I actually think it’s more that the Reds are stuck with Votto. They would have traded him to a contending team years ago if not for his Joe Mauer-esque contract.
This place is a second location of a restaurant that Corso Ventures already has in the Short North, but with Urban’s name and OSU memorabilia slathered all over it to be more attractive to suburbanites. Urban will have little to no involvement in its operation.
There was a cell that caused sirens to go off that just passed over the OSU campus. It’s heading east over Gahanna now. Fortunately, so far, it appears that the Columbus area may have avoided the worst of this system. Dayton, unfortunately, was not so lucky. There are reports of “catastrophic damage”.
It’s because he didn’t predict anything- he posted spoilers from the Freefolk thread on Reddit as a prediction.
Uh, I think I recall another B1G team’s fan base expecting to lure Stevens and Donovan when they had a coaching vacancy two years ago (and I don’t mean IU)...
If TTUN fans need a reality check, so do we.
Yeah, Jon got done real dirty there. He only gets to live out the rest of his days thousands of miles away from all of the people and political bullshit that he detests surrounded by a group of people who literally worship him as a messianic god-king. Such a terrible fate...
We do not kneel...
Having watched it again, the episode was extremely well-made, but, the problem with both it, and the entire last two seasons, is that Benioff and Weiss made the decision to cram about 30 episodes of material into 13 episodes. I understand that both the actors and showrunners wanted to do other things, but HBO was more than happy to give each of the last two seasons the budget for a full 10-episode count, so the decision to rush everything was unnecessary, IMO. Dany’s heel turn tonight could have been WAY more impactful and tragic if the story had more time to properly build to it. That said, it would be interesting to see how the fans and critics who are absolutely HATING this turn in the plot (this is by far and away the worst-reviewed episode in the history of the show so far) would have reacted to the Red Wedding if it already hadn’t been spoiled in the books 10 years before.
Yep. Jon is Azor Ahai and Dany is Nissa Nissa (and of you don’t get that reference because the stupid showrunners never bothered to mention it, then I suggest you check out A Wiki of Ice and Fire). Jon kills Dany and walks off to a self-imposed exile in the North like the Man with No Name.
Well, the Azor Ahai prophecy has the Prince who was Promised kill the love of his life to bring light to the world and save it from darkness, so, there’s that.
GRRM always said that this would have a bittersweet ending, but I fail to see anything sweet here. It’s actually fucking depressing.
I would normally say yes to that, but both Lynn Bruce and Tina Carano (and it’s sad that I even know these women’s names) have criminal records themselves. The apples didn’t fall very far from the trees in both cases.
I’m going to be on a trans-Atlantic flight Sunday night. I’m hoping that the plane’s Wi-Fi will let me access HBO Go, or I’ll have to wait to watch the episode on Monday night with the rest of Britain (AARGH!).
In other words: Russia, if you’re listening, I hope that you can find the next episode of Game of Thrones. I’m sure that you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts.
Just for old time’s sake...
An inability to understand the importance of a crucial situation? Wasting an obscene amount of talent? Must come with the name (sorry, Coop).
Holy. Fucking. Shit.
Guys; you can’t survive against what is essentially a 20-minute power play. Change the momentum!
“If you lose this game, you’ll take it to your graves. To your fucking graves!”
To steal a phrase from a t-shirt line, it is Ohio Against the World. The f’n league is going to do everything to screw you, so you have to win this your damn selves.
The league isn’t going to let the Jackets win this.
They CANNOT play this style of game and win. It’s that simple.
CBJ have missed a ton of opportunities to increase their lead tonight. You can’t do that.
CBJ fans are going to be incensed over the league overturning Atkinson’s PP goal (Would they do that for any other team?), but I think the bigger moment may be Bread not cashing in on a wide-open break to the net. Stamkos scored shortly after that to make it 2-1. I’ve got a horrible feeling that that might be the turning point in the entire series.
Not to point out the obvious, but I’m sure the mods would prefer that this conversation take place over at 1st Ohio Battery. That said, SWEEP THE GOD DAMNED MF’N LEG!!!! NO MERCY!! YOU HAVE THE MOUNTAIN DOWN; DON’T GIVE HIM A MOMENT TO CATCH YOU AND CRUSH YOUR SKULL!!
I’ll ask the dumb, yet obvious question: are she and the more famous Brax related? They’re both from the same neck of the woods.
