Well considering Apple has the cash on hand to buy Disney about 5 times over, imma go with nah dawg

Comment 19 May 2017

Man the "He actually is a terrible prospect, we didn't want him anyways" talk starting real early on this one.  Once again, if Coach Meyer and Coach Davis want him, then I want him.  If not, I don't want him.

I think the best is probably last years Game.  The whole family came to visit down here in Dallas, and we watched at their rental house.  When we won I think that was one of our greatest celebrations.  

Side note, my 5 year old brother was laying next to my feet and when i jumped up on the Samuel touchdown, I stepped on his hand and when it startled me, I kicked him in the face.  I have never felt so bad about something in my life.

So I'm not at all familiar with how APR is scored, why are we 9th?  Are we impacted by the amount of transfers and players who leave for the draft? I could see that hurting us in comparison to all 8 teams listed ahead of us (teams which typically have few to no players leave early, due to not having a whole lot of game breaking, leave school early kinds of talent) with the exception of occasionally scUM.

Elder of The Universe, like the Collector from the first Guardians of the Galaxy.  That said, Ego is also an Elder of the Universe in the comics, but is a Celestial in the movie, so who knows.

$1.6 million in the bank before you're 22 is a hell of a head start even if that is all he gets.  He can use that to go back, finish his degree, and get a career for the next 30 years with no student loans and hell of a lot of cash to start out with. He's just gotta play it smart and he can be set for life based off those two years.

Community makes some great beer.

Comment 02 May 2017

Really I have a favorite team from each of the major conferences, which all take a 1000 mile backseat to the Buckeyes, for varying reasons:

ACC - Florida State, I loved the colors growing up and the Seminole War Chant was rad as hell.

SEC - UGA, we lived in Athens when my dad was in the Navy, and "Hunker down Dawgs" was my first exposure to anything non Ohio State

Pac-12 - Arizona State, my grandparents live out in Phoenix and I visited ASU twice in high school and really thought about going there.

Big XII - University of Texas, living down here in Texas I've made friends with a lot of UT fans and alumni so I've been converted to at least actively cheering for them when I am at a Texas gameday party.  Also the Red River Shootout at the State Fair of Texas is the shit.

I spent the better part of Saturday night chugging Abita at a Jazz bar down here in Dallas, great brewery.

Comment 02 May 2017

Nope I haven't heard of it but looking it up it wasn't well reviewed.  My exposure to Shiner was limited to the Bock until a little over 3 years ago when one of my roommates at OSU (who was from Texas) brought back a sixer of the Light Blonde, and then 2 years ago when i moved down here to Texas I started trying any Shiner I could.

Comment 02 May 2017

Here in Dallas, Texas we have some pretty great breweries.  Braindead, Peticolas, Deep Ellum Brewing Company, but none of that beats good Ole Shiner. Bock, Oktoberfest, Light Blonde, Cold Brew Coffee Ale, Strawberry Ale, Prickly Pear, I have yet to try a Shiner and not enjoy it.

He is the all time leading sacker for one of the most successful franchises in the NFL when it comes to defensive front 7, despite not having been made a starter in the NFL until he was 28. I'm sure he has a few crumbs of knowledge to pass on to another guy.

Comment 28 Apr 2017

Pretty good with it, guy was pretty good in his one full year as a starter.  Hopefully under the tutelage of James Harrison, he can learn to be an absolute animal.

Comment 24 Apr 2017

I lived next door to Bosa and Zeke for the summer.  Really nice guys, super normal dudes who were just really damn good at football.  Living down here in Dallas, I've heard that Zeke has gone real superstar and just travels with his pack of bouncers and refuses to interact with fans.  Haven't seen him to verify that but would be sad if it were true for him to have made such a change in just a couple years.
