Does it seem to anybody else like this might be a really, really special year? Maybe there'll be a sign in the heavens this week...
Well played CH.
If you're a man over 40, make sure you get your prostrate exam every year.
Yeah, talk about breakfast food, that skunk weasel was pancaked ala Orlando Pace (if there is such a thing as being "mossed" perhaps we should refer to a block like this as being "Orlandoed"?).
This could be one of the greatest services ever provided to humanity. Thanks for that WMD, DJ.
Part of my wife's territory consisted of Michigan. She loved the UP, Grand Rapids area & Port Huron. I was doing a play on the "pure" in the slogan with the cons running for mayor.
Only one Bong Hill in Athens?
Lots of high school friends went to OU. I made the trip from OSU to Athens on Halloween weekend 1976. Yeah, it was pretty unbelievable. From what I've heard, it's more tightly controlled now; then it was alcohol, any drug you wanted, partying in the middle of the street, half-naked babes...
One of the biggest (but not the only reason) I transferred from Miami to tOSU after my freshman year. Unless you're into the Greek scene (had a lot of friends that pledged to frats - just not my thing), Oxford is pretty underwhelming.
I live close to Bowling Green - it's not a bad little college town (one of the top 100 according to the banners hanging downtown); if you're able, try and make it to the Black Swamp Music & Arts Festival (8-10 September). Lots of good bands with genres varying from R&B to Country.
I'm on my phone and can't post the article, but an August 4 piece in The Detroit News reported that half of the 8 mayoral candidates for the Motor City had been convicted of felonies. No wonder that once-great city looks like a third-world craphole.
Nothing like "pure Michigan" is there?
That's a reasonable, well thought-out comment, Blu. There seemed to be a few serial down-voters that got to mom's computer yesterday. I'm throwing you an upvote to counter.
Dang, ABB, I don't think my wife could have said it better!
Yeah, BBanzai. Very Stalinesque.
I'm a huge proponent of an organization's right to conduct business freely (with the obvious caveats - fair and equal treatment of all employees; ethical standards and practices), and to expect a certain standard of conduct from their employees.
However, most grievances or appeals made on behalf of employees by their union are heard by an IMPARTIAL, OUTSIDE mediator - not the guy who handed down the punishment in the first place.
C'mon, Wyatt. The reason Bosa moved was so Bosa could deal with Bosa without ANY distractions. Eventually he allowed close friends - including Zeke - back into his life.
I think you've hit the nail, Navy. This is as much about public perception and PR than the NFL pursuing "justice" in the matter. I thought the League may have suspended him for 1-2 games to make their point... a SIX game suspension, when there was no prosecution, seems draconian.
If evidence exists (and comes out) that Zeke DID assault her, I will be first to call for a long suspension, mandatory counseling, restitution, maybe a large fine paid to a domestic violence shelter, etc. I have zero tolerance for domestic violence and taught my boys, from the time they were old enough to understand, that you NEVER HIT A WOMAN! If said evidence doesn't exist, Zeke has been royally screwed because the NFL doesn't want another Ray Rice-kind of PR nightmare.
And as others have said, we love you, Zeke, but it's time to grow the eff up!!
Just beautiful, Earle.
Good catch, Navy. I wondered who the heck Stephen Mills was.
Saw CSN at Riverfront Coliseum in '78 (not quite old enough to be a hippie, though). Great songwriters and have always enjoyed their harmonies and sound.
That's a Southern pronunciation... heard it all the time in GA & NC when we lived there. But there are certainly plenty of other reasons to despise the Bungles.
IKR. My youngest son lives in Denver - same there. On a similar note...
We used to call Stroh's "weasel piss" - people in Florida would pay outrageous amounts for a six pack back in the day, though, cuz it was a novelty. I guess PBR is cheap.
Well done, Silver. Very underrated band, IMO.
According to WKNR, Peppers is 3rd string on the depth chart right now. Apparently playing every position on the field doesn't help prepare you for the NFL. Can you say, "(Not) developed here" scUM?!
Yep. As we used to say in the 419, "Red necks, white socks and Blue Ribbon beer!"
Welcome to life kid
Bingo, MB12! Josh needs to put on his big-boy pants & stop whining. I worked 82 hours last week & 75 hours the week before. I think that qualifies as two full-time jobs. In grad school I did a full 12-15 hours a semester (Masters level academics), worked 48 hours a week and had two kids under three. Sorry, Josh, you're not getting much sympathy from me or a lot of others who grind like this all the time. Hilarious that Cardale is "schooling" him on this.
Now, get off my lawn!
Ouch! True (and I had to chuckle a little), but ouch still the same!
$100 for those?! Damn! Guess my boys are right - I am a cheapskate.
Love to hear that about the Chef, too.
When we lived in Kendall ('80-'84), Dolphin tix were scarce as Harbaugh championships. Of course, they still played in the old Orange Bowl and had Shula, the Killer B's and a young QB just getting started named Dan Marino.
I don't want Colin Cowherd's jinx near Ohio State.
My immediate reaction, too BVtW. I know he has a huge man-crush on Urban, but his prediction scares me almost as much as SI putting the Buckeyes on their front cover.
Also, I think it was on his show, after UF destroyed us in the natty, that he mentioned a coach had predicted beforehand (ala ridge-runnin', road-kill eating, sister marryin' Dabo) OSU's fate - it wasn't Urban tho; it was Pete Carroll (who Cowherd also would spoon at night if he could).
It's the father-son angle with Hinton; plus he (dad) was the dude traded for Elway. Lot better story. Lot more human interest that attracts eyeballs; more eyeballs attracted mean more $$$... Always follow the Grants & Benjamins.
