So the penalties were appropriate -- they just didn't call them by the right name.

I can live with that.  Gamble was held in the Fiesta Bowl, after all.

Maybe that's why I wasn't plugged in to the rule.  I don't watch a lot of football on Sundays ...

Kid is 23 in AA, behind a 22-year-old Jose Ramirez and a 21-year-old Lindor.  It's not like there's a crying need for shortstops in Cleveland.  It's a salary dump.  Lame.

This is a time commitment, but I'll make it.  I love me some TMBG.  (This notwithstanding I got in a Twitter fight with them earlier this year, because I couldn't take my kids to their last Boston show -- who knew they were a 14+ act?)

Yeah, that's the thing.  The service plan we bought on our refrigerator is a joke.  We have one option for an authorized repairman, he apparently covers the Eastern Seaboard, b/c he's booked through Armageddon, and when he does show up he thinks the temperature readout is an error message code:

"That blinking 7.  That's the error code.  Yeah -- that's it!"  [consults manual]

Wife pushes a button, toggles the temp reading to Fahrenheit, blinking 7 changes to blinking 42.  "Yeah, well, what does error code 42 mean?"

It's laughable.  But TVs are their core product.  I would think they're trying harder to get them right.  Makes it harder to pull the trigger, though.

Not sure what I like more about your post, BuckeyeSean:

(1) The helpful information and suggestions throughout, or

(2) "most others should by Jan 1, 2016 at the latest... not helpful for most of buckeye season."

Emphasis added, Brother.  Emphasis added.

C'mon, Quantcast: you got the colors all wrong on that line graph.

I think it's really important to get on here and start lecturing people who are having their hearts slowly dismantled over a seven-day period.  NOW IS THE TIME TO RIDE THE HIGH HORSE!

EXACTLY.  5 years as a coordinator and now he's a position coach.  Speaks to experience, yes, but also failure.

Thing about Curtis is, would Closer have been the album it was if he hadn't been living on a knife's edge?  I would never sacrifice someone's life for better art -- especially the father of a baby girl -- but JD wouldn't be what they are if Ian had been okay.

On the other hand, OP's invite is who we'd call back from the dead, and not who wouldn't have died in the first place.  A zombie Ian Curtis fronting post punk's greatest band?  HELL YES, I'm buying that ticket.
