Was that gif taken from Super 8 video?
I was sitting one section to your left and took the exact same picture.
I like the red pants, kinda like the jersey, but don't like the helmet at all. That said, kudos on your creativity and design skills.
If there's someone's analysis I want to hear less than Stanley Jackson's, it's Matt Leinart.
"Don't call it a comeback"
This is awesome.
I emailed the station once to suggest a morning show consisting of local talent and got a nice response from - I assume - Stringbean, who said that their contract with ESPN obligated them to air Mike and Mike. Why they are obligated to air them on both 97.1 and 1460, I don't know.
FWIW, I would ditch Beau Bishop and Tim Hall. T-Bone I can take or leave. I agree with the comments about too much talk about non-Buckeye topics when we are either just coming out of or heading into a Buckeye football game. I really like Common Man, BCarp, Krenzel, and Spiels. Also, and I know this really isn't the subject of this particular topic, I am not that big of a Lachey fan on the game broadcasts.
I haven't listened much, if at all, to 95.5, so I will have to check that out.
And beyond losing The Game with frustrating regularity while having superior talent most years - after all, "it's just another game" - there were the hot tub ads, and Stanley Jackson. If it wasn't for Cindy Cooper on TV the whole experience would have been a loss. As it is, she wasn't enough to even it out. Let's forget it ever happened.
Yep. Although, I think I find the NASA video of Mission Control trying to hail Columbia on radio after they lost contact during re-entry the more agonizing of the two incidents.
"Obviously a major malfunction."
Correct. And I want to say that it was Wiscy who played the same role in the early to mid-80's the week prior to The Game.
No, my friend, WE ourselves are going to cause us to miss the playoffs if Oregon and ND don't slip up. As noted below, that loss was on everyone from Urban and Coach Mensa down through the water boy. A properly prepared, well-coached team able to make in-game adjustments would have never lost that game.
EDIT: For the record, I am NOT saying that we are not NOW properly prepared and well-coached. The VT game was, as has been said elsewhere, a kick in the collective groin of this team from Urban on down that served as a mighty wake-up call. In fact, I think that this team is now the better for it.
"If you think the offense is good now, just wait til 'Justin Zwick' (said in the hushed, reverential tone befitting the anticipation) is ready..."
I like Scarlet and Red.
The pizzas and cheesy bread are the loss-leaders, you're actually paying for the tickets and they are throwing the food in to get you to buy.
I don't consider myself a cat person at all but I currently have three of the crazy felines,
I could hum a few bars of that hymn, brother.
Rutgers: East til you smell it, north til you step in it.
The Complete Works of Plato (seriously); Aristotle's "Metaphysics' and 'Nichomachean Ethics'; 'The Confessions' by St. Augustine; The complete (and growing) 'Shannara' series by Terry Brooks.
"Serving Size: 1", right?
This calls for a Hot-N-Ready.
I seriously had no idea that we were known for being inhospitable.
Quick anecdote: I was in the VC one night for an installment of The Game and amidst the sea of scarlet and gray, a husband and wife awash in maize and blue walked in and stationed themselves right in the middle of the main bar. I'm not sure they paid for a drink all night. It was like they were celebrities or something, everyone around them was as friendly and welcoming as could be and people were coming from other parts of the bar to make a point of saying hello and welcoming them. If there had been smartphones and the Twitters at the time, they would have been the subject of a lot of selfies.
So, yeah, cheering for their destruction on the field is one thing, but I've never seen our fans as inhospitable, and I've seen a lot of drunks from both sides in close proximity to one another.
How long ago was that?? I was a freshman in the Fall of 1980 and 7, and I'm purtdamnshure it was BD then.
