Yes. More specifically, farting on an elevator, for me, is the king of the fart humor genre.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

I'm a high school teacher and football coach. I teach Advanced Physical Conditioning.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

I'm not arguing the validity of your post GTH, I'm just adding what I see from a "boots on the ground" perspective. In the state where I reside, the decline in youth participation seems to be limited to the more affluent areas. I'm sure there is a good explanation for this. In most other areas, participation remains steady or even higher than normal.

I think it's Clear that with the recent media frenzy surrounding football and concussions, there will certainly be parents who keep their kids away from the sport. I also think it's a safe bet that the majority of parents understand how the media works. The data clearly shows that over several decades, the millions of football participants over all levels of football never suffer any long term health problems.

That might be the case where you live. I can only speak of what I see. I continue to see very high numbers in the three youth leagues I've been around in the last decade.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

No, it really isn't.

It is, however, becoming more important to support state of the art equipment, safer tackling technique, and more stringent enforcement of rules that protect players.

The pic would maybe cause me pain if it was taken while he was in the squat rack breaking parallel.....leg press somehow takes the edge off.

Seriously, how does anyone have the energy to care at this point? Best of luck to Mike with whatever he decides, sincerely. One player does not a team make....or recruiting class.

I was asked my celebrity crush for our student news broadcast today. My first answer was Britney Spears......which I promptly changed to Betty White when I remembered my wife also teaches in the building and would be seeing my answer!

Comment 28 Jan 2015

I'm about certain songs more than musicians

"The Story" Brandi Carlile, "Me and Tennessee" Tim McGraw and Gwyneth Paltrow, "Untouched" The Veronicas are three examples. I don't know why I like those songs, I just do.

I also really like Nickel Creek, but it embarrasses me to admit it for some reason.

Comment 28 Jan 2015

Me too......every time my daughters get in the car the station goes from Outlaw Country or Hip Hop Nation to Radio Disney. There are times the Radio Disney songs get stuck in my head for the rest of the morning lol

Comment 28 Jan 2015

Every time I make a pot of gumbo or jambalaya, I've got Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys cranked up in the kitchen. Love the entire genre.

Comment 27 Jan 2015

I've tried to watch, but I just can't get into the American version because I watched the original on BBC America years ago. I immediately fell in love with the British characters. I own the BBC series and I watch it a couple of times a year.

Fat boy need a 10 piece........huuuuggghhh

Comment 02 Jan 2015

None of you know who I am, so this can't be viewed as me bragging about myself. 

The high school team I coach won a state championship a few weeks back. I treasure so many memories on that day. The memory that is etched in my soul is turning away from the post game interview to see my little daughters sprinting towards me, picking them up in a hug, then hugging my crying wife after I put them down. I hadn't spent much meaningful time with them for weeks.

A coaches family is a special thing. They live and die, time after time, on third down every single game. They absorb all of the love and hate that comes from the stands, and they love their husband / daddy the same as they love my team. I am so very happy for Urban and his family today. Here's to the Meyers!

Comment 02 Jan 2015

Here's to leaving the ambrosia behind when the whistle blows and swallowing Silver Bullet Tallboys at game time! I know my tradition / superstition was a key factor for our defense on third down tonight. Yep, dem Silver Bullets are back.....

Comment 01 Jan 2015

Upland Brewing Company's Dragonfly IPA (local brewery in Bloomington, IN) and Maker's Mark Bourbon.

I'll also sprinkle in a couple of Silver Bullets during crucial situations for our defense tonight. Call it an old, stupid superstition.

I watched spring football down at GSU a couple of years in the early 2000's. Really enjoyed my stay in Statesboro. Cool area of Georgia.

Comment 30 Dec 2014

I fell asleep during half-time and just now woke up. It doesn't look like I missed much during my slumber!!
