  • 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 see TTUN losing at Utah, I didn't realize the altitude is at 4652ft, it will be fairly to pretty hot, they will get gassed.    I think a win for TTUN at Utah would actually be impressive.

Sparty will field a very good team again this year, Cook is a very good QB.  Agreed with Oyster, Dantanio will have the bulletin board material he'll need to motivate his team.   But, I think Harbaugh has the ability to pull a win they are underdogs in; somebody-Not-Named-Ohio-State.

This is one of the funniest things ever in a movie.  Mel Brooks credited it to Richard Pryor, who should have been Sheriff but had problems then so Brooks moved onto  Clevon Little (not a bad choice as it turned out.) Mel said Pryor wrote every line for Mongo and a few for Mongo that were hilarious but they decided "no" or had to edit them out.

I gaffed at "Oh , that poor man! Some here save him!"

@ cins, it wouldn't be appropriate for a thread here, but there is a GENERATION of young adults who are so media driven, they aren't holding hands, gazing into each others eyes, etc.  I went to Florida last year and yakked with my best friends, 2 of whom employ these kids.  It's absolutely alarming the way these kids interact.  They have this weird idea of they should be expected for "perfect sex/whutever" from the internet and are afraid (mostly males) to even approach a person.   They are scared, other Moms I know agree what the expectations on both boys and girls are now, oh, my, god.

Should have said up front how saddening it is to lose a child to addiction.  My prayers and thoughts are for you.  It's horrible.  I wouldn't blame you for cutting them off from your family until whatever happens one way or the other.  A parents nightmare.

At risk of being put in 11W jail, but there is a reason Idaho has one of the lowest home burglary rates in the country. I honestly don't know anyone who doesn't own a gun here.  Homicide rates are low here too. Most women know how to shoot too. The biggest Moose brought down last year was hunted by a female.  Careful, dudes!

or a porn with Judge Judy

This just made my day, that was hilarious.  Good job!

Comment 23 May 2015

Thanks for the info.  I'm very sorry to hear your kids have a drug problem.   I hope they come around/get help.  Seriously.

I can't keep mine off the internet,  which believe me is an addiction. (She says, while on 11W a lot, but I do work out 5-6x a week and I have a life) The physical ramifications obviously aren't as severe but they used to be really buff/in shape and they are now both overweight.  My very, very social 18 yr old will go out with friends then come home at 10:30pm JUST SO he can get on his computer and yak with the friends he just left.   My husband and I are puzzled beyond belief.  These people will text someone in the same room.  When I was their age(s) my Mother never saw me, I was constantly out & about.  I don't know what to do, it's their friends and they are like that too.

As I type this on the internet forum, God damn this for my kids.  My youngest's best friend has a mom who is a doctor and she is just like me: what to do when they are in college and you just have to let them "be".

Sign me,

@John what kept me off anything except in high school and college (some pot, booze) was seeing best friends get in wayyyy over their heads in a short span with name it: pills, cocaine, etc.   I once tried speed (1984) and after being up all night and having to go to work the next day and thought I was going to have a heart attack, I couldn't imagine anybody wanting to ever do that again.   I was a train wreck for 24 hrs.  But, I'm someone who thinks taking aspirin is a rare thing.  It's just me. Our culture is the "pill for the ill" and I wasn't raised that way.

@Cin, call me a geezer,but I don't know what Sherm/ Wet sticks are.  Can you tell me? I have 20+ yr old sons and I'd like to keep up on WTF is going on out there.

Comment 22 May 2015

Meth is the big drug out here.  I'm always astounded at how many 40+ year olds are arrested for production or use of it.

Comment 22 May 2015

Hart would have to also be the most hated wolverine in East Lansing as well as the author of the "Little Brother" meme.  He was arrogant about several things.

Comment 20 May 2015

buckeyeneer, forgot about "You come back here..." that was funny,   Thanks for the link.

Comment 20 May 2015

Hey LSU AD: Check out this link.

I don't think it's an "us" problem (meaning Div 1) I think it's a YOU problem.

EDIT: And in the graph on the link, note that almost all the purple dots that are higher than the scarlet ones are pre-1910.  So, their percentages are skewed...wait, now who does this remind me of?   Maybe their coach would know who?

Comment 20 May 2015

I'm the Bearded Lady probably in the wrong thread here.  Do legs count? 

Comment 20 May 2015

Gotta be honest, I love Aretha and Grace, but never liked Janis.    Yes, we can agree to disagree.  What do you think of Skyline chili...just kidding!

Comment 20 May 2015

Janis Joplin?  I understand she was popular but her voice sounded as good as Dylan and Neil Young.  Not somebody to study from.

Comment 19 May 2015

There are a couple of gas stations here that from October - March offer full service during the daytime.  So if you're elderly or wimpy about the weather you can stay in your car.   It's dumb that in Oregon you have to wait for an attendant, especially if you need to gas in some poe-dunk town and have to wait on bubba which happened to us this summer.  They are no more qualified than I am to pump gas, it's stupid.

They are like 2nd cousins of mine.  My brothers Jim & John would be a little younger than you it sounds and went to Corpus all 8 yrs.  My brothers (2 of the 4) live in Canal Winchester as does my 86 yr old mother.    I don't get back to Ohio  very often anymore.  Lots of people moved out of the south end for Pickerington when I was a kid.  270 was new then.  Imagine that!
