Speaking of perspective, the drink of the week is water.  Maybe some people need to substitute this before they open their idiotic mouths.

I cracked up at this.  I'd agree...but I need a beer to deal with the flaming hot takes I'm seeing.  My drink of the week is a tall boy of natty consumed in a dumpster of shame.

Solid advice on drinking.  Also: don't drive.  Three beers can be enough to cause trouble on the road (I unfortunately learned that lesson the hard way).  It's dumb and not worth it.  Uber. Lyft. Cab.  They exist to make your nights fun (or give you awkward rides to the airport).

On that note: SHOTS FOR THE BUCKS AT MY PLACE IN 15 MINUTES.  EVERYONE IS WELCOME.  EXCEPT NON-OHIO STATE FANS.  SO REALLY NOT THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE WELCOME.

Regarding the use of "Y'all":  I'm about as Yankee as they come and I refuse to ever use that word in a non-joking manner.  In my book it's on the same level as using the "M" during hate week.  As fellow members of the glorious union who sport pictures of General Sherman on t-shirts I urge you to do the same. 

It's my own bit of resistance to Southern Culture; my great-great-great grandfather lost his leg and nearly starved to death at Andersonville and I refuse to say "y'all".  Pretty much on the same level.

You hear "officially licensed" all over, including that one ad.  I get it, I really do.  But maaaaaaaaaaan those Chinese knock offs are nice and about 1/4 the price.  Just tough to compete against that.

TBH from my perspective I think watching youth soccer is a horrible place to try to learn to like it better.  I think you'd need to physically go to a game in Europe and see the insane atmospheres and athletic ability/technical skill of the best players.  But of course, some sports people just won't like, just like people hate football, baseball, basketball, hockey, etc. no matter what.

Comment 27 Jul 2016

Soccer is a great sport and whether the old haters like it or not it's actually gaining steam now that we can see the best teams/games from all over the world on television and the rest of the world cares about us [read: they realized they can make money off us] (unlike in the 1970s/80s).  It's kind of amazing to me that in this entire comment section I've only seen one or two of the tired old comments about low scoring and fake injuries where maybe 10 years ago that's what the whole comments section would be.  I used to get salty, but now I find them amusing and am ok with the fact that people don't have to like the things I like.

Fear not my friend, soon soccer jokes will be as irrelevant to you as someone saying they don't like football because "it stops too much" or baseball because "It takes too long."

It's always interesting to read the old hot takes regarding Ohio State Football.  When I was a freshman I did a project on the Stadium campaign in the late 1910s, early 1920s and in that process learned/read the following:

  • That people considered Ohio State to be "that little college in the cornfield."
  • That people were convinced the planned Ohio Stadium was about 2x the size it should be and, to some, the idea of 80,000 people (I believe that was the original capacity) filling the stadium was nonsense and not realistic.
  • Alumni from before 1890 thought "the foot ball" was stupid.
  • That people would show up to games without a ticket and one of the driving events for the stadium was a time where 40,000 people showed up at Ohio Field (capacity 20,000).

Makes me want to go back to the archives to research again.

This.  I remember hearing an NFL player (I think it was either AJ Hawk or Bobby Carpenter) talking about how some trainers will tell players to smoke marijuana instead because of precisely this...well smoke when they know they won't be tested.

I've been reading these for about two years and I can confidently proclaim that they are getting weirder and weirder.

Are we sure DJ is ok? Did he write one hundred of these SS's during an epic acid trip and then later fill in the details? Or has he been taken over by a cyborg that has created an algorithm that can mimic the style of DJ, e.g., a "Four Loko" reference here, a humorous misspelling there and capped off with some faux humility in order to let the guard of the readers down?
