Stubhub has its uses. Whoever the poor bastard was that bought my WS Game 7 ticket for 3k wasn't taking chances buying tickets outside the Jake. Now, if he was a Cubs fan he's poor but probably not a bastard. I envy him.
Traveling in the Odyssey is traveling in style. That was one of my selling points when we bought ours. Think of all the comfortable rides to OHSAA Playoff football games!
True. It's hard to get jazzed up when your next memory of that team is a complete and utter shellacking.
Tell me about it! I bought 3 tix during halftime of the MSU PSU game when it looked like Sparty had a shot. They proceeded to get dumped and I was left with 3 lousy tickets. Bought for 145 with fees and finally was able to unload for $50 per. In some ways I can't blame these cheap bastards for not wanting to see a game with limited implications but I would have liked them to bail me out! Probably some $5 seats by game day.
I'm glad we have DJ and crew to scan the depths of despair that is Mgoblog to deliver us nuggets of sadness and depression so we readers can be spared from such a nasty and arduous task. In fact, it's been a favorite part of my regular post "The Game" celebrations.
Check out the book "Bad Moon Rising", chronicles the rise and fall of the band.
Also check out Tom Fogerty's Joyful Resurrection on Youtube. John makes an appearance in one verse.
Creedence will always get UVs.
Agreed. I don't know if a public campaign increases the intrigue of the drug and causes a perverse effect but the best way for the heroin epidemic to fizzle out is for people to stop trying it. Escape is nearly impossible.
Glad to hear you made it out. Once it sinks its claws in you it seems it's nearly impossible to shake it loose. Some things should just be left alone. I don't think many people could fight it and win.
Love the Devil at 38,000 feet article, I liked it the last time I found it on a Skull Session too.
You're exactly right. This "model" is catching on in a lot of other industries as well. Cruise ships are segmenting passengers to a far greater degree than they did in the past, allowing folks to pay up for "premium experiences". I used to hate it with the airlines but I'm beginning to get sucked in. For a few extra bucks on a domestic flight you can snag premium economy or even business class. The service level is demonstrably better. I flew premium economy from London to Atlanta on Virgin Atlantic and was ruined. I'll never be able to do economy again on a flight longer than 3 or 4 hours.
Same with Abrederis. Seemed like he played forever.
Pretty sure he was working for Herman.
Spot on. Kiffin's an arse.
Reminds me of my moronic purchase of a yellow Cleveland Indians hat in the 1990s.
Speaking of the arrogant 2006 team, a buddy of mine had a friend on that team. He said during the pre-game meeting in the locker room before the national championship game, Troy Smith said something to the effect of "boys, we already won the championship when we beat Michigan."
I got to see Bobby Landers play Lakewood in the D1 finals two years ago. He seemed like a man among boys. His fumble scoop and score was pretty exciting. He'll do great things and will certainly be playing on Sundays. Take it to the bank.
Your hairline is strikingly similar to that of Forrest Gump's
