This is possibly what we're going to see on the field to start the season, with Vannett in there as well. The rest of the college football world has to be shitting their collective pants.

None of that changes the fact he is still not that good of a QB. He's an amazing athlete, yes, but he has a long way to go before he could ever be considered even a backup quality QB in the NFL.

Better than my Tribe. Kluber loses another one because of no run support against the Royals.

Can't give up 6 runs in back-to-back starts and complain about run support.

What do you know? You don't even have any helmet stickers!

I dunno why but this made me laugh harder than anything I've read on here in a long time. +1

So this is extremely delicious and doesn't take much time:

Toast a piece of bread
Take a clove of garlic, cut it in half, and rub the cut side on the bread (the warmth allows the garlic oils to seep into the toast)
Top with Sriracha mayo
Pile on spinach, an overeasy egg and grated parmesan cheese

Life (Cinnamon) after I let it sit in the milk for a bit.

Absolutely crucial step that so many fail to respect.

Columbus counts the suburbs into their population while Cleveland and Cincinnati don't, hence the enormous difference in population. Land-wise, if Cleveland counted it's suburbs, Columbus would be a distant second. It takes 45 minutes to get from Dublin (NW part of Columbus) to Lancaster (not even a suburb, good distance SE of Columbus). Cleveland's suburbs are spaced way further out.

I've commented a very small amount on my experiences with people from Cincinnati, and they were just comments. I didn't start an entire thread pissing and moaning like an angry toddler like you did.

Also, Cincinnati has a higher murder rate than Cleveland, and the woman who dropped her kid at the zoo was from frickin Delaware, not Cleveland.

Cleveland and the surrounding area have the RNC in 2016, the hottest team in the NBA, world-class breweries, the best wine area in the state, and new restaurants opening all over the place to go with some of the highest-rated ones in the state. Cincinnati, meanwhile, appears on "The First 48" in nearly every episode. Good for you.

..meanwhile the guy who punched barker dissapears..

Of course he did. He's a coward, just like any other wannabe thug who ever sucker punches someone. Just like that little fucking coward York from ttun.

Comment 13 Apr 2015

he rest of the state's problem with Cincinnati is really only rooted in the sad bunch of Ohio State fans from Wherever, OH that feel the only way you're a true, nice Ohioan is if you're also a Buckeye fan.  If you're not a Buckeye fan, then you're probably an arrogant Ohio-hating douchebag from Cincitucky.  So, then everyone from that area becomes an arrogant Ohio-hating douchebag.

Has nothing to do with OSU/UC dude. That's what everyone is telling you. People from Cincinnati, much like yourself, are inexplicably arrogant about not only living in Cincinnati, but on where everyone else lives, as well. 

And on a final note before I do, in fact "let it go," I'm going to give my 2 cents on the Skyline thing.  The ONLY people I have come across that don't like Cincinnati chili are northern Ohioans.  Seriously, the only ones... I am convinced that the reason there is such a high rate of Skyline-intolerance amongst the northern Ohio population is simply because of its association with Cincinnati, and not the taste.  You've already made up your mind that you don't like it because you don't like how much the person introducing it to you has too much pride in his own city, so you're not going to let him/her away with it.  It's not arrogance.  It's literally what I've observed.

I've mentioned this is another thread. My first Skyline experience was when they opened a franchise of my hometown in Findlay, OH. It was horrible. The shit was literally gray in color and tasted like flavorless paste. I've had it a couple of times since, once in Cincy and once in Columbus. It wasn't bad but it's not some food nirvana like you describe. It tastes much better when you load it up with hot sauce. I've had better chili at several different places, not just in northern Ohio.

So with that, thank you for all of your time.  Not going to apologize for trolling anyone, because Cincinnati gets trolled every day while Akron, Toledo, and Cleveland don't.

You're kidding me, right?

Andy Dwyer, underrated character. Well done.

Reddit did an AMA with the guy that plays Jerry/Larry?Gary Gergich on that show, and one of the questions was who the funniest, most talented person on the show was. He said it was hands down Chris Pratt. He referred to him as a "comical genius". Most of Andy Dwyer's lines were just ad-libbed by Chris. 

Comment 13 Apr 2015

Nailed it. When I went to OSU for college, I had little experience with folks from Cincinnati. I got a lot of that condescending attitude, especially when I told them I had never been there and that when I had Skyline chili I thought it was gross. The most annoying thing was when they said "if you haven't been to Cincinnati, you just don't understand", as if it was some far off, mystical Utopia or something. Well, I've since been there several times and it's nothing special. Personally I think Cleveland is 10x the city in most ways, and it's showing with recent events.

Comment 13 Apr 2015

Wow, that was one of the saddest rants I've ever heard. I believe I even saw you later say "I don't take shit from nobody". 

Comment 13 Apr 2015

I believe you can get them at the stadium, at least you could in the past. However, I want to say they're more expensive than if you pre-order them.

Comment 13 Apr 2015

What I don't get is the hype around hopslam, while its good it is incredibly over rated.

Agree. It's just so hard to come by. I had it this year and it was OK, but not as good as I remembered it being. I definitely think there are at least 3-5 IPAs in NE Ohio that are better.

Nailed it, Broseph. This is a top-notch beer. Better than many of the big name ones.

Comment 10 Apr 2015 ponies Ozzie Smith and Cal Ripken.

19x All-Star
2x Gold Glove Winner
8x Silver Slugger
2x All-Star MVP
All-time Consecutive Games streak (and it's not even close)
.276 BA, 431 HR, 1695 RBI, 1647 runs

Cal Ripken was by no means a "one-trick pony".

Lets say you are managing a game that you laid 10% of your salary on. Would you manage it differently? Would you not manage it like it was the 7th game of the WS and tax your pen etc? Same question if you know you are betting on tomorrows game. Would you save your guys?

Would I manage it differently? No, of course not, that's foolish. As a manager, you manage to win the game. If he's managing his guys to win a game, I don't see the difference. Also, was it ever even remotely proven he "saved guys"? Besides, these are professionals. The absolute best of the best. None of what you pointed out ever prove a "competitive advantage" in the slightest bit. Any and every other manager in the majors would be free to manage the exact way. There is absolutely no advantage to playing the completely eligible players at your disposal on your roster whenever and however you'd like to. 

As a manager you have control over who plays. What lineup you use. Who comes in out of the bullpen. How long you keep a pitcher in when he is getting shelled. I would say as a manager Rose had more impact over the game than as a player. He could clearly give his own team a bad disadvantage by not playing the right people in the right manner or delaying decisions

Yes, you do. Could it have potentially hurt his team? You may be able to prove it, but you'd have to find a pretty firm amount of proof to support that claim. Again, in terms of giving his team a competitive advantage, there is none at all whatsoever. He used the players on his roster, all of whom were legal to play, and did nothing illegal in terms of how he managed the game. Every other manager in the league could just as easily managed in the same way, as there was nothing illegal about how he managed his team.
