Ouch, was that a continuation to your previous sentence or the start of another? Lol
Wherever JoePa is, he's offended. Hell, he once wore TWO pairs of pants that were better than Harbaugh's khaki monstrosities.
It doesn't take away from the original, necessarily, but it does damage the credibility of the franchise.
Star Wars survived Episodes 1-3, and Raiders of the Lost Ark is still awesome and beloved despite the crap-pile that is Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
This argument is silly. No one is preventing people from watching the original Ghostbusters; if anything, this will revive interest in the original. Also, while I admire the actresses you've chosen as your dream cast, I think the whole point is casting actors/actresses who don't fit conventional "hero" archetypes. I mean, a studio could've cast Kevin Costner, Mel Gibson, Robert Redford, and Denzel Washington in the original, but then it wouldn't be the same movie.
...the massive uptick of minority based programming.
This is a bad thing?
Related: Kate McKinnon is the funniest current SNL player. Anyone who can convincingly pull of both Angela Merkel and Justin Bieber is aces in my book.
My family has cattle, and we've used quite a few OSU-related names for heifer calves. We have three full sisters named Gamble, Guiton, and Griffin, and we named Gamble's first daughter Germaine. There was a Georgie in there, too. We also have Millie (her sire's name is Braxton; she was born the day #5 started the Colorado game) and Elliott (after Zeke, of course; we call her Ellie for short).
We found them at the new Dick's Sporting Goods at Easton right after the CFP announcement. They're part of the Playoff Diamond Collection. And yes, still $180. (We split the cost on that bad boy. The brother is lucky to have two sisters who love OSU football as much as he does.) And if it makes you feel better, the quality's really good. They're pretty heavy, and the silver stitching is awesome.
The jackets and the Woody undershirts are the best of the non-jersey playoff swag. My sis and I picked one up for my brother for Christmas - he was pretty thrilled.
A bit surprised that we are the "home" team for this event. Would have assumed that Oregon as the #2 team would get home treatment.
Marketing, my friend. No doubt Nike lobbied for the chance to show off the finalists' other uni options. That said, these would be perfect if the numbers on the sleeves weren't black. Loved the road whites.
Why would anyone from the North listen to this inbred show?! It's nothing but a bunt of delusional southerners yelling jibberish.
The same reason people watch Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo and Duck Dynasty. Except I'll take Phyllis from Mulga over overpaid reality yokels any day.
I'm scared of Amari Cooper the way I was scared of Melvin Gordon before the B1GCG. I'm cautiously optimistic that the secondary will be ready for Cooper/Sims. (With emphasis on the "cautious" part.)
Used to work with an attorney that had to mention he was a MENSA in every other sentence. Drove me crazy.
I had a prof in grad school like this, except replace "MENSA" with "Cornell." He was basically Andy Bernard in real life.
Candace Lee's tweets are awesome. Wasn't it during the Navy game that she called out the announcers for pronouncing Darron's name wrong? I think Lachey kept calling him "Da-RON" and she corrected him, tweeting "Like Darren in Bewitched!"
Maybe that's why he said it. He really, really wants Ohio State to rep the B1G well, and he knows that in order to do that, they have to play angry, so...
Pretty sure that's Gracie Gold. Lucky for you, the US usually doesn't send 14-year-olds to the Olympics (cough, China and Russia, cough), so she's legal. (She's 19.)
[Stop] trying to downplay what Barrett has done as a redshirt freshman called up from the bullpen 11 days before the season opener...
...after not taking an in-game snap since his senior year of high school.
The pick-six and non-TD interception that gave Penn State great field position weren't the defense's fault. Eliminate those two major offensive mistakes (and JT's injury) and the game is a blowout in OSU's favor.
I got a ticket from the Parcing [sic] Nazis after the kid who filled out my A-pass paperwork wrote down my license plate number incorrectly. The manager at T&P basically said, "Our bad," and shredded it. BUT STILL.
SOOO much better than their normal unis, which are horrible and contain the bevel from Hell. And considering how much Aggies are stuck in the past, the aged look fits.
So, what I'm getting from this poster is "You don't date crazy."
Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and American Gods are favorites of mine - Gaiman writes beautiful prose and throws in lots of wordplay. Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's Good Omens is perhaps the funniest book ever written about the Apocalypse: The Antichrist is growing up in a suburb after being switched at birth, and the Four Horsemen tool around on motorcycles wreaking havoc.
Also a big fan of Isabel Allende - check out Zorro, her fictional biography of the character. Zadie Smith's On Beauty. Mark Helprin's Winter's Tale. Ooh, and definitely try Hillary Mantel's Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, which are about the politics of the Tudor court during the reign of Henry VIII.
Second Devil in the White City. Erik Larson's book about American diplomats in Nazi Germany, In the Garden of Beasts, is really good too.
YES. The Harry Hole books are excellent - The Snowman in particular is riveting. And gross. But mostly riveting. Nesbo's writing is like Larsson's, but with less legalese and more murder.
WRT your parenthetical, Nebraska uses NU to designate the university system (campuses, administration, sports teams) and UN+campus initial for the campuses (e.g., UNL is Nebraska-Lincoln, the flagship campus that houses the D1 sports programs; UNO is Nebraska-Omaha; UNK is University of Nebraska-Kearney, etc.). The NU regional campus system is a lot like Wisconsin's.
I think you meant "LOL Miss." Flows better.
