The Iron King, Cardale Jones, First of His Name, Poacher of Badgers, Controller of Tides, Slayer of Ducks, Troll Sultan, ...Rounder of Wagons?..., and 12th Son of Ohio

Admittedly probably too much Berman-ese for my liking...

Fax machines had their team time in this country, short as it was. Colleges, though, love to dust off these relics for National Signing Day.

I'm assuming you meant 'time' above.

I work in the mortgage industry, and the industry would crumble without the fax machine.  It's amazing to me that we haven't moved past this technology that is 25+ years old.

Though, as a kid in the mid-to-late eighties, I remember my mind being blown when my dad took me to - I think it was a bank - and paid to have a fax sent to someone.  The idea, at the time, that someone 1,000 miles away could be looking at/reading the same document we were holding in our hands in a matter of minutes rather than days via the mail was just...

Agree with the sentiment of this...

I've been (un)lucky enough to be in a position where I have had to hire people to work on a team I (thankfully) used to manage...(I quickly learned middle management is for suckers)...hiring the right people is really freaking difficult, at least it was in my experience and I would have to assume that extends to other professions too.  I've hired people who I've thought were slam dunk employees, and they later turned out to be giant a holes, and vice versa...you never know.

Then this comment made me think...holy crap, if they all go to college (I hope they do)...I'm going to have 3 in at the same time...

Stop it.

With a 3.5 year old, 10 month old, and one on the way...you're scaring me.

Happy to see coach Snyder come back for another year.  My old man was a K State alumni, so I have a soft spot in my heart for these guys.

Agree with you on Venables...I think K State's best option for possible replacements for coach Snyder (whenever he decides to hang up the headset) is a former K Stater - or someone with ties to Snyder.  The school caught lightning in a bottle with Snyder, as being someone who was willing to make a career of coaching in Manhattan, KS.  I don't know if they'll ever be able to replicate that again...the school/program might become a stepping stone for coaches wanting to move up, if not.

As he and three friends pushed through the crowd, a Buckeyes fan in his mid-30s pursued them with a picture to sign. When Elliott refused, the fan hopped on the hood and slipped the photo through the driver's window.

This crap annoys me to no end.

1. Autograph seeking is something for kids to do IMO.  A mid-30s fan following a college kid to get his autograph?  Time to grow up and put on your big boy pants.

2. I'm glad Elliott refused.  See number 1 above.

I used to live by Wrigley Field and would see grown men stalk the opposing players entrance to the park on game days and try to catch them for autographs as the players were walking from their cab/car and into the ball park.  I would think to myself, "This is what you, random 50 year old man, does with your time?"...and shake my head in disgust...as I walked to the 7Eleven to get a gatorade to nurse my hangover...

Ah, I miss my early 20s...
