"But recently she's become sort of an asshole"

Literally the funniest thing ive read all day.  I say get an SUV.

EDIT:
Probably don't get your parenting/family advice from an online football forum, but i'm 21 and don't have a family so what do I know.

No that's all his own Twitter. kind of weird he would post a video of him flexing and then a Terrell Owens backyard combine video while referring to himself as a future "Dragon slayer" in third person... Edit: Upon further review I think that's his brother. Significantly less weird now. LOOK OUT UAB Y'ALL ARE ABOUT TO HAVE A DRAGON SLAYER ON YOUR HANDS

Good for you.
To add on to your notion of "just go and do it", I was at an event on campus last year where a professor of psychology was speaking.  He specialized in habits.  He said good habits are much harder to create and easier to break than good habits(obviously).  But the one thing he said that stuck out to me was basically, if you have a plan to go to the gym, which is a good habit, and your friends ask you to go out and do something instead, if you say yes and go with them, you are weakening your habits because subconciously you are setting the minimum standard for what it takes to break your habit.  So say like 2 days later you planned on going to the gym, you are more likely to not go because you have set a standard for not going so if your friends call again you are MUCH more likely to go out with them again AND you are more likely to allow "lesser" temptations to impede your good habit, TV, being tired, just not wanting to.
Long story short just go do it and if you ever think that you don't want to go remember that if you don't you will be making it much more likely that you won't go in the future and you could break your good habit.

Born in Cincy, currently at OSU.   I like soccer more than NFL, baseball or basketball, so I rank the Crew 2nd because of my interest in the sport rather than my loyalty to one city over the other.

1. Ohio State Football

2. Columbus Crew

3. Cincinnati Bengals

4. Cincinnati Bearcats Basketball

5. Cincinnati Reds

6. Ohio State Buckeyes Basketball

I hate UC football

People who dog Skyline without trying it(most of you) need to chill.

Weird... seems like a lot of people in this thread consider using propane

Any color of gatorade works, i just think the Cool Blue is easiest on the stomach

Comment 14 Jun 2015

Bananas and blue gatorade.  If you have one banana and half a gatorade before you go to bed, and another banana and the rest of the gatorade when you wake up you will be 100% in the clear.

You might still throw up, but you won't have the headache, which i think is the worst part.

I promise it's not and I promise I won't be one of the snarky jack asses that jumps down people's throats and only posts gifs as responses if you say something I don't like. I am genuinely interested to know if are people who are bigger fans of a team other than the football team?
Comment 10 Jun 2015
I was always an OSU football fan, where as I wasn't concerned with the other sports until I became a student and it was a point of pride that the women's rowing or the pistol team wins a title. That being said they really aren't something that I pay attention to until that happens. Obviously basketball, hockey, soccer and baseball get a little more attention for me but the passion I have for the football team isn't their for the other teams, but I am loyal to them as I am loyal to the university

Arturo Vidal is going to get a second yellow if they don't cool him off during half time. He's been charging around like a mad man
Comment 05 Jun 2015
Definitely soccer. Messi and Ronaldo make insane money right now and their sport isn't as dangerous as many other sports are. Also I think soccer would be the most fun to be super good at, the way you could move the ball around and make other people look like idiots while you weave a silk carpet to the goal.

A QB has won like the last 10, I don't see that changing this year; although if a running back is going to win it anytime soon it might as well be Zeke

Comment 30 May 2015

In addition to what Fun Zone said soccer is one of the fastest growing sports in America among young people.  A lot of people, myself included didn't play soccer growing up but as of recently are very interested in the sport. Whether you like it or not soccer is here to stay and its only going to get bigger.


As a result of the growth in the sport the United States wants to be able to hold more influence in FIFA.  The current regime that runs FIFA has very tight relations with developing nations in Africa and Asia, as a result of the World Cup in South Africa and FIFA's programs to develop the sport in those countries.  The relationships between the FIFA executives and these countries are often based in monetary corruption.

Russia being awarded the 2018 World Cup also raises some flags considering, they have rampant racism, legislation agianst homsexuality, occupied Ukraine, arrested Greenpeace protestors, have state run media, caused environmental damage from the Socchi Olympics, imprisioned Pussy Riot and literally just passed a law that allows political dissidents who are considered to be "undesirable" to be arrested.  A little suspicious that FIFA would decide to award the World Cup to one most oppressive 2nd world countries .

To be cynical about it, its easier for the US to blow the lid off of all the corruption and knock off the powers that be, than it is to bribe its way into having a say in FIFA.  The FIFA clash between Europe+US+Canada(NATO) and Russia+Asia+Africa (developing nations) has serious political undertones, its a theme thats just starting to emerge but its one that will dominate global politics going forward.

In short its very important becuase there are human rights violations everywhere, illegal money changing hands, and there are bigger things than soccer at play.

Also its bizzare to me how much people get pissed off about other people liking soccer.   It really is a beautiful game, and if you like sports I see no reason why you wouldn't like soccer if you gave it a chance.  I think it is more exciting to watch than baseball...  No no, you don't have to come off the porch.  I'll see myself off your lawn.

"Those four points break down as such: 1) the added weight affects the structural integrity of the helmets during "impact certification tests;" 2) the added weight of the masks shifts the head's center of gravity forward, which could fatigue the neck and result in a head-down posture during tackling; 3) the smaller spaces in the mask increase the risk of another player's finger getting caught between the wires, potentially resulting in serious injury; 4) and the additional material "may negatively affect a player's behavior during contact and tackling due to an added false sense of security."

I assume the NCAA used the same logic.  The first two points are absolutely ridiculous.  For point 3, maybe but you would have to have some small fingers, and we aren't supposed to be sticking our fingers in between the wires anyways are we? For point 4, yeah I guess, not very convincing language though (may negatively affect)

At the end of the day the NCAA and the NFL are dumb
