  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the OSU-UM game in 2006 after my oldest brother got offered extra tickets to the game from OSU "because we oversold Minnesota, want 2 more tickets to Michigan instead?". I flew back. I have 4 brothers, I had to sit with the traitor but we had a ball at Hineygate and the game. Best tailgating I ever saw; total party.

I don't know how many games they were predicted to win this year, but whatever it was they might want to +1 it.  He was a terrible coach and is a worse person.

I vote JT as starter.

1) Offensive line was turrible in VT game and massively improved by the Wisky game and beyond.

2) Wisky game, the defense shut down Melvin Gordon.  JT would have maybe hung 59+ on them too.

3) Leadership.  Cardale has it too, but I like JT's cool and his work ethic.

The altitude will mess with TTUN's defense.  They're not deep so substituting will be an issue and I can see them getting gassed after halftime.

Whoops , I left out the Popular Mechanics part.

The Bengals comments all echo my feelings pretty much.   The 2yr puppy one was hilarious.

I watched the debacle of that preseason game for about 1/2 of Q1 then turned it off.

John Oliver is absolutely correct, most of these owners are bilking the fans and don't give a damn.  Brown family are poster child for this.

It's 4:12am here in Idaho...gittin' my shovel out fer some taters!

He's the local coach here and I love him.  Says exactly what he's thinking.  Have to love a guy who has signed things with "CJK5H" after the signature.

Funniest thing I've heard lately from him was they asked him about Harbaugh being the messiah for TTUN and he said "well, he better hope it doesn't end the same way".

Dang it, Ytown beat me to this.  And congrats on advancing to third grade 11W!   You get to use ink pens and markers instead of those crayons now.

The Caprisun is the worst thing out of the 3 easily.  There are 3 yr olds in soccer who think caprisun is skimpy on servings, thus Urban's joke about finishing the whole thing. 

Skittles actually have a fair amount of vitamin C and as citric acid is what makes them sour, get the sour ones (my favorite).

To the dentist who was on here, my buddy who is a dentist says that popcorn has bought him an addition on his house...and he says nothing else comes close, but 2nd and 3rd in the money makers, are for older clients: chewing gum or a piece of meat (steak).

Believe it or not, I am a Smokey Bear (his name, not Smokey the Bear) expert.  Smokey was found as a cub,  they never found his mother after a forest fire in the mountains west of Roswell, NM.  They brought him in, charred paws and fur, and he was very people friendly so became the "spokeperson" of DON'T SET A FOREST FIRE YOU NOOB commercials.  He is buried where they found him, outside of Lincoln, NM and has a national monument.

Billy the Kid famously escaped from the Lincoln NM jail, killing the local deputy who BTW I had his grandson as my spanish teacher and he as everybody else in the area says....Pat Garrett was an asshole and Billy the Kid was very well liked and not the big outlaw as Garrett got rich reporting.  Watch the John Wayne movie, Chisholm, it is pretty factual (I could nit pick, but it's not bad).  The farm we owned was part of Chisholms ranch and I could see his farmhouse from my house, about 2 miles away.  I had senior-senior (not a typo) water rights because of John Chisholm which is as good as they come.  In New Mexico, they say you buy water rights, they'll throw in the land.  It's true.

I'm at 7K and I don't log on enough and never do gif-jifs but when I get to 9K I'm gonna beg for down votes.  Hell, I might be the reincarnation of Steensn or MMan.  All that to avoid cleaning, Yup, worth it. OMG especially after a Friday night with you clowns.

There are now due to a lightning but  little  rain storm, 57 fires in my local forests.  I feel for you and the firefighters.   Rain, God,, please!
