"Yeah, of course we're rivals... *sotto voce* heh, dumbass..."
Tampa Bay could use him as a complement to Mike Evans and eventual replacement for Vincent Jackson, but I don't see him dropping to #34 overall.
My wife tells me that I'm a legend in my own mind. Does that count?
Gary Anderson - the running back, not the kicker - was at my junior high school in Tampa during awards night for the football team, and I got to shake his hand.
Rode in an elevator with Patrick Stewart at the Venetian in Vegas the day before my wedding. Same trip, passed Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie at Mandalay Bay - and surprisingly caught nothing life-threatening.
Jordan Ritter (one of the minds behind Napster) was a high school classmate of mine. We had Calc I together during senior year.
BYU and Boise State would make more sense just in terms of the western presence that the Big XII all but lost when Colorado defected to the Pac-12. The only other alternative, as mentioned before, would be to add more Texas schools, but regardless, you're looking at massive poaching of the AAC no matter which way you go.
With Da U's attendance, they could probably rent a small high school field for home games. They certainly don't belong in an NFL stadium.
In no particular order:
- Baylor: We blow their doors off, and it isn't even close.
- TCU: Closer game, but rattle Boykin, and they're toast.
- Alabama: Humiliate them worse this time.
- Florida: Kick their damn teeth down their throats.
- Southern Cal: Pretentious bastards need to be brought down several notches.
- Notre Dame: See Southern Cal.
- Cincinnati: I'd love to see them get so close to respectability only to have them blown off the field by halftime.
- TTUN: Beating them twice in a season would be a hell of a welcome for ol' Jimmy.
As someone who used to work on lottery machines, I can tell you that people love abandoned tickets. People would rather scoop up tickets that were left by others (asked for the ticket then realized they had no cash on them, etc.) than get one out of the machine. They are considered "luckier" than normal tickets. Of course, the people who truly believe that are the same ones who kept pestering me to put the winning numbers in the machine, and were dead serious about it.
If I could upvote this a thousand times, I would. How does this help average people with modest incomes take in the NFL experience (tm)?
Weird Al Yankovic. If you've never been to one of his concerts, I highly recommend it.
George Carlin, always.
Also, I don't know if you've ever heard of Mark Klein, but when he did stand-up back in the 90s, he was hilarious. I'm talking laugh-till-you-nearly-pass-out funny. He does mostly corporate events now.
*tries to find Legalese-English dictionary*
Oh, yes, that breaks no federal laws, SEC regulations or FINRA rules of which I am aware! :-)
One of my wife's favorite quotes of all time.
(hint hint my boss is a mouse)
It's that bastard, Chuck E. Cheese, isn't it???
I work for a brokerage firm in corporate actions (tenders, mergers, dividends, interest, etc.). And no, before you ask, I am neither sufficiently licensed nor otherwise authorized to give investment advice.
I'd be more accepting of Amir if he would have just pulled a WWE-style heel turn in his sophomore year (or sooner), instead of letting this drag out. Just hit Thad in the head with a steel chair, tear off your jersey to reveal sun and blue, and go transfer. This is the Chinese water torture of basketball ineptitude.
They're attacking this day with douchebaggery unknown to mankind.
I've always had a soft spot for Jay Burson. That dude could flat-out play. He's on that team, even if it is a reserve role.
Well, not many people would have wanted to be part of the dumpster fire that was that program, so I can't say I blame him for turning it down, regardless of his age/collegiate coaching chops. Also have to give credit to PSU for sheer chutzpah. Never really liked Parcells, though, and never had much respect for him after he backed out of the Buccaneers' head coaching gig several years ago.
