, or a local dive with some damning element.  Typically, we would risk the latter, now that we've forgone the Ticket on a price-per-game-to-be-missed basis. 

Against the Bears, we go to this local spot.  "The Tops," it's called.  Hasn't been renovated since Eisenhower was president.  With the new smoking laws, fewer bars can allow smoking, following some weird percentage formula of business take at the bar and separate access doors for the bar.  Bottom line, The Tops is apparently some sort of smoker's paradise.  OK, some folks smoking, no biggie, but this is a 15-seat horseshoe with no apparent ventilation.  Couple of drunken alligators, with maybe 6 teeth between them, stake out center stage and opine loudly on how much they want the Steelers to lose, how Ben's a rapist, all that shit.  Younger guy near us tries reasoning with them; I smile a "fuck you very much" type look and ignore them, as the wife is along.  Our eyes are on fire.  The televisons, arrayed over the ancient bar bottles, are no larger than 24" each.  I order some wings, forget what she had, we're getting bloated on lite beer and not enjoying any of it.  The bathroom looks like something out of Abu Graib, and at first the pterodactyl barmaid in charge of the scene can't change the DirecTV channel to the correct station, even though we told her it was 712 or whatever the fuck it was.  So I have to go help her, back in the filthy area where they apparently store the big cans of tomatoes and the mice bait and shit like that, and all the so-called electronic equipment looks like it was built in Eastern bloc countries circa 1981 and is covered in some sticky reduction of grying grease that has congealed out of the air. 

Believe me, I was more interested in seeing a movie and catching the recap than suffering that shit with the local yokels again.
