That's where I'm at on Coach Fickell. If Coach Fickell was the problem he wouldn't be employed at Ohio State.

Further when the D was struggling Coach Fickell was constantly saying things along the lines of the guys have to think to much, it's too complicated. The D got simpler, the D got better with less experienced players.

My favorite bit in Die Hard 2 is when McLane says to the Delta force guy, "And here I thought you were an asshole."

"I am an asshole. I'm just your kind of asshole."

Comment 21 May 2015

Or as Raylan would counsel, "If you met an asshole in the morning, you met an asshole. If you meet assholes all day long, you're the asshole."

He's going to start gaslighting her pretty hard I suspect and he's going to see if he can flip a switch in Sansa's little bird brain and bring out some Myranda. But Stannis will show up before Ramsay can get to bored and he can't really hurt her to much. The Boltons still need her to produce a child.

Comment 20 May 2015

Joffrey and Ramsay being essentially the same is a bit of an oversimplification isn't it?

Joffrey was just a spoiled little shit who because the rules more or less didn't apply to him didn't feel a need to bother with rules. There was no method to his madness. No aim to his cruelty except cruelty. And in most cases it was those around him performing the cruelty at his behest and under threat of the force others would bring to bear.

Ramsay on the other hand has a method. The cruelty while he enjoys it isn't the point in and of itself. "I win when you beg me to cut off your finger." He serves his father and seeks his approval. Ramsay handles his own affairs and the other tasks set to him. Ramsay has had to earn his keep.

Joffrey could not create Reek. Joffrey wouldn't have the patience.

Iron City (not Light) always makes me think of the first MLB games I went to as a little kid. I still like one with my Primanti Bros Pastrami sandwich.

Comment 19 May 2015

The obvious things to me would be that Theon earning his redemption, Brienne has a part to play only to find that keeping one vow (helping Sansa) leads to not being able to keep another (killing Stannis,) and Sansa finally gets how harsh and horrible the world is and how helpless she is in it and that she really needs to stop being stupid and get her act together.

Camping defeats one of the main purposes of having a job and a house.

Comment 19 May 2015

Seems the response that I had to this falls afoul of some site function.

On the one hand I'm blocked. On the other I'm not.

The ending was nearly as awful as I thought it might be. We got Tyrion and Jorah on the road. We got more Bronn which is always a good thing. Dorne should be a bit less of a mess now that everyone's in custody. Hall of Faces was cool.

If you usually enjoy the comic book hero stuff then certainly give Daredevil a go. Overuse of shaky cam in the folks standing around talking stuff but otherwise top notch.

Comment 18 May 2015

I have a pretty good idea about when we'll be seeing Drogon again. I'm just wondering if they'll save it for the season finale or if we'll get it sooner. It was effing epic in the book.

The Joker doesn't need "more edge" from stupid tats and a stereotypical thug grill. He's already past the edge. He's the effing Joker. That's the sort of thing that has to come from some Hollywood suit who thinks he's above the material. It is a very bad sign for the quality of this endeavor.

Comment 17 May 2015

She's very beautiful but the costuming I've seen for this version of Harley is far too "cheap trailer trash whore." She's an insane lover of The Joker in the usual way women fall for men with status. Cheap and trashy, at least until the New52 haven't really been much a part of it.

HBONow is Apple device only. Access to HBOGO comes with a subscription to HBO provided you do not have Comcast and wish to access HBOGO through the apps on PS systems. Works on a PC/Laptop and the list of cable providers who will authenticate your subscription so you can use the app on your PS system is as long as a man's arm but not Comcast. 

You can only subscribe for a like a month to HBO and Comcast does offer all the series from their crappy "On Demand" interface. (No conflict there. **** rolls-eyes **** ) You could subscribe for a month after season five ends and binge the whole fifty some hours.

Great points. I don't get the "slow" thing I've heard bandied about but then I've been hearing that about a lot of stuff and find it equally confusing. The patience that comes with middle age perhaps.

I can certainly see that folks might not get into it. Midway through the second season and it is a pretty dark tale. 

Comment 17 May 2015

Yep, watched the first season, read all of the books. It is a bit disappointing that the show has started to spoil the upcoming books but I'm still awaiting "Winds of Winter" eagerly.
