The only thing North Carolina should be in the running for is the death penalty for academic fraud.  But, wait, that would require some backbone by the powers that be

.. Former FIFA executive-turned-informant kept a $6,000-a-month apartment for his cats...

Jealous?

Then there was also this park:

So many great athletes look like fools trying to play golf.

so do many of us not-great (?) athletes.  And yes, there are pictures to prove it

QB, I hope, cause he is an amazing talent. I trust the coaches to make the choice that's best for the team and hope that there is no locker room drama from any of non-QB's. These 3 appear pretty cool about the whole thing.

That picture is just too damn scary.  True psycho eyes

Comment 22 May 2015

All I know is that I wish I had been the one to come up with the idea of bottling water for the masses (which I very rarely. use). That guy is rich beyond the dreams of avarice

should have made it a package deal - football and basketball

although SOS might drop if we add them as an OOC in football

Comment 20 May 2015

Mick should be afraid of breaking his hip and Keith needs to stay away from mirrors

Comment 19 May 2015

No love for the 1968 Buckeyes here?  Knocked off 2 number 1 (Purdue and USC), a #4 (scUM by 50-14!), and a #16 MSU.  Beat 2 Heisman contenders and winner (OJ and Leroy Keyes). Undefeated and Rose Bowl winner

I know that there are generational differences, but still not too shabby

Clem's Ringside. Not a bad burger

Ditto on the Clarmont.  Also fond of the Black Horse

Comment 18 May 2015

That 1969 will forever haunt me - that loss was possibly the worst ever (followed closely by the Rose Bowl against UCLA and the "Drive/Fumble")

I still hate those guys

Comment 17 May 2015

Not the greatest, but a long way from awful.  Next time in IMAX 3D

Comment 17 May 2015

sad about the pyramid - what does this guy have to ay about it?

Comment 16 May 2015

I don't think he was a real Southerner- first, no reference to WT Sherman and second, compared to what I've heard in the past, he mispronounced "moron"

Comment 15 May 2015

I find it hard to believe that John Elway was only mentioned a couple of times.  1 loss to him (in the shoe I think)and 2 AFC championships should seal the deal there.

Someone mentioned Steve Garvey, but I'd add most of the Dodgers during that period.

Other notable dislikes in addition to many, many listed above: Woods (just for emphasis), Johnny Miller (and not sure why), Isiah Thomas (really overrated imo), Bradshaw, & Jack Lambert (many, many Steelers could make the list)
