My boyfriend was actually yelling at the tv about it, but we stuck it out, and watched the B1G championship on YouTube after.
The editing was truly horrible. I may be alone in this, but I like hearing all the commentary and, I dunno, seeing the WHOLE game.
And . . . The Drain Wig? I'll stick to the "harsh chemicals," thanks.
Nice comedic relief, though.
We counted 8 commercials followed by a mere 4 plays, then 4 commercials followed by 2 plays.
*Someone* knew that playing a Buckeye marathon would bring in viewers. I feel like such a sucker. YouTube, next time.
But at least I now have all these commercials on my dvr!
This is a school story, not a work story, but it's pretty funny (though mortifying at the time).
While working on my masters in tax law, I was required to do a presentation for my Tax Research class. I hate doing presentations, but I had fun putting it together and thought I had an interesting topic. I even got with the times and did PowerPoint slides.
The presentation was to be given in a large lecture hall that boasted a stage and podium, with a very large screen behind it for presentations. When it was my turn, I took my laptop up and hooked it up to the projector. Nothing. Someone suggested I restart the computer. I do so, and as it restarts, all these stupid IM windows start popping up. I'm embarrassed, and closing them frantically, until there is only one status message left on the screen.
There, projected behind me in huge letters was my away message, clearly visible to my classmates and my unamused professor in the front row.
It read, "FUCK TAX."
(Hey, at least it wasn't porn!)
I think I'm reading #14 and #17 differently than others are. It says "your institution," not "your program." To me, this means that he was not suspended or dismissed from Boise State as a school, not that he was not suspended or dismissed from the football team. I think Briles is hoping people won't make the distinction, and thus think Peterson/Boise State withheld info. Eff that player, eff Briles, and eff Baylor.
Wilson committed last night. Tonight I am seeing The Who. Tomorrow is NSD. Saturday is my birthday. This just might be the best week ever!*
*Except for the whole trying to get organized to move while still working thing. That part still kinda sucks. Has anyone invented teleportation yet? That would make things SO much easier!
I have an idea for the 43rd best moment on the Maury Show: Manti Te'o lie detector!
"You were asked, 'Did you fabricate a girlfriend in order to draw attention to your performance on the field and manipulate awards voters?' You said no, and the lie detector shows..... THAT...was a lie."
This is exactly what I was thinking. Te'o also claimed to have met her in person. As the girl in the photos says she has never met Te'o, you'd think he would have noticed that the girl he met (assuming the alleged hoax was so complex that they sent some girl to Hawaii to perpetuate it) was not the same as the one in the pics.
As annoying and stupid as this incident is, this news about the cop allegedly injuring himself during the alleged chase bothers me. (On a clearly much more extreme level, just offered for what comparison there may be)... One of my friends was a police officer, young, in shape, who died of cardiac arrest chasing a guy who ran after harassing some store clerks. The guy who ran got jail time. Clearly different (a misdemeanor-manslaughter compared to misdemeanor-whatever), but, assuming for the sake of argument that the police actually announced who they were (which I doubt - I'd bet it was more of a "Hey! What do you think you're doing?!")... No bueno.
I agree, dumbfuckery on all accounts. But, as it is, it has made the news. Some sort of something (short of suspension, because that would be silly) will be done because it's now national shit.
Here's the scenario in my head, based on Stoneburner's comment and the other reports: Stoneburner, Mewhort, and the 3rd guy had been out drinking, and decided to use an alley as a bathroom. Someone (as it turns out, the police) shined a light on them. They couldn't see who it was initially (blinded by the light, also may have assumed it was the business owner or whomever), and ran. When they realized it was the cops, they stopped. Cops say they ran, so they are arrested. Stupid all the way around, but not worth any missed games unless more comes out. Maybe they should have to clean out the stadium bathrooms after a couple games *gags*...
