I don't know what your dream means, but I enjoyed reading that story more than The Great Gatsby.
Also, the Ohio State would've been destroyed meme is really starting to irritate me. I saw how vaunted Florida, Georgia, LSU, and South Carolina did in their bowls. It wasn't impressive.

Well they do have more speed, moxy, and antler spray than Ohio State can handle.

That has to be the strangest opening to a Skulll Session ever. Did you go to sleep hungry?
Anyway...My Valentine's Day consisted of anger, frustration, and depression. But that was only after watching the Buckeyes and Lakers play. Is it really too much to ask for both to win on the same frakin night? Is it August yet?

 Would it have pissed off the entire country? Probably, but it's true.

The entire country? Outside of the S-E-C, I really doubt it. I also I don't care what anyone from that conference thinks.

Who wants to go on a cruise?!?!?

And this is why I stay on dry land.

I'm no Freud, but i think it was a post-NSD hangover. Your dream persona was all of Buckeye Nation, and the toothless sandwich guy was the Southern football god. He was telling you that the Buckeyes could have the elite talent that Coach Meyer recruited but that he wouldn't be able to use it fully. And you were ready to show him and everyone else that you (the Buckeyes) could and would finish the sandwich (use the talent to win a national championship). 
Or maybe the sandwich was just a sandwich.....

Excellent analysis! You must be like a palm reader or shaman or something. If not, you should be. ;)

But she's said before that she doesn't follow recruiting all that closely.

The dream could be about the Lakers. You thought you were getting this dominating force, only to be told by later that you couldn't handle it, so instead you get the broken version.

Clearly, Elika, those who doubt your true existence are in your head. 
Your dream reminds me of an old sctv skit with John Candy in which he takes a large sandwich on the Orient Express and is questioned whether he has "papers" to travel with said sandwich. My retelling sucks but the skit was great. 

HS

Cool. So this is like open-line Friday, Elika?

On the dream- no idea. But I had one Tuesday in which a 40+ year old Michael Jordan was walking to his car outside United Center after a win in the NBA Finals (but the series wasn't over). I see him out of the corner of my eye and am like, "hey MJ." He looks at me, still walking, and says, "hey. How's it going? (MJ voice)." I say back, "congratulations on title #7." He smiles knowingly: the "no one is going to beat me in the fucking finals smile," says thanks and gets in his car. I get in my car and just say, "damn, I love that man." Ps- in this bizarro world 40+ MJ was still in impeccable shape. 
End of dream. Ridiculous.

I heard earlier this week Magic talking about how MJ used to do the opponents during the finals when they came to Chicago. He would invite them to his restaurant, feed them well, make them feel comfortable and then pay for their meal. He would basically show them they are in his town and they have no chance to win. That's just straight playing dirty, gotta love it man.
Magic said he never accepted MJ's invites to his restaurant for that reason. lol

To me, that's what sets MJ apart as the greatest. 
LeBron is a great player, but he's mentally weak. It hurts him when people criticize him or disrespect him. You can see it in his face and hear it in his words. Criticizing or disrepecting MJ was a sure fire way to get embarassed. There's nothing wrong with LeBron's reaction- in fact it probably makes him a better person than MJ.
I think MJ would be in LeBron's head so deep he'd be writing LeBron's thoughts for him. I'm not sure anybody in any sport has been as competitive as MJ.

The dream means you know how to make one hell of a sandwich.  I suggest you do so, take pictures, and post them with the recipe, STAT!

Fairly certain dreams don't mean anything.  At least I hope not because some of mine have been so batshit insane most people would think I need to be institutionalized.  Seriously, they're crazy.
Yours just sounds like you went to bed hungry and somehow developed the worlds best sandwich.  I mean, who wouldn't want a sandwich with bacon and jalapeno poppers?

HS
IBLEEDSCARLETANDGRAY's picture

Now you got me craving jalapeno poppers
There's a Carnival cruise terminal not far from my apartment here in Tampa and I'd been giving thought to making that my vacation for 2013. Um, not now. That would be my luck my 1 getaway for the entire year I get stranded in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico on a crap-filled, no-air conditioned boat with 4,000 sweaty and angry SEC fans.

I agree with your sentiments about the cruise.  I don't care to ever go on one.  Give me a nice all-inclusive resort on a tropical island thankyouverymuch.

