Funny, I traded Pliny for Zombie Dust with Nappy (mod on here) years ago. I absolutely loved ZD but the shipping costs were as much or more than the beer. And the beers weren't cheap to start with. The best part of the beer scene is that you can find amazing breweries EVERYWHERE. No reason to have to seek out something brewed on the other side of the country when there's a brewery making something just as great 5 miles down the road.

"The average Joe is not the probable first pick of the NFL draft. These young men pay a price to play the sport they love and we benefit for our entertainment. They owe us nothing." Exactly! It seems many of these "fans" look at these players as modern day gladiators who risk injury solely for their entertainment. Just because you wear a t-shirt with a Block O or even went to the same school 20-30 years ago doesn't mean that owe their health or careers to you.

I personally think Britney shaving her head was an abomination and was the largest overstep. I mean, she was hot - who does she think she is cutting all that pretty hair off and making us see her look all androgynous? Brb, gotta go make sure my requested PTO is covenient for my department - I'm really hoping we don't miss that major deliverable.

Do I have an issue with Nick for not staying around during recovery? Nope. Because he's a stranger that owes me nothing. I think it would be silly to have an issue with an amateur student that made a decision based on what he felt was in his best interest health and career wise. I haven't analyzed the timing of when he announced because I wasn't in the situation nor could/should anyone attribute that loss to him decomishioning his season. That's silly. I am also not firmly in any camp of what he should've done. At all. I would've loved to see him recover quickly and have 4-5 top performances. But I cannot pretend to know the real details of what he was experiencing health and recovery wise, what he was advised to do, what he felt was best for himself. I just find it "odd" (to put it politely) how people who are completely unconnected from Nick can say what he should've done. No camp, here. No second guessing here. Just because he played football for the school I went to doesn't give me right to pass judgement. That's just my $0.02, since you asked.

Amazing how you think that you speak for everyone, I would have come back for three games IF healthy as would many other people of honor. I certainly would not have left the team, would have been on the sidelines every game.

Yet you speak like you were Nick Bosa, hypothetically.  It's quite easy to say from your couch that you "would've come back to play", but I highly doubt the Average Joe would actually jeopardize tens of millions of dollars just to rush a recovery and maybe play 2-3 games.

Come on, be real with yourself.

My car was rear ended about 10 years ago and found out I had a mild herniated disk in my thoracic spine. It was confirmed by a CT scan after going to quite a few appointments with a Chiropractor (quacks!), a massage therapist and physical therapy. It bothered me for a few years (mostly after sitting at a desk or in a car) until I got a standing desk. It just went away after a few months, no kidding. Accident happened to me in my mid 20s, cleared up before I turned 30.

Boss Baby, the season 1 cartoon on Netflix, the lady who was going to get all the babys to cry on the flight to Paris because she was promised free college for her kid yelled out "my baby's going to Ohio State!" after she was discovered.

Just did some damage on a large Everest from Mountain Mikes. Pepperoni, Italian sausage, salami, linguica, beef, mushrooms, black olives, bell peppers, and onion. Not a fast food pizza person but Mountain Mikes does a good job.

Yeah, my exact thoughts at first glance. "You teams cannot advertise on your uniforms, but our Bowl sponsors certainly can!"
