All this over Herbie making a comment? For Chrissakes, he's a Buckeye, former Buckeye QB, and a nice counterpoint to the Des-mond. Rather have another former SEC jock- clown calling games? Save your hate for TTUN, Bert, the "Little Nicky and Lane" show, and any asshat who chants "SEC-SEC-SEC".
TTUN already received their helping of Bama leftovers (Nussmeier), so no thanks. Why isn't Auburn on his list? Is there not enough room in their 2014 budget to pay him?
Two words: Sausage Gravy
Would love to see Little Douchie and The Mad Hatter taking their 'Crootin on the road and into the living rooms of LSU prospects. Would make for good entertainment, possibly even an ESPN mini-series, with voice-overs by Paul Finebaum: "Hatter & Douchie".
In Episode One, The Hatter explains to a recruit why he claps the way he does (like a seal), says its because he once jammed an index finger applauding an extra point. Douchie chimes in that its always important to stay away from anything called the clap. The recruit is immediately sold on LSU. In Episode Two, Hater and Douchie pose as NCAA officials and prank call Nick Saban.
Yah - remember how pained Meyer looked when Bryant was injured and how he telegraphed how big of a blow it would be? I tended to chalk it up to some kind of hyperbole at the time, but it was genuine anguish, because he knew what it really meant.
I've always been an Ash man.
I guess time really is a flat circle.
As Groucho Marx famously said "I wouldn't want to join any club that would have me as a member".
With Larry Johnson on the front end and Chris Ash on the back end, redemption for the D is at hand.
Is there a crazed Buckeye fan somewhere in South Carolina who will dump some rat poison on the granite so it will die like the oak trees at Auburn?
In response to the incredible job Marotti has done with OSU player development, TTUN has hired their own fitness guru to challenge and motivate their players:
Note how both participants in the background are actually wearing some rendition of TTUN colors!
Did someone say Wonder Lick?
Southwest Ohio is doing quite well. Lots of growth between Dayton and Cincy, and Cincy is also doing well.
Good stuff AV - Ohio is still "flyover country" to the ignorati, but it feeds the world (literally). Ohio could support itself if it had to - we have huge supplies of water, rich farmland, manufacturing areas of expertise, natural resources, forests, rivers, you name it. The ultimate Preppers state.....
Agree that Global Climate Change is a more accurate name. Then again, the climate is always changing, so it's not very controversial to call it that. But remember that, in the 70's, scientists were mainly concerned about Global Cooling, and fretted that we were heading towards a new ice age. So average temperatures are getting warmer now - that's "settled science". What's not settled is the cause, and how much of it is man-made versus things like increased sun spot activity. Let the rational logic of science and the scientific method do its thing so we can find the answers.
I'd forgotten how awesome this is: jorts (likely), dad jeans waist, cell phone holster, smokes in the back pocket, T-Bow tat on arm, high and tight on top, mullet mane on the back, gator logoed accessory bag, #15 tat on face (hopefully temporary, but who knows). Too bad U of F doesn't bestow "superfan" status on this dude and make him the "face of the fan base" by providing free tix in prime spots. Naw - no respectable university would do that, would they?
Good stuff there AW!
I believe all of the taxes one pays to reside in CA combine to create the highest tax burden of any state, even higher than NY. If you don't mind that, you will love it there (I did when I lived there, but that was a while ago).
Rumor has it there's this big pipeline thingy emanating from somewhere up in Canada that might create some jobs in the US if it is allowed to follow Siri's directions to Louisiana, but it's just a rumor at this point.......
A good writer's job is to offend as many delicate sensibilities as possible. I commend your viewpoint, but just as there is no crying in baseball, perhaps there is no sentimentality in bodybuilding?
I bet I know where you spent your Saturday mornings Earle......
Rob Ford is my favorite Canadian politician. Any way we can swap out Beiber for him and let Ford preside over, say, I don't know, NYC?
DJ - great writing, and you appear to be under Rust Cohle's influence a bit (and that's OK). The Justin Carter kid from the Facebook link relates well to two things. One, maybe Rust is right and time is a flat circle that locks us into a cosmic pattern and pre-destines us to do the same shit over and over. Two, Canadians can really be sanctimonious dicks sometimes.
My cholesterol spiked 30 points just from looking at this picture.
Making Centerville proud - gonna have a break-out year!
