Nairion - Are you reading the same article I am? Focus buddy!
I've had the distinct pleasure (read DISPLEASURE) of being guardian of The Starcat (the real one) for a few days in the not so distant past. With my severely-sliced-almost-severed right hand and with my blood covering my kitchen floor from placing her in her carrying cage, the words "all cats are an embodiment of serenity" were not the first thing that came to mind.
The Rupert Drop WMD was in excess of 6 minutes itself so it's obvious you're not partaking of the "full monty" on these very well-done Skull Sessions. Your loss I'd say. Selah.
I spit my morning coffee all over my laptop upon seeing the Purdue President's "sweet" hair. Should I contact your or Jason for reimbursement of my anticipated repair costs? Keep up the great work!
Congrats Jason - You have a great thing going and should be immensely proud of how it is continuing to grow - Keep up the great work - Looking forward to your format change and also to seeing you at next year's Eat Too Brutus - GO BUCKS!
Have a good winter WARREN G - I'm going to miss your tales on Wednesdays - Certainly hope to hear from you next season - GO BUCKS!
Absolutely unbelievable - May not be able to go to sleep here by my usual 8:30pm after having read Warren G"s "diary" for the fourth (fifth?) time this afternoon - Fantastic!
However, I would have taken the other side in the Ball State / Northern Illinois game - Northern Illinois is a "power" in their division.
GOOD LUCK COMPADRE!
I'm thinking it's closer to 364 days until Halloween comes around again rather than 334. Whaddya think?
WARREN G - You are on a "roll" beginning with these three picks - ALL WINNERS - May the remainder of the schedule treat you well!
Brilliant young man - briliant! Keep up the good work.
Warren G - Good picks - You are on your way back!
Welcome back Warren G. - I missed you - I only have $8,000 I can throw down this weekend but I am looking forward to having "major cash" by the end of the season. i will follow the games closely and am fully enamored by your ability to play "gut" games. May "the force" continue to be with you.
Thank you Warren G. and DJ (by proxy)
Great Skully DJ - If anything in this article pisses anyone off I'd say it's on them and not on you! Keep up the great work!
Regarding all the comments from readers appalled with DJ's first paragraph - I don't think you can "desecrate" something that is not "revered." End of story!
DJ - You certainly got the readership fired up today! Super Skully - Keep up the great work!
I lived in Los Angeles for the last several years of Earle Bruce's OSU coaching career. The only Ohio State regular season game we got on West coast TV during the early 80's was the annual game against Michigan. Every year the game was on TV all my buddies could comment on was Earle's fedora. They continually laughed about Columbus "having to be a cowtown" to endure a coach that looked like "some low-level mafia capo." I had no option but to agree with them - I, too, thought he looked like a clown - 10-4 good buddy on your fedora rant - Good stuff!
Well done DJ - you have insight well beyond your years! However, your phrase "people under 26 just wouldn't understand" I suspect should have read "people OVER 26 just wouldn't understand." Whaddya think?
Exceedingly well-done my friend! I agree whole-heartedly.
In my world this issue basically comes down to simply answering this question:
What is the MOST UNDERSTANDABLE mistake in the entire scenario, and as such, should make that mistake the MOST FORGIVEABLE?
(1) A fully-grown man, in a position as the highest-paid state employee (by far) in Ohio, blatantly lies to the organization which oversees the "business" he is in charge of?
(2) An immature 22-year-old (I fully realize the redundancy in that phrase) takes advantage of a situation in which he finds himself allowing him to pocket a little money to do what 22-year-olds like to do?
Unless you're wearing the moral and ethical blinders I see Ohio State fans wearing in full force when analyzing this situation, Terrelle Pryor's mistake was BY FAR the most understandable which, in turn, makes his mistake, in my mind, eminently more forgiveable.
Keep up your great writing!
