Lurker since 2011 before finally signing up for an account. I post rarely, but check the site several times a day even when football and basketball are in the offseason. (OhioState Compulsive Disorder?)

But DC's snow is the best of both worlds! It's hardly ever that bad, yet even an internet rumor that someone saw a snowflake gets you the day off.

Ah, so NOT "call me Sue" then. (Johnny Cash songs apparently aren't the answer to all of life's questions)

That could be a fun twist. Did that event ever get scheduled? Sorry to hear about your grandma Hove, but glad to hear you've got good memories. Maybe she's up there having a whiskey with my grandma.

Agreed. A man is only as good as his word. The money is one of several reasons why I do my gig, but if a former coworker could make a decent argument that I lacked honor or integrity, then I'd be just a boy with a few extra bucks in his wallet pretending to be a man.

Do you ever get to play euchre any more here in the WMA? It's been so long that my memory has gotten fuzzy on the rules (except that cheating is always fair game--in euchre--unless you get caught.)

So it's NOT photoshopped?  I've seen this photo several times and just assumed it was a photoshopped joke that I wasn't understanding.

Survivors: No, not the crappy "reality" show - the S on the end makes all the difference.  Synopsis: "Set in the present day, the series focuses on a group of ordinary people who survive the aftermath of a devastating viral pandemic – referred to as "European flu" – which kills most of the world's population [...] The series sees the characters struggling against terrible dangers in a world with no society, no police and no law, led by the de facto matriarch of the group, Abby Grant."

Hell On Wheels: A series about "the Union Pacific Railroad and its surveyors, laborers, prostitutes, mercenaries, and others who lived, worked and died in the mobile encampment called "Hell on Wheels" that followed the railhead west across the Great Plains. The story focuses on Cullen Bohannon, a former Confederate soldier (Anson Mount) who, while working as foreman and chief engineer on the railroad, initially attempts to track down the Union soldiers who murdered his wife and young son during the American Civil War."  The sometimes tense partnership between former slaveholder Bohannon and an emancipated slave played by Common is just one of many interesting dynamics in this.

For comedy series: Better Off Ted, Arrested Development, and Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Ah, I just realized why I was confused.  This must be counting FGs toward red zone efficiency.

I second that, Hamby.  I went to a game between two SEC teams in 2006 and while tailgating, one of my gracious hosts suggested it was one of the best college football atmospheres one could ever see.  I remember responding "Well, I went to Ohio State," and as I heard those words roll out of my mouth I thought, "Wow, I just sounded like a smug d-bag."  We all know how that season ended for us (thanks Urban), and of course, the superstitious nature of fandom has always made me feel that my hubris was to blame.

So while enjoying last night's victory and gearing up for another big challenge, let's try not to become the kind of fans that we hate from other teams.  Pride comes before a fall, after all.  'Bama got their turn last night, just like we did in the 2006 season.  Let's win the next game and then become magnanimous overlords.  (Because being magnanimous can be a troll move all its own, mwahaha ;)
