They just opened a Sport Clips near my house, so I gave it a shot. The hot towel/massage/shampoo was free with the first cut. The little blonde chick talked me into giving it a try. It was thoroughly refreshing, but I also felt like I had cheated on my wife. I'm fairly certain the girl had been "coached up" on how to gain loyal, repeat customers lol
Born in Ohio but moved out of state at a young age. My mom's side of the family are still in Ohio. My earliest memories of watching college football were Spielman, Byars, and Carter. No matter where my family moved to, my loyalty stayed with the Buckeyes.
Mike Leach. I think it would be awesome to spend one day with him.
I belong to another football related website that uses upvote/downvote to rate posts. A really cool feature is that on that website, you can click on the UV/DV tally and it shows each individual that voted and what their vote was. When they began using that feature, the UV/DV culture improved significantly.
The food is a major factor for me. The first two places I hit when I get into the city are Central BBQ and Gus's. Broadway is great, but for me, Beale beats Broadway simply because I like the blues better than country music. I've enjoyed Nashville each time I've visited. Memphis is just a little more of my flavor.
Just once, I would love to have Jameis Winston hooked up to a polygraph.
They nailed the ranking for West Lafayette. When the Buckeyes are playing somewhere close, me and the wife always go to the game and stay overnight as a mini-vacation. Bloomington is a quaint, enjoyable college town to stay in. Evanston is a trip to Chicago, so there's the amenities of the city. Champaign is just ok. West Lafayette FREAKING BLOWS!!!
I'll take Memphis EVERY SINGLE DAY! Every time I cross the river I can feel Memphis in my soul. Some cities are just like that.
I don't get it. I know, it's not my site, I don't need to get it. He's talking about football though, something we hold sacred. Some of us even make our living off of the sport. Relevant much more than some political stance.
Edit: There is a better time and place for this discussion. My bad.
Why? It isn't remotely political. Obama took took a position regarding the game of football. It clearly wasn't supporting the sport that drives your website. I don't get the problem here.
Edit: After some thought, probably not the place to have this conversation. It becomes too easy to turn political.
Thanks for the replies! I've been trying to find information about the if/when the band is playing, but I haven't had any luck.
This buckshot made me "hon hon hon hon".
1991, and I can't remember who said it for the first time, but me and my buddies were doing the "bow-chicka-wow-wow" after anything that anybody said that could have possibly had a sexual connotation. We were in middle school, and we could've found something dirty about you saying "the". We had terribly dirty minds.
I once heard a guy say "I'll bet that girl has a bush that'll knock your aunt Connie's socks off!" Never heard something like that before or since.
1. People who disregard the "15 items or less" requirement for using the express checkout lane.
2. People who think I want to listen to their commentary when I attend a football game. (Like the guy sitting behind me in the Shoe at the 2012 Cal game. He and his buddy had an astute discussion on why the spread offense was dead and the way of the future was a pro-style offense like Alabama runs)
My dog scares herself when she farts. Some farts are audible and others are silent. Either way, every single time, she bolts up and chases her tail with a startled look on her face. Gets me every time.
Or parts of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York.......
I played Quarterback on the offensive side of the ball. I chose 12 because I was a huge fan of Randall Cunningham.
Memphis, TN for a quick weekend get away. Great food, music, and history. Beale Street is mucho fun. Really enjoy that city.
St. Augustine, FL for an extended trip. Nice beach and loads of history.
Yes. More specifically, farting on an elevator, for me, is the king of the fart humor genre.
I'm a high school teacher and football coach. I teach Advanced Physical Conditioning.
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.
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.
