Hounds. Grown-ass men pushing grannies aside to grab up armloads of jerseys really piss me off.

Gators. I actually spent money and went to that abomination in person. Truly hell on earth.

Truthers, because, well, they're the U right?

The SEC. I hope they slide back into obscurity, never to be heard from again.

What was Iowa's AD going to say, really?

"Well, yeah, I screwed up. Ferentz had a good year, a few places came sniffing around, and I panicked. You can bet your ass I'll never do that again!"

Beautifully done. Thank you.

I'm sure Coop is a good guy, but I hated it when he would refer to his own players by number. I really think he didn't know who they were! Couldn't believe it.

MLB will forgive anything...as long as you kiss their ass. Pete doesn't kiss anybody's ass.

Let him in.

Comment 12 Jul 2015

I remember bitching to a Tennessee coworker that Cooper couldn't seem to grasp the importance of The Game. (Hell, that's why we hired him...he beat ttun in a bowl game!) 

She said in that southern drawl, "Sit him down, point at the Michigan team, and say 'You see them? That is Alabama.'"

I think this will be Urban's biggest challenge this season: managing the hype and expectations surrounding this team. Ensuring that they are confident but not overconfident; proud but not arrogant; having fun but taking every game seriously. As the late W.W. Hayes said...when someone praises you, kick them in the shin.

Expect him everyone to play out of their minds this year.

Not to mention that dogs need rules and loving discipline (like toddlers), and dogs want to be dogs, not your fantasy lover/child.

The only time I ever medicated my dog was on a vet's recommendation. Doggie downers for thunderstorm phobia. The poor thing went through hell if I didn't give her something.

My parent's next-door neighbors were a nice elderly couple who were richer than just about everyone not playing a  major pro sport. They lived in a nondescript house, drove Ford Crown Vic's (what else?!), bought their clothes at Marshall's and got their haircuts at Great Clips. A big night on the town was dinner at Frisch's. I asked her once why they didn't spend their money on all the big ticket items others do, and she told me they worked too damn hard for it to piss it away on junk that had no meaning. There were quite a few Muirfield residents who had really nice houses but didn't have much inside them. Envy the 1%? Not me.

Was anyone else listening to Urban's radio show last fall when Shelley called in? She used a fake name (Sasha) and started riding his ass...until he figured it out! They proceeded to playfully tease one another for a few minutes. Obviously, no outsider can know what really goes on in someone else's relationship, but from the outside, they seem like a wonderful couple. And I really dig Shelley/Sasha!

He is an amazing young man. I'm a fan...but I'm a fan of Braxton and JT, too! It's kind of like having to choose which one of your kids is your favorite.

This is going to sound crazy, but the most pain I was ever in was when I broke the little toe on my left foot. OMG, it hurt so bad I couldn't even stand having a sheet over my foot. They took an x-ray, said "yep, it's broken," and sent me home. No boot, no pain meds, no nothing. Took forever to heal, and I'm not sure it ever did heal correctly. It happened over 20 years ago and it still hurts when conditions are right.

Comment 30 May 2015

I am glad Braxton's having fun. Really, I am.

But...the mom in me went: Oh my goodness, get the hell off that thing! If you fall and hurt your damn shoulder again, don't come running to me!

Comment 30 May 2015

I don't drink beer, but I like the idea of the craft/local beer sales. The fact is, college kids today seem to have a lot more spending money than I and my friends did 30 years ago, so I think affordability isn't that large an issue.

I would like to add an admittedly minor annoyance that I'd like to see changed: the inability to go back into the Shoe after you've left. I don't see any reason why other B1G stadia can manage this and we can't, other than just plain "don't wanna do it."

I had to go to an office on Cleveland Avenue and get fingerprinted when I got my pre-check last year. Worth the hassle, though.

Comment 19 May 2015

On the positive side, the humanities teach one how to think. Symbolic logic was probably the most useful course I took at The. Critical thinking is sadly lacking today, imho.

What pisses me off at my beloved A&S: I'm the degree-holder. I'm the one they call when they want money. I'm the one who gives money to them. Yet the insist on addressing their alumni mag to my husband. Despite my emails, they continue this mad behavior. It may be a little thing, but if you want me to continue giving you money, at least pretend to value me.

Sorry, but I was a Cowboys fan long before Jerry Jones came on the scene. How can you hate the Cowboys when one of the (very) few true heroes in the NFL is a Cowboy? Native son of Ohio, still married to his high school sweetheart, graduate of the US Naval Academy and veteran of Vietnam (who did his tour in-country), two-time Super Bowl QB, Heisman Trophy winner, and all-around decent human being...Roger Staubach. Hell, he saved Hollywood Henderson's life when Hollywood was a coked-up, washed-up lost cause.

Roger Staubach is the real deal.
