This is an interesting point. On one hand, a male fighter would probably be reluctant to want to lose to a woman. On the other hand, it seems as though a significant percentage of fight fans respect the heck out of Rousey and wouldn't blame a guy for losing to her. I sure wouldn't blame him. (Especially if it's an MMA bout and not straight boxing.)
My neck is very thick and I figure if I attempt to tickle her tummy, her confusion and rage will buy me those extra seconds before blood stops reaching my brain.
I think you mean "Jeremy Piven when he had a bit more OF HIS OWN hair."
I hereby volunteer because it would mean getting eleven seconds of physical contact with her before I lose consciousness.
Am I the only one who's charmed by the fact that Cardale wears T-shirts emblazoned with his own nickname?
Now that Urban Meyer's name has been trademarked by the university, which products should they license with his name?
That's a possibly apocryphal quote from Yogi Berra.
Yogi is famous for saying things that are internally contradictory or redundant. "No one goes to that restaurant anymore. It's too hard to get a table because they're overbooked."
I think we know who shares a stylist with Harbaugh:
Thanks for the compliment! I'm sure you'll be an upvote-qualified member of 11W with a few more posts...which would be easier to achieve...if Buckeye football would finally get here.
Thanks! The ending is my favorite part.
Looks like Harbaugh was jealous of what we have, but don't worry. It all worked out in the end.
He's not into playing sports, which is one of the things that set Hope off, according to the police reports. He's a theater person.
A 17-year-old boy, surprise, surprise, tried to convince his world-class athlete aunt that performing on stage required an athletic mindset. Hope said he was "too fat and overweight and crazy to ever be an athlete." The mother asked Hope to leave and that's when everything started to go down.
Are you saying that tall people are inherently violent and are always the cause of fights that take place off of the basketball court or football field?
I am pretty much in awe of Rousey, too. She seems like a fascinating person and I wouldn't mess with her, either.
Redlegs points out that pro sports have been attacking domestic violence of late. I thought I might point out that just last night, Hope Solo was honored at the Kid's Choice Awards, even as she and her attorneys are preparing for hearings about her case in which she's accused of hitting...that's right. A kid.
It's amazing how a little bit of time can change how we feel...
I just don't think that Harbaugh can be what TTUN wants him to be, aside from winning football games at some point. He doesn't strike me as having the kind of fiery dignity that most great coaches have. Harbaugh definitely isn't the kind of Michigan Man, do-it-the-right-way exemplar that they all seem to think they are.
Harbaugh reminds me of Rob Ford, that crazy mayor from Toronto. Everyone else can see that there's something wrong with his brain, but the people in his hometown love him and keep electing him.
I agree that Jimbo should just ban all of the players from going to bars. I just thought I'd point out that the rate of violent crime has dropped. It's not a "what's going on these days" thing at all...these days are better than ever, even though we increasingly think otherwise.
Sloopy is older than I am, too, but I connect with it because it's tradition. Tradition makes old things new for each generation. Abraham Lincoln was President like, so long ago...why do we even talk about him anymore? Because he's an important part of understanding our story.
New traditions will arise, too. Chanting the White Stripes song is fairly new; in ten years, the kids won't believe the White Stripes speak to them. (If they know who the White Stripes are at all.) And see? We did find a more contemporary song to weave into Buckeye tradition.
...But I can tell from your bio and long winded posts that you're smarter than everyone, so what do I know?
I hope we're enjoying this moment. We just won the National Championship and we are stacked beyond belief.
And TTUN still sucks.
And she should not have touched him at all. No one is allowed to assault anyone else.
You yourself said that a man hitting a woman is different somehow than a woman hitting a man.
Solange Knowles is clearly guilty of an unprovoked assault. She wasn't charged. Why? By your logic, it's because the DA didn't think she did anything wrong.
Has it occurred to you that the reason the DA hasn't yet filed charges could resemble your thought that assault should have a different definition depending on gender?
Here's the video.
In what other ways do you believe men and women should be treated differently by the legal system?
