I was at the the Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville. Very pro-OSU crowd...St. Patrick's Day...Chicago. It was the perfect storm for absolute mayhem after Lewis made that shot.

Uh oh. Jimmy just pissed off a billion people. Pretty sure it's the Year of the Sheep. Standby for China's response.

Yep, and I think Ruffallo deserves his own movie as the Hulk. They finally have the right actor and the right CG to carry out the role. I was not a fan of the first two Hulk movies, but he stole every scene in the Avengers.

Comment 04 Mar 2015

Like many, I'm skeptical of Affleck in this role. The Dark Knight is far away the best superhero movie I've seen. However, check out some of the the fan trailers that are posted on YouTube for the new Superman/Batman movie. I really like what I've seen thus far and now I'm hopeful.

One of the most underappreciated Buckeyes in my opinion.  He spent his entire senior year getting trashed by many on this board.  Such a shame.  The 2010-11 team that finished the regular season ranked #1 but lost to Kentucky in the tournament is probably my favorite Buckeye team of all time in basketball or football.

Great story by the way.

I know better than to bite the hand that feeds me...free meals no less. Besides, I've seen the grudge you hold against Bollman. I want no part of that.

I'll interject from the law enforcement perspective. If I never have to cut down another marijuana grow, it will be too soon. I have no interest in arresting/prosecuting someone for marijuana itself, particularly here in California where it is already practically legal and any illegal use is seldom enforced. However, it's not usually the marijuana that law enforcement is going after. It's dismantling the criminal enterprises that marijuana cultivation finances. On the surface, the notion of legalized marijuana seems fine to me, if only because it means more time can be directed towards bigger threats/problems. But I also understand that it's ridiculously naive to think that legalizing marijuana is a solution in and of itself. I'm just glad that Colorado and Washington are the guinea pigs for this. Let them figure out how/if this will work and then all the other states can learn from them. I'll skip commenting on the medical, social, and economic aspects. I'm not smart enough to process the magnitude of those topics.  I do know that I would prefer that my kids don't bother with pot though. They'll eventually grow up and be responsible for their own decisions and there are far worse things than pot. However, I've made it through 40+ years without smoking and I don't feel like I've missed anything. Hopefully they'll do the same.

5000!? You guys keep changing the rules on me. You know what, f-this.  I'm out of here.

Where's Ramzy? Hey Ramzy, M Man was right. You suck!

(waits for jail so has an excuse not to come back)

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Well then let this be a cautionary tale for you. As M Man can now attest, recidivism rates are high even among the virtual convicts.

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Is this like a group rehab meeting or something? Cause I sure as hell binge watch.  Currently binging my second viewing of Breaking Bad (first time for my wife so I'm doing it for her). The new season of House of Cards is probably up next. Before that it was The Missing (BBC series which aired on Encore I think). If you haven't seen this, check it out ASAP. It bears many similarities to True Detective and almost nearly as good.

BT, I've thought you were an asshole for years but I don't want you to get bounced...yet.

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Another classic moment is when he argued to no end that the skirmish against TTUN in 2013 during the kickoff return was instigated by Dontre Wilson. It was Wilson that started the whole thing because he got up too rough. Seriously.

Come to think of it, M Man has provided us with a lot of fodder over the years. I'm sure going to miss him.

Oh wait...no I won't. 

Comment 28 Feb 2015

I posted this last night when M Man was flaming about some other stupid thing but I will post again. I know it probably seems like I'm doing this just to pile on, which I am:

I'm no longer charmed by the notion of a Michigan fan coming here saying nice things about Ohio State and thinking, gee what a great guy, he must not be like all the rest. The fact is M Man has proven himself to live up to every stereotype we've affixed to the notion of a Michigan Man. His posts often exude arrogance and condescension. Maybe his responses are sometimes justified because he's taking a beating in the comments and only defending himself, but too often he's not. He's just stirring shit, like this entire post, and then takes this "who me?" attitude explaining that's not what he meant. We must all be the ones who misunderstand. Well I'm not buying it anymore.  The bad day you're referring to wasn't just a bad day. He was told to stop flaming repeatedly but couldn't help himself because dammit, he's just right and everyone else has it wrong (sorry M Man but Gibbons is a sexually assaulting piece of shit, get over it). And when he was finally allowed back in, he promptly went back to defending himself and claimed he was singled out and mistreated (just like he did above).  I respect the voting policy and have never given him a down vote, but I don't shed a tear for him when just his presence on a post yields a bunch of unwarranted DVs. Thems the breaks.

Sorry Oyster, but I have to disagree. I'm no longer charmed by the notion of a Michigan fan coming here saying nice things about Ohio State and thinking, gee what a great guy, he must not be like all the rest.

I worked as a runner for NBC during game 6 of the Bulls-Sonics finals in 1996. I use the term 'work' loosely because I spent most of my time wandering around the United Center going wherever I wanted with my all-access pass. I had many brushes with all kinds of celebrities that day. I had to get Bob Costas from one place to another. Got food for the pre and post-game announcing crew (Dr. J, Peter Vescey, and I think Costas again). The best part was standing on the court for the player introductions, which in Chicago at the time was a huge deal. Close behind was being in the Bulls locker room after they clinched the championship (I had no business being in the locker room of course but what the hell). MJ, Pippen, Phil Jackson all standing around celebrating. Me and a buddy (fellow 11W-er actually) are just taking it in when I suddenly get drenched from behind. My buddy leans over to me and whispers "Ron Harper just poured a can of beer on your head." It was Heneiken and I'm pretty sure Harper was drunk before the game even ended.

Keith Byars is my favorite Buckeye. Dan Marino is my favorite NFL player. I was at the game where Marino broke the all time TD mark on a pass to none other than Byars. That was a cool experience for me. Jump forward a few years later. I went to Marino's retirement ceremony at Joe Robbie. All sorts of former players were there. I bumped into Byars and took a picture with him. The first and only time I've done that with anyone of any level of celebrity.

Land mammals up there get scary huge.

Land mammals? Who gives a sh-t about land mammals. It's the land octopuses we have to worry about now.
