A few years ago around the time the Foo Fighters released their album Wasting Light they had a contest to win a garage show. A student of mine had entered the contest and won. Knowing that I am a fan they invited my wife and I. It was a great experience, a band that had recently sold out Wembley Stadium playing for about 30 people in a garage in Waldorf Maryland of all places. The entire band was great interacting with us, taking time to talk and sign merch. My student must have mentioned that I was their teacher because when meeting Dave Grohl he exclaimed 'You must be the history teacher' and he shared that his mother was a teacher and how important education is. It was very cool and something that I will never forget, with special thanks to my former student of course.
Agreed, one more than I'm done, I swear. This morning downtown nearly saw a pedestrian get taken out by not one but three cars turning left while the walk sign was clearly in favor of those using the crosswalk. I just watched as each one came within inches of splattering a young professional all over the pavement. Situational awareness is not something those three drivers can rely on.
I am forever frustrated when at red light and there are two lanes but no middle turning lane and you pull up behind someone that does not have their left turn signal on. One then would assume they will continue straight through the intersection once the light changes. Instead once the signal changes to green they turn on their left signal, or no signal at all and now you are stuck behind them. That is most irritating.
If you want to root for a team or player that's your right. Why would the people of a city hold that much sway over your choices?
Very uplifting and informative article. The information associated with the article and your responses absolutely backs up many of the reasons my wife and I settled on Columbus as our city of choice upon our return to Ohio from the DMV area. It just feels good to apart of a city that has a real community feel to it, much different from the areas that we experienced in Maryland and Virginia.
You are absolutely correct, it is just mind games and making the opposition prepare for every possible scenario.
Total mouth breather.
I'm in as well. Germany looks like my favorite, edging out the home squad.
Pink bunny pajamas, a season long pink nightmare.