Don't know what to tell you about your dream, but I had a dream that I was hanging out with UFM, strolling around UF's campus with our OSU gear on.  He was really cool to hang out with, and all the ladies still love him!  Not sure what that's supposed to mean though.

I think you need to stop worrying about the meaning of the dream and starting figuring out how to make that sandwhich and what the hell sandwhich did you originally choose, because if you picked it over the bacon/jap-popper sandwhich it must have been amazing.

Easy:  You go to a backwards southern town (Tuscaloosa) to enjoy your much anticipated sandwich (BCS National Championship game). It doesn't matter that the game was actually played in Miami.  It is, after all, a dream.
The toothless moron behind the counter (representative of the SEC, the BCS, and the NCAA because things in dreams often have multiple meanings) denies you not only the sandwich you craved (title game victory over Notre Dame), but also the even more appealing sandwich you really wanted (victory over the SEC and Alabama, who everyone knows was the better team and more challenging--and delicious--opponent). 
Alas, you are denied even the attempt to devour the sandwich, due to your apparent lack of credentials (weak schedule, conference affiliation, not to mention the bowl ban), despite your perfect 12-0 record.
The dream is a nightmare reliving of the 2012 postseason, as well as a cautionary tale to warn that the B1G better get its act together or face becoming irrelevant and not worthy of a bite at the Big Sandwich.

Your dream meant that Sam's 360 was a lot better than the sandwich would have been.

Sooner or later it all gets real.

Maybe your dream means that you should write a book explaining how you eat the food that you eat and are not at all fat.  OK, maybe that's not what it means, but wishful thinking for a guy who would totally eat a bacon and jalapeno popper sandwich (with ranch) and is fat :\
Titus is dead on about skunkweasel basketball.  Shoddy officiating away from now 4 straight losses.  I hope last night's win over Northwestern was just sluggish play, and not some sort of blueprint on how to slow down DT.  Not like they completely stuffed him, though...

Speaking of Titus' article, this statement completely blew my mind:

That doesn't require a whole book, I'll fill you in...

1. I eat healthy a lot of the time. 

2. If I am paying attention to what I'm eating, I make sure that it still has flavor and protein to keep me satisfied. 

3.  If I want something unhealthy, I eat it and I don't feel bad about it. But I also don't do this for every single meal. 

4. I drink lots of water. Sometimes we mistake thirst for hunger. 

5. I work out six to twelve hours a week.

Sounds like you took this decommit from Lawrence Marshall way too harsh. Lawrence Marshall is the sandwich and his commitment was the promise the night before that you will have the "sandwich" but then the next day you don't get it.
I think you need to take a Carnival Cruise break Elika? I hear its getting real cheap now.

First Friday of Lent and your talking of short ribs and bacon... going to be a long day.
Game last night was painful.  Not sure if I should read into Lenzelle getting hot while DT was on the bench or not
I'll go ahead and adjust the bucket list not to reflect any desire for an extended stay on any large ocean going vessels.  Furthermore if I happen to get on a small boat with a ship's captain, his first mate, an actress, a professor, a farm girl, a millionaire and his wife my spot will be immediately vacated.

The offseason is the longest season.

I was wondering why he hadn't been playing so far, other than Thad's typical shallow bench. Hopefully next year he and Amir can be a one-two punch down low and Ross can be our outside scorer.

That dream is fairly easy to interpret. It is basically a "frustration" dream. You are not getting something that you want in your life right now. You feel you have earned it, or have a right to it, and others you know have received what they wanted, but you are being unfairly denied what you seek. You have to figure out exactly what "it" is. Either that or you had indigestion during the night....

The dream seems pretty obvious to me.  Your a recruit of an SEC school.  You call the night before signing day and give your verbal pledge to the coaching staff.  You sleep very good after doing so, good enough to dream even, but much to your chagrine when you try to commit someone has already taken your spot even though you thought it was reserved.  So they point you to another SEC school (last sandwich) that may have an open scholly which they dangle in front of your face in an effort to keep you hanging on until a better prospect comes along.  In this case they do come along and they tell you that your not worthy of eating their sandwich er scholarship and your screwed. (You wake up in Kentucky??)  Whatever...  glad to help

Well Elika, I'm a practicing dream expert so here goes: to see a sandwich in your dream suggests that a lot of pressure and stress is being put on you. It also reflects your ability to do two things at once. Alternatively, a sandwich is just a sandwich sometimes and I feel you may be watching too much Diners,Drive-ins, and Dives!
