I tried some Skyline Chili at a Reds' game a couple of weeks ago.  Picked up daughter from grad school when semester ended and we did six MLB games in six days at a six different stadiums.  Wonderful father-daughter trip.

So we tried Skyline at GAMB (which is a fabulous ballpark) and we liked it.  It's good!  Our only confusion was "why is it called chili?"  There's nothing chili about it.  As Texans we know about chili - and it has to have CHILI PEPPERS in it to be - wait for it - called "chili."

In Texas Skyline Chili would be called "Sloppy Joes."  And again, I got no problem with them.  They are good.  Apart from this semantic misunderstanding I love'em and would eat them all the time.  #SkylineGreatness

Matt Millen?!  He's dreadful and any time he makes a comment all I can think is "You drafted a WR five years in a row IN THE FIRST ROUND for the Detroit Lions who were the worst team in professional football.  What can you possibly know about football?"

Can we just make it a rule to have a great play from the Wisky game, Bama game or Ducks game in every Skull Session?  IT JUST STARTS THE DAY RIGHT, you know?

I kinda think it ought to be permanently installed in Jerry World.  Seems like things went well the last time we played there...

My first act as Prime Minister of the Universe will be to end the designated hitter rule. But my second act will be to make Gus Johnson the official announcer of everything.

Ordered my jerseys on March 15.  They arrived yesterday.  Not kidding.

The workmanship is exquisite.  I'm sure someone could tell they they didn't come from the officially official source but most folks couldn't.  They even have tags on them.  The swoosh is the multi-faceted diamond swoosh, the patches are perfect, the numbers are sewn on.  In short, they are schweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

The only problems are (1) the sleeves are a little long (as you can tell in the pics - they are almost "pitching sleeve" length - what's up with that?!) and (2) the sizing.  The sizing is the big problem.  You can see a white SMALL laying on top of a scarlet LARGE and you can tell they aren't hardly any different at all.  What you are supposed to be seeing is white jersey that would be equivalent to an American large and a scarlet jersey that should be an XXL.  The white one will do but the scarlett one is not even close.  I'll have to email the seller.

All in all I'm very pleased.  They are GREAT jerseys, especially for the money.  And 15 days to get here?!  Awesome.  Custom numbering and GRIFFIN on the back?!  Even more awesome.

And in other news, the NCAA announced a long investigation into potential violations by the term of the coach's will.  An NCAA spokesman said they were concerned "this might violate the student-athlete's amateur status."  He offered no comment on whether any of these players ever went to class.

Not gonna lie - the thought of Wiskey or Sparty grabbing the brass ring here and giving the B1G championships in the two sports that matter is hard to resist.  TAKE THAT SEC!  B-1-G!  B-1-G!  

(no, I would never chant that unless I was in Alabama wearing an 85 Yards Through the Heart of the South t-shirt, and then only because it would so confuse Bama fans I could make my getaway).

Never, ever understood Forest Gump.  Just sheer misery to watch.

Johnny Depp is a long run of dreadful films, including the Lone Ranger.  wow - that was beyond terrible.  I'd re-watch the NC game with Florida again before I'd watch that movie over!

anybody else notice that Tom Cruise plays mostly the same character in all his movies?  he's the Mission Impossible covert agent guy.  when you play the same part over and over that's not called great acting...

>>other than, you know something like Cardale Jones checking-in at halftime and finishing with a 20-15-10 line

oh please ... please ... please make it so!

* Anybody who thinks TV networks/distribution will look like it does now ten years from now isn't paying attention and probably still owns stock in a buggy whip company.

* My Direct TV bill hit almost $100 (we don't do premium movie channels).  Wife fed up.  I need the BTN.  Called DTV and got routed to "customer retention."  the guy cut the bill in half as soon as I said "we're looking at Dish."  I've been with them 7-8 years I guess.  yup, it'll just gradually ease up again but it was a nice reset.

* ESPN knows it's in trouble here since they don't have a product of their own - they just televise stuff.  So they have to stay ahead or they are the middle man that gets cut out (aka the BTN).

There's a Cereality in DFW airport, IIRC.  Pretty ridiculously expensive for a bowl of cereal.  Crazy amount of toppings to add but it's still cereal.  I LOVE cereal but still...  Not sure McDonalds and Chic Fil A need to be looking over their shoulders at this quite yet...

1. Ohio State football - the king.  Period.  No question.

2. Dallas Cowboys football - five SB rings but nothing in a really long time.  we're just a GM away from being great again.

3. Texas Rangers baseball - the source of much misery and heartache.  We're the American League Cubs, only not as old.  GIve us another 100 years and we'll be there.

3a. Ohio State basketball - in March this can move up.

4. High school football - I live in the land of high school football: Texas.  yes, it's all-some.

5. NASCAR - 200 mph left turns.  fun.

6. Winter Olympics.

May the good Lord save us from a day in college fb where a shaving cream ad is the main and first thing you notice across the center of the jersey and there's a tiny patch in the corner that mentions the team.  Barbasol?!

Curious about payment - I think somewhere in this monster thread someone says something about using a debit card to avoid credit card theft issues.  Anybody do this?  Everybody do this?  More info on that please?

Comment 24 Feb 2015

one of the great things about our NC run this year is that in the highlights (which we will see forever) we LOOK like the Ohio State Buckeyes.  someone posted a Brax clip somewheres and I didn't even recognize it was us!
