I remember when we all called for instant replay to be used in-game to make things more fair. And how many times have watched a reviewed play, over and over ad nauseam, and thought...well, this is obvious! They have to overturn it!

And then they don’t.

I just can’t imagine that the human factor—errors—will ever be elimination from sports. At least until robots start playing, and I hope I’m dead by then.

P.S. Fuck Dan Fouts, Kellen Winslow Jr., and the U. Forever.

I was having a bad day yesterday so I checked out mgoblog. Ahhhh...nothing like a refreshing cup of schadenfreude! The followers of the skunkweasels are beside themselves watching their players and coaches bail out day after day () while their leader hunkers down in his bunker in A2. One even had a story about how a family member was an employee at Olentangy Orange high school and observed underhanded tactics by Washington while he was recruiting Zach Harrison for the other side. Supposedly, Hairball took the high ground, telling Washington that this was acceptable only at places like Ohio State, whereupon Washington sent a signal to Ryan Day that he was looking for a job. Their delusions are limitless.

I was only there for a few weeks and had to go downtown for a job interview (pre-Google maps, Internet, cell phones, etc.). Made it downtown, but got lost in the maze. Kept shouting out my window at passers-by, asking if they knew where the street was that I was looking for. No one did. Thanks for nothing.

We moved to Seattle in the summer of 1989. It was fantastic!

By January of 1990 I told Mr. Chick to get me the hell out of there. We lasted 6 more years, working at The Man’s airplane plantation, before surrendering and coming back to the midwest. When the Buckeyes came out to play UW, we got tickets, donned our Buckeye gear and went to the game. We didn’t even make it in before getting physically attacked by drunken frat boys. Had to call a cop.

Their fight song is Bow Down To Washington. Fuck them and their coffee.

You know how some countries have compulsory military service for a year or two for their young people? I’ve always thought we should have a compulsory year of customer service here. Foodservice, retail, whatever. It’s all the same...taking abuse for eight hours a day. You really have no idea until you’ve done it. I worked in food service to help pay for college, and it’s why I tip 20% almost every time. 

And it’s doubly hard for young women, who in addition to the usual bullshit everyone goes through, have to put up with random dickheads fondling, ogling, and making disgusting comments. I’m glad I had the experience, but damn glad I don’t have to do it anymore.

I hope that after the season he takes a week, goes to someplace warm with a nice beach and does some thinking about what happened and how he wants to go forward. I don’t blame him if he feels like the higher-ups at the university threw him under the bus, but if he hangs on to that anger it becomes bitterness and will hurt him, his family, and his team. Get it out of your system and let it go, ready for a fresh start in 2019,

And maybe revisit his views on what loyalty really looks like.

“Never hire friends or relatives.” THE golden rule of business, and the reason for it is on display this season. And I don’t know why Urban seems to think that firing an assistant coach is some sort of mortal sin.

By the way...does Saban hire friends and relatives? He hired Lane Kiffin, so I’m guessing no...
