Stravinsky,
When reading the following, please understand I am writing this in a non confrontational way. I am trying to help clarify some things. 

The very first rule for commenting is to not discuss politics or religion. With my friends I am a very sarcastic person in conversations, but on the boards sarcasm can be difficult to read.

When using sarcasm on the boards, please use italics in the sarcastic sentence or put ... at the end of the sarcastic sentence.

With that said, it is always a wise/safe choice not to write a comment (even if it is sarcastic) that touches on politics, religion, sexuality or any of the other topics listed in the commenting section.

Stravinsky,

Please follow the commenting policies.

DO NOT DISCUSS POLITICS OR RELIGION
Sorry, we just don't want any of that stuff around here and discussing one of those topics is the quickest way to earn the banhammer. There are plenty of other places on the internet for you to talk about politics and/or religion.

Thanks,
Remy

Even if Baugh has straightened up, we're not very deep at a critical position in our offense.  

Exactly.

Sam was spending some time with the tight ends, too.

If I remember correctly Hubbard was in the picture of Hinton and the tight ends on the boat last year.

By the way, I hope you, Oyster, OSU Alum and the gang understand that my "quitting" article was a joke and I don't mind your hijacking ways. I had planned on doing an early April Fool's article and the hijack of my thread was the perfect opportunity for me to pull it off.

Liam Gallagher with an Access All Areas pass to a Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds gig

Unky Buck, Thanks for the look out. I am trying to keep my reunion hopes tempered, but this article from The Telegraph is making it hard to do so:

Former Oasis frontmen and brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, known for their long standing feud, may have reconciled, if Liam's Twitter feed is any indication.

The rocker recently tweeted a picture of himself with an Access All Areas pass for a Milan gig for Noel's band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, accompanied by the words “Keeping it in the family... LG x”.

Liam also recently posted an encouraging tweet aimed at Noel, ahead of the latter's show at Manchester Arena, reading: “Hometown gig tonight. Keeping it dangerous.”


At the same time these quotes from years past make you realize it can all fall apart in an instant:

In a 2009 interview with Q magazine, Noel described Liam as:"rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy," adding: "He’s the angriest man you’ll ever meet. He’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup."

In 2011, after Noel claimed that he was bullied during his time with Oasis, Liam toldNME: "I just know he lies. Noel wasn’t bullied out of the band ... I have my [bad days] but Noel Gallagher can be a little b**tch when he wants to be."

Faux_Maestro, The White Stripes would have been a great band to watch as well. Fortunately Jack White is going strong as a solo artist.

I was lucky enough to see Oasis live three times: The concert above, 2000 at The Palace in Columbus and 2002 at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. They were a true live concert rock band and put on a great show musically. Not a lot of flash, but they cranked out the tunes.

The first time I was supposed to see them was 1996 in Dayton. Had the tickets and me and three friends drove to the concert. We arrived early because all seats were general admission. When we arrived at UD Arena the parking lot was empty. Turns out the concert was cancelled because of the infamous fight between Noel and Liam. I got a refund for my ticket, but I now wish I had held onto it.

Noel is on tour now and he is worth the money. I saw him in 2012 when he played at the LC and he was great.

Best: Oasis at Pittsburgh January 1998.

Near the end of the concert Liam threw his tambourine to my girlfriend, but she tipped it in the air. I intercepted it, but had to wrestle two stoned brutes for the rest of the concert to keep it. 

An exact replica of this tambourine is in my house. Gallagher put green and silver star stickers on the sides of the tambourine.
