I'm with the OP - if I'm ranting it's generally either to myself or to the TV in an empty room - no one wants to sit with someone that just complains for an entire game.
In a week where #1 won by 7, #2 by 3 and numbers #3, 6, 7 and 8 all lost it's hard to disagree with this poll - it's obvious that no one has really stood out thus far. TCU has played okay, but they barely beat a Minnesota team that just got shut out by Northwestern. Baylor can put up points, but can't play any defense.
As an aside I wonder how much longer before Houston gets in the top 25 - it's nice to see Herman succeeding so quickly down there.
Well said - it's the anonymity of these message boards / tweets / live chats that let people think they can be awful human beings without any repercussions. That's why I avoid most message boards (other than here of course) and Twitter. It's easier for me though because I'm not in the public spotlight like these kids are - it's awful what they have to endure now on a weekly basis, and honestly make me scared what the future holds when my yet to be born daughter will reach that age.
All that being said, I keep trying to remind myself that these people are the minority, and (I hope at least) for every awful human being there are another 10 that would call these losers out.
I suggest you avoid the live chat then as well - it's ugly.
Whoa, that's a bit of a rash judgement. They haven't played as good as they did at the end of last season, but so far no one has. Team will continue to get better.
The thing is though - if the winning slows down then those little idiosyncrasies start to become a lot more annoying.
That's why most families limit seeing the crazy/embarrassing uncle to holidays and weddings.
Is that why the Domino's stock did so well after Brandon left to be AD?
Fixed the post as well to include:
And wash it down while a whole 'lotta milk:
We have a lab / pit bull mix that was a rescue from Mississippi. She's the perfect energy level for my wife and I - can play when you want to and if we leave her alone can sleep all day long.
I never had a dog growing up as a kid, and now that I have her for a little more than 3 years I can't imagine ever not having one. It's just awesome to have someone greet you at the door every single time you come home with so much enthusiasm and happiness - it can make any bad day at work go away.
I like them - though not sure why they made the design on the t-shirt different. Would have been nice to have the red number on the black tee.
When I read a post like this that can't seem to enjoy change every once and a while (temporary change at that), this is what I think of:
I could have used some of this rain as well in August in Connecticut - bone dry for almost the entire month. Killed my lawn and all my plants...granted not nearly as bad as the drought in California!
I guess it could always be worse:
Work for an agricultural company and we have a meteorologist on staff - he lowered the chance that it hits land in the Northeast to 30% this morning, but still believes it would move over land in the Mid-Atlantic and could cause some major flooding between Saturday and Sunday (believe it's already causing flooding in the Carolinas, and that's only with the outer edges of the storm hitting those areas).
His original assessment was that this could be just as bad as Sandy, which if anyone else suffered through was pretty terrible. I got lucky with no damage to my home, but lost power for 6 days.
For now anyone on the East Coast I would keep a close eye on this in case it shifts further west/inland, but hope that it continues to push east out to sea and doesn't cause much damage.
I really hope he's found soon. I couldn't imagine losing my dog, let alone someone breaking into my property to steal her. A similar thing happened to my wife's best friend - someone took her husky mix - and a year later it's still hard for her to talk about it. There are some really terrible people in the world, but as evidenced by this board most people are good and want to help...
No question, I completely agree. IMO Miracle Whip isn't even really mayo.
Well done - wins are great (and will continue to come), but this is what makes me really proud to be a fan of this team.
I thought the play calling improved dramatically in the WMU game - while execution wasn't perfect we had the chance to put up a lot of points and the defense held on against a team that was pretty good at moving the ball. Compared to last year I think this team is a lot better at this point in the year, with fewer question marks and less to work on.
I think this is a playoff team, and they'll continue to get better, win games, and prove to everyone why they were ranked the #1 team before the season started.
I'm less than 2 months away from my wife having our first - a girl. Excited and nervous at the same time, as I'm sure you've felt as well.
Congratulations on making it 6 months!
Oh, and I want one of those blankets - do you think my wife would mind if I detour to Columbus from Connecticut on the way to the hospital??
