All of my unemployed (wife has a great job), alcoholic friends calling me every half hour at work to "take a half day and join us for drinks--you work way to hard." I resent their happiness.
"This again" is the motto of the PSU faithful, wishfully forgetful. It's dismissive.
This is a debate. If you enter the ring, you can't be "better than the debate." It's just not possible when debating glassy-eyed cult members. They are defending their way of life, their incomes, diplomas, self-image. Paterno and his legacy are everything. They know, deep down, if they ever sober up, their entire lives were a lie.
Just another example of why I love this site! Lombardo has been a huge influence on my drumming. When I first started playing speed metal my guitarist gave me a copy of Reign In Blood and said "this is what we are looking for."
Happy bday Dave!
I live in Cbus but have spent a lot of time in quite a few cities for biz--Cleveburg and Motown being two of them. I have a theory about Clev and its citizenry. They are pissed that they ended up there. If you're from there and couldn't escape, you're pissed. If you were forced to move there for whatever reason, you're pissed. And these two groups are going to impose this disposition on any innocent bystander/visitor. They are in pain and need to share. I suppose I would feel the same way. In my many miles travelled, I only find this in Cleveburg. All my great friends from the Clev area have Andy Dufesne'd it and don't plan on returning.
Can we stop the Bear front? If I'm Foster, the Bear returns until we can prove to manage it. We couldn't last year, for myriad reasons mentioned above, but we couldn't make in-game adjustments last year even though we knew it was coming. VT's D looks to be just as good if not better. OL experience and Zeke mitigate some concern but besides Thomas, do we have anyone else to catch passes? Won't have that answer until Monday.
I hope our team is not as overconfident--fat and happy--as our fans. I see this game staying uncomfortably close in the first half. The closer the game remains, the crazier that stadium and opponent becomes. Maybe not a nail biter, but closer than we think: 27-17 good guys.
KMP nailed it. Rice does not belong on the committee because she is a political lightning rod--the way she wants it btw (sells more books, speaking engagements, etc.). Rice is a tiresome mouthpiece-grudge of "legacy" defense. I have always found her odious.
Still waiting to hear how she is qualified to sit on the committee. Many women (if gender inclusion was the committee's purpose) of much higher character in the sports world would have been better options.

Mr. Bungle: yes, the most diabolical, depraved, schizoid, gimp mask-wearing, preposterous musical "act" in the known universe.
but you already knew that.....
Kerry King, guitarist for Slayer, Phoenix airport on way to LA. I chatted with him before we boarded, nice guy. He was sitting behind me on flight. As we boarded I gave him the devil horns......he returned the gesture. EVIL.
I've met a ton of other "famous" peeps but how do you top Kerry King!!
From his Wiki: The Snake had three wives and three DUI's. There's a song.......
So sorry for your loss. We lost 4 cats in four years, oldest of which was 24. It's the toughest thing ever. Hang in there. You will always have memories of Ruby! And as hard as this is to hear, you did the responsible thing to end her suffering. She would've done the same for you if the roles were reversed.
We swore that we would never get another pet but recently moved on to our first dog. Got him as a puppy. Can't imagine losing him but it will happen. Maybe I will get lucky and go first!
I will try to put a team together. What's the drop-dead date for entry?
1972 Ford LTD Country Squire wagon. Shared with my brothers. It was a hand-me-down from my dad which was handed down from our grandfather. Believe it or not, we did not lose too many drag races in high school with this beast. No power steering, no power brakes. Blue, plastic interior. AM radio. If memory serves, no AC.
Kinghellvis just had a baby. Let's all congratulate him!
I'm the drummer is the greatest hardcore punk band of all time--THE PITBULLS. We chomp again 6/27 at the Tree Bar. If any of you pansies are into hardcore, show up and prepare to be shredded into little pieces.

that is all.
Bullet (as in silver). Call her Bull for short.
Well written Ramzy. That was tough to read and had to be even tougher to write.

This thread made me think of my first time in the Shoe. What an experience for a first-timer!
Too funny. The fan additions are priceless.
Saturday's bong hit: does it come before I put on my favorite buckeye shirt, after I set the DVR.....much confusion here. Please update timeline immediately.
Football legend or not, you never put your hands on someone else's kid. If the kid was in high school/college, it's a different story. If my kid was in peewee football and a grown man put his hands on him without my permission, are you kidding me? He'd have a serious problem.
