Quite frankly, it was more to do with getting to watch the football games. Plus, locally where I'm at (NC/Ft Bragg area), the package I needed cost less than DirectTV/Dish. I still keep the Roku active for there are many kids shows my little ones like.
BuckeyeBoy, I bought the Roku last year after dropping DirectTV to cut costs in the house. It is simple, and utterly reliable. I'm back on cable but still have the Roku. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Pandora, etc., it's still being used. I highly recommend it. I don't know anything about the Apple (not an Apple user), but am very familiar and a fan of the Roku. FWIW
1. No, I don't see myself starting to watch soccer, whether it's leagues in the U.S. or anywhere else.
2. I will check the scores when they're posted, but that's about it. I will always hope for the best for any of our national teams, whether soccer, ping pong, or ice sweeping...
3. No on this also.
Nothing against the sport or those who follow it, but it holds little interest for me.
Considering the final score, I hope there are enough of those shirts to go around...
Arizona, Boise State, LSU, Tennessee, and Ohio State.
1) I prefer the old 11W site to the new one.
2) I can't stand the snob Buckeye fans who look down on those who didn't attend the university (but who have followed the Buckeyes since we could walk, but were unable to attend due to 'whatever' the circumstance). I've watched Buckeye games from every continent (except Antarctica) during various deployments, not matter the local time.
3) I'm still pissed off at Minnesota for the mugging they gave Luke Witte.
4) I want a QB who can pass.
5) I laugh at folks who flip out over GoT spoilers (or any other show spoilers).
Actually, he didn't say he wanted an apology, he said he didn't appreciate your disrespect. You are the one who said to go get an apology from Alex.
I haven't heard, but I don't think I've seen any of the private school kids enroll early.
Buck, just to point something out, Jeff did nothing on the 11W site, so pointing out the commenting policy here isn't relevant to him/twitter, and/or displaying his name. With regards to Skid, I don't believe MrCheng had a problem.
Whether it's followed that often or not, it's the correct way to conduct business. Regardless, the individual referred to is not on 'staff'. It would have been just as effective if the name had been covered/removed. I enjoyed the article actually, but the one thing that struck me was the individuals actual name being displayed. Personally, I don't tweet at recruits (or anyone else for that matter), and find it odd those who do; and those who also get so emotionally wrapped up in a 16-18 y/o's decision making process.
Regardless of who you pick, just don't try to marry either...none of their husbands have fared well up to this point.
Exactly. If that is hard for some to understand, use Ramzy's birthday party analogy. If someone wants to be a Debbie-downer, make your own thread and invite all your 'glass half empty' friends over to commiserate with you.
No, but I do have a voracious appetite when going through a reading binge. I did the same with the Tom Clancy novels. One drawback, is that the disappointment once I've completed the books.
Agreed on the separation of the book and the show. I just reread the entire book series last month, to refresh my memory. My opinion is that the books, and the battle at the wall, needed no 'rework'. If I hadn't read the books, the show would seem pretty incredible; however, since I have read the books, its disappointing in many aspects. **See, no spoilers**
Indeed; though the mystery of when Romans became Italians still remains.
To offer my non (unbiased) opinion. It's an offer you don't have to accept.
Also, this is 11W, But I guess I mistakenly stepped into an UEFA Champion's League blog...
Well, I kind of put it in the same category of impressionist art, mimes, and Italian military history; it exists, but I have no interest.
It's soccer; I have no opinion.
I know. I was waiting for someone to insist this thread be labeled 'Book' or 'Show' or have a 'SPOILER ALERT' posted...
One way might be to stay away from these threads entirely, if you don't want any indication of either what just happened on the first airing of an episode (if you DVR it), or what might by upcoming in future episodes. No spoilers to those folks and everything is fresh and new when they watch it. It also keeps the repetitive griping about ruining the show/story. However, curiosity tends to take over, and one clicks on a thread like this, and the 'Groundhog' day of complaints begin anew.
Diversity is great; until we are so diverse we don't remember who we were. Take Washington DC for example; our nations capital feels like a foreign city due to all of the diversity. I'm sure many would argue that's a good thing. Me, I want my capital (or my state university) to emanate with a home grown, All American/Buckeye aura. Just my two cents.
This thread is now being 'Justified'...
