I hope not.

I hope they win two more games and I buy an away jersey with the "diamond" Nike/CFP swoosh and never, ever STFU about it (overspending on the jersey and the wins obv), and - possibly - legally ordain that I be buried in said glorious jersey.

Go Bucks!

I'm getting old enough to yell out the screen door at the degenerates on MY LAWN, so #5 was fantastic. Gracias.

Only thing(s) to add: Jesse Palmer and David Pollack.

Toss out talk of bias, they're hacks who parrot pretty obvious "observations" that are platitudes and/or jargon. Ex: The pass was caught and went for a TD and was super awesome because "the quarterback dropped it down the chimney!" Sweet. I saw that and got that. Can you make your brain make your mouth make words into your microphone that actually explain or - ideally - elevate the analysis?

I married the right woman and into the right family. This Simpsons quote is on the Mt. Rushmore of Simpsons quotes.

I like Lou Holtz. I like Joey Bosa. And I can get past anyone expressing an opinion about anyone that does not cross the line of decency.

This did not cross that line. Perhaps petulant, but not indecent.

To each his own. Move on.

Not today. Had a very hammy Christmas Eve feast. I miss ham already...

Read or post what you want. Vote up or down how you want. Others will do the same and you can learn what works and what doesn't.

Move on. Enjoy life.

Will he or won't he make use of the red Sharpie? And then does he blink before considering the >$8 million per year offer from the AA Old Guard?

Comment 21 Dec 2014

"The guy who Colts fans have to think about for a while and then remember that he was just such a 'gritty' QB that was on the team right before they drafted Peyton Manning and everyone pretty much dropped Jim Harbaugh from... Wait - what was the question again?"

4 of 10 for me too.

I'm not as concerned with the poor score as I am about how the sponsorships got in my brain in the first place.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I knew about the Military Bowl as an expat here in D.C. For the others, I'm hoping it was the absurdity/randomness that my brain zeroed in on (San Diego County Credit Union, New Era, Auto Zone).

I'll root for the Buckeyes forever, but prefer a gauntlet where they beat (read: punch in the mouth) the best teams they face throughout the season. All games and every game.

Especially The Game. The rolling of the clunkers out of Ann Arbor of late  has been fantastic, but I'd rather take a loss here and there if I can see a 2006-ish tilt now and then.

Yes. Beat Michigan every time. Crush them if possible.

But I'd rather have The Game be the game that matters rather than build up WIsky or MSU or some once-every-five-year-program with a novel offense/player being featured.

This is kind of meta, but I can't hate the guy who gave us "skrong" to hate on the guy.


Comment 19 Dec 2014

Well said - just going to roll with this.

Every time I start trying to envision, I'm reminded of how I so totally and unequivocally saw 59-0 coming.

But seriously - these all tie for 1 and/or 5:

  • Let It Be - the Beatles
  • Sympathy for the Devil - the Rolling Stones
  • Hey Hey What Can I Do? - Led Zeppelin
  • Ultraviolet (Light My Way) - U2
