Grew up in a small town, went to OU and now buy coal for a large utility. I used to work at a power plant, now I buy 12 M tons per year for them. I have the largest CO2 footprint of ANYONE on 11W.

I don't think there is a plan B.  When your strategy on the date is to pop out of the bathroom butt-naked, you are asking for an either Yay or Nay response. I have never used the approach and I sure don't have $48M in any account or accounts.  My guess is that info would not be released unless it is the number that was required. If you ask a girl if she would have sex with you for a million dollars (hypothetically) and she says yes, all that is left is to negotiate the true price. You have established the morality clause.

Hey wait, that is what I was going to say!  I almost jumped the gun and posted it after reading sooooo much this morning but luckily I caught the post trying in vain to find the bottom.  DJ has nearly created the perpetual Skull Session!

Try not to Drink so much coffee while doing an 8-ball.  It makes your post hard to read. Sort of like you were delivering the entire diatribe in about 15 seconds.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

I have been trying to describe the beat down that Wisconsin took and terms like "Beat Down," "Thumping," "Slaughtering," "Killed," "Dominated," or "Destroyed" just don't fit the bill.  So what is the adjective that describes beating the team soooooo bad that the coach quits?  I will give Gordon a pass since he was probably going pro anyways. But beating the coach out of them is pretty damn impressive and needs the correct adjective.  Help me out here.....

Your link on statistical analysis and fantasy football is why I stopped playing FF.  I approach it like it do fishing, I can't stand being outsmarted by something with a 5 second memory.  In the case of FF, I would try to apply some mathematical tendencies and projections, and end up getting beaten by some woman who thought their uniforms were nice.  Sure this was once or twice a year, but it usually happened when playoffs were taking place.  Like the time I sat Tom Brady due to a windstorm of 40 mph winds and rain.  He threw for over 400 yards and 3 or 4 TDs.

Thanks Johnny, I like the contrast of using references to bending Space-Time in the same write-up as Dumb and Dumber.  That is like a counter in literature.  I like how we got our foot on their throat and then slowly, willfully took the weight off our non-neck foot and pressed down even harder.  #FireFickell? 

Comment 05 Dec 2014

Been there twice and each and every time is nice.  The story of the Texans (slideshow presentation) is cool when you learn the origin of "Come and Take it."  

Isn't VintonCountyBuck County the home of the Amazing Booth brothers?  I remember Jason was one.  

Comment 02 Dec 2014

If I am Wisconsin, I prepare for the most athletic defensive end running down the field with the ball.  Also, I would throw in some Wildcat preparation and zone-read plays as those 3 would probably be 70% of the plays.  If Jones can hit the TE, it loosens the LBs and opens it all up for a Championship.

Comment 25 Nov 2014

Yeah?  It felt like that in the mid-90s also.  Then Michigan beat heavily favored Ohio State due to our apathy.  Never forget!  In the words of John Rambo, "Nothing is over!!!"

Comment 21 Nov 2014

 I agree.  He may, however, be returning to team activities this coming week but not playing time.  Two offenses in less than a year deserve the balance of the year at a minimum.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Wait till you begin missing time DJ.  Not a minute or two here and there, but one like "Where did the summer go?"  or "When did Christmas come so early?"  These are all realities as you get older.  That is why small victories like bacon are vastly important.  You have to throw an anchor out in those rough seas.

Comment 13 Nov 2014

Interesting view here, but compare the last two pictures of the blitzing and coverage cornerback.  In one frame he is sitting down with his legs at nearly a 90 degrees while on the other it seems to be leaning a bit indicative of intent.  It might just be this picture, but since the ball wasn't snapped yet, it could be a 'tell.'

Comment 12 Nov 2014

You know, I have mixed feelings about this.  I was at the Tennessee game vs Florida and they started off the game with Rocky Top and quickly transitioned into some wrapper which might have been Lil John spewing some sort of sordid material that I didn't care for.  The point is, the crowd loved it.  

Even more odd, during commercial breaks, they had some guy with an electric guitar near one of the end zones up in the stands cranking the tunes.  That I liked.  It was different, but didn't alienate the band.  Imagine Terrible Ted there hammering out Stranglehold when Nugent used to get ready to kick.  

Comment 10 Nov 2014

Blue a Jackets are still trying to get out of the ICU at Riverside.  I saw a graphic the other day that had 50% of the Blue Jackets payroll on IR.

Great win by the Bucks.  Young teams sometimes show up and sometimes don't. We know which way this one went now.  Let's hang 40 on Minny.

Comment 07 Nov 2014

As a Bengals fan, I thought the quote by Jeremy Hill was 'interesting' to say the least, "They didn't do anything special to beat us...." 

Obviously not. When the SUCK is that bad it takes just a normal level of playing.  

Comment 05 Nov 2014

The Rosenbergs?  Hmmmm, now that is an outstanding reference.  However I think they were spies and not a huge metallic object that was sunk by a sub.  Either way, both offered are solid references.  Not quite 114 yet, but I am sure that the bacon flowing through my veins isn't helping.  I don't get salty.  I simply clean my guns on the front porch and give the neighborhood somalis' an evil eye when they use our neighborhood to pass through on the way to the basketball court.

Comment 05 Nov 2014

No iPhone?  What is your poison a Samsung?  The fact is that it is still a smartphone.  You may not like the brand, but the phone is a close cousin.  I doubt if Cardale ain't playing no iPhone because he has done a valid comparison. Corporate 'Merica does like the iPhone only because RIM had issues and looked like then like the Lusitania after meeting up with the krauts.

Solo cups are a must. If you don't have the gear for a proper tailgate (grill, generator, tent, fire, TV, etc) suck it up and pay the cash to go to the Varsity Club.  Plenty of TVs and booze although it will get expensive.  You can always get established first, then head there to maintain.  For atmosphere, park near the medical center off of King.  Walk by the stadium and enjoy the experience.

Comment 04 Nov 2014

The only way an SEC team ends up north of the Smokies in December is when the playoff system is expanded to 8 teams and they give the higher ranked team home-field advantage for the first round.  We have to have a dream.....

Comment 03 Nov 2014

For every top quarterback we seem to recruit (not saying TG is destined there), there seems to be better personnel waiting in line.  I will take the athlete option in this class, due to his sick moves. Receiver, H Back, long-snapper, I don't care, reel the fish in and stock the friggin' pond!
