And for every can you return, you get another bet.

Although one of the most awesome/fun things is to throw out a can, a single can, I bring up from Ohio when I'm visiting my little brother (It's technically illegal to do so with cans bought in TSUN).  The looks I get are awesome.  Also, before you ask, because of can redemption, there is literally no recycling available anywhere up there.

The most fun I'll have with this is when I visit my younger brother, who works up there, and recently moved to the west side of Ann Arbor Mordor (also totally photoshopping a "One does not simply walk into Mordor" to have the TSUN M in it.  He went to UC, but said he's willing to put it up if I make it.).  I'll wear some Ohio State gear and randomly shout out, go Amarillo!  With a heavy accent on the double L.

Rest in Peace to one of the best coaches ever, regardless of sport.  I suppose you could say she already had reached the Summit of Rocky Top, where did she have to go but up?

That's the part I don't really believe, and that the reporter just went ahead and published for emotional appeal more than any reasoned argument.  Considering the number of players before 2014 who were held out for concussions, and definitely the amount of almost "over caution" the OSU Medical staff has taken since, I can't see him being pushed to come back.  Maybe his mom misinterpreted teammates and coaches expressing solidarity with him, like, "We miss you at practice, can't wait until you're back."

My first callous thought when hearing about the cancellation was, "Don't we have 3 students who are Brutus at the same time, that way he can be at multiple events?", then "Well, if something happens, we'll still have the other two."  Yes, I know, I'm a terrible person.

To be fair, this is the reason my grandfather settled in San Diego, not Northern California.  He has some not so polite things to say about Northern Californians and whining (so obviously it's a cultural thing).

I was pretty okay with J.T.'s punishment for a first time offense, even though my cousin was killed by a drunk driver just as he had finally gotten clean and away from the drugs and alcohol abuse that had wrecked his life.  The lady who killed him in the wreck was driving on a suspended liscense, and it was the fourth time she had been charged with DUI.  However, she had never been offered  counseling as part of her sentences, so my uncle convinced the judge and DA to drop the charge to manslaughter and get her help while in prison.  Frankly, IMHO most minor offenses, when they do not result in damage to anyone else, should be met with minor punishment emphasizing education and pyschological help.  But that guy from Stanford better not ever show his face in Columbus, because, again, IMHO, a short sentence for violent felony sexual assault (the charges he was convicted of did not actually include rape) of this nature would be at least 6 years, with 3 plus 3 probation offered for good behavior.
