Thought I'd start a all night thread for all those like myself that either cant sleep or wont sleep. Anything goes so have at it.
maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
I like pie. That is all.
Like warm apple pie...
Jimmy Johns has the best subs and bread. Tubbys wins with the sauce.
Yeah, that. Thanks, I was having trouble with embedding, which is odd. Normally, it's fine.
No problem. I always switch to plain text editor and just copy and paste. It works most of the time.
Please play again
the first time I ever heard the term "jamming." I didn't know what people we're doing in the streets. I assumed it was a traffic jam caused by spontaneous dancing.
Please don't see the movie "Hop"... no matter how much your kids beg.
Really? I heard he poops jelly beans. Sounds like comedy gold to me!
you would think, but you would be wrong.
Anything remotely funny in the previews become not funny in the actual movie.
Thank you. I told them we can go to Rio instead. I'm glad I didn't give in. I hope Rio doesn't suck.
My wife, my daughters 13, 10 and 5 and I loved "Hop" it is hysterical. I guess you have to like British humor to enjoy it. I didn't want to see it but I went for the family unity thing and enjoyed it thoroughly.
I haven't heard anything about Devin's redshirt, maybe I was just out of it for a couple of days, but I was under the impression that we will be hearing about it later. Is this correct?
I believe that Brian recently posted a Hoke quote that mentioned that Gardner's redshirt would not be addressed until just before Devin's senior year.
Any idea why?
It is only 8:25 for me. I guess I have a long night in front of me.
Who is more lame, the insiders at GBMW, or the writer for Dayton who ruined Kaleb's announcement?
It is not even comparable. The guy who writes for the Dayton newspaper is more lame.
The mods at GBMW provide good information, it just might not be well written. The mods and posters their take little jabs at the old staff, but they don't/didn't ruin kids opportunity to announce a big decision.
Good point but I am going to argue the other side just for fun. GBMW gives some insider information with a heavy twist of agenda. They hate everything and anything brought in by the former coaching staff, so much so that their information becomes unreliable. Shitting on Denard and Molk to support their flawed arguements isn't much better than ruining a kid's announcement.
I agree with you about them having an agenda.
I had a real problem with the poster giving Gallon crap about being a "RR type" player. I guess its fine if you had an issue with the old staff, but it is not cool to drag players through the mud who did nothing, but give their all for Michigan.
Did you feel the same way when everyone around here (and to some extent, still do) was blaming the staff before Rich for all the problems of the world he inherited, and hearing how modern and cool things were now? Was it as icky?
Go to bed, sleep is important.
I know that spring ball is coming up, but am I the only one who can't wait for basketball to start
has anybody tried the new nike run free +3 shoes? I was thinking of buying a pair....or asking my gf to buy me a pair for my birthday and wondered if they are as amazing as they sound
I use the 2's and they are great if that helps. Be prepared to hate them at first if you aren't used to shoes with such little cushion. Once you get used to them, they are excellent.
While we're here, let's get to know each other. What are you're opinions on wearing a coat to a bar in the dead of winter. On the one hand, it is fucking cold walking around, especially if you have to wait in line outside. On the other hand, most bars are grossly hot and sweaty on the inside. So you have to use coat-check, which costs money. Also, coat-check is a giant pain in the ass when it's time to leave, there's usually a line, and the you have to tip the person getting your coat. The only other option is to leave your coat sitting somewhere, which is risky unless you stay in the same spot all night.
What are your thoughts on this incredibly important issue, especially in these tough economic times. I usually leave the coat at home and tough it out. People say I'm nuts, but who's laughing when we get inside and they start sweating like a non-legacy applying to Yale.
My strategy is to leave the coat at home and wear something mildly warm, but at the same time won't make me sweat my balls off while inside. My personal favorite is a cartigan.But after a few shots, and/or beers I become immune to the weather, and get that warm and tingly feeling and the apparel becomes irrelevant. Just my humble and honest opinion.
But I think that all depends on the walk doesn't it? It's like preparing for a voyage in the Pinta and asking how much food we should have. I don't know, how far are we going?
Some fine answers from you gentleman. It definitely depends on your overall plans. Something else to consider is that if you have your coat, it's an excellent move to offer up to a girl you're hoping to court. That is, if you already know her and have been putting in work. You can't break the ice with a jacket offering, that's creepy.
Common mistake I always made was to keep crap in the pockets: receipts, etc.
Also, how cold we talking here? I think a lot depends on the tolerance you have for cold too. I think the best way to gauge this is where in the middle of the walk you'll start to regret not wearing it.
I normally tough it out, with that said, if its really cold and I haven't had anything to drink yet, I'll sometimes throw a coat on.
I have an internal debate about the acceptable temperature and weather conditions for wearing or not wearing a coat everytime I head out to the bar in the winter. Am I being a puss? Is it really that cold? How drunk am I? Should I just drink more until I can't feel cold? It's exhausting.
I hate the coat check. If I get more than a little drunk, I end up leaving the damn thing there on my way to a cab anyway. Plus, it's irritating as balls to give money to the girl that gives you a bitchy looks as she hands your jacket over to you.
As you state, this is an incredibly important issue and we should probably discuss it at length.
I haven't found many good solutions. I've started wearing more blazers/sport jackets which sort of helps but sometimes that's just as hot as wearing a winter jacket. We need a solution.
On an unrelated note, bought Blue Mountain State season 1 on dvd tonight. I've seen a few episodes before, but if there are any immature sports comedy fans out there, this is better than I remember. (w00t: I think I saw BMS on Netflix on-demand if you have a subscription)
I am against wearing my coat at the bar. I am always hot. So no, I wouldn't consider it part of the "outfit".
I also feel like a bitch using the word outfit. I try, at all costs, to avoid using that word when discussing what I will wear for some weird reason. The images that cross my mind when I think of outfit are of stuff like this:
That purse is the color of bile...and don't even get me started on those blue suede booties. Gag.
Oh god...Look at that dress and those shoes...Sheesh....(or something to that effect..been a while since I've seen Airplane)
I'm not really a sportcoat or fancy guy. I tend to stick with classic, logo-less clothing . So I'm talking about a real coat when I ask the question. As far as temperature goes, I'm talking around freezing level. If it's only a little bit cold then there is no need for debate.
I was once in the "bring it with you" camp, coat check or no coat check. I was under the misguided and naïve impression that people were generally good and wouldn't steal my coat. I mean, come on, who steals a used coat from a bar? So, I walked into Rick's American Cafe on a cold January night without even a smidgen of a doubt that I would leave there both incredibly intoxicated and sufficiently warm. But alas, much to my chagrin only one of those things occured. I even tied it to a fucking stool in the back corner. Needless to say, unless I'm walking 10 miles through a blizzard the coat stays at home. And really, if its THAT cold, heat up some cider, put some rum in it and call it good. Who knows, maybe my mistake was in going to Rick's.
Leave it in the car
