I'd love to see some of our O linemen take a trip down I-71 and land in the Jungle. At least the Bengals get to the playoffs now and again, and maybe Dalton could get a little pass protection.
Right. I'm sure that for the immediate future, their families will help get his widow & kids through what needs to be done. I know, though, that in the years to come, Buckeye Nation will come together and help this family out in whatever way they need us.
Regarding the story on training Hollywood horses, Google Jimmy Stewart's horse sometime. The horse's name was Pie, and Jimmy rode him for 22 years in all his Westerns. Jimmy swore the horse knew when the cameras were turning. At the end of Pie's life Jimmy helped bury him, and seeing how broken up Jimmy was, Henry Fonda painted a portrait of Jimmy and Pie.
I had to sneak into the theater to see it since I wasn't old enough to see an R movie at the time. (Actually, five of us girls from my Girl Scout troop snuck in together to see it.)
Hate me if you want, but I still have the album I bought in the lobby that night. There was some shitty disco music, admittedly (Gene Kelly?? Ethel Merman??) but there was also some decent, fun stuff.
Mr Chick grew up in Springfield; graduated from North. When he took me home to meet his folks the first time, about 30 years ago, it was a nice little city. Now, the only time we go there is for family funerals and we get the hell out as soon as we can. Like many other small cities in Ohio, it's dying a slow, painful, unfortunate death.
I understand wanting to get out of there, but going to AA seems like jumping from the frying pan into the fire...
You're right, of course. But that wasn't the only reason. That game was a coaching head-scratcher. Zeke wasn't the only one wondering why the hell the best back in the country wasn't getting any touches. And the rain seemed to completely freak out whoever was calling the plays. Sparty was the better prepared team, and on that day had the superior coaching and game plan.
I visited a friend who lives in Northport, ME last spring (offseason). The local hobbies seem to be frantically making junk for the tourists to buy, drinking Fireball shots, and beating the crap out of each other. I was happy to get the hell out of there, and I told her that I would buy a ticket for her to come to Cbus, but I'm never going back there again.
Mr. Chick uses this stuff called Liquid Stoopid. "Taste the IQ points melt away!" He also swears by N'awlins Voodoo Sauce, with habaneros and Scotch bonnets. I think it has something to do with the wretchedness of my cooking...
Yes. The property was sold to Walgreens, which tore it down to build yet another drugstore (like the east side really needed another Wags).
I remember a famous movie star explained it this way: "I don't pay hookers to go to bed with me. I pay them to leave."
Re: the list of foods to never eat...I never could understand why people actually pay good money to slurp down things that look like giant loogies. I suspect that, as our oceans continue on their way to eventually becoming gigantic hot tubs, seafood in general is going to become more and more problematic. My dad used to have these pathology books that had pictures of all the things that live in raw meats and seafood...and what they looked like inside the people that ate said rawness. I still won't eat sushi...
I know that story has to break the heart of any human that has one to break. But I think for those like me who fought infertility issues for years, only to finally realize that one of humanity's basic needs, to have and raise children, would be denied us--and the grief you go through--
and then to read this, about people who took this miracle and literally threw it away like so much trash--
well, it makes you realize that nothing about this world will ever make any sense at all.
I love Atlanta, but gotta tell you...Atlanta traffic is The. Worst. Anywhere. I've driven in NYC, LA, Boston, DC...Atlanta just sucks. It's eight or nine lanes of people idling, 24/7.
I lived in the Seattle area for about 7 years. The first winter, the whole city shut down because of 2 inches of snow. We couldn't believe it. Part of the problem there is that they have no snow removal equipment or any way to melt it (no salt, brine, etc due to concerns about the effect on Puget Sound). So, the first cars to drive on it basically turn it to ice. Combine that with hilly topography and you've got yourselves a fun time!
One of the best things I did in my life was to live alone for about 6 months when I was 19. I thought a lot about what really mattered to me in life, what I wanted (and didn't want) out of life, and what I truly believed...not my parents, my friends, or my teachers. I went to school and kept in touch with people, but for the most part I was alone with my thoughts. So glad I went through that process!
I know a cocktail waitress at the Hollywood Casino who has been telling me about her partying with Zeke for a year now. I kept hoping she was exaggerating...guess she wasn't.
Explains a lot, doesn't it?
This is awesome! I just started my annual after-the-holidays diet, and this is really going to help. Every time I want to eat something, I'll watch this. The nausea should keep me from food for hours! I'm gonna make goal weight in record time. Thanks, Bert!
God, you scUM fans really make North Koreans look rational. I know it's difficult, but try actually reading the results of the last 15 meetings between the two teams. I understand that you won a lot of games when dinosaurs roamed the earth, but no one under 60 really cares.
It's really not even a rivalry anymore. Why don't you just concentrate on making yourselves less of a laughingstock and leave us to our business of dominating the conference, okay? Run along.
Did anyone else watch the West Virginia vs Arizona State bowl game? I saw an ASU defender do the exact same thing Bosa did...and didn't even get flagged, let alone ejected.
I will always have a problem with penalties being called differently depending on the crew working the game. Why bother codifying rules if they can't/won't be applied to everyone the same way?
Tom Herman's Houston team opens their season in September with...Oklahoma!
We will be able to see their strengths and weaknesses, and Urban can confer with Herman after the game and get the real scoop. I think it's a big plus for us!
Will it be repeated on one of the ESPNs anytime soon?
Isn't it time to give Ferentz another obscene contract extension?
Iowa is a fraud, but running trick plays when you're waay up is bush league.
