I live in Seattle, and this is 100% correct. I even had one tell me that TAMU wasn't even the first to use it, then proceeded to tell me a story about a guy that came out of the stands, and stood on the sidelines in uniform waiting to play, and that was where the 12th Man came from. But it most definitely wasn't at TAMU. 

I was like, "uh..." 

And yes, they refer to themselves as "12s", the official slogan is "We are 12", and I think their highest selling jersey is the "12" jersey because, as one "fan" told me, "it's cheaper, and I don't have to waste money on a guy who's not going to be here that long anyway".

tl;dr Seahawk fans are the WORST.

So, for some reason, when I started playing this video, the WWE Network feed I had in another browser started playing. It's an old Attitude Era RAW. The audio was Michael Cole interviewing Sable, and he's talking about how Luna was going to "humiliate her, and strip her down to her bra and panties." This was happening as Zeke was slicing through the Oregon defense in sad black and white video. 

And I thought to myself, "man, this is the weirdest hype video I've ever seen."

What's the difference between "jail" and "banned"?

To go more recent, I'm gonna say Selfie. Yeah, yeah, I know, but that show got significantly better after its dreadful pilot, and was shaping up to be a solid show when it got cancelled. Thankfully, Hulu aired the rest of its run, it's worth checking out. 

And here is where I complain about ABC's run of torpedoing good-to-great shows with horrible names that turn off the audience:

Better off Ted, GCB, Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23, Cougar Town, Selfie, and Happy Endings, just to name a few. Thankfully, blackish and Fresh Off the Boat seem to be spared that fate.

I loved both Friday Night Lights and Chuck, but they both ran for five seasons. It's hard to say they were "cancelled way too soon", considering they both ran for two seasons longer than they probably should have. 

My vote would be for Happy Endings, but the stars may be aligning to get another season after it's way too short run, so I'll say Better Off Ted.

This is amazing. And there's a championship poster coming soon, too? LAWD.

Is there a link somewhere where I can download the entire season of posters? This was the only season I didn't get all of them, and picking back through the site was a bit of an exercise in frustration, last I tried.

I was a huge Flair mark when I was a kid, but he's just a sad shell of his former self now. I can't watch him.

Also, give me "Conspiracy Victim/Man of 1001 Holds" Chris Jericho over Y2J any day.

Oregon called a timeout with a minute and half against Michigan State up by 12. They then proceeded to score a touchdown on 4th and 2. They won 46-27. 

I'm surprised they forgot about that, since they spent the last week talking about how they were going to do the same to us.

My buddy wrote this, and obviously is a big Oregon fan. He's been on some reverse-jinx stuff for a while. I've been trying to reverse his reverse jinx, and now he's trying to reverse MY reverse jinx. I think by the time we're finished reverse jinxing each other, Bama is somehow going to win the game.

Blondie's in the Miracle Mile Shops is a Buckeye bar. I watched the Sugar Bowl there, it was 80% good guys. Do yourself a favor, and reserve a table. 


Also, Lagasse's Stadium at Venetian is amazing, though it's pricey, and they usually have pretty high drink minimums. But it's attached to the sports book, so you can at least place bets there.
