Forget the movies. Just sign up for HBOGo (free with any subscription even a trial subscription) and catch up on their original programming. True Detective, The Wire, Game of Thrones, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Extras, True Detective, True Detective, and True Detective.

Seriously, HBOGo alone is worth the price of the subscription. They're actually going to start offering that as a standalone option.

Posts with RANDOM capitalizations BECAUSE the writer THINKS he's making HIS point better by yelling it OUT on  a KEYboard. 

Seriously dude, just stop. It's obnoxious and I automatically stop READING.

And while Festivus was technically on 12/23, this post was awesome. Step up Tennessee and get yourself even more upvotes, you helmet sticker hog you.

(Edit: Not the Tennessee I was thinking of. Nevertheless, step up and watch yourself get your upvote privileges pretty damn fast)

The NORAD site has been on constant refresh for hours here. I'm told he was just somewhere in Mississippi. The kids put out reindeer food somewhere in the lawn which means I get to go out there at midnight in the freezing cold (granted, it's California cold) and find it, lest they think the reindeer are pissed at them. Going to be a long night.

I would settle for a win against Bama. Seriously, if we beat Bama, I don't care what happens next. It would be like the U.S. beating the Soviets in Lake Placid (maybe a little hyperbole there but just a little). Yes, they went on to win the gold, but had they not, it wouldn't have mattered. No one talks about the gold medal game. Just beat Bama and come what may.

To be fair, this light show was first displayed last year at this time, which makes it before the FSU-AU national championship game.  So it was very much awesome and timely then.  I have no idea if he has the same display going right now, but still impressive.

None bigger than Lewis's shot in my opinion, but none badder than Craft's simply because no one could have ever expected that.

More unflattering Vegas odds about Ohio State and the B10, but still interesting:

It seems that every year around this time we're saying that this is the year the B10 finally shocks the pundits (and oddsmakers for that matter). The homer in me says that this WILL finally be the year, though I really could not care less how the other nine B10 teams fare. Just beat Bama.

Man, sounds like you were not a good prom date. Someone's father is still hunting you down.

Go read the article about the young man who is paying for a trip to Disney for another man with cerebral palsy. With all the horrible stuff going on in the last two days alone, this is a welcome relief.
Comment 10 Dec 2014
Ouch. I feel like you just cheapened my diploma. As a University of Chicago grad, i would like to point that when they left the B10, they were a) still relevant in football and b) still wanted. TTUN is getting to a point where they can make neither claim.

Your brother did good starting this post. What the hell have you done, slacker? At least we know who the good brother is.

Same margin of victory but Wisconsin was on the road. Still, I don't think this tells us much about the Buckeye team. Just looking forward to watching the team grow.

Comment 06 Dec 2014

Never.

Comment 06 Dec 2014

BuckeyeinGA, you are definitely not alone in this. I've sworn by the Fox curse for years. I don't think we've won a postseason game on Fox (wasn't the Sugar Bowl a few years ago on ABC or ESPN?).  I've thought a lot about this. I'm always discombobulated by their broadcasts. It's like when Costanza goes to Jerry's apartment after the new cabinets go up and he starts getting agitated because everything is different. That's how I feel about games on Fox.

Johnny, you deserve some serious upvotes for creating this post. So interesting to hear how far and wide the 11W community reaches. It's a testament to the site and the staff.
