TWIS is Up - Sept. 13, 2011
like you edged out my post by a minute or so. Double the hilarious of ND i suppose!
Yeah but you didn't abbreviate 'September' incorrectly (now fixed). The spleen is good on ND message boards...
As an aquarium enthusist I cannot condone the practices employed by Notre Dame fans.
I like climbing up the polls rather than being ranked 16 (ND) and 19 (UGA) and promptly coughing up two losses.
My thought after reading Brian's piece was that it could have easily been "there but for the grace of God go I".
" I will catch some fish that will be a f---ing asshole ( like a bass) where every time I feed it it will dominate, and then s--- out the remains. call me wierd but I got nothing left. I don't know what else to do. I look forward to the fall but the gets harder and harder each year." - random ND fan.
Quite correct. You are weird, but don't get down - you are NOT "wierd". Well, no, maybe you are that too.
when rapped over this beat:
Regarding the Oregon State lumberjack...I don't recall him at the Oregon State games I have been to, but they do pipe in an annoying chainsaw sound on third downs (think the Penn State Lion growl but more ear splitting).
Logging is a big industry here, and it has even helped fund OSU (NTOSU) to an extent, but it does seem odd to use him when the mascot if the Beaver.
The Timbers and a local high school (whose mascot is The Loggers) do use lumberjacks with chainsaws, but that just makes sense. Oregon State using one does not.
I googled "this week in schadenfreude 2011" and like the second link down is Brian's TWIS on something called 310 Sports Marketing, written by John Garcia. Is this guy Brian's "Richard Bachman" or a plagiarizing asshole? Or did I miss an attribution or something?
Edit: FWIW, this guy claims to be the agent of JMFJ.
I think it's hilarious that Iowa fans are pissed off over Ferentz's decision to chill out and play for OT with 90 seconds and two timeouts and the score tied. Indiana had exactly the same situation and some of their fans are pissed off because IU did the exact opposite. Because neither worked, of course.
is racist either. RR had some lame, insulting nicknames, as many losing coaches do. Maybe I'm missing something, which I'm going to consider a good thing
Check out the Penn State boards, which are in full meltdown mode after Joe Pa refused to name a starter between Bolden and Gritty McMoxie (stat line vs. Alabama: 1-10, 0 yards).
The best of which is this...
PSU is like North Korea We have an aged ruler who is living on a cult of personality, completely devoid of all rational perspective, trying to leave a crumbling dynasty to an incompetent son. Kim Joe Pa and Kim Jay Pa.
Del Griffith: I fell in love with a Michigan girl and I was the biggest asshole at the bar tonight with her friend (an Ohio state grad no less rooting for us) and said things I'm not proud of…. Alcohol and notre dame football post Lou are not a good combination.
irishbarrister: Did you stare at her chest as she caught 3 TDs too?
There's a new ghost in South Bend, and he wears #4.
