My 11-YO asked me if he can see this. I told him no before reading any of this. Guess that was the right call.
There was this one guy who lived a long time ago. I think his name was Solomon or something like that. Anyway, he was supposed to be really smart. I can't find the link to his blog, but I think he wrote something along that lines of "There is nothing new under the sun". I can't remember if he was actually talking about college football, but it seems appropriate here.
This Shawn Kemp:
Not this Shawn Kemp:
I like the idea. I also like the irony of creating a thread about not talking about Michigan. And the added irony of bumping a thread on Friday about not talking about Michigan on Friday.
It's a second degree ironceptiony.
My trip to Chichen Itza was the hottest I have ever been. We kept putting on sunscreen because we thought we were getting sunburned. Turned out it was just the heat of the sun on our skin that made it feel like it was burning. When we got there, we laughed at the people buying water from the vendors. After we had drunk all of ours, I would have paid just about any amount for a cold drink.
Too bad they won't let you climb El Castillo anymore.
You'll never take me alive, copper!
Yeah, that was me.
You know the scene at the end of Planet of the Apes when Charlton Heston's character finds the ruins of the Statue of Liberty?
This thread still makes me sad.
I'm not absolving him of responsibility. He definitely contributed to it, but as 7/10 said, the mob kind of piled on, and it just wasn't a very good look.
I found it curious that a group of members who have been criticized for commenting too much would attack another member for commenting too much.
So, yes, I thought it was uncalled for and unbecoming of a 12W. Maybe I'm missing something. Sure, he can be annoying at times, but the same could easily be said (and has been said) of our merry band of commenters.
No, I didn't participate in your little intervention. I told him not to go away mad, but that he may have contributed to the problem with his initial comment. If that was construed as being part of your ganging up on him, that was not my intent.
Don't you guys feel the least bit bad for running off the Chipmunk yesterday?
What's funny is that I didn't notice the typo until after I posted my comment. My surprise was at a Ramblings on Thursday, and by neither of the usual Ramblers.
Honestly, I have not been back. But I found their RC distributor, so I've been chillin' at home with Royal Crown.
Quarter's not over yet, Navy...
That is way too much Harbaugh.
Nah, he's convinced himself that it was his idea by now.
You're a solid 3/8 in my book, Navy.
Crap, now he's going to take credit for that, too. As if his head wasn't big enough already.
Most of Oyster's comments don't need editing. His thread titles, on the other hand...
Archie Bunker would last about 10 comments on 11W.
But what a glorious 10 comments it would be.
