I mean, you'd think Oregon would have learned to plan for a backup QB by now.

Seconding the recommendation for downtown. Be sure to venture off Fremont and check out East Fremont and the Container Park, where there are a lot of really cool bars and shops (RIP Insert Coins). 

Cosmo is my favorite hotel, though I mostly stay at Aria/Vdara when I go. Cosmo was absolutely dead when I was there in early November. It was kind of sad.

Also, check out Giada's at Cromwell. Wife and I went shortly after it opened this year, and it was amazing. It's a regular stop for us now too.

I live in Seattle, and this is 100% correct. I even had one tell me that TAMU wasn't even the first to use it, then proceeded to tell me a story about a guy that came out of the stands, and stood on the sidelines in uniform waiting to play, and that was where the 12th Man came from. But it most definitely wasn't at TAMU. 

I was like, "uh..." 

And yes, they refer to themselves as "12s", the official slogan is "We are 12", and I think their highest selling jersey is the "12" jersey because, as one "fan" told me, "it's cheaper, and I don't have to waste money on a guy who's not going to be here that long anyway".

tl;dr Seahawk fans are the WORST.

So, for some reason, when I started playing this video, the WWE Network feed I had in another browser started playing. It's an old Attitude Era RAW. The audio was Michael Cole interviewing Sable, and he's talking about how Luna was going to "humiliate her, and strip her down to her bra and panties." This was happening as Zeke was slicing through the Oregon defense in sad black and white video. 

And I thought to myself, "man, this is the weirdest hype video I've ever seen."

What's the difference between "jail" and "banned"?

To go more recent, I'm gonna say Selfie. Yeah, yeah, I know, but that show got significantly better after its dreadful pilot, and was shaping up to be a solid show when it got cancelled. Thankfully, Hulu aired the rest of its run, it's worth checking out. 

And here is where I complain about ABC's run of torpedoing good-to-great shows with horrible names that turn off the audience:

Better off Ted, GCB, Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23, Cougar Town, Selfie, and Happy Endings, just to name a few. Thankfully, blackish and Fresh Off the Boat seem to be spared that fate.

I loved both Friday Night Lights and Chuck, but they both ran for five seasons. It's hard to say they were "cancelled way too soon", considering they both ran for two seasons longer than they probably should have. 

My vote would be for Happy Endings, but the stars may be aligning to get another season after it's way too short run, so I'll say Better Off Ted.
