That's fine, but as a parent you can't expect to take them to a sporting event and still be able to shield them from hearing people curse. It just isn't plausible.

Well as ol' Bob Knight put it, fuck is probably the most useful word in the English language. 

Comment 19 Sep 2014

I'm sorry, but unless you are prepared to explain to your kids the purpose/intent of expletives, or you do not want to expose them to swearing, the last thing any parent should do is take their kid to a sporting event. There will be copious amounts of swearing at them, and there always will be.

Smith and Forge is fantastic. Not too sugary/sweet, and extremely smooth.

Running the spread in college literally has nothing to do with why RG3 has cratered in the NFL. He was rookie of the year running Shanahan's offense, which is a spread scheme. The reason RG3 is starting to bust is because he's made out of glass. 

QBs from pro-style systems are busts in the NFL, just like QBs from spread systems. 

Commented on RG3

This. The only time I sit in the student section is halftime, and even then TBDBITL usually puts out some banger of a halftime show that you just have to stand and watch. 

Comment 02 Sep 2014

This is just idiotic. There is no other way to describe this policy. Text if someone won't sit down? This isn't a PBS period crime TV show that you and your blue hair husband watch in your separate twin beds, it's a fucking football game. You stand and you cheer, and you don't fucking sit if you're physically able to stand. 

Comment 02 Sep 2014

As a student I more so partake in the whole "Get loaded and scream expletives for 3 hours" strategy. 

Comment 31 Aug 2014

I have a cousin that works for VT's Transportation Institute, and one of my buddies from high school is in the Army ROTC program at Virginia Tech, so there will be plenty of smack-talking this weekend. 

Comment 30 Aug 2014

34-17 is all that matters, and they even covered the spread. How can anyone complain about this game? They won against a decent team, with a new QB and 4 new starters on the O-line. I'll take that any day of the week. On to the next one.

The ACT requirement for that is a 28, and the SAT (math+reading) a 1260, so there are other requirements other than being in the top 40% of your class. I qualified for that my freshman year, before I was able to weasel my way into in-state before classes started, of course it was only 8k a year then. 

Comment 21 Aug 2014

1) Being out-of-state will help, they want your money. 
2) See if you can get some tutoring for the ACT, a score in the 27-29 range would really help your cause. 
3) Your father's alumni status should help. 
4) It has been said above, but get involved in as many extracurricular activities as you can manage, it will only help your chances.

Liverpool doesn't have the depth to win the league this year, and Man United are going to be absolute trash, they don't have a back four or a decent midfield. There are three realistic contenders for the league this year due to their depth: Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea. 

Comment 20 Aug 2014

I've been an Arsenal fan since 2003. My dad was doing some training with the SAS over in the UK, and one of their officers gave him an Arsenal jersey, which he gave to me when he came back, and I've been a fan ever since. It just so happened that the following season was the one in which Arsenal went undefeated, and that team was nicknamed "The Invincibles", so I had a pretty good start to my Arsenal fandom. 

Comment 20 Aug 2014

If you're rooting for anyone other than Le Prof and Arsenal, you're doing it wrong. Chelsea is owned by a Russian oligarch, Man City is owned by an oil sheikh sugar daddy, and Man United by the idiotic Glazer family. Arsenal, unlike the 4 other members of the Big 5 (Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man United and now Man City) has always maintained a fiscally responsible policy towards managing the club, unlike other clubs, which often try to make it rain during transfer windows. Arsenal ended its ~9 year trophy drought this past year by winning the FA Cup, after having enforced fiscal austerity on itself to pay for its new stadium in North London. In an era of sports teams fucking over cities by having them foot the bill for stadiums, it's pretty noble of a franchise to not only pay off its own debts, but also ensure that it doesn't incur any further ones (looking at you Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man United, Chelsea, PSG, Monaco, Man City). 

Also for the love of all that is holy, don't root for Tottenham, they blows ass-chunks and will always disappoint, it's really a shame that they signed Yedlin. They will always be 3rd best in London.

Good Will Hunting, not only because he was so brilliant in it, but because it is my favorite movie. What Dreams May Come, Dead Poets' Society, Patch Adams, Jumanji, Aladdin, Hook, the list goes on. The man was brilliant. 

Comment 08 Aug 2014

I'll be a senior this year, but will be taking a victory lap next year (changing from one double major to another definitely lengthens your stay.) 

Comment 07 Aug 2014

Even with a healthy Rose and the magician that Thibodeaux is, I don't see anyone in the East contending with the Cavs, it shouldn't even be close. The Cavs will trot out Irving-Waiters-LeBron-Love-Varejao as their starting five, with Miller, Thompson, Dellevadova, Jones and possibly Marion/Allen as their bench. That is a team with scoring power, depth and balance. Could defense be an issue? Maybe, but Blatt has proven throughout his career that he knows how to shape his defensive system around the players that he has. 

I also woudn't be surprised to see the Cavs trade Haywood and his megacontract for a center next year. Hopefully New Orleans tanks and a guy like Asik becomes available. 

Comment 07 Aug 2014

This. I don't understand how any Cavs fans could not like this trade. Yes, Wiggins has potential, but Kevin Love is the best PF in the game. The guy averaged 26 and 12, was a positive defensive presence (people who say he's awful on defense don't know shit about basketball, he gave up .72 points per possession last season, which was 43rd in the entire league, hardly bad), and was one of the most efficient players in the NBA last year. He's a Moses Malone clone with a better jumper. He provides the Cavs with an elite stretch 4 that will clear the paint, providing Irving, Waiters and LeBron with lanes for driving the net. The Cavs are going to be an offensive juggernaut if these reports are legitimate. Who do you guard? Irving, Love or LeBron? Because there isn't a single team in the NBA that can guard all three of those guys at the same time, not without opening up lanes/opportunities for guys like Waiters, Miller, Varejao or Thompson.
